A numerous and &nbsp; highly respectable congregation attended on the occasion, and the Rev. K. D. Smythe delivered &nbsp; a particularly excellent ,and appropriate sermon from 1 Kings--c. viii. v. 66, on the dedication &nbsp; of the temple of Jerusalem. The Bathurst kirk has been raised with an extraordinary prompti- tude, exhibiting a spirit of liberality and purity of feeling,which, in so limited a circle, is un- equivocally indicative of an advanced moral position, and affords a pleasing developement of the ...

SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 11 June 1835
SCHOOL OF ARTS. THE Rev. H. Carmichael, A.M., delivered an Introductory Lecture yesterday evening, to the &nbsp; members of the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts. The Lecture was intended to exhibit the advantages arising from the general diffusion of &nbsp; knowledge among the industrious classes of so- ciety, and in the course of it, the Lecturer held up to its merited reprobation a sentiment recently advanced by the Editor of The Monitor, to the effect that the industrious classes of society might be too well educated. The attendance was numerous, and the Lecture, which was rather of a discursive character, was well received. T::i e Australian School Society's Boys' School was ; ipened at Hart's. Buildings, Pitt Street, on Monday and is now in full operation, and promises to do well.

THE LATE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 18 June 1835
THE LATE PUBLIC MEETING. rs TIHr Public, we are sorry to find, are by no means satisfied with the result of the late Pub= lic Meeting for the appointment of a Parliament ary agent, &c., &c. We stated our own objections to the measure at first; but we were willing to waive them, in the hope that something might really be done by the meeting for the public welfare. But the prevalent impression on the subject since the meeting actually took place, has by no means realized this expectation. In deed, it is generally believed, that the afiifir ha been got up-partly at least, to create a situation for Mr. Simon Doolittle,a great friend of the co lony, doubtless, residing in Sydney, but who, of course is soon to reside in London. Now, although the Doolittles are a very clever family, we have yet to learn why the colony should entrust them with the transaction of' its public business, or make them the recipients of its ready money. And as for memorializing His Excellency the ...
