MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
MARKETS. Wet weather was the cause of a very scanty supply being again exhibited in the market, but prices were not affected by it. About 500 bushels of WHEAT were brought to market, and sold from 6s. to 7s. 6d. per bushel. That from the New Country was the finest, and produced the best prices. MAIZE was more in demand than last week, bnt remained stationary. OATS, BARLEY, and RYE nominal, and but little in- quired after. DAIRY PRODUCE scarce as usual, and at high quotations. POULTRY firm, at our late prices. VEGETABLES much sought after, and maintain a good figure. In cattle, sheep, and horses, but little business has been done during the last week.

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. We thank our Correspondent for his sketch of the life of Henry Bell, and shall always feel obliged by his communications. " Valentia" shall be inserted, if the writer will assure us of its originality. The letter of " A. Z," has been received, but it cannot be admitted, and we will thank him to return us the 10d., which we unwittingly paid for postage. We are sorry to inform " Fidelis" that his letter was illegible, except that part containing the names of several new Subscribers ! We hope to hear from him when restored to convalescence. We have refrained from publishing the letter of " A disappointed Australian ;" as, in our opinion, it would do the parties advocated much injury ; he should recollect, that we are, at present, a perfectly defenceless, and a de- pendent colony. " B," will appear in our next, curtailed. Our Hawkesbury friend has our best thanks for his account of the races, but as they have already appeared, we think it unnecessary to insert ...

Original Poetry. To my Neglected Violin. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
Original Poetry. &nbsp; To my Neglected Violin. &nbsp; &nbsp; I. Thou instrument of mirth ! how sweet the tone That used to vibrate from thy tuneful string; My cares were soothed when thee I grasped alone, No art I knew, save melody to bring In simple sound—to make thy wild notes ring, As they were wont to do, in days of old, When some bright fair her sweetest song would sing, Before some breathless youth, or lover bold— Or tale of hapless love, in garden bow'r unfold. II. Oft have I struck thy pleasing chords in vain, Essayed some fav'rite strathspey lo recall ; Or struck again some soft melodious strain, That pleased the fair one's ear at route or ball, &nbsp; All falsely my unbending fingers fall : Thy strings discordant yield not to my lays So truly stopt—so wildly musical. No thrill of pure delight to me conveys Thy tone ;—I cannot bring the sounds of other days. III. But, solace of my woes, now shall be hung ; My Violin ! conspicuous in my room—...
Select Poetry. LOVE SICK WILLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
Select Poetry. —oo— LOVESICK WILLY. —o— &nbsp; &nbsp; The following, after Hood's style, the author of " Whims and Oddities," is from a Yankee Paper. One Willy Wright, who kept a store. But nothing kept therein, Save earthen jugs, and some few kegs, Of whiskey, ale, and gin, Grew sick, and often would exclaim, &nbsp; " Oh, how my heart does burn ! " And every week the poor man liv'd— He had a weakly turn. Now, when they saw him thus decline, Some said that Death must come ; Some wonder'd what all this could be Some said his ale was rum. At last the very cause was known Of every pang he felt :— Remote, at one end of the town. Miss Martha Towns end dwelt. And Willy long had sought and sighed. To gain this pretty maid ; "I have no trade (said he), so sure My love can't be betrayed."' To Martha, then, he trembling went, And said, " My dear, 'tis true. Though I have nothing in my store, I've love in store for you. "And if thou wilt, thou may'st become," And here h...
Original Corresponnence. TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." Lower Hawkesbury, Wiseman's, August 10, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." Lower Hawkesbury, Wiseman's, August 10, 1831. Gentlemen,—" The new regulations for issuing and accounting for provisions and other articles furnished by the Commissariat, to the civil and convict depart- ments of New South Wales," printed at the Gazette Office, are found not sufficiently explicit, as regards the registers to be kept and tendered by the different overseers of road parties and iron gangs. The follow- ing queries were, I am given to understand, submitted to a Commissariat Storekeeper, who desired the mes- senger to call again—scratched his head, and then re- ferred to a clerk of the road department, who could not be supposed to be better able to put a proper con- struction on the regulations in question, than a person belonging to the department, from which it it pre- sumed they originated. The following are the queries ; namely— Are the ticket of leave overseers to receive rations ? Are the overseers on p...

The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 12 September 1831
The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th, 1831. —o— "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am L." " How will persons in the distant Colonies, obtain seats in the Legislature, but by the Boroughs ?" This question was proposed to Lord John Russel on the first night of the de- bate, on the Reform Bill, by Sir R. H. Inglis ; and, though an important ques- tion to us and to many others, it is not of such magnitude as to stop the progress of such a measure. Canada has long had ample experience of the benefits arising from the services of Mr. Labouchere and Mr. Baring. The West Indies have Mr. Ellis, Mr. Burge, and others, as regular representatives ; and the East India Com- pany have a host of talented and wealthy men, intimately acquainted with the interests, capabilities, and resources of the Presidencies. It gives us plea- sure, therefore, to see an Ultra Tory re- cognise the principle that such distant dependencies should be represented ; and we trust it will not be lost sight of in the def...
