THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 22 December 1826

THE MEONITOR. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1826. W~EDNESDAY'S Gazette contained so copious and accu rate a report of the action brought against the Propri etors of this Journal by Mr. Hannibal M'Arthur for a libel on him, that we feel it .unnecessary to publish.any regular report of it ourselves. We shall however discuss the merits of the question between us and Mr. M'Arth;ur at some length, and recapitulate some of the facts and arguments which were brought before the consideration of the Court on the said trial. In Mlonitor No. 19, of date the 22nd of September, we commented in our Leading Article on certain documentq which had. been laid before Parliament the previous Session, by which it appeared that many, of the Magis trates of this Colony, among the rest Mr. II. M',Arthur, had been present at decisions wherein according to the opinion of members as well as a previously expressed opinion of our Attorney General and Chief Justice, tor ture had been inflicted .by them in this Colony in ...

WE are happy to see Government are compelled to give Messrs. Fopp and Thomson four-pence half-penny per lb. sterling for beef. And yet while the grass is so scarce that the increase of our population above that of fat beasts, causes beef to rise 25 per cent, Government talks of taxing the Creator's grass, which he gives boun- tifully to all who will find it out and make use of'it!   MRS. BODENHAM, we learn, gives universal satisfaction to the ladies, in the display of millinery and drapery she is enabled to spread before the fashionables of Sydney. AFTER a delay of two months, which we consider harsh and impolitic, the Government has returned an   answer to the application of the Roman Catholic Priest the Rev. J. J. Therry, to be allowed to marry according to the rites of his Church thirteen couples. Eight cou- ples are refused to be allowed to marry, because they are all prisoners without tickets-of-leave. This in a Colony where there are five or ten men t...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 22 December 1826

A clever man who signs himself John Bull, wrote a lively Article in Wednesday sen'nights Australian, which we consider of sufficient importance to comment upon. He professes respect for Adam Smith, but says the latter wrote for an old country not for a Colony like New South Wales. We: disagree with John Bull, and we cannot help suspecting he disagrees with himself; for he is too acute an observer and too much of a mer chant apparently not to know better. We suspect he is a Distiller or a large importer of Coffee, and so has con sented to shut his own eyes to the light thrown on the subject of duties as handled by Doctor Smith. The principles of the latter are elementary and universal not local and temporary. Take away Adam Smith's universality, and you reduce him from a philosopher to a mere tax-maker or custom-house officer. But to the facts and reasoning of our ingenious friend John. WtE are not going to criticise those little descriptive flourishes with which Mr. Bull is pleased ...

DIED, On Monday Morning last, at his Residence in Macquarie Place, Commodore Sir James Brisbane, K. C. B. It is with feelings of the most poignant regret, that we have to announce the death of Commodore Sir James Brisbane, Knight Commander of the Most Honourable Military Order of the Bath, which took place last Monday Morning, at his Residence in Macquarie Place. In him, the Empire has lost one of her oldest and most gallant defenders :-In him, the Royal Navy have lost one of the brightest ornaments of the Service :-In him, his Lady has lost a HUSBAND, his Family, a FATHER, and the World, a MAN! Requitescat in Pace!   THE FUNERAL. WE were much gratified in witnessing this solemn pageant. Our pleasure arose from more than one cause. First, that melancholy joy which causes us to exult when departed worth appears to command a due measure of public respect. Secondly, we were proud that this little Metropolis could furnish a pro- cession so superb, and in all respects so imp...
