:, (A Correspondent.writes us as follows:)---I promised to tell you what was stirring at Hunter's River, the Court Settlement of New South Wales. The Cutter left Syd aey Cove at 8 P. M. and arrived at Newcastle before eight the following-morning. This is a pleasant packet, and the Captain a very pleasant gentlemanly fellow. The cabin is well fitted up, and ornamented with muskets pistols and cutlasses, .in case of pirates-there are also two cannon (I don't. know-how many pounders) on deck. I should have slept soundly the whole way, but in the hold there were some bullocks and a fine pig ; as the vessel: rolled,the pig was annoyed by the bullocks, which caused her to squeal and groan ever and anon, as I was dropping. asleep; I. don't like dumb beasts to be hurt, 'and a pig more especially, it is such a voluptuous animal, so' susceptible, and so gooo'-=-to elat at Newcastle, of of which I shall give you an account on my return. .

To the Editor of the MONITOR. Gorathca, June 1, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 June 1826
'Tothe Bitor of the MoNiToi. - Gorathca; June 1, 1826. NoTr having had, at an earlier period, an opportunity of adverting to a paragraph in the Prospectus of the first num ber of the Monitor, reflecting on the body of Colonists whom on choose to denominate Emancipists, I shall now, though .e the liberty of animadverting on the observations you S- ein made. ::Sir, have visited them with the heaviest editorial cen td' for what? because their love of quietness and iislike of expense,, have, in your opinion, induced them to neglect the suit laudably commenced in the Supreme Court. To censure a body of-people for a love of quietness, surely edmes with a bad grace from the Editor of the Monitor. What would the Monitor inculcate the propriety of the E.mancipists seizing the Sheriff by the shoulders and shaking him till he consent to enrol their names in the'Jury list? would Me advise them to beset in a riotous tumultous manner, the Jidgment-seat in order to overawe its decisions? No Mr. Mo...

To CORRESPONDENTS.-The sensible letter of X Y.Z is received, but we cannot insert it, lest we should be accused of sounding our own praises. We sincerely thank X Y Z how- ever for his commendations, and agree with him, that our last leading article if liberally and critically considered, was un- &nbsp; objectionable even to the greatest enemies of Mr. ----- &nbsp; The letters respecting the new Gothic Roman Catholic Chapel and our remarks thereon, will appear in our next.

Supreme Civil Court. MONDAY, JUNE 5, 1826. REX, v. BROADBEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 June 1826
Supreme Civil Court, &nbsp; MONDAY, JUNE 5, 1826. &nbsp; REX v. BROADBEAR. AFTER some explanations between the Attorney General (the private counsel of three of the six magis trates at Parramatta, implicated in this case, and crown solicitor for the other four) and Mr. Wentworth; coun sel for the defendant, it was agreed, that the proceedings should be assumed to be all before the court, and that the latter should bring forward his application to quash the late conviction at Parramatta. Mr. Wentworth, therefore, proceeded with his case by observing, that he had ten legal objections to take against the decision of the magistrates of Parramatta. (IT will be necessary that we should here state in brief the history of this case. The Rev. W. Walker, lately resigned the mastership of the Female Orphan school. A man named Broadbear, and his wife, who had been employed in the school-house as menial servants, not choosing to remain after Mr: W's resig nation, left the school ...
THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE, 9, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 9 June 1826
THE MRONITOR. N -W FRIDAY, JUNE, 9, 1826. Tui female portion of our Convict population has. lately occupied the attention of our Contemporaries, par-. ticularly of The Australian, who, whatever deficiency there may be in his plans, certainlyseemns to evince a laudable anxiety on the subject. We are surprised how ever he should not have propounded his schemes for the amelioration of woman-kind in New South Wales, with out reflecting upon other reformers of females. "Why call the opinions of cdadjutors "the intermeddlings of affectcd Philanthropists" and themselves "false moralist,' " The Wilberforcean opinions prevailed for a time, amta;' the really pious folks were duped into a belief, &c. .&c;" . Now in the first place, such opinions as bere mentioned were not those of any person in existence, (from what ap. pears to the contrary,) but the opinions intended to be alluded to, were those of Mr. Grey Bennet, Mr. Buxton, and Mrs. Fry, and not of Mr. Wilberforce. And we ...

MILTON'S LATELY DISCOVERD TREATISE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826
.MItl'OV'S LATELY DISCOVERD TRE-ATISE. (Continued from our last.) " If, therefore, I mention what has proved benificial in imy own practice, it is in the hope that others, who have a similar wish in improving themselves, may be thereby invited to pursue the same method. I entered upon an assiduous course of study in my youth, begining with the books of the Old and New Testament in their original languages, and going diligently through a -few of the shorter systems of divines, in imitation of whom I was in the habit of classing under certain heads whatever passage of Scripture occured for attraction, to be made use of-hereafter as occasion may require. At length I resorted with increased confidence to some of the more copious theological treatises, and to the eiamination of the arguments advanced by the conflicting parties res pecting certain disputed points of faith. But, to speak ie. truth with freedom as well as candour, I was con cerned to discover in many instances adverse reaso...

Original Poetry, by a Lady. TO THE ÆOLIAN HARP. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826
®riginaI gattry, by a ILaby. TO THE JEOLIAN IIARP. MosT pleasing warble thy wild flowing notes Sweet simple instrument! 0 I could pause ]leneath some thick-wove canopy of elms To hear thy music, e'en from morn, till night Should spread her thickest veil! Ah then 'tis sweet To hear thy soft sighs melancholy breathe, As the wild zephyr flutters o'er thy strings On silken pinions! Hark! now a pensive lay That wakes the soul to sympathy and love Steals on my ravished ear-it dies away In soft faint murmurs-now again 'tis high, And swelling loud and louder, in bold notes. Peals forth the anthem, or the choral song Of steel-clad heroes !-Now, so sweet the sounds, That fancy thinks no mortal touch could make Such harmony divine; but deems they flow From the full choir of celestial harps Attun'd by Seraphs in the realms of love To praise their Maker! Ah! were it mine to dwell Far far retir'd from the busy throng, Thy murmurs, mingling with the moss-fring'd brook, Should lull my soul to happi...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826
FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 1826. THE proceedings of the bench of magistrates at Par- ramatta, in the affair Rex v. Broadbear, of the argument of council respecting which, we gave in our last a long report, were quashed on Friday last by the solemn decision therein by the Chief Justice. Way has this trivial matter excited so much public interest? and why is the decision just mentioned con sidered a triumph of the people over the magistrates ? NOT because the matter itself was any thing-not because the people cared a great deal about the plaintiff, or any thing at all about the defendant--or that they think Broadbear was right; (for many who rejoice in the decision alluded to, think he was wrong in adopting the feelings of the plaintiff, and suddenly abandoning his post)-or that it is a good thing that the Act of 6 Geo. III. 26, don't apply in New South Wales, for many, ourselves among the number, are disappointed in finding it does not. What then was it, we iterate, which caused such general s...

MRa JOHN RAINE attracts the admiration of all visit- - ants to the Darling Mills by his great labours and great success. The steam engine grinds night and day, anti two pair of stones are about to be added. If a man of enterprise deserve praise in proportion to the amount and ditliculty of his undertaking-and if that amount and difficulty be such as to call down the censures of his friends and derision of his enemies-and if nevertheless the p;udence and wisdom of the undertaking be finally demonstrated by its being crowned with complete suc ,cess-why then John Raine, Esq. is the man that de serves to carry away the palm, and therefore we say success to him and all men of enterprise and public spirit. Wa are not so much astonished that men for the sake of an immense booty, should be tempted to run the risk - of transportation by receiving stolen goods, because covetousness in man as a violent propensity, is notorious, and the love of money is an universal failing. But that persons wh...
