GREAT BRITAIN. THE FORTIETH GENERAL MEETING OF THE LONDON MISSIONARY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835
GREAT SRITAZN. THIE FORTIETH GENERAL- .MEETINGI: OF- THE LONDON .MISSIONARY .SO CIETY. . " T.in' Annual Meeting of the Society iwas held; at -Exeter Hall, where, as usual,. the friends of the.. Society began to arrive at an early hour. : The'. large, hall being inadequate to the accommodation. of the numbers who attended, the lower hall also was .opened, where an abstract of the Annual' Report was read, and several ministers, and other gentlemen, delivered appropriate addresses.. But' even -this additional accommodation proved in sufficient, and some hundreds were obliged to return, as on former occasions, without'shariiig in . this part of the privileges of the anniversary.' The meeting was both respectable and, nu-* merous, and was characterised by a delightful manifestation of those feelings of sacred joy and: gratitude, which the communications -made ,of:. such occasions are so well fitted to inspire in. the' mind of the Christian.

An Historical Account of New South Wales [SECOND NOTICE.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835
An Historical Account, of New South Wales By JOHN DUNMORE LANG, D.D.' [SECOND NOTICE.] GOVERNOR KING was succeeded in August 1806 &nbsp; by Captain 'Bilgh, celebrated as the commander of the Bounty when the crew of that ship mu- tinied and sent himself and their other officers adrift in the long-boat. Dr. Lang has entered into an elaborate defence of Governor Bligh's ad- ministration; but we cannot say that he has been successful in his attempt to make out for the subject of his laudation any thing more than a claim to be considered a person of right inten- tions. He was evidently a very weak man, and neither fitted by natural talents nor acquirements for the post to which he was promoted. In the contest with Mr. Macarthur which eventually led to his removal, and of which a long account is given in the work, he appears to have been wrong throughout; that is to say, by his mixed indecision and precipitancy, no uncommon com- bination, he evidently gave his opponents the legal ...

IN pursuance of a plan of the Home Govern ment of 1819, to colonize the Caffer frontier of c, the Hottentot territory, a free passage was offered w to emigrants on. certain conditions, and some of contingent advantages were promised on their ft arrival. Among the intended settlers was the h family of the Pringles. The father and the ti brothers, our author excepted, were agriculturists. f Thomas, the poet and littdrateur, went out with the final intention of procuring a situation under Government, or assisting in forwarding the march of intellect among the Cape colonists. His first object, however, was to see his friends and family a safely located. It argues a good deal in favour of his sagacity and practical shrewdness, to find n that a body of cautious Scotchmen selected him s1 as their represe...

T'HE SOUTHERN SEAS BY MRS. HOWITT.

Colonial Politics. EMIGRATION—AND NO JOB. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835
EMIGRATION--AND NO JOB. &nbsp; In our last number we took occasion to exhibit the extremely evil tendency, and the thoroughly unprincipled management, of the present system of Female Emigra- tion to New South Wales. We are dis- posed, however, to take higher ground, and are ready to maintain that any system of female emigration, however wisely planned and disinterestedly conducted, is highly objectionable in itself, and highly danger- ous to the moral and spiritual welfare of this colony. &nbsp; The disproportion in the numbers of the sexes in New South Wales, to which the advocates of female emigration are con- stantly appealing in England, is confined chiefly to the prison-population; and it must be borne in mind that of that popula- tion the greater number are prohibited from marrying; the Government con- ceiving that a male convict is not in a con- dition to maintain a wife and family during his term of bondage. Again, the abun- &nbsp; dance of convict-la...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835
TO CORRESPONDENTS. We have received a long and able communication written expressly for THE COLONIST,from " One who knows," &nbsp; with the general sentiments of which we entirely accord, &nbsp; although our recent arrival in the Colony precludes us from the possibility of having yet attained an accurate knowledge of the particular facts and cases to which it &nbsp; alludes. We shall be most happy to give it insertion, pro vided our respectable correspondent will allow it to lie over for two or three weeks, till we have got through a certain number of subjects of the first importance to the general welfare of this colony, for the discussion of which in pre ference to all others, we had made arrangements previous to the commencement of our Journal. We intended to insert the communication of "A Re- former," under the head of Religious Intelligence in our &nbsp; present number, but the length of the Report of the meet ing in the Old Court-House on the ev...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 15 January 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sir.-The introduction of an epidemic into a country, where its existence was previously &nbsp; unknown, is scarcely less calculated to awaken &nbsp; interest in the mind of the medical enquirer,than to excite the apprehensions of those likely to be- come subject to its influence. In a medical point of view, it is interesting as exhibiting either, peculiarities by which it establishes to itself a character, altogether distinct from that of every other previously known form of disease , or if these peculiarities be wanting, it is a subject of no less importance to determine, what are the analogies it presents to those forms of disease, &nbsp; which are recognized under certain well-known appellations. The scientific observer will be pre pared to expect modifications and shades of dif ference, the result of difference of climate, in it, the same as in almost ever other description of &nbsp; disease; nor will he presume to d...

THE CU?TTERl ROSE.--The?fate of the Rose is now: beyond doubt, as the hull of a vessel, with . Rose of Liverpool " on her stern', and part of a boat, are now lying, on Tuggerah Beeah. It is supposed that she stood too close in shore when the southerly gale came on, and could not reach off again. The fast-sailing schooner Caroline wvai purchased on Tuesday last, at public auction, by Captain Fo theringham, for the sum of 6701.

WOOL. WtE have been favoured .with the perusal of a circulaX from Mr. Abram Gartside, of Liverpool, and- the following extract from it. will doubtless be esteemed' of value by many readers of this Journal. Liverpool, 7th Sept., 1834. A" series of. Wool Saies commenced on Thursday: last, consisting of 3275 bales of various descriptioions out of which 1890 bales were sold, the remainde were Buenos Ayres, Magadore, and other inferior wools, for which there are very few buyeis except'at a very low figure, .The attendlance was very numerous, and a, good competition was experienced from the dealers and manufacturers for the New South Wales descriptions, which went off at 1d. to 2d. per lb. above the last June sale here, and the last London sales, conisider= ing the difference in qualities. This wool is every day getting iuto greater reputation with the cloth and . kerseymere manufacturers; and for combing purposes there is none equfal. Italian wools for some time past have been held above...

A demand has been made upoin the` Queen 'for the damage sustained, amounting to the sum of.2800 dollars, which she has agreed to: pay in pearl shells.
