TO THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR, [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 29 December 1826

To THE EDITOR OF THE. MONITOR, SIR, IN your publication of last Friday, you thought proper to anima.lvert very strongly on the apparently honest, good-na tured, and disinterested effus:on of ktubio, which appeared iii the Australian of the 2nd instant. Ritbio, in a small degree,' appears tb have fallen into the same 'error as many a sanguine S-ttrler has before him; but I will maintain on the! part ot Itubio, that his.description or journal, if not literally correct, is prdisewortliy, and not at all deserving the censure you have, cast upon it ;-for a 'stranger to sally forth to our interior set tlcnuents, whose explorations previously had not extended bevond Parramatta or Liverpool, he can scarcely tail to feel a glow of enthusiasm on seeing the line, open, and park-like appearance, contrasted with the specimens of this fam'd land he htli before seen-then as Rubio appeared to write from the scene whien gave him pleasure, I see nothling seriously repre. hensible, if an his ardour at...

SYDNEY GAOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 29 December 1826

SYDNEY GAOL. AN investigation took place, last week but one, by two Magistrates, into certain misconduct and abuses complained of in the officers of the Sydney Gaol. The under Gaoler was accused of repeated drunkenness, brutal behaviour, and extor- tion of money from a Debtor, &c. The first and last charges were indisputably established; the second appeared to have occurred in a single instance, toward a visitor, "Mr. John Smith, of Newcastle." Even Mr. Steel, the head Gaoler was obliged to admit, "that he had, several times, seen his Deputy   in a state of inebriety." (QUERE.-Why is the "principal" suffered to be non-resident, and to perform the duties of his office by proxy, making almost a sinecure of his appointment?) THE Magistrates have not yet made public their decision. THE arrangement of the interior of this "Den of Cacus" is little known, and ought to be developed to the Public. Within its confines, are seven rooms for male prisoners; and one for femal...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1826. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 29 December 1826

"THE MONITOR.     FRIDAY,' DECEMBER 29, 1826     THE narration of poor Thomas Taylor's death, the herdsman, of Argyle, who was barbarously and wan- tonly murdered by the natives, and whose murderers have never been brought to trial, though one of them was captured at great expense, has in it circumstances of more interest than commonly attends these interior outrages. Sometime in the month of May last, a great   concourse of natives, inhabitants of parts beyond Lake George, were returning from Bong-bong, whither they had assembled some weeks before to assist in performing certain ceremonies of their nation, particularly that of knocking out the front tooth. Of these tribes, one company called at Mr. Hall's Farm, at Lake Bathurst, and seemed mischievous, but from the bold front shewed them by the men in the hut, they betook themselves off. The next morning they were found in the neighhour- hood, at a hut of Mrs. Sherwin...

THE DEVIL'S RAMBLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 6 January 1827

THE DEVIL'S RAMBLE.   [By some, these verses have been attributed to Mr. SOUTHEY; by others, to Mr. COLERIDGE; but it is now.   generally believed that the late Professor PORSON was the author of them.] From his brimstone bed, at the break of day, The DEVIL a-walking is gone, To visit his snug little farm of the Earth, And see how his stock goes on. And over the hill, and over the dale, He rambled, and over the plain, And, backwards and forwards he switch'd his long tail, As a gentleman switches his cane.   " And pray now, how was the devil dresse'd?" Oh, of course in his Sunday's best; His coat was black, and his breeches were blue, With a hole behind that his tale went through. He saw a Lawyer killing a Viper On a dunghill beside his own stable; And the DEVIL he smiled, for it put him in mind Of CAIN and his brother ABEL. He saw an Apothecary, on a white horse, Ride by on his avocation; And the devil he grin'd,for it put him in mind &...
