ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 January 1827

e ENGLISH MISCELLANIES. THE MINISTERIAL PRESS.--On Monday last, the Representative, which has been in a declining way since ) the hour of its birth was inccrporated with the Nezo Times. -Such has been the lame impotent conclusion of Mr. r MURRAY'S grand project,-a project conceived in much r arrogance, and executed with a proportionate imbecility. Considering the extravagant pretension with which the Paper ,was ushered into the world, its miscarriage is especially ludicrous ; and considering the rare advantages possessed by its Proprietor, its failure is even more extra ordinary than it is ridiculous. :Extensively connected as Mr. MURRAY is with literary men, his journal' has never been relieved by a single scintillation of talent. It has been tried at all points, it has sailed on every wind, and been found on each a dull sailor. : It began with a lofty 'pretention, but in its very first essay at a sublime inflation, like the frog in the fable, it unhappily burst itself, and was the...

T'I' THE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR, SIR, As a Subscriber to your inestimable Journal, I beg the liberty of availing myself of the medium of your columns, ever open to the exposition of abuse and individual grievance, to make known a case of much hardship.

T l .? !1MO i I ORI SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 1897. TnE GAZETTE of Tuesday apprised the public of the Venerable the Archdeacon intending once more to appear in our Courts as a public prosecutor, by his having given instructions to W. H. Moore, Esq. to institute proceed-. ings against The Australian Newspaper and this Journal, for our alleged attacks upon the Corporation of Church and School Lands. We have inquired into this ruimour, and find much mystery connected with it. We have however reason to believe the report was correct so far as that the Archdeacon did complain iq? writing of the said Journals to the Governor; not however on account of the Corporation, but on account of the Church of England, the venerable Dignitary considering Doctor Wardell's quizzes and jokes on the said Church's sei zing such large portions of the best of our land to the detriment of new comers and stoppage of emigration, deserving of his spiritual wrath. Now, with profound deference to the Venerable Gentl...

We have been requested by a Correspondent to give a place in our Columns to the following Critique upon AURORA AUSTRALIS; Or, Specimens of Sacred Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 January 1827

We have bren requested by a Correspondent to give a place in our Columns to thefollowing Critique upon (AURORA AUSTRALIS; Or, Specimens of Sacred Poetry. IT not unfrequently happens that in the professional exer cise of the task of Criticism, the moral excellencies of a work are partially, often, entirely overlooked, while a scrutinizing eye is directed, and a minute attention paid, to the measure of rhymes, the harmony of numbers, or some fastidious rule of Poesy-this betrays in our opinion caprice, or at least-a-want of genuine taste. The principles, the actuating motives, must in a rational mind, have a priority of claim, to correctness of metre; purity of language is indispensible, inasmuch as Poetry is a source of refinement ; a reader of verse finds his ideas ex pand, and his language and manners intentivelv receive a soft ness and a polish-such is our opinion, and with this idea we take up Dr. Lang's Poems. THE Author's Invocation to the "Muse of Zion" breathes a truly Christ...

SELECT POETRY. TIME'S CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 January 1827

SELECT POETRY. TIME'S CHANGES. I saw her once-so- freshly fair •That, like a blossom just unfolding, She open'd to life's cloudless air, And Naturejoy'd to view its moulding: Her smile, it haunts my memory yet Her cheeks' fine hue divinely glowing Her rose-bud mouth-her eyes of jet--. Around on all their light bestowing : Oh ! who could look on such a form, So nobly free, so softly tender, And darkly dream that earthly storm Should dim such sweet, delicious splendour! Nought could the raptur'd gazer trace But Beauty's glow, and Pleasure's brightness ! I sAw her twice-an alter'd charm But still of magic, richest, rarest ; Than girlhood's talisman less warm, Though yet of earthly sights the fairest. Upon her breast there lay a child, The very image of its mother: Which ever to her smiling smiled- They seemed to live but in each other! But matron cares, or lurking woe, Her thoughtless sinless look, had banished, And from her.cheek the roseate glow Of girlhood's balmy morn, had vanished...

THE ANNIVERSARY DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 January 1827

THE ANNIVERSARY DINNER. Tins dinner assumed an unusual importance this year; at all events, from the delightful harmony that prevailed, the excellent order and management of the Toasts and Music, and last, but not least, the profusion of the best viands, (remarkably well cooked) and of wines, (including therein a good supply of Champagne) we beg to inform such of our merchants who did, not do themselves the honour of being present, that .if:they like exchanging some of the best sympathies of our nature with their fellow citizens, they would have enjoyed themselves last night in the new Court-House. And this reminds us of the room,-lofty, spacious, with a pleasing echo, indi cating thie presence of municipal wealth,and which gives one a pleasing idea of magnitude and civic state. No other room in the Colony is fit fo be noticed hereafter, as a dining room. It held tables for 130 guests, with ample. space between each set. Two hundred might dine in the room.

TuE ENCHANTED IsLAND.-Those of our readers who saw Mr.. Danby's Enchanted Island two years since in the British Institution Gallery, ivill recollect (for it is impossible with any health of imagination that they can forget) its bea.utiful tree-overhanging rocks and mounds, its sun, looking with half-concealed eye through its deeply shaded foliage; its mysterious looking caverns, in one of which a fairy is at her mystic rites before an alter; its air-and-water disporting nymphs; its knots of trees beautifully bordering the transparently watered shore its light, in whose refulgence the mixed woody and high-cliffed shore, distantly blend in fine perspective. As far as mezzotinto is capable of transferring these beauties in chiaroscuro, it has been done by Mr. Phillips, in a large octavo size plate. He has indeed rendered the Claude-like or rather summer evening and poetical effect of Mr. Danby's picture so truly, that we should be surprised if the demand for this print did note outrun ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. 'c ? ?y we admire,- by any means, the stric Stoe the.Ga·ette has deemed it necessary to make upon thtt-very reipectable body- of men, the Comnmittee of the Amateur Concert. We say, strictures upon the com mittee, because the Gazette influentially finds fault with their conduct, when he hints that due exertion has not been made in gaining the acquisition of female vocalists. It ought ever to be remembered, (before public censure be indulged in, either openly or by inuendo) that the Com mittee of the Amateuir Concert were not like the paid managers of a public theatre; but that they were the public-spirited, we may almost shy patriotic originators of a pastime, which, considering the difficulties to be encountered, has, we consider, been highly creditable to' them. It also ought to be remembered, that the same public spirit which originated, carried into effect the plan; and that every exertion was made by the com mittee to obtain female and other professional t...
