TO TITC DITEOR OU TIl Sydnejy Monitor and CommeTrcal Advertiser. Instinct of the Horse* The follow.ing incident shews the supe rior instinct of the horse-it was commu nicated to me in'a letter from my friend Mr. John Miles, a very excellent` animml painter, residing in North Leach, Gloster shire:-" I. cannot help telling you of an incident .which happened at Farmington yesterday, uinder my observation ; .it shows the strong instinct possessed by the horse.

A CIRCULAR." : r We 'have received a.. printd Circular signed " Colonus." and; entitled '"" Waste Lands the means of Colonization." -It was lately published in the'ColoniSt newspaper. The theory of the writer is-destroyed in some parts,-and in others the-reasoning-is .only partially true, by the author not con -sidering the destruction in- this; Colony-of food, and consequently of capital, through continued droughts. His views-proceed 'from thie assumption, that our. climate an:l the productions of the soil,. are as regular as those uf -South Australia,'England,-and 'France-at +ieast he-iridicates nothing to - the contrary.Yet all theories on population and produetion, wtihout this datum-entering into the calculatitm, must be fallacious. The richness of thie soil of a country is of no avail, unless there be sufficient moisture to make it. productive. Writers in Europe and America cilculate the capacity-of a country to-maintain popu lation, according to its -fertility.- It will' main...

Port Phillip. WANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 5 December 1838
Port Phillip. Extracts from the Port Phillip Gazette, of the 3rd and 10th November :-- WANTS. We have a few more lines in pursuance &nbsp; of our last, to add about the post--for every day brings fresh proof of the want of a better regulation in that department. And first we would wish to observe, that al- though the postmaster, we are certain, endeavours to give every satisfaction in the discharge of his duty, yet as he also fills the situatinn of police clerk, he must be possessed of a certain power of ubiquity to &nbsp; pay proper attention to both, and therefore we would point out to those in authority the propriety of an additional salary to this official ; especially when they consider that the great increase of the town, and conse- quently of the interchange of communica- tion will more than suffice to clear all costs, that he (the postmarter) may devote his whole time to that duty, in the manage- ment of which the public at large are so deeply interested.
