To THE EDITOR P T IE AMONITOR .I am, a. Churchman, but one of that sect in the Church usually. denominated evangelical ; a word I which is beginning to be much perverted. I have been in the Colony some years; and from reading in the SSydney Gazette, that New South Wales was the Head Quai-ters of the Missions to the South Sea Islands, and reading a good de'al 'in the same journal about Bible Missionary and Benevolent Associations in Syd ney; I concluded I should benefit my spiritual interests full as much-as I hoped to do my temporal,. by emi ? grating thither.. SIam sorry to say, that although in my temporals 'Ihave done tolerably well, I have been disappointed. .in regardjto religion. In the first place, I have found cer tain ministers of religion, both in and out of the esta blishment, regarding each other with envy and dis 1itrust, rather than Christian love . in some instances :]not even maintaining that exterior semblance of bro iteriv affection, which is- so necessary to avoid...

THE MONITOR. MONDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1828. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 29 December 1828

MONPAY, DECEMBER 29, 1828. ON Tuesday last there appeared a letter in one of our Contemporaries, addressed to the Editor, and subscribed Mercator." The writer headsor superscribes his letter with the following sentence :-'" SCANTINESS OF TI?E CgRCULATING 31jDIUSI." And his object is to shew, first, that our current money (vii. British coini) is what he ludicrously calls " too good" for the Colony; and secondly, that it is not sufficiently plentiful. THE sentiment) of this writer have been exposed over and over again, from Adam - Smith down to Ricardo anrd Cobbett. They had their advocates however, until " late panic" arrived (in 18 5-.26), and which Mr. Baring said, was owing tp an excess of circulating medium. Since that period, these advocates for base paper mo ney, and base money of all kinds, have .either become converted, or have maintained a prudent silence. ALL base money is founded on cheatery, if we may call genteel and respectable fraud by so coarse a desigtiition. A dolla...
