No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 10 December 1838

We are very sorry to heir, that the At. torney General has applied for leave of absence, and it is rumoured, with the in tention of not returning to the Colony. In our opinion, Mr Plunkett has been the most efficient Attorney-General this'Colony has vet seen. POTATtnu MfaR'CHNTS-.-A case -came on at the Court of Requests during its past settings, which may not be considered uninterestingor unprofitable to place before the public. The plaintiff went to the Market-and purchased a bag of potatoes weighing 100 lbs. The sample at top looked admirably, but on upsetting the bag, (not wishing to purchase a pig in a poke,) the prta'oes at the bottom were of quite an inferior quality-in fact useless. The plaintiff refused to take them away, and also refused to receive the money he had paid for them, and brought his action for d.inaae The defendant urged, that the plaintiff was welcome to the potatoes; there they were for him at his stall. The Com missioner said no-had the potatoes been remove...

English News. (The foltosi'*g abridgment of late Englisa Nettm re copy from Marreg's Review.-Eo, Svn. Mo N.) -a Children, from England the 20th J ,, bhas arrived at Launceston. The latest papers are, we believe, of the 17th, at least we have seen none beyond that date. There is little intelligence of im portance. The Queen. fatigued with the continued course of splendid show which she had undergone, seemed to wish to relax in the comparative privacy of the Palace life, dining with unly about a score of the chief personages of royal intimacy. Our military readers will peruse the fol lowing with interest. It is now clear that so arbitrary is the rule of. the Tory Lord Hill over the army, that the Queen herself has not the power of promoting any officer her Ministers may consider deserv ing that favour. It will be seen, that the President of the Board of Control, Sir John Hubhouse, and the Master General of the Ordnance, Sir Henry Vivian, had both pressed the promotion of a particular ...

From the Grahzams's Town Journalbf 27th Sept. %e give this week the Government's report of the depredations committegd u the colonists by the Calfers, during August last. This was a month during which.buc comparatively few cases of plunder reached. our hands; and'yct we find die Gouvern ment publilhing an. account of losses fou that period of no less than one hnidred and th.rty-one head of cattle, and twcentf,". eight horses. It is said also, that the. aIi' horses and 198 cattle, wrhich the Cafferis hid been detected, in stealipg previously, and for which they were bound by, thb treaties to -make compensation, were its train for settlement. We should have bei glad of a little more information on this subject ;-for instance, it would have beegr satisfactory to bave known rewhy the, treea. ties were not fulfilled on the part of the Caffers,-and why we refrained fram..corn pelting their fulfilment ? Some, of the cattle-in question were stolen more than a year ago, and notwithstanding t...

EASTERN PROVINCT. [Frormnthe GRAIIEAI Town JOURNAL, olSept. 20.J A very large ýportion of the time of the Circuit Court, now sitting here, has been taken up by the trial of the Coffers, de. tected in the colony ii.the' act of cattle stealing. Never was the-colony in such a state of deplorable anarchy, by the ag 'ressions of these people upon the indus crious and ppaceable white inhabitants, is it has been of late ;-and to what, we ask, may all this be attributable? We iuswer Ito that door which has beenthrown wide open to the ingress into the colony of Coffer marauders by the existing treaties, and to that direct ehcouragement which is alffrded to them to plunder the colonists. Yesterday morning, several of them were severely Hogged. pursuant to theiraentence, in front of the Court House. And we also learn, that within the last few days, two have been shot on the border, detcctel in the act of plunder. Nothing can be more deplirable than such occurrences as then , nor'can there be a...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 10 December 1838

Cape of Good Hope. If we may judge from the way the Cape of Good Hope is now governed, we ahould say, that good Government, in a British Colony, depends on the smallness of the Givernor's salary; for with an enormous salary payable to the Governor, the Cape of IGood Hope seems to be by many degrees the worst governed colony under the Crown. The farmers have lately been emigrating to sew territories in thousands to get rid of a bad government; when pool fellows, they w. re attacked on their way to Gohen, by the neighbouringCaflirs, Zoolas, and other Abo-rigines, and, through trenchery. were defeated, losing all their cattle.*Their suff ring6 the next winter were extreme. In the ea'terngprovinccs, they seem over. run. by the savages, who under Lord Glenelg s treaty, arepouring into the colony as *' free -settlero." Free enough they make themselves,, by, their Gypsey habits of rapine and thievery. But let the Zuid African editor. spead for the unhappy Colonists. ,

The Big River, NORTH OF PORT MACQUARIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 10 December 1838

The Big River, NORTH OF PORT MACQUARIE. We have been favoured by Captain, Butcher late of the Abercrombie, with some account of the capabilities of the Big River, from which he has recently returned, having explored it to a distance of 120 miles from the sea. Captain Butcher describes the river as navigable for vessels drawing nine feet water as far as Susan's Island, (which is situate about 80 miles from the entrance. The banks of the river are thickly covered with timber, fit for building vessels of any; description. it a place called Pine Reach, about five miles above Susan's Island, Captain B saw a great abundance of pine trees, greatly resembling the English pine, and well adapted for making spars or for similar purposes. Some of the trees Capt. B saw, could not have been less than seven feet in diameter. The land on the banks of the river is generally of the finest des-. cription, and behind, are extensive flats of fertile land, luxuriantly covered, with grass, and fit for the...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. Some one under a feigned signature, has sent us a letter respecting the passengers of the Fairlie. Just come from England, the writer ought to know, that it would be very injudicious in us to, publish the remarks of a Correspondent, who seems unwilling to trust us privately with his name, calling, or residence. But even if the writer had sent his name, his accusations are too vague, and remarks too common-place to insert.   They might do as a preface to a list of real facts and a detail of real circumstances-but a preface alone will not do.
