SONNET TO MADAME PASTA, ON HER DEPARTURE FOR ITALY. WEND o'er the waters to thine own bright land, SAPIIO of song ! Again, upon the shore Where footprints are immortal, for of yore Trod by Italia's all immortal band, To 'drink the inspiration of the scene 1 But come, Enchantress ! when the fields are green, SFull fraught with high-souled thought and thrilling sounds, To shew us, in this island's distant bounds, WVhat glorious creatures women oft have been ! Come, JUDITH, terrible as' Cqlchis' Queen, Or steal the tears from even man's strain'd eye, :As love-lorn'NANA. Years may not efface The print of rapture, stamp'd with matchless grace Upon my breast by thee ;-some pleasures never die ! T

S TIE IMONITOR. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1827. We wished to see and hear, how General Darling's new code of Ticket-of-leave regulations worked, before we proceeded to analyse and discuss them. We per ceive, on lookibg over the Archives of this antient Realm, that on this subject, Governor Macquarie published a code of regulations, on the 9th of January 1813. Sir Thomas Brisbane on the 15th of November, 1822. And the present Governor, on the first day of the present year. We shall find in reference to these several codes, that as the Colony grows older the Government grows less merciful and benignant. Every change is in prejudice of the sweet attribute mercy. If the departure from cle jyency be as great the next fourteen years, as it has been the last, tickets of leave and emancipations in 1841, will be entirely exploded, and unknown. Example only, and npo the rerfmation of the unhappy convict, will be deemed tprthy ?ufL sideration, 14 years hence, WE sh?Jtreat of the.laws of tickets o...

SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 February 1827
SYDNEY MARKIETS. Tut Corn Market was but scantily supplied, prime sorts were rare. A good deal of inferior wheat remains on hand, being scarcely marketable, for the former the demand was brisk. Maize realizes a good price, no farther rise is anticipated.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 24 February 1827
DOMIESTIC INTELLIGENCE. A novel mode of obtaining ingress into the peaceable habitation of an humble resident in Philip Street, a few nights since was adopted by means of removing the shingles from the roof, thereby making an opening suffi ciently capacious to admit the body of the intruder. The honest couple, viz. the. occupier of the house and his wife, beheld him descending from the loft through a trap door "Unlooked for, unwished for, at that time of night, &nbsp; Their room t'invade softly creeping." &nbsp; A too hasty attempt to seize the unwelcome visitor, was rendered abortive, by the want of discretion and neces- sary caution, for his newly formed upper door-way ser- ved him as a place of egress, and his heels for once to a certainty sufficed to save his head. A CORRESPONDENT says-" The gossip of the day an- nounces that the coming season is likely to be unusually prolific in offerings at the shrine of Hymen.

WTHE MIOIITOR. ,. .? RIDAY, MARCH 2, .1827. . "TWENTy-TNri~E of the Pirates have been sentenoed to death, and it is the general opinion that a portion of them atleast, will suffer. We are sorry for it. Thering leaders, who on such occasions are considered the most guilty, happen in the' present instance to be the very men we would wish to see spared, on account of the extreme moderation and good conduct -evinced to the conquered crew and guard. `The advocates -for mercy, among whom we have the honour to take' our place, say, that although in law the capturers are pirates, still it was a .piracy infinitely'less immoral-than where the commander or crew of a merchant vessel, -without other moti;ves than sheer avarice and treachery, run away with it. The'cases are not, at all to be compared in moral turpi- - tude. And while such piracy as the last-mentioned is commonly visited with- death in England, it does not follow that.the present kind,of piracy .should be visited " with death here...
