TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney, August 4, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 6 August 1835
TO THE, EDITOR O-' THE COL'ONIST. Sydney, August 4. 1835... SIrt,-I beg you, will insert'the two following: letters in your next number. They. contain the, announcement of another splendid donation from .His Majesty's Government to the Australian College. That Instituition, I am happy to in form you, is, under the ::able management of the Rev. Messrs. Wylde anid Mackenzie, fast reco vering the confidence of the public, and of course disappointing the, anxious forebodings of certain of its quondam friends, and the ill-concealed wishes of certain of its enemies. As the cloud, with which its prospect was for some time so com pletely overcast, is now hipidly dissipating, I trust, and feel confident, that ways and means will speedily be found of finishing the buildings already erected,' and of providing suitable accom modation for. the valuable and, voluminous col ection of;Nationzal Records which His'Majesty's Government have thus :entrugted to- the. CountcilF of the Australian College,...

CouNciL: met ipursuant to adjournment, His Excellency: the Governor took. the ;Chair,; and. laid uipon the table the following Minute: The Deputy Commissary General having again represented the deficiency of British: silver in the Miilitary Chest, in consequence of the non-arrival of :an e'Kpected supply from :England,: and the ,little demand for Treasury. Bills, I think it advisable to propose to the Council the. appropriation of a further, ' sum, on loan, for the present supply of the. Chest. The re-payment of this loan may be secured. as * before, by taking Treasury Bills for the amount,.to be retained until redeemed by Specie remitted by His Majesty's Government, or to be otherwise disposed of, as required, for Colonial purposes. This ar rangement is not likely to prove inconvenient, there being. ,at present a 'large sum in th'e Colonial Treasury proposed to'expended in Publ...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 6 August 1835
TO CORRESPONDENTS. .A. Christian, X, and C. will be inserted. ' Dissenter mentions two cases of ecclesiastical grievance in his district ; The first-that of the Colonial Episcopal .Chaplain of the district insisting upon a person acci-. dentally, but involuntarily, present, to participate in the ordinance of the Eucharist-we have nothing to do with; it is not a case fobr the public at all. It was natural for the toorthy Chaplain to suppose that the good wo t an who had so devoutly undergone the ceremony of Churching, was not unwilling to conform in another ob servance, in which, we are sorry to say, there is often as little meaning as there is generally in the other. The other grievance is, that the Chaplain of the district re fused to enrol, in his Parish Register, the name of a child who had been baptized by a Dissenting Minister, notwithstanding the Act of Council of 1825. The act alluded to is the famous Four Dollar or Rogues and Vaga bonds Act. We are surprised that any Dissent...

MAP OF THE COLONY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 6 August 1835
MAP OF THE COLONY 'TO THE "EDITOR .OF THE COLONIST.""}". SiYt,--I observed your notice of Major Mitchell':--: Map, in which you request some literary friend' to furnish you with an article on the subject. I.. do not'pretend tq class myself among your liter ary friends, yet, having some knowledge of the subject, I ventuie to offer a few remarks. There is an opinion abroad, that the Map had' better have been engraved in England; although this would have given it some meretricious im-. portance, it would have wanted that extraordinary accuracy which is now .its great characteristic ; for it almost bears as much the character o,: an 'original, as if had been executed in lithograghy,'. from the Major's own drawings. The usual pro cess of engraving is, to put the original engraving" into the hands of the engraver, who pencils it. over, and then rubs it down bn 'the. copper, and ' in the course of engraving is so reckless of accu racy, and takes.such unwarrantable liberties with the origin...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney, August 1, 1836. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 6 August 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST Sydney, August 1, 1836. SIR, -Passing on Friday last, near the place where an ironed gang was at work, my attention was attracted by the sound of cursing and blas phemy pronounced in a very loud tone of voice, and apparently proceeding from some of thegang. I was surprised that their overseer should permit such behaviour, but my astonishment was ex &nbsp; treme on discovering that the oaths proceeded, &nbsp; not from the chain gang as I had imagined, but from a certain portly gentleman in the magistracy of the colony, from whom one might have ex pected a demeanor of different example. As I am not very well versed in colonial law, perhaps Mr. Editor, you will have the kindness to inform me, through the medium of your valuable jour nal, whether there is any colonial law, prohibiting the use of such disgraceful language and de creeing some specific punishment on its trans &nbsp; gressors? &nbsp; &nbsp; I am, Sir, you...

TO MR. HASWELL. Colonist Office, July 31, 1835. MR. MuNRo begs to inform Mr. Haswell, that he does not think it necessary to furnish him with the information solicited, as it appears to him that the writer of the article he refers to, had no in tention to reflect upon him, Mr. H., and was merely expressing his commiseration for his truly destitute case, in being so unseasonably deprived of his right hand man, Mr. William Watt. Indeed, Mr. Munro thinks Mr. H. should rather feel obliged to the writer of the article in question, for showing him how easily the matter might be managed, notwithstanding Mr. Watt's having got into trouble. The following is the passage in our last, re ferred to by Mr. Haswell: That notorious villain, William Watt, who has so long been a pest to Society in this colony, underwent an examination at the Police Office, on Monday last, at the instance of Messrs. Stephens and Stokes, for inciting and bribing a compositor in their emplovment to steal from The Herald...

LONGEVITY &nbsp; [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] DIED at the Governor's Dairy, Parramatta, on the 25th inst. Elizabeth Eccles, aged 105 years.

WITHOUT rany elabdrate deduction, it will be evidenit from the -,truth of the 4foregoing po sitions, that .:inteniperance produces idleness, poverty, famine,, .surliness, that its influence in the social system must be- injurious, and. injuri ous to a-.wide extent.
