KING GEORGE'S SOUND       This is another of our settlements on the South West coast of New Holland, consisting of 3,0 convict prison ers and 20 soldiers, under the command also of Lieut. Sleeman. • The soil is barren and sandy, though land may be found fit for agriculture, forty miles from the shore. The people of the settlemeut have contrived to pmake a garden on Green iv/.nd, A few miles off the harbouir, where they r'aise vegetables. The Blacks at this set tlement are' friendly, quite the reverse of the ferocious tribes' at' Melville island and Raffle's Bay. "And what is still more pleasing, the Prisoners, tho' geherally starvipg, are also very pacific, which maybe accounted for perhaps at the fountain head ,of truth; upon the principles, that the " demoralising Sydney Monitor," was not read on those sandy coasts.
