THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826

THE RACES. THE first day of our Races commenced on 'Wednes- day last-and notwithstanding the delightful state of the Weather, the Company was not so numerous as at the last Assemblage of this kind. FIRST RACE. THE first Race for THE BRISBANE CUP, was won easy by Mr. NASH's Horse Junius. MR. WM. ROBERTS'S Horse Captain came in second; the rest were distanced. (two mile heats.) SECOND RACE. The second Race was a match between COLONEL DUMARESQUE'S Colt, Abdallah, and Mr. W. C. WENT- WORTH'S Colt Don Giovani; this was a good race, won by the latter. (two mile heats.). THIRD RACE. This intended Race was withdrawn. FOURTH. RACE. THE Fourth Race, for the Turf Club's SUBSCRIPTION PURSE, was won in a canter by COLONEL DUMARESQUE'S Horse, Midas. AMONG the Company present, we noticed His EXCEL LENCY the GOVERNOR and Family; His Honor the Chief Justice and Family; the Colonial Secretary and Family; the Solicitor General and Family; the Naval Officer; the Sheriff; and other distinguished colonis...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826

SIx~c writing' our leading articles we have found leisure to read our Contemporaries of Wednesday. It is rather singular that the tottering old Gentleman The Gazette should have made up his mind to quit the liter rary field the very week we have had occasion to advert t,>his inability-however it is a wise choice, and displays an absence of that greediness which inclines most men to die with their hands full of business. In his projected retirement to a farm, we shall take special care that the venerable ex-editor be supplied with The Monitor perodically, as habit is strong, and to see the papers regularly will doubtless yield him mucli comfort in his declining days. We forgive his garrulity-a hundred advertisements in the third nnmber is enough to astonish even such old experienced Editors as The Gazette. A little spleen therefore is excusable-he feels that our success both, in Advertisements and Subscribers (now approaching fast to four hundred) has influeniced his late determin...

FINE ARTS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826

"s FINE ARTS IN AUSTRALIA. Tnl Lady of IR. Jones, Esq. displayed her regard fo; the Fine Arts on the occasion of her late brilliant route, by decorating the ball-room with transparencies executed e by our old Colonist Mr. Reid, one of Sir Joshua Rey nolds's disciples, and a painter of genius, as his pencil designs executed some time ago for Piper Castle and his Crayon designs on the walls of the drawing-room in Government-house demonstrate. One of the windows t of the ball room exhibited a subject taken from Spencer's Fairy Queen. It represented a captive virgin under the spell of a magician. On the appearance of Britomart r (Chastity) the magician's power ceases and the captive's chains fall off. The figures of the Magician and Brit tomart were superior in our opinion to that of the cap tive. The whole effect however was brilliant.--The second window exhibited a scene in Italy. Baron Rigon I is crossing a rustic bridge, under which foams a e cataract-he appears to compel his unwill...

ADVERTISEMENT. SYDNEY. APRIL 21, 1826. THE HONORABLE ALEXANDER MACLEAY,   COLONIAL SECRETARY, &c. &c. &c. Sir,   Permit me to solicit the Patronage of His Excellency Lieut. General Darling, for the Sydney Catho- tic Chapel, and I assure you, at the same time that were I even perfectly independent of it, I should notwithstanding appreciate it as a distinguished honour and an invaluable advantage. But unfortunately at present I hrave serious reason to apprehend, that unless His Excellency,speedily af- ford it his Patronage, and very efficient assistance on the part of Government, that building to which so much time, trouble, and industry have been devoted, and on which so much money has been expended, instead of being, as it was intend- ed to be, an ornament to the town, and a source of spiritual and temporal blessings to many of its inhabitants, will, at no distant period, be in a state of dilapidation, and any thing but an honor to t...

TURF DINNER. COL. DUMARESQUE, PRESIDENT. CAPTAIN RAINE, VICE PRESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826

TURF DINNER. COL. DUIMARESQUE, CAPTAIN RAISE, PRESIDENT. VICE PRESIDENT. On Wednesday last, a most sumptuous dinner was provided for the Gentlemen of the Turf, by Mr Cummings; and after regaling themselves until a late hour, the party retired. We are informed the company was not so numerous as expected, in consequence of which, the fragments from the table were very considerable. We recommend Mr C. to share them among the unfortu nate prisoners confined in the gaol. John Malony, Chief Constable, Appin, James Jackson, ex-publican, of Campbell Town, Whaley, Constable of Myrtle Creek and Robert Higgins of Bargo, have all severally been fined in the full penalty of 25 pounds sterling, for selling spirituous liquors without a licence. We were rejoiced to get a peep at Dr. Bland the last week. He takes an airing occasionally in a carriage, and we understand steps out and walks a little on such occasions in the bush. We sincerely hope there will be no more relapses. Dr. Bland's health is p...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 16 June 1826

TO CORRESPONDENTS.   We should be extremely happy to oblige so fair a cor- respondent as A.-but the two sets of verses she has transmitted, though deserving applause from the circle of her private friends, do not appear to us so well cal- culated to endure the severity of public criticism. Let not our denial on the present occasion, however, too much discourage our correspondent. Her next attempts at selection or original composition, may be such as to claim public attention. WE should feel proud to insert any communication from the transmitter of the ' Poem by the present Bishop of Calcutta;" but in our choice of poetry, we are compelled to consider poetic genius essential-this we think the noble prelate's verses deficient of, though the sentiments do credit both to his head and heart: " The Affectionate Heart," though a pleasing poetical effusion, does not breathe that spirit of poetry which entitles it to pre-eminence. We are, therefore, under the necessity of denyin...

Original and Select Poetry, LINES IN REPLY TO THOSE OF A LADY, ON HER ÆOLIAN HARP. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

LINES IN REPLY TO THOSE OF A LADY, ON HER JEOLIAN HARP. On Lady ! thou who sings't so well The charms, thy harp affords thine ear; Say would'st thou lonely on them dwell, Nor wish one kind companion near, Thy sympathetic bliss to share? One, who, when softly breathes its chords Beneath the elms' far spreading shade, At noon or eve, with sweetest words, Might call thee his enraptured maid, Within that lone sequestered glade? No sound that zephyr o'er it flings, Softly or hoarse-like anthems' peal, Or steel-clad warriors' revellings, Or seraph's rapture could reveal, Such plaints of passion he might feel! " Souls have a sympathy with sounds," Then marvel not I too would leave, The maddening throng, where vice surrounds, To list the notes thy harp would heaves At " morn, or noon, or silent eve."

THE FOLLOWING STANZAS WERE ADDRESSED BY LORD BYRON TO HIS LADY, A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THEIR SEPARATION. TO JESSY. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 23 June 1826

THE FOLLOWING STANZAS WERE ADDRESSED RY LORD BYRON TO HIS LADY, A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THEIR SEPARATION. TO JESSY. There is a mystic thread of life So dearly wreathed with mine alone, That Destiny's relentless knife At once must sever both or none. There is a form, on which these eyes Have often gazed with fond delight; By day, that form their joy supplies, And dreams restore it through the night. There is a voice whose tones inspire Such thrills of rapture in my breast; I would not hear a seraph choir, Unless that voice couldomi 'the rest'! There is a face whose blushes tell Affection's tale upon the cheek; But pallid at one fond farewell, Proclaims more love than words can speak. There is a lip which mine hath prest, And none had ever prest before; It vow'd to make me sweetly blest, And mine-mine only, prest it more. There is a bosom-all my own Hath pillow'd oft this aching head; " A mouth-which smiles on me alone; An eye-whose tears with mine are shed. There are two hearts, whose mo...
