NEWS FROM CALCUTTA. DEFEAT OF THE BURMESE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 25 November 1824

NEWS FROM CALCUTTA. DEFEAT OF THE BURMESE. Fort William, June 2, 1824.— Dispatches and pri- vate letters, of which the following are extracts, were received from Brigadier-General Sir A. Campbell, K. C. B. commanding the British forces at Rangoon, containing an account of the capture of the principal sea-port of the Birman empire. The expedition sailed from Port Cornwallis on the 5th of May, and expe- rienced very rough weather on the passage. The fleet having reached the Rangoon River, anchored within the bar on the 10th of May. On the fol- lowing morning, the fleet, led by His Majesty's ship Liffey, under Commodore Grant, sailed up the river, followed by the transports, and in the course of a few hours arrived off the town, receiving on the passage some insignificant discharges of artillery from one or two of the chokies on the banks of the river. Motives of humanity induced the Commodore to desist from commencing the contest, in the hope that the authori- ties in town would purpo...

PARTICULARS OF THE ESCAPE, SUBSEQUENT APPREHENSION, AND ATTEMPT AT SUICIDE, OF WM. EDWARDS, alias LOOKAYE. Orders having been received for the removal of W. Edwards, under   sentence of transportation to New South Wales, from Cape Town, to be placed on board the convict ship Minerva, in Simon's Bay, he was accordingly removed from the town prison, at half-past seven a. m. on the 17th September, in a covered cart, drawn by   four horses, and received the indulgence of being permitted to take his wife and sister-in law along with him. He was attended by the third under-sheriff Stilwel, and a constable, both on horse- back. He feigned extreme illness previous to his getting into   the carriage, at the "Three Cups," at Rondebosch, he pretended to be so ill as to necessitate his quitting the cart. On approach- ing captain Carnall's Place, near Wyberg, he was met by capt   Carnall, on horseback, and when opposite to the place, which lies...

TO ——— The hour is come — the cherish'd hour, When from the busy world set free,   I seek at length my lonely bower, And muse in silent thought on thee. And, oh! how sweet to know that still, Tho' sever'd from thee widely far, Our minds the self-same thought can fill—   Our eyes yet seek the self-same star.   Compulsion from its destin'd course The magnet may awhile detain, But when no more withheld by force, It trembles to its north again. Thus, though the idle world may hold My fetter'd thoughts awhile from thee, To thee they spring, when uncontroll'd, In all the warmth of liberty. The faithful dove, where'er by day,     Through fields of air her pinions rove,   Still seeks, when day-light dies away,     The shelter of her native grove.       So at this calm, this silent hour, Whate'er the daily scenes I see,     M...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 25 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian. Sir,       Having read a notice in your last number, emanating from the officers of the garrison, forbidding any per- sons bathing at the military bathing-house, not only myself, but I presume the inhabitants generally, would be much obliged by being informed, through the medium of your Independent Paper, if the officers have any legal right to usurp to themselves exclusively,   a public place, for their own private use. A place which has ever been resorted to by the inhabitants, for that purpose. It does not appear to me, Mr. Edi- tor, that they have the power to place a sentry to prevent the exercise of what I conceive to be a public right; and threaten with rigorous prosecution, those   who have as just a right to bathe there, as they have. If the officers wish for private a bathing place, let them rent a piece of ground, or obtain a grant for a piece for that purpose, from his Excel...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 25 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian. Sir, Your non insertion of my letter, in consequence of   the orthographical arrangement, must be considered as lame excuse. The brightest ornament in a community is a Free Press, and its Editor, who will give fair pub- licity to argumentation. If you, Sir, as an editor, re- ceive a letter from a correspondent, wherein a few words in spelling do not exactly suit your common usage, prudence at least might induce you to correct them.   We are not all of a college. In number there are six : namely, Eaton, Oxford, Cambridge, the county gaol, the stocks, and the gallows. I am not a member of any. I therefore did not receive a collegian education. In your animadversion upon my letter last week, you do me an act of injustice ; namely, I therein said that I had been in company with ten or twelve gentlemen, eight of whom offered to be their one hundred pounds as shares, but you, Mr. Editor, endeavoured to make it appear that only eig...

To the Editor of the Australian. Sir,                         If worth a place in your valuable Paper, I beg leave to recomend to some abler writer then myself, a pro- posal for the erection of a theatre. Tis not long since, that I were in company with ten gentlemen; a ques- tion arose conserning a place of amusement; eight   gentlemen, then in company, offerd to be one hundred pound each, if a place of that sort was establisht in shears. I have not the least dought that, if you, Mr. Editor, was to propose any thing of the kind, that it would meat with a very liberal incouragement. We want a little intertainment — our curency lasses would be very much joyed at such an establishment. A very snug company might be procured even in this part of the world, by a little existance of a few ame- tures, who arc only waiting fo...

To the Editor of the Australian. Permit me, Sir, to add, by way of postscript to my letter to you of the 4th inst. a few remarks upon a communication which ap-   peared in your last Paper, signed "Philanthos," the author of   which, I have good reason to believe, is Mr. Cunningham, who is commonly, designated the king's botanist. This gentleman visited me with the avowed intention of ascertaining the descrip- tion of the tree to which I applied the name teak or New Hol- land oak; and was well aware, long before his visit (for I made   no secret of the matter) that the tree in question has been long known by the name of bastard box, and that it grew in abundance   over the whole Colony. On his arrival, he entreated me not to call it teak or oak, as it would confound botanical arrangements; and, on my refusal to comply, he appeared to be much chagrined. I at once told him that I knew very little of botany, as my studies had been prin...

Dr. Wardell and Mr. Wentworth having already disclaimed in open Court that any partnership exists between them as Lawyers, have learnt with regret that a general belief still pervades the public mind that they are thus connected. This opinion, they find, has been, and still continues to be, propagated with an industry proportioned to the interest which some persons feel in its general circulation. Dr. Wardell and Mr. Wentworth therefore deem it a duty, which they owe to themselves thus publicly to declare, that this report has not the slightest foundation in truth. Their offices are perfectly distinct, though under the same roof : and the public, if they reflect at all, must be convinced, that it can make no possible difference to them, whether Dr. Wardell and Mr. Wentworth reside   in the same house, or at opposite ends of the town. If they could stoop in order to promote the views of any man to any sinister practices, Sydney is not so exten- sive but that they might e...

To the Editors of the Australian. GENTLEMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 December 1824

To the Editors of the Australian.   Gentlemen, Your Newspaper although of very recent establishment has   already satisfied me, as it has, I believe, the candid and patriotic part of our public, of your real desire to promote the peace and prosperity of the colonist at large. Under this impression, I beg the favor of your inserting the following observations :—   It is admitted, I believe by all, that the grants of land made   by the respective governors of this colony, convey a right of road from the main highways of the territory. It is equally admitted, I believe, however, that this right is general, and is not specified in the grants; and that the late active surveyor (Mr. Meehan) con- sidered it most expedient to leave the right general under the con- viction that the grantees for their convenience would readily agree upon the site or locality of such roads, as should enable every man to get access to his estate, with the grea...

To the Editors of the Australian.     SIR,           I again gladly avail myself of the opportunity which your interesting Journal affords, for giving   publicity to a few observations upon the very extraor- dinary policy adopted in selecting jurymen for the Quarter Sessions lately held here, and in other parts of the Colony;— a policy, from all that I can learn, quite unprecedented, as well as repugnant to the spirit and practice of British law and justice; calculated   only to fan into a flame all those latent sparks of dis- cord and dissention, between man and man, so abhor- rent to the peace and welfare of civil society; and, which the common interests of humanity require, should be prudently hushed into oblivion (a desideratum with our late beloved Governor, which engrossed no incon- siderable share of his best energies).

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, "Now truth perform thy office."           I perceived in your columns of last week, a letter attempting to impugn the accuracy and judgment of scientific researchers of the botanic order. On the subject of Claremont teak, I myself, have seen the   tree most egregiously named teak, by the proprietor of Claremont; being, in fact, the common bastard box. Mr. P. may flatter himself with any foolish idea,   or call the rude trees of his forests by the technical term of all the most esteemed and precious timbers, so long as the vanity of the misnomer is mainly satisfied. But to attempt to deceive the public, in so direct an absurdity, as affirming an affinity, between the teak tree and the bastard box, or his descriptive alliance of the latter wood, and the box tree, admits of no palliative, and is a sorry attempt to effect the inten- tion. Let the laird of Clar...
