-? (To the Editoa of the Illawarra Mercury.) Sir — Will you have the kindness to allow me a little space in the free columns of your valuable journal, to give a description of a journey I lately made, from Twofold Bay to Wollongong, over land. The first place, after leaving Twofold Bay, of any note, I met with was Pambnla, a very pretty and flourishing township. Here there are four or five public houses, us many more stores, a lock-up, a crown-land commissioner's oHice, a church of England place of worship, one or two schools, about three dozen very well erected weatherboarded cottages, together with as many more rough slab huts. I ' After my leaving Panibula, I proceeded to Biga ; distant from the latter place fifteen miles. In travelling this road, the traveller cannot but behold some of the finest scenery in New South Wales r t,h« land is of the first onalitv. and is inferior to none that I beheld on ray journey.

ON THE PRESENT STATE AND FUTURE PROSPECTS OF OUR SOCIAL CONDITION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 30 June 1856

ON THE PRESENT STATE AND FUTURE PROSPECTS OF OUR SOCIAL CONDITION. (To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) I Mr. Editor— Not many days ago I sent you a few 'paragraphs 9n the sore evils flowing from ignorance and intemperate habits, Our country is afflicted with a race of people that despise the schoolmaster and love the publican. We need far more schodls than we have, and we -should be rid of a heavy burden, in the sweeping away of three fourths of our public houses. The fault of this porverse order of things must lie at some one's door — and a grievous fault it is — a fault that is telling with mighty effect in putting out peoples' eyes, and then making sport of them in their misery. If the Philistines do not relent, Samp3on may seize the pillars of the social fabric, in some evil hour, and hurl it with violence to destruction. They say, and they say well, that public house gains cannot be attended with a blessing. The publican's prosperity is like the ox fattening for the slaug...
