SIR,--I have lately retutied from the interior; and since my arrival:in Sydney, I have: perused   the numbers of ThE COLONIST that had beien published during my absence. The remarks of A Constant Reader, which ap- pear in your journal No. XXVI. of the 25th June, attracted my particular attention, as they are in perfect accordance with my opinion, which has been formed from personal observation.

John Vincent: and I have been credibly informed, there formerly was a parochial school kept in that chapel, but owing to the inat- tention or neglect of parents, &c., there were but few, if' any, children compelled to attend, and consequently the school has been done away with altogether.

In many parts, the highly respect able land proprietors have made considerable improvements on their estates, but upon my visiting Ash Island, the estate of Walker Scott, Esq., I was quite astonished to see the quality of the soil, the very high state of cultivation, in which the land is; the elegant cottage and flower garden, together with upwards of 1000 of the choicest fruit trees; and to my utter surprise, the superintendent (Mr.' Brunker,) to, whom the greatest praise is due, informed me, that this beautiful estate, and with so much improve- mepts is only t...
