USEFUL PUBLICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 27 August 1835

USEFUL PUBLICATION   MESSRS TEGG, of George Street, have just re- ceived a large consigniment of a work, entitled The Book of Trades, or Circle of the Useful   Arts, published at Glasgow during the present year, which we think, well deserves a place in the library of every colonial parent, if not of every colonist. It contains a mass of most useful information for young people, especially in this youngi colony in which many of the arts, daily. referred to in the public prints are not yet in practice. The conclusion of the book presents a handsome wood-cut of a ship in full sail for New South Wales, with the following appropriate     announcement of the publisher's : The last act of the publishes is to put his book into circulation, and this employs in some measure every conveyance, from his majesty's mail coach to   the gallant East Indiaman. Our young readers may fancy a consignment of the book they are now read ing, ...

Colonial Politics. IMMIGRATION. II. AGRICULTURAL LABOURERS AND SHEPHERDS. [THE SUBJECT CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 27 August 1835

IMMIGRATION. AGRULTURAL LABOURERS AND     SHEPHERDS.       THE SUBJECT CONTINUED.   Perhaps we may exhaust the patience of cer- tain of our readers by continuing to give "line upon line, and precept upon precept,: on the subject of Immigration. At all events, we shall run the risk of doing so, especially, as, in conse- quence of recent events, to which it is unneces- sary to refer more particularly, we are now more confident than ever that there is no subject with- in the whole range of periodical discussion, in which the moral welfare of this colony is more deeply involved. Taking it for granted, then, that the Colonial Government will adopt such measures as will ensure the importation of a large number of agri- cultural labourers and shepherds during the ensu- ing year, it remains to be considered what steps are necessary to be taken in the colony, that these immigrants may be disposed of so as most ef- ...

Oh intemperance !thou hast sway'd MIe, in many a sinful action, By the treacherous cup betrayed I have sought for satisfaction, But have found it sure distraetion.

Select Poetry. MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 September 1835

MISSIONS. .. BY MRS. SIGOURNEY, AN AMERICAN POET: LIGHT for the dreary vales Of ice-bound Labrador ! Where the frost-king breathes on the slippery sails, And the mariner wakes no more ; Lift higli the lamp that never fails,. To that. dark' and sterile shore. Light for the forest child ! : An outcast though he be, From the haunts where the sun of his childhood smiled,.? And the country of the free; Pour the hope of heaven o'er his desert wild, For what home on earth has he? Light for the hills of Greece! . Light for that trampled clime, WVhere the rage of the spoiler refused to cease Ere it wreck'd the boast of time ; If the Moslem hath dealt the gift of ipeace, Can ae grudge your'e boon sublime ? Light on the Hindoo shed ! On the maddening idol-train, The flame of the suttee is dire and red, And the fakir, faints with, pain, And the dying moan on their cheerless bed, By the Ganges laved in vain. Light for the Persian sky !' The Sophi's wisdom fades; And the pearls of Ormuis are poor...
