RAIL-ROAD ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 September 1835

RAIL-ROAD ACROSS THE ISTHMUS OF PANAMA'. THE .project for this very desirable undertaking has l~een lately revived by the government of New Gre nada, to which state the Isthlnus of Panama belongs. It is understood that an agent has recently arrived in England for the purpose of obtaining contractors for the work, according to the terms of the decree'of that republic of the 27th May, 1834. The passage in question is to consist either of a common road for carriages or waggons, or an iron rail-road, as con tractors may be found. The principal inducement held out to speculators consists inma grant of 20,000 fanegades, or about 24,000 acres, of waste land upon the isthmus; vith a free possession of the products from the road for a term of years which shall not: be less thanten, nor exceed fifty years. The state toll *dues,. a list of which is appended to the decree, are, however, to commence wilth the opening of the road. Upon the waste land to be granted, colonies of fo reigners" may .b...

NATIONAL RECORDS LIBRARY. WEN are happy to inform our readers, that the collection of Parliamentary Journals and Public Records, &c. which has been valued by a con-... petent judge at 10001.,-has been deposited in a suitable apartment- iii' the Australian College Buildings, under the care of the Rev..Messrs. Wylde and M'Keri'zie, A.

MR. HALL'S PATRIOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 September 1835

MR. HALL'S PATRIOTISM. MR. EDWARD. SMITI HALL seems to think there must be some.mistake in the name, of TRIMMER, by, which we proposed ,some time since to desig nate him in future. : He has never studied his 6wn interest in any one particular, since he came to thiscolony-no, not he! And there is no office in his present Excellency's giving, that would serve,, to buy him off from the service of, the. public! Perhaps, however, a plurality of offices might have this. effect+-suclh a combination, for instance, as that of Clerk to. the Bench, Coroner, .and Postmaster, for the Lake Bathurst district. In deed; if we felt:inclined-to set the least value on Mr. HA i'Sliterary services 'to the Public, we should:be sorry to see His Excellency. offerig him the situation of Police Magistrate for that district, on condition of his no longer writing:for?.: Monitor.

THE LATE JAMES LAIDLEY, ESQ., D.C.G. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 3 September 1835

THE LATE JAMES LAIDLEY ESQ., D.C.G. Died, at is residence, Woolloomoolloo, on Sunday last, much and universally regretted, James Laidley, Esq., Deputy Commissary-Ge-   neral of New South Wales. Mr. Laidley, we should imagine, was about fifty years of age, and had presided over the Commissariat De- partment in this colony for seven or eight years. His long residence in a warm climate—having served both in the West Indies and in the Isle of France—had probably sown the seeds of an hepatic affection deep in his constitution; which his fondness for society, and perhaps for those minor indulgences to which it usually leads, had insensibly matured into a virulent and fatal dis- ease. As an officer of Government, occupying a situation of considerable influence in the colony, Mr. Laidley was assiduous and conscientious in the discharge of his public duties; kind and obliging to his subordinates in office; affable and courteous to all. Though of Scottish parentage, at least by t...

THE LATE MR. THOMAS SHEPHERD. Died also, on Sunday last, Mr. Thomas Shep- herd, of the Darling Nursery, leaving a wife and four children to deplore his loss. Mr. Shep-   herd was born of reputable parents in Fife in Scotland, and was bred to the humble profession of a working gardener. Like many bf his coun-   trymen especially of that profession, he emigrated to London, with the hope of bettering his fortune, about the commencement of the present century;     and by dint of persevering industry, conjoined with inflexible integrity and an irreproachable moral character, he succeeded in establishing himself in a highly respectable situation as a nursery gardener at Worthing in Kent, and at Hackney, near London. During the Joint-Stock Company mania of 1825, a company was formed in London under the designation of the New Zealand Company, for the cultivation, exporta- tion, and manufacture of the produce of that is- land; of which, Mr....
