To TiE EDITOR OF THE MONITOR.. SIR, IN the Australian. of: the 7th. instant appears a pro duction from the pen of some. "Resident of Newcastle" .wherein the most glaring.falsehoods are palmed off as facts.-- I also am a Resident of Newcastle. The whole of the Epistle in question is a tissue of misrepresentation, and Dr. would do well for the sake of justice ( I leave individual feel ing out of the question) to be a little more guarded in admit ting into his columns,, correspondences of this kind, from sources with which perhaps he is not acquainted. In the first place, it is false that Mr. Muir. " keeps a shop in the teeth" of any Government Order; the Public Order supposed to be alluded to, having referrence to Penal Settlements only. In the next place, it is false to insinuate in the most distant way, that the keeping this shop interferes with his duties as Chief Constable; an industrious wife, having a heavy family to support, attends to it, It is also false that Mr. Muir has a s...

To THE EDITOR OF, THE MONITOR. .Sin, THAT I WAS and am a Clerk in the Offce of the Australian is perfectly true, and the circumstance of my holding a trust-worthy' situation in that.Office upwards of two years, without reproach, is not the less so ; it carries its own comments with it. Is this,' then, to be considered disreputable? You, Mr. Editor, or any other thinking man, will surely reply-no. If it be not, then why will people affect to despise a grade, by means similar to which, they have themselves been enabled.to raise their Meads a few degrees above Zero ? for no better reason imaginable, than one can assign who has toiled a very little way up a long ladder of prefer ment; and though he can catch a glimpse of some place infinitely above his, reach, and feeling others treading close upon his heels, which should convince him he is not itat important character he fancies himself to be, still crows and struts and chuckles, in con scious self-superiority, and affects to look down...

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 April 1827

* TII E MIAL ONITORII . I FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1827. IT appears that one or more of the brave convict ser vants, who captured the armed bushbrangers at the South Creek, themselves being severely wounded by the shot of their adversaries, were already due for a Ticket of-leave--consequently, they feel they have obtained no reward, for the particular service they so gallantly ren dered their master and their country. We have no rea son to suppose. Government knew this circumstance, when the General Orders were published praising these men, and as a reward, conferring on them Tickets-of leave. For such a reward under the circumstances, would have been too nearly allied to mockery; therefore we will charitably hope the. Government were ignorant of the fact, namely, that the captors were already due (to speak in colonial language) for a Ticket-of-leave. If however the Government were indeed ignorant of the circumstance under consideration, they will soon give us proof of .the same, by granti...

To THE EDITOR .OF TIlE MONITOR. " Yon Cassius hat/h a lean and hungry! look- " He thinks too mvch-uc- h men. are dangerorus." (Shakes. Julius C.) SIa, ALTHOUGH "an Englishman's" objections to the sentence passed by the Windsor Bench of Magistrates upon Thomas Cooper, are most just, they have the misfortune not to be good law, in con sequence of the discretionary power of summary jurisdiction, over Prisoners of the Crown in all cases that are not capital, with which the New South Wales Act invests the Justices of the Peace. With. out discussing here the policy of committing such unlimited powers to the DISCRETIONARY exercise of men, who, (to say the leastofit) furnish us with daily arguments against their infallibility, I shall only observe, that it could-never have been the intention of Parlia ment, that the Act should affect men similarly circumstanced with Thomas Cooper, who will to all intents and purposes, be a free subject, as regards his European sentence, ere the opening of t...

STHE RACES. "The dawn was overcast, the morning lowered, "And heavily in clouds brought on the day"' The Road out of Sydney was' at an early hour the ° scene of bustle and activity. The supply of horse-flesh r for the public amusement has been considerably increa sed since the last 1Meeting, and large as the number of SRozinante's were, and multifarious as were the vehicles rendered' available as the means of. transmission of Sgroupes'of holiday-folks to ' the "tented field," yet for some days previously horses and chaises were not to be obtained -for love or money.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 27 April 1827

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. TIE Gazette broadly insinuates that a certain"Con temporary has invested his money in a foreign com modity in Co. with a Merchant of Sydney. If this be true, it furnishes a key to the famous paragraph, which, in lieu of repeating the extravagant eulogy of ." the best man in or out of Christendom," chaunted quite another tune; such as, " there may be more demands " against Capt. Piper. It may be discovered that the " accounts tendered are improperly made up; and" (O ! shameful insinuation !-as unnecessary as illiberal to a fallen gentleman-the best man in or out of Christendom !) " and, that the schedule is a fraudulent " concealment."

Hi justice to Mr. Tyerman it ought to be known, that the expenses of both those Gentlemen are defrayed by the Society; the only difference between them being; this, that as Mr. Tyerman had a family and gave up his congregation at the Isle of Wight for the purpose, df going abroad on the Society's account, that Gentleman was allowed a salary of 30...
