PROVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 September 1835
PROVIDENCE. [From the Italian of Filicaja.] BY THE EDINBURGH REVIEWER. EvEN as a mother o'er her children bending Yearns with maternal love; her fond embraces ':.; And gentle kiss to each in turn extending, One at her feet, one on her knee she 'places, And from their eyes, and voice, and speaking.faces, . ii Their varying wants and wishes comprehending, To one a look, to one a word addresses, Even with her frowns a mother's fondness blending , So o'er is'watches Providenceon high, ;,.i And hope to some, and help to others lends, And yields alike to all, an open ear, ,And when she seems her favours to deny' She for our prayers alone the boon suspends.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Middle Harbour, September 1, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 September 1835
TO THE EDITOR OFTHE COLONIST. Middle Harbour, September 1, 1835. r a,--Permit me to enquire whether it might not be well; to suggest the expediency of a gene ral fast; and to give some 'hints for the proper observance of it. The hand of God is upon us, and we acknowledge it not. The sins of the colony, of the.rich as well' as the poor,, cry aloud to heaven:. But he who spared Nineveh when humbled in. dust' and ashes, with her princes ;and her rulers, will spare and bless wicked Syd ney, also,. if .we. turn to Him with humiliation, with fasting, and 'with prayer. He' loved . his people Israel of.old. He loves the sons of Bri tain too; but as. in just chastisement for their pt:lences he made their herpivpgi as 'b as, arid . .'' . their earth as iron; so mayswe expect the same manifestation of his high displeasure at our ini quities, if we will not humble ourselves under his mighty hand. ' iYours respeptfully, A SUBSCRIBER. We should have been most happy. to make such a suggestion as o...
SLEEP AND THE INTERMEDIATE STATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 September 1835
SLEEP AND THE INTERMEDIATESTATE . :=' [From the Italian of Sannazzaro.]. BY GLASSFORD. MY soul such pleasure oft in sleep receives, That death begins to seem a pleasant thing, Nor to be arm'd, perchance, with such a sting,-,i Or taste so bitter.as the world eonceives. For, if the mind alone sees, hears, believes, i While every limb is dead and languishing, And greatest pleasure to herself can bring, r I` When least thebody feels and least perceives,-' Well may the hope be cherish'd, that when quite Loosed from the burden of her earthly chain; ', She hears, and sees, and knows her true delight, Rejoice, thbu troubled spirit; though in pain If thou canst take, even here, so sweet a flight, .What wilt thou in thy native seats again? :
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 10 September 1835
TO CORRESPONDENTS. A Caledonian writes so affectionately about our newly arrived friends on board the Canton, that we are almost tempted to suppose him what the French call un amant d'onze mile femmes, a complete lady's man. With a 'few verbal ommissions, his comunication will be in serted. There are some lines left out, however, in the poeti cal extract. We should like either to have a correct copy Of it sent us, or to be favoured with the loan of the work from which it is extracted. We differ entirely from A Subscriber in the views he enter tains relative to the Flour Company, and we cannot, therefore, insert any letter whose object is to cry up that Company. Let us have more wheat growers and we shall have more wheat grinders, more bakers, and cheaper bread. Bread will find its level in the market like every, thing else. We have no faith in Companies established ostensibly to keep it down. A Company should beformed only to do what a private individual cannot do, or can not do so ...
