SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 May 1827

SYDNEY MARKETS. LAST Thursday's Market was much brisker than for some time past. There was a very fair supply of grain of all descriptions. Wheat was on the decline; Maize and Barley still hold their value. Buyers were numerous, and made lively biddings. There were no horned cattle or sheep. Pigs averaged £1. 10s. per head, and were of superior description. Fruit in season fetches a good price. Dairy produce is rather scarce-the Dealers were full in attendance. ,o" BUSHELS OF WHEAT SOLD. 216 at 4s. 6d.--160 at 5.s.-309 at 5s. 9d.-230 at 6s.-Pri-' vate Sales out of Market 485 at an average of 5s.

TO THE EDITOR OF 'THE- MONITOR, SIR, Banks of the Hawkesbury, 4April 24, 1827. - IN consequeence of the want of a direct communi cation between this part of the South Creek. and Windsor, the perusal of your. Weekly Paper costs me a long walk, through a wild bush, which I perform every Saturday Evening,. and thoughl this' ambulatory trip may, for aught I know, be very salubrious, I must confess that nothing short of the pleasure which I derive from coming over in the course of the week, the events of the last, and anticipating the probable success of some judicious comment, could repay me for the trouble I take in procuring it. I was about to suggest the expedi. ency of devoting an occasional niche in your much valued Paper to demonstrate the -necessity of establishing Inland Posts, but that I hear Government are going--to g-o to do so ! The state of our bye-roads loudly calls for some most severe remarks from the editorial pen. Really Sir, it is a crying, injustice that there is not...

Never .theless: in order to diofuse political knowledge among the lower orders, Ministers have agreed i(see our English News) to lower this 'duty first, because the sale of.Newspapers will be ;so 'much increased as to make up for the :deficiency which otherwise would arise to the Revenue--and secondly,.. because our glorious and immortal George: the Fourth is determined to diffuse' Newspaper know ledge among his poorer subjects !!!

THE MONITOR. FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 May 1827

TH..E 1M.EI.ONITOR. FRIDAY, MAY 4, 1827. By the Tyger's mail we have received Newspapers up to the 16th of December inclusive. The latest Paper in the Colony, and the only one we believe is the Times of the 16th. of December, which was duly forwarded to us. From this Paper we shall make a few Extracts. The following is expressive of the feeling of France on our joining the Portuguese in defending thenl from the imbecile but encroaching Ferdinand of Spain. London, Thursday, Decewber 14, 1826. EXPRESS FROM PARIS.-We received late last night the important document, the King of France's speech, on the opening of the Legislative Session. 'This speech proceeds as such a thing ought to do (menacing France only with that especial care of the liberty of the Press which indicates a mischievous intention towards it, and some improvement of the constitution of juries) till we come to the last sentence, which was probably added to the original composition after His Most Christian Maa jesty's Min...

Miscellanies of the 14th Dec. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 May 1827

Miscellanies of the 14th Dec. ON the loth December, the Duke of York was so much better as to transact public busines. He was however only convalescent. A quieter, but perhaps not less significant testimony of the tolerant temper of the present Administration, has been afforded by the King's answer to the Convocation of the Clergy. The two Houses went up to Court on Tuesday, and presented an Address full of gross faults of grammar and composition (clerical errors!) in which they repeat the old cry of "the Church in danger ;" and after admitting that it is " their duty to vindicate the Establishment in the spirit by which it professes to be governed," with moderation, conciliation, &c., they nevertheless call out lustily for the royal protection against " the efforts that are making to arrive at au thority and power in the state, dangerous to the exist ence ;of the Protestant Constitution." The gracious answer which his Majesty was advised to make, was relnarkably cool--a dam...

WE shall insert the pedigree of the famous blood Arabian Horse, JUNIUS, the champion of the colony, next week; in the mean time, Mr. Nash challenges the colony 1,000 guineas against 700, three times round the Parramatta Course, riders weighing 8st. 4Ib. On Monday next, a private race, on ground selected at Re- gent Villa, is to be run between Mr. Bayly's AUSTRALIAN, and Sir John Jamison's ABDALLA.--Mr. B. stakes 150 guineas against, Sir John's hundred. A subscription is filling-up for a cup, to be called JUNIUS'S CUP, to be run for at Parramatta next October. Junius ran the first heat at the late races"in five minutes". The second in   5 min. 2 sec. The course being gone twice over, and being a mile and a quarter round, the above speed is at the rate of "a mile in two minutes". The famous "Eclipse" never run but "once one single mile a minute". Junius's running, therefore, will excite a little surprise even at Newmarket, when it comes to be published there. To keep on t...

THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 4 May 1827

FRIDAY was the second and last day of the Sydney   Races; there was some capital sport, and Currency Lad was pronounced to have sterling bottom-he won the race cleverly. Junius being allowed to walk on the Course for the Town plate, generously added to the day's amusement, by giving it as a prize for another   race. Mr. Browne, of Windsor's horse, (untrained) bore it away. The weather was, after ten in the fore- noon, much more inviting than on Wednesday, and the Races were consequently well attended. We regret to say, several accidents occurred during the day, but with- out any fatal consequences. LAST week might be truly termed a sporting week, and was closed by an elegant aquatic display. The " Australian Regatta" drew forth groupes of admiring spectators, who availed themselves of the fineness of the day, and the commanding eminences which skirt the shores of Port Jackson, to witness this novel amuse- ment. There were three races--two for boats pulled b...

A CORRESPONDENT at Newcastle contradicts the report in the Australian, of a murder having been committed at Newcastle. It was occasioned by the examination before our Magistrates in Sydney in private of a person supposed to be connected some way or other with shoot ing of a black boy or man at Hunter's River so often alluded to, but hitherto in vain, by this Journal. TnE much talked of race' between Currency Lad atd" AbdaUlah, took place on Monday at Regent Ville, and was won by the former. Very few sporting characters, or of the fashionable world, were present; and the day's amusement went off, of course, proportionably flat.
