[WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 17 September 1835
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9.] Before Colonel Wilson, C. Windeyer and Robert &nbsp; Stewart, Esqrs., Police Magistrates, John Lamb, Thomas Barker, A. B. Sparke, J. Bingle, and H.C. Semphill, Esgrs. J. P.'s. William Watt again placed at the bar. Colonel Wilson. In compliance with the resolution of the Bench, I forwarded a letter to the Attorney General, and I have now the honour to submit his opinion to the Bench. (The purport of the Attorney-general's opinion was, that the Bench had an undoubted right to try a tick- et-of-leave holder on the charge of being a habitual liar, but it was the province of the Bench to consider what would amount to that charge.) Mr. Stewart. I am still of opinion that the two lies proved against the prisoner, are of such a nature as cannot be entertained by the Bench. Mr. Lamb. I believe, Mr. Stewart, there were three distinct lies proved against the prisoner, the last of which is undoubtedly such a one as can be enter tained by the Bench. From the argu...

STATE OF THE COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 17 September 1835
STATE OF THE COUNTRY. &nbsp; THE country is still suffering under a most af- flictive drought, and unless we are blessed with a copious supply of rain very soon, the conse- quences will be calamitous in the extreme. Working, and other, cattle have been dying in great numbers from want of sustenance, and several of the up-country settlers have been obliged to kill their calves and lambs, from the inability of the cows and ewes to suckle them. We are still, however, in hopes of abundance of rain about the vernal equinox, and we are most happy to be able to refer to the experience of a former year, of a somewhat similar character to the present, in which similar expectations were cherished and hapily realized. On this subject &nbsp; of universal interest, we gladly avail ourselves of the opportunity of laying before our readers the following extract of an Address, delivered by Sir John Jamison, to the Agricultural and Hor- ticultural Society of New South Wales, in the y...

.. ;:ROTESTS AGAINST THE ESTIMATES FOR THE YEAR 1836. - E insert the following Protests- taken by Mem :?lbers of. the Legislative Council on the subject of ??the Estimates for the year 1836. They cannot fail to:be interesting to our readers and to the ":: public generally, especially as they undoubtedly :i'.exhibit the sentiments of the whole community, s ?to the appropriation of the: Land 'leveniue for the-iiiaintenance of the Police and Jail' Establish-' inents' of the colony. , We trust they will have .'.i.heir .due'.influence, at Downing Street, in setting 'aside,the obnoxipus arrangement recently. carried irito effect, by command of the Right Honourable ;:th!iSecretary of State for the Colonies. Although I voted'for the Estimate for the Police 'and Jails, rather than embarrass the Government, yet I by no means concur in thinking that the whole expense of these establishments, including the erection of Court Houses 'and Jails, and amounting to 65,5001. for the year 1836, ought t...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE SYDNEY MONITOR. LETTER VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 17 September 1835
TO THE EDITOR OF THE SYDNEY MONITOR. LETTER VI. Szn,;-When we contrast the various religions: which have sprung up amongst men with the scheme of religion, contained in the New Testa ment writings we are irresistibly led to this con clusion that if this religion be not the true one, none other can be, and this certainly forms no. unsubstantial proof of the Divine origin of these' writings, " for while other religions have mostly sprang from the sportive conceits of witty specu lations, of philosophers, and poets, the religion of Jesus has a divine efficacy, and agreeable power suitable to' all hearts, it is adapted to the capacity of the most simple and ignorant, though infinitely raised 'above the philosophy of the wise. It is sublime without being nicely specu-. lative, and simple without being mean: in its sublimity preserving its clearness, and in its simplicity preserving its dignity. In a word there is nothing so great nor so inconsiderable in human society, but what may in so...

PROTESTS AGAINST THE ESTIMATES FOR THE YEAR 1836. S. [CONTINUED.] Wa .protest against the basis upon, which the Estimates of Experiditure laid before the Council have been framed; and more particularly against the sums appropriated to the maintenance of the Police and Jails, and the promotion of Imniigration respect ively; namely, the excess for the Police of 1835 of 20,000t.'and the insufficeincy.for Immigration in the sums: of 8,0001. for 18365, and 30,0001. for 1836. SFirst.-The Estimates of Expenses generally, are in our opinion excessive. SBecause, Considering the- number of:our free .adults does not much exceed Twenty thousand,, the amount is unprecedented, in the annals of Colonial 'Expenditure in any part of the British Dominions. Because, Initead of apportioning the current expenses to the Current .Revenue, it is proposed as will be seen by the following statement to incur ,an expenditure that will absorb, not only the whole balance of the Land Funids amounting to 129,7141....
