Queanbeyan. TO THE EDITOR OF THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 31 December 1838
Qteanbeyan. To TRE EOITOE OF THE bdty Monitor and Commercial Adoertiser. S55,-On my way to this part of the eantry. I have to complain much of the wanner in which travellers sire treated by inch proprietors. In company with a genlIeman and lady, I came to Campheti. tw by the mail. We stopt at Fennel's. In the morning. at a quarter before six. tie coach started from Hurly'a, with two issengers who had ,ot come up from Sydney the previous night, as we had done,and left us three Sydney ,pasenzers behind, without blowing the hosrn or fiving the least intimtstion of starling. We had to remain two days, and when we complained to one of the proprietors at Berrima, he sheflled U4 oif by saying we had no regulation as to tine of startine stated in our asreemeint. an I therefore we were without redress. There ought to be a reeulation insert'd in the coach license4, to compel proprietors of coaches to ae on honest part in this respect. I never witnessed such a change in the appearance of the c...
The Sydney Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 31 December 1838
The Sydney . Herald. The Elitor of the Sydney Hlerall in his journal of the 28th, taunts us with our writings on the admninistration of Genieral D trlinz in such terms, as may induce those who were not in the colony in 'those days, to think. ,that we have reason to repent `of them. As this is far from being' the case, and' we, on the c .atirary, being of opinion, that if it had not been for our writings General Darling might have been here to this day, (and such was the opinion of Mr. Hume, M.P.) we_ feel disposed to say something, but at the same time do not like the tr wuhle. But as perhaps half of the present inhabitants of Sydn y were not in the colony in Darling's time, and as they may be amused with an a*count of a reiv (only a few) of the charges we brought against General Darling, we orewent the it with.the following copy of a letter, which we, at the time it was written,'published in this journal. We ware suffering at. the instant under the verdicts of General Darling's pac...

TO T'HE EDITOR Tii Sydney Monitor and Cmmtnercial Advertiser. Sia,-VWhen the C'sniila left Van Dieman's Land, no Influenza had wutle its appearance. On let pasage. the officers,crewand passenger-., vere taken sick, and rteir syinptnmns sehitvd it to Pe the Influ enza. The attack was -very vh.lent in some in stances, and severe it mo't. The -Capta1n, on the anchoring of the ve-se!, could -not walkt;but was conveyed to his lodgings in a moveable bed. . This incident plainly proves, that if the Inflnenza be contagious, it is (to use rather a pedantic dis tinction of the Colniist) alto infecti.n-. That it is communicated by the atmasophere, independently on contact either with the body'or breath of a person. is now certain. It does-not follow, (I believe) that it may not be also coatsgions. . 1 1 am, Sir, Yours,'
State of Trade. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 31 December 1838
State of Trade. -0- Owing fo the lateness of the shearing, and the -difficulty of getting thewool down to Sydniey, trade -is just now less active than usual at this season; but, as the supply of goods continues moderate, we believe the businsse transacted is done.at a fair profit. Ja some of the staple commodities prices -have receded; less, however, from any falling off in the demand than from a better supply of the 'market. Considerable additions have lately been made to our stock of sugar and tobocco, which, consequently, may be pnrchased lower. Teas and spirits asintain former quotations. WVithin the last 'fortnight, the new clip, to a very limited extent, has made its appearance in the market. Average lots of fair condition have sold from l6l. to 1Sd.; choice parcels of pure breed, and thoroughly svash'd, have realized, in some few instances, as .sigh as .MOd. -Inferior wools, imperfectly washed, have been sold at so wide a range of prices (condi tion isfiluencing the price mor...

(From the MORNING CIRON[CLs of 10th August.)' We insert a letter from Mr. Bode, of Marklanet on the state of tie crops and the w Wriing of the corn laws. Believing as we do that the corn-laws are in the highest degree impolitic and unjust, we do not sed with what justice Mr. Bode can blame the Board of Trade for the working of thesellaws, it being notorious that the Board. of Tride could not influence either branch of the Legislature,'isnd that the landowners, who have a maj'irity in both Houses; are. particularly sensitive on this subject. The fruitlessness of the late'attempt toallow bondedl corn to be ground, wider circumstances affording the utmost security against. the possibility of-intro ducing any part of the corn so ground into con sumption, sufiiently proves, that the hearts of the landlords are dead to all consideration for the peo. pie 'where corn is concerned. We would fain hope, that the prospect of the country with respect to supply is not so Ibad as Mr. Bode represen...

The "Bounty" Immigrants. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 31 December 1838
The " Bounty" Immigrants. A Distressing Case -A. friend of ours Informed us,, that yesterday about twelve o'clock, he was accosted in George-street by a decently clad woman &nbsp; with an infant about three months old at her breast, imploring him for relief, stating that her husband was dying, her three infants starving and herself ill. Our informant neglected making many inquiries but learned that the poor woman, her husband, and family had recently arrived. We have not known an instance of this kind of distress since we have been in the colony. Our informant also states he is confident they are objects of charity. Really it is deplorable to see, persons seduced ft om their poor humble homes, to emigrate to this colony, merely to supply our wealthy selfish graziers with labour, and then if they are encumbered with two or three children to be left to starve In the land of strangers. We call on the emigration agent, the emigration Committee, and Mr. Thomas Walker, the agent f...
NEWS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 31 December 1838
NEWS OF THE DAY. 'To TuEATarE.-On Monday evening last, a gentlemann from the Hobart Town and Launceston Theatres, of the name of Jacobs appeared at our Theatre for the first time. The parts selected by the dlebuent were Aldwinkle in the Spectre Bridegroom, and Alorbleu in the farce of Allonsieur Tonson. The famous song of The Renu of GOuse, was also -an nounced to be sung by Ri r. Jacobs, between the in terlutde and the after-piece. On Mr. Jacobs' ap p-earance, he was greeted with that applause which i; always bestowed by a syduey audience by way of encouragement os evety new comer at his or her first entrd. The farce of the Spectre Brldegroom, is a laughable one, containina some droll situations and whimsical rgeinoque. The mistakes and appre hensions of the Aldwinakle fanuily, the superstitions terrors of Dickory, and the ludicrous surprise of Mr. NVacodeaus, keep the audience in continual mt-rti "ment; the farce has been played here repeatedly, with spencer for Nicodernus, Peat a...
