TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 October 1835

TO CORRESPOWNDENTS. We feel obliged to A Subscriber for his friendly letter relative to the manner in which a late trial was con- ducted in the Supreme Court, as also, for his highly fa- vourable opinion of ourselves; but we think it better to   let the matter rest now, as the insertion of anything fur- ther respecting it would not serve any good purpose. We feel obliged to another Subscriber for informing us that Mr. Fell, now of The Gazette establishment, was a fellow clerk and old chum of Watt's in England, and that we may expect more of Messrs. Todd and Morris- son's men out by and bye. We suspected as much our selves, but we cannot insert our correspondent's commu- nication. The epigram he subjoins is a good one, but it is not original : We do not like thee, Mr. Fell! The reason why, we cannot tell; But this we know, and know full well, We do not like thee, Mr. Fell. It was first applied to a Dr. Fell, a person of some note in his day ; but even in his case it was ...

Colonial Politics. FINAL REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 October 1835

FINAL REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON IMMIGRATION. IT has doubtless been a fortunate circumstance that the publication of this important document has been unavoidably delayed till the recent fall of rain had terminated the late afflictive drought, and revived the drooping spirits of the settlers. Nobody seems to have ever thought of Immi gration during the.. prevalence of the drought; and whenever the subject was incidentally alluded to, the unfavourable state of the country-the want of pasture for the cattle, and the threatened failure of the wheat crop-was uniformly ap pealed to as an argument against the measure,.to which no satisfactory reply could be offered for the moment. But the unmerited benignity of :!iDivine Providence, in at length visiting and blessing the colony with the latter rain, has aroused the colonists from this momentary feeling. :: of despondency, and awakened them to a right sense of their own best interests, as well as of the vast importance of a well-regulated I...

REMARKABLE HAIL-STORM AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 1 October 1835

REMARKABLE HAIL-STORM AT NEW- CASTLE. [FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT ASHMOLE." ON Saturday the 19th of September the town of Newcastle on the Hunter, was visited by a thun- der-storm, the recollection of which, from its accompanying phenomena, will not soon be ob- literated from the memory of its inhabitants. On the day preceding there had been a hot wind from the N.W., the thermometer in the shade under my verandah having stood at 84° at 4 P. M., and the evening having set in with lightning to the S. S. E. and S. W., the thermometer at 8 P. M. having showed 70°, while showers fell at inter- vals during the night, to the great refreshment of the cattle after so long a period of dry weather. At 8 A. M. on Saturday the 19th, the thermome- ter stood at 62°, the morning being dark and showery, and at 2. P. M. it had risen to 66°. On a sudden, while sitting in my house--the roof of which is by no means one of the strongest -- after a flash of lightning accompanied by thunder, I was roused by a ...

TO MESSRS. WILLIAM WALKER AND CO., SYDNEY. London, May 12, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 October 1835

TO MESSRS..WILLIAM: WALK~ER AND .CO., SYDNEY. London, May 12, 1835., DEAn SIns.--I" observe in The Sydney .Monitor of the .13th of December last,, a Letter on Emi gration from Dr. Lang, in which he aims a blow that can hardly' be meant for any body but me ; where he says, (speaking of ;emigration as at present conducted).. 'the best interests of the colony will assuredly be sacrificed (as it can easily be proved they are at present,) to the pri vate convenience and interest of mercenary job bers." I hesitate, however, in coming to the conviction that this writer can really mean me, in this paragraph, for' he was repeatedly at my office when here, had interviews on different oc casions with the Emigration Committee, and ex-. pressed in strong terms, his conviction that they (the Committee) were rendering great and solid services to the colonies. He was certainly an advocate for combining, as much as possible, sound family emigration with that of females ;. but, in the abstract, no ma...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE COLONIST. Sydney, October 7, 1835. Slt.-.-I feel obliged by your permitting me to avail myself of so early an opportunity of inform ing the public, through your paper, of the reaL. state of .the matter, in reference to the charge brought against me by Mr. Marshall, in his letter to Messrs. W. Walker and' Co., of the 12th of May last, The only ship that had arrived in tile colony previous to my leaving it for England in July 1833, was the Red Rover, and as upwards of 100 of the females by that vessel had then got married in the colony, while the rest were for the most part in the service of private families, I was not disposed to look unfavourably on the system. Any person may satisfy himself of this by refer ing to my book. On arriving in England, I was told that the 'Bussorah Merchant and the Layton had sailed with female emigrants for the colony, and I was not long left in ignorance as to how some of the emigrants sent out to us had been selected, as I read in...
