LUiY OU REPOt'TERt.] Great consternation was excited in the town on ''ltursdaiy iinorving, among the ticket men, their relalives, nd aulbove all, their creditors, by the protnilgation in the Government Ga zette, of a Government Order, annulling all those Government Orders on which ticket men receivred their tickets. h'lie order, however, is not retrospectice. It dues not say, that present ticket-men are to return to Government ser vice. We advise the ticket-men not to talk They are at the mercy of Government. It is not only therefore, .coinmmon sense, Ibut good polier, to trust to the forheorance and kind nets of Government. At the muster of tick. et-meni on Miodl4yv, no intimation was made to them, that their tickets would be taken from them. The order tends to divest those of their tickets only, who may not have served all tile. time prescribed by the Act of Parliament 13ut all those whlo have served the time so specified, are quite safe. But they must cease to be master umen. They canniiot holl pro perty. 1We have seen a certificate bya compe:tent judge, of the success whicih has attended the l3oarding Schlol of Mlr IIarilonD. near Campbell I Town, ill the rapid inmprovement of his pupils since e he commenced his establish ment, so useful in that quarter. AMr Ml'Kaeg of thie huilk,'has been ordered to sulerintendl fifty men from the j il, in prepar. i?g a jpiece of ground at Goat Island for the erection of a powder-magazine, tlie men being of course worked in irons. We suppose Alr Al wi'l be lookinig out for an advance of ta lury, for these h!s extra services. \Ve are sorry to hear, that that old Engliah custom, at once cowardly and eruel, is coniiiig grndually iino fashion in this Colony, naunely, bull-hnlitiug; uint to inmake it still more cow ardly, our Australian " fatcy" prefetr old, worn-out ox",I i \\'e are hiup ly, to say, that the "' Theatre /loyal' as it is citlled, was ini request on ''ttuesday, and that the " corps dramatic" exhilithed still further imnprovelnent in t/e p'rifession. -ix hundred Acres of Land at Brislbane Water were sold last week, fur £3(65. by Alr Bodenhlam.

Brooke Lodge a as brought to the h1mmrner by Mr Samuel Lvons, on 'lhursdtay last, and knocked down to the Rev Joseph D)ocker for 3001." On the same day, Photnix Park was bruight to the hammer in allotments, and knocked down to Messrs John \M'Donald, J. C, Phelpi-, L S. Edwards. J. T. IHughes, Juli Ma laolm, and Jolin Al'Larren, at an average of 32s. per acre; Each allotment. I inent had a fine water frontage of the river; I the central allotment of Forty Acres, which is surrounded by water, is to be pnt up to auction in the course of three weeks, in allot ments,'o correspond to those allotments already sold on ihe opposite aide of the river; this ground is very valuable on account of its belig.very high, and " the only part fit for bunilding stores and granaries. Goulburn Grove, a valuable estate adjoin ing Phomenix Park, will shortly hie brought to the hammer. It is said, that a house in Sydney has bargained already with other houses in Van Diemen's Land, for 10,000 bushecls of wheat. We doubt this. It is a very hazardous speculation. Our harvest turns out much better than was expected, not withstanding the smut and rust. . A great deal of wheat was sown last season, and where much is sown, much will be ga thered, in spite of drawbacks. A fellow named Kennedy, contrived to place a shawl which lay on the counter of a publican, in his bosom, but not without being seen to'do so. Committed to take his trial for the offence. A contemporary is noisily indignant at a private gentleman preferring to give his news to one paper, in lieu of another. This is not fair. Every gentleman ought to be at liberty in this respect, and not be hoisted into a public paper on such im pertinent grounds. Mr. Beveridge, we perceive, has an nounced the re-opening of his very bene- ficial Academy, at reduced prices, agreea- bly to the custom of the times. Mr. B's. industry, and of course means of support, have been greatly injured by the Australian College. It is good to see competition in teaching "the young idea" &c. as in trade and farming, but how far it is either publicly useful or liberal, for the public to subscribe to an a, b, c. school and an AB ab College, to destroy such worthy school masters as Capt. Beveridge, we care not to enquire. A College should be supported. But that is not a College (such as plain men understand by the term) which teaches not only the higher departments of learning, but also thrusts out to beggary the hum- ble instructor of the rudiments of learn ing? Mrs. Brown re-opens her Academy at the residence built by Mr Cooper the architect, one of the best houses, and certainly the most healthy and picturesque situation in the Town of Sydney. Mrs. Brown is a lady, who, ow- ing to her manners and accomplishments, de- serves the public patronage in the highest degree. She for a long time gave private tuition to the daughters of Mr. Justice Dow- ling, Mr Campbell of Bligh-street,. &c. Our old friend Grono, will never' cease doing something in the Jack-tar line, so long as he continues to have the full use of his very active body and mind, hitherto exercised in labours the most useful to his adopted country. In about two months, he will launch another vessel, built by him on his farm at Pitt-town. The lf'illiam the fourth steamer, has returned from Windaor, and brought down a good lot of wheat. There is some talk of a monthly Ileli gious magazine. A miscellaneous magn zine will not answer in New South Wales for se.ven -y'ears to come, much less a reli gious one. lie must be a novice, who un dertakes such a work. SvNIY T'I'iATniar.-On T'lhursday night, there was not a full, bht there was a very gen. tee: house, the boxes showing off militarv oli ers in full dress, their wives and daughters.

Counsel, it is said, is allowed by Mr Rossi against a prisoner, but not for him. If this be true, it is extremely unjust, the law to the contrary in anywise notwithstanding. It is also said, that the Sydney Bench refused the other day, to hear a money complaint, on the plea of its being merely a civil affair. Swind ling , whether in money, bills of exchange, or property, is not a civil, but a criminal affair. We know that our country Justices have in terfered in civil disputes, and even acted the part of Sheriffs. But swindling , such as ob taining money, or obligations to pay money, upon false pretences, are all acts of a cri minal nature, and ought to be heard and de termined by the police. Sir R. Birnie heard a dozen a.veek of such cases, and committed thereon. It is calculated, that half'the number of prisoners who debark annually ini the Colony, embnark annually for the penal settlements. A proof of the incorrigible love of thieving in the prison population sent hither. Tile Elrza Frances, an English whaler, has been obliged to come to this Port, on account of part of her crew having mutinied. The mnutineers are all in jail, and will, pr6hably have been examined before this. Journal goes to press. The weathier still continues very droughty, mnalgrb the showers which have fallen here and there. Lieutenant Blackburn it is said, has resigned his command of the mounted police, in favour of Lieutenant Daley. Some of the mounted police are acting the part of Magistrates as well as police-men, i. e of drunken magistrates. This, it is reported, was the case last Wednesday night at the "Cherry Gardens, when a police-man in dis guise, proceeded ex-officio, to ransack the house. Another of these self appointed Jus tices, also drunk, acted Purtell over again, (knowing no doubt, that the Supreme Court has laid it down as law, that the police must be supported,) and took a man from his own door in another direction, swearing he was " a d-d rascal of a bushranger!" As the Overseer of Captain Btunn was rap ping" at the door of a friend, on the night of Saturday. a passer-bly catne up to speak to him: he bade him good night, but at the same nno merit, and while his face was directed to tlhat of the quiescent rapper at the door, the fel. low introduced two fingers to the opening of his fob, and in ano instant drew for'h the con tents, a silver watch, and immediately ran. Unluckily for this man of brass, lie was met by the conissithhis who were going their rounds, anid they, not liking his flurried mllunllcr, took hian into cnstody end kept his watch. The ownler coise up and detclared how tile felliow had come by it. lie was sentenced by the Char/les to the watch-house, until taken be fore the police. SPEED ou ST?EAM NAVIGATION.--At half past eight o'clock last Monday morning, cer tain tmaize, horses, and a cart, were at Alait. land, and were put on board the Soph/a ,ancl steamer at that hour.

It is proposed to the Government, that all constables before they receive their fee for killilg a dog, shall satisfy the Bench that they have burnoed thlie body.

Alr Lyons, wishing to make the most of his castle-like foundation at the corner of Church lill, proposes adding another story to his fine structure. Tobacco and wool presses are now mnanu factured by one Mr Bayles. This deserves encouragement. On Christmas day, a fire broke out in the kitchen of Air Chisholm of 'George-street, owing to our old Colonist's extraordinary pre parations for the f:stivities of the (lday. For. tunately, it was got under before it extended beyond part of the roof, which though a shingled one, was not so combustible as is most other timber, such as pine, "cedar &c. It created however intense anxiety and alarm among the spectators until it was got under. A new powder magazine is to be built on Goat Islutid. A Mr Bennett of Druitt-street, has lost -come pre perty by h!s house being forced on .Friday wh:le he was away from home. Competition is good for trade. On this principle, Mr Hyland, carcass butcher, and one of the pleasantest to deal with in the Colony, as well in manners as in zeal and punctuality of all sorts in his businrse, it is reported, is about to overthrow the veterans Aspinall and Mackie, in soap-boiling and candle making. The dark coloured stone now laying on the Sydney streets is worth putting on. The whi:e is an extravagant mode of laying out the sums appropriated by the Council.for repairing thie streets. We hope to see none but the best matefials used in future. 'There is plenty of the best at Penant Hills; the best, though dear at'first, beisng the cheapest in the entld.

William and Thomas Richards have been committed by the Sydney Bench, to take their trial for the abduction of an Orphan school girl, on the evidence of her mother.
