HIS Excellency the Governor having long viewed with Sentiments of Commisera- tion the very wretched state of the aborigines of this Country ; and having revolved in his Mind the most probable and promising Means of ame- liorating their Condition, has now taken the Re- solution to adopt such Measures as appear to him best calculated to effect that Object, and improve the Energies of this innocent, destitute, and un-
With this anxiety to make an Experiment so interesting to the Feelings of Humanity, and to endeavour to ascertain how far the Condition of the Natives may be improved by the Application of such Means as are within his Power, His Ex CELLENCY feels that he is making an Acknow ledgment to which they are in some Degree en- titled, when it is considered that the British Settlement in this Country, though necessarily excluding the Natives from many of the natural Advantages they had previously derived from the animal and other Productions of this Part of the Territory, has never met with any serious or de- termined Hostility from them, but rather a Dispo- sition to submit peaceably to such Establishments' as were necessarily made on the Part of the Bri- ish Government on the Formation of this Settle-
With a View, therefore, to effect the Civilization of the Aborigines of New South Wales, and to render theirHabits more domesticated and indus- trious, His Excellency the Governor, as well from Motives of Humanity as of that Policy which affords a reasonable Hope of producing such an improvement in their Condition as may eventu- ally contribute to render them not only more happy in themselves, but also in some Degree useful to the Community, has determined to in- stitute a School for the Education of the Native Children of both Sexes, and to assign a Portion of land for the Occupancy and Cultivation of adult Natives, under such Rules and Regulations as appear to him likely to answer the desired Objects ; and which are now published for gene-

THE Governor wishing to hold a public Conference with all those Tribes of the Natives of New South Wales who are in the Ha- bit of resorting to the British Settlements estab- lished in this Colony, in order to make a personal Communication to them on the Subject of the Native School or Institution which His Excel- lency is now about to establish, requests that they will assemble and meet him at the Market Place, in the Town of Parramatta, at the Hour of Eleven o'Clock in the Forenoon of Wednesday, the 28th of the present Month of December, that being the next Day after full Moon.

cation known to the Natives residing in, or re- sorting to their respective Districts, in due Time to enable them to attend and assemble accordingly.

MONDAY last being the Day appointed in
the Government and General Order of the
9th of January, 1813, for receiving Applications for Free and Conditional Pardons, and Tickets of Leave, His Excellency . the Governor was much surprised to find , that notwithstanding the Instructions contained in the Government and General Orders alluded to,- upwards of five
hundred Memorials were presented to him on this
As the Tenor of these Government and Gene- ral Orders appears to have been unattended to, not only by the applicants, but the Magistrate whose special Duty it was to make it the invari-
able Rule of their Conduct in subscribing Memo- rials, the Governor was under the unpleasant Necessity of rejecting a Number of Applications which came before Him in so irregular a Form . and which, alhtough they bore the Signatures of the Magistrates, were in many Instances (within His Excellency's personal Knowledge) not entitled to the Consideration they solicited.
In the Government and General Orders alluded to, of the 9th of January, 1813, it is expressly directed, that the Clergyman and Principal Ma-
gistrate of the Districts wherein the Memorial is to reside, shall certifv for those Persons only whose Characters they are personally acquainted with , and that they are " industrious, sober, honest
and truly meritorious " and such Orders farther prescribe, that Certifícates of the good Conduct of the applicants residing at Sydney, should be signed by the resident Chaplain and the Superi- tendant of Police there ; without which they would not be attended to.
On the late Occasion, His Excellency saw with much Concern and Disappointment, that the Magistrates at Sydney, and those in the Interior
had given their signatures to Memorials without
appearing to have attended to, or to have been guided by the Tenor of the Orders in Question ; whereby an unnecessary Acculumation of Trouble was imposed on Him, and which had in the first instance misled the Applicants, who were induced
to consider the Signature of a Magistrate as a sufficient Passport on this Occasion.
in order to prevent the Recurrence of such unpleasant Circumstances, His Excellency desires, that in future not only the Magistrates of the Colony, but also all Persons intending to apply for Mitigation of there Sentences of Trans-
portation, will strictlv and invariably conform theselves to the specific Terms of those Orders ; and that the Magistrates in particular will bear in Mind, and be governed by the Circular Com- munication made to them by Letter dated the 7th December, 1813, and especially the con- cluding, Passage of it, which for geueial Informa- tion is here repeated; viz.
"The Number of Applications made yesterday ' for free Pardons or Emancipations, having " far exceeded the Governor's Expectations, " and being in fact more than double the Number " he can comply with for two Years yet to come, " it is his Desire, that you shall not countersign " any further or new Applications of that Nature, " until these you have already certified shall '* have been finally disposed of."
And His Excellency now directs. that no Magistrates shall sign any Petitions or Memorials
for Conditional Pardons or Tickets of Leave. for the ensuing Year of 1815, until such as they
have already signed are disposed of : nor is any
Magistrate of Sydney, excepting the Superintend- ant of Police, authorised to sign or to recommend Memorials for Pardons or Tickets of Leave.
Private Individuals have only a Right to certify to the good Characters of their own Servants on their Memorials ; which, however, must also be countersigned by the Magistrate and Chaplain of
the District wherein such Memorialists reside.
His Excellency the GOVERNOR therefore orders and directs, that all Memorials and Petitions which shall be presented to him in future, either for Con- ditional Pardons or Tickets of Leave, shall be strictly examined by the Magistrates and Chap- lians, previous to their affixing their Signatures to them, and also have the under-mentioned Cer-
tificate attached thereto, signed by the Magis- trate and Chaplain ; v'iz.~
" I (or we) do in hereby certify, that from my" or our) best knowledge, the Petitioner is an honest, sober, and industrious Character , ' and such Memorials or Petitions as have not the said Certificate on the Face of them, signed as herein especially prescribed and directed; will have no
Attention whatever paid to them.

Government House Sydney Saturday 24th November 1814 Civil Department
1.In consideration of the long Continuance
of the late Drought and the consequent Unproductiveness of the present Harvest and with a View to compensate .in some Degree for the Disappointment and Loss which the middle and lower class of ihe settlers (.who are notwith- standing the principal Cultivators) will necessa- rily sustain by the Deficiency of their present crops, HIS EXCELLENCY the Governor has been pleased to order and direct, that the Deputy Commissary General shall pay for such Wheat as may be required during the present season for the use of theKing'stores, at the Rate of ten Shilling Sterling per Bushel, for what may be taken into the Stores at Sydney ; and at the Rate of Nine Shillings, per Bushell for what mav be re- ceived at ihe Government Stores, either at Parra-
matta or Windsor.
2. It being the earnest Wish of the Gover- nor, so far as is consistent with His Public Duty and the Interests of the Crown, to encourage and
stimulate the Exertions of the industrious Set- tlers, as wel as to promote the general Interests and Welfare of the Colony, by holding out to them all reasonable Prospect of Advantage there- from ; and it appealing to him from minute In- quiry, that the Settlers who turn their Attention principally to the Cultivation of Grain cannot bring it to Market, so as to have a reasonable Re- turn for their Labour and various expenses, ,at the Price some Time since established, His Ex- cellency is pleased to notify, that he will continue the Price of Wheat now fixed for the present season , for such Quantities as shall be required for the Service, of Government, for the Season ensuing to the present
3. The Liberality of the Price now estab- lished for the present and succeeding Season, it is trusted will induce the Settlers to be prompt in availing themselves of the Opportunities which will be publicly notified to them, for bringing their grain regularly into His Majesty's Stores at Sydney, Parramatta, or Windsor, and further in- duce them to cultivate such additional Quantities of Grain for the next Season, as the Extent of their Farms will enable them, and thereby pre- clude the Necessity which His Excellency will otherwise feel for again resorting to foreign
Markets for those Supplies which it must ever be the best Interest of the Colony to produce
4. For the more regular and impartial Re
ception of Grain and Animal Food into His Ma- jesty's several Stores at Sydney, Parramatta, and Windsor, His Excellency is pleased to order and direct, that hereafter the Storekeepers, or other Commissariat Officers in Charge of the Government Magazines at those Places shall keep au open Register for the Names of all Persons tendering to supply Grain or Animal Food for the Public Service, and specifying the Quanities tendered by each; and that the said storeheepers, or Officers of the Commissariat, shall furnish a List of the Names of those Persons, and the
Quantify of Grain or Animal Food so registered, to the Deputy Commissary General, vvith a View to his submitting the same to His Excellency the Governor for his Inspection and Approved, and thereon giving those Persons the necessary Notice of the Quantity of each which will be required, and of the Time when it is to be delivered.-for this purpose the Deputy Commissary General is
to publish the approved List once in every two Months in the Sydney Gaette, each List to bear Date the 25th of the Month in which it is to be published.
5. Persons in Charge of Government Maga- zines are not on any Account whatever to enter the Names of any Person in their Register, for the Supply of Grain or Flesh, but such as is well known to be a Cultivator and Grazier, and if there should appear any Reason to question or doubt the Representation of any Person making a Tender, it will be the Duty of the Officer in Charge of the store to make a clear Report thereon to the Deputy Commissary, stating the Causes of Doubt entertained by him ; and the Deputy Commissary in such Case to institute the suitable Enquiries without Delay, and to furnish the Storekeeper or Officer of'the Com- missariat with his Instructions thereon.
6. There being some Reason to apprehend that collusive Agreements are occasionally en- tered into by Persons lending their Names to others, and making Tenders of Grain and Fresh Meat not their own Property ; in order to do away the same, the Officers in Charge of Govern- ment Stores are hereby enjoined not to insert the
Name of any one Person for the Benefit of any other, and on all Occasions to be regulated bv the Principle of strict Impartiality, and with out Favor or Prejudice with Regard to Persons. In Cases where Collusion of the Kind now alluded
to shall be suspected, or any Endeavour made ' to produce the Admission of a greater Quantity of Meat or Grain than a fair Proportion, ac- cording to the Extent of the Land in Cultivation or under Pasturage held by the Applicant or Applicants, the Officer in Charge of the Store is to report thereon to the Deputy Commissary General, who is to investigate the Circumstances, and lay them before His Excfllency the Governor ; and if it should appear that Fraud was intended, all the Parties concerned therein wdl be deprived of any future Advantage arising fron His Majesty's Stores, and his or their Names and Places of Residence published in the Sydney Gazette, with a suitable Comment on the Nature of the Fraud intended to be practised.
7 It appearing also to have been the Practice with some Individuals to give in Tenders of Sup- ply at the several Stores of Sydney, Parramatta, mid Windsor at Ihe same Time, in order thereby to avail themselves of the Demands at each, and to the Prejudice of other Applicants who con- fined their Offers to one Station merely; His Ex cellency now orders and directs, that no Per- son's Name shall be inserted in the List intended
for Publication in the Sjdney Gazette for more than one Station ; and the Deputy Commissary Ge neral is required to guard , as far as in him lies, against any Individual procuring Acceptance for any Tender of a larger Quantity of either Animal Food or Grain, than he may be entitled to from thie Quantity of Stock in his Possession, or of
Land under Cultivation with bim.
8. The Storekeepers or Officers in Charge of Government Magazines are finally ordered and directed to regulate their future Conduct by the Instructions herein conveyed to them, and on no Account whatever to teceive Animal Food or Grain from any Person or Persons, other than those whose Names shall be from Time to Time published, for that Purpose in the Sydney Gazette, with the Official Signature of the Deputy Commissary
General affixed thereto.
9. The Stores at Sydney, Parramatta, and Windsor, are to open for the Reception of "Wheat for the present Season, on the 25th Day of Fe- bruary next ensuing. ' "
His Excellency the Governor orders and directs, that these Government and Ge- neral Orders shall be read by the Chaplains during the Time of Divine Service, in all the Churches or Places of Public; Worship within the Colony of New South Wales, on Sunday the 4th, and Sunday the 11th of December next ensuing.
