13. Letters From Australia By Martineau, John  236 Pages
Author’s Introduction : THE Following Letters Were Most Of Them Written In Australia In 1867, And Were Published In The Spectator In The Course Of That And The Following Year. Some Are Reprinted Without Alteration, Others Have Been Added To And Altered, And Others Are New. No Attempt Has Been Made To Mould Them Into A Continuous Or Complete Account Either Of The Past History Or Present Condition Of The Three Colonies Which They Endeavour To Describe. Those Of The Colonies Which Are Old Enough To Possess A History Have Had It Already Written.
Author’s Introduction : Shortly After My Arrival In The Colony In 1826, I Was Appointed To A Commission Of Inquiry Into The State Of The Aborigines. Previous To That, Martial Law Had Been Proclaimed About Bathurst, Where The Blacks Had Been Committing Serious Aggressions Under Monday, Their Chief. My Journey, Extending Over 1,600 Miles, Occupied Six Months. I Lived Partly With These People, So As To Ascertain Their Number, Language, Habits, &C., And Proposed A Scheme Of Reserves, As In Canada, A Border Police, And Missionary Education, But The Cost, £6,000 Per Annum, Was Considered Too Much, And My Suggestion Was Therefore Not Acted On. I Was Subsequently Examined, Together With Mr. Robinson And The Rev. Mr. Threlkeld, Before The Committee Of The Legislative Council, About 1837, From Which Much Information Was Acquired. The Present Work Is Part Of A Largo Manuscript, And I Have Thought It A Favourable Opportunity To Publish It, Now That Fresh Interest Is Awakened About These People, Devoting Any Profits To The Missions Lately Established Within New South Wales.
Author’s Introduction : Australia Has Reached An Interesting Stage In Her History. She Has Completed The First Five Years Of Her Hfe As A Commonwealth, A Sufficiently Long Period For Her To Gain A Consciousness Of Her Duties And Her Destinies As A United Nation. The Volume Of Her Annals Up To The Ist Of January, 1901, While She Was Still Composed Of Separate Colonies, Is Finished. But It Is Not Closed And Done With. On The Contrary, Its Early Chapters Have Acquired A New Meaning And Value. Australians Should Look, Backwards As Well As Forwards. They Will Find In The Records Of The Discovery And Settlement Of Their Country Guidance And Inspiration For The Future.
Author’s Introduction : It Is Especially Appropriate That The Nineteenth Century, The History Of Which Has Been Dominated By The Spirit Of Nationalism, And Which Has Witnessed The Important Federal Unions Of Switzerland, Canada And Germany, Should Also See Its Last Days Crowned By The Unification Of The Segregated Colonies Of Australia Into A Strong Federation Under The Flag Of Great Britain. The Federal State Promises To Be As Distinctly The Dominant Type Of Modern Governmental Organization As The City State Was Of Ancient Greece. For This Reason Alone, The Australian Federation Is Especially Worthy Of Study, As The Latest Product Of The Spirit Of The Age.
Author’s Introduction : Australia's Geological Romance For You In England, Or In Any Of The Older Countries Of The World, There Need Never Be Any Lack Of Material For Romance. It Is At Your Very Doors. Your House Itself May Be Built Upon Some Spot Of Earth Hallowed By Remembrances Of The Past, Sacred To Some Brave Deed. All Over England, Scotland, Ireland, And Wales There Are Few Places That Are Not Made Familiar By The Pages Of History, And Endeared By What We Now Call Romance. To Those Who First Used It, The Old Word "Romance" Did Not Convey The Same Meaning That It Does To Us. Behind The Words "A Knight," "A Horse," "A Fairy," "A Girl," Long Ago There Lay Romance ; And Those Were The Days Of Brave Deeds And Stout Blows.

Sive Scriptores Septentriotiales Rerum Ante,Columhianarum In America.This Interesting Publication, The Fruit Of Great Literary Labour, And Extensive Research, Clearly Shews That The Eastern Coast Of North America Was Discovered And Colonized By The Northmen More Than Five Hundred Years Before The Reputed Discovery Of Columbus.
By Charles White
Author’s Introduction : The Early History Of Bushranging In Australia Will Never Be Written, For The Facts Have Never Been Recorded.Limited Though The Colony Was In Extent, Its Literature , Even Its Journalism , Was Still More Limited. Moreover, The First Men Who "Took The Bush" Were Neither Important Nor Interesting Enough To Obtain More Than A Passing Mention In Those Governors' Dispatches Which Are Our Chief Authorities For Early Colonial History. Owing To The Stringent Military Rule During The First Years Of Convict Settlement, The Unknown Character Of The Country, And The Absence Of Prey In The Shape Of Men With Money Or Other Possessions [The Aborigines Being The Only Occupants Of The Soil Outside The Properly Formed Settlements], Those Who Were Called Bush rangers Then Were Simply Men Who Had Broken Away From Their Gangs In The Hope Of Escaping From The Torture Of Labour Under Government.
Author’s Introduction : Throughout The Continent The Physical Appearance Of The Australian Aborigines Tends Toward Uniformity, A Fact Which Gives Further Support To The Evidence Of Long Isolation As Afforded By A Study Of The Animals And Plants. A Mixing Of Races Of Different Physical Types Produces Many Varieties, But, On The Contrary, Isolation Favors The Production Of One Specialized Species.
By Germany Of Holland.
Author’s Introduction : There Are Many Histories Of Australia And Many Descriptions Of Its Scenery And Customs ; But No One Has Presented A General View Of The Commonwealth, Both As A Country And A Nation, As Mr. Bryce, For Instance, Has Done For The United States.Yet Australia, From Her Geographical Position,,If For No Other And More Sentimental Reason, Must Always 03 Be Of Interest To The Empire. Dominating The Pacific, And Placed Astride Of The Trade,Route Between America And China, She Is Not Only The Outlying Frontier Of England Towards The Far East,Which Is The Empire's Most Vulnerable Side,But She Is Also The Ultimate Heir Of Java, Sumatra, And The Celebes, In The Event Of The Absorption.
Author’s Introduction : The Object Of A Novel Is, As A General Rule, To Reflect Life And Temperament In A Selected Environment. For Various Reasons It Has Become The Fashion To Achieve This End By Indirect Means. The Present Work Is Merely An Attempt, And An Obviously Imperfect One, To Do Directly What The Travelled And Cosmopolitan Novelist Does In An Indirect Way. That Is To Say, It Is An Attempt To Mirror In Some Fashion The Social Life, The Literary Life, The Individual Life, The Present , Day Life, Of A Developing Continent And Four Millions Of People.
