Quite amazing to be able to read about colonial Sydney first hand as it was almost 200 years ago.
The Monitor was a biweekly English language newspaper published in Sydney, New South Wales and founded in 1826. It is one of the earliest newspapers in the colony.
The Monitor changed name several times, subsequently being known as The Sydney Monitor, and in June 1838 Francis O'Brien and Edwyn Henry Statham introduced themselves as the new editors of the re-branded Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser.
History:The newspaper was first published on 19 May 1826 by Edward Smith Hall and Arthur Hill. The paper was not without controversy in the colony, publicly taking up the cause of the poor and convicts with a motto that "nothing extenuate nor set down aught in malice" and being openly critical of the governing authorities.
