Details:Mr. John Wood to Archdeacon Scott. Reverend Sir, Maitland, Saturday, 15th August. 1829. Since my arrival here, several applications nave been made to me to Baptize infants, to which my reply has been that you have forbidden me to do so except in cases of extreme danger. Last Infants baptized Monday, Mr. Henry Hewitt having written to me stating his infant Daughter to be in this condition I baptised her; she is since dead. A short time back a man named Smith was desirous to have his Child Baptized, who afterwards died without the ceremony being performed. At present the following persons, residing immediately in this neighbourhood, request Baptism for their children, viz.. Redman for a Girl 19 months old, Stewart for a boy 4 months old. Singleton for a boy 2 months old, Prentice for a boy 19 months old and a Girl 7 weeks old, Simpson for a Boy 5 weeks old, Cliff for a Girl 6 weeks old, and Hannan for a Boy 3 weeks old. All these,- with the exception of Redman, profess to be Protestants. Redman is a Roman Catholic, but he wishes notwithstanding to have his Child Baptized, when a Clergyman comes for that purpose. A man named Ryan, who is a Romanist, refuses on -that account to bring his child. Last Wednesday, being with my family at New- castle, I waited upon the Revd. F. Wilkinson and stated the case to him ; he objected to come to Maitland which is the occasion of this letter. I have, &c,

Details:Governor Bourke to Right Hon. E. G. Stanley. (Despatch No. 57. per ship James Harris; acknowledged by earl of Aberdeen, 24th December, 1834.) Sir, Government House, 2 July, 1834. I have the honor to inform you that, some short time be- fore Archdeacon Broughton left this for England, it was known in the Colony that the Revd. G. K. Rusden and family intended to come out with the view of settling in the Colony, if Mr. Rusden could procure any employment in his profession to occupy his time and augment his income. It occurred to the Archdeacon and myself that the opportunity would be favorable for removing one of a Class of Persons, who have not been found to succeed here, and that Mr. Rusden might be advantageously placed as Chaplain at Maitland in the room of the Catechist, Lieut. Wood of the Royal Navy, whose appointment it was desirable to reduce. Lieut. Wood is a man of excellent character and great moral worth; but, as has been formerly intimated to the Secretary of State, the Catechists have not been found to obtain that influence over the People to whom they preach, which usually attends the labours of an Ordained Minister. Two Catechists were therefore previously reduced, and a third has been replaced by Mr. Rusden since the 1st Instant. The latter is to receive the same stipend and allowance as a Catechist for the remainder of this year; but I have proposed and the Legislative Council have consented to fix his stipend at 200 per annum for the year 1835, the stipend of a Catechist being 182 10s. only.
