Description: Excerpt from An Historical and Statistical Account of New South Wales, Vol. 1 of 2: Both as a Penal Settlement and as a Settlement and as a British Colony

It is allowed on all hands that there is much in the present state of the Australian colonies to counteract the general tendency and efficiency of the Transportation system. In order, therefore, to show how such a state of things has been arrived at, I found it absolutely necessary, in projecting the present work, to take a retrospective view Of the state and progress Of the co lony from its original settlement to the present time. This retrospect, which I am confident has been taken with candour and impartiality, I have reason to believe will suficiently explain whatever might otherwise have appeared anomalous in the present aspect and con dition of the Australian colonies.
