Blacksmiths’ shops, a brick granary (one hundred feet by twenty-two, with three floors), barracks for officers, huts for convicts, and other necessary buildings had been completed.

The foundation stone of St. Phillip’s Church had been laid at Sydney; and St. John’s, at Parramatta, was rapidly nearing completion. A “handsome and commodious stone gaol” had been built at Sydney, on the site where Essex-street now runs into George-street, and a large and elegant Government House had been built at Parramatta ...
