WEDNESDAY, 14TH DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
WEDNESDAY, 14THn DECEMEirn. The Assembly met at half-past three o'clock. Mr. Forster, moved that the House go into a com mittee of the whole to consider resolutions in favor of a subsidy for a telegraph to connect Australia with the lines of Anglo-Indian telegraph. There existed already a connected line, either completed or nearly completed from London to the east end of Java. Tlito submarine wires from Aden to Curra chee and rf6imSingapore to Batavia were not laid, and' these were the principal parts of the entire chain left unfinished; but these, it was certain, would be completed long before the Australian line could be constructed. T'h line would be brought from Java to the Australian coast by stations on the intervening islands, and then submerged a short distance from the shore to Brisbane. Though some of the lines in this system belonged to different States, still no tariff would be fixed without the concurrence of England and of the company to be formed. Nor would there be a...

FRIDAY, 9TH DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
FRIDAY, fTi DECEMBER. The Legislative. Assembly met at twenty-five minutes past three o'clock. Mr. Wilson moved that the export duty on gold ,be repealed. Judging from the number of licenses issued, there were- 16,000 gold-miners. There would have been a much larger number if it had not been for unwise restrictions. Legally speaking, the diggers did not occupy more than 1,000 acres of land, while their licenses gave for these 1,000 acres an annual rental of £8,000. The squatter occupied 16,000 acres for, a -yearly rental, including license and assessment, of only £40. The squatter had the fat of the land; the digger only the barren spots. Mr. Samuel: The Government were favorable to the repeal of this tax, and, if they remained in office, would take up the subject early next year. Mr. Hawkins, Mr. Pemell, and Mr. Clements supported the motion. Mr.. Plunkett thought the motion inopportune, and should move the previous question. Mr. Hoskins said the gold revenue was estimated at £47,0...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
The estimates for next year prepared .by the ?FORSTER Government contain, we are happy to notice, an item for the improvement of our harbor. It is some time since we applied to ,the Government for moneys for a breakwater, but our application was treated with comparative indifference. Other localities receive due at tention while this is quite neglected. At length, however, our just claim is being recognised. The sum put on the estimates for our break -water is but £10,000-a sum quite inadequate to the completion of the work. But as the .,Government is necessitated to borrow for the .construction of public works, we presume the .object of the Government in voting, in the out ,set, this insufficient sum, is merely to save themselves from having interest to pay for a }larger sum which might not all be expended -during next year. 'This sum is sufficient to *commence with, and -when this is expended, an 'additional grant can be obtained. The Government of this colony for years back has ....
THURSDAY, 8TH DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
THURSDAY, 8TH DECEMBER. - .The Legislative Assembly met at twenty-five minutes past three o'clock. In reply. to Mr. Robertson, the Colonial Secretary said the Crown Law officers were considered to form a separate department, but were under the control of the Colonial Secretary. On the motion of Mr. Samuel, the House went into Committee of Ways and Means. Mr. Samuel moved that a certain sum be granted to her Majesty to provide for the public service of 1860. He regretted that he could only show a balance at credit of revenue of £16,359 8s. 9d., instead of the £101,000 as shown by his prede cessor. This difference was chiefly owing to the separation of Queensland. On this account it had been found necessary to reprint the estimates, and advantage had been taken of this opportunity to make some other alterations. But, in the main, the revised estimates were much the same as those of the late Government. Among the new items there were £12,500 which it was proposed to set aside annually ...

TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION WITH ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Examiner — 17 December 1859
TRLEo?, APImo COMMUNICATION WITH ENOGLAND.-It willbe seen by the resolutions which Mr. Forster has moved in the Assembly, that Now South Wales is in the first instance asked to pay £9625 per annum towards the -proposed submarine telegraph from Moreton Bay to East Java. This subsidy is to be reduced to £7,700 by the contributions of the minor colonies. Victoria is to con tribute .£25,375-also to be reduced to £20,300 in the same manner. ,The whole subsidy asked for is, there fore, £35,000; and in distributing the contributions of the several colonies, the proportions in which they con tribute towards the postal subsidy have been preserved. Thus Now South Wales will e6ntribute 25 per cent.., and Victoria 58 per cent. of the whole amount, though in the first instance tile contributions of these two colonies are fixed at 27+ per coent. and 75} per cent. respectively, so that tile compaily should deal with them alone, leaving New South Wales and Victeoria to deal with the minor colonies....
