Ik our last issue we commented upon one or two of the most obvious defects in the Minis terial Land Bill, but by no means completed our list of grave obi ections against it which should make the Legislature refuse to pass it in its present shape. In our present land system the interests of only two of the three classes of which this community consists were studied, while the third, and by far the largest portion of our society, looked on with amazing indifference while their interests were sacrificed. In 1861, the battle was fought out as be tween the squatters and the freeholders, and the Legislature, in attempting to adjust the balance between these noisy rivals, neglected the people who are only so far interested in the soil, inasmuch as their trade and pros perity depends upon the success of our very important agricultural and pastoral interests. Nine-tenths of the people of this colony have no direct interest in the laud except as its ample revenues may diminish the load of tax...

It is now about twenty months since the late Premier, Mr. Henry Parkes, and our repre sentative, Mr. James Watson, visited this district. At that time our roads could not be travelled upon, while the bridges in the township were carefully avoided by all tra vellers. Even Mr. Parkes was driven over Dissension Greek, as it is termed, without risking his limbs upon the dilapidated struc ture which we have been accustomed to call a bridge. We are not aware that a single shilling of the public money has since that day been expended upon our bridges. Ever since this visit of the Premier and the mem ber for the district they have been unsafe, and for several months have not been used at all. ' We are quite prepared to admit that Mr. James Watson owes no debt of gratitude to the inhabitants of Burrowa, yet we may be pardoned for reminding him that he ought not to allow the chart of his favourite town ship of Young to eclipse the whole Lachlan Electorate, and that from every member of the As...
