ENGLISH EXTRACTS. (From the Colonial Gazette June 1, 1839.) [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 October 1839

ENGLISH EXTRACTS.   (From the Colonial Gazette June I, 1839.)     — The Limerick Chronicle says ,—" The Queen   will visit Ireland in August. This is announced   from unquestionable authority." — THE electors of Kilkenny being greatly dis-   satisfied with Mr. Hume's vote against Ministers   on the Janalea Bill, have passed resolutions calling him to account. In consequence the hon. member   has addressed a long letter to one of their body, in which he claims a right to judge for himself on all matters that come before him,--states that this is not the first time he has differed from his constituents, --and declares that he would have declined the office of their representative, had he known that any con- ditions fettering his judgment were annexed. -- A penny post throughout the Shetland Islands   is ordered to be established by Government.   IMPROVEMENT...

INVESTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 October 1839

INVESTMENTS. 11 (A single line of railway for horses six miles long and four feet wide.*) Land,-Expected to be granted by the Commis sioners. Surveying-Expected to be granted by the Com missioners. Earth Work, including Viaducts and Bridges. The ground is very level, and there are no streams to be crossed ; the only obstacles are two small gul lies, through which it is probable that water passe when heavy rains occur. The «oil is composed of good materials, and bass natural drainage, as is shewn by its affording a prac ticable road in its present deformed state. The earth work required, therefore, will be but little ; the ex pense, however, will be much enhanced by the high rate of labour. Considering that the road will be very narrow (for one line only), and that exact level is not necessary in a horse line, at all events that it will be better in the outset to construct a moderately good line at a low cost than to expend a large sum in the attainment of a degree of excellence corr...
