THE RIGHT OF COMMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

THE EIGHT OP COMMENT. We make no apology for again com menting on die position taken by bis Excellency die Governor with regard to die resolutions which he has been pleased Bummarily to reject. From time to time disputes upon social and political subjects arise, die settlement of which may affect interests as yet uncreated — generations yet unborn. Of the former, an instance is had in ' the war jof the guages,' as it has been facetiously termed, though to no small extent a political feature has from circumstances been engrafted upon it Of die latter class is die dis pute — the subject of this article — between the Governor on die one hand and the people of Brisbane and die co lony generally on the other. We ad dress ourselves to tiiis subject again, particularly on account of the great importance with which it is fraught to all of as. The dispute most end in the rejection or recognition of a great fundamental principle of the consti tution ; and as its rejection would in volve no sm...

PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

PROYINCIAL GOTERNMENT. We are aware diat one objection brought against the system of local administration, advocated in this journal, is, that it will tend to petty jobbery, and the consequent undue aggrandisement of personal interests. To this the reply is easy. There is no system of government to which a like objection cannot be brought, for it simply amounts to this, dtat die holders of power are apt to consider their own advantage in preference to that of the multitude, whom they are supposed to represent. But experience will prove to us diat, even admitting the force of the objection, die evil is accompanied by a far greater amount of good. ' The condition of our nature,' says Burke, ' is such that we buy our ' blessings at a price.' In this case we have to consider whether die blessing If we consider the manner in which ' . | the great bulk of the proceeds of ; English taxation is employed, we shall m find that it is entrusted to local ad- 1 ministration. The poor rates, the 1...
