THE GOVERNMENT OUGHT CAREFULLY TO AVOID EVERY THING CAPABLE OF DISCOURAGINO THE HUSBANDMAN, OR OF, DIVERTING HIM FROM THE LABOURS OF AGRICULTURE. vatlel. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 24 August 1827

THE GOVERNMENT OUG«T CAREFULLY TO AVOID EVERY THING/ CAPABLE OF »IS COURAGINO THE HUSBANDMAN, OR OF, DIVERTING IHN FROM TUE LABOURS OF AGRICULTURE. Fatlel. It is generally understood that the Legis- lative Council are about to, sit for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of raising the duty on Colonial-made -spirits. It appears the ideáis entertained, foolishly enough, that the encouragement to Colonial Distillution will rob the Revenue, on the ground that where a gallon of home spirits, which pays but %$. 6d. duty, would be con- sumed, a gallon of foreign or imported spirits, which pays from 6s. to 7s. 6d. would be used by the Colonists instead. But this argu- ment is most vague and sophistical, and will not bear supporting-because every one with a grain of sense must be aware, that what would be lost in such a case in the rate of the duty, would be more than amply remune- rated in the quantity consumed. The best refutation we eau ofièr to the opinion enter- tain...

Colonial Times HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 1827. Dispatches have reached His Excellency Lieutenant Governor ARTHUR, by the Persian transport, from Lord BATHURST, containing among other things, as it has been stated to us by the "well-informed," instructions im-   mediately to carry into effect certain plans proposed for the institution of an ORPHAN SCHOOL. AS far as we can learn, and our in- formation carries with it the appearance of feasibility, the plans proposed are. First, that the Orphan School shall be established, on an extensive and liberal principle, forth- with. Secondly, that the Government cattle at Ross Bridge shall be sold, and the pro- ceeds laid out in sheep, for the purpose of forming a Fund, to be devoted exclusively to the benefit of the children. Thirdly, that the Auction Duties, which have so long been de- voted to the purposes of the Colonial Fund, shall be immediately payable to the Orphan School Fund. Fourthly, that proper and sufficient bui...

THE MONEY MARKET. City, Saturday, 14th April. Mr. Canning and the character of the Ad- ministration about to be formed by bira, haye furnished a most animating topic to-day iu the city, awd the Exchange has been con- stantly thronged with, inquirers, eager to col- lect authentic intelligence from the Court end of the town. The first point which all; parties have been anxious to establish is, whether the Minister is in possession of the King's cordial support, and whether he isl likely to form «uch an Administration as will secure the confidence of the country, and. maintain its ground against the high afisto craticsl party now avowedly opposed to it. It is understood here, that in the interview Mr. Canning had with the KiKGg in which he delivered to His Majesty the resignation of his late colleagues, some very unequivocal de- monstrations were afforded ofthe effect pro- duced by that event on the King's mind.?It has been roused, it is said, to a degree of energy and firmness) for wh...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN:   FRIDAY, AUGUST 31, 1827.   From Sydney, we have English news of a few days later date than had before reach- ed the Colony. As might be expected, the change in the Administration forms the prin- cipal topic. In another place, we have given very copious extracts from the London   journals, from which it is no more than rea- sonable to expect we alone can draw our inferences. Our Readers will therefore be enabled to judge of our views, by what we, have the pleasure to lay before them. It is very evident that His Majesty has had a most trying moment - he has been placed in the most delicate situation possible ; and his con- duct has fully evinced, that he is a true son of the House of Brunswick. Had he acted otherwise than he has done, the glory of the Crown of England would have been lost, and he would have heen sunk below the horizon. Had he permitted his late factious Ministers   to bias him - to dict...

The debates in the Housp of Commons, relitive to the sale of the Church Reserve (held upou the same principle as in P»ew South Wales and Van Diem^r.'s land) in Upper Canada, first gave rise to the subject, and the ap- pliance of the remaiks or the Membeis of tïte House to these Colonies, only substi- tuting another name for Canada, make i.t seem that the debate alluded to was ex- pressly on the one or the other.
