COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 14 March 1876

COMMERCIAL. MELBOURNE PRODUCE MARKET. Saturday Evening. Trade maintains its inactive condlition, all auimation having applrcintly deserted the markets for a time. In breadstutfs, though there is not much lsinecss passing, prices are steadily uphell, a point having been reached ibelorw whichi holders will not meet the market.

-Ir. JourI WHVaIrTEMAN, the gentleman rwho represents Emerald I-Till in the Assembly, and who also sets as Go vcernment whip, is evidently a person who has an eye to. what is popularly ternmed " the main chance." During the hearing of the case of KRitER v. SLoUs, at the VWarrnambool County Court, a few days since, it transpired tlhat this M[r. WVIIITEMAN was ipaid c£10 for obtaining a certificate for imlprove mints for a selector. When payment of menmbers became law in this colony, opinions were freel, expressed that the measure would bring to the front "men froom the ranksL," who would prove a credit to the colony, and that advanuccd legislatibn would be the order of the dlay. It was also confidently asserted that memubers of 'Parliament would be removcd fromn the temlptation of making use of their position . for the sake of personal aggrandisement. We need lhardly say that the.cexpe:ince gaiued by the working of the system has en tirely dissipated these wholesome ideas, and that p...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] THE NATIONAL REFORM LEAGUE OF VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 17 March 1876

[.ADI.:rTIsesM ErT.j IT IIE N A''lOi? AL REFORMi I LEAGU Ol VICTORIA. MANIFESTO. It is a fundamental principle of the English Constitution that representation should go with taxation. It is an in alienable light of a free people that they should make their osn laws. I'he people of this country live under a constitution which, swhile leas ini them comparatively free to elect their vwn representatives prac tically deprives their representatives of all legislative power. The Legislative Assembly, which is elected by the whole people, is constantly obstructed by the Legislative Council, which reoresents only a portion of the community, thet portion being the propertied cliss. Legislative action on the part of the people has, there fore, become a nullity, and self-govern ment a sham. In every civilized country in the world a land tax is one of the chief sources of revenue lor the State. In a country like this, where the State out of the general revenue grants large annual subsides in aid...

THE CUNARD LINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Colac Herald — 17 March 1876

The London correspondent of the Auck land Southern. Cross writes :-" A little volume published by the Cunard Company, and descriptive of their steamers, supplies some very cnrious information; I.t sounds strange enough, for example, that the first mail steamer (the Brittania) that ever sailed between this country aud the United States did so so lately as the year 1840. Three other steamers were built by the company, consisting of Sir (then Mr.) Samuel Cunard, of Halifax, Nova Scotia; Messrs. Burns, of Glasgow; and Messrs. M'Ivor, of Liverpool, at the same date, and from these four sprang the present forty nine vessels that are very fitly terused the Cunard Fleet. The Brittania left Liverpool on the 4th of July, 1840, and reached Boston in fourteen days eight hours-even for these days a good passage. IHer arrival, marking as it did an epoch in international communication, was welcomed with great public enthusiasm, and it may be added, with private enthusiasm also, since it is stated ...

TuH institution of Parliament, together with our system of Representative and Responsible Government, have never previouslyin the history of this country, or we doubt in that of any other, been brought to such a depth of social demo ralisation, and political degradation, as under the present sregime of the M'CULLOCII Ministry. There is the scandal of the Premier having taken the leading part in deposing both the KrsFERD and the 3EERtY Ministries, and then adopting their estimates and coming down with an adulterated com pound of their respective policies. There is the treason to the people, or less majesty, of the Premier having entered into a conspiracy with the members of the KEIFERD s n inistry that he defeated, Messrs. KERFEIED, GILLIES, and RAMSAY, and his "forty followers" in fact, to postpone inde finitely Constitutional Reform, a- Min ing on Private Property Bill, Electoral Reform, and all other needful reforms, for the want of which the country is languishing, and to keep Mr...
