THE HON. J. BRIGHT ON PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

THE HON. J. BRIGHT ON PROTECTION. The following letter from Mr. John Bright, M.P., has been received by Mr. Cyrus Field, of New York : — ' One Ash, Rochdale, '21st January, 1879. ' My dear Mr. Field, — I never write for reviews or any other periodicals. It is so long since I have written that my hand has lost its cunning, it it ever had it. I do not think anything an Englishman could say would have any eflect upon an American protectionist. The man who possesses a monopoly liy which he thinks he gains is not open to argument. It was so in this country forty years ago, and it is so with you now. It is strange that a people who put down slavery at an immense sacrifice are not able to suppress mono poly, which is but a milder form of the same evil. Under slavery the man was seized nnd his labour was stolen from him, and the profit of it enjoyed by his master and owner. Under protection the man is apparently free, bat he is denied the right to exchange the produce of his labour except w...

THE GUMLY RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

THE GUMLY RESERVE. In' the Assembly, on Wednesday, Mr. MElhone moved, — 'Tliat in the opinion of this House, the decision of various Ministers for Lauds allowing Mr Donnelly to purchase 490 acres ont o£ the reserve, or common, at Wagga Wagga (dedicated as, a common, and vested in trustees) is wrong, and that such dnr.iRinn n 1 1 n vvi 11 rr \fr. Dnnnellv i it rmr^linso the said land should be revoked, as such decision is injurious to the interests of the people of Wagga Wagga and the people of the colony, as it forms a had precedent for other Ministers.' In the first place he would state that the Minister for Lands had acted illegally in carrying out the decision of his predecessors. The simple fact of the land having been dedicated took it out of the power of any Minister to grant to Mr. Don nelly leave to purchase or select half an acre or any portion of it. It it was purposed to grant such leave, care should have been taken to do away with the dedication of the reserve. If the Mi...

It was scarcely to be expccted tliat is such a crowd of higli-claas competitors a prize should fall to Mr. M'lintyrca share, but tho evident appreciation of his effort® as a breeder evinced at tlie sales, is a matter upon which we can fairly congratulate him, aiul consider that this is in itself n sufficient compensation to him for his pluck iu facing so many lions of the stock-breeding world.

Most renders of the local journals, -who take any interest in the Wagga Hos pital, will doubtless agree that the unpleasant revelations connected with what is known in the history of tbo institution as the Gapel enquiry, were best buried in the past. At the very least, it will be admitted that the only justification possible for keeping their memory green lies in their capability to act as a sa-l warning, aud a helpful j guide to a course of management ! reasonably free from any peg on which to hang complaint With that remark able jjerversity which formed the pre vailing characteristic of their year of office, the outgoing Committee, how ever, have, it is plain to see, arrived at other conclusions. As a consequence, we liave the annual report of the Hos pital presented by them at the meeting of Tuesday last, affording painful evi dence that just as they have done little, they have learned little ; and that they are destitute of even that common prudence by which most- men are prompt...

PARLIAMENTARY PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

Parliamentary Privilege. If the Lords aud Commons of Eng land can and do dispense with the privileges of their order, and sufficiently protect themselves by their own inhe rent dignity, what earthly necessity can there be for our little Parliament to crave so eagerly for powers, ostensibly for self protection, which the great Parliament of England has disdainfully passed into oblivion long years ago. If our Legislative Assembly desires to command the respect of the people, let it begin by respecting itself. Let there be less rowdyism, less vulgarity, and above all less displayed ignorance, and in their places more temperance, more courtesy, and generally such language and conduct both inside and outside the House as befit the high aud honorable position of a representative of the sove reign people. Then honorable members will find no need for stringent laws to form an artificial barrier to hedge round their diguity, then the Press and the people, whose voice it is, will refer to res...

THE LAND SYSTEM AND AGRICULTURAL SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 26 April 1879

The Land System and Agricultural Settlement. Mr. Garrett, in his defence of the existing land system the other night, made some observations in reply to a charge that it had failed to settle an agricultural population on the public estate. Without giving figures, he made the general assertion that agri culture had increased, and that the nt.w agricultural areas being taken up by free selectors at Carcoar, Orange, Cootamundra, Tamworth, Armidale, and other places were practically addi tions to the land under cultivation, although, they only took the place of the lands in the old settled districts, where the growth of wheat had to be discontinued owing to the spread of rust. There is no doubt that some new land taken up by the free selectors has been cultivated, and it is a fact that there has been an absolute increase in the acreage under cultivation since the Land Act of 1861 came into operation. It would have been strange, indeed, if there had not. with tl:e growing requirements of...
