THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 25th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 November 1840

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER, 25th. 1840. We this day publish a correspondence that has lately taken place between Mr. Andrews and the Local Government on the subject of location du ties, and a most curious and interesting, corres pondence it is. Our object in publishing it is to shew that there is really no fixed principle, in or dering the location duties ; that the Governor does not himself seem to know what he requires to be done on the land.- Although the argument of one ' invariable practice' has been always held to the settler claiming redress of grievances, the correspondence shews that the practice has been anything but invariable, — that the government has lost all right opportunity of jndgmg by pre cedent, and that each individual case is disposed of by the application of wavering rules, fixed for the occasion by the opinion of His Excellency the Governor. It is perfectly true that a practice, in direct opposition to the several agreements un der which the settlers hold land, has b...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 2nd. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 2 December 1840

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 2nd. 1840. The very admirable letter that appears in this . doya journal signed ' Sifter/' comes appropriate ly enough when the threatened rise in the price ... of Crown land is being discussed by the public It is possible that out Correspondent's views may be erroneous, and hjs calculations incorrect, but we at least can detect no flaw therein. It will be seen that he writes on the assumption that ' Downing Street' folly has reached its height in raising the price to 12s. per acre, and if even at this his results are sufficiently startling, what would they have been had they proceeded from a calculation of the first outlay on land at 1/. per acre. A profit of 82. per cent is allowed to ' a Small Farmer,' with land at 12s. per acre, in 1840, by reason of the high price T-f mutton and pther favourable circumstances ; but with land at 17, the profits even in that year, would be some thing like those prognosticated for him by Sifter in 1850, which present comfortabl...

THE INQUIRER WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, 16th. 1840. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 16 December 1840

WEDNESDAY DECEMBER, letk. 1840. Our readers wilt observe in this day's journal a letter from Mr Smithies on the subject, of Mar riages to be pel formed by persons of the Wesley - an denomination, and as the question has lately excited much interest among the settlers we shall make a few remarks upon it. With regard to Mr Smithies' letter, if his case had been bad before, it is scarcely improved there by ; the Governor's opinion, with most indus trious caution, is confined to the question of li cense or no license, and the larger principle ie, perhaps wisely, carefully kept out of sight. We are inclined to speak out more boldly, and to say at once that Mr Smithies can ' celebrate the rite of marriage' in this colony, not as he seems to infer, by reason of any power given to him by '* the new marriage act,' still less by the autho rity of any ' ecclesiastical law,' but because as the law at present stands in this colony, there is nothing to prevent any persons whatever from performing...
