FRIDAY AUGUST 7Ta. Present-All the members. On the order of the day being read. - Mr. Carr desired to ask a few questions re lative to the proposed working of the Steam Dredge. His Excellency replied that as it would take. some considerable time to put the Steam Dredge together, it would be perhaps best to :postpone the question. INSOLVENT ORDINANCE. Mr. Carr moved that certain amendments be introduced into the Insolvent Ordinance. Mr. Steere seconded the motion. Mr. Carr said that the great expenses incurred under the operation of the present act were a source of dissatisfaction to the public, and that some alteration in the law of Insolvencies was a matter of imperative necessity. ~From the year 1865 to the year 1858 there had been twenty two cases of insolvency of which the total assets amounted to £6142 4s. 10d. against £3220 4s. 5d. for expenses.

CROWN AGENT. £5580.-A balance of £3625 in his hands. MuR. CARR thought it unfair to burden the colonial revenue with the travelling expenses of officials sent out here from England'. The Superintendent of Police had been directed to proceed forthwith per overland route, instead of waiting for a passage in one of the sailing vessels on the berth, and the expense, it appeared, was to be borne by the colony. His EXCELLENCY said that in conse iluence of Mi'. Hare together With Capt. Crioke and his familyhaving been directed to prbceed to this colony per overland route, he had addressed a very strong re monstrance to the Secretary of State and had pointed out that great expense might have been saved the colony had they,, (and his remarks particularly pointed to Capt.

His EXCELLEICY laid upon the table the Se cretary of State's Despatch with reference to an increase of £700 in the Governor's salary. Since 1852 the Colony had been freed from debt-the, population had advanced to the number of 21,000, the revenue was increasing yearly, and under these circumstances Her Majesty's go vernment had decided that the additional sum of £700 to the amount drawn from Imperial funds of £1,800,be defrayed by the Colonial Treasu-y. He (His Excellency) took it for granted that the Council would not raise any objection to the Secretary of State's Despatch. He desired to observe that in Tasmania a portion of the Go vernor's salary ha4 been paid from Colonial funds, and the other moiety from Convict funds. Supposing that the Secretary of State had adop ted a similar rule with respect to this Colony, it would have had to defray an annual charge ...
