COLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 31 March 1864
COLONIAL NEWS. NEW SOUTH WALES. The way in which politicians act in respect to the censorship of the Press is often a very good index to their characters. Sit ting; as judges in their own cause, the more excitable and dogmatic are apt to boil over with indignation at any depreciatoiy cora uients that may be made upon theirspeeches or actions ; the calmer and more philoso phical are able to revise their ova impres siniw in tlie lin-lit of hostile criticism. ' Where there is smoke there must be fire,' savs an old proverb, and when a public man finds that there is a large agreement irith hostile criticism on himself, he wilt do well, instead of fretting in a rope, to reconsider whether, after all, the critic may not per haps be at leist partly right. A curious illustration of this has recently occurred in England, which may be worth alluding to as an instructive example to some of our colouial politicians. Mr. W. J. Lindsay, M.P , iu writing to the 7Vrn«, says : — ' I always read the T...

The return is copied from the Queensland Times, which appears to be specially privileged, in obtaining possession of an approximate docu ment, at a time when the depart ment from which it should come to the public, is not prepared to issue any re turn as authentic. Such being the state of the case, the document must for the present rest on the authority of our contemporary j but seeing that it is a return of the population in Electorates —and remembering our contemporary's connection and inspiration — it is not difficult to believe that it is a copy of one of those official approximates fur nished to a Cabinet, to enable it to prepare its programme for a coming campaign.
