WANT OF CAPITAL IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 February 1842
WANT OF CAPITAL IN NEW ZEALAND, Ton give full ffrect'.to the productive industry of New Zealand, however, loans for a long period would he required.

Hence, instead of a 3Banking Company, of which they' have- already two or three, they will require a Loan Company on an :ample scale, prepared to grant loans on the security of lands and stock, The suggestion' is thrown out 'in an article in the New Zealand Ganette, and we believe a better could not be made; Those. persons who have .pur. chased lands in the: first and second colonies, or' who. may intend :to. pur chase, have the strongest possible mo tive to promote 'a New Zealand Trust and Loan Company.; Unless they do so, every ...

LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 February 1842
LAW. The whole body of. English law'is divided into two kinds-the' common and the statute' law. The conimon law is founded entirely on custom, prece dent, and the decisions in the Courts of Justice. It is not founded on any Act of Parliament nor on any legislative enactment; it'is recorded in public documents. The only memorials of its existence are to to be found in the traditional maxims, records of pleas, books of reports, or the treatises of men eminent in the profession. |IL is evident, that laws originating and pre served in this manner must be vague, obscure, absurd and even contradict ory. The common law is in fact a mix ture of the opinions, absurdities, knowledge, and ignorance of every period of society ;: it has flowed down the: stream of time, accumulating: like soine mighty river; and carrying along vestiges of ,the learning, ignorance, folly, and wisdom.of every age:through which it passed., How unworthy such an incongruous mass must be of the present age, how dillicu...
