' The resolutions of Mr. J. Stewart, affirming the desirability of repealing the Newspaper Postage Act, were ordered to be restored to the paper for this day. The HBouse went into committee of supply. On the vote of £11,957 for the department of lands being proposed, Mr. J. Stewart called attention to the fact that the survey of land cost the country £97,000 a year, whilst the revenue was only £541,000 per annum, making the cost of survey nearly twenty per cent. of the collection. It was the most expensive and extravagant establishment of the government, and at the same time the least efficient and the least satisfactory in every respect.

CLEVER CAPTURE. -- On= Wednesday night last, as we have beeninfornmed oni what we believe to'l e very reliable authoiity,' a remarkably clever capture of two men who were' ".wanted," was effected near Tarcutta by ,Mr. Inspector' Singleton. One of the, men is, w. understand, named O'Connor, and it is whispered about, we do" not know' with :what truth, that he owes his arrest to, some rather. seriousinfractionsof the Treason Felony Act.:_ This'may or may not be true, but certain it is that his arrest was-very eariestly desired by the police., Mr Single ton, doubtless guided by that wonderful as sistant of the force " information received,?:' :when alone in the bush and at some distance from the road, had-reason to believe that the object of his 'search was not very far distant.

REDUCTION OF THE PRICE OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age — 18 February 1869
,BEDUCTION,' OF TH`EE .'PRICE OF LAND. (From the Empire.) Tim reduction of the price of land has been advocated. for some time past by not a few speakers and writers in this colony. There is, no, doubt, a large, proportion of the waste 'lands which is iiot likely for many genera tions to be worth so much as the fourth part of a pound an acre. And there is much land of qualities' varying between a shilling and a pound in value. Many, therefore, it is supposed, would invest capital in the purchase and improvement of second and third class land, if the price were reduced to .a reasonable rate. If reliable assurance could be given that the lands would be classified fairly, honestly,' and strictly accord ing to their true value, without any class influences being allowed to interfere, it would be well to sell the inferior kinds under suitable conditions for what they would fetch. But a reduction' in price would inevitably be. taken advantage of by land speculators for the purpose of taki...
