Wednesday, October 15 [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 October 1856

Wednesday, October IS, The Supplementary Estimates passed the third reading. The Bill to adopt an English Act ' to amend the law relating to Bills of Lading' passed the second reading, and the third reading was fixed for Thurs day, 16th inst. The Conncil went into committee on the second reading of ** a Bill to empower the Governor of West ern Australia to purchase certain certificates of re mission in the pi ice of Crown Lands' After the first clause had been read by the Clerk, Mb CLIFTON said that he was opposed to the Bill, not from any desire to impede its progress, or to act in the slightest degree against the Church, but because he thought the original intention of the donors was defeated by the bill, that intention being to endow the see with a grant of land. Waving, however, this objection, he thought it would not be beneficial to the Government or the see, for though the land was bought nominally at IOs, yet when the rate of interest was added, of course, that amount would ...

No 2, A Bill for giving relief to Insolvent persons, and providing for the due collec tion, admuiistration, and distribution of Insolvent Estates in Western Australia, and for the prevention of frauds affectina the same. The GOVERNOR, in moving the second reading, said the measures were introduced in deference to public opinion, and that the Bills were drawn with care and skill, and he entreated for them a calm and careful consideration. Uc was of opinion that any complicated system of Bankruptcy or Insolvency Laws was unsuited and impossible in the present condition of the colony, and what was required was a more simple enactment for the punishment of fraudulent debtors, and he would also add, greater caution i...

The stations at Fremantle have been broken ap, and a party from Mr Bateman's establishment have pro ceeded to the Vasse to make an attempt in that quarter. ? ♦ ? It is said that there is some prospect of evidence being taken before the Customs Board on the part of those interested in the Perth and inland trade. We hope such may be the case, as the proposed alterations would involve many conside rations of apecaniary nature affecting these traders. Independently of this, the adoption of each a course would have the effect perhaps of tendering clear that which is at present obscure, and of removing some miGConceDtaons, which might otherwise exist on either 6ide.

Thursday, October 26, The Bill for adopting an Imperial Act relative to Bills of Lading was read a third time.

If we ought not to anticipate from the non official members of Council any very extra ordinary display of wisdom, we have at least aright to expect that we should be spared any very glaring exhibitions of imbecility. We have aright to expect on the part of those erentlemen. if thev have not sufficient capacity to make the Council an object of respect at home or abroad, that at all events they will cease their endeavours to make it appear contemptible. Judging from the proceedings at the termination of the active session of Council, we fear that our reasonable hopes are likely to be frus trated. In the course of a discussion upon a sub ject which was initiated and has been con tinually advocated by the Press of this co lony, the amendment of the land regulations, it was thought necessary by two members to digress somewhat from the question un der conside...

Friday, Oct. 17. 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 22 October 1856

Friday. Oct. 17. 1856. The Council resumed their sitting in Committee on the Insolvent BilL Clause 79, in compliance with an objection made on the part of the Western Austra lian Bank, was altered by leaving out the lines which require that cheques signed by the Official Assignee should truly express the name of the person in whose favour it was drawn. At this stage the Advocate General objected that there was no punishment for an insolvent making a fraudulent preference, while the re cipient was heavily punished. It was decided that the insolvent was sufficiently punished by withhold ing his certificate. Clause 94 was altered at the in stance of the Advocate General to die effect that the certificate did not discharge die insolvent from dama ges previously recovered tor seduction, adultery, or defamation. A suspending clause was added, Mr Stone called His Honor's attention to clause 35, which allowed no exception in favour of judgment creditors, which was an important omission, as ...

The proceedings of the Council have been on the whole satisfactory ; and had it not been for the indiscretion of His Excellency's well-meaning but injudicious friends, we should have had the gratifying task of re viewing the brief session without employing the language of censure. Unfortunately the injudicious conduct referred to above com pelled us last week, much against our in clination, to delay the consideration of a question of colonial importance, and to oc cupy that space in defending the public and ourselves, . and in administering reproof to the guilty parties, which, would otherwise have been devoted to the discussion of the proposed changes in our land system. We now gladly approach a subject which has always engaged the attention of this journal, and which has now become a matter of more general interest than heretofore.

Jfocat mid gemestic Jutctliacucc. It is said that Mr Crane is to have a license for the ' Cricketer's Arms.' We are glad to hear it, for he has been at much expense in making his house adapted for the accommodation of the pub lic, and must have of late suffered from extreme anxiety on account of the precarious position in which his property was placed. While, however, we cannot avoid expressing our satisfaction at this concession in Mr Crane's favour, we cannot help asking of what value is now the statement that the late crusade was ' not against the man, but against the house ?' ? ?♦ ? .We regret to hear that Mr Brakes has been un able to launch his fine vessel, just completed, in consequence of a sand bar having formed in the spot where, when the vessel was first laid down, there was about 14 feet water. This sand bar, it is said, has been caused by the construction of the breakwater built a year or two since, as there have been continual deposits from that time to the presentfmom...
