A Government Newspaper. IN the the Assembly on Thursday last the Premier, in reply to Mr Hollis asking whether the Government during the recesss " would consider the advisability of bringing out a State daily newspaper, so as to give the people a pure and unadulterated news supply," said the Government were now seriously considering the desirableness of doing away with the brutality of the morning newspapers, who are continually trying to suppress public opinion by medium of a state organ. He did not know of any more inter. esting publication that we could use for that purpose than the "Government Gazette," by its conversion into a daily newspaper, giving any heon. member who likes to write a letter the right of doing so, and publishing it free and also making the cost of advertising us cheap as possible, especially the births, deaths, and marriages, and the electioneer.
