Colonial Policy. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 February 1829

Colonial Policy. K_,", ' ^ ' , The appointment of a Committee in England to enquire i into the state of the civil government of the Cañadas) on the' recommendation of His Majesty's Minjsters, forms an im I portant, and, we trust, a most gratifying era in our Colonial policy. When any one branch of this system is brought dis- tinctly under the notice and review of a body of English Gen- tlemen, we cannot believe an effectual remedy will be delayed. From the strife of war, and from the numberless combats of domestic interests which succeeded the return of peace/' it is too true that our Colonies have experienced great neglect. The case made out by Mr. Huskisson, though honorable to his own laborious exertion and great talents, is a bitter cen- sure, not only on his predecessors in office, but on the British public, who have supinely allowed bad laws, and consequently abad government to go on, until roused from their slumbers by every thing short of open violence. The remedy, however, ...

Dreadful Murders. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 February 1829

~~~ t Dreadful Murders. j On Friday last, a most cruel and barbarous murder was paipetrated by a mau named John Leacff, a boút-buildér, re-j siding m Collins-street, near the Wharf, upon his wife. It appeals, that the cause of this sanguinary deed originated, a¡¡ 'is the oaseuine times out of ten, from the baneful influence of inebriety. From the evidence collected on the Inques(t, if "seems the parties were incessantly at variance, having for years back lived an unceasing lrfeof strife and quarrel. It whs declared in evidence, that Leach and his wife were evi-1 dently upon the most amicable terms just previously to the fatal act Whilst lying on the bed together, with a neighbour in company, he said to his wife-" Come, girl, shall we have a gill togcthci ."-it was instantly procured, as als.o a second : which proved the destruction of that life he was evidently bent upon destroyiug. Scarcely had the neighbour quitted the house, when the screams of the deceased reached her eai s. Thi...

Kangaroo Skins. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 February 1829

Kangaroo Skins. A Government Notice was inserted m the Sydney Gazette of the 17th ult, announcing, " that the doty on the importation into Great BrUnin of kangaroo skins has, by a late Act of Par- liament, bçen reduced trom 20 per cent, to 5 per cent ad va- lorem " How far this may be an acquisition to our Colonial Com- merce, we are at a loss to decide, trom the, fact that the last accounts of the prices of kangaroo skins from home previously to the reduction of the ad valorem duties from 20 to 5 per cent were very unfavourable and discouraging. Upon a per- sonal advantage accruing to the Colony, and improvement of Colonial manufacture, we do not advpcate the destruction of/ the kangaroo, for the sake ot exporting the skins Our opinions uppn the subject ot the kangaroo seem to coincide with the remarks m tho Courier last week, which we here insert " We have so frequently inveighed against the wanton slaughter of kanguroos, that again to mention Jue1 subject may appear tiresome.

New Australian Settlement, SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 20 February 1829

New Australian Settlement, SWAN RIVER. We are this day enabled to state, that Government have it in contemplation to found another settlement on the coast of New Holland. A spot reported eligible for such a purpose has been pointed out, and their attention has been so particu larly called to the advantages which it presents, that the Cro- codile, commanded by Captain J. W. MONTAGU, is forthwith to proceed for the purpose of examining more minutely the facilities which it offers for colonization, than has yet been done ; and, in the event of the result being satisfactory, it is proposed to establish a body of settlers there with the least possible delay. It is about a year ago, as we are informed, since the Rainbow,   Captain Stirling, was sent down to Sydney, as a ship is   annually, from Trincoraalee, or Madras, to the capital of New South Wales, when the Captain, keeping close to the coast,   discovered an unknown river, apparently running some dis- tance...

White Clover. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 27 February 1829

r- I 'White Clover.

The origin of this luxurious herbage was the pllspriog of only a handful of seed, thrown carelessly bv an individual over a piece of land , which was extended hythe excrescence of the cattle that first fed upon it. The manifold advantages of thf growth of this grass bus been already pro- ved by the feeding of stock, that has turned out equal to stall-fed beasts. One Settler alone, on the other side of the country, has this season scattered ovei his runs not less than 500 lbs, pf this seed, having 4,000 ames pf land. |We strongly ...
