The Inquirer & Commercial News. Quid verum atque decens, curo et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 November 1856

QtMveramatqw:deoens,caToaroffo.etomnUinliocston WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 5, 1856. Tee principal benefits which we shall derive from a reduction in the price of land are, first, the encouragement given to small ca pitalists to settle on the land, by which a great impetus would be given to agriculture; second, that emigrants would be induced to select this colony, and remain in it after they arrive ; and thirdly, that the colonial revenue would be materially augmented, and we should possess, what we have not hither to possessed, a fund applicable to emigration purposes or for the prosecution of public works. The chief difficulties to be apprehended, and objections which will probably be raised seem to be, first, that a sudden and consider able alteration in price would seriously affect the private holder, who has hitherto been the successful competitor with the Govern ment; and secondly, that the welfare of the whole squatting interest would be imperil led, by so diminishing the price of l...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 5 November 1856

Sort. We did not receive any report of proceed ings in the district during the recent fair, but hear from all quarters that everything passed off well. The show of stock was equal to that of preceding years. At the meeting of the Society, Mr S. Burges in the chair, a letter was read from the Rev. Mr Lowe, stating that he had discovered limestone in the district, that it had been burnt, and was pronounced to be excellent lime. The following report and account of subsequent proceedings is taken from our contemporary: — In presenting to your nctice the Annual Report of this Society, the Committee begs to congratulate the members upon a continuation of general pros perity in this district. Tho determination of the settlers to meet the ?wants of the colony, has, by. increasing the supply, tended to reduce the prices of almost all kinds of farm produce; the reduction in the price of corn has caused a slight disinclination to clear new lands, particularly under short leases with no allowan...

To the Editor of the Inquirer and Commercial New. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 November 1856

To ike Editor cftke Inquirer and Commercial News. SIB, — As many people appear to be un der the impression that the whole of the land in the Northern district is taken up in squatting stations, and consequently no land available for corn growing to be purchased, if they take a glance at the map they will find one of the Grenough flats, known as the Walkaway Flat, about 12 miles in length and from 1 to 1^ miles in width, which is in class A, and open to- be purchased at any time ; the whole of which is as good corn hud as is in the colony, and almost perfectly clear, there being scarcely a tree or bush on it. This I think would be quite sufficient to meet all the requirements of our, popu lation at present. Yours, See., OS£ WHO IB ACQUAINTED WITH THE COtnSTBY.

Extracts from Macaulay's History of England. THE BEAUTIES OF KERRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 November 1856

Extracts from Mocai— ay's History '^.England THE .BEAUTIES OF KERRT. The sooth-western part of Kerry. is now well knowu as the most beautiful part in the British Isles. The mountains, die glens, the capes stretching _r into the Atlantic, the craigs on which the eagles boild, the riva lets brawling down rocky passes, the lakes everhung by groves, in which, the wild deer find covert, attract every finaamer crowds of wanderers, sated with tb.0 business and the pleasures of great cities. The beauties of that country are, indeed, too often bidden in the mist and rain, which the west wind brings up from a boundless ocean. But, on the rare days, when the sun shines out in all his glory, the landscape has a Freshness and a warmth of colouring seldom Found in our latitude. The myrtle loves the soil ; the arbutus thrives better than even on the soany shore of Calabria; the tnrf is. of lovelier hue than, elsewhere; die hills glow with a richer purple; the varnish pf the holly and ivy is more g...
