THE COLONIAL NEWSPAPER PRESS, We take the following from the Oedong\ Chronicle of the 26th October :— t We cannot help thinking that like man; other enterprises in the colony, the newspaper press has been overdone. The tendency of the j colonists is to run to extremes. There is too ( much legislation, too many merchant traden JJ and ' others,' to many lawyers, too many doc tors, and too many— no, we will not say too many clergymeD, although perhaps if we had. fewer in number and of a more improved quality, it would be desirable ; but among those things we have too many of, we may very safely assert we have too many newspapers, and from this circumstance alone is to be attributed the too many evils we suffer from. In Melbourne, with a population of eighty thousand people, whioh includes men, women, children and babies, we have three daily newspapers, with twioe or three times as many Saturday publications ; while in Geelong, with just twenty thousand inhabitant!, we havo one daily an...
