THE OBSERVER. IIOItAUT TOWN, TUESDAY, DHC. Iß. TO HIS KXCKLLKXCY SIR KARU LKY WILMOT.

Our sole protection is comprehended in thc zeal and fidelity of the press, and wc pardon its occasional ex- cesses on account of its utility. May your Excellency prove cqunlly indulgent.

THE GOVERNOR'S CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 December 1845
THE GOVERNOR'S CIRCULAR. " Stop you-a wort! or two before you go ! We've done the state some service, and they know't. No more of that I pray you, in your letters, When you shnll these untoward deeds relate. Speak of usas wc are; nothing extenuate, Nor set down aught in malice." 1 FOR the last month past considerable curio sity lins prevailed to know the parties whom his Excellency might succeed in obtaining as substitutes for thc ex-members, and also the terms or understanding on which their seats were offered and accepted. Hitherto we have had nothing but vague conjecture or indefinite surmise; until nt length, the desired information, so far nt lenst ns re- gards the terms on which the vacant seats were offered, has been promulgated, in the following circular, which came to light in the Cornwall Chronicle of Wednesday last : GoVF.IlNMr.NT IIouSK,-IS li).

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 December 1845
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. I ON proroguing tho Council of Western Australia, Governor Hutt, who is nbout to retire, was presented with nu nddrcss ap- proving of his administration. From the Adelaide papers we further extract thc fol- lowing news respecting Western Australia. Those well-known colonists, George Leake, Esq., Lionel Samson, Esq., nnd W. ll. Andrews, Esq, had consented to act ns a provisional committee in the institution of a new bank, to be called " Thc Commer- cial Bank," nnd intended to fill up the void occasioned by the withdrawal of the branch of the Australasian Bank. The number of vines planted in various parts of Western Australia was stated to be quite equal to 300,000 ; and thc samples of dry and sweet wines, and raisins, pro- duced, not only afforded general satisfac- tion, hut Governor Hutt, who was iu the chair (probably for thc last time), compli- mented thc Society on thc more than reali- zation of their first expectations. Thc cultivation of the olive seems to ha...

In thc evening sitting, on thc rending the order of thc day fur going into committee of supply, Mr. Ewart called the attention of thc House to the reports of thc Inspectors on Education appointed by the Privy Council, aud in so doing, suggested that, ns tho army, navy, and ordnance estimates were always introduced to the notice of Par- liament by a speech from the Minister to whose department they belonged, thc same practice should be ndoptcd with regard to those estimates which referred to such edu- cational establishments as were supported .wholly or partially by Parliamentary grants.

Letters were received in the early part of tho week in Liverpool, from Lima to the 1 Ot lt of May, brought overland aeioss tho Isthmus of Panama, ami forwarded to this country hy the West India mail. It will ho remembered that the Peruvian port nf Arica was bombarded by the English steam frigate Cormorant, in August, 1S4-I, in consequence ol' a quarrel originating in a gross insult to the British Consul at Taona, inflicted on bim by some of the military partisans of the Go- vernment which lias jusc succeeded in placing itself in power under tho lead of General Castilla. Tho British Government, however, is not nt all satisfied with this reparation, and il has sent a formal demand for redress, und for the removal of the officers who were guilty of the original outrage, to the Peru- vian Government. At first it waa not ex- pected that Government would grant the redress, and it was therefore feared that Cal loa, the port of Lima, would be blockaded, if not bombarded, by thc English squa...

TAXATION BY REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 December 1845
TAXATION HY REPRESENTATION-. HAVING held back from offering our own opinion on this knotty point, we have no hesitation in confessing where it is that our difficulty lies. It is occasioned by the pas- sage which wc have quoted above, by thc particular wording of that section which empowers the Crown to erect a temporary Government, and to give to it the right and authority of making all " such laws and or- dinances as may be requisite for good go- vernment." Now, ns Englishmen, the sons of men who have been taxed from genera- tion to generation, and "ns it were to the manner born," wc are altogether incapable of conceiving the abstract idea of " good government, or indeed, of any government at nil, existing without taxation. Fire and smoke are not more correlative. True it is, with our birthright of being taxed, wc are endowed with thc equally inherent privilege of grumbling nt taxes, and of calling them necessary evils ; and here again is proof of the inveteracy of this usc ; we ne...
