MR. SMITH'S SPEECH CONTINUED FROM THE FOURTH PAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 23 December 1845
MR. SMITH'S SPEECH CONTINUED FROM THE FOURTH PAGE. this statute has never been repealed, and is iKiw the law. If this should bo nctod on (and why should it not if good faith and in- tention are to be laid aside by tho Crown,) as I said before, thc new prim ls may be de- cided to be as bad us the old ones, until an Act of Council be passed to cure them. But, gentlemen, those same objections muy ope- rate against the interests of the Crown itself. In most of the grants reservations aro made. I The Crown may seek to resume what in good faith they would be entitled to ; bul the grantee says, " No ; 1 have been in posses- sion sixty years, and therefore, you cannot insist on your reservation ; the grants ore in foi nial." The shoe would then be on the other foot. The Crown would then, no doubt, hold up its hands in virtuous indignation,and would be astonished at such dishonesty on the part of the subject. Let mo not bo told thai this is a particular case. Gentlemen, the At- torney-Genera...

Thnt the death-knell of the system has been rung.' Never wns thc voice of popular fcelingso unequivocally and powerfully expres- sed in condemnation of thc system as nt the Public Meeting on Saturday last. Ueforc the third resolution was put by the Chair- man, Mr. T. Macdowell stepped forward to move nu amendment to that part of it which condemns thc Convict System.

THE PUBLIC MEETING. IN this day's publication we give a copious report of thc proceedings which took place at the meeting held on Saturday last, in the Victoria Theatre, for the purpose of pcti. tioniug the Queen and both ITouscs of I'nrlinment for Representative Government. We congratulate thc colony on the character and proceedings of that meeting; for in every respect it proved creditable to the community, and satisfactory ns a derron strntion of public opinion.

THE OBSERVER. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DEC. 26. OUR CUSTOMS' DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 26 December 1845
THE OBS_EIiVEE. HOBART TOWN, FRIDAY, DEC. 2(i. OUR CUSTOMS' UUTIKS. As thc time approaches when we may hope to see the Colonial Treasury escape the spo- liation of our Imperial Lords, we trust tlint his Excellency's attention will early bc di- rected to a new regulation of the Revenue. Thc important interests which have leen partially sacrificed to secure a sufficient supply may be spared when the colony is relieved from the expense of police and gaols. The ports of our colonies should be universally free, relieved from every charge which might discourage intercourse and contract adventure. The South Australian authorities thought fit to impose exorbitant demands, which might be borne by vessels freighted with thc fleece of Jason, but were ruinous to a trivial commerce. The conse- quence was the blockade of thc port, not by warlike interference, but thc not less power ful obstruction of insupportable exactions. Tlie partiality of the friends of Colonel Gawler has exhibited this poli...
