&í\c igofortou ítXcvtut». MONDAY MOANING. 14TH MAY, 1S55. OÎO: of the clauses of the licensing act, iii giving power to the whole-, sale dealer to vend'any quantity abo\c seven quarts, goes very far towacds con- founding the two classes in one. It appears that the whole animus of the act is imbued with acerbity and venom against the licensed victuallers. Hestrictioa upon restriction, and snare upon snare; and, in addition, the most respcciable portion of their business is thus thrown open lo competition: thus attempting, step by step, as it were, to make this occupation so onerous that they may be driven to cast it off altogether. But the truly degrading feature of this 1' act» and of many another usage of govern- ment, is the bribe held out to the dregs of society to become informers. Does the legislature imagine-that if any mau of common honesty of miad participated with a publican in violating one of the enactments of this act, that he could be induced to become informer?...

THE "COLONIAL TIMES" AND A SHAM DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 13 May 1855

THE "COLONIAL TIMES" AND A SHAM DEMOCRACY. THERE is in the Times of Friday morn- ing, a vci y amusing essay on the rise of good government out of bad, in which the wiiter very deliberately turns round qt the end of his îcflcctioiis- ia older, to bite his own tail. Ile fust eulogizes the very mar- vellous aptitude which "peoples "'have 6o often exhibited-in their attempt to gain their natural claim, vi/-, that of self government by their Representatives: a veiy original remark without doubt : and then, as a corollary to his proposition, he falls foul, toojt and nail, on sonic un- named " sham democrats " for their recent attack upon Sir Henry Young, who, ac- cording to the reasoning of this writer^ must be good because he is new. He ven- tures al^o to tell us, be the Governor who he might, be would come armed and deter mined to extinguish "(he unnatural and iminoinl condition of things" which he leaves us to infer has been caused by Sir William Dcnison's system of farouiilism.
