It had been the custom to estimate, the expenditure and balance it by an imaginary revenue, but those days were, he hoped, gone bye.

Administration of the Admiralty [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

Administration of the Admiralty The following memorandum, found amongst the papers of the late Sir George Cockburn, G.C.B., is of the highest interest as it contains the views of that gallant and experienced officer as to the construction or rather the reform, of the board of Admiral ty:— Having filled the situation of confidential or principal sea Lord of the Admiralty for more than 17 years, I feel that my opinion regarding the constitution of that board may, sooner or later, be deemed worthy of consideration and attention, I therefore am induced to place in writing the decision to which my experience has brought me on this point. I have, then, no hesitation in stating that I consider the present establishment of that board to be the most unsatisfactory and least efficient for its purpose that could have been devised. In the first place, it is most inconsistent and inconvenient that one member of the board should, without any communication with his colleagues, issue orders at ;»on...

lfo$ Inquirer & Coumi^dal Jftrcs. Quid verwn atque decens, euro et roffo, et omnls in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEJIBEli 12, 1855. Befobe we discuss the policy of a land tax it may not be amiss if we inquire whether any, and what precedents exist in Great Britain, or her colonies or dependencies, in favour of the imposition of a land tax, and more especially of the nature supposed to be applicable to this Colony. In adopting this course we consult the national taste, which sets great store upon precedents, and we do so the more willingly as, during the recent land tax correspondence, it has been stated that precedents do exist. In Great Britain the land does con tribute to the general revenue, but tne tax is not levied in the manner proposed by the advocates of the measure in this^Colony; it is not imposed with reference to the quantity of land, but with respect to its quality — not according to the number of acres, but the value of those acres, and, fur ther, not according to t...

TO THE EDITOR OR "THE INQUIRER AND COMMERCIAL NEWS." [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 12 September 1855

TO THE EDITOR OF "THE INQUIRER AND   COOMMERCIAL NEWS." SIR, — I wish to inquire, through the medium of your journal, why the Dog Tax is not en- forced in this district ? some parties paying, while others go free. I believe that no person would object to the tax if it was regularly collected, and the police made to do their duty a little better, but no one likes to pay when the natives are al- lowed to keep, not one or two dogs, but whole packs of useless curs. I do not speak at random, but state facts which I can prove. I was hunt- ing, a short time since, with a friend, on the sand- plains, when we came upon an old native, with 7 or 8 dogs, and not a good one amongst them. We afterwards came to some huts, where there were several other natives, each with from 1 to 3 dogs ; some of these, however, were good-looking dogs, such as I think they should be allowed to keep, provided the number is limited to one dog per man. It would not much matter how many dogs they had if ...

The cmera 1 appearance of the crops is good, and there is every indication of a plentiful harvest The chief difficulty against which the farmers have to contend is the very had state of the roads; and, unless something is done to remedy the evil, many accidents must occur to the dravs loaded with vrooL, and probably the loss of some valuable horses and bullocks, and perhaps human life. This morning,' (September ll,) weare enjoying'a refresh ing rain, whicli will do much good. If we had a few such days as yesterday, the crops must have been much injured.

LATEST INTELLIGENCE FROM THE SEAT OP WAR.

The ambus cades were carried at the point of the bayonet But whilst the attention of our troops was wholly taken up on the right, a strong body of Russians came quietly on our left and centre, and by taking advant age of the irregularities of the ground, managed to sur prise the few men who were in the trenches, killing several of them. Several companies arriving to the assistance of their comrades, the' Russian were charged with the bayonet and driven back into the town, leaving the ground covered with their dead. -In these two affairs, we unfortunately had a consider able number of men killed and wounded, but our loss is said to be nothing compared with that of the enemy.

Quid verum atque deeens, euro et rogo, et omnis in hoc sum WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1855. At no previous meeting of the Colonists was greater unanimity displayed than at that on Wednesday, and not alone was the concor dance complete, but the whole proceedings were essentially of a business-like nature and characterised by a steadfastness of purpose unusual in the public assemblies of this province. There was no prolixity of speech, no random utterances, no forced attempts at oratory, no grand efforts at effect, and as a consequence, no signal failures. All who took a part in the proceedings had evidently determined what course ought to be adopted ; they knew that the question at issue was, though of high importance, one of purely matter of fact ; they had been told that it was an affair of pounds, shillings, and pence, and they treated it as such. It was a busi ness' matter, and transacted in a business manner. The meeting was indeed a most important one, and the resolutions it adop...
