TAXATION—COLONIAL CHARTER GOVERNMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 17 November 1838

TAXATIONr-COLONIAL CHARTER GOVERNMENTS. THEORIES (says Herschel) are best arrived at by the consideration of general laws ; but are most securely verified by comparing them' with par ticular facts ; because this serves as a verification of the whole train of induction from the highest to the lowest. But then the comparison must be made with facts purposely selected so as to include every variety of case, «ot omitting ex treme ones, and in sufficient numbers to afford every reasonable probability of detecting' <errOr. It is for the reason assigned by lite learned and elegant writer quoted, that we have chosen to follow up the thesis maintained in our last num I ber, by the consideration of the language of the old charters, granted by our Kings to their «migrating subjects, in the palmy days of royâ. r prerogative. 'K'>^ To a mind but lightly versed in the theory of,/, the English constitution, the lordly language of-. '' these documents would seem to infer grant f rathe...

THE HARBOUR SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 17 November 1838

THE HARBOUR SURVEY. His Excellency the Governor has signified his intention to the gentlemen who have carried on this Survey at their own expense, that as soon as , Colonel LIGHT has completed the work the Government will purchase the plans and draw ings, at a sum equivalent to the ex pences in ' curred. His Excellency has expressed himself in high terms of commendation of the public .i: spirit that instituted this survey ; and we consi I der that he deserves ecjual praise for the course .' he has pursued respecting it. We cannot forbear remarking, in reference to the list of the proprietors in this little affair, and A- many other similar matter.«, how uniformly we '% find in such lists the names of those who are .% designated by Mr. STEVENSON as "the Fisher gang,*'-'* the tailors of Tooley-street,"-" the % hangers on at the Adelphi,"-'* the principle . mongers/'-**the radicals,"-"the restless ill conditioned and insolent demagogues,"-" the defeated ninnies," and a thousand other e...

JOURNAL OF COL. LIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 17 November 1838

JOURNAL OP COL; ¿ICBT. WE annpunce with much pleasure that it is the intention of Colonel LIGHT to publish in the colony, the journal of his proceedings from the time of bis first arrival on these shores up to the day of hts resignation ;-the first pages are now before us. We rejoice the more at ibis as it will afford the best answer to the attacks upon him and the survey which distinguished the early career of those who ventured to dispute riot, only his judgment and ability, but who called in ques tion his activity and diligence. A diary of every day's proceedings will shew the valut cf sucha slander, while the faithful record of the opinions he formed, and of those who attacked him, will come in admirable juxta-position and contrast. Colonel LIGHT has not spared the folly and ig norance of those «ho attempted to dictate to him, or strove to de eat his measures; and his plain un varnished tale WP predict will confer upon them no very enviable fame. WE have received the communicati...

PRICE OF BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 17 November 1838

P&ICiÈ. OF BREAD. TBC present high price of this important article of consumption demands the attention of the public and of the Colonial Government. We are satisfied from the information we have re ceived that the priie at present charged is at leatt one-third more than it ought to be, with reference to the price of flour. Some sort of check should be placed upon, the charges of the baker, probably the most effectual and whole some one would be a determination pn the part t of the public to patronize any baker who wpuld make good bread and sell it at a fair and reason able profit. It would well answer the purpose of any respectable baker to open an establish ment upon such terms. We shall advert further to this subject in our next. DANGEBOUS AMUSEMENT. - We think His Excellency is loudly called upon to take some immediate steps to relieve the inhabitants of Adelaide from the painful anxiety they have to ei^dure almost every night, in consequence oi the dangerous practice of...

THE GREEN SLIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 17 November 1838

THE GREEN SLIPS.   WE advise Mr. STEVENSON, if he really cares one farthing about the characters of Capt. STURT and Mr. STEPHEN, to leave the defence of them to other hands, and allow this question to rest. His Excellency, we understand, has taken the proper course, and in spite of Mr. STEPHEN'S opinion as to his undoubled right to these acres, which opinion, from his boasted long experience in the law, he doubtless considered would be all     sufficient ; the matter has been referred to the     Commissioners. In the meantime the support given by the Gazette has excited the colonists, and a deputation representing one hundred and eighty proprietors of land, of the labouring class, waited upon Mr. POLLARD the other day, and volunteered to join him in any expence which might be necessary to contend this point to the uttermost.     We begin to suspect that Mr. STEVENSON, being irritated at his un...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. LAUNCESTON. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 November 1838

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. LAUNCESTON. I - We are informed by a Hobart Town corres pondent, that all the varions reports from this colony npon prison discipline,-embracing, we believe, those of the present Commanding Officer ot the Troops, the present Colonial Secretary, the Chief Police Magistrate, and t*»e Inspector of Roads, as well as the papers of Capt. Maconochie.-have come out to the Lieutenant-Governor by the Coromandel, as printed by order of Parliament. We learn that Capt. Maconochie's papers had no priority of con sideration given to them, but that the whole batch of penal essays were laid before Parliament at one and the same time. We further learn that the remarks of Capt. Cheyne, io his paper on prison discipline, upon the general character of the colonists, are so severe and unsparing, as to throw all that Capt. Maconochie has ever been charged with saying into the shade. They are said to be thoroughly astound ing! We mightily approve of this pian at home of publishing all th...

GOVERNMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 November 1838

GOVERNMENT HOUSE.     THE Government House is at last about to be erected upon the plan,(with a few modifications.)   originally designed for it by Mr. O'BRIEN, whose liberal proposal to come out to this colony, in the Survey Department, at half the salary he had then offered him at the Mauritius, will cause him to be long remembered by his old   friends among the early colonists. We under- stand His Excellence has appointed Mr. KING- STON to superintend the work, and that the       whole of it will be submitted to public tender.   As the building will be executed in brick instead of wood as originally proposed, the expense will, of course, exceed the original estimate ; but we understand that the total will not exceed £7000. The propriety of submitting all public works to open competition nobody can dispute, even,although Mr.STEVENSON has, when it suited him, been known to approv...

INDIAN EXTRACTS. From the Sydney Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 November 1838

INDIAN EXTRACTS. j - From the Sydney Gazette. By the arrival of the Hind at Sydney we have received India papers to the end of May. The j ollowing is a summary of their contents : - Ber Majesty's ships Lame, Rattlesnake, Wei lesley. Favorite, and Victor, and Her Majesty's brig Algerine, were all lying in Madras Roads, in April last. There was a rumour that the rendezvous pf this squadron at Madras is consequent on, and baa reference to, the admiral's intended visit to Chioa. Speculation, also, was afloat aa tp whether the Naval Commander-in-Chief, in his négociation with the1 Celestial Empire, is to act under separate instruc tions from the Ministry, or in conceit with the govern ment of India. However, the naval bead quarters being at Trincomalee, thal would seem to be the most natural spot for th« assemblage of the various com i mandera simply to pay their respecta to the new 7 ' Admiral; the papers, therefore, are disposed to couple' ' . the fact of the assembling of so many «hip...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 24 November 1838

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. FROM fae facts recently laid before Parliament relating to emigration, and now that the public mind is turning in that directio 1, and that em gra tion is proceeding on so great a scale, as to become of national importance, it appears that not less than 694,000 p arsons have emigrated from Great Britain, with a view to settle in foreign land*, within the last twelve years. In the last yea * the number amounted to upwards of 70,000. * Of all these by far the greater number have settled in the United. States-a very small proportion only in colonies strictly British. Within the last two years a pro blem has been solved, fraught with consequences to the future welfare of mankind, and especially of the millions of the over-wrought, uneasy, and industrious classes of Great Britain. The enlight ened founders of the new colony of South Austra lia have shown, by a successful experiment, how a fund can be created out of the waste lands of the colonies for .the extension of th...
