ANOTHER BATCH OF FIGURES. [Newspaper Article] — The Hobarton Mercury — 9 September 1854

ANOTHER BATCH OF FIGURES. When we come to the details of the estimated expenditure, we find the cost of establishments occupying l8 "pages, commencing in all propriety with that of the Lieutenant-Governor. Here the total cost chargeable upon the colonial revenue is £2073 4s. 9d., divided into salaries £lf533 4s. 9d., forage allow- ances £400, and contingencies £40, in which last amount we are glad to find £30 allotted to newspapers. The Legis- lative Council expends £4263 11s. in salaries, and £622 10s. in contingencies. In the items comprised under this latter head" are, books of reference for library £200, which we should not be sorry to.see increased; £20 for the purchase of newspapers from the adjoining colo- nies, die press of this island being appa- rently deemed unworthy of encourage- ment ; and £200 for reporting. This last amount should be twice as much. We question whether the salary of the Speaker can sufficiently compensate him for the grievous inflictions - which the pr...
