ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS A FREE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845
ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS A FREE PORT. &nbsp; We are happy to find that his Excellency is taking the first opportunity that presents itself, to yield with a good grace to the pressure from without, by intimating to the Legislative Council, that they will only have themselves to blame, if they do not get rid of the existing tonnage dues, during the present session.—S. Australian Register. SPECIAL SURVEY OF 20,000 ACRES OF MINERAL, LAND IN THE NORTH. FOR some time past " rumour with her hundred tongues" has assigned to one par- ticular district, about 80 miles northward from Adelaide, an amazing preeminence in mineral wealth, in the shape of a monster lode, or vast deposit of copper ore, traceable to the extent of fifteen miles in length, carrying with it a visible breadth of from fifteen to twenty feet, and yielding surface copper in sufficient abundance to load hun- dreds of drays with the loose mineral. It appears that a shepherd from the district alluded to (or of another distr...
PORT PHILLIP INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845
PORT PHILLIP INTELLIGENCE. WE have papers from this settlement to the &nbsp; 10th inst., the most interesting feature in which is Lord Stanley's despatch, approving in the main of Sir George Gipps' proposals for the settlement of the disputes which have existed for some time between the Squatters and the Government. We subjoin the epi- tome of Sir George's proposals, which ap- pear in the Port Phillip Herald, and which indicates the position in which Squatters stand in respect to the tenure of land. One ad- dition indeed, suggested by Lord Stanley, will probably take effect, namely, that the lease of a " run " surrounding a purchased homestead should extend for a period of eight &nbsp; years instead of from year to year only. &nbsp; Adhering, therefore, to thc principle of the Lands Act of 1842, (5 and 6 Victoria, c. 36), there are three things to be borne in mind :- Firstly,—That the occupiers of Crown Lands cannot purchase any portion of their stations for ...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 18 July 1845
SYDNEY. Railroads.—The formation of a railroad from Newcastle to Maitland is attracting the attention of many of the residents of the Hunter at present, and as the capital re- quired for the completion of the work is com- paratively trifling, it is probable that steps will be taken to lay it down before long. The distance is about twenty-one miles ; the district abounds with hard wood well adapted for rails, and the traffic would be very great, especially as it is probable the line would, after a time, be continued on to the Upper Hunter. The expense has been estimated at £350 per mile, but say in round numbers that it would be requisite to raise the sum of £ 10,000, there would be little difficulty in doing this under the authority of an Act of the Legislature, which would be necessary, unless the work were undertaken by private parties. College for the Colonies.—Our readers will remember that in consequence of a sug- gestion made by the Bishop of Australia, the Rev. Edward Colerid...

LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 July 1845
LOVE. 1 Oh I where is love ? nnd what is love ? Can tongue of mortal tell ? Or can the outward eye discern Where love delights to dwell ? I sec it in thc infant's smile ; The blush of maiden fair; ? And in thc deep and anxious gaze, Of fond maternal care. I sec it in yon modest llowcr, Thnt seems replete with bliss, Whose innocence nod purity Thc sunbeams love to kiss. I sec it in yon fairy cloud, j That folds within its breast The golden colours of thc sky, Like wnndercrs charmed to rest. I sec it in thc sun-lit heaven. Thc stnrry arch of night, Throwing around thc boundless whole Tile spirit of delight. It is that universal soul, Possessing time and pince, Clothing thc universe of things "With beauty, peace, and grace. 'Tis in thc earth, thc sea, thc sky, Around, beneath, above, 'Tis here, 'tis there, 'tis everywhere, For thou, O God ! art love.

THE THREATENED ROAD AND PAVING ACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 July 1845
THE THREATENED HOAD AND PAVING ACTS. A general opinion prevails tliat it is imnc oocanry to lmvo any plililip ilpmnnstrnt.inn of opposition to tlicse bills as tliey will bc shorn of their objectionable features (so far as they can bc by that body) in their passage through thc Legislative Council. In respect to thc Paving and Lighting Act, even should it pass in its present state, much uneasiness need not bc felt, as in the election of Commissioners it will be in the power of thc people to neutralize its unfairly burdensome provisions, in fact, to render them a dead letter. The remedy is not so available however in the case of thc Road Act, should it pass, as tho Government reserves to itself thc execution of its ob- noxious provisions. Any apathy in respect to its adoption will be regretted too late when a turnpike gate is erected at the top of Elizabeth street ; when those who reside at New Town and beyond hnve to pay daily toll for driving to town to their business ¡ when dealers ...
REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 July 1845
REPRESENTATION; THE value of representative legislation is sometimes exaggerated, but it may be un- derrated. It will neither moralize the vicious nor enrich thc poor ; thc chief d forders in- cident to social life arc private ; thc fluctu- ations of trade and thc cost of Subsistence often depend on causes which p*udencc cnn neither anticipate nor elude, i'et if laws arc important, thc right of legislation must be contemplated with concern.1 In theory they are thc instruments of justice, hut their diameter is determined by thc spirit in which they arc enacted not loss than thc agents by whom they arc administered. Thc friends of arbitrary povrer might be allowed to deprecate thc dominion of n mob, did they alwnysnccurntely define thc monster; but a partial memory and vigorous imagina- tion confound thc caprice of ignorance nnd resentment with that love of freedom which rarely breaks away from thc channels of order unless swollen by the obstruction of injustice. The excesses of popul...
