NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 16 August 1842
NEW ZEALAND. Papers from Wellington and Nelson, to the 9th ultimo, came to hand yesterday, but they contain little that is likely to be interesting to our general readers. At Nelson, where they have not yet spent all their imported capital, there appears to be considerable business doing ; but at Wel- lington, there appears to be " nothing moving but stagnation."
RESOURCES OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 16 August 1842
RESOURCES OF THE COLONY. Our intelligent correspondent Jason, after a silence of some months has re- sumed his pen, and transmitted us a very interesting letter on the resources of the Colony, which will be found in another part of the paper. The main principles laid down in this letter we consider irre- futable, although on some of the minor points there may be differences of opi- nion. The present state of the pastoral interests render any inquiry into our la- tent resources especially valuable, particu- larly when that inquiry is conducted by one so able to do it justice as Jason.

HOUSE OF COMMONS. Wednesday, February IG. BUSINESS OP THE HOUSE. A number ot petitionsVere presented in favour of a total repeal of the corn laws. Sir James Graham, in reply to Mr. Evans, with respect to the Local Courts Bill, stated the intentions ol' government to introduce a measure to facilitate the recovery of small debts. Mr. Thesiger called the attention of the house to the circumstances attending the petition against the return for the last Belfast election. The Earl of Belfast, who was one of the defeated candidates on that occasion, had petitioned against the return. Ile had since then, however, been raised to the peerage as Lord Ennis liowen, and it was, therefore, contrary to the privileges of the house that a peer should persevere in an election petition. As there had not been a sufficient time afforded for the consideration of the ques- tion, its further consideration was post- poned until Friday. CORN IA^WS.

Sir R. Peel said he had re- ceived intelligence to that effect, but he had receix'ei nothing in the shape of an official communication upon the subject, He expressed an earnest hope that the government of Spain, resting as it did on the good wishes of the bulk of the Spanish people, would resist any machinations directed agaiust it.

LordClancartymovedfor ccrtainreturns of the Number of Chaplains appointed to the Workhouses of Ireland under the New Poor-law Act.

While he said this, however, he was far from finding fault with the poor-law commis- sioners. He did not think that the com- missioners were warranted in paying the Roman Catholic chaplains of workhouses double th...

PATERSON. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 16 August 1842
PATERSON. Lord Stanley's speech in the English House of Commons, wherein he states that this colony is at present over supplied with labour, &nbsp; is another of the very glaring instances of &nbsp; ignorance of our circumstances which so often characterises the Secretary of State for the &nbsp; Colonies, it is, therefore, with great satisfac- tion that we see his Lordship's statement placed in the strong light of contrast with Mr. Macarthur's practical information, and so clearly confuted in one of the last week's numbers of the Herald, that we trust the &nbsp; delusion as to the inducements held out for &nbsp; immigration here, under which the people of England might otherwise labour, will be re- moved. From what source his Lordship received the information with which he fa- voured and astonished the house, it would be difficult to guess, as it will be remembered, that just about the time that the despatches which he would have last received...

SAMUELDAVIBS, elder son of the late James Davies, deceased, and administrator to his estate, begs most respectfully to inform the members of the Subscription Room, from whom his late father received so many acts of support and kindness during his life-time, that he has determined to carry on the business of the Subscription Room in all Its departments, as it has existed during the la«t sixteen years, as well as of the tavern and hotel; und he trusts, with numerous improvements, now in progress of fulfilment, with regard io the quantity, quality, and priority of information from every quarter of the world.
