Wherever title by occu pation is claimed, there the la^ of England at o*:ce obtains, and its rights and immunities are coexistent with the title. The power of appoint ing a Governor, and of investing him as repre sentative with preio^atii-e powers, is equally undoubted, but we have already seen that powe-s of this nature infer no right of legislating or taxing, and ihetefore leave no room to pro vide for tho-econtingencies which are the natural concomitants of a new state of things. Ifence, in the early history of colonization, the creation, of chart- r governments, that is, sole or joint cor porations, in whom the ri^ht of s...

CHOICE OF PASTURAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 December 1838

1 CHOICE OF PASTURAGE. ! OUR readers will observe in the report which, ve give of the recent meeting on this subject, that two very important points have been conceded by the Commissioner of Public Lands. The reserved dis tricts are to be immediately -surveyed, end the Commissioner has waived all idea of granting cny leases which may have a tendency to defer the right of prior choice, to which the holders of Pre liminary Land Orders ore undoubtedly entitled, So much therefore we bave clearly gained. The right to pasturage is one wuich involves many points of very considerable complexity, and as we consider the subject to bs of greatpublic im portance, we shall revert to it at as early a period as possible.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 15 December 1838

PORT PHILLIP. BY the Gem vre have received the three first num- bers of the Port Phillip Gazette, which are dated respectively thc 27th Oct., and the 3rd and 10th, Nov. This publication has been established at Melbourne by Messrs. ARDEN and STRODE, from Sydney, and so far as we are able to judge by the numbers received, both the management and ap- pearance is much to their credit. The establish ment of a newspaper at Port Phillip must be of great advantage to the settlement, as through such a medium only can the progress of a place be ade- quately made known. We trust that our Port Phillip contemporary will abstain from everything like parly, particularly while alone in the field, it will be mean, it will be cowardly, to do otherwise. We have only room this week to extract from the Port Phillip Gazette the Melbourne Price Current, which will be found in onr last page.

ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

! ABORIGINES. THE question of the rights, the management, and con duct of the Aborigines has beena source of fruitful dis cussion and complaint between the settlers ami the home Govrnment, which time and circumstances seem only to increase. ' On the side of the whites it has been considered a sore grievance to tolerate at the least, and in many cases to be obliged to avert by bribery the pilfering, troublesome, and often out rageous conduct of these original " kings of the soil." On the part of the blacks the foundation of their wrongs has been simply yet strikingly expressed by their proverb of ' whiteman come, kangaroo go' implying as we lately heard a philanthropic emigrant in argument with a settler observe-that the crea tures upon which they depended for subsistence either by the chase or the snare, have been, and are daily retreating from the footsteps of a race whose arts and power are so much superior to the<r ancient enemies, as to leave no chance of their being ...

REPORT OF A VISIT TO YORK PENINSULA, BY MESSRS. COCK AND JAMIESON. To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

REPORT OF A VISIT TO YORK PENIN SULA, BY MESSRS. COCK AND JAMIESON. To the Editor of the Southern Australian, Sut,-Being desirous previous to my return to Eng land to dispel some portion of the doubts or rather the complete ignorance which exists respecting York, Peninsula and the country near Port Lincoln, 1 j gladly availed myself of the opportunity of accom ; paBying some gentlemen on an expedition to these coasts. Mach interest is known to exist, especially j in England, concerning these localities-aud this interest appears to be well founded, when we reflect, that to a pastoral and a grazing colony, with a ra I pidly increasing population, space Jg an object of th« .first importance. From the geographical relations of Spencer's Golf, it is to bs inferred that its shores are not less fertile than those of St. Vincent's Gulf. To bring that inference to the test was the object of j our expedition. j A continued prevalence of strong gales from the S.W. prevented us from entering Sp...

PORT PHILLIP NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

POUT PHILLIP NEWS. DENMARK HILL.-The arrival of this vessel has been an era, if we may be allowed the expression, in the history of this (to be) colony. We believe she is intended finally for a floating store at Williams' Town, for the reception of the goods of such shipping as from their drought of water, are unable to proceed to di el bourne; and is the first vessel registered from this port. The Denmark Hill has brought a steam boat, the Fire-fly, to ply up and down the Yarra Yarra, which will be the means of affording a facility of communication and conveyance between Mel bourne and the Point, the want of which has long been felt. She has also conveyed to this shore, the Kev. J. C.

To the Editor of the Southern Australian. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 22 December 1838

To tlie Editor of the Southern Australian. Sta,-As the pasture question affects, very mate rially, not only individuals, but the entire colony, and that ia its most vital parts, I trust, that persons having a stake in it, as well as a sincere desire for the general good, may be allowed to approach the question, io the hope that its calm discussion may lead to a satis factory conclusion. The leasing of pasture land seems to be premature, when considering the fact, that more than half of the preliminary purchasers are not yet in possession of their land, and many holders of Iaad orders for eighty acre sections cannot get a spot in the surveyed lands to answer them, and indeed almost all that is worth selecting has been chosen ; we must first be put ia a position to live before we can be expected to con tribute either to the revenue or emigration fund. The surveys were all along understood to proceed down districts B, C, D. E. F. li, &c, where pre liminary purchasers had chosen...

i LEGISLATION-4. AND 5. VM. IV. C. 95. j Vires acqurit eundo. WE resume our discussion wi tn. pleasure, because we feel that every step of onward progress brings us nearer to a triumphant conclusion of our case. We have already shewn that the word person has in it a peculiar emphasis ; that it imports the exist ence of independent volition, and is contrasted with, the inferiority and subservience of the mere officer. In commenting upon the Orders in Council issued by his late Majesty, and by Queen Victoria, we shall have occasion to add additional illustrations to those which we have already proffered on this point. For the present we shall content ourselves with request ing that our readers will note, in addition, a pecu liarity in the portion of the 2nd section of the Act which is not likely to occur to them on a hasty perusal of the text-the King will be found to have a power to authorize^ONE or morepersons. We confess we deem that the power thus vested in the King,to confer the ...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. ¡ THE ABORIGINES. To the Editor of the Southern Av st ralian. SIB,-In my last I alluded to the causes which have mainly led to that spirit of friendship, and those peaceable habits which at present obtain among the native population of the colony, and the subject naturally leads me to the consideration how far the government have contributed towards such a result, and in what manner they are now following up the triumph the colonists have effected over those whom our neighbours have found it necessary either to exter minate altogether, or to treat as an intolerable incüm brance upon all colonial settlements. In the remarks 1 made upon the subject in my former letter, I traced the course of onr success from the commencement of our establishment in thé colony, and shewed that by a continuance on the part of the Colonists, of habits of conciliation, and from several fortuitous circumstances attending our early location, we had been enabled to establish and main...
