It will be found perhaps to be the most important State Paper, as it certainly is the most interesting, which has appeared for many years, and it has the singular effect ot spuing unanimity in the British Cabinet apon a great domes- tic! question, and more -singular still of attaching the great leaders of the Opposition to the Minister. This Speech has travelled ,ont of the beaten track, and it exhibits a more Statesman-like expose than any document issued on a like occasion in the memory of man.

The following is the letter above alluded to : Mr. Editor,-Your late remarks, informing theTüblic of the real value of German dollars, has brought forth' from your Brother Courier, insinuations which are uncountable. From your standing in the Co'ohy, and also from the respect- ability of those Gentlemen you quote, it cannot for a moment be supposed but you ore equally interest...

Swan River. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 24 July 1829

Swan River. As the new Colony of Swan River has been occupying so   much of the attention of the Mother Country, and even of France and Holland, we feel it our duty to lay all the particu- lars we can collect respecting it before our readers. It appears by the English Papers, that there is a general     inclination to emigrate there, among all ranks in England, even branches of the Nobility. The Army, Navy, Engineers, Marine, and Artillery Half-pay Officers have requested to be allowed to sell out, in order to emigrate thither. The princi- pal inducement seems to be, that they will be freed from those Civil and Political restraints, under which unfortunately these British Colonies at present labour, and which has re- tarded their growth so grievously. In truth, they would be now far advanced as first-rate Colonies, and a credit to the Parent State, but for the withholding those Institutions, which give energy and life to all our exertions. We g...

HOBART TOWN : JULY 24, 1829. Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the Liberty of the Press is the Palladium of   all your Civil, Political, and Religious Rights. Junius. On every country the first creditor is the Plough. This ori- ginal and feasible claim supersedes every other demand. Edmund Burke. This highly gifted man, whose deep reasoning, expansive mind, and sublimity of thought, done credit to human nature, and to the country of his birth, who had the happy talent of expressing more, in fewer words than any writer of modern times, clearly seen, as in the test before us, that Agriculture äs the first and last resource of every nation; and, though a country may have other branches of beneficial commerce and industry, still they are only subsidiary to it. With this pre- face, we consider it our duty, week after week, to remind our fellow Colonists, that upon Agriculture this Island must chiefly depend. Our flocks, and her...
