The Guardian, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE "PORTLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights—Not to Infringe upon those of Others. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29. SIR CHARLES SLADEN AT HAMILTON. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 29 August 1876
WITS WHICH U I5NCORPOlTED TUB "rPORT.A'?D WHPREtS." To Protect our Rights- Not to Infringe upon those of Others. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29. SIR CHARLES SLADEN AT HAMIITON. SmI OnaLEas SLADE is now one of the sitting members in the Legislative Council for the Western Province, and his opinions to the public are now only of secondary importance in one sense, whilst in another they are of the greatest importance to the country as a whole. There is much to admire, if something to condemn, in the speech of Sir CnARLxs, recently delivered in Hamil. ton, and of which an abstract is given in another column, but in our opinion if there were more men of like honesty of stamp, men who scorn to palter with the country in a double sense, political parties would be better defined, and professed politicians would not be regarded in the light of impudent schemers whose sole object is, their own advantage and interests, whilst the country is left to take care of itself. How comes it that knave and politici...

MELBOURNE. Melbourne, August 25. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 29 August 1876
MELBOURNE. (rtOM OWe OWN 00elESrONDENT.) Melbourne, August 25. A suggestion was made In the Assembly last night that a Select Committee should be appointed to inquire into the system of management pursued by the Protectorato Board of the Aborigines. It many be taken for grknted that should tills he adopted, the inquiry so made will manifest that we have been singularlyneglectfal of our duties in this respect, and that the sooner the power of the Board, so spamnodically and ignorantly exercised, is centralised in the hands of the Government, some individual possessing its confidence, the better. I happen to be il a position of learning very frequently the opinion of residents of the district adjacent to the Corrandjerk asylum, and if only one-fifth of those state ments haveo foudation, thero is no donbt that a single hand should be entrusted with thle cosnsorvance of tihe race to rwhichl we owe at least the duty f softoening the rigors of their declining days.

OELLULOID. We have on two occalons caelled at tention to tlis lno Americn4 invention. It is, as previously described, an imitation of ivory, possesiog a striking resemblance thereto, and some excellent maniufacturing enatures. That there is the prospect of its being largely hiltuduced, and that it is intensely Jil ,mnutable. are certaintlies ; in proof of which we may mention an inci dent which recently occurred, A gentle man was enjoying a game of billlards, nld at the samet time smoking. The bil itrd balls were of ordinary appearance t but stddoely, upon ai spark falling from the cigar on to one of them, it burst forth into a volume of it tmo,-a demoniacal spectacle akin to the liery flw froa the Ilq for keg in .Faust, when touched by that worthy's amiable colnpanion MephlisetJpelel I.

SIl CHARLES SLADEN AT HLAMILTON. Sir Charlea Sladen held that tile two evils of the present system of government were, excessivoly long sessions devoted more to personal matters than public business, and the action of a part of the electorstn not returning members properly representative of the people. On to lJand question, he was in laver of disposin4 of tile ilferior lands n sw left in considerably larger areas. Many experiments had been made in land legislation, and there were so many con flicting interests, that hbe despaired of dis coveraig any roeally good method of alientinog land. The Legislature had ignored tlhe tact that the great bulk of the land was unfit for agricultural and onlysuit ableforpnstoral pnrposes. Tbose who were acquiring large estalos wore said to be maklng themselves v-ry odious, but what else cauld be expected than gradual translers of .small iholdings which could inot be properly employed in agriculture ' When' the selectors found themselves unable to mn...
