(To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 April 1856

' (To the Editor of the lllawarra Mercury ) Sir.— You will greatly oblige by the insertion in your valuable' paper of a few remarks, dictated by tho perusal of a letter I have' just read in it, fi'om a person who signs himself ' An Elector and Landholder of St. Vincent,' but, by the tenor and supposed pur- _ pose, I should imagine to be a resident in May Fair, or, perhaps : il.iy Field. Surely, Sir, party spirit must be very strong in this district, when men, who have lived all their lives without an;- ' exertion in behalf of the interests or well-being of the community in which they live, rise up with the dignity of their newly acquired . , office to. harangue younger men (they say of less experience), but ;) one of whom-, at k'ast, and to whom tho latter remarks ot tue letter are most applied to, after having lived seven or eight years in this district, without a stain or blemish on his reputation or . character, but has always been indefatigable in his exertions for'.' the advanc...

LAND AND' -IMMIGRATION. (From the Arr/us. Mdrclf IS.) ' Our readers generally are aware that at present tlie sale of the public lands in :the. Australian colonies is regulated by an act of PatT;ament](5 and 6 Vic;, cap. 36) which has i been in force since th$ year 1842. | The principal features of ..this 'act are- the following:— It is provided that, with the exception of reserves for cer tain public purposes, no vfaste land can be sold, unless it shall have been expos.e.d for sale by .augtion at, the miui mum upse^: price of t£l per a-?re. The laiids are divided, into four classes, viz.V town, * suburban, special counjtry, and country laiids. All but the last class may be put up at higher upset p'rices than' that abovenamed. But in case tne country tanas exposea-ap any sale snail- not realise one.: pound- per acre they are withdrawn, ? and they' n^ay after wards be purchased by private contract at the upset price.

%irjt' nf fjjc Citlu'itial %im. LAND ANT) IMMIGRATION. {From the Argus, March 19.) ; The present land system of Australia has been of .slow '.growth, and it may astonish some of the gentlemen who :.a.re imbued with American notions, to learn that it wa- 4 .adopted after the cheap-land-system, or rather the giving ' '.away-of-land-system, had been tried in three out of four ' ?colonies, and had miserably failed. , Up to the year 1820, we find it stated in an account of - New South Wales, that the British Government assisted free settlers to emigrate by paying their passages, and 'giving them grauts of land at peppercorn rents upon their ^/arrival, allowing them also convict servants under the iVassigzimeut system, at the public expense, and frequently giving tliein a bonus of live stock to commence with.' A similar system prevailed in Van Diemen's Lind. Mr. West, in his excellent history of that island, states' that V*'; the advantages offered, to settlers so late as IS 18 in deluded...

(To the Editor of the Illawarra Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 April 1856

(To the Editor- of the Illawurra Mercury,) Sir — The bustle of electioneering contests has now nearly come to a termination, and the public ate no longer edified by tke various preambles se :. forth in the daily journals, of plain liberal patriotism, commo:t-sense principles, frothy declamations, ., party, -pirit, or canting humbug — one and all are flitting like the pass ing cLud from our gaze ; and as far as suffrage-soliciting addresses go, we are not likely to.be much troubled by them for some' time , at all events. If variety gives greater choice, the people of New South Wales cannot have had a more ample and dissimilar held of candidal s to choose from, and whatever others may have thought' of their wait, they were all anxious to serve their country, and gave at the some time weighty reasons for their b.ing elected. One had brought up a large family creditrbly, another was a native, this mm was wealthy, and had a stake in the country, while others could point to a spotless pub...

[FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 28 April 1856

[from a correspondent.] Temperance. — Last Wednesday a lecture was delivered in tho Free Kirk by the Rev. Mr. Mackie, having.for its title, ' Demand and Supply .' The subject he said was one which necessarily came under the review of the political economist. It had its ap plications not only to the subject to which he intended to apply it, but to almoct every subject which presented itself for man's consideration. To lay down an absolute law or rule as to whether the de.'-iand regulates* the supply, or the supply the demand, may not be possible. A general law or principle however can he got at, and may be stated thus: — All natural or necessary wants — t. e. the demand arising from man's position and circumstances as a denizen of this world, regulates, or governs the supply ; and vice versa the supply regulates the demand in reference to all unnatural or artificial wants. As an illustration of the first half of this principle, for any given number of individuals the demand for food,...
