The Financial Statement* IN the Legislative Assembly on "Wednesaay, 2 4tb, instant, Mr. Stuart said it was unnecessdry now to apologise for the peculiar time at which this statement was made, as that question had already been dealt with by the House. Much had been said and written about our financial prosperity, and it was sometimes contended that our prosperity was only of a fleeting character. He, on thc contrary, thought that with judicious expen diture, our great wealth, even such as wai derived from the sale pf Crown lauds, must prove a great blessing. It Was to be regretted that all our revenue was placed under one head. He had divided thc accounts into revenue proper, or that which Was derived from taxation, revenue derived from the various public works, such as railways, post and telegraph offices, and revenue derived from the interest due on conditional purchases. The other sources of income he classed as extraordinary, auch as the sale of Crown lands and the like. -We had ...
