THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 27 May 1843

TIHE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. IT were highly desirable that the Great Council of the Colony should be as soon as possible set in motion; and that the as sembling of that department of the Govern ment should not be unnecessarily delayed a day. The entire Colony is far from being in a satisfactory state; and measures expres sive of confidence, and calculated to create a higher tonation of feeling in thecapabilities of our adopted land, by a body of well_ chlosen representatives, would .be attended with beneficial effects ofamore than common kind. The suspension of the legislative functions at the present seasoil of depres sion, is calculated temporarily to add to the depression; the restoration of those func tions, and their legitimate exercise, would give a tone to confidence that few other measures could afford.

TIlE .NEYW PAMPHLET. " A sermon and address, delivered by the Rev. J. Y. Wilson, at St. Stephen's Church, Portland," (see advertisement). We are anxious to avoid collision with every class of our fellow-colonists; and above all things, polemicks, in a newspaper devoted to the general interests of the community are to be avoided. In noticing the publication above : named, however, while we are desirous of avoiding olfering matter to tempt disputa tion, we may be allowed to make a few general observations on the performance be fore us, indepedent of a partisan spirit.. The sermon is the first original publication which has been issued from the Portland Press; and we are much mistaken if it be not the very first religious discourse yhich has passed through tlhe press of the province of Australia Felix. Portland, therefore, in ,Protestant zeal, and sacred literature, has distinguished herself above tie older districts with which she is politically united. The publication was issued with...
