LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Hei. n1JrusTY's Btnur DA).--Wednesday ias observed as a day of the utmost hilarity and glee. Buifsiness to a very great extent was sus pended, and the substitute of recreation and pastime came in to sni'pply its place. Most of our industrioucs mcchanlics were dressed in their holiday clothes; and as a matter of extraordleary occurrence, 'thy laid aside their ploditg cire. Dl)uring the whole cay fire-arms we'e isces santly rending the air, in variouls parts of the town, and the good, nRrTeni, and BEST anvils that a son sof Vulcnn hadt in- his possession were put muoch more in requisitibn to pour forth the thundeo of Mlans, than employed in their legitimate use in o' fabricating utensils from the metals." When night canme on, tar barrels sent forth, in Julin, Gawler, and Percy-streets, their fierce flame.

The different lines of railroad are comfrleteid, ndl so far front being a channel for emplcovincnt of capital, they are now becoming scources ofiunmense revenue, antd the country?

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 27 May 1843

3IELBOURNE. TErt CORPORATION.-The celebrated quo war auto case has been decided upon by the Sydney Judges. The following is the substance of their determination. I'pon the maii and only legi mate question arising upon the allidanrits, we are of opinion', that the application was satis factorily answered, a?id that the rule nisi for the information ought to have leeii diseharged. When the question as to the validity of the Act constituting the Corporation of Melbourne shall regilarly and properly arise, if it ever shall do so, there are (as it appears to ius) other points than those to which Mr. Jitstice Willis has ad verted, on which the decision' of tliat qiestion will depend. We abstain, however, from offer ing any opinions whatever, at present, which may tend to prejudice the arrangements on the otheri side in a matter, as yet not under our cog nizance, and on which we heold, that it is irre concilable with the duty of any judge needless to give rise' to discuissioh.

NEW EMIGRATION SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 3 June 1843

NEW EMIGRATION SCIIHEME. TIe emigration scheme, briefly propounded in the back page of our present number, which we have copied from the Sydney Milorning Herald, we give insertion to, not because we think such a schem- will come into extensive operation, or that either the surplus population of Great Britain can be drawn off by a system of voluntary contribu tion of any kind, or that the Colonies can be at all adequately supplied by such a preca rious, uncertain, and gambling mode of pro curing the means of defraying emigration expenses. That, however, and numberless others, no matter how absurd, which are put forth, are suflliciently indicative of the ex treme anxiety of tihe British public on the subject of the vast and continuous increase of the home population. These emigration schemes give abundant proof of the incon venience that is felt at home by the great redundancy of the population, and that the thinking portion of the Mother Country are willing and desirous that somethin...

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. GREAT BRITAIN. THE RECENT REPEAL DEMONSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 3 June 1843

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. GREAT BRITAIN, TILE RECENT REPEAL DEMON STRATIONS. (FROM TUIE FREEMAN'S JOURNAL, NOV. 19.) The recent demonstrations in the provin ces in favour of Repeal are important in every point of view. They speak with the voice of hope to the people-they bring sounds of wailing to their enemies. They strengthen the patriotism of the populace, because they show how deep-rooted is the love ofdomestic legislation. They confound the calculations of the opponents of na tionality, because they prove that there is no apathy, no coldness, no want of nationality among the people. At a period peculiarly inclement for the season, thousands upon 'thousands of hardy Munster men, the sturdy children of the sea cost of Waterford, and of the mountains which stud that beau tiful country, collected in their might to hear from the lips of the Apostle of Repeal the tidings which proclaim the advent of the period when Ireland shall again take her stand among the nations; and cheerfully and ...

The support of public confidncce, ought to be, therefore, an object of prime consideration in commlu Iities, and its injury guarded against with the utmost jealousy. A government, from its commanding situation and extensive in fluence must always have a powerful sway in the support or decay of the public faith. Promises cautiously made, but fait?hfully per formed on the part of an administration, are essential to the support of confidence in its mneasulres. On tile contrary, heedless asser tions, that events too plainly show, were either never intended to be fulfilled, or thei...
