TOWN EDITION. HOBART TOWN: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 185*. At «the close of another Session of the Legislative Council, we are naturally led to inquire what advantages are likely to accrue to the colony from its sitting what alterations or additions, if any, have been made to the previously exist- ing enactments for regulating the social and commercial, as well as the political progress of the island : in a word, we seek to kno>v what the Council has done. ílt may however be advantageous, as a preliminary step to entering upon a general review of the Session, to recal in brief succession to our minds the real objects to which all Colonial Legislation ought to be directed; we ein then better decide how far our existing legis- lators have done their duty, and ascer- tain bettor wherein they have shown themselves deficient. It may be convenient, also, to hint that there are ceitain little somethings .which ought not to be done ; and among these »we would urge upon the attention of some ...

The Royal Assent 'having been given by His Excellency the Lieutenant-Gover- nor to the Act recently passed thiough the Council under the above title, renders it necessary to offe a few words of caution .to the various constituencies throughout the Colony, not with a view of guarding them against any difficulties likely te arise out of the Bill itself, but simply to obviate as much as possible the danger of too hastily determining on the choice of candidates for seats in the .ensuing Council. ' "But little can. at present be known as to who are likely to . come forward throughout the island:; for Buckingham hjiwvver we may state with confidence fHiat a candidate is already in the'field in the pe'r%on of C.
