POPULATION THE BEST BASIS OF REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

POPULATION THE BEST BASIS OF REPRESENTATION. OtJK contemporary, the Northern Argus, has on various occasions de voted a portion of its space to a review of a scheme of Parliamentary represen tation published in oar leading columns. However much we may differ from our I contemporary iu his political formula it cannot effect our annrAnistinn *iF tJ-- ' excellent and courteous spirit in which j he conducted his criticism. This same j spinl is of so rare occurrence now-a- i days, that its appearance is well de serving of note and approval, from what ever may be the source from whence bo commendable and truly wise a proce dure may spring. The contrast to such conduct presented by writers, who see every argument of an antagonist through a veil of prejudice and deny all merit to those who differ with them, not on the merits oi any separate eub ject, but on the general ground of dif ference is bo humbling a reflection to all who pursue the career of journalism with any more exalted idea tha...

PARLIAMENTARY EIGHT OF THE CROWN. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

PARLIAMENTARY RIGHT OF THE CROWN. The extraordinary procedure of tbe Herbert administration, wfaeu virtually defeated on the Railway scheme, in the last session of the Assembly of the old Parliament, at the beginning of the present year, gave great offence to the people of Northern and -Gentra! Queens land. The Government had orevioudv admitted the inadequate representation of i those districts in Parliament, and had presented a. measnre to the Assembly to increase their number of representatives in that branch of the Legislature, Regardless, however, of their, own admission, and contrary to constitutional practice, they induced the Governor, instead of asking tiie advice of some other member of the Assembly, .to dissolve Parliament, so that they might 'have an opportunity of retaining office. . When the measnre to give increased representation to the North was intro duced, it was not resisted on the ? ground that the claim wa* more than the enlarged population was justly entitled t...

ELECTORAL REGISTRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

ELE0TOUAL REGISTRATION. TttE hubbub caused by the late Muni- | c:p»l election has tended to drive from the public miiid a duty which for the public interest it behoves every elector to attend to with a vigilant assiduity. We are to have a general election some time next year —tbat is, if the promises of the Ministry touching electoral re form are adhered to — and it becomes doubly necessary that tbe advocates of a right-minded policy should see that the constituencies are placed iu a posi tion to speak out whenever they are appealed to. Heretofore a defective system of rpgistiafion, and ihe negli gence ofthe electors, have combined to leave at leatt half — and in some cases more than half — of the adult popula tion of the colony off the roll of voters. Hut next February will, we trust, i?ec a different ttatc of things ; and to this end w agaiu urjre upon our readers the necessity uf a combined aud ceneral Action in order that all who ought to have a vote may secure their privileges,...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

EDUCATION. That ancient f.ble which depicts the untimely end of tbe swelling frog who was emulous of the proportions of the ox, seems to have been forgotten by the advocates of tbe so-called National System of Education. They have so accustomed themselves to believe in the magnitude of their own importance that at length they on all occasions take it as a fact not to be disputed. And thns the pretentious annoyance of a fractional portion of our population — fractional in intelligence and wealth as well as in numbers — has foisted upon the colony a scheme to which the great bulk of the people are notoriously hostile. But this sort of ostentation so dili gently and successfully employed to hide the real truth is not the only weapon our opponents have resorted to. Next to magnifying your own strength the great art of controversy, as under stood by some writers, would seem to be to vilify your opponent. Hence the ' cry of sectarian intolerance has been raised with wondrous vigour. And w...

EMIGRATION REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

EMIGRATION RKGULATIONS. When the Executive, as a part of a cure for the Emigration irregularities, proclaimed an amended code of Regu lations, the subject of Emigration and its defects had called for go much of the public attention, that the time was very inopportune for a deliberate and impartial criticism of the new Regula tions and their value as means to pro duce the desired reform. When enter ing on the examination of the supposed amended code, we were struck with ad miration at the tact which offered the Regulations to the public as something designed to cure the evils which were then making considerable noise, when in reality the entire alterations on the code which had been framed jointly by Messrs. Herbert and Jordan in England would do little more than fill a single line in the Gazette. Any one desiring to satisfy himself of this fact, has only to compare the proclaimed Regulations with the code commencing on page 81 of the Immigration Com mittee's Report, presented to the...

A PUBLIC LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

A PUBLIC LIBRARY. Toe letter of Sir Bedmcnd Babby, to the Hon. Secretary of the Philosophical Society, read at the annual meeting of that institution, furnishes the text for comment on a subject of great interest, and on which there will be accordance of sentiment in all enlightened minds. The fact of public attention being called to the subject of e Public Library, at the same time that the Committee of the School of Arts is making another of its intermittent itudcham-teristio eff-rts to lodge the institution in a building worthy of the capital of the colony, is well-timed and pertinent. For, without any desire to impede institutions de signed for mental culture and the spread of knowledge, or to deny to Mechanics' Institutes, energetically conducted, all the advantages which may be claimed for them, there are verv many well qualified to express an Librarv SB 'fiir* in advance of any or ganisation iu ttie n /ture of a Literary Institute O* a School of Arts.
