THE imSESTON G0URIEB. MONDAY, MARCH 6.

Our correspondent states, upon authority of a private letter from an influential gentleman re siding in London, that His Lordship is most favorably disposed towards the Colonies, and a strenuous advocate for conceding to them the earnestly demanded boon of Legislation by representation.

One of the three regiments, it is said, will be ?quartered at Ross or some ot...

MEETING OF THE COLONISTS AT ADELAIDE. (Continuation of Mr. Edward Stephen's speech.) [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 14 March 1842
MEETING OF THE COLONISTS AT ADELAIDE. (From our last.) (Continuation of Mr. Edward Stephen's speech.) I have, from the commencement of the present pressure been struck with the fact that the colonists did not appear to me te^urn their attention to the causes that have been in operation to bring about the present crisis. When discussing our state of affairs, we never seem to have agreed upon a point at which our opinions might coincide, I mean the real cause of our financial colonial embarrassment. It is clear to me, and I think it will be clear to you also, that the simple cause of our pre sent state has been that the rapid expenditure in the early history of the colony, suddenly ceased at the very moment when the colony was most in need of such support, and that had such expenditure ceased more gradually, or ceased a year later than it did, our state would not have been what it now is. Since the foundation of the colony (five years) the local government have expended between £400,0...
