NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 2 September 1842
NEW ZEALAND. SOME interesting extracts from the New Zealand papers will be found in the fourth page. Among them are some from the New Zealand Colonist and Port Nelson Gazette, a new paper started avowedly to correct the misrepresentations of the Gazette, the organ of the New Zealand Company ; it appears to be a temperate well conducted journal, and is well printed. We would take this opportunity of suggesting to parties who start papers in New Zealand, that the first title of a paper should show the place at which it is published. For instance : The Nelson Examiner, The Auckland Standard, The Day of Islands Observer, The Port Phillip Herald, The Launceston Courier, The Sydney Morniny Herald, &c. The first paper that was published in New Zealand was excusable in taking to itseh the title of New Zealand Gazette, but all others should certainly have been more distinct. At Auckland nothing very particular had occurred, but it was expected that the town would rapidly increase in ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE LAW OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR. To the Editor of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Morning Herald — 2 September 1842
«ivTox.ian BxxB&crt. THE LAW OF DEBTOR AND CREDITOR. To the Editor of the Times. IN all the laws as regards debtor and creditor passed by the late administration, the interest and protection of the creditor have been entirely lost sight of. Trades- men appear to have been considered a fair game for swindlers and other dishonest - persons, and entirely deprived of the means of obtaining their rights, either by law or otherwise. I could give you at least one hundred cases of downright robbery, for which I could, by no possi- bility, get redress-revenge, perhaps, T might have obtained, by putting myself to £625 or .£30 expense, but what advantage , should I have derived from it ? I opposed a fraudulent debtor last year, who owed me J627, and my costs of opposition , amounted to /£32 Is. 2d., which is pay- ing rather dearly for my revenge ; but, Sir, I must relate a case to you, which I think will conviuce you of the inefficaey of the present laws, if the Legislature ever contem...

MAY IT l'LHASE YOUR LoKDbUli*.-We Lave the honour to inform your Lordship, that it is the intention of many settlers of New Zealand to emigrate to some one of the islands in the Pacifie, for the purpose c1 forming a permanent settlement. They are compelled to adopt this step on account of the ruin in which the Colony is involved through the impolitic and mis- chievous acts of the local government, the particulars of which your Lordship must be well aware of, from the numerous com- plaints already transmitted to your Lord- ship. Until the establishment of British authority, their circumstances were highly prosperous in New Zealand, mid they must still confess, that the country in itself is admirably adapted for the settlement of Europeans. In thus removing themselves from New Zealand, the emigrants seek no compensa- tion for loss sustained at the ...

WE have been favoured with a sight of the results of the census of Auckland, which is now complete, mid we shall have the pleasure, in mi early nutnber, of lny ' ing before our readers its details in an en- tire form,-in the mean time, we can gratify curiosity, by stating thnt the to»ni amount of population consists of one thousand nine hundred and sixty-two souls, of whom nearly three-fourth are adults-the total number of habitations, consisting almost entirely of wooden liouses, is four-hundred and thirty-five ; if we make allowance for the military in the barracks, this return will give nu avernge of very little more than four persons in each dwelling, which is a very favourable indication of the comfort and respect- ability of our inhabitants, for, in so young a community, it might have been exported that the people would have been crowded into temporary habitations, instead of being settled each fam...

»fie Afitmeg fttorm'iiff ibrraltr. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1812. -m "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." COURT OF REQUESTS' BILL. THE Council having refused to insert a clause in the new Court of Bequests' Bill, making a defendant suable at the place at which a debt is contracted, thereby com- pelling a plaintiff to follow a debtor all over the country, although he may remove half a dozen times, we must say that wc consider the usefulness of the Act will be very much contracted, and it is rather singular that the Bill which has by this time been laid before the Legislative Council of Van Diemen's Land, should contain the clause which the Sydney peti- tioners prayed might be introduced, and which the Council refused ; the only ground being, that newspaper proprietors should not give credit to persons residing at Bathurst, because no London newspaper proprietor would think of sending his paper to York without due security for the I payment. The circumstances of this colony and England ...
