After some other business of a formal or imimpor tant character, Mr. SAMUEL made his financial statement. He showed that the actual deficit at tho end of 18(58 was loss than had been estimated. It was only L110.743 14s ld, not as estimated, Ll.30,000. The revenue for 1SJ9 had beon larger than that of any preceding year, amounting to L2,19G,970 ös lOd, which was L30,398 over tho estimate made in January 1869. Thero was a decrease in many of the ordinary estimates ; hut consicrablo increases for special objects were inevitable. Regarding the debt on the deficiency loan of which L700,000 remains unpaid, as a burden that ought not to be thrown on the ordinary revenue of the year, ho proposed to ask tho House for authority to borrow at intervals as thc debentures and Treasury bills fall due, the amount of L700,000, to meet them.

The Social Science Philosophers on Colonial Mattere. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

The Social Science Philosophers on Colonial Mattere. TN alluding, in our last issue to the admirable . pamphlet of Mr. Frederick Young, in which that gentleman had submitted a definite scheme of colonisation which would bo equally advantageous to the whole British empire, we premised that there had been some other sug- gestions, of a very different character, on the part of some of our volunteer political doctors in England, to which it might be desirable to make further reference on another occasion. We take advantage of the present opportunity of doing so, and it will be seen that the previous brief and rather amusing announcement that the Social Science Association had taken entire charge of the colonial question was not without foundation. The paper read before this august body by Mr. Thomas Briggs was also alluded to in our last issue, and it is now before us, together 'with a report of thc discussion that ensued, thc whole having apparently been thought worthy of reproducing, ...

Agricultural Schools. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 February 1870

Agricultural Schools. PTIEJERE is a great dementi just now for agri cultural schools and colleges, in which the young men of the colony may bo instructed in scientific as well as iu practical farming-ia agricultural chemistry as well as in digging and delving, We do not dispute that we need such institutions. Agriculture in thc colony is in a very primitive and inefficient condi- tion; and, while all the rest of the world seems to be on the alert on matters of hus bandry, and industriously experimentalising, we are content to go on in the old humdrum stylo of operations prevalent in the good old times " when George the Third was King." Every modern continental Govern- ment is so fully sensible of the importance of agriculture, in a purely national point of view, that it has founded.and endowed institutions for the. special purpose of imparting all attain- able information on agricultural matters to the rising generation. In England there are almost numberless institutions of a partl...
