5. What remedy have the Editors and the Public under the two new acts? [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

- 5. What remedy have the Editors and the Public under the two new-acts 2 TaE people of the Colony will be apt to consider the two new acts of Council as a question which concerns Editors, rather than themselves.' But " the begining of " strife is as when one letteth out water". The same disposition which has promoted our - ruin, will not sleep. The Colonists ought to feel our cause to be their own. If they do not, they will rue their selfish ness. By taking up our cause as their own, they may perhaps crush the buddings of a system which may end in a censorship on the Press; and some of these days when all is still, and the voice of the people is stifled by law, under pain of banishment from their homes and their property, they will be made to feel that our cause was theirs. We are conscious that if a public meeting were to be called, the first class of our society would not attend. The aristocracy of every nation is with the chief Ruler on all popular grievances, either from fear o...

Rural Ride, continued from Page 395. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

Rural Ride, continued from Page 395. 'FRoMK Heytesbury to Warminster is a part of the country singularly bright and beautiful. 'From Salisbury up to very near Heytesbury, you have the valley, as before described by mne. Meadows next the water; then arable land; then .the "dowins; but, when you come to Heytesbury, and indeed, a little before, in looking forward you see the vale stretch out, from about three miles wide to ten miles wide, from high land to high land. From a hill before you come down to Heytes. bury, you see through this wide opening into Somersetshire. You see a round hill rising in the middle of the opening; but all the rest a flat enclosed country, and apparently full, of wood. In looking back down this vale one cannot help being struck with the innuimerable proofs that there are of a decline in point of population. In the first place, there are twenty four parishes, each of which takes a little strip across the valley, and runs up through the arable land into the do...

1. The effects of the new Tax on the Proprietors of our Colonial Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

1. The..effects of the new Tax on the Proprietors of our Colonial Newspapers. Tawo effects on the Editors of the present Newspapers, unless the patriotism of the people of this land be exerted with 'Roman energy, (which we think and believe how ever will be the case) will be the destructior of all their profits. Editors are the only men in the Colony who live by literature. They support their families by the weekly exertion of their literary powers. In all coun trigs, .civilized or savage, literary men dre considered' objects in a certain measure of popular respect d applause--i barbarous countries and infant co -ies your, plain prose writers .and pamphleteers are tbe. fore-runners of poets and meataphysicians and philo .ophers and scavans of all kinds-therefore, the.ugh hum. ble in their pretensions, still, as the germof better things as the soil and seed of higher degrees of ihtellect, an infant people look on them with satisfaction, so long as virtue and patriotism regulate their...

2. The inequity of the Tax. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

2. r The inequity of the Tax. TAXES to defray the salaries of Rulers, and the gene ral expenses of the State, are necessary. But the people who:are to have the benefit of Government, are allowed by the.glorious Constitution of Old England to be the judges of what portion of their nroney shall go to the said Rulers-what expenses shall be incurred-in kind too as well as amount-mind-iri kind. Thus, to take from Messrs. Howe, Wardell, and Hall, three seve ral eight hundred pounds a-year, and give them to three Commissioners for vsluing Crown Lands who as yet have' never valued any, is what we do not call equitable. Or to give it in aid of funds, out of which, in conjunction with the colonial fund at Whitehall, the salary of an Archdeacon of the Australiantthirchi, to whom 5001. or at most a thousand a-year, would be an abundant remu neration for the benefit the people of this land receive from his labours-this appears to us, also, to be inequi table. WE are not going to blame the Govern...

6. Conclusion. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

6. C?nclusion. ALTUOUGH affording comparative consolation to feel assured our gracious Sovereign will remove General Darling long before another year expires, and that it is probable another Governor* will annul the new gagging Acts the moment he arrives in the Colony, yet there is no calculating how much the Mother Country may be injured- by these Colonial uproars. The ill blood occa sioned in these Colonies by the measures of the present administration it is quite deplorable to reflect upon. "'Tis true we shall soon be pleased again. A little-a very little j'ustice and kindness will soon bring us about. The Mother Country is dear to us. It is the land of our Fa thers. It is the land of light and liberty-of religion and benevolence-of science and the arts. It is the land of our birth. But our children are growing up. It is not the land of their birth. Australia is their country. It is not to be expected that they will pass by the grievances * There is a faint report in Town that Lo...

3. The most probable intention of the new Tax divined. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

3. The most probable intention of the new Tax divined. IN order to discover the intention of any tax, we must not go altogether by the professions of the tax-makers. The latter will always declare themselves actuated by legitimate ;motives; but if these declarations are really contradicted by facts, we have a right to question either the heads or hearts of the tax-makers, if not both. Because our Legislators have not been chosen by the people. Because they have been selected by our gracious Sovereign on- account of their exalted rank. Because that the favour shewed them in endowing them with goodly lands and salaries has been to an extent truly royal and munificent ; Therefore-therefore were they bound by the greater ties to execute justice and equity amongst this people. Precious should our liberties and money be in the sight of those whom God and their King have placed above the temptations of envy, revenge, and ava rice. Precious should the profits of those few men of intellect i...

.WEL.INGTON BREWERY. PAYNE'S COLODNIAL .B'ER." TriHE degided preference hitherto given to this article by a liberal and discriminating Public, whereby a constunp tion far superior to that of all the other Breweries in the Colony put together has always been secured to it, renders it unnecessary to resort to extraordinary measures in order to enhance its value.

4. The unconstitutionality of the New Tax. [Newspaper Article] — The Monitor — 11 May 1827

4. The unconstitutiondlity of the New Tax. WE believe no such law 'hrs been enacted in the Canadas-which are most assimilated to New South Wales.. Though as a King's colony, without any mixture in our population of foreigners, we are still more com pletely English than. North America. According to Blackstone,' the common law of England, and such portions of the Statute law as will apply to our.situation, are, as of course, in full force here; so that no special declaratory Act of Parliament was or is required to make them so. All restrictions.on the press, are contrary to the spirit of Magna Charta. The six gagging acts of Castlereagh, in imitation of which, the last Order in Council but one is made, are about to expire. They were so hostile to the. Constitution, as to cause Parlia ment to limit their duration, in hopes Carlisle, Spence, and other beastly Deists and most illiberal and bigotted blasphemers, would all either be dead, or in jail for debt or crime, and so have become in...
