THE NORTHERN COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 28 October 1856

THE NOETHEHN COLONY. (From the Maitiand Mercury.) It seems to us that the dislike whieh must be felt by many persons in Sydney to tlie separation of Morcton Bay from this Colony, and die 'ureatioii of a northern colony— if the Herald represents public opinion, there— is founded in. misconception. The separation of different parts of one great country into distinct colonial governments, is as natural a process, as would be tiicir ulttmato federation into component parts of one great state. Bofli movements arc merely qucstiuns of time and circumstance, liach in its turn becomus a J«tural »nd desmiblo i-esult of the increasiug population and trade of the country ; and tlie complmnce with .each movement will tuereforc, jn a greater or loss fle^rcc, benefit the whole countrj', as wull as thu parte more im mediately concerned. .' . / ^.T . jFor die praofof this position, as refeiirds the fii-st movement, we need not too , beyond our own neighbourhood.
