THE most objectionable feature In the *Land Regulations in this Colony is, un ! doubtedly, the high minimum price of 20s. ' an ácre. This system has been considered * io have brought much evil on the Colony ; and that it must shortly undergo a change* : there seems but little question. This high; f price has certainly the ádvahiage of putting a stop to land-jobbing, speculation, and monopoly ; but doeB it not equally put a s'op 'o wholesome and bona fide laud sales in this Colony ? Ia if hot this very high ? price that gives an impetus to the outcry of tHe great Squatters ? .* Gi ve ns fixity of tenure ! Gite us leases for twenty-one years !" Arid what would be the result ? Why, that these very men would get pos session of ali the] uhlocated- lands within Mieir reach for that period ; which they woulid immediately ;£ub«let to those wbo 'ought to become purchasers, arid doubtless would if die price of lànd was as low as it oliight to be.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 24 July 1845

i VARIETIES. HINTS TO LOVERS OP PLANTS.-A most beautiful and easily attained show pf evergreens in winter may he had by a simple plan, which has been found to answer remarkably well on a small scale. If geranium branches are taken from healthy and luxuriant trees just before the winter sets in, cut as for slips, and immersed in soap and water, they will, after drooping for a few days, shed their leaves, put forth fresh ones, and continue tn the finest vigour all the win ter. By placing a number of bottles thus filled in flower baskets, with moss to conceal the bottles, a show of ever greens is eastiy ensured for a whole season. They require no fresh water.

THE SQUATTING QUESTION CONSIDEERD. (No. 6.) [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 24 July 1845

?THIi SQUATTING QUESTION CONSIDEERD. , (No. 6.) ^WE stated in our last publication, willi re-. gard to tliis subject, that we considered " ös. per acre ought to be the maximum price of land in New South Wales ; and " wc have no doubt that such will yet be 'the case if proper measures be adopted. It must not be forgotten thatthe"minimum 1 price of 20s. per acre was fixed by an Act * of Parliament, commonly known as ' Lord Stanley's Act' ; arid that it xs not in the 1 * power of the Governor to interfere with ' that measure. He'may recommend ; but : it is the duty of the Colonists to act for * themselves, and to call on their representa Hivës to co-operate "with them in petition ing the Imperial Paj-liament to repeal so fmuch of that Act as fixes the minimum 'price of Crown lands at áGs. pei acre The natural result of a reduction of that **pr:ce to something like 4s. or Ss. will, we conceive, be the revival of imlnigration, and the influx to these colonies of a vast amount of redundan...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 24 July 1845

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS, The Theresa, prison ship, from England, arrived at Hobart Town. From the papers of the latter place we select the following extracts :-The debate on the conduct of Lord Stanley took place on the 18th March, and a very dull affair it was. The subject was narrowed down to a very .simple ques tion-Did His Loréship deceive the New Zealand Company as to the nature of the instructions he had given" tô' Governor Fitzroy ? From- that simple charge the noble Lord was cleared, and from the tenor of Sir R. Peel's speech, it was thought he had materially injured the cause of the Gompany. The motion on which the debate took place was merely a formal one for the production of papers. A petition, sign ed by 115 of the leading Firms of London, had been presented to the House, praying that some definite arrangements respecting New Zealand might be come to, and it was understood that a further discussion would take place immediately after Easter.
