THE IRISH MUNICIPAL BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 2 January 1839

THE IRISH MUNICIPAL BILL. :Mr.- Grattan, Ml. Y , has addressed the -following letter to the Naticual Trades ePolitical.Union : ".Glenwood, Rathdrum, Aug. 6. " Gentlemen,-As a member of your body I exercise'the privilege of addressing you. We had the honour of being the first .in Ireland who resented the insult offered to our country, when to the charge that we -were 'aliens' we -replied with the con tempt it deserved. Another insult is now -offered to Ireland from the same body and under the same auspices. The corporation bill has been converted into an instrument of fraud and oppression. It is our-duty as Irishmen, it is our especial duty as citizens -of Dublin, to enter our decided -protest against this measure. Be assured that, if -once passed, it will not be easily repealed. " We tried to mend our bad-reform bill, and we failed; and as long as the House of Peers are ' lords of the ascendant,' a good measure may be repealed, a bad measure may be.made worse, but a measure that abr...

LAEaTrAXsLa Et's.osiwN.-On Tuedisy afternoon, about four o'clock, a most la asentable explosion -of gunpowder took place in the outbuildings, belonging to Mr. `Harrison, who is a shopkeeper-and farmer, at Hartington, in Derbyshire, by which 'three persons -two men and a boy-were killed. Mr. Harrison was accustomed to heep his stock .of gunpowder -in a barn near his house, whence quantities were 'taken for sale in his shop. His stock at 4he time of the explosion was about 1 cwt. The place where the powder was deposited -wss known to a lad in Mr. Harrison's ser vice, who it appears had been accustomed *to pilfer it for the purpose of making -squibs, cc. ; and in so doing had scat tered some on the ground on leaving-the place. On Tuesday afternoon, as Mr. Harrison's son a (fine young man), his nephew, and the servant Ind, were standing 'near the 'barn, young Mr. Harrison ob " serving some powder on the ground, re marked, " We will have a fiz."

English Extracts. CnUaRAcrn OF ToEs 1 D1wrnopoT.ITAN PoruL.arzuz.-A very important doiutment has. just been published-a return movrd for by Mr Hawes of "A Copy of the Report of the Su1.eriutendent of Police in Hyde P.ark to the Commissioners of Police, on tbe.day of Her Majesty's Coronation.'" It is. remarkable, as.sbewing in the most unquestionable manner. the good conduct of the people of the metropolis. In a. mul titude larger than ever was g&thlwrcd together in.London' there was no rioting, no offensive scenes of drunkenness, and. Juring the day, only twenty persons were taken. into, custody and conveyed to the station. They consisted of seven pi, k pockete, one felon (only apprehended. in the fai", for the act was committed some - time before), and twelve persons ch mrg d" with eausbling. It is, perhaps, not over stepping the limits of truth, to say that two thirds of the poptu'ation of the me tropolis were at one time or another in the fair; and yet, on a.day of genera...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser. December 26th, 1838. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 2 January 1839

TO TIE EDITOR OP THE Sydney Monitor and Commercial Adsertiler. December 26th, 1838. Sin-As you will probably be taking some notice of "Mr. Gregory's Report.' extracted in your paper of 24th instant' from the Colonial Times, I hope you will' avail yourself of the opportunity to ani madvert on the strange conduct of the. Home Government with regard to the' silver coinage. Mr. Gregory says " I con sider it-to be of paramount importance to, the interests of the Colony, that British sjuede alone, should form the circulating' medium of its transactions; for whatever doubts may exist as to the mode of con ducting the operations of a mint in South America, we have the highest and moat unquestionable security., against every possible abuse in that of Great Britain." The old silver coinage was of 62 shillings to the pound weight in silver, one twelfth alloy. The present coinage with the same alloy is of 66 shillings to the pound weight. The old coinage left a very small profit to the mint, th...

NEWS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 2 January 1839

NEWS OF TH.E DAY. It is said that a new Sydney firm holds a commis. sion fronm a London house. to purchase colonial wools to the extent of £10,000. and at is figure a shade higher than the other Sydney buyers are dis posed to purchase at, it being, in the opinion of the latter, unwarranted by the last London wool sales. From whatever cause, it certainly appears, (the last sales remembered) that those of our settlers, who have sold their wool this season, hlve obtained prices with which they have every reason to be in good temper. CRowN LAND FUND.-The mories arising from Crown Lands by their sales, letting, &c. &c &c. during the year 1831 to 1837 both inclusive, we understand, amount to about £440,000, while the expenses of the Surveyor General's Depart ment, Ab-sorigines, Missions, Commissioners of Dis puted Titles, &c. &c. &c. amount to rather better than half that sum Yesterday morning, a young horse attached to a baker's covered car...

A Free Port. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 2 January 1839

A Free Port. The Singapore Free Press, of the 10th May, contains the following singular no tification. " No Duties on Imports.nor Exports; no Port Charges on Vessels. We question whether all taxes laid on vessels or on imports or exports, such as ad valorem and other duties, pilotage, wharf charges &c.; &c.,-are;not Implihtic taxes. Taxes must be raised by some means or other, to support the expense of Government, in its three branches, Legis lative, Judicial, and Executive. But one single tax on income or ott property, or both, would perhaps be the best mode of rai-ing funds to defray the expense of Go vernment. (This opinion gains ground in Europe). And in order to make the rate of the tax light, it would be-desirable to pay salaries of only such amount, as would command the talent integrity and applica tion to bu-iness, necessary to discharge the duties of all public offices and departments from the Governordownwards, but no more. The Americans pay the Heads of De...
