MR. R. HILL'S POSTAGE PLAN. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Australian — 2 October 1839

I Mn. R. HILL'S POSTAGE PLAN. IT has been announced, in a manner which is re ceived as official, that Mr. Spring Rice is prepared to accede to the universa! wish of the country in the adoption of an uniform penn»-, postage, payable in advance, according to the plan recommended by Mr. Rowland Hill. We have ail along advocated this plan, from the first publication of the evidence taken before the committee of the House of Commons, be cause we therein found a clear demonstration cf u h evils inflicted by the old system asno argument drawn from expediency could justify ; and because, further, it was equally certain that an immense benefit to the whole community must result from the measure re commended. Into such questions it would be utterly repugnant to reason and common sense to allow party feeling for a moment to enter, and our convic t on is that w h »te ver ministry Lad been in power, it was impossible for them to resist such an appeal, or to delay acting upon it a moment longer t...

They carried out upwards of 2,300 emigrants, and in addition they took out as much freight as could be stowed in them. The amount of goods landed in the colony may be taken to weigh about one half of the registered ton nage ; the rest being water, &c, consumed upon the passage. Of the weight landed, almost all would go forwaid to the capital. The imports from other places appear, by -Mr. Gouger's statement, to equal those from Europe,, comparing the registered tonnage only ;* but as neither emigrants nor provisions for a long voyage occupy the ships in ibis case, ic may be safe to take the freight as equal at least to the register.
