Strana 141 - As to the wealth which the colonies have drawn from the sea by their fisheries, you had all that matter fully opened at your bar. You surely thought these acquisitions of value, for they seemed even to excite your envy; and yet the spirit by which that enterprising employment has been exercised ought rather, in my opinion, to have raised your esteem and admiration. And pray, Sir, what in the world is equal to it? Pass by the other parts, and...
Strana 141 - Whilst we follow them among the tumbling mountains of ice, and behold them penetrating into the deepest frozen recesses of Hudson's Bay and Davis's Straits, whilst we are looking for them beneath the arctic circle, we hear that they have pierced into the opposite region of polar cold, that they are at the antipodes, and engaged under the frozen serpent of the south.
Strana 256 - ... every Person or Persons who shall at any time hereafter inhabit or reside within Our said Province, shall be and are hereby declared to be free, and shall not be subject to, or be bound to obey any Laws, Orders, Statutes or Constitutions which have been heretofore made, ordered...
Strana 226 - ... quantity which they were capable of producing. But cheap corn was brought from Ireland and other places ; increasing wealth and population created an intense and extensive demand for those agricultural luxuries, which, not entering into the subsistence of farm labourers, are not expended in reproducing themselves ; and the consequence has been, that what was the barren moor, now bears crops of great value, and pays higher rents than the most fertile corn lands in England.

All who have ever landed upon the eastern shore of St Vincent's Gulf, agree as to the richness of its soil, and the abundance of its pasture.
Strana vii - Seconded by the enlarged views and accurate science of Mr. John Shaw Lefevre, Lord Stanley — as Secretary of State for the Colonies — proposed to bring in a Bill for the colonization of South Australia upon this principle. Mr. Spring Rice, on succeeding to the Colonial Department, took up the plan with his characteristic promptitude and intelligence ; and the Bill for erecting South Australia into a British Province passed the House of Commons with his sanction and support.
Strana 226 - England in the present circumstances of the country, can be proved and illustrated, not only by inductions from cases arbitrarily assumed as examples, but also by inductions from actual cases and existing facts. The moors of Lancashire could not originally have been made to grow corn, because the quantity of corn consumed by the labourers reclaiming and cultivating them, would have exceeded the quantity which they were capable of reproducing.
Strana 257 - ... and they are hereby empowered to declare all the lands of the said province or provinces (excepting only portions which may be reserved for roads and footpaths) to be public lands, open to purchase by British subjects, and to make such orders and regulations for the surveying and sale of such public lands at such price as the said Commissioners may from time to time deem expedient, and for the letting of the common of pasturage of unsold portions thereof as to the said Commissioners may seem...
Strana 256 - III. And be it further enacted, That it shall be lawful for His Majesty, His Heirs and...
