The appointment of a governor. The news of fix. Jaw key s appoint tie jul Pyeron frs a of South Australia is ust Faroe cd in time top a to Cobeil voting away Public Money m the dark. The colonial Secretary moved yesterday the second read ing of the Bill to increase the salary of the governor during next year from two thousand to three thousand pounds. Or. Fisher opposed the motion on the ground that we did nol know who the new governor was to be and the recent intelligence had not been of a character to create any great Confidence in the discretion of the Secretary for the Colo Nies. The colonial Secretary withdrew his motion rather than press it to a Divi Sion and the second Reading of the Bill is postponed to tuesday fortnight. By that time the Overland mail will probably have Zirri Ved and we shall be then in Possession of some authentic intelligence As to the person and character of the new governor. If he promises to he what he ought to be the increased salary will be voted without delay or opposition but if he should turn out to be a second or. Sawley the Colony May As Well save its Money As throw it away on so unsuitable a person. There is no disposition what Ever on the part of the colonists to stint their governor. On the contrary there is every readiness to allow him such an income As shall enable him to maintain without difficulty the style suited to her majesty s representative regard being had to the Standard of living adopted in the Colony. But it is not to be expected that the colonists should freely vote their Money for the support of a Man whom they could not respect and whose continuance in office Over them they had no reason to desire. This determination of the Council not to vote any additional salary to the governor till they know who he is to be is a significant comment on the proceedings with regard to or. Lawley s appointment. This however is not the Only action proposed to be taken by the legislature in reference to this matter. Or. Fisher has undertaken to bring the subject directly under the notice of the House we direct Atten Tion to the notices of motion in another column which stand in his name for to Day. Some technical objections May possibly be taken to the petition. There is no official notification House of any of the circumstances connected with or. Lawley s appointment and it May seem to some to be rather too assuming for the Council to lecture her majesty on the performance of her duties. But putting these technicalities aside it really seems to us that the Council will not perform its duty to the country unless it takes some suitable notice of the Gross misapplication of patronage involved in the appointment of or. Lawley. The matter is one of the gravest importance to the Colony and May much More usefully occupy the time of Hon. Members than Idle discus Sions about their privileges. A Sharp and severe remonstrance ought to be sent Home from the Colony in some shape or other or else sir George Grey May very fairly assume that we Are indifferent to insult and May be imposed on by Downing Street at pleasure. None of the apologies and excuses offered by or George Iwrey in extenuation of the appointment explain away the charge that the interest of the Colony had been grossly neglected. Or. Lawley was known to be a Gambler. He had Gam bled on the turf and he gambled in the funds. Now if there is one office better calculated to afford scope to an unscrupulous Speculator than another it is the office of governor in one of the australian colonies where Large quantities of Crown lands remain unsold and Are eagerly competed for at periodical land sales. The governor for the time Bein of this Colony can if he chooses not Only become the. Most extensive land jobber in the Market but he can completely and absolutely control that Market. He can not Only but land cheap and sell it dear but he can make it cheap and make it dear As it suits him. He has virtually the sole control Over its Price within certain limits. He can keep the Market Well supplied or he can keep it Bare or he can overload it. No one can interfere with his prerogative in this respect. If or. Lawley had arrived Here with his speculative propensities he could easily have possessed himself in a few years of a Fortune that would quite have compensated for his earlier losses on the turf and if he had played his cards with Ordinary cunning and availed him self of the assistance of some subservient and unscrupulous agents of whom unfortunately there Are always too Many to be found he might have defied any open conviction of fraud and laughed the in ii nation of the colonists to scorn. And to. Please the Duke of Newcastle sir George Grey would have placed our in Vai Abie land fund at the me by of a Speculator. Against the Duke of new Castle too there is a heavy charge to bring for with him the appointment in reality originated. He knew that a new Constitution was to be soon conferred on this Colony in common with the neighbouring settlements a Constitution inaugurating the important Prin Ciple of responsible government. He being a statesman must have known therefore that the next few years would be most critical in the history of the Colony that the new. Constitution would prove for weal or woe most important in its effects he ought to have considered therefore that there never was a time when the interests of the Colony More imperatively required that the Man at the. Head of its affairs should be a Man of prudence of sagacity of experience. But instead of appointing such a Man he does not hesitate to hand us Over to the guidance of a dashing and accomplished Young Gambler. One remark of sir George Grey s in his apology is Worth notice. He intimated that he was unable to guide himself in his Choice by any expression of wish on e part of the cok Lonist themselves As they skat Exi pressed no preference for any., particular person. What nonsense this / Isu of course we had not chosen any one As governor because we were in utter ignorance whether sir Henry Young was to be removed. But if sir George Grey is really sincere in his statement let him if he is in office at the time the next vacancy occurs in the governor ship of the Colony give us timely notice of it and ask our. Advice. We will undertake to say that we will choose a better Man than or. Lawley. The Danube. The subjoined interesting particulars of the circumstances connected with Captain Parker s death will be found interesting ? tha town or Village of sni inn of Mouth of the i la tube is almost surrounded by Jujj glut o co where stockade had been formed for tha defence by the enemy. Thes reels Are of High tint they conceal both m a and horses from the View of any o in ascend Uig the Stream by a boat and furnish facilities for a stubborn and wily enemy to harass troops whom he is unable to meet in the Field. After the capture of Salina last month it was thought that the Yussum had entirely left the Vicinity and a degree of Confidence or negligence was inspired which has terminated most us fortunately. It appears that so far from Tho enemy having neighbourhood Thev have never ceased to occupy the Jungle which lines Uio Banks of the River and have waited for their Opportunity to revenge the off hand capture of this important Point. On Friday 7th of this month Captain Parker of the firebrand was ascending the River in his gig. And at some distance behind was another boat of the same vessel and Captain Powell of the Vesuvius in a third. The excursion seems to have been entirely unconnected with any warlike object and so completely was the presence of an enemy unexpected that the chaplain Ami the surgeon of the. Firebrand were in the boat with the Captain. As the first boat came abreast of a stockade supposed to have been Long deserted a Shower of Musket balls Wos poured in from an us sue enemy. No one was struck but a Ball passed through the sur Geon s coat and one or two others narrowly escaped. The boat immediately put Back to obtain the assistance of Tho others Ami Cap Tain Parker and Bis companions were disposed to treat the matter very lightly Laii no atthe russians for not being a Stour shots. Cap Tain Powell with the other bouts came up almost immediately the sailors rowed for the stockade and Captain Parker sprang on Shore to Lead the attack. He had made but few Steps when he was Matiuck through the heart with a Musket Ball and Feir dead. Powell then took the command and in a few minutes had driven the enemy from their stronghold the russians however made a Brave Resis Tance. An Eye witness declares that Tho Only two of the enemy to be seen at first were a couple of officers who stood calmly at the Embra sures of the stockade and were picked off by the English solders while directing their men where to fire. Indeed the accounts of a our encounters with the rus sians mention the same fact of the Devotion a Bra wry of the muscovite officers who literally drag on their men by the Collar or f rce them into tha fire with the pouts of their swords. The unfortunate c meander who fell in tins affair was one of Tho youngest list captains in the Navy. He had it is said just completed his 29th year. He was the son of Admiral Hyde Parker late one of the lords of the admiralty. Belonging to a family in distinguished in the naval annals of this country he gave Promise of equalling and of his race in services to his co entry the following is an extract from a letter written by an fish officer Servin in tiie Black sea Fleet to his relatives in Dublin Sulina july 3. And now i must give Vou a Little of our doings Here of late. Iler majesty s ship firebrand Captain Hyde Parker senior officer commanding the blockade of the Danube proceeded from fcuhnaon21st june for Tho Northern month coasting along the shores of Bessarabia with the Vesuvius steam Corvette commander 1 Owell and a Small turkish Steamer Ulm a his command. A about eight Miles above the Northern Mouth of the in Iliia Branch of the Danube the vessels anchored got out boat and made preparations for attacking a Cossack station situated on a elevated Sand Promontory. Then Iny noticing Al ,. Manoeuvre made preparations for defence stationing themselves under Over of a breast work or Ridge of Earth very did Hertely resting their Long fuzes on the top to air aft Tho approach of the boats which had shoved off from the ships. As at All stations Alor this Lone coast., they had Here a tall signal Post and some cossacks were observed busying themsclve3 at it and presently a flame arose and ran up Tho Post causing a dense Lack smoke which continued for some time in a moment we observed ail the posts smok ing As far As the Eye could reach and thus the intelligence of the attack was probably known at Odessa eighty Miles off in almost As Many second. A Well directed fire from Tho firebrand s 96-Poumler disliked a Clu i of Earth Aud Sand Over the follows behind thu breast work which caused them quickly to Decamp and take to horse with All sp.-and As they dashed across the level i their Speed _ was increased by an occasional shot dipping among them. The boats landed a Thouc opposition Ami having fire i ,ll0 Barracks stables and military stows which were extensive returned to their ships he buildings being mostly cons ruched of Wood blazed up like a match Box and in Brief time were totally a a Steed. Next morning we proceeded and about 7 o clock anchored before another co sick station having a strongly built Blockhouse and stables of great extent Tain a consider Ime. Cavalry depot we saw but few me. Here and Obser Vul that the Post was charred Black having been tha previous. Evening so the Fellows were expecting a and made their arrangements according some shots were fired into the build inv which caused a few Fellows to so Miner of before our boats Ian led. that some of the enemy had posted themselves behind a Ridge running Between the Bucich and a Lake behind a boat with a 12-Poundhnwitzsr was directed to Cut off their Retreat to Tho southward whilst the other boats attacked Tho Northern end and Barracks they observed this and in a few minutes began to make the Best of their Way before the boat reached Tho narrow uncovered Rise their Only Retreat. They marked the time very closely and dashed past to a More secure and Well covered position behind an elevated Sandhill where they halted but were soon obliged to Cut off again a few shells and round shot from the howitzer making the place too hot for them. One Cossack fell from his Horae killed by a Minig Ball at a distance of at least 400 Yarls. Two of his companions lashed the body on to a horse and carried him off. This place was also burned with bar Racks stables stores and munitions of War for 200 men and horses. Two other stations were attacked and destroyed the same evening in a similar manner but night coming on ? we returned and res med our blockade � Sulina next Day. All these operations were planned ind executed with the Greate St judgment decision Anc Energy reflecting thu highest Redit on the Coin Mauder.

Stephens had intended to have asked the Hon. The advocate general a ques Tion but in his absence would put it to the Han. Tie collector of customs. It was As follows whether under the act of the Imperial parliament relating to the certificates required by captains of merchant vessels they shall take command of ships carrying passengers any Power exists in this province to demand the production of such certificates and to hold an enquiry into the character Aud conduct of such captains with a View to cancel such certificates. And in the event of no such Power extending to this province whether any proceedings can be taken in Law against any Captain conveying passengers to this Colony who shall have con ducted himself in a grossly immoral manner a Well As proved himself otherwise unfit to can Tiu such command. The collector of customs was not aware of any such Power existing in the Colony. ? ? vat a later part of the proceedings the advocate general stated that he would answer the question on the following this Day. Appropriation Bill. The colonial Secretary moved the second Reading of the appropriation Bill. All the resolutions involving the expenditure of the Revenue which had been discussed in committee and affirmed by the Council were embodied in that Bill except the amount of the governor s salary which required a separate Bill in consequence of its being necessary that it should receive the Sanction of the Home government. ? the speaker called the attention of Tho Hon.

He thought it would not to desirable to pass the appropriation Bill till other Bills affecting Tho interests of the Colony had been introduced. Trie Council contemplated passing this session a Slit Billii burning Bill corporation Bill District councils amendment Bill and Ether measures. But As he never wished to oppose the government unnecessarily to did not feel disposed to take upon himself the responsibility of moving an amendment.
