PHENOMENA.
in the year1856, there will be two Eclipses of the Sun, and two
the Moon: of these, will be visible in Ceylon:

tPartial Eclipse of the Moon, October 13th,


First contact with the Shadow at Colombo, will he at 14h. 41m. (2h.
41m. A.M. of the 14th, Civil time.)
Last contact with the Shadow will be at 5h, em., nearly sunrise of
the 14th, Civil time.

COLOMBO TIME.
Ceylon being so far towards the East or Sun-rising, it is already mid-day
here when it is morning in England. The day here is farther advanced
than at Greenwich 5 hours 19 minutes and 33 seconds, which must therefore be added to the time in England to give the time here.
The quantities given under the head "Sun's Declination" are to the
nearest minute, and those under "Equation of Time" to the nearest
second. By these data, with the use of a pocket sextant, the time may
be readily obtained to within four seconds. Those whose objects require
greater accuracy will most probably be provided with a Nautical Almanac.

account of the Ca'Unbar.


The JULIAN or commoN CIVIL YEAR* is that which is employed in chronology. This
is in effect a solar year, commonly containing a certain number of whole days, the
odd hours and minutes being set aside to render the computation of time in the common
concerns of life more easy, and consists of 365 days or lamonths, 1 day ; or 52 week,
I day, for three years together ; but every fourth year a day (or in the four years
6 hours for each year) being added to February, it then contains 366 days ; this is
called bissextile or leap year, consequently the mean Julian year, will be 365 days
6 hours.
The MEAN SOLAR, ASTRONOMICAL, TROPICAL, NATURAL, Or EQUINOCTIAL YEAR is the
true standard of time, and is the period of time in which the earth perform,
revolution about the sun, or passes from the first point of Aries to the same. firs
point of Aries again; and has been assumed, according to Bessel (see Connaissance
des Temps, 1831, Additions, p. 154.), equal to 366242213 mean solar days--=3654,
5/s. 4/3m. 47.6352s.
Although the Julian method of intercalation is perhaps the most convenient that
could be adopted ; yet, as the science of astronomy advanced the length of the
astronomical year was found to be shorter than the Julian correction supposes b
I lea. 12.3648s., it could not, without correction, very long answer the purpose lo
which it was devised, namely, that of preserving always the same interval of tim
between the commencement of the year and the equinox, and thus would a degre
of confusion be introduced into the relative divisions of the year, and be pro
ductive of great inconvenience: at length it was discovered that an error of one da
Id ; r)
too much would take place in 129 years (for as 1 I et. 12 3648s : I year
but in the time of Cressr the length of the year was an astronomical element
very well determined. In the course of a few centuries, however, the equinox s
sibly retrograded towards the beginning of the year in consequence of the preces:
of the equinoxes. When the Julian calendar was introduced, the equinox fell on
25th of March ; at the time of the Council of Nice, which was held Artno Doe
325, it fell on the 21st of March. This imperfection of the calendar was noti
as early as the time of the Venerable Bede ; but the reformation of it did
take place till many centuries after Petrus ab Alliaco and emu, two learned Ca
nabs, not only pointed out these imperfections to the Councils of Constance
Lateran, but suggested the means for its correction ; and in A. D. 1474,
Sixtus the I rth engaged Regiomontanus, an eminent mathematician, in this 1
of reform, though from the circumstance of the death of Regiomontanus the r
ject was not carried into effect. And when the reformation was made, in
the equinox had retrograded to the 1 1 th of March ; therefore, in order to m
the calendar more correct, Pope Gregory the XI Ilth invited C/arrlls and Ciacon
the most celebrated astronomers and mathematicians of the age, with others,
superintend the reconstruction of the calendar : they having found that by
introduction of the bissextile days, a difference had arisen of ten days bets
the calendar and actual time, owing to the odd minutes and seconds which
bissextile year occasioned the calendar to exceed the true period of the s
progress, the Pope then issued a brief, in the month of March 1582, in wl
he abolished the use of the ancient calendar. And in order to restore the co
mencement of the year to the same place in the seasons that it had occin
at the time of the Council of Nice, Gregory directed the day following the f
of St. Francis, that is to say, the 5th of October, to be reckoned the I Ott
that month. By this regulation the vernal ectitnox, which now happened on
11th of March, was restored to the 21st. This last amendment of the cater
having taken place under the direction of Pope Gregory Me XI I Ith, was, out
respect to him, called the Gregorian or New Style, in opposition to the Jo
Or Old Style, and wallas been adopted by almost every Christian nation.
Gregorian Style was immediately acceded to by all those parts of Europe wl
were under the papal authority, but the Protestants adhered to the Julian S
with obstinate pertinacity ; and the Protestants of Germany have the credit
having first rectified such inconsistency, by throwing eleven days out of I
calendar in 1706 ; while it is worthy of remark, that the Russians, regardles

The first Julian year commenced with rho first of January of the 46th before the birth of C
and 78 from the foundation of the city of Roam.

propriety, still adhere to the Julian style, and therefore, by another centurial leapyear having occurred, viz. in the year 1800, they now differ from us 12 days in
their date of time. Now as the error of the Julian intercalation was found to
amount to three days in 400 years, he ordered intercalations to be omitted on all
the centenary years, excepting those which are multiples of 400. According to the
Gregorian rule of intercalation, therefore, to know when it is bissealile or leap
year, divide the year by 4, and the remainder spews how long it is after leap
year ; if nothing remains it is leap year, excepting the centurial years, which are
only leap years when divisible by 4 after suppressing the two zeros. Thus 1600
and 2000 are leap years, because 16 and 20 are divisible by 4 ; but 1700, 1800,
and 1900 are common years, and so on, because 17, 18, and 19 are not divisible
by 4, but these would have been leap years by the Julian calendar. As the
Gregorian method of intercalation has been adopted in all Christian countries,
Russia excepted, it becomes interesting to examine with what degree of accuracy
it reconciles the civil with the solar year ; therefore the only thing in the correction of the calendar that requires a high degree of mathematical science is the
determination of the length of the astronomical year ; yet this has never been perfectly
ascertained. Ilad the mean astronomical year been more accurately determined
in the time of Julius Ctesar, the Julian correction would, probably, have superseded
the necessity of the Gregorian. Although the Gregorian calendar is far preferable to
the Julian, yet it is not without its defects (perhaps, as Tycho Brahe and Cassini imagine, it is impossible ever to bring the calendar to a perfect justness). According to
the latest determinations of modern astronomy, the mean solar year consists of
365 d. 5 h. 48 m. 47.6362 s., or 365'242218 d. Now the Gregorian rule gives 97
intercalations in 400 years ; 400 years therefore contain 363 x 400 +97=146097
days, and consequently one year contains 365'2425 days or 365d. 5A. 49m. 12s.
This exceeds the true solar year by 24'3648 seconds, which amount to a day in
5346 years ; for as 2-1'3618 a. : 1 gear : I d. a'. It is perh4s unnecessary to
make any formal provision against an error which can only happen after so long
a period of time; but as 11546 differs little from 4000, it has been proposed to
correct the Gregorian rule by making the year 4000 and all its multiples common
years. With this correction the rule of intercalation is as follows :Every year,
the number of which is divisible by 4, is a leap year, excepting the last year of
each century, which is a leap year only when the number of the century is
divisible by 4 ; but 4000, and its multiples, 8000, 12000, 16000, &c., are common
years. Thus the uniformity of the intercalation by continuing to depend on the
number 4, is preserved ; and by adopting the last correction the commencement
would not vary more than a day from its present place in 31250 years. For as
the Gregorian intercalation gives 97 days in 400 years, consequently in 4000 years
970 days would be intercalated ; but one day is now omitted at the end of every
4000 years, therefore only 969 days are intercalated, consequently the civil year
will be 36.1 d. -F =365 24225 d 363 d. Sh. 48m. 50.4 s. ; but this exceeds the
mean solar year by 2.7648 seconds. and it would require 31250 years to make
the beginning of the civil and tropical year be a day apart, for as 2'7684 s. : 1
year : I d. : x.
From the year 1582 to 1700 the difference between the old and new style continued to be ten days; but 1700 being a leap year in the Julian calendar, and
a common year in the Gregorian, the difference of the styles during the eighteenth
century was 11 days. The year 1800 was also common in the new calendar, and
consequently the difference in the present century is twelve days, and so will contiaue till the year 1900, and from 1900 to 2100 will be thirteen days, and at
every centesimal year, which is not exactly divisible by 4, will be an increase of
one day more, excepting 4000 and its multiples. In Great Britain the alteration from
the old to the new style ufas for a long time successfully opposed by popular
prejudice. but the inconvenience had keen so generally felt in matters of history
and chronology, that at length, in 1751, an Act of Parliament was passed fur
the adoption of the new style in the year following, in all public and legal transactions under the crown. The difference of the two styles, which then amounted
to eleven days, was removed by ordering the day following the 2nd of September
of the year 1752 to be accounted the 14th of that month, whereby that month
consisted of only nineteen days : and in order to preserve uniformity in future the
Gregorian rule of intercalation respecting the secular years was adopted.
The SIDEREAL or ASTRAL YEAR is the time elapsed from the sun's quitting a
particular fixed star to its return to the same fixed star again, and it exceeds the solar
year by 20 na. 199561 s., making the sidereal year 365 d. 6 h. 9m. 7'5913 s.; this
difference is called the precession or retrograde motion of the equinoxes, by which

the fixed stars gain about .501 seconds in right ascension every year ; consequently
the length of a sidereal year can then be determined by no method more obvious or more correct than this:
As 360 deg. 50-i s. : 365 4. 5h. 48 tn. 47.6332 s. : 360 deg. : 363 d. 6 h. 9 m.
7.5913 e.
The ANOMALISTIC YEAR 4s the interval whch is occupied by the sun in passing
from apogee to apogee. or from perigee to perigee ; it is greater than the sidereal
year by the time required to describe the annual progres-ion of the apogee : now
the progression of the apogee (its increase of longitude) being 11.8 seconds, therefore the anomalistic year is complete when the sun has described 360 deg. 1.1 m. 118. a.
Hence to find the length of an anomalistic year
As 360 deg. : 363 4. 6 h. 9 m. 7-3913 a. : : 360 deg. 0711.11.8 s. ; 365 d. 6 h. 13 in.
54'9263 s.
Therefore the anomalistic year is longer than the sidereal by 4 nt. 47.335 s., and
longer than the equinovial by 2.5 rn. 7-2911 a.
apparent or true time is that which is denoted by the sun-dial, from the apparent
motion of the sun, and differs several minutes in certain parts of the ecliptic from
the mean time, or that shewn by the clock. The diftrence is called the equation of time and is set down in the almanac in order to ascertain the true time.
This irregularity is produced by two principal causes, viz. the obliquity 04 the
ecliptic to the equator, and the eccentricity of the earth's orbit, and by the
small deviations from elliptical motion produced by the moon end planets.
A lunar month or synodic revolution of the moon is the time between two consecutive conjunctions of the moon, called the change or new moon. This period varies
considerably, in consequence of the variation of the eccentricity of the moon's orbir.
A mean lunation is. according to Laplace, 294. 12 h. 44 in. 2.8032 s., and the
excess in each year is 1 I days. from which the epact or moon's age at the commencement of ad! year may be found ; and this is used for finding the moon's
age at any time in the year.
A day is that portion of time in which the earth makes one complete revolution on its axis, and is measured by the interval between two successive transits of any fixed star over the same meridian. The civil day is reckoned from
one midnight to another, being divided into two periods of hours counted from
one to twelve, twice over, among the ancient Egyptians and Romans, with modern
English, Dutch, Germans, Spaniards, and Portuguese ; but in astronomical calculations, the day is always supposed to begin at noon, and to end ut the noon of the
following day, the hours being reckoned up to 24. Therefore, if civil time be P.M.
it agrees with astronomical time ; but if the civil time is A. M., add 12 hours to it,
and the suns will be the corresponding astronomical time of the preceding day.

The Hebrew year is reckoned from the Creation, in lunar years consisting of
12 lunar months of 29, days each and From new moon to new moon. The
Jewish year in general contains 854 days.
The idahomedan era commences with the introduction of the Maliomedan religion by Mehemet. Their year, like that of the Jews, consists generally of 354
days.
The Chinese divide the night and day into twelve equal parts, beginning their
reckoning from midnight. Hence their hours are double the length of ours.
The common Chinese year consists of twelve lunar months and their intercalary
year has thirteen. Their months have no subdivision, that is, they have no weeks,
Their common way of dating is by the day of the month and the year of the
reigning Emperor. As for example, AN of the sixth moon in the 12th year of
the Kia -King.
The moon with which their year commences, is that which falls nearest to the
fifteenth degree of Aquarius, corresponding to the 3d or 4th of February.
The Chinese have no particular days for religious worship. Their great festival
is the first of the year, on which day they shut up their shops, dress in their best
clothes, and pay visits.

Das- of Clacesicision, or New YEAR'S DAY.This day was kept as a festival
by the Greeks in celebration of the completion of the Sun's annual course, and by the
Romans in honor of their god Janus. The Day of Circumcision was instituted
in the Christian Church A. D. 487, and introduced into the English Lie.rgy in 15511
in commemoration of the Circumcision of our Lord Jesus Christ, eight days alter
his Nativity.
EPIPHANY, TWELPTH-DAY, Or OLD CHRISTMAS Day,is kept as a festival throughout
Christendom in commemoration of the manifestation of the Lord Jesus Christ
upon earth. Antiently it was celebrated as the Feast of the Nativity during twelve
days, namely, from Christmas unto the 12th day onwards. The first and last of these
days were denominated the greater and lesser Epiphany. The first, on account of
the Lord Jesus having on that day assumed the human form ; and the second, on
account of the appearance of the star which conducted the Wise men from the East
to Bethlehem, there to worship the infant Saviour.
CANDLEMAS DAY, PURIFICATION of the VIRGIN ZVI A RY,W8.9 antiently called the day
of Christ's Presentation ; and is still kept as a solemn festival in memorial of the
humiliation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who whilst submitting to the Law that
enjoined personal purification after childbirth, presented the infant Jesus in the
Temple.
SEPTUAGESIMA, SPXAGESIMA, QUINQUAGESIMA, and QUADRAGESIMA SUNDAYS, are so
called to signify in even and round numbers, the seventieth, sixtieth, fiftieth, and
fortieth day before Easter.
SHROVE TUESDAY.This day, preceding the first day of Lent, is so called from the
Saxon word Shrive, to confess ; because in antient times, on this day, every person
in England was obliged to confess to his own parish priest in his own parish
church.
Asa WEDNESDAY, THE FIRST DAY or LENT.Originally SO called from the custom
that prevailed of penitents, when admitted to the Church to express humiliation on
accountof their sins, appearind clothed in sackcloth, and having Ashes sprinkled
on their heads.
LENT, signifies spring. The forty days before Easter, therefore, being observed by
Christians as days of humiliation, fasting and prayer, were called the Spring, or
Lenten Fast.
Lally DAY,is celebrated throughout the Christian world under the title of The
Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, or the day on which Almighty God sent the
Angel Gabriel to announce to her the fulfilment in her person of the prophecies
that foretelling the wondrous scheme of salvation, declared a Virgin should conceive
and bear a Sou, &c.(See Gen. iii. 15 : Is. vii. 14 ; ix. 6: Mic. v. 2, &c.)Lady day
is also in civil calculation, the 1st of the four quarter-days, as they are called, of the
year.
Pays SUNGAY.The Sunday before Easter, commemorated throughout the Christian
Church, as the anniversary of our Saviour's last entry into Jerusalem, when the
people took branches of Palm, and went forth to meet him and cried, Hosanna:
blessed is the King of Israel, who cometh in the name of the Lord. This day is
also called Passion Sunday, as the first day of the Passion week.
Goon Vkillaar, called also HOLY FRIDAY; is the day which from the earliest period
in the Christian Church has ever been kept in solemn awful remembrance of the
Crucifixion of our blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
EASTER SUNDAY.The day on which the Lord Christ rose triumphant from the grave ;
and since then ever kept throughout all Christendom as a Great Day, a Feast of
Feasts; and a Sunday of Ay. In secular transactions it is the moat important of all
the moveable feasts, as the day on which it falls regulates all the rest.
ROGATION SUNDAY,the fifth Sunday after Easter, takes its name from the Latin
word rogare, to beseech; the early Christians having appointed extraordinary prayers
and supplications on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday succeeding it.
BOLT TEWRIIDAY OR ASCENSION Dar, is the day on which the Church celebrates the
Ascension of our Lord into heaven.
WHIT SUNDAY, oti Pesrecosr.This day is held by the Christian Church as a
solemn festival, in commemoration of the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the
Apostles on the day of Pentecost. On this day in early times converts to Christianity were most usually admitted to the Church by Baptism ; they were baptised
clothed in white ; hence it became termed White Sunday, from which in later
times was derived the term Whit Sunday.

TRINITY SUNDAY.This is the Sunday following Whit Sunday ; and on this day, the

Christian Church more particularly calls to mind the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.
comnrrencea the season set apart by the Church as preparatory
to the festival of Christmas. On this season we are not only called upon to
contemplate the inestimable blessings conferred on mankind by the coming of our
Lord to "take away the sin of the world," but also to prepare for that second
coming, when He will appear to "judge the world in righteousness."
CHRISTMAS DAY, Or THE FESTIVAL OF THE NATIVITY,commemorates the birth
of our blessed SaviourGoD manifest in the flesh" to whom be glory and majesty

20 Fennywts. = 1 Ounce = 480 12 Ounces 1 Pound 5760 . These are the denominations of Troy weight, when used for weighing gold, silver,
and precious stones {except diamonds.)
For scientific putposes the grain only is used ; and sets of weights are constructed
in decimal progressions from 1O,100 grains downwards to 1-100 of a grain.

By comparing the number of grains in the Avoirdupois and Troy pound and
ounce respectively, it appears that the Troy pound is less than the Avoirdupois
in the proportion of 14 to 17 nearly ; but the Troy ounce is greater than the
!Avoirdupois, in the proportion of 72 to 79 nearly.
The carat used for weighing diamonds, is 3 1-6 grains. The term, however, when
used to express the fineness of gold, has a relative meaning only. Every mass
of alloyed gold is supposed to be divided into 24 equal parts ; thus the standard
or coin is 22 carats fine, that is-, it consists of 22 parts of pure gold, and 2 parts
of alloy. What is called the new standard, used for watch-cases, &c., is 18 carats

VARIATIONS OF TEMPERATURE CORRESPONDING TO


ALTITUDE.
As we ascend, the air becomes thin or rare, and as it becomes rare it also
bws cold. No fact is better established than this, though, the rate of this
ling of the air as we ascend in it does not appear to he uniform, but to vary
:different countries and even in the same country at different seasons. Were
_to go by local data we might calculate it thus. The annual temperature of
Cdombo is probably about 80 5 ; that of Kandy is altit 74 5 ; and that of
; giving a fall of one
nwera Ellia at an elevation of 6,210 ft : is about
tree for every 280 ft: in the former case, and for every 295 ft. in the latter ;
tOults which accord very well with observations made elsewhere, and particularly
ith those which may be deduced from the other sanataria of India,

S. The apportioned rates above-mentioned, giving the maximum allowance for
the last year of each period to which the scales of the Minutes are adapted, are
hoverer only to be granted in cases of decidedly faithful and meritorious service;
bet where the testimony as to fidelity, diligence and merit, is in any respect defective, a deduction will be made horn the apportioned rate, either of one-fifth or
of greater or less amount ; or the grant of allowance will be altogether withheld,
where there has been obvious negligence, irregularity or misconduct.

the shortest terms of service, or to give such extraordinary recompense as they may
deem expedient.
5. The services in respect of which superannuations are granted, ought in all
eases to have been continuous, unless interrupted by reduction of office, or other

Revised Regulations respecting the sale of Salt in
the Northern Province.
THE following revised Rules regarding the issue of Salt for exportation
from the Northern Province are published for general information.

Colonial Secretary's Office,


Colombo, 31st January 1855.

By His Excellency's Command,


W. C. GIBSON,
Actg. Col. Secy.

Tax Salt will be shipped by and at the expense of Government if desired.


The shipment of a cargo however cannot be guaranteed at any time out
of the regular season for shipment as herein strait and in respect to any
such shipment that may be made, the expenses actually incurred in respect
to it must be paid in addition to the stated price of the Salt when shipped
by the purchaser.
If desired, boats can be held in readiness from a fixed day to be named
by the purchaser, at an extra cost of ls. 4id. per boat per day. In the
absence of such arrangement, it will take from 1 to 3 days, according to
the size of the vessel, to collect the full number of boats required, though
shipment can commonly be commenced in all cases with a smaller number
of boats within 36 hours of arrival.
The Salt will be sold both at Jaffna and at Colombo. As regards sales
; at Jaffna, the persons in charge of the Stores at Tondemanar and Jaffna,
are authorised to attend at once to applications, and to make arrangements
for shipment, without the delay of reference to the Government Agent.
The sales at Colombo will be made as hitherto by the Colonial Secretary.
The quantity of Salt available will be published monthly or oftener as
alterations in the quantity available may render necessary.
No Salt can be secured to any party in anticipation of the quantity that
may become available.
Of the quantity that may be stated to be available, 500 Tons (when
there is that quantity) will be reserved at all times to be at the disposal of
the Colonial Secretary at Colombo. With reference therefore to any application that may be made at Jaffna when the stock on hand may not
exceed 500 Tons, it would be necessary to ascertain that it had not been
sold at Colombo, before such application could he complied with; and as
regards the purchase at Colombo of any quantity exceeding 500 Tons,
there would be no guarantee as to the excess above that quantity being
available on the arrival of the vessel.

for the preparation for sale of Crown Land, His Excellency the Governor is pleased
to give notice, with reference to the Minutes of the 22d November 1845 and
16th March 1848, that in future a charge of One Shilling per acre will be made

NOTICE.
HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR having received from His

Grace the SECRETARY OF

following amended Regulations relative to the privileges in the acquisition of


Lands allowed to Military and Naval Officers purposing to settle in certain of the British
Colonies, has directed the same to be put fished for general information.
By His Excellency's Command,
Colonial. Secretary's Office,
C. J. MACCARTHY,
Col. Seel]
Colombo, 25th August, 1853.
Information for the use of Military and Naval Officers proposing to settle in criroin
of the British Colonies.
1. Privileges in the acquisition of Land are at present allowed to Military and Naval
Officers in the Colonies of New South Wales, Victoria, Van Deimen's Land, South Australia, Western Australia, New Zealand, Ceylon, and the Cape of Good Hope. As, hou
ever, the controul of the Waste Lands of the Crown in New Zealand is vested in the
Legislature of that Colony, it must be distinctly understood that Her Majesty's Goy ernwent cannot guarantee the continuance of the following Regulations, but that they will
be liable to be altered or discontinued by the local Legislature ; and the same caution
will be applicable to any other of the Colonies named, in which the same controul may
hereafter be transferred to the local Legislature.
The same privileges are extended to Officers of the East India Company's Service in
Van Deimen's Land.
2. In the abovenamed Colonies, land is disposed of by sale only; but Officea
purchasing land, are allowed a remission of the purchase money, according to be
undermentioned scale.
Field Officers, of 25 years' service and upwards, in the whole 600
500
Field Officers, of 20 years' service and upwards, in the whole
STATE the

56] Rules

for the Sale of Crown Lands.

211

Field Officers, of 15 or less years' service, in the whole 400


Captains, of 20 years' service and upwards, in the whole 400
Captains, of 16 years' service or less, in the whole 300
Subalterns, of 20 years' service and upwardsfin the whole 300
Subalterns, of 7 years' service and upwards, in the whole 200
Subalterns, under 7 years' standing, are not entitled to any remission in the
purchase of Land.
Regimental Staff Officers, and Medical Officers of the !limy and Navy, are
allowed the benefit of this Rule.But Military Chaplains, Commissariat Officers, and
Officers of any of the Civil Departments of the Army; Pursers, Chaplains, Midshipmen,
Warrant Officers of every description, and Officers of any of the Civil Departments
of the Navy, are not allowed any privileges in respect of land. Although members
of these classes may have been admitted formerly, and under different circumstances.
they are now excluded. Mates in the Royal Navy rank with Ensigns in the Army
and Mates of three years' standing, with Lieutenants in the Army, and are entitled
respectively to corresponding privileges in the acquisition of lands.
3. In order to take advantage of this privilege, Officers of the Army and Navy on
full or half pay, should provide themselves with a Certificate from the Office of the
General Commanding-in-Chief, or of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, or of
the Master General of the Ordnance, shewing that their settlement in a British Colony
has been sanctioned, and stating their rank and length of service. No document from
the Office of the Secretary of State is necessary.
4. This Certificate will nut on any account be issued more than once to the same
Officer, or to any Officer on half pay who shall for two years immediately preceding the
date of this Notice have resided in the Colony in which he seeks to make it available.
5. Gentlemen who have ceased to belong to Her Majesty's Service will not be
allowed advantages in the acquisition of Land. This rule, however, is not to affect Officers who, having obtained permission to settle in a British Colony, have quitted the
service fur the purpose of doing so. But, in such cases, it will be necessary that their
"Certificate of service and permission should bear the date of their retirement from the
service, and that, within one year from that date, but not otherwise, it should be presented to the Governor of one of the abovenamed Colonies, which will be sufficient
warrant for allowing the bearer the advantages to which his rank and length of service
may entitle him according to the above scale.
6. The object of the Regulations being to encourage the permanent settlement in
the abovenamed Colonies of Military and Naval Officers, and it being necessary to prevent those who have no intention of settling there from taking advantage of the privilege,
Officers will not, for the space of two years from the making out of their Certificates,
receive a Crown Grant for any Land purchased by such Certificates, but will, in the
mean time, receive a " Location Ticket." At the expiration of two years, the Officer,
on shewing to the satisfaction of the Governor that he is bona file a resident Settler in
the Colony, and has so resided continuously since receiving his " Location Ticket," will
be entitled to a Crown Grant in exchange for it. If, however, application should not be
made for the exchange of the "Location Ticket" within 12 months from the expiration
of the two years for which it is granted, it will be considered to have lapsed, and the
Land will be opened to sale or grant. In case of the Officers dying while holding a
"Location Ticket," the Land to which it refers will be transferred to his legal representative.
In case of such death occurring before the" Location Ticket" is obtained, the Governor
of the Colony is authorized to make the Certificate available in favour of the Child or
other nearest representative of the deceased Officer, as he may find advisable.
7. For the convenience of Officers, the following heads are subjoined of the
Rules for the sale of Land in the Australian Settlements :
M1 Lands are disposed of by sale alone, and must have been once at least exposed
to public auction.
The lowest upset price is not less than LI per acre ; but the Gdvernment has power
to raise the same by Proclamation, though not again to reduce it.
The Lands are distinguished into three different classes ; viz., Town Lots, Suburban
Lots, and Country Lots.
Upon Town and Suburban Lots, as well as upon a proportion not exceeding onetenth of the whole of the Country Lots offered for sale at any auction, the
as. Governor has the power of naming a higher than the general or lowest upset
price : these last to be designated " Special Country Lots."
Town and Suburban Lots are in no case disposed of except by public auction ; but
Country Lots, which have already been put up to public auction, and not sold, may be
disposed of afterwards by private contract at the upset price.

212

Steam Navigation to England, 4c. {PART IV

No Lands are sold by private contract, except for ready money. When sold by public
auction, one-tenth at least of the whole purchase-money niust be put down, and the
remainder within one calendar month, or the deposit is forfeited.
Lands are put up for sale in Lonot exceeding one square mile in extent.
8. In Ceylon, Land is sold by auction at an upset price, which is to be fixed by
the Governor, but which is not to be less than LI per acre. Before the Lands are
exposed for sale, they will be surveyed by the Government, and duly advertised.
9. At the Cape of Good Hope the upset price is 2s. per acre in the old Colony,
and 4s. per acre in the District of Natal.
10. The several prices above-mentioned are of course subject to a revision at any
time by the proper authorities, and the pecuniary amount of the Remission made to
Officers cannot be increased on account of an increased value set upon the Lands.
