APPENDIX NO. 6.

DESPATCH FROM EARL GREY TO LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR SIR DONALD CAMPBELL, BART., DATED DOWNING STREET, 27 DECEMBER, 1849. ORIGINAL MS G. 284. (CANADIAN ARCHIVES), pp. 281 et seq.

Sir:

Her Majesty's Government have now had for some months under their serious consideration the subjects of your recent despatches No. 21 of 4th of May last, enclosing a bill to provide for the payment of the Civil establishment of the current year, and an address from the House of Assembly to the Queen, proposing certain conditions on which that body expresses its willingness to make permanent provisions for the same object--No. 23 of 18th of May and No. 50 of 18th of September enclosing memorials from several gentlemen whose official salaries are affected by the Bill.

Pending the further discussion of the great question involved in that address I have advised her Majesty to confirm this act, and an order in council for that purpose will accordingly be transmitted to you on the first opportunity.

With respect to the Crown Revenues, Her Majesty's Government is prepared to surrender the revenues derived from the Spirit Duties and sale of Crown Lands, and the quit rents when they revert to the Crown, to the control of the Legislature on the reservations, by permanent laws, of a civil list to ensure the due performance of certain public services.

As the salary of the Lieutenant-Governor is at present discharged out of the Parliamentary vote, and I have no reason to suppose that Parliament is likely to withdraw that Provision, Her Majesty's Government do not consider it necessary to place it as a part of the permanent charges to be borne upon the Civil List, if the Legislature is willing in other respects to provide adequately for the necessary services, and to preserve the interests
