There is another vote of nine to which much objection
has been taken, namely— my opposition to a tax
upon Chinaman—this considered to be an anti-
British attempt at legislation. and I voted against it.
What injury has been inflated upon this colony by the
introduction of Chinamen? They spend their money
in the colony : have largely developed the resources ,
of our gold-fields, even after they have been deserted
by Europeans; and I cannot forget that at the commencement
of the gold discovery they faithfully tended
our Darling Downs flocks, at a time when other labour
was unobtainable.
I shall not trouble you with any remarks upon the
votes recorded by me upon other important questions
nor shall I allude to my labour in committee. when on
three occasions I have acted as chairman, and brought
up three reports, two of which were adopted by the
House.
With respect to local matters, I have done my best to
serve you ; no petition, no letter, from the most humble
of my constituents have been, at any time, left un-
answered, and I trust there are still some remaining
amongst you who will give me credit for the conscientious
performance of a duty involving so much
responsibility.
I hope that you will not permit my mantle to fall
upon the shoulders of WILLIAM HANDCOCK, who although
a useful man in Drayton, would very much resemble a
"Bull" in a china shop, should he find his way into
the Assembly.
Gentlemen—In taking leave politically of you under
the circumstanced which I have endeavoured to explain.
I am anxious to convey to you my grateful sense of the
high honor which was conferred upon me on January
29th, 1858, when you unanimously elected me as your
representative. I have still a large stake in, and a
strong feeling of attachment for, your noble district, and
should I be elected to represent any constituency in the
future Parliament— which is a very doubtful matter—
you may rest assured that so long as Darling Downs is
an integral portion of New South Wales, I shall consider
it a duty. as well as a pleasure, to watch over your
interests equally as if you had done me the honor of
returning me your representative.
I am, Gentlemen,
Your faithful servant,
