THE CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

)f . . . . -¦ 11 d THE CENSUS. The whole of the returns from the country districts have not yet reached the Registrar General, and it will take some little time to arrange and classify. them after they have all been received, so that no official state- ment can be made for several weeks at least. Anticipatory of the result, however, we are enabled to give the following figures, most of which have already been published at dif- ferent times in our columns. ln their col- lected form, they show the amount of popu- lation in seven of the principal towns.and six of the chief police districts of, the co: lony.         Towns                   Brisbane ..... 6062 Ipswich .......... 3278 Toowoomba ........ 1180 Drayton ........ 322 Warwick ........ 1161 Maryborough.................... 650 Gayndah ......... 409   ...

NATIVE POLICE COMMITTEE. (From the North Australian, May 10.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

NATIVE POLICE COMMITTEE. (From the North Australian, May 10.) It was our intention to have abstained from making any remarks on the committee ap- pointed to investigate the proceedings of the Native Police Force, and the other matters involved in that enquiry, until we had seen the report produced by them, believing that, by their report we should have satisfactory evidence that the arguments used by us at the election for West Moreton would be fully established. And here, lest we should be misunderstood, we will repeat the argument to which we refer, i e. "that it is dangerous to entrust too much power in the hands of any particular class." As, however, some of the members of the Assembly have felt very sensitive about the remarks made on that committee by one of our Brisbane contempo= raries, we feel absolved from our resolution to wait the result, and we will at once state that we look upon the composition of that committee with very great jealousy, and we havo no hesitation in a...

COLONIAL TOPICS. APPOINTMENT OF LIFE NOMINEES TO THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

COLONIAL TOPICS. APPOINTMENT OF LIFE NOMINEES TO THE COUNCIL. The additional appointments to the Legis- lative Council which rumour asserts will shortly be made, should serve to again remind the public and their representatives of the existence of that Chamber, and the very objectionable nature of its constitution. Hitherto our nominee chamber has practi- cally proved a harmless, although somewhat expensive, toy; but it possesses powers which, if exerted, might render it a formida- ble engine for obstructing all popular legis- lation of the people's representatives, and for'facilitating legislation of a contrary ten- dency. Even thc members of the Executive, however strongly they may be imbued with anti-democratic tendencies, must perceive the undesirability of placing in tho hands of a temporary Governor the power of nomi- nating gentlemen of his sole free will to seats for life in a Chamber which can exert an absolute veto over any Jaws to which the representatives of tho people h...

GAYNDAH. ll (FltOUOUttOWNCORBESl'OXDnXT.) " - Allt;i,30, 1SG1. Last'Saturday night our town was'startled by a report that a mau lind been murdered by a town resident named Spearing, On proceeding to the scene I found Mr. McMillan lying on his back tn tho gateway of tho nbovetnentioned individual's house still breathing. He bled profusely, having been hit with a sharp instrument on tho top of thc head, thereby fracturing his skull. Drs. Thomas and Stevenson were soon in attendance, mid con- veyed the unfortunate niau to a place where they could examine the wound. The instrument pene- trated very deeply, but fortunately the Wow proved not to be mortal, and although thc man is suffering very much, great hopes aro'entertained of his recovery. Spearing is in custody. How the affair happened, or what cause Spearing , had for so in- juring McMillan I am unable to say. So ninny (tories aro afloat that I rather refrain from giving any particulars till court day. Ma-. John Auerbach sold last ...

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

IMMIGRATION. We have often alluded, in previous Sum- maries, to the regulations recently promul- gated by the Government of this colony for the encouragement of immigration from Great Britain and Europe, and have further stated that the old plan of assisted immigra- tion ceased with the commencement of the present year. It was thought by many, and we expressed the same opinion in our columns, that the new system should have been set fairly afloat, and have become thoroughly understood by the colonists, be- fore the old was altogether abandoned, and it would seem that the government have at length arrived at the same conclusion. Among the votes for which the loan referred to elsewhere is projected, are the follow- ing:-   For assisted immigration...... 16,000   For female immigration ...... 6000 Total.......... £22,000 To whom the selection of the immigrants   thus to be sent out will be entrusted, we are not yet aware, but we can well believe that every pre...

The Courier. TUESDAY, MAY 14, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

The Courier TUESDAY. MAY 14, 1861. The vice-regal, speech dealt tenderly with the Immigration question. It was recom- mendatory, but cautious. The Assembly, had passed certain resolutions, and was " recommended" to maintain them ; but nothing was said touching the propriety of supplying the defects developed by experi- ence in the system which sprang from the resolutions referred to ; nor was any refer- ence made to the advisability of encouraging settlement by immigrants from other colo- nies. Both these are matters of considerable moment at present ; and might have occupied a paragraph in the speech with more pro- priety than jubilations on pastoral settle- ment ; or on the extent of country ready for occupation, without the labor necessary to render that occupation, permanently profit- able to the colony at large.     Undoubtedly the present system of land orders as an equivalent for passage money is highly satisfactory to the squatting interest, more es...

THE VICE-REGAL SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

THE VICE-REGAL SPEECH. The speech delivered before tho assembled ohambers by Sm George Bowen, on Tuesday last, partook very much of the character of the addresses usually given on such occasions by regal and vice-regal per- sonages. There was much in it that might have been left out; and much left, out that ought not to have been omitted- It is cus- tomary to find fault with such documents. People always seem to expect a great deal from them; are disappointed when their ex- pectations are not realised; and grumble, after all, because they have so little to cavil at. For our own parts, we did not expect anything out of the ordinary course, and we were not therefore in any way disappointed. When we say that the speech had very little ia it, we mean that there was very little that everybody did not know before- hand. "We are told, amongst other things, that pastoral occupation is proceeding rapidly; that tho agricultural reserves are being surveyed ; that a settlement has been formed a...

The influx of parties on the look out for country is quite enlivening, and trade is brisk under the in- fluence of the hard dollars circulated by these people. Several mobs of cattle and sheep are camped between Presto and Yaamba, as the Fitzroy is up. A temporary bridge is about to be erected at the latter place, in order to cross the sheep. Messrs. Caldwell, Kerr and Clark, Peterson and Hiltling, Rule and Lacey, and Wills, are all in this neighbourhood.   Several stations are about to be formed on the Nagoa, and Upper Isaac, Messrs. McDonald, Orr, and Hood and Manning, are now leading up from Yaamba for their new runs in those rivers. The Nagoa country is spoken of as superb, and Mr. Wills' station one of the best in Queensland. Shepherds and bushmen are much required for these stations, and a ...
