WEEKLY EPITOME. FRIDAY EVENING [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 18 May 1861

WEEKLY EPITOME. FRIDAY EVENING. The publication of this journal on Tuesday last as the first daily paper in Queensland is a fact which tells its own tale as to the progress being made by the colony; and may therefore be recorded as the chief event of the week. At first sight this circumstance may seem one of minor importance, but in reality it is not so, inasmuch as the   existence of a journal which daily spares no pains to tell how the world goes; which is over open for the full ventilation of all ques- tions of public interest; which is ever gather- ing in stores of information, and spreading them abroad; which is ever the advocate of measures tending, to the advancement of the colony; and ever the jealous guardian of the rights and liberties of the people, must exer- cise an important influence in the advance- ment of a new country. Land was sold at Gayndah during last week at the rate of £140 per acre. A recent issue of the Bathurst Free Press contains an advertise...
