NOTES AND ITEWS. The South Australian maij steamer arrived at Adelaide ou Wednesday last. The statement was the latest announcement made bv the New South Wales telegraphic wire. Wbetlier the importance of the news was too much for the wire, or whether the wire has. a true New Sooth Wales apprecia ation of Queensland, and will not believe that depriving it of anything is a matter of -consequence, certain it is that wheaerer it has intelligence of importance to send Northwards, it is immediately amongst the list of incapables. Thinking of the pranks it has played us, and how often we have wished it any where besides where it was. We have often asked ourselves where it was manufactured, and who sold it to the Government?

CITY WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864
CITY WATER SUPPLY. The ceremony which afforded such unusual excitement to the people of Brisbane on Thursday, was remarkable enough in the circumstances connected with it, to justify our dwelling at some length upon them. They are, at least, suggestive to our fellow-citizens of what kind of measures should be taken with reference to the provision of other necessaries for the accommodation and happiness of the people of Brisbane. The address of the. Corporation to his Excellency, dwelt very properly on .the self-supporting character of the in tended structure. It was this peculi arity which rendered the obtaining of the necessary capital so comparatively easy. Similar precautions in other matters now before, the people may legitimately enough be expected to produce similar results. And we shall be glad to find the Bridge and the Water Supply dealt with, as far as pos sible, in a like spirit. Undoubtedly the last mentioned question is one of paramount import ance to our rapidly growin...

THE RAILWAY CONTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864
THE RAILWAY CONTRACTS. plaint is frivolous, is assuredly the easiest, if not the most effective, manner of defending official patrons. The trick is very old, very dangerous, and very hurtful to those whom it is intended to serve. Omit from a charge its worst features, treat it lightly, ridicule the complainants throw .in a few humour ous allusions to passing events, and wind np either with virtuous indigna tion or the assertion that the com plainants are actuated by party mo tives, as the oase«nay require. Such is the usual style of defence pursued by a gemi-ofiicial organ. The charge against the Government in the matter of the tenders for the Railway, was not that they refused any or all the tenders sent in, or because they answered briefly and did not con dole with the disappointed contractors ; no such absurdities were expected from them. But what was' 'expected from them, . and - the substance of ? the , complaint against- . 'them, was, that, while professing to ect impartially ...

THE DOUBLE CAPACITY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864
THE DOUBLE CAPACITY. The difference of opinion between die Governor and his advisers and die people of Brisbane, on a question of (V-nstitutional right, is one of more importance than may at first meet die view ; it assumes diat in all matters of Government die voice of the people can only be heard through a majority of tiieir representatives in Parliament, and diat unless they can command that majority, they can only sue in humble language for the alteration of any act of the Executive. This ruling implies, first, that the people are folly aud fairly represented ; second, diat the Adminis tration can do nothing daring the Par liamentary recess diat will be displeas ing to the majority, or that cannot await its verdict; and, third, that there exists in the representative of Majesty no separate Executive exist ence, but only the power to carry oat the will of his responsable advisers. In die reply of his Excellency to the resolutions of the last public meet ing, he states that, 'the ...
