MISCELLANEOUS. EXTRAORDINARY NARRATIVE. (From the Calcutta Englishman.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 July 1861

MISCELLANEOUS. EXTRAORDINARY NARRATIVE. ,, , (From the Calcutta Englishman.) THE following is tho most miraculous escape" from dreadful death wo ever beard of. The most thrilling incident in the most startling romance can scarcely equal it, and yet it is true, perfectly true, and the hero is alive and doing well. OB Thursday, 14th March, the two Bons of Colonel Thomas, Godfrey and Frede- rick, loft Mnssoorio to ride to Jcripani. It ?»vas dark when they started. The elder, Godfrey, a young man of about eighteen, insisted on taking the lower road, known as Mackinnon's, and his brother, rather than allow him to ride by himself on a dark night, agreed to come with him. Tho road is both difficult and dangerous, and Frederick Thomas's horse fell twice with him. God- frey, a most dashing rider, then changed horses with bim, and on they went again, Godfrey leading at a headlong gallop. The second fall had rather stunned Frederick, and he soon lost sight of his brother. Think- ing, however, ...

DISSOLUTION OF THE VICTORIAN PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 July 1861

DISSOLUTION OF THE VICTORIAN PARLIAMENT. THE majority in the AJictorian House of Assombly, uko the members of our late Legislative Council, attempted to signalise their last moments by an act of power and dignity, and stoppod at onco from the sublime to tho ridiculous. If a goose tried to soar with the eagle, tho sight could scarcely be moro absurd, or the effort more pitiful, than such miserable exhibitions ns these. Tho spectacle of Mr. Pyke tearing aud trampling upon the Governor's speooh was a suitable finale to the whole farce, and completely turned the tables upon the actors. 'We should bo the last to condemn the full oseroise of all the rights and privi logos of an electivo Assembly, seeing that upon their careful preservation our liberties in this colony may havo to depend ; but the conduct of the hoterogenous Cabal that has been formed for tho overthrow of tho I leales administration goes far beyond any such legitimate actiuu. Tho most obtuse observer could scarcely fail to...

"ALL THE TALENTS," [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 July 1861

ALL THE TALENTS," SIR,-Some persons, ironically or otherwise, have applied the epithet " talented" to your correspondent up here, I don't know that it was intended ironically ; but if it wero, it has had the effect that might bo expected, for the object of it has evidently lacked the talent to seo the irony, and it has puffodhim up to that dogroo that'ho verily believes that no other talented pooplo arc to bo found in Ipswich. T took the liberty of pointing out h,la sugges- tion about going to Brisbane for assistance to get up an entertainment for the opening of tho Ipswich Mechanics' School of Arts, to some of the really gifted mombors of our community, and I assure you it was not long beforo they had thoir " dander riz."

Jioettü InaícB!iur«nic«. QUARTER'S ÎÎEVENUE.-Since the publica- tion of our article on the last quarter's re- venue, wo have been informed that the sup- posed discrepancies wo noticed did not really exist, as tho statement only dealt with moneys paid into the Treasury on or before the 30th of June. This explanation-makes the statement clear ; and in so far as it ap plies to the Customs' reveuue from the out ports for the last month of tho quarter is a valid reason ; but in a department, tho whole business of which is conducted in Brisbane and Ipswich, the matter is different, and wo can see no cause why the receipts of the de- partment should not be handed over to the Treasurer up to the end of each month, on Ît3 last day. An impression was also on our mind at the time wo wrote, that an instruc- tion to that effect from the Treasurer was in existence, and required to be strictly ob-, served by the several heads of departments. If such an instruction has not been issued, the Treasure...

DR. LANG'S IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 July 1861

DR. LANG'S IMMIGRANTS. IT will be in the knowledge of many of our home readers that, in the year 1849, three shiploads of immigrants arrived in this colony under the auspices of the Rev. Dr. Lang, by the vessels Fortitude, Chaseley. and Lima. Many of these people were, induced by the Doctor to leave England on the representation that, for every £20 expended in passage money, they would receive I6 acres of land on reaching this country, he having made an arrangement with the government of New South Wales to that effect. Upon this under- standing a large number of the immigrants who paid for their passages-many of them did not, but came out at the Doctor's expense -received land orders, most of thom for 80 acres, and expected, on arrival, to be placed in possession of the quantity of ground indi- cated. Although a few who came out by the Lima succeeded in inducing the government to honor their orders, those who arrived by the two other vessels never obtained a rood, and those who have...
