MANIPULATION OF TENDERS [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

MANIPULATION OF TENDERS. The history of the railway contracts will be .a curious one when its present mysteries are unravelled. Of a piece with the emigration regulations — curi- ously consistent in its parts jmd perfect as a whole — it will exhibit to the world to what climax a Oneonsliuiii »;«;-,-..., having the confidence of the representa tives of the people .may arrive. In order that-onr .readers may thoroughly appreciate its value, we shall recapitu late a little, and perhaps astonish a great deal. We premise, however, that the origi nal scheme was a fit preparation for the results we have experienced. To Mr. Fuzgibbon waB committed the charge of the railway as Engineer-in-Chief, and also as a. contractor for the survey and superintendence of the line at a rate ? considering all the circumstances ? un- precedented in the history of railway undertakings.

*HE TOWN HALL. CEB.EM0NT OF LATING THE FODKDATIOH BTOKE. Bbisbikb mayjustly feel proud of the pro ceedings on Thursday evening last. The ceremony was effective, the interest general, and nothing which forethought could pro vide to ensure order and success was defi cient. We do not remember to have wit nessed a similar display where all went so smoothly, and the satisfaction expressed in every countenance proved how well the convenience of all had been consulted. Be tween four and five thonaajiri mmm m»n- congregated in the neighbourhood of the site ; and beyond the usual banter and sal liesof.wit in the crowd, there was no manifes tation of discomfort, or any accident to mar tbe pleasure of the occasion.

MINISTERIAL CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

MTNISTEEIAL CRITICISM. Ws really are delighted with the apeech of the Honorable the Minister for Lands and Works. Wo at first were inclined to be-a little augry at the vituperation which he poured out upon the members of the Brisbane Press ; but, upon re flection we found ourselves in decent company; once upon a time the highest dignitaries of the colony, Governor, Colonial Secretary, and AttorneyGene ral bad worse accusations levelled at them than those now lannched at the members of the Press who came from Victoria. And even if this were not so, the comments of our contem porary the Guardian are so deliciously suggestive that we could readily listen, could human nature hear more, to a dozen speeches from BIacausteb for another article like that which appeared on the first of this present month for his special edification. We have in oar time been charged with being « coarse.' Well, it may bo so, but did we' ever charge the honor able Minister with 'the arrogance of ignorant vulgar...

puoprriAToay jhongs. Toe stream of deputations flows and the official frigidity, wbich one time congealed the warmest waters, now, with friendly thaw, relents, and blandly swims with the tide. Mr. Macalistee pens a little document duly considered, and bearing consi derable indications of tbat readiness to take suggestions which once won him good graces in high quarters. He is great on constitutional representa tions. He will do anything to meet the city of Brisbane. When he is menaced with a storm, which, even his courage is not proof against, he will give way.

A POLITICAL BAG MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 February 1864

A POLITICAL BAG MAN. It is told of the celebrated Colonel Cbockett, that when ]je wanted a con stituency be shouldered his rifle, and filled his knapsack wtth grog and to bacco, and set forth on his canvass. The great utility of personal intercourse and observation is perceptible as much in the existence of the commercial tra veller as in the necessity for a ministe rial progress. Face to face, a great deal cau be said that even the most prosy or reckless wonld sot put on paper. There are the accessories of voice, man aer, and sight which have great force in bringing about the object they desire. To take, as example, a Ministerial pro gress, and trace the consequences which may arise, the power of individual presence, and the fitness of the func tionary for his position, will be readily perceived. The Minister for Lands and Works appears to have greater faith in a pro gress than any of h»B colleagues, tbat is if his ^movements are to be -taken as an index'lto bis- beliet It does not...
