"THE FIRST ASSEMBLY IN THE WOULD." [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 29 September 1863
'THE FIBST ASSEMBLY IN THE WOULD.' Theke are many scandals which it may b mure prudent and discreet to screen from the public eye and public animadversion than to expose. But ttiis delicate screening of such matters may be carried too far, and encourage the repetition of them to the detriment and disadvantage of the community at large. One or two cases in point have occurred recently in tWwfiprasrio em' manner in which certain 'scenes, mat occuneo in die House of Commons -were reported in the columns'of that capacious public instructor, die Times. The following is a sample of the edifying interchange of civilities, for the re production of which die columns of tk r Thunderer, tiiongh so enormously huge could yet, as it wonld s'eem, not find suffi cient space. - The snbject under discussion was die Mhow Court Martials and the con duct of Colonel Crawley.

IMPORTANT EXPLORATION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 29 September 1863
IMPOBTANT EXPLOBATION. From Western Australian papers received by the Bangatira we learn that a party of explorers from the settled districts have made a journey inland towards the boundary of this colony, and have fonnd good conntry as far as they reached, which was a point abont 250 miles due north of Thistle Cove. Thus* one-half of tbe large tract of country which lies inland between Sonth Australia and die western coast has now been ex plored. We give a few particulars of this important exploration from the Perth Ttioinrer ;^~ 'The moBt gratifying portion of the in telligence is that which t*fers to the abund ance of good arable and pastoral land, which Mr. Lefroy estimated at 65 per cent, of die country travelled over, or 37 per cent, of agricultural land, and 28 per cent, of country fitted for pasture. The preponderance of good land over bad increased as the party proceeded in an easterly direction, and per haps the country was of a promising description at the furthest point;...
MARANOA. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 29 September 1863
MABANOA. We compile die subjoined particulars from a correspondence to the Tooaoomha Chronicle of yesterday : Tbe country in all directions is looking remarkably well. Tbe spring is well ad vanced and feed abundant. The lambing is everything that die squatter can desire ; but unfortunately, the supplies are very short, roads bad, and consequently the drays unable to travel. Some of the stations are ont of flour, outers out of sugar, tea, or something or otiier. Tee Chief Constable of the Condamine in company with another member of die force have returned from their search for the prisoner wbo escaped from the lock-up. They appear to have prosecuted the search with diligence, the man being evidentiy-an adept to all species of doges to baffle his pursuers. They succeeded in coming up with him at a place called Boga Hut, on .Captain M'Carthy's station, early in die day. He appeared to be preparing for breakfast beside a deep creek. When called npon to surrender he refused and plunged i...
GAYNDAH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 29 September 1863
GAYNDAH. The Burnett Argut of die Slst instant writes : The School of Arts in our town is in a posi tion far from flourishing; it is, in fact, languishing and fast approaching a decline. A reviral is sadly needed, and those on lose shoulders has been imposed die care of its management should at once bestir themselves. If some vigorous measures are not forthwith adopted, the institntion will and must necessarily fail in achieving the ends for which it was intended. Its sphere of usefulness is even now so contracted as to be productive of very little benefit to tbe town generally, and unless, as we have said before, some energy, is withoutfurther delay displayed on the part of die committee, it will f-ii s— a*»jw«»^l,w .m^ its xtl&oe shall know it no more. The subjoined item* are extracted from the rams jonrnal : — The lambing on most of the stations in this district averages this season 98; — in some few instances it has leen lOi and 106 per cent.

WARWICK. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 29 September 1863
? « ? WABWICK. Wsrraro of the Talgai Quartz Beef, tbe Warwick Mail states :— In consequence of die arrival in town on Thursday last of a prospecting party with twelve ounces of ;old, said to have been obtained from a new lead of gold on Talgai, we determined to nay die locality a visit, and accordingly on Thursday last we set out on our pilgrimage at which place, after a few mishaps, we arrived safely, &nd iadeiae from the speci mens that have been shown to us (some of which are lying at our office for inspection) little donbt can be entertained that an ex tensive and payable reef will shortly be opened in that locality. The twelve ounces above alluded to were the proceeds of some four buckets of quartz, and crushed in the most primitive style. Tbe wash dirt alone, as far as we can judge, will run something like half a pennyweight to the bucket, should this lead continue. Talgai Beef viii prove one of the richest yet discovered in either Melbonrne or New South Wales. In die ...

lTSWiCH. Cfkom oob. own ookbespondknt.) Mdhdav. 28th Sentember. Turn is great stir in Ipswich Just now relative to the best situation for the Bail way Terminus. The advocates for having it on the Ninth aide appear to have very little reason in support of their argument, unless it be, what our friends on the 8outh side say, the enhancing the value of certain property situated in the vicinity of tbe Eup nnuul sitn- It is a nitv anv selfish motives should influence people in a matter of such vital importance to Ipswich. There are very few, unlms such as are actuated by pecuniary motives, who ?wonld hold, 'even though it cost less money.' that the North side is the position best adopted, both inside and in relation to the interest of Ipswich. On Friday evening the members of the Volunteer Corps met in the store of Mr. Gastartfa, for the purpose of complimenting Mr Hall, on the occasion ol bis retirement from their body.
