BY A.SYDNEYMAN. ' -I u,e Thk wisdom anti moderation ot tue igneous- t. land Parliament to which his Excellency Sir news 'George Bowen has attributed much of thc but general attention now drawn to that colony, ?will sustain very considerable damage if many such motions as that of Slr. Watts, in re tho Press, aro again allowed to occupy an hour or two of time. The privileges of thc Queensland Parliament must ho of a very -delicate and sensitive kind, if they cannot .hear without wincing such exceedingly mild treatment as was administered in thc article complained of. Your future career will have to he very different from that of other Austra- lians .if lyon don't have to put up with much worse than that.

IPSWICH. ' To (l'ROM OUR. OWN COUllUSl'ONMKNT.) D Saturday, May 18th. CJ So thc returning officer for West Moroton luis received instructions to postpone thc nomina- tion until tho 3lst instant. That will givo thu government an opportunity, of which I hope they will avail themselves, of picking np a guod opposition candidate. Thoro will surely bo'plenty of chaps about at tho race time that would cut a far better figure in an election than the late rejected of West Moro- ton, and who would and could have no gentle- manly or prudential scruples in opposing Clmliinor.

RAISING THE WIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 May 1861
RAISING THE WIND. Our ancient friend the Treasurer, the other day, was overhauling the Treasury with a rueful countenance. All he could find was one of TAYLOR'S calabashes for a pound, a rupee, a doubtful shilling, a threepenny bit, and three of Brookes' pennies. He had just made up his mind to go off to Pickering, to consult with him about the state of the colo- nial finances, when WATTS, with an air of most provoking assurance, entered, and plant- ing his back against the door, announced that he required a few cool hundreds, and that the word was "stump-up." The ruler aimed at his head, just missed him, but unfortunately coming into contact with the Colonial Secre- tary's hat, which, together with its owner, &nbsp; had just appeared at the door, it considerably damaged that article of attire. " My. dear fellah, you know we must have some money so do just fork but at once without any bothah.'' MACKENZIE put on an air of resignation, and pointed to the contents of the Treasu...

.Local Intelligence. Housebreaking.? On Saturday night, about half-past 7 o'clock, Mr. Scaulan's bed- room, in the Queensland Hotel, was entered by thc window, and a cash-box abstracted. 'Mrs. Scanlan, hearing a noise in the- bed- room, gave the, alarm, and her husband sighted and gave chase to tho thief along Margaret-street, in which he wns joined by Messrs. J. McGurk and Hargraves. The former of these: pressed so olosd on the rascal as to forceShim to take Mr. Forrest's fence, over which he was followed, and cap- tured with much difficulty. Mr. Hargraves got a slash across the back of his hand from somo sharp instrument, supposed to be a knife, which he cast away in the scuffle. Near the spot where he was captured thc cash box was found, and held fast in his hand were two £1 notes. Ho was taken back to the, hotel, and given in charge to Sergeant Apjohn, who, on searching him, found several picklocks in his pocket. Much praise is due to the persons who made the capture, and wc hop...

WATER POLICE COUR. &nbsp; &nbsp; BEFORE Mr. Thornton, W.P.M. John Rogers, able seaman on board the Samson steamer, was convicted of insubordi- nation, on the evidence of Captain Paddle and the chief officer. It seems that, during the voyage from Sydney to Brisbanc, the prisoner on one night was remarkably remiss in steering thc vessel, and, after having been re- peatedly cautioned by Captain Paddle, he at last said, " Come and steer the b— vessel yourself ;" whereupon the captain ordered him to be "knocked off" duty. Sentenced to be imprisoned for three weeks with hard labour, and then to be returned to tbe A.S.N. Co.'s service, to complete his three months' engagement.
