The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 186[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 June 1864
8#e Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. El Til I/IIS DAT, JUXE Ki, 1801. ü&lt; Hostility/ to crime is one of the cha- racteristics of the Knglish people. By them tis ¡i nation the laws are invested with a sanctity, whiclt renders the smallest breach ol' thom a crime, and hence it is seldom Unit the publie interfere on the part of a convicted criminal for the pur- pose of obtaining n commutation of the sentence passed upon him. It is true that rases arise where often sen leuce lias been passed upon a prisoner, a fact has been made known which is justly urged as an argument in favor of an extenuation of the sentence, and if proved, the result is as a rule favor- able to the prisoner. Generally, however, especially in petty cases, the liât of the Judge or the Magistrate is not criticised.

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 June 1864
3E3re Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 18G4. Our English readers will readily under- I stand that the return of Mr. Jordan, our indefatigable Emigration Commissioner, by the-last mail steamer, was not a pleasant surprise for the colony. Even those pos- sessing a tolerably accurate knowledge of our official policy, were greatly unprepared for the prompt action which Mr. Jordan has taken. AVe had all, of course, ob- served a marked diminution recently in the stream of emigration hitherwards ; and in commercial circles more especially^ this circumstance was being regarded with a strong feeling of anxious dissatisfaction ; for no evidence lud been forthcoming to show that Queensland had lost any of its popularity in the United Kingdom, while it was indisputable that our previous immi- gration, so far as it had gone, had only more keenly stimulated the demand for labor-how then account for the failure in supply ? It was, when viewed in every way, extremtly inoppor- tune and ine...
