Commercial Intelligence. FRIDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 July 1861

Commercial Tniel ^etsce. FlUUA.1 EVENING. DuaiNö the first two days of the week the despatch of orders for the north, and produce to Sydney, caused some briskness in the market. Since then, however, business has been dull ; most of the consumers in the interior have already laid in their stocks, and the near approach of tho shearing season is drawing off surplus la1 or from the towns and limiting the demands for retail. Almost every article of general consumption is fully supplied, and thero is little prospect of quit- ting large parcels, or inducing speculation before the latter end of September. With such business prospects, any alterations ia prices aro likely to bo in favor of the buyers, except where rates are contingent on the chance of a better market olsowhero. The alterations of the past woek have been few and unimportant. Flour is easier, and pur- chases have bcuu made at our minimum quotation. The arrivals during the week have buen GOS bags. Tobacco has again advanced, be...

The question is no doubt one of very great i infortunée.

Just let your readers take the trouble to calculate what must be the Annual loss to our growers and exporters of our staple produce-Wool ; and the loss on importing the breadstuff wo require, which, with good roads, we'could grow ourselves.

NATIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 July 1861

NATIONAL EDUCATION. DiíAit Sin,-If I conkl understand the drift of the Bishop ol' tho Anglican Church in Queensland relativo to national educathn, I need not trouble you on the above subject; but as 1, in common with many others, either cannot understand his wishes or aims, or am guilty of misunderstanding them, ¡iv expressed by his letters in the Courier, 1 must cr.tve to be excused if I leave my more legitimate omploymotit in order to be enlightened on the subject. What does the worthy prelate desire ? Is it the education properly so called, of the masses ; that is, national education ? or is it to have the opportunity of proselytising to his particular, and cortainly not very extended, views of-the " whole duty of man ?" If he desire the former, there is no plan known to nie so effective for tho purpose as the nationnl system of education ; if he desire the latter, ho has yet to leam the disposition of the people of Queensland, who will never submit to havo their general property...

GAYNDAH. (FltOM OCIt OWN COltltESrOXDEXT.) GAYNDAH, JULY 20, 1S01. LAST Monday a general mooting of membera of the Debating Society and the public, took place at the society's rooms, for the purpo.se of changing its nntnc to that of the " School of Arts." The President (Dr. Stevenson) occupied the chair. In explaining the ob- ject of the meeting, he commented on the gratifying fact of being called upon to pre- side on sucli an occasion ; considering that the society commenced operations with such a few members, and under so many ob- stacles, and now, after the lapse of about 24 months, being in a position to place the in- stitution on a firmer footing, and enlarging its usefulness, speaks for itself. After it livety discussion, in which Messrs. F. G. Connolly, F. Beames, A. Walker, John Auerbach, and Thomas White joiued, the following resolutions were passed unani- mously:-"That from the 1st August the society shall assume the name ' Tho Gayn- dah School of Arts,' and that a meeting...

fijcííer Ao tíie EiQElitn-. THE GRAMMAR SCHOOL QUESTION. Sut,-I laid the charge of inconsistency and bigotry at the door of your local con- temporary in your issue of last Tuesday, in reference to the momentous Grammar School Question, and the Guardian of Wednesday treated mc with a whole leading article in leply, denying my charges, and challenging mo to the proof. In coming to the proof now I believo I am promoting the causo of Grammar School education, and attracting public attention to one of the most vital questions that could engage the Queensland commuuity at tho present moment-a questiou so much talked of, so little studied ; a question often used as a political watch- word-seldom considered in its social, moral, and national interests. For such grave considerations I enter the lists willi your contemporary, und not for the high ambition of bearing away the palm of logic from that most consecutive journal. And yet, Sir, it is necessary to take logic for our starting point af...

The Courier. MONDAY, JULY 29, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 July 1861

MONDAY, JULI'20, 1881. SINCE our last remarks on the Burran- gong riot, the face of affairs at Lambing Flat seems to have undergone a very considerable chango. Instead of being strongly tinged with the terrible, the whole affair now boars an impress of the ridiculous, and if it were not for the fact that one man-only one-has been killed, the reader of the various reports might be disposed to laugh outright. There can bo no doubt whatever of tho fact that a large number of diggers inarched to the police camp on the thir- tieth of June last, and demanded the release of the three prisoners captured. The police leave it to be inferred that this demand was unconditional-the diggers seeing that it was accompanied by the offer of bail. In either case, the demand, backed as it undoubtedly was by some attempts at intimidation, was illegal, and the police were quite justi- fied in resisting auy attempt to enforce it. But here arises the first question. While the police declare that the rioter...

There were 152 appeals altogether, of which 79 wore cither withdrawn or fell lo the ground, in consequence of the appellant not appearing, or were confirmed by the bench. On Tuesday, , Mr. Cockburn sold tho Tartha Station, with 5000 sheep and the improvements, to Mr. John Pettigrew, at 15s. per head. The little Shetlanders of Mr. Gunn, now at Mr. Cluno's, have attracted a great deal of attentiou. If tho weather permit, I be- lieve they will take their leave for the sta- tion to-day. On Tuesday evening last the Rev. Mr. Drane delivered an interesting lecture upon " The Genuine Epistles of Ignatius" (com- monly known as Saint Ignatius). Ho sketched the life of Ignatius, and described his martyrdom, when sent by Trojan to feed the lions in the Roman amphitheatre. He then referred to the earthquakes at Antioch, ...
