WEEKLY EPITOME. SATURDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 July 1861
WEEKLY EPITOME. SATURDAY EVENING. The report of the native police committee occupied the time of the Assembly on Wed- nesday and Thursday, and after a long dis- cussion was passed without a division, Dr. Challinor being the only dissentient. The questions inquired into were—the present position and organisation of the force ; the charges made against the officers when deal- ing with the natives; and the prospect of civilising the aborigines, The conclusions arrived at were, that any change in the orga- nisation of the force would destroy its effici- ency; that since the reconstruction of the force under Mr. Morrisett, the destruction of property and loss of life had considerably diminished; that the sudden disbandment of the force would lead to disastrous results ; that the efficiency of the force depended mainly on the character of the officers ; that officers should serve a probationary period as cadets before receiving their commissions; that the native police stations should be ...
IPSWICH. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MONDAY (YESTERDAY). [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 July 1861
IPSWICH. [PROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] MONDAY (YESTERDAY). THE three or four black troopers from whom I expected such great things, went out of town on Saturday rigged " up to the nines." Poor fellows ; I dare say, if the truth were known, their handsome toggery was obtained by the exertions of those "un-English and cowardly " pseudo-philanthropists who have been abusing them, and want to turn them out of their honest livelihood. Also, this suggests something I wanted to say about " cannibalism." Tho eating human flesh, even in such cases as where prisoners have eaten thoir own flesh from starvation, is an act utterly abhorrent to the feelings of the superior races. But canni- balism caine to be classed with crimes, through the circumstance of those tribes who have been grossly addicted to it, com- mitting murders for the sake of the victim's flesh ; and certainly where it prevails there is strong reason to anticipate that men will kill each other, for the sake of each other's (lesb...

NEWS AND NOTES. CLXV. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 July 1861
&nbsp; &nbsp; BY A SYDNEY MAN. CLXV. [A portion of our Correspondent's communication appeared in yesterday's paper.] THE Burke exploring parties are all now nearly under way. The little Hotham, a steamer of ten tons only, arrived here a few days since, after a stormy passage, from Melbourne. She is bound for the Albert River, and expects to reach that place before the Victoria. Coals are being sent on for the latter vessel to the Gulf, from Newcastle; and it is likely that you will have the Victoria in Moreton Bay in a few days. But, alas and alack a-day! They &nbsp; say that all this northern zeal is composed of but two ingredients—a desire to open up Queensland on one hand, and the craving for squatting runs on the other. From &nbsp; various sources (says the Melbourne Age), an impression has arisen in the public mind, and one which we fear is but too well founded, to the effect that Mr. Walker's proposed expedition was originally intended as a priv...
