AN INCIDENT OF AKEIICAN TRAVEL. While pessing tlong a portion of the Ohio and &ssisesipp' Railway, a sceie i~retented itself which I shall not soon. torset. 'On entering the' cat: I obserted,, which is very udusinual in the Northera States, a number of ooloured people sitting iddiscriminately among the whites. This was the more remarkable, eas the latge letters painted outside of some of the care in New York, "Coloured pebple allowed inside this car," were fresh'in my memory. I expressed, therefore, to the'conductor my iorprise (but by no means iny objection) to see the darkies, as they were called, sitting amongst the passengers on the railway towards St. Lounis. "Ohl" said he, , those coloured people are slaves; they most of them come from Virginia, which is a slave Statq, and their masters are taking them through the Stats of Illinois, a fee state, to the slave state of iidsourl.

IMMIGRATION DEPOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 April 1862
fRIOtGRaTION DEPOTS. WE have to congratulate our re?ierE, and the country generally, on the arrival of Ytwo more ;immigrant vessels-the Clifton and the Most moreoncy-adding about 500 additional souls to our population. We trust that these new arrivals will hnd the immigration department better prepared for their reception, than they were on 1he last occasion of the arrival of three vessels within a few days of each other. It seems both eingular and cnfbrtunate that tihe arrival of immigrant vessels should take place in the manner they have -done. In a new and sparsely populated country like this, a ship load of immigrants soon absorb all the accommodation we have at command ; but when otwo or three vessels arrive together, an inconvenience arises which must result in discomfort to many of the new arrivals, and give them an unfavourible impression of the country to which they have come to spend the remainder of their lives. We have fronm time to time urged the necessity of making amp...

Original aorrcspontbnct. To hek Ediltor of the Queeksland Times. BrSn,-Under the very niodest signature of "A Cotiu trymau," some political neophite makes hIis first essay in the columns of your contemporary, of Tuesday last. What countryman he is, may be easily inferred fromnt his inflatedaroganse andassumption ofuniversal eensorship, -but who, I would ask, is this ready-made critic, this mighty "Fadiadeen," who knows aid is conversa't with everything, from the traits and feelings of an Irish in former, or king's evidence to the beoomine essentials of the "dignity and sacred calling" of a ininister? The sources of his inspiration betray him Ijbut'he need not think to sti/le ts with the spirit of the Nation, and claptrap about persecution and seatcarin bigotry. It is an old dodge in Ireland, but it won't do here.:.There are " too many here who know all about the Natson-its flaming bigotry and seditious fulminastions thatuidsrany 0' other Government than that of ]Englandwould haveeon...
