Correspondence. IPSWICH CRITICISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

Correspondence. IPSWICH CRITICISM. Yours truly, AN ATHENIAN. SIR: I am proud to belong to a town which is called the Athens of the colony, and has a Grammar School and a grammatical editor. But sometimes I don't quite understand all he means. For instance, not long since the Queens- land Times blamed the Government Gazette for saying "to celebrate marriage;" I hare erer since been puzzled to find out it is Can you tell me ?— [We cannot see why the newspaper you refer to, ventured to criticise the expression " to celebrate marriage." Of course the editor might be more familiar with the expression "to solemnise marriage " because it is used in the English church service. But this does not make the phrase employed in the Government Gazette, wrong. The Latin word celebrart from which "celebrate," is derived, does itself mean "to solemnise." Celebrant in French, is used by Roman Catholics to denote "the officiating priest at mass." It is an unfortunate thing that those who are most dispo...

SENSATIONS OF DEATH BY VIOLENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

SENSATIONS OF DEATH BY VIOLENCE. WHEN Dr. Livingston was sleeping out one night in the course of his explorations a lion seized and shook him, with a view to further proceedings. It is not many men who can say with Miss Pecksniff that they " hare lived to be shook " in such a style a* this. The Doctor records it as his experience that the result of this shaking was to superinduce a sort of coma tose state, a feeling half of numbness, half con tented repose, in which he disregarded pain, and had no considerable dread of the tearing of flesh and limbs which was to precede death. Thereupon he suggests the idea that perhaps the practice of shaking their prey which is ob served in all feline animals, as well as in dogs and in some of the more violent fishes, is a pro vident*! arrangement to spare the necessary victim pain. If we look into tales of death by violence, we shall see in very many cases tome such pre paration for a comparatively easy death ; easy, that is to say, as compared w...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1866. MR. ATTORNEY-GENERAL LILLEY will deserve the thanks of the country if he succeed in carrying out his proposition "to "revise and consolidate the Statute Law "of Queensland." The difficulty of un derstanding what really is the law on any given subject is so generally felt, that there are few who will question the statement that the method of legislation in practice is " very trying to the student of law." What then must it be to those who have to pay for, and to abide by, the decisions given under laws which are so difficult of comprehension. As an illustration of the manner in which this difficulty arises, it was stated by the Attorney-General that the Statutes affecting the Supreme Court itself were no less than thirty in number, and that in these Acts such a variety of subjects were jumbled up together as would necessarily comfuse any one. In Victoria these Statutes were consolidated some time since, to the manifold advantage of both lawyer...

NOTES FROM TALGAI DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

NOTES FROM TALGAI DIGGINGS. THE report of the Gold Commissioner, pub-<*> lished since I sent you my last notes, is a very fair and impartial account of the state of affairs here, and in all material points corroborates my own impressions. The Commissioner very properly reports upon things as they are, not as they might be, or ought to be; and such reports, plainly and truthfully made, invariably do more real good than the inflated and exaggerated accounts in* dulged in by some of our pseudo friends. The remarks anent the " Victoria " Crashing Machine are severe, and deservedly so; public opinion here points the same way. The shep herding system is also touched upon, and the injury done thereby to the gold-fields is by no means overrated. Speaking of the present con dition of the reefs, the report goes on to say, " That they are, however, rich and extensive, and would yield large returns if properly worked, noonewho hasseenthemcanforamomentdoubt." And again, a little fu...
