DEATH OF THE VERY REVEREND DEAN GRANT, D.D. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

DEATH OF THE YEKY BEVEBEND DEAN GRANT, D.D. (Abridged from the Bathunt Touts, Feb. 27.) It is our melancholy duty to chronicle the death of this respected diguitary of tbe Roman Catholic Church. Early on Tuureday morn ing the town was startled by the announce ment of bis sudden demise, and consterna tion was depicted on every countenance, for it was not generally known that he was ill, and such as did know fancied that the crisis had been passed and that so apprehensions need be entertained. The disease he died of was diptheria. On last Saturday night he was is tbe Confessional up to a late hour, and caught a cold by sitting in the draught. He had been ont the previous week attending sta tions, and arranging for the erection of a church at Boekley, and of a school at the Lagoon. On Sunday he said mass, and preached a most remarkable sermon on the 'Transfiguration' of our Lord. It was his last, and it was by far the most eloquent he was ever known to preach. Lassitude and general rel...

CORRESPONDENCE JUSTICE IN THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

COBBESFONBEtTCE. JUSTICE IN THE BUSH. Mb. Editob, — Will you be good enough to give publicity to tlie few following lines relative to the shameful treatment, and the glaring injustice shown lately to a shep herd, who, as yet, has not the most distant or possible means of seeing himself justified, by so doing you will do him a great service, and render an infinite good to some of the itinerant dupes, who may wander to the bash with an elated heart and s light foot, thia\ing they are going to make a fortune throueb the sweat of their brow combined with their industry sad care. Now, to make the story as short and as impartial as it can be.it will suffice to state that the shepherd had been employed by a squatting firm, on the Upper Dawsou, at the rate of twenty-five shillings per week, and continued in the said employ while it suited the purpose of his employers. His master haviug called him to adjust his affairs, and instead of eiving him credit with the sum of £12 3s1. his honest ear...

PARSIMONY AT THE BAR [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

' BJftSIMONY AT THE BAB. Men who have once been short of a shil ling have a marvellous liking for dis pising those in a like predicament of a sixpence. Bnt our Government stretched their grasping economy to three or even four sixpences. The men who labor at the Dredge have hitherto had eight shillings per day — the com mon wages of a day labourer in Bris bane mar be cited at six uhlllingBper, diemr If we consider fee different cir cumstances under ?which, the two are situated, we shall at once come to the conclusion that a man working in mud and slush, away from the comfort of home, and comparatively isolated from companionship, is deserving' of more pay than bis fellow, who, when he leaves off) baa at his immediate com mand all the enjoyments of which his station and mwnig admit. But the Government seem with characteristic perversity to think otherwise. They will give no more than tie six shillings, and the men will take no less than the wages to which they are accustomed, and not ...

REGISTRATION MANOEUVRES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

REGISTRATION MANOEUVRES. TBreRE is an amount of suspicious ac tivity, both here and elsewhere, at pre sent displayed in objecting to the re tention on the Electoral Boll of the names of claimants for the elective franchise. Now this is not reprehen sible generally speaking. Every elec tor has a right to see that the purity of the Electoral Boll is maintained in violate ; nay more, we say it is the duty of an elector to object to persons whom be knows to be unqualified, being re gistered as voters. But, like all things, this civic right may be abused. Per sons may be found, who, for die sake of motives not at all creditable to them selves, will object vexatiously againstin dividuals, withregard to whose qualifica tion they have as much knowledge as the Gorilla of Central Africa. Tea, and what would accrue to few men as a possible contingency in a peaceful com munity, there may be found despioa bles who will object «n masse against those thyyugoomcei^^^poUtto^ when a great number are ...

ABUSE OF THE PUBLIC ESTATE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

ABUSE OF THE PUBLIC ESTATE. The extraordinary advances made in Australian exploration during the past three years, must give a fresh impulse to colonization in these parts. It is, indeed, wonderful to contemplate ' the great and heroic efforts that have been made to discover the Central and Northern portions of this continent. The ever memorable expedition of Burke will mark an era in Australian history. The enterprising genius of the man— his great success — the lamentable results of his perilous journey to him self, will perpetuate the name of Burke, and render the 'Bdrke Expedition' a 'household word' in Australia for ages upon ages to come. It was his lot to achieve a great enterprise, — to be fore most in a band of Explorers such as few countries can boast of, and whose labours have had such a happy effect on the progress of Australian settlement. No part of the terra AustraUs is now incognita ; the centre of this continent is no longer a mystery and the puzzle of geographers. ...

REPRESENTATIVE REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

REPRESENTATIVE REFORM. There is only one important measure which the people desire that Parliament should devote its attention to during I the approaching session. That measure is a redistribution of the representation and such alterations as to the number of members and the character of the suffrage, as the circumstances of the community may make expedient. The want of better representation for the several districts is widely admitted, as well as that, the time has arrived when the evil should be removed. Any attempt to put off this measure, or .to procrastinate the time of its coming into operation, will be generally repu diated. It is well known that the present Assembly does not represent the opinions of the. colonists, that for some time it has been tolerated only in the belief, that as soon as the necessary preliminary information was obtained, tbe grievance would be effectually cured. Heretofore the people have neither' agitated nor gone farther than to ex press their knowled...

MELANCHOLY DEATH BY DROWNING [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

arELANCHOMT DEATH BY DROWNING. We regret to have to chronicle tills morn ing the death by drowning of Captain Wit ham, of the ketch Perseverance, lying at Harris' wharf, which melancholy event oc curred on Friday niurning, between two and three o'clock. From information, which we obtained from authentic source, it appears that tbe deceased captain was standing on the wharf, which was covered with a foot of water, and in -mnrer ration with Captain Har wood of the Wild Wavo. Captain Harwnod was sitting with his feet outside the bul warks of his vessel, and the unfortunate de ceased cautioned him to take care, imme diately afterwards he was observed in the act of getting on board the AVild Wave, to effect, which he placed his foot on tiie gunwale plate ; and, it is supposed, from tAio vessel having received a fresh cnat of paint, his foot easily slipped off, and he fell down be tween die vessel and tbe wliarf.

SEAL REPRESENTATION WANTED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

REAL REPRESENTATION WANTED. A pabtt without a policy is a rope of sand. With an unscrupulous Ministry at its head, it has the glutinous con nection which attaches all corruptible matter. In an Opposition there is no bond, unless there is a concord of opinion, not only upon what is to do, but also upon how it is to be done. In such a case much depends upon the sub ject and more upon the manner in which it is treated. Now, what is the policy of the Opposition at the present juncture t In past Sessions it has been the tactic of the Government to taunt the mem bers on the opposite side that their policy was merely, jnegative ; and we we really triable to do 'other than ad mit that there was a gceat deal .of justice in the accusation. In giving' cause to such an insult — and in tacitly submitting to its justice — the members who sit on die left of the Speaker were not true to the historical traditions of party, in the patriotic sense of the term, or to. the con stitutional spirit of parl...

OUR PRODUCTIVE RESOURCES IMPEDED. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

OUR PRODUCTIVE RESOURCES IMPEDED. We have in this colony an advantage which we possess in common with our neighbours, an unlimited supply of land — unlimited for all practical pur poses. Indeed, we differ from the other colonies only in this, that we have it in greater quantity and of better quality. In the table-land of the Downs there are very few plants of European growth that do not come to perfection. At all events, wheat has been as successfully, grown there as anywhere eke in the world. The vine has prospered wher ever its cultivation has been as yet attempted in the colony. Then, again, there is no production requiring the, rays of a tropical sun to warm it into maturity that cannot be easily procured from the soil of Queensland. In this we have the advantage over the sister colonies to the 'south. Here the ba nana, the pine, coffee, tea, and the sugarcane are ripened with easy cul ture ; and cotton and arrowroot are as natural to the soil of Queensland as -potatoes and oats...

MINISTERIAL LOVE OF TRUTH [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 March 1864

MINISTESIAL LOVE OF TRUTH. The petition to the Doke of Newcastle seems to have been exceedingly sugges tive. Not content with the leading articles in various journals, Mr. Her bert must indite a critique of his own composition upon its contents, and six days after his JSzeeUeocy bad received the objectionable document, takes upon himself most irregularly to acknowledge its transmission to the Governor. He ? really had nothing to' do with the matter. The petition was forwarded in dne coarse to the Governor, to transmit to the Secretary of State, and any no tice of its receipt should -officially and properly — as well as calmly and 'inflex- ibly^ — have come from the Private Se cretary. Why will Mr. Herbert insist on poking his not very dead fingers Into other psopU'i pin I But he complains oF ' numerous mis representations' which be proposes to correct. There are two ways of dealing with accusations of this kind— one by meeting the alleged untruths, the other by showing' the untrnthf...
