Letters to the Editor. THE PROSECUTION OF THE "COURIER." Sirs,-As it is evident that you are "in for it," I beg, as an old resident, to hand you the sum of £10 towards the expenses of the de-   fence in the prosecution likely to ensue, and shall suggest to all I know that they contri- bute their mite, in order that the incapables of the Upper House may know that they can- not with impunity attack that portion of the Press which his always protested against political tyranny and incompetency. What I hope to see is, that the whole of the public of Queensland will come forward and give something, however small. All that I   have spoken to believe that a meeting should be at once called, to organise a public sub- scription. If it should really come to a prosecution and the result be a fine, I shall give £20 more towards defraying it. PATRICK MAYNE. August 2nd, 1861.

(FUOM AKOTOHU cor.nEsroNDP.ST.] ROCKHAMPTON, July 27. I have little to qpmmunicato except that we bave many npw arrivals, and plenty of stock passing to tho northward, which keeps us in a continual scene of bustle. The Emily Hort arrived here last week with some 140 odd rams, from Melbourne, under the charge of Mr. Stanley. Unfortunately, the vessel grounded coming up the river at low tide. She keeled partially over, through which some eight or ten of these valuable rams were smothered. Every exertion was used, by Captain Castle, but the . cook having stolen his boat, rendered it difficult to land them, until they obtained assistance from the pilot, some being landed on one side of the river and some on the other. Those on this side not being much improved by the hand- ling, &c, were driven out to LagoohFartn, the homestead of the inspector, Mr. Young, who immediately afforded them every ac- commodation in his power, allowing them the use of his enclosed paddocks and covered...

Several rules were made, and all members ave anxious to cul- tivate that noble game. The two Chinamen, Ung and Yoe, taken up for being accessory after the fact in the murder of Johnny (Chinaman) were com- mitted for trial by our police magistrate. Our folks are seriously discussing the feasibility of incorporntinc our town. No doubt such a step would and will tend to the advancement of any place, but before it is taken by the inhabitants, they ought to consider well whether they aro ripe fur such an honor. The Amended Municipal Act certainly gives far moro advantages to newly-incorporated towns than the old, and the t...

Of course, the uninitiated in Brisbane will think that a great compliment has been paid to Mr. Fitzsimmons. The aforementioned requisition was set a going by one or two individuals belonging to that class who are ever on the watch to make themselves the objects of public attention. The document referred to was drawn up hastily, and indus- triously hawked from door to door till 120 signatures were obtained. Now this looks largo to a stranger; but let nie tell yon a secret. The .people of Rockhampton will sign anything in the petition or requisition line, so long as their pockets are undis- turbed.
