THE UPPER 'OUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 August 1861

THE UPPER 'OUSE. WHEN on dooty up at Ipswich, to'ards tho middle of last week I received a Telly-gram, which tims to me did speak : " Hurry back with speedy 'äste, which I'm sorry for to hurry yer, But there's like to be a crisis 'twixt the Upper 'Ouse and ' Currior.' " " I 'ope you enj'yed yer visit, tho* brief lias been yer stay, And that they've done the thing genteely, have Quin and Kernel Gray ; Meet nie promptly in the Lobby, when you returns to town, And believe me yers sincerely, William Ant'ny Brown." > Prompt I packed up my portmanty, and tuck it to the boat, Which the steamer was the " Ipswich," the ugliest boat afloat, But the Capt'n he's a very brick, and that they all disklver. Willoh travels up or down with him, upon the Bremer Kiver. Away she quickly darted-soon disappears the town, And our noses soon do indikato, we're near the " Biling Bown," Whero the Ipswich Oav'lry Captin, which his name is Smith I think, Stood stirring of his tallow pots, and making of a sti...

TO THE PEOPLE OF QUEENSLAND. No. I [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 August 1861

TO THE PEOPLE OF QUEENSLAND. No. I. FELLOW COLONISTS,-You are aware that the Legislative Council last week aimed a blow at the liberty of the Press. It was de- cided by a majority of that venerable house that the Attorney-General should be in- structed to prosecute the publisher and printer of the journal in which this letter appears, on account of a loading article in its issue of the 30th July. That article con- tained some severe strictures on the proceed- ings of the Upper House, and it has worked itself up into a terrible passion, and is hit- ting out right and left. Had the editor of this journal fed it copiously with lolly-pops, the public peace and safety would not have boen disturbed, the appetite for sweetmeats being insatiable ; but the administration of a dose of rhubarb and magnesia, although ab- solutely necessary to health, has led the patient not only to push the cup violently away, but to perpetrate a gross insult upon tho doctor. It is high time for you to take int...

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 August 1861

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [cONTniBUTKn.] WE see some indicatious in the public Press of a feeling that this matter of the native police is all settled. This is a mistake. Those who tried to wade through the speeches of our senators on the subject, may well be a little weary of tbb topic ; and there is no doubt that the ministry and their squatting majority have calculated on tiring out the public attention ; but they are out in their calculations. To the ministry, of course, the crisis is passed, and that is all they caro about. Not so with the public. Now is the time for the Press to speak out. Before, nothing but the apparent deterniina" tion of the government to deal with the matter in their own improper way could warrant the Press in alludng to the matter as it has been alluded to. Even the little show of aversion which the Press made was fiercely resented by Mr. Watts in the Assembly. Well, the government and the Parliament have done all they mean to do, and now it is the duty of t...

ROCIIAJUTON.-Bird and Wormald report business has been exceedingly quiet this week, which may be accounted for by the ab- sence of the steamers, as woll as very few people having visited the town from the inte- rior. In the horse market we have no trans- actions worthy of note, beyond a few privato sales. Draught horses have been much in- quired for during the week, and would sell readily at good prices ; and there is a fair in- quiry for useful roadsters ; but purchasers do dot feel inclined to buy at present rates, and holders look for last week's quotations.

IPSWICH. [PltOJt Oütt OWJf COURESrOSDEKT.] SATURDAY, AUGUST IN (he Jpsivich Ihruld yesterday there was a piece of "original poetry," upon whose merits, "as a literary composition," I should say something, if I were not afiaid of being suspected of plagiarising a brilliant thought from Mr. M'Alister (vide tho opening of his speech in the native pol ice debate). It is called the "Doctor's Tournament," and the object and animus of the production may ho seen at a glance The writer does not appear to bo very well up in Ipswich politics, as ho repiesonts Dr. Challinor as having been chosen by the electors of Ipswich in piefereneo to Bell (!) My in- ference as to the animus of the piece is founded on a few phrases which are rather more plain spoken than the rest ; as " modern critics consider the doctor an ass ' (There are not half-a-dozen men in Ipswich who would havo penned that lino under the idea that it was funny). Also, "ho failed to prove his ease, and excited some derision ;" and t...

The Courier. MONDAY, AUGUST 5, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 August 1861

MONDAY, AUGUST 5, 1861. ! IF the appearance made by Queensland at the Great Exhibition of 1862 be otherwise than creditable, the fault will not rest with our local commissioners, supposing that their energy knows no abatement until their work be done. From all we can learn, the Commis- sioners would be very much more san- guine of success if there were, on the part of the public generally, a greater show of interest evinced, and a more palpable desire to co-operate with those to whom the task of providing for the representation of the colony at this great "world's fair" has been entrusted. The importance of the occasion, and the necessity of showing ourselves equal to it, cannot by any possibility be over- stated. It is. the first opportunity which has offered itself for the young colony of, Queensland to put forward her claims to a name and a place among   the peoples of the earth, and if the opportunity be not awailed of to the fullest extent, we shall have lost a cha...

MURDER OF A MISSIONARY AND HIS WIFE AT ERROMANGA.   (To the Editor of the Herald.)   SIR, -Would you kindly permit me, through your columns, to communicate the very dis- tressing intelligence received by me to-day, of the barbarous double murder, by the natives of Erromanga, of the Rev.

PLOTS AND CONSPIRACIES! [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 August 1861

PLOTS AND CONSPIRACIES ! To say that we knew all about it long before it happened would be merely a repetition of a worn-out platitude. Our leaders-so that arbiter elegantium, the Right Honorable Nor western Woods informs us-besides thrilling the civilised world generally, daily produce extraordinary sensations in the purliens of the Club and Government House. The silent member for the Leichhardt, who, like Hercules, is great at the Club, if at nothing else, has been appointed to read aloud one of those instructive productions every day be- fore dinner by way of grace, in order to whet the appetites of the assembled guests. 'A select committee "of the members of the in- stitution, O'Connell being chairman, have decided that one master-mind is incapable of producing all of them, and it has been some time since resolved that a watch should be set upon our establishment, and the mysteries connected with our private and domestic arrangements laid bare. There is a good deal of literary j...
