ÏÏHje Courier PUBLISHED DAILY. " _ fu TIIUHSDJ.Y, JUXE 23, 1SG1. *' A.x amended Savi.igs Bank Bill, or in other words " ¡i Government Savings^Bauk " Ant of 1864," has passed the Legislative Assembly, and is at present under the con- sideration of the Legislative Council. The main features of the measure can he briefly stated. It promises Government security for money (together with interest on such money) deposited in the hands of any officer duly authorised by the Governor under this Act to receive deposits from persons who wisli to place their small pecuniary savings in n place of safety. The Bill, moreover, enables depositors to draw out their investmentp, on the produc- tion of the requisite documents, in any part of the colony in which these authorised Government officers for the receipt of savings arc located. To illustrate our meaning, we will presume to exist a duly authorised officer for the receipt of these moneys at Toowoomba, and another at lîockliamplon. The man who had...

Long ago we ought to have been in momentry communica- tion with America,-the electric telegraph has &nbsp; made the continents speak together, but thanks to the lingering civil war America and Europe &nbsp; &nbsp; are still as far apart as if Wheatstone's wonder- &nbsp; ful invention were yet to be proclaimed.

SWAGMEN-HOW TO IMPROVE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 June 1864
SWAGMEN - HOW TO IMPROVE THEIR CIRCUMSTANCES. &nbsp; Some time since we directed public attention to the necessity of doing something to abate the Swagman nuisance. We have this week been favored by a communication from a respected correspondent (a settler) on the same subject. he says: "suppose it was advertised that on and after a certain day no travelling swagman would be allowed to eat a meal (i.e., &nbsp; have a feed) without paying one shilling for the same , it would have a most wholesome effect, and tend greatly to benefit this loafing and improvident class of the population. And should the plan be strictly carrried out by every station holder, believe me there would be more satisfaction and contentment among the regularly employed servants on the station. They would see the necessity of attending to their duty, and not every little trifle, as at present, would cause them to leave their situations, and take their swags and go upon the &nbsp; road.
