COUNT-OUTS. (From the Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861
lüld - pon COUNT-OUTS. (From the Saturday Review.) THE tactics which the insincerity of poli- ticians drove the House of Commons to employ last year in expressing its aversion to Reform have terribly demoralised it. The multiplication of count-outs during the pre- sent session shows to what an extent it has lost the courage to look an awkward ques- tion in the face. The ordinary notion of a count-out is a process for the painless ex- tinction of bores; and it seems at first sight no great hardship that a man who cannot command the interest of one-sixteenth part of the Ilouse of Commons should bs pre- cluded from keeping the officials out of their beds and swelling the nation's gas bill. This may perhaps be fair enough so long as it is the spontaneous result of genuine apathy! In fact, it is the only protection which the House of Commons has against being made the laughing-stock of the world by the vagaries of its less intelligent mem- bers. If this salutary check were removed, the n...

THE AMERICAN STRUGGLE. (From the Saturday Review) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861
THE AMERICAN STRUGGLE. (From the Saturday Review ) AMERICAN proclamations and despatches, like all other State-papers, express rather the judgment which it is desired that others should form than the opinions of their authors. In some cases, the statements and arguments which they contain are purely and almost ostensibly conventional. Neither governments nor insurgents wish to avow their own initiative when they havo thought it for their interest to commence a war. Even Napoleon was in the habit of throwing the responsibility of a rupture on Austria or on Prussia, as soon as he had massed his troops and accumulated his stores at fhe points most convenient for invasion. Mr. Jefferson Davis, when he affects to complain of the hosti'e policy of the government at Washington, canjscarcely wish^to bo liteially understood either by friends or enemies. It is sufficient for his purpose to sketch a form of apology for Southern aggression which partisans may adopt and fill up if the quarrel sh...
The Courier. TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861
ïïjffe ê0ttrfer; TUESDAY, AUGUST G, 1801. IF some niombois of tho Legislative Assembly exhibited, in a glaiing and offensive manner, tho weakness of their understandings by their long and point- less speeches upon the question of the native police, we certainly are not to blaine for it. Wo carefully avoided irritating the temper of the Assembly by manifesting any distrust of their ability or willingness to deal justly and wisely with the report. Wo reminded them of the magnitude and importance of the task before thom. We cautioned them, if they should lind the time too short to master the vast body of evidence plnced in their hands, to prefer inconvenient delay to* fatal piecipitation. And if honoiable members wero couvincod, by a slight perusal oí tho evidence, that it was utterly beyond their grasp of com- prehension, why they could, at the very worst, have lemained silent. That, by speaking at random upon a subject of such grave importance they have provoked something more formid...

DR. HOBBS AND THE GERMAN UNIVERSITIES. " P.irfnrínnt montes, nnscotur ridiculus mus." Sia,-Newspaper correspondents at a dis- tance from the locale of the capital labor under a great disadvantage (more especially in a colony where the postal arrangements aro none of the most regular) in comparison with correspondents resident in town, as far aa regards replying to statements, &c, &c. Dr. Hobbs' reply to my article with the above heading in your paper of July 2nd ' proves tho above assertion satisfactorily, as it appears in next day's issuo of the Guardian, while this will hardly reach you before four or five weeks have passed over, during which a great part of the readers of Mr. Hobbs' reply will have hud plenty of time of taking all his dicta as gospel. I should have thought that Dr. Hobbs, in common courtesy, ought to have inserted his reply in the same paper that ray attack appeared ; however, the last paragraph of his reply proves pretty clearly that ho is totall...

THE PORT CURTIS MINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861
THE PORT CURTIS MINES. SIR, -As I perceive one or two inaccura- cies in the letter of your Gladstone corres- pondent, published in your journal of to- day, I will ask you to be good enough to allow me space to correct them,'as they might mislead persons seeking information in reference to the mines in the neighbor- hood of Port Curtis. The mine to which your correspondent alludes as " Manton's," is not the one known hy that name as belqnging to Mr. Manton, sen., but my Iveragh mino, of which Mr. J. A. Manton is manager. Your correspondent is also wrong in as- serting the ore now sent down to be the first forwarded for shipment, some eight or nine tons from the same mino being already, I trust, in England. - I am, Sir, . Your obedient servant, ' M: C. O'CONNELL. Rosemount, August 5th, 1861.
SALARIES OF GOVERNMENT CLERKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861
SALARIES OF GOVERNMENT CLERKS. SIR,-I wroto you some time ago, whilst tho Civil Service Bill was before the Assem- bly, upon the injnstico which would be inflicted hy tho hill upon certain of the most competent of the officers in tho service, whose ambition was unlikely to be satisfied by thd increase of salary therein offered. That moasure has since been rejected, and wore it not for certain votes lately passed for additions to salaries in 1861 and 1862, I should not again address you. As, however, these increases bear out strongly the truth of what I pieviously asserted, as to the influence of favoritism with the Executive, it is worth while to call attention to the subject. In justice to the " indiscriminate econo- mist" of Western Downs, and other mem beis of the house, I must allow that almost all these additional votes have met with strong opposition-conduct which has cer- tainly an appearance of fairness about it which I should be ready to appreciate, had it not been tarnishe...
