Letters to the Editor. THE MOGGILL AND SANDGATE ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861

GiWíúea-s to ilsc EMïtor. -»- ] THE MOGGILL AND SANDGATE i KO ADS.' t SIR,-During the last session of Parliament a vote of £1000 was obtained by our thou member, Mr. Buckley, for the above named loads. I beg, therefore, to bo allowed , through the medium of your journal, to call ! atteution to tho manner in whioh that moiety j of it belonging to tho Moggill road has boou spent, T ' 'I ho country poi tion of this road is about 12 miles in length, and the locality has been, settled about 12 years, during which time I believe not a farthing has been spent on it except £15 for a bridge about 10 years ago. But about threo years ago, our then member for the County of Stanley succeeded in obtaining a grant of £500 from the Sydney government, for the western suburban road, which was duly spent, and which made that portion a very passable nnd good road, and after other little repairs since done, it was ' considered by the Mogul people that it would not be necessary to spend another farthing ...

INTERNAL COMMUNICATION. [CONTRIBUTED BY "W."] (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861

INTERNAL COMMUNICATION. [CoNTiiinuïED ny " W."] ( Concluded.) THE cheapest railways that have been made aro those of America. They have nearly all been the result of private enterprise, assisted hy grants of land from the States. The first constructed was by the State of South Caro- lina, between Charleston and Augusta, a distance of 133 miles.

Parliamentary Paper. CORRESPONDENCE IN REFERENCE TO Mit. F. WALKER'S COMPLAINT OF AGGRESSION BY THE NATIVE POLICE ON PLANET CREEK. Nulallbin Post-office Rockhampton, 3rd April, 1861.   Sir,- I do myself the honor to state, that on the 26th January, 1860, I arrived on the spot on the Planet Creek, which I had fixed on as one of the stations of Mr. Cameron: I was   there met by eighty adult aborigines, with their gins and children, and subsequently seventy more arrived. From that time to   this these aborigines have carried on with me and the other employees of Mr. Cameron, a most friendly intercourse-several of them having, at diffent times, assisted in shep- herding, driving my horse-team, cutting bark, washing the sheep, and otherwise making themselves as useful as possible, whilst the remainder have, as usual, carried on their limiting operations, without in any way interfering with, or injuring the property on the station. In June, the stock...

SMALL DEBTS' COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 August 1861

SMALL DEBTS' COURT.   Before the same Magistrates. LAVER v. BURFORD.—This was an action     for slander, the damages being laid at at £10.   Mr. Brown appeared for the defendant. From   the evidence of plaintiff and his wife it appeared that their little boy had found a sheep which had strayed from the flock, and returned it to the owner. Shortly after, de-     fendant made use of words in allusion to this     transsction, accusing plaintiff of sheep steal-           ing. The words complained of were made use of to plaintiff's wife in a public house,     where the two parties met, and a dispute   arose between them. Defendant asked the       woman "how she liked stolen mutton," and then said that the sheep above referred to had...

HOW THE MONEY VOTED FOR ROADS IS SPENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

HOW THE MONEY VOTED FOR ROADS IS SPENT. Sin,?Noticing a letter by "A Traveller," complaining, and very justly too, of tho man- ner in which tito £500 voted for the Moggill road was laid ont, I beg to inform our Mog- gill friend and the public generally, that he may travol another road and find thc same, as thero are a few more besides those ho lias mentioned, who have had their finger in the £500 pie. Perhaps our Moggill friend does not know that throe or four of the govornment officials have bought land and built houses nt tho Red Jacket swamp, and of course these " bloated aristocrats" must have a road to their houses, and so they have. Wo did not hoar of any money having been voted for thu Red Jacket swamp road, although thero must have been £200. laid out on the culverts and road in that direction, and I suppose, out of the Moggill grant. Now if this is not favor- itism, I don't know what is ; and this is another proof that tho proposed Minister of Lands and Works should, be res...

CLARENCE AND RICHMOND. (From the Grafton Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

CLARENCE AND RICHMOND. (Prom tho Grafton Examiner.) CoiiotfiAii Mekiisiiaum.?Those who feel | an interest in this colonial production, pro- cured from Richmond River, can see a specimen of it at tho shop of Mr. Dixson, tobacconist, Gcorge-strcot, who having pro- cured a small slab of it, has had it smoothed and polished in a way similar to that in which the pipes aro polished, leaving the rest of tho surface iu tho rough- ns dug from the earth. Dr. Dixson was of opinion that it was not tho gonuino meorshaum, notwith- standing its similarity in appearance and its floating in water, but it has boen since inspected by Mr. Keene, geological surveyor, who pronounces it to be the genuine mecr flbaum. It is believed that this valuable mineral actually does form an item in the undeveloped treasures of this colony, and that it is not confiucd meroly to'ono locality. Mr. Dixson has likowise a superior specimen of clay, suitable for tho manufacture of first class china, which is said to exist ...

COMPARATIVE MERITS OF THE CAPE AND AUSTRALIAN HORSES FOR MILITARY PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

COMPARATIVE MERITS OP TUE CAPE AND AUSTRALIAN HORSES FOR MILITARY PURPOSES.

The Courier. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

®fie"."'Cimr&fc WEDXESnAr, AUGUST 7, 1801. In a colony like Queensland; with1 an almost incomprehensible extent of terri- tory, the principles which oiightto guido the government in tho formation of now settlements, should unquestionably be! us liberal ns possible. Every encourage^ mont should be given, at all compatible! with existing laws and regulations, to that spirit of adventure and enterprise which will tend, more than anything else, to spread population over this colony. Australian experience shows that it ia one thing for a surveyor to map out a township, and quite another and a different thing to induce people to go nnd livo there; nnd an inspection of tho pions in thc Survey-office would fully prove that the main idea which our government have in the laying out pf townships does not seem to comprehend tho welfaro of thc futuro inhabitants of auoh townships; but simply the selling of so much land at thc highest prioo' obtainable?no matter how severe may be the pres...
