IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MONDAY, AUGUST 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Monday, August 5. As I have accused the Attorney-General of unconsciously casting a slur on my veracity, I feel bound to explain the circumstances, which I shall do with as much brevity as possible, but also so distinctly that he may see that if his engagements permitted him always to read my letters with care, and if he never questioned my veracity, he would occasionally find himself in a safer and more respectable position. In my letter to the Courier (January 31st) I mentioned that the Fassifern inquiry had been brought to a close ; but that " the particulars are not to be made public, because the parties impli- cated in the affair not having been present at the inquiry, committal would be impos- sible, until the case had been tried in a court of law, when the same evidence might have to be produced." A fortnight afterwards I understood from Dr. Challinor that he intended to publish the evidence. To enlighten me as to his reason for the chan...

Local Intelligence. BRISBANE AMATEUR DRAMATIC SOCIETY.- [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 7 August 1861

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Brisbane Amateur Dramatic Society.- On Monday evening last, the society of amateurs gave an entertainment at the School of Arts. The elements were, as on a previous occasion, unpropitious, and the at- tendance was, in consequence, not so large as the efforts of the performers deserved; or, as under more favourable circumstances it doubtless would have been. The first piece of the evening was Albert Smith's burlesque of "Guy Fawkes," of which the three prin- cipal characters, viz., Guy Fawkes, Gatesby, and Monteagle, were played by Messrs. Glassock, Hoghton, and S. Peterson, re- spectively, the feminine characters being sustained by Miss Brown, and Miss Jones, (so set forth in the play-bill,) two young   damsels of very Amazonian appearance. Messrs. Glassock and Honiton displayed considerable comic power in their delinea- tion of the characters of Guy Fawkes and Catesby, as drawn, not by Hume, but by Albert Smith. Mr. Peterson, as Monteagle; was effec...

Dr. HOBBS moved that this bill be road a second time, and in doing so explained tbnt tho absence of a bridge connecting North ami South Brisbane (which formed in!.reality, sections of thc same township) wns not only a groat obstruction to trade as connected with tho interior, but also tho cause of isolation which amounted practically to tho belief that tho two localities were separate townships; mid, as a matter of course, had separate and distinct interests. Undor these circumstances, the corporation rightly thought that tho time had arrived when tho two localities ought to be connected hy a bridge, which would not only tend to tho consolidation of metropolitan interests, but also lead to tho facilitation of traffic by one of tho loading thoroughfares into the interior.

And if public running is to bo taken as any criterion of a horse's quality, none havo done more than Mr. Carden Collins's Huntsman, who will, T think be found to head the list of winners as oftcu ns any of the other horses that may be considered as exclusively belonging to this colony.
