THE GOVERNOR AND GOVERNMENT OF QUEENSLAND. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 8 August 1861
THE GOVERNOR AND GOVERNMENT OF QUEENSLAND. [CONTKIBUTED.] The proceedings of tho present session of I parliament have developed in their full enor- [ mi'ty somo of the results of the illegal and unconstitutional procedure of Sir G. F. Bowen in interpreting and carrying out the Ordors iu Council by which Queensland was | erected into a colony ; and it needs but tho opportunity to establish beyond tho possi- bility of a doubt, that, by his illegal action and unconstitutional behaviour, tho people's political rights have been sacrificed for five years to an unscrupulous and dominant class ?a class so well kuowu for selfishness and illiberality over the face of Australia, that , in every other portion of it save Queensland, their very name stinks in political nostrils. No amount of special pleading or attempts ! to implicate Mr. Justice Lutwyche in the conspiracy to deprive the inhabitants of this colony of their political rights, can exculpive Sir G. Bowou from tho charge of having acc...

Wfyz fotttfer* Fill DAY, AUGUST D, 1801. Queensland is most unfortunately circum- stanced with regard to her communication with the mother country. We believe that, in every other colony of the Australian group, the inhabitants aro enabled to look forward with conCdenro to a specific date for the closing of the English mail, and we cannot see why there should be any insu- perable bar to tho enjoyment of a like con- venience by the inhabitants of this colony. Wc can scarcely blame the Postmnstcr Genoral for what has taken place hitherto, since we believe that be has acted for the best, in his own estimation, mid that be would be only too ready to moko arrange- ments for the accommodation of the public, if he were satisfied as to' the modus operandi. It is net, therefore, so much with the intention of finding fault that we write those lines.

The reception given to the ministerial candidates yesterday has caused a stir in the opposition camps. Fourteen constituencies out of twenty supported the ministerialists by show of hands. Protection in the programme of the ministers has dwindled down to a gradual revision of the tariff, as,revenue is required to meet public debt. The timber ex Quickstep sold on the wharf at full rates. The reduction of wages on the railway lines has led to a riot at Woodend. A body of police force has been sent down by train. Wednesday Evening. The riot last night threatened serious con- sequences. About 500 workmen took pos- session of the line and destroyed some property. One sub-contractor, Mr. Lavender, magis- trate of Kyneton, proceeded-to the spot and quieted the mob by assurances that their grievances would be considered...
