NEWS AND NOTES. CLXVII. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 August 1861

NEWS AND NOTES.   BY A SYDNEY MAN. CLXVII. I am most happy to inform all who feel interested in the matter, that gloomy winter is about to leave us, the last few days having been very clearly harbingers of spring. It is rather "raw" and damp to-     day, but the back of the winter is broken, and a good job too, for rather too many people have been lately taking journeys feet foremost in the direction of Camper- down to make the contemplation of continued Winter agreeable to those who are not over anxious for such lonely quarters just yet.   The state of the "Burrangong rebellion"     may be briefly told. The following tele- gram furnishes a picture of the state of affairs up to Friday last:— Nearly the whole of the military and police left the camp this morning, at half-past 9 o'clock, and, making a detour, crossed Bur- rangong Creek below the town; then, wheel-   ing to the left, they suddenl...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THURSDAY (Yesterday). [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 9 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Thursday (Yesterday). The usual meeting of the Municipal Council was held yesterday afternoon ; present, the Mayor, and Aldermen Watkins, Stanley Clunes, Bethune, Gorry, and Johnston. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed; the overseer's, report was read, aud the report of the finance com- mittee adopted. Alderman Johnston asked if anything had been heard respecting the bye-laws. The Mayor was glad the question had been put. There was reason to believe that some persons were in private communi- cation, with the government, and in the meanwhile the corporation remained in un- certainty. The Mayor then moved, and Alderman Watkins seconded, -That the auditors receive £10 for their services. Alderman Clune opposed the motion. He thought if the auditors were paid agents, tenders should be called for their work. Alderman Johnston also thought the ap- pointment should be strictly honorary. Alderman Bethune thought that any &a...
