NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 August 1861

NATIVE POLIO lil REPORT. [CONTJBUTKD.] The committee, whose incapacity wc arc bound to prove, will so often bo referred to hereafter, that it seems desirable to find a short name for it, by which il may be known iii the time to come. In Eng- lish elections the committees arc named after the colour which they favour and support, as the "buff committee," tho "blue committee," &o. On this prin- ciple^ which is tho one usual ly followed when it is wanted to find a name truly descriptive, short," but distinct from a mero nickname, wc believe,posterity will always speak of the N.

AM I NOT A BEAST AND A BROTHER? [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 August 1861

AM I NOT A BEAST AND A BROTHER? The universal emancipation of mankind is tho conception of a petty mind. In thc race towards perfection, we have far out- stripped such antiquated and rudimentary ideas. The time ha's arrived to cast aside our old and narrow prejudices in favor of the human species. The great achievement of our epoch is to bo tho emancipation of the brutes. The hour lias arrived, and so has the man. Lord Raynham, fresh from linendraping reform, is to be the hero of this now crusade?the AVilborforce of oppressed brutnlity. He is a practical man, not much given to talk, and therefore wo bavo heard little of his speeches in or out of Parliament. Ho has gone straight to tho point, by intro- ducing a bill for securing?in part, at least their due privileges to brutes; and as it appears that a retrogado Houso of Commons bas refused to allow the measure to go any further this year, wo hasten to lay a description of it before our renders. As its main object is lo secure his du...

The Courier. MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 August 1861

MONDAY, AUGUST 12, 1861. On several occasions allusion bas been made iu these columns to the Electric Telograph department; unfortunately we have never been able to speak in favorable terms. Various correspondents, also, have submitted to the public a mass of facts revealing the existence of a system discreditable to those whose especial duty it is actually to. disburse the public moneys. From the beginning tho Elec- trics Telegraph has gone wrong, and those who-have the superintendence of the   whole department, including its chief oflicer, have'been remarkably insensible and indifferent to well-founded blame. The contracts for construction of the lilies were acceptedon terms favorable to the public exohequor, but they have, wc believe, been well and faithfully per- formed. On this point, therefore, no charge of profuseness can be made; it is only when the details of tho management of the lines come to be considered that faults arise to view, and grave faults do &a...
