COTTON CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 August 1861

COTTON CULTIVATION. Mb. Dowse, the secretary to the commis- sioners for tho Queensland branch bf tho Intercolonial Exhibition of 1862, has favored us with tho following copy of a letter re- ceived by him from Mr. Job Pratten, farmer, of Cooper's Plains, distant about six to spvon miles from this city. The result of Mr. P.'s experiment, as far as regards the quantity produced, tniy be considered very satisfactory, particularly when the past wet season hos to be taken into account. We cannot refrain from complimenting Mr. Pratten for the praiseworthy zeal displayed by him in carrying out so successfully this new branch of colonial industry; and we may further mention that Mr. Pratten, some fivo. years since, cultivated to great perfec- tion a field of some considerable extent with wheat. Unfortunately, at that lime no means wero iu existenco to convert the grain into flour, with the exception of hand mills?a process too laborious to induce, at that time, tho further cultivation of tha...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 August 1861

¦¦'Agriculture!'' TiiE/pnst month has been avery busy one with those engaged in' agricultural and horticultural pursuits, the planting for spring crops having kept all the ayailablo labour busy at work in getting the ground prepared and in ordor for their 'reception. But we would soriously advise those who have hitherto confined their atten- tion to the cultivation of ordinary produc- tions, to. pause before they expend their cnpital and labour upon articles which recent importations from the Southern colonies have' convinced us can be placed in the market at a figure very much below the ex- pectations of the Queensland farmer. We will instance only two items: Potatoes are quoted in the Tasmania markets at from BO-'. to 70s. per ton; and maize, in. the New South Wales market nt from 3s. to 3s. 9d. per bushel ; the latter a higher,price than ha's been obtained for some years past. With those facts slarinsr our farmer* in the face, we certainly think they would bo advantag- ing themse...

REVIEW. QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, by JOHN DUNMORE LANG, D.D., A.M. London: Edward Stanford. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 August 1861

REVIEW. QnEEKSIiAJJD, AuSTUAIiIA, by JonN DtJN moiik Lang, D. D., A.M. London: Edward Stanford. Dr.--Lang is apparently a firm believer in the truth of the poet's maxim? " A want of occupation is not rest*' '! T"A*iiilnd quite vacant is a-mind distrest." -;" Accordingly, during .his, recent- trip to England, he employed himself for a great portion of the time .in literary, labors,::,pf, which the volumo named above is one of the results. It is ii very complete nnd com- prehensive account of tho colony of Queens- land, written in an entertaining and popular stylo. Much of the matter in the volume will'n'ot'be very new to thoso who havo.rend his former work entitled "Cooksland," and who have also been acquainted with the Doctor's contributions to tho press of New South Wales and Queensland during tho last six or eight years. The book has been written for the enlightenment of the British public upon points about which it is very desirable for thc interests of Queensland that persons in...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL AND 'J IIB JUDGE. Tnn Legislative Council of Queensland has at lust acquired celobrity, though notexuclly | of that kind which good and wise men would desire to attain. It never had tho confidence of the public, and tho only sen-1 sible thing which has originated in that [ house was tho adoption of tho resolutions declaring that its constitution ought to bo framed on an elective basis. Certainly, nothing could show more strongly tho ne- j cessily for making the members of that body distinctly responsible to tho people, than tho conduct of the nominees of tho Crown from first to last, in reference to the Supreme Court Bill. They began by refusing to receive n petition, most respectfully worded from the inhabitants ol Brisbane, upon tho j frivolous and fatso pretext that they wore i incompetent to deal with any measure by which the Judge's position might bo affected. Having insulted tho people, their noxt.step is to insult tho Crown, and violate the roynj prero...

THE MORETON BAY TRAMROAD, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 August 1861

THE MORETON BAY TRAMROAD, &c. Two acts havo been passed during, the present session of parliament' which stand out boldly from tho general run of legislation in tho Australian colonies. We allude to the tho Brisbane Bridge Act, and the Moreton Bay Tramway Company's Act; the latter of which has, for some time past, excited considerable attention. We take it, first, us embodying all those provisions which, in any such bill, are not only desirable, but necess ary alike for the protection of the public interests and of the shareholders undertaking to carry it-into effect.   ' Tho question of internal communication is one which has been discussed ad nauseam in all. the colonies. To this colony, the con- struction of a,safe, certain, and; economical road to tho intorior, was of paramount im- portance, becauso it eminently depends upon such a modo of transit for its prosperity.

Judging by tilt' division which took pince in. the Assembly on Thursday last, the Secre- tary of State is ulmost excusable should ho assume that Coolie Immigra- tion is ono of tho p pillar requirements of'the day. The debate on that occa- sion possessed ut least otic refreshing feature; tho aridity of a discussion, whose distinguishing characteristics were the somewhat stale platitudes of Mr. ll. Cribb, anti thc philanthropic generali- ties of the Colonial Secretary, was tempered by ono solitary and enlivening oiisis.

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MONDAY (YESTERDAY). [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 13 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Monday (Yesterday). The Ipswich Herald last Friday published a translation of some letters, by which it ap- pears that a German immigrant, Mr. Abel, paid a Brisbane firm for four immigration orders for the passage of his mother and three sisters from Germany. The orders were re- ceived early in this year. The family sold their house and three gardens, and wrote to Mr. Abel here to announce their coming. But apparently after waiting for some time for an answer to a previous application, they wrote, when quite ready for the journey, to the agents, Messrs. Bischoff and Co., of Bremen, who then wrote to say that they had received many similar orders from Bris- bane, but had not yet come to any arrange- ments with the Brisbane agent as to passage, and in fact had not accepted the agency. Another family is mentioned as being placed in a similar predicament. His shocking to think what misery might be in- flicted by this reckless way of doing business....
