TO THE PUBLIC OF QUEENSLAND. No.III. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 August 1861

TO THE PUBLIC ;OP QUEENSLAND. No. m. Fellow, Colonists,?In ngnin1 addressing you on thc indictment of the Courier news p-iper for ¦libel, 1 wish it-to be thoroughly, understood that 1 consider thu Upper House quito unworthy of being brought so fre- quently under your notice. Nothing that I could say with reference to that house would differ much from your present estimate of it. I wish again to'direct your attention to tho vital question involved in this law proceed- ing, and I believe that you will enter as partisans into this dispute, quite indifferent to the fact that it is our lending paper which is tho defendant,, but keeping steadily in mind that the difficulty admits of only one solution, aud that .must bo tho stern incul- cation of this lesson upon our present and future governing powers :?that, whatever political rights you may allow to lio in abey- ance or disuse, the right of fearlessly criticis- ing political men and political measures, you will not only always claim, bu...

NEWS AND NOTES. CLXVIII. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 August 1861

NEWS AND NOTES             BY A SYDNEY MAN. CLXVIII. Permit me to congratulate you on the making of your literary and political     fortune. Responsible government has brought to the press the honors of martyr- dom, and to Brisbane, I see, a very carnival   of Jim Crowism. It is recorded of John Wilkes—though, probably merely a smart   slander—that, on being reproached for the   part he took, in suppressing the Gordon riots, as being a departure from that thick and—thin popular adhesion for which the Wilkesites were famous, he replied, with   peculiar dryness of expression, "but I never was a Wilkesite!" And so with re- gard to the honorable Dr. Hobbs if an unreasonable creature you, for instance— thinks proper to reproach that gentleman with the inconsistency of his recent votes with former speeches about freedom from nomineeism...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TUESDAY, AUGUST 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

IPSWICH. 30 (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) he TUESDAY, AUGUST 13. SERMONS were preached on Sunday last, st tho Congregational Church, on behalf of tho London Missionary Society, by the Rev. Mr. Draue. Collections were made in the morn- ing and ovening, but I have not heard their amount exactly. In the morning sermon the preacher took for his text Acts xv, 8, 9. He remarked on the religion endowments common to the Jew and tho Gentile. Ordi- nary religion, ho said, manifested itself equally among Jews and Gentiles. In speaking of modern missions he would have his hearers take moderate views of them ; some persons regarded them as usoless, others lauded them constantly. It was to be observed that in the churches which wero planted among the heathen were the same life and power which were in other Christian churches, although not developed to tho same extent. He then enumerated some of the tangible results. There were some four- teen missionary societies in Great Britain, about the same ...

The Courier. THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 1831. THE proceedings of the second session of the Queensland parliament have not been of a character to sustain that oxnggerated reputation for superior wisdom which our senators had previously obtained. It is true that our representatives have beeu constant in their attendance and most persevering in the discharge of their legislativo functions. It is true that the Real Propei ty Aotand the Municipalities' Act, both excellent mcas-urcä, initiated by the government, have become law ; but in order to faithfully depict the histoiy of the session, other tints thau the couleur de rose in which that abstract and brief chronicle - tho vice -regal speech - so lavishly indulges, must bo employed. That imposing failure, the Civil Service Bill, the mutilation of the Privileges Bill, and the resignation and subsequent reten- tion of office by one of the ministers of the crown, are harsh features in the political painting. If few of our colonial legislatures could succeed ...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

MELBOURNE MARKETS. We have papers from Melbourne to the 3rd instant. The Customs revenue collected during the week amounted to £22,264 7s. 2d. From the Argus we take the subjoined : The Customs returns for the next week ..... as the accounted value of £120,566, and the exports at £315,604, the balance being in favor of the former to the sum of £104,952. The excitement attending the elections has given a check to all branches of trade in town. Country orders for flour have come   forward, to some extent, this afternoon, and sales have consequently been more readily effected, without, however, influencing any change in prices. In the share market, sales are reported of National Bank of Australasia shares at £3 9s. 6d.; Australasian Insurance Company, at £1 10s. ; Colonial Insurance Company, at I8s. ; Victoria Life and General, at £3 ; Vic- toria Fire and Marine, at £3 2s.

Letter to the Editor. GERMAN IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

Letter to the Editor.   GERMAN IMMIGRATION. SIR,-In today's paper we perceive an article from your Ipswich correspondent, alluding to a correspondence regarding Gorman immigra- tion, published in tho Ipswich Herald of Friday last, in answer to which we beg to reply the following : It is quite true that we received several orders for immigrants, among the rest also that one your correspondent refers to. Wo transmitted these orders to our friends in Bremen, informing the latter, at the same time, that our Mr. Heussler would shortly depart for Europe, to arrange himself all necessary particulars with them regarding passage, &c. In consequence of these arrangements the execution of tho first orders was certainly longer delayed than we anticipated, our Mr. Heussler not having been able to start as early as he first intended. To make such arrangements was, however, done entirely for the benefit of the immigrants. We wished Mr. Heussler might himself supervise the nece...
