FOURTEEN YEARS WITH THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

FOURTEEN YEARS WITH THE ABORIGINES. THERE is at present living in the town of Brisbane, Queensland, a Mr. James Davies, a man of some substance now, but whose former life was passed in great hardship, privation, and adventure. There is probably no man living who is better able to give information respecting the manners and cus- toms of the Australian blacks, but he has usually been very taciturn on the point. Dr. Lang, however, seems to have overcome this reluctauce, as appears by the following extract from his new work on Queens- land :- James Davies is a son of a Scotch black- smith, who followed his calling first in the Old Wynd, and afterwards at the Broomie- law in the city of Glasgow, about forty years ago. The father brought up his son to his own business, but the latter turned out a bad character, and was transported to New South Wales, per the ship Minstrel, in the year 1824, being only sixteen years of age at the time. His transportation, how-   ever does not ...

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 15 August 1861

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. ed [CONTRIBUTED.' WK do not accuse the committee of gaucherie; neither can we praise them for their dexterity. Their incapacity arose from their being, one and all, inclined beforehand to favour black; and if they had not bc trayod this fact, they must have been dexterous indeed. Tf they had reported the black force essentially inefficient for any duties consistent with the law, and recom- mended a total or even a partial substitution ol'white troopers, their attempts to make the evidence tell the other way might not have been closely scrutinized But as their report turned out to be exactly what it was openly predicted that it would be, before they even commenced their labor.', they cannot expect their work will be (»ken at moro than its real value by the public, how- ever it might be estimated by the Assembly. Our immediate object in reverting to the evidence now, is to show that the committee actually were worthy of tho reputation they got, «nd which afforded...

Local Intelligence.     SOUTH BRISBANE.-A meeting is to be held this evening, at 8 o'clock, at tho Mechanics' Institute, South Brisbane, to adopt the form of a memorial to his Excellency the Gover- nor, praying for the erection of that part of the city into a separate and distinct muni- cipality. This step has been determined upon, we believe, in consequence of the conviction of the ratepayers in that locality that they do not receive ¡i fair share of the benefits arising from municipal rates. ' A QUEER IMPORTATION.-A Brisbano tradesman advertises, in our issue of yester- day, that he intends keeping on hand a stock of''china, glass, earthenware, and every description of virtue, which will bo con- tinually rep'enished upon the arrival of each steamer."

THE SURVEYOR-GENERAL AND THE IPSWICH AGRICULTURAL RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 August 1861

THE SURVEYOR-GENERAL AND TnE IPSWICH AGRICULTURAL RE- SERVE. Silt,-As a significant example of cln?s le- gislation, it is an instructive, if notan agree- able studv, to call the nttention of tim people of Queensland to the manner in which the Surveyor-General ekes out tho Crown lands to the intending agriculturists of this colony, and to compare it with the very different style in which that functionary helps himself. Amongst the recently-published accepted tonders for runs, Mr. Gregory appears io have appropriated to himselT the' trifle of 213 square miles, andas these'tenders do not include the back country, which is generally useless to otherpai-ties, it is not far from the rrnrk to put him down as holding 400 «quare miles of the Crown lands. Now empare this with the way in which effect lins been given to the net of parlia- ment, providing that agricultural reserves «h"uld be established to meet the wants of the people, and to provide for the settlement of the country.

Letters to the Editor. SIR,- On looking over your summary, pub- lished yesterday, I observe in the Registrar- General's report, under the head of Sunday schools, one set down to the Independents. I think that such a mis-statement ought to be corrected, so I send you a list of schools in operation during the year 1860, in connection with that body, withthe number   of children usually attending each, as far as my own personal knowledge serves me. Brisbane and Toowoomba I do not know the number attending. Brisbane,. 1 school Ipswich. 1 do 140 children Little Ipswich, 1 do 43 do North do... 1 do 28 do Ilrcrhcr Mills, 1 do 36 do Toowoomba.. 1 do By this you will perceive there are (6) six schools in full operation in connection with the Independents. The insertion of this correction will oblige Yours truly,     HENRY M. REEVE,   Ipswich, August 14 1861.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 August 1861

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. |fuu "WK liave papers from Adelaide to the 3ist ultimo. The 8. A. Register of that date, adverting to the late postal blunder, by' which a large portion of the mail intended for England had been omitted to bo put on board the mail steamer, says :-Mr. A. Blyth yester- day directed the attention of the government in the House of Assembly to the circum- stance of 300 letters, forming the early por- tion of the Marseilles mail, having been left behind by the Balclutha, and suggested that an official statement on the subject should be made. He wished to know who was to blame, and whether the offenders had been i reprimanded. It seemed that the shipping clerk at the Post-office was to blame in the first instance, mid afterwards the clerk of the Telegraph-office. But there was also n great error in not forwarding intelligence of the oversight to the newspapers as soon as it was known. The Treasurer read a corre- spondence which had taken place ,on the subject between the g...

THE OYSTER [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 August 1861

THE OYSTER* The object of this little book, evidently the work of a generous enthusiast, is to cultivate a healthy feeling about oysters in the mind of.man. That we hare not absolutely neg- lected the oyster the author admits, but he inclines to the belief that it does not occupy that place in our estimation to which its merits entitle it. Like little Jacob in' the Old Curiosity Shop, we require to be taught " what oysters means." We have gone on through every changeful year opening and   eating the oyster without asking whether any and what meaning lies between its shells-icthyophagous Peter Bells into whose hearts the succulent mollusc has never found its_ way, wherever else the pro- cess of assimilation may have gone on. The fact is that, from some cause which we cannot at present explain, the oyster is re- markably deficient in poetical affinities. It is among comestibles very much what the nose is among features. Every portion of the human face, except the central ...

MISCELLANEOUS     FUNERAL OF THE LATE MAJOR WENTWORTH The remains of the late Major D'Arcy Wentworth were conveyed on the 6th instant to their final resting place in the family vault at Parramatta. Although personally, un- known to the majority of the residents of New South Wales (the deceased having spent the greater portion of his life in the sister colony of Tasmania), the funeral was largely at- tended, the cortege including, in addition to the relatives and intimate friends of the family, many old and highly respected colo- nists, as for instance, the venerable Dr. Bland, the Messrs Johnston, of Annandale, Mr. Richard Hill, Mr. James Byrnes, and others whose names our reporter did not ascertain. The mourners and friends assembled at the Sydney Railway Station (whither the re- mains had previously been conveyed) shortly after eleven o'clock, and having reached Par- ramatta by a special train, the procession (strengthened by a large accession of the town...
