THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 24 April 1869

THE MONTH. The event of the month has been tho appoint ment of a Parliamentary oommittee to inquire into the oases of bribery that have lately come to the Burfaoe. It is not very long since the Liberal journals proclaimed the existence of a body formed for the purpose of corruptly influencing Parliament, but a large section of the public then thought the charge too monstrous for belief, and a section of the Assembly was sufficiently powerful to . pre Tent- a genuine investigation. . How stands the case at,, present ? Tho existence of the association is acknowledged, the names of its prominent members are known ; we have ascertained tho amount banked for the further ance of their designs, and we have got hold of BOine of the miserable recipients of these infamous wages. Of ? oourse the indi rldwals out of whom the information has been octorted deny that the money was to be wed for any but ' legitimate' purposes. .Some 'affect ignorance altogether.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We are glad to see that South Australia - is taking the lead in cheap telegraphing. ' From May-day forward, in South Australia,, messages of ten words will be transmitted ten ' miles for sixpence, seventy miles for a shil ling, a hundred^ and fifty miles for one and ? sixpence, a^d to the boundary for two shilling?, ' so 'that, in effeot, the scale of charges will' have been reduoed one-half. Taking' every {hing into Recount, it is extremely spirited for South Australia to venture upon such a step, and yet we have no doubt that common sense ? bas as much to do as courage in originating the idea. Sonth Australians as well as ourselves' have discovered that under existing circum stances the Telegraph department is a some what ' losing ' ' concern, but, ' unlike us, they have recognised the only possible mode of making it pay— the' lpwerii^'g 'of the scale of charges, so' as to ~l render tele graphing as popular aa 'cheap 'postage, and ' tljey are - willing' to run'ihe...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News for Home Readers — 15 May 1869

QUEENSLAND. Mb Charles Cowfer, Jan., in a letter on Pastoral Belief, published in the Brisbane Courier of the 9th nit., expresses Ms belief that the cry of insecurity of tenure, originally raised by the representatives of pastoral occu pants' in Parliament for party purposes, has done more injury tban any act of Parliament has or ever will do. It ia this cry, he says, originated in this way that has shaken the con fidence of English capitalists, if it is shaken at all ; and he believes that merchants and the managers of banka have been more frightened by the apeechos of representatives of the pas toral interest in Parliament than by anything else. Late Queensland papers record bad news from the Gulf country. The following is an extract from a letter received during' the first week in April, by a gentleman in Eockhamptoh : — ' We have had fearful heavy floods, higher by 4 ft. 6 in. than ever before known on the sta tions.

THE WRECK OF THE HURRICANE. The wreok of the Hurricane is remarkable from ' the total absenoe of ' those acoeBSories which render tales of the sea thrillingly ter rible. The ship got into the fairway at the entrance to Fort Phillip, and, with pilot on board and the wind off the land, stood on her course, officers, crew and passengers rejoicing at the successful termination of their voyage, when a scraping sound told that the ship had come in contact with some hard body, but the shock wan so slight that it was doubtful whether it was a rock or a pieoe of floating wreck that had been encountered. Another sorapo, and it wub then deemed ad visable to sound the well. The trial led to the belief, too hastily arrived at, that no injury had been received. Twenty minutes more and the ship was evi dently settling by the head. 'Six feet of water in the hold.' A fearful cry when heard in mid-ocean, but not at all alarming in a land- i locked, shallow bay.
