WEEKLY EPITOME. SATURDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 August 1861

WEEKLY EPITOME.     -------o--------   SATURDAY EVENING. THE leading event of the week was the pro- regation of Parliament, on Tuesday last. The weather was all that could be desired, and the appearance of the military and volunteer companies, who were drawn up in front of the houses of legislature, as a guard of honor to receive the Governor, with the crowd of spectators, lent an air of unusual commotion to Queen-street. Shortly after twelve his Excellency arrived at the Council Chamber, which was crowded to excess, and after announcing his assent to seve- ral bills and receiving the Appropria- tion Bill from the Speaker, read the customary speech, which enumerated the acts passed during the session, and told a flattering tale of tho rapid progress being made by the colony. Official messages were transmitted by electric telegraph to Toowoomba on Thurs- day. Sir Charles Nicholson left Brisbane on Saturday week, by the Telegraph steamer. He has ...

THE MARYBOROUGH WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 August 1861

THE MARYBOROUGH WHARP. SIR,-Your leader of the 21th ultimo, and the record of tho Assembly's proceedings in the same issuo, auout the leasing of the Queen's wharf here, perfectly astonish mo. You certainly were a most deluded and in- cautious individual in accepting the erroneous statements of the Colonial Secretary and Mr. Blakonoy with reference to this matter. Sometime in Octobor last the lease of the Queen's Wharf was offered for sale. The wharf at the timo being in a rotten and dilapidated state. The conditions of sale were that the purchaser should put and keep it in repair, and it was owing to these ridicu- lous and other uncertain conditions attached that I became the purchaser. Previous to the sale I requested, and other- wise used my endeavours with, tho land agent to withdraw tho lease from sale, when he informed mo ho had no power. I then determined, seeing the lunso must be sold, to become tho purchaser if it could bo obtained at a small rental, having at my sole expens...

GENERAL SUMMARY. (From the Home News, June 26,) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 August 1861

GENERAL SUMMARY. (From the Home Kerns, Juno 26,) LORD Palmerston's Government, has, at last, outridden tho storm against which they have been endeavoring to carry the repeal of the Paper Dut)'. All other modes of attack having failed, the Opposition ventured a direct amendment upon the clause for abolishing the duty in the Customs and Ex ciee Bill, and evidently anticipated that they should turn their imposing minority into a small majority. Had they even succeeded, the Administration would not have been im- mediately affected by the result, Lord Pal- merston having resolved in that case, to ap- peal to the country. But they did not suc- ceed, although they appear to have left no stratagems untried to secure their object. The most formidable and least creditable of the devices resorted to in the hope of de- feating the Government, was the attempt to make political capital out of the Galway contract. The histor)' of this trnnsoction, as far as we need Teeu'r' to it here, may be brief...

ROCKHAMPTON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MOVDAY, AUGUST 12,1861. IN my last T omitted a very important item which I now supply. A petition has been carried round the town, and very'extensively signed, and for aught your correspondent knows to the contrary, is now on its pn«sase through the dangers 'of Queensland official- dom. That petition, denuded of the, "stupid verbiago and useless repetition" common to legislatorial and legal documents, is, in sub- stance, as follows :-The petitioners feel the inconvenience and loss resulting from the want of a circuit court. The practico of sending civil and criminal cases .to Mary- borough for decision, is calculated to do feat the law, as rogues often escnpe through the expense and loss pro-eentnrs must suffer when attending court. The petitioners aUo call attention to our increasing population, and the great, distance of our country dis- tricts from Wide Bay, by which the cost of prosecution is greatly increased, and request his Excellenc...

Letters to the Editor. THE MISSING "BEN BOLT." Kangaroo Point, 17th August, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 August 1861

Sitiîievs to tute Edâlin«. THE MISSING "BEN BOLT." Kangaroo Point, 17th August, 1861. SIR,-Can you inform mo for what purpose government officers are appointed? I havo been silly ouough to suppose it was for the public good, hut evidently the placos aro only made for the men. The Ben Bolt has been missing nearly two months. I have reason to believe there arc ton passongcrs on hoard, in addition to my dniigliter's husband, Alexander Smith, and his crew-making in all fourteen souls. She likewise lins on board her Majesty's mails, which, no dotiht, in tho eyes of government, are of much greater consequence than fourteen human beings. It is well known that Smith is a very energetic young man, and would, if possible, under any circyiiiistancus, make a passage : consequently, the inhabitants of Rockhampton were sure something was wrong, and deputations waited upon the har- bor-master scvoral timeá, requesting him to send the boat which he has at his command in search of tho Bon Bolt; but ...

fifi MOXDAr, AUGUST 10, 1S61. THE news received by the recent mail, from Europe, contains but few items of intelligence for congratulation. It is true that we leam that the Emperor of Prance hns recognised VICTOR EM- MANUEL as King bf linly, and thus facilitated tho task of consolidating and placing upon a pcimaueut basis those political rights of tho people of that peninsula, which the heroism and energy of GAR.IBAI.DI have been JO instrumental in proouring for. them. Hut the game file of journals which makes us- ac- quainted with this gratifying fact, also conveys the intelligence ol' the unex- pected death of Count CAVOUR, a states- man whose absence from the Cabinet of Turin at the present moment is as unde- sirable us would have beeu that of GARI- BALDI from the camp some months ago. A' great and good cause, however, al- though it iiiay,bo retarded, can never be defeated by tho death of one single man, however prominent his abilities, or how- ever pure his patriotism.

GREAT FIRE IN LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 19 August 1861

    GREAT FIRE IN LONDON. On the evening of Saturday, June 22, the -metropolis was visited by the most terrific conflagration that has occurred in this .?country since the Great Fire of London. Some idea of the greatness of the catastrophe may be conveyed by the simple statement that the destruction of property is estimated at the stupendous sum of two and a-half or three millions sterling.   The scene of the fire was on the waterside -portion of Tooley-street, nearest London bridge, a locality which has been singularly unfortunate during the last 23 years, some of -the largest fires having occurred there. The outbreak took place in the extensivo range of premises known as Cotton's wharf and the bonded warehouse belonging to Messrs. Scovell. They had an extensive river   frontage, and the whole space on the land   side extending to Tooloy street was covered   with eight or nine warehouses six stories in he...

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) GLADSTONE, August 13. Ir is refreshing in this little quiet seaport, after a fortnight's ab'ence of news, to be able to take up a few copies ol' the Courier, and see what events nie stirring the minds and swaying the actions of men in other parts of the world. The most striking, and to mo the most interesting, items of news embodied in the latest papers are-the in- tention of our sapient legislators to prosecute the Courier for libel, and the adoption by the Assembly of that portion of the native police committee's report which related to 'the amelioration of the aborigines. I con- sider that the government merits the thanks of the public, and especially of all true philanthropists in initiating such a move- ment as that which they now propose on be- half of the blacks. Of course the success of undertaking will depend entirely on the manner in which the scheme is carried out. There nre but few persons to bo found really qualified to occupy th...

IPSWICH. 1 / \ f (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) . _ MONDAY (YESTERDAY). l THINK, tnougli 1 tear ttiat L sliall lind tew to \ agree with me, that I have discovered the { delect in the Grammar Schools' Act. It pro- vides for the establishment of public schools. This it does by pioviding tho greater part of the means out of the public revenue, and re- quiring tho remainder to be raised by volun- tary subscription in the districts where tho schools aro to bo. The first mode of raising the wind is justified by the general benefit which will accrue to tho colony. The second is justified by the convenience of the majority, and the apccittl advantages which will be enjoyed by the districts where schools arc established ; for, evidently, it is impos- sible to found schools at btatod and equal dis- tances over the entire area of a colony so un- equally populated as this is. If this were the full length to which this " How much will you give to have it near yon ?" principle bad been curried, I ...

Risk claims as his sire Waverley, who is so justly celebrated on the Australian turf for the winners he has got, among whom it will be only necessary to mention the name of that old veteran, Veno. Risk is a fine upstanding horso, a little under 16 hands high, and possesses, to an eminent degree, many of the best points to be found in a race-horse. His appearance, on the whole, especially when in raciug con dition, is extremely handsome. His head, however, which is a thorough Waverley one, Is a little loo large, and is inclined to give him rather a heavy appearauce front, this being more particularly noticed fiom the fact of his truly splendid fore hand. He has a fine prominent bold eye, however, and his head, although it would be handsome and more blood-like if smaller, is, on the whole...
