DEATH OF LORD CHANCELLOR CAMPBELL. (Abridged from the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 August 1861
DEATH OF LORD CHANCELLOR CAMPBELL. low- (Abridged from tho 2ÏJIICJ,) Tun public will sympathise with us in the deep regret with which we announce the suddon death of Lord Chancellor Campbell. He died on Sunday evening. He had at- tended a cabinet in the couiso of the day, and had cuteitaineda party at dinner on Saturday evening with that keen and hos- pitable enjoyment of society which always distinguished him. Ile retired to rest in his accustomed health and spirits, and passed away without giving an alarm. Shortly be- foro eight o'clock on Sunday morning his servant upon entering his bedroom found bim seated in a chair motionless, with his head thiown back and blood oosing from his mouth. Medical aid was immediately in attendance, hut he bad evidently been dead at least two hours. It is believed that tho causo of death was the rupture of one of the great arteiies in the region of the heart.

The Courier. TUESDAY, AUGUST 20, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 August 1861
Ä Courier«. TUESDAY, AUGUSTW, 1S01. THE transmission of a Supplemc otary Mail to England gives us an opportunity of TC .marking upon the state of the I_,abor j&L'arket in this colony as it is now, a ¿id will be for some time to come. It [car ,rj0t bo denied that Queensland actually o' jers superior in- ducements to those of any other Australian colony. These induce ments apply with equal force to the. immigrant who brings out with him. a fmall amount of capital, and to him -who Vías no capital ex- cept his bones and sinews. We'Tiavo never been admirers of t he "WAKEFIKLD theory, which makes the "noticing" for hire compul- sory upon tho im .migrant who comes without capital, by plac nig a high upset price on the land ; and we are therefore glad to give the utmost publicity to the fact that the Queens- land gover ¿ment offers freo grants of land to persons paying their own passages. The imrnig'/ant who can command a small capital can Belect from thousands of acres of land of f...
Letters to the Editor. QUEENSLAND SQUATTAGES; OR THE TENANT HIS OWN LANDLORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 August 1861
Letters tu the Edätoa«. QUEENSLAND SQIJATTAGES ; OR THE TENANT HIS OWN LANDLORD. Sin,-The statistics of the colony just pub- lished disclose an existing state of things so extraordinary as to bo almost incredible, had wo not every day ocular demonstration,that the government of Queensland, secure of a standing majority of sheep and cattlo repre- sentatives-to whom they have sold them- selves, soul and body, for place and salary aro deaf to tho voice of public opinion, and wilfully blind to the public welfare. To show whether the above is an idle asser- tion or not, I shall proceed to figures, and let whoever is able eotitravert the deductions to b« drawn therefrom. In the revenue for I860, therontnnd assess- ment is set down at£lüó~,6"2¡3; and as, judging from certain late returns in the Gazette, the rent appears to bo equal to one-third of the assessment, it follows that tho rent of the runs in this colony may be estimated at one fonrth of the above amount, or in round numbers, £40...

His Honor stated his intention of filling all persons summoned to attend as jurors who tailed to be present to answer to their names at 10 o'clock on Wednesday next, to which day the Court was adjourned. VOLUNTEER HIELES, No, 1 COMPANY. A meeting of the No. 1 Volunteer Company was held at tho barracks last evening to decide upon the election ' of officers from amougst tho.ce gentlemen who had been selected for examination, but in consequence of no report having been received from Lieutenant Colonel O'connell as to the pro- ficiency of the competitors, no election took place.

NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 20 August 1861
NATIVE POLICE REPORT. [CONTRIBUTED.] THE first part of the committee's exonerating &nbsp; duties was the very difficult, and as it proved, &nbsp; &nbsp; impracticable attempt to clear the good fame of Mr. WHEELER and Mr. HARDIE, the first of whom was believed by the public to have wantonly murdered certain aboriginals, on a certain day, in the Fassifern scrub; and the second to have tried to prevent a judicial inquiry. We have no means of ascertaining whether the committee were aware when they com- menced their labors that Lieutenant WHEELER, had sent in a report in which he stated that he and the troopers under his command had shot the blacks at Fassifern. But when Mr. MORISSETT was examined, it clearly appeared that Lieutenant WHEELER had given in a report in face of which he would not be likely to deny when brought before the committee, that he had shot some blacks at Fassifern somewhere about the 24th December. We could shew, if neces- sary, that it is hi...
THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. (From the Correspondent of the Manche-ter Examiner and Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861
THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. (From tho Correspondent of tlio ikmcht-ttr Examiner and Times ) NEW YORK, Tuesday, June 11. THE want of rifled cannon, and the suicidal policy of placing 'inexperionced civilians in prominent military positions, has cost us a defeat just at the time when it was very im- portant that the1 Confederate force should not be encouraged with the slightest success. Early on Sunday morning, General Butler sent out detachments from Fortress Monroe and Newport News Point, with the intention ofibreaking up kn encampment of tho rebels which he supposed was forming towards Yorktown. When about nine miles from the fortress, and within three miles of their destination, (hice of the regiments strangely came in collision with one another, and before they could mako_ thçmselyes known fired seveial volleys, killing several.,in each body. One of tho regiments which com- mitted this strange blunder was a Gorman legiment, the 7th Steubcn Volunteers'-not the famous New York 7th, b...

THE DOWNS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TOOWOOMBA, AUGUST 17, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861
THE DOWNS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TOOWOOMBA, AUUUST 17,1861. LAND SALE.-A land sale will take place at the Pi iii«? Office, Drayton, on Wednesday, tho 11th September next. The lots to bo sold consist of town and suburban portions situate at Brayton and Toowoomba. Per- haps you can inform us how, or why, it is that Toowoomba land salc3 aro held at Diayton ? No doubt the government have somo weighty reason for their guidance in the matter, but it does really seem somewhat absind that tho Crown Lands Oilice should bo established at Toowoomba, and sales of crown lands situated in Toowoomba, are, for no apparent cause, invariably held in Dray- ton. This proceeding is both unjust and inconvenient to the Toowoombinns, and it is to be hoped that the Executive, now that .parliament is prorogued, will bestow a little consideration upon minor affairs of this nature. COMMERCIAL,- Owing to a favorable change in the weather, business is assuming a more lively aspect. The few fine days whic...
