IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) TUESDAY (YESTERDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861

IPSWICH. (EROSI OUR OWN COllRKSI'ONnENT.) TUESDAY (YESTERDAY.) Tun collection of the Bishop's oQ'erinir, com- menced at the Roman Catholic Chapel on Lady Diy, was completed on Sunday, and I havo heard that the whole amount exceeded £300. This, I i-uppose, is an effort of pure voluntaryism, and if the efforts made at other places are as great, tho learned bishop will not fiud his charities cramped for want of a princely income. Speaking of voluntaryism, I saw a report of some meeting in a Scotch paper the other day-the Ayr Advertiser I think it was. It was a meeting of the Presbytery of Irvine, if I recollect rightly, and1 Dr. Ling was there, complaining of the Presbytery for sanction- ing tho act of t.hß Synod of the Church of Scotland in New South Wales, in deposing him. It was at Irvine ho was ordained. Some person present observed that by join- ing the voluntaries, Dr. Lang had put him- self out of the pille of the Church of Scot- land. Dr. Lang argued that it was impos- sible he...

The Courier. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861

Wíft Comm W£Df?EXt>AT, AUGUST 21, 1801. IT is not easy to decide whether the news reoeiv.ed by tbe last mail from home, or from the United States, is the more ex- oil iog or appalling. Each reader will muso on it from his own point of view. Some will look at (ho evils of civil war in a country' peopled by our own kindred, and very toinbre thought» will arisa in the minds of others, discolored with all the pro- spective horrors consequenttipnn a rising of tlio'slaves in the south. The position of tho United States-rising for the nonce ia niore familiar than appropriate term-is certainly one which will not fail to leceive earnest and sympathetic consi- deration.,None,can see that hitherto pro- mising embodiment of tho most advanced principles, both social and political, in its present lorn and distracted condition, without a shudder ; and yet, if slavery in a nation speaking the English lan «uago, with its historical associations almost exclusively British, and with its laws, custo...

BUSH LIFE IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861

BUSH LIFE IN QUEENSLAND. SOME few weeks since, w reprinted from the Australian and New Zealand Gazette, the first portion of the letter of a German lady on the above subject. We now extract the continuation of the same from a recent number of the same paper : " The Australian natives of both sexes grow remarkably fast, and their body is perfectly developed at the age of from ten to twelve years. Their life is proportionately very short, the average age not exceeding thirty- six years, and an old man of fifty is as great a rarity as a centenarian in Europe. The circle of their intellectual attainments is so very confined that a half-grown child is equal in knowledge to the " oldest inhabi- tant," whilst, on the other hand, many little traits peculiar to children in other countries, and abandoned when they grow up, are retained to their latest day. Thus their childish love of fun and frolic, games and amusements, characterises the careless life these children of the soil lead when gro...

Letaer to the Editor. TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861

Letter to the Editor TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION.   SIR,-It is now some three or four years since a few " know nothings" resident in Brisbane, drew ihe attention of the Sydney government to the necessity of establishing communication, by means of a submarine telegraph, with Moreton Island. The rea- sons then adduced were considered strong enough to warrant the executive in placing a sum of money on the estimates, sufficient to commence operations, and I believe, long ere this, the arrangements would have been successfully carried out, if a few individuals where ideas are as contracted as their vision, had not stepped in the way, and stayed pro- ceedings. Separation subsequently ensued, and the government of the young colony, in commencing telegraphic operations, unfor- tunately fixed upon the customs station at the mouth of the river as their starting point, instead of the pilot station near Cape Moreton. Now, sir, permit me, as an old stager, and one who has had somethin...

VALUE OF THE UNION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 21 August 1861

VALUE OF THE UNION. ONE of the greatest benefits to the American people, of that Union which Davis and his fellow traitors are endeavoring to destroy, has beeu our entire exemption from the enormous war expenses with which all the nations of Europe are constantly burdened. Isolated from the rest of the world-hold- ing the greater part of the continent in our own possession-we have had no powerful or ambitions neighbour threatening our borders and by his own warlike preparations keeping us in a state of alarm, and forcing us to muiutniu in pence cosily armies and navies for our protection. In this happy exemption lies one of the secrets of our wonderful prosperity. Wo have not had a largo portion of our able-bodied young men diverted from Gelds of productive labor to the unproductive employment of sol- diering. The nation has been able to devote all its powers to subduing the fertile wilderness of the West, and perfecting the useful arts of civilization. It has not been compelled to ...
