NATIONAL SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

NATIONAL SOCIETIES. To introduce a body in disreputable company, or to ' damn it with faint praise,' is the safest means of injuring the body and escaping the consequences of the offence. The natives of Scotland and Ireland, resident in Brisbane, have formed societies of a benevolent cha racter, to aid such of their fellowcoun trymen as may come amongst them with advice, assistance in procuring employment, small loans ; and, in one of the cases, medicine aud medical at tendance to the members of the society in cases of sickness. Experience has proved that organisations of this sort were required in the present circum stances of the colony, aud that in no way were the objects so likely to be successfully carried out as by enlist ting in the work the love of country of the difficulties and circumstances of the mass x-f new arrivals, and '^if fcfi- 'Tttniiri nflfjapolptinn Ltnffci \j *'' eitiiei1 -alana, Uiey nnyte in a condition where, without friendy help, they would suffer pain, hun...

DEFECTS OF THE ELECTORAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

DEFECTS OF THE ELECTORAL LAW. We took occasion some time ago to draw attention to the inexplicable pro ceedings of certain gentlemen in con nection with the revision of the Elec toral Boll. As time elapsed, the manoeuvres explained themselves. The interest thatseenred Mr. Hbbbert's Election set about strengthening their ranks. In this there is nothing that is not highly commendable. A stagnant state of public opinion is the most dan gerous enemy to a community of free men. -Whether it arises fromjpeneral indifference to the questions affecting the public, on the one hand, or from the destruction of freedom of discussion on the other, it is equally dangerous. When such is the case, liberty is easily taken away; oppression is introduced without much difficulty. Therefore,, in ! adverting to the exertions of the party we have alluded to, we guard ourselves 'from condemning anything like the exercise of their political rights on .tbeir part On the contrary, for the reasons alleged, we r...

ME. JORDAN'S LETTERS ON IMMIGRATION IRREGULARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

MB. JORDAN'S LETTERS ON IM MIGRATION IRREGULARITIES. The mail just received from England has brought communications from Mr. Henrt Jordan, Mr. J. B. Whcock6, and Messrs. Mackat, Baines & Co., which may be looked upon as the de fence that these gentlemen intend to make to the charges brought against them in connection with the irregulari ties on board the immigrant ships Sunda and Bockhampton. It will be remem bered that the* 'two vessels named passengers, for immorality, and for mis management, so far in excess of all preceding immigrant ships to this co lony, that the people of Bockhampton and Brisbane resolved to call upon the Executive, to investigate the charges which were noised abroad as to the manner of selecting emigrants, the con duct of officers, and the fitting up and providing of vessels employed to cany emigrants to Queensland. These charges, and theeyidenoe in support of them, must be still fresh in the minds of the colonists-; most of them were proved beyond a...

POLITICAL PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

POLITICAL PROSPECTS. Tee coming session of Parliament is pregnant with more than ordinary im portance to the colony. It is uulike the first session of the first Parliament — the dawn of a new political life — the initiatory effort in self-government. Nor will it, we hope, be a mere series of fealty and imperfect enactments with little or no opposition, like the Parliamentary sessions that followed. It will not, like the late session of the present Parliament, meet with a newly formed Opposition, the opinion of which had not yet fairly gone abroad amongst its fellow-colonists. The circum stances in which the future Session is called - together are widely different from those in which its predecessors met. Queensland is entering into a new phase of Parliamentary existence, and the session, commencing in April next, is destined to witness its developcment, we trust, with happy effect. Imperfectly repre senting the colony as it does, its action is looked forward to with anxi ous expecta...

VALUE OF THE CENSUS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

VALUE OF THE CENSUS. In another column of our present issue we publish a return of the population of the colony, divided into electorates, at the taking of the Census in the pre sent year. The return is copied from the Queensland Times, which appears to be specially privileged, in obtaining possession of an approximate docu ment, at a time when tbe depart ment from which it should come to the public, is not prepared to issue any re turn as autlientic. Such being the state of tbe case, the document most for the present rest on the authority of our contemporary j but seeing that it is a return of the population iu Electorates — and remembering our contemporary's connection and inspiration — it is not difficult to believe that it is a copy of one of those official approximates fur nished to a Cabinet, to enable it to prepare its programme for a coming campaign. This surmise is borne out by the concluding sentence of our contemporary's remarks, intro ductory of the return ; and, the ex ...

NOVELTIES IN RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

NOVELTIES IN RAILWAY' CONSTRUCTION. Not infrequently when the proprietors of patent medicines find their qnackery a little stale, or the publishers of vapid novels discern a felling off in the num - ber of subscribers, they have recourse to that peculiar form of advertisement — a paid-for paragraph. Thus Professor Houowat distributes bis patronage and his puffs, condescending to write his own eulogia on the merits of his pills, and to insinuate under the guise of an. editorial note his own vivid ap preciation of their miracles. Thus Mr. FrrzaiBBON suggests, and dictates, and supplies argument, and authority, and information, all tending to support his somewhat faded pretensions. Nor is this to be wondered at. Quackery of all kinds has a keen instinct in discover ing its own requirements. . -. There has been a prettydecent ting ' tt^SiSf^&mtlKmg ? this gentleman. ..

THE COMING SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

THE COMING SESSION. The Gazette has spoken, and we learn that at last there is some definite period fixed for the Parliament of Queensland to assemble. The Ministry have mustered courage, and have desired to face their opponents. The vivifying in fluence 'which sufficed to stop a paper has not mustered strength enough to stay an Assembly ; and we shall, some time next month, be told what in the ministerial providence will be the fate of the colony of Queens land. We may have an Electoral bill — we may have a Districts Courts Bill — - we may have a Municipal Institutions bill — we may even have an Insolvency act; but we don't doubt for an instant, deriving a lesson from experience, that the one .which mpsi engages -the Minis terial attention wiube that which least compromises themselves. They will defer to the wisdom of the House on the merely technical portions of legislative ingenuity; and as to the rest they will do then as they have done before— make cata-paws of the Upper House,...

GLOOMY PROSPECTS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

GLOOMY PROSPECTS. The disastrous weather, which seems so reluctant to leave us, has come at a time when the colony could least bear the loss which must be its inevitable result It is not easy at this instant to conceive the amount of damage which the recent floods have inflicted upon all classes of the community. The small storekeeper in the lower parts of our towns — the farmer on the banks of our creeks — the squatter on the Conda mine and in the distant North and North-west — the carrier up or from the interior— all must feel the influence of this great and trying visitation. And we shall feel it as a people the more, that the comparative cessation of immi gration from the old couutry will render us less able to meet these injuries than bad that immigration been left to its legal and natural course we should have been. Add to these circumstances a enterprise throughout the colony are evay day more and more cripplefl Queensland, vrhidl four years mgo .% gao so well, lias becomes m...
