The Courier. TUESDAY, AUGUST 27, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 August 1861

mt v -.,':??':- .-. - t TUnsnAY, AUGUST27, IS«. f _"_ 'J THE first emotions of ¡surprise and sorrow at the new American révolution having passed away, we are now able to examine more- calmly the oiicunistaticss bv which it is surrounded, and to estimate, with some degreo of probable accuracy, the consequence of the movement. The immediate impulse created by the news of the North and South having arrayed themselves against each other, was one of regret, for the dissolution of that won- derful Union, accompanied by a feeling of hopefulness for the oause of freedom and humanity, in the possibility of bin very being abolished by tho victory of the Free States. The spirit of JOHN HitoWN, of Ussawattorinc, seemed to sway the course of events, and Harper'« Ferry and Charleston appeared about to wilness the triumph of those principles for which BttoWN and his companions offered up so vast a sacrifice. A moro c.'ireful examination of tho true state of the cuso ¡.hows the fallacy of these ear...

NEWS AND NOTES. CLXIX. [A portion of our Correspondent's communication appeared in yesterday's paper.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 August 1861

NEWS AND NOTES.     BY A SYDNEY MAN. CLXIX. [A portion of our Correspondent's communication appeared in yesterday's paper.] A POOR fellow named Thomas Youll, a stonemason, has been killed hy falling from the top of a quarry in Duke-street. He .was picked np, dreadfully crushed, hist Thursday morning, and died soon after- wards. In all probability ho was drunk nt the time of the accident ; hut the manner io which such dangerous places are left ex- posed is absolutely abominable. It always seems nocessary that at least one life should be sacrificed before a remedy is applied to the danger. It is a good job that your steamer hasn't to call at Newcastle now for coal. The minors are on strike. About a thousand of them have left off work, and all the pits and .wonting places are deserted. They talk of.' renting mineral ground, and opening mine _s on their own account. Concerning ti je cause of the dispute, a correspondent in t he local paper furnishes some partic...

Letters to the Editor. MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 27 August 1861

Letters to the Editor MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. SIR,-At the meeting of the Municipal Council ,this afternoon, a letter from the Town Clerk-which. I presume will appear in your report of the proceedings-was pro- duced by the Mayor and read, withdrawing his resignation, and stating that it was ten- dered while smarting under the unmerited insults and charges made by Alderman Mayne ; and, assuming that the council know nothing about business, presumed to give us a lecture upon the advisability of having all charges made by any alderman against, the Town Clerk in writing, Now, Sir, it was in my knowledge before I entered the room that he had informed a brother alderman that he intended to resign on that day. He evidently thought that we could not do without him, and anticipated that we should have to ASK HIM to save us from so dire a calamity. I believe he requested His alderman above mentioned to be present to hear him give in his resignation, but having done so, mid finding that a notice of ...

THE AMERICAN CRISIS. D7 "JOHN DUNMORE LANG, D.D. To tho Edltor of the Brilith Standard. -"BIB,-It has.appeared to rae, since my return Ho Europo from Austr.ilia in the month of February last, that the Protestant clergy and 'people of Great Britain and Ireland were scarcely doing their duty by remaining silent and inactive in the present crisis, when the two great sections of the American people, our kinsmen after the flesh, and our fellow, protestants in the great struggle with Rome, were marshalled agninst each other in battle ..array, with ministers of religion on both sides, many, if not most, of whom we cannot but regard ar, brethren beloved in the Lord, praying respectively " that God would de- fend the, right." In auch circumstances it ia doubtless politic aud proper for the Go- vernment of this country to maintain a strict ¡neutrality, and equally politic and proper .tfbr the Parliament to deprecate any public (discussion of the character and merits and .claims of the contend...

GAYNDAH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ^ AUGUST 17. ., A PUBLIC meeting took place at the rooms of the debating society, for the purpose of tak- ing into consideration the rules prepared by the committee, having for their object its transformation into a School of Arts. All were read seriatim, and passed with slight amendments, after a good deal of argument.

WJSDNJiSDAT, AUGUST 28, 1801. Je& THERE is something rather dramatic in tho pause of hostilities ut Now Zealand, while a Viceroy especially intrusted with the task of dealing with the diplomatic part of the business leaves the coast of Africa and returns to the scene of his for- mer labors. Sir GEORGE GREY'S public career lias been marked by extraordinary success. From the time when-then a subaltern in a reginiont of the line-he took up the wallet to explore the Anstra lian continent, down, to the peiiod of his last departure from. England to rc&ume the government of tho Capo Colony, ho may be said to have always "alighted upon his feet." Whether circumstances Lave peculiarly favored him, or ho has possessed a peouliar facility of diverting ciroumstances to his own purposes, it is certain that his successes have been marked and conspicuous., Under his administration the affairs of South Aus- tralia wcro redeemed from n condition of insolvency io one of prosperity.

That this prolonged suspenso and c ntinued uncer- tainty as to what may be the issuo of tho negotiations still carrying on there, has its attendant evils cannot be doubted. We feel them even here in the general unwillingness to enter into any per- manent arrangements for the future, tho success of which depends upon the continu- ance of peace; and we feel them in the stoppage of that gentle but continual stream ot immigration which was materially, though imperceptibly, adding to our growth and our strength ; but,...
