ÎRte Courier* ^ - ~."T Jl PUBLISHED DAILY. 1 WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1861. The disorganised, condition of the in- terior districts of New South Wales is a disgrace to her administration, and is cal- culated to move her people to shame and to provoke the contempt of lier neighbours. AU those who, native-born or old colonists, arc proud of their title of Australians must to some extent feel humiliated upon con- templating the magnitude of the system of rapine and murder which lias so long pre- vailed in the senior colony, and the utter futility of every attempt that has been made to put an end to it. On all sides the administration of New South AVnles is assailed by unsparing critics, and de- servedly so ; but it is to bo regretted that in tile sweeping censures which are pub- lished, there is often a want of discrimina- tion and candour which savours of preju- dice and ill nature. Taunts and contumely are heaped upon the people of that colony by tlioso who, whenever tiley can make themse...

VICE-ADMIRALTY COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 July 1864
VICE-ADMIRALTY COURT The following particulars of the of the above court, since it was constituted, have been handed us for publication by a special reporter. From the nature of the report there appears to have been some slight exaggeration. WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15. &nbsp; &nbsp; The court met at five bells, at which time Vice-Admlral Cockle (of the red), President 0f the court, entered, attended upon by Mr. *hal Wright, whose pigtail was awry, and w& &nbsp; tout ensemble was that of a broken down foretopman after a night's dissipation. He was busily engaged in the mastication of honey-dew, an occupation which he appeared to consider anything but a quid pro que for the intense labor entailed upon him in the proper perform- ance of his duty as marline-spike bearer-in-chief to the Admiral. The following members of the court were present, all of them in uniform, and with side arms and revolvers :—Captain Pring, Lieuten- ants Lilley, Jones, and Blakeney (still...

LICENSING MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 July 1864
LICENSING MEETING. MESSRS. Petrie and Edmondstone, presiding Justices. Robert Mills applied for a license for the Cricketers Arms, Petrie Terrace. Mr. Garrick supported the application. Mr. Hamilton's clerk stated that an objection had been made by certain inhabitants of the neighborhood, which had been filed. The objection was read to the &nbsp; &nbsp; effect that the house was situated in no main line of road, that no public-house was required &nbsp; in the neighborhood ; and that much harm was calculated to be done to the working class, a large number of whom resided in the vicinity of the house, if the license were granted. Mr. Garrick argued that the objections were &nbsp; not of a valid character—that the fact of the house being situated in a crowded neighborhood was an argument in favor of the license being granted, and that if a main line of road were absolutely necessary to the granting of a license, many public-houses at present in existence...

The Shorthorns unquestionably take the palm in tho race of progression, but the tterefords, Dovons, Aberdecns, oud Highlanders havo attained a vory good place-a hich position. The Sussox, the Suflblks, tho langhorns, tho runts, have also greatly ad yanccd m size and value.

TOE LEGION OF SONOR. TO TUE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sib,-In j'our impression of to-day wo ob- serve a letter from Mr. J. J. AVatsou, Surgeon Superintendent of the Legion of Honor. As passongcrs, perhaps you will allow ono word from us anent tho hunger he has endured, tho tliirst he has suffered, and the beggary ho has come to, that wo might arrive in Brisbane with our frames invigorated and our morals pure. To all this gammon we give the word bosh. But listen to what ho states : It is " next to impos- sible to govern a luixod class of immigrants where thoso that pay their faro and those that receive free passages aro berthed together, as on boord tho Legion of Honor."

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, JULY 14, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 July 1864
Wb* Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. THUBSDA1', JULY 14, 186J. The publication of the Annual Report . of the Board of General Education lias afforded Bishop Tufnell an oppor- tunity of again repeating in print his oft repeated convictions, that tho majority of the colonists arc opposed to the National System of Education. This pleasing re- laxation, in which tho reverend prelate periodically indulges, no doubt alfords lum much private satisfaction and consolation, and, as experience has shown, fails to alienate the minds of the colonists from that system of public education which tiicir representatives have adopted; The sériions and arguments of the head of the Church of England in Queensland naturally command attention and carry weight from the position of the gentleman promulgating thom,-a weight greater perhaps than the intrinsic value of the arguments and asser- tions merit It is a pity, therefore, that the Bishop should resort to sophistical weapons in order to prove a quati negative ...
