MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 August 1861

MISCELLANEOUS. HALF-TIME AND WHOLE-TIME EnucA TioNAL MEN.-Mr. Roebuck, at the annual distribution of prizes to the successful students attending the Sheffield Collegiate School on Friday last, in the course of his remarks said :-" There are very curious things-I think pretty nearly everything comes before us in the House of Commons. Amongst others I havo lately had my at- tention directed to a system of education, and ono of the many curious results ob- tained from the inquiries which have been instituted into education is this-that half-time men, men who devote only half tho time that, is usually devoted to the obtaining of knowledge.acquiroqui te asmuch knowledge as those who devote their whole time to it. Now, I have no doubt that will appear very heterodox, and the learned gontlemcn will look with wonder at it. But you may work the mind too much. Just as you find in the mero business of lifo, that when you tire a man out he will not do iu the last hour what ho did at thobeginnin...

The jiuimal has been issued under the auspices of the former conductors of the Clarence and IiJchmand Examiner, which of course is still in existence, so that Grafton can now boast of two newspapers. The conductors of tlw new journal state that they started the Examiner by the aid and instrumen- tality of Mr. Clark Irving, who, as soon as ho found the enterprise a successful one, behaved in rather a shabby manner, if the following announcement in the columns of tho Independent is to be relied on,-" Our journal, originally small, was increased in size ; fresh type was added to our stock ; a good connexion had been formed ; agencies, in the widely spread districts were estab lUlied ; and when we thought ourselves " »nod easy men," fu...

NEW ZEALAND. TARANAKI. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 August 1861

NEW ZEALAND. TARANAKI. THE late intelligence from Taranaki is of       the same character as that by several of the   past mails. It is simply that the Province is by courtesy supposed to be in a state of peace, while the settlers live in an uncer- tainty second only to that of actual war. Afraid to cultivate, nay even to traverse the southern country beyond very circum- scribed limits, there exists the deadening in fluence which the prospect of another war with, or at least a raid from, the tribes who have as yet been almost unmolested in their enjoyment of plunder. No one believes in security, and no one cares to expend his energies in restoring the appearance of the country until all danger is past. A little cultivation in the town is talked about, but as a province, its agricultural activity is paralysed. It is to all intents a mere military post, and despite the desire of the settlers to the contrary, must for some time remain...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WEDNESDAY (YESTERDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN COllItESrONDENT.) WEDNESDAY (YESTERDAY.) THE Ipswich grammar school adjourned meeting turned out exactly as your readers have probably anticiptaed. There was a " roll up." The evening was not altogether favorable, but the excitement was at least sufficient to produce a fair muster of forces It will hardly seem creditable to those of your lïrisbano people who have seen the Ipswich court house, that rather more than less than five hundred persons were assem- bled thero before the hour fixed for the meeting. Such, however, is the fact, and thero wore besides, some, though I think not many, outside, who could not gain admis- sion. As tho hour appointed drew near, the absence of the chairman created a feeling of impatience. When he did apponr, however, be was greeted with loud applause. Mr. O'sullivan, who made his appearance at the same lime, was received with three cheers by a large portion of the meeting. At the outset, Mr. O'sullivan appealed to the chair- man ...

The Courier. THURSDAY, AUGUST 20, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 August 1861

THE COURIER THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 1861.   WE observe that our Brisbane contem-   porary, with the view, we presume, of   increasing his circulation, made a bold   bid in his yesterday's issue for another State trial. That, however, is the Attorney-General's affair, not ours ; but we are personally concerned in noticing an article, which appeared in the Guar-     dian of Saturday last, signed "M.P." Putting aside the scandalous libel on the Legislative Council which it contains, we would ask where the writer picked up his notions of equity and justice ? Is our unfortunate publisher to be made a bait of because a contemptible renegade desires to trap an " old lion ? " Are the anxiety and the expense occasioned to a defendant by a prosecution nothing in his eyes? In his eagerness to secure a conviction against a loyal subject for sedi-   tion, he wishes to transmute the lion into a jackal, and mak...
