THE AMERICAN CRISIS. (Concluded from yesterday's paper.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 29 August 1861

X THE AMERICAN CEISIS. Î Bï Jorra DUNMOUR LANG, D.D. ( Concluded from yesterday's paper.) To return to the striking coinridonccs in the three cases of secession. Rehoboam, it seemB, had a largo army of 180,000 men, of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, whom he assembled to fight against the house ol Israel, io bring the kingdom neain to Reho- boam, tiic son of Solomon. But the word nf God came unto Shemaiah, the man of God, saying, Speak unto the son of Solomon, King of Judah, and unto all the house of Judah arid Benjamin, and to the remnant of the peojlle, saying, Thus saith the Lord ; Yo shall not go up nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel : lelurn every man to «is house ; for this thing is from me. They heiirkpned, therefoio, to the word of the Lord, and returned to depart, accordinsr to the word of the Lord." How very dif- ferently Rehoboam the Second acted on a similar occasion we all know and feel to this day ; for tho vain attempt of that in- capable to subdu...

TnE writer had long promised himself a visit to Breakfast Creek aud the country towards the exterior of the colony, regions but little known, when Pate, irf the parson of my neighbour Tomlcins, who had an- nounced his intention of paying a visit to this celebrated Creek, enabled me to cany into practice what I had so lons; wished for.

BLONDIN; THE ROPE DANCER. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

BLONDIN; THE ROPE DANCER. BLONDIN, of Niagara celebrity, arrived at Sputhampton by the Bremen steamer from NewYoik yesterday, in fulfilment of his engagement at the Crystal Palace. In biographical sketch, printed in Buffalo, U.S., he is thus spoken of :-"Blondin is unques ) tionably aud emphatically the ' King of the tight-rope,' ' Lord of the Hempen realm,' and 'Emperor of all Manila.' Though hohas had scores of imitators, ho has never had a rival." In the winter of 1S58 Blondín con- ceived the idea of 'making a bold stroke for foi tune on his own account: He visited Niagara Falls toteo what could be done there in the tight-rope way, know- ing that if ho did something really wonder- ful, the immense crowd of visitors who throng the place in summer could not fail to rewaid him handsomely, lío conceived tho daring plan of stretching a >ope across tho chasm through which the rapids of Niagara rush, and then making a passage across this fiail bridge himself. The thing was impossible...

THE VALUE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

THE VALUE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS. ,Tni5 utilitarian philosopher in every ap;o keeps icmimliiig huoiety of its mistakes in straining after the possiblo and uncertain, to the neglect and detriment, ol' the probable and hnro. Thoubands of cases might bo cited where the teachings of the utilitaiian have pointed to tilings simple nod neglected, that in iheuiMilvos edlituiiied the lino gunns of pnWoss anti bneiitl benefit. A wiflo field of speculation is opened up for enquiry by the principle in our nature which craves after the possible and uncer- tain, whilo it overlooks the near and pro- bable. Such a speculation is, however, outside the province of a journalist For us it mubt suffice to show that, in veiymany instances, the principle v.o have pointed out is injurious to the mme immediate and necchsaiy progress of the communities m which it han prevailed.

THE TIMBER TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

\' THE TIMBER TRADE. FoE'somelime past there has been a great dearth of timber ; the saw mills have been unable to meet the demands of their cus- tomers, and in several instances that have como under our notice, buildings have been delayed for three or four months because the proper description and scantling of timber could not be procured from the mills. For a time, also, it was hoped that not only would our forests supply timber fur our own requirements, but that we should be able to freight vessels returning to the other co- lonies where a demand had arisen for our softer woods. This trade is, however, virtually shut up ; and at the present time wo have under our eyes in Brisbane, a sight that will hardly gain for us the name of an enterprising people. Tho " Scotia" from Launceston, which brought a general cargo to our port, is reloading the cedar brought here by the Francis George from tho river Tweed, leaving the inference that cedar can bo obtained at the Tweed, and freight pa...

THE LATE COUNT CAVOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

THE LATE COUNT CAVOUR. THE obsequios of Count Cavour have been performod with a ceremonial grandeur almost Royal. All the bodies of the Stato, the municipal authorities, nnd various doputa tations, joined the procession. All the houses wore draped in black, aud cannon were fired at intervals during the ceremony of inter- ment. The remains of tho great statesman have been deposited, but it is believed only provisionally, at Villa Santcna. The muni- cipality of Turin aro about to erect a monu- ment to Cavour, and the bankers of Genoa are taking steps to organise a subscription for a sirniiar purpose. In the Neapolitan and Sicilian provinces almost as much emo- tion was displayed at the news of Cavour's death as in Northern Italy. From the Italie of Turin we leam that on the day preceding Count Cavour's death his Majesty the Emperor of the French sent fivo successive telegrams to Turin to inquire about tho state of the illustrious patient. On the same day tho King of Sardinia passed se...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

Ii«c;ttJ JJ.mSe!íigr«í5cc. THE WEATHER.-The rain, which set in on Tuesday last, has continued falling up to the present time, almost without intermission, and there is, at the timo of writing, small prospects of a return of fine weather. Yes- terday was especially unpleasant, for, al- though the wind once or twice veered round for a short time to tho westward, it blow too feebly to cause even a break in the clouds ; ami we had the benefit of an easterly and south-easterly wind the whole day, ac- companied by such a drenching fall of rain as to cause a perfect flood in the lower parts of the^town. So high had tho water risen in Frog's Hollow, that several of the residents in that locality had last night to shift their quirters, and unless a change speedily takes place, those remaining sfand a pretty fair chance of being " bailed np" in their houses for several days. The stoppage to business has boen well nigh universal ; indeed, tho most meagre of indoor attractions ought to have bee...

"THS DOGS OF WAR LET LOOSE." [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

" THIS DOGS OF WAR LET LOOSE." Tuts journals in the Northorn States of Arnotica are filled with warlike nppeals, and those who do not read the papéis can form no idea of the frightful state of things now existing there. We propose to give a fow illustrations. Tho Rev. Henry Ward Beecher (says the Neio Fo» h Ti thane) has just returned to his house in Brooklyn, after a fortnight's ab- sence. De presided at the prayer-meeting in Plymouth Church. He bad been out to Indianapolis, and, wo understand, returned by the way of Virginia. In the course of some remarks, Mr. Beecher said that he had lived to see an age of heroes. If such things as now happened every day had been recorded in the days o f Epaminondas, every schoolboy would glow with enthusiasm in reading thom. While he was in Indiana, an old man, nioety-two years of age, who had fought in 1812, and in Indian wars, came to Camp Morton, and insi.stcd upon going with the volunteers, "to show the young men how to fight." Another, sixt...

IA ' STRANGE ' EVENTFUL HISTORY. (From tho Noltinglitm Athenoum, Monthly Magazine) WnEN my professional duties called me to Birmingham, I was sitting at my hotel after dinner, moodily sipping my wine, in a lonely spirit, (for there is nothing so lonesome as being in a largo populous town where you know nobody, nnd nobody cares for you,) when the landlord entered the private room in which I was sitting, and, after apologising for his intrusion, said, " There is a young fellow down stairs in the bar wishes to seo you, ho does not know your name, but asked if any legal gentleman were staying in my bouse during the assize, and begged of mo to introduce him, if such was the case. The fact,is, sir," continued mine host, " he is a clever man, who has seen better days, and now obtains a little money by singing and reciting in various public-house bars ; bo doubtless wishes to amuse you and benefit himself pecuniarily as well, and if you are not otherwise engaged you will find him ex- cellen...

THE STAR OF INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

THE STAR OF INDIA. THE Queen of India has givon to hor newly adopted people an Order of Chivalry. The ordur of " the Star of India" has boen insti- tuted to commemorated tho resolution of tho Sovereign of tho British empire to tako upon herself the government of India. Last night's Gazette announces the creation of the knightly brotherhood, and constitutes it with its Sovereign grand master and twenty-five knights. It is a bold essay. It is ah attempt to fix the northern notions of loyalty and chivalric honor in Asiatic minds. It is an appeal to sentiments which are thought not to bo of indigenous growth in the far East. Theso orders of chivalry arose in times whon tbero was pride in submission, whon a mili- tary bondago was a badge of honor, and when fidelity was the highest and most cherished attribute of gentío blood. Perhaps it is not quite in this point of viow that " the Star of India " will bo regarded by the powerful Princes who aro about to re- ceive tho now distinction. It...

She sold for 1000 are. Emma was a light, pert-looking, agile quad- roon, whom the auctioneer recommended as ' an excellent nurse and a very likely and intelligent young woman, gentlemen ; come up and talk to her.' Emma went off quickly, at 1000 drs. Catherine, n pleasant-looking, plump little, mulatto girl-a more child replied modestly to tho auctioneer's query, that she could ' sow pretty well.' and wa« promptly bid off at 1050 drs.

JLetters to t!»c Editor. QUEENSLAND VOLUNTEERS. Sut,-I think it is grpatly to be regretted the abovo movement has not been moio succossftil in Queensland, and, considering the large amount of enthusiasm with which it was inaugurated, it must not be a little disappointing to those who have felt any interest in it. My object in addressing you on this sub- ject is simply to point out what I believe to be some of the evils that have led to such unlooked-for results, and as far as in mo lies, to indicate their remedy. I shall perhaps be the more impartially listened to when I inform you that I am in no way connected with the corps in Brisbane, and never have been, but feel a considerable amount of in- terest in their success nevertheless. The hearty-aüd spirited manner in which his Excellency initiated the movement in calling the first tneetiug, in appointing so excellent a drill-master as Sergeant Green, and also in appointing persons to give in- formation as he did, stands in striking ...
