The Courier. FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 1861. WE have been requested by several in- telligent and respectable Germans to draw public attention to the case of one of their countrymen named DIFFLO, at present confined in the Brisbane gaol, without much probability of being liberated at any definite date. The man was committed to gaol some eighteen months ago for an offence designated by legal phraseology as "contempt of court." DIFFLO may possibly be, for aught we   know to the contrary, a hardened rogue and villain. The law evidently assumes that he is not a very honest and guiltless member of society. At the same time it is possible to make a martyr sometimes of a scoundrel, and even on the assump- tion that DIFFLO is a dishonest man, the circumstances under, which he is brought under our notice, show that it is just possible that English law, with all its perfections, (and they are many and varied as those who love the law know to their cost) occasionally makes martyrs of men who wonld oth...

SUPREME COURT.-(YESTEUUAT.) rh IN INSOLVENCY. [BEFORE Mr. Justico Lutwyche, as Chief Commissioner.] In the eslato of Alexander and John Cameron a singlo meeting was held.

SURVEY OF THR AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

SURVEY OF THR AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. , SUBJOINED is the report of the üydrographer of the Admiralty on the above subject: ', -Admiralty, March 25th, 1861. With reference to the despatch of Sir W. Denison to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, of tho 19th September last, it is gratifying to find how piomptly the soveral Australian colonies have nccoded to the pro- posal of the Admiralty to bear half the cost of a nautical survey of their respective coasts, and it is highly honorable to the several legislatures that they should have so readily sanctioned the necessary vote of money for the purpose. 2. On tho part of the Admiralty no time .will be lost in fulfilling its share of the un- dertaking. In the colony of Victoria, Com- mander Cox and his party aro already at .work, having left England in September last, and if no political changes have occurred, or other obstacle intervened, they will by this time have made some sensible progress in what was proposed as their first work, n...

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 30 August 1861

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. THE Glasgow correspondent of the Jlathgate Times writes :-A romance of real life, as it is called, occurred latidy in this city, and your correspondent, wrth a desire to please his fair readers-whoije curiosity in these matters is well-known-¡-will now proceed to give a condensed account of the whole affair, obtained through a private source, and one upon which he can depend. A young gen- tleman of good positionjin Glasgow,and who some time since occupied an official situa- tion iu the town of Bristol, received one morning, much to his surprise, an annony mous letter written in a bold female hand. This letter contained the modest request that if the gentleman would pioceed to Bristol and call at a certain place there, ho would hear of something to his advantage. The phrase " to hear of something to his advan- tage " was ceitainly no! definite enough to induce our young gentleman to undertake such a long jon me}', and so no notice was taken of the letter.

We aro not surprised that the Act which haslately been passed through tho Im- perial Legislature,'for the legalisation of the Acts-of thc illegally constituted par- liament, of .Queensland, has not yet made its appearance in this colony. Ifc . is true-; that it was read a third time in tho TTous2 of Commons on the 20th. of June, and ;that.the outward mail did/not leave London until tho 26th of that month', but the despatch of the measure to this colony was a matter involving thc exer- cise ofi that circumlocutionitry genius which is the presiding deity at tho Colo- nial Office. During tho late session of our parliaracnt,:two attempts were made to"' elicit information from the govern- ment, relative to this Imperial Act. Mr. Macalister gave notice of a -question on the subject, which, if it Kad ever been asked, would probably "have drawn .somethingof a/decisive response from the Colonial Secretary, but.j when tho time carne for it, Mr. Macalister announced h...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THURSDAY, AUGUST 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 31 August 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN OORRESPONDENT.) . THURSDAY, August 29. THERE were, of course, a great many minor incidents at the Grammar School meeting on Tuesday which I could not refer tb in my brief report yesterday. It is somewhat re- markable that up to this time we know no- thing about the £2000,?some thinking that, it was deposited in a bank, others that it "xists only in the form of a subscription list. The only practical result of the meeting as yet is, that Protestants no longer have a vague idea that they could carry a point by union ; but they have measured . thoir strength, nnd seen how easy it is to do this. The committee will no doubt work to some pnrpopo ; but it will take some time to raise £3000, which is about the amount necessary to make a good start. No doubt the squat- ter's, who are as much interested in a gram- mar school as any of the townspeople, will contribute liberally. The Ipswich Volunteer Rifle Corps mus tnrcd at the Company's store yesterday, for the purpose...
