NOTES OF A TRIP FROM SOUTH BRISBANE TO BREAKFAST CREEK. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 31 August 1861

NOTES OF A TRIP, FROM SOUTH : BRISBANE TO BREAKFAST CREEK. By W. Jenkins, Esq. (Continued.) The church is a handsome little edifice, built of stone procured in the neighborhood. Had it not been for the difficulty which I have already stated I experienced in mount- ing and dismounting my horse, I should certainly have stopped to take its exact dimensions. It possesses a Bishop and two or three clergymen, who invariably dress in black. They bear generally a good character in the neighborhood, and I learn that, al- though fond of tea parties, they never drink, dance, flirt, or indulge in other uncanonical amusements. The pew-opener. I was also informed, is a teetotaler, but I was sorry to learn that no beadle has yet been appointed. Of all the institutions of the old country, there is none to which I am so partial as the beadle. His cocked hat, tippet and staff greatly conduce to devotional feelings, especially in the mind of the young. I should advise the appointment of a beadle at on...

PORT DENISON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) PORT DENISON, JULY 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 September 1861

PORT DENISON. (froth our own correspondent.) Port Denison, July 5. The arrival of the Ben Bolt has put us in possession of news from the civilized world, which we had began to think had forgotten us, but we find that we are still   remembered in your part of it, as we are informed that tho Eagle steamer is laid on for Port Denison to give the curious in natural history the chance of looking at us. We were exceedingly dull after the departure of the Jeannie Dove, nothing of importance having occurred to relieve the monotony of the place excppt the arrival of Mr. Emmer- son and his party with their drays and cattle, all in good condition. A party, con- sisting of Messrs. Stenhouse, Cunningham, Somers, Myles, and Allingham, have just returned from a tour of the Burdekin in search of runs, in which they have been suc- cessful. They give a favorable account of the country, but represent the natives as very numerous and daring. They came on the back of another party of explor...

IPSWICH. (l'BOli ODK OWN COIinESPONDENT.) ? Fkiday, August 30. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather the committee appointed to collect subscriptions for a Grammar School mot yesterday at the School of Arts, to commence operations. Dr. Challinor occupied the chair. Mr. Macalister was unanimously chosen Secretary, and instructed to infurm tho Co- lonial Secretary of tho fact that a committee had boon appointed, and of the steps which were being taken. Mr. Cribb was appointed Treasurer. It was resolved to prepare sub- scription lists, and furnish each member of committee with a copy ; also to prepare tm., address for publication explanatory of tho provisions of the Grammar Schools' Act. This looks like business, and with business men at work, we may reasonably expect some energetic steps. I hope that, if it should take ti little time, they will not stop much short of £3000. There was, as I anticipated, no meeting of the Municipal Council. There is, how- ever, a special meeting...

DALBY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) AUGUST 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 September 1861

DALBY. (FROM OUR OWN CORHESPONnENT.) August 27. I nAvis much pleasure in again recording for li your mlormation, tho increasing morality of g our distriot, ibero being no polico oases dur- h ing the.past week worthy of notice. Educa- tion is the best branch pf police,, socially considered, inasmuch as it destroys the chief seeds of crimo, want; nnd ignorance. It has been forcibly remarked that to! send an un- educated child intn'tho world is little better than lo turn'ont a mad dog dr ii wild beast ;into,the streets. It is unnecessary, however, at this day, to iusist. on tho advantages of | education. .Thu pleasure as well as the profit to" be reaped from knowledge is now 'generally'- recoguise:l. If the time ever existed when any class of society sought an advantage' by keeping the rest in ignorance, it is past, and all alike seek peace, security, arid prosperity from tho diffusion of know- ledge. Let there be no monopoly of educa- tion, the dissemination, of .instruction must 'bo'...

WARWICK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WARWICK, AUGUST 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 2 September 1861

WARWICK. (from our own correspondent.) Warwick, August 2S. Hain, rain, rain, everlasting rain, is the order of tho day here. The weather occa- sionally holds up for two or three days, and then we get perhaps a week's rain. The roads between this place and the Range and Canal Creek are very heavy. I think it would have been more graceful on my part to have commenced my com- munication by offering my congratulations on the success of tbe Courier in tho lato libel case. As far as I can learn,-everybody here is heartily glad of the result, and well they may be. I can fancy tho feelings of the defendant on that great day, and can picture to myself tho stoicism with which he bore so great a persecution! Thus ends, then, this storm in a teacup. It certainly strikes me the " lords" have made themselves ex- tremely ridiculous. We are getting along swimmingly with municipal matters. Thc officers aro all chosen, and wo are only now waiting until such time as the bye-laws are legally sanc- tion...

For every few days fine-weather wc got rain in torrents by tho week. Tho mail arrange- ments, if there are any, are altogether thrown out; in fact communication of all kind is almost stopped, and business is dreadfully flat in consequence nf tho continuous bad weather. To-day, rain has been pouring down as if tho clerk of tho weather had been laying wagers as to the amount of water that can bo made to fall in a giveu time. . Since my last, our School of Arts has been completed, so far as tho building is concerned, and for Maryborough it is a very creditable erection.

In looking over the late files of the Courier, I, in common with others hero/was surprised to find no allusion whatever to tho " emi- grant ship" that it had previously been said was about to sail direct for this " port," and wo wera led to think that other arrange- ments bad boon mado. In a conversation, however, which I had subsequently with a gentleman of this place, my fears were happily dispolled. This gentleman .tolls me that by the last mail he received a private communication from a London merchant in which he is informed that tho G. Kidd was to leave on the 30th June for Port Curtis, with two' hundred emigrants. I imagine tlrat tho.vessel shortly after its arrival will have to proceed to Rockhampton?that is, after a sufficient number has been hired hore, as we do not possess in this-town-the means of accommodating any large number of persons nt a time.' .:' Our principal -/'mines seem at present to fluctuate a good deal.
