This parcel is made up by contributions from the banks alone, aud may be supplemented by consignments of which ,. vet we have no information.

The North Australian. TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 26 April 1864
©he S'ortji Australian. TUESDAY, APJttL 26. 1SG1. The Speecli to be read by HU Excelleucy, to-day, at the opening of Parliament will probably resemble all preceding regal and vice-regal Parlia mentary prefaces. Instead of observing tlie rule to put much in a small com pass, it will aim at the other extreme of expressing little in many words. Speeches from tlie throne, like nomina tions for tlie Legislature, are fast losing the sham importance tbat mis once attached to them. The revelations of the Speech bo more indicate the policy of Ministers, than do the chaff and clamour «t the hustings express the de teriniuation of the constituency. Both proceedings, as means to an end hare been so abused, that there is no longer any pnblic faith in their expressions. Courtesy tolerates their display, in the same spirit 'that it listens to a long .rence having anyutility or the slightest. connection with what is k» follow It would not be difficult to fore shadow the outlines of the Speech on th...

It is very satisfactory, tiiat within ten days nearly the whole of the immigrants have found ready engage ments at good wages, a fact we hope our respected member will take to bring before the Hon. the Colonial Secretary, as the best reply to his assertion that the district of the Wide Bay tind Burnett could absorb but few immigrant:!.

IPSWICH (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Monday, April 25. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 26 April 1864
? IPSWICH (FS03I ODE OWS COtBESPOXDENT.) Monday, April 25. aiscE my last letter I have little or no news of local iuterustto report; the neirs market here u unusually dull, and what little inci deuts do occur, are so devoid of general in terest, that would be a waste of time of little [mint io tuc reader. With reference to Friday's election. The result of the iate contest for North Brisbane has taken some of the great guns here by surprise from the many whisperings that have leaked out it was not anticipated in official quarters. Mr. Brookes' return must he to the Ministerialists such a shock as may ! eventually affect their equilibrium. Such a result would be anything but pleasant, especially after the failure of the many stratagems, and electioneering dodges, to return a candidate whose characteristics and parliamentary ideas, arc of the same order as their own. Even the hosts of liitie guns from thi Government Departments, : with their small shot, and the parting re commendation ...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE PRICE OF BREAD. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 26 April 1864
COBBESFONDBNCE. THE PRICE OF BREAD. Sib, — The Ipswich Times has ever been re markable for its readiness in riving inser tion to slanderous and ahnsive letters. One of this description appeared in last Toes day's issue, complaining of the price of bread being higher io Ipswich than iu Bris oane, wwie nour is two shillings a ton lower in the former place. The truthfulness of the writer can be estimated from tills, and his object from the low scurrilous attack be makes upon a respectable baker of the town. I should like to know how a baker more than any other tradesman should be respon sible for his prices. Is he not subject to the samelosscs? Should he happen to buy a stock or flour, and a fall of perhaps five or ten pounds a ton take place, would patriots such as the writer of the letter iu question come forward to save him? Not very likely I should think. If' the poor working men (a class that only rxist when business is iu the ascendant) think proper they can easily purchase some ...
