DRAYTON AND TOOWOOMBA. \ Sib,?A recent visitov to the Darling Downs has, throng'!^, tho press, made soinu ohsorva lions respecting tho rival townships of Too- woomba and Drayton. If you will give mo space in your valuable journal, tho public may have tho bonofit, (if any) of a fuw more observations on the same theme. Tho " Toowoombamtos," as you must bo awaro, aro not a little vain of tho growing importance of their township, which, in point of population, they aro in tho habit somewhat pompously of announcing as infe- rior only tOvtho metropolis and to Ipswich. They love to set forth how many branch banks and churches, with their parsons of diver sects, they have located, and make fre- quent mention of their Mayor and Aldermen, and get into raptures on discussing. tho merits of their volunteers, for which gallant and glorious body should a "paid" trumpeter bo required, I will be happy to put in'a " tender," being too poor, and not .sufficiently, patriotic, to ofter my services grat...

THE SETTLEMENT AT PORT DENISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 September 1861

,'J' THE SETTLEMENT AT PORT 110 DENISON. Sib,?Allow me, through tho medium of your journal, to call the attention of tho go- vernment to what I think is a great over- sight, in not appointing a medical man in opening tho now settlement of Port Denison. There are, at the present time, moro than one hundred persons hero, including women and children, and should any very serious illness happen, I should like to know what, they would do. Surely it is the duty of tho go- vernment, in opening a now settlement so re remote from all available aid as wc arc, to appoint a medical man until such time as the place is able to support one. Fortunately, nothing very serious has happened to anyone at present; hilt who knowshow soon it may ? It is true tho chief commissioner is in posses- sion of a medical chest, and is also very obliging and attentive to any call mado upon him*, but iu tho event of anything serious happening, something, more than a medical chest, and the kind attention of thc chief...

ADELAIDE MARKETS. Our dates trom Adelaide aro np to tho 17th instant. Tho Re.gittcr gives tho following report of tho markets:? Tho flour market during tho past wooli has shown no improvement to speak.of. For a day or two thuro wore certainly soino slight indications of finner fueling; but this has diod away, and it is now as dull and as little enquired af tor as it was before.

COIN AND BANK NOTES. .[contributed.! It a is ' matter pf very ¦ great moment that, people in tho daily use.of tho articles named ut the hoad of this paper should seriously and intelligently reflect, upon what they really are,?what it is that constitutes the value attached to them.

Letters to the Editor. DIFFLO'S CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 September 1861

Letters to the Editor. DIFFLO'S CASE. Sir, - The case of Charles Difflo, involving as it does, according to your leading article on the subject, a principle affecting the liberty of the person, would be a valuable thesis to ? were the true facts of the case such as to warrant a deserved sympathy for an unfortu- nate victim of chancery. This man, how ever, although a British subject under the permanent care of Mr. Sneyd, and a pen-   sioner on thc public purse, is a very vulgar martyr. The case, stripped of its outer tex- ture, and laid bare in its naked simplicity,   merely brings to view another instance of the greed of gold, creating in a human being a desire of possession so strong as to subdue the sweets of liberty itself. Many instances have been known to me in my experience of men who have lived for years, and ultimately died prisoners of the Queen's Bench, from sheer obstinacy, refusing to execute deeds, &c., under decrees from the Court of C...

o! COLONIaL EXTRACTS. VIC 1'OkIA. We have news from Melbourno from the 14th to 22nd of August. From tho.journals to hand we make the following extracts ;? We [Agc) learn with regret that another attempt to overturn a train on tho Murray River Railway was made at 'an early hour yesterday morning (15th), near Woodend, though fortunately did not succeed. In this instance the points near tho Quarries, (about a milo from Woodend) wero tampered with during tho night, thc screw of the connecting rod having been forced olf with a chisel and hammer. Thu effect of this was, that whon the pointsman shifted tho points, onoffl would remain open while tho other closed, and that any engine crossing them towards Melbourno must be thrown oil" before a couple of yards nf the line were travelled. Tho first train to pass towards Melbourno ofter this had been done was tho four o'clock train from Wood- end, and it must have been evident tn tho perpetrators of tho villany that in thc dark- ness of thc mor...
