Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 30 April 1861
Local attb I?istrict Nels . Plas on !-Mr. Hill, who has lately opened an oyster saloon in Nicholas-street, has made arrangements to receive a regular supply of fish through the Brisbane Fish Company. We have no doubt that his enterprise will receive all Ithe success that it deaerv?es, for thlere are very few housekeepers in tihe town who will not be frequent customers. On Monday night, a chest of drawers, in the quarters of Lieutenant Seymour, at the Military Barracks, was broken into, and a drawer containing about £20, a gold ring, a gold stud, and several private documents forcibly removed theens. On the evening in question, Lieutenant Seymour went out sabout eight o'clock, leaving hIis servant in charge, who, it would appear, also departed shortly afterwards, leaving a door leading into Eiizabseth street open. ~Upon Lieutenant Seymour's retusn about ten o'clock, he found the drawer and contents, as abhve stated, ahstrascted.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
ENGLISH EXT'RACBTS. The last Prince of Wales (afterwards George IV) who came to the throne had debts amounting to nearly a million, which the nation was compelled to pay; the present Prince, on coming of age, will fnd a snug nest-egg of half a million of money in vested in his name. WVe have been informed (says the Pernendtae Floridiae) of the outlines of a terrible tragedy which occurred in Sumter count~y, near Adamsville, on thle 13dh instant. A man by the name of Andrews, who was, until recently, a Methodist preacher, killed on that day two persons, Messrs. IWLellan and G. f. Condry, and wounded two others, Lang and ClyattL He was immediately ar rested and hung on the following day. Lord A.

FINE ENGLISH. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
PINE ENGLISH. TmE following extrscts are from au article entitled "Samples of Fine English," published in the last number of the CornMll Afgazine : I do not know whether the worst specimens of --e English are to be found in sermons or news. papers. I rarely read or heard sermons whose las. guage is pure, and, as it ought to be, easy to be understood by the unlearned. Yet, with such Books before them as the Bible and Prayer-hook, it seems strange that o:r clergy should be am ngst the worst writers of English, For in our Bible and Prayer-book we have, if we make allowauce for the antique diction, a perfect model of what.our mother tongue ought to be. It was observed by Coleridge that it seemed to be by a kind of providence that i the translation of the Bible, sand the works of-the greatest English writers-Shakspeare, Bacon, and Hoaker--bshould occur about the same time, so as by a doublle power to fix the language just when it was in its highest perfection. The pages of a mangazine ar...
THE RE-CONSTITUTION OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
THE RE-OOSkTITTTION OF THE LEGISLA TIVE ASSEMBLY OF QUEENSLAND. (From ?e S~ydney Morning Herald,·une 4.) TIaE surrounding -colonies are evidently diligent pectateors of our achievements. They see what we have done for onurserlves;-that with great preliminary advantages-with enormons means of advancement with a power of borrowing all but unlimited--with a territory so vast as to contain reserves for distant ages ndl generations, with all the prestige of priority and long eaperience of Government, we have brought oursalves into difealties and straits which our rulers -anno deal with, and which, therefore, as the next best thing, they impudently deny. We believe, in this celony even, that the sober and intelligent classes would possess infuence which would give them a majority min the Government,r where there not geographical ditficulties whirh prevent their combination, and which hare given a disastrous power to the rdienals of this metropolis. These last can never build, but they am ...

SYDNEY. Sydney, June 3rd, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
SYDNEY. [vano o0n c11R1o SPODENT.r Sydney, Juane 3rd, 1861. Tas great event of the week, the East Sydney election, is ever, and the Government have received a defeat in the person of their nominee, 3Mr. Neole, the carcase Ihtc?ler, recently retulned from a trip to England. The successful candidate is Mir. W. Frster, formerly member for Queanbeyan, and the hlwadof the celebrated administration which sur vived for so short a period. This election is the in 'lx of a very prevalent idea, that the Cowper Robertsonian compact is daily growing less popular -that the tables are turning-and that the bubble ofJivee selection is likely soon to burst; and people who hear so often of the agrarian predilections of tIre hon. John Robertson, who is perpetually thi-estening to retire to his farm, only respond to his mild intimidations-" what theou doest, do quickly." r'he Ministry have, however, in this contest been taught a lesson they are not likely soon to forget; the whole force of the Governmen...

THE ENSUING SESSION OF THE PARLIAMENT OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Communicated to the Empire.) [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
THE ENSU1NG SESSION OF TE? PAr~LIA MENT OF NEW SOUTI WALES. (Comemuniented to the Empire.) Some imperfect and partly erroneous statements having been made public in reference to the inten tions of the Government in connection with the forthcoming sessiop of Parliament, it is very desira ble that the coantry should be set right as to the real state ofthe case. The following, Lhcrefore, will be found substantially correct, being derived from a source of unquestionable authenticity. It is quite true that the Parliament will not be called together before Augqst next. It is also true that Bills fur the Alienation and Occupation of Ciown Lande, for the reconstruction of the Legisla tive council, and for the amendment of the Publicans' Act willbe introduced, besides the Esti mates andtheAppropriation Act; anl some minor Bills affecting the importation and distillation of perfumed spirits--of which very little account need be made. There is no present intention to propose an amended or a co...
AUSTRALIAN KEROSENE. To the Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 June 1861
AUSTRALIAN KEROSENE. To the Editor qf be Sydegy Morning Herold. Sr,-I observe in your columns an announcement o?a discove~iyg, in Tasmania, of e(xteunsive felda of rwhite ebale, suitable for the manufacture of kerosene oil About eight years ago, I examined nary earerully, and aalsed, that shale which abounds in the Maraoy dis trict in that same colony, forming beds varying from two to thirty feet in thickness, and rendering large tracts of country lmost barren. As I think it not unlikely that a similar formation may he found in the neighbour-. hood of some of the coal-fields of this colony, I will briefy describe it-although, not having at hand aoapy of the report which I published at the time of my investigations in Hobart Town, I regret that I can only write from recollection. Itn colour, Mersjy shale is a dark drab, or sometimes approsching to a dull reddish brown. When held in the flame of a candle, it takes fire, and continues to burn, giving out a bright white flame. The form ...
