THE IMMIGRATION DEBATE. WiiATLVER may bo the shoitcomings of our government or legislature, they at least are worthy of piaiso for the enlightened views they have always expressed upon the subject of Immigration. Our policy on these matter contrasts favourably with that of some of the other colonial legislatures who have been stopping the supplios tor the promotion of Immigration. Mr. UEIIBKUT but expressed the feelings of tho House when he said that the best system of Immigration for this colony to adopt, was a combination of all systemsi Yot to any one who had listened to or read tho debates upon the Land Bill last session, the debate the other evening upon Immigration must have presented some remarkable features.

DISTRIUUTION OF BLANKETS TO THE BLACKS. The usual ceiemony of distributing blan-   kets to tho aboriginal natives constitut- ing the several tribes in and around Bris- bane, was performed, as of yore, by Mr. Brpwri, sheriff of, tho colony. The attend ance of aborigines on tho occasion, was about equal to that of last year-number- ing neaily 4OO, inclusive of infants; and the site selected for the distribution of the blankets was, as usual, (the elevated ground facing the old gaol, or what is now more fashionably-and appropriatly termed the "new Police Court." 'There was a very large attendance of spectators on the occa- sion, including ladies as well as gentlemen, all of whom seemed to take a deep interest in the proceedings. Among others we ob- served the Right Rev. Dr. Tufnell, who went, amongst the aborigines as they stood in a kind of semi circle round the front of the Police Court, and appeared to take pleasure in canvassing their opinions and notions, with regard ...

CENTRAL POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 25 May 1861

CENTRAL POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, 23rd. May.—Before the Police Magistrate (Mr. Brown.) Elizabeth Meade was apprehended on a charge of drunkeness, but there being no legal proof to this effect, she was discharged. And the same result followed with reference to another charge, in which she was accused of assaulting William Watson, lodging-house keeper. In appeared that the defendant had been lodging in the house, and some dispute had arisen with regard to certain goods left on the premises, which resultad in the assault complained of. It was proved however, that the constable did not witness the assault, and hence the case failed in point of law. FRIDAY, May 24th.—Before the Police     Magistrate, (Mr. Brown.

In the Court of Exchequer on Satur- day one WrtS brought by Eliza Burridge, a housekeeper, against a publican named Pritchard, a widower, living at Brompton, Lolidori.

Attached to one letter wore these lines:? " Tho little trophy which I send . I hope yon will receive, And keep it for the sake of one Tlint never will deceive."
