ADELAIDE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1861

ADELAIDE MARKETS. I ? °J We haye nows from Adolnido, via Mel- bourne, to thc 11th instant. Thc Register re- ports ns follows :?" Our remarks of last week, as to general business in Adelaide, nrc very applicable to tho transactions nf tin: past week. '1'harc lins boen very Httlo doing; in deod, wu have scarcely seen a tiinu when matters woro moro dull. This is, no doubt, in some degree attributable :to thc late ex- citement in mining matters, by which a largo amount of money lins boen withdrawn from its ordinary course and use, and bccoinu, for a short tune at any rate, tied up. The groat excitement, ho wo vcr, "is over; and, although now and again a fresh piece of nows from tho mines creates somo stir in individual minds, yet, ns a whole, thoro is not very much doing in sharos. Flour has boon excessively quiet during tho wook, and prices aro, consequently, not quito so firm as thoy have boon j £16 to £16 los. hoing tho prusent rates against £1G os, nnd £17, ns maintained thu previou...

Win Courter, TUESDAY. MAT 28, I MU Inconvenient investigations are rarely palatable to the parties more immediately concerned, and very "pestilent fellows" are those men accounted who venture to protest against tho "smoothing over" process by which such investigations are too often-smothered.' We have before U3 a pamphlet which has "been "published for general information," nnd which is affirmed to bo a report of the " proceed- ings of tho commission appointed to in- vestigate the charges against Mr. Hal- loran," conduoledat Maryborough in November, 18C0, by Messrs.

SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1861

'"' SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. Tana.?By a loller from tho Rev. John G. Paton, dated 1,3th April, to a friend in Sydney, we learn that for nearly five months previously measles had prevailed in tho island, awl that hundreds, if not thousands, of the natives had died from this loathsome disoaso. In some districts, says the writer,! the mortality was so great that tho dead, were cither drawn out from the villages and left to decompose on the groltod, or the doors of the houses were closed and thc bodies allowed to decay where thc, sufferers had breathed their last. As thc people ? around his station got medicine, which did them much good, the mortality among them was much less than that inland, yet twenty-two chiefs in and around the harbour died, and many of their people. Mr. Paton's amiturmese, who acted as teachers in newly opened inland stations, suffered severely, and ten persons died?four being likely to recover, though left very weakly. Except three chiefs, nearly, all.our pcoplo who ca...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1861

VICTORIA. We take the following extracts from:thc Argus :¦? ,.;:,''! _? That journal pf thc 16lh says :- Tho pro- duce market still suffers from tho duluess prevalent inall branches of trnde, nor is "any improvement probable. Although tho prices of flour arc nominally kept to the old rates, buyers are hanging back, in expectation of a fall, and the amount of business transacted is consequently very limited. This feeling is partly caused by the receipt of informa- tion that shiptnents from California have been resumed, and partly from its becoming apparent that wo have abundance of wheat in.these colonies for'the consumption of'the year, even with a liberal allowancefbr what has been damaged by the weather.. With the..price-ol' flour thus uncertain, wheat is not, of courso in such demand. ' On the same d.ay:a case was/heard at thc Collingwood Police Court, which, says the Argus, discloses an amount of heartless villany not inferior to that which, occurring in ii higher circle of soci...

Letter to the Editor. THE NATIVE POLICE AND THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 28 May 1861

Letter to the Editor THE NATIVE POLICE AND THE ABORIGINES. Sir, - As the subject of the Native Police Force is coming under discussion in the Assembly, a few remarks from one who has been intimate with the habits of the blacks for many years, and has known and at times taken part in the various modes adopted for their repression, - from the memorable ex- ploits of Major Nunn to the present day, - may not be considered out of place. To view in a fair spirit the working of the present police force, it is first necessary to have some knowledge of the habits, customs, and motives which actuate the blacks. With the habits and customs, so far as there is any little regularity in them, I am acquainted ; but the motives which actuate a savage must always be more or less matter of con- jecture. We predict the advent of a comet; we caution the dwellers in a far-off coast of a coming storm; but the many failures in prison discipline have shown us that where our countrymen, either from bad educ...
