THE COMING IMMIGRANTS [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 8 November 1861
THE COMING IMMIGRANTS THE time is fast approaching when we may look for a large influx of population. The labours of our Immigration Agent have been crowned with such success that the inhabitants of Great Britain, or a large portion of them, seem to have become aware of the advantages offered by this country; and ere long we shall have all classes and conditions of men arriving on our shores, anxious to improve their circum stances. Many of t?hem will come amongst us ready and willing to take any employment which may be offered. Those who have come with a desire to improve their circumstances, will not be nice about the sort of work which may be offered them; they will come prepared to face all the vicissitudes of a colonial life, and anxious only to commence at once to earn money. Many of them who bate been used to the petty t3 ranny of their former masters, will consider tihe change which will greet them here as something like relief from slavery, and an entrance upon freedom; whi...
(From the D. D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 8 November 1861
(From the D. D. Gazette.) ACCIDENT.-W. M. Dorsey, M.D., had a narrow escape last Friday. He was thrown from his horse when on his way home, and received a deep cut under the chin, besides severe contusions about the head. As the horse got away, and Dr. Dorsey was by himself, he had to walk home a distance of fifteen miles, much weakened from loss of blood. A telegraphic message was sent to Dr. Sachse, at Toowoomba, who arrived at Grantham within one hour and a half, and assisted in closing the wound. Since then Dr. Dorsey is rapidly recovering. We have great satisfaction in reporting this happy result. FURTHER PARTICULARS IN REFERENCE TO THE MASSACRE OF MR. WILLS AND PARTY.-Our Dawson correspondent writing on the 21st ultimo of the melan- choly fate of Mr. Wills and his men, says :-"I have been speaking to a gentleman that assisted in burying Mr. Wills, two women, three children, and fourteen men ; there are two shepherds still missing.

To the Editor ?f the Pueenrland Times. 8t,--No doubt a most (oul deed has been perpe trated at Nogos, and all must mourn the loss of such men as H. 8. Wills, Eag, in such a miserable way. The ruthless savages who committed these murders de serve the severest punishment, and must, if possible, be made an example to evildoers. No one uvillobject to their cpndigs chastisement But the gloating over the oceasion affoBrded by this dreadful massacre for hunting and shooting down the blacks, exhibited by the Guardian of November 6th, mustalse give pain to all right-minded people. The tone of triumph displayed by the Guardsan over those rho have endeavoured to procure jnustice for the aborigines, is anything but reputablehaddignifioed. The Savagee of theie spsrsely inhabited territories will commit atrocities.; no one, that I am esrre, has ever denied that they would. The only question between the Guardian and others is, whether their ontrages shall be met by lawlessness or law-eavageism ty ...
