THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN. IPSWICH, MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1856. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 7 April 1856
THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN. IPSWICH, MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1856. Mr. Thomas Holt, one of tbe candidates for the representation of the Stanley Boroughs, having fully explained his political views, both verbally and in writing, according to the most orthodox fashion,'we do not see any objection to his being elected on account of any import- ant difference of opinion on the leading ques- tions of the day ; but as the other candidates have expressed similar views with equal, if not superior, ability, we are at a loss to conceive any reason why he should' expect to obtain the suffrages of this constituency in preference to the well-known residents of the district, who, undoubtedly,have greater claims upon &nbsp; the voters, and more direct interest in their prosperity. If we may judge from the all but unanimous feeling manifested against his elec- tion at the public meeting on Wednesday &nbsp; evening last, it is not probable he will obtain many votes in Ipswich. In fact we never wi...

It has, within the last few days, come to my know» lodge that the Phtebe Dunbar, with emigrants* from London, has been ordered to Sydney on her arrival here. This in no wise surprised me, for so long as the present absurd system of retaining the emigrants at Brisbane con tinned, what else could be anticipated 'i \ It was oil very well when labour was exceedingly scarce, to land cargoes of people at out--of-the-wn.r ? places like Brisbane, but now that there is a fair j average supply, people will not submit to th...
NORTH AUSTRALIAN EXPEDITION. Victoria River, North Australia, 24th September, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 8 April 1856
NORTH AUSTRALIAN EXPEDITION. . (From the Government Gazette, March 28.) Victoria River, North Australia, 24th September, 1865. Sib, — I have the honour to transmit, by the Monarch, via Singapore, an abstract of the proceed ings of the North Australian Expedition to the pre sent date. On the 12th August the Expedition left Moreton Island, and on the 13th entered the inner passage to Torres Straits. After a somewhat tedious passage we reached Albany Island on the 26th, sighted Port Essington on the 1st September, and cleared Cla rence Strait at noon the following day ; but, owing to the great indraught of the deep indentations of the coast, the Monarch, so deviated from the direct course, that at 10 p.m. she grounded on the northern reef in the entrance of Port Patterson, and with some difficulty the Tom Tough was extricated from the reefs, as she was following the barque. Unfortunately this occurred at the time of high spring tide, and it was not till the 10th that endea vours to get...

MR. WENTWORTH AND THE ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 8 April 1856
MR. WENTWORTH AND THE ELECTIONS. An opinion expressed by Mr. Wentworth respects ing the composition of the Legislative Assembly has been several times quoted during the elections now taking place. Au extract from a letter of still more recent date, written by Mr. Wentworth to a gentle man who was a member of the late Council, has been handed to us for publication. All parties must feel interested in learning what are the views of the author of the Constitution Bill, ate political junc ture like the present, when this measure is about to be tested by the actual application of its principles in tne government of the country. But this extract contains something more. We have been strongly opposed to Mr. Wentworth, but we know many who ronlially agreed in the principles of that opposition, trill yet, as native Australians, feel their sympathies warm to their alttentcountryman's concluding words. Mr. Wentworth writes :— ' I hope you, and all -|uc natives who arc eligible, will take your ...

The sufferer becoming rather drowsy, a tcaspoouful of brandy and some sal volatile was then administered, and he was desired to move about. In the course of 24 hours the usual symptoms of sleepiness and rigidity of the limbs had disappeared. About ten days afterwards the boy was again slightly affected with rigidity of the sinews, but on a renewal of the former application he ultimately recovered...
PRODUCE CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 8 April 1856
PRODUCE CIRCULAR. A considerable amount of wool advertised for sole yesterday brought together a numerous attendance, and the lots being put up for unreserved sale the competition was brisk, and for fair to good qualities an advance took place upon last week's prices. The purchases that are now being made, both nrivateJv and at auction, are principally for the French mar ket — especially of scoured and handwasbed wools — . 1 and quotations for these qualities are above coin- - parison to those of fleece wool. Inferior low find I seedy wools are dull of sale, the English market quoting them at low figures' aud not in demand, and they ore quite unsuitable for a foreign market, and hence so great a difference in price. The low rates of freight and the exchange ou England have of late been in favour of the grower ; but it is ex tremely difficult, in the absence of English advices, to say whether present prices will be maintained. Tallow. — The supply of this article has been larger than...
POLLING DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian, Ipswich and General Advertiser — 8 April 1856
POLLING DAY. Yesterday, according to official appointment, the Poll demanded by the candidates on the -?day of nomination took place at the Court House. John Panton, Esq., the Deputy Returning Officer, presided, and commenced taking the voting papere at 9 o'clock pre cisely. Some delay occurred in registering the votes, in consequence of the Deputy Returning Officer Having consiaerea it nis duty to check the voting papers by the Electoral Roll, which in numerous instances turned out to be incorrect, as well as the printed lists, from which most of them wore made up. Very few votes, however, were altogether rejected, as Mr. Panton gave every person, whose voting paper was informal, an opportunity to amend it. Several voters, however, whose papers had been refused, left the polling place, and did not vote at all. It ?certainly appeared to us that the Returning Office* was more strict on this, occasion than usual. The general opinion, however, is that on the whole the election was cond...
