DALBY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 20 October 1863
DALBY. The Correspondent, of the D. D. Gazette, writing from Dalby on the 13th instant, says : — On Saturday evening as the wife of a shepherd living at an out station on the Jimbour run, was proceeding in the direct- ion of the Woolshed Inn (Mr. Ross'), she was violently attacked by a blackfeUow, formerly in the Native Police, named Charlie, who after ill-treating the poor womao, and tearing her wearing apparel, succeeded in robbing her of three £1 notes and half a sovereign. Constable BI'Donald, of the Dalby police, having occasion to call at the Wuolshed Inn, was informed of the circumstances, and with praiseworthy vigilance, hastened to Dalby and informed the Chief Constable of the particulars of the barefaced outrage. Immediate steps were taken to capture the ruffian, who was supposed to be camped with the blacks in the vincinity of the town. On constable Devine making his appearance in the camp, instituting inquiries, die fellow was singled out, who lost no time in decamping, ...

MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 22 October 1863
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. At tht- meeting of this budv on Monday last, there were present the Mayor, Alder men Cliutib, Pettigrew. Shenton, and Given. Alderman Pettigbew gave notice of a motion for the rcpa:r of Union-street, which if not passed would lead to the closing for that thoroughfare. A letter was read from the Secretary of Lands refusing to grant to the Council the cruiind used as a Bonds' depot. The report of the Finance Committee, ordering the payment of accounts, was passed. Alderman Chubb moved that the Conncil grant £100 from the funds, to he devoted to thn purchase of a scholarship in the Grammar School, to be called tbe Corporation Scho- ! larsbip. The chief argument in favor of the motion was that the establishment of the school had increased the value of Crown Lands in its vicinity. Alderman Pettigbew briefly seconded the motion. At the suggestion of the BIatob, that the interest on £100 wonld not always be suffi cient to buy the scholarship, the sum was altered to £125....

IPSWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 22 October 1863
IPSWICH. ClKWODB OWS -»BBEaPOtIDEKT-) . - MUKICIPAXj Councils, lute every outer human institution, present at times strauge sites, and still stranger acts. They are, of course, fallible; but even so, they should exhibit some sort of reason. The Ipswich Municipal Council, on Monday evening, appeared to have lost all reason, and even shame. They eat acd deliberated, and passed a motion 'which concerns every ratepayer in Ipswich,' as if the money .they were voting away belonged personally to themselves, ? and not to the public I wonder how the ratepayers will swallow die dose of f 125 given to purchase scholar ships to the Grammar School. It was tbe dnty of these three gentlemen— 4he Mayor, Aldermen Chubb, and Pettigrew.-to consult the wishes and .feelings of considerably more than half of the ratepayers of Ipswich, before appropriating this money to a pur pose for which they have no authority, as they acknowledge in debate, and which I designate «s public robbery, np matter what mild ...
The North Australian. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 22 October 1863
Wyt Ufortjj Australian. TSURSDAT. OCTOBER 22. 1863. A FEW days since we thought it neces sary to call the attention of the public to the ' Act for the Incorporation, Re gulation, and AVlnding-up of Trading Companies and other Associations' which the last Session of Parliament has left for onr comfort. The mon strous provision by which the power of any Society, religions or lay, to hold more than two acres of land was made dependent upon the pleasure of the Governor in Council — in other words, of the Ministry of the day — we duly exposed as well as the want of grammar and coherency in other parts of the measure. We have now to comment upon an equally insidious attempt to vest the control of the Joint Stock Companies of this Colony in the hands of the same irresponsible Tribunal. We Tentnre to say that no more artful or more really dangerous scheme to give to the Executive a judicial power without judicial responsibility has been devised once Parliamentary Govern ment was first intro...
CORRESPONDENCE. THE BENEHAN CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 22 October 1863
COKBESPONDENCE. THE EENEHAN CIECULAB. We have been requested to give insertion to the following letter called forth by a leading article in the Guardian of Tuesday last, which is referred to in another part of our present issue : — To the Editor of the Guardian. -- 6kb, — rA circular, bearing my signature, m.u& sent round for idifitributiou among the ti^rn^fsf^^fefiSr^si^r-^iissSEfc purpose, wonld, if people were influenced : by you, be the source of distrust, ill-will. and alarm among the citizens of Brisbane. The Roman Catholic Priests, as a body, ought to be very thankful indeed for the fulsome praise yon have lavished upon them in your leader of yesterday. Any encomiums you were good enough to pass on me personally have, I assure yon, been accepted for what they seem to me to be worth, without having their sincerity called inco question for a moment. We. the priests in this diocese, as also the Bight Rev. Dr. Quiun, onr ecclesiastical superior, are strongly opposed to al...

ITame _-*« . # m_«. — »f»rried ♦ Copies of this document were pub licly delivered at every house in town where a fioman Catholic was thought to reside, and amongst the rest at the dwelling of the writer in the Guardian. Hard pressed for a subject on which to edify his readers on the following morning, in an evil moment he seized upon the circular. Opening his article with laudations of the Roman Catholic Clergy, inter spersed with a few uncharitable doubts, he works his subject up to the point, where by contrast, he believes his in sinuations will have most force, and then concludes by giving his own un truthful and unreasonable surmises in reference to the objects of the Circular, in the following words : — The ostensible object of the circular is to acquire the names of the members of the Rom&n Catholic religion id the town who will be willing to contribute towards 'the erection of the new Roman Catholic Chnrch in Nortli Brisbane.'

AID FOR IMMIGRANTS. [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 22 October 1863
AID FOB IMMIGRANTS. [CnKTBTBOTED.] Perhaps the most crying evil with which our Corporation is taxable, is the lethargic apathy with which they regard the health aud comfort of the immigrants who are con tinually landing upon our shores, and who, after being sheltered for a limited period at that well ventilated institution, known as the Depot, are compelled to seek refuge else where, if they have not been fortunate enough to secure employment.

Since the last meeting the subject of a steam-ferry had been agitamd by the citizens of both North and South* Brisbane. He was of opinion that it wou d be advisable to so arrange it, that the lessee should be bound to the expi ration of As lease, at two. three, or four months* nojnce, as Council might deem best to decide urV-n. In short, several gentlemen were of opiiion that the present ferry sys tem was a cisgrace to the city, and if the Council...
