THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 3 June 1861

THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN MEETING. Well, the first Queensland Champion Sweepstakes is at last over, and Mentor, with all his supposed sagacity, has managed to give a wrong "tip," fer which be begs leave to apologize to the public gonerally, and thoso who took his advice in particular, in tho most abject manner possible. Ho still hopes, however, that his kind friends will gi7o him overy credit for tho best inten- tions, and asoribe his failure this time moro to his misfortune than to his fault. I endeavoured in tho article I wrote, nnd which appeared on the day of tho race, to place the whole public running of these two old competitors in its proper light, and gavo it as my firm conviction that the mare would not bo in condition to race successfully with the horse. That I wns in some measure mistaken, as is proved by tho result of ihoracp, is very evi- dent, but still nil those disinterested indi- viduals who had the pleasure of witnessing the magnificent contest between Zoo and Ben Bolt,...

Fen wickhall, England, a wealthy nobleman, married Clara Seymour, tho daughter of a poor clergyman, who lived on the Cumber- land Hills, at whose house Sir John had been detained for some weeks by an acci- dent received while upon a hunting excur- sion. The father of Clara died a short time before her marriage, and she brought lo her husband no dower but her beauty and her love. The wedded pair made the tour of the continent, and soon after their return to England Lady Fenwick presented ber lord with a son and heir, who was named John North Fenwick, and who became tho heir presumptive to his father's title and wealth. Sir John had no other relatives save two sisters, who resided, with him, and who, while pretending to approve of the match he had made and to love and esteem his beau- tiful young wife, were in reality scheming against her and determined upon ruining her. But their machinations produced n...

At the commencement there were scarcely a dozen persons present; about thirty more carno in during tho proceedings. The Returning Officer, Mr. Charles < S. Warry, opened thc proceedings by saying that it again became his duty to call upon the-electors to nominate a candidate for West Moreton, rendered vacant by the dis- qualification of Dr. Challinorand Mr. Forbes. He then read the advertisement, and the writ of tho Speaker, and called upon some elector to propose Dr. Challinor, as tho only candidate at present in the field. A considerable pause ensued. Dr. Chal- linor was present, but only about three elec- tors besides, none of whom seemed disposed to take the part of proposer. Mr. J.

EARL GREY ON CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1861

EARL GREY ON CHINA, Lord Gkey's striking, almost startling re- view of English connexion with China may perhaps have been inspired by too faint a sense of the difficulties of English trade and in those latitudes; but it is not tho less valuable because it excites tho most pro- found contempt in tho muling writers who regard every brush with the Chinese as an opportunity gained to English pluck, and every critic of Chinese wars as an " Anylo Mandarin." The moral is the more likely ( to bo true, becase it is gathered from a tolerably wide field of history. Eveuts aro always moro instructive in groups than singly; and oven those who insist most vehemently that justice was with tho En- glish in every separate passage with the Chinoso Government, will probably abate their confidence when they aro forced to cast a comprehensive gkneo over tho occurrences of thirty years. Thus much will at least bc granted, that English commerce has beena terrible misfortune for China. There is every reaso...
