letters to the Editor. SCOTT v, STEWART AND. HEMMANT: Sir,?We desire, through the medium of your columns, to call tho attention of the public generally, but more especially of our fellow-tradesmen, to tho decision given in.' the above case, as reported in another column. Wo offer no apology for doing so; as we-feel convinced that the present case, though involving a small amount; may pave the way to abuses and frauds neither few nor unimportant. The circumstances of'the case are briefly these:?On Saturday, May 11th,. Mr. Scott came to our establishment with his wife, who made a few purchases to .the amount of. 12s. or 13s., tendering in '^payment to' Mr.' Stewart, who was attending upon her, ,n note crumpled up; this Mrs. Scott gave; and Mr. Stewart took (giving change ac- cordingly) as a one pound note, placing it with our other ono' pound notes; which we keep in a separate compartment. of the drawer from all other; monby.

MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. BROOK V. BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1861

MARRIAGE WITH A DECEASED     WIFE'S SISTER.   BROOK V. BROOK.   The judgment in the House of Lords, which has finally disposed of all doubt as to the invalidity of marriages with a deceased wife's sister, has an importance beyond the imme- diate occasion. The particular question which arose in the suit of Brook v. Brook would never have been considered an open one but for the pertinacious misrepresentations of a Society which divided its efforts between attempts to alter and endeavours to evade a well-established law. Organized agitation   has enormous power in England-so great, that we may almost calculate beforehand the precise amount of lecturing and tract- writing which will suffice to create a public opinion on either side of a really doubtful question. But the machinery for the manu- facture of opinion has never yet succeeded in turning out judicial decisions according to order ; and a Society which has com- mand...

THE NATIVE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 4 June 1861

THE NATIVE POLICE. Sir, The Courier of the 2nd instant has just reached us, and by it we have learnt that a committee has been appointed to in- quire into, and report upon, the management, &c., of the native police force. The Colonial Treasurer, after having moved for a select   committee for the above purpose, said it was totally untrue that the Government were inclined to pass over and palliate the indiscriminate slaughter of the aborigines. On the contrary, they were inclined to make the fullest investigation into those charges. He then says the whole question is mixed up with party spirit and pseudo-philanthropy, that when the utility or behaviour of tho force was called in question, any provocation given by the natives, was kept in the back-   ground, whilst provocation given by the whites was, on the other hand, always put back as a palliative for the excesses of the blackfellows. We shall not accuse the honorable gentleman of pseudo-philanthr...

The North Australian Meeting. [BY ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH.] Ipswich, Tuesday Evening. At about half-past ten this morning, the road to the course, and the-course itself, pre- sented a very animated appearance; every sort of vehicle, from the old-fashioned family coach down to the slow and steady bullock team, were en route for tho course; and every description of mount, from tho met-. tied hunter down to the huck on his last legs, was pressed into the servico of eques- trians, while mixed among those were several hundreds who from choice or necessity went on Shanks' pony, no doubt cogitating on the disparity of sublunary things in general, and ou tho couplet of the Irish wag in particular, commencing? " When we're rich we ride in chaises." A 1 ittle before tho first race commenced, there were over 1500 people on tho course, and among these were the Governor and Lndy Bowen, who appeared to take much interest in the sports of the day.
