OUT ON THE LOOSE! [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

OUT ON THE LOOSE! Having made up our book (and it is of course needless to Bay that we have won something less than a cool ten thousand upon these racos), we were silling upon the "Ipswich" on Tuesday morning, on our way to the future metropolis of that namo,eontcm plating muudaueufiairs through acloudofblue smoke, and intently engaged in puffing a cheroot. In spite of tho earnest protesta- tions of Sir G^^ge B*w*n we had been unable to avuil ourselves of his carriage, being detained in towu by the Colonial Sec- retary, to whom, after consuming some half donen bundles of cigars, wo gavo a slight outline lo assist him in thc formation of his Immigration Regulations. Tho steamer had scarcely departed from thc wharf when our' eagle eye in scanning tho deck detoctcd at once- some forms which wore not quito uuknown to us. Wo descended with ono of those awful frowns imprinted upon our countenance which have so often caused Richards to for- get for ono moment tho existence of tuttle soup, ...

THE END OF LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

THE END OF LITERATURE. Dui Newman, wc believe, was tho first per- son who assorted definitely in print the opinion that English literature has come? or at'any rato is fast coming?to an end, that the roll of English classics is made up, and that, whatever other great things may be in reservo.for us, there aro no more lite- rary triumphs destined to, swell our fume. Minor authors hay'o since repeated tho remark, arid have especially urged that new ;poetry has boconio- impossible, because thc subjects of poetry have been anticipated. Most peoplo would acknowledge that, so far as mediocre poetry goes, there is some truth in this. The ordinary conceptions of nature and man have been too frequently and fully expressed, and our ordinary feelings have been too copiously and pleasingly painted, for mediocre poets lo attain now an much reputation as has been won by tho mediocri- ties who havo had the good fortuno to live a little earlier. But few would allow that this offers any obstacle to t...

The Courier. THURSDAY JUNE 6, 1861 [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

Wbz futter. THURSO AT JUNE 6, 1801 Playing at soldiers may be a very ridi- culous amusement for grown-up persons: playing at politicians is not less ridicu- lous, but fal* more contemptible. Every one knows how useless a tumultuary mob is iii battle against a small company of regulars. But what is the difference ? In the regular and properly disciplined force, there is no provision made for tho gratification of individual caprice; but every one acknowledges a leader, and thinks only of doing the duty assigned to him as one of a company,.or a regi- ment j and thus unity of action becomes possible. So diverse are bum an wills, that tho very name of " volunteer" savours of in. subordination, and consequently bf weak- ness. Let any one glance, over the volunteer companies that have been formed in tbe3e' colonies, and say what effidieucy can be attained by such corps unless they voluntarily resign all free- dom of. will, or next door to it. By forming themselves i'.ito corps, and ap- poi...

Letters to the Editor. IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

Xetterrto the Editor. IMMIOrilATiOK. ¦Sin,?Although I do not feel myself called upon individually to take notice of a letter in your yesterday's issue, signed " A Work lng Man," wherein he charges thc govern* mont and Hs jiaid [agents willi duplicity and,,, deceit ih-misi-epresenting thc actual state of the labour market herc, as well as .-tho prices paid foi- labour, in order to further its own ends, by " catching flats to cheapen labour for its supporters ;" still, Sir, I consider : that it would be highly injurious to the in-.''.. torests bf Queensland to allow such a lotter lo spread, not only through this but also ? through the other colonies, unanswered. But in doing so I wish it to. be .distinctly understood that I do so simply as a citizen, and not as a defender of the government or its measures, which appear tb como moro immediately under thc wrath of "A Hard-working Man."

THUGGEE IN OUDH. (From the Owdh Gazette, March 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

THUGGEE IN OUDH. (From the Owlh Gazelle, Mureil 16.) Wk lately informed our readers that another case of thuggee bad occurred in tho Oonao district, and thnt the Superintendent of Police had apprehended tho criminal from whose disclosures it was expected that much of the mystery which has attached to those extraordinary cases might bo cleared up. We regret that this expectation bas not as yet been realized. But if this case has not proved important as a clue to other murders, it is not the less remarkable as an example of the complicated difficulties which surround the police officers, and iparylyse their de- tective abilities, whilst it ir. .interesting psychologically as an instance of tho weak- ness and thc st ron rr th of ilia natiw mi lid in its pursuit oi' the i.cior.eo of pcijury. i It anneurs that fully three months tgo in- j formation was given hy twp men* BhabobM and Bikharee, to Captain Ryall, that a mai named'Arjun was in the habit of going oil on long journeys without a...

INCORRUPTIBLE POLITICIANS. (From the London Review, March 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 June 1861

INCORRUPTIBLE POLITICIANS. (From the Zondon Review, March 10,) ¦ Sin'- Robert" Walpole, tine"of' tlie" ablest, or' at,-all events, one .of the most successful ministers whoever manatied tho affairs of Great Britain,, maintained that every mem- ber of the Legislature in his day had his price, and was to bo bought by money, by place, by flattery, or by a title. In our day, judging from the revelations made in our own and in other countries, it is not easy to como to tho conclusion that human nature has greatly altered for tho belter since Wal- pole uttered.his sarcastic truth. But yet we think it may bc admitted that the grosser forms of venality?the coarse, vulgar recep- tion of money bribes, has disappeared from the higher walks of political life in this country; and that when once a man bo comes a member of either House of Parlia- ment, he breathes a moral atmosphere, in which there exists little, if any, taint of pe- cuniary corruption. The general feeling with regard to the charg...

TENDERS. Sir-Allow me to correct an error which appeared in your yesterday's issue, in re-   ference to the Gatton bridge, wherein it is stated that the whole of the tenders were informal, i.e., sans signatures; as I happen to be one of the half dozen, or so, &c. I wish to state that my tender was cor- rect, so that the whole of the tenders could not have been informal. Whilst on this subject, I would urge on the Government the necessity of abolishing the present sys- tem of opening tenders in the absence of   contractors so tendering. l am, &c., CHARLES REEVES. Brisbane, June 6, 1861.   Sir,-In your issue of this morning you have published a long, letter signed "A Working Man."
