POLYNESIAN LABOUR IN QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 25 August 1876

POLYNESIAN LABOUR IN QUEENSLAND. In a book recently published in London entitled the The Lost Continent, or Slavery and the Slave Trade, by Mir. Joseph Cooper, the following references are made to Polynesian lsbonr in Queoonland:-It was under the auspices of Sir G. Bowen tihat the introduction of South Sea I'landers under labor contracts into Queensland first took place. The illegality of the course was fully proved at the time, and the results brought deep discredit on the English name. To apply a remedy to the evile thus introduced, the Brisbane Parliament passed a bill in 1808, but this act, as was anticipated by many able men, did not put an end to the evils-kidnap ping and murder continue to be as rife no beforo. Publio attention has been so much startled and absorbed with the atrooities committed in reoruiting the Polynesian natives that little attention has been paid to the question as what in their aetualetato on the plantations in Queensland. The coolies being thus captured...

DEPARTURE OF MRlB. JOHN. .ITBAVBNSON. Mr. John Stcaveneon, who has been for so long a time connected with the Roads and Bridges department, aud latterly with the allway department, yesterday took his departure for England tn the Lincoln abire. His leave-taking was of the briefest and most private nature. In fact, a very large t. umber of people connected with tue departmenut, including the Engiuoer-in-Ulief, were unaware of Mr. Steavenson's intended severance from the Grovernment service. About three weeks ago he applied for leave of absence for a year on lull pay on the ground of long service, and to enable him to adjust sJme sinonetry affairs in Eugland. The Govern. ubut granted Mr. Steavenaon leave on full pay for a portion of the twelve months, and on half-pay for the remainder. A variety of reasons are given by his friends for his sudden and unostentatious depar. ture, any one or all of which might be re guarded s suffiiolent, were it not for the tact that very painful rumors a...

Il I L 100 J I Ii[. .... (roxm owa owN coaaRESPONDENT.) .: Tuesday, August 22, Our steamship fleet appears to have been exceptionally unlucky' this season. To-day the Steam Navigation Board held an inquiry into the grounding of the Jula Peroy, which endeavored on Sunday last to take a short cat to Melbourne vta Williamstown. The captain's evidence showed that he relied upon the: average speed of his vessel to time his distance, the fog being dense at the time, and that le was jst about to give orders to stop her, when she went ashbore at full speed ; and he then discoverel he was about a mile out of his onurse, and had covered the spase from the Lightship to Point Gelllbraud in about eleven minutes quicker than usual, owing partly to the ship being lightly laden. He took no soundings, but kept his fog whistles blow ing; and his object in cracking on all speed was to save the tide. The chair. man of the Navigation Board said that it was known that oompasses were usually influenced by...

The Railway Station. (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 25 August 1876

The--Railway Station;. . (To the Editor of the Portland Guardian.) Smn,--Visitors to Portland naturally express surprise at the'place it is proposed to put the railway station; and why, instead of placing down in the hollow where the excavations are made for it, could not it have been placed in Porcy-strroot, at its intersection with the line, and about opposite Browning's Folly. In this colm mending position thie buildings the Govern ment propose to erect would sot off the town to advantage, and would be easy of access to the whole of the inhabitants. When the queostion was put to the Council the other day, by the Engineer.in-Chief, whether they were satisfied with the present position. of the etation, they naturally said yes, believing the pr'sent arrangement could not now be alteredrbut I have it on the very ligheat authority that, had that body expressed even a wins the station should be in Percy-street, the Engineer-in-Chief would have recom mended that their wishes should be c...
