Local and District News. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 12 July 1861
ocral anttB 3ltrict ANfoS. Duanro the last three days we have been aslicted wilh very cold, wet, and uncomfortable weather in Ipswich. Owing to the profuse supply of heavy wet we hear that a great number of people are ailing. The Judge, Attor .General, and suite, who arrived by the Ipswich on nedneay afternoon, appeared quite cut up when they saw how much our roads were cut up, and what a poor prospect they had before them on their journey to Too. woomba, to open the Assizes. We sincerely trust that his Honor will not experience the realization of the prophecy which deolaree that the judges shall be over. thrown n miry prices. A correspondent some time ago lugeted that a vessel of light draught shoukl be laid onn wet weather to ply between Ipswich and thre foot of the Range, but his suggestion does not appear to have been adopted. Perhaps the- age is not yet euiciently adranoed for the undertaking. Seriously, however, we ughwt to set to work earnestly and mend our ways. Mr. William ...

A M?NIc?TALXT beuin an " r?ma in iperio -a government within a overnment-it is only natural that there shoul besome difficulty at times in determining how arrange so that the Government of the State at that of the Municipality should Oit h.

Every citizen pays bib sbs towards the general revenue; and, it he is ncluced in a municipality, he pays, inaddition his share of the local taxation. Were 'the r only of local benefit it would of course nothing more than equitable that those w gain the advantage should defray the cost ; t the fact is, that no municipal work can be ormed that has not an effet, more or less dir upon the whole cae,.

JUSTICE TO THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 12 July 1861
' BUSTICE TO THE COLONIES. =;The debate, which took place last week in the House dfCommone, rclative to-the military defence of opr extentive colonies, was:noticeable for the omission. by nore than one speaker of a truth of great importance. It was stated that, in point of fact,the danger which might be run by any one of our colonies from the attacks of. foreign powers wob'ld arise chiefy from .soni. qnirrel which the aiother-country: might lhve with them, and with g·iat.?nprpbbility-roin anydifferences between foreignnations and themselves.

We are congratulating ourselves;upon havihg gotrid of - The War in China,." we are free, at'least for the ombnrit, of" The Caffre War,''and woeare hoping to hear no more, except iithe House of Commons, of ' The War in New Zealaaa," when here, with out any preparatiqu or known provocation, rijes up . new war to trouble our breakfast tables. Who ever heard of a war in Gambia? iWhat dowe know of the King of Baddiboo, and why.should we rejoice at having taught him a "severe lesson "?' What harm has he done us, and why should:we be anxious to pay an additional income-tax for the pleasure of killing a handsome quotient of his sable subjects? Nine-tenths of us do not know where -the Gambia is, and the other tenth do only know -of it to hope they may never see it.

NOTE ON MANILA HEMP. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 12 July 1861
INOTE ONB 0 ITIA rIEMP. Thespidies of Plantain (musa textilis) which produces the so-called hemp'of these islands is very distinct from the nunmeros varieties, the fruit of which is used for food. The structure of the plant is the same, but the difference in the strength of the fibre is very great. The Hemp Plantain is grown upon hilly ground that is almost useless for other cultivation, and requires care in keeping it free from weeds and undergrowth while young. When the tress have arrived at the full age (about 3.years frdm the time the roots are plauted)tbdy give so much shade that few weeds or shrubs sill tow' nearethm. When the-plant is once in a -producing4cbndition there is a continual successidn of suckers trom 'the old 'roots. . . Plantations are'made by dividing the roots and setting them-at about6 or 8 feetapart.. A great variety of machines have been devised for cleaning hemp with: more .expedition than is possible by the original implement used by the .natives. It seems...

REPORT ON THE SEVENTEEN-MILE ROCKS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 12 July 1861
REPORT ON THE SEVENTEEN-MILE ROCKS. These rocks are entirely composed of sandstone, except the two northenmost, which form two small islands, and have the sandstone merely as a base. They all lie in an oblique direction to the bed of the river, at about an angle of 60 deg., except the south rock, which, with the north rock forms an angle with the direction of the stream of about 80 deg. The natural position of the channel would be towards the north side of the river, but the rocks themselves, and the foulness of the ground lower down the stream, have effectually prevented the excavation of a deep channel on that side of the river by the action of the stream. The ground on the south side, below the rocks, is more regular, and the bottom is, for the most part, shingle. The north and south rocks themselves also by their relative position to one another, being more directly tranverse to the direction of the stream than that of the other rocks - offer at once the most simple and practica...

THE PUBLICANS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 16 July 1861
TaE PuoLckai.--Tho "Sale of Liqudrs General Licensing Act of 1861" to be introilubed to Parlia ment by Mr. Cowper during the next session, does not in our opinion provide such a relief from the annoying and unheceesary restrictions to which they are now subjected, as the Licensed Victuallers have a right to expect. As it hba been calculated that the fees for licenses. during the current year will amount to £59,000, and the Customs revenue, in connection with the trade has been calculated at £408,000, it is manifest that those engaged in an occupation involving interests to the extant, of nearly half a million sterling, are justly entitled to a liberal consideration on the part cl the Legislature. There may. have been a period when circumstances rendered it. necessary that stringent regulations should be enforeed, nd a surveillance kept upon those who followed the occupation of Licensed Publicans. Butthat time has, happily, long since passed away, and there now remains no reason why ...
