The Courier. TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 June 1861

TUESDAY,. JUNE ll, 1861. The late inclemency of the weather, and ii tho number of half-olad and shivering r aborigines who were congregated in the p town, both reminded us that we had in- tended to remark upon tue manner in which the so-called "Queen's bounty" was bestowed upon tim blacks on the 24th of last mbnth. The annual presen- tation of a blanket each to those black- fellows who may apply for it, is the only fief given by the British nation as an acknowledgement for the possession of the lands of which tho Australian black was the original proprietor, and this fief should at least be made worth having. This continent was not annexed to tho empire of Great Britain by conquest, so that tho natives cannot be called a sub jugated race, and should not be treated as such. We are supposed to consider them British subjects; we make them amenable to British law, and profess to permit them to stand on almost the same footing as a white man when appeal- ing to.our courts for justice.

TRANSFER OF REAL PROPERTY. (From the S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 June 1861

TRANSFER OF REAL PROPERTY. {From Mc ,S. JJ. Herald.) The two Governments of the colonies of Victoria and Queensland arc both keeping paco with each other in their efforts to amend the law relating to the transfer of real pro- perty. Both of them luckily have got their Land Bills out of the road. That question has been disposed of, and no longer blocks thc way. Legislation on other questions has becomo possible Neither of them, np to the present time, has derived any very conspicuous benefit from free selection. Queensland lives in hope that it will do so presontly, and Victoria lamonts in despair that thc notion has tnrned ont a failure. But whatever the effect of their respective bills, whether they have given rise to expectation or disappointment, tho principal and most im- portant effect is that tho public is no longer convulsed on the subject, the parliamentary sessions ure no longer mado interminable, cabinets and constituencies ure ablo to think of good government in general, ...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 June 1861

TASMANIA. Wk have papers from Hobart Town and Launceston to thc 25th ultimo. The dissolution of Parliament has involved thc Island in the turmoil of a general elec- tion, to which everything else seems to have S!ven place. The writs have been issued, and must all be returned early in June. In Hobart Town, the candidates are Messrs. T. D. Chapman, ll. P. Adams, J. Davies (proprietor bf tho Mercury), W. L. Dobson, (Attorney-General), H. S. Barrett, W. A. Guosdon, S. Prout (Jill, and B. R. Patey. In Launceston, Messrs. J. Crooke.', H. Dow- ling, and R.B. Miller are candidates, and will probably (says tho Examiner) be re turned without opposition. The Queen's Birthday was observed both in Hobart Town and Launceston, \vith every demonstration of loyalty. Tho Volunteer Rifles made a general display?so did the Launceston Volunteer Eire Brigade, which marched in procession by torchlight, headed by the rifio band, and afterwards dined to- gether, IO the number of SO persons.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 June 1861

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have Adelaide papers to the 22nd ult. The South Australian Census.?Thc. superintendent informs us that he "has totalled the, census returns sent in by thc collectors, from which.it appears that thc population of the colony, as enumerated on the 8th April,.and without making any al- lowance for omissions, or persons travelling, was 127,000?viz., 65,000 males and 62,000 females. ; This would give an increase of 9000 souls over the census of the previous year; but Mr. Boothby attributes this in- crease principally to the fact that much greater care and accuracy has, upon this oc- casion, been displayed throughout tho work, especially in the distant portions of tho pro- vince, ns the natural increase since that dato would hardly amount to 4000 souls.- This is satisfactory thus early to be able to an- nounce the result of the census in round numbers.
