Letters to the Editor. THE CHAMPION RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 June 1861

üetter« io the Editar. THE CHAMPION RACE. SIR, -I was much surprised toread in your issue of Saturday, the 8th instant, in the report of the first dvy's races, a complaint against the stewards of discourtesy towards Mr. J. H. Atkinson, mentioned as being a stoward appointed to represent New South Wales in case of dispute on tho day of the Champion llaco. This remark in your report is the first intimation I over had of any person being so appointed in thal capacity. Mr. Atkinson is personally un- known to me, and was never introduced to mo. Had an intimation been given to me that such was the case, as certainly should have been done, as Secretary of the Jockey Club-or even had Mr. Atkinson been intro- duced to me as a stranger from the neigh- bouring colouy-I should have felt much pleasure in showing him, as any other visitor to the races, overy possible courtesy. At such a time, when it is known my duties ware so multifarious, it was impossible I could be in more piucos th in one, o...

GENERAL CIALÜINI. THE Times correspondent, writing from Gaota gives the following sketch of General Cialdini, Commancler-in-Cliief of the Italian army under King Victor Emmanuel :- > An artist came yesterday to head-quarters at Mola to take a photograph of General Cialdini and his staff. I wish it were in my power to give you a pen-and-ink sketch of these gallant fellows, and especially of their leader, a man who has already filled several pages in t)ie book of his" country's history, and has now, by his able management of this siege, added lustre to his name, achiev- ing, what might seem a fit conclusion to the cârepr of many a ,man of less lofty aspira- tions, hut which, as the General is still in the primo of manhood, may,,perhaps, turn out, to,be only the prelude of still nobler deeds'.', Enrico Cialdini, bom at Beggio, was sent for his studies to Parma, at the time that this latter town, under the auspices of Maria Louisa, in the early part of her reign, was looked upon as a...

The Courier. FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1861 [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 June 1861

®Öe Courier. nun Ar JUIVE u, im Tine Supremo Court Bill, which has been iutroduced by the Attorney-General to the Legislativo Assembly "in n slightly modified form," stands for a second reading this day. Wa ha va taken advantage uf tho adjournment of the Houso to go through it rery carefully, and we must pay that although it con- tains, as printed, some improvements upon the bill of last cession, it does not belie the dosoription which the Attorney General gave of it whon moving for leavn to bring it in. The modifications made ia the bill bj the government, though not unimportant, would have been, by themselves, too slight to justify the'ox peotation of a settlement of this vexed question. But the voice of the people has, almost at the twelfth hour, reached the ministerial ears, and the Attorney General has announced that the govern- ment will be prepared to make other alterations in committee. Several of the proposed amendments have been printed separately, and if they should be ad...

AMELIORATION OF THE CONDITION OF THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 June 1861

AMELIORATION OP THE CONDITION ! « ,i , OP THE ABORIGINES. - ¡Sin,-As I have seen that steps are to be .taken by our Legislature to better the con- dition of the aborigines of Queensland,you will kindly allow me to give my humble opinion about that matter. It has been said in general that all efforts to christianize and civilize this nation have been in vain. I for my part say the contrary, because I cannot believo such an assertion. As long as wo are convinced that they are men, and not orang-outangs-as a certain gentleman in Sydney tried to maintain in a clever speech about fourteen years ago-we are compelled to believe that they aro included in the plan of salvation. I do not hesitate to slate that fivo cr ten years missionary labour among this degraded people wilb^ut success, upholds the assertion that rney nre incapable of improvement, i'|10 Moravian missionaries labored iu Greenland twenty eight years without success, in which time they sometimes have not seen a single na- tive...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THURSDAY (YESTERDAY). [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 June 1861

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT ) THURSDAY (YESTERDAY). THERE is a report in circulation that it is intended to propose Mr. Macalister again at the nomination on Friday. If elected a second time, he would doubtless stand well to his oars, for though he is deservedly popu- lar, and one of the fittest men we can find to represent us, a second "shy" would prove fatal. There were a great number of interesting cases in the Police Court on Tuesday, and I re- gret being compelled to leave the court in the middle of the proceedings, as I had intended to give your readers the full benefit of my notes this issue. But on the top of this comes the Redbank case, and the enormous length of the evidence, together with the curiosity-exciting account of the matter which appeared in your issue of yesterday, excludes any detail at present of the cases I have referred to, by calling for a pretty full report of this one I may mention, however, that amongst the Tuesday's cases were an assault by Mr....
