The lunatics wero handcuffed to each other, but tho prisoner bad no restraint upon his movements. Tho party camped at night with a dray at Flagstone Creek, where tho constables slept soundly.

WXjz (fromm* MONDAT, JUNE 17, ISO! The Seleot.Committee upon the organi- zation of tho Native Police must evie dently. 'have been appointed under th iiufluence of some malignant star. It appears to be the evil gouius of the Houjo of Assembly during the present session. The Houso inaugurated its appointment by an impotent and ludicrous attack upon tho Press, and on! Tuesday last tho woes and sorrows of tho committee, hapless source of in.ipira ition lo Mr. Watts, were tho cause of | another debate. ' "Blustering fellows" who write in newspapers, to adopt tho | euphonious phraseology of the Colonial Secretary, will persist in misinterpreting the committee's intentions, and question- ing its impartiality. The susceptible feel- ings of Mr. Watts are goaded until their I unhappy victim is driven to tho verge of distraction. lu order to prove the per- fect impartiality of the committee, the members of tho cotnmitteo and of the House generally, abuse in good round terms those who express a...

ELECTIVE UPPER HOUSE. (From the Empire.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 17 June 1861
ELECTIVE UPPER HOUSE. (From tho Empire.) Oun Queensland papers indicate the proba- bility of speddy ''political reforms, more hopeful for that colony thnn anything thnt has occurred since separation. The great stride made by Queensland in advance of her former position was inevitable from the vastness of hbr resources, lt would, how- ever, have been of small benefit to the great body of the colonists hereafter, if tho Le- gislature continued in its present restricted form. With ah Assembly elected by n monetary suffrage, and a -nominated "Upper House to which the Governor claimed tho right of making life appointments on his own responsibility, it is easy to see that the whole governing power, and tho whole wealth of tho colony, would soon pass into tho hands of thc few to the _ ex- clusion of tho many. We rejoico to observe that there is a prospect of arresting this misfortune, and the train of evils that would follow, by returning, to those sound principles of popular represen- ten...
