The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 May 1864
Wht Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, MAY 13, 1861. TnE Colonial Secretary has given notice of his intention to move a series of resolu- tions, ol' a very remarkable character. The most appropriate term by which they can be designated, is that of " Curiosities " of Political Logic." It was said by William Hazlett, of the wonderful monologues of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, that the renowned conversa- tionalist was in the habit of " starting " from no premises, and arriving at no " conclusions." The same remark cer- tainly does not apply to Mr. Heiiueiit with regard to the resolutions to which tve refer. That gentleman sets forth astounding premises on which he bases unique conclusions. Tho resolutions which the lion, gentleman in- tends to propose would be marred by any attempt at abridgment on our part; we, therefore, give them in their entirety. They are to the following effect:-" 1. That the " rapid growth and development of the " colony preclude the possibility of any " fin...

THE HUNT. Jo«, tba huntsman, noxv trots along through the iomovlutt boro and brown pasture-fields to- wards the covert ¡ tho pack, eager and keen for the fray, clustering round tho heels of his horse. A few moments only olapso and tho sea of gorso is alivo xrith hounds poking here, there, and everywhere, seeking tlio lair of sly Reynard. Old oxpedenco having taught me Hint Gipsy Jim's knowledge of tho fox and his habits (for being half-brother to tho varmuit in his nature, how can it fail to bo othcrxxise ?) xvould servo me in good stead, I station myself nour to bim in order to have a good vicxv of ' Mr. Reynolds,' as Jim culls tho cunning animal, xvhen ho breaks covert.

INSTINCT OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 May 1864
INSTINCT OF HORSES. I HAVE said the horse knows Iub way home, candle or no candle, thereforo I lot him find it «.Tor himself', and I will givo this word of adxico to nervous, inexperienced riders, that they lake too much upon themselves when they snatch at the bridle, as they often do. When you xvorry your horse by pulling at the curb-rein (tho euri itself is altogether a wrong thing) you distract his attention from his proper business. Ho is a better judge than you can be as to the distance Ids nose should be from the road, so that ho may see it to advantage. It is quite a mistake to hold up his hoad :-tho darker the night, the more freedom you should give him. Besides this, thehorso linds his way at night as much by the car as by tho eye. Even in broad day it is greatly by tile hearing that he does so ; and nt night the other souses aro quickened when tho perceptions of Bight aro at fault. The horse, on on accustomed road, knows perfectly what sort of echo it is that should como f...
