IMMIGRATION FROM EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

? ? — ♦ ? IMMIGRATION FROM EUROPE. The effect of the lately proclaimed £migratioa Regulations, and of the scheme concocted by Messrs. Herbert and Jordan in London, on emigration from the continent of Europe, is calcu lated to do considerable evil to tbe colony. Emigration from Europe, if we omit the British Empire, is now virtually at an end. True, the handful of Germans who are at present in the colony are to enjoy the privilege of bringing out their relations on like terms to those afforded to the people of Great Britain. But let any rational man endeavor to realise the dimensions of soil available for purposes of profit able culture within the bounds of the colony of Queensland, its varieties of climate, its natural resources in minerals, in woods, and in vegetation, and its accessibility to the great thoroughfare of nations; and say, if it is not a crime against humanity in general and against the best interests of this young colony iu particular, to raise np obstacles to its sp...

EMIGRANT CHAPLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

EMIGRANT CHAPLAINS. In connection with an advertisement which appeared in the daily papers of yesterday, our attention has been called to a proceeding of the Emigration Agent of the colony iu England, which is worthy of consideration. The advertise ment is a request that the passengers of tbe Fiery Star and friends will meet at the School under the Baptist Chapel to present a Testimonial to the Chaplain of that vessel. We have heard nume rous complaints from the passengers of the Fiery Star as to tbe position on board and the antecedents of the gentleman whom Mr. Jor dan had commissioned with the title of Chaplain ; and we were seriously debating the pros and cons of pointing out to the public the use Mr. JoRDiK was making of a power which was doubtless suggested for the benefit of the majority of the passengers on board of each ship, when the appearance — f ,-^-..

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 17 December 1863

SECOND BAT, Aboct one o'clock on Saturday last, tho steamer 'Settler' steamed doira the stream from Harris* wharf, to take np her position as Flagship for the second day's races, oppo site Breakfast Creek. We may state at once that this affair could bear no comparison to the Thursday's Begatta, for several reasons. In the first place. Saturday was not Separation Day, neither was it a general holiday. In the second place, the steamer Settler moored off Breakfast Creek was not tbe steamer Telegraph moored off the Queen's Wharf, Brisbane. Thirdly, the elements were in an unsettled state, and towards the dose of the day the ram damped tbe ardor, which generally increases as the fun progresses. And lastly, tbe after piece is never so well attended orpatfonised as the legitimate drama. The Sailing Match, which vras to have inangniated the day's amnsement, ** caved in,' as no third boat had the temerity to back her capacity against the two entries that had been made. The interim was agreea...

Bat as the day advanced, the North irind set in steadily — blowing a stiffbreeze, and moderating the heat that otherwise would have teen excessive. At this season of tbe year, a breeze from the North is refreshing in this latitude owing to the son's declina tion from the Antipoles, sis months ago the effect would have been different. It was eleven o'clok before the steamer 'Tele- graph ' took up her position in mid stream, between Harris's Wharf and the North Brisbane Ferry.
