THE MAGISTRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
? ? THE MAGISTBACT. No HAtf or body of* men can be guilty of greater social mischief, than that of bringing the administration of justice into contempt. The peace of society and the equitable conduct of the various relations of life are so largely in fluenced by a respect for the Law and its dispensers, that it is a main feature of irise government, to place magis terial authority, from the Chief Justice downwards, above suspicion. ' So great a social advantage is only to be secured by : conferring the power of dealing with the liberties of their fellow-men, on individuals who, by character, knowledge, and freedom from improper influence, may be reasonably expected to administer the -law intelligently and impartially, and thereby secure for their decisions the respect and assent, so- -essential to a healthy state of spelety. ? The history of civilisation furnishes mo-e numerous examples of anarchy and social discontent, arising fiixn the , maladministration of justice, than from ' a...
The North Australian. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
©|t f[«v% Australian:. SATURDAY, JANUARY W, 1864. Feom East, West, North, and South, from every district in the colony, there is a cry for more labor. The unskilled laborer readily commands from £30 to £50 per year, with rations, and is not to be got on these terms. Bail way, works are proposed ; general road making is proposed ; bridge building and the erection of public build ings are proposed ; cotton and BUgar culture must be extended ; pastoral en terprise and increase have to be pro vided for. 'But where is the labor ? Building has declined, landed or house property will not sell, the merchant and trader complain of the decline of business, the public revenue has not increased in proportion to the popula tion, and the Banks have advanced their discount and limited their credits. Wherein is the cause of this sudden change in our condition ; is it not to be found in tbe mismanagement of onr old system of emigration and in the unpa latable conditions and working of the new scheme...
PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT. ARTICLE I. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
PROVINCIAL 430 VEENMENT. ABTICLE I. In our issue of the 15th we adverted to the principles which' should guide the national expenditure. We then pointed out that the real cause of separation between the colonies has ever bees the inequitable distribution of the proceeds of taxation. We have now to illustrate and enforce our argument by reference to those current circumstances, with which we have to deal. In a territory so vast as that of Queensland, it must happen that a very large number of local interests will spring up. The single accident that Toowoomba was at the head of a prac tical buUoek-dray pass over the Main Range, made that township what it is. It becomes the interest of Toowoomna that any interior line of communication in that direction «hould make Too woomba a centre. It has happened that Rockhampton is the part at which the traffic of the Northern districts finds alike its destination and outlet The trade of Rockhampton increases — contribution to the colonial revenue...

We look not oat of the window, on which the frost hu settled in beautiful.' crystallised shapes, ' to watch the felling snow-dates as they fall so softly all day long— all night long. No glad shout of boyish glee comes up- from -the far distance on the wings of the frosty and transparent air. We may, not gather, as of old, an uh broken family at the house of the grandfather, who gazes with honorable pride and happiness upon -his children and upon their children, and who half renews his prune: when perchance he takes one mm at 'blindman's buff,' and skips round chairs and tables in vain pursuit of merry urchins^ catching him by. the coat, a*nd dodging between his legs. . _; No : fireside gathering of childhoodfa-no review of the past year' 6 family fortunes, while £he youngstife pl*y at '.snap dragon,' * - itfthe kitchen,- and wish 'that Ohrist-. ma...

COMMISSION OF THE PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
COMMISSION OF THE PEACE. SostEof our contemporaries hate. -of late given attention to the Commission of the Peace, the qualifications of some of its possessors, and the probable causes cf their distinction. The mo tives for re-opening this question at the present time does not transpire through the comments, but |fae knowledge that the Commission ib usually revised for re-issue at the beginning of each year, is doubtless the -real reason for jon.-nal- istic attention, although other circum stances collateral to the distinction may have directed the consideration. But whatever may have been the stimulant the.refsrence is well timed, if the object be a sincere desire to purge the toll of fill _ those who have neither the ability, education, nor character to at them for so exalted a position. If, on the contrary, the subject 'has. been brought to the surface to farther a party purpose, or under the pretext of urging a reform to gratify personal ill-will against some few who enjoy the w...

BRIDGE COMMITTEE. The Bridge Committee held a meeting at three o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the new and spacions auction room of Messrs. Trundle and Cameron. On the motion of Mr. Cameron, Mr. Cribb was voted to the chair. The written resignation of Alderman A. J. Hockings was theu read. TTe stated that havina- re cently been elected to the Municipal Council, and as that branch of the Municipal government had the supervision of public works, &c, it became him to tender his re signation, as already intimated by him to Committee. He, nevertheless, would con tinue to take deep interest in all works of public improvement. It was moved by Messrs. Cauebob and Lyons that the resignation be accepted. The minutes of the last meeting having been read and approved, the Secretary, Mr. Cameron, stated that he had not succeeded in obtaining any information of material importance. The Corporation were at pre sent laying on their oars, nor would they he in a position to go on with the wor...

MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
MABrBOROUGH. (From our files of the Chronicle to Dec. 31.) We nnderstand that Mr. Davidson has received instructions to commence the im mediate survey of the line for the erection of the telegraph posts between Maryborough and Uayndah. Before the end of the new year we may hope to be in telegraphic com munication with our fellow-colonists throughout the length and breadth of this continent — a boon we shall never be able fully to estimate the advantage of until we enjoy it. We see by the Burnett Argus that the Surveyor-General, A. C. Gregory, Esq., arrived in Gayndah last Thursday, having been examining the line along which it is proposed to run the electric wire from Dalby to Gayndah, and has again set off to view the line from that town to Bockhampton via Camboon. No news has reached us from the diggings since our last. The party equipped at Gayndah to try the ground by sluicing, are on tbe spot, and having we understand a plentiful supply of water, will soon test the extent to wh...

GAYNDAH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
GAYNDAH. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) On the evenings of Wedneesday, Thurs day, and Friday of last week, onr dramatic amateurs gave three entertainments, and afforded us considerable amusement. These performances, whether as regards the qua lity of the acting or their pecuniary result, have been very successful. Several horses in the neighbourhood of the town are being prepared for the ensuing Christmas races, and I hear of many others which we may expect from the country, so that there is little doubt but tbat our fa vourite sport will come off as successfully as ever. I am glad to see that the number of chil dren in attendance at our national school is steadily increasing, and that the master and mistress are gaining the good opinions of aU sorts of people. We are at hist fairly into a hot summer. On several occasions the thermometer has risen to 100 deg. in the shade, while the heat in the glare of the sun was almost un bearable. Mr. M.
