ASIATIC LABOR FOR NORTH AUSTRALIA. (From the Adelaide Express.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 May 1864
ly ASIATIC LABOR EOR NORTH AUS lio TRALIA. (From the Adelaide Express.) i PEOPLE say Hint fho two grout conditions or success in the Northern Territory aro fertilo soil and congenial chútate. AVe tnko leave to differ from " people." AVo sivy, on the contrary, that both soil and climate moy bo comparatively disregarded if wo can get the one great desi- deratum-LABOn. On that word tho future of North Australia hangs. Or course, " labor" cannot rniso crops upon bare granite, but wo do not suppose that North Australia /* bare granite. Or course, labor cannot producá wealth in n perpetual sirocco ; but wo do net understand that perpetual siroccos ure tho normal condition or Northern Australia. AVe uro quite prepared to bcltevo that Northern Australia has poor land as well as good, and that the weather is not everything that could bo desired, especially if estimated according -to European standards. But, still, we think that Asiatics might not only live whero Europeans would die, but enjo...
THE CALAMITY AT SHEFFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 May 1864
TUE CALAMITY AT SHEFFIELD. THE following uro additional particulars in reference to this sad catastrophe : . Tho bursting of the Dale Dj-ke embankment (says a correspondent of Iho Daily Telegraph), and Iho inundation or tho bcnutiful valley of tho Don, is a calamity which exceeds in ils magnitude and tragic conséquences the, similar disaster which occurred at Holmfirth twelve years ago. Tho scene, now that tho waters luire subsided,-now;, likewise, that tho terror and alarm, tho first wail of anguish and sorrow, and tho last cry of despair have subsided too is mournful even to weariness. It would need the oye of tin inhabitant, or ii familiar spectator of the objects which but three short days sinco wero standing in tho sight of Sheffield, lo ap- preciate the sadness of tho strange waslo which the flood lins covered and has left. Yet thoso very persons who have behold Iho valley in its apparent security, mid who must hove- known every farm mid mill, ovory road mid foolpuHi upon it, ...
THE CALEDONIAN ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 May 1864
¡ed I }^rXE CALEDONIAN ASSOCIATION, As we predicted in our yesterday's issue, the first annual gathering of the Caledonian Asso- ciation proved a signal success. Tho great ex- ertions made by tho members of tho committee to ensure the games being properly carried out were well rewarded, and that fact will doubtless incite them to renewed efforts on a future occa- sion. AVe have no hesitation in affirming that a larger number of persons of both sexes were assemblod together in the Botanic dardens yes- terday than has ever before congregated in one spot in tho colony of Queensland. From ten o'clock in tho morning until shortly before the programme was finished, the persons employed at the two gates in the capacity of money takers were busy, and all day long there was a large crowd nssemblcd at each gate. Tho total num- ber of visitors, we have been informed by tho committee, who of course are in a position to judge from the number of tickets sold, was over fourjhousand, which is certa...

!3je Courier. rUBLISHED-DAILY. ij'znyESDAr, MAY 25, ISGI. THE " Military ContributionsBill," which was read a second time and passed through committee on Frida}' last, in the Legisla tive Assembly, is, we belieyc, one which will meet with the same approbation from the country as that which was accorded to it by the members on botli sides of the House. It certainly appears at first sight somewhat extraordinary that in this colony, wbich is so far removed from any probable scene of warfare, that the people in it should be called upon to devote a large amount of money towards the maintenance of a regular soldiery ; but when we con sieler how rapidly tlie colony is extending northwards, how gold and other fields for tlie development of wealth are being dis- covered, we are inclined to agree with the provisions contained in the bill introduced by the Government, and to support the policy enunciated in it of having in the colony a military force numerically larger than that now in it.
