CLARENCE AND NEW ENGLAND. [A bridged from the District Papers.] [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 5 July 1861

CLARENCE AND NEW ENGLAND. [Abridged from the District Papers.]     Efforts are being made on the Clarence to add to the capital of the local steam com- pany, a sum sufficient to warrant the pur- chase of another boat, the traffic between that district and Sydney having increased to such an extent as to demand that such a step should be taken. 200 shares wove sub- scribed for at a public meeting at Ulmarra. Land to the amount of £11,400 in value had recently been sold at Grafton, in the estate of Mr. Joseph Sharpe. There were 58 lots altogether, 26 of which were allotments in the town of Grafton, and the remainder were farms in the vicinity. The first lot, consisting of two roods, in the town of North Grafton, was purchased hy Mr. Wrench for £315, or at thc rate of £630 per acre. This certainly speaks well for the advancement of Grafton, Mr. Platt, the sub-collector of Grafton, is appointed to the treasury. Mr. Ham- burgher, of that department, is appointed ...

GLADSTONE. ?-,- Ml [FR03I OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Bil! Ulaiistone, July 1. ? IT is refreshing io find that whilst a Bpirit of economy and retrenchment is swaying tho Assem- bly, they have not seen it desirable to phico their veto on thc motion ol'a thousand pounds for the erection ufa wharf at Gladstone.

MARYBOROUGH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) JULY 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 July 1861

MARYBOROUGH. h (moa ocr own cobbestomient.) July 3. There is now little doing to record. Tho races to come oil on the 24th seem to occupy nearly all our spare time. I am no racing man, still I fee) glad to he able to say that the labours of tho Race Committee seem likely to be crowned with com- plete success. The subscriptions uro good, mid consequently the prizes will not reflect any dis- credit on tlie district. Taken in another light, the success of, the races will stimulate oilier under- takings requiring vitality, and therefore they may be productive of good. To-day several horses ar- rived in town from Gayndah to compete with our horses for the rewards and the palm ol' victory. I trust it may not be taken us any unfair reflection when I say that our horses want to be placed in competition, so that more attention may be pnid lo improvement, ns I mush fear we shall not shine on Hie turf.

DALLING DOWNS. (ntOSI OUR OWX CORRESPONDENT.) Toowoojiiia, July 4. Tim Assizes.?Thc approaching assizes ure likely to bo the heaviest that have yet been held herc. The criminal calendar shews no less than 2G cases. Deilnetinjr four escaped prisoners, thia leaves 22 eases for trial, in addition to a large civil list. Each succeeding assize makes the fact more appa- rent that quarter sessions must shortly supersede the present judicial arrangements. It is not only an act nf injustice to the prisoners, but a heavy burden on the revenue, when persons committed a week or two alter the assizes, are kept for nearly six months in tho lock-up, awaiting trial at the forthcoming sessions. Much dissatisfaction is felt on account of the criminal jury summonses being u neck behind time, and those fur the special jury not having at this date been issued ut nil. Surely this matter requires investigation by "tho powers that be." Wu have every prospect of being pretty well "crowded out"?one inn alone...

NATIONAL SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 July 1861

NATIONAL SCHOOLS. Tiffi half-yearly examination of the pupils in the North BrUbauu schools took place on Wednesday and yesterday, the boys being examined on the first-named day, and tho girls on the latter. As nu the last occasion, the number of visitors was very limited, hut thc attendance yesterday was nevertheless creditable. That this absence of the pu rents mid friends ol' the children is not uttrlhutu lile to a hick of general interest in the institution itself, is plainly demonstrated by tho huge and in- creasing number ol' pupils. The buildings in which the buys' nnd girls' schools uro respectively conducted, haye both become too smnll for those who attend, tho moro especially so in tho latter cose, where, from the over-crowded state of the rooms, tho proper classification nf the scholars is at present nu impossibility. This serious incon- venience will, however, be cll'eetiinlly remedied when tho building now in cottrso ol'erection is com- pleted, and there cnn bo no doubt ...

The Courier. SATURDAY JULY 6, 1861 [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 July 1861

¦??. nov SATURDAY JULY 0, IftOi aga Tug strongest argument that lias been advanced io favour of the retention of a Blaok Police Force, instead of the sub- stitution of a white police with black traatkcr.s, is the comparative ease with which the blaok troopers can thread their way through dense sorubs. Upon this hinges the question, whether the black force is entirely useless, or to ii certain} extent useful. It is a position which, at first sight, appears almost unassailable j for, if left to oonjeoture, 'we should naturally suppose that the uavagq would be superior to the civilised policeman in work of.this kind, and it cannot be de- nied that the^principal service rendered by the existing force is of this kind. When, however, in place of conjecture we have the positive, testimony of eye- witnesses to the wonderful exploits of the Native Police in the remote interior, it may appear to some that the advocates of the black force have sufficiently made out their ease. The argument wil...

REVIEW. [CONTRIBUTED.] "THE CHAMPION RACE AND ZOE;" two sermons preached by the Rev. J. W. C. DRANE, Congregational Minister at Ipswich. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 6 July 1861

REVIEW. [C'ONTllIllUTEl).] 'The Champion Rack and 7,oe;" two ser- mons preached hy the Rev. J, W. C. Drane, Congregational Minister nfc Ips- wich. These discourses have afforded us much solid pleasure. We, before reading them, had anticipated that tho evils to morals arising from horse-racing would have constituted thc principal topic of remark, hut were not disap- pointed when wc found that higher ground than this was taken, which would leave not only horse-racing, hut. all other umusoments having n demoralising tendency, without a solitary support. These two sermons arc emphatically "gospel sermons," and the tact displayed in making # great public event subservient to tho spread of gospel (ruth excites in our minds the highest admiration. Wo do not flatter Mr. Drano ; wo simply say that bo hus performed a duty?has acted up to thc responsibility of tho position ho holds ns a minister of Christ, and has, indeed, fol- lowed his Master's example, and that of tho Apostle Paul, whoso in...
