THE LATE FLOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
THE LATE FLOODS. A CORRESPONDENT writing from Condamine &nbsp; township on Monday last says- "I write to tell you that we are yet in the land of the living after the deluge, although we are still sur- &nbsp; rounded by water. From the reports that we &nbsp; receive, the loss of property on the Maranoa must have been tremendous. Mr. Tooth's station of Maryvale was swept away; all that was left of the house and store being one corner &nbsp; post. Daniel Coghlan lost all his sheep except thirty-five. Mr. Wiseman is also reported to &nbsp; have lost everything. Mr. W. Burton's house &nbsp; &nbsp; was swept away. His wife (formerly a Miss McMahon) was saved only by two men swim- ming for her. In the Condamine township the loss has not been great, the destruction being &nbsp; confined principally to fences and out buildings. The price of provisions, &c., is very high. Corn &nbsp; is £1 3s. per bushel. We have ...

QUEENSLAND AS IT IS. TO THE EDITER OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
QUEENSLAND AS IT IS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir, - In your leader of Thursday's date you &nbsp; &nbsp; very justly review the price of breadstuffs, and in so doing, assign very cogent reasons for the great price flour has attained. You then refer to the many poor in Victoria and Sydney, and you wind up by consoling yourself that no such &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; poverty existed in Queensland. Allow me to inform you that there are many families resid- ing not half-a-mile from the Post-office, who are &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; reduced to one or two meals per day, and the &nbsp; writer was at a house the other evening where a whole family partook of bread and water for &nbsp; their evening meal. Their position has been &nbsp; brought about from causes quite beyond their own control; however, I believe they would &nbsp; rather die than let their position be known. Such is life in ...

TO MY WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
TO MY WIFE. &nbsp; Love is the heaven-born and unselfish power, Which by a magic spell subdues the heart, And holds it by affection deep and pure ; Which, though its silken chains inflict a smart, Yields, when the torment of suspense is past, Peace, full and perfect, to the harrassed breast. Unfeigned love (and such for thee is mine) Is more than protestation, praise, or aught That flattery with servile heart can twine To ensnare the simple - in its wiles untaught. These are the masks dissemblers can assume, &nbsp; Not love's ingenuous and rich perfume. Love is the pouring out of soul to soul- The confidential intercourse of minds Congenial,-and to attain the goal Of all its hopes, where in the end it finds The lot for which it languishes must be Reciprocal in its deep purity. Such, dearest, let our love for ever stay! Each unto other sacrificing SELF. And Self upon the altar pass away, The arch-usurper of our nobler wealth! &nbsp; Both to the love Divine obe...
A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
A MAN WITHOUT A COUNTRY. A curious article has been published in the &nbsp; &nbsp; Atlantic Monthly, giving dates, names of officials and vessels of war, as if intended to be taken as literal fact. It is a history of Philip Nolan, who is described as having been, in 1805, a lieutenant in the United States army, and who became implicated with Burr in &nbsp; some of his schemes of "treason." Nolan was tried &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; by court martial, found guilty, and, when asked &nbsp; if he had anything to say, why he had not been faithful to the United States he replied, "----- the United States! I wish I may never hear of the United Slates again." The court martial, it &nbsp; &nbsp; is said, took him at his word, and sentenced him to be henceforth a man without a country. The &nbsp; authorities at Washington approved the sentence, and, immediately after, Nolan was transported &nbsp; to a government ...
THE NOTORIOUS EDWARD BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
THE NOTORIOUS EDWARD BATHURST. MANY persons in Sydney and Queensland will &nbsp; recognise in the swindler whose deeds are ex- posed in the following account, a plausible scoundrel, who for several years carried on his &nbsp; nefarious schemes in New South and &nbsp; Queensland, and who was convicted and sen- tenced to imprisonment on more than one occa- sion while in Australia. At the Middlesezx Sessions on January 20, &nbsp; before the Assistant Judge, Edward Bathurst, &nbsp; &nbsp; forty, described in the calendar as a gentleman, &nbsp; was indicted for fraudulently obtaining by false pretences from Paul Akers the sum of £10, the &nbsp; moneys of William Cooper, with intent to de- fraud. There were other indictments against him charging him with fraudulently obtaining by false pretences the sum of £25 and £29 ; from John Stephen Veret the sum of £10, and from George Chettel the sum of £10, all with intent to defraud....
GAYNDAH. (FROM THE CORRESPONDENT OF THE MARY-BOROUGH CHRONICLE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
GAYNDAH. (FROM THE CORRESPONDENT OF THE MARY- BOROUGH CHRONICLE.) As I sit down to write this week's letter the sun shines brightly, and nature, clothed in her luxuriant garb of verdure, wears again the aspect of tranquility and peace. The river, although not yet fordable, is nearly down to its accustomed level, and in other respects the rusty appearance of Gayndah after the late storm is again bright as before. As I take up paper after paper, and see the disastrous effects, of the flood at other places, our little losses sink into insignificance. While feeling every sym- &nbsp; pathy for the losers in such other places, I can- &nbsp; not surpress a feeling akin to pride that Gayndah has stood the storm so well, and proved beyond &nbsp; a doubt that for safety from floods, she stands the foremost of the fore. Brisbane may rear her lofty head, and boast of the proud position of Capital, her population, and her wealth ; and Ipswich, the sensation emporium of th...

THE WRECK OF THE PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
THE WRECK OF THE PANAMA. We extract the following from the log-book of the chief mate of the Panama, kept by him after &nbsp; the departure of the Captain. The names of the party rescued are - W. P. Bourse, chief officer; James Burrell, cabin passenger ; Peter L. Nichol- son, purser; Richard Andrews, boatswain: W. &nbsp; Lambert, steward; Theodore Livingstone, James &nbsp; Galley, John H. Brown, John R. Mercer, and John Dowdney, seamen:- &nbsp; Wednesday, March 23. - While part of the men left under the first mate were getting up the &nbsp; wreck of the other boat the steward came down from the camp with the tidings that the natives &nbsp; were in the camp, plundering everything they could lay hands on: went up, and found about twelve natives in the camp and a great number &nbsp; on the surrounding hills; also several canoes. &nbsp; Held a conversation, and agreed to sheath the boat over with canvas, and start out befor...
WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR OT THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER SIR, —During my short sojourn here, nothing has surprised me more than that this city, having, I am told, 14,000 inhabitants, should &nbsp; be without gas and water supplies. It speaks but little in favor of the moral standing of any &nbsp; people who do not exert themselves to procure a liberal supply of pure water. In the com- &nbsp; &nbsp; paratively small town where I have resided for &nbsp; nearly four years past (having only 4000 in- habitants), there were both gas and water works—both private companies. In the water supply I felt a particular interest, as it was in tended to procure it by an Artesian well, but &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; after sinking a shaft some twenty feet, the water came in so fast, to a depth of under five feet, that an eight-horse power engine could not keep it clear, so that boring could not be resorted to, and it was not required. The practical part...
CORRESPONDENCE. GRANTS OF MUNICIPAL LAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
CORRESPONDENCE. GRANTS OF MUNICIPAL LAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir, - I respectfully ask permission to lay before the ratepayers of the city, through your &nbsp; &nbsp; columns, my reasons for introducing the motion which will be discussed by the municipal council this afternoon. It reads thus: "That this &nbsp; council protests against the granting or leasing by the government, of any land within the limits of the municipality, to either private individuals or public companies, as being con- trary to law, and in violation of the interests of the ratepayers." &nbsp; &nbsp; At a very early period of the municipal his- &nbsp; tory of the city, it became apparent that the municipal council was not regarded by the government with a friendly eye. Feelings of the nature of mutual antagonism and suspicion &nbsp; sprung quickly up, and seem now to have ac- quired considerable strength. This is very &nbsp; unfortunate, ...
