THE PRIZE DESIGNS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 15 April 1864

THE PRIZE DESIGNS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir, I do myself the honor lo deny in globo the base imputations conveyed in your leader of this morning. I should not notice the matter through the medium of the Press, but that, my friends and enemies might think I had fallen to a most lamentable depth in the scale of morality. I would not have troubled myself about the Parliament Buildings competition at all if I had not heard it insinuated that " the government only wished lo buy other men's brains for me to use." As far as being appointed referee to the commissioners, your leader of this morning was the first intimation that either the commissioners,   the public, or I, had of it. I certainly feel surprised that the proprietor of any newspaper should pay any one to write things which the writer knew well were not only unjust, but untrue. I am, Sir, your obedient servant, CHARLES TIFFIN. Colonial Architect's Oflice, Brisbane, April 14.

CORRESPONDENCE. QUEENSLAND VOLUNTEER     ARTILLERY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir, -May I, without trespassing upon your valuable space, address a few remarks upon the subject of a paragraph in this morning's issue, having reference to the above corps, and reflecting       upon the conduct of some members of it; and   in doing so, I would also wish to bring one or two facts under the notice of those interested in the success of the Volunteer movement in this colony. I may here state that I am a volunteer a member of the artillery ; that I was not   at drill on Wednesday evening ; and that I was therefore,'not one of those who marched back to the barracks without the orders of the officer commanding. I do not wish for one moment to   support those members in their line of conduct. Let it speak for itself simply as an act of disobedience, and therefore a breach of the g...

SUPREME COURT. FRIDAY, APRIL 15. Before Chief Justice Cockle.   IN EQUITY. SMITH V. PICKERING AND ANOTHER. This was an application made by the plaintiff for leave to have the evidence of Alexander Shields admitted in this suit. Mr. PAUL appeared in support of the appli- cation, and Mr. BLAKENEY to oppose. It appeared from the affidavit of the plaintiff and his solicitor that the affidavits of Shields was received on or about the 26th March last, being two days beyond the time for closing the evidence, and that this delay had been occa- sioned by the floods in the interior, Shields being a resident on the Pioneer River. The defendants resisted, on the ground that the time for receiving the evidence hadd been ex- tended on the plaintiff's application for a period of six weeks, expiring on the 24th March last, and that no further time should be allowed.   His Honor reserved judgment until Monday next.

FARM AND GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

FARM AND GARDEN. The verification of Lieutenant Saxby's pre- dictions relative to the floods to be expected in the months of February and March of this year have pretty considerably damaged the calcula-   tions of our farming friends, as respects their anticipated profits from the autumn crops of potatoes, maize, &c. Those whose farms were situated upon the banks of the Brisbane, Bremer and its tributaries, unfortunately found them- selves on the morning of the 26th of March last minus crops, and in some instances, of homes ; thewhole having been swept away by the floods of the previous days. Painful as it is to have to make record of such wholesale disasters in our agricultural speculations, we have hope in the future, and as every dark cloud has a silver lining, so in this instance we have faith in the pluck and indomitableness of our farmers to make the homesteads again shine forth from amidst the wide-spread ruin, and stand forth once more as bright examples...
