INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 June 1864

IA3 TJSSCOZONZAZ CRICKET MATCH. TnE Intercolonial Cricket Match, between an eleven of New South AVales and twenty-two of Queensland, w-ns commenced yesterday, having been put off for two days in consequence of tho very un favorable state of the weather. The rain having ceased on Thursday night, and the great exertions which had been made by tho secretary mid members of the Queensland committee, giving promise of, at nil events, n dry wicket, it was arranged that the contending parties should meet nt the tryst ing'placo at noon yesterday. The morning broke rather unfavorably, and the appearance of the weather was not at all calcu- lated to inspiro the number of persons who were anxiously watching it with any grcnt amount of confidence ns to its continuing dry. How over, although some few slight showers fell before noon, thoy w-erc justly considered ns being insufficient to interféra materially with tho gamo, and between eleven and twelvo o'clock tho majority of tho players appeared o...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 June 1864

Dije Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, JUNE 4, 18G1. Mn' Blakiï.ney lins introduced a bill into the Assembly for which lie will bo thanked by the ninny, mid anathematized by the {aw. Ho seeks by his measure to lessen the duration of the Legislative As- sembly ; in other words, he sucks lo in- augurate the era of triennial parliaments in this colony. No doubt this ¡s a very improper move on the part of the lion, member when regarded from a squattcrinn stand-point, Mr. Maclean, for instance, who, oblivious of his own origin,"affects to despise tho opinions of those who are poorer than himself, will condemn the measure as insane, and wonder at the audacity of the member who brings it for- ward. Mr. "WiHN'HOi/r- the prodigious specimen ol' Dootian folly who sits for War- wick, in spite of the fact that his consti- tuents have repudiated him-will naturally despise the bill and ils mover, and may very probably bring forward an amendment, giving himself a' lease of his uncertain seat for...

COMMERCIAL.           Courier Office, Saturday Evening. Our dates from Sydney are to the 31st March. The following extracts are from our late files to hand per the Yarra Yarra : The several produce auctioneers held on Thursday their weekly sale of wool and sheep- skins. The wool season being now over, all the lots offered consisted of odd bales, the remnants of clips, the bulk of which have been sold or shipped, and a few lots of scoured wool. The attendance of buyers was good, and full prices were realised for the lots sold. Sheepskins were in request, and some lots brought higher rates. Business has been more active this week, and since the departure of the English mail there have been some large speculative transactions in rice and teas, both at auction and privately. We subjoin the latent report of our markets. Flour.-At the commencement of the week the market was flat, and buyers very cautious in their operations;...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.     (FROM OUR TELEGRAPHIC OORRESPONDENTS.) SYDNEY. June 4. Mr. North, the police magistrate, is dead. There has been a great flood on the Hunter River, causing considerable destruction of pro- perty. The maize crops are very much damaged. Railway communication is stopped. There has been a heavy gale along the coast. The war-steamer Salamander, bound for Cape York, has put in here. News has been received from Nelson to the 24th May.   The threatened attack on Wanganui was frustrated owing to some friendly natives inter- fering. They stopped the rebels at Ranuni, and a desperate fight ensued. Eighty of the latter and twelve of the former were killed. Among the latter was Brother Taloge, of the French mission. Great distress prevails at the Wakamamarina diggings. The miners are being swamped out, and are leaving in large numbers. The majority of the foreign consuls declined attending the ball in honor or her Majesty's birthday la...
