THE LANCASHIRE CO-OPERATIVE COTTON COMPANY'S PLANTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE LANCASHIRE CO-OPERATIVE COTTON COMPANY'S PLANTATION. WE have lately received a sample of very fine cotton, the produce of the labour of the above company on the plan- tation at the Pimpama River, and also   several particulars in connection with the pro- gress of the company. There has of late been a desire evinced by a portion of the community to condemn the cultivation of cotton in Queens- land, on the ground that it will never become a payable product ; but we are not disposed to arrive at so hasty a conclusion.       We learn from a report furnished to us, and that from a reliable source, that the cotton pods are opening rapidly, and that on the Pimpama plantation about sixty pounds weight of cotton is being daily picked. So favourable has been the yield that it has been found necessary to erect a new shed for the storing of the cotton. There are now twenty-five acres planted, the   majority of which promises w...

SUGAR CULTIVATION IN QUEENSLAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

SUGAR CULTIVATION IN QUEENS- LAND. THE THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR,–The time has fully come for the people of Queensland to grow something different to that of cotton and bananas. There are plenty of other tropical plants that would thivee in this colony, far beyond tho cotton, or even the   bananas and pine apples. I will say, for in- stance, the "sugar cane," the guava, the ground nuts, the ginger, the mango, the arrowroot, the cocoa, the sweet potatoes, the yams, and many other things I could mention ; but the "sugar cane," more especially, and if the people of Queensland do not bestir themselves to do something different to what they have done in the agricultural line, why, this colony will be one of the worst places in the world,–     "Awake and see your error Queensland ;" go forth with a will and form companies with a   little capital and plenty of spirits, and let the rest of the colonies see that we are not qui...

THE TALGA[?] GOLD FIELDS. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE TALGAI GOLD FIELDS (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) THE vein on which the prospecting party at   the Talgai reef are working, has dipped consider- ably, and some heavy sinking has probably yet to be encountered before the main reef is reached. Several hundred pounds have been contributed   by the miners and the people of Warwick for the purpose of procuring a crushing machine ; its erection on the ground would give a fresh impetus to mining operations, and enable the parties who have quartz on the surface to obtain some return for the labor and capital already expended. Under the present circumstances, it is impossible to extract the gold without ma- chinery, except in the instance of the prospect- ing claim, which yields quartz so rich that a large portion of the metal may bo obtained by pounding the ore with an axe or hummer ; two pounds weight of gold were thus obtained, last week, from a bucketfull of selected pieces. The   number of digger...

SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

SHIPPING. IPSWICH STEAMER. —The Brisbane will leave the A. S. N. Company's wharf at 5 o'clock this morning The A. S. N. Company's steamer Telegraph will leave for Sydney at 3 o'clock this afternoon. The Government tug Brisbane took the Black Ball ship Prince Consort in tow yesterday, for the purpose of taking her to the quarantine station at Dunwich. Owing to the strong south-west wind blowing, the tug was compelled to leave the ship when not more than a mile from her original moorings, not having sufficient power to tow such large vessel in the teeth of the gale. The pas-   sengers on board the Prince Consort who were suf- fering from typhoid fever are reported to be con-   valescent. There are now two vessels from England over- due, namely—the Vernon, Captain Goldsmid, and the Excelsior, Captain Barton. The former sailed   from Plymouth on the 13th December, and conse- quently is 118 days out. The latter is 117 days out, having sailed from Po...

THE MELANESIAN MISSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE MELANESIAN MISSION. " A meeting was held in St. John's School house, on Friday afternoon, April 8. at half-past four o'clock, to hear the Right Rev. Bishop Patteson give an account of the mission in which he is engaged in the Islands of the Pacific lying to the north-east of Queensland. The chair was occupied by His Excellency the Governor, who was accompanied by Lady Bowen. There were a great many ladies and gentlemen present; in fact the room could not comfortably have accommodated a larger number. We noticed on the platform His Honor Chief Justice Cockle, the Hon. Colonel O'Connell, the Hon. R. G. W. Herbert, the Hon. T. De Lacy Moffatt, and other gentle- men. Prayer having been offered up by the Rev. Mr. Bliss, His Excellency rose and introduced Bishop Patteson to the meeting. He said that when he parted many years ago from his right re- verend friend on the banks of the Isis, he little thought he would meet him on the banks of the Brisbane. At a recent meeting of the Bible ...

COMMERCIAL. Courirr Olllee, Prldny Evening. Owixo to a variety of causes business lias been very quiot during the past mouth. Almost Imme- diately after the departure of the last mail for Europe we nero visited with the highest flood known for ninny years, and which suspentlod nil trade operations while it lusted. Floods nlso have prevailed over die whole of tho colony, and the losses of sheep und other stock through that cause have been vory heavy in some districts. Another effect lias been the obstruction offered to traillo, which' lins prevented produce from reaching tho ports for shipment. In town the losses through the dumage of goods by water havo not been so serious, as the river showed signs of rising some time before the flood nclually took place, and accordingly the merchant« having goods stored in warehouses at tho waterside mnde preparations for ¡t. Since the subiielence of d10 river business has continued quiet, though gradually improving as the roads to tho interior be...

TOTAL LOSS OF THE BARQUE PANAMA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

TOTAL LOSS OF THE BARQUE PANAMA. Among the passengers, from Gladstone, by the   Eagle steamer, which arrived here on Marich 29,   were Captain Habig and several of the     crew of the Amerlcan barque Panama, which was   wrecked on Frazer Island during the cyclone   which raged along the Northern coast on the 19th     of the same month. The following particulars res-   pectlng this unhappy occurrence were furnished to us by Mr. Montague E Brace, the coasting pilot ;- The Panama was an American registered barque of 414 tons register, and was owned in New York. She is somewhat remarkable as being the vessel which brought a large number of miners from the gold diggings in New Zealand to Keppel Bay, en       route for the Peak Downs. She arrived in Keppel Bay on 27th of February, and after landing her passengers left that port for New...

Summary FOR ENGLAND. POLITICAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

SUMMARY FOR ENGLAND. POLITICAL. THE electoral lists revision has been com-   pleted in nearly every district of the colony, and with general satisfaction at the large addi- tion of voters which the roll now includes. In Brisbane and the adjacent constituencies the increase of claimants for the franchise was ex- ceedingly large ; and, spite of an unworthy at- tempt on the part of paid agents in the squat- ting and ministerial interest, which was incon- tinently abandoned at the last moment, their voting power has been nearly doubled. For instance, in 1863, the number of voters in the four constituencies of North Brisbane, South Brisbane, Fortitude Valley, and East Moreton was only 2437. To these have been added, after deducting reductions by death and dis- qualification by change of residence, departure from the colony, or otherwise, 2299 new claimants who have established their right to the franchise. Such results are very gratifying, as showing that our new arrivals ar...

PUBLIC WORKS. Sixer, tho publication of our last Summary, we have to record the occurrence of a public calamity, which has had tho effect of delaying most materially the progress of many of the public works in tho colony. AA'e refer to the flood, which, from tho fact of its having been of a much greater extent than others experienced for many years past has done a proportionate amount of damage. \ As might bo expected tho buildings and other works in tho metropolis havo not suifercd to any great oxtc-nt. Up'tlio country, however, considerable damage has been done-buildings in course of erection have been entirely swept away, and many of the works on the various roads to,ihe interior which, previous to the floods wero beginning to devclope them- selves, havo boeill entirely destroyed. Newly erected cid vert s have disappeared altogether j and, as a consequence, lines of road, tho value of the improvements on which wits beginning to be recognised, have returned to their pristine state...

Seven members were present, and Mr. J. Gilfillan occupied the chair.   The Chairman sad he had received from the general government a copy of the contract between Mr Crosbie Ward and the Intercolonial Company for the Panama service, which he laid on the table for the use of members. He believed some little dissatisfaction had been expressed out of doors that   the Chamber had not taken some more active part since this was printed, but they could do nothing till it was definitely known whether the govern- ment proposed to endorse the contract or not. He   had not, therefore, called together any meeting, and did not recommend the Chamber to take any action at present. He also submitted the following correspondence ...
