POSTAL IRREGULARITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 10 March 1864

POSTAL IBEEGULAEITIES. Sib, — Permit me, through the medium of your journal, to state the following facts relative to the Post office irregularities :— I expected two letters. of a very important nature from Cleveland, which ought to have arrived on Tuesday evening, st 6 o'clock, at the Post-office, Brisbane, but up to two e clock on Wednesday no mail came to band, as I learned on enquiry at the Post office. Surely the Postmaster - General must be awaro of this neglect, as this in stance is not the only one; for about three weeks ago the same thing happened. From what I have learned the Postmaster-General accepted a tender from the present mail contractor lor the snm of eight pounds less than the tender of Mr. Reynolds, who for merly held the contract for two years, and performed the duties satisfactorily to the public, not a cause of complaint existing, nor any charge being made agains him dnr ing that time. This is the man who ought to have been, retained in spite of the consi der...

JORROCKS AND THE TURF' CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 10 March 1864

JOBBO0KS AND THE TUBF CLUB. Sib, — In Tuesday.s North Aiutralian ap pears a letter signed ' Jorrocks,' censuring in no gentle terms, the members of the Brisbane Jockey dnb. for their incompe tency'or negligence. ' Jorrocks,' I presume, neans to aUiuln in the Oaeennlmd Tnrf Club, but, like many scribblers, is not very well informed on his subject. Now, Sir, with your permission, I will state for the information of ' Jorrocks ' and the public generally, a few facts which will, I think, remove from the members of the Club the odium of having inflicted ' serious injury on this city.' Last August, after a deal of trouble, the Queensland Turf Club was established ; many persons promised to join and give every assistance; still, at the public meet ing called by advertisement, so few persons attended that it was with difficulty a com mittee could be found ; however, this was managed, and then the committee at once proceed to work. Trustees were appointed, tenders f-ere called for fencing an...

CORRESPONDENCE. POLICE APPOINTMENTS [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 10 March 1864

OORKESPONDBtTOa POLICE APPOINTMEKTS. Sib,— It is an old saying, that what is common is not wonderful ; every day's pro aeedings of our noted and distinguished Ministry, each one exceeding the other in what any man of common intellect wonld call common humbug. The Parliament of Queensland enact laws, with the consent of alt concerned, to organise, regulate, and bring every branch of the public service into a more active and efficient condition ; but how are those laws administered by the Executive? Arrangements and appoint ments made by them, to carry out those laws, are not calculated to insure practical efficiency, and instil confidence into the mind of the public. The just claims for preferment in the public service of those employed in the different departments do not meet with a fair and impartial consi deration at their hands. I take for instance the Police Act, passed last session. Under present arrangements is that force likely to be as effective in the suppression of crime, ...

IPSWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 10 March 1864

IPSWICH. {F8f-II ODB OWH COBBESFOKDEXT.) Vebt serious consequences are now begin ning to be apprehended from the continu ance oftho wet weather, as no signs of im provement are apparent. The rain for the last two days has been incessant and harder than hitherto, and some wise men here pre dict a flood ; In fact every tiling looks as if wo should have one soon, for the river is bank high, — the Company's stores are com pletely submerged. — and the ferry Iionae will fa out of sight in about an hour. The Brcmer continues to rise very rapidly, and this may be accounted for In some measure by the rising of the Brisbane, the' current in which, t ad) told, is very strong, and the steamers being obliged to put on extra steam to enable them to get up. The np country mails ' were bronght up by the steamer Brisbane yesterday evening, amongst which I found my copies of the Worth Amtralian, making it very late in the day before I conld jjet them issned.

NOTES AND NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 10 March 1864

3STOT3ES AJSTP XTjBWS. Is the fluctuations of the Beal Estate mar ket incident to all new countries, it is per haps impossible to foretell the suburban direction which will pay the speculator, or become the important locality adjacent to the city. It will be remembered that about three yean ago, south Brisbane was all the rage, because then the first idea of a bridge was mooted. Property in the Valley de preciated, and speculators shrewdly shrugged their shoulders when a purchase in that locality was suggested ; subsequently, how ever, the bridge idea was abandoned, and the star of empire again took the direction of the Valley. Wise prophets and seers were they who predicted its depopulation and ruin. A gentleman at that time was offeied an extensive allotment of land with three four-roomed cottages, for the 6am of £250. bnt rejected the offer because he thought in m. year'e time it would not ba worth half the money. The same property is now valued at £2000. Again, when the old Ipsw...
