Biteeul Bm?eS85g«'!CC. CHILD DROPPING.-The rather novel mis- demeanor, in Brisbane, of child desortion was perpetrated yesterday morning, between nine and eleven o'clock. A man employed in the hospital grounds, facing William-street, a little before 11 o'clock, heard the cries of an infant near the gate, and, on examination, found that they proceeded from a sack which had been placed insido the fence. On remov- ing the sack it was found to contain a fine, healthy malo infant, a few hours old, rolled in a piece of a woman's dress. The child had been washed and duo care talton of its first moments. The man who discovered the child, believes that it could not havo been long in the position whero found, as he had been near the spot on several occasions dur- ing the morning, and had heard no' noise, nor observed the sack. Tho particulars of this strange addition to the-inmates of the hospi- tal were communicated to the polico, and they aro now on the alert, trying to find a name and pedi...

Letter to the Editor. THE BRISBANE COMPANIES OF VOLUNTEERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 31 July 1861
fetter to tli« Eilitor. THE BRISBANE COMPANIES OF VOLUNTEERS SIR,-Some rumours have boen afloat of late respecting alleged disagreements botwoen the two companies of volunteers at Brisbane ; and as such an impression is undoubtedly calculated to injure tho movement, we must beg lenve, most emphatically, to deny the truth of such reports. The second company has received per- mission to adopt tho designation of Queens- land Free Rifles,-with a soperato organisa- tion and rules for internal guidance,-a step which met with the approval of his Excellency tho Governor, and tho Lioutonant-Colonol commanding ; but it is quite false to assert that there exists between the two corps any feeling save that of friendly rivalry and emulation. Should an emergency at any momont un- fortunately arise, wo feel confident that the corps which wo have the honor to command would bo found " sbouldor to shoulder." Wo have the honor to be, Sir,' Youl- most obedient servants, a?. VOKES DUDGEON, Captain No. 1...

THE ABORIGINES OB' AUSTRALIA. AN extremely interesting iccture was de- livered by the Hon. William Hull last evening, at the Kew Literary Institute. 'H'" ñtinject selected was "The Aborigines of Aiihtralia." The lecturer quoted largely from a pamphlet published by him in the year 1846, on the probable origin and an- tiquity,,of tho aboriginal natives of New South Wale'sj Mr. Hlill stated that the ma- jority of the observations wero the result ol his own personal experience and inquiry, hut that he was also indebted to the reports of the most enterprising and faithful of the early and recent exploréis of this country. Ile alluded to the affinity which existed be- tween the manners und Customs of the Aus- tralians ann the nnenht nalivps, of the eahtem wot Id, which iiliinity tended to iden- tify the descent of the aborigines from ihem. One fact was beyond doubt, that they weie very low in moral condition and intellectual power. They hail, it was true, words indi- cative of right and w...

Above this mass of oil, ?the gas or benzine rose in a cloud, for fifty or sixty feet. All the fires in the neighbor- hood were immediately extinguished, except- ing one 400 yards distauce. The fire from this ignited the floating gas, and in a mo- ment the whole air was in ro.iring flames. As soon as the gas took fire, the head of the jet of oil was in a furious blaze, and falling, like water from a fountain, over a space one hundred feet in diameter: each drop of oil carne down a bl'izing globe of boiling oil.
