LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE UNION PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, WICKILAM TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

and LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE UNION PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, WICKHAM TERRACE. The interesting ceremony of laying the foun- dation stone of the Union Presbyterian Church   took place on Thursday last. Undeniably the site chosen for the sacred edifice is a very fine one, occupying the commanding rise at the junc- tion of Creek-street with Wickham Terrace.   Already the excavation for the foundation has   been well advanced, and a quantity of building materials is on the ground, evidencing the   energy with which operations are being prose-   cuted. Having had the pleasure of inspecting the design and plans, we may mention that the church is to be built in the style known as the     early English or pointed Gothic, which has been extensively adopted in the ecclesiastical archi- tecture of Scotland subsequent to the sixteenth century. The interior capacity of the church is provided for on a l...

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

PROFESSIONAL INACCURACIES. THE report of the proceedings of the Municipal Council at their meeting on Monday,April 4, was one which must have taken the citizens by surprise. It had been for some time understood that con- tracts had been taken upon a desigu ap- proved after long scrutiny, and a delibe- ration of nearly two years ; and that all that was wanting for the commencement of the works was the completion of some preliminaries to the monetary arrange- ments. But whatever was understood by the public was not so apprehended by a gentleman whoso name has already been too familiar to our readers Mr. Fitzgibbon, not satisfied with what he already has in hand, and the monstrous profits derivable from that transaction, thrusts himself before the Corporation, and with much wriggling and manoeu- vring manages to got a plan before the Mayor, and an estimate before the Coun-   cil. He accompunies his estimate by a letter more than ordinarily impertinent, even in him. If the ...

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 9. FINE weather has at length set in, so say   those who know a little of lunar influence. Like the breaking of the ice to the mariners of     the North, so is this opening of our roads to our   ships of the desert. Many wool teams have moved from their long camping grounds in and       about the township on their slow line of march ; however, we shall not have so many causes to grumble at their slowness now since we are well supplied with the main necessaries of bush life. Six drays from Maitland with flour, sale, & c., have just transferred their contents into the stores of our providers, and returning rejoicing ;   flour at £4 per bag at such a time as this was too good a bargain to let slip, so thought we,   and acted accordingly.     Our postman has not arrived yet, we cannot &...

THE QUARTER'S REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE QUARTER'S REVENUE. The publication of the Treasurer's quarterly return of the Revenue of the colony for the first three months of the current year has been looked forward to with much interest, and now that the document is before us we feel consider- ably relieved of the apprehension we had entertained of a deficiency. That there is no deficiency, but a substantial increase on the sum total of the receipts from all sources, is a matter upon which we may felicitate our fellow-colonists ; for, under the depressing influences of the past month, it would not be surpris- ing if there had been a falling off in the customs sufficient to have turned the scale against all the increase under the other heads of revenue. As it is, there is no room to doubt that the trade of the colony is in a healthy state and that her commercial relations with other countries are on a safe foot- ing. We are inclined to the belief, that but for the floods, and the conse- quent interruptions to traffic with ...

THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTI0N. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE TRANSPORTATION QUES-   TION.       A Despatch from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, on the subject of transportation to Australia, has just been laid before the Legislative Assem- bly of Victoria and published for gene- ral information. It was received by the last English mail, and bears date 26th January. We much appreciate the in- cidental advantages which accrue to the journalist from the circumstance of the Parliament of another colony being in session when ours is in recess, as thereby we are often-as in the present instance -placed in possession of important intelligence for which, otherwise, we should have to wait some weary months It may be presumed that the despatch in question is a circular from Downing street, a copy of which has been received by the Governor of each of the protesting colonies, in- cluding Queensland ; so that in directing attention to it now we anticipate a task which, if we attended upon of...

CORRESPONDENCE. GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR,–It is rumored as a fact, that the appoint- ment of Clerk of the Legislative Council, vacant by the (rumored) retirement of the present   occupant of that office is to be conferred on Mr. Victor Albert Drury. Now, Sir, this is the second occasion on which an attempt has been made t0 force that gentleman on the public. The first attempt was foiled by the timely interference of the Press ; and, it is with the hope that a like assistance may avail in this case that I now address you. In the first place I would beg to remark that parliamentary officers are, by the omission of their names (or rather offices) from the Civil Service Bill debarred from the annual increase of salary, and other advantages accruing to the officers therein recognised. Secondly,   The duties of parliamentary officers are of a special kind, for the true performance of which some training and practice may ...

CENTRAL POLICE COURT. FRIDAY, APRIL 15. Before the Police Magistrate. FURIOUS RIDING. – A charge preferred against Stanley Brown, of furiously riding through the   streets, broke down in consequence of nobody   being able to identify him. ILLEGAL DRIVING. – Peter Bain was charged with driving a horse and dray through the streets with reins that were not sufficiently strong to ensure a proper control over the horse. The owner of the dray, Mr. Fisher, and the driver, both pleaded ignorance of the existence of a statute providing a penalty for the offence which had been committed, and defendant was   discharged with a caution. ILLEGALLY DISCHARGING FIRE-ARMS. – John Todd was charged with having illegally fired a     gun in Gray-street, South Brisbane, and thereby endangered the lives of the inhabitants.

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

The Courier of the PUBLISHED DAILY   - tho SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1864   -»- - due We are inclined to look very favorably upon the present agitation for tlie protec- tion of the city from the ravages of fire. If the disaster of Monday last lead to the adoption of some intelligent and thoroughly practical measure of the nature intimated, it will not have been without good fruits. The existing circumstances of Brisbane demand that great care be taken by the committee of citizens and the Municipal Council-who are charged with the consi- deration of the whole subject-to ensure, above all things, the practicability of whatever they may determine upon in the interests of the public. It is very gratify- ing to witness, so far, the harmony of feeling that subsists between the com- mittee and the Council ; and we hope this will continue without change to the end. Even a corporation cannot pretend to a mo nopoly of wisdom, and we do not see that its   legis...

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

NORTHEKN SETTLEMENTS. TrtE rapid settlement of the north- eastern coast of this continent will rank high amongst the marvels of Australian history. It is oily forty years since Oxley entered tho Brisbane river, and if the occupation of tho country could be said to have commenced at that time, ive should have progressed wonderfully 'but it was not until 1840 that a real begin ning was mado by the entry of squattr-« upon the Downs, nor was it until l8-.* that free immigration to Brisbane, tho only settlement at that dato, was per- mitted. Tho abortive attempt to found a colony at Port Curtis in 184G, was tho Heit step towards the occupation of the coast, but it was not until five or bíx years afterwards that the era of settle- ment actually commenced there, and Maryborough was founded about tho same timo. The advance of the squat- ters into the district now known as the Leichhardt, rendered it necessary that another place of shipment for produce should be found farther north, and in 1...

THE QUEENSLAND ACCLIMATISATION SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE QUEENSLAND ACCLIMATISA- TION SOCIETY. An ordinary quarterly meeting of this society was held in the Town Hall on Thurs- day March 29–His Excellency Sir G. Bowen, the president of the society, being in the chair. Considering the inclemency of the weather, which prevented many of the     country members being present, there was a good attendance. Mr. L. A. BERNAYS, the hon. secretary, stated that the present meeting should have   been held nearly one month ago, but from sundry causes, of which the weather was not the least important, it had been necessary to defer it. The formal business of the meeting was confined to the appointment of two audi- tors for the present year, before the annual meeting was held in May next. The duties     of those gentlemen he might state would be a   little heavier than they were last year, but   not oppressively onerous. It was gratifying to know that, althoug...

NEWS OF THE MONTH. From March 12 to March 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

NEWS OF THE MONTH. From March 12 to March 19.   THE Surgeon-Superintendent of the ship Flying Cloud, George T. Sandiford, Esq , has been com-    mitted for trial on the charge of having given false information to the Government Health Officer, and thereby committing a breach of the Quarantine Regulations of the port of Brisbane. It came out in due course of the enquiry before the Water Police Court that the last victim of typhoid fever died on board on the 8th February,   whereas the prisoner officially reported that the last case occurred on the 11th of the preceding month. He has been enlarged on bail, himself in £200 and two sureties in £100 each. The Flying Cloud is now in quarantine. It is understood that proceedings against the officers of the ship have not yet terminated, Captain Keene having been summoned before the Court. The arrival of the English mail as telegraphed at Brisbane on Saturday last, and it was delivered per the Clarence ...

THE FLOODS. (From the Courier, March 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

THE FLOODS. (From tho Courier, March 22 ) The predictions of Lieutenant Saxby res- pecting the stale of the weather in various parts of the world have been verified in a most remarkable manner. His calculations are, we are informed, based partially on lunar influences and on the places whence the storms originate ; and from the accuracy with which he fixed the date of the floods now spreading destruction all over this colony, at a distance of over 16,000 miles from it, it would seem that his theory respecting the amount of rain fall in various countries is founded on sound principles. He said that on St. Patrick's day, or within twenty four hours after, that there would be severe floods in Austealia, and pointed to Queensland as a place which would be more particularly affected. Truly enough we find that within the time specified our river rose with extraordinary rapidity. On Friday last, the day after St. Patrick's day, the Bremer river, at Ipswich, commenced swelling at eight o'cl...

DISASTROUS FIRE IN QUEENSTREET. FOURTEEN SHOPS DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 April 1864

DISASTROUS FIRE IN QUEEN-   STREET.   FOURTEEN SHOPS DESTROYED.     At an early hour last Monday morning Bris- bane was roused by the dreadful clangour of the fire alarm bell. The worst apprehensions that could have possessed the mind of the newly-awakened hearer, whose sympathies were doubtless quickened by the remembrance of recent public disaster, must have been realised when he beheld the evidence of the visitation which has succeeded with such fear- ful rapidity to the flood. From the middle of the city dense volumes of smoke rose and ob- scured the sky, while a lurid glow overspread all beneath. Presently the surrounding heights were brilliantly illuminated as flames shot up- wards with startling fierceness, informing all observers that fire had gained the mastery in our very midst. It was between three and four o'clock when every street and bye-way was alive with hurrying citizens of both sexes and all ages, directing their ...
