COMMERCIAL. COURIER Office, Thursday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 24 June 1864
COMMGKCI'AL. CotJBiKB Office, Thursday evening. \ BY the City of Brisbane we are in receipt of Sydney papers to the 21st June, but they con- tain little of importance as regards commercial matters. The following is from Messrs. Hell man Brothers' Circular, dated San Francisco, April 4, 1864, and received by a mercantile firm at Auckland : " Dear Sir,-Wo «roto you tho 24th ultimo. The next day dry and cold weather continuing, which it was said would do away with the good effects of previous rains. Only 2000 sucks wheat could bo had in this city at 2ie per lb ; no sellers hero or in tho State. Since then wo havo had very heavy rains throughout the country, and although the market to-day is very unsettled, wo may quote wheat l-90e and 2c per lb ; barley, "¡c ; oats, 3c ; flour, 6 dollars and 6fc dollars for 196 lbs. We believe plenty rain has already fallon to secure very good crops, and that wheat will ero very long be at l-75c per lb, or lower. To execute English limits, it must como...

TESTIMONIAL TO MR. WILLIAM WILKES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 24 June 1864
TESTIMONIAL TO MR. WILLIAM WILKES. &nbsp; About twenty gentlemen, among whom were included many of the oldest colonists, met yes- terday afternoon at Mc'Adams' Sovreign Hotel, for the purpose of considering the best &nbsp; &nbsp; means of showing their recognition of the ser- vices rendered by Mr William Wilkes to the colony whilst editor of the Courier newspaper, more especially his efforts to obtain the separa- tion of Moreton Bay from New South Wales. Mr Thomas Dowse, who was elected to the chair, openened the business of the meeting by stating that the first intimation to him that such a meeting was to be held, had appeared through the press. He believed,however, that &nbsp; a few gentlemen had met together for the pur- pose of getting up a testimonial to their old friend and colonist, Mr Wilkes, and he was &nbsp; sure that those who had assembled that after- noon would not leave without taking some de- cided action towards evincing their ...

THE SHAKESPEARE TERCENTENARY. (From the Dailg Telegraph, April 23.) -DESTINY is, ,ufter all, a terrible democrat ¡ and Genius not _ much better-than a leveller.

Th Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 24 June 1864
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRlDAY, JUNE 24, 18694. SOME men are born to honors, others have honors thrust upon them—as often undeserved as merited ; while many, evi- dently desiring what come not to them by inheritance or as a slice of luck, "seek the "hubble reputation'' in regions where &nbsp; their achievements can be of no avail, because, to speak charitably, their efforts are misdirected. We have heard of heaven-born ministers and nature's nobles, but never believed in them any more than in ready-made legislators. PITT, young as he was when he entered public life, un- derstood the constitutional history and the laws of his country. The Mohican did not disdain to take a scalp, nor is the Maori king above committing acts shocking to humanity ; while our own aborigines are certainly not averse to adopting very questionable means for such animal gratideations as bodily comfort and personal adornment. The nobleness of their goings on must be very doubtful, however natural...
