THE IPSWICH HOSPITAL, AND BENEVOLENT ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 25 April 1862
THE IPSWIOCR BOSPITAL, Adn ~BE?BVOLENT AbSYLUM. THERE are few institutions connected with this town deserving of greater attention and support than the Hospital. It would appear, however, from the quarterly report of the Acting Committee, which .wp publish in another column, that the funds at the command of tlie ~Committee are likely to prove totally inDade itehfolr the requiremente' of the institu tion during the present year. Considering tbo great benefit which arises to the workid claeses from the establiashent of such institu tions, it would be .a great pity to see the Ipswich Hospital. compelled to curtail its usefulness for snt'o f funds. There, however, appearsto be no other pirospect at present; for with largely increasing demands upon it for accommodation there is no corresponding increase of its income. We cannot, however, charge the people of this town with a want of interest in the institution. They have in a majority of cases subscribed, and in many instances liberally,...
NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 25 April 1862
NEW SOUTH WALES. SocKurEG OcmUBexcE.--On Saturday morning last, fnformation was received in town, that on the day previous, a quarrel had occurred between Mr. Morris, sub-mail contractor, and anotber man, at Gannedah, the result of which was thattra. Morris, the wife of the mail contractor, neatly lost her life. From the particulars which we have been enabled to obtain, it appears that on Friday week a man named Suteliffe, residing ·at Gnnedah, and wiho had been in the employ of Morris, building a house, came to the residence of the latter a little the worse for liquor, and some cross words passed between Sutcliffe and Morris, which resulted in the former challenging the latter out to fight. This, it seems, Morris at first declined, as Sntcliffe was drunk, but as ha would not leave the place, and persisted in using abusive language, Morrss went outside with the intention of fighting him; but, on attempting to fight, Suteliffe fell down laughing, and on rising had in his hand an inst...

HIS EXCELLENCY COLONEL GORE BROWNE. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 25 April 1862
Em. EKOELLENOY COLONEs Gona BBOWNE.4 Although the usual interval between the appoint. inent of a colonial Governor to the administration 6f?liffairs and the issue of his commission has more than elapsed in the case of Colonel Gore Browne, His Excellency has not yet received his full com mienion as Governor. Fromletters to hand by tbe last mail, it is understdod thait His Excellency's administration of the Government of New Zealand, during which the unhappy Masori war originated, is at present the subjeot of investigation by the Imperial authorities. Under the cireumatances, GClonel Core Browne's appointment to the Viceroy. alty of Tasmania, on his removal from New ealand, was a remarkable proof of confidence on theb part of the Queen's Government. But the rigid laws of the public service probably require. that the commission of Governor-in.Chief of this island shall not be forwarded to His Excellency until circumstances allow it to be invested with the significance of a formal exone...

RELIaGIOUS CHANGES IN MADAGASCAB. (To the Editor 4f the Adelaide Obserwr) S?ir-I have just received from Madagascar, in the native language, trustworthy details of the great change lately brought about in that land of heathendom. With the help of your widely-circn. lated paper I ean 'now furnish the public with the main facts--ipsissima verba--as communicated to me in one letter Truly, Christians may herein say, the aim ofthe Lord bath awakened and put on strength," as in tile ancientdays, in the generations of old." " The Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy', that it can not hear." Before the present King Radama ascended the throne as Radama' the Second, many Christians since 1836, probably not less than fifty, had suffered martyrdom, some score of widows and orphans of Christians, dead or concealed, were lingering in extreme destitution, and many other believers of all ranks, who had hitherto eveded the lice, were lying hid and wandering about ...

Bpace will not permit us to do more in this issue than ?o affirm that the etperiment is' triumphantly successful, and to insert Mr. Hill's letter on the suject. We shall, honwever take an early opportunity for recurring to tie topic.

Some.astoniuhment was expressed by the latter at .he appearan~ of several members of the No. I Company on the ground, after their unanimoos repudiation of all participation with the Free Rifles in organising the match. On thewhole, the arrangements were satisfactory, and some good firing was made at the stated distances. Nothing occurred during the day to throw a damper on the proceedings. The military have not been pr? cising lately, and their scoring, therefore, reflected giat credit upon them. Lieutenant,D. H. Seymour, of the 12th, acted as umpire. Thersanges were200 and 400 yards, fire rounds at each distance. According to the published conditions,1 the firing at 200 yards was from the shoulder, and at400 from any position, at the option of the competitors. The firast prie (£...
