CORRESPONDENCE. THE PREVENTION OF FIRE. To THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. THE PREVENTION OF FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR,-In reference to the providing of water     tanks for use in case of fire, I would suggest a plan I have seen adopted in two cities, viz , at the crossing of the streets. In the one case they were built of brick, in the other of wood. The brick ones were circular, with a dome top ; the wooden ones were flat on top, and the sides   were octagon. There was no hindrance to the traffic, as the tops were level with the streets. The depth was about twenty feet, and the diameter from twelve to fifteen. I thought the wooden ones the better of the two. There were four frames, octagon shape, and planted out- side. No floor was required. They were filled with water in the first instance, and the drain- age into them afterwards kept up the supply. There were two small lids on the top, and I presume they were the most inexpensive as well as the most convenient that could be d...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

NEW SOUTH WALES. By the Clarence steamer, which arrived last evening, we have received files from Sydney to the 14th instant. We take tho following ex- tracts from them :– BURGLARY.–On Sunday evening, tho 10th instant, the house occupied by Mr. James Cree, No. 74, South Head Road, was entered by a thief or thieves. When the family returned from Church they found every box and the bed- ding turned out and scattered about the floors in the different rooms and shop. On examina- tion it was found that nothing had been taken excepting a gold ring. It is supposed that the thieves were in search of money, but in this they were disappointed as Mr. Cree is sufficiently cautious to keep no more in his house than necessary for his immediate wants.–S. M. Herald. TATTERSALL's.–A meeting of the members was held yesterday evening, April 11th, at eight o'clock. The forthcoming races at Randwick were discussed, and a little betting took place. A few Calcutta sweeps were drawn on the Rand- wick Great...

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnet Argus, April 11th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnet Argus, April 11th.) There is one very nice building in Gayndah which is rapidly approaching completion, and that is the Catholic Chapel. We believe the   style of architecture is what is termed Doric– we are not sure ; and the budding itself is 26 feet by 60. When it is finished and after the return of the Rev. Father O'Donohou from     Brisbane, whence he intends proceeding shortly after he has visited the members of his church in this district, the grounds will be fenced in   and a bell provided. We forgot to mention   that the priest's residence is attached te the chapel. When contrasted with those of the various other religious persuasions of which our community is made up, the efforts of the Roman   Catholic portion are positively highly commen- datory. Their exertions are fitted to their pur- pose. Here, through their own singularly zealous perseverance they have within a ve...

RIFLE SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

RIFLE SHOOTING. ON Saturday last a sweepstakes took place between twelve members of the Volunteer Artillery corps, at the Butts, on the Green Hills, the distance being 200, 300, and 400 yards. The weather was very favorable for shooting, and there was a good attendance of spectators, considering that no notification had been made public of such an affair occurring. As will be seen by the annexed score, Lieut. Rider won the first prize, and Gunner Cowli-   shaw the second. The score which was courteously furnished to us by Sergeant Hawkes, was as follows :– 200 300 400 yards. yards. yards. TI. Lieut.

TOOWOOMBA AND DRAYTON. (From the Toowoomba Chronicle, April 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

TOOWOOMBA AND DRAYTON. (From the Toowoomba Chronicle, April 11.)   THE WEATHER.–We have had one or two sharp thunderstorms during the week. On Monday there was a heavy fall of rain for about half-an-hour, and just below Mr. O'Cock's, near           the road lately laid out as a continuation of Ruthven-street, a tree was struck by lightning       which took off the branches on one side, and   the water in the creek or swamp, which is rather   wide at this point, rose about six feet. ACCIDENT OWING TO TRAVELLING AFTER DARK.–On Saturday evening last a loaded bul- lock dray in attempting to cross the creek between   Toowoomba and the Alderley stores, fell over into the creek, killing the two bullocks attached     to the pole of the dray, and the dray was re-   maining in the same position, on Mo...

REPUDIATION OF THE PANAMA CONTRACT. (From the New Zealander, April 2.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

REPUDIATION OF THE PANAMA CONTRACT. (From the New Zealander, April 2.) Our readers will be as glad to hear as we are to announce it, that the New Zealand Govern- ment have declined to ratify the contract made by Mr. Crosbie Ward with the I. R. C. M. Com- pany. It was manifest that no other course lay be- fore them. The provisions of the contract entered into by Mr. Ward were so absurdly in- consistent with the general interests of Now Zealand, were so arranged as to afford Aus- tralia no encouragement to join with us in the expense, and the cost of carrying out the project would have been so large in proportion to the very doubtful benefit to be derived from it, that we do not see how, as custodians or the public purse and public interests, they could have done otherwise than they have done. We trust that the government will publish at the earliest possible date the whole of the docu- ments relating to this affair. The question is one of such vital importance to the interests of New...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

VICTORIA. WE have papers to the 7th instant from Mel- bourne. The following extracts are from the Argus :– That journal of Thursday says :– A sudden squall of most extraordinary violence visited Melbourne and its suburbs at about half-past three o'clock yesterday afternoon. Dense masses of cloud had been gathering for some hours, and the sky bore an unusually threaten- ing aspect just prior to the burst of the storm. The wind and the rain during the brief duration of the squall were of excessive violence ; the quantity of the latter speedily reducing the lower part of Elizabeth and Swanston-streets to the state of beds of torrents of flood water. As usual, many various accidents and incidents at- tended the attempts at crossing these streets on foot. A man ran a very narrow escape from   drowning at the lower end of Elizabeth-street, being carried off his legs and washed away by the flood. Had it not been for the assistance of some bystanders, who arrested his course, a...

LATEST NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

LATEST NEWS. The British Government have declared that the ship Tuscalooza was seized by the Federals, at the Cape of Good Hope, on insufficient grounds, and her release has been ordered. The Channel fleet has been ordered to return   to England. A British association, numbering many Peers and titled ladies, has been formed for the relief of sick and wounded Danish soliders. The Queen of Madagascar was crowned in the presence of forty thousand persons. The Poles have gained several successes over the Russian authorities in Poland, and antici- pate ultimate success. Two Russian officers, at Warsaw, had forcibly abducted a young Polish lady of great beauty. A general feeling of execration at the conduct of the Russian officers prevailed in Europe. The Countess of Elgin had arrived at Dover, from India. Mr. J. K. Yorke, a Conservative, had been re- turned for Tewkesbury, succeeding Lygon, who had been elected for West Worcestershire.

THE COURIER. PUBLISHED DAILY. MONDAY, APRIL 18, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

Wljt Conner* PUBLISHED DAILY. MONDAY, AFXIL l8, 186.1. Tur announcement that two members of the Board of Education have retired .from their connection willi that body, will nut probably cause much surprise. When the present Board was nominated, it was not hazarding much to foretell that dilli cttlties would arise. The known and imagined proclivities of its several members were» well considered, and the consequences of herding such a heterogeneous lot toge- ther were predicted. The Board which was so summarily and arbitrarily dis- missed by tho Government were sent about their business because . they uttered un- pleasant truths in ,a plain way, and couched their annual report in language which was held tobe derogatory to the dignity of a high church functionary. The Ministry then constituted themselves a Board, until it suited their purpose or their inclinai ion to appoint another; and hero we must offer a word of commenda- tion. When the present Board was brought into existence, car...
