VICE ADMIRALTY COURT. Saturday, JULY 2. BEFORE Chief Justice Cockle. IN RE SHIP VERNON. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 July 1864

VICE ADMIRALTY COURT. SATURDAY, JULY 2. BEFORE Chief Justice Cockle. IN RE SHIP VERNON. The pleadings and the affidavits having been read by the REGISTRAR. The ATTORNEY GENERAL stated that he had   a preliminary objection on behalf of the owners of the cargo. Mr. Lilley, who appeared for the promoters, said that the ship and freight must have a de-   cree against them ; and that it might be conve- nient if the Attorney General would state his   objection at once as to the cargo. The ATTORNEY-GENERAL expressed himself   willing to do so, and said that the promoters had not proved or sworn to the endorsements on the bond. Mr. LILLEY, in reply, said that the endorse-   ments had not been denied, and that the law required that the consignees should state the whole of then defence in their answer, and any   blame they might think imputable to their op- ponent. He quoted Coote's " Admiralty Prac- tice," Pritchar...

CONDAMINE. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. June 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 July 1864

CONDAMINE   (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Juno 25. After the gaities of the season, our town has once more assumed a business-like appearance. During the last week our newly appointed sheriff's bailiff arrived, and, from all appear-   ances, is well up to his work. It is to be regretted that we are so much neglected by the government, the district being one of vast importance, deriving as they do nearly one-third of the revenue from it. the   greatest drawback being the want of the bridge, which is felt by all to the west of the river. In fact, at the present time it is almost at a stand- still-one of the overseers " sacked," another scudding up and down between here and Dalby, the men striking because they get no pay, and the climax will be, when it is finished the first flood will wash it away. A court was held here on Thursday before R. K. Wilson, Esq., J.P. A man of the name of Park was remanded to Ipswich, to be dealt with by that bench, f...

WARWICK. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 July 1864

      WARWICK. A public meeting was held in the Town Hall, Warwick, on the evening of Monday, the 20th June, for the purpose of taking steps to secure an extension of the Agricultural Reserve the notice said a, " town commonage ") for the people of Warwick. it could not have been generally known to the inhabitants, for the notice convening the meeting was dated only one day previous to its being held, and only one notice, as far as we are aware, posted in the town. There wero not more than twenty-five or thirty persons present. The Mayor (Mr. Marshall) took the chair, and stated thoe objects of the meeting, remarking that, he considered certain land to which he re- ferred was a commonage-not a reserve. He trusted the reserve would be enlarged, and that the people would join hand in hand for the pur- pose of securing it. Mr. Weinbolt had de- ceived them; he promised to obtain an exten- sion of th reserve, and he had not carried out his promise M...

GOONDIWINDI. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. June 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 July 1864

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) June 26. For the first time during my term of corre- spondence, I am compelled to make use of the Englishmen's safety valve grumbling. Of late the irregularity of affairs, to use no stronger term, connected with the postal department, has made itself manifest by unaccountable and and frequent losses of money letters, retarded deliveries, painful and injurious delays, making the transmission through the post-which should he another name for certain and speedy transit a thing of doubt and anxiety. A publican of this town had lately the misfortune to enclose three cheques in a registered letter to his firm in Brisbane, for which, after a delay of four weeks, he received an acknowledgment of two only, the third evidently having been extracted. Later still, the plans for the schoolhouse here, bearing the Brisbane postmark of the 11th, arrived by yesterday's mail, too late to be available, as the time for acceptance of tenders was limited to the ...

  GLADSTONE.   ( FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) June 28.     Most encouraging news is now to hand of a fresh discovery of the precious metal, on a more extended scale than usual about five miles from   the Calliope workings, toward and very near Riverstone the station of Colonel O Connell, and which, by being on the watershed of the Boyne, will necessitate a further proclamation My informant says, that on this long narrow flat there were, when he left, about one hun dred men at work, getting from one to five dwts to the dish, and that he calculated on that flat alone there was room for a thousand   diggers. The sinking is from twelve to fifteen feet, andd eighteen inches of wash dirt It appears that some of the returned "Peak Downers' are the discoverers and from that locality these diggings are now re ceiving by each steamer large additions inde pendent of those that come from the southward A gentleman at Rockh...

Sir-A Letter appeared in Saturday's Guar-    dian signed Ignoramus disputing, my state   ment as to the members and the, occupations of the brigade formed at the distillery of F. Hodges, Esq., Lambeth, London. As this gen- tleman represents himself to be so well acquainted with this brigade doubtless the names that I here mention will be familiar to him and which   are totally unconnected with the works of Mr       Hodges. I will first mention Mr Lewis M.     Becker, an artist, acting as lieutenant and in   most cases taking the entire management of the       brigade, also Mr, King, a civil engineer.The   brigade comprises six members. Perhaps I     ought to have been more particular in this one instance as I admit that the rem...
