MARYBOROUGH [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 9 April 1864
MARYBOROUGH. (From tiie M. Chronicle, April 7.) 1 lie captain or the Prince Consort reported to filr. Sheridan, on going on board that vessel last Friday, that a number of his able-bodied seamen had refused to obey lawful commands, and were then in a state of mutiny. Mr. Sheridan, acting as Water Police Magistrate, having summoned the men before him, and asked them if they wonld return to their duty, eighteen of them refused; they were therefore taken into custody, and placed on board the CoDaroy lor Maryborough. On the passage up tiie river three of them leaped overboard, and being capital divers and swimmers they soon effected a landing, and have not been heard of since. The fifteen brought on to Maryborough were immediately takctl to the Police-conrt, and tho offence being dis tinctly proved by the evidence of tbe captain, they were committed to Brisbane gaol for two months. All the time the prisoners were in dock — strong in numbers, and some of them half mad with liquor — they ...
ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 9 April 1864
BOCKHAMPTOS. We have Northern news in the E. Bulletin to the -3th instant. The feeling against the present Ministry seems to be rampant as ever on the banks of the Fitzroy ; indeed, it is a significant fact that every journal in this colony— our friends the Guardian and Q. Tinas, of course, execpted — is loud in iu its complaints against the Herbert cabal on the score of local grievances, and trlarin' abuses, and shameless disregard for the in terests .if the people. It is not easy to comprehend the inducement which satisfies four men to persist in holding office, while from all quarters a str-rm of reprobation is hnrled at their heads. There must be assuredly some potent spell, some foul charm of the Black Art, in their ministerial crumb, thus to render this precious quartette so totally blind to the real ignominy of tucir position. In their hands. Constitutional Government is becoming a decided farce. Popular indignation in the North thus fiuds vent in the leadiug columns of our H...

IPSWICH Wednesday morning [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 9 April 1864
IPSWICH. fFBOM OOB OWN COKBESP0NDENT.1 Wednesday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Mauley in the characters of Lord and Lady Dundreary, made their appearance at the School of Arts on the evening of Monday last. The folks in Ipswich must have forgotten that snch an entertainment was to bo given, or I have no doubt a better andiencc would have been present : the showers daring the later part of the day, may have prevented manv from attending. The attendance last evening was wretched, and must, indeed, have damped the feelings of Mr. and Mrs. Manlcy. The affair, I may say, was dreary enough. Mr. Stanley's song of the ' Old Muleteer,' in character, was well rendered and impressive. The humorous song of ' The Young Man from the Country,' snog by Mrs. Manley in the farce of *? Nothing to Ware,' created much merriment and applause. I cannot conclude without a word of praise in reference to the 1 rilliant piano-forte playing of Mr. Strathan, who treated the audience during the intervals with numerous s...

Advcrtticr of 23rd March says : — Until a few days since, our quotations in flour ware rnling, but advices from other colonies have caused an advance of £1 per ton, quotations being now £22. The demand is now merely sufficient for local con sumption, consntners nut caring to aperate at the present high rates. In wheat there is a rise proportionate to that in flour, quota tions being now from 8s Gd to 9s. Of oats there is a good supply, but (hey are dull of sale ; quotations are merely nouiin.il, at from 3s to 3s €3. lu barley there is very little doing at present.

Chronicle. will be better understood when our readers un derstand that a petty system of persecution has been adopted by the Ministry of the sister colony towards the newspaper press of New South Wales, which has been most derogatory to the former as representatives of an enlightened people, and somewhat cm barrasing to the latter, who. however pos sess the independent means of redressing their own grievances. The paragraph has also a borne interest, a -uociatcd, as it is with a late Queensland Journal.— ' The Advocate (Grafton paper) lias been the first to suc cumb to the force of the Government screw, it having ceased to exist.
