ENGLISH NEWS. THE following voluminous telegraphic news is taken from the Empire of the 14th instant. London, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 April 1864

ENGLISH NEWS. THE following voluminous telegraphic news is taken from the Empire of the 14th instant.   London, February 26. The Australian December mails were de- livered, via Marseilles, on the 12th ; and via Southampton, on the 18th February. The Queen has returned to Windsor from Osborne. Her Majesty's health was said to be   unequal to the performance of state cere- monials. For this reason the Prince and Princess of Wales had held levees and drawing- rooms in her Majesty's name. The Princess of Wales had entirely recovered, after passing a fortnight, at St. Leonard's. The Prince and Princess returned to town on the 22nd of February. The infant Duke of Cornwall was in perfect health. The Christen- ing is to take place early in March. It is said that the King of Belgium, the Queen of Den- mark, and her eldest daughter will attend. Tho Queen had issued letters patent declar- ing thal all the children of the sons of English sovereigns are to have the titl...

TOWN SEWAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 19 April 1864

TOWN SEWAGE The following letter on this subject has re- cently been addressed to tho Editor of the Argus by Mr. Edward Wilson. It is applicable to this city : Sir,-Some time ago you published an article advocating the use of earth for deodorizing the most troublesome ingredients of town sewage. The subject of town sewage is one to which I have devoted very considerable attention, as in- volving at the same time the deterioration or improvement of a large portion of our lands, and the health and comfort, and even the lives, of that section of the community whose lot is cast in towns. In the course of examination into this con- fessedly difficult subject, I first visited the cele- brated establishment of Mr. Meehi, who is so persistent a foe to the waste of our town sewage and the poisoning of our rivers. 1 found a system apparently perfect, mid the finest crops I ever saw, the whole farm being irri- gated with liquid manure forced by a steam   engine through hydrants, p...

GOVERNMENT PATRONAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 19 April 1864

GOVERNMENT PATRONAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,–I wish to address a few lines to you relative to two letters that have appeared in your paper with regard to a certain supposed     dismissal of the Clerk of the Legislative Council, and a certain supposed replacing of that gentle-   man by an officer from the Civil Service. I wish, Sir, through the medium of your paper to point out to those gentlemen (I need only, per- haps, say gentleman, for the letter in your issue of to-day is so full of glaring absurdities as to     amount of work, &.c , that its external origin is palpable) who have troubled themselves to write to you on a matter that, after all, is simple hearsay and gossip, the great injury they do by     such a course of procedure to those whom, ap-   parently, they wish to serve. Just let them consider for a moment the very invidious posi- tion, w...

DESIGNS FOR THE PARLIAMENT HOUSES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,–I perceive in to-day's issue of the     Guardian an article reflecting on your remarks relative to the Parliament Buildings Commis- sioners and Mr. Tiffin. Although I will can- didly tell you that I think you were wrong in   those remarks, and that I but participate in the feelings of a great body of your readers, when I say that I trust you will recall them, as they are proved to be founded on a totally wrong impression, yet at the same time I am I confess much amused at the new view your contemporary seems to have taken of such matters. I should like to recall to the recollection of that immacu-   late editor the very peculiar line of conduct he   chose to adopt after the last Brisbane regatta. In the most unfair manner, and on a statement entirely ex parte, he deliberately accused the Committee of withholding the prizes, and even after he...

CORRESPONDENCE. QUEENSLAND VOLUNTEER ARTILLERY. TO THE EDITOR, OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 19 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. QUEENSLAND VOLUNTEER ARTILLERY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR, – Sergeant Hawkes is a very bad man indeed, at least so your correspondent "Volun-       teer" says. He assembles the corps, commands the attendance of the band, marches to the Valley by moonlight to the strains of military music, flourishes his "big stick," halts the corps       at public-houses to drink and smoke, makes   offensive puns upon the names of members, and uses pot-house language in imparting instruc-     tion. After this voluntary confession by one of themselves, I cannot but sympathise with the unfortunate corps in possessing such poor     officers as to be led captive in this way by their drill instructor. I think, Sir, that your corres- pondent must belong to that majority in the corps which are called gentlemen, and if he &nbs...

TOOWOOMBA.

Upwards of nino persons havo been committed for horse-stealing nlonc, and then Hiero is the murder case from the Condamine, besides the Callandoon mail afluir, the robbers of which, it is reported, hare been captured. Altogether, Judge Lutwyche will havo a busy week of it. The German Lutherans here are at daggers drawn with the Rev. Mr. Sheirmester, of your   city. It appears that about twelve months ago a young missionary named Angar was sent to Brisbane by tho Missionary Society of Ham- burg. He brought letters of credit to the Rev. Mr. Sheirmester, and that gentleman sent him to Toowoomba to officiate in the German Lutheran Church. Not being acquainted with English laws and customs, and one of his con- gregation having died shortly after his arrival here, Mr. Angar ...
