The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. MONDAY, JULY 11, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 July 1864
SDöe Courier* PUBLISHED DAILY. MONDAY, JULYW, 18G1. Du. Samuel, Johnson 1ms said that tho greatest honst of a nation aro its authors, and if this be the case, the chief index to the civilization and enlightenment of a community is certainly the number of those establishments where youth acquires the mental training necessary to au acquaint- ance with these authors. This colony hitherto has not been dilatory in providing snell institutions. Besides ilie primary schools where the first clements aro taught to the young at ¡i small charge, within tlio power uf the poorest lu pay, (he Legisla- ture have provided for ti higher branch ol' education. There is perhaps no act ol' Mr. IIu.'iiiHHT's public career to which lie will hereafter look back with greater satis- faction than his introduction of the Gram- mar Schools' Act. The only institution as yet founded under the Act, viz., that at Ipswich^ lias met with an amount of success, as will be seen by the published reports, which ? must, h...

COFFEE-AND ITS VALUE IN CASES OF FEVER AND AGUE. LivxiEtrs erroneously supposed that- coffeo was first discovered in Arabia Felix. It has been ascertained (lint in Karen aud Cana, in tlio mountainous regions of Africa, south of Abys- sinia, nature first planted it. Hero, also, tlio art of making a beverage from its berries seems first lo hayo been discovered. Gomalodie, a learnod mufti of Aden, became acquainted w ith its x-irt ues on a journey to tlio opposito shoro of Africa ; on His return he in- troduced into tho dcrvises of His convent ns nn excellent means of keeping "thom awako during dovotional exercises. Tho examplo of theso Holy mon brought coffeo into vogue, and its use, spreading from town to town nnd from tribo to tribo, finnlly reached Mecca about tho end of the fifteenth century. There, in 1511, a council of theologians con- demned it, its being contrary to tlio law of Ma homot, on account of its intoxicating Hko wine, and sentenced tlio culprit who should bo found in...

TSE ENCOUNTER WITS MORGAN AND DEATH OF SERGEANT MAGINNITY. (From the Wynyard Times, June 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 July 1864
THE ENCOUNTER WITH MORGAN AND DEATH OF SERGEANT MA- GINNITY. (from the Wynyard Times, June 27.) It is our painful duty to record the death of Senior-sergeant David Maginnity, of Tumbe- rumba, who was, on Friday last, shot dead by tho notorious bushranger Morgan. It appears that early on Thursday, Sergeant Maginnity, accompanied by constable Church- ley, left Tumbarumba for Copabells, a distance of twenty miles. On their return next morn- ing, they encountered Morgan within five miles of Copabells, at about half-past ten o'clock. At this time Churchley was a little in advance of Maginnity, when the latter, seeing Morgan, can- tered up to Churchley, and hurriedly inquired of him who that was. Almost before receiving a reply, he rode smartly up to Morgan's side, Churchley being about fifteen or twenty yards to the rear. Morgan instantly fired at Magin- nity, whose horse thereupon rushed into the bush. At the same time, Morgan's horse took tho opposite direction, leaving Churchley on th...

THE SHIP LEGION OF HONOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 July 1864
THE SHIP LEGION OF HONOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,-The Legion of Honor has, at length, been made the subject of an inquiry, but which is carried on in such a manner as to make us &nbsp; &nbsp; poor Britishers believe that its sole object is to torture the witnesses, and victmise those who make complaints. We have had occasion to call at mercantile and other offices in town, and have met with such really kind and courteous treatment that we came to the conclusion that the whole colony were ready to help the new comer-but we were undeceived at the Immigra- tion office. Whatever welcome the colony will give, there you find none. When on boad the &nbsp; vessel we thought the commssioner would be ready to listen to any well grounded complaint about the ship 0r its management When the emigration oflicer came on board the vessel, 0r rather on to the poop -for we have not heard &nbsp; that he visited the main- deck, much less the 'tween-dec...
