INQUEST ON THE LATE FIBE. The inquest on the late fire, postponed from Wednesday, was resumed on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, at the Police Office. Sergeant Lang, recalled, deposed: The noise I first beard whilst going along the street, appeared to me to be caused l-y the striking or a match, or the cracking of a chimney class: I remained thm-o «nm. minutes, thinking perhaps a thief might be on Mr. Fegan's premises ; it was about fire minutes after I heard the noise that I saw the light throngh the shntters; the window through which tlie light was visible was the one next to Mr. rilidge's shop ; between tbc time when I heard tbe noise and saw the light I went up to the Bank of New South Wales and back ; I went for the purpose of getting the assistance of Constable Hart- I saw no one about at tile time near Mr. Fe gan s store ; I was on duty from nine o'clock at night, and I did not observe any light in Mr. I-egans store until about twenty-five minutes to four in the morning....

THE SAVINGS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

THE SAVINGS' BANK. By tlie kindness of Mr. Pbelan. the man aging Trustee of the Savings' Bank, we aro enabled to (.ublish the proceedings of that institution for the quarter just ended — tho fir*t quarter of 1861; together with a com parative statement of the like periods of tlie two preceding years. It is very gratifying to observe, that notwithstanding tlie falling off of immigration, tlie number of depositors in the Bank continue on the increases. This is decidedly the best criterion of the useful ness of the establishment, far the object to be served is not so much the care of Urge in dividual deposits from tbe working classes as the promotion of habits of thrift on the part of Urge numbers. We have on previous occasions expressed our opinions on the management of the Bank, and every addi tional return confirms tbese opinions. The Bank is well and carefully conducted, and those doing business with its officials are ready to admit ilimt -tltoy are tbe T-fgbt men to advance the in...

ABCHITECTURAL. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

ABCHITECTUBAL. The progress and increasing population of Brisbane are best evidenced to outward seeming by the extension of tlie city in an arcKitectural view. We have many pnblic we have tho cheering token* *Uo «r«-—t_ necessity and feasibility by the silent and unceasing growth of the populated limits of Brisbane, which prove that supplies ade quate to the wants of a large and increasing population can be no longer delayed. O f public buildings, we may mention the Town Hall, the new Military Barracks, the Tem perance Hall, the Roman Catholic Church, and the now Presbyterian Church, all of which have been commenced and will be quickly completed. At the same time, public offices, substantial warehouses, first-class shops, snd dwelling ( honses are springing up as if by magic, ra j diating daily, as it were, from the centre ) of the city.

TRIP OF THE SETTLER TO THE BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

TEIP OF THE SETTLEB TO THE BAY. Thursday, the 17th of March, the birth day nnnivcrsary of Ireland's patron saint, St. Patrick, was partly celebrated in Kris bane by an excursion to the bay. The Settler was chartered by Mr. O'Neill and Sergeant Hawkes for this purpose, and at abont balf-pa)t nine o'clock left Baffs wharf. Owing probably to the unfavorable indications of the weather in the morning, the steamer was nut so well patronised by that portion of tbe pleasure-seekinir public who might be expected to avail themselves of the opportunity. Tbe services of a band of musicians were secured, and dances were got op and taken part in by the excur sionists. It was found necessary to make a departure from the programme of the trip owing to the roughness of the sea iu the bay, and instead of proceeding to the Pine Bivcr, Captain Jackson took his vessel round the ships Flying Cluud — which en passan) we may remark, displayed from her main royalmast the significant yellow flag— Wausfell, a...

IPSWICH ST. PATRICK'S BANQUET. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

IPSWICH ST.PATBICK'S BANQUET. The 17th of March, a day on which every true Irishman throws aside the cants and tfiUs of business for recreation and pleasure, more especialy to join iu the festi vities iu commemoration of tbe patron Saint of the land of his birth, was observed in Ips wich with as much fervency and hearty good-will as if it bad been in the Irish me tropolis itself. Notices had been picvionsly posted, that the respective Banks would not he opened; many places of business closed at an earlier hour, and the arrival of visitors decked in their gala attire, betokened that a general holiday had been determined upon. Later in the day. notwithstanding the wretched state of the streets, a procession was formed and headed by a bagpipe, ac companied with a tambourine, (the latter sonnding as if the vellum had a rent in it), wended its way tUrongh the principal tho roughfares, considerably increasing its num bers on the route.

ST. PATRICK'S BANQUET AT TOOWOOMBA [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

ST. PATRICK'S BANQUET AT TOOWOOMBA. According to announcement 'the festival of Ireland's National Saint was celebrated here on the 17th instant, by a public dinner, iu the Hall of the Yonng'Men's Society, better known as the St Patrick's School. For days previously tbe principal chit chat of our townsfolk was the dinner, and as all the leading gentlemen of the locality in tended being present, every one looked for ward to a jovial meeting, and I am happy to say none were disappointed. Tbe spa cious building was well fitted up for the oc casion, and though we had not those recherches bonqnets which are cultivated so extensively in our green houses and par terres at home, and which spread such fra grance around, yet we bad gracefully wreathed festoons of colonial evergreens, and such sweet scented flowers, as our Queensland gardens afforded. The ricb appearance of tbe hall when en tering reminded one forcibly of those fairy pilac.-s which we read of in nursery tales. In the centre of ...

SATURDA r, APRIL 10. 16G*. We confess that we are not very hope ful of the prospects of the colony ; of of the benefits that are to ensue during the coming Session, from the action of Parliament. Looking at the interval that has elapsed Bince the last Session we see one uninterrupted series of the worst official abuses. Whether we tnlcrt the arrangement of the Fitzgibbon sur vey ; the thinly disguisued deception ?which stigmatized the letting of the railway contracts; the outrage on the rights of onr citizens in the matter of the water works ; the sale of the best agricultural lands in the colony to squatter supporters in direct -violation of the rights of the people of Warwick ; or the last neat little job of the Parlia mentary Honors Competition — we can not shut our eves to the fact that the whole force of patronage ; the whole profit of place is directed towards the purchase of tools who can be bought, and knaves who may be conciliated, aud the intimidation of those who are equa...
