THE NAMES OF STREETS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 11 April 1864
THE NAMES OF STREETS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE COURIER. Sir,- I have thought it would be a very great convenience if the City Council would cause the names of the streets to be put on the different buildings at the crossings thereof; or better &nbsp; still when the gas-lamps are placed on the streets, those at the corners might have the names painted on the glass, as I have seen done in one large city. A further great convenience would be the numbering of the houses and shops, and, as far as possible, to prevent future alterations, when buildings are erected where there are none at present, the numbers might commence at the south ends of those streets running nearly north and south, and &nbsp; at the east end of those running nearly east and west, and a certain number, say 100 or 200, allotted to each block. For instance, in Queen-street, corner of Wharf street, at the Bank of Australasia, commence with No. 1, and at the next street north begin with No. 101 (or 201 if ne...

THE COURIER &nbsp; path PUBLISHED DAILY &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; MONDAY, APRIL 11, 1864 &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The rapid multiplication of public houses in various parts of the interior is a fact which suggests the advisability of in- terposing some counteracting influence for the benefit of the shepherd, hutkeeper, stockman, and others of the labouring classes who pursue their avocations in the bush. Several months ago we invited public attention, through these columns, to the desirability of devising some means for encouraging and promoting habits of thrift and frugality amongst the class referred to, and ,we then made a suggestion that branch savings' banks should be established throughout the country. Various difficul- ties were foreseen by persons who canvassed the scheme, and its feasibility was doubted, but we do not recollect that any better method was proposed by our critics. The " elevation of the working cla...

THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir, – I was at the late Fire about 4 o'clock, this morning, and with a few other gentlemen, assisted in doing all we could, to allay its progress, and I must here state, that, the invaluable services rendered us by the Water &nbsp; Police Inspector, and his men, also Sergeant Hawkes, and his men, are deserving of something &nbsp; more substantial than mere eulogestic praise, &nbsp; through a newspaper. There is no mistake, they worked bravely, and fearlessly, in most danger- ous positions, and to them, and them only, do I attribute the saving of considerable pro- perty, in Queen-street. I have seen a requisition &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; to the Mayor, calling a Public meeting, for a &nbsp; Water Supply &c., I hope at such meeting the services of the above named persons will be &nbsp; recognised suitably.

SOUTH BRISBANE SCHOOL OF ARTS. &nbsp; THE half-yearly general meeting of the mem- &nbsp; bers of the above institution was held last evening.

Hockings. &nbsp; THE CHAIRMAN having briefly announced the objects of the meeting, called upon the Secre- tary to read the following report :– &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Half-yearly report of the South Brisbane &nbsp; &nbsp; Mechanics' Institute, for the half-year ending &nbsp; &nbsp; March 31st, 1864 : "Your committee on preparing the half- yearly report, find their labors light in conse- quence of the period which has elapsed since the annual meeting, being unmarked by any particular interest affecting the prosperity of the &nbsp; institute.

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, ArillL 12, ISO I. Some few weeks ago a very interesting lecture was delivered in Sydney, by Dr. Steel, on "The Homes of the People."' The subject was treated in a homely but able manner, showing that the lecturer was thoroughly acquainted with the various phases of life which are to be found in all large cities. It is too often the case that the condition of the lower classes is un- known to any except the few philanthropists who devote a considerable amount of their time and means towards alleviating the sufferings of their poorer brethren. The evil is acknowledged to exist, but the remedy is not suggested or applied. In- deed, poverty with the wretchedness, disease, and filth, which are too often as- sociated with it, is looked upon by the majority as inevitable in a largely popu- lated city. That it will continue to exist there is no doubt, but it behoves the Government of every country to take pre- cautionary measures for divesting it of th...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE CASE OF PILOT DRING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
CORRESPONDENCE. THE CASE OF PILOT DRING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR,–I beg leave to enclose herewith a copy of petition to the Governor, and letter to the Treasurer, referring thereto with his answer ; also, certificate from Captain Newall, of the ship Star of England, showing that he does not blame me for the ship getting on shore, but Mr. Heath's buoys. After perusing these papers, sir, I think you will see the reason why the pilot service of this port is not sought after. I, a master mariner of 35 years service, with- out the first black mark on my certificate, can be dismissed from the pilot service, and thereby my character ruined without a trial, by a set of men who cannot possibly know anything of the matter ; for, as you have rightly observed, it is fourteen years since Captain Coley was at sea, and I am credibly informed that it's quite as long since Mr. Heath was there as an officer, and as he was never entrusted with the com- &nbsp; mand of a ship,...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. (FROM OUR TELEGRAPHIC CORRESPONDENTS.) SYDNEY. April 11. THE news of the fire at Brisbane has caused &nbsp; great excitement. &nbsp; The steamer James Paterson struck on a rock off the Solitaries, and as she was leaking &nbsp; badly, put into Grafton for the purpose of being repaired. &nbsp; Markets are quiet, in anticipation of the English mail. The Telegraph has left for Brisbane. MELBOURNE. Flour is quoted at a nominal price. IN consequence of the fire which occurred yesterday morning, the sixteen monthly meeting &nbsp; of the Queensland Building Society, advertised for last evening, was postponed till Wednesday &nbsp; evening. THE half-yearly meeting of the members of the South Brisbane School of Arts was held last evening in the hall of that institution. The half-yearly report of the committee, which was of a very satisfactory nature, was adopted, and two new committee-men were elected - Messrs. Benn and M'Intyre...

DISASTROUS FIRE IN QUEENSTREET. FOURTEEN SHOPS DESTROYED. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
nsw DISASTROUS FIRE IN QUEEN -STREET. &nbsp; &nbsp; FOURTEEN SHOPS DESTROYED. At an early hour yesterday morning Bris- bane was roused by the dreadful clangour of the fire alarm bell. The worst apprehensions &nbsp; that could have possessed the mind of the newly-awakened hearer, whose sympathies were doubtless quickened by the remembrance of recent public disaster, must have been realised when he beheld the evidence of the visitation which has succeeded with such fear- ful rapidity to the flood. From the middle of the city dense -volumes of smoke rose and ob- scured the sky, while a lurid glow overspread all beneath. Presently the surrounding heights were brilliantly illuminated as flames shot up- wards with startling fierceness, informing all observers that fire had gained the mastery in our very midst. It was between three and four o'clock when every street and bye-way was alive wth hurrying citizens of both sexes and all ages, directing their steps to the ...
