PUBLIC WORKS, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

PUBLIC WORKS, &c. In consequence of tho termination for the parliamentary year, and the necessity of obtaining the sanction of Parliament before any fresh works can bo commenced, we have but little to record rcspectiug public works. Tenders, however, have recently been called for thc erection of bridges over tho Conda- mine at Warwick and Ellangowan, and also over the Lockyer at Gatton. Tho particulars of these were given in our last: A surveyor has been despatched from Brisbane to survey a lino of road from Ipswich to the Burnett, and another?at present engaged in tho survey of some land at Nanango?has been instructed tb survey tho line thence to Brisbane via Gayndah aud the Glass Moun- tains.

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH   About six weeks since the Right Rev. Dr. Quinn, the Roman Catholic-Bishop of Bris- bane, six clergymen, and six Sisters of Mercy, arrived at Melbourne in the Donald McKay. On their arrival it was reported that the vessel   was infected with smallpox, and the whole of the passengers had to go into quarantine, although none of the Bishop's party were affected. Early in May the party were re-   leased, and after staying a few days in Mel- bourne, where Dr. Quinn officiated at the dedication of a church, four of the priests came on to Sydney, and three of them reached Brisbane by the Telegraph on the 19th April,   being the Revs. F. Hodeboug, F. Tissot and T. Renehan. Tho Rev. Dr. Cani, the Bishop's chaplain, waited in Sydney till after the arri- val of Dr. Quinn, and then came on to Bris- bane, arriving on the 4th instant. Dr. Quinn was warmly received by his co-religionists in Sydney, and had a complimentary a...

EPITOME TO DATE. From May 3rd, to May 13th. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

EPITOME TO DATE. From May 3rd, to May 13th. The farce enacted in the Legislative Assembly, on Tuesday last, will mark an epoch in the history of the first Parliament of Queensland. Shortly after the proceedings had been commenced on that day. Mr. Watts, tho member for Drayton and Toowoomba, walked up to the table and producing a copy, of that mornings Courier, and said that it contained an article, commenting on the constitution of the committee appointed to inquire into Native Police, couched in terms calculated to bring the house into contempt. He would therefore read the articles and, conclude with a motion that it was a breach of privilege. After reading the article and commenting on it as he proceeded, Mr. Watts went on to instruct the house, by reciting cases from May's Parliamentary Practice, in which persons guilty of a breach of the privileges of that " ancient and honorable house " had, from the years 1559 down to 1810, been con- fined in the Tower of London and Newgate, p...

Summary FOR ENGLAND PER "BENATES." POLITICAL. OPENING OF THE PARLIAMENTARY SESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

Summary FOR ENGLAND PER "BENARES." POLITICAL. Opening of the Parliamentary Session. The most prominent feature in the month's events has undoubtedly been the opening of the second session of the first Parliament of Queensland, which took place on the 30th of last month. The programme of the ceremonial was similar to that observed on previous occasions, the only difference being that it was rendered somewhat more attract- ive by the presence of a guard of honor, formed by the military and the Brisbane Volunteer Rifles. A large crowd of citizens gathered in Queen street to witness the pro- ceedings, the agreeable change from long continued rainy weather to bright sunshine being evidently too tempting to be resisted. His Excellency Sir George Bowen came down to the Legislative Chamber from Gov- ernment House under the escort of the mounted police, and a small body of the mounted rifles, and on his arrival at the entrance the troops presented arms, and the volunteer band struck up a tun...

THE CHAMPION RACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

THE CHAMPION RACE. In my last article on this subject, I particu- larly noticed the performances of Zoe, and her chance of carrying off the first Queens- land Prize of Thirteen Hundred Pounds. I will on this occasion take a peep at that famous little horse Ben Bolt, who is said to have won the astounding number of twenty eight races out of thirty-seven starts. Ben Bolt is a good, sound colored chesnut, of apparently plain pretensions at the first glance, but the more you look at him the better you like him; and when well studied, to the experienced eye, he presents every- thing requisite for strength and endurance, but seems to be too short for first-rate speed, and in spite of all his performances I feel satisfied Ben Bolt wants speed according to racing ideas. In the race he is about to run endurance is more required than speed, and here he will no doubt acquit himself credit- ably, but there is many an inferior horse which, in a mile race, would leave Ben as far behind him as Ben...

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. from April 16th to April 19th. -Tag arrival of tbe Telegraph at tbe Bar, with ' the chief newt af the English mail as received in Sydney per telegraph, created gome sensation this evening, and much interest was manifested as to tbe nature of the intelligence brought.

SMALL DEBTS COURT. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

SMALL DEBTS COURT. Before the Police Magistrate. Bowden v. Raleigh.—This case, it will be remembered, was remanded from last week, and involved the question of the vendor's power of re-sale in case of neglect or refusal on the part of the purchaser to take or pay for the goods. The vendor in this case was the plaintiff, an auctioneer, and the defendant, owing to a dispute about the bidding, refused to take the goods bought by him at an auc- tion. The plaintiff again put the goods up at defendant's risk, sold them for a less sum than that originally bid by defendant, and now sued defendant for the difference between the price originally bid at the first sale by defendant, and the price for which they were again sold after defendant's refusal to take them. The bench last week quoted a case, Ford v. Wills, tried before thc Sydney bench, which would seem to favour defendant's case. In that case, however, one of the parties to the suit was a broker, and not an auctioneer. The bench decid...

CENTRAL POLICE COURT. OWING to a press of Parliamentary and other matter we were compelled last week to omit our usual police report. The business of the Court was unimportant, consisting chiefly of offences against the laws of sobriety and order, which was dealt with in the ordinary manner. The following are the most notice- able ones before the Court during the week. On Tuesday R. McMillan, prosecuted by the mate of the Telegraph for broaching cargo, was sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment.—On Thursday, Jane Jones, charged with stealing twelve turkeys from Captain O'Connell, was sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment. Richard Pritchard, summoned by Mr. Murdoch, for cruelty to a goat, was fined 40s., or in default 14 days' imprisonment.   Monday.—Before the Police Magistrate, Andrew Thompson, charged with being drunk and disorderly, was cautioned and discharged, having been in confinement 36   hours.—William Long, for a similar offence, was fined 10s.—John Hugh...

MARYBOROUGH. (FROM OUR VERY OWN CORRESPONDENT. May 9, 1861     The municipal elections have passed over very quietly. The Aldermen elected being Messrs. Palmer; Eaton, Booker, Travis, Cleary, and How- ard. Mr. Palmer has since been elected Mayor, and Mr. Travis has resigned and paid the penalty inflicted by the act—viz., £25—in preference to acting as an alderman.       Immediately after the declaration of the poll on Monday, 29th ult., the successful candidates gave a luncheon to their friends and supporters, and in fact several of the unsuccessful candidates were also invited and present. The luncheon was given at the Crown and Anchor Inn, and, considering the shortness of the notice, was well got up. The alderman at the head of the poll was carried in triumph from the Court-house to the Inn, and was afterwards escorted home in like manner. The whole affair passed off well. Champagne flowed in abundance, a few speech...

IPSWICH. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MONDAY (YESTERDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 14 May 1861

IPSWICH. (from our own correspondent.) Monday (Yesterday.) So only one land order has as yet been taken up? Waiting for the chance of Coolies, eh ? Some of your readers might have seen a copy of the ' Wilts   and Gloucestershire Chronicle,' of February 2nd, and in it a letter from our townsman, Mr. Chubb. It appears to be the second letter received from him by that journal, and contains a very interesting and, on the whole, a very fair sketch of the state of affairs in Queensland. I think Mr. Chubb de-   serves the thanks of the community for setting practically this example. Communications through   the press, particularly through provincial newspa-   pers at home, are even a surer method of enlight- ening the English public as to what sort of a field for labour, &c., the colony offers than the de-   spatches of the Viceroy, or the burning eloquence of that great missionary of emigration, Mr. Jor- dan.
