SUGAR CULTIVATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 20 April 1864
SUGAR CULTIVATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir,-I observed in your issue of the 26th ultimo, some remarks on the expense of cultiva- tion and manufacture of sugar and rum, by " West Indies," which he will find he has over- estimated. I have ploughed, harrowed, planted, sup- plied, and weeded four and a half acres for less than twenty pounds (£20). To drain efficiently on level land, and as above mentioned, the ex- pense per acre would not exceed seven pounds, in addition to the expense of clearing, stump- ing, burning, and fencing ; and, at a very low computation, say two tons per acre, would leave a very large margin for profit even at thirty pounds per ton. We should be able to manufacture sugar which would be worth forty pounds per ton. By inserting the above, you will oblige A PRACTICAL PLANTER.
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 20 April 1864
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 1864. Some very amusing changes were brought forth, yesterday, at the nomination. It would be wrong to regard them otherwise than as diverting incidents in the election ; for there is much reason for believing that the promoters of them were not half in earnest in playing their silly parts before the public. What can the electors think of the prattling pragmatist and his dull coadjutor who brought forward the new candidate ? Not that they were serious, surely; but, perhaps, that they were sill)'. It were mercy to the individual who undertook to act as Mr. PETRIE'S seconder to let him have the benefit of the doubt ; but the other, who assumed the office of his nomi- nator, is generally regarded as responsible for what he does, being not altogether so ignorant of the three R's-reading, 'riting, and 'rithmetic. For all this, we would not hold him accountable for aught he says or does in con- nection with political or civic affairs. Her...
CORRESPONDENCE. MR. TIFFIN AND "THE COURIER." TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 20 April 1864
CORRESPONDENCE. MR. TIFFIN AND "THE COURIER." TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. SIR,-In the Guardian of the 15th April, there appeared a letter from Mr. C. Tiffin, Colonial Architect ; and in a postoript, that gentleman says that I apologised to him for the appearance of the leader in the Courier of the preceding day. On seeing this postsript, I called on Mr. Tiffin, and he at once stated that it was written in a hurry and under great excitement ; and that he afterwards remembered that it gave a wrong impression, as I had only told him that I was PERSONALLY ignorant of tho contents of the article in question, though I accepted the responsibility of publishing it. He also frankly admitted that I had twice guarded myself by saying that even the admission of ignorance on my part was only allowable as a personal matter between us, in consequence of a conversation we had on the evening before, when I had said that I did not believe he had been guilty of any un- derhand work. Mr. Tif...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. (FROM OUR TELEGRAPHIC CORRESPONDENTS.) TOOWOOMBA. April 19. A PERSON named Dr. Robinson was arrested last night on the charge of obtaining one hun- dred horses under false representations. He drew a cheque for £300 on the Union Bank of Australia at Bathurst, but there is no bank of that name at that place. He also signed orders for £150 on Mr. James Adams, of Charlotte- place, Sydney, who has been proved since to be a myth. Robinson was examined to-day, and was re- manded for eight days for the production of all orders. At the licensing meeting all applications were granted. SYDNEY. The Auckland papers state that Colonel Leslie will probably be tried by a Court Martial for misconduct at Okarau.

M.KINLAY'S EXPEDITION. SUPPOSED DISCOVERY OF LEICHHARDTS REMAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 21 April 1864
McKINLAY'S EXPEDITION. &nbsp; &nbsp; SUPPOSED DISCOVERY OF LEICH- HARDTS REMAINS. In the Melbourne Argus of the 1st instant appears the subjoined contribution from W. Ho- race Greenfield, Assistant Secretary to the Royal Geographical Society, London. His hypothesis is worthy of attention, but we shall not attempt to pronounce upon its reliability :- "In the course of reading over the journal of Mr. McKinlay, narrating his heroic passage of the Australian continent from south to north, I have been much struck with the account he gives of the bodies he met with (October 15), at what he has fitly named Lake Massacre. On examin- &nbsp; ing his chart, I find he states that a native, him- self suspected of having borne a part in the out- rage, stated that a party of white men had been destroyed there, ' he did not know how many moons ago.' On turning up the soil one Euro- pean corpse was certainly discovered, which Mr. McKinlay, ignorant at that time of the actual ...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 21 April 1864
The Courier. &nbsp; PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1864. Young members of Parliament, like half-fledged juveniles who write for the public press, are apt to render themselves superlatively ridiculous while making their first effort. The older stagers listen to the labored sentences of the sucking orator with grimly smiling visages, and if the speaker should venture to crack the whip of satire, the object of his attack may ge- nerally receive it with perfect good humour. There is a warmth and earnestness about the "young man from the country" who "moves the address," for instance, which is usually refreshing to more steady-going people, and if he has not, at the close of his speech, rendered essential service to his party, he has at least afforded the House some amusement. As a case in point, we may recall Mr. WIENHOLT'S debut in the Assembly to the recollection of our readers. What could exceed the folly of the exhibition ? Bathos never readied a sublimer height, and W...
