For the last few days the shop-window of Mr. Buxton, stationer, Queen-street, has been occupied with two testimonials which have been prepared for presentation to those gentlemen ; and, as specimens of ornate caligraphy, they rank very high. We are informed that upon the return of Mr. Justice Lutwyche from the Northern Circuit, ...

GLADSTONE. (FROM.OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 22 April 1864

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESONDENT.) April 19. A LAMENTABLE case of drowning occurred at the Diamantina cotton plantation, on Sunday, the 10th instant. It appears that the servants   of the proprietor noticing him to be absent an unusual time from home, made a casual search, and discovered his shoes to be in or near the boat moored in the Calliope river, which runs by   the estate. Two of them immediately hastened to Gladstone, to report that their master, D. Macmillan, was missing, and our police magis- trate, as soon as practicable, despatched the customs' boat, with our two district constables, with drags, &c., to find him, either in water or bush. But their search came to a melancholy termination about 7 or 8 o'clock on Monday night, when they found the body in a deep pool in the Calliope river, near to his late premises. The remains being in a very decomposed state, were there and then interred, the moon supply- ing the necessary light for h...

CORRESPONDENCE. THE DELIVERY OF LETTERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 22 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE.   THE DELIVERY OF LETTERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,–I dare say I am not alone in thinking some improvement might be made in delivering   letters at the Post-Office windows. The crowd- ing, crushing, pushing, and struggling among the inquirers, is really abominable ; and after having seen a better system in a foreign country   –California–I am really ashamed of my own countrymen for the low, vulgar selfishness dis-   played by them. Any one who has been at any of the Post-offices in California, on the arrival of   the mails, must know the order that is volunta-   rily attended to by the public, bears a very favor-     able comparison with that in Brisbane. Ladies especially, are not pushed outwards from the   window, as all the gentlemen, or, if you please,   the men, stand to one side if a lady goes for- ward to ask for ...

CAPT. KEEN AND THE DIAMANTINA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 22 April 1864

CAPT. KEEN AND THE DIAMANTINA.     TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,–In your shipping intelligence of to-day, I observed a paragraph containing a statement, coming, I suppose, from Captain Keen, to the effect that Captain Keen had piloted my vessel up the river, which statement is wholly without foundation. The facts aro as follows :–I rounded Cape Moreton at 2 a.m. on Wednes- day, having the English mails on board, and anxious to get up to town as early as possible, I signalled for a pilot, but finding there were no pilots at the station, I anchored until day- light. I then weighed and proceeded to Bris- bane, and when near the bar Captain Keen came off in his boat and asked me for a passage to Brisbane. He also told me that several of   the beacons had been washed away, and pointed out the remains of one which I myself observed had been recently washed away. I happened accidentally to mention that I had not been able to obtain a pil...

THE EDUCATION BOARD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 22 April 1864

THE EDUCATION HOARD. TO THE EDITOB OF TUE HRISBAXE COURIER. Sir,-I lately observed in ono of your issues an article referring to tho resignation of Colonel O'connell and myself as members of tho Board of General Education. As I havo now ceased to bo a member of tho Board, I am anxious that, so far as I am conccrnod, tho grounds -which I assume to havo been sufficient to justify me in resigning should bo clearly understood by thoso who aro interested hi education. The Education Act was assented to 7th Sep- tember, 1860. My connection with tho Board commenced in January, 1803. The Act under which I was appointed, and which I then ac- cepted as my text and my authority is entitled " An Act to provide for primary education in Queensland." I lake tho Act as I find it, und without admitting that it could not be improved, I think it is a good Act and suitable to our cir- cumstances, if administered with impartiality and without any unduo bias towards what aro distinctively culled the natio...

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. (FROM OUR TELEGRAPHIC CORRESPONDENTS.) SYDNEY. April 21. GARDINER, the bushranger, has been remanded until to-morrow. Parliament will be prorogued at noon to- morrow. The Appropriation Bill has been passed. An action has been commenced against the owners of the Wonga Wonga, steamer, for sink- ing the Viceroy. The Telegraph has sailed for Brisbane. MELBOURNE. The Diana has sailed for Brisbane. The final cricket match with the All-England Eleven was commenced this day. Although the steamer Queensland, from Rockhampton, arrived at the Brisbane wharf shortly after eight o'clock last evening, we were unable to obtain any newspapers from the Post- office. We regret this circumstance the more as the reports of several very important trials were contained in them. We have learned from private sources, that in the civil action for slander brought by Mr. Jardine, P.M., against Mr. Dalrymple, a verdict for £500 was given for the plaintiff, and that a warrant was ordered to is...
