LEYBURN. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

LEYBURN. FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. April 10. THE mail robbers are, I believe, stilt at large. They have been traced as far as Mr. Hethering- ton's station, on Frazer's Creek, where they visited a sheep station, and having partaken of the shepherd's hospitality, robbed him of all the money he possessed—£1. They had previously abandoned the mail horses, which were found by a blackfellow on the Warroo Run, much the worse for their circuitous and unwonted excur- sion.   A Court of Petty Sessions was held here to-day ; Mr. Hanmer, of Talgai, was the only magistrate present, Messrs. Owen and Whit- church being unable to attend ; the latter gen- tleman is, I believe, about to visit Europe. It seems strange that the government have not yet appointed a police magistrate for the united dis- tricts of Warwick and Leyburn ; and a gold commissioner for the Talgai reef. It surely cannot be that there is a scarcity of competent persons willing to accept the duties and salary of P.M....

CORRESPONDENCE. THE DIAMANTINA AND CAPTAIN KEEN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. THE DIAMANTINA AND CAPTAIN KEEN. TO TIIE EDITOR OF THE BBISBANE COURIER. SIR,–In your columns of to-day I observed a letter containing a statement coming, as I suppose, by the signature, from Mr. J. M'Diar- mid, master of the steam ship Diamantina, and reflecting on my conduct, both as a seaman and as a gentleman, I beg to contradict that state- ment in every respect in which it reflects upon mc, and to state that I did not try any argu- ments to induce Mr. M'Diarmid to complain of the non-attendance of pilots. I did not hint that he "might mention to the reporters the   assistance he had been to me in coming up the river." Nor did I make any statement to your reporter to induce him to publish any statement in the next morning's paper. Allow me now, Sir, to state my version of the facts–The Dia- mantina came up the harbor about the time stated and wishing to go to Brisbane, I went off in my boat from my ship, and asked permission to go up on board her.

THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

THE ELECTION. The following verse, written we presume by some candidate for Woogaroo, was found in our editorial box. It was evidently to be made pub- lic yesterday :– Wild flies the chaff–so let it fly, Its a "Brookes" that leads the van ;   Big with the fate of pompous " I," Behold the little man.     Just seo him with his iron-goose quill, A long address docs write, To prove that all the candidates are wrong– And he, Will. Brookes is right. J. S.

NORTH BRISBANE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

NORTH BRISBANE ELECTION. The polling for the election of a member to fill the vacancy in the above electorate, took place yesterday : and, although much excite- ment was exhibited not the slightest sign of disorder was apparent. The poll closed at four o'clock, and shortly   after five the Returning Officeri declared the result of the poll to be as follows :- N. Brisbane. Kangaroo P. Total. Brookes...... 424.. 10.. 434 Warry........ 273.. 23.. 296 Petrie........2.. 0.. 2   He (the Returning Officer) therefore declared Mr. William Brookes to be duly elected as mem-   ber for North Brisbane.       Mr. BROOKES briefly thanked the electors for the position on the poll in which tbey had placed   him, and expresad his wish that they might never regret their choice. he considered that, in accepting the honor, he had also to accept the   vast responsibility attaching to it, and could &...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

The Courier PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 1864. THE result of the polling, which was   semi-oflicially declared yesterday afternoon, must have been most gratifying to those who have the future welfare of the colony at heart. Despite all the exertions put forth by the Government; notwithstand- ing the forces they advanced to the front, from the Treasury officers down to the employees at the Government Printing Office, they were foiled in their attempt to defeat a gentleman who, having previously expressed his antagonism to them in the most manly and open manner, has unmistakeably proved the un- popularity of the Government, as regards Brisbane. We confess that the result of the election was anticipated by us. We knew full well that although a Colonial Secretary, an Attorney-General, and other members of an ill-constructed cabinet might exercise, for the first time, their right of voting in favor of a man, experience of whom had told them could be easily made one o...

COMMERCIAL. THE BRISBANE COURIER OFFICE, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864

COMMERCIAL. THE BRISBANE COURIER OFFICE, Friday Evening. THE arrival of the Diamantina on Wednes- day, with the Queensland portion of the Eng- lish mails per the Madras, has been the event of the week. The advices by her, however, only confirm what has been stated in our telegrams. The news does not show any material alteration in the London markets for Austiiihnn produce.   There has not been much activity in the wool     market, but prices remain firm. In leather,   skins, horns, and bones a fair amount of trade was doing, and the selling rates were satisfac- tory. The enquiry for tallow however was lan- guid, and prices have not improved since the departure of the January mail.       Business has been more animated during last week than for some time past, but we have not heard of any material alterations in the markets,         &n...
