THE EXECUTION OF THE "FLOWERY LAND" PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864
THE EXECUTION OF THE "FLOWER Y &nbsp; LAND" PIRATES. The Daily Telegraph of February 23rd con- tains tha following remarks on tha "Flowery Land" piracy: Yesterday, in the chill morning air, tha hang- man finished the story of the Flowery Land, with the sharp slamming of tha drop and the sudden agony of dislocated neck-bones and choked lungs. The five pirates hava died that horrible death by which it is still believed evil natures are terrified from crime, and society edilied as to the sacredness of human life. We wish that we could think so in view of that surging, blasphemous, excited crowd that treated the occasion as a drama of the liveliest sensa- tional kind-with nothing to pay for a place and homicide, not fictitious, but natural and authentic, perpetrated before their eyes. In grimy, haggard thousands, the thieves and pros- titutes of London and the suburbs gathered about the foot of the big gallows, jamming and crushing each other for a share of the spectacle. They h...
THE EXCELSIOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864
THE EXCELSIOR. THIS vessel left London Docks on the 29th of &nbsp; November and cleared the Lizard Point on the &nbsp; 19th of March, having encountered very heavy &nbsp; gales fiom the westward in working down the English Channel. During the middle portion &nbsp; of the passage, she had moderate and fine weather, and on the 5th of January she put into Port Prayo, in the island of St Jago, belonging to the Cape Verde group, to repair the pumps which were out of order. On the 18th of the same mouth she resumed her passage but subsequently she touched at the Island of Tristan de Acunha on tho 17th February, to obtain a supply of water. Thence to the mer- diam of the Cape of Good Hope she met with strong westerly breezes and fine weather. In running her easting while between the meridian &nbsp; of the Cape and that of the Mauritius in lati- tudu 41 degrees south, she fell in with three cyclones, all of which travelled in an easterly direction.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 23 April 1864
NEWS OF THE WEEK. Friday Evening. THE election for North Brisbane is the prin- cipal topic of the week. On Tuesday the nom- &nbsp; nation of candidates took place and Messrs. W. Brookes, T. S. Warry and J. Petrie were duly proposed and seconded. A Mr. Paul, who had been addressing the electors for some days pre- viously, withdrew at the eleventh hour, sagaci- ously perceiving that he had no chance against &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; men better known, and, perhaps, more worthy &nbsp; &nbsp; of trust than himself - what influence he pre- sumed to have he transferred to Mr. Warry. The expectation that Mr J Gore Jones was to be put in nomination was not realized, his friends lacking confidence in his ability to secure &nbsp; the favour of the constituency. It was plain that whoever might be returncd for the vacant seat late occupied by r.i George Raff, would be no improvement upon our late es- &nbsp; teemed member. The day succeed...

COMMERCIAL. BRISBANE COURIER Office, Monday morning. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 April 1864
COMMERCIAL BRISBANE COURIER Office. Monday Morning. The Telegraph arrived yesterday, bringing &nbsp; &nbsp; files to the 21st instant from Sydne. The S. M. Herald says :- By the Madras we have &nbsp; our usual tobacco advices. From London to Melbourne the amount shipped was 69,642 lbs. ; &nbsp; &nbsp; and to Sydney, 96,420 lbs., including leaf and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; all kinds manufactured. The only vessels re- &nbsp; ported from the States were the Francis Hilliard and Georgina for Melbourne. Bremner &nbsp; &nbsp; and Tell say the proposed tax in the States has caused a good deal of talk, has not affected the &nbsp; London market, and judging from the strong &nbsp; &nbsp; opposition in the New York trade they have an &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; opinion that some tax will be imposed. Various &nbsp; conjectures are afloat as to the n...

Prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was undefended. Mrs. Mathieson deposed that prisoner came to her husband's house on Monday last, at South Brisbane, about some washing, and whilst he was there a man came in and asked what o'clock it was ; she pulled out the watch, and told him the hour ; they both left, and she went to draw some water; when she returned she missed the watch.

CORRESPONDENCE. CAPTAIN KEEN AND THE STEAMER DIAMANTINA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 April 1864
CORRESPONDENCE. CAPTAIN KEEN AND THE STEAMER &nbsp; &nbsp; DIAMANTINA. &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. &nbsp; Sir,—In your issue of to-day I observe a letter from Captain Keen, which by its tenor, he wishes to infer Captain M'Diarmid did not know anything of the Brisbane River, in the last pas- sage up of the Diamantina. Not wishing to detract from Captain Keen's local knowledge I am of opinion that Captain M'Diarmid must know more about it than Cap- tain Keen is inclined to give him credit, as he has to my knowledge been in charge of the com- pany's steamer three times in and out. As to the assertion, " Captain M'Diarmid trying to save certain exemption dues," Captain Keen's presence on board would not in any way &nbsp; interfere with the harbor authorities in collecting them. The inuendo thrown out against a "brother seaman," where he states that Captain M'Diarmid did not study "the convenience and benefit to the citizens of Br...
