Ay UNKIND CUT. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 April 1864
AN UNKIND CUT. [COMMUNICATED.] INGRATITUDE is an offence of which few men care to plead guilty, but of which many are guilty, nevertheless. The keen blast of the chilling wintry wind is "not more unkind," and &nbsp; one can always pity those who have to shudder &nbsp; &nbsp; under its touch. Will Mr. Herbert accept our sympathy ? He has been shamefulhy ill-used, &nbsp; and if we chose to indulge in metaphor, we might say that he had been "nourishing a viper in his bosom" It is well that the session is so &nbsp; near, for he will soon be able to seek for sym- &nbsp; pathy in the compassionate bosom of a Taylor, or fly for refuge to the brawny arms of the vali- ant swordsman who misrepresents Warwick. Probably, however, the "beautiful head" has not &nbsp; &nbsp; felt the blow, or it may be that the owner thereof has withered the whilom sycophant with one of those felicitously-feline glances which &nbsp; occasional...

OPENING OF TUB NEw CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH, GOODNA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 25 April 1864
OPENING OF THE NEW CONGREGA- TIONAL CHURCH, GOODNA. THIS new and very pretty place of worship, &nbsp; which is situate on the top of the hill just beyond the creek at Goodna, and about a mile &nbsp; from Redbank, near Woogaroo, was opened for public worship on Sunday last. Two sermons were preached by Mr. Draper, who has &nbsp; ministered to the people for the year previously, that in the morning from Zachariah vi., 13– "He shall build the temple of the Lord, and he &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; shall bear the glory ;" and in the afternoon from Jeremiah vi., 16,–"Thus saith the Lord, &nbsp; stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the &nbsp; old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls." The attendance on both occasions was very encouraging, the seats being all occupied. On Thursday the opening services were con- tinued by a tea and public meeting, which was held in the same place. ...
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, April 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 26 April 1864
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. (From tho Correspondent of the S. iii. Herald.) Auckland, April 7. I am happy lo say that (hero is somo really important news to send you by tho present mail. Maungatautari is in our banils, und Iho natives havo made oil', probably deserting tho plains altogether-for the present at least. In itself, this evaouatiou of Maungatautari may bo looked upon us a misfortune, although it is in somo re- spects n success. General Cameron was espe- cially anxious to strike a blow beforo tho end of Hie campaign, which might combine with short provisions during the whiter to bring Iho natives to a better mind. This, tho ovticuntiou lins hindered, and the provoking part of the thing is, that it is wholly allributablo lo our own doing, or, rather to tho misconduct of a single officer. , AVhen General Cameron advanced upon Maungatauturi, ho was forced to lcavo a consi- derable body of men in garrison along his lino ol' march. The last of these garrisoned posts was that at ICi...
ARE CONVICTS THE NEPLUS ULTRA? [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 26 April 1864
ARE CONVICTS TUE NE PLUS ULTRA! The nmioxod extract taken from the West Australian Times of March 24, shows the im- portance attached to the continuation of trans- portation by-ti section of the-people, in the western colony. Tho colony owes a debt of graf iludo to Mr. Ross D. Mangles, for his able championship of our interests in tho Timen of 29th December last. Taking for his text the letter of Mr. G. AV. Leake, Crown Solicitor, (published in the Inquirer in October) he proves the hollowness of the selfish clamour raised by tho eastern colo- nies against h-ansportnlion lo this province ; mid he concludes with some remarks that pecu- liarly affect our condition at this moment, ami cannot be too often brought forward. Tim AA'esl Australians, ho snys, " consented lo re- ceive convicts, submitting to the evils ol' such inmates for the sake of a continuous supply of labor. But now thal Hie virus is inextricably in their blood (und the stronger tho view of the justice of the fears of Hi...

SUCCESSFUL IMPORTATION OF SALMON OVA. (From the Melbourne Argus, April 18.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 26 April 1864
SUCCESSFUL IMPORTATION OF SALMON OVA. (Erom (ho Melbourne Argus, April IS.) The patriotic efforts of Mr. James Youl and of his indufatigablo fellow-laborers, both at home nndjn theso colonies, have at length been crowned with ti signal victory. The salmon ova havo reached Australia in perfect health and full ol'h fe. The experiment lina been even, moro successful than the most sanguine of us could have expected. The first ol' the boxes oponed by Mr. Rmnsboltom on the arrival of the Nor- folk tit hot* anchorage, disclosed the interesting fact that at least eighty per cent, of Iho ova re- mained unaffected by their long voyage, and were hi sound condition. Dragged forth from their temporary nursery in the Norfolk's hold, and disencumbered ol' their unwonted surround- ings, the ova, to tho eager eyes which first looked on thom, seemed as healthy as though thoy had just left their ancestral beds in tho Esk or the Hodder.

He has prepared the bill because he considers the press the most effi- encious instrument for the progress of civilisa- tion and the development of nations, and for diffusing political and social knowledge, without which a free nation can only imperfectly exercise rights."
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 26 April 1864
The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 1864. ANOTHER session of the Queensland Par- liament will be commenced this day. A vice-regal speech will be made, and the constitutional advisers of the spokesman will be placed upon their trial. The pro- spect before them is not of a cheery nature. Acts, committed by them since the day on which the doors of the legislative chambers were closed for a long recess, will be com- mented upon by those who have carefully observed them during the interval, and the associations connected with the long vaca- tion given by the Government to them- selves, will, we believe, be embittered by the reception they will experience on meet- ing those whose right it is to criticise their conduct. The charges which will be brought against them will be principally those of commission. The policy which has been pursued by what, on a recent occa- sion, was termed, and perhaps justly so, the " MACALISTER'' ministry will call forth a debate, the result of whi...
