No Title [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 28 June 1861
Ir is with pleasure we have to notice the fact that there is one member for the City of Brisbane whohas had the manliness to set him self above localism. Our readers will recollect that Mr. MacA~ISTER stated, as one of his reasons for his resignation, that it was hopeless to attempt to initiate or carry out any measure for the good of the colony generally, whilst there were so many members in the House, whose only object appeared to be a scramble, with the object that the public money should be spent in tile localities for which they were the representatives. There- is one gentleman in the Assembly, at any rate, who has ventured upon taking a more statesman-like view .of the subject of the expenditure of the public money, and, as a consequence, his con stituents are highly indignant with him, and have prepared a requisition calling upon him to resign. Mr, RAFE, the gentleman to whom we allude, had the temerity to refrain from voting for the expenditure of £15,000 for the con structi...

Yes, I think I do-you are the l1ev. Mr. S." "' I am," replied Spurgeon; and immediately added, "Mr. B., will you give me a clock for my tabernacle ?" Mr. B., after a moment's reflection, said te would, and at once pointed out one, promis ing to have a newcase put to it suitable for its place in the building. Mr. S., after thanking the donor, inquired the price of the clock.; and on being told that it was Valued at thirty guineas, now wished to know how much Mr. B., would give for letting it be put 'up, adding that it would be a good adver tisement forhim. MAr. B. at first seemed taken by surprise at this new adiortising notion, but even tually said he would give ten guineas for fixing it. Mr. S. thanked him graciously, sa...
COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 2 July 1861
COLONIAL EXTRACTS. A LONG SnoT.-A novelty has just been intro. duced at the London Rifle Saloon in Pitt-street, by the proprietor, Mr. Charles Morris, who has erected several rifle tubes and tunnels on his premises, for the convenience of volunteers and others wishing to practice. The first is a telescopic tube of iron, ninety feet long, which, although favourable to be. ginners, is yet objectionable to skilled shots. Mr. Morris altered this tube into an iron tunnel of one hundred and ten feet by seven in width, with two targets attached. The proprietor then constructed a tunnel one hundred and fifty feat in length with comfo.table arrangements made for visitors. At the distance of -thiry-six yards in the new tunnel, one target is placed for pistol practice, and at fifty yards distance a large iron target for lifle practice, where the volunteers can shoot with the Enfield and other rifles. Sometimes prizes are contested for, and shortly two costly ones are to be shot for at Manly Be...
