BREACH OF BENEVOLENT ASYLUM REGULA- TIONS. – Robert Hickey, convicted of having committed a breach of the regulations of the Benevolent Asylum, was sent to gaol for four- teen days.   A DUNDEE minister recently addressed his congregation as follows :– "You go about the streets at the New Year time–you get drunk,     and get cold, then yon come here and cough, cough like a park of artillery. I think I must   give you a vacation of six weeks, that you may have time to get sober and to regain your health     again." One of the congregation stood up and   censured the clergyman for using such insulting language.

NEWS OF THE WEEK. FRIDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 30 April 1864

NEWS OF THE WEEK. FRIDAY EVENING. Parliament assembled on Tuesday, pursuant to the Governor's proclamation, for despatch of business. The opening speech was affluent of promises of enlightened measures for the ad- vancement and prosperity of the colony, and certainly left little cause for cavil, if we except the tone of elation in which our experimental railway system was alluded to, and the unwel- come suggestions for further loans when no word could be offered of satisfaction with the present financial condition of the colony. In both houses the usual formal addresses in reply were agreed to. A little friendly criticism was indulged in by her Majesty's opposition in the Assembly, but without any serious intention of carrying on active hostilities. If the ministry were sincere there would be little difference between the two sides of the house ; but there is such a want of consistency between their professions and their performances, that inde- pendent members are only to give them...

COMMERCIAL. BRISBANE COURIER Office, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 30 April 1864

COMMERCIAL. BRISBANE COURIER Office, Friday Evening.   BUSINESS during the past week has shown considerable improvement, particularly in the execution of orders for station supplies. Two steamers have been dispatched this week for the Northern Ports-the Queensland on Tues-     day, and the Clarence to-day ; both of which vessels take unusually large cargoes. The ar-   rivals also have been very numerous, two of them being from European Ports.   In consequence of the intellience received from Mauritius by the mail steamer Madras, an alteration has taken place in the price of sugar,         and all qualities of the Sydney Company's man- ufacture are quoted at about £4 per ton lower. A movement for the formation of a company           having for its objects the growth and manufacture   &amp...

NEWS AND NOTES. April 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 30 April 1864

NEWS AND NOTES. BY A SYDNEY MAN. April 26. THE opera season in Sydney has closed–the opera season in Melbourne, I presume, is about to begin. Parliament in Sydney has closed– Parliament in Brisbane opens. As I write, the splendour of to-day's spcetacle will be fresh in your minds, and the words of wisdom which you must have heard from the lips of his Ex- cellency, proceeding as they do from the foun- tains of wisdom itself, cannot fail to have made a solemn and awful impression upon your ner- vous system. Our precious Parliament closed on Friday last, but as I had the ill-luck to miss the Clarence, owing to her departure at four o'clock yesterday, when I thought she wasn't going till five, and therefore the prorogation news will be stale ; I will only say that Sir John Young's speech was the most absurd production that I have seen as yet. The Empire, of Saturday last, took it to pieces freely. It is certain that our Parliament has broken up with- out providing for a deficit of about...

A POLITICAL REVERIE. (AFTER?AND A LONG WAY AFTER?BYRON.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 30 April 1864

A POLITICAL REVERIE. (AFTER–AND A LONG WAY AFTER–BYRON.) THE Sheikh before his breakfast table sate, His looks were crusty, and his eyes were dull, So great the trouble he had borne of late, So great his grief that every place was full ; And, furthermore to vex his goodly pate, The t'other side had now began to pull, And "pull altogether," as they say, Making less smooth the ministerial way. The coffee-pot eke sang a lively tune, All hot and piping was the fragrant stew– (Reminding one of meals at Ballymoon), And tempting were the butter'd muffins too. The Sheikh perused the Courier, but full soon His read was ended, for a man in blue Entered, and said that one in plush did wait To gain an audience at the palace gate. "Who is he?" quoth the Sheikh. "Where is his   card ? Is he of stature tall, or stout, or thin?   Is he unfledged, or 'bearded like the pard?'     Is he a man whom one with smiles might win ?   Or is he o...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, APRIL 30, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 30 April 1864

Wíjt (tamer* PUBLISHED DAILY. SATUltDAY, APHIL 30, 1801. Titu Parliamentary campaign lias cora lnencotl with advantages ostensibly lo the Ministerial side of the House. An inju- dicious amendment upon the address, in reply to tlio vice-regal speech, had to bo withdrawn by the mover, in order to avert its defeat in a more positive manner. Tlio mover of this amendment was not, we believe, the recognised leader of the "organised opposition," and, if we mistake not, the amendment of Mr. Douglas took by Mirprise some of those who have usually acted with him, and with whom ho seems to have deemed it undesirable or unneces- sary to consult.' This circumstance seems to indicate that the alleged " organisation" of the Opposition is somewhat similar to that of tlio Federal armies 'at the com- mencement of tlic present American war. Tlio attempt at "organisation" appears to havo boen, to some extent, marred by causes similar to thoso which prevailed in the armies of the Potomac on the occa- si...
