SABBATH SCHOOL CHILDREN'S SOIREE, AT THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

SABBATHB ECHOOL CHILDREN'S SOIREE, AT THE SCHOOL OF ARTS. The half-yearly Soiree given by the teachers to the, children.attending St. Stephen's Sabbath School, tfoo place last evening. It is not merely the fact of a " tea, wth nice bread and butter, and cake," that ensures a full attendance on such occasions, although such delicacirs as were prepared last night must have been highly satis factory to all, but the certainty of many ladies being present, generally causes a full assemblage of .the other sex, whom beauty may lead " by. a single hair," as the poet tells us, where any amount of cakes and oranges would prove ineffectual to attract, if beauty were absent. This was proved by the result of the meetiog last night, which must have been highly satisfactory to those who gave the entertainment, as between 400 and 500 were present. The chandeliers with which the hall was ghted, added a lustre to the brilliant assemblage which Tpswiehis so famous for producing; and the pretty little ...

THE LOAN OF £4000. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

THE LOAN or £4000. A tender from the Joint Stock Bank for the loan of £4000 was then read. Alderman O'Malley moved, and Alderman Watkins seconded a motion, " That the consideration of the tender be postponed for a week." Alderman Pettigrew moved that the Mayor, Alderman Tihompson and himself, be appointed as a committee with power to negotiate the loan. He had heard several com plaints of the shortness of the time allowed for sending in the tenders, and he felt sore that had there been time for the managers of the banks here to have corresponded with Sydney, they would have had more tenders sent in. They could not expect any private individuals to advance the noney for them; and he was of opinion that the money could be obtained by explaining their position to the banks and making a private arrangement with them. He was one of the party who made the first arrangement with the BEnk of Australasia, and he had no doubt that if they went to the trouble of explaining matters a little, th...

BURGLARS UNDERMINING. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

BoaoaGLA UNDEaMINIre .-A burglary of a most extraordinary character has been nipped in the bud at Barnsley, in a most extraordinary manner. It appears that Mr. Allen, a butcher, complained tha the refuse water from his house would not enter the sewer, and a workman having been sent to ascertain the reason of the stoppage, he found that digging operations were going on in the sewer close to Mr. Allen's house. The hole wasevidently beingdug in the direction of the house next to the %'tcher's, which happened to be a jeweller's shop. 'The police were made acquainted with the fact, and, night after night, two men where observed to $g up the main sewer. doubtless for the purpose of working their way into the jeweller's residence. 0Uhey. had nearly accomplished their task when they became aware they were watched, and they decamped. They have, however, been captured. One of the men is a returned convict, the other is a ticket-of-leave man. <This remarkable attempt appears more ex...

THE TRIAL OF MIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

THE TRIAL OF MItRES. (From the Economist.) The trial of the famous ]f. Mires has occupied the Tribunal of Correctional Police for five days, and has not yet concluded. It has revealed finan cial scandals of the gravest kind. Mires was managing director. of a; sort of bank. in shares, called the Caisse Generale des Chemins de For, and by its statutes he was expressly interdicted from speculating on the Bourse: and yet it has been proved that he speculated in the wildest manner, and itis aflirmed that in a great number of cases he personally appropriated the profits of successful operations on the ground t.hi-t they were made for himself alone, and threw on to tile shareholders the losses arising from unsuccessful ones, on the pre text that he acted as their agent. The principal business of his bank was to make advances on the deposit of ,ihrires and other securities, and, on the eve of the Ihalian war, he, being embarrassed, sohl off all the shares and securities lie had in hand with...

DREADFUL TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

DInEADFUnr TRAoEDY.-We learn through :a private source that a terrible tragedy occured in Exeter, Otsego country, on Tuesday morning of last week. The parties were a man named Levi Thomas and and his wife. They were natives of Exeter, we believe, and were married fifteen or six teen years sgd. They'had recently returned from Ohio, bringing with them two of their three children -girls of twelve and, fourteen years of age. On the morning in question these girls were awakned by their father, who came into their room. BHe kissed them both, and spioke of two men who; he said, owed him small sums of two and three dollars each ; after which he returned to the chamber-room where Mrs. Thomas was sleeping, and stepped on the foot of the bed, whence he deliberately fired one shot at her head from a revolver. The ball grazed hber cheek, and she sprang up and grappled him as lie was preparing to fire a second time. The girls, alarmed at the noise, jumped outof bed and entered the room'in time to...

THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE NAVIGATION OF THE RIVER BREMER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 11 October 1861

THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE NAVIGATION OF THE RIVER BREMER. ONE of the great wants of the town of Ipswich is a more free and unimpeded communication with the sea. We have now an immense traffic passing through the town of Ipswich, but the principal portion of the goods composing that traffic, require to be transhippe I at Brisbane before they can reach this town. This trans shipment causes many delays which are felt as a serious inconvenience by all who are engaged in trade, and there is a coisiderable amount of damage incurred which adds materially to the original cost of the goods. This loss and damage, must either be borne by the importer of tdie goods, or by the person purchasing from the importer ; or it may be that they eachl bear a proportionate share, sand that, therefore, the public at large suffer from the inconvenience, and are necessarily interested in obtaining a remedy. Most of our readers are aware that a sum of £2000 was voted for the improvement of the Bremer'in the firs...
