TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Thursday, April 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) Thursday, April 7. &nbsp; Although it was raining heavily when I last wrote to you, with every appearance of a con- tinuance of the disastrous wet weather, yet I am glad to say a change has taken place, and we have now fine days, equally fine nights, and every prospect of things once more assuming a more cheerful aspect. As was predicted the floods on the Lower Condamine and Maranoa have been of a most destructive character, and it is impossible at present to form any adequate idea of Hie terrible losses that have resulted.' It &nbsp; is more than probable that we shall never defi nately learn the amount of stock destroyed, as most persons have strong pecuniary reasons for being silent and stifling investigation. There is a grout dearth of news here just now, and, in the absence of anything else, the Muni- cipal Council is attracting the attention of people generally. By extravagance and incom petency, the Council are involved...
THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 April 1864
THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir, - What would the nations of the earth think if they knew that in the chief city of the colony of Queensland there is not a properly organised Fire Brigade, neither paid nor volun- tary. There is a fire engine certainly, such as &nbsp; it is, but it is a miserable affair, compared with those made in America, though I have no doubt it has cost as much money. The great fire this morning tells a tale which should not &nbsp; &nbsp; be disregarded ; some fine buildings have been &nbsp; thoroughly burnt down, to say nothing of the &nbsp; &nbsp; contents, most likely of far more value. Will &nbsp; not the government and the city council bestir themselves, so that this city shall be placed in &nbsp; comparative safety from fire. I am no admirer of American government, as I have seen it and &nbsp; &nbsp; heard of it as carried out, but though there is a ve...

THE SHIP PRINCE CONSORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 April 1864
THE SHIP PRINCE CONSORT. A Government Gazette Extraordinary was &nbsp; published yesterday containing a proclamation placing the ship Prince Consort in quarantine. We are glad to see that the government have &nbsp; taken such precautionary measures. The proclamation is as follows : - " Whereas it is expedient that the ship Prince Consort, now on her passage from Hervey's &nbsp; &nbsp; Bay to Moreton Bay, with immigrants, should &nbsp; &nbsp; be debarred from entry at the latter port : Now, therefore, his Excellency the Governor, by and with the advice of the Executive Council, and in pursuance and exercise of the authority vested in him by the 'Quarantine Act of 1863, ' doth order. and it is hereby ordered, that the said &nbsp; ship, the Prince Consort, shall be so debarred from entry, and shall immediately on her arrival &nbsp; &nbsp; at the said port of Moreton Bay be placed in &nbsp; quarantine, and s...

THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN ANNUAL MEETING. (From the Queensland Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 April 1864
THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN ANNUAL MEETING. &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Queensland Times.) THE only addition that we have to make to the list of entrances is the following for the St. Leger:–Mr. O'Malley's b. c. Ramorinie, by &nbsp; Pitsford out of Cassandra. For the St. Leger there are therefore double the number of entrances there were last year, and three times as many as the year previous. Taking this as an omen of the rest of the races on the carte, it promises well for the forthcom- ing annual meeting. Both the number and quality of the horses entered for only two of the &nbsp; events of the annual races must be a proof that the turf keeps up its progress in Queensland, and ??ally at its headquarters, Ipswich. &nbsp; ??? the six "young uns" entered for the Trial Stakes, it will be seen that two are Pits- ford's:–Erl King, by Pitsford out of Catty ; &nbsp; and Jane Pitsford, by Pitsford out of Chrysalis. &nbsp; &nbsp; Two are...

GRAFTON. ANOTHER FLOOD ON THE CLARENCE RIVER, AND LOSS OF LIVES. (From the Clarence and Richmond Examiner, April 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 April 1864
GRAFTON. &nbsp; ANOTHER FLOOD ON THE CLARENCE RIVER, AND LOSS OF LIVES. (From the Clarence and Richmond Examiner, April 5.) RAIN, rain, nothing but rain, rendering the noble and useful Clarence into a most formidable sheet of water–overflowing its boundaries, and converting immense areas of land into large lagoons, destroying the crops and sweeping all before it. Such has been the Clarence River of &nbsp; late, and on Thursday the waters again came into our town, and the continued outpouring of the waters from above, almost without interces- sion ever since, has not tended to decrease the same ; consequently all the gulleys and low lands are inundated, many parts being alto- gether inaccessible. On Thursday the river at Grafton had risen nearly 20 feet above its ordinary level, and the inhabitants were kept in constant fear that the waters would surround them and &nbsp; enter their dwellings and stores ; fortunately, however, the residents in Prince-street an...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 April 1864
THE COURIER. PUBLISHED DAILY. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 1864. THE public mind is greatly disquited by the calamity which has just fallen upon Brisbane, and a feeling of dread and inse- curity possesses all classes of citizens. To our shame and horror we saw, on Monday morning, the overwhelming fire long defy all our available appliances for its arrest and extinction ; and, what was equally mortifying, we found ourselves almost im- potent to save valuable property which even the flames had spared. Such a state of things in the metropolis of the colony is sufficient to imperil the character which we have hitherto enjoyed for prudence and energy in the establishment of our social and political institutions, if it be not calculated to retard our ma- terial progress and injuriously affect our commercial relations with extra- colonial communities. But we will not dwell upon the disaster which is so pain- fully fresh in the memory of us all. It be- hoves us, rather, to stimulate the wide- sprea...
THE LANCASHIRE CO-OPERATIVE COTTON COMPANY'S PLANTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 13 April 1864
THE LANCASHIRE CO-OPERATIVE COTTON COMPANY'S PLANTATION. WE have lately received a sample of very fine cotton, the produce of the labour of the above company on the plan- tation at the Pimpama River, and also several particulars in connection with the pro- gress of the company. There has of late been a desire evinced by a portion of the community to condemn the cultivation of cotton in Queens- land, on the ground that it will never become a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; payable product ; but we are not disposed to arrive at so hasty a conclusion. &nbsp; We learn from a report furnished to us, and &nbsp; &nbsp; that from a reliable source, that the cotton pods are opening rapidly, and that on the Pimpama plantation about sixty pounds weight of cotton &nbsp; is being daily picked. So favourable has been &nbsp; &nbsp; the yield that it has been found necessary to &nbsp; erect a new shed for the storing of the cotton...
