THE MARGARET ELIZA, PRISON HULK. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 May 1864
THE MARGARET ELIZA, PRISON HULK. During the last Session of Parliament, in 1863, a vote was granted for the purchase of a hulk, to be employed as a prison for refractory seamen, and also to afford accommodation for the water police force. The necessity for some place for the safekeeping of sailors under sen- tence has been fully shown by the occasional crowding of the Brisbane gaol to such an ex- tent that the officials were compelled to place male lunatics in the ward for female prisoners. When the requisite funds were placed at the disposal of the Government, tenders were in- vited for the supply of a vessel of not less than 500 tons registered burden, with boats, gear, and such other fittings as might be required for a prison ship; and finally the Government accepted, conditionally, the barque Margaret Eliza, which appeared to be &nbsp; equal to the requirements. She arrived in Moreton Bay on the 24th January, after a pas- &nbsp; sage of four days from New Caledon...

THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 May 1864
THE WAR IN NEW ZEALAND The following account, taken from tho Tara- naki Herald of April 9th, appeared in a second edition of the Daily Southern Cross, published on April 10th:- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; DEFEAT AT AHUAHU. It is this week our painful duty to record the first real defeat which our forces have suffered at the hands of the natives during the present war, and which has cost us the lives of at least six of our fellow countryment, including, we deeply regret to say, Captain Lloyd of the 57th Regt., beside twelve others wounded and one missing. The accounts we have been able to gather of how it happened are vague, and in many parts conflicting, but the result is indeed only too clear. The following we believe to be substantially correct as far as it goes:- On Tuesday night Captain Lloyd received orders to take a hundred men and proceed on the following morning to reconnoitre in the neighborhood of Ahuahu. Accordingly, at an hour on Wednesday...
NOVEL MODE OF DESTROYING ANIMAL LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 May 1864
NOVEL MODE OF DESTROYING ANIMAL LIFE &nbsp; I HAVE been requested by Mr. T. Baggs to call upon him and examine the practical working of a patent which he has taken out, and which he describes to me as "improvements in the means and apparatus for capturing or killing birds, animals, whales, &c., with a view of forming a public compauy." As no nettings, springs, traps, guns, or poisons (animal or vegetable) were to bo used, I could not imagine how the object was to be attained, but Mr. Baggs soon explained. This gentleman has, I understand, studied the effects of electricity in all its bearings, and it has occurred to him that its benumbing and life-taking agency might be turned to some practical account; and there is no doubt he has some fearful weapon of destruc- tion under his command. In order to give; me an easy and simple demonstration of its powers, he took me into his laboratory, where was a neat but exceedingly powerful electro-magnetic apparatus, and a large ...
RICHARD GREEN'S PERFORMANCES IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 4 May 1864
RICHARD GREEN'S PERFORMANCES IN ENGLAND. Under the heading of " Last Year's Rowing," the Saturday Review of February 6th, speaks of the Australian champion: " Ono of the most remarkable events of the last rowing season was the match between Chambers of Newcastle and the Australian Green, for the championship of the Thames. Green is a native of Port Jackson, and a very fine specimen of the antipodean British race. He arrived in this country in August, 1862, and placed himself under the tuition of an ex- champion, Kelly, of Putney. His style, which was at first considered defective, improved greatly under Kelly's lessons. Neither tutor nor pupil could possibly have been more assidu- ous than Kelly and Green nor is it likely that, &nbsp; in the ten months which elapsed between Green's arrival and his race with Chambers, there were many students of art or science who even equalled Green's devotion to the practice of the more refined mysteries of the sculler's business. Perhaps i...
