THE MORTALITY IN CHILDREN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 5 May 1864
THE MORTALITY OF CHILDREN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,-I was always under the impression that the climate of Queensland was a healthy one until I met with the following in Pugh's Almanac for 1864, which, if correct, tells fatally against it. Under the heading of " Population," page 168, it is stated that out of every one hundred births there was 58-68 per cent, deaths. Now, Sir, as I was thinking of settling in this colony, I am rather anxious upon this point ; for if the mortality is so great it certainly will deter persons with families from coming to it. Perhaps, Sir, you would compare the statistics of this and some of the neighbouring colonies on this subject, and give the public the result through the medium of your valuable paper. I may perhaps, while writing, mention that the climate seems to be most fatal to young children especially, for in February, 1863, out of 57 deaths, 28 were children under two years of age ; and in November, 30 out of 43 were childre...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 5 May 1864
Wîjt Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, MAT 5, 1S01. An Act to provide for the establishment of Grammar Schools in Queensland was introduced hy the Colonial Secretary during the first Session of ¡lie Queensland Parliament in 1860. The measure met with no opposition from the members of the House. All of them expressed their concurrence in the laudable object for which the Bill was framed. It was doubted, certainly, in some quat tors, whe- ther any districts in the colony would be hi a position to avail themselves of the advan- tages derivable from this act of legislation for some years, ami by many persons the Bill was lookel up m as an enactment which would do no immediate prac- tical good, hut which might prove beneficial to the colony after a consider- able lapse of lime. The Grammar Schools' Act was alluded to by the London Times, in a leading article upon the first session of the Parliament of Queensland, as an in- stance of the attention paid by our legislators to the social a...

THE OLD LADT, HER UMBRELLA, AND THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 5 May 1864
THE OLD LADT, HER UMBRELLA, AND THE ELECTRIC TELEGRAPH. IN an article entitled " Tho Electric Wire," to bo found in Chambers' Journal, for Saturday, October 17, 1SG3, tho following passage occurs : " AVc most of us remember tho story of Hie old lady who was travelling in tho days when telegraphs were no1 so generally understood as Uley arc at tho present limo. On arriving at her journey's end, shu could not find her um- brella, and imagined that she had left it at, home. Some one suggested telegraphing for it, so she proceeded to the oflleo for thal purpose. In tho meanwhile, however, mi astute port cr had discovered her umbrella in the carriage sho lind just left ; and, being humorously inclined, ho hung it on tho telegraph who, and subsequently induced tho old lady lo look if her umbrella lind arrived by the wire-ii modo of transit sho im- plicitly believed in. She, of course, expressed her delight in getting her umbrella, so quickly, but she expressed no surprise. Sho thought, pr...

APPALLING SNOW TEMPEST IN AMERICA. (From the Chicago Tribune.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 5 May 1864
APPALLING SNOW TEMPEST IN AMERICA. (From the Chicago Tribune.) We have had three days of the most severe weather that ever swept over the north-west &nbsp; The storm opened on Thursday with a cold, driving snow. Friday morning the mercury had fallen to the almost incredible degree of &nbsp; thirty eight below zero, Fahrenheit. On Satur- day morning it was thirty-six below zero. At &nbsp; &nbsp; this time (Sunday p.m. ) it is eight below zero. &nbsp; &nbsp; No trains have arrived at this station on the &nbsp; Chicago and Northwestern Railway since Thursday at noon, but will probably get through to-night. &nbsp; The only casualty that we hear of is that of a woman being frozen to death while driving &nbsp; a team between Berlin and Rosendale, Winne- bago county. There are many cases of frozen hands and feet and smaller members. On Fri- &nbsp; day night the dwelling house of Wiliam Fowler, &nbsp; &a...

COUNTRY COMMENTS ON TAS SING I EVENTS. Br AVii-i, AYeasie. No. 5. "It never rums but it pours" was surely meant for Queensland. AAlien travellers in tropical countries tell us of 105 hours' incessant rain, wo never believed thom. AVc thought such statements no more worthy of credence than Bruce's relation of the inhabitants of Africa w ho lived upon lion's food, or frequently out a slice for breakfast from tho haunch of a live cow. But now, in tho present month (March) we havo witnessed fourteen days and fourteen nights of constant down-pouring rain ! Excepting for an hour or so ct a time, it never ceased raining during the wholo of those throe hundred and thirty-six mortal, dreary, horrid hours. It kept coming down, down, down-tiny ufter dny-night after night-the wholo of that live-long period. It was not strange that in this awful desolation, men's hearts began to fail thom. " If it ruins for twelvo days," said an enthusiast, deep in tho mysteries of the Rov. Air. Cummings, "thewo...
