THE COURIER. PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, MAY 6, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 6 May 1864
3DÏTC Courier.. PUBLISHED DAILY. \ FRIDAY, MAY O, 1SG1. It must lie a relief to the inhabitants of Brisbane anil the suburbs to know that all obstacles in the way of proceeding with tlio Bridge have, at length, been sur- mounted ; and that the Municipal Council is now, for the first time, in a position to enter upou the prosecution of this impor- tant public work. We have na doubt that all who have the welfare of the city at heart are glad to forget their anxiety and disappointment at past procrastination in the hopeful prospects of the future. And, though one may feel that ere this there could havo been at least a good foot- way spanning the noble stream that divides our city, and thus an end put to all the dismal doublings anont steam-ferries and other less questionable facilities for traffic ; we can as easily forbear express- ing regret for the conveniences that we had desired as we can withhold condemnation of the causes that prevented our obtaining them. We feel that ive can a...

BOWEN. (From the Port Denison Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 7 May 1864
¦-.BOWEN.-' (From tho Port Denison Times.) As an impression seems to have gone abroad that the seamen of the Nightingale have not been so fairly treated as they had a right to ex pect, we think it necessary to state that they had no right to expect, as a right, that they &nbsp; should be provided with a free passage at the cost of the Government. There is a proviso in &nbsp; the Merchant Shipping Act that foreign sea- men, in case of shipwreck, shall be sent to their own country, but no such clause exists in the colonial law with regard to British seamen manning coasting vessels. The Police Magis- trate furnished the unfortunate men with fresh clothing and necessaries entirely on his own re- sponsibility, and also set on foot a subscription for their benefit. As the law now stands he could do no more. &nbsp; Herbert-street will soon, begin (to prosont ail imposing upponniuce. Six months havo worked a very marked chango for tho' botlor. .-Within that: limo tho...
