THE LATE CRICKET MATCH. TO TOE EDITOR OP THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,-Some remarks, expressive of surprise at (he result of the match at Ipswich on Saturday, have been made to-day, not very complimentary to (ho players «-ho represented 'Brisbane. That thoy lost their wickets tvith extraordinary ra- pidity cannot bo denied, at tho samo lime ii is not the first installée of good cricketers having shared a similar fate. In a match between tho All-England Elevens, north and south, some years since, one side «as put out in the first innings for ten runs, bul in the second innings thoy scored abovo two hundred. In Tasmania, a few years ago, au eleven made about 15 in their lirsfc innings, but aboyo 150 in their second, li »'evident that all of our cloven «ere in ex- cellent trim for playing, which yvas proved by their superior fielding. Less than ono hour having before their innings, and having only 50 to go in against, thoy calculated upon making al least 100, and the utmost confidenco yva...

®Öe (tolmer* PUBLISHED DAILY. TUESDAY, MAY IO, 18G1. A STAXDAKO authority remarks, when writing of Hie earlier stages of American history-" lu sttnlying the laws which wera " promulgated at the lirstora of tlio Amc " ricaii republics, it is impossible not to be " struck by the remarkable acquaintance " with the science of Government, and the " advanced theory of legislation which they " display.*' No historian of Australia will have it in his power to speak in such highly eulogistic terms of our colonial statute-books, unless it be in reference to a. few isolated enactments. Instead ol' fol- lowing the noble example set by the Pil- grim .Fathers two hundred years ago, and whieli will, in many respects, remain a pat- tern to the end oí time, slavish copyistn seems to bo the acme oí our legislators. There is au apparent abhorrence of any de- parture from the beaten track which woultl do honor to tlio rankest Tory who ever sat in the Kouso of Gommons, or growled out fierce anathemas up...

FOUNDERING OF THE BARQUE PRINCE ARTHUR, ONE HUNDRED MILES FROM LAND. (From the Newcastle Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 10 May 1864
FOUNDERING OF THE BARQUE PRINCE ARTHUR, ONE HUNDRED MILES FROM LAND. (From the Newcastle Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) It is somewhat remarkable that while one shipwrecked crew was receiving the hospitality of Mr. Harpur, another so soon should seek shelter under the same roof-all within a few hours. Yes ; this somewhat romantic and isolated dwelling, standing on a ridge over- looking the vast Pacific Ocean, became the tem- porary abode of two shipwrecked crews ; for, scarcely had a portion of the crew of the ill- fated Grecian made themselves comfortable for &nbsp; the night, when the captain and chief officer of the equally ill-fated barque Prince Arthur also demanded shelter from the pitiless storm which &nbsp; was still raging with unabated fury. With regard to the loss of this vessel it ap- pears she left this port on last Thursday week with a cargo of 700 tons coal, bound for Dune- din, N.Z. Shortly after leaving the vessel began to leak in the after part...
