THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOB OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 April 1864

THE LATE FIRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,-After the disastrous calamity which has just befallen the principal street of Brisbane, it becomes almost a duty to every one to offer whatever suggestion he may have to make to- wards the adoption of such steps, which may, if not altogether, yet in a great measure, prevent the wholesale destruction of so many buildings in one fell swoop. The most important measure to begin with whenver a fire breaks out should be the keep- ing clear of the street where the fire happens to be, for some distance on both sides of the fire by the police or special constables, who will allow none but known and respectable people to pass, such as express a willingness to assist in sup pressing the fire, because there is no greater   hindrance to the suppression of a fire than the assembling of a promiscuous crowd, which is partly bent on plunder, partly on mischief, and partly on a desire to assist, which latter portion, however, is ...

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR COAL FIELDS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 April 1864

CORRESPONDENCE. OUR COAL FIELDS.     TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir You will doubtless remember having invited discussion in your journal some time   in September, 1861, on two important subjects     affecting the interests of Queensland, namely,   " timber" and " coal." As, however, no party   stood'' forward to offer any suggestions on the   latter subject, I ventured to trouble you with a few remarks on October 24, (I believe), hoping name would be followed by some person or per     sons more competent than myself. The subject, however,was not sufficiently inviting to arrest   the attention of any one as yet. May I, there fore| solicit the favor of you're publishing my   ''letter at convenience at some time, adding the editorial note at foot. I make this request,     because a considerable...

The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 April 1864

THE COURIER PUBLISHED DAILY. THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 1864. The general suspicion with which com- petitive examinations are regarded all over the world, in Governmental matters, is certainly not without foundation. "We re- member a time when the public of Queens- land were led to suppose that the Civil Service was to be hedged round by very formidable competitive examinations, and we expected that not even a policeman would receive his appointment unless he were able to. answer one or two leading questions in criminal jurisprudence. The educated youth of the colony were invited to intense intellectual exertion, that they might be able to copy letters ; and were given to understand that, without having read Sir "Walter RALEIGH'S History of the World," and Newton's "Prin cipia"and ¡nstituted an acquaintance with logarithms, and duodecimals, and general mathematics, there would be no hope of rising to a position of responsibility. Whatever was the reason, this ostentatious parade broke down...

GOVERNMENT LAND SALE.   In accordance with the regulations recently gazetted Messrs. Martin and Dickson held their first sale of Crown lands at the City Auction Mart, at 11 o'clock yesterday morning. The lands offered consisted of town and country lots, the former being situated at South Brisbane ; the lat- ter, eight in number, are on the Cabulture River, and varied in size from 82 acres to 138 acres. For the lots at South Brisbane there was a very active competition, and all offered were sold at very great advance on the upset price. Lot 7, containing 36 perches - or less than a quarter of an acre - realised £110, or in other words were sold at the rate of about £460 per acre. For the country lands there were no offers. The total amount realised at the sale was £1122.

THE LATE FIRE AND PUBLIC MEETING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 April 1864

THE LATE FIRE AND PUBLIC     MEETING.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER.   SIR,–Permit me space for a few remarks in explanation relative to the public meeting held yesterday. On Monday morning, some hours after the fire, a number of citizens considered it would be desirable to memorialise the Mayor, requesting him to call a meeting forthwith, to arrange for the organization of a fire brigade, and to take any other steps that might be de- sirable to prevent, as much as possible, another such catastrophe occurring. On being urged by   several gentlemen, I obtained the names of about sixty of the principal mercantile firms and other residents, and received the Mayor's sanction, at seven p.m. on that day. Mr. Jeays at once consented, at my request, to meet at the   School of Arts prior to the public assembling, on the following morning, to consider the resolu- tions ; and at ten o'clock, on Monday eveni...

INQUEST ON THE LATE FIRE. An inquest was held before the coroner, at the Police Office, yesterday, at one o'clock p.m.,   into the cause of the late fire in Queen-street.   A jury of eight having been empannelled.   Sergeant Lang, sworn, deposed as follows : I am the person who first found out that a fire   was breaking out in Queen-street, my attention   was attracted by seeing a light burning in Mr. Fegan's shop ; the light was in the window op- posite the counter ; I heard something fall, and saw the light increase immediately ; I told   constable Hart that Mr. Fegan's place was on fire ; the constable was standing in the centre of the street ; I told him to give all the alarm he possibly could, and to use his utmost exertions to save property ; I then went to call Francis Marryatt, who lived at the rear of the premises   which were on fire, and asked if he knew   whether any one was sleepi...

THE PARLIAMENT HOUSE DESIGNS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 April 1864

THE PARLIAMENT HOUSE DESIGNS.   To THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER Sir,-I was not a little gratified in reading your remarks this morning on the above designs. The result of the deliberation by the Commis- sioners will surprise all who took any trouble to examine the plans,, especially ,in relation to the second premium. The country generally is largely interested in this undertaking, and hope that the Legislature will not tolerate the erection of the buildings on either of the pro- posed plans until the public have been afforded a better opportunity of judging of their suit- ability. It is rumoured that a "hole and cor- ner" arrangement was made, and that whatever ability had been displayed by other architects, certain individuals vested with particular-power       had determined upon their foregone conclusions. My reasons for offering these observations are, because, after a careful examination, I regarded the plans by "I bide...
