IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 10.) [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 12 May 1864

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 10.) From the statement of a gentleman who has   lately arrived from the neighbourhood where the late assassination of Mr. Owen took place, We have learned several additional parliculars   of that horrible event. From the evidence   given at the inquest there cannot be the slight   est doubt that the man Ritchie committed the   crime, for he stated to several his murderous intentions, and afterwards boasted to others of having carried them out. But if, as he has said, he had a grievance to avenge, he selected the   wrong victim. Ritchie was employed on the   North Branch portion of the yandilla run about four years ago, having been engaged by Mr. J. Pierce, His overseer. The man was dismissed for misconduct, upon which he summoned the overseer before the Police Court for the amount of the work for which he contracted. Ritchie lost the case -, but Mr. Ow...

White, desirous of paying him some compliment prior to his de- parture from the town, held a meeting at Mr frazer's, Queen's Arms Hotel, on Thursday evening last. The Mayor, Mr. A. H. Thomp son, occupied the chair. Strange to say, the promoters of the meeting who put the adver tisement in the paper calling the meeting had no resolutions prepared, and no one knew what to do. After some delay, Mr. W. H. Groom, M.L.A., who spoke very highly of Mr. White, moved a resolution agreeing to give Mr. White a public dinner, and present him with a public ' address. The resolution was recorded and carried. The Rev. J. T. Warraker moved a resolution to the effect that a committee be   appointed for the purpose stated in the previous resolution. The committee nominated con- sisted of the Mayor, Mr. W. H. Groom, M.L.A., Dr. Stacy, Rev. Fathers Larkin and Hodeburgh, Messrs. Woods, Langley, Boulton, and Gentle. ...
