The Courier. PUBLISHED DAILY. SATURDAY, MAY 14, 1864. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The Estimates of the probable Ways and Means and Expenditure of the Go- vernment of Queensland, for the year 1865, were laid before the Assembly yes- terday afternoon. Few documents possess greater interest at the commencement of a session than this, for it indicates, if not the true notions of the Ministry upon the financial position of the country, at least, their appreciation of tbeir own strength, and of the gullability of the community and the elasticity of the public credit. We learn, then, that the Ministry are confident and hopeful. For the wel- fare of the colony, we shall be glad to find that their confidence is not misplaced or their hope groundless. Any doubts that we may entertain on the subject &nbsp; we need not now express at length, for it will be only fair to the Treasurer to wait for his " Budget"' before questioning the reliability of his calculations. The w...

ARRIVAL OF THE VERNON. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 14 May 1864
ARRIVAL OF THE VERNON. The arrival of the Government immigrant ship Vernon will allay the anxiety which has been felt respecting her safety by those who have friends on board of her. She was sighted from Lytton at sundown on Thursday evening, but her name did not reach town until yester- day morning, when much satisfaction was ex- pressed at her safe arrival. The particulars respecting her which have reached town are very meagre, but it seems that after leaving Plymouth she touched at some port on the Brazilian coast, either at Pernambuco or at Rio Janeiro, in consequence of the illness of her commander, Captain Goldsmid, who was left in America. Another commander joined the ship at the Brazils, and navigated her to Moreton Bay, but we have not learned his name. The fact of the illness of Captain Goldsmid having caused the Vernon to put into a South American port, will in part account for the unusual length of her passage, and we are informed by Captain Aitchaison, of the Prince Con...

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 11. Nothing of any great importance has &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; occurred since the date of my last letter, beyond the circumstance of the death, through a fall from a horse, of a very fine young man named John Tracy, employed in one of the government &nbsp; &nbsp; road parties. On Monday, the unfortunate de- &nbsp; ceased in company with two other, was riding in from Murphy's Water Hole to Toowoomba, &nbsp; &nbsp; to meet Mr. Harding, the road overseer. When &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; near the saw mills Tracy was seen riding very furiously, and shortly after was seen to fall. Assistance was soon procured, but to no avail, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; as death was instantaneous, the neck being com- &nbsp; &nbsp; pletely dislocated.
