3Hje Courier. be PUBLISHED DAILY._ Sul . " ' att I MOXDAY, MAY 16, 1S61. att stn The Sessions of the Queensland Parlia- ment for the past two years have been characterized by some lively debates upon questions of Privilege. A very animated discussion of this character took place on Ftitlay last, as will be seen by the reports of the proceedings in the House. Gene- rally speaking some unfortunate publisher of a -newspaper has been the person held up to execration as a violater of Privilege by indignant members. On the last occasiou, however, the party, presumed on very strong evidence to be guilty, xvas a Government servant holding a. high posi- tion. It is a curious fact that those mem- bers of the House who,- on previous occa- sions, were loudest in their cry of " Privi " lege" when comment had been made upon their conduct in a legitimate manner through the press, desired and endeavoured on Friday last to ignore the existence of a privilege which a majority of the House con- sidere...

THE VERNON. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 16 May 1864
THE VERNON. The Blackwall ship, Vernon, Captain Golds- mid, embarked 373 Government immigrants at Southampton, for Brisbane, on the 4th Decem- ber, 1863, and on the 8th of the same month, she put to sea, but anchored at the Mother Bank off Ryde, in the Isle of Wight, owing to contrary winds. She lay there till the 13th of December, during which interval one of the seamen was lost overboard. She resumed her passage on that date, and had light variable winds and fine weather to the Line, which caused that portion of the run to occupy a longer time than usual. On the 2nd February, 1863, at 2 a.m., it was reported that some of the sailors were in the fore-hold broaching cargo, and making free with the spirits. Captain Goldsmid and Mr. Aldridge, the chief officer, went below and ordered them forward, and ex- cept that some of the men were very violent and threatening in their language, this attempt at mutiny passed off, and the men returned to their duty. At 10 o'clock on the same mornin...
