THE MARGARET ELIZA, PRISON HULK. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 May 1864

THE MARGARET ELIZA, PRISON   HULK.   During the last session of Parliament, in 1863, a vote was granted for the purchase of a hulk, to bo employed as a prison for refractory seamen, and also to afford accommodation for the water police force. The necessity for some place for the safekeeping of sailors under sen- tence has been fully shown by the occasional crowding of the Brisbane gaol to such an ex- tcnt that the officials were compelled to place male lunatics in the ward for female prisoners. When the requisite funds were placed at the disposal of the Government, tenders were in- vited for the supply of a vessel of not, less than 500 tons registered burden, with boats, gear, and such other fittings as might be required for a prison ship ; and finally the Government acceplted, conditionally, the barque Margaret Eliza, which appeared to be equal to the requirements. She arrived in Moreton Bay on the 24th January, after a pas- sago of four days from New Cale...

THE JOHAN CESAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 May 1864

This vessel arrived at the anchorage on Mon- day, April 25th, but her name did not reach town until the following morning. On the receipt of this information her agents engaged the steamer Diamond to proceed to the Bay with the Health Officer, through whose courtesy we were enabled to gather the following particu- lars :-The German barque, Johan Cesar, 414 tons register, sailed from Hamburg, under the commandl of Captain J. H. Falck, with 231 emi- grants on the 7th of Nov., 1863. In consequence of the violent gales that prevailed along the coasts of Great Britain and in the NorthSea about that time, and during which there were numberless wrecks-the loss of the German ships Wilhelmsberg and Grassbrook may be specially mentioned-Captain Falck ran into Cowes, in the Isle of Wight, for shelter, and also to obtain provisions. He did not leave there until the 18th December, and since then he appears to have had a favourable though somewhat long passage, having arrived in Moreton Bay on th...
