THE MURDER OF MR. OWEN, OF YANDILLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 May 1864

THE MURDER OF MR. OWEN, OF YANDILLA. The following letter which bears upon this distressing circumstance is taken from the Too- woomba Chronicle of the 12th inst :-   "Sir - Seeing the cause of dispute mis- stated (in our local newspapers) between the late Mr. Owen and his supposed murderer, I think it but just to the memory of the murdered gentleman to state the real facts of the case, viz. :- About the 25th February, 1861, I made   a contact with Ritchie to erect seven huts for Messrs. Gore Brothers. The first to be put up was a kitchen at my house. Ritchie got on with     it until it was half shingled when he left it, say- ing he could get more profitable employment at Felton. However, he being so very slow, I was glad to get rid of him. He came back after four   or five days and I wrote to Mr. Owen, as I       knew he was coming to stop here for the night, to take Ritchies sto...

THE EDUCATIONAL BOARD OF QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 May 1864

THE EDUCATIONAL KO ARD OF QUEENSLAND. The Report of the Board of General Education for 1803 cannot he regarded as other than a gratifying proof of the excellence of the system which Queensland has adopted for the preparation of her youth for the business of after-life. Yet the experience of the working of that system for the brief period of four years shows us that, good as it is, it is suscep- tible of improvement. Wo are the better prepared to consider this calmly and yvith- out prepossession, when we know that what tvo aro disposed to accept as an improve- ment can bo effected yvithout interference with the educational polity of the Stato. And, indeed, the fact of its coining before us in the shape of a recommendation by the Board demands for it the most careful attention. The moro so, becauso ou a past occasion we ga\-e ourselves tho liberty of certain strictures upon the constitution of tho Board in the beliof lliat (as subse- quently came to pass) thoy would attempt to subvert...

THE PRIZE ESSAYIST ON SUGAR CULTURE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 17 May 1864

THE PRIZE ESSAYIST ON SUGAR CULTURE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BRISBANE COURIER. Sir,—I feel that I would not be acting fairly to myself or the public by withholding the fol- lowing communication on the above subject, and would feel obliged by the publication thereof in your valuable and widely circulated       journal, along with a few comments of my own on the same subject. Having recently read some remarks, at a meeting held in Brisbane for the formation of a   sugar company, of the successful competitor for the prize on the yellow cane as being best   adapted for this colony, how does it happen, I would ask, that only now he gives this informa- tion, when no notice whatever of the cane is     contained in his essay ? I am really of opinion that he is entirely un- acquainted with the cane, or how is it no men- tion was made of it in his essay ? He also gave an opinion on manuring, and that the m...

I it is be".' Under the abovo heading lhere is bul little to record in our monthly Summary. Fortu- nately tho colony has not been visited by a flood similar to thal which occasioned so much de- struction of properly during tho months of March and April of tho present year, nor have tvo to report a repetition of tho severo lossos by fire which were experienced by so many of the residents of Brisbane previous to tho departure of tho last mail. Tho sull'ercvs from both calami- ties havo been oxorting themselves to attain the position they held previous to their occurrence, a faul which speaks greatly in nitor of tho energy possessed by the colonists of Queensland. Ac- counts have been received of tho sovcro trials endured by those who, surrounded bywater, had to form their temporary homes in trees for soveral clay s, living in somo instances upon tho carcases of animals which had boen swept away by the Hoods, or upon opossums or nativo rats.

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

THE EXCELSIOB. This vessel left London Docks on the 29th of November, and cleared the Lizard Point on the 19th of December, having encountered very heavy gales from the westward in working down the English Channel. During the middle por- tion of the pnssagc she had moderate and fine weather, and on the 5th of January she put into Port Prayo, in the island of St. Jago, be- longing to the Cape Verde group, to repair the pumps, which were out of ordor. On the 18th of the same month she resumed her passage but subsequently touched at the island of Tristan de Acunha, on the 17th Februaro, to obtain a supply of water. Thence to the meri- dian of the Cape of Good Hopo she met with strong westerly breezes and fine weather. In running her easting, while between the meridian of the Capoeand that of the Mauritius, in lati-   tude 41 degrees south she fell in with three cyclones, all of which travelled in an easterly direction. Afterwards she had a continuance of violent gales from...

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

THE VERNON. The Blackwall ship, Vernon, Captain Golds- mid, embarked 373 Government migrants 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 ol the men were very violent and threatening in their language, this attempt   at...

ENGLISH NEWS. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) THE TEMPLE. March 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 18 May 1864

ENGLISH NEWS.   (From Our London Correspondent.) The Temple, March 26. The Germans and the Danes are still fighting in Schleswig Holstein, and each morning brings news of sieges, and skirmishes, and marches, and the other incidents of war. 'The bombardment of Fredericia is the latest event of importance, but nothing decisive has occurred. The Danes are waiting the attack of the allied armies in their entrenchments, and the allies do not seem yet prepared to make the attack, and the conse- quence is that as yet indecisive and unimpor- tant skirmishes are the only results of the cam-   paign. Meanwhile the English government has been trying to bring about an accommodation of some sort. The proposal for a Conference, coupled with an armistice, was rejected by both parties. A Conference without an armistice was then proposed, and this suggestion appears to have been more successful. Austria and Prussia are said to have acceded to it, but the assent of Denmark is at present ...
