He was sorry there were so few present that evening, but he thought they would agree with him that the report was a very satis- factory one. He would call upon the Secretary to read it. &nbsp; The Secretary read the following report, which was unanimously adopted : REPO...

MR. FITZGIBBON AND THE BRIS- BANE BRIDGE. &nbsp; The following letter, addressed to the Guardian newspaper, appeared in Thursday's issue of that journal. We republish it as refer- ence is made to it in our leading columns, and we should be sorry to deprive any portion of the public of an opportunity of reading what may be termed the "defence" of the Commis- &nbsp; &nbsp; sioner of Railways :– "Sir, – You may probably have perceived that my attentive friend of the North Australian and Courier has delivered himself of one of his periodical attacks upon me in the latter paper of the 7th instant, the subject being, on this occasion, tho Brisbane bridge, and from the virulence of the article it would seem that in addressing the corporation upon this question, I have poached upon what somebody considers his special preserve.

COMMERCIAL. COURIER OFFICE, Thursday evening. &nbsp; &nbsp; WE have news from Sydney by the Telegraph &nbsp; to the 11th instant. The S. M. Herald of Sa- turday last says :– &nbsp; there has been a slight improvement in business &nbsp; &nbsp; this week but our markets generally are dull and without any movement. There is no anxiety at present to enter into speculative transactions, and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; importers being more ??? of realising, where large sales are made, a reduction in price has gene- rally been submitted to. The flour market is not &nbsp; quite so firm. Adelaide is quoted at £23 to £24 per ton ; wheat, 8s to 8s. 6d. per bushel. Spirits are generally dull of sale, with the exception of rum which is a little higher ; large sales of 30 o.p. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; having been made at 3s. 3d. to 3s 4d., and small &nbsp; &nbsp; lots as hig...

The Courier PUBLISHED DAILY. FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 1864. &nbsp; MR. FITZGIBBON is an angry man, and has written, or got written for him, an angry letter. He would have acted more wisely had he remained quiet, but as he has chosen to face the perils of print we copy his epistle, and gîve him the full benefit of all the publicity our columns will confer. At the same time we feel bound, if only out of respect to so eminent a con- troversialist to notice some portions of his letter. He complains that we were angry at his " poaching upon what somebody considers "his special preserve." The metaphor would be apt did it apply. The Courier &nbsp; has no interest beyond that of the general public in the settlement of the Bridge attempt to thrust himself upon ground already occupied by others. The gentle- men whose design was selected-the com- petitors who were asked to submit creden- tials for the part of carrying that design into effect-these are the persons whose rights MR. FITZ...

INSURANCE COMPANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Brisbane Courier — 15 April 1864
INSURANCE COMPANIES. WE take the following extracts from an article on this subject from the Times of August 31st, 1863, thinking that they will be read with interest at the present time by many of those who have suffered by the late fire, and who have claims upon the Insurance Companies :– "A Fire Insurance Company may, if they &nbsp; please, send their surveyor to ascertain that the &nbsp; &nbsp; goods they guarantee are of the value placed upon them. The first precaution they always &nbsp; take, the second is never taken. They insure against the event of death or fire, and the health of the person insured does influence their calculations, while the value of the goods in- sured has no important in their arithmetic. In both cases they bet a sum certain against the event and they calculate their odds. If the event fairly happens, they ought to pay. It can be of no consequence in such a calculation – although it may be an element of proof as to the fa...
