ON THE SEWERAGE OF TOWNS. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 30 August 1861
ON TIHE SEWERAGE OF TOW?VS. We extract from the Guadioan the following paner by W. Coote, Esq., O.E., which was lately read before the members of the Philosophcal Society of Queensland by DI. Barton : There is scarcely any provision more necessary for the pernlanent health of the inhabitants of a town, and scarcely any one more generally neglected, than that of cflficient sewerage. [do not mean drainage, which isa distinct matter. From not keeping bthis in view much confusion has arisen; and from attempting to combine both in one system, great evils have often followed. In .elimates like ours, seh evils would be greatly multiplied, and hence the necessity for a clear apprehension of our requirements, and the provision to be made for 9sem. In founding a city in ancient times, the water supply and the sewerage were thought matters of almost eqg?ua. Inoment. E~very school-boy has read of the Clo~el Maxima of Rome, which was but one amongst almost innumerable instances oflthe care which...

BRITISH EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 30 August 1861
BRITISH EMIGRATIOn. (From the S6pey Morning Herald.) So long as we depend mainly, as we do at present, for inr increase of population on arrivals froin other conntries, the emigrating power ofEhe mother country, from which we chiefly draw our sanpplies, will elways be a matter almost of as much interest on this side of the globe saoon the other. Whether the population of Great Britain will ever, like that of France, cease to multiply a, d replenish the earth, it is impossible to predict: but there are no signs at present of anyancha consammation. The fertility of the Anglo-Saxon race indicates no seymptoms ofexhanstion. Not only in tin olonies it has founded, where there is ample roomeal and verg' enugh to spread, but even in the denelypaclked 'eradle of the race, where population presses hard upon the Mreans of astibsistence the numbers steaily increase. Thegreatj?opnlafioni of the earth at the present time are Aaiitie,wi~ma ife?ior races. But whenPre lookat the ae tierd rrilerv in...

THE ENGLISH MAIL. MAGNITuDE OF WE EmiserIo BUTLDLNOG OF 1862.-The Pimes of 3rd June states that a visit to the site of the proposed building is the best way to get a fair ideaof the immense extent uf the intended structure, and also of the rapidity with which it is being raised. A fortnight ago, andthesurveyors were only marking out the ground, and a line of little -sticks, of different colours, was the sole aid to tracing the plan of the building. Now all the con crete foundations have been laidandhardened,and the walls of the picture gallery are already some fifteen feet high. The first impression on entering the works is that you are in a hopground of colossal proportions, so bare looks theflat enclosure, with its hundreds of scaffold poles, set in lines of such length that the furthest off seems a mere twig. Stray men are at work here and there removing gravel, or setting broad slabs ofstone on little cubes of brickwork. Thereare really some 800 employed in all, but they are los...
WIDE BAY AND BURNETT. [Newspaper Article] — Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 30 August 1861
WIDE BAY AND BUR·NETT. THE BURNETT Rlve?.-Government have ordered Mr. Sheridan, the Harbour Master at Wide Bay, to visit the mouth of the Burnett and to report'upon its capabilities as a shipping port. The Arg?ue, referring to this fact, gives the following descriptibun of the mouth of the Burnett:-" The river empties itself into Hervey's Bay:--At the north side, its mouth, which looks towards Sandy Cape (the most northern point of Great Sandy Island), is an oblong island, the one narrow end of which runssout to sea, the other up the river-not across it. About three? quarters of a mile, and due east, from its mouth, is a sandbank extending about a mile and a half towards the opposite white cliffs of Sandy Island, so that the entrance to the river is on the west side, near its right bank. There is no bar at the entrance; Mr. Burnett was in error when he said there was: There is as it were, a rocky wall, of nearly semi circular form, binding the land on the south, and extending up the...

GRAMMAR SCHOOL MEETING. Losn before thie hour appointed (8 o'clock) on Tuesday evening last for the opening of the Grammar School meeoting, crowds of people might be seen hurrying to the Court-house from all directions, and at a quater to eight that building was crowded teesutfocation, tile passages, doors, and windows, being oemplet, ly blocked up,-we noticed one individual who, apparently despairing of obtaining sitting or stand ing room anywhere else, get into toe dock. The meeting, we are'sorry to say, was certainly not chasracterised by that snirit of decorum anld order which we have hithlerto seen displayed at public meetings in this town. Indeed, the powers of the Clhairman were several times taxed to thile utmost to maintain what little order tihere was. There could not have been far short of fGO persons present, seeing that notwithlstanding the large numben who were fortunate enough to obtain access to the in torior of the building tlhere were a great many persons compelled...
