LAYING THE FOUNDATION STONE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OF ST. STEPHEN. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
LAYING THE FOUNDATION STOWS OP THE CATHOLIC CHURCH OF ST. STEPHEN. Before entering on a description of the above interesting event, it is necessary to state that the present church of St. Stephen, which was erected some sixteen years ago, is totally unsuited to the require ments of a Metropolitan Church, its founders having no conception of the destiny in store for their unimportant and neglected district of More ton Bay. From the arrival of his Lordship the Bishop, it was clear that the accommodation was insufficient for the con gregation, and that ss well as the temporary churches at Fortitude Valley and that about to be erected at South Brisbane, it would be well to erect a suitable and appropriate strnc turs on the St, Stephen's Reserve. The in flux of population fay means of emigration has so increased the body of Catholics who attend this church, that at present not onetwen tieth of their number can find accommoda tion within the walls of the old building, and Home better prov...
EPITOME. FRIDAY, December 18. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
EPITOME. Fbiday, December IS. UN Hie evening of Separation Day, a tea meeting was held in the United Methodist Free Church. Ann-street, to help in defray ing the building expenses of the structure. The Picnic to Oxley Creek, however, by members of the same denomination, inter fered somewhat with the anticipated at tendance. We were shown a letter from C. B. Whish, Esq., J. P_ or Oaklands, stating the circumstances of the death of a German named August Schwcnzle, who was drowned in the river on Snodav, 13th instant. According to the letter, it appears that deceased went into the river with some comrades to bathe. Being unable to swim, he was drawn down by the current, and notwithstanding tho exertions of a comrade — Christian Gross, — he was drowned. A magisterial enquiry was held on the fullowiogHonday — the day the body was recovered— at which O. B. Whish, Esq. presided. A verdict of accidental drown ing was returned. The D. D. Gazette has published a corre spondence on the subject...
CORONES'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
COBONEE'S INQUKST. Tki Coroner's Inquest on the body of Thomas Langen (drowned by coming into collision with the Steamer '?Williams,' while on board of a pant.) was continued on Saturday last. According to the evidence rendered, it certainly appears to us to have been one of those accidents which, all things considered, are unavoidable — notwithstand- ing the prompt execution of the judgment for the Tjnnxwe uf avbidine a. catastronhe. That the collision took place is evident, hut the fact of a steamer of the tannage of the ' Williams ' coming in contact with a punt without drawing her under, or smashing her to fragments, is a proof that her weigh had been stopped, and that her. officers had adopted — even if too late— the proper course to avoid an accident. A reason which may account for the proper measnres not being sooner adopted, may he found in the corres ponding evidence of all the witnesses, who represent the steamer, just prior to the acci dent, as rounding the point of Bulim...

ROCKHAMPTON. January 12. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
KOCKHAMPTON. ( PB0H OUB SPECIAL COBBESFONDENT.) Jauuary 12. Howeveb much the assertion may run counter to our egotism, we have all more or less aspiceof snperstition in our composi tion. This proposition will hardly need demonstration, if we take the trouble to analyze our own thoughts under the various incidents of daily life. Certainly we don't examine tbe entrails of birds for auguries of good or evil success in the future, but we are prone to argue instinctively divers issues from something very like omens. Perhaps our own minds take a coloringfrom surrounding circumstances : and as they are agreeable or disagreeable, so wo draw conclusions touching the enterprises on which we are about to be engaged. The influences which affected ns at the com mencement of successful labours are recol lected with a species of unction, and when analagnus influences present themselves as initials to our course of action, wo presume similar favourable issuts ; and what is this but superstition? — ...
GAYNDAH. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
GATNDAH. f Correspondent of Maryborough CkromeU.) A natural desire to know more about our diggings than I could possibly gather from mere desultory hear say, prompted me to visit die locality myself, that I might hea from the mouths of the men engaged, the present and probable results of their labors. After civing a description of the route and directing that travellers shonld be guided fay the higher marks on the ' ?narked tress,' he continues — Arrived on the diggings I lound nine men — the parry of six sent by the townspeople, two others who were prospect ing op and down the creek, and another who, after looking at the place, was going for his mate and the necessary took. &c. The principal, and in fact the only work done, was that by the party of six. and in deed most of this is merely in the way of preparation. They had bottomed two notes. «ach about fourteen. test deep, ana had ob tained about four or five ounces of gold. Having found that so mush of their time and hibo...
SPRINGSURE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
? ? SPEENGSUBE. i Comet Correspondent of Bulictin.} A Court of Petty Sessions was held this day. before Messrs. Gregson, Patten, Bichards, and Buchanan. After tha business of the Court was over, tha sale of town allotments took place. All the allotments offered, numbering fifty. were sold at prices varying from £4 Is. to ? £48 15s. per half-acre lot. At the close of the sale, more land being; required, a letter was written and signed to have more town and suburban allotments surveyed and put op for sale as soon as con venient. The letter was to be forwarded to the Government. Though the sale of our small inland town took place only to-day, still a population of over forty are fixed here already. There is a good opening here for a steady, temperate blacksmith, and a storekeeper or two, Springsure, Dec 21, 1863. . ? ^ ?

GLADSTONE. The correspondent of the Maryborough Cknmidc writes :— I am happy to say that the rumours I referred to in my last, of tho finding of monster nuggets on our diggings are verified 'by facto.

HORTICULTURAL SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
HOBTICULTUBAL SHOW. Thb Horticultural display at the Botanic Gardens, on Thursday last, was not so well attended as it otherwise would have been, owing to the unsettled state of the weather. But Mm exhibition mi worthy of the puna which bad been taken to make it a success ful enterprise. Every variety of fruit and flower — exotic and indigenous — which has hitherto been cultivated in the colonv. was on exhibition, and the illusion, so natural to an inexperienced settler, that the climate of Queensland is too hot to favor vegetable life, was most eloquently dispelled by the excellent variety which made up the exhibi tion. True, the visitor did not wander through lanes and corridors as in ' the Great Exhibition.' This was not a world wide competition entered into, to show the acme of progress and civilization ; it was a practical exhibition of the richness of the soil, and the enterprise of the founders of a new colony. To enumerate in brief: — A. J. Bookings, Esq., exhibited a variet...
IPSWICH. Thursday, January 15. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
IPSWICH. (FB0M ODE UTS COBBESrOKDEKT.) .Thursday, January 16. The weather just now in Ipswich is exces sively close and sultry, there is a kind of hazy mist falling, which in no way tends to cool tbe atmosphere. There is every ap pearance of a heavy fell, bnt still it is very slow in coming. Business is not as brisk at this season of the year as it ought to be, although the wool is coming down fast, yet there is not much stir. On Wednesday evening, a comfirmation was held bv tbe Right Bev. Dr. Tufnell at St. Paul's Church. Tbe attendance was small in consequence of the evening being wet. It is amongst the 'on dil' that the members of the Elocution Class intend in a short time to give another entertain ment, on' which occasion they will play the laughable farce ' Box and Cox,' together with some other good selections. We owe a debt of gratitude to these youug gentlemen for the amusement they afford us ; and if we encourage by fall houses, as on the last evening they played, we will i...

RELIGIOUS CEREMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 January 1864
RELIGIOUS CEREMONY. It is generally known among the Catholics of Brisbane that the Sisters of Mercy, who had hitherto occupied the cottages attached to St Stephen's Church, have, within the last few weeks, removed to a more central position. In their former residence, their labors vere necessarily confined to that por tion of the city in immediate vicinity to the &nbsp; church. Owing to a want of even ordinary accommodation, they felt their exertions very much crippled. These inconveniences made themselves more and more palpable each day, as is natural in such a rising com munity, and ended by forcing the Sisterhood to purchase a more roomy place for the scene of their labors. The house known as Adder ton, and lately occupied by Dr. Fullerton, was bought by the Sisters, and selected as the head quarters of their new Convent, known by the name of All-Hallows. Here the Sisterhood reside, and have opened a school for the education of the daughters of our more wealthy citizens. ...
FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 28 January 1864
FRANCE. The Emperor of tbe French has followed np his remarkable speech on the opening of the Chambers by an autograph letter to all tbe Sovereigns and Free Cities of Europe, fifteen in all, inviting them to send representatives tn the Congress to be held at Paris, for tbe puipose of considering the points on which the Treaty of Vienna has been iufrin^ed. and for adontinf mf»»iciin-tt with regard to present complications, best suited to secure general peace. He says that die Treaty of Vienna has been de stroyed, modified, misunderstood, or menaced' at all points, leading to duties without role, rights without tide, and pretensions with out restraint. That as he is the Sovereign, to whom ambitions projects are most attributed, he has it at heart by this frank aud loyal step to prove that his sole object is to arrive at die pacification of Europe without a stroke. This letter was received by Her Majesty the Queen, and three Cabinet Councils have been held to consider what answer shoul...
