WINE MAKING. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
WINE MAKING. NO. I. NOTWITHSTANDING the heavy hailstorms and the destruction of a large quantity of fruit in early spring, we believe the grape crop of the present season is not only the heaviest but the best yet grown in this colony. The cheap rate at which the fruit is now selling, and the gorged state of the limited market for it, point to wine making as the only outlet. Mr. Lade, of Sur renden, has abundantly prored tbFpracticabitity of this industry. The fouowing treatise on the subject, which we take from the Adelaide Observer, is as good a guide as any we hare yet seen on the subject, and has the merit of being available for the present season : Translations raox Da. Qtrror'a Work ok Visa Culture astd WixraAxnre. The Hon. C. H. Bagot, who in bis travels on the Continent devoted special attention to vine culture, there met and recognised the merit* of Dr. Guyot's well-known work on the subject. For the information of his fellow-colonists he translated several of the most impor...
The Farm & the Garden. INTRODUCTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
The Farm & the Garden. INTRODUCTORY. IN the prospetus issued by the proprietor of The Queenslander it "is stated that special attention will be devoted in the columns of the new journal to matters com- ing under tho designation of agriculture, whether, pertaining to the labors and inter ests of tho wool, beef, mutton, or pork grower, the farmer, or the gardener, under the belief that surh a course would add to the best interests of the colony, and make the paper welcome to those he has every desire to serve. We are fully aware of the many diffi culties to be contended with in giving de tails for the cultivation &lt;»f any given item, whether of mercantile value, grain, vege tables, or grasses, or the conversion of either of these into animal substances, milk, or butter, without au acquaintance with individual circumstance—often as varying as the places in which the operations are conducted. We believe that no one man, whatever his traiuing or experience, is cap able ...
OPERATIONS FOR FEBRUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
OPERATIONS FOR FEBRUARY. DURING an ordinary season, the beginning of February would be a busy time with the agri-&lt;*> culturists of Queensland, as now the summer crop of maize should be well above ground, and be4p*ivrng a first visit from the hoe. Owing to the drought few are so far advanced this season, those located on the seaboard being the only exceptions of which we have heard. With the heat at present existing it were almost use less to put seed in the ground ; a more advant ageous course is to get as much land as possible into condition, as it is almost impossible the rain now falling to the northward should pass without paying us a visit—the pi'evailing winds of Feb. ruary, N.E. and S.W., and the usual run of weather for some years past, giving vis e*ery reason to hope such will bo the case. In case the ojxn-air work of summer and autumn has to be hurried through with during this month and March an extra working might be given to ground intended for potatoes. Th...

The Veterinarian. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
The Veterinarian. UNDER this head we propose from time to time to give our readers a brief and popular description of the more common diseases of domesticated animals, and the most simple and approved means to be adopted for their proven tion and cure. We anticipate that this subject will be highly interesting and instructire to our farmers and stockowners, themarjority of whom are at the present time at a loss what to do in cases of sickness umongst their stock. Being placed beyond the n»ch of veterinary skill, in many instances the lives of valuable animals arc jeopardised by being entirely dependent on the suggestions of amateur veterinary sur geons, whose knowledge of disease and what will mend it may extend so far as to enable them to prescribe " gin and pepper" for every in ternal ailment, there being, to the best of their knowledge, only two complaints to which the horse is liable—namely, gripe* and stoppage of water. That many animals are " spirited away," will be doubted by...

A SATISFACTORY INTERVIEW. SCENE.— L and W- ks Office, or thereabouts. M-r seated at a table deeply engaged in official matters. To him enters a clerically clothed per- sonage, rotund in figure, and orotund in voice, and having a grave and grey aspect. M r. —Well, old man, what brings you hen ? No more loans, you know; I told you that last time you came. C C. P. — (places on tlte table a copy of tie Cockier containing a paragraph aneat "Ministerial Changes," and points to it with a solemn air) —I did not ex pect this from you. Tis the unkindest cut of all. M r.— What had I to do with it, man ? If your neighbors are sharper than you are in getting information, how can I help it ? We are getting on very satis factorily with the rail C. C. P. —Pardon me if I say that I do not admit myself to be sharper—l mean leu sharp, thaii my neighbors. I did hope, however, that the services I hare rendered from time to time to the Government might be considered, especially on the part of one who is,...

IPSWICH DISTRICT COURT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. Yours, A SUITOR. SIR,—When in the name of goodness is the Registrar of the Ipswich branch of the District Court coming to open his office? The Court is fixed for the 26th February. There must be twelve days' notice before a summons is return able. There are hundreds waiting to be issued and no office open. The bailiff will never be able to serve half of them. This is very bad management. Who is responsible ?-
MAURITIUS. (From the Overland Commercial Gazette, November 7.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
MAURITIUS. (From the Overland Commercial Gazette, November 7.) THE proportion of the Government expendi-&lt;*> ture to the value of our exported and only production was ten years ago as one to ten; it will be this year as one to five! There is reason for n newness in this state of things. Our Oorerament has been placed on a footing as if a gradual increasing production was ex pected ; instead of which, production has of late yean rather decreased. We wonder no warning roioe was heard in the Legislative Council; for unless we are much favored by fortune we shall find this drain on the resources of the colony become more serums hereafter than at present. An abundant crop and full prices do much to make us fbrffet the contributions we indirectly pay to Government, but if no better chance attend* ns next year than this, the sources of revenue will dimmish, and we shall be expoalft to new taxation or a reduction in the expendi ture. Previously there was much activity in the su...
JAMAICA. DESPATCH OF THE LIEUT.-GOVERNOR TO THE COLONIAL-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
JAMAICA. DESPATCH OF THE LIEUT.-GOVERNOR TO THE COLONIAL-OFFICE. A SUPPLEMENT to the Gazette was issued on Saturday night, containing a despatch from Governor Eyre to Mr. Secre-&lt;*> tary Cardwell, giving an official account of the " most serious and alarming insurrec- j tion of the negro population" in the colony. I The despatch gives an account of the origin J of the rising, and the first step of insurrec- I tion, on Saturday, the 7th October, when \ an effort was made by a powerful body of ; negroes to rescue a black man, who was j on trial before the justices. Warrants were issued for the apprehension of twenty eight of the principal persons concerned in ■ the disturbance. i Upon the arrival of the police at the settle ment where the parties lived (called "Stony ; Gut," and about three or four miles from Morant Bay), a shell was blown, and the negroes collected in large numbers, armed with guns, cutlasses, pikes, and bayonets. They caught ; and ill-treated three of t...
INDIA. PROPOSED SCHEME OF EASTERN POSTAL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
INDIA. PROPOSED SCHEME OF EASTERN POSTAL SERVICE. We take the following extracts from an article in which the Bombay Times propounds a new scheme of postal intercourse with India:— For the once a week mail to Bombay. steel- built steamers, of 3000 torn and 1000 horse power, ere suggested. It will be seen that, while Galle will occupy a very secondary position if this scheme should be adopted, Trincomatic will become the centre of tho great Eastern lines. The changes which seem most likely to meet the requirements of the general Eastern mail service, and of trading conTenience combining those great public objects with prospect of fair return on the capital employed, may be noted as follows:— 1. A weekly instead of a fortnightly serriot between Suez and Bombay. 2. The Bombay and China steamers to touch at Trincomalie to coal; to take in " overland" cargo and to start with the China mails from Madras. 3. The Australian moil should start from Calcutta instead of Galle, taking up the Eng...
IPSWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
IPSWICH. THE following items are taken from the Queensland Times of Saturday last, January 27:— After several weeks of comparatively cool and pleasant weather the heat has again set in. On Thursday and yostorday the rajs of the sun were very oppressive, and the dust was flying disagreeably in all directions. Apprehensions of further drought are now seriously enter tuned. Considerable dissatisfaction is felt at the non appearance in Ipswich of the Registrar of the District Court, the first sittings of whioh com mence on the 13th proximo. Without the Bsgisfear no proceedings can be instituted, and we learn that some siiitore, in order to avoid , delay, have been compelled to have recourse to the superior tribunal respecting claims which ought to bo heard in the lower court. It appeal's also that the Police Court have com mitted a man for larceny to the Supreme Court i* who ought to bo tried at the District Court, and this because the former holds its sittings first. A good deal of unc...
THE LOGAN. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
THE LOGAN. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 30. DURING the past week Mr. Arthur Pim has been round with a memorial, for signatures, to the hon. the Minister for Lands and Works, concerning the road from Baker's to Rafter's farm, for Eden's ferry and the Login, that wm surveyed last April or May, on the suggestion of a previous petition, which represented the route to be 3 or 4 miles shorter than the old road by Mr. Markwell's. The surrey, however, did not bear out that statement; and the rapid settlement sinoe that time of the Logan further down towards California Creek and the Albert junction, has rendered it absolutely necessary that, in order to treat all the settlers somewhat equally, and at the same time to make as good and as near a road as possible for all parties, it was necessary that the old road bo adhered to. ThArG-orernment, too, seem to hare something of this in view, for Slack's bridge has been com* menced; and it is hoped that the settlers on Lower Logan and in the pa...
THE ANNUAL DINNER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
THE ANNUAL DINNER. The annual dinner took place at the Royal Hotel, on the same evening. About forty gentlemen were present. Mr. Rawlins, M.P., occupied the chair, as president of the society, and Dr. Stacey the vice-chair, m rice-president. Several toasts wereproposed and were well responded to. Mr. W. H. Oroom, in the course of his address, in responding to the toast of "Suc cess to the Drayton and Toowoomba Agricul tural and Horticultural Bociety," stated that the society intended to offer this year a silver Challenge Cnp, valued at £60, for the best •ample of wheat grown on any part of the Dar ling Downs, to be won two years in succession by the same person before being declared the winner. The evening was pasted very pleasantly, and about 11 o'clock the compauy dispersed. The whole of the day's proceedings gave great satisfaction, and reflect much credit upon all parties concerned. May the third exhibition, of 1867, be enumlly as successful. Thb City of Brisbane, s., which sail...
County Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
County Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 28. THERE is nothing of importance to report from this district, everything remaining in pretty much the same state as at the date of my last communication. The weather has been most tantalising at times. Thick heavy clouds covering the iky, raising oar hopes of a' copious downfall, but passing over with a light misty shower, and then clearing off without the faintest indication of any immediate relief. It is gratifying to know that there will be at any rate some compensation in tbo present high price of corn for the lightneas of the yield o the spring crop. The autumn crop is not y*t j planted, the ground lacking the inoisturo indis- ■ pensablc. All other crops usually planted at this season are in abeyance at p4Bp>t from the same cause. We hare noticed one of the effect*, we sup pose, of the past bad seasons—the gradual] adoption of a system of farming based uporiH curtailment of expeaditure to the lowest possibl...

DALBY. (From the Herald, January 25.) MUNICIPAL. ELECTION. —It is very probable that there will be a lively contest for municipal honors at the approaching election. Two vacancies will occur, and the names of five gen- gen tlemen are mentioned as likely to be brought forward as candidates. The Mayor and Alder man Skelton are represented as not desirous of again coming forward. In the absence of the Mayor, who purposes visiting Brisbane, Alder man Gayler will act as his substitute at return ing officer.
