Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

Odds and Ends. THOSE who show envy incur censure. "THESE are stirring times," as the spoon said to the saucepan. WHY is the letter t like your nose? Because it goes before you (u) What is that, putting his eye out, leaves nothing but a nose ? Noise. When can donkey; be spelt with one letter ? When it's U! Nothing personal meant. Why is B like a hot fire ? Because it makes oil boil.—Why is C like a schoolmistress ? Be cause it forms lasses into classes.—Why is D like a squalling child ? Because it makes ma mad. The husband who devoured his wife with kisses found afterwards that she disagreed with him. As a man drinks he generally grows reckless; in his case the more drams the fewer scruples. He who can find nobody that will credit a word he says, may fairly boast that he has no creditors. The Japanese say, the tongue of woman is her sword, and she never lets it grow rusty for want of using. You may gather a rich harvest of knowledge by reading, but thought is the winnowing machine.

C] January 29.

A HAU-HAU PA TAKEN, AND TWELVE NATIVES KILLED. DEATH OF CAPTAIN HUSSEY. (From the Howke's Bay Herald, December 30.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

A HAU-HAU PA TAKEN, AND TWELVE NATIVES KILLED. DEATH OF CAPTAIN HUSSEY. (From the Hawke's Bay Herald, December 30.) Captain Biggs arrived yesterday, overland from Wairoa, bringing news of hostilities having commenced; of the first of the enemy's fortifi- cations having been carried by assault; and of ten of its defenders having been killed. Unfor- tunately, this success was not achieved without the loss of that gallant officer, Captain Hussey, of the Taranaki Military Settlers, who was shot dead while leading his men to the assault—the fatal bullet having entered his spine. Two friendly natives were also amongst the slain, and two men of the colonial forces were seriously wounded, corporal Hawes and private Hollings- worth, both of the T.M.S., and both doing well. On Saturday, the 23rd instant, Major Fraser and force under his command left Wairoa, the force advancing the same day to within a few miles of the enemy's position, and remained there till Monday. Marched early on that day...

FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 1. A NEW year was ushered in this morning by a number of the "navvics," who perambulated the streets (?) with such musical instruments as were obtainable at the camp, and the "musi-... ...camp, the musi- cianers" at they arc often called, were ably sup- ported by vocal aid. The sun rose upon a brilliant summer day, and each and all seemed bent on enjoyment. Almost before sunrise, groups of "navvies" might be seen scattered all over the camp discussing the programme, when it was arranged that a cricket match should take place— Brickmakers r. All comers. A foot race and horse race, each for £5 a side, was also made, and with the exception of a slight irritability of temper displayed by one party on the ground, everything passed off   amicably. In the cricket match some very fair play took place, Harbour and Kelly earning 35 and 20 in very short time. Of course, it is**   not to be expected that the bowling was ...

GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) AFTER some interval I again resume my cor- respondence, without, however, having any startling intelligence to communicate. The most important incident, so far as this   neighborhood in concerned, which has occurred for some time, took place on last Wednesday, at the opening of the bridge over a deep and dan- gerous gully called Coolen Greek, about half a mile from the town on the road to Leyburn. This bridge, together with a culvert adjoining, involving fully as much, if not more, labor and material, have been in course of construction since May last under the superintendence of Mr. Gibson, Government contractor, and both the works now completed are remarkably alike for the excellence of the workmanship and the timber employed in their erection. A number of the inhabitants made a holiday of the occa- sion, and contributed by cheering and all man- ner of joyful demonstrations to express their approval of the br...

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

News of the Week. ON January 26, Government took possession of the new Immigration Barracks in William- street; and thus for the future those who arrive in this colony as immigrants will have secured to them more civilized quarters than those apportioned to them hitherto. The building on the north side of the river, used up to the present time by the single male immigrants, will now be occupied by that "very important" functionary, the Government Storekeeper. Those persons who are entitled to vote at the election of members of the Legislative Assembly, and whose names are not on any electoral roll, are reminded that they must send in their claims on or before the 1st of February. As many applications could not be entertained last year, owing to informalities, we subjoin the form prescribed by the "Registration of Electors' Amendment Act," passed during the last session of Parliament:—" To the Clerk of Petty Sessions in the Electors 1 District of —, I hereby give you notice that I cl...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBUARY 10, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBUARY 10, 1866. THE triumphant success which has at-<*> tended the great International Exhibitions in London, Paris, and Dublin, has demon-<*> strated the value of this "institution"—for such it has already become. Our distance from the centres of civilization cats us off from one of the advantages to be derived from these exhibitions; we cannoj have the pleasure of seeing them, and thus knowing what the world can produce. The other benefit, that of being seen, we can have by the expenditure of a little time and trouble. That this is a benefit none will doubt who remember the amount of attention that was directed to Queensland by its exhibits in London in 1862. Mr. J. G. Knight, of Victoria, no mean authority in these mat ters, says that " These great periodical festivals of industry and progress " are now understood to be the best me " drams for giving world-wide celebrity to " all useful productions. The life-blood of " suc...

ADDRESS TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

ADDRESS TO OUR READERS. IT is usual, on issuing the First Number of a new Journal, to say something of the prin-<*> ciples on which it will be conducted, and the objects which it is proposed to attain. In com- pliance with this wise and time-honored custom we will briefly state the nature of the work we hare planned. Our first desire is to render this paper what' its name implies, a steady adroeate of the general Interests of the colony. There has, for some time past, been a great want of a standard colonial journal, not only to contain a record of local events, hut to take a com prehensive view, and to give a faithful chronicle, of all matters affecting the interests of the whole colony. This want the Queensland* is designed to rapps, and if experience and assiduity, combined with the use of the most extensive resources, can command success, the undertaking must prore a prosperous one. All nissses of the community wfll find in our columns fair representation, for howe...

Hither, my dog! we now are free; Our flock is circling'neath yon tree; And this our noonday Best shall be. What! thy fond paw upon my breast! Well, well—thou lov*st me!—let it rest: With such affection all were blest! And shall such Feeing unpass'd be, O friend, so faithful and so free ?— Thy heart's pulsations all for me I Not so:—Thy kindly eye doth more An artless song, though mean it prove: Few lines are lasting as thy love! Thine was no lot 'midst wealth or state { Nor would thou it had been thy fate To bark beside some lordly gate. A bushman, on a sorry hack; A wight whose wealth's slung at his back; Such men will ne'er thy friendship lack. With voice clear as a dinner-bell, Thou wagg'st the wand'rer to our cell; Saint Bernard, sure, had lov*d thee well! Nor be thy shepherd-skill unsung: A swifter foot or merrier tongue Never o'er mountain...

BEAUTIES OF NATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

BEAUTIES OF NATURE. R. Hark, the Mavis gently sings Perched on yonder lofty tree, See the lark up heavenward wing, Warbling a sweet lullaby. See the swallow skim the ground, Twittering on its hurried flight; Hark, the owlets mournful sound In the lonesome hours of night. See the lambkins on the hill tv Prancing round so full of glee; Hark, the murmering of the rill As it journeys to the sea. Hark, the roaring of the deep, Emblem of the soul within— Bometimoa in a placid sleep, Then swelling with tumuttoous din. See the seasons of the year, Spring, the first-born, meek and mild. Quick green garments doth prepare For sweet Summer, nature's child. Then comes mellow autumn forth, With her fields of golden grain; Winter winds from east and north Laying desolate the plan. The seal* brood in depths of sea, And the songsters of the wood. Even the little humming bee, Verily prove God's works are good. Everything that he has made, That lives in ocean, earth, or air, Verdant fields and forest ...
