DALBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

DALBY. THE following items of news are from the Dalby Herald of March 29:— Pleuro-pneumonia is fearfully prevalent in the neighborhood of Dalby. We hear that on a dairy farm a few miles from town the pro prietor has lost, through tbis disease, sixty head of cattle during the last three months ; and one carrier in town has lost eight working bullocks. The disease is not confined to cattle on the town reserve, but on some of the neighboring stations the number of deaths from this fearful malady has been great. The telegraph line to Roma has been cleared and the posts erected to within a very short dis tance of Condamine, and but awaits the stretch ing of the wire to give us communication with that township. Mr. Murfiekl, the contractor, expects to have the posts erected to Roma in •bout six weeks. Some delay»may, however, take place before the line is in full working order, in consequence of the wire not having yet arrived. The demand for land in the neighborhood of Dalby is something...

CHURCH OF ENGLAND, WICKHAM TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

CHURCH OF ENGLAND, WICKHAM TERRACE. THE annual meeting of the members of this church was held on Tuesday evening. The Rov. T. Jones presided as chairman; and there were a number of parishioners in attendance. The Chaibxax stated that this was the usual Easter meeting, conrened for the purpose of passing the accounts and electing churchwardens for the year. The first business would be to elect two auditors to examine the financial state ment which had been drawn up by the church wardens for the last year. Mr. Douglas, M.L.C., said that as one of the churchwardens he produced the statement of accounts, and he would take advantage of the opportunity to refer to the condition of the church's affairs since last Easter meeting. Easter Tuesday occurred rather earlier this year than last year, so that while the churchwardens had to pay a whole year's expenses they had not the benefit of a full year's rerenue. In 1865 Easter Tuesday fell on the 18th April, and this year on the 3rd of April. ...

UP THE RANGE BY THE "LINE." [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

UP THE RANGE BY THE "LINE." [COMMUNICATED.] WHATEVER the opponents of the 3ft. 6in. gauge may have had to say against it, those who have supported it will be entitled to "do" a small amount of crowing when the first few trains hare safely travelled up and down the Range. A very up and down sort of place that same Range is, as the writer can testify from personal experience; but to the majority of your readers this will be like telling them that the ascent of Mont Blanc is as toilsome as erer; or that the Peter Botte mountain ehould only be attempted by sailors or gymnasts. Climbing is first-rate exercise—for those who like it; and an untutored person might look upon chamois-hunting as an agreeable amuse ment, so far as the looking-on part is concerned; but commend us to the Minister for Works who will undertake to "follow the line" up the Range in its present state. The engineers, of course, are " used to it." One of them, to whom we shall presently refer, does the chamois business ...

PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND HIS OPPONENTS. (From the Pall Mall Gazette) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND HIS OPPONENTS. (From the Pall Mall Gazette) PROBABLY few statesmen or rulers, even if statesmen by profession and rulers by hereditary right, ever had so hard a task set before them as that to which the acci- dental President of the United States is now bending all the energies of his vigorous but uncultivated mind. He has to restore peace after a civil war unexampled in the strength and bitterness of the angry pas sions it evoked. He has to reorganize in dustry, government, production, and pros perity—or at least to pave the way for their reorganization—through a vast country in which all previously existing social rela tions have been utterly abolished and re versed, and all old administrative agencies have been east down. He has to re cover a thoroughly exhausted territory as rapidly as possible from an ex haustion which, if it lasts, threatens famine and destitution to incalculable num bers. He has to reconstruct a Union severed by one of the fiercest convu...

IMMIGRATION BOARD ENQUIRY. AN enquiry was held by the above Board on Wednesday afternoon, into certain complaints made by the doctor and passengers of the ship Wandrahm, from Germany. The members of the Board present were Messrs. Darvall, M'Don- nell, and Heath, and Drs. Purdie and Temple. The Hon. J. Douglas, ex officio member of the Board, was also present. Mr. Darvall occupied the chair. The Chairman stated that since the last meeting of the Board a very voluminous docu- ment in German, containing various complaints made by the passengers per ship Wandrahm, had been placed in his hands. He had had the document translated into English, and would, for the sake of brevity, confine himself to reading the principal heads of the complaints, which were to the following effect:—That the water and provisions were bad and deficient in quantity; that the provisions were badly cooked ; that the weights and measures used in weighing them out were short; that the passengers when sick could not...

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

News of the Week. AT the time of our going to press, there was every appearance of a change in, the weather. During the evening, several showers fell, and clouds were gathering over the city. Tim inspection of cabs, cars, and hackney carnages, which was to take place on Monday next by the Mayor, has been postponed for a week. Wx are requested by the Secretary of the Brisbane Hospital to acknowledge the re ceipt of a quantity of firewood from Mr. B. Olirer, Queen-street. Okx of the best specimens of colonial work manship we hare ever seen is now ex hibited in Mr. L. Machefert's shop, Queen-street. It is an emu's egg, mounted on a pedestal of frosted silver, the design of which is a fern tree. On the lid there is a very neatly-executed and true model of an •mv, likewise composed of silver. The design and workmanship are both Mr. Machefert's own. Apart from the intrinsic costliness of the materials of which it is composed, the orna ment is of great value, from the fact that it was made...

On being called upon by his pursuers to surrender he threw down his arms. He was brought before tbe Magistrates to-day, and remanded until Wednesday.

CAPTURE OF MACPHERSCN, THE "WILD SCOTCHMAN." (From the Maryborough Chronicle, April 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

CAPTURE OF MACPHERSON, THE "WILD SCOTCHMAN." (From the Maryborough Chronicle, April 4.) THE capture of Alpin Macpherson, the bush- ranger, generally known as the "Wild Scotch- man," was reported in Maryborough on Satur- day morning last from the telegraph station at Golden Fleece, by a telegram from Mr. A. H. Brown, Gin Gin, to the Police Magistrate, re- questing him to send on two constables to that station to take the prisoner to Maryborough. The constables were immediately despatched, and reached Gin Gin late the same night, re- turning without delay to Maryborough with their prisoner, where they arrived on the evening of Monday last. A correspondent sends us the following account of the capture :— " I suppose that the world will be wondering how the " Wild Scotchman " has been taken : the affair is simple enough in itself, and, of course, not by the police. A man answering to his description had been seen on the morning of the 30th ultimo, and had been inquiring for a road which...

THE LINE FROM HELIDON TO BIGGE'S CAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

THE LINE FROM HELIDON TO BIGGE'S CAMP. The disciples of that respectable female, Rebecca, would have very little trouble in walking off with the "toll-bar" on the Range, and demolishing the humpy of the gate keeper. The board which is supposed to show the tariff of tolls has assumed an aged and venerable appearance, just as if the rail- way had long been threatened, and the pike keeper was about to cut his throat, or retire into private or public (house) life. By the way why should this be the only toll-bar in the colony ? Our "paternal government " con-   siderately supplies the public with roads—where the public can get them, but no attempt appears ever to have been made to initiate the "road   trust" style of doing business. Why should people have to pay for coming down or going up a questionable road on the range, when they can travel at ten miles an hour along a first-rate road between Brisbane and Ipswich without paying? After all, the Range, going up...

TOWNSVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

TOWNSVILLE. FROM the Cleveland Bay Herald, we (Rock- hampton Bulletin) perceive that a public meet- ing was held at Townsville on Tuesday, the 13th instant, to take into consideration the proposed vote for the electric telegraph line to the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Chair was taken by the Police Magistrate, Mr. J. Gordon. A motion proposed by Mr. J. M. Black, and seconded by Mr. Sutherland, affirmed the desirability of the line of telegraph to the Gulf being carried by way of Townsville, Dalrymple Township, and the Flinders River; instead of via Cardwell and   the Valley of Lagoons. The motion was passed, and a committee was appointed to draw up a memorial to his Excellency, showing the great advantages of the line proposed over that by way of Cardwell. Robert Towns, Esq., who at the time was visiting Townsville, was requested to present the me- morial to the Governor, on his way to Sydney. With reference to the respective routes, the Herald says there can be no doubt of...
