Scientific and Statistical. IRON IMPROVED WITH TITANIUM has been tested for tensile strength, and has stood a strain equal to forty-seven tons per square inch; and, in puddling furnaces fettled with the ore, the fettling has in some instances lasted a month without renewal, the iron produced being of uniform good quality. These are extremo'cases, but indicate the value of the use of the ore. OiTOEf.—Oxygen was obtained for the first time in a state of purity by Eck de Sulx bach, a wandering alchymist, in 1489, by heat ing red oxide of mercury. But in those days the means of collecting gases were unknown. The pneumatic trough (an invention usually attributed to Priestley, who merely used mer cury for the first time instead of water), by which gases may be collected, was invented and described by the poor Parisian atudent, Maitrel d' Element, who published a pamphet upon it in 1719. * * Thb Glactbb Tkbobt of Agabsiz.—Pro fessor Agassis has found in Brazil confirmation of his glacier t...

Correspondence. We are compelled to hold over the communications of several correspondents till next publication. C.C.—We have little faith in any tooth powder, and, therefore cannot recommend one. The cheapest, safest, and best " lotion" of our acquaintance is plenty of soap and water and a moderately stiff tooth-brush rigorously ap plied every morning.

It is best when fresh, and we are happy to learn that Mr. Pettigrew of the Brisbane saw-mills, has the proper appliances to ensure a large and continuous supply. We will endeavor to comply with your wish, by publishing, in our next issue, a variety of ways of cooking maize-meal and "biting it into bread.

CALEDONIAN GAMES. For the Queen's birthday (May 24), the Caledonian Society is already in the field. As usual, the games are to take place in the Botanical Gardens, Brisbane, and will consist of dancing, running, bag-pipe playing, and the usual games o' Auld Scotland. Handsome as the prizes were on previous years, the amounts have been increased for the noming tournament. A very Urge gathering is anticipated. Sib Patrick is no more. We allude to a favorite race horse, the property of Mr. Ogilvie. The animal died (so says the Queens land Times) on Thursday hut from strangulation, caused by a ball being adminis tered, which stuck in the animal's throat, and could not be extracted.

Sporting Items. CRICKET. THE match between the Victoria Club and the Government Printing Office, which was commenced on the 16th March, was finished on Saturday afternoon. Only five of the Victoria Eleven (or rather eight, for that was the num ber that played in the first innings) were on the ground. The Government Printing Office scored 42 in their first, and 47 in their second innings, and the Victoria 49 in their first in nings. The latter, therefore, were only 40 runs behind, but when the fourth wicket fell they had only obtained 36 runs, or four short of the requisite number.

DENILIQUIN STOCK REPORT. Friday evening, March 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
DENILIQUIN STOCK REPORT. Friday evening, March 30. Our latest advices of the state of the pasture throughout the Riverine district are scarcely so encouraging as those previously received. Whilst it is agreed that the February rain, did February an enormous amount of general good, there are places that were injured by them. The old long grass in parte of the back country on the Mun rumbidgee waa in some instances being made available by wells being aunk in their midat; but the feed being dry aa a chip, the rain waa sufficient to beat it down, but not enough fell to make the young grass grow in abundance. To the north-east there are again complaints of feed, and nearer home we have the same cry. Not that there is fear of starvation, but lambing time is approaching, and anxiety is felt to get the ewes into good condition, and have some succulent feed for the mothers and their young. Residents on the Warrego are satisfied with their abundance of grass, but complain of their present rat...
Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
Commercial Intelligence. THE Customs Returns, made up to the close of the quarter, from January 1st to March 31st, show the total imports to this port to amount to £576,354, while the exports are equal to a sum of £984,483, or £108,129 in excess of the imports. This may be accounted for by the fact that the greatest proportion of the staple exports of the colony are shipped daring the first and the last quarters of the year. The revenue derived from duties paid on the imports of dutiable goods during the period above men tioned, amounts to £32,112 Is 4d. The only export duty, that in gold, realised a sum of £112 10s 6d. The dues paid by shipping, show a total of £1318 13s 6d, of which sum £679 6s 9d, paid to the Pilotage, and £639 6e 9d to the Light Dues account.
