FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

FRANCE. In the French Senate the Marquis De Boissy, in a long address, violently denounced England. His remarks were received with general tokens of disapproba- tion. The time for withdrawing the troops from Mexico is not yet definitely fixed. The Senate, in reply to the Imperial speech, stated that France cared nothing for the haughty menaces made by the people of the United States. At Bucharest a large body of troops in vaded Prince Couza in his palace, and made him a prisoner. They then forced him to sign his abdication. The throne has since been offered to Count Flanders. He, however, refused it. The new Ministry is firmer than the last. A rupture has occurred between Russia and His Holiness the Pope. France, Austria, Spain, and Belgium, have each offered the Pope one thousand men, should he require them.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

AMERICA. Sir Edward Everest has been retained by the American Government to prosecute Jeff. Davis. It is stated that the fee is to be 20,000 dollars. The President has received numerous deputations of colored men, who are urging their right to enjoy the benefit of suffrage. The President has said, in reply, that although always an advocate for the free dom of the Southern negroes, he did not consider them fit to enjoy a franchise which would likely lead to a war of races. He further advised the people forming the deputations to encourage emigration amongst their people. The House of Representatives have passed a bill giving negro suffrage in the district of Columbia. The bill was carried by a majority of 118 to 52. This was looked upon as a great triumph by the Abolitionists. i A plot to release Jefferson Davis from | imprisonment has been discovered, and in consequence extra guards have been placed around the prison. The French Minister at Washington has intimated that it is the in...

A vote of confidence in Mr. Groom was car* ried unanimously.

REID'S CREEK DIGGINGS. (From a correspondent of the Burnett Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

REID'S CREEK DIGGINGS. (From a correspondent of the Burnett Argus.) In your issue of the 17th instant is a report concerning these gold fields, which I think is rather calculated to mislead the public; I there-<*> fore give you a correct version. There are several parties, most of them Chinamen, working here, and none of them are at the present time making more than rations, for the creek on which we are at work is the only one in the neighborhood where there is any water, and this creek has been thoroughly worked out. We are hanging on here until we can get rain, when we shall go to some of the neighboring creeks where the precious metal is more abundant; for there are plenty of places in the immediate neighborhood where there is good payable gold, but not a drop of water; in fact, we have had no rain up in these regions for the last eighteen months, save a passing thunderstorm. The washing dirt is too poor to pack, and so we are just going on from hand to mouth. We a...

MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

MARYBOROUGH. WE have files from Maryborough to April 11. The following items of news are taken from the Chronicle :— A magisterial inquiry was held yesterday, April 4, touching the death of Mrs. Mary Preddy, who was found dead the previous evening at her residence, Ellena-street. The evidence of Edward Preddy set forth that he left her in her usual health about 4 o'clock, and on returning about half an hour after he saw her lying on the floor, but took no notice of it, she having been lately often in the same posi tion through intoxication, and he went out again. About an hour after this, finding her still on the floor, he told her to get up, and re ceiving no answer, he got a light, when he found her face in a little pool of blood. He immediately sent for Dr. Palmer, who, on his arrival, pronounced her dead. Dr. Palmer de posed that she had died from suffocation, caused by hemorrhage, from the rupture of one of the blood vessels of the lungs, which rupture had been acceler ted by t...

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, April 6.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, April 6.) THE absence of rain in this district, and the drying effects of sun and wind, have made tbe grass so perfectly inflammable that the slightest spark sets it off in a blaze at once. Bush fires are very numerous at present, and although it is a very pretty sight to see a forest all ablaze, it is nevertheless far from agreeable for the squat ters to know that the grass and young plants are all being consumed by the fire. A few storms would do much good at present, and would, we believe, prevent much more harm accruing to the district when the winter sets in; any injury to the grass at present must necessarily be reduplicated in the cold season, and we therefore hope to see some good showers shortly. We have heard that there hare been several heavy rains in various parts of the district lately, but they have been altogether partial. The river is also in need of refreshing, the water at present being impregnated with a sedgy slime produced partl...

DALBY. (From the Herald, April 5.) THE WEATHER.—Great apprehension is felt in the neighborhood for the safety of stock during the coming winter. Already the grass is eaten and dried up—dried to an extent that up—dried renders it comparatively innutritions—and, un less we hare a heavy rainfall very shortly, none of any description will be available for the win ter. {The country around is bare and parched, intersected with a network of cracks and fissures of a dangerous nature. Carriers are loud in their complaints of the scarcity of grass between here and Toowoomba, while below the Main Range the country is described as being in the most wretched state—no grass whatever. We hare not had rain during the hut three months —three months of fierce hot weather—and it is impossible to predict from the present state of the atmosphere that we shall be blessed with a " pluvial visitation" for some time to come. The sky continues to be prorokingly clear, not a cloud to be seen ; and the dust, w...

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WE have had several dull heavy mornings during the past week, with an occasional drizzle or Scotch mist of some few minutes' duration. Sometimes we have been led to anticipate a anticipate good continuation, but as the days hare ad vanced, the clouds have dispersed before the sun, and our hopes of rain have been scattered by the midday sun. Many of the gullies and creeks, which the " oldest bushmen" scarcely ever remember to have seen in a dry state, have within the put few weeks entirely failed, and cattle have suf fered most severely in consequence. Several proprietors have had to drive their cattle many miles for water, and feed on the Ipswich and Dalby roads has become » thing of the put. Oar carriers most be heavy consumers of maize during the coming winter^ as that appears to be the only provender that will be procurable, and our bullock teamsters most ultimately go off the road, for the present appearance of their cattle is wretched in...

ROCKHAMPTON. OUR files from Rockhampton are to the 10th instant. Commenting upon a meeting of Mr. A.H.

It ia necessary, bowerer, that reference should be made to one or two points upon which com ments were made. Mr. Norton was censured by Mr. Palmer, for having stated that he, Mr. Palmer, had put himself forward as a man pos sessing a stake in the Port Curtis district.
