SUICIDE OF WILLIAM ENNIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

SUICIDE OF WILLIAM ENNIS. We have another case to add to the list or tragedies which occurred on Saturday last, and it is scarcely less awful than those already men-<*> tioned. A young man going by the name of William B. M. Innes (which, however, is not his right name) has been passing away a number of worthless cheques in this colony. He arrired in Brisbane a few months ago, and circulated several for large amounts. They were all drawn on the Bank of New South Wales, Tamworth, and before it was possible any of them could be returned, he left for Bockhampton. The same system was carried on there, and afterwards in Bowen. He came back to Brisbane on Friday in the Florence Irring, »., as a stowaway. He did not pay his passage, and his box was de tained by the captain on his arrival. The police, who had been watching his procedings for some time past, learned that he intended to get secretly on board the City of Brisbane, steamer, which was to leave at midnight on Saturda...

TERRIBLE WORK ON SATURDAY LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

TERRIBLE WORK ON SATURDAY LAST. SATURDAY, April 7, will be long remembered by the people of Brisbane, as one of the most shocking in its history. Towards dusk a rumor became prevalent that a murder had been com- mittedinthedistrictof Oxley—a district hitherto famous only for the penerering industry of its settlers. The report, on enquiry at the Police office, prored too true; and to it was added that the murderer had committed suicide. Shortly afterwards we heard of another case of self-destruction. This also prored true, and for three days reports of murder, suicide, and in quest* hare appeared at a rate we trust may nerer be equalled. The following particulars are from the Courier, and hare prored substan tially correct: A horrible murder was committed on Satur day afternoon, and the man who did it after wards poisoned himself. The following are the particulars so far as we hare been able to collect them:—A fanner named Joseph Doel, tiring at the Eight-mile Plains, near Oxley Cree...

ST. STEPHENS PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, IPSWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

ST. STEPHENS PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, IPSWICH. THE new Presbyterian Church, Ipswich, was opened for Divine worship on Sunday last, by the Rev. W.L. Nelson, Moderator of the Queensland Church, who conducted the morn- ing service, and read the dedication prayer, which was very beautiful and impressive. A very eloquent sermon was also delivered by the same gentleman, who chose for his text the 17th verse of the 14th chapter of St. Paul to the Ro mans—" For tho kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but justice, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." The organ was well played by Mr. Blow, and the singing excellent, and a xery great improvement on what it was for merly. The evening services were conducted by the Rev. M. M'Gavin, who also preached a very impressive sermon from the last clause of the 7th veiee of the 60th chapter of Isaiah—"And I will glorify the house of my glory." The church, when lighted up as it was on Sunday night by numerous lamps, presents a very im- posing appearance. T...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 12. AGAIN anotner week, and still the same state of affairs: the ground parched in the extreme, abundance of clouds, but scarcely any rain, not more, perhsps, than a heavy dew. perhaps, heavy We understand there is 'likely to be a pretty general obserrance in this district of the day set apart for humiliation and prayer to the Divine Being, that he would be pleased to avert the calamities that seem to be impending over us by sending us rain. Announcements of meetings to be held on that day for this purpose have, I believe, been made in the various places of wor ship throughout the district. May He who overrules all events, and who " opens His hand and satisfies the desire ot every living thing," mercifully listen to the voice of a nation's prayer, and deliver us from this affliction, caus ing the rain to descend, and in this way filling our hearts with joy and gladness.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

NEW ZEALAND. THE New Zealand Herald of the 19th, gives the following items of intelligence:— TRIAL AND CONVICTION OF THE MURDERERS OF JAMES FULLOOM.-The Daily Southern Cross cf 17th March says :—Yesterday, at the Supreme Court, the sixteen natives charged were found guilty of the wilful murder of James Fulloon. Hit Honor summed up the evidence with the greatest care. The jury were absent about an hour, when they returned into court with a verdict of guilty against all the prisoners, re commending the deaf and dumb prisoner, Heahea te Pakihiwi, to mercy. Judgment was deferred till all the charges against the natives had been disposed of. It is proposed that on Monday the Court shall proceed with the trial of the same men for the murder of " Ned," a seaman of the Kate, whose surname has never been ascertained. We believe that that will close the trials for murder, and that the indictments for the murders of Pringle and Bpbinson will be withdrawn. After disposing of the charge for the ...

THE LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE. (From the Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

THE LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE. (From the Daily Telegraph.) IN his old age, Sir John Fallstaff made frequent resolutions to amend his ways. "I must give over this life, and I will give it ever: by the Lord an' I do not, I am a villain." The worst of this sort of fitful . repentance is," that it usually comes too I* late, and proceed^ from no better motive Stock Exchange,like the remorseful knigbt, has of late made some desperate resolutions to discard its loose behaviour. At the eleventh hour, it is discovered that the "house" in Capel-court has been made a rendez-vous of gamblers. Henceforth there is to be no more false dealing in the commodities which the members of the ; penitent society buy and sell, no more quotation of shares at fictitious prices, no more rigging of the market, no more gain of money under false pretences. The Com mittee is resolved to be for the future sternly virtuous; and the public will receive the announcement with the quali fied admiration customarily bestowed...

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

MEXICO. Washington, January 28th.—Official news of the 29th December has been received here from II Pasco. After the occupation of Chihuhua by the French, they sent an expedition to £1 Pasoo I against President Juarez, who collected at that place General Perrigas' division, and made other preparations to resist the invaders, with every prospect of success. When the French heard of this, they marched back to Chihuahua, thus abandoning the attack. Chicago, January 28th.—Advices from Mex ico are important. The Liberal General, Mo* rales, had defeated the imperialists, but wai | subsequently defeated by them with heavy lorn. The liberal General, Martinez, has captured i the town of Alamos. Letters from Brownsville give details of the Bagdad affair. The capturing party was composed of a miscellaneous crowd of Mexican settlers, clerks, adventurers, and idlers, who appear to have engaged in it as a good piece of sport, and though it is believed there were among the captors some United Stat...

CULTIVATION OF THE SUGARCANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

CULTIVATION OF THE SUGARCANE. I remain, Sir; yours very obediently, T. DE KEATING. ON the important subject of sugar-cane culti-<*> tivation, the following communication has been received from M. de Keating, whose "Prectical Treatise" on the same subject is so well and favorably known: — At this season the most important sub* jeot of sugar growing and manufacturing in this colony, which ha 3 just received the con secration of a full and complete success by the Honorable Louis Hope, that pioneer to whom Queensland should be under an everlasting gratitude for having, by his energetic persever ance and at his risk and peril, been the first to show the way to all in introducing on a large scale, has been again introduced.

WHAT IS THE WEIGHT OF A BUSHEL OF MAIZE? [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

WHAT IS THE WEIGHT OF A BUSHEL OF MAIZE? A CONTINUOUS source of annoyance both to those who buy and sell grain—maize especially —is the difference as to what constitutes a "bushel." Formerly the word applied to the bushel, imperial measure, but latterly, and in these colonies more particularly the bushel refers to weight; but what that weight really is, is the cause of much vexation, as our farmers and dealers know well. As a case in point, we hare just heard of a dealer who, while pur chasing, enforces 66 lbs. to the bushel, and " heavy weight at that," yet he sells it at 56 lbs. There is evidently great unfairness in such a system of doing business, and it is at the request of various parties, and with a hope that tome steps to rectify the matter will be taken during the present session of Parliament, that we now direct attention to it. There may be rules in the trade fixing what a " bushel" really is, and we believe 60 lbs. is the generally accepted standard, but it is obviously ...

The Farm & the Garden. AGRICULTURAL AND PASTORAL SOCIETIES' SHOWS. QUEENSLAND Horticultural and Agricultural Society. Next show to be held in Brisbane on the third Wednesday and Thursday of July. t& The secretaries of Societies will oblige by notifying ua of the dates of their next show. Genial showers have fallen throughout the colony since the date of our last issue, though we have heard of nothing deserving the name of heavy rain. The effect of what we have had may be to cause the young glass to spring; still, without heavy rain, grave fears are entertained for the safety of stock during the winter, especially near towns where the scarcity of water is now severely felt. From a gentleman just from the coast, we learn that the cotton fields are turning out splendid, and are even better than those about Ipswich, of which accounts were given in our two last issues. If any thing were wanting to complete our reports of the success of cotton growing in this colony, it is...

THE LATE BLACK MURDERS. (From a Correspondent of the Peak Downs Telegram) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

THE LATE BLACK MURDERS. (From a Correspondent of the Peak Downs Telegram) THE blacks have been killing two shepherds on Cotherstone (Mr. Thome's) run, and taking away a lot of sheep. The have also killed a shepherd at Cheeseborough (formerly part of Wolfang run), and taken a lot of sheep from there. They stripped one of Mr. Walker's men and also the poor fellow at Cheeseborough, after killing them. Mr. Coward came over very promptly as soon as he got information, and got into the blacks* camp on Wednesday night, but oould not do very much, it being in such a dense scrub. Mr. Walker was out with the police from Saturday till Monday last, but up to that time the troopers had not got on the blacks' tracks ; however, there is a good party in pursuit, and I hope and trust they have since come upon the murderers. This is but the first fruit of letting tho blacks in at the sta tions. We give Mr. Coward great credit for his prompt attention, although we are not in his district. It will be t...

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, April 3. EASTER passed off without any very extra-<*> ordinary incidents. There were the usual harbor and railway excursions, with races at Homebush, and so forth—all of which being now like a bottle of bad champagne that had been standing all night with the cork oat, moat be utterly devoid of interest to you or to your readers—a circumstance which is rather for tunate than otherwise, seeing that your corres pondent did not think fit—or at least did not find it convenient, to honor any of the amuse ments with his august presence. I understand that the Opera House, which opened for the season last night, was densely crowded, also the other theatre and the new Americo-Engueh circus. Judging from these things—from the " thousands" reported to hare been out en joying the day, which was a rery fine one, and from the numbers that crowded the streets when those Amusements were over in the evening, one is somewhat puzzled to before all...
