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

TASMANIA. WE have advices from Hobart Town and Launceston to the 31st ultimo. INTERCOLONIAL EXHIBITION.-A meeting of the commissioners lately appointed by the Gorernment took place by invitation of hit Wonhip the Major, at the Town Hall, on Mon day afternoon; Messrs. Adye Douglas, J. Bobertson, A. Barrett, Charles Gould, and James Scott, were the onlj persons present. His Worship was elected to the chair. After reading his Excellency's commission, appoint ing commissioners, his Worship said he had received a letter from the Mayor of Hobart Town which had been sent by the Colonial Secretary, intimating that the Government were willing to assist the commissioners by any infor mation needful for the furtherance of their duties. His worship then read a letter, also from the Colonial Secretary, stating that the Government had decided to sanction the expen diture, on behalf of the exhibition, of £300 at Hobart Town, and £200 at Launceston. A con versational discussion then arose, and it w...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA (From the Perth Gazette, February 23.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

WESTERN AUSTRALIA (From the Perth Gazette, February 23.) "Two of a trade can never agree, so says an old adage, and we appear to have a notable instance of it in the difference which have long been known to prevail between the Comptroller- Genenl of convicts here and the former Comp troller-General of convicts in Tasmania, now Governor of this colony, probably made so on account of his efficiency in the former appoint ment. However that may be, there is no doubt Governor Hampton has not lost his taste for his old occupation, and hence Captain Newland and himself have come to loggerheads; and it is believed that when his Excellency does fall oat with any of his officers, he finds plenty of occasion to render things unpleasant. In the present instance the differences are of long standing, and it it no secret that the Governor has made representations to the Secretary of State alleging inefficiency on the part of the Comptroller, and making him the subject of frivolous complaints, all ...

COTTON AND SUGAR ON THE PIMPAMA RIVER AND NERANG CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

COTTON AND SUGAR ON THE PIMPAMA RIVER AND NERANG CREEK. ON the southern shores of Moreton Bay there is a large extent of agricultural land, which, from the facilities it affords for water communi- cation, attracted the attention of persons looking for suitable situations for the cultivation of cot ton. Some five or six thousand acres on the Pimpama, and about half that quantity on Nerang Creek, were taken up under the cotton regulations. At the present time there are pro bably on these estates about 240 acres under cul tivation, one-half in cotton, and the remainder in sugar, arrowroot and maize. The great dis tance from a market has hitherto prevented the settlement of a class of persons similar to those found on the Logan, and scarcely any land has been alienated except the cotton grants. These are all on the banks of salt water creeks, and within reach of navigation. The approach to the Pimpama from the bay is through winding channels, between a number of islands or mangrove flat...

TOOWOOMBA, AS SEEN BY A STRANGER. NO. II. THE STEAM FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

TOOWOOMBA, AS SEEN BY A STRANGER. NO. II. THE STEAM FLOUR MILLS. THE steam flour mills of Mr. Charles Cocks are situated at the lower part of Ruthven street, just beyond the post office—of which something will be said by-and-bye. An advertise- ment having appeared in a local paper a day or two previous to my visit, to the effect that the mill would commence operations for the season early in April, it was not surprising that little was doing during the preceding month. Every thing, however, seemed in capital order, and I trust ere this time a thriving business is being done. The mill is in every way complete, and from the high character given to the flour it produced last season, there can be but one impression of its capabilities. The grinding capacity is between 2000 and 3000 bushels per month, which as yet is beyond the supply of the district, although wheat is sent from as great a distance as Allora. The wheat crop around Toowoomba has suffered slightly in weight owing to the dr...

The Sketcher. OUR PARLIAMENT. (FROM AN OUTSIDER.) [CONTRIBUTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

The Sketcher. OUR PARLIAMENT. (FROM AN OUTSIDER.) [CONTRIBUTED.] I AM constitutionally a deliberative person; and it is to be supposed that such being the esse, the person so characterised would, wherever a deliberative assembly were called assembly together, be present to derive, if not instruction, at least knowledge. Unfortunately our colony haa two Houses. Now, no single person can be in two places at once. lam not quite sure that, under the eloquence of one House, I did not go to sleep. Consulting the annals of the colony, it is recorded that somnolence resides necessarily in the Upper Chamber; and there fore, as bedchambers are on the upper floor, the present writer did not go to sleep there at any time between three and ten either yesterday or the day before. It is, therefore, quite con clusive that he was, if anywhere, in the Assembly. In that Assembly there seems to have been an awakening of the dry bones. Pasa by all the ceremonies of the opening of Parliament, the flouris...

MARRIED IN THE CLOUDS! [FROM THE NEW YORK HERALD.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

MARRIED IN THE CLOUDS! [FROM THE NEW YORK HERALD.] MARRIED in a balloon! Start not, ye fair ones, to whom we have vowed eternal con-<*> stancy. Nor you to whom our virgin heart is given, fear that we have deceived you. Weep not ye who cease not to pour libations of love and admiration at our feet. It is not we who are married. Heavens forefend ! We are still true to our tows, still faithful to her who holds our heart enthralled, still thirsting for the liba tions which youth and beauty offer to us. Satisfy yourselves of it Trust to him who would hare sooner—imagine a simile—than de ceive yon. Yesterday, it was well-known throughout the city that the balloon bridal, so long talked of, was actually to take place. • * • From the balloon swelling above, as if to burst the seemingly slender net-work which enclosed it, hung suspended the bridal car. This novel matrimonial adjunct presented a striking contrast to the modest basket which had done such good service since the ad...

"THE ADVANCE TOWARDS DEMOCRACY." [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

"THE ADVANCE TOWARDS DEMOCRACY." MEEANCHIN. ENGLISH mail telegrams may always be regarded with a certain amount of suspicion. Before reaching Queensland, they have to come through so many offices, manned by clerks of doubtful erudition, that what was black in Adelaide may be made white be fore a Brisbane public. The insertion of a word, simple and unmeaning enough in itself, may cause an amount of anxiety positively fearful to contemplate; and the manner in which telegraph clerks manage to transform the names of men and places is refreshing to people who are adepts in fixing Chinese puzzles, or deciphering the hieroglyphics which sometimes adorn our modern newspapers. Grammar, history, geography, arithmetic, heraldry, nomencla ture, &c, &c, are all one to the telegraph clerk, and when the clidelick-click of his instrument is telling the country through him that "Prince Conza has an uncomfortable time of it in his capital," the vagueness of the message, and the clerk'...

FEARFUL INCREASE OF CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

FEARFUL INCREASE OF CRIME. OUR "Sydney Man" thus notices the fearful rapidity with which crime is increasing in the neighboring colonies. Would we could add that it was confined to them: I am sorry to say that there is a most awful case of murder to add to my news. It is pos sible that you may hare received the particulars overland before this reaches you, as it is in New England that the horror occurred. I can make ho notes on a case which is thus reported in the Araidale papers, of Saturday last:— "On Thursday, a most horrible murder was committed at the Bocky, the rietim being an old man, highly respected, named Donald 11'Bae, and the murderer, it is shocking to add, his son, a man of about thirty years of age, of un governable temper, and said by some persons to be weak-witted, though others deny it. It ap pears from most reliable information, which we hare been favored with, that tho father and son were tunnelling in the bonk of the river, along with another man, below Mr. Brow...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXVIII. MARIQUITA ESCUDERO. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXVIII. MARIQUITA ESCUDERO. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. AFTER the breathless calm of the past day, the heat of the cabin was intense; the lamp was trimmed and lit by the steward, but the skylight was still kept open. "Awfully hot, Morley, is it not ?" said Tom Bartelot, as he threw off his jacket " Yes; and the heat makes one so thirsty, too!" " I can't give you iced champagne, as in the gardens at Rio; but the steward has bitter beer, beaujolais, and potash water, with grog for you, Morrison, which I know you prefer ; and you, too, Noah, my old Triton. And now let us to work, and overhaul the old man's papers." Morrison, who had been scanning over the manuscript, helped himself to a glass of grog mechanically, without taking his eyes from the writing. Noah Gtawthrop, who had been specially invited below, in virtue of the part he had borne in the past day's episode, received a jorum of stiff grog from the steward, and seated himself near the bulkhead...

EGYPTIAN WHEAT NOT AFFECTED BY RUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

EGYPTIAN WHEAT NOT AFFECTED BY RUST. THE following letter has been addressed to the editor of the S.M. Herald:— Sir,—At the urgent request of several gentle-<*> men and friends I forward to you the following facts concerning the Egyptian or compound cared wheat, which is not in any way affected by the rust. The Egyptian wheat has been long and largely cultivated in the south-east of Asia. It has been known in Germany for about 2SO years. It has been cultivated in France for about 90 years, and was introduced into England about the beginning of the present century, where, under different names, it has frequently been grown. Five yearp ago I came into possession of two ears of it, which I carefully preserved and sowed on my land. The first year's growth I sowed again. And thus year by year, until now I have a hundred bushels of it thrashed and fit either for seed or for the mill. Now, Sir, what I especially want to bring under your notice is the fact, that while all my o...

ROMA. (From the Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

ROMA. (From the Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) IN my last, I wrote the hasty peroration in the full assurance that a plentiful supply of rain was impending. But it turned out to be all sound and fury, signifying nothing; a few signifying nothing; rattles of thunder overhead, a vivid flash or two, a sudden gust stirring up and whirling round leaves and dust, and out shone old Sol as hot and defiant us ever. This continued dry weather bids fair to paralyse business of a cer tain sort. All ideas of travelling sheep must be abandoned, and purchasers in that line have buttoned up their pockets for the present. A rumour has reached the Quidnuncs of Boma, to the effect that the Government do not intend carrying out the railway to that town ship, until a ten yean' experience of the line from Ipswich to Dalby has shown whether or no Queensland railways are to pay. If there should be any truth in this rumor, it will only show the people of the Western Districts what they may expect at t...

WARWICK. (From the Argus, April 7.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

WARWICK. (From the Argus, April 7.) COACHES THRICE A WEEK TO TOOWOOMBA.- Our readers will be glad to perceive that Mr. Cook, after a few weeks' trial of running bi-<*> weekly coaches between Warwick and Too- woomba, bu seen the necessity for running three times a week. This movement speaks well for the success of the enterprise during the short time it has been on foot, and we trust that with the additional convenience which a tri-weekly coach conveyance will be to the people of Warwick and Tooweomba, the spirited proprietor may himself reap substantial benefit therefrom. Ths Missing Womaw,—No discovery has yet been made of Mrs. Mandel, who wandered away from the coach at Emu Creek, on the 22nd ultimo. Every part of the country for miles around has been thoroughly scoured by Acting-sergeant Orayson, of the Allora police, and other parties, but nothing whatever has been seen or heard of the unfortunate woman. It is supposed she has secreted herself in some gully or plac...

Queensland Parliament. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

Queensland Parliament. THE Fourth Session of the Second Parliament of Queensland was opened on Tuesday, by his Excellency the Governor, with the ceremony usual on such occasions. For some time before the hour of meeting the street in the vicinity of the Parliament Buildings was crowded with persons who appeared to take an interest in the proceedings. All the available space in the Legislative Council was occupied, the Speaker's gallery principally by ladies, and the strangers' gallery by some of the principal citizens of Brisbane. On the right of the President's chair sat Lady Bowen. Amongst the occupants of the Speaker's gallery were Cliief Justice Cockle and Judge Shepherd. A battery de tachment of No. 1 Volunteer Artillery, under the command of Lieutenant Geary, had been told off to (ire a salute of seventeen guns on the departure of his Excellency from Govern ment House, and another on his departure from the Parliament House. At ten minutes to 12 o'clock a discharge of Artillery...

He then called upon Mr. M'Donnell, a member of the Committee, to explain in the first place why the alteration in rule V was recommended. Mr. M'Donneh read the alteration, which was as follows:—" That members thall elect by ballet a President, Vice-President, and Trea surer, and nine of their number as a committee of management." In explaining the reasons which had induced the committee, to make this alteration, he stated that during the lost twelve months a number of the committee had not attended to their duties ; at all events, they hud not attended with any regularity the com mittee meetings. The consequence was, that it was deemed advisable to make a reduction in the number. Last year, two Vice-Presid...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 12. THERE is a project on foot on the lower part of the Logan and Albert Rivers, for erecting suitable buildings for house, school, and chapel for the use of all classes and all denominations of the settlers. The buildings are to be erected on a plot of land to be giren for that purpose by the Rev. John O. Hauemann. A subscrip tion list is already being filled up, and there is no doubt but that this scheme will hare the assistance and co-operation of all the settlers, as there is to be no complexity as to the cost or management; and such building is to be freely used at it may be wanted for a school, a chapel, or for public meetings to adrance the interests of the neighbourhood ; and there may be meetings of all descriptions required. This is a step in the right direction, and no one can miss seeing that it will be better for the requirements of the places in the newly-formed state of the settle ments. It is absolutely ridiculous for th...
