THE LINCOLN MEDAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
THE LINCOLN MEDAL. Washington, February 11.—Dr. George H. Perrine, of New York, to-day, delivered to President Johnson and the hon. George Ban- croft, copies of the Lincoln medal struck in bronze, prepared under the auspices of the American Numismatic and Archaeological So- ciety, and which he was empowered to present in the name of that association. It was in- tended to deliver these medals in due form to-morrow, as a part of the proceedings at the Capitol; but this could not be done without disturbing the previously prepared programme. Both the President and Mr. Bancroft expressed themselves delighted with the medal and the remarkable accuracy of the likeness.
IMPOSING CEREMONIES AT THE CAPITOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
IMPOSING CEREMONIES AT THE CAPITOL. Washington, February 12. —The ceremonies to-day in commemoration of the life and ser-&lt;*> vices of Abraham Lincoln were in the highest degree impressive. The Capitol was closed this morning to all except senators, representa tives, officials, guests of the President, and citizens holding invitation tickets. President Johnson was seated in front of the Speaker's desk; the Chief Justice and his associates sat next, or. his right; the diplomatic corps sat next, and on the right the Cabinet. On the President's left sat distinguished officers of the army and n»vy ; next on the left representatives in Congress; occupying seats on either side in the rear were those invited ; reserving four rows of seats on either side of the main aisles for senators. The diplomatic gallery was occupied exclusively by families of members of diplo matic corps, and the other galleries were crowded with ladies and gentlemen holding tickets. The marine band was s...
OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. (From the Brisbane Courier, April 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. (From the Brisbane Courier, April 11.) BOTH branches of the Legislature were formally opened yesterday by his Excellency the Governor. The Vice-Regal speech was evidently framed on the English model of saying as little as possible. The Premier adopted a course founded on precedent, and previous to the discussion on the reply to the speech stated that ho would on the following day make the explanations usual after a change of Ministry, and at the same time state the line of policy the Govern ment intended to pursue. Under these circumstances, it was not expected that there would be a lengthy sitting. The reverse was, however, the case, and a long and somewhat acrimonious debate took place before the motion for the adoption of the address was carried. The course which the discussion took last evening tends to the impression that the present session will not be either very short or very peaceful. Hon. members took advantage of the liberty allowed them in debate o...
CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE PRUSSIAN CAPITAL. (From the Special Commissioner of the Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE PRUSSIAN CAPITAL. (From the Special Commissioner of the Daily Telegraph.) I MENTIONED, some weeks since, as a drawback to the perfection of glorious old Antwerp, that it had no main street. From such a deficiency Berlin does not suffer. Not only is its main thoroughfare one of the most grandiose in Europe, but critics hare gone so far. as to declare that Berlin, like Brompton, Rochester, Cltatham, and Strood, is all one main street; that the main street in question is Unter den Linden; and that Unter den Linden is the only street worth the attention of a stranger in Berlin. The tourist who visits Paris for the first time is usually advised to take his stand by the Luxor Obelisk in the Place de la Concorde, whence, turning his head to the various points of the compass, but without displace ment of his body, he may take in the coup fail of the Tuileries with its gardens, the Rue de Rivoli with its arcades, the Rue Royale with the Madeleine, the Champs Elysees w...
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866

Roberts (Chairman of Committees), G. Harris, H. B. Fitz, J. M'Connel, W. H. Yaldwyn, und Dr. Hobbs. ARRIVAL OF THE GOVERNOR. At five minutes past 12 o'clock his Excellency the Governor entered the Council Chambers, accompanied by his Aide-de-camp, Captain Pitt, and took his seat on the dais- He thereupon requested that the members of the Legislative Assembly might be summoned, and the usual summons was conveyed by the Usher of the Black Bod. After a short interval, the mem bers of the Legislative Assembly, headed by the Speaker, appeared at the bar of the Council Chamber. OPENDJG SPEECH. His Excellency the Govebxob then read the following Speech:— HONORABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE Council, and Gentlemen or the House op Assembly:— 1. It is with much satisfaction that, after another year o...
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. The SPEAKER read the speech delivered that day by his Excellency the Governor on the opening of the session, and copies of it were distributed amongst the members. ADDRESS IN REPLY. Mr. BjUTF moved that a Select Committee be appointed to prepare a reply to his Excel lency a speech, such committee to consist of Messrs. Macalister, Bell, Mackenzie, Lilley, Herbert, Forbes, and the mover. The motion was carried, and the committee, as appointed, retired to prepare the address. After a short absence they returned, and brought up the following address in reply, which, after a long discussion, was adopted :— "To his Excellency Sir George Ferguson Bowen, Knight Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George, Captain-General and Governor-in- Chief of the Colony of Queensland and its Dependencies, and Vie©-Admiral of the same, Ac., See., Ac.

EPITOME OF PROCEEDINGS. It is our intention to publish, in a condensed form, the daily proceedings of both Houses of Parliament. When occasions demand such— from the universal importance of the subject before either House—full reports will be given. TUEBDAY, APBIL 10.

CENTRAL IMMIGRATION BOARD. ENQUIRY CONCERNING THE LIGHT OF THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
CENTRAL IMMIGRATION BOARD. ENQUIRY CONCERNING THE LIGHT OF THE AGE. AN inquiry was held by the above Board on Wednesday afternoon, by order of the Colonial Secretary, into certain complaints made by Dr. Harrison, the Surgeon-Superintendent of the Light of the Age, against the captain of that Teasel. The following members of tho Board were present:—Mr. Darvall (chairman), Mr. J. M'Donnell, Mr. G. P. Heath, Dr. Temple, and Dr. Purdie. The Chairman stated thut the charges made against the captain by the surgeon-superintend ent were to the following effect: —That the cap tain had given him no support during the voy age; that the upper deck was not kept clean; that it leaked in sereral places, and that the captain did not take effectual steps to remedy it; that the captain was drunk on one occasion ; and that he believed that he was in the same state on other occasions. Henry Edward Harrison, surgeon-superin tendent of the Light of the Age, being called, deposed : The report containing t...
VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
VICTORIA. THE Argus of the 3rd instant mentions that Mr. George remains in custody of the Sergeant at-Arms. On Monday he was visited, in relays of two, by a very large number of friends and strangers, whose counsel wu—" No surrender." It is now openly stated that the Sergeant-at- Arms is not altogether responsible for the arbi trary instructions he lately gave out. There is something more than a suspicion abroad that the highest talent in the Government had some thing to do with them, and that the mace bearer was simply the agent of still grander in quisitors. The proprietors of the Argut hare resolved to present Mr. George, on his exit from his prison, with a very handsome and costly memorial, bearing a suitable inscription, to commemorate in yean to come bis imprison ment in the cause of the Press verms the majority of the Legislative Assembly. The Argus mentions that Easter Monday was one of the hottest days of the season. The wind was light, from the north-west, and the heat of ...
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 14, 1866. HIS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR, by proclamation in the Government Gazette, invited the people to observe a day of humiliation and prayer on account of the sufferings inflicted by the long continued drought. Yesterday was the day appointed, and the citizens kept the day in a becoming manner. All the places of worship in Bris- bane were open, and attended by more than the usual congregations. We have no doubt that the residents in most of the country districts, on whom the calamity presses very heavily, kept the day in the same manner. The continuance of the drought is now seriously affecting every interest in the colony. The inhabitants of some of the towns, and indeed of some parts of the country, are suffering both in health and in pocket from the difficulty of obtaining water. Agricultural operations are at a standstill, and the farmers may be said to have lost a crop of the more common arti- cles of produce; cotton and sugar are the except...
SUICIDE OF THE MURDERER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
SUICIDE OF THE MURDERER. An inquest was held on Monday forenoon on the body of Joseph Doel, who poisoned himself and died in the Watch-house on Saturday even- ing. A jury of twelve was impannelled, and the Coroner (Mr. Massey) having stated the nature of the case which was to be laid before them, the following witnesses were examined: Acting-Serjeant White deposed: That he arrested the deceased, Joseph Doel, at the Bridge Inn, South Brisbane, on Saturday even- ing, at a quarter to 7 o'clock; he was on a sofa in the sitting-room ; told him he was charged with shooting a man, and he said, " It is all right; I suppose I must go along with you ;" he then said he " was very thirsty," and asked for a bottle of lemonade; saw the lemonade poured out; deceased had no opportunity of putting anything in it; saw him drink it; handcuffed him and took him to the watch house at South Brisbane ; all the way he was making a rambling and incoherent statement about having been robbed; at the station a...
CLEVELAND BAY. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
CLEVELAND BAY. (COMMUNICATED.) IT may be advantageous and interesting to not a few of your many readers to have an au- thentic and reliable account of the above locality, which has of late been rather prominently placed before the public gaze as a picture that will only bear inspection viewed in a certain shade, satis pro tem. The township of Towns- ville is situated upon an elbow of land formed by the sea beach and a small creek (up which small craft and vessels of a light draught can sail with a fair wind and high tide) in Cleveland Bay, about 120 miles to the northward of Bowen (Port Denison). To a stranger, upon landing and taking a cursory view of the town, he will naturally be struck with wonder at the &nbsp; number of buildings, and magnitude of the hotels and stores erected in this little township, till but very lately unlettered on maps. As its geographical position is scarcely two years known to any white man, astonishment will be the first impression. Upon reflect...
A CURIOUS CUSTOM. THE CEREMONY OF THE PYX. [FROM THE TIMES.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 14 April 1866
A CURIOUS CUSTOM. THE CEREMONY OF THE PYX. [FROM THE TIMES.] ON Friday morning this very ancient custom, which literally may be said to date from time immemorial, for none can trace with certainty the period when it was first established, was formally observed in the presence of the Lord Chanceller and other high functionaries of State, at the offices of the Controller-General in Old Palace-yard. The ceremony of the Pyx is, of course, of the most routine and formal kind. At one, and indeed no very distant, time it occurred yearly; long ago it was gone through four times in the year. Now, however, it only takes place at intervals of five, six, or seven years. The last ceremony of the Pyx was in 1861, and before that there had been none since 1854, and it is very probable that we shall not have another again for eight or ten years to come. A passing notice of its routine, there fore, may be interesting, if only as illustrating the tenacity with which old customs and old laws are adher...
THE CIVIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
THE CIVIL SERVICE. A supplementary Government Gazette was published on Wednesday, containing a list of officers in the Civil Service of Queensland, classified in accordance with the Acts 27 Vic. No. 18., 28 Vie. No. 12. The Gazette states that "it is to be distinctly understood that this classification is made for the purpose of carrying out the Civil Service Acts of 1863 and 1864, and not in order to determine the precedence of any officer in the service over another; and the Government cannot enter tain the application of any officer to take pre cedence of another in the classified list on account of the supposed superior importance of his office. Questions of precedence, should they arise, can only be settled in accordance with the Queen's Colonial Regulations."
Amusements. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
Amusements. CRICKET. THE newly-formed United Club, as it may be now called, for the Caxton has undergone a change in its organisation as well as in its name, commenced its first match on Saturday after- noon, in an encounter with* the Victoria Club. The former brought a good eleven into the field, and several of its members have many times distinguished themselves in this part of the world, so far as the wretched ground they have had to play on would allow. But up to Satur day one or two of them at least liad not played at all this season. The ground was hard and rough, and dusty between the wickets; under these circumstances, safe or steady batting was out of the question, and the bowler* had everything in their favor. Some fair skill was displayed on both sides but the scores were much less than was expected. Sheehan was the only Victorian who got into double figures, and his score of 16 comprised reveral good bits. On the United side, Egan got 17 by very fair play. Beal was the n...
DEED OF ASSIGNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
DEED OF ASSIGNMENT. A supplementary Government Gazette was published on Tuesday, notifying the undermen-&lt;*> tioned deed of assignment, dated March 26, 1866, and lodged with the Registrar of the Supreme Court on April 13:—"Between Thomas Hodson, of Brisbane, in the colony of Queensland, draper, of the first part; Henry Prince, of Sydney, in the colony or New South Wales, merchant, and William Newton, of Brisbane aforesaid, merchant (trustees for the purposes in the deed of assignment mentioned), of the second part; and the several persons and bodies corporate who have by themselves or their agents executed the said deed of assign ment, being creditors of the said Thomas Hod son, and whose names are mentioned in the schedule attached to the said deed of assign ment, of the third part.
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1866. MR. MACALISTER has given notice that he will, on Thursday next, introduce the Bill for the "Disposal and Alienation of the "Crown Lands." The public will then be put in possession of the measure by which the present Government have declared that they will stand or fall. This bill is intended to regulate the sale of land, and to define the principles on which it shall be disposed of in fee simple. The terms under which the lands of the colony can be leased for pas toral occupation have been already decided in such a liberal manner, in one consoli dated Act, that the rights of the squatters are clearly defined. It is necessary now that the agricultural interest should have that attention paid to | its progress which has previously been given to the grazier. This is particularly essential at the present time, when there are such loud complaints of the scarcity of money, and yet we are sending away nearly a million pounds sterling every year f...
