At night rubbing with earth and water lessen* the inflammation. Bread Without Crust.—The housewife who would bake her bread or biscuit without a drj, hard crust, caa do so Tery readily.

Queensland Parliament. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

Queensland Parliament. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18. The Coroners Juries Abolition Amendment Bill was read a first time. On moving the second reading of the Open-<*> ing of Roads Bill, the POSTMASTER-GENERAL briefly stated the object of it, namely, to sub mit claims for compensation to arbitration in stead of to juries—the latter being found too expensive a process.—The Hon. H. B. Fitz announced his intention to more certain amend ments when the bill was in committeo, as he thought, as it now stood, it would invest the Government with too much power.— The second reading was than agreed to, and its consideration in committee made an order for Wednesday. A message was received from the Assembly in reply to one from the Council, in reference to the appointment of Joint Committees. The House adjourned until Wednesday next.

REPORTS ON AGRICULTURAL RESERVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

REPORTS ON AGRICULTURAL RESERVES. THE following reports from Mr. Walter Hill, the selector of Agricultural Reserves relative to Reserves in the Moreton and Darling Downs Districts, has been presented to Parliament:— DISTBICT OF MORBTON. Botanic Garden, Brisbane, April 3, 1806. Sir, —In accordance with instructions, I visited the Moreton districts with a view to the dis covery of suitable land foi agricultural reserves. I examined in particular the country on the Albert River, from what is known as the sugar plantation to a few miles above the Tabragalba Station, and found at intervals (between Tamb ourine Station and the sugar plantation), but in limited quantities, some very rich agricultu ral land. The spots were so far isolated, however, that I could not aggregate a sufficient quantity front which to recommend an agricultural resorte. I would suggest, nevertheless, that these patches should be surveyed and cut up into small (arms, for which they are eminently suitable, and for wh...

TOOWOOMBA AGRICULTURAL RESERVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

TOOWOOMBA AGRICULTURAL RESERVE. THE following pithy remarks in reference to the Toowoomba Agricultural Reserve and the meeting recently held by Mr. Groom, M.L.A., at Highfields, were published in the D. D. OaittU of Saturday last: The Toowoomba Agricultural Reserve has of late been pretty prominently brought before the public, tales have been told of the richness of its soil, the beauty of its scenery, the immense forests that hare had to succumb to the will of the farmer, the extent of land under cultivation, and many other things that are doubtless to a great cxter.t true; but the writers of these tales hare forgotten the main things, namely, " Roads and Water." Having had an opportunity yes terday of visiting the reserve, and judging for myself, I can assure you I "was completely as tonished to find the roads in such a fearful state, gullies and ruts, logs and dust, were the valuable articles of which the road was com posed ! no wonder for the Highfields farmers to complain of th...

IRRIGATION. (From Hockings' Garden Manual.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

IRRIGATION. (From Hockings' Garden Manual.) IRRIGATION, as a means of increasing the produce of the soil, is of great antiquity. It is practised to a considerable extent in China, India, Italy, and other countries, and in England England the water meadows are a source of great profit. In Queensland there is abundance of grass for the cattle without resorting to this means of providing it; but there is scarcely any country where the inducement to irrigate is greater. With the continued risk of drought, and wages at the maximum rate, it dehoves the farmer to adapt every means within his reach to protect himself against the former, as well as to econo mise the latter. One great obstacle to the general introduction of irrigation is, that our rivers are mostly salt; and we are not possessed of any satisfactory information as to how far such water can be advantageously used for growing crops. It is not considered safe to us* water containing lcore than three per cent of salt; and as from ...

Acclimatisation. THE QUEENSLAND SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

Acclimatisation. THE QUEENSLAND SOCIETY. THE apparently interminable drought, which is now, happily, at an end, as may easily be imagined from those who are acquainted with the principal locale of the society's operations, has exercised a very unfavor able influence upon their progress. The most—in fact, the only — unfavorable feature of Bowen Park has been the want of natural shelter from the sun for the ralnable stock ef Yarioiu kinds now depasturing there; and during the last planting season a great deal of labor was applied and no inconsi derable amount of money spent in the endeavor to cure this important "defect. A great deal of ground was trenched in various parts of the Park, and, after fencing, each patch was planted with such shrubs and trees, both native and exotic, as were best calculated for rapid growth and for supplying the deficient shade. Some hundreds of such plants were put in the ground, but as we have had nothing but light showers ever since, and those few and f...

THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

THE BOTANICAL GARDENS. THE following report on the Brisbane Botanic Gardens has been printed by order of the Legis-<*> lative Assembly:— dsfdsf Touching the Queen's Park, which by the authority of the Government is to be incorpo rated in the Botanic Gardens, I have to report that until the fence is erected, it would be use less to commence any permanent improvements. One side, however, has been fenced in with a neat iron railing, and there is reason to believe that the remainder will be completed within the next month or two. In that case, I shall be able to accomplish the improvements of laying out the ground, forming walks, tilling the soil, and planting it in sufficient time to meet the full vigor of the spring. The improvements in the Domain have pro gressed in proportion to the funds at command, and several important improvements will be initiated during the current year. In reference to the Botanic Gardens gene rally, I have to state that several alterations and ...

OUR PRESENT CONDITION. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

OUR PRESENT CONDITION. (COMMUNICATED.) ONE of the causes contributing to the present state of affairs has been very lucidly pointed out in your columns, but while agreeing mainly with the writer, it appears to me very probable that undue prominence may be given to one of the causes to the exclusion of others of equal importance. The subject is one of deep interest to the colony, and it would be well if those of your correspondents who are able to throw any light on it would do so. It will be remembered that at the foundation of the colony, six and a-half years ago, our population was about *JO,<X)O, and the principal—almost the only—export was wool, assisted slightly by a few other items of pastoral and agricultural produce. But a stream of immigration began to flaw in, and it was thought that with the increase of population agriculture would flourish, ctnd we would soon haye other powerful interests in the colony; and in 1804, or in less than four and a half years after ...
