GEORGIUS ALBUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
GEORGIUS ALBUS. PASQUIN. How doth the hoary-headed muff Play Jenkins every hour; And cringe, like any servile wight, To those in place or power. How skilfully he puffs for aale Ilia wretched, boshy ware; But bow tbe public all refuse To fall into the snare. Geology and sermons both Are on the market drujpi; And now lie fitly lead* a staff Of literary Thugs. If they were worthy of one's steel, Or equal to fair fight, Then 'twould be fun sometimes to show How those they bit can smite. Men like in strife to nioet with men; No honest ithWMe fears A manly, stalwart foe to face; To deal with tnobi— who cares ?

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WE had several dull cloudy days during the early part of the past week, with an occasional scud of rain of short duration. The weather seems now to give every promise of more conti- give every promise nuous rains, as the atmosphere is laden with heavy clouds, and the showers occur at shorter intervals. From these appearances I trust that before your next issue, all our anxiety may be dispelled ; and those hopes which have been so frequently and fervently repeated may be amply fulfilled. I have heard that a public meeting will be shortly held at Highfields in order that steps may be taken for the formation of a separate municipality in that district. The endowments which the municipality would receive from the sale of crown lands in its reserves would go far to the improvement of its local roads, and the development of its water supply, while the con tinued influx of settlers and its local population give a positive guarantee to the necessity ...
THE DRATON AND TOOWOOMBA ELECTORAL ROLL. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
THE DRATON AND TOOWOOMBA ELECTORAL ROLL. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) I remain, Sir your obedient servant, A FARMER. April 14, 1866. The striking off of the large number of 184 persons from the Electoral Roll of Drayton and Toowoomba has naturally enough caused much excitement, and it is not at all improbable improbable bat what it will result in the matter being brought before Parliament The following is a copj of the notice received by a friend of mine in January last:— " Court House, Toowoomba, " January 16,1866. " Sir,—Your qualification as elector for Drayton and Toowoomba is not considered satisfactory by the Examining Court of the Electoral Roll, and in terms of the Act 29 Tie., No. 12, I hereby gire you notice to produce satisfactory proof of your qualification to rote for Drayton and Toowoomba at the next court of revision, to be held at this office sometime between the 28th March and 28th April, doe notice of which will be published in the Government Gazette. —l am, Sir, your o...
THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 19. TO all appearances the drought is now happily receiving a check, and if the frequent showers continue the grass will speedily undergo a change, and we may yet have a moderate may yet browsing for the cattle during the coming winter. The showers come from the south-east, which is supposed to be the right direction from whence we may expect plenty of rain. To those farmers from the old country the " Sunday change and the Monday's flood will persuade them of the trite old proverb being yet applicable for them here. It remains yet to be seen whether the rain can be of any decided benefit to the potato crop, and some anxiety will be evinced on that score. lam nearly persuaded that there will be little good to be done to the winter crop of maize for all I have seen is already in tossil, about three feet high, and dwarfy and shrivelled in the leaves, and without any appearance whatever of any cobs forming. But it will come in for fodder if...
THE ALBERT. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) April 17, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
THE ALBERT. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) April 17, 1866. I WAS glad to see the subject of worship in the bush touched upon, under any form, in your columns. I always read the letter of your cor-&lt;*> respondent from the Logan with interest and Logan Eleasure, but I was particularly pleased with his itter in your issue of the 14th instant. The Day of Humiliation and Prayer was observed on the ilbert River in a manner that was very encouraging to every one who feels an interest in the moral condition of this growing district. 6 * Mr. Warren has erected a large building on the banks of the Albert River, for a receptacle for grain and other products of the land. This building, which is nearly finished, was opened on that day for Divine Service, it being more central and more commodious than the neat, small room near his house, in which we have held service for the last twelve months. I was glad to find that the call of the Govern ment was so respectably responded to. The new buil...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April, May 20. LAST Friday, the day appointed for humilia-&lt;*> tion and prayer, was very generally observed throughout the district, all work being sus-&lt;*> pended, and the various places of worship being places worship being opened for appropriate services. In all in stances the meetings were numerously attended, and were of a very interesting character. As intimately connected with the above, we hare to note a change in the weather, which took place on the night of Bunday last, wheu a heavy shower fell, and we have had numerous repeti tions since, which, in a very few days, will no doubt alter the appearance of everything. Al , ready its effects may be seen on the grass, and , although we have not as yet had very much, •till we have had some relief ; and tie probabi lities, from present appearances, are that the relief will be permanent. The amount of rain fall at present is not great, but i...
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, April 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, April 19.) THE weather continues showery, but the quantity of rain that has yet fallen in Ipswich is inconsiderable. Brisbane and Toowoomba have both had heavy downfalls, and no heavy doubt our turn will soon come. The revision court for the consideration of the new claims sent in for insertion in the electoral roll, has been further adjourned till 10 o'clock to-morrow, in order to give persons an oppor tunity to come forward and support their claims. Over three hundred have been received, and yet only one person appeared in court yesterday to prove his title. We are requested to state that to-morrow, in every case that is not established to the satisfaction of the bench, the names will be struck off. A meeting of persons interested in the forma tion of a Young Men's Christian Association, on unsectarian principles, took plac* at Mr. Carter's, Brisbane-street, on Tuesday evening. About fifteen gentlemen were present, and pre liminary steps for th...

THE SHOOTING CASE AT MOOLOOLAH. MRS. JONES, at present in custody, charged with shooting a young man named Farrell, at Mooloolah, was, on Monday, examined before the Brisbane Police Magistrate. The following evidence was elicited :— Detective Craven produced a plan of the ground on which Martin Farrellwas shot on the 24th March, which showed the relative positions and parts referred to.

DALBY. (From the Herald, April 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
DALBY. (From the Herald, April 12.) ON Tuesday, 11,000 sheep belonging to Jingi Jingi passed through Dalby en route for Vic-&lt;*> toria, also seventy head fat cattle for Jimbour. The weather continues dry, and the inconve- dry, nience and distress occasioned by scarcity of water is very great. We learn that on a neighboring station instructions have been given to travel the sheep for water. At inter vals during the last few days the sky has been overcast, and on Tuesday there was a slight drizzle in one part of the town that did not extend to another part, but the sky again be came clear as polished steel, and has so re mained ever since. The Municipal Council have given instructions to have the wells recently sunk prepared for use as speedily as possible, the water in the creek having now become very scarce. A letter received in town states that sly grog selling is carried on to a very great extent on the back tracks in the neighborhood of War War. It is state that a nu...
ROMA. (From a Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
ROMA. (From a Correspondent of the D. D. Gazette.) THE inhabitants of Roma have at length be-&lt;*> stirred themselves in the matter of the water supply. After using for months a conglomera-&lt;*> tion of soap-suds, dirt, grease (from the bodies of blacks), and defunct puppies, a meeting was held iv the Theatre, od the evening of the 10th instant, when a large assemblage had the oppor tunity of discussing this long vexed question. The proceedings were opened by the police magistrate, who, after stating his willingness to afford any information which might be required at his hands, explained that his olficiiil position debarred his presiding over a meeting of the sort, and E. S. Ryder, Esq., of the Hank of Queensland, was then called to the chair. The first resolution was to the effect that a crisis was impending which threatened the supply of water at present enjoyed by the Bunglers. The second resolution wu a proposal to fence in the waterhole nearest to the t...

WARWICK. THE following items are from the Argus of the 18th instant:— TRAVELLING CATTLE.—Last Saturday morn-&lt;*> ing a large mob of cattle passed through the south end of the town. We believe they belong to the Messrs. Cook, and are travelling from the Macleay River to their station near Bock hampton. The Wkathbr.—We were yesterday indulg ing in the hope that we would be in a position to report this morning a thorough breaking up of the drought, but we were doomed to melan eholj disappointment. On Monday afternoon there were strong indication* of rain, aad indeed a misty fall continued for a minute or so, but the sun quickly dispersed the thin cloud, and dashed our hopes away. Yesterday morning, however, exhibited better signs of rain, for up to about noon the clouds seemed to be gathering all round, the sky being completely I overcast, and a thick mist enveloped the sur rounding hills. Every one seemed to antici pate with joy a thorough and continuous downpour. A gentl...

Ido not, however, calculate that for the ensuing year this rate of increase can continue, as the drought in the southern colon...
