REPORT UPON THE TALGAI GOLDFIELDS, FOR THE YEAR 1865. Mr. Gold Commissioner Eliott to the Secretary for Lands and Works. March 17, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

REPORT UPON THE TALGAI GOLDFIELDS, FOR THE YEAR 1865. Mr. Gold Commissioner Eliott to the Secretary for Lands and Works. March 17, 1866. Sir,-In compliance with the directions con-<*> tained in your circular of 13th January last, I have the honor to enclose my report upon the progress and development of the gold fields under my charge. I may state that the diggers generally are much dissatisfied with the yield of gold from the quartz crashed at the " Victoria" machine, believing that tliey hare been defrauded to a large extent by the manager ; and this supposition is, to a certain extent, borne out by the fact that the prospectors in the "Prince of Wales" reef, who had a crushing of nineteen tons at the " Victoria " machine, yielded only two ounces per ton, raised two tons of similar stone, which they crushed at the " Enterprise " machine, yielding 12ozs. ldwt. 22grs. per ton; and at this very time the manager of the " Victoria " absconded from the diggings (and has no...

LATEST NEWS. AMERICA. LONDON, Feb. 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

LATEST NEWS. AMERICA. LONDON, Feb. 26. We have intelligence this morning from New York to the 15th February. Eight members of the Virginian Legislature waited the preceding day upon President Johnson, and presented a resolution from the Virgininn Assembly, pro claiming the loyalty of the State,' and endorsing the course pursued by Mr. Johnson. The delegates addressed the President, saving that Virginia would abide by the results of the war, including the abolition of slavery and the recognition of the necessity for the perpetuation of the Union. Towards freed men the people of Virginia felt ODly kindness and sympathy. The President stood between the South and danger, by defending tho consti tution from violation or innovation.—The Pre sident responded, saying tliat mutual eonfi.lene* and forbearance must be exercised, and that the people of the South were entitled to representa tion whenever they tent loyal representatives; only loyal men should exercise political power. He believed...

MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

MEXICO. Mexican despatches, published by the New York press, report the arrival at Mexico of the new French admiral to consult with Marshal Bazaine on the relations between the United States, France, and the Maximilian government. Rumour had it that the admiral was to be fol lowed by a large fleet of naval vessels ; but at the same time, while some contended these vessels were to be used in a manner hostile to the United States government, other aerountt said they would prove to be only transport* to convey the French troops from Mexico to other parts of the Amerioan continent. Tolucca, which had been captured by th* Juarists, under Munoz, was the ancient capital of Mexico, and contained 12.000 inhabitants, and bo critical was the emergency considered that Marshal Bazaine, with all the imperial troops at hand, had started from the city of Mexico to attempt the recapture of the place. There was a rumor, apparently well founded, that a couple of yaluable suVr mines had fallen into the...

FOREIGN. THE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

FOREIGN. THE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. A semi-official report of the proceedings of the court-martial on the late George William Gordon, and a narrative of the circumstances attending his capture, have been published. me narratiTe v by Dr. Bowerbank, Custos of Kingston. The following is Dr. Bowerbank's description of the arrest:— About midday, the Governor, being anxious to return to Morant Bay, proposed to drive up to the general's to take leave of him. As.we went into the house a policeman whispered to me that Mr. Gordon was inside. As we entered we ttund the general, Mr. Gordon, and Dr. Fiddes, standing up; the general and Mr. Gordon were conversing. On seeing the governor, enter, Mr. Gordon turned towards him and said, "Oh! your excellency." The governor replied, «I regret, Mr. Gordon, I can hold no communication with you." On which Mr. Gordon said, « Why ? >r His excellency replied, "Because you are a prisoner." Mr. Gordon answered, " What for ?" The governor gave no answer, but tur...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

AMERICA. A delegation of colored men have visited President Johnson, and urged upon him that as the negroes were taxed they should he allowed the right of suffrage and representation. In reply, the President declared himaelf to hare always been the advocate of the negro, but he bettered that the negroes in the South would not be benefited by the enfranchisement. It would breed a war of races. The question was one for the people's decision, and it would be tyrannical for him to attempt to force it upon the people against their will. President Johnson thought the negroes would do better to emigrate than remain crowded together in the South. The delegation respectfully ex pressed their non-concurrence in the President's riews. They hare since published an address to the President controverting his opiuions and declaring them besides prejudicial to the interests of the negro. The House of Representatives hare passed the bill granting unconditional negro suffrage in the district of Colum...

SUGAR AND COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

SUGAR AND COTTON. NOTWITHSTANDING the severity of the drought, our sugar and cotton plantations in the Brisbane district are progressing favorably. In all directions we hear of cotton-picking, ginning, and packing for the homo market. Already the early picking on some plantations has been ginned and shipped. In the Ipswich district the crops have been moro forward than those of our southern estates. Much cotton has been gathered on the properties of Messrs. Bell, Challinor, Panton, Bauer, and Sahl, and other properties on the Upper Brisbane, the Bromer, and forms near Ipswich ; the result being satisfactory (as far as upland cotton is concerned) both as regards quantity per acre and prices obtained. There is no doubt that during the coining planting season a large in crease in cotton cultivation will take place. The operations now carried on are very con siderable in sugar and cotton. At Messrs. Warren and Co. and Waldron Brothers, at the Albert Biver; Messrs. Board, at the Hotham R...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

FRANCE. The draft of the Address in reply to the Speech from the Throne was brought forward on February 6 in the Senate. The paragraphs relating to Rome, the September Convention, Algeria, agriculture, and home liberties simply re-echo the paragraphs on those subjects in the Emperor's speech. With regard to the Mexi can question the Address of the Senate sajs :— " Your majesty informs us that the memor able expedition to Mexico approaches its termi nation. This is announcing to satisfied France that the protection of her commercial interests is assured in a vast and wealthy market now restored to security. As regards the United States, if, from misconception, the presence of the French flag in Amerioa appeared to them less opportune than at a previous and most illustrious period of their history, the firm tone of the communications made by your majesty's government has demonstrated that haughty and menacing language will not decide us to with draw.

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. Royal AcßicuLTtnuii Society. Annual Ex hibition to take place at Warwick, on Tues day and Wednesday, June 26 and 27. TlSs** The secretaries of Societies will oblige by notifying us of the dates of their next show. So far as our immediate neighborhood is concerned, the farmers, &c, have had a splendid time since our hist publication— rain having fallen in good smart showers at very short intervals during both day and night. The consequence is great activity in breakiug up land for oats, turnips, garden stuff, and green feed.

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. IX. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. IX. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. WITH the view of ascertaining the average length of thread produced from cocoons culti-<*> vated in Brisbane, Queensland, I wound off half a dozen on Wednesday evening, the 22nd November, 1865, by means of a machine of my own construction, turned by the hand, with a revolution of two yards to each rotation. The result'was as follows :—lst cocoon, 276 yards; 2nd cocoon, 288 yards; 3rd cocoon, 270 yard*; 4th cocoon, 296 yards; sth cocoon, 264 yards; and 6th cocoon, 340 yards; giving a total measurement of 1736 yards; or a mean average of 289 yards to each cocoon, exclusive of the floss. In order to resolve a controversy concerning the disputed weight of raw silk produced in Australia, I weighed a quantity on Thursday, the 23rd November, 1865, at my residence near to Petrie Terrace, Brisbane; and I carefully ascertained the following result*:—l found that 65 cocoons, with the floss silk on, and after baking, (having ...

THE GARDENERS' CHRONICLE ON QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

THE GARDENERS' CHRONICLE ON QUEENSLAND. IT is always pleasant to hear the public servants of our country well spoken of by those we respect; and especially so when we know the praise is deserved. When it is known that the labors of the gentlemen named are deroted to the best interests of the country, pres ent, and prospective, we may well wish the opportunities of noticing them would more frequently occur. In the Gardener*' Chronicle of December 23 me find the following notice of Queensland progress :— Beef at 3d. a pound! We can fancy a chorus of thrifty housewives* eagerly demanding Where? and, not to keep them in suspense longer than we can help, we point to Queensland as the spot where meat is to be had at this low price." We hare already published in our columns (p. 1037) a report from Mr. Hill, the colonial botanist, upon the agricultural capabilities of certain dis tricts discovered by him. Brisbane papeis since received contain additional reports upon other regions explored ...

A BUSHEL OF MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

A BUSHEL OF MAIZE. BY the two last numbers of the Queenslander I observe that this subject has been brought prominently before the public, and it appears also to have engaged much attention in Sydney. Perhaps you will allow me space for a few words, as I have been connected with the grain trade more or less for the last twenty years in the Australian colonies. The great variation in the weight of wheat, and the fact that it nearly all passed into the hands of a few millers, caused an average weight of 60 lbs. to be fixed upon, which while it afforded a little compensation to the purchaser of a light sample, in addition to the difference in price, had the great recommendation of sim plicity and facility in determining any quantity, it being of course easier to weigh a thousand bags of grain than to measure them. The weight also more clearly defined the quantity, as a careless or roguish measurer might defraud the purchaser greatly in a large parcel. With regard to barley and oats, I ...

SUGAR GROWING. ESSAY ON THE VARIOUS MEANS USED FOR EXTRACTING AND REFINING SUGAR. PRELIMINARY REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

SUGAR GROWING. ESSAY ON THE VARIOUS MEANS USED FOR EXTRACTING AND REFINING SUGAR. PRELIMINARY REMARKS. (BY T. DE KEATING.) BEFORE commencing the description of the means used for obtaining and extracting sugar from the plants which contain it, it is desirable and momentous to trace back the chemical and physical characteristics which serve to discern this substance from other organic matters, and to discover their different rarieties. I shall also briefly allude to "its properties as an alimentary substance, its therapeutic use, and show by a few remarks the motives which lead to the belief that the ancients knew the sugar cane and its produce, if not in a state of " pure sugar," at least in that of " moscoTado " or "rough sugar." Chemists ascribe the name of " sugar " to any organic soluble matter which being dissolved in water, and put in contact with a ferment or leaven, decomposes itself in giving rise to alco hol, which remains in the liquor, and can be separated from it by dis...

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) Generally, the police under Mr. Price are a terror to black evil-doers, and since that officer has been quartered amongst us, we have with grateful feelings of security loft our houses and barns throughout the day to the tender mercies dfrats and bandicoots ; but a week ago while the troopers and their indefatigable leader were away, a house on the left bank of the river was cleared out by the indigenous thieves, of every thing that it contained. Vengeance is ours, or it belongs to the police—to which ?—to some one surely ? I cannot but rejoice at the energy, on paper, of your Tiaro correspondent, which may seem to some of the older residents intensely indica tive of new chum enthusiasm. " New brooms sweep clean," and all that style of proverb, may be quoted here aptly. Should I provoke such a smile were I to point out the undoubted advantages to Messrs.

Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. WE have received files from Sydney to the 14th instant. The Empire of that date, in reference to outlawing bushrangers, remarks:—"Some time will probably elapse before the Government will be able to issue a proclamation of outlawry against the six men concerned in the murder of constable O'Grudy, at Nerrigundah. It will be necessary, in the first place, to obtain the depo sitious of those people who witnessed the mur der, together with the names of the bushrangers. From the accounts hitherto published, it would seem that all the men arc unknown, with the exception of Tommy Clarke. Nothing can be done, in fact, till the criminals are identified; and we sincerely hope there may be no difficulty in that respect. Once outlawed, judging from the past, the career of the gang will be brief."* The Barae journal reports the following case of real distress: —About a fortnight ago we reported an inquest on the body of a young man named George Cook, ...

DESPERATE ATTACK OF PRISONERS ON A POLICE ESCORT. ONE CONSTABLE SHOT DEAD, AND THREE PRISONERS WOUNDED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

DESPERATE ATTACK OF PRISONERS ON A POLICE ESCORT. ONE CONSTABLE SHOT DEAD, AND THREE PRISONERS WOUNDED. On Saturday evening, a telegram was received by the Inspector-General of Police, intimating that a terrible encounter had taken place be-<*> tween the police and some prisoners they were prisoners they escorting from Berrima to Sydney ; that all the prisoners were secured, but that three had been wounded, and one constable shot dead. Finding, at a later hour on Saturday night, that those who had just returned from Piston gave rery disconnected and somewhat unintelligible ac counts of this matter, we sent a reporter espe cially to Picton yesterday, and the following are the particulars he obtained, partly from the officer in charge of the escort, and partly from the driver of the coach in which the affray took place. On Saturday morning, about 9 o'clock, senior sergeant Healey, with constables Kilpatrick, Mitchell, and Raymond, received into then custody, at Beirima g...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

VICTORIA. WE are in receipt of files from Melbourne to the 9th instant. The Age of the 7th instant, reports the fol-<*> lowing disgraceful outrage committed by a Civil servant: — An extremely disgraceful occurrence took place on Thursday evening, in one of the car riages of the Brighton train, as it proceeded from Melbourne. The Attorney-General and Mr. Bindon, M.L.A., were seated opposite each other conversing, in the smoking carriage, when Mr. Stephen, an official in the Customs depart medt, rudely thrust Mr. Bindon from his place, and seating himself opposite Mr. Higinbotham, poured out a torrent of abuse against that gentleman, his Ministerial colleagues, and their supporters in the Assembly. The language he used was interlarded with curses and epithets too gross to be repeated here, and it was accom panied by gesticulations of a threatening character. He wound up by spitting in the Attorney-General's face. During the coarse vituperation in which Stephen indulged, ...

THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. FOR many of our countrymen in Australia the Fenian movement, in America and in Ireland, will possess a special interest, because amongst them are many Irish Celts by birth or by des- cent. The habits of colonial life, which are calculated to encourage sentiments of attach ment for the mother country and her institu tions, settling down ultimately into indepen dence and fast alliance with England, are dia metrically opposed to the views of the Fenians, whose sole object is separation from Great Britain. Hence in all our colonies we find that Fenianism is regarded with aversion, and that it has taken root in America alone, where the form of government is open and losse, where the people enjoy the license of libertines in political matters, and where the wild genius of Irish dis content, not knowing exactly what it wants, may luxuriate with impunity. There certainly never was a conspiracy against law and order so fana tical in character, so widely spread, or so utt...

MARYBOROUGH. THE Chronicle of the 14th instant, remarks:— There have been several cases of robbery by blacks in this neighborhood during the week; two of them of a very serious character. On Wednesday night last, John Thompson, a miner, travelling to Maryborough, camped at I'engarie Creek, near Tooth's meat-curing establishment. Alter making a flre, ho went to the creek for a billy of water ; on his return he was uttacked by a number of blacks, who bound him with a Tine by the legs and neck, nearly strangling him. They then stripped him of a part of his clothing, and took his swag, saddle, bridle, clothes, and out of hu pockets £30 in notes of the Dalby branch of the Bank of Queensland, a half-sovereign, and two shillings, and then decamped. The man arrived in Maryborough yesterday, and showt about the neck and legs the marks of the brutal treatment he received.
