OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINGS. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINGS. PART II. BY S.G.M. IN my last I said that "at 2 p.m. we were fully equipped in stores and everything for our journey over the Blue Mountains." To contain and carry these stores we had purchased a couple of Mckf, which, from the frequent in* stalments on our way, had now become so ex panded with prorender, ai to present serious obstacles to locomotion. This matter of "prog," however, we deemed of vital importance; as we had no idea of there being either stores or houses of acoommod&tion on our way to the Western El Dorado. But, intensly anxious as we can imagine our readers to be to arrive with us at our magnifi cent claims, we would crave their indulgence s> moment while wo describe (for the benefit of new chum posterity) our porsonal " rig " m we set tail. (Retrospectively, we often chuckle over it ourselves.) Well, then, behold us adorned as follows:—Hats, of the spedee colonially called " stove-pipes;" coats, black swallow-tails (newest cut) ;...

Miscellaneous Reading. THE CLASSES FROM WHICH BUSHRANGERS ARE MADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

Miscellaneous Reading. THE CLASSES FROM WHICH BUSHRANGERS ARE MADE. IN a late communication, our Sydney corres-<*> pondent thus directs attention to certain remarks published in the New South Wales journals respecting the origin of the bushrangers at pre- sent distracting the Australian colonies:— The Herald of this morning wants to make it appear that the free selectors are the bush rangers—one of the most abominable and cun ning misrepresentations that ever proceeded from cunning consummate; and I hope that the author of free selection, who is now on a visit to Queensland, will take some steps to get statistical evidence produced in disproof of the vile slander. The bushrangers didn't by any means belong to the agricultural interest, as I think experience has already shown, and the future will make still more apparent. But it is positively revolting to observe the efforts that are being made to upset free selection as a principle, not, I do firmly believe, in the in ...

PURSUIT AND CAPTURE OF BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

PURSUIT AND CAPTURE OF BUSHRANGERS. THE Maitland Mercury's Stroud correspon- dent writes, under date 31st ultimo:— On Friday last, sergeant Finlay, with ser- geant Kerrigan and constable Sculley, of Mait- land, arrived, bringing with them Mrs. Thun- derbolt and one child, and safely lodged her in the lock-up here. It appears that Thunderbolt made his escape two days previous to the arriral of the Stroud and Maitland police at the camp. The Manning police came upon him in the very act of skinning a bullock. The moment he espied the police he made off to the camp, where he leaves the horse he was riding, and takes another, a fine racehorse, I believe. He was closely pursued by one of the police (Buckley) and a black tracker. When within a short distance of him the hone Buckley was riding fell in jumping a log, and hurt his rider much, but still he followed on; the black tracker, when Buckley's horse fell, pushed up close upon him, but was afraid, and turned back, stating that he thoug...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXX. ROSE AND DE. HERIOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXX. ROSE AND DE. HERIOT. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. SUPPER was over in the cabin, and the little community there would soon be separating for the night, or "turning in," as it is technically named. " How brightly the itars are shining," said Rose, as she peeped up through the skylight. " Should you like to go on deck for a mo ment ?" asked Dr. Heriot, in a low Toice, as he hastened to her Bide. " Yes—for a moment only." " Take caie of chill," said Mr. Basset, warn ingly. " Take caro rather of yourself, Miss Hose, and, of all things, tako care of the doctor," said Captain Phillips, laughing. " Manfredi has charge of the deck; see how she is trimmed aloft. Report to me when you coma down, and then I'll turn in." Bose colored on hearing the captain's banter ing tones, as she threw a shawl over head and shoulders, took the doctor's ready arm, and hastened up the companion-stair. Ethel smiled sadly at her joyous and girlish sister, for she had seen how ...

IMPORTANT TO THE LOWE-LY MINDED! [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

IMPORTANT TO THE LOWE-LY MINDED! HOUSES GONE UP!-NEW ERA IN BAL-LUNACY!! We understand that Professor Lowe, the great bul-lunatic and here-or-not, to meet the demand for homes in New York, will arrange a range of balloons for residences. The space above the city is laid out in aerial avenues and streets, corresponding to those on the ground. The avenues are named from the bodies of the solar system —'Sun Avenue," "Mercury Avenue," &.:., —while the names of the ttrocts are taken from the fixed stars. The balloon dwellings front upon these avenues and streets—forming the parlor story of the city, and making the inhabitants of the ground live in a-latement. Those who wish an elevated situation, and all who have difficulty in " raising the wind," will prefer these residence*. 80 will sportsmen —as every tenant will have his own pair o' shoots. Those balloons overhanging the Croton Reservoir offer obvious opportunities for fishing. These dwellings 'are offered without rents, as r...

DARLING DOWNS DISTRICT. Botanic Garden, Brisbane. November 30, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

DARLING DOWNS DISTRICT. Botanic Garden, Brisbane. November 30, 1865. SIR, —In accordance with your instructions of the 6th September last, relative to the laying out of several more agricultural reserves in the Darling Downs District, I have to report that, in   the absence of any definite instructions as to the particular localities to be visited, I have thought it necessary to observe the following principles:— The first is the desirability of selecting the agricultural reserves as near as possible to the leading thoroughfares of the country, in order that they may have the shortest and most facile outlet and inlet to the traffic, which alone can render their cultivation successful. The second principle is the expediency of associating these reserves, as far as practicable, with townships already proclaimed aud popu- lated, in order that vested interests may not be imperilled and old sources of prosperity sacri- ficed. The third principle is, perhaps, a new one, but n...

THE STATE OF PARTIES IN THE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

THE STATE OF PARTIES IN THE ASSEMBLY. MEEANCHIN. IT is very amusing just now to watch the position of parties in the Assembly. The demand made for sitting-room upon the cross-benches is astounding, and it is a mat- ter of speculation whether the second form on the ministerial side won't have to be re placed. Men who used to sit behind the treasury bench, wearing a stern and thoughtful aspect, as became the chief up holders of a defiant ministry, now squat quietly down in close proximity to the Sergeant-at-Arms. And where is Taylor, the bulldog or the bully—whichever you like—of those back benches ? People say he is not going to put in an ap pearance this session, and the marvel is, how things will go on without him. Can he be staying away because he fears the result of the collision which must take place between the Government and the squatters, or is it because he owes sucli allegiance to Macauster that, if he cannot be for him, he will not even mingle with those who wish to side a...

THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. The following second Report of the Com-<*> missioner of Police has been printed and pre-<*> sented to both Houses of Parliament:— Police Department, Brisbane, 15th February, 1866. Bir,—l hare the honor to submit my Annual Report upon the condition of the Poltee Force of this colony. In my report for the year 1864 I suggested several alterations in the management of the force, some of which were adopted, and some I consider it my duty to again urge upon the Government. Amongst those adopted were the providing their own clothing by the members of the force, instead of its being as heretofore served out by the Government. The constables having to pay for their uniform themselves will no doubt be more careful of it, and as the/ can, as long as they adhere strictly to the regulation pattern, supply themselves at any shop they please, it will not be necessary for the Government to keep so large a stock on hand as formerly.

METROPOLITAN DISTRICT COURT. SATURDAY, APRIL 14. BEFORE E. Shepherd, Esq., Judge. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

METROPOLITAN DISTRICT COURT. SATURDAY, APRIL 14. BEFORE E. Shepherd, Esq., Judge. TUFNELL V. WATTS.—This was an interpleader issue. At the February sittings of the court, the plaintiff recovered a judgment against the defendant for £30 6s. 8d., rent of a house on Wickham Terrace. An execution was issued, , and a seizure was made of certain household I furniture in a house in Adelaide-street, rented 1 and occupied by the defendant. On the levy ' being made, a Mr. Pike claimed the goods under : a bill of sale, dated 29th January last. The case was then brought into court, for a decision as to whether the furniture belonged to the defendant or the claimant. In the bill I of sale, the defendant was described as " in spector, &c." On the part of the plaintiff, it was argued that his occupation ought to have been fully stated; "Inspector. 4c." was not a full | description, and, therefore, the bill of sale was ■ invalid. The defendant, iv his evidence, said he i received £30 from M...

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 14. THE events of the present week having been something over the ordinary, I hasten to set them before you. On the authority of a letter from the Govern- authority the Govern ment of New South Wales to a gentleman of the district, who has unceasingly interested himself in the matter, the nioe little sum of £200 has been granted, as its share toward* the establishment of a punt here. Now we begin to see our way clear in the connection of the two colonies at this their most important crossing, and here, to confirm this statement, come thousands of sheep (70,000), under the charge of Mr. Hill. The first instal ment of this vast flock crosses the river to-mor row ; and in this there will be no difficulty, as the present extended drought has reduced the depth of the crossing-place to a few inohes. Where they will find grass is a question I would not like to answer. They seem in good condi tion, however, and tolerably able to put up with a...

NEW ZEALAND. IMPORTANT FROM OPOTIKI.—At the time the Sturt was discharging in Opotiki river, on Thursday last, the camp was nearly deserted, Colonel Lyon being out at the time with a large force in quest of the enemy. Before the Sturt left, Major George galloped in with the intelli gence that a Hau-Hau pa in the Whakatane valley, believed to contain Kereopa and other noted insurgents, was quite surrounded bj the troops; that the country was comparatively clear, and that the inmates had little chance of escaping. Major George's object «n coming to camp was to get the assistance of every man who could possibly be spared. Wamoaitxti.—A melancholy boat accident occurred at the Wanganui Heads yesterday.

News by the Mail. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) London, February 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866

News by the Mail. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) London, February 26. THE seventh Parliament of our good Queen's reign has assembled under circum-<*> stances of unusual interest. With the new House of Commons we have a new Premier, who is to inaugurate, so his friends say, a new era in politics. The Sovereign, after some years of seclusion, emerges once more into public life and graces the assembly of the Legislature with her presence. It was evidently a great effort to her, but besides that, the omission to welcome a new Parliament would have been a virtual abnegation of her Royal duties ; the inten tion to ask Parliament for a dowry for the Princess Helena, whose marriage to Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein Sonderburg- Augustenburg (heavens! what a name!) formed the topic of the tirst paragraph of the Royal speech, made it a necessity that she should not give Parliament or the press occasion for complaint. The ceremony, as had been announced, was somewhat shorn ...

OPENING OF THE IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. (From the Home News.) In consequence of the general election and of the assembling of Parliament, the session was formally opened on February 1. The swearing in of peers and of commoners, so as to consti- tutes both Houses before the delivery of the Queen's speech, occupied threo days. Mr. K. Denison was re-elected Speaker, with the unanimous approval of all parties in the House. After a long retirement from public life, but not from public duty, her Majesty opened the seventh Parliament of her reign on Tuesday, February 6. If divested of a few of the usual observances, the ceremony on this occasion was in no way shorn of the splendour and pomp which ought necessarily to accompany one of such an important nature, and there was cer tainly nothing wanting out of doors to render the state pageant as brilliant as any one in which her Majesty has ever appeared during her reign ; for the* weather was indeed preter naturally bright and clear.
