"THE WILD SCOTCHMAN." [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
"THE WILD SCOTCHMAN." [COMMUNICATED.] IT is trusted that no maudlin sentiment- ality will be allowed to deprive the black- guard who has been indulging for the last year or two in the sobriquet of the "Wild Scotch- man" of the prize he has been striving so hard to win — viz., a dance in mid-air at the end of a good stout string. By your own journal it will be seen that there is no lack of those who would willingly lionise the vagabond, and that only by strategem was a crowd prevented from gathering to do him honor on arrival at Bris- bane. Since his reception in gaol I believe the visitors who pay him court are both fair and numerous. Nothing gives the dear creatures who are privileged to have an introduction, so much pleasure as recognition as old school- mates ; or an assertion by the outlaw that he knew "that face." When these things are retailed to crowds who have not been privileged by an admission, with the assurance that " he is such a fine-looking fellow, and has a beard as ...

WRECK OF THE WANATA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 21 April 1866
WRECK OF THE WANATA. Another Australian passenger-ship has been lost in the Bay of Biscay, but fortunately on this occasion without any loss of life. Subjoined are the circumstances relative to the disastrous occurrence:— " The Queen of Beauty left London on the 2nd January for Melbourne, and in consequence of heavy weather brought up in the Downs, whicn she did not leave until the 23rd. On the 6th February, at noon, she was in lat. 46*13 N., and lon. 1015 W. Towards midnight she was a littlo to the westward, standing, with her bow north, under Bingle reefed topsails, foresail, mainsail, jib, spanker, and staysail. The wind was from west to west-south-west, with a very heavy sea running from north-west, and a thick haze hanging low on the horizon. The captain was on the deck. A ship was reported on the lee bow, and the Queen of Beauty's after-yards were thrown aback immediately to avoid a col lision, but this was impossible. The force of the blow was, however, diminished, and the st...

Sporting Items. THE QUEENSLAND TURF CLUB. THE committee of the Queensland Turf Club met on Thursday, at 1 o'clock, at Colonel O'Connell's Chambers, for the purpose of de-&lt;*> claring the entrances for the Maiden Plate, the Breeders' Cap, and the Corinthian Cap. Twenty hones are entered for the Corinthian Cup, and it is most probable that sixteen or seventeen of these will come to the post. Six horses are entered for the Maiden Plate. We are sorry to see that no New South Wales hones have been entered for this race; but it is the opinion of competent judges that no competitor from that colony would hare had a chance of suc cess against the field that Queensland has pro duced. For the Breeders' Cup five hones are en tered. We may mention that the Handicaps dose on the Ist of next month. The following are the names of the hones entered :— The Corinthian Cup, value 60 sots. ; with a Cup, valued 30 soys. for the second hone; and 10 stfrs. for the third horse; for all hones o...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1866. THE Government Land Bill has been read a first time, and at the request of a deputation of country members, it has been referred to a select committee. We are now in possession of a copy of the Bill, and a careful examination of its contents shows that the Government do not propose any radical change in the land laws, but simply the remoral of all obstructive conditions on the sale of land, and ample security that there shall at all times be a supply in the market suf ficient for any possible demands. The provi sions of the Bill show that the Government appreciate the necessities of the colony in its present state; that while every care is to be taken not to injure the pastoral interests or to interfere with the privileges which they enjoy, full provision must be made for the establishment and growth of other interests. The two do not really clash, and as long as no extravagant cUums are put forth on either side, but the ques tion is discu...

STUART MILL ON MIND AND MATTER. A NEW SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866
STUART MILL ON MIND AND MATTER. A NEW SONG. AIR—"Roy's Wife of Aldivalloch." STUART MILL, on mind and matter, All our old beliefs would scatter; Stuart Mill exerts his skill To make an end of mind and matter. The self-same tale I've surely heard Employed before, our faith to batter : Has David Hume again appeared To run a-muck at mind and matter? David Hume could mind and matter Ruthlessly assault and batter; Those who Hume would now exhume Must mean to end both mind and matter. Now mind, now matter, to destroy, Was oft proposed, at least the latter ; But David was the darling boy Who fairly floored both mind and matter. David Hume, both mind and matter, While he lived, would boldly batter; Hume to Mill bequeathed by will His favorite feud with mind and matter. Men think they see the things that be; But truth is coy, we can't get at her i. For what we spy is all my eye, And isn't really mind or matter. Hume and Mill on mind and matter Swear that others merely smatter ; Sense reveals...

Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866
Commercial Intelligence. THE breaking up of the drought has given universal satisfaction, but has at the same time caused the town trade to be dull. Country business is quiet, but in this branch more activity is perceptible. In the markets there is no alteration of moment, except an advance of £2 per ton on the Sydney Eefining Co.'s sugar. Flour is depressed, and although no change has been quoted in Adelaideflour, there is a proba bility of a further decline, in consequence of the heavy supplies coming forward from America.

The address was signed by 16 rural deans and 820 clergymen of the Archdeaconry of Middle sex :— " We X the Archdeacon and undersigned rural deans and clergymen ot the Archdeaconry of Middlesex, desire respectfully to approach your Lordship with the expression of our regret that in some churches of this diocese and elsewhere practices hare recently been introduced into the celebration of Divine service which, though claiming the authority of ancient usage, have never actually been used, or hare long been dis used by our Reformed Church, and which in tome instances are not only contrary to the cus tom, but to the law of the Church. The prac tices referred to are objectionable, not only as innovations, but also on account of their doc trinal tendencies. We need not point out to your Lordship the evils ...

WRECK OF THE STEAMER EXCELSIOR —FEARFUL SUFFERING. The Excelsior was wrecked off the island of Juist on Sunday, the 4th instant. In a letter from Captain Newton he states that about half an hour after striking all the boats were washed away, leaving those on board no alternative but to take to the fore-rigging. Here they remained until the following Saturday, without food of any sort, when they were rescued by the Guia ter life-boat, and safely conveyed to the shore in a most deplorable condition. The Bhip was a total wreck, but it was believed that a portion of the cargo might be saved. The Captain adds in a postscript that he was not able to leave his bed, his legs and feet being in a fearful state. On the same evening Mrs. Oalo, the wife of the steward, received from her husband a letter, which entered still more into detail as to the sufferings of the crew. He states that on the morning after the vessel struck they could Bee the land distinctly, and the inhabitants of the island...
