LECTURE ON THE MICROSCOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

LECTURE ON THE MICROSCOPE. ON Tuesday evening a lecture was delivered to the Young Men's Christian Association, by Mr. S. Diggles, the subject being "the Micro-<*> scope, and how to use it." The Rev. Mr. M'Gavin was in the chair, and after a few pithy remarks, introduced the lecturer, who commenced by speaking what the microscope had done for the present century, and went on to say that while the telescope dealt with generalities, the microscope dealt with parts of things, and the naked eye held a medium place between the two instruments. " For some time the lense of 1-16 th of an inch in diameter was considered the greatest magnifying power, but recently that has been much improved upon. With this instrument the scientific student has employment for a lifetime, and that of tho most charming nnd useful description. The eye itself has considerable magnifying power, and this may be proved by making a hole in a piece of card, which, when brought near the eye, appears larg...

OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 27. THE anticipations entertained at the date of my last as to a continuance of showery weather failed of realization, the last week having passed with only one or two very slight showers. The very slight rain already fallen will prove of immense benefit to the grass, it haying giren it a very nice spring, which, should we hare mild weather, the dews will keep up, should there be no more rain for a short time. The mild way in which the rain fell was all that could be desired for cattle, as, in their debilitated condition, a heavy rainfall, and the cold accompanying it, would have caused the death of hundreds. We are afraid, however, that the benefit to the farmers will be far from being so great as has been supposed, unless speedily followed by more. The crops in most cases having gone too far, while the temp tation it holds out to them to take advantage of a favorable opportunity when the surface of the ground is moist for sowing see...

ALBERT RIVER. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) April 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

ALBERT RIVER. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) April 24. A. THANKSGIVING service has been held on account of the late rains; and I am sure it was called for. I never saw such fine weather in my life as we have had lately. Copious showers lately. Copious of rain have fallen, not so heavy, perhaps, as usual, but still sufficient to do a vast amount of good. They fell principally in the night, and the sun during the day, together with the wind, dried v the ripening cotton without injuring the very ripe pods which have not been picked. These showers have continued to fall at inter vals «p to the present time. I am glad to be able to state that our thanks giving services were well attended ; while they were being held, showers of rain fell; and we have every reason to be grateful. What was a week ago as black as a bush fire could leave it, and on which a blade of green grass or any water could not have been seen, is now a beautiful sight for agriculturists - and others. Green grass has sprung up,...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 26. IT is very desirable that the Engineer of Roads should visit the neighborhood of Eden's Ferry, and make some little improvement in the present approaches, as complaints are fre- complaints quently madethatalthough the Government have taken the ferry into theii own hands, nothing whaterer has- been done so as people can get a horse and dray easily over. Indeed the road to the river, through the scrub on the southern side,is justas the twoblackfellows left it, and the dangerous bank down to the punt is horrible. A bucking horse going down to the punt must feel inclined to toss its rider into the stream. There are few horses that do not take a con siderable amount of persuasion to haul a dray out of the punt up there, and not a few hare let the dray back into the river. There was one in last week, and it was only with some difficulty and risk that the horse was got out at all, the men having to go up to the middle in water to loose the...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

TASMANIA. WE take the following remarks on the subject of Tasmanian debentures from the Launceston Examiner, of April 14:— A correspondence on this subject is published elsewhere. Our opinion is that if placed on a proper footing on the Stock Exchange—the interest made payable at the same dates—our debentures would keep about par. When the rate of discount in England is eight or ten per ! cent., every kind of stock not yielding this \ necessarily suffers a depreciation. At present Tasmanian debentures in private hands cannot be sold at par. Last year a broker held deben tures to the amount of £3000, and would have willingly parted with them at two per cent. ! discount, but could not find a purchaser, simply I because they were not negotiable stock with a , daily quotation. The sooner arrangements ore ' made for the consolidation of the public debt and its uniformity the better for the interest and credit of the colony. It is of great advan- ' taj,e to have stock upon the Exchange, a...

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, April 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, April 7. WITH reference to the first batch of Maori exiles, whose arrival at the Chatham Islands was noticed in my last communication, it seems to be the general opinion that, on the whole, whole, these people are well off. When the war first began, it was proposed in Auckland to send the prisoners taken in arms to these islands at onoe. This was opposed on the ground of its cruelty, and for the farther reason that it was not needed either bj the Governor or by the people, who, living in the South, knew little or nothing of our reasons for desiring to get rid of them onoe for all. As your readers know, the plan adopted was to shut the prisoners up in a hulk in Auckland harbor for a good many months, where they cost about £12,000 to keep, and then, at the Governor's request, to place them on the island of Kawau, from which they escaped without difficulty to the main land, and almost succeeded in rousing some of the ...

Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. WE have received files by the Yarra Yarra to the 20th instant. In reference to the late mail robberies the Empire of the 19th reports:—Two men, named Booth and Wilson, were brought before the Central Police Court yesterday, they having on the previous night been apprehended by detec tives Camphin and Finigan on suspicion of being concerned in the robbery of the Northern mail, near Bingleton, last Monday morning. No fewer than six vratehes 'were found on one of the fellows, tied up in a pocket handkerchief. The prisoners were remanded for a week. These two men are suspected to hare been also concerned in the late robbery of the Sydney mail between Campbelltown and Wollongong. It is supposed that they made their way to Sydney, and hence to Singleton, where they commenced operations by sticking up the Northern mail. The police having taken the matter vigorously in hand, succeeded in tracing them, and ultimately effected their capture. The ca...

INDIA. (From the Madras Times, March 14) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

INDIA. (From the Madras Times, March 14) ALL in India are anxiously looking for the appearance of Mr. Massey's budget, which he is said to have ready, and is expected to pro-<*> duce before the close of the present month. Nothing has yet transpired regarding bis in tentions, but the Friend of India confidently states two facts which inspire a hope that no additional taxation will be found necessary. The first is, that the opium sales have realised an amount two millions and a half beyond Sir Charles Trevelyan's estimate for the cur rent year, and the second that the cost of the Bbootan war, hitherto assumed to be about a million sterling, has really not exoeedea one quarter of that turn. Should the case be to, Mr. Massey's task will be much lighter than was anticipated. A letter from the Government of Bengal to that of Madras, informs the latter of the great prevalence of cholera in Pooree, and suggests that every effort should be made to prevent pil grims from this pr...

News by the Mail. (FROM OUR PARIS CORRESPONDENT.) February 27, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

News by the Mail. (FROM OUR PARIS CORRESPONDENT.) February 27, 1866. WE have just received the news of a revolution in Roumania. Prince Couza has been obliged to abdicate. All went off quietly. A provisional government has been named, and perfect harmony prevails amougst tfie representatives of all parties. The Roumanian revolution has been brought about with much prudence, and will quite put a stop to the plans of Russia and Austria, who were desirous of placing one of their creatures on the throne. The Senate and Representative Assembly met on the 23rd instant, and unanimously named the Count de Flandre, second son of the late King of the Belgians, Prince of Roumania. This choice need give no umbrage to the leading powers, for Belgium is too small a country to have any influ ence. The inhabitants of the Duchies will be fortunate to be governed by a prince brought up in constitutional principles. The fate of Prince Couza ought to be a lesson to all despots. The French Senate has vo...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

THE FLOWER GARDEN. Those who Intend flower growing could not possibly find a better time to commence opera-<*> tions than the present, the soil being in splendid condition for developing annual and other tender seed; and for transplanting and propa gating. While offering a few suggestions on this subject, we would advise all who have the opportunity, to visit the Botanical Gardens, being satisfied that an hour or two's observation will prove in every way satisfactory. The camellias are now beginning to flower, and during the next two months will stand un rivalled amongst the shrubs for beauty. Take up and store dahlias, propagate verbenas, heliotro piums, penstemons, shrubby calceolarias; plant early llowering bulbs; sow wallflowers, stocks. Collections of annuals may be sown, for early flowering in spring. Keep pelargoniums clean from insects by syringing and fumigation. Col lect all pots that hare been standing out through the summer, and examine them for fear of wat...

The Farm & the Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

The Farm & the Garden. SEVERAL items of importance to the agricultural interests have transpired dur-<*> ing the week. First amongst these comes the bill introduced by Mr. Groom in the Legislative Assembly, fur the purpose of defining what constitutes a bushel of maize, and which, to use the words of a correspon dent, '* it is trusted he will stick to till it becomes law." Since first we drew public attention to the grievnuces inflicted by the loose way in which the buying and selling of maize and other grains i were conducted, there has been a great deal of attention paid to the matter, and several things almost incredible have been made public. There is, now, however, every prospect of the grievances being remedied—thanks to the prompt way in which they have been looked after, Although perhaps of more local interest, the result of the deputation which waited on the Secretary for Lands and Works on Wednesday, is of great importance to the fanning community. It...

SYRIA. (From La Presse, February 20) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

SYRIA. (From La Presse, February 20) GRAVE events have again caused blood to be shed in the Lebanon. It is the reaction of the Christian population against the Turkish rule. Perhaps we shall see the same events repro- repro duced which led to a French corps being sent some years ago, under the command of General d'Hautpoul, to Syria, and perhaps tho Kastcrn question will be reawakened in out- of its most delicate points. With a view to these contingencies it will not be without interest to expluin the origin of this struggle, and to state the facts which have just precipitated it. A letter from Tripoli furnishes us with interesting details on this subject. The Turkshavejustexperiencedabloodv defeat. After having surprised and beaten Karam, near Djoumi, they hare been drivtn by UieMurouite leader even as far as into our town. Never was the Lebanon a witness to v more complete disaster for the Crescent. On Sunday, the 28th of January, the fight began at Benachi, five leagues from Trip...
