IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, April 26.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, April 26.) On the evening of Friday last, a number of gentlemen assembled in Mr. Rodgers' hotel, North Ipswich, to entertain Mr. J.G. Walker to a supper on the occasion of his leaving the sapper leaving Primary School, Pine Mountain, to fulfil another appointment under the Board. Mr. M'Allen officiated a* chairman. After supper and the usualloyal toasts, Mr. William Bryceproposed the toast of the evening, namely, health and prosperity to their gue*t, remarking that it was two years since he opeaed the school, and during' that time he had found him a warm and sincere friend, and a zealous successful teacher. His removal would be severely felt in the district, the more so, as from a variety of un fortunate causes the school was at present closed, with no immediate prospect of being re-opened. Mr. Walker replied in a very feeling manner, after which several appropriate songs were sung, which greatly enhanced the pleasure of the evening.— Communicate...

The name of the assailant is Christopher Clark, and he has been employed as a shepherd on the Jimbour Station during the last twelve months. On Tuesday evening, while at tea in the private room of the bank, Mr. Green's attention was directed by his servant to a man lying on the verandah. The hall door was open at the time, and Mr. Green went out and roused the man up, telling him to go away. Clark got up and commenced to "square" at Mr. Green, who pushed him off the verandah, and he felL On getting up he rushed at Mr. Green (who was still on the verandah) with an open clasp-knife, cutting him severely on the left thigh.

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

GAYNDAH. THE Burnett Argus of April 21 reports:— The weather this week has been very plea-<*> sant; moreover, it has gladdened the heart of every person, having been showery and "good growing weather." We have every reason to be thankful for the rain, it has come just in time to save the last of the grass, and although it may be too late to assist the usual winter shoots, the saving of some of the old grass from total destruction is bo far good; besides, the rain will, we hope, cause the river to flow more rapidly, and thus enable it to clear itself of the slimy matter that has accumulated along iU banks during the long drought now broken up. The same paper observes:—Very few of the immigrants who arrived at the depot in Gayn day last week are now left disengaged we hear, and of those there is at least one whose conduct has had the effect of preventing the probability of engagement. We refer to a woman who was consorted through the streets by " a tall man dressed in bl...

NEW YORK COTTON MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

NEW YORK COTTON MARKET. WRIGHT'S Circular, of the 24th ult., says:— Our market has declined, from the prices quoted in my last, 2 cents per lb., and closes depressed. Holders maintain their position tenaciously and refuse all offers below 60 cents for middling—still believing in an early and, because prolonged to a later date than predicted, • more marked oessation in receipt*.

OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINGS. PART III. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINGS. PART III. BY S. G. M. BEHOLD us again struggling on with our sacks, but certainly making a better headway than we had done previously. Our friend, compared with us, was like a hare to a couple of tor- toiaes. I»m afraid (such U the egotism of human nature) that we applied the fable per* tonally. Jack openly hinted it once to our friend, though not in a savage manner, from observing him laugh m he (Jack) went foul of a stump. At length, after a tremendous struggle, cheered on by our " light weight" mate, we espied at a distance a house, and, as the evening was dark and chilly, we made up our minds to atop there. It bore the somewhat anomalous title of "The United Irishman." Our friend (himself, as I hare said, of that ilk) chuckled audibly at the sign, although he said nothing. Jack, from his shortsightedness, blundered bodily with his sack (myself bringing up the rear with mine) right into the midst of the guests assembled at the " United Irishman." Btartle...

Miscellaneous Reading. THE FOUNDER OF THE PAI MARIRE FAITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

Miscellaneous Reading. THE FOUNDER OF THE PAI MARIRE FAITH. TE UA HOROPAPERA, THE FOUNDER OF THE PAI MARIRE FAITH. —Everyone in New Zea-<*> land must take an interest in Te Ua, the founder of the Pai Marire sect, which has caused some- thing like a revolution amongst the natives, and has had such a painful interest for New Zealand colonists, by being the inciting cause of so many deeds of atrocity. Eren in England, consider able interest has been excited by the murderous proceedings of thi9 sect. Te Ua is now in Auckland, and certainly does not look like a man whose mind is in any way affected. He is of middle height, stout, with heavy features, and untatooed. Although he squints a little, he has by no means a disagreeable look. The following brief narrative of his life has been taken down from his own lips :—I am of the Taranaki tribe, and was born at Waiaua, Taranaki, before the missionaries came there. I was taken captive at the storming of the pa of Rimupiko, by th...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXXIV. MRASURES FOR DEFENCE CONCERTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXXIV. MRASURES FOR DEFENCE CONCERTED. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. THOUGH Ethel and Rose had retired to rest, the hour was not late, and Captain Phillips, Mr. Basset, and Hawkshaw, were lingering over a glass of wine in the cabin, when Dr. Heriot en- tered it. The pallor of his face, and the excited ex pression of his eyes, made them start with ex clamations of surprise and enquiry; and their alarm increased, when he filled up a glass with port and drained it, the crystal rattling against his teeth while he did so. " Hallo, doctor, what the deuce is the matter P" asked bluff Captain Phillips, changing color, or rather losing it partially. " Tou hare been for ward—eh?" " Yes, sir; and hare there heard more than enough to confirm our worst fears." Phillips aroae, and closed the cabin door. He then summoned from his berth Mr. Quail (as Mr. Foster, the second mate, had charge of the deck), and they, together with Mr. Basset and Hawkshaw, heard with undis...

The Sketcher. NOTES ABOUT THE TALGAI DIGGINGS. NO. I. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

The Sketcher. NOTES ABOUT THE TALGAI DIGGINGS. NO. I. [COMMUNICATED.] TALGAI does not go ahead as it ought to do. Why? Are the reefs not payable? Nearly all of them are. Is lsbor scarce? No. Why, then, should the development of a gold field which bida bo fairly to be permanent, rich, and populous, be retarded from month to month* and year to year ? To answer this question satisfactorily, it may perhaps be advisable to contrast this gold field with others of far less pretensions in the sister colony of Victoria. Talgai has labored under many and various disadvantages from its first start; the chief one perhaps being the absence of any capitalists from the other colonies, and the utter apathy evinced by the men whom we may consider as the local capitalists. Some of these last—say half-a-dozen—hare done their share by providing machinery, at great cost and under serious difficulties; and a few others, again, have to a greater or less extent backed working shares ; but the aggre gate of...

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. X. THE SILKWORM AND ITS PRODUCTS. (From Facts for Everybody.) BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. The silkworm is the caterpillar of one of the family Bombycidse, systematically known by the name of Bombyx Mori. The eggs are globular, and about the size of a mignonette seed: they mignonette teed; they may be purchased in Cerent Garden market, London, at the rate of about ten shillings per ounce. The good ones are of a pale slate or ash color ; whilst the imperfect ones are of a light yellow tint, the moth is of a light cream color, with transverse bands of a darker tint on the anterior wings, and a cresoent shaped central mark; the body, which is encircled by rings of a darker tinge, is covered, as are also the wings, with long velvety feathers, giving a particularly soft, thick, and warm look to the insect; the antenna; are also thickly feathered. The eggs are hatched in the spring, almost simultaneously with the bursting into leaf of the mulberry trees, upon which ...

BREAKERS AHEAD! [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

BREAKERS AHEAD! OUR legislature will be imperatively called upon during the present session to consider the Land Question in all its aspects and bearings. One portion of the squatting fraternity appears determined to press the extravagant propositions ad vanced by the Northern Land Leagnr. and the other portion—frightened apparently by the recommendations oi the Selector of Agricultural Ileserves—seem inclined to throw their votes and influence into the Opposition scale. It is evident that the country is on the verge of a momentous crisis. The whole of our land legislation— upon the liberality of which the Governor has been so accustomed to glorify himself— is evidently on the eve of a thorough re. vision and reconstruction. The aliena tion and pastoral occupation of Crown lands are alike to be subjected to scrutiny and amendment, and it is high time that some steps should be taken towards the consolidation of our nu merous land acts. How many there now are upon our Statute book we ...

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

VICTORIA. WE are in receipt of files from Melbourne to the 16th instant. The Argus, of that date, says in reference to the recall of his Excellency Sir Charles Darling:— Considerable excitement prevailed in the city on Saturday, in consequence of rumors that Sir Charles Darling had been superseded, and that Brigadier-General Carey had been appointed to assume the reins of Government in his stead. We believe that these rumors rest upon a good foundation, and that in a few hours, or in a day or two at most, official confirmation will be given to them. Having regard to the de plorable consequences which have ensued to the colony from the grave faults which have been committed by Sir Charles Darling, it is im possible not to feel gratified at the decisive step taken by the British Government to put an end to the period of mal-administration, from which we have for so long suffered. While, however, we are glad that a better regime is now likely to be inaugurated, we sincerely regret Sir ...

THE TROUBLES OF JAMAICA. THE correspondence between the Colo-<*> nial Office and Governor Eyre, in reference to the Jamaica massacre, was issued last evening. The papers are divided into two parts. The first contains Mr. Eyre's de spatches to Mr. CurJwell and their enclo sures. The first of these, dated October 20.. has been published. The other papers contain much of interest. In one despatch, dated October 23, Mr. Eyre writes that it was evident the "rebellion"' had been in stigated by the language and writing of persons in a better sphere of life, chief of, whom was Dr. Underbill and some of the Baptist ministers in Jamaica. Under these circumstances he (the Governor) had; deemed it right to examine the letters coming by the last English mail for certain Baptist ministers. One of these letters, from Dr. Underbill to the Rev. J. Hender son, of Montego Bay, Mr. Eyre enclosed, and he quoted from it the following passage:— In Jamaica the people seem to be overwhelmed wi...
