OPERATIONS FOR MAY. THE FARM AND KITCHEN GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

OPERATIONS FOR MAY. THE FARM AND KITCHEN GARDEN. SINCE last we had the pleasure of addressing the readers of the Queenslander in this column, a very great change for the better has taken place in our prospects for the winter now so close at hand. Bain has fallen, more or less, over the entire colony; and the probabilities are that there will be abundance of grass for winter use before frost sets in. Those who study the gP wind and weather" reports said such should be case ere long, being convinced that a Jtgyt days of south and south-east wind is sure to bring wet. Of course there must be con siderable surmise in reference to the probable weather we are likely to have, but were those who take notice of such things to record their experience more fully than is customary at the present time, we might by-and-by arrive at something more definite on the subject of the weather than is known at present. The sowing of oats and lucerne is being pushed ahead as rapidly as circumstances will p...

WARWICK. THE following items of local news are from the Argus of Wednesday, April 25:— ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY.—A meeting of the committee of the above society was held last evening, at their office, Albion-street^-C. H. Green, Esq., in the chair. The committee proceeded to the society's grounds to inspect the fencing, Ac., now in course of erection. The work was declared very satisfactorily done, and immediate steps are to be taken to erect cattle yards, sheep pens, horse enclosures, and also to clear the ground of dead timber, small trees, and stumps. Instructions have been given to the secretary to leave the larger and more shady trees standing, and to spare no pains to have the grounds suitably laid out for the approaching show.

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

BOWEN. THE Times of April 11 thus complains of the mail arrangements:— We were deprived of the advantage of an- swering our English letters, which only arrived last evening per Williams, some hours after the departure of the Souchays. Tfao mail consisted of six boxes and two large bags, which it will take our indefatigable postmaster, unaided as he is, half the night to stamp and sort. It it too bad we should not get our home correspondence for over three weeks after our more fortunate friends in Sydney. A meeting of the provisional committee of the Bowen Sugar Company was held at Wills' Hotel yesterday afternoon, their number being augmented by Messrs. W. Clarke and J. F. Morton, who were requested to act. Mr. Kelsey read an elaborate statement of the probable ex penditure and profits, each item being discussed seriatim by the committee, two of whom hare had some experience among sugar plantations. These estimates were approved of by tho com mittee, together with a more detailed pr...

MACKAY. (From the Mercury, April 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

MACKAY. (From the Mercury, April 11.) THE BLACKS.—Amid the other vermin har- bored by the thick scrubs and luxuriant grass of the Mackay our "mutual friend" and brother the black holds a prominent place. At any prominent place. any hour the smoke from his camp fires may be seen ascending the hills, forming his favorite camping ground; from whenoe to divert his leisure and vary the monotony of fish, wallaby, and roots, he makes inroads now on some un protected gardener and anon upon the fat beeves of the resident squatters. A short time since and the gardener's on the North side was a favorite calling place, the dusky gentry coming nearly every day and walking off every un- considered trifle they could lay their hands upon. Mr. Morris, however, whose solitude peculiarly exposed him to these aggressions, has got a companion and a fair stand of fire-arms to boot, ample reason for the discontinuance of the visits to which we have alluded. Latterly therefore the blacks have reverted to t...

NORTHERN ROUTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

NORTHERN ROUTES. THE following interesting letter was published in the Port Denison Times, April 4. It is from Mr. Charles Collins, of Lynd River, a gentleman competent to treat the subject fairly and cor- rectly :— Knowing the interest taken by the public of Queensland in tlie extension of communication with the Northern Forts, I venture to send you an account of a recent expedition which has definitely set at rest the question of the existence of an easy track into Card well from the in terior. On the 2nd of March, our parly (six in number) left Cardwell, and keeping ulong the track followed by M'Boberts' party on a previous occasion, after travelling about thirty miles in a generally north-westerly direction, left the level country and struck into the scrubs of the Coast Range. A blacks' track, evidently much used, which we followed, took us along a leading spur for about fire miles, when we found ourselves over the range. After cutting through two more miles of scrub, we emerged...

DOINGS OF THE BUSHRANGERS. CAPTAIN THUNDERBOLT'S WHEREA BOUTS.— [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

DOINGS OF THE BUSHRANGERS. CAPTAIN THUNDERBOLT'S WHEREABOUTS.—   Yesterday's Maitland Ensign says:—A gentle- man who has just returned from the Namoi River informs us that the bushranger Ward, alias Thunderbolt breakfasted at the Tambar Springs public-house, head of Cox's Creek, some fifty miles this sides of the Namoi River, on Sunday, the 8th instant. The captain rode up boldly to the public-house, and ordered the landlord to prepare a good breakfast for him. The host, Mr. Humphreys, at once recognised him as a person whom he had seen before, but he could not recollect his name. The bush- ranger made himself quite at home, and was somewhat chatty, but did not make use of any improper expression, nor did he attempt to "stick-up." As soon as he had satisfied his   appetite, he paid his score like a gentleman and rode away—bidding the landlord good-bye. There were two persons in the house at the time who appear to have known Thunderbolt well, for no sooner h...

Id., out of which the directors proposed to deolare a divi dend of 2} per cent., free of inoome-tax. The Chairman, in moving that the report b* adopted, observed there was no doubt that when he last addressed the proprietors the affairs of the company presented a ytrj gloomy aspect. They had, up to the cud of the last financial year in Australia, lost a considerable amount of sheep by diseaso, but they had felt they should continue their exer tions, and they had hoped that by so rioinf they would effect an improvement in their pre spects. He was happy to say that the good results they had anticipated had been fully realised, and they now stood ...

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, April 7.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 28 April 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, April 7.) THE journal of the above date contains an article upon the committal, for murdering a blackfellow, of Mr. Gaden. We extract from it the following paragraphs:— A new feature at the Copper Smelting Works is the commencement of the refining process, and the turning out of pure copper in cakes of 18 lbs. to 20 lbs. These have a much better appearance than the large pigs of pimple cop- per ; they are more convenient to handle, less destructive to the drays, and consequently much preferred by the carriers. They save ten per cent. in carriage, too, an important consideration where means of transit are so inadequate as here. Dr. Candiottis has kindly furnished us with particulars of a recent murder by the blacks at Tryphena Vale, Mackenzie River. About the middle of last week, a man named Julius Kit- chel, who was shepherding about eight miles from Tryphena home station, was missed from his hut. On the 29th ultimo, Mr. H. M.

THE long-promised letter receiver was on Tues- day erected on Petrie Terrace, at the corner of the road leading to the old butts, and opposite the Terrace Hotel. This will undoubtedly be a great convenience to the public, and it will no doubt make the inhabitants look forward with renewed anxiety and expectation for the fulfil- ment of the late Postmaster-General's promise that the postal delivery should be extended to them. The district is a large and very rapidly increasing one. We understand that previous to the departure from Brisbane of Mr. T. J.

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

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE hopes expressed in my last have been happily realised. A continuation of fine steady rain has relieved the thirsty vegetation of our soil, hss filled our water-courses, and relieved all those murmurs and complaints which had arisen from the drought. The blessing has been so graciously dispensed that the guiding finger of an All-wise Providence cannot fail to be traced in the gentle rainfall which soaked the gasping earth, directing the intervals wliich seemed to be allotted for its absorption, and then by its steady continuation completing that thorough saturation which, had the showers been short and heavy, would have flo*n hastily to our creeks and gullies, without conferring a tithe of its present advantages. Our bare pasture lands are being rapidly clothed with new shoots of grate, whith, by their vivid green ness, recal recollections of an English spring, with its smiling meadows and verdant pastures' There are in Queensland as in ot...

POTATOE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

POTATOE CULTIVATION. IT was with the greatest pleasure that for several weeks we gave up a considerable portion of spaceto a discussion on potatoo cultivation. The drought, which it is trusted is now broken, had such a depressing effect on almost every thing, that no great wonder can be felt at the various writers taping into silence before any thing definite had been arrived at. Through the kindness of a friend, we have been put in possession of a file of the Qardeneri Chro*iele % In the number for November 27, we find an article on this same subject of potatoe cultiva tion—showing that it is not only in Queensland that growers are bothered in bringing the valuable tuber to perfection : disclosing a state of affair*, in fact, which we trust will instill new vigor into the hearts of our settlers to go on with their experiments and improvements, just as their brethren on the other side have been and are doing at the present time. It would seem that very great improvements in the sele...

THE FENIANS IN QUEENSLAND. MURPHY. Ooragoow, May 1. SIR: The letter published by you (as sent by me) last week, has proved a bombshell! The traitors who hold their midnight orgies in a certain disreputable-looking huddle of white-ant eaten boards (how like the cause they would like to see succeed!) in Queen street, Brisbane, hare been trembling ever since! While trying to butter-over their evil deeds, a sharp eye has been kept on the frontdoor, that certain Ouy-Fawkes looking indiriduals might escape by the back should the Tigilanoe committee make it« appear ance. But, my eye! is upon them ! They hare roused the British lion, which the charming cli mate of this portion of Her Majesty's dominion* had induced to slumber. What do the sellers and wearers of the vile Fenian hats and goggles think of that P What do the genteel young men (not the little stumpy ones) think now ? We know their little game, and all about the mysterious carpet-bags, etc. I am Tery near making a disclosure, Mr....

The price of bread is giadually falling, and will BO on be at the old rate if flour continues to come down. I deny the correctness of her statement, and if the even baked her own bread the could not do it Such growlert at " Mother of a Family" are a nuisance.

THE PRICE OF BREAD AND MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

THE PRICE OF BREAD AND MEAT. ONE WHO PAYS. SIR: While happy to see the "Mother of a Family" again in arms against those who threaten her children's bread, I trust the good lady will allow me to point out a mistake she has fallen into: The butchers, with very Urn exception*, hare not reduced their prices. Thej did at" first, immediately after the outcry, pretend Uy let the price* down, "to nut the times." viz., to 3d. and Skd. for beef, and 4d. for mutton; but lately the bulk of them hare quietly added Id. per lb., to all descriptions. This they do to those who do not examine their account!, dose; but they hare no hesitation in supplying others at a lower rate. As " Mother of a Family" says, there is now an opposition. First-class meat being offered for cash, in differ ent parts of the town, for 2d. and 2Jd. per lb. respectirely for beef and mutton. As we are assured these prices pay when no bad debts are allowed, it is the duty of all housekeepers to encourage these enterprising par...
