WRECK OF THE URARA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
WRECK OF THE URARA. The following particulars respecting the wreck of the Clarence and Richmond Steam Navigation Company's paddle steamer Urara have been received per telegram:— The Urara, Captain Merritt, from Sydney, was entering the Clarence River Heads at *3 p.m. on the 2nd inst., and although the weather was moderate at the time, she took the ground aft while rounding a buoy off a reef some distance from the breakwater. The strong rush of the tide immediately swept her on to the reef men tioned above, and the rocks worked a hole into her midship compartment. When the boat which conveyed the news to Grafton left the steamer the same night, the engine-room and fore part of the ship were full of water, and the after-part dry. Since then the wind, which has been blowing strong from south-east, and the tidal current have forced the vessel round, so that she lies in a different position. On the afternoon of the 3rd she was lyiag at aa angle of 45 degrees, with her head 6 feet out of ...

THE EX-SECRETARY FOR INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
THE EX-SECRETARY FOR INDIA. The English Mail, a new monthly publica-&lt;*> tion, the first number of which is to hand by the last mail, thus comments upon the change which has been made by the Imperial Govern- ment by the appointment of Lord de Grey to the important poet of Secretary of Stutc for India vice Sir Charles Wood : — The moment that India has so long sighed for has come at last. Sir Charles Wood is, politically, defunct. Wearied with petitions from the length and breadth of India, and, possibly, afraid to meet any further aesaults from fresh blood in the House, he has committed official suicide. Heaven rest his political soul! Sir Charles Wood, for forty long yean, has sat in the House of Commons, lie may have been endowed with extraordinary quick ness of apprehension, a retentive memory, a clear head, a logical intellect, a mind adapted for the transaction of business, and no doubt he was in every respect the very model of an able, efficient, hardwork ing mini...
A FENIAN REPUBLIC! (From the New York Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
A FENIAN REPUBLIC! (From the New York Herald.) THE second Fenian Congress assembled in this city on Tuesday, and we take ad-&lt;*> vantage of this gathering of the members of the Brotherhood from all parts of the country to tell them a few plain truths and give them a little serious advice. An Irish republic in this country, with its capital at Union-square and its money devoted to the support of a set of officials who cannot govern anything, not even themselves, is manifestly an absurdity. No matter how many resolutions may be passed in favor of O'Mahony, they cannot change the resolu tion of all sensible people to have nothing more to do with this person. No matter how strongly Roberts may be supported, he can never revive the delusive dreams of Fenian independence, which have cost so many people tens and hundreds of dollars. The farce of an Irish republic in America is quite played out, and it is time for the curtain to be dropped and the actors dispersed. The Brotherh...
GOVERNOR EYRE'S DESPATCHES. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
GOVERNOR EYRE'S DESPATCHES. (From the Times.) "THE deplorable events which have oc-&lt;*> curred in the island of Jamaica," are the subject of the longest, and not the least carefully worded, paragraph in the Queen's Speech. Her Majesty informs Parliament that she has instituted an impartial inquiry " into the origin, nature, and circumstances of the recent outbreaks, and the measures adopted in the course of its suppression." She defines, moreover, the object of Sir Henry Storke's appointment in the triple capacity of President of the Council, Go vernor, and Commander of the Forces. Mr. Eyre could not be the judge of his own conduct, yet he could not, as Gover nor, be placed in the position of a defen dant. An "impartial inquiry," there fore, could only be conducted by a new Governor, and "the due main tenance of authority during that inquiry" could only be secured by investing the person selected for this office with supreme military command. Beyond this, and the fact t...
SUGAR GROWING. ESSAY ON THE VARIOUS MEANS USED FOR EXTRACTING AND REFINING SUGAR. No. 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
SUGAR GROWING. ESSAY ON THE VARIOUS MEANS USED FOR EXTRACTING AND REFINING SUGAR. No. 3. (BY T. DE KEATING.) THE natures of the soil, climate, locality, and variety of the canes that tho planter wishes to cultivate are as many as circumstances which have too great an influence over the produce he will obtain to allow him to be dispensed study ing them with great carefulness, in order that he may shelter himself from the inconveniences ■which would otherwise result, or that he may have the benefit of the advantages which the knowledge of their action can offer him. Thus a variety of cane will not thrive well in a certain soil, or even in a country which will suit and ensure the success and growth of another description of cane. Tho season for planting, and consequently that for manufacturing, the care which will be given to the cultivation, the manure which will be used in more or less quantity, the various local influences are all as many muses susceptible to increase or diminish th...
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. No: XI.—AND LAST. ADDRESS OF THE AUTHORESS TO THE COLONISTS OF QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. No: XI.—AND LAST. ADDRESS OF THE AUTHORESS TO THE COLONISTS OF QUEENSLAND. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. MY purpose in compiling this treatise is insti-&lt;*> gated by a desire to introduce a useful industry into Queensland; and my claims to public consideration are firmly based upon the foundation of experience in the field of sericulture. I may perhaps, be excused for indulging in a little honest egotism on thia occasion, inasmuch that I was, personally, the pioneer of thia particular avocation in the colony of Victoria; by which expression, I mean to say that I was the first exhibitor of silk grown in that country; and, in con firmation of this statement it is only necessary that I should refer my readers to the published report made by the judges of silk in Melbourne, on the Ist of March, 1865, where special and distinct mention is made by Messrs. M. L. King, A. Martelli, J. J. Statzer, and Jas. Beid, to this, " the first systematic attempt to ascer ...
