Owing to some misunderstanding, little or no attempt was made towards the nasal decorative dis play customary on such occasions, but in all other respects the reception was as successful as it was cordial and spontaneous. The day had been proclaimed a public holiday, and an ramiMally large nmnber of tbe ctbizens tuned out io holiday attire and thronged the wharf and its approaches, while all- the vessels in in port spread every rag of available tmnting.

Gladstone. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875

Gladstone. fFKOU OUB OWX O0EBESFOKDEST.1 The late legal proceedings against Davenport and Tooth appear to be doing as much harm as good; for instance, three moneyed men with families, having disposed of their property in Victoria, came to Gladstone six weeks ago with thp intention of fa^riritT np lp^td for set tlement. They came well provided with maps and selected a tract for operations. They tJK*n waited the result of thf. Government prosecutions in the above cases, and, when the result was known, quietly cleared out, con sidering that no person's t^tlp to land is safe in Queensland, and «fa*™g that, with, all tiieir fMiT*K, the land laws of victoria were in advance of Queensland, for there you 'were sure of your title, which is always equal to money. Hie cry against the land jobber {speculator would be perhaps the better term) seems pfeasible,bntz£appearstome thathisoperations show the colonists the value of their land, and that his operations also prove a spur to wria^wrA, for a...

"Call a Man." [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875

'Call a Han.' Ast one who is disposed to try a laugh will do well to read on. John Jackson was a very indnstrioos, hard-working man, of twenty-three' years. Being the eldest child, and the only son, he had always remained at home, assisting his farti*** npon the farm. John was much respected by every one in the neighbourhood, and many a bright-eyed girl had secreUy thought she would like to change ber name to His. John Jackson. But John was no ' ladies' man.' The fact was, John was very bashful. Hie would rather hoe potatoes aS day than undergo die ceremony of an intro dnction to a young lady. Not that John disliked Out dear crestures-*-48r from it. We believe that he, in common with all bashful, well-meaning men, enter tained the very highest respect and admiration for them. And this, no doubt, was the principal cause of his hash&hiesB. He felt that they were superior beings, asd that be was unworthy to associate with them upon terms of equality. Bat we cannot stop to moral...

I STATION. GARDEN, & FIELD. $ DEATH TO THE USE*. It may be honed that; now the weather has broken, Ae thirsty earth wul soon be suffi oentiy darged with moisture to support tbe ordinary summer crops. The dry weather of the last month has been trying to the srowiiuT maize in the district, yet wnere it has advanced sufficiently to spade the eoS, and break the fiercest of the sun's rays, the crops have not suffered to any appreciable extent The great »^lf ii'liar^* ^o successful {inning at this time of year, generally speaking, is excess of moisture, heavy rains coming so rapidly one after the other that the opportunities to get ou Bie land to dear it of weeds or do any other necessary work are few and far between.
