GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. Yours. JNO. FARMER. Oxley Creek, May 2. SIR: You have already kindly supplied us with useful information relative to the grape vine. As to quality of land best suited, quality of fruits best for table and best for wine. Also quality of manures and time for applying them. Perhaps you will kindly supply more useful hints as the proper distances to be observed when planting. Trenching deep is slow and expensive work. It should be every man's aim to get as much as he can into his land con sistant «ith proper management. Somes of us here are for single poles, while more are for the espaliers. Perhaps you can point out the material differences. I need not say which is the easiest to [Our own choice for training the vine, in this climate, is the trellis. It i« best, in our opinion, for spreading out the foliage, for protecting the fruit, and for safety in case of high winds. We trust that some of those correspondents who hare already favored us on the subject of gra...
LOGAN RIVER AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
LOGAN RIVER AFFAIRS. Yours. TRAVELLER. Brisbane, May 3. SIR: My attention having been drawn on Saturday last, to a remark in your Logan cor-&lt;*> respondent's letter respecting Eden's ferry, but he does not allude to many other defects in the I working of the same, which it is the duty of the Government to see remedied. When it was reported that they had taken the ferry from Stone into their own hands and had leased it for two years to Mr. Eden, on a proposition from that gentleman to make various improvement* on the old system, the public naturally imagined that many benefits would accrue to them by the change. But the Government having granted the lease on certain conditions, have seemingly not thought it worth their while to a sccrtain whether their lessee was performing his portion of the contract, or carrying out the regulations en forced by the Act. One complaint against Stone, was, I believe, that people wero kept waiting some time before they could cross the ferr...

Country Intelligence. THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866
Country Intelligence. THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 3. THERE is not the least doubt that the new Land Bill has greatly disappointed every farmer's expectation. I hear great complaints made in this neighborhood, and everybody feels everybody that the " Comprehensive Land Bill" is just another step below the bill of 1863 ; just such a sliding step as that of 1863 was below the original bill of 1860. There are, no doubt, a lot of nor*l ideas proposed, but where are the improvements for farmers on agricultural re serves P They are simply sliding away. It may be all well enough to leave the fencing clause out and substitufe a valuation scale, which the settler will actually benefit by so far as returns are concerned ; but where is the leasing clause ? Decidedly detrimental to agri cultural reserves will the best of schemes be if it cuts out that particular advantage. Go vernment may say that that advantage has never been taken to any extent; but then it was never likely to...
