DALRYMPLE. (From a correspondent of the Port Denison Times.) April 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

DALRYMPLE. (From a correspondent of the Port Denison Times.) April 14. THE subject of inland mail communication is growing weekly of more importance, and is one which especially concerns us. Situated as we are within two days' ride of days' one municipal post town, and within five of another, a fortnightly mail punctually carried I out with each would seem a scanty allowance, ; when it is considered that the township, small . though it may be, v the " nucleus " of many ■ hundreds of miles of pastoral country. But what is the real state of the case ? A , quarter's salary is shortly due to the contractor • for the fortnightly mail to Bowen, of which | mails we have received four only since Christ mas, and those, apparently, only by the especial : favor of the Post Office ; the mails seeming to come and go entirely without regard to rule or J convenience. With regard to the advertised ! mail from Cleveland Bay, it is so punctually j carried out that its arrival and departure are totall...

BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

BOWEN. OUR files from Port Denison are down to April 21. The P.D. Times of that date says:— We learn on good authority that a batch of German immigrants, principally single women, may be expected shortly from Brisbane, either in the Spray or in the Emma Jane. If any argument were wanting to prore the desirability of establishing a direct line of steamers between this port and Brisbane with the smallest possible delay, that argument is supplied by the utter want of consideration for our interests evinced by the A.S.N. Company. In the ordinary course of things the Bangatira, or some boat in her place, should hare arrired here from Sydney on Tuesday or Wednesday at the latest. It now appears that we shall hare no boat from that port before the middle of next week. This information, though brought by the Williams, was only suffered to ooze out after her departure for Bockhampton. We understand that by the next Williams may be expected a minister for the Wesleyan Church. The Ber. Mr. Dix...

Extracts From the Papers. SUSPENSION OF THE ACT OF HABEAS CORPUS. THE following very impressive speech was delivered by Mr. John Bright, on the occasion of the introduction into the House of Commons, on February 17th, by Sir George Grey, of a motion to suspend the Habeas Corpus Act in Ireland. The views enunciated by Mr. Bright were supported j by Mr. Mill, the new ineml>er for West minster, and the groat political economist of the day. Mr. Roebuck and Mr. Horsman ' both dissented from the opinions put for ward by Mr. Bright. The Times, in remarking upon the debate, says it " was marked by a speech of wonderful power and eloquence from Mr. Bright on the misgovernment of Ireland, to which the Chancellor of the Exchequer paid the com pliment of saying that he had rarely, if ever, heard the member for Birmingham put forth his vast powers with so much, effect :"— Mr. Bright: I ought, perhaps, to ask the pardon of the Irish members present for coming forward to make some observations ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. THE S.A.

It was with the view of aiding in this mission that Inspector Hoe, with five troopers and a black fellow, started from Port Augusta on 4th Jan uary. On the 16th, they arrived at Mount Freeling, where they had to remain three days on account of the heavy rains that were falling. They then abandoned their carts, and continued their journey on horseback, reaching Lake Hope on the 26th, after having suffered much in convenience and discomfort from the scarcity of food. At the Lake they were joined by Dr. Walker, Mr. Dean, four troopers, and one or two others, and on Ist ...

DRAYTON. (From the Correspondent of the D.D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

DRAYTON. (From the Correspondent of the D.D. Gazette.) NOTWITHSTANDING the badness of last season's crops, the corn and potatoes in par-<*> ticular, the farmers appear quite undeterred, and are as busy as ever preparing the land for another trial. In many instances the potato crop ha* not been removed from the ground at all, not being considered worth the labor of digging out, and the corn has not produced on an average more than one-third a fair yield. The wheat has thriven well, and yet, strange to say, there does not appear to be that desire on the part of the farmer* for it* cultivation this Tear as last; the great majority preferring oaten nay, in anticipation, no doubt, of a good price for horse feed this year. The constituents of Mr. Groom in this locality are on the gui vice for the fulfilment of hi* promise respecting the •notion of the bridge over Westbrook Creek on the road to Warwick. No doubt he will move in the matter at a proper time, and we trust he wil...

DALBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

DALBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THE town of Dalby, which will probably long remain the terminus of the Southern and Western Railway, promises to become a place of considerable importance. The influx of importance. population and consequent rise in the price of land is already very striking. This must be doubtless gratifying to the in habitants and landholders in the town; but suggests to thoughtful minds the question, where on earth are we to get water when our population is doubled or trebled? Myall Creek is now the chief source of supply, and there are several very (air water-holes in it at present; but of necessity the creek must become the receptacle of the drainage of the town, or, at least, of the washings of the streets. after rain. As this creek seldom flows, and the waterholes often are pretty low, this is an evil which we may expect rapidly to increase; to the great detriment of the health of the inhabi tants who may be so unfortunate as to draw their water supply from this...
