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

GAYNDAH. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) WE Gayndahites have been blessed with re-<*> freshing showers during the past week, and which are still continuing to come very gently, so that Nature will soon be clothed again in her again robe of brightest green. Our gold-fields are rather dull at present; I have met some of the diggers just returned from the Eidswold, rather disappointed after spending their money and time, and minus of the much desired dust. They are of opinion that two things are wanting, capital, and a quartz-crushing machine. If re port could be relied upon, there was a machine on the way up, but as yet it is only mere ru mor. It is to be hoped that it will soon be a reality. The reports from the Reed's Creek dig gings are not favorable. Some hard-working men have returned also, stating that the gold is too thinly scattered, and fine ; that a man with the common cradle and tin dish would not make his rations, and that before it becomes payable there must be a sl...

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 23. IT being moved, seconded, and carried, that the columns of both Courier and Queenslander should again be advised of our general well-<*> being, "your own" once more bares his arm to enlighten the benighted Queenslanders of the fact that the " Little Peddlington" and " Noodledom" of the " Pickerington" press. —" that insignificant corner of the Port Curtis electorate,"—of the wily shepherd of that ex traordinarily clean flock of " Pure Merinos," feeding at Bockhampton, that they hare suc ceeded most remarkably, by holding out induce ments to the brave tups of that pure flock to so butt coarse little flocks at Gladstone, and have kept them so, saying that they beliere the pure tups hare had their last butt, being blinded with tbeir rolling success.

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

MARYBOROUGH. WE have files from Maryborough to the 2nd instant, and take from the Chronicle the follow-<*> ing various items of news:— The weather during the last few days has been often threatening, but only a few light showers hare fallen, and the whole rainfall since the breaking-up of the drought, although it has greatly refreshed vegetation, has not sufficed to penetrate far down to the roots and has done nothing to fill the water-holes. The want of water was the cause of a good many miners leaving the Calliope gold-field, and those that remauwd had to content them selves with "fossicking" for a living, whilst they waited for more propitious seasons. By our telegram it will be seen an extraordinary piece of good luck has befallen some of them, in the lighting upon two nuggets of the value of nearly £400. We hope the good news will stimulate this flagging industry, and that it will be followed with like fortunate results. The petition to the Legislative Assembly on...

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) It is strange but true, that Mr. Melville's letter has failed to renew our belief in the sugar company, although we are all gratified to be patted on the back like good boys by Mr. Mel- good bojs by ville, for sticking to our belief in sugar, and acting up to it. Some months ago I told you of a robbery by blacks at Mr. O'Jtelly's house on the Upper Mary. Among the things stolen was a valua ble double-barrelled gun, of Purday*s make, and which cost between fifty and sixty guineas. Through the treachery of one of the niggers this has been recovered, and the traitor or traitress, having been united in wedlock to a native trooper, divulges from time to time where some long-lost treasure lies hid. The weather v all that could be wished, and the nights are gradually becoming cool and bearable. The grass is growing green and fresh After the rain, and there is some water in the water-holes.

WHAT VISITORS THINK OF THE BRISBANE BOTANICAL GARDENS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

WHAT VISITORS THINK OF THE BRISBANE BOTANICAL GARDENS. EXTRACTS from the Journal of Mr. John Gould Veitch, during a trip to the Australian Colonies and the South Sea Islands, published in the Gardeners' Chronicle, February 17, 1866:— Brisbane boasts of a beautiful botanical garden, prettily situated on the banks of the river. This establishment is under the director ship of Mr. Walter Hill, well known in England from having of late years introduced many of the finest of the North Australian plants. Mr. Hill also fills the office of Surveyor of Govern ment Agricultural Reserves. This takes him to all parts of the colony, and affords him op portunities of inspecting its botany. I was fortunate in finding Mr. Hill at home on my arrival in Brisbane, and he at once placed the whole of his establishment at my disposition, and showed me great kindness. The Botanic Gardens are about 30 acres in extent, and occupy the side of a low hill sloping down to the river. The Governor's house and dom...

OUR AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

OUR AGRICULTURAL PROSPECTS (From the Courier.) THE principle that the settlement of a new country progresses in a corresponding ratio to the increasing facilities afforded to the settlers for conveying their produce to market is so generally admitted that it is almost unnecessary to waste any time in advocating it. Something more than good roads, however, is needed to ensure the kinds being made use of in the manner most likely to advance the interests of the colony. To go to much expense in providing means of transit for produce would be a useless waste of money, unless due care were taken also to do away with unnecessary restrictions impeding production. If rail ways are to be paying investments, the lands in their vicinity must be thrown open   to those interests which are likely to cause the greatest amount of traffic. Now that the colony is committed to the construction of railways, it should be the policy of the Parliament not to let the lands in the neighborhood ...

TILLAGE BY STEAM POWER. (From the Melbourne Argus, April 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

TILLAGE BY STEAM POWER. (From the Melbourne Argus, April 17.) THE agricultural newspapers and other serials received from England by the last mail are chiefly occupied with these two subjects— the cattle plague and steam tillage. The first, most fortunately, has no immediate interest for the Victorian fanner; and though neces sary to be watched and investigated, with a view to future contingencies, it is as yet for him a speculative rather than a practical ques tion. Steam tillage, however, is a subject to which he might very advantageously direct his thoughts at once, with a view to giving them early practical embodiment. As we endeavored to show in a recent article, the Victorian farmer must in future look for his profit to cheap pro duction rather than to high prices. The day of the latter is over, we trust and believe ; but it does'not necessarily follow that the fanners' profits will be diminished. He has only to adapt bis practice to the altered state of things, as all other p...

HOMELESS BOYS. (From the Times, February 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

HOMELESS BOYS. (From the Times, February 19.) AMID all the discussion respecting the casual poor there is one point which has not yet received a due share of attention. Although in some respects the saddest part part of the evil, it might, if rightly treated, become the most easily remedied. We refer to the condition of the " casual" boys. A scene wliich we recently reported has brought this unfortunate class very vividly before our notice. The supper given the other night to the Homeless Boys of London reveals one of the most startling features of London pauperism. We are accustomed to think of pauper men and women, but we seldom realize the existence of a large class of pauper children, of little boys born to destitution, and tumbling about the world with no home, no father nor mother, no friend, and scarcely any food. Some benevolent people had be* thought themselves of the existence of this class, and sent round in* vitations, through the masters of the workhouses, to all the bo...

LABORERS, AS SEEN BY LORD SHAFTSBURY. (From the Daily Telegraph.) DORSET is very naturally disquieted be-<*> cause an occurrence which turned the eyes of the public upon the miserable condition of the agricultural laborer has fallen out within her confines. John Cross, as every body knows, was a Dorsetshire peasant, who stole a hurdle, and was punished by public opinion with a hat-full of silver and gold. There were foolish people who wished to make it out that this was done to encourage petty larceny; and more than one rural rector and bucolic squire wrote plaintive epistles in defence of honesty. They knew, of course, as well as all the world, that so remarkable an expression of the general feeling was made in Savor of Cross, not because it is less a theft fc^ moke away with a sixpenny hurdle than to purloin the crown jewels; but because the man, in his wretched social position, with his swarming family and slender weekly pit tance, was a type which shocked and shame...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXXVII. THE POUR CASTAWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXXVII. THE POUR CASTAWAYS. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. "LORD have mercy on us!" escaped the lips of all. It would seem that, by the strength and violence of the sea, the entire quarter-deck abaft the mizenmast, with a portion of its bulwarks, the taffrail, some parts of the stern windows and quarter galleries, had been torn from the ■hip, and this crazy fragment was all that inter vened between our four frionds and eternity. Being level with the sea it could not be cap sized, which, at least, was one good property. Lashed to such parts of it as were available, the poor victims clung there in desperation and silence, waiting, and praying in their hearts that the storm would abate; and now, as if its errand had been done, its object accomplished in the total destruction of the unfortunate Princess, the gusty wind began to lull gradually, though the agitated sea rolled high and block as ever. As the common saying has it, the waves " ran mountains high ...

THE FLYING CLOUD. This clipper ship, belonging to the Black Ball line, has not made a passage on this occasion equal to her former performances; but this may be accounted for by the extraordinary bad weather through which she had to pass. She was in the Bay of Biscay during that terrific gale in which the ill-fated London went down with so many souls, but happily she weathered the storm, and is now riding comfortably in Ifforeton Bay, with all her passengers in good health. At the oat-set of the voyage, there wag a good deal of sickness ; but, subsequently, the health of the passengers has been very good, and the mortality small, amounting to about 1 per cent., and the deaths, with the ex ception of ono lad, who died of consumption, were all infants. There wero five births.
