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

CRICKET. The match between the Victoria and United Clubs was finished on last Saturday afternoon. Having been a close game from the commence-<*> ment, it created some interest. The total score of the Victoria eleven was 153, and when the stumps were drawn on the 21st the United score stood at 64 first innings, and 42 second innings, with four wickets down. The latter had, therefore, 47 runs to get to tie. Three cf the four who were out were among the best bats in the United eleven, and there was some doubt whether the remaining six were food for an average of eight runs each, 'lay was resumed rather inauspiciously for the United, for French, who had been playing steadily on the previous Saturday, and on whom the prospects of his side very*much depended, had hid stamps taken by a shooter from Fowles, the first ball of the over. None of the others made any stand. In the third over Geddes lifted a ball to leg, and was caught by Stevens; Goodall opooned a ball, and gave a ...

BROMUS SCHRADERI, OR FRAIRIE GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

BROMUS SCHRADERI, OR FRAIRIE GRASS. Yours, QUEENSLANDER. SIR: I was happy, in your last issue, to see the query of "Grazier," in reference to prairie grass; the more so, as I intended writing you (as per enclosure) on the same subject. I have tried "prairie grass" teed from balf-a-doren souroes, with the like result—failure and dis appointment in every instance. As my letter will show, no pare teed is to be had that I can disoorcr. Far better ia it for your correspond' ent to pay attention to tome of (he best native grasses of bis neighborhood. Some of them are sure to turn out well. If he has the means for going into it, lucerne, I beliere, is a safe crop, all events, I am giving it a trial, and I have seen it doing well at various places near Brisbane, at the Bald Hills, and the Pine River. [Owing to the late hour at which the article on " Native Grasses" was received, its insertion ia delayed till next issue.]

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 1.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 1.) AN accident happened on Sunday evening to the Rev. Mr. Draper, of Goodna. Mr. Draper had been conducting the services in the Presby-<*> terian Church, Ipswich, and was returning home Ipiwich, returning on horseback, when his horse shied at a drun* ken man lying on the road side near the Bod* bank Inn, and threw him violently. Mr. Draper was much hurt, and it was supposed that the left wrist was dislocated. Mr. J. B. Hooper, with several friends, having been out driving in a brake on Sunday evening, were on their way home from the race* course, and had arrived at the top of the hUI near the park, when the two hones commenced booking, and bolted at a tremendous rate down the bilL The gentlemen inside let themselves out behind, and escaped without injury. Ifr. Hooper, however, gallantly stuck to his ribbons, and finally succeeded in bringing the animala and the trap into town without accident, though he had several narrow escap...

THE NEW DREDGE FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

THE NEW DREDGE FITZROY. THE importance of promoting our river navi-<*> gation by clearing away the various impediments which still obstruct it has long been recognised by the Legislature. Whilst incurring the ex- penditure of a rery large amount of monej, it is satisfactory to know that in due time an ample return wili be reeeWed on the out lay. The first step taken by the Gorerament was to cut through the barrier which prerented resselt of eomparatirely small burthen from coming direct to the wharres of the citj. That work has been nearly completed, as has been made known through our columns. It was found necessary, howerer, that other works had to be executed, not of so difficult a nature perhaps, but still of a most utfle character, namely, clearing away the bars of silt which exist at rations distances between the metropolis and Ipswich. The or dinary sea silt dredge was not found to be suited to that purpose. Had it been so, the time which would elapse before its ...

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, April 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, April 14.) A CORRESPONDENT, dating April 12, says that some new and payable ground has been struck on this gold-field. The writer is not at liberty to name the locality, as, without rain, it cannot be worked. He has, however, received bis information " first-hand," and indulges very sanguine hopes of its bringing to light further discoveries on the advent of rain. A considerable number of stragglers have returned from the Cleveland Bay rush, and, despite the absence of rain, there is a more cheerful feeling with reference to mining affairs. At the Wolfang Springs rush there were on Monday last twelve European diggers holding miners' rights, and some Chinamen, in all twenty-seven souls. Deep-sinking was again re commenced, and hope with regard to its success appears stronger than ever, notwithstanding the ill-luck attendiug all former attempts. On Tuesday a miner, named M. D. Dunna, made application to the Commissioner for a prospect ing claim...

LATER AMERICAN NEWS. EXCITEMENT ON THE NEGRO QUESTION.-THE PRESIDENT ALL ISSUE WITH CONGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

LATER AMERICAN NEWS. EXCITEMENT ON THE NEGRO QUESTION.- THE PRESIDENT ALL ISSUE WITH CONGRESS. BY way of California we (Sydney Empire) have telegraphic news from New York, Wash-<*> ington and Chicago, to February 24. The Alta California of the 20th says:— _ " The news to-day, both foreign and domes tic, is more than ordinarily interesting. The President has vetoed tbe Freedmen's Bureau Bill, but for what reason has not yet been divulged. It is also reported that the Recon struction Committee has determined to invite certain members of the Cabinet to resign. The Senate of the United States, two years ago, attempted a similar game, but failed lamentably. It demanded that Mr. Seward should give up his "portfolio, but neither that gentleman nor Mr. Lincoln paid any attention to it." A correspondent of the same journal, writing from St. Louis nearly a month previously, thus indicates the state of opinion :— " According to present appearances the prin cipal agitatiou of the ...

News and Notes BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, April 24. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

News and Notes BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, April 24. SO often a lapse occurs in my communica-<*> tions of late years that there will at least be no surprise, however great may be the relief, when "Autumn's falling leaf" tacitly makes the usual proclamation in that case made and pro- Tided, and Cassio (or somebody else) has my place. At all events, the weather here is, and has for some days past, been hot enough to settle the hash of the King of Erebus himself. What can be the cause of it is a matter of speculation to thousands. Can it be that some incautious gnome, going to fill some wonderful lamp with petroleum down below, has set fire to the whole subterranean deposit, which is burning, and naming, and raging to find its way into upper air? Whatever it is, the atmosphere has for some time past been, with occasional exceptions of a few hours, almost unendurable; and the theory that the heat of the sun bearing directly upon the earth is not the sole cause of it might in...

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 2. WE had a succession of fine cool days during a part of the past week, admirably suited to all kinds of cultivative industry; but, yesterday, a continuation of heavy banks of clouds, rising from the north-east, gave indications of ap proaching change, and at sunset, a steady ram commenced, continuing through the night, and is at present falling, with every symptom of a day or two's visiUtion. Should such be the case, it will give a good opportunity for putting in seed on the lands which have been prepared since the former rain, and under any ciroum stances, it will give additional stimulus to that already planted. From a hasty glance at the Land Bill, intro duced by the Gorernment, it appears to offer every inducement to agricultural settlement, and every point of relief that could be reason ably expected. The careful manner with which almost every barrier to agricultural progress has been met, seems to give a pledge of an earnest dispo...

MACKAY. (From the Mercury, April 24.) LAND SALE.—The first Government land sale at Nebo has been held by the Clerk of Petty Sessions, Sydney Moore, Esq., and resulted most satisfactorily, only one lot out of those satisfactorily, only ■old haring been forfeited. The amount reft* liaed wai almost £260. Fatal Accidevt.—We learn from our Nebo Creek correspondent that, on the 16th instant, the blacksmith of Fort Cooper Station, while out for a ride on a rather spirited horse, was heavily thrown and found lying perfectly help less some few miles from the station. Dr. Tymons, who was sent for, attended with promtitude, and paid the most unremitting attention to the sufferer, who was, however,   past all human skill, and expired about 7 p.m.   the same evening.   | Raccto.—A preliminary raoe meeting was held at 8 o'clock on Saturday evening last, at the Royal Hotel, for the purpose of arranging the programme for the Mackay Race Meeting of 1866.

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

News of the Week. WE have been requested by the Secretary of the Brisbane Hospital to acknowledge with thanks, the receipt of a donation of £5 from Mr. George Cooper, Enoggera Creek Water Works. Thebe was a rumor in the town yesterday that the steamer Gnecring, from Mooloolah, was lost. This may have arisen from the fact - that she has been due now for more than ten days. All the witnesses in the case of the murder of Martin Farrell are expected by her at the assizes commeuee next Monday. Owing to the quantity of rain which has fallen of late, there is a good supply of water in the reservoir and in the two horse-ponds near Adelaide-street. The latter were completely dry during the late drought, and if the carters and other owners of hoises had combined together for only one day to deepen the holes, the effects of the water-fall would have been for • the future more lasting. Sohe men were employed by the Cor jporation yesterday afternoon to sweep the slush in Queen-street to the side...

MRS. HUDSON AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

MRS. HUDSON AGAIN. Her "enemies" seem to have at last got the gentle Amazon of Warwick in "nice little fix." At the meeting of the Licensing Bench on the 25th April, in re the application of Frederick Hudson, of the Australian Hotel, Mr. White said, in regard to this application he declined to sign it, and the following are the reasons assigned by the Police Magistrate: —On the 27th July last, John McGrath charged Frederick Hudson with illegally detaining two cheques of £26 6s. 8d. The evidence proved that McGrath, a man upwards of seventy years of age, was kept in the house for four days in a state of intoxication. Mrs. Hudson's witness proved that he went to bed drunk every night. When sick in bed one day he was supplied with liquor to the extent of nearly £3. When I spoke to Mrs. Hudson about the case she stated she paid the Government £30 per annum to make people drunk. On the 5th October, 1865, Frederick and Margaret Hudson were found guilty of assaulting R. M. Barnes, on the 2...

VISIT TO THE LOWER LACHLAN AND MURRUMBIDGEE. (From the Pastoral Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 5 May 1866

VISIT TO THE LOWER LACHLAN AND MURRUMBIDGEE. (From the Pastoral Times.) WE take the following from a lecture delivered by the Rev. R. Henderson, on his return   from the Murrumbidgee to Victoria:—"Some sixty miles upwards, from the junction of the Lachlan with the Murrumbidgee, stands Hay, the chief town of all that district; Maude, some forty miles further down, consists of a store, an hotel, and a few other houses ; Booli gal, on the Lachlan, some fifty miles across the plains, is much larger, and promises, ere long, to increase considerably, owing to the rapid settlement of the country beyond; Cooba, some eighty miles higher up, consists only of two hotels, a store, and the puntman's house. But Hay is a considerable squatting town, with about 250 inhabitants. The ground surveyed by Government was found to be inconvenient, and has been, by common consent, abandoned for the present site. Some say that a publican having preferred the latter to the former, erected an hum...

TOWNSVILLE. (From the Cleveland Bay Herald.) A PUBLIC meeting was held on Thursday evening, April 12, at the Criterion Hotel, for the purpose of taking into consideration matters connected with the Townsville Municipality. There was a large number of persons present, and after waiting for upwards of an hour be- hind the time mentioned in the bills, it was proposed by Mr. Carter, and seconded by Mr. Johnson, that Mr. Ross take the chair. The Chairman stated the object for which the meet- ing had been called together, namely, of nomi- nating fit and proper persons for the office of aldermen. Alter waiting some time, Mr. Black rose, and in a lengthy speech explained the Act to those present.

MAIZE MEAL AS AN ITEM OF HUMAN FOOD. SECOND ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

MAIZE MEAL AS AN ITEM OF HUMAN FOOD. SECOND ARTICLE. SINCE the appearance of oar first contribu-<*> tion on the value of maize meal as an article of human food, several communications have been received on the subject from parties who are in the habit of using the article, and ore, there fore, in a position to speak of its adaptability to this colony. Some of the writers do not agree with some of the receipts already published. Knowing that no such thing as perfection exists, we are not astonished at this. In justice to ourselves, however, it must be added tliat all we hare published on the subject was drawn from reliable sources. Perhaps the difference of opinion may Bpring from our later corres pondents never having tried the receipts given. Be that as it may, we intend to give such a variety that all will find something to please them. We have to express thanks to those corres pondents who hare already favored as with information on the subject—several portions of w...

A BUSHEL OF MAIZE? [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

A BUSHEL OF MAIZE? SINCE the propriety of defining what con-<*> stitutes a bushel of maize was first introduced to our readers, there has been much discussion on the subject. Unlike many things similarly treated, however, this is evidently destined to arrive at a practical and satisfactory issue. The Bill introduced by Mr. Groom, the member for Drayton aad Toowoomba, has met with the unanimous approval of the Legislative Assembly on itt second reading. The only question likely to arise in co'XJnittee » the weight to be fixed for a bushel. On this question, one writer, in effect says that 60 lbs. is the proper weight for a bushel, no matter of what grain, forget ting that 60 lbs. in the case ot oats would be nearly if not quite a bushel and a half; that while anxious to define what» bushel really is, •ad to prevent cheating, the introducer of the bill tried to keep the bushel as near the old standard measure as possible, remembering that there are such things as three a...
