WINE MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
WINE MAKING. THE following letter on this subject appeared a short time ago in the Melbourne Econo-&lt;*> mist:— Sir, —In view of your very flattering reference to niy short paper on wine-making, it may teem, hypercritical and sliainefully ungrateful besides, to take exception to your remarks on a minor point; yet this I feel disposed to do. In your own elaborate defenco of Southern Victoria as a field for viticulture, you appear to take it for granted that I share the common prejudice, that this district is ill adapted for the vine. I should be sorry if my language could bear thii con struction, for I had no intention of endorsing the views of the Australasia* on the subject. On the contrary, I know that excellent wine hat been made in the vicinity of Melbourne, and I am confident that much fitter winoi will yet be produced when the best cepaget hare been dis covered and utilised. But at the same time it must also be confessed that there is also an immense quantity of ru...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
MELBOURNE. May 5. Surveys are being made with a view of con- &lt;*> structing a line of railway from Melbourne to Sale (Gipps Land). May 7. The steamer Karkouia, after a Toyage of fifty-eight days, has arrived, bringing English news to March 8. The enquiry into the rerolt at Jamaica is still unfinished. Her Majesty continues to enjoy good health. Wool remains firm. The suspension of the Habeat Corpt Act as* tonished the Fenians, numbers of whom are fleeing from the country. The plundering of the city of Dablin was one of the principal movements intended. There is now complete evidence in the hands of the Government in reference to the organi sation and intention of the Fenians. The Karkoura will leave for Panama on Jane 1. May 8.

THE NEW GREEK ISLAND. (From the Athens Correspondent of The Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
THE NEW GREEK ISLAND. (From the Athens Correspondent of The Times.) A NEW island began to rise above the level of the sea in the Bay of Thêra (Santorin) on February 4, and in five days it attained the height of from 130 feet to 150 feet, with a feet, length of upwards of 350 feet and a breadth of 100 feet. It continues to increase, and consists of a rusty black metallic lava, rory heavy, and resembling half smelted scoria which lias boiled up from a furnace. It contains many small whitish semi-transparent particles disseminated through the mass like quartz or felspar. The shape of Santorin on the map gives an idea of its volcanic formation. It appears to be the eastern half of an immense crater, stretching in a semicircle round a baj in which the sea now covers the seat of volcanic action. The destruction of the south-western rim of the crater let in the water. The north-western por tion is the island of Therasia. The bay is about six geographical miles long, and upwards of four bro...
BOCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
BOCKHAMPTON. May 5. The meeting covened at the School of Arts, last evening, in reference to the extension of the Great Northern Railway beyond Westwood was ray largely attended, and a large amount of enthusiasm was exhibited. Hie weather was rery unfavorable, as a heavy rain was falling. Besolations were passed to the effect that the meeting viewed the statement made by Mr. Maealister of the decision of the GoYerament respecting the extension of the Northern Line of Railway as a violation of the promise that gentleman made when he was at Rockhampton- That the meeting records its protest against the decision of the Government, under the belief that such a violation will lead to a re newal of the distrust formerly entertained by the north in the GoTernment. That the meeting protests against the waste of public funds which would be caused by the termination of the railway at Westwood, as no practical benefit could accrue from such termi nation. They also protest against the Government...

BEST SIZE FOR ROOSTING-POLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
BEST SIZE FOR ROOSTING-POLES. Many persons contend that roosting-poles should be so small that fowls can clasp them with their claws. This is decidedly erroneous. The top of the poles should be circular, instead of flat, that the droppings may slip off readily, and not accumulate, as they would on a flat surface. A round pole, four or five inches in diameter, is the most suitable size for roosting poles. Fowls do not need a pole to cling to. They can maintain their balance far better on a huge pole than ot> a small one. In very cold weather fowls can keep their toes warm on large roosting-poles; whereas, if the poles be mall, their toes would freeze. Large, clumsy hens, haviDg toes more like corn-cobs than birds' claws, cannot cling to a •mail pole. For this reason, they frequently lose their balance during the nigbt and fall to the ground, when they are often devoured by nocturnal marauders in quest of poultry. Boosting-poles should be large also for young chickens. When the mot...
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 12, 1866. THE attention which has lately been paid to the position of affairs in this colony, and the discussions which have arisen with re- &lt;*> gard to its actual condition at the present moment, are sufficient to show that some alteration is required. Capital has been largely introduced, but production has not increased in proportion. The exports during the past year were smaller than in the previous one, while the imports have continued to increase largely ; and as these must be paid for in some form or other, the system of heavy imports cannot last for ever. The necessity of increasing the productive power of the colony is now re ceiving the attention of the Parliament, and is being anxiously discussed amongst the people. It may require some alteration in the law so as to permit of, and to encourage the necessary increase of exports, and no doubt this will be done; but there is another view of the question which invites the individua...
Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
Intercolonial Intelligence. NEW SOUTH WALES. OUR Sydney correspondent, under date May 1, writes: "The Land Question in Queensland" has not, you will perceive, passed unnoticed here. In fact it is the question of the day in all the Aus tralian colonies ; so that, although it may appear to some that people in New South Wales have no right to pass any opinions upon what Queensland may think proper to do in the case, the expression of such opinions is quite natural under the circumstances of general interest sur rounding the whole subject. A copious return has just been published here, showing the number and extent of pastoral runs, and the amount they yield to the revenue. The extent is a hundred and fifteen millions four hundred and fifty acres, or thereabout, and the total charges amount annually to £161,995 12s. sd. Now, considering that the expenditure of this colony amounts to about two millions and a-half annually, this amount v certainly less than ought to be obtained in the way...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
VICTORIA. WE have files from Melbourne to May 3. The Argus of that date states that a move-&lt;*> ment of a practicable and designedly profitable character has been made by the masonic body in Victoria for the establishment of a Free masons' Building and Investment Society. The design of the association is for the promotion throughout the colony of tho building of private dwellings, and also of masonic halls or lodges for the brethren, and the inrestment, moreover, of private and lodge funds at interest. The object which the promoters of the society hare in riew is to secure greater privacy, and per manent as well as more extensive accommoda tion for the various lodges; and also to reduce the excessive expenditure, by reason of which it is alleged the usefulness and efficiency of the lodges are greatly impeded. The association is provisionally registered under the Friendly Societies Statute of 1865. The trustees are the Hon. Oeo. Fred. Vernon, M.L.A.; J. T. Smith, M.L.A. ...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. GLENELG.—Glenelg, or as it is more fami-&lt;*> liarly called "The Bay," has grown to its pre-&lt;*> sent position by the force of circumstances. In all places where Britons congregate a watering- place soon becomes a necessity. They cannot exist long in comfort without a periodical visit to the seaside, where they may breathe the re freshing breath of the ocean and disport them selves like amphibious animals in and out of the water. London has its Bamsgato and Margate, to which its dusty and smoke-dried citizens repair annually to have the accumulated cobwebs blown away from them. It was hardly to be expected that South Australians would long inhabit the** lands without finding a watering-place, for summer resort. With a climate such as ours the fresh breezes which blow across tho ocean are peculiarly gratifying. During the hot months of summer, with the thermometer up to near a hundred, and sometimes over it, we are apt to get " baked," to uao...

Commercial Intelligence. QUEENSLANDER Office, Friday night. BUSINESS does not show any alteration since lost week, and though unmarked by any great activity an average trade is being transacted. There having been a falling off in the arrivals of Californian and Chilian flour at Sydney, flour is firmer, and holders of Adelaide are ask ing 10s more. Hay has also advanced, in con sequence of tho demand for country supplies. Maize is higher, as also is bran and pollard. Quotations may be put down thus :—Floor, Adelaide, £10, 10s to £20 per ton ; Californian, £18 10s to £19; Chilian, £16 to £17. Oats per bushel, 6s 3d to 6s 6d, scarce and in de mand ; barley, 4s 9d, with enquiry. Bran and pollard per ton, £9 to £9 10a, small stocks on hand ; maize per bushel, 5s Cd to 5s 9d, this advance is not likely to be of long duration; hay, lucerne per ton, £9 to £9 10s; oaten, £10 10?, both in demand ; potatoes, £6 10s to £7.
