A MONTH WITH THE REBELS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 April 1862
A MONTH' WITH THE fEBELS, Blacksooed's Iagcaine for December has a paper entitled as above, which will be read with interest as the testimony of a recent visitor to the Southern theatre of war. The writer's sympathies are evidently with the Southern chivalry, but there is no.violence in his style. He begins by admitting that Kentucky is not altogether ocesi'onist. Her Legislature is still trong for the Union. Whole hountries are the same. Distinguished men, opposed to the Government, still adhere to the stars iand stripes. The mature' and honoured judgment of the venerable Crittenden .is yet against "the rebels.' The following extracts may not be unac oeptable to our readers:- 'pBraciEs Oe F SOUgOn SEisartTre.-Our party at the littlblin broke up on the arrival of a train, nddwe found:stanuding'ioom in a car crowded with with soldiers. "Few were dressed in uniform, but all were armed. One beside us, not a bad sample of the rest, had a breech-loading carbine slung over his shoulder,.t...
POLITICAL CHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 April 1862
POLITICAL CHANGES. Tea election of a member for the Eastern Downs, in tihe place of the Honorable the AT TORNEY-GENERAL, resigned, gives abundance of room for speculation amongst a certain class of politicians, who are always anxious for change. The good peopleof Warwick and the neighbourhood will have no cause to complain of want of opportunity to exercise their political franchise. They have lately distinguished them selves by rejecting a Minister of the Crown, and the election of a gentleman who will doubt less become the leader of her Mbagast's Oppo sition in the Queensland Parliament; PATRICK O'SULt.LVAN, Esq., M.L.A., who distinguished himself in that capacity last session, resigning its honours in favour of the chosen of Warwick. We believe, notwithstanding that several names have been mentioned as likely to contest the representation of the Eastern Downs, that the choice will lie between Mr. M'LEas and Mr. KENNEDY. It will therefore be for the constitu enoy to show whether t...
THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 29 April 1862
;B E OPENING O PARLIAMENT. Siw T noon to-day our legislators will again ; sembe to hear the Vice-Regal speech, and proceed to conduct the business of the third session of the Queensland Parliament. Several *changes have taken place since last session, Swhich' will probably produce some material alteration in the style of conducting the public business. The translation of the Attorney General to the Upper House will do away with the complaint of the Legislative Council, " that they had no representative of the Government in their house," and we have no doubt that Mr. PIaNG, with all'his faults, will be the means of assisting the hpnourable members of the Upper House to. arrive at more business like conclusions than they have sometimes done.beretofore. Besides this, by the presence of a member of the Executive, the honourable members of the Upper House will be saved the trouble of fighting the many shadows which stood in their way last session. One of tne most important measures of th...

Most of the articles of general Mnsumptiou would be moderately taxed, while higher rates would be charged on distilled ,liquors and other articles of luxury, on legacies and pro bates, on passeugers by railroads and other con. veyances, on newspapers, and on telegraphic messages. It was expected that from these sources, and from the ordinary sources, a revenue of-at least 150,000,000 dols.snnually would be secured. r A letter from the Federal Camp at Bnbb's Ferry, Maryland, gives a dismal account of the- state of the roads :-" Mud adhesive, mud tenacious,mnd enee.deep, mud intolerable,- mud indescribable, irevails everywhere.
