CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE CONDITION OF SPAIN. (From the Special Commissioner of the Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE CONDITION OF SPAIN. (From the Special Commissioner of the Daily Telegraph.) I WAS never a Pretendiente, although I should not at all object to a snug commis- sionership, with nothing to do, and twelve hundred a year to get; but I have always always had a great liking for looking at the outside of government offices. The porticoes of the Ministere dcs Finances under the arches of the Rue de Rivoli in Paris is, for in stance, a great study. How comes it that you meet so many ladies there ? What have the fair sex to do with finance ? What sleek, rogue faces—sharp schemers'faces glum, disappointed faces you see passing, in and out. How some rub their hands and chuckle softly—they hare got the Minister in a right place, and had their will of him; how others bite the lip, and set the teeth, and stuff the now useless bundle of papers into the coat-pocket. The Minister has said them nay, and they have received the moral kick downstairs—a process practised to admirati...

Miscellaneos Reading. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

Miscellaneos Reading. INDIAN MORALITY.—There is a story told of a European judge, who complained to a native subordinate of the perjury practised in his court. "Yes," replied the native, "it is very Dad. l nave never known it anywhere so bad. Here you can hire any number of witnesses to swear that bla?k is white for four annas ahead; but in my native district you cannot hire them for less than eight annas. A tzbt fine specimen of the eagle species, measuring exactly 6 feet 7i inches between the extremities of the wings, was shot on Monday evening, observes the M. A. Mail, by the teacher of the Green Valley school, while out shooting wattle birds; and, judging from its ap pearance, it must have terrified many a sturdy rooster.

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

News of the Week. Up to a late hour last night there were no indications (by telegraph) of the home mail, which is now overdue at Adelaide. The usual Friday's northern steamer having failed to put in an appearance, oar readers are also deprived of their budget of news from the Northern Port*, further than the telegrams supply. Tki Secretary of the Brisbane Hospital begs to acknowledge, with thanks, the receipt of £20 65., collected by Mr. Longlands, from the workmen employed on the GoTerament roads around Brisbane; £2 ss. from the emyloyea at the Courier office ] £1 from a friend, through Dr. Lansdown ; Ss. from the Matron Serrants' Home; a large quantity of linen for bandages, from Mrs. Barton and Mrs. 0.

SOMETHING ABOUT SWINDLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

SOMETHING ABOUT SWINDLERS. AMONGST the various discussions which have already taken place in the Legislative Assembly is one which has probably proved a "terror to evil doers," and met the approbation of those " that do well." In the short debate which occurred on the second reading of the bill for increasing the jurisdiction of Petty Debts Courts to 4-30, it was evident that no serious ob struction would be offered to the passage of the measure. Passed in 18C4, repealed in 18G5, and re-enacted in 18CG, it will present an anything but unreasonable argument for people who are fond of charging the Legislature with acts of tergiversation. For this, however, they will be principally indebted to that heaven-born senator —that com pendious edition in very Email compass c f legal and human wisdom (if we are to take him at his own valuation) —that unsur passed exemplar of egregious political apostacy —the late Attorney-General. Pre vious to separation, it was Mr. Pbing's boast that he had "...

Correspondence. TREATMENT OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

Correspondence. TREATMENT OF HORSES. FIAT JUSTITIA. May 9, 1866. SIR: Seeing the great interest weekly taken by your journal in the welfare of the horse, I have become bold enough to indite the follow- <*> ing queries. I trust some of your able corres pondents will enlighten those who are not so well up in horse flesh concerning them:— 1. Is iron a fit material fcr stable roofs in this climate ?- If so ; what is a good height ? 2. What is the best feed for bringing a poor horse into condition. 3. What is a fair diet for keeping a saddle hone (not much worked) in condition ? 4. Would it be dangerous or conduce to the health of a horse, to wash him all over oc casionally ? If the latter, might soap be used beneficially, or by what other means coul i he be kept bright anil clean ? My queries apply to town horses. I haro many other things to a*k, but reliable answers to the abore would be highly prized by one who admits himself REALLY GREEN. [As much ignorance undoubtedly ...

HOW IT FARES WITH OTHERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

HOW IT FARES WITH OTHERS. WERE it not stated that the following remarks applied to the state of affairs in New Zealand about the beginning of last month, with us, many readers might conceive they referred to Queensland about the same time. We quote from the Hswke's Bay MontJdg Mamal -— The subject of the weather i» one which, in these enlightened days, is considered a bore. But for all that, it is a matter of very serious consideration jnst now in these parte. Baia there is none, and not the slightest appearance of Any. A few flying showers, very light and very short, now and again just wet the dust, but no appearance of any plentiful down fall cheers the anxious gate of the grazier and farmer. It may be said without much faar of contradiction that the drought has hung over this country (or fifteen months, no fall of rain of any account having occurred during that period. We are rapidly approaching the condition of Peru, where no rain falls at all, where in fact the people don't kno...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXXIX. DR. HERIOT'S PATIENTS. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. FILLED with the interest reused by this new episode, the crew, for a time, forgot everything, in their desire to know what ship this had been, where the hailed from, to relieve the sufferers, and to learn all they had undergone ; for, even in hit wont moods, Jack is always ready for anything, and the more of novelty it contain*, the better for him. The four drooping figures could be distinctly disowned now, with their heads bare, their faces blanched and pale. Ethel and Bose were full of commiseration; already their gentle eyes were swimming in sympathetic tears. Theformtr kept by the side of her father, and the latter, in her excitement, leant more heavily than usual, perhaps, on the arm of Dr. Heriot; and even old Nance Folgate had come out of her berth, and, muttering " Lor a mossy me!" from time to time, clung with cat-like tenacity to the net tings on the lee-quarter, to see the castaways...

The Poultry Yard. PROFITABLE POULTRY KEEPING. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

The Poultry Yard. PROFITABLE POULTRY KEEPING. I. AN old lady, to whom I am indebted for much of my success in poultry breeding, told me it was no use attempting to make the busi- ness remunerative so long as primary attention was not paid to the male bird; or, as our American friends have it, the " rooster." Vp to that eventful day, I thought, like many others, that if I had a stock of good fat hens, caring little to what breed they belonged, my progress as a poultry-breeder was secure, and plenty of eggs, with occasionally a chicken would be the lot of oar household. Perhaps it would not be a bad plan to gire toe reader a list of our stock on hand at the date when our old friend (she will excuse me for saying so) first directed attention to the er roneous basis on which we were working. We had aav half-a-dozen hens with a tinge of Span iah in them ; 3 dorkings; 3 pure Spanish, mostly old, and the parents of the other stock, and about a dozen of the mongrel breed to well known. We h...

NEW ZEALAND. NOTES ON PASSING EVENTS. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, April 17. The Governor returned last week from the East Coast and the Lake districts, and has now gone round in the Eclipse to Kawhis, on the West Coast. As I mentioned before, he went inland from Tauranga to the Lake country, partly also to see the Arawa natives, who lift) inland as far as Eotorua. The accounts of his journey are not very full or clear, but, from all I can ltarn, the matter was not very satisfactory. The Arawa natives expected a large increase of territory in recom pense of their services, and were very much dis gusted that they were told their old boundaries must be confirmed. Sir George asked for a piece of land to make a township, and it is • proof of their discontent that they refused hit request. Then he tried to persuade them to go and capture Kereopa, who is known to be under the protection of an adjoining tribe, bat they at once asked how much he would give them to...

GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the Toowoomba Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the Toowoomba Chronicle.) TIMES here, as elsewhere, are very dull. The want of rain has brought on a lethargy, an utter hopelessness on all sides, among all classes. The squatters' purse is draining fast; there is purse draining a hole in it, not the legal one at the mouth, but that half hidden at the bottom, through which the profits of former years dribble away. No pasturage, no work, no money, and conse quently no profit. Frequent cases of «r»j™»1 ff bogging occur, too weak to drag their skeletons out of the rim of mud which the retiring waters leave on every bank. Nothing like a fat horse or a milch cow has been seen here for a long time. Mailmen often come into the town walk ing, having left their horse or hones knocked up. Members of the police force take duteous excursions on foot. Persons who were seldom seen off a horse are now forced into developing their own bipedal organisation. If anything like a fat horse appears in town his owne...

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 8.) ON Saturday afternoon the Kate, steamer, arrived from Brisbane with a number of immi-<*> grants, per Flying Cloud. They are now located in the depôt, and comprise 79 single depot, comprise single men and 16 families, the latter equal to 42} statute adults, all of whom are open for en gagement. Two of our enterprising townsmen, Messrs. Reilly and M'Donald, have lately erected water works on their premises at North Ipswich, for the purpose of supplying the inhabitants of that locality at a small charge. On a stand, about nine feet high, and 300 feet from the river, are erected two tanks, capable of containing 400 gallons each ; these are supplied from the river by means of a force pump, which is capable of lift- ing 9000 gallons 48 feet high per day. The pump also supplies the engine, and is worked by steam. The water-carts are filled from these tanks by a three-inch iron pipe, and the time for filling an ordinary sized cask i...

The Veterinarian. INFLAMMATION. FOURTH ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

The Veterinarian. INFLAMMATION. FOURTH ARTICLE. SEDATIVES, such as aconite, calomel and opium, antimony, colchicum, and digitalis, are used to reduce the fever and constitutional dis-<*> turbance. To be effectual, they ought to be given more frequently than is generally done, a* every hour, or at any rate every second hour. When five or six doses of any sedative have been given without producing any good, another should at once be substituted for it. Ftboatives, beside* evacuating the bowel* and thus removing crudities which are apt to cause and increase irritation, are also invaluable a* depurative remedies, removing from the blood the product* of inflammation or noxious matter* accumulating from the arrestment of secretions. They must be used eautiottsly; for it is not a single violent movement that is re quired, bat a regular and gently relaxed state which should be kept up by clysters a well-re gulated diet, and an occasional half dose o( medicine.

HORSE "PLANTING," OR STEALING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

HORSE "PLANTING," OR STEALING. FROM accounts received, we were under the impression that the rascally game of "horic planting" was on the wane in this colony. Such may be the fact in the country districts, thanks to the wholesome rigor with which those con   victed have been lately treated by their honors the Judges. In and near town, however, the evil seems as bad at ever, if not on the increase. There are parties hovering about Brisbane who are actually known to the polioe as horse steal ers or " planters," their modus operandi being to drive any horse they can get away to some quiet place, and there " shepherd " him until a sufficent reward is offered for his recovery, or a chance of selling him occurs. Not only are roving horses driven away, but paddocks and stables are invaded during the darkness of night ; and to quietly we these operations carried on that conviction seems almost impossible, most persons being more willing to pay a pound or two for the recovery of...

It was in the pleasant month of March, in the year 1866, that the Government of sdasd asasdsad bad a meal before, and sever expected to get another; and whilst thus engaged, bit master began to consider what lie should call him. The first appellation which suggested itself was Buuny, on account of the shortness of his tail; but the name of Boneypart was at length decided on, for equally obvious reasons. On Good Friday morning Mr. and Mrs. Wiggins set off in a light American car riage, very easy to draw, but very trouble some to turn round, inasmuch as it took about an acre of land on which to perform the operation comfortably, whilst if he turned short it was likely to upset, la this crocodile conveyance they arrived at a house in Morphett Vale, where they stopped to dine; and here their experience *s travellers began.
