REPORT OH HARBORS AND RIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 12 May 1866

REPORT ON HARBORS AND RIVERS. The following report from the Engineer for Harbors and Rivers has been printed by order of the Legislative Assembly:- LARGE SECTION MISSING THE BREAKWATER AT THE JUNCTION OF THE BREMER AND BRISBANE RIVERS.—This wall is composed of large squared blocks of sandstone, hammer-dressed and laid dry ; length from middle bank, 250 feet ; height, 10 feet ; bottom width, 33 feet, diminishing to 3 feet at the top. This work is nearly completed, and will cost £2457. The gradual accumulation of shingle in the Brisbane River, behind the breakwater, is satis- factory evidence of its utility ; it would be of   greater service were it extended completely across the river to the northern bank. The further advance of shingle beds would be checked by this means, and when the shingle increased so as to overtop the wall, it could readily be removed in barges for railway ballast, or for repairs of streets (laid on top of the ordinary sandstone metal used in Brisbane, it would...

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, MAY 8. TUESDAY, MAY 8. After some formal business, Mr. MILES presented a petition from the in- habitants of Roma in favor of the continuance of District Courts. In reply to questions put to Ministers it was stated (1)—that the estimated receipts of the   railway line from Rockhampton to Westwood were arrived at on a report made by the Chief Engineer of that line, and that the cost of the terminal station at Ipswich amounted altogether to £16,827; (2)—that the contract for the   dredging operations at the Brisbane bar ex- pired in August, 1867, that the amount ex- pended up to the end of 1864 was £25,314, that £13,322 had been spent under the contract, and that £8675 had yet to be paid, but this would probably include the cutting near the police hulk. Mr. PUGH moved for certain returns showing the original cost and expense of maintaining the   steamers Platypus and Kate, and also the repairs   done to ...

ROCKHAMPTON. May 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

ROCKHAMPTON. May 14. There was a large fire early on Saturday morn-<*> ing, at the back of the premises of Mr. Nobbs, of the Criterion Hotel. The main building was saved, but all the out-houses were destroyed; together with Walker and Lee's premises and stock. Mr. Nobbs' loss is estimated at £1000, and he is not insured. Walker and Lee's loss is the same, but they are insured in the Mutual Provident Company for £250. The cause of the fire is unknown. May 16. The steamer Tlnonee has arrived from the North. Among other items of intelligence brought by her is the report of the death of the Rev. Ben jamin Dixon, the well-known Wesleyan minis ter, who died at Bowen on the sth instant. His death was caused partly from a severe cold caught on the passage up, and also from an attack of gastric fever. A public meeting was held at Bowen on May 2, for the purpose of memorialising the Govern ment respecting the inattention paid by them to the wants of the district. The speakers ge...

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

News of the Week. WE have just received information that 1500 wethers, from Mr. Caswell's Station, in the Burnett District, have been boiled at Baffle Creek, and averaged over 22 lbs. The following items are extracted from a letter received by us from a private correspondent at Bowen :—•• The Freo Church, owing to the de parture of tho Rev. W. Griffith, hm become closed. The only clergymen now here are :— Her. William M'Ginty, Roman Catholic ; Rev. Mr. Searle, Church of England. A movement has taken place to get the Kennedy District separated from Brisbane misrule. The Rev. Dr. Lang is to be invited to pay us a visit in order, no doubt, to obtain the weight of his ex perience in a matter so important. The barque City of Melbourne will sail hence this evening for the Albert River Settlement; she takes a cargo of timber." Man 7 of our readers will have learned with regret the loss sustained by the Weslcjan Church in this colony by the sudden death of one of its most able and devoted m...

ROADS AND RAILIIOADS. (Prom Yesterday's Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

ROADS AND RAILIIOADS. (Prom Yesterday's Courier.) SOME few days ago, we published the report of the Engineer of Roads, Southern Division, upon the public works of his department for the 1865. So far as year regards the main roads in this portion of the colony, the rejwrt is most satisfactory ; and, although the expenditure in 1805 is stated by Mr. Austin to have been lew than that of the previous year, it is very evident that during that period a great manj improvements have been effected in the principal lines of communication. This diminished expenditure is accounted for by the stoppage of the works along the roads from Ipswich to Dalby, and from Toowooraba to Warwick, in consequence of the rapid progress of the railways in course of construction. The report states, also, that from the same cause a considerable reduction in the expenditure during the current year may be anticipated; and that " the numerous public works of a (" decidedly permanent character executed *' and provided...

THRILLING ADVENTURE. (From the Buffalo Express, January 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

THRILLING ADVENTURE. (From the Buffalo Express, January 16.) WE have to recount this morning one of the most fearful and extraordinary stories of perilous adventure, death, and suffering that it has ever been our lot to make pub- lic. Of the three actors and sufferers in it, one is a prominent and widely known gen tleman of this citj, Mr. William A. Thompson, the proprietor, and now.vice president of the new Erie and Niagara Railroad, running from Fort Erie to Nia gara. We have obtained the particulars of our story from the lips of Mr. Thompson, who survives to relate such an experience as few men in the world have passed through. It seems that on Saturday afternoon the quantity of ice passing down the river from the lake caused the ferry boat plying between Black Rock and Fort Erie to suspend her trips. Mr. Thompson, who was on the other side and desired to cross to this, accepted the offer of a colored boy, William Bartlett, to row him across in^ a small boat, not realising at the...

IRRITABLE PEOPLE. (From the London Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

IRRITABLE PEOPLE. (From the London Review.) (From the London Review.) COMMEND us to the man who believes that he is surrounded by a host of enemies. If he were a more rare specimen of humanity than he is, he would be worthy worthy of a cage in the Zoological Gardens. His very look is enough to tempt you to en courage his fancies, in order to enjoy the ludicrousness of the position. Note his eyes—their restless eagerrfess of attention assures you that every word you utter, by way of serio-playful insinuation that them is a hostile influence at work somewhere, is taken up by him and transformed into an active personal foe. Whilst you are with him, and listening to his grievances, and slyly enjoying the joke by experimentalizing upon his absurd cre dulity, he will regard you as a true friend — the truer and stancher the more ene mies you can assist him in conjuring up; but to-morrow you may be pretty sure that you too will be numbered amongst his enemies—not because he has discovered t...

DIAMONDS AND OTHER GEMS. (From Harper's New Monthly Magazines.) WHEN our neighbor Peter O'Leum bade his Sally buy the finest set of jewels to be had for money in New York—for had he not just sold the Jackass Pit, flowing 400 just Pit, flowing barrels daily, for 150,000 dollars cash, to a company which was going to issue 2,000,000 dollars of stock, and to declare monthly dividends of 2 per cent. ?—he strengthened his account at his bankers,' and prepared for a good strong pull. For, saiil he, I don't know nothia' myself about di'nionds or them trash, but now I'm rich I my Sally shall wear as handsome jewels as the best of them Fifth Avenue folks. So Sally bought the most expensive diamonds she could find, and her bill ran as fol lows :— Mr. Peter OLeum, Dr. to Tiffany and Co. ALL BILLS PAYABLE IX GOLD. Dollars.
