Commercial Intelligence. QUEENSLANDER OFFICE, Friday. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

Commercial Intelligence. QUEENSLANDER OFFICE, Friday. The markets have bean rather quiet during the week, and there is but little calling for notice. There is a fair trade demand for flour, and notwithstanding that there are only small stocks on hand, best Adelaide brands have de clined £8. Bee quotations in Prices Current. Bran k quiet, and former rates still prevail. Hay, both lucerne and oaten, are well supplied. The inquiry is purely for immediate wants, and last weeks' prices are still current. Good sound old maise is scarce and in demand, but prices are lower in consequence of the incoming conTofloeal growth. This is now coming to market pretty freely, and has been offered at 6s. Potatoes are very scarce. The crop of Queensland growth is just exhausted, and importations of new potatoes from the southern colonies have not commenced. The quantities to hand by the steamers from Sydney, are so small that quota tions are only nominal. Ps»Dtrc« Bbpobt.—Mr. Theodore Unmack reports: H...

We have sold 60 head of unbroken hones in the mob at £5 per head; also, SO head of unbroken colts and fillies, fit for draught, at from £12 to £16 per head; also, 60 head of light unbroken stock, at from £9 16s to £4 ncr head ; haeknies have realised from £12 * £w« draught horses, subject to trial, from £24 to £90 per head. Fat Cattle: Prime and fat cattle readily command high rates, and, as the winter approaches, will advance greatly upon present prices, in consequent* of the scarcity of grass and water, aid the great difficulty expe rienced in mustering them, the stock horses being so ill-conditioned. Bullock Teams: We have several enquiries for bullock teams. Mr. W. H. Groom reports business fair during the week. Flour is steady at £38, at which figure I...

Spirit of the Press. THE COLONY OF VICTORIA. (From the Brisbane Courier, Feb. 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

Spirit of the Press. THE COLONY OF VICTORIA. (From the Brisbane Courier, Feb. 3.) OWING to the policy pursued by the present Ministry of the colony of Victoria, it is probable that a change will be made shortly as regards the heads of Govern- ment in the colonies of New South Wales and Queensland. Through representations which have been made to the Secretary of State, sufficient has been stated to warrant j the correctness of a rumor, at first circu lated by an anti-ministerial journal, that His Excellency Sir Charles Dabldcg is to be relieved from the position of Governor ' of that colony which has especially j prided itself upon possessing the blessings of responsible government. So many and important have been the political changes in Victoria since it was separated from New ! South Wales—so great has been the tam pering with its land regulations and its tariff, that by many persons the question lias been raised, whether its prosperity has been enhanced by the patchwork legislati...

EARTH CLOSETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

EARTH CLOSETS. The Age. THERE are few questions of greater importance than the adoption of measures calculated to arrest the spread of contagious diseases; and the prevalent alarm, owing to the spread of cholera on the European -continent, and the probability of its visiting us in its desolating march, will, no doubt, lend force to any recommendations of the Central Board of Health, directing public attention to the means by which such evils may be lessened, if not wholly prevented. In this direction, the recommendation of the Central Board of Health in favor of the use of the earth closet, in preference to the open cesspool at present in use, is likely to receive some attention. It it a matter of surprise that so simple an expedient for remedying on evil inseparable from crowded cities and towns has not become more general. The remedy proposed has simplicity and unexpensiveness, in addition to its cleanliness, to recommend it to the public, and will, no doubt, in time be brought in...

NATIVES OF THE FAR NORTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

NATIVES OF THE FAR NORTH. WE are glad, for the credit of the colony, that the Government have shown a disposition to relieve the sufferings of the blacks in the far North. We believe the feeling of the colony generally would go with the Executive in their largest efforts to promote the comfort of the aborigines, whom we have disiwssessed of their lands, and to a large extent deprived of their usual means of living. Had they had no claims upon us but those of common humanity—the claims which a suffering people liave upon those who are prosperous —it would have been our duty to assist them as far as possible. No humane people would ever allow a wretched race to perish at their doors, however low and degraded that race may be. Hut the duty which is suggested by the ordiuary feelings of humanity is made more binding and im pressive by the consideration that our coming here has in many respects been an injury to the 2>oor creatures. From the time when this colony was founded, the cond...

MARRIAGE IN TRANSYLVANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

MARRIAGE IN TRANSYLVANIA. FROM TRANSYLVANIA; IT PRODUCTS AND ITS PEOPLE. BY CHARLES BONER. OF the system pursued by the Saxon peasantry in the marriage of their children, I was enabled to judge during a stay in one of their more considerable villages. One evening, on going into the room where the family were assembled, I found the daughter, a girl of fourteen years and a half, crying bitterly. On inquiry, the father related that she that day had had an offer of marriage, and refused to accept it. He was in a great fury, and told the girl that, if hi two days she did not change her mind, he would give her a sound thrashing. "He had never," he said, " given her a box on the ear even, but she should now have plenty if she proved obstinate." The man's conduct roused my indignation, and I immediately began, as a meddling Englishman would be sure to do, to take him to task for tyrrany and his threats. The wooer, he replied, was the very best match in the village —a young fellow, active an...

PLANTING CORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

PLANTING CORN. T. As the planting season for maize is not yet past, perhaps the following experiments by an old hand may prove interesting to those so engaged. To my mind it shows the unprofitableness of planting during dry weather, and that it is better to wait for rain than do so. My idea in trying the experiment was to find out at what depth and under what conditions the seed of maize best vegetated; for my purpose I got the following results:— Seed covered 2 inches came up in 8 days. » i> 3 „ „ 9 „ » „ 4 „ „12 „ ,» » 6 „ „ m i* 8 „ „ 14 „ „ „ 12 „ „ 20 „ The seed was planted during wet weather and in the month of January. The second lot turned out every way good, and the fourth scarcely came np at all. The soil is a light loam; not scrub, and not very rich. It grows corn and potatoes well in good seasons. During last month I tried the same ex periment, but no plants are yet visible, whatever the present wet may do. I ex pect the seed is lost. In planting it is best to wait fo...

The farm & the Garden. OUR GREAT WANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

The farm & the Garden. OUR GREAT WANT. Those who have resided for a few years in this colony, or in any of the Australian colonies, will have .no difficulty in recog nising to what the heading of this article refers—the want of a permanent supply of water. Just at present, after a heavy fall of rain, which has visited most parts of the country, leaving creeks and waterholes full, although, from its short duration, it did the cultivator little further good, having in few cases penetrated the ground more than an inch or two, the full benefit of artificial means of water supply can be fully appreciated: to show how these can be enlarged and extended is our present object. Home customs and ideas stick so dose to us Britishers, that even when transferred to the antipodes we carry them with us, and unless driven from them by dire neces sity, would live and work after the training of our youth; embracing every opportunity to growl at whatever did not turn out as we had been used to...

THE CATTLE DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

THE CATTLE DISEASE. Daily Telegraph, November 27. THE last Cattle Plague returns tell a terrible tale; and it is not reassuring to find from the new Order in Council that, whilst the disease is on the increase, the measures destined for its extinction are nude less, rather than more, complete and decisive. On the 28th of October we were told that since the outbreak of the murrain, 17,673 animals, or about three thousand five hundred a month, had been attacked. In three weeks the total has shot up to 27,432. Nor does the present return in clude all the cases which hare occurred, but only those "ascertained from the official information received at the office from inspectors;" and still we find that in three weeks the rate at which animals have been prostrated has increased from 7000 to nearly 11,000 per month. In other re spects, the latest return is not more satis factory. On the 18th instant there were no fewer than 3977 sick animals remaining in life; whereas on the 21st of Octobe...

MECHANICAL ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

MECHANICAL ART. Daily Telegraph. ON Saturday evening, November 18, Mr. Ruskin delivered a lecture at the Working Men's College, Great Ormond-street, on Art. There was a very large attendance. It should be stated that formerly Mr. Raskin was connected with the Art classes at the college. The lecturer, who was received with great enthusiasm, commenced his address by stating that ill-health and a pressure of work had prevented him from being with them as often as he could have wished; but he had the satisfaction of knowing that they had very good masters in Messrs. Lowes Dickinson, Jeffrey, and Cave-Thomas. When he was with them he also felt that he was not exactly the person they wanted. He could best illustrate what he meant by telling them a thing which struck him very much at the time he attended the classes. One of the best men in his class gave him great satisfaction by the execution of his work, which made him think this pupil had a great perception of beauty. He exhibited much ...

ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 31. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 31. M'PHERSON'S name is still here a household word. Since the sticking up of the Maranoa mail, he has not committed any fresh depredation. Mr. Commissioner Seymour. Captain Lambert, and two or three section* of the native polioe, are still in Roma or its immediate vicinity. The down mail last week was closely watched in its course down towards Condamine, in the hope, doubtless, that the Scotsman would attack it, and thus walk quietly into atrap. No attempt was made, the wily Scot being as well informed of the strategic movements of his enemies as they themselves. It was generally supposed that the object of " sticking-up" the Maranoa mail was that he might draw off the police in pursuit, and thus leave liim a good opportunity of making a dash into Boma to execute his favorite idea of sticking-up the Bank of Queensland. If such was the intention, the hot pursuit by the police the following day effectually put a stopper on the intent. The s...

DALBY. (From the Herald, February 1.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

DALBY. (From the Herald, February 1.) THE formation of the telegraph line to Roma was commenced on Tuesday last, and the work is now actively proceeding. Mr. Murfield has not lost much time in commencing the work, 'commencing the wor*^, and we may shortly expect to be in telegraphic communication with the Maranoa district at no rery distant day. As a proof of the state of the labor market, we may say that nearly double the number of men required applied to Mr. Mvi field for work, and he could not possibly engage them. Many came up all the way from Bris bane, and some of them were taken on. On the other hand, men will not take work on the railway if they can obtain any other. The eon* sequence is that the railway is not proceeding with that rapidity we were led to betiere it would a few weeks since. Tht embankment has been commenced in Dr. Wuth's paddock, and the barrows are being put together, bat fiv more hands will be required before any rerj percep tible progress is made. There i...

GOONDIWINDI. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) January 31. I TAKE for granted that the majority of your readers are by this time quite aware of Goondi-<*> windi, a place with a name not more extraordi-<*> nary in sound than the place which it represents place represents is in reality.

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 30. THIS supposed little town with a great name has again proved true to same, by a third suc-<*> cessful "budget" being issued by our municipal authorities for 1865, with a balance to their credit, and it may be worthy of note, that the mayor of Gladstone and the Bight Hon.

Now, I heir that our corporation intend, after the next ma* nicipal election, to launch out a bit by immedi ately building a Town Hall, Ac., Ac., and if the Gorernment does not help them with a loan at small interest, as per other municipalities right and left, they intend getting money locally to unprore their town, and trust by the leasing o a number of first-class allotments next year* not only to collect the arrears of rates, but get a higher assessment through being at ooos brought into use.

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, January 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, January 20.) ANOTHER week of dull, cool weather, with occasional squalls and very light showers, has passed. The last month has been pleasantly cool throughout. A correspondent, writing from Expedition Creek under date 19th instant, says:—"This place still keeps up its character for insuffi ciency of water. The puddler*' dam is per fectly dry. The European population is very small, and their earnings subject to the same rule as to size. The Chinese are as numerous as ever, and 1 believe they are doing a little. At Gregory's Creek mining is almost at a stand still for want of the aqueous agency. If no rain falls in a day or two the camp will be again deserted." From parties who returned yester day from tho various ruslios, we learn that water is also much wauted at the Seven-mile—in fact in every part of the diggings rain it anxiously expected. The partialness of the rain that has fallen is remarkable, many of the Belyando stations having had ...
