IMPROVEMENTS IN WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
IMPROVEMENTS IN WOOL. ON the subject of improvements in wool, the Courier publishes the following letter from "An Overlander:" SIR, —By the last accounts from England I note that superior Victorian clips realised from 3s. to 4s. per lb. Some time ago I did myself the honor of writing to one of your most in fluential squatters calling his attention to the superiority of Victorian wools, and suggesting that Queensland wools could be brought to the same perfection if rams and stud ewes could be imported safely from the adjacent colonies. The Government have permitted the importa tion of sheep under certain restrictions. These restrictions are well known to all concerned, and my object is to endeavor to point out that they are unnecessarily striugent, also damaging and impeding to the improvement of wool in Queensland, both in quantity and quality. It may be safely stated that there is not a flock in all this favored clime that can compete with the flocks of Mr. Kermode of Mona Yale, Ta...
THE ALLEGED CUMBERLAND (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) Northern Downs, May 12. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
THE ALLEGED CUMBERLAND (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) Northern Downs, May 12. I PERCEIVE you have heard reports of the sad visitation it is feared our sheep here will be sub-&lt;*> jected to. I have a very great objection to the circulation of reports unless well authenticated, reports authenticated, and where properties are so distant from each other as obtains in the squatting districts it is almost impossible to correct hearsay. There cannot be a doubt, however, of the fact of some of our sheep being stricken heavily with a new disease, by some called red water, by others Cumberland disease. No one seems to know whether it is contagious or not, and panic renders all descriptions more or less unreliable. There cannot be a doubt, however, of their suffering heavily rather at Dunmore, but I can not glean anything positive as to rumours of other stations; for instance, Qreenbank was said to have bad it, but I believe such not to be the case; the report arose in this wise. The man...

News by the Mail. Up to a late hour last night there were no indications of a steamer at Brisbane with the Queensland portion of the home mail, which arrived at Adelaide on the llth. The following telegraphic summary of the news is all yet received at our ! office:— j The R.M.S. steamer Ellora left Galle on the i2nd April, and reached King George's Sound on the evening of May 8.

PORT DENISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
PORT DENISON. WE are in receipt of files from Bowen to the 9th instant. We take the following extracts from the Port Denison Times. That paper on the 9th says:— It is now more than a fortnight since the Williams left this port for Bockhampton, and under any circumstances she should hare been back long ere this. On the present occasion, having the long overdue English mails on board she should not be behind time. Knowing, how ever, the perfect disregard of the wishes and in terests of the people of Bowen invariably mani fested bj the A.S.N. Company, however much annoyed we may be, we can scarcely say that we are disappointed. It is difficult to under stand the tactics of this company. If the trade does not pay them why not give it up at once and make room for others ? If it does pay them why do they not carry on their business in a workmanlike manuer ? Still less cau we under stand the utter indifference displayed by the Brisbane Government. One would .naturally imagine that they wer...
GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 15. May 15. THE commanders of most of the large ships and steam vessels frequenting this port have sent a well-merited remonstrance to the "powers that be" on the miserable pilot arrangements of thU harbor, &c, &o. Although no comments of mine could do much in a nautical point of view, I may hero note that if any mishap should occur to the extensive pilot establishment of Port Curtis—viz.: one pilot, at £120 a year ; one boatman, to assist pilot in manning cockle shell, .-€92 per annum—with the present trade to the port of large cla»3 vessels, the said cockle siwll cannot be in time, so that the ships at times arc at anchor before they see the pilot. It certainly makes a service look very ludicrous when 11.M.5. Salamander camo in. Cockleshell,pilot, and as sistant, pulled oft" just as she had anchored,butit appears Commander Nitres was not aware of the pilot being aboard until ho was about leaving. As our concentrated wisd...
ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
ROCKHAMPTON. WE have files to hand to May 15. The Bulletin of that date says that "upon inquiry made yesterday, we learn a rough estimate of the damage sustained in consequence of the late fire in Little Quay-street. Mr. Thomas Nobbs, of the Criterion Hotel, calculates his loss to be about £1000, including about £650 for the billiard-room, kitchen, stables, laundry, and sleeping apartments on the first floor of the large building (the lower front portion of which was occupied by Messrs. Walker and Leigh) all of which were connected with the hotel, and were destroyed. The damage to the stock and furniture is named at about £350. Messrs. Walker and Leigh state that at the time of the firo they had about £1000 worth of stock, con sisting of 3eeds, prodnce, and oilmen's stores. Of seeds alone they had about £500 worth, haying laid in a good stock for the approaching season. The only property saved they estimate at about £70 or £80, and nearly the whole of that was rendered unsaleable by...
PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866
PRUSSIA. There has been a most disgraceful popu-&lt;*> lar outbreak against the Hebrew residents. An offer has been made by the Govern-&lt;*> ment to Austria of fifty million thalers if she will cede her right to the Duchies. The English Government have forwarded despatches throwing the whole responsi bility of the threatened war upon Prussia. The Emperor of the French has not yet announced the line of policy he intends to pursue. The Prussian papers profess great satis faction at the termination of the alliance with Austria.
