FENIANISM IN IRELAND. (From the Freeman's Journal ). Great excitement was occasioned on 18th February, when it became known that the de-<*> tectives and other police were making arrests of persons suspected of being concerned in the being Fenian conspiracy. Detachments of police were to he seen going in every direction, and persons wire much at a loss to discover what was the cause which led to such a general movement on the part of those charged with preserving the public pe&ce. But the cause was soon explained in the batches of prisoners being led to the seve ral station-houses. Those first taken info cus tody were strangers to Dublin, who had been here for sonic time past, without any apparent employment, but who were never in want of money, and stopped at respectable hotels and lodging-houses in excellent style. The% persons have been for a considerable time under the close observation of the police, and it was alleged that they had come here from America, ...

THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

THE FENIAN MOVEMENT. The correspondent of the Daily Telegraph, writing from Dublin on the 6th March, says:— "I have already mentioned that the activity of the police in their search after Stephens has been manifested by their perquisitions at sea as well as on land. They are acting on informa tion which they believe to come from a trust worthy source, and since Friday night their attention has been particularly directed to the vessels in the River Liffey, which they have ; subjected to a careful examination —it is uune- j cessary to add, without a satisfactory result. The police are assisted by her Majesty's gunboat Nightingale, which on Saturday took | up position at the mouth of the River Liffey, off the Pigeon House, while the revenue cutter Racer cruised about to overliaul outgoing ves sels. It is reported that a trawler, paying no attention to the signal to bear up, was chased, and a shot fired across her bows before the i skipper came to a sense of his position. She was duly b...

THE COMING MEET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

THE COMING MEET. THE QUEENSLAND TURF CLUB annual races commence on the Eagle Farm course on Thurs-<*> day next; so a little gossip about them and the horses that are expected to run may not be out of place. It must be gratifying to the lovers of this genuine sport to see how success ful the stewards of the metropolitan club have been in getting up good races here, and remov ing the siigma on the name of Brisbane for not furnishing amusement for its inhabitants, and compelling them to go to Ipswich to pro cure it. However, it is possible to say too much even on this subject, and I merely men tion it as a eort of introduction to what is to follow. That we are likely to have excellent sport this year can scarcely be doubted. The prizes to bo offered at the Brisbane and Ips wich races, which are to take place within a fortnight of each other, have been happily suf ficient to attract some of tho sporting men of the south here with their horses. Where large prizes are^ given...

SHORT RULES FOR TRAINING TWO YEAR OLDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

SHORT RULES FOR TRAINING TWO YEAR OLDS. IN the year 1863 Captain W.J. Minor, of Natchez, Mississippi, United States, an ex-<*> perienced turfman, published in pamphlet form, his short rules for training two year-olds. The rules are very valuable, especially to amateurs, and we reproduce them, together with the correspondence that passed between Mr. Minor and Mr. Hughes: J. J, Hughes Esq : My Dear Sir:—l here with hand you a few " Short Bules for Training Two Year Olds." Knowing you hare an outside, and Davy au inside knowledge of the subject. I have not been cither very diffuse or concise in my little treatise. The fact is, as it regards work, no exact directions can be given. The trainer must be governed by circumstances, which are only developed as the working of the horses pio ceeds. I suppose one case: You have two colts, same age, and apparently the same in all respects; you put them to work on, say, eight quarts of feed in twenty-four hours. They both go quietly,...

The Sketcher. COBB & CO.'S COACH FACTORY. WE take the following description of Messrs. Cobb and Co.'s coach factory, at Bathurst, from the Bathurst Times of May 2. It is in itself a proof of the immense establishment required bj the above-mentioned firm to enable them to carry on their extensive business as coach pro prieton aud mail contractors, both in this colony and that of New South Wales :— " There are not many persons, probably, in Bathurst, and perhaps very few residents in the country, aware of tho extensive workshop carried on by Messrs. Cobb and Co., iv llowick street. We certainly had no idea ouraolves of the existence of such a large factory until by accident we happened to saunter into the es tablishment a few days back. Being struck with the number of vehicles of all sizes and descriptions, in various stages towards comple tion, we were led to make a few inquiries, and as a subject which may not be uninteresting to our readers, we proceed to lay the informatio...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 19, 1866. THE financial question has occupied the attention of the Legislative Assembly to the exclusion of all others during the past week. It appears that there is an urgent necessity for the immediate passing of a Loan Bill, in order to provide the funds for carrying on the public works and the Immigration to which the colony is pledged. Contracts have been entered into for the construction of railways to Dalby and to Warwick, and also from Roekhamp ton to Westwood, and only about one-half of the requisite funds have been voted. The Immigration Act authorises the annual issue of debentures, but the sums allowed for the years 1860 and 18G7, have not yet been included in any Loan Bill. Almost the whole amount of the previous loans has been expended; though the debentures have not all been sold, advances have been made upon them by the Bank in accordance with their agreement. As the works have been deter mined opoa and are in progress, immediate actio...

ENGLISH AND AMERICAN HORSEMEN. (From "An International Affair," in Harper's New Monthly Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

ENGLISH AND AMERICAN HORSEMEN. (From "An International Affair," in Harper's New Monthly Magazine.) MR. FITZ PATRICK rode the same sturdy little galloway upon which he had met me the evening of my arrival. A beautiful black Arabian of fourteen hands bore saddle. The Daisy's Captain's horse was a large chesnut gelding, containing undoubted Eclipse blood, full of fire, without a superfluous ounce of fat on him; but with that convex neck and perpendicular action of the fore legs which could not fail to set at ease any American horseman who proposed to match him with a first-class animal capable of keeping down to his work. Beautiful as Inker mann was in all his outlines he was only a parade hone after all, for he had never learned to economise his time and strength by sticking dose to the ground. The Captain's face bright ened as he looked at my Cholooke. He said nothing; but I could see that he had as little fear of my animal as lof his. Even Miss Fitz Patrick could not entirely concea...

Miscellaneous Reading. A BALL AT NEW YORK.—A New York re-<*> porter, describing a recent ball there, says:— "Fashion sat upon a throne of gold. For eight happy hours the scene was filled with wavy gauze and glistening satins, studded with bril liants, and warm with an atmosphere of smiles. It was easy to mistake for the perfume of breaths the odours of the flowers which nestled everywhere, in snowy bosoms, on diamond powdered coiffures or in soft hands. It was delightful to follow the spirals of the enchanted waltz, entwining happily the form of the Golden Touthtide of New York. It was a bath of dazzling delight, enough to intoxicate the young; and where others might endeavor, alas! to renew the impressions which are dead " —then he went to supper The Welsh Patagonia* Colony — Re ported Disasters.—The barque Dorothy, which has arrived from Bueno3 Ayrcs, brings a dreadful account of the new Welsh Colony in Patagonia.

THE OSBOURNE HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

THE OSBOURNE HOUSE. The ship Osbourne House, from London, sailed from Gravesend on December 14, 1865, and had a fair pleasant passage of six days down the channel. Immediately after clearing the land the vessel fell in with heavy gales from the westward,- chiefly from the south-west, and accompanied by a confused cross-sea. This weather continued from the 20th December until January 4th, and during that time the vessel shipped so much water and labored so heavily that Captain Lowe deemed it necessary for the safety of the ship to throw overboard a portion of the cargo to lighten her. However, the Bhip passed through these gales with a com paratively slight amount of damage, and it must be remembered that in these gales the ill-fated steamer London perished. After the bad wea ther ceased, the vessel met with light winds and calms, and in consequence did not make much progress. Bhe crossed the Line on January 30, and on March 14 she was off the Cape of Good Hope, and on the day follow...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XLII. A BITER BITTEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XLII. A BITER BITTEN. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. AFTER leaving the doctor, Hawkshaw, to gather "Dutch courage," took a last mouthful from his brandy flask, and with his slippers on, stole softly and stealthily between decks, so softly that his entrance was unheard by oar four friends, whom he found awake, and conver ling in low tones ; so he seated himself on a chest, with his face completely in shadow, and there he remained listening, and scarcely daring to breathe, for with every roll of the ship, the Jbur hammocks swung regularly to and fro, side by side, from port to starboard, and the outer one, in which Morley lay, nearly touched the Watcher's head at times. The air-port was closed now, and the place was lighted by the feeble rays of a ship-lantern, which swung from one of the beams. In shadow, as we hare said, and with a broad tarpaulin hat slouched over his stealthy cat-like •eyes that flashed with malignant light, Hawk shaw sat, or crouched...
