LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, MAY 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. TUESDAY, MAY 15. In reply to questions put by hon. members, it was stated, (1.) That the survey of the proposed railway between Brisbane and Ipswich had been com- pleted, and had cost £80 per mile, that the esti mated cost of constructing the line was £291,400; (2)— that the Colonial Handbook was completed, and ready for publication; and (3)—that a quanty of colonial tobacco had been seized at Toowoomba, which had been smuggled over the border. All the business on the paper, which took precedence of the resumption of the Committee on Ways and Means, was postponed in order that the adjourned debate on the Treasurer's statement might be at once proceeded with. Mr. Raff analysed the statement mode by the Colonial Treasurer, and quoted figures to prove tliat the financial condition of the country was far worse than hon. members liad been asked to believe, and that the deficit at the end of 1865, instead of being £47,000, as stated by the Treasurer, was much nearer ...

NATIVE GRASSES. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

NATIVE GRASSES. No. I. As an apology for my intruding the following remarks upon you, I would state that they were drawn forth by a published remark, that none of the native grasses of this country were of sufficient importance to warrant their systematic cultivation. Who, unless he be prepared to ignore the splendid beef and mutton with which the tables of the colonists of Queensland are so abundantly supplied, could take that statement in without reservation ? Of the value of some in the very rich list of foreign grass seeds offered to enterprising colonists we have no reason to doubt. Their value has been proved by the cultivators of Europe and America, and to their experience we bow. At the came time, it will startle some of the experimental ones who have so steadily gone in for prairie grass, Italian rye grass, and a host of other European favorites, if one of the most valuable fodder grasses of late years in troduced to the notice of British and Continen tal graziers should pr...

CLERMONT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, May 5.) A memorial is in course of signature at Peak Downs, addressed to the Postmaster-General, setting forth the great inconvenience felt in the South Kennedy district through the want of mail communication, and asking for the establish ment of a fortnightly mail between Avon Downs and Bully Creek from the Ist July next, a dis tance of eighty miles. "Die memorialists re spectfully pray that the mail, instead of starting from Logan Downs, as at pre.ent, should start from Clermont, and thence running by the Wolfaug Springs diggings, M'Maatcr's Fether dtonhaugh's, Avon Downs, Elgin Downs, Balgourie, and Bell's stations, make Bully Creek Post-office within a total distance of 160 miles. This mail would also serve Thome's, and Hull, and Montcith's stations. The present mail between Logan Downs and Avon Downs runs seventy miles, and only serves two stations, while that proposed would serve eight stations and the Wolfang Spring Diggings. This mail...

WARWICK. (From the Warwick Argus, May 9.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

WARWICK. (From the Warwick Argus, May 9.) AGRICULTURAL RESERVES.—The following letter has been forwarded to the Argus on this subject:—"In your issue of the 21st ultimo appears a list of agricultural reserves, scattered over a large portion of tho Downs. These are, no doubt, yery good in their way, but my object in writing you is to draw Mr. Hill's, tho Govern ment selector, attention to the fact that per haps with one exception—Kill am ey—not one of these reserves will grow oats or potatoes in a moderately dry season. At the same time, I would call bis attention to that portion of country on our southern boundary, embracing the head of Quartpot Creek, where, although the toil is poor, yet, from the higher elevation and more frequent rainfall, these crops have never been known to fail. The country is thinly timbered, and has an abundance of never* failing springs and running creeks. Were aa agricultural reserve thrown open here, the town and neighborhood of Warwick, with all its boa...

FRENCH IDEA OF ENGLISHMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

FRENCH IDEA OF ENGLISHMEN A FEW days since, at a pleasant station on the French Northern Railway, I entered a carriage, in which were a French gentle-<*> man and an Englishman, whom I found engaged in a very animated discussion, if that can be so called, in which the argu ment was all on one side. The Englishman, who seemed to be in a very desponding mood, was an intellectual looking person, with an expression so free from unbecoming diffidence that I was rather surprised to observe that he scarcely found an occasional feeble reply to the overflowing eloquence which was being addressed to him. I could not avoid seeing (on a dressing cate he carried) his name, which was Sampson. The debate appeared to be on the subject of comparative national pre-eminence, which for me was rather a propoa, as I was prepar ing in my corner to finish reading a very interesting - article in the last Cornhill Magazine, one entitled " My Countrymen," very interesting, but very depressing, be...

IRELAND. Dublin, March 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

IRELAND. Dublin, March 8. You can hardly have an idea of the soothing effect produced in this country by an article written in the spirit of your last on the land question. This in the real root of popular dis- coutent. The tenants, as a rule, make the im provements, in many cases increasing the value of the land tenfold. The rent, in the-course of ▼ears, is multiplied in the same proportion. This increase, made pursuant to periodical valu ations by the landlord, in which the tenant Ims no voice, the tenant class, and I may say tho whole mass of the population, regard as an enormous tax on improvement, which too often amounts to a prohibition, preventing invest ment and encouraging the exhaustion of the land. Still, if the farmer is to live on hi* holding bad land must be reclaimed, cleared, drained, fenced, and houses of some sort must bo built, and the work of improvement proceeds in reliance upon verbal agreements, or upon the landlord's sense of .justice —that, at least, the ten...

FENIANISM IN THE ARMY. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

FENIANISM IN THE ARMY. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) Notwithstanding the great merit in some respects of Lord Hartington's statement on the Army Estimates, it is undeniably an unsatisfac-<*> tory subject for reflection. It neither recorded progress in the present nor gave hope for the future. There is a large, but probably not too large an expenditure upon our soldiers them selves, their arms, and all that is required for their efficiency; but it is the process of expend ing which Uso pre-eminently expensive. It is not what is *}>ent on the army which is co startling ; it is what is spent on it s way to the army. A spirited firm offered to contract for feeding and clothing our army in the Crimea. If we could contract for its civil and financial administration and the keeping its accounts, the saving would probably be remarkable. Never theless, though the inefficient outlay in the War Department is a carbuncle in the body politic of Britain, her general health is vig...

QUEENSLAND EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 19 May 1866

QUEENSLAND EXHIBITION. THE local exhibition of articles to be for-<*> warded from this colony to the Melbourne and Paris Exhibitions was opened on Tuesday, in the Victoria Theatre. This building is very well suited to the purpose, being of a commodious size, and admitting sufficient light. Yesterday it Lad rather a bare appearance, owing to the fact that a great proportion of the articles in tended for exhibition had not arrived. The re maining articles are. however, expected shortly ; and we shall, from time to time during the exhibition, give an account of all fresh arrivals Notwithstanding the somewhat bare appearance presented inside the building, there is much of considerable interest evcu now to be seen; and the large number of visitors in the room must have witnessed quite enough to induce them to go again when the other exhibits arrive. Mess-rs. Lyons and Hill, on whom the heavy work seem to have fallen, have earned the best thanks of the community for the effe...
