The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1866. AGRICULTURE, like every other pursuit, requires a careful economy in order to ensure success. This fact cannot be too strongly impressed on the minds of all those who are engaged in farming operations. High expectations require an almost fabu lous amount of good fortune, in order to prevent disappointment; and there is al ways a danger in this direction in new employments, for it requires a considerable prospective advantage to induce people to go into them. A very alluring prospect was held up to view for a long time be fore anyone was induced to try the cultiva tion of cotton. And when it was first tried, the idea of obtaining the large returns which were promised so freely led to an expenditure of money which well nigh ruined our pros pects. Now that there are a greater num ber of people engaged in cotton growing, and each one is endeavoring to keep the expenses down to a minimum, an amount of experience will be gained that will quickly e...

ANDREW JOHNSON TO THE SCAFFOLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
ANDREW JOHNSON TO THE SCAFFOLD. AT last the strategic evolutions, the flank movements, the marchings and coun-&lt;*> termarchings of the radical enemies of the President have culminated in a direct, open, and desperate assault. There ig no longer any doubt as to the bitter hostility of the faction headed by Mr. Stevens, not only against the policy, hut against the indi viduality of Air. Johnston. It is well. When the rattle of the serpent is beard, and its crest is seen reared for the deadly spring, the danger at least is visible, the stroke can be parried* the venomed head crushed under the heel. We do not know whether Mr. Stevens has been thrown off his guard by the violence of his fanaticism, or whether he really considers hi* faction strong enough to contend, in a political death struggle with the Executive. It matters little whether his action has been prompted by temper or by policy. It is sufficient to know that he has flung his glove into the President's face, and...

The steamer Gneering, which, oar readers will remember, was stranded at Mooloolah on April 16, baa been successfully re-launched, ■without having sustained the slightest damage or straining. The means employed were very simple. Ono end of the vessel was raised by means of screw-jacks, and three sets of ways ■were laid under her, at a suitable incline. The other end was treated in the same manner, and then her bow was pushed, by means of the screws, into the most favorable position for launching. Owing to the continuance of south east winds a considerable time elapsed after the vessel was ready before the weather would per mit of anything being done. On Tuesday last, however, a farorable opportunity presented it ■elf, and the vessel was forced off into deep water without the slightest difficulty. She after wards took in a cargo of timber, and left Mooloolah for Bris...
