EXCURSION TO THE BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
EXCURSION TO THE BAY. The Q.S.N. Co.'s s. Emu made an excursion to the Bay, but owing to the rival at-&lt;*> tractions of the races at Eagle Farm, and the Caledonian gathering at the Botanic Gardens, rery few of our holiday-makers availed them selves of the opportunity. The Bay too just now does not present much attraction, as there are only one ship, one barque, and two or three coasting schooners at the anchorage. The Emu in going down the river landed passengers wishing to go to the races, at the Hamilton Hotel jetty, and again called in returning to pick them up and bring them to town. The day was rery pleasant throughout.
THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY. THE celebration of the Queen's Birthday is an event which is peculiarly gratifying to all loyal subjects in the British dominions. It brings with it pleasing recollections of the good and peaceful reign of oar most gracious Sove reign ; and it affords an opportunity for relaxa tion and enjoyment which those who are bur dened with the every-day cares of life are always ready to avail themselves of. Hitherto the observance of this auspicious day has not been neglected in this colony. It is looked forward to with anticipation of pleasure, which is generally realised; for, when an Englishman, Irishman, or Scotchman's heart is set upon enjoyment, the difficulties in the way of it must be of more than an ordinary kind to preventhis attaining it. Itisfortunateforholiday making in Queensland, that that damper upon all oat-door amusements —a wet day—need not be apprehended. We can look with perfect complacency upon Mr. Saxby's weather predic tions ; for although we have...
CONCERT AT THE UNION HOTEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
CONCERT AT THE UNION HOTEL. A Caledonian Concert and Ball were given at the Union Hotel in the evening. A most attrac-&lt;*> tive programme was provided, consisting of songs, duets, and comic recitation, and the con- cert room was consequently well filled. The Scotch songs of " When the kye comes hame," " Auld Scotland I love thee," " Allister M'Allis ter," were sung with great spirit, and were loudly applauded by many of the hearers, who from their nationality could enter fully into the feelings associated with them. The comic songs, " The Dustman's "Wife," "Bacon and Greens," and several of a like kind, were rendered in a manner that provoked peals of laughter. The recitations also Vere very good, and the time quickly passed until the ball commenced. The dancing was kept up with great spirit far into the hours of the night. Ax accident, that might have been attended with fatal consequences, occurred on Wednesday morning, in Queen-street. Dr. O'Doherty was driving Mr. Ha...

NOTES FROM TALGAI. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
NOTES FROM TALGAI. No. III. Ex nihilo nihil fit. I have nothing to report. We have had rain, but not enough; showers I productive of good, but insufficient to afford permanent benefit. Mining affairs in statu quo. permanent Mining quo. i I take the opportunity, having little or I nothing to report, to give you an idea of the : quartz formation here. Some of your reader* ; may be interested in it. ! The formation Uau upheaval of trap rock, in- I tersected by quartz dykes and (but rarely) I granite. The trap rock it of the ttlcoae or slate variety, except where fused by volcanic action into a hard blue rock, known amongst miners as bluestone. The taloose rock proper is a kind of quartzose granite, containing more or less talc, and often, as before remarked, fused ' into a state of perfect compactness. It is generally intersected by veins of white or blueisk colored quartz. Here we have it exhibiting various shades of color. Much of it contains chlorite (an olive green mineral) instead...
NORTHERN DOWNS. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
NORTHERN DOWNS. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THE mailman cut my last epistle short by passing two hours earlier than usual, but I hope you were able to make out what I wished to say about this rumoured Cumberland disease among among sheep. I see in a Brisbano paper a report of a rumour about it in the Maranoa district, but I have not heard it here, or, indeed, of its being authentio if any where but Dunmore; and, as 1 said in my lost, I don't think anybody knows whether it is red water or Cumberland disease, or contagious or not. People do not run about telling their mishaps, and it is difficult to know what state sheep arc in on some stations, as they do not spread themselves all over a country side as other stock does; but beyond a doubt some must be suffering already from dry grass, and very little of it, and many from want of water. I am sorry to add that the lowering clouds and partial showers appear to have passed away, and the weather is quite warm again; but no signs of any sprin...
GOONDIWINDI. (From a Correspondent of the Toowoomba Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
GOONDIWINDI. (From a Correspondent of the Toowoomba Chronicle.) RAIN has at last fallen, commencing on the 16th, and continuing in heavy showers for two days and nights. The change in the weather since is something sudden, from mild and pleasant to cold and rather unpleasant. lam sorry to hear that this change of tempenture has fallen with fatal effect upon number* of the poverty-stricken animals in and about town, and I fear the worst is yet to come. The ensuing winter, for we may consider it fairly commenced, will carry off all the old stock, and further impoverish the young. There is every appearance of moro rain, and indeed we want plenty of it, and a few warm days to cherish the dying giass into existence. By grass 1 mean roots, for there is nothing to be teen above ground, and the expression "bare as your hand" is truly applicable. As anticipated, portions of land opposite the township, over the river r have been taken up under the Free Selection Act of New South Wales. The se...
ROMA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
ROMA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. As previously arranged, the match between the Romans and the Maranoites came off last Thursday, and ended in the defeat of the country eleven, much to the surprise of all con- surprise pf cerned. The captain of the Romans baring won the ton, they were the first to take the wicket*, represented by Mown. Koran and Cottell, the latter playing a fine game for twenty one, when he was caught at point by Deeds— not one of the other players succeeding in making a double figure. The bowling of Deeds and Lewis was magnificent, the former being dead on the wicket, and did not give a single wide. The wicket-keeping of Hope would hare shone in any intercolonial match, being nearly equal to that of George Marshall, of Victoria. The fielding of some of the men was rery loose, as cau be seen by the great number of byes standing to the credit of the Romans, who managed to score 59. The Romans now took the field, the western men sending in Mr. A. Robinson and the...
DALBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
DALBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. I AM happy to say I arrived here on Thurs-&lt;*> day thoroughly drenched, and that thirty-six hours' heavy, soaking rain has kept me from proceeding on my journey. I am somewhat astonished to find our rery humble apology for a local newspaper, in its last issue, telling iU readers the Cumberland " malady" had spread considerably, and how the sheep on three or four adjoining runs are suffering from its pre sence among them, for I hare but just arrived from the vicinity of Dunmore, and at once say either " the gentleman" of our young friend, or the writer, have been wrongly in formed. So please give heed to my story. For some days after promulgation of the first news of alleged Cumberland disease at Dunmore, not an old ewe could die but that its owner pro- | nounced it Cumberland disease; but now I find a very different spirit prevailing—sheep farmers are waxing jocular, and one (not bad) joke is current, at the expense of Kidney Fat, ...
WARWICK. (From the Argus, May 23.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
WARWICK. (From the Argus, May 23.) REMOVAL OF MR. WHITE TO DALBY.—We understand the magistrates who protested against the removal of our police magistrate to Dalby, have received a to the effect that reply the Government regret they cannot alter their decUion, so Mr. White leaves Warwick for Dalby tliu morning, in order to make the neces sary arrangements for the reception of hia family. The petition from the people of tho Warwick district seems to have had no effect on the reconsideration of the matter, as pro mised by the Colonial Secretary to Mr. Herbert's application, although that petition was the strongest ever forwarded from Warwick, having been signed by 550 people. Mr. D. M. Sinclair, our new P.M. is still performing his duties here. The Mail Chavges.—We expected that when the recent changes in the conveyance of the mails by coach took place, the full advan tages would hare been enjoyed. It appears, however, that a little more change has been over looked, which we beg to po...
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Time, May 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Time, May 19.) THE weather has again changed, and seems to have set in fair with cold westerly winds. Yesterday brought the first really cold morning we hare had this year, and if the present year, present weather lasts, fires will soon be in requisition. A sale of Government lands took place at the Police Office yesterday. There was an unusually small attendance, and only one lot out of 42 j offered found a purchaser, at the upset price of £1 per acre. That was lot 40, situated in the I parish of Bandanba, near Redbank Plains, con taining 81 acres 2 roods. The purchaser was Thomas Bice. (From the Mercury.) On Thursday night, Thomas Grisley—who was in a state of intoxieat on, and who had been turned out of the Waterview Hotel, Bremer-street—narrowly escaped drowning. It seems, that, after leaving the public-house, he went down the bank to the Queen's wharf; and, being in an almost helpless state through drink, walked into the water. Constable Cahill, wh...
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) SEVERAL days of fine bracing weather suc-&lt;*> ceeded the late rains, giving a kind of prepara-&lt;*> tory intimation of approaching winter, but yes-&lt;*> terday morning again brought a few gentle gentle shower* and a milder tone in the atmosphere, which appearances promise to continue for a few days. There lias been a larger growth of feed than might hare been expected at this late , season of the year, and the paddocks which i have been kept free from stock, or which have j not been overdone, are looking fresh and green, i with a fair extent of good healthy feed; but , on the unenclosed lands in the vicinity of town, ; the excessive number of animals constantly : grazing has kept the grass very short, and the ' cattle still continue very poor. : If the favorable weather which has been lately j prevalent, and which has given us such a for tunate seed season, should continue with any permanency, or even at m...
