FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

FRANCE. After several days' discussion on amendments proposed by the Opposition, the Corps Légis-<*> latif have adopted the address in reply to the speech from the throne by 251 against 17 votes. His Majesty on being presented with the address said :—" The great majority of the Corps Le gislatif have confirmed once more, by voting this address, the policy which has given you fifteen years of tranquility and prosperity. I thank you. Without allowing yourselves to be carried away by vain theories presented in a seductive garb, as alone capable of aiding the emancipation of thought and the progress of humanity, you said to yourselves, ' We also desire to attain those ends, while regulating our march by the ap peasement of passions and the wants of society.' Is not our motive the common welfare, and what attraction would your mission have for you, or my power for me, if separated from the love of justice? Would you go through such long and arduous labors if you were not in...

AUSTRIA AND PRUSSIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

AUSTRIA AND PRUSSIA. Alarming war rumors continue to circulate in Vienna. At Pruchna, on the Austro-Prussian frontier, space has been marked out for a mili-<*> tary encampment. Four thousand laborers are to be employed in repairing and arming the fortifications of Cracow, for which work the ■am of one million florins will be applied. The commanders of the different regiments have received orders to concentrate their troops near the lines of railway, and reinforcements are being sent to Yenetia. Plans have been drawn up for the construction of a Urge railway net work to embrace the whele of the interior of the Austrian empire. The expenses are to be defrayed by the issue of railway bonds to the amount of 300 million florins, bearing interest at 8 per cent., and redeemable within 32 years. Although it is stated that the Prussian cabinet has not yet sent its long-expected despatch to Vienna in regard to the Duchies, many verbal communications on the subject continue to pa...

ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

ITALY. A debate upon the return of Mazzini as deputy for Messina was concluded on March 22 in the Chamber of Deputies. The election was an-<*> nulled by 191 against 107, four members abstaining from voting. A solemn dirge was celebrated at Milan the same day in memory of the Italian patriots who fell during the five days' fighting in Milan against the Austrians in ISIS. The prospect of a war between the two great German Powers has caused Italian politicians to re-discuss the consequences of an alliance of Italy with Prussia. The Marquis Pepoli, a near relative of the Prince of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen, in a recent sitting of the Florence Parliament, told the Italian ministers they had better send a squadron to the Baltic, to co operate there with the fleets of Prussia against her enemies.

Correspondence. STRAY HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

Correspondence. STRAY HORSES. SIR: Being unlearned in the laws of the colony, I should feel obliged, to any of your correspondents for information on the following subject: some eighteen months since I found a stray hone, with halter. The following day I advertised him, stating that the owner might hare him by describing him and paying for the edvertisement. Since that time, I hare had him paddocked, no one having claimed him. I wish to know if I am at liberty to ride him, or what am I to do with him P A BUSHMAN. [We beliere the law states that in all such j cases a horse should be handed over to the nearest poundkeeper. To ride or in any way work him, would certainly leave you open to a charge of illegally using.] GIOIOGY AKD TIKI OBOWHT« Sib : Seeing how many of your reader* are interested in the cultivation of the vine, perhape the following extract from the Mining Journal may be considered worthy a place in your columns. Its special value is that the reference applies to this cl...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XLV. THE EXPULSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAP TER XLV. THE EXPULSION. BY CAPTAIN JANES GRANT. HAWKSHAW'S hand, as we have stated, fell unconsciously on the loaded revolver which lay by his side, but was instantly withdrawn. He had not the courage to die by his own hand, in the fashion to which tho old Romans were so partial in all their griefs and difficulties. He looked up with a half-haggard and half bullying or defiant expression, as Captain Phillips, Mr. Quail, the doctor, and Mr. Basset entered the cabiu. The latter gare him a long, steady, and withering glance, and after knocking at the door of Ethel's little cabin or state-room, entered it hastily. Then tho varying exclamations of astonishment and joy which were heard within it Bounded as additional knells of disgrace— they might be those of death to Cramply Hawk shaw j and now, after surveying him long and sternly, Captain Phillips addressed him with great deliberation. Hiiwkshaw found himself regarded with horror and aversion, but no a...

FOUR MILLION SERMONS A-YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

FOUR MILLION SERMONS A-YEAR. STATISTICAL statements have sometimes a wonderful power over our imaginations. They give distinct form to truths which are slumbering indistinctly in our con- sciousness. We are startled when we are told that the Ganges bears down hourly a mass of deposit equal to so many Egyptian Pyramids, or that a penny put out to com pound interest in the time of Adam would now be worth many hundred globes of solid gold, each equal in size to the earth. But there are cases where the mere enunciation of bare figures is more sur prising than these ornate and sophisticated statements. We should shudder at the bare assertion, if we believed it to be well founded, that twenty thousand barrels of measly pork were weekly consumed in London, or that ten men of otherwise sound understanding believed in Dr. Cumming's interpretations of the prophecies. We have been startled in the same way by the calculation that four million sermons are delivered annually in England. It reveal...

The Sketcher. OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINS. PART V. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

The Sketcher. OUR TRIP TO THE DIGGINS. PART V. BY S.G.M. WITH gladdened hearts we now resumed our journey, looking back many times with silent benedictions on the spring. We walked until sundown, and now came to a place called the Stockade —where terrible scenes had formerly been enacted. We did not know _of this, though, at the time; but were attracted .by- the crumbling stone-work —like a small Stonehenge—around the place ; and we respired to stop there for the night. - -Ere we had lighted a fire against one of the old walls, the night had closed on us. We were Just sitting at tea, when lo ! a traveller appeared in sight. He was on, horseback, but at once dismounted, hobbled his horse, and greeting us "with a cordial smile, and r3ugh though genial ".Good evening," informed us that he -would stop with ii 3 till morning. "We bade him welcome, and seeing that he whb putting down, his quart to the fire (which N he had- filled at the adjacent creek, after taking 'a drink), we handed hi...

Gossip for the Ladies. LATEST FASHIONS FROM HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

Gossip for the Ladies. LATEST FASHIONS FROM HOME. THE most fashionable style of collar is called "col Richelieu." It is turned down, very nar- row at the back, and with, deep points in front. A pretty pattern for the morning is made of double-stitched linen, edged round, either with Valenciennes lace or Cluny guipure. Upon each point there is a star or rosette worked in thick button-hole and satin stitch, with a centre of open lace stitches. Butterflies, birds, and bees are also fashionable patterns to work in this way. Dress collars are made of the same shape: they are made of lace —either Valenciennes or guipure—with medallions in embroidery and lace stitches worked in applique over them. Lace collars are also made quite straight round the neck, with a ribbon passed under the lace,   and tied in a bow in front. Cuffs to match, either round or pointed, are always very deep. They are now fastened on upon the under sleeve like revers, so that they can be turned down over...

THE LAND QUESTION. THE large, unanimous, and well-con-<*> ducted meeting of the citizens, held on Monday evening, to consider the Land Bill before the Assembly, and the propriety of forming a People's Land League, is worthy of more than a passing notice. We would rather, however, that the opinions of the vast number of respectable and intelligent working men of Brisbane who were in. attendance had been more sought after than appears to have been the case. Wo tind that only two of this class gave utterance to their sentiments on the impomnt question of the day, for the discussion of which they had been called together. The other speakers, though they propounded the most liberal opinions with that tact and experience which they could have been expected to exhibit, would have done well to have con tented themselves with staying more in the shade, and allowing the representatives of the working men who were present to have stated the views entertained by that class of the ...

[?] SUCH IS LIFE. LIKE to the damask rose you see, Or like the blossom on the tree, Or like the dainty flower of May, Or like the morning of the day, Or like the sun, or like the shade, Or like the gourd which Jonus bad: Even so is man whoso thread is spun, Drawn out, and cut, aud so is done!

LONDON LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) LONDON, March 1866. AMONG our gay neighbors, Lent has long commenced in earnest, but, save that danc-<*> ing is prohibited, I think during the season of penance Paris is gayer than usual. There is plenty of music, with - receptions and dinners ; and Madame de Metternich's parties are, as usual, pre-eminent. On Shrove Tuesday, General Fleury enter tained at dinner the Emperor, Princess Mathilde, and the Prince and Princess Hohenzollern. A distinguished party was asked to meet the illustrious visitors, and —^open your 'eyes at the information— "Theresa" sang! She had- sufficient good taste to dress very simply in white muslin, a coral necklace being her sole ornament; likewise she confined herself to the least outrageous of her songs. She was twice complimented, by the Emperor, and at the end of her performance, General Fleury informed this famous personage that she had made the Emperor laugh more in one hour than he (the Gene...
