MEETING ON THE LAND QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

MEETING ON THE LAND QUESTION. IN accordance with advertisement, a public meeting was held in the Town Hall on Monday evening, to consider the Land Bill, at present before the Assembly, and the propriety of forming a People's Land League. The room was crowded to excess. On the motion of Mr. Pettigbxw, The Mayor took the chair, and thanked the meeting for the honor they had done him. He j commenced the proceedings by reading the advertisement convening the meeting, and stated that he would not detain them by any remarks of his own. They were called together, however, to discuss one of the most vital questions it was possible for them to consider* The question was, perhaps, of more importance to the inhabitants of large towns of the colony than to other colonists. He concluded by ex pressing a hope that every speaker would receive a fair and impartial hearing. He would ■call uponMr.Balfonrto move the first resolution. That gentlemen being absent, Dr. Cummings, the intended seconder, wa...

Intercolonial Intelligence. VICTORIA. WE have received files from Melbourne to May 13. The Argus of the 12th states in reference to the approaching Exhibition that a deputation of the Exhibition Commission, consisting of Sir James Palmer, Sir Francis Murphy, Dr. Black, Mr. J. G. Knight, with Mr. Reid, the architect, waited yesterday upon the Chief Secretary and the Treasurer, for the purpose of b-i- ging under the notice of the Government t'-» desirability of making the two proposed ter ■ • jrary avenues to the permanent building oi' .1 permanent character also. The original proposition was to erect a permanent structure as an extension of the Public Library, at a cost of £15,970 ; but it was found that this plan would not give sufficient room, and it was therefore proposed to add two additional wings. Plans of these wings, to be of a temporary character, were prepared, but on further consideration it was thought that it would be more advantageous to make them permanent buildings. T...

IPSWICH JUNE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

IPSWICH JUNE RACES. A meeting took place at Tattersall's last evening, when the entrances for the ensuing meeting were declared. There was a very fair attendance considering that the Brisbane Races commence to-day. The chair wu occupied by Mr. George Faircloth, who apologised to the meeting for the absence of his fellow-stewards, several of whom were prarented from attending in consequence of being engaged in Parliamentary duties. He also stated that owners had not complied with the suggestion made, namely, to send in their entrances in the form drawn up for that purpose. It would save the stewards a great deal of trouble if they had done so. He had to call in a member of the club to assist him in opening the entrances, and he believed they had made them out correctly, though some of the writing was very difficult to decipher. The secretary then read a letter receired from Mr. Thos. I Tory, which stated that he had sold his chesnut hone O'Meara, with all engage ments, to Mr. Byan ; ...

LONDON WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

LONDON WOOL MARKET. WINDELER AND BOWES' WOOL CIRCULAR.— London, March 26, 1866.—The first series of Colonial Wool Sales this year closed this even-<*> ing. During the two months prior to its com- I mencement, on Ist instant, an unusual scarcity of fine wool had been felt throughout this country, and the repeated demand, from all ' quarters, was proof that the stocks in second j hands were quite exhaus'ed. An unprecedented number tof a buyer* assembled on the opening | day, during the last portion of the sales only, i when the more pressing wants had been satis fied, has the attendance assumed its more or dinary proportions. Much animation has ruled throughout, and although some classes hare occasionally turned in favor of buyers, as a rule, I the high price* prevailing this series hare been well supported.

The Poultry Yard. PROFITABLE POULTRY KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

The Poultry Yard. PROFITABLE POULTRY KEEPING. WHILE admitting a weakness for fancy and pretty fowls, I must state that they are very dangerous inmates of a poultry yard. Where profit is desired, merely fancy breeds are not admissable ; of course, where fowls ore kept for pleasure or ornament only, the ease is different; but their presence will always be found to be injurious to the superior breeds. Of these latter it is my present intention to speak. First in order for this climate comes the Brahmapootra, either for quality of eggs, gene ral health, or as table fowls. The breed is yet rather limited in the colony, they baring been introduced but a short time ; still they are to be had, and even at a rather heavy figure, they are cheaper to commence with than " scrubbers " at a sixth of the money. The Brahmapootra fowl has all the good qualities of the Dorking, though, perhaps, not of equal weight as a table bird. It is, however, much fiver in flesh, thus overcom ing the fault many b...

OUR DEBTS AND LOANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

OUR DEBTS AND LOANS. The following extract is from the S. M. Herald, of May 19. It refers to our loans and to our public works; it is therefore interesting. The financial affairs of Queensland seem to be drifting into a somewliat similar position to those of New South Wales. Fortunately for our neighbor* at the North they hare the ad rantage ot our experience, and they can take warning in time. But it is necessary that they should take warning and steer clear of the rocks on which our statesmanship has been wrecked. Queensland is borrowing largely and rapidly, bat it is beginning to find the same difficulty in forcing its debentures on the market that we do. Its six per cents, used to sell at a premium of four per cent., and the Government taking its own estimate of the value of the security, used to think that little enough. But now it is glad to dispose of them at two per cent, discount, which is a fall of six per cent, on the price first established. Even at 98, however, there is...

News by the Mail. LONDON LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) London, March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

News by the Mail. LONDON LETTER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) London, March 9. THE proposed annuities to Prince Alfred on attaining his majority, and to the Princess Helena in anticipation of her marriage, have been agreed to without a single dissentient voice. The Princess is to be married to Prince Christian, at Windsor, on the 9th of July. She is to have a dowry of £30,000 and an annuity of £6000. The Prince is to take the title of His Royal Highness. It was said that he would be made Duke of Kendal, but that is contradicted. The Princess would scarcely care to be called Duchess of Kendal —the only Duchess of that name known to English history was a King's mistress. Sir Charles Wood has taken the title of Viscount Halifax. The famous house of Halifax is extinct, but there are some collateral branches left who are said to be mightily aggrieved by the revival of the title in another family. One day last week the Times came out with a leader which sent the funds down a fourth and c...

THE WRECK OF THE LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE WRECK OF THE LONDON. THE commissioners appointed to enquire into the loss of the London have issued their official report to the Board of Trade. It contains a careful and lucid digest of the evidence, and the result arrived at is that the lews of the ship and her freight of living beings was directly duo to the unshipping of the engine-room sky-light, by which the sea broke in and extinguished the engine fire?. Had this not been so the engine pumps would soon have cleared the Bhip of the water. But bow the skylight came to be carried away was Tery indistinctly brought out in the evidence. In the absence of competent evidence on the subject, they give Captain Martin all the credit for seamanship, conduct, and courage which his previous conduct had earned for him. Several improvements in the construction of ships had been suggested by witnesses, which the commissioners report, and think deserving of consideration. The following translation of part of a letter from the Commissary-G...

THE LATE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE LATE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. The Royal Commission of Inquiry commenced their labors on January 25, and were expected to terminate their sittings on March 7. They have examined a great many witnesses, and among them his Excellency Governor Eyre, whose testimony was looked forward to by the whole country with great anxiety. So far, howeyer, the oral and documentary evidence he haa given before the commission ha 3 not ad vanced him one »tcp beyond the position in which he was placed by his despatches to the Secretary of State. The commission have declined to allow the barristers, Messrs. Gorrie and Payne, to cross-examine witnesses. These gentlemen appeared on behalf of Mrs. Gordon and others. The occurrences of tie first three days, that is, the outrages committed by the negroes, hare been fully established with the ex ception that manyof the stories about the mutila tion of the bodies of the murdered gentlemen hare not been supported—such, for instance, as the Baron Kettelhodt's brains...

THE LEVEE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

THE LEVEE. THERE was a very numerous attendance at the Governor's levee on Thursday, and there was, therefore, no want of that respect which is due to the representative of Her Majesty. Cards of entree had been issued to the official dignitaries of the colony; and afterwards the members of Parliament, the clergy, officers of the volunteer force, members of the bar, and the Mayor and Corporation were admitted. The citizens gene- rally were influentially represented. A complete list of the names will be found below :— CARDS OF PRIVATE ENTREE issued to: —The Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Lutwyche, Bishop Quinn, the Secretary for Lands and Works, the Colonial Secretary, the Colonial Treasurer, the Attorney-General, the Postmaster-General, the President of the Legislative Council, the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, the Venerable Archdeacon Glennie, the Moderator of the Pres- byterian Church, the Judge of the Metropolitan District Court, the Hon.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

NEW ZEALAND. THE Weekly Newt of the 5th instant men-<*> tions that a telegram has been received in Auckland from the Governor at Hamilton, in-<*> timating that William Thompson had had an mternew with him, and had consented to ac company him to Wellington. For tome time past Thompson has keep aloof from unofficial negotiators—at least, would in no way pledge himself to them; bat it is hardly to be expected that he could resitt the Governor when he went to Waikato. Thompson does not carry with him in his submission any great body of the natives. His want of will has made them lose confidence in his guidance, and the effect of Bewi's submission would be far greater than that of the famous King-maker. Still, Thomp son may be of immense assistance. By leasing his lands, and protecting the occupiers, he may materially weaken the power of the evilly dis posed natives, by introducing a European popu lation into the interior. It is certain that the Government wil...

In the case of James Fanning, plaintiff, and George Shurecht, defendant, Mr. PRING moved that an order made by his Honor the Chief Justice, be made a rule of court.

His Honor, by his order, directed that if the plaintiff should give security, to be approved by the Registrar, to indemnify the defendant, who might except to such security, the defendant should pay the note. Such in demnity was given, but after repeated applica tions the note has not been paid.

ANNUAL GERMAN FESTIVAL IN BRISBANE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 26 May 1866

ANNUAL GERMAN FESTIVAL IN BRISBANE. THE annual gathering or Schutzenfest of our German fellow-citizens took place on Monday at Toowong, near the residence of Mr. Reinhardt. The spot selected was most appropriate, having the advantage of being only two or three miles from Brisbane. It was situated in a very pretty valley, and was well out of the dust and other annoyances which too frequently attend similar gatherings. The programme of sports was cer tainly not a large one, and might to some extent have had the appearance of dulness to the few " foreigners" who were present. But those for whom the occasion was especially got up seemed to enter into the amusements with great heartiness and pleasure, and everything went off exceedingly well. The weather was just what one would wish on such a day; it was pleasantly warm, and the sun was not strong enough to burn anybody's face. There was a considerable number of persons present, mostly Germans. The principal event was the rifle shooting,...

THE CALEDONIAN GAMES. Again is it our pleasant duty to describe Her Majesty's Birthday as celebrated by the Caledonian Society of Queensland; and truly a wish   is expressed that the opportunity would more frequently occur, the games being a decided break in our every-day monotony. As usual, the committee of the society had been energetically at work for weeks previous to the great annual event, making preparations that nothing within their power should be missing when the time for action arrived. A visit to the Botanical Gardens at an early hour- in the morning showed that everything, to the minutest particular, was in readiness. The doorkeepers were at their posts, prepared with huge bundles of "checks," destined to do such good service during the day. The site roped in for the games was almost identical with, but consider ably larger, than that of former years, being the flat immediately adjoining the lily ponds, and at the foot of the hill on which stands the Curato...

THE BRISBANE MARKET.
