LATER NEWS FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

LATER NEWS FROM AMERICA. WE are indebted to the Argus for the following from the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, December 6th:— PRESIDENT JOHNSON'S MESSAGE. Chicago, December 5. The President's message opens as follows :— "To express gratitude to God, in the name of the people, for the preservation of the United Btates, is my first duty in addressing you. Our thoughts next revert to the death of the late President, by the act of paricidal treason. The grief of the nation is still fresh, but it finds some solace in the consideration that he lived to enjoy the highest proof of its confidence, by entering on a renewed term of the chief magis tracy which he had been elected to; that he brought civil war substantially to a close ; that bis loss was deplored in all parts of the Union; and that foreign nations have rendered jus* tice to his memory. His removal cast upon mo a heavier weight of cares than ever devolved upon any one of my predecessors. To fulfil my trust, I need the support a...

Captain Sargant stated that if it had. not been for the services of some of the passengers, the cargo might have been damaged. The prisoners had not done any work since. The defence set up was, that the ship was not in a state to go to sea, and the only way the prisoners had of ob jecting to her condition, was to strike. The Police Magistrate sentenced each o...

THE STOLEN LETTER. A LAWYER'S STORY.

THE railway line from Madras to Cuddapah was opened throughout at the beginning of September. As Blondin was performing at Berlin, a short time ago, he fell from his rope, a low one, and escaped with a slight contusion. Ow Tuesday Mr. Robert Ramsden Taylor, solicitor of Huddersfield, was killed while crossing the railway at Oolcar station. The Oorernment of Madras has issued an order directing the reorganization of the native army of Madras, and the introduction of the system now in force in Bengal and Bombay.

PETTY DEBTS. MEEANCHIN. AMONGST the most flourishing institu-<*> tions of this, our adopted country, may be reckoned the Petty Debts Court, or "little-go," as vulgar people call it. To the inquiring mind, the newspaper column which contains each month's cases presents a fruitful subject for study.

The Veterinarian. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 February 1866

The Veterinarian. COLIC or gripes is the most common disease of badly managed horses. It consists of spasms or Violent and irregular contractions, usually of the small intestines, and comes on in sudden fits, with intervening periods of quiet. Whilst tho spasms last, the breathing is harried and the pulse often m high m one hundred; hat when they pan away, both breathing and pulse fall to their natural standard. The pain ie generally relieved by pressure and friction, and is unaccom panied with irritable fever. The animal throws itself violently about, and gets up and lies down . rapidly and frequently.

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 8. THERE is a great deal of talk just now about our new police barracks, where they are to be, and where they are not to be. Mr. Eden objects to have them on the river frontage of the small reserve his ferry is upon. Mr. Pirn objects to hare them a little further back on his side, as they will interfere with the plan of the roads in his new town. The Commissioner of Police is not at home, and what his subordi nates will do is quite uncertain. Now, what is the use of the authorities being bothered by either Mr. Eden and his ferry, or Mr. Pirn and his roads. The reserre is only some acre and a half; so as far as the polite station is concerned, the two may as well hare it between them. It is no good to place the barracks on one side of the river ana the paddock on the other. Why not hare both on one side, and the Police Commis sioner should at once recommend the Surveyor- General to hare the south side reserve surveyed into a town and ...

Mr. Ritchie it appears is in the habit .of destroying the originals of his publications after they were printed, and is under the impression that this paper was stolen from his premises, and pos session obtained bj Mrs. Hudson. It appears that the manuscript in question was forwarded to the Minister of Lands and Works, whose opinion was, as alleged, that it was a fair critique upon a public question.
