LICENSED PUBLICANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

LICENSED PUBLICANS. MEEANCHIN. AT the last annual licensing meeting for the district of Brisbane, there was, accord-<*> ing to the report in the newspapers, an unusually full bench. Certain licenses then refused have since been applied for and granted, in what the writer conceives to have been a decidedly illegal manner. The ninth clause of the Publicans' Act of 1803 distinctly provides that "if any license be refused by any number of jus tices, no such license shall be granted by any less number of justices," and the pro viso goes on to state that the application must not be made within one month fro a the date of re fusal. Whether the latter regula tion was complied with, is a matter of no moment in the consideration of the question we now seek to raise. Of course we cannot presume to divine the reasons which actuated a bench of six or seven magistrates in refusing certain licenses, but we do know that two of the number were afterwards granted by a " less number of j...

News of the Week. WE have been requested to mention, for the information of those who have not visited the Exhibition, that it will be closed positively on Thursday next. There are now so many ex- hibits that we recommend those who take an interest in the colony and its products to avail themselves of the opportunity offered of in specting them, Wb have been requested by the Secretary of the Brisbane Hospital to acknowledge, with thanks, the receipt of £1 6s. from Dr. Emmel heinz and the gentlemen who took part iv the Assaut d'Armes; a large quantity of books from Mrs. Little, and from Mr. James Suther land, Breakfast Creek. Some men were engaged yesterday in fencing off a small allotment of land near tbe Obser vatory, as an enclosure for the Time-gun about to be placed there. We understand that one of the light field pieces, and not, as was ori ginally intended, one of the 24-pounders, will be used for the purpose. It is to be feared, how ever, that even one of these field-pieces w...

ASHFORD. (From a Correspondent of the Warwick Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

ASHFORD. (From a Correspondent of the Warwick Argus.) WE have now fairly entered upon our win-<*> ter, having during last night been visited by a sharp frost for the first time this season. A little before sunrise the thermometer was as low as 28, being four degrees below freezing. For more than two months we have had fine weather with light easterly winds, and without what could even be called a shower of rain; but on Wednesday last, tbe 16th instant, there was quite a break-up—a fine smooth rain having come on about 2 a.m., which continued without intermission till Thursday afternoon, when it gradually cleared up. Had this rain fallen six weeks or a month ago, it might hare done some good, in causing a spring of grass, but being now succeeded by cold and frost, any thing green will be nipped at once. The rain has, however, been very thankfully received, as it has given a fresh supply in the creeks, and has also enabled farming operations to be car ried on. Notwithsta...

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 23. So the drop-scene has fallen upon the per-<*> formance of the last act in our late farcical elec-<*> tion, a casting vote having the power to cut our political wizen. Well, "all is well that ends political well," they say, and if Mr. Palmer is that true Britou he blowed so much about when here, he , might do worse than attend to the requirements : of this corner of the district, which contain on the now legitimate roll, four-fifths of the Port Curtis electors within a radius of 70 miles of Gladstone, who will be " all there" to assert their prerogotive if Mr. Palmer comes the " old \ soldier" too much, for they are Ministerialists nearly to a man; but let the member for the Port Curtis district do his duty towards this place and the colony, he is all right for the ; present. Another splendid specimen of our mineral resources will be forwarded this mail for expo sition, C. J. Clarke, Esq., the Gold Commis si...

My letter this week will, I fear, turn out a negative one, in as much as there have been no importance whatever. The Bey. Mr. Danvers preached here last Sunday to what, for the size of the place, may be termed a large congregation, and I hope, ere very long, to be in a position to announce the commencement of two places of public worship in the township.

The weather is at present very mild and beautiful, although both at night and in the morning there is generally a frost. lam quite annoyed to have so little to communicate this week, and you must impute my shortcoming to the paucity of intelligence.

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 31. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 31. WINTER seems now to have made its appear-<*> ance, and we have clear skies and a rather cool air in the day, with clear nights and frosty atmosphere—already rather strong, and may soon be injurious to late potatoes ""^fog further progress. The clear weather is very favorable for the late maize being stored, and it will likewise suit the late cotton season. On the Albert, I hear that Mr. Buhot is making experiments in sugar manufacture ; but as yet, he has been unable to make very satis factory progress, owing to the difficulty of making the temporary press work satisfactorily. I hear, however, that after considerable perse verance, he has been able to overcome the diffi culty in a manner so as to succeed. We are, at last, going to get a Government township on the reserve opposite Eden's Ferry, the surveyor being already at work on the ground. It would, perhaps, be as well for the workmen on the Albert plantations to be a...

GOODNA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

GOODNA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THE second of a series of lectures intended to precede the formation of a Mutual Improvement Society and lending library in this township, was delivered on Monday evening, by the Rev. evening, by William Draper. The subject chosen was— " Cardinal Wolsey." The lecturer treated the subject in a popular form, without any allusion or leaning to the Sectarian character of the great man's life. In fact, it may be termed a simple biograpliical sketch, interspersed with a number of sketches gleaned from many sources, and avoiding the extremes into which Wolsey's en thusiastic admirers as well as his bitter enemies hare fallen. Tbe lecture was listened to with great attention, and a voto of thanks unani mously passed at its close. There was a large number present. It was announced at the close that the next would be a reading, and that lec tures on " Music," " The Electric Telegraph," and " Chemistry," would follow.

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, May 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, May 19.) AT last we have had really good weather, i.e., some splendid showers. The rain may be too late to do all the good we could have wished for, but there can be no doubt it will be of great advantage to the entire district. From the telegraph office we have ascertained that the rain has been impartial, having visited all the country near the Taroom, Hawkwood, and other stations. Wo have heard that all the male immigrants have at last been engaged, aud that only some married women and children now remain in the depot; their husbands are, however, at work. It is likely that even the women and children that are at present in the depot will hare to shift for themselves this incoming week. The parties most interested keep any infor mation referring to the quartz reefs at Eidswold so entirely to themselves now, that we cannot get to know any certain news of the proceed ings in that quarter. All we can say is, if the owners of the reefs think to forwa...

ROMA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

ROMA. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) May 19. Our town is all commotion for the last ten days. It resembles a beehive, the people are so numerous. His Honor Judge Blakeney arrived here on Thursday, 10th instant, accompanied by the Crown Prosecutor, Mr. Handy, and opened the court for this district on Friday, the 11th, at 10 o'clock a.m. After the usual iorm being gone through, Peter Ryan was placed at the bar on a charge of larceny, to which he pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to six months imprisonment.—Hugh M'Guire was next put forward on the like charge, to which he pleaded not guilty. Tho jury being sworn, Mr. Handy addressed them most eloquently, and told them it was a serious and most critical case to investigate, and one that required their most earnest attention. The evidence being adduced for the Crown, the Judge addressed the jury, who retired for five minutes, when they returned to court with a verdict of not guilty. The prisoner was then discharged. Sylvester Thornton was then p...

NANANGO. (From the Correspondent of the Barnett Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

NANANGO. (From the Correspondent of the Barnett Argus.) ON Tuesday last a court was held here, at which was heard the case of Okeden v. Kilgour for rescue of sheep impounded. Two squatting magistrates came to town apparently with the view of sitting on the case, but your Police Magistrate had decided the case before their arrival, having commenced proceedings before 10 o'clock. Mr. Kilgour pleaded guilty, and was fined five pounds—probably this will be sufficient to deter him from such conduct for the future, but, for a misdemeanor which is so likely to lead, and has so often led to violence and bloodshed, it seems rather a light punish ment to inflict on a person who must be aware of the deplorable consequences which often re sult from such acts. Our school, schoolmaster's house, and adjunct are now finished—they are built somewhat in the chalet, or Swiss style, and are a great im- Erovement to the town; we need not say we ope they may work wonders among onr youth ful population, w...

The attendance was rather limited. On the motion of his Worship tho Mayob (Mr. B. S. Warry), Mr. H. Buckley took the choir. The minutes of the previous meeting were read.

IN accordance with invitations from the com-<*> mittee of the North Brisbane Schools of Arts, the artizans who have been engaged in the con-<*> struction of the new institute met in the large hall, on Thursday evening, to partakeof a banquet. About ninety persons assembled, including the President and many of the committee, the representatives of the city, the architect and contractor, and other gentlemen interested in the institution. As we have on previous occasions described this magnificent hall, it wonld be needless to recapitulate our statements. We may mention, however, that its acoustic capabilities, which were fairly tested for the first time yesterday evening, were found to be everything that could be desired. The same may also be said of the comparatively new system of lighting—the sun light—which has been adopted in the hall, and which for imparting brilliancy and effecting thorough ventilation ha...
