CHURCH OF ENGLAND MEETING AT ROCKHAMPTON. (COMMUNICATED.) A REPORT of the above was supplied by their own reporters to both the Rockhampton news-<*> papers, but was suppressed.

PROGRESS OF THE BRISBANE BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

PROGRESS OF THE BRISBANE BRIDGE. A LARGE concourse of people were assembled on the bridge on Monday afternoon, and seemed greatly interested in witnessing the operations being performed in connection with lowering the first cylinder of the permanent bridge to its bed in the river. On descending to the working platform underneath the present temporary structure (to which we were admitted through the courtesy of Mr. Bourne, the contractor, Mr. T. Oldham, and Mr. John Jones, the con tractor's engineer), we found a portable steam engine of 10-horse power busily engaged in driving the four inch double discharge cylin drical pump, which was rapidly clearing out the water from the interior of the left baud cylinder of pier No. 9. We were informed that the pumping operations were i oninieneed about 13 o'clock, and that considerable pro gress had been made in sinking the cylinder to the required depth. The settlement of the cylinder at the com mencement of operations showed a gradual sub sid...

County Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

County Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 30. ONE very noticeable effect of the past year's drought is to be found in the impetus it has given to the growth of a disinclination amongst the farmers to the employment of any large amount of labor. Considering what we have passed through this is scarcely to be wondered at, yet I think that this disinclination may be carried so far as to prove injurious, not only to tbe laboring classes, many of whom no doubt are now suffering from its influence, but also to be detrimental to the interest of the farmer himself. A long course of observation has con vinced me that tbe nett yield from a farm is not so much to be considered a* in proportion to the acreage thereof, as it is to the amount ex pended thereupon, always supposing it judiciously expended, as it will then be a sure index of the state of cultivation. If, therefore, the dispensing with much of the labor hitherto employed is made the order of the day among the...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

VICTORIA. WE have files from Melbourne to the 23rd instant. The Argus of that date reports:— The London Missionary Society's barque John Williams having arrived in this port, a public meeting of the friends and supporters of the South Sea Missions was held in Chalmers' Church, Eastern-hill, last evening. There was a very large attendance, and the Rev. A. M. Henderson presided. Short addresses were delivered to the assemblage by the chairman, Dr. Cairns, and the Rev. Mr. Sunderland, ex planatory of the future objects and past labors of the mission. The several speakers pointed out the imperative necessity that existed for the suppression of all sectional antagonism and petty jealousies wbich might arise amongst the representatives of the various creeds at present engaged in the great undertaking of Christianis ing the islanders of the far South Seas; and dwelt in commendatory terms upon the unflagging steadfastness aud zeal whbh had been displayed by the missionaries who were already...

MISCELLANEOUS. Chicago, April 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. Chicago, April 2. A terrific tornado swept over parts of Illinois and Indiana, on the 20th, the details of which have just come to hand. It seems that it first appeared in Johnson county, in the extreme southern portion of Illinois, and proceeded north about 100 miles to .Douglas county, and thence east fifty miles to Montgomery, Indiana, where it disappeared, leaving a traik of desola tion three hundred yards wide. The total loss of life is estimated at from sixty to one hundred, including entire families of from five to nine persons. Houses, trees, and cattle were taken up bodily, and heavy articles, whioh have beon recognized, have been carried twenty miles. The bill, establishing eight hours as a legal day's work of all kinds cf mechanical labor, including minors and lumbermen, and excluding farm and team laborers, passed the Pensylvania House of Representatives on the 29th: ayes, 69 ; noes, 14. The effort to give house servants the benefit of the bill was negativ...

THE PARAGDYAN WAR. New York, March 30.—News from the seat of war on the Parana river, states that on Jan-<*> uary 31, the Paraguyan force of three thousand crossed to the southern bank and had a battle with the allied van-guard. They destroyed a large a-cumulation of timber which the allies were c Meeting to make rafts, and retired in good order. The Brazilian fleet remained at C'orrientes, awaiting the arrival of the Admiral, when operations were to be commenced, but it. is believed that the obs ructions in the river are so completo thut the vessels will not bo able to do much. The question of abolishing slavery in Brazil is to be brought before tbe adjourned session of the Imperial Assembly.

NEW ZEALAND. THE WEST COAST GOLD-FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

NEW ZEALAND. THE WEST COAST GOLD-FIELDS. IN its summary for Europe, the West Coast Times, of 12th instant, remarks that the past month has been characterised more by a steady adherence of the miners to old ground than by ground by fresh discoveries made. With the exception of the Hau Hau diggings, no further new rushes have taken place during that period. The last and most delusive rush that ever took place on the West Coast—that to Bruce Bay—has for the time so disheartened and impoverished many that old claims deserted in the time of excite ment are now receiving mare attention, and furnishing to their former owners good if not handsome returns. . The latest intelligence from the Hau Hau states that the gold is found on a sandstone bottom, the wash being from twelve to eighteen inches. The sinking varies in depth, according to the inequalities of the surface, the shallowest holes being close to the creek; but, as the run of gold has beeu lost there, some parties are !>rospectin...

THE NEW ATLANTIC CABLE. (From the European Times, March 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

THE NEW ATLANTIC CABLE. (From the European Times, March 12.) DURING the last few days the Telegraph Con-<*> struction and Maintenance Company have begun, in real earnest, work upon the new Atlantic cable. Little had been done since the return of the expedition in August last, as there was no reason why the cable should be ready very much sooner than it will be needed. The Great Eastern still lies in the Medway, with the remainder of last year's cable on board ; and this will again be used during the present year, when that part of the cable which will have then enjoyed a twelve months' rest on the bed of the Atlantic will be grappled for. Captain Ander son will once more have charge of the big ship, and he will again have the invaluable assistance of Mr. Halpin, the chief officer. Mr. Canning and Mr. Clifford will be, as in last summer, in charge of the laying of the cable, and Mr. De Sauty will be again in charge of the electrical department. Thus, so far as skill goe...

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, May 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, May 19.) TWELVE hours' steady, soaking rain on Wed-<*> nesday afternoon last gives promise to the dis-<*> trict of a fair supply of young grass for the approaching lambing season, though the water- holes have been slightly affected—in the neigh borhood of Clermont, at all events. On Thurs day morning the weather cleared off, and be came bracingly cold. The dust has disappeared, and for the next few months the climate is likely to be as enjoyable as the most capricious human being could desire. More rain would do good, but we have reason to be heartily thankful for the supply already vouchsafed, and trust the Ruler of all tilings to provide for future neces sities when they arise. A small sample of gold, weighing 2£ grains, has been handed to us as the product of two handfuls of red clay taken from around the roots of a tree immediately behind the Copperfield Hotel. The tree, it appears, was being " grubbed," on the...

MACKAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

MACKAY. THE following items of news are taken from the Mercury of May 9:— THE TELEGRAPH.—The erection of the first telegraph post in Mackay took place yesterday, and passed off as unregaided as if we were ignorant of the valuo of tha communication to be enjoyed tlirough its agency. The occasion is surely as deserving of some commemoration as the vUit of an official big-wig liberal in promises alone. We understand from Mr. M'Quarrie, the contractor, that ho anticipates completing tho erection of the posts through to Port Deni- I son in a very short time, but we will treat more ' upon the subject in our next. Minerals.—A correspondent, under the si<»- ' naturo of " Miner," and whom we know to be conversant with the subject, writes to say that I while the men engaged on the telegraph line \ were sinkiug post holes on Greenmouut station ! they found great quantities of oxide of copper, an excellent indication of the presence of a lode at no great distance.

DALRYMPLE. (From the Correspondent of the Cleveland Ban Herald.) April 30. THE drought, which is so severely trying other parts of the colony, is passing us over lightly. From up country accounts there is still plenty of water and grass, though the latter gra*3, though is getting dry. All stock are in good condition, and a first-rate lambing anticipated. A meeting was held here on Wednesday last for the pur pousc of collecting funds to cut a hue of road to avoid the Basalt, four miles from town. £47 was collected at once in the room, and the re mainder will doubtless soon be collected. £100 will make a good road of it, and remove the only objection to tho present line.

A VIRTUE IN TOBACCO. NON-SMOKER.-You are mistaken.

Civil Sbbvicb.—The two brothers of whom J'ou enquire are the sons of a gentleman in Eng and who for a long time was member of Par liament for a county district in Essex. The I family is more favorably known for intense re spectabiUty and integrity of Ufe than for any% talents which would distinguish its members for I eminent statesmanship. 5o doubt the influence I you speak of qualified them for office in this climate.

RANDOM RAPS. "While I live I'll crow!" Legend on a Two-foot— [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

RANDOM RAPS. "While I live I'll crow!" Legend on a Two-foot — [COMMUNICATED.] THE other day, whilst chatting with an intelligent carpenter, who was engaged in making some alterations in my front verandah, I happened to pick up one of the instruments of his craft—namely, the twenty-four inch gauge, more commonly known amongst the uninitiated by the un grammatical title of a two-foot. Now, as I am not in the habit of using these instru ments myself I cannot say whether or no all are alike in every respect, but at all events on this occasion my attention was arrested by the striking motto which it bore, and which appears at the head of this random article. Above the motto itself there appeared what I presume was intended for the figure of a cock, though the engraver had taken strict care not to violate the commandment which forbids us to " make the likeness of anything that is in heaven or earth," and consequently had delineated it in such a manner as would have puzzled even the erudit...

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY—IN A VERANDAH. Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, May 24, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY—IN A VERANDAH. Kangaroo Point, Brisbane, May 24, 1866. BY A NEW CHUM. METHINKS that the royal and loyal salute which has just thundered from the opposite shore would be more gratifying to the ear of Victoria Regina than all the salvos that are sounding this day over the length and breadth of the "old country." She is accustomed to the throb of the great heart itself; but what a new sensation it would be to her to touch the pulse at the far extremities, and to feel the quick vigor of allegiance answering, throb for throb, to the life-centre that bounds and heaves in the bosom of the empire! Proudly pleasing as indeed it must be to receive the courtly homage of the nation's mature manhood, surely there would be a doubly tender delight in lis- tening to the praise that is ordained out of the mouth of babes and sucklings. This little and remote extremity is alive with the life-blood of loyalty. Whatever can be done by cannon, bunting, music, and public and private f...

There wero not so many people on the courae as we expected to see, con sidering that it was the last day, and offered the greatest attraction in point of sport. The attendance was a little better than was the case on Friday; by far the largest proportion were pedestrians, the number of horsemen and car riages being particularly limited. The stand, which was about the only place, from which a good view of the races could he obtained, was comfortably filled. Lady Bowen, attended by Captain Pitt, was among the spectators, and occupied a seat in that part of the stand Bet apart for the ladies. Among the illegitimate amusements going on, w...
