Scientific and Statistical A FRENCH official return (unpublished) shows that the Mexican expedition has cost France, up to the 31st of December, 1865, no less a sum than £27,000,000 sterling. The losses in the French forces (land and sea) have been 11,414 men, viz.:—killed, 3319; died from wounds or effects of climate, Ac., 4928 ; disabled ior life, 3167; grand total, 11,414. Ix a paper which has just been presented to the French Academy of Science, M. T. Lefut announces the discovery of urea (the product of tissue decomposition) in the milk of herbivorous animals. From ten litres of pure cow's milk he obtained no less than a gramme and a half of nitrate of urea, which was recognised by the form of its crystals and by its reaction with per nitrate of mercury.

Odds and Ends. LOST AT SEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

Odds and Ends. LOST AT SEA. Englishwoman's Domestic Magazine. NOT even a stone to mark his grave! Down in the fathomless deep he lies; Above him tosses the restless wave, And colums of surge to his memory rise: unknown to all, yet hi* sleep is ag ttouud As If he were buried in holy ground! No marble scroll or his name to tell— Ilit name that was—but wliat reck* lie now? It moves him not; 'tis over, and well: Tliere U tumult above, but there's peace below. Ko sound comes there hit sleep to break- Can he ever wake, can be ever wake ? He was luUed to rest mid the tempegt'* roar. His death-couch uuder tbe curl of the foam; The MUows his dirge chant evermore— A dirge of death, yet a welcome home; The sea his sepulchre, let him sleep At rest midst the throes of tho rostles* deep. And many a merry barque may go, And bird glide merrily over tbe spot, Xor less will tbe flsh-swarra dance below— He will heed them not, he will heed them not. Only then shall he rise from his bed, When the Ocean ...

WEEDING THE TURF. (From The Field, March 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

WEEDING THE TURF. (From The Field, March 3.) AMONGST the various expedients adopted by ingenious mortals who are anxious to turn an honest penny, a dishonest shilling, or a felonious pound, few are more remark- able than those of the professional " tip ster." No census ever yet compiled has given an exhaustive catalogue of trades and employments. It is true that one distin guished member of the Civil Service courageously described himself as " Execu tioner, Public;" but, as a rule, men are rather shy of such candid confessions. Many a deluded shareholder must have learnt by this time that there are such beings in the world as " promoters" and "floaters;"—but the beings in question shelter themselves under the gentle eu phemism of "Financial Agents." For aught we know, the burglar may be an " Operative Locksmith," and the thimble rigger a " Commission Merchant." It is certain, at any rate, that no one ever for mally describes himself, is summoned on a jury, or pays income-tax as a " ...

RUMORS OF WAR IN GERMANY. (From the Daily Telegraph, March 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

RUMORS OF WAR IN GERMANY. (From the Daily Telegraph, March 20.) PEACE or war? that is the question which is now anxiously discussed in every city of Germany. The air is filled with rumors of an impending conflict between impending Austria and Prussia; nor are the symptoms wanting which ordinarily precede the actual outbreak of hostilities. We hear of couriers constantly passing between the capitals of the two countries; of military councils in which the contingencies of a possible campaign are freely discussed; of warlike preparations and bellicose exhibitions of public feeling. It cannot be denied that on both sides motives are at work which may render the two great German Powers willing, if needs be, to appeal to the arbitrament of war. The actual casus belli is derived, as usual, from the interminable Schleswig-Holstein ques tion. Prussia, as we foretold from the commencement of the contest with Den mark, is resolved upon appropriating the territory wrested from Scandinavian rule...

THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN JOCKEY CLUB RACES. JOTTINGS BY NIMROD. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

THE NORTH AUSTRALIAN JOCKEY CLUB RACES. JOTTINGS BY NIMROD. Tuesday next being the first day of the great races at Ipswich, the sporting portion of our community are now beginning to wend their way thither. Already the principal horses which performed here have taken their departure for the west-end, in order to be got as fit as possible, to meet fresh antagonists there; and they wiU need to be in best trim to compete suocessfuUy with some of the flyers. The running of the several horses at the Tirf Club meeting wdl enable betting men to judge of what they are Ukely to do elsewhere. The short interval which exists between the two meets does not, it may be observed, allow of their forms being much improved. Every one looks forward to excellent racing. The valu able prizes which the Club of the sister town has offered, hare been successful in attract ing a large number of horses from other parts of the colony, and there wiU be several animal* of good quaUty on the course besides those...

TOOWOOMBA. June 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

TOOWOOMBA. June 1. A fatal accident occurred this morning to a man named George Fettings, a well-sinker, who was employed by Mr. Larkins, the contractor. It appears that a bucket fell down the shaft, striking the deceased on the head, and killing him instantaneously. The skull was frightfully crushed. Mr. Douglas, the Clerk of Petty Sessions, received notice to-day of bis suspension. A Board has been appointed to enquire into the charges against him, and already twenty-six witnesses have been subpoenaed to give evidence against him. A petition is in course of signature to be pre sented to His Excellency the Governor, praying for a remission of the sentence passed upon Masterman. There is to be a meeting at Drayton to-mor row evening, on the subject of the Land BilL A meeting will be held at Highficlds next week on the same subject. The feeling in both places in favor of the Government measure is very strong. Mr. Bawlins has refused to come forward as a squatting candidate in the eve...

Classified Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

The telegraphic correspondent of the Sydney Empire forwarded the foUowing, dated March 28 :—" The dejeuner to the Hon. Mr. Verdon was attended by about 100 gentlemen, the Hon. C. J. Jenner in the chair. The Chief Secretary of New South Wales, Mr. Parkes, was present. Mr. Verdon was accompanied by a procession as far as the Bailway Station." Holloway's Pills and Ointment.—Low ness of Spirits, Hypocliondriacisni, Insanity.— These formidable diseases are usually caused by a disordered condition of one or more of the digestive organs, aud, most deplorably, com mence at the meridian of life. The distressing symptoms need no enumeration : they are known in some degree to the wisest and best of mau kind, in well as to the weakest. Whenever the liver, stomach, and kidneys are roused, the mor bid feelings and ideas vanish; to effect this happy resulr. nothing more is needed than fric ture over those organs with Holloway's oint ment, whilst his pUls are Ukewise taken.

WARWICK. (From the Argus, May 26.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

WARWICK. (From the Argus, May 26.) THE late rain has proved most advantageous to the farmers of the district. All have em-<*> braced the opportune moment of putting their wheat, into the ground, and it is to be hoped wheat into the ground, and it is to be hoped they will realise good crops. The soil is now in the best condition, and nothing is wanting but a proper attention to the duties of farming. Thb Vibson Dramatic Company.—We observe from our advertising columns that the above talented company intend performing here for a few evenings. This being the first appear ance of a professional dramatic company in Warwick, we have no doubt the general public will appreciate the enjoyment of a few nights with those who can afford amusement of the highest character. Wkslbtaw Chapbl.—The Sabbath school connected with this chapel held its annual tea meeting on Thursday last.

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 21.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, May 21.) The weather has changed again, but not as we anticipated. A fine bracing westerly wind set in yesterday, and there is now every proba-<*> bility that we shall have fine weather for the races. Ou Saturday last a son of Mr. Harris, of Little Ipswich, had his arm broken by being thrown from a horse which became restive in consequence of some boys throwing stones at it. Dr. Lossberg set the injured limb, and the youth is now doing well. The Engineer of Roads, Mr. Austin, has an nounced that men iv Ipswich who cannot obtain employment, and who are willing to work on the roads, may apply at the depdt to be taken on. The wages given are, we believe, 20s. per week for single men, and from 255. to 30s. for married men ; rations also are supplied. A man named Thomas Wall had his thigh broken by falling off the verandah of the Cri terion Hotel on Tuesday afternoon. The same limb was broken about three months since, and about a month a...

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

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WE have had several days of mild open weather during the past week, with frequent showers; but on Tuesday evening the air be-<*> came cool, and as the wind took a more southerly bearing, a clear bracing atmosphere brought our second warning or approaching winter. To-day a brisk chilly wind is blowing, and the thermometer is steadily sinking to freezing point. Onr visitors, drawn hither by the District Court sittings, seem somewhat un easy as to the severity of our temperature, and " set up their backs, while they grumble at its numbing influence on to«s and fingers. A few days of such weather will, however, we trust, check the large amount of sickness which has been prevalent lately, and give a healthier tone to the public health; although much of this sickness may be traced to im purity of water supplies, and the neglect of those sanitary precautions which are necessary -to the preservation of health in latitudes much colder th...

FOOT-BALL CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

FOOT-BALL CLUB. A MEETING of the members of the newly formed Foot-ball Club was held at the Metro- politan Hotel on Thursday evening. About 20 members were present; and the first business transacted was the election of twelve new mem- bers. The rules drawn up by the provisional committee were agreed to with a few alterations. The annual subscription was fixed at 5s. The usual officers were appointed—the secretary being Mr. T. Board, and the treasurer Mr. G. Cowlishaw, to act with a committee of eight. The uniform chosen was a scarlet shirt, with a distinguishing color for the cap tain. It was provided that all future elections of members should be by ballot. A resolution was passed authorising the printing of the rules, as well as the laws of football passed at a meeting of delegates of clubs held in Melbourne on tbe 8th ult., which latter, it was decided, should be the laws recognised by the Brisbane Club. The secretary stated that   balls had been ordered, and as soon...

NEWS AND NOTES [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

NEWS AND NOTES BY A SYDNEY MAN. I AM afraid that the revival of my corres-<*> pondence, after a lapse of several days, will not bring with it anything particularly interesting and acceptable. We shall, however, I hope, get on all right by-and-bye. In the meantime I must try to send you an abstract of current ] events. The death of the Prince de Conle has i occupied most attention during the last few days. He was but little known here generally, and perhaps if it had not been for his untimely taking off, he might have passed through the colonies, completed bis tour, and returned home without particular remark, for " Princes and kings may flourish and may fade," and so forth. But, after all, there is something very melancholy in the idea of a young man, as the Prince was only twenty-two years old, with rank, family associations, abundant wealth, historic hereditary glories (for, surely, St. Louis was one of his ancestors), and witb every earthly prospect of enjoying life...

BLACK AND WHITE. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

BLACK AND WHITE. [COMMUNICATED.] BY A NEW CHUM. I HAVE been in lands where my English face has been stared at as a novelty, where I have felt myself an aggressive exception, an item in a mere interloping minority. I have been warned by an occasional stone that my presence was an intrusion, and my religion an abomination. In previous journeyings, in short, I have received from "natives" many disagreeable indications that they were at home, and I'm the wrong box. How different in this land! This is no more my country than those to which I have referred. I was not born here. In the long line of my ancestry, from Adam down through Noah to the man I called father, there is no one who in habited it, or had the most gossamer thread of association with it I had to be taught that there was such a place. Though I write at present in the midst of English surroundings, with one of Gillot's pens, and with ink manufactured by Cooper and Co., 5 Shoe-lane, London, the region around me is more stric...

RAILWAY LOAN MEMORANDA. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

RAILWAY LOAN MEMORANDA. [COMMUNICATED.] IT may not possibly be denied that under certain given circumstances railways will, in the words of the Engineer-in-Chief, make the country, if the country will make the railways. But there is, on a wiser authority than his, a time for all things. When Mr. Pease—a very different man from Mr. Fitzgibbon—said, " Let the country but make the railroads, and the railroads will mako the country," that clear headed merchant referred to his country, its necessities, and its trade. Had he been told that when he enunciated the truth applicable to Great Britain, he really had in his mind American Continents, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the Rhine, the Danube, and the Euphrates,* Hindostan, and Siberia, his quaker collar would hare stood stiff on end at the bare idea of his being capable of any such absurdity. What, as the sentence stands, it clearly shows he fully apprehended, was, that the traffic of Great Britain required that extended facility which m...

MARYBOROUGH. WE have received files to May 30. The Chronicle of that date contains the following items:— On Sunday last, the new building erected for the Church of England was for the first time opened for Divine worship. The services were not made special for the occasion. The attendance w\s very large. The members of this communion are to be congratulated on the chauge they have made. The building is neat and commodious, and what is not unimportant, is free of debt—but a fuller description of all that appertains to the building we ore promised for our next issue. Notices hare been issued to witnesses on one of the cliarges against Macpherson, to appear in Brisbane at the assizes on the 21st August next. The charge on which he will then be placed on trial we believe will be au attempt to murder a publican named Wills, on the Hough ton River, for which he was committed by the Bowen Bonch, but on his way to Rockhampton he prevented coming off, by escaping from custody.
