MARYBOROUGH ANNUAL RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

MARYBOROUGH ANNUAL RACES. A few weeks back the idea was broached by a few lovers of the old English sport, that an effort should be made on the Queen's Birthday to resuscitate the annual meet, which "the Bay," in the good old times h-ul good reason to be proud of. Accordingly, an appeal wus made to tho public by a private canvass, and a sum of money vaj obtained which on that score re moved till doubt us to it* suedes*.. The morning broke frosty and clear. Tha day was as line a one as ever gladdened man's heart, and with the young fresh aspect of nature ought to have exhilarated the most drooping soul. Towards 10 o'clock, every available mode of conveyance in the neighborhood was under weigh, or already on the road to the course. The first race was announced to come of at 11 o'clock, and by that time the ground presented a very animated appearance. The first race was for The Mabybobough Annual Race Cup of £18, for all bond fide hacks. Heats. Once round the course. Weight for age. Fi...

UPPER MARY. (From the Tiaro Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) May 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

UPPER MARY. (From the Tiaro Correspondent of the Mary borough Chronicle.) May 28. We have very favorable weather, with little or no frost, though at times we are threatened with more rain. At the coal mines now all is silent—no longer longer are the echoes awakened by the blasting reports. One only of tho staff remains on the ground, but we hope that very soon work will be re-com menced. Disease is reported among the cattlo on the neighboring runs; so far it has chiefly attacked the calves.

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

ROCKHAMPTON. WE are in receipt of files from Rockhampton to May 29. A determined attempt at suicide was made yesterday by a girl named Emma Williams. From what we hare been able to glean of the mad act, it appears that yesterday forenoon the firl entered Mr. Paynter's (chemist) shop, in lost-street, evidently laboring under great ex citement. She asked for some paste used for poisoning rats, and Mr. Paynter having made up a packet, very carefully labelled it " poison." As she was leaving tbe shop she murmured in coherently, " I'll take this when I get home." Having arrived at her dwelling, she swallowed the contents of the picket, and told those in the house that she hod poisoned herself. The announcement created great consternation, and several persons rushed off for tho nearest medi cal man. Remedies, we understand, were em ployed to counteract the effect of the dose. Inquiries were made at several of the chemists' shops, and Mr. Paynter, on being questioned, informed the astonish...

BARCOO. (From a Correspondent of the Rockhampton Bulletin) May 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

BARCOO. (From a Correspondent of the Rockhampton Bulletin ) May 16. I HAVE noticed with great surprise that your valuable journal has no correspondent for the Barcoo district, and consequently many inaccura-<*> cies have from time to time found their way into way print. Feeling assured your readers will be glad to hear from this extensive and important district, I hare much pleasure in announcing that the long-looked-for rain has at last come. On Sun day last great excitement prevailed in conse quence of the hitherto blue sky becoming covered with dense clouds. All were on the alert to welcome the first fall of rain, but Monday and a part of Tuesday had elapsed ere the downfall commenced. It then set in steadily, and, I am E leased to say, still continues. The water oles are filling fast, and if it only continues till to-morrow the river will be running. We have suffered severely for want of grass and water, but still we were better off than many of our neighbors. I su...

LATER FROM THE UNITED STATES. ATLANTIC NEWS TO APRIL 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

LATER FROM THE UNITED STATES. ATLANTIC NEWS TO APRIL 2. BY the barque Australind we (Sydney Empire) have San Francisco papers to April 5th, con-<*> taining telegrams from the Atlantic States to the 2nd of that month. Our latest previous telegraphic intelligence from the Eastern States was to March 23rd. We take the following from our San Francisco papers, in the order of date:— The President's veto of the Civil Bights Bill will probably be sent to the Senate on Monday, and is anticipated with much interest. Various speculations are afloat regarding the probable tone of the message, and, while nothing is cer tainly knowu, it seems to be believed that the President will reiterate his argument used in the Freedmen's veto, against legislation for the South while the Southern States ara unrepre sented, and will avail himself of this occasion to further define his policy. The President yesterday expressed disap proval of Senator Stewart's proposition for a universal amnesty ...

OPENING OF THE RAILWAY TO GATTON. (FROM OCR OWN REPORTER.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

OPENING OF THE RAILWAY TO GATTON. (FROM OUR OWN REPORTER.) THE extension of the Southern and Western Railway from Grandchester to Gatton, being a distance of seventeen and a-half miles, was formally opened on Thursday by a public pleas- ure excursion, and the line will be permanently   open for traffic on and after June 1. The event did not cause much excitement in Ipswich, which may be attributed to the fact   that the excursion was on a much smaller scale   and less important than that by which the first   opening of the line to Bigge's Camp was cele brated. Any enthusiasm which existed was therefore confined to those who were   fortunate enough to receive invitations. It was arranged that the party should be con veyed in two trains—one starting at 9 o'clock a.m., and the other half an hour later. There was consequently a good deal of life about the Ipswich railway station shortly before the hour of tho departure; an...

BOADS TO THE LOGAN. A FARMER need not be surprised at his com-<*> munication not appearing in the columns of the Queenslander. Our rule was broken through by the letter being sent to another journal. The following is republished from the Mel-   bourne Age:— "The New York Tribune, com-   menting on the diplomatic correspondence con-   cerning the Shenandoah, refers to an important   new affidavit submitted by Mr. Adams to the   British Government, in which it is stated that   of the 127 persons on board the Shenandoah,   no less than 78 were, and were known to be British subjects; that the principal guns used during the cruise of the Shenandoah were on board when she sailed from London; that the British Governor of Melbourne was privately entertained by Captain Waddell on the Shenan- doah ; that the Government Engineer of Mel-   bourne was on the vessel two or three times a day, a...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (From the Adelaide Observer, May 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. (From the Adelaide Observer, May 12.) THE RIVERS MURRAY AND DARLING.— Private advices received in town on Friday state that these rivers are still falling. The following is an extract from a letter from the River Dar- ling, near Mount Murchison, dated April 29: — " The country here is looking well after the heavy rains some time ago, but there appears to be no prospect of navigating the river for some months to come, as it is said to be quite dry for miles on the upper part of it, though still running here, and, by the latest accounts, the Murray is still low." Another writer, an old settler, states that he was afraid that this state of things would last for some time, as there was every sign of a dry winter. A letter from Mount Murchison, dated April 29, says :— " River is still falling, and not the slightest hope of a rise at Bourke."

DEATH OF A BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

DEATH OF A BUSHRANGER. THE Bathurst Times of May 23 reports that George Bell, the bushranger, charged with being the accomplice of John Garvey—who com- mitted the daring robbery upon a party of miners at the Ironbarks, on the 6th February last and who inflicted a dangerous gunshot wound upon a German named Hinzerling, and a few moments after lost his own life—died at 11 o'clock, on Sunday night, in our gaol. The evidence as to his identity was unmistakable, and his death is ascribed to the terror with which he was inspired at the prospect of the punishment of his guilt, for he was charged with a capital offence. His fear so worked upon his imagina- tion that he fell into a low fever, and when told that he would die of his illness, he is reported to have replied that it was better for him to die that way than on the gallows. He was first taken seriously ill on the 11th instant, and was attended by Dr. Busby, the gaol sur- geon, and subsequently, at the request of his friends, by Dr. ...

TOWNSVILLE. (From the Cleveland Bay Herald, May 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

TOWNSVILLE. (From the Cleveland Bay Herald, May 19.) TELEGRAPH. — Mr. Walker, the veteran ex- plorer, and party, arrived here on Thursday from Bowen, for the purpose of marking the line for the telegraph from that place to the Gulf.   We understand it is the intention of Mr. Walker to remain here for seven or eight days for the purpose of recruiting his horses. THE WEATHER. — With the exception of an occasional slight shower we have had little or no rain for more than three months. Our declining autumn usually promoting a cool, refreshing, and salutiferous temperature, was rather too sunny and too warm, which is a sure indication of a change in tbe atmosphere. On Wednesday morning last the sky became overcast with a variation of myriads of small, dark, and leaden clouds sailing busily in all directions, as if pre- paring for some grand revolution in the at- mospheric region. The large clouds which devoured the small retreating ones, and feasted upon others, gradually gr...

ROCKINGHAM BAY. May 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 2 June 1866

ROCKINGHAM BAY. May 13. The schooner Percy, Captain Henry, arrived here yesterday with a general cargo. The distance from Cape York to the latitude of Cleveland Bay is considerable, and the vast wilds reaching from the east to the west coasts are now so well known, that anyone can go north or south of the tracks already in existence. If the Flinders route is so well stocked, &c., what are we North Kennedy men to pay Mr. Walker for a walk-over ? I wonder at the O. K. paper not offering to come forward and pay Mr. Walker's expedition expenses, and thus taking a tax off the " Queensland in general." We poor benighted individuals in Cardwell, who are supposed to know nothing of the in- terior, would like to let the editor of the Cleveland Bay Herald, or whoever writes for him, know that we do not judge from hearsay on the supposed copies of Mr. Cassidy or Mr. Macdonalds assertions; we know, fortunately, from actual travel. I do not wonder at our worthy contemporary being annoyed...

CRICKET. The match between the Victoria and United Cricket Clubs, commenced about a fortnight ago, was not resumed on Saturday last. It seems that some dispute in reference to a former match had given rise to a belief that the present contest was to be allowed to drop, so on Satur day, though the majority of the Victoria eleven were on the ground, the principal players on the other side were absent. The cricketing season may now be considered over.

Would not the land, if offered as low as ss. an acre, be bought up by squatter*, aud their friends, just as they do under tho pre emptive right ? 2. If so, in what way would the colony be benrfitted by the reduction in prico ? Personally, I be-here in a low price for land.

THE LAND LAWS AND THE LAND LEAGUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

THE LAND LAWS AND THE LAND LEAGUE. J.J. Bald Hills, June 4. SIR: I have attended carefully to all I have come across relating to the public lands of this colony. From them of a surety, will our pro-<*> sperity spring, and it is, therefore, the duty of every citizen to do wliat ho can to have this capital of our adopted country laid out to the best advantage. The Land League formed in Brisbane may do much good, but nothing yet put forward by them (so far as I have seen, and my only source of information is the Qncens lander) has the force of experience stamped upon it as the letter of "ABO" in your issue of hut Saturday. To offer the land to those who have no land is evidently the proper way of disposing of it. I can safely say, that the set tlers, almost to a man, in this neighborhood (myself included) have bought more land, often far separated, than they will ever put to any use. As land is valueless without fencing and other expenditure, they find out their mis take ...

A HOMESTEAD BILL FOR QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

A HOMESTEAD BILL FOR QUEENSLAND. Yours, J. BRITON. Brisbane, June 4. SIR: Your Ipswich correspondent of last week has hit the right thing—we want a Home-<*> stead Bill for Queensland. Our case is precisely similar to what the "far west" of America was tome twenty years ago, and no doubt simi lar mcasurei to those adopted by the American* would hare like results with us. Then offer an abundance of land at a cheap rate to those who are able to work it. Let the prioe be aa low a* ss. per acre to those who intend to settle, and no fear of others buying if no title could be hod for seven years. The idea of leasing little bits of land (two or three hundred acres) is fal lacious. For what did we leave the lund of our fathers, but to have a home of our own'? —that alone is the charm of immigration. Were no one allowed to take up the " homestead lands " who owned or rented any other real estate, or who forfeited bis claim on buying Bny other real estate, the lands would fall in...
