The Queenslander. SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 1866. THE Parliament will re-assemble on Tuesday next, after a three weeks' recess. It is to be hoped that honorable members will apply themselves in earnest to the j ;work before them. The Loan Bill is the only measure which has been passed during the present session, and the business paper is loaded with important subjects which must come on for immediate discussion. Immigration, Railway Management, and the Land Bill are all included iv the work set down for next week. As the Immiora tion resolutions are merely in condem nation of an abuse, they will pro bably not occupy much time now, though J there will be discussion enough whenever i a proposition is brought forward to remove I the abuses. The Land Bill is the main I question on which the public attention | centres. The outside squatters who have i taken the lead will do well to abandon j their opposition to the Bill, and to bring in j a series of resolutions at another time, in ; order to te...

SOCIAL LIFE OF THE CHINESE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
SOCIAL LIFE OF THE CHINESE. (From the Australasian.) ONE of the greatest achievements which shall hereafter be accredited to the present generation is the exploration of China. Western civilisation has at length penetrated through that typical wall, which, like the real wall of history, has shut in and enclosed for so many centuries the most curious aud thickly populated empire in the world. The Jesuit missionary began the work, wl'ich the Protestant missionary has a fair chance of completing. To Anglo-Saxon enter prise, to the spirit of Anglo-Saxon piety, and Anglo-Saxon commerce, to the priest and the merchant are due the fact that China is no longer the terra iiicoynita which our ancestors regarded it. Though fifty years of Europe may still be preferable to the cycle of Cathay in the eyes of the unpoetic Englishman, every year English sagacity is doing something to modify the taunt. Every year the moral difference be tween Europe and China is gradually being les sened. Every year...

THE "BLOW" OF YOUNG COMMUNITIES. (From the Saturday Review, March 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
THE "BLOW" OF YOUNG COMMUNITIES. (From the Saturday Review, March 24.) THERE is no analogy worn more tho-&lt;*> roughly threadbare than that between the life of States and the life of individual men. As each of us, it has been said, has his period of gradual development, suc ceeded by a comparatively stationary period, and finally by one of decay, so nations have their stages of infancy, of adult vigor, and of senility. It was once fashionable to quote the various instances of races which had waxed and waned and then become practically extinct. In the last chapter of the Positive Philosophy, Comte tells us with his customary dogmatism that the " collective organism " is necessarily sub ject, like the " individual organism," to an inevitable spontaneous decline. This cheer ful prospect is, it is true, adjourued for an indefinite period; but the day is to come when our remote descendants will discover that the faculties of each generation are becoming dimmer than those of i...

Commercial Intelligence. Ipswich.—The Queensland Time* otSakurdAj says:—The past week has been very dulL Nothing is thought of but racing matters ; and, moreover, it has been a broken week, for though few houses closed on Thursday very little busi ness was transacted. Money still continues very tight, and merchants are reluctantly forced to extend the time for customers to meet their engagements. The idea of opening fresh credit accounts is not entertained. After the races it is expected that things will tale a change for the better. Flour is firm at last quotations. Groceries still continue rery high ; a few articles of consumption, such as bottled and dried fruits, are now landing ex Flying Cloud and Osbourne House. Raisins are quoted at 7Jd to 8d ; cur rants, 6d to 6H; and bottled fruits at from 12b 9d to 13s per dozen. Sperm candles are almost out of the market, and will soon be so altogether, as there is no likelihood of a supply. Good brands of brandy, both pale and dark, are ...
