CHURCH PARSONS AND CHURCH MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
CHURCH PARSONS AND CHURCH MEMBERS. Yours, P.B.F. Brisbane, June 7. SIR: We are securing anything rather than an enviable or even respectable notoriety for the way in which church affairs are conducted in this colony. Scarcely a week passes but a rumpus in some congregation or other is reported. This course of proceeding is disgrace ful, and quite enough to driye respectable and peace-loVing people from church attendance al together. I speak of no particular sect—all seem alike. It is certainly not following in the steps of our Master. Surely these " affairs " could be settled without becoming a oublic scandal ?•
LIQUID MANURES AND FODDER GRASSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
LIQUID MANURES AND FODDER GRASSES. SIR: I read the sensible remarks in last Saturday's Queenslander on "liquid manures" with much satisfaction, and I trust many similar may appear from the same pen. My object in pen. My object the present writing is to ask for information as to how the grasses, &c, some time since notified as being growing in the Acclimatisation Society's grounds, turned out ? As many feel interested in the production of fodder, "no doubt Mr. Bernaya or Mr Maepherson could do a value able service by writing on the subject.—Yours, A GROWER. [Our correspondent will find action has been taken in this matter.—See "The Acclimatisa tion Society's Grounds " in page 11.]
STAND UP FOR THE BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
STAND UP FOR THE BIRDS. Yours. A LOVER OF BIRDS. Drayton, May 28. SIR: I am happy to see that through your columns public attention is being drawn to the desirability of protecting the small birds at pre-&lt;*> sent so numerous in our midst. I fully agree to your correspondent A.. U. as to their Tolue; j •which, indeed, cannot be overrated. Not only \ is this true respecting tho agriculturist and I horticulturist, but is to to every resident I in the colony. Insect life at present is torment- ! ing enough ; but were not these pests continually | reduced in numbers by the birds which subsist on them both in their larva and perfect state, we would soon be driven from the country. j Even now, I know old residents who maintain that mosquitoes, etc., are more numerous than formerly; and that some places are inflicted with these poets whore they were at one time j almost unknown. This is especially the case at several head stations, and is attributable to the -destruction of th...
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ANOTHER week of fine, clear, bracing weather, with frosty nights and bright healthy days—the identical weather that farmers could wish for, in order to bring the cultivation into proper bring proper tillage, and to give a healthy tone to growing crops. The plough has been briskly at work in the Ute enclosures in the new reserves, and every settler seems determined to exert his ut most in order to break up as much new ground as possible for cultivation during the present season. There has not yet been any apparent check to vegetation by the night frosts, and feed is still pretty plentiful on the lands out of town, and in the enclosures which were pre served after the late rains, the grain crops, con sisting of wheat, barley, and oats, are, if pos sible, improving in appearance ; as fresh tillers have made them thicker and closer in general growth. There are one or two pieces of wheat looking rather blind and sickly, but any other result would ...
DALBY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
DALBY. THE following items are taken from the Dalby Herald of May 31:— ESCORT OF PRISONERS.—Seven prisoners arrived in Dalby yesterday from Roma and Con- doraine in charge of Acting-h'orgi.'ant llowe aud constables Cameron and A herns. Telegraph Lute to Condamine. — The working party hare commenced stretching the wire on the posts which is to bring Condamine in telegraphic communication with the rest of the colony. The insulators were bang screwed into the posts on Monday, and on Tuesday the first length of wire was stretched. It is expected to be completed to Condamine in three weeks. Mr. Murfield is busy cutting his way through the scrubs beyond Condamine bat it will be some time yet ere he reaches Roma. Piratic Wells.—The public wells are now thrown open for the use of the inhabitants, and are placed under the supervision of the Town Inspector. The soil round the fencing becomes a soft slush, four to six inches deep, in rainy weather or as water is spilled; a few loads of gravel ...
SANDGATE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
SANDGATE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) THIS fashionable little watering-place has been very quiet during the past few weeks, and will continue so, I presume, until the heat and dust of Brisbane will again drive her citizens to again inhale the fresh air here, and to invigorate their enervated frames by a dip in the cooling waters of our beautiful bay. I was told not long since in Sydney by a person of high standing, and, as they say, of long colonial experience, that Sand gate and that part now called Brighton were, in the early days of Moreton Bay, strongly recom mended as the most desirable site for the future town or city of the district. It seems now that nearly all nations, and almost all generations, have had a peculiar fancy to build their cities on the banks of riven, and not on the seaside. I am not going to question the prudence and utility of such selections in general ; but this I know—that Sandgate would have been a much more healthy situation for a city than Brisbane, and t...
Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) June 7th. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) June 7th. THE action taken by the Corporation of Bris-&lt;*> bane in order to the establishment of a market, will not be viewed with very much favor here. The want of a place in which the settlers could meet with purchasers of their produce has long been felt, and some time ago several formers in the neighbourhood took the matter in hand to lee if a portion of the land at the corner of Queen and William or George streets, could not be secured, or at any rate a more accessible ■pot be chosen than the site of the present one ; but as they were unsuccessful, the matter has been allowed to remaiu in abeyance, the opinion keld by them being that it would be better to hare none at all than one in the present posi tion. The contemplated arrangement by which it is made compulsory to take all produce for sale to the market, will entail an extra distance of three miles to those fanners who send their produce in by boa...

WARWICK. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) June 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
WARWICK. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) June 1. OUR town appears to be shaking off the dust with which it has been encrusted for the last four or five years, and we all hope that the golden days, to which our oldest inhabitants are so fond of referring, are not gone for ever. The [Musing of the vote for the construction of the me of railway, from Allora to Warwick, has given new life to the place, and inquiries for business sites and houses to let are becoming more and more frequent. Our Municipal Coun cil also seem determined, if not to lead the way in response to the oft-repeated cry of " Advance, Warwick!" to be in no way behindhand, for, with an extravagance unparalleled in the his tory of any town twice the size of Warwick— like those Freemasons of old—to build, not "a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven," but a Town Hall, which, on ac count of its magnificence and expense, shall be an evidence of their ambition and stupidity to all generations. Fancy a municipality like ...
ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 31. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) May 31. Within a short time there have been two accidents in this town with a small pop-gun, known as "Sharp Repeater." The first occurred to Mr. Massarath, of the Maranoa Hotel; and on the second occasion, to Mr. Tracy, of Surat. Strange to say, the ball went through the left hands of both gentlemen. The former has now quite recovered, and the latter nearly so, from his accident. Roma has suffered a very great loss this last week in the death of the Rev. Mr. Macintjre, who was taken ill when going from here to Surat, for the purpose of officiating in that town. His loss will be greatly felt and de plored by all; for he was a good minister, an eloquent and forcible preacher, and a true and affable friend. He was much respected by all denominations and classes, by both Jews and Christians. I have often seen some of the former class attending his ministrations. Although there are a great body belonging to the Church of England residing in the town a...
MEETING IN DRAYTON ON THE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
MEETING IN DRAYTON ON THE LAND BILL. Toowoomba Chronicle. ON Saturday evening last (June 2) the hon. member for Drayton and Toowoomba met the electors to give his opinions, and to discuss with them the present Land Bill now before the House. The meeting wai very fully attended, and remarkably orderly throughout. Hit Worship the Mayor, Joseph Webb, Esq., was proposed to take the chair, but he begged to decline the honor in faror of Mr. PhiOips, who was unanimously voted to it. The Chairman, having read the advertisement convening the meeting, called on Mr. Groom to address the electors. On riding, the honorable gentleman was well received. His address, although not so vigorous and connected as his late one at the meeting in Toowoomba, was still longer, and occupied more than three hours in delivery. He clearly mani fested every desire to support the Macalister Land Bill now before the House, but contended that leasing clauses should be added for agri cultural reserves, not forgetting...

THE LAND LAWS AND THE LAND LEAGUE. (From the Courier, Thursday, June 7. THE "National Land League of Queens-&lt;*> "land" is now fairly launched into exis-&lt;*> tence, the rules for its guidance having been adopted, and its officers appointed. appointed. Although at present it is only a local affair, there is every prospect that its ramifications will be widely extended. The residents iv most of the important towns in the colony have seized the opportunity, afforded to them by the present recess, of making known their views on the land question,—the greatest of the day; and tlu-y appear without exception to te favorable to the principles, for the promul gation of which the League in question has been instituted. They have, as it wtre, spoken with one «voice upon the subject ; and, when a British people rise to demand their rights, they are not likely to rest until they have obtained them. Hitherto, tl.e colonists generally, and the working classes more especia...

STAR OF QUEENSLAND LODGE OF ODDFELLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
STAR OF QUEENSLAND LODGE OF ODDFELLOWS. THE third annual anniversary of the Star of Queensland Lodge of the Grand United Order of Oddfellows was celebrated on Friday evening by a supper in the Foresters' Arms, Fortitude Valley. This flourishing lodge contains about ninety members, and since its formation has been the means of effecting a vast amount o* good in relieving those of its members who have been incapacitated, through illness or other causes, from obtaining a livelihood for them selves. On this occasion about sixty persons, including representatives of othec lodges, sat down to supper, which was a most sumptuous collation cateredby worthy ho3t Eaves. The affair was a complete success, as might have been expected where the company were determined to enjoy themselves, and the eatables and drink ables supplied in plenteous quantity. The chair was occupied by P.N.F. Beattie, the founder of the Lodge, supported on the right by C.R. Renshawe, of the Ancient Order of Foresters, an...

The Courts. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866
The Courts. THERE is erery prospect of a heavy sitting in the Metropolitan District Court, which com-&lt;*> mences next Wednesday. There are several criminal and ninety civil cases on the list; some of the latter will no doubt be lengthy. In the Court of Bequests there were comparatively few c ises last month, proving beyond a doubt that the District Court is superseding it, except in trivial cases.
