FAMILIAR LETTERS ON GEOLOGY AS APPLIED TO AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

FAMILIAR LETTERS ON GEOLOGY AS APPLIED TO AGRICULTURAL CHEMISTRY. BY DR .D. MARCH. THIRD LETTER. As the world became colder in its crust the seas likewise cooled, and as these would be fed by rivers, which flowed over granite and gueiss, both would become water-worn, and give rise to our grey wacko formation ; this might be ' aided by the upheaval of the bottom of the sea, ; or the water draining away to some place at a ■ lower level, and thus the previous sea bottom became dry land. It was in the ocean of this period that the great Creator first endowed matter with the powers of life and vitality. Yet up to this period aund through it no trace of marine vegetation can be found, but we know that such must have now existed, as the fossilized remains of shell-fish make their ap pearance, which could only have derived-thcir structure from tho " flora" of the period. Corals are now abundant which denote the genial temporoture of the sea, trilobites with their three hundred eyes, tell us...

THE SEASON AROUND TOOWOOMBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

THE SEASON AROUND TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) I RECENTLY saw one field of nearly a hundred acres as healthy and thick in plant as ever was grown on the choicest lands of Essex or Norfolk; the smaller cultivations are equally promising > wherever the most moderate labor has been extended in cultivation ; the promise of abund ance smiles upon all our cultivated lands, our < soil is good, and our climate temperate, it seems ' therefore a matter beyond comprehension to i discover from whence the source of failure is to arise. I remember the " State of Minnesota," < which a little more than seven years ago was '■ as wild and unsettled as any of our Australian forests, the early settlers were subject to con tinued attacks of the North American Indians, ! and life and property were constantly exposed j to peril and sacrifice ; but the sagacious fore- I sight of the Government induced such a ! rapidity of settlement by those liberal offers and grants wl...

PRESERVING MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

PRESERVING MEAT. THE writer having visited a joint-stock com-<*> pany in Essex, describes the new meat-pre-<*> serving process now being practised there. "The first aim of the company is to obtain the best meat; this procured, not, a* v usuallj done, by purchasing at a meat market the car cases of oxen, sheep, Ac., but they go to the live market, aud their make their purchases. < It will be evident, therefore, that any symptoms ' of disease, rinderpest or other, will be more j easily detected than when the mere carcass is ' bought. The cattle are then conveyed by rail— ! a siding being close adjoining—to the factory, '. which is situated on a farm of sixteen acres pasturage, the property of the company, where they remain for a time until they have reco- , vered from the effects of driving, carriage, ' &c., and are then in fittest condition for > food.

INDIGENOUS SILKWORMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

INDIGENOUS SILKWORMS. Our Gladstone correspondent writes as fol-<*> lows in reference to silkworms indigenous to that neighborhood:— You have some very interesting letters in the Queentlander, upon the Cultivation, 4c, of the Silkworm. Now it may not be generally known that there are (or were) in this neighborhood, •ilkworms indigenous thereto; and if the Acclimatisation Society had been inaugurated about the time of tha last Exhibition, I could hare supplied them with lire cocoons ; —in fact, I did forward some down to Brisbane, but uever heard what became of them. Oue of the most valuable items connected with them is that they feed on our gum-leaves. Perhaps Mrs. Timbrell would pardon me if I suggest that she tries some of her more mature worms if they would eat the leaves of the gum-tree. Mr. Walter Hill has some young trees from here of the sort—the " Scented Gum." lam sorry I cannot forward a specimen, but they are much larger that the the common yellow worm, thei...

Acclimatisation. WHAT THE QUEENSLAND SOCIETY IS DOING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

Acclimatisation. WHAT THE QUEENSLAND SOCIETY IS DOING. THE establishment of the Queensland Accli-<*> matisation Society, at Bowen Park, near Brisbane, is rapidly becoming not only a credit to the society, but to the colony also. This much we say, because the impression is a common one that at Bowen Park the useful gives place to the ornamental, in which latter sense, under all the circumstances of this colony, we would find a difficulty in discovering much beauty about it. Our first object, while fighting with the wilder ness for a footing and subsistence, is the useful and practical; a visit to the Acclimatisation Society's grounds gives the assurance that the proper line is being followed there. The grounds, although yet generally in the rough, are being rapidly brought into an attrac tive form, the main feature of which seems to be an abundance of water. Turn where one will, he is met by pools and ponds, some formed out of the natural waterholes, or those left by th...

SUGAR MAKING AND REFINING. (From the Antigua Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

SUGAR MAKING AND REFINING. (From the Antigua Times.) LAST Saturday evening the court-house was filled with ladies and gentlemen, who had been invited to listen to a lecture on Saccharometry and Concrete, which Mr. A. Fryer had consented to deliver. This gentleman is the head of the well-known sugar refining firm, Fryer, Benson, and Forster, of Manchester, and is the inven tor and patentee of an apparatus, which has been for some time in use in their sugar re finery for the purpose of rapidly condensing the syrup, and which is called by him the Concretor. The firm have purchased a number of estates on the Island of Anti gua, and Mr. Fryer has been here for several weeks, making arrangements for the manufacture of concrete on an extensive scale. He has at the same time been prosecuting various and important scientific researches, bearing upon the sugar cane and its constituents. Mr. Fryer stated that he had visited the island, not to propagate his views, or to sound the praises of his...

BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

BOWEN. OUR files from Bowen are to May 26. The Port Denison Times of that date contains the following:— Mr. J.W. Wilson is showing praiseworthy energy in constructing at his own expense ex pense an excellent trotMr round the corner of his premises in Gregory and George street*, to ob viato the inconvenience of the sand which v to great a nuisance there. It will, no doubt, be a rery great accommodation to him and to his customers. He is a man of the right sort; lie helps himself instead of calling upon the Cor poration to do it at the expense of his fellow citizens. Mr. John Walton, another of our self-helping men, has finished the repairs of the Santa Bar bara, and, we believe, starts to-day to join his timber-getting party. We wish every success to his enterprise, and hope to see him before many weeks are over returning from the Whitsunday Island with the pioneer raft in tow. The Times of May 23, writes:—The Nil Dec peraitdum arrived in port from Wliitsunday Island on Saturday even...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

VICTORIA. WE have received files from Victoria to May 31. The Argus of that date mentions that "a deputation, representing the Commission of the forthcoming Intercolonial Exhibition, waited upon the Hon. H. Parkes, Chief Secretary of Mew South Wales, at Scott's Hotel, yesterday, for the purpose of impressing upon him the im portance of New South Wales taking united action with the other Australian colonies in making a successful display of colonial produc tions. The gentlemen comprising the deputa tion were—Dr. Bleasdale, Dr. Thomas Black, the Hon. C. J. Jenner, M.L.C., Mr. C. £. Bright, Mr. J. T. Sumner, and Mr. J. Q. Knight. Dr. Bleasdale stated that one of the objects of the deputation was to impress on the authorities in Sydney the importance of avoid ing some of the mistakes made at the last Great Exhibition in London, where the various colo nial courts were separated by high walls. It was most desirable that the productions of the whole of the Australian colonies should be gro...

Extracts From the Papers. THE LEICHHARDT SEARCH EXPEDITION. THE O. and M. Advertiser publishes the fol-<*> lowing letter, received by M. Kruger, of Ruther-<*> glen, from his brother in Queensland:— Dear Bernhard, —Having always taken a great interest in exploring, it becomes my lot to supply you with a few facts I accidentally came across, in connection with the Leichhardt expe dition, which I got from an eye-witness. On our road back from the Warrego River, we fell in with a lot of travelling sheep, under the care of Mr. Anderson, who invited us to camp with him that night. After supper, hearing that we had been all over the colonies, he told us that he had been with M'lntyru's expedition. I just wanted to know more particulars about it, a 9 I had heard the party was broken up, and that the horses h^id perished. Anderson said that he had been looking out for new country on the " Paroo" (Mitchell's, of Victoria), and hearing that M'lntyre was on tho road ...

THE WAY CONSTABLE RAYMOND WAS SHOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

THE WAY CONSTABLE RAYMOND WAS SHOT. BLAND, one of the men engaged in the Bargo Brush affair, when constable Raymond met his death wound, sends the following letter to the Sydney Epmire: — " Sir, —I am one of the men who was shot on the escort (14th April), from Berrima to Dar linghurst. Having spoken to Mr. Smith, the attorney, respecting the outbreak as it really did occur, he desired me to use his name to you in submitting my account, as one not actually en gaged in the attempted escap*. Therefore, to be brief, I will state the facts alone from the commencement of the scene. On the Bargo Boad, near Anderson's public-house, the priso ners made their attack on the constables form ing the escort. They failed in seizing the ser geant, who was seated on the box beside the driver. The sergeant got down on the near side, and presented hU rifle; he snapped his piece, but it hung fire, I believe, whereupon he re versed the stock and made a blow at prisoner CrookweU, who had then possessed ...

MR. MARSH ON AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

MR. MARSH ON AUSTRALIAN DEMOCRACY. IT can hardly be denied that the prevalent English misunderstanding of our real condition in the colonies is owing more to our assumed representatives in England than to the indiffer- ence of our judges, or our remoteness from the seat of empire. There are earnest, conscien tious, and intelligent men enough in England to make themselves acquainted with our real state, and to give us the benefit of a fair trial if there was any chance of collecting satisfactory testi mony. Unhappily for us we are in the condi tion of Irish patriots—in the hands of informers. There are a number of gentlemen who owe to us everything, raiment, fortune, and position —and discharge their obligations by slandering us on every occasion. The monopoly of the public lands of this continent for a number of years furnished many ex ceedingly obscure and doubtful people with the means of creating collosal fortunes. At the dawn of a new era iv our history, these gentle men, upon w...

NEGRO AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

NEGRO AMERICA. AMERICA is certainly an exception to other countries, if country we can call a region which is the tenth part of the terrestrial world. When a small European dominion gets into a pecu- niary difficulty, it is very troublesome for it to struggle out. Ererythiug hedges it back. It has, like small colonies, to keep up its own pe culiar establishments, which, however economi cally conducted, still cost something. It has the ill luck, too, like a stranger in a small town, of being too well known. Its prospective in solvency is patent and patented. It has to lean upon the dubious support ot some immense, but distrustful capitalists, like the Barings, the Eothschilds, or the late Baron Sina of Vienna, who make their own terms, and make them extraordinarily high. And then, in the long run, comes the crash. Eren the big states, like the Austrian Empire, when not properly handled, underlie the same fate. But in the ease of America we can never calculate as to the future. The in...

SANITARY REFORM IN ENGLAND. (From the Daily Telegraph, March 21.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 9 June 1866

SANITARY REFORM IN ENGLAND. (From the Daily Telegraph, March 21.) YESTERDAY, in every London church, there was a special prayer to God that He would mitigate the calamity which has been so long ravaging our herds. It is not our business to criticise sermons or to analyse too minutely the various utterances j of devotion. Piety has many voices, and ' some of them are apt to appear dissonant and harsh. For yeai's past, men whose religious earnestness is beyond all cavil, have doubted the wisdom of appeals to the j Almighty which may seem to involve dis- • trust of His infinite wisdom and goodness, or which convey the idea that man can know what is best for him. The wisest i believer is he who accepts good and evil j fortune with equal gratitude—with an equal certainty that all is for the best. When Alfonso of Castile declared that had he been consulted at the Creation he could ' have volunteered some valuable hints, it is . doubtful whether his presumption was greater than that of man...

Miscellaneous Reading. A TRUE MORETON BAY STORY. IN the 20th chapter of Mr. Bennett's Aus-<*> tralian History, just published, we find the following narrative of early life in Moreton Bay:- " Returning then to the southward, the Mer maid reached Moreton Bay on the 29th Novem ber, and anchored at tho mouth of Pumice-stone River, tho very place where Flinden had anchored 22 years before; and which, a* they believed, no European had Tinted in the in* terra!. Scarcely had they lauded when ft num ber of men, supposed to be natives, were teen approaching tho vessel. When they got near, however, the man who was foremost was perceived to be of a much lighter color than the others, aud so soon as he was within speaking oistauee he hailed them in English. He was perfectly naked, although painted in the native fashion, and seemed wild with delight at having discovered his countrymen. 'He was so bewildered with joy,' says Mr. Uniacke, in his account of the circumstance, ' that we ...

TREACHERY TOWARDS BLACKS. FROM the Dalby Herald we learn the follow ing case of ignorant treachery towards blacks.

The ceremony was held near a dense scrub between the Duck ponds and the Broad wate-, oa the Daandine ran, and tribes as sembled from Calandoon, Wallanbilla, Conda mine, Chinchilla, Juandah, Burrandowan, Bun danibah, Weranga, and the Burnett district. The assemblage of a large body of Dartres dependent upon hunting measures for a liveli hood, naturally caused the dispersion of the cattle in the neighborhood of their encampment, •nd Mr. Wilkie, it appears, applied for the ...
