TOOWOOMBA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
TOOWOOMBA. The D.D. Gazette of the 25th states that one of the objections made by those who opposed the fixing of the Railway Terminus in Russell-&lt;*> street was the insufficiency of the approaches from the town for the purposes of traffic We understand that this drawback will not escape the notice of Government, and that the ap proaches .in question will be levelled and straightened. The present bridge in Russell street will also be replaced by another, fire feet higher, supported on piles, and having a width ut forty feet.

Commercial Intelligence. QUEENSLANDER Office. Friday evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
Commercial Intelligence. QUEENSLANDER Office. Friday evening. THERE has been a fair amount of business transacted during the past week, but prices generally are unaltered. Maize is very scarce and commands good prices. It is quoted at 6s 6d to 6s 9d wholesale, but is likely to rule lower, as new maize of local growth is now com ing in pretty freely, and, as far as can be ascer tained, there is every probability of a good crop. In bran and o*her articles of fodder there is no movement to notice, and quotations rule at last week's rates, as given in the prices current. The clearances of the week include that of the Queen of the Colonies for London, with nearly 2700 bales of wool, a few bales of cotton, and the usual quantities of hides, tallow, horns, &o. This is the fourth ship of the wool season, and, it may be noted, takes the largest cargo of the season. To follow her there are on the berth the Montmorency, ■hip, belonging to the same line, and the barques Valetta and Loch...

STOCK AND STATION MARKET. FATTORINI, MURPHY and Co., report- Co., report— Cattu BTATioxfl.—ln consequence of the severe state of the country, which is now as suming a most deplorable aspect, occasioned by an incessant drought, nothing has been doing. Superior properties bare been placed in the market, bat sale or purchase can neither be made or effected. Shkrp Stations.—Similar remarks might appropriately apply to this description of pro perty.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THE Perth Enquirer of 25th December takes rather a hopeful view of affairs in Western Aus-&lt;*> tralia. "Since the year 1811 (says our contem-&lt;*> porary), with the cessation of the operations of the Australiud Company, immigration, such at least as introduced capital with labor, may be fairly said to huvo ceased; and although linos 1850 the Government havo lauded, in round numbers, 8500 convicts, besides military pen sioners and their families, aud a fair proportion of free immigrants, tho population of Western Australia is under 20,000. The Government expenditure of at least £120,000 for each year since 1860, has of course had a vastly beneficial effect on the general body of the settlers, and has to a certain extent stimulated enterprise; but the continued stroam of emigration from our shores to the golden colonies^ added to our virtual isolation fisAi them, has been the main cause . our retardation; and it lias not been quite un natura...
NEW ZEALAND. LATER FROM HOKITIKA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
NEW ZEALAND. LATER FROM HOKITIKA. THE Nelson Examiner states that accounts from the various gold-fields around Hokit[?] are on the whole satisfactory. One or two new rushes are reported, and more extended opera- tions on some of the old fields are being pro ceeded with. From the Grey the accounts are very encouraging. Numerous new rushes haw ' taken place, and the yield of gold has been very large. In two days no less a quantity than 7000 ounces was sold at tho banks. The s.s. Wal laby arrived at Nelson ou tho Bth, bringing 2000 ounces of gold from the Grey. This was shipped by the Union Bank, and some 5000 ounoet were in the hands of the other tanks.

Upon the general condition of the province, it soys :— "In another column we publish full details of the occurrences of the month.

Extracts from home Papers. LORD PALMERSTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
Extracts from home Papers. LORD PALMERSTON. A writer in the present number of Frazer's Magazine records numerous anecdotes illustra-&lt;*> tive of Lord Palmerston's character, from which we make the following extracts: Every one has heard the story of Sheridan's dinner party, at which the sheriff's officers acted as waiters. On its being mentioned as apocry phal at Brocket, " Not at all," exclaimed Lord Palmerston, " I was at it. Sheridan, Canning, Frere, and some others, including myself, had agreed to form a society (projected you' may remember by Swift) for the improvement of the English language. We were to give dinners in turn; Sheridan gave the first; and my attention was attracted to the peculiarity of the attend ance by the frequent appeals on the part of the improvised servants to ' Mr. Sheridan.'" " And did you improve the language ?" "Not certainly at that dinner; for Sheridan got drunk, and a good many words of doubtful propriety were employed." He was a puris...
LATER FROM BRAZEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
LATER FROM BRAZEL. New York, December 1. — Advices have been received from Rio de Janeiro to the 4th of November, by the steamer from Havana. This is the opening of a regular communication with Brazil by a direct steam mail route. It was expected at Rio de Janeiro that the war will soon be over. The victories of the allied forces over the Paraguayans are deemed decisive. Gold was at par at Rio de Janeiro. There is no further news relative to the move ment of the Paraguayans. They had received another repulse at Corrientes. Professor Agassiz was at last accounts follow ing the upward course of the Amazon river. It is said he discovered sixty new species of fish. The return of the Emperor to Rio Grande will be marked by popular fetes. At the Mint a gold medal is to be struck in his honor. It is expected that there will be a large immigration into Brazil from the United States. Several gentlemen from Tym*"*?!* were in Brazil, seeking localities for emigrants at Rio- Grande del Sur.

UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
UNITED STATES. THE following, from the San Francisco papers to December 4, is the latest from the United States, by overland telegraph to California:— Washington, December 1.—So far about 75 members of the llouse of Representatives have arrived. The oaucus of the republican members called for to-morrow uight, is to select candi dates for the Speakership, and other officers. The earlier days of the session will be occupied , with ceremonies in memory of the late Presi dent, and a number of addresses have already been prepared by able men. New York, December I.—A special to the Times says:— President Johnson's letter to Governor Holdcn disappoints those who had hoped he would insist on the admission of the tioutherm mem bers of Congress, as it shows that he will insist on an honest compliance with the terms of his policy. Tho republican members of Congress already here Bhow in conversation that they believe that tho President has undergone a de cided change in his feelings towards the...
WARWICK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
WARWICK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 29. WE have had a continuation of dreadful hot weather, which is seriously affecting the maize crops. The early crop will be a failure, for most of the plants are feathering without the plants feathering •ign of a cob. The late maize may succeed if we get rain shortly, bat although the days are oppressively warm, and each erening promises a thunder shower, the dense mass of collected clouds gradually disperse, and with it hope dies away. Such have been our prospects for some days. We were visited by a small thower on the night of the 27th, which retired the grass, and has afforded hope of more rain; bat unless it comes soon, the winter prospects for stock will not be very encouraging. Thejarmers in Warwick are placed ia a pecu liar position. We hare had a fine crop of wheat, and notwithstanding that we hare an excellent steam mill on the spot, the importa-, taon of Adelaide flour continues brisk, while there is a very extensive export o...
THE TOWN COMMONAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
THE TOWN COMMONAGE. "A. O. HERBERT. "To S. W. Aldred, Esq., Warwick." "A. C. GREGORY." The following report has been received by the Municipal Council concerning the petition lately forwarded to the Government by the inhabitants of Warwick praying for a Com- monage:—• " Brisbane, December 21,1865. " Sir, —With reference to the petition of cer tain of the inhabitants of Warwick, praying for a commonage, transmitted to the Government through you, I am directed to forward you a copy of the report of the Surveyor-General upon this petition ; and, at the same time to state, that the petitioners must be laboring under >wme delusion in asking for a commonage, the extent of which precludes it from being acces sible for such stock as commonages are intended for. "Parties who wish to run herd* of cattle must take up unoccupied country under license, in the usual way, for although the number of cattle which e*«h householder is entitled to run ' on the Warwick Commonage require* to be fixed ...
GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, January 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, January 20.) THE weather has been delightful during the last fortnight. Every day we have had a fine cool breeze from the N.K , with clouds which have so veiled the face of old Sol as to do away away with tlie effect of hit fiercer rays; sometime* a few showers hare fullen, and altogether the present summer it much more like a warm spring thin anything eW. The rainfall is onlj trifling, but the little there has been has vruh«d tlie dust off the thirsty grass from time to time, and kept the face of the country given. Truly we never experienced a milder lummer in th« Boniett district. Thin time hut year person* could wade aero** the Burnett at some parts by simply rolling up their trousers, but now it in barely'fordable on horseback at the sluillowest part. The coolness of the summer, and many showers and storms the district has been blessed with, fully explain this state of the river, which now affords some of the prettiest views imaginable from cert...
MARYBOROUGH. (From the Chronicle, January 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866
MARYBOROUGH. (From the Chronicle, January 24.) WE are having charming weather, so far as our pleasure is concerned—cool breezes con-&lt;*> stantly blowing from the south, never suffering the atmosphere to be heated above English English summer temperature, and pleasant showers every day, causing general vegetation, and deck ing nature in living green. But those who delve deep in the earth say they want heavier rain—* soaking rain. All the rain wo have had has not penetrated more than au inch or two* in the ground. It will be teen from a letter from the (Jovern meiit to the Municipal Council, published in another column, tliat the council has not the full control of the wharf reserve, save aud ex cept the portion of it reserved in front of Mr. Palmer's store, which the Government have reserved agreeably to a promise made to Mr. Palmer toon after separation. There is no question, therefore, of the right of the corpora tion to appoint an officer to collect the wharf due*. We...

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 23.

Glad were all concerned when the Rangatira, the last but not bast of the Gladstone regular trading fleet, made her appearance on Sundaj hut, for on Friday three steamers and the favorite cattle ship* the Kate Waters were all due, when a furious gale, with hazy weather, from the south-east, was blowing.
