BRISBANE. Wednesday, October 30th. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 1 November 1861
BRISBAK?E. PFROM 0O010 na eOnrRli'oDNnEsr.J Wedn-sdar, October 30th. The great topic of the cly i , Bris?lane,. is the opening of the Queensland Ezxhibition, which tool; pl:ace yesterday. The Immigrants' Barrack was crowledl with the favoured persons who received tickets of admission to witness tlhe ceremony, and the beauty and fashion of Brisbane mustered strong. l'lhe prominent features of the Exhibition were the splendid collection of colonial woods exhibited by Mr. W. Hill, the curator of the Botanic Gardens; the several samples of arrowroot, and the numerous specimens of cotton of several varieties, but all of very superior quality. An American gentleman, to whom I was speaking, and who had .been a cotton grower himself, was quite in raptures at the excel lence of the samples. He declared it as his decided opinion, that Queensland must become a great cotton producing country before long. It has been a matter of much surprise that the display was so meagre of our staple products...

THE PRIMARY NATIONAL SCHOOL. (To the Editor of the Queensland Times.) [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 1 November 1861
THE PRIidAY hNATIONAL SCIOOL. (To tke Editor of the Queensland Times.) SrR,-Y'our correspondent, "Oneof the late Provis ional Committee," has again thrown his.hat into'the riug. It seems as if he were a little inebriated this time, if we may judge of the number of " sies" in his production. He has sadly mistaken the identity of his opponent however; not that this circumstance has muoth to do with the matter; but if the truth must be told, our paternal ancestor was an extensive cultivator of the soil (close upon three acres) near Ballinasloe, and conse quently we had rare opportunities of acquairig know ledge in the pig and potato business, as well as of watch ing the rise, progress, and eventual triumph of the Nationnl School system in Ireland. Our subsequent career in the great metropolis as a peripatetic vendor of "ingions," made nous familiar with every court and alley of the "great wen," from Seven Dials to Ratcliffe Highway, so that we may be said to have seen something of the ...

To tse Edktr of te oaseent&ad Tires. Snm--Twn letters signed" One of the late Provisional Committee," Ihave appeared, attacking the Board of Local Patrons of the Primary SchooL The first of these letters I wrote a reply to, but learn ing, to my astonishment, the supposed author, I sup pseseed it. One part I have, however, preserved. It was in allusion to a charge made by your correspondent of an attempt to dwarf the National system by a section of the local board, and in reference to which he asked "Is it manly P is it honestP" sad I took occasion to referto the general lesson to be found at p. 19 of the dgunlations adopted by the General Board of Education, and recommended him, "when found, to make a note of it," particularly that part about "quarrelling with our neighbours and alosing them." At the risk of being thought presumptuous, I must my I still think that passage of my intended letter is a proper mode of deal ing with any effusion written in your correspondent's fer...

lLoeal anb Diwtrict Nfes, Tan WaTraER.-The last three days haere been very eultry, and each night there has been a great amount of electricityin the atmnosphere. On Tlesday night there was a heavy lshower of rain about i0 o'clock, with thunder and lightning at intervals. On Wednesday evening there was a very heavy storm, the faslhes of lightning being exceedingly vivid,and the peals of thunder which instantly followed indicating that the storm-cloud weas immediately over the town. The only aecident which we have heard of in connection with this storm weasthesltrikingofa cabinet-makefs shop situate in a tight-of-way offiEst-street. It appears that the electric -urreat was attracted -by a bar of iron which cated against the building, and, after tearing off a few shingles fromthe roof, descended by the iron rod to the gronnd. Those who were in the adjoining premises where some what frightened by the shocls, whicb they describe as very severe, and feel grateful that they escaped so narr...

FATTORINI & COS. STOCK, STATION, AfD PRODUCE CIRCULAR. Since the publication of our last circular two ships have been laid on for London direct, one -by an Ipswich Brm and another by a Brisbane house We have no doubt that our friends will see that it is to their advantage to avail themselves of these opportunities, rather than continue to ship by way of Sydney. We are prepared tonegociate for advances, and effect insurance and other arrangements, on terms which we believe will be fiound far more advantageous than can possibly be oltinmeil through Sydney houses. The opening of the Queensland Exhibition in Brisbane is an event whicr we consider worthy of notice in our circular, as it evidences the attention which is now being paid to the conltivation of new products; cotton, arrow root, tobaeco, coffee, pepper, rice, maize, wheat, and barley, each having a place in theexhibition, and affording proof that erae long they will occupy an important place in the commerce of this col...

THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE NAVIGATION OF THE RIVER BREMER. III. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 1 November 1861
THE IMPROVEMENT OF HE? NA5VIOATION OF .THE RIVER BREMER. III. We thirilk no apology due to our .readers-for rnaain drawing-their attention to this -subject. Thle journals cofthis town have both spoken in lfavour of an unrdertaking havingfor its object rthe improvement of the river Bremer, and for -obtaining increased facilities for thetrade of-the htown. The Courier has signified its approval of the atlempt. It has, however, been -reserved for the Guardian to settle the-whole matter, by such an exhibition of profound knowledge If the matter, that we feel satiaied, that the -people of Ipswich will at once bow -with sub k.mission to the Delphic oracle:; and feel :tlholoured-that the people of Brisbane will con descend to transact that business which might be more advantageously conducted at.theirown -doors under altered circumstances. The Guardian says : The idea seems to be abandoned that at one time was ireely expressed, bothl in Parliament andthrouaagh the Press; tlatIpswich was, o...

NEW ZEALAND. THE OTAGO GOLD FIELDS. (From the New Zealand Government Gazette.) PUBLIC NOTICE. -Thi largely inr.reasing immi gratiou to this Province from the adjacent colonies, notwithstanding tile appearance both in Australia and in Dunedin, of such accounts of the gold-field as should have induced intending immigrants to act with greater caution, and to await the fuller devel opment both of the character and extent of the Otago Gold-field, makes it imperative on the part of Government, as they are anxious to prevent the in evitable consequences of so injudicious a move ment, to come forward with an authoritive declara tion. The Government cannot doubt .of the existence of a valuable Gold-field, of considerable extent, cnapable ol affording remunerative wages to a large population, but they desire that it should be known that, owing to a scarcity of wood for fuel and for slhbbing purposes in many localities, considerable difficulties and expenses will have to be encountered in the ...
HISTORIC FACTS CONNECTED WITH THE ORIGIN OF MERINO SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 1 November 1861
HISTORIC FACTS CONNECTED WITH THE ORIGIN ,OF MERINO SHEEP. (lwn IPls'Fhriend :of tA' People.) IT is pretty generally known, thatat the com r'ence ment of the present century,.and long, before, he mnnufacturers of the finer descriptions of woollen cloths obtained their raw material from the fleeces of a breeod of Spanish, sheep called ..Merinos. Attempts were made to introduce these animals into other countries-attempts, in E:ngland. and lFrance, attended with very limited suceess'; whilst. in Saxony, and later, but more decidedly, in our own' Australian colonies, results, much more favour able, have been obtained. Somp obscurity hangs over the sog.fi sidd the progress of this interesting and 'nost pisefl variety of the ovine race; and few persons, perhps, in this country have a distinct idea.of the meaning of the term merino. It suficiently eppears that this-. bred. oL4beop was originally introduced into Spails from England; but some misapprehension has arisen with respect to the pr...
