QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 17 April 1860

QUEENSLAND. 1 We :have received.', a : North Australian of April 3. ' ? "/The m-its for the election-of mem- bers to the New Legislature had been Teceived from Sydney, the/Whole being made returnable by the loth May, so that the new Colony will \soon com- mence its governing career. The .'new Colony already possesses four p'ort3 of entry or future centres of -trade aud progress-Moreton Bay, Wide ''Bay, Port Curtis, and Rock .hiimptqn."These will shortly each hold direct communication with the mother country, and receive an infusion of new blood at such places as may^ require it. In all New South Wales, Sydney alone is the centre of attraction to trade' and population, andiwc cannot wonder, that as a consequence the extremities.of thc Colony are disregarded and overlooked. An attempt is being made to form a Rifle.Corps at Brisbane and Ipswich. . The paper is full of addresses from would be Legislators.

WIT AND HUMOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser — 17 April 1860

,.;íwrr AND HUMOUR. . EATING FAST.---Napoleon;'was a very > fast-eater. At a grand concert at the Tuilleries, from the moment he had his guests sat; down till the coffee was , '«erved, not more than 'forty-three or for- ty four minutes elapsed. They were then bowed out. With Napoleon, the moment appetite was felt, it was neces- sary that it should he satisfied : and his establishment was so arranged that mall iplàces, and that all hours, chickens, 'cutlets, and coffee might be forthcoming at a word. This habit of. eating fast' . and carelessly, is ' supposed to have paralysed Napoleon on two of the most critical events of his life, the battle of Borodino and Leipsic, which he might have;converted into decisive and in : iiucntial ¡victories, by pursuing : his advantages as was his wont. On each of these occasions, he is known - to have been suffering .from indigestion'.: On.th'e À third 'day of Dresden, .too, the .

No sentiments. were expressed at all hostile to the Government : the tenor of the speeches, on the contrary, being of a very peaceable nature. All that seemed to be desired by the speakers was a division and demarcation of the races-the Pakehas not interfer- ing with thc Maories, or their Govern- ment ; and they, likewise, not inter- fering with the Pakehas.

: THE RIOT AT- MAITLAND. 1. (From Ihè Empire, April 3.) Vfja have been informed by a gentle- man,, who was in Maitland at the time of the riot on Thursday night, that the affair was a much more serious one than the account, in a local journal-thc Mercury-represents it. The violence and excitement of the mob were ex- treme j and it is really extraordinary that no lives were lost. Several . per- sons escaped almost miraculously. Mr. Pierce, the miller, who had rendered himself particularly obnoxious to the ? riotera by having consented to take thc chair on the occasion, had a very nar- row escape, and is probably indebted 1 for, tho preservation of his life to the courageous interference of Mr. Dec, who being a Roman Catholic had much more influence with the mob than any person no£ of that persuasion could have had. He deserves'nll praise for thewayJn which he exerted himself to prevent injury io Mr. Pierce. .-\ Mrs. .Warland, (widow of "the' late W. ¡H. Warland, Esq.,) who was j stop...

Unless a sufficient sum is offered for "the : various prizes, we; may depend upon it that Wnly " scrubbers,' will come to thc cali,/and thus the object of the annual, gatherings is entirely lost, through the hanging back of .those who are most interested in the resuhy.

A Kio GRANDE correspondent of the Texas Ranchero gives an account of the torturing and burning of an inoffcn sive woman, named Alanis/in Gamargo, by a pai-tyof men, who were actuated by a belief that she had bewitched an American'citizen named Ratfnerez with; a horrible disease. In Arkansas, in the township of Ex- tra, a widow, named Hill, and n slave woman belonging to a Mr.. J.'L. M had heen murdered, and. .the house burned to conceal the deed. An inves- tigation resulted in suspicion falling on a slave named Ike, who denied any' knowledge of the affair. Mr. M. then poured on Wa back spirits of turpentine and set it oh fire. Ike then confessed that he and a negro named Jack were hired by one Mill to assist in perform- ing the deed. Jack was arrested, and thc two slaves were chained to stakes; a> quantity of fat pine was piled around them, and Mr. J. L. M--> set it on fire.
