FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
FRANCE. The marriage of the Princess Anna Murat with the Duke de Monchie was cele-&lt;*> brated on December 18. M. Fould's financial statement was fa- vorably received, owing to a reduction which has been composed from the curtail* ments of the following expenses:—Minister of War, 14,000,000 fanes ; Minister of Marine, 5,(XX),000 francs ; Finance, 6,000,000 francs; Public Works and Em peror's Household, 3,000,000 francs. The French national debt now, is only 773,000,000 francs, whereas on July 1, it was 808,000,000. The policy of the Emperor, as declared by him, is strongly in favor of peaceful relations with other continental powers.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
AMERICA. Mr. Jefferson Davis continues to enjoy good health. He is still at Fortress Munroe, and nothing definite has been stated in reference to his trial. It is considered that the American Consul having reoeived the Shenandoah from the British Government precludes the FeJeraj Government from lodging any complaint against the British authorities for discharg ing the crew. There are no prospects of the friendly relations which now exist between America, Eugland, and France being disturbed. A Committee has been appointed to decide the chums of the Southern repre sentatives to seats in the Congress. The Fenians have of late been very active, and shown signs of disrup tion between themselves. President Mahoney has been deposed, and in his place W. R. Roberts was elected. A bill has been introduced into the Senate for the purpose of paying to the widow of the late President Lincoln the sum of 100,000 dollars. Money is much easier. Gold is quoted at 147. The|public journals of New York ...
COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
COMMERCIAL. Discounts are quoted at 6 per cent., and there is a fair supply of money in the market. For loan at short dates only 5½ is asked. There is a tendency towards greater firmness in the funds. Consols are quoted at 87f and 87g. The cotton market shows a steadiness it has not exhibited for a long time past. Prices remain unchanged, and there is an ! upward tendency. Government Securitikp.—New South Wales, 100 to 102. Victoria, 104| to 105|. Queensland, 102J to 103|. Wool.—The prices quoted at the sales forwarded by the last mail have been well maintained, especially for full bodied and good combing. In them there has been an advance of two-pence on the September prices. The total quantity catalogued is only C 0.287 bales. The foreign buyers were somewhai shy at first, and would not bid, but bought freely afterwards. The market is now, with the exception of the wool received after the sales, quite bare; indeed, it is more so than lias been the case for many years past. The tot...
FROM MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
FROM MEXICO. New York, December 11.—The Herald's Washington special says the evacuation of Chihuahua by the French is fully confirmed by an official letter just received from the United States Consul at that city. This morement of the French is construed to mean that their commander has abandoned the attempt at holding frontier States in dose subjection to the Imperial Gorernment until the army is materially increased by foreign enlistments. The Mexican Legation at Washington hare also news to the same effect. Their sanguine inter pretation of this is that it is Maximilian's in tention to send them back to France.
AMERICAN AFFAIRS. NEWS TO THE 13th DECEMBER. QUARRELS AMONGST THE FENIANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
AMERICAN AFFAIRS. NEWS TO THE 13th DECEMBER. QUARRELS AMONGST THE FENIANS. BY way of California, we (Sydney Em-&lt;*> pire) have news from the Atlantic States of America to the 13th December, being eight days later than the intelligence in oar issue of Friday last. We compile the ' following from the telegrams in the Alia California and the American Flag, of San Francisco:— Washington, December B.—The Indian tribes that made the recent attack on the overland route are believed to be that branch of the Chevennes and Arraphoes which were driven forth to the Platte Rirer, after the Chivington mssasrre. Last autumn, when the Commis sioners were on the plains, they were informed that these Indians had sent messengers to nego tiate for peace. It is supposed that these mes sengers were attacked and driven back by our forces, ignorant of their mission, and that the recent attacks are in retaliation. Information has been recetred at the department of the in terior, that shows that...
NEW ZEALAND. ESCAPE OF 53 MAOBI PRISONERS FROM THE HULK MANUKAU-SIX DEAD BODIES RECOVERED. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
NEW ZEALAND. ESCAPE OF 53 MAOBI PRISONERS FROM THE HULK MANUKAU-SIX DEAD BODIES RECOVERED. THE Maori prisoners at Wellington have settled the question for themselves as to what shall be done with them, by bolting as their fellow rebels in similar circum- stances did from the Kawau. They have, however, been less fortunate in their es cape, seven dead bodies having already been discovered, and, doubtless, many others have paid the same penalty for their misdeeds. An inquest has since been held upon the bodies recovered, and a verdict of accidental death returned. There is one comfort in this matter of the Wellington escape, that—unlike that from the Kawau —the only bad result that can accrue is the loss of so many prisoners. Probably one third of those who left the ship will have perished in the attempt, and the afiair will be a matter of depression rather than of exultation to the rebels now in arms. We give the following extracts from copies of the Wellington Advertiser, of the 22nd...

DESIGNS FOR THE BRISBANE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
DESIGNS FOR THE BRISBANE MARKET. IN making an examination of the designs submitted, and helping our readers to form a judgment on their respective merits, we think it will be but fair to the authors to give publicity to the particulars they re ceived from the committee for their guidance. We therefore print the committee's instructions in extenso, whence it will be seen what the architects really had to do, and also the amount of margin left for the exercise of their skill and taste* and our readers, after looking at the drawings, will be thus better able to judge how far these instructions have been followed. It has been said that the whole of these designs must be rejected on account of their great cost; but the committee having omitted to name any sum as their intended expenditure, the architects were absolved from paying any attention to that particu lar point, beyond that which they share in common with their fellow-citizens, that the building which answers the purpose at the c...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. ON the subject of pleuro-pneumonia, which we are sorry to learn has been discovered to ex-&lt;*> ist in several places near the metropolis, the following communication, signed "Sylvanus," has been tent to the Courier, The " demon of dise—s" which you speak of, •talked ortr oar border* more than two yean ago. We know exactly how it commenced, how it grew, and how it diminished. It has been most virulent in the track of the orerlanders. Commencing near Taroom, it has extended right into the heart of the Kennedy district. The police district of Gladstone and the pas toral districts of Wide Bay and Burnett seem to hare escaped. Moreton (East and West) hare been rery slightly touched, and we hear nothing of it on the Downs. Bnt the losses in the Leichhardt, Port Curtis, and Kennedy dis tricts hare been heary. I should not estimate them at under 20,000 head. The plague spent its force in the first six months of 1864—and the danger from pleuro is now past, I wo...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866
The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1866. THE English mails, by the P. and O. Steam Navigation Company's boat, arrived at Melbourne on Tuesday evening, bring-&lt;*> ing telegraphic news from London up to the 6th of January. With the usual irre gularity of the Company's steamers, the mail is again behind time. The letters oannot be delivered in Brisbane till lion day, while the outgoing mail was closed last night, and leaves early this morning. Our merchants are thus again put to the serious inconvenience of being unable to answer their despatches by return mail; and that numerous class of persons who keep up a family correspondence with those whom they have but lately left, are again unnecessarily subjected to the annoyance of having to write to their friends imme diately before receiving their anxiously expected letters. The English news, as published in our telegram, is generally of a satisfactory nature, being more pacific in character than for some time past. The...
