GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 7. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 7. THE municipal elections came to a very satis-<*> factory termination yesterday; more than ordi-<*> nary interest was taken in the proceedings, the whole council being present to meet their con- stituents. It had been imagined it would be a quiet walk over for the two retiring aldermen, but before 12 four good men and true w»tj entered for the Hats. Punctually at 12 o'clock, the Mayor commenced the opening process, when Mr. John S. Power was duly nominated as a fit and proper person to fill the office cf alderman; then Mr. William Pershousc was duly nominuted, also Mr. Richard Hethering ton; after which came Mr. Samuel W.

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, January 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, January 27.) THE gradual clearing up of the weather in the early part of the week was noticed by per-<*> sons interested in mining pursuits, with sensa-<*> tions the reverse of pleasant. There is not pleasant. much caute for alarm as yet, teeing that severe floods almost invisibly occur in February or March, but the possibility of this summer pas* •ing without copious general rains, naturally ftives rise to some anxiety. The squatters on Peak Downs are now complaining of the exces sive luxuriance of the grass, sheep being scarcely visible ia its midst, and a few weeks without rain is much wished for by them. It appears that the weather will never suit every one, and therefore we may be thankful thmt whether it rain or shine, somebody must reap the advantage. The Port Mackay mail, due on Monday last, has not yet made its appearance. The Belyando mail left with the Beaufort office stores on stores on Saturday last, a...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

VICTORIA. WE (Melbourne Argus) have been requested to state that further information has been re-<*> ceived in town respecting the death (recently reported) of one of the members of the Leich- hardt search party, showing that it is not to be regarded as a consequence of the privations endured by the party in their journey from the depot to Cooper's Creek. He was not then (we are informed) in their company, having long before been left behind at a settler's station, on account of illness. A new steamer, called the Geelong, is about to be employed by the Peninsular and Oriental Company in maintaining monthly steam com munication between Australia and Europe. The new vessel, which has been built on the Clyde, is a sister ship to the City of York, and she is now on her way out to Galle.— lbid.

County Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 15. THIS district has, during the past week, been visited with a plague of caterpillars, the number of which are so great as to exceed belief. Where they come from no one knows, they having appeared at the same time on most of the farms on the Brisbane side of Oxley Creek. They are of light green color, and do not appear to be the same as those which were so numerous at the spring of the year. Those were darker in color and rather stouter in their proportions. There is also a difference in the food they select, the present ones eating only grass and plant* of like nature as corn and sorghum, while those in the spring ate every thing which came in their way, and were par ticuUry fond of the lucerne and the potatoes. The present ones hare passed through pieces of lucerne, cabbage, sweet potatoes, Ac., and hare not touchel them, while the small bits of summer grass in them hare been entirely denuded of their leave...

IPSWICH MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

IPSWICH MUNICIPAL ELECTION. The polling for the election of Aldermen to sit in the Municipal Council of Ipswich com-<*> menced at 9 o'clock yesterday morning, and closed at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, when the voting papers showed that Messrs. James Foote, Charles Watkins, and Henry Caleb Wil liams were duly elected. The polling was con ducted with a degree of spirit which argued the commendable interest taken in the election, and, although there was a large body of elec tors congregated round the Council chambers and the neighboring hotels, the business of the day was carried on with order and decorum. On the result of the poll being made known, there were one or two free fight* between some of die more enthusiastic partisans; but these little affair* must be viewed with a charitable eye in the heat of electioneering. It is understood that the newly-elected aldermen are favorable to the retention of Mr. Murphy in the Mayoral chair, and if such is the case, opposition ...

DRAYTON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 14. OUR local politicians have been for the past few days under the influence of extreme excite-<*> ment, the civic body being in a state of transi-<*> tion from the old regime to that of representa- representa tion by wards. The proclamation has been pub lished, and the day of nomination for three al dermen to represent each of the \rards, has been fixed for Friday, February 23rd instant.

LEYBURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

LEYBURN. THERE has a circumstance occurred lately which would seem to lead to the supposition either that the creek here contains some fish of enormous size, or that the "bunyip" which would appear, for tome years past, to hare retired from public life, has again made his appearance upon the stage. Some few days ago a resident wes recreating himself by fishing, and haying cast in bis line and fastened the end thereof to a stake, sat down to meditate (like a true disciple of Isaac Walton). His meditations were disturbed by obserring that his line was being powerfully operated upon. Immediately seizing it, hs attempted to land his fish, but to hit great sur prise, uot to say disgust, found that instead of landing the fish, the fish was likely to water him; he manfully stuck his hock into the clay/ and lying back pulled with might and main, but the fish pulled still stronger, and to save him self from walking into a deep hole, which, as he cannot swim, might hare been iaconrenient, he ...

THE JOHAN CESAR. THE Hamburg barque, Johan Cesar, sailed from the Elbe on October 12, and immediately after sailing fell in with very rough weather, which continued until she was clear of the Bay of Biscay. During a violent gale in the Bar of Biscay the carpenter was washed overboard and drowned by a heavy sea which broke on board. Subsequently she had moderate and fine weather nearly the whole of the passage.

WHAT THE COLONIES ARE DOING. (From the Daily Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

WHAT THE COLONIES ARE DOING. (From the Daily Telegraph.) "THREE thousand ducats; 'tis a good round sum!" says the Venetian money lender. A million acres; the figures are of some consequence even in the wonderful statistics of British dominion. They represent a tract of land as large as a good sized English county; and, as our last territorial investment, they are certainly worth a moment's attention. When Bishop Colenso, after all his troubles, returns to his diocese, he will find it larger by a twelfth part than when he left it; present ing, of course, a correspondingly larger field for missionary effort, as well as for that industrial and commercial energy which is in these unromantic days the best pioneer of Christianity itself! We shall probably not be conveying any very distinct idea to the majority of onr readers when we. inform them that the southern boundary of Natalfe no longer the Unudnkulu, but the Umtdnpana. Being interpreted, however, the announcement means that we have...

LAWYERS' LOGIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

LAWYERS' LOGIC. THAT once proverbial type of the woolsack genus, Lord Chancellor Eldon, is reported to have commenced a certain judgment by ob-<*> serving that the cause had been before him for seventeen yean, and, therefore, it would be unnecessary to postpone hit decision. For seventeen long Tears the weary Miton had waited, and the legal oracle had remained dumb. Those were the days when the Court of Chancery broke hearts, and made men commit suicide, or drove them mad. It U not a perfect tribunal eren now; but, at least, it is no longer chargeable with offences against justice, so abominable that we wonder at the patience of oar fathers in enduring them. The vast improve ments in the praotioe of equity effected in modern times, and especially the grand funda mental reform of 1888, have rendered obsolete the worst of those abuses which, in Lord Bldon's time, made Chancery a mere byword— a popular metaphor for pitiless and prolonged cruelty. In 1852 the ancient monst...

A SKETCH IN NAPLES. ON Thursday night there was excitement in this city such as had not been expe-<*> rienced since the last fighting took place in its streets. About half-past 9 o'clock lightning, the mart vivid I hare ever Men, began to flash through the sky and down to the very ground, fllnminating the whole town with a blue light at intervals of a few seconds. Loud thunder and torrents of rain accompanied the lightning. The rain drove everybody indoors; bat the illumina tion was so brilliant that it was watched from every window, so that the entire city was all astir, when suddenly, at about half past 10, the report of a cannon was heard, and immediately after fire was seen to rise as if from the bay, and to make the mountains on the other side, and even Caprera, distinctly visible from most points in the city. Higher and higher it rose, and wider it spread, till it seemed to cover half Naples. It was a red pink, and as the lightning flashed through it, and the thu...
