THE STOLEN LETTER. A LAWYER'S STORY. [CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

THE STOLEN LETTER. A LAWYER'S STORY. [CONCLUDED.] I NOW saw my road clear before me—not very far on, but still clear. I had housed the letter, in all probability for that night, at the Gatliffe Arms. After tipping Tom, I gave him direc- tions to plaj about the door of the inn, and re* fresh himself when he was tired at the tart-shop* opposite, eating as much, as he pleased, on the understanding that he crammed all the time with his eye on the window. If Mr. Darager went out, or Mr. Darager's friend called on him, Tom was to let me know. He was also to take a little note from me to the head chamber* maid, an old friend of mine, asking her to step orer to my office, on a private matter of business, as soon as her work was done for that night. After settling these little matters, haying half* an-hourto spare, I turned to and did myself a bloater at the office-fire, and had a drop of gin and water hot, and felt oomparatiTely happy. When the head chambermaid came, it turned out, as good ...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER VI. JOB THE LAST TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER VI. JOB THE LAST TIME. BY CAPTIAN JAMES GRANT. MR. SCRIVEN BASSET had made all his ar-<*> rangement, for departing to his legal charge in the distant Isle of France. He had secured passages for himself, his two daughters, and an old and valued servant, Nance, or, as she was more frequently termed, Nurse Folgate, in the Hermione, a fine ship of five hundred tons burden, which was advertised to ■ail from the London Docks in fourteen days from the time we now write of. Meanwhile, poor Morley resolved to make the most of the present, and endeavored to shut his eyes to the future; but while striving to be | blindfolded, he knew that this future, with all its separation and sorrow, its fears, and, alas! its doubts,must ensue. There were times when Morley thought of j asking Ethel to bind herself to him in writing; bat he soon thrust the idea aside as mistrusting and melodramatic. There were other occasions when he actually thought of impl...

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. I. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. WHEN quite a girl I was accustomed to culti-<*> vate silkworms, much to the annoyance of a very amiable but indulgent parent, who appeared to object to my little favorites crawling over the window blinds of the room appropriated to their culture. The passion, which possessed me in my youthful days, has acquired strength and intensity from time; and erer since my arrival in Australia I have been animated by an incessant desire to acquire distinction as a sen cuUuriftt; but it was not until the year 1860 that I was enabled to devote my attention to this interesting pursuit, when I purchased from a Mr. Ifacdonald, then resident in Burke-street, East Melbourne, thirteen silkworms for twelve shillings. In the following year I procured a lew eggs from a Mr. Jackson, of the department of public lands, and likewise a small quantity from Dr. Mueller, the indefatigable and respected curator of the Melbourne Botanical Gardens...

MUSCULAR EXERCISES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

MUSCULAR EXERCISES. IN his speech at the opening of the Liverpool Gymnasium Lord Stanley entered upon what may be termed, without exaggeration, almost the most important subject which can engage the attention of Englishmen. The people of this country pride themselves upon being ad* dieted to many sports, to those athletic exercisef which maintain a healthy body and a healthy mind within it. It is a fitting matter for satis* faction, and no one will doubt that it rest* on a true national instinct who hat ever teen aa English school or University. The boys or men are using their muscles at every hoar they can spare from graver pursuits, and most o* them contrire so to spare the greater part of the day all the year round. They do not re quire to be told to develope their bodily powers; they are, indeed, inclined rather to forget that educational institutions hare any other purposes than to bring together active fellows from among whom " eights" *mfl " eleTens" may be chosen.

THE CHARGE AGAINST GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIPS. AN inquiry was held on Tuesday, before the Immigration Board, into certain charges pre- ferred by the passengers of the German ship La Rochelle against the captain, the ground of the complaints being principally a want of pro- visions and accommodation. Evidence was also taken as to an alleged improper communication having taken place between the Platypus, s., and the La Rochelle before the latter was passed by the Health Officer. The members of the board present were Mr. F. O. Darvall, chair- man, the Immigration agent, and Dr. Temple. The first witness examined was Dr. Purdie, the Health Officer, who said: The ship La Rochelle arrived on the 25th December last; I boarded her and examined the passengers; it seemed to me a doubtful case ; the ship was placed in quarantine by proclamation; I next visited her at the anchorage in the Platypus, steamer; I asked if there was fever on board, and the doctor replied, "No, nothing infectious;" &a...

Commercial Intelligence. COMMERCIAL. QUEENSLANDER OFFICE, Friday Evening. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

Commercial Intelligence. COMMERCIAL. QUEENSLANDER OFFICE, Friday Evening. SINCE last week there is very little change in the aspect of the markets, and we cannot quote a single change of consequence. Business is dull, chiefly from the limited stocks of most articles of produce. Old maize is scarce and dear, and most samples of new are too green for use. Onions are scarce, and so are potatoes, and the small quantities to hand are greedily bought up, but the range of prices varies so much that it is impossible to give any more than a nominal quotation. Hay is plentiful, and sales are effected at lasi week's rates. Flour is easier in price, but it is still quoted at previous rates—£2B for Adelaide best brands. Our Ipswich contemporary states that the roads to the Downs arc at present in excellent condition, and, as a consequence, the rates of carriage rule low. During the last month two wool ships have ■ailed from this port for London, with full car goes. They are the third and fourth ...

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

ROCKAMPTON. WE are in receipt of files from Rockhampton to the 7th instant. The Northern Argus of that date states, in reference to the Sandy Cape lighthouse:— There can be no doubt that when the Govern ment determined to place a light upon the ex treme point of Fraier's Island, that they availed themselves of what they considered the best advice to be had upon the subject, and we are satisfied spared neither trouble nor expense in pursuit of the necessary information as to what would really be the best site for the light house. That they should be mistaken in their estimate of the correct locality is to be deplored, as also the obstinacy with which they cling to the opinion of Lieutonont Heath, who, what ever his professional intelligence, we still maintain cannot pretend to a tithe of that prac tical experience which the masters of either onr steamers or coasters possess, one and all of whom loudly continue to con demn the action taken by the Government in the matter.
