New and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, February 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

New and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, February 6. THE arrival of the Cawarra, last night, supplying us with papers to February 6th, gives us the Brisbane Courier' s farewell to Mr. Herbert as Prime Minister. The parting, to all appearance, does not merit the appellation of " sweet sorrow." in any case, however, without going the length of endorsing with the infallible authority of my unqualified sanction the idea that any country is much the better for a revolution every twenty-four hours, I am still inclined to believe, in all seriousness, that frequent ministerial reconstructions—not entire changes—are very desirable and beneficial, and more especially in a country new to responsible government, because there people have to go on trial with each other before they can form any accurate opinion how they are likely to agree in a cabinet, whereas in a country like England, where the various shades of opinion of public men are well known, any man called upon to form a ministry can e...

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

THE NORTHERN TERRITORY. THE following letter addressed to a gentleman in Mount Gambier, from a correspondent in the Northern Territory, has been kindly handed to us for publication:— Camp, Escape Cliffs, October 9,1865. Dear Sir, —I hare no doubt but you are won dering what we are doing here. Well, we are playing the deuce —that is, with the public money. It is going, going, and I suppose that soon it will be ail gone. Then who is to pay the " piper." I suspect that you can form • good guess at it, but us poor devils here know nothing —absolutely nothing—and not onlj that, are not expected to behere our own eye*. But I must explain. A short time ago (I must refer to my journal for dates), that is the 12th August, we started with the Julia, accompanying the Beatrice, sur veying schooner, down the coast to the Vic toria Hirer. I hardly know what were our duties. But I suspect that we were a tender for the use of the Government Besident who sailed in the Beatrice, and after a hurried l...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 15. IN a previous letter I intimated, when Stone left his old ferry, that in a certain way consider-<*> able annoyance might be given to his opponent, or perhaps that annoyance might accrue to him- self, judging from such aa ill-selected place and position he was going to. So it appears that after shifting nearly all his buildings and stock in-trade, and rebuilding them on Mr. A. Beaton's land, and after clearing the scrub and going to considerable expense in making the approaches to the river, be is once more going to remove. It is said that " rolling stones gather no moss," bat let as hope in this roll the moss will stick to the stones, for certainly there has been rolling enough about for that problematic fellow. He is going about two miles still farther down tht> river, to land he ha* already arranged for from Mr. Wilhehn Buchbach, where he was strongly recommended to go before, but he could not be persuaded.

Shortly after, in company with the Police Magistrate, he started for the Condamine. The District Court will be opened at Condamine on or about the 27th instant, and at Dalby on the 9th March. HIGHWAY ROBBERY NEAR CONDAMINE.- Considerable excitement was occasioned in Con- damine on Sunday last, by a German, named Schultz, who had that day returned to town, stating that a man on horseback had-stuck him up near to Bimbian station, about eight miles from Condamine, and robbed him of £8. From what we can learn, it appears that Scbultz had left Condamine on the Sunday morning, ...

THE RENOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

THE RENOWN. The British barque Renown sailed from Deal on October 13, and then met with heavy wes- terly gales, which lasted until, she had passed Madeira on October 30. From that time she experienced calms and variable winds until she crossed the Equator on November 29, com- pletely missing the North-east Trades. Since crossing the line the passage has been favor- able, and the weather pleasant. She crossed the meridian of the Cape on December 29, and that of Hobart Town, Tasmania, January 31. Then she had steady southerly winds, and made Cape Moreton on February 7. The Renown brings a large general cargo, and six passengers. THE BAYSWATER.—This ship anchored in   Brisbane Roads on Tuesday night, having ar- rived at Cape Moreton on the previous evening.   She sailed from Keppel Bay on the 6th instant,   and next day fell in with a strong southerly gale. Since then she has had   remarkably fine weather, chiefly ligbt variable &...

TOOWOOMBA. (From the D.D. Gazette, of February 15.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 February 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (From the D.D. Gazette, of February 15.) TOOWOOMBA MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. —The result of the election of three aldermen to supply the places of those who retire by rotation, took place at the Town Hall, on Tuesday morning, at 9 o'clock. No person was present besides Alderman Groom, who was the Returning Officer, and the Town Clerk. Messrs. W. Fraser, J. Little and D. Grigg were declared to be duly elected. The Council was to have met yesterday at noon to elect a Mayor and for other purposes, but there was no quorum, the only members present being Aldermen Groom, Little, and Grigg. We trust that the aldermen in town will not neglect their duties when sum- moned for the next meeting, for it is necessary that the Executive Officer of the Corporation should be appointed at once, in order to make the required arrangements for the approaching general election in accordance with the division of the municipality into wards. GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIPS.—The following letter has been handed ...

TRADE PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

TRADE PROTECTION. Some little while ago, there was a great hubbub made by certain pure and dis-<*> interested individuals concerning the form-<*> ation of a "Trade Protection Society." Respectable merchants and tradesmen were inveigled into lending their names to the transaction, and a rather high-sounding sort of announcement was the result. Report states, however, —and we only give it as we hear it, without vouching for accuracy in every particular,—that, after the respect able persons aforesaid had seen through the designs of the pure and disinterested aforesaid, and had arrived at some notion of the grave responsibility they would incur, they backed out of the affair, and the "Trade Protection Society" became positively defunct. But we have a great many enterprising persons here just now, as sundry of our tradesmen and Mr. Picketing are able to testify, and an en* terprising person of the Paul Pry genus, hit upon the plan of carrying on the Trade Prot...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1866. IT has been said that the division of the offices of Lands and Works was a part of the Ministerial arrangements; that a pro-<*> position was to be made to the Legislative Assembly to vote the necessary funds for I another department, and that the manage ment of the public lands was to be removed from the present office and given to Mr. Douglas, who, at present, has not any portfolio. If such an intention really existed, the result of what is called " feel " ing the pulse" of honorable members has led to its abandonment. The Government evidently do not believe that the House would agree to vote the salaries and inci dentals inseparable from the establishment of an additional department, and they are prepared to put in practice any little ideas of economy which seem likely to be forced upon them. la order to do away with the useless anomaly of a cabinet minister with nothing to do bat to lead the Upper House, and no salary a...

FENIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

FENIANISM. OUR Sydney correspondent, in referring to that present exciting subject, says:- I give you a passage from a letter addressed from New York from "A True Friend of Ire- land," giving the following account of the re doubtable "Colonel O'Mahony," the "Head Centre 1' and President of the association in Hew York — premising that O'Mahony, a farmer's son in Ireland, was one of those who, M Thackeray said, " out his stick" in '48, and , finally got to America:— " In 1857 or 1858* some young man belonging to a secret organisation in the South of Ireland, called the Phoenix Society were arrested. An appeal waa made by Messrs. O'Mahony, Deheny, and Co., in the Irish papers in America, for funds to aid in their defence. Quite a large sum was raised, but not one cent was transmitted to Ireland for the object for which it was collected. The funds were devoted to establishing a society and publishing a news* caper, both named after the organisation in Ireland— The Phoenix. " The Tile sh...

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART I. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART I. AND still, my friend, you think that I do wrong In this proscribing—for myself at least—<*> The draught of Custom!. Listen, and I'll tell. For many years I led a singular life— (If life that can be call'd that craves for joy Utter extinction of the nobler germ); A burden to myself and all around, If not to one, who, even at my worst, Spoke naught but kindness; till at length one night, In accents feebler still than was her wont, She breath'd my name, and in the morn was dead. (Who speaks waa surely, sir, a matricide, Albeit the world recorded not his crime!) —Well, that one dead, I might myself have died, So strange a vacuum was the world!... None now To intercept my life from utter woe; To whisper hope, all shatter'd as I wae; To send me solace from her own scathed heart, In words most tragic for their reticence; To forward me, wherever I might be, That fragrant linen, white as driven snow, As if I had been e'er her duteous bo...
