Country Intelligence. THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

Country Intelligence. THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 22. HARVEST operations are being busily for-<*> warded in the early maize, mostly scrub, and as far as can be seen there is but little difference in the yield, which may possibly be on the lighter side, from last year's production. There if a good home consumption of maize this sea son on the river, owing to the high figure *>«1 indifferent quality of imported flour. There are already several hand-mills that are being freely used in grinding this excellent substitute for floor ; and judging from the success of wheat in an unfavorable season, we may reasonably expect next year's crop of wheat to make a great start towards our agricultural population supporting themselres as regards bread, which is admitted on all hands to be the greatest expense new settlers hare to contend with. I hear of seTeral that are going in for wheat cultivation. Cotton and sugar may be talked of as being highly re munera...

The Ipswich Hospital has now nearly sixty imnatse, a-great number of whom are bad fever patients, and fresh oases are daily occurring in various parts of the town.

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) SINCE my last advices we have had a succes-<*> sion of fine steady showers, with a fair pros-<*> pect of their continuation. The sir has been somewhat warm, but we have the consolation that we are seldom, if erer, without a breese. The rains will be most beneficial in the neigh borhood of the town, where feed is rery abort; but away on the reserres the grass is almost everywhere abundant. I, yesterday, walked ovtr some seven miles of surveyed country, where the grass is as green as a leek, and from fifteen to eighteen inches bifh—not the coarse reedy looking grass, which is the characteristic of many localities, but that fine, dose-growing kindjabnost similar to KnfUsh pasturage, sag* gestire of hearty feed and milk-producing qualities. The fencing on the new reserve is progressing rapidly, and I know two or three proprietors who anticipate getting in some twenty acres each of oats during the coming month of March....

DIED IN THE WORKHOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

DIED IN THE WORKHOUSE. A few days ago then died in one of the work houses in Manchester a daring character named Isaac Robinson, said to be a native of Shap. At one time he acted as a guide to the summits of Helvellyn, Skiddaw, and other mountains, often to craigs, fastnesses, and gulleys which had never before been penetrated by man. On more than one occasion he was hired to proceed at midnight in search of excursionists who had been lost in the mist, and he rarely returned without bringingsafely home thosewhowereabout to perish through cold and hunger. A few days later he was noted all over Cumberland and Westmoreland as one of the first wrestlers of the day. During a portion of this time, too, he acted as under-gamekeeper, and along with others was engaged in a terrible affray with poachers on the preserves of the Earl of Lons dale, near Lowther Castle. In this encounter he seized two poachers and held them, and at the nine time two guns wore fired at him by others of the gang. T...

A KERRY "ENGAGEMENT" AND ITS BREACH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

A KERRY "ENGAGEMENT" AND ITS BREACH. A breach of promise of marriage ease has just been tried in the Court of Common Pleas, Dublin, before Chief Justice Monahan and a special jury. The plaintiff. Miss Rowena Chute, is the daughter of a physician, who died some' yean ago, and who possessed an income of about £1000 a year, which enabled him to mix in the beat society. She ia a remarkably handsome and accomplished lady, about 23 years of age, and one of the acknowledged belles of Kerry—a portionless one, however, for a sun oi £1000, to which she was entitled, was charged on some property which, baring been sold in the Landed Estates Court, did not pro duce enough to defray the incumbrances on it. The defendant, John de Bowley Bletmerhassett, is the son of the Her. William Blennerhassett, the second head of the family. He is about 32 years of age, has serred in the army, and now holds the commission of the peace. He generally resided with one ' or other of two old bachelor uncles, who j...

The Farm & the Garden. OPERATIONS FOR MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

The Farm & the Garden. OPERATIONS FOR MARCH. As the month of March advances, we may reasonably expect cooler weather than during the last two months. Summer ends on the 20th, and should enough rain fall before that period to thoroughly saturate the ground, a fine grow ing season of three or four months' duration may be looked for. From Pugk't Almanac—% careful authority—we learn that "In 1864, severe gales and heavy floods occurred in this month ; but in 1865 the weather was unceas ingly fine, rain falling on two days only." The farmer or gardener can base rery little, there fore, on the corresponding months of the last two years: he most be guided rather by occurring events. The rain, light though it was, has enabled us to get through a pood deal of work, and present indications are that we will have a good planting and sowing month in March. Some farmers, especially those within direct range of the tea breezes, consider the second week of March the right time to get in a w...

MEAT PRESERVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

MEAT PRESERVING. IN the Queensland Times we find the following; terse description of the meat-curing establish-<*> ment of Mr. Davis, at Town Marie, Bremer River:— We alluded some time ago to the fact that Mr. Davis, from Adelaide, purchaser of Dr. Morgan's patent for preserving meat, had takes premises at Town Marie, on the Bremer River, about cix miles from Ipswich, and that the operation of curing had been commenced. Having sinoe then visited Mr. Daris' establish* ment, and witnessed the mode of working the patent, we are enabled to furnish our reader* with some aooount of the process. As is now pretty generally known, the Morgan patent con* sists in emptying and washing out all, oven the minutest, blood-Teasels of an animal while the carcass is still warm, and afterwards filling the same with brine. This is done in a very simple and expeditious manner, and the meat tlius cured is very different indeed in flavor, con sistency, and general appearance from that which ...

PLEURO-PNEUMONIA. WE this week continue the statements regard-<*> ing the general mode of treating pleuro-neu-<*> monia, made by Lord Bury. The ordinary (allopathic) method of treatment had been very simple:— "The practice had been to dilate muriatic Mid combined with linseed teainoneor one and a-half drachm dotes, given frequently, m much as fir* drachma per day, sometimes combined with Ktian, tormentula, and ginger. It had aleo n customary to dilute sulphuric acid, com bined with sulphate of quinine in equal part*. Theae were the principal allopathic remedies and they tared 45 per cent.

HOCKINGS' GARDEN MANUAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

HOCKINGS' GARDEN MANUAL. THE receipt of a copy of this neat little volume affords us real satisfaction. In the first place, because it will fill a want experienced by most amateurs, few there are amongst us who win not growers in the eolonj; whether practical men or profit bj an occasional reference to •ach a hand* hook. In the second pbee, because it is bj far the neatest and most substantial thing of the kind we hare yet seen in Australia, and, therefore, creditable to the colony. Nor did a perusal of the volume disappoint the expeeta tions to which it* respectable-looking exterior had given birth. We there found much to enlighten, instruct, and amuse; the whole being submitted in a modest and deferential spirit, especially soothing to those who make a study of the "gentle art." The preface is a perfect gem in the way of horticultural literature; too many of those who have previously travelled the road entered upon by Mr. Hooking! commencing their journey on a hobby which they bel...

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. II. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. Ova pleasing duty yet remains to be performed ere I conclude these prefatory observations. My most grateful acknowledgment, are publicly due to Mr. Walter Hill, the respected and able director of the Botanical Gardens in Brisbane; also to Mr. William Moore, of Milton, farmer, and likewise to Mrs. Bliss, of Bt. John's parson age, William-street, for their exceeding liber ality, and great kindness, in supplying me with mulberry leares for prosecuting my experi mental operations during the silk season of 1865. lam compelled to confess that, had it not been for the very encouraging co-operation which I invariably experienced in the quarters mentioned, my exertions in the cause of seri culture in Queensland would have been much crippled, and the results proportionately meagre; but, with the generous aid which I hare periodically derived from the parties indicated, I am now enabled to make an ex hibition of no inferior character: whi...

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

MANURES. A correspondent in a previous issue asked for information on the effects of manures from those who had practically put them to the test. We fear the num- ber of such are too few to afford much satisfaction; the prevalent idea being that when land ceases to produce crops in its natural state, without manure, or stimu lant of any sort, further than the very rough cultivation given here to the soil, it is valueless, and the sooner the operator removes to fresh ground the better. Manures have been tried systemati cally but to a very limited extent, al though some of the most valuable, as bone dust and guano, are to be had at very low rates. Bone dust we cannot help look ing upon as a most valuable fertiliser in such a climate as this —the experience of the Americans and others goes to prove that such is the case. We, however, should not forget the greatest of all fertilisers— the sewage and muck of the centres of pop ulation ; and the articles published by us last week and this...

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. TASMANIA v. VICTORIAL. (From the Special Reporter of the Melbourne Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

THE INTERCOLONIAL CRICKET MATCH. TASMANIA v. VICTORIAL. (From the Special Reporter of the Melbourne Argus.) THE match between the Eleven of Victoria and Sixteen of Tasmania was played last Friday and Saturday, on the Launceston ground. The Victoria Eleven had arrived at Launceston on the previous Sunday, after a rough and stormy passage, and had taken up their quarters at the Club Hotel, which is within ten minutes' walk of the ground. The latter is very prettily situated, and with care might be made a very good one. It was, however, in had condition, especially for fielding; but by watering and rolling the eleven managed to secure tolerable wickets. Having been arranged for the champ ion race week, the match rather lost its in terest in comparison with that event, and the attendance both days was very select, scarcely five hundred persons being present on the Friday, whilst the early termination of the game on Saturday quite took the Tannrostonism by surprise, and the defeat of the...

SYDNEY AND GALLE MAIL SERVICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

SYDNEY AND GALLE MAIL SERVICE. FROM time to time we have been buoyed up with hopes that the Peninsular and Oriental Company were about to confer on the colonies the boon of fortnightly mail communication with England. Mysterious intimations have found their way to the Press at intervals, to the effect that the great company, tired of the alow progress of the negotiations between the Impe rial and Colonial Governments on tho subject, were about to out the knot in a summary man ner. But month after month has elapsed, aad we now learn that we are no nearer the consum mation so much desired than we were two years ego. The terms asked by Ihe Peninsular and Oriental Oompsny were greater than the autho rities appear to be willing to ooncede; and tho anticipation that tbe mail contractors would in crease the frequency of the service, without sat adequate " consideration " for their work, was certainly not founded upon any inatanoo of liberality to be found in the previous history of the com...

The fourth anniversary of the late Prince Consort's death was observed with the usual solemnity by her Majesty, who, with those of the members of the Royal family who were at the Castle, repaired in the morning to the mausoleum of the Prince, in the grounds of Frogmore Lodge. The interior of this magni ficent place of sepulture had been previously prepared for the Queen's reoeption, the steps leading to the porch having been oorered with crimson carpet.
