THE CULTIVATION OF SILK. To the Editor of the Queensland Times. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 19 November 1861
THE CUHTIVATION OF STLK. To lh Editor Sf Omm Qu~ee uand' Tils. Smw,-IIvineg prepared a specimen of silk for the Exhibition of 1862, I beg 1o sedi you a few particulars on the subjectof its preparation, which may beof interest to some of your readers. The silk exhibited is the produce of 2227 silkworm; and weighs 5}Ozo. A few worms were obtained by me two years ago, and having from last season about 2500 eggs, I thought that it would be of some service to this young colony-epecially as a sample of its products would be required in the grand International Exhibition of 1862-to turn the stock which I had to account, by rearing the worms and obtaining their silk. This I have accordingly done, and I have moreover obtained about 500,000 eggs, whish can be hatched either now or in August next, according to the mode of treatment to which they may be subjected. They will hatch readily in a few days if exposed in a warm situation, or they will l:sep till the ensuing August if placed in the da...

THE O'CONNELL-IVERAOHI COPPER HIKE. To the Editor of the Qsueesland Times. Su,-The proprietor of this mine having, made an appeal to the public, through the columns of the press and by circular, for the means of working the said mine, perhaps y.u will allow me to publish a few remarks on copper mines m general and this onesin particular. It was toward the latter end ef 1843 that the celebrated Burra BurrD s mitie was discovered in South Australia the wonder of the world, and perfectly sal generis. So extremely depressed were mattere at that time in the colony, that it took three of her weglthiest citizens, with their combined capital, to purchase the 80-acre section in which it is situated, althouah the price paid was only £1l per ncest A company was formed, and the shares were hawked about the other colonies at £5 per share--the original cost--withJittle or no suocess.

BANKING. To the Editor of the Queensland Times. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 19 November 1861
B ANKING. To the Editor of the Queensland Tiume. Sro,-Could you find room in your columns for the extract I now send you) I think it may be useful before we are committed to any partieular monetary system. If in addition to the capital of the British banks, the people have been able to lend to the Govern ment eight hunndred sdioens-of pounde, I think there can be little doubt as to the superiority of a National Bank over the Joint Stock system. "There was a time, and we are not sure that itis quite gone by yet, when people rejoiced in the existence of a Noationsl Debt. What are we to do with our money, they cried, if there are no funds toplace it in s What is the use of saring if our lives are to be harrossed with discovering and watching investments? What a gain, too, is it to the country, that so many people should have comfortable incomes f-om console, and be able to enrich their neighbourhoods by such liberal expenditure. Then, too, a N?ational Debt gives such stability, such di...

A MORMON CUSTOM. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 22 November 1861
*A Mouton Custaor.-A retroactive proxy applies to women who, desirous of becoming in eternity the brides of persons who have died in the odour of sanctity, marry a living man, who contracts this union in the name of one deceased. It was thus that Brigham Young consented to marry in time a woman who desired to be in eternit} one of the queens of Joseph Smith. The children who are born of marriages contracted under the system of retroactive proxy belong naturally, according to Mormon prneiplee, to the eternal husband, and not to their natural father.-A Journmey to Oreat Sat Latke City.

A MORMON ORDINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald & General Advertiser — 22 November 1861
* ' A MO-lo? Q1RDflqATIO? . *AFom iJoueney to Great Salt Likea Oily. By JUius Hemoy and Juliusa Bresoldey, M.A.) There exists among the Mormobs a sort of doc trine of reserve, which is now communicated only to the men, but which, it is said, will at somne future time be communicated to the women. It is nodoubt to some part of the doctrine of.reserve thatwemast refer the ceremony called the endowment, a species of ordination or initiation for both sexes, which can be r-ceived only after a severe probation and under the sanction of the most terrible oaths. We have no precise information respecting the nature of these mysteries; all we do is to relate what we gathered from a perjured and apostate priest. We give the following details, indeed, without in the least vouch. ing to their correctness, so utterly distnstefil is it to us to place full confidence in the spiteful deposi tions of people who have betrayed their fellows. This is pretty nearly the account which our inform. ant gives...

THE PtETENDEBR. (From" The Countess of Albany," in the Westeminster Review. Charles Edward Stuart, the young.Pretender, was married sin 1772. A quarter of a century had then elapsed since the total route of Culloden, and a death-blow lihad been given to the hopes he nourished of ascending the throne of bhisancestors. Adversity had not improved him. By nature be was incap able of meeting hardships with fortitude, and of bearing up against unavoidable disappointments with a dignity which commands respect. The esteeni which had been universally accorded to tlhe gallant and aspiring youth was exchanged for cordial detestation of the debaiched old man. Like all those who are at once cowardly and feeble minded, he sought for solace and a temporary alleviation of his misery in the wine-cup; he began each day by drinking, ani long before night was in astate of drunken insensibility. His father and brother considered it was an exceptional thing for a day or two to pass away without receiving...
