G.W. GORDON'S LAST LETTER TO HIS WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

G.W. GORDON'S LAST LETTER TO HIS WIFE. "My beloved Wife, —General Nelson has been kind enough to inform me that the court-<*> martial on Saturday hist has ordered me to be hung, and that the sentence is to be executed in an hour hence; so that I shall be gone from this world of sin and sorrow. " I regret that my worldly affairs are so do* ranged; but now it cannot be helped. Ido not deserve this sentence; for I never advised or took part in any insurrection. All I ever did was to recommend the people who complained to scL'k redrcßß iv a legitimate way j and if in thiß I erred, or have been misrepresented, I do not think I deserve the extreme punishment. It it, however, the will of my Heavenly Father "G.W. GORDON." that I should thus suffer in obeying His com mand to relieve the poor and needy, and to pro tect, as far as I was able, the oppressed. And glory be to His name; and I thank Him that I suffer in such a cause. Glory be to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ...

REFORM MEETING AT BIRMINGHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

REFORM MEETING AT BIRMINGHAM. A great Reform meeting has taken place at Birmingham. The mayor presided. Mr. Scholefield, the senior member for the borough, was absent through illness. Mr. Bright spoke at great length on the subject of an extension of the suffrage. His speech on this occasion has been described as statesmanlike as well as eloquent. We subjoin an extract of it:— A large portion oi the speech was occupied with an attack upon Sir John Pakington and Mr. Adderley, for having called Mr. Bright and his friends Republicans, and with a dis proof of the charge, the making of which the hon. gentleman characterised as a not very moral act. (E» supposed that the Adderleys and the Palringtons had reed history at college, though he would not guarantee it, and what, he asked, was the teaching of history in regard to the dethronement of monarehs and the substi tution of republican forms of government?

THE "TIMES" ON QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

THE "TIMES" ON QUEENSLAND. The wide-spread Colonial Empire of England affords ample room for the contemplation of every species of climate, every variety of pros-<*> perity or adversity, and of political well or ill- doing. To-day we invite our readers to accom pany us, not to the ice-bound lakes of Canada, nor to the blood-stained forests and mountains of Jamaica, bat to a happier land, where colo nisation displays itself under its brightest colon and most aUarmg aspects. Extending from the frontier of New South. Wales to the northern extremity of the Conti nent at Gape York, with a coast line of 1500 miles, the Colony of Queensland might be sap posed to possess a very great variety of soil and climate. Tha£ however, is not the case, since its southern extremity lies little below the Tropic of Capricorn, and its great length from north to south does not much interfere with the uniformity of temperature which pervades the Torrid Zone. It might hare been supposed that t...

THE BURNING SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

THE BURNING SHIP. On Wednesday a telegram was issued in town, announcing that a ship had been seen burning near Lady Elliott's Island, by the Saxonia on Monday night. Our correspondent's telegram was very meagre, but was substantially correct, as proved by reports received next day. They run as follow:— " Gladstone. February 21. " The vessel seen burning by the Saxonia on Monday last at 10 p.m. was a large ship. She bore from Lady Elliott's Island east, 15 miles, and from Sandy Cape north by west, 30 miles. She was burning within three feet of the water, with the exception of the bows, which appeared to be those of a clipper ship painted black. The figure-head had fallen off. The bowsprit was standing, but the masts had fallen, and it was   not likely that the ship could float for more than an hour after the steamer left her. At the time the wind was from the east, and the   sea very smooth. " Captain Page thinks that the boats might have run before the win...

THE TOWER OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

THE TOWER OF LONDON. THE Tower is the most haunted ground in London, and it would be strange if it were not, remembering the tragedies that were enacted there during many successive centuries. An old tradition affirms that the mortar used in the original construction was tempered with the blood of wild beasts; and certainly a bloody spirit seems to have brooded heavily over the oid building throughout the dark ages, and even as late as the time of the Second Pretender, if we may not say up to 1820, in which year Arthur Thistlewood, of the Cato-street con ■piracy, was imprisoned in the Tower, previous to being hanged at the Old Bailey. Not ODly hare many miserable wretohes loin within those walls, eating their hearts in despair until they hare been taken out on the scaffold and be headed, but a list of six persons secretly murdered there—beginning with Henry VL, and ending with Arthur Capel, Earl of Essex (1688) —may be derived from its annals. The gloomy old fortress, with its Blood...

"A BIT OF RECREATION." [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

"A BIT OF RECREATION." "ALL work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." So must Mr. Harris have thought when, on everything by the outward mail being ready for post, he considerately placed the Nowra at the disposal of his employés for a trip     to Moreton Bay on the morrow. After a week's hard toil, both mentally and physically necessary for the despatch of a mail, covered by a thou- sand "steel engraringi of her Majesty," it must have been exceedingly grateful to the   feelings of those engaged in it to find their efforts so fully and kindly appreciated by their employers—by their affording such an oppor- tunity for recreation, which must in its effect make a labor of love what would otherwise be a task. At 12 o'clock on Saturday Messrs. J. and G. Harris' establishment was closed, and at 2 p.m. the majority of those connected with it, with their amilies, started from Harris' wharf, bayward. One of the partners (Mr. Wilson) accompanied the party...

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

DRAYTON. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) At a meeting on Wednesday last of the Mu- nicipal Council of Drayton, for the election of a Chairman for the present Official year, three members attended. Alderman Boland proposed Alderman Webb as a fit and proper person to fill the office of Mayor for the current year, which was duly seconded by Alderman Ham- wood, and there not being the possibility of a dissentient voice, alderman Webb was conse- quently declared duly elected. Considerable indignation seems to have been excited by the removal of Dr. Armstrong from the Commission of the Peace. At a public meeting, called for the purpose of sympathising with that gentleman on so uncourteous a mea- sure, a large amount of "tall talk" was dispensed by some of the most frothy of his devotees. Mr. James Houston, one of the recently-elected aldermen attributed the supposed insult to the representations of Mr. Rawlins, P.M., and Mr. Morey, J.P., because Dr. Arm- strong did not agree with Mr. Morey ...

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Tuesday, February 13. IT would be no purpose for me to make any comments upon the news, the whole of which has no doubt been long since discussed in the Queensland papers. You have enough of them, and big enough too. The Q*ee**lander is an | astonisher. I mentally place it by the side of that little sheet that was issued from Albert street one Saturday morning in the month of June, 1816; but certainly somo progress ought to be made in twenty years. The Circuit Court opened yesterday, and Captain Robinson was sentenced to death for the murder of his mate. The nature of the eridence against him may be judged by the following:— " Owen Hughes was cook and steward of the Curlew, and on board her at Bandwich Island on the Bth April, when a dispute took place between the captain and Griffith; about half pact nine in the morning, the captain, who had been on board the schooner Coquette, returned to the Curlew, and ordered that Griffith, the mate, should bo p...

AGRICULTURAL CONDITION OF THE COLONY. THE TOOWOOMBA DISTRICT. (BY OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) WE have been over the greater portion of the extended agricultural reserve, sad we believe there to be scarcely a single sere but what will give a profitable return to cultivation; the •oil being generally good and of great depth, while the few ridges offer but little impediment to tillage. The color of the toil varies from the red (sometimes rather too light) jo the dark brown loam, aad black ; a large portion is . heavily timbered, not more so than the old re serve, but old bushmen say " the land that grows the best timber grows the best crops." There are, however, jjood breadths of oak, wattle, and apple tree flats, where the labor of clearing would be eomparatiTely nominal. The whole of the lands having water within their boundaries are already taken up, bat water is easy of access almost at all points, and may be obtained by sinking at no great cost.
