NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

NEW ZEALAND. THE following is compiled from the Otago papers, which are to the 37th January:— THE GREAT FLOODS.—Accounts continue to reach us from all Quarters of the devastation crated by the flood*. At the Nokomai it hat been very severe; in lactjfe has received mren blow, and jot at a tin* when thing* were look ing cheering and the population inrroasintf by ■men returning from the West Coast. Com mnnicatioo with Skipper's it yery precariously maintained. The road is via Moke Creek, which thai far it a lair one, but from this point com mences a dreadfully bad and dangerous track on the west side of tha BhoU>Ter. Most of the residents of Queenstown have mored into their old habitations. Very little repairs hare yet been done. We sincerely hope it will not be our painful duty to record a third flood, but such a thing is probable, judging from the heavy and continuous rain we hare experienced since yesterday morning. — Wakatip Mail, January 21.

News by the Mail. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

News by the Mail. ( FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) December 26. Christmas-time brings with it the usual quietness in public and commercial circles, attention being devoted especially to the culture of social and domestic amenities and: enjoyments. The general prosperity of! the country, unparalleled as it is, in- | creases the means of personal and social i gratification, from which the wage-classes are by no means excluded. In all the im- I portant manufacturing oentres there is suffi cient activity to raise the handicraftsmen above penury; so that in the hilarity and indulgences of the season they are able to share with their wealthier neighbors. ! There is one drawback, and that is rather serious—namely, the high price of meat; and this is hardly likely to be lower, until we can have importations of preserved fresh meat from abroad. The Society of Arts is paying great attention to the pro cesses for preserving meat; and there seems some probability that one or two will be practical...

MRS. LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

MRS. LINCOLN. The New York Independent publishes the following extract from a letter recently written by Mrs. Lincoln, the widow of the late President of the United States:—" Truly," writes Mrs. I4qooln, Mno sorrow has been like unto mine. I am m broken-hearted over this OTerwkelming affliction m when the terrible tragedy first occurred, and of course realise it far more. I hare lost the most taring and devoted of hus brnda, and my dear boys the best lather that tons were trer blessed with. < Until God's lore •hall place me by his side again/ I shall know no peace or alleviation of my grief. Knowing him as you did, I am sore you can pardon and appreciate a wife's great sorrow over so untimely a loss! . . . How I wish you could hare been with my dear husband the last few weeks of his life! Haying a realising sente that the unnatural rebellion was near its dose, and being most of the time away from Washington, where he bad passed through such conflicts of mind during the la...

THE CESAR GODEFFROY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

THE CESAR GODEFFROY. This ship left Hamburg on October 15, and went direct to sea, but meeting with very severe weather in the German Ocean she put back to Cuxhaven after being two days out. She lay in port for ten days when she again put to sea, but was once more compelled to return to port. Her final departure was made on the 5th November, and she went down the channel with a favoring breeze, and cleared Landsend on the third day, November 8. Thence to the line she had pleasant and fine weather, and she crossed the Equator on December 6, in long. 29 deg. 12 min. W. She at once fell in with the South East Trades, and had a good run to the Cape of Good Hope. The latitude of that point was made on December 22, and she crossed the meridian on the 31st of the same month. About five days before passing the Cape she experienced a very high sea, and on January 2, in lat. 40 deg. 9 min. S., and long. 27 deg. 50 min. E., she met with a very heavy gale from the W.N.W., accompanied by a high ...

Miscellaneous Items. (From the Latest Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

Miscellaneous Items. (From the Latest Papers.) THE relations of the Federal government with France and England are stated to be entirely satisfactory, and no prospect exists of the friendly relations being disturbed. Sir Frederick Bruce has consented to act as umpire of the commission appointed for the settlement of the claims of the United States against New Grenada, growing out of the riots at Panama, in 1856. A strange accident has taken place at a public ball in Vienna. An oncer became entangled by the crinoline of his partner, and, falling, broke one of his legs; the lady rolling over him in her torn fell on the other leg, and fractured it like- wise. THE South-Western Railway Company own 572 miles of railroad.

News by the Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 February 1866

News by the Mail. WE have been requested by the Secretary of the Brisbane Hospital to acknowledge, with thanks the receipt of £2 11s. 6d. from the work- men employed by Messrs. Hope and Potts, at the cutting of Duncan's Hill, Fortitude Valley. THE escaped convict Gleeson has been seen at Messrs. Slack and Jackson's station, Green- bank, on the Logan. Mr. Black saw a man riding one of the station horses on Monday evening, and pursued him, but he rode away into the bush. On the same night he appeared at the head station, and was then recognised as Gleeson. He remained all night. Gleeson said that he had escaped from gaol, and rode from Brisbane on a black horse. The persons on the station, however, had not previously heard of his escape, and did not like to arrest him on his simple statement, which at the same time they did not believe. He left the station on Tuesday morning, stating that he intended to go up country. The horse he was riding on Monday evening was recovered. As soon as...

THE DISEASE IN POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

THE DISEASE IN POTATOES. To make my statements plain to those inter-<*> ested in this "Disease in Potatoes Question," it may be as well to state that my farm is on the river, and consists of scrub and forest land. I do not think what previous writers on this sub ject have termed the disease is any disease at all, or has any affinity with the potato disease of the home farmers, with which I had many opportunities of becoming acquainted. Or. is perfectly correct in his description of bad tubers, and I believe many growers are obliged to him for bringing the matter under notice, believing that good may result therefrom. For my own part, I cannot see that he is correct in anything else. I have tried all sorts of seed, paying a high price fur some of them, and the decay has attacked my summer and occasionally my winter grown potatoes, and if anyone can show me how the evil is to be remedied I will feel obHged. It is how to avoid the trouble we want to learn, for I fear the ...

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. III. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. ON the 20th November, I was unfortunate enough to lose upward, of 400 fins silkworms through a portion of the calico covering drop-<*> ping, and thus leaving an aperture for some fowls to enter. On the 23rd November, I baked a second lot in Mr. Ball's oven: and an additional quantity was likewise subjected to the same process on the 87th, at which date I had only about two dozen worms requiring food. From the time of being hatched to the ivttnTrif^fynifTit of spinning, the silkworm lives eight weeks in Queensland; but the climate in fluences of this country appear to render the worm more forward in this colony than in Victoria. This assertion is corroborated by the discrepancy which exists between the periods of their relatively first appearance in other latitudes: in the southern districts of Australia, where the climate is comparatively cooler than in Queensland, the silk worm is considerable slower in passing ...

COTTON AND SUGAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

COTTON AND SUGAR. IN addittion to the report on sugar and cotton cultivation already published, a gentleman from the neighborhood of Ipswich states that the crop of cotton now being gathered by those who have persevered in its cultivation will fully reward them fur all past disappointments. It is an historical fact tbat cotton growing in America passed through a precisely similar phase as it has already done in Queensland, and, as has been the case with us, would in all probability have ceased altogether but for the perseverance of a few. Let ters by this mail state that the demand for such cotton as Queensland produces is actu ally unlimited; while the price ofiered is the highest, being from 3s. to 3s. 6|d. per lb. Such an impression has. the Queens land cotton scut home produced in Liver pool, tbat we learn several Americans are now on their way to this colony to judge of it for themselves. The probabilities are that cotton growing will henceforth take root in Queensland. Sugar-g...

At 7 a.m. it was found necessary to slip the cable, and the anchor and forty fathoms of chain were lost.

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART II. WHEN first I came to Brisbane, this fair space (So from the magic of a wizard wight Who dwells exultant yon rosy mound) — Was but a region for the prickly pear Save where, like Goldsmith's garden, flowers grew wild: Such was my life; all beauty not quite dead, But choked to utterly it so appeared. Yet even them there dawn'd a brighter day t For then my resolution—(gir'n by Hue, To whom be praise for ever!)—tared my lift. I fled the city of the vivid " Vaults" (As one who from a fearful ferer flies) j And in this Queensland —This, O friend* to me, Oasis in a world that wm so void, — Where first I lived, and where I hope to die— I sought, amidst the flocks, that peace of mind I could not find amidst the homes of men. And in the desert, farthest from my Fiend ; Farthest from those who are call'd fellow-men; Think you, was I unhappy? Ay, if Heaven Suddenly opening on a mortal's sight Could make him sad, thai say I was unhappy. —I felt a new lif...
