AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
AMERICA. Advices from the Southern States are generally satisfactory. Three-fourths of the States having rati-&lt;*> fied the constitutional amendment abolish- ing slavery, it is now the supreme law, and the great end for which the war was fought is practically accomplished. Four Southern States —North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama—have ratified the amendment. Mr. Cowan, of Pennsylvania, submitted a resolution requesting the President of the United States to furnish the Senate with information of the state of that portion of the country recently in rebellion—whether the rebellion has been suppressed, United States courts restored, Post Offices opened, revenues collected, and whether the people of those States yield obedience to the laws and government of the United States. Under objec tion of Mr. Sumner, this resolution was laid over.—ln the House of Representa tives, Mr. Blame, of Maine, introduced a bill which was referred to a select commit tee, provid...

THE RAMSGATE MURDER CASE. (From the Evening Mail, December 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
THE RAMSGATE MURDER CASE. (From the Evening Mail, December 24.) THE acquittal of Stephen Forwood, alias Ernest Southey, on the ground of insanity would have been so fatal a precedent, that his conviction must be welcomed as an im- portant triumph of justice. The murder for which he has been aentenced to death at Maidstone was not only one of the most atrocious on record, but was the sequel to another, equally atrocious, which he did not even disavow, but for which he has never been tried. Both were prompted by vindictive motives, of which the origin was distinctly traced to his own heartless mis conduct, and both were effected with a ruthless deliberation absolutely inconsistent with any form of madness recognized by law. The evidence, indeed, was singu larly free from the ordinary elements of doubt and discrepancy, and the defence, though probably less desperate than any attempt to explain away the facts, was certainly as desperate as any that has ever been set up. It appears that ...
CLUB GOSSIP. (From the London correspondent of the Liverpool Albion, December 18.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
CLUB GOSSIP. (From the London correspondent of the Liverpool Albion, December 18.) THE opinion gains ground that before long we shall see Mr. Bright in the Cabinet. The hon. member, for a considerable time past, has been given to lauding American institutions and comparing them with our own, to the disparage* &lt; ment of the latter. This it it which gave rue in the minds of many of his countrymen to the impression that he was a Republican, and would wish to see England a Republic. In his speech j at Birmingham on Wednesday, he not only applied himself to removing this impression, bat was eloquent on the subject of the Queen's liberality. Speaking of her Majesty and the late Prince Consort in their individual capacity, he paid to both his tribute of respect and admi ration, and argued that the political sympathies of the Queen were with the classes whose cause it is his own delight to advocate. Another charge very strongly urged against the hon. member two years ago, was tha...
FOR THE LADIES. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) London, Dec. 26, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
FOR THE LADIES. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) London, Dec. 26, 1865. DESPITE the gloomy fogs and dreary dampness of what in old gossips lore is termed a green Christmas, London is beginning to fill with the members of that upper ten thousand class, whose gay doings, and, in many cases, unlimited expenditure, cheer the work ing bees of our busy metropolis with sauguine hopes of a forthcoming " good season." Beside this, we have a double reason for rejoicing, for at last our beloved Queen is about in reality to emerge from her long and sorrowful seclusion, and will we are told, if Her Majesty's health per mits, open in person the New Parliament. A marriage in our Monarch's family, and her reported residence again in Buckingham Palace, which we may reasonably suppose, will once more witness the festive gatherings of former days, add to the ardent expectations of those whose well doing rests on the bril liant fetes and entertainments of the wealthy and noble. Even at this time London...
NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
NATAL. WE are in receipt of papers from Natal (Durban and Maritzburg) to November 4. The Natal Mercury of that date gives the following items of news.— The expediency of some constitutional re form grows more and more apparent. Indeed the impression is gaining ground that the gorerning powors aro doing what they con, pur posely to prorc a necessity that has yet been only partially admitted. We think it may be said that as a rule tlie colonists are not desirous to rush headlong into any phase of govorn tnent that may bo in advance of the position and circumstances of the colony. The spirit of radicalism is not rampant in Natal, and if the present Executive wished to do so, they could easily keep it down, fiat such is not their evident desire. They, doubtless, mark the eagerness displayed by all shades of statesmen at home to shake off all colonial resposibilitiet. They, probably, are impressed by the oft-expressed policy of the present go vernment to make the colonies self dependent,...
SHIPWRECKS AND THEIR CAUSES. (From The Times, December 25.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
SHIPWRECKS AND THEIR CAUSES. (From The Times, December 25.) "ANYTHING but history," said Sir Robert Walpole, "for that we know must be false;" and certainly, when we are able to inquire into the manner in which history is made for us, we see much more reason than at first sight appears in confirmation of the cynical observation of the old Whig leader. Any one who .considers how fre quently it falls within his own observation that men will pervert, mistake, or color to any extent facts concerning which they have an interest in misleading mankind, must be astonished at his own credulity in accepting without question so many state ments on the faith of persons who also have an interest to mislead him. Even our painful retrospective searches into events the best evidence of which lias long since perished often enable us to detect the very process by which an error has been magni fied into a stroke of genius, a crime con verted into a hard necessity, and a happy chance into a superb comb...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 1. IT cannot be otherwise than highly gratifying to the most ardent friends of colonisation to witness the daily progress of the German settlement on the lower part of this river. part Nearly every day are we receiving fresh people, either from newly-arrived vessels or from the bush. Somehow or other, the Germans seem soon to have made enough money to settle upon a farm, although they land with little or nothing. A few, and but a few things, apparently, are needful, and they can start. What would en* tirely pozale an Englishman, outwit the Scotch, and l*ave the Irish completely in the shade, the German can, by his natural plodding habits, by his economic style of living, and by the general adaptability of his outgoings to his incomings, accomplish with perfect ease. They soon get started, and they are very industrious as well as careful. Then the Germans, like all other suc cessful people, can talk of it. It is only juat two years since...
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, February 27) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866
IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, February 27) The Ipswich District Court opened yester-&lt;*> day, but as there was no criminal business it was adjourned until to-day, when the civil busi-&lt;*> ness will be commenced. There are thirty- seven eases on the list, about twelve of which are defended. An accident happened yesterday to a man named George Graham, who was thrown by a yonng hone near Churchill, and rcccivea some very severe injuries, including n deep cot extending about two and a-haif inches round the chin, presenting the appearance of a second mouth. Graham was brought into town, and the injuries having been dressed by Dr. Dorsoy, the patient is now as well as ctn'bo ex* pecteu. A melancholy accident happened on Thurs day evening last, which ban since terminated fatally. A man nnmrd Maurice Collins, a resi dent of the Seven-mile Crook, was riding home on the evening of that day, and when some dis tance beyond the One-mile Bridge, he ran fool of a b...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. March 2. THERE IS no change to report from this dis-&lt;*> trict—still the same incessant drought. All planting is at a stand still, and it is feared that much of the crop, already planted sill be a crop* already planted failure. The fine start given to the grass by the shower* two or three weeks sinse bu been entirely checked, and the country looks as bad M ever I remember to have teen it. In many places I hear the water is getting scarce, and has to be fetched in some instances from water holes one and a half to two miles distance. The early planted potatoes I am very much afraid of being destroyed unless rain should speedily fell. The corn is already irretrievably injured. Where in ordinary reasons, from the length of time planted, it would hare been four or even fire feet high, some of it is not more than nine or ten inches, and where the drought has not to much interfered with its growth 1 fear the cobs will be anything but what the...
