FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 20. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 20. I AM very sorry to preface this tester with an apology; but an apology must come from some one, for the scene of riot and disorder that took place on Sunday afternoon last on this camp. lam sorry to inform you that, instead of quiet and decorum being obserred, one of those scenes more resembling a strike-riot, or the wind-up of Donnybrook fair—broken heads, torn clothes, and blasphemy of the lowest description—were the substitutes on one part of the camp fo<* preaching and prayer. A number of men in the employ of Mr. Crowshaw (a gentleman whom, I am happy to say, knew nothing of their proceedings until after the re port had been generally circulated), being rather flush of money, in consequence of the Saturday baring been pay day on the line, paid a visit to this camp, enquiring of every person they met where they could obtain grog. Being disap pointed in their endeavors to obtain any, some of the ringleaders...

GOONDIWINDL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

GOONDIWINDL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 25. AFTER rather prolonged silence, I collect and hereby remit the state of our feelings on district concerns. The weather, in the first place, is as unfavorable as any misanthrope might desire— misanthrope might one continued blaze of heat. Though rains have fallen on every side, we are famiahing. Great tlireatenings end in smoke. Nothing could have exceeded our expectations when, but yesterday, dark clouds and thunder rolled around and above us, only to roll, rumble, and disappear. We have taken upon ourselves the honor of inviting Messrs. Watts and Taylor, our mem ben, to dine with us. We must prepare to don our best appearance. May Dame Nature don bar's also, and furnish her fields with their holiday green, for we wish to appear with good grace and kind welcome before our hon. friends on this their first visit.

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, February 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, February 24.) ROBERTS, one of the two gold prospectors of this district, returned to town on Wednesday evening. With him was Mr. Alexander Walker, of Mount Cyrus, who had gone up to view the gone np reefs, and between them they brought down • Tery large quantity of quartz (about 200 lbs.), which is the best sample of gold-bearing quartz we liave yet seen, and would we think give about fourteen ounce* to the ton when crushed. They had also about a quarter of an ounce of alluvial gold that had been panned out of some dirt near the reefs, and the appearance of it is certainly rery good; it is a rough kind of gold, and looks as v it had not been subjected much to the action of water, as there are many little sharp edges about it; in size it is like pin-heads, some larger and some smaller, and in color it is a beau tiful bright yellow, clear and clean, and is rather set off by the slight surrounding of the ore with which it is mixed. There cannot any lon...

MARYBOROUGH. WE have received files from Maryborough to February 28. The Chronicle of that date says:— The Platypus, Government steamer, arrived at Maryborough last Saturday evening, about 8 o'clock. The Platypus, it will be remembered, left Boekhampton on the previous Wednesday, by direction of the Government, to search in the neighborhood of Breakasa Spit for the pat aengers of the vessel aeen on fire there on lion* day last, by the captain of the Saxonia steamer. The captain of the Platypus obtained no tiding* of the passengers until he reached this port; bat there is no doubt that the hull of the resect, referred to in th* appended report, as seen ky the Soperintendent at Lady Eliott's Island, was that or the Teasel seen on fire—the barque Loda the description, as Car as it goes, exactly an swering to that vessel.

CLERMONT. THE following items are taken from the Peak Downs Telegr[?] of February 17:— On Tuesday last a few of the electors of Cler-<*> mont met Mr. Davis at the court house, to hear from that gentlemen an "account of hi* stewardship, and confer with him aa to the re quirements of the district, in anticipation of the forthcoming Parliamentary session. Owing to the ahortnMs of the notice, ;the paucity of at tendance andjthc want of a chairman, it was, after some conversation, agreed to adjourn the meeting till Monday next, when it waa hoped there would be a better attendance of electors, and some gentlemen present not afflicted with the extreme modesty from which our " leading" townsmen appear to so acutely suffer. Reports from all parts of the diggings are of a most discouraging nature, and men are daily compelled to leave for want of drinking water. At Gregory's Creek the necessary fluid has to be carted three miles; at Expedition Creak, where there are 250 Chinamen ...

A gentleman, who arrived in town yesterday from Mackay report* the roads in a very bad state. We regret ex esedingly that this news, confirmed as it U by Mr. Butler, who went orer the road, leaving hones by the way, preclude* all possibility of forwarding the telegram per Boaohays to Bris bane, as originally intended. The people of Bowen, though wiUing to undertake many things will not undertake to battle with the ele ment*.

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 3, 1866. The steamer Souchays arrived in the Bay on Monday last, having completed in seven weeks the Voyage to Batavia and back, calling at Bowen and Port Albany. As fur at English correspondence is concerned nothing has been done by this trip. The Souchays was delayed here tiro days after j her appointed time for sailing, and as might hare been expected she was a few hours too late for the bimonthly mail to Europe ria Singapore. Her mails would be de livered at the same time as those despatched on the 19th January. The steamer left Batavia on her return voyage on February 6,one week before the expectedarrival of the English mail.

THE EIGHT-HOURS ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

THE EIGHT-HOURS ANNIVERSARY. The adoption of the eight-hours' system has now become a colonial institution. Its intro duction was strongly opposed, but the sound basis upon which the movement was established overweighed all objections, and it haa for some ' yeare been publicly recognised. Following the ! example of the chief cities in the other colo- ! nics, the artisans of Brisbane, who enjoy the benefits of the reduction in the hours of labor ; determined to hold an annual procession on the Ist of March, that being the day on which the avstein came into rogue. The eight-hours' movement was adopted here fire years ago, but I it was not until last year that any attempt was made to commemorate the event. Thursday, therefore, was the second celebration, and the day was kept as a general holiday. The pro ceeding! of the day commenced with the procession. The rarious trades met at the Osbourne Hotel, Fortitude Valley, shortly after 8 o'clock and marched into town. The great proportion o...

MY BURGLAR. [FROM HARPERS' NEW MONTHLY.] [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

MY BURGLAR. [FROM HARPERS' NEW MONTHLY.] THE story of my burglar is as as follows: It was on a bright June morning, five years ago, that such a boat-load of friends assembled at the water-side, matronised as usual by sweet bright little Mr*. Gilbert and her dee* old doctor, i whose united presence insured the complete suooess of any of our little festivities. There was the usual set—Amy and Adelaide, Professor Tuckher and his sister, a clergyman, a lawyer, an officer, my rattle-brained cousin Charley of the senior class, and last but not least to each other were Foank and myself. As usual, Mrs. Gilbert's immense hamper was lifted out of the carriage with much ceremony and deposited on the wharf, putting to ■*»»»*"» the little baskets which Amy and I carried, fitted with anything we could find at the moment in the larder. Mrs. Gilbert's larder was always in picnic order, and we grew to depend a good deal upon that well-known hamper, and to think our duty done if we carried forks, spo...

I am a Cheap Jack, and my own father's name wm Willum Marigold. It was in his lifetime supposed by some that his name was William, but my own father always consistently said No, it was Willum. On which point I content myself with looking at the argument this way: If a man is not allowed to know his own name in a free country, how much is he allowed to know in a land of slavery ? As to the register, Willum Marigold come into the world before registers come up much—and went out of it too. I was born on the Queen's highway, but it was tho Sing's at the time. A doctor was fetched to my own mother by my own father, when it took place in a common; and in con sequence of his being a very kind gentleman, and accepting no fee but a tea-tray, I was named Doctor, out of gratitude and compli ment to him.

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XIV. THE RESCUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XIV. THE RESCUE. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. ON came the beautiful ship, with all her white canvas shining in the setting sun. Her deck, on which, from his fearful perch, Morley could look completely down, was spotless, and her crew seemed pigmies, herself a toy; bnt one, nerertheless, instinct with life, as she flew before the breeze, careening gracefully orer, with the white foam curling under the bows, and sweeping past her counter, to form a long grey wake in the green sea astern. Frantically Morley wared his impromptu banner, his signal of distress; and long he continued to do so, bathed in perspiration, and enduring an agony of hope and anxiety, before lie could perceive the crew hastening to the bows, the forecastle bitts, and some ascending into the fore-rigging, as if to hare a better look at him. " Hurrah, and blessed be God, they hare seen me!" he exclaimed. At that moment up went the scarlet ensign to the gaff-peak, from whence it was dip...
