The Veterinarian. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

The Veterinarian. CATAERN, or cold in the head, is more com-<*> mon amongst horses than any of the other do-<*> mesticated animals. It consists of inflammation of the mucus membrane lining the nostrils and cavities of the head. "When neglected op badly treated, the inflammation pastes downwards to the bronchial tubes and longs, and sometimes giTes rise to such alterations of structure as produce chronio cough, roaring or whistling. In simple catarrh, the mucus membrane is reddened and bedewed with a watery fluid, which in a day or two becomes yellow from the admixture of pus. Sneezing and a cough are also present, but the pulse and respiration are almost unaffected. The most common causes are sudden alterations of temperature, draughts and bad ventilation. The same causes, in a more aggravated form, acting upon delicate animals often induce inflammation of the lungs. The treatment consists in supplying the animal with fresh air, keeping the body and limbs...

PLANTS FOR THE COMING SEASON. THE RHODODENDRON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

PLANTS FOR THE COMING SEASON. THE RHODODENDRON. CONCERNING the native condition of this fine shrub, a writer in the Gardeners' Chronicle says: Although found growing naturally on widely different clevation and in various habitats, implying a great diversity of temperature and local influence, they, in general, associate well together under artificial treatment. The fears expressed by Dr. Hooker on their first intro duction, that such would not be the practical results, hays happily not been realised. Eren in a natural state, they, like plants in general, readily adapt themselves to accidental circum stances, and under the opposite conditions of cultivation they are equally docile. Is not Dalhousis* on its native hills at one* an Epiphyte and a terrestrial plant? And does it not here at once settle down quietly in a pot of red day and an artiieial compost? Edgeworthii too is equally an Epiphyte, and as readily forgets this Pme branches on which it florished in the humid forests of th...

OUR COAL FIELDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

OUR COAL FIELDS. THE mineral deposits near the coast are of great interest; and it must be a source of satis- faction to every colonist, who hopes to found a family, that we have the black diamonds in abundance, and within reach of shipping. On the Bremer river there is both coal and lime;   it only remains for us to find iron ore within a reasonable distance of the other two, and we then possess three of the greatest elements of national wealth. Great as the commercial value of our coast coal-fields has already attained, and is likely to become, there are fortunately for us as a people, vast fields of coal in the interior. The greater portion of Eastern Australia is destitute of internal navigable rivers. A great deal has been done on the Murray, and the navigation of the Darling has been successful to a certain point; but these rivers are far from the great centres of trade and civilisation, and the iron horse must in time to a great extent supersede their useful- nes...

News of the Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

News of the Week. THERE was a very well attended meeting of the Acclimatisation Society yesterday, in their offices in the Parliamentary Buildings. Some interesting correspondence was read from England by the Hon. Secretary, and also a very satisfactory report from Mr. M'Pherson, the Manager of the Society's reserve, Bowen Park. Captain Bliok, of the C.M.S.S. Souchays, was present, and stated that there was a great desire evinced on the part of the Batavians to effect exchanges with the Queensland Society. The Hon. Secretary remarked that the Society were greatly indebted to Captain Blick for various donations received from him, on his return from Batavia, and it was agreed unani mously that that gentleman should be an hon orary member of the society. Altogether the future prospects of the society brighten as it becomes more known. The only source of regret in connection with it is, that it does not receive sufficient support from those who in future years wiU be moat benefltted by ...

SANDGATE. [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] February 28. YOU have your "correspondents" in every little hamlet in the bush—from Cape York to the Warrego and Condamine—and I do not see why the "Brighton" of Queensland, that most fashionable watering-place, Bandgate, should not b« represented. You are aware, I presume, that Lady Bowen and fiunily are sojourning here at present, showing, no doubt, the good taste of her ladyship in haying selected Sand gate for her summer residence, 'file " Brighton," a splendid house, is well patronised, so is the " Clarendon" doing a fifcir business.

JAMAICA. REPRESSION OF THE RIOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

JAMAICA. REPRESSION OF THE RIOTS. THE following extract from a letter, received from a medical officer in charge of the troops, will be read with painful interest:—Plantain Garden River, October 23, 1865.—Dear father, —All the niggers in Surrey have mutinied, and I am in charge of the 6th Bcgiment aince last Wednesday week. Our flying column has killed 260; I killed 11 with my sword and revolver; first day I buried 22 murdered Englishmen, including Baron Von Kettleholdt, over whom I read the burial service myself. The young Baron Alfred and Baroness, Lieut. Jones, R.A., and myself, escorted down to i H.M.S. Wolverine, under a strong escort of artillery, and killed 4 rebels on the road. In the afternoon, I took 6 men and a corporal to rescue the Baronets' jewels, and found every thing in the house smashed, and 200 rebels there. I took the men (all mounted) into the sugar canes, opened fire; when they saw the ' white soldiers they fled, but everything of the ' Baroness' wat smathed We...

PRESIDENT BUCHANAN'S DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

PRESIDENT BUCHANAN'S DEFENCE. One of the strange phenomena which fre-<*> quently present themselves in the political society of the United States has just arisen there. Mr. Buchanan has published a history of his administration as president—self-defen- sive, of couree. The book has not yet, we be lieve, reached this country; but the notice* we see in the newspapers exhibit the leading points of the argument; and they certainly do not di minish the surprise which is naturally the tint feeling in all men's minds, that the ex-president : should have ventured to call public attention to I the most ignoble period in tbe life of the Be* public, and to attempt to vindicate tbe policy which made that period so ignoble. Mr. Buchanan has wisely withdrawn himself from public notice during the last four yean; but he has evidently not employed the interval in learning the lesson which hi* fellow-citizens of all parties unite in acknowledging—that the time has long been over for any...

ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

ROCKHAMPTON. WE have received files from Rockhampton to February 26, or six days later than those hitherto acknowledged by us.

MACKAY. (From a Correspondent of the Port Denison Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

MACKAY. (From a Correspondent of the Port Denison Times.) ALTHOUGH I am one disposed to believe in the future of Mackay, there would be an utter disregard of truth in the statement, were I to make it, that maturity existed in it as a township of four years standing, but Mackay has   undergone a sad martyrdom—condemned and blackened by its next-door neighbours, and mis- represented in Parliament, it has had to struggle hard for an existence. Strangers passing through it found little prepossessing in it, and less of the go-ahead element which invariably characterises settlements in Northern Queensland, and the general impression entertained was that Mackay was one of those insignifieent places which were never destined to be of any use to man or Government. But times have changed;—our neighbors are beginning to see and understand that "this" Mackay, after all, cannot be such a "God-forsaken spot," when its capabilities as to sugar-growing and semi-tropical productions are...

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

GIBBONS' CAMP. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) February 20. THE line of railway between here and Holmes' Camp is now progressing very favorably; the men are all at work, and have had no material stoppages through the weather, although we have had a few heavy showers accompanied by thunder during tho past week, but not of suffi cient duration to retard the progress of the work. The bridges near here are rapidly ap proaching completion, as far as the road work is concerned, and from appearances will be well adapted for the purpose intended. The one across Lockyer's Creek, which has been erected by Messrs. Luya and Dale, is 280 feet long, with two main spans of 80 feet each, to be fitted with iron girders 8 feet deep, with the exception of fifteen piles, which are driven into the bed of the creek ; the piles, to the number of one hundred and fifteen, are planted in the solid rock, holes having been drilled for that purpose, and afterwards cemented in, giving the supports of the bridge an...

DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

DUNN, THE BUSHRANGER. A principal item from Sydney is the trial of John Dunn, the bushranger, who was charged with the wilful murder of Constable Nelson, at Collector, on January 26, 1865. The court was crowded. The   Attorney-General prosecuted for the Crown,   Iand the prisoner was defended by Mr. Patter-   son and Mr. M'Devitt. After hearing the evid-   ence, the jury retired for ten minutes, and then   returned with a verdict of guilty. After the     usual question was put to the prisoner as to   whether he had anything to say, his Honor (according to the report of the Empire) thus addressed him :— " You must hare expected this result to have   taken place, and that from a verdict pronounced   so instantly, you can but expect that your ignominious death has been richly merited. It is lamentable to see such a young man, scarcely   twenty-t...

The Farm & the Garden. GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 March 1866

The Farm & the Garden. GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. FROM the great interest shown in the matter of grape-vine cultivation, it is evi- dent that that branch of culture is in a fair way of obtaining the amount of attention its importance and value demands. When the first letters reached us, asking for in formation as to the best soils and varieties of grape-vines for cultivation, we thought it best to refer the matter to gentlemen who, from experience obtained in the colony, we considered best qualified to ad vise those who intended entering upon this branch of cultivation. The response to our request has in every instance been     given with a heartiness hich does honor   to their public spirited intelligence. One feeling seems to pervade the vignerons consulted, viz., that too many cannot enter upon this branch of cultivation. They are satisfied that many difficulties are to be surmounted before the reputation of the colony as a wine produce...

New Publications. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) December, 1865. DR. LIVINGSTONE'S Narrative of the Expedi-<*> tion to the Zambesi and its Tributaries, and of the Discovery of the Lakes Shirwa and Nyassa, 1858-64," claims first attention. It is not so . novel, but quite as interesting as his former work ; it covers less ground, but is rather easier reading. It is scarcely possible to condense it and retain its interest,* io, perhaps, one or two extracts will best show the character of the work. The main object of the expedition was "to ex tend tho knowledge already attained of the geography and mineral and agricultural re sources of Eastern and Central Africa, to im prove our acquaintance with the inhabitants, and to endeavor to engage them to apply them selves to industrious pursuits and to the cultiva tion of their lands, with a view to the produc tion raw material, to be exported to England in return for British manufactures; and it was hoped that, by encouraging ...

If the police cannot give an ac count of the Wild Scotchman before long, it will become a question whether we had not better clear the towns of the force and throw the duty of maintaining public order on the inhabitants. The police force if sent at once into the bush with power to obtain remounts wherever they could find them, would soon capture or shoot the ruffian who now unchecked robs our mails and endangers the lives of peaceful travellers. The necessity for this step becomes daily more pressing. The volunteers could be relied en to keep the peace of the town, and special constables could be sworn in to undertake this duty. Every twiK~»« an should turn out with the ttub-Inspertors...

GLADSTONE. (From a correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) MONDAY was a great day in Gladstone, what with the District Court opening, and the nomi-<*> nation.

The Rockhampton people— 1 will not call them Port Cuitii electors, because they are not—did all they could to convince us that Palmer was the man, but we could not be brought to see it. A.
