MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
MARYBOROUGH. WE have received files from Maryborough to the 7th instant. The Chronicle of that date states that the following passengers from the Sultana have been landed »t Maryborough: —ll4 married men, 112 married women, 8 single men, 55 tingle women, and 141 children under twelre years of age—total, 430. Seventy-eight children and two adults died daring the vof age. From the same journal, of the 3rd instant, we take the following items of news:— Thursday, March 1, by the thermometer, was tho hottest, and by human experience, the most opprcMive, depressive, day we have experienced this summer in Maryborough. Owing to the long dry season that lias prevailed in the neigh borhood of the town, the grass became dry as tinder, and being by accident or design set on fire; the town vrn» surrounded by burning hush, the smoke of which, for some time, com pletely obscured the euu, aud when the wind blew it seemed as though it were a blast from a furnace.

GIBBON'S CAMP. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
GIBBON'S CAMP. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 6. THE only important item that has affected this camp during the past week, is the news of the alienation of No. 2 section by the Govern-&lt;*> ment from the hands, of Messrs. Peto and Co. How Cur this will affect any of the other por tions of the line, omn be but at the present a matter of conjecture. That sapient journal, the i^tumudamd Tim**, being at usual in the dark regarding all provincial matters, advises the Government "to take the whole of the con tracts in their hands, as they hare been repeat edly requested to do," bringing in at the same time some stupid rimUs as to " a cat and its first mouse." Of Mr. Cross' reputed (by them) dismissal,* it is unnecessary to speak, as you hare already completely contradicted their assertion j but why they should bring their pen to bear upon the matter in advice to the Government as to what they should and should not do, is a perfect mystery. Without a single exception, the ...
GYMNASIUMS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
GYMNASIUMS. HOMO. The inhabitants of Liverpool have lately erected a building the importance of which, in its probable effects on both the physical and moral character of the population, it is perhaps difficult to overrate. We allude to the gymnasium, or public school of athletic exorcises, which has been built at the cost of £14,000, and which, after having been formally opened by Lord Stanley in a very appropriate address, will require for its maintenance the annual sum of £1000. It is an experiment boldly made by public spirited men, who have no selfish interest! to serve; but who have simply at heart the lasting good of the great community to which they belong. That they will succeed in the object for which they set such an insti tution a-foot there is little cause to doubt, that object being to provide in the heart of the town tome easily accessible puce where young men of all classes may procure for themselves that bodily exercise which is so necessary to anything like health,...

NOTIONS OF LIBERTY. "Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing." [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
NOTIONS OF LIBERTY. "Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing." BY BILL ARP. NOT much I don't, not at this time. If there's anything sweet about liberty in this part of the vineyard, I can't see it. The land's good enuf, and I wouldn't mind hearing a hyme or two •boat the dirt I lire on, but M for finding sugar and liberty in Georgy soil, it's all a mistake. Howsuraever, I'm hopeful. I'm much calmer and sereener than I was a few months ago. I begin to feel kindly toward all people, except tome. I'm now endcaverin' to be a great na tional man. I've taken up a motto of no Nor ;h, no South, no last, no West; but let me tell you, my friend, Fll bet on Dixie as long as I've got a dollar. It's no harm to run both skedules. In fakt it's highly harmonious to do so. I'm a good Union reb, and my battle cry are Dixie and the Union. But you see, my friend, we are getting restless about somethings. The war had bekum mity heary on us, and after the big ©ouapse, we thought it was over for good. Wo ha...

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART III. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. IN THREE PARTS. PART III. As is the fire unto the wither'd grass, Evolving freshness from the field of death, So was that penance to my stricken soul. At length, exulting in my new-born life, length, exulting my I said —" Is't right I longer keep apart "Asa deserter from life's battle-field t " Bather again let me rejoin the ranks, " If haply I may be of service there." So once again I to the city came; And join'd once more the human busy throng. And great my joy was—great my wonder then To find—ay find the world itself traaafbrm'd! Those eves so kindly that were once so cold; Those so regardful, once contemptuous were: And these, with like changed voices, made me cry- Sure 'twas myself, and not the world, to blame! Delightful was the amity I proved Where'er I went amidst the affluent homes! And all seem'd glad—so glad, beholding me. Nathless a few would taunt me ever with " In medio tntistimu* !"• "Yes," I slid, " A favorite maxim with the world, I know; " Futile ...

THE OLD FAMILIAR FACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
THE OLD FAMILIAR FACES. BY CHARLES LAMB. I HAVE had playmates, I have had companions In my days of childhood, in my joyful school-&lt;*> days; All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I have been laughing, I hare been carousing, Drinking late, sitting late, with my boson cronies * All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I loved a lor* ones, lancet among women % Closed are her doors on me, I must not see herl— All, all are gone, the old fi"*"l'^ fawn. I had a kind friend, a kinder friend has no man; Like an ingrato, I left my friend abruptly % Left him, to muse on the old familiar faces. Ghost-like, I paced round the haunts of my childhood, Earth seem'd a desert I was bound to tr areas, Seeking to find the old familiar face*. Friend of my bosom, thou more than a brother, Why wert thou not born in my father's dwell ing? Bo might we talk of the old fiiniliar faces. How some they hare died, and some they have left me, And some are taken from me; all are departed; All, al...
