Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 9. THINGS are very dull in this district. The continued absence of rain is very severely felt on all hands, and though most of the farmers are proceeding to prepare ground and plant j potatoes, it is in many instances without much , hope of a favorable result. The weather at | times seems to give indications of approaching j cliange, but in a few hours they are dispelled. . We had showers both on Tuesday and Wed nesday evenings, the latter evening giving us great hopes, but it has been quite clear since, and there are now fewer indications o£ rain i than ever. ', There have been several complaints recently iof losses by petty larcenies. Like most places out of town, the inhabitants have hitherto dwelt in comparative security. No doubt, if such thefts are repeated, they will keep a rharper look out in order that the offenders may be brought to justice.
The Farm & the Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
The Farm & the Garden. THE weather still continues warm and sultry, the sky often betokening rain in a way most tantalising. Showers have fallen at different points during the week, as our telegrams inform us, but nowhere in suffi cient quantity to warrant putting potatoes or any other seed into the ground—better, we think, to risk early frost than invite certain destruction at the present time. When all else is so backward, it is pleasant to see the really fine crop of cotton being gathered by those who have clung to that branch of cultivation. So few are the items to which growers are turning attention, that it might be well to prepare or reserve a few acres for seeding with this crop in October. Cotton does best on land previously under cultivation—say with potatoes or maize. It is neither so choice with respect to soil or locality as was at first supposed. The clinging seed varieties, variously called New Orleans, Uplands, and Egyptian, have all been found to do well in ...
GRAPE-VINE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
GRAPE-VINE CULTIVATION. So firm a hold have the Black Ham-&lt;*> burg and Sweetwater grapes taken on the growers whom we have consulted on the subject of grapevine cultivation, that it is very questionable if the list contributed by Mr. Lade could be improved upon. Such, at least, seejis to be the opinion of a great many growers; for the ideas of others who may dissent we will at all times reserve space. Mr. Hockings, in his " Manual," says : " Out of ninety sorts grown by the author, the Black Hamburg is decidedly the best black grape for Brisbane, and the Sweetwater the best white." A correspondent, who dates from the Main Range, gives the Reisling a very high character, and believes it to be the grape most suitable for that locality. He says "It not only yields the finest fruit, but is the earliest grape I know of around Too woomba. As a wine grape, I know not its equal, and failure with it is next to im possible. I may add that the vine does very well in this neighbor...
CRICKETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
CRICKETING. A MATCH was commenced on Saturday after-&lt;*> noon between eleven of the Victoria Club and sixteen of the Caxton Club. There was nothing worthy of special mention unless it be the fine bowling of Fowles, and the free batting of M-Gratb, on the part of the Victoria Club. The Victoria only sent in ten to bat, keeping a place open fcr one of their best batsmen, whoHs expected to show up to-day. Some very fair batting was displayed by the Oaxtons, t> it none of them were lucky enough to attain double figures in the first innings. The fallow ing is the soore :— AvALTsrs or Bowxnro.—Caxton Club (first innings) : Fowles bowled 78 balls, 19 runs, 8 maiden overs, 8 wickets; Macnish, 78 balls, 85 runs, 1 maiden over, 4 wickets.

GREAT HEAT—HOW TO LESSEN IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
GREAT HEAT—HOW TO LESSEN IT. THE protracted spells of sultry weather endured of late, too seasonably invite our attention to expedients practised by older and more experienced communities in miti- gating such trying visitations, here as •be where to much dreaded lor invalid! and young children. The exhausting summer, with its powerful sun and frequent " hot wind," constitutes the one drawback, and it is a formidable one, in our Australian climate, otherwise singularly salubrious in the exemption from miasmatic exhalations. And the drawback is all the more felt because the population is new in the land and assembled from colder countries. It is quite true that the annual mortality is, in proportion to numbers, much less consider able than a few years ago; the population, as a whole, having become somewhat set tled and acclimatised, both by the gradual adoption of more suitablehabits and the smal ler per centage of strangers from the de crease of immigration. Bat, as we see by the sta...
CHURCH OF ENGLAND, KEDRON BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
CHURCH OF ENGLAND, KEDRON BROOK. A MEETING of members of the Church of England residing in the neighborhood of Kodron Brook, was held on Saturday afternoon, at 5 o'clock, on the church reserve presented by his Honor Mr. Justice Lutwrj ehe, the object of the meeting being, to take into consideration the proposed erection of a building for holding i)inne service at that place. The Judge was present i the Eev. James Matthews, liessrs. Vaughan, Barlee, W. Leaver, Calton, Powell, Huinpresct, Hauflf, Forbes, and two or three other residents in the neighborhood whose names we did not learn. It was expected that there would have been a much larger attendance as the want of a church at Kedron Brook has long been felt, and a great deal of interest has been manifested in the movement. It appeared, however, that the small collection of Church supporters was attributable partly to tlie short ness of the notice convening the meeting, and partly to ignorance as to the exact locality of the church ...
DISEASE IN POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
DISEASE IN POTATOES. I SEE the communication upon this sub-&lt;*> ject sent to you has drawn forth some comments from writers signing themselves "Kedron" and "J." in the Queensland of February 17 and March 3 respec tively. Before going into the general question opened up by these writers, it will perhaps be as well to show the points of agreement as to the cause of the disease in question, and how far the statements made by both writers, which they think throw doubt upon my conclusions, have really that tendency, or whether, on the other hand, they are not capable of expla nation, in accordance with the causes as sumed to produce the disease. Both writers agree with me in the belief that the potato disease is caused by drought, at any rate in some measure, though " Kedron" says I altogether failed to show that there was not sufficient mois ture in the soil to bring the plant' to ma turity, meaning, I presume, from the tenor of the succeeding remarks, had the moisture been...
THE SEASON AROUND TOOWOOMBA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
THE SEASON AROUND TOOWOOMBA (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) A HEAVY fall of rain set in on Saturday last, continuing during the greater part of the night, since which we have had brisk cool winds (ne-&lt;*> cessitating the use of an extra blanket), with short and partial showen between periods of growing sunshine. The rain of Saturday will materially assist the com, and facilitate cultiva tion, some of the later plantings of corn having begun to show symptoms of too early ripening. Many of our agricultural friends, true to the " old type," were beginning to grumble, their daily expectations of a " good soaking" PSMtnc over their heads to fertilise some more favored district. As the season for wheat planting approaches, I would again repeat, that the chief elements of success lie in a proper course of tillage, and the selection of good seed. I trust, therefore, that the chance successes of negligent cultivation will not induce the farmers to scramble in a greater breadth tha...

BRISBANE PETTY DEBTS COURT. TUESDAY, MARCH 6. DEFENDED CASES BEFORE the Police Magistrate. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
BRISBANE PETTY DEBTS COURT. TUESDAY, MARCH 6. DEFENDED CASES BEFORE the Police Magistrate. Bertwhistle v. Pears.—£3 7s. 7d., money lent. This claim was in some way mixed up with one that was heard at the last sittings, and the Police Magistrate recommended the parties Magistrate parties to hare their disputes arranged by arbitration. Both of them contented, and an order was mode for arbitration. Beeton t. Stone.—The plaintiff sued for £2 10s. 9A, for work and labor done. He said that the defendant had employed him to cut down a scrub for him; hit wages were to be £1 a week, and s*. was to be allowed him in lien of rations; he worked two weeks; he received 9s. 3d. on account. The defendant did not dispute the claim, but pleaded a set off, only a portion of which the plaintiff admitted. The defendant insisted that his contra claim was correct. The set off amounted to £2 os. 9d., and the Police Magistrate gave a verdict in favor of the plain tiff for the balance. Fogarty r. Swindle.—Th...
