THE WHEAT MARKET. (From the Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
THE WHEAT MARKET. (From the Adelaide Observer.) THE high prices of the last two years, are producing a perceptible effect on the wheat and flour market at the present time. Farmers can afford to hold back their produce, and they are now doing so. Tor many years past farming has been rather dull and unprofitable work. Prices wore miserably low, and when this mm round jaar by year ready money with oar agricultural friend* was vary aoaroe. As soon, therefore, aa their cropa were eat they were obliged to force then into the market, and cell them for whatever price they would fetch. Their necessities, and not their will too often eonetrained them to tarn theirpro daee into money m quickly ac poeaiblii How* ever maeh they may have wished to hold back their crops, the naoesaity for money eompeUed them to pat them into the market. Now, this was undoubtedly a drawback from the fair profits which agriculturists had a right to expaet. They could not afford, in many instances, to wait until the...

THE LAND QUESTION IN NEW ZEALAND (From the Lyttelton Times, February 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
THE LAND QUESTION IN NEW ZEALAND (From the Lyttelton Times, February 14.) ON Saturday last Mr. Travers gave to the public, through our columns, his calculations of the difference of cost between the system of bor-&lt;*> rowing upon the security of the waste lands and his proposed system of selling portions of the land at a reduce* pries. With a real desire to do justice to any proposal intended to pro mote the welfare of the province, we have ex amined Mr. Travers* figures carefully and re peatedly. We have consulted experienced accountants and mathematicians ripe from the University. We have invited suggestions from politicians, sheep-farmers, and speculative l—« 1 buyers. And we have now to confess that the eonehtsions of Mr. Travers remain quite rntelM gible to us and to all whom we have consulted. Home distance down the figures, indeed, an acute observer may go with understanding, but the remainder is intricacy itself: worse than a puzzle, it is a chaos of figures. Pe...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
VICTORIA. WE have Melbourne papers to February 26th. The following extracts are from the Argus:- None of the goods subject to the imposts contained in the new tariff imported by the Ethio- pian and the Essex have as yet been pasasd at the Custom-house. Probably the importers have hopes that the tariff wOl not become law, and are therefore disposed to refrain from pay ing duties as long as they can, seeing how diffi cult it is to recover from the Government money that has passed into the treasury. Upwards of ninety horses were shipped on Saturday on board the ship Harkaway,at Sand ridge Town Pier, for the Calcutta market, to which port the vessel is bound.

NEW ZEALAND. NOTES ON PASSING EVENTS. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, February 15. GENERAL Chute has completed his Wan-&lt;*> ganui campaign, for the present at least, by a return march to Wanganui from New Plymouth. The experience of his inland expedition was expedition fully confirmed by bit coast march. There was no want of enemies to oppose him, but there was no evidence of spirit on their part for the task. Hence his march was nearly bloodless, only a very few natives ever coming within rifle range of his troops. The Waria Pa, which was known to be strong, and to have long been a sort of head-quarters station of the rebeb, was taken with but a few shots fired. One of oar men was killed and four more or leas wounded, while the dead bodies of four natives ware found. Thus it b evident that the spirit of obstinate resistance b dying out at Wanganui amongst the rebels, who seem to be alwaya ready now to give way if at all pressed even by Tory infe...

THANKSGIVING DAY IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
THANKSGIVING DAY IN AMERICA. THANKSGIVING-DAY is always a great institution among the citizens of the United States, and the Thanksgiving-day of 1865 could not fail to be distinguished by unusual rejoicing. Thanksgiving-day is at once the Harvest Feast and Christmas tide of the New World It is not held upon any stated anniversary, and the time of its celebration varies from year to year according to the proclamations of State Governors or Presidents; but somewhere about Advent and Hallowmas a day is set apart among the people of the North as a season of thanksgiving for the blessings of Nature, as an acknowledgment of the fulfilment of the Divine promise which declares that harvest shall crown the industry of man, and as a time for the reconciliation of enemies and for cementing afresh the bonds of union be tween kinsfolk and friends. It is evi dent that in 1865 there was an especial reason for celebrating such a festival. The great family of the nation has been knit together once m...
