THE WAR BETWEEN SPAIN AND CHILI. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

THE WAR BETWEEN SPAIN AND CHILI. AUSTRALIA having been of late so de-<*> pendent on Chili for its breadstuffs, any disturbance likely to prevent further ship-<*> ments from this country will be looked upon with considerable interest by your readers, affecting, as the blockade most assuredly will, the price of the loaf all through the colonies. With the view of supplying reliable information, which other wise could not reach Australia, except via England, in about 110 days, I avail of the return of the Mary and Edith to send you the following:— The cause of the war arises, from all I can gather, from the position taken by Chili during the blockade of the ports of Peru, and seizure of the Chinchas by the Spanish fleet in the early part of the present year. It appears that the Republic of Peru, al though recognised by most European powers as a separate State, had never for mally obtained her independence from Spain, and in occupying the guano parts with her ...

HOW DISTRICT COURT CASES ARE MANUFACTURED. (From the D.D. Gazette, March 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

HOW DISTRICT COURT CASES ARE MANUFACTURED. (From the D.D. Gazette, March 3.) IF the extension of Justice is to be a boon to the outlying districts; if it is to bring the means of redress to a man's very door, instead Of his being compelled to undertake a long and expensive journey, leaving wife, children, and business to take care of themselves, it must be superintended by those who can discriminate between actual crime-and imaginary. AtthenrstaittingoftheWcsternDistrictOourt, atßoma, sometime was taken op with the troubles of one James Gibsou, charged with stealing a horse belonging to Mr. Basseit, a squatter in whose service Gibson had been since July, 1865, and to which service, after a short interregnum of eight days, during which he was spending his cheque for shearing—he returned, welcomed alike by proprietor and orerseer. It was proved in erideneo that this man was helplessly drank; that, in hi* inebriety, and on being suddenly wakened up, he took the wrong hone, off the wron...

GLADSTONE. March 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

GLADSTONE. March 5. Macpherson, alias the "Wild Scotchman," stopped the mail running from Maryborough to Gladstone, on Saturday, near Blackman's. He opened the letters, but took nothing from them. He states that for the future he intends to rob travellers and not the mails, as the latter do not pay.

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle, March 6.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

UPPER MARY. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle, March 6.) A GALE of wind is blowing to-day ruthlessly driving away the clouds, that seem otherwise willing to give us some rain, for which we are panting as the hart for cooling streams. I cooling have been silent for some time, but your readers have not been the worse off, as your Tiaro cor respondent seems to fill my place most admir ably under the head of the Upper Mary. The present drought is breaking the hearts of the farmers, and unless it breaks up shortly the whole of the present season's crop will be a failure. The leaves of the maize plant are shrivelled up, and do not unfold themselves at night under the influence of the dew, while scarcely are cobs formed at all on the stalks, it seems indeed that the best thing to be done with the corn is to cut it green and feed cattle and pigs with it, that it may not uselessly cumber the ground. There is no more stir amongst us about the market. Do the committee think,...

OUR PRESENT POSITION. (CONTRIBUTED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

OUR PRESENT POSITION. (CONTRIBUTED.) IT is of very little importance now as to whether it was Mr. Herbert or the unanimous voice of the Executive body that caused the various alterations and tampering with the first Emigration Act. The result was the same to the colony. It is, however, very probable that the former, if not the sole mover in the matter, at least took a very active part in the sui cidal policy. In extenuation of the action of the Government, in connection with their interference with the working of the Act, it was advanced by them in reply to • question emanating from the opposition benches, that the cause of their altering the land-orders from being available for all lands within the colony, to only being available for "country lands, or lands within any Agricul tural Reserve," was, in consequence of the Treasury being inundated with land-orders, while the Treasurer handled little or no cash from the sale of Crown lands. And as there had been a large sum placed upon ...

WARWICK. (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

WARWICK. (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 6. I PERCEIVE you have given notice of the dis-<*> covery of a bed of petroleum, or kerosene coal, in the vicinity of Warwick. I have seen speci-<*> mens of the mineral, and my opinion is that my opinion it is a splendid sample of common coal; it is situated on the Canning Downs Run, in a scrub about four mile* from Killarncy, and apparently runs horizontally from the bank of a creek into a hill about 200 feet in height. It can be easily worked by horizontal shafting, and the road into Warwick, about fourteen mile*, is said to be very easy. It is presumed that the dis covery will benefit the district, of which I have no doubt, if the coal turns out anything as good as it looks. It burns freely, and is very gaseous. Our alluvial diggings arc extending over a rery considerable extent of ground, now far away from the original alluvial fields, and re* ports, accompanied with good samples, are daily coming into ...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 10, 1866. THE extension of the telegraph wires to the Gulf of Carpentaria would not be con-<*> sidered justifiable if it were merely intended to serve the purpose of communicating with the new settlements in that distant part of the continent, though it will no doubt be of great use in promoting their welfare. It is as a link in the chain of electric telegraphs which we hope that before very long will unite the Australian colonies with Great Britain, that this un dertaking derives its chief value; —as such, it has a lair claim to be looked upon as a national work, of almost as much value to New South Wales, Victoria, and South Australia as to Queensland. And we may fairly congratulate ourselves that those who occupy the highest positions in the colony are capable of taking such enlarged views, and of carrying them into practice as fast as the material progress of the place renders it safe to do so. The preparations that are being made ...

MINING NEWS. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) Drummond, February 22. ALTHOUGH there was rain this week at several places, there has been scarcely a drop at Gregory's Creek; the locality is parched up and utterly unworkable. Messrs. Thompson and Healey still keep carting water to supply the camp lor ordinary purposes, but wash-stun* cannot be cleared off owing to the great dis tance to water, several, I behave, will leave this creek after they have washed up.

CROWN LANDS SALE AT BRISBANE ON Wednesday, Mr. A. Martin held a sale of Crown lands at the City Auction Mart. The lots offered were country and suburban lands, and the first-named being in favorable situa- tioni, were readily bought, while all others were, comparatively •peaking, neglected. There wem 61 lets originally proclaimed, but, of these* three were withdrawn. There were actually offered, 27 lots of country land on and near the Brisbane River, two near the Nudgee Water* holes, one on the Serpentine Creek, and eleven on and near the Logan River. There were twenty suburban lots offered, and all of these were situated in the neighborhood of Cleveland bat they did not find favor with buyers. Some of the lands on the Brisbane Eivf •■ realized high prices; as much », Cl 3 15a. per - acre in one instance, iknmghout the sale there was a good attend* •nee, and there was sharp competition for the lots just mentioned.

Scientific Items. SIXTY-SEVEN officers are still alive who took part in the battle of Trafalgar, October 21, 1805. THE bitter substance of strychnine is so in-<*> tense that its taste can be detected in 600,000 tunes its weight of water. It is said that the beet culture in Fiance now furnishes more than a hundred million pounds of sugar, for human consumption. Lf Great Britain upwards of 14,000 animals have been attacked by the cattle plague since its first appearance, and of these nearly 12,000 have died. Ikfbbmioks on the eye are permanently con tinuous which are repeated seven times in a second. On this is founded the toy called the thanmatrope. Ths popular notion that Ireland is the great source of supply for soldiers is incorrect, Great Britain supplying 619 men for every 874 ob tained in Ireland. It appears from a report presented to the Norwegian Storthing that 100,000 children are educated in the district schools of that country at an annual cost of £80,000. By...

LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866

LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 8. THE weather experienced here lately has been at the extremes of best and cold so suddenly that some great change seems looming for us.
