WARWICK. February 2. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

WARWICK. February 2. There was a heavy shower yesterday, and it is calculated three quarters of an inch of rain fell during the last five days. There is every ap- pearance of more. An active canvass is being made for sub scritions towards the next Agricultural Show, and from present appearances it is likely the show will be a great success. Business in town is very quiet. Maize is quoted at 9s. per bushel.

THE BRISBANE SAW-MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

THE BRISBANE SAW-MILLS. THOUGH never much spoken about, the tim- ber trade which has sprung up in different parts of the colony has acquired considerable import- ance. One of the characteristics of Queensland is the value and variety of its woods, especially those suitable for building purposes. On the present occasion we purpose giving a brief notice of the saw-mill of Mr. W. Pettigrew, the largest establishment of the kind in the colony, and which has done much to develope the industry to which we refer. Mr. Pettigrew's saw-mills are conveniently situated on the banks of the Brisbane River, where the timber logs, whether brought in punts or as rafts, can easily be landed, and, after being cut into boards, A&c., can be re- moved, without difficulty. The timber used is of several varieties, viz :—Hardwood,— blue gum, ironbark, flooded gum; pine (including the cypress), beech, yellow wood, cedar, and gnarrou; and it comes from different parts of the district. The Brisbane Riv...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1866. THE great event of the week is the change of the Ministry, which was an- nounced in the Government Gazette on Thursday morning. The Government now consists of Mr. Macalister, Premier and   Secretary for Lands and Works; Mr. R. R. Mackenzie, Colonial Secretary; Mr. J. P. Bell, Colonial Treasurer; Mr. Lilley, Attorney-General; and Mr. John Douglas, who will represent the Govern ment in the Upper House. The only de partment which changes hands is that of the Colonial Secretary, and in it Mr. Mackenzie has an opportunity of distin guishing himself. If this gentleman will faithfully maintain and put into practice those principles of economy which he has consistently professed whether in or out of office, very considerable reductions will be made in the overgrown and ill-managed establishment of which he is now the head. His repu tation for honesty of purpose will raise ex pectations which it will not be prudent in him to disappoi...

ADDRESS TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

ADDRESS TO OUR READERS. IT is usual, on issuing the First Number of a new Journal, to say something of the prin- ciples on which it will be conducted, and the objects which it is proposed to attain. In com- pliance with this wise and time-honored custom we will briefly state the nature of the work we have planned. Our first desire is to render this paper what its name implies, a steady advocate of the general interests of the colony. There has, for some time past, been a great want of a standard colonial journal, not only to contain a record of local events, but to take a com prehensive view, and to give a faithful chronicle, of all matters affecting the interests of the whole colony. This want the Queenslander is designed to supply, and if experience and assiduity, combined with the use of the most extensive resources, can command success, the undertaking must prove a prosperous one. All classses of the community will find in our columns fair representation, for however much divers...

A TERRIBLY STRANGE BED; OR, THE TRAVELLER'S STORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

A TERRIBLY STRANGE BED; OR, THE TRAVELLER'S STORY. SHORTLY after my education at college was finished, I happened to be staying at Paris with an English friend. We were both young men then, and lived, I am afraid rather a wild life in the delightful city of our sejourn. One night we were idling about the neighborhood of the Palais Royal, doubtful to what amusement we should next partake ourselves. My friend pro   posed a visit to Frascati's; but his suggestion was not to my taste. I knew Frascati's, as the French saying is, by heart; had lost and won plenty of five-franc pieces there, merely for amusement's sake, until it was amusement no longer, and was thoroughly tired, in fact, of all the ghastly respectabilities of such a social anomaly as a respectable gambling house. " For Heaven's sake," said I to my friend, " let us go somewhere where we can see a little genuine, blackguard, poverty-stricken gaming, with no false gingerbread glitter thrown over it at all. Let us...

THE COMING MUNICIPAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

THE COMING MUNICIPAL ELECTION. MEEANCHIN. TIME was when an aldermanic election was looked upon as a fit season for indulgence in a variety of stale jokes meant turtle soup, portly stomachs, gouty legs, and noses of doubtful shape and color. The British alderman, gene rally speaking, was traditionally fat and pursy, given to double chins, and capable of a fabulous amount of exertion in gluttony and winebibbing. The "good old times," however, have been buried long ago, like other good things, in the "tomb of all the Capulets," and we are begin ning to be accustomed to see lean, wizen-faced, and angular persons occupying the time-honored position of aldermen. There is only one man amongst our present Council who can pretend to come up to the old standard, but there are many who can safely measure themselves by the new. How can we account for this? Have the public lost confidence in fat people, or are fat people losing confidence in themselves? Our   local DANIEL LAMBERTS h...

GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIPS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

GERMAN EMIGRANT SHIPS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER.     SIR, —The arrival of the ships La Rochelle and Wandrahm in Moreton Bay, suggests to my mind that our authorities be at once called upon to institute a rigid inquiry into the pre- sent system of German emigration, and put a stop to a monopoly too long conceded, and abused by a cruel, grasping, and unprincipled capitalist. Who or what is this capitalist ? He is the prince of "Seelenverkaufers," and holds his   court in the Wandrahm. He owns a fleet of ships, and must, as a matter of course, find em- ployment for them. Hence he becomes a Con- cessionierte Agent —odious term)—and is recog- nised and authorised by the several German Governments to rob and fleece those particular subjects who seek to better their condition by emigrating. It is to this Boss that his minions (Conces- rionierte Agenten in a lesser degree) who are to be found, one or two, in every village, look for the means t...

THE PRESENT CONDITION OF JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

THE PRESENT CONDITION OF JAMAICA. The following extracts are from a letter which Dr. Underhill, one of the secretaries of the Baptist Missionary Society, has addressed to the Right Hon. E. Cardwell, on the subject of the present condition of Jamaica: — " 33, Moorgate-street, sth Jan., 1865. " I venture to ask your kind consideration to a few obserrationß on tho present condition of the island of Jamaica. For several months past, every mail has brought letters informing me of the continually increasing distress of the colored population. As a sufficient illustration, I quote the following brief passage from one of them :—' Crime has fearfully increased. The number of prisoners in the penitentiary and gaols is consideraby more than double the average, and nearly all for one crime—larceny. Summonses for petty debts disclose an amount of pecuniary difficulty never before been experienced, and applications for parochial and private relief prove that multitudes are suffering from want lit...

EXECUTION OF GORDON, BOGLE, AND OTHERS.

A letter in the Colonial Standard gives the following account of the execution of Mr. Gordon, on the 23rd ultimo:— Rumor soon spread that George William   Gordon was to meet his doom at 7 o'clock, and, as it wanted only a few minutes of that time, I hastened down to the place of execution. There he stood high above all other rebels, beneath the great arch of the burnt Court-house, with his   hands and feet pinioned, and the halter already round his neck. It was underneath this same arch he stood taking notes on the day of his ejection   from the vestry board. Beneath him were the steps on which he was wont to stand when haranguing a multitude on the days of elect...
