SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. IV. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. It has frequently been a vexed question with modern politicians-"What are we to do with our boys?" My reply to these gentlemen is, extend •vary encouragement, and gnat every latitude to the erection of Mrieole establishments; minister your influence and co-operation in opening up and utilising this propitious arena of norel industry; strive to promote and stimulate private investment and public enterpise m so laudable and intelligent a direction; and then there will come a spon taneous and ready answer; then will there re* •pood a favorable and gratifying rejoinder -to the haekeneyed interrogatory, "What are we to do with oar children P" The juvenile inmates of our orphan asylums —the urchin Bedouins who infest our public thoroughfare* to the shame and scandal of civi lised communities and Christian churches, will then hare an eligible field presented to them for pursuing an honest and profitable occupation. Personally, I shoul...

Richards, Henry Lumsden, John Gooden, Joseph Penfold, John Clark, Charles Fisher, and William Mid- dleton were charged with the above offence.— William Williams, captain of the Legion of Honor, deposed that the vessel arrived in the Bay, on the 25th ultimo, and anchored on the 27th; the prisoners before the court had come &nbsp; out in his vessel as seamen; none of them were commissioned to leave the ship; he missed them about half-past two on the morning of the 28th, and missed the lifeboat also; at that time the ship had not been boarded by the Health Officer, and it had not been admitted to pratique; a blue flag was flying at the main mast; she was boarded by the Health Officer, some few hours after the men were missed; before they deserted, they lashed the second officer to the mast.—Sergeant Brady, stationed atSandgate, deposed that he ob...

ACCLIMATISATION SOCIETY. A MEETING of the Council of the Acclimati-&lt;*> sation Society, was held on Friday. Colonel O'Connel occupied the chair, and the following members were present:—The Hon. G. Eliott, theßev. J. B. Mbffatt, Messrs. Coxen, Douglas, Stephens, Rawnsley, Barlee, and Bernays. noxATioire raox batatia. The Secbktabt (Mr. Bernays) said that Cap tain Blick, of the Souchays, s., who was now present, had interested himself, on behalf of the society, in holding intercourse with gentlemen in Batavia. He stated that considerable ad vantages would be derived from exchanging animals, 4c, with the Batavians, who wished to obtain specimens of black swans, and kangaroos, and other birds and animals. Captain Blick had no doubt they would give others in return. He proposed purchasing what they required in Sydney, but it occurred to him that it would be better to procure them from the society. The | specimens Drought by him for the society con* sisted of a pair ofpea fow...
MY POULTRY YARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
MY POULTRY YARD. AMONG my various sorts and kinds, I had one little golden-laced Hamburg hen, of so elegant a form, so beautifully complexioned, and of such sweet, engaging manners, that I called her Lady Mary, afters certain lovdy and bdored young friend. Lad/ Mary made herself the favorite, whether I would or not. She wm al ways the fint to see me coming; the did not fuss herself; or gobble eagerly after food, bat flew on to ami) mI paand that nil, she flew into my hand. Prom it the daintfly helped henelf out of the tin of food. During the whole process of feeding, she remained on my hand or •boulder, looking down on the greedy crowd below with lofty disdain. Had the any grievance to communicate to me, the flew upon my hat, and made onslaught* on it. I thus understood the water was not fit for her to drink, or that some one had been daring to use her nest, or that she had serious thoughts of hying an egg. She was immensly fussy about her nest, going in and out of it, peering at me...
TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
TASMANIA. WE take the following from the Monthly Summary of the Hobart town Mercury Feb ruary 21. THE MAIL SERVICE.—There has been much discussion tins month on the mafl service question. Kobe of thsss colonies are satisfied with the way in which that service is |isifuisml by the Peninsular and Oriental Company, not Tasmania any more than the rest.

BY A SYDNEY MAN. Saturday, March 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
BY A SYDNEY MAN. Saturday, March 3. As I expected, the terrible war news from America, brought to Brisbane by way of Batavia, and telegraphed to the Herald, which journal founded a leader upon it, turns out to be, signi- ieanUy enough, " from the JT#» York Ar«w"— so I find from the Comritr, received la»t night per Boomerang. The Jfew, moreorer, is dated December 11, and as we had London papers to December 26 by last mail, we know tWt it is an bosh. Nevertheless, there are more unlikely things than an American war, though we must not be in a hurry to beliere New York stories. A far more serious thing is the tone of some of the latest Ingush papers, which, while not eon taming the slightest bluster, such as some New York papers indulge in, hare become grave and serious on this question. Let us laugh as we may about this Irish Fenian business, it is not altogether a thing to be laughed at, and if the Government of Great Britain continue* to be worried with Alabama daims on one hand, an...
Extracts from the Papers. A COTTON FAMINE YET TO COME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
Extracts from the Papers. A COTTON FAMINE YET TO COME. MR GEORGE M'HENRY, in the second edition of his pamphlet on this topic, re-&lt;*> cently published, remarks:— "I showed by the census figures that the quantity of raw cotton consumed by the mills of all the American States in 1859, six yean ago, was 950,112 bales of 400 lbs. each,' exclusive of a considerable quantity used annually in household manufactures, and for various other purposes.' The quantity thus used at that time, if it were known, would, no doubt, augment the figures to upwards of 1,000,000 bales of 400 pounds each, or fully 900,000 bales of the average weight The census states that the value, in 1859, of the domestic or hand-made manufactures in the Northern States was 5,699,727 dollars, and in the Southern States, 18,526,734 dollars. But these amounts included the woollen as well as the cotton manufactures thus fabricated. The mercantile official statement for 1859 shows that the cotton mills of all th...
BENEFITS OF IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
BENEFITS OF IMMIGRATION. WE take the following from an article published in the Melbourne Economist of February 23:— Of all the mischievous blunders which ignorance or political charlatanism can in flict on a new country, the stoppage of immigration is the most fatal to its pros perity and progress. The determined opposition of the work ing classes to on efficient scheme of immi gration, though much to be deplored, is scarcely to be wondered at. To the super ficial view the introduction of more labor appears calculated to overstock the market and reduce the rate of wages. The most unsatisfactory, but plausible conclusion from the premises, has scarcely been com bated by those of the opposite party, who certainly ought to have been better in formed. They seem to content themselves with the expression of such vague generalities as "Immigration is the life-blood of a new country'—r" Land is •of no use without labor to cultivate it"— and " No colony can prosper without an increasing pop...
LATER FROM WANGANUI. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
LATER FROM WANGANUI. EIGHT HAUS-HAUS KILLED AND SEVERAL WOUNDED.—ON OUR SIDE ONE KILLED AND A FEW WOUNDEND.-On Friday or Saturday last a few of our men, principally Kupapas, left the cusp near Waingengoro, with the intention of capturing horses having a brush with the enemy, or enjoying any other bit of fun that might turn up. During the excursion they fell in with the enemy in considerable force, and a sharp action immediately commenced. Eight Hau-haus were left dead on the field. But from the paucity of men on our side—although we held the field and gained a complete vic tory—the enemy were able to carry off their wounded. The loss upon our ride is, we regret to say, rather severe. The brave Aperhama, a chief of Nguhapu (Ensign N.C.), was shot through both thighs. Two Kupapas were killed; one of them was Wi Pekapeka, who was wounded at the battle of Moutoa, and for his brave conduct there received a gratuity from the Government. One Kupapa, named Piriti, was taken prisoner.— Wanga...
TOOWOOMBA. (From the Chronicle, March 8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
TOOWOOMBA. (From the Chronicle, March 8.) THE TOOWOOBA HOSPITAL.—We understand that the above institution is overcrowded with patients, so much so that on Tuesday the com-&lt;*> mittee determined that there could not be a larger number admitted—there being then 53 males and 4 females—besides 2 males and 1 female receiving out-door relief. On Tuesday two were discharged, md yesterday one was discharged and two were admitted. A large proportion of the patients are men who have been working on this railway. Mm. Fbaskb, omi of ova Nxw Aranmor. —This gentleman having been pleased to make a false statement in the Council Chamber, on Saturday last, just previous to being sworn in, we deem it our duty, knowing such to be the case, now that he occupies a responsible public position, to state the circamstsnws as they occurred, and would scarcely fail being known to at least one-half the company who at tempted to listen to his remarks at the banquet given in November last to the Min...
CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, February 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, Feb- &nbsp; ruary 24.) THE settlement at the Copper Mine has long labored under the obvious disadvantage of pos- sessing no name. We have waited long enough, and now take the unusual course of stating that until further notice the new township will be referred to in these columns as "Copperfield." &nbsp; Several parties who have visited town during the week from the northward inform us that there is no rush to the Suttor, the point of attrac- tion being the Fanning River, some ninety miles beyond the Suttor. There is not a scrap of de- &nbsp; finite intelligence, however, except that a man &nbsp; has claimed the reward offered by the people of &nbsp; Townsville for a payable gold-field within reach &nbsp; of their port. We have good reason to exspect &nbsp; that these gilded reports emanate from Cleve- land Bay land jobbers. The rain which fell on the 16th instant set Wolfang Creek runni...
BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
BOWEN. WE have files from Bowen to February 24. The following extracts are from the Port Denison Times :— &nbsp; We are glad to be able to state that Mr. Macleod has let on liberal terms to four China- men a piece of land on the river Don, for the purpose of making a market garden. We have no doubt that they will succeed well and make a good thing of it, and that their success will stimulate others to follow their example, and perhaps be the means of introducing the thin edge of the wedge of agricultural, enterprise into &nbsp; the Kennedy District. We hear also that Mr. Marks, of Herbert-street, is negotiating with a &nbsp; Port Curtis gardener for a constant supply of cabbages by the Rangatira. This will be a great boon to Bowen if, as he expects, he is able to supply food cabbages at something like a &nbsp; reasonable rate. At the same time it is by no means desirable that we should be dependent on Port Curtis or any other port for our vegetables, ...
The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XVI. UNDER THE TROPIC OF CAPRICORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 10 March 1866
The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XVI. UNDER THE TROPIC OF CAPRICORN. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. NEXT morning, when Morley ventured up, everything was dripping wet; on deck and aloft, all bore cheerless evidence of a rough night that had passed. The Princess had little canvas spread, for the sea was rising still; the fore, main, and mixtm topsails were taken off her, and ere long she was speeding before the wind and sea under a close-reefed foresail and storm staysail. Morrison, one of the most powerful men on board, with another grim old seaman, named Noah Gawthrop, whose weather-beaten visage re sembled nothing on land or sea but a knot on a gnarled oak tree, were at the wheel, and it was with the utmost difficulty they could keep the helm, so heavily did breaker after breaker poop the ship. Though heavy, the wind was fair for the Princess, but it bore her away from the shores of Britian was Morley's first and regretful idea. No other craft was in sight, and the grey sky imparted ...
