FATAL ACCIDENT IN THE RIP.—TWO LIVES LOST FROM ON BOARD THE BLACK SWAN. (From the Argus, March 8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866
FATAL ACCIDENT IN THE RIP.—TWO LIVES LOST FROM ON BOARD THE BLACK SWAN. (From the Argus, March 8.) The s.s. Black Swan, the arrival of which has been anxiously looked for since Sunday, steamed into the bay yesterday, shortly after midday, having made, perhaps, one of the stormiest pas- sages which has ever beeii experienced between Launceston and this port. Most unfortunately, too, the voyage has not been unaccompanied with fatal consequences. The Black Swan left Tamar Heads at 6 o'clock on Sunday morning last, and until 4 o'clock in the afternoon I moderate westerly winds were experienced- The wind then biew with increased violence, and freshened into a heavy gale, accompanied with a great deal of rain, and a very high sea running. Captain Woods then bore away for Waterloo Bay, in order to save the horses and other live stock on board. The steamer anchored at 9 o'clock in the evening, and remained under shelter there until 7 o'clock on the following evening, when the wind perceptib...

THE MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866
THE MAIL NEWS. THE telegraphic summary of English and European news which appears in our issue of to-day is the most important that has reached us for many months past. Unfortunately, however, it is invested with painful interest in consequence of the de plorable loss of life by shipwrecks, of which that of the steamship London stands foremost in point of local importance. Exciting as this news must be in all the colonies, it must be of greater intensity in Melbourne, to which port the London was bound, and to which she was designed to convey amongst a large number of pas sengers, many old and influential colo nists. The perils of the deep are never perhaps more fearfully pour trayed than by the helplessness of a dis mantled ship battling w ith the fury of the winds and the waves ; and the appalling nature of the scene, briefly narrated in our telegram, can be so well imagined that a description of it, even were we in a position to give it, would be, under the present circumstances,...

THE DECAY OF LOVE. HERBERT WILLIAMS.

She pawed me with a mournful glance: Alas, the day! How soon dusolret life's romance, If Lore betray. Secal that look of proud disdain! Hot leare me thus—l speak in Tain. Some yean hare fled—we met again, But ah! how changed; In rain she seeks to charm once more The heart estranged. Time—Time, thon changest all—and yet 'Iwere better far we ne'er had met.

USEFUL RECEIPTS. FINE PINE-APPLE MARMALADE.—Take the largest, ripest, and most perfect pine-apples. Pare them, and cut out whatever blemishes you may find. Weigh each pine-apple, balancing the other teak with an equal weight of the beat doable-refined sugar, finely powdered, a* torn*. The white ragar, that is sold ready-powdered, is generally so adulterated with finely pulrerised starch, as to hare Tery fittle strength or sweet nee*, and is, therefore, unfit for sweetmeats, as when mad* with it, they will not keep. Grate the pine-apples on a large dish; using a Urge, coarse grater, and omitting the hard core that goes down the centre of each. Pat the grated pine-apple and the sugar into a pnstTring kettle, mixing them thoroughly. Set it orer a moderate and Tery dear fire, and boil and «*i— it well, stirring it after skimming. After the scum has ceased to appear, stir the marmalade frequently till it is done, which will generally be in an hour and a half after it has come to a boil. ...
