A TRIP TO ROMA. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

A TRIP TO ROMA. (COMMUNICATED.) PETER SIMPLE. BEING one of those stones that gather no moss from constant motion, in keeping with my character I had some time since made up my mind for a trip to the metropolis of the far west. On examining mj finance?, I found out that, as usual, that ever fashionable disease—irapecu niosity—had a strong hold of me, so much so that it would necessitate me walking the greater portion of my journey, or, as poor Paddy hat it— When we are rich we rule in eluilsen; When we lire i>oor, we wnlk by jabea; So nothing daunted, armed with a great coat, pint pannikin, a portion of tea and sugar, and beef and bread, 1 com menced my journey, the first portion of which passed on* pleasantly enough, on board the Emu; then as far as Urondchester (what a uame) by the celebrated narrow-guage line; in truth I hardly liked to trust myself inside the rarriage until I noticed a well-known Darling Downs squatter strut up to a first-class, and, cheroot in mouth, unconcer...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. March 16. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. March 16. ANOTHER week has passed, and we are unable to report the slightest improvement in things in this district. The clouds have several times during the past week assumed a very hopeful aspect, but they hare cleared off again without tearing at the least memento of their presence. Yesterday, dense black masses of cloud passed orer from 8.8. E. At times the horizon was completely orercast, and there was erery hope of a heary rain. It all cleared away, however, in the night, and the cliange in the temperature lead* to the conclusion that we shall not bare it, at any rate, immediately. Should it be long delayed, we know not what will be the conse quences. Feed and water for cattle are now both scarce, and another month's dry weather would leave little hope of grass for winter feed, as it will then be too cold for muoh growth. The crop* planted are failing fast, the potatoes rotting in the ground with dry rot, aud the corn baring enough to do to f...

BALD HILLS AND PINE RIVER. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

BALD HILLS AND PINE RIVER. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) SEEING you have correspondents everywhere else, I think it necessary that the beauties, ad-<*> vantages, faults, and failings of the district sur-<*> rounding the Bald Hills should be represented in your columns. some of your readers, and especially those of an official cast, may be at a loss to know whereaway the district in question is situated, and what the people there located do for a ' tiring. I will at once enlighten them. The roai to tho Bald Hills run* past the Acclimati sation Society's grounds, to Kedron Brook. After crossing the brook, which even at present runs with beautiful water, the road through the bush could scarcely be missed. The distance from Brisbane is usually set down at twelre miles, which I consider very near the correct .mark. Many improvement* hare been made during the past year in the first part of the road. Beautiful residences exist all along, in terspersed with snug cottag...

SANDGATE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

SANDGATE. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) SINCE my last communication nothing of im-<*> portance has occurred here. I might furnish you with a long list of fashionable arrivals and departures, as well as "approaching marriages in high life;" but this, as brother Jonathan would say, would be going it too fast, so I sliall reserve such interesting news till you hare set apart a special column for fashionable intelligence and court news. As I write I see a boat coming from the ship ping and making for the beach opposite the Brighton Hotel; it is some of the captains, I presume, who wish to get up to town by the coach which learcs here at 4 p.m. It would be ; a great convenience for ship masters and others if there was any sort of a pier, where small boats could come alongside, and it would be . well worth the attention of the owners of pro- ] perty and the inhabitant* here to make a safe ', Unding place at their own expense, in order to hare direct communication with the shipping...

It is merdy th* art of reading cost, of arm.. It is s specie, of shorthand suited to an age of the world in which reading writing and the stesmpress were unknown.

CHURCH OF ENGLAND, KEDRON BROOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

CHURCH OF ENGLAND, KEDRON BROOK. AN adjourned meeting of members of the Church of England residing in the neighborhood of Kedron Brook was held on Saturday last, at 6 o'clock, at Mr. Colton's, opposite the church reserve, Bowen Bridge Boad. The meeting was well attended; his Honor Mr. Justice Lutwjchr took the chair. The hon. secretary (Mr. Barlce) then produced a plan for the proposed church, presented by the Colonial Architect, and stated that Mr. Tiffin had been kind enough to profter his further professional assistance in carrying out the work. The plan, which appeared to meet with general approval, was that of a rery neat and simple structure, not unlike the building lately erected a* a national school on the Bowen Bridge Boad, to be constructed of hardwood, and affording accommodation for 190 persons. Mr. Stanley suggested that as a huge num ber of briekmakers had lately settled in the neigh borhood, it might be desirable to construct the church of brick instead of timber. He ...

MODERN FEMALE DRESS. (From the Saturday Review, December 2.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

MODERN FEMALE DRESS. (From the Saturday Review, December 2.) IF appropriateness is the general charac-<*> teristic of what we term barbarian costume, inappropriateness must be allowed to be the special characteristic of civilised dress. It is perhaps hardly possible to trace this divergence from common sense to its fint causes. It may be that in the early Nor man period, in the days of the Plantagenets, and again in the days of the Tudors, there lived arrogant and domineering dressmakers who looked on their fellow-beings as dolls created for the express purpose of being dressed, and forced their customers to en case their bodies in garments framed, not according to the will of the wearer, but of the maker. It may be that to the continu ance of this tyranny were due the " gorget" of the time of Edward IL, the " horned head-dress" of Henry V., and the ruffs and fardingales of Queen Elizabeth, as likewise the hoop petticoats of the first Georgian period. This despotism se...

Extracts from the Papers. THE LATE EXPLOSION IN SYDNEY. AN inquiry was commenced yesterday, before the Honorable A. Campbell, Professor Smith, and Captain M'Lerie, at the Chamber of Com-<*> merce, Exchange, into the cause of the late disastrous explosion in Bridge-street. Mr. Campbell occupied the chair.

CONDENSED MILK. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

CONDENSED MILK. ON an article which would be invaluable to us were some spirited party to take its production in hand, we find the following in the Scientific American: — Most American citizens hare seen this article retailed from carts at their doors. In appear ance it iB a thick creamy-look ing substance, of the consistency of molasses, which is afterwards reduced to suitable thinness by the addition of •water. The advantaged derived from conden sing the milk aro that it keeps sweet much longer, and is perfectly pure. The last is not the least desirable quality, for tho consumer adds as much or as little water as he chooses. We have used this milk in our family in large quantities for a number of years, and find it a very great convenience 03 well as a luxury. For coffee it is far superior to common milk, and for young children suffering with complaints incident to them this condensed milk is invalu able in reepeot of purity ; swillfed, or otherwise impure milk is the last thing t...

The Farm & the Garden. MARKET-PLACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

The Farm & the Garden. MARKET-PLACES. AFTER raising expectation on tiptoe, by calling for designs, &c., for market build-<*> ings, we trust the Corporation of Brisbane will soon take active steps in the matter. The straits to which the vapidly-increasing number of farmers and others arc put who bring produce to town in getting customers, are frequently painful tv contemplate, especi ally when aware that many persons are in want of those; very articles—all the loss, disappointment, and vexation being caused by want of an adcijinite market-place for the exrhiinge of \\vnn every-day necessary but perishable commodities. Our Ipswich contemporaries, we are glad to see, are be coming active on the important subject of a market-place for their town and dis trict. The Mercury, of this day woek, says, " We have a line reserve in a central posi tion lying idle," while " a large population outside the boundary, hawking from door to door their produce of fruit, veg...

FOUNTAIN'S CAMP. Nothing exte[?]ate, nor set down ought in malice. OTHELLO. (PER FAVOR OF THE QUEENSLANDER) SIR, —I have been in this camp since its formation, and consequently am well acquainted with it. I am also much interested in its moral and spiritual welfare.

Again, as to some receiving only a pound, there is no " sub" > that takes place, nor ptiy ; but there are some ' who only receive a pound—why ? because they j have not wrought for more, and in many in- > stances I hare seen—not even for so much, i Thero are m...
