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

DALBY. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) ON Tuesday, March 6, the inhabitants of Dalby gave a grand dinner to our neighbor the Hon. J.P. Bell, the Colonial Treasurer. The banquet was held at Mr. Brown's new Victoria bauquct j Hotel, and did Tery great credit to tlie good ' management of Mr. and Mrs. Brown; in fact, j in the opinion of more than one person who has attended the public dinners in Dal by, it was superior to most—second to none. The clmir was occupied by J. Sidney, Esq., J.P., on whose right was tho guest of the evening; on his left his honor our new District Court Judge; the' vice-chair was filled by Gk W.

THE ARRIVAL OF THE SULTANA IN HERVEY'S BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

THE ARRIVAL OF THE SULTANA IN HERVEY'S BAY. The Maryborough Chronicle, of March 3, has the following with reference to the arrival of this vessel:— By the Leichhardt, on Wednesday, February 28, intelligence reached Maryborough that the Sultana had arrived at Hervey's Bay. On the following morning Mr. Sheridan, immigration agent; Mr. Davidson, J.P., and Dr. Ward, health officer, as commissioners, and Mr. Travis, agent for the vessel, proceeded by the Florence Irving to hold the usual official inquiry into the state of the vessel, and health of the immi grants previous to binding them. Owing to the presence of sickness on board, and that seventy-eight deaths had occurred on the voy age, only the Health Officer went on board the vessel, and full particulars of the voyage could not be obtained. For the following items   we are indebted to the courtesy of Mr. Sheridan:—The Sultana left Liverpool on the 5th of November, with 558 passengers, of which 13 were single men, 77 sin...

THE CRUISE OF THE PLATYPUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

THE CRUISE OF THE PLATYPUS. This steamer arrived at the Queen's Wharf on February 9, off a cruise from the Northern Ports. This is by no means an unusual occurrence with this vessel, but her present voyage is invested with more than an ordinary amount of interest,     as, during a considerable portion of the time   she has been absent, she has been engaged in     seeking for persons supposed to be suffering the hardships of shipwreck. Happily, however, her anxiety for the fate of unknown sufferers, which led to her being despatched on her errand of mercy. The subjoined narrative of her cruise we have been enabled to compile   from the ship's log, by the courtesy of Captain C airncross and Mr Twine, the chief   officer. It commences with the date of her     leaving Rockhamption in search of the sur     vivors of the burning ship seen off Lady ...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 17, 1866. THE Commissioners appointed by the Queensland Government to prepare for the Intercolonial Exhibition in Melbourne, and the National Exhibition in Paris, are steadily progressing with their arduous undertaking, and are likely to receive a gratifying amount of support The diffi culty of the want of a suitable building in which to exhibit the various artioles in Brisbane, previously to their being forwarded to Melbourne, lias uot yet been overcome ; but there is no doubt that the exertions of the Commissioners in this respect will be successful. A number of gentlemen have responded to the published invitations of the Commissioners, and have promised to prepare and forward specimens of various productions of the colony. There will be a good exhibit of the different kinds of timber, both for useful and ornamental purposes, and some specimens of granite, also of the beautiful marble, which is found in the neighborhood of Gladstone. Some samples ...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XIX. ETHEL AMID THE ATLANTIC ISLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XIX. ETHEL AMID THE ATLANTIC ISLES. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. UNLIKE the Princess, which, as we have shown, accomplished a most prosperous voyage, the Hermione encountered a series of head wind, and hard gales; she had several of her spars carried away, and even before skirting the Bay of Biscay had to put in requisition her spare fbre-topinast and topsail yards. This was considered by all on board a singularly unlucky beginning, as Captain Phillips said, all the more so, that a pair of sparrows had built their nest in the fore-cross trees, during the time that the ship lay in the London-dock, and had finished it, too, unde terred by all the noise and bustle around them. This was considered so good an omen, that the event was actually recorded in the ship's log; biscuit crumbs were scattered in the tops for their support, and orders were given not to disturb the birds, if possible, so they went to sea with the ship. So the female sat upon her eggs,...

BARNUM ON HUMBUGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

BARNUM ON HUMBUGS. The Humbugs of the World. By P.T. Barnum. (Hotten.) THE Humbugs of the World by the greatest Humbug in the World! Here is a promising title-page. Here is at last the right man in the right place. We have so long been expecting the advent of the true author, the coming man for whom so many generations of readers and critics have sighed, who should write on the subject which he really understood. Coleridge said that the dullest man might make an inter eating book if he would give his own experience, and diflose the secrets of his own heart. That saying might be taken as a prophecy of Barnum. For when we opened his book and saw the first page, " Humbugs of the World: L Personal Beminiseeneea," we felt that the secrets of Bar num were about to be revealed. The absence of table of contents and index kept up the illusion. It was not till we had gone some way into the volume that we found its real significance. In i stead of revealing the secrets of his vocation, Barnum ...

BANK STORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

BANK STORIES. THERE is much of the romance of history in the origin of some of the great private banking-<*> houses still existing in our days—though all more or less threatened with destruction by the giant of joint-stock enterprise. The origin, among others, of the hoiue of Jones, Lloyd, and Co. wh very curious. Mr. Lewia Lloyd, the founder of the house, father of the present Lord Overstate, began hi* career as a Welsh dissenting minister in a small chapel at Man* Chester, the congregation of which included a Mr. Jones, a sort of half-banker, half manufac turer. In addition to Mr. Jones there was a young Miss Jones who attended the sermons of the Rev. Mr. Lloyd, and, as often happens, the maiden found the orations to eloquent that the fell in lore with the preacher. The affection was responded to by the minister, and the two fearing the purse-proud merchant would nerer consent to the tmhalliamt*, were privately mar ried- Of course, when the affair became known to Mr....

INTERNAL LIFE IN BOKHARA. (From the Argosy, No. I.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

INTERNAL LIFE IN BOKHARA. (From the Argosy, No. I.) IN the morning—I mean by the term before sunrise, as by religious compulsion every man is an early riser—one encounters people, half-<*> asleep and half-awake and half-dressed, hurry- hurry ing one by one to the mosques ; any delay in arriving not only entails reproach, but is con sidered as meriting punishment. The stir made by these devotees in running through the streets rouses the houseless dogs from their lairs in the out-of-the-way corners or upon the heaps of dung. These famished, hornd-looking animals —yet contrasted with their Stambouli brethren, presented a princely appearance—are crying proofs of the miserly nature of the Bokhanots. The poor creatures first struggle to rear their gaunt frames, mere skin and bone, from sleep; then they rub their rough, hairless carcases against the mouldering walls, and this toilet at an end, they start upon their hunt for a dejediter a la fourchette, for the most port made ...

AT MARSEILLES. (From "A Trip to Barbary by a Roundabout Route." By George Augustus Sala.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

AT MARSEILLES. (From "A Trip to Barbary by a Roundabout Route." By George Augustus Sala.) THE Marseillais himself very much re-<*> sembles a roaring lion. He is like the Dougal Creature made swarthy in a Southern sun—like a Nottingham rough with a gousse a"ail in his button-hole. His big head is covered with a shock of tufted black hair, his large black eyes flash, his square white teeth gleam. He is always clenching his fists. He rages furiously, and continually imagines a vain thing. He swears awfully. Fortunately for the peace of the world, he rarely drinks anything stronger than thin wine or sugar and water. If he did, there would be murder every hour in the day. Pass a cabaret or a j cafe", and the howling of Bedlam smites ! your tympanum. Innumerable bulls of Basban seem to be lowing in disconcert. Look in, and you will see scores of angry men, their eyes starting from their heads, shaking iheir fists at each other, and launching forth volleys of execrations. The...

ABOUT HUSBANDS. BY JOHN G. SAXE. "A man is, in general, better pleased when he has a good dinner upon his table than when his wife speaks Greek."—Sam Johnson JOHNSON was right. I don't agree to all The solemn dogmas of the rough old stager; But Tery much approre what one may call The minor morals of the M Ursa Major." Johnson was right. Although some mn adore Wisdom in woman, and with learning cram her, There isn't one in ten but thinks far more Of his own grub thai his spouse's grammar. I know it is the greatest shame in hie ; But who among them (awe, perhaps, myself), Beturning hungry home, but asks his wife What beef, not books, she has upon herahetf. Though Greek and Latin be the lady's boast, They're little rained by her loving mate; The kind of tongue that husbands relish most Is modern, boiled, and sored upon a plate. Or if, as fond ambition may command, Some home-made Terse the happy matron show him. What mortal spouse bat from her dainty hand Would sooner see a pudding than...

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAMS. TOOWOOMBA. March 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

INTERCOLONIAL TELEGRAMS. TOOWOOMBA. March 13. Mr. Frederick Bauer, the principal German agriculturist here, died very suddenly last night. It appears that he had been working all day, and was apparently in good health. At 6 o'clock he returned home and called for   some tea. After partaking of it, he laid his   head on the sill of the window and shortly   afterwards expired. Dr. Tracy was sent for im- mediately, and on his arrival pronounced life to be extinct. The cause of death was the rupture of one of the arteries of the heart. The death of Mr. Bauer is regarded as a great loss to the agriculturists of Toowoomba, as he was most zealous in advancing their interests and demonstrating the capabilities of the district. March 14. The District Court Sittings terminated last evening. The remains of the late Mr. Bauer were buried to-day. The funeral was the largest yet known in this town. It was attended by the   representatives of all...

THE ORANGE IN NEW SOUTH WALES. BY A MEMBER OF THE Q.H. AND A.S. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

THE ORANGE IN NEW SOUTH WALES. BY A MEMBER OF THE Q.H. AND A.S. I HAVE often wondered if our society would ever drop into the groove for which it was established. In other places such institutions do a deal of good in dissemi- nating information to those engaged, or about to engage in the labors of the farm i or garden, and surely there is scope enough i for such work here. Our society seems i satisfied with a show or two in the year, { after which it disappears without, I fear, leaving a mark behind. At all events, we I are told nothing about the means by which the specimens exhibited are produced. You will be happy to learn that other ' societies are not so apathetic. A friend j has sent me a paper [&. M. Herald] con taining an account of a meeting of the X. S. W. Horticultural Society. At that meeting the subject of orange , cultivation was discussed, and from the i report enclosed, I ara sure many of your | readers will be enabled to gather valuable I information. -The c...

THE MARIBYRNONG STUD. As some action has been taken by the sport-<*> ing community of Brisbane in reference to the purchase of a portion of Mr. Hurtle Fisher's celebrated Maribyrnong stud of racehorses, we reprint the following article, by " Pegasus/ which appeared in a late number of Belft Life in Btidiiey: — The breaking up of the Maribyrnong stud, and the retirement from the turf of Mr. Hurtle Fisher, must be looked upon a* events of no small import bj the racing men of Australia. In the formation of the stud, in the first in stance, a much larger sum of money was laid oat than erer before was spent at one time upon one colonial breeding establishment; and it is matter of no small regret that untoward erects hare prerented those profits being realised which every man at least hopes for in the pur suit of his favorite hobby. At the onset every thing augured favorably. The mares, it was universally allowed, were well chosen; Mr. Fisher did not confine himself to price...
