CAPTURE OF KELLY THE BUSHRANGER. (From the Special Correspondent of the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

CAPTURE OF KELLY THE BUSHRANGER. (From the Special Correspondent of the Maitland Mercury.) PATRICK John Kelly, as he is pleased to style himself, who has so recently acquired such an unenviable notoriety by pillaging townships, robbing mails, and committing divers other offences, has at last been neatly bagged, and safely lodged in the watch-house upon this township, by senior constable M'Cabe, of the Walgett police, assisted by troopers Murray and Symonds, and the black tracker. The circamstances connected with his appre hension are as follow :—Daring the past week the police were doing patrol duty in the neigh borhood of Colleraindibri (Earl's public house), some fifty miles from Walgett, and ascertaining that some of the bushranging fraternity were in the rktnity, they determined to reconnoitre retry closely. For a time, however, their efforts were unsuccessful. They then directed their attention to the public house, where they heard that Kelly had been "operating" upon the pecun...

WESLEYAN FOREIGN MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

WESLEYAN FOREIGN MISSIONS. A PUBLIC MEETING in connection with the Wesleyan Foreign Missions was held at the Wesleyan Church, Albert-street, on Friday evening. There was a large attendance. The Rev. W. K. Piddhcotom being called to the chair, ■aid that it was satisfactory to him to be associated with an enterprise such at that to be adranced that evening—the Missionary Society in connection with the Wcsleyan Church. That society wu promoted in the ooloniet for the purpose of spreading the gospel, more particularly in the Feejee and South Sea Islands j but it was connected with the great aud noble mission society at home. Hitherto Queensland, had uot taken any very act ire part iv missionary work, although in the home work it had been zealous and active. That was, of course, laud able ; but he would like to see also the gospel sent out and explained to the heathen. He could state that the Bevds. Messrs. Gaud and Chapman were the first deputation from the society that had Tisited Quee...

CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE LIONS OF ANTWERP. (BY THE SPECIAL COMMISSIONER OF THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

CONTINENTAL EUROPE. THE LIONS OF ANTWERP. (BY THE SPECIAL COMMISSIONER OF THE DAILY TELEGRAPH.) I HAVE been travelling for nearly twenty years, but, with the exception of a swarthy person in Venice, by whom I was once seduced into being, led about, dancing-bear being about, dancing-bear fashion, through the prisons and the pic ture-rooms of the Ducal Palace, I don't think that, until the journey I am now engaged upon, I have ever wittingly availed myself of the services of a profes sional guide, cicerone or valet de place, which is a tacit confession of non-affiliation to the Alpine Club. Were I a member of that amateur Ramoneur Association, I should of course esteem the guides of Chamouni and Zermatt as among my dearest friends, next to my alpenstock. I saw a lady the other day at Calais with an alpenstock, the which struck me as being about as much in place as a puggree at Jersey in November. The middle-aged clergymen, juvenile barristers, and ninnies generally, afflicted with the...

TAHITI. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

TAHITI. WE (S.M. Herald) are in receipt of the Messayer de Tahiti, from the 2nd of December last to the 27th of January, 1866. The Messager of the 33rd December contains a complimentary notice of the circus troupe of Cooke, Zoyara, and Wilson, who left Papioli in the American schooner Alice, for New Zealand, on the 21sfc of that month. Tho newspaper speaks in high terms of that troupe, as being composed of persona who excelled in their pro-, fession, and -who were provided with well-trained animals. Their success at Tahiti had, however, been somewhat interfered with by .the prevalence of rain during the time of their stay in tho Pro tectorate. An important decree of tho Imperial Com missary (Count do la Eoncierc) bearing date the 14th December, 1865, was published in the partie qfficielle of the Messager de Tahiti of the 30fch of December last. This decree gives the force of law to a new and important organi sation of the judicial system at Tahiti. The effect of this change appears ...

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. RECONNOITERING OF THE TROOPS AT OPOTIKI UNDER COLONEL LYONS.—SURPRISE OF THE HAU-HAUS —EIGHT KILLED. By the arrival on the 27th ultimo, of the P.S. Sturt, Captain Fairchild, we have late news from Opotiki and neighborhood. Mr. Gilmer, a passenger by the Sturt, has kindly furnished us with some particulars of the doings of the men under Colonel Lyons, at that place. He says, an expedition consisting of 300 wen started from Opotiki on Saturday, the 10th, under Colonel Lyons. Major George also marched in command of colonial troops and natives, towards Ohiwa, exchanging shots on the way. Here they were joined by Colonel Lyons and the main body of the expedition, who had come on in the Bturt. On the follow ing day the whole force marched up the Ohiwa river, and crossed over to the place occupied by a man named Fox, said to be a deserter from H.M. 65th regiment, who was known to hold communication with the Hau-haus. This was only a short distance away from Wbakatane. ...

THE GOVERNOR OF JAMAICA. (From the Daily Telegraph, November 30.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

THE GOVERNOR OF JAMAICA. (From the Daily Telegraph, November 30.) THE time is not yet ripe, the materials are not yet forthcoming, for an exhaustive criticism and a fair appreciation of the policy pursued by Governor Eyre in Jamaica; but, in framing Eyre Jamaica; but, framing these, we shall be materially assisted by a knowledge of his prerious career. The brief outline of it, which U all that the limit* of our apace permit, will assuredly be read with peculiar interest at the present time. Five-and-twenty yean ago, Sooth Australia, which is now the largest of the fire colonies, seemed practically to be the smallest. On the north it was assumed to be bounded by " Lake Torrcns," a rast tract of mud and shifting «»*d, at times under water, at others a mere swamp, which is now divided by geographers into Lace Torrens, Lake Gregory, and Lake Blanche. To the north-westward and westward stretched hideous deserts, barring all progress. South ward, Flinders had surreyed in hi* ship the whol...

COLLECTING AND PRESERVING PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

COLLECTING AND PRESERVING PLANTS. THE following interesting letter on the above subject was addressed to the editor of the Wellington Independent of February 13:— Sir,—As many persons, at this "Exhibition Season," may wish to dry and preserve speci mens of fruits, flowers, timber, and other plants, ferns, seaweeds, Ac, I think the following in structions towards forming a Herbarium, chiefly compiled from directions issued by the trustees of the British Museum some years since, may prove useful. It is a much simpler process than is generally imagined by those unpractised in it, and travellers have often been deterred from col lecting specimens by the timo and trouble ro quired for preparing them in the way that has been recommended. The chief circumstances to be attended to, are to preserve specimens of plants in such a manner, that tho moisture may be quickly absorbed, the colors as much as pos sible preserved, and such a degree of pressure given to them as they may not curl up in t...

THE PRITCHARD POISONING CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

THE PRITCHARD POISONING CASE. WE take the following report from the Glas-<*> gow Daily Herald of December 22. The occa-<*> sion reported is that of the presentation of a very valuable testimonial to Dr. James Pater- son, as a mark of respect and sympathy with him in the difficult position in which he was placed in connection with the late trial of Pritchard. Most of our readers are acquainted with the main facts of the case:— The proceedings were commenced by drink ing the health of the Queen and the Royal family, after which Mr. George Mitchell (late Bailie), who occu pied the chair, thanked the meeting for the honor of being called on to preside on the occa sion. He thought they would all agree with him that the community owed a deep debt of gratitude to Dr. Paterson for bringing to justice one of the greatest criminals that ever disgraced the form of humanity. When Dr. Paterson was called to see Mrs. Taylor while on her death bed, he need not remind th...

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, March 13.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, March 13.) What will become of the Press of Queensland after the notice in the Government Gazette of Saturday it is hard to say. Deprived of the valuable assistance of the members of the Civil Service as contributors, the best thing most of us can do perhaps will be to shut up altogether. If tbo above elegant and perspicuous extract it a fair specimen of the literary talent of the Barnacles, the public will indeed be loser* by baring them confined to their foolscap and red tape. What is the meaning of an attempt to engage in contributing ? and now can Mr. Mac- Lenzie saj that there is no vacancy in the de partment of Colonial Secretary when il is abun dantly erident that a schoolmaster is wanted '■ The Mayor (Mr. Murphy), accompanied by Alderman M'Donald and the Town Surreyor, made a preliminary tour of hupection yesterday of the country lying between the mouth of Iron pot Gully, on the Bremer Biver, and the mouth of the Coal Gully, on the Briwbu...

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 14. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 14. THE dry weather still continues; although we have had repeated symptoms of a change, these continually pass away, and dust and drought are the leading characteristics of our weather leading table. The corn generally appears to be ripen ing satisfactorily, and we have heard none of the complaints prevalent in other districts as to the failure in the expected yield; the preparatory ploughing for the oat and wheat crops are pro gressing rapidly and favorably, but a good Making rain would be a material benefit. So far as the loosely collected returns can give us informal ion, the number of acres under cultivation in this district during the past year were 2028, showing an increase of 428 acres on the previous year. Calculating a corresponding increase in the farms already under cultivation, and taking into consideration the settlements on the new reserve (the cultivated portions of whioh, according to tho terms of purchase, will give an...

WARWICK. (From the Argue, March 14.) ROYAL AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY OF QUEEN-<*> LAND. —A meeting of the committee of the above society was held on Monday, at the Secretary's Rooms, Albion-street, for the pur- pur- I pose of drawing up a programme for the forth j coming show, which, we are informed, is to take place on the 27th of June next, in the ! society's grounds on the north side of the river. The members present were Messrs. C. H. Green ! (hi the chair), John Deuchar, John Watts, Ed j ward Marlay, and diaries Clark, and from the fact that more than one gentleman from the Drayton district was present it is cvi dent that a spirited interest is being taken in the eudearor to carry out the views and intentions of this truly useful society. The business gone through was the appointing of judges for the various classes of sheep, horses, cattle, 4c, also making a few alterations ia the prize schedule, as well as appointing the day upon which the show is to Ibe held.

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Friday, March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Friday, March 9. DURING the six days since my last—for most of which period I have been hors de combat — several topics of exciting interest have occupied attention—the two most prominent being the beiug mysterious Bridge-street explosion, and the , impending fate of the unhappy men who lie in Darlinghurst gaol,.under sentence of execution next Monday week. As to the explosion, as it occurred on Sunday last, and you have had several arrivals since, the main particulars will be already known to your readers. The effects created by the shock lire positively astounding, for while some houses nearly adjoining have escaped almost utterly unscathed, others, at a distance, have had their windows shattered and been otherwise damaged. The colums>of dust and fragments of destroyed articles rose to high that some of the pieces of chipped wood and splinters were picked up in Princess-street, and the whole sky was darkened as far as that direction. There is no...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

NEW SOUTH WALES. THE Empire of the 10th inst., in an article of that day, refers in the following terms to a mo-<*> tion introduced by Mr. Forster in regard to the Anglo-Australian Mail Service:— In a recent issue we published the official correspondence which had passed between-Mr. Parkes and Mr. M'Culloch, the Chief Secretary of "Victoria, on the subject. In short, it w.as I not better known hi this colony that the Panama project was in full train than it was that popular opinion-favored the transfer of the Galle con tract from the Peninsular Company to local contractors. And thus Mr. Forster was able to -shape his motion in a manner that does credit to his ingenuity. It is as follows :— " (1.) That this House is of opinion—That . in order to promote economy in the public ex penditure, as well as to afford facilities for the employment of colonial steamers hi the carriage of ocean mails by such modification of existing or intended- arrangements. for that purpose as m...

TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

TASMANIA. DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN.-A figure so fa- miliar to the oldest residents of Tasmania that it seemed to be one of its tutelar genii has at length passed away. Our obituary records the death of "Old John Dell" which occurred yes-     terday morning. Mr. Dell had attained the remarkable age of 102 years and 4 months, hav-   ing been born in the latter part of 1763. In his young days—a period almost so remote as to raise a doubt whether he ever was young— he was a soldier, and in 1788 accompanied his regiment, the 102nd, to Botany Bay, in the   first fleet that proceeded to that little-known but greatly-dreaded place. The deceased also took part in the memorable arrest, in 1808, of the Governor, Captain William Bligh, previ- ously commander of the Bounty, the crew of which mutinied, and sent him adrift in an open boat. The Governor was forwarded to England as a prisoner, and the deceased, Mr. Dell, was one of the guard who had ...

IMPRESSIONS OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 17 March 1866

IMPRESSIONS OF VICTORIA. THE following letter, which is one of a series published by the Melbourne Argus, will be interesting to many of our readers who have visited Victoria:— Among the beat excursions within reason able reach of Melbourne is that to the Fern-tree Gully, in the Dandenong Ranges. A three hoars' drive, if your cattle be good and jour driver expert in dodging among the trees for the last few miles of the journey and after you get off made roads, will take you to an inn, " not rich or splendid, bat still in comfortable case," that has recently been erected for the accommodation of tourist*. It is possible to go on for another mile or so upon wheels; but the road is rough. Most people I fancy, will be best pleased with their policy afterwards if they begin their pedestrianism from the inn, the establishment of which will certainly prove very convenient, as previously the whole ex* pedition had to be accomplished in one day, which made rather too much of it, except for T...

LIFE IN AMERICA. (From the Correspondent of the Daily Tele graph.) Washington, Dec. 7. IN the whole history of the American Government no message has been looked forward to with such intense anxiety as the present. During the summer the President pursued a course, the conservatism of which could not be doubted. He freely pardoned the prominent Confederates, and showed no special hostility even to those who were guilty of being worth over $20,000. He seemed much pleased with the steps taken by the Southern Conventions to restore their relations with the Govern ment, and published approving telegrams to the provisional governors. " All went merry as a marriage bell." The Radicals gnashed their teeth, but guarded their utterances. Meantime the National Union party, skilfully avoiding the rock of negro suffrage, and professing to support Mr. Johnson, kept their party together, and carried the fall elections. The effect upon the President's course was at once visible, though no principle...

SUICIDE OF THE HON. PRESTON KING, U.S. SENATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

SUICIDE OF THE HON. PRESTON KING, U.S. SENATOR. LIFE is sweet; but men may turn from it at times and welcome infinity. A kind, genial gentleman, whose friends were numerous—who had lived three-score peaceful and honored years—a Senator — the companion and friend of the President of the United States—the envied politician of America—went down to the Hudson River one day and drowned himßelf. Men have committed self-slaughter before. Re morse, disappointed love, care, weariness of life, chagrin, poverty, shame, have in duced mortals to dispose of their own fate by sending their bodies back to ashes, and carrying an appeal from destiny to God. This man had no such care. Of all men in America he was the one to live. Men spoke of him as the one in ten thousand to whom life was a summer dream. He bad power, wealth, political influence. Men went to him and wafted incense, and asked to be moved hither and thither as though they were so many chessmen. This was the world's view. But now, when ...
