BLACK-MAIL IN GREECE. (From the Times, December 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
BLACK-MAIL IN GREECE. (From the Times, December 20.) BRIGANDAGE is looking up in Greece. The King of the Mountains has just been able to add handsomely to the balance at his banker's. Many a needy functionary, perhaps even a perhaps deputy here and there, must wish they had his lack. Three English gentlemen hare been neatly caught, and £1000 apiece extracted from them. This would be a handsome prize in Italy; in Greece, where money goes still far ther, it is magmftcent. As the lore of adven tnre and the veneration for classical antiquity bring wealthy Englishmen to the land of lost gods and godlike men, the calling of the Slept promises to take a leading position in the industry of the country. It appears that Lord John Herrey, the Hon. Mr. Strutt, a son of Lord Belper, and Mr. Cooro, were travelling in the province of Livadia, and were captured about ten miles from Dragomestro, on the west coast. Mr. Coore was detained as hostage, and the other two gentlemen sent to Patras. After s...
IN MEMORIAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
IN MEMORIAM. "Two hundred lost, and only nineteen saved:" "The Hannah More gone down, with all her hands." "Four hundred vessels wrecked on Europe's shores:" Sure never such disastrous tale of woe Was heard from one small corner of this earth, Enacted in the space of one abort month! "Two hundred lost, and only nineteen tared ." Xot one allowed to buy his chance of life For all his worldly wealth—for aoine have right To enter that frail boat, the rest must stay. And wait despairingly their certain doom, watching the death, which all mutt share, approach With giant strides. Each gust of wind that blows Bellows aloud to them their funeral dirge: Each gulping wave a mighty sepulchre Soon to eugulph them all; the foaming crest Their common winding-sheet: the aky their pall ■ The shattered Teasel symbolizing forth llow weak this world to help iv time of need. Watch on, brave souU! unselfUh to the last. For not one of you all, in that sad hour. Sought to preserve himself at others' risk, ...

Correspondence. O.B.-No communication which has appeared in any other journal can be inserted in the Queenslander. Your letter is, therefore, de-&lt;*> clined. F. Boiar.—Our calendar of field and garden operations for the ensuing month will, as usual, be prepared for and published in the last number of the current month (only). We will endeavor to answer your query in the calendar. IsQinxKß.—We do noi advise you to venture on sugar growing without more capital. In answer to your qnestion we eaa only say thai they used to hare windmills to turn the machinery for crushing the canes. We are quit* unable to say whether they are cheaper than steam engines. CnVMCUMUS.— We cannot say what detains Dr. Tufnell so long in England. By the February mail, we were informed that he was busily employed raising subscriptions to sup port missionaries in Queensland. It is probably his design to furnish funds to Bishop Pattison, to establish a missionary centre in Northern Queensland. St. Pa...
DENILIQUIN STOCK REPORT. Friday evening, March 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
DENILIQUIN STOCK REPORT. Friday evening, March 9. Summer has evidently broken up, and we ex-&lt;*> pect no more of the hot, windy, and dusty days and sultry nights which prevailed for the last four or five mouths. The summer of '66 will long be remembered in Biverioa as one of the most disagreeable to man and disastrous to stock. But the worst anticipations have not been realised. In Southern Biverina the losses in stock have not been so great; this is to be attributed to the fact that most of the runs were not overstocked, and that there were not a very large quantity of old sheep and cattle here. The division and subdivision of the runs south of the Murrumbidgee has brought every nook and corner into use, and as large sums have been spent in providing water for the stock, to these circumstances may be attributed the moderation in losses from drought. The expe rience of the past season cannot fail to teach the squatters of the saltbush country that they may safely go on ...

FRANCE AND ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
FRANCE AND ENGLAND. THINGS have gone so smoothly between England and France since the conclusion of the Commercial Treaty that it seems as if we had nearly forgotten the wide and almost boundless difference of manners, customs, laws, politics, and traditions which separates the two races that live on the opposite sides of the British Channel. The Governments of England and France have indeed not been wholly exempt from those discrepancies whftt naturally arise from time to time in the transaction of great affairs ; but we had certainly cherished the belief that the two nations were gradually assimilating to each other in many things, and, where such tion was impossible, were learning to make allowance for each other, and trying to regard their affairs from a broader and less prejudiced point of view. It does, therefore, we confess, grate somewhat harshly on our ears to be told suddenly, and, so far as we know, without any preliminary remonstrance, that the Extra dition Treaty which ...
NITRO-GLYCERINE OR GLONOINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
NITRO-GLYCERINE OR GLONOINE. THE following interesting letter on the above compound, written by Mr. J.S. Norrie, is published in the S. M. Herald:- As considerable interest attaches itself to this compound at the present moment, from the circumstance of the recent explosion in Bridge street, it may not be uninteresting to the great bulk of your readers to put them in powe—ion of some slight history of this preparation, deduced from the observation* of many scien tific men, who unceasingly work for their fellow men and their country's good. In 1847, when chemist* were intent on the production of gun cotton, M. Sotaeromade known the fact that glycerine, when treated with a mixture of sulphuric and nitric acids, yielded a similar compound, which he described as an oily liquid, heavier than water, in which menstruum it wa* almost insoluble, although readily dissolved by alcohol and ether. Accord ing to this author the smallest quantity of it was sufficient to produce a most violent head...
A DAY OF HUMILIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
A DAY OF HUMILIATION. THE following letter, urging the necessity of setting aside a day of humiliation and of prayer to God to avert the dire calamity to closely threatening this country, has been sent to us for publication. Believing it will find • response in the heart of every reader, we submit the let ter without comment :— The lengthened drought is becoming daily more and more serious, not only to the farmers whose crops are perishing, and to cattle owners whose flocks are dying, bat also to the inhabitants of the town, whose empty tanks compel them to use, at all risks, such water as they can get. The evil is mereasing each day at an increased ratio, and in a very short time rain, if it does come, will have arrived too late to be of very great benefit to the country. Meanwhile, the prospect of rain seems to be diminishing rather than otherwise. Southerly winds blow up heavy clouds, bat to no pur pose. It doesn't rain when it should. We comment upon this state of things freely ...
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT. THE following is the report of the capital punishment commission, as finally agreed to:— TO THE QUEEN'S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. We, your Majesty's commissioners, appointed ~" to inquire into the provisions and operation of the laws now in force in the United Kingdom, under and by virtue of which the punishment of death may be inflicted upon persons convicted -of certain crimes, and also into the manner in which capital sentences are carried into execu tion, and to certify to your Majesty under our hands and teals, or under the hands and seals •of any five or more of us, our several proceed ings in the premises, and at the same time to report to your Majesty our opinion whether -any and what alteration is desirable in such 'laws or any of them, or in the manner in which such sentences are carried into •execution," humbly report as follows:— _ 1. We have been occupied a considerable time in taking evidence upon the questions re ferred to us. Many witnesses have bee...
THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. NOTES ON PASSING EVENTS. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, March 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. NOTES ON PASSING EVENTS. (From the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) Auckland, March 6. FROM Taranaki, our latest news is by no means so satisfactory as of late. The effects of General Chute's march have not, it would seem, been all good. The natives were cowed and scattered by him in his advance, and their crops and settlements utterly ruined; but assuredly sSjhey could not be said to be subdued, as they Vwould not fight. Unfortunately, the usual difficulty was felt in drawing a distinction between friends (Friendly Moories) and foes, and about equal disasters seem to have attended each party. The consequence is, that a good many people who called themselves, and were 'Called by others, Friendly Natives, have gone •over to the enemy. This is serious, not so much on account of the numbers who have joined the enemy, as because the defection of a party at all at this time shows how unreasoning the resistance is likely to be. So far as I can judgo, the war at Wan...
