HOSPITAL ON PETRIE TERRACE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
HOSPITAL ON PETRIE TERRACE. ON Tuesday evening a public meeting was held at the Baptist Chapel, Petrie Terrace, to consider the best means to be adopted to secure the immediate removal of the Fever Hospital from that locality. The building wa3 crowded with an enthusiastic audience, who unmistakably testified their interest in the proceedings. Alderman Jkays occupied the chair, and introduced the subject of the meeting by reading the adrertisement by which it had been called, and called upon the mover of the first resolution to do so. Mr. E. Hookkb said, the subject that had called them together that night was important, and one which demanded of them their serious consideration and prompt action. He stated that having himself written to the committee of the hospital on the subject, and reoeired the most curt reply, he concluded that no hope was to be expected in that quarter; he there fore saw nothing for it but to carry the matter to higher quarters, and he doubted not that the mat...
NEW ZEALIND OF 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
NEW ZEALIND OF 1865. THROUGH the courtesy of Messrs. Raff and Warner, we have been afforded an opportunity of examining the Jurors' report and awards on the Queensland exhibits to the New Zealand Exhibition of lost year. The exhibits are not numerous, but are interesting, a* all the article* shown possess considerable mercantile value, and may one day swell the list of Queensland's exports. The subjoined extract* speak for themselves as to the nature of the exhibits. Sub-class B.—Articles of drysaltery, grocery, provision*, tee. "The only samples of colonial grown coffee were one from Borotonga, in the South Seas, and one shown by Mr. James Warner, of Brisbane, Queensland. The sample of Queens land coffee was grown by the exhibitor, at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane. The production v from young trees of about four or five year* growth, from seed, also grown at the same place, so they may be said to be fairly uivli matised. When newly gathered, the sumple weighed 5i ozs. The jury considere...
INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITIONS. INTERCOLONIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
INDUSTRIAL EXHIBITIONS. INTERCOLONIAL. THE forthcoming Intercolonial Industrial Exhibition which is to be opened in Melbourne about the month of August during the present year, is attracting much attention here, and pre parations are being made for having Queensland fully represented at it. - In a colony so rich in natural resources a* this is, it would disclose a mo*t inexcusable apathy if it were otherwise. Amongst the principal exhibits that will be for warded from South and Worth Queensland, will be specimens of gold, silver, copper, aud other metals, coal, marble, native woods, granite, and agricultural produce. These articles themselves are sufficient to form the basis of a very oxtensive export trade. The gold-fields of the north are gradually becoming more productive and giving employment to a large mining population. The Peak Down* Copper Mines bid fair to rival some of the rioh mines of South Australia. There are extensive coal measures in Queens land, and large quantities...

THE TORRES STRAITS ROUTE. (From the S. M. Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
THE TORRES STRAITS ROUTE. (From the S. M. Herald.) BY the return of the Souchays from her pioneer trip, a gentleman has arrived from Bata[?]ia to negotiate with the Queensland Government as to the constant mainten- ance of the service* If he is not possessed of plenipotentiary powers to conclude an arrangement, he will at least make himself acquainted with the views of the Colonial Government, and be able to report them fully to his own Government. It is neces sary that the two Governments should come to a friendly understanding on the subject They are both interested in the project, and can render each other mutual assistance. Some time ago we drew attention to the circular of Messrs. Reynst and Vinju, and the project for a Batavian Steam Naviga tion Company therein contained. We have received a further circular from the same firm, in which the project is expanded, and two separate steam services are proposed,—one from Batavia to Brisbane, and the other from Batavia to Mel bourne a...
The Farm & the Garden. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
The Farm & the Garden. THE weather in this portion of the world, during the last week, has been hot, dusty, and disagreeable. Throughout the colony, according to our telegrams, much the same state of affairs exists, and unless rain falls soon, the result must be serious, not to farmers and gardeners alone, but to stockholders. Itain has threatened many times, and some extraordinary water clouds have passed overhead. On Thursday, one of these burst a few miles down the river, causing a heavy full of rain, which lasted over a quarter of an hour. A similar visitor appeared on the ranges west of Brisbane, but each forgot to give us a call. The grape crop has all been gathered, though some very late ones are still coming to mar ket. The cotton crop has been the most successful ever raised in Queensland —a fact of which agriculturists cannot be too well aware.
ROTATION OF CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
ROTATION OF CROPS. IT is a singular fact, but one highly encou-&lt;*> raging to the wheat-growers of this country, that notwithstanding the withering nature of the last season, this crop has held its own better than any other cereal. From some quarters (Mount Gambier, for in stance) we hear of very high returns, as high even as 50 bushels to the acre, and the season altogether has put the fact be yond question that too much not too little moisture is what the Australian wheat grower has to fear. In the Downs district this truth has been most abundantly proven. During previous years there was consider able loss from rust, a visitor we have not heard mentioned in connection with the crop of last season. Concerning a proper rotation of crops, very little is yet known, so far as Queens land farming goes. The staples have been potatoes, maize—in a few instances oats or some of the fodder grasses bave been tried; in fewer still, wheat or turnips. Beans, when sent here from Tasm...
THE "DISEASE" IN POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
THE "DISEASE" IN POTATOES. I trust you will quote that word "disease" in my present communication; as, notwith-&lt;*> standing the remarks made by "G." in your issue of last week, and his evident sincerity and belief in what he writes, I am more satisfied than ever that he is laboring under a mistake in calling the destruction of potatoes in this colony a "potato disease." As well might sunstroke, or any other ca lamity brought on more frequently by reck less carelessness than any other cause —be called adisease. If a man will expose himself in a little black cloth cap or other inadequate covering, to the fierce rays of a Queensland midday sun ; or if he keeps his blood in a state of fever with strong drink, who can wonder at sunstroke or apoplexy overtaking him ? I do not mean to say that all the casualties mentioned are brought about by these causes; but no one wonders when they do take place. On the same principle, who can wonder at a plant of the nature of the potato,...

FARMING ITEMS FROM CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
FARMING ITEMS FROM CALIFORNIA. A CORRESPONDENT having considerately sent us his file of the California Farmer, we have been much edified by a perusal thereof. Many of the difficulties encountered here are in the pages of the journal in question poorirayed true to nature. We find that the Californians have their occasional floods as we have; while the way they get over their difficulties is highly encouraging. In the No. for July 14, is a very fair engraving, representing the governor's house in Sacramento. The house is at the " corner of Bth and N. streets," both of which are lined with trees on the side-walks. The trees, standing apparently about 20 feet high, and about the same distance apart, give a charming air of shade to the houses, the streets and the people, who seem to enjoy it. Yet we are told these trees and the gardens with which the houses are surrounded, were destroyed by the flood of 1861-2; the water reaching half-way np the parlor windows of the governor's residence...
PLANTING AND TRANSPLANTING. (From Hockings' Garden Manual.) PLANTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
PLANTING AND TRANSPLANTING. (From Hockings' Garden Manual.) PLANTING. THE season for planting extends from the beginning of May to the end of August; early planting is to be prefered where practicable, and it should be done in calm, damp, but not rainy weather. Nothing can be more injurious to a tree than to have its roots exposed in dry, windy weather. Deep planting is an evil much to be guarded against. A good criterion is, to observe the depth the tree had previously stood in the nursery, be careful that this mark is at least three inches above the general surface of the soil when it is planted, and let the earth be heaped up to that height around it for a couple of feet or so, in the form of a little hillock. Trees of a larger size may be rather more ele vated. This applies to soils of the ordinary description; but in damp soils the elevation should be still greater. In planting, the roots should be laid as flat as possible, radiating in all directions from the stem. If any leaf...

SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VI. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VI. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. THE eggs are of a yellowish hue at first, but after the lapse of a few hours, in this colony, they change color to a dark grey, or neutral tint; from being weak and soft, they also be- come solid, and are not easily crushed by pres sure between the fingers. Mods. Martelli recommends that the egga should be folded as loosely as possible, and sus pended from the roof in the baskets formerly used for the cocoons, so that they may be thoroughly ventilated and kept free from damp, which, as well as too much warmth, is apt to be prejudicial to the eggs. In this situation, he says, they may be preserved until the first ap proach of hot weather, when they must be packed in boxes, and kept in a cool place until ;he spring again produces its supplies of silk worms' food. Personally, I have always, while in Australia, whether in Victoria or Queensland, caused the eggs to be deposited upon dean dry white calico, or white note paper, which ...
