MISCELLANEA. ROBBERY OF THE UNION BANK, MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

MISCELLANEA. ROBBERY OF THE UNION BANK, MELBOURNE. A well-dressed man, named Fletcher, was brought before Mr. Alderman Finnis, at the Mansion-house Police-court, charged on his own confession with having robbed the Melbourne branch of tlie Union Bank of Australia of secu rities to the value of £10,000. The robbery took pUce more than a year ago, and the jtrisoner came to this country to give himself up; but the curious part of the affair wa«, that though parties representing both the bank and the customer whose bouds were stolen were present in court, neither would make any charge, and the prisoner was discharged on his own re* cognisances. It appears that the owner of the bouds has oomnicnocd an action at ltw against the bunk (o recover for their loss, aud both parties seemed to fear that if they prosecuted the prisoner it would prejudioe their case in the civil action. PftisßVTKSiAv Uxiok.—The Lord Provost of Glasgow has presided over a crowded and enthusiastic meeting which wa« h...

REVIEW OF THE COLONIAL WOOL TRADE FOR THE TEAR 1865. (From the Home News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

REVIEW OF THE COLONIAL WOOL TRADE FOR THE TEAR 1865. (From the Home News.) The closing price, of 1864 having ruled mo-<*> derate and for faulty and inferior descriptions comparatively low, induced a rather better trade than had hitherto existed; this, coupled with a gradually decreasing rate for money, cniwed more inquiries, and many parcels held orer from the closing sales of 1861 fouud buyer* at quotations more in accordance with current prices, quality and condition being considered. The opening sale of the March series, com menced on the 2nd, and we had a large attend ance of home and foreign buyer* ; the latter, as usual, selecting all the better clips, more parti cularly of Port Phillip growth, and limiting their operations almost to the better brands, caused the burry and inferior descriptions to be left to home competition. The dealers, not being anxious to stock with these sorts at the prices ranging, left the bulk to be taken by the manu facturer?, to whom a ...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

AMERICA. A New Orleans despatch states that a lot of negroes on plantations on the Red River in Louisiana rose in arms recently, and attempted to murder their overseers, but failed. They then marched to soother point to await rein- '■ forcements. Tip militia however, dispersed ■ them, and captured a number of the ring- ' leaders. On several plantations, arms and ammunition were found secreted in large quantities. The militia in Coddo parish were kept under arms in readiness for any event. The negroes generally througout Louisiana are reported to refuse work, and to manifest a sullen and discontented spirit. They claim that the Government should furnish them with lands for their own special use. Most of the large plan tations on the Bed River were lying idle, and many were offered for sale at very low prices. The same condition of affairs is said to exist in Eastern Texas and in Arkansas. The plasters were very anxious to secure white labor for the approaching crops, and agents were ...

ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

ITALY. The ministerial crisis at Florence has termi-<*> nated, General La Marmora having succeeded in forming an administration. The chief diffi-<*> culty in his way was that of finding a Minister of finance, but he eventually succeeded in persuading Signor Scialqja to take that post. The new Minister of Finance made his finan cial statement on January 23 to the Chamber of Deputies. He declared against loans and other extraordinary expedients for adjusting the balance between revenue and expenditure, which he said must be effected by taxes and reduc tions. His predecessor had announced reduc tions to the amount of 30 millions, but he would extend them up to 65 millions, 30 millions of which would be effected in the military and naval departments. The king has met with a severe bereavement in the death of his third son, Prince Otho, which melancholy event took place at Genoa on the 22nd of January.

ROME. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

ROME. It is said that Victor Emmanuel and General La Marmora have intimated to the Court of Bome, of their own accord and in the most positive manner, that the Italian Government will respect the Papal territory alter the depar ture of the French. Oh no pretext will it send troops thither, nor will it permit any volunteers to invade the Btates. Should a revo lution break out in Borne, and the Pope take flight, the Italian government will hold aloof, but the king and ministers will not shrink from a comp d'etaf in Italj in order to paralyse the party of action and deprive the Roman insur rectionists of any support from without. On the death of Pius IX. the Italian* will equally refrain from interfering to put down any dis order which may occur, and will adhere to their renunciation of the Eternal City, unless the Pontiff for the time being should voluntarily abdicate the temporal power on behalf of him self and his successors in favor of the King of Italy, and should, not* proprio, i...

GALES, INUNDATIONS, AND GREAT SNOW-STORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

GALES, INUNDATIONS, AND GREAT SNOW-STORM. Seldom has the commencement of a new year been more noted by a dismal record of wrecks on our coasts, and of founderings in the deep seas, than that of the present year. A series of terrific gales, which commenced on December 28, continued with but slight intervals of inter mission until within a few days past. A list has been forwarded to the Board of Trade by the Receiver of Wrecks, of something like 400 good ships that hare become wrecks, and in their ruin hare destroyed an immense amount of property, and, what is still more serious, hare involved the loss of many lives. The record of , these disasters i» not entirely a dark one, for it also tells of acts of heroism, of noble daring, »nd of patient endurance, which do honor to humanity. A nobler sight has seldom been seen than that of Captain Martin, of the Lon don steamship, standing on the deck of his sink ing ship*, conscious that all hope of saving the vessel was lost, and calmly dire...

FOREIGN. FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

FOREIGN. FRANCE. The Emperor opened the session of the French Legislature on the 22nd, with a speech which was looked forward to with more than ordinary expectation. It touches upon most current topics—the prosperity of France, which i he refers to the continued development of j trade mnd manufactures, the unity of j Italy, the consolidation of the long-subsisting ; friendship with England, with a passing alia- \ ' sion to Germany, declaring that France will re -1 main neutral unless her own interests compel : her to interfere. Bat it is with reference to | America and Mexico that the language of the ; Emperor will be read with the deepest concern; , and as this passage is the most important in the speech, we give it in full:— : "In Mexico, the Government, founded by the I will of the people, is consolidating itself. The dissidents, vanquished and dispersed, no longer have a chief. The national troops have shown valor, and the country has found the guarantees of order and security w...

SPAIN. MILITARY REVOLT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

SPAIN. MILITARY REVOLT. Military rising, (pronunciamientos) have taken place in some provincial towns. General Prim and Carlos Latorree are at the head of the insurgents. Three thousand men had left Madrid by railway for the sooth. General Prim had under him 600 insurgent*. On the evening of January 5 he appeared to be moving towards Andalnsia or the mountains ol Toledo. General Zabala waa in pursuit, and another column under the Marquis Duero was manoeuvring to cut off bia retreat. Marshal O'Donneli had made an inapeetion of the banraeka in Madrid, and waa received with shouts of " Yira la Reina." The Minuter of the Interior had announced the present state of things to the Cortes, at the same time stating hi* conviction that order would be promptly re established. From day to day the intelligence by telegrams respecting the movements of Prim and hie fol lowers became more and more contradictory and uncertain.

THE LATE OUTBREAK IN JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE LATE OUTBREAK IN JAMAICA. ON December 7 the House of Assembly was summoned to the Legislative Council Chamber, when Governor Eyre gave his assent to two bills, one altering and amending the political constitution of the island, and the other pro- j riding for the trial and punishment of offences committed during martial law. Upon a subsequent day, the cons tit v"ion was abolished by the Legislature, in order that the home Government might frame a fresh constitu tion for the bland. The Governor in a message to the Legislature says that in a confidential communication Mr. CardweU had suggested this coarse. Among other documents hud before the Legis lative Council was a letter to Governor Eyre from Colonel Whitfield, commanding the western division of the Jamaica forces, in which the colonel asserts, from his own personal inves tigation, that a seditious apirit pervades the whole island, and that in all probability the negroes would rise if it were not for the pre sence of the mili...

ITALY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

ITALY. A story is going the rounds of the Neapolitan papers in regard to a prophecy made by Pio IX., when in conversation with a high Spanish personage. It remains to be seen whether his holiness is as good at a prophecy as Mathieu (de la Drome.) The Holy Father says:— Unfortunately it is to be feared that the year 1866 will be one in which a great deal of blood will be shed. The fire of the demagogues will burst forth in many parti of Europe ; however, this dreadful conflagration will have finished in 1867- when peace will be re-established, Rome will view with grief a second enaction of the scenes of 1849, and the Pope will be obliged t« abandon the City of the Church as a fugitive. In 1867, when the Pope returns to the Vati can 0'), a grand council will be assembled, and the centenary of St. Peter will be celebrated. In 1868 you will be present at my funeral!

LEYBURN. (From the correspondent of the D.D. Gazette, March 13.) THIS neighborhood is progressing in its usual quiet and steady manner, and I have not any-<*> thing of particular public importance to narrate, with one exception, to which I will advert pre- pre sently. Since my last letter, we have Ik en visited by the hon. the Speaker of the Legisla tive Assembly, who has come up on a visit to his son (our worthy Police Magistrate). The honorable gentleman is looking uncommonly well, and did not appear to be anything the worse for his journey, which, at his advanced age, must liave been rather a trying ordeal. There is nothing new to narrate, unless that we are going to have another store—in fact, although an uncommonly quiet (too much so sometimes) and orderly township, a worse one for a correspondent cannot well be imagined, and of late more so than ever. This, although saying a great deal for the inhabitants, does not exactly suit my ticket. There has been a little,...
