CHINA AND JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

CHINA AND JAPAN. The following is from the Overland Trade Report of December 1st:— Mr. Hart, the Inspector-General of Customs, has just returned to Shanghai from Peking. A well authenticated rumor has it that he has received instructions to withdraw all the foreign element from the customs service by the end of the current Chinese year. Seeing that the British indemnity will then have been all paid, and   seeing that Tseng-kwo-fan rules the roost, pro- bability confirms the rumour. He will then have full control over the customs revenue. Under these circumstances. the advent of Sir R. Alcock must be deemed a matter of sincere congratulation, for although his Excellency and Tseng-kwo-fan may agree on many vital points connected with national rights, still the liability of the latter to go too far renders it fortunate that a salutary check should be placed upon him. For instance, on the subject of rowdyism, manstealing, and such like lawlessness, Sir Rutherford will go gr...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

AMERICA. News has been received via California to December 6. The Message of the President was well re- ceived. In it he expressed his gratitude for a national preservation, and asserted the expe diency of adopting an amended constitution, which whilst abolishing slavery would prevent disruption. The revenue for the year was passed. There was a deficiency of eleven millon dollars ; but it is expected that next year there will be one   hundred and eleven millions surplus.         The President has declined to accede to the proposition made by England to have a joint commission to settle the mutual claims. He   also virtually affirms the Monroe doctrine. The rations to the distressed Southerners, both black and white, are now nearly exhausted.   The question of the admission of Southern   members to Congress is as yet unsettled. The advices from Chili report that five ports have bee...

A tablet in memory of the late Mr. Moffatt has been put up during the week in St. Paul's Church, on the north side of the nave, very near the place where the deceased Treasurer ueed to sit. The tablet is of white marble, sur- mounted by an urn, with a dove-colored ground of same material. The height is four feet eight inches, and the breadth two feet and a half. The excellent and appropriate inscription, which, at the request of the subscribers to the memento, was written by Sir George Bowen, is as follows:— "In memory of the Honorable Thomas De Lacy Moffatt, Colonial Treasurer of Queensland, who departed this life on the 2nd day of October, 1864. Aged 38 years.

DRAYTON AND TOOWOOMBA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

DRAYTON AND TOOWOOMBA AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE SHOW. THE statement made within the walls of our Legislative Assembly by the representative of a farming population, that the Darling Downs "could not a received a sturdy grow cabbage," sturdy refutation on Friday last, in the identical dis trict, regarding whose future so wanton a libel had been disseminated. Had the hon. and eccentric member for War wick —whose squatting proclivities betray him into childish expressions as to the sterility and barrenness of our soil (excepting always its qualification for fine sheep breeding)—visited Toowoomba on Friday la*t; had he honored the Town Hall with bis pretence, and beheld the splendid samples of wheat laid out for ex hibition, side by side with the other valuable productions of our fertile soil and salubrious climate, he would hare started with amazement, and have been inclined to sigh for the day when such plump rich grain would wave its golden flood over th...

THEATRICAL CHIT CHAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

THEATRICAL CHIT CHAT. OLD STORY. Tis strange to think how female wit So off should make a lucky hit. While man. with all his high pretence To deeper judgment, sounder sense. Should err, and measures false pursue: Tis very strange, 1 own—but true. Th* principal eveut of the week at the Vic toria Theatre—for we huvc such a place of amusement in Brisbane—occurred on Tuesday evening : tlio occasion being the benefit of Miss Louise Arnot, :i lady high in favor with Brisbane playgoers, as the sequel proved. The pieces nelccted were that standard favor ite " The Rough Diamond," and another labor ing underthe somewhat dubious misnomer, "Ire land as it is." A more appropiate title would be " Ireland as it was," because the plot of the drama describes a condition of things that happily has become but a tradition of the past; or, if a parallel case is yet to be met with, i* can only be a very isolated instance. The events, however, from which this play derives its interest, have had their sour...

New Publications. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) November, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

New Publications. (FROM OUR LONDON CORRESPONDENT.) November, 1865. THE number of novels is legion, and it is difficult to select those that are worth reading, or which deserve more than an ephemeral reputation. Dickens' "Mutual ephemeral IMeud'' will, of course, be read with eager ness by those who have not taken it in month by month. Now complete in two volumes (225.), it allows of more satisfac tory perusal. One can follow the delinea tions of character better, and see how care ful has been the master-hand, and how true to life. It will bear re-perusal, and indeed «nly thus can one appreciate the finer and exact touches with which the characters are finished. "-Passing the Time," by W. Blanchard Jerrold (2 vols.), has this pecu liarity that in the midst of the fictitious narrative there are given a series of papers describing life iv the Pyrenees. The hero is thus made to contribute really valuable information respecting French agricultuial life and Parisian amusements. The work i...

Latest General News. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

Latest General News. IN addition to the news by the regular mail, which arrived in Brisbane on the 23rd ultimo, the following has bas been received: SPAIN AND CHILI. Madrid, November 25. Tho Minister for Foreign Affairs has ad dressed • circular to the Spanish representatives •broad, approving tho conduct of Admiral Pareja towards Chili. It adds that the reply of the Chilian Government to tho first overtures of Pareja closed the doors to any fresh negocia tiom, even with the mediation of the corps diplomatique. It reiterates the declaration that Spain does not aspire to conquests in America, but at the same time says that she will not Buffer her dignity to be offended without re quiring satisfaction. The Nation of to-day says the mercantile interests of Spain in Chili are not of sufficient importance to justify intervention, and the foreign policy of France is noble enough to place general above mercantile interests, but with England it is otherwise.

A PUGILIST'S FUNERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

A PUGILIST'S FUNERAL. -Boston Gazette. Tom Sayers, the pugilist, was buried at High-<*> gate Cemetery, under circumstances which can only be described by the word disgraceful. Soon after mid-day a vast crowd had assembled in High-street, (Jamden-town, where the ex-cham pion lived, and the main-road and pavement from the Mother Bed Cap, for several hundred yards towards Ilampstead, was invested by what looked like an execution mob. The shops were nearly all closed, partly perhaps oat of respect to the memory of Sayers, and partly, there ran be no question, oat of deference to the evidently predatory instincts of the crowd. Jesting, ■wearing, and rough chaff, wishes that the music would come, jostling and horse-play, were the occupations most in vogue. All the way from High-street to the cemetery the same claw of people on foot, in carts, and on the roof and inside of overladen cabs, were to be seen steadily making for the hero's grave. At the cemetery itself the gates w...

FROM MEXICO. Washington, November 29.—News from El Paso received this evening by Romero, Mexican Minister states that the recent movement of the national forces of Mexico compelled the French in Chihuahua to evacuate the city and State, and withdraw to Durango. On the 25th October the evacuation began. Four days later not a single French soldier was left in Chihuahua. New Orleans, November 29.—The Times' Brownsville correspondent of the 16th says the correspondence between Weitzel and Mejia culminated in the following order:—The Mexican authorities having officially notified the Commanding General that the Ranchero would be ordered to cease publishing articles insulting U.

ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

ROMA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) January 19. IN Roma, where ruffianism is rampant, and displays of rowdyism of the worst order the normal condition of things, it would be useless to attempt an enumeration, serialim, of assaults attempt enumeration, seriatim, assaults common, or assaults otherwise. Nor can I trespass on jour space to describe the various cases of robbery that hare been perpetrated upon the votaries of the "jolly god," who, for some time past hare been flocking in from the west to be offered up, willing sacrifices, to the publican and the loafer. Shearing is drawing to a close, and the scenes common to all bush townships at this season, are being enacted here with an energy and earnestness almost in credible. Drunkenness, indecency, and obscenity, are here indulged in with a freedom that shows that from long immunity these men may reasonably be as reckless of consequences as they are careless of offending decency. For weeks past this township has been a scene of wi...

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. January 23. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. January 23. THE hurry and confusion incidental upon the arrival and departure of the Eng- lish Mails is now over for this month, and there is a little more breathing time. The Madras took her departure yesterday, and   the City of Melbourne carries a supple- mentary mail this afternoon. As you will have had the full run of the English papers in the meantime, it may be of little use to furnish you with any extracts from those received here ; but there are some matters which have been much discussed since the mail was delivered, and to these it may be desirable at least to refer. First of these   let us take the Fenian movement. I see that it has not escaped attention and com- ment in Queensland, and that one Brisbane   journal advocates, by way of compromise,   the concession of O'Connell's ancient demand—repeal of the Legislative Union. Well, I don't suppose that our opinions or advice will matter m...

The fourth clause of the Crown Lands Alienation Act, under which all these reserves were proclaimed, annexes an important con dition to their proclamation, which has not been complied with, which cannot now be complied with, and without which they are dearly illegal. This condition is as follows:—" Provided that within one month [of their publication in the Government Gazette] should parliament be then in session, and otherwise within one month of the commencement of the nextensuing session of par liament there shall be laid before both houses of Parliament an abstract of all such declarat...

TOOWOOMBA. January 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

TOOWOOMBA. January 26. THE Agricultural and Horticultural Society held their show to-day. It was a great success, there being over one hundred and twenty-nine exhibitors. There was a large attendance of spectators, and in fact the day was observed as a holiday. There were sixty-six successful exhibitors. The wheat and grapes formed the principal features of the show, and they were pronounced by the judges to be the best ever exhibited in the district. The first prize—a silver cup, value £10, for white wheat—was given, Mr. Groom being the awarder, to R. J. Echart. The weight of the wheat was 65 lbs. to the bushel; it was grown on the Main Range.

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER I. THE BLIND GODDESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 3 February 1866

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER I. THE BLIND GODDESS. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. IT was the evening one of the last days of spring, when that delightful season is blending with the approaching summer, and when the sun was setting on one of those green and fertile landscapes, which we find nowhere but in England, that a young man paused upon the crest of the eminence which overlooks, from the southward, the beautiful little vale and se questered village of Acton-Rennel, and, with a kindling eye and a flashing cheek, surveyed the scene and all its features, on which he had not gazed for what now seemed a long and weary lapse of time. Morley Ashton, for it is he whom we intro duce at once to the reader, was a handsome and active young fellow, with a lithe and well-knit figure, somewhat above the middle height; but he was thin and rathor sallow in face, as if wasted by recent sickness or suffering. His shorn hair and well-pointed moustache, together with the general contour of his hea...
