GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the D.D. Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

GOONDIWINDI. (From the Correspondent of the D.D. Gazette.) THERE is nothing new here, this is beyond dispute. We have the same continued drought with all its evil concomitants; the same blue sky; which, lovely though its azure hue may may be, now palls upon the sense. We have the same embrowned and parched-up soil, and, in fine, we are now seriously uneasy at the pros pect before us, and believe that if, in the course of Providence, we are not blessed with some reasonable quantity of rain before this month expires,' the effects will be disastrous to all cusses of the community. Already cattle are dying in all directions, horses straying far from home in search of food, the creeks dried up, the river low and even stagnant, no milk, meat more like equine than bovine, and every symptom of speedy and general distress in this inland district.

WARWICK. (From the Argus, March 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

WARWICK. (From the Argus, March 17.) THE weather still continues dry, and the wind blowing strong every day, clouds of dust are continually being swept along the streets, which penetrate every dwelling. On Thursday Thursday afternoon there was every appearance of rain, but only a few drops fell to tantalise v*. We regret that the local committee of the Boyal Agricultural Association have appointed the 27th of June as the day for holding the show in Warwick, as it was anticipated that our annual races would come off on the tame week. Bnch an arrangement would hare been most advantageous, both as regards the sue cets of the society's exhibition and the annual races. As the Toowoomba noes cud on the 31st of June, the hones would not be in a con dition to run here on the following week, so that under the present arrangements of the committee of the Agricultural Society, it will be impossible to hare the races in conjunction with the show.

THE hot weather seems loth to quit us here, and although the mornings are now cool, the afternoon heat, say from 2 to 5 p.m., is almost unendurable. There appears but little prospect appears prospect of rain, but feed is, as yet, plentiful. Intelligence has beeu received of the death of James Dale, overseer at the Wallain Station, whose body was found on Wednesday, the 14th ultimo, not far from the station, and close to the road leading (lienee to Uillsborough.

CLERMONT. (From the Peak Downs Telegram, March 3.) THE last few days have been very dry and hot, though the nights have been bracingly cool, especially towards morning. A pretty heavy thunder shower fell on Sunday, and pro- Sunday, pro vided the diggers at Gregory1! and Expedition Creeks with a temporary supply of water. Some Tery fine sweet liave been brought into town during the week from Mr. Marshall's cultivated plot at Oakey Greek, Drummond Range. Two potatoes purchased by Mr. Reiraers, weighed respectively 8 lbs. and 3 lbs. 10 ozs., and on being cooked were found thoroughly sound and good. A mau, whose name is unknown, was found dead in his hut at C'opperfield yesterday morn ing. He is believed to be a foreiguer, and a recent arrival here. A pott mortem examina tion was to have been made yesterday afternoon, and on Monday a magisterial inquiry will pro* bably be held.

TOOWOOMBA HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

TOOWOOMBA HOSPITAL. IN accordance with a request made to us we publish the following appeal, which has been made by the committee of the above institu-<*> tion:— The unnsual dry season we have experienced, and other causes haTe led to a large amount of sickness and destitution, and so great has been the influx of patients, and necessarily augmented the monthly expenditure, that unless immediate aid v afforded by the public the institution will hare to be closed. The average weekly return of patients fluctuates between 50 and 90, besides the numerous other calls made on the committee for out-door relief by persons who from long illness and inability to work, are destitute of the com* mon necessaries of life. There being no Orphan School erected in the colony, the committee have also to maintain several children, whose parents are dead or hare deserted them. To close rat*'* an institution would be an irre parable loos to the district. To deprive of tem porary shelter and...

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

CRICKETING. A MATCH was begun on Saturday afternoon between eleven from the Government Printing Office and a similar number of the Victoria Club, excluding two of the best players. Only eight of the latter mustered on the ground, but substitutes were allowed to make up the requi site number in the field. The match was un finished when the stumps were drawn, and it will be concluded next Saturday, if there is no other match pending. The following is th« score:— GOVERNMBKT PbIVTIXG OTFICI. A cricket match was played on Saturday (St. Patrick's Day), between eleveu Ipswich players »nd eleven of the Albert Club (Brisbane), on the Grammar School Ground. The game wm not a very exciting one, as the Athenian!, who mustered v very good team, carried everything their own way. The Brisbanitos were, however, laboring under a disadvantage, not having theii best eleven to play, as several of them were pre vented by business from coming up.

THE MURDER OF MR. STEPHENS, AT MOOLOOLAH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE MURDER OF MR. STEPHENS, AT MOOLOOLAH. TRULY we ought to think much of those men who so perseveringly encounter privation, danger, and even death, in their endeavors to bring to light the hidden botanical treasures of our adopted country. But whether auch is tho case, let the following narrative tell. For the particu lar* we are indebted to the courtesy of Captain Watson, of the steamer Gneoring:— The murder of Mr. Stephens, a botauist in the service of Government, will yet be fresh to the minds of our readers; but it will scarcely be credited that no further steps hare been taken in the mutter by those in authority. We have not even heard of the rites of Christian burial being accorded to the remains of the murdered man. The assassins, although per fectly well knowu, are allowed to roam about at pleasure, a continual source of danger to tho timber-cutters who, often singly, pursuo their culling in that wild neighborhood. Mr. Stephens, it will be remembered, went to Mooloolah abo...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 23. ANOTHER week, and still the same distressing report. What will be the result if the drought continues much longer, we can hardly bear to contemplate; the suffering and loss throughout t the district will be sure to be most severe, and | will be the more severe from the fact that the settlers, many of them small farmers on clearing leases, had not recovered from the effects of tho losses of the two previous years of flood. , There ia no lack of clouds, indeed, in ap pearance, the sky is much like what might be expected at this period of the year, and which in other years is attended with a copious dis ; charge of rain; but they all pass over, the ex treme dryuess of the ground and atmosphere causing them to disappear gradually as they move inland, with scarcely aay rain whatever. ' It seems as if they were all absorbed in the j surrounding air, without being able to saturate , it sufficiently with moUture to c...

LOGAN RIVER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

LOGAN RIVER. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 22. THE scudding clouds from the east still con-<*> tinue their tantalising promises of speedy rain, but every day we are disappointed. Surely rain must be falling somewhere in the interior in heavy quantities, or where are all the clouds going to. Last evening there was a tremendous glare in tho sky towards the mouth of the Logan, so I imagine the bush must be on fire, and the dry gross must bo going fast. This sort of thing is making bad into worse for the cattle, as there is already little enough on the ground. On Sunday last, a man named Horan was drowned in the Logan whilst bathing. There were two other people bathing at the same time, but they appear to have been uuable to save him. An attack of cramp—perhaps of the heart—seized him, and he sank. Another case of rather sudden death occurred to a woman, the wife of a person who was making his way on to a farm on the Logan. It appears that the party had engaged a dra...

We have again to call public attention, and ■ the attention of the Gorernment in particular, ! to the great inconvenience we sutler by reason of having uo magistrate residing in town. We need not recount the many grievances wo labor under in being deprived of the services of a J.P., : as such are palpable enough to all; but we ' must say that a town like Draytou is treated !

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, March 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

IPSWICH. (From the Queensland Times, March 20.) AT Laidley, on Sunday, the St. Patrick's banquet passed off very successfully; the chair was occupied by the Rev. Father Golding, and there were between seventy and eighty persons present. A lecture was delivered last evening in the Wesleyan Church, Ellenborough-street, by the Rev. 'Iheophilus Beaizly. The attendance was fair, considering counter attractions. The sub ject was a very interestingoue, "Men Wanted," and it was cleverly handled by the lecturer. A very severe accident happened yesterday evening at Brodie's Gully, near Bigge s Camp. A blast had been set and the fuse lighted, when a German was seen quite near the spot. The workmen called out to him vociferously to go away, but he did not—no doubt not under standing them—and in a few seconds the charge exploded, and he received some very serious injuries. He was brought down to Ipswich by the 6.15 p.m. train, and conveyed to the hos pital, where he now lies. The injuries are ch...

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

The Queenslander. S ATURDAY, MARCH 24, 1866. WITH such an immense territory, and so large a portion of it nominally occupied by tenants of the Crown, it is reasonable to expect that the rents of Crown lands should contribute materially to the revenue of Queensland. If assessed at their real value, Customs duties would be unneces sary : but, with a wise liberality, the law provides for leasing unoccupied lands for fourteen years at a nominal rental. The effect of this course has been to stimulate settlement in an unprecedented degree. The hardships and the expense of the first occupation ot a new district are such as to entitle the pioneers to every consideration, and hence the lease 3 are granted for fourteen years, a period long enough to enable the holders to reap a rich harvest in all cases where their means have been equal to their enterprise. At the end of this time they are entitled to a renewal of the leases for another five years, but at a rent equal to the actual annual val...

WATER POLICE COURT. SATURDAY, MARCH 17. BEFORE the Water Police Magistrate. ASSAULT.—William Hobbs was charged with assaulting Captain Williams, of the Sultana, on the high seas. Mr. Wilson appeared for the prosecution. Thomas Williams, captain of the     Sultana, deposed that he knew the prisoner, who was a seaman on board his ship; he re membered the 24th of February last; he was   putting one of the crew in irons on that day, when the prisoner came forward and assaulted him; he could not swear that prisoner struck him, but he had a witness in court to prove that he had; he was underneath one of the crew when he, the prisoner, as he believed, struck him; it was about 7 o'clock in the evening. The witness here read an entry in the ship's log, containing an account of the disturbance which occurred on board; the name of the prisoner was not mentioned therein. The examination was con tinued : He had not entered the prisoner's name in the log bec...

Extracts from the Papers. PREVENTION OF STRIKES. (From the Courier.) THE present condition of what is popu-<*> larly termed the labor market, the late demonstration amongst the working classes, together with certain circumstances of recent date bearing on both, all combine to bring into prominent relief several ques tions of imi>ortance intimately affecting the future well-being of colonial lite. The present relations between the two great classes of society, the employers and the employed, and the ultimate future of the latter, are topics on which some of the most thoughtful minds of the present day in England and elsewhere are earnestly engaged. Nor is this to be wondered at when we consider how much is involved in the apparent breaking down, as it were, of all the ancient landmarks, the snapping of former ties, of which the altered position of masters and men will eventually prove the cause. Since the year 1851, wliich was to have ushered in a reign of peace and ...

The Novelist. MORLEY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXI. THE STORY OF A BRAVE BOY. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. "IN 1850," began Adrian Manfredi, "I was, with my eldest brother Attilio, a schoolboy at home, in our father's house at Pistoja, and had no more idea then of becoming a seaman or a wanderer ou the sea than I hare now of filling the choir of St. Peter. " Our father was a sculptor ; his studio was always filled with choice efforts in Tuscan and Carrara marble, in alabaster and chalcedony. He was a leading member of the Academia delle Belle Arti; but, in that land of artists, his means were small; hence onr living was frugal, and our house somewhat humble, because it was Tery old, being the same in which Pope Cle ment IX. was born. " My brother Attilio was said to be beautiful as an angel by all the mothers of Pistoja. In deed, he was a very handsome little boy, and frequently served my father as a model; thus Attilio's figure appears in more than one of the groups which he contributed to the gr...

TURNED TO THE WALL. CHAPTER I. THE SMITHY. BY JOHN FRANCIS WALLES. CLING, clang! cling, clang! 'Tis a winter's night, in the month of January, well-nigh half a century ago, in a central county of merry England. Out upon the still, sharp, frosty air rings the beat of the smith's hammer, timing pleasant music that shapes itself into song, as it did in the days of our first George to the ear of Handel, when he fixed the sound into a melody and made them immortal Out, too, upon the blackness of the dark, cold sky, flashes the ruddy glow of sparkling light through the open win dow of the smithy, flooding into the night in a sharply-defined stream, with it* banks of gloom bounding it at either aide—one of those pictures which old masters lored to paint for the con trasts of light and shade. How gratefully comes the sense of warmth and comfort from within to him who stands outside in the chilly air! come belated villager making hi* way homewards; some wanderer that knows not where to rest,...

THE RESUMPTION OF STATE-AID. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE RESUMPTION OF STATE-AID. WHO is it that wants state-pay restored for ministers of religion? Not all who ask for it, not all who vote for it, and not all who receive it. Upon the question of State-aid there is more insincerity, more duplicity, more dissimulation, and more mean dishonesty, than upon any other political question whatever. Among those who demand State-aid, or vote for it, very few indeed are in earnest Most of them are against State-aid, and would be very glad to have the obnoxious thing totally abolished at once and for ever. But they dare not say so. There are members of the Assembly, said to be about forty in number, who have obtained their seats chiefly through the influence of the clergy of two denominations. Whatever be the convictions of these ecclesiastical repre sentatives, they are bound to vote for State-aid to churches, and to church schools. Many of them, though not all, are too well informed to believe that State-aid is anything but an incubus upon the...
