Odd and Ends. (Original and Selected.) PRESCRIPTION FOR A LOQUACIOUS LADY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

Odd and Ends. (Original and Selected.) PRESCRIPTION FOR A LOQUACIOUS LADY. "PRAY, doctor, give me, if you please, Some medicine for my disease; My health and courage all are gone, And I am weak and feeble grown." The doctor felt her poise, and safcl, " There is bo cause for fear or dread; You've no disease, he not distressed; You need no medicine, but rest." TttttodittmT Why, bow yon talk! Jost «cc my tongue, tU white as chalk: Look at it, doctor—look, indeed— And say in troth, what does it need?* " If you will keep it still and quiet, *Tt» all it needs—pr*y madam, try it t You overtake it at the beat, And, like the body, that needs rest.1 * Thi chief use of an old bachelor is to count one in the census. "Rl kiss you, Betsy, if youdon'tmind." "You havn't the face to do that, John!" In the beginning woman consisted of a single rib. Now she is all ribs, from her belt to the rim of her petticoats. Why are country girls' cheeks like French calico ? Because they are warranted to wash and...

THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE ENGLISH MAIL. BY the steamer Lady Bowen, which arrived at the wharf shortly before 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, we are in receipt of English papers to January 26. WRECK OP THE STEAMER LONDON.— LOSS OF 220 LIVES. The month of January, 1866, will be long remembered as one of disaster and sorrow. During the past three weeks nearly every day has brought tidings of wreck and loss of life to our shorn. Amidst all these disasters, nothing equals iv tragical interest the fate of the Lon don, an Australian packet ship, which foundered on Thursday, January 11, in the Bay of Biscay, with the loss of 220 lives. The fame this fine vessel had acquired as a passenger ship—partly owing to the fact of her last outward passage having been made in 59 days—was in itself calculated to dispel all anxiety on her behalf, even during the late tempestuous weather, and it is believed that her owners and the under writers concerned were least of all prepared for the terrible disaster that has happened to...

BANQUET AT IPSWICH ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY. (FROM OUR OWN REPORTER.) Ipswich, Tuesday Morning. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

BANQUET AT IPSWICH ON ST. PATRICK'S DAY. (FROM OUR OWN REPORTER.) Ipswich, Tuesday Morning. THE banquet given last evening in the School of Arts was well attended, and the company was by no means confined to the sons of Erin. The hall was ornamentally decorated with ever- greens, and banners bearing various appro priate mottoes, and orer the platform there was a number of Bengal lights arranged with ex cellent effect in the form of a harp. The Mayor, Mr. J. Murphy, was Chairman; and Mr. P. O'Sullivan, Vice-Chairman. Among the guests were—the Hon. A. MacaUster, Minister for Lands and Works; and the Hon. J. P. Bell, Colonial Treasurer. The musical department was under the direction of Mr. Strauhan, who was assisted by a well-known Ipswich amateur on the violin. After the usual loyal toasts, The Chaibmax proposed the health of his Excellency the Governor, and it was drank with enthusiasm. The Ber. P. Baxrs then proposed the " Memory of St. Patrick." He said he con sidered it a great ho...

MELBOURNE. March 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

MELBOURNE. March 17. Mr. Embling is still engaged in endeavoring to form a Ministry, but it is generally supposed that he will be unsuccessful, as he has never yet proved himself to be deserving of the posi- tion he ha. assumed. By those acquainted with ' politics in Victoria the whole thing is con- ! | sidered a farce. It is intended to raise a monument to tbe memory of Mr. G. Y. Brooke, the tragedian; ! and, considering thst, during his residence in > the colonies, he was an universal favorite, there is reason to believe that a considerable amount of money will be raised. In the Legislative Assembly last evening, it was resolved thst the proprietors of the Mel bourne Argus hod, by certain statements put forward by them, been guilty of a very gross j breach of privilege. j March 19. ! The political crisis continues. As expected, Dr. Enabling could not form a Ministry. j i The Assembly will meet again to-morrow (this | jday.) j i It was resolved on Friday night not to scospt j j ...

DALBY. (From the Herald, March 15.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

DALBY. (From the Herald, March 15.) LAND SALE.—A sale of Crown land was held in Dalby, on Thursday last. One allotment, of half-an-acre, situate in the town of Dalby, near Milstead's Plough Inn, being allotment 1, of section 16, was knocked down for £68. There were no bids for the land at Campbell's Camp. BISieXATIOK OF AU>KBJIAN BOWEBUAIf. We understand that, on the return of his worship the Mayor to Dalby, Alderman Bower man will tender the resignation of his seat in the Municipal Council. The Government, it would appear, object to their officers holding municipal honors. Several persons are spoken of as likely to come forward; Alderman Nolan having gone in without opposition, aud at a time when many of the ratepayers who take a prominent part in local matters were listening to the eloquence of the Crown Prosecutor, his election is looked upon as a " fluke."

TOOWOOMBA (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

TOOWOOMBA (FROM OUR OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 21. STILL watching for rain! The gathering of distant clouds and other atmospheric changes have several times, during the past week, led us to look confidently for a breaking up of the up drought; but, with the exception of a slight sprinkle for the duration of about three minutes, we have been disappointed. In the neighbor hood- of Toowoomba everything is looking ex cessively bare and parched. The Ipswich carriers declare there is scarcely "a bite" of grass on the roadside lands Dense clouds of fine red dust float over our streets; teams and teamsters l^ok like ghostly shadows "passing through the mist," and our traffic is so con tinuous that our present existence is compara tively " a state of dust;" it insinuates itself into the most remote crannies of the household economy, and constitutes a portion of every thing we eat, drink, and breathe. Although this state of things exists in the neighborhood of the town, where the " horsey ...

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

GLADSTONE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 13. NOT seeing any account of my last, and being the largest despatch that ever left this office of the sayings and doings in this locality, I must presume it has been lost. I therefore epitomise epitomise some of the more important items of news, one or two of which hare had the effect of " blue pills" on the temperament of our billious neigh bors of Bockhampton, the last election dodge in particular hiring certainly kept them moving to a most unaccountable extent, not only a large steamer being taken out of her course to try to mitigate the working of the nauseous bolus, but even horses, with asses upon them, rushed to the scene of nomination overland from Book hampton to swell the number of hands—not electors—to get in Palmer. What sort of chivalry does your Brisbane Government profess, to give the Bockhainpton ites the opportunity to swamp us.

MASTERS AND SERVANTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

MASTERS AND SERVANTS ACT. THERE is no law in Queensland with regard to which so much uncertainty appears to exist, or so much difference of opinion is expressed amongst those appointed to administer it, as the l»w relating to masters and tcnuuti. Without alluding to the opposite decision* that h»ve been given by differ en t country benches, we find that at the late sittings of the district court in Too* woomba, judgment was given which was op* posed, in some important respects, to one pre viously given in tae Supreme Court. When high judicial authorities disagree, is it to be expected that justices of the peace should all read the law in the aame way ? It is much to be desired that some of the moot points on thin subject should be determined, «> that they could never after wards be made matter of question. The Masters and Servants Act gives ]>ower to " any two or more juptioe* in nny case to hear and' determine, in v summary manner, any complaint, difference, or dispute wh...

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

FORGERY. In this case the prisoner James alias William Robinson, pleaded not guilty to a charge of forg-<*> ing and uttering a cheque for £52 4s., purporting to be signed by one C.R. Haly. It appeared that on the 24th December, 1863, the prisoner went to the shop of one John Charles Davie?, a blacksmith, at Bonara, and requested to hare his horse shod. This was not done, but the prisoner afterwards said lie wanted a good roadster. He bought one for £30, and rewired , the horse and a cheque for £32, and for pay meut tendered the cheque in question. The ' cheque was dated 19th December, and was j signed with the genuine signature of C. B. j Haly, but the amount was altered from £8 18s. j 4cl. to £52 4*. The amount in words was not in Mr. Haly's handwriting, and the name of the payee was altered from Willis to Williams, part only of the word being in Mr. Haly's hand- ! writing. The prisoner stated that Mr. Haly j had gvicn him the cheque for fencing work or ' bush work of...

IMMIGRATION BOARD INQUIRY. AN inquiry was commenced on Friday, before the Immigration Board, into certain complaints which had been made in writing against the ship Wandrahm; and also into the general adminis- tration of the Immigration Laws. THE SHIP WANDRAHM. The inquiry respecting the Wandrahm was commenced by the Chairman (Mr. Darvall) reading the report of the Marine Surveyor on the ship. Alexander John Manson, marine surveyor under the quarantine regulations, was then examined. He said that he had made a survey of the ship Wandrahm, and the report just read was his. He explained at length several por- tions of the report. In reference to the accomo- dation, there were more bunks than there ought to have been, according to regulations as to space; the water-closets were not situated in the proper place ; there was no separate closet for the women ; the hospital was well arranged ; the lower berths were rather larger than the others.

THE CHARLIE PALMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE CHARLIE PALMER. This barque sailed from Plymouth on the evening of December 2, and on January 4, just 33 days out, crossed the Equator. Thence she made a run of 30 days to the meridian of the Cape of Good Hope. She ran down her easting, on the 46th parallel, and during that time had pleasant weather and the usual westerly winds. Off Cape Howe she met with strong northerly winds, which lasted for four days, and subse quently variable winds all up the Australian coast. She made Cape Moreton on March 16, and cast anchor in Brisbane Roads on the 18th. Generally the passage has been pleasant enough, and very little bad weather was ex perienced except when off the "Chops of the Channel." The Charlie Palmer brings 247 statute adult immigrants, who came out under the Imperial Commis sioners' regulations. The health of the pas sengers has been uniformly good, and only two deaths have occurred —one was an infant which was accidentally scalded, and the other an old woman who died from old ...

MINING NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

MINING NEWS. A correspondent at Expedition Creek says:— "This place is now more dry than ever; the Europeans have almost deserted it, and last week even the Chinese seemed to be of a like determination. In fact ten or twelve did clear out. We had, however, a smart shower on Sunday last, which, although it did no good in far as supplying us with water is concerned, seems to hare instilled the Chinese mind with the belief that there is more where that came   from; so, from whatever cause, the exodus is evidently arrested pro tem." The same correspondent informs us that   "Gregory's Creek remains without water. There is some little excitement on account of reports of rushes to any or all parts of the compass, but nothing definite is known with regard to them." We are requested to notice the trip of Laid- law's teams from Rockhampon to Clermont, as positively the quickest ever made.
