GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATIONS. THE following items are taken from the Government Gazette of Saturday, March 17:— GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AND THE PRESS.—   The following minute, in reference to the above subject, has been published by command of his Excellency the Governor:—At the Government House, Brisbane, on the 28th February, 1866. Present: His Excellency the Governor in Coun- cil. His Excellency the Governor, at the in- stance of the Vice-President, directs the atten- tion of the Council to a notice which appeared in the Governmemt Gazette of the 28th July, 1860, No. 43, warning officers of the Civil Service of Queensland against attending political meetings, and taking part in political agitations, and to the fact that the Government have recently ascertained that at least two officers in the service of this colony, either through inad- vertence or wilfully, have given countenance and support to political newspapers.

THE BRISBANE BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 24 March 1866

THE BRISBANE BRIDGE. HOLDING a conspicuous place among the nu-<*> merous public works which have been initiated in this colony since the date of its separation from New South Wales, is the Bridge which is to connect the two sections of this city. Many hare been the arguments adduced in favor of it; few hare been the objections raited against its erection. The work has now assumed such an im portant position, both as regards the interests of the people of Brisbane and Ipswich, and as one in which the capitalists of the London market are concerned, that we propose to devote a few lines to the history of it from the date of the passing of the Act authorising its construction to the present time. Oar object in doing so is twofold —firstly, to satisfy the incredulous on the subject, that s permanent bridge will be carried out, and, secondly, to prore to those who hare prominently interested themselres in the matter that what may hare, according to their views, assumed the a...

MURDER ON THE HIGH SEAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

MURDER ON THE HIGH SEAS. THE schooner Tamar Queen, 103 tons register, from the Azores, arrived here this morning under charge of Mr. Thomas Pickard, who was assisted only by Samuel Brown, A.B., and the cabin boy. This vessel has been engaged loading fruit at the Island of St. George's, and had part of her cargo on board. On tbc 2nd instant they had to slip their moorings in consequence of heavy weather. At that time the crew consisted of Mr. Tremhills, the master, Thomas Pickard, mate, William Hart, and Bamuel Brown, able sacmen, and a cabin boy about 15. One of the crew, who left England in her, was ashore sick, in the hospital, at Fayal, and the British Con sul at St. George's sent on board in his place a Portuguese seamen, or boatman, about 35 ! rears of age, who had been assisting in oading the vessel. This man was discontented from the first. He took no meals regularly, and would not go below to sleep. He wished to be •eat ashore while they were working about be tween the islan...

THE LATE MR. G. V. BROOKE. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE LATE MR. G. V. BROOKE. (From the Times.) THE tragic actor, whose sad fate and gallant conduct formed one of the most striking inci-<*> dents connected with the wreck of the London, was born in 1819, and, having shown an early predilection for the stage, made, it is said, his first appearance at the Theatre Royal in his native city, Dublin, in 1833. The character selected was William Tell, in Mr. KnowleV play of that name, which seems so singularly ill-fitted for a boy of 14, that we may surmise •a inaccuracy in one of the above dates. Nevertheless his performance was sufficiently successful to lead to an engagement. After playing m two other cities of Ireland he pro ceeded to Scotland, and there acquired a repu tation which even reached London. An engage ment at the Victoria Theatre was the conse auence of his fame in the sister kingdoms, and He seems to have delighted the audiences on the southern bank of the Thames by twelre performances of Virginius. His success...

Miscellaneous. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PASSENGERS AND GUARDS ON RAILWAYS. A NUMBER of gentlemen connected with rail-<*> ways and others interested in the subject met at the terminus of the North-Western Railway, Euston-square, for the purpose of witnessing some experiment* with HowelTs patent oommu nication between passengers and guards on railways. Mr. Howell, the patentee, waa pre sent, and the apparatus was exhibited and ex plained most satisfactorily by Mr. de Russel. The apparatus consists of a brass tube running underneath the carriage for it* whole length. This is joined to a similar tube in the next car riage bj a piece of india-rubber tubing, and so on for the whole length of the train. Thus a continuous pipe runs along underneath the car riages, closed at the further end and terminating tathe opposite extremity in the smoke-box of the engine. Here it joins the blast-pipe, by means of which all the air in the tube is quickly ex hausted, and the yacuum maintained...

TURNED TO THE WALL. CHAPTER V. THE SQUIRE'S STORY. BY JOHN FRANCIS WALLER. "YOU say truly, Herbert: she was a lovely woman; lovelier even than she looks in that picture. When my wife died, many years ago, she left me three children—two sons, as you know, and a daughter—the girl whose portrait you hare just been look | ing at. The lore I bore my dear Alice ! would have gone down into the grave > with her, but that her little pet, Lucy, was left —so liko. yet so unlike, her mother, to §port about me and keep the lore for woman from dying out altogether from my heart. To the lore for the pretty child was added, as the grew up, tho pride in the lovely girl ripening into womanhood. I knew well that, with the ad vantages of birth and fortune which she pos sessed, I had but to choose amongst the best blood of the land for her husband. Well, from time to time she went np to London to a relative, a widow lady, both to avail herself of the best masters, and to enjoy the society of the metr...

THE JANUARY STORMS. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE JANUARY STORMS. (From the Times.) NEVER, perhaps, within Living memory has a new year been ushered in with so dismal a series of disasters at sea. The shipwrecks of the last fortnight exceed both in frequency and fatality any that have occurred daring a like period since the terrific storms towards the close of the year 1859. From all parts of the coast, from Liverpool, from Plymouth, from Tor bay, from Shields, from Great Yarmouth, from Lowestoft, we have received, day after day, the most heartbreaking descrip tions of havoc and ruin among the •hip ping, and up to the beginning of the pre sent week, the estimates of total losses already ranged Between three and four hundred. On Wednesday hist, we reported in the same cohntn the utter destruction of two magnificent ocean steamers, the Lon don and the Amalia, both of which foundered in the Bay of Biscay, within twenty-four hours of each other, under circumstances so exactly similar that the two narratives read almost like one.

GLADSTONE. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

GLADSTONE. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) THE steamships Lady Darling and Salamander arrived yesterday, much to our surprise, as we had given up all hopes of seeing the latter any more—not that the passage has been long, passage long, quite the reverse ; but the delays in her depar ture have been so frequent. As for the Lady Darling, we never expected her, as the Northern Arqut stated she was bound for Rockhampton, but how she was to get there, the writer in his hurry forgot to state. The cattle for the Sala mander hare been in town for more than a month, and you may depend they have not im proved by the change of air, as that sort of passengers don't believe in the salubrity of our climate, without feed. But Mr. Lowe, the •hipping manager, was not to be caught nap ping, so he procured a fresh mob, and sent those in town to pastures new, on Lilley Island. This is, as it ought to be, for these ships are bound to Melbourne ; and this being the first shipment to...
