NOTES ON THE DARLING RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

NOTES ON THE DARLING RIVER. A BESIDENT on the Darling has kindly sup-<*> plied us (Adelaide Observer, February 24.) with the following interesting information on the state of the river and the Riverine trade:— Having seen in the Observer an extract from a private letter headed *' Such is Life," giving a description of a small boat of that name, and ' having gleaned the following particulars of their perilous voyage, which may not be uninterest ing, I beg to forward them to you, as I believe the navigation of the River Darling was never Attempted under such unfavorable circum stances. I will presume that the description of the boat as given by the extract above referred to will be fresh in the recollection of jour readers, and will not trouble them with a repe tition, but will merely state that she did not draw quite six inches of water. Having made a fair start, they had not proceeded more than a mile when the first difficulty occurred—a rocky fell, over which there wa...

THE LAND BILL OF 1866. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE LAND BILL OF 1866. (COMMUNICATED.) A COMPREHENSIVE Land Bill is to be the great card of the coming session; and cer-<*> tainly the experience of the present sea-<*> son will not be lost altogether if Ministers and members generally have visited the farming districts during the recess, and have learnt from actual observation the necessity of making as light as possible the burdens of the humbler classes, whose especial mission it appears to be to intro duce agriculture into the various districts of the colony as they are opened up; and to pursue that industry in the older-settled districts. It is true we have here and there a wealthy sugar or cotton planter, but the bulk of the agriculture of the colony is performed by the humbler classes, and it is to them we would invite the attention of the legislature during the coming session. The agricultural reserves from their first establishment have been an advantage to the bona fide settler. This has been di...

THE LOGAN. March 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE LOGAN. March 29. A SMALL chapter of accidents and a bad name seems to be the propitiation the Logan offers for the wrath of the fates this autumnal equinox. A serious fire to a farmer's buildings, buildings, which totally consumed all before it, an acci dental death from a snake bite, another from burning caused by crinoline—all in the week, and closely following the death by drowning, and that of the fanner's wife I mentioned bet week—surely this is enough without an Ipswich paper trying to make capital out of as by quoting the Logan River in a way so one aided that to the merest traveller amongst our agri culturists, the whole assertion will go for nothing. Just because there is one case, or two at the farthest, of persons having taken up land that ought never to have done so, the whole river gets blamed; and as for cattle and horses Ac., Ac, disappearing so mysteriously, I can only say that nothing has ever been found out or proven beyond the loss of a few pumpkins and three ...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) March 29. ANOTHER week has passed, and we seem still as far from rain as ever. The whole of the week has been cloudy during the day, and one or two morning's there were slight showers; I not, however, amonnting to so much as the dews ' usual at this time of the year. The last linger j ing hope for the potatoes andcorn is fast passing ' away, and in another week or ten days will en ! tirely be gone ; and there is not much hope of | grass for the winter unless we have speedy | relief. Water is becoming very scarce, and i will soon be so low at the only available sources j of supply as to be dangerous for cattle unless care is taken to prevent them becoming bogged. The weak state of the cattle about will mate rially increase this danger. As a result of the drought, farming opera ; tions are nearly at a stand-still, though at present we cannot be said to have ex perienced very much of the evils which will assuredly come be...

BISHOP COLENSO AT THE CATHEDRAL. (From the Times of Natal.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

BISHOP COLENSO AT THE CATHEDRAL. (From the Times of Natal.) AS soon as the result of the interview between the Bishop and Churchwardens was made known in the city, public curiosity was aroused, it being quite uncertain what steps would be steps taken by the party generally known as " the Dean's party." It was well known that the Dean caused the communion-plate to be removed from the cathedral, and it was reported that the harmonium and seats would also be removed. As it subsequently turned out, the harmonium and seats remained, but we under stand the former was locked. Saturday evening came, and still it was uncertain what would be done, and whether the Bishop would really meet with any opposition. All classes deprecated the idea of anything like a scene taking place on the Bunday, and we believe curiosity was the more excited because so many who took neither side in the controversy were anuous that a venerable and much-respected church should not be scandalised. It should be notice...

The Farm & the Garden. OPERATIONS FOR APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

The Farm & the Garden. OPERATIONS FOR APRIL. ALTHOUGH the weather, before and after sun-<*> set especially, has become sensibly cooler since the 20th, on which date the autum of Queensland commenced, but the oft-threatened rain has not oomo, and we fear the chances for a good winter planting are frail indeed. It would be a singular circumstance if the seasons should drive us into a oloicr attention to tho cultivation of cotton than has yet been given to it. Of •» certainty, that crop will be the most remunerative taken from the soil this season. Maize near the coiat, around Toowoomba£bd on the Downs generally, has done pretty well, and will yield a fair crop but in the majority of oases, so far as we have seen, the average return will not go over twenty bushels to the acre. Low returns and falling markets may do for us what nothing else could; and we trust the time has arrived for cotton to receive that attention our farmers have been so shy of according to it....

GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

GRAPE VINE CULTIVATION. FRUCTUS. AT first sight, and especially to a stranger, it seems to savour somewhat of imperti-<*> nence for a local horticulturist to attempt to say anything respecting the Grape Vine and its culture, while we are in possession of the treatises of Kelly, Maro, Marie, and Btterrao, from the neighboring colonies, and a flood of European literature on the subject But the truth is, that we have much to learn, in Queensland, after all the assistance we can obtain from foreign sources ; and this information will be most speedily acquired by cultivators, whether amateur or professional, comparing notes by the way. As many persons are planting—and others about to plant—the Grape, as the season comes on the writer has thrown together these few rough notes as his present contribution to such comparison. WHEN TO PLANT. The sooner the cuttings are obtained and planted after the parent vines are at rest, the better. If growers had planted in June or early Ju...

The Victoria, m the oldest dab, naturally contains most of the best players, and though the Caxton en also boast of some who stand in the first raak, yet the former has had its ownwayerery tune the two hare met.
