News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Thursday, March 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

News and Notes. BY A SYDNEY MAN. Thursday, March 22. HAPPENING to look at the almanac, as is my wont, I find it recorded by the Brisbane Courier's issue of that calendar for 1868 that on "Thursday, March 28, Sir C. Fitzroy visited Moreton Bay, 1864." Bo it is just twelve yean ago to-day—day of the week and all cor responding — sinoe that event occurred. Though time fties swifty enough, Good neas knows, the circumstance appears to one's mind to be of still more re mote antiquity. It was a "great day for Brisbane" when the representative not only of the reigning sovereign, but, in some sense, the representative of a sovereign of a by-gone day, Of whom it had been said that he was in more sense than one the father of his people, rode into town escorted by a cavalcade of whom it may be said that if they did not witch the world witk>noble horsemanship, they puzzled a great many people in that part of the world to guess how they had got up and how they proposed to get down again. It wa...

News by the Mail. FASHIONS AND GOSSIP. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) London, January. BY this time everyone has wished his or her neighbor a happy new year. The usual amount of plum pudding (terrifying compound) and mince pies has been eaten, and the usual effects of indigestion and biliousness produced for the benefit of the doctors, who now look to Christmas as a gol den time. The pantomimes have all been seeu and criticised, Drury-lane being unani mously pronounced as being the one par excellence iv respect of acting, dresses, and scenery. All the children have been home for their holidays; and only in en joying the fresh and unsatiated delight of the little ones in the amusements and gourmanderie of the season, do their seniors find their own gratification. As for •weather —a theuie on which you know we English are compelled to expatiate—wehave had a uniform dull atmosphere, varied by the now customary fog aud rains of Decem ber.

THE FIRST ANTI-SLAVERY MEETING IN SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE FIRST ANTI-SLAVERY MEETIN G IN SPAIN. THE correspondent of the Morning Star writes, "Yesterday was a day that will be long remembered in Spain by the lovers of the good cause of the abolition of slavery, and the result of the first public meeting held in Madrid with this motive will most surely gladden the hearts of those in England, who, looking from afar with anxious interest as to the progress of this new idea in Spain, may now hail the rising of a sun of promise, forerunner of glorious results. The society received the several eloquent and moving addresses from the Ladies' Negroes' Friend Society of London, from the Ladies' Emancipation Bociety of Edinburgh, of the Ladies' Anti- Slavery Society of Birmingham, the Ladies' Negroes' Friend Society of Newcastle-upon- Tyne, and from the Ladies' Freedman's Friend Society of Paris, and, anxious to present these earnest appeals to the ladies of Madrid without loss of time, conceived as the best mode of so doing the calling of a gene...

WATER POLICE COURT. THURSDAY, MARCH 29. BEFORE the Water Police Magistrate. KILLING A PIG ON BOARD THE SHIP LIGHT OF THE AGE.- James Rielly was charged with this offence. The evidence for the prosecution was the following:—J. Smith, a passenger on following :—J. Smith, a passenger on board the above ship, deposed that about 12 o'clock one night, while at sea, the prisoner took a pig out of the pig-house, and struck it heavily on the head with some instrument; he did not report the circumstance to the captain until some time afterwards. For the defence, Robert Alison swore that Bill Nichol killed the Sig, and not the prisoner, who bad nothing to ft with it. William Nichol said that the pigs often got out of their pen and annoyed the sea men by coming into the forecastle and eating their food; a pig came into the forecastle one night, and he and Alison killed it.

News of the Week. A MEETING of the Young Men's Christian As- sociation was held on the 23nd instant. The subject of conversation was "God in History;" it was introduced by Mr. W.J. Costia. The essayiat said there were two classes, one of which tried to blind their eyes, and would not acknow- ledge God's providence; the other class de- lighted to mark God's ways, to look back and see how He had dealt with man.

THE CAPTAIN'S RIDE. A TALE OF LIFE IN TEXAS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE CAPTAIN'S RIDE. A TALE OF LIFE IN TEXAS. WE select the following from a very readable book, published by Maxwell and Co., Fleet-<*> street, entitled "The Texan Rifle Hunter, or Field Sports on the Prairie, by Captain Flack ("the Banger"), late of the Texan Hangers." Captain Flack is an Englishman who has spent fifteen years in Texas, following the occupation of a w mighty hunter." His adrentores, which Me of the most interesting kind, are narrated in a graceful and spirited manner :— When Texas was a Mexican province it was •carcely inhabited at all by civilised people. A stray fort here and there, as at Anahuac and Vaksco, was garrisoned by Mexican soldiers ; and near them, under the protection of their guns, a few adobe (wattle and daub) houses wero built. Two towns, San Antonio de JBexar and San Felipe de Bexar, with the missions of Hefugio and San Patrieio (established by some Jesmst priest as early as 1660) were the princi pal Inland settlements.

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, MARCH 31, 1866. THE commercial news received by the English mail is more favorable than was expected in its bearings upon die financial prospects of this colony. The immense impetus given to the manufacturing trades in England by the cessation of the American war is having a direct influence upon our interests in two very opposite ways. The private income of the colony is increased by a rise in the price of wool, and the public revenue is adversely affected by a fall in the price of debentures. The great increase in the* export trade has absorbed so much capital, that the rate of interest has gone up to 8 per cent.; and in the English funds Consols have gone down to 87 h Of course all foreign borrowers must feel the effect of this, and it is observable in the quotations of foreign stocks, yet our debentures remained at par* The state of the English money market is of especial interest to us so long as we have unsold debentures in the market, the disposal ...

PARIS GOSSIP. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) PARIS, January 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

PARIS GOSSIP. (FROM A CORRESPONDENT.) PARIS, January 27. AN illustrated paper called the La Vic Parisienne, which gives us a weekly pic-<*> ture of the manners and customs of the times, gave us at the close of the year a picture of the departed 1865, which is represented by an old man with a white beard, driven away by a beautiful child. How many of us are anxious to drive away the old year, with its cares and anxieties, to welcome the new one, with the hope it -will be better than the last. The Ist of January has at last arrived, with its processions of beggars, all wishing for v new year's gift; but I must tell you how the old year went off. To tell the trutli* 18(35 left us in a surly manner, for the month of December brought us fogs worthy of the capital of Great Britain, ami the omnibus and cab drivers were in great perplexity to find their way.

The Novelist. MORELY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXIII. HAWKSHAW'S OLD FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

The Novelist. MORELY ASHTON. CHAPTER XXIII. HAWKSHAW'S OLD FRIENDS. BY CAPTAIN JAMES GRANT. ONE day, Ethel, inspired perhaps by Hawk-<*> shaw's evil Genius, expressed a wish to go for-<*> ward and see what she termed "the front part of the ship." Her papa and Dr. Ueriot were near; but aa Hawkshaw had a jealous dislike of Heriot's at tention to the sisters, and Mr. Basset had no desire to take more trouble than waa absolutely necessary, tho ex-captain drew closer to her, on which she said— " Please take me to see it." Eawkshaw, though he would almost as soon hare walked into a furnace, gave his hand reluctantly to Ethel, pulled his newly-donned white wide-awake down over his eyes, and led her forward from the sanctum of the quarter deck. Though in no way enchanted with her cava lier, Ethel, with a minuteness that, to him, was alike distressing and provoking, insisted on examining everything in this new region of the ship. The capstan, with its drumhead, pa...

EXPANSION OF THE AMERICAN TRADE. (From the Times, January 12.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

EXPANSION OF THE AMERICAN TRADE. (From the Times, January 12.) WE cannot be surprised that the caution against an undue extension of a trade pro-<*> ceeding on a credit basis, which we lately addressed to exporters to America, should exporters America, be treated in some quarters as wholly un necessary. Those who are in the business are, of course, unwilling that a doubt should be thrown upon the permanency of its profitableness, and they are sure to find plenty to back them in the unbelief which is so gratefnl to their hopes. All sorts of sinister interpretations of what are, after all, mere common-place warnings can be hazarded, and political prejudices can be freely introduced to disturb the considera tion of a purely economic question. We shall be very glad, indeed, if our caution proves unnecessary through more circum spectness on the pjtrt of our exporting merchants, and, however unpleasant may be the character of a false prophet, we are ready to be persuaded tha...

CLERMONT. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

CLERMONT. WE have received the Peak Downs Telegram of March 10, from which we extract the fol-<*> lowing:— The ground has now become so thirsty that a heavy shower it of slight benefit, the water all getting absorbed in a few hours, and conse quently men are tired of waiting, and hare act off on a wild goose chase for some supposed gold field near Cleveland Bay. It is known that within the last few weeks at least four hundred men hare loft our digging! for the North. A correspondent at Expedition Greek reports, under yesterday's date, that the Chinese are clearing out fast. Drinking water has to be carted three miles. There is not the slightest sign of rain. News reached town on Monday evening last that on the morning of that day the remains of two shepherds had been found by Mr. Walker, on Cotherstono run. From the mutilated ap pearance of the bodies, the men had evidently been murdered by the blacks. Mr. Walker at once sent word to town, and the same night a messenge...

THE LIGHT OF THE AGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE LIGHT OF THE AGE. The Light of the Age left the Clyde on December 10, and was fortunate in getting fine weather and fair winds until clear of the land. Off Madeira she fell in with southerly winds by which she lost a week. She came down between the Canary Islands, and passed on the eastern side of the Gape Verde Islands, and had strong North-east Trades until she made the "Vari-   ables." While in the equatorial regions she was detained by calms, and did not cross the Line until the 31st day out. The South-east Trades were very light, but the passage was lost between Trinadad and the meridian of Greenwich, where for ten days she was unable to make more than 66 miles per diem, owing to baffling winds. On the 39th day from the line she passed the meri- dian of the Cape of Good Hope, on February 18. Her easting was run down in 47 degrees south, with moderate winds and fine weather, and occupied 24 days. She rounded the south ex- treme of Tasmania on the 14th March, and...

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

TOOWOOMBA. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) DENSE masses of cloud, have passed over us morning after morning, dispersing in a slight drizzle before the sun, so that we have nothing to record but a continuation of sunshine and dost. Sunset has sometimes giren us shadowy hopes of storms and changes, but these hopes hare been scattered, and clear skies unshadowed by a single cloud hare followed with a ♦■■"^"iwg regularity. Everybody has over and over again expressed their conviction that " we are going to hare rain at last," bat everybody has bean disappointed and thoroughly convinced of the fallacy of human forecasts. The plough is still busily at work, but a Task stimulus would be given to the work if we were favored with a fall of rain. In many instances an entire suspension has been necessary, as the work cannot be satisfactorily performed; others have persisted, as they anticipate a multitude of urgent duties should their long sustained ex* pectations of a soaking rain receive an ear...

A NIGHT IN A WORKHOUSE. (From the Pall Mall Gazette.) I. AT about 9 o'clock on the evening of Monday, the 8th January, a neat but unpretentious car-<*> riage might have been seen turning cantiously from the Kennington-road into Prince's-road, Lambeth. The curtain* were closely drawn, and the coachman wore on unusually responsible air. Approaching a public-house, which re treated a little from the street, he pulled upi bat not so dese that the lights should fall on the carriage door ; not so distant as to unsettle the mind of anyone who chose to imagine that he had halted to drink beer before proceeding to call for the children at a juvenile pvty; He. did not dismount, nor did any one alight in the usual way ; but any keen obserTer who hap pened to watch his intelligent countenance might hare seen a furtive glance directed to the wrong door—(hat is to say, to the door of the carriage which opened to the darjl and muddy road.
