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

IPSWICH. THE Mercury, of March 28, says that the Rev. Mr. Piddington delivered a very able dis- course on Sunday evening last, to a crowded congregation, in the Wesleyan Chapel. The subject to which more immediate reference wm made was the lot of the Rev. D. W. Draper, who had been long and favorably known as a moat active and energetic minister in connection with the Wealeyan Church in New South Wales and Victoria. His loss is felt as a very severe one, and the manner in which he ministered consola tion to those who surrounded him on that most trying of all occasions, affords the best proof of the efficacy and power of the religion of which he was such an able advocate. We believe that Mr. Piddington had the honor of being long associated with the late Mr. Draper. We may mention' that Mr. Piddington, at the close of the service, announced that next Sabbath would terminate his pastoral charge of the Ipswich Wesleyan Church, he being about to be re moved to Brisbane. The same paper s...

TO GROWERS OF COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

TO GROWERS OF COTTON. THE Cotton Supply Association has issued the following address, and they solicit the newspaper press in all cotton-<*> growing countries to give insertion to it. At the close of the American war, a general expectation prevailed that large quantities of cotton would at once be obtained from the Southern States, which, together with the fall in price that then took place, was calculated to check production in other countries. These anticipated supplies have not been received, and, as regards the future, it appears certain that for years to come, owing to the altered condition of the United States, the abolition of slavery, and the adoption of free labor, there will be less cotton grown there than formerly, and much less than will be required. The in creased consumption in America must diminish the exports from that country, whilst still larger demands than at present may be expected both in England and on the Continent. It is mani fest, therefore, t...

THE LATE REV. D. J. DRAPER [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 31 March 1866

THE LATE REV. D. J. DRAPER THE Melbourne Age gives the following in- teresting biographical sketch of the late Rev. D.J. Draper, who was lost in the London:— The Rev. Daniel James Draper was a native of Hampshire, England. He entered the Wes- leyan ministry in 1834, and, after spending one year in an English circuit, he embarked for New South Wales, as a Wesleyan missionary, in the ship Baroolen, in October, 1853. Mr. Draper labored successively in Parramatta, Bathurst, and Sydney; and in each of these places he endeared himself, as a minister and a man, to all who came within the sphere of his in fluence. In 1846, Mr. Draper removed to Ade- laide, where he remained until 1855. The energy, zeal, and ability of Mr. Draper soon made itself felt, and its monument remains in the extension of Wesleyan Methodism, and the multiplication of chapels and ministers' resi- dences throughout that colony. The foremost position which the Wesleyan Church occupies in South Australia is acknowledged ...

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

CHARLEVILLE. I HAVE the pleasure at last to inform our readers of the safe arrival of H.M. Chester, Esq., C.C.L. and P.M. for this district; also, R. Cribb, Esq., C.P.S., Henry Lambert, Esq., In- specter of Police, Lieutenants Burne and Thornton, accompanied by a number of black trackers. I am sorry to state that some of our oldest townspeople have left us for a time en route to Roma to recruit their healths. The weather is intensely hot, and the flies are a nuisance both to man and beast. I hope our friends have not suffered such inconvience during their tour, but will shortly return invigorated in health and body by the change, which will give Roma a name like other inland watering-places in the old country for invalids. About a fortnight ago, on a moonlight night, the Native Police Barracks here was invaded by a warlike tribe of blacks owing to one of the black trackers eloping with one of the fair sex belonging to the tribe. The tracker received a severe wound with a spear, but ...

BOWEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

BOWEN. THE Port Denison Times of March 24 gives the following useful information:— IN a previous issue we expressed a hope that we should be able shortly to give some more detailed information respecting the Kennedy coal-fields. That hope has been resident through the kindness of a gentleman realised in the neighborhood, who will not permit us to give his name, but to whom the public are more indebted than they are aware for the interest he takes in these matters, and the energetic way in which he follows up that interest. This gentleman has favored us with an opportunity of perusing a report on (he subject sent in by Mr. Daintree after the tour of inspection which he completed hut January. In matters of this nature it is scarcely necessary to assure our readers that Mr. Daintree's opinion carries very great weight indeed. The report is too long to publish in extento, and, besides, contains a good deal of technical geological information that would not interest many of our readers, ...

GLADSTONE. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

GLADSTONE. (From the Correspondent of the Maryborough Chronicle.) THE late election still continues to agitate the public mind in Gladstone. Yesterday, at 9 am., the Returning Officer declared the state of the poll at the Court House. For some reason not known, the time of the announcement was kept very quiet, no notice having been posted up for public information; consequently but few people were present. Mr. Norton, the defeated candidate, had ridden from bis station on purpose to address the electors at the decla ration of the poll; but not being informed at what time the poll would be declared, was not present, and lost the opportunity of doing so. The Returning Officer declared A. H. Palmer to be dulj elected to represent the Port Curtis electorate in Parliament, he having a ma jority of 115 votes. The proceedings then ter minated.

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, March 24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

GAYNDAH. (From the Burnett Argus, March 24.) A LITTLE more life and animation has been observable in town during the past week, and may in great part be attributed to the return of those of our follow townsmen from Mary- Mary borough, -who had to attend as witnesses at the assizes iv that town. Continued drought and easterly winds hare almost perished all the grass in and around the town. The gardens are all quite cleared of vege tables, and it is now too late to plant most things, cren if rain were to fall; but from all appearances, there is no chance of a " pluvial natation" of short or long duration. On Wednesday week Mr. Bligh and Mr. Fal coner left town with the intention of visiting Eidswold quartz reefs, and returned to Gayndah on Saturday. One result of the visit is, that the reefs are now regarded by the police magis tiate as a great fact, and we hope some action will be taken to have the place proclaimed a gold-field, for it is one undoubtedly, and we dare to say a very ri...

MARYBOROUGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

MARYBOROUGH. THE Chronicle of the 4th instant states:— "We understand that Woodlands has changed hands, and that the boiling down establish-<*> ment there will this season be carried on by the steaming process, and every new appliance for the extraction of the largest amount of tallow in the best possible condition. The price of tallow is such that, notwithstanding the demand for lire stock for exportation, it id expected a large number of cattle will be sent to " pot," and it is to be hoped that Mary borough will have its share this season, of the business which has been lost to us of late, chiefly because the process referred to has been adopted in other establishments, whilst in ours the old method has been adhered to. As all this is now changed, we Bay, we ought to hare • good share of this season's boiling.

The Queenslander. SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1866. The Parliament will assemble on Tues-<*> day next for the commencement of another session. The Vice-regal speech and the Ministerial explanation are both looked forward to with much interest. The usual course of laying before the House the iacts connected with the change of Ministry will be the first business of the session, and it is expected that Mr. Macalisteb will take the opportunity of stating the policy of the present Government It is generally un derstood that the course pursued by the late Government was likely to lead the colony into financial difficulties, and that consequently the principal work of the ensuing session will be one of enquiry with a view to ascertaining the working of several of the late Acts of Parliament. The District Courts Act, for instance, will cost the country over .£20,000 per annum if any attempt is made to carry it out, but fortunately it has proved so cumbrous and inefficient that it has d...

A PLOUGHMAN ON A PLOUGHMAN'S LIFE. FROM the Caledonian Mercury we quote, with the greatest pleasure, a manly, sensible, forcible speech made by one Thomas Ewing, ploughman, at a meeting held in the Free School-room, Davidson's Mains, to consider what steps should be taken to obtain an adrance of wages. Mr. Ewing said:—Forgive me, gentlemen, but the hon. chairman has taken the bit out of mj mouth (Laughter). Fellow-ploughmen and laborers, having lately heard about a certain "P.A.," who has been writing to the newspapers about the improvement of. the position of the ploughman, I am here to give a brief statement for myself, I being a ploughman near the enlightened city (A laugh). My fee is £22 a year, with two pecks of meal per week, whiles very inferior indeed, (laughter), with a forpit of potatoes for each day. Including the rations and wages altogether, not speaking of the house, for it is a very heavy rent to pay for one risking one's life in, I hare the sum of £29 49.; and if you...

THE RAILWAY "ACCIDENT" CASES OF THE YEAR 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866

THE RAILWAY "ACCIDENT " CASES OF THE YEAR 1865. MORE than the average number of actions against railway companies, in cases of accidents arising from collision or otherwise, were brought to trial during the lest year (it is stated in the Railway Newt), and in many of them the damages awarded a» compensation for personal injuries, as well as loss of life, have been re markable for their huge amount. In one in- Btance, however, the verdict is noteworthy for the smallness of the damages given. It was an action against the Metropolitan Railway Com pany for the loss of a wife who was killed on the railway. The verdict given was for one shilling only. This was spoken of, both in and out of court, as "an absurdly inadequate amount," if it was intended to represent the value of the loss the plaintiff had suffered through the death of a wife (the mother of three chil dren) ; but the Court of Queen's Bench refused a new trial, considering that the jury, or some of them, had probably thought t...
