THE LONDON. THE LESSORS OF ITS LOSS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
THE LONDON. THE LESSORS OF ITS LOSS. GLORY to God for all He wills beneath His awful skies! Even when His savage, weltering seas and His fierce storms arise: Alike in calm and tempest, on ocean and on land, Children, we trust in perfect faith the guidance of His hand; We murmur not thai He who gare our day* should stay our breath, Whate'er He gires we blew His gifts, or be they lif« or death; Even when we hear ring in our ears, ring through the murky air, That smothered shriek, that sinking cry, those hundreds' wild despair. Not faithless, do we doubt His lore, we crea tures of the dust, In good and ill, in life and death, alike in Him we trust; Why agony like this should be we see with vision dim, With sulking hearts, but, it is good, our faith is firm in Him. The storm is calm, the pain is past, and for the night away, We trust His lore has gives to these the bright ness of His day. Glory to God! He gires to us the lesion these hare left, To us who lire—the nobleness they showed o...

Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
Country Intelligence. OXLEY CREEK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 6. THE weather has been very hot during the past week, much more so than is usual at this time of year. At times the sky has been com-&lt;*> pletely overcast, but the clouds have all passed off without any rain, and at the present the sky is quite dear, without any hope of immediate rain. There it a large area of land in this dis trict prepared for cropping, much of the land made ready with the intention of planting with potatoes not having been planted, or if planted Wing failed so much as to leare no alternative but to plant with some other crop. What to do with this land so as to tare the labor already expended on it will occupy the serious con sideration of the farmers. The majority of it will no doubt be sown with oaU fo» hay, which is the only crop available until spring, and the rest will either be planted with garden produce, as cabbages, turnips, Ac.; or else be left; over and planted early in...

THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
THE LOGAN. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) April 5. LAST Thursday afternoon, about 4 o clock, as two Germans respectively named Willert and Heinze, were cutting an old tree down at the German settlement, a little boy, aged seven boy, aged yesrs, the son of Willert, met with an accident which caused death the day after. The tree in falling went across a paling fence, and one of the palings rose from the force of the tree and hit little Willert on the side of the ribs. The boy was cot knocked down, neither did he say that he was hurt in answer to a question from his father. However, after having a quiet night's sleep he complained of a pain in the side, and said that he was going to die, ™*in^r, some allusion to a coffin that he should want. The little fellow must have had some peculiar internal injury, for he died on Friday morning I about 7 o'clock, expressing his satisfaction that he was "to Himmel going." Indeed there is something so poetically imaginative in this child's story of a...

THE TOOWOOMBA HOSPITAL. (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) Toowoomba, April 1. I ACCORDING to instructions, on Saturday I waited on the treasurer of the Toowoomba Hospital, touching certain rumors concerning the state of that institution, and especially in , reference to some correspondence which ap peared in the Queemtlamd Time* on the 27th and the 31st ult. Mr. Taylor at once declared that the committee of the institution courted public inspection, and volunteered his belief that the surest way of getting at the truth of the whole matter was by a personal inspection of the hos pital—thus falling in with my instructions , precisely. Monday is one of the regular visiting days; but as I could not conveniently stay in town till then, an appointment was made to visit the hospital the same (Saturday) evening. At 5 o'clock, in company with Messrs. Groom and Taylor, I left the office of the former gentleman, and reaching the hospital, went over the wards, Ac, with the following result:— The pat...

Commercial Intelligence. DURING the last week or two, many vessels have arrived at Sydney from San Francisco, pouring breadstuff's into the market, and the is a de- consequence preciation in the prices for Californian and Chilian, which are now quoted fully £2 lower. In liquors there is not much to notice. Some speculation has taken place in brandies, and prices are firmer, while pale bulk brandies hare advanced. Gin and whisky remain steady at former quotations, and the only important transaction we hare heard of in rum is the sale of a shipment of 25 hogsheads, ex Legion of Honor, at 3s 3d, by auction- Bulk beer is unaltered, but some small parcels of the new brew are to hand, which command 10s to 12s 6d orer old stocks.

MIXED HUSBANDRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
MIXED HUSBANDRY. A CONTRIBUTOR to the Western Post, of March 15, writes as follows on this subject:— Theories formed by the observation of the in-&lt;*> telligent, though often at variance with popular opinion, would, if acted upon, sometime* be pro ductive of more solid and lasting benefit than the old and practical systems of those who claim experience, though productive of no special benefit, as their sole guide. Yet, doubtless ex perience, when not misapplied, is a firm founda tion upon which to build a certain success. My attention has but lately been called to some new ideas among the owners of land in the New Eng land country —I believe small holders—to the advantages derivable from a system of mixed husbandry, and the introduction of small flocks of sheep upon their farms. I shall allude at pre sent to holders in this district, where the above mentioned innovation would be found extremely beneficial. Tenants, or others around us, at present confine their operation...

THE COTTON HARVEST AROUND IPSWICH. (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
THE COTTON HARVEST AROUND IPSWICH. (FROM OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) NO. II. A VERY short acquaintance with the sub-&lt;*> ject convinces one that the great hinderance to cotton growing in this colony has been the heavy outlay attending cultivation. attending Not that the expenses are greater for the production of this crop than any other; but because—except in one or two cases— a most erroneous impression got abroad at first concerning it—an impression which fortunately no longer exists ; and all who enter upon the business hereafter will have themselves .only to blame should they make a mistake on the subject. To this source of expense may be traced the fact that the small growers who did their own labor have stuck to cotton-growing with greater zest than the capitalists who entered upon the same branch of cultivation, incurring a heavy pecuniary outlay in the first instance. It is always a trying state of affairs where " all goes out and nought comes in;" and especially so ...
