SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VII. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
SERICULTURE IN QUEENSLAND. NO. VII. BY MRS. A. TIMBRELL. A NEPHEW of Mr. John Deane Wells, of Talbot, Victoria, writing from Darjeeling, in Bengal, under date 13th November, 1864, says: —" The moth cuts its way out of the cocoon in about eight days after the cessation of its being formed (the cocoon). It lays its eggs and dies, the eggs hatch yery quickly, and the worms should be fed on mulberry leaf, chopped fine; the young tender leares should be selected for use. The worm, casts it* skin three times dur ing its growth, as it grows exceedingly tut, and the skin cannot grow (or stretch) sufficiently fast to keep up with the growth of thi body. At each of these times the worm is subject to fever, and often SO per cent, die at one or other of these stages. After the last change the worm in a day or two begins to get restless, re fuses its food, and constantly raises its head, and appears to search for small branches or something of the sort on which to commence its cocoon.

TASMANIA. (From the Cornwall Chronicle, March 24.) WEECKERS. —EXTRAORDINARY CASE.—Henry Weight and Emily Lippiatt were brought up at the Police Office, Launceston, on Thursday, charged with stealing a quantity of goods from the wreck of the three-masted schooner Arrow, on King's Island.

The captain and crew were saved, and they went on to Melbourne, leaving Weight, formerly an assistant at the lighthouse, in charge of the wreck.

HOBART TOWN. (From Mr. James Smith's Impressions of Tasmania.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
HOBART TOWN. (From Mr. James Smith's Impressions of Tasmania.) I HAVE heard the view of Hobart Town from the water compared to that of Genoa from the Gulf; but, while fully acknowledging the architectural superiority of "Genoa la Superba," superiority Superba," with iU magnificent palaces rising from the water's edge, and ascending, tier above tier, like the seats in an amphitheatre, I must candidly confess that the natural beauties of the southern capital of Tasmania are superior to those of its Italian rival. The semicircular sweep of the Biriera id rery fine, but the irregular outlines of the estuary of the Derwent, with its jutting promontories and swelling hills, and background of mountains, is, I should imagine, perfectly unique; while the undulating surface of the city conduces immensely to its pictureaqueness. And over all, there looms the gigantic figure of the mountain, with its head in the clouds and its feet in the sea, filling the eye with its rast proportions, and impr...
NEW ZEALAND. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT DUNEDIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
NEW ZEALAND. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT DUNEDIN. BY way of Sydney we have received details of the destructive fire which took place at Dunedin on the 4th ultimo, and by which twenty-three houses and shops were burned down. The fire originated, it was believed, in the kitchen of the Caledonian Boarding-house, Maclaggan-street, where it is stated a light was thrown into a vessel containing grease. Another account is that the fire began in one of the bed rooms of the house. The conflagration was so rapid that the lodgers were glad to escape, leaving their money and clothes behind ; and a sick man was saved with great difficulty, having to be helped through one of the windows. In less than half an hour from the alarm, s»vb the Otago Daily Time*, " the Scandinavian Hotel on one side, and the Melbourne Hotel on the other, were blazing; the remains of the Caledonian having settled now into a steady glare, marking a division between the two sections of fierce fire. The heat at this time was terrif...

Extracts from the Papers. OUR LAND LAWS. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Queenslander — 7 April 1866
Extracts from the Papers. OUR LAND LAWS. (From the Courier.) FROM various channels of information, it appears that there is a tendency and grow-&lt;*> ing inclination amongst the farming popu-&lt;*> lation and small capitalists in Victoria to desert that colony and depart for America. Various are the reasons assigned for this, according to the different classes to which the emigrants belong. That several shop keepers should have taken their departure for the big Republic, as local papers inform us they have, is by no means surprising, because it is well known to even the most casual observer that in all the Australian Colonies the number of shopkeepers has.always increased in a far greater ratio than the wants of the population. This was so with South Australia, it is the case at the present moment in Victoria, and tbA. records of the Insolvency Court in Queens land for the past year will satisfy anyone that the same tendency prevails here. But the departure of...
