Telegraphic Despatches QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] GYMPIE, January 2. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
Telegraphic Despatches. QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] GYMPIE, January 2. Six men who were working in No. 8 South Lady Mary reef, fired a blast with dynamite before supper last evening. On resuming work dynamite fumes affected them, and all were taken ill, two seriously so. BRISBANE, January 2. Messrs. Briggs and Mackenzie are the suc- cessful tenderers for the construction of the telegraph line from Blackall to Aramac. Mr. W.W. Elliott is the successful tenderer for &nbsp; the telegraph line from Thornborough to Cairns. A deputation of ministers of religion, intro- duced by Mr. Simon Fraser, M.L.A., waited upon the Minister for Works to-day, and asked him to reconsider his decision withdrawing the privilege hitherto accorded to ministers of an annual railway ticket on payment of £5. Mr. Miles said no such privilege was ac- corded to clergymen in New South Wales or Victoria, and he could not admit the justice of the claim. He also said the holders of these annual...

THE SOUTHERN COLONIES. [REUTER'S TELEGRAMS.] NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, January 2. Wells again failed in his attempted balloon ascent yesterday, owing to the unfavourable weather. Two daring prisoners were caught in the act of attempting to escape from Darlinghurst Gaol to-day. Several gaol officials have been suspended in consequence, pending an inquiry. Mr. Fitzpatrick, the new Minister for Lauds, proposes to abolish the interest on money due by land selectors. M. Jules Joubert, Secretary of the N.S.W. Agricultural Society, has been granted one year's leave of absence on half-pay, in order that he may attend the Paris Exposition. Trickett refuses to row in a sculling match for thc Championship, except in Australian waters. As the Champion, he reserves his right to choose his own ground, but he would contribute towards Courteney's expenses in coming to Australia. It appears that Trickett's challenge, published in America, stated his willingness to row either in the United States or A...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. SIR,—I shall be much obliged by your making a fuss about the drain at the river end of Fitzroy-street. Twenty times when passing it I have been intending to call and ask you to write about it, and neglected to do so, but to-day it is most offensive. Myself and all of my household constantly having to pass it, I assure you makes me fear the bad effects as much as if we lived there. I intended to show you a huge nob of camphor which I thought necessary to provide myself with before I even dared to pass the place. I am, Sir, &c, L. K. Rockhampton, July 2, 1878. &nbsp;
Facts and Sornps. (From the Papers). [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
Facts and Scraps. (From the Papers). THE other evening, a man named Smith, who has been a sailor in the British navy, and is still following nautical pursuits, accidentally shot his wife with a pistol at Yarravale, Vic- toria. He was showing the weapon to a friend when it went off. The charge entered the breast of the unfortunate woman, and she ex- pired almost immediately. A verdict af acci- dental death was returned. &nbsp; The streets of Collingwood, Melbourne, were absolutely blocked by larrikins on the night of the 27th. The police were violently assaulted while arresting the ringleaders. A number have been sentenced to three months in gaol. Steps are being taken in Victoria to obtain the release of Supple, who shot at George Paton Smith with the intention of killing him. The Governor is to be petitioned on the sub-ject. An important discovery of gold has been made near Mount Roland, Victoria. At Egerton, Victoria, Richard Orton, aged twenty-two, has murdered his paramo...

The Month. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
The Month. THE most noteworthy event of the month is the almost entire break-up of the drought all over the colony. Although some rain is still needed in many districts there is reason to be- lieve that in no part of the colony is there present scarcity of grass or water, while in many places there is abundance of both. The relief has been given by successive thunder- storms, which have shed their favours in a most capricious way, but yet have given occa- sional drinks to the thirsty soil everywhere. Should the usual wet season come in next month there will be no scarcity of food for stock next year, when it may be hoped that settlers will retrieve the worst of their losses. The casualties among cattle have been very severe, but not universal as was indicated by casual report. A few sensa- tional journalists took advantage of the drought to write exaggerated accounts of the mischief done, which conveyed the impression that the era of universal ruin had set in. But this is now found ...

the Morning Bulletin, ROCKHAMPTON. THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
&nbsp; &nbsp; The Morning Bulletin ROCKHAMPTON &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1878. &nbsp; Undeterred by the clamour of fierce &nbsp; political strife which now engrosses public attention in Victoria, Governor Bowen has attempted a diversion in favour of competitive examinations for &nbsp; candidates for the civil service. And his remarks have attracted notice even in Vic- &nbsp; toria, for the bureaucratic burden is there &nbsp; assuming gigantic proportions. That &nbsp; colony is at present governed by a &nbsp; Radical Ministry, professing to be speci- &nbsp; ally charged with the conservation of the &nbsp; &nbsp; interests of the masses ; but its &nbsp; greatest achievements hitherto have been &nbsp; the creation of new appointments, &nbsp; the liberal use of political patronage, &nbsp; and...
Correspondence. THE NIGHT-CART NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 3 January 1878
Correspondence. &nbsp; THE NIGHT-CART NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. SIR, —I wish to draw the attention of the authorities to a most serious nuisance ; the perambulation in our streets of those ominous- looking vehicles known as " Night-carts," at the hour of ten in the evening. If the law permits the nightman to commence driving his cart through the streets at this hour, I for one don't expect him—anymore than others in- different in the pursuit of gain—to be actuated by a consideration for the feelings of others. But, Sir, every consideration of common sense and decency demands that this intolerable thing cannot be permitted. Is the search for a breeze of fresh cool air at ten or eleven in the evening—the time most favourable for a walk—to be met with a certainty of en- countering this moving pestilence ? But I am informed that there is a municipal law in force (?) forbidding this noxious business before eleven o'clock. If such is the case, whose duty is it to se...

&nbsp; RAPID PROGRESS—PREMIER &nbsp; POSITION. Great popularity—Intrinsic merit. Reduced Price of the HOME COMPANION. It is only a few months since the first shipment arrived; &nbsp; but the Machine is so really good, that there are already more Home Companions sold in Queensland &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; monthly than are sold of any other Hand Sewing &nbsp; &nbsp; Machine. This rapid success exhausted our stocks again and again ; but we now have a good supply and &nbsp; plenty more to arrive. The great consumption has warranted us in making a large contract with the Manufacturer at a lower rate than formerly, which enables us to reduce the retail price to Four Pounds Ten Shillings. We will not enumerate the good points of the Machine ; we can do better. We will give a local reference at the nearest township to any in- tending purchaser, as the Machines are already in every part of the Colony. Liberal discount to Sto...
