RAVENSWOOD. (From the Miner, March 9.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 April 1872

RAVENSWOOD. (From the Miner, March 9. ) The quantity of gold -7968 oz -taken down by the escort is the best test of the capabilities of this field, and when it is remembered that there have been a great many very poor crushings, and no extraordinary rich ones, it will be seen that the distribution of gold among the miners must be pretty general. Some experiments hare been lately tried by Mr Jackson, which conclusively prove that mundic stone will pay splendidly, when the proper machinery is placed on the ground. He first submitted some of the tailings from the mundic stone crushed from the Mary claim, to the action of acid, which in a few minutes revealed   several little nuggets of pure gold. We could call them nothing but nuggets, and judging from the prospect, the tailings would go more than 100 ozs to the ton. Other tailings from which not a colour could be got, were placed in an iron pan fixed above the flame in the boiler, and having been thoroughly roasted, gave ...

THE PARRAMATTA RIVER MURDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 April 1872

THE PARRAMATTA RIVER MURDERS. INQUESTS on the bodies of Bridger and Walker were heldon March 20, respectively at Ryde,   and the Observer Tavern, Sydney. The former inquest was closed, and the latter was adjourned   till half past 9 o'clock this morning. Bridger-a photograph of whom was shown at the inquest at Ryde-was a young man of some 25 years of age, and very stout. His countenance was a pleasing one. He is   spoken of by those who have had transactions with him in his capacity as wardroom steward   of the "Rosario," as urbane and gentlemanlike.     His clothes, camphorwood box, and carpet bag have, as it has before been stated, been traced to the house in Strawberry Hill which had been engaged by prisoners Nichols and Lester. Those of Walker have also been traced to this house. At Nichols' residence in Prince-street, was found a shingling hammer, with what are believed to be stains of blood. Portions...

The problem as to whether {lie Rockhampton or Broadsound roads shall ultimately take the traffic appears likely to solve itself, railway or no railway. It ia a fact, we are informed, that several of tho beBt carriers in the district, who know every inch of both roads, have made overtures to our merchants with a view to the adoption of some mutually advantageous system by which the carriers shall always secure loading without loss of time, and their employers the delivery of their goods with regularity and dispatch. The system is intended to extend to the three main ronds leading from Bockhampton to the several up-country districts, To Banana and Taroom on the south ; to Springsure, Tambo, and Blackall on the west; and to Clermont and Copperfield on the north-west.

THE NATIONAL BANK OF QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 April 1872

THE NATIONAL BANE OF QUEENS- LAND. THE starting of the "Queensland National Bank" is an event of some importance to tbe residents of this colony. It is true that in the first in- stance the promoters do not intend to -ex- tend the operations of the bank beyond Brisbane. Butthisisaprudentdetermvna tion. The metropolis in a matter of this kind claimB first attention. Its mercantile operations are on a larger scale than those of any other town in the colony, and, we presume, the bulk of the banks' capital will be provided by the metro- politan districts. Therefore the bitterest opponent of " the south " cannot fairly object either to the establishment of the head office at Brisbane, or to the estab- lishment of branches in the different towns of the colony "whenever it is deemed expedient." There is much to be done in the organisation of a staff of thoroughly trustworthy officers. A full- blown banking establishment cannot be suddenly raised by tbe magician's wand.
