THE FESTIVE SEASON IN AUSTRALIA. FALL OF A FLOOR DURING A BALL IN HONOUR OF THE MARQUIS OF NORMANBY. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 13 April 1872

TSE FESTIVE SEASON IN AÜSIEA1IA. »At* OF A moon DUMBO ± BAEL DT BOWDB Ol TBS MABQÜI8 Ol VOBIUHBT. ÜKijiB the above heading, Day's Doings at December 30, 1871, an illustrated sensational newspaper published in London, contains a more lively than truthful sketch of the mishap at tlie Governor'« Ball in Bockliampton lest year. The engraving, which adorns the front page, represents a most heartrending state of affairs-young ladies falling into young gentle- men's arms, and eic» vertí. Tbs facts, how- ever, were not sufficiently sensational for the ~ " imaginative writers and artists in Dag's Doings and the height of the building from the ground is therefore altered from one foot to six feet. ' This little change permitted of a play of fancy which would have made tbe sketch unrecog- nisable but for the reproduction of nemes and dates. The letter-press description is'os follows!

'rrrn wnicii rs iNcoaroRATKo TJIK GLADSTONE OBSERVER. SATURDAY, APRIL IS, 1872. Outt new friend of the Courier is a charming gentleman. Ho would forth- with bury tho hatchet, and permit nothing but " the most friendly rivalry " between the two most important ports " north of Sydney." He is astounded " that a town and district certainly " ranking not less than second to any in " Queensland, should still be so shame " fully under-weighted in the propor " tion of its representatives and the " influence in the legislature to which " it is fairly entitled." And he thinks it passing strange that the Separation petitioner» " should be content to rest " satisfied with their literary triumphs." He forthwith assumes that we are not in earnest in the Separation cause, and suggests that cither our purpose should be direct and uncompromising, or that we should abandon it and co-operate with the south to secure equal privileges, full representation, and railway oiton ! sion. The latter, of course...

MB. OSCAE DE SATOS ¡B like good wine-he improves with age. Timo was when Wolfang run was at the beginning and end of his political creed, but we notice with much pleasure that his views have become more cosmopolitan of late. Perhaps, the late deadlock in Parliament has hod a beneficial effect upon him, or the kdrance in wool and preserved meats has stimulated him to show to the world the amiable aide of his character. At any rate, we now find him cordially giving way to an old oppo nent, and admitting that, " although more liberal than he' (Mr. de Salgc) waB, ho would witness that gentleman's return with pleasure11 yea, more than that,-"In the hope that he would be returned, ho could bow resign Iris aeat with gratification."

A ONE-RAIL RAILWAY.. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 13 April 1872

A ONE-RAlL RAILWAY. NARROW-GAUGE railways have received a great deal of attention since Mr. Spooner showed how successful they were from a commercial as well as from a practical point of view. A new railway idea also claims a little attention from those   endeavouring to solve the problem of cheap and easy transit in mountainous and sparsely-popu- lated countries. This is of the narrowest possible gauge, in fact, no gauge at all, being merely a wall with a rail on the top. The author of this system of railway is Mr. J, L Haddan, director of public works at Aleppo, 8yria, to which country his plan is peculiarly adapted. It seems that in the mountainous countries in that part of the world, what traffic there is is carried on by means of mules, who convey the goods and merchandise in bales on fheir backs. There is, however, a business traffic which needs better accommodation, and which, it is believed, would afford a remunera- tive return on the very moderate outlay necess...
