The Rockhampton Bulletin, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 April 1872
GLADSTONE O ]} .&lt;? V. J? VF ß. THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1878. THE all-absorbing topic jost now is Hailway Extension. " To be or not to be," is the question everybody aBbB everybody else. We are obliged to con- fess that on this subject the Vice-regal Speech is not so satisfactory as it might bave been. After our experiences of the colonial parliament, we must allow that on this railway question there is a vagueness calculated to excito distrust in minds disposed to scepticism. Still we cannot find grounds for tbe ex- aggerated suspicion which appears to tincture the whole of the community since the tenor of the Speech became known. There is snch deep-rooted dis- trust of the Brisbane Government without regard to party-that the words put ioto his EXCELLENCY'S mouth are supposed to carry with them special significance. The continuation of the Southern and Western Railway to Bris- bane ia recommended, and the northern extension is not even mentioned ; ergo, the Government mean to...

THE TIN MINES. THE news from the tin mines (says the Wanaich Examiner of Saturday last) is altogether satis- factory. The surveyors are now measuring oft" tho selections, and those miners who hsre had theirs defined and surveyed are settling down and making preparations for starting work ia a practical manner. Timber for sluice boxes and ' other materials for washing have left the town for the mines daily, as also have drays and apring carts laden with stores and necessary household articles. The claims on Quart Pot Creek continue to show every sign of richness, and the stuff washed in some claims is nearly all stream tin. At Ruby Creek work is going on more briskly, and tbe same may be said of all parra of the mines on the Kew South Wales eide of this metalliferous country. On Cannon Creek, from Butler's claim to the junction, all land is taken up, some daims look very well, and tin can be found in all parts ; other selections on this creek are no doubt rich, but it is feared that ...
