PASTURES NEW IN QUEENSLAND. THE WEST—NORTH—WEST. [BY A LITE RESIDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
PASTURES NEW IN QUEENSLAND. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE WEST-NORTH-WEST. &nbsp; [BY A LATE RESIDENT.] THE fine Western district, comprising the Barcoo, Alice, Thompson and their tributaries, has so often been written of in your paper that most of your readers know pretty well all about its plains and great grazing capabilities ; &nbsp; but there is a district equally as good, of &nbsp; larger extent and more accessible to port, which somehow has been lying almost idle, and until lately almost totally ignored by civilised Queensland. I refer to the Great West-north-west, or (say) the country westward from the Darr and Landsborough, and extend- ing along the Flinders and Saxby down to the Gulf of Carpentaria, and including the water- sheds of the Leichhardt, Gregory, and Nicholson rivers ; the Barclay table-lands, the rivers Cloncurry, Williams, Dugald, Gilliah, Wokingham, Upper Diamantina, and Western. ITS ADVANTAGES AND WANTS. There is here an immense a...
The Morning Bulletin, ROCKHAMPTON. TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
The Morning Bulletin,¶ ROCKHAMPTON. TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 1878. JUDGING by our metropolitan contem- poraries, the doings of politicians in New South Wales and Victoria are of much more interest to the people of Queens- land than are the proceedings of our own public men. The admirable policy of abstention from comment on local matters which is now fashionable at Brisbane saves the conductors of the Press much anxiety and responsibility, Every Queensland journalist has his unlicensed fling at Mr. Berry, and our Conservatives and Liberals try to surpass each other in denunciation of that erring statesman's practices. The New South Wales knights also have been given some hard knocks of late ; while the wickedness of the aggressive Czar has formed the staple of the Queenslander's mental food. All these are safe subjects, and may be dashed off by slashing leader writers by the column without the slightest fear of wounding anybody's susceptibilities or eliciting a single disagreeable remons...

Their liabilities are reported heavy. The imports into this port last year were of the declared value of over twelve millions sterling, the increase, as compared with 1876, being £350,000.

COMMERCIAL AND SHIPPING. LONDON, January 5. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
COMMERCIAL AND SHIPPING. LONDON, January 5. &nbsp; Money is plentiful, with a slack discount demand. The market rate for three months' bills is 3 per cent.

Wallaroo copper is worth £75 to £76 per ton. Burra £74 5s. to £74 10s. Tin has declined. Hemp is firm. Preserved meats are dull o...
THE RUSSO-TURKISH WAR. LONDON, January 5. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
THE RUSSO-TURKISH WAR. LONDON, January 5. &nbsp; &nbsp; Erzeroum is completely infested. The Russians are not bombarding the place, but intend to reduce it by famine, owing to the majority of the population being Christians. Numerous extra-parliamentary speeches are being delivered, and there is great agitation against active intervention in the war. At the same time, several Ministerial organs attempt to discredit the speech of Earl Car- narvon, as reported to have been delivered. The Cabinet are known to be divided ; the Premier (Earl Beaconsfield), Mr. Gathorne Hardy, and Lord Cairns forming the war section ; while Earl Salisbury, Earl Carnarvon, Mr. Cross, and the Earl of Derby oppose hostile measures. The remaining members of the Cabinet are doubtful in their opinions. Several Council meetings have been held during the week. Up to yesterday, Mr. Layard, the British ambassador at Stamboul, had received no answer from his Government conveying the Russian reply, th...

THE MELBOURNE-SUEZ MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
THE MELBOURNE-SUEZ MAIL. WE quote from the S. M. Herald's telegraphic summary :— LONDON, November 23. &nbsp; The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh arrived at Malta for the winter, on the 27th ultimo. Admiral Randolph has succeeded Vice- Admiral Sir Beauchamp Seymour in command of the Channel squadron. The new opera house on the Thames Em- bankment is not to be completed for theatrical purposes, the project lapsing for want of sup- port. It has been suggested that the area on which the massive foundations have been placed, might be available for the proposed India and Colonial Museum. Cleopatra's Needle will remain at Ferrol during the winter pending the settlement of salvage by the Admiralty Court. The annual address of the Royal Geo- graphical Society was delivered by Sir Ruther- ford Alcock, the president, on the 12th.

PREVENTION OF TYPHOID FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 8 January 1878
PREVENTION OF TYPHOID FEVER. THE Australian Health Society, Melbourne, has published a tractate giving rules for the prevention and spread of typhoid fever. The rules were drawn up by Drs, Murchison and Budd, who have gone very minutely into the investigation of the subject. As typhoid fever is prevalent here as well as elsewhere, we append the rules, which have been reprinted by the leading journal :— RULES FOR PREVENTING THE ORIGIN AND CHECKING THE SPREAD OF TYPHOID FEVER. The fever known to medical men chiefly by &nbsp; the name of Typhoid is commonly known by various other names, such as Gastric, Enteric, Nervous, Low, Colonial, &c. Typhoid Fever, though never absent from the Australian colonies, is most prevalent in the autumn months; and attacks chiefly persons under thirty years of age. According to the Victorian Year Book for 1874, there have been in Victoria, on an average for twenty- one and a half years ending on that date, 405 deaths annually from typhoid...
