GLAÓSTONE. " [KlîOM A rOKUESroNDENT.] ON Tuesday lost a small THU, comprising au area of niue si ju aie miles, was disposed of at thc Land O Hice.

THE COMET TOWNSHIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 1 March 1878
THE. COMET TO WNSHIP. [FROM oun OWN cormusroNiiuNT.] Tire past week lias boen remarkably sultry, ami very unhealthy. Tlie highest registered by thc mercury in thc shade was 103°, but a density pervaded thc atmosphere, making tho slightest motion unpleasant. Another notice- able feature was, that after a shower the air only remained cool for a few_ minutes, and suddenly became hotter than before thc rain- fall. A number of infantile deaths have oc- curred. There have been three cases of sun- stroke-fortunately, only one of them proving fatal. Wc have had rainy weather for tlie last fortnight, seldom more than twenty-four hours elapsing without a copious downpour, and, in consequence, the country around looks beautiful, with abundance of feed in every direction. On the Mackenzie it would be impos- sible to find anything more agreeable to the eye. Thc black soil flats look like vast fields of wheat, and on the ridges the sandalwood, now in full blossom, gives forth a delightful fragran...

The Morning Bulletin, ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 1 March 1878
ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1878. A TELEGRAM in reference to the Blackall run prosecutions received from the Secretary to the Crown Law Officers, has been kindly placed at our disposal, and reads thus : "Regina v. Harding.- The Attorney-General has found no true bill in these cases." The prosecutions for perjury therefore fall to the ground, and it may he presumed that no further steps will be taken in thc cross cases in which the summonses are made returnable, we believe, for the 7th March. Mr. Milford, solicitor, however, left town for Blackall on Tuesday last, to appear on behalf of the defendant, Mr. Kelman. The Attorney General is probably right in deciding that the question involved is one of damages, and not of misdemeanour. THREE years ago, when the great flood had undermined the river bank so seriously that the whole frontage from thc Criterion Hotel upwards was in danger of being carried away, the Corporation applied to the then Govern- ment. They pointed out that nearly...
