AUSTRALIAN STATISTICS. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 4 May 1872

AUSTRALIAN STATISTICS. TEE Melbourne Argus publishes a return, compiled from official documents, of comparative statistics of the Australian colonies for the year 1870, being tbe last of which the statistics have been as yet published. Commenting on this return, which we reproduce to-day, the 8. JU. Herald remarks : " lu the honourable distinction of public in- debtedness, Victoria takes slightly tho lead of New South Wales, New Zealand making a good third ; but when the population is taken into account, the pressure of debt is found to be heaviest in Queensland and New Zealand, New South Wales coming third, and South Australia being the most lightly burdened. The gross indebtedness of the colonies is under forty mil- lions sterling, making an average, in round numbers, of nearly twenty pounds per head."

THE LAST OF THE KEW GUINEA ' ' EXPEDITION. Tait Sydney papen publish a long report made by Lieut. Gowlland to Sir Jamos Martin respect - ?int» tba late trip of tbe " Governor Blackall." We subjoin tho most interesting portions of the document : In the tint place, then, 1 would desire to allude tb tho fact-as I hare already doue on a farmer occasion-that in this, as in the instance alluded to, the canse of disaster is clearly traceable to the culpable ignorance of navigation evinced by -llie muter of thc vessel. He took hie ship to ?sea,, as .it appears by thc testimony of thc survivors, almost dcBtituto of charts or proper appliances for navigating. Blown away by a pair of wind when almost within sight of New Guinea, his vessel is allowed 1o drift-I cannot say piloted-among the most dangerous reefs of the Coral Seo. Ber position before striking the { Bramble Beef appears to have been altogether j unknown to her captain, or indeed to any of his ' offices, although, in fact, both Palm...

SPEWQSU&E. [FEOÎI OÜB OWN COHBESPONDENT.] AG you must ho voil aware, that great boon tho electric telegraph wiro, has reached us at hst. Mr. Motvieff, the Inspector of Telegraphs, opened tbe line for public business at half past ten o'clook on Wednesday morning. Congratu- latory addresses were st once sent by our leading townsmen to the Mayor of Clermont, and to our member, John Scott, Esq, M.L.A., of Brisbane. Replies reciprocating the congratula- tions of our townsmen were almost immediately received. The Queensland Pastoral Society, fearing that their annual show would not attract so large a number of exhibits as on former occasions, have decided on not having an exhibition this year. Considering tho benefit the Society bas beca to the district, and the large balance to its credit, your correspondent questions the wisdom of the step taken by the Committee, even though the show would not be es large as some former ones.

THE DAWSON BSIDQE. WE have much pleasure ia publishing the fol- lowing trustworthy information respecting the Dawson Bridge and Boad : The Clermont Road deviation, which crosses ? the Dawson at the site of the bridge now con- structing, is now open for traffic, and will con- tinue so until the flood season, there being en excellent ford at the bridge site. It leaves the i old lino twelve miles from Gogango, near the Herbert's Creek Inn, and rejoins it seven milos beyond Gainsford, making a saving of about three milos, and is a bettor line for stock and perfectly sound for drays. A rood party is employed between the river and Springton, and tenders hare been called for removing the stumps, as was dono between Gogango and I Herbert's Creek, and widening the scrub dearing in what are the worst places in wet weather. On thc old line, via Gainsford, a contract has been given for repairing the culvert at the Burnt Brjdgo and opening the clearing to it, whilst beyond Gainsford good crossin...
