PORT CURTIS DISTRICT. May 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875
POET CCKTK DKTEICT. May I. Since my last the weather has been fine, aod the country begins to get much drier. The roads are now in a state of comparative . «ase for ttareHmg, so tiiat there is nothing to prevent the easy access of stock and other i exhibits to Bockhampton for the coming shovs on the 25th and '26th and 27th in stant There is no apparent inducement at present : to stock-ovuers to part with their cattle at anv redaction of price. Cattle are in first-rate , ?order, and from tie abundance of winter feed ti^ere is no cSiance of ?fop'* fa.'Pmg oflF in con dition, which viO prevent anything like a fitnt is the stock market. Add to this the tigh price Hia^ sborc rettH*; are bringing and the confznned settlement of the country, and a speedy fall in price cannot be antidpatcd, a? at present prices these pay better than fat, vhfie etock, lor Ac same reason, will become scarcer.

The Mood/ aodSanhy Bemcet fTKaes, Ifanlie.) The two Americans who for some time . SfeAave been conducting a jeausiabk rfWjl|Hnovement in the North lave at length addressed themselves to the Metropolis, and the vast and various ' population of this City is invited to hear - and judge for itsdt Judgment, perhaps, I is sot -exactly tbe &culij- ot(Ji nhich i these gentlemen are most concerned : ' they invite belief and sympathy, and they appeal to the heart rather than to the head. StiB, criticism is inevitable, and they have already encountered a good deal of it. Revivals are not a novelty, ; and have not always in the end proved ; satisfactory, and a great part of the public are not a little anxious to know what is the land of influence which has been collecting congregations of many thou sands, and, as is said, influencing for good a great proportion of them, in the Northern towns. On the latter point, indeed, the balance of favourable testi mony is very considerable ; and if...
Mr. Froude on the Affairs of South Africa. (Daily Post—Liverpool, March 21.) [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 29 May 1875
llr. Froude on the Affairs of South Africa. (DxihPott—UmrpoA, March 21.) Mr. Froude has been reciting a chapter of history with reference to the state of affairs in our South African colonies. When Mr. Froude abandoned the inti mate society of Mr. Thomas Cariyle with which he was privileged, and set out for the Cape, it was understood that his mission was of a semi-official character — that he was expected to observe and report for the guidance in various parti culars of the authorities of the Colonial Office. His return at the present juncture may be regarded as specially opportune. The unfortunate episode connected with the unrighteous banish ment of the chief LangaUbalele has caused such a ferment both at the Cape and in Natal that we have fox some time been almost prepared to hear that seces sion fiom the motber: coraury has been decided upon by the cctofasts. Bishop Coknso, who vastfeemeam of oblainmg justice far the exiled chief, was not tarred and feallMea xn bis ictuiit to U...
