THE AMERICAN REPLY TO THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 May 1872
THE AMERICAN REPLY TO THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT. THE White Star Company's steamer I " Baltic," which left j\ew York on March 2, reached Liverpool on March 12, without calling at Queenstown. She brought the reply of the American Government to the note of the English Government on the Alabama claims. The New York Times publishes the following despatch : - " Washington, March 1.-The American reply to Earl Granville's note was fully and finally agreed upon in Cabinet meeting to-day, and was forwarded to-night so os to take Saturday's steamer from New York. It it is perfectly safe to say, from what is known of its contents, that its reception by the English Cabinet will not be the cause of war. On the con- trary, so far as the tone of the reply is concerned, it is not only eminently pacific, but it is very suggestive by pointing out a way of escape by which the British Government can avoid its present unpleasant dilemma. Much regret and some surprise are expressed in the reply that England ...

THE GAUGE OF THE FUTURE. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 May 1872
THE GAUGE OF THE FUTURE. .(OOMMUNIOATED.) Iv tho Bulletin, of the 30lh ultimo, I observe with regret that the railways of Northern Queensland are in great danger of being deprived of a part of their use- fulness, and also a portion of their economy, by a foolish and inconsiderate rage for the reduction of gauge. Some other countries, such as Victoria, have through ignorance and a mistake made their gauge too wide, and now are in a fever for reduction, wishing to amend the error, yet are afraid to approach it ; but Queensland ought not - to be affected with the contagion, for no mistake bas been made in the gauge of our railways. Mr. Spooner, Engineer of the Festiniog Kail way, the father of the afilection, has told us that his much vaunted narrow gauge is a mistake, and recommends a wider gauge, although lie dare not extend his ideas to tho full width, being such a departure from his own line. The Indian Commission being auch a high authority, of course must be Tun after by men who ...

THE GREAT RAILWAY PROJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 May 1872
THE GREAT RAILWAY PROJECT. THE scheme broached in South Australia for o grand Trans-Continental railway from Port Augusta to Port Darwin is not to be reproached merely an nocount of its boldness, for sometimes boldness is the truest wisdom. .Nor is it to be censured on account of thc large demand made by the promoters for sn endowment in land, unless it can be shown that the saleable value of that land is immensely in excess of the capital required to construct the work. If it is worth while for South Australia to have such a railway, the cost of it must be paid in soma 1 shape or other ; and it it surely better to pay that cost in a land currency of which it has a superabundance, than in hard cash, of which it liss too little. Without a railway the central territory will for nn indefinite number of years remain practically worthless. A small revenue j may be drawn from adventurous squatters, who, i under the necessity of finding an outlet for their ] surplus stock, may be willing t...
