TERRIBLE AFFRAY AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 May 1872

TERRIBLE AFFRAY AT NEWCASTLE. À FATAL affray took place opposite the Market Wharf Hotel on 9th May, by which a American seaman, named Mark Hadley, belonging to the American ehip Fleetford, lost bis life. It appears that a number of American eeamon went into Walmsly's Hotel, in Hunter-street, and whilst (hero a challenge to tight was thrown out to Hudley by another man named W. Baker. Deceased, however, declined to fight. The men shortly afterwards left Walmsly's, when Baker was seen to drew his knife. He still continued taunting Hudley, who would not consent to fight until the party arrived nearly opposite the railway crossing in ßcott-slrect, when deceased apparently became enraged, and it is said, although the witnesses ore not quite clear on tho point, was about to strike Baker, when the latter sprang upon him without warning, and with his knife struck Hudley on the throat, inflicting a terrible' wound, severing the jugular vein, and in fact all the main arteries on the neck.

The Rockhampton Bulletin, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 May 1872

WIT« WHICH IS 1 XCOßPORAtED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER, SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1872. THE year 1872 marka a new era ia tho history of Now South Wales and Queensland. Tbe gold discoveries in 1850 and 1851 revolutionised matters social, commercial, and political. The extraordinary rise in tho value of two great staples of colonial produce which has just taken place, promises to effect a change scarcely less important. The last year's wool clip realised nearly fifty per cent more than its estimated value at the time of shipment, and the value of copper Ii aa been enhanced almost in a corresponding ratio. Within the past two years the price of this metal has been so low ns £C8 per ton ; by last English mail tho Peak Downs Copper Mining Company received a telegram stating that a sale of their copper had beeu made at £100 per ton ! Thus, sheep runs, which eighteen months ago could not be. carried on at even a moderate profit, aro now become fortunes to their owners, and mining ventures which a year...

We learn from the Courier, however, that some further discussion occurred on the subject of the dead- lock, a portion of which ie worth publication. Tuesday, May 14. On Mr. Bell moving for Committee of Supply, Mr. Lilley reposted the stereotyped objections raised by tbe Opposition a month ago, and thou proceeded to accuse the Government of spend- ing money without tha eanotion of Parliament, and this was a course in respect to whioh tho Opposition desired to express their disapproval. (Hear, hear, from tho Opposition benohes, and laughter from the Government side of tho House.) He thought that they bad now sn additional reason to doubt the sincerity of the Government, for, if they could judge by the papers, the Government or their supporters were agitating for signatures to a petition for the withdrawal of the Redistribution Bill, and the gran...

Wedneeda*. The debate on Mr. Bell's motion for Supply «aa resumed by several supporters of the Government, who were replied to by Mr. Sdmondstone and Mr. Lilley. Mr. Palmer said ho did not think the hon. member for Fortitude Talley had correctly stated the true position of affairs. He (Mr. Palmer) never raid he would not go on with business unless he got Supply and the Appropriation Bill passed. He said he was fully entitled to Supply for 1672, and until the House went fairly into Supply no more business should be dono. That was very different from saying he would have the whole ofSnnply for 1872 before the Redistribution Bill or other business was pro- ceeded with [ end the bon. member for Warwick ha* tery fairly stated th« case. He had «tated over end over again that hs was entitled to Supply-for 1878, and,the divisions wbioh bad taken place that evening clearly proved it.

THE NORTHERN PRESS ON THE DEADLOCK. (From the C. B. Ezpress May 11). [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 21 May 1872

THE NORTHERN PRESS ON THE DEADLOCK. (From lite C. B. Ezpress Mai/ U) IT would appear from the telegram«, like tito celebrated Karl of Warwick, Slr. Frío is able to " tuako or unmake," as ho chooses. This is a gravo responsibility to thrust upon the hon. member for Rockhampton, and yet it must be satisfactory to his constituents to learn that ho "will only take tho Government pledge." What, other iilcdge he hu« boen requested to take docs not appear, although it is stated that Palmer has promised his best. The stern sense of duty possessed by Fyfo has, we are glad to learn, rendered him deaf to the blandishments of " Palmer's best ?" lie threatens the Gotrrn ?nent with the immediate extension of thc Great Northern Ballway, or-destruction. The result has not yet reached us, but it is to be hoped that the denouement will not be too tragic. Leaving Rockhampton, and its unselfish desire for the immediate extension of the railway, out ol the q/icBtion, we ace by the papers that n rumour w...
