WE understand that a new trial has been granted by their Honors in the Supreme Court case of Brandon v. Bouel and others, on the &nbsp; points resolved at the trial at Rockhampton in &nbsp; March last. Some very mendacious untruths have lately &nbsp; obtained currency through a section of the Press &nbsp; and otherwise. The following specimen found "under the verandah" is so palpably false that we think little harm will result from its publica- &nbsp; tion .--" Died, on the 29th instant, at Govern- &nbsp; ment House, His Excellency the Governor from &nbsp; the effects of a foul attack of Northern Argus.

[?]ER COPPER MINE [?] WILTON REEF, [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
^^^^^^RBroNDENT on whoso veracity we can ^^Hvrolianre kindly sends tho following intelli ^Hsnce respecting tile above named mineral à^propcrties t Mr. Hill has for the last four or five years been prospecting for gold and other metals. He discovered the Warminster mine more than two years ago, end in conjunction with it, although not on the same section, lie liss also lately applied for a lease of auriferous land in the same district. Mr. Dodg- son joined Mr. Hill some lime ago, and as most of our readers are aware, the business has been carried on under the firm of Hill and Dodgson. Although the undertaking was not very promising et Bret, and was engaged in against thc strongly expressed opinion of Mr. Daintree, the Government goologist, the proprietors persevered in their endeavours to work the cojiper lode, with what success will be under- stood when we state that both English and Australian capitalists have been carefully looking out for the results, and that within the last mon...

MINING ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
MINING ENTERPRISE. THE year 1872 marks a new era in the history of New South Wales and Queensland. The gold discoveries in 1850 and 1851 revolutionised matters social, commercial, and political. The extraordinary rise in the 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 j value of copper bas been enhanced almost in a corresponding ratio. Within the past two years the price of this metal bas been so low as £68 per ton ; by last English mail the Peak Downs Copper Mining Company received a telegram stating that a sale of their copper had been made at £100 per ton ! Ibus, sheep runs, which eighteen months ago could not be carried on at even a moderate profit, are now become fortunes to their owners, and mining ventures which a year since would have been rash speculations, are now deemed p...

THE GREAT RAILWAY PROJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
THE GREAT RAILWAY PROJECT. Ins scheme broached in South Australia for a grand Trans-Oontinental railway from Fort Augusta to Port Darwin is not to be reproached merely on account of ita boldness, for sometimes boldness is tile truest wisdom. Nor is it to be censured on account of the large demand made by the promoters for an endowment in land, unless it can be shown that the saleable value of that land is immensely in excess of tbe 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 some sliape or other ; and it is surely better to pay that cost in a land currency of which it has a superabundance, than in hard cash, of which it has too little. Without a railway the central territory will for an indefinite number of years remain practically worthless. A small revenue may bo drawn from adventurous squatters, who, under the necessity of finding an outlet for their surplus stock, may be willing to hazard...

The Rockhampton Bulletin WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
MTTil WIlTCiT 18 IKCORFOBATKD TÏ1B GLADSTONE OBSERVE-R. SATURDAY, JUNE 1, 1872. WHAT next ? We have a presentiment that the political struggle nt Brisbane is on the verge of a crisis. Tho minority have appealed from the legislature to the GOVEHKOB, nnd refused to accept his decision. The question is what next? Neither party will yield, but is it to be tolerated that the public business shall ever remain undone? The minority hare tried desperately to coerce tho majority; is it not possible that the majority, supported by tho law nnd the representativo of Her MA.TESTT, will be driven to coerce tho minority? There must be n remody for tho existing deadlock. Parliament may be prorogued nnd reassembled at a more central place ; and in the meantime, the GOYEHSOB, fortified by a resolution of the majority of both Houses, may issue his warrant for such payments out of the Consolidated Revenue BB ure neces- sary to maintain tho public credit. Or the majority may suspend or niter their Standi...
