The Military, Police and Unionists at Torrens' Creek. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] JUDGING from the wild rumors I hear floating around, there is no crime in the calender, the enormity of which is a "circumstance " to that of being an occasional correspondent of a newspaper from this cheerful village. This does not apply so much to myself as to the local correspondent of the Townsville Bulletin, for whose gore several are thirsting, but so far in vain. He will, however, be dis- covered some day, when, if threats go for anything, there will be a vacancy for the position of Bulletin correspon- dent at Torrens Creek. There is little to report regarding strike matters here beyond the fact that a couple of prominent members are reported to have given in their tickets with a view of entirely sever- ing their connection with unionism, &nbsp; and starting work on one of the neighboring stations. The number in camp as far as I can judge is about 75. 0n Tuesday 19th inst. a non-union-...

Scattered parties of horsemen travel both in advance and at the pear of footmen, who also travel in small parties, forming .a cavalcade of from five to nine miles along the road, from, half a mle to a mile in width.

Whether or not the noisy party can bring sufficient pressure to bear on the Government to induce it to re pudiate the existing public debt is to be settled.
