TERRIBLE AFFRAY AT NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
TERRIBLE AFFRAY AT NEWCASTLE. A FATAL affray took place opposite tbe Kartet Wharf Hotel on 9th May, by which a American Beaman, named Mark Hudley, belonging to tbe American ebip Flectford, lost his life. It appears that a number of American seamen went into Walmsly's Hotel, in Hunter-street, and whilst there a challenge to fight was thrown out to Hudloy by another man nnmed W. Baker. Dooeosod, however, declined to fight. The men shortly afterwards left Walmsly's, when Baker wes seen to draw IIÍB knife. He still continued taunting Hudley, who would not consent to fight until the party, arrived nearly opposite the railway crossing in Scott-Btreet, when deceased apparently became enraged, and it is said, although the witnesses ere not quite clear on thc point, was about to Strike Baker, when tbe latter sprang upon him without warning, and with his knife struck Hudley on tho throat, inflicting a terrible wound, severing the jugular vein, and iu fact all the main arteries on the neck.

THE MONTH. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
THE MONTH. THE Jiopo expressed in our tatt Summary that no practical inconvenience would &lt;*e suffered from I ho doadlock, has, unhappily, not oeen rcalisod. Tho stoppage still continues, and as no payments can be made for May in default of Supply being provided by the Legislature, the Civil Servants, and through them the trading community, will bo put to sims inconvenience. According to the latest telegrams thero was no chance or.-our belligerent legislators coming to an arrangement, although two separate attempts at compromise hove boen tried by the Ministerial or stronger party. As explained last month the castus letti arises out of a demand made by the Opposition that a Redistribution Bill salis : factory to their party absll bs virtually passed before the granting of Supply for the present year. It will be recollected that the previous dead- lock was terminated in January hy the" Premier . asking the House for a vote for £130,000, to corer the expenditure for January,...

IN Thursday's issue we demonstrated that the plan of Bedistribution proposed hy the Ministry gave the Bookham pton group of electorates eight (8) members, while the plan desired by the Opposition would give that group only six (6) members. This ' was rather surprising to those of our readers who cherished the illusion that if Messrs. LILLET and CoMPAsr could but get command of tho State vessel, she would sail straight for Paradise. To-day we are enabled to supply some further proof that the Op- position do not stop-at trifles in arguing j their case, either in the Legislature or in memorials addressed to the repre- j senlativo of royalty. Wo have hitherto contended that the position of the obstructives is unsupported by constitu-, tional law, practice, or precedent. We shall now prove by the official records that it is based upon misrepresentation and falsehood. The Opposition claim that they re- present " the people of tho colony ;" "the great majority of the people;" " two-thirds ...

MINING ENTERPRISE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 1 June 1872
MINING- ENTERPRISE. Tra following interesting paragraphs are culled from our last files of the 6. M. Herald : The Drummond Copper Company bas secured the services of an experienced Cornish captain, «ho, with other men engaged here, has pro ceded lo the mine. The ore found on the ptoperty is said to be quite equal to that of the Peat Downs Company, whose ground adjoins. The prospects of the latter proprietary ure quite equal to any in Australia. Splendid ore is now being raised, and a loree qusntity of refined copper has lately left the mine for tho home market. From the high price of copper in England, it is expected that the next balance sheet issued will be the most satisfactory ever presented to a meeting of shareholders on this aide of the line. The excitement respecting the tin discoveries is almost as great as that respecting the gold. Many companies have already been formed, and hundreds have been induced to speculate, confident that tbè mining will not only be profitable, bu...

THE LATE ME. W. O. WENTWORTH. " Anglo-Australian " says i " I regret to have to announce that Mr. W. C. Wentworth, of Vau- cluse, Sydney, died on March 20, at hia residence, Merley, near Wienhorne. As one of the oldest Australians, snd as a leading man among the mercantile community, and ia the political arena, ho for many years occupied a fore- most position in Australia ; and, although Ilia health and advanced years hare for some time prevented bim from tating part in public matters, his memory ie still cherished with the greatest regard by all-without distinction as to party-who have passed their lives in the Australian colonies. He was one of those pioneers who have helped to make Australis what it is, and bis name will always occupy a > foremost place in ber annals." I
