THE ENGLISH MAIL. (From the Home News, April 19.] [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 11 June 1872
THE ENGLISH MAIL. (From the Home Netft, April 19J HEU MAJESTY left England for G-cr many soon after Hie dispatch of our last issue. The Queen's avowed object was to pay a visit of sympathy to lier neice, the Duchess of Schleswig-Holstein, on a recent bereavement. Rut this reason hns not been nearly sufficient for those who know everything, and they insisted that Queen Victoria went on a mission of a matrimonial kind. If so, tbe secret has been excessively well kept, and we bad no account of Her Majesty's meet- ing with any potentate with whom she could open interesting negotiations. The Queen went and returned through Franco, but made no stay in Paris, and studiously avoided the sight of any one of the ruins. This will bo universally considered an evidence of the good tasto which characterises our monarch, and it may be remembered that soon after the siege the sensitive French com- plained of exactly the reverse kind of conduct on the part of distinguished personages who should hare...

OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS. (From tie Mackay Mercury, June \.) A EEBioüS outrage has boen committed by the blacks, who for some time past had been allowed to camp near the Head Station, Plane i Creek, where they were kindly treated by Messrs. Bell and Atherton, who distributed to I thom the Government blankets, etc., and it was supposed that in future thoy would be peace- able j but kindness proved to be thrown away upon these savages, as on Saturday last tboy attempted to murder Mr. Muggleton, who resides on a selection, some two mileB distant from the Head Station. A house is in course of being erected at this selection, the two skillion rooms at the back being the only part finished. In these rooms Mr. Muggleton with his wife and children resided ; there was also on that night a boy, a son of a neighbouring settler, stopping at the place for the night. About ten o'clock, when the fumüy were about to retire, a lot of blacks esme to the place and demanded "bacca!" using threatening lan...

THEEE was one very satisfactory feature about Mr. FIFE'S meeting yes- terday evening. The most perfect unanimity appeared to prevail on tho vexed question now in the ascendant. The Opposition hod not a solitary defender. All were perfectly agreed that obstruction, as praotised by Messrs. KINO AND COMPANY, was totally un- justifiable. Nothing that Mr. FrrE uttered elicited so much genuine applause as his home thrusts at the patriot who is generally credited with having adopted the popular rale in revenge for the loss of bis house, or, as Mr. FYFE called it, his "lark humpy." People whoso reputations are tender should bo careful not to malign their friends, or " the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth," will be apt to leak out. As we stated cn the 30th ultimo, Mr. FrFE could not have acted otherwise than he has done without jeopardising the interests of his constituents. He was bound to take decided measures to terminate the deadlock, and, although we have been accused o...

TICHBORNIANA. TEE following letter from the claimant hats recently appeared in the London newspapers ¡ "Sir,-You will be good enough to allow me to acknowledge, through the medium of your paper, the numerous letters addressed to me and my solicitor, suggesting that I should appeal to the public for subscriptions for my defence and to thank all those who bave promised to subscribe for their kind feeling towards me in my present painful position. It is with the greatest reluc- tance that I adopt the suggestion, sure, however, aB I am that it is inspired only by a sense of justice ; but as a victim of might against right what other course am I to adopt P True, it may be that my friends who have already assisted will, to some extent, help me further; but it would be unreasonable for me to hope that, after the assistance they have already afforded me, I can fairly look to them for the large sum necessary for my defence. If a few hundreds, orevenathou sand, would suffice, I might not perh...

The Rockhampton Bulletin, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 11 June 1872
C|e^oáf§am|tait $5uUetÍtt, mm wHicn is INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 1872. ' THE.information contained ia the Report of the Chief Inspector of Sheep, pub- lished in Saturday's issue, will probably surprise many readers. This is popularly understood to be an ago of progress, and all our producing interests are sup- posed to be in a progressive state. But the Chief Inspector of Sheep shows that so far as our pastoral districts are concerned we bare been retrograding. There was a decrease of more than half-a-million head in our flocks of sheep, or seven and a half per cent on the whole. At this rate of decrease, fifteen years would suffice to make our flocks extinct. It therefore becomes an important question whether the decrease of last year was due to exceptional causes. The CHIEF INSPECTOB sets down the estimated increase of lambs at 1,153,966; and the consumption, in- cluding the numbers sent overland and boiled down, at 889,064 The losses from worm disease...

(From the Melbourne Leader, May 25.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 13 June 1872
(From Hie Melbourne Leader, May Tho Queenslanders cannot complain that they have not a Constitutional Governor of tho first water in tho Marquis of Normanby. Iiis Excellency has lately had presented to him a memorial by the minority of the House of Assembly, laying the whole blame of stoppage of Supplies, and the consequent deadlock, on the Ministry, because it declined to adopt the policy which the minority laid down for it. Governors have not often an opportunity of speak- ing their mind independently to the people over whom they rule, and the Marquis of Normanby seems to have realised this, and to have made the best of his opportunity. His reply to the memorial is an exhaustive treatise on Constitutional Government, in the course of which he says:-"If there is one principle more firmly established tban another in the British Constitution, it is that the majority and not the minority of the representative of the people in Parliament assembled, shall have the conduct of public affa...
