THE ROAD TO PORT. IK a long article on railway extension, the Peak Bowns Telegram thus discujiog the comparative advritages of the respective routes : The route, however, or, at all events, the port from which the line shall start, is a matter of vast importance to the locality that is expected to find the trafile. It is one, too, on which all are able to give an opinion, so far as their own knowledge goes. If they know the nature of the seaports, they can judge of the comparative \alue of each. If thev know the country, they can express an opinion as to which of any proposed routes will be the best, the cbeapeet*and most desirable. At any rate, they can say with what point on the coast they wish to be connected. At present two seaports are spoken of .-Rockhampton and Broadsound. Not being familiar with both roads or both ports, we cannot express an opinion upon them. One road is condemned io consequence of its being the longest; the other because it is the most mountainous; one is ...

"COME UP AND TEETOTLE." [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 20 June 1872

" OOltB J7P AND TEETOTLE." WE are in receipt of a neatly printed little pamphlet, entitled the Teetotaller, which starts out upon its career of use- fulness " under the auspices " of one John Blob. John begins refreshingly thus-" O brother why will ye, and why will ye not ? Lo! the crystalline liquid drippeth from the rock, and wasteth upon the plain-and ye will not. The fiery poison moveth itself in the glass -and ye will. O miserable and blind ; there is no safety for tbee but in our land of teetotallers! Come up aud teetotle! Come and join thy thirsty ¡ spirit unto ours, even as a drop is joined into its ocean !" If John means this j lost as an invitation to drop in and take a I drink, he ought to tell us where his bar is. Mr. Blob, as a philologer you are without a parallel; the verb "to tee- totle" is the grandest conception of the age. Hereafter it shall be the dearest pleasure of our existence to visit the public schools and hear that delicious part of speech conjugated. Fanc...

j CHEATING THEGALIiOWSINNEVADA.| BA.TA.ED Taylor writes as follows to the New Ttrk Tribune:-In walking out this morning I came across a long beam projecting from the gable of a house directly over a deep ravine. There was a Blight platform under the beam and a short rope dangling from its end. 'What a fearful place this is for a swing,' I said. ' Yes, so it is,' said my friend, ' and a man took a fearful swing (tore not four months ago.* ' How was 1Stt'ffitt~tWMj^úiV¡ wa«; a man shot 'another man in cold blood. He was arrested, tried, convicted, and sentence to be hung. He was known to be a desperate vagabond and an incendiary, and suspicions of many dark deeds were upon him. His chances for escape through executive clemency or legal technicalities were considered by ! many of our beBt citizens who, on the whole, concluded to make a sure thing of it They therefore went in a body to the gaol, escorted the prisoner to this spot, and, after a solemn presenta- tion of the facts in the c...

A SWEEP ENAMOURED OF QUEEN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 20 June 1872

A SWEEP ENAMOURED OF QUEEN VICTORIA. TEE Gaulois relates the following story in its news of the day-' An eccentric person has just died in London upon a miserable pallet in the wretched quarter of St. Gilles (sie.) He had his hour of celebrity thirty years ago, at which time he was a chimney-sweep. He fell ' in love with Queen Victoria, and as he i was constantly introducing himself by the chimneys into the Palace of St. James, it was found necessary to take him into custody, and he was shut np in Tothill-street prison. It was believed that his confinement had cured him of his hopeless passion, and he was released, but he had been at liberty hardly a single day, when he was discovered in the Park, watching the Queen as she took her wa1'es. The police, after con- sulting his father, took him down to Gravesend, and embarked him on board the "Diamant," for Sydney. They were not a moment too soon, for he had hardly left hie home, when the manager of a small theatre came to offer him £4 ...

SPORT AND MATRIMONY. (From the Field.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 20 June 1872

SPORT AND MATRIMONY. (nom the Field) THESE are hundreds of honeBt-minded, healthy, and accomplished English girls who, properly escorted, enjoy a day's hunting with the most complete disre- gard of matrimonial purposes or desigus. They enter thoroughly into the spirit and dash of the moment, and, while they swing along willi secure seat and nerves far more keenly braced and fit for the exercise than half the stirrup cupped horsemen about them, they do not give a single thought to the business which professional cynics assure us is the supreme motive of every un wedded woman's action. They are, in fact, in the true sense of the poet's words, quite " fancy free " in the con- dition of glowing physical temperament produced by swift movement, by the keen air, by the sunshine, by the music of the bounds, by the feeling of using power in sympathy, by the many sights and adventures of the course, and the quick succeBSBion of views. The vulgar error into which many men fall concerning this ...

THE MODERN JEREMY DIDDLER. (From the Globe.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 20 June 1872

THE MODERN JEREMY DIDDLER. (From the Globe.) SOME years ago the late Mr. Charles Dickens wrote a very interesting article, in Household Words, on begging letter writers, in the course of which, if we remember rightly, the great novelist said that, within the space of twelve months, be bad been importuned by the same applicant for a small financia! subsidy-twice on the ground that an addition to his family, in the shape of twins, had suddenly arrived ; three times on the plea that his infant child bad just died, and that funeral expenses were pressing ; twice with the representation that the wife of his bosom was in extremis; four times because of the demise of his father, and times innumerable with the allegation of sundry minor domestic bereavements and afflictions. There is no doubt that the trade of the epistolary mendicant, if skilfully and diplomatically exercised, pays-but only for a time. We are aware that there are gentlemen who have received as good an education as England ...

THE SMEATON PROPHETS. THB Ballarat correspondent of the Mel- bourne Argus gives an extraordinary account of the way in which a wall-to-do farmer at Smeaton named Boyes ,tn induced by the machinations of two individuals of the gang of impostora who under the name of religion prey on i the weak-minded, to sell off all ne had *' for the glory of the Lord." Poor «Mrs. BoyeB, having noticed these impostors coolly loading their cart with flour, oats, bacon, wheat, or anything that was food for rtm «id jifrrf, rrtr8-* kindly1«!**, tulated with her husband on the folly of his giving these men such supplies when they needed them at home. Boyes, whose good temper had not changed with his folly, merely replied, " It will be no loss to us, dear ; it is all for the Lord and his saints," Poor Mrs. Boyes now saw that the villains, as she called them, had fairly woven the toils round her husband, and appealed to the clergyman and to Boyes's most intimate friends to try and eave him ; but it was all...

Though in Queensland I am glad to eay some clergymen still remain who aro equally fitted for their sacred calling, yet, nias, too many there ore who do not seem to have the " gift of tongues " either literally or spiritually.
