SOME very fine fat wethers reached town list week from Messrs. Lamb and Black's Yamala station, Peak Downs. We saw three carcases taken indiscriminately in Mr. Jager's shop on Wednesday, which weighed upwards of 180lbs., or an average over 60lbs each. Good mutton   has been rather scarce in town lately, and therefore the arrival from Yamala was timely. PURSUANT to advertisement, a mooting was held in the class-room, Dcnham-street, on Friday evening, for tho formation of a dirision of thc Daughters of Temporáneo. It wus resolved that the division bo established under tho National Division of the Sons of Temperance, and twelve members were duly initiated. Four other applicants wero unavoidably absent, ont! it ie believed that tho Daughters' Division will soon become a nutnerions one. We observe that a meeting is convened for to-morrow evening to establish a " Cadets' Dirision " of tho Sons of Temperanoe. TUE usual commemoration of the festival of St. John was obscrrod by ...

The Rockhampton Bulletin, WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE GLADSTONE OBSERVER. THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 27 June 1872

WITH Willett IB INCORPORATED TUB GLADSTONE OBSERVER. THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 1872. THE annoyance given to the travelling and trading public by the existing Custom laws, is notorious. In tho smaller ports there is perhaps more espionage and trouble than in the larger ones. Despite the uniform civility of the officials, the strict scrutiny deemed necessary involves a palpable .interference with the liberty of the subject. A gentleman arriving in a Sydney steamer, sind attempting to bring ashore bag, ia stopped on the wharf, and a search of hiB effects insisted upon. Every lady's trunk must be opened, at least, and the prying eyes of Customs officer must scrutinise wearing apparel and other articles which are held j sacred from the gaze of even blood j relations of the sterner sex. Of course, we are told these examinations are j needful to prevent evasions of the law. I But if so, is so barbarous a law necessary to the well-being of the state? The compulsory submission of invoices ie 1 also...

TELEGRAPHIC MESSAGES. AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATED FBBSS TELEQBAMS. BRISBANE. Wednesday Evening. I THE Redistribution Bill was reconsidered yester- day in Committee. It waa further considered to-day, and again postponed till to-morrow, to giro time for the preparation of new clauses by Mr. Lilley, for a self-adjusting plan of represen- tation. The principal alteration mado yesterday was the abandonment of Mr. Palmer's fifth clause, which referred to the election of the new members. It is now decided that the Bill shall not oome into force until tho end of the present Parliament. A Bill to consolidate and amend the Customs Acts is now in Committee, and is not likely to be finished to-night. This afternoon, Ur.

TEX Acting Chief Justice of Hong Eong has a very effectual way of upholding his dignity, which other officiels less fortunately placed molt regret that they also oannot adopt. During a late trial his lordship (for he receives that title) fancied that one of the special jurors a merchant of some standing named Welsh, waa not paying sufficient attention to the case, and after warning bim three times, indicted a flue of fifty dollars for the offence. Weleh retaliated by writing a letter to a local paper, in which he stated that although languid in hie appearance through sickness he had paid full attention to the proceedings, and much more than the judge bad dons, as fae attempted to provo by criticising toe the judgments during the session, and show- ing tliat throngh his lordship's want of attention and knowledge in more than one instance there bad been a mis-carriage of justice. This waa too much for the Chief Justice to stand, and ho committed the ill-starred Welsh to gaol for fourt...
