The Morning Bulletin, ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
THE MORNING BULLETIN, ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 1878. &nbsp; IN our Commercial column to-day &nbsp; appears a portion of the trade returns annually prepared at the Rockhampton Custom-house. The import tables are not ready, nor have the details of exports been yet collated except for the last quarter of the year. The infor- mation given, however is interesting, as assisting to prove that despite marsupials and drought the district has still been &nbsp; making progress during the year. It will be seen that the weight of &nbsp; wool exported last quarter was in value &nbsp; equal to more than one-half the total &nbsp; export of 1876. The December quarter of course takes a large proportion of the clip in ordinary seasons, but &nbsp; during the last quarter the constant cry was that traffic was stopped by the entire absence of grass along the main roads. It would seem, however that despite all obstacles the carriers managed t...
ROCKHAMPTON POLICE COURT. Thursday, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
ROCKHAMPTON POLICE COURT. &nbsp; Thursday, January 10. BEFORE the Police Magistrate. STEALING FROM A DWELLING.—Annie G. Rasmussen and Erasmus Rasmussen, were charged with stealing the sum of £15. Detec- John Long deposed that in company with Mr. William Boldeman he went to the residence of the prisoners in Bolsover street, near the Rail- way Station, about noon yesterday ; he went there by virtue of the search warrant pro- duced ; he saw the female prisoner, and &nbsp; asked her if she had been at Mr. Boldeman's &nbsp; &nbsp; yesterday, she replied in the affirmative ; witness said, " Give me the money you took from Mr. Boldeman's house ; " she denied taking any ; witness then informed her that he had a &nbsp; search warrant to search the house, and that &nbsp; she had better give him the money ; witness &nbsp; showed her the search warrant : prisoner then went to her bed and took from the mattress a &nbsp; purse contai...
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
MUNICIPAL COUNCIL. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE usual meeting of the Municipal Council was held yesterday afternoon at four o'clock. Present—His Worship the Mayor, and Alder- men W. F. Walton, C. S. D. Melbourne, J. Ferguson, J. Macfarlane, M.L.A., R. Sharples, and W. K. Higson. The minutes of the previous meeting having been read and confirmed, the following com- munications were read. &nbsp; CORRESPONDENCE. &nbsp; (1.) From Mr. J. T. S. Bird, dated Decem- ber 26, requesting the consideration of the im- provement of the footpath on the west side of Alma-street, between Denham and Fitzroy streets, which would cause the water to flow down the street channel instead of as at pre- sent accumulating on private property.—Re- ferred to the Works' Committee. (2.) From Mr. C. E. Wodehouse, dated &nbsp; December 31, calling attention to the state of the footpath fronting his premises in West- street. The soil had been washed away, and holes formed by the action o...
THE COMET TOWNSHIP. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
THE COMET TOWNSHIP. &nbsp; [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] The festivities of Christmas and New Year have passed over and given place to the ordinary routine of everyday life. The dif- ferent works on the line that had been brought to a standstill during the holidays are again being proceeded with, favoured by the weather, &nbsp; &nbsp; which is everything that could be desired, fine and agreeably cool. We have had a few thunderstorms, sufficient to purify the atmos- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; phere and give a plentiful supply of grass, &nbsp; &nbsp; without putting the rivers up or rendering the roads unfit for traffic. News has reached here that Yamala head station has been burned to the ground, the &nbsp; dwelling house and store both becoming a prey &nbsp; to the fiery element. Very little, if anything, has been saved, as the work of destruction &nbsp; only lasted a few minutes. The wh...
CABLEGRAMS. [REUTR'S MESSAGES.] THE WAR. LONDON, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
CABLEGRAMS. [REUTER'S MESSAGES.] THE WAR. LONDON, January 9. THE statement made in the despatches pub- lished yesterday from the special correspon- &nbsp; dent of a London paper, viz., that the Turks had abandoned the Shipka Pass, and that &nbsp; General Radetsky had advanced as far as &nbsp; Kazanlik, is declared to be unfounded. &nbsp; Preliminary negotiations for the arrange- &nbsp; ment of an armistice are reported to have been &nbsp; opened, but their success is considered im- &nbsp; probable.
[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS MESSAGES.] LONDON, January 9. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT'S MESSAGES.] &nbsp; LONDON, January 9. &nbsp; The Turkish Council have agreed to the conditions of an armistice ratified by the Sultan to-day ; and the new Ministry have ordered the Turkish Commanders to conclude the armistice with the Russian generals. Owing to the refusal of the Russians to entertain proposals for an armistice through the British Government, Earl Derby has counselled the opening of direct negociations between the belligerents. The Turkish Foreign Minister, in addressing the Chamber yesterday, declared that Turkey &nbsp; was isolated, and that there was no hope of a &nbsp; European alliance. The Chamber afterwards &nbsp; declared the exposition of the Ministerial policy satisfactory. The Turks have defeated the Servians at &nbsp; Novebazr, and have retaken Kurshawa. &nbsp; The Russians demand that 4000 Servians shall assist in the operations against Adrianople. An attempt made by the Rus...
Telegraphic Dispatches. QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] BRISBANE, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
Telegraphic Despatches. &nbsp; QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] &nbsp; BRISBANE, January 10. &nbsp; A telegram from Stanthorpe appears in this &nbsp; afternoon's Telegraph, stating that it is reported &nbsp; that Mr. Thorn is about to be married and visit Europe, and that Mr. Tyrel will join the Ministry, taking the Works portfolio, and &nbsp; Mr. Miles assuming charge of the Lands. Commenting on the matter, the Telegraph &nbsp; says it has been informed that there is no truth in the report. A fire occurred at Dinte's Hotel last &nbsp; evening ; no clue has been discovered as to its &nbsp; origin. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. John Campbell died at Redbank to-day, aged about seventy years. &nbsp;
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, January 10. &nbsp; The Legislative Council yesterday adopted address to the Governor, explaining the causes which led to the rejection of the Appropriation &nbsp; Bill. The House then adjoined till Tuesday. &nbsp; Intense anxiety and excitement exists in &nbsp; regard to the next action of the Government. &nbsp; A number of unclassified officers of old stand- &nbsp; ing in the service were dismissed to-day &nbsp; without notice, and without claim to com- pensation. Another Gazette extraordinary will shortly &nbsp; be issued dismissing many officers, including &nbsp; the Chief Secretaries and Treasurers in the Edu- cation and Law departments. It is currently reported that Captain Standish, Commissioner of Police, is dis- charged. The reductions in the Public ; Works depart- ment have had the effect of stopping all public works and throwing an immense number of &nbsp; men out of employ...
NORTHERN MAIL NEWS. THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
NORTHERN MAIL NEWS. THE BLACKS. SINCE the wholesale spearing of horses on the &nbsp; Port Douglas road, (says the Hodgkinson Mining News) reports have reached this office &nbsp; that three horses belonging to Rose and &nbsp; Clarke, of the Hodgkinson had been speared &nbsp; by the blacks on the far side of the Granite. &nbsp; Two of them are dead and the third so much crippled as to be useless for a long time, &nbsp; Near the cattle camps on the Walsh they have &nbsp; been playing up with both horses and cattle, &nbsp; causing the latter to break up in confusion. &nbsp; Eight of Byers and Little Brothers' bullocks, &nbsp; which were driven away thus, have not yet &nbsp; been recovered. Horses have been speared, &nbsp; but none killed lately. On the far side of Mount Mulligan a camp of Alf Trevethan's, &nbsp; during his temporary absence, was burnt down, and a lot of pack trappings...
THE RAILWAY IN BURMAH. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
THE RAILWAY IN BURMAH. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; UNLIKE the Chinese, Burmans appreciate their railway. A correspndent of the Melbourne Argus thus writes from Rangoon :—The rail- &nbsp; way statien is the latest novelty in the country, &nbsp; and consequently an object of the greatest curiosity to the natives. This railway was &nbsp; only opened a few months ago, and is the first line laid down in Burmah. It runs a &nbsp; distance of 160 miles parallel to the banks of &nbsp; the Irrawaddy. It only reaches now as far as &nbsp; Prome, but will be continued before long to &nbsp; Thayetmyo the northern limit of British territory on the west side. The rates are very low, and it costs the very modest sum of eight shillings to travel 160 miles. The new institu- tion is such a popular one that Burmah will, no doubt, soon be covered with a network of &nbsp; railways, which will give a new impetus to the trade o...
RUSSIA AND THE DANUBE. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
RUSSIA AND THE DANUBE. &nbsp; A CORRESPONDENT of the Standard with the Turkish fleet in the Black Sea, after calling &nbsp; attention to Russia's sentimental aspirations in &nbsp; connection with her lost territory in Bessarabia, and to her commercial views in connection &nbsp; with the navigation of the Danube, undertakes to show that the question of the free navigation &nbsp; of the Danube is one that concerns England more than any other country, even if it does not concern England alone. The Russians are fighting avowedly with the object of taking Bulgaria from beneath the Turkish administration, and possibly with the view of separating it altogether from the Ottoman Empire. We hear, too, from time to time of the desire of the Russian Government to obtain the freedom of the Bosphorus and the Dardonelles. In regard to the Danube, we have hitherto considered ourselves secure,'. believing that there, if nowhere else, Austria, or even Austria a...
CORRESPONDENCE. POLITICIANS AND PERSONAL HONOUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. POLITICIANS AND PERSONAL HONOUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. &nbsp; &nbsp; SIR,—The best judge of Queensland character in Queensland (and a worthy representative of British worth) once had the patriotism to pub- licly inform the first Queensland Government &nbsp; that they were " sadly deficient in a nice sense of personal honour. " Deadly and damnatory sentence (not yet &nbsp; sufficiently taken to heart here on that bale- &nbsp; ful habit of turning individual (or national) &nbsp; life and worthiness into a matter of trick, &nbsp; which has already produced irremediable mis- &nbsp; chief in this promising portion of Her &nbsp; Majesty's dominions. No doubt the example &nbsp; initiated here has helped to confirm the " blarneyers " of other colonies in their reck- less selfishness, till results ensue as mournful &nbsp; as those announced in your Melbourne tele- gram of to-day. ...
THOMSON RIVER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE [?]. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 11 January 1878
THOMSON RIVER. &nbsp; TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. &nbsp; Sir,—In a district like this, situated so far inland and so ill-provided with mail services, &nbsp; you can easily imagine with what interest one &nbsp; looks forward to the arrival of the post once a fortnight. Moreover it will not tax your imaginative powers unduly to picture to your- &nbsp; self the chagrin and disappointmcnt conse- &nbsp; quent upon residents here receiving only &nbsp; perhaps half of their letters and papers due &nbsp; &nbsp; when the mail arrives. This sort of treatment &nbsp; &nbsp; towards us is now becoming so intolerable that &nbsp; really something must be done by the Post- &nbsp; office authorities to alter this state of things &nbsp; for the better. No doubt country post-masters are to blame, &nbsp; &nbsp; and why gross negligence, incompetency, or &nbsp; &...
