A NEW SOCIAL MOVEMENT. (From the European Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 4 January 1872
A NSW SOCIAL MOVEMENT. (From Ute European Mail.) Air effort bas been in progress for Borne time past to unite the upper and work- ing classes in some scheme of legislation for the amelioration of the condition oí the people. It has been carried on almost entirely by the mediation of Mr. Scott Bussell, who alone has been cognisant of the names of the negotiators on either side. The suggestions came, in the first place, from a body of working men who meet under the chairmanship of Mr. Scott Bussell and the secretary- ship of Mr. George Potter, and bears the title of the Council of Skilled Work- men. On February 3 this Council em- powered its chairman to enter into negotiation with some peers who were anxious to knpw what were the real wishes of the working-men, and it was not till August 4 that fae was able to make an official statement that a Council of Legislation bad been formed by a number of peers and other gentlemen, and had empowered him to communicate to the Council of Skilled...

The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 4 January 1872
The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL, QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 1872. WHAT has become of tbe Member's Fund Committee? Perhaps some reader may deny our right to make the inquiry ; but we shall assume it, never- theless, and endeavour to push the question borne to those whom it may concern. The Member's Fund Com- mittee are a public body ; their proce ; dure is open to criticism by the Press ; and if they fail in their self-imposed duties, the public are entitled to know the reason why. Every elector is interested in this matter, for if the I member for the district is not provided I with the means to occupy the position of a gentleman, the blame may rest upon &nbsp; the Member's Fund Committee, but the disgrace will attach itself to the whole constituency. We touch this question with tho full knowledge of its extreme delicacy. We would rather make things pleasant to all men, and deal with subjects on which there would, be no fear of pro- voking unpleasant "e...

Hunter and Co., William-street, to receive a letter which had been signed by an influential and numerou body of tho electors of Rock- hampton, on the subject of the " deadlock " which is now producing so much dissatisfaction throughout Central and Northern Queensland. The deputation consisted of his Worship the Mayor, Mssrs. R. M. Hunter, H. Jones, W. Thomson, and W. Pattison. The MAYOR, after a few preftory remarks, presented the letter to Mr. Fyfe of which the following is a copy : TO ALEXR, FYFE, ESQ., M.L.A. DEAR Sir,-We, the undersigned, inhabitants of Rock- &nbsp; hampton desire to express to you our opinion, that we view wit extreme ? the action taken by the Oppo- sition ? credit of the colony is needlessly jeopardised, and that interests of more immediate importance are in danger of indefinite postponement.

THE NOVEL-READING DISEASE. (From the Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
THE NOVEL-BEADING DISEASE. (From Vie Examiner.) PHTSICIAÍÍS are familiar with a com- plaint which, although sufficiently specific, has yet no name of its own. The patient suffers from an alarming and morbid thirst, and consumes a perfectly fabulous amount of fluid, almost always of an unwholesome naturi. Wholesome food is refused ; no exercise is taken ; and the patient finally sinks into a flabby and sickly condition, which nothing but severe and deter- mined treatment wjll shake off. This dropsical habit of body finds its exact analogue in the specieB of mental dropsy which is produced by over- indulgence in three-volumed novela. The terrible complaint is one of the worst evils which modern civilisation has brought with it. Its progress is gradual, very insidious, and often almost imperceptible. At first, all that ¡B noticed is that the Bufferer is apt to be found bent over a novel at unnatural hours-as, say, in the early morning, or in the middle of a beautiful summer's afternoon...
THE QUEEN AND THE RUMOURED ESTABLISHMENT OF A REGENOY. (From the Morning Post, October 25.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
THE QUEEN AND THE BUMOURED ESTABLISHMENT OF A BEGENOT. (From the Morning Pott, October 25.) A THICK fog prevailed in London yester- day, and a strong rumour. The linkmen rendered darkness visible, and the gossips made obscurity manifest. The yellow smoke-filled mist was solid and tangible, and the story WRB circum- stantial, penetrating, and irresistible; but to-day it will lift with the vapour, and be dispelled with the smoke. Both fog and rumour have anticipated their month. They Bhould have waited for November, when the legitimate eclipse, and rumours of " splits in the Cabinet," annually recur. The tale told yesterday by every quid nunc was, that in conse- quence of the serious illness of the Queen, a Regency was to be established, or that, at any rate, the heir to the Crown was to be associated with her Majesty in the exercise of the Royal prerogative. Nay, BO far did the omnis- cience of the seers in the dark extend, that they knew that only one difficulty presented itself, wh...
AUSTRALIAN MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
AUSTRALIAN MEAT. THE news from the colonies to the effoct that several of the meat-preserving companies had retired from the business, has not had the effect of decreasing the demand. Mr. Daniel Tallerman, who, having established the retail trade ou a tolerably firm basis, is now directing himself to the wholesale, and taken wharfs and offices near the river, kindly obliges us with the following informa- tion on the subject. He says that the prices of meat are in favour of the producer. 2 lb. tins aro sold out, and holders can easily obtain GJd. per lb. for them. Larger tins are, of course, not worth so much money. The meat is to have a trial at the Lambeth Work bouse, in Carlisle gaol, and in many other public institutions. The meat is beginning to exercise its influence on the markets also. From Manchester it is reported that there was a fall of nearly 2d. per lb. in the wholesale meat market. The quotations were-for beef, first class, CJd. ; second-class, Cd. to GJd. ; third-clas...
