LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

LOCAL. Wood and brick buildings are springing   up in every part of thc town, yet the   totally inadequate house accommodation   is the greatest drawback to our advance - ment at the present time. Not to men - tion the scores of tents, several families   are residing at the hotels and boarding es - tablishments, unable to obtain a dwelling   at any price. We regret to notice that from the same cause Mr. Meiklejohn and family recently arrived per "Jenny Lind "   have gone to Gladstone. From our advertising columns it will be seen that in addition to the branch of the   Australian Joint Stock Bank previously established here, there is now one formed of the Bank of New South Wales, under     the management of Alexander Archer,   Esq. We understand, also, that the In- spector of the Union Bank of Australia,   John Simpson, Esq. is at the present time in Rockh...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

CALIFORNIA. The San Francinco Herald states that Professor Whitney is about to develop the resources of thc state. His first great field of investigation will be the coal mines of California. The possession of a given quantity of gold and silver, it adds, whether in ore, bullion, or coin, is the possession of so much actual wealth, and we consequently find that there are five hundred persons engaged in prospecting   for those metals, to every one employed in prosecting for coal, copper, iron, salt-   petre, &c. But as the profitable working   of our copper and iron mines, together with the cost of manufacturing almost every article we need, and the establish- ment of new lines of steamers, depend upon the coal product of California, Pro- fessor Whitney has done well to make it the first great object of his scientific in-   vestigations. We have abundance of native iron and copper, but are unable to work them profitably agai...

The Survey Department.---We hear with much regret that the head quarters 0f the Survey Department in these districts are about to be removed to Gayndah. Mr. [?] has been ap     pointed Commissioner of Crown Lands   for the Wide Bay and Burnett Districts, and goes at once to reside in our sister   town. There is ample work for three   surveyers in this district for some time to come, and it was but a week or two ago that orders were received in town for     the erecting of a Survey Office at the     Court House. This order has, we hear,   been countermanded, and that this re - moval of the Survey Department is but     the first of a series of indignaties to be   inflicted upon this favoured town. But the most humilating thing is that in - formation of this and other intended changes was received in Maryborough     &am...

THE KENNEDY. PORT DENISON, MAY 20, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

THE KENNEDY. PORT DENISON, MAY 20, 1861 IT gives me much pleasure to   continue a favourable report of   the aspect and prospects of affairs in the Kennedy District. From the efforts of a few indi- viduals, separated two or three hundred miles from the nearest white settlement, surrounded by numerous hostile savages, only some five weeks located on land, now in course of being surveyed,   and to none of which anyone can pretend to a secure indi- vidual title, and disappointed in finding the supplies of building timber that, from the report of an authority with the means to   know, and supposed to be capable of forming and giving an opinion, they had reason here to expect. I daresay you will scarcely anticipate any very striking results.   As yet, from the official quarters to the blacksmith's shop, tents, in some shape, are the general style of Port Denison. But we already begin   to see some structures of a more perma...

MRS. [?] BIRTHDAY SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

HER MAJESTY'S BIRTHDAY BALL. In consequence of the news received of the death of the Duchess of Kent, the ball was postponed from the 24th of May to the 2[4]th of June. The ball was given by his Excellency Sir G. F. Bowen, G.C.M.G., in the [Immigration] Barracks, Queen-street, [Brisbane]. The ball-room was tastefully decorated with native laurels, honey-suckle, bottle-brushes, and a variety of other [plants]. The array of flags of all nations gave an excellent variegated effect, whilst the chandeliers, adjusted with great care, gave a brilliancy rarely surpassed. About [8] o'clock in the evening, a heavy thunderstorm, accompanied with vivid lightning and heavy rain, visited the city. This cast a gloom over the [office], and doubtless, many were pre-                               &nbs...

TOTAL LOSS OF THE SCHOONER "HARF",ON WRECK REEF. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

TOTAL LOSS OF THE SCHOONER HARP, ON WRECK REEF. On Monday, the 24th ult., at 9 a.m. the   "Jenny Lind" sighted a whale boat off   Praner's Island, bearing down toward the   vessel, which afterwards proved to be a boat       containing a portion of the crew of the schooner "Harp", from Hobart Town. It appears that the "Harp" left Hobart Town         on April last for the Islands in search of [?] and on Friday, the 14th ult., she was off Wreck Reef, and had taken in about 100     [tons] when she missed [?tay?], and drifted on     to the rocks.

To the Editor of the Rocklampton [?] [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 9 July 1861

To the Editor of the Rockhampton Bulletin. DEAR SIR, — It will doubtless be [?] admitted that one of the most [important]   questions requiring consideration at the present time in this colony is that of the growth of cotton. I am glad to [?] that our friends in Brisbane and [Ipswich] are forming companies for the production of this valuable staple of commerce. I wish them great success. I hope ere long to [see] the   same thing in progress here. In general, [?]   refrain from coming forward in this [?] for the following reasons, (which I [fear to a] very great extent operates here,) [?] — [?] see clearly that cotton cannot be [cultivated]   by European labour to compete with the American markets : and again, that they have a thorough dislike, or what may be more truthfully called, a perfect hatred, to every [?] that cannont show a [white] skin   like themselves. It is painful to find such   feelings manif...

LOCAL.

The Weather.—During the week, three or four days of continuous rain has made the streets of the town almost impassable, so that business could only be carried with extreme discomfort and inconvenience.   Prompt and decisive steps should at once be taken to remedy this state of things.

THE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 13 July 1861

THE COMET. The Comet which has excited so much interest of late, is now visible in the northern heavens immediately after sun- set. The following remaks respecting it, are from the pen of the Rev. W. Scott, of the Sydney Observatory :— " The comet is certainly a very fine one, and I would recommend all who have any curiosity in such matters to give a look towards the east any fine morning between four and six o'clock. To see   the full extent of the tail the observer should be in a dark room, turn his face towards the comet, close his eyes for a minute, then open them, and he will see   much more than if he neglects to take those precautions. " Very little advantage it derived from examining the comet with a powerful telescope ; the nucleus appears very bright and well defined, but presents none of those peculiar markings or projections   sometimes seen in such objects ; and the   general effect is lost from the circumstance that o...
