A GUSHING BILLET-DOUX. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 25 January 1872

A GUSHING BILLET-DOUX. THE Buffalo Commercial Advertiser re- ports a romantic breach of promise case. It says: Prom the evidence it appears that the parties both live in or near Onondaga, that Harris bas been a frequent visitor for about two years and a half at the house of the plaintiff, a widow woman «zearly thirty years of age, with tijree children. It seems to have been the opinion of the friends of the plaintiff (and no doubt she thought so herself) that Harris would marry her; but he, from some unaccountable cause, a few months ago suddenly discovered that he loved another young lady better, and verified this belief a short time since by marrying that other lady. Hence this action brought by the plaintiff to recover damages, to apply as a salve to her wounded affections. The following tender epistle, sent by the loving swain, will interest our readers, and we recom- mend it as a model love letter: "My Dear Miss M.,-Every time I think of you my heart flops up and down like a ch...

In the first place a suitable engine house ia urgently required, the present one being inconveniently situated and difficult of access in or after wet weather. Attached to the engine house should bc a small residence for the engine keeper, and this would save £17 per annum, the present engine keeper having agreed to accept a house rent free, in lieu of a salary. By this arrangement the great additional advantage would be 'gained of having a man always on tba spot.

STATISTICS OF VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 25 January 1872

STATISTICS OP VIOTOEIA. THE Melbourne Correspondent of tbe & M. Herald supplies au interesting" summary of the statistics of Victoria: A further instalment bf statistics of tho colony, devoted to interchange, crime, and production, bas been issued from the Government Printing-office, and affords some very instructive items for all classes of tho community. The general result is undoubtedly the in- creased prosperity of the country. In dealing with the question of interchange, the Segistrar-Ghsneral tells ns that' taking the ten years past, from 1861 to 1870, on the items of wages, earnings have bad an upward tendency, and where a slight fnlling-off is perceptible in Borne trades, it is more than counter- balanced in the rise obtainable in others, mainly in some of the remote townships -and to add to tbis satisfactory^state of things, the cost of living bas been gradually reduced.

THE GEEMAN LOSSES BY THE WAB. A. FEW days ago I had occasion to cal upon a gentleman residing in the imme- diate vicinity of Barmen. He was temporarily absent when I called, and I was received by a yoong lady in deep (nourning, whose thin, pale half-tran- sparent race bore the unmistakable mark of a threatening early death. I had called for some special information on the subject of the relief of the poor in Elberfeld and Barmen. As the young ladp was unable to give me the papers referring to the matter, I was shown into a room, there to await the return of the master of the house. There my ; eyes fell on a large family Bible which lay on a Bide-table. I could not resist j the temptation to read. I found that the gentleman whose arrival I was awaiting there had had a family of eight. children, four 'sons and four daughters. His wife had died some twenty years ago, and all their daugb Of the sons, the eldeBt had fallen Düppel, in the Danish war of 1861. Following the entry of his dea...

IT seen» a pity that Mr. Pring should hare been subjected to the indignity ol ernst by a policeman. No doubt his offence «ss a very aggravated one. He committed a common assault within the sacred precincts of the Legis- lative Assembly, and himself acknowledged the necessity of political ostracism for the time being in consequence. No doubt the 8peakor is supported in bis action by the law, but there was no nsoessity to put the law in force in this particular manner. Tho moment a "common " policeman put bis hand on Mr. Pring's ehoulder, he was no longer a political brawler* who had taken more wine than was good for him. That policeman's touch at once transformed him into a martyr, and the people at Brisbane et once regarded him aa a sufferer for the truth's sake. In consequence great sympathy liss been excited, and the next phase of the unlucky business will be Mr. Pring re- elected either without opposition or by a eweep- j ing majority, and the honorable gentleman will j resume hi...
