The Rockhampton Bulletin CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

The Rockhampton Bulletin and CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1861 THAT Slavery should have been cherished,     and permitted to grow up and expand itself into an institution under the freest and purest of all forms of government, (theoretically.) is an anomaly not easily explained. Slavery has not, however, attained its present proportions in the States of America, without encountering a power- ful opposition. A social and political agi- tation has been carried on, and so far as the legislation of the country was con- cerned, the parties appeared evenly ba- lanced, until the recent election of Mr. LINCOLN, as President. The pro-slavery   men, finding their political power had sustained a decisive defeat, in a charac- teristic spirit raise the cry of secession, and seize the forts and other property of the Federal Government-thus placing themselves in direct antagonism to liberty and good government. While the lightness of th...

COOLIE LABOUR AND COTTON CULTIVATION. To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

COOLI!. LABOUR AND COTTON CULTIVATION. To the Editor of the Bulletin   SIR, - The great and we may say only real obstacle that has presented itself to     the successful cultivation of cotton is the want of sufficient labour at a cheap rate. Now this difficulty can soon be surmount-   ed by introducing Coolies from India, a     class in every way, suited to this particular occupation from habits, climate, etc., and             whose sojourn amongst us would not be   attended with any of those evils, that the   fertile brain of certain parties have con-   jured up, and who but display their total ignorance of this quiet and peaceable race,   who lead in general a virtuous and harm-       less life with their families, and are an ex- &amp...

Correspondence. The Editor will not be responsible for the sentiments of Correspondents. To the Editor of the Rockhampton Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

Correspondence The Editor will not be ewsponsible for the sentiments of Correspondents     Sir, - I perceive in your last issue, in the proceedings of the Municipal Council, a Mr. Bertram has very properly called the attention of the Council to an ir-   reparable injustice, whi ch may be done to   the owners of property, and the whole   town itself, were the Government blind   enough to alienate allotment 10, of section   46, in its present state, by stopping the   whole traffic in Quay street. The   answer of Mr. Alderman Mansfield is   certainly most cheering and refreshing: that the Council cannot interfere with     private interests. Now, sir, the land in         question has no more been alienated by   the Crown than the Yeppen Yeppen   lagoon, and...

To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

To the Editor of the Bulletin. DEAR SIR,-There is a matter which urgently requires the attention of our corporation. To the present time our worthy aldermen have not thought of it,   or if they have, it has been allowed to     slip from their minds ere they could de-   vise some plan for carrying it out. The   matter I refer to is that of Little Quay   street (so called), which is no more than     a narrow lane, and not worthy the name     of street. This lane, I am sorry to say,     has the majority of the business houses, and is also the leading thoroughfare of   the town. It is a great pity that such     should be the case. Nowhere is it of greater importance that all the streets (not the leading thoroughfares only)   should be wide, that the inhabitants may   ha...

To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

To the Editor of the Bulletin SIR,-Supplying the town with pure   water being of the utmost importance,   I am induced to trouble you with this letter, as I imagine that we are at present     quite astray in our notions on the sub- ject. In time we shall naturally expect to have water brought into the town in     pipes, and laid on to the houses ; and, asj     this cannot be done without a large out-     lay, I would throw out the following suggestion, by which, I think, a constant   supply of water could be maintained at the least expense. Let the corporation apply to the Go-   vernment for the Crescent Lagoon, as a   water reserve, and for a suitable piece of   ground on the top of Athelstane Itauge,   for the purpose of constructing a reser-   voir. A steam-engine of thirty h...

THE PITT-STREET TRAMWAY, SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

THE PITT-STREET TRAMWAY, SYDNEY. -The Marcianns, in which the rails and carriages for the Pitt-street tramway were shipped, sailed from Liverpool on the 27th of April, and is therefore daily ex- pected. In forwarding the order for the materials it was directed that tenders should be invited for supplying them:   this having been done, the successful ten- derer was Mr. G. F. Train, who is widely known as the introducer of street rail- ways into England. In the manufacture of the rails the most recent invention was adopted ; the upper and the lower sides   of the rail are alike, so as to be reversed when desirable - in the one case the raise.d   portion of the rail will meet the edge and   flange of the wheel, and in the other it   will fit into a groove prepared for it in   the timber supports. The rails will be   laid upon longitudinal logs, which will   rest upon transverse sleep...

VICTORIAN EXPLORATION EXPEDITION. (From the Correspondent S.M. Herald) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861

VICTORIAN EXPLORATION EXPEDITION. (From the Correspondent S.M. Herald)   Your readers have already been informed   by telegram of the return of part of the Victorian exploring expedition without any late news of their leader Mr. Burke. The first intimation of the return of the   party was received in Melbourne on Sa-     turday evening, by telegraph from Sand- hurst, and the wildest rumours of death   and disaster prevailed during the night   and part of Sunday, until they were set   at rest by an extraordinary meeting of the Exploration Committee of the Royal   Society, held on Sunday afternoon.     Mr. Brahe, who was left in command   of the depot at Coopers Creek on the     16th December, by Mr. Burke, is the     bearer of the sad intelligence of privation'   and...

BURKE'S LAST DESPATCH FROM COOPER'S   CREEK. " Coopers Creek, Dec. 13, I860. "Sir,-I have the honour to report that the expedition under my command left Torowoto on the 31st of October, and arrived at Cooper 's Creek on the 11th of November. Men, horses, and camels   well. The road from Torowoto to Wright's       Creek is good, but from Wright's Creek to the point where we struck Cooper's it is in some places very stony, although not by any means impracticable. From the llth of November we travelled slowly   down the creek until the29ih of Novem- ber, in order to recruit the strength of the animals. On the 20th we arrived at what   I considered to be an eligible spot for the   depot,and we remained there (camp 63) until the 5th instant, when we were driven   out by the rats, and obliged to move lower   down, to the place from whene I now   &a...

To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861

To the Editor of the Bulletin DEAR SIR, - Since the question of the stoppage of Quay-street has been mooted   by Mr. Bertram, I have carefully ex- amined the map of the town of Rock-   hampton, as published by the Gov- vernment.   In the first place no one can doubt that all the streets were laid out half a chain   less in width than they should have been ;   and to increase the evil, instead of assist-         ing to remedy it, our wise and thoughtful     Corporation has been pleased to assimulate       the small advantage that might have   accrued to the public by th Surveyor     placing section 61 some few feet further   back than section 46 - allowing, as it seems, for thc curve of thc river. Our Conservators of Roads have, how-   ever,...

AIR— THE MONKS OF OLD. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861

AIR - THE MONKS OF QLD. Many have told of the roads of old,     What a swamp of muck they were; But a Rockhampton way, on a rainy day Would make a street-sweeper swear. For it goes beyond the Slough of Despond   In its hopeless estate of slush;   And it grows ha! ha! to your clothes ah! ah!     In spite of the hardest brush.   And when it is fine, if the sun should shine,       You're no better off than before;       For it turns to dust and at every gust It alites in every pore. And it tries, as it dries, in a cloud to rise,   And peppers your coat and your hat:   And it flies ah! ah! in your eyes ah! ah!         And makes you blind as a bat. CENSORIUS
