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, &nbsp; &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; SIR, - The great and we may say only real obstacle that has presented itself to &nbsp; &nbsp; the successful cultivation of cotton is the want of sufficient labour at a cheap rate. Now this difficulty can soon be surmount- &nbsp; ed by introducing Coolies from India, a &nbsp; &nbsp; class in every way, suited to this particular occupation from habits, climate, etc., and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; whose sojourn amongst us would not be &nbsp; attended with any of those evils, that the &nbsp; fertile brain of certain parties have con- &nbsp; jured up, and who but display their total ignorance of this quiet and peaceable race, &nbsp; who lead in general a virtuous and harm- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; less life with their families, and are an ex- &...
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 &nbsp; &nbsp; 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- &nbsp; reparable injustice, whi ch may be done to &nbsp; the owners of property, and the whole &nbsp; town itself, were the Government blind &nbsp; enough to alienate allotment 10, of section &nbsp; 46, in its present state, by stopping the &nbsp; whole traffic in Quay street. The &nbsp; answer of Mr. Alderman Mansfield is &nbsp; certainly most cheering and refreshing: that the Council cannot interfere with &nbsp; &nbsp; private interests. Now, sir, the land in &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; question has no more been alienated by &nbsp; the Crown than the Yeppen Yeppen &nbsp; 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, &nbsp; or if they have, it has been allowed to &nbsp; &nbsp; slip from their minds ere they could de- &nbsp; vise some plan for carrying it out. The &nbsp; matter I refer to is that of Little Quay &nbsp; street (so called), which is no more than &nbsp; &nbsp; a narrow lane, and not worthy the name &nbsp; &nbsp; of street. This lane, I am sorry to say, &nbsp; &nbsp; has the majority of the business houses, and is also the leading thoroughfare of &nbsp; the town. It is a great pity that such &nbsp; &nbsp; should be the case. Nowhere is it of greater importance that all the streets (not the leading thoroughfares only) &nbsp; should be wide, that the inhabitants may &nbsp; ha...

To the Editor of the Bulletin SIR,-Supplying the town with pure &nbsp; water being of the utmost importance, &nbsp; I am induced to trouble you with this letter, as I imagine that we are at present &nbsp; &nbsp; quite astray in our notions on the sub- ject. In time we shall naturally expect to have water brought into the town in &nbsp; &nbsp; pipes, and laid on to the houses ; and, asj &nbsp; &nbsp; this cannot be done without a large out- &nbsp; &nbsp; lay, I would throw out the following suggestion, by which, I think, a constant &nbsp; supply of water could be maintained at the least expense. Let the corporation apply to the Go- &nbsp; vernment for the Crescent Lagoon, as a &nbsp; water reserve, and for a suitable piece of &nbsp; ground on the top of Athelstane Itauge, &nbsp; for the purpose of constructing a reser- &nbsp; 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: &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; of the rail are alike, so as to be reversed when desirable - in the one case the raise.d &nbsp; portion of the rail will meet the edge and &nbsp; flange of the wheel, and in the other it &nbsp; will fit into a groove prepared for it in &nbsp; the timber supports. The rails will be &nbsp; laid upon longitudinal logs, which will &nbsp; rest upon transverse sleep...
MASSACRE OF THE REV. G. K. AND MRS. GORDON, AT ERUMANGA. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861
MASSACRE OF THE REV. G.N. AND &nbsp; MRS. GORDON, AT ERUMANGA. Letters have been received by the Rev. William Cuthbertson of Sydney commu- &nbsp; nicating the distressing intelligence of the barbarous murder by the natives of &nbsp; Erumanga, of the Rev. G.N. and Mrs. &nbsp; &nbsp; Gordon, of the Nova Scotia Mission. &nbsp; One of the letters referred to is written &nbsp; &nbsp; [by] a resident, who was the only Euro- pean on the island of Erumanga at the &nbsp; &nbsp; time, excepting the missionaries. The &nbsp; particulars of the massacre may be ga- thered from the following extract:- &nbsp; "It is with feeling of deep melan- choly that I new have to communicate to you the distressing intelligence of the &nbsp; massacre by the natives here of our worthy, missionary and his wife, Mr. and Mrs Gordon. " This mournful event took place on the 20th ultimo, about one o'clock in the aft...
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) &nbsp; Your readers have already been informed &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; party was received in Melbourne on Sa- &nbsp; &nbsp; turday evening, by telegraph from Sand- hurst, and the wildest rumours of death &nbsp; and disaster prevailed during the night &nbsp; and part of Sunday, until they were set &nbsp; at rest by an extraordinary meeting of the Exploration Committee of the Royal &nbsp; Society, held on Sunday afternoon. &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. Brahe, who was left in command &nbsp; of the depot at Coopers Creek on the &nbsp; &nbsp; 16th December, by Mr. Burke, is the &nbsp; &nbsp; bearer of the sad intelligence of privation' &nbsp; and...
BURKE'S LAST DESPATCH FROM COOPER'S CREEK. "Cooper's Creek, Dec. 13, 1860. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 10 August 1861
BURKE'S LAST DESPATCH FROM COOPER'S &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; well. The road from Torowoto to Wright's &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; down the creek until the29ih of Novem- ber, in order to recruit the strength of the animals. On the 20th we arrived at what &nbsp; I considered to be an eligible spot for the &nbsp; depot,and we remained there (camp 63) until the 5th instant, when we were driven &nbsp; out by the rats, and obliged to move lower &nbsp; down, to the place from whene I now &nbsp; &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 &nbsp; by Mr. Bertram, I have carefully ex- amined the map of the town of Rock- &nbsp; hampton, as published by the Gov- vernment. &nbsp; In the first place no one can doubt that all the streets were laid out half a chain &nbsp; less in width than they should have been ; &nbsp; and to increase the evil, instead of assist- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ing to remedy it, our wise and thoughtful &nbsp; &nbsp; Corporation has been pleased to assimulate &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the small advantage that might have &nbsp; accrued to the public by th Surveyor &nbsp; &nbsp; placing section 61 some few feet further &nbsp; back than section 46 - allowing, as it seems, for thc curve of thc river. Our Conservators of Roads have, how- &nbsp; 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, &nbsp; &nbsp; 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 &nbsp; In its hopeless estate of slush; &nbsp; And it grows ha! ha! to your clothes ah! ah! &nbsp; &nbsp; In spite of the hardest brush. &nbsp; And when it is fine, if the sun should shine, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; You're no better off than before; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 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, &nbsp; And peppers your coat and your hat: &nbsp; And it flies ah! ah! in your eyes ah! ah! &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; And makes you blind as a bat. CENSORIUS &nbsp;
