GAYNDALL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
GAYNDAH. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) THE two Chinamen mentioned in my last &nbsp; &nbsp; as having been apprehended as " acces- &nbsp; &nbsp; sories after the fact" to the murder of &nbsp; their countryman Johnny, have been &nbsp; committed for trial, but are admitted to &nbsp; bail in £500 each. It is reported that &nbsp; one of the gentlemen who lately signalised &nbsp; themselves as opponents of the native police, has been apprehended on a charge of rape, the prosecutrix being the wife of one of his shepherds. The case will be initiated at Nanango. The publican interest is at war with the Police Magistrate, he having fined some parties for letting out their lamps at night. Boniface has got control of the Argus, and a medical gentleman here writes to order numerous squibs and libels on Mr. Haynes (our P. M ) The doctor is now editor of the paper, and &nbsp...
FRENCH OCCUPATION OF HOME [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
FRENCH OCCUPATION OF HOME. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE Independent Belg???ers it is in a &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; position to state, in the most reliant form, &nbsp; that negotiation have commenced between the Cabinets of Paris and Turin, and that &nbsp; they are on the eve of coming to an ar- &nbsp; &nbsp; rangement. The Italian Government is &nbsp; to take an engagement to respect the Pon- &nbsp; tifical territory, as it now exists, and to prevent any invasion of it from any quar- &nbsp; ter soever. France is to inform the Holy &nbsp; See of this arrangement, and to announce &nbsp; to the Court of Rome an intention of &nbsp; withdrawing its troops, a part directly, &nbsp; and a part at a fixed period. France &nbsp; would, at the same time, officially recog- &nbsp; nise the Kingdom of Italy. &nbsp; The...

The New York Herald says: - "The reign of terror having been fairly inaugurated in the rebel States, they are now loudly crying for a &nbsp; dictator. The Richmond Examiner would have &nbsp; a man clothed with dictatorial functions, "for the reason that corruption of power by the chief for the preservation of the people from robbers and murderers will be reckoned as &nbsp; &nbsp; genius and patriction by all sensible men in &nbsp; the world now, and by every historian that will judge the deal hereafter. Jef Davis is the &nbsp; man."
ENGLAND AND THE OCCCPATION OF SYRIA BY THIS FRENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
ENGLAND AND THE OCCCPATION OF &nbsp; SYRIA BY THE FRENCH. &nbsp; A LONG discsussion has taken place in the French Senate on the petition in favour of the occupation of Syria. M. Billault gave an historical outline of the events in Syria, and said that the almost powerless state of Turkey obliges the Great Powers to act with extreme circumspection. He mentioned the negotiations that preceeded &nbsp; the occupation of Syria by French troops which was prolonged until the 5th June, notwithstanding some objections. Eng- land, he said, only consented to the pro- &nbsp; longation on the express condition that it &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; should be the last term. With regard to the organisation of Syria, the Government &nbsp; has weighty reasons for supposing that the proposal to appoint a Christian chief only, who would govern the whole popu- lation of Mount Lebanon, has great &nbsp; chances of being adopted....

SYDNEY COMMERICAL &nbsp; MR. W. BARNETT, of York-street, wholesale &nbsp; &nbsp; grocer, &c., has suspended payment. His liabilities are estimated at about £14706, assets &nbsp; about £13,300. A meeting of his creditors is &nbsp; &nbsp; called for Monday next. &nbsp; Business has been a little more active this week, but there is still very great caution ob- served in entering into trantactions of a specu- lative character. &nbsp; Vessels arrived from foreign ports:- Marquis of Argyle, from London, with general merchan- &nbsp; &nbsp; dise ; Anglo-Indian, from Mauritius, with 3471 bags of sugar; Chivalier, from Liverpool, with &nbsp; general merchandise; Bard of Avon, from &nbsp; Liverpool, with general merchandise ; John Masterman, from London, with general mer- chandise ; and the Anna Digna, from Manila, with 30,462 bags of sugar, 701 bags of coffee, &nbsp; 100 cases of ci...
PUNT FOR THE FIRZROY. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
PUNT FOR THE FITZROY The debate in the Legislative Assembly on Mr. Fitzsimmons motion for a grant of &nbsp; &nbsp; £400 for a punt across the Fitzroy, will be of local interest, and we therefore re- port it in full. July 30th. Mr. FITZSIMMONS moved - " That this House will on Wednesday next, resolve itself into a committee of &nbsp; the whole, to consider of an address to &nbsp; the Governor, praying that his Excellency &nbsp; will be pleased to cause to be placed upon a further Supplementary Estimate for 1862, sufficient sums for a punt over the Fitzroy at Rockhampton, and for build - ing kitchen, &c., to the Court-house at &nbsp; Gladstone; and also the sum of £75 as &nbsp; an addition to the salary of the Sub Col- lector of Customs at Rockhampton." A short discussion ensued, which re- sulted in the withdrawal of the motion; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Mr. FITZSIMMONS giving notice of one to-morrow (t...

BIRD AND WORMALD'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
BIRD AND WORMALD'S REPORT &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tilt demand for horses which we noticed in, &nbsp; our last, still continues, and more particularly &nbsp; for good strong roadsters. In consequence of &nbsp; the fresh caused by late rains we have been &nbsp; &nbsp; unable to bring to market many which would &nbsp; otherwise have been offered. Our quotation for &nbsp; &nbsp; really good we quote a shade higher than last week. Bullocks are still in demand, with few offer- ing; and as the shearing season is now advanc- ing, we expect a still further inquiry. &nbsp; Land is maintaining its price. We have sold allotments Nos. 1 and 10, in section No. 9, for £60 each, and have still many anxious buyers.

Correspondence (The Editor will not be responsible for the sentiments of Correspondents.) &nbsp; WH-E-U-G-H!-WHATS ALL THIS NOISE ABOUT? To the Editor of the Rockhampton Bulletin. SIR,-I cannot remain silent without a word to "Flagstaff," a "Ratepayer, "' &c. , &c., in your last issue, as well as to similar attacks in some previous issues. I would just hint to these ratepayers that &nbsp; they have not yet given the corporation &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; time to complete one single undertaking, &nbsp; before applying their cat-o'-nine-tails. The Council are no doubt endeavouring &nbsp; with the small means at their disposal to make the most use of it, and are decidedly &nbsp; more eutitled to our cordial assistance in &nbsp; this difficulty than the unmerited abuse &nbsp; heaped upon them. I would beg to inform &nbsp; ratepayers that £1000 goes but a very &nbsp; little way in pr...

SHADOWS. A ?? BY ??. ??. TEXT - Shadow all the wedded life, Every boy must have a wife, Every ?? will be wed, &nbsp; Eager heart and simple head, Sure of hapiness complete:- &nbsp; What a shadow! What deceit! &nbsp; &nbsp; When the nuptual link is tied, &nbsp; Shadow husband! Shadow bride! &nbsp; Mr. H?? - What shadows we are, and what shadows we pursue! This ex- claimation is old and wrinkly; and is &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; therefore the more worthy of our con- siderate regard. We are nothing but shadows in pursuit of shadows; the Deity &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; is the reluctance, and life the sun that &nbsp; causes them. When that is set, the in- dividual shadows are seen as no more upon the dial of the earth; love all is one uni- &nbsp; &nbsp; versal ??. But life itself is a mere &nbsp; shadow - a walking shadow, according to Shakespheare - a fleeting shadow, acc...

The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER &nbsp; SATURDAY, AUGUST 17, 1861. THE first tale of land at Port Donison, is a matter of interest to the whole colony, as marking another epoch in the colony of Queensland ; but it is especially in- teresting to the people of Rockhampton, because the claims of their township to be considered as the proper and legitimate place of sale will, we have good reason to believe, be wholly disregarded by the Government. The sixth clause of the &nbsp; &nbsp; " Alienation of Crown Lands' Act " dis- &nbsp; tinctly provides that " lands shall be &nbsp; offered for sale by public auction at the office of the Land Agent in, or nearest to, the district in which such lands are offered for sale ; " and we are at a loss to discover the grounds upon which the Government proceed iu holding the first sale at Brisbane, when Rockhampton is so distinctly the duly legalised locality. When we say that we are at ...
LOCAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
LOCAL. NATIONAL SCHOOL - We are gratified to learn that there is now a prospect of the early &nbsp; festablishment of a National School in Rock- hampton. The quietude of the committee has &nbsp; arisen, we understand, from a difficulty in rais- &nbsp; tng the requisite funds. It is thought that &nbsp; £1500 will be required. The committee have &nbsp; therefore decided on making an effort to obtain subscriptions to the amount of £500, and when &nbsp; that is accomplished, they will apply to the &nbsp; Government for double the amount so raised, in accordance with the provisions of the Act of &nbsp; Parliament. We hear that the subscriptions and promises to the present time amount to about £300; and that with regard to the re- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; maining £200 required, Captain Hunter and &nbsp; Mr. W.J. Brown intend making a canvass on &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tuesday n...

Permission was granted on condition that he remove them to the edge of the foot-path when the street is formed.

GLADSTONE (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
GLADSTONE (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) ALLOW me in this my opening communi- &nbsp; cation to congratulate you, and also the &nbsp; inhabitants of the northern districts, in &nbsp; the weekly issue of thc BULLETIN news- &nbsp; paper. Its publication certainly confersj &nbsp; a marked boon, on the inhabitants gene- &nbsp; rally. It supplies an acknowledged ''want" and henceforth it must be regarded as a sine qua non of our social and poli- &nbsp; tical existence. And at the same time, &nbsp; the numerous "advertisements " which &nbsp; the BULLETIN already contains, and the very satisfactory character of its readable &nbsp; matter, would lead one to augur favour- &nbsp; ably to its ultimate success to the spirited &nbsp; proprietors. &nbsp; &nbsp; Gladstone, of late, has been exhibiting &nbsp; signs of re-animation and decided progress. Every one knows how disastrous...
MARYBOROUGH. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
MARYOROUGH &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT) YOUR readers will remember that in my &nbsp; &nbsp; last I stated that two practical men had arrived here from Victoria with the inten- tion of starting a steam saw-mill. Now, &nbsp; I am happy to add, that they have made a thorough examination of this neigh- &nbsp; bourhood; and have succeeded in obtain- ing three acres of land with river frontage in a most eligible position. Mr. P'almer (the Mayor here) has, if lam correctly informed, disposed of said land at a very reasonable price indeed. It is situated a little higher up than Mr. P.'s store, and is a portion of his garden. Further, I may state that Messrs. Gladwell and &nbsp; &nbsp; Greathead have arranged to supply Mr. &nbsp; Palmer with '260,000 feet sawn pine, to &nbsp; be delivered in six months. This timber is intended to minister to the wants of &nbsp; your freeholder...
BRISBANE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 5TH. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
BRISBANE. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 5TH. Did you ever see the Colonial Secretary &nbsp; scowl? I suppose you have not. The hon. gentleman has never yet paid a visit &nbsp; to his constituents on the " frontiers of civilisation," and has never ashtonished &nbsp; the nerves of Rockhampton gossips, by his personal appearance, so that the probability of your being acquainted with the aspect of his physiognomy under any circumstances is somewhat scant. Allow me then to inform you that when Mr. Herbert does scowl-and &nbsp; he has done so at every sitting of the House this session-his frontispiece bears a most unloveable appearance, and no man ever demonstrated more conclusively the truth of Lavater's theory than the &nbsp; &nbsp; Colonial Secretary. But what, you will say, has the ugliest aspect of Mr. Her- bert's "mug" got to do with a metro- politan news letter? Well, I'll tell you. &nbsp; We have got ho...
