GOLD IN NEW GUINEA.—The Sydney cor- &nbsp; respondent of the Brisbane Telegraph " wires " &nbsp; on January 4 :—A telegram from Cooktown &nbsp; reports that the steamer Atjeh, from Port &nbsp; Darwin, has arrived at the former town. The Pearl fishers from Torres Straits, who have &nbsp; come down by her, confirm the report of the &nbsp; discovery of gold at New Guinea. When the &nbsp; &nbsp; news of Mr. Goldie's succcss arrived at Port &nbsp; Darwin the gold-diggers there commenced to make arrangements for going over to the &nbsp; island. It appears from an account of Goldie's &nbsp; discovery in the Evening News of to-day, that he found the gold on a river running into or near Port Moresby...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
RAPID PROGRESS—PREMIER &nbsp; &nbsp; POSITION. Great popularity—Intrinsic merit. Reduced Price of the HOME COMPANION. It &nbsp; &nbsp; is only a few months since the first shipment arrived ; &nbsp; &nbsp; but the Machine is so really good, that there are already more Home Companions sold in Queensland &nbsp; monthly than are sold of any other Hand Sewing Machine. This rapid success exhausted our stock again and again ; but we have now a good supply and plenty more to arrive. The great consumption has &nbsp; warranted us in making a large contract with the &nbsp; Manufacturer at a lower rate than formerly, which enables us to reduce the retail price to Four Pounds Ten Shillings. We will not enumerate the good points of the Machine we can do better. We will give a local reference at the nearest township to any in- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; tending purchaser, as the Machines are already in every ...
The Morning Bulletin, ROCKHAMPTON. MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
THE MORNING BULLETIN, ROCKHAMPTON. MONDAY, JANUARY 14, 1878. It is not surprising that the at- tention of colonists engaged in the pastoral industry is turned to the newly occupied country in Western &nbsp; Queensland, and to the adjacent terri- tory of South Australia beyond the &nbsp; Queensland border. In the New &nbsp; South Wales and Victoria, as well as the Eastern portions of this colony, &nbsp; squatting is rapidly becoming a thing of the past ; but the great plains and &nbsp; rolling downs of the Far West promise &nbsp; to remain for many years a squat- ters' paradise. The country is so &nbsp; remote from port and centres of population that it will apparently offer no attractions to the small settler for the &nbsp; next quarter of a century. Yet it can be now profitably occupied by cattle, and when penetrated by railways will afford remunerative pasturage for sheep. In &nbsp; former times the argument w...
CABLEGRAMS. [SPECIAL CORRESPONDENTS MESSAGES.] GREAT TURKISH DEFEAT. LONDON, January 10. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878

The &nbsp; Russians having forced the Trajan Pass, took &nbsp; the Turkish troops occupying the Shipka Pass &nbsp; in the rear. General Skobeloff holds the Shipka Pass, &nbsp; and General Mirsky occupies Kazanlik, south &nbsp; of the Balkans. Sulieman Pasha has been re-called to Stam- &nbsp; boul.
[?] QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] BRISBANE, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
Telegraph Despatches. QUEENSLAND. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENTS.] BRISBANE, January 13. &nbsp; A letter has been addressed to Governor Kennedy by Bishop Selwyn, calling attention &nbsp; to the inadvisability of allowing returning Polynesians to liecom possessed of firearms, This letter is believed to have led to the recent proclamation prohibiting the export to the &nbsp; islands of firearms or munitions of war. The Telegraph understands that in the event of Mr. Stewart's resignation being sent in the vacant seat for Brisbane will be con- tested by the Hon. R. Pring, Q.C., and Mr. Samuel Davis, merchant, of this city. Mr. Walter Hill, Curator of the Metro- politan Botanic Gardens, has prepared a &nbsp; collection of Queensland vegetable produce for &nbsp; the Paris Exposition. The exhibits will be &nbsp; accompanied by a special catalogue. The Government Gazette of yesterday contains a proclamation offering a free pardon to any &...
THE SOUTHERN COLONIES. [REUTER'S TELEGRAMS.] NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, January13. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
THE SOUTHERN COLONIES. [REUTER'S TELEGRAMS.] NEW SOUTH WALES. &nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY, January 13. A deputation from the Chamber of Com- &nbsp; merce yesterday waited upon the Postmaster- &nbsp; &nbsp; General to urge the laying of a duplicate cable &nbsp; connecting Australia with Europe. In reply &nbsp; the Postmaster-General said be was favourable &nbsp; to the project. All that was required was the co-operation of Victoria and New Zealand, &nbsp; both of which colonies he believed were also &nbsp; favourable. He did not think it likely that New South Wales and the other colonies would be willing to connect the second cable with Queensland at Normanton, owing to the expense involved in doing so.
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, January 13. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, January 13. It is asserted that the Government, in the event of the deadlock not being over by the end of February, insist that there shall be a dissolution to test the feeling of the country on the late action taken in dismissing the civil servants. It is also intimated that in the event of the Opposition holding out, the Government will &nbsp; go to further extremes for the carrying out of their policy, one part of their scheme being to collect all revenue in coin, and make all payments in "greenbacks," or legal tender &nbsp; notes, to be guaranteed by the gold held in &nbsp; the Treasury for the full amount represented &nbsp; by the notes issued. lt is believed, however, that this step will only be resorted to under &nbsp; extreme circumstances. &nbsp; The Opposition censure the Governor for the &nbsp; speech be delivered recently at Portland. &nbsp; Sarah Ward, living at Luton, is said to have &...
THE DINGO TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
THE DINGO TRAGEDY &nbsp; ON Friday last Mr. B. Ballard, J. P., held a magisterial inquiry at Dingo touching the death of a stranger who had shot himself the day before, as reported in Saturday's Bulletin. It is only necessary to give a summary of the &nbsp; evidence. &nbsp; Sergeant John Carey, stationed at Dingo, deposed that about five o'clock on Thursday afternoon he received information that a man had shot himself. He went to the place in- dicated, which was about a Quarter of a mile from the station, close to the railway line, where there were a number of persons camped. &nbsp; He saw a man lying on his back, in an un- &nbsp; conscious state, with a large round wound in &nbsp; his forehead, and a portion of the brain pro- truding. At the same time, he received a Colt's navy revolver from Neil Petersen, a Dingo storekeeper, who said he had taken it from between the man's feet. The weapon was then hot, and on examining it he found...
A WORD FOR THE MENNONITES. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 14 January 1878
A WORD FOR THE MENNONITES. MR. BOUCAUT'S ambitious idea of establishing &nbsp; &nbsp; an extensive Mennonite colony in the Northern &nbsp; Territory was received (says the Australian) with considerable favour when it was first pro- &nbsp; &nbsp; mulgated, but the termination of his tenure of &nbsp; power dashed the project to the ground. We &nbsp; &nbsp; are not aware whether Mr. Boucaut intends to &nbsp; revive the project now that he is again in &nbsp; power, but the evidence that the Colton &nbsp; Government demanded is certainly to be &nbsp; obtained if he cares to apply in the proper quarter. The Mennenite settlements in the &nbsp; north-west of Canada, although not established more than three years, are thriving in a &nbsp; manner which has astonished all who have &nbsp; visited them. They comprise eight townships &nbsp; on the Rat River reserve, east...
