LATE NEWS. By the "Jenny Lind " we have Sydney papers to the 3rd instant. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 17 August 1861
LATE NEWS BY the "Jenny Lind " we have Sydney &nbsp; papers to the 3rd instant. &nbsp; The troops, it is anticipated, will have &nbsp; reached Lambing Flat but nothing &nbsp; definite is known as to what, if anything, &nbsp; &nbsp; has been done. So far as advices have yet &nbsp; gone, the aspect of things is rather alarming. &nbsp; lt may be quite true, as the friends of the rioters aver, that everything is quiet at the &nbsp; Flat, and that the rights of persons and of &nbsp; property are at present well respected. But it is equally true, as the same parties admit &nbsp; - nay, almost rather triumphantly - that the diggers are arming, and will probably resist any attempt to apprehend such of the lead- &nbsp; &nbsp; ing rioters as still remain on the gold field. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The supremacy of the law, if it is to be &nbsp; maintained at all,...

LATEST COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861
LATEST COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. London, Wednesday morning June 26. &nbsp; " The discount market had not experi- enced any alteration of striking impor- tance, but during the last few days the demand has become somewhat brisker, and a somewhat increased movement has been excited at the Bank of England. The market must be expected to con- tinue rather tight until the market is turned, and the mercantile engagements maturing on the 1st of July are met. Considering the contraction of trade, which is taking place in all directions, and the fact that, notwithstnding the drain to America, gold is accumulating in the Bank, there is an impression that the money market will then become easier, and that a moderate reduction will take &nbsp; place in the rate of discount. In Lombard-street yesterday the rates for the best bills were 5½ to 6 per cent. In the Stock Exchange money had been much wanted, and commanded yes- terday 6 to 7 per cent. on Government securities.
LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861
LONDON WOOL REPORT. June. - The May sales closed on the 6th Jone, with the same firmness and &nbsp; spirit manifested at the opening, and for &nbsp; good and fine flocks from all parts the &nbsp; competition was more keen towards the close: while on middle and faulty par- cels the buyers had to advance. The ar- rivals for July already reach 70,000 bales, &nbsp; and with ships expected, may probably run up the quantity to 90,000 bales. As to the probable range of prices then to be established, much depends on the pros- pects of the harvest and money market. The dulness at Bradford, which has caused so serious a fall in the new clip of the home growth, averaging fully 3d. to 4d. per lb., has produced some flatness in that market ; and it rather confirms the &nbsp; opinion that a decline in wool generally is likely to take place when the great &nbsp; sale of the year commences.
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861
EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE. Clouds are again gathering over Aus- &nbsp; tria. Discontent increases from hour to hour in Hungary, and it is thought neces- sary to concentrate large masses of troops in Pesth. The state of things in Poland is no &nbsp; better. The new reforms turn out to be mero shams. The exasperated people are more inflamed than ever, and serious disturbances are apprehended. &nbsp; The recognition of the Kingdom, of Italy by France has been officially an- &nbsp; nounced in the Moniteur, and in the French Chamber of Deputies. France has declined a proposal, made by Spain and Austria, that the Catholic European powers should become the joint protectors of the Pope's temporal , &nbsp; power. &nbsp; &nbsp; The Sultan of Turkey is dead, and has been succeeded by his brother. Count Cavour died on the 6th of June. His death is severely felt throughout Italy. A tribute of respect was paid to his memory in the British Parlia...
To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861
To the Editor of the Bulletin. &nbsp; &nbsp; MR. EDITOR, - I am glad to have to congratulate the townsfolk of Rock- &nbsp; hampton in having the benefit of an es- &nbsp; tablislied Press : and I am sure the &nbsp; spirited proprietor is deserving the thanks of the whole community for being, as he is, the pioneer of the " Press" in North- ern Queensland. In crawling from under the dray, where I had been smugly ensconced during the late rains that have fallen in abundance, judge my surprise when I fell in, as luck would have it, with the BULLETIN. We all jumped for joy to think that the "Press" had at last actually ap- &nbsp; peared in town. Well, the first thing we did was to make a libation at the shrine &nbsp; &nbsp; of " Bacchus" for its success, which was &nbsp; carried by acclamation. &nbsp; &nbsp; In perusing the BULLETIN'S columns &nbsp; &nbsp; I see Rockhampton has got a "S...

THE FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861
&nbsp; THE FIGHT FOE THE CHAMPIONSHIP &nbsp; The fight for the championship of the &nbsp; price ring, between Hurst and Mace, &nbsp; came off on the 10th June, on an &nbsp; island in thc Medway. The Times gave &nbsp; the following sickening account of the encounter :-" The contrast between the &nbsp; two men as they entered the ring was &nbsp; even more startlingly disproportionate' &nbsp; than that between Heenan and Sayers. &nbsp; Hurst stood nearly 6 feet 3 inches in &nbsp; height, and weighed sixteen stone, while &nbsp; his gigantic and swarthy chest and limbs, in which the muscles stood out in great &nbsp; folds and knots, lay like bosses of bronze, and made his figure look even larger and &nbsp; more formidable, if possible, than it was &nbsp; in reality. Looking at his massive pro- &nbsp; portions-the evidences of tremendous &nbsp; strength, ...
