NEW SOUTH WALES. (From the Sydney papers.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

NEW SOUTH WALES.   (From the Sydney Papers.)   A CHINAMAN named Doeng has been ap- prehended in the Hunter River district, upon the charge of having, in Queensland, murdered a fellow countryman with whom he had been gambling. The Orpheonist Society-a recently organised association for the practice of vocal music, gave a preliminary concert on Monday evening at the School of Arts. The Central Criminal Court has sat during the week. There were but three cases in the calendar, and only two of them were actually tried. Mr. S.S.   Rogers, an attorney who absconded from Wollongong, was indited for having ap- plied to his own use a sum of £500, en- trusted to him by a client for investment, and was acquitted. A nolle proseque was, therefore, entered as to another in- dictment against him. The prisoners of   Darlinghurst Gaol, who murderously as-   saulted the warder, Wallace, namely - Clifford, English, Brown, Thornton, and L...

To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

To the Editor of the Bulletin. Sir, - In your last issue, I notice a letter signed "Pro bono Publico," some   of the statements of which are so very novel that I cannot allow them to pass without comment. He first informs us that Little Quay- street is "the leading thoroughfare of the town." What ground he has for this assertion I cannot imagine. Does the fact of half-a-dozen persons opening shops   in a lane constitute it a " leading     thoroughfare?" I fancy not. As to its being a "a sad drawback to thc town,"   I very much doubt ; and if " persons who are unfortunate enough to have pro- perty there," become great losers, it is I imagine their own look out, as whatever buildings they have erected there have been put up for their own convenience,   and with a knowledge that that portion   of their land had a frontage to a twenty feet base only.   lt would take up too much of you...

Correspondence. [The Editor will not be responsible for the sentiments of Correspondents.] To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

Correspondence.   [The Editor will not be responsible for the sentiments of Correspondants.] To the Editor of the Bulletin. Sir—You will, I trust, excuse me for my inquisitiveness, but being one of those   desirous that fairplay should be allowed   to all, and even to our worthy Aldermen, I think it highly essential that a full   report of the Municipal Council's meet- ings should be given in your paper, as is       the case in other places.   It would be interesting to ratepayers, and forsooth at the forthcoming election   it would be useful to know the proceed- ings of the Corporation, that they may be able to accord to each Alderman his due either of praise or ignominy. I know that these meetings are public, but at the same time it is not always con- venient for persons interested to attend. Apologising for intruding on your valuable space, I am, &c., FAIRP...

THE CORPORATION. To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

THE CORPORATION.   To the Editor of the Bulletin. SIB,-By your last issue I perceive that the Corporation have gone to the swamps of which they seem so fond, for an advocate against the numerous attacks which have been lately made on them, and which they have so well deserved. " Will-o'-the-Wisp " appears to have tried his best to help them further into the mud. In the first place he " just hints " that we " have not yet given thc Corporation time to complete one single undertaking;'' and informs the ratepayers "that £1000 goes but a very little way in properly   forming and macadamising a street." Pray, what single undertakings have the Cor-   poration tried to complete? or what   street have they tried to properly form,   let alone macadamise? Does he mean to "hint" that the Corporation have spent £1000 in the great improvements they have made ? He appears to be deep in Corporation secrets, for he further informs us ...

BIRD AND WORMALUS REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

BIRD AND WORMALD'S REPORT WE have to notice a great improvement in the horse market this week, the de-   mand being much in excess of the sup-   ply. This may be accounted for through   the sudden requirement for the expedi-   tion in search of Mr. Burke. Every   horse brought to market in anything like     condition has been eagerly bought up.   Many new arrivals per Sydney steamer have been disappointed, and   have been obliged to remain in town in   consequence of the scarcity of good   roadsters.   Quotations are, if anything, a shade   higher ; and, as we stated in our report   of last week, week would advise holders to   take advantage of present market prices -   having advice of several mobs from New   England. Working bullocks and store cattle are inquired ...

The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 24,1862. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 24, 1861. THE exploration of the vast interior of the continent of Australia, and the dis- covery of fertile country, mineral wealth, and other valuable resources, are of great importance to these colonies, and eminently calculated to promote their material prosperity and advancement. The work of settlement has as yet scarcely extended beyond the borders of this extensive island continent, and no doubt can be entertained that persevering and well-directed efforts to complete the exploration of the Interior will be amply rewarded. Hitherto South Australia has taken the lead in this work. With regard to the numerous expeditions which have been sent out by the Government of that colony, although few very startling dis- coveries have been made by them, enough has been done to compensate for the out- lay, and to encourage them to prosecute the work with renewed vigour, and to go on until the whole of the territory with- in the boundaries of...

FASHIONS FOR JUNE. (From Le Follet.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

FASHIONS FOR JUNE. (From Le Follet.)   The light and gauuze-like materials which have been prepared for summer weather     are in great demand now. Grenadines, Chamberry gauzes, organdis, and painted muslins, form charming toilettes for hot days. However, the material most a la     mode for negligee dresses is, decidedly, alpaca, with a pattern of small flowers over it. For this kind of dress, there are also other materials, such as poils de chevre, or thin taffetas, grisailles, and checked or brocaded. The make often   used for these is the high body, called   Empress- the body and skirt being without seam in front, and sleeves with reverse monsquetaires. They are some- times trimmed up the front breadths, and the seams of the body, with rosettes or silk, or, better still, with rosettes, or bows or passementerie, of which there is al- ways a very great variety. When these toilettes of which w...

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA. EVACUATION OF HARPURS FERRY BY THE SOUTHERN FORCES— REPULSE OF THE FEDERAL TROOPS NEAR FORT MUNRO. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 24 August 1861

THE CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA.   EVACUATION OF HARPER'S FERRY BY THE SOUTHERN FORCES.-RE-   PULSE OF THE FEDERAL TROOPS NEAR FORT MUNRO.   American news to the l5th June has been received. The latest intelligence is of a more im- portant character than any that has yet been received since the commencement of the war.     The Southern forces have, it appears,   evacuated Harper' s Ferry in great haste,   after destroying all the Government pro-   perty they could, and carrying away with   them what was portable. They at-     tempted, it is said, to break down the   railway bridge, but failed, whether   through want of proper material, or be- cause the Northern forces were following closely in the retreat, is not reported. This retreat relieves the City of Wash- ington from the danger ot attack on that side. The Southern tr...
