PROVINCIAL NEWS. ROCKHAMPTON. October 2. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 13 October 1863
pkotinoial :n-ews. KOCKHAMPTON. (feom odd special cobuespokdekt.) October 2. I cannot better initiate this ' Special Cor respondence' from Rockhampton than hv presenting yon with a brief precis of tlfc state of political opinion in the rising North, particularly as there seems to exist in the South a marvellous misconception there anent. It will be deemed the more highly necessary to do this at starting, when you consider that much of the after correspond ence will have much fpcoial reference to key, as it were, to unlock the mystery. To proceed, then : the public mind of the South errs greatly in confounding mere effervescences of popular impatience with the sober convictions of the great mass of thinking men is the North. The deep in dignation of this portion of the colony at the Ipswich railway scheme does not spring from a hostility to a railway system in Queensland, nor to an initiation of such a scheme in the longer settled and more popu lous districtM, bnt, as is the general ...

Mr. Given was unanimously chosen to fill that com mission. Corporal Imrie was promoted to be second lieutenant, and Mr. B. Davidson was appointed corporal, vice Imrie, pro moted.

A Land Sale will take place at the Court House hero next Wednesday. The land set np lies beyond the Boman Catholic Church. The Catholic body' here were anxious to procure certain allotments imme diately in the rear of the church, in order to erect thereon an orphanage and convent.

The North Australian. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 13 October 1863
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13. 1863. It is almost a pity that the Subdivision of Tji|iiia Sill did not pass, although it in some degree partook of the Bhoirt comlngs of its illnstripus arfthor. The rage for subdivision a.ppes$B to be' ex tending, and little plots of ground. T.'WiXjiSBTitrtnFii ii a ? i, .hi i ii like. Gontemporaneonsly with this evil is the continuous erection in our principal thoroughfares of every kind of jim-crack wooden shanty, for public houses, fiap shops, for lodging houses — for everj*pO8sibte purpose. Some are disguised under a thin covering of ce ment, and assume the aspect of an orna mental stone front, until a glance round the comer discloses the weather-boards, whioh there it was not thought neces sary to hide. Sometimes the mould ings, projections, and decorations which are applicable in substantial structures are imitated in wood with as much success as bad material, worse taste, and indifferent execution will admit. But, go where you will, what with building s...
