A TELEGRAPH BOUND THE GLOBE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
A TELEGRAPH BOUND THE GLOBE. THE Daily Sews says:-The rapid development of submarine telegraphy is one of the chief marvels of our age. Wben we remember that only twenty years hare elipsed eince the first experimental cable was laid across tbe English Channel, we shall better realise the extraordinary fact that the con- struction of a line between the American coast end the Empire of Japan is tbe only thing needed to complete the telegraphic circle of the globe. "The missing link" in this splendid chain of intercommunication is about to be supplied by Mr. Cyrus Field, of Atlantic Cable celebrity, who has projected a line from Victoria, the capital of Vancouver's Island, to Hakodadi, in Japau, and from thence to the Kunian naval station on the coast of Asia, where, across the steppes of Siberia, the telegraphic wire penetrates to St. Petersburgh, and is united with every part of the great European system. This new line, the estimated length of which is 4370 nautical miles, will touch...
TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION WITH EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
TELEGRAPHIC COMMUNICATION WITH EUROPE. -: Is an article published on the 11th - '? December,the South Australian Register , «ya: "The nnesrtainty that «lists as to the »position of affairs in connection with the Nor- thern Sslegraph, enhanced as it is by ths unsatisfactory assurance from official sources tbst the Jins cannot by any possibility be com fpleted anta niter the end of the yeer, gives Mealier importance to the question of our liabilities and right* ander the contract to trmeh we hazardously, perhaps foolishly, became parties." übe writer goes on lo point out «hat tiie .right« and liablitie« of 8outh i AusfxaTis are. He remarks: " The fourth article of the contract Mods the 1 Government by the 81st December, 1871, to construct, complete, and open for trafilo the land line between Port Darwin and Adelaide, making good communication with the company's cable . «t the one end and with the Victorian telegraph 11. system at the other, and thereafter maintaining .od working the w...

ETHERIDGE RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
ETHERIDGE RIVER. í oorrespondent of the Srltbane Courier, writag from Georgetown, Etheridge Biver, under date December 4, sends the following interesting information > The days here at generally hot at this time; the température, I should imagine, being .oorflely under 100 in the afternoons. Generally «fiery evening a storm sets in from the south or .outh-east, with plenty of thunder and lightning, .nd sometimes rain-this state of the elements being such as generally precedes and ushers in the wet season. At the junction of the Etheridge and Delaney, «lose to too township, are two trees bearing the "initials, in characters fifteen ¡nobes long, LK and llover E, with the Government broad arrow «rar each.

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. Sir,—Hearing that an absurd rumour is afloat in town about the scarcity of water at Emu Park, and that I had been in the habit of charging a shilling a bucket for the same, I trust you will give me an opportunity of denying any euch assertion, as it is calculated to do me a serious injury. A oertain townsman did pay a blackfellow a shilling for fetching a bucket of water from some considerable distance, but it is questionable whether it was superior to that to be obtained on the ground. It is well known to those who have visited the locality that two lagoons exist, one a quarter, the other half a mile from my place, from which an abundance of water may be obtained at any season of the year. In addition to which I have gone to great expense in sinking a well and am happy to say obtained good water. The well was only finished a few days before Christmas, consequently it had not sufficient time to settle. Above 200 persons were supplied fr...
MEDICAL ASPECTS OF TOBACCO SMOKING. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
MEDICAL A8PECTS OF TOBACCO 8MOKING. DE. B. B. GRAY, who describes himself as having long been a moderate Brooker, and watched the effect of the habit on himself and others, offers in the Food Journal what he believes to be the true answer to the question, " Is smoking injurious ?" First of all (he remarks) there must be an understanding about the quality of the tobacco to be smoked. Bad, t'.e, rank, quickly intoxicating, and prostrating tobacco (certain kinds of shag and cavendish, for instance), mnst always be injurious. So too with regard to quantity, even good tobacco smoked to excess will to a certainty be injurious to the smoker, sooner or later, in some way or another. Next, as to the smokers. There are people to whom any tobacco, however smoked, is simply poison, causing even in small doses vomiting, pallor, ard alarming prostra- tion. Such people i.ever get seasoned to its effects, even stier repeated trials; and if they are wiso they will for ever let it alone.., No one can...

The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
?¡)e IJocïijjamnjon ^uUctin AND CENTBAX QUEENSLAND ADVEBTISEB. SATURDAY, JANUARY 6, 1872. . I > I ? WBCteBmcam I il THE deadlock is now tbe local question of the day, but it is becoming stale, flat, and unprofitable. S'iroe new develop, ment is wanted to sustain public interest. There bas been enough of factious ob- struction, and eren PAUL Pnr dozes while politicians wrangle on points of order. In these circumstances we make no apology for directing attention to a subject of world-wide interest, namely, Telegraphic Communication between Australia and Europe. Elsewhere is published the latest information on thie important topic, but it may not be inadvisable to succinctly re-state here some factB connected with the history of the Anglo-Australian Telegraph. At first, it will be recollected, the British Company opened négociations with Queensland, and the Legislature of this colony, on the strength of the proposals made, authorised the extension of our line to the Gulf of Carpenta...
LOG-ROLLING. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 6 January 1872
LOG-BOLLING. THE following sketch of the manner in which the members of the Pennsylvania Legislature play into one another's hands gives a lively picture of the corruption prevailing in that great State. The writer, Colonel Francis Jordan, having been Secretary of the State for the last five years, has had the fullest opportunity for making himself ac- quainted witb every move of the game which be describes :-Our General Assembly (says the Secretary), aa all are aware, consista of thirty-three senators and one hundred members of the HOUBB. They convene annually at the State capital on the first Tuesday of January. Every member on an average brings with him, or has forwarded to him during the session by his constituents or othera, from fire to forty or more billa. These, as a faithful representa- tive, he is expected to pass, and at once sets himself about it to the exclusion of almost everything else. They are mis- cellaneous in character and merits, and on nearly every conceivable ...

IT was once said of a penunons money- j tendir thst he kept the trunk containing his eecuntie* near the head of Ins bed, and lay awake to hear them acumúlate interest. A WEABT TBAVEIXBB-A travelling marqtii-, in the cfiurse of the " grand tour," arrived at ' Berlin, weary of lionising. When he went to J bed, at the close of hu first day's residence, he eiclaimed " Thank heaven, I bave come to . place where there is nothing worth seeing." I £16 TO EsoLMTD.-One of the most striking announcements we (Timet of India)) have «ern for some time appeara in our advertising columns this morning, where it is notified that "the magnificent first-class full-powor iron steamship ' European' will carry passengers from Bombay to Liverpool, via the 8uez Canal, for 150 rupees!" This completely puta into the shade everything that has hitherto been offered in the way of a cheap and speedy passage home, snd one feels almost inclined to doubt whether it can be done for the monev, so as to leave the neoes...
