The Comet Township. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

The Comet Township. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] THE Christmas Race Meeting held here on Boxing Day was comparatively successful, although the number of nominations were fewer than was anticipated. The weather was very hot, causing a small attendance of pedestrians; no doubt a great many people   considered the distance (three miles) too far for a pleasant walk when old Sol was at his fiercest. The course was in very fair racing order. A very heavy shower, which had fallen on Christmas Eve, had done little injury beyond tumbling over a couple of booths and     leaving two or three chains of the course lightly heavy. The meeting passed over without   serious disturbance. Senior-constable Holmes with two assistants succeeded in keeping all those of a bellicose disposition in due order and subjection, and also rendered very valuable assistance in keeping stragglers off the course, thus preventing any accident from   marr...

New [?] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

New Guinea, The following interesting letter appears in the columns of the Cooktown Herld:—     I have just returned from New Guinea, and as many of your readers are interested in that terra incognita the following may be of interest. Our mission steamer, the Ellengowan, has returned from Sydney, after a thorough overhauling; a new boiler has been put in, and we may hope to have good service from her again in opening up, the coast of the south-part of New Guinea. On account of   the unhealthiness of Port Moresby and district we have long been desirous of opening up, new ground further to the south-east. This has been effected. A new mission station has been formed on the East Cape overlooking Milne Bay, and also one on Stacey Island (the South Cape of the charts). A teacher has also been placed at Teste Island. In our recent voyage our vessel was crowded day   after day with natives but in no case was any hostility displayed by the...

Correspondence. THE COMET—SPRINGSURE ROAD. TO THE [?] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

Correspondence. THE COMET-SPRINGSURE ROAD.   TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN SIR,—I feel it a duty incumbent on me to publicly express my opinion on the utter waste of public money now being expended on the road from the Comet terminus to Springsure, and I am sure that any impartial person knowing anything of bush roads will fully en- dorse my opinions. I have only been along the road for about twelve miles, starting from the Comet, and am convinced that this portion of it is thoroughy impracticable for loaded drays, and in wet weather even for horsemen, as a portion of it passes over sand ridges, which are so heavy that it is labour for a horse to travel in dry weather, and can only be made practicable by a large expenditure of public money. Another portion is over flooded country, with a heavy rush of water, on which ordinary logging would not stand. What the remainder of the road may be I cannot say, but this I know, that the first twelve miles from the Comet is enough...

THE MARSUPIALS DESTRUCTION ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

THE MARSUPIALS DESTRUCTION ACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BULLETIN.   SIR,—At one of your earliest correspondents on the Marsupial Pest, will you grant me space to ofter a few remarks on the Marsupial Destruction Bill which has recently become law, and on the probable result of the working of the Bill ? I candidly admit the difficulties that surround the subject, owing to the great difference of opinion existing amongst prac- tical men as to the best method of meeting the evil, many being of opinion that the evil will cure itself by disease or drought carrying off the animals in large numbers ; others hold that fixity of tenure for such a period as would warrant lessees in the expenditure of sufficient capital to fence in the good country is the only certain way ; whilst the greater number are of opinion that destroying them is the perfect cure. This latter method having been adopted, I ask in all common justice how ? that the expense of so doing is to be ? by the few who ar...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, January 1. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. ADELAIDE, January 1. At a meeting of Burra, Mine proprietor, the   Directors have been authorised to sell all the real Estate belonging to the Association. DURING the month of December one mail was despatched from this port for England via Torres Straits, and there were two arrivals. The postal returns show the following par- ticulars : Despatched—1413 letters, 25 packets, and 1253 newspapers. Received—2412 letters, 227 packets, and 4412 newspapers. As a hint to bathers, we may mention that a shark about five feet in length was captured in the river yesterday morning. It was observed in company with several other sharks disporting itself near the James Pa terson s.s. A line with a well baited hook having been cast, he voraciously made for it, and was immediately hooked and hauled on board.   The presence of these undesirable monsters is attributed to the salt state of the water, and   bathers will do well to be on the watch whi...

VICTORIA. MELBOURNE, January 3.   Joe Thompson, the bookmaker, is stated to   have lost £5000 over the New Year's Races. The Champion Race was run in eight seconds' faster time than any previous per-   formance. Jackson, who made a balloon ascent at Ballarat yesternight, was completely success- ful. The balloon rose to a height of two-and- a-half miles above the earth, and travelled a distance of fifteen miles. The Indian Famine Relief Fund has closed   with a total subscribed amounting to £28,240. lt is stated that there is a strong feeling in the country electorates against any compro- mise on the payment of members question.

THE SOUTHERN COLONIES. [REUTER'S TELEGRAMS.] NEW SOUTH WALES. SYDNEY, January 3. An expedition is being organised to prospect   for gold in New Guinea. A vessel belonging to this port leaves for Papua early in February, with the members of the expedition and nine months' supplies.

Gordon has offered a dona- tion of £1000 towards the building fund of the Young Men's Christian Association, condi- tionally on nine others contributing an equal donation. An anonymous gentleman, through the Rev. Mr. Piddington (Wesleyan), has made a similar offer. All the new Ministers of the Crown have been re-elected.

The Morning Bulletin. ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

The Morning Bulletin ROCKHAMPTON. FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1878. PHILOSOPHICAL politicians are fond of reiterating that representative govern- ment is on its trial, that party govern- ment is becoming a thing of the past, and that the inevitable tendency of political morals under universal suffrage is of a retrograde character. There is some truth in all this, but it is not the whole truth. In the Australian Colonies time has not been allowed for the proper working of the experimental constitu- tions severally conferred upon them within the past quarter of a century. It is perfectly natural that each colony having its own distinctive system all should not work well alike, and that all should be found to need more or less amendment. In each colony con- stitutional reform has been a standing cry with one section of its politicians. In Victoria it is a manifestly popular demand, and one which a very large majority of the public men of that colony deem necessary. But reform has hitherto been ...

Northern Mail News. WILD BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Bulletin — 4 January 1878

Northern Mail News. WILD BLACKS.   SHILSON, the carrier, who it will be remem- bered lost the run of seven fine horses at the Mitchell, through the harassing attacks of the blacks, has again suffered a dreadful loss from their raids—this time near Mr. Fraser's Camp, on the Port Douglas road. Twelve of his team are missing, and as the remains of nearly half that number have been found, he has only too good reason to suppose the others have been driven before the niggers, who are literally swanning in that district, to be killed at their convenience. Shilson rushed several mobs of them he came across when hunting for his cattle, but being unarmed he was unable to take the retribution he was entitled to. On his return to pick up a saddle horse which he had passed only half an hour previously, six spears were sticking in the poor brute, and it died the same night. Out of two fine teams—through death and dispersion—Shilson has but ten horses left, and unfortunately the pick ...
