ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 5 November 1863

s- ? BOCKHAHPTOr*. Br the Qneen. steamer, we have files from Bockhampton to the 29th ultimo. From the Peak Downs no later intelligence had been received than was brought to Brisbane by the previous mail from the North. There is, however, in the Bockhampton journals evidence of a decline in the excitement which lately prevailed in relation to the new gold-field*. The general news is not of much interest. The people of Gladstone had received a reply to tbe petition which they addressed to his Excellency the Governor, praying his interference to prevent the carrying out nf the Ipiwich and Downs Bailway. The reply is not satisfactory. Commenting on its composition the Northern Argot writes : — This is. aa the arch-critic Gilford used to say of literary performances which were intolerably bad. but or which tenderness for tbe feelings of the performers induced him to soften the condemnation—' This is very pretty— very pretty indeed ;' but as Gifford implied in similar productions, there i...

POUT DEKISOK From the Bockiiampfon JSnJldin we ex tract the following intelligence, furnished by the Bowen correspondent of that jour nal :— The result of the municipal election for Botren lias been a surprise to many thinking minds. Mr. Francis Clark has the honor of being Mayor. It is necessary, however, to state that he was invited by a requisition handed in from.

If the Government do not want, for political purposes, to mass the population down in tbe south, let tbem show they -do not, -TOwr tiara It in '(ben power to fertilize tbe whole colony with human industry. They have been largely ssceenfal in accomplishing this object in the districts from which they derive their politi cal influence.

He again stated his anviflingness, and, indeed, . utter inability, to fortell either the extent or richness of the field hebeiievu he has discovered. - Under these circumstance* no one was willing to pay anything on the chance of its being good.
