AlDtElCi.-New Tori, January 6.-Jamel Fisk, jun., wu snot twice in the breast by Edward Stokes at the Grand Central Hotel, at twenty minute! past 4 o'clock this afternoon. The affair took place in the vestibule. Fisk waa assisted to a chair. It is thought he can- not surtiré. Stokes was arrested, and conveyed to the Fifteenth Precinct Station House. Fisk had just alighted from bis carriage and entered the hotel, when he was shot.-Chicago, January 6, 8 p.m.-Private despatches received here within an hour, átate that Jamei Fisk is dead. Itis probable that Stokes was in an excited state of mind, camed by the proceedings at Yorkville, where he was a witness to-day in the Mansfield libel suit. For some time he is said to hare been in a desperate state, of mind, evidently caused by the slowness of the progress of the cases against Trisk in which he is concerned. In June last, an award of £10,000 was made in favour of Stokes, in settlement of a long claim . be had against Fisk. With this be...

PREVENTION OF BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 22 February 1872

' PREVENTION OP BUSH FIRES. MB. LOCKIIABT MOBTON'S exhibition of the model of his apparatus for prevent- ing bush fires has had the effect of io- ! ducing almost every person in town connected with the pastoral interest to inspect it, as it lies on the table of the strangers1 room in Scott's Hotel. The inventor has been frequently in attendance to explain its working, and his expositions on th.it head have been ! eagerly received. The trouble he has taken ia that respect being, like his open surrender of the fruit of hie ingenuity and perseverance in experi- ment, wholly gratuitous, it has perhaps been the more willingly acknowledged. Some have suggested that, in the interests of those engaged in pastoral pursuits, the idea should be subjected to a practical working test, and to thia end Kir. Morton has offered to superintend machine which shall be an enlargement of hie model, but he is scarcely prepared to construct it at his own cost. This hint is the more deserving of attention b...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 22 February 1872

COMMERCIAL. THE S. M. Herald, in its summary for England, thus reports on colonial j affairs : The encouraging aspect of almost everything connected with the trade and commerce of the colony, noticed in our summary per last over- land mail, is not leas satisfactory non than it was then. The yield of our gold-fields is increasing, money is plentiful, commercial credit remarkably sound, and the value of colonial products well sustained. Perhaps the only persons who have any reason to complain ore capitalists, who (ind a difficulty in obtaining lucrative investments. As a result, we find them devoting more interest to thc development of our mining deposits, a source of wealth which bas not hitherto reoeived thst amount of attention which its importance demanded. j

The Rockhampton Bulletin AND CENTRAL QUEENSLAND ADVERTISER. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1872. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 22 February 1872

«KD CENTBAX QUEENSLAND ADVEBTIBER. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 1872. IF we hara made rib reference in these columns to the libel action of HALLAM ». BUZACOTT, it was not because the j fear of tho law »as before our eyes. We had made certain strictures on a' matter of public interest, honestly and without malice, and we were prepared to abide tho issue. It is true that the libel law of thfs «olony is of an Algerine character, and that the publia writer performs his duty with the'sword of DAMOCLES suspended over his bead. At tjmeB a journalist is bound to speak out plainly, but he does so at his peril, A single mistake-a solitary expression which in the opinion of a jury might be held iu excess of his privilege as a public writer-may involve him in almost ruinous costB and charges. Comments upon public matters, to be timely and effective, must be made promptly ; and it generally happens that cases requiring to be delicately yet firmly handled do not admit of delay. It is quito'possible, th...
