Cooktown. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

Cooktown, By the &.& Wonga Wonga. we have no Cooktown papers, but die following intelli gence respecting the Palmer is supplied by the Cooktown correspondent of the C. B. Ezprett writing on 16th March -.— The tine weather of the lost feu days would appear to iprfiffntp that the wet season of 1875 ia a thing of the past ; and every day now witnesses the departure of numerous paitieB of diggers and long stringa'o heavily-laden pad? horses e*. remit from the town to the diggings. The pubuc-houseB are steadily disgorging the crowd of gold-seekers who for many weeks past have been the life and eool of the respec tive establishments ; and of die diggers' tente now located at Mount Cook and other camps, within a few miles of Cooktown, very few indeed will be left a fortnight hence should the present fine weather continue. Busy preparation is the order of the day, and while the majority composmg the exodus are pro vided with horses or mules, not a few are carrying their swag...

Eastern News. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

Eastern Kern. j Fsoh the fUmilr OUerver (.Singapore) of March I and ?* we extract the following :— An outbreak has occurred among tile Chinese prisoners in the gaol at Singapore, Anrmg which die Superintendent, Mr. Dent, ' received a stab from a 'nibong' and a blov from an axe, which caused hiB death. The I rioters were fired upon, and several killed I before the outbreak was suppressed. At an inquest held on the 26th February, the coroner's jury returned a verdict of wilful murder against thirteen Chinamen named, together with divers other persons at present to the jury unknown- The following rider to the verdict was added :— 'The jury feel it to be their duty to record their unanimous opinion, tnat had it not been for tin; great lack of supervision exercised over the prisoners while at work in the work shops, and the want of a proper system of 'searching their persons when they left off work, whereby they were enabled to arm themselves with a variety of deadly weapons, and carry t...

Mail Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

Hail Extracts. That the accession of Alfonso the Twelfth to the Throne upon which Paynira Moors and enlightened Spaniards ' ? not to mention one or two Frenchmen of note — have sat, would be recognised in course of time, always providing lhaX some enthusiastic patriot did not put an end to the new monarch's career with a nistol-shot. was fairiv to be expected. Thus it is that an autograph letter ftom the Emperor of Russia to the youthful King creates no surprise, and an intervieir between Mr. Layard. tbe British Minister, and Senor de Castetla, in which Ae former congratulates the I latter on the conservation of Monarchial I principles, are looked upon as very right and proper proceedings. On the whote. all goes swimmingly for the new poten tate. Even the Swiss Federal Cooncil has acknowledged him, and expressed a wish for peace between the two countries, as if, by-the-bye, irar could possibly ensue: and despite Prince Bismark's ; demands, the German Government has already pot itsel...

I Work, like a pood young man, is praised by every one and liked by none. It is die noblest thing that man can do, and may be bought at so much die hour, or the yard, or die job. Ken who have mines buy it by die hour, men who make roads or books buy it by tbe yard, and the government buy it by die job When the mine* are unwhole some die men who work are paid more than usual : when tie roads run through wet ground, an additional price is given ; and when die job is particularly dirty, die government don't count die money at all, but sweep it out into the gutter tor their servants to pick up.

MARK TWAIN ON LETTER WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

It&fiE TWAIN OH LETrEB WRITING. I suppose, that if there is one thing in the world more baleful than another to all of us, it is to have to write a letter. A private letter especially. And business lettecs, to my jAinlrino^ are very little pteasanter. Nearly all tbe enjoyment is taken out of every letter I get by the reflection that it most be answered. And I do not dread tbe affliction of writing those answers, that often my first and gladdest impulse is to born my mail before it is opened. For ten yean I never felt that sort of dread at aU, because I was moving about constantly, from city to city, from State to State, and from country to country, and so I could leave all letters nn answered if I chose, and tbe writers of them would naturally suppose that I .had. changed my post-office and missed fepceiring my correspondence. j^But I am 'cornered 'now. I cannot fjae that form of deception any more. I am anchored, and letters of all kinds ' come straight to me with deadly pr...

Blackall. "A TRAVELLER" sends us the following letter,       under date March 12, 1875 : — As mails are delayed, and travelling is diffi- cult in consequence of floods and other causes, it has occurred to me that perhaps a few lines anent the state of the country and matters in general might not be unacceptable to you. It will scarcely be necessary to inform you that no mails for the western country, via the Springsure route, have been received for nearly a fortnight, and I suppose all the corresponding down mails have not been delivered in Rock- hampton either. These delaysare vexatious, and productive of much confusion in business matters. I am informed that the telegraph has been considerably damaged also, and that the station-master at Tambo has made one or two trips to Charleville with telegrams rather than keep them waiting in his office. It will be a great convenience when the telegraph wire is extended from Charieville to Tambo, and the...
