We would remind the ratepayers of Rockhampton, that the election of two aldermen for the Municipal Council, to fill the places of Aldermen M'KELLIGETT and STEVENS, who retire by roation, will take place on Tuesday next. The polling will commence at nine o'clock in the morning, and close at four in the evening. It is to be hoped that the ratepayers, in recording their votes, will not forget   that business men, of integrity and ex- perience, are wanted in the Council, in order that the income of the munici- pality may not be frittered away in bun-     gling and mismanagement. The great works now shout to be commenced will require every available shilling to be judiciously expended, or a debt of un- comfortable dimensions, with an exhaust- ing annual charge upon the Municipality in the shape of interes, will soon accu- mulate.

NOMINATION OF ALDERMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 15 February 1862

NOMINATION OF ALDERMAN A MEETING of ratepayers was held at the Court house on Tuesday last for the   nomination of aldermen in the room of   Mr. R. M'Kelligett and Mr. John Ste- vens, who retire by rotation. Mr. Mansfield, Mayor, pro. tem., said, that in pursuance of notice the meeting had been adjourned to this day in order to obtain an addition of three to the number of aldermen. The Government had not replied to their letter. He   thought they were bound in courtesy to   the Government to defer the election of the additional three, although he had no doubt they could legally elect them. He then called on the electors to nomi- nate their candidates. Mr. L. Young said he need not say   much in proposing Mr. L. J. Bird as a candidate. Mr. Bird was well known to all. He was a man of ability and honest intentions, and his interests were   centralised in the town. Mr. W. James seconded the nomina- tion of Mr. Bird. Captai...

BRISBANE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT] TUSDAY MORNING,Feb.4. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 15 February 1862

BRISBANE. [From our own correspondent.]   Tuesday Morning, Feb. 4. This is the day "big with the fate" of       the would-be patron saint of Warwick.   The "tug of war " culminates this day   between the contending parties for the representative of the Warwick electorate,   and men of evenly-balanced minds are writing to hear " who's who " before they throw up their caps in praise of either. If prognostications be of any value, then Jones stands the best chance. At the nomination on Friday last, only three hands were held up for Gore, while everybody seemed to show up for Jones. The latter was proposed by Captain Daveney, of Canning Downs, and O'Sul- livan was also brought forward as a can- didate, but the latter seems to have been a mere ruse, as Pat resigned after he had had a chance of walking into his dear friend the " Saint," as he facetiously terms poor old Gore. The course taken by the ...

To the Editor of the Bulletin. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser — 15 February 1862

To the Editor of the Bulletin. Sir.- Since my return to Rockhamp ton, I have seen with great surprise a paragraph in your paper as follows : "Captain McEwen states that when he was going into Broad Sound he encoun- tered one of the heaviest easterly gales he has ever experienced along the coast. He reports having gone to the assistance of the Coquette in Broad Sound, where she lay in a very exposed position, with a signal of distress flying. Owing to the assistance of the Ben Bolt in landing the   passengers the Coquette was enabled to get to sea." Now, Sir, as Captain of the Coquette, I give the most unqualified denial to those statements, and declare them to be not only totally false, but without the slightest foundation. The facts of the case are these. On Saturday, the 28th ult, we were passed     by the Ben Bolt at the entrance to Thirsty Sound - which is the proper channel into Broad Sound - but Captain McEwen preferring to run to 250 mil...
