Formatted Abstract/Summary
However much opinions may differ in general, most people are agreed on one point, viz., that every town should have its archives, records, or chronicles, preserved for the benefit of coming generations. Till now, there has been no history of Maryborough compiled ; and, in undertaking such, the author does so rather as a " labor of love " than with a view to profit. In no way can the multitude possess a thorough knowledge of the bygone past—with its strange events, its energetic and adventurous pioneers who won by hardihood and enterprise the land from the primitive savage tribes who ruled this favoured spot from long forgotten time— but through the medium of a work such as the present. " Advance, Maryborough " is a mere hackneyed sentiment, given as a toast at festive gatherings and social parties, but we have come to accept it as indicative of progress. 
Nevertheless, progress requires something more than afterdinner speeches and bumpers of wine to help it along; a
true put-your-shoulder-to-the-wheel action with every man (not one man only), doing his best for the general weal of the
community, is necessary. As may be expected, though much has been left unsaid herein, much has been recorded, and all errors and omissions will be remedied in the second edition of this work which it is projected to publish.
