WALLSEND SCHOOL OF ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 16 May 1874
WALLB5E~D SCHOOL OF ARTS. The debating class in connection with the above institution will again-be started on Wednesday evening next, when the Tinistry, viz., Messrs. Ross, Ituslitori, McGee, and 5Melville, will introduce for their first debate the following subject:--" Is the. probable liberation of Gardiner, the bushranger, justiinble,"--the ministry taking the negative. This is, we think, a very good subject, considering that the remission of the notorious busbranger's sentence is now being agitated so much in Sydney through the press and by petitions." We hope there will be a good attendance of members and the pub lic also. On debate evenings all are admitted, and judging from past debates held in the institution, we feel certain that a pleasant evening will be passed.
