TUESDAY. MAY 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 May 1875
Tuesday. May 4. In the Legislative Assembly, — Mr. Buchanan moved that any amended educa tion bill introduced will be unsatisfactory unless it provides for tbe extinction of Denominational schools, and that public education supported by the State should be entirely secular. He urged the necessity for a Parliamentary deliverance on this momentous subject, and hoped hon. members known to be favourable to secular education i would vote for the motion. He declared that from the absence of any teaching in history the - results of the Public school system of education j were that those taught under it were allowed to grow up in lamentable ignorance.. This defect was caused by a deference to sectarianism, also upholding sectarian colleges, which ought to be all done away with. The motion, not being seconded, lapsed. Mr. Buchanan moved for a select committee to inquire whether the Post Office authorities at Sydney delivered to the French Consul or other French Authorities a letter addressed...

IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 May 1875
IMMIGRATION. The Immigration question was brought before tho House last week by Mr. Piddington, who pro poses the establishment of an Immigration Board, and the grant of , a special sum of £300^000, with a monthly addition of £12,000, f or the purnoie1 of introducing free immigrants from England, a Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, in a ratio propor--'^3 tioned to their respective populations. The Qo-J vernment, without committing itself to tbe VMffr portion, consented to the motion that it shonldftB considered in committee. Mr. Parkes thought it would have been better to take the discussion on the principle first, and to leave the House to deal with the details in committee. The hour was late, however, and after but little debate, the motion that the resolutions should be considered in committee was carried. Mr Piddington de serves thanks for bringing this subject before the House in a way that implies a due sense of its' magnitude and importance. And now that we have both an overflowi...
No title [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 May 1875
An advertisement which appears in another column invites the people of Burrowa and its neighbourhood to meet at noon, on Tuesday next, to consider the dangerous state of the roads around the township, with a view to provide a remedy. As we stated in our last issue the bridges have been in a dangerous :_c*»*^jf«M-«» *'*T^nna -lima- . Tjjfl maTinC'*''** of the roads has been taken out of the hands of the Bench of Magistrates, and no public money, as far as we can hear, has - been ex pended in this neighbourhood for the last two years. We do not know who have been principally to blame in the matter, but of this we are quite certain tbat the inhabitants of this town have already suffered considerably in their trade by the frequent impossibility of gaining access to the township. Another winter is come, and if it bring its usual accompaniments of bog and flood, the town will be as effectually barred from all commu nication, as would be a fortress. We hope that for once the people will ex...
THE TAMMANY RING IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 May 1875
THE TAMMANY RING IN THE UNITED STATES. The New York correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald writes : — The forms of public plunder under free institu tions are apparently inexhaustible, and American ingenuity has by no means yet exhausted the possibilities of peculation. The whole world has nearci oi tne Tammany lung — ana scnooiooys in every land have been admonished by the fate of the poor wretch Tweed, who is now axpiating in parti-coloured dress in Blackwell's Island peni tentiary, tbe crime of being the most gigantic thief of modem times. But the past week has seen the exposure of a little clique who have probably stolen between them, in the past dozen years, half as much again as the old Tammany Ring ever did — say, some thirty millions. These are tlie gentlemen who compose what is known as the 'Canal Ring.' The secret of the commer cial prosperity of New York city is that half a century ago, the Legislature had the foresight and the patriotism to construct a system of wate...
THE NEUTRALITY OF THE COLONIES [Newspaper Article] — The Burrowa News — 8 May 1875
THE NEUTRALITY OF THE COLONIES The Melbourne Daily Telegraph writes as follows : — Sir Charles Duffy's idea of the ' neutrality' of the colony is revived again, but practical and aboveboavd politicians are never likely, we sus pect, to be turned far out of their way by this will o'-the-wisp. It would be very well to be neutral, but it seems to be forgotten that there are two parties to the bargain — England, and the great powers of Europe — and the great powers never consent to proclaim a country neutral unless they have something to gain b}' the transaction. France and Germany were both convenienced by recognising the neutrality of Belgium, and, as recent events have shown, both parties are pre pared to laugh at that neutrality the moment it suits them to do so. So with the neutrality of the Black Sea, England and France obtained it by force of arms, and they found as soon as Russia was strong again they would have to fight for it once more, and so the neutrality of the Black Sea v...
