IRON CLAD SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 January 1876

IBON GLAD SHIPS. I Mb. Reed, late constructor of the British Navy, speaking on arrooar for ships, says :— "The abandonment c£ armour is sdvttcated upon the ground that it is incapable of resist ing tie heavy projectiles that can now be fired from naval gnn& and is, therefore, now of no more valoe than the personal ar mour of the soldier which was thrown aside wben the peneirating power ot gunpowder was brought into play. X deny boti the ss samption and the analogy. I main fain that even the armoar which we have now afloat is impen^bie to fxTsting naval guns under the ordinary conditions of sea service. I further maintain that the armour which is now afloat has by no means attained or even approached the thickness and weight which it is perfectly practicable to carry on good sea going stiip; of not immoderate dimensions, and I deoy the analogy between the anmrar of a soldier and tie armour of a ship. While the soldier's armour is absolutely and unalter ably limited to the wei...

SCHOOL BOARDING HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 January 1876

SCHOOL BOARDING- HOTJ5ES. | The common opinion seems to be that the clause providing for- theesteblisihment of bbaxding houses in connection -with the com mon school system is scaicelyneedful, or,if needful, that it can fcanlly.be made to work. Let us review, these two positions. An in creasing multitude of small schools is fast overspreading the country. The average cost of these, including teachers* houses, may l>e roughly set down at about £300. The teachers' income will averaga £200 a yearfor each school, and the attendance at them may perhaps be sixty children. Reckoning cost of school supplies, dilapidation, interest of original outlay, Ac., each child in fair atten dance will cost the country about £3 10s. a year. This is an . alarming feet, -especially as the tendency of Ifcte has been to establish a new school wherever sufficient clamour for its erection has been made. . In addition to this, j the supply of teachers of any sort is limited,1 and of able men and -women, fa...

DANGER OF WAR. (From the Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 January 1876

DANGER OP WAR. (From ike Courier.) By the mail news we learn that England was much nearer being involved in a great war seven weeks ago than we in these colonies had any idea of, and that nothing but the promptitude with which the Imperial Government showed that it was quite prepared to accept the respon sibilities of the situation averted the outbreak of hostilities. The actual position < >? affairs was, indeed, an excellent exemplification of the truth of the good old maxim, "Si ms pacem, para bdlum." Ever since the close of the Franco German war Russia has looked upon the last obstacle to her reversionary inheritance of the Turkish Empire as completely removed. The first thing she did was to tear up the Paris treaty of 1856, which had previously restrained her. from converting the Black Sea into a Russian lake. Then she proceeded, it is believed, to urge upon th«"Sultan to file his schedule ; and, in the next place, she seems to have entered into some kind of arrang...

COOKTOWN. (From the Brisbane Courier.) January 15. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 29 January 1876

COOKTOWN. (From, (he Brisbane Oowrier.) January 15. The weather continues showery, and in con sequence water and grabs have become more plentiful—grass especially is now abundant in the suburbs and to a considerable distance in land. Though visited by those refreshing showers, yet at no time since the founding of Cooktown has the public health been so bad as during the past fortnight. Everyone whom you meet abroad is ill, whilst a fourth of the people are too helplessly ill to leave their houses. The hardiest veterans—those who through long years past have braved all the worst dangers of this northern clime—are succumbing to this un healthful time. The police station is literally a fever ward for its hapless inmates, -whose hitherto invulnerable inspector (Clhosey) is also prostrated—it was at -one tune thought .beyond hope of recovery. The public servants—the Police Magistrate, the Sub-collector of Customs, and the Inspector of Brands have been tempo rarily, afflicted. The Telegrap...
