ASIATIC LAHOUB.-A writer in a recent number of tbe Westminster Review hos eome remarks beaning on tbis question of cheap labour and the employment of inferior (aces well worth consideration. He eaye: "If sro use the expression 'cheap labour,' the mind is naturally led to suppose that this too is an advantage to a country. There can sot be a greater mistake i labour is cheap when the labourer receives little to reward him for Us toil, and what diminiBhes'tho comforts of the great majority of the people, ought not to be considered as a benefit to the country. Yet 8 great deal of reasoning on the subject of emigration is based on tho assumption that cheap labour ia a benefit. Sven so judicious and unprejudiced a writer as Hr. Herman Merivale recommends the English Government to encourage the emigration of free labourers into Demerura sad lYinadad, on the ground that it would < bring down the enormous rate of wages by fair competition.' Kow, wages are high in Demorara because...

THE EUROPEAN ASSURANCE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 18 April 1872

THE EüßOPEAN ASSURANCE SOCIETY. THE latest scene of the " strange, event- ful history " of the European was enacted on the 15th of last month. An applica- tion was made to Vice-Chancellor Matins on behalf of the ex-directors of that society, that they should bo at liberty to affix the society's seal (at present under the safe keeping of the provisional liqui- dators) to a bill in Parliament which they intended to promote during the ensuing session, with the object of settlioï its affairs. The motion was opposed on the part of tho provisional liquidators on the ground that they had also prepared a bili with a like purpose, 'and that if two bills wore presented, both bearing tho sanction of tho society's seal, it would be most injurious to tho chance of either succeeding. After a .very sharp and rather protracted con- test, during which no slight amount of recrimination passed between the parties the vice-Chancellor said ho could not allow opposition to be made by tho pro- visional li...

Parliament met on the 6th instant- The^ Speech was read bj the Lord Chancellor. It ia, of courir, siren elsewhere, and will be found nearly without Interest. The recovery of the Prince of .Wales and the intended thanksgiving naturally led the way, and somewhat early came reference to the disbonourof tbe name of the British Empire by slave-trading practices at the antipodes. We have mentioned the refer- ences to America. It will be seen that o variety of bills were promised, the Ballot Bill. Benong them, and several of them have been already introduced. The debates have been very quiet, with sn important exoeption. The Speaker, Mr. Denison, hos resigned, . and is Lord Ossington, and tbe Hon. Henry Brand,.heir presumptive to the ancient peerage pf Deere, has been elected to the chair without onbo sit ion. He was long a popular Liberal whip.

It is, of course, utterly impossible for England to concede the right of Amerioa to enter into tbe " indirect claims."

In the discussions in Parlia i ment (of whoso meeting we shall presently speak) tho Premier declared there could bo but ; one interpretation of the treaty, namely, tbat which would exclude the claims in question, and ! although ho has in some degree modified the un* qualified language which he at first used, and which was perhaps unwise, because, dispatched by telegraph in a naked form, it was eure to irritate the Americans, he has not really retracted his position.

[ AN indication of tho progress of Mackay viii bo found in tho enlargement of tbe Mercury to tho double-demy size. This is a wise «tcp on the part of the proprietor, and we have no doubt that it will be amply justified by the increased support given to the paper by the public. We observe in the Mercury's municipal report that the Government have consented to advance to the Mackay Council the «um of £1200 out of the fand available for loans to municipalities. THE Courier of Thursday laBt, contains the following paragraph :-" The Boyal Railway Commission held a meeting yesterday, and adopted a draft report, which had been drawn up by its chairman, Mr. john Scott, M.Ii.A.

In other words, he has boen probably talking over Queensland nffnirs with Mr. Sedgwick Cowpen and treats the Australian world with the follow- ing sage observations :-" Mr. Sedgwick Cowper has, I understand, received communications from the proposed new colony of Albertland upon two very important matters, to which the colonists desire to call attention, and, if p ossible, to boro them remedied. The Sorthern Argus, which has long boen distinguished for its ability, seems anxious that tho postal communication should be improved, and the very natural question is asked, Why could there not be a branch line through tho Towes' Straits? One thing is certain-if the northern colony wishes to progress, the people must push on, for thc competition for ...

A GEEMAN newspaper direotory which hu just been published gires a very satisfactory account of the progress of journalism in the last ten years. What is now called the German empire possessed, et the beginning of that period, only 1131 daily papers, while now the number has risen to 1743. The directory gives the following figures as representing the daily papers of various countries :-Germany 1743, Auttro-Hungary 268, Switzerland 252, France 392, Belgium 196, the. Netherlands 174, the United Kingdom 1263, Denmark 96, Sweden and Norway 184, Russia, 160, Italy 333, Spain 91, Portugal 26, the United States 622, the rest of America 131, Asia, G7, Africa 602, Australis 75. We rather doubt if the figures stated for non-continental countries are etriotly correct; if they are, Germany has indeed taken tho lead by a great distance. Speaking of the progress of German journalism, the publica- tion remarks that the press has developed most rapidly and most successfully when neither caution mone...

On Tuesday morning the huge boiler passed through Clermont, much to the edifica- tion of the idlers, who gazed in some surprise at its enormous bulk. For some time preparations have been made to receive the monster in his permanent bed, and many of the necessary pre- liminaries are now completed. In the course of a week or two the ehsft will be actually com- menced,-that is it will be worked with the help of machinery, a commencement by hand end windlass having already been made.
