The Mennonites. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875

The Uennonites. The London Spectator has an interest ing article on rhf» desire for emigration which has recently sprung up in Itassia, and which is giving some imMqnws to the Imperial authorities. On the one hand (says the flpffn/w) the Tartar tribes, whose home for cen turies has been in the valleys of the Crimea, are striking their tT**a*s and, as fast as their scanty mwrw wiD. permit, are ^T3w»»'i i '*y themselves and ^*^*T* pro petty to the protection and the shores of the Ottoman monarchy.

Of diese two migrations, the German is unquestionably the more important, and it is not to be wondered at that the Government of St...

The Pneumatic Sewage System. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875

The Pneumatic Sewage System. The water-carriage or water-closet system of removing the excreta of towns has no doubt advantages neither few nor unimportant over methods formerly in use ; but when brought fully i to operation, especially upon a large scale, ?£ & &nnd to be aceonunmed bv verv serious evils, 7be iZzmcdlses connected' wish the present system are not confined to London and the great towns. In mnch smaller com mnnitiesthe water and sewage questions are giving ground for serious embarrassment. Where the modem system of town drainage prevails, large artificial snpplififi of water nmst be provided to carry off the excreta by Obe sewers, while the same process destroys the natural supplies by pountingthe rivers and wells. On the continent, however, an efibrt is being made to grapple with the difficulty, and a plan bat beat intmdacei, and is being apiSy ex tended, which is boldly pnt forward as a com plete solution of the sewage problem.

CURRENT TOPICS. Rockhampton Chamber of Commerce. The Rocthamptbn Chamber of Com merce has completed its fast fear's ^vichnrp It started modestly, and its transactions have been marked by the same characteristic. The annual report of the Committee consequently does not boast of having accomplished any great performances. It does not even touch upon several mattjre which have come under consideration during the year, and on which the members of committee at least have acquired rnu^ »g-*fiil informa tion. They have also brought several questions of importance officially before die authorities, and. if with not much result, the fault lay not with the Com mittee, but with die Government- In the matter of river improvement the influence of the Chamber was un doubtedly salutary, and through their representations the member for the town was enabled to procure the distinct pledge of the Treasurer, given torn bis place in the House, that the navigation of the Fitzroy should have the best atte...

Grammar School for Girls. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 16 January 1875

Grammar School fbr Girls. 8 It appears to be definitely decided that the branch Grammar School for Girls shall be opened in Brisbane on the 1st February. We are glad to see, by a prospectus issued last week, that one or two whole some alterations of the original plan have been made. The qualification for admission of pupils has been raisea. and instrumental music is to be taught The admission test, as it now stands, reads as follows :— 'The sntmnuun age of ???i'l« J— n be twelve years ; and no girl shall be received' as apup3 who cannot read, and mate legibly ? and correctly £iuui oictebon ; and who iiiiihiI; mxk exanmlBS in simple ?«MH3«« and enb traction.' The qualification is, we think, still too low for the efficient working of the school,' wJtich should not trench upon the course of instruction imparted in the primary school, but start from the point where that stops. Possibly, however the Trustees have acted judiciously in fixing a low standard of admission at the outset^ as m...

Uackay. [FfiOM OCH OWS CORBB5FONVEXT.] Theee is not a great deal to wnte about when one is sending correspondence from Mackay. We are, far the most part, a quiet easy-going lot, and take li£e mnch as it happens to come.
