LECTURE BY PRINCE ARTHUR. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 25 May 1872

LECTURE BY PRINCE ARTHUR. IK Mardi last Prince Arthur de- livered a lecture nt the Garrison Instructor's Class-room, Dover, on the " Game of War." It consisted of n remarkably lucid description of the German " Kriegspiel," and was designed to excite nn interest in the subject among his Boyal Highness'« brother ' officers in tho garrison and district. i Prince Arthur, who vtas received with npplauBe, in opening his lecture, said he Lad no doubt that many present had been BBked, "Whnt is the Kriegspid, and bow do you play it?" Ho would endeavour to answer these questions as briefly and clearly as he possibly could, and if they' would follow him through some details, which he hoped would not prove wearisome, he felt sure they would agree with him that the game might be of the greatest use to all who were desirous of studying their profession. They must not imagine that it was au amusing game, not such a recreation, for instance, as chess or whist. The Kriegspiel was really a study, and...

DESPITE the unamiable temper of our legislators, the present session has not been altogether a barren one. The Government has been authorised to arrange for the construction of a sub- marine cable between Norman Mouth and Batavia, and to enter into a contract for a monthly mail service via Torres Straits, at a cost not exceeding £25,000 per annum. Both those projects are likely In prove advantageous to the colony, but the latter will confer such important benefits upon the central and northern districts, that it is a subject of special interest to our readers. The attention of our Government was   directed to this matter by a proposal from Mr. FRAZER, the Batavian mer- chant. That gentleman offers to establish a monthly mail service between Batavia and Brisbane for a total subsidy of £36,000 per annum. Of this amount the Java Government have signified their willingness to contribute £11,000, leaving a sum of £25,000 to be provided by this colony. The steamers are to be ...

Tin: Agricultural Society, and indeed the public of New South Wales, are largely indebted to Mr. Walter Hill, of Bris- bane, and the Queensland Government (whom on this particular occasion he represents), for the extensive and valu- able display of the vegetable products of the northern colony. They have afforded important and practically useful infor- mation to thousands who have no other opportunity so favourable of making themselves acquainted with semi-tropical vegetation, and the productions which result from it. Mr. Hill is prepared to give the fullest information in reply to queries that may be put to bim; and those interested iu northern Now South Woles will do well to carefully study the Queensland departmeat. We (S. M.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 28 May 1872

OPINIONS OF THE PEESS. IN last Tuesday's Bulletin, writing on tho ( position taken by tue Press on tho exist- ing political difficulty, wo plnced tlie Queensland Times and Mount Perry Mail among those journals which ap- proved of tho course taken by the Ministry. A contemporary subsequently placed the Times among the Opposition journals And tho Mail among the neutrals, with what justice is shown by the following extracts from our latest files. We learn also from the Courier that one of the Opposition journals the Ipswich Observer, it in itB last issue has pronounced strongly in favour of the Ministry. We (Mount Perry Mail) cannot blame the Government for tho present state of affairs, for we consider that they have fulfilled their pledges. The blame then rests with the men who compose tho minority in parliament ; they jump from . one excuse to another, but the true meaning of it all is this,-Wo are needy men, we have got IOIB of friends in the same condition, and the salaries which w...

Sm.-Tlio lulu liorriblo murdrr« on the Karron help lo frefln ii in my mind tho recollection of I the different tragedies which have occurred in Queensland during my residence (off and on) of fifteen years. My earliest impression of the matter was conveyed by the news of the murder of the Frazer family at Hornet Bank, on the Dun sen. It would iba n downright insult to the survivors of that unhappy family to repeat the account of Ibo atrocities committed by the savages concerned in tho massacre ; but it is refreshing to think that volunteers were found to avenge the cause of the slain, nnd flint they so well prosecuted their endeavours as to claim the attention of the Houses of Legislation in New South Wales, who certainly mads an effort to protect life and property in tho Dawson dis- trict. It wnuld bc tedious to enumerate tho cases of individual murders which have been accomplished by these inhuman fiends ; it is only when numbera ere d...
