THE FIJIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 October 1870

TfcLE FIJIANS. The settlers in Fiji are of opinion that there is no fear that the native population will ever rise en masse against the Europeans. Were they so disposed, they could sweep the present white population out of the islands in a day. There is no bond of union between the Fijians as a race. So little sympathy exists between the members of different tribes, that when on the same planta tion there are Fijian labourers from different kingdoms they will not sleep under the same roof. They are devoid of patriotism, and therein lies the se curity of the whites. They are also a thoroughly indolent race, and, unlike the Maories, have no warlike genius. Accustomed to treachery from their earliest youth, they are always suspicious of one another. Their love of country is only represented by a tribal feeling-. If the Europeans banded together and demolished one tribe, their next-door neighbours would often be delighted to see it; and on certain occasions white men would have no diffi...

THE ROCK OF PERIM. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 October 1870

THE ROCK OF PERM. A correspondent writes to the Aus tralasian as follows:-Your correspon dent " ^Sgles/' lias fallen into a curious mistake regarding the Rock of Perim. He says, u In the straits of Bab el Mandel there is the island of Perim, strongly fortified," which is perfectly correct; hut he adds, "and under the French flag*," It happens to be under the British flag, and how it came to be occupied is the object of this letter to relate. I do not think that the true story of the occupation of this rock has ever been published. In March, 1863, I was at Aden, and dined with a connection of my own, a lieutenant- colonel of a Sepoy regi ment, at that time stationed there. The conversation was brought round to the subject in the following man ner :-An officer present was bemoan ing his hard fate, as the next day he had to sail to Perim with his men to take a month's duty on the island, no pleasant one certainly, as it is merely a bare rock. The occupation of Perim had caused some sen...

FAR NORTH. (FROM OUB OWN COBBESPONDENTS.) MOUNT MARGARET, Sept. 26. There have been terrific thunderstorms here, which came so suddenly that the water rose so rapidly in the creeks, that men, horses, and cattle were actually floating and swimming about in all directions; and it was with diffi culty the cook at the out-station succeeded in saving his life, after struggling for an hour to get to a small hillock with a pair of knee boots under hid arm and a heavy stockwhip round his neck, which it was supposed had been washed there by the surging of the water. Violent shocks were heard throughout tlae day, and al together it was the most awful thunderstorm that has ever been known by the oldest hand up here. The country i9 like a large paddock that his been cultivated for years, and the grass, &c., is fully six inches high. Instead of people hobbling their horses, they are glad to let them go free; the feed being so plentiful, they will not go far enough away to annoy them. The...

There was a large attendance of visitors, and the receipts were satisfactory. A large number of prizes were awarded to the N orthern competitors. In the House of Assembly on Friday Mr. H. K. Hughes moved the desirability of construct ing a railway from Port Wallaroo to Clare. A long debate ensued when the hon. mover sat down. Most of the speakers condemned the motion, giving it as their opinion that the money which would be spent in constructing such a line of railway might be more profitably ex pended, Mr. Bright believed that the Clare people desired the proposed line; but if the line was likely to be a paying one, he would give the Wallaroo and Kadina Tramway Company the necessary land if they would take the matter up. The Treasurer remarked that he had told the Wallaroo electors that he s...

The Northern Argus. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1870. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Argus — 7 October 1870

Sife mtltp: gir|us. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1870. THE education question is admittedly one of the most difficult wbich can en gage the attention of the Legislature. Session after session the subject crops up in the religious and political worlds, and both religionists and politicians have vainly attempted to solve the difficulties with which it is surrounded. Now, it seems to us that it is in this mixture of religion with politics that the real difficulty consists. The educa tion question is regarded by many as occupying neutral ground between the Church and State; or rather, we should say, it is looked upon as involv ing principles both of a political and religious nature, and therefore it is thought that the Church as well as the State should have a voice in any mea sure affecting it. We unhesitatingly declare that this position is untenable, and as long as this interference is per mitted we may look in vain for a satis factory solution of the problem. That it is impossible to frame an...
