No title [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 30 October 1861

The success that lias so far attended the attempt to form a School of Arts has served amply to refute the charge of want of interest in such an undertaking, that, when the pro posal was first mooted a month back, a num ber of persons wished to fasten upon the public of Newcastle. One institution of a similar nature had already died away, after but a brief existence, and an effort which had been subsequently made to reanimate it had utterly failed. It is idle now to consider what the causes of these failures were. They were pointed out when a fresh endeavour to form an institution of this kind was first spoken of, but persons were by no means unanimous in agreeing as to the reasons of previous failures, but, on the contrary, shewed a con siderable amount of diversity of opinion on the subject. We were happy, however, to observe that the promoters of the present undertaking were determined to ignore the past, and to make a fresh start for the future, confident that the people of Newca...
