IN consequence of tho small attendance of members on Thursday last, the usual quarterly meeting of the School of Arts, called for that evening, was adjourned until Thursday next, by which timo it is hoped the weather will have clcarad up.

THE ART OF SNUBBING. (From the Graphic.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 16 January 1872

THE ABI OF SNUBBING. (Ffom the O rapide.) BrairTiiir taken, there are only two methods of life-tho lifo of impulse or instinct, and tho lifo of consciousness or art ; and the chief characteristic of man is that he is tho only creature on this earth of ours whoso purposes go beyond his instincts, who reduces blind impulso to a conscious, art. And among tho things which aro mero impulses in the beginning, but which he has raised to the rank of arts by care and study, is that of snubbing. Inartistic snubbing, crude, archaic; undigested snubbing, snubbing in the rough, snubbing of tho sledge-hammer order, is a thing that comes by nature. You see it from tbe earliest age, when Jacky, just four, snubs Jenny, just three, and tells her to hold her tonguo, ehe is only a little girl, and don't know nothing about it. In- deed, all elder children snub all younger ones, as part of the prerogatives of seniority and tho natural curriculum; the nursery being the placo where there is perpetual putli...

AN AMERICAN BATTLE OF DORKING. THE CONQUEST OF AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 23 January 1872

AN AMERICAN BATTLE OF DORKING. THE CONQUEST OF AKEBICA. You ask me to tell you, my children, of the events which immediately preceded the destruction of the onoe great American Union, and the capture of the country by its present European rulers, and to «ay something also of the cause which led to these deplorable results. I undertake the task with a heavy heart; for when I revert to that terrible time I cannot help contrasting our proud condition up to that fatal year with the humiliating position occupied by the American people. The story is a short one. In the fall of 1872 Horace Gresley, the editor of a news- paper in New York, was elected Presi- dent of the United otates. The people voted for him because tbey thought he was an honest man. And so he was. But he was also vain and weak, and he entertained certain fanatical and prepos- terous notions-about agricultural matters for instance-which he was determined to force upon the people at all hazards and despite all opposition. H...

The islet was soon converted into a bustling little canvas town. From nearly every tent some instrument peered out, oil pointing in one direction, as though these mortal«, with their puny optic«, thought to stare out of countenance the great eye of day. The Victorian party hod two analysing spectroscope«,. both equatoriaily mounted. The first wat in the hand« of Mr. Ellery, and the second was to be worked by Mr. Foord, both gentlemen having assistants to use the finding telescopes attached to pick out portions of the corona for examina- tion. The two analysing spectroscopes'were for examining the nature of the light of the chromo- sphere and the corona; and the integrating spectroscope, entrusted to Mr. M'George, was designed to examine the nature of...

SIB,-In a leading artiole in the Bulletin of the 9th instant, you give a qualified eupport to the maintenance of Polynesian labour, of which you do not profess to be an enthusiastic admirer I am tempted to say a few word« m reference to this, because yon justify your opinion on the ground« that it te uteleas ' to ignore the fact that our labour market never ha« been adequately supplied from Europe " Of skilled workmen you, with perfect truth, proceed to remark, "there is no lock, but of aimple bone and muscle there has never been, continuously at least, a supply equal to the demand " You are perfectly right, there lies nover been a sufficient cordmuout supply But there u no reason why there should not be, exoept our own choice You epeak of the labour market It is perhaps a harmless enough expression if properly under- stood I confess, however, that I am inclined to take a eomewhat similar objeotion to the term ss wa« lately very eloquen...

tÇjje Ifffcí^am^on; §uüetwt AKD CENTBAI. QUEENS LAVO ADFEBTISEU. TUESDAY, JANUARY 23, 1872. [ THE letter from Mr. JOHN DOUGLAS, published" íñ'óür corT^offtfeñcB oof urna, r is entitled to a passing notice. Written by a gentleman who has been officially employed for a. year or two past in con- nection with emigration, it must be received as something more than a theoretical expression of opinion. Mr. DOUGLAS must be in a position to know better than most of us what hope there is of keeping up a steady stream of European emigration, and what are the obstacles to be overcome in attaining so desirable an end. Too much European immigration we cannot have, if it be of tbe right kind ; there is boundless scope for persons desirous of settling upon the land, and the greater the number of settlers, tbe greater the demand for labourers. At the same time, a numerically small addition of Europeans to our community might quickly repro- duce that whick Queensland has already suffered from more th...
