THE SCHOOL OF ABTS. The annual meeting of the members of this institutioD took place on Thursday evening last. There was a very meagre attendance. The chair was occupied by F. O. Darvall, Esq., President. After a few remarks by tbe chairman, the Secretary read the annual report, which was adopted. It was a voluminous affair, interesting to those immediately concerned, but in de tail rather tedious. The financial statement exhibits a balance in the hands of the Treasurer of £59 16s. 2d.

THE CANNING DOWNS REWARD. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

THE CANNING DOWNS REWARD. We are not surprised now at the devo tion shown by the gentlemen, who huddle together under the wing of the Colonial Secretary, to their chief. The reward is a rich one. If we were not afraid of the accusation of profanity, we might almost bo tempted to exclaim, ' to whom much is given, from him much shall be required.'9 Mr. J. D. McLean is a rich man, and, naturally enough, desires to have still more. 'Jock wants more' — and he gets it. As perhaps the most substantial sup porter of the present Administration in the Assembly, he is entitled to a great | donation as he is also bound to render I them an efficient service. He does re-i- | der them that aid, and he gets his reward. This accords with what Philo sopher Sqtjeebe called the eternal fitness of things. And Mr. McLean gets from our wise, and patriotic an;!****— m.wnito -oo-rarnment some eleven or twelve thousand acres of land at the upset price ; when, if that land bad been put up to auction, it would...

DUTIES OF A LEGISLATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

DUTIES OF A LEGISLATOR. To the dignity of representing a con stituency is attached grave responsi bility as well as high honour. When a member of Parliament is elected by fair means — when from his worth alone bis constituents have made choice nf him — the honorcouferred is a high one, aud worthy the admiration of all rigut tninded men ; but when jobbery is set to work — when the law of election is violated — when the public-house and the purse are open to the supporters ? the right to eit in the Legislature acquired by such practices, is deservedly held in cou tempt. And justly : for how can a member of Parliament be respected as Each if his election has been carried by such means as those to which we have alluded ? The posi tion is honorable, principally because the member must bave, or ought to have had, the confidence of tbe majority of his constituents at the time of elec tion. But when bribes are freely bestowed, when corruption is practised, when promises are given which the ...

THE FLOODS AS AN ARGUMENT ADVERSE TO AGRICULTURAL PROSPERITY. [Newspaper Article] — The North Australian — 16 April 1864

THE FLOODS AS AN ARGUMENT ADVERSE! TO AGRICULTURAL PROSPERITY. The disastrous inundations which we have just witnessed, and by which we hope not to he visited again for some time, will no doubt be instanced by many as showing the futility of engag ing iu agricultural pursuits iu this colony. For there are those who look upon the excesses to which our climate is liable from time to time, as enough to do away with the calling of the hus bandman in Queensland. Now, as this is the only argument, as far as we know, which those who hold such opinions can bring forward iu their favor, it is im portant to consider it aud carefully es ainine the ex.t£nt of its wnndnEs. i% asiaf as'the nature of our soil is con cerned, there is nothing but what holds out the greatest inducement as well to the 'tiller of lauds ' as to the 'keeper of sheep.'

mHE FIRST QUARTERLY REPORT _L of proceedings in connection with the erection of the NKW ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH in Brisbane. It has been seen and felt for the past two years, by the Catholics of Brisbane, that tiie present Church of St. Stephen is far too small to give them sufficient accommo dation. Often during that time have the Clergy and Laity deplored this state of things, and expressed their determination to remedy the evil as bogs as practicable. The rapid arrival of immigrants up to last September and various other circumstances which it is now needless to mention, pre vented any movement that had been made in the matter, before that time, from being snccessfnL PfiEUIIUiABV MEETIKG OF CATHOLICS OF BBIfBAXE.
