FAST GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 7 October 1876

FAST GIRLS. j How comes it that amongst the higher and the higher-middle classes of English ^Society—maniag-ee are ind&btiably on the decline ! To prove the truth of this statement, little, if any, argument is needed. Let the middle-aged reader ponder for a moment, and calculate how few men who are ten to fifteen years his junior hare taken unto themselves wives, than was the case when the world was a decade younger than it is. A generation or more ago, it was considered- the right thing for anyone who, although he might be struggling to some de gree with poverty, conld see his way to a fair com petency, to marry. This was more especially the case with professional men. The barrister, doctor, or others who had perhaps an income of three or four hundred a-year, who was about thirty years of age, but who believed he had a chance of doubling that amount before he was forty, as a rule invariably took uato himself a helpmate. Dickens and Thackeray both contributed to this state o...

The time that elapses before this bog is" -passable .-alter heavy rains appears to be nearer three weeks than three days. In the Maranoa District the expenditure has been, comparatively small, work being confine*! chiefly to the dam-making and road maintenance ; %e .most important ofthe latter has been the draining of the ■"Dalby Lane."- Previous to this improvement, this, section of the Dalby-Roma road, which is fenced in for five miles, was all but impassable in wet gather, and permission had to be aon^ht from the owner of some--adjoining land to allow the traffic, to pass through his paddocks during the rains. : This is no longer necessary, as the road now dries three days after rain.

IMPERIAL FEDERATION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 7 October 1876

IMPERIAL FEDERATION. A most valuable book has lately been published by that well-known City firm, so largely and bene ficially connected with the colonies, Messrs. Silver and Co., of CornhilL It is entitled " Imperial Federation of Great Britain and her Colonies," and is edited l»y a gentleman who takes a lively interest in the cause of Imperial unity and coherence, Mr. Frederick Young, the hon. secretary of the Boyal Colonial Institute. The volume is composed of letters contributed during the last few years to that enterprising advocate of Federation, the Colonies; and Mr. Young, who is the author of many of the ablest and most informatory letters reprinted in the book before us, has supplied a useful preface. The appearance of " Imperial Federation" felicit ously coincided with the memorable anniversary of that "Independence Day" which was celebrated in North America for the firettime onthe 4th of July, 1776. The moral which Mr. Young draws from ■' Independence Day" is that if mor...
