DEATH OF MR. ANDREW PETRIE, SENIOR. (From the Brisbane Courier, February 21.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 2 March 1872

DEATH OF MR. ANDREW PETHIE, SEKIOK. (From the Brisbane Courier, Fehmarn 21.) THE (leith of the oldest free resident in our community and colony, is an event »ot tn bc allowed to li.ippou without notice; and tho aged, revered, aud useful cilir.cn who has just left our world for a belter was no ordinary mau. Tho uauio of Audrew Petrie is indis- solubly connected not only with tho carly history of Brisbane, but tho colony. Although for some years past incapacitated by a painful malady from active interference in tho more prominent duties of life, he never relaxed his interest in all that was going on around him in the colony. For thirty-four years or more he had watched its growth and advancement from tho ignoble position of a more out- lying penal settlement of New South AVnleB to the dignified and important status of an independent province. Krona 1837 to the time of his death, ho watched ile progress with a solicitude which never flagged-rejoicing in its prosperity, and sorrowing in...

THE EXTINCTION OF TALK (From the Graphic) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 2 March 1872

TOE EXTINCTION OF TALK (From the GrapJtio) PlittiiAps tlioro never waa iv limn in ihc his'ory of Bocicty when intelligent people spoko so much to BO little purpose. It would seem ns though all tbe paris of speech lind run to seed, and were bursting forth iu n crop of meaningless nonsonxc. No doubt nations, like individuals, grow old and garrulous; but without arrogating to ourselves any extraordinary amount of intelligence, it may bo snfi-lv asserted that our thoughts anti deeds aro of a quality vastly superior to our utter- ances. Whether we uso words more glibly and with less respect, or whether we take more words to represent the same quantity of Mens than did our fathers, it is certain that tho table-talk and tho average conversation of (ho "good old limes" muBt have been in- comparably buller than the clatter of our own day, and immeasurably more useful. Tho multiplication of books and newspapers lias probably had some- thing lo do with tho decadence of intellectual conversatio...

THE Ammuu&N OB Pirata CHOW.-This bird i« now well known, but perhaps ile admirera tra not aware that it will breed freely with us. It builds regularly at Elveden, in Bo (folk, the seat of Iiis Highness (he Maha rtjah Duleep Sing. It begins to build about March, mading a nest of et ¡els, like the rook, end at that time of tho year is very savage, constantly offering battle to any ono approaching the nest. It is often most artful in i's attacks, for if it observes an unfortunate Eonllenian approaching the tree without his at, and rather baldlicaded, thc bird on guard ie eure to «uprise him by pouncing on his devoted head, and inflicting severe punishment with its «harp bill. They ure certainly ono of our best bird-pels, for in general they can hold their ground against most things, or, if not, they take good care to make a rapid retreat, and they are hardy sud most amusing.

EVENINGS AT HOME. (From the Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 2 March 1872

EVENINGS AT HOME. (From the Saturday Review.) THE winter evening ia in the truest and closest sense the evening at home. What one most misses in it, perhaps, is a little sensible organisation. Nobody seems to realise how very hard it is for a number of people to amuse themselves and one another for dozens of nights in succession. There aro a few traditions, like those of reading or music, that bring order into the chaos, but the j>ooks ar chosen haphazard, and the music is left to chance. The family group which began so merrily over the fire breaks up by a series of quiet secessions. Mamma resumes silence aud berATltmtting needles, Mary wanders off j» tbe UIUBÍC stool, thc schoolboy flings himself on1 the essy chair. Everybody yawns with ! a certain weary rolief when tbe prayer-1 bell rings, and yet nobody could exactly say why the evening had been so weari- some. The truth is that tho bulk of the people think that entertainment comes of itself, and that tho least organisation is...
