TUE leader writers of tho Australasian arc very smart and often very inaccurate. OD the Polynesiau slavery question they aro invariably and hopelessly, and, we fear, knowingly and wilfully wrong. The issue of 17th February contains a characteristic outburst of injured virtue and righteous indignation, the pretext being the arrival of a " water-logged slaver" at Cardwell. lind this been published on receipt of first intelligence of the picking up of (he schooner, there mi^ht have boon some excuse for the writer, but as sonic days before thc article appeared the news had been flashed through the colonies that thc " water-logged slaver " was the Fiji prison hulk " Peri,'* the misstatements and />.?«íífo-phi!anlhropy and smart writing of tho article are alike indefen- sible. It is a perfect gem in the way of a sensational paragraph, and therefore we reproduce it entire. After deploring tbe vices of "our civilisation," tho writer " explodes" thus : And while these things nro going rn ...

TnE arrival of a largo clipper versel iu Keppel Bay leads us lo again urge the desirableness of opening up direct com- munication between tin's port and Great Britain. The exports of our throe lead I ing products from this port during tho past yenr, as per Customs returns, were, wool 2733 tons, tallow 1672 tons, and copper 1032 tons-malling a total of GS37 tons, exclusive of preserved meats, hides, sheepskins, etc., etc., and of a not inconsidorahlcqunntity shipped coastwise. Tho producers of these 6537 tons of exports were mulct in tho sum paid for freight to Sydney, and in return they were charged the Sydney importer's profit and cost of freight for all their supplies. The system, therefore, cuts both ways to the disadvantage of the producer, and imposes a tax upon all North Queensland investments which operates prejudicially to the interest of the whole people. Wero there any necessity fur us to remain in ttie leading strings of Sydney, complaint would be useless. If it were in a...

MR. TROLLOPE ON ROCKHAMPTON. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 16 March 1872

MB. TROLLOPE ON ROCKHAMPTON. THE seekor after Icaowledgc does not go to novels for facts, and, if we may judge by Mr. TIIOLLOPE'S first letter to the Daily Telegraph on Queensland, it would bo folly to expect an impartial narrative from the pen of a popular novelist. Even when he assumes thc vocation of special correspondent to a democratic newspaper, he seems to write under the impression that so long as his observa- tions are founded upon facts and arc in accordance with tho politics of his employers, ho may be indifferent to the obligations of truth and justice. Mr. TIIOLLOPE was badly treated in Rockhampton. Ile was invited to a public dinner, and there required to malte a speech. But he did not then speak of Bock hampton as " a little town up north, " which desires to be a capital, and is, " therefore, very clamorous." Neither did ho leam from personal inspection or communication that " north of Rock " hampton there arc other towus, and a " people not less averse to Rockhampton...

THE BLACK QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 16 March 1872

THE BLICK QUESTION. How to deal justly with native rncoB has always proved au insoluble problem to colonists in all lands. No country within the habitable portions of tho globe is absolutely destitute of inhabi- tants ; and whenever tho redundant populations of the old world seek to plant their feet on new soil, they are met by n people in possession. That people is almost invariably a savage one -a comuiunity which can bo bound by no treaty, and kept to no compact, except by the display of superior force. Hence occurs that conflict of races which vexes the civilised colonist, and ultimately compasses the destruction of the aboriginal. It has been proved prac tically impossible for a civilised and a savage race to dwell together in amity. There can be no equality between them. They cannot be governed by the same laws. Indeed, uncivilised communities practically acknowledge no law except that might ia right, and all attempts' to treat with them on any other basis have proved lamentab...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Rockhampton Bulletin — 16 March 1872

COMMERCIAL.   THERE are still the complaints of dull     trade, but the roads being now practicable, load- ing is being forwarded, up-country, and whole- sale business is consequently moderately brisk. We note with pleasure the important addition   of another fine steamboat - the "Lord Ashley" to our coasting fleet. She is chartered by Messrs. R. M. Hunter and Co., of this port, in conjunc- tion with Messrs. J. E. Manning and Dugald Little, of Sydney. Of course she is strongly opposed by the A. S. N. Company, but, not- withstanding, she brought the largest number of passengers that has reached the port in one vessel for many months past. This arose partly from the adventitious circumstance of a diggers' rush from Sydney and other ports to the newly discovered goldfield of Charters Towers, near the Burdekin River. The Rockhampton trading community wish the new comer every success, especially in the northern trade, the commerce of th...
