MR. T. H. J. BROWNE PROTESTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

MR. T. H. J. BROWNE PROTESTS. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR, - In the W. A. Times' report of the late libel case in the Supreme Court,   between Mr. Pearce of the Herald and Messrs Stirling Brothers of the Inquirer, the learned counsel for the defence is re- presented to have said that the editor of the Herald, "penned leading articles reflecting   ''on gentlemen's actions on the simple ipsi "dixit of another kindred spirit, Thomas "Henry Johnson Browne." I have ascer-   tained that my name with reference to the suit in question was in other ways - very freely used by Mr. Parker. Against this I ask leave to enter a protest. I was no party to the suit ; I was not a witness on either side, and with reference to the causus belli, I was not mixed up with it in any way whatever. I protest further, and repudiate the im- putation conveyed by Mr. Parker's assertion - circulated world-wide by your journal that on information supplied by me t...

THE Best Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. 18, 1879. "THE WEST AUSTEALIAN." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, NOV. l8, 1879. "THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. " THE W. A. Times has run its course; and in   this first issue of the "West Australian'' which now takes its place as a candidate for public favour, it is desirable, that the pro- prietors should point out the reasons which have induced them to adopt this change of title, and to issue their journal in this altered dress. The W. A. Times when in other hands was conducted as an organ of the so-called 'liberal' party in this colony, and consistently advo- cated immediate change of the constitution with a view to the adoption in Western Australia of a similar form of government to that which prevails in other divisions of the Australasian group. And when the present proprietors purchased that journal, it was with the object, not of continuing to advocate the same line of policy, But of adopting one totally distinct. It was, to a great extent, for the purpose of supplying a vehicle fo...

ABRAM : Do you bite your thumb at us, sir ? SAMPSON : Is the law of our side, if I say, Aye ? GREGORY : No. SAMPSON : No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir ; BUT I BITE MY THUMB, SIR _ ROMEO AND JULIET. Let the above serve for introduction. If further explanation be wanting, be it under- stood that the stomach resembles nature in one respect-it abhors a vacuum. There are reasons why various men write. The best of these is because they have something to say, which they consider it concerns every- body to know. Another is because some- body has asked them. A third is because they own a paper and can set type. But so far as my observations extend, there is hut one reason why men keep on writing, and that is because they get paid for it. Com- mencing with the necessity for filling the vacuum...

THE GIRLS' COLLEGE, PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

THE GIRLS' COLLEGE, PERTH. When Bishop Parry first started the idea of establishing a high class school for girls,- one in which our children might receive an educa- tion such as we have long vainly hoped that we might give them - most people thought it a mistake. They acknowledged the extreme desirability of obtaining improved educational advantages, they sighed as they thought of the flimsy way in which their girls were being trained;but, as so often is the case in West Australia, they deprecated anything so start- ling and so new. They thought the Bishop wanted to do too much, and that this last idea would never answer. That is not long ago - and yet this phase of feeling is quite forgotten now. The 'Girls' Col-   lege' is a great success, and West Australian parants owe a debt of gratitude to Bishop Parry; and to those who have so heartily and earn- estly worked with him towards the attainment of an object so much and so long desired. The school began, and has been ...

SUMMER MANAGEMENT OF NATIVE PASTURES, [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

SUMMER MANAGEMENT or NATIVE j PASTURES, 1 TnK following extract from the Austral- asian of the 18th October last, deals with a subject of the greatest interest to graziers in all parts of Australia. It is the intention of the Proprietors of the West Australian to do all in their power to encourage the carry- ing out in this colony of the principles therein laid down ; and, for this purpose, they are making arrangements to procure seeds of all the best descriptions of indigenous Austra- lian grasses, in the hope that, with the co- operation of those interested, they may be   able to permanently establish some varieties fitted to augment the stock-carrying capa- bilities of our pasture lands. The Proprie-   tors will be grateful for any information on   the subject that may tend to forward this project :   " The deterioration of our native pastures as regards their fattening powers, which was but lately the subject of remark in these...

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN STATE SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN STATE SCHOOLS. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,- The leader in the W. A. Times of Oct 28, on "Religious Instruction after School-hours"   will be welcomed as a support by all who are anxious for the more thorough teaching of reli- gion to our children ; but most of the remarks in it are founded upon two misconceptions of the present position of such instruction which tend to obscure the difficulties to be dealt with. They are- ( 1) that religious instruction is exclud- ed from the curriculum of Government schools ; (2) that every facility is given to ministers of re- ligion to impart it. Neither of these is, in fact, the case. Three quarters of an hour is set apart for religious in- struction in all Government schools, and the teachers are as much bound to give it every day as any other lesson ; at the same time they are restricted as to the quality of such instruction ; no encouragement is given them - by examination of the children, ...

A CAUTION FROM THE WILLIAMS TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

A CAUTION FROM THE WILLIAMS To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,- A correspondent signing himself "Veritas" in your issue of the 7th instant   gives us some information about the Reform League, which, if true, (and I suppose it is,   as nobody seems to havo contradicted it) ought to make electors very careful before voting for any candidate brought forward by, and committed, to this party. As an elector   of the Murray and Williams district, I should like to know whether Mr. Septimus Burt is a member of that League ; because, although. I have a good opinion of the abilities of that gentleman. I should be disinclined to vote for him (and I think plenty of my fellow electors agree with me) if he is going to be influenced by such a party as that described by, " Veritas." It would be unfair to our interests and to his judgment ; and I hope Mr. Burt will be able to disclaim any con- nexion with the aforesaid party. In our requisition we have c...

THE "HEBALD" AND MR. MAITLAND BEOWN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

THE "HERALD" AND MR. MAITLAND BROWN. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,- The reckless attack made by the organ of the Reform Party upon our late member (Mr. Brown), shows among other things how utterly incomprehensible to small and perverted minds are the motives that influence the conduct of honorable men, and men of greater grasp of in- tellect than themselves. As the eye of a bat or a mole is utterly unfitted to explore the splendours of the heavens, so is the contracted vision of many small specimens of humanity utterly unable to appreciate the actions of an honorable and straightforward man. From their point of view - from the Herald's point of view - honour and worth are mere words, and political honesty an empty phrase. Mr. Brown's action during the recent session of Council in supporting the Government when he honestly believed the Government was de- serving of support, is altogether above the com- prehension of the Herald. It is therefore not   to be wo...

Country Letters. NEWCASTLE, Nov. 15. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 November 1879

êomtxji Jete. NEWCASTLE, Nov. 15. Our local Horticultural Society made an- I other -struggle for existence, and again I appealed for public patronage and support, j during Fair time ; but I regret to say that j the result was by no means encouraging. If Tam asked to account for the failure of this association, I think I might point out the fact that a mistake was made, when forming the society last year, by fixing the entrance fee at so high a figure as £3. This rule was not known to many exhibitors until they arrived on the ground, aud it gave rise to a good deal of rather unfavorable comment. So far as your correspondent was concerned, he was under the impression that the society was formed with a view to encourage horti- culture, and to foster a taste for the culti- vation of the beautiful and the useful in Nature. But in this it seems I was wrong, . the promoters of the society it appears being animated by more sordid motives, the object in view being money-making. I was not sin...

ARALUEN. Take this rose and very gently Place it on the tender, deep Mosses where our little darling,   Araluen, lies asleep. Put the blossom close to baby, Kneel with me, my love, and pray;     We must leave the bird we've buried, Say good-bye to her to-day. In the shadow of our trouble, We must go to other lands;     And the flowers we have fostered Will be left to other hands.   Other eyes will watch them growing, Other feet will softly tread Where two hearts are nearly breaking, Where so many tears are shed.   Bitter is the world we live in       Life and Love are mixed with pain, We will never see these daisies;     Never water them again. Ah, the saddest thoughts in leaving Baby in this bush alone Is that we have not been able On her grave to place a stone!   We have been too poor to do it;   But, ...
