THE CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

THE CHOLERA. One of the most gratifying pieces of intelli gence by the last mail was that the Cholera and Renderpest or Cattle pleagues had disap peared, and that ghe Primate of England, the Professional prayer maker General had been ordered to issue a form of thanksgiving and ac cordingly the nation has been called on to re turn thanks for God's mercy not only in remov ing the Plague and pestilence from the hearths, and fields but for having left them "a Remnant" for their future sustenance. If the archbishop felt " shame and sorrow," nothing could be more righ than to acknowledge it. If the nation felt it, every heart being oppressed with the sorrow, every face burning with the shame, what so proper as to put prayer ? but if the Primate mesely wrote the words because he must write something just to sound like humility, and if the majority of the people repeat the words without in any way feeling their truth, such conventional humility is not good either for the heart of the Archbi...

YORK CLERICAL CONGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

YORK CLERICAL CONGRESS. That Church affairs and interests are fair subjects of public discussion is an established faet. Happily whatever differences either on doctrinal dogmatic or even Sacrodotal vest ments questions may exist amongst; Spiritual persons all, whether Ritualistic, Evangelical, or Media Via professors declare that they have but one commou object that of inducing the uneducated class to pay more attention. to the discharge of their moral obligations and so long as they adhere honestly to these pro fessions we are not disposed to critizies too closely their several idiosyncrasies, we have read with great interest the accouut of the York Church Congress Meeting in some re spects it has outshone all former gatherings of the same kind. The attendance of Church dignataries in particular was ample, beyond any precedent of modern times.

A VISIT TO A BACON-CURING ESTABLISHMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

A VISIT TO A BACON-CURING ESTABLISHMENT. Hillier's Bacon-Curing Company at New market, in Gloucestershire, is one of the largest curing houses in England; about 500 pigs are killed on the establishment per week. The Grocer describes the process of killing and curing, and from the article we extract the more interesting particulars. A pen of pigs is passed into an enclosure at the end of a long narrow room,with floors slanting from walls to centre over-head an iron bar runs through the centre of the room,with a windlass at the end. A small chain with a running noose is placed over the hind leg of the pig about to be slaughtered, and he is run up and transferred by a hitch to the iron beam. The butcher then sticks him, and he is passed on by means of the greased bar to the man whose duty it is to remove the bristles. The singer has a saddle-shaped iron, fixed to a large and a smaller pipe, supplying atmospheric air and gas respectively; the air and gas are received into separate cavit...

THE PARIS EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

THE PARIS EXHIBITION. (From the Paris Correspondent of the London Daily News.) I was startled one day last week, cross- ing the Place Vendome, by perceiving an avenue of trees which had apparently sprung, by some miracle, from the earth, and were spreading their welcome shade over the toothsome splendors of Girau- din's windows, and the tipplers of Ameri- can aspect who frequent a grog shop on the opposite side of the way. Had Bir- nam Wood removed to Dunsinane? It was amusing to watch the wondering, the startled expression of the passers by as the strange vision broke upon them. Presently the grove of shady trees moved forward in stately line, and wound round the western side of the Place. There was a shout of laughter when the little crowd of merry Parisians perceived that the grove was moving forward, each tree strung in a vast bag upon wheels, and drawn by three or four stout Norman horses. They were only a few of the forests that is to move by degrees to the Champs de Mars, the...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

It is a well established truth that THE   PRESS, wielding a pewerful sway over the human mind, is one of the certain aids in the cause of civilisation. In the cradle of the English colonies, consecrated by the voice pf the people and side by side with their liberties, it commands a high station from which it views, and often directs, the progress of knowledge, wealth and population, and the social and political energies of a nation. It aims at recording, for the warning or for the encouragement, the errors or the wisdom, the vices or the virtues of the mightiest in the land; while it seeks to repel, or encourage, the movements of the humblest and most powerless among them. In the political atmosphere of the world, it acquits itself well in the great art of harmonizing different Powers, not with the contention which renders strife and disoirder inevitable; but with a spirit which tends to result in the conquest of reason and progress. For without aspiring to penetrate or...

THE AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

THE AMERICAN DIFFICULTY. There is no external subject which at this moment so intensely occupies public attention, which at the same time is so little understood as the Constitution of our Anglo-Saxon relatives at the other side of the Atlantic. A Republic, made up of thirty-four separate, yet subordinate Republics, with eight "territories" or states, which, when they have the constitutional qualifi- cation of 40,000 inhabitants, will have to be added to the existing thirty-four, is no doubt the greatest political wonder of this or any other age. When the original thirteen states had fully established their independance of the British Crown, and that independance had been solemnly recognized, Washing- ton and his associated Heroes and States- men, who had counselled him in the Cabinet and fought with him in the field, met to deliberate on, and frame a Constitution for the new Republic. For six months these self-devoted and able men, sworn to secresy, discussed article by article a c...

Perth Police Court. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

Perth Police Court. [Before E. W. Landor, Esq., Police   Magistrate.]   Reported for The Herald. During the week there has been about the usual number of minor and uninteresting offences heard and disposed of : but the deci- sion given last week in an action brought by Mrs. Sabina Jones, against R. J. Sholl, Esq., is instructive to parents and schools. The Plaintiffs case, stated by Mr. Loftie. And the facts elicited on hearing it were these:— Mrs. Jones has a school at Perth, chiefly for day-scholars. In June, 1864, Mrs. Leake, a friend of Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Sholl, had a conversation with the latter about sending her little girl, aged 8, to Mrs. Jones's school. Mrs. Leake negotiated the terms, that £10 per annum was to be paid for her tuition. No other terms were mentioned. There was nothing said to Mrs. Sholl that a quarter's notice would have to be given before remov- ing the child, or else that a quarter's payment would be required, The plaintiff's cou...

THE TRADE OF JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

THE TRADE OF JAPAN. The trade of the European nations   with Japan has certainly made a most respectable progess, seeing that it is the creation of hardly ten years—literally, a creation; for to the people of Europe the Empire of Japan had been almost her- metically closed for two centuries. But for some old porcelain and some lackered boxes, which we received through the Dutch, we should hardly have known that the most ingenious people of the East, next to the Chinese, possessed any manufactures at all. Now it turns out that the Japanese have not only manu- factures, but a surplus of raw materials for exportation, the latter a fact of which the best informed on such subjects had no hope or expectation. Moreover, besides this, they have a taste for foreign fabrics, as far as we can ascertain exceed- ing that of any other Oriental people. The evidence for all this is furnished by a well-informed contributor to the Times, and we give a few particulars of exports and impor...

Correspondence. (To the Editor of "The Herald.") [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

Correspondence.       (To the Editor of "The Herald.") MR. EDITOR, You are probably aware that a short time since, a Memorial, under the auspices, I believe, of the Town Trust, was circulated for signa- ture, praying His Excellency the Governor to be good enough to formally open the new Bridge across the Swan. That this Memorial eventually reached the Governor, and received his attention, I glean from the following para- graph, which appears in the columns of your Perth contemporary, the Perth Gazette and W. A. Times, of the 18th inst.: "In compli-   ance with a numerously signed request, His Excellency the Governor has expressed his willingness to appoint a day for a formal open- ing of the Fremantle Bridge, &c." I think, I may justly say this was the first intimation the persons who signed the memo- rial received to the acceptance of their request, and since reading it I have learnt that one or two communications have bee...

CLIPS BY A SANDAL-WOOD CUTTER. THE POOR FARMER. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

CLIPS BY A SANDAL-WOOD CUTTER. THE POOR FARMER. I 'aint a edicated man, 'cause when I was a youngster there wasn't no National Schools like there is now, where a poor lad may get a fair edication for a penny a-week. I almost forget how I learnt to read aud write, but if my mem'ry serves me, it, it was by asking people to read me the names over shop doors, and tell me the letters. However, it 'aint of much consequence how I picked up a knowledge of reading and writing -a very little to be sure-but enough for all I wanted, that of putting down my thoughts on what passes around me. After all sorts of ups and downs in England, I emigrated out' here as an indentured servant to one of the early settlers, ,and since the Sandal Wood sprung up have been most of my time in the bush cutting. I like the life--it is free, and I can get time to indulge in the only amusement I have or want, my gun. I am contentented, and because contented, happy. A whim's come on me lately of writing to the newspa...

BANKS AND BANKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

BANKS AND BANKING. THE Directors of the Western Australian Bank have recently published their half- yearly Report; a document whose ap- pearance was looked for with interest, not only by persons in anticipation of a snug dividend, but also by those who expected to find in it some allusion that might serve to indicate the feeling enter- tained towards the New Bank. The anxiety of the former-class has been most agreeably relieved by the declaration of ividinat the rate of twenty per cent., while, for the information of the last named class, the Directors state that the business' of the Bank has suffered no diminution in consequence of the forma- tion of no less than three other Banks. On the contrary, a slight increase has been made in a new direction; a sum of £10,000 has been drawn into the Bank in consequence of the Directors having allowed interest on fixed deposits. It is not the writer's intention, how- ever, to criticise the affairs of the West- ern Australian Bank. He is happy...

European Intelligence. THE FUTURE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 February 1867

European Intelligence.     THE FUTURE OF EUROPE. By far, beyond all comparison, the most mo- metous problem which can for some time to come occupy the mind and engross the attention of England, is the consequences, more or less proximate or remote, of the revolutionized state of Europe, as they affect our own most vital interests. We have interests in the East; there is the Mediterranean, there is India; we have interests on the ocean everywhere, and especi- ally in the Baltic and Black Seas. We went to war with Russia for the safety of India, for the safety of the Mediterranean and Black Sea, that they might not be turned into French or Russian lakae; the integrity of Turkey, except so far as it answered the end of fender or buffer against Russian ambition, and aggrandisement, was a mere romance of diplomacy. But are not all the advantages we hope to gain by the Crimean war fast slipping from our grasp ? And have we not to fear in the waters of the North t...
