THE WRECK OF THE BRITISH ADMIRAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 July 1874

THE WRECK OF THE BRITISH AD- MIRAL. In our summary of intercolonial news we furnish a brief record of one of the most ter- rible and heartrending shipwrecks that ever occurred on an Australian coast. The follow- ing painfully interesting details we extract from the report of the Argus special reporter, who was despatched to the scene of the wreck : -"Cargo of all kinds was strewn about the sand. Hogsheads of beer, boxes of tobacco, cases of porter, bales of cloth, dresses and paper, crates of glass and china, cases of books, casks of hardware, piles of lumber, together with portions of the ship and her internal fit- tings, were piled up in most inextricable con- fusion. On some portions of the beach might be found hundreds of small glasses filled with sand, used for egg-boilers. These had quite escaped the fury of the waves, while within a few feet might be seen a large portion of the 'tween decks of the ship, with the iron knees attached, plainly showing that the power of the waves...

NORTHAM. FROH ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 July 1874

NORTHAM. FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. Our Sleepy Hollow was startled out of its long nap last week by what was intended by your Northam Correspondent to be sensational news - it little matters whether true or false. Of late your correspondent has thought pro- per to vent his spleen on the holders of wine licenses in this district. Allow me to quote his words :-" Wine licenses in this district have been attended with very baneful results, and it is not saying too much to say that they have been the utter ruin of more than one family residing in their vicinity. " The above statement so astonished myself and neighbours that we determined to learn where the ruined families resided (if in exis- tence); we inquired in every direction for them, we applied to the police (who are supposed to be acquainted with abuses of the sort, but found out, to our great disgust, that there was not one word of truth in your correspondent's statement ; the whole report was intended to advance some scheme he...

Our Letter Box. (ADVERTISEMENT.) TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 July 1874

Our Letter Box. (ADVERTISEMENT.) TO THE EDITOR. DearSir,- In your last number appeared a statement (from a correspondent at Northam) respecting Wine Licenses. If I am correct in supposing, I know the writer. I have no hesi- tation in stating that his sole object in making such lying statements is to serve some inten- ded purpose of his own. There were but two wine licenses issued for this district ; therefore your correspondent's remark reflects either on me or my son. Both of us have a license to sell wine, and we know to a certainty that there is not a word of truth in your correspon- dent's statement about ruined families. I con- sider it would be wrong to allow published reports of such doings in any district to pass uncontradicted. I remain, yours truly, J. T. COOKE. Neuleyine, June 29,1874.

HARD SAYINGS, TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 July 1874

HARD SAYINGS, TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-I sent you a letter last week with the above heading, in which a few typographical errors occur. The word ' preposition' appears äs 'proposition;' 'extremement' is rendered extrement;' 'Nazareno' as 'Nzarene;' here there is a letter or syllable excised ; there an entire word interpolated. A wide margin is lways allowed to the compositor ; for it is well -known that his eyelids will occasionally grow heavy when the hours of work are protracted ; and, when in this state, between sleeping and waking, it is no matter of surprise if his fingers dip into the wrong division of the type case, and fish out an o instead of an e. The errors hardly call for this explanation ; for I suppose there is not a schoolboy in Perth who does not know the difference between the two words; yet it is a duty one owes to oneself to throw what light one can upon the subject, and show how the mistakes originated. Small they are, but, under some circumstauces, of great power. A ...

We append au epitome of the moatü's news : INTERCOLONIAL. VICTORIA. The ship British Admiral, from Liverpool to Melbourne, was wrecked at King's Island-not many miles from her destination-on the 23rd May, and 79 lives out of 88 on board were lost.

He at once called ali hands, ordered the watch to " haul out the spanker," and put the helm down to bring her round. The ship came quickly round before...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 July 1874

®|j£ fctot Australia« urnes. SOIiUM KON MÜTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, JULY 3, 1874. On Wednesday our Council re-as- sembled, and Representative institutions, as distinguished from Responsible insti- tutions, as a scheme of Government, have now been fairly tried. We think these are purely convertible terms ; for, assuming that the end of Government is (arguing from certain data) to obtain an object that shall advance the general prosperity of a community, we hardly imagine how the public benefit can, by mere form of Government, be better at- tained. We say the public benefit. We admit that under Responsible Govern- ment many individuals may take a higher place upon the ladder of society -may be helped up in the struggle for place and pay ; but although the general avowed object of all politicians is the utter abnegation of selij to the end that a great good may be attained for the multitude, we doubt whether humanity is «lot now much as it always has been. As yet our community, made up of sma...

YORK. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 July 1874

YORK. (from otte own correspondent.) On Thursday evening last a tea meet- ing and concert was hold at the Mechanics' Institute, for the purpose of raising funds for the purchase of a new harmonium for the Church, Although the object of the entertainment was not previously announced, the popularity of such gatherings was evidenced by an un- usually large attendance of all classes and creeds-there being some 200 per- sons present. After due attention had been given to' the good things provided, the musical portion of the programme opened .vith a pianoforte duet by the Misses Burges, the subjects selected be- ing some of the very pretty airs from " Norma," executed with as much bril- liancy as the scarcely perfect instrument would allow. The applause ?rhich greeted these young ladies was evidence of an appreciation of merit in that diffi- cult accomplishment, the correct render- ing of a pianoforte duet. Mr. James Parker's comic song, " The Mermaid," to the air of " Rule Brittania," wa...

TIMBER-CUTTING LICENSES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 July 1874

TIMBER-CUTTING LICENSE3. TO THE EDITOE. Sir,-There appears to be some uncertainty about the actual meaning of the Act referring to Timber-cutting Licenses, and I shall feel obliged if you will bIIow rae space for a few remarks on this subject. Formerly it was understood that a license granted to the em. __ ployer of two men, " to cut, fell, and remove," was intended to mean that the two men could cut and fell -during the time signified in the license, and that the employer might remove at his leisure. Some years ago a question was raised with respect to the time for removing the timber, and the legal decision then given was, that it must be removed, as well as cut and felled, within the specified time, and that new licenses must be taken out as long as the timber remained on Crown lands, although cutting and felling might have ceased long previously. I am now informed that a more than ordinarily gifted genius has discovered a new version of the license regulations, and which I regre...
