THE Wt$t %mtxám, VIOILANS KT AUDAX.' PERTH, TUESDAY, MAY 20, 1880. JN RE THE NORTHERN RAILWAY. WE hare not the slightest inclination io take up Mr. THOMAS'S défonce in regard to any action of his which may be deserving of cen. sure. And we pointed out last week where» in our opinion, Mr. THOMAS had shown a want of judgment which had placed the Government in a very awkward position when, at the close of his contract, Mr. PALM BR made the claims now under arbitration. We hope, however, that we are not singular in holding that fair play should be given to every man, and that before comments are published calculated to damage a profession» al reputation, anxious care should be taken to ascertain the strict accuracy of the pre- misses upon which such comments are based. In the interest of the colony we should have wished that the history of the transac- tions of our Government in connection with the first West Australian railway, might have been buried in oblivion. It scarcely redounds t...

Correspondence. A SUGGESTION FROM BEVERLEY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 25 May 1880

A SUGGESTION FROM BEVERLEY.     To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Hearing that it is the intention of the Government to undertake the necessary repairs on the main roads of the Beverley district, as far as Brookton, and as this letter may come under the eye of the Hon. the Commissioner of Works or the Superintendent of Roads, I wish to call their attention to the following work, which I think ought to be done out of the Road Loan, namely, the construction of a bridge across the southern branch of the Avon River. This branch has two channels which run across the main road, and each are spanned by a small culvert. These culverts were built by a party of prisoners about fifteen years ago, and are now in a state of utter decay-in fact, their re- pair has been a source of expense to the Road Board for some years past. And, besides, when the river runs, the water flows over them. I have known it to flow over the hand rails when we have had a very wet win...

ttpj$i( fJffoS. .;? [ASSOCIATED PBESS.] ; "\JV LONDON, May 22nd1. *r~? The Saturday Review, in an article uponl the recent difficulty betweeu the two Honseä in New South Wales, says the Ministry wa. wrong in provoking the Couucil in regard to a matter in which that chamber was clearly in the right. It further remarks that the attempt of the Ministry to amend the Con- stitution Bill is deserving of the fate which hat befallen Mr. Berry's reform scheme. Aa announced in the Queen's Speech, Mr". Gladstone's Cabinet have determined to use their utmost endeavour to bring the Afghan war to a speedy close. In pursuance of that resolution, Lord Ripon is to bear special in^ structions that the campaign is to be closed at the earliest possible moment Doubts are entertained, however, as to tho possibility of giving immediate effect to the instructions df the Government, inasmuch as the Afghan tribes continue to display considerable hos- tility to the British, and, although no seriouà engagement...

Exploration. JOURNAL OF AN EXPLORING TRIP FROM BEAGLE BAY TO THE FITZROY RIVER, AND BACK AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 May 1880

JOUUNAL OF AN EXPLORING TRIP FROM BEAGLE BAY TO TUE FITZROY RIVER, AND BACK AGAIN. BY JULIUS G. BROCKMAN. We landed at Beagle Bay on the 16th Novem- ber, 1879, having brought up SOO ewes per schooner .driel. After spending a fortnight in putting up huts and stockyards, I started for the Fitzroy River, accompanied by Mr. Hector McRae and Dr. O'Meaghan, and taking with us four horses. Travelling B. S. E. for nearly fifty miles, we reached King's Sound, near Valentine Island, and found some water ia the mangroves, where we camped for half a. day, as the horses had had no water since the morning of the day before. The country all the way from Beagle Bay to this place is nearly a dead \ level, and thickly timbered with York and red a- gum. The soil is sandy, but fairly grassed ie i with wheat and oat grass. Occasional belts-of Je spinifex intervene. I do not think it would keep a- ; stock all the year round without a change. It is a long tramp across this peninsula from Beagle Bay, and i...

Sis,-Having carefully" read the proceeding« before the Supreme Conti in reference to the Northern Ballway arbitration, having also perused the statements yon have made, and the remarks of your contemporaries, and hav- ing besides obtained abundance of material from other source« to aid ihe 'in forming an opinion-I have come to the conclusion that the Government of this colony, at a time when nothing could be more 'injurions to the inter- ests of Western Australia, haye needlessly gone out of their way to bring their administration into, for the most part, undeserved disrepute, and tbatif the people sie .»shocked, and cry "scandal!" and imagine that they have been the victims of roguery,' the Government ii wholly to blame that such ja the case.

To xm EoiTon or THS WSST AUSTRALIAN. ; , Six,-Your Fremantle contemporary, m ita I last issue, in attempting to draw an analogy J between what occurred in Natal and what might occur here in the event of the Council refusing to pass the Appropriation Act, has entirely misstated the facts of the case. What occurred in Natal when the present con- stitution became law was as follows: After the rebellion of Langalibaele, Sir Garnet Wolse ly was sent out to Natal to place the colony on a more secure footing for dealing with the large numbers of natives residing in it, and, amongst other measures, he introduced into the Legislature, (consisting of fire official and fif- teen elected members) a bill to establish a Legislative Council, to consist of ¡thirteen nominees', and fifteen elected members, and this bill was carried, after a debate extending over three days, by a majority of two, and be- came, law. It does not give the Governor a majority of nominee votes as B...

THE QUEEN'S, BIRTHDAY AT PERTH. VOLUNTEER REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 May 1880

THE QUEEN'S, Bl R£ll£>AY AT PERTH." VOLUNTEER REVIEW^ It is probable that to the great majority of the spectators who assembled on the recreation ground yesterday," to witness the volunteer re- view, the spectacle was nothing other than a military parade. In the gay' uniforms, the brisk evolutions of the men, the 'rattle of the rifles, and the roar of the' cannon,, fewj it may be as- sumed, recognized in anything; vof its grim reali ty " the pride, pomp, and ciçoumstance of glo- rious war." And from a purjábj holiday point of view itis just as well that |it'should have been so. The demonstration would,have but ill as- sorted with the general rejoicing« ot tho day if its immediate background had' been felt to be the stern realities of the battle-field. In truth, however, there isa very serious »ide to the mili- tary parade thus 'presented for the delectation of the populace. The Volunteer force repre- sents an auuual expenditure ot many hundreds of pounds, and, in .view of the app...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 May 1880

êmwml Eûtes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. It is doubtful, we think, whether the recent infliction of fines in the case of the half-dozen unruly youngsters of the class who infest vari- ous sections» the city at night, in an inci- pient state of "lorrikinism"-from which not a few of them will ultimately come forth full» fledged criminals---wiU have the effect of stamp- ing out the nuisance. The evil, in our opinion, is due entirely to the laxity of control which parents exercise over their offspring, and the pity is that there is not the means of reaching them, so that they might be punished for their neglect. It is not an evil with which the police can effectually combat The army of street Arabs would appear to be growing stronger in numbers week by week, for it is scarcely pos- sible to take a walk through the streets after dark without meeting with groups of young» stère-who ought to be under their parents' roof-indubring in " horseplay " of a character more beneficial to the muscles than t...

THE ViGiLANs ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, MAY 2$, 1880. OUR SUPPLY OF BREADSTUFFS.

Our prim- ary object in obtaining access to these returns, at as early a date as possible, was to ascertain, and make public, figures show- ing the supply of breadstuffs now on hand in the colony, and the amount available for' export, in the hope that the information which these figures would afford, might have the effect of checking that constant importa- tion from outside which is making our home produce a drug in the local market. The produce returns cannot of course he accepted as strictly accurate, for the Go- vernment in preparing them, have to rely entirely upon the statements of the produ j cers. And when the required information was collected prior to the completion of harvest operations, the character of ...
