Farm and Station. THE POISON PLANT AND HOW TO DESTROY IT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879

¿farm nu jètetiôt THE POISON PLANT AND HOW TO DESTROY IT. We are indebted to Mr. Charles Hamersley, of the Williams River, for the following valu- able information, which cannot fail to be of immense benefit to all interested in pastoral pursuits : " For many years," Mr. Hamersley says, " I have tried to eradicate the plant known as the ' York road poison ' ; first, I tried grubbing it, but found that that plan only made matters worse, as each piece of root left in the ground became in a short time a separate plant. In the summer of 1876 I noticed that the poison plant never appears in the vicinity of salt lakes, so I determined to try how a little salt would act upon the plants. After testing seve- ral plants I found that by scraping the .earth away from the stem of the plant with a stick, and putting about half a pound of dry salt round the root, in a week the plants so treated were quite dead. I have tried this experiment for some years now, and have destroyed about 30 acres of t...

From the same point a longer chain stretches to the tree tobe pulled down, or rather pulled up. This chain is provided with movable iron rods and hooks by which it can be shortened as the strain requires. The lever is worked by a single horse, which is hitched to it by chain tra...

?b>%i Matters relating to the financial position of municipal bodies, throughout the colony,'are just now prominently displayed before rate- payers, on account of the time having come round for the presentation uf the annual statement of accounts. As regards the finan- cial affairs of onr own municipality, we are pleased to observe from the elaborate state- ments published in our ' supplement' to-day, that the finances of the city are in a very satisfactory condition. The cloud which ap- peared not long ago to hang over the affairs of the municipality has been dispersed. For the present altered and improved aspect of financial matters ia general, the ratepayers,-, we think, owe many thanks to the retiring Chairman (Mr. Parker) and the Conncil as a whole. We have every hope, and we may - add every confidence, that as long as onr civic rulers pursue their present conduct of econo- mising the municipal funds, «hile at the same time doing their best to perform the somewhat difficult ...

Summers, Smith, Vincent, Backshell, Letch, Waldock and Jewell. Financial Statement. The Chairman said he had called the meet- ing together on this the last occasion he would have the honour of presiding over their de- liberations, more particularly for the purpose of laying before them certain statements which he had prepared with a view of showing the exact financial state of the municipal funds. A balance sheet showing the receipts and ex- penditure of the council had already been pub- lished in the Government Gazette, in pursuance of the provisions of the Act; but that state- ment was not so full, and did not embrace the detailed information which he would like to see place before the ratepayers-information which it appeared to him the citizens had a perfect right to have.'

The Nobelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879

THE NOVELIST. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) At the time when our story opens; Ray- mond Ferray was thirty-four years old. Some years before, he had been jilted by the woman he loved, and was now a con- firmed misogynist. At the age when men   are most liable to severe attacks of the ten- der passion, Raymond had fiercely sworn that no woman should force her way into his heart. The opposing barrier was the immen- ity of his contempt !           He was the son of a provincial doctor, and had been left an orphan at an early age. Educated at a large Parisian lyceum, he grew up fond of poetry and science. His astonishing precocity was regarded by the professors with hardly less alarm than ad- miration. When but eighteen years old,     he knew Hebrew, Persian, Arabic. Nature had certainly intended him for the career of Orientalist. Of middle height, nervous and sinewy, deeply bronzed b...

FRENCH-MAN'S VIEW OF THE POLITICAL SITUATION IN ENGLAND. (From the Journal des Debats, Sep. 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879

FRENCH-MAN'S VIEW OF THE POLITICAL SITUATION IN ENG- LAND. (From the Journal des Débats, Sep. 22.) The Marquess of Hartington has re- cently made a speech, in which he sums up the grievances of the Opposition against the Government. We must acknowledge that the occasion is opportune, and that Lord BEACONSFIELD'S policy is passing through a thorny crisis. The inexpediency of this policy strikes every eye; that which we see less distinctly, that which is forgotten for the moment is the series of mistakes in the political career of Mr. Gladstone and Lord Hartington. Criticism is an easy task for him who has taken no step himself for years past. True it is that the Opposition have no fault of conduct to reproach themselves with, but what faults of language have they not committed ? Into what errors of judg- ment have they not fallen ? The Marquess of HARTINGTON has compared the policy of the Government to that of the Second Em- pire. The analogy, if in truth it exists, is rather in the ...

SOME PARTICULARS RELATING TO MR. A. FORRESTS LATE EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879

SOME PARTICULARS RELATING TO MR. A. FORREST'S LATE EX- EDITION. Tho. following interesting particulars relating to the expedition from which Mr. A. Forrest and his party have just returned, are taken from the Sydney Morning Herald of Nov. 6th. Pending the publication of Mr. Forrest's own official report of the expedition, the particulars here given will, no doubt, be read with interest : Mr. Alexander Forrest arrived in Sydney on the 28th October, with Mr. Fenton Hill, second in command and geologist ; Messrs. John Camp- bell, James Carey, Matthew Forrest, and Arthur Hicks, and two aboriginal natives, Dower and Pierre. The band of explorers came from Palm- erston, in the Northern Territory. Last year the Surveyor-General of West Australia succeed- ed in getting a grant towards defraying the ex- penses of a journey. The settlers gave twenty six horses, and on the 18th January last, taking provisions for six months, Forrest and his little band started from Perth to go to Port Darwin, ...

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. (Associated Press) Adelaide, December 1. Arrived, today, Charlotte Grant, from Vasse. Sailed on Saturday, Minora, for Vasse, Bun- bury, Fremantle, and Geraldton. London, Nov. 27. Mr. Gladstone has commenced his political campaign. After delivering his speech at Edinburgh he proceeded to Dalkeith, where he delivered an address. He there referred at length to the affairs of Ireland and declared himself in favor of granting a local autonomous Government to that country. The new session of the French Chambers has opened. M. Gambetta made a speech in which he urged the desirableness of following a conciliatory foreign policy, as best calculated to further the interests of France. The King of Denmark is paying a visit to the Emperor of Germany. Davitt, the ex-Fenian, has been committed for trial. There is a growing belief that it is the in- tention of Russia to pursue a pacific policy for the future, both in Europe and Asia. The promised reforms of Prince Gortschak...

Correspondence NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. Mr. Carey and " A Late Member."—In reply to ' A Late Member,' we simply re- peat the statement we made on the 21st Nov. 'A Late Member,' is quite right when he says that " both the gentlemen connected with the management of the West Australian know perfectly well what Mr. Carey did say in connection with Mr. Blackwoods name." Mr. Carey said : " As an illustration of the inadvisability " of continuing this practice (allowing offi- " cers in the Survey Department to hold " land), I might state that a certain gentle- "man—Mr. Blackwood—went to the Sur-   "vey office the other day, intending to "take up land, but he found that the " whole of the land he required had al- " ready been taken up by the gentleman "mentioned in the return from which I " have just quoted." On Thursday, the 20th Nov., the following telegram was re- ceived from Mr. Blackwood : " Carey's statement is untrue. I never made any application for pastoral lands—A. R...

THE LAW OF COMPENSATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 December 1879

THE LAW OP COMPENSATION. To the Editob op the West Australian. Snt,-" Bush-lawyer" has drawn the atten- tion of the public, through your columns, to the wording of the 20fch section of the 42nd Viet., No. 31. As it stands printed, the section is certainly neither clear nor equitable, for the more correct a claimant is in his valuation, the more costs he has to pay.' I imagine there must have been a mistake made in the draw- ing up or printing the section alluded to, and that the word " offered " should be inserted in place of the word " claimed." The equity and sense of the whole clause is then at once visible, whereas now it is difficult to find much of either in the section. In case readers may not have the Act to refer to, I subjoin the whole section, the word "claimed" being italicised wher¿ the word " offered " would be prefer- able : " All the costs of any such arbitration " and incident thereto to be settled by the " arbitrators shall be borne by the Commis " sioner, unless t...

TELEGRAPHIC INTELLIGENCE. [Associated Press.] London. November 28. The agitators in Cork have threatened to attack a powder magazine, and the guards have consequently been .doubled. The Albanians have massacred Ahmed Mukh tar Pasha, but the report is denied. Mr. Killen, the barrister, has been committed to take his trial ou a charge of sedition. The marriage of the Kiug of Spain to the Arch- duchess Marie Christian of Austria was celebrat- ed to-day. Mr. Gladstone, at a meeting in Midlothian, said he was determined to storm Sir Stafford Northcote's fortress. He said that the waste of money by Government in all departments mani- fested itself everywhere. The state of siege which was declared after the attempt on the Emperor of Germany's life has been prolonged for a year. The Government are taking steps for the for- mation of a reserve force in Canada of three thousand men. The force will be engaged for active service, not only in the Dominion but abroad.

Dear Sir,-Your paper is, I believe, open and willing to represent fairly and impartially all sections of the community. I am pleased at this, for I consider that hitherto the landed "and pastoral interests have been unrepresented, or rather misrepresented, by our public jour- nals; We need go no further back than the 8th'and 22nd inst., on which dates your con- temporary the Herald makes some very wild and absurd statements in speaking of the land laws of this colony. It is to be regretted that a journalist should, either through motive or ignorance, express opinions calculated to raise a party feeling between different classes of the community. The Herald represents the squatter as being in the i position of a " dog in the manger," as having* a lot of good things and being unable or unwilling to use them himself or allow others to do so. Now I do not know where the Herald, gets its information from...
