THEATRE COMIQUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
TIHEATRE COMIQUE. The Company haive achieved a great success. The Burlesque of "Villikins and his Dinah," has drafvn bumping houses. night after night numbers being unable to obtain admission. The company were but languidly received on their first arrival in the Colony, principally in conse quence of their coming not having been previously announced. They have,however, gone on stead ily increasing in public favor, and in their last new piece, have created a~ 4eur. Nothing in the way of Dramatic representation ever at tempted here has equalled the success of Villi kins and his Dinah. The characters were beau tifully dressed, and the acting throughout, every thing that could be desired. The songs and dances produidexncore aftr encore whiche~wre in every instance willingly responded to by the actors. I iss Louise Arnot, as Villikins, acted and sang in a style that elicited unbound ap plause, and fully confirmed the opinions ex pressed bytheAustralian and American press re specting her ...
PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
e . PUBIC WORKS ... Wte hear , !itlittle of what is going- on in the ruraldistricts. The Town Hall at Perth is progressing and.will:certainly be a handsome structure when finished. It is however ab sorbihg an amiount of labor and moiley that niight havebeen better laid out on works of greater utility. What use it may be converted to, we cannot say. but it is pretty certain it will not be used as a market, though we hear an attemljt will be made to compel its use by prohibiting the.hawking of vegetables, fish &e., about the streets. The works at the mouth of the river:are.. sifppposed to be.going on. A large number of men are employed, but the closest scrutiny fails -to' discover any beneficial results; on the contrary the navigation of the riveris declared by the boatmen, to be worse than ever, and if the works are continned, we are. assured it will in a short time be impossible to enter or leave the river without getting on to some sand bank or other thrown up in con sequen...
CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
CRICKET. On Monday the 20th, the long looked for match between the Perth and Fre mantle Elevens came off on the exercise ground at Fremantle. From an early hour successive arrivals heralded the advent-6f the Perth Eleven. Great anxiety had been felt as to the part the elements would take; to the great delight of all, the clouds cleared away, and one. of the most propitious days of our fine-climate confirmed the hopes of the sanguine, and' dissipated the fears of the desponding. Shortly, after ten c'clock the Perth Eleven, banners flying, and cheering lustily, in one of Mr. DeLeech's best ap pointed Van's galloped down the High Street venltre ' terre, whirled round the corner of Cliff Street, determined this time to win the Honors of tihe field. They were received with a hearty wel coine by their opponents, no less confident of adding another to their many previous victories. Fremantle went in for their first in nings iand owing'to the superior batting of Dr. 4tfield, who scored 34 t...
COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
COMMERCIAL. We have nothing of any consequence to note since our last. Business remains much the same but as the winter months aipproadh and shipping falls off, it will begin to decline. We understand an Insurance Company is about being formed but'have'not as yet seen the pro spectus, or heard anything for certain. ACom pany has been formed witr a capital of £'2,000 in .£5 shares, for the purpose of laying down a booderi tramway from the Jetty at the Irwin to the Dungarra a distance of 4 miles. The shares, wve believe have been nearly all alloted. We have every.reason to tlink it will return a good dividend-and no doubt lead to the con struction of similar lines in other places. Such Cdmpanies may undertake the .laying down short lines of this description, but it is down right ndoisense, anid argues an utter ignorance of the subject to suppose a Company could be formed in this Colony with capital sufficient to lindertake.the construction of lines of such a length asfoim Guildford to...

SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS We resume our monthly duty of chronicling what has occurred since our last outgoing sum mary. We have evident indications of coming social upheavings, in all directions there is a spirit abroad which must ultimately eventuate in the old crust breaking up, and new formations succeeding. If we are not actually in a state of transition, we are in full expectaiion of, and making preparations for its approach: First, and as a condition precedent to social advancement, is a charige from the Govern ment of one man to that form of Government. which will embody public opinion, admit of free discussion not only' of the acts of the Go verning powers, but allow of and encourage liberty of speech, and convey along with these most valued privileges a right to initiate such measures as may appear necessary for the pub lic weal, in short a Representativeform of Go vernment, suited to a young community and tempered by limitations, which as we progress may be gradually removed, ...
AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
AMUSEMENTS. have been confined to the performances of the company-of the Theatre Comique. The com pany has given several representati6n in Fre mantle, which we regret to say were not as well attended as might have been expected consider ing the attractive programmes put out, and the care and:talent desplayed in the get up and per formance of the pieces. Times are xiot quite what they used to be-money is somewhat scarce, and to these causes must be attributed the meagre attendance-besides a population of 2,000 will not furnish large audiences at even 3s. and 2s. admission. The company has, in dividually, in public and private, made them selves favorites,and all who know them will wish them su~cess when they leave liU:
ADVERTISING AS A MORAL DUTY! A NEW VIEW OF THE SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 April 1868
ADVERTISING AS A MORAL DUTY I A NEW VIEW OF THE SUBJECT. Someyears ago it was proposed by an Ameri can physician that members of the Faculty should advertise their remedies and modes of treating diseases in the newspapers. It was a bold and manly idea. It was scouted, however, by the profession generally, as infra dig. But is there any degradation in publicity ? Is it not rather the great touch-stone that vies preten sions and universalises the practical benefits of all valuable inventions and discoveries? Should not a profession that aims at the mitigations of of suffering and the preservation of life make the means of attaining these grand objects known through the channel of information most accessible to all classes and conditions-the columns of the public press ? If it declines to do so, the natural inference is, either that the de sire of secrecy arises pfrom a sordid, monopoli sing, egotistic spirit, or from a lack of faith in its own prescriptions. Viewing the subject in thi...

Amicus-We cannot inform you whether Mr. G. E. Hampton returned in the Police Van, which conveyed him to the Sound on his depar ture. CORRESPONDENT-We quite agree with you that. the expression "that the Inspector Mr. Logue found the flocks on the Williams River excep tionally clean which is to be attributed to simultaneously dipping them" is unintelligible. Such passages have been designated " infirm English, and caused great fun amongst the Adelaide Editors-" we presume that the Editor of the P.

THE GOLDFIELDS OF AUSTRALIA. An official compilation has~ een published of the produce of the Australian. goldfields during the last fifteen years.

TRADE OF SAN FRANCISCO. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 May 1868
TRADE OF SAN FRANCISCO. We (San Francisco Bulletin): aie able to state that the import trade in 1866 amounted to about 14,000,000,dol. an increase of 3,600, 000dol. over 1865. The export trade was the largest ever known in the history of Sau Fran cisco, being 17,280,000dol. or ai increase of ?,700,000dol. over 1865, Of the total amount, last year, 11,800,000dol. was for California prdductions. To this amount the cereal crops coit-ibtiied 6,747,000,do601. and the mines 2,577, 000. About 3,000,0001b of wool was used by local mills during the year. This amount, it is thought, will be increased one-founth the present year. The exports of treasure were 44,300,000,dol. which is about the same as for the preceding year. The amount of treasure produced in California and Nevada is not definitely ascertained, as the returns are not yet all in; but it will not be far from 50,000, 000,dol.
SCRAPS. RITUALISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 May 1868
SCRAPS. RITUALISM. The following graphic description appears. in an article under tins head in the Edinbnbrgh Review, just published:-" Sir Walteir Scott used to tell, with much zest, a story of a man who used to frighten his friend by encounter ing him at midnight on a lonely spot which was supposed to be the resort of a ghostly? visitant. He took his seat on the haunted stoiie wrapped.in a long white sheet.' Pre sently; to his horror; the real ghost appeared and sat down beside him, with the ominous ejaculation, 'You are a ghost, and. I am a ghost, let us come closer and closer together;' and closer and closer theghost pressed, tillk the sham ghost, overcome with terror, fainted. away. This, we fear, is the fate which awaits the Ritualist imitators of the Church of Rome.. That mighty ghost,-' the ghost of the -de ceased Roman Emnpire,'-the ghost of the dead Middle Ages,-will press closer and closer ;to our poor dressed-up ghost, till the greater. absorbs the lesser, or deprives it...

MASONRY. " My good friends I'll tell you how it is.". " I'll tell you how it is." said a little gray-haired man, with a calm-looking countenance, as he sat on a bench under a tree, near a cottage, with several people around him, who appeared to listen with respect and attention to every word that fell from 'hislips ' " I'll tell you how it. is, there is no such thing as being happy together in this world withouti a good hope of a better. When the sun shines, and we have our health, and our barrel of meal and our cruse of oil are full, and we have many friends, we get on toler able well, but how is it with us when things are otherwise; when the sky is overcast, when our health and strength fail us, when our cruse and barrel are empty, and our friends walk away from us, and leave: us to ourselves.?

THE STORY-TELLER. . THE LIGHIHOUSE GIRL. CHA.PTER IV. S DESTINY. -rom the effects of that night it was long -before Ferdinand Hamilton re covered. Brain, heart, nerves had been strained far too much to easily return to\their normal condition. But at length he was able to return home. Of his first and second love, Annie Lockwood, he dared not 'inquire. He had heard that Miss Arlington had left as soon as she learned he was out of danger; heard her called a heartless flirt; and, hard as it was,.he kept his own secret. Would he dare to see her again? Would he, after the fatal visit to the lighthouse, dare to look her in the face. His love intensified and purified by suf fering, hourly urged him to do so. He knew that his entire life's happiness was at stake, but yet he shrank from the or deal. Still, although he saw her not, he found no peace until he had visited her guardian, and learned the history of the few past years. The story he heard was a simple one. Years before the death of ...
