A NEW MINERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 3 May 1893
A NEW MINERAL. ? o ? The Adelaide Observer of the 1st ult. has the following : — Some five weeks since the Registrar of the School of Miues (Mr. J, J. East, F.G-.S.) was waited upon by Mr. Knox Brown, of- Bunbury, Western Australia, who had brought over with him samples front the tinne'lds near Greenbushes, -with the objeet or ascertaining rue most suit able plant for dressing the ore to a con dition fit for market. The tinfield at Greenbushes is an alluvial one, and is worked by a number of prospectors, who, for want of water sufficient for sluicing work, are idle nearly nine months in each year. The sluiced tin ore appeared to the miners of fair, even character, as rogards freedom from associated minerals, and it was therefore with some amount of. surprise and disappointment that Mr. Brown and his friends found that the assay values of the ore shipped to Mel bourne for sale varied in a most irregular manner.

[From our Owx Correspondent.] i Perth, Monday. ^The National Bank closed its doors this morning under instructions from ? the head office in Melbourne, but opened again immediately under re construction for the receipt of deposits on the same lines as the Commercial Bank.

It is considered that this colony will suffer severely on account of the number of accounts from Perth, the stoppage of which will materially affect the solvency of the city. The local manager says he has 22s. in bullion for every £ owing by the bank. It is understood that this colony has nothing to do with the cause of the suspension. Later.

Vasse. VASSE, Saturday. [Newspaper Article] — Bunbury Herald — 3 May 1893
Vasse. — 9, — [From our Corkespondsnt.'] Vasse, Saturday. We are, it appears, to have our Public Works shelved for awhile. Some time ago it was notified that tenders would be called at once for the building of the new Commonage bridge, but now it appears that in consequence of some pet scheme not being able to be carried out in the building of the bridge, the work c m not be continued until after the water goes down next summer, noth with- standing that the present bridge has been built on bed logs, and has stood some twenty odd winters without being disturbed. The present author ities have got the idea into their heads that the stone requires loosen ing and removing so that the bed-logs may be set into the ground and cemented, for which purpose the Works Department has instructed Mr. Reed to carry out this work^bjut in consequence of the water being up about the bridge, it cannot be done. In the meantime, the settlers and townpeople must run the risk of meeting with an accident unt...
