THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, JULY 18,1880. A LEAP IN THE DARK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 June 1880

THE ML^MMt YiGiLAXS ' et Audax ^BTH^FBLDAT, JUNE l8, 1880. . A LEAP IN THE DABIL The causes which led to the sudden and complete rout of Lobd Beacoxsfieid's Government, wouldnow seem to be seriously engaging the attention of thoughtful pol- iticians in the Mother Country, both Con- j iservatives and Liberals. Li order clearly j to understand the nature of this political j phenomenon, and to suggest a cause ex- planatory of its occiuTence, it is necessary to admit what is uiidisputably a fact-that the fall of the Conservative party came upon the country as a complete surprise. The most sanguine of Liberals hesitated to commit themselves to the expression of any more hopeful belief, than that their minority might possibly he swelled into a small majority. The vast hulk of ordinary obser- vers, ".on the other hand, were persuaded that/popular feeling was so far in . favor ,of Lord Beacoxsfield's policy, as to make his continuance in offiee-although with the ¡somewhat reduced majority w...

OUR JARRAH. TO THE EDITIOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 18 June 1880

OUR JARRAH. To the Editior of the West Australian. Sir, A great deal has been said and written at various times as to the durability of our jarrah timber, and many notable instances of ocular demonstration given of this timber having successfully withstood the ravages, of both land and marine insects for very many years. Some fine and excellently preserved specimens of jarrah have just been brought to light at Bun- bury, consisting of several logs, of various lengths and sizes; buried in the sand near the Bunbury jetty, and which were cut as far back as the year 1845, to the order of W. P. Clifton, Esq. These logs have been lying on the beach for years, exposed to the weather, at all seasons of the year - frequently submerged in water- sometimes fresh, and sometimes salt, occasion- ally wholly, and, at other times, partly buried. These logs have just been dug out of the sand, with a view of obtaining specimens from them to forward to the Melbourne Exhibition, and, in every instance,...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VlOIIAXS ET AVDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, JUNE 22, 1SS0. A FINANCIAL PROBLEM. ScABCELY a month now intervenes before the meeting of the Legislative Council, and we. already mark the usual premonitory symptoms. Electors are becoming alive to the fact that the session is elose at hand, are thinking of the requirements of their districts, and calling upon their members to take note of them, with a view to future advocacy in the House. "What is absolutely necessary must no doubt be done. But the country should bear clearly in mind the financial position in which it is placed, and exercise some self denial in regard to making calls upon the revenue not absolutely essential to local well-being. If we wish to &et our money matters straight, and to cany on the Eastern Kailway to the corn growing districts-a necessary conclusion to the step in this direction which has already been taken-nothing short of the utmost care, the most rigid economy, and a considerable amount o...

CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND DISTRICT ROAD BOARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 June 1880

CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND DISTRICT ROAD BOARDS. On Friday, the 11th inst. we published a cir- cular addressed by the Government to the j various District Boards, asking them to cooper- ate on certain terms with the Central Board and the Superintendent of Roads in carrying out the objects of the Road Loan. The follow- ing further correspondence has since then taken place between the Swan Board and the Gov- ernment : Swan, June 17th, 1880. SIE, At a special meeting' of the Swan Eoads | Board, held on the 15th inst. to consider His Ex- cellency's circular of the 3rd of June, it was una- nimously decided that I should write and in the name of the Board respectfully decline dividing any responsibility, or labour with the Government in connection with the roads. We do not consider the plan proposed an economical one, and it might prove vexatious and troublesome. We believe that the Board, unfettered, could have as good work performed for £75 as would be obtained under the ...

MR. HIGMAN GETS 'A LIFT.' TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 June 1880

MR. HIGMAN GETS 'A LIFT. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. t SIB,-I am not in tha habit of writing much for the papers, but should be glad just to say a word or two to give Mr. Higman a lift, as every one eTse seems to be finding fault with him at present. On Saturday, the 12th of this month, I had occasion to travel the road from Newcastle to Guildford, and was truly sorry to see it so much damaged by the winter rains, which are wash- ing away the gravel, cutting the drains, and making holes in all directions. But of course Mr. Higman has nothing to do with that ; poor man he cannot prevent it from raining. I ara sure if any one could prevent the road from getting wet, Mr. Higman would be the man to do it, for, though it was pouring rain at the time, and the water was streaming over the road,* his beautiful deep drains, high above'the road, were as dry as a tinder. My word ! if these drains ever should get full of water and break adrift, they will astonish the road. Per- haps t...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AN1) GENERAL. THE S. A. Register gives the follow ing re- lative to the fate of Captain Cadell, an abstract of which we published in our issue of the l4Íh inst : Mr. S.

THE REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF ROADS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 June 1880

THE BEPOBT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT " OF BOADS. To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-I have read with no little surprise Mr. Higman's report which is published in the West Australian of the 18th instant. I will leave Mr. Clarkson, and the other members of the Local Boards te defend themselves, merely commenting as an old menber of a Boads Board upon the report in general. Mr. Higman denies that there has been any general dissatisfaction at the way in which the Boad Loan money has been adminis- tered by the Government. It is curious that he Bhould really be ignorant of the general public outcry against the downright waste public of money upon his extraordinary system of drains. The state of the roads in whatever direction you go speaks for itself. It is all very well to say that the Boards are responsible for general up- keep-no money has been given them to keep the roads up with, and the mite that was doled out to them, they wero told to spend upon minor roads, as the Government ...

THE NOVELIST. A RUSSIAN KING LEAR. [From the German of Ivan Turg[?]njev.] (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 June 1880

THE NOVELIST. A RUSSIAN KINO IEAB. TFrom the German of Ivan Turgénjov.] (Continued.) I remember that when I was left alone, I wondered how on earth it was that Char lov had not done what once he threatened, and struck Sljotkin such a blow that there was " nothing of him left but a muddy pool." Also how it came to pass that Sljotkin was not afraid of such a fate. Martin Petrovitch must really have lost all spirit, I thought, and the desire grew strong within me to creep round into the Jesskov premises, and look with my own eyes at the giant, whom I could scarcely imagine broken-spirited and subdued. I had alreadyjreached the garden hedge, when suddenly, close beside me, a woodcock rose up with a loud whirr, and flew towards the wood. I hastily rose my gun, but it missed fire. This annoyed me greatly, for the bird was a beauty, and 1 determined to follow after it, and try to get another shot. So I crept on in the direction in which the woodcock had flown, and soon came upon a little o...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, June 17. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 22 June 1880

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, June 17. j The Bengal left this morning for Adelaide, with a full load of jarrah, belonging to Mr. M. 0. Davies. She also took two logs of jarrah for the Melbourne Exhibition, cut by Mr. W. P. Clifton for shipment thirty five years ago, which, not being required, were left on the beach just above high water mark, where they have remained ever since, sometimes exposed, some- times covered with drying sand, and occasion- ally under water. As timber was once plenti- ful close to the town, these logs were cut with- in five miles of Bunbury, on the sandy ground, the timber from which does not compare favor- ably with that from the ironstone hills. Be that as it may, these logs proved to be as sound as when first felled ; and when one was sawn into sleepers (two of which accompanied the logs) no one could tell, except by examining the outside, which had been exposed, or that the tim- ber had not been recently felled.

Apart fromalmostevery varietybeingexhibited, saveafew of the coarse British wools, such as Shropshire Herdwiçk. and Welsh, and others of that type, the display is of a national character, such as probably never has been concentrated before.
