THE COBURG TRAGEDY. /j Our last summary number, writes the vi Argus, contained a narrative of theextia- -"?§ ordinary domestic tragedy at Coburg, a Jj northern suburb ot this city. It will be . remembered that a little girl named Ethel *i May Hampton was murdered by her f mof her and sister w liil¡»t apparently under < the influence of some strange form of ? maDia. Dr. Cutt«, jun., of Coburg, has ^ compiled the following interesting history ^A of this remarkable case:-"For many ** months they had all been under the con- % tiolofa secret iufinence, the nature of 'Í which they were unable to define with any ' | accuracy.

THE BANKING QUARTERLY RETURNS. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

«" THE BANKING QUARTERLY RETURNS. I FKOM THE WEST AUSTBALIAN. Delay in furnishing statistics seems to be the rule in Western Australia. It is to be assumed therefore that no ,r" special ground of complaint should be found in the fact that the Banking 4 Sum mary of this colony for the quarter ,, ondiug .December, 1865, has only just ? made its appearance m the Government Gazette. Enquiries have, to our know* ledge, come for these figures from persons interested in them in the Eastern Colonies, and this long post- ponement in their publication assured- ly sueras a matter which should be avoided if possible. Hitherto we have looked for them within a month, after date. The returns for last June quarter were Gazetted within three weeks. In the present instance more than double that period has elapsed between the closing of the books for the year, and the giving to the public the ofiioial summary of the Liabilities and Assets of Hie banks of the colony. , Once the full returns have got in...

AT THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. (FROM THE ARGUS.) THE DEFENCE OF KING GEORGE'S SOUND. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

AT THE FEDERAL COUNCIL. , - V (FaoM the Argus.) ' The Defence of King Geobge's Sound. Mr. J. G. Lee-Steere moved- j " That this Council, considering that the un- | defended position of the important strategic-1 al point of King George's Sound would be a «ource of great uneasiness and general weakness to Australia in time of war, and that the protection of the Sound and Princess Boyal Harbor is of high importance to the security of the Australian colonies, is of opinion that some united action should be taken by the Imperial Government and the various colonies, with a view to their arriving at a decision which will enable the question to be dealt with at the next session of Coun- cil ; and that the advisability of the erection and maintenance of a lighthouse and signal- ling station at Cape Leuwin, to be united by telegraph with King George's Sound, should j be considered in connection with the forti- ' cation of that place." He said the colonies last year felt a sense of great insec...

MELBOURNE TEA-TABLE TALK. AUTUMN FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

I ! MELBOURNE TEA-TABLE TALK. I -. - |By E. C] Autumn Fashions. Walking-dresses will be made very plainly next autumn. Large plaits will still be popular. Draperies will be worn falling straight down the hack; and plaiu tight-fitting jackets. Indoor gowns are being made slightly longer. Some walking-dresses shown at a lead- ing drapery house in Melbourne, the other day, were composed of no less than five different kinds of material. These were se well blended that the effect was very good. Tucked skirts are again fashion- able. One of these dresses, made of a soft fawn fabric, was tucked from the bottom of the skirt to the waist, begin- ning with a wide tuck, and gradually de- creasing in width. The tucks were edged with wooden tags. The bodice was very short and dotted all over with these wooden ornaments. A charming ball toilette shown at the same house had a plain petticoat of green velvet, over which fell a flounce of pale blue spotted gauze edged with cream lace, with a tiny pa...

CRICKET AS SHE IS SPOKE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

CRICKET AS SHE IS SPOKE. TO THE EdITOE. Sib,-Unfortunately for me I was not able to witness the match New Nor- cia v. M.C.C.-the most extraordinary cricket match of this era ¡anywhere, but most decidedly the most, extraordinary ever played in this colony, I learn this from accounts I read in the news- papers, and there seem to me to be several matters to clear up to relieve my anxious mind and enlighten me on the game of cricket as played in Perth. First I am dviug to know what is the meaning of the expression, " Two maidens were gone through." Then some fearful accident must have occurred, as we read, "Death to Walley, however, soon fol- lowed." Can it be possible that the cap- tain of the New Norcians wears stays or at times leaves his vertebrae at home P for it is gravely recorded that "Lefroy then took his back in." A reward ot 5s. will be given for a con- strue of the following sentence (some one please reply at once, and relieve an aching head) : " His third in fear one is, a ...

A Crushed Revolt. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

A Crushed Revolt. J Fiji has recently had a local " El i Mahdi scare. " The disturbance took 1 place among some Ra natives. The pro- phets-ior there were several of them declared that two sons of Degei, the Fi- jian Jupiter, had appeared to them, and commissioned them to reorganise the Go- vernment. The Fijian Jove, it appears, was dissatisfied will the state of affairs. In response to the " prophets'" appeal, a magnificent army of 30 recruits was raised, armed with muskets, and drilled ou the latest and most improved system. When they had attained as they thought the proper amount of training for sol- diers, they marched upon a town in the Viti Levu mountains, and took possession of it. There they commenced to preach a crusade against the Government Un- fortunately for the reformers, the Go- vernment .behaved with great prompti- tude. A special commissioner was ap- pointed to deal with the matter, and he was supplied with a sufficient force of men. Tue crusaders were taken prisoner...

Indiscriminate Immigration. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Indiscriminate Immigration. It will be observed from our English telegrams in connection with the late outbreak of the unemployed, that the at- tention of the Imperial Government has been directed to the necessity for devis- ing some measures for relieving the pres- sure of surplus population at home. For the last fifty years the population of Eng- land has been increasing faster than any European country and as fast if not foster than its resources. Emigration has ordinarily been found to afford a remedy for over population. But a dis- couraging feature in the present crisis is that, of late, when the need of immigra- tion has been so pressingly felt, there has been a diminution in the total number of emigrants leaving England. This cir- cumstance is doubtless chiefly due to the check to industrial development ex- perienced in the United States and ;. Canada, which are so readily accessible to poorer emigrants. The subject having within the past few days been pressed upon the Imper...

Mongolophobia in America. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Mongolophobia in America. In 'Frisco John Chinaman is not re farded- with favour. They refuse to elieve that he is a law-abiding, thrifty, and an industrious individual. The belief that association with the European or the American would elevate his moral charac- ter has been crushed to death. A com- mission appointed to. enquire into the social condition of the Chinese population of San Francisco have recently issued a report in which they point out a number of evils which they allege are menacing the State, these evils all proceeding of course from the Chinese quarter. The number of bouIb-to quote the census term i -is taken as 30,000, and that number is | reached by a curious method. The com I mission counted the number of bunks in the hovels, and finding the total to be 15,180, they multiplied that total by 2, and gave the result as the approximate number of beings. The Commission sup- poses that the only way for the State to rid itself of such an undesirable element will be to ...

Royalist Credulity. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Royalist Credulity. The Paris " XIXeme Siècle " gives some curious particulars of an adventurer, who lately died in London, styling himself " Prince Louis Marie Ces&r of Bourbon, grandson of Ferdinand VII of Spain." He appeared at Paris in 1869 under the name of Comte Blanc, being accompanied by his sister, Patrooinio, the famous stigmatio, and by a Dominican monk, eonfessor to Queen Isabella. The husband of the Queen treated him as a kinsman, and the Queen herself wrote to him as " Dear Nephew." During the siege Comte Blanc, while parading himself at one of the ambulances, was recognised by a lead- ing Pari* photographer as a son-in-law whom he had dismissed for misconduct. In 1871 he made the acquaintance of a rich English widow,daughter of one of the First Napoleon's aides-de-camp. She pitied him, sympathized with his project of regenerating Spain, and advanced him 300,000fr. Blanc thereupon settled at Jurangon, near Pah, in a splendid villa, built by an aged Legitimist w...

WíM w& liMiw:. " If man wants to own the earth, what does woman want ?" inquired Mr. Grab of his better-half. "Well, my dear," responded that lady in a gentle, smothering tone, " to own the man, I suppose." Jack : " Do take my arm, Maggie !" Maggie : " Thanks, I'd rather have your hand." Jack : " Would you ? Then take it; you've got my heart already " (Blushes, ex- planations, strange sounds among the heather.) A very polite gentleman meeting a boy in the street, said : " My dear boy may I in- quire where Robinson's shop is ?" " Cer- tainly Bir," said the boy, very respectfully. After waiting a few minutes, the gentleman said, " Well, my boy where is it ?" " I' re not the least idea," said the urchin. " Talk abaut a dog not having reason !" exclaimed the ruddy faced man. "Why, there's Ponto. He can't speak to bo sure ; but Lord love you, he knows every whit as much as I do."

THE NATIVE QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

THE NATIVE QUESTION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,-As you have apparently de- cided that the Rev. Mr. Gribble is the aggressor and the settlers of the Gascoyne the aggrieved parties in the quarrel for which our colony is just now notorious,, you will perhaps allow a few words on the other side by way of analysis of the evidence so far placed before the reading public. _ The fact that there ia a large proportion of our people who are con- vinced that there is something radically wrong in the relationship between the blacks and the squatters justifies tho demand for something more than in- vective against Mr. Gribble for want of prudence, etc. That conviction has been created by the extraordinary phenomena which the case furnishes. First we have a whole community of professedly Christian people -- to use the common hyperbole-moving heaven and earth to secure the expulsion of the first Christian minister who has attempted to settle in their midst, and that minister not a novice, but one who has ...

NEW NORCIA VERSUS M.C.C. The match between the team of cricket- ers hailing from Bishop Saivado's mission .at New Norcia and the Metropolitan C.C was played on Saturday. Mr. H. B. VXjgfioy agaiu captained the New Norcians. -'indeed, it is to a very great extent due to Mr. Lefroy's generous efforts that the natives carry on the game of cricket with «utfh marked success. He teaches aud trains them and always accompanies them in their match playing visits to the city. Mr. George Parker, who has for so long .held the chief place in the teams of the M.C.C. again had command. More than «sually complete arrangements liad been made for che match. A ring had been marked off in the field by means of flags bearing the M.C.C. colours, for the pur- pose of keeping the people from encroach- ing upon the playing ground. Great paius had been expended upon the pitch, which for days previously had been level- led and rolled and which, perhaps, was m -a more perfect condition thau for any match in the...

THE NEW NORCIANS V. UNION CRICKET CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

THE NEW NORCIANS V. UNION CRICKET CLUB. - Mr. Lefrcy's team of native cricketers played a match on Monday on the Recrea- tion Ground against the union C.C. The affair, however, was of a very one-sided character throughout, the natives being very much the superior team. They scored 65 in their first innings, Yrbel play inn a good game for 31. With the exception of Brown and Moffatt, who scored 5 and 7 respectively the Unions made no show whatever at the batting crease. Their last five wickets fell for as many ducks, Queermarra on this oc- casion being the most effective bowler. The analysis for this innings showed tbe following results. Maher 60 balls ; 5 maiden overs ; 8 runs ; 3 wickets-Queer- marra 60 balls ; 9 maidens ; 8 runs ; 7 wickets. The New Norcians in their second innings made the biggest score ever registered, we believe, in any match yet played in Western Australia. The bowling was fairly collared by most of the batsmen and such fine scores as Yrbel's 28 ; Blurton's 48 ...

Bringing Up A Prince. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

Bringing Up A Prince. The Crown Prince of Prussia was always a ~rery sensible man in the management of his ¿oasehold, and he is ably seconded by his wife. On one occasion the governor of his chil- dren came to him and said : " Your High- ness, I must complain of the little Prince ; he refuses to have his faco washed in the morning." " Does he ? " answered the Crown Prince. " We'll remedy that. After this let him go unwashed." " It shall be done," said the gorernor. Now the sentries have to salute every member of the royal family-children and _U-whenever they pass. The day after the little 4-year old prince went out for a walk with his governor. As they passed a sentry box, where a grim soldier stood, the man stood rigiu without presenting arms. The little prince-accustomed to universal de- ference-looked displeased, but said nothing. Presently another sentry was passed. Nei- ther did this one give a sign of recognition. The little prince angrily spoke of it to his old governor, and ...

SPORTING GOSSIP [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

SP0KT1TO GOSSIP (BY VINDEX). The New Norcian team of cricketers, daring their visit here, created quite a sensation amongst the local players. In the first match which they played they were fairly beaten by Fremantle, but it must he remembered that, so far, the victorious team has shown championship form for the season. Then they played the M.C.C. last Saturday. The mutch maybe looked upon as the most sensational in the history of the Colonv. For some years now the M.C.C. has had vhe leading -the all conquering team-but this season has seen her flag twice lowered, first by Fremantle and now by the natives. The M.C.C. went down in their lirst innings " for 13, but before they are condemned for what, on the face of it, seems wretched play, the character of the bowling must ne remembered Johnny Maher, who took the great majority ot the wickets in this innings, was trundling in brilliant fashion. He li«s a capital method of delivery, pitches the ball a nice length, and «an put them in w...

The day selected this year was as pleasant as a cool breeze, tempering the torrid weather we have lately been enduring, could ren- der it, and completed the enjoyment of the visitors who thronged in large num- bers to the hospitable homestead. Amuse- ments, such as cricket matches, flat races, and round games kept the young people agreeably occupied, the Newcastle band under the leadership of Mr. Marris dis- coursing popular music at intervals and most, pleasantly enlivening the procédings The bazaar, under the management of Mrs. Phillips and other ladies, was held in the old mill house, gaily decorated for the occasion with flags and bunting.

A THIEF CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 February 1886

A THIEF CHASE.   BY LUKE SHARP. I once told an expectant public bow how I fell among theives in London. I now propose to relate an incident of similar nature in which I took a some- what active part. The occurence, although it happened near Detroit, has never before been reported for a Detroit paper. I was living at that time in Walkerville. There is no accounting for the freaks of a person who will live in Walkerville, so one Sunday night I went to church. Why I did so I have never since been able to satisfactorily explain to myself, but anyhow the result taught me a lesson that I have never ceased to profit by. When I got back to my room I found everything in confusion. My trunk had been broken open, things " of no value except to the owner" were scattered around on the floor, and articles that were valuable to both owner and thief were taken. Un- fortunately I boarded with a Christian family who were all addicted to church-going, and so the thief had ample opportunit...
