NAVAL ARTILLERY GUN PRACTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 9 January 1883

NAVAL ARTILLERY QUN PRACTICE. The Naval Artillery Volunteers at Fre mantle had some gun practice on 'Wednes- day afternoon, when Colonel Angelo, Inspecting Field- Officer, accompanied by Captain Phillips, Staff Officer, was present to witness the performance. The two field pieces were drawn up on the road running under the light-house and close to the river's edge, near Arthur's Head. .There were only 22 men present, owing to the counter attractions' at the faces. The detachment -was under the command of Lieutenant Forsyth. ;'Eacb. man. in turn waB required to take a shot at a floating tar get, which appeared to be some 1800 -yards off, out at sea; after which; .two- or three rounds of canister and grape-shot were dis charged from each gun. At the conclusion of the practice the battery wai directed to fall in, when the Inspecting Field Officer made a few remarks upon the manner in which the firing had been conducted. He obaerved that he could not call the practice ' good,' but that ...

POST OFFICE MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 9 January 1883

POST OFFICE MATTERS. Sib,' — Complaints have been long and loud of the inconvenience attending the de livery of letters and papers at the General Post Office. This was well exemplified on Sunday evening In st, when, at the late hour at which the English mail was delivered, some 150 or 200- persons were in waiting, and directly the window — or perhaps it might be more appropriate to state the half window — was opened, it was literally be seiged by persons anxious to obtain their correspondence. . It has been suggested that much inconvenience might be avoided were the Post Office authorities to provide for both windows in the delivery-room to be opened to the public, convenient boxes be ing placed contiguous to each window — de- livering letters to those whose initials would come in between, say, A to M at one window and the remainder of the alphabet at the other. The public would soon accustom themselves as to which was the proper win dow for them to call for their letters, and it wo...

NOTES ON COMETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 9 January 1883

NOTES ON COMETS. The following notice of the comet now visible, and of comets generally, is supplied by Dr. Meldrum, in charge of the observa-: tory at Mauritius, and will be found inter toresting :— The question whether or not the present comet is a new one cannot be answered with any degree of probability until the elements of its orbit have been determined. Possibly it is the comet which was discovered by Pops (at Jilar seilles) on the 28th July, 18l'2, and which; was in perhelion on the 15th September, 1812. This comet ;was; supposed, to have parabolio elements, until Enke -showed that its orbit was elliptic, and that its pe riod of revolution was 70.68 years. A re cent discussion of the observations by M.M. Schallof and Bosses, assigns aporiod of 71.7 years, and, allowing for pertur bations, they inferred that the comet would return to perihelion about the middle of 1883. On the other hand, as there was considerable uncertainty with regard to tho period of revolution, they reco...

THE RAMBLER REEF. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 9 January 1883

THE RAMBLER REEF. The recent examination of the coast in the neighbourhood of Cape Leeuwin, carried out under the joint direction of the Admir alty and Colonial Marine Survey Department in H.M.S. Meda, has failed to prove the existence of the prominent danger lying off Cape Leeuwin and described on the charts as the ' Bambler Reef.' The ascertained non-existence of this danger therefore gives rise to the supposition that it is identical with Geographe Reef, whick lies much closer in shore. Staff-Commander Cogh lan, in chrrge of the survey, reports : — Rambler Reef, reported by the cutter ' Jolly Rambler' to consist of ' a cluster of rocks even with the water's edge' lying 12 or 15 miles W. S. W. from the sandpatch over Hamelin Bay, has been unsuccessfully searched for in the ' Meda.' Having stood off shore with the sandpatch ov»r Hamelin Bay bearing E.N.E., the 'Meda' sounded over and around the position reported by the 'Jolly Rambler,' and thence traversed between it and the Geogra...

The Daily News. TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1883. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 9 January 1883

Cfoe Baity ^etosf* TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1883. The spectacle of a man, who, having a large credit balance at his bankers, yet allows himself to be in want of the absolute necessaries of life would provoke, not the pity, but the scorn and . derision of his fellow men. Yet such is the course of conduct persued by the majority of the Municipal Councils in this colony. The law allows each Municipal Council to borrow money up to a certain percentage of their annual valuation, but as yet only two of these bodies — those of Perth and Albany — have had spirit enough to avail themselves of this privilege. At Fremantle, Geraldton, Newcastle and in other places the unfortunate ratepayers have for years past been londly grumbling at the disgraceful state of the roads in their several districts, and have clamoured for more liberal Government assistance towards putting those roads and etreets they have into a proper state and repair, and towards constructing new ones. Tet all the time they have the...

Cfee JBaflp #efcp^ ^HUrIjDAyTjANUARY 11, 1883. After rauch useless talk and pro longed delay another attempt — we hope a successful and final one — has been made to establish 'a 'Gf-as Com pany, ui the Uity. While tlie large towns, in Europe, America, and the Australian Colonies are considering the advisability of substituting elec tricity for gas, we have remained so far 'in' the rear of progress as to content ourselves in the inadequate light afforded by kerosene , and to render ourselves prematurely, blind by the constant -use of the guttering candle. More than six years ago an effort was made to start a G-as Company in Perth, but, owing to the arpathy of the citizens, the attempt ?was a dismal failure' ; afterwards an offer, to light the city with Needle's Gas was rejected with disdain, and an ?effort to utilise Dr. Silvester's Patent Gas resulted in the complete dis couiforture of those who .tried the experiment. But the present Com pany p'rppose ? to go to work in a straightfo...

The funeral cortdge was a magnificent spectacle, the road to the cemetery being lined with troops, 24 regiments being present. The procession comprised all the Ministers of.

The Pall Mall Gazette is adverse to the terms of the Victorian loan, and warns investors— whom it suggests should refuse to subscribe-^to teach the Government that the minimum price -fixed' is too high, and should be reduced. ?
