WRECK OF THE " BATTOE BASSIT The following particulars, kindly furnished by the captain of the Dutch brig Battoe Bassi, recent- ly wrecked on the southern coast of this colony, have been placed at our disposal for publication : " Sailed from Fjilajay, Java, on the 30th April, 1880, laden with sugar, and bound to Melbourne, all in good order and properly fitted for the voy- age. Continued without experiencing any diffi- culty until the 14th May, when, in Lat. 24.22 S. and Long. 102.41 E. we encountered a severe gale, the vessel labouring heavily, and the seas break- ing over, fore and aft. On so\inding the pumps, it was found necessary to work thom every two hours. The following day it fell a dead calm, and all continued well, with steady breeses, until the 22nd May, when, in Lat. 22.4 S., and Long. 108.30 E., the barometer fell fast, and the wind increased to a heavy gale at midnight, the ship labouring heavily and leaking considerably, which necessi- tated the pumps being kept goin...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. LONDON WOOL MARKETS. The European Mail of May 21st, says : The at- tendance from all parts continues good, and prices remain much on a par with those ruling at the date of our last issue. Messrs. Jacomb, Son & Co. i port :--" The sales of the first week or so of the present series were characterised by an extraordi- narily large attendance of Coutineuia], and especi- ally of French buyers, whose ea^er competition. strengthening day by day (assisted but little by the home trade), established an averaged advance in all merino wools of 10 per cent, on our February March values-a larger rise than bad been gener- ally anticipated on those rates. The home trade have been operating a little more freely of late, but more than half the quantity sold has been taken for export. Of the total catalogued, about 10,000 bales have been bought in, and of that a large propor- tion has since been placed. As compared with February-March auctions, we quote the prices of ...

LOXDOX, June 23. The House of Commons has been en- gaged for two nights debating whether Mr. Bradlaugh shall be permitted to take his seat on making an affirmation, ,or whether he shall be required to take 'the customary oath. Mr. Labouchere (Mr. Bradlaugh'» colleague) formally moved that the latter should be permitted to take his seat without subscribing to the oath of allegiance ; where- upon an animated debate ensued, continuing for two evenings, and terminating this morning. Mr. Gladstone and several pro- minent members of the Cabinet supported Mr. Labouchere's motion. Many other members of the Liberal carty also took the same view ; but, on a division being taken, the House...

THE "VICTORIAN REVIEW." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 June 1880
THE "VICTORIAN REVIEW." THE success of the Victorian Review is now as- sured, and the handsome, well got up, and well written periodical is a credit to Australia. In appearance it even surpasses its model, the Nineteenth Century ; audits contents, in regard to which there was at first much left to be de- sired, steadily improve in character, are of very varied interest, and display for the most part considerable literary ability. Not only colonial writers, but also distinguished Englishmen and foreigners contribute toits pages. In the June number, last to hand, the most interesting paper is by a French politician, M. DE FEBBOX, on " The Question of Two Chambers.'' In strongly advocating the bi-cameral system, M. DE FEE BOX takes up a somewhat novel position. In the State, he says, there are always two forces, essential to its welfare and its progress. Call the two parties by what names you like-Whigs and Tories, Democrats and Republicans, Liber- als and Conservatives, the tendencies...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. WE are requested to draw attention to the sale advertised« to take place at Strawberry Hill, tomorrow (Wednesday) and the following day.

MR. CLARKSON IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 June 1880
MR. CLARKSON IN REPLY. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAR SIR,-In your issue of the 18th ins t., Mr. Hignian, the Superintendent of Roads, in a letter addressed, to the Director of Public Works, charges me with " mis-stating and per- verting" facts. I fear that in shifting these charges from my own shoulders, 1 shall place them upon Mr. Higman's. In the first place, by reference to my letter of the 8th inst., you will see that I wrote 40s. and 44s., (which it appears was quite correct), and that 46s. was a typographical error, not of my making. Mr. Higman says, "the gravelling done by the " Toodyay Board last year was a light coat for " repairs, part of it thrown from the side of the road to the centre." This is a ' mis-statement.' Not one shovelful was thrown from the side of the road. It was a coat six inches in the centre, tapering to three on the outer edges, and was carted, for the most part, half a mile. The Board being composed of non-scientific men, had an idea that ...
NORTHAM TABLE TALK. " Let it serve for table talk, Then, howso'er thou speakest, among other things, I shall digest it." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 29 June 1880
NORTHAM TABLE TALK. " Let it serve for table talk, Then, howso'er thou speakest, among other things, I shall digest it." The weather continues all that can be desired for ploughing, grubbing, and lambing operations. Sowing is nearly completed, and I think a much larger breadth of land is under crop here than for many years past. And I am glad to add that the slovenly mode of farming so common while the sandalwood trade was lampant, has nearly disap- peared, to the great gain of all concerned. I have often thought that our agricultural socie- ties would do a good work by introducing, and spreading among our country population, some I papers devoted exclusively to the agricultural and j pastoral interests. Many useful hints would, I am certain, be found. As it is, our farmers are left, in a manner, to grope on in the dark as to the im- provements that are being made in the mode of I farming and farming implements in other and more populous countries. The best paper of this nature that...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILAXS EI AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, JZ^NE2Q,1S80^ NOMINATED MEMBEES OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THE three gentlemen, who-as we an- nounced last week-have accepted seats as nominated members of the Legislative Council, are all well-known and respected colonists, and none of them novices to our political life. As such they will he wel- comed, although-as we have said on a former occasion-the importance which should properly attach to these nominated seats is very much lessened in public esti- mation on account of the unsatisfactory conditions under Avhich they are commonly supposed to he held. When we see gentle- men such as Mr. BUKOKS, Mr. PAIIKEH, and Mr. KAXSELX-men respected and self-respecting-accepting membership of this kind, we can only arrive at the con- clusion that a nominated seat, in their opinion, is-in practice-a less unsatisfac- tory position than, viewing it from a merely theoretical standpoint, one would he led to suppose. This opinion, to a great ...

THE NOVELIST. A RUSSIAN KING LEAR. nFrom the German of Ivan Turgénjov.] (Continued.) "And I put up with everything," Charlov went on, "though bitterly, oh, how bitterly I felt it! Shame came over me, so deep, that, had I been able, I would have shut my eyes upon God's world. That was why, lady, I did not wish to come, when you sent for me ; it was on account of this shame, this disgrace. I tried everything that I could. I remonstrated kindly with them. ; I threatened ; I tried to stir np their cou Éciences ; I bowed myself before them ; I entreated them ;-but all to nopurpose. And 1 bore all this ! At first, iudeed, I had other thoughts. To root them out neck and crop was my purpose-to destroy them, to punish them. But time brought resig- nation. It is a cross, I thought, with which God has burdened me, that it may lead nie to prepare for death. And, then, suddenly -to-day-like a dog !-And who did it ? Yolodjka !
