To the Editorof The Herald. SIR, In the last number, of the Inquirer I read a letter concerning the plan of opening at Perth an Orphanage for female children of the Pro testant persuasion. The writer speaks very highly of the Roman Catholics of this Colony for setting a good example to their fellow-colo n-ts iri the line of benevolent enterprise. .We all, I am sure, feel thankful for the praise, on pccoutmof tbhecrditthat is reflectedfonour Church, 'i &bad tree cannot bring forth g6od fruit," but while accountingforthe edifyingfact, the writer enumerates various causes,among which there is one, which has created surprise and curiosity in me and in many others. We are said to have orthodox modes'of levying needful contributions from every member of the Church. Now Sir, I should be exceedingly obliged to you or any one else, who will have the kindness to point out to me what these orthodox modesare. I am just engaged in bringing to completion my Church of St. Patrick in this t...

If there's one muskito on a farm it .finds out. thin-akia and worries him, and makes his life-sretched, a keep in' him constantly busya flappin his face and clappin' his hands a tryin' to keep the animal off, or to crush it.

To the.Editor of Th'e Herald. SIR, . Any man woit has attended the Agricultural Meetings of the Colony must have noticed the one sided selfishness thatgenerally prevails.

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 16 May 1868

:ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. Much that is interesting has occurred ir England since our last summary. Our contemporary the TIquirer, annoiunced in its summary, of the last month's mail the formation of the new ministry with Lord Cranbourne as Chancellor of the Exchequer, we on the other hand asserted, that such a compromise between the new Premier and his old colleague would have been damaging to the reputation of both statesmen, and lead to the over throw of the cabinet. Mr. Disraeli consistently at all events has formed a cabinet out of the old, only substituting Lord Cairns for Lord Chems ford, as Chancellor, and has met the Par liament with a full. consciousness of the difficulties before him. How he has ac quitted himself will be judged in a great degree by the views entertained by his judges on the subjects whicl?have cropped up for consideration. Foremost among them is the question of the Irish Church--the Church of the minority-established by the conquerors of Ireland and e...

WE once more dr.W the attention of our readers to the all important subject of Immigration as the means to an end, and that end, .as far as regards this Colony we emphatically assert to be the estab lishment of a paying trafic for produce to the pbrts.of export. As we.,have before observed in older countries, the establishment of'modes :of ·transit is a sequence of population and its requirement, annd is ever based oen. statistics, capable of mathematical demon stration, and precisely defined. In less ad vanced countries and colonies, it is based on reasonable presumptions, but in colo nies and countries-circumstanced as that of Western Australia, it must to a great extent bie ianticipatory and speculative.

-To the Editorof The Herald. SIR,-* In my letter of the 28th ultimo, I omitted to point out one important fact connected with Trade Returns which should not b&e verlooked, especially as regards floating a loan in the Lon don market for this colony. The firsst thing asked or sought for are the Revenue and Trade Returns, and if any and what charges exist for previous loans. Upon these are. founded the mjarket price. Now as much has been written in your Journal recently on the desirability of seekingj to obtain a loan for prosecuting public works in this colony, it will be at once seen how desirable it is that such Trade Returns, made up in as lucid a form .as possible, should exist, otherwise, should a loan be asked for and the price fixed, it might be found on the tenders being opened they were below the minimum price, and the loan become a failure for the want of proper information.

THE INSURANCE COMPANY. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 16 May 1868

THE INSURANGE' COMPANY., To the Editor of Thes Herald. SIR,- I have read with much interest-the no tice. of the 'Marine Insurance Company (Limited), published in your issue of the 9th.inst, which notice I presume is to be considered as the Company's prospectus. There are evidences in various direc tions of aroused activity in theoperations of our capitalists. Merchants, Traders, Graziers and others, seem to be awaken ing to the necessity of bestirring them selves, and doing something in real earnest to lift the colony from the condition of sluggishness and dependency into which she has fallen. It would appear that our leading colonists have grown tired of waiting, trusting to the chapter ofacci dents, and hoping the Imperial Govern ment would do something that would relieve them from the necessity of self exertion. How disheartening it was to such as saw the futflity . of these hopes, and en deavoured to inspire among the settlers a spirit of ' self-help' to find their argu ments an...

To the Editor of The iferald. SIR, Will you allow me to say only one word more with reference to.the letter of the "Magistrate," in the last issue of the Inquirer. Be not afraid I am going to talk theology. Mly wish was to know by what orthodox mode I could increase my Chapel Building Fund, which is rather at a low ebb. The "Magistrate" states thatin Rome he has observed at the door of some. Churches a card bearing thisinscription IndulgenzaPlenaria. I have seen it too. Does he mean to insinuate a similarity between that custom and the adver tisement of an English merchant ? Tourists make egregious blMunderssometimes. I only beg the gentleman to glance over Dr. Butler's Catechism, which is in the hauds of all our schoolboys, and after reading over lesson XXVII, he may see reason to alter his opinion. No doubt he will not fail to remind me of the sale of indulgences, which in certain historical books are alleged to have been carried on in Germany at the time of Luther. But granting f...
