Correspodence. TO THE EDITOR OE THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 May 1875

<íattt*V oui tnte. TO THE EDITOR OE THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-I venture to trespass on your columns for space for a few words on a matter personal to myself. The Lord Bishop of Perth, in his speech at the meeting on Tuesday last, did me the very unexpected honour of referring to a plan, which, at his request, 1 had sent him some time since, for the alteration, enlargement, and decoration of the present so called Cathedral, I say so called because it wants its Cathedra. It was beside his Lordship's purpose to enter into any explanation of the merits of the plan, nor is it my purpose to assert that it has any, but, in justice to myself, as the plan has been men- tioned publickly, those interested should be made acquainted with the considerations which led me to adopt it. The problem I had placed before me was multiform. 1. To utilize the present building. 2. To arrange all additions and alterations so that it might continue to be used for public worship while they were in progr...

Cauutrg lUfo», GERALDTON. The Gem sails to-day for Melbourne via Fremantle with lead ore from the Narra Tarra, for the Melbourne and Champion Bay Lead Mining Company. The furnaces for smelting are being erected as fast as men and material can be procured, and there is little doubt about the work being a success,. Mr. Hod- son having smelted Narra Tarra ore in Melbourne. There have bee» some few particulars received about the death of the two Clarkson» on the overland road to Nicol Bay. Edward Clarkson who has been with the cattle party since the death of his brothers, has written to his sister Mrs. Readhead, something to the following effect, the letter coming to hand a few days ago. We have received Henry's watch* and William's compass from a native about 150 miles down the river and he says that they " the natives'* have tha revol vers. Bryan and another are gone with the native to secure the revolvers and any thing eke they may find. The natives say there were only three natives ...

A SPEECH composed with such care, and delivered with such decision of purpose as that with which the Bishop of Perth opened the meeting held in * the school room of his Cathedral Church on Tues- day last, should not be passed by with- out notice, even had it come from the mouth of one speaking with less autho- rity ; but its length, and the many and important subjects involved in it prevent us from doing more at present than offer- ing to our readers some general remark a upon it. With the object of, or the decision ar- rived at by the meeting we have little to do-the whole proceeding» denoted a foregone conclusion-but, if we were to express an opinion upon them it would be in accordance with that of his Lord- ship, to build a parish church on the site of the present cathedral, is not to be thought of. Whether wisdom might not be gained from experience is another question, The church of Romo wise in her gene...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 May 1875

TO THE EDITOR OF THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TIMES, Sir, A feeling of pity for the position of the nominal author has prevented the exposure of his barefaced impudence in placing before the public such a plagiai'ism as " Loshaw," but lest those who have considered " his star in the ascendant" should continue to deceive themselves by mistaking a composition of Disraeli's for his, it is but right to state that the brochure is copied almost verbatim from a work of that well known author and orator. " The Young Duke" from which it is principally stolen, was however only a juvenile flight for which its author craves indulgence, but we cannot be indulgent to it in its new jacket; it is well it is but short Lnd requires little space for its ex- posure. A glance at the following: parallels wHl make comment unnecessary : X. AU the Colony was there, and of course our hero. However, certain, never was the transit oi Venus watched by Astronomers-who had calculated its advent-with more anxiety than w...

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS Late 244 Strand. 533, Oxford Street, W.C. SIR,-I take leave to inform you that Messrs. Myres & Solomon of Syd- ney, advise me under date 31st July, 1874, that some cases of pills, labelled "Holloways Pills, New York," have been sold in ' their ' city by Auction to Hawkers and others. They have also sent me a Box of the pills which are spurious imitations of mine. My medi- cines are neither made nor sold iu any part of the United States. In the Melbourne Argus of June 26, 1874; is a letter signed "Percy L. Hardnage," (a copy of which I enclose) in which he calls himself my authorised travelling agent. This is false, as I neither know the man nor have I had ccrrespondence with him. It therefore may be that he is travelling for the purpose of disposing of the spurious make of medicines to which Messrs. Myres & Solomon have been pleased to .call my attention. I am, Sir, Yours faithfully, THOMAS HOLLOWAY. London, Sept. 26,1874. TO" THE EDITOR OP THE " ARG...

NATIVE MURDER AT ROTTNEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 May 1875

NATIVE MURDER AT ROTTNEST. At Fremantle Police Court, before Mr. Slade, the police magistrate, on Friday last, two abori- ginal native prisoners, named respectively Jimmy and Craca-the former a middle aged and very intelligent-looking native, the latter a mere youth-were jointly charged with the wilful murder of a fellow prisoner, also a native, at Rottnest, on the 25th April, ultimo. Detective-sergeant Rowe assisted by Sergeant Wisbey conducted the case for the prosecution. The evidence, which we give in full below, dis- closed the following facts. The deceased native, who was named Tim, was lying down in one of the prison kitchens or wards a few Sundays ago. he having been on the sick list for some days previously. It is the practice to allow the native prisoners to go out hunting on Sundays, leaving the prison after breakfast and returning at their own option at any time before a fixed hour in the afternoon. On the particular Sun- day on which the alleged murder took place, the t...

ST. GEORGE'S CATHEDRAL. PUBLIC MEETING OF PARISHIONERS. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 May 1875

ST. GEORGE'S CATHEDRAL. PuBi-ic MEETING OP PARISHIONERS. {Continued from our last.) Dean GEGG said it was with the greatest satisfaction possible that he followed His Lord- ship the Bishop on the present occasion, fully endorsing, as he did, what that had fallen from his Lordship. The Bishop had so thoroughly exhausted the subject that little or nothing was left for him to add.. He would in the course of the evening have further opportunities of addressing the meeting, and. he would, therefore for the present defer what observations he might have to make with reference to some portions of the Lord Bishop's address. With the view of expediting the business of the evening he (the Dean) had prepared a series of resolutions to be submitted to the meeting, but in adopting that course there was no intention whatever to fetter any expression of opinion on the part of any parishioner present. He wished them all to bear in mind that he stood there that evening in a two-fold position-as a mem...

Courrespondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

'(KtQttttyBulktuti To the Editor op the W. A. Times, Sir,?I have carefully read your report of the proceedings at the late meeting of the con- gregation of St. Georges' Cathedral, Perth, and have come to the conclusion that there has been "much ado about nothing." If I understand the matter aright, a majority of the vestry, at the instigation of some of the congregation^ adopted resolutions in favour of the erection of a new church; and a minority of the vestry, backed by the Bishop, the Dean (who was a party to the resolutions) and some influential members of the Standing Committee of the Synod, have successfuly combined to upset the resolutions for reasons which were put forth at length by the Bishop at the meeting. These reasons were to the effect that a new church is not feasible at the present time, that the money cannot be raised, that the giving power of the Church of England community has been overestimated, and that funds should first be provided for a sustentation and endo...

In going over that prison I saw a great number of these poor people made ¦amenable to our laws for in many instances following out their own, and kept in (to them who by natur© are born to a wandering life) a most painful confinement, without one -attempt made to civilise or christianise them, herded together, these poor creatures, our fellow.creatures, bearing God's image, and of like passions for good and evil with ourselves, ;ttre left with no spiritual and small temporal -comforts, put into the earth when they die as we would bury a dog.
