WESTERN AUSTRALIA-No. 39. Downing Street. 27th March,'1868. SIm,--I have received your despatch, No. 219, of the 6th of December, accompanied by certain resolutions passed by a meeting in the Victoria District, and also transmitting a .memorial ad dressed to me by.two members of a committee. appointed at that meeting. I observe that the first resolution complains that no notice was taken by the Secretary of State, of the Petition to the Legislative Council for making a partly elective Council, and of Mr. Samson's protest against the rejection of that request. This complaint is made under a mis apprehension. In my despatch to you of the 9th July, 1868, conveying the assent of'Her Majesty's government to the course recommen ded by the Legislative Council, I expressly stated.that I hbadhad under consideration all tbe despatches received fronm you on this import ·ant subject inoluding the two desp?chies-:which contained copies of the Petition to the Council Iand of Mr. Samson's protest....

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

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR,- In'your Journal of the 2nd instantl observe . you have given space to an article from a res pectable settler and esteemed subscriber-in answer to friend Chips' article on the "New Comers." I feel quite sure that our intelligent and amu sing friend is quite capable of taking care of himselfwhen he unbosoms his mind without any extraneous assistance from me or anyone else. I therefore leave him to fight it out with the settler and the New' Comers, and I have no hesi tation in saying that any odds may be laid in Chips' favor. The settler however has thrown out an inuendo so glaring that it should be. at once exposed, otherwise it might gain credence. that the Post Office Savings Bank was an Insti tution for the unprincipledand dishonest, instead of being as it undoubtedly is for the thrifty and honest. Settler writes, well I tell you this much, if all our colonials only follow their example, no p~erson would see in the balance sheet at the end of this...

THE STORY-TELLER.' LILLIAN VERNON'S COMPIANION. IN TWO CHAPTERS. CHAPTER I. " No; you do not disturb me, Ver onioa; come in." But the speaker did not move from the couch on which she half reclined, to greet the new-comer, The girl called Veronica glided softly-stealthily, you might al most have called it-across the gorgeous carpet, and placed her arm' caressingly about the lady's form. "You have good news ?" and her keen, gray eyes bent eagerly over a let ter which her friend held.. Lillian Vernon did not speak for. a moment, though she clasped the hand that lay upon her shoulder. It was as if a bright morning cream, which she feared to dispel, had bound her with its mild thrall. There was a soft light in her gentle eyes; and a sigh, low and tremulous, yet not of pain, parted her lips. It seemed to recall her once more from whatever reveries she had indulged; but still she did not move, and spoke with downcast eyes, and a voice so subdued that. Ver onica knew the memory of pleasant ...

THE DEAD LETTER OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 May 1868

THE DEAD LETTER OFFICE. The return letter office, which is one of the most singular and interesting depart ments of the General Post-office, is situate in St. Martin's-le-Grand-street, opposite the great building. To this department gravitate all' the letters that fail to be delievered throughout the empire. It willastonish the reader, perhaps, when he is told that this number amounted is the year 1865 to 2,518,000, equal in quantity to the entire annual correspon dence of many a German kingdom. Of course, we do not mean to say that the entire number.failed to reach their desti nation eventually, or that ther were all bond fide epistles; many were circulars having reference to the general election of that year, many advertising circulars, but. the larger portion were genuine letters. The roasonslthat led to this large return of- correspondence are numerous and singular. It-will, -perhaps, scarcely be credited thiat hi. 1865: 12,000 letters were. posted' in.

ON the 22nd day of March in the year of Grace 1765 George 'Grenville, founder of the political party known as the Gren villites, on the -principle that Colonists, should be taxed for, the benefit .of the Mother Country, introduced a bill to tax the British North American Colonies. This was resisted on the broad ..principle "That taxation without representation was an outrage ;' thatthey couldnotbe taxed without their own consent." The Great Commoner,. William Pitt, the great Con stitutional Lawyer, "Lord: Camden, and Mr. Burke the greanest Orator, Philoso pher, iMoralist and Philalthropist of that or any age emphatically declared, "that the allegiiincerof :coloniesd could o.nly pro ceed from the possession and exercise of similar." privileges with those of ,the" 6other Country-that these were the ties which though light as air were as strong as links of iron, bit that once it was un derstood that the Imperial Government is one thing and privilegesof the Colonies is another, .the cem...

BEVERLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 May 1868

BEVERLEY. (From our own Correspondent). -0 In such a district as this, there is of course little of interest to communicate. I think we may boast of being the quietest district in the colony. .

I hear the' foundation for the building is already laid and from that I should judge that the proprietor is pretty certain of getting a Li cense.

It was the settlement of a tedious law seuit, in which the estate of Sir 'Charles liad been involved, which has called him td England. Perhaps his heart beat a little faster .when he, heard that Lillian. was still, un married, and far exceeded her girlish loveliness.

DEFINITION OF THE WORD "RATTENING." [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 May 1868

DEFINITION OF THE -?WO?D " RATTENING." Rattening is denfied by a correspondent to Notes and Queries as follows :-In " Hallamshire," the district of which Sheffield is the capital, and indeed in Yorkshire generally by. -the common people, "rat" is pronounced "rat'n," and honce the secret mischief done by one workman to another in trade disputes was'-called- "rattening."- That is,: doing on a large scale what the " varmint" does *on a smaller-such as " blending the scales and springs" of the cuttler, cutting the " wheelbands" of the grinder, or the bellows of the blade-forger, and other like injuries. These wrongs were gene rally perpetrated during the night, and when in the morning the sufferer asked who had done the mischief,- the reply was, "The rats had been!" I believe this is the origin of a phrase with which I have been familiar for more than half a century, and which recent painful circum stances have made sadly familiar wher ever an English newspaper is read.
