Country News. NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

Cflttittrg lUfo3.. NEWCASTLE. Since my last we have had a further fall of rain, which has done much good in giving a good start to hush feed, although there has not been quite enough to set the ploughs going generally. In light and moist soils farmers are busy at work, but in stiff, clayey land, more rains must fall before ploughing can commence. On Wednesday evening last, Mr. James Barker gave his promised Lecture on Life Assurance, in the Hall of the Mechanic Institute here. The weatherwas unfavorable, and the attendance not so good as possibly it would otherwise have been, as it was, however, there was a fair sprinkling during the Lecture, which appeared to be listened to with attention. On Thursday last, the Good Templars of Northam celebrated their first anniversary, by giving a tea-meeting in the Mechanics' Hall of that Town. There was a very large gathering at the tea-meeting, and afterwards some very good addresses were given. Members of the brotherhood attended from York an...

SANITARY IMPROVEMENT. V. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

SANITARY IMPROVEMENT. i < V. In last letter I urged the necessity of having sanitary improvements made the special occupation of a well paid medical supervisor and mentioned how repeatedly in England and in the other colonies at tempted reformation had been rendered fruitless by the power being placed in the hands of people who are interested in continuing the present lamentable state of affairs, A man must be specially trained before he can be competent to undertake such supervision he must be made independent of general practice or otherwise he will have contrary interests to serve, he must be prepared to meet with and disregard opposition and abuse and if he does his duty in a real and earnest way he must be content to be very unpopular. In fact it seems to me that if no complaints are made against a sanitary inspector it must be high time to hold an inquiry into his conduct. Vestries and Municipal councils cannot take such reformation in hand it must be the responsibl...

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 ma under date 31st July, 1874, that some cases of pills, labelled ^'Holloway's Pills, New York," have been sold in ' their' city by Auction to Hawkers and others. They have also «ent me a Box of the pills which are spurious imitations of mine. My medi- cines are neither made nor sold in 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 correspondence 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.

VASSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

VASSE. Nothing worth lettering has been going on here of late, and I am at a loss to make up a few lines even. The Geffrard is loading at Quindalup, for Adelaide, and the Albyn*s Isle at Lockville, for New Zealand. The weather is all that can be desired for the growth of cattle feed, and tilling the land for crops. It is pleasant to hear, that all other districts give equally satisfactory reports. To-morrow is the day for revision of our Electoral roll, which no doubt will make our town a little more lively thjm it generally ia. 12th May, 1875.

NORTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

NORTHAM. Fine rains have fallen here, and nature is once more assuming-her winter garb, our farmers tho' sadly disheartened with past season's prices, have again set the plough in motion, let us hope that future harvests will?<as to price and quantity re-pay them for past losses. The monotony of our town has been relieved by the anniversary tea-meeting of the Lodge of Good Templars which passed off most suc- cessfully. The Mechanics Hall was crowded, some two hundred persons being present, the meeting was presided over by Mr. J. H. Gre- gory, Lodge Deputy. We were gratified to observe our respected Resident Magistrate and his amiable lady present, both of whom wore for the first time in public, the regalia of. the order, the meeting was addressed by various members of the order, including W. J. Clifton, Rev. W. Traylen, C. S. Monger, G. Watkins, Gregory, and Throssell. Mr. Jas. Barker (the Lecturer upon Life Assurance) tho' not an abstainer, addressed the meeting strongly...

(Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

(Saturday Review.) The conclusion to which we come is tint, tested by their apparent effect on the people who go to them, the revivalist services in London must so far be pro- nounced to be, as a means of religious excitement, rather a failure. It may be said that there can hardly be a more in- nocent method of spending an evening than in singing hymns and listening to religious talk; and that, if the thousands of people at the Agricultural Hall Jp* o drawn awav from the music-halls and theatres, there is no reason to regret it. Only, if this is the whole that is to be got out of these gatherings, they fail to come up to the pretensions put forth by the conductors; and, on the other hand, even from a mere secular point of view, they are calculated to degrade and deprave the public taste. The whole theory and plan of a Revival is to work up the people who come to it into a state of excitement, to make them feel the fearful peril of their souls, and to set before their minds in the mo...

The Western Australian Times. SOLTTM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, MAY 21, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 May 1875

The Western Australian Times SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. Friday, May 21, 1875. Public buildings, when once erected, remain monuments of the taste of their builders. Every country in the world has to look back on such standing monu- ments, often of bad taste, and England is certainly no exception in this respect, although she can boast as many build- ings worthy her name and reputation as any other. But we talk of taste in art as if it were intuitive. What is taste? It is the opinion whether good, or bad; which every man has on the subject, for the most part the result of habit or fashion. What   then is the distinction between good and bad taste ? Good taste, in art, as in all other things, is the result of the applica- tion of reason to any work, and is there- fore mainiy dependent on the realization of its fitness and propriety (in one word its truthfulness) with reference to the object proposed. When TURNER, the greatest master of colour in modern times, was asked what me...

{London Times.} Interesting Discovery near Beyrout? Vice-Con sui Jago, in his report on the trade and commerce of Beyrout for the year 1873, just issued, mentions an interesting discovery made by the engi- neers of an English society formed for the purpose of supplying the city with water from the Nahr-el-Kelb, or Dog River. During the latter part of the summer, and until the arrival of the autumnal rains, this river issues from fountains three miles-and a half from the sea. The caverns and grottoes whence the river flows have been explored by the engineers of the company, who, by means of rafts, skins, and by swimming, have at great personal risk succeeded in penetrating to a distance of 1200 yards into the bowels of the mountain, meeting every- where grottoes of cathedral-like dimen- sions, adorned with stalagmites and stalactites of great size and beauty. . The full extent of this extraordinary succes- sion of caverns has yet to be discovered. Their existence until thus brought t...

Police Mews PERTH POLICE COURT. Thursday, 6th May, 1875. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., PM') Alex. Fraser, in Mr. T. Molloy's employ, was charged by Margaret Burrowes, a fellow ser- vant, with stealing a sum of 10s. her property. The police are aware that the accused is prone to such frailties, and were in no way surprised when their assistance was called in by the prosecutrix. From the evidence it appeared that yesterday afternoon, the prosecutrix wrapped some silver, in all 10s. 6d., in a piece of waste paper which she placed on a shelf in the kitchen where she was at work, that shortly after doing so, the prisoner presented himself to get a light to his pipe, that while he was in the kitchen the prosecutrix's attention was occupied with some thing or other, so that she did not notice the prisoner's rambles about the place; that shortly after he retired she noticed on the floor a piece of the paper in which she had wrapped her money some time previously, which induced her to look on ...
