MUELLER Ow the Fobest Resources of Westebn Attsxbalia. .The forest regions of extra-tropic West ¡ * Australia occupy an area equal to the whole ' territory of Great Britain ; and it is singu ' larly fortunate for the colony, that over this ' vast extent of wooded country a species of ' Eucalyptus (the jarrah) prevails which, for 'the durability of its timber, is unsurpassed ' ' by anykind of tree in any portion of the ' globe. Under such circumstances the tim 'her resources must be regarded as among ' t^ic foremost in importance throughout the ' wide tracts of West Australia, even if the ' many other kinds of utilitarian trees occur ' ring in the moro southern portion of that ' colonial territory, and the still more varied ' sorts of timber trees, to be found within its ' inter-tropic regions, were left out of con ' sidcration.' Such are the opening words of Baron v. Mueller's report on our forest resources, -a report ...

Judging by present appear- ances, our Swan friends should have a suc- cessful meeting, as they have provided a most liberal bill of fare. - - The Maiden Plate is a very open race, where most of the strangers to metropolitan turf should'meet. It; may be anybody's race. Mr. Parker's Sir Roger, the Prophet, and Tim Whifflèr should hate the bestshow. The next race «>n the programme is the Railway Stakes," which will most likely be reduced to a match between Friar and Bas blanc, and as I hear, the latter is not very forward in conditon it, is just possible that Mr. Parker may turn the tables upon his old opponent.

CATHOLIC ORPHANAGES BAZAAR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 December 1879

CATHOLIC ORPHANAGES] BAZAAR. The Town Hall presented an unusually gay appearance on Wednesday, and again yester- day. For a considerable time past some of the lady members of the Bonum Catholic body in Perth and in other parts of the colony have been assiduously and industriously preparing for a bazaar, the proceeds of which are to go to the orphanages conducted and maintained by that section of the community. Seldom if ever did the Town Hall present so gay and so pleasing an appearance as it did on Wednesday morning when the bazaar was formally opened. The various stalls, about a dozen in number, con- tained abundant evidence of the handicraft of the fair sex, spread out in bewildering profu- sion. Columns of our space might be absorbed in particularising the various articles exhibited for sale, but we must not linger on this subject. SuiBce it to say that many of these gems of digital manipulation and refined taste must have taken the makers weary hours of unsel- fish application ...

Country Letters. GERALDTON, Nov. 27. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 December 1879

©rnmtrg yetta GERALDTON, Nov. 27. Harvest operations may now be skid to be general. Much of the barley and oats has been cut and thrashed, and some quantity has al- ready been delivered at Champion Bay. The average per acre will be over, rather than un- der, the quantity stated some short time ago. One or two small lots that have been cleaned up have given close on thirty bushels per acre, and some few even more than that. Wheat is fast becoming ready for the mowers and reap- ers, and, taking the whole district, we have not had for the last ten years such satisfactory re- sults for either quantity or quality of yield. Taken as a whole, the crops generally are much cleaner than of late years, and there cannot be' any excuse for the delivery of any except first cjass sample fit for any market The wool is nearly all delivered and on board ship. The clip, this season, is better than it has been for some years past, both in staple and quantity, the increase over last year being about ten...

Chit=Chat. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 December 1879

Chit=Chat Another session of the New South Wales Parliament has opened. There was very lit- tle of interest in the Governor's speech. The principal measure promised was a new land bill-in reality the same land bill which the Government was obliged to drop last session. The persistence of the Government in the endeavour to force this piece of retrospective legislation-which is really intended to serve the interests of a few defaulting free selectors, and not, as the Governor was made to say, "the benefit of the people"-is however of   itself a certain source of irritation to, every- body inside the House or out of it who can distinguish between private interests and public ones, and who desire to see the latter protected against the encroachments of the former. An Elementary Education Bill is amongst the measures proposed. Mr. Dillon, a pro- minent member of the House and a Roman Catholic, advocated the principle of making primary education in the State schools purely se...

DESIGNS FOR FANCY BALL DRESSES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 December 1879

DESIGNS FOR FANCY BALL DRESSES. To THB Editor. Sir.-In answer to your correspondent ' Junker's ' enquiries for costumes suitable for a fancy ball, will you allow me space for a few suggestions. For instance, any one in possess- ion of the colored print, from the Illustrated News, of Luke Filde's charming picture "Where are you going, my pretty maid?" will gain a very pleasing idea of a milk-maid's dress. For those who are not so fortunate as to have seen the print or the original, here is a short description : A bright colored petti- coat-rather short-flowered gown, tnrned np' round the waist, after the fashion of a washer- woman, the bodice rather open in front, with a white kerchief loosely knotted over it; elbow sleeves ; large gipsy hat, with a blue ribbon round the crown, hair knotted at the back and worn rather low on the forehead. A milk-pail in which are a few wild flowers, is carried on the hip, and gives character to a very pretty picture. Another effective though rather c...

Çowjjrôtonte. JETTY DUES. -To THB EDITOR OF THE WBST ATTSTBAI.IAW. SIB.-Editors of newspapers, I believe, are supposed to know everything, and if that is the case perhaps you will oblige by furnishing me with the following information : Are there any jetty dues charged for ship- ping corn at Dongarra (on the Irwin jetty) ? My reasons for asking is-if we take a load of corn to Dongarra and drop it down at the end of the jetty, and inform one of the captains of the coasters there were so many bags of corn to go to Mr. So and So, in Fremantle, the crew of the boat trucks it along the jetty free of cost to the grower, and it is delivered on Fre- mantle jetty, at from 4d. to 5d. per bushel"; but I find if you take a load to Geraldton, it takes the same time and the same amount of trans- port to get it there as it does to Dongarra, and what is more you have to pay about 5s. per ton for trucking and jetty dues, and then Id. to 2d. a bushel more freight, which goes out of the grower's pocke...
