A LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON. May 18, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880

A LABT S LETTER FROM LONDON. May l8,1880. It is a long time since I last wrote to you, but I have been paying a round of visits of late, and my correspondence has greatly fallen into arrears. Besides that, theso dreadful elec- tions have been in fault. All roy energies have been used up in giving vent to a continuous round of abuse as Liberal candidate after can- didate was elected. Filled with old-fashioned Tory principles, it was impossible for me to settle down quietly to anything, while my righteous indignation was being so continually stirred. Surely never before did Prime Minis- ter commence his new career by " eating his own words" in such humiliating fashion as did Mr. Gladstone when he made his apology to Austria ! Mr. Fawcett also, has to begin his operations hy a public renunciation of his libel against the late Government. Can Northnmp ton also ever blot out the shame of having returned two such men as Bradlaugh and La- bouchere. Of course wo were triumphant when Sir Wil...

PRESENTATION OF A MEDAL TO MHS. BOLDT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880

PRESENTATION OF A MEDAL TO MHS. BOLDT. The ceremony of presenting the silver medal of the National Shipwreck Society of New South Wales, to Mrs. Boldt, wife of the captain of the ship Moorburg, in recognition of her heroic conduct in navigating the vessel into Moreton Bay, under exceptionally trying cir- cumstances, in October last, took place in the Oddfellows' Hall, Fremautle, on Tuesday after- noon. Much interest was manifested in the proceedings, and the hall where the presenta« tion took place had been gaily decorated for the occasion, with ferns, palms, festoons, and flags, which not only served to conceal the nativa hideousness of that dingy specimen of colonial architecture, butlpresented a verypleasing conn d'ocil. Across the front of the gallery was a very neatly executed device, bearing the fol- lowing inscription in German : Treu im defahr -gluêchlich zu letzt ? (Steadfast in danger triumphant at last.) At the request of the National Shipwreck Society, the presentation o...

INTER-COLONIAL. VICTORIA. FURTHER PARTICULARS REGARDING THE KELLYS. MELBOURNE, June 29. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880

INTER-COLONIAL. VICTORIA. FURTHER PARTICULARS REGARD- ING THE KELLYS. MELBOURNE, June 29. It appears the Kelly's—emboldened by the recent withdrawal of the detachment of Queensland native troopers, who, under the leadership of Lieutenant O'Connor, have so long remained at Benalla pending an outbreak of the bushrangers—broke cover, and visited the hut of a man named Sherrit, temporarily occupied by a policeman, and having decoyed the latter to the door by means of a German whose voice the con- stable would at once recognise, they shot him dead on the spot. After besieging the place for some hours, thoughts of their own safety seemed to have occurred to them, and, in order to ensure this, they were prepared to wreck a special train, which they feared might be despatch- ed to the scene of their outrage, and to doom to almost certain death its load of passengers. Fortunately this diabolical plan was frustrated, and a fortuitous combina- tion of circumstances enabled the police to surrou...

LITERARY CURIOSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 July 1880

LITERARY CURIOSITIES. We have had an opportunity of examining some interesting fac-similes of historical docu-   ments recently added to the private museum attached to the Commercial School conducted by Mr. G. Abner Letch, in this city. These documents comprise, inter alia, a fac-simile and translation of the Magna Charta, granted by King John in the year 1215 ; and a fac simile of the warrant to execute Mary Queen of Scots, issued under the hand of " Elizabeth, by the grace of God, Queen of England, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith," in the year 1587. There is also a copy of the "English Mercurie"-a small newspaper of the same period ” imprinted at London by Christopher Myers, Her Highnesse's-Printer, July 23rd, 1588," giving some particulars of the threatened invasion of England by the Spanish Armada. The Mercurie says : Earliethis Morninge arrived a Meffenger at Sir JYanci« Walfingham's Office, with Letters of the 22d from .the Lorde High Admiral on board t...

"LICTOR" AND MR. BURT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 July 1880

" LICTOR" AND MR. BURT. I To the Eprron or the West Attstbaliax. | ] Sib,-In the Inquirer of Wednesday last I ob- served an article signed " Lictor," which, if allow- ed to remain unchallenged, would lead the public to believe that Mr. Sep. Burt had made some very gross misstatements in his speech at Guildford on the subject of railway mismanagement. I will con- fine my present remarks to one statement made by Mr. Burt, viz., that " amateur engineers had "also pointed out the probability of the railway " embankment at Fremantle being washed away " by winter floods," and that the fremantle cor- respondent of the Wut Australian had shown that this embankment was already being washed away up to the very rails. "Lictor" hereupon took steps to ascertain whether there were any reasonable grounds for this statement, and assures his readers that the assertion (amongst others) has not the slightest foundation. I have had the curiosity to investigate this matter also, but instead of interview...

MR. HIGMAN'S ATTACK ON THE ROADS BOARDS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 July 1880

MB. HIGMAN'S ATTACK ON THE ROADS BOARDS. To the Editor of the "West Australian. Sra,-In common with scores of others, I have read Mr. Higman's lstter published in your issue of the 18th instant with a degree of surprise which I am at a loss to describe ; and I cannot but think that Mr. Higman never contemplated its appear- ance in public print, otherwise he would have hesitated before making such a wholesale and un- pardonable attack upon the various Roads Boards of the colony. The document, taken as a whole, is to say the least, an insult to the ratepay- ers of Wast Australia, inasmuch as it clearly in- sinuates that the 140 members which they have from time to time selected to constitute the vari- ous Roads Boards of the colony, are a parcel of idiots, incapable of spending the money entrusted to them, either judiciously or economically, till the "competent man from the otherside" appeared on the scene. But it rather strikes me that Mr. Higman's injudicious attacks upon these bodi...

The MUNICIPAL COUNCIL RACE. TIPS BY NIMROD. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 July 1880

The MUNICIPAL COUNCIL BACE. ' Tips ' by Nimhod. The Vacancy Stakes.-A race for the repre- sentation of the Central Ward of the city. The event to be competed for by horses of average (mental) capacity, and the winner to be ridden by a majority of the ratepayers. One event. Nominations were received np to the 3rd inst. ; the race to come off on the 12th. This race has been caused by the withdrawal from the turf of that celebrated horse Battleaxe, by Sodawater, out of Roast Beef. (For further pedigree see Government Gazette.) No less than six horses have been nominated, and the backers of each are determined that no effort shall be wanting on their part to bring their respective nags to the post in good condition. Being thus supported, the public interest in the event is necessarily very great, and this will doubtless increase as the fatal day approaches. With regard to the pedigree and performances of the various competitors, I am about to say a few words, trusting that whatever my i...

MAYOR AND ALDERMEN. TO THE EDITOR OR THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 July 1880

MAYOR AND ALDERMEN. To the Editor or the West Australian. Sir,-The proposal to alter the style and title of our municipal representatives, appears tome ene that should command itself to all right-minded citizens. It ia all very well for jokiata and «mall wits to poke fun al the thing ; bnt that it is not the feeling which ought to animate the inhabitant« of any municipality. It certainly is not the feeling which does ani- mate those who have a true appreciation of the power for good which the principle of municipal government possesses. Properly considered it is the very groundwork of all that is best in the British Constitution, all that we prize most highly-personal liberty, the right to manage our own affairs in our own way. The munici- pality, in fact, onght to be the training school for the Legislature,-the place where the duties of the individual to the community of which he a a member should be first learned. This isi not ao in this colony as yet, and it is not my present pur...

ROADS BOARDS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 July 1880

ROADS BOARDS AND XOCAL GOVERN- MENT. , To the Editor of the West Australian. , Sie,-It is satisfactory to observe among the various local bodiea heretofore entrusted with the sole management of our roads, an increasing conviction, or au increasing courage, on the subject of genuine local government. Then.« phes received in answer to your circulars, and published in the West Australian, all tend to «hew that the idea of decentralisation ia taking practical shape, and that the members of the local boards are fully prepared-so far a« road-making is concerned-to undertake the duties of local government. This 1 regard as a hopeful sign of the time«. But there i» another phase af the question which our district boards and councils, and those who elect them, should not lose sight of, if they are desirous of working under a genuine system of local government. In addition to the right and privilege of choosing their own local managers, the colonists should be prepared to provide a certain po...
