STEAMBOAT COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 June 1868
STEAMBOAT COMMUNICATION. On Wednesday last the meeting .ad vertised by MIr. W. Burges assembled ,at the Freemasons' HotelPerth. We regret tosay that it was not as numerously at tended as might have been expected, owing no doubt in some measure to the bad state of the weather. Mr. Burges having taken the chair, ex pressed his surprise and regret at seeing so few of the Perth BMerchants and Store keepers in attendance. He did think that on a subject which so nearly con cerned their own interests, they would not have. allowed a small an'd remote community rand town like Bunbury to take the lead,. and head the list of sub scriptio is. He described the enthusaism with which the proposition was enter tained by the Residents of that district, and was ashamed to think that this was, the, only one of the Australian Colonies that was without steam communication between its own ports, to say noting of the trade, with India Singapore and the Straits . SSuch a state of things existipg on the thi...

'the Queen. in connexion with the attempted assassination of Prince Alfred, it was reported that the total number of ignatures was above 63,000. Mr. W. J.
