COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. SINGAPORE HORSE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 July 1880

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. i _ t SINGAPORE HORSE MARKET. The Singapore Auction Gazette of June 9, says :'The sale of thirty horses shipped by the " Sea-Ripple" from Fremantle took place in the Square, on "Tuesday, 1st hist., and met with a large attendance of buyors. Seldom have horse sales attracted so-much attention, and it might be useful to shippers in Western Australia if they1 took some notice of the individual prices realised at our sale on-Tuesday. It was gener- ally remarked by those who watched the sale that horses of any merit sold well,' tims showing that good horses are appreciated in ! Singapore. Lots 1 & 2 (pair of greys) were bought in.

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 July 1880

GGCÄSUL EMS. LOCAL AND GENERAL. BY the mail which reached Perth on Friday we have English jiews up to the 14th of June., We notice by our files that the expediency of appoint- ing Eoman 'Catholics to officiate as Governors of dependencies of the British Crown has occupied a good deal of attention, and with regard to the re- cent appointment of Lord Eipon as Viceroy of India much angiy discussion has taken place. Of course Mr. Gladstone's .selection has given the greatest satisfaction to the Eoman Catholics of England, but the Protestant element cannot find words strong enough to expiess their disapproval of the couise pursued by tho Premier in this mat- ter. It is Affirmed that in Scotland the popularity of Mr. Gladstone has in consequence of this ap- pointment dwindled down to zero, and that if he were again to contest 'Midlothian he would be re- jected by a large- majouty. But he this as it may, the General Assembly of the Established Church of Scotland.have just agreed by 115 to ...

COUNTRY LETTERS. {From OUT own correspondents.) GERALDTON. July 5. 11 1 in preference to the profes of "another competent man Since my last we have had showers of bless- ings in the shape of a splendid fall of rain, such as we have not had for years, setting every available plough to work, and making the hearts of the fanners to rejoice. Many of the crops some in fallow land-are up and looking well. We have also had an exceptionally good lamb- ing season-in many instances over one hun- dred per cent., which, together with the pros- pect of a good clip of wool at fair rates, ought to relieve the ' tightness on the chest ' felt by many of our sheep farmers. The report of the Inspector of Roads appears to have ' riz the dander ' of some of our ama- teur road-makers, and you, no doubt, have had showers of indignant replies. Mr. Higman may be right in what he states with respect to some of the Hoads Boards, but not all ; and it would doubtless have been wiser had he qualified some of his...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, JULY 13, 1880. MR. MORRISON'S SUGGESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 July 1880

?THE ViGILAXS ET Al DAX FERÍR7TUESBAT7JVLY 13, 1880. ^M^ldORRISON7« SUGGESTIÔNT . WE have no doubt that Mr. MORRISON'S letter, which appeared in the la&t issue of the West Australian, will have been read by ,many with interest. Both Government and Council aro constantly accuied of being barren in expedient and wanting iu policy. And the accusation is made with a . considerable appearance of truth. At a time when a policy is very particu- larly required-some method of extrication out of the difficulties with which we are surrounded-and when none such has as yet been proposed, it is refreshing to find a colonist stepping forward with a scheme to which he can confidently invite the, atten- tion of West Australians as one which w ill at once and with ease, both relieve them of their burdens, and enable them to continue on a large and extended scale, the public works so necessary to their progress and welfare. This, Mr. MORRISON claims for the suggestion which he has made. No dou...

MASQUERADE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 July 1880

MASQUERADE BALL. BT BO-PKXP. Vanita* vaniUxUm. No doubt. But then there are vanities and vanities. - And a masquerade and fancy dress ball, such as that given in the Town Hall on Thursday evening, and of which the promoters were Messrs Griffiths and Silvester, was such a novel and withal amusing exhibition of vanity, that I was not surprised to find it engage more.than the ordinary amount of attention. Se presentatives of the bland and benigant Pecksniff, whose " particular wanity" takes the form of pine- apple rum, rather than " antique pagentry," of course looked askance at such a spectacle of human frailty and folly; buta numerous section of the community do not appear to regulate their recrea- tions on such severely correct principles. Thurs- day night's ball could not, of course, lay claim to the eclat which distinguished the fancy dress ball given in the same building, under the auspices of the aristocratic Sinking Club, last year, as it neces- sarily lacked the extraneous and...

THE NOVELIST. A RUSSIAN KING LEAR. TFrom the German of Ivan Turgcnjev.] (Continued.) "Enough, dear father!" Jevlampja went on, and her voice was soft and soothing ; "forgive the past, trust me-you always used to, father dear. Come down, come to my room, aud lie down on my soft bed. I will dry you, and warm you, and hind up your wounds. See, your hands are torn. You shall he as comfortable with me as if you lay in the bosom of our Saviour. Your food shall be pleasant, and your sleep pleasanter still, we have been guilty, we acknowledge it. We have sinned-forgive us!" Charlov shook his head. "Believe you? Trust you? Not I! You have killed all the trust I ever had ! You have killed everything! I was an eagle-I became a worm for your sakes. But you trod upon the worm. Enough ! I loved you Jevlampja ; you know it !

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, July 12. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

COUNTRY LETTERS. I (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, July 12. Stagnation reigns supreme, and your corres- pondent is reduced to the necessity of sending you a shorter letter than usual. The Collie Saw Mill has 'knocked,' and the staff and effec- tives have emigrated to Port Augusta to test the capacity of that station. The excessive rains have necessitated the discontinuance of some extensive contracts in course of progress at Dardanup ; but, notwithstanding the recent deluge, rain is still a desideratum with farmers in some localities, where ploughing has not yet been possible. A case of considerable importance, to that section of the community comprising timber traders, occupied the attention of the Bench on Wednesday last, when a question of trespass, arising from the hauling of timber, was heard. It appeared that the complainant, Dr. Love grove, is the owner of a piece of land which constitutes an angle in the line of road used by the defendant, one Andy Taylor, and ethers...

"RENDER UNTO CAESAR, THE THINGS THAT ARE CESAR'S." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 July 1880

! BENDEE UNTO OESAK, THE THINGS THAT ARE CESAR'S." To THE EDITOE OF THE WEST AÜSTBALIAN. SIH,-Three fires lately have broken out at Fremantle. I am not going for one moment to question their origin-I care little at this hour whether one or all of those fires were the result of incendiarism, or of mere accident : I look rather at the possible mischief that has been averted in each of those cases, feeling gratified that a vast amount of injury, and I may add a large amount of misery, has been opportunely averted. In none of the above cases, perhaps, was so much danger met, by the ever-ready public who rush to lend a helping hand on such occa- sions, as in the instance, some time ago, of M. Higham & Sons fire, in the basement of their largo stores, where the conflagration arose, and where a considerable amount of gunpowder was deposited. Had that been ignited, num- bers of willing souls would have been launched in a twinkling into eternity, and the premises either blown up into...
