An Appeal to Young Men. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

An Appeal to Young Men. Would I could reach some young man who íb drifting into the dead sea of on aimless life-an aimless existence. What a mockery of life ! Who can describe the fearful void, the yearning for an object, the self-reproach for wasted powers, the weariness, the loath- ing of pleasure and frivolity, the conscious- ness of a deadening life, a spiritual paralysis, with no response to human interest; no enthusiasm, no sympathy with noble deeds, when the world becomes a blank, and noth- ing is left but the heavy benumbing weight of personal helplessness and desolation ? 1 Better, nobler, to stand face to face with wrong and sin, battling ever for victory, than as a human machine in one daily round of self-indulgence, dullness, and folly. Oh I let my pulses Bweli like a torrent and pour themselves out till they cease. Let heart and brain work their work. Be my life short and swift as a shuttle through the loom. Let it be a life full, strong, and rich. Though it be but a da...

The Pledge. I BT CARDINAL MANNING. { I PEOMiBE Thee, sweet Lord, That I will never cloud the light Which shines from Thee within my soul And makes my reason bright ; Nor ever will I lose the power To serve Thee by my will, Which Thou bast set within my heart Thy precepts to fulfil.

THE FEDERAL AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

TUE FEDERAL AUSTRALIAN. ? In reference*to a telegram lately received1 which mentioned that Mr. Mortimer Franklyn, proprietor of the Federal Aus- tralian had filed his schedule, the annexed paragrapli gives an account of the circumstances connected with his tak- ing this step :-" Au action was tried in the Supreme Court on February 19, before His Honour, Mr. Justice Holroyd, in which Mr. Robert Greathead sued Mr. H. H. Mortimer Franklyn for damages for the publication of a libel in the Federal Australian newspaper. The defendant liad pleaded to the action, but he did not appear at the trial.

PORT REQUIREMENTS AT DERBY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

PORT REQUIREMENTS AT DERBY. To t)ie Editor. Sir,-I should like to ask such of your readers as wish the interest and trade of this part of Western Australia to be identical with their own, to use their influence and endeavours to persuade the Government of this colony to vote suffi f cient money, (if it has not already been voted) to at once complete that which they have already promised, viz. a tramway from the landing across the marsh, which every fortnight is submerged for about a mile inland. Their liberality, so far in building the jetty cannot be denied, and it reflects great credit on all connected with it; still without the said tramway the money expended will be simply thrown away. Up to the present, under great difficulties and with much loss of time, the line now in use has answered the purpose of conveying the few (say «a average of thirty) tons landed per month. But those who have any idea of what a rush to a goldfield is like, will quite hear me out in saying that snch ...

VICTORIA PLAINS RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

VICTORIA PLAINS EACES. j The annual race meeting came off .on the 4th of the present month, and was a decided success. The first race on the list was the Maiden Plate, for which there were six starters. It was one of the best contested races [ have ; ever seen, and the first three came in so , «lose together that the judge hada difficult point to decide on the winner. The fiat was given in favor of Mr. W. Wroth's grey maro Pretty Maid, by a nose ; Mr. J, Macphersons chestnut filly Stella and bay filly Sappho running a dead heat for second place ; time 2m. 31£sec. The performance of the two fillies was very good as they »re only 2-year olds, and carried each 71bs. over weight. There were three entered' for the Victoria Plains Stakes, but Progress was scratched, so it was left be- tween Mr. W. G-. Leeder's Rocket and . Mr. J. Macpherson^ Glentromie.

A Question of Obedience. ^¿i, ÍFrom the New Orleans States.) Ft\°^s literary society a few nights ¿M ago debated the question « Should the word ^S obey be stricken from the marriage service?

The Recent Bank Failure. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 13 March 1886

The Recent Bank Failure. It is a significant circumstance that the failure of the Commercial Bank, while creating no little surprise and disappoint- ment, did not cause anythiug in the shape of a panic. This is a very satisfactory state of things for the other Banks, since it closely indicates the existence of a gen- eral feeling that, although the manage- ment of the defunct institution was un- sound, its suspension was. not to be re- garded as any evidence of the general instability of the banking interest. It is no doubt true that the proximate cause of the stoppage is the prevailing commercial depression in the sister colony ; yet it may be regarded as almost certain that this merely hastened the disaster. At the special meeting of shareholders held immediately after the closing of the Bank, a somewhat disgraceful state of things was disclosed. Net only had large advances been made upon insufficient securities, but overdraft» on an enormous scale had been allowed, and there appe...
