POSTAL COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

POSTAL 'COMMUNICATION BE TWEEN ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. The following Memorial, signed:by 253 Banks, Merchants and others interested in the Australian Trade was presented on the 6th of April to the Duke of Montrose Post Master General. By the Statement of the Gentleman who presented it Mr. S. Morley it will be seen thatthe disappoint ment here at not receiving immediate re plies to letters is causeclby the short time allowed between the receipt of the Aus tralian and the despatch' of the Eniglish Mails. " We, the undersigned bankers, mer chants, and others connected with Aus tralia, beg respectfully to invite your Grace'sattentiorinto the followin gpoints : That the arrangements for the present year for despatching the mails to Austra lia allow only four days for replying to letters received vi, Marseilles, while the letters via Southampton will reach here one day after the outward mail has left.

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

COMMERCIAL. Thereis little new to record this month. Bu s'ness appears to be tolerably brisk for the- time of year, and we hear but few complaints. Se veral companies are in the market-one :for a line of Telegraph between the Port and tlie" Ca pital, but t: e form in which the Prospectus is put forth is most objectionable ; in one respect in particular. • On allotment of shares the allottee is to give his acceptance at three and sik months for the full amount of the shares. Only thatfthe character of the promoters and directors is.abqve suspicion, such a demand would certainly be most damaging to the prospects of the Company, and go very far in a community where indivi duals are not personally so well known as here, to ruin the speculation. We sincerely wish the Company success, but so far as our experience guides us we cannot see that it will pay. The Marine Insurance Company which we. noticed in our last we have heard no more of. Like many other things it just appeared then died a...

SUMMARY FOR THE COLONIAL MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

SUMMARY FOR THE COLONIAL MAILS. One of the inconveniences arising from the obage iirthe despatch andarrival ofourEnglish Mail is the additional trouble imposed on us of making out a second Summary for the Colo nial Mails, the substance of which has appeared in that prepared for the English Mail, subject ing us to the imputation of repeating old news. We have therefore to crave the indulgence of our own Colonial readers, and hope against hope that, our interests, our wants and our ivishes may yet meet with sonie attention and consideration. It is with great regret we read of the contin uiahce of the political crisis in Victoria, by which so much capital is locked up, rnd argu ments furnished to the opponents of free repre sentation in this Colony against any changein our present most autocratic form of Govern ment. We trust by the arrival of the next Mail to hear that, the petty squabble between the two branches of the Victorian Legislature has been ainicably adjusted, that the popul...

THE "RIO". [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 27 June 1868

THE "R IO".- Great complaints have been made of the detention of the "Rio" at Garden Island. This vessel cleared out on Thursday the 18th but was unable to sail for want of a Pilot. till the following Wednesday, when pilot Jackson from Rottnest took her out. The detention' of the vessel was-a loss to the owners of not less 'than £8 per day. Surely our Poi t and Harbor has already sufficient drawbacks without -the. addi tion of carelessness and neglect on the part ,of the Harbor officials. We are not aware, nor do we presume to say, whosed duty it was to have taken the vessel out but one thing is quite clear steps should be taken immediately, to prevent such a delay again taking place., The Pilot should at all times be ready when Wanted, and if there is more work than one Pilot caun attend to, another should be appointed. - " -0 THE "SEA NYYrPH."-Efforts are being made, to get this vessel afloat, and it is hoped they will prove successful. . .o THE CoLONIAL SECRETA~i.-We are happy to...

SCRAPS. NEVER FORGOTTEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

SCRAPS. NEVER FOIRGOTTEN. When forms of beauty round thee press, Thy senses all beguiling, And sparkling eyes and ruby lips Gather around thee smiling Oh. not in such an hour as that, When pleasures all beset thee, Would I implore a thought for one Who never can forget thee. There may be gayer hearts than mine, * And eyes whose gaze is brighter ; There may bethose whose smiles of love May make thy heart feel lighter Yet well I know, though far away, SThou ever wilt regret me ; .And in thy soul thou knowest well, SI never shall forget thee. The following advertisement appears under the head of "A Wife Wanted," in a Yankee paper :-"Any gal what's got a bed a coffee pot, skillet, knows how to cut out britches, can make a huntin'-shirt, and knows how to' take care of children, can have my service till death parts both on us,"

THE STORY-TELLER A ROMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

THE STORY-TELLER. A ROMANCE. " It was highi noon at Lessington. :The blazing sun seemed pausing in mid heaven ere he wheeled his burning cha riot down the western sky. Everything was suff6cating in the intense heat. SOn the trees that studded the lawn the foliage hung limp and nerveless; in the garden the flowers were languid and drooping; the plash of the fountain had grown faint and indistinct, only now and then a few drops fell from the marble shaft. The droning hum of a bee, lazily wing ing by, blended with the chirp of a 'cricket; not a breeze stirred the air, or ruffled the glass-like surface of the lake. Within the house everything partook of the stagnation without. It was a grand Elizabethan mansion, with white marble steps running the en tire length of the front; the columns of the verandah were also carved marble. The long windows were open to the.floor, that all the air possible might enter. Marion Leone was pacing with a slow, languid step, back and forth through the lon...

A GOOD-NATURED MAGISTRATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

A GOOD-NAT~U?ED MAGTSTRATE.-A poor man made his appearance at the bar of the Police Coiurt, Gorbals, charged with being drunk and disorderly in the street, when after a patient hearing, thle presiding Bailie, who seems to have possessed more of the milk of human kindness than that of firmness and dignity which are by' some deeined essential for the magisterial office, ordered him to pay a fine of 15s. "Fifteen shillings" vociferated the man, with more points of admiration in his tone than we can spare room for;' "Fifteen shillings, BIailiel I Ye're surely noin eartnest I Bless ye, whau will I win 15s. to gi'e ?" " Well," said the Bailie, yielding, "I?l. make it half-a-guinea, and not a farthing less !" "' Half-a-guinea, Bailie! if ye fine me in half-a guinea, what's to come o' my puir wife and weans for a month to come ?. we must just starve, there's nae ither way o't" said the offen der, in a most lugubrious tone-" we must starve or beg."

WRECK OF THE SCHOONER "EMILY" AND LOSS OF LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

WRECK OF THE S CHOON·ER "EMILY' AND LOSS OF LIFE. But a few weeks since, we noticed in our columns, the interesting ceremony of the launch of the Schooner Enmily. It is now our painful task to record her loss; sadder still, we fear, the death of her crew and passengers. We do not wish to be premature in announcing the loss of the vessel, and sincerely and earnestly do we hope that our fears for the crew and passengers may prove groundless. But alas !-willing as we are to hope, for the best, the destruction of vessel and all on board is, we are much afraid, but too certainly established. We have no desire to write anything sensational, or to pen one line that could help to harrow the feelings of the friends andrelations of those who were on board, and shall there fore confine ourselves to a simple and short narrative of the facts connected with the melancholy event as far as they can at present be ascertained-Various rumours are afloat; we have endeavoured to obtain the most correct ...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Observing in the" Poet's Corner" of your last paper, a doleful ditty of "One Wronged," as the party is unknown to m~, and the reply can do nobody any harm; I send the enclosed as a con tribution. Politics being at present in abeyance. Yours truly, A SUBSCRIBER. ONE WRONGED. In this life's dark mysterious dream. One is not wronged, it has its mate. : Be not deceived, "cast out the beam," Nor dwell upon your "lonely" fate. No smngle mystery we ever see; Nor single evils can there be; They come "in troops" on either side, And vainly do we seek to hide The one great truth-that much is wrong, And grief and pain to all belong. When "sick and lonely," "near to death," 'Tis best that each should feel, realityg And ere resigned, this mortal breath, Should quench those "stings" in charity. She speaks of death and duty done, 'Tis not by words man's heart is won,.. But kindly deeds in weal or woe ; And say, have her's been always so? And quite pathetic is the t...

NOTES FROM THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

NOTES FRO.d THE CITY. The weather during the past week has been very boisterous and inclement, and the fall of rain has convertedourcitystreets into aqueducts. The appointment of Curator of the Government Garden has not yet been officially conferred upon anybody. People say that it is left open for "Chips," butlIfancy he would find that locality too hot for him-at present a man named Bar-. rett does the needful, and it is very probable that he will be the late Mir. Munrray's successor. The Telegraph question has been settled by the inhabitants of the ' little dot " some time ago. Numerous complaints have been made about the very peculiar way in which various things are purchased privately for the use of the local Government, and then made public in the Go veenment Gazette. - Surely the proper 'way in order to give everybody a chance is to invite tenders. If the Government is represented by one individual, that is no reason why all the supplies required for the use of the Government ...

To the Editor of The Herald. . SIR,;- Having been absent from home some time past, I had not the opportunity of reading your most valuable journal, and I was somewhat sur prised to see a letter of your correspondent Z, of the 16th ultimo, and accusing me of what I am most innocent of, and that I had unbosomed my mind to all the world, without ever soliciting him for to do so.. But.however, I do not know him, and in future I shall be most .happy to do so, if he will condescend for the Editor of the Herald td insert his name, number of his resi dence, street and town, so that I should know whereabout to write for his counsel when I find myself in want of it. In his irritated letter he accuses me of saying, the Savings Bank was comprised of unprincipled and dishonest people. I did not say so, I said, if cash was paid down for every article bought, the balance sheet would not be so much next year. But to prove this very parti.ular point as Z lustrates so much on.

IMMIGRATION TO W. AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

IMMIGBRATION TO W. AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of The Heralk. SIR, I am not a man in the habit of writing letters to Newspapers, but I cannot omit sending you a few lines, seeing so many things said about Immigration. I flatter myself I have some experience as to Im migration, because I have been in differ ent Countries where Imnmigration was going on. But in the first instance you will excuse me in expressing my surprize with regard to W. Australia, and you and my readers may ask, what is so surprising in W. Australia? Well let me tell you then, and I hope you will not be offended. You must be aware that as to its Geogra phical position little is known in the other parts of the world, or even in the neighbouring Colonies. I *'as always (and so most people are) .under the im pression that W. Australia consisted of a Convict Establishment, the Port of Fre .mantle and the Town of Perth, the rest a barren sandy Country.

SOUTHDOWNS AND MERINOS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

SOUTHDOWNS AND MERINOS IN AUSTRALIA. The comparative merits of Southdown and Merino sheep have been the subject of dis cussion in New South Wales, where, Mr, Rotton, a gentleman who in 1863 imported largely from the flocks of the late Jonas Webb and the Duke of Richmond, has kept them with excellent results. These he has com municated to the local press, and in the Mail appears the following summary of his jstate ments:-"> Mr. Rotton went to good flocks for his stock, and has certainly produced results that merit careful attention. In 1863 he im ported rams from the Goodwood and Babraham stocks (Duke of Richmond and Jonas Webb). He has tried a cross between the Southdown and Merino with advantage, but has kept the progeny distinct from the pure breeds. A Merino flock has also been kept, and the con trast between the Merino and Southdown is very considerably in favour of the latter. They suffer less from sudden changes of tem perature, are less pinched by scarcity, cast a greater ...

THE PROTESTANT ORPHANAGE. To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

THE PROTESTANT ORPHANAGE. To the Editor of the Herald, SIR, In reviewing the " Church of England Maga zine " for June, in your paper of the 27th ult., the Reviewer says : ":We would draw attention (in the most friendly manner) to what appears &c., to the end of quotation from the Magazine at the word "Or phanage,' The word "Workhouse " was not designed in the above quotation to apply to the Orphanage : but I am obliged to you for pointing out the ambiguity which may have led many other readers to mistake the writer's meaning. 'i4 The Orplhanage receives from the Workhouse into its more favorable shelter, the childrenof the Protestant community whom destitution drives into the Workhouse. The Workhouse is the Go vernment receiving house for such children, wherever their residence may have been ;and the writer's intention was consequently to show that this place of shelter which took from the Workhouse their little orphans and waifs, must have a common claim upon thecharity of ...

To the Editor of The Herald, SIR,- ..... Will you kindly give me a small space in your paper to make a few remarks.upon a longepistle which appeared in the " P. G. &. W..A.

I :ancy M. must have been somewhat oblivious when writing these few words--and'have looked upon himself as the very pinkof purity---or why undertake so readily to remove the mote from his brother's eye, while the beam stuck dso fast in his own. The Pot and the Kettie once had a serious quarrel about their respective colors and it would be well for M to examine closely his own hide before denouncing the color of his neighbors.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 July 1868

BOTH our contemporaries have become sud denly enamoured of the Immigration po licy, and have made it a primary condi tion of our future success. As we have hitherto advocated it as ancillary to that success so we shall con tinue to consider that without it we see no means of " rising to the height of our neighbors, and emerging from obscurity and disfavor, to become (how absurd) a member of the Austral Group." . But we do think that money ,borrowed for .on structing public works will, if judiciously expended, 'induce one moat useful class to inmigrate-and if the principle of free selection is guaranteed subject to condi tions, prqtective of the squatter's outlay oi capital, and its recoupment when laid out on the faith of a continued tenure, that a class, whom we would distinguish as Co lonists-men with small capital, varyilg from a £100 to£500, will be inducedto in vest it, and by means of conditions com pelling permanent residence, and im provement, without a power of disposing of...
