SUPREME COURT—IN BANKRUPTCY. (Before His Honor The Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9TH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 11 June 1875

SUPREME COURT-IN BANKRUPTCY. (Before His Honor The Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, JUNE 9TH. . In re James White Humphrey, a Bankrupt. The ATTORNEY GENERAL, on behalf of the trustee, applied to the Court by motion with notice to declare void as " fraudulent prefer- ences" under the 84th section of "The Bankruptcy Act 1871" certain transactions be- tween the Bankrupt and G. A. Davies a creditor which had taken place within 3 months of the Bankruptcy, and also for an order to compel Davies to pay over, for the benefit of the estate, the value of the property so transferred to him by the bankrupt. The learned Counsel said the applica- tion was made to the Court under the jurisdiction conferred on it by the 68th section of "the Bankruptcy Act, 1871," (34 Vic. No. 20.) which enacts that, subject to the provisions of the said Act, every Court having jurisdiction in bankruptcy under it shall have full power te decide all questions of priorities, and all other questions whatsoever, whether of la...

THE NEW CLERK OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

THE NEW CLERK OF THE PßlVY COUNCIL. Circumstances ' which preceded the death of Sir Arthur Helps brought the peculiar nature of his office prominently before the public. " The Greville Memoirs," a most piquant and unblush- ing collection of modern Court gossip, had issued from the verv bosom of the Privy Council. Its compiler, Mr. Gre- ville, had been clerk there for many years in the first half of the present century. The editor, Mr. Reeve, was, and still is, Deputy Clerk. The book attacked not only distinguished politi- cians who had unwarily given their con- fidence to Mr. Greville, but it made free with more than one of Her Majesty's own august relatives. When it had run its course at Mudie's, and people began to reflect on the manner in which it had been issued', the editor was universally condemned for the bad taste he ¡¡bad shown in permitting such scandal to see the light. There was even an attempt made in the House of Commons to get an indirect censure p.issed upon him. Sir...

CHRONIC LYING AS A DISEASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

CHRONIC LYING AS A DISEASE. The disease known among alienist physicians as aphasia, and the symptom of which is the patient's inability to express bis meaning by a proper use of words, so that, should he wish for gruel, he will call for snuff or his boots, has re- cently caused some curious developments in the case of the Corottier, about whose moral and social accountability there has been much dicussion. She is utterly un- able to tell the truth on any subject-at least she has not for years been known to tell it-and in her defence on the charge of perjury, her advocate, H. Henri Ber- nouilli, has pleaded her cause on the ground of moral insanity. In a trial that grew out of a case of inheritance Madame Corottier swore so wildly that at its close she was immediately held for perjury, and her counsel proved by physicians that be- yond all manner of adoubt there was such a nervous disorder as aphasia, and that those afflicted with it are not always and in every instance subject to it...

AGRICULTURE IN GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

AGRICULTURE IN GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. The Adelaide Observer thus briefly sum- marises Mr. Valpy's statistics : The annual statistics called " Mr. Valpy's Blue Book" for 1874, have just been published, giving similar informa- tion to that which Mr. Boothby supplies regarding ourselves. It appears that several thousand acres of fresh land are still being brought annually under the plough or improved for pasturage. The preference is, however, largely given to pasture. During the last six years the arable land has increased 270,000 acres, while the grass has been augmented by 1,042,000 acres. A comparison of the acreage with the number of farm servants shows that in England it averages 4f persons per acre. In Ireland, the popula- tion is six per acre. A steady decrease is noted in the number of agricultural labourers, from which the inference is drawn that either farmers will have to give higher wages, or do their work to a large extent by steam power. There is a large increase in t...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, JUNE 15,1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

í!%e itetertt australian fees. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, JUNE 15,1875. THE notice issued by the Police Magis- trate, for the guidance and information of the Publicans of Perth, which ap- peared in our columns on. Friday last, admits but of one interpretation viz., that, until now, the police have failed in their duty in not carrying into effect the provisions of the " Wines, Beer, and Spirits Sale Act of 1872 " because it is proposed to remedy the evils of which " so many complaints have been made" to wit, " the continual disturbances and unchecked disorders in several tap rooms," by instructions to the police " to summons parties wiltully committing a breach cf the law in this particular." We can scarcely feel surprised that the law in question has not hitherto had effect given to it, we suppose that, of their onerous and invidious duties, this is perhaps the most troublesome and dis- agreeable to the members of the police force ; and we much doubt whether one word of this no...

YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

YORK. A correspondent from York writes : The weather is all that can be desired. A beautiful rain having fallen, the ploughs are at full work. By the bye, Mr. Parker addressed the electors on "W ednesday evening last. There were a good many present, the greater part of the number being made up of the avowed sup- porters of Mr. Monger. I dare say Mr. Parker considered it a very flattering recognition. "Where ignorance is bliss, it Í3 tolly to be wise." From what I could make out he is willing to go in for Responsible Government if the majority think it most desirable-that is, if he is elected. There are grave doubts about it. His views on State Aid are something astound- ing, so at variance, I am told, with what he has expressed himselt hitherto, He is evidently at a loss how to manage his case. I would recom- mend him to go in for anything, and he will be sure to be elected. Our York Band under the management of the indefatigable Postmaster,(Mr. Hardman) is making steady progress.

MR. PARKER'S ADDRESS TO THE ELECTORS OF YORK. On Wednesday evening 9th inst. Mr. Parker, met and addressed the electors in the Mechan- ics' Hall. The night was a most unpropitious one, but notwithstanding, the audience was all that could be desired, there being over 100 persons present. On the motion of Dr. Champ neys seconded by Mr. W. Edwards, S. E. Burges, Esq. was voted to the chair. After a few well timed remarks from the Chairman, Mr. Parker came forward and said Mr. CHAIRMAN, AND GENTLEMEN, I must certainly express my thanks at seeing so large a number present this evening in the face of such inclement weather ; on my way down I fully expected to have an empty room to-night, therefore you'* presence re-assures me of your interest on m3 behalf, and leads me to hope that I may have the pleasure on this evening fortnight to again thank you for placing me at the head of the pol1.

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

REVIEW. The every day experience of Colonial "life, in the bush, in stock raising agricul ture, gardening, dairying, housekeeping, and kindred subjects, cannot fail to be interesting to all colonists, especially when the " leading effort" in the arrange- ment of that experience has been to " connect the systems of Agriculture, in- cluding stock farming and gardening, as followed in the Old land, with what is gradually proving to be the best practice in the warmer sections of Australia." The introduction, therefore to our rea- ders of "The Semi Tropical Agriculturist or Colonists friend" needs we think no apology. Mr. Angus Mackay's work is not, however, fully described by the list of subjects which we have given as con- tained in it ; it is in truth a handy-book for the colonist, and the oldest and most experienced will find in it something to learn, and to learn to profit. The papers of which Mr. Mackav's book is a re arrangement were originally published in the ' Queenslander,' an...

EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

EDUCATION. The Roman Catholic elergy have taken up a decided stand in opposition to the system of free, compulsory, and secular education, and are using their best en- deavours to overthrow the existing Pub- lic Instruction Act. The Argus, in a leader on the 28th ult., directed atten- tion to some very striking statistics, tend- ing to shew that the Roman Catholics of Victoria are below the staudard of mor- ality, providence, and education attained by their Protestant fellow-colonists. The Argus wrote as follows :-" In round numbers the population of Victoria at the commencement of the year 1873 may be set down at 770,000, and taking the proportion of the various religions and denominations, as shown by the census of 1871, 540,000 of these will be Protes- tants, 180,000 Roman Catholics, and all others, including Pagans and those who describe themselves as of no religion, 45,000. In other words, the relative pro- portion of these figures may be set down as twelve, four, and one. An e...

THE ARCTIC EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

THE ARCTIC EXPEDITION. The Polar expeditionary vessels at Ports- mouth are now receiving their finishing touches. On Saturday their smoke stacks were fitted, and their masts were brought down to the ship basin in readiness to be placed on board on their being floated out of dock to-day. Each vessel will be bark-rigged, and the masts will be interchangeable, having been so constructed that in case of accident theè spars of the Alert can be erected on board the Discovery, and vice versa. The rigging is of a light but durable character, and men are engaged in covering all the ironwork above and below with a coating of leather, as a protection for the hands of the sailors in the cold latitudes whither they are bound. The screw propellers have also been adjusted into their places, and a new principle has been adopted whereby the propelling shaft, can be drawn in and the screws raised on coming in contact with the ice, without the use of the customary banjo. In a few days the ships will b...

STEEMAN'S SOOTHING POWDERS. FOR Children Cutting Teeth. Oaution to Purchasers. The value of this well known Family Medicine has been largely tested in all parts of the world, and by all grades ol society, for upwards of FIFTY YEARS. Its well-earned extensive sale has in- duced SPURIOUS IMITATIONS, some of which in OUTWARD APPEARANCE so closely resemble the original as to have deceived many purchasers. The proprietor therefore feels it due to the public to give a special caution against the use of SUCH IMITATIONS. Purchasers are therefore requested carefully to observe the four following distinctive characteristics, without which none are genuine : 1st.-In every case the words JOHN STEEDMAN, CHEMIST, WALWORTB, SURREY, are engraved on the Government Stamp affixed to EACH PACKET. 2nd.-Each SINGLE POWDER has directions for the dose, and the words John Steedman, Chemist, Walwortli, Surrey, printed thereon. 3rd.-The name Steedman is always spelt with two EE's. 4th.-The manufacture is carr...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OP THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 June 1875

Carr-esjurnHnf* TO THE EDITOR OP THE W.A. TIMES. Sir,-J see that the Government Cutter " Pearl" is advertised for sale ; which seems to confirm tlie report lately circulated here, viz., that she had been condemned, and was to be sold as soon as her officers and crew, had been paid off. Asj^the "Pearl'' was never fit for the service which she was intended for, and appears useless for other Government purposes, this may be well ; but it is to be hoped that another vessel will be stationed on the North-west-coast with- out delay. The article in your paper of last Tuesday, clearly shews the necessity for this. The vessel employed, should be a smart schooner, of at least thirty five tons register ; as a vessel on this coast should be of light draught as well as of a discription that would work well to windward ; one furnished with a centre board might be advisable-this would make her weatherly, even with a very light draught of water ; carrying a good, seaworthy, four oared gig, as well ...
