To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Having observed in two recent issues of your Paper a paragraph stating that the Lady Louisa was hourly expecting to go ashore during thelate gale, I beg as master of that vessel, to give my distinct and unquialified denial to such statement. During the whole of the gale I had not the least fear asto the safety of the vessel, she was anchored in excellent. holding ground, and I can conscientiously say that she did not move in the slightest degree from her anchorage. Yours tru!y JO 1N MACKELLAR, Commander Barque " Lady Louisa." Fremantle, July 13th, 1868.

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, ' I beg to correct an error in my letter of last Saturday by which it is nmade to appear that there is a Local Ordinance enabling ships after being in the Portuone mouth to bond all cargo not entered at the Custom House. This was a general, but wrorig impression-it appears that the Ordinance does not enable the Agents to bond cargo but after a vessel has been one month in the Port the Collector of Customs may do so. This, so far as it goes, is a very ;salutory provi sion, but it does not go far enough; before the month has expired the cargo has been turned over and over again, causing great delay to the ships in discharging and injury to the eargo. It is to be hopedithat "our Member" for Fremantle, being himself a ship-owner and therefore aware of the present system of discharging vessels and its disadvantages will not disappoint the expec tations of his constituents. at the approaching Meeting of the Legislative Council, but will be prepared with a...

RAILWAY SLEEPERS. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

RAILWAY SLEEPERS. - To the Editor of -'he Herald. SIR, A few days ago having an opportunity, for the first time, of reading the full details of the Vasse and Perth Sleeper controversy, I was rather surprised by the niovel illustration, of the often repeated dexterity with which the V..sse Correspondent of the Inquirer, converts his seeming office of Annotator into an agency. for the expression of his personal grievances or private predilections, under -guise of- public news. In these days of novelties, pufing aspires to rank in high art. The once vulgar craft of the touter now commands the polish of intellect and sends forth its-calls in forms so seductive- that one is sometimes doubtful whethej he:~eadls the plain narration of. truth or a.meie rehearsal of the " Spider and the fly." The march of new idea has reached even this rearward community; the poetic, the crossed, the inverted advertise ment are already familiar, and these of course are but the foreshadowing of further progre...

SHIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

SHIPPING. Attention has been drawn to several matters connected with shipping, and. it 'is expected the Government will initiate some measure for the better regulation of business at the port. It is pretty,clear that the muddle, mismanage ment, and delays at present existing cannot continue. In the first place the anchorage ground at different seasons of the year is left to the option of the master or pilot, and in more than one instance the safety of the vessel, her cargo, and crew have been jeopard ised. The proper anchorage for different seasons should be properly declared, and vessels should be compelled to lie in them. The master of a vessel is ndt the best judge of the safest place to anchor, and thle safety of the vesel should not, depend `up6n his whim. Garden Island is. the proper place for vessels tolie atdhring the winter, and the pilot should be bound to take all vessels there. of a cer tain tonnage. It is a cause of much complaint among ship agents and Captains that tho...

CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 July 1868

S CHAMPION'BAY. (From 'our own Correspondent). The Greenough River I.as ,overflowed its Banks to that extent that 5 or 6 feet:of Wateris gathered on some of Lands. At Geraldton Church Prayers for the cessation of Rain was said morning and evening, and doubtless it was answered.as we have since had several days fine weather. M*any of the' Greenough Corn Lands were flooded and many of the Fields. now appear as Lakes of Water. The Farm houses of Mr. Duncan and Rhodes Senr.and several others havebeen so much submer ged that their occupants have been compelled to abandobthem. Two small Culvert Bridges on the Greenough Road are said to be so much damaged as to unfit them for use and the loss of crops destroyed must 'be most seriously felt by many. There is now every sign of more rain com- ing but we hope it will be in moderate quantity. The Catholic Chapel was flooded to the height of several feet. ON Monday last the Era, edited and published by Mr. George Barrow made its appearance. We b...

FALLING LEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 July 1868

FALLING LEAVES. They are falling, slowly falling, ThickL upon the forest side, Sever'd frois the noble branches, Where they waved in beauteous pride. They are falling in the valleys, Where the early violets spring, And the birds in sunny Spring-time, * First their dulcet music sing. They.are falling, sadly falling, Close beside our cottage door; Pale and faded, like the loved ones That have gone for evermore. SThey are falling, and the sunbeams Shine in-beauty soft around ; Yet the faded leaves are falling, Falling on the mossy ground. They are falling on the streamlet, Where the silvery waters flow, And upon its placid bosom Onward with the blue waves go. They are falling in the churchyard, SWhere our kindred sweetly sleep; Where the idle winds of Siummer Softtly d'er the Idved ones sweep. SThey are falling, ever falling,' When the Autuim breezes:sigh, When the stars in 6eauty glisten .. Bright upon the midnight sky. They are falling, ilhen the' tempest Mdoans like ocean's hollow r...

SCRAPS. CONCERNING LoANs.--Tomkins says he never lends an umbrella. If its a cotton one his friends are guilty of laxity of morals as regards meumand taunm; if its a silk one they seem to think its (s)ilk-convenient to return it ; and as for gingham umbrellas, he declares no one ever gives a thought to bring-ging-'em home again. "I keep the best bread," said a certain baker the other day te a poor fellow who complained of the inferior quality of the article he had pur chased of him the day before. "I do not doubt it," replied the customer. "Then why do you complain ?" asked the baker. "Because I would suggest that you sell the best bread and keep the bad," was the reply. Why is a prudent man like a pin ?-Because his head prec nts him from going too far.

BUDDING AND BLOOMING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 25 July 1868

BUDDING AND BLOOJMLNG. -4----- SSoftly fall the little raindrops In the granite spring-time showers And the earthland of its treasures, Giveth us the buds and flowers. Amid the tears and smiles of a summer sky comes the fresh young spring, with bud and blossom, with life and beauty, with song and gladness. The dark, dreary shadows of winter have crept silently away, giving place to the warm sunbeams that softly lie over all the earthland. The white-winged clouds float lazily aver the valleys, and loiter around the hill-tops, dropping down from time to time the genial showers like so many tear-drops of joy. Nature makes haste to spread out over the earth a beautiful carpet of green, and the sweet wild flowers spring up on every side to decorate the fields in loveliness. The woodlands are echoing with the- merry birds' songs, and the soft warm breezes that come up to us from the sunny south, waft along upon airy pinions the music of murmnring rills. From every side, from valley and de...
