No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 March 1867

IT has long been a matterof considera ble surprise that our enormous Timber resources have not been further devel O?ed ;. and, considering the variety of pur poses to which jarrah timber is peculiarly applicable, it is equally surprising that those who have been engaged in i-tsex port .trale have always found it a1losin g game. We make no pretension to a knoWlv}dge we donot possess; and in attempting the preseniit subject, it is with a degree of difidence naturally inspired by the want 'of data to guide us in arriving at conclu sions. We have always looked upon it, however, as being destined to form no :inconsiderable item in our list of exports, for many years to come. We have, therefore, chosen it as a subject of com ment this week, more with the view of placing it-before the public, and inviting discussion thereon, than 'for the sake of any new light we may ourselves be able to throw upon it. We know a firm in iFremantle that has been for months en gaged in an attempt to open up:...

Best, were amusing themselves in a small pleasure boat in the roadstead, when the boat of the " Sea Nymph," contain- ing the Captain, Mr. Fisher, (owner,) and one of the crew, was capsized. The two young men hesitated not a moment to risk their lives; irrespective of all con- sequences to themselves, and hastened to their relief, and were thus happily the means, under Divine Providence, of rescuing them from a watery grave. No acknowledgment, no notice was taken of this heroic and unself...

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 March 1867

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. SThere is perhaps, no greater contrast betwee':the systems upon which buisiness is conducted in Londdon, and in Western Austaliah than exists in the practice of .: payg }remi?sms on Sales. In a small; easy~-going community'like 'this, where every trader is known to every dweller in it;- and is pretty sure to have his connec tion,.it is not necessary to pcush sales to the same extent that is done in London; although: a, littlemore activity in this e~ject might be.displayed here, without hnar to any :one. In the large retail sihops of London,. however, where even "the windbw-dressing is a science' that is paid for, it is not considered sufficient for a young man to be able to merely supply alady with everything she asks for; he is expected to do something more, to sell her something she does not ask for, and in all probability does not want. In sonie shops this practice is pushed much further th]an in others. There are shops in:London in which it is laid d...

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. DOMESTIC HELPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 March 1867

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. DOMESTIC HTELPS. . I has an old dictionary that I some times look into, but I can't make much out of it; there's so many meanin's put agin a word that I don't know which is the right one, and instead of making it clearer it only muddles me more. I ain't looked into it for some time, but the other day, havin' nothin' else to do, I took it down and opens on the word Servant. I takes my pen and scratches it out. "That's done with," I says; "It's gone the way of wigs and buckles; one's as out of place as the other, accordin' to present notions."

(To the Editor of " The Herald.") * LIR, In relation to a letter by L' Plain John" in your column to-day, allow me to say, in justice to the Inguirer that any confusion in the treatment of'details in mine ofthe.6th Instant, rests entirely with myself and is in nowise swing to mutilation for locals &c. .By-the-bye, "Plain John," altho' relating a circumstance in connection with banking which occurred 5 or 6 years before I had the felicity of seeing the light, is guilty of some light confusion, inasmuch as he commences othe first person singular and towards the d assumes the Editorial "we."

WRECK OF THE LASS OF GERALDTON, AND LOSS OF FIVE LIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 March 1867

WRECK OF THE LASS OF GERALDTON, AND LOSS OF FIVE LIVES. The following is a condensed account of the particulars of the loss of the Schooner, as taken from the lips of Mr. Henry O'Grady, the Master, who arrivedat Fremantle, late on Thursday evening: "We left Fremantle on Monday morn ing, at half-past eight o'clock, for Bun bury, *wvit a fine breeze in our favor. The schooner was in light ballast trim, and fine sailing order, having on board, besides myself and crew of four men, Mr. Shenton, and Mr. Eades, as passengers. I never saw Mr. Shenton in better spirits than he was that morning. He was walking about the deck as we went through the challanger passage, and talking to me about his other schooner, the Sea Bird. When we got well out, away from the shelter of the Islands, the breeze freshened, and Mr. Shenton then sat down and took out a newspaper to read. We breakfasted at half past ten. After having eaten a hasty breakfast myself, I left Mr. Shenton, at table, and went on deck, w...

To the Editor of" The Herald. SIR, We have all heard a great deal about the origin of playing cards, called by some "Fools Splaything," whilst others give the credit of the invention to his Satanic Majesty; I have my ol heard it asserted by many that they were irst introduced for the amusement of an imbe cile King of France; whilst at school I labored under the delusion until looking over an old Magazine, I found the following paragraph, which may perhaps prove interesting to many of your readers. "Cards came fromEgypt. The two colors, red and black, represent the Equinoxes. The four suits represent the seasons. Their em blem were formerly, for the heart, a cup, the emblem of winter. The spade, an acorn, the emblem of autumn. The club, a trefoil, the emblem of summer, and the diamond, a rose, the symbol of spring. The 22 court cards represent the 12 months and were formerly embellished with the sign of the Zodiac. The 52 cards answer to the number of weeks in a year: The 13 cards in...

From the Diary of a contemporary. CROMWELL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 March 1867

From the Diary of a contemporary. CROMWELL. Mr. Hampden was in Scotland as parliamentary commissioner, keeping watch over the king; Mr. Pym, at his bedgings in Gray's-inn lane, keeping guard for the nation.. But Mr. Crom well went home in the rceess to his family at Ely, and spent some hours with us on his way back to London. He was forty-two years old hen, my father said, and .his hair was not without some tinge of gray; tall, all but six feet in stature, and firmly knit. Many thing seemed to lie hidden in the depths of his gravy5 yes; a subdued fire of temper flashing forthe et times sufficently to show that at the hearty af this gravity lay notice, but fire; a heart is humour, as of a soul at liberty, grasping its purpose firmly enough to be able to give to play ; keen to descry likenesses in things unlike, inner differences in things similar, absurdities in things decorous and the meaning of men and things in general through all seemings. Yet withal, capacities and traces of hea...

(To the Edtior ofthe Heralcd.) SIR, In these days of " Discounts for Cash" and advances on monies, perhaps it will not be out of place to draw the attention of some of our :galler traders to an instance gioted in the " Economist" some years back, as some of them might possibly make a similar mistake. Th , Economist says : " We know an instance of a very deserving man being ruined by a miscalculation of dis count. The articles manufactured he at first supplied to retail dealers at a large profit of about 30 per cent. He afterwards confined .his trade almost exclusively to large wholesale houses to whom he charged the same price, but under a deduction of 20 per cent believing that he was still realizing 10 per cent., for his own profit. His trade was very extensive; and it was not till after some years that he discovered the fact that, in place of making 10 per cent., as he imagined, by the mode. of making sales, he was only realizing 4, per cent. To £100 worth of goods he added 30 pe...

You will go forth-those of you who do not remain for another session-now equipped for your duties; and as you enter upon your various spheres of action I desire first to impress upon you that if you would have success and prosperity you must have before you a higher motive than merely the pecuniary reward for your labour; that you must feel that you are engaged in a noble work, that of awakening the dormant faculties, and bringing out the powers of the young minds that will be com mitted to your charge ; and that you ought to pass your days in the respectable fulfilment ...

(To the Editor of the Herald.) SIR, I beg to correct a statement which appeared in the Gazette k WI. A. Times of yesterday, in which it is stated. that "' the gable end of the Odd Fellows' Hall, Fremantle, was blown out by the violence of the wind;"' such is not the case. The North-East corner of the building was struck by lightning about 10 minutes past 2 o'clock on the morning of Tuesday, which took the end completely out of the building, earrying with it several of the stones some 50 yards, the lightning having split the founda tion in two and then entered the earth. The remaining part of the building is in a sound state, the wind making no impression since the lightning struck it. Some stones have been picked up with the marks of electric action on them.
