FREE-TRADE IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE. (Economist.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 June 1875

FREE-TRADE IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE. (Economist.) M. Michel Chevalier will And a great deal mere evidence in England that the principles of Free-trade'have taken firm hold of the middle and upper classes than Mr. Bright, if he were to take a similar tour in France, would find there. In fact all the uphiU work of persuading France that the policy of the Commercial Treaty with England, concluded by the late Emperor in 1860, was a sound one, has yet to be gone through, while any travel- ler, even much less acute and observant than M. Chevalier, who chooses to note the signs of the times here, will find ample proof in the course of a very shor? stay, that as far as regards the classes which we can in any sense call educated, there is little indeed that remains to be done towards inspiring them with a thorough practical conviction that all Go- vernment interferences with a natural flow of commercial intercourse between men and nations axe prima facie bad, and that at least a very strong spe...

THE AMERICAN REVIVALISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 June 1875

THE AMERICAN REVIVALISTS. It is estimated that the expenses con- nected with the mission of Messrs. Moody and Sankey in London may reach ¿630, 000. Mr. Stone, the chairman of the committee, states that the amount re- ceived at present is under ¿816,000. This estimate is admitted to be correct by the parties concerned and suggests" two questions. 1. Could not «£30,000 have been spent, to better purpose in London. 2. Is the result equivalent to the effort and expenditure ; 30,000 pieces of silver is the recorded amount sacrificed at one time in obedience to the preaching of Paul; we do not read that it cost 60, 000. The following letter from a well known hand will probaby be sufficient to place this matter in its proper light with our readers. TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES. Sir,-If your space permits I would ask per- mission to address some few remarks to you with reference to the meetings now being held day by day at the Opera House in the Hay- market. I attended one of these meetings i...

FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 June 1875

FASHIONS. The revival of bright colours is now an accomplished fact. It would have ap- peared outre to wear a capucine robe on the race course a few months ago, but since Parisian ladies who are looked on as elegantes in society, have appeared in cardinal red cerise, saumoné and capucine it may be stated that glaring shades are fashionabla. Considerable discernment is essential in the choice of such colours. It is ad- visable to use them for smartening up darker browns, and slates. Sashes of pea- cock, or raphael scarlet, of bronze, green, or turquoise to brighten a dark navy blue or zinc, is considered of a good state. Another new fashion to be worn with great judgment are the philigree gold and silver ornaments, the gilt tress, the silver braiding. A very serious question is agitated in the fashionable world, that of tournure considering that upper struc- ture like the perfect fit of Casque bodices must depend on the figure. A new corset seems called to get much success, made of o...

%\z lästern %win\m fees* S0LUM NON MÜTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 1875. .' STRIKE BUT HEAR" we say in the words of the great Athenian, but fear that it is useless to ask this of some men. A correspondent writes " that our industry suffers from the free importation of flour which makes our produce un- salable" and that the W. A. Times "is a supporter of that ruinous system." Now as we do not question his right, so to designate the system, if it be in ñis opinion ruinous, neither should he question ours to require from him, in the interest not of one class but of the whole community, the facts on which that opinion is founded ; we ask for facts but we get only assertions. If assertions were of any value " Mr. PARKER would now be the elect of York, for another correspondent, writing of the meeting at which that gentleman recently addressed the electors, uses these words " the signs of the times point unmistakeably to Mr. PARKER'S return. His programme of the 9th inst., has unquestionab...

WOOL-REPORT [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 June 1875

WOOL-BEPORT Since we issued our last Market Report on the 20th of March a. c. the demand for wool without being brisk has been regular and uninterrupted and as the stocks of our home grown produce were getting low, sales of Colonial wool*, amounting to about 500 Bales weekly, could be effected at firm prices. However the trade in woollen goods and yarns leaves much to be desired and the aggregate of the sales is made up by numerous small purchases for necessary immediate requirements, the present position of the industry not warranting, in the eyes of our consumers a rise in the price of wool. The clothing trade appears to be better employed than the worsted. The 2nd series of London Public Sales opened with spirit and continues firrrç, and although business in some branches i^jahfj require a lower price level for the raw meteral, still it appear?, that this years production will easily be absorbed at current rates. It is yet too early to form any definite idea about the price to be...

M o ral ani> ê * n l r & I * LECTURE.-A lecture was delivered on Wed- nesday evening in the hall of the Working Men's Association, by Mr. G. Abner Letch, the subject being "Felicia Hemans." The chair was occupied by Mr. George Randell, M.L.C. The attendance was meagre, owing, no doubt, to the inclemency of the weather and the fact that another entertainment, a tea meeting or soiree, was held at the same time in the Methodist Hall. The lecture, however, being given under the auspices of the Working Men's Association, and for the benefit of that institution, it was the duty of members, as a mark of courtesy to the lecturer, and as a mark of sympathy in, and true regard for, the welfare of the Association, to put in an appear- ance. Those who did attend had every reason to be satisfied with the manner in which the lecturer treated the subject, and especially with his reading of extracts from the poetical works of the gifted poetess. The lecturer was fre- quently applauded in...

SIR GEORGE BOWENS SPEECH AT WILLIS' ROOMS. Sir George Bowen, on rising", was received with loud and continued cheering. After re- turning thanks for the kind manner ia which his own and Lady Bow en's health had seen drunk, and after an expression of his apprecia- tion of the courtesy and kindness of the Duke ot Edinburgh in presiding over that large gathering, he went on to say :-Independently oi all other considerations, I venture to think, Sir, that meetings such as this are in them- selves useful and important; for at these gatherings can meet, as an neutral ground colonists and friends of the colonies of all parties and opinions-that is, in other words, Britons residing in the mother country and Britons residing in the colonies; tor I need scarcely say that there is no difference of race or of feelings between us in whatever part ot the Empire we may dwell.

OUR PARIS LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 2 July 1875

OUR PARIS LETTER. The religious future of Germany is ground few would be willing to intrude upon. All we venture to ask is whether any given movement is the real attack on the position of thefoeoronly a-feint with* view to results in another part of the field. What is Prince de Bismark's next step with the Papacy ? He is not the man to let the grass grow under his feet VA such a matter. It is enough for him that his great work, so far the greatest and c*>ni pletest success of modern times, is hindered interrupted, discredited, and even imper- illed by Rome. Contingencies cannot be put out of the question, and were the chancellor or one of his colleagues to pass away, he would leave an unfinished work to less able hands, to reunited foes, to wearied friends to unknown circumstances. In such a case the prevailing instinct is to secure the work, and root out e$ch element of danger or weakness. ^ Thus Prince de Bismark has disposed oí those who declare war, but he has still t> dea...

SANITAEY IMPROVEMENT. VII. VENTILATION CONTINUED. For reasons which I shall detail it is not practicable to introduce thoroughly satisfactory ventilation into the average dwelling houses of Western Australia but it is not only practicable but most desirable that all dwelling houses here- after erected may be constructed with space and provision for ventilation. In the newspapers received by the last mail I observe that a simple and efficacious system has been introduced by Mr. Tobin of Leeds and the details of his plan, which is very highly spoken of, I shall give in recapitulating the different methods which have been tried. It is ray aim to collect and condense the ex- perience of other men and to select, ar- range and modify their suggestions so that practical benefit may be obtainable under our present circumstances. Houses here are usually built on the plan which was customary in England half a century ago, little care has been given .to the alterations needful to suit the clim...
