LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON. LONDON, June 10. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

LABT S LETTER FROM LONDON. London, June 10. I have very little to send you by this mail, not from lack of matter, but rather from lack of time-always the crying want during a London season. We are going, going, going, morning noon and night ; and the only wonder is that we are not altogether gone ! The charity concerts, the fancy bazaars, (or sales as some prefer to call them), the drawing-room meetings, and the various othertrickstounlooseone'spurse-stringa, ure endless; to say nothing of the theatres, the new piece at which must be seen, and the concerts one must hear. All these, added to the social calls of dinners, 'at homes,' balls, etc., etc., etc., make up a mountain of obligations to crush our devoted heads. You may scarcely believe it, but we have had some really warm weather lately. The Derby Day especially was perfect, and therefore you can imagine the usual concomitants increased ten-fold. After Ascot week, also, two of the days were lovely, but the dresses were sobered ...

MR. CLARKSON ON A VARIETY OF TOPICS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

ME, CLARKSON ON A VARIETY OF TOPICS. To tke Editob of the West Austbaxia>*. Sib.-I have read in recent issues of your paper, the letters of Mr. James Morrison and Mr. A. R. Richardson, touching, amongst other subjects, our land regulations. In Mr. Morri- son's scheme for advancing the colony, there are several points well worthy of consideration, but I fear that taken on the whole, it is too * big ' for this colony. ' Big ' men and ' big ' measures don't thrive here. The climate íb too dry, and the soil too poor. Mr. A. R. Richard- son's suggestion with regard to alterations in existing land regulations, I consider very good, they are just what you might expect from a thoroughly practical man, a man well acquaint- ed with the subject of which he treats. It is to such men and their suggestions we must look if our land regulations are ever to be framed in accordance with the real value of West Austra- lian land. Mr. Richardson is quite right when he says that one reason why they ar...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. MONDAY, AUGUST 2. DEBATE ON THE SECOND READING OF THE AUDIT BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

Legislative Council. MONDAY, AUGUST 2. DEBATE ON THE SECOND BEAD- ING OP THE AUDIT BILL. Mr. Sterbe, in accordance with notice, moved the second reading of a bill to regulate the receipt, custody, and issue of the public moneys, and to provide for the audit of the public ac- counts. The hon. member said he felt that if this bill passed into law, the House would have passed a very important measure, and one which, if no other addition were made to the statute book during the session, would entitle the Legislature to public gratitude, for the bill would assist in a great measure to ensure the ascertainment of the correct financial condition of the colony, at any moment-a disideratum which bon. members would agree with him had been very difficult of attainment lately. (Hear, hear.) Although the bill had now been in the hands of hon. members for some days, it might possibly be deemed advisable that, in moving its second reading, he should offer a few words of explanation as to the scope...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents. VICTORIA PLAINS, July 30. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

«MT1Y lETTIIS. [From our own correspondents. VICTORIA PLAINS, July 30. The weather has shown a decided im- provement lately, for we are now getting nice showers of rain, on and off ; but not so much as is required. The late hard frosts have checked the growth of grass and crops considerably. I was told of a case of sudden death that occurred last week, the victim being a man named Bunting, who had been ailing for some time past. The deceased thought he would go to Perth to see a doctor, and was riding on a load of sandalwood, and (to all appearance) no worse than usual, when he suddenly fell back, aud on the teamster going to see what was the matter, he was found dead. A fatal accident occurred at Dandaragan this week, a sawyer named Parker being killed by a log of timber rolling over him. It appears that the log was being rolled down an incline to the saw-pit, and Bunting was trying to turn it in the right direction, when he stumbled and felli the log coming on the top of him. His ...

ABORIGINAL MURDERS IN QUEENSLAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

ABORIGINAL MURDERS IN QUEENS- LAND. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-I had not time, in my letter of last week, to say all I intended on the above subject. I therefore again crave a space in your paper. Of the savage and diabolical murders said to have been committed, not one is substantiated. It is not possible they could be, for such facts coming to the knowledge of the authorities would have at once been investigated, and woe betide the perpetrators. No doubt in all communities scoundrels ex- ist, but such men are not in general the fools these Queensland myths (Mr. X. and Mr. P. and the manager of ----- Downs station) appear to have been, by publishing their own villainy, and by so doing placing a rope round their own necks. But to digress : is it more human to kill right off or work to death? (Vide a late case before your Supreme Court.) Queensland has never attempted to enslave the blacks. In that colony the only method of securing their service is by kind treatment....

ABORIGINAL MURDERS IN QUEENSLAND. "A lie that has the semblance of truth is ever the worst of lies."—TENNYSON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 August 1880

ABORIGINAL MURDERS IN QUEENSLAND " A lie that has the semblance of truth is ever the worst of lies."-Tenhtson. To the editor of the west Australian Sir,-I observe the local papers are still copying extracts from the Queenslander on the subject of the above alleged atrocities, and as doubtless that as well as other Queensland papers will be inundated with emphatic denials from men of standing in that colony (and who will not write anony- mously) , it will only he fair on your part to publish a few of these-as not one person in a thousand has an opportunity in this colony of perusing the Queensland papers. I have had as many opportunities as most men (magisterially and. otherwise) of judging of the falseness of these allegations, by travelling through, and for many years residing in, the unsettled and partially settled districts of Queensland. I know personally many of the pioneers (having been one myself) as also officers of the native police, and I unhesitatingly give my firm convic...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 August 1880

LOCAL AND GENERAL. THE debate on the expenditure of the Road Loan was not a particalary brilliant exhibi- tion, chiefly we imagine from the fact that the action of the Council could extend no further than criticism. It is usual we understand to insert in Loan Bills provisions which give the Legisature control over such portions of the money as are used for carrying ont the objects for which it was raised. The Legislature can thus restrain any extravagance for salaries and establish- ments. No such provisions however were intro- duced in our Eoad Loan bill and the expendi- ture of the Loan is consequently completely be- yond the control of the Council. We do not mean to.imply that there has been any such extravagance and we fully agree with the Colonial Secretary that where you go outside for a stranger to perform the duties devolving upon the Superintendant of Hoads, you must expect that his travelling expenses dar- ing the first year should be somewhat dispropor tioned to the must ...

LARRIKINISM AT NEWCASTLE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 August 1880

LARRIKINISM AT NEWCASTLE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB.-With reference to an item of news in your own correspondent's letter, dated Toodyay 27th July, I beg to say that the depredation al- luded to, at the carpenter's workshop iu New- castle, was, I believe, a part of the night's amusement of a few larrikins here. On 30th June, between eleven and twelve at night s> lump of iron-stone, weighing about half a pound (now in the hands of the police), was thrown with very considerable force, through a closed window in this townsite, evidently aimed at a valued painting ; but fortunately without caus- ing the injury intended. Another act of ruffianism, (I can designate it by no other name) occurred a few nights previ- ously ; but as the offender (having been dis- covered) has it appears made a written apology, to be published if necessary, I will comment no further upon that occurrence. And as the sub- ject of larrikinism and its nuisance, with a view to their suppression, ...

THE "HERALD" AND THE AUDIT BILL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 August 1880

THE "HERALD" AND THE AUDIT BILL. To THE EDITOB O? THB WEST AUSTSAUAX. DEAR SIB,-The attitude which has been as« sumed'by your Fremantle contemporary in dis« cussing the provisions of the Audit Act, and the decidedly hostile position which it has taken up against those who are attempting by means of this measure to place some check upon ex- penditure not authorised by the Legislature, must be a matter of surprise to those of its readers who will recollect the previous writings of that journal on this subject. It was supplied to us in the late debate hy one of the nominee members, who was lately, and for all I know still is, the Chairman of the Reform League, and who stated that he was still an advocate of responsible government, and he feared that if the Audit Act became law the advent of such a form of government wonld be postponed for some years, and he appealed to all those mem- bers who were in favour of responsible govern- ment to rote with him against the hill for the reason wh...

ACCIDENTAL DEATHS BY DROWNING. INQUEST ON THE BODIES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 August 1880

ACCIDENTAL DEATHS BT\ DROWNING. INQUEST ON THE BODIES. An inquest was held at the Perth Police Court yesterday afternoon, by Mr. Lof tie, P.M., the Coroner, on the bodies of two young men, named respectively Wallis and Guerin, who were drowned in the river, by the capsizing of a boat, on Sunday afternoon. The jurors were Messrs. Sendy, Hymus, and McMahon. The following evidence was ad- duced : William Sheehan-a respectable looking lad, who gave his evidence in a very intelligent manner, and who was one of the five lads in the boat when it was capsized-said they left the jetty between teu and half-past ten in the forenoon. The party com- prised the two deceased, and John Whitfield, Geo. Moss, and the witness. They pulled over to the Alta Gardens, and went ashore. After landing they first visited the "jumping place," and indulg- ed in some athletic sports, after which they joined another party, who were engaged in swinging and otherwise enjoying themselves, at the 'Gardens.'
