THE IRISH CHURCH. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 August 1868

. THEIRISH CHURGH.. To the Editor of T/e .mrald. - SIR,--Whether the disendowimeit of: the Irish Church is a step in the riglht direction whether it is just or unjust--appears to be an utter m-ystery to the majority of our colonial newspaper readers It is to be regretted there fore that the press does not--as a rule--suffici ently enlighten their readers in reference .to tile great questions which fromn time to ti?e engage the attention of the Briti0l Parliamettf- .. The following statistics may tend to aisiit some of my fe!lowv ignoramuses i- forming an opinion upon this important question. It is shewn by a Parliamentary.-:return that that there are 543 beneficesin Irel'nd, iri which the Portestant clergyman has just 50 in his little flock. There are 615 benefices in which the.memle'rss are so few that each church family is ~instructed in the faith at a cost of £~l per annum. There are 229 beneficis in which each church family costs £139 12s. Od; per annuin. There are 75 parishes i...

NOTES FROM THE CITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 August 1868

NOTES FROM THE CITY. Mr. Crowther has returned to.the Colony. There is not much news from King George's Sound. Flagstaffs were being erected, turkeys, fowls, &c.,-were being collected, and even a a Triumphal Arch talked of. What does all this portend ? The celebration of some festival no doubt. butwhether for an advent or exodus we knownot. . Accepting the.tender. of our many neighbors in the adjacent colony'may(strange to say) prove very beneficial to ourselves." They.may na turally argue that if such a large' sum can be 'expcnded on Public Offices at Albany (which is one of the smallest towns in' Swan River), the colony must be iu a most flourishing condi tion,. and hence a desirable place to settle in. Ifthey will only act on this supposition,. we :shall not require many of those English and Irish Immigrants who are so loth to make this the land of their adoption. Although Chips' friend Stebbin, rather ques tions the abilities of the new members, we at fPerth do not agree...

FREMANTLE UNION BENEFIT SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 August 1868

?REMANTLE UNIo BENEFIT SOCIETY. On Monday Evening last, there was a rather numerously atttended meeting held at the room of the Working Men's Association. The Rev. Mr. Bostdck in the chair. Considerable discussion took place upon the rules as proposed, and the apparently unani mous feeling of the meeting was that, the pro posed scale of entrance fees was much too high, and would operate as a complete bar to many persons joining the Society. Ultimately re solutions were passed reducing thescale of fees on entrance to a minimunc of 5s. at the age of 17 and extending to a maximum of los. -at: the age of 40, and tending in other respects to lower the scale of contributions; and so to bring the Society within the reach of Working Men. The meeting stands adjourned until the Even ing of Friday next the 14th Instant, and in the meantime it is hoped that parties will come forward, in good numbers, and place their names on the list as members of the.Society. It is believed that a considerable...

KNEWCASTLE. -. (From a Correspondent.) : ". Since my last we have had abundance of rain, it has cleared off for a tipe, but I fear, for only a very short time, the roads in mauy parts are nearly impassable, being flooded. The Annual Races take place on the.29th October next, a well attended Meeting was held a short time since at the Newcastle Hotel, and the necessary arrangements made, the funds in hands are satisfactory, and we may look forward :to a good days sport. A Musical Entertainment was given at the Court House on Thursday evening last, to gether with Readings by our Resident Magis trate W. L. Clifton. Esq., and Dr. Grouse, both were much applauded, and the evening. passed off very pleasantly. Owing to the stormy qeather, the attendance was small, but much credit is due to our worthy Resident, and the ladies and gentlemen who assisted him, for their efforts to amuse, at this dull season of the year. - The proceeds were given to assist the building a School Room at the Wickl...

SCRAPS. LOONG DRESSES.-Oliver Wendell Holmes. uses thedfollowing language, none to strong in refer ence to one of fashion's foolish freaks :-" But confound the make-believe women we have turned loose in our streets ; where do they comeo from ? Not out of Boston Parlors, I trust. Why, there isn't a bird or beast that would drag its tail through the dirt the way these creatures do their dresses. Because a queen or duchess wears.ong dresses on great occassions, a maid of allVwork or a factory girl thinks she must make herself a nuisance by trailing through the street#s, picking up and carrying about with her -bah ! that's what I call getting vulgarity into your bones and marrow. Show over dirt is the attribute.of: vulgar people. If any man can walk:, behind one of the women, and see what she rakes up as she goes, and not feel squeamish, he has cot a tough stomach. I would not let one of them ,into my room without serving them as David did Saul at the cave in the wilderness -cut off her...

THE STORY-TELLER. VICTORY AND DEFEAT. CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

THE STORY-TELLER. VICTORY AND DEFEAT.

Istill remained in his office, but as partiner--not student, and his influence was a great advantage to me. Business flowed in upon us, and.my successful handling of my fist few cases, won me the reputation of a "risingyoung lawyer."

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

IT is always interesting to note how a man comports himself on his first appearance in public after having sustained a serious defeat. Will he be depressed and downcast ? Will he make a ghastly effort to appear at ease ? Or will he stand forth triumphant and dictatorial as ever ? Lord Bacon tells us that there are three sorts- of flatterers. The indiscriminate flait-ror, who praises yoiu generally and at hap hazard-theprudent flatterer who praises you for your good quialities-and the impudent flatterer who liraises ryoun for your bad ones. Even so there are three ways.of bearing defeat. Some men weara subdued deportment-others affect a.superb iidiflference-and lastly there is the manner of a man who behaves as if he.had got the victory. Now there is no disguising the fact that Mr. Hampton has sustained some very serious re verses of late. It is one thing to be recalled in accordance with official routine ; and a very different one to find a Petition, got up to pro tract his stay, co...

SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

S U AM MA RT FOR THE 1MAILS. ..-------o. We are in a condition to describe the first phase of our.new constitution; at the departure of the last mail we were uncer tain whether it might not have taken place under a new head of the executive, but for reasons, to us mere matter of. conjecture, Governor Hampton lingers amongst us. His removal having been resolved on, and his disappointment at the injudicious failure of the memorial concocted by the Editor of the Inguirer and the members of his inner Cabinet,esoftened down by a few conventional complimonts, which am biguously enough, were confined to .the satisfaction flowing from ihis 'idminiistra tion of the Government to his own con science; .His Grace of Bucktingham imposes on him the duty of applying for an increase of salary, not for himself but the new Governor, on the grounds " that as the. colony was progressing .it was entitled to a better and more administra tive class of Governors.

SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

One subject has .monopolized the whole of public attention during the month-the Legis lative Council. It will be recollected that'se veral of the members of the present Coimncil had been selected by the people of the colony for recommendation co Her Majesty's Govern ment, and as, in a limited sense, they were re presentatives of the people, much interest was felt in the debates and discussions. A full account of the proceedings of the Council will be found in another part of the paper, and weonly observeherethatthe?emi-elec ted-members have given gireat satisfaction, and. have demonstrated the bene'ficial results'of re preselntative government. More has been done during the preseit Sessiou, short as it was, to forward the progress of the Colony, to reform abuses and check the despotic power of the Governor and his Executive, than during the whole previous period of -the history of the Colony..

Esq, on the 2 th ultimo, when juidgment: was given for theptentiff for the full amount claimed At the time such article was written the case. was still pending as Mr. Manning had given Snotice of appetl, I cannot therefore but think it. (to say the-least) very bad taste on the part of "Recenseo" to argue tile case in tlie Press be fore the appeal came off, more especially as such articlewas adistorted statement of facts, evidently written in Mr. Samson's intetests, and still more when it is considered that "Recenseo" could not have been aware when he wrote his article whether or not Mr. Symmons had stated his case for appeal,'this last objection will ap pear of greater importance when It is knbwn that'the Resident Mnagistrate d...
