IMMIGRATION. To the Editor of The Herald [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

. IMIMIGRATION. To the Edito.reof fke Herakd< It is only reasonable to siuppose that the Governor of one of tlie Austiralian colonies should be conversant withlthe Imnigration laws in force in the neighboring colonies. But.I find, to my intense astonishment; by the Report of the meeting of the Legislative-Council, in the Supplement to the e?r'ald of the 8th inst, that 1 am entirely wrong in giving His Excel lency credit for the possession of so much infor mation .on this subject. Teic said "It wamd pre posterous to expect that this colony could be converted into a.penal settlement for.freeim: migrants-the result to which Mr. Hardey's suggestion tended." . Nowv this remark. in my humble opihion, was p~reposterous.. J beg most respectfully to idform His Excellency that in South Australia there is an act of parliament that compels. immigrants to remain in that colony for the space of twd years, and that a police officer attends every steamer from Adelaide to Mielbourne.as fa...

To the Editor of the Herald. SIR,-. ......I. veno desire-perhaps no .right sincethe subject has been recently well ventilated byle gislative discussion and determindd, tob, if not to the objects themselves, to the public mind~isa tisfactorily-to say ode vord upon the efficiency or otherwise of any subordinate member of the Survey department, but simply ;td. allude to a cirdumsitance withmnmy own ken which struck me as highly solacing to the mind of a gentle men connected therewith, who does not reside, at the north, ond whose constitution, it' would appear, is bornde down by officialtoil, to reflect that,.his apare (?) time had not been mispent, for could he not rake out of the embers of his memory one instance where as he went about doing good (to himself). hehad received the oil of gladness in'the shape of upwards of n'inety ninepounds I for a little private survey on his own account. What anodyne more powerfuil than this-?. Yours obediently. M IEDICUS. August 13th, 1868.

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

LABOR.'. Complaints still continue as to the inefficient and inferior kind of lab6r.-. The discussions on this subject in the Legislative Council wvill be read with much interest. A small supply of females has arrived by the. Palestine and will soon be engaged if at all useful. The colony is wretchedly supplied with labor, and we were disappointed that the Report of the Committee on Inmnigration did not recommend a more exm tensive system of ihmigration. We have.4ct space here to enlarge upon this subject, but it is one deserving the most serious attention. ON Thursday evening, a publie' meeting of the friends of Temperance was held in t`he Girl's? School room, at which about forty persons were. present,'for the purpose of forming S- Tempe&' afnce Society. The Venerable Archdeac6n Bro~h'n of Perth, was voted to the Chair, and addresses were delivered by the Archdeacon, the Revys. G. Bostock and J. Johnston. A.C.G. Eichbaum, ir. Millward and others.

CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

CHAMPION BAY. (From a Correspondent.) : 3 On the Sth inst., another very noisy Meeting was held of the Agricultural and .District So ciety at the Hampton Hotel, Greenough Flats. . One.part of the Business of the Meeting is said to have been a determination of a small section of the squatting interest (led off by the Greeiough Stipendiary Magistrate), to in duce the Government to do something. in the shape of renewing the present squatters tenure under Long cxtended squatting leases, so as to prevent immigration and the permanent settle ment of small agriculturalists.'; lThe walls of the Wesleyan Chapel at-Ge. raldton, and that also on the Greenubugh Flats are progressing. S:Preparations are being made for the erection of a very handsome little Church at Geraldton. SSubsciiptions are being made for the erec tion ofa church near the soUth.end of the lower Greenough Flats.. A continuation of genial, sunny weather has -had a beneficial effect on the district crops in all directions, hea...

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

COMMERCrAL. Trade is quiet-we are glad to notide. a growing, disinclination, among'those engaged in busiisess, to the .credit, and truck and barter system-so long indulged'in to the injury of the Coloniy. There are hopeful signs of change. for the better in the conducting of commerecal matters. .One or two of the old muddlers still hold on to the ancient system.and raise their. voices against all who propose novelties; but'il a very short time they must eithier changde6r succumb. T'he march a-head will not be stopped by the. feeble shouts of a few dogmatical old fogies ofa bye gone period. Businessin the year 1868. must be -done in a different manner:ito whatlit-was in 1800-if a merchant wishegrto succeed. The Marine Assurance Company has adver ticed its intention to increase its capital: and extend its share list. A deposit of £1 ?per share is ilso required, all very great improye merts upon the original prospectus.. .ThR Company is not prepared we believe yet to ac cept risks, but...

PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 August 1868

PUBLIC WORKS. Wehave nothing new dof consequence to report. A Tender hbas been accepted out of the'Colony, for the erection of Government offices at Albany at a cost of about £5,000. As this remote part of the Colony contributes but a small share to the general revenue, and is almost entirely de pendent on the trade accruing from its being th@ coaling station for the F. & O. Company's Steamers-the expenditure of so large a sum of money for such a purpose is viewed -with. igreat dissatisfaction by the settlers geneirally. SThe estimated cost of a Railway submitted Sto the Council by the Governor, prepared by I Mr. Jewell, ClerkjofWorks,liiknowntobemost inaccurate anrid enormously in excess, some I items, timber, iron rails, &e., being set down at about.double for what they could be supplied..

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

SHIPPING. The discuqsions, in this Journal respecting the discharge of vessels have brought about a change-for the better. More than one agent has advertised that unless goods are entered·at the Custom House by 'the consignee so many days after arrival of the vessel, they ·illbe landed and boiided at the risk and expenseof the consignee, and fnrther, that if consig~es have not a boat alongside the vessel to repelve goods as they come to hand, they will be put into any licen'sed boat that may be alongside as the goods turn up, and landed at the risk and expense of the consigne.e This is certainly a step in the right direc tion, and the agents who haid the courage;to introduce it in opposition to long usage are deserving of much credit;. Much, however, yet .remains to be done in the way of facilitating the loading.and dis charge of vessels, and the best, cheapest, and most feasible plan is the construction of a breakwater.

THE STORY-TELLER. THE MAY QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 August 1868

THE STORY-TELLER, -4-- THE IMAY QUEIE N, SIn a lovely glen in a sequestered part of our village stood a small white cottage half embowered with roses and honey suckles. It had been for many years the residence of Mr. Ashmore and his only daughter, lovely lsabel Ashmore. How my heart beats when I think of her swan like and glorious beauty! Yes, she was as lovely as the first blush-rose of sur iner; but never was she so transcendantly beautiful as when arrayed for a Ma'y-day festival. My eyes rested with prof?..d admira tion upon her graceful, fairy-like form, her rich, golden hair, clustering in droop ing ringlets o'er a brow and neck of ala baster whiteness, the softly rounded, rosy cheek, the full cherry lips dimpled with Ssmiles, the large, bluer soul-spealking eyes, with their sweeping fringes so ~pft, light and changeful. She was standing in a vineclad arbour, whose green leaves and early roses, with here and there a pale forget-me-not, had enticed fair Isabel hither to fill her...
