8££&Si8NAL ÏÏQTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL, A coMPLiMEXTABT dinner was given to the Colonial Secretary on Saturday, the 21st, by a number of the honourable gentleman's personal friends. The entertainment took place at Lucas' hotel. Thirty three gentlemen met to do honour to the guest of the evening, members of the Ex- ecutive and Legislative Councils, members of the civil service, and others who wished to join in an ex- pression of the kindly feeling and regret which Mr. Goldsworthy's approaching departure occasions. His Honour the Chief Justice presided.

VICTORIA PLAINS, August 20. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 31 August 1880

VICTORIA PLAINS, August 20. We bave had another spell of dry and very warm weather, and the stock-owners are begin- ning to look serious, and wonder how the wells will stand next summer, for it is too late to expect much more rain this season, and I fear that a good many wells will go dry, «a the ground has not been thoroughly soaked for several years. The crops are looking well in some parts of the district, but are rather back- ward in others. Lambing is ended, and shear- ing will soon be commenced. ' A cricket match took place last Monday be- tween the Victoria Plains cricket club and the South Plains or ' Orange and Green ' club, re- sulting in a victory for the former by one innings and 31 runs. This is turning the table with a vengeance, for the ' Orange and Green ' club have won two former matches against the Victoria Plains cricket club, and two with New- castle last season. The principal features of this game were the magnificent bowling of S. Sheridan, and the batting and'...

The Mechanics' is a public institution, and of more value to the community generally, than the Good Tem- plars Society, and Í think the latter might have put off their dance on this occasion. The concert and ball at the ' Mechanics', however, went off well. I send you the programme, which I will not venture to criticise, as I am no musician. All did their best, and therefore ...

STUD NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 31 August 1880

STUD NEWS. Mr. James Morrison, stock and station agent, re- ports : On August 18th, my prize short-horn cow, " Ballet Girl," dropped a bull calf (Band-master), to Mr. Padbury's imported bull "Anthony." " Ballet Girl" was bred by B. de Burgh, Esq., of Moore Biver, and is roan. She took the 1st pria* as " best Milch Cow" at the W.A. A. Association^!, Show, in Perth, in Nov., 1879, is very well anil evenly made, and a first-class milker. " Anthony" (roan) calved May 13,1878, was bred by Colonel Gunter, Wetherby Grange, Wetherby, Yorkshire", and personally selected by Walter Padbury, Esq., when in England. "Anthony" was got by 2nd Duke of Glo'ster (28392) dam Antonio 2nd, by Baron Oxford 3rd (25579). He is, without doubt, the most fashionably bred bull that ever landed in Western Australia. " Band-master" is a rich dark roan, and promises to be a fine animal. Also, at Yatheroo, on July 26,1879, Mr. Pad- bury's imported short-horn heifer " Mabel Buth," dropped a red and white bull calf "...

BUNBURY, August 21st. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 31 August 1880

BUNBURY, August 21st. The continuation of boisterous weather haSjCulminated in another shipping casualty. The Citizen of London, when taking in san dalwood jit the jetty, was struck by a heavy sea, bringing her into violent collision with that structure, the concussion cutting clear- ly in two a massive fender protecting her, and staving in several planks in her side, be- low the water line. The extent of the in jurytihas mot yet been ascertained. The captain, with great presence of mind and promptitude; instantly cast her off and got her under way, and, by utilising a quantity of blankets, the inrush of water was suffi- ciently retarded to enable him to run her to,,the northern peninsula-a rather un- protected and certainly not very eligible site foriher overhaul, At the time of the casu- alty she had about twenty tons of sandal- wood on board, which is now being discharge edjprèpajçatqry to a survey, but it is very doubtfull if she will ever float again. She is uninsured, and much...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25. The SPEAKER took the chair at 7 p.m. RAILWAY TO THE EASTEBN DISTBICTS. Mr. SHENTON, in moving the resolution which stood in his name, affirming the desira- bility of extending the railway from Guildford to York, by way of Spencer's Brook, said he thought it would be acknowledged that the sub-, ject was one of the most important ones that had been brought before the House that ses- sion, and his only reason for deferring it until now was that he was waiting until the Estim- ates were submitted, so that hon. members might have an opportunity of judging what ex- penditure would have to ne provided for the en- suing year, and of considering the question of ways and means. The Estimates were now be- fore the House, and he thought there was no- thing tobe gained by any further postponement of the present resolution.

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 31 August 1880

MARRIAGE WITH DECEASED WIFE'S SISTER To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIE,-I am sorry to find that my last letter to you seems to have irritated your correspond- ent "P.L.j" that I must ask you to insert a few lines more. " P.L.," in his first letter so well defended the only ccclesiasticism that has been maintained with reference to this matter -viz., that the officers of the Church must maintain her rules till they are altered by authority- that I cannot see wherein he differs from me in principle. The only thing in which I have gone beyond him is in trying to show why the Church's rule is as it is, in order that those who feel aggrieved might have a glimpse of the difficulty of altering it. I am happy in having done so to find almost all the arguments I used repeated in the leaders in the London Times, June 28, and the Guardian, June 2 which have since come to hand. " P.L." has not been quite fair to me on one or two points. ' I am to bl ame for omitting to cite certain witn...

I i SIE,-Two-pence per lb. export du ty on wool. I do believe there is nothing too absurd, and nothing too monstrous, but that you would find some people ready to propose it, and adopt it as a measure that would benefit the colony. I wonder how many squatters there are in this magnificent country that are worthy to be called " bloated," either as regards wealth or wool. Would there be fire per cent, of them? I suppose it never occurs to these very far-seeing and most original advisers, that, in placing a prohibitive tax on the produce of wool, it is the poor, struggling, persevering 'squatter' who will chiefly suffer, and that too in five times the proportion that the very few affluent ones would do. Of course any school-boy, with a neces- sarily limited experience in sheep husbandry and ...

A BEAL honest parliamentary battle, in which forces are pretty equally balanced, and the fight is in regard to a matter of more than usual importance, is always ex- citing and enjoyable to those who take an interest in politics. The fight in the Legis- lative Council on the 25th instant, over the two first clauses of the Audit Sill, supplied such an occasion,-the only one apparently during an already lengthy session, on which the Government has made the slightest effort to defeat the compact forces on the elective side of the House. The effort made on the 25th was strenuous, and narrowly missed being successful. As will be seen by the division list, three elected .members ranged themselves beside the occupants of the Treasury and Nominee benches, the twenty members in committee being then equally divided. And when the CHAIBMAN gave his casting vote in favor of the clauses as they stood, the hearty cheera wh...
