Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 23 July 1875

local ana étn*ra 1. THE HON. F. P. BARLEE :-A telegraphic despatch, which we publish in another column, intimates that the presentation of the address from the settlers in the Albany district to the Hon F. P. Barlee was a great success. General regret was also expressed at the colony being deprived of the valuable servicos of so useful a public man. We think that the hon. gentle- men's supporters and opponents will endorse ¿hese sentiments.

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY. JULY 27, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 July 1875

tljf lUstorn 2Uistraltmt ©mes. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY. JULY 27, 1875. The public mind has of late been agi- tated with various schemes, put forward for the advancement and invigoration of the colony. Of these schemes the two most prominent and worthy of considera- tion are undoubtedly the establishment of more extensive steam communication with the Eastern colonies and India, and the construction of a line of railway to connect Fremantle, Perth and Guildford. The movers and advocates of each of these propositions, we believe have the welfare of the colony at heart; and are fully convinced that their particular scheme is the one most adapted, or at any rate most expedient, for the colony at the present time. % But we all know that the originator of any scheme, ever, cries " Eureka," and .therefore it be- hoves a community always to "look be- fore they leap." Now, in looking ai the two projects referred to, there can be little doubt, if any, that if carried out successfully, t...

In commenting upon the 1st clause which referred to the formation of a line between Guildford, Perth and Fremantle, Mr. Hardey senr., said that he was in favour of a railway line to the Eastern districts, but he could not help thinking that they were beginn- ing at the wrong end of the work ; and if they began wrong, the chances were that they would not succeed. He did not think that Fremantle or Guildford was the place to commence, but in the timber ...
