To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 19 September 1868

To the Editor of the Herald. SIR, I saw the letter of your correspondent X, in answer to mine of the 30th July last, The writer commences his letter by conjuring up a " spirit," a bitter sectarian spirit," he names it which 1 am happy to say is only a phantom creation of his own brain. I should be very sorry t9 entertain any such spirit. He then charges me with "denouncing the Irish Church as a monstrous anomaly which ought at once to be swept away." To this I must also give my most unqualified denial. My letter was a sim ple statement of facts, which have been fre quently published,and never been controverted, arid is an extract from a Parliamentary return moved for in the House of Commons by Capt. Stackpole. I pass over without remark a large portion of this lengthy letter as being in the main corroborative of my own. I am willing also to admit what is said about the "private property " of these Bishops, the facility with which large incomes received from John Bull can be lent to ...

To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 19 September 1868

To 'the Editor of .the Herald. SIR, I did not see the Inquirer of Wednesday last, till a few minutes ago when a friend brought to my notice a letter in it signed "Progress" com menting upon:my suggestion for the construc tion of a Harbor-Dock at Fremantle. "Pirogress" considers my suggestion "so ". truly absurd that any man of experience and " common sense would merely laugh at the bare "idea of such a thing-and-ask, perhaps, who S"is Mr. Bickley ?"- But as "Progress" is only. a nom de plume, are we without any guaran. tee beyond his own assertion, to take it for granted that he alone has all the experience and common sense necessary to render him a judge of. sich matters, and are we therefore to con clude that every one who thinks differently must be devoid of both ? By way of evidencing his capacity of judging correctly "Progress states (after asserting that my proposed Harbor-Dock would take at least twelve years to construct, and cost not less tlsan a Million sterling) that " he...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 19 September 1868

IN a recent issue we gave in detail the Imports for 1867, the total of which amounted to the sum of £216,229 less £1,200 the amount of specie imported by the Bank of Australasia, leaving £215, 099 as the amount of commercial im ports, and further shewing a consider able increase over the imports of 1866, In the same year the total amount of exports including re-exports amounted to the sum of £167,812 5s. 6d., being an increase of £1,609 13s. 6d., over the ex ports o?f 1i66. As the Imports of 1867, shewed a con siderable increase over those of 1866, whilst tha increase of exports shew but a trifling increase, this circumstance, unless accounted for, might at'first sight be con sidered as evidence of overtrading. The exports of 1867, partly represent the produce of 1866-and bearing in mind that the Colony, and with it our staple industries suffered from a contin ued and blighting drought, extending over a period of two years, it is a subject of congratulation that, under such excep ti...

COMPULSORY RELIQION. The Times of a late date gires a-report summarized below-of what was recently said in the House .of Commons on an interesting subject. A member asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether it was a fact that a pri soner in hMount.joy Prison was ordered by the Governor to select his religion as Anglican, Roman Catholic, or Presbyterian, and that on declining to do so he was sentenced to penal cell, with bread and water diet. Then, the Minister replied that the faciets of the case were these: "The Governor of the prison enquired in the usual manner what was the religion of the convict, who stated that he was of no religion whatever, and that he never attended any place of worship. He added that he was a Pagan-(A laugh)-and refused to be instruc ted in religion of any kind. The Director, being a military man, ordered him to select his religion immediately. (Loud laughter.) The . Governor states that he told the prisoner what was required of him, but he objected to...

Bailey's, of Iorsley-fields, Wolverhampton's .. new patent process for the -preservation of animal substances, which, according to one Newgate Market butcher, has saved' him at . least £30 in a week. Under its influence he has- .. alsokept sweetbreads for ten days, while a West-End butcher has been equally successful with his kidneys. If it is necessary .to kleep.a leg of mutton or a sirloin in sultry, thundery wveathery, nothing more is required than to mix a teacupful of this patent bisulphite. of limesolution and a dessert-spoonful of salt with a quart of cold water.

IT is a well known fact that the British Government have ever since the fatal collision with her North American colo nies discouraged excessive colonization, and avoided as much as possible obliga tions to afford protection and assistance to small offshoots of her people who have migrated to distant .parts of the world, and have not cultivated it as a .great system of social amelioration and social progress, and that the Australian, (the *most prosperous of all her colonies) are the result rather of accident than design, and has further shown a strange disin clination to assume the sovereignty over the immeasurably extensive and fertile districts comprized within the latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere. More recently however the policy of British Statesmen, though indisposed to inaugurate new settlements has been specially directed to encourage and de velop the energies and resources of those already formed.
