COMMERCIAL. BEHN, MEYER & CO's REPORT FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA. AUSTRALIAN PRODUCE. Our last Report was dated 22nd May. During the past month, the demand for Sandalwood .has been checked by the arrivals of the Formosa and the Flodden, buyers have been cautious, and have ottered only low rates for the new supplies, but; with unaltered favorable reports from China, holders remain firm, and expect soon an im- proved demand.

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 July 1875

o c a I a it ir <§ * it * r a I ? Railway Movement.?The railway com- mittee held their second meeting last Saturday afternoon in the Town Hall, when a memorial was submitted, and adopted, to be signed and presented to His Excellency the Governor. The movers seemed to enter into the work heartily and are pretty confident of ultimate success. Mr. Hardy senr. while in favour of the move- ment urged strongly the necessity for com- mencing " among the hills." Hi3 argument on behalf ot " over the hills and far away," met with little favour from the meeting; and having expressed his opinion that they would not have the railway to York in 10 years hence by commencing where they proposed, he wound up with the conclusion that the town men were " a selfish lot," with very little sympathy for the denizens i f ihe hills.

Inter-Colonial News. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 July 1875

Inter-Colonial News. The intercolonial mail arrived yesterday morning at 9-15 a.m. We subjoin a summary of the news:? VICTORIA. The principal measure which has been under discussion in the Legislative Assembly has been the Land Act Ameudment Bill. Alter seven nights' debate, the second reading was carried by a majority of 52 to 9. As, however, has been the case with almost all preceding mea- sures dealing with this subject, nearly every member that spoke had some pet crotchet of his own, which, it adopted, would, he was sure, make the bill just what it ouuht to be. The only serious amendment, however, yet proposed and one, which, if curried, would have rendered the bill useless, and have necessitated the re- tirement of the Government from office, was moved by Mr. Godfrey, and was to the effect that there should be no further alienation of Crown lands, but that leases should be granted ?to use the words of one hon. member?tor 33 years, renewable for ever. It was not difficult to exp...

THE SUCCESS OP HUMBUG. (Saturday Review). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 July 1875

THE SUCCESS OP HUMBUG. (Saturday Beview). A man may possibly be too good for this world, as it is certainly very easy to be too bad. Here and there, though the phenomenon is not so common as is sometimes suggested, we may find a thinker who has really been far in ad- vance of his age, and who has been entirely overlooked in consequence. He has tau gb t a philosophy which may be intelligible in the distant future, but which is entirely above the capabilities of the existing race. When we disinter such a man from the decaying rubbish of his contemporaries, we say naturally that he w,is the salt of the earth, and that his keener perceptions of the truth, filtered through the grosser intellects ol his disciples, were the force which kept thought from extinction. It may be so in some cases; but it is possible to take a very different view. What is the use, we may fairly ask, of a man who was so wise that nobody could understand him in his life, and who is only studied by a remote posteri...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 July 1875

Car x ts i a nfc nice. To the Editor of the W.A. Thies. Sir,?Some years since I resided in a small town in Africa, with fewer inhabitants than Perth, where every morning at 7 a.m. in sum- mer and 8 a.m. in winter, there was an auction market under the auspices of the town counsil, who employed their auctioneer and charged a small percentage to the vendors for stalls &c. During the night and in the early morning, teams came into town from the neighbourhood, deposited their eggs, poultry, vegetables, wood, or any other marketable produce lor sale, and the articles always realized a good price at the morning auction. Why not adopt a similar course under the Town Hall in this city P Such an arrangement, pr-periy carried out, would be a great advantage both t<> sellers and buyers, as there are many small proprietoi'3 of land in the neighbourhood of Perth who can- not afford to spend the whole day hawking their goods about town, but who could easily bring in their pr...

It would be desirable to see if they could not open a quarry there in order to obtain stone for the repairs. They had still £150 sf the grant and it would be a good opportunity ot expend- ing it beneficially. The proposition was agreed to, and it waa . resolved that a party of 25 men be sent to the j work, I Stone Crushing Machine.

ffilw fflfstcnt Australian ffiimcs. SOLTJM NON MCTAT GENUS. FRIDAY. JULY 30, 1875. This Government Gazette of Tuesday last, contains the provisional appointment of Mr. Loftie as Commissioner of Titles under " The Transfer of Land Act, 1S74." That Act therefore is now in operation, and its practical utility will be put to the test. We have said elsewhere that English law takes more account of men's property than of their persons, and, if the length of an act may be received in evidence of its estimated importance, we have a sufficient proof of our assertion in " The Transfer of Land Act," as it extends over 68 pages, and is divided into eight parts, with one of preliminaries, containing 144 clauses, besides 17 schedules ; it requires also a vocabulary of 15 words for the in- terpretation of its provisions* If when the Queen gave her assent to it she had read and understood all its contents, she has done what we think could scarcely be called a labour of love.
