OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 7 September 1880

8CM§NAL.Mero LOCAL AND GENERAL* THE Legislative Council entertained the Hou. R. T.' Goldsworthy at a farewell supper on Friday night, the occasion of his last appear- ance in the Bouse. The honorable gentleman, who starts' to-day by the Rob Roy for Albany to meet the homeward bound steamar, leaves many warm friends behind him who will watch his future career with kindly interest. ¿ --- WE understand that His Excellency the Governor and Lady Robinson, accompanied by the Private Secretary, leave Perth on Thursday next, and proceed overland to Albany en route for the Melbourne Exhibition. The prorogation of the Council will probably take place to-mor- row. THE European Mail of July 30 says : "The eldest daughter of the late Dean of Perth, the Rev. G. P. Pownall, who is now Vicar of St. John's, Hoxton, London, was married the other day to the Rev. Lucius George Fry, curate in charge of St. James's, Upper Edmonton." BY telegram, the Hon. Malcolm Fraser has lately been offered the appoint...

Mr. CAEEY, with the leave of the House, with- drew his previous motion relative to the cost of working the department of works and railways, and moved the following resolution : * That, al ' though the select committee on the Public Works ' Department did not see its way to recommend ' any considerable reduction in the expenditure ' incurred by that department in carrying out the ' public works of the colony, upon the somewhat ' hurried inquiry which alone it was able to make, ' this Council is, notwithstanding, of opinion that ' economy has not been studied as it should have ' been by the department in question, and that ex ' penditure has been frequently incurred which, in 'the present financial circumstances of the colony, ' has been wholly unjustifiable ; and this Council ' trusts that the Government will not overlook ' this expression of opinion on the part of the Le...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 September 1880

M03Í0NA1 NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We do, not suppose that any member of the Legislature will begrudge the Governor the pleasure he must have felt in being able to give the House a last parting little slap. His Excellency has no doubt been greatly worried during the last six weeks, and has felt considerable annoyance at much that has been done, which he has found him- self powerless to prevent. The acidity therefore of the little paragraph at the end of his (¡peech was probably a relief to much pent-up feeling, which required an outlet, and obtained it in a most effec- tual way, -for there is nothing so pleasant, when you wish to sting, as to do it at a time when it is impossible for your adversaries to sting back. Is reality, the promoters of the Memorial had not thought it " necessary" to take any steps whatever which involved a departure " from the rules wisely laid down by Parliament." The me- morial was not finished until Monday morning, but a notice couched in general terms, t...

PROROGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 September 1880

PROROGATION. The Council was prorogued on Wednesday afternoon, when His Excellency the Governor delivered the following Speech : Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legis- lative Council, In relieving you from further attendance in Council, I have to thank you for the supplies which you have voted for the use of the public service, and to assure you that they shall be carefully administrated. 2. I am gratified to find that yon have pass- ed the Estimates without much alteration. The close attention which yon have bestowed upon them, and on financial affairs generally, will have satisfied you that the Government have been mindful of economy, and of the necessity of replacing our finances on a sound and satis- factory basis. 3. I am glad that you have voted a sum of £6,000 for steam communications on the coast and that you concur with me that the service should, if possible, be extended to Nicol Bay.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILIANS ET AUDAX PERTH, FRIDAY, SEPT. 10, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 September 1880

WEST Á8ST1AUAN. Vigilias et Audax PERTH, FRIDAY, SEPT. 10,1880. The official, and those more prominent un- official members of the Legislature, who, claiming to be opposed to constitutional change, placed themselves this session in antagonism to the majority of the elected members, in their honest endeavor to ob- tain a more satisfactory working of our present representative institutions, have in our opinion, played a game of extreme im- prudence. Sneering at their opponents, as on Wednesday an apparently inspired advo- cate was permitted to do, accusing them of ignorance and want of tact, they have [dis- played themselves obtuseness the most pro- found, a want of tact the most extraordinary. We, having consistently fought against the present introduction of a constitutional change for which we do not consider that the colony is ripe, feel this tactless folly the more bitterly. What we would ask has been the cause of that cry for Responsible Government of which we have heard so much...

Legislative Council. MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. The SPEAKER took the chair at 7 p.m. Proposed Loan Bill fob £310,000. Mr. STEERE, in accordance with notice, moved the following resolutions : 1. That in the Session of the Legislative Council held in 1874 a proposal was made by the Government, and acquies- ced in by a majority of the Legislature, for the construction out of current revenue, at on estimated cost of £32,000, of an overland telegraph line to Eucla, connecting this colony with the telegraph system of the other colonies, and with Europe. 2. That on condition of this work being at once proceeded with, the South Australian Government offered at its own expense to extend the telegraph line of that colony to Eucla, so as to ensure through communication to Western Australia. 3. That the members of the Legislative Council were al- most unanimous in the opinion that so extensive and costly a work should have been carried out by means of a loan raised for that purpose, and only agreed t...

CORRESPONDENCE OUR BLACKS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 September 1880

£®1SESÎ>©MBIÏÏ« OUR BLACKS. To the Editob of the "West Auttraman. Sir.-Correspondence and articles which have appeared in the public prints lately induce me to write a few lines on this subject. " What should we do for the blacks ?" is a question which has presented itself to many minds, and I scarcely think that any one has as yet been able to shew any method of approaching the matter calculated to prove entirely satisfactory in its results. I cannot allow myself to believe that the attempt to civilize these savages must necessarily end in failure, although I cannot deny that the efforts made in this direction hitherto, have proved much less successful than might have been desired. This is to he account- ed for in a great measure hy the wrong estimate which was originally formed of the capabilities of the aborigine. People have been induced to think that because he has quick perception and an average intelligence, education is all that it is necessary to raise him from his savag...

GERALDTON, (Sept 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 10 September 1880

GERALDTON, (Sept 3.) In my last communication, I think I informed you that the Observer was to appear on Tues- day, the 31st August, and I am now glad to tell you that the event has really transpired. The Observer, however, is not as large as your Fre- mantle contemporary the Herald, but about the same size as the late W. A. Times. The first issue contains some tolerable good reading mat- ter, and the new venture after all may become an honest rival with its local contemporary. Both no doubt will strongly advocate their own principles which, as you know, are diametrically opposed to each other - at any rate on political matters, and especially on the subject of Respon- sible Government. Apropos of newspapers, I may mention that a large literary supplement, is now issued weekly with the Express, contain- ing about ten columns of interesting reading, adding greatly to the value of that journal. I think, however, that the space occupied in the columns of the paper by that exceedingly v...

Our inability to find room for their contributions will no longer vex our edi' torial soul, and our country and other corres- pondents may therefore take heart of grace.
