Country News. NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 30 July 1875
County News. &nbsp; NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent. ) I am glad to report that the several enter- tainments which have already taken place for the benefit of the good people in and about Newcastle have, one and all, proved decidedly successful, and a great relief from the monotony of our usual routine. The fortnightly musical and literary meetings at the Mechanics' Hall have drawn together very good audiences, and the funds of the Newcastle Mechanics' Insti- tute have been consequently increased. The Good Templars have similar enteitainments, although not quite so often repeated, which seem to be most popular. The winter Assembly Balls are also very attractive, and likely to keep up their popularity. On Wednesday next, the 28th inst., another of the Mechanics entertainments is to come off, and on the 4th proximo a tea meeting, concert, and readings, are to take place under the auspices of the Good Templars. These are all very legitimate sources of amusement and recre...

OUR MANLY SISTERS. (Liberal Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
OUR MANLY SISTERS. (Liberal Review.) Many women are actuated by an unhealthy craving after notoriety. Thus they are loud in their complaints that they are not permitted to vote at parliamentary elections, and that they are not allowed to engage in many occu- pations, which are now, they assert, monopo- lized by men. Any one listening to the waitings of these hardly-used females would imagine that they are treated so badly by that selfish creature, man, that their lives are positive burdens to them. It is he, they declare, who had placed them iu the second i position, while he has arrogated to himself the ' first, which, by the way, he is often told, he is \ not nearly so well qualified to fill as they are., It is asserted that they are bound to throw off the oppression of his tyrannical sway, and to show him that they are not the impotent things which he appears to image them. What is to be the definite result of their labours they have not yet condescended to explain, but it is und...

Coiuiug itcfos. BUNBURY. Our correspondent has forwarded us the fol- lowing address, presented by the inhabitants of tlic district of Wellington to the Hon. F. P. La rice, together with that geutlt'iuau's reply :? To the Honorable Frederick Palgrave Barlee, Colonial Secretary ol the colony ot Western Australia &c. Honorable, and respected Sir,? On taking your departure, as we hope only ior a time, from the shore of Western Australia, we the undersigned inhabitants ot the district of Wellington, beg leave to tender to youan ex. prcssion ot the sentiments which we, in «om 111011 with a great majority of the community entertain towards you. Occupying as you have done for nearly twonty years "the position of Colonial Secretarj', you have been largely instrumental in wielding the districts of this colony. During that period it has emerged from a state of comparative ob* scurity to a position which bids fair to rank amongst the other more favored provinces of Australia. Some part ...
TERRIBLE EARTHQUAKE IN MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
TERRIBLE EARTHQUAKE IN MEXICO. The New York papers publish tele- grams descriptive of a terrible earthquake which has resulted in the loss of 70 lives and an immense amount of damage to property, in Mexico. On Friday, the 11th of February, at half past 8 p.m., a very severe shaking was felt in the capital of Guadalajara, accompanied by a strange subterranean sound. A few moments before the earthquake the heavens wer« clouded, and the atmosphere hot and suffocating. The shakings were of a tremulous character terminating in oscil- latory movements, and lasted about ten seconds. The phenomenon was so marked that it seemed as if the great terraqueous mass was about to pass from underfoot, and for a moment the falliug in of every roof was expected. Pour minutes afterwards the shaking was re- peated with equal force and with the most tremendous noises. The public squares and every place where it was thought the falling houses could not reach were taken possession of by the multitude, who ...

OUR BEAUTIFUL BAND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
OUR BEAUTIFUL BAND. ;to the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,?I am one of the Fremantle Volunteers, arid having a fancy, to hearing the band play I am sorely disappointed innot having heard a tune played since, about two months before thc Queen's :.-birthday, which is nearly 6 months without ^hearing the band. We have good instruments and some of the best performers in thc colony ; we have also a man who answers to the name of band master as often as his salary becomes due ; but except the chink of his wages, which is .£24 per year, we obtained no other music ?from lum since March last, (oidy on the Queen's birthday) which leaves us to pay hun, nearly £12 for one day's play, and I and many others think this is " paying too dear for our whistle." As I stated before we can get no band at our parades ; and when the Officers of thc French frigate gave a rball at Fremantle, they had to send to Perth for music. When Mr. Senior was band master, such was not the case; but we often had music on...
INDEPENDENT ORDER OF RECHABITES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
INDEPENDENT ORDER OF RECHABITES. To the Editor op the W.A. Times. Sir,?When I wrote my last letter upon Rechabitism 1 was rather confined to space or else I intended to have enlarged upon that subject. The subject of Rechabitism is rather a difficult one for me to handle, for it means a great deal. Certainly it is not a secret society, but a benefit society, that has for its object the reclaiming of those that have gone astray, from the devouring demon of intemper- ance. It has also for its object the relieving of the brotherhood under affliction ; and a source of comfort to their widows and orphans. How many of the brotherhood throughout the world have received, and are still receiving benefits from this noble institution ! How many a family would now be destitute and crippled by the long inness of its members, doctors bills and funeral expenses, had it not been for the Independent Order of Rechabites. The sub scriptioii to thisjuobleandphilanthroxjical society is small. Comparativ...
CHURCH OF ENGLOND SUSTENTATION FUND. To the Laity Members of the Church of England, in the Diocese of Perth, in the Province of Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
CHURCH OF ENGLOND SUSTENTATION FUND. To the Laity Members of the Church, of England, in the Diocese of Perth, in thc Province of Western Australia. Mt Bkethben and Friends in the Loud Jesus Cubist,?Our Diocesan Synod has signi lien its desire that I should address to you some words of exhortation concerning a measure which, as regards the inhabitat ts of this colony generally, is of the very highest importance to their well-being, and which, as regards our branch of the Church of Christ, is peremptorily necessary to its efficiency and usefulness, if not to its existence in the land. This measure is the formation of a permanent fund for the par- tial maintenance of a body of clergy, which has heen set on foot by the Synod under the name of the Clergy Sustentation Fund. In the report laid before the Synod during its session ol' this present year the Committee of Management were able to say that thc un- dertaking had at that time " made a start and little more." Now, a further and very...
Correspondence. EDUCATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. "TIMES," [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875
&lt;&ax r esjyffttbfnfk EDUCATION. To the Editor of tue W. A. " Times," Sir, I think it necessary to draw attention to thc fact that parents generally do not fully compre- hend our new Education Act. This is very j much to be regretted, and without doubt mili- tates against the success of teachers generally. There seems to exist an impression that thc fees go to the teacher, while of course under thc new regulations, this is altogether erroneous. The " result system" is by no means understood here, otherwise I have no doubt parents would endeavour moro earnestly to co-operate with the teacher. Under our present system, unless a child attends 90 days, out of every half ycav, he does not reckon as an effective scholar j in other words he is not eligible for examination ; and virtually is not a scholar at all. Hence it follows, that the want of regularity on the part of scholars, is a serious loss to all teachers, both as regards their stutus and their remuneration. The...
