No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 March 1867

FEw events, in the brief history of this Colony, have ever caused such a wide spread feeling of sorrow, as the one it is our painful duty to record this day. Not so much because the principal sufferer held a high position amongst us, and has left a numerous family, and an extensive circle of friends, to lament his loss, as that he was suddenly snatched away, when in the enjoyment of health, and plunged, without warning, into a watery grave; with no relative beside him to receive his last look, or join in his latest prayer--no loving fingers to return the last fond pressure of his hand, or close his eyes in death. In another :column will be found from the master, an account of the wreck of, the .Lan of Gerakldton, the loss of her passengers, and, with the exception of two, of her crew. Tte master, and cook only were saved. The schooner sailed from Fremantle on Monday morning, for the purpose of conveying Mr. Shenton to Bunbury, The weather, for'the time of ear, was fine, It appears, ...

OUR BRUSH WITH THE PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 April 1867

OUR BRUSH WITH THE -PIRATES. (From Clamnbers's Journal.). ' Allthis while the lorcha was drawing nearer, and I began to feel seriously uneasy.about, our position. ,Not a shot had been fired, or anything done save these singular preparations. Surely Captain Washburn was not going to yield the vessel without a struggle, And then- this passenger,, what - arguments could he have used to overcome in a few minutes the captain's dislike, and to secure such perfect co-operationjin all his plans ? Were they in league with these pirates ? I had heard of such things, and if so, my fate was certain. ' I gave another glance at the top, and saw that Mr. Penfold, having now ob tained a rest nearly breast-high for "the firearm, .was again aiming at the lorcha, to which my attention was intuitively drawn by the glass. I could perceive the sweeps at work, and her fore-top piled with the dreaded stink-pots. Suddenly, I heard a sharp rifle-like crack overhead, and almost simultaneously saw :a vivid fla...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 April 1867

SotaI *nteUihtnt. WE know of no alteration of any moment in connexion with the melancholy. loss of the " Lass of Geraldton." At the time we went to press we. were not aware of the names of the sailors and passengers. We learn that the names of the crew were Henry Mc.Phersou. SMI.. Lawson, anid Dandy, and P. Thompson, ">'twonatives, the cook, aGerman passenger, name nnknown, and Charles Eades. It does not appear that any of them have left families behind. As might be expected, there have been various suggestions, unfavourable to the truth of the statement made to us by Mr. H. O'Grady, but the depositions of himself and the seaman have confirmed it in all essential respects,.a copy of which was kindly forwarded to us late last evening, from the Colonial Office. • It was unfortunately too late for insert tion, but will appear in our next issue. WE understand that' the " Gordon," after having discharged her cargo, will proceed to Champion Bay to take in lead and copper ores for conve...

STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 April 1867

STEAM COMMUNICATION. A MEETING to consider the introduction of Steam Communication on the coast of the colony was held at the Freemasons' Hotel at 3 o'clock on Monday, the 1st inst. Among those present were Messrs. W. Burges, F. P. Barlee, A. O'Grady Lefroy, L. C. Burges, T. Burges, S. P. Phillips, W. Padbury, A. F. Lee Steer, S, A Barker, R. King, J. G. C. Carr, and C, Von Bibra. Mr. W. Burges took the chair on the invita tion of the meeting, and opened the business by adverting to the purpose for which it had been convened. There could be no doubt that Steam traffic was much needed between Fremantle and the outports. It was a disgrace to the colony that after 37 years' existence it did not possess a single coast-steamer ; and more especially as the more settled parts of the colony ranged over 700 miles of coast-line, which was studded with many thriving ports of the flourishing dis tricts. Steam Communication had its many advantages, which he frequently in other parts of the world...

Dork. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 April 1867

There has been a continuance of beautiful showers, enabling the farmer to get well ahead with his ploughing. The season looks most encouraging. It is rumoured that the Weslyan Minister, who is to arrive by the Strathmore, will be stationed here. He will be heartily welcomed by the members of that body, who have long desired the presence of one of their ,own ministers among them. There is a neat little chapel and commodious Mission House ready for his use. It is much to be regretted that the building intended by its projector, Archdeacon Brown, :as a Mechanics' Hall, still remains useless ex cept for an occasional lecture or children's tea meeting. It is not creditable to York, the third town in the colony, that it is without a public Library and. Reading Room, a convenience which nearly every other town in the colony possesses. The building should either hbe put to the use for which it was erected, or soldand the money returned to the subscribers. A memorial is. being handed round f...

In this day's Inquirer I specially notice the able and practical article on our timber trade, and though it takes the character of a leader, I am satisfied that there is but one party in this colony capable of writing such an article : thoroughly imbued as ...

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 5. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 April 1867

SJOTTINGS BY. JANOLD UIMBRELLA. : !1 told you something last week of. the mnianner in which London shopmen are -stimulated to exert themselves, and before: leaving the subject, will just relate a circumstance that came under my own observation, shewing that the system has its drawbacks as well as advantages. Old Lady Rouger was a good customer at Delaine's, well to do in the world, fastidious, eccentric, taking a fashionable lead in society withall, that rendered it a point of the first importance -she should not have cause of offence given her by her tradespeople. Delaine's had a silkman to whom she was very partial, and by whom she always insisted upon being served. Happening to be making large purchases one afternoon, 'she. desired him to wait upon her her at her own house with an assortment of silks in the" evening; and he took the opportunity," of selling her, by candle light, a most villiandus-looking silk, that .had been lying in the fixtures for years, 'and had become at las...

Ir is.: an easy thing for a man to sit down;, calculate his numerous wants, count them upon his fingers, and 'ask his friends to be good enough to relieve them. All of us can do this ; most of us have done it-when we were very young. But, as we grew older, learning from experience how futile it was to expect others to do that which we ought our selves to perform, we set about the work, and did it without assistance from any body. This is how all great men have risen; no matter whether they shone in the ranks of literature, arts, science, or commerce. If a man would become great, he must be self reliant. Nations are only men multiplied. When their components are individuals -possessing energy, perseverance, inven tion, enterprise, courage, they necessarily become great, as England, France, America: while, . on the other hand,; if they are composed of men wanting these: .qualities, they will never rise above mediocrity :-most probably they. will sink into insignificance and contempt.:...

ROME. OUR ROMAN LETTER. ST. STEPHEN'S DAY. December 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

ROME. OUR ROMAN LETTER. ST. STEPHEN'S DAY. December 26. A Roman Christmas and an English Christ mas might easily pass for twin sisters. Barring an elevated tone of spirituality about the one and a too animal tone about the other, there is a decided family resemblance. Both ar?e alike characterised by family gatherings, by a putting forth of the better traits of human nature, and by a hearty happiness which makes the sternest rigorist unbend and be for the time half tender-hearted. In the nobler days of English life there was probably not a pin to choose between them, after making due allow ance for the difference of clime; but now the Roman Christmas is the more witching of the two. Then it is that the sterling stuff of the Roman character comes into the full light. The Roman may be but a very sorry Christian in practice, and not worthy to hold a candle to the blunt and honest Englishman who'is just now inhaling the frosty air of the Holy City, but that crust is broken up for the ti...

OUR, BANK. THERE was a time when we had no Bank at Fremantle. In those days people,. doing a'large business, kept their money at Perth: .smaller traders, with less. means, were put to the inconvenience of keeping theirs at home. It was felt tc, be a great hardship that the only Bank ing Corporation in the colony, knowing the public was incapable ofhelpirng itself,, would not afford Fremanfle the accommo dation of a Bank. Men sent their cask through. the post, and grumbled at the postage; or went themselves by Steamer,, and. were put to still greater ex pense. "If," said they, " we had only a little opposition, our Bankers would not be quite so independent as they are. They know we have only 'Hobson's. choice;' we must take whatever they please te give us, or go without." In acting as they did, prior to the ad vent of the new bank, the Directors of the; Western Australian did no more than. any of their customers would have done under similar circumstances.
