TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875

To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,-In reference to an accident which oc- curred last Thursday evening to the mail van from Fremantle to Perth, about four miles from the latter place, (the particulars of which are pretty well known here,) I wish to draw atten- tion to the promptitude, civility and presence of mind displayed by the driver William Sheene. When the off hind wheel, being unsound fell to pieces, Sheene at once started off to Perth on one of the horses " barebacked", and brought a covered vehicle back within the quarter-of an hour, for the relief of the passengers, during a strong wind and heavy rain, conveying them to their destination in safety. Whatever objec- tions from time to time have been made to the conveyances on the road or inconveniences con- nected with them, a better "whip'' than Wil- liam Sheene need not be desired. A PASSENGER. August 2nd, 1875.

PARIS FASHIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875

PAEIS FASHIONS. The most remarkable novelties consist less in art than in accessories and trimmings. The spring styles being now established, recherche improves them daily by the addition of some new invention or innovation. Thus, we have the cocarde bow which has decidedly a very independent and unprejudiced air, especially on wide straw rims, or even on the shoulder, or on the bosom. Galoose of gold, or of silver and steel is used to simulate plastrons and tabliers on plain silk materials ; cross-bars of cream surah produce the effect of trellis-work over coloured underskirts; Persian embroidery executed in Algerian floss silk adds a rich effect to lilac ground. The most fashions able make is still the cuirass bodice, and front widths with " chevrons" that is crosscuts sowed on in the shape of a V. Embroidered linens have attained the full vogue which commenced towards the close of last season checked linen is marked with open wheels. The make for these over dresses is usually the...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 3 August 1875

BJ* (totem australian innes. SOLUM NON MCTTAT GENUS. TUESDAY. AUGUST 3, IR75. The memorial to the Governor, now being circulated for signature, which was printed in our last number, for the for- mation Of a line of railway between Guild- ford and Fremantle, contains thirteen clauses, any one of which, if fully discussed might occupy a column at least of this paper ; but we have little to say on the subject, beyoi.d what we have already said, as it consistently ignores the facts that we have already a natural highway between those places, and that the pre- sent insufficiency of means of transport rould be very easily remedied. The proceeding by petition is no doubt both popular and plausible, but the value of a petition must depend, not on the number of signatures, but the fitness of those who sign to give an opinion on the subject of it. All who know anything of this colony, and indeed not of West Australia alone, but of the world at large, know how easy it is to obtain signatures t...

W rr t a I it it fr § cn tx wi. Commissioner of Titles.?In our leader in our last issue, we noticed that tho course adopted in reference to the appointment of a Com- missioner of Titles was a tacit admission that there is "no barrister or solicitor of the English or Colonial Courts of seven years standing and practice" noiv in this colony fit for the office, or any that deemed it worth acceptance. We are in a position, however to say, that there is not only more than one professional gentleman in the colony eligible for the office ; but that, an application from a well known conveyancer was tendered ; and had His Excellency, the Governor in Executive the absolnte authority there is little doubt the application would have been acceded to, and the appoint- ment ratified. Thjts, however, is but another instance, among many, of the autocracy of Down- ing Street when dealing with the affairs of our colony ; and, at the same time, an additional link, in the chain of argument for Responsib...

NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 August 1875

NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) Another of the Mechanics' entertainments came off on Wednesday evening last and was very successful. The audience was not as large as it mighthave been (not more than about fifty being present), but this falling off is pro- bably attributable to the frequency of similar entertainments. Since my last we have had a very heavy fall of. rain. The river has risen considerably, but I do not hear that there is any impediment to traffic. The several road parties will now have to be on the look out, The meat supply of Newcastle has of late been very meagre. In some weeks past only one bullock a week has been offered for sale, and as tor. mutton, it has simply not been heard of in the market for months. Now that bush feed is improving, we may hope for a Detter state of things. A Settler's Ball is about to take place at Leeder's Hotel, of which I will give you further particulars when I am able. At present it promises to be on a grand scale. July, 31st ...

(From a Correspondent.) .' /The weather ia certainly all that we can re ?quire the only draw back is the rain being so late; and when it did commence we had such a glut, people did not get their crops in, or not near what would have been put in if we had ' Aad a more favorable season. The settlers are ; looking forward most anxiously to the railway 'idea from Guildford to1 Fremantle; no doubt it . is a step injthe right direction for progress; that I and Besponsible Government, I think are the j two most essential ideas for W. Australia. As an instance of the present form, this day a man has ridden from the country a distance of sixteen miles to do some business at our Court House. To his great disgust he has to stay at an Hotel until to morrow, for on his arriving in Town.he is informed our Resident Magistrate is on a visit or leave of absence or some- thing to the inconvenience of the public. But tho best of it our clerk of court (if we are sup- pered to have one) is also on leave...

This came before the court on the return of the Justices to a writ of Certiorari granted on the 26th of June last on the application of Mr. Henry Gray, Merchant, at Geraldton ordering a certain conviction to be brought into the Su- preme Court, (being the conviction under which the said Henry Gray had been lined, and other- wise punished for an offence under the Customs Ordinance of 1860.) The Attorney General appeared in support of the conviction. Mr. Burt appeared for Mr. Gray.

He seemed lively in disposition. I saw him most of the day on Sunday, August 1st, he seemed just the same as usual. I don't know of anything likely to have affected his mind. I never had much con- versation with him, tho* we were on friendly terms, I don't know what time he went to bed on Sunday night, he had not come out of his room at 9 o'clock on Monday morning. About 10 o'ciock I heard a shout in his room, I went to the door and asked what was the matter, there was no answer, and I then sent for his father. The door was locked inside.

Correspondence TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 August 1875

ornsguttfrfiui. To the Editor op the W.A. Times. Sir,?In justice to myself and the great majority of the colonists, by whom a duty on flour and breadstuff's is considered of essential importance to the progress of the colony, I must ask you to publish this letter, and in all courtesy I will challenge yon to impair the facts I shall adduce in support of that duty. I am prepared to allow that fair measure of credit to which you are entitled for the ability of your articles on the subject, but I feel bound to point out that you have not considered the arguments in its favor, and that you have dis- played more the spirit of a partisan than a calm review of the question would justify ; that you have wilfully ignored these arguments I cannot believe, and conceiving it possible that they have not been brought before you, I will endeavour to repair the omission. The colony possesses an immense area of land fit for agricultural purposes. We are importing breadstuff's to the annual value of ....
