ERRATUM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

ERRATUM. TO THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-It was the dictum of the oracle of the Eighteenth Century that "a man who would make a pun would pick a pocket," and, if that be so, I should be obliged to (as I think) your printer for preventing my so committing my- self. As however, in doing so, he makes me talk nonsense, and as most men prefer rather to be considered rogues than fools, I will ask you to allow me to explain, that, as the Council of Elvira was remarkable for the severity of its Acts, and as the Latin name for the city is Illiberis, commonly spelt Eliheris, I ventured to call it an ' Illiberal,' not a ( Liberal' Council. I blush of course, as every man does who has to explain a paronomasia. I am, Sir, yours, &c, P. L. (We apologise for the mistake. On referring to our correspondent's copy, we find that the word 'Illiberal' was most plainly written. ED. W.A.)

A RAILWAY SYSTEM. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

A RAILWAY SYSTEM. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-I see by your issue of the 17th inst., that Mr. Clarkson, is advocating the Chittering route for the Eastern Railway Extension ; and, no doubt, shortly, some resident of York or its neighborhood will answer his letter, from a York point of view. As one thoroughly disinterested in the Eastern Districts generally (so far as property is concerned), I may perhaps be allowed to give my idea of the route that is likely to suit the most colonists, and therefore the one most likely to pay. We have to look forward to again extending our railways, when York, Newcastle, and Northam are joined to Guildford, and I think it a pity our Gov- ernment did not in the first place lay out a railway system for the whole ¿colony, instead of going in for sections. Had a *"" system," however large, once been approved, we might then, yearby year, as we could afford it, work out sections of that system. With a system in view, I think a line from Gui...

STARVATION FOR NOTORIETY. (Daily News, August 9th.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

STARVATION POE NOTORIETY. (Daily News, August 9th.) Dr. Tanner's fast came to a close on August 7th at noon. For forty days he has been one of the most notorious people in the two hemispheres. It is probably a safe hypothesis that Dr. Tanner has been fasting by way of advertisement. In the reign of James I., a doctor in the University of Oxford tried a similar, though we suppose less genuine, dodge. He used to deliver long sermons while sound asleep. People were as much interested two hundred years ago in a doctor who preached when he should have been sleeping as we are in a doctor who fasts, and is unwell, when he ought to be eating. It was reserved for the British Solomon to detect and expose the preaching impostor. The poor hypocrite confessed that he had found him- self " a buried man in the University," and that he had delivered his drowsy sermons merely to win notoriety. In the same way Dr. Tanner may have been a buried man in Minnesota. According to one of the American journa...

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE IN A LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. [From the New Zealand Herald, Aug. 17.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE IN A LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY. [From the New Zealand Herald, Aug. 17.] An extraordinary scene took place in the House of Representatives, Wellington, yesterday even- ing. Sir George Grey commenced to speak on the Maori Prisoners Bill, when, seeing Mr. Hall cor- recting proofs, he objected to go on till the Pre- mier listened. The Premier still went on reading, and Sir George Grey remained silent. Several members attacked the Premier for taking no notice, but as he finished one proof he started on another. After standing half an hour, Sir George Grey got a messenger to bring a chair into a pas- sage between the seats, and propped himself against the back of it. Innumerable points of order were raised to get over the difficulty, but with no good result. Motions of various kinds were put, but still Sir George Grey stood up, with folded arms and bowed head, vainly waiting for the Premier to pay attention. Sir George Grey said he had a duty to perform to the House and cou...

THE EASTERN RAILWAY EXTENSION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

THE EASTERN RAILWAY EXTENSION. To THE EDITOE OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-In your last issue you published a let- ter from Mr. Bernard Clarkson, deprecating the late decision of the Council, that the con- tinuation of the Eastern Districts Railway should follow the direct line to York, lately surveyed by the Works Department. In that letter Mr. Clarkson asserts that by following this route the railway would "pass through perfectly worthless country from Guildford to York the whole way-notwithstanding Mr. Burt's assertion in Council that there is ' some good agricultural land there.' (No one except Mr. Burt has ever yet discovered it)." I am not aware from what report.of the debate Mr. Clarkson was quoting, but I do not find the words which he attributes to me in your columns. Tn your report of my speech during the debate on Mr. Sheñton's resolution I am made to say : " The line to York-he was informed-would traverse, or tap, a greater ex- tent of really good agricultural land than t...

HOLLOWAT'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.-Female Complaints.-The disorders peculiar to women are the most delicate and difficult to conduct to a favourable termination, unless they obtain prompt relief from well accredited sources. Upon their early and judicious treatment hangs the momentous question whether women enjoy strength, sound- ness, and cheerfulness, or pine away in weakness disease, and misery. Holloway'« inestimable pre- parations arelthemost reliable remedies for restor- ing weakened or suspended functions. The Oint- ment should be rubbed on the back and stomach at least ten minutes every night and morning till re- lief is obtained, and perfect functional regularity ia induced. While thus using the ointment, Hollo way's Pills should he freely taken in order to purify the blood and cleanse the system.-(ADVT.)

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) ALBANY, Sept. 14. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

£81 NTtYIETTE1S. (From our own correspondents.) ALBANY, Sept. 14. It is so long since I wrote that I scarcely know where to begin. There has been so little of importance to communicate from here that I have refrained from writing 'at all, knowing that the West Australian would have ample to fill its columns with the debates in the Legis- lative Council. Now that the session is over, I will occasionally give you a few jottings from Albany. We have had exceptionally fine weather for some time past, which is quite a treat after a wet winter. I hear that the 'observer' has registered over 30 inches of rain since 1st Janu- ary. Speaking of the weather, reminds me of a great omission that should be remedied if possible. ' Observers ' have been appointed at the principal towns of the colony, and I believe they hand in their reports at the telegraph stations every morning,-to be exchanged with all the other stations, and exhibited outside the office, for public information.

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, SEPT. 21, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

WEST AUSTRALIAN. Vigilans Et Audax PERTH, TUESDAY, SEBT. 21, 1880. NOT long ago, we drew attention to a paper in the Victorian Review upon the future of North-East Australia, and contrasted, in a general way, the expectations of Mr. CARL FEILBEBG, the writer, in regard to the development of that territory, with those which we might reasonably entertain as to the corresponding portion of our own colony. In the September number of the Review, in an article on North-West Aus- tralia, the same subject is taken up and elaborated, and the advantages of our own tropical region, as compared with tropical Queensland, are clearly brought out. The article is more particularly interesting at the present time on account of its bearing upon the "native question," which has to some extent occupied the attention of the public of late, and which to a colony in certain parts of which the blacks are in large numbers, is one of very considerable importance. Mr. FEILBERG'S aim in the paper to which this...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 21 September 1880

(MISIONAL NOTES. LOCAL ANJO GENERAL. WE are requested to state that the third Assembly Ball of the season will take place at St. George's Hall on Friday qext the 24th inst. Dan- cing to commence at 8*30. IN our last issue, when commenting upon rumours in regard to the marriage of Lady Bur dett-Coutts, we stated that telegrams which had appeared in the colonial papers left ns in doubt as to whether a marriage was really to take place or not. We now lind that the contradiction of this rumour telegraphed ont not long ago was a mis- take. It appears that the Standard published a statement that the Baroness was about to contract a matrimonial union with Mr. Ashmead-Bartlett, M.P. for Eye. This statement it was which waa contradicted. The gentleman in question is not the member for Eye but a younger brother, who has not yet completed his twenty ninth year. Mr, Bartlett is an American by birth, naturalised a short time since, and was employed by the Baron* ess, in TurkejL as a distributor ...
