SUPPOSED TRACES OF LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

SUPPOSED TRACES OF LEICHHARDT. 9 Through the courtesy of Baron von Mueller, the Melbourne Telegraph has. received a copy of the following letter, addressed to him by a Mr. Edward Bright, on the subject of some supposed traces of Leichhardt and his party, which Mr. Bright, who is in charge of some travelling stook, claims to have discovered in the Lower Flinders and Cloncurry dis- trict. Mr. Bright has been urged by the Geographical Society to follow up these traces, which, it is considered, may very likely throw some light on Leichhardts fate: " Queensland, 96 Camp, "9th February, 1886.

Wit and Humour. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

In a trying position-A Judge. No man of honour will steal a kiss from a girl when he can just as well give her one. A lady calls the little memorandum her butcher sends in with the meat " Peneillings by the weigh." An old bachelor says that women are 'cute. They never show their hand until they get a handsome ring to go with it. " Heads I win." us the scalp-hunter observ- ed while he hung them round his belt. " Tails you lose." as the farmer said to his yearling lambs. "No indeed." exclaimed Mrs. Podsnap, energetically. " I don't believe in the exten- sion of woman's suffrage at all. She suffers enousrh now." Young man to chemist-" Can you give me anything to remove superfluous hair ?" Chunist, thoughtfully scratching his bald head-" Hem ! Why don't you get married.

A Good Run. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 27 March 1886

I A Good Rim. " I guess," said a railroad man, " that I have worked aboard the fastest railroad on earth." "Where?" exclaimed half-a-dozen bystanders at once. *' Oh, out West," replied the railroad man. " Yes," he continued, after a pause, " I reckon I had the fastest run on record. You see, it happened some years ago new. The line I worked on was a big gradient for about two hundred miles. Well, I wanted to do something big, so I went to the engineer, and said, "Jim, I calculate we hare got to slip down this here gradient somewhat lively. Suppose we astonish the people alongside this line ?" Jim was game, and worked the steam up to busting point. He opened the regulator, and away we slid. The wind went'past the cars like a hurricane, and some of the passengers got shaky, and inquired if we were trying to run that train off the end of the line right into the Pacific, t said we were erecting a big record for contract, bnt they seemed to think we were going in for starting a private c...

RESIGNATION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

RESIGNATION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. THE West Australian says : - The comparative prosperity, progress, aiiA_ and hopef uluess oí the past year or two in W estera Australian history, has, ia certain quarters, been viewed with alarm aud disgust. Every effort has been made . in those. quarters to stir up amongst the people disco »tent and distrust, as the only means-under existing circumstances of giving renewed life to an agitation which was apparently dying out. As a last resort a regularly organised personal campaign was commenced against a Governor who, to say the least of him,, has been most liberal in his policy, and. most anxious to forward the interests of the colony aud to meet tho wishes of its inhabitants. Eagerly, therefore, was the recent resignation of the Attorney General clutched at, to form the text for renewed invective. Ono ridiculous print an- nounced that there were " grave rumours" that His Excellency's conduct had been, such as to lead to his immediate recall, w...

MARIAN WILLIS DRAMATIC COMPANY. OPENING NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

MARIAN WILLIS DRAMATIC ÍOMPANY. OPENING NIGHT. THE Marian Willis Dramatic Company opened their Perth season on Munday night with the "Lady of Lyons." On the whole their opening performance may be said to have proved a de- cided success. The house was an ap- preciative one, and as regards the at- tendance little more could have been de- sired. Miss Marian Willis is a capable actress and she is backed np by several members of the troupe who possess consid reable experience and dramatic talent. As Pauline Miss Willis had excellent oppor- tunities of maintaining her reputation a3 an emotional actress. Mr. Steele plays well but .scarcely looks the part of Claude Melnotte. Mr. Keogh makes a good Col- onel Damas. Mr. IT. Dalmain as Beau sceant mak^s a very fiue villian aud has a j tragic way of dragging one leg after the i other which would not disgrace the divine j Irving. As Mons. Deschappelles, Mr. Bellah* reminds one rather of a young 1 curate inculcating virtue iuto the minds ; of his...

DEPARTURE OF THE S.S. ALBANY. THE Bailing of the s.s. Albany on Monday for Cambridge Gulf and intermediate ports gave rise to the greatest interest. Tho 1-45 train was crowded with friends of the parties going North, His Excel- lency the Gowruor and Lady Broome be- ing amongst the travellers to see them off. A iioliday had been given at the Govern- ment offices, and so great was the crush that it was some time after the advertised hour before the train got under way. Arrived at Fremantle the Albany should have started within half an ¡ hour, in which case everything would have i passed off to admiration. But, unfortun- ately, a rumour spread that certain plans of the greatest consequence, necessary to tho carrying ont of the proposed works at the Cambridge Gulf township, had been left behind. It was supposed that they had been handed te the Resident's clerk and had remained in the cab which conveyed him to tlie station. The telephone and the Solice* were put in motion, and the espatc...

OSTRICH FARMING AT THE CAPE, ITS PROGRESS AND DECLINE. FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 3 April 1886

OSTRICH FARMING AT THE CAPJS, ITS PROGRESS AND DE- CLINE. FIELD. ¡ It is a somewhat strange coinoidenoe that two -unprecedented industries should hare arisen almost simultaneously in a colony which, but for their timely intervention at the period, would in all probability have lapsed into a state of hopeless bankruptcy. The marvellous and fascinating story of the South african Diamond Fields has been often told. The fabled voyage of thei*clasBic Argonauts pales to insignificance when compared to this nineteenth century reality. Within the area of a few hundred yards were crowded dense masses of human beings of nearly every . nationality and colour under the Bun. The possible chance of picking np, in one little glittering pebble, an independency for life was not to be resisted. Men left their farms, taking with them provision waggons, and every ne'cessary requisite in the way of picks, shovels, barrows, stores, &o. Clerks in whole- sale warehouses and in banks, and drapers, a...

He was born Sept. 9,1807, graduated at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1829, and was or- dained to a country curacy. It was not, however, as a scholar or divine, but as a poet, that Mr. Trench became first known. About 1837, while holding the incumben- cy of Curdridge Chapel, a district iu thc extensive parish of Bishop Waltham, Hauts, lie published two volumes of poems, entitled " Sabbatiou, Honor Neale, aud other Poems," and the "Story of Justin Martyr," somewhat in the style of Words- worth. These poems, which Avere favour- ably received, were followed by " Geno- veva," " Elegiac Poems," and " Poems from Eastern Sources." Among those who took an interest in the author was the Rev. Samuel Wilberforce, then rec- tor of Alverstoke, to w...

Three months of this year have gene by and things seem no further ad- vanced than they were wheu it commenced, this is being treated badly to say the least of it after all the promises made when Mr. Gardiner left.

There is perhaps not 'a more tantalizing thing to the male elements of a household than weekly cleanings. The sterner sex can- not imagine why rooms should be dismantled once every week. Now a little managemejt is all that is required, and the gentlemen of the house need never come in contact with furniture in out of the way places. It is every woman's duty to make home pleasant and comfortable for her lord and master, and it is by attention to these matters in a house that a wife can cause her husband to look upon his home as a resting place. I have visited houses where all the work was left till the three last days of the week, and the result lias .been that when you went downstairs in tb¿ morning you found the hall or passage ciprded with furniture from say the dining and drawing rooms.
