The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 August 1875
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN TIMES SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. &nbsp; &nbsp; FRIDAY, AUGUST 6, 1875. As is always the case when any portion of a people is separated from its parent stock, our American cousins have intro- duced many new words into our common language, and applied some to purposes for which they were not originally in- tended. To this we owe the present use of the term tramway, meaning thereby a light railway ; formerly when the flange to keep carriages on them was on their sides, they were called tramways, but, when the flange was transferred to the wheel, they became railways. Tramways were first in use in mineral districts, and had been preceeded by wooden trackways, the wood being after- wards protected from friction by iron plates ; these were replaced by cast iron trams, and, subsequently, by cast iron rails. In the contemplation of railways on the tramway system being introduced into this colony, a few notes on the sub- ject may not be uninteresting to our...

Vestry Meeting.?At a meeting of the Vestry of St. Georges Cathedral, held on Wed- nesday afternoon last, a report, upon the con- dition of the Cathedral which we publish in another column was submitted and adopted. At the close of the meeting the Dean made a forcible appeal to the members to render their aid towards the Sustentation fund, adding very appropriately that on the eve of the departure of His Lordship the Bishop, the active co-opera- tion of the parishioners, in this matter would be accepted as a parting tribute to one who had done so much for the Church. We hope to see the appeal liberally responded to, by all inter- ested in the welfare of the Church. Church Land Grants.?At the last meeting of the Vestry, Mr. Dale suggested that the various grants of land given to the Churches might in some way be utilised to aid in the pro- posed Susten...

OUR LETTER HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 August 1875
OUR LETTER HOME. &nbsp; The interest excited consequent upon the departure of the Hon. F. P. Parlee, Colonial Secretary, by the last mail, and the necessary changes thus brought on in the Government Departments has almost altogether abated, and our political sky is in a state of placidity, which may almost be called uncomfortable. The meeting of our Legislative Council is rapidly approaching, but as yet those who pull the strings, have made no sign. Our present Governor is silent on tins subject, and in truth in almost everything he has proved that he has no intention of showing his hand. There seems however to be a general opinion, that the absence of Mr. Barlee, will be severelly felt, and that our legislative proceedings will be more tame, and less interesting than usual. One thing is certain, that the government, will miss his energetic voice, fluent tongue, and pointed and pithy arguments. Responsible Government is still floating about on the political water, but nothin...
THE END IS ALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
THE END IS ALL. A little toil, a little weariness; A little disappointment or success; A little scorn, rebuke and shaine ; A little vanity or fame ; A little gladness or distress,? Then the years about us press, And the greater with the less, Lie down the same. Fickle their joys who, careless, dwell secure, Or, breathless, follow pleasure's painted lure; Cold self, vain passion these enslave j Eo'n Honor may delude the brave ; But those are happy who endure, Longing only to be pure, Seeking joys Divinely sure Beyond the grave.

Conntru. 2Ufo«. FREMANTLE. (From our own correspondent.) THE PORT TOPICS. The French war frigate, " Curieux" on its way to New Caledonia, put in here for repairs, is expected to be ready ior sea on Friday next. Captain Chatnpeyron and his officers, during their short stay with us, have Veen invited to every ball and party, of any pretentious, given during the past month. These manifestations of our hospitality have met with due recipro- city from the captaiu and officers of the " Guri eux." Their courteous attentions have quite won the good opinion of the ladies, and indeed of all with whom they have come into social in- tercourse. The proud halt educated youth, and the well to do uncouth colonials, might with advantage and credit to themselves, copy that polished politness, so natural even to the french seaman. Proposed Railway.?The prevailing opin- ion here is that Mr. Randall on railways is Mr. Randell out of his depth. He is evidently im- mersed in his steamboat proprietory, and...

Sir, ?Will you kindly correct in your next issue an unintentional error in your "Letter Home." u The Good Templars are" not " start ing ^a monthly journal in support of their cause." The "Temperance Advocate," as its name implies, will, if issued, (of which there seems every probability,) represent all sections of Tem. perance, and is not officially connected with any Society.

YORK. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
YORK. (From our own Correspondent.) A tea-meeting to celebrate the Centenary of Daniel O'Connell was given last evening in St. Patrick's Schoolroom, York. A great number were present, among them we noticed J. T. Monger, Esq., M.L.C. It was intended that the Rev. P. J. Gibney should occupy the Chair, but owing to circumstances, he was unable to be present, and as it was thought it should be filled by an Irishman, Mr. J. Lloyd was invited to preside, which he did to the satisfaction of all. Mr. Whitely spoke at some length on the principal features connected with the life of O'Connell in a very lucid manner. It is a pity we have not many such men so gifted as this speaker. He would not disgrace any platform in the colony. Several other speakers followed interspersed with song, and the meeting passed off in a very pleasant manner. We must not omit to mention that the ex-member for York, J. H. Monger Esq., was not forgotten, and kind words were spoken, wishing he may quickly return to h...

%> Hestat gustralian iimcs. SOLUM NON MDTAT GENUS. TuSSI?AUGlj^l0riH75. Is there coal in Western Australia??coal not .imported, but native to the soil, and is it, if existent here, available for com- mercial purposes, for steam by land and water, for smelting our metaliierous ores, for gas, or other uses ? This is a question to which au answer in the affirmative would open a vista of prosperity for the .future,?prosperity more solid, because more lasting than could be expected fruin the discovery of gold. Coal is reported as having been found in two places in the colony, and as prob- ably existing in many others. In 1848 Captain then Mr. Eoe, discovered a large seam showiug a width of surface of 64 feet in the bed of the Fitzgerald river into which he dug with such tools as he bad from 3 to 4 feet deep without pierc- ing it; and Mr, Geegoky has had the reputation of having discovered coal on the Irwin Kiver, and was we believe rewarded by a large grant of land by the Government o...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,? The thought struck me the other day when I saw the M.R. Volunteers ?' toiling" up Mount Eliza," for the purpose of holding their parade, on a portion of the Rifle Range lately cleared of the scrub, whether a better piece of ground for that purpose could not be obtained nearer the centre ot the city; and, during a stroll that I took yesterday, round the back of Perth, I came upon a piece of ground which 1 find is a reserve, called Russell Square, with streets cleared and running throught it, at right angles, and enclosed all round by the fences of the ad- joining grants ; it is situated on rising ground adjoining some of the pensioners cottages; com- mands a capital view of the city, and has a good macadamized road leading to it; and is, moreover, a very short distance from the Pen- sioner's Barracks, where the volunteers often parade. Now, with a very trifling expense this reserve might be cleared of the small quantity of banksia scrub now gro...
SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4TH. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
SUPREME COURT, (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) Wednesday, August 4th, The Queen on the prosecution of Henry Gray v Fairbairn, Burges, and Davis, Justices. On the 18th June last a Writ of Certiorari had been obtained on behalf of Mr. Henry Gray of Geraldton, Merchant, directed to the above named Justices, commanding them to return into the Supreme Court, a certain record of conviction, whereby Henry Gray had been convicted of making a false declaration under the Customs Ordinance 1860. On the return of the Magistrates being filed, a motion to quash the conviction was set down for argument on the 4th inst, and the case then came on for argument. The Attorney General appeared for the Justices, and Mr. Burt for Mr. Gray. On the Attorney General addressing the Court his attention was called to the taot that by the Writ of Certiorari the Justices were required to return the entirety of the convic- tion. Bythe return a portion of the conviction, that is the condemnation of the goods,...

MODERN YOUNG MEN (Broad Arrow.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
MODEBN YOUNG MEN (Broad Arrow.) " Young men are not what they used to be," is a remark no one can fail to hear constantly made by many a veteran and manya finished gentleman of the old school, and attention being thus called to the subject, few of us can avoid mak- ing observations and comparing the facts of the present with the well-remembered incidents of the past. The conclusion is then inevitable, that young men generally but more especially ^young officers, are not what they were. We will not say that in essential quality the young man has degenerated, or that when the actu- alities of service have worn off the super- ficial incrustation which has accumulated on him, just as barnacles accumulate on the supports of a sea-pier, he may not present himself with a very different as- pect to that which he now frequently presents in a garrison town. But in some cases the young, officer of the present day is not either a good or a fair specimen of what the young English- man should be,...
NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 August 1875
NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The proposed Good Templar gathering came off last Wednesday evening in the Mechanics' Hall, and was attended by a very large audi- ence. The weather was propitious, and many were consequently present, who would have been kept away under less auspicious circum- stances. The entertainment consisted of a Tea meeting and music, with addresses from those interested in% the cause ol Good Temphtry. The object of this gathering was a good one. The Good Templars of Newcastle considered that the time had arrived when some attempt should be made to have a building of their own, wherein to hold the lodye meetings and entertainments; and, at the suggestion of one ot the members, who have the interest of the cause very warmly at heart, it was proposed that a tea-meeting should take place, the pro- ceeds of which should be applied to sending for as many fancy articles a8 funds would allow for a bazaar, to take place shortly after the commencement of the nex...
