Orders may then be obtained at those places on the United Kingdom, and any of the Austra- lian colonies.

FARM AND STATION. SQUATTING NOTES, FROM A CORRESPON- DENT IN THE RIVERINA DISTRICT. You ask me for some notes on pastoral matters from this part of the . world. In complying with your request, and in the hope that it may interest your country readers, I will commence by clipping the following from the columns of the Hay Riverine Grazier, of the 14th inst., which will show your West Australian readers what is being done on one station in this district : COBAE STATION.-At Cobar station, or rather on the varions blocks of country recently purchased by the Messrs Allison from David O'Neil, extensive improvements are being carried out. Since this property changed hands, something over twelve mouths ago, 400 miles of six*wire, fencing have beed erected at a cost of £34 per mile. 200,000 yards of tank sinking has been completed, and work of this kind is still proceeding. The price paid for clay tonks is at the rate of 10d per yard, or for roch 15d, and labour is fairly plentiful. The tanks...

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 September 1880

MOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. IT is difficult to understand that blind veneration for persons in high places, or that obtuseness, which ever it may be, which can dictate such effusions as that which appeared on Wednes- day last, signed " Verus." . Vevus' informs the public that he will continue to direct their atten- tion to the proceedings of their elected members and of ourselves,-proceedings originated and con- tinued " in the interest of a very small minority of the population of the colony, the interests of the majority being altogether ignored." What, we would ask, have these most reprehensible pro- ceedings been, against which ' Venís' declaims ? Simply that members considered it their duty, in view of the circumstances in which they found the colony placed, to make a stand against illegal ex- penditure, and to take steps for providing that Appropriation Acts of the Legislature should in future be respected. People who, like ? Verus,' think that such a proceeding-taken under such...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VlGILAJíS ET ArDAX PERTH, FSIJDAY^SEPT. ¿TTSSOT TEETT'^Í^F^^^IRE^O^^BILE GOVERNMENT IN THE COLONIES. WE have no wish to renew a controversy which for the present has been practically, set aside, for, as our correspondent ' COLO >*IST' states, notwithstanding the fact that the adoption of Responsible Government is still weekly urged with dogged persist- ency in one particular quarter, the general public take but little interest in the ques- tion. And such being the case, it is doubt- less wiser, from our own point of view, to leave the subject alone, than to fan the faint embers of a discussion which it would serve no practical purpose at present to re- vive. At the same time it may not be un- interesting to our readers to learn some- thing-from an abstract point of view-in regard to the erigin of a term and of a con- stitutional system of which they have heard so much of late years. And a short sketch of the evolution of Responsible Govern- ment in the coloni...

A PLEA FOR CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 September 1880

A PLEA FOR CRICKET. "WE gladly published in our last impres- sion a letter under this heading, whicn we trust may have some effect in bringing about the object desired. The practice of manly sports by our young men should certainly in every way be encouraged, and the youth of Perth are by no means so much addicted to this practice as we should wish to see. When the Duke of WELL- INGTON asserted that the battle ©f Water- loo was won on the Eton cricket field, he was stating in metaphorical language what no doubt was actually true -To the cricket field, to the river, to the healthf ulness of mind and body which the vigorous physical exercises of their youth impart to young Englishmen, is chiefly to be attributed that energy, fearlessness, truthfulness, which has given the British nation the grand position of which we are all so justly proud, and which has built up that magni- ficent empire on which the sun never sets.

TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. BRITISH AND FOREIGN. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.]   ANOTHER PLOT AGAINST THE CZAR'S LIFE. ST. PETERSBURG, Sept. 3. Renewed uneasiness has been caused through reports which are now current, to the effect that a further plot has been dis- covered against the life of the Czar. His Majesty left this city a day or two ago on one of his customary visits to lavadia, in the Crimea, and it is said that the railway in the vicinity of Charkoff, which is on the main line between Moscow and Odessa, has been discovered to have been mined, in a manner similar to that adopted at Moscow last year. His Majesty and suite have reached their destination in safety, the at- tempt to blow up the train, if made at all, having proved abortive. ATTEMPT TO WRECK A TRAIN. LONDON, September 14. A discovery has been made of a projected attempt to wreck a train on the London and North-Western Railway.

"INTO WHAT HANDS?" TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 September 1880

" INTO WHAT HANDS?" To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-We were told on Saturday last that the " huge balance against the colony" was not (as our " dreamers" imagine) produced by adminis- trative mismanagement, but was simply the re- sult of constitutional defects in the present sys- tem of Government. Now, although, I du not deny the existence of serious defects in that system, no one but your Fremantle contempor- ary, is at all likely to " dream" that those de- fects have anything whatever te do with the dis- creditable financial mess in which the country has been involved. That portion of the public which has given the matter any serions atten- tion, can readily see [that this ' mess ' is dis- tinctly the result of certain errors on the part of those who have lately been -administering the constitution, and has not resulted from the nature of the constitution administered. That accounts have been'kept in such a way that a deficit arose without the, Government being aware o...

TEE NORTHERN RAILWAY ARBITRATION CASE. - [Before the Arbitrator*--Messrs. Moore & Steere.] FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24. . The Acting Attorney General, with whom Mr. Howell, for the Crown ; Mr. S. H. Parker, with him Mr. Burt, 'for the' contractor." * The Acting Attorney General this morning pro- ceeded to sum up the case for the Government. The first claim made by the contrator, and sub- mitted to arbitration, was in respect of a sum of £2557 Is. 10d., being the difference in the sum paid him by the Government over and above the amount of the original contract (¿50,000) and the sum which he now claimed in respect of work actually performed, in connection with deviations, altera- tions, and additions. The defence of the Govern- ment to this claim was two-fold. In the first place the contract between the parties was a statutory contract to construct the line for £50,000, plus the alterations, which were to be ascertained by actual measurement and paid for ata certain fixed scale of c...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. ADELAIDE GRAIN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 September 1880

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. ADELAIDE GRAIN MARKET. I The South Australian Advertiser, of September 17th, says : The past fortnight has been a very uneventful one in the grain trade, and prices have receded fully 2d. a bushel since last we wrote. I This has been brought about by the very unsatis- factory news received from Europe from day to day, totalling up to a drop of several shillings a quarter in the course of the fortnight. Shippers have seemed unwilling to continue shipments in the face of a positive loss staring them in the face ; and it has been difficult to find buyers at current rates except to fulfil freight engagements made some time ago. For this purpose several small lots have been procured at from 4s. IM to 4s. 2d., Port Adelaide, and 4B. Id. outportsî whilst the value of farmers' lots has ranged from 4s. at Port Adelaide to 3s. 9d. at outports. Country flour is still very slow of sale at £S Its. 6d. to £9. Since last we wrote we have been favored with splendid and cont...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX PERTH, TUESDAY, SEPT.28,1880. THE IRISH DISTUKBANCE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 September 1880

THE WEST ASSTfiAMAN. ViGiiANS ET AUDAX PEBTM, TUESDAY, SEPT72%mO THE IEISH DISTUKBANCE BILL. A PEESS telegram received not long ago indicated the existence of a somewhat for- midable crisis in Imperial political affairs, consequent upon the rejection by the House of Lords of the Irish Disturbance Bill. The importance of this crisis, however, if crisis it can justly be called, would appear, judging from the full particulars which have since been received, to have been somewhat exaggerated. But the situation at Home, when the mail was despatched, cannot but be regarded as having been a significantly unpleasant one, and further tidings, more especially in regard to Irish affairs, will be anxiously awaited. The telegram to which we have referred was calculated to produce the impression that the House of Lords had acted injudiciously, and that its action was generally condem- ned. We now are led to infer that a considerable majority in a distinctly Liberal House of Commons, either openly...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) FREMANTLE, September 27. Mr. Forsyth, our harbor master, who has on several occasions produced very creditable paintings is, I understand, now preparing one for the Melbourne Exhibition. It is to repre- sent the "harbour lugger," but it will not appear as an exhibit for special competition. He has also made a banner to be placed upon a trophy of jarrah and kari timber, for the Mel- bourne Exhibition. The banner is 36 feet by 18 feet : the centre is white, the border red. The inscription is "West Australia," with a wreath encircling a black swan, done in Jud son's dyes; the length of the letters is three   feet. The height of the timber trophy on which the banner will be placed is to be 100 feet. The line of the Eastern Railway, crossing the Perth road on the Fremantle side of Davey's ' Half-way House * is at an acute angle, and an endeavour it appears has been made to make it at" right angles.
