FOOD AND HAPPINESS. (National Food and Fuel Reformer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875

FOOD AND HAPPINESS. (National Food and Fuel Reformer.) It's a dull world we are making of it, and verily the once merry English people are being turned into a solemn, sight- seeing, dyspeptic and grumbling nation, saddled with the nightmare of " mouey making." Dame Fortune has played us an ugly trick, she bus for our perdition given us commercial prosperity, and we are pretty well riding our steed to death. Selling, selling, selling, is the constant cry of the nation. We should sell the land we live on if it brought a bag full of money big enough to console us for being lett high and dry on some solitary rock. These mad commercial tendencies have warped the nation's judgment, and much that was grand and good in it has given way to superficial finery, which we can but characterize as modernized vul- garity. Every lady wants to be smart in dress, smart in appearance, stylish in living, disdaining the dear old home cares of seeing bow the bread and butter tasted, and how the ale was br...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875

(íürr*s#0ttíuiif-e. To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sie,-1 do not often leave York to visit out- lying districts, but had resolved on the present occasion to proceed overland to Champion Bay. Nothing occurred to break the monotony of a long ride, except a few occasional showers. I safely arrived at Greenough Flats and made my way to the port of Champion Bay. I camiot speak in praise of the road from the Flats to the Bay, but doubtless ere long it -will be much im- proved, as I note quantities of stone lying about for the purpose of road making. However, I ultimately reached Champion Bay or Geraldton, and it appears that I arrived at a very opportune time, if only to see some of Henry Gray's eccen- tricities by the following being displayed along the whole length of his shop front, in large red letter-"Sir A. P. Burt has decided that our red hearing custom house fine is illegal-convic- tion quashed with costs," also in each window separate placards " Red Herrings" in large red lett...

(From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875

(From a correspondent) Fremantle like most small places in out-of the-way parts of the world, is seldom overflow- ing with news, takes very little to amuse it and daily absorbs immense quantities of scandal, whenever that material is to be had for love or money, as it often is. We are very short of all them just now ; news, amusements, and if I may call it so the necessary evil — scandal; it may be noticed however, even it not worthy of reflection that a supply of the latter can be brought to bear upon any part of our town is an inevitably short time. Much faster than our fire brigade could supply their "soothing syrup" to an in-   flamed building. However remarks can be made, and these are mine : In church affairs matters are not going right with us ; it is hard to say who ought to bear the blame (under the rose, I believe the parish- ioners are half at fault,) ; we certainly have our regular services, but they have slided lately into a sort of sloppy unsteadiness that...

NORTHAM. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 August 1875

NORTHAM. (From our own Correspondent.) Several very important meetings, partaking both of a public and private character, have been held here lately and, as no account   regarding them has, as yet, appeared in the W. A. Times, a brief report of them will, perhaps, be acceptable. The first, which took place on the 7th ult., was a special general meeting of the members of the Northam Farmers' Club, and a full atten- dance of the members, as well as of the public in general, was particularly invited, as the question of an import duty on flour was to be brought before the meeting, and was also to form the principal subject for consideration   and, following the example which has pre- viously been set by the inhabitants and settlers of Greenough and Newcastle, the general and special invitation was well responded to. The meeting was, in fact, not only a numerous but also, as far as the district was concerned, a highly influential one and, among those pre- &a...

YORK. (From a correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

YORK. (From a correspondent.) Friday tjie 6th August will he a day long remembered, not only as the first Centenary of .Daniel O'Connell, but also as a day that forms an epoch in the history of York. Never before was there an undertaking so successful, so decorous^ ' or so well attended, as was the Centenary in York. It would seem as if an electric spark of enthusiasm had shot forth from the bosom of Ireland, to warm the patriotic spirit of York, judging from the numbers that congregated upon the occasion. From an early hour on Friday evening groups of persons might be seen wending their way towards the Roman Catholic schoolroom, to be present in honour of Daniel O'Connell, the great Liberator, and to do justice to the spread prepared for the occasion. It was the greatest pity that the room did not afford ample accomodation, for the number congregated upon that occasion ; for although of considerable size it was almost crowded to suffocation. Great praise is due to the ladies for th...

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. " We meet again," said the 0»vl, (for he was of a poetical temperament), as his old friend the Magpie flew up, and esconced himself be- side him. " Yes," said the Magpie, "I see you still stick to the old spot, among the branches, and listen as they walk and talk under the trees. Ah ! Mr. Owl you look very sleepy and obtuse, but I fancy you hear more than many a wake- ful one." . '. Perhaps so, friend, but this placehas acharm forme; I like to sit above those "sloughs of despond" and think. And then (he added mysteriously) beyond is '* Spencer's gulf-" "Ah ! said the Magpie," that's what the new councillor was talking about the other day, and didn't he say something about a certain elec- tioneering medical officer ?" " So, so," interjected t he Owl, " and I have heard some mysterious whispers, about an ac- tion for damages agaiust the civic dignitary but you know a medical man, ought not to in- fringe our sanitary laws, Hut the best of it all is that the othe...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

txxts$onhtntt. To the Editor of the W.A. Times. A, Sir,-The Editor ot the Herald in his issue of the 7th inst., very justly remarks upon the reception of emigrants on their arrival here. It reminds me of an account I read of the recep- tion of a batch oi Irish emigrants in Queens- land. As soon as they landed, amongst the crowd collected on the shore to receive them, the first and foremost man was the Priest, they, as a matter of course, being Irish, were all, or nearly so, Roman Catholics. This Priest was seen to shake hands heartily with the adults, and to pat the little children on the shoulder with a kindly word of welcome to the land in which they were to grow up to manhood and womanhood. And moreover, this Priest was seen to lead the way, like the affectionate father of a large family, to the Home where the emigrants were temporarily to lodge, till told off to their respective des- tinations. If our Clergy, I mean the Clergy of the Church of England, would act in such a patern...

Country News. FREMANTLE. (From our own correspondent.) TOPICS OF THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

Country Seins. FREMANTLE. (From our own correspondent.) TOPICS OF THE POET. Numerous have been the enquiries in reference ' to the progress of the civil engineer who was, it is understood, in compliment to a deputation, appointed by His Excellency the Governor to survey and test that portion of the North beach, said to be the. most suitable spot from which to run out a breakwater. I do not pretend to a knowledge of the precise time required to demonstrate to' the satisfaction of a scientific mind the practicability of doing what Mr. Brown has undertaken to do ; but as the pro- jector himself has been appointed to test the ground upon which he professes to carry out his scheme, and the gentlemen who formed the deputation to His Excellency and urged so suc- cessfully that something might be done for the security of our anchorage, consider themselves, in a measure, responsible to the Fremantle public, whose interests they represented, I think Mr. Brown should in common courtesy inform ...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 17, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

®Jje ¡iUstcnt f ttstnlran 8iwcs. SOUJM NON MUTAT GENUS. The labor question, is a very old sore, that has been talked about and written upon, from generation to generation, but is not yet by any means healed up. Capital, and labour, have always waged a steady war concerning their rights, and, as beth believe, their wrongs ; each generally falling into the same foolish mistake, a want of moderation. Each, too anxious for their own cause, forgot that the only íemedy lay in meeting one another half-way. Hence, up to the present time, we have everywhere, strikes and disagreements between masters and men, with all the accompanying dis- astrous results. Year after year the great mistakes that have been made were obvious on either side, but, year after year the same track has been pertin- aciously trodden. England, with its vast capital and labour has suffered more from these throes, than almost any other country. The employers and the em- ployees have fought some stern battles with each ot...

NEWCASTLE. (From our own correspondent.) On Saturday evening the 7th instant, the annual meeting of the Newcastle Mechanics' Institute was held in the hail. There was a good attendance. The principal busiuess be* fore the meeting was the election of officers for the ensuing year, and fixing the annual tea meeting and concert. Mr. ditton was elected president, with Messrs.

SENSATIONALISM. (Queen). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 17 August 1875

SENSATIONALISM. ( Queen). A series of sermons on "the Church   and the "World" would obviously be   incomplete without a discours« on " Sen- sationalism ;" and on " Sensationalism" accordingly the Bishop of Derry preached on Sunday last at St. James Church, Piccadilly. What exactly " Sensational- ism" is his lordship did not attempt to define, but he gave an illustration . of it in the habit oi dyeing the hair yellow and wearing high-heeled boots, and the practice indulged in by travellers at Borne of lighting up the Coliseum by lime-light. A woman's hair, he very properly observed, ought to be left its natural colour, and the heels of her boots ought to be of moderate structure. So, too, the Coliseum was intended, no doubt, to be seen by daylight; and to light it up out of the darkness and obscurity of the Italian night with the fierce rays of the lime-light is, obviously, to seek a new and somewhat sensational effect. It would appear to follow from this t...
