OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENBBAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 September 1880

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. WE learn from a telegram in the Australa- sian that the ship Daylight arrived at London the 8th inst. WE received the following memo, last night from the Postmaster General : " The next Euro- pean matts will not be despatched till Tuesday, October 5th, (or one day later) owing to the s.S.. Assam's departure from Melbourne being delayed till October 2nd." A LETTES signed " Scrutator," which ap- peared in print on Saturday last, is calculated in one respect entirely to mislead the public From certain words at the commencement ofthat letter, the public would be led to infer that the arbitra- tor's court and the Supreme Court are one and the same, and that of the proceedings before the arbi- trators the officers of the Supreme Court have cog- nizance. This is not the case. The building which is used as the Supreme Court house, being seldom required for Supreme Court purposes, was placed at the arbitrators' disposal, and they were per- mitted to hold ...

GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

GENEBAL PRINCIPLES OF BREEDING. The chief purpose for which domestic animals are bred is the conversion of vegetable food into animal products, such as milk, meat, wool, etc., which are in reality nothing else but more desirable forms, and we may consider a sheep farm, in the words of a celebrated French sheep breeder, as ' an establishment for the changing- of vegetable farm produce or pasture, by the agency of sheep, into money.' And it is evident that those animals answer the purposes of the breeder best that pro- duce the greatest returns for comparatively small quantities of food consumed, and for comparatively small amounts of outlay that have been invested in them. In order to carry on sheep-breeding and wool growing with suceess, we should be guided by nothing but strictly practical principles. We must carefully avoid therefore any arbitrary notions that may be dictated by fashion or fancy. We rear wool-growing sheep for different purposes than racehorses, pigeons, or canari...

M.L.CS AND FEEE BAILWAY PASSES. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-Your Perth contemporary has made a great fuss about a resolution moved and carried at the recent sitting of our Legislative Council in reference to members travelling " free" on our railways. It really appears that the honourable member who moved the proposition-if the state- ment of the Inquirer's port correspondent is to be taken as a fact-endeavoured to seriously increase the financial difficulties of the colony. Mr. Mor- rison, of Guildford, I think, was the first to object publicly in the columns of the press to members of the Legislative Council having conceded to them the privilege of free passes,-a concession conferred upon all railway clerks in England when travel- ling upon the business of the company. Our rail- ways must be considered as national affairs, seeing they are constructed at the people's expense. Therefore, those who represent the people, and ad- vocate their requirements, are really tra...

FARM AND STATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

IARM Ml STATÏ8N. PREVIOUS to the Session we had commenced the publication, under this heading, of a series of lectures on sheep breeding which have been lately delivered in Queensland, and have at- tracted much attention. We were obliged to discontinue the publication of these lectures almost as soon as we began, owing to the pres- sure on our space caused by the reports of Parliamentary proceedings/. r We have been requested now to continue the series, which it is thought will prove of interest and use to our country readers.

WRECK OF THE S.S. SORATA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

WRECK OF THE S.S. SORATA. As already briefly announced in our tele- graphic news, a serious disaster occurred to the steamship Sorata, of the Orient Line, when on the way from Adelaide to Melbourne on the 3rd inst. The mail which arrived at Perth on Saturday brought full particulars of the unfortu- nate disaster. It appears the Sorata left Lon- don on the 21st July last, and had a most suc- cessful voyage to Adelaide. Among her pas- sengers were the Duke of Manchester and Sir H. B. ' Sandford, the British Commissioner to the Melbourne International Exhibition. Ade- laide waa reached on the morning of the 3rd inst., and having landed the passengers and portion of the cargo intended for that port, the Sorata left for Melbourne at 5 o'clock the same evening. The sea was smooth, the weather fine, and there was every prospect of an enjoy- able voyage. The steamer passed Cape Jervis at 28 minutes to 9 p.m. Going through Black stairs Passage there was a haze upon the land. Captain Fowler a...

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBURY, Sept. 25. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

EOTINTfiY JLETTEIS. (From our own correspondents.) BÇTNBUBy, Sept. 25. Trade still continues dull in the extreme and business almost at a stand-still, but the genial sunshine we have lately enjoyed is regarded in some quarters as the harbinger of coming pros- perity. Considerable excitement was caused here a few days ago by the appearance of a magnifi- cent seal, measuring 10 feet 7 inches, which had been despatched on the hanks of the estuary, the fresh water appearing not to have agreed with it, for, when attacked, it was unable to defend itself, and thus fell a victim to that much-extolled element "pure water." This little episode was speedily followed by another incursion of marine visitors (who had likewise, lost their reckoning) in the shape of a ' school ' of whales, and who disported themselves for several days in the offing, three of them so far losing their latitude as to venture inside the bar, where they exhibited themselves during an entire Sunday, to the intense gratif...

THE AUDIT ACT MEMOBIAL. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAS SIB,-In your issue of the 24th instant there is a letter from " M.L.C." replying to an insulting insinuation of a writer in the Inquirer as to the want of morals on the part of the majority of the elected members of the Legislature in not sooner confiding to the Government and the nominee members the text of the memorial to the Secretary of State which was to be brought forward by me for adoption by the Legislative Council ; and your correspondent fur- nished an explanation of the facts connected with the case, which " Another M.L.C." in a letter in yesterday's Inquirer has endeavoured to impugn by what I can only describe as a verbal quibble. Except os a matter of veracity, the whole con- troversy on this question is to my mind unimport- ant, asno course of action on the part of the elected members or of the Government and their nominees would have altered the result arrived at. But considering that nothing was done...

SOUTH AFRICAN AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

SOUTH AFRICAN AFFAIRS. I THE AIMC Zealand Herald describes the diffi- culties Sir Hercules Robinson witt have to encounter in endeavouring to bring about a South African confederation:-South Africa cannot be said, in any sense of the word, to be a British community. Cape Colony proper has a population of 485,000 colored and 235,000 white persons, of whom not more than 85,000 claim their descent from the inhabitants of any portion of the United Kingdom. The remain« der are of Dutch origin, speak the language of Holland, and retain the faith, the habits, and and the traditions of the .Netherlands. The coloured people are chiefly Hottentots and Kaffirs the remaining portion of the population consists of Malays and so-called Africanders, the latter the offspring of black women and Dutch fathers. Very little communication takes place between the Kaffirs, Africanders and Malays, each holding the other in contempt." West Griqualand, which includes the diamond fields, has 15,000 white and 3...

MISCELLANEOUS GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

MISCELLANEOUS GOSSIP. Mrs. Gladstone is a clever woman, but spoils it all with her dowdy bonnets. Gambetta lately got so excited in a speech that he shattered his ruler on the desk. Lord Hartington is one of the richest noble- men in England, a bachelor, and 47. Mr. Blight's favourite author is Milton, a copy of which he always carries in his pocket. President Grevy has a salary of £24,000 a year, besides £12,000 for his household ex- penses. The Attorney General of Tasmania has pro- mised to bring in a bill changing the name of the capital from Hobart Town to the city of Hobart. Mr. William Cumming, of Victoria, has been offered (and refused) £1500 for the champion ram Duke, by Sir Hercules. How is that for high? Bismark is entitled to wear four hundred and sixty-six decorations. When he is dressed for ceremony he looks like a speckled hen. The 15 gem puzzle has at lost been put to a satisfactory use.

THE RAILWAY CEOSSING NEAR DAVEY'S. TO THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 1 October 1880

THE BAILWAY CEOSSING NEAB DAVEY'S. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAS SIB,-One of your own correspondents here, in to-day's issue writes : " The une of the " Eastern Bailway, crossing the Perth Road on " the Fremantle side of Davey*s ' Half-way House' " ia at an acute angle, and an endeavour it ap " pears bas been made to make it at right angles." This is not correct. No endeavour has been made to alter the course of the line, it is the road that has ¡ been made to deviate ; and considering that it is, I believe, intended that the posts erected shall carry gates that wiU close either on the line or the road, as occasion may require, their position could not be otherwise. Therefore, there is another opinion that this work is not " the most unsightly i and clumsy bit of engineering that could have been possibly devised." It is to be regretted that your correspondent I does not furnish your readers with matters of | value and interest, instead of finding fault, in ignorance, wi...

SIR,-Will you kindly allow me a little space in your next impression, in reference to your para- graph in to-day's issue commenting on my advertise- ment in yours of Friday ? You seem to indicate a regret that you did not alter the form of the advertisement. I framed it, according to my best judgment, in such a way as to let the public know that I could not hold the services publicly announ- ced, and why. I felt bound to do so, in order to keep faith with the public. How you should think of altering it I cannot understand. You say, "the Hall was let on the distinct understanding that it was not to be used for denominational purposes." The Council laid down no such conditions. You further say that " it came to the knowledge of the City Council that this understanding was to be departed from." How can an understanding never come to, be departed from ? But am I to under- stand, from the words just quoted, tha...
