VASSE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 20 August 1875

VASSE. (From our own Correspondent.) On Monday last a man, Thos. Gallagher, made an attempt to drown himself by jumping off the jetty, but was saved by the courage of Mr. R. Lockhart, who, although suffering from illness himself, immediately leaped into the water and kepit the man above water, till other assistance carne. Capt. Bruce, of the "Speedy" loading at Lockeville, met with a very serious accident, coming into Busselton. The horse bolted, crushed his arm against a tree and broke it in two very dangerous places. Mr. L. A. Beurteaux is on a professional visit and supplies us with some beautiful teeth to eat our beef with. Flour, I am afraid, will soon reach a price, that must make teeth quite unnecessary.

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 20 August 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. " There's an eavesdropper about" said Maggie, as she settled herself again beside her moody friend. " There's a "boohoo" about, who, keep- ing up his schoolboy propensities, has taken to snarling, instead of pouting." " Take no notice," replied he with the eyes, "take no notice, I expected, when we were haviug our little quiet impartial chats here, that some, long-tongued, half witted, spiteful nonentity would sneak about, and listen, and then run to and fro, gabbling, with all the energy of a new fledged gosling." "Of course," interrupted Maggie, but isn't it strange, that some people can write and talk nothing but slander?-there's "Boohoo," awfully anxious to know who went to sleep in the billiard room, the other night," "He's fearfully inquisitive'' said the Owl, " but perhaps poor fellow he's seen the time, when he'd have been glad to have had a billiard room to dose in, out of the cold ; even at some- body else's expense." "Ha, Ha," shrieked the Magpie "...

THE WOOL SALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 20 August 1875

THE WOOL SALES. The Wool Sales terminated on June 17, when Messrs. Jacomb, Son, and Co. reported .-After a duration of six weeks and three days the second series of public sales of colonial wools for this year has terminated this evening ; during this period 271,290 bales have been brought to the hammer, but a very small proportion having been withdrawn ; it is estimated that about one half of this has been taken for foreign account ; ?» e never before remember so large an attend- ance of continental buyers as mustered here during a great part of these sales. The whole available quantity catalogued must have been placed, so that with books pretty clear of old stock now, and anything like a fair average con- sumption between this and the 17th of August, ?we ought to have by that date a market fully prepared to deal with the (say) 260,000 bales which will then be brought to sale, and which, with the exception of a further quantity of Capes, will form almost the whole supply we shall h...

CHURCH OF ENGLAND ENDOWMENT AND SUSTENTATION FUND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 20 August 1875

CHURCH OF ENGLAND ENDOW7MENT AND SUSTENTATION FUND. To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,-The Church of England in this Colony is not stirring herself too soon, for the work to which she is now setting herself will be a long and uphill work If it is to succeed, those who conduct the enterprise must lay in a stock of indomitable patience and good temper, for they will meet with many disappointments, and must learn how to carry themselves pleasantly under a great deal of indifference, if not con- tempt. Open, unmasked opposition will never be offered. Good taste would restrain it ; public opinion would put it down. If this movement were the attempt of a religious com- munity to fasten a fresh claim upon public funds for its support, open and active opposi- tion would be speedily offered, and the opposi- tion would command respect ; but where a Church determines throngh a representative body to raise within her own communion a voluntary fund toward the sustenance of her ministry, wheth...

Correspondence, TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 20 August 1875

eoTvesyonbtutt, To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,-There is one who speaks with authority who says " Woe unto you when all men shall speak well of you." The most steadfast dili- gent discharge of duty will save no one from, the tongue or pen of the detractor. There are some people so constituted that they must be speak- ing evil of some one or another. This remark is drawn from me by the perusal of a letter in the columns of your issue of this day as the subjects of emmigrants and their reception in the colony by the Church of England Clergy. The letter is signed " a Churchman;" The writer's cen- sorious spirit must have been very much in the ascendant, when he wrote that epistle. He was determined apparently, to discover some peg upon which to hang a censure upon the clergy. But the peg he found is a very poor one. For it now happens, and there is plenty of evidence to hear out my assertion, that the clergy have been particularly careful and painstaking in the matter of the rec...

®d* iteíten ittstralian fîmes. SOLÜM NON MOTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 20,1875. The news by the English mailis not prolific in many startling measures or events. But the want of sensationalism is to some extent supplied by variety. Tn politics the various bills before the House carne on for consideration, prominent among which was the long vexed question of the Permissive Liquor Law. The bill was thrown out on its second reading by 371 to 86 votes. Dr. Kenealy has as a mat- ter of course had something to say about his Tichborne mania, and has received the customary snubbing, which however has not the slightest cooling effect on his eruptive powers. Mr. Whalley, his sole friend in madness, has of course backed him up and the usual ridiculous farces have been acted. The Employers and Workmen's Bill has also been on the boards, and a strong effort is being made to reconcile these two sections, by bestow- ing on each a fair right and privilege. Hospital Sunday, was held on June 13th, and ...

OBITUARY. The public will learn with very general and sincere regret, the death of one of our oldest and most estimable colonists, George Freder- ick Stone, Esq., who died at his residence, Perth, on Wednesday evening, the 18th inst., after a short illness, at a mature age. He ar- rived in the colony among the earliest settlers, when only about 17 years old, and soon showed himself a valuable assistant to our first Com- missioner of the Civil Court, W. H. Mackie, Esq., and to his own brother Alfred Hawes Stone, Esq., the first Registrar and Clerk of the Peace, in laying the foundations of a legal tribunal in the midst of the confusion and chaos of a new settlement. He was at any early period appointed Sheriff of the colony; and after serving in that office for some years with honour and credit, he resolved to devote himself to the study of the law ; in which resolution he was greatly encouraged by his friend Mr. Mackie, who always enter- tained a high opinion of his natural talent. ...

The temperance cause is steadily advancing in this district, in proof of which it is said one of the Hotels is doing very little ' business' and the landlord of the other has no intention of applying for a renewal of license.
