THE LAST SAD RITE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

THE LAST SAD RITE. On Friday afternoon last the funeral of Mr.   G. F. Stone, formerly Attorney General of the Colony took place. Numerous friends and re- lations from Fremantle and the adjacent dis- tricts met together, in addition to all the most prominent citizens of Perth to pay the last earthly token of respect, to one, who had gone to that undiscovered country, from whose   bourne no traveller returns." The pro- cession which numbered between two and three hundred took the following order :-The Chief Mourners ; Order of Fremasons ; Order of Oddfellows ; general public. The Governor's carriage followed in the rear. " Slow the sable coach moved on" to the Church of England Cemetery, where the sublimely solemn burial services were gone through by the Very Rev. the Dean, and the Rev. J. L. Gardiner, and the lifeless clay was placed "in that cold couch which age and sorrow render sweet to man. " Shakespeare, has put into the mouth of one of his characters ...

TRIAL BY JURY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

I TRIAL BY JURY. To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-The opinion has almost universally gained ground of late, that the Legislative Coun- cil of Western Australia is a sham and a farce, but it certainly is not more of a farce than is the working of our present system of Trial by Jury. At each successive Court of Quarter Sessions held, it is becoming more and more ap- parent that culprits who are most unmistake ably guilty of the crimes imputed to them are constantly being acquitted by the jurors em- panelled to decide between the Crown and them. Indeed, this circumstance has latterly become of so frequent occurrence-especially when a prac- titioner of the law is present on the behalf of the defence-that in two out of every three cases tried, a verdict of " .Not Guilty" may be safely .predicted. This Sir, seems to me a serious state of affairs, and the only remedy that presents itself to my mind is the institution of au educational, in ad- dition to, a property qualification. That...

Sir,-I telt half inclined not to add another word to the two letters, you have been good enough to publish, on the subject of duty on flour. The question however is too important and can hardly be too much discussed there- fore, until the time for a final decision arrives. I will, in as short a manuer, as I can, refer to 3 letters that have just made their appearance in the latest papers. 1st.-"A Consumer" in Herald of 7th Aug- ust. His argument mainly rests upon a visit, i he appears to have made to the Northern dis- tricts at the time " red rust" caused so much distress amongst the farmeis there. Can Legislation prevent such occurrences? It ü could, it should also provide against accidents by fire, earthquakes etc. etc,. It ceitainly was a fearful time for the hard working farmer, but no duty on flour could prevent a similar calamity. The statement of 40s. or 50s. per day and their food having been the wages of labouri...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

Wie Heston lustraltan ©imcs. 80LUM NON MUTAT GENUS. We remember hearing a satirical Crown prosecutor in a murder case, remark that in our enlightened age, every ordinary wealthy individual who committed a crime was sure to be brought in either as a mono- maniac, or a lunatic pro. tem. by the tender hearted medical faculty. But we are now about to take a wider range ; our clipped wings have grown, and we ask " are criminals automata" ? And the savants of the day are anxiously seeking to discover, whether the ferocious wretches whose atrocities send a thrill through our veins, are not the victims of a hullucination or a mesmeric power that renders them powerless to resist their bloodthirsty impulses. And it is some- what enlightening to peruse the remark- able arguments brought to bear on the subject. We cannot on this point do better than quote the New York Herald, which says, "If a man who commits a murder does it as a fine art-that is quietly thrusts his poinard into the breast of ...

Country News. CHAMPION BAY. LOST STOLEN OR STRAYED [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

CíTtttttfg fUfoS. [ CHAMPION BAY. Might be appropriately applied to "our own." What has become of him ? Where is he-the Gentleman who is in the habit of reporting passing, and occasionally drawing upon his imagination with respect to coming, events? Some of your readers have become so accus- tomed to depend upon " our own" for an account of the sayings and doings of the Victoria District that they consider themselves badly treated at his long and continued silence, because there is now no excuse. We cannot say. There's nothing " striking" in this quiet place, Except tile "smacks" upon the ocean's face; indeed for some time past the place has been \ teeming with events and some of them have been very striking. I will enumerate a few which ought to have a place in the Times, just as a reminder to " our own" that Nelson's mott« stands good in "our owns" case.

Local and General. "THAT'S WHERE THEY MAKE THE MISTAKE." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

ocal an î> êzixtxnl. "That's where they make the Mistake.' - In an article in our last issue on rivalry and opposition, in referring to professional etiquette, we laid down the principle that in tliu field of journalism, the abuse of contemporaries wasim politic, if not disreputable. We took up the subject and argued upon it, in a mere abstract form, but rumour says that a contemporary has taken " the flattering unction" to them- selves ; that they have taken down their scalp- ing knife and tomahawk, and are on our trail in all the horror of a double coat dí war-paint. We cannot see where we have thrown down the gauntlet, or challenged attack. Indeed our whole object was to uphold neutrality, if not to smoke the pipe of friendship and of peace ; and we think any one who reads our previous re- marks will arrive at the same conclusion. It is hardly reasonable therefore that while laying down such a principle, we should in the very act, stultify ourselves by making a " ferocious att...

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 24 August 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. "You're late to-night," observed the Owl, as his friend fluttered to the old branch among the waving trees. "Yea," whispered the Magpie nervously, " I've been listening as I came along, and be- sides I've had a chat here and there with a friend." "Words, idle words," droned the Owl in poetical cadence that would have done credit to a " ranter" of the first water. " Idle, but not over pleasant," cried Maggie, it's put me in a regular fluster." " To be or not to be" interjected the Owl, " what's the latest bulletin from the seat of war?" "Why, they say, there's a whole regiment of ' boohoos' out after us, with their big brothers and their cousins-" and Maggie shivered like the leaves around her. " Bah," croaked the Owl, forgetting his poe- tical tendencies in his contempt, " when luna- tics and dogs go howling at the moon, she takes no notice ; she just goes on as before." " True" mused the fearful one, "but I am not so thick-skinned, and sagacious as you.-But,...

They combine with the display of tasteful research att excep- tional advantage for ladies, which is that of enabling them to dress with elegance and grace accordmg to their means m every condition of line. Originality, style, tact are the essentials. A checked mohair is as pretty a trimming for plain mohair as all the other costly embroider- ies on net and faille. A plain straw Chloe'-hat with a trail of cherries is as becoming as the cream damask. Duchess bonnet, a long tablier -tunique of plain cashmere is, properly looped or rather draped, as suggestive the very minutely spangled Jewess overdresser. _ The word spangled, has been used in allusion to the new elaborate mother-of-pearl flakes sewed all over ladies toilettes. Straw and pearl spangles on black net are perfectly con- tagious. It is wonderful how such an amount of needl...

Sir,-In your Journal of the 14th May last a Bbort letter appears with this heading, pur- porting to be written from York, and com- plaining that the Roman Catholics and dis- senters had to cnrry their dead out of town while the Church of England folks enjoyed the privilege of burying their friends within its bound lies. The letter in question was evidently written by a Roman Catholic or a Wesleyan, as it was merely a u drive" at the Church of England, and alluded to no sanitary improve- ments. It would have been better if the writer of that letter had called attention to \ the fact that the public well, from which so many get their water, is in a direct descent from the Roman Catholic grave yard, and some 40 feet below and at no great distance, from that spot where hundreds of human bodies are buried ! and it is on that side of the river that sickness has prevailed, and mortality follow...

I\TEïï?OLO\IAL NEWS. We subjoin a summary of Intercolonial news abridged from our files received by the mail, which arrived at Fremantle on Sunday morn- ing last per s.S. Georgette. VICTORIA. The past month has been a very lively one in the political world. The IVasurer of the Kerffid Administration has delivered his budget ; his financial propositions have been first approved of, then disapproved of ; the late GoViunnipnt has resi^n^dj and another has been formed. In our last summary wo said, «' that whilst on every division the Ministry has secured a large majority, there are plenty of sinns to show that only a favourable oppor- tunity is wanted to induce a determined attack upon the present occupants ot the Treasury benches." The opportunity arrived, the attack was made, and the result has already been b'iefly stated. This outcome of the situation has been uni- versally regretted, and the free-trade members who played into the hands of their political ad- versaries by voting agai...

NORTHAM. (From our own correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

NORTHAM. (From our oivn correspondent.) In your issue of Tuesday the 17th inst., are some remarks from youi Newcastle correspon- dent relative to Northam, and perhaps he will be good enough to excuse me, if 1 supplement them a little. And first, as regards the weather. During the first part of last week, viz., on Monday Tuesday, and Wednesday, the weather was overcast, with occasional showers on each day, and the wind W. N. W. On Thursday the wind shifted round to the eastward, where it still remains, the weather being exceedingly bright and fine, and the sun very warm, but the wind bitterly cold in the shades. Cold and heavy dews have also fallen during night time, with an occasional slight frost, but, on Monday night, the frost was so severe, that the ice on the water tubs was, in the morning, of the thickness of half a crown. This has, of course, affected the potato crop, but, ia all other res. pects, vegetation is progressing satisfactorily and " as well as can be expected," con...

NEWCASTLE. From our own Correspordent [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

NEWCASTLE. From our own Correspordeni On Saturday last, the 21st instant, an inquest was held at the Wicklow Hills, near Newcastle, after view of the body, on William McDonough, a small farmer in the neighbourhood, who died very suddenly the previous evening. It trans-   pired that on Friday last a few friends and neighbours met together in the Wicklow Hills School House to have a quiet and temperate evening ; in short, one of those rational, social gatherings which do much good in every way. Shortly after tea, deceased was seized with a fainting fit, and taken out by some of the party into the open air, but life was almost imme- diately extinct. At the inquest a verdict of "Died by the visitation of God" was returned by the jury. McDonough was a temperate man, of industrious habits, and much respected in his own neighbourhood. He leaves a widow and four children. A preliminary meeting was held in Newcastle last week to talk over the line of railway which it is intended...
