Country News. FREMANTLE. PORT TOPICS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

Cfltttttrg lUfos. FREMANTLE. Port Topics. (From our own Correspondent.) The inutility of of our new jetty drives all boats discharging cargo to the old one. At- tached however to the n ew structure there is a convenience which the old one lacks, though its continual use entitles it to a similar accom- modation. The erection of the new jetty caused an increase in the charge for trucking of two hundred per cent. At present there is not a crane or lifting apparatus ot any description upon it ; this of course necessitates the use ot the old jetty wheie cranes are provided Ii a roofed platform were added or the old one coveied similar to that attached to the new structure, gooda that are now exposed to the wet, and often damaged thereby, could be kept from the influence of the weather. Formerly the mere! ant paid 6d. per ton for wharfage purposes, and employed their own truckers, who undertook to look alter their interest ; now the Government has charge of the jetty, and authorizes Is. 6...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,-A long time ago I went on board the steamer Georgette, and had great difficulty in doing so, as I had to walk from the jetty to the vessel on a single plank 12 x 3, rather awkward for an old man. On Monday last, my business again took me on board, when instead of a proper " Gangway" for people to goto and fro, I had to clamber down one of the slender piles and make a spring on to twoplaiiks 12 x 3,-whether they call this an improvement on the single plank I cannot say ; but it is certainly most inconvenient if not dangerous. Whilst on board I saw one of the officers make a false step and fall off the said planks on to the deck ; fortunately, he fell the right side of the bul- warks. I would suggest the owners laying out a pound wisely, in the construction of a . ' Gang- way" for the comfort of all parties concerned, including Your humble servant, INSURANCE. Fremantle, 23rd August, 1875.

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

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) At last the Guildford Lodge of Odd Fellows, have made a move in the right direction. I am . - informed they have purchased a piece of ground for the purpose of building a hall some time or . other ; their numbers are increasing steadily, '. asd the meetings are well attended. Jt)ur Municipal'Council I see are trying to" beautify the square by planting trees round it ; no doubt they will look very nice, and add greatly to the beauty of the town, but I am of the opinion if the money which has been ex- pended in buying and planting the trees was laid out on the roads, which are in a wretched state, the town would look far better. A Musical Entertainment was held in the Mechanic's Hall on Saturday night, conducted by Mrs. Gull ; the hall was crowded, which must have been very pleasing to the performers. The proceeds are to go to the fund for the purchase of a piano for the hall. These enter- j tainments are to be held every Saturday night | until...

Correspondence. A SAD CASE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

atx esyonbctitt. A SAD CASE. To the Eraron of the W. A. Times. Sir>_it is with considerable compunction that I take up my pen to address, what you way per haps deem a too personal letter, but the exi- gency of the case you will admit after reading this epistle, demands it. I venture, Sir, to ad- dress you upon a no less important subject than the conduct of your paper, and Sir, it is with sincere regret that I must say I in no way ap- prove it. Sir, when I look at the sheet which you now send me, and compare it with its former state, I feel more grieved than anything else. What have you done ? Where, oh, where, are those expansive scientific articles, those minute investigations into the mysterious and unknown, that were such a treat to minds of my culturel Where is the grand old patrician style and form of your paper gone ? Sir, what have you done ? You have had the egregious folly to make your journal a vehicle for common place news, for vulgar accidents and meetings ; you h&am...

To the Editob of the W.A. Times. Sir,-The Editor of the Herald evidently, opens or closes his paper as suits his purpose. I Having refused insertion to the enclosed will you please publish and oblige, Yours truly, JAMES MAGUIRE. Perth, 23rd August, 1875. To the Editor of the Herald. Sir,-As you have given insertion to Mr. Clifton's letter in reply to mine, on the subject of the Bunbury Electoral Roll, you cannot in fairness refuse the space to ask what part ot my statement is " untrue" ? What I stated, I still adhere to ; it may be contradicted, but can- not be disproved, I was at the Court Houbo tor the purpose of inserting my son's, name on the roll, and about an hour afterwards I saw one of Mr. Steer's committee at the Welling- ton hotel, with a book under his arm, that looked to me very much like the book I had seen at the Court Honse. Whether it was the same book or not, is but known to the Com \ raittee. Further, when 1 was at the Court House, Mr. Clifton was not there, and th...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

Io ra I alii* ê sitora I* - Local Court :-At the Local Court yester- day five cases were set down for hearing. Of these two were settled out of Court, anti two set up no plea of defence. The remaining case that of McArdell v. Casely, was a claim for horse hire and cash advanced to the amount of i-1 15s. For the defence it was alleged that one D. A. Gray was liable he having authorised the hire. After a good deal of sonorous swearing judgment was given for plaintiff for £1 5s. Sd. and costs. Entertainment :-An astronomical exhibi- tion by means of a powerful Magic Lantern, accompanied by a lecture and music will be given on Wednesday evening next, Sept 1st., in the Congregational School room Perth. We understand that the proceeds are to be devoted to the erection of a class-room in connection with the School in question.

THE FUTURE BISHOPS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

THE FUTURE BISHOPS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,-As Bishop Hale is about to leave us, and as a successor to him will have to be ap- pointed by some authority, I am of opinion that the Western Australian Synod ought not depute the nomination of the future Bishop, to either the Archbishop of Canterbury, or the Bishop of Melbourne ; as either of these high ecclesiastics would be sure to send us some strange clergyman, whose only superiority might consist of his being a member of some aristocratic family in Europe. The little advancement left at our disposal should not be given to strangers, but should be bestowed on the highest clergyman amongst us; and the vacancy occurring in the Arch- deaconry, or Deanery, should be bestowed upon that clergyman who is longest in-Western Aus- tralia. But if the Bishoprics of Western Aus- J tralia be always filled np by strangers, what ' chance of preferment is there for any clergyman in this colony ? The same logic will...

A WORD FOR THE RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

A WORD FOR THE RAILWAYS. The following article, abridged from the Hour, which we extract from a colonial contemporary, cannot fail to be interesting and encouraging to the ad- vocates of railway communication through our colony : "Mr. Bright has expressed the opinion that railways render more service and receive less gratitude than any other institution in the land, and we are inclined to agree with him. We are sometimes, indeed, at a loss to account for the asperity of the tone in which some writers criticise railway administration. A letter in a newspaper that frankly expressed appreciation of some new benefits conferred by a railway would be almost a novelty ; an acrimonious com- plaint from a correspondent whose sharp-nibbed pen has been dipped in ink of which the princi- pal ingredient is gall is common. Now, we think the time has come for a more just estimate of the operations and results of our railway system. The magnitude of the work done ; the comfort, security, and econom...

CHAMPION BAY. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

CHAMPION BAY. (Froni a Correspondent.) The weather here during the past week has been all that could be desired, beautiful warm days and very frequently, showery nights, the result being that the crops look splendid and »how.every prospect of a bountiful harvest. It has been reported that very little rain has fallen on the Irwin, and the country to the eastward, I grass being very scarce. Although we have had a great deal of rain we cannot agree with a remark that appeared in the Hera.d to the effect that '. more rain had fallen between the latitude of 28°, 32° than had been known for the last thirteen years." It is certain a few of the small brooks have been running, but not the rivers ; in fact we have have had considerably less rain this year than last, so we cannot compare the season of 1862 with the present one. It is a blessing we have to content ourselves with the orderings of an all wise Providence even with respect to the weather ; if we had to dopend upon its arrangement t...

THE LABOR QUESTION AND TIMBER COMPANIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

THE LABOR QUESTION AND TIMBER COMPANIES. To the Editor of the W. A. Timxs. Sir,-With reference to the deputation-com- prised of Messrs. Wanliss and Simpson,-sup- ported by Messrs. Pearce and Randell, the pro- fessed advocates of Coolie labor,-which recently waited upon the Governor, a report of which ap- peared in your issue of the 13th inst., I must, if you will allow me space for that purpose, clip some of Mr. Wanliss' remarks on that occasion of their apparently interested coloring, that they may come nearer the real state of affairs at Jar- rahdale-as they are known to those who reside in the vicinity of the works. In the report mentioned Mr. Wanliss is stated to have said that for the ten days following the last pay day, the company's mill never turned, owing to the men being on the spree. Now, it would have materially altered this desponding view of the case had he added that that parti- cular poy day was the only one for sixteen weeks ; and that the men's absence for six (not...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

§§£ ikstent australia» ®tmes. SOLUS! NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 27, 1875. Political life in the Eastern colonies has been rather exciting during the last month. Victoria has managed to throw out a fairly competent ministry, that might at least have done more good than harm, and in their place one of the most remarkable combinations has stepped in. If there seemed the remotest piobability of the present cabinet being anything but ephemeral, Victoria in their absurd^pro tectionist hands, would have little chance of anything but evil. But, if affairs have been more than usually exciting in Vic toria, thev have been none the less so in New South Wales. In the words of a local journal the political life might well be designated a scandal and disgrace. Series charges of corruption have been made in the House against a member of the Government, and a general resort to recrimination and abuse took place, in which some of the most prominent politi- cians joined. It would seem as if ther...

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 27 August 1875

ÏHE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. "No1 winged yet", said the Owl, as Maggie came floating along on the twilight zephyrs. "No" cried Maggie cheerily, "these folks make nore noise than they do harm." " Ki»it", replied her friend, " empty vessels sound tiost, is an old adage, and those who are constantly on the " boohoo" of what they can, and.wi'i do, generally end in doing nothing." " Ali'', said the Magpie, more seriously than was h.-r wont, " I fear there are too many about '¿ere who must really spend their life in listening to, and talking scandal." " Al all events, they talk enough about you and I, Maggie, and we are getting quite notori- ous, for'some how they hear all we say. It was only fue other night, as I was dosing on a cliimnfcy top, just above where a meeting was being ¿eld that I heard some unfortunate would be-fuifny specimen of cleverness, exclaim " Oh, I dare say Ave shall have all this in the Owl and MagjSe next week," to which learned remark, a venerable sage replied, "Oh, I ...
