AMUSEMENTS [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 5 December 1868

AMIUSEMSENTS have been limited to a few Ballad Con certs by bignorAbecco. This gentleman's t6ur, we should imagine will be anything but remunerative. His conicerts have been miserably attended-the receipts-in some instances bariely.covering the ex pences.-His harp playing is much and deservedly admired, but the prices are looked upon as too high, and the perfor mance too monotonous. The Signor being totally unassisted, the singing of song after song by the same person foI: an hour and a half becomes tiresome, and would weary the most patient and best tempered aidience in the woeld.

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 5 December 1868

OOMMEROIAL. We have but little to report. The red Srust has thrown a gloom over the colony and business is extremely dull. Economy and retrenchment will have to be strictly carried out to enable farmers and mer chants to pull through the current year. 'We shall not be at all surprised to see the list of insolvencies swelled consider ably-it can hardly be otherwise when we look at the system of credit that has been indulged in. We are glad to ob serve in one or two instances, notice has been given through advertisements, by storekeepers, that goods will be sold at a small profit, and that 'long credits will not be given. Commercially we feel sure it would be better to wipe out all past transactions and commence anew upon sound princi ples, than to continue the present rotten system which encourages extravagance, destroys all energy ,and leads ultimately to the ruin of debtor and creditor. The most friendly thing that the store Reepers could do to nine-tenths oft.he farmers in the col...

HorLLowAY's Pirts.-Low Temperature. - Hot, cold, or changeable weather is very apt to undermine the health, unless the stomach be kept up to its highest state of digestive effi ciency. Holloway's Pills improve the appetite, and so promote digestion-that a large supply of new materials is thrown into the blood after every meal, whereby fresh vigour and activity are bestowed on every organ, and ability to re sist disease is conferred upon the system. These Pills thoroughly purify the blood when it has been tainted by fogs, unwholesome vapours, im proper food, and other impurities, Noe medicine equals these Pills for removing bilious com plaints, suppressing sickness of the stomach, checking flatulency, and acting as mild, yet effective aperients, which are suitable for either sex and any age.

BUNBUIIY. (From our owon Correspondent.) The pleasant little town of Bunbury has been the scene of much cheerful festivity, af fording hi its results, substantial proofs of the success attending well-directed efforts in favor of social improvement.

RECOGNITION SERVICE. An. interesting service was held in Perth on Wednesday evening for the purpose of recogni zing the Rev. D. Meadowcroft as pastor of the church assembling for Divine Worship in Trinity Congregational Chapel. The service which commenced at past 7 p.m., was numerously attended not only by the members of the congregation, but by friends belonging to other denominations in the City.

I(witnessed their first practise, and soon found out (by the playing that it was not the first time several of them had had bats and balls in their hands. I have attended several practises since, and have always noticed a decided improvement on the previous practice.

FAWCETT'S LIGHT HORSE LATS PINJARRAH MOUNTED YOLUTBERS. If anyth;ng could tend to justify the rentiir' which your correspondent made on a former occasion respecting the above corps, viz., "it was gratifying to observe the harmony and good feeling which appeared to prevail," it was fully confirmed on Friday last, when the annual muster and inspection took place by Major Crampton at Captain Fawcett's, Pinjarramh Park. The day was kept as a holiday, the set tIers having come in from all parts of the MIur ray] district. . The corps assembled at Cornet Oakley's, 58 members being present, and marched from thence, about a mile to Captain Fawett's. Upon arriving at the review ground, they formed up front and rear rank, when the whole of the movements were gone through in the presence of Major Crampton, the inspecting officer-the sword and fencing practice were performed remarkably well, the most interes ting movement of the day was the storming of Captain Fawcett's large barn by the troops ...

iSoijE time since we gave place in our col iumns to a letter from our caustic corres pondent Beta, on " the Value of an Ad dress." We havenow togive our own opin ion of the worthlessness of one of the same kind of document, purporting to be the address of the inhabitants of Albany, to Governor THampton, on his departure from tle colony. We are not surprised at the fulsome ness of the Albany Address, considering the very unnecessary outlay upon a new Court House, which at the least will cost labor inclusive, £6,000, in a locality where the population is. scant, and little use either Municipally or Judicially for a building of that size and cost. Our iitention in bringing the subject .before our readers is not so much to com plain of the undue' preference given to a distant, and commercially -unimportant locality, as to call. the attention of our readers to the false principles of. the act fori.- which .Governor Hani ton takes credit--'that of locking up the surplus revei nuo of the c...
