SUMMARY OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

SUMMARY OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. -o The European and Colonial Mails arrived at Fremantle at half past ten o'clock last evening, owing to which circumstance we shall only be able to give a very meagre report of domestic and foreign news and intelligence. Her Majes ty opened Parliament in person, she was res pectfully received by the people on the passage the Speech was delivered by the Lord Chancel lor and was more full than has been customary in modern parliamentary history, and Mr. Dis raeli, evidently, weighed down by some retro gressive influence merely shadowed forth, but very. indistinctly the future platform of the Conservative Cabinet, to the address there was no opposition, and on the 11th ~February, the Right Hon. Gentleman, put before the House the basis of a proposed bill for the reform of the representation, by it there will be an in crease to ihe Electoral body to the extent of 400,000. The main feature in it is, the lowering of the household qualification to a £6 rating, w...

REVIEW. WESTERN AUSTRALIAN CHURCH OF ENGLAND MAGAZINE For APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

REVIEW. WESTERN A USTIRALIAN CHC7R CH OP ENGLANI) MA[GAZINE For APRIL. ." As often as one opens this unpreten tious but.useful little periodical, one is ' ed: to. regret that it contains sotrifling an ziamount oflocal churchlinforriation. The :Revd. Editor does, not appear to be : assisted to any extent by correspondents or contributors. VWould it not add greatly to the value of the Magazine, if interesting items of church news from the. country districts were given, and an article furnished occasionally on the many local questions that arise among us of a character that might be advantage ously discussed in its pages? In this' respect there is .a falling off from the earlier numbers, which contained inte resting letters on subjects, in which the colonists here, were chiefly concerned, and also some very excellent original poetry. The subject of supplying books of a moral character to farm laborers, shep herds, and others in the rural districts, who are so circumstanced as to be, in...

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. OUR ROADSIDE TRAVELLIN' [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. OUR ROADSIDE TRAVELLIN! I ain't as young as'I was, and I fndE I can't trimp it as I could used to. I've seen the time when I could do my 40 miles a day with 'swag.' pretty easy; but I'm getti.n' the worse for wear and tear, and if I've a long journey to make now, I'm obliged ito get a lift on a dray, which is very slow travellin'. I ain't been able to afford to ride, in the mail carts that run on our roads, the price is too high for the depth of my pocket; but havin' to go to Perth the other day to see the Judge-I was summoned as a witness in a criminal case-and bein' obliged to get on quick, and havin' my expenses paid, I hired a passage in the Royal Mail Cart. It was about 3 o'clock in the afternoon when I got into a conveyance that look'd very much to my mind like a knacker's cart, as I've seen in London, only a good deal heavier and harder in the springs, and not quite as clean. "Come jump up old splauger;" says coachee, as I stood with one foot on ...

ELoia *tteter tnxe, A meeting was held at the Emerald Isle Hotel, on Tuesday last, to take into consi deration a proposal made by His Excellency the governor with reference to the better regulation of the traffic on the South Jetty. The gentlemen presentwere Messers. R. King, Samson, Newman, Moore, C. A. Manning ; G. Shenton, J. G. C. Carr, and A. Shenton. We understand that the long talked of rails are to be laid down from the landing platform to the Commissariat Store, and from thence to the new wharf about to be constructed at Ferry point. The governor proposes. to have the rails laid, and suitable trucks pro vided at government expense, "when the whole will be placed at the disposal of the public. This is an improveitent upon the old system; and another instance of His Excel lency's willingness to assist, in every way, in facilitating the business of the colony.

Public Opinion. To the Editor of "The Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

ubhit Opinion. To the Editor of" The Herald." SIR,-Having read with deep regret the ac count of the " Lass of Geraldton," I beg to make a suggestion, which if acted upon by the Government, would confer a great boon to the Bunbury and Vasse people. I observe that a person fcan travel from Perth, to all parts of the colony, except to Bunbury and Vasse, per M1ail Cart-Why are the Shuthern Mail tenders "accepted," to be carried on horseback, instead of by Cart-I feel convinced that if an alteration were made in this matter, and that without, delay; the opportunity of travelling overland at a mode rate charge, would be gladly embraced by nearly all who may have occasion to visit Perth and Fremantle. I remain, Sir, Your obedient servant, OVERLAND ROUTE.

4*iUtIIaneo eu THE Economist has an article on the probable money market of 1867, from which we take the following remarks :-" We have thus examined two of three great features of the money market, capital and credit, and seen that they both tend to produce cheap money. It is the same with the third, bullion. There never was, we believe, so much bullion in the two Banks of France and England before ; and these two in conjunction contain the principal reserve treasure of commercial civi lization. As soon as industry declines, by a process which it is not easy to explain-at least the magnitude and suddenness of it are most surprising-these two banks are filled with bullion. It was so after 1847 and 1857, and now on a vaster scale it is so again. This accumu lation of bullion will for a long period aid the .state of credit and the growth of capital in producing a low rate of interest. The value of money.may, therefore, be expected to fall con- . siderably lower, and to continne there t...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 April 1867

THaT the project, long entertained, of. placing a Steamer to ply between our ports, will be carried into effect, sooner or later, cannot be doubted. A traffic of from 7,000 ·to 8,000 tons of cargo, at an average of twenty shillings per ton, and 1,400 to 1,500 passengers, at thirty shillings a head, to begin with, to say nothings of the increased trade that would be induced by a superior mode of transit, willnot long go a begging. There are several large steamers now laid up at Sydney, whose owners would be only too glaa to meet with such employment for one of them, could they for a single moment believe the above statistics to b.e true. But, the fact of there being a trade such as we declare to exist, with no one here possessing sufflicient enterprise to. work it, may well cause a stranger to regard our statements with distrust. Not that they will be satisfied with re turning a mere negative reply to any " invitation" that may be sent to them. No; men exert themselves a little in th...

JOTTINGrS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 7. The reader would like to know the nature of the contents of the letter that induced the Earl D'Hazzard to take a drive at midnight, instead of blowing his brains out? Well, he shall read it; it ran thus :- May Fair, Thursday Evening. My Dear Charles, I am distracted! An event has just occurred, which renders it imperatively necessary that I should have forty thou sand pounds ! Where to raise this sum, I know not; neither have you the power to help me. We are ruined.; yet, I implore you to come to me, if only to see your un happy mother for the last time ! I wait for you. Amelia D' Hazzard. The earl ordered his horses, as I told you in the last chapter, wondering what new, and pressing demand .had arisen that so disturbed his lady-mother. They were neither of them strangers to each other's necessities; and it was only re cently he had assisted her to pay a debt of honor. He soon reached her residence, however, and found her in a state of in desrii...

OUR BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 April 1867

OUTR BANK. THERE was a time when we had no Bank. at Fremantle. In those days people,. doing a large.h usiness, kept their money. at Perth: smaller traders, with less means, were put to the inconvenience of keeping theirs at home. It was felt to be a great hardship that the only Bank ing Corporation. in the colony, knowing the publio was incapable of helping itself, would not afford Fremantle the accommo dation of a Bank. Men sent their cash through the post, and grumbled at the (postage; or went themselves by Steamer, and were put to still greater ex pense. "If," said they, '. we had only a little opposition, our Bankers would not be quite so. independent as they are. They know we have. only 'Hobson's choice;' we must take whatever they please te give us, or go without." In acting as they did, prior to the ad vent of the new bank, the Directors of the Western Australian did no more than any of their customers would have done under similar circumstances. They were masters of the Situ...

SOUTH AURTRALIAN WINE IN LONDON.- The following extract of a letter: from an old South Australian, dated London Jan., 26th has been obligingly furnished to us for publication ; --" I sold off.by auction the other day about 20 hhds. of my wine, and if you see Mr. Trimmer or any wine-growers I. wish you would tell them all exactly how it came off. The wine was good, and contained 10 per cent. of good spirit. One lot sold at 50s. per hhd. of 46 gallons ; another: lot, all equal in quality, at prices ranging from £5 to £7 per hhd. of 46 gallons. I tasted many of the wines sold (it was a large sale), and found that my .wines fetched wlthin 5 to 10 per cent, of continental wines, of equal quality and of known brands, and I consider the sale satisfactory as a test of their real value in the British market, for 5 to 10 per cent, de preciation on account of prejudice is very little The attendance was good and the bidding rather brisk."

The principlea which they laid down for their guidance were that any scheme of ocean postal communication to be agreed upon by the Conference should, in providing for the general convenience, be so adapted to special interests as to secure the concurrence and support of all the associated colonies ; that any such scheme would be valuable to each of the colonies in proportion to, the number of points, of commercial intercourse which it should be made to include, consistently with expedition and regularity of conveyance between Great Britain and Australia ; that the facilities for the transmission of merchandise and for passenger traffic ought not ...

IJYDE PARK, WICKED. UP IN THE: ROW. l Story ,founded on iFacs. An ominous cloud had been gradually growing up from the western horizon, and at last had crept over the face of the sun and hidden him from sight. But the riders and walkers took no notice-as who ever does take notice when Pleasure is at the helm ?-of the coming shower, but laughed and chatted as though it were the first day they had come into the world and were to last for ever. A brave sight Rotten Row was that morning, a sight such as is not to be matched in any other corner of the world. The ride was filled with a dense crowd. The lovely English girls, flushed with the exercise, passed by like god dessess on their beautiful English horses, while ever and anon a low musical laugh broke on the hum of conversation, which the stillness of the air-the sure presage of a storm-rendered sensible. Among them and beside them rode the cavaliers, now restraining with firm hand the impetuosity of their horses, now, perchance bend...

The Pope descended from his chair, and was conducted to his priedieu, and we who were so near to him could make his prayers there our own. When he had once more assumed the tiara, and was again seated in the chair, the silver trumpet sounded in the gallery at the bottom of the nave, and the procession re formed and wound up the church, a long array of mitred Bishops, Patriarchs, and Cardinals, and of the lesser personages who in these high days give the procession their charm of variety. The Holy Father looked well, and .he scat tered his blessings as he passed through the kneeling lines with that royal grace that is so remarkable about his actions. His voice pre sently resounded through the church with.. its usual vigour, and when he sang the preface ...
