TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

TO THE EDITOB. Sir,- Looking at prices quoted in the Singa- pore Trade Circular of the various commodities in their market, the idea occurred to me, that an inquiry into the actual or probable profit obtainable on some of the articles exported from Western Australia, would be an interest- ing subject to the commercial portion of your readers, and might be set forth as a problem inaccounts. , In so doing a transposition ef weights, &c. is necessary to arrive at a correct solution, Our weights in exports are tons, cwts., qrs, and lbs., and currency £ s. d. Theirs in Singa- pore are piculs and catties, and currency dollars and cents. A picul equals 133} lbs., and there are 100 catties in a picul, so that 16 piculs and 80 catties make a ton of 2240 lbs. There are 100 cents in a dollar, and the value of the dollar is variable according to rate of exchange ; sometimes the value quoted is 4s. 3d., 4s. 3£d., or perhaps as high as 4s. 6d. per dollar. For example, suppose I export 50 ...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

0 X ï t $ m 0 « & * » * * , TO THE EDITOB. SIB,-A great - deal has been, and is being said in reference to the dreadful crime of a member of the Government using.his influenoe to secure the return of members of Council who support the general policy of the Government, although at the same time nattung is said ot those Government officers who are taking a prominent part ia promoting the" retara of members direotly opposed to the Government. I hare therefore thought it would perhaps, not be unprofitable to those political ignoramases, who are so busy in endeavouring to hound on a publio cry against the Colonial Secretary, to know what is done elsewhere. The following extract from the report published in the Aus- tralasian of the debate in committee on the Constitution Amendment Bill of Victoria will shew what the Chief Secretary of that colony is not afraid to own be does :-" Mr. Francis " could only say he did everything he could to " encourage a gentleman of the intelligence...

ALBANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

ALBANY. Sir T. COCKBURN-CAMPBELL was elec- ted to-day (Sept. 23), without opposition, as member for the Plantagenet district. There was a numerously-attended meeting at the Court-house on the pre- vious evening; at which the candidate for election expressed his views on the questions before the country, giving his reasons for thinking it advisable that we should adopt the Responsible form of Government ; strongly advocating a selec- ted Upper House, as being the only ' means of ensuring the presence in it of i those elements necessary to attain the object for which an Upper House is re- quired, and condemning an elected Upper House, as working for the private inte- rests of a single class, aud therefore necessarily obstructive and indefensible. None of the electors addressed ' the meeting, which separated after passing a unanimous vote of confidence in Sir T. C. CAMPBELL. Sept. 23, 1874.

FREMANTLE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

FÄEMANTLB ELECTION. The nomination and election of " sufficient and discreet persons" to serve in the Legisla- tive Council as representatives of Fremantle took place on Thursday last. There were three candidates,-Messrs. W. E. Marmion, W. S. Pearse, and L. A. Manning. Elections in Fre- mantle are always lively, but never were the free and independent voters of the Port more enthusiastic in support of their favorite candi- dates. From an early hour the streets were all agog, and towards ten o'clock, the hour fixed for the nomination of candidates, crowds of people trooped towards that dingy building that does general duty on all public occasions at the principal port of the colony-the Odd- fellows' Hall. Their reigned throughout the day an unusually exciting amount of what is eupheuisticall termed popular'effervescence, but the genaral conduct of the crowd was such as reflected credit upon a holiday community. We heard little of any language that could be called " foul." Very free a...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

%\z iiesterit Australia» ®imes. SOLÜM NON MÜTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1874. THE result of the elections being no longer doubtful, we are able to estimate their effects on the great question before the people. Responsible Government Aye or No ?-has been replied to in the affirmative by 8 against 3, two votes being as yet uncertain, and the fact of any election having taken place in the North-Wesc being as yet doubtful, but, if a representative be elected, there is little doubt that his vote will be recorded in favour of the Constitution Act. The metropolis has returned its for- mer members, both of whom are against the change proposed, but the number of votes polled by MB. PARKER shows clearly that the decision is by no means unanimous. Mr. MAITLAND BROWN'S election for Geraldton tells for little more than that gentleman's well-known and well-me- rited popularity ; his vote is the only certain gain to the minority. With respect to the question whether the Upper House shall be no...

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 October 1874

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. (Continued.) Lr the Commons House, by whatever name it may De called, is to represent the mind, the franchise must embrace the large majority of the people, and, if its members are to represent the people personally, their qualification must be the same as that for an elector. It re- mains, as the responsibility of the elec- tors, to choose fitting representatives, .re- presentatives, that is, of the principles of the majority, while that of their repre- sentatives to them, is, to carry out those principles, as far as opportunity is af- forded, and circumstances will permit. The pursuing abstract principles into immediate practice is, perhaps, the great- est error that a statesman can commit. It has been the bane of France, pro- bably, in a great measure, from want of an Upper Chamber, possibly as much as from the character of the people. It has commonly been checked in England as well by the action of tho House of Lords, as by the practical characte...

MR. J. H. MONG-Eß AND Ttíri ELECTORS OP YORK AND BEVERLEY. Mr. J. H. MONGER met the electors of this district on Tuesday last. There was a large attendance, as on the former occasion of Mr. S. S. Parker addressing them. The York band also attended, and astonished us with their proficiency. On the motion of Mr. W. W. Hoops, seconded by Mr. Walpole Champneys, Mr. J. T. Monger took the chair, who expressed a hope that the meeting would be characterised by quietness and pro- priety, and that any questions would be put with civility, and not in an insulting manner. He had been asked by many why he was not appointed Chairman on the occasion of Mr. Parker's address ; he said he had not been asked, for what reason he would leave the meeting to judge. Mr, J. H. MOXOBB then said :-Mr. Chairman gentlemen, and fellow-voters, it gives me great pleasure to meet so many here to-night.

WIFE-MURDER AT GERALDTON. At the Quarter Sessions, held at Geraldton, before G. Eliot, Esq., R.M. (Chairman) ; R. Fairbairn, Esq., Acting R.M ; Charles Crow- ther, Esq., J.P; and C. Foss, Esq., J.P; on Wednesday, Sept. 2nd, George Battersby was charged with the manslaughter ol his wife. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. The evi- dence adduced was as follows : W. Wood said-I was living in Geraldton on the 16th June last. The prisoner, Geo. Battersby, and his wife were then living about 50 or 60 yards distant from my house, their front door being opposite mine. I saw Battersby and his wife, about 5 o'clock on the evening of 16th, leaning against their own door; both appeared the worse for drink. I subsequently saw them enter the house ; the prisoner took hold of his wife's arm, and she either slipped or fell down. I think the door was left open. Some time later, I saw Battersby speaking to the police. I did not hear any quarrelling be- tween the prisoner and his wife. I have fre- quent...

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 October 1874

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. (Continued J Although the stoppage of supplies is the ultima ratio of the Commons House, it is not in England, now contempla- ted even as a possibility ; because experi- ence and habit have so combined to maintain a balance of power between the three.estates, that . the - necessity for it is never likely* to" arise ; but in a-new Go- vernment,, with" inexperienced men,-it might not be impossible, but probably it has to be guarded against with all due precaution. That which has most ma- terially tended to prevent any necessity for such au extreme- measure is the prin- ciple of appropriation, whereby al monies voted are so for certain purposes^ only ; this, which had inde°d been recog- nised befoie, was first formally established by statute in the reign of Charles II., and from that period commenced' the supply, technically called the Civil List, Which, at the first, included all the ex- penses of Government, and now is con- fined to those which more i...

TELEGRAPH LINE FROM ALBANY TO EUCLA. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 October 1874

TELEGRAPH LINE FROMALBANÏ" TO EUCLA. Mr. Fleming, Superintendent of Tele- graphs, originally recommended a direct survey of the line, with a view to set forth the real capabilities of the several landing places hereinafter mentioned ; and he suggested the chartering a vessel and the formation of a party for this purpose. He advised the adoption of the coast line because materials may be landed at convenient distances, and because this liue runs through immense patches of country set down by Mr. H. Y. L. Brown, the Government Geologist, as of silurian and metamorphic formations. Mr. John Forrest, of the Survey De- partment, who has traversed tbe whole euuntry, and had a perfect knowledge of it, expressed his concurrence as to the adoption of the coast line, but considered the chartering a vessel to convey persons to examine the country would be a waste of time and money. He - gave reliable opinions from his own observations, and other sources, of the various harbors along the coast. ...

TO THE EDITOB. Deab Mr. Editor,-Newcastle, usually so dull and so lifeless, has lately been the scene of gay dissipation during the last few months. Balls, concerts, and picnics have succeeded, one another with a rapidity which is a pleasing contrast to the usually stagnant state of affjirs which exists over the hills, Again, we have our fair and races and agricultural ball in p< o spective, so that the fair will not be allowed to die out just yet. We are also to nave a bazaar on the fair and race day, for the land able purpose of building a parsonage, &c, &c. This will be held under the management of Mrs. Pidcock and a com mitte of ladies, (vide advertisement). Hitherto, bazaars have been failures in New- castle, but now, being under suitable manage- ment, ifc is confidently expected that it will be a great success and that the ignoramuses of the district will learn how we do these sort of things in London. I am glad to see that the cricketers have re- su...
