LOCKEVILLE. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 September 1875

LOCKEVILLE. (From a Correspondent.) At a distance of about five miles north of the town of Busselton, a town site bearing the euphonious title of Wonnerup is situated. Under what extraordinary circumstances such a selection was made must be a matter cf wonder and astonishment to the unhappy wayfarer whom fate directs thither. It is " water, water everywhere. " However desolate and wretched the aspect of the place must have been formerly, the past five years have wrought a wonderful change ; no longer desolate as a watery waste, the town site of Wonnerup is a thriving busy locality. The W. A. Timber Company have performed in the short space of five years that which would have occupied the colony fifty or more. Within a radius of two miles we can muster a population o'f about 150 souls. But it is not so much to speak of the doings of the Timber Company in this letter, as to let you know that we are in existence ; and no doubt you will be surprised to hear that the inhabitants of the l...

A special meeting of the port council was held on the 6th instant, at their office - face- tiously designated " The hole in the Corner," High Street, a most undignified situation for a municipal council to meet.

To the Editor of the W.A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 September 1875

To the Editor of the W.A. Times. Sir,-By a despatch recently received from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, his Lordship comments upon the great amount oi drunkenness in the penal Colony of Western Australia; too true I am sorry to have it in my power to say. But perhaps it may not be un- interesting for his Lordship and the world at large to know that there is a local ordinance in force in this Colony granting the concession, to employers of labour, to sell their workmen, beer, wine, or spirits to the extent of one third of their daily earnings, providing they do not reside within two miles of any licensed public house, without paying one single penny, to the revenue. The act was very well, thirty five years since when it was first made, when there was only one public house within fifty miles of York, but the case stands different at the pre- sent day. In plain speaking the act is only a hap for a man's earnings, and is open to abuse in other respects ; tor some unprinciple...

QUARTERLY LICENSING MEETING, Perth, 6th September, 1875. (On the Bench E. W. Landor, Esq., P.M. W. Knight, Esq. and C. H. Clifton Esq., J.P.'s). H. Wood, tailor, Perth, applied for a boarding and lodging .house license for .the premises lately occupied as the " W. A. Time3" Office. There being no objection on the part of the Êolice or others, a certificate was granted, the lench at the same time cautioniug the applicant on the necessity of his proper conduct of the house, which was situated in a much frequented part of the city. James Orr, Canning, by his solicitor, Mr. Howell, applied for a continuance of his license for the "Horse Shoe" Inn.

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MOTAT GENUS. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 10, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 September 1875

The Western Australian Times SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1875.       We have received a copy of statistical tables relating to the colony of Western Australia, prepared for, the Philadelphia Exhibition of 1876. These statistics are compiled from official records in the Colonial Secretary's Office during a term of five years, viz., from 1870 to 1874. To all interested in the welfare of the colony, and desirous of obtaining a fair idea of its progress and present condition, the tables referred to will be very acceptable. We purpose giving a casual glance at some of the more important data con- tained therein. Increase of population is   generally a fair guage of a colony's ad- vancement, and taking the numbers before us to be strictly reliable, there is no very great room for congratula- tion. In the year 1870 the popula- tion is set down at 25,084 and in 1874 we find it increased to 26,209, making   an ...

Local and Gerneral. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 September 1875

Local and General. Stone Cartage :-At the last meeting of the City Council, Councillor Howlett made some severe strictures in regard to the action of that body in the matter of stone cartage. It would appear that the stone is carted by contract, at so much per hundred yards ; but that the con- tractor, after taking the larger stone, charges by the day for the finer material, that is used for footpaths ; although such is included in the pro- scribed yards, and as a consequence in the con- tract. It certainly seems to us that Councillor Howlett has considerable reason on his side, for 100 yards of stone, are neither more nor less, whether composed of large or fine material. But Councillor Jewell's proposition which has been adopted is rather rich in its way. Councillor Jewell says, " cart all the larger stone in the 100 yards, and then let the Supervisor measure the surplus fine material and deduct it from the total." Councillor Jewell is undoubtedly fond of addition and subtraction, ...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY,SEPTEMBER 14,1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 September 1875

$|ie Mlestem australian itmcs. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESÍ>AYTsEPTKMBETVÍ4riS75. In an article in our last issue we gave Burne prominent facts from statistical tables relating to our colony. We then referred mainly to what may be termed the population question, and we now purpose taking a casual glance at agii cultural and other matters as shown upon the tables in question. Turning to the agricultural returns we find under the head of wheat in 1870, about 26,640 acres in crop. In 1871-2 the number of acres increased by some five thousand ; but in 1873-4 the figures fell off, and in the latter ypar we find only 23,427 returned. Barley too, stands highest in 1870, and from that period it is in the descending scale, amounting in 1874, to 4,702 acres compared with 5439, in 1870. In oats too, there is a still greater tailing off ; 1870-1, being the two best years; but after that, an annual diminution is to be observed, and 1874 givesabout one-half the number of acresin 1870.

GUILDFORD, (Friday, 10th). (From our own Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 September 1875

GUILDFORD, (Friday, 10th). (From our own Correspondent). On Saturday night there is to be another musical entertainment in the Mechanic's Hall, I believe His Excellency the Governor is to be present, so no doubt there will be a crowded house. Since my last to you we have had a strong blow from the N.W. with heavy rain accom- panied by lightning and thunder, the water rose some feet higher than it has been all through the winter, and it was anticipated we would have a flood, and no doubt if the wind had not changed we should. Since Tuesday we have had fine bracing days with chilly nights. To night the monthly parade of the volunteers took place on the square under the command of Lieutenant Hamersley after which they had a moonlight march to the west end of the town headed by the volunteer band which caused quite a sensation in our quiet and peaceful little town. Men women and children all turned out to hear the lively strains of music. Great praise and credit is due to the bandmaster...

Correspondence. THE SUSTENTATION FUND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W.A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 September 1875

qxxe$$onl ente. THE SUSTENTATION FUND. To the Editor of the W.A. Times, Sir,-There is a class of persons in this world whose want of benevolence prompts them to oppose any public project that may be started, to which they fear that they may be called upon to render pecuniary aid. Such persons are not generally content merely to refuse their assistance, but set themselves diligently to work to raise up a spirit of oppo- sition ; they will neither do good themselves nor allow others to do a good work unopposed. When they belong to a community which originates some scheme for promoting the welfare of that community they feel that they must either assist or run the risk of being considered illiberal and niggardly. They know that Scripture bids every man while he has time to " do good unto all men, and especially unto those who are of the household of faith ;" they know also that Scripture says "whoso hatli this world's goods and seeth his brother have need and shutteth up his compassion...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times, Sir,-Not being what is called a "bona, fide churchman" I have no admission to a share in the direction of her affairs. Nevertheless I must on behalf of our children, feel deeply interested in her welfare. Until our population increases considerably, the little religious teaching our children will be blessed with, will come through that section of the christian churches. 1 approve of a "Sustentation Fund," but I want to know what we are going to sustain ? Will the Synod, give a guarantee that the money invested shall for ever be devoted to the worship of God according to the present teaching of those Ave call evangelicals? If instead of Protestantism, we are expected to support a spurious kind of Romanism, then, I say, away with all sustentation, and let the Church of England in Western Australia, go with the railroads, the breakwaters, responsible govern- ment, recreation grounds, sanitary improve- ments, and various other extinct productions of our...
