INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. We subjoin a summary of Inter-coloninl News from our files received per mail last Fri- day. VICTORIA. At the departure of the last mail, Mr. Gra- ham Berry had just succeeded in the formation of a new Administration. The announcement of the names ot the members was received with something like derision, and the statement of the Ministerial poiicy, as enunciated by the various Ministers when before their constituents for re-election, has not secured to them a laiger measure of respect or favour. The policy as disclosed by Mr. Berry at Geelong was crude and ill-considered, the main principles being to maintain and extend the system of protec- tive duties, to impose a special tax on the wealthy landowners, and to embroil the two Houses of the Legislature. The case of Judge Dunne, which after long delay has at length been finally settled by his unconditional resignation of his office, is another proof of the power of public opinion expressed through the press to caus...

LOCKEVILLE. (From a Correspondent) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

LOCKEVILLE. (From a Correspondent) Since my last, I have during a few slack hours, resorted tor recreation to the highly in- teresting and pleasing study of that populir literary production, "The Elementary Educa- tion Act of 1871" and " The bye-laws and re- gulations of the Central Board of Education." Of course I entered upon this work fully pre- pared to be convinced of the folly of arriving at a satisfactory result from my labor, and I am not disappointed ; a more dense fog it has never been my lot to experience. If the authors themselves clearly uuderstand the act and bye-laws, it is certainly more than either the school teachers, settlers or the district board itself in this neighborhood can. Although I myself have been victimized by the Education laws, yet it is not on my own account that I desire to call your attention to a few of the many inconsistencies of the laws, but on be- half of those poor struggling teachers in the outlying districts who areshametully neglected and ...

YORK. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

YORK. (From a Correspondent.) On Tuesday evening last the brethren of the Rose of York tent, I.O.R., gave a tea meeting and Soiree in the Mechanics' Hall, with the object of raising funds so as to enable them to commence in good earnest the erection of their Rechabites Hall. The hall which had been tastefully decorated by the hands of the fair   sex, was crowded in every part, and the   numerous and amply supplied tables, bore pleas- ing testimony of the utmost enthusiasm of the brethren, and likewise the taste, zeal, and amiability of the ladies presiding upon the oc- casion. The following were the ladies who presided, and with their usual unsophisticated vivacity, contributed in no small degree to make the evening entertainment, a pleasent one; namely-the Mesdames, Pyke, Robson, Dins- dale, Bradshaw, Christie, Coalles, Tomkinson, also the Misses Boyd, Connolly, and McCarty. A number of very select, and inspiring songs _ was rendered by Miss J. Boyd, and a...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

©foc t&lcstmt Uttstnliiiii ©iiucs. SOIiUM NON MUTAT GENUS. lUESDAYTsEFmMBER^ïr IS75. The great mystery of the day in Wes- tern Australia is without doubt the Northern Railway. We took the trouble some time back of detailing some very unpleasant truths concerning the matter, and of essaying to wipe out all the offi- cial clouds of secrecy that enveloped it. Bat it would seem that truth is stranger fiction, and the mystery is growing thicker than ever. We have been ac- cused of knowing nothing about the mat- ter, of writing bap-hazard in the dark, and a well-meaning correspondent in a contemporary is confident that Mr. Vic- tor and his office could never have been known to us. Now, we have nothing whatever to do with who surveyed the line, who watched over its construction, or what particular office Mr. Victor holds, or what particular salary he draws. We have no weakness for tuning our harp to the song of how long Mr. Palmer may have been mixed up with railways and their cons...

LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

LOCAL AND GENERAL. Held Over :-We are again obliged to hold over Country News, Correspondence and other matter until our next issue. The Rev. J. L. Gardner :-We understand that the Rev. J. L. Gardner has formally resigned his position as Assistant Chaplain of St. George's Cathedral, Perth. The Bishop has accepted his resignation, exonerated him from all blame, and guarantees the payment of his passage home to England. We are quite sure from the opinions we have heard expressed that the majority of the congregation will sincerely regret the loss of the Rev. gentleman, and we should not be at all surprised if immediate steps were taken to endeavour to retain his minis- trations here. The Parishioners' Churchwarden :-In our last issue we reported that E. W. Landor Esq., had been elected Parishioners' Churchwarden for St. George's Cathedral in the room of C. H. Chiton Esq., resigned. We have since been informed that at the meeting for the said elec- tion the resignation of C. H. Clifton...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-In your issue of the 7th inst., appears a letter from "James Brown" in reply to my little " mite on the question of a fund for the Church of England Clergy. His logical deduc- tion are rather lame. I have not in the " mite" stated anything about riches or poverty. I am aware that Dr. Primrose, and the Rev. Charles Goldsmith were clergymen of small means, but what has means to do with forming character ? Is your correspondent desirous of putting forward the idea that a man must be wealthy to be good. Give us Dr. Primroses and we shall raise funds to support them, nay place them beyond care of the loaves and fishes. I refer " James Brown" to a letter in the Herald of the 28th August signed "CD." to show him that the feeling of dislike is general. " Billingsgate" wont do. If my letter is incorrect, and does not express the feelings of many Churchmen it will have no effect ; ii on the other hand I am correct, calling bad names will be of little use...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the W. A. Times. ' Sir,-In consequence of the suppression of my letter to the Dean resigning the office of Church- warden, there is an impression abroad that it contained a something which it was thought advisable to conceal. Now as far as I am con- cerned the Dean is at liberty to publish it if he likes, for it contained nothing that I objected to being known. Yours truly, CHAS. H. CLIFTON. Sept. 20th, 1875.

"OUR MAN ABOUT TOWN." "TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

« . OUR MAN ABOUT TOWN." To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TlMES. < Sir,-If you would kindly permit a few re- marks to appear in your valuable paper I should esteem it a favour. I know that your circulation has considerably increased in Fre- mantle, and will no doubt steadily continue to do so. It therefore appears to me that opinions and statements that are not founded on truth should, whenever they manage to creep into your columns be contradicted ; it is on these grounds I hasten to correct some re- marks of " Our man about town" which ap- peared in your last issue ; this writer whoever he may be is not a searcher after truth. No one here ever thinks of questioning the respect ability.ota man on his ticket, and it is quite a new idea to look upon Woollams asa sawyer; all who knew that individual called bim a . ' stevedore", his chief occupation being wool stowing on board ships, and even at that em- ployment he is not always able to find suffi- cient occupation for himself. C...

CHURCH OF ENGLAND SUSTENTATION FUND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

CHURCH OF ENGLAND SUSTENTATION Furn To the Editob op the W. A. Times, Sir,-I was in hopes that we should not have seen any more letters in the papers about the Sustentation Fund. I think I am expres- sing the feeling of a very great many persons when I say that the sooner the matter is al- lowed to drop the better, for surely any one who reads with attention the beautiful gospel for the 5th inst, must be convinced that the anxiety for the future, as displayed by the advocates of the Sustentation Fund is entirely contrary to Scripture. Yours truly, PROTESTANT. Perth, 16th Sept., 1875.

THE FUTURE BISHOPS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE SUSTENTATION FUND. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

THE FUTURE BISHOPS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE SUSTEN- TATION FUND. To the Editor op the W. A. Times, Sir,-No better answer to " Fair play for all" in your paper of 27th ult., as to our future Bishops, could "be given than a perusal of the Rev. James Brown's letter in your issue of 7th inst. After reading that letter I am confident most churchmen will agree with me that the proposed " vacancy in the Archdeaconry" is not a thing to be desired. And all churchmen having at heart the true interests of the church will rejoice that the selection of our future Bishops is not at all likely to be confined to the clergy of this colony. The church would indeed want a "Sustentation Fund ;" if that was our only resource. "Fair Play" is not I hope in any way directly interested-if he is disap- pointed, he surely will be. The subject of Mr. Brown's letter is the "Sustentation Fund." Very careiully have I gone through it, expecting to find "a why and wherefore" for the proposed fund. Nothing of th...

Adelaide Swan River ... Van Dieman's Land New Zealand Cape Total ... 268,420 Bales. About 12,000 bales, chiefly Cape, have been forwarded to the continent and the interior, and as but few more shipments are expected from the colonies, the total for disposal is not likely to exceed 2S0,000 bales. The market here is perfectly quiet, and in the absence of transactions the tendency of prices can scarcely be judged. It seems, how- ever, improbable that any great change is im- pending, especially since the favourable turn in the weather has to some extent removed the fears of a deficient harvest. Stocks of wool in consumers' hands are moderate, and as the trade, esp...

ALBANY. (From our own Correspondent). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

ALBANY. (From our own Correspondent). The shareholders of the Standard Gold Min- ing Company, and in fact everyone interested in the future of this district have been bitterly disappointed at the result of the crushings which have lately taken place at Kendenup. No gold has been found in any of the stone which has hitherto been treated, and we ask ourselves in bewildered astonishment, what can be the cause ? The company did not commence operations until the tact of the Kendenup reef being gold bearing had apparently been placed beyond doubt. Three separate parcels of stone, were at different times sent to Melbourne for assay, were entrusted in every case to agents of un- doubted honour and integrity, and were treated wiih the greatest care by the well known min- ing manager Mr. John Lewis of North Clunes. We might also mention Mr. Wanliss of Balla- rat, as having greatly interested himself in the matter and acted on our behalf. In all three cases gold in payable quantities was obtai...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Dear Sir,-Will you allow me a few lines to say a word or two about shipping horses. I have often noticed the style of shipping horses to India. A vessel chartered to take horses is advertised to sail on such-and-such a day ; the horses are brought down hurry-scurry the day before ; shipped off into the vessel as speedily and as quietly as possible, and away they go by daylight next morn to see our shores no more. I believe many a horse is shipped quietly away without the consent of its owner. A man has a horse that he values and he turns it out for a run in the bush : if a vessel is about to sail with horses, his horse with many more may be run down to port and shipped : when the man looks for his horse he cannot find him, for instead of running on land, he has taken a run over the sea. I think that if one or more of our M.L.C's., were to bring a bill before the Council to the effect, "That all stock before being shipped be duly examined and the hei...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 September 1875

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-In the Inquirer of the 18th of August, appears a letter, signed, " Michael Quinn" junr., with reference to duty upon imported flour. The writer accuses the Editor of taking a wrong view of the matter,' and expresses an opinion that the only thing needed to secure the progress of farming, is a sure market, which he states has never yet been procurable in the colony. Now Sir, Mr. " Q" or any one else, in this dis- trict, would have had no difficulty in disposing of one or two thousand bushels of wheat at any time, within the last two years ; for six shillings per bushel, one shilling more than Mr. "Q" thinks would pay the grower. And he need only have carted four miles. Mr. " Q" says, ask merchants to purchase 100 tons of sandalwood and they will one and all do so ; quite true ; and without doubt, would also purchase wheat on the same terms as they do sandalwood. The fact is in this district, farmers who should grow wheat-but prefer a shady tree ...
