THE CHRISTMAS GOVERNMENT SCHOOL EXAMINATIONS, 1868. To the Editor of the Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 16 January 1869

THE CHRISTMAS GOVERNMENT SCHOOL EXAMINFATIONS, 1868. To the Editor of the Herald. SIR, The report of some of the school examina tions in the W. A. Church of England Magazin;e for the ctirrent month, is as amusing, as it is absurd, as far as any ieally beneficial informa tion as to the state.of the children attending the Government Schools is concerried. First, with regard to the Perth boys' school. The Examiner states :-"' I examined the First Class, &c., &c.," but neither facts nor figures are given to tell who. are in the first class. I wonder how many out of the 200 and odd boys attending this school comprise the First Class I I pass over the remarks on ' diffi lult' passages of reading. About the Arithmetic, the Exam iner says-:-" Some of the boys acquitted them selves very satisfattorily on this subject." A very indefinite statement is this, and then follow these significant remarks :-" Perhaps on the whole the accuracy was not all that could be wished, &amp...

REPLY. OFFICERS, BRETHREN AND FRIENDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 16 January 1869

REPLY.. Orrscaas, BRETHREN AND FRIBNDS. In thanking you for the address that has just been so:kindly presented to me, my feel ings cannot be dtherwise than of a mingled nature. I am proud that my small services in for warding the principles of Odd Fellowship and foun Jing a Lodge in Western Australia should thus be publicly acknowledged. I receive with gratitude the flattering ex pressions you have used in respect to those services, and though I cannot assume to my self all the praise that in your gondness you have accorded to me, I may say there are few incidents in my long career in the colony which I can review with such satisfaction-as the com mencement and progress of Odd Fellowship. For some years the struggle was great, the work was all up hill, and Ianm too well aware that had not my efforts Ilbee?liberally aided by the energetic assistance of some whose faces, in our Lodge room, I now, in all human pro bability, see for the last time, and others alas! whose faces we shall n...

SNAKE-BITE ANTIDOTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 16 January 1869

SNAKE -BITE ANTIDOTE. During the month several opportunities have been taken ad!vantage of for bri;ling toa distinct test the effect on the human slbject of a remedy advocated bv Profe~sor Halford as an a?nidote for snake-bite. This con:ists an injecting liquid ammonia into the veins of the person bitten. Professor Halford after having tried its efEcacy on some dogs, con. sidered the result sufficiently encouraging to publish it as a. probably cfflective remedy. Three or four weeks ago a nana nmed Sey mour Smith; in the neighbourhood of Beech worth, was bitten by a snake, and although the usual remedie3 were resorted to, he appeared to be sinking and likely to die. Dr. Dempster, under these circiinmstarnce, ventured to try the injection of ammoni ilnto a vein, and the man rallied immediately; and although his system has sustained a severe shock, he is now in a fair way to complete recovery. Last week the remedy was again adoptetl, under the eye of Professor Halford. in the case of J...

IT is satisfactoiy to us to observe .the great changes that have taken place in the minds of many members of our com munity for whose opinions we entertain the greatest lcspect, inasmuch as we be lieve them to have been fouided on con viction. Though we dissented from the reasons upon which those convictions were grounded, we still felt, that as the holders of them were honiest in their be lief of their reasonableness, they were justly entitled to credit for their sincerity. Our regret at the difference of opinion existing between us and them on manuy public questions was the more. poignant, as socially these gentlemen held and very deservedly a high position, and necessarily exercised a considerable in fluence amongst those, who naturally attached great weight to their opinion on questions to which they had neither in clination, time, or it might be, know ledge to consider and weigh.

THE FREMANTLE DRAMATIC AMATEURS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 January 1869

THE FREMANTLE DRAMATIC AMATEURS. Thelabsence of innocent and rational amuse ment in the colony.is a constant source of dis satisfaction. . and. complaint with all classes. Recreation is as needful for man's healthy exis tence as food or'exercise, and there.is no plea santer or more harmless' amusement than Dramatic .representations. • I.: shall. not here eiiter 'pon a vindication of professional Theatri-. cal representations, but will merely observe that, the objections- that are urged against professional performances cannot be .made against Amateur' retlresentations. The art of acting is the holding the mirror up to nature to resect. chaac~ster, to. deliniate by by means of voice, manner,: facial 'expression, and gesture, certain creations drawn by the dramatist from his.knowledge of human nature, and the highest aim of the actor, is to identify himself with the character he is personating: It cannot of course be supposed that in privrte life many can, be found who have sufficient...

BEN0 JonSToN, The cry of despair which lose fromi the Moslems when they beheld the fall of their Emir, and the capture of their consecrated flag, I shall nevor forget. In its intensity of rage and sorrow it shrilled into a wild, unearthly shriek. They redoubled their already frantic efforts, and the storm of battle raged round us more furiously than ever. Striding across the prostrate body of the Saracen chief stood Redglaive, in one hand the precious banner in the other his death-dealing axe, which never fell ex cept to slay, nor smote, save to destroy. Exasperated , beyond endurance by the maddening sight, the Saracens pres sed on in surging mases, eager to kill' the Saxon, panting for. his blood. "Down -to. Jehanum with the wild Giaour !" they shouted. "To Zatani with him ! Allah, Allah, hu!" But by this time we were gallantly ...

IN a former issue containing our last Summary we stated, and with great sa tisfaction from the best authority, that the Revenue for the past financial year exceeded £100,000, for the first time in the annals of the colony, and that it not only provided for the estimated expendi ture of 1869, (£96,000) but would leave a surplus of £4,000, to the credit of 1870. We then stated that the revenue of the colony was an increasing one-much as we condemned its anticipation in the form of increased salaries to public of ficials, we still thought it a fair subject for congratulation. We have now only to express our hopes that at the close of the ensuing year, we may be in a condition to shew a still further improvement, and that too in face of the calamity which has fallen so heavily on the most promising district of the colony, and which must tell on the consumption of articles subject to ad va lorem duties-as the merchant and store keeper cannot afford where there is no produce in 'exchange ...

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 23 January 1869

AIRIVAL O THE ENGLISH MAIL. The English Mail arrived at the ap pointed time-and the P. and O0. Com pany have faithfully performed the con ditions of their Postal Contract. The principal intelligence, and by no means..uninteresting, are the details of the General Election, given generally in our last-and confirming the estimate we formed of the relative strength of the great contending parties. The Conserva ties muster a compact body of 276 votes, upon whom their leaders can rely. The total members of the House being 658, 382 represents the difference, all of which the uninitiated [liberal outsiders claim as representing the followers of Mr. Gladstone, and upon whom he can rely. Experience of public men leads us to the conclusion, that out of that num ber, will be found many high-minded in dependant gentlemen, who have no de cided personal attachments or Political leanings-who will vote for measures not men; again there are many of advanced views and opinions, who if they are not sat...
