TO THE GENTLEMEN PRESENTING THE ADDRESS, AND TO THE RESIDENTS GENERALLY OF THE TOWN AND DISTRICT OF FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
TO THE GENTLEMBEN PRESENTING THE ADDRESS, AND TO THE RESI DENTS GENERALLY OF THE TOWN AND DISTRICT OF FREMANTLE. It is with feelings of grateful satisfaction that I have the honor to acknowledge your address, recording your kindly appreciation of my humble services as a Government official, and also as a brother townsman and fellow colo nist. Although Gentlemen, I have been but six years a resident in your town, I cannot forget, that I came amongst you not as a perfect stranger, but as one, who had more or less identified himself with you all by a sojourn of nearly twenty years in the neighibouning Metropolis. Imay doubtless plead guilty to, many short comings, incidental to most officials, filling any onerous and responsible position, but thislmay proudly say, that from the commencement to this the termination of my public career, I haveever endeavoured, through good report, and evil report, to: maintain the character of an honest and independant Magistrate. The Address and Testimo...
TIMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
TIiMBER. It is with great satisfaction we have to record, that at least justice is being done to the excellence of our Jarrah, which for resistance to the attaklrs of the Teredo underwater and the White Ant above has an established character. It is equally enduring whoen submerged. We have orders to a considerable extent for jetty work in Melbourne and tRailway Sleepers in India. Every day encreases the list of converts to the necessity of harbor improvements at the Port of Fremantle. Even in the midst of summer we have gales of wind, which cause much alarm to shipowners and Captains, Vessels seeking cargo being obliged toanchor in an open roadstead, and to load and unload, subject to the state of the weather. Happily at this present moment adl party and personal feelings, so characteristic of differences of opinion in limited communities even on public subjects, have been muchmodi fled, and the question of how and by what means, these inconveniences are to be remedied is being calm...
CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
CHAMPION BAY. (Frorn a Conrespondent.) Reform! and "sign the petition" winding up with a pious benediction for the Queen, has for some time past been the war cry of some of our Victorian Reformers, not that I (or any one else) ever dream that one half- of the grievances are real, or doubt that many are perfectly imaginary. Nevertheless we have evils or abuses existing here, that are as discreditable to the inhabitants of a district as well as the Government of the Country--to the Government for knowinglf allowing such a state of things to exist, and to the inhabitants for not uniting and compelling their com plaints to be heard, until a Reformation is effected. Let the well wishers for the pros perity and advancement of this district strike at semine of the abuses which unquestonably prevent that advancement. Take one of the many departments-our Survey department, andsuch a state of things as exist here could not be found, and would not be tolerated in any other country than Western...

CANNING RACES. (From our own Correspondent.) On Wednesday the 20th Instant, the Canning Races came off according to advertisement on a splendid new course,-a beautiful level plateau called the " Major's Plain," situate on the Maddington Estate belonging to our esteemed Surveyor General, Capt. J. S. Roe, Rt. N. The day was everything that could be wished for, and the attendance both numerous and highly respectable. The intervals between the Races were enlivened by 'Sweet Music' from the instruments of the Metropolitan Band, which had been bronght over for that purpose. The first Race, which commenced shortly after 11 a.m., was?-The Maiden Plate-for £15--1 mile and a distance. Heats-for all Horses that had never won public money.

COMMERCIAL [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
COMMEROeIAl Trade remains much as it was at the date of our last Summary. Considerable quan tities of goods have been moved off at auctions which are now becoming quite a recognized method of disposing of con signments, so very different to what it was a few years back. Quite a new era has been inaugurated in our commercial history by one or two houses of a more enterprising spirit than the very old ones employing the service of commission sales men. The subject would hardly be worth noticing if it was not for the pertinacious obstinacy with which many commercial men persist in opposing it. We believe those who accept the service of such an agent will soon find its advantages, and that both buyer and seller will reap a benefit. A very large amount of business that might easily be done by Commercial Houses in the colony is now taken by firms in the other colonies who send over their . travellers at great expence to so licit orders from small shopkeepers, and as transactions are all f...
PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
PUBLIC WmORKS. We have nothing new to notice under this head. Beyond a few small contracts for erecting police stables in the country districts, there appears to be little going on. Indeed the Government seem de termined to ignore altogether the neces sity for undertaking any useful or neces sary public works, and the public are equally apathetic and indifferent on the subject. We have heard nothing of the result of.the Road Committees that were estab iished a short time since in the various districts, and from which so much was expected. Certainly the question of roads will before long force itself upon the at tention of settlers in a way that will de mand something being done. As the convict road parties decrease-which they must, the main lines of communication between the producing districts and the city and port wiil get worse and worse, till in a very short time they will become altogether impassible, and it is not too much to say, if they once get into such a condition, it wil...
LABOR [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
LABOR of all kinds continues scarce, and there is little prospect of the market improving but rather of its getting worse. Nearly every vessel that leaves for the Eastern Colonies carries away a number of our best servants male and female, and the useless-the lazy, and the helpless are left behind.
CONVICTISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
- OONFVIOTISM. * On this head we have happily but little to communicate, with the exception of a reckless attempt of seven prisoners to escape, recaptured after much priva tion in York. They committed no acts of violenwe, and we understand have been leniently dealt with-in other res pects the conduct of the probation pri soners-has be n good. It is useless to. conceal the fact, as a rule the Crown prisoners consider, that so long as they. are. civil they have a right to be lazy-and this compromise is generally accepted-by the warders them selves, especially-those in charge of dis tant and -isolated road parties, from whom it would be useless, if not dange rous to require more exertion than they choose to give. .. Besides, all inducement-to iake any exertion is taken away, ;as theare are now no remission marks, and" each prisoner after doing his fdll probation .time, is released to do the remainder of .it in full within the colony. It is for these reasons that we would suggest the co...
IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
IMMIGRATION. Looking at the great demand for this kind of labor throughout all the other colonies-the large funds appropriated to import it-and the selection of paid agents to forward it, we cannot pretend without a well organized system, and that expensive, to compete successfully with them in the home market. That our climate is the best, our soil the most productive, our seas the most teeming, our timber unique, and above allour land regulations the rmQst liberal, are undoubted fiate. Coupled with the outlay of borrowed capital, by a special arrangement, laborers of good character, after a fixed term of employment on puiblic works should be entitled to small allotments (along the line if practicable) with settlement. 'Where there is so much unoccupied land we think it would be not only an additional but an effective inducement. We lay great stress upon increased population being induced to come, as returning to the revenue by the consumption of duty. paying articles, much that wi...

AMUSEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 30 January 1869
AMUSEMENTS. The past month has been productive of more than the usual amount ofrecreation. The ·Fremantle Amateur Dramatic Company gave a performance on the 18th and 19th instant, which was so liberally patronized as to induce the Company to venture on repeating the performance a third night, which was successful. The representa tion met with general praise and as an Amateur performance was greatly above the average. In the city (Perth), the Choral Soceity gave on Wednesday last a concert of vocal and instrumental music under the direction of a music gentle man a (visitor, to the Colony,) Mr. 0. H. Compton. The concert was most suc cessful, and the performance of Mr. Compton on tlie harmonium loudly ap plauded.
