THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

THE OWL AND THE MAGPIE. The Owl was thinking deeply; his brows were knit, and he looked as sage as Dr. Hora writing a prescription, or His Excellency being bored with an address. Maggie, even volatile Mag, was sobered and her chattering tongue was still. Every thing was very quiet, and the silence seemed quite shocked when the Owl in a deep voice said, "Do you know any thing about law, Maggie ?" Nothing was further from Maggie's thoughts, and nothing less agreeable to them. She had a faint memory of an action for a breach of pro- mise that she once set in motion, but that never came off ; for she did not like the law. So she answered rather tartly, "I know nothing about law, and I don't want to." For to tell the truth Maggie could be as curt and egotistic as a Shipowner's Clerk at times, even though it were a musical one ; yea, or even a double dyed aristocratic governmental clerk. The Owl was a little surprised and said, " What ? Are you going to adopt the important strut " " And w...

COUNTRY NEWS. GUILDFORD. VICE-REGAL TOUR. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

el COUNTRY NEWS. GUILDFORD. VICE-REGAL TOUR. (From a Correspondent) Guildford was honored to-day hy the presence of Mrs. Robinson, His Excellency the Governor and Suite on their return from the Eastern Districts, and Victoria Plains. They lunched at the Stirling Arms and left for Government House at 3 o'clock p.m. His Excellency appeared in excellent health ; and Mrs. Robinson looked as if she had enjoyed her trip. There was no notice of the Governor's intended arrival in Guildford; and the few gentlemen who were made aware of it, con- sidered the best compliment that could be paid His Excellency, was to avoid any public demon- stration, when, in all probability, he was anxious for quiet after his long journey. MECHANICS INSTITUTE. Mr. Allpike, who was Chairman of the Mechanics' Institute and Mr. Wear the Secre- tary having resigned office, a special meeting was held on Monday evening last, for the purpose of filling up the vacancies.

Supreme Court—Criminal Sittings. MONDAY, 11TH OCTOBER, 1875. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice, and a jury of twelve.) FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

Supreme Court-CYiaiu.«¿*i Sittings. MONDAY, 11TH OCTOBER, 1875. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice, and a jury oftwdve.) FRAUD AND CONSPIRACY. Henry William haiak Gillman, was charged with having on the 5th of March 1874, obtained certain moneys from one Henry Albert, Butcher of Fremantle, under false pretences. John McGibbon was arraigned for having conspired with the said Gillman to acquire such moneys by divers false representations. Defendants entered a plea of "notguilty." Mr. Howell and Mr. Parker appeared for McGibbon, and Gillman defended himself. Gillman addressed the court praying for an adjournment of the trial till the next sessions on the following grounds. Firstly, that no pro- per notification of the charge against him, had been tendered to him and he was therefore but insufficiently provided with any proper defence. Secondly, that the magisterial investigation had been held at Fremantle, whereas he had resided in Bunbury for 17 years past, and there his busi- ness h...

To THE EDITOR OT THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

To THE EDITOR OT THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-Being a constant reader and also a subscriber to your valuable paper, I could not fail to notice the correspondence which occa- sionally appears from Champion Bay ; moreover being a resident here, I am not a little interested in passing events. I noticed that a short time since allusion was made to sly grog selling, and that Mr. J. Harvey Jun., discovered one of the delinquents ; also that the Narra Tarra Mine was referred to as a particular resort of vendors of intoxicating drink by a correspondent signing himself " Truth" in yours of 28th Sept. It appears that some one in this district (perhaps the Secretary of the Narra Tarra Mining Co.,) has felt hurt at the various allusions in yours of the 27th August, and endeavors to contradict the assertion with reference to the drink traffic at that Mine, showing that a particular notice was issued for the guidance of all employees at the Mine. It is most certainly a credit to the Manager of the Narra...

CORRESPONDENCE. IMMIGRANTS. To THE EDITOR O» THB W. A. TIMBS, Sir,-In one of your papers the other day, I saw a letter from a person signing himself a poor emigrant, who states he has been in the colony 11 months, that he has travelled hundreds of miles, and that during that time he has earned ¿10. The certainly tells a pitiful tale, but I fancy there must be some facts connected with his case not told. However, to pnt him to the test, if Le chooses to come up here, and can and will work, I will undertake to find him 6 months work at piece work, either tank making, grubbing, or chopping thickets at prices at which I know he can or ought to earn 6s. to 7s. per day. As there has been so much said of late about immigrants, I will take the liberty as briefly as possible to state my experience of the labour market, and what is paid in this neighbourhood at the present time. 1 am rather a large employer of labour, and if I could get suitable people I should employ fully double the amount ...

JARRAH FOR NATAL, SOUTH AFRICA. To THÏ EDITOR OF THE W. A. Tnras, Sir,-In the shipping intelligence of this day's Inquirer, it is stated that the barque Glaslyn has arrived with a cargo of coal and, 'after discharging will proceed to Natal.' It is not however, mentioned that this vessel will take a cargo of our Jarrah Timber with her, and as I feel certain that many will be glad to hear of a new market having been opened for tins valued export, I have pleasure in advising you of my having received an order for a quantity to be shipped by the Glaslyn from the Government of Natal, who are engaged in public works on a large scale. Every care is being taken to select the most suitable timber, and I have every confidence that this will be only the forerunner of exten- sive shipments for that colony. lam Sir, Yours faithfully, JOHN MCCLEERY.

ANOTHER VOICE FROM YORK. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

ANOTHER VOICE FROM YORK. TO TOT rorros OF THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-In a recent issue of the Inquirer a letter appears under the heading " A voice from York" and signed " Caustic," adverting to a complaint which appeared in your columns as to the time kept by Government Officials in York, and rubbing down your paper for giving publicity to so scurrilous a communication, at the same time making use of your contempor- ary in a manner neither creditable to that journal nor the writer. As to our worthy Resi- dent Magistrate, I believe he is ¿everything that "Caustic" makes him, and I fail to see wherein A. B. has made him the reverse. Perhaps M Caustic" would like the world to know that the individual he libels has been his best friend, and has been mainly instrumental in dragging him out of the slough of despond from which he has so re- cently emerged, and restoring him to a posi- tion in society ; that at the particular period he mentions, he was a constant attendant npon the so-called va...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 15, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

The Western Australian Times SOLUM NON MOTAT GENUS FRIDAY. OCTOBER 15, 1875. WE are no advocates of sensationalism nor are we desirous of disseminating startling exaggerations, but certain facts which we published under the title of " A Sad Case," in our last issue seem to us to call for more than ordinary at- tention and investigation. By referring to our report it will be seen, that a wotran named Mary SCOTT died at Bun- bury on the 25th of September last, under peculiar circumstances and with- out medical attendance. The matter, coming to the ears of the resident authori- ties, a post mortem examination of the body was ordered to be held, which was ac- cordingly done by Dr. LOVEGROVE. At an inquest held on the body startling and deplorable facts were brought to light. The deceased with her husband   and son arrived at Bunbury on the 24th August last, for the purpose of consult- ing Dr. SAMPSON in reference to an ill- ness from which the deceased was then suffering.

NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 October 1875

NEWCASTLE. (From our own Correspondent.)   I much regret to say that there is to be no Agricultural Ball at Newcastle this year io eonsequenee of a large portion of the Settlers having decided upon an independent Ball of their own on the same evening as the Agricul- tural Ball would have taken place. I do not pretend to account for this schism, and merely remark that anything which may have been the cause of breaking np our annual Agricul. tural Ball is much to be regretted. These re- unions have given much pleasure to all classes ot the settlers for several years past, and if want of tact and management have occasioned a rupture, I can only say that it isa great pity. On Monday last, the 11th instant, the Resident Magistrate, Newcastle, received the following requisition. Sir,-We, the undersigned, beg most respectfully to request you will convene a public meeting to be held at the Newcaste Court House on Saturday the 16th October next, at 3 o'clock for the consideratio...

CORRESPONDENCE. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, Sir,-Your Northam correspondent in Your issue of the 5th gives what purports to be a report of the Governor's speech at the dinner given to His Excellency by the settlers of that district and makes him say that a railway to the Eastern districts would cost a million and a half of money. His Excellency had been speak- ing of that "dream of the future"-a railway from Perth to Albany, passing through or by the valley of the Avon, and it was to that undertaking that His Excellency's estimate applied. A railway to the Eastern districts, that is from Guildford to York through New- castle and Northam, would cost, according to the plans and estimate which have been already prepared and presented to the Legislative Council.fsomewhat over £400,000; to Albany, allowing for necessary detours, it would pro- bably not cost less than the sum named by His Excellency. lam Sir, Yours truly, MALCOLM FRASER.

BEHN, MEYER & CO'S. REPORT FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA. (Singapore, 11th September, 1875.) AUSTRALIAN PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 19 October 1875

BEHN, MEYER & CO'S. REPORT FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA. (Singapore, 11th September, 1875.) AUSTRALIAN PRODUCE. Our last report was dated 14th August. SANDALWOOD.-Just before close of last Mail, the entire stock of our market has been cleared at 3-50 dol. per pel., but the scarcity of steam tonnage has prevented our buyers to forward the wood to Ohina, and with the large quantities not yet shipped, the demand for sandalwood has been quiet during the past four weeks. For good and large wood, there is however continually a fair demand at about last prices, viz. 3-45 dol. at 3-50 dol. for large wood, and 3-35 dol. for medium sized wood. The only arrivals we have to report are the " Sea Ripple" and the "Macquarie," the greater part of the sandalwood received by those vessels is of an inferior quality, for which, no offers could be obtained ; the large wood met a ready sale at 3-50 dol. per pel. SANDALWOOD ROOTS are* very dull of sale, and although holders have asked lower prices, there...
