LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. London, Dec. 19. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. London, Dec. 19. Persia is sending a mission to the European Powers to protest against the threatened en- croachment by Bussia beyond the river Atark upon the Persian territory. Another plot to destroy the Czar has been {discovered at Moscow. The Emperor received a letter stating that the Winter Palace would be destroyed, if he did not establish a National Assembly. After- wards a man was arrested in lodgings close to the Palace, who had in his possession 15,000 copies of a Nihilist proclamation, several re- volvers, explosive materials, electric batteries, and a plan of the Palace. Several accomplices also were arrested. The floods in Hungary continue. Several villages have been destroyed. Ten thousand people have been rendered homeless, and a hundred are missing. Troops have beea sent [ to the assistance of the people, and the Govern- ment are relieving them. Boubat, Dec. 12.

OUR PASTOBAL LAND REGULATIONS TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

OUB PASTOBAL LAND REGULATIONS To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-I should be 'glad if you would allow me a little space in your next issue, for a few remarks upon Mr. Bernard Clarkson's commu- nication and upon sundry articles which have lately appeared in one of your contemporaries with regard to our Pastoral Land Regulations. I agree with Mr. Clarkson to a certain ex- tent in what he has said, and entirely agree with him as to the thorough ignorance of the subject which the articles upon which he com- ments display; and yet there is a certain amount of truth underlying this ignorance, which the writers have somehow picked up, although this truth is obscured by their palp- able blunders. It is but fair to allow that the hazy idea your contemporary has got hold of as to our not making as much as we should do out of our land has some foundation in fact. (I leave the Northern lands out of consideration alto- gether at present, they are exceptional.) It is certainly true that l...

EXPEDITIOUS BRANDING. (FROM THE QUEENSLANDER.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

EXPEDITIOUS BRANDING. (From the Queenslander.) Dear Queenslander,-I have been read- ing with interest your correspondent " O.'s" letters on stockkeeping, and have been wish- ing that some of your correspondents would give us a little information on the branding of calves ; but as none has appeared I don't think it would be out of place to give you some hints on the subject, or how to make brand- ing* easy. A short time ago I had to visit a cattle station (Rockwood) on the Landsbor- ough, for the purpose of mustering our strag- glers. The said station having gained a re- putation for fast branding, I thought it would be a good opportunity of judging of the time in which calves were said to be branded and cut ; I, as well as a good many more, always discrediting the statement that calves could be branded properly in the time-namely one a minute. I shall now give you an account of what I saw done there. We mustered the first camp,' bringing home 231 calves, big and . little*j fust a ni...

The Orient's sailing time from England to Ade- laide was little over 3d days. She sailed for Melbourne yesternight. Telegrams have been sent by the Postmaster General, to England, suggesting an alteration in the new ' P. & O.' Time Table so as to avoid calling at Adelaide on Sundays. London, Dec. 12th.

Ladies Column. FEMALE TEACHERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

yûW Column. FEMALE TEACHERS. To the-Editor of the West Australian. Sid,-I do not know what is your opinion, but I am a strong advocate for female teach- ers, especially in mixed schools ; and mixed schools are the majority in the country. The reason of my preference is one which must commend itself to all right-thinking persons. It is this: the interest of morality, generelly speaking, are likely to be in safer hands. It should never be forgotten in the appointment of a teacher, that children are sure to look up to him as a model in conduct as well as in knowledge. Besides, a lady will be able to teach young girls what will be no less, and perhaps more, useful to them than the three R's-that is, needle or fancy work. I think that the Inspector of Schools bears testimony to .the regularity and moral tone prevailing in'schools conducted by women. Being convinced of the advantages here simply touched upon, I could never see the reason why, under our Elementary Educa- tion Act, schoolmi...

WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH OUR GIRLS? TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH OTJE GIRLS? To THE EDITOB. Sir,-I have no desire to encroach upon your ' Ladies Column,' but the question has often been raised both in Australia and the mother country as to what we shall do with our girls 1 I never had a superfluity of girls myself, and am never likely to have, so that I may, I think, speak quite disinterestedly on the subject. After carefully considering the question in all its bearings from a purely disinterested point of view, I have come to the conclusion that out here in Western Aus- tralia, at all events, the best way to get rid of girls who hang on hand is to start a board- ing house, and take in young single-men lodgers. That will get rid of the girls, if they are any good, for a dead certainty, and under the most favourable circumstances. The modus operandi, as the lawyers say, is a very easy and simple one. Get your young single men, let it rest with the " girls " to make them nice and comfortable, as far as circumstances-the circum...

THE "HEBALD" ON THE LAND QUESTION. j To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-Your contemporary the Herald in its issue of Dec. 13th, criticises a letter appearing in your columns from Mr. B. D. Clarkson, and tiie comments of your contemporary impel me to make a few remarks thereon. The Herald sayB : " Mr. Clarkson appears to have mis-read our articles.He describes us as arguing for the corn farmer against the sheep farmer. Why he does so we cannot tell." It is satisfac- tory to learn that the writer of the leading ar- ticle in tiie Herald of Nov. 8th, did not observe rthe "full meaning of his own words when he S&ySj speaking of the land, " he (the squatter) j*4s aftowed to have as much of it as he pleases ^'foVa-sum which is absolutely nominal-the ''** highest sum required being a farthing an " acre."

Correspondence. MR. BROCKMAN ON THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

ekropukiwe. ME. BROCKMAN ON THE LAND QUES- TION. To the Editor of the West Australian-. Deas Sib,-Having been requested to give the public my ideas relative to the land qu3s -tion, I would ask for space to say a few words upon the subject in the West Australian. I have always been of opinion that a much larger revenue is obtainable from the disposal of Sie Crown lands of the colony, than has yet been derived from them. I do not think that any alteration is required with regard to lands; leased for agricultural purposes ; I think it ia very desirable that farmers should have their land on easy terms, but it is with the land leased for pastoral purposes that I should wish to deal. I consider any land worth holding at all to be worth the amount at present charged. Allowing such to be the case, it becomes at1 once apparent that large blocks of land are now leased at not more than one fifth of their rental value, and for which five times the amount now paid would be readily obtainable^ I...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

OCCASIONAL NOTES. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The question of the relative merits of West- ern Australian jarrah and Victorian red-gum has been occupying the attention of the Mel- bourne journals during the past month, owing to the action of the Harbor and Trusts Depart- ment in having given the preference to our jar- rah. The Melbourne Herald, referring to the subject, says : " We find the discussion upon the utility of redgum as compared with jarrah again being opened, owing to the action taken by the Harbor and Trusts committee in accept- ing tenders for a supply of the latter material for their wharves and jetties. It is now a little over twelve months since the same question, agitated the mind of politicians inside the House, and the public on the outside, and there was then a general concensus of opinion upon the superior merits of the local produc- tion. In an article published by us in August, last year we very conclusively pointed out that the merits of the two woods "were very-simi...

THE' tá %mtxúkxi. ViGiLANS et Audax. PEBTH, FRIDAY, DEC. 19,1879. We noticed some short time ago, one phase of our English system of party Government which has developed of late to such an un- fortunate extent, both at home and in the colonies, as to lead the serious on-looker to feel some misgiving with regard to the re- sult. We mean the habit of mutual recri- mination and invective which is now so lav- ishly indulged in by opposing factions, and which bids fair ere long to seriously lower the whole tone of our political life. Now although this unpleasant feature in modern parliamentary warfare is chiefly due to the daily increasing necessity, as demo- cratic tendencies advance, that the politician seeking office, or anxious to retain it, should win and keep the masses to his side, and is thus obliged ta lay on strong and glaring colours with a coarse brush, in order to rivet their attention, and strike uncultured minds, in a way that painting in soberer and truer tints would not ...

Miss Pallas Eudora Von Blurky She didn't know chicken from turkey,   High Spanish and Greek she could fluently speak,     But her knowledge of poultry was murky.     She could tell the great uncle of Moses, And the dates of the Wars of the Roses,   And the reasons of things--why the Indians wore rings     In their red, aboriginal noses !       Why Shakespeare was wrong in his grammar, And the meaning of Emerson's "Brahma,"   And she went chipping rocks with a little black box   And a small geological hammer !   She had views upon co-education And the principal needs of the nation, And her glasses were blue, and the number she knew     Of the stars in each high constellation.       And she wrote in a h...
