A REMONSTRANCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 25 August 1882

A REMONSTRANCE. TO THE EDITOB. SiR,-In The Inquirer of the 28th last June there appearing a letter signed ' Equity.' That letter has brought against an old settler ab Donsrarra a strong volley of invective, and for no cause but the mere surmise that he was the writer of the letter in question. So much for the ' magisterial capacity' of our own worthy J.P.s. I have perused the letter signed 'Equity' and would most willingly endorse the contents of that epistle, and I have no doubt but I could obtain the signatures of a largo majority of the settlers who would do likewise, but as a most unworthy document was recently carried round the district by Mr. F. Moore, and obtained the signatures of many, I would soon be told that the people here would sign anything. And now we must leave the matter of supplying this district with an efficient resident officer to the generosity of the Government under which we live, and surely a district -which has been established for 30 years, with numerous ...

CONCERT AT GOVERNMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 25 August 1882

CONCERT AT GOVERNMENT HOUSE. The Lady Patroness of the Dorcas Society, and the Ladies of her circle, under whose auspices the Concert in aid of the Society was given last evening, are to be thanked for the enjoyable treat that was given to a large number of the music-lov ing portion of the residents in the city and its vicinity. Apart from the fact that the Concert was to be given in the ball room of Government House, and that Lady Robinson, Lady Gifford and other ladies would take part in it — a sufficient attrac tion in itself — there was quite a rush for tickets when it became known that Mr. Onslow would contribute some music, and that Mr. Needham would lead. The time chosen was most opportune. This may be termed 'the Season.' The members of the Legislature combine pleasure with the labors of the Council, and their visit is made the occasion for a round of dinner parties, balls, and amateur theatricals. Anything in the shape of amusement is therefore patronised, and the object fo...

The Daily News. THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 25 August 1882

THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 1882. Notwithstanding the fact that this is a Crown Colony, in which, the Administration is vested with, plenary powers, it is quite certain that the Home Government will not permit their abuse. It would serve no useful purpose to hold up to view now the conduct of certain members   of the late Administration, but for one, reason, that— while the Secretary   of State will support and maintain the just acts of an Administration,   and protect it against undue pressure —he is ready to show his " disap-   proval" of measures calculated to injure and endamage the interests of the colony. It will be in the recollect- tion of our readers that, the ORD Administration sold to Messrs. McDonald & Co. a certain quantity of guano without reserving sufficient to satisfy the claims of Messrs. BEAVER & Co., who were licensed to remove guano from the Lacepede Islands. Through the default of the Government six v...

SATURdTy,~AU(TuSt' 2671882.'''' The breakdown of the motive power of a railway so as entirely to suspend - traffic is a serious inconvenience. The interests of the service recmire. and the public have a right to expect, that the 'management of our railways should be efficient in every respect. We are aware that the Commissioner of Railways has had many difficulties to contend .against ; he has had an untutored staff to deal with, and obstacles, inherent in every new under taking, to overcome. 'We have not space at present to enter into the merits or demerits of the case, but the public have been very anxious to know the result of the official enquiry instituted by the Governor as to » the cause of the suspension of traffic on the Eastern Railway, and as the re port of the Commission, together wi4 the correspondence on the questijff, have been placed upon the table of the House, we are glad to be in a position to give such particulars as our space to-day will permit.

The Daily News. MONDAY, AUGUST 28, 1882. [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 28 August 1882

. MONDAY, AUGUST 2S, 1882. Thekb is a general feeling in !Fre mantle that the - sum of ^!10,000 proposed to! be expended in jetty accommodation, will be money thrown away, if it is intended to lengthen the present jetty. The smaller vessels discharge at this jetty in fine weather, but as the berthage is not available for vessels drawing more than 10. feet, and it is subject to frequent interruption through breaks in the weather, it is altogether useless. The object the Government have in. view is to procure such accommoda tion as will allow vessels of greater tonnage, such as the London wool ships, to come alongside and discharge their cargo into the- railway trucks. It is said that this cannot be done by extending the present jetty, since there is not sufficient, depth of water. Sir John Coode, in. his Report on Harbour Improvements at Fremantle, is of opinion that the cost of construct ing an open piled jetty for the use of. the' largest ' class of 'vessels- would .hardly -.justif...

BY TELEGRAPH AND OTHERWISE. It has been decided by a 'Victorian Court that hotel-keepers cannot recover for drinks supplied to lodgers, except the drinks were supplied at the lodgers' meals. A man named Thomas Cupitt was stuck up by three bushrangers near Adelong, N.S.W. They tied him to a tree, gagged him, and robbed him of .£45, leaving him in that condition. Garibaldi died with the window of his room wide open, while the sun was setting behind Corsica. Before the last agony began a bird alighted, twittering, on the window-sill. Garibaldi saw it and stammer ed. ' Quantoib allegro' ('Howjoyfulitis.') The government has instructed the Agent Genera! by the out-going mail to purchase large guns and other requisites for the defence of the colony of Victoria.

The Daily News. TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1882 [Newspaper Article] — The Daily News — 29 August 1882

TUESDAY, AUGUST 29, 1832. The Municipal Councils are re sponsible for gross negligence in regard to sanitation. The want of a proper system of sewage disposal in the two chief towns of the colony has been continiially brought to the notice of the public since 1875, and yet nothing effectual has been done. The Inspector of Nuisances recently in his Report to the City Council, Bpoke in strong terms on this subject, and drew the attention of the Council to the immediate necessity that arose for getting rid of the sewage. The Colonial Surgeon, in his Report ? on. the health of the colony for the past year, again draws attention to the necessity that exists for the adoption of a system of public scavenging. Although this essential requisite has been commented upon every year during the past seven or eight years, the municipalities have taken no practical steps to carry out a proper system of sewage disposal, and the alleged reason is 'an indisposition to increase the . rates on household...
