GREENOUGH. From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 October 1874

GREENOUGH. From a Correspondent. The election for the Greenough, as antici- pated, has been a walk over tor our late and now present member, Mr. Crowther, who takes Responsible Government as his platform, and at the complimentary dinner given some days since was so unmistakeably plain in explaining his views and future action if sent back to Council. Should any of the electors hold op- posite views, they have nj excuse, after Mr. Crowthers speech, for nob bringing out their man to contest the seat. Wednesday morning, the 29th, opened with rain, and a dull, heavy sky, which made the hearts of the farmers rejoice, as it was the weather wanted. From about 9 to 10 in the morning the settlers could be seen wending their way to the Court House, to pay the com- pliment of appearing on the day of election, although it was well known there was no op- position. At 10 o'clock a good number had collected at the Court House, when the Resi- dent read tbe warrant, Mr. F. W. Pearson then addressed ...

C0MPULSORY EDUCATION. Our doubts are traitors, And make us lose the good we oft might win By fearing to attempt. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 October 1874

C0MPTJLSÖBY EDUCATION. . Our.doubts are traitors, ' And maka us lose the good we oft might win By fearing to attempt. ; _ TO THE EDITOB." - Sir,-You will oblige if you find a «omer in your journal. Your contemporaries have no room, or they think it trash. As I replied to one Osliarias and Somnamblisfc and my replies no doubt went into the basket below the Editors table. First Osliarius is afraid of the compulsory clause, and 2nd Somnambulist says. " Bat I fear they are slightly in want of pluck for such an even*;, and too subservient to their august guardians the various Boards. Perhaps he is measuring others by his standard I am a rural teacher myself, and am prepared to meet any t sacher in the colony, and I shall be able to prove with facts what our Hon. C. Secretary said on the Bill. " The payment by result system was in fact to induce teachers to exertion". I could say more on the subject, but at present left alone no doubt will be best. But I will say if the Local Boards do no...

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Acting Chief Justice). Wednesday, Oct. 7th. The usual quarterly sittings of the Supreme Court in its criminal jurisdiction were held this week, commencing on Wednesday. BIGAMY. Susannah Meiklin answered to her re- cognizance and pleaded guilty to an indictment; charging ker with having, at Fremantle, on the 16th January last, feloniously andr unlawfully married one Francis Fish, her former husband Roger Meiklin being at the time alive, Mr. Howell, under whose advice ihe prisoner had pleaded guilty, stated to the Court the circumstances under which the offence had been committed. It appeals that the woman, who was married to Meiklin on the 14th December 1867, obtained a " protection order" against him, as he was squandering away her property and her earnings. Meiklin then lett the colony, and went to Melbourne, and the prisoner got married to' Fish, laboring ondei the erroneous impression that, under the protection order she had ...

PERTH HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 October 1874

PERTH HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. A general meeting of the members of this Society was held in the Town Hall on the 21sb September, in order to make arrangements for holding the usual spring Show. After some little discussion as to whether on'account of the lateness of the season, the usual day, viz., 21st Oct. was not too early for the exhibition, it was decided to hold it on that day. A programme was then arranged, which it is hoped will be approved by the public. As will be seen by the advertisement in the papers, the floral department has been wholly rearranged so as to allow of small growers exhibiting, as at former shows it was always a subject of com- plaint that an exhibitor showing 12 geranuims or fuschias, as the case might bf>, was given a prize, against one who had 6 only, but probably of better varie- ties. Under the present arrangement an exhibitor is restricted to a certain number; should he have 6 plants, he has only to compete against 6. It will also be seen that in m...

NEWCASTLE, From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 October 1874

NEWCASTLE, From a Correspondent. Since I last wrote to you we have had what everyone was praying for, a good shower of rain, which was much needed, and will do a great amount of good to the growing crops. For the last week or so the weather has been unusually sultry for the time of the year, and though an old resident in the district, I never remember having seen the river so low during the winter months. As I mentioned in my last, the New- castle Mechanics' Hall is now finished. It has no prétentions, to architectural beauty, and a stranger would be apt to mistake it for a Meeting House. It might also have been a little larger, and indeed such is the general opinion ; but any way it will be of great advan- tage, and will no doubt be the means of caus- ing some to become members who would other- wise stand aloof. It was opened with a public ball on Wednesday last, which was very well attended, and at which everyone seemed to enjoy themselves immensely. The president and vice-pieside...

C orrespondence                           TO THE EDITOR. Dear Sir,-On Monday evening last, whilst sitting at my door, I was started by an unusual noise, which came nearer and nearer, till presently a man was seen running and shout- ing as loud as he could. It being dark, and thinking perhaps that something serious had happened; I ran to stop him, when lo ! who should it be but the Church of England Minister, Rev. J. Withers, proclaiming the result of-the Vasse election.       Now I think (as many others do) that such an exhibition ill becomes the cloth, and that the Bishop, if he has any authority, should exercise it in such a case.

©lie (íikstmi ^ttstraltiui ©unes. SOLUM KON MUTAT GENOS. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13, 18/4. As the letter of Lord Grey io Mr. Parkes, which has been referred lo so often of late, has been the source of all the suggestions which have been mude, for tiie novel experiment of carrying on Responsible Government with one Cham- ber only, vie think it well to take this opportunity of placing before our readers the text ol'that document; for as much j lias been said, no doubt, much will be said again, ou that subject, both within and without our Législative Council. It is oí' course at the best, but the opin- ion of one man, and however highly we may esteem that opinion on his account, Ave mubt not forget that it is, on his own shewing, in opposition to that of all other statesmen, and that it would there- fore, to say the least, be very rash to try such an experiment. It seems moreover to have been very generally overlooked, that Lord Grey doubts the efficiency of au Upper House elected by the peop...

EARL GREY ON THE QUESTION OF AN UPPER CHAMBER. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) London, May 4, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 October 1874

EARL GREY ON THE QUESTION OE AN UPPER CHAMBER. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.") London, May 4, 1874. Sir,-On hearing from, you some months ago that you had not been able to obtain in New South Wales a copy of my "Essay on Parliamentary Govern- ment," I informed you that ii on my ar- rival in London I found that I had one to spare, I would send it to you. Ac- cordingly, 1 beg now to forward you the accompanying volume ; and I have to re- quest that when you have looked at it (if you can find time to do so) you will be good enough to present it in my name to the library of the Legislature. Though it is 10 years since this essay was pub- lished, and great changes have in that time taken place in the colonies, I ven- ture to think that it contains some ob- servations which may still be found not altogether unworthy of your attention, and of that of the members of the Legis- lature, with reference to the question as to the expediency of altering the consti- tution oí the Legislative Co...

TOODYAY. FROM A CORRESPOSDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 October 1874

TOODYAY. FROM A COltRESPOSDENT. The agricultural and pastoral thermometer of interest marks a descending column on the index of prosperity ; a very indifferent lambiug (iu some instances attributable in no small degree to £ want of proper care and attention on the part of the shepherds), partially allevi- ated by an exceedingly good average clip of wool, w hich together with the increased ad- vance of a penny to three half-pence per lb. in the home market, may be said to have counterpoised the paucity of lambs. The corn grower, unfortunately, has not this consolation to fall back on. Day after day,, and week has succeeded week, and still bright, hot, sunny days, no rain of consequence having ¿allen, at this most critical period of the year, for some considerable time, the ground hard as a stone, and quite as dry as a bone, gives premonitary symptoms of a scanty and unprofitable harvest. As for the uphill hay crop, that is ruined; not one-fourth of the weight of hay will be cut as la...
