SOUTH AUSTRALIA AND THE FEDERAL MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

SOOTH AUSTRALIA AND THE I ED ERAL MOVEMENT. -» THE South. Australian Obseder thus excuses its colony for not joining the Federal movement :-" The Government have come to the conclusion that " dis- cretion is the better part ? f valour," and have decided to postpone the considera- tion of the Federal Enabling Bill until next session. They have thus saved the measure from an inglorious defeat, and no one will now be able to say that it was rejected^ ^Whether it will really be introduced again next session is open to question, but at any rate our Victorian neighbours do not intend to wait until we ara prepared to join them. They have amended their Bill in such a way that the adhession of South Australia is ' not a necessary precedent to their repre- sentation at the Council. It is not to be wondered at that there is a little soreness over the Border at the fate of the Bill ia this colony. Those who have assumed to represent South Australian feeling in Conferences and negotiations with ...

PERTH LITERARY SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 19 December 1885

PERTH LITERARY SOCIETY. --? THE Perth Literary Society met as usual on Monday evening and the very fair at- tendance of members and friends enjoyed an intellectual treat in listening to the Rev. G-. Rutherford's paper on "Wüliam the Silent." Succeeding to a princely position and to large wealth at avery early ago, William of Orange found him- self a great favourite st the Court of the Emperor Citarles V, and being a youth of remarkable powers became both the.com mander of armies in the field and a diplo- matist of note while yet in his nonage. His career was traced by the lecturer to its turning point, when his discreet con- duct on leo ming from the King of France the plot between that monarch and the bigoted Philip of Spain, for the extermina- tion of all the " heretics"' procured for him the appellation of "the Silent." The occasion made the man for William of Orange, although himself a Catholic at that time, and knowing well the enor- mous strength of those who would I oppose hi...

His friend Smith bad only a hutkeeper in those days, and a black gin made the beds in a rough sort of fashion, and sometimes, though rarely, swept the floor. It was all new to Citizen Hideout, and very disagreeable, and the. ways of that black gin were simply abominable. Going ink) his room one morn- ing he saw her eyeing his tootbrush in a critical manner, which immediately raised, his suspicion, and he exclaimed peremptorily : "Hi, here, you blackjwoman," don't you touch that." .

DEAR SIR,-Under the above heading an Article appeared in last Friday's Weet Australian. After discussing in a very calm and dispassionate spirit the relative and common interests of the Settlers and the Mission, it closed thus. " We sincerely trust, therefore, that the settlers will act with moderation and tlie missioner with kindly tact, and in a broad spirit of sympathetic charity for both bloch and white." The Mission Committee hare been very solicitous that there should not only be in the first place a constant regard upon the part of the Missionary to those wants of our own race which his profes- sion is designed to supply, but a kindly and ever watchful observance of the settlers' "rights." It is unhappily too much in accordance with the commence- ment of Missionary efforts among a ...
