M.R. COMPTON'S FAREWELL CONCERT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

MR. COMPTON'S FAREWELL CONCERT. In leaving the Town Hall on Tuesday evening last, after Mr. Compton's farewell concert, we could not but feel sincere regret that in all probability it was the last time we should have the pleasure of listening to his voice, and of enjoying a musical enter- tainment given under his able direction. His loss will be much felt, and there is cer- tainly no one in the colony at present who can at all take his place. In speaking of the concert we would in the first place specially thank Mr. Compton for a song which was not included in the programme, but which he kindly gave during the inter- val-" My Lady sleeps," which was charm- ingly rendered, and gave us more thorough enjoyment than any other part of the pro- gramme. Mr. Clifton's violin solo also de- serves special mention. We never hear Mr. Clifton play without regretting that circumstances had not enabled him to make music his profession, and to devote his great talents more exclusively to congenial ...

Country Letters. CHAMPION BAY. THE GERALDTON—GREENOUGH ROAD. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 December 1879

Country Letters CHAMPION BAY. The Geraldton-Greenough Road. Many weary months ago, when the improve- ment of the main roads of the colony occupied public attention, and the loan forthis purpose was being negotiated, His Excellency the Gov- ernor paid a visit to this district, returning overland, and thus personally inspecting the main line of road from Geraldton to Perth. Before leaving, His Excellency promised more than once that the two miles of almost im- passable road leading out of Geraldton to the Greenough should be one of the first works un- dertaken as soon as the loan money was avail- able for use. It was pointed out to the Governor that this strip of sand increased the price of carting by 50 per cent above the sum that would be paid were it macadamised like the rest, and that this 50 per cent meant a loss to the producer of at least three pence per bushel. Some time after His Excellency had been here, a Mr. Higman was sent up to inspect and report upon our requirements in...

A WORD IN SEASON [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

A WORD IN SEASON If there is any time during the year when we may appropriately lay aside editorial re- serve, , indulge without stint the human sym- pathies that are in us, turn our thoughts away from the vexed question of. politics, and abandon ourselves to the feelings called us 'by the season, it is surely on the recurrence of Christendom's greatest festival. We-are irresistibly inclined, for the time at least, to bury the tomahawk, light the calumet of peace, and adopt whatever other symbols may be regarded as expressive of goodwill towards all men. At this festive time the sternest disciplinarian banishes the rod of chastisement to a distant closet, and his little flock make merry, even though they know that next week's offences will assuredly evoke their appropriate retribution. Availing our- selves therefore, in imagination of a time honored custom, we heartily shake hands with our many readers, and wish them what we anticipate for ourselves-aright jovial and merry Christmas...

COURTHOPE v. ANDERSON. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-As the " Herald" has inserted a grossly inaccurate report of the above case, which will be in the hands of my friends in the Eastern Districts by tomorrow's mail, will yon allow me the earliest opportuniiy of exposing its unvera? city through your columns ? I do not desire now to go into the details of the case, as I have done so in the letter, which I have sent, under the advice of my solicitor, for publication in the next issue of the Herald. I will now limit myself to saying that I did not charge Mr. Anderson with resisting my attempt to eject him from my private office, bat with assuming a threatening attitude towards me, and avowing his intention of treating me with viol- ence on my own premises. The statement that the'Bench remarked that the charge " need not have been preferred" is the most audacious fabrication 1 ever saw in print. No remark whatever of this kind fell , from the Magistrates. The unmitigated me...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

SPORTING NOTES. Since my last, I have had the opportunity of interviewing most of the animals in train- ing for the coming events, and, on the whole, I must say that I think them a very creditabe lot, should their trainers succeed in bringing them up to the post. But I should like to see more strange horses brought oat. Why do not some of onr well known stud-masters such as the Messrs Burges, Clinch, Macpher- son, Dempster, and several others that I could name, put their shoulders to the wheel rand bring ont two or three apiece. Even should they not win a large stake, they will make a name for their stock in foreign mar- kets. I trust the gentlemen I have named will take this advice and profit by it. Amongst the horses now in work, last year's 'champion Bas-blanc takes my fancy. He looks fresh and "well, albeit |a trifle fleshy; but that defect his trainer thinks he can rectify during the next month. Mr. Hooley'a second string Tarragon is a conundrum at present, and, judging by his ...

CRICKET BUNBURY V. FERGUSON. The day after the show, a cricket match'was played here-Bunbury v. Ferguson. Bunbury side went first to the wickets, and put together 50, that ' old stager ' James Moore proving him- self equal to the occasion by making top score < in both innings. Caporn also made some free hitting, but the remainder appeared to be think- ing of the old saying " every little helps."

The 'erguson men took the wickets against Bell,' who proved himself in very good form by taking three wickets with three consecutive balls in the . first over. _ Hough made highest score ; one fine drive of his gave 5 runs, but in the second innings he was unfortunately caught out before obtaining a run.

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, DEC. 23, 1879. THE FREMANTLE RAILWAY BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

THE tú %mtxûmn. VIQUÍANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, DEC. 23,1879. THE FREMANTLE RAILWAY BRIDGE. THE vexed question of ' round piles ' versus ' squared pdes ' has cropped np again of late, and we fear that there is good ground for much that has been said upon the^subject. Speaking in a general way, jarrah piles have been invariably used, both hero and in the Eastern Colonies, in their natural state, the few exceptions having clearly proved, the wisdom of the rule. The experience of the last fifty years might, w e think, be accepted as a tolerably safe guide when constructions are undertaken in the present. That experi- ence" has, in the case of the Fremantle bridge, been deliberately set .aside, and iwe cannot certainly "feel the least surprise at the ex- pressions' of discontent and even of indigna- tion to which this course of action has given rise. ' -* « Had members of Council during the late session been in possession of the amount of information uponjhis subject which many of th...

OUR LAND REGULATIONS AND AMATEUR CRITICS. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

OUR LAND RÉGULATIONS AND AMATEUR CRITICS. To. THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTBALIAN. S»,-It seems tome that the Herald in its article of the 13th instant, referring to Mr. B. D. Clarkson's letter "lately published in your paper, goes on the assumption that the present leaseholders of Government land have done nothing to improve then: runs, and are totally ignorant of how to manage a sheep-station. Such'suppositions are totally erroneous. On the contrary, several of our sheep-farmers have spent thousands of pounds in solid improve- ments, suchas fencing, well-sinking, making tanks, and erecting expensive and most com Êlete shearing sheas, and this in the face of aving no actual right to the renewal of their leases, and that most of these improvements were effected with money borrowed at heavy interest. Any one acquainted with the country is perfectly well aware that very few of the outside runs have any surface water, and are almost useless until that indispensable adjunct toa sheep or c...

Country Letters. ALBANY, December 16. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

dcÄg getters. ALBANY, December 16. j A Roman Catholic Bazaar was held on Thursday and Friday of last week, in the Court-house, in aid of St. Joseph's building fund. Everything passed off satisfactorily, and a fair amount-between £80 and £90-was realized. The Volunteer Band played vari- ous pieces as an inducement to lovers of music to shell out. Raffles seemed to predominate more than usual, and everything of any value seemed to be disposed of in ibis manner. Some one even proposed starting one for a quantity of posts and rails. This is the first raffle for timber I have ever heard of, in a bazaar, and I fail to see the connection between the two. ' Posts and rails' appeared to be the popular cry, although I could see none on sale, and numbers seemed very anxious to negocíate. I was afterwards informed that it was only '' rail- ings." Rumours were afloat that the new s.S. Orient (Messrs. Green, Anderson & Co.), intended calling here for coals; but as the time for her reachin...

But he never spoke of Meg, and would permit no allusion to her name. Miss Aga- tha, poor soul, had to keep all her sorrows 'to herself. Time did not weaken her re- grets.
