BANKRUPTCY versus FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 May 1867

-BALN.KURPTCY versus FRtGAUD.1 T"i' time is fast approaching when the liegislative Council will once more assem ble for the transaction of business. Such ,as will have to be gone through belong ing. to the general governance of the colony, will doubtless be marked out by SGovernor Hampton and his legal ad - visers; to them, therefore, may safely be leftrhe preparation of the programme that will be presented for the considera tion of the Members in June next. The Council has other duties, however, 'than the mere passing into law the few measures which may be initiated by the Sgovernment; and some of those duties are the careful consideration of measures ' introduced by individual Members. -Of these, by far the most important matter :to be discusse& duriang the approaching session, is an alteration in the Insolvency law, as it at. present operates in this .colony-whether by the introduction of a totally new act, an amendment of the old one, or a different system upon which to ...

Right again ? Well, then, he must have observed that neat white cot tage, in the middle of its trim garden. He has seen it a hundred times; he knows all about its gravelled foothpath, with its clipped box borders, leading from the green gate to a greener front door, re splendent with its brass knob, and brass knocker; both polished as bright as whiting and bath-brick can make them? He has noted the geraniums, too, in the window of said cottage. He remembers perfectly well, when he had been dining one day with Spriggins, who lives just opposite, standing at the window with Clara Spriggins, and thinking how hand some she looked while plucking the leaves off a magnificent fucia; he remembers all this, and how he t...

OBEYING ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 May 1867

OBEYING ORDERS.-" Take this dirty fellow out of the ranks, and lave him in the waters of the Guadiana," said a grandiloquent colonel during the Peninsular war. After some time the corporal assigned to the wash returned. " What have you done with the man I sent with you ?" inquired the colonel. Up flew the corporal's right hand across the peak of his cap-" Sure an't plaise y'r honnur, and didn't y'r honnur tell me to lave him in the river, and sure enough I left in the river, and there he is now, according to y'r honnur's orders."

THE TRAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 May 1867

THE TRAMP. Some years ago having taken my degree at Oxford as B. A., and feeling no calling for the Church, conscious that I had not sufficient as surance for the bar, and with an academic con tempt for Commercial pursuits, I fancied that there was a good opening, for one who had taken a first class, in the Australian colonies. Full of hope, but with scanty means, and having received the blessing of a poorly en dowed, and unworldly parent, who out of a pit tance, coming to him as vicar of an opulent parish, the rectorial tithes of which, swelled the ducal revenues of a princely house, I started to fight the battle of life-and found myself in the midst of a population, all of whom were rushing to the new found El Doradoes of the colony. After hopelessly trying to obtain a situation, in despair I resolved toaccompany. an A. B. of Cambridge. The one stockedt with Logics, the other with Mathematics, re- ? presentatives of Aristotle and Euclid, we trudged along, with sad and heavy hearts...

THE BURGLARY AT FAUSTEL EVERSLEIGH. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 4 May 1867

THE BURGLARY AT FAUSTEL EVERSLEIGH. (From London Sooiety. There was a soft undertone in Jack's voice when he made this remark, and he glanced as he spoke towards that silent figure, sitting in the farthest of the deep old windows with the gentle evening light falling softly on its bending head. Amidst all the bustle and occupation of the last few 'days Jack had not forgotten to notice how pale and silent Lucy Gres ham had been, nor how the innocent brown eyes had worn a scared and bewil dered look very foreign to their usual tranquil tenderness. 'It was natural enough, that-she was such a gentle, tender little thing--not a bit stout-hearted, nor strong-minded (none the less charming for the want, though), and, of course, her nerves had been shaken by what had happened.' Captain Eversleigh was thinking some thing like this, as he walked over towards the window where Lucy had sat silent so long, meaning, when he reached her, to say something soothing and sympathizing, only, startled a...

THE TRAMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 May 1867

THl TRAMP. It is impossible to analyze one's feelings at a moment like that. For an instant I had a confused notion that we were all going to be executed on the spot and that the assailants were bushrangers; that they were native-police,. having an instiuctive preference for anthropo phagy; that in some inscrutable way I was a genuine criminal only that moment found out, and I began to wonder for which particu lar delinquency I was about to suffer. But I soon discovered that though under the obligation of considering myself for the time being a prisoner, it was only as a possible particeps criminis, and that I was not, at any rate, the chief malefactor. The utmost extent of crime that could be proved against any one of us was bulloek stealing and as the rnens conscia recti became on a sudden very strong within me, I did not imme diately fall into convulsions of despair. Never theless, the novelty of the situation produced a feeling of an indescriable kind. The accident of my being e...

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 9. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 May 1867

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA, JOT 9. 'Miss Jenkins passed her mornings, in summer time, in her little garden, look ing after the flowers, and scolding her ser yvants; and in winter, when the cold kept her within doors, she sat at the window watching the move ments of her neighbors, which occupation was varied by watching, and scolding the servant girls. This last was what prin ters call a , standing job," that is, it never varied, but gave her constant em ployment, both summer and winter, whe~a ever she had nothing better to do-which was not very often. The butcher's and baker's boys were other- constant sources of annoyance to her. She could change her servants whenever they displeased her; but she had no control over the baker's boy. He was a wicked young urchin, who knew Miss Arabella's idiosyncracy, and used his knowledge for his own amusement, He would walk up to the hous~e as de murely as a young kitten when she hap pened to be in tile way; but, so surely as she turned away her...

BANKRUPTCY versus FRAUD. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 May 1867

BANKRUPTOCY ersus FRAUD. ----0--- THERE can be no doubt that the disgrace ful facility, with which a bankrupt is allowed to selip through the Insolvent Court, in Western Australia, is a fruitful source of fraud. Ban1.rupts there must aiways be, iet the laws be made. ever so stringent; but there would certainly be, under onditions less favorable to rpg'ery, fewer rogues. Without entering into the merits of the exist~ing act too .minutely, it may be fairly assumed that, if properly handled, it would afford greater protecti.n to the creditor, and less encouragement to the rogue, than at present. Where the fault lies, however-whether with the ccurt, or the creditors, or with both together, those who have watched its operation for the longest period are best able tq determine. It has hitherto been the practice, whlen ever a'man, either from iuability or dis inclinatibn to pay his debts, has declared himself to be insolvent, to call a meeting of creditors; when much squabbling, and very l...
