Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 October 1874

'gaeui nub êtnttnl. Rifle Firing.-The silver medal presented by Lieut. Hillman to the best Volunteer shot throughout the annual musketry course of practice was shot for at the final ranges on Saturday last, at the Butts, on Mount Eliza. After a close contest between Sergeant Sholl and Lance Corporal Dean, the former was de- clared the winner. The present medal is a fac-simile of that won by Lieut. Knight last year. It bears on the face of it, the following inscription, surrounded by a wreath :-" M.R. V. Musketry Instruction. Best shot, 1874. Wou by Sergeant Sholl. Presented by Lieut, Hillman." The reverse side has, in relief, the figure of a volunteer rifleman, in uniform, kneeling in the act of firing, with the appro priate legend " In Defence " below the figure. It is a very neat specimen of the silversmith's art. Flower Stealing.-Complaints reach u.3 from several suburban amateur gardeners that they grow roses and pansies in front of their premises, according to the direction of ...

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor Acting Chief Justice Hocking and a common jury.) FRIDAY, 8th OCT. The court resumed this morning at ten o'clock. FOBGEET. William Elias Taunton was again placed on his trial, chai-ged with having feloniously forged a summons of the Local Court, Northam, -he being Clerk of that Court-on the 23rd June last. On a second count the prisoner was charged with feloniously issuing the same to one William Rogers, the defendant in a case in which the prisoner was plaintiff. The case was tully reported in our issue of Friday last, when, it wül be in the recollection of our readers, the jury, failing to agree on a verdict, were discharged. A fresh jury was empanelled to-day, and the same evidence was again adduced. The foreman of the jury, after deliberating for half an hour, returned into court and inti- mated there was not the remotest chance of their agreeing upon a verdict. His Honor, however, declined to dismiss them in so short a time, and...

THE COLOSSEUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

THE COLOSSEUM. Several things of interest have recently been discovered in the excavations that are now being made in the Colosseum. The large cor- ridor that leads from the lowest level of the amphitheatre under the main entry in the dir- ection of the Lateran has been cleared of earth for twenty yards beyond the external circum- ference of the building. Here was áiscovered a flight ot stairs, much mutilated, leading from the corridor up to the right towards the Caelian. Signor Eosa thinks the stairs were used by those engaged in the representations to gain access, unobserved by the spectators, to the lower parts, or " green room," of the amphi- theatre. In the vast mass of earth and rubble which has hitherto filled up these substructions there is a large proportion of fragments of the building itself, from which many interesting inscriptions, besides columns, statues, and architectural ornaments can be recomposed, and it is the intention of Signor Rosa to j-esfpre with these actua...

We purpose, as soon' as we may, to redeem the promise made in our first number, and to direct the attention of our readers, not only to social subjects, but to those connected with art and literature; but everything must have its day, and it has been nece»sary hitherto to give almost entire attention to the treat political question which has beeu before th¿ people.

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

NOTES ON .R.TispmsrsTRr.R aíWEn? apiti? wr AULUBA VA1WAJJUU \M\y » UAVj.1 lU.JUii.1 Al (Concluded.} v--/ The Civil List of the Crown, under the Imperial Constitution, differs from a Colonial Civil List in the object for which it is granted. In the one case it is for the maintenance of the dignity of the Crown, and the personal expenditure of the Sovereign ; in the other, for the payment of those officers who represent the Crown in the colony, the Govjbbnob, the Judges, vnd the Executive. There is, however, a similarity in the origin of both which must not be over- looked. Formerly the Crown received the proceeds of certain taxes and had entire control of the Crown estates, and under the arrangements made when William III was called to assume the Government of Great Britain, under the Act of Settlement, which asserted the theory enunciated by Lïooker, viz., " an " original contract between the king and " the people," as the basis of that ar- rangement j this was confirmed ; but in th...

PERTH POLICE COURT SATURDAY, OCT. 10. Before E.W. Landor, Esq., P.M. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

PTCtt.TFT Píir.TnR nOTTRT Saturday, Oct. 10. . Before E. W. Landor, Esq.., P.M. James McCaffrey, a youth apparently of about l8 years of age, was brought up charged with having on numerous occasions assaulted his mother, by striking her upon the head with a stick. His Worship observed it was most disgraceful to see a lad of his age appear to auswer such a complaint ; that it was his duty to protect and aid his aged parent, if in need. As the complainant did not appear he would be discharged; but if brought again before the Court on a similar charge, he would be liable to be sent to prison for two months, with hard labor. John Goddard, charged with being drunk and incapable, admitted the fact, but, suffering from severe pains in various parts of his body, he was recommended to get jolly well drunk, and he was now happy to state to the Bench all his pains had left, and he was perfectly cured. Fined 5s, or 7 days, imprisonment. The fine was paid. John Gallop appeared in answer to a sum...

ESCAPE OF MARSHAL BAZAINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

ESCAPE OF MARSHAL BAZAINE. Early on August 11 a rumour got into circulation that ex-Marshal Bazaine had escaped from the Island of S te. Margu gerite. The report proved true, and the Cologne Gazette gave the following pai' ticulars of the ex-marshal's escape as de- rived from himself : " From his sitting-room the prisoner was obliged, in order to arrive at the terrace (his promenade), to pass a bridge, and to descend some steps at the end of it. The bridge was enclosed by walls on both sides, on one of which stood the guard. - A tent-roof was spread over the bridge to keep off the rays of the sun, which also concealed from those stand- ing at the foot of the steps the persons on the bridge. On the south-eastern point of the island, which has a steep descent into-the sea, the marshal had arranged a little kitchen-garden, in which he worked much and watered his beans. There his flight was to be ef- fected. On a far projecting part of this garden the marshal discovered one day ¡ that a...

NEWS BY EUROPEAN MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

NEWS BY EUROPEAN MAIL. The more interesting items of news received to this date, in the absence of telegrams, are briefly as follows : Particulars of the escape of Marshal Bazaine, which we give in full in another column. In France, Marshal McMahon has concluded what might be well called a royal progress through the north. The Assembly before its prorogation, negatived the proposed income tax and that on French rentes, so the deficit on the budget has yet to be provided for. The authorities have, at last, exerted themselves to prevent the passage of munitions of war, across the frontier into Spain. The Paris agencies for betting on horse races have been subjected to fines of various amounts ; M. Oller notably to one of 5000 francs. The Republican members of the As- sembly are preparing for 6erious opposi- tion to the existing ministry on its re- assembling. The German papers are occupied principally with the ceremony of the con- firmation of the eldest son of the Crown Prince, at wh...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 October 1874

&(fXXtz$ovihevLtt* TO THE EDITOB. Sir,-Poor Mr. Lee Steere seems very irate that you did not insert some letter which he addressed you, and being apparently at a loss for argument, has the usual resort in such cases, of " call- ing names." I suppose you had some reason for not inserting his letter,-at least I recollect seeing an editorial no- tice stating that if Mr. Steere would per- mit the exclusion of some objectionable matter, you would give the letter inser- tion. Perhaps the letter in question had the defect I have above alluded to, and was compensated for by a like resort to that noticed. Whether Mr. Steere*s solution of the authorship of the letter signed " Jason" be correct, or not, has nothing to do with the subject. He should know that political letters are always, or nearly so, published under a nom-de-phtme, and that so long as the contents have reference only to purely political matters, the in- cognito is never disturbed. I will defy any person to point out a...
