Out Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Headers. THE SPECTRE GUEST. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

te dfeimneg "gool. Tales for Country Headers. ; THE SPECTRE GUEST. (By the late M. R. Mitford.) [Continued.'] The host of the Cross twisted his cap in his hands, and appeared perplexed, as if he had something to say that lay heavy on his heart. The black personage at first did not observe it, but continued to walk up and down the apartment lost in thought. Whenever he came near the host, the latter drew back several steps. "Do you want anything, Sir Host?" said he at last. "Yes; your Grace, I trust, will not take it m ?" " Not in the least. Out with it, man," exclaimed the Spectre Guest, stretching his arm to give the host a friendly slap upon the shoulder. The host, however, augured the worst proceedings from this movement, which he did not appear to understand. He thought, perhaps, that the guest wished to try whether his head were well jointed to his neck, and whether it would be easy to twist, as he had been in the habit of doing, some couple of hundred years ago, with young gir...

It cost me several nights of toil, but I am now prepared to let my lands to as many tenants as choose to apply. Believe me, Sprouts, in matters of business there is nothing like taking time by the forelock. Sprouts-I fear I have been rather dilatory, Sir, but when I have the honour to act as your agent, I will not neglect your interests. Mr. Deputy-Never, my young friend, let your accounts get into arrear. Enter all receipts at the moment in the proper place. It is the surest way to be secure from error and temptation. A neglect of this kind, originating in indolence, leads eventually to confusion, disgrace, and ruin. Sprouts-I shall remember your words, Sir. There is a terrible significance in them that makes me fear to undertake so great a trust. Perhaps the Admiral would make a better stewar...

Greenough Flats. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

Greenough Flats. It is reported that the proposed bridge across the Greenough is not to be erected, but that a causeway of stone and earth is to be built on a sand foundation across the river bed instead. If the causeway is built, it will blockade the river stream, tend to flood thou- sands of acres of agricultural land, and at all times during river flood be dangerous to cross. The general opinion is that, until a bridge is built, the present crossing would be better as it is without a causeway. When Governor Hampton was at this place last year he pro- mised the settlers that the bridge referred to should be commenced as soon as the Chapman bridge should be finished. On the 11th ult., Edward Willis was in Pearson's public-house drinking, in company with a number of men. When Willis was the worse for drink he had a habit of flinging his arms about, although not in a fighting mode. At the time referred to, he walked from his seat in the tap-room up to one James Timlin, and told him h...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

lest fymtxüim %xm$. Discite Justitiar, Moniti. Hear and le just. THURSDAY, JANUARY 14> 1864. The true policy of Commercial enterprise is to please and accommodate the Public. This is the broad view taken by all men who are up1 to the spirit of the times. Nothing illustrates more thoroughly the soundness of this principle than the con- duct of all the great Railway Companies in England. All these Companies, as a rule, lose by their brandies ; yet they all persist in establishing branches, and in maintaining them. Why is this f First because they acknowledge a duty not only to themselves and their shareholders, but also to the Public. The principle by which these great Companies are go- verned is almost a recognized instinct, which impels them to consult public as well as immediate private interests. Whenever the public are obviously neglected for the sake of private gain, a general outcry is raised ; and that outcry is seldom made in vain. But the broad principle, that ultimate su...

THE OPPOSITION TO THE "PROPOSED SUPPLEMENT TO THE LAND REGULATIONS." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

THE OPPOSITION TO THE " PRO- i POSED SUPPLEMENT TO THE ( LAND REGULATIONS." There will no doubt be great variety of opinion on this subject. Some parties suggest one remedy and some another. On the main points, we fancy, all Land- owners, Farmers, and Stock-owners are agreed ; and that these may not be lost sight of, or over-laid by a heap of sug- gestions and amendments, we venture to embody them in a Protest. We do not presume to do more than throw out the idea that this might possibly be the best form of proceeding, as it points out to the Governor the precise subjects of com- plaint (to which, we have no doubt, His Excellency would give full attention), and does not presume to dictate any precise form of action. Nobody likes to be told " we want this, and this we must have." All that is becoming, and all that we believe is necessary, is to point out where and how parties are likely to be injured by any proposed act of legislation ; and then the Government will either abstain fro...

BUTCHERS AND SLAUGHTERHOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 January 1864

BUTCHERS AND SLAUGHTER HOUSES. EVERYBODY complains of the high price of meat to the public, whilst the Imperial Government is -servedj ati 3jd. per lb. The butchers do not wax wealthy, like some of their neighbours, and therefore there must be something wrong in the system-as there is in so many of our well-intentioned acts. Why are there not more butchers 'i While there are only two or three butchers in a town, they usually fall into the hands of two or three graziers, and the meat-market depends upon their united ideas of liberal dealing. One of the chief reasons why there are no more butchers is, because the Government, in its supreme wisdom, has thought proper to 'declare that no butcher shall slaughter within four miles of the extreme boundary-line of a town- site. The butcher's expenses, therefore, are vastly increased by having to keep up two establishments-one, five or six miles distant from the centre of the town, whence he conveys the meat in an open cart through the heavy...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 January 1864

tat %ntxüiKu Filius. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1864. WE gave last week a brief notice of the meeting of the Delegates from the Agri- cultural Societies to discuss the proposed amendments to the Land Regulations. Instead of contenting themselves with this, they have proposed a new code of Regulations, which, like its predecessors, Avili probably be found far from perfect. We last week-embodied, as concisely as practicable, in the shape of a Protest, all the objections which have been so long urged against the Land Regulations of 1860. Those who will take the trouble to compare our protest with the Resolutions given in the present number will perceive that we have overstated the evils. We had always been under the impression that one of the gravest complaints was against the right of strangers to buy up sections in the midst of a run. This, however, is not touched upon in the Resolutions, and therefore we conclude it is no longer one of the evi...

Western Australian Bank. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 January 1864

Western Australian Bank. THE Half-yearly General Meeting of the proprietors of this Bank was held, in Perth, on the 13th instant. Mr. L. S. Leake, being called to the chair, opened the business of the Meet- ing, and read the following Report : Report of the Western Australian Bank, for tlie half-year ending 91st December, 1863. THE Directors have pleasure in again meeting the Shareholders, and in laying before them a statement of the affairs of the Bank to the con- clusion of the past half-year; and are gratified in being able to report that the business of the Bank continues prosperous. It will, however, be seen, from the particulars submitted to the Meeting, that while the profits for the period now under review have been about equal to those of the half-year imme- diately preceding, there has been a diminution in the year's profits as compared with the year ending December, 1862. The business has, nevertheless, been sufficiently remunerative, and your Directors see no reason for ...

ewe <fl$tauttg 'gaak Tales for Country Headers. THE SPECTRE GUEST. (By Hie late M. R. MITFORD.) [Concluded/] MINNA answered quite unconcernedly -" A present from Herr von Hahn, for Rika Bantes. He intends to leave Her besheim early in the morning, and has his own reasons for not again entering into her father's house. It is to me in- comprehensible : a betrothed to travel away so soon. How shall I give them to her ?" " And how do you happen to know him, or he you?" " We became acquainted this morning, when I was paying a visit this morning to Rika and her mother. I shuddered when I first saw him ; the living image of the Spectre Guest. But he is a very good man ; and when he called on you, papa, I was just leaving the room ; we recognized each other, and he came in." , Minnie related all this in so uncon- cerned^ a manner, that everything was clear to the burgomaster, even to the minutest trifle.

The Port-Admiral sulky, because the Go- vernment are absorbed in the Land Regulations. He has prepared an able paper on the question of Crabbing; and clearly proves that a large revenue might be obtained by the issue of licenses to boys to catch crabs, either by spearing, or by hook and line. At present there is a wanton destruction of that valuable article of inland commerce, and supervision is absolutely required. The proper mode to gain attention is by shewing how it may be made a means of patronage; but the stupid old dog-fish disdains to go to work in this way. Why not have suggested the appointment of three Commissioners, to inquire into the present state of the Crab-fishery in our Rivers, and the best mode of making it a profitable source of patronage? The idea would have been snapped at...
