Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 December 1879

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The annual meeting in connection with the breaking up for the Christmas holidays of the Government Girl's School, at Perth, was held   on Friday. The new school-room, where a good deal had been done in the way of floral decora- tion of a very tasteful character, presented a   gay and festive appearance. A lively interest was taken in the proceedings by several ladies. Mrs Goldsworthy and Mrs. Parry kindly un- dertook the duty of adjudicating upon the sam- ples of plain and fancy needlework, done by the pupils, which received from those ladies a close inspection and appreciation. A special prize, the gift of the Hon. the Colonial Secre- tary, was awarded for the best piece of needle- work, and the award was made in favor of Sarah Green, the second best being Alice Sewell, and the third Isabella Stokes. The writing and dictation in all the higher classes were remarkably good, and bore testimony alike to the attitude of the...

OUR LAND REGULATIONS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

OUR LAND REGULATIONS. To THE EDITOR OV THR WERT AtTRTBALTAK. 1 Dear Sir,-According to promise I forward a few lines in continuation of my remarks relative to the Crown lands of the colony. It is very generally allowed not to be right that the same rent should be charged for scrubby runs as for grassy. With regard to the North- ern District, I consider that lease-holders should be compelled to have a certain amount of stock upon the land, bearing some propor- tion to the quantity of land they lease, within a given period, from the date of selection. First class land, as described in the 55th section of the Land Regulations, claims our more immediate attention. That the land should be classified if possible, I think nearly , , all admit ; but there seems to be great difii- > , culties in the way of that, the good and bad , land being so intermixed. " i \ Public valuators might be employed to fix and declare the rent to be next charged for all 1 first class lands now under lease; bu...

CHEISTMAS CABOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

CHEISTMAS CABOLS. Tne word carol is oeiievea to be derived from the word enroua, a round dance. It is said that the singing 'of carols, in remembrance of th# birth of Christ, was first known in the second century after Christ. A century or two later the carol waa no longer a sacred song of praise, but had become of such an objectionable character that it was forbidden by the clergy. The singing of Christmas carols still exists in the old country, and is not altogether unknown in Australia. Carols, were, at one time, sung in English churches at Christmas time instead of the ordinary hymns. We append a quaint specimen, which we believe will be new to most of our readers : , THE CHEBBY TBEE CABOL. (Traditional.) Joseph was an old man, , An old man was he ; He married sweet Mary, The Queen of Galilee. As they went a-walking In the garden so gay, Maid Mary spied cherries, Hanging on yon tree. Mary said to Joseph With her sweet lips so mild : * Pluck those cherries, Joseph, For to give to...

farm and Station. MR. BROCKMAN'S LETTER ON THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

¿farm wù Station. MR. ' BROCKMANS LETTER ON THE LAND QUESTION. To the Editor. Sib.-I should like to make a few remarks upon Mr. Brockman's letter which appeared in your last issue, and perhaps you will insert those remarks in your * Farm and Station ' column. In the first place I do not agree with Mr. Brockman that " any land worth holding at all is worth the amount at present charged." Set- tlers every day are obliged to take up land for want of any better, which apparently is abso- lutely worthless. Land is taken up now that would not have been looked at a few years ago. Sheep increase but slowly, still they do increase, and, the good¡land in the settled districts being all occupied, the squatter looking for ' pastures new ' is obliged to take what he can get. And he aften takes land and uses it, upon which it is impossible that his sheep can thrive, until long years of grazing have gradually improved the quality of the pasturage. He gets no lamb ings worth speaking of; his sheep ...

HOW TO MAKE GOOD CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

HOW TO MAKE GOOD CHEESE. To an inquiry in the Agricultural Gazette "How is good cheese made?"-44A Cheese maker" sends the following : It is made of pure, sweet milk, clean rennet, good salt, and good management. I will give him the description of a cheese made in a fac- tory, which took the first prize last year, and averaged 76s. per cwt. the whole season-first four months making 80s, last three months 74*., bulk being sold at eight weeks old. Night's milk cooled down to 60° Fabr., morning's milk added, and the whole heated up to 80°. ^ As much rennet added as to cause it to show signs of thickening in 15 minutes, and quite firm for cutting in 60 minutes, when it was cut in half inch cubes as gently as possible with a steel knife quite sharp ; then gently heated up to 90°,. when it was allowed to stand for one hour. It was then stirred up, re-heated to 100° Fabr., at which heat it was kept for two hours, when at began to feel hard in the hand, and was what it cheesemaker calls " sh...

EAST LESSONS IN POLITICAL ECONOMY. A CHINESE TALE: (BY BASTIAT.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

EAST LESSONS IN POLITICAL ECONOMY. A CHINESE TALE ; (By Bastiat.) Bastiat, the well-known professor of poli- tical economy who wrote the following little allegory, intended by means of it to show the folly of trying, by Protection, to create indus- tries which are not natural products of the soil and clime ; and also the fallacy of the theory''that labour and wealth are synony- mous, terms-that labor diverted from ita na- tural grooves, and applied by the help of Protection or of any other artificial means to purposes which without some such assistance would not be reproductive, is, in reality notwithstanding that appearances may some- times lead people to take a contrary view labour wasted, and a source of loss to the community at large. There are of course, as we showed once be- fore, exceptional circumstances where an arti- ficial stimulus may be legitimately applied. But these cases are extremely rare, whereas the fallacy that artificially-produced labour, meana profitable labou...

Labies Column. BISHOP'S COLLEGE FOR GIRLS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

Rabies' ?¿>lmmt. BISHOP'S COLLEGE FOR GIRLS. On Wednesday evening the 17th inst., the prizes for the half-year just ended were distri- buted by the Bishop of Perth to the girls of Ms recently-opened College. Owing to the institu- tion having been in existence for so short a time, it was thought better not to have a pub- lic examination, but to be contented with inviting the relatives of the girls, and one or two others having a special interest in the school, to be present. The proceedings com- menced with an overture from Lucrezia Borgia, played very nicely by Miss Finnerty and Miss Curtis. The Bishop then said a few words to those present upon the object and prospects of the school ; expressing his sense of the obliga- tions he lay under to the Lady Principal (Mrs. Allen) for the manner in which she had enter- ed on the work, and his thankfulness at having secured from England so thoroughly competent a head teacher. He then proceeded to distri- bute the prizes, of which a list ...

MR. BROCKMAN'S VIEWS ON THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

< MR. BROCKMANS VIEW3 ON THE i LAND QUESTION. i To the Editor of thb West Australian. Sut.-Lest silence should appear to give con- sent to the preposterous ideas put forth in your issue of the 19th instant by Mr. Brockman anent the land regulations, I must crave per- mission to enter my protest against views which if carried into practise would simply ruin and annihilate the pastoral tenants of the Crown, and would destroy the mainstay of the colony, viz., its export of wool Mr. Brockman basis his proposal to increase the present rents five fold, on an opinion from which I differ in toto. He says that the worst grazing land is worth its present rental, and then by some process of reasoning peculiar to himself he arrives at the conclusion that all pastoral tenants at the expiration of their leases should be called upon to pay five times their present rental I maintain, on the contrary, that the worst grazing land is not worth its present rental, for there are very few shee...

CURIOSITIES OF FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

_^. . ? -f " - i ¡¿kg CURIOSITIES OF FREMANTLE. (By Lounger.) Pre-eminently stands the bellman. Who that has visited the port but has remarked and listened to our thorough-going and highly extraordinary bell-man, and derived amuse- ment from his comical gyrations and reun about movements when delivering his an- nouncements. The port is remarkable for the great number of its auction sales, so much so, that sales by auction have become quite an institution of the town. Travellers remark it, and ita remarkability is enhanced by our still moro remarkable bell-mau,-po- pularly called ' Tommy Hopkins.' The very name of the crier is funny. I remember a a short time since standing in Caesar's balcony in company with a gentleman, who was pas- sing through to India-he was a traveller of world-wide experience, and both of us were much amused with Tommy's stentorian clear voice and peculiar movements. I remarked to him 'Tommy ia certainly the best bell- man in the colony.' He replied ; " In the...

THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, DEC. 26,1879. CHRISTMAS-TIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

THE Wltü %wimlk\\. ViGiLANs BT Audax. PERTH, FRIDAY, DEC. 26,1879. ^hTíístmas5i5eT Christmas-tide is supposed to be a season for mirth and kindliness j a time when un- friendly and rancorous feelings should be laid aside, and all should join in joyful com- memoration of that day when true civiliza- tion first dawned upon the world, and peace and good will was first preached unto man- kind. But the Christmas feeling is very much a matter of association. To those of us whose childhood and youth was spent where the celebration is still fresh and real. Christmas is associated with certain memo- ries, certain scenes, the absence of which make the festival but a shadow of the glad reality, and our Australian efforts at rejoic- ing under a broiling sun but poor imitations of the snowy pleasures we remember in old England. We Australians are justly proud of our country. The love of it ia strong in us and we naturally resent any depreciation of its merits ; but amongst them, we are ready to ...

RING-BARKING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

BING-BABKING. A correspondent who writes that he has read with j?i-eat interest the paper contributed by Mr. Bichardson to our * Farm and Station ' column last week, upon the " Improvement of Grass Lands " sends some additional informa- tion with regard to ring-barking. He says : ' Among pastoralists a variety of opinions exist regarding ring-harking. I have always held that the best time to kill trees is when the sap is rising, and the fact that the undergrowth is stronger after such being done is but a proof that tile soil gains strength more speedily than if the operation were deferred until after spring. If the cutting is properly done, so that the lower ring of the bark forms a " catch" for the rain which may fall, the trees and undergrowth die speedily.'

Occasinal Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 December 1879

êtamml Botes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The Otway's mails bringing seven days later news from the Eastern colonies, were delivered at Perth on Tuesday. From our Sydney files we gather that the Estimates for the ensuing year were tabled on Dec. 1. The total um »unt required for next year is ¿£4,984,183 against ¿21,992,686 voted for this year, or a decrease of ¿28,502. The sam set down for immigration is ¿675,000, the same as last year. It is pro- posed to increase the salary of the Agent-Gene- ral to ¿£2,000. The sum of ¿8349,197 is down for Public Instruction, being a slight increase on the previous vote. The receipts for the year are expected to fall short of the estimates to the extent of ¿8571,314, leaving an a.t'ial defi- ciency of ¿6200,047, which the Treasurer pro- poses to charge against the surplus revenue ac- count. He estimates the expenditure for 1880 at ¿84,984,183, and the revenue from existing sources at ¿84,761,875. He proposes additional taxation to the extent of ¿8358,000,...

She had not been able to get the same edition of Lucretius as that she had destroyed, but she sent Raymond a superb copy of "Wakcfield's, in three volumes, 1796 ; """ and ho really gained considerably by the transaction.
