The [?]list. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 December 1879

The Novelist MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] The windows of Raymond's room looked towards the south, across the Arno and out upon the beautiful green slopes of Fiesole. But Raymond found no pleasure in the lovely scene. He could not forgive himself for being such a fool as to be caught in the trap that had been prepared for him. The change in Meg too had greatly aston- ished him and he was put out because he had been unable to conceal some part of his emotion. So, partly from spite, partly from a vague feeling of anxiety, he almost made up his mind to start back again at once. He soon however thought better of it, and de- termined, as the cork was drawn, to drink the wine. So early in the afternoon he crossed the Arno, .vent out by the Porta Romana, and made his way up a steep and narrow road which climbs the shady slopes of Monte Oliveto. It was three o'clock when he reached the little chapel on the top, where Meg had pro- mised to meet him ; and he lighted a cigar, and...

AN INTERVIEW WITH CETEWAYO. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 January 1880

AN INTERVIEW WITH CETEWAYO. By permission of Captain Ruscombe Poole, R.A., the custodian of Cetewayo, the deposed Zulu King was recently interviewed by some British officers previous to their departure for England. The interview is thus described in the Daily Telegraph := " At ten a.m. We were introduced, and found Cetewayo sunning himself on the ramparts of a bastion of the castle, and having his hair dressed. He shook hands with all of us-a good whole- some grip, with a cool hand and a huge fist. He was sitting on a mat spread on the ground, and had a red tablecloth, which partially covered his body and enormous thighs. We had brought with us a basket full of figs, oranges, sweetmeats, and raisins, of which last he is inordinately fond, a bottle of whiskey, and some coloured kerchiefs. We asked permission to give him these things, as we had heard that he was shy of visitors aud often would not talk to them. As with many less renowned men, an offering to his appetite loosened his t...

MR. BROCKMANS THIRD LETTERS ON L THE LAND QUESTION. ; > » - To THE EDITOR OF THX WBST AUSTRALIAN. * DEAS! Sra.-^-My principal reason for enter- ing upon' the land question at this time is to assist in keeping people alive to the fact that if we continue to borrow money for what we fondly hope will be reproductive works, as well as for those that we know will not be so, -such as the fifty thousand pounds for roads if we 'continue to keep up an immense police force, and to run expensive mail carriages, the ! revenue of the colony will have to be largely t increased from some source, and it appears to I me much fairer that the Government,should . obtain an increase of funds, by' turning the ' lands at their disposal to the best account, than by further taxing the general public. j * It is very nice to have respectable and well- ' mounted policemen capering about the towns at the.beck, and call of the Government ; it'is also pleasant to have ^commodious and com ojrtable mail carriage...

THE "ROB ROY." TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 January 1880

THE "ROB ROY." To THEEDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-We note " Brother Sufferer's" imagin- ary complaints in your last issue, and think it would have been much more gentlemanly if he had signed his name. Whether his complaint re wire is correct or not we cannot tell-per- haps it may be, for often times the weather dining the last few months has been such as to deter the steamers receiving or discharging. To verify our statement respecting the weather at the Southern ports, we may quote the wrecks of the Mary and also that of the Sarah Bun yeat ; and the lone going right through Bun- bury jetty, and the barque Bengal being in the Admiralty court for being saved by a boat's crew. The non-landing of goods is really no fault of ours. We only contract to receive and deliver at and from our steamer* tackles. This we are sometimes unable to do, as the port of Bun- bury is not fit for the steamer to go alongside the jetty, except on very special, smooth-sea 'days, - and there are none o...

HEW YEARS GOSSIP. " Ring out the Old Year, ring in the New/-' sings the poet Tennyson, and with chiming bella and clinking glasses, witteprayers from some and loud waasail song-from others, with merry laughter and secret tears, the Old Year goes to his 'grave,, and the New commences his chequered career. " The~King>is dead ! Long live the King !" The Old had many Borrows for us, but many joys ; many dis- appointments, but many hopes ; many bitter experiences, but muchJ precious wisdom easily extracted from them by thoughtful minds. Well, let us face the New Year bold- ly. . He will have few evils in store for us but those of our own making! A good enough friend will he prove to them who do not make him, of their own accord, a foe. For, after all, a wise philosophy will teach us to work out our own 'fates by listening to the -voices of our hearts. When we work by rule and square, or by the counsels of others, Jen to one but we do our work badly ! c ¿i V Man is his own star, and th...

MR. BROCKMAN'S THIRD LETTER [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 January 1880

MR. BRÖCKMAN'S THIRD LETTER Two letters upon the land question by MB. EDMUND BROCKMAN, of Henley Park, have lately appeared in our columns and haye at- tracted a good deal of attention from the public. We have not yet commented upon the views which MR. BROCKMAN has put forth ; we propose to do so as soon as the cor- respondence which has been the result of his manifesto, comes to an end. But this cor- respondence shows that MR. BROCKMAN'S opinions find anything but favour with his brother squatters, and MR. BROCKMAN him- self at the oresent time is a much-abused man.; If our readers turn to MR. BROCKMAN'S third letter, which appears in another co- lumn, they will see that he has taken up an altogether different subject, and has gone in for some very hearty abuse of the ' powers that be,' and for serious lamentations at the short-comings of his late brother legislators. We were puzzled at first to understand the cause of this new departure, but after some consideration we started a t...

Cmmtrg. Jet jp, : *¥ASSE, Dec. 27. uur bay is «till favored with the melancholy spectacle of the hull -of the Sarah Burnyeat, not far from, the jetties. There is io sign of her'being rè-masjted here^or taken to Freman- tle for thai purpose. The formal inquiry into the circumstances'of her stranding resulted in the cancelling of the master's certificate and the suspension for six months of that of the chief officer. , The weather has been most trying for hay- makers. Frequent showers throughout the earlier part of this month, and on the 18th, quite a heavy fall of rain. Since then we have had a week of fine drying weather, but a fall- ing-glass promises a little more rain before the year is out. i Very-much damage has undoubt- edly been done to the hay crops. 1 Christmas day was dull enough in 'the town, and a sad accident at night did not tend to make people more cheerful. Three sailors be- longing to the May Flower, at Lockville, left this jetty about 10 p.m. in their boat to retur...

Ladies' Column. A FEW WORDS ON DRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 January 1880

Ladies' Column. A FEW WORDS ON DRESS.   It used to be a complaint against English women that with one accord, like sheep over a fence, they followed each other in the matter of clothing. If flounces were in fashion, every- one, whether thin and tall or short and stout appeared in flounces. If barred or checked dresses were the mode, everyone went barred   or checked. Doubtless, some of our readers remember the illustration in Punch where a   lady, clothed all in striped garments, was ex- pressing her opinion of the absurdity of the stripes of the zebra !           The present fashion seems, however, to be   showing us more or less of a " new thing under the sun," which is, that ladies who devote much thought to their dress—and some do spend a   very large amount of their time in the pleasing occupation—seem to be decorating themselves each after an idea o...
