MONOPOLIES. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

S . MONOPOLIES. -0---o No. II. Before coricluding my reniarks upon this' siubject, it will be necessary to refer to a letter, that appeared in this Journal last week, signed C. A. M. Emanating fromi whomsoever it might, it was written in the interests of Messrs. Felgate & Co's., vessels. I should not have stopped to notice it, however, only that it contains matter-which may be turned to account. And it is always advisable to seize upon the enemy's weak positions, when possi ble, and turn his guns against himself. Passing over the wiiter's opening re marks, which, being of i purely personal character, do not call for comment, I come to a sentence where he asserts that "the third paragraph contains a falsehood, there is no Monopoly between this port and London." The quibble here raised is of no consequence, whatever. Vessels sailing between this port and London, carry goods both ways, I presume. Still, if the term suits him better, I repeat the. assertion in a different form. ...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR. I read with considerable interest an article that appeared in your issue of the 18th inst: respecting the discovery of landsto the East fitted for pastoral purposes-and the practicability, should such lands be found, of driving stock thither-As the subject is of very great importance to the flture of the colony; I must.ask the favor of ,a space in your columns for a few remarks onthe matter. I have travelled a considerable part of the journey, and so am practically-acquainted with the difficnlties of the road-Editors are. not infallible yeou will admit, and the man who has seen a country must know more of it than one who has not. With respect to that portion of the article in question referring to Mr. Roe's letter about the murder of some white men I have no wish to say anything. It is to the latter part of the article only to which I would refer. Its tendency is to discourage exploration to the Eastward on the grounds that allprevious expeditions h...

'Loral *nteigcenee. WuILLIAM JOHNSON, Pensioner, charged on the? Coroner's inquest with the manslaughter oftE Allcock, another pensioner, has been committed i to take his trial at the next sessions on the more serious charge of Wilful Murder. YESTERDAY a sudden and violent storm of thunder and hlightning burst over Fremantle, during the short time it lasted, much damage was done, the Store of Messrs. Shenton & Co. was partially unroofed, and a quantity of yalu able stores destroyed and injured. THREE Prisoners, William Graham, Thomas Scott, and George Morris, broke out of the Establishment, between the hours of 12 and 3 o'clock a.m. on yesterday. Graham was one of the chain-gang. and we believe it is his third attempt. He waa under sentence' of penal servitude for life, for intent to murder Mr. Edward Quartermaine, Scott has we believe, been rcconvicted twice. It appears that they must have got out of their cells by means of false keys. They went direct .to the carpenters sh...

F. R. V. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, The Company order No. 000 published in the Inquirer of the 12th September last and signed by me, has been so scrupulously adhered to, that I have been instructed to again solicit the attention ofmembers.

THE PERTH TOWN HALL [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

THE PERTH TOWN HALL The anniversary of our belovedSovereign's birthday has ever been looked to as a.fit subject for the display of popular affection to the best of Queens. It was happily arranged to combine with the usual festivities a subject of the highest interest to our Colonial populaa tion, the ceremony of laying the foundation of a Town Hall, and Market-place in Perth. The most complete arrangements had been made by the City authorities for making it imposing and attractive, and had the weather permitted it would no doubt have been dis tinguished in the annals of the colony as a brilliant success. As it was, the zeal of the authorities both-¶ civil and military was not damped, notwith standing the incessant downfall of water that emptied itself on the assembled spectators. The most liberal arrangements had been made for the accomodation of the public, and nou pains or expense spared to make it worthy of the occasion. All praise is due to the worthy chairman of the city counci...

SCENES AND SEASONS. AUTUMN. Concluded from our last [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

SCENES AND1 SEASONS. Cvncluded from our last The wind sweeps over the hills and dales with a soft " dying fall." The trees bear the rich tints of golden brown, and mellowed amber, and chestnut red, wherewith they hide their coming, decay, even as fading beauties deck themselves. with gay attire and gorgeous colors to veil the ravages of Time! The valleys stand thick with the golden wheat, court ing the reaper's sickle. Here and there it has done its work, and the full sheaves are piled in rows of bounteous plenty. Now through the prickly stubble the Shappy village children, with their bright, rosy, sunburnt faces, scramble in amic able rivalry, their tiny hands helping to gather up the heads of corn which have escaped the binder's hand. Here troop their mothers home, each with a goodly heap of "gleaning" poised upen her hand, and aprons also filled-rich store •towards winter provender. In the old farm-house the good dame has made a huge bowl of fuirmity, and all the house hold have ...

•;. . . t i For the. statements and opinions of our Corres pondents, we do not hold ourselves 'esponsible. To 'the Editor: of' The IHerald.. SIR, You have been so kind in, allowing me space in your columns for ventilating my remarks that I am induced to trespass further on your kindness. By " entilate,"' I 'understand, to give anything to the winds. Such, I fear will be the result of what I have to say. I was surprised at learning from your co lumns, that the Governor had been in commu nication with parties in Sydney, on the snbject of Steamboat Intercommunication, and that he had been also favored with notice of the Postal Delegates Conference. In both instances, though he had replied, the facts were never communicated to the public at large, It is all very well, very red tape like to leave matters to Secretaries of State, but in times of great agitation as at present, Secreta ries of State have no leisure, and less inclina tion to occupy themselves with the affairs of a distant an...

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. GRIZZLE GRUMBLETON, OR A WORD TO THE DISCONTENTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

-: CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. GRIZZLE GIGRIUMBLETON;, OR A WORD TO THE DISCONTENTED. 0-o-' It would be a pleasant kind of country to live in where you couldn't find such an animal as a grumbler. I'm afraid there aint such a spot to be found on this earth. Go where you will you're sure to meet pussons as ain't satisfied, a cryin' out everlastin'ly "I wish I was a doin' better, I aint a gettin' on here, I must make a change" and so on, enough to give one an attack of the cholera to listen to 'em. There's generally a country where some one thing flourished better than in any other. Now it's my opinion-and I've pretty good reasons for it-that gruntin' thrives better here than in most places. If it aint a native of the country its taken kindly to the soil, and I don't think you could ditto it for discontent from the North Pole to the South. It aint much of a compliment to be sure, but its the truth, and that's better than a lie, if it aint quite so agreeable. A compliment generally ha...

MONOPOLIES. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 1 June 1867

MONOPOLIES. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Disregarding all the twaddle and cor*imon place contained in the last article signed "Tri bune," I now write simply. to advise your con tributor to adhere to the truth. In his last article he states that claims against Messrs. Felgate & Co's. vessels are never paid-This is a gross falsehood. I have paid many claims amounting to a very large sum, as my books will shew. If" Tribune," without knowing, the truth, writes from his imagination, he shows himself a simpleton; but if he gets his Inspiration from the office in which he is engaged, he can not but know the truth. He is a deliberate teller of falsekoods. IC A. M. Fremantle, 30th May, 1867.

THE CONSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

THE CONSCRIPTION. Up four flight of stairs in a house in Paris were three snug little rooms in habited by the family Roumille. They had only peaked roofs, chimneys, and the blue sky to look out upon, but so pleasant were the rooms within, and so neat, and tasteful and sunny, that there was small temptation to turn the eyes away from them. It wasevening, and the family were assembled at supper. They were observ ing a fete, and the best gilt china glit tered on the table, a little bouquet of fresh flowers stood by each glass, and an iced cake, surrounded by a wreath of rosebuds, distinguished the centre. Around the board sat the jolly, affection ate old father, the delicate and loving mother, their brave, handsome boy, and one other, not now belonging to the family, but soon to be called daughter by the parents, and wife by the son. She was a gentle, lovely young girl, looking with affectionate respect upon the old folk,. and with fond modest eyes upon her lover. " Son," said the moth...

SOPHIE'S CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

SOPHIE'S CONFESSION. " Men are never so awkard, never so ungraceful, never so disagreeable, as when they are making love. A friend is a luxury-a husband ditto, I suppose; but that intermittent class of human beings denominated "lovers" are terrible bores. It does very well for a woman to blush and look flustered now and then, when occasion makes it desirable; but to see a man with his face as red as a ripe cherry, and a real parcel of strong-mind edness, self-reliance, and masculine dig nity, done up in broadcloth and starched linen, quaking from the toe of his boot to the top of his shirt-collar, his mouth awry and his tongue twisted into convul sions, in the vain attempt to say some thing sweet-0 gracious !" So said saucy Sophie Lynn aloud to herself, as she sat swinging backwards and forwards before her window, half buried in the cushions of a luxurious arm-chair, and playing with a delicate rivory fan that lay upon her lap. "It always seems so strange, not to say tiresome," she ...

LITTLE MABEL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 8 June 1867

LITTLE MABEL. Little Mabel had no mother. She *as slight, and sweet, and fragile, like her type, the lily of the valley. Her little hands, as you took it in yours, seemed almost to melt in your clasp. She had large, dark eyes, whose depths, with all your searching, you might fail to fathom. Her cheek was very pale, save when some powerful emotion lent it a passing flush; her fair, open brow might have defied an angel's scrutiny; her little foot step was noiseless as a falling snow-flake; and her voice was sweet and low as the last note of the bird ere it folds its head under its wing for its nightly slumber. The house in which Mabel lived was large and splendid. You would have hesitated to crush with your foot the bright flowers on the thick, rich carpet. The rare old pictures on the walls were marred by no envious cross-lights; light and shade were artistically disposed. Beautiful statues, which the sculptor (dream-inspired) hadrisen from a feverish couch to finish, lay bathed in t...
