NEWCASTLE. From a Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 November 1874

NEWCASTLE. ',-. From a Correspondent. At the Agricultural Society's dinner, about /f ' 60 persons were present, Mr. Dempster, as chairman, presiding. The usual loyal toasts-"The Queen and. Eoyal Family," " The Prince of Wales," and " His Excellency Governor Weld."-were pro- posed by the Chairman; the latter toast was honoured in right good style ; the member for this district (Mr. E. Hamersley) being conspi- cuous in urging the gentlemen present to cheer ad libitum. The health of Mr. E. Hamersley was then proposed, and, in returning thanks, _ he stated that he thanked them very much for "" ' the kind way in which his health had been drank, and found that wherever he went he found lriends and firm support ars. He assured* them that the colony must progress it they only put ¿he right men in the right place.

ANNUAL REPORT OP THE TOODYAY, NORTHAM, AND VICTORIA PLAINS AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 6 November 1874

ANNUAL REPORT OP THE TOODYAY", NORTHAM, AND VICTORIA PLAINS AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. There ia little to vary the twenty-first An- nual Report ot your Committee from that pre- ~~~ sented to your Society in the preceding year, f A steady increase continues in flocks and herds, and the number of acres under cultivation ; and iu the absence of any extraordinary stimulus to exertion, the squatting and agricultural interests have for the most part progressed favorably. With no flourishing timber trade, like the Southern districts, nor mineral re- sources, like our Northern neighbours, these districts have been able to hold their own, in ^ --> spite of many counteracting influences. One ot the greatest drawbacks to agi ¡cultural advancement is undoubtedly a scarcity of suitable labor. This want has been severely felt tor some years past, and at present the operations of the agricultuiist and squatter aro materially retarded by a paucity oí bands for their purposes. The recent offer, on the...

C o je X6s$itvihcntt. SCHOOLMAS TEKS. HINDRANCES AND HELPS. XO THE EDITOB. Sr»,-I loft off with " What are good laws if we do not have good men to execute them ?' Any person who has had much to do with schools knows that one of the greatest hin- drances to the progress of the children is irre- gular attendance, and the very early age at which they are taken from school. Doubtless these eviis are in some degree owing to the extreme difficulty of providing fora numerous iamily out of slender earnings ; yet, when the education is entirely free, the tame thing hap- pens, and owing to the same cause. The children aro required for triSing errands i.e., " j>igs to mind ;" " birds to drive away ;" or "mother's baking;" "child to mind;" or ** take care oi the younger ones at home;" or " a child has no shoes, or has none but ragged clothes, and sometimes mother's .washing." In most instances no remedy would suffice short of compulsory education. Having said this much, something should be a...

PFETH v. H.M.S. " BARRACOUTA." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 November 1874

PFETH v. H.M.S. " BARRACOUTA." Nothing daunted by their defeat at Fre- mantle, the Barracouta team came up to Perth on the following day to try conclusions with a metropolitan eleven, to whose superior prowess they succumbed with the boat possible grace. The Perth eleven were the first to yo in, and as hour after hour passed by it became doubtful whether they would ever get out a<;ain. F. Hare and O'Burt were tho first to enter into partnership, and King was pitched to bowl against the former, while Freeman was elected to do the same kind office for the latter. As in the memorable match between the All Muggletonians and the Dinidey-Dellers, seve- ral players were statioued, to " look out," in different parts of the field, and each gallant tar fixed himself into the proper attitude by plac- ing one hand on each knee, and stooping very much as it he were " making a back ' for some beginner at leap-frog. AU the regular players do this soft of thing-so it is recorded of the f...

Harracouta was played on the Fremantle cricket ground on Friday last. The weather was delightful. No great exhibition of cricket was exyected on the occasion, and as none was afforded the spectators were not di», appointed. The "rust of repose" was plainly observable both in the batting and fielding of the naval eleven, whose play created no little nmosement if it did not excite admiration. We do not know who won the toss, but thin we do know-Deputy Commissary Skinner, the cap- tain of ths Fremantle team, and Lieut. McLeod the généralisais of the Barracouta men, were seen to meet on the ground and look at a coin flying in the air, and the result of this experi- ment was first that the said coin went into the owner's pocket, secondly that the tars went to the wickets, Nov.
