No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 15 June 1867

NEXT to a fertile soil, and an incustrious and enterprising population, there is, perhaps, nothing so conducive to the wealth and prosperity of a colony, as good harbors. There are places teeming with the choicest productions of earth, and peopled with men by no means want ing in industry, where, for want of sui. table outlets for marketable commodities, the people never attaiunto more than a sub ordinate rank tmong'nations. While, onthe other hand, the inhabitants offar less favored regions are enabled, by the superiority of their geographical position, and a few indentations in their coast-line; to monopolise the commnerce ofhalf a'onl - tinent. The natural productions of the. earth are comparatively of little value upon the spot that bore them. It is the facility of placing them in distant markets, where a demand for them exists, that fixes their commercial value. Without these facilities, the surplus left after native wants are satisfied, becomes a mere drug; with the means of t...

RE VIEW. W'17. .

The present number is above the ave rage in interest. : Some little time back, in a notice of this Magazine, we expressed a desire to see more original matter in that portion of it got up in the colony. We give it as our opinion that it would give increased value and interest to the publication if it con tained more local church intelligence, and we stillthink so. We are pleased to'record a great im provement in the quantity of original matter. The June number cnntains more .original articles than has appeared for some time. Conspicuous among them, .isi "an article by the Bishop of Perth on "Ultra Ritualists in England, and their doings," to which we shall presently re vert, and some gracefully written verses entitled "D...

THE RAMSGATE LIFE-BOAT: A RESCUE. CHAPTER I. A WRECK OFF MARGATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

THE RAMSGATE LIFE-BOAT: A RESCUE. - ( From Me Millian's) OCHAPTER I. A WREECK OFF MnARGATE. ;:: . The night of Sunday, the twelfth o February; in the year 1860, was what sailors call a very dirty night. tHeavy masses of clouds skirted the horizon as the sun set, and, as the night drew on, violent gusts of wind swept along, accom .panied with snow squalls. It was a dan gerous time for vessels in the Channel, and it proved fatal to one at least. Before the light broke on Monday morning, the thirteenth, the Margate lugger, Ec?i2pse, put out to sea to cruise around the sands 'and shoals. i·n 'the neighbourhood of Margate, on: the look out for any disasters that ihight' have occured during the night. : The crew soon discovered that a vessel was ashore on the Margate Sands, and directly made for her. She proved to be the Spanish brig Samaritano, of one hundred and seventy tons, bound from Antwerp to Santander, and laden with a valuable and mriscellaneous cargo. Her crew consisted of Modes...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

Soral *ntellgtent. The praiseworthy efforts made by some members of the York Agricultural Society to organize a fresh expedition to explore the country to the East and North East, we regret to hear have failed, in consequence of the apathy of the settlers in the matter. The list sent round for subscriptions in aid of the object, received but few signatures. Whatever may be our own opinion about the country, we Scannot but admire the persevering spirit of those who would! Try again I The government, We think, offered very fairly, to give as much as the settlers could raise among themselves, and also to supply certain useslul articles of equipment. It was as much as the govern ment could be expected to do under the circum stances. .

Some of the settlers sat up all night with arms in their hands to welcome him should he have favoured them with a call. The police ...

SUMMARY FOR THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

FOR THE MAIL. THE time has again come round, when it becomes our duty to review, and place before our readers, especially those, who though distant, still take an interest in Swan River and its '" belongings," social, political and commercial. Under the first category, we have but little news to record. The time has not yet arrived, when British Statesmen must take into their consideration the state of the colony, as it is, and will be affected, by the cessation of transportation, and the consequences, which must inevitably follow, from an unholy compact, by which they became morally participes criminis, byyielding to requests, which no political economist would attempt to de fend. The Imperial Government, unable to obtain any colony, or community will ing to receive her bond class, gladly availed herself of the mistaken offer made by this colony, and for years lavished her Treasure, to rid herself, of an intolerable social leprosy and nuisance. And so long as one of the contracting...

YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

YORK. (Erom our own Correspondent) A? week or so back, aman named James Hughes, alias Jemmy Kisser, was committed for trial by the York lench for feloniously entering the dwelling house of a man named Cardwell, in the service of Mr. John Taylor Yangedine. The facts as given in evidence by Cardwell's wife were these. She sleeps in a cottage on on Mr. Taylor's farm, but boards in the house. On the night in question, her husband being absent with Mr. Taylor's team, she was awoke by the cat jumping on her face. Feeling alarmed, she rose to get a light, and in stretching Sout her hand to reach the matches she caught hold of some person. She got the matches, and in her fright lighted the whole box: dropping them on the floor in a blaze she was enabled to have a good look at the man. She screamed, and the ruffian who had entered through the calico window proceeded cooly to un fasten the door from the inside. It was secured by a piece of timber let into a hole in the floor and just falling ...

To the Editor of The Herald SIR·,- : One of my partners, "Wormwood," said I had ~ little word or two to say about one or two matters which would perhaps save you a resort to the "scissors and paste." I now beg to trouble you with the threatened effus ion. Tribune and Plain John, as as well as my partners Gall and Wormwood, have all been digging away at one abuse or another, I wish to bring to notice the evil of "Officialism," or the art of making a great ado about noth ing. In almost, every place of any importance the duties assigned to the officers of Government are usually sufficiently heavy to keep them pretty fully employed, and as for the perfor mance of those duties they are tolerably well paid, the consequence is that they are gener ally men of some ability, with minds large enough to understand that, officious meddling neither tends to the efficiency or respectability of their offices. In this little place we have just the reverse of all this; the duties are generally so tri...

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD CUTTER. MiR. AND MRS. SOFTIE. WAITING FOR THE BUSHRANGERS. I was down at old Softie's the other day a settlin' about a little job as I had done for him. He's an awkward old feller to manage and don't like havin' to stump up the tin. 'Taint I think because he's a miser but he aint got it, and he don't like to say so, but tries to get out of payin' some other way.

Public Opinion. For the statements and opinions of our Correspondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Edior of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

ubIic opitniton. For the statements and opinions of our Corres pondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Edior of The Herald. SIR, In the Inquirer and Commercial News of the llth inst. a letter appears, signed *' Publi * cola," on the subject of a Steam Navigation Company in this Colony. I should certainly be inclined to put down the writer of that letter as an Old Maid, entirely unacquainted with shipping matters in .general, and steam vessels in particular, especi ally with regard to the expenses connected therewith. ' Publicola" talks of raising a 'Company with a capital of£3000 or £4000. Such a steamer as would be adapted for the coasting trade of this colony could not be bought much under £15,000. There are sun dry drawbacks, which would prevent a * steamei from paying, viz., the absence of docks, and the large expense attending the importa tion of suitable fuel, as it is well known that firewood would be next to useless. Take for example the steamer Queen of the N...

TRADE &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

TRADE &c. We have no material alteration in, the state of trade to report since last month. If any thing it is slightly depressed. . The arrivals of the Strathmore and the Ivy have stocked us with Drapery and other descriptions of soft goods, and general merchandize. Eastern and colonial produce, however, are still in fair de mand. There has been considerable enquiry for Sugars of medium qualities as, well as for low dark rations. Good samples ofPatras and Zante Currants, and Valencia Raisins are also eagerly sought after. Good Coffee's are like wise very scarce. Teas are only in moderate demand. Really good samples of Negrohead Tobacco would find buyers at paying rates. There is perhaps, no other market where such an amount of bad Tobacco, taking into consi deration its limited consumption, is sent as that of Western Australia. This sort of rub bish finds buyers, we suppose, or it would. not be sent. The stocks of both imported and West Aus tralian Flour are still far beyon...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR We have heard that the Police Consta ble stationed here, is about to be re moved and the Police Establishment will be broken up altogether. Permit me to offer a few observations, through the medium of your paper, on this to us serious change of affairs. In the first place the Government have gone to considerable expense, in erecting police quarters at Quindalup-what will be done with those buildings, when the constable is removed? They are only suitable for the purpose for which they were intended. Secondly, why are the settler's to be deprived now of police protection, when it is required more than ever ? The settlers here contribute their share towards the Revenue, and have as much right to expect protection, as settlers in other parts of the colony, and even more so, as the Timber station absorbs many of the bond population, some very good men, and a few of the opposite sort, to whom, when an old chum escapes from the Convict Establish ment they. ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 June 1867

YESTERDAY week witnessed the spectacle of a fi.e new ship, laden with a valuable cargo, in imminent danger of being wrecked in the Harbor of Fremantle. At the moment when we were writing an article advocating the construction of a Breakwater, so as to afford a safe shelter for ships trading to this Port, the Iv was bumping upon a sandbank. It appears that the wind was blowing so strong as to snap asunder one of her cables, when she was in a measure left at its mercy, and dragged her remaining anchor after her for a considerable distance. She drifted exactly in the direction calculated to en sure her destruction, and, but for a fortu nate accident, would very soon have knocked a hole through her timbers. Fortunately for the underwriters, how ever, about eleven o'clock the wind shifted, and enabled her captain, with the assistance of the Harbor Master, to execute a manoeuvre that saved the ves sel. There was some difficulty in this, and we are glad to bear testimony to the judgment di...
