The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 10 November 1874

testera australian Aimes, st 80LUM NON MUTAT GENUS. U! -. -_._:_ ti à The opponents of the adoption of Re- sponsible Government in this colony play, for the most part, like Paganini, on one string, but are not, like him, able to " discourse sweet music." They have but one strain, and that a poor one, for the ears of the people. Their cry is " ex- pense,"-we cannot have it at such a price ! No doubt we shall hear more of this, as we have already usque ad nauseam, when our Legislative Council meets, and it may be weil, therefore, to inquire what the adoption of Responsible Government has cost other colonies. We have said that in a financial view it must be looked on as a source of pro- fit, not as a loss. We are confirmed in that opinion, though indeed no confirma- tion is necessary for what is a simple truism, by the consideration of the official report of the Government statistician of the neighboring colony of Victoria, for the year 1873, which is now before us, and from which we e...

McLartey stated to the bench that the prisoner could not plead ignorance, as he had been previously convicted for a similar offence. His Worship observed it was the imperative duty of the police, for the protection of both life and pro- perty, to ascertain the character of parties perambulating the streets at a late hour of the night; and however respectable a party may be, or honest his occupation, he was bound, ac- cording to the law, to give, when required in a proper manner, his name and address, or would render himself liable to a penalty not exceeding £5, or 3 month's imprisonment. There was a second charge preferred against the prisoner for using abusive and threatening language to the police constable when arrested.

CAUTION!! Spurious "HOLLOWAY'S PILLS AND   OINTMENT." I TAKE leave most respectfully to in- form the public of Australia that spurious imitations of my medicines, emanating from the United States, and labelled "HOLLOWAY'S PILLS" or "HOL-     LOWAY'S OINTMENT," London and New York, are being sold in the Australian Colonies. I have but one place of business, as at foot, and there only are my genuine re- medies manufactured ; allow me then to caution you against being victimized by unscrupulous vendors.

BEVERLEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 November 1874

BEVERLEY. Agreeable to proclamation respecting the election of School Board members, that event came off here on the 3rd, and the results are as follows, I may however, that eight candi-   dates were proposed, and the following gentle- men were elected :-Rev. F. Lynch, Messrs. A. S. Clark, James Fleay, H. Lukin, and H. York. That these gentlemen will do their duty, I will not undertake to record a single doubt, but such apathy and neglect on the part of members of country School Boards, has too frequently happened, and is too true to be passed by without some misgivings as to the future. But surely no gentleman would allow his name to remain enrolled on the list of mem- bers, it he could not, or felt no desire, to per- form punctually and well, the duties of that office! The Central Board of Education, in   their report to His Excellency for the year 1873, allude to the importance and necessity of more active interest being shown on the part of Local Boards...

VICTORIA (From our Champion Bay Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 November 1874

VICTORIA (From our Champion Bay Correspondent.) The Victoria district is once more itself again   settled down to the reality of every day life. The Governor, Colonial Secretary, Commissioner of Crown Lands, and other visitors all returned not more pleased at their reception than the people of theis district are gratified at having had the opportunity of showing in whom they believed. The district is accused by some of being flatterers and saying things to please. This very small clique are principally residents of Perth, men of "very small soul." The   people of this district believe that they have received vast benefits at the hands of Governor Weld, and have the manliness to acknowledge it, thinking that gratitude expressed is no sin. Red rust has appeared in one or two places on the Greenough, but not sufficient to cause any feeling of uneasiness in the minds of the farmers. One man (Gould) has cut down about 12 or 14 acres of wheat for hay, and the rus...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 November 1874

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. We cannot insert any correspondence for which we should be unwilling to assume the usual editorial responsibilities, nor any state- ment oí facts, without the name and condition of the writer are known to us. We cannot undertake to return rejected communications or to assign any reason for non insertion. We regret to learn that, in consequence of very serious illness in the Governor's family, the Farewell Ball, to which His EXCEL- LENCY cmd MES. WELD had issued a large number of invitations, will neces- sarily be given, up. His Excellency is ex- pected to leave for King George's Sound, overland, about the end of this month. THE news by this month's mail affords little of interest except that a son has been born to the DUKE'of EDINBURGH, and the appointment of the successor to Governor WELD. For the rest, rail- way, and baloon accidents and fires, are the most important items. War is, as we anticipated, impendiLg on the River Plate. The probable in- terventi...

8%e testent Australia« Simes. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. F&IDTrT'NOVEMBER^i3r 1874. INFOESIATION has been received by telegram from London, via Adelaide, that our new Governor, Mr. ROBINSON, will arrive next month, and that he is in possession of the views of the Imperial Government on the Constitutional ques- tion. There seems no reason to ap- prehend that the Home Government in any way dissents from the proposed change, or will hesitate to give this colony the direction of its own affairs, but it is understood that certain details of the bill introduced last session will require revision. Although as yet in ignorance as to what details are in ques- tion, we cannot doubt that one of them will prove to be the Civil List, and, prob- ably, those who have been carping at Schedules A. and B., as altogether ex- travagant, may find that those with whom the decision rests consider them in a very different light. We have endeavoured, but we fear with little success, to show that the Cro...

SWAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. From our Own Reporter. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 November 1874

SWAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. From our Own Reporter. The annual meeting and show of stock in connection with the above Society was held at Guildford on Wednesday. The weather is one of the first considerations in gatherings such as this, and the at- mospheric influences on that day were decidedly favourable. The sky was over- cast nearly all day long, and a bracing breeze blew from the south-west, but an occasional glimpse of the sun through the cloud rifts imparted genial warmth, and the day passed off without rain. The cool, pleasant weather was well suited to the occasion, because instead of the exhibits of live stock sweltering un-   der a hot sun, as they have sometimes done, they were enabled with compara- tive comfort to bear the intrusive and in- quisitive inspection of the crowd. The attendance of spectators was not large, notwithstanding the propitiousness of the weather, - the Bazaar at Perth pro- bably preventing many metropolitan folks from being present who, ...

PERTH POLICE COURT. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., P.M.) NOVEMBER 9, 1874. JOHN SMITH was charged by p.c. Proper- john with being drunk and disorderly, and also with assaulting Mary King, a half-caste with whom he had been for some time cohabiting. Sentenced to 2 months' imprisonment with hard labor. WILLIAM GREGG, an itinerant blind fiddler, was charged with being drunk and disorderly in the public streets. Sergt. McLarty stated the prisoner had frequently been brought be- fore the Court on similar charges, but through his loss of sight had been let off with a small fine, but his conduct of late had become such that he was a perfect nuisance to the public. Sentenced to 1 month's imprisonment. CHARLES EDWARDS, carpenter, upon being charged by p.c. Callum with being drunk and incapable, and also with being out of the pro- hibited hours, was sentenced to 2 months' im- prisonment with hard labor.

THE DINNER [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 13 November 1874

THE DINNER took place at half-past one o'clock at the Liverpool Arms, in the room where from time immemorial these annual festive gatherings are held. It proved somewhat small for the number of guests, and one or two who arrived rather late had to choose between foregoing their dinner altogether, or taking it under decidedly disadvantageous circumstances. The re- past was well served, and presided over by Mr. W. Padbury, M.L.C., the vice- chair being occupied by Mr. C. C. Faunt- leroy, the Honorary Secretary. The usual loyal toasts having been drunk with full honors, Mr. PADBURY proposed "The Health   of His Excellency the Governor,"-a toast which he was sure the company would heartily honor. In all probability the present would be the last occasion His Excelleney would favor them with his presence at these social gatherings, and he would therefore ask them to drink his health in a full bumper. His Excellency had been amongst them now for about five years, and he (Mr. P...
