CONVENTS AND COQUETIRY.:' '" How hard it is "to decide for lonesself ! If there's a trial: in th':ie world: li . s . in the exercise of free will" " ".. "Wherefore, Lizzie ? .asked , her father. " Of course we wis:h to do everything that pleases our fancy," replied Lizzie, "and of course we wish to oblige all our friends ;. and so of course we propose and promise everything, until one thing gets in another's way, and all are con fused, everybody's disappointed, and we don't do anything at all. I'm tired of life. I wish I were a.nun." " Let me see," said her father-" how many gentlemen have asked my leave to pay their addresses to you ?" "Nine I suppose," said Lizzie. " And how many have you at various tii?es accepted ?" " Eighteen," she replied. " That is a fair beginning for a nun but what's the trouble now ?".

WRECK OF THE HARBOUR MAS TER'S BOAT AND LOSS OF FIVE LIVES. ON Sunday the 23rd inst, one of the most awful and appalling accidents hap pened that has ever occurred in the his tory of the colony. While returning from the Strat~mnore which he had boarded Sin answer to 'signals of distress, and with in a comparatively short distance of the shore, within little more than an hour from the time he left his home in answer to the call of duty the Harbor Master Capta:n James Harding-and four of his crew had met a sudden and untimely end. Words cannot describe the intense excitement that prevailed when the report of the first gun fired from the Str.thmnore, gave warning that something serious had happened. As each successive gun was fired a ild blue lights burnt the excitement increased. Notwithstanding the incle mency of the night, men and women rushed from their homes to ascertain the cause of such unusual and startling sig nals of fellow creatures in distress. All was wild conjecture; noth...

ORIGINAL POETRY. "IMMORTELLES." [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. ' IMMORTELLES." I.laid ye down on the green hill's breast In that hallowed garden of peace to rest Where a glory shines,from the crimson west. . O'er your slumbers children mine. My gallant boy with his golden hair His frolic laugh, and his dauntless air And my bashful girl with her ringlets fair And eyes of azure shine. Back to the world and its cares I came And the current of life flow'd on the same Though love for me was a buried name A joy no more to be Others have left me through change andtime In woman's beauty, and manhood's prime But the flowers I gave to that angel clime Still bloom unchanged to me. When my heart grows weary of strife and wrong. And I sit apart from the heedless throng There comes to mine ear a spirit song And my spring time children say, "Come i Come! to us on the green hill's crest Where a glory, shines from the crimson west And fold us soft to thy loving breast For ever-and for aye."'

PERTH WORKING MEN'S ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

PERTH W ORKiING MEN'S ASSOCIATION. TIE following Third Annual Report of fhe Perth Working Men's Association was adopted at an Annual General Meeting held on the 29th May : The operations during the year have been of an ordinary character, and the present condition of the Assocation may be said to be represented by solidity-the result of a gradual and health ful gro-wthrather than by vigorous energy; indeed just the state similar institutions here are foundin, not less prosperous; and your Committee receive this fact as a source from which its members may draw considerable satisfaction, as at its advent not a few people were found unwilling to predict for our Association such a position as it now holds. Discouragements have, it is true, been felt; and your Committee may have to regret that efforts which have been put forth with a view to further the object of the institution have not proved fruitful ; they are not without hope, however, that these may yet become so.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

Loral *ntelligence+ WE learn from our correspondent at Bunhury, that the American barque Adeline was nearly wrecked in that roadstead. The crew proved mutinous at the critical moment and it was only after several ineffectual attempts that the captain was enabled, aided by the efforts of the Resident Magistrate, to get hands enough to work the vessel out to the sea. -o WE feel it our duty to say the Fremantle Bridge notwithstanding the fears of some and the prophesies of others that it would come to grief the first heavy gale, has escaped the anticipated danger. We are surprised that no attention has been paid to the approach to it from the town which is in a disgraceful state and needs immediate repair. -o ON Saturday last, the Bishop of Perth left for London to join the Conference, we rejoice to hear that before leaving he received an address, signed by parties not in communion with the Church of England, as well as by a numerous body of those, who have specially benefitted by the ...

THE RIVALS [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

Mrs. Mary M. and her friend Emma G. were married ladies, blessed with good husbands and comfortable homes. The wolf;, poverty, prowled afar from their habitations, preying in other precincts, and avoiding their well-defended abodes. Their homes were to them like little worlds that contained the chief things they cared for, and when they thought of things without, it was generally in order to consider how they might be made, di rectly or indirectly, the means of increas ing the comfortable things within their own habitations. These married ladies, though friends, as the term is generally used, might have more properly been called intimate ac quaintances, for their separate pursuits, though similar, were too absorbing to allow of that warmth of heart and ex treme interest in each other's welfare that could justly claim the name of friendship. There was one failing, too, that kept their hearts apart and checked the flow of their mutual good-will. We all have our weakness, and these pat...

Public Opinion. For the statments and opinions of our Correspondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

For the statements and opinions of our,Corres pondents, we do not hold ourselves respo?sible. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, The columns of the public press generally afford pretty sure indication of the temper of the springs which move the community it re presents. There is much interesting instruc tion in dissecting the feelings, motives aiid ideas, which weekly pass in review, and little difficulty in arriving at a pretty accurate esti mate of the pervading spirit, which sways the colonial movements for lethargy or for ad vance. -There is a silent undemonstrative energy and intelligence, which acting within its own sphere, sustains and stimulates in a limited degree the career of progress. But the min who employs the medium of the press is of a different ca:st, a more active fervid spirit, which not content with mere personal influ ence, seeks the aid of the public broad sheet as a lever to stamp that influence on the action of his fellows.. Even among shrewd intelligent.men, ...

THE RAMSGATE LIFE-BOAT: A RESCUE. CHAPTER III. A WRECK OFF MARGATE. THE RESCUE AND THE RETURN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 June 1867

THE RAMSGATE LIFE-BOAT: A RESCUE. (om .Iacmilla"n's) CHAPTER III. A WRECK OFF MARGATE. . THE RESCUE AND THE RETURN. Harder still the gale, and the rush of the sea, and the blinding snow-t-he storm was at its height. As they headed for the sands, a darkness as of night seemed to settle down upon them; they could scarcely see each other; but on " through the raging sea they drove the gallant boat. As they approached the shallow water,-the high part of the sand, where the heaviest sea was breaking, they could see spreading itself before them, standing out in the gloom, a bar rier-wall of foam; for, as the waves broke on the sand, and clashed together in their recoil, they mounted up in colums of foam which was caught by the wind, and car ried away in white streaming clouds of spray, and the fearful roar of the beat ing waves could be heard above the gale. But straight for the breakers they made. No wavering, no hesitation; not a heart failed ! The boat, although under only her double-r...

IT is not often that we are called upo6ito chroniicle events, of a startling natir~e; .in this small community; and when the ne cessity for it occurs-when we.have. to record some dire calamity, thatt.,has be fallen us, the limited number of.the popu lation is such as to render the misfortune almost a domestic one. There are few persons of any note, filling either public or private situations, whose names are tit more or less familiar to every heartli'in the colony. And it is owing to jthisl, cir cumstance, as much as any other, that when a violent death terminates .the earthly career of such men, an amount of sympathy is elicited that would not be felt elsewhere.

THE RAMSGATE, LIFE-BOAT: A RESCUE. (From .facmillan's) CHAPTER III. A WRECK OFF MiARGATE. THE RESCUE AND THE RETURN. The terrible suspense-when each moment was a moment of fearful risk from' the time they let go their anchor to the time they were clear of the vessel was over. It had lasted nearly an hour. The men could now breathe freely; their faces brightened; and from one and all there arose, spontaneously, a pealing cheer. They were no longer face to face with death, and joyfully and thankfully they sailed away from the breakers, the sands, and the wreck. The gale was still at its height, but the peril they were in then seemed as nothing compared to that which they had left behind. In the great reaction of feeling, the freezing cold and sleet, the driving foam and sea were all forgotten; and they felt as light hearted as if they were out on a pleasant summer's cruise. They could at last look around and see whom they had in the boat. Of the saved were eleven Spaniards -the master...

Let him read the letter again, he wont find the sequitur he arrived at, or we are much mistaken. No ! we arrived at a broad principle, and not as he fancies at a person, and he will on re-perusal, we are sure, find we are guiltless of the stain on our '" Trad. Mark" which he assumes us to be. If he would look deeper, in fact, he would have hit the mark quite as near had he men tioned many another than he did when he in stanced the Superintendant of Water Police. His fault is principally the being thrust into an office which no previous habits or experi ences could possibly have fitted him for, and how lamentable has been the result! When experi...
