In referring to a despatch from the Ger- man Government, asking for explanations as to the recent military movements on the German frontier, Russia states that she is simply massing troops in Poland because that is a convenient centre at which to collect the forces withdrawn from Bessarabia and the Crimea, consequent upon the conclusion of the late war. A fortnight has been granted to arrange for a new trial in the Tichborne case, conse- quent upon the question raised regarding the power of the Court that tried him to pass two sentences for the same offence.

Supreme Court—Civil Jurisdiction. (Before His Honor the Acting Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, JAN. 14. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880
Supreme Court-Civil Jurisdiction. (Before His Honor the Acting Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, JAN. 14. The Supreme Court sat in its civil jurisdic- tion on Wednesday last. The Supreme Court Office. Mr. Howell called the attention of the Chief Justice to the fact that the Supreme Court office was often left without an attendant clerk, and that, consequently, on more than one oc- casion he had buen put to considerable incon- venience thereby. His Honor said he also had noticed that the office was closed during the middle of the day, and that not a soul was left in charge. All he could say was, if loss or damage arose to suitors by the default of those gentlemen whose busi- ness it is to be in attendance at the office, they would have to bear the consequences that was all. It might appear arbitrary that young gentlemen should not be allowed to do just as they liked ; at the same time the inter- ests of suitors must not be allowed to suffer.

THE Wita %mtxúxm. ViGiLANs et Audax. PERTsTjBRIDA^rTAN. 16, 1880. ^mX^äeITsI^y^IEanlfestoT It is gratifying to find so very large a num- ber of influential settlers coming forward do support as a candidate for the representa- tion of York, a gentleman held throughout the colony in such respect and esteem as Mr. Edward Hamersley, of Wilberforce. And we have no doubt that, should Mr. Hamersley be returned, his cultivated mind and much natural ability, will make him a really valuable acquisition to the Legislative Council which will shortly be formed. Like Mr. McKenzie Grant, Mr. Ham- ersley has taken the opportunity afforded him by his requisitionists, to make in his reply to their invitation a statement of his political views. His manifesto is by no means common-place or conventional. He does not repeat the well-worn arguments and assertions which we have heard 'and read so often from the lips and pens of others, and of which we have consequently grown so tired that they carry but li...

MORE ABOUT THE LAND QUESTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 January 1880
MORE ABOUT THE LAND QUESTION. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-As the land question is just now oc- cupying tbe attention of my brother settlers, in the columns of the West Australian, Ï should feel obliged if you could find space foy the few following remarks. I think that a large quan- tity of lnnd is let for much less than its value, and might fairly be made to provide a larger land revenue ; at tíie same time much of the Crown land is so bad that the present rate is quite high enough for it. To class these lands is almost impossible, as the good, bad, and indifferent are -so inter- mixed. I would, therefore, suggest that in all the districts (except the Northern), agricultur- al areas should first be declared and hud out in blocks ot from 100 to 1000 acres, and sold by auction at an upset price of £1 per acre. The unsold portions of these areas could be let from year to year as at present. . *" The remainder of the land I should let, either under the present license sy...

Law Intelligence Supreme Court-Criminal Side. MONDAY, JANUARY 12. Maliciously Wotjnmno a Cow. Gbobge Payne, an eldery man, of respect- able appearance (said to be one of the earliest settlers in the Southern districts), answered to his recognisances and pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with having on the 4th October last, maliciously maimed and wounded a cow, the property of Mr. Henry House, at the Capel. Mr. S. H. Parker appeared for the defence. The facts of the case as disclosed in evidence were as follows : The prosecutor, Mr. Henry House, resides with his mother at.the Capel« where they keep a farm, adjoining the prison- er's property. On the 4th October, House and his brother m law, Charles Scott, were coming from the Mahogany Station, and when cross- ing a bridge in the prisoner's field, they noticed the prisoner standing concealed behind a tree. He had an axe in his hand at the time. When he saw the prosecutor and his companion he went up to them, and while t...

AN APPEAL. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880
AN APPEAL. ? To the Editob. Deas Sib,-You will have seen copies of the decades of my,'Eucalyptus Atlas,' amd as the work is to include also the species of your vast colonial territory, I would venture to ask whe- ther you would make an appeal through your valuable journal to colonists in remote locali- ties, to. dry for me branchlets of all Eucalyptus (gum trees), of their district, in bud," in .flower and fruit. If such, so' easily dried and de- spatched specimens, are accompanied by note on height, soil, bark, gum (kino), timber, time of flowering, native names, etc., their value would-be greatly enhanced. I am somewhat disappointed in my hope to have been able to' interest Western Australians and induce .them to .collect; as yet I have got scarcely anything. Kegardfnlly yours, FEED. V. MUELLER.

to anï ^tatton, WIRE FENCING. To the' Editor op* the West Australian. Sir,-I noticed some hints in your last publication relative to the guage of wire fencing, which, are very useful. The height and guage of the 7-wire fence cannot perhaps be improved upon, if 4 feet is sufficient for large stock ; but, for division fences for sheep alone, I can assure your,country readerathat I know from practical observation, the 7-wire Jfence can be improved upon. I have friends in the other colonies who I know have miles &lt;>f division fences for sheep alone that range from 2 ft. 6 in. to 3 ft. (never higher), and posts from 12 ft. to 18ft. with braces between, '-and answer the purpose well, sheep m ver attempting to jump, unless driven or very frightened, when they always attempt to rush through a wire fence, and not over six wires No. 8 and No. 1U-for the 3 feet fence, and 5 for lower fence, makes a proof fence, and effects a saving of some pounds in money to the mile, both in wire...

DISTRICT POLLING PLACES. To the Editor of the West Australian. .Sir,-1 notice by the Government Gazette that there are two polling places appointed for Fremantle, and they are within two minutes' walk of each other. Now, if one of them had been fixed at Rockingham the public conveni- ence would have been apparent. Is it likely the printer's devil has been play- ing a joke upon us ? Nothing is more calculated than the present arrangement of polling places to create confusion, trouble, and annoyance to all persons .concerned. Yours truly, AN ELECTOR. Fremantle, Jan. 15.
[Extract.] Lacepedes, Nov. 20. 1879. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880
[Extract.] Lacepedes, Nov. 20. 1879. &nbsp; &nbsp; Dear Richardson.- I arrived at Beagle Bay on Monday last, with the sheep and horses-with the- loss of only four sheep. I- was rather dis- appointed with the country that I saw about the coast, and had some difficulty to find water for the sheep, and finally had to water them in buckets at the well. I took a ride round for a few miles to look out a good camp. I found plenty of springs, and fair feed, but very coarse, there being too much shade. The country is very similar to that piece of land between Fouracre's place (on the coast road to Bunbury) and the Bunbury Estu- ary, only the timber is thicker and not so large, but of every description. I saw plenty of na- tives, and cannot say that I am pleased with their appearance. I intend taking a trip, over to the Fitzroy as soon as I can get settled and a ' shanty ' built. Hector "McRae and Doctor O'Meehan with me ,at present, but other- wise my party is not as good as ...

THE ERADICATION OF THE POISON PLANT. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-In the West Australian of the 13th. instant appear an article on the eradication of the poison plant, inviting the opinion (of persona who can give any information on that subjectrtherefore.I give my experience, which I trusi^may be of service. In Dec;. 1874,1 had the matter of destroying what iff commonly known as ' York-road poison ' under consideration, and, from what I could learn, grubbing the plant would be labour thrown away ; but it occurred to me that if the tap ¡root, which reaches nearly to the surface of the' ground, were cut (say about one inch be- neath tSe surface), thereby removing the knotty part from which the branches shoot, the hot summer sun would effectually kill the main root left in the ground. Therefore, I selected a small plot of poison, and after treating it as "above, watched it for four years without seeing' a single young shoot make its appearance. If cut off several inches ...

THE BEAGLE BAY COUNTRY. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir;-Thinking the public take a deep in- terest in any movements connected with the opening up and occupation of the new country lately reported upon by Mr. Alex. Forrest, and would like to hear any account of that class of early pioneers who, risking life and capital, have by their enterprise and energy converted the Australian wilds into what they now are, I send you an extract from a short note I have just received from Mr. Julius Brockman, from Beagle Bay. &nbsp; If it is not out of place, I may here mention that in answer to an application to the Com- missioner of Crown Lands, as to whether any settler, actually landing sheep and stock on the Fitzroy would recieve any preferential right to select and occupy runs, and whether they would be granted a free stock run (in proportion to the number of sheep landed) for the first two or three years, in the same manner as the early settlers at Roebourne had, the reply...
