HOW ATTY BEAUCHAMP WON HIS FRENCH BRIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 July 1867

HO0W ATT Y BEAUCHAMP WON HIS FRENCH BRIDE. Dear cousin Atty Beauchamp (Miss Hen began), was considered the hand somest and most agreeable man of his day. Not without reason. To beautiful features, a well fashioned person, and a graceful carriage, he joined a sprightly wit and parts very considerable. My poor mother used to tell upon her fingers the names of a score, of modish ladies known to be smitten by his witty mirth, his agreable shape, his handsome face, and mischief-working black eyes. I do think that gentlemen and ladies of old were finer and handsomer than any we see now-a-days. I was counted no mean beauty in my time-it is no great vanity to say so now--but when my father heard folks admire me, he would say : Ah! Moll is well enough; but what is she to her aunts, ' the beautiful Hens of Paradise,' as they were styled? That was our family place; Paradise it was called. My father often told of the brave sight it used to be to see all the belles, with their attendant beaux, c...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 July 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, As a reader of your journal I have felt plea sure in observing the impartial manner in which you have admitted into its cohaums, letters or articles written by persons who en tertain different or opposite opinions onmatters relating to the political, commercial and social progress of the Colony. In the Herald of Saturday June 29th there is a leading article animadverting upon the system of education pursued in W.'A. and upon some of its state ments I venture to offer a little friendly .criti cism. I entirely sympathize with yonr first state ment " that it has been laid down as an axiom by the sages of all nations and of all times that national prosperity to be permanent, must rest for a basis on the right knowledge ol moral obligations." And I further agree witt you that this knowledge consists in the belief of a Divine revelation and a righteous obser vance of its requirements. I infer from your article that it is your opinion that the doctrine of ...

BRIGHTON FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 6 July 1867

S BIIEGHTON FAIR. I must confess a vagabond inclination for the vulgar pleasures of a fair. The mingled sounds of the mimic penny-trum pet, the rattle, and the toy-drum, the grinding of the barrel organs, the clash ing of cymbals, and the whole miscella neous concert of discordant music are always very exhilarating, and never more so than when they break in upon the monotonous routine of a fashionable watering-place. . About eight o'clock, on a fine warm September's evening, I quitted my tem porary residence on the Marine Parade, and, crossing the Steyne, mingled in the party-coloured stream of boys and girls, and children of a larger growth, which was flowing on towards " Ireland's Gar dens," where the fair was held. The road, like a grocer's shop on a July day, was swarming with flies. All the beaux were unbent, and the belles bending to beaux, as they greeted each other on the way, ridiculing the idea of going to a fair, and yet all pushing forward to the scene of the annual Satu...

THAT- there exists a necessity for inimprdve ment in our present system of landing and shipping goods, as wvell as for afford ing protection to ships while riding at anchor in the Roads, is admitted. Leav ing out of the question the damage to cargo inseparable from the use of boats, the cost of landing is equivalent to ten or fifteen- per cent of the. amount paid for freight, while the losses and delays arising from bad weather sometimes form not inconsiderable items on the wrong' side of accounts. The risk to shipping, also, especially in winter time, must tell against us in the matter of freights and insurance. Owners of vessels will charge higher rates, and underwriters will exact higher premiums for endorsing policies, if a few more cases like that of the Strath more be brought home to us.. The cost. of repairing this vessal will be little less than five hundred pounds.' Then:there was tihe case of the E?nmma, a few ,months since, and that of the New Perseverance, to say nothing...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 July 1867

STRANGE STORY OF A DOG.-A yery sin gular occurrence was on Friday brought to light in the Burgh Court at Edinburgh, by the hearing of a summons in regard to a dog tax. Eight and a half years ago, it seems, a man, named Gray, of whom nothing now is known, except, that he was poor and lived in a quiet way in some obscure part of the town, was buried in Old Greyfriars' Churchyard. His grave, levelled by the hand of time, and unmarked by any stone is now scarcely dis cernible; but though no human interest would seem to attach to it, the sacred spot has not been wholly disregarded and forgotten. During all those years, the dead man's faithfiul dog has kept constant watch and guard over the grave, and it was this animal for which the collectors sought to recover the tax. James Brown, the 4 old curator of the burial ground, remembers Gray's funeral, and the dog, a Scotch terrier, was, he says, one of the most conspicuous of the mourners. The grave was closed in as usual, and next morning, ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. "I SAW THEE SMILE." [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 July 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY. " I SAW THEE SMILE." I saw thee smile like summer skies When with rosy tints they're gleaming And the glances from thy deep blue eyes With truth, and love were beaming. I heard thee sing sweet songs of joy To' calm my bosom's beating; Those rapturous hours without a cloy Alas [ they weretoo fleeting. I saw thee weep-adown thy cheek Soft Pity's tear, was stealing ; I wish not-want not--will not seek A holier test of feeling. I felt thee kiss, my pallid cheek When pain my frame, was rending And saw thee-with an aspect meek Like a seraph-o'er me bending. I saw thee die; a gentle sigh Of peaceful resignation Proclaimed thy flight-to realms on high To rest ! to compensation! With bitter anguish, then I wept With grief my heart was riven When God in His great myst'ry swept Thy spotless soul to Heaven. But now thou'rt gone-and I must roam This sad world as I may Till I rejoin thee in that home Where sorrow. flees away. IVON ELLMORE.

CHIPS BY A SANDALWOOD . CUTTER. SOFT SOAP AND BLARNEY. "He won't," I says to Bill, who was persuadin' me to go to Barndoor and ask him for the loan of an adze" "Soap him," says Bill, "and you'll be sure to get it. He cant stand soap; he'll fork out anything if you only use a little of that useful inexpensive article soap, and if you can come a 'little bit of Irish blarney why so L-uch the better." "Tell you what it is Bill," I says, "' I can't come the soapin' bizness, 'taint in my line, I tried it on once, a good many years ago, when I thought of gettin' a horse to cart my own sandalwood down, but Lord it wasn't no go.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 July 1867

TJE present year will be long remem bered in the annals of this colony as re markable for a series of disasters un paralleled in any former period of its his tory. The public mind, startled by the news bf the untimely deaths of M.? GORGE SHENTON and those who perished withhim, had barely time to subside toits normal stale of tranquility,, when it was once more disturbed by the frightful catas trophe which resulted in the deaths of t;he Harbor Master, Captain James Ha;rd ing, and his boat's crew. Misfortunes rarely come singly, and, as if to prove the truth of this saying, intelligence of a third disaster has reached us, which, although niot unlooked for, is of a character so unusual, and. surrounded ..by circum s ances so peculiar, that it fills every heart with indignation, grief, and terror. We allude to the wreck of the New Perseverance, and the almost certain loss of the Emma, with forty two souls on board. :-The New Perseverance had arrived at Nicol Bay; with the remainder of t...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR,- A letter dated from Quindalup 13th June, 1867, in your last issue, signed "Nil Despe randum," induces me to offer a few remarks, hoping you. ill"6w me a small space in the rHerald for that purpose. After referring to the Police Constable stationed there, being about to be removed, he deplores that serious change of affairs, and the considerable expense gone to in erecting Police Quarters at Quin dalup. This considerable expense consists in a weather boarded and shingled Building of two apartments, and stabling for 2 Hlorscs, the material being found by Government, and put up by the present Constable, whether at his own or Government expense, is a matter of very little importance. I only mention this to show the magnitude of the Police Estab lishment there, and pass on to the second ground of complaint, why are the settlers to be deprived now of Police protection when it is required more than ever ? "Nil Despieran dum" evidently wishes to claim Poli...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Permit me to make a few remarks in reply to a letter published in the Herald of the 22nd inst., Signed "Nil Desperandum, relative to the rumoured removal of the Police from Quin dalup. The writer of that letter after sundry observations and queries about the expensive police quarters erected at Quindalup, (they cost the Government about thirty pounds I believe) goes on to say that, the settlers at Quindalup require protection more now than ever, because the Timber station absorbs a large number of the bond population, and insin uates that it is a place of concealment for all old chums who escape from the Convict Estab lishment, an insinuation utterly devoid of truth, as he must know, if he knows anything about the station. He mentions the case of the con vict Williams as an instance, I never'heardbefore that Williams was ever at the timber station. If the writer of that letter knew it, he was the only person there who did. He also says if the presen...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR. I have read with mingled wonder and amuse ment?critique, published in one of your con tempdraries, on a Concert given in the Mechan ic's Institute at Perth, and for two reasons desire to enter a protest against the preposter ous language inwhich it is couched: first be cause it is but an ill requital to the ladies and gentlemen who kindly volunteered their aid towards raising a few pounds for the 'Bush man's Library,' to have their efforts burlesqued; -id secondly-because it is unpleasant to have one's adopted country ridiculed for its absurd pretensions by European friends. Not long ago the same contributor, or at all events, one of the same' calibre, described an inspecton of the Pensioners, and Volunteers of Fremantle and Perth, by Capt. Finnerty in an equally extravagant strain ;-employing indeed precisely the same terms, in ludicrous ignorance of their meaning, that would be used gby a Times Correspondent to describe a review of twenty thousand...

REVIEW. Wes~t Australia~ Chnrch of England .2agasine. FoR JU-y. The principal subject in this month's issue is the addresses to'the Bishop on his leaving for England, and his Lordship's replies to them. It is very gratifying to be made aware by these addresses that the Bishop's earnest and unti ring efforts for the spiritual welfare of the colony were understood and appreciated by the people. We are pleased to see that the Concert in aid of funds for the Bushman's Library was successful, £20 being realized. The object is certainly one well deserving the support of every person interested in the future pros perity of the colony. It can only be by such means as are contemplated by the promoters of this scheme that the dwellers in the bush can ever be brought within the softening influences of religion. The writer of the pretty verses which we noticed in our review of the June number of the Magazine has again contributed some stanza to the pages now before us. We have seldom met with m...
