CIRCULAR FROM BARON FERD V. MUELLER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

CIRCULAR FROM BARON FERD V. MUELLER. For the completion of an universal work on   Australian indigenous plants, it is desirable to obtain additional collections of plants in a press- ed and dried state, particularly from districts far inland or recently settled. It is an important aim by these means to trace ont the exact geo- graphic limits of the many thousand species, which constitute the original vegetation of Aus- tralia, in order alio that all observation on their respective utilitarian value, whether for pastoral culture, medical, or industrial purposes, may become recognized and applicable to the widest extent. Moreover it is neccessary to study still further the degrees of variability, to which all kinds of,plants are more or less subject, vith a final view of circumscribing the exact charac- teristics of each species. It is to be impressed on those, who feel interested in the promotion of such researches, not to exclude from local collections any plants, merel...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, JAN. 20, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

THE e*t ^traitait. VicuLANS et Audax. PERTH, TUESDAY, JAN. 20, 1880. The question of chief importance which will have to be decided at the forthcoming gene- ral election, is, undoubtedly, the constitu- tional one. And if the result of the- poll were in any way likely to depend upon an intelligent comprehension of the issue in- volved,-upon the fact that the pros and the cons had been carefully weighed, and that; with full information io enable them rightly to judge, electors had' arrived at a decided conclusion, and at a decided determination to see that conclusion carried out-then the prospective struggle would be one of serious interest to the looker on. Knowing, however, as we unfortunately do, how great is the general indifference, how small a part political principles play in de- termining our political contests, and finding as we do that even on an occasion as import- anlas the present, not more than one half of the constituencies are likely to be given an opportunity of votin...

CHURCH BUILDINGS AT NORTHAM. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

CHURCH BUILDINGS AT NORTHAM. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-In the Herald of the 3rd inst., appears a strange epistle from that journal's Northam correspondent, which is likely to cause a wrong impression in the minds of the public. The correspondent states, that our church building" is ' a standing disgrace,' a ' miserable place for the worship of God,' and ' almost in ruins.' This I most firmly deny, the church having undergone a thorough repair within the last few months. As to the word ' ruin,' it is quite out of place in reference to an edifice in so good a state of preservation. I doubt whether the correspondent has ever seen the church, not belonging to the same commun- ity, I am aware that the Roman Catholics have built a little church of their own at Northam -much, .to 'their credit ; but the building would' perhaps look much better if the joints between the bricks were not so thick. If the Herald's correspondent would but state the truth, and the whole truth, h...

JETTY DUES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

JETTY DUES. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-The " Victorian Express" of the 17th,   Dec. contains an article upon Jetty Dues. I cannot congratulate the writer upon the accur- acy of his statements which show that he has not even taken the trouble to read the jetty re- gulations ; and his arguments are equally open to objection. In the first place it is proposed to reduce the jetty dues from Is. 6d. to 9d. per ton, and the writer a little further on expresses an opinion that so far as the Champion Bay jetty is con- cerned, the Government have not been large   gainers by the transactions, notwithstanding the time of the landing waiter having been drawn upon, and, after pointing out the par- ticular assistance rendered by the landing waiter, it is questioned whether the Govern- ment " with the heavy rate charged " has made any profit at all. Now if the writer has proved anything, it is the necessity for an in- creased rate, for it is quite clear if ...

RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT AND ITS ADVOCATES. TO THE EDITOR OR THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT AND ITS ADVOCATES. To the Editor or the West- Australian. | i Sir,-The advent of the elections brings the Responsible Government question again to j the fore. Its benefits and virtues are loudly Herald-eñ. forth-its drawbacks and disadvant- j ages are the subject of study to many an anxi- . ous Inquirer-whilst a late change in the Times I bids fair to prove beyond doubt that its imme- diate introduction would not be at present a desirable West Australian policy ! Let us reflect a little on this important ques- tion! Responsible Government is a complete form of Constitutional or Representative Gov- ernment usually made up of two branches commonly known as the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council. All the members of that branch known as the Assembly are elected or chosen by the people, and the Min- isters, or executive officers therein, hold office only solong as they can by virtue of their ability, or tact, or administrative talent, or by a combinat...

THE LAND CORRESPONDENCE REVIEWED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

THE LAND CORRESPONDENCE RE- VIEWED. To the Editor of the West Australia*. Sir,-I have read with very great interest the series of letters and articles which have ap- peared lately in the West Australian, and as no one has as yet, reviewed the arguments adduced and statements made, as a whole, I will attempt to do so. I will take Mr. Brockman's letters to begin with, and in justice to that gentleman I must say that I think most people have strained the meaning of his words beyond that which he intended to convey. This is, perhaps, partly Mr. Brock man's own fault for not being more precise, and for using figures in a rather haphazard style. He says : "I consider any land worth holding at all te he worth the amount at present charged" » * * * ««large blocks of land are now leased at not more than one fifth of their rental valuer" What I understand Mr. Brockman to mean is, that by giving security and inducements to im- prove, a portion of the land would bear a higher rental than it yie...

THE COMING BATTLE. TO THE EDITOR OR THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

THE COMING BATTLE. To the Editor or the West Australian., Sib,-On the eve of a general election it will perhaps better enable lookers-on to appre- ciate the nature of the struggle, if we; analyze the elements which form those little ' armies about to test their strength. To indicate them distinctly we must go back to the session of 1878, when the blunders in connection with the Northampton-Geraldton railway, and the battle of the ' North and South side ' assisted at the birth of the ' Reform League.' At that time the political body was com- posed of three parties, which may be fairly described as Conservative, Liberal-Conserva- tive, and Radical ; the balance was trembling between Conservatives and Radicals, and much depended upon winning the Liberal-Conserva- tives to one side or the other. At the first burst of the ' Reform ' cry, the Radicals seemed likely to be successful in their efforts to gain this party, which, excited by lately exposed blunders in administration, was consid...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

#caáonaí goíes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. \ We hear that a laborer in the employ of Mr. Joseph Harris, at the Canning, met with a fatal accident on Sunday last. The man, it appears, was engaged in fixing a tarpaul- in on the top of a hay-stack, when the rain came on, in the afternoon, and he slipped down, head foremost, and dislocated his neck. Be died a few minutes afterwards. Since the retirement of their worthy Pre- sident, that august and influential body of. politicians, yclept the ' Reform League, appear toihave been placed ina peculiarly perplexing' predicament, with regard to the nomination of a candidate for the represen- tation of Perth. On Saturday last, one of the few illustrious leaguers left, waited upon Dr. Scott,- of this city, and asked him to allow himself to be nominated as their candidate for the representation of Perth.

Country Letters. NORTHAM, Jan. 14. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 January 1880

(fi/tmotrg 'guim. NORTHAM, Jan. 14. The weather here has been frightfully hot almost -unbearably so. Wheat stripping is nearly over, and both as regards quality and quantity the harvest is turning out most satis- factorily. Prices for grain appear not yet fixed here, but barley and oats tor local use may be quoted at 3s. 3d. ; wheat 4s. (cash at mill,) and 5s. in payment of store accounts. Hay is very plentiful,'and there is very little sale for it, the cessation of the sandalwood trade, in this dis- trict, having made a great difference in the quantity consumed. Talking of hay reminds me that considerable irritation is felt here at the action of the police officer in charge of the station in taking " self sown hay" from the contractor, contrary to the well known conditions of the contract. Wheth- er the hay delivered is of good or bad quality has nothing to do with it ; the Government in- sists upon naring «own hay and undoubtedly constables should see, without fear or favor, that ...

Cílegrajjic Itos. [Associated Pkess.] Adelaide, Jan. 20. Several bush-fires have occurred, doing much damage. The citizens have decided by a large major- ity to light the city with gas instead of kero- sene. A young man, named Pound, attempted to murder his step-father with a revolver this morning. The victim of the outrage lies in a precarious condition. The bushrangers Scott and Rogan were executed to-day, quietly. London, Jan. 17. The Times repeats its approval of the scheme for Constitutional Reform in Vic- toria, advocated by Mr. Service, which is to enlarge the basis of the Legislative Council, to provide for its dissolution, and for a joint sitting of the two Chambers in the event of a prolonged disagreement between them. The Times looks upon the scheme as one which, in practice, would work well, without resort- ing to revolutionary changes. It believes that the Council, if it refused lo accept such a measure, would afford a justification for the interference of the Home Gove...

But some of these an- swers are not of the usual kind, and an- nounce at length the policy their reputed authors intend to pursue. At Fremantle two candidates appear, yoked together, with ministerial responsibility for their platform, and they tell the electors at length their viev* s on the main topics of the day.
