To the Editor of The Herald [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 13 July 1867
Ts o the Editor of The Herald SIR, I offer no reply to the letter of Gall Worm wood & Co. in which they casually, rather than directly, object to some hints addressed by me to their junior partner. My reason is, not thsb I discover any cause to alter or modify the views I have expressed, but because I do noit think there is any profit or interest for th@ public in that which, on my part, must be ri mere reiteration of abstract principles. I hav' another motive for silence, in so far that further d.scussion would butprolong the evil I condemn, because the personal feelings and the private immunities which I hold sacred, must of neces sity become the shuttlecock in the game to ensue. I am no polemic, I initiate no question, I siimply talke an interest in discussions affecting public good, and desire to see them directed in a right spirit, in the right direction. Having stated my opinions of what is legi timate argument and what is trespass, I leave the question so, quite satis...

An Irishman some years ago, attending the University of Edinburgh, waited upon one of the most celebrated teachers of the German flute, desiring to know on what terms he would give him a few lessons. The flute player in formed him, that he generally charged two guines for the first month, and one guinea for the second. 'Then, by my soul,' replied the Hibernian, 'I'11 begin the second month !' Collins the poet, though of a melancholy cast of mind, was by no means averse to a jeu de mot or quibble. Upon coming into a town the day 'after a young lady, of whom he was fond, had, left it, he said, how unlucky he was that he had come a day after the fair, A wit askeda countryman at what time he most enjoyed himself?'

CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 July 1867
CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETIES. Some leading friends of the Co-Operative movement have started a journal called the Industrial Partn ersh~ps' Record, a curious repertory of out-of-the-way facts, figures, and proposals, all bearing upon the subject. The following little table, which is official, seems to us to speak volumes. 417 societies, send ing returns, possessed an united capital, owned by 148,586 shareholders, of 761,313.; the same societies had a bo'rowed capital of 112,7331.; they had made net profits in the year 1865 of 279,2261.; after paying 5 per cent. upon borrowed capital, the members had thus realized an average upon their invest ments of over 35 per cent.; and an average upon the whole of the money employed (share and loan alike) of over sOper cent. We are told that the "regular traders" are begin ning to hate the co-operative shops more than the masters hate Unions, and talk of forming Tnions among themselves to put them, dpw n.
LIABILITIES OF SHIPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 July 1867
LIABILITIES OF SHIPS. WE have no desire to re-open the ques tion of liability of ships for-damage to cargo, that was so fully discussed in our columns a few issues back. But we feel sure the following extract from an Eng lish paper in which Mr. Justice Shee lays diown a most important principle that it is not enough that a vessel should be generally seaworthy but that she must be seaworthy for the particular cargo she is to take, and the voyage she is to perform, will be acceptable to all classes of our commercial readers: "An action, the hearing of which com menced on Friday and extended over ~the whole of Saturday, was brought by Mr. Roper against the English and Scottish Marine Insurance Company to recover 2,0001. upon a policy of insurance upon the ship Gorilla, on a voyage from Liver pool to Sydney, and was concluded on Monday, at the Liverpool Assizes, before Mr. Justice Shee. His Lordship, in reviewing the evidence, said the whole question for the Jury to consider was the sea...
MY GRANDMOTHER'S RING. A TALE FOUNDED ON FACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 July 1867
MY: GRANDMOTHER'S RING. 'A TALE FOUNDED ON FACT. • "My g.randmother was a very delightful oldolady. She had a wonderful memory, andan inexhaustible fund of amusement, with which she was always ready to en Stertain her young descendants. Amongst other, treasures she possessed a curious ring. It was very large and massive, .being set on one side with a large splen Sdid diamond of the first water, surrounded ::by twelve smaller ones, equally brilliant, and of immense value. To this ring was Sattached the following legend, relatedgby ·theold lady. herself. . This ring, she said'was] in the°posses sion of our ancestor, Lady Alicia Crossby, who has bequeathed to us the -history attached to it. To her it descended from an obscure branch of the:family, which had :been of ancient origin, but from civil wars, and a variety of :circumstances, their estates\ had been forfeited and the race, decayed and im poverished, had retired into the seclusion of private life. One of the branches was a Sir ...
OUR WINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 July 1867
OUR WINES. It behoves us in view of the check we must receive in our career of progress by the with drawal of Imperial Expenditure, to turn our attention to every branch of industry that promises to be remunerative, and is suitable to the conditions of the colony. Among all the Australian colonies, none perhaps is so well adapted for the cultivation of the vine as West Australia. Even under the present rude system of cultivation, it thrives-'and yields a handsome return to.the grower,. wvhether the fruit be converted into raisins or wine. We are quite sure if the proprietors of some of our large vineyards would go to the expense of introducing from Germany. men accustomed to the cultivation of the vine, and skilled in wine making, it would not only add considerably to their profits, but be of great advantage to the colony. The prin cipal market for Australian wines is India, and we are far more favorably circumstanced for supplying the market than either of our neighbors. As bearing...
To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 20 July 1867
To the Editor of Tlhe Herald. SIR,-. Will you permit me to offer through your columns a few remarks on passing events; especially on such as are brought prominently under my .notice in the pages of the public Journals,. The subject at present occupying the public mind, to the exclusion of almost every other, is the disastrous intelligence from the settle ment on the North West Coast. There can be but one opinionjabout the question, as to whom blame attaches that relief was not afforded earlier. No justification can be offered for the dilitoriness displayed by the Government. Long ago there was just and reasonable grounds for concluding that some disaster had occurred to the Emma and New Perseverance, and it was the bounden duty of the Govern ment to have dispatched a vessel to ascertain what had happened. The miserable attempt made by'fhe Inquirer to prove the Government blameless in thie matter, has met the contempt that so flagrant a prostitution of honest Journ alism richly deser...

To the Editor of The Herald.. sIR,-. I ain one of the four Sentry Boxes which are placed on the ground inside the Establishment at Fremantle, and I must say that I feel. myself getting something the worse for wear. Time was that whilst sporting a new coat of paint, and with a far projecting frame to stand upon, I could defy both rain and wind. But ?no? alas I so dhanged am I that, (though I can still manage to keep off the rain pretty well) I am but badly able to contend against the wind, and have been thrown down three times already this season by day to the great injury of my entire frame, and to the disfiguring of my countenance, whilst my capabilities of enduring a storm by night, entirely depends upon the weight of the sentry by whom I am occupied, and as it is on his weight I have to depend I often regret that Big Barney is not a sentry. Neither I, nor any of my companions was ever heard to complain of bad treatment, no matter how bad such treatment may be. In fact we act enti...
