The détendant had received notice to quit the premises, and also to pay amount ot arrears of rent. He failed in so doing, and subsequently put in a claim of £7 16s. tor certain items, to be deducted from rent i hen* due, which he (Mr. Burt), as the attorney tor the plaintiff, consented to allow if the balance was paid and possession of the pre- mises delivered forthwith. Although promised, it was not performed, and hence the action was brought to recover the full amount claimed. The offer had been made to Mr. Compton by Mr. Burt himself.

On Wednesday last, tue 25th inst., a large Good Templar gathering took place in Newcastle, several members from the York and Northam lodges being present on the occasion. The general public, as well as ihetemplars, seemed to participate in the holiday, and all certainly enjoyed tbemselres thoiougftly. During the day there was a variety of old English sports on the Newcastle cricket club grouud, consisting ot-cricket, football, jumping in sacks, loot racing «fee., and about 5 p.m., the Good Templars mustered in re- galia and inarched with flag i fl.iug, to the premises of Mr. Ciinrles Monger ; thence they made a circuit of the town. About six o'clock, upwards of one hun- dred and fifty sat down to tea, under a sp.iekun arbour, .specially erected on Mr. Monger's grounds ; and after the first in- stalment had partaken of the good things provided, a socond party, nearly as numerous, took their places at the table.

oí al a ui> tât-itiral» Abbival of a Japanese Taoupa.-T-In the present dearth of public amusement- in Perth it is refreshing to note the arrival of a troup of Japanese jugglers and acrobats, consisting of nine pertormers, each of whom is reported inimitable in his particular line'of business. Judging from the tone ot the reports which the troupe have elicited tr.m the press ot the vari, ous countries they have visited, the metropoli- tan public may anticipate a treat of an un- usually interesting and sensational character on the evenings ot Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday next, 2. 3, and 4 Dec., when the ne*ly arrived artists propose to make their first appearance before a Western ' Australian audience.

The Western Australian Times.     SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1874 We cannot doubt, that much inconve- nience must often he consequent on the adoption, by our little Legislative Coun- cil, of the forms and customs of the English Parliament. Those which have grown with its growth and become vene- rable by age may, naturally and wisely, be retained by it, but, why a newly, and very differently-constituted Assembly, should be cumbered with them, we are unable to say. It is the dictum of one of our greatest parliamentary chiefs that every Assembly "is fully competent to the exercise of those powers which con- cern its own orders and jurisdiction," and still more, we may say, to arrange its own forms to suit its own necessities. Hence it- appears to us that the cere- mony of committing a Bill is one that would be more honoured in the breach than the observance, and that in so small an assembly, as the Legislative Council of this colony, there can ...

DIED. ELSEGOOD.-At Perth, on the 16th No- vember, after a short and painful illness William Elsegood, aged 55 years. He left   a wife and large family to mourn his loss.   Another of the original colonists of Wes- tern Australia has been called to his long home; one of those who, like the late, Mr. Brockman, we can ill afford to lose. Mr. Edward Hamersley, a B.A. of Trinity   College, Cambridge, arrived in this colony   during the Government of Sir James Stir- ling, in the Shepherd (1836 7?), and brought large capital with him. He soon became one of the largest landowners in the colony. We believe his estates, if not the largest, are the most valuable, and few men have done more to advance its interests than he has   done. He was a member of the old nomi- nee Council, and died at the ripe age of 64 years. He has left himself well represented   by his children, two of who are in our pre- sent Representative...
