Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 January 1880

From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. I arrived at Cossack, Feb. 3rd, 1879, after a very stormy passage from Fremantle, and at once proceeded to collect the horses which dif- ferent settlers had promised to furnish, as their contribution towards the expenses of the expe- dition. Having got them together, I moved on with my party to the De Grey River station, which we reached on the 20th, and this station being the actual starting point of our journey we there made our final preparations, and com- pleted the packing of our stores and provisions, receiving much kind assistance from Mr. An- derson. All was ready by the 25th, and on that day we left the De Grey River, travelling in a North-Easterly direction to Condon, where we camped for the night. My party consisted of Mr. F. Hill, second in command, and of Messrs. John Campbell, James Carey, Matthew Forrest, and Arthur Hicks, besides the natives 'Pierre' and 'Dower' We  ...

Occasional [?]otes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 January 1880

li gamonal Kotes. 'LOCAL AND GEWBBAL. We are indebted to the courtesy of the secretary of the South Australian National Rifle Association, for an advauce 'proof of a printed report of a meeting of the Association held at Adelaide on the 9th. inst. (Lieut Colonel Wood in the chair), at which we learn that " the Secretary produced some files of the West Australian, and drew the at- tention of the Council to a letter of Captain Hillman, commandingthe Perth Metropolitan Volunteers, and the Editor of the Austra- lian's remarks thereon, comparing the shout- ing at matches there with the firing of the S.A.N.R.A. The Secretary further stated that he had communicated with Captain Hillman by wire, and that a challenge to fire a match would probably be accepted. It was then decided, on the proposition of the Secretary, seconded by Captain H. Ferguson, that a challenge be sent to Captain Hillman, Perth M.R.V., to fire a friendly match on the following terms, via. :-That the com- petitors shall ...

Country Letters. GREENOUGH, Jan. 13. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 January 1880

ítatrp Jete. GREENOUGH, Jan. 13. Why should I not talk ' election ' as well as others who know as little, and possibly care less, than myself. By the Express you will see that some of Mr. Maley's friends have been trotting him out, and it is to be regretted that they have not met with better success. But as none of the requisitinnists ever expected to induce him to come forward they will not be disappointed. Mr. Maley is a man with plenty of common sense-" not often found in the neighbourhood,"-and knows exactly what he can, and what he can- not do. As he says in his reply, his place for the present is outside the House, where his influence as greatly felt for good. Many families are almost dependent on Mr. Maley for the bread which they eat, and I think he has arrived at a very wise decision when he( determines to stand by the people at home until times mend. Mr. L. C. Burges has many friends who would be glatl to see him in Council, and he is spoken of by the Express as the ' comi...

Ladies Column. THE TRUE STORY OF 'GEORGE ELIOT'S' LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 January 1880

ítómn. THE TRUE STORY QF 'GEORGE ELIOT'S' LIFE. To -women, the story of the life of ' George Eliot/-incontéstably the most wonderful wo- man of the century-mußt possess keen interest, and now that she has definitely declared that the world shall be chawned with no more fresh work from her pen, now that her wonderfnl genius and marvellous gifts will no longer be used for the instruction and delight of the civilized world, it seems to be a suitable time to give some short account of a singular and most interesting career. The women of West- ern Australia who, in common with men and women of every civilized nation, have perused her works with eager delight, will no doubt .welcome correct information with regard to a .woman whose everyday existence, notwith- standing the fact that she is the greatest and most renowned novelist of the day, is as hidden from the mass of her readers as though she .were a dweller in the heart of Africa.

[?]arm and Station. THE ERADICATION OF POISON PLANT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 January 1880

Farm and Station THE ERADICATION OF POISON PLANT. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-I see that a gentleman signing himself ' Cosmopolite ' and writing in the Inquirer news- paper, doubts the efficacy of salt for the' pur- pose of destroying the poison plant because ' the indigenous poison plant is to he found growing most luxuriantly on tracts of land where the proportions of natural deposits of salt are most prominent.' I am a bushman myself, and shuuld have described the favourite haunts of the poi- son plant very differently. But this I may state that, ' Cosmopolite,' notwithstanding, I am able to give testimony to the value of Mr. Hamers- ley's discovery-though discovery it can rarely be called, as it has been known by some before. I have seen the salt applied-seen the plants gradually wither and die, and on Mr. Hamers ley's own land have seen acres of poison plant completely dead, without a sign of reviving, long after the application had been made. If Mr. Hooley's pla...

Sib.-In glancing at the last issue of the Inquirer newspaper my eye caught in one of the leading articles, a glimpse of words put to- gether with such unwonted grammatical pre- cision and connected sense, that I was ac- tually induced to read the article through, and found it to be an extremely interesting and well-written paper on the sanitary or rather as we ai'e now taught to call it-the . insanitary5 condition of Fremantle. It refers also to sanitary matters in Perth, and suggests means to provide a pure water supply for both towns. The suggestion with regard to Perth comes from the Director of Public Works, scarcely a suggestion, more like an infa...

A COMPARISON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 January 1880

A COMPARISON. j To the Editor of the West Australian-. J sir,-So much has been said aad written re- cently on the lau!, question that I must apolo- gise for trespassing on your space to a slight extent. Air. Brockman is of opinion that we are not paying full value for our runs ; but a little in- quiry would have shown that gentleman that we pay a higher rent for our pastoral land with all its drawbacks, (poison, etc,) than holders of the best runs in Victoria. For instance, in that colony a run of say 12,000 acres is estimated to carry 12,000 sheep, upon which there is (unless the land regulations are altered) a poll tax of 3d. per head-£150 per annum, or £12 10s. for the run of a thousand sheep, and this on a splendid clear country free from scrub and poison ; while in this colony it takes on an average 12,000 acres to keep 1000 sheep, for which we pay £12; and our losses from poison will probably amount to £20 more. So that I maintain that we pay a much higher rcut than is paid in...

éi|loraíiou. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.'] March 21. Although in splendid feed the horses strayed away during the night. We got them back how- ever, and made a start by 8 o'clock, travelling in a North-Easterly direction over fine grassy plains for about twelve miles, to a native well, where we halted at 10 o'clock. The mosquitoeB again were pitiless ; if they get any worse, I really don't know what we shall do. March 22. Off at 6 o'clock, and followed the line of ti- trées which here runs parallel to the coast. Ten miles of an E.N.E. course over country well grassed and lightly wooded brought us to .a native spring and small pool, where we camp- ed. Fresh tracks of natives were seen around, and from the numerous paths branching out in all directions from the spring,, I am satisfied that its waters must be permanent. At night hordes of mosquitoes again torment- ed us. We left the camp and sought refuge in the b...

In another column we pubUsh. an official letter from the Commissioner of Railways to His Excellency the Governor, together with another addressed by the Supebin texdent of Roads to the Commissioner, on the subject of jarrah piles. Mr. Higman brings forward evidence, which, to his mind is conclusive, that squared piles are better suited to resist the attacks of the worm than round ones, and Mr. Thomas considers the evidence which Mr. Higman has adduced ' undoubted proof ' that he was right, and that we were -wrong. Su;h being Mr. Thomas'opinion, we gladly publish his let- ter and enclosure for the information of the public,-whom he doubtless thinks we have misled ; and we do so with the greater satis, faction seeing that the contents of Mr. Hig man's letter in reality bear us out in all that for which we ever contended.

A BURDEN OF VAGUE TALKING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 January 1880

A BURDEN OF VAGUE TALKING. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-I really think it behoves those who have some prudence left,-while this ' reform ' craze is maddening their fellow-colonists-no longer to sit still and twiddle their thumbs, but to oppose a little common sense to all the sounding talk which is made to do duty for argument. When I say sounding talk, I do not mean to assart that there has been no fire to cause the smoke, but that the process which the reform party recommends as the best to adopt for the purpose of extinguishing this fire is just as likely as not to fan the flames. The volume of smoke has been large of late, and has been chiefly produced by what I call ti la Swinburne ' a burden of vague talking,' very vague, and a very great burden for those to listen to and read whose prejudices and wishes do not naturally incline them to eagerly accept whatever can feed the one, or give hope to the other. It is surprising how easy it is to make people believe almo...

ROUND v. SQUARE, JARRAH ïlLEti. Department of Public Worîcs, Pertht 19íft January. 1880. To His Excellency Major General Sir Harry St. George Ord, R.E.» K.C.M.G., CB. In an un-omcial minute which 1 drew np some twelve months ago. and which has since been published, I stated that in my opinion square pure, tarred and charred, would last quite as long, if not longer* than the round. I was not, however, aware that there existed, in the colony, undoubted proofs of such being the case, until I received the accompanying re- port from Mr. Hignian, Cie Superintendent of Roads. The Preston Bridge is, as Your Excellency is aware, built in exactly the same position-at the mouth of the river-as the railway viaduct now in course of construction over the Swan, and therefore no better example could be ad- duced in support of my adopting square piles for this structure, even had it not been, as I have shown, impossible, considering their height, to have framed piers of sufficient strength and stabi...
