Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. With reference to a telegram, dated Lon- don, January 23rd, and stating that Sir W. F. C. Robinson had been appointed to suc- ceed Sir Harry St. George Ord as Governor of Western Australia, we are enabled to give some further information. It is no secret that when His Excellency Sir Harry Ord was appointed to Western Australia it was on the distinct understanding that he should not be called upon to prolong his stay beyond a certain time. When that time, however, had expired, His Excellency ] felt no inclination to leave a colony in the government and welfare of which he had al- j ready begun to feel a very considerable interest ; and he determined to remain. Af- fairs, however, of a private nature necessi- tated the return of _ Lady Ord to Europe, and sinee her ladyship's arrival in England, His Excellency has heard that the same business matter requires his own presence. His Excellency therefore asked to be reliev- ed of his official duties, an...

Exploratio[?]. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] April 9. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 January 1880

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, P.R.G.S. [Continued.} April 9.   My brother and I made a start this morning for Beagle Bay. We had not travelled more than half a mile when we found it necessary to alter our course on account of a difficult man- grove creek. So we bore E.N.E. for a couple of miles before again attempting to cross it, which we managed to do at last, with some little trouble. The creek was 3 feet deep, and salt. Three miles farther on I climbed a tree and saw Beagle Bay a short distance ahead. We soon reached the sandhills. Two pearling boats wera in the Bay, lying about two miles from the shore, and on the highest sandhill I made a fire as a signal, and discharged my rifle, but without any success in attracting the attention of the crews. After a time several natives came up who could speak broken Eng- lish ; they showed us some water, and we made tea, returning afterwards to the beach. The nati...

We contradicted one of these state- ments on the authority .of the Director of Public Works,-a statement which appeared to be rather too flagrant to pass over unno- ticed ; but we have not the slightest inten- tion of opening our columns to any contro- versy on the subject.

Country Letters. GERALDTON, Jan. 21. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

(Sflmtrg jettes. GERALDTON, Jan. 21. The number of aspirants for political hon- ors in this district has dwindled down to two. Mr. Logue I hear does not intend to contest the battle for legislative honors. By the Express you will see that our late mem- ber has been influentially ' requisitioned ' to again represent our distraict and promises to oppose the introduction of Responsible Gov- ernment. He is not however to have it all his own way as Mr. Henry Gray has ap- peared in the field, and is making a vigorous canvass. But as one is for, and the other against, Responsible Government, there is little doubt as to which will be re- turned, for, let the papers say what they will, the people of the Victoria district are decidedly opposed to the introduction of Responsible Government at any cost. Grain is being brought into Geraldton in considerable quantity, and if one half the anathemas uttered by the men who bring it, when floundering through the few miles of sand, had any effect-the ...

POLITICAL MEETING AT YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

POLITICAL MEETING A T YORK. On Thursday evening, the 29th ulto., Mr. Richard W. Hardey addressed the electors at the York Mechanics' Institute. Mr. Jos. T. Monger-the late member for the district occupied the chair, and having made a few in- troductory remarks, claimed the attention of the meeting while Mr. Hardey propounded his views on the various questions now so largely affecting the future of the colony. The attend- ance was fair, and the speaker was listened to with marked attention. Mr. HARDEY on rising said : Electors of York -It affords me great pleasure to now be able to meet you personally, and to speak to you at some little length with regard to matters which are of great interest to the colony generally and to this district in particular. Before proceed- ing further, I will say I am to a certain extent a stranger to you, or, at least, to some of you, as I do not reside in the district.: but I have known you for years, and if you do not know me personally you at least kn...

NOTES FROM YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

NOTES FROM YORK. BY PETER SIMPLE. The weather is still very hot, and there are not wanting a few are inclined to believe in the prognostication of Professor Grimmer, and go so far even as to. say that they believe the planet and the sun have already come into conjunction and that the caloric influence of the latter is consequently increased ; be that as it may, the heat for some time past has been excessive. Your contemporary the Herald has given an immense amount of offence by its article of the 17th, inst. and a number of people are most indignant at the aspersions cast upon the elec- tors and the canvassing gentlemen to whom the I writer refers. To assert that two thirds of the names attached to Mr. Hamersley's requisition are what the Herald terms them, is a positive insult to the electors, and has done more damage to the chances of Mr. Hardey than any amount of writing or speaking on the part of Mr. Ham- ersley's supporters. Any way, Mr. Hamersley is respected by the greater nu...

SPORTING NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

SPORTING NOTES. It is now some time since my notes have appeared in your columns, but the fact is that since the Guildford meeting on Boxing Day there has been very little to write about. The stewards of the W. A. Turf Club may congratulate themselves on the number of entries received cn Monday last and, on glancing down your columns I should say that every race would be well contested. The Maiden Plate would be a gift to The Friar, were he in the same condition as when he performed in Guildford ; but there is a screw loose about the ' great gun,' who has been lame and thrown out of work for some days, which must interfere with his chance, although he may still recover suffi- ciently to run one mile and a half. Tim Whiffler and Gulnare also should run well for this race, but White Hawk can have no chance, as he does not appear to have quite got over his lameness. For the Town Plate there are four en- tries, all good animals, but should Basblano start he ought to win easily, although...

DONGARRA, Jan. 20. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

DONGARRA, Jan. 20. Through the efforts of Mrs. Moore and her friends, we are at last to take rank with the other districts of the colony, and have a public build- ing of our own, in aid of which a concert was given on Thursday the 15th, inst. and a 'Christy Minstrel ' entertainment on the following day, both of which passed off with the most com- plete success. Several donations have been fiven, and the committee are going to apply to lr. Geo. Shenton of Perth to grant them a small piece of land on which to erect the building ; and as he is the largest land proprietor here and well known for his liberality, there is little doubt that he will gladly comploy. The name of the society has not yet been decided, but the object is for the recreation and mental improvement of the young men of the place. Every one must admit the importance of finding, and if possible of supplying, suitable amusement for our young folks ; and if this society can induce the younger men of the district to rest ...

WHO WOULD GET THE BEST OF THE BARGAIN? TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880

WHO WOULD GET THE BEST OF THE BARGAIN? To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST AUSTBALIAN. ¡SIB.-.Now tnat people are crying out their loudest for that thing which-they tell us the country must have to.save.it from utter rnin, it might be as well to strip off the * election placards ' and unmask the real* cause of the present agitation for Responsible Government, and also to review the probable results which the success of the ' League* party at the com- ing elections would entail. Let us in the first place look at the reasons which they give for their activity. They say they want Responsible Government-because the Imperial Government is obstructive to pro- gress, because our Governor is arbitrary, and his officials idiotic, because the people's money is recklessly squandered and because the land laws are rotten ; and, by charges such as these, the agitators are trying to work up the general public to a pitch of enthusiastic patriotism. Possibly a few of the would-be Cromwells such as Mr. W. S. P...

THE VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, FES. 3,1880. THE QUESTION BEFORE THE COUNTRY. THE desirability or otherwise of constitu- tional change has now occupied, off and on, the attention of members of Council and of certain sections of the community for the last six years and more. The suggestion so constantly, and perhaps rather imprudently, made by the framers of our present consti- tution, that it must he considered as only a stepping-stone to more advanced and elabo- rate parliamentary institutions, first gave definite shape to vague and ambitious long- ings, which, before that, were never seriously entertained. Enthusiasm for * progress,' bred of the liberal WELD Administration, mental intoxication produced by the success of a policy which first gave a real onward impetus to the colony, first led the people to dream of better things in the future ; the personal advocacy of a clever and impetuous man, eager to carry out the projects he had formed for the advancement of the colony...
