HOLLOWAY'S PILLS. TO THE EDITOR OF "THE ARGUS." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 December 1874

HOLLOWAYS PILLS TO THE EDITOB OF " THE ARGUS. Sir,-Permit me through the medium of your valuable journal to waru and to direct the attention of the public to a gross outrage which is being perpetrated in the shape of spurious imitations of Holloway's Pills and Ointment, which are being vended as the genuine article. Detectives are at work endeavouring to discover the originators of the fraud. As yet they have been unsuccessful, though it has been pretty well ascer- tained that the said imitation is manu- factured in the colony, and is not imported. The spurious resemble the genuine articles only in external appear- ance and the manner in which packed up. I have had both the pills and the ointment analysed, and find that the pills contain opium iu a rather excessive degree, but the ointment is simply lard, with a slight trace of turpentine. To distiuguish the genuine from the false, look at the pamphlet which accompanies each box and pot, and see if the words "Holloway's Pills and Oi...

FORREST'S RECEPTION. AT FREMANTLE. (By our Special Reporter.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 December 1874

FORRESTS RECEPTION. AT FREMANTLE. (By our Special Reporter.) No sooner was the intelligence of Mr. Forrest's arrival in South Australia re- ceived in this colony than a movement was set an foot, in influential quarters, to accord him and his gallant band a fitting reception upon their return to the colony whence they started. The enthusi- astic reception the party had received ia South Australia tended to increase the ardour of their fellow-colonists, and it was felt, that, whatever might be the re- sult of the expedition, from a scientific point of view, or in the interest of colo- nisation, the tact remained that Mr. Forrest and his party could, at any 'rate, claim credit for having travelled over hundreds of miles of territory previously unexplored except by blacks ; and in doing this they performed good service to the cause of science. Weariness, anx- iety, and absolute privation-the lot of all explorers-they had to endure, and. it was the duty of their fellow-colonists to shcW ...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 December 1874

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-In your paper of the 11th instant, a paragraph appeared, headed, "Fatal Accident," which contained a circumstantial account of the (alleged) death of a daughter of mine. The place where the accident occurred, its na- ture, the injuries received, &c, are minutely given. To members of my family, residing in distant parts of the colony, this announcement will occasion, unless anticipated, extreme distress ; for which the contradiction of the report in a subsequent paper will prove a poor reparation. As neither of my daughters* met with any ac- cident, and as no corresponding injury occurred to any one in Guildford, affording room for such a mistake, the W. A. Times haa unhappily been giving circulation to a pure invention of a Very cruel kind. I am sure this - will be a ' matter, of deep regret to. you ; yet I oannot ' help expressing my feeling, that when so seri- ous an - accident is reported upon mere '* hear- say," and the seat of the accident is within ...

SHARK'S BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 December 1874

SHARK'S BAY. W» learn by the latest account« from Shark's Bay, dated Nov. 8, that pearling was then very .koa. but that the lew who had Malay divers were doing well. The barometer was high, but.the temperature lower than usual at the season ; strong southerly winds had been pre« valent. The Government cutter Pearl arrived Nov. 5, and was expected to sail on the 14th for Cossack. Mr. S. W. Oldham was passenger in her for the Gascoigne River, where he proposes to make a settlement. If the views of this gentleman, as to the capabilities of the abori- gines for civilization, should prove correct, a new era will dawn on the northern districts of this colony; but the reports of travellers, from the time when Messrs. Gregory and Boe first traced the course of that river, represent the natives of the district as fiercer and more dangerous than in most parts of the colony. We understand that the Government cutter was in a very leaky state, and would require to be laid up for repairs on her a...

Sft-e Étesteni australian ©tures. SOLÜM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAîTSEC^MBEXÎsTÎRTé. Ultimate responsibility to the people is what is to be understood by the term Responsible G-overnment. We have heard it stated, more than once lately, that there is sufficient responsi- bility, under the present form of G-o- vernment, in this colony. Let us see what this responsibility amounts to, and where it is to be found. We have a Governor and Executive and Legislative Councils. To whom or to what are they responsible ? They are of course responsible to the dictates of conscience ; thus our second question answers itself, but a satisfactory reply to our first will prove, we think, more diffi- cult to find. The Governor is responsible to no one in the colony ; his responsi- bility is solely to the Crown, represented by the Secretary of State for the Colo- nies ; there is no original compact, which is the basis of responsibility, either expressed or understood, between bim and those whom he governs ;...

At the Town Council Election there were ' present the chairman, the clerk, and three ratepayers, who, alter waiting till halt an hour beyond tho appointed time, pioceeded to re elect the preseut chairman, tur the ensuing year, and to nominate the following gentlemen as councillors:-Mr. A.

WOOL REPORTS. Sydney, 23rd October, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 December 1874

WOOL REPORTS. Sydney, 23rd October, 1874. Messrs. Fanning and Griffiths report the probability that owing to retarded receipts of the new clip the shipments for London Febru- ary sales will be on a limited scale, and re- ports of small stocks in Europe, encourage those to ship their wools direct, who, some time since, were intent upon selling in this market. The experience of the past forbids any at- tempts to speak of the probable ruling prices next year; but it should be remembered that during the latt two years no benefit has been reaped by early shipments, and with the pro- spective substantial increase of supplies, a similar occurrence may take place next year, and show that all who realize here will in the long run find it the best and safest plan.' On whatever side we look we are forced to the conclusion that it is as important to the wool-grower, as it is ta the consumer, that the Australian wool trade should be established on a broader aad moro secure basis. To all acquaint...

There must have been at least 120 per- sons utting dowe to table. Seldom has the Town Hall presented a more' chann- ing appearance. The taste displayed * in its ornamentation was quite artistic. From the ceiling a profusion of flags, in- cluding the ensigns of the most powerful nations of the earth, drooped gracefully, due regard having been paid to color in their grouping. The platform and the front of the gallery were also very pret- tily festooned, the centre being occupied by a splendid trophy of silken flags, sur- mounted by the simple but appropriate floral device " Welcome"-that on the platform being flanked on either side by the initial letter of the name of the gal- lant leader, of the expedition, tastefully worked within a floral device.
