Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880
êtmxoml fjí oU$. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We are authorised by Mr. E. A. Stone to state, in reference to a paragraph that ap- peared in the Herald, that he received no intimation, direct or indirect, that the elec- tions would not take place during his term of office. The appointment, he informs us, was offered to and accepted by him uncondi- tionally-although he had good reason for believing that the elections would not come on for some months. Mr. Henry Thomas Wrenfordsly, the new- ly appointed Chief Justice, was called to the bar in 1863, and practised for many years on the old Norfolk circus, it as also at Norwich, Great Yarmouth, and Ipswich sessions. He acted for a short time, in 1868, as junior counsel for the Privy Council office, when the foreign cattle market question was under consideration of a committee of the House of Commons. Was duly approved by the Lord Chancellor, and thereby appointed in 1876, to act as Deputy County Court Judge for the metropolitan districts of Maryleb...
CRICKET. GUILDFORD v. NEW NORCIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880
CRICKET. GUILDFORD V. NEW NORCIA. This match was played at Guildford on Saturday last, 31st ulto. The Guildfordians went first to the wickets, and performed a great deal better than was expected, Mr« Fred. Read heading the score with a well put-together twenty, the total score amount- ing to 64. The fielding of the New Nomans was not quite equal to the form they showed both at Perth and at the Mission, but their surprising quickness frequently called forth the plaudits of the spectators. Jackymarra and Mr. Lefroy (the captain) bowled well. The New Norcians made 71, of which our old friend Blurton made 41.-an excellent piece of cricket, as, not only was his defence first rate but he drove the ball well, and all ways full and fairly with the face of the bat, his wrist play being so strong that he can hit a ball farther than men twiee his weight and strength. An adjournment was made for dinner, between the two innings, when ample justice was done to Mrs. Wheatley's cuisine. Guildford d...

WHAT THOSE WHO HAVE RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT THINK Of IT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880
WHAT THOSE WHO HAVE RESPON- SIBLE GOVERNMENT THINK OE IT. TO; TUE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,--In-view of the question of constitu- tional change which is likely to occupy the attentiorf'óf the electors of this colony during the nexfc:few days, it should afford our colon- ists, I think-, a salutary lesson to observe the fruits of what is known as ' Responsible Gov- ernment' in the sister colonies. The following extracts, culled at random from the files of the i leading journals of some of those colonies, ' ought to convince every thoughtful man that a form of Government upon which the will of a free people can be brought to bear, surely and quickly, may be completely neutralised by the particular exercise of that power, and become burdensome and ruinous to the best interests of the country : [Australasian, Dec. 1, 1877.] I " One by one the illusions of our youth are ruthlessiy torn from us. There was a time when, seated at the feet of fiscal reformers in the old country, we ...
Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] April 28. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 3 February 1880
Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] April 28. I left instructions this morning with Mr. Hill to return for eight miles and hunt up the natives who had not yet made their appear- ance. My brother Matthew and I then started on alone together, steering South-East through splendid open country, till we reached the coast about ten miles from the camp. Here we found a fine spring of fresh water in a clump of fallen trees; the tide, when high, flows all around it. I left a note at this spring, ordering the party to camp there to-morrow, and at 1 o'clock we went on again steering about S.E. till we came to a smaller spring, six miles farther on, which had some good water in it. Three miles be- yond this we camped for the night without water, keeping watch till the moon went down. We saw several natives to-day. As soon as they saw us they ran away for some distance, and then watched till we passed out of sight. Th...

RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT AND OUR LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
- ej RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT AND E OUR LANDS. ti SIR,-The advocates of Responsible Govern-, ment put forward as one of the principal advantages which they say will be gained by the proposed change-the uncontrolled power to dispose of the land of the colony, with the fallacy added that we should be able mortgage it for the prosecution of public works, which at present, they say, we cannot do. As the Council's regulations have been sanctioned from time to time by the Secretary of State ; as the whole proceeds of sale and rents of land go into the general revenue ; as the revenue has already been mortgaged for the payment of loans and interest, it will be seen that for all in- tents and purposes the colony already has the land. What is there, then, that could reasonably be wanted, or could be of any use to the colony, the Imperial Government would not sanction ? Have those advocates of Responsible Govern- ment who want the sole control of the land any particular scheme that the Secretar...

THE 'LEAGUE ' AND THEIR NOMINEES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
a THE « LEAGUE ' AND THEIR NOMINEES. £ To THE EDITOR. ti SIR, - I notice that the Catholic Record has touched your Fremantle contemporary in a very sore place. The Record of the 29th. ultimo unfortunately ventured to com- ment in"its leading columns upon the chances of -success which awaits some of the candidates.at the approaching election, and, in doing so, committed the unpardonable offence of commenting adversely upon one or two of the Reform'* League's nominees, whom the Berala has taken under its protecting wing. Your con- temporary could not, of course, brook this treat- ment of its proteges ; and on Saturday it indulges in some highly complimentary remarks upon the manner in which the Record is conducted. " It would be a very great mistake"-so the Herald says-" to suppose that the remarks which have " recently appeared in the Catholic Record favor " able to Mr. Hamersley at York, and un . * favorable to Dr. Scott at Perth and Mr. Higham " at Fremantle, represent the opinions...
A COMPLAINT FROM THE VASSE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
A COMPLAINT FROM THE VASSE. f &lt; To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR, -Knowing your readiness at all times to assist in remedying any public evil, I would, through the medium of your valuable paper, request permission to direct the attention of the Busselton Municipal Council to the ex- tremely dangerous nature of the bars placed in the principal street of the town. The roadway has recently been re-metalled in the centre, and in order to compel vehicles to travel on that part, bars have been erected at the sides, but in such positions as to render them positive " traps for travellers.'* At night it is impossible to see them, being unpainted and having no light or lantern attached. The other night I rode full into one of these bars, narrowly escaping being thrown, and my- self and horse seriously injured. Surely the bars should be whitened, and at night bear a lantern. * Prevention is better than cure,'-as the Municipal Council would soon discover to its cost, in the ...
SECOND DAY—THURSDAY, FEB. 5. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
SECOND DAY-THURSDAY, FEB. 5. Yesterday the weather was much more enjoyable than on the first day-a genial but not intolerable heat prevailing, tempered by a refreshing sea-breeze, which rendered locomotion bearable. As a result of this agreeable change, the attendance on the course was much more numerous than on Wednesday. His Excellency and suite ar- rived on the ground at ten minutes before one. The first race was the LADIES' PUSSE, of 30 sovs, 1| miles ; one event. Mr. M. Brown's b.h. Sir Roger, blue and white (G. Towton) . 1 Mr. A. G. Twine's b.h.

This order was continued until getting upon the low ground by the river side, up to which time it was anybody's race. Upon reaching the straight, White Hawk nearly ran out, and her chance was gone. A splendid race now took place, and although Sir Roger got out of his stride, he re...
Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
(©ííaáonaf Jiotes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. When making certain remarks in our last issue upon Mr. Parker's speech at the Town Hall, we inadvertently fell into an error which in justice to Mr. Parker it is our duty to cor- rect. We said that the course of ' reckless extravagance' of which Mr. Parker complain- ed must have been entered upon since the session of 1879, because during that session a committee of which Mr. PARKER was a member, after careful investigation of the ac- counts, recorded its opinion that ' on the whole, due economy had been observed.' We overlooked the fact that this committee was only dealing with the expenditure of 1S7S, and had no information before it with regard to the expenditure of 1879. Mr. Parker hav- ing brought this to onr notice we at once confess our mistake, and we also are ready to allow that the words ' on the whole' im ported into the verdict of the committee upon the expenditure of 1878 enabled members to agree to the report who would have been un-...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 6, 1880. MR. HARDEY AT YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
THE ViGiLANS ET AUDAX. PERTE:, FRIDAY, FED. e, isso. MR. HARDEY AT YORK. In our last issue we gave a report of the speech which Mr. HABDEY addressed on Thursday week to the electors of York. "We were told on "Wednesday last that this speech " redounds to the credit of Mr. HAB- DEY as a future statesman"-a discovery that we certainly should not have made ourselves. It is unfortunate that in "Western Aus- tralia, on account of the smallness of our numbers, it is difficult to criticize adversely the speeches or the action, even of public men, without risk of giving personal offence And this, we fear, when the time comes for entering upon party government,-unless Bndcr very different circunibtauees as regards population from those that obtain at pre. sent,-will be a serious factor towards embit- tering political strife. "We say this because when, as at the present time, we are often obliged to differ from and strongly condemn statements put forth and views enunciated by candidates for l...
A LESSON FROM NEW SOUTH WALES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 February 1880
A LESSON FROM NEW SOUTH ti WALES. y To THE EDITOR. ! SIR,-In perusing a very interesting vol- ume entitled " The Poets and Prose-Writers of New South Wales," edited by Mr. Bar- ton, barrister-at-law, I came upon some pas- sages from an admirable address issued in January, 1865, by Sir James Martin (then Premier and Attorney General of New South Wales and now Chief Justice of that colony) to the electors of various con- stituencies with which he was politically connected. No one who is free from politi- cal prejudice can read this address without admiration, and the appended extract ap- pears to me so singularly apropos to existing circumstances in this colony that I venture to request you to give it insertion in the West Australian. In this passage it will be observed, Sir James Martin reviews the course of political affairs in New South Wales from the intro- duction of Responsible Government; and the extract is one which the advocates of constitutional change in this colony would d...
