TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 18 December 1874

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Through your columns I wish to make known a case which has caused no little inter- est, and, as might be expected in so small a community, engendered a vast amount of ill feeling in this district. I write this solely to bring the matter forward, hoping it may elicit some discussion, and result in the permanent set- tlement of the question-" bury, or not bury." It appears as though our clergyman was desi- rous of emulating some of his injudicious brother clergymen in the old country, thus creating a schism in the Church instead of unity.     The Order of Good Templers have, I believe a rule or custom, that, in the death of any   member of the order, they shall, if approved by the members and chief of the order, read an address over the remains of any member, after the burial service has been performed and the minister has left the ground. During the late epidemic many cases have proved fatal, and amongst them a young man of t...

COMPLIMENTARY BALL TO MR. FORREST AND HIS PARTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 22 December 1874

COMPLIMENTARY BALL TO MR. FOR- REST AND HIS PARTY. On Thursday evening last, (December 17.) a public ball in honor of Mr. Forrest and his party was given in the Town Hall. Tbe brilliant assemblage on the occasion was an appropriate climax to the demonstrations con- nected with the brave explorers' reception on their return, and we aie quite sure it must have been gratifying to them. No expense or effort had been spared by the committee to m .ike the ball what it unquestionably was-a grand success. We have had nothing equal to it in Perth for a long time. The ball-room looked very attractive, the decorations being in excellent taste. Dancing was eommenced about nine o'clock, with a quadrille in which Mr. Forrest had Mrs. Barlee for a partner. Numerous dances followed, the evening's pleasures being well sustained. The laaies, of course, appeared in evening costume,- and, many, if "not most of them, were elegantly dressed. To describe the appearance of the room when the couples began t...

IMMIGRATION. 6 Fetter Lane, Fleet Street, London, E.G., 29th October, 1874. Sir,-I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 13th August, re* questing me to take steps to obtain certain emigrants required by the colony, and forward- ing schedules of nominated emigrants and of applicants for labour. I did not receive authority from the Colonial Office to proceed in the matter till the 26th instant. I have had an interview with the Secretary to the Emigration Commissioners, who assisted me with various forms and Infor* níation, and I hare temporarily engaged an office at the above address w heneo I can com* municate with the persons nominated and their references. I am having handbills printed for distribu- tion stating the inducements offered to emigrants, and am in communication with various societies, and also with private parties, with a view-to obtain-the labour required. It is not probable that the arrangements will be completed in less than three months, b...

RECOGNITION OF MR. FORREST'S SERVICES. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 22 December 1874

RECOGNITION OF MB. FORREST'S SERVICES. TO TBC MMTOB. SIB,-Now that our fellow-colonists have glorified themselves at the expense of Mr, John Forrest by accompanying him in a pro- cession, and making him their bright particu- lar star at a banquet and a ball, will you per- mit me to use your columns in suggestions that his very great services be adequately re- cognised by them. Of #hat use is it to him that he should have been smothered with dust in a procession, stuf- fed with beer, Hambro' sherry, sucking pig, and gentles at a banquet, and induced to pass a sleepless night at a ball at the Town Hall P We paid for our tickets, ate, drank, and danced; and he, like a god from. Olympus, serenely looked on and perhaps shared in the sports ; nnd if he does not suffer /rom head» ache and dyspepsia, thanks to his strong and hearty organisation. But Mr. Forrest ought not to be treated thus.' He has, in the prime of early manhood, made his name known where the English tongue is spoken, his w...

TOODYAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 22 December 1874

TOODYAY At an adjourned licensing meeting held at Newcastle on Monday, the 14th instant, a re- newal of the Messrs. Dempster's yallon license for their store iu the Toodyay Valley was granted by the Newcastle Bench. At the termination of the meeting a numerously and respectably-signed memorial to the Bench was handed in by Mr. Throssell, ot Northam, from j the settlers ot thet district, pointing out the great evils arising from the present issuing of colonial wine licenses, and urging their discon- tinuance. All applications for colonial wine licenses having been decided on the 7th inst., the memorial was considered to have been re- ceived too late tor auy present practical pur- poses. Mr. Throssell, however, on behalf of the mernot iaii>ts, leit the memorial with the Bench, by whom, no doubt, it will be trans- mitted tu'headquarters, with a vitw to putting the authorities there iu possession of public feeling geuerally in regard to those licenses, and in the hope that iuture leg...

PHILADELPHIA EXPEDITION. ; Offices ot the Victorian Commissioners for the Philadelphia Exhibition of Ï876. "/I Melbourne, November 12, Í874. Sir,-1. I do myself the honor to inform you that His Excellency Sir George Bowen has been pleased to issue a commission addressed to the gentlemen named below, " giving (us) authority to ascertain whether united action should be taken by all the Australian colonies to secure their proper representation at the Philadelphia Exhibition of 1876." 2. The Commissioners have adopted the be- lief that it is the desire of the inhabitants of Western Australia that the resources of that colony should be represented in America, the new field of contention, with the like success as has been heretofore achieved in Europe. 3. I may premise tbat it has appeared to the Commissioners desirable that an Intercolonial Exhibition should be held preliminary to that at Philadelphia. 4.

% tetent ^ustmltaa Firnes. SOLUM NON MOTAT GENUS. TÜESDlSrSECE^BER^2VÍ«74. WE are enabled this week to present to our readers two documents, which should be of much interest to all ; the one show- ing what the Emigrant Agent for Wes-, tern Australia, Mr. LAWRENCE, pas been doing in England, and the other, what Western Australia may do, and is ex- pected by others « to do ; and we think what she should do if her people desire that the colony should be known to, and that they 3hould take their place in the world. The only things which Western Aus- tralia requires from without are capital in money and labour. These will only go where a profit on their application may be justly expected ; to attract them both knowledge of the productions of the country is required, and if all other Aus- tralian colonies exhibit theirs, and West Australia does not, she will remain, as in that case she will deserve to be unnoticed. It may be said that we are not to expect immigrants from the United States...

GOOD TEMPLARS FUNERALS. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 22 December 1874

GOOD TEMPLARS' FUNERALS. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,-A letter in the " W. A. Times" of this day, dated Greenough, Dec 5, has attracted my attention. I have also read your owu re- marks thereon. The letter is about the refusal of the clergyman on the Greenough to read the Church of England Burial Service at the fune- ral of a Good Templar because of the intention, on the part of the friends of the deceased, to have a Good Templar's Service in addition to the Church Service. It is quite certain that a great many mem- bers ol tite Church of England iu the various districts of the eolony are also Good Templars, and warmly attached to their order. For this reason this matter is one of primary import- ance, and, as such, I have given to it my best attention, for the matter has been referred to me by the clergyman concerned and aloo by the pa- ties complaining. It is tor me a moat happy circumstance that there exists now in this diocese, under the name of the Standing Committee of the Synod, a bod...

FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 22 December 1874

FIRE. After enjoying immunity from fire for a con- siderable time, Perth was startled on Saturday night by the well-known alarm which denotes that some portion of the city has become subject to the baneful influence of the " devour- ing element." The fire bell at the Barrack Street police station rang out the alarm at about a quarter to 8 o'clock, and the cry of   " fire" soon spread from one end of the town to another. The fire, on inquiry, was found to be in the shop of Mr. Birch, the well-known chemist, in the neighbourhood of the Town Hall. When first observed the flames were issuing from the store-room, or laboratory, at the rear of the premises, and, as everything in the building was of an inflammable nature, it will be readily understood that the excitement was intense. The crowd, usual at such occur- rences, rapidly congregated, and only a few seconds of time elapsed from the time the alarm of fire was given before willing hands were at work to extinguish the fl...

GOVERNOR DU CANE'á FAREWELL We reprint from the Australasian a notice of the farewell speech of Governor Du Cane as containing matter well worthy the consider- ation of our readers at the present time. We bad occasion last week to notice a remarkable gubernatorial address from Canada. We have this week to record a similar address nearer home. Governor Du Cane, like Lord Dufferin, took the opportunity of a dinner given in his honour at the club of which he was patron to review his proconsulae, and to express his opinions on some leading matters of public importance. Like Lord Dufferin, he was emphatic aud decided in his views as to the cloBe union that ought to prevail between the mothor country and her daughter states. He rejoiced that the people of England were determined, by whatever party name men chose to eall themselves, or whatever political colours they pleased to wear, to support those public men who desire to maintain the old institutions under which our country has grown g...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON M[?]TAT GENUS. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 25 December 1874

% Ototah ittróata Une*."/ SOLUM NON MOTAT OBNUS. <-i FRIDlírDE3BSBER^25Tw74? THE: words of the old song, .' It is good to be merry and wise/' are a fitting motto for the festivities which, at this season, will be general throughout the colony. These, like many other customs sanctioned and perpetu ated by religion, have in their origin a half-pagan character, and it should bo our care that the material element,:which represents it, does not predominate. In these days when so great an effort is making by some to dissociate religion from social life, and from domestic rela- tions, and concentrate it in the church, the social aspect of Christmas, and the effects of the domestic reunions which it promotes, are more than usually beauti- ful, as leading to more warm apprecia- tion of the value of Home, sweet Home, to all who have one to resort to. The patriarchal spirit which the re- formation encouraged, we might al- most say restored, to the religious life of the people, is fa...
