There have seldom been two such "oon siliences," or two clouds of " molecules " inter acting with such harmonious force and happy effect, as the solemn declaration left by M. Ouizot and Professor Pritchards paper read at ' Brighton on Thursday. They both show that combination of faith and fearlessness which leads to the grandest conceptions, "and the firmest-indeed, the only really firm and solid -convictions. In both these papers, though the one is an exhaustive survey and the other brief as a creed, we read the history of a battle which has now been raging for a century. . . . Professor Pritchard began by clearly stating, and discussing as fully as the very brief limit of time allowed, the new philosophy of certain atoms containing, as they were, the potential» ity of the entire creation, material, moral, spiritual, or what not, and resulting after long...
CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 25 December 1874
CHAMPION BAY. The Tengoy, from Middleton, loaded with railway iron and plant, anchored at Champion Bay on Tuesday, 15th, about 4 p.m. She is 108 days out, and chartered hence by way of Rangoon, to load with rice. Coming down the channel one of the sailors was lost overboard. Mr, Taylor, a gentleman from Viatoria, has heen oat on an exploring expedition, ac- companied by Mr. T. Little, The route was east from the Bay, and thence to the «ountry on the head of the Murchison, close to the tracks of Forrest's party. Mr. Taylor-no mean judge-reporta that this has been an unusually dry season, but that the country he has seen is equal to the very best in Victoria ; indeed, from his description, which haB the ad- vantage of being both practical and reliable, it bespeaks a new era in the squatting industry hitherto unknown in Western Australia. Harvest is now general, and' the crop of wheat a fair average. Barley »ill not turn out so well as anticipated. i Victoria, December 17,1874.

HOLLOWAYS PILLS. TO THE EDITOR OF " THE ARGUS." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 25 December 1874
HOLLOWAYS PILLS TO THE EDITOR OP " THE ABQUS 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 ills contain opium in a rather excessive, degree, but the ointment is simply lard with a slight trace of turpentine. To distinguish 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...

PERTH POLICE COURT. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., P.M.) FRIDAY, DEC. 11, 1874. JOHN HOLE, an expiree, and SARAH BROWN, married woman, board and lodginghousekeeper, Murray Street, were brought up in custody, charged with stealing from the person of Thomas Evans, at the " Horse and Groom Hotel," a sum of money amounting to about £3. Mr. Howell defended the prisoners. Thomas Evans, upon being sworn, said—I formerly was living with Mr. Thomas Wilding, at Northam, but am now in the service of Mr. Scrivener. I came to Perth for some lotion for my eyes. I went to the Horse and Groom and had a glass or two of drink in the tap room. Shortly afterwards the two prisoners &nbsp; came in, and asked me what I was going to stand, at the same time inviting me to go with them, into the parlor, which I did, and paid for half a pint of brandy and some ginger beer. I paid for it out of a little bag I kept my money in, and replaced it in my waistcoat pocket, and buttoned my coat afterwards. After ...

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 25 December 1874
LOCAL AND GENERAL &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; WE are authorised to state that, although at the recent assembling of the parents and friends of the pupils at the school of Mr. G. A. Letch, great satisfaction was expressed at the works of the pupils' drawings, maps, &c, which were then exhibited for their inspection, there was no examination, Mr. Letch having concluded that the effect of the late epidemic on the strength of some of the pupils rendered it undesirable ; and we are glad to be informed that the Central Board of Education has, for the same reason, delayed the examination in the public schools till Easter. RECKLESS DRIVING.-A man named Delowry, from Fremantle, was charged before the presid- ing magistrate at the City Police Court a few days ago with furious driving in the public streets. Corporal Connell, who took him into custody, said the reckless manner in which the accused drove his trap, sometimes on the main road and sometimes on the footpath,...
CHRISTMAS CONTRASTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 25 December 1874
CHRISTMAS CONTRASTS. CHRISTMAS, as the old "carol says, comes but once a year, but its return bringa .vith it mental visions of the " Loves, friendships, hopes, and dear remembr- ances" of the past, as well as the joyful realization of those that are present ; and if the past is presented to the mind's eye by some sombre tints and d«ep sha lows, as hosv can it be otherwise in the retro speet of human life, aud if uncertainties for the futui'e temper present joys ; in the faith which on that day we celubrate, Christians can find unalloyed pleasure, and Cliristmas-day, as it has always been, so it must ever be, jpar excellence, a day of rejoicing to be marked, as it has customarily been, by such outward signs of the iuward joy, as the circumstances of time and place make possible and be- coming. In the retrospect of but a few years some strong Christmas contrasts resulting from those causes, rise up vividly before us. It is a bright day of midsummer in the southern tropic, and the sun...

THE PRINCIPLES OF SHEEP BREEDING. (From the journal of the agricultural society of New South Wales.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 December 1874
THE PEINCIPLES OF SHEEP BREEDING. (From the journal of the agricultural society of New South Wales.) At the monthly meeting of the Agri- cultural Society of New South Wales, on 7th inst., Mr. ß. L. Jenkins in the chair, Mr. W. P. Gordon read the following paper on " The principles that should guide breeders and graziers of sheep for long wool and mutton" : " Gentlemen,-In the following re- marks I fear you will not find much ori- ginality or great depth. I offer them with the wish to promote the objects of this useful society, thinking that the sub- ject is one on which many residents of this colony are seeking for information. " First, I would take exception to the use of the term coarse wool a3 meaning inferior. We are apt to be influenced (perhaps insensibly) by a term which is one of reproach, or at least anything but one of praise when applied to the merino ; and though tho wool of the various breeds of English sheep is coarse by com- parison, yet much of it lias qualities whic...
TOODYAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 December 1874
TOODYAY. An unusual amount of damage has been done by bush lires tor this early season of the year, and more than one homestead has already been devastated, to say nothing of standing and threshed corn and paddock fencing and feed that have been destroyed. Red rust has happily this year been almost unknown in these distiiccs, bub bush fires are uufortunately doing more than the ordinary work, traceable, I believe, in almost all instances, to the reckless use ot the common lucifer matches. On Monday last, the 21st instant, the York Union and the Newcastle Clubs played a friendly cricket match on the Nortiiam ground. The rival clubs met at about 10 a.m., then the Newcastle eleven went to the wickets, and obtained a very creditable score of more than 80. The York men then took the bats, and scored upwards of 146. The players afterwards adjourned to a shed on the ground where an excellent luncheon was prepared by Host Hasleby, and done ample justice to. The New- castle eleven went a sec...
