BUNBURY. His Excellency Governor Weld, passing through and resting at Bunbury, on Sunday 13th inst., on his way overland to Albany, previous to leaving the colony for his new Go- vernment of Tasmania, the opportunity was taken to present him with a farewell address, which, though got up at the last moment, owing to the uncertainty and doubt as to his visiting Bunbury, was signed by about 150 of the settlers and townspeople, including the Chairman and Municipal Councillors, as well as all the principal inhabitants of the district within reach, all classes joining with evident pleasure in bearing testimony to the social and political benefits derived from Governor Weld's, residence among them, and his Government of the colony,the first name signed to, and heading the address, being that of Mr. John Scott, senr., the first person who settled in the Wellington district, some forty years ago, and who is now the head of four generations in the district.

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 December 1874

TO THE EDITOR SIR, - The laudations and the presents, and the greetings shown towards Forrest and his party, will shortly become things of the past, and when the quiet ploddings of the every-day life are again resumed by each individual of that heroic party, the reflections will indeed be lasting and satisfactory. But with your per- mission I will bring to the notice of the public what I consider to be a duty on the part of the Government, namely, to give a small and las ting pension, that is, for life, to Tommy Win- dich, " in recognition of his valuable and long tried services in so many expeditions." Who can name an expedition into the interior with- out naming Tommy as one of the party ? Twice he has crossed the deserts to South Australia, and to the east and north-east no one has travelled more. And if the colony of Western Australia is benefited by its explorations, then reward the man who has been so long faithful and true to the cause, and so useful towards the development o...

PERTH POLICE COURT. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., P.M.) MONDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 29 December 1874

PERTH POLICE COURT. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., P.M.) MONDAY, DECEMBER 21,1874. WILLIAM KIRBY, a probation prisoner, was   brought up charged with being absent from the prisoners' camp, situate at Freshwater Bay, on the 19th inst. It appears that nume- rous complaints has been made to C. H. Clif- ton, Esq., the Superintendent of Perth Prison and Inspector of Stations, of prisoners being in the habit of not only soliciting, but in a far more peremtory manner obtaining tobacco, and other articles from persons passing by on the road from Perth to Fremantle, and instruc- tions were accordingly given to the police, and the result proved that a mounted trooper found the prisoner partly secreted, waiting, no doubt, for an opportunity to either beg or demand. Sentenced to 21 days' solitary confinement at Fremantle prison, the first seven days to be kept on bread and water only. THOMAS DARCEY, charged by p.c. Wallace with being drunk, was fined 5s. JOHN HOLE was brought up in cu...

GERALDTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 1 January 1875

GERALDTON. The Japanese Troupe have been astonishing this people of tho district, and have left a very pleasing impression of their visit. To say the feats of agility and strength, are wonderful is to say very little. Mr. Pollock: very kindly gave a day performance in Geraldton for the benefit of the children, charging so small a sum that every on© could avail themselves of the offer. The examination of the boys' and girls' schools took place on the 18th, under the man- agement of the School Board, with the excep- tion 'of Mr. Crowther, the chairman, who has resigned. I am informed the children acquit- ted themselves most satisfactorily, and many g-vned prizes. Î a'm glad to say that the board has broken through the system of giving every child something. A certain rule was laid down, and prizes selected before examination* and these were presented as rewards, for accom- plishing certain works, thus actually rewarding the diligent, and possibly inducing some of the careless to put t...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 1 January 1875

TO THE EDITOE. Sir,-The irregularity and uncertainty of the movements of the steamer Georgette has become almost as fruitful source of complaint, and with more reason, as the heat of the weather or state of the crops. This (steamer has of late certainly left undone some of the things ex- pected of her. She arrived at Geraldton on the evening of the 16th, as usual full of passen- gers, and, according to custom and arrange- ment, was to make the usual intermediate trip, to Fremantle, returning in time for the mails, thus giving an opportunity to any that wished to return in time for Christmas, to go down and return in about 5 days. To the disruption of business arrangements and the annoyance of some pleasure-seekers, a notice is posted at the office that the steamer will not leave before Saturday, the 26th, thus cutting off ali com- munication by steam with Fremantle for one month. The fact of disappointing a tew holi- day people making a trip during Cm-is Unas week may to many seem a...

TOODYAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 1 January 1875

TOODYAY. The result of tho adjourned Road Board election was in favor of Mr. W. G. Leeder, who was returned by a majority of one. There seems now to be an im- pression that the election on Thursday Mas a mistake, and that Mr. C. S. Moa ger was returned on 24*th instant. There appears to have been some irregularities at the proceedings, which I should hard- ly think it worth while to inquire into. Dangerous and fatal sicknes is sad- dening many of the settlers' homes thi3 Chsistmas time, and there are few one meets with that can be wished a ' merry' season.

% Hester« üastraliait ©traes. 80LUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FMDAYT?ANl5AKrTri875. AT the commencement of a New Year, although we will not weary our readers by a recapitalation of all the events of that which is past, it may be well to take such a general retrospect as may enable them to arrive at a just conclusion as to what have been the general results to which we have now attained. What is passed cannot be recalled, but, if we are not made wiser by experience, we re- main, as the father of history says, al- ways children. No year can pass with- out profit, in this respect, to those who survive to see another, whatever losses or sufferings or evil deeds may have found place in its records, and although the, events of the past year are, as those of each succeeding year must be, chequered with good and evil, we may be thankful to look back on the past year as one in which the former largely predominates. Politically the year 1874 will be looked back upon as the commencement of the politica...
