The Aobelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 February 1880

%\t Uoôtfet. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) , [Coníúmed,] Having given the necessary orders to the gardener, Raymond left the Hermitage and went ont for a walk. He required a little solitude to calm down his thoughts, and the tronble of his mind and heart. The walk did him good, and he did not return till dark. In order to reach his room he was obliged to pass through the library, and when he open- ed the door the first thing he saw was Miss Rovel asleep in an armchair by the window. She had come to the library to bring back the volume of Madame do Sévigné's letters which she had been reading in the garden, and had sat down to have another look at the passage which had so much struck her fancy. While reading it over again, sleep had overtaken her-surely the first time that Madame de Sévigné had ever sent anyone to sleep. Raymond felt an instinctive warning that here a danger awaited him, greater than that which he had run in the garden, and his first impulse was to beat a hasty retr...

DR. J. COLLIS BROWNE'S CHLORO DYNE is the original and only genuine. CAUTION.-Vice-Chancellor Sir W. P. Wood stated that Dr. COLLIS BROWNE is undoubtedly the Inventor of CHLORO DYNE : that the story of the defendant Free- man being the Inventor, waB deliberately un- true, which he regretted had been sworn to. Eminent Hospital Physicians of London stated that Dr. J.

Occasinal Aotes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 February 1880

eaaáoMÍ goies. LOCAL ANJO GENERAL. What the Inquirer calls ' the streak of light in the south western sky,' which has been visi- ble for several nights past, has been pronounced by the Government Astronomer of South Aus- tralia to be a comet. We hasten to disabuse the mind of our readers of any fear, in the event of the celestial wanderer crossing our path. It would seem that after being the djread of gen- erations-after serving the purpose of any the- orist who found a catastrophe necessary-com- ets have become objects of contempt. . ' Time back Kepler said there was as many comets in the heavens as there are fish in the sea, and the inference is. that they must be as harmless. He records how one of Jupiter's moons got en- tangled in a tail belonging to one of these er- ratic visitors of our system, without the lumin- ary being at all discomposed. And we lately read a speculation by an eminent Swiss profes- sor on the probability that the earth itself passed through the tail of the...

A GRIEVANCE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-Will you allow me space in pour valu- able columns for a few lines with regard to teachers of Government schools as to the man- ner in which they are treated in reference to the half-yearly payment of their limited in- comes ? The Central Board has appointed an Inspecl tor, who is expected to visit and inspect al Government schools half yearly ; and the re- sults for the half year are, of course, eagerly anticipated, especially by teachers whose year- ly income is very limited, who have a tiring task in uncomfortable schoolrooms, and often much discomfort and inconvenience with re- gard to lodgings. Parents and members of local school boards expect-really expect-teach- ers to use their best endeavours in education, but I often wonder if they ever think of the many disappointments we meet with both through them and through the Inspector. I believe they seldom think of anything beyond themselves Instead of getting the * results' ...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FOBBEST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] June 11th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 February 1880

<%lorati0u. From the Be Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FOBBEST, F.E.G.S. [Continued.] June 11th. We made an early start this morning, and steered N.N.W. for a couple of miles, till W8 reached a stream running Southward, and afterwards during the day other streams flow- ing in the same direction were continually crossed. The country we passed over, though rocky, was splendidly grassed, especially tibe beautiful flats, the slopes of the hills, and the banks of the running brooks. It often seems to me most strange that such a country as this should so long have been left unoccupied. Ahead the scenery appears to be of the same description. Kangaroo abound, but are very wild. Carey waa very much worse last night, and today is but little better. My eyes are rather stronger than they were. Marked tree F 106. June 12. We followed a creek down today for four miles till joined by another larger one from the Eastward, the two forming & good-sired ...

THE Wi\ auaiu ViGiLANs ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 13,1880. POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE. WE published in our last issue a letter from an esteemed correspondent which draws at- tention to the above subject-one already to a certain extent dealt with in a late number of this paper. Those who have not taken the popular side in the present agitation, those who have not gone in for promiscuous abuse of the objects of popular prejudice, those who still have some remnant left of a sense of justice, and of the Englishman's habitual love of fair play, have put up for long with the various would-be opprobrious epithets which have been freely bestowed upon them-all having for their object the suggestion that honest conviction can play no part m the action of those who both ob. ject to the immediate introduction of a form of government which they consider unsuited to the present condition of the colony, and who make some stand against the wanton abuse, exaggeration, and bare-faced lying by which th...

THE fittest ¡ütostnilian. VißiLANs ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, FEB. 17, 1880. ALE^Ol^FRcirô^ÊNSL^LrANI) NEW SOUTH WALES. BEFOBE the interest which the recent dis- cussion of the land question evoked has finally passed away, wo wish to draw atten- tion to certain facts connected with squat- ting in Queensland and New South "Wales, which we think ought to influence all those who really have the good of the colony at heart, in forming their opinions with refer- ence to our land policy of the future. These facts appear to us to bear with some force upon the question as to the best means for encouraging the improvement of * the waste lands of the Crown, and also to show the fallacy of some of those suggestions for the amendment of our land regulations which have lately been made. New South Wales closed the year with an estimated stock of 30,000,000 sheep, which was an increase of nearly 5,000,000 on the number at the close of 1878. In Queens- land, on the other hand, the fluctuating record...

éîfloraiiott. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] June 24. At daylight Hicks and I started for the hill seen yesterday, (which I named Mt. Hopeless,) which bore N. 100 E. and was about seven miles distant from the camp. After four hours hard travelling we reached the foot of it, and climb- ing to the top, obtained an extensive view of the surrounding country. To the North-East lay the Stephen Range, and we saw also in that direction a large creek running into the sea. Having taken a round of angles, we descended the hill, and beside a stream at the bottom, we ate a piece of damper before starting back for camp. On our way we tried to discover a suit- able track for the horses, but the farther we went the moro involved we became in the end- less rugged zigzags of the cliffs. So we gave up at last in despair, and made straight for the party having walked, fourteen miles alto- gether, over the roughest country that ever ...

MR. HAMERSLEY AT YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 February 1880

MR. HAMERSLEY AT YORK. Mr. Edward Hamersley, one of the candidates for the representation of the York district, ad- dressed the electors on the 11th inst. Mr. HAMERSLEY said: Gentlemen-In the first place I have to call your attention to a foul libel against me which appeared in the columns of the Herald, published on the 31st January. The Herald states : " Mr. Hamersley, who was fortunate enough to get a favourable remark in the columns of the Catholics' journal, had only just before insulted the Catholics most grossly -and is the last man they would support." In refutation of this, let me tell you 1 have always considered a man may be known by his friends ; my friends here are the first men in the colony, and I am proud to rank among them such men as Bishop Salvado, Fathers Bourke, Martelli, and Gibney. (Cheero.) Coming forward pub- licly, I am prepared to take any amount of hard- hitting given in a fair and manly way ; but I protest in the strongest terms against slander and false...

Fourteen vessels and sixteen lives were lost, and numer- ous buildings and plantations were destroyed in New Caledonia. One hundred thousand pounds have been voted for the relief of the sufferers. LONDON, Feb. 9th. Diplomatie correspondence has recently been exchanged between London and Teheran, the result of which is that England has released Persia from the clause in the treaty betwetn the two Powers binding Persia not to take Herat. The debate in the House of Commons on the amendment upon the Address in Reply is again adjourned owing to the obstructive tac- tics of the Home Rulers. The leading Liberals oppose the amendment. The Marquis of Hartington and Mr. Forster both spoke against it. The Theatre Royal, Dublin, has been burnt down. Six persons were killed and several injured.

®|c to&eller. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. BT WALTER PADBUBY. Burtisß' Hotel, Davenport, Sept. 21.-Ar- rived here this evening from Chicago, a dis- tance of 182 miles. The country for the first twenty miles or so from Chicago consisted of fine level prairie land,-very rich ; after that we passed through about fifty or sixty miles of rougher country, along the banks of a river, which were for the most part planted with Indian corn. We passed through thou- sands of acres of this cereal today, immense fields of it extending as far as the eye could see, and presenting a very pretty sight. We crossed the great Mississipi river at night, the town we are now staying at (Davenport) being on its banks. In the course of our jour- ney hence we partook, for the first time, of a 'sit down'dinner in a railway-hotel, the train meanwhile going at full speed. The dinner was in every respect equal to what would be served you at...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 February 1880

(jtaáonaí Moles. LOCAL AND GENERAL. We sincerly regret the announcement we are called upon to make to day of Mr. Steere's defeat at Bunbury. His loss to the House is a grievous one, and will be severely felt. "We have no hesitation in saying that throughout the length and breadth of the colony the result of the Bunbury election will cause unfeigned disappointment. Saint Valentine is everybody's bravo. For weeks before his anniversary comes round, shop windows are blazoned rich in the heraldry of corruption. They burst forth into a very typhus of vulgarity. They are horrible with the rash of spitefulness and villainy. To look into one of them is to Bhock for a moment your faith in human nature. Art appears to have got drunken and inept with nastiness. Every insult that malevolence can apprehend is pro- vided for. A man's legs are no more safe than his moral character. For twopence any scound- rel can fit himself with a weapon to offend the best and holiest relations. Libel for the no...
