No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

IN all probability the incoming mail will enlighten us upon the dark question, of Colonial representation. At all events we shall know, and within a very short time, first, whether the Memorialwas duly forwarded, next the remarks of the Go vernment upon the prayer of it, and lastly, the decision of the Home Govern ment as to its acceptance or rejection. In all probability it will in principle be accepted, but modified to meet the excep tional condition of the colony. We glean from Cape of Good Hope papers, that the Government there prTo pose to substitute, and with the concur rence of the present Legislature, a new form of representation; the great dis tances between the extreme limits of the colony, making it inconvenient for mem bers to attend the annual meeting of the Colonial Parliament. Having to travel over bush roads and tracks by land, and in coasting vessels by sea, is a severe task even on the most patriotic and ambitious. The new system proposes to divide the whole colony...

Odds and Ends. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

The preservation of Extract of meat has proved a success ;a dividend has been declared by the Company formed to carry out the invention at the rate of 6 p.c., per annum with a bonus of 3 s. on each share. The Government at the Cape of Good Hope, have proposed to divide the Colony into eighteen Electral districts, returning three members each, to these are to be added three members of the Executive Government, the whole to form a Legislative Chamber. [We cannot but hope that the same form of Go vernment may be conceded to this Colony, and if the same principle as to the propor tion of popular to Government members is observed it will be a most gracious and ac ceptable settlement of the question in which every Colonial takes not only a pnblic but a personal interest.] A Leading Article supposed to represent the Money Market observes :-that the low rate of interest and the abundance of money would lead people to believe that the demand for discounts would be increased at the Bank of En...

SAKE OF WHEAT: [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

SALE OF WHEAT :-Messrs. Lionel Samson and Son disposed at public auction, on Tuesday, the 3 inst of a large quantity of damaged wheat ex Salvia. The attendance was numerous, the bid dings brisk, and a good price realized. It aver aged about 3s. 9d. per bushel. ACCIDENT TO THE SunvEYoR-GENERAL.-We regret to have to record an accident to this old and indefatigable and popular public officer, Capt. Roe. Returning from Fremantle on Tuesday last, at the quarry, near Crawley, the horse he was driving in his gig shied, and threw Mr. Roe out, among some stones. He sustained severe bruises on the head and face, and the joint of his thumb was broken. We are happy to say he is recovering. BAZAAR :-The Sisters of Charity held their annual Bazaar at the Convent, Fremantle, on Monday and Tuesday last, which we are happy to say met with the patronage and support, that the self.denying and ever ready charities of these excellent christian ladies so justly entitle them to.

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. The concluding article in yours of Saturday last, appears to have been written under the erroneous, altho" very prevalent, idea, that Mer chants and Storekeepers in this colony make such heavy profits that the only fit term for hem is that of exactions. Now I am neither a Merchant nor Storekeeper and therefore am not speaking interestedly when I say that better profits are made in England, although I am aware it is a common notion here that the Importer who retails gets cent per cent ; an idea so very far from being correct that I am at a loss to surmise how it ever originated ; but this, possibly, is owing to my not being acquainted with the manner in which business was conducted in the early days of the colony. The ready sale, or otherwise, of a commodity regulates the per centage of profit placed upon it; thus, the Retail Grocer's advance on' the Wholesale cost is at a lower ratio than that of the Jeweller, the Fancy Goods dealer, or the Chemist, alth...

THE STORY-TELLER. MILDRED GAUNTLETT. CHAPTER III. CHARLES AND RUPERT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

THE STORY-TELLER. MILDRED GAUNTLETT. By " The Author of The Old 'Manor House." CHAPTER III. CHARLES AND RUPERT. " No, Rupert, no ! This ceaseless harrying of my loving people, this weary partizan war fare, this wild brigandage of yours, troubles and distresses me. Let us once more come to an open field, to a fair and upstand fight, to a real battle, and I pledge my royal word, my kingly gage, that!I will place, nay, cast all upon the die, and putting faith in God, and my own good cause, measure swords again with these accursed Roundheads. What say you, Sir Mar maduke Langdale ? Shall it be so ? " Sire, you speak my own thoughts," replied Langdale, " this predatory, and unsatisfactory. warfare, only alienates our friends, and makes foes of those who would be a help and comfort to us." Uncle, I crave your pardon, but I sim ply say Bah to all you have said; with the same word applied to the observation of my grave and grey haired friend Marmaduke."

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I wish to draw your attention to a practice indulged in by some of the settlers, of a most ~ shamefully dishonest character, the robbing of fthe weak and helpless. Several complaints have been made to me at different times, of settlers taking advan tage of the ignorance of the 'natives of the value of money, to give them goods to about the onethird of the value of the money ten dered. Can mean cowardly dishonesty de scend lower ? the individual who could be guilty of so base a breach of the eighth com mandment, deserves the severest punishment. He can be honest in his dealings with his equals only in consequence of his fears of de tection, and not from principle. Such an individual, in the estimation all right minded men is far more degraded than the miserable London pick-pocket who steals from necessity. It seems almost incredible that men, jealous of the name of christian, should be guilty of such a flagrant violation of the golden rule of life, "...

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. INVITATION TO GOVERNMENT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 September 1867

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. INVITATION TO GOVERNMENT HOUSE. Well the Governor's done one of the wisest things I ever heard of. It beats all Barnum's tricks to rags. He's made all the ladies in the colony his friends, and I dare say he knows, better than I can tell him, that when you have the ladies as friends the gentlemen are sure to be on your' side. There's a chance for everybody in the colony nearly, to have a peep at the inside of Government House and inspect the..fine furniture as the papers make such a noise about, sayin' it coqt such a awful lot of money, but you don't know what to believe. I was talkin' to a settler's son as visits Government House, young Lumpkin-the other day about this same thing, and I asks him-" Did you see the Oriential furniture ?" "Bosh," he says"-the house aint furnished at all. " But the papers," I says," is always runnin' out .about the costly furniture, the money for which ought to have been spent on the roads. 'All humbug " he.says;" ' The ho...

FEMALE LOBBYISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 September 1867

FE-MALE LOBBTISTS.-The following sketch of a female lobbyist reminds us of .the days of Charles II. and Louis XIV., when women played an influential but a demoralizing part in politics: Leaning back in a deep chair, no. one near her,. you see a fair women, whose. beautiful presence seems at variance With the many anx ious and angular and the few coarse women around her. The calmness of assured position, the serene satisfaction of conscious beauty, en velop her and float from her like an atmosphere. We feel it even here. Pale .plumes. drop above her lovely forehead, velvet draperies. fall. about her graceful form. We catch a glimpse of alluring laces, the gleam of jewels glittering on dimpled ungloved hands. Look long into this face; its splendor of tint and perfection of outline can bear the closest scrutinY.

LONDON WOOL REPORT. July 24, 1867. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 September 1867

LONDON WOOL REPORT.- July 24, 1867.. Since the close of last sales several small transactions have taken place at late prices. Business in England ancl on the. continent, in spite of the .impi~ovemient observable in the closing rates of the late series, remains slack, and will require a strong impulse from without to return to a really vigorous and healthy positiofi. That the.approaching narvest will supply such a stimulus may be hoped, but the present unsettled state of the weather rather damps the bright ex'pectations that were entertained some time ago. Unfor unately, one chief element to a satisfac tory trade, viz., confidence, is wanting, and will probably remain so for a long time to come, for it cannot possibly return as long as the political relations of the continental Powers continue in their. pre sentposition. Under these circumstances nothing can be said as to the prospects of the trade, except that in the face of the enormously increasing production growers must look fo...

* . u cblr Opinion. ; For the statements and' pinions of our Corres pondents, we do not hold. ourselves responsible. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR ? In thanking you for inserting my last, allow me to draw attention to an error which occurs in it-speaking of the charges which accrue upon importations, it should be from fifteen tQ~ 80 & 90 per cent. and not fifty. 1 Having in my letter shewn, I think, that the price of goods generally is not owing to exces-. sive profits being derived by the seller, I will now endeavor to slew why that price is higher. than in other places where the supply is like wise obtained from England. The chief reason is thatall the business men here are dealing in almost every trade. Now the ne cessity of this system in the early days of the Colony it is not my province to discuss, nor. have I in fact the necessary experience were I to attempt it; but that it is no r iot only un necessary but tends to cripple. the transactions of the meichants I am ...
