THE PEARLING FLEET, NORTH WEST. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 February 1880

THE PEARLING FLEET, NORTH WEST. (From a Correspondent.) We have forsaken Exmouth Gulf, partly on account of the threatening aspect of the weather -for the " Gulf" is an ugly place in a ' willi willy,' as was proved towards the end of 1875 and partly on account of the superior attrac- tions of our kind old friend Kate Carney Is- land, winch always has something for us, and near which we can easily get good shelter. Our take in shells so far has not been anything to boast of. This has been an exceptionally cold season, and the prevalence of influenza-in some cases resulting in inflammation of the lungs and death,-has been a serious drawback to our work. Up to this date (9th Jan. ) we have had no rain to speak of although we are expecting it every day. Stock I hear are doing well, but would be none the worse off for a little mois- ture. At Shark's Bay, the pearling operations, I learn, are very slack indeed, and the ' take ' iu pearls small. The pearlers all tell me that they are barel...

MR. BURT AT PINJARRAH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 17 February 1880

MR. BURT AT PINJARRAH. On Wednesday, the 11th February, Mr. Burt addressed the electors of the Murray and Williams district, in the large room of Green- acre's hotel. Amongst those present we noticed Messrs. Wellard, W. Patterson, McClarty, Greenacre, Campbell, Hymus, Beauchamp, Cooper, Brodie, Moore, W. Cornish, H. Parkes and others. Mr. Wellard who was moved into the chair, introduced the candidate to the meeting, and stated that, as was well known, there had been some talk of hid (Mr. Wellard's) coming for- ward himself to ask for the suffrage of the elec- tors, but that he had gladly given way to Mr. Burt, considering that Mr. Burt, from the ex- perience of parliamentary business which he had acquired while holding a seat as a nominated member, from his legal knowledge and ability, and for various other reasons, was the best man they could have to represent them in the Legis- lative Council. Mr. BURT, who was cordially received, then rose and addressed the meeting. In the first ...

RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT IN TASMANIA. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT IN TASMANIA. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I have read with much interest the admirable speech delivered by Mr. Burt to the electors at Pinjarrah, reported in the West Australian yesterday. I notice that Mr. Burt sought to make a little political capital out of the fact that Tasmania was not included in the extracts which I recently furnished you for publication, showing what our neighbors who possess Responsible Gov- ernment think of it. If you have space, per- haps you will be good enough to allow me to supplement the extracts already published with one from a leading Tasmanian journal (the Launceston Examiner), which goes to show that even in that colony, as in those on the mainland, self-government has proved an expensive, inefficient, and positively in- jurious affair. Your obedient servant, LIBERAL-CONSERVATIVE. Feb. l8. " It is not easily accounted for " says the "Ex- aminer, " how men elected as representatives, chosen as executive officer...

MR. BROCKMAN REPUDIATES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AASTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

MR. BROCKMAN REPUDIATES. To THE EDITOR or THE WEST AASTRALIAN. DKAR SIE,-1 am suprised that you should avail yourself of reporters' errors, to have what you call a " go in " at me. The gentleman who kiudly took notes when I addressed the Gingin electors made a mistake as to what I said about the land question. I only repeated what had apxiearal in the papers, adding that I was aware of cases in which people had been compelled to take up land not worth renting at all, in order to secure a better patch. In my address to the Guildford electors, your own reporter made a few mistakes which might have been allowed to pass, if you had not chosen to try aud use them to my disadvantage. I did not make use of the words " house on fire ;" or " At auy rate, he had the highest legal auth- ority iu the colony for saying so." These were not used by me in reference to the amount claimed by Mr. McDonald, or any other claim ; andl believe the logal gentle- man referred to knows me better than to supp...

The Trabeller. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

í% fcfrclkr. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. BY WALTER PADBURY. [Continued.'] Monday morning, 29th Sept.- We have been here now (SaltLake City) four days, aud seen most of the town. Yesterday (Sunday) we went again to the tabernacle. There were about three thousand people in attendance, and three different speakers 'held forth.' The first speaker told us plain that he was " inspired from God," and that no one would be saved unless they became Mormons, and acted up to it. The second speaker quite concurred in what the first one said, and he also claimed to be inspired. The third speaker was more moderate, and there was nothing in his discourse to find fault with. In addition to the Mormon tabernacle, there is a Church of England here (St. Peter's), which we attended in the evening, ; a bishop and two clergymen officiated, and there was a congregation of about forty people, all told. There is also a Catholic chapel here, a...

A SIMPLE STUMP PULLER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

A SIMPLE STUMP PULLER. Stumps of small size, larger ones that are half decayed, or even whole trees, may be torn out by the roots, by the useof simple appliances. These are a stout iron hook, a strong lever, a heavy chain, and a pair of horses or «attie, to be hitched to the chain. The hook is provid- ed with a chain and ring, a sharp point, a bead by which it is driven into the stump with- out battering it, or, iu the case of very hard wood, an auger hole two inches deep can be made to receive the point of it, It should be marie curved to fit the circumference of the stump or tree. A lever is passed through the ring, and the team is hitched in the usual way to the other end. Irrigation is applied to orange trees with marked suocess in South Australia. Mr. Thos. Hardy, who has a magnificent orchard of 100 acres in extent, at Bankside, cultivates ten acres of oranges. Mr. Hardy uses the plough and pcarifier in it freely, and, judging from the ap- pearance of his orchard the surface r...

A CLERGYMAN REPLIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

A CLERGYMAN REPLIES. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-I saw a letter signed " A. B." a short time back in your columns, expressing the wish that the clergy would make their sermons more like those of Charles Kingsley and would take drains, sewers, and water-supply for their sub- jects, instead of faith, hope, and charity, in which lay-people had ceased to be interested. Books are scarce out here, and parsons cannot afford to buy them, so perhaps "A. B." will excuse my asking if he can help one clergyman to fulfil the first part of his wish by lending him some volumes of Kingslcy's sermons ; I have a great admiration for the man and his method of work- ing. But, really, by what commission, and by what special educational or other fitness, are clergymen marked out as the teachers of sana- tory science ? They have some special opportu- nities, and I never knew much of any clergy man without finding him to some extent a sana- tory reformer ; but I am very sure that nine clergy...

Correspondence. THE CONTROL OF PUBLIC EXPENDITURE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

THE CONTROL OF PUBLIC EXPENDI- TURE. To TUB EDITOR OP TUB WEST AUSTRALIAN. Sut.-The elections having f«r all practi- cal purposes decided the question of Respon- sible Government, for the present at least, the most important matter to be dealt with by our legislators will be that of finance, and I believe that if members of Council will combine, with a settled determination, to in- sist upon some measure to enforce an efficient control «ver the public expenditure, a great deal of the existing dissatisfaction, which without doubt does pervade all classes of the community, would cease. In a late issue of your paper, in which you refer to the passing of a stringent Audit Act here, similar to those in force in the other colonies, you state that should such an Act be passed by our Council, it would be neces- sary for it to meet more than once .a year to provide the necessary supplies. In this opin- ion 1 am unable to agree, as I am convinced that instead of being conducive to economy it ...

PURIFYING RANCID BUTTER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

PURIFYING RANCID BUTTER. Calvin Peck some ten years ago obtained a Eatent for restoring and preserving butter ; is invention relates to a new process for puri- fying butter, having especial reference to ar- resting fermentation and restoring rancid but- ter. His process consists in melting the butter in a clean vessel under a slow and regular heat, and while it is molting he adds two ounces of pulverised alum- to every five pounds of but- ter, the butter being stirred gently while melting. When thoroughly melted it is strain- ed through a fino strainer into cold water. The butter will rise to the surface quite pure and transparent. The alum coagulates the albumen, the caséine, and other foreign matter, all of which are retained in the strainer, leaving the butter perfeotly pure and clean, and of uniform consistency. When the butter is suffifcently cool to be in good working order, it is carefully taken out and thoroughly worked, adding to each live pounds of butter three ounces of g...

<%lûnnott. FrÄm the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOVEN AL OF EXPLORATION : BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] July 8. Fifteen miles through open grassy plains brought us to the Fitzroy, upon the banks of which we camped, all very tired, for we had walked the whole way. Lat. 17 deg. 51 min. 13 sec. July 9. Eested all day, as we want some recruiting before making a start for the telegraph line, which is about. 350 miles distant. After weigh- ing our rations, we find that there is enough on short allowance to last us about fifty days. July 10. We repaired our packs and caught a number of fish. I intend leaving two pack saddles be- hind, here. July 11. Crossing the Fitzroy we came upon our out- ward tracks, and, after travelling for thirteen miles in a Southerly direction, across a splen- did grassy plain, we camped upon a creek well filled with water. We re-arranged the packs to-day so that six of us can ride at a time, only two being obliged to walk. Dower shot a large ...

MR. MAITLAND BROWN AT GERALDTON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

MR. MAITLAND BROWN AT GER. ALDTON. In accordance with a notice placarded throughout Geraldton and the district, Mr. Maitland Brown appeared before the elec- tors of his late constituency at the Working Men's Hall, on Saturday evening, 7th Feb- ruary, with the avowed intention of correct- ing the statements made by Mr. Gray, at a meeting held in his Hall on the 2nd inst., and of exposing the line of conduct pursued by the Herald and the Victorian Express. There was a large attendance, not only of electors, but the general public, who filled the Hall to overflowing, and manifested the greatest interest in the proceedings. At 8 o'clock the chairs on the platform were filled by members of Mr. Brown's committee, viz. : Messrs. C. Crowther, M. Hosken, W. H. Gale, H. Smith, H. Woodman, Jas. Smith, Jas. Hanlon, and M.

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 20 February 1880

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. It is very exasperating to find that so important an election as Mr. Steere's at Bunbury was lost through carelessness which might easily have been avoided. In the neighbourhood of the Williams nearly 60 electors reside, who have votes for the Wellington district, and it is well known that a large number of these votes would have been given to Mr. Steere. Through the negligence, however, of those whose duty it was to forward them, no voting papers of the necessary kind arrived at the Williams until within three or four days of the Bunbury election, when it was altogether too late to vote, and forward the paper to Bun- bury, in the manner prescribed by the Act. . Mr. Hamersley, in his speech at York gave Sir T. C. Campbell the credit of origi- nating the idea of an Audit Act. To that gentleman however the credit is in no way due ; Mr. Steere advocated an, Aud^t Act years ago, during the administration of Go- vernor Weld. A case of considerable pub...
