VISIT TO THE DORUNDA AT MORETON BAY. MONDAY, DEC. 14, 1885. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

VISIT TO THE DORUNDA AT MORETON BAT. MONDAY, DEC. 14, 1885. Just before 12 last night the Government steamship Otter left the Queen's wharf for the quarantine station at Peel Island. "There were un board Dr. i Wray, as medical officer of the port of Brisbane and Dr. Usher, who had received orders to officiate as superintendent of i quarantine, and render medical assistance to Dr. Hackling if necessary. The boat was also well laden with necessaries for Peel Island, including mattresses, bed clothing, disinfectants, and medicines, and i provisions. Shortly after starting rain [ fell in torrents, and it was with consider- able difficulty that Captain Page picked his way down the river. The Otter anchored between Mud Is- land and St. Helena at 3 in tbe morning, and after waiting an hour proceeded to Peel Island, and dropped anchor off the station just after break of day. The landing of stores was at once proceeded with. Rain was falling heavily, and all speed was made to get the beds an...

A LADY'S LETTER FROM MELBOURNE. Melbourne January 6th 1886. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

A LADY'S LETTER FROM MEL . BOURNE!. Melbourne Januar? 6th 1886. j We are just recovering from the effects pf the hottest day experienced in Mel- bourne since January 1884. The change has come at last. There has been no lack of jollity to wecome in the New Year bands paraded the streets until an early hour on New Year's morning and as tauch good-natured excitement prevailed in the city, as if the bells that announced the year 1886 really "rang in redress to all mankind." The only non-jubilant portion of the community were the housekeepers, who were, of course, bereft of all domestic help. I see that the Colonial Immigration Society are -?' waiting for farther advice from the Victorian Government before sending domestic servants to Melbourne and our legislators true to the selfish instincts of the lords of the creation, are in no hurry to deal with a subject that does not concern themselves. When the golden days of female representation arrive, mus allow tiumger tout celât ' Apropos o...

HORSE BREEDING FOR THE INDIAN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

HORSE BREEDING FOR THE i INDIAN MARKET. If in sheep breeding, wino production, ! and cattle rearing Western Australia bas ' allowed herself to bo far'surpassed hy her , Eastern sisters, there seems to be no reason why in horse breeding she should have submitted to be beaten so far. Some' time ago, a' strong effort was made in the North, chiefly at Champion Bay, to breed horses on a large scale for the Indian market ; but, though fine animals were produced, the enterprise has really had only small results. The main reason for the failure of thisi colony to establish itself as one of the, chief sources trom which the Indian remounts could be drawn was, we believe, a lack of ordinary care.,^ ÍMány Horses, very suitable in sixe and shapes for the purposes ef the Indian army, were landed at Calcutta, but though they were superior in appearance to those imported from the other colonies, they were passed «iver by theílemount Agente. The reason ? for ? the - rejection of th« Western Austral...

THE IMPORTATION OF STOCK QUESTION. FROM THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE IMPORTATION OF STOCK QUESTION. -»- ? ? FBOM THE AUSTBALA8IAN. Once again this oft-debated question has come to the front through the Japse of the time for which the last period of prohibition was enacted in tbe colony of Kew South Wales, lt is much to be regretted that the policy of preserving the health of Australian nocks and herds irom contagious diseases other than those already unfortunately in- troduced has not been decided affirmatively once for all by the whole of the Australian colonies. To leave the question to be re. opened at short intervals, and to be re-dealt with by the chance Minister of the day be- tokens a total want of appreciation of the. gravity of the whole question. It has been patent to ail that In Sydney the task of keeping the law respected and obeyed ha» been almost impossible: Personal influence has sufficed to get the ports opened io de- fiance to the law on several occasions, and it is fortunate that the most serious result of this happy-go-lucky st...

WOOL-GROWING IN THE BURKE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

WOOL-GROWING IN THE BURKE: DISTRICT. The following from the Queenslander is nr. applicable to our own dry districts as it ig. to those of Eastern Australia:-The day has gone by when savants, met io solemn' conclave in London, arrived at the un&ni. mous opinion that the wool of sheep bred lu the most northerly districts of Queens laud would ultimately develop into hair.. There are, however, still not wanting some amongst the wool-growers of the Southern oolonies who maintain that the wool ia the far North will have this tendency unless it is counteracted by constant infusions of bloods from Southern flocks. What the particular type of wool grown at the higher latitudes will ultimately be we have not yet sufficient, data on which to form a reliable opinion, because only in a very limited number of instances have sheep been kept on runs in the Northern districts without admixture of Southern blood. Within the past few day«,, however, evidence has been adduced in Brisbane which ...

THE FAKIR OF OOLU. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE FAKIR OF OOLU. ? Dr. Sylvester, whose recent decease at Melbourne formed an item, lately in our télégraphie intelligence, was a rather remarkable man* and, being well known to many in this colony, the following particulars of his career may prove of interest to many of our readers : Alfred Sylvester was born October 17th, 1831, in Westminster, London. He studied medioine and chemistry, and was a pupil of Professer Taylor. He became principal lecturer at the Boyal Panopticon of Science and Art, London; also, at the Boyal Polytechnic. About the year 1859 he started the ' London Stereoscopic Company, and received a large salary for the production of slides and views, and was the first to intro- duce eartes-de-visite. He had, afterwards, large premises of his own, 5 and 8 New Dorset Place, Clapham Bo ad, London-the largest stereoscopic studio in the world; also, a printing establishment. About the year 1860, when photographing the largest brass instruments ever made (manufactured by...

PREPARATIONS FOR A KING'S REPOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

PREPARATIONS FOE A KING'S REPOSE. -* A canoas account has been preserved-in a M.S. by Peter le Neve, Norroy King-at Arms-of the way in which the bed of. Henry Vii. was made in his palaces of Shene and elsewhere. From his time court ceremonial and, perhaps it may be said Í in general, modern manners were brought under some kind of definite rules. The old feudal Bystein came to an end on Bosworth field. Old families had been destroyed or decimated by the civil wars. Henceforth kings were supreme. Renaissance manners were in full swing all over Europe. This is the way his Majesty's bed was to be made: " The curtains must be drawn [the spelling is modernised], and a gentleman usher must hold the curtains together ; then must two squires of the body stand at the bed's head, and two yeomen of the crown at the bed's feet, and all the stuff laid safe at the bed's feet on the carpet till the contents of the palliasse [which was open in the middle] were re-made. Then a yeoman to leap upon the...

JUDGE WRENFORDSLEY AND THE ALDRIDGE CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

JÛDGJB1 WRENFORDSLEY AND THE ALDRIDGE CASE. j . . ? ?? -?- I la this case the following amusing pas- sages occurred. Mrs. Aldridge was an old lady who had made a will while in a state of declining health,, whioh will WEB disputed on the ground of impaired intellect. We take the following from the report in the Tat numian Mail. Mrs. Salmon, daughter of late William Rumney,^1 and niece of late Mrs. Aldridge, said : I went to live with Mrs. Aldridge, and - did so for six months previous to her death. Previously I had lived with her from 9 years old until I attained 16 years of age. At Christ- mas, 1882, Mrs. Aldridge was an invalid, and I was sent for to nurse her. She was feeble, not well able to walk, and halted in her gait. I read Tlie Mercury to her every morning, before we went out for our drive. Gradually she grew more feeble, and lost the use of one of her hands. We went our drives every day, and on Sundays she was driven to church. I remember her going to Jeru- salem. I rather ...

COMMERCIAL. The Observer reports of the Adelaide Pro- duce market Jan. 8th :-The new year has opened as quietly as the old year closed in the market for breads tuffs, no animation or special briskness haring characterised the week's transactions. Indeed, the general re- port is of dullneBB and absenoe of any dispo- sition towards large operations. Deliveries of new wheat still continue on a very limited scale, and farmers generally evinoe no dispo- sition to sell, in anticipation of better prices ruling. * For export purposes there is at pre- sent no demand whatever, and in this quarter the year's business promises to be very de- ficient. Values are firmer than a week ago, and dealers are showing no anxiety to do businea at present rates. In old wheat a Bale of 10,000 bushels has been made to a Port millier, the parcel being stored with the purchaser. Up the country high rates are reported as being paid, but accurate infor- mation is difficult to obtain owing to the competition betw...

THE CUSTOMS DEPARTMENT. FROM THE WEST AUSTRALLAN[?] [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

A THE CUSTOMS DEPARTMENT. FROM THE WEST ATTSTBAXtXAN I COMMON sense may certainly be ranked among the rarer elements j that go to make up the composition of what is known as human nature. There are not many, indeed, who expect to find it in all places and in all individuals. The few sanguine -minds who may begin life by doing so, alter many a grievous disappoint- ment, will soon learn wisdom, and come to appraise more accurately the properties common to man. Never- theless, there is at least one instanco where we count upon some approach being made to it. The administra- tion of a public department always falls in a short time into a well de- fined channel, and tends to iollow certain fixed lines. These lines are under the direct supervision of men whose practised experience and judg- ment are always at command. Un- der their care the routine system should receive all the improvements possible, and should after a while very nearly approach perfection. Common sense might fairly be ex...

CHAPTEE III. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

. CHAPTEE III. Weil they did wait, and the weeks slipped away, lill I besmn to think I would lose my gloves, when something occurred. One uight a dog (a native beast) got among papa's sheep and killed sixteen of them, and each suc- ceeding night l'or a week it ravaged all the sheep yards for miles round, committing fearful havoc. All the squatters were up in arms against the wily beast. Baits were laid in every direction. Rhoda and I had to care- fully lead-Jumbo by a cord whenever he went out walking, and we never came home without having passed about a dozen pieces of shanks and forequarter of mutton suspended from the lower limbs of trees, just about a convenient height for a dog to reach comfortably without screwing his neck. Well, one morning when this had been going on for a week, papa went down before breakfast to a shepherd's hut on the river, about two miles troui the house, to count the sheep, and he found tue old utan in a state of wild excitement. He had beet) getting up...

There were rumours, too, of Bheep coming beautiful stud sheep. One of the men told one of our men that Mr. Tre- lawny was going to turn hi...

MINUTE GUNS AND WEDDING BELLS. A True Story of a Storm in the English Channel. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

MINUTE GUNS AND WEDDING BELLS. A True Story of a Storm in the English Channel. BY MART K FIELD. Author of "Sown in Weakness," Ac, &o. " What a noise tho wind makes ! it blows great guns to-night and no mistake," grumbled Frank Harvey as he pulled the bedclothes over his ears in order to deaden the sound. " How do you get on, Tom ? I can't go to sleep," he called to the brother who shared bis room. No answer came, for Tom was sleeping so soundly that not even the fury of a November sou'.wester could rouse him, so frank dived under the clothes with the hope of following his example. A vain hope, for a terrific gubt of wind shook the house, shrieked down the chimneys and howled like an infuriated wild beast, aud then in the momentary hush which followed there came an awful " boom." "I don't believe it's the wind after all," said Frank, springing out of bed ; and as he hurried through his short toilet he heard, between tho shrieks of the wind, the same solemn booming at such reg...
