ALBANY, January 1,1875. BANQUET TO HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR WELD, ON HIS PLACING THE FIRST POST OF THE TELEGRAPH TO ADELAIDE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

ALBANY, January 1,1875. BANQUET TO HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR WELD, ON HIS PLAC- ING THE FIRST POST OF THE TELEGRAPH TO ADELAIDE. (Continued from our last) In proposing the Colonial Secretary's health, SIR T. C. CAMPBELL said-Gentle- men, I have now the pleasure of asking you to drink to the health of a guest whom we are all glad to see amongst us -the Hon. the Colonial Secretary. It is particularly appropriate on this occas- ion, when we are bidding farewell to His Excellency Governor Weld, and looking back at the work which he has done, that we should, after drinking the health of His Excellency, drink that of the Co- lonial Secretary, who in his official capa- city has so loyally and zealously aided the Governor in his work for the ad- vancement of the colony, whose business it has been to carry in the Council, the measures which His Excellency had devised, and who has so ably succeeded in doing so. To his ability has been chiefly due, the successful practical work- ing of our prese...

TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

TO THE EDITOR. Sir,-Rather more than a fortnight ago I heard that a paragraph had ap- peared in your paper of the 15th ultimo, reflecting upon the course of action which I judged it right to pursue with reference to a recent funeral at Geraldton. I, of course, went in search of the paper con- taining the article, but hitherto I have been unable to find it ; however, I fell in with a copy of a later issue (the 18th ultimo), in which I read a letter on the same subject, signed " W T.," a letter bitter in spirit and offensive in expres- sion, and which it is unnecessary to no- tice further. I write to you to-day, Sir, not with the view of entering into a newspaper corre- spondence with your anonymous corre- spondents, who may be-well, anybody ; neither do I write to defend myself, for the excellent reason that my conduct re- quires no defence, but simply and solely in the hope of in some measure guiding the public mind to a right judgment upon the important question of Funeral Services...

ALBANY (January 7th). [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

ALBANY (January 7th). You will have already received a' fulï account of the festivities of New Year's Day. The whole affair was a great suc- cess, and the Albany people may feel satisfied that their farewell entertain* ment to Governor Weld was, as far as the resources at their command would permit, really worthy of the occasion, and His Excellency's last speech in Western Australia, delivered before many who were almost strangers to him,, pre- viously, has made him many real ana lasting friends, who deeply regret that he has not been left amongst us a year or two longer to carry out the progressive work which he had so ably begun. Scarcely had Governor Weld received the last farewell of the people of Albany before they were called upon to bid a first welcome to his successor, Governor Robinson ; and, by-the-way, I may men- tion that in Governor Robinson's reply to the address presented to him by the Town Council and Roads Board on that occasion, he consciously or unconsciously used...

BUNBURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

BUNBURY. The annual Roads Board election for the Wellington district took place at Bunbury on Thursday, 31st ult., the three retiring members, Messrs. J. G. Thompson, R. H. Rose, and James Maguire, offering themselves for re-elec- tion, together with two additional candi- dates.

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SITTINGS. Before His Honor, Chief Justice Burt.) WEDNESDAY, 6th, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SITTINGS, Before His Honor, Chief Justice Burt.) WEDNESDAY, 6th, 1875. THOMAS MATTHEWS, a respectable-looking man, a butcher by trade, answered to his re- cognizance, and was arraigned upon a charge of stealing a cow, the property of Mr Michael Morrissey, at Champion Bay, oo the 5th Aug. last. A second count charged the prisoner with receiving the cow, knowing it to have been stolen. The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and was defended by Mr. Howell, with whom Mr. Burt. The following evidence was adduced on be- half of the Crown : Police Sergeant Patton, stationed at Champion Bay, said that on the 7th September he was on the jetty at Geraldton when the .. Georgette" started for Fremantle, and observed a number of hides being placed on board. The skins were consigned to Mr. Ranford, at Perth.

YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

YOEK. A destructive bush fire happened some days since in this district, attended with more than ordinary evil results, and which brought-almost ruin to a very persevering and deserving man-George Everett, of Avondale. This is not the first loss he has sustained by fire-his crops having been destroyed some few seasons since. The present catastrophe was caused by a child throwing a lighted match on some inflammable article, dur- ing the momentary absence of the mother. In a few minutes the fire ex- tended to the stables and out-buildings, destroying five valuable horses, a quan- tity of harness, and about 80 bushels of barley, and in spite of every exertion to stay the flames,, the fire caught the standing wheat destroying the whole crop of 12 acres, containing about 160 bushels, in a few minutes, thus, in less than one hour, consuming £6250 worth of property. Great sympathy is felt for Everett, who is known to be a pushing and deserving man. Some have, already, practicably supplied ...

GERALDTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 12 January 1875

GERALDTON. A new year has opened upon us, and the advent was duly celebrated by the portonians of the Victoria district by a full band of concertinas, triangles, and empty kerosene tins, promenading the streets during the night, and driving sundry of the peaceful inhabitants to distraction. Great credit is due to the management of the leader ; not asking for anything, he simply planted his forces opposite your door or window, and dis- coursed anything but sweet sounds, until you shelled out what the Arabs deemed a sufficient ransome. New year's day was a very busy one in Geraldton, when boat racing, rnnning, jumping, greasy poles, sculling, duck hunt, &c, were vigorously kept up until about four o'clock, when every one retired well pleased with the day's sports. Whether the improve- ment is attributable to the Good Tem- plars or the advanced stat$ of civilization I cannot say, but drunkenness, or any- thing bad in the conduct or conversation of the men was the very rare exce...

%\z Mîûmi %tüxúmx Stmeí* SOLUM NON MUTAT GENTJS. FRIDAC^AS5ARY1L5^75. WE printed in our last number a letter from Rev. D. G. WATKINS explanatory of his principles, opinions, and action, in respect of supplementary services to be used by Good Templars, or others, at the burial of their dead in cemeteries of the Protestant Episcopal Church of Western Australia, and we added our reasons for printing the letter, which introduced the subject, and on which Mr. WATKINS animadverts with some asperity, and a brief expression of our own judgment on the case. This we presume that Mr. WATKINS has not taken the trouble to read, for, if he had, he would have per- ceived that we recognized the same ob jection to the custom of the Good Temp- lars which he does ; and further that we deprecated the threat under an appeal to personal interest which the letter in question contained.

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS TO THE EDITOR OF "THE ARGUS." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 15 January 1875

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS TO THE EDITOR OF " THE ARGUS." Sir,-Permit me through the medium of your valuable journal to warn and to direct the attention of the public to a gross outrage which is being perpetrated m the shape of spurious imitations of Holloway's Pills and Ointment, which are being vended as the genuine article. Detectives are at work endeavouring to discover the originators of the fraud. As yet they have been unsuccessful, though it has been pretty well ascer- tained that the said imitation is manu- factured in the colony, and is not imported. The spurious resemble the genuine articles only in external appear- ance and the manner in which packed up. I have had both the pills and the ointment analysed, and find that the pills contain opium in a rather excessive degree, but the ointment is simply lard, with a slight trace of turpentine. By inserting the above you will confer a favour ou the public, and oblige yours, &c, PERCY L. HARDNAGE, Special Travelling Agent for Tho...
