NOTES FROM YORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 24 February 1880

NOTES FROM YORK. BY PETER SIMPLE. Since my last we have been nearly scorched to death. The heat has been something terrific in its intensity ; large bush-fires raging in every di- rection, while our picturesque little town, en- veloped in smoke, has forcibly reminded one of a beautiful lake on a foggy morning. Happily as yet no serious harm has been done by these de- vastating pests of the summer. The result of our election has put the right man in the right place, and I venture to say given general satisfaction. Even the most ram- pant Radical among us must feel bound to admit that the return of Mr. Hamersley is an undeni- able proof that the district is unmistakably against a change in our constitution, especially when we consider that the electors, by virtue of the ballot, were enabled to record a conscientious vote, either for or against the change. The ar- rangements at the Court House were complete, and no one can gainsay the fact that the voting was secrecy in its integrity. ...

Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] July 31. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

(Clorato. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By I ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.'] July 81. Hall a mile from our camp tms morning we crossed a tributary of the main river, and con- tinued our journey for 5J miles, still through first class country, till we came toa flat-topped hill. Scarce a tree was to be seen on the roll- ing plains, except along the banks of the nu- merous streams which traverse them in every direction. From the hill I wished to get a round of angles, so I gave the party orders to travel on for eight miles, and camp upon the river, while Campbell and I ascended it. Hav- ing spent some time at our work, we got upon the tracks, and rejoined our companions at the halting place they had chosen. Between the hill and the river we passed through some broken red sandstone ridges, well covered with feed and interspersed with grassy flats. Pierre and Dower are very ill again today, and unless they get better soon, I fear they will never see ...

A VALUABLE EXPOBT TRADE. TO THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

A VALUABLE EXPOBT TBADE. To the Editor op the West Australian. Sir.-Every one interested in pastoral pur- suits must be greatly pleased at learning the success of the shipment of frozen meat sent from -Australia by the Strathleven, but I think we should not sit still and let shipping firms in the Eastern Colonies purchase from the patentees the exclusive right of shipping from Australia, which, I am led to infer, they may do, by a letter from a Mr. Little, published in the Australasian of Jan. 24th. Mr. Little appears by his letter to be the principal agent in Aus- tralia for the patentees (Messrs. Bell, Coleman & Co.), and he suggests that one halfpenny per lb. on meat shipped would cover coBt of freezing and royalty, but wonld not of course cover freight. This would, surely, leave a good margin for profit to the producer. And when we consider that the market in Eugland is practically unlimited« assuredly it be- hoves those interested in the matter to lose no time in openin...

THE West Australian. VIGILAKS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 27, 1880. WORKING OF THE BALLOT ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

THE Wiest %xiáxúmx. ViGiLAKs et Audax. ^ PERTH, FRIDAY, FEB. 27, 18S0. " WORKING OF THE BALLOT ACT. * The ballot has in its first application caused several surprises, and there can be no doubt that electors have fully appreciated the per- fect security which it provides, and have felt none of those misgivings as to the bona fides of secrecy in its working which it was suggested that they possibly might. It is somewhat humiliating to be obliged to confess that one cannot get men to vote -we would not say according to their con- sciences, because conscience plays probably an insignificant part in the affair - but according to their lights and their intellig- ence, according to their inclinations, without providing that their actions shall be veiled in the profoundest secrecy. But such, ap- parently, is the case. Nor perhaps have those a right to express much surprise, who, in Western Australia are acquainted with the conditions which to a great extent regulate the business arrangemen...

"WHERE IGNORANCE IS BLISS 'TIS FOLLY TO BE WISE." TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

««WHERE IGNORANCE IS BLISS 'TIS FOLLY TO BE WISE." To the Editor of the West Australia». | Sir.-It is a sad thing, and, unfortunately, very common, for peuple to speak and write about matters that they do not understand. Not long ago I read in the Herald an article in which it recommended that the revenue should he increased by taxing the squatter. The edi- tor of the Herald says-and I suppose he has thoroughly studied the subject upon which he ?writes,-44 that the country to the Eastward of York and Champion Bay is equally aa good, and should be taxed to the same extent as land twenty miles from Perth or any other of the principal towns of the colony." As far as the country to the Eastward of York is concerned, I think Mr. Clarkson has proved that the squat- ter is taxed to the full value of the runs he oc- cupies. And I will try and show that the lessee to the Eastward of Champion Bay pays the Go- vernment quite as much rent as he can afford, considering the difficulties and hards...

?\t UtofaUst. MISS HOVEL. (From the French.)

She did*not know thai Ray- mond's quietude was simply the outcome o£ a strong will ; she did not see how, when she left him, ho, sat pale and still with his face buried in his hands, and how, when lie heard Miss Rovel's voice and laugh under his window, he suddenly sprang up with a passionate exclamation of despair and grief, and rushed'ont of the room. But if her brother's calmness astonished ! Miss Agatha, Meg on the other hand gave her still more to think about. For two days Miss Rovel's manners were really singular. Her temper was irritable, her colour was un- naturally heightened, her gaiety forced, with a dark and strange expression in her face. Miss Agatha was greatly perplexed. Most decidedly if she could hare mended it with- out leaving an unseem...

LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

LADY'S LETTER FROM LONDON. To 'hie Editor oe the West Australian. Dear Sir.-You ask me to write to you, but I feel that it is almost impossible to collect my ideas in the midst of a fog so dense that it is like "a darkness which may be felt." Naturally, you sec, the weather comes first ; and, iudeecl, such weather as we have had the last fifteen months is an unfailing topic, in its rapid varia- tion, reminding one of the oft quoted lines : " First it rained and then it thew, Then it hailed and then it snew ; Then we had a shower of rain, Then it froze and snew again." Imagine all the fog of Western Australia com- pressed into your Town Hall ; add a little sul- phur and pepper, with a good deal of bad but- ter, all well beaten up, and yon have some idea of the atmosphere and surroundings of London life just now. The season ought to be a festive ona ; but the past year, with its many commer- cial failures, its wars, and other public calami- ties, lias laid a heavy cloud on vast number...

RELIGIOUS CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

RELIGIOUS CONTROVERSY. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.- In all parts of the British Empire there are certain institutions that owe the hearty and general support which they receive from the public to the neutrality of their constitution as regards politics and religion. Such are Mechan- ics' Institutes and Working Men's Associations. Their members in the great majority of cases combine, upon the expressed or implied under- standing that, however varied and complete their libraries may be, there shall be nothing of party " expression," politically or religiously, to mar their union, - nothing by which a majority may vex or annoy a ministry. Wherever this principle is abandoned, the institution breaks faith with its supporters, and forfeits public confidence. I believe that in Perth and Fremantle this neutrality has been honestly and prudently ob- served, but I am very sorry to see from a notice in the Victorian Express of Feb. 18th, that the Working Men's Hall at Geraldton...

Wyt fektter. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. By Walter Padbury. [Coaíinued.] Big Tree Station Hotel, 10th Oct.-Came here last night by train, 170 miles, from San Francisco, and seventy miles by coach. For about twenty miles of the first part of the journey yesterday we travelled over beautiful clear country, with scarcely a tree to be Been as far as the eye could reach, and so entirely over stocked with sheep that there was scarcely a blade of grass to be seen in any direction. We passed one flock of sheep where they were '* dipping" for scab, and another flock which was being sheared in the grease. The wool of both flocks was ex- ceedingly fine, but very short, and the sheep themselves were very poor-a wrinkly, gul letty kind of merino. They shear, mostly, twice in the season,-in the spring and at " fall" time. They have very large flocks, but I think the sheep as a rule are miserably managed. Farther on, the country wa...

In the House of Lords yesterday an im- portant discussion took place on Afghan affairs. The Duke of Argyll attacked the policy of the Government, and Lord Bea- consfield, replying, said Bussia had sought to embarass England in Asia, and it was the duty of the Government to secure tho gates of India. Until this object was achieved, it would bo impossible to retire from our present position. He further added that at the present time there was absolute inactive anarchy among the people of Afghanistan.

Conntr[?] Letters. GERALDTON, Feb. 14. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

Gforantrg ^tetters. GERALDTON, Feb. 14. (Fro?« our Correspondent.) I The elections are over, and the result is as every one expected-Brown returned by a large majority of 5S votes. The Victorian Express, or rather its infallible Editor, worked hard in the cause of tho opponent, Mr. Henry Gray, and endeavoured, with his utmost power, to show that the feeling in favor of Responsible Govern- ment was wide spread; but all in vain, as the re- sult of the election proves directly to the contr- ary. This statement, in fact, was on a par with many others emanating from the same source -made to suit the immediate wishes of the editor, and his party (if he have one), without any regard whatever to the actual facts of the case. A feeling of annoyance and disgust prevails here amongst all the respectable portion of our community at the weekly issue of mendacious twaddle in this "light of the age". Take, for   instance, Mr. Brown's meeting and address to the electors on Friday last ...

THE "VICTORIAN EXPRESS." TO THE EDITOR OE THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

THE "VICTORIAN EXPRESS.'   To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-The mendacious statements and many questionable reports that are weekly put for- ward by that paragon of perfection among news- papers, the Victorian Express, have induced me to request you to allow me, through the medium of your columns, to refute the deliberate mis- statements made in the issue of that paper of the 11th instant, when reporting the result of Mr. Maitland Brown's political meeting. Mr. Brown's speech itself is so reported that I doubt whether he will be able to recognise it as ema- nating from himself ; but no doubt, as the re- presentative of a Perth newspaper was present a truthful statement of what he said will reach you. The Vic'orian Express states that " the chair- man now put Mr. Gray's want of confidence motion, which was unanimously carried, every member of Mr. Brown's committee on the plat- form and the others holding up their hands. This statement, Sir, is wholly and utterl...

Occasional [?]otes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 February 1880

Occasional Notes LOCAL AND GENERAL. The meeting to be held in the Town Hall this evening for the purpose of organising some steps for initiating au Irish Relief Fund in this colony, will, we trust, be numerously and in fluently attended. Just at the present moment many of the poor people in the " ould counthry" are actually starving for lack of the common necessaries of life ; and every man and woman in the colony who come to know what is the matter in this respect, will, surely, put their hands in their pockets, and subscribe to the extent of their means to relieve this distress. Irish patriots of the fervent type, like Mr. Parnell, who yearn to relieve their brethren from the iron heel of despotism, and the obligation to pay rent for the land they cultivate but do not own, are pretty sure to find sympathetic audiences in America, if not in Australia. But this is no time for discussing political grievances. We may safely eschew polities while people are perish- ing for lack of food...
