MR. DAVIES' CONCESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

MB, DA VIES' CONCESSION. / f I'-? i WE have received several communica - *ions from the South with regard to the injustice and hardship of an agreement «pon which it is said the Government «orné time ago entered with Mr. M.

This agreement we under«Jarid was one of the last acts of 8ir William Jfobinsoh> , régime, while the Bon. .M. fraser was, «tul Commissioner of «Crown Lands.

THE BANKS OF THE COLONY. FROM THS WEST AUSTRALIAN [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE BANKS OP THE COLONY. FEOM TES WEST A.USTBAXIAN j Wa should regret to be over-saoguine as regards the condition of the colony, for overconfidence is apt to beget recklessness. Still year after year, spite of gloomy prognostications from j i the croaking prophets of evil, we have I taken a hopeful, oftentimes a bright, view of the prospects before us. And year after year we have been justified by the result. When fortuno smiles on us too obviously for the fact to be ignored, we are told- that her bright glance is transient and accidental, due not to our merits but to causes which, in the long run, will rather bring us ruin than prosperity. When a cloud temporarily shades the sun- shine, we are triumphantly informed that a storm is brewing and will shortly burst upon us. But we have pinned our faith to the colony. Fortune has continued to lend us a kindly, helping hand, threatening clouds have rolled by and the onward march has been steady and apparent, the last amusing refuge of t...

THE COMBINED CRICKET MATCH. [FROM THE " ADELAIDE OBSERVER."] MELBOURNE, Jauuary L The cricket match between Melbourne Cricket Club (probable Australian Eleven) and the Combined Intercolonial Thirteen to some extent fell through, the ouly players from the otber colonies tak- j ing part being Bonnor and Jarvis, who both were in the Australian Eleven. j None of the Sydney team could play, and the opposition team was therefore composed entirely of Victorian men, and only eleven instead of thirteen played. Boyle, the captain of the Victorians, «ron the toBS and went to the wickets. The features of the play were the wicket keeping of Jarvis, which was especially brilliant, and the bowling of Palmer. About 2,000 persons were present. The match will be continued to-morrow. Melbourne, January 3. The M.C.C. v. Victorian Eleven match was continued on Saturday. The gather- ing did not como up to expectations. On the first day the Victorian team scored 135 all out, while M.C.C. lost 2 wickets in...

FREMANTLE REGATTA. j FEOM Fremantle a correspondent writes : ] -" The Yacht Club did not shine, on ' Tuesday last, in their management. The 1 Secretary was sailing his boat all day The weather was particularly fine and the wind was fresh, and had the officers attended to their duties, the Regatta would have been a great success. But, aB it was, neglect and indifference was apparent throughout, and unless more interest is shown the whole affair must collapse. The club started with the brightest of prospects and it is very dis- heartening to find so little effort made by the officials of the club to carry out the duties they had undertaken to perform The winning boats were:*-Canoe-pad-, diing Race, Wanda, owned by G.

THE BISHOP OF MELBOURNE. (FBOH THE WEST AUSTE A WAN. ) *THE telegraph informs us that Dr. | MOORHOUSE has been offered the1 vacant bishopric of Manchester, and that he has accepted it. Those who have watched the Bishop of Melbourne's career since his arrival in that city, will feel but little surprise at the offer which has bee» made to bim. or at bis determination to accede to it. When Dr. MOORHOUSE left his Paddington congregation at the invitation of the Victorian Episcopal Committee of selection, he was known as a model parish clergyman, as a man of wide and popular sympathies, extensively acquainted with tbe researches of modern thought, and as one of the most eloquent and effective preachers of the metropolis. But few were prc pared for the remarkable success which he was destined to achieve as a Bishop. From the moment that he landed ut Williamstown to take charge of his new diocese, he at once took his place among tbe leading men of Australia. In especial he leaves the dioce...

The tendei cure, the solicitous attention upon which their success depends, beget* in the cultivators an appreciative in« teliigence and a Jove for their evei changing beauties, which bids him forget while he is busy among them, the selfishness und pettiness too often found in human aoeiety. The same advantages are largely felt and en- joyed by those who till the soil as the business of their lives, and in them it develops regular habits of reason« ing industry such as is the case with few. if any, other occupations. But above all, this is especially true of that branch of cultivators whose busi- ness it is to rear fruit and vegetables for consumption by the community. Where, we may ask, can be found a more Bober, peaceable, and industrious class in any population, ...

STRAY NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

STRAY NOTES ! -«- I The natives of the Scotch Western and Skye Islands are said to enjoy a singular immunity from phthisis, owing to the antiseptic properties in the smoke of the peat that they habitually burn in their dwellings. It ia also a matter of recent discovery that persons residing in the vicinity of sulphur factories are not troubled with asthma and other pulmonary affections. At Jersey not long aero a large and en thusiastic meeting was held by the League formed to secure the abolition of compul- sory service in the Militia. The existing ir- regularities in the law and the hardships en- dured by working men were loudly con- demned, and a resolution to petition the English Government to interfere and abolish compulsion, as the Jersey States refused to listen to the demands of the people, was un- animously rgreed to.

THE GRACE OF HER MAJESTY. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

THE GRACE OF HER MAJESTY, I was onoe strongly reminded of the groat geniuses of the stage by the mien and deportment of the Majesty of England. It was at the opening of the Albert-ball. The building was crowded to its utmost,.and the Queen walked down the vast ampitheatre to what may be called the stage» preceded and' followed by great dignitaries, and accom- panied by the Prince and Princess of Wales. When she turned to face the multitude 8,000 - people were standing in her honour, and the cheers were defening. And then there came across her features an expression which it ia hardly possible to describe-her fa¿c fairly shone with gratification at the loyalty of her people and motherly affection for them in return. She courtesied again and again, lower and lower, exactly like a great actress playing a queen who had been called out to receive the plaudits of her audience. Bah of all the famous mistresses of the stage that X have seen, the women of genius who en- raptured nations, non...

The Recent Extreme Heat. [Newspaper Article] — Western Mail — 23 January 1886

The Recent Extreme Heat. The great burst of heat which fell upon Western Australia in Christmas week and reappeared for forty-eight hours about New Year's Day, has also tried the strength and endurance of our neighbours. The heat wave appears to have travelled east- ward. Our highest temperature occurred on Christmas Day, or rather on the fol- lowing forenoon, Dec. 26. In Adelaide cool weather was experienced at Christ- mas time, but then the thermometer rose, until on Jan. 4 it stood at 112 degrees, Fahrenheit in the shade in the day time, and it fell but little during the night.   Sleep, we are told, was almost impossible.   The effect on those who were ill or in     weak health was most serious. On Tues-     day the wind changed, and copious rains   fell. Melbourne and the whole colony of Victoria, suffered similarly much about the same time, the temperature in var- ious localities ranging ...

A STERN CHASE. -- A STORY IN THREE PARTS.   BY MRS. CASHEL-HOEY. " A stern chase is a long chase." THE FIRST PART. CHAPTER VIL The shock had overtaken Rodney as he was strolling towards home, observing the wondrous beauty of the   tropical night sky, with pleasure that was never abated by custom. He was ascending a stony and hilly street when the ominous rumble and the sickening heave came, and he stumbled and fell forward, but re- ceived no hurt beyond a slight bruis- ing of his hands. Although an earth- quake is a phenomenon to which no man get used, Rodney recovered his presence of mind and his feet simultaneously, and made for an open space, reaching it just as the second and slighter shock occurred. This time he did not lose his footing, and as the terrified people poured into the comparatively safe place which he had reached, he immediatly ap- plied himself to studying the " tremb- or" in its moral aspect. He would not have pretended for an instant th...
