TOODYAY, Feb 24. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

TOODYAY, Feb 24. I was in hopes that when we imported a real live Supei-intendeiit of Roads, all our troubles as regards our roads would cease ; but I do not find that our highways are kept in better re- pair or more clear of fallen timber than they used to be. Five days ago, a large tree (or rather two trees) fell across the road, one on the 13-mile flat, and one on the long Wanaloo hill ; these trees remain there still. In the pre- sent hot weather, we are obliged to travel in the night, and it is not pleasant for your lead- ing horse to be brought up by a tree across the road. The probabilities are that you would be obliged to camp and wait until daylight to ex- tricate your team, and be obliged to travel all next day to make up for lost time, with the thermometer at 120 deg. When Mr. Phillips was chairman of the road board he employed those people living at the bottom of the Mount to pick off the loose stones that get worked out by the horses feet ; there- by lessening the risk ...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, MACRH 5, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

THE Wita %míxúm. ViGiLANS et Audax. PERTH, FRIDAY, MACRR h, 1880. The result of the elections in "Victoria has no doubt given sincere gratification to every one interested in the political welfare of the Australian colonies. Eight is certainly by no means a large working majority, and Mr. Service has had hard work before him, and many difficulties to contend with ; but, al- though the majority is by no means so over- whelming as we might have wished, it is at any rate large enough to put an end to the reign of as contemptible a political charalatan as ever mismanaged the affairs of an Eng- lish community. Accustomed as we have been to see the most curious political phenomena exhibited in our sister colonies, to see men of doubtful antecedents, limited education, and social in- significance, raised to supreme power by sheer force of impudence and clapper-like industry of tongue, still a Berry seated in the chair of office and applying Bcrryism to the management of the affairs of that...

HIGH SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

HIGH SCHOOL ANNIVERSARY. Monday last, March the 1st, being the second anniversary of the opening of the High School, the scholars were entertainsd at supper by the head master. There were also present, all the governors of the institution-with the excep- tion of the Hon. J. H. Thomas and Mr. Shen- ton, who were unavoidably absent ; also the Hon. the Colonial Secretary, and the Iíev. G. H. Sweeting, M.A. Mr. E. W. Haynes, aud Mr. J. C. II. James (who has been of great as- sistance to the boys in their annual entertain- ments), were also among the iuvited guests, but both were absent, owing to indisposition. Mr. Davies in proposing the health of " The Governors" thanked them for their presence and for the great interest which they took in the school, amidst the multifarious duties of public life. They always contrived to devote some part of their time to the consideration of the school and its interests. He boned that soon the institution would take its place among the public schools ...

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, Feb. 25. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, Feb. 25. The barque Daylight has discharged her car- go, amongst which are the bogie engines im- ported by the Government for the Northern Railway. These said bogies may be, and doubt- less are, good ones to go, but certainly in their present disjointed state they are ' rum uns' to look at. The Daylight proceeds to Sharks Bay to take in pearl shells, and will then return to Champion Bay to fill up with lead ore, and wheat from Crowther & Co.'s and Mr. Shen ton's. The first remittance for the relief of the suf- ferers by the famine in Ireland was made last mail by the Rev. T. C. Laurence, who had col- lections in the Wesleyan Church, Geraldton, at both services, a few Sundays back. It is the Intention of the rev. gentleman to make col- lections in all the Wesleyan places of worship for the same object. The amount sent may appear small when compared with what our richer neighbours can contribute, but it is a proof that...

The Traveller. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

m FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. By Walter Padbury. [Continued^] Palace Hotel, San Francisco, October 17. Returned here yesterday from Madeira. The proprietor of this hotel has just been enter- taining General Grant and his suite, together with about 700 or 800 others, at his (the hotel proprietor's) country residence-a perfect palace, they tell me, about thirty miles from town. The entertainment of the General and his party cost the nice little sum of £8000. But they say money is no object to ' mine host.' I cannot go further without protesting against the high price charged for drinks at the American hotels. I consider it outrageous -nothing less than two dollars (83. 4d.) for a bottle of whiskey ; forty or fifty cents for a pint bottle of ale ; a dollar for a bottle of the cheapest colonial wine-not a bit better stuff than is made from our sweet-water grapes. The other day, I wanted a nobbler of pale brandy, for whic...

DONGARRA, Feb. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

DONGARRA, Feb. 28. Since my last, nothing very important has occurred. The harvest is now safely gathered in, and I think the average can be fairly placed at thirteen bushels per acre. All the coasters are now busy carrying grain to market, and our port is seldom without a sail. Great com- plaints are made as to the tram-line and trucks on the jetty, which are very much out of repair, and want attending to. The body of a native woman was found a short time since, some 120 miles to the East- ward of this, on the Neughan road, under sus- picious circumstances. It was brought in here for an inquest, and the coroner's jury returned a verdict of "wilful murder against some per-   son or persons unknown." Dr. Elliott's evidence was, I believe, very conclusive. The day after the inquest, a man named Richardson was com- mitted for this murder. The annual race meeting was held on the 20th instant, and, altogether, was a decided success. The stewards are to be congratulated on th...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 5 March 1880

dtesional Boies. LOCAL AND GENERAL. i We thoroughly endorse Mr. Steere's remarks at the anniversary celebration of the High School, relative to the important influence which the playground exercises in education, for, no doubt, the training there received, and the associations there formed, are indelible. But, in how many schools is it deemed neces- sary that the teaching of the playground should contribute in any way towards the leading of youthful minds and bodies out of natural ig- norance to knowledge ? We fear, in very few. There is no reason whatever why in a colony bke this, v here land is plentiful and cheap, there should be a single school in any town without adequate accommodation for the health- ful recreation oi'ihe pupils attending it. To boys the playground is an institution of indis- pensable importance. The hours spent in it teach lessons that can be learnt in no other way-the mastery of temper, the place cf the individual as one unit of a group, the value of persona...

&f%ra|Mí. fjefös. [Associated Press.] London, March 2. The Times states that Mr. Berry's overthrow results from the popular revulsion of feeling against his extravagant domineering policy. The electors, it says, have by their vote con- demned not only the Ministerial Reform Bill but also the whole proceedings of the Govern- ment. The Pall Mall Gazette, the Morning Pos,t and the Standard contain articles congratulating the people of Victoria on the result of the elec- tions. Constantinople, March 2.

éaqjlorafa. From the Be Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] Auqust 18th. We got away early this morning, steering E.N.E. through very high grass for five miles, when we struck the Victoria, which was run- ning here in a Northerly direction. The water was too deep to enable us to cross, so we traced the river upwards for a couple of miles, hoping to find a ford. We were stopped, however, by the Wickam at its junction with the Victoria, and obliged to retrace our steps. A mile above the place where we first struck the river we made an attempt to get over, and after a great deal of trouble we succeeded in crossing the main body of the stream. The water was five feet deep, so we swam our horses, and carried the packs across on our backs. Palm trees, bamboo, and cane are very thick upon the river's banks ; the high grass also and deep gullies make it very difficult to get down to the water's edge. The bed of this great river has numer...

ïï\t IjWist, MISS HOVEL. (From the French.) [Continued] 'Why nota Prince,' thought Raymond, laughing softly to himself, as he marked the distinguished bearing of the nocturnal ma- rauder, who rapidly disappeared in the dark- ness ; ' Pamela's soul is not a vulgar one ; man, in this dark beauty's estimation, com- mences far above the common herd, and her ¡ arrows are not shot at lowly game.' It sud- ' denly, however, occurred to Raymond that this nicht owl he had seen might have another object than to court a susceptible Jiegress, that this supposed adorer oC thick and sooty lips might employ them for a pur- pose that made his blood boil up with rage to think of-for the purpose of transmitting messages to lips, not thick and sooty, but red and ripe, belonging to a face not black, but pink and white, and glorious in its beauty. He passed in review all the men he knew who might be guilty of such wickedness as to covet the dove he was guarding in his cot ; -n ith hatred he thought of th...
