Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) VASSE, March 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 March 1880

fcntrg lídkxs. (From our own correspondents.) VASSE, March 2. One of the most delightful and pleasant raes meetings came off on Thursday last. Of course we do not look for "first class sport," but more for a friendly gathering and an excuse for an " outing," which so very rarely falls to our lot in this widely-spread district of the South» There is little doubt that a few more such op- portunities for friendly greeting would be im- mensely beneficial to the settlers. We do not meet often enough ; and that, I believe, is the secret of the depression of trade that appears to be the order of tho day in the Sussex dis- trict. Be that as it may, a goodly gathering appeared on the course, bipedal and quadru- pedal, and, to judge from appearances, every one thoroughly enjoyed the day. One remark- able feature was observable, viz.-the absence of the publicans' booths. It appears that in consequence of the distance from the town about seven miles-and the expenses attending conveyance of stor...

The Traveller. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 March 1880

%\t faMkt. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. By Walter Padbury. {Continued.'] On board the s.S. Zealandia, at sea ; Nov. 4th, 1880.-Arrived at Honolulu at 11 o'clock last night, and left at 6. 30. this morning; so we had not much opportunity of seeing the town. 1 went on shore, as far as the princi- pal hotel, which appeared, judging from what little I saw of it, a very well-conducted es- tablishment. I bought a good bunch of ban- anas for a shilling. The streets are planted with trees, and look very nice and picturesque. The principal product of the place is sugar, but they grow all other tropical produce. The island contains about 10,000 Europeans. At the time of our visit there were a great num- ber of vessels lying in the harbor, which is well protected by coral reefs, with a passage for ships to enter through. I should have liked to have had a drive across the island about seven miles-but there was no time. This is th...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, MARCH 9, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 March 1880

THE Übt Snstrafa. ViGiLANS et Audax. ! PERTH, TUESDAY, .MARCH 9, 1880. 11 ' The rudiments of sound knowledge con ' cerning political economy, may-it has been ' found by experience-be communicated at ' a very early age ; . . . . those therefore ' who are engaged in conducting or in pa ' tronizing or promoting education should ' consider it a matter of no small moment to 'instil, betimes, just notions on subjects ' with which all must, iu after-life, be prac ' tically conversant, and in which no class of ' men, from the highest to the lowest, can, in * such a country ^as England at least, be ' safely left in ignorance or in error.' The importance of this maxim of Dr. Whately's was brought rather vividly before us by some words which Mr. Steebe lately ad- dressed to our High School boys. ' Amongst the boys present,' said Mr. Steere, ' were some, probably, who would tate part in the future Government of the colony, and it depended upon the present use they made of their time how fit the...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 March 1880

dtasronal §tofes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. Inquires having been made as to the cause for delay in commencing the Roebourne Court- house, we have ascertained that tenders were invited on the spot, and that the work was also advertised for an unusually long time in all the papers, but that only one tender was re- ceived, and as that was for .£1350-whereas the estimated cost wa s only ¿8S00-the Government did not feel justified in accepting it. With reference to Mr. Richardson's letter which we published in our last issue, in which he comments upon the fencing now being put up along the railway line in the neighbour- hood of Fremantle, we find that ¿he kind of fencing Mr. Richardson suggests as the most suitable, is exactly of the class which it is in- tended to erect through the bush. It was how- ever considered advisable when the line passes through a town, and also when it runs parallel to a high road as it does at Fremantle, that a substantial three railed fence should be put up, and the...

THE P. & 0. CO'S. NEW MAIL|CONTRACT. To the Editor op the West Australian. Sir.-As I think the terms of the new mail contracts are not thoroughly understood by many persons in Western Australia, I send you a short abstract of some of the leading clauses. You will observe that although the P. & O. Co's. ships run from London and Southampton to Port said, and from Sydney to Melbourne, they are not " contract mail packets" during those portions of the voyage ; and that there is no longer a Southampton miil. You will also ob- serve that H. M/s Postmaster General has power to alter or even discontinue some of the services if he thinks fit. The contract with the Govern- ment of Victoria is entirely distinct, and extends from Melbourne to Colombo (or Galle.) The provisions are much the same as in the Imperial contract, but the service is altogether under the control of the Postmaster General of Victoria. I am &c, WILLIAM C. CLIFTON, Agent P. & 0. Co.

&etegnqi$ic Hfctoi' f Associated Press.] London, March 6. A popular movement is on foot in Finland iori the separation of that country from Russia, and its establishment assail independent State. The second reading of the Bill to legalize marriage with a Deceased Wife's Sister has been carried in the Legislature of Canada, by an im- mense majority. China is making extensive preparations for war. The principal cause is the difficulty with Russia with reference to the Euldja province, taken by the latter last year. The Chinese are shewing a defiant spirit to all, and a disposition to elude friendly intercourse with foreigners generally. The House of Commons last night considered a series of resolutions recently introduced by members of the Opposition with the object of conferring upon Municipalities the right of op- tional local Government. After a lengthy de- bate, the resolutions were defeated by a large majority. The latest news from the seat of war in South America states,...

Correspondence. S. S. 'OTWAY' PLEASURE EXCURSION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

(kttttyoûtwi. S. S. 'OTWAY' PLEASURE EXCURSION. To the Editor op the West Australian. Sib,-We sincerely thank your Fremantle correspondent for writing so favorably of the Buccess of the s.s. Otway's pleasure excursion on the 2nd. instant, but we should have been pleased had he mentioned the names of Cap- tain Levick, and his officers, in connection there- with. Though we, as Agents, make the neces- sary rrangements, ßtill the officers are responsi- ble for the due carrying out of the same ; hence the major portion of credit is due to them. We feel highly gratified that the excursionists have expressed themselves so pleased with the day's outing, and, on their part as well as on our own, we publicly thank the manager of the Jarrahdale Timber Company, and his employés for contributing to make the landing at   Rockingham so thoroughly enjoyable. The Harbor Master kindly allowed Mr. But- cher to pilot the steamer to and from Bucking- ham, and we willingly testify to the abl...

Occasional Votes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

dkaáoimí goto. LOCAL ANJy GENERAL. His Excellency the Governor left Rottnest yesterday for Perth, where we understand he will reniian until his departure from the colony by the first April mail, advertised to leave Albany on the 8th of that month. Governor Robinson is expected to arrive at the Sound at i the end of this month, and Sir Harry Ord will j probably time his departure from Perth so as to meet the new Governer at Albany. In reply to a letter from Mr. Major Logue, of Ellendale, which appeared m the last issue of the Inquirer, in which Mr. Logue states that the Governor has the power of reserving the land revenue, we may inform that gentleman that he is mistaken in this idea. The land revenue is ordered to be paid into the general revenue of the colony ' until Parliament shall otherwise provide.' An Audit Act would not, as Mr. Logue justly observes, "prevent expenditure, but it would ensure a thoroughly intelligible state- ment of accounts. Members would not then be forced t...

I sincerly hope and will undertake to prove that the defeat of Mr. Steere's party, is a sign of future progress and prosperity. Yours truly, WILLIAM LOGUE. Harvey, March 2nd.

%h fefaller. FROM NEW YORK TO KING GEORGE'S SOUND, VIA SAN FRANCISCO, NEW ZEALAND, MELBOURNE, AND ADELAIDE. Bv Walter Padbuet. [Continued."] Imperial Hotel, Dunedin, 4th. December, 3879.-Arrived here last night, by train, from Christchurch, the distance being 230 miles. The railway fare, first class, is 3d. per mile in England it is 2d. After we left Oamaru, we passed over some beautiful country ; all the corn was looking well, as did also the thousands of sheep to be seen in the paddocks. But when you come within forty or fifty miles of Dunedin, the country becomes very rough and hilly ; it is also very thickly timbered in places. The railway is cut out of the sides of the hills, and occasionally almost overhangs the sea. It struck me as not being very safe. We had a walk round the town and visited the wharves this morning. There are several dredges at work here, deepening the harbor and reclaiming a lot of land which will prove very valuable for building purposes, and will partly ...

THE FAMINE IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

THE FAMINE IN IRELAND. By J. Brunton Stephens. They shall not perish 1 Not if help can Bave Our hunger-stricken brethren from the grave ! They shall not perish ! With no impious breath We vow that Love shall stronger prove than Death ! Say not, 'Tis vain to strive against the Hand That writeth Judgment o'er a mourning land ; Say not, 'Tis Heav'n that worketh good or ill ; And, if our brother die, it is God's will ; Say not, If He is pleased to hide his face, 'Tis ours and theirs to wait returning grace. Nor, listless, into prayerful chambers creep, And be content to weep with those who weep ; Say not that Nature but fulfils her plan, Through righteous retribution teaching man ; Nor round your easy acquiescence draw The curtain of inexorable law. Say rather, We are now the hands of God To pour our fruits upon their fruitless sod ! Say rather, We are God's incarnate Will To feed his Lambs, His children's mouths to fill, And in our very plenty read the sign That we are chos'n as instru...

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, March 4. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

Corottnr Jete. (From our own correspondents.) GERALDTON, March 4. There is not much to report from this part of the world. You will probably see by the Victorian Express, that coming events are casting their shadows- over the police. With them, the protectors of law and order, it is ' The king is dead, long live the king ! Never mind what the law says, pull with the king.' During the reign of Governor Ord, these gentlemen in blue have been tolerably dis- creet, knowing that the Governor took a common-sense view of the Publicans' Act, and would not tolerate oppression, and that because a man kept a licensed house was no reason why he should be hunted to death. During Sir W. Robinson's term of office, that Governor did all he could to repress drunken- ness, and several publicans were punished for infringing the laws, and this gave the police force the notion that Sir William was desir- ous that the publican should be harried and cases got up against him. And now that the return of Sir...
