Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: [Continued.] August 30th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.} August 30th. We started again before sunrise, still steer- ing due East- After travelling twenty miles without a change in the character of the coun- try and without a sign of water, we halted, very tired after our long ride. An hour's rest and we again saddled up, following the same course until sundown, which came upon us about fourteen miles from our midday halt ; and, as both our horses and ourselves were very much fagged, we camped where we were, with- out water. For eighty miles now, we have been travel- ling over country of the same description, all well grassed, and the horizon as level as the sea. Here and there are a few clay swamps which no doubt hold water in the winter time, but today we have neither seen a drop of water nor any place that would be likely to hold it for long, and a few small birds have been the only sign of life. I have made up my mind however to push t...

A DANGEROUS STATE OF AFFAIRS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 12 March 1880

A DANGEROUS STATE OF AFFAIRS. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-Having had occasion to travel on horse back over some of the branch roads in the Wel- lington district, I was much surprised to find that, notwithstanding the much-talked-of loan for road purposes, the roads are in many places in a most neglected state,-ruts and hollows worn in them, and not refilled ; while some of the bridges are in a condition positively dangerous to life and limb. For instance, there was a bridge over the Ludlow on the mail coach road to Busselton, but it has boen burnt down and not yet reconstructed, while there is no barrier whatever at either side to prevent travellers at night from riding or driving right into a chasm full of the débris. There is another bridge near the Harvey in a similar state ; and between Bunbury and Dardanup there are no less thau five bridges so damaged that a horse might easily break a leg in one of the holes through the roadway. This latter line connejts Bun- bu...

THE ttstraßa». i ViGiLANs et Audax. 1 i PERTH, FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1S80. While it cannot but be satisfactory to find that the Government have secured the fur- ther services of the steamers Rob Roy and Ottcay upon our coast at a fairly reasonable rate of subsidy, it must at the same time be a source of great regret that the third clause in the Resolution adopted by the Legis- lature on the 29th August last, on the the subject of steam communication, has not been carried into effect. The words of the clause were, ' that steam communication-if possible monthly-should be established be- tween Champion Bay and the North West Coast.' We understand that negotiations with re- gard to this proposed new service proved abortive at the outset, in consequence of the manifestimpossibilitythattwosmall steamers, having ver}' ample work cut out for them on our Southern and South Western shores, should at the same time perform that work satis- factorily according to contract, and combine with it freque...

Mr. Stein, a watchmaker at Prahran, com- mitted suicide today by cutting his throat. Over two hundred sovereigns were found in a belt on his body. London, March 10. The Government are shaping the issue to be placed before the country at the ensuing elec- tions on the lines of the Home Rule tactics and their own foreign policy. Mr. W. Shaw, M.P. for County Cork, and leader of the Home Rule party, has issued an address to his fellow countrymen in which he charges the Premier with placing before the electors false issues, tending to excite the worst passions of the ignorant. He invited the Irish people to answer the missive, so insulting to them, which Lord Beaconsfield addressed to the Duke of Marlborough, by returning an over- whelming majority pledged to the settlement of the great national question of Home Rule. The Royal Commission upon Agriculture ...

Cmmirp Meto. (From our own correspondents.) BUNBUBY, March 11. The Good Templars last week entertained the Bevd. Mr. Withers at a tea meeting. The xevd. gentleman is about to remove to wie Wil- liams, of which district he has lately received the charge, and a large number of persons as- sembled to bid him farewell. The proceedings passed off very well, and a most enjoyable even- ing was spent. There is great dissatisfaction here with re- gard to the steam service. Complaints are made as to the time of calling, and as to the shortness of stay both at Bunbury and the Vasse, com- plaints also as to the difficulties often experi- enced in obtaining the cargo from the vessel which is destined for these ports. The inhabi- tants lately memorialised the Governor through Mr. Steere, but the reply received did not per- mit the hope that any action was likely to be taken which would enable these districts to de- rive greater benefits from the coastal steam service than they do at present.

THE Übt ^nstraßäit. Vigilans et Attdax. -ï PERTH, TUESDAY, MAROM 16, 1880 T AUCTION versus VALUATION. l At the risk of tiring our readers by further reference to a subject which has been worn rather threadbare of late, we think it well to bring certain information recently received from Queensland, to their notice, with re- gard to the methods of dealing with pastoral leases which that colony has successively adopted. It is probable that although the discussion raised on the land question is at an end, many persons may still be directing their thoughts to the subject of the best means to employ in order to arrive at a fair rental^ value of the pastoral lands of the co- lony, and we think that the experience of Queensland which has tried both of those proposed in the late correspondence-ap- praisement and sale by auction-may be of use in enabling them to arrive at a just con- clusion. When Queensland started her separate life, she was a rich and prosperous squatting community, purely...

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 March 1880

(taáonal flotes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. \] Seeing that we are really desirous to see political economy made a prominent subject of instruction in what we might call our second- ary schools, it may perhaps be worth while to notice some remarks which appeared in a con- temporary on this subject. The writer is evi- dently unaware that it is now acknowledged at home that this science should form a part of education, and that admirable works, primers, as well as more advanced text books, have been specially prepared by eminent men with this objeet. There is no such thing as Whig political economy and Tory political economy, although there may be Whig and Tory appli- cation or misapplication of doctrines, which are never admitted by professors of the science except when they can be proved to be abso- lutely true. The statement that the doctrines of political economy are as easy to learn as the ten commandments, shows an ignorance which is certainly surprising. Nothing perhaps is more difficul...

The dwelling-house is constructed of brick, and is a very nice building, with everything very comfortable in it-a first class kitchen, a com- modious store room, butcher's establishment, i a fine large stable finished off in the best of style, coach house, etc., the remains of a splendid garden, and the best wool shed I have ever been in, affording room enough in- side to accommodate fully two thousand sheep at a time, on a grated floor, and forty shearers. There is also one of the latest and most improved wool presses,-in fact, every- thing requisite for carrying on a first class station. The owner used to rent 100,000 acres of land here, and, I am told, kept 90,000 sheep ; yet all the land he secured was 640 acres, which is all he has ...

(Kmxtsyvàtm. SETTING CLASS AGAINST CLASS. To the Editor of the West Australian. Dear Sir.-Your .Fremantle contemporary A little while ago began to write on a subject he 'does not understand-I might perhaps say, with greater exactitude, on one out of many, which he does not understand - the land, and our land regulations. He said very crude things at first, but gradually, as the discussion pro- gressed, he picked upa little information, which, however, he has failed fairly to assimilate as yet. He was accused of trying to set class against class, and on March the 6th last, he expresses himself in terms of anger with regard to this ac- cusation, which he declares is quite groundless. He points out also the absurdity of asserting that he said what he did say, and maintains that in reality he propounded all manner of things that he didn't. And yet in this very same num- ber the ' setting-elass-against-class ' process is artfully continued. I give him credit for a good deal of artfulness...

(Advt.)-Holloway's Ointment and Pills. -The Recent Changes of Temperature.-It is important that such changes as have recently taken place in the temperature of the atmos- phere should not be treated with indifference. The public should be watchful of the effects which they frequently have on the body. The skin and the nervous system suffer severely erysipelas, rheumatism, colds, sore throats and many other complaints are frequently generated through the above causes. When symptoms show themselves, they should be properly at- tended to. Hoiloway's Ointment and Pills are wonderful remedies, and eradicate the above at- tacks immediately they appear. The Ointment should be rubbed into the parts affected, and the Pills taken according to the printed directions Notice to Consignees from Adelaide.

Exploration From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION : By ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] Sept. 4. One of our horses could not be found this morning, although we hunted about for nearly two hours. Luckily we came across a stray horse which we easily secured, and, as we should be obliged to return by the same route, took no further trouble with regard to our own. Fol- lowing up the Roper Creek for about six miles, we found another stray horse, which we likewise caught and rode, driving our own before us. We continued on the creek for another six miles farther, and then, as it had become very warm halted under a shady tree beside a pool of water, intending to dine off the kangaroo which we had shot two days before. After unsaddling I told Hicks to make a fire, but, to my dismay, found that the few matches we had left were all spoilt. Our ammunition consisted only of three cartridges, but I determined at all risk to use them. All our endeavours however to strike...
