Exploration. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: [Continued.] Sept. 12. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 March 1880

ê%$lmti<m. From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: By ALEXANDER FOEREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.1 Sept. lí¿. We all started away from the Depot Camp today, and reached the clay flat pool where we stopped on the 10th. Sept. 13. Getting off early this morning, we steered East North East through fine grassy country for thirty two miles, before sundown. No water to be seen. We hobbled the horses very short, to prevent them from straying, gave a little of the water we carried with us to the weaker ones, and arranged that a regular watch should be kept over them during the night. We all felt very tired, as we were obliged to do a good deal of walking by turns. - Sept. 14. (Sunday.) Starting by sunrise, we went E.N.E. for eight miles, and found some water in a boggy swamp j gave our horses a drink, and continued our journey some fifteen miles farther, when we came to the Overland Telegraph Line ; and, the party having given me three cheers in re- cognition of my sa...

SCENE' IN THE NEW SOUTH WALES ASSEMBLY. The following lively scene took place in the Legislative Assembly, at Sydney, on the evening of the ISth. February, ulto. Mr. Buchanan had moved the adjournment of the House, in order to draw attention to the conduct of the Crown Prosecutor in challenging a certain jury, and the debate leading to the ' scene' is reported fully in the Sydney Morning Herald of the following day, from which we make the following extract : Mr. Badgery complained of the time of the House being taken up on this matter by the hon. member for Mudgee, As the bon. mem- ber was counsel in the case,'he might have tak- en some action other than wasting the time of this House when there was important questions on the paper.

Not long ago we were fascinated by dazz- ling visions of fabulous wealth exhibited'to our longing gaze by the proprietor of a Cali- fornian orangery. 4' Do you wish," said he, 44 to leave £10,000 a year to your children ?'. "We replied that we should not be disinclined to do so, if we could see our way. *4 Nothing is easier !" said our Californian, earnestly ; 441 w ill show you how it is to be done." He then proceeded to inform us, that if we bought a hundred acres of good land, if we irrigated it, if we planted it with a certain kind of orange, at a certain distance apart, if we gave those oranges a certain amount of attention, if those oranges grew as w as expected, if they fruited as they ought, if we waited twenty years, and if we found a market for our produce-we should, from that hundred acres of land, derive an income of £10,000 a year.

[Continued.-] Paratoa station (South Australia), Jan. l8. 1880.-Arrived here yesterday, 188 miles from Adelaide, and 88 miles from the famous Burra Mine. This station belongs to Sir Thomas Elder. It comprises in all three thousand six hundred (3,600) square miles, or about 2,300,000 acres, on which are kept about 250,000 sheep, or about one sheep to every nine acres of land, for which he pays rent at the rate of half a crown per square mile, and 2d, per head assessment on the sheep, annually. At this time there is very little grass anywhere to be seen on the station, the grass-hoppers having eaten up everything, except the salt bush, of which there is any quantity. The sheep that I have seen are of large size, and are in good condition. They possess very pure wool. Last shearing they averaged 61bs. lOoz in the grease. The native dogs are very troublesome ...

Occasiona Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 March 1880

Qctxskm g otes. LOCAL AND GENEMAL. We learn by telegram that the P. & O. steam- ' er Siam arrived at Albany from Galle at 2 a.m., on Wednesday. The passengers for this colony are Mr. and Mrs. T. Burges and family (3), Mr , Chaplin, and Mr. Josephson. From the same ' source we gather that His Honor the Chief ' Justice, Mr. and Mrs. Loftie, and Mr. Joseph son, left for Perth by the overland mail van at 6 o'clock on Wednesday morning. We hear that the Chief Justice remained behind at the -Williams, and that he will be brought on by private conveyance, reaching Perth tomorrow . evening. » a j There is some reason to hope that the mys- tery of poor Leichardt's fate may yet be clear- ed up. Our readers will recollect that some years ago a man called Hume declared that in the far back Queensland country towards the Roper River, he had seen a white man living with the blacks. This man had two half-caste children with whom he talked in a language he (Hume) could not understand, and o...

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) ALBANY, March 10. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 19 March 1880

tontrp Ifátm. (From our own correspondents.), ALBANY, March 10. The barque Garstang sailed on the 2nd met., for Shanghai, with about 300 tons of sandal- wood, freighted by Mr. John F. T. Hassell. In a previous communication I mentioned the extreme heat experienced here this sum- mer, but omitted to say that, although we Al- banians consider it hot, there was only one day when the thermometer reached 100 deg. in the shade. This was on the 6th Feby., and it will ever be remembered in Albany as "Black Monday." The wind was from the land (North), where a bush fire was raging to a terrible ex- tent, the whole sky being darkened by smoke, ending in a thunder storm towards night, when a light rain fell. The next morning it was discovered that the rain which had fallen was blade, from having passed through the smoke. This was a serions matter for those who have to depend on their tanks for good water-which many have to do. Although Albany is well watered, the water is generally dark, and fe...

WHY MR. GALE DID NOT CONTEST THE VASSE ELECTION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

WHY MR. GALE DID NOT CONTEST THE VASSE ELECTION. To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST ATXSTBALIAN. SIE,-Although rather late in the day, yet, in justice to Mr. Gale, allow me to correct an impression that appears to have gone abroad with regard to the treatment by that gentle- man of his supporters at the late election in this district. I wish to give the real facts of the case in as few words as possible. Mr. Gale has been accused of " scant cour- tesy" towards his supporters, in suddenly withdrawing from the election contest at the eleventh hour-an accusation which is quite undeserved by one who is ever courteous and considerate to all. Mr. Gale, after considerable pressure had been put upon him by his friends in the district, reluctantly consented to come forward as a candidate for a seat in the Coun- cil. A committee was appointed and a requi- sition drawn up-and, if there were less than "eighty signatures" attached, it contained those of all the leading and most respectable people of the ...

INTERCOLONIAL RIFLE MATCH. SOUTH AUSTRALIA v. WEST AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

INTERCOLONIAL RIFLE MATCH. SOUTH AUSTRALIA V. WEST AUSTRALIA. The rifle match between the South Aus- tralian National Rifle Association and the Metropolitan Rifle Volunteers, of this city, took place simultaneously at Adelaide and Perth on Saturday afternoon. There were fifteen competitors a side. In consequence of the difference of weapons with which the two teams are respectively armed-the South . Australians having the Martini-Henry,rand our local corps the Snider-the ranges were reduced to short distances, namely 200, 300, and 400 yards. The conditions of the match were ten rounds at each range, standing posi- tion at 200 yards, and *' lying forward" at the 300 and 400 yards, ranges. There-was much speculation among the members of the local team as to the probability and result of the contest. Captain Hillman, we believe, was well satisfied from the previous practice nnd«experience of his men, that if the re- presentatives of this colony did not succeed in actually appropriating...

éoXXtSpUüUL ADVERTISING FOE STRAYED STOCK. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST ATTSTEALIAN. SIB,-Allow me through the medium of your paper to call attention to what appears to be?] an important error in advertising stray stock. As an instance such as I often notice, take the following; A stray horse in a late paper is located near "Juendine." It is most likely that I might travel twenty miles around my home and not be able to learn by enquiry where "Juendine" lies. Upon such an advertisement, I should, as a magistrate, refuse to give an order for the sale of the animal so advertised, knowing that horses and cattle will travel hundreds of miles to return to their old run. In your opinion, should I be justified or not? Yours etc., S. March 6th, 1880 <j]Qui; correspondent is perfectly right as to ad 'vertisements of strayed stock being often very carelessly worded, and not conveying the infor- mation they affect to give in an intelligible way. A description of the place where advertis...

NORTHAM TABLE TALK. "let it serve for table talk. Then, howso'er thou spcaKest, among other things, I shall digest it." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

NORTHAM TABLE TALK. " let it serve for table talk. Then, howso'er thou spcaKest, among other things, I shall digest it." Since my last I have nothing of much local interest to communicate. The weather has been delightfully cool, and there appears every indication of an early winter. We had several pice showers since the great storm, and the country has already in places assumed its win- ter garb of green. . Should we estape further hot weather, and the rain visit us now and then, there would be abundance of feed for early lambing. If, however, on the contrary, the weather should again set in very hot and parch the starting grass, feed it is said will be very scarce throughout the year. We are to have races here early next month. The old Northam turf club is said to be defunct, and next month's meet is the outcome of a new society. I am told that the old club has not yet'paid all its last year's published prizes. -1 think, for the honor of the turf and the dis- trict, it would have b...

THE RIGHT WAY TO HELP THE IRISH [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

THE RIGHT WAY TO HELP THE IRISH Dear Mr, Editor.-A thought suggested itself to my mind, as I was reading certain remarks made' by the American Press with regard to the best way of giving permanent relief to the Irish.. Their idea was, that help should be given them to emigrate. And could not we do something in this line, that would benefit us at the same time that it benetitted them ? The ¿52000 voted last session for the intro- duction of Chinese and nominated labour is likely to rest in the chest, it seems on account of the small response made to the notice in the Government Gazette, asking intending employers to apply. Now we hear that no Coolie labour is to be sent for, and how this present scarcity is to be met I do not know unless the plan I would now suggest is adopted-that we should add the money we collect for the Irish distress to this JË2000, and get out Irishmen instead of Chinese. I remain, dear Sir, Yours etc., AM1CUS. March 19th.

EXPLORATION From the De Grey to Port Darwin. JOURNAL OF EXPLORATION: BY ALEXANDER FORREST, F.R.G.S. [Continued.] October 6th. We reached the township of Southport early today, and delivered over the Government horses and equipment which we had borrowed, to Mr. Machell, of the Telegraph Department. From here we go by steamer to Palmerston. Mr. and Mrs. Machell kindly gave me hospi- tality, and my party were lodged at Ryan's hotel. This Southport is the chief outlet for the gold fields. All the goods used on these fields and at the telegraph stations are brought here by small steamers from Palmerston, and vessels of 200 tons burden can unload at the jetty. The situation is very good, and South- port must in course of time become a place of some importance, but as yet it is only in its infancy. The chief buildings are a telegraph station-a very handsome structure-and a few good stores. The hotels are small, and have very poor accommodation. The Chinamen-of whom there are about 4,000 in...
