Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

#xaj3ïomtl Jotes. LOCAL AND GBNBRAL. From private sources we learn that Mr Hocking has accepted the Attorney Generalship of Jamaica-salary £1,500 a year-and proceeds there shortly. No communication has been received with reference to the appointment of his successor in Western Australia. With reference to a hope expressed by our Northam correspondent that steps will be taken . to obtain information with regard to the dia- mond drill borings for water, now being made | by South Australia in the neighbourhood of our South Eastern boundary, we are in a position to state that the Government propose to place I themselves in communication with the Lands Office of that colony, for the purpose of obtain- ing full particulars of the result. M r. Wrenfordsley was yesterday sworn in as Chief Justice of Western Australia. We agree with our correspondent ' Amiens ' that to assist some of the starving Irish peasan- try to reach our shores would be a really sensible way of affording them relief ; ...

Celegraphic News. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] LONDON, March 17th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 March 1880

Cílegrapjic Jte. [ASSOCIATED PÄESS.] LONDON, March 17th. The Royal Commission on Colonial Defences has already taken a mass of valuable evidence. The Commission will re-assemble at the end of May. The members are very anxious to ascer- tain the opinions of the colonies, and specially invite them to send witnesses to give evidence. Both at Cronstadt and Nicolaieff, the Russi- ans are making great preparations for the imme- diate despatch of further war vessels to the Pati- ne to protect the Amoor territory. This move- ment is being made owing to the expected war between Russia and China. In consequence of the rejection by the French Senate of the 7th clause of M. Ferry's Educa- tion Bill, restricting the rights of the Jesuits in matters educational, the Ministry propose to enforce against the Jesuits certain obsolete laws, passed long ago for the suppression of the order. His Holiness the Pope has expressed his dis- approval of the language made use of by the Roman Catholic Bishops o...

THE W&tú ¿Utstmlian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX, PERTH, TUE81DAY^MABCH2-i, 1880. THE NOMINATED SEATS IN THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. FOLLOWING somewhat close upon Sir "WIL- LIAM EOBINSON'S arrival, the necessity will probably arise for filling up the nominated seats in the Legislative Council. Were these appointments made with due regard to tho principles which, in our opinion, should control the selection of nominated members and should guide the mutual after-relations between the GOVERNOR and his nominees, thejLwould assume an importance which -'s at present to a great extent wanting. In introducing the nominated element into the Legislature, the intention was that the Go VEHNOR should be enabled to secure a cer- tain amount of cordial support from men who on questions of what might be called wide public interest, shared his own views. Hav- ing one third of the members in supposed accord with his policy, having, in other words, one third of the voting power of the House at his command,...

THE W&tú %xdvtâiffl. ViGiLANS ET AUDAX. j PERTH, FRIDAY, MARCS26, 1880. j THE FUTURE OF TROPICAL AUSr I THALIA. IN the Victorian Review for March is avery interesting article on this subject from the pen of a Queenslander-Mr. CVBL FEIL BEBG. Any well-digisted thoughts and prog nostigations upon the future of our tropical territories cannot fail to be of great and p e culiar interest at the present time, ~when^ Ma. ALEXANDER FOBBEST'S exploration has: made us acquainted with the fact that our own Northern possessions comprise, in all probability, as extensive regions of tropical fertility as those of either South Australia or of Queensland. The present condition of these three Northern portions of Au stralia is, however very distinctly different each from each Our own is a totally unsettled waste, inhab ited solely by wandering native tribes. That of South Australia, on the other hand, J^9t already received that impetus which the dis- covery of gold always gives, and, whileif...

PARNELL, THE IRISH AGITATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

PARNELL, THE IRISH AGITATOR. At the present time the man who is doing most mischief to Ireland and the Irish, is pro- bably Parnell. His name has for some time past been before the public, as a prominent member of that kind of obstructionists who for so long have done their best to alienate men's sympathies from the Irish cause, and it seems far from likely that we shall hear the last of him so long as he has strength left to keep up au agitation, and there is any remenant of an agitation to keep up. Thinking that some better information with regard to the career and personality of this now somewhat discreditably famous man, would be interesting to our readers, we reprint the following from the London Echo. " Mr. Charles Stuart Parnell-although an Irish agitator, and the hope of a very " young Ireland" party, is, curiously enough, not an ' Irishman at all, or one only to a limited ex- tent. He is American by his mother's side» his mother being the daughter of an admiral in tho Unite...

Exploration. GEOLOGICAL REPORT. To Alexander Forrest, Esq., F.R.G.S., Leader N. W. E. Expedition. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

?*$fatiiro. GEOLOGICAL REPORT. To Alexander Forrest, Esq., F.R.G.S., Leader N. W. E. Expedition. SIB, I have the honor to submit the following report on the geological character of the coun- try traversed by the N. W. E. Expedition. Starting from Beagle Bay in Lat. 15 deg. 55 min., 45 sec, on the 22nd April, 1879, and pro- ceeding towards the Fitzroy, the foundation is recent and tertiary, consisting chiefly of allu- vial and estuary deposits of clay, loam, gravel, and mud, with slight undulations. Camp F 63 (Lat. 16 deg. 56 min. 40 sec, near the coast), consists of sand patches with ridges of terti- ary formation and recently-formed flats, covered with mangrove bush. Thence S E., over un- dulating country, with numerous salt marshes, bounded by sandstone and metamorphic sand- stone ridges, extending to camp F 69. (Lat. 17 deg. 31 sec.) Beyond is an open plain of alluvial and estuary deposit, dotted here and there with isolated hills of metamorphic sand- stone, and reaching to camp ...

THE SILVESTERS AT ST GEORGE'S HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

THE SILVESTERS AT ST GEORGE'S HALL. The great reputation which the Silvesters have made for themselves, both in the colonies and elsewhere, had tilled St. George's Hall on Tuesday evening, and everybody caine prepared to be thoroughly amused. After an overture had been given, Professor Alfred Silvester at once began his illusional feats. The first which he exhibited was sending coloured handker- chiefs from a decanter in his hand into one which was placed on a table at a considerable distance. The professor has a very neat w,ay of doing his tricks, and a most pleasing address, which tends much to enlist the audience in his favor. Bis tricks with cards are most surpris- ing. He will allow anybody in the audience to select a card, and will compel silver coins, placed in a vase, to tell him the value of each card chosen. Indeed his reliance on his pow- ers in this direction is such that he will at times affect to make a mistake, in order to con- fute the person upon whom he is practisi...

(ÎQXXttyQÛtm. MB, HOOLEY EXPLAINS. , To THE EDÎTOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-Having sent in my resignation as a member of the Legislative Council, I con- sider it is due to the constituents who BO kindly supported me at the late election that I should give my reasons for adopting such a step. Subsequent to the late election it has been resolved by the executors of the late T. C. Gull to wind up and dispose of the business of Barker & Gull, of which I have the manage- ment, during the present year, in which case my time is so fully occupied that I could not devote so much attention to public matters as this- important district has a right to ex pect'from its representative. I had also as- certained that, in the event of a vacancy, Mr. Steere was willing to place his service at our disposal, and as that gentleman's absence from the Legislative Council would be a natural loss, I decided to resign in his favor, and I think "we may congratulate ourselves upon having secured th...

@L>tltyï%$\u fjtos. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] LONDON, March 20. The s. s Aconcagua takes seventy-four Sisters of Mercy for Australia-some for Sydney, others for Brisbane. General Melikoff, recently appointed chief of the commission for the suppression of Nihilism, and the Czarewitch, are co-operating with the view of bringing about a better state of things in Russia. Many prisoners who had been arrest- ed on suspicion of complicity with Nihilistic movements have been released. The Nihilists disclaim having had anything to do with the at- tempt made on the life of General Melikoff, and state they were only watching his actions. The Czar is apparently yielding somewhat to the demands of the Nihilists, though at the same time maintaning a show of great firmness. In the Grand National Steeplechase, Empress was first; the Liberator second, Downpatrick third. VIENNA.
