Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

dteáonal gotes. - e LOCAL ANT) GENERAL. \ A private telegram received yesterday an- nounces the immediate departure of Governor Weld to assume the Administration of tthe Straits Settlements. The attention of our Eastern Districts readers is called to the alteration in the dates of the Silvesters performances. (Vide advertisement.) There is a notification in the Government , Gazette of Tuesday, the 23rd inst., with regard to the cancelling of Mr. Mackenzie Grant's ap- pointment as a Justice of the Peace, which un- less explained, might very likely lead to mis- conception. By some mistake-upon the de- tails of which it is unnecessary to enter-Mr. McKenzie Grant was gazetted a justice of the peace without his sanction having been previ- ously obtained. Wheu communicated with on the subject, he informed the Colonial Secretary that, while appreciating the honor intended, he should prefer not to accept the position which it was proposed to confer upou Lim. Mr. Hooley, who was returned as ...

The Hobelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

%\t gJMut. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) \Continued.~] This letter and the signature appended to it had the same effect upon Raymond as a red ra^ has upon a bull. He stood still, stupefied with astonishmsnt and fury. A mist was before his eyes, and it was only by a decided effort that he could recollect .where he was, what was the matter, and ?what he was doing in the middle of the road with a bit of paper in his hand. At last he picked up the thread of his ideas, and ad- mitted again as an ascertained fact that he ?was really Raymond Ferray, that his ward had really eloped, and that he was losing precious time, seeing that an j'ffair of urgent importance awaited him. which was that he should follow up Mr. Gordon to Thonon, and inform him as politely as the circumstances Îermitted of his intention to cut his throat. le noticed ajso that close beside him was a carriage-to Chicha couple oE horses were harnessed, and a coachman who was looking at him {suspiciously, in apparent doubt a...

OUR LADIES' LETTER FROM LONDON. Feb. 2,1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

OUR LADIES' LETTER FROM LONDON. Feb. 2,1880. DEAR SIR,-Perhaps it will be interesting to your readers to learn something of what is go- ing on in the way of " Woman's Work" in Eng- land. I look at the now far distant days of my own childhood and at the kind of education we then received, and contrast it with that which my grandchildren are receiving. We were taught to say our chapters out of the Bible and our catechism, to behave respectfully to our elders, to learn a good deal by rote, to read distinctly, to write legibly, to work neatly, to play and sing so as to please our parents, and to read, write, and converse in two or three mod- ern languages. Then we were considered " fin- ished." Meanwhile we had. leisure to play games, to dress and play with our dolls, of which we were not ashamed. But now Tout cela est cliangé. Few children care for toys now, when they once leave the nursery for the schoolroom which now takes place at about four years of age. The poor children begin the...

Country Letters. Front our own correspondents.) GREENOUGH, March 19. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 26 March 1880

Country Letters. Fronm our own correspondents.) GREENOUGH, March 19. The concert given by the Northampton band at the Greenough Hotel was a grand financial success, adding about forty pounds to the Irish Relief Fund. It would be invidu- ous to mention particular names, where every one did so well. The death of Mr. Pearson and the letter of Father Lacaille to a certain extent damped the proceedings ; but, taking it altogether, the concert proved a most un- qualified success. The remains of the late Mr. Pearson vere brought out from Geraldton on Wednesday last, and interred on Thursday, being followed to their last resting place by the largest num- ber of settlers ever collected at one time in the Greenough. On Monday the Northampton Band left the Greenough for Geraldton, where they re- peated their concert in aid of the Irish Relief Fund, I only hope that they will have met with as good a reception there as here. We had a very heavy thunderstorm last week, and in many places the fiel...

RAILWAY INSPECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

RAILWAY INSPECTION. On Thursday last Mr. Robb, the contrac- tor for the first portion of the Eastern Rail- way, submitted the.bridge across the mouth ( of the Swan, now approaching completion, to the inspection of the Governor and the Executive Council. He subsequently en- tertained those officials, together with some forty more, at Caîsar's hotel. The " Lady Stirling "' was placed at the disposal of the metropolitan contingent, and she started ¿rom the Perth jetty at about half past ten, refreshments being provided on board. Just opposite a cottage some 400 yards above Go- vernor Hampton's bridge, the bed of the engine gave way, and some of the voyagers availed themselves of one of the whale-boats, which happened to be within hail, to get to shore as soon as possible, and were landed by the quarry. The less timorous stuck to the vessel, and steamed slowly on. The bridge having been duly inspected, and ap- proved of, au adjournment was made to the real scene of action, where the mai...

Exploration. EXPLORING ADVENTURES IN BRITISH HONDURAS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

EXPLORING ADVENTURES IN BRITISH HONDURAS. In one of the Graphics which cameby the last mail is a picture containing portraits of Mr. Henry Fowler, Colonial Secretary of British Honduras, of Messrs. Drake and Worth, and of their Indian attendants, members of an explor- ing expedition undertaken last year in the hope of finding minerals, more especially gold, rum- ours of the presence of which in the colony have for long been rife. Bythesamemailcopies of Mr. Fowler's narrative of his journey were also sent to some of his friends by Leiutenant Governor Barlee, under whose auspices the work was un- dertaken, a work which cannot fail to be of some interest to West Australians, on account of the part which an old and valued friend of West Australia has taken in promoting it. The settlements of British Honduras have been in the possession of the British people since 1670, and in 1765 the King gave a ' Con- stitution' to the people founded on their anci- ent customs, viz: ' Legislation by p...

Telegraphic News [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] LONDON, March 24. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

®*%IT$|ÍC §ta. [ASSOCIATED PRESS.] LOÏÎDOÎÎ, March 24. The issue of the new Queensland 4 per cent, loan has been delayed for technical reasons. It is expected that the call for tenders will be advertised immediately, and the probable minimum fixed at £89. Great annoyance is felt at the action of the Victorian Commissioners of the Mel- bourne Exhibition in regard to the British Court. A further grant would have been demanded from the Government, but now that the Budget Speech is delivered there is no prospect of this, or of the Royal Commis- sioner sending out any leading personage to represent Great Brirain at the Exhibition. The wdiole of the tribes Notthof Hindoo Kusli are aiding British forces. Abdur All- man is reported to be advancing westward towards Herat, to seek the alliance of Ayoub Khan. The British intend sending reinforcements to Gandamuk from Jallallabad, fearing an attack from the forces under Acmatnlla. General Stewart is advancing from Khan dahar towards Ghuzni, wit...

THE VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, TUESDAY, MARCH SO, 18S0. A BRIGHT PROSPECT. WEARIED of constant streamsAbf'^factious virulence, of soured ascerbity, petty cavil- ling, and of the general unprofitableness of much of that West Australian press-writing which calls itself political, we turn for a moment with a sense of relief, which we doubt not will be shared by our .readers to glance at a brilliant success, which it would be no exaggeration to say, has electrified Australia-the success we mean of the Strathleven experiment, which promises to have an influence upon the future of this continent, upon the future also of Western Australia, sufficiently important to cause the question at issue between opponents, and advocates of constitutional change, to assume by contrast the aspect merely of a ?petty detail. For an experiment which, as-there is every reason to believe, has opened to Australia-if only she have energy and en- terprise to follow it up-the meat market of the world, is better, ...

MR. HOOLEY'S RESIGNATION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

MR. HOOLEY'S RESIGNATION. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-A paragraph which appeared in your issue of yesterday giving what you consider- ed my reasons for resigning my seat in the Legislative Council is, without some further explanation, likely to mislead the public, who would infer that I resigned the seat upon £ petition being filed against my return, This is not the case, for I informed Sir Luke Leake a fortnight prior to the date of my re- signation that, if my constituents would per- mit, I would resign, and make an opening for Mr. Steere. And although rumora have been afloat to the effect that the qualification of several of the elected members would be questioned, I was not aware that a petition had been filed in my case until my return from Newcastle on Wednesday evening last, whereas my resignation was written on Mon- day previously. Your statement as to my being in treaty for a property is quite correct, also as to the legal advice ; but you did not Btate-and I...

MR. ROBB'S HOSPITALITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

MR. ROBB'S HOSPITALITIES. WE are sorry that circumstances prevented us from giving a fuller report of the luncheon at which Mr. ROBB entertained His Excel ency the Governor, the Executive and Legislative Councils, and the leading gentle- men of Perth and Fremantle on Thursday last. The speeches, though of no political interest, were many of them sufficiently good to well merit reproduction, notably the neat and effective speech of His Honour the CHIEF JUSTICE-a speech at once creating an impression in his favour which we trust and doubt not his future career will em- phasize. The work done on'the Fremantle Bridge is of a character which makes us feel how fortunate the colony has been in securing the services of Mr. ROBB for carrying out the first portion of the Eastern Districts line, and gives us a strong inducement to echo the hope expressed by the SUEVEYOE GENEBAL that |the further extension of the railway may also be entrusted to his able management. Satisfactory also it was to ...

% gÄt. MISS MOVEZ. (From the French.) {Continued.} . The Marquis proving inexorable, Lady "Roveh turned to Raymond and exclaimed : .' Sir ! you are the evil genius of my house. «on your shoulders rests the responsibility for the Marquis' refusal to carry out his .engagement-if you have any heart, any sense, of honour, yon will fight a duel with him upon the spOu and compel him to marry Meg.!' ' I vshall do nothing of the, Jcind,'_said Raymond ; * I consent only to find your «daughter. If I bring her back to you the Marquis may marry her or not, as he likes, -so far as I am concerned. One thing is cer- tain that from the time I deliver her up to you every thought of her will he clean wiped ¡out of my minti, and whoever attempts to revive the recollection, will suffer for it.' Thereupon he rushed to his carriage, Î'umped in, ordered the coachman to drive ike the wind, and was off again in pursuit of Mr. Gordon without troubling himself to see whether Lady Rovel was following him or no...

To THR EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAS. SIR.-Would you kindly re-publish this circular, as it may animate settlers, es- pecially ladies in different places, to collect plants for me, which all will tend to render your resources better known. I am particu- larly anxious toj get} alg« from any part of your coast, but particularly the shores of the northern districts, which have never yet been searched. Fungi of West Australia are also as yet but very scantily collected. The fleshy kind will dry well when sprinkled with kero- sene. Yours truly, FERD V. MULLER. Melbourne, Feb. 28,1880. For the completion of an universal work on Australian indigenous plants, it is desirable to obtain additional collections of plants in a press- ed and dried Btate, particularly from districts far inland or recently settled. It is an impor- tant aim by these means to trace out the exact geographic limits of the many thousand epecies which constitute the original vegetation of Aus- tralia, in order also...

AN APPEAL FROM BARON FERD. V. MULLER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

AN APPEAL FROM BARON FERD. V. MULLER. Some little time ago we published a circu- lar from Baron F«rd. V. Muller, in which he expressed a hope that persons in Western Australia who had leisure to do so would help hin» in his scientific researches. The Baron indicated the manner in which this could be done. The help which he requires would not involve any large amount of exer- tion, and would we imagine be an occupation which might prove :°of great interest, more particularly tojladies living in the country. We now. publish another letter and a further appeal from the Baron for assistanse in his work, which we trust may meet with a ready response.

THE UNION BANK OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

THE UNIOSBANKOF AUSTRALIA. We have pleasure in giving our readers j the opportunity of perusing the following article from the Australasian Insurance and Banlcing Record, having reference princi- pally, to the proposed change in the consti- tution of the Union Bank of Australia. The matter is so lucidly dealt with that comment from us appears unnecessary : In our December issue was placed before our readers some explanation of the Banking Com- panies Act, which became law in the last session of the British Parliament. The text of the measure was almost supplied, and we antici- pated that its provisions would probably be availed of to a considerable extent. This is already in course of verification. The London and Westminster, which must be ranked as the leading English joint-stock bank, has determi- ned to come under its provisions, and other im- portant banking institutions are following in its wake. We may here repeat that registration under the new Act is a matter optional with e...

Occasional Notes LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

#mmonat fjtotcs. LOCAL AND GENERAL. Referring to the fact of the Otway's intended return to Fremantle from Albany, and the eon sequent non-despatch of the colonial mail which she would otherwise have carried, the Inquirer suggests, in a column headed ' Cosmopolite,* that the convenience of the public has been sacrificed in order that the Governor may tra- vel to King George's Sound by the larger steamer, instead of by the less comfortable Rob Roy. Mr. Lilly, of the firm Messrs. Jas. Lilly & Co., has with regard to this matter sent us the following information : " We were in tele- graphic communication with our people in Mel- bourne respecting the Rob Roy, and, on the 11th, they telegraphed that it would be uncer- tain whether she could be got away for a day or two after the appointed time. We immedi- ately communicated with the Postmaster and Governor thus : ' We have the honor to- inform you that in consequence of an unexpected al- teration in the time for the Rob Roy's lea...
