EASTER CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

EASTER CUSTOMS. Like Christmas, Easter sheds its light both backwai'ds and forwards. As the festivities of the one season are begnn long before the day itself arrives and are continued afterwards, so do the solemnities of the other, though these solemnities are very dissimilar in character. Owing perhaps to the widely diverse nature of the events commemorated the customs appro- priate to the season are as opposite to each other as can well be imagined. In some of them the tone is one of deepest reverence and most ten- der pathos, and in others of the most exuberant mirth. No other season takes us so completely and rapidly " from grave to gay, from lively to severe/' Most of them have a connection more or less direct with the Christian narrative, though in some cases there is strong suspicion of a pagan element, and the character of many has entirely changed since their introduction. ' One of the most interesting of these changed customs, and at the same time one of the most pleasing...

THE IRISH FAMINE RELIEF FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 March 1880

THE IRISH FAMINE RELIEF FUJST). "WHEK we first started tha idea that tbis'CO; lony should take part in the movement which had proved so successful, and had been taken up so warmly in all our eastern neighbour States, it was with some diffidence that we did so. As far as we could guage the dis- position of the public, that disposition did not seem distinctly favourable to the object we had in view. Times were supposed to bad, and things in general to be depressed. The attitude of the Home Rule party also, here as elsewhere, had caused much aliena- tion of feeling, and the violence of Irish po- litical faction, together with the fictitious character of some of the representations made by interested parties with regard to distress where there was known to be none ef any serious nature, rendered men slow to believe in and acknowledge distress that was real. Our misgivings were entirely uncalled for, West Australia has responded nobly to jthe call ! We may probably assume that, counting ...

(kittityvutm. PERTH BOAT CLUB AND THE CITY COUNCIL. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.-Last Wednesday week's Inquirer con- tains a report of the meeting of the City Coun- cil whose attention seems to have been princi- pally engaged in animadverting upon the con-, duct of the Perth Boat Club for acting as their ' chairman was pleased to state in an unauthor- ised manner. As this report, if left without explanation might be prejudicial to the inter- ests of the club, and might cause the public to impute blame to its members for what would appear a high handed proceeding, I should feel obliged if you would publish in your paper the enclosed letter which I have addressed to Mr. Barnard Smith, who was acting chairman at the meeting alluded to, and which I hope will prove that the Boat Club was not deserving of the imputations cast upon it.

PRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS AND PURSE OF SOVEREIGNS TO THE REV. JOS. WITHERS. BUNBURY, March 23rd. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 April 1880

PRESENTATION OF AN ADDRESS AND PURSE OF SOVEREIGNS TO THE REV. JOS. WITHERS. BUNBURY, March 23rd. A public meeting was held in the Mechanic's Institute last Monday evening, for the purpose of presenting an address and purse to the Rev. Jos. Withers. Mr. Hayward, who was voted to the chair, said that it afforded him great pleasure to pre- side on that occasion. Mr. Withers was a gentleman whom he had always respected, and looking at the large amount of lasting good that he had done in the district, he had no doubt that all regretted his leaving. The ob- ject of the meeting was to present Mr. Withers with an address and purse as some slight recognition of his long services. He would ask Mr. Venn to make the presentation. Mr, Venn said he thought it would have been better hod this honor been conferred upon some one who had been a longer resident in the district and longer acquainted with Mr. Withers and who knew more of his sterling qualities. He had only been in the district a little ...

IMMIGRATION. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN, [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 April 1880

IMMIGRATION. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN, SIR,-I noticed some little time ago the an oucement made in your paper that the Govern- ment had abandoned all idea of introducing Coolie labour in accordance with resolution of the Legislature, and this, because the demand did not come up to expectation. I should like to know in what manner the Government have arrived at the conclusion that there is no demand for the kind of labour which the resolu- tion of the Council authorized them to procure. That there were only a few applications is the reason given. Now Iquite agree with you in think- ing that the number of applications cannot be taken, as any criterion of the demand. Why on earth should it have been thought necessary to go through such a roundabout process on this occasion, when it was quite unnecessary on the last. Were any Coolies left on the hands of the Government after the last importation 2 If there were it is the first time I have heard of it. People won't send in ap...

The Private Secretary to his Excellency the Governor has asked ns to state that His Excel- lency leaves Perth on the afternoon of Monday next, and will be glad to receive such of his friends as would like to take leave of him at 2 p.m., on that day. Mr. E. W. Pitts, of the Levels Dry Creek, Adelaide, sends the following : " I did fairly at the Sydney Exhibition with wool, 6 rams fleeces, special prize, averaged 25 lbs. 2 oz., one going as high as 32 lb., 374 days growth ; 6 Ewes fleeces, 2nd. prize, 14 lbs. 5s ozs., each, 370 days growth ; 6 young ewes fleeces 134 lbs. per fleece, 1st. prize, and at the Adelaide show held last month I took all the first prizes for merino wool."

(ßjnnttrjr %dtm. Co v^. From our own correspondents.) BREAK UP OF THE P. & O. COMPANY'S ESTABLISHMENT. ALBANY, March 25. A public meeting was held in the Court House on the evening of the 16th inst., convened ry the chairman of the Municipal Council for the purpose of reporting progress and of consider- ing the best mode for still further supplement- ing the Irish Famine Relief Fund. The meet- ing was well attended and the platform was graced by some of the fair sex. The Govern- ment Resident moved that Mr. R. Muir take the chair. In a few words the chairman stated the ob- ject of the meeting, and declared the amount already received to be J>64 11s. With few ex- ceptions all who were appealed to cheerfully subscribed their mite ; in one case a poor man named Hayes said he had no money to spare but would willingly give a sucking pig, value 10s. This Mr. Muir accepted and at once opened a raffle list for an unlimited number of members at one shilling each, the upshot was th...

The Nobelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 April 1880

Wítf göÄt. MISS HOVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] Mr. Glover had the eloquence which ac- companies perfect sincerity ; and at this con- juncture he surpassed himself. Having shown his penitent the vanity of the world, the nothingness of its grandeurs and pleas- ures, he proceeded to suggest that the void and melancholy from which she was suffer- ing was a heavenly warning sent to reclaim her heart, and to fill it with better things. He explained the mysteries of that grace which conquers lost souls, and the peace and delight with which it lilla them. Lady Rovel iras aroused, and her heart was stirred by his- ardent representations, by the power and glow of his enthusiasm. He felt that she was nearly won, that the sword of truth had reached the quick, and he redoubled his ef- forts to strike deeper home. He was too in ëenious to see clearly what was passing in cr heart, a heart which although to a great extent impressed by. his eloquence, was yet perhaps in a greater degree move...

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 April 1880

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. No. I. The first feature that strikes a stranger on visiting the Eastern Districts, is the enormous amount of timber covering the land from valley bottom to hill top in every direction. Mile af- ter mile, league after league, still the same, either eucalyptus or acacia, or, as they are lo- cally styled ' gum forest, and jam country,' sometimes the one sometimes the other pre- dominates, and sometimes both occur together, till one is lost in amazement at the hardihood of the settler in setting to work to make a home in such a grassless forest. I am told that when the Avon Valley was first settled, the country was very much more open and grassy than it now is-what a pity it was not kept so. The dreariness of travelling through this country can be thoroughly ap- preciated when (as you occasionally do) you climb the crest of a hill in spring time and see before you a field of rich waving corn, its brilliant green contrasting so deli ciously with the surrounding la...

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. LONDON, April 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 April 1880

LAST NIGHT'S TELEGRAMS. LONDON, April 2. The result of the English elections, so far as has been ascertained, has caused the most pro- found surprise in England and on the Contin- ent. It is noAv evident that the majority Avhich will be ultimately secured by the Liberals Avili bo very large. They have premised to attempt to effect au agreement between England and the other European poAvcrs, for the imrposo of bringing coercion to bear upon Turkey iu order to secure the carrying out of reforms, both in European and Asiatic Turkey. (Later.) The Conservative majority is already de- stroyed. It is estimated that the ultimate result of the elections will give a majority to the Liberals (in- clusive of Radicals and Home Rulers) of over 40 It is understood that either the Marquis of Hartington or Earl Granville will be the UCAV Premier, and that Mr. Gladstone will accept office under either. In the city of London, the voting for the Conservative candidates Avas much larger than on any prev...
