t*%i;¡if Mc |te. [ASSOCIATED PKESS.] MELUOUKUE, April 2. The revenue returns for the Mar. h quarter show "610,000 more than in th3 corresponding quarter of last year. A company, with a capital of ¿8100,000 is forming to export meat to England. LONDON. The wheat crops iu California and all al.-»n<: the Pacific coast aro very heavy. The high pi-ices realized by the meat sent home in the Strathleven have excited the emu- lation of the Americans, who are having steamers built and fitted with the same appara- tus as that used on board the Strathleven, their object being to pour supplies of fresh meat into the English market. The Great Eastern is being fitted np for the conveyance of live cattle from America for sale in England.

The distress of the Irish was a sad and acknowledged reality, and he was delighted that an Irishman had come forward to tell them alx>nl its land and people. AVith out further preface, he would now ask Mr. Laurence to address the meeting. The Eev. gentleman on rising- was very hear- tily received, being greeted by cheer after cheer.

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 April 1880

(Di tasto nal Boies. LOCAL AND GENERAL. A further sum of JC400 will be sent by telegram to-day to the Lord Mayor of Dublin. Nine bun- j dred pounds have now been forwarded, and j counting the Albany collections, and other con- tributions not yet to hand, it seems certain that the thousand pounds to which we prophesied | that the Relief Fund would eventually amount, will be considerably exceeded. Some injustice has been done by more than one of our local contemporaries to the depart- ments in which the financial returns ave pre- pared. A veiy slight effort of memory, on the part of persons moderately well informed with regard to the business arrangements of the colony, would enable them to recollect that we have transactions with the Crown Agents, and" that before the quarterly abstracts can be made out, the Crown Agent's accounts must first be received. It is not therefore in the least sur- prising that the abstract for the quarter ending 31st. December should not be brought out uut...

GOING FROM HOME FOR NEWS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 6 April 1880

GOING FROM HOME FOR NEWS. To THE EDITOH OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIE,-The following extracts from the South Australian Register of March 12th exemplify the old saying that we have to go from home for news. The extracts are from a letter of the Register's Perth correspondent, dated 27th Feb. : " Visitors from the other colonies have often expressed surprise at our unoccupied suburbs. The initiative has at last been instituted by a resident of Perth, who has opened up and taste- fully laid out a block of land at Point Belcher, thereby establishing extensive tea gardens and grounds for recreation. The proprietor has es- tablished communication with the city by means of a steamer, which conveys passengers to and fro in the evenings. Thus far we are making some steps in social progress." I will make no comment on this paragraph ; it speaks for itself and indeed for the others   too. "A number of gentlemen aro here from the   neighbouring colonies awaiting particu...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 9, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 April 1880

THE Mtü Rastrallan. "ViGiLANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FELD AY, APlilL 9, 1880. TUE main cause of the fall in the revenue last year was, we find, the stoppage of receipts from royaltios on guano. When the Esti- mates were prepared, the Government were under the impression that very large depos- its were still available, and accordingly placed £15,000 upon the Estimates of revenue for the year, as derivable from that source, only £2000 of which amount was actually receiv- ed. Other sources of revenue appear to have answered well what was expected of them, and, in some instances, to have considerably exceeded the sum which it was calculated they would bring in. The expenditure for all the ordinary ser- vices of the Civil Establishmeutappears also, so far as our present information enables us to judge, to have been kept well within the estimated limits. The overdraft was due principally to a rather large excess of expen- diture on works and railways-whether just fiablo or not, can only, of cou...
