CHORAL SOCIETY'S CONCERT AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 December 1867

OHORAL SOCIETY'S CONERT - AT PERTH. On Tuesday evening hext, the above Society, assisted by the Philharmonic Band, purpose giving in the Hall of the Mechanics' Institute, a choice selection of vocal and instrumental music. Possessing, as it does among its members, ladies and gentlemen of great musical talent, we have no doubt the performance will be of a rechercM description. We have not seen the programme, so can say nothing of the character of the pieces to be performed, but they have doubtless been selected with care and taste. Amusements are as rare in our quiet little community, that we hail with peculiar satisfaction the an- nouncement of this promised concert, the most innocent, the most, refined and the most pleasing of all public amuse-. ments, and to which even the, most fas tidious cannot raise an objection,. We heartily wish the Society a crowded Hall, and if we can afford' the price, of a ticket, shall most certainly attend in the capacity of our own OCritic.

Public Opinion. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 December 1867

gu$hil @prinion. For the statements and opinions of our Corres pondents, toe do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Can you inform me why the expected English Mail is so late in arriving at head quarters? Report says that the roads from Albany to Perth are in a most infamous state. If this be the cause of delay, would it not, have been much more creditable to the Governor if he had taken ~the'great number of men from the Town Hall, and placed them upon thatroad ? The thing speaks for itself. The Governor, knowing his reign is fast approaching an end, is anxious that his name should survive when he is absent from this colony, and his mortal career is closed." Your insertion of these few lines will oblige A SUBSCRIIBER, 11th Dec., 1867. [We have been requested to insert the foL lowing letter, a copy of one forwarded by the P'remantle Committee for the children's Pic. nic to W. H. Knight Esq,, Chairman of the Perth Committee.

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. AT THE BALL. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 December 1867

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. AT THE BALL. ( Continued from our last.) It was a very snug room. There was a table in the middle covered with glasses and bottles and decanters, and three or four gentlemen sittin' round and lookin' as happy as little boys at a Chris'mas party. As we went in they was just in the act of expressin' their mirth each in his own way. Some growlin'-Ha!jha! ha! some Oh! oh ! oh! others squallin' Hi ! hi ! hi ! and others squeakin', He ! he ! he! Jolly party thinks I, and 1 begins refiec tin' on the queer kind of thing human nature is, a bundle of contradictions and absurdities. Government House aint wholly consecrated to the dull Gods-the merry ones has a nook to themselves-and this must be their favorite haunt. I was dis turbed in this train of thought by the Gentleman as led me to the room singin' out, "Slap bang here we are again," when the whole company jumped up and hol lered out, Hooray !three times-and sat down shoutin' "for jolly dogs are we."

REVIEW. W. A. Church of England Magazine. FOR DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 14 December 1867

REVIEW. VP. 'A. G/urch of .England .agazine. FoR DECEMBER. A very excellent number-full of interesting original articles on matters connected with the Colony. Some observations upon the Perth Church Sunday Schools deserve the perusal of those engaged in Sabbath school work in other parts of the Colony. The success of Sunday Schools depends so much on a good system of manage ment, that any advice given by those, whose knowledge is the result of experience, is enti tled to the careful consideration of all interes ted in such Institutions. The article points out clearly and honestly the difficulties that lie in the way of successful Sabbath School teach ing, and kindly, but firmly, urges upon the no tice of teachers that, to effect the objects aimed at, they must undertake the labor " heartily and from alove of it " and must practice " pa tience and forbearance." The aim of a Sun day School-the writer truly observes-" is to get children to take a pleasure in religious pur suits and to ...

Tas Selection of members for the new Council has been brought to a. conclusion in all except the eastern districts. The choice of the selectors has fallen upon Candidates, who have adopted for their platform the concession of the Re presentative principle. In the York district the preliminary meeting was but thinly attended, and the feeling .is representedi to us by a most* influential conservative, "as that of men about to suffer execution"--so unwilling were the settlers to take action under the permissive concession of Gover nor Hampton. The New Candidate, Mr. Hamersly, grounds his claims upon the same prin ciples as those of the old Candidate from Newcastle, Mr. Phillips, Mr. W. L. Brockman stood upon the principle of Representation for the Swan, and as a cousequence received the Honor to which he his so justly entitled, Many who have voted by the permis sive courtesy of Governor Hampton, have expressed their approbation of the course pursued by the Northern settlers, as the mos...

FEARFUL CYCLONE AND LOSS OF LIFE AT CALCUTTA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 21 December 1867

FEARFUL CYCLONE AND LOSS OF LIFE AT CALCUTTA. On Friday, the 1st of November, the mouths of the Ganges and Hoogly, Calcutta, and the surrounding country were visited by a cyclone scarcely less severe than the terrible one of 1864. So far as has yet been ascertained, this cyclone is believed to have travelled faster than that of 1864 ; to have arisen at the head of the Bay of Bengal, speeding away across the Sun derbunds to Port Canning, whence it deflected north, and, after travelling about a hundred miles in that direction, to have deflected to the eastward in the direction of Chittagong. Port Canning, Howrah, the 24-Pergunnahs, Nud dea, Jessore, Furreedpore, Dacca,- are known to have suffered very severely, but the exact extent of the damage in: the districts has not yet been ascertained. About three-fourths of the rice crop throughout the 24-Pergunnahs- and a fine crop it was, nearly ready for 'the reaper-has been destroyed, and ten per cent of the cattle in Nuddea killed or drow...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 21 December 1867

COMMERCIAL. From the Mauritius we learn that flour and wheat were nmuch depressed owing to the heavy stocks on hand. One parcel-of 1,900 bags of fine Tasmanian wheat failed to find purchasers tho' offered at a very reduced rate. The fever had shewn itself again and caused much anxiety. At Singapore the price of Sandal wood had fallen and sales were effected with much diffi culty owing to the want of shipping for China Ports. Flour also had declined, and the demand for horses had entirely ceased. At Madras, a fair demand for horses of a suitable stamp, existed and at Calcutta, really good animals were in considerable request The Cyclone had done fearful damage through out Lower Bengal and much distress was azi ticipated, owing to the destruction of the crops. The English flour and meat market had reached extreme prices, placing the latter article, at any rate, quite beyond the reach of the poorer laboring classes.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 21 December 1867

VICTORIA. Here again the all engrossing topic is the Prince's visit. Monday the 25th November was the day His Royal Highness landed, amd it was observed as a general holiday. Eleven thouaand children were collected in Collins street to sing the National Anthem-the boys all in straw hats and blue ribbons, and the girls in white dresses and blue ribbons. On His Royal Highness': landing, his path was strewn with flowers by children. Great enthu siasm prevailed, and the Prince was evidently gratified with his reception by this, the Queen of the Australian Colonies. The Ball in honor of the. Prince's visit took place on the night of the 27 November, and was a splendid success. The Hall of the new Exhibition was beauti fully decorated and above 2,500 guests were present. A free banquet was given in honor of His Royal Highness, to which 1,500 pf the inhabitants of Melbourne sat down. The programme is elaborate and will certainly tax the endurance of the Prince. The harvest is doubtful-the ...

INTERCOLONIAL.—ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 21 December 1867

INTERCOLONIAL.-ADELAIDE. The principal news is that connected with the visit of H. R. H. the Duke of Edinburgh. The columns of the papers are full of it. It is the one great event of the month, eclipsing every other subject. As we read over the accounts of the festivities and holiday making we cannot but experience a regret that this colony was not favored with a visit from the Royal Sailor. That no blame is in any way attributable to the young Prince-as some would insinuate-is proved by the fact _of his' having publicly ex pressed his regret at not having had instruc tions to visit Swan River. The Galatea arrived at Glenelg, South Aus tralia early in the morning of the 30th Oct., and was announced by the discharge of.artil lery. The State landing took place the follow ing day, the 31. His Royal Highness landed at 2 p. m., attended by his equerries and was received by the Governor and his suite accom panied by a number of the reception committee, members of the Legislature and other...

NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 21 December 1867

NEW SOUTH WALES. The Ministry, defeated on two important questions, Railways and Land Policy-have refused to resign, and the Assembly has suppor ted this somewhat unconstitutional proceeding by a majority of ten. A precedent has been thus established by which any future ministry will be justified in declining to resign except under a direct vote of want of confidence. The Bill retricting the immigration of Chinese has been repealed. During the last seven years the population of this colony has increased but little by immigration, and it is thought that an influx of labor, even though it be Asiatic, is not to be despised. The Chinese are honest and persevering. The Roman Catholic Arch bishop and clergy are active in their opposition against the Public Schools' Act, the instruction imparted is described as 'poisoned,' and the ill feeling has been increased by a Roman Catho lic School, in receipt ofpublic money, declining the services of two inspectors. The crops have suffered much fro...
