The Novelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 April 1880

C #0J MISS MOTEL. lßt<T<a tue French.) [Continued.] Meg's colour was heightened as she talk fed in this passionate strain, her eyes flashed fire, and she lashed the air viciously with a twig which she liad broken off a neighbour- ing bush. She would have given much to have had the face of the man she loved to whip instead-the man she loved, and yet 5was beginning to hate like fury. Suddenly throwing down her slick, she exclaimed, ' For the last time, I love you ; you love me 1 I defy you to forget me-will you have mo ? It you say no, or you hesitate, you will never sec me again, but 1 swear to you by my golden hair, that you shall hear of me ! Now choose ; our fates ave ia youf hands-decide them !'

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. No. 2. In my last I stated that I would attempt to show how legislation might be made to bcuefit the settler in the Eastern Districts. Perhaps I could not commence the subject better than by quoting the main clauses of 10th Viet., No. 15, ("An ordinance to diminish the dangers result- ing from hush fires), which passed the Council on the 2nd Sept., 1847 : (1 ). " Whereas it is expedient so far as may be possible to prevent the evils which result from what are commonly called " bush fires," be it therefore enacted, by His Excellency the Governor of Western Australia and its de- pendencies, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Council thereof, that any person who shall be convicted of either wilfully or through carelessness setting fire to auy grass, stubble,' shrub, or other natural vegeta- tion whatsoever, at any time between the first day of September in auy year, and the first day of April in the year next thereafter following, shall forfeit...

IMPORTED FLOUR v. HOME GROWN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 9 April 1880

LM.ÍORTED FLOUR v. HOME GROWN. To THE EDITOB OP THE WEST AUSTEALIAN. SIE,-Can you explain how it is that such large quantities of Adelaide flour are still im- ported and find buyers in Perth and Fremantle, when in the Eastern Districts wheat of the . very best quality-wheat that would bear fav- ourable comparison with that grown in any part of the world-is now selling, or I should rather say being offered (for there are no pur- chasers) at 4s. a bushel? Flour also, far sweeter and wholesomer than any imported, is I believe selling' there at JfilO a ton. - . There must be something wrong somewhere. Either our millers do not turn out an article as good as the imported, or our bakers do not un- derstand how to work up the home-produced article in order to make it look as weU. Perhaps ., there may be something in the eccentric taste .of,the public, which is so prejudiced in favour rof imported articles no matter of what kind !ñot''even excluding the human mammal-that itinis become quite...

The steamer" Way be exptictëd at Fremantle about noon on Saturday, when His Excellency ?will disembark, and proceei to Perth, where he will be sworn in, some time in the course of the afternoon, in the Town Hall. The English mail steamer conveying Sir Harry Ord, left Albany for Galle yesterday morning, at an early hour. The steel rails for our Fremantle-Guildford Ballway were, it appears, fortunately for us, purchased before the revival of trade, the con- tract prices for their manufacture-according to specification-of Bessemer steel, being, for 802 tons JE5 2s. 6d., and for 799 tons £6 17s. 6d. (the reason for the difference in price is un- known to us), making in the aggregate ¿£9,603 7s. 6d. Had the whole been executed at the lower rate a saving of .£1398 5s. would have been made.

THURSDAY, APIÎIL 8TH. The Court resumed at 11 a.m. SENTENCE OP DEATH. The prisoner Thompson, convicted the pre vious day of an attempt to commit a rape upon I Mrs. Ellis, at Beverley, was placed in the dock. His Honor the Chief Justice, addressing him, said : William Thompson-I told you yesterday a\ that your case was a very serious one. Serious indeed it is, for your life is in question. I took time last night to consider your sentence and I did not do so without considerable pain. I, like yourself, owe a duty to the community, and there must be no escape from the law. Your case is a serious one not only as regards your- self, but as regards the people of this colony. In England, there is a great deal of crime, but much ofthat crime comes from poverty. Poverty brings drink, and drink brings crime. I have seen ' many a fine fellow standing in the dock, in Eng- land, suffering almost as you suffer, and yet he suffered simply from the evils brought on. by poverty. But there is no such...

M$t«f|k Jte. [Associated Press.] London, April Sth. The Queen, who has been on a visit to the Continent, will return to England on April 15. The Liberal majority in the Commons has been considerably stvengthened. Yesterday's elections show sixteen more Liberals to have been returned. Their total gain now amount to 83. Contrary to their expectations, the Conserva- tives have lost several seats in the counties wdiere their opponents had hitherto boen in a minority. Opinion is gaining ground that the ministry will resign before the meeting of Parliament. The Liberals held a demonstration yesterday night, at which the Marquis of Hartington was present. In his speech he alluded to the taunts made against the Liberals, to the effect that that party had been divided on many important questions of public policy. The Marquis said the accusation was not borne out by facts. He declared that at present the Liberals were more united than they had ever been previously. A morning paper publishes a...

Correspondence. "KANGAROO."—In OUR NEXT. "DAVID" AND THE EASTERN DISTRICTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

éoxxtqQÛms. : KaKQAEOO."-In QUE ÏTEXT. "DAVID" AND THE EASTERN DIS- TRICTS. To the Editor of the West Attstealian. Sir,-I cannot refrain from making a few remarks in reference to a letter signed " David" in your last issue. There are few, if any, settlers of experience in the Eastern Districts who have not learnt the absolute necessity of burn* ing their runs every third year to ensure their full carrying capacity remaining available; otherwise they deteriorate until they become comparatively useless. This is already the ease with some of the older runs. So covered are they with fallen timber and young saplings that, what little grass does grow on them, stock will not eat. To burn on or after the first day of April, when a fire can be controlled as the Act directs, has been proved to be almost useless, as it does not then burn fiercely enough either to kill the saplings or to consume the dead and fallen timber ; to attain these objects the burning must be done no later than the mont...

DAVID" REPLIED TO. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sib,-Our friend ' David/ who appears to have been wandering in the wilderness of En- gedi, seems, much exercised in mind with re- gard to the woods and thickets therein. Pro- bably he is a nominee member out of harness, au désespoir at banishment from the nickering light of vice-royal favour, and so takes refugî in the wilderness of the Eastern Districts, and endeavours to gain popularity by stirring up the vexed and vexatious subject of ' the young saplings.' Or perhaps he is a man with a small capital, anxious to invest in a farm at 'little outlay, so wanders about depreciating the country, calling it a ' wood-yard/ and other hard names. However, presuming he is aprae tical man, or even an unpractical one with a good theory, he may suggest some plan that would turn out of use to the poor long-suffering Hill Tribes, troubled with an invasion of jam trees. For j« ears have they been struggling against this enemy, more insiduou...

Miss Mena Shenton said that on the evening in question she slept in her papa's room, under- neath the window of which is a verandah.

She was thou aware there was a light in the room, though she did not dare to open her eves, but pretended to be asleep. Shortly afterwards, she heard the intruder moving to another room, and the moment he went out, she ran into her mamma's room, ami woko her np.
