ARRIVAL AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

ARRIVAL AT PERTH. The vice-regal party arrived in Perth about three o'clock-half an hour before they were expected. Owing to this contretemps, the pre- parations made for the reception of His Excel- lency were barely completed when the steamer reached the jetty, and, consequent upon some misunderstanding on the part of tile authori- ties, there were but very few persons present to receive His Excellency on his landing. Among those in attendance was Mr. E. A. Stone, one of the city councillors, who, in con- sequence of a domestic affliction in the family of the Acting Chairman, had been deputed by the municipal council to receive His Excel- lency. But, although theïe were not many persons on the jetty and in the streets when the vice-regal party landed, the reception which His Excellency received on his return to our shores was not a whit less hearty and en- thusiastic. The principal thoroughfares of the city were gaily decorated with flags and streamers, representative of the popula...

PUBLICANS AND PAYMENT BY CHEQUES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

PUBLICANS AND PAYMENT EY CHEQUES. One of the cases tried at the criminal ses- sions of the Supreme Court last week was that of two men, Kelly and Bailey, charged with stcaliug and uttering a cheque for £*5 belonging to a blacksmith named Douglas. The cheque was picked up in the street, and presented by the prisoners at the ' Hoiseand Groom ' tavern, Perth, in payment for some beer. After the trial was over, The Acting Attorney General, addressing the Court, said it was his duty as Crown Solicitor to disburse the expenses of wit- nesses, and unless His Honor directed other- wise he should have to disburse the expenses uf Mr. Connor (the landlord of the ' Hoi se and Groom'), who took the cheque in ques- tion from the prisoners. He must ask His Honor for instructions upon that head-he might almost apply to the Court to disallow Mr. Connor's expenses. The Chief Justice : On what ground? The AttorncyGincr.il : On many grounds. I consider that Connor's conduct with re- ference to this che...

THE XÚ %XX5txÚX¡\\\. VlGlLANS EïAllDAS. PERTH, TUESDAY, AP BIL 13, 1880 Arguments are certainly not wanting in proof of the proposition that our present constitution is by no means perfect, any moro than thoy are wanting in support of the claim to greatly superior theoretical ad- vantages which is upheld for the system of their choice, by advocates for the immediate 1ntroduction of Responsible Government. "We cannot quarrel with honest arguments, though we do willi the falsehood and mis- representation, which so frequently is made todo duty instead. And with regard to certain defects of our constitutional machin- ery, all thinking men must to a great extent be agreed, the only difference being, that those who believe an early assumption of full self-governing powers to be premature and imprudent, are naturalty inclined to make the best of these defects, while those who do not hesitate to urge the immediate introduction of constitutional change, are as naturally inclined to make the ...

Country Letters. From our own Correspondents. TOODYAY, March 30. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

Country Letters. From our own Correspondents. TOODYAY, March 30. The restry of St. George's Church met today to settle accounts and appoint officers for the ensuing year. It is to be hoped they will be able to complete the fencing of the church ground ere long, for in its present condition it is a disgrace to any Christian community. March 31. The Oddfellows held their annual festival today. They walked in procession to the Church in the full regalia of the order, headed by the town band, much io the ad- miration of a crowd of children, nurse girls, and even children of older growth. After the dinner, the members of the lodge and invited guests presented an address to Mr. Fairbairn, R.M., who is leaving the district. I am sorry I cannot give you a report of the speeches made on the occasion, as I was not among the invited guests. There was a ball in the evening which Avas well attended and passed off very well.

Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

êtaakml potes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. The Volunteer Horse Artillery, though few in number, are a fine body of men. There are many strapping fellows amongst them, who in their effective uniform of black and gold look remarkably well, and on Slate occasions present a really effective appear- ance-when dismounted. We cannot how- ever avoid expressing sincere regret to think that it should be necessary so sadly to dis- figure thom as they invariably are disfigured when they enehauge terra Jirina for horse- back. Por the credit of'tlu colony, it would really be better not to have any Volunteer Horse Artillery at all, if it is found impos- sible to supply them with rather more re- spectable mounts than those upon which they are usually in the habit of turning out The appearance of some of the horses on Saturday last was simply grotesque, and their conduct in the streets on a par with their appearance. The arrangements for the reception of Governor Robinson in the capital city were eertainly'd...

ARRIVAL AT FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

ARRIVAL AT FREMANTLE. Governor Robinson's reception here was marked by a heartiness that must have been very pleasing to His Excellency. A large con- course of people had assembled upon the jetty and its approaches soon after the s.s. Rob Roy was sighted, and the crowd waited patieutly for His Excelleiicy to land. At about 12 o'clock a salute was filed by the Fremantle Naval Bri- gade, commanded by Lieut. Forsyth ; and the Enrolled Pensioner Force, under the command of Colonel Finnerty, formed the guard of honor for His Excellency upon his landing. The Chairman and Councillors of the Munici- pality escorted His Excellency (Colonel Harvest accompanying Lady Robinson) to the covered platform-decorated for the occasion-at the end   of the jetty, where the Municipality presented His Excellency with an address of welcome. Every flag that could be procured was hoisted in the main streets, and several mottoes, more or less appropriate, were displayed. After the address and the...

OBITUARY. MR. HENRY YELVERTON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

OBITUARY. Mr. Henry Yelverton. Our obituary notice contains the announcement of the death of Mr. Henry Yelverton, sen. of the Vasse, a settler of thirty-five years. The de- ceased may be regarded as the pioneer of the timber trade in this Colony - a man who pro- bably did more and gained less by the trade than any other person who embarked in it, on anything like an extensive scale. Mr. Yelver- ton and Mr. Wellard of the Serpentine arrived together in the colony as late back as 1845, and the former was not long in discovering the value of our tooart and jarrah woods. We believe he first commenced operations at Fremantle, or Stake Hill, near Rockingham, working his way gradually down South to the Vasse, and ulti- mately settling at Quindalup, where for the past twenty years he carried on extensive operations, at times under difficulties that would have dis- heartened a less determined and energetic man. Bunbury, he passed by on his way southward, as Mr. Pearce Clifton was then engage...

A 'SPLENDID OPPORTUNITY' LOST. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 13 April 1880

A 'SPLENDID OPPORTUNITY' LOST.   To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,- An extract from your paper appears in this morning's "Argus," by which it appears that   the colony of Western Australia will not be re- presented at our International Exhibition. If this decision has been arrived at by the Western Australian Government, I can only say that numbers of people in this colony will be disappointed thereat. The progress which your colony has lately been making as com- pared with the lethargic state in which it re- mained some years' back, has drawn the atten- tion of people in this and other Eastern Colo- nies who are looking about for the investment of their capital ; and accounts given by visitors to your colony, on their return here, have excited curiosity in regard to the prospects offered by your colony. Now here is a splendid opportunity for West- ern Australia to show what she has to offer to persons with capital, and I can safely say that the ex...

WHO IS TO BLAME. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

WHO IS TO BLAME. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-Some time since, attention was cr.lled through the columns of your paper to the fact that the Government had invited tenders for the erec- tion of an elaborate police station at or near Mount Wittenoom, condemning the project as a waste of public money, not warranted by the requirements of the district, and evidently projected by the heads of departments, who knew little or nothing about what they had taken in hand to do. No notice was taken of the remonstrances, nor was any fresh enquiry made. Heads of Departments do not in these enlightened days descend from their pedesdal of red tape and wax and take council with ordi nary mortals possessing a fair share of common and practical sense. If they did, what would become of their dignity ? And what would the world say if the acknowledgment were made on their part that other men, mere squatters and farmers, might know as much about the requirements of the district they lived in...
