Chit=Chat. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
Chit Chat Jt may not be inopportune at the present time to direct the attention of municipal coun- cils to the following provision of the 127th sec- tion of the Municipalities Act, relating to the publication of their annual financial state- ments : " These several statements shall be ' audited by the auditors, and, if found correct, " Bhall be certified as correct under the hand of " the auditors, and when so certified shall be * .published in the ' Government Gazette/ and "in at least on» newspaper circulating in the co " lony." The words printed in italics appear to have been overlooked by some municipalities. A lad named Lea, the son of the caretaker of the Working Men's Association in Goderich St. met with a severe accident on Tuesday last. One of his brothers was cutting up firewood at the rear of the building, when a piece of a split log struck the injured hid in the temple, inflict- ing a fearful gash and almost depriving the poor boy of the sight of one eye. It is not often...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, NOV. 28, 1879 RETURN OF THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
THE WEST AUSTRALIAN VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, NOV. 28 1879 RETURN OF THE EXPLORING EXPEDITION &nbsp; &nbsp; WE are glad to find that although thE late melancholy event which has takerin place amongst us precluded all idea of festivities of the ordinary kind, still the return of Mr. ALEXANDER FORREST and his exploring party has not been left wholly unmarked by some &nbsp; recognition. The keen edge of novelty has &nbsp; been worn off ; WARBURTON, the FORRESTS- GILES, hare accustomed us of late years to take bold feats of exploration successfully carried out as a mere matter of course-to consider it quite in the order of natural events that men should take their lives in their hands and start off to march a thousand miles through unknown country, into un- known dangers, where fearless courage, grim endurance, and ceaseless watchful fore- sight, are their only safeguard from a miser- able fate. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; But the...
THE LATE SIR ARCHIBALD PAULL BURT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
THE LATE SIR ARCHIBALD PAULL BURT. THE general and sincere expression of sor- row and regret at the death of the late CHIEF JUSTICE, and the knowledge of the high re- gard in which he was held, and the confi- dence felt in him throughout the colony, must be most gratifying to those whom he has left behind to mourn him. But not only in West- ern Australia will his loss be felt. In his native island of St. Christopher, his name, once a ' household Word,' is still a living memory. Only five years ago, when he re- visited his former home-the scene of that constant and successful publie work to which his early manhood, his middle age,' the best energies of his life were given-the warm and hearty welcome which was, tendered to him by all classes of his West Indian fellow countrymen, showed that years of absence and duty, in a far off land, had not lessened the warmth of their regard, or the sincerity of their gratitude for his unceasing efforts in former years to promote their interests a...

Ladies Column. THE ORIGIN OF THE MOSS ROSE, [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
Ladies' Column. THE ORIGIN OF THE MOSS ROSE, The angel of the flowers one day Beneath a rose-tree sleeping lay; &nbsp; That spirit, to those charge is given : &nbsp; To bathe young buds in dews from heaven. Awaking from his light repose, The angel whispered to the Rose, " O fondest object of my care ! Still fairest found where all are fair, For the sweet shade thou'st given to me Ask what thou wilt, 'tis granted thee." " Then," said the Rose, with deepened glow. " On me another grace bestow." The spirit paused in silent thought ; What grace was there that flower had not? 'Twas but a moment; o'er the Rose A veil of moss the angel throws, And, robed in nature's simplest weed, &nbsp; Could there a flower that Rose exceed ?
RETURN OF MR. ALEXANDER FORREST AND HIS PARTY. RECEPTION AT FREMANTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
RETURN OF MR. ALEXANDER FORREST AND HIS PARTY. RECEPTION AT FREMANTLE. Many eager spectators assembled on the jetty on Wednesday afternoon to witness the arrival of the Rob Roy, bringing Mr. Alexander For- rest's exploring party. The steamer was sight- ed between three and four o'clock, and reached the pier about sundown, gaily decked with flags. Upon landing, Mr. Forrest was received by the Chairman and Councillors of the Municipality and a large number of the inhabitants, who greeted the gallant little band with some very hearty demonstrations. They then proceeded along the jetty to the platform, where the fol- lowing address was read by the Chairman (Mr. E. H. Higham) amidst a great deal of enthusi- asm and cheering : To Alexander Forrest Esq., Leader of the Nor' West Exploring Expedition from West to South Australia. SIR,—On behalf of the inhabitants of Fre- mantle, we, the Chairman and members of the Municipal Council, offer you and your brave comrades our hearty congratulation...
Correspondence. REV. MR. PIDCOCK AND SECRET SOCIETIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
Correspondence. REV. MR. PIDCOCK AND SECRET SOCIETIES. &nbsp; TO THE EDlTOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.—I have just seen a paragraph from your Toodyay correspondent referring to me, in your issue of 7th November. Will you al- low me to state that the sermon, to which your correspondent alludes, was not upon the subject of secret societies at all, and I can scarcely believe that he heard it himself. It contained the following sentence :— " Surely we cannot look around, without " deploring the doings of the foreign Free- " masons, Internationalists, Socialists, and " Nihilists, whose wicked designs are already "bearing such pernicious fruit." And this was every word that I said upon the subject of secret societies. I purposely and advisedly used the word foreign, because I believe that English Freemasons differ much from their continental brethren. I am Sir, Your obedient servant, W. H. PIDCOCK. 20th Nov., 1879.
THE LAW OF COMPENSATION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
THE LAW OF COMPENSATION. To TIE EDITOR of THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR.—In 42nd Victoria, No. 31, and the 20th clause of the Railways Act, 1878, I find the following for the guidance of arbitrators and others. " All the costs of such arbitra- tion and incident thereto to be settled by the arbitrators shall be borne by the commission, &nbsp; unless the arbitrators shall award the same, or a less sum than shall have been offered by the commission, in which case each party &nbsp; shall bear his own costs incident to the arbi- &nbsp; tration, and the cost of the arbitration shall &nbsp; be borne by the parties in equal proportion ; but if the sum awarded shall be one-fourth less than the amount claimed, the whole cost &nbsp; and incident to the arbitration and award shall be borne by the claimant." Can you tell me, Sir, how the clause quot- ed from, would apply in the following case : A claims £100 compensation ; the commission offers £70 ; the arbitr...
THE HIGH SCHOOL AND THE LATE CHIEF JUSTICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 28 November 1879
THE HIGH SCHOOL AND THE LATE CHIEF JUSTICE. To THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. DEAR SIR,—It is with pain that I feel obliged to refer to some remarks which: "H" has seen fit to make in the columns of your city contem- porary. In the first place the funeral was not a public one, and, even if it had been, I do not think the school would have attended en masse. Secondly, " H " entirely misunderstands the nature of a High School, if he considers that it is, by any means, part of such an establishment &nbsp; to be prominently connected with public as- semblages, and I believe I have in my posses- sion a letter which the deceased wrote to me &nbsp; some time ago, himself deprecating such a notion. I expressed a wish that the school should be &nbsp; present, but I did not feel myself justified in enforcing such attendance, preferring to leave it to the good feeling of the boys. The late Chief Justice has always been a true and valued friend to me, the loss of who...

RECEPTION AT POST DARWIN. (Northern Territory Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879
Réception at Port Dabwin. (Northern Territory Times.) The exploring party under the command of Mr. Alexander Forrest, which left the De Grey River, Western Australia, for the Northern Territory, in February last, arrived here at 12-30 on Tuesday, the 7th October, per the steam launch, "Apis." On landing at Gulnare Jetty, Mr. Forrest was met by the Chairman and members of the District Council, and a fair sprinkling of the inhabitants. The Chair- man (Mr. Skelton) stepped forward, and in a few well chosen words bid Mr. Forrest wel- come. Mr. Skelton then called on Mr. A. D. Gore to read the congratulatory address, of which the following is a copy :-*' Palmerston, 7th October, 1879. To A. Forrest Esq., Leader of the Western Australian Exploring Expedi- tion. We, the undersigned Chairman and members of the Palmerston District Council, as representativesof the citizens of Palmerston, congratulate you on the termination of the arduous and noble undertaking you have so successfully complet...
Country Letters. TOODYAY, Nov. 24. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879
(Ekroittrg yetto. TOODYAY, Nov. 24. The season, up to the present, is everything that could be desired. Hay is nearly all gath-' ered in, and barley and oats are now being reaped. The wheat crops up to the present time are looking splendid, and a good yield is expected. Our little town is very quiet just now, the reaction after the excitement of fair time hav- ing set in. Lately we have had nothing to dis- turb our normal serenity, with the exception of the municipal election, which took place-so I am informed-on the 18th of the present month, instead of the 17th as provided for by the Municipal Act. No one knew anything of the election except the late Chairman, and a few favored Councillors Not a single rate- payer, I am informed, put in an appearance on the auspicuous occasion, and how the election was got through I cannot imagine. It was however managed in some way or other, but I should say the whole proceedings were alto- gether informal, for no one but His Excellency the Gover...
MR. LEEDER IN REPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879
MR. LEEDER IN REPLY. To the Editob op the West Attstbaman. Sie.-In your issue of the 18th instant, I noticed a letter from your Toodyay correspon- dent, commenting on what he calls our local " horticultural" society. I did not know we had such a society, or that such an association ever existed in the Eastern districts. - The Agricultural Society it is true have added to their list of awards, certain prizes for veget- ables, flowers, and dairy nroäjflt; but that is alL HP^ Your correspondent sgâ^Hftiate show was in no way encouraging>.^HKty8 " he thinks .a I mistake was made when forming the society to fix the entrance fee so high as £3." Your cor- respondent must be dreaming, for the value of the prizes offered is only JB1 each for veget- ables, flowers, and dairy produce. When the society added these prizes to their list, an en- trance fee was not thought of, as any person not being a member could by paying £2, (not £3) compete for any and all the prizes on the list; members by...

'" West Australian" Office,") Dec. 1st. j . . realil dence in 'party administration' with any ' conceivable theory of rational Government, it is difficult to see what political system i which would equally secure the liberties of the people, could, in large British communi- ties, be adopted in its stead. The Prince Consort drew a storm of abuse apon himself when he pronounced it as his opinion that government by party was on its trial ; and yet few would deny that results have proved him to have been justi- fied in so saying, and that the system of what we now call ministerial responsibility, a system which,-as we understand it-is to a great extent a product of the reign of Queen Victoria, a...

GLEANINGS [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 2 December 1879
GLEANINGS If plenty of salt is given to milch cows butter will be obtained more easily than if ¡salt is only fed occasionally. The ancient mode of making butter was by placing it in a goat skin and agit- ating it by the hand, or by treading it with the feet. . i Whatwillour West Australianjfarmers'daugh ters say to this?.
