THE LEICHARDT EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

THE LEICHARDT EXPEDITION. We have received information as to   the private expedition which has been set on foot by a few gentlemen desiring to give Andrew Hume another opportu- nity of proving the veracity of his state- ments respecting the existence of Mr. Classan, and of relics of Leichardt, in the north-western portion of this conti- nent. Besides Andrew Hume, the party will consist of (1.) James J. Gascoin, late staff-sergeant in the Defence Corps. This officer, aged 39 years, has, it appears, served in various parts of the world. He carries medals for service in the Baltic and Black Sea fleets during the Crimean war in H.M.S. Odin, during both of which campaigns he saw active service, and was six months in the-trenches be- fore Sebastopol. Leaving the navy, he states that he joined the police force in Calcutta in 1857, and remained in that force two years, until the end of the In- dian mutiny. Beturning to England, he joined the Metropolitan police in Lou- don, in...

The Western Australian Times. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAT, AUGUST 14, 1874. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

%\n ©estent ^ustralfcm ffiíntcs. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. iPRIDAT, AUGUST 14, 1874. The speech of His Excellency the Go- vernor as it needs no praise, so neither does it demand much comment, express- ing so clearly as it does, the wise discre- tion and true constitutional judgment which determined the dissolution it announced. There is little credit due to the having anticipated the leading points of his policy during the present session, or its final culmination in his appeal to the people, for if the conduct of His Ex- cellency were to be judged by his antecedents here or elsewhere, such results might naturally have been ex- pected, and such a judgment his speech confirms aud we do not doubt that it will be eudorsed by the people .There is however one expression in that speech to which we would direct attention ; viz., " my Executive in the Council," and the implication that the action taken by that Executive was, as indeed it could' not rwell be otherwise, consequent on the policy ...

MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

MINING. The following Mining Report has been forwarded to us for publication : CHARLES CROWTHER ESQ. Sir,-Since my last report of the above Mine, we have resumed the sinking of the Mun or Engine shaft, (which will be known in future as Orowther's shaft). Th * lode in the present bottom, which is about 9 feet below the seven tathom. drive, is 4 feet wide, and yields fully 4 (tour) tons of lead per fathom. A drive has oeen extended about 12 feei from the said shaft in a S.W. direction, the lode in which, is, at present, slightly disordered, and is not there- fore of much value :-this alteration, however, is only temporary, in my opinion. A stope is being worked, N.E., from the sane shaft by six men, worth £40 per fathom, and tne lode has every appearance of perma- nency. I may add, that iu this stope, the water is, (so to say) boiling up with great force, i rom the bottom, thus proving the lode to be of a very porous character, for some considerable length and depth; and it is but sel...

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

NOTES ON KESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. As Responsible Government is the order of the day, it may be well to consider its origin aud .intention-^how that iorm of Government gradually-developed itself in the country in which ii originated and when, how very recently, it has at tained to the . more nearly perfect prao tice of the theory expressed ^ by that term, which, -as it is now in every man's mouth, should represent a distinct and definite idea in every man's mind. Representative institutions are common in some form to many, indeed to most nations; in Europe, among the Celtic population, takiug an oligarchical form j among the Saxon, democratic ; but Re- sponsible Government, subordinating the power of the head of the State to the union of those, uniting, that is, the three principal forms oí Government in one, with an Executive responsible to each and to all, as, we might say, applying the motto of our united monarchy to its constitution. Tria junda in uno is the growth of the politica...

TORRENS'S LAND ACT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

TORRENS'S^LAND A<~T. TO THE EDITOB. Dear Sir,-I see Torrens'» Act has passed the Council, and no doubt a grateful, and hitherto much injured public will shortly be in ¡i position to appreciate the assistance that the " attainments" of the hon. the Acting Attorney General enabled him to give in the preparation ? nd passing of the measure, as also to. see.-and " acknowledge the vast beneficence of its scope and the just simplicity of its principles" {vide the hon. and learned gentleman's speech, 21st July). The learned gentleman evidently con siders the Act perfect,-an extraordinary change from opinions held by him a short time ago. when an Act based on similar principles was introduced. Perhaps, however, his Act is not like the previous one. No doubt it has been rendered much better by the fact of his " attain- ments" being brought to hear on it. Moreover the previous Act was only drawn by a con veyancer of thirty years' standing, and based upon the Victorian Act,-an Act t...

A SUGGESTION. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

A SUGGESTION. TO THE EDITOB. Sir,-I see by your paper that the gentle- men of the Council met together lately to try .if they could fiad out any law that would make better times for us, but after talking about it twice, they found they could not agree, and the Governor sent them about their business. Now my son has been reading in a book about what was done in England long ago, when the times were bad, and when the king and the gentle- men could not find out any good laws either. The book is called Shakspeare, and to be sure a wonderful book it is, to tell what did happen in those times. It goes on to tell how one Jack Cade, who was a clothier by trade, caine among them, and said he would show them all how to make laws, and ordered his men to burn the law-books, for he would be the Parliament himself-not unlike Mr. Barlee here-and speak the laws out of his own mouth. He sat upon London stone, and there he did make Borne fine laws to be sure. The first law he made was that the founta...

GENTLEMEN,-In consequence of the dissolution of the Legislative Council, -you are again called upon to exercise" the privilege of electing two members to represent you in Council. I have been solicited to offer- myself as a candidate, and* being of opinion that the importance of the issue now before the country demands some sacrifice from those who are in any way interested in its welfare, I have acceded to tbe request, and now venture to seek the honor oí being returned as one of your represen- tatives.

Local and General. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

Local and General.   DROWNED.-Two deaths by drowning occur- red on Sunday last under the following painful circumstances. Mr. Herold, who formerly car- ried on the business of a dyer in Perth, was, in company with his stepson, a boy eleven years of age, out duck-shooting, in a boat on Monger's Lake They were last seen alive about four o'clock in the afternoon, when the father was heard cautioning his son to be careful in his movements in the boat. Shortly afterwards the boat capsized, and its occupants were pre- cipitated into the Lake, where their bodies were discovered on Tuesday afternoon, the boy being locked in his father's embrace. The Good Templars, to which Order the deceased belonged, followed their remains to their last resting place. Neither Mr. Herold, nor his stepson, was an expert swimmer; had either of them been, the probability is that their lives would have been saved. Swimming has by many been considered as primitive or instinc- tive knowledge, and tha...

PERTH POLICE COURT. (Before E. W. Landor, Esq., PM.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 14 August 1874

PERTH POLICE COUltf. (before E. W. Landor, Esq., PM.) Thomas Walker, a seaman belonging to the s.s. Georgette, and Robert Burns, were brought up charged with having at the last sitting of the Supreme Court committed wilful and corrupt perjury. Detective Sergt. Rowe stated the present proceedings against the prisoners were instituted by the directions of His Honor the Acting Chief Justice, and that the charge arose out of evidence given by the accused on behalf of a prisoner named Yates, who at the last criminal sessions, was tried, convicted and sentenced to 7 years' penal servitude, for perjury. Yates, at the Police Court, at the preliminary investigation swore an alibi in favor of a man named Hurley, who   was charged with aiding and abetting in an attempted burglary at the house of Mr. Eben- ezer Saw. Although the police was quite convinced that Hurley was the man, the weight of evidence was so strong that the Bench gave the prisoner the benefit of the doubt of ident...

8foe Western australian Smtst. SOIiTJM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, AUGUST 21, 1874. THE note of preparation, which we heard last week, had, as it now appears, but an uncertain sound ; Mr. STONE retires from the contest, even before it has com- menced, in favour of Mr. LUKE LEAKE, whose political opinions are, we believe, in direct opposition to his own. This, which we presume is a concession to Mr. LEAKE'S late position, is an act of political courtesy as singular as it must have been unexpected, and for which Mr. LEAKE may well be grateful as con- trary to his original intention he will now again " submit himself to the appro- bation " of his fellow citizens, " at the poll," as he says in answer " to a most flattering requisition," signed by some eighty persons ,. as also does Mr. BIRCH, so that the two late members for Perth are again candidates for the represen- tation of the city ; and we presume, from their respectively signing the requisitions to each other, as well as the simila...

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 21 August 1874

NOTES ON RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT. {Continued^) As Eesponsible Government is based on the theory enunciated by HOOKER, and in practice on popular representation, or, as expressed by BURKE, in one sentence, "The virtue, spirit, and essence of a " House of Commons consists in its being " the expressions of the feelings of a na " tion." As our aucessors, in 1688, established the English Constitution on this basis, as HALLAM says, " They " looked not so much to Magna Charta " as to the original compact of society, " and rejected COKE and HALE for Hoo " KER and HARRINGTON," jp it is ob- vious that the due exercise, and the ob- taining the full advantages of that form of Government then inaugurated, and which is our inheritance from them, can be consequent only on the due apprecia- tion and faithful observance of .their re- sponsibilities by the electors themselves. It has been too much the fashion to cry out on this occasion against the King or his Ministers, on that against the Lords, and...
