Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

dtafáiraaT $jtoí«. LOCAL AND GENEMAL. A correspondent at the Greenough, writing on the 7th inst. says : " This district is begin- ning to wear quite an improved appearance compared to what it did lately. The green grass is springing up apace, and all Nature seems to rejoice. The rejoicing, I may say, is shared in by the inhabitants, who are in better spirits than they have been for some years past. The weather is mild and calm ; the wind seems to have expended all its force on Good Friday morning, when it blew a regular-or, rather, an irregular hurricane." A correspondent at the Vasse writes, under date April 10: "On Sunday last, the 4th inst., Mrs. Watson, the wife of the well-known boat builder of Perth, wlûle walking on the jetty of the W. A. Timber Company, at Lock- ville, slipped and fell off into the sea. Several persons were on the jetty at the time but un- able to render any assistance, and Mrs. Wat- son was just sinking for the last time when Chavles Fisher, a workman in th...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

THE Äst ÜÄsiniliiW. ViGiLANs ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1880. THE pastoral settlement of our territory has been rather rapidly extending during the last few years,-rapidly, that is to say, when compared with the slow and creeping pro- gress which it made in years gone by. Not so very long ago, what arc commonly called the ' settled districts ' were the only in- habited portions of Western Australia. Now the pioneer squatter, with his flocks and herds, is seeking fresh fields and pastures new in nearly every part of the vast area of our Crown Lands. From Eucla in the far South East to Beagle Bay in the North West, there is a more or less continuous chain of settlement. Stations near the Fraser Rango, at Capo Arid, and at Espcranco Ba3r, break the gap between King George's Sound and the head of the Great Bight. Northward from Champion Bay, pioneers are steadily pushing out upon the Murchison, Gascoign, Ashburton» on to Roebourne, while beyond, from the De Grey, reaching to the...

THE CULHAM ANNUAL FETE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

THE CULHAM ANNUAL FETE. On Friday, the 2nd inst., the annual fête was held at Culham. Though the weather was most threatening, about one o'clock large parties of people, grown up and growing, ar- rived from the neighbouring farms and from Newcastle, in carts, carriages, horse-back, and on foot. There was a stall of fancy articles provided, whichjwas well patronized, and from which excursions were made every now and t'.ien by ladies bearing cushions, and other a -tides of household furniture designed for in- flicting martyrdom upon wretched bachelors, to be raffled for-the cushions, not the bachel- ors. There were also (so-called) ' lucky' bags to be dipped into, so that there was no escape for even the shyest of youths, for, if they did not go to tho stalls, the stalls (or their con- tents; came to them. For the lovers of athletic sports, a cricket n.abell was begun, but, before many wickets had been bowled, a heavy shower caine down, putting tho cricketers to flight, and from this ...

Ipifo §iiÄ0eiwt Supreme Court-Civil Sittings. WEDNESDAY, APBIL 14. [Before His Sonor Chief Justice Wrenford êley.\ MOEBISON V. BlBCH AND OTHBB8. This was a motion for an order to pay the cost«, charges, and expenses of the plaintiff out of certain purchase money belonging to a bank- rupt estate. Mr. Burt appeared for the plaintiff; the de- fendant« were represented by Mr. Frank Stone. By a decree of the Court made on Sept. 3rd, 1879, certain landed properties belonging to Mr. Henty Birch, then a bankrupt, were di- rected to be sold, and it was ordered that the money arising out of the sale should be paid into court. The plaintiff, Mr. James Morrison, was appointed auctioneer; and, on the 24th October it was certified to the court that the premises in question, known as the "Limekiln" property, had been sold, and that Mr. Dennis Brennan was the highest bidder. Brennan was allowed by the Acting Chief Justice to have been the purchaser ot the property, at £1500. The purchaser, however,...

Correspondence. A LAND COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

faopikutt. A LAND COMPANY. To THE EDITOB OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIB,-Questions connected with the land, its improvement and its settlement, seem again to be occupying your space. This is as it should be, for, if newspapers are to be of any use be- yond being vehicles for the mere registry of passing events, they should promote the dis- cussion of subjects really worthy of attention, and questions connected with pastoral and agricultural settlement are certainly all-import- ant to us. I did not take part in the former discussion with regard to pastoral leases, but I have been brought out by an article in last Saturday's Herald-by two articles indeed. That wise and veracious paper informs us that we are all fools, we West Australian settlers-(for it is we who must be the fools, seeing that the Home Gov- ernment have never interfered to decree any- thing with regard to our Land Regulations con- trary to our own wishes, and our local Govern- ment has always consulted us)-and then tells...

HOME-GROWN FLOUR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 16 April 1880

HOME-GROWN FLOUR. To THE EDITOR OP THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. SIR,-We constantly hear complaints from the farmers that, notwithstanding the goodness of the last season, they have not benefitted as they should, because there is no sale for their produce, or at any rate because the rates ruling are not remunerative. We" hear also that large quantities of Ade- laide flour are still imported, while the home grown article does not find acceptance with the consumer. This is a serious matter, and it would be desirable to arrive at the cause. The bakers tell us, I am informed, that the fault is in the milling, that the millers won't clean their wheatf rom smut, and put too much water ivith it, and that the consequence is, they can't make such good bread with West Australian flour as with imported, and their customers don't like it; also that it does not go so far as the im- ported, which of course docs not please the bakers themselves. I think it well to bring this accusation for- ward-perhaps mi...

Coverley agreed, to give evidence for the Crown ; the charge against them was therefore dismissed, and they were set at liberty. The case was conducted by Detective Farrelly, from the head office, Perth. John Hutton, the first witness examined, said : I am stockman for Mr. Wm. Spencer at the Blackwood. I remember Sunday, the 14th March last. I was then at Mr. Spencer's farm. About 2 o'clock, Wm.

BECEPTION OF GOVERNOR ROBINSON AT ALBANY. Bather late in the day I send you some par- ticulars with reference to the reception of our new Governor, Sir William Robinson, who ar- rived here in the s.s. Assam early on the morn- ing of the 6th inst. Owing to uncertainty as to the time of the steamer's arrival no pre coucerted arrangements could be made to re- ceive His Excellency on landing, so it was de- termined by the Municipal Council to ask him through the Government .Resident to meet them at a fixed time and place. This was accordingly done. All the plaoes of busi- ness were closed in the afternoon, and the Chairman and Councillors of the Munici- pality, with a large and respectable body of the inhabitants, assembled in front of the public offices; the Albany Rifle Volunteer Company, under the command of Captain W. Finlay, being drawn up in line as a guard of honor, with their band in the rear. - His Excellency drove up from the Residency at 5 o'clock, when the Volunteers present...
