THE STORY-TELLER. THE GREEK MAID. CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

THE STORY-TELLER. THE GREEK MAID. CHAPTER II. Three days after this-a weary time oh, Zeph6, Zephe! is not your fond heart breaking with impatience? Four days! and your aching eyes too plainly show your father the fire of impatience fiercely raging in your bosom. Five days! and those sobs which seem to force themselves through the walls of strength you had so bravely built up, seem almost to indicate that all within is broken and destroyed. How beauty fades before despair, and youthful charms are harrowed up by the deep furrows of deferred hope. Scarcely would you have known the bright maid of Greece in one short week from the even ing of her last meeting with her lover, so keenly had grief and disappointment weighed down and crushed her ardent hopes. The old nurse, constantly watched by her father, had not dared to reveal to her the cause of Foster's absence, and Ergaces, in his frequent visits to his child's apartments, had not betrayed his knowledge of her secret. Thus Zeph6 was t...

Miscellaneous. SHEEP IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

SHEEP IN AUSTRALIA. The increase of live stock in Australia has so outgrown the requirements of the popula tion, writes the Times, thatan influentialmeet ing of squatters of the Riverine districts was held at Deniliquin, in May, at which it was re solved to establish at Hay, on the lMIurrum bidgee, a joint-stock establishment capable of boiling down 10,000 sheep a week. Mr. Gid ron Lang was appointed chairman of the com pany, The statistics show that in 1842 there were in Australia 6,194,004 sheep and 1,006,233 cattle, which, on the 31st December, 1865, had increased to 33,381,733 sheep:;and .3,957,270 cattle in Anstralia, and 5,075,000 sheep and 265,000 cattle in New Zealand, 3,758,175 sheep and 620,438 cattle have been boiled down during that period. This great increase, coup led with the fact that the country in the far interior is now considered to be stocked to the lmunits of what could be profitably occupied, appears to have left no alternative but to pro vide for the annual a...

PROVINCIALISM IN W. A. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

PROVINCIALISM IN W. A. Many years ago the members of a certain li terary coterie, best known to posterity by their connection with the Minerva Press, spent their harmless lives in writing novels thickly studded with the fustian sentiment that charmed our grandmothers, and scribbling verses, hateful to g·ods and men. Those were the days of fulsome dedications to lordly patrons: these worthies, however, in defiance of precedent, invariably dedicated their milk-and-water effusions to each other ; and, with a wholesome dread of Scotch leviewers, wisely resolved to be their own critics. The result of this sagacious policy was obvious. They patted each other on the back so zealously, that while each believed himself pos. sessed of considerably more than a spark of the true Promethean fire, all felt convinced that their inanities were destined to exercise a marked influence on the tone of English literature. The cause of this singular monomania in a community of otherwise estimable English...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

IMIGRATION is the life blood of young communities; without it they languish, fade and die, or at best drag out a mise rable existence. What country has pro gressed without it ? what colony that has taken cautious prudent steps to promote it has not progressed and flourished? It matters not what the natural resources of a country may be, if there is not labor to develop them they may as well not ex ist. Wealth is begot of population not population of wealth. One country may present a better and more attractive field for the immigrant than another, and the tide ofpopulation determining toit will soon raise it from a condition of poverty and insignificance to one of wealth and im portance. No where, and in no time, has this been better illustrated than in the history of the colony of Victoria. What was she before 1851 ?-What is she now? The history of that colony shews what can be accomplished by an immigrant population actuated by a spirit of industry, energy and enterprise. We will f...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I notice in the Inquirer a letter signed " C. K. D." which should be I think D. K. C. deploring the little, interest shown by;the members of Mechanics Institute in its management, welfare and progress ; and he complains of the difficulty of.gettingtogether a number of members suffi cient to constitute a meeting. "The minute book" he says" which I was looking over lately -(poor man no doubt in sorrow he did it)-is simply a statement of Meetings called since last August and adjourned over and over again for want of a sufficient number (9) to enable those who were present to hold a Metting." Surely his eye filled with tears as he reflected on the degeneracy of the present members, andcompared their apathy and indifference with the zeal and activity of those before. But "the light of other day's has faded," and it will require some thing stronger than C. K. D. can administer, to enable the enfeebled constitution of the Institu tion:to recoup. How pathet...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Judging from your leading article of to-day, you appear to be under the impression that Mr. J. W. Hardy has been recommended to the Se cretary of State for the Colonies to be nomina ted as member of Council to represent the Vic toria district. I find also that this is generally given as the opinion of those with whom I have spoken on the subject, and some gentlemen who disapprove of the action taken by the settlers of the Vic toria district have made the silly remark that "it serves them right." I therefore beg to say that, the whole of such opinions originate in error. The fact of the Imperial Parliament under which the present Council is constituted does not recognise district representation in any shape whatever. The nomination of Mr. Hardey, is therefore not an insult to the settlers in the Victoria dis trict more particularly than any other portion of the Colonists on the part of the Governor; how ever it shows a wanton disregard of public opin...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, A new broom sweeps clean, is an old and a. triie saying, and was never better exemplified than in the ease of the Volunteers of this town. Whether Mr. Manning was or was not fitted to be Captain of the Corps, I will not now discuss, nor will I recapitulate the causes that led to disagreements between himself and the Corps nor enumerate the annoyances-some of them paltry and vexatious-which induced him to throw up his commission. I desire only to draw attention to two facts. When Gaptain Manning first assumed command his popularity was unbounded-the Corps would have stormed a town under him, he cculd do anything with his men, and the Captain's praise was in each mans' mouth. As he grew stale Iis popularity declined, untilat last not only would they not attend parade at his order, but requested the commandant to call upon him to resign-a gross breath of military etiquette and discipline, if not, Mutiny. Captain Finnerty assumes temporary command and t...

THE CHAIN GANG. To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

THE CHAIN GANG. To theEditor of The Herald. SIR, For some time past the inhabitants of Fre mantle have not been annoyed by the discharge of the signal gun, nor regretting the danger that unfortunate foolish men run of being shot down like dogs, and the chance of an old sentinel be ing compelled to blow a fellow creature's brains out in the performance of his duty, in fact the prisoners seem entirely altered. It is to be hoped this most wretched class of prisoners will no longer persevere in a course of conduct which has brought them so very very near being hanged and hurried to death. I hope they will continue to do as they are doing, and that they may yet become useful members of society. Persons are surprised to see the manner in which their wheel-barrows are driven along whilst the long and rapid strokes of the sawyers' arms shew their eagerness to work. I am not one of those individuals possessed of such mawkish sensibility as wouldsinduceme to lavish praise on a ruffian. Butwhi...

THE PEARL FISHERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 January 1868

*THE PEAR;L FISHERY. WE have been favored with some interesting particulars connected with the' Pearl Shell fisheries on the North-Westcoast. We now place them before our readers satis fied that however imperfect the sketch may be it will, pending further information prove ac ceptable to the public, who are naturally deeply interested in the success of an Industry which may yet form one, if not the principal one of our Colonial Industries. Some years ago the Dolphin brought down from Tien Tsin, a few shells, which at the time attracted little or no attention-forwarded to Birmingham, celebrated for its manufacture of Pearl Shells into Ornamental articles for the toilette table, and of pearl handles for desert knives and forks such of them as presented an even surface brought a large price, whilst the inferior shells, (and most of them were defec tive) commanded a remunerative price for studs and buttons, and lesser articles. Even when the accounts of this favorable reception reached ...

To the Editor of Thle Herald. SIR, I observe in the advertisement columns of your excellent paper, that the newMail Contrac tor for the Southern Districts (MI?r. Hardman) is about, (or will be doing so before this reaches you for insertion) to run apassenger conveyance as far as Bunbury only, and that the charge is to be £2 10s. from Perth, passengers fning them selves. Mr. Hardman must. imagine that this part of the Colony is the Eldorado, by charging such an exorbitant price-I hope he may find it so. I consider that 30s. from Perth to Bunbury and 10s. extra to the Vasse quite sufficient, and would prove far more remunerative than the present figure-he will only have very'few pas sengers indeed. The coasters still continue to take passengers from the Vasse for 30s., finding them in provisions. Mr. Hardman I see makes some reduction-in fact half price, 25s. for all children under fourteen. Now I know some bouncing girls at that age and strapping boys too, whose weight would prove co...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Will you permit me to say a few words re specting the bathing places at Fremantle. During all the years, the colony has been established, no attempt has ever been made to afford accommodation to bathers, either by the construction of public bathing places at the expense of the Government, or by the establish ment of bathing machines by private enterprise. In any other part of the world but this, some individual would have been found sharp sighted enough to have seen the harvest to be reaped in the summer season by the possession of a bathing machine, and would,very quickly have convenienced the public and benefitted himself. For want of proper accommodation females have been almost totally excluded from indulging in the healthy, invigorating luxury of bathing, unless they were bold enough to venture in on an exposed beach, at a very early or late hour. Some little time since, owing to representa tions being made, a place was set a part for the exclu...

THE STORY-TELLER. THE TALLYMAN. " Kiss the book," says the High Bailiff, and I kissed it; and there I was, sworn, and standing perched up in the box there, like an image, for everyone to look at, and, as a matter of course, every one looked at me till I felt very uncom fortable, and damp about the forehead and inside the hands. Not as I'd got anything to mind, as I told myselftwenty times over: I was call..d up there as a witness, and all I had to do was to tell the truth and mind nobody. Well, I was for the defendant, and I said what I knew; and it was simple enough, proving that the plaintiff-one of those sharp, pushing tally-men--had regularly forced a lot of things on my mate's wife, and then kept her in constant dread till, in a regular fit of despair, she did what she ought to have done first, and what I wanted her to do-told her husband. You see, I knew about it, for she made a friend of, my wife, from living next door, and was in such trouble at last-being rather a weak woma...

Oth~s alth Caths. THE EMPEROR THEODORE. Doffing my hat and shoes, leaving the latter on the threshold, I made a bold advance into the interior of the hut ; but great was my sur prise when, instead of finding anywhere the outward paraphernalia of Oriental royalty, I beheld the famous Theodore, the renowned war rior and absolute lord of a great dominion, dressed in a plain cotton shirt and trowsers, and these not over clean, seated, not on a throne, but on a low divan raised about a foot from the ground. Thinking at first that it could not be the king himself who was seated before me, the. profound bow with weich I entered was rather uncertainly directed. His request by indication that I would be seated re-assured me, and, doub Ing my legs up in the Oriental manner, I squat ted down among the rest. We were now well supplied with arracky and tedge (honey-wine) in the drinking line, as well as with a plain break fast of teff bread and stewed meat to satisfy the more solid demands of hun...
