THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1880. IS THE EARTH BECOMING BALD? [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

THE üt australian. Vigilan s et Audax. lf^T^,lf¿ÍDAY/ÁTRILh, 1880? IS THE EARTH BECOMING BALD ? In carious contrast to articles which hare lately been appearing in these columns from the pen of our contributor ' David' is a paper by Mb. James Smith in the April number of the Victoria* Review. " David" in wri- ting of the Eastern Districts dilates upon tho timber-plague with which our agricultural settlers have towage constant battle, and discusses the best means for keeping this farmer's arch-enemy within reasonable bounds. Mb. James Smith, on the other hand, asks the startling question, ' Is the earth becoming bald ?'-answers it at onoe in theaffirmative, and predicts waste and ruin* a parched earth, a lost civilization, as a cer- tain and not unremote consequence of the forest destruction which in all parts of the world is now going on. He points to Persian wastes, to the sand drifts and marshes of the Euphrates valley, whereonce great oities, Babylon and Nineveh and a hundred mor...

THE TRUE MISSION OF THE 'CHANDERNAGORE.' [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

THE TRUE MISSION OF THE 'CHANDERNAGORE'   The wonderful story of the threatened invas ion of Western Australia by an armed French   privateer, turns out to be a hoax after all. The   mission of the Chandernagore was a thoroughly peaceable one — a well organised effort to co- lonize New Ireland which we hope may prove   successful. The Sydney Morning Herald says : " We have several times within the last few years heard of attempts to organize parties to settle in New Guinea, or in one or other of the numerous islands in the Pacific, but from a variety of reason, as want of funds or defective organization, the efforts of the promoters have proved unsuccessful. Only a short time back an Italian expedition, was spoken of, but this, we believe, fell through. At last, some action has been, taken and this is mainly due to the energy and enterprise evinced by the Marquis de Rays the Bolivian chargé d' affaires in France. This gentleman, at...

MOUNT WITTENOOM POLICE STATION AND HOSPITAL ACCOMMODATION AT GERALDTON. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

MOUNT WITTENOOM POLICE STATION AND HOSPITAL ACCOMMODATION AT GERALDTON. To THE EdITOE OF THB WbST AUSTRALIAN. Sib.-With reference to a letter which ap- peared in your issue of Tuesday last respecting the position of the police station at Mt. Wit- tenoom, I should be much obliged if you would insert the following remarks in your next. Three of the Murchison settlers were, I be- lieve, consulted as to the most convenient site for the said station, and these gentlemen, as also the settlers on the Upper Mnrchision, de- rive great benefit from it. But those who own stations to the Southward of Mt. Wittenoom, find it as convenient to obtain police assistance from Geraldton as »they have done hitherto. Some of them are from 150 to 200 miles from Mt. Wittenoom, whereas the distance to Ger- aldton is less. The Murchison settlers, who have hitherto been obliged to send in over 350 - miles to the Bay, now have only 150 miles to travel in order to reach Mt. Wittenoom; bnt, on the other hand, Mt...

FREE TRADE v. PROTECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

FREE TRADE v. PROTECTION. A large concourse of people assembled re- cently in the Masonic Hall, Sydney, to listen to a debate upon Free Trade and Protection, between Mr. David Buchanan, M.L.A., and Mr. G. H. Reid. The fiscal policy of New South Wales, at present one of the most flourishing of the Australian colonies, has been based, as is well known, upon free-trade principles. There has, however, always been small party, chiefly belonging to the artizan   class, in favour of a return to protection ; and this party has derived some increase of strength of late, through the conversion to protective principles of Mr. David Buchanan, a rather prominent member of the Assembly. Some agitation has been the consequence, and Mr. Reid came forward in the columns of the Morning Herald as the champion of free trade. Thereupon Mr. Buchanan chal- lenged Mr. Reid to meet him in public and debate the question, a challenge which was accepted. New South Wales being distinctly free tradi...

The Novelist. MISS ROVEL. (From the French.) [Concluded.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

MISS KOVBL. (From the French.) [Concluded.] »Ofcourse,' said Lady Korol to Mr. Glover, ' you are a hero, and great minds despise small scruples. You must excuse my son ; the youth of our time is wonder- fully petty-minded.' * William ! this is your affair ; we shall now see of what stuff you ax» made. I will send you whatever legal documents tare necessary to enable you to act, and to-morrow I will inform your sister of my wishes.

CULTIVATION OF THE WATTLE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 23 April 1880

CULTIVATION OF THE WATTLE. To THB Editob op thb West Australian. Sib,-Some weeks ago you gave in a leading article a short sketch of the advantages to be derived from the cnltivation of the wattle, and I now send for .the benefit of your readers some further information on this subject which I find in the Auttrakman. Wattle-barking has been to the Victorian ' cockatoo* what sandalwood-carting has been to many West Australian farmers,-a means of making np, in bad seasons, for what the earth refuses to produce. Sandalwood is often spoken of as the bane of West Australian farming, and to a certain extont no doubt this has proved to be the case. " David," in your columns, has clearly shown how much more profitably the same labour might be employed in wheat-grow- ing, which is now expended in carting sandal- wood. He has shown also how the first cost of clearing often deters the settler from putting his labour to the best account. Sandalwood, however, as a stand-by in times of need, is b...

FACTS versus THEORY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 April 1880

FACTS vernit THEORY. To the Editor of thb West Australian, Sib.-In the Wett Australian of the 23rd inst. I notice a leading article commenting upon a* paper contributed by Mr. James Smith to the Vittoria» Beview, in which it is attempted to show that the clearing of a country's timber causes less raia to fall. Mr. Smith commences byfreferring to the old countries of the East, in support of his theory, and then comes to Amer« ica and on to Australia. Of the old countries in the East, I can say nothing, for or against his theory ; neither can I say mach of America. Bat tus I do know the silting an of the Sacramento River, and es- pecially of that portion of it where it empties itself into the Bay of California, is cansad, not by forest clearing, but by the slough from the gold-washings up in the neighbouring hills. While I was in California last year, an action at law was brought by a farmer on the Sacra- mento against a gold-washing company, for in« jury done to his land by the silti...

What we want is labour, and if there be any snare men able and willing to work they will find ready employment in Northam this winter at grub- bing and clearing. Oar farmers are atlast awakening to the fact that larger profite will come by an increased breadth of land under cultivation. On most farms the same machinery and labor now employed would be ample for three times the land worked. I under...
