A FAST BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
A FAST BOOK.-The racing calendar. Mushrooms may be exctedte in dew season.. There is an old saying tha1t '"a fellow-feeling makes us wondrous Uigd." But this is not al-.. ways the case. Wyn, we find a fellow feeling' for our watch we ~re by no means inclined to be. wondrous kind,.

GOLD MINING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
GOLD MINING. The following are interesting statistics of the part in present history of the Victoria Gold Mines :- The gold exported in 1865 was 1,543,801 ounces, and in 1866 1,479,194 ounces, show ing a falling off of 64,607 ounces. The earn ings per man in 1865 were computed at ~74 15s. lld. and in 1866 £80 8s. 3d. A con siderable number of persons formerly engaged in gold-mining have found it more profitable to engage in other pursuits. A large decrease in the number of miners is noticed. Many of them, it is considered, have permanently for raken the gold fields, which, although per haps regarded by many as a hopeful sign, will, it is thought, be seen with regret by thosewho take larger views and observe how wages are controlled. In 1865 the mean number ofmi. ners employed throughout the year was 83,214 and this year it is 73,577 showing a decrease of 9,639. A table of the average earnings per man since 1860 shows that at that period they amounted to £79, 9s. 3d.; that they decli...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
TiE last mail was totally silent with respect to the appointment of our future Governor, nor are private accounts much more satisfactory. The" Organ" hashoweverbeen favored with a despatch forwarded to the Gover nor in "reply to the memorial of 719 in Iabitants of Western Australi: praying that Dr. Hampton's term of government should be prolonged." It is not clear whether it was a direct communication to the Governor, or in tended for the memorialists. The com iei8ncement; of the second paragraph. .I -haye had much satisfaction in re eeiving this expression of the favorable opm!oil entertained of your administra ,tion &c., &o." would lead us to suppose that it was officially addressed to, and in tended for Governor Hampton, but as it appears-it was transmitted to Mr. John Haidy, who forwarded it to the "Organ" with a running commentary of his own, quite as unsatisfactory and ambiguous as that of the Secretary of State's despatch. Mr. Hardy "congratulates his E]xcel l...
NATIVE MISSIONS. II To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
NATIVE MISSIONS. II To t-he lditor of The Herald. SIR, I had not intended asking so large a space in your paper of this week. Much that I had pur posed to say" Veritas " has better said. He has shewn that the Rev. Mr. Innes, in citing the childrens' fete in the Government desmine,as an example of what inay be effeeted by religious union, and as therefore foreshowing the success that would be likely to attend a mission directed by a mixed board of Managers, has doubly erred. For had that day of juvenile feasting and fun been strictly the fruit of a combined religious movement, its value in shewing what a similar combination would effect in the tedious, difficult and costly work of teaching arid christianizing natives, would have been inconceivably small. But it was not a religious success at all, it was simply a social one. The endeavor to give it a religiout aspect was distinctly repudiated, and a very large share of its support was due to the circumstance,that it was to embrace all...
LONDON WOOL REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
LONDON WOOL REPORT. The fourth seriers of colonial wool sales of the year commenced on Nov. 14. The catalogue comprised 2499 bales Cape, 866, Sydney, 424 New Zealand, 420 Port Phillip, 28 Adelaide, making a total of 4297 bales. Thr attendance of the Eng lish trade was fair, and the number of foreign buyers rather under the average for the season. -The'bulk of the catalogue consisted of Cape waol, the rates of which showed a decline of about 2d. per lb. from September prices. The assort ment of Australian was limited in a great measure to scoured descriptions, which, as compared wi h the closing quotations. of the late series,, sold |decidedly in the buyers' favor. A very bad business and an undeniable. overproduction of wool are the main-: .causes of this fresh decline ; the former.' may probably improve but the lattert must necessarily continue its influence. The supply of Australian sorts beinglimi.' ted more ,competition and firmness were..:. expected for them ; but it appears th...

(Bubtrlit @p inion. For the statement and opinions of our Corres Spondents, we do not hold ourselves.responsible. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, Mr. John Wall Hardy with unblushing ef frontery, in his letter of Wednesday last, con gratulates his Brother Colonists" at the gener "ous recognition on the part of the Secretary " of State of Governor Hampton's administra " tion of the Government among us"-the "Or gan " more modestly simply publishes the Dis patch to which Mr. Hardy's letter.refers. I shall not ask Mr. Hardy if he knows how the majority of the 719 signatures became at tached to the Memorial praying for a continu ance of his Friend's enlightened rule-because he does know well enough the persuasion, intimi dation, and trickery which was resorted to-and knows, too, that nany who signed it expressed an intention of signing a Memorial of an oppo site tendency should such be presented to them for the purpose ; but I ask Mr. Hardy if he is really so dull of comprehension, as n...

REVIEW. W. A. Church of England Magazine. FOR JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
REVIEW. F. A. Church of England M.agauine. FoR JANUARY. A short paper on the Pan-Anglican Synod--a barbarous compound phrase by the way--defends the conference of Bishops against the 'sneers and ridicule that have been so plentifully bestowed upon it by the newspaper press of Eng land. The article is too short to do the subject anything like justice, but as far as it goes, it is a good defence and is written in a spirit of commendable mode ration. It is very difficult to please some per sons, and this seems to be the case with the newspaper w'riters referred to by the author of the article in the magazine they refuse to be satisfied--ifthe Church, without noise or .parade, quietly endea vours to fulfil its mission it is denounced as apathetic, indiff:re i, and indolent; if it is active, energetic,' and zealous, it is stiSmatised as intrusive; and accused of presumption. To do the Bishops justice the Conference was not of their choice, it was forced upon them by the confu sion existi...

(From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 January 1868
(1'rom our own Correspondent.) On Friday evening las.t (3rd January) The Honorable The Colonial Secretary gave one of - his most interesting and instructive lectures at the New Hall of the Busselton Working Man's Association, which was a complete success. The subject chosen was "Some wonders of the present age," The New Hall (only. commenced in May last, the foundation stone of which the Honorable Lecturer laid) is certainly a credit to Sall connected with that association, and as that gentleman observed in his opening address on Friday evening, although the working men had met with such opposition and had had so many difficulties to contend with, their motto had been, and is, Union, and by putting their shoulders to the wheel have raised a building not only an or nament to the town in which they reside, but a living monument of what perseverance in a good cause can effect in the teeth of opposition. The lecture was well attended, the Hall being thrown open free to all alike, caused...

THE EASTERN DISTRICTS. II To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, In fulfilment of the promise I made you in my last communication, I now again intrude upon your space in order to give your readers an account of some of our doings and-having exercised my feeble pen in delineating the locale I'vill nowendeavour to portray the personeland help them out of the obscurity into which the neglect of the P'ress has enveloped them. But here a difficulty besets me which it cost me some mental trouble to overcome. It is all very well to criticise ; as long as you confine yourself to a thing, give vent to your feelings about an object, or scenery, you are safe enough and need not appretend either the resentment or the persecuting gratitude of the object of your disda-in or admiration; but if you point your' pen to an individ ual, however just your criticism may be, you are sure to incur the blame of partia!ity or perhaps more less support:able token of recognition. Be this however, as it mays-I said ...
