The Town Hall Clock.-On Saturday morning this estimable piece of public property began to exhibit symptoms of declining powers and failing health. When it should have announced the hour of nine, it was silent, but at a quarter past it made the amende honorable by striking ten, at a later hour there were further evidences of decay apparent. Whatever may be the cause we hope that Mr. Shenton will use his influence to get the errors of this here- tofore excellent time-server rectified. A Discovery.-Most of our readers are aware that...

The Western Australian Times SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 March 1875

®|j* ÏBestem iustaüan SDiutes. SOLUM NON MUTAT GENUS. TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 1*75. We print, in another column* a letter from, a member of the Standing Com- mittee of the Synod of the Protestant Episcopal Church in this colony ; we do so with much regret, because we are by it compelled to adduce proof that our criticism, as he is pleased to call it, of the transactions of the late Synod, did not contain, misstatements, if it did an inaccuracy. If he and the other members of the committee, have less reason to be pleased with what we now write, than they appear to have been with our former article, it is his fault, not ours. He takes exception to the accuracy of two statements, viz., that the members of the Synod adopted the report of the Com- mittee " without the possibility of know- ing what the appendices to that report contained," and that the Committee is responsible for not having placed all documents in the hands of those who were called on to approve them. What are the facts ? The...

THE BIBLE AND THE SCHOOLS. Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 16 March 1875

THE BIBLE AND THE SCHOOLS. Sydney Morning Herald. Sir,-Tf we may judge of the utterances of those who have spoken on either side of the recent controversy, we must conclude that both the League and the Church, of England Defence Association profess to have the same end in view,-namely, the primary education of as many as possible by some practicable method which shall include as much religious instruc- tion as shall be found compatible with the I* claims of the different denominations. The real question cannot surely be whether the word " secular" is properly or improperly applied to a system which includes such religious instruction. Tfcose who adopted that word may have been very stupid and ignorant ; but inasmuch as the League deliberately adopted religious instruction as part of its programme, whatever becomes of the word secular, they are agreed with the professions of the Bishop's party in the kind of éducation desired ; so far they only differ, if at all, as to the name by wh...

But the notice to Correspondents in your issue of the 26th Febry. is j: o extraordinary-referring to ¿he 2 0,000 acres of land taken up on lease toy Mr. J. Forrest-that I will venture to com- ment >upou it. It is devoutly to be wished that many more hundreds of thousands of aerea will î)è taken up in Mr. Forrest's track. But even if he had taken up 500,000 or 1,000,000 acres, what has that to do with th« telegram to which my letter referred. Mr. Taylor never touched or saw any of the country travelled by Mr. Forrest and his telegram refers particularly to lands situate between Champion Bay and the head of the Murchison. How very strange is that " a remarkable confirmation of the opinion expressed by Mr. Taylor, respecting the country about the source of the Murchison*' has not yet been revealed to the public ; nor so far as I am aware have any o...

®í)e testent australian ®i«ies. SOLTJM NON MUTAT GENUS. FRIDAY, MARCH 19, 1875. We should-be unwiiling-to-do more than give expression to the general regret for the lamentable death of the brothers Clarkson* if it wei*e not that- matters of public interest, which must always with us predominate over private, result from the report which we printed in our last, of the inquest held on the return of the search party. Although the cause of death, in one case at least,- is uncertain, we may con- gratulate the public on the absence of any evidence to prove it.'even in the other, to havebeen from the violence of the natives. We are thankful that it is un- necessary to enter into details which must be painful to all, but we think, that after reading the evidence, few will doubt that Mr. Fairbairn's conclusion is the right one, and that the verdict of the jury was the result of moral conviction and not of judicial consideration of the' evidence ; but we trust that the practical uses of adver...
