Occasional Notes. LOCAL AND GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 27 April 1880

Occasional Notes LOCAL AND GENERAL   A recent Sydney telegram says : " The Hon. A. H. Palmer, Colonial Secretary, spoke in very plain terms yesterday to a deputation of the Queensland National Association, on the lack of enterprise shown hy Queenslandcrs individu- ally in connection with the Sydney Exhibition, nearly all exhibits having had to be purchased by the Government. It had been determined, he   said, that Queensland should be worthily repre sented at Melbourne, but he hoped that exhibi- tors, who reaped the benefit, would not rely too much upon the Government.'" This dis- poses, of course, at once, of the ridiculous state- ment that our present form of constftution"it> at the bottom of the" apathy displayed by West Australians with regard to the Exhibition. Here we find in a colony possessing the covet- ed party governing institutions, exactly the same phenomenon as has been manifested among our- selves, leading also to the same result. For the ...

GUILDFORD, April 29th. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 April 1880

GUILDFORD, April 29th. The recent local court case, by which the Muncipal Council of Guildford sought to recover the payment of rates, last year, from Mr. Jecks, and which the court decided against him, has given ground for a fair share of interest and criticism. The bench when giving judgment stongly recommended the defendant to appeal. Following this, I hear that Mr. Jecks has ad- dressed a communication to the council, setting forth his idea of the importance of the matter involved, and the immediate necessity for hav- ing it decided by a higher court : and also sug- gesting that the muncipalities of the colony Bhould be called upon to contribute their share of the cost of appeal. The council having given the question careful consideration arrived at the conclusion that, it was not advisable to reopen a case, that had already been decided in its favor. A rumour having got about that His Excel- lency Governor Robinson would visit Guildford on Friday, the 30th inst., a special meet...

THE West Australian. VIGILANS ET AUDAX. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1880. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 April 1880

THE Wita %wtxâxm. Vigilans BT Audax. PERTH, FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 1880. We give today the last of a series of four papers, in which oar correspondent "David" deals with questions relating to the condition and further development of the Eastern Dis* tricts. In this fourth paper he considers the labour question-a question fast becom- ing of grave importance, and with regard to which some steps must necessarily ere long betaken. Even the make-shift expedient of Coolie introduction, for which the Council last year made provision, has been for the time set aside, and the want of a good and plentiful supply of hands to do the work of the farm and station will soon be most seri- ously felt. "David" suggests a plan by which he believes we might secure a class of immigrants such as we most require-an immigrant, who in the first place will prove a useful servant, and in the second place will be likely to develop into a useful settler Whether or not the class of boy which now feeds the training sh...

¡?J:-.» Vocabularies of the aborginal - languages .To the Editor of the West Australian: Sifc.-Though? I have not the pleasure of your acquaintance I hope you will excuse the liberty I take, in writing to ask your assistance, in coir lecting information for a work on which I have been engaged for several years, on the subject of the aborigines of the continent and their language, which is more or less a matter of which 1 may call national, as well as scientific interest. That such a work should be written whilst facts are yet obtainable direct from the blacks, most people willagree ; and;there is no doubt that the full knowledge of our tribes can only be had through the co-operation of gentlemen living on stations or in remote townships. The favor, then, which I ask from your good nature is, that you should make known to the publio-through the medium of your paper the nature of my undertaking, and my address, said en gage'your subscribers to support me with their assistance, princip...

Lord Hartington had an interview with the Queen, who gave him the choice of forming a Ministry, The Marquis, after consultation with the leaders of the Liberal party, formally declin-   ed, but suggested that Mr. Gladstone should be requested to form a Ministry.

WELCOME TEA-MEETING TO THE REV. MR. SHEARER, M.A. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 April 1880

WELCOME TEA-MEETING TO THE REV. MR. SHEARER, M.A. A very successful tea-meeting, to welcome the Rev. Mr. Shearer, Presbyterian minister, was held in St. George's Hall, on Wednesday evening. There were between 300 and 400 persons present, among whom we noticed Lady Leake, Mr. J.

The proceedings were interspersed with music, rendered by a mixed choir, representative of the various Pro- testant denominations. Sir Luke Leake said when he was asked to take the chair he had consented to do so out of good feeling-being always glad to assist in any good cause. The object of the meeting, as they were aware, was to offer a welcome to the Rev. Mr. Shearer, who, he understood, had been sent out here by the Established and Free Churches of Scotland.

%\t greift. A RUSSIAN KING IEAR. [From, the German of Ivan Turgénjev.] _ ', (Continued.) " My mother, as I have said, used to make much of Martin Petrovitch, for she was well aware in what deep veneration he ... held her. ' My gracious lady, of nobility as old as one of ourselves,' he used to call her, and he always spoke of her as his friend and benefactress ; while she, for her part, knew that in him she had at her command the services of a faithful giant who would have engaged single-handed in battle with a whole crowd of peasants, had her safety required it. And, although there was nothing to show that his protection was likely to be needed, still, my father being dead, and she alone in the world, such a defender as Martin Petro- vitch, was in case of future need by no means to be despised. And/morcover, he was an honest straightforward man, who never intrigued, who borrowed no money, drank no brandy, and-although his education had been sadly neglected- was hy no means a fool. M...

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 30 April 1880

OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS. IV. To foster agriculture is undoubtedly one of the first duties of the State. Unlike -mining, the average profits deriveable from agricultu- ral pursuits can be calculated with tolerable preoision. We sometimes prate of our great mineral resourcos, but mining is speculative in the extreme ; if a man invests money in min- ing shares, the value of those shares may per- haps in a few days be doubled, or on the other hand his money may be irretrievably lost ; but if he invests in agricultural pursuits he can foretell the results with tolerable certainty. And above all things it is obviously desirable that the state should give the greatest amount of encouragement to that industry which holds out the most certain prospect of advantage to tho largest number of its inhabitants. The experience of our adjoining, sister colony has proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that agriculture in Australia is not merely on its trial, but is perhaps the most profitable and legitim...
