?oxaáw %ûttx$. (From our own correipondenü.) BUNBURY, April 26. With the exception of the election of a mem- ber of the Wellington Hoads Board, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late Mr. John Scott, jttnr., and which caused a spirited contest at the^Mechanics' Hall on Saturday, 24th inst., there is little or nothing to record during the past week. Two candidates were proposed for the.office. Mr. H. W. Venn, M.L.C., of Dar- danup Park, and Mr. W. J. Robert's junr., of Trenoreek Farm Vasse Road. Mr. Venn was Sroposed by Mr. W. Forrest and seconded by Ir. Shivers. Mr. Roberts was proposed by Mr. Carey, and seconded by Mr. M. VV. Cliftou. In proposing Mr. Venn, Mr. Forrest called upon the ratepayers to elect a gentleman who from the position he held could see that their wants afid-requiretnents in'road matters were attended to. Mr. Venn had, he said, great influence both in the district and out of it, and it was there- fore to their interest to give him a seat on the Road B...

'HOME GROWN v. FOREIGN FLOUR,' TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 4 May 1880

«HOME GROWN v. FOREIGN FLOUR, ?.?: . To the Editor \>f the West Australiah. |} Sir.-Your correspondent " Nor Wester," complains that home grown flour does'not keep as wèH as that imported from Adelaide and that it is subject to weevil, grub etc., which he attributes to the nulling, and he is doubtless right in his conjecture. The cause I believe in many instances is the too liberal use- of watef On the wheat before grinding. It is sometimes necessary to damp the wheat slightly during the dry weather after harvest, to make it less " flinty," if this is carried too far for the sake of increasing Weight, the consequences are as described by your' cor- respondent. The flour becomes sour, and weet* ii and other insects soon breed in it, and render it worthless. I have no hesitation in saying that if the wheat is properly harvested, - and properly treated by the miller home grown flour wal keep as well as any produced in any j part of the world, and I have been a producer, I and dealer...

Mtlt^\u ftöös. f Associated Press, j London, April 27th. News has been received at Lisbon that the Chinese are blockading Macao, a port in China, which has been held by the Portugese for some years, and have already captured seventeen vessels. The Portugese are sending a man of war to the scene of action; The Russian Government have forbidden the dispatch of supplies of corn to the Chinese forces in Kashgaria. The Marquis of Ripon Is appointed Viceroy of India. The Morning Post applauds the energy shown by Australians in their determination to follow up the experiment of shipping meat by the Strathleven, and expresses the nope tliat the pub- lic in England will countenance these efforts in every possible way.

THE LONDON CIRCUS [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 4 May 1880

THE LONDON CIRCUS This talented company opened at Perth, on Monday, the 20th inst.,toa very fair house. Unfortunately the stormy weather which after- wards set in and continued up to Thursday pre- vented their preforming as intended, but on Fri- day night they were rewarded with a full audi- ence. It would be but doiug justice to the troupe to characterise them individually as nnmistake ably clever. The acrobatic and gymnastic feats are astonishing. Mr. Leopold (although not lightly handicapped,) easily accomplishes the previously supposed impossible double somersault ; and to- gether with Messrs. Velettie & Smith preforms other most daring and dangerous evolutions on the horizantal bars, and over six and eight horses with an ease and grace most pleasing. Valetti's performance on the trapeze at a con- siderable height, balancing himself whilst mov- ing, while the sling is in rapid and excentric motion is of itself a wonder. The Arab Hadji Hamo as an athlete is unsurpassed by...

DAVID AND BUSH FIRES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WEST AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 4 May 1880

DA VID AND BUSH FIRES. To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir.-As an adviser upon subjects connected with country work, I do not think much of your correspondent " David," but I thank him for calling attention to the necessity for some fresh legislation with regard to bush fires. The best plan at present known for protecting our home- steads, and fences is by burning a strip of grass of a certain width. In this district this preparatory work must be done iii December, "but according to act of < Council, for so doing before February- we are liable, to a penalty of fifty pounds. This act ought to have been repealed long ago, and re- placed by something more in unison with our present requirements. For the systematic burn- ing !of old and useless runs, as suggested by " David," something more elaborate in the way. of legislation is required than for burning mere- ly for protective purposes, but what it should be,-1 am not now prepared to say. It is a matter' , of great im...

THE Mtsí australian. ViaiLANs ax Audax. PERTH, TUESDAY, MAY 4, 1880. WHAT IS A JINGO P This question, asked, and answered at length, in a recente English periodical, -is a particu- larly interesting one just now, when we have seen the last-probably for some time tocóme-of jingo poliey. For the presence of Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Bright, and Mr Chamberlain in the new Liberal Cabinet, will, if they contrive to make their views prevail, have the effect of infusing a deci- dedly anti-jingo spirit into the future ad- ministration of the great empire to which we belong. We are told that the foreign policy of the late Government was not the cause of their defeat, but there can be no doubt that difference of opinion as to the manner in which the responsibilities and obligations of our empire should be viewed, is at present the chief distinction between the English Liberal and Conservative parties. These terms Liberal and Conservative are now' misnomers ; the old-fashioned Conservative t Tory, as...

Country Letters. (From our own correspondents.) THE NORTH WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 4 May 1880

COUNTRY LETTERS. (From our own correspondents.) THE NORTH WEST. A correspondent from the North West writing under date, April 16th, says: " We   have had a flne fall of rain throughout the district, and the country is everywhere look- ing splendid. The sheep owners are antici- pating an excellent clip, but the lambing is not likely to be very good, in consequence of the breeding stock being in many instances too fat, as is usual after a good season. Mr. Julius Brockman, the pioneer settler of the Beagle Bay district is now in Roebourne, having travelled overland from his station, and returns the same way in a few days. A vessel just arrived from Beagle Bay, reports that all was proceeding satisfactorily at Mr. Brockman's station. The pearling season is now over. Amongst the most successful boats are the " Amy" (Mr. D. M'Rae), 22 tons, and the " Pearl," (Mr. J. Clarkson), 34 tons, (21 tons of which were taken in King Sound in the short space of 25 days). Altogether, the ...

OBSERVATIONS ON SELECTING AND TREATING JARRAH TIMBER FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian — 4 May 1880

OBSERVATIONS ON SELECTING AND TREATING JARRAH TIMBER FOR EXPORT. By V.S. The editor of the West Australian being anxi- ous to further the interests of the timber trade, and having asked me to give him the results of my experience in a form such as he could publish for general information, I have put to- gether the following observations with regard to selecting and treating jarrah for export, which although imperfect-as I have not been able to devote much time to their preparation -will I hope be of some little use. I am a thorough believer in the immense benefit which the colony must eventually de- rive from jarrah. Farming under existing con- ditions, until better means of communication are provided, will scarcely pay, and there is nothing in young, thickly populated countries, like making the most of their natural resources, and certainly jarrah can be made one great source of profit, if properly handled. Neither red rust, caterpillar, grasshopper, nor other ver- min attacks it, ...

(iïmtsyeûtm. .DAVID,' THE IMPROVEMENT OF JAM COUNTRY, AND THE LANDS ON THE FITZROY. To the Editor of the West Australia*. Sir,-As you are desirous that other settlers, having some experience, should contribute pa- pers of a similar character to those which have appeared from the pen of your correspondent David, I will endeavour to explain t my own views upon a few of the leading questions rela- tive to the improvement of lana, to agriculture and the land regulations. I think that fül practical men, who, as such,, must object to seeing their runs overgrown with timber, will agree with David that burn- ing is an absolute necessity for the prevention of fresh timber growth. But what is to be done with full grown timber which fire will not affect Y There is in my opinion only one method of dealing with such timber, a method, however, which may not be-I do not say i* not-in the power of any but capitalists to carry out, and that is, the process called 'ring-barking.' My recollection of t...

.DAVID' AND OUR EASTERN DISTRICTS, To the Editor of the West Australian. Sir,-Will you allow me space in your paper to make a few remarks on what ' David' says would be a benefit to the farmers in the Eastern Districts. First, I will begin with burning the bush. I say the law as it now stands cannot be better, and no one ought to be allowed to burn any grass or stubble before the first of April and not even theu without first giviug his ueighbour warning. I do not think the people would exert themselves in the way they do when a fire breaks out for the purpose of extinguishing it if they thought it would do any one good. I do not think there arc many wbohavc got much grass to spare for burning. What are the stock to live on if the grass ia all burnt iu February. There is a great deal of property destroyed every year as it is, aud if people were allowed to burn when they thought proper there would be tau times more. I think the law cannot be too strict as regards burning the bush. It...

I was in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Yorkshire, and Norfolk, stopping at farm houses and villages, and went among the men, showing myself, and explaining how much better they could do here than by remaining where they were. They would most of them express re- gret that they had not come out here, and an apparent wish to come ; and if I saw they were the kind of men I wanted, T told them at once that I could arrange for them to come. Then came the first hitch, they had none of them a penny to pay their railway expenses to London, and out...
