No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 22 February 1868

THAT the Victorian Legislature was right in acceding to the bill authorizing the Government to borrow three fmillions of money is clear from the: favor'able' terms on ; which it has been obtained, the biddings .exceeding the fixed minimum price.by nearly 10 p. c., so that in fact a 6 p: c. loan has been obtained at a frac tion over 51 per cent. The statement put forward. by theirAgent through the. Colo nial Organ'in London is worth referriing to, it justly observes :-With a revenue exceeding three millions sterling, her public debt falls short of nine millions, and this money is represented by railways and, othervaluable public works, which, if not directlyremunerative, are becoming so as the population andtrade of the country' 'increase. Other colonies require loans with which to make war against native races or to: cover an accumiulated .excess of: expenditure over revenue. Her bor rowings are of a much more thrifty kind, and so commend themselves the more to the lending public. T...

HOW WE SETTLED OUR RENT. (To be continued.) CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

HOW WE SETTLED OUR RENT. (To be continued.) CHAPTER L " What's the total ?" asked Frank. " Eighteen, eleven, four and a-half!' "Hang the half i" saidFrankpeevishly. " And the four also," I replied, Man talini-like. This conversation took place in our apart ments, Weeping Willow-street, Blooms bury. The gaslight streaming across from the bar of the Scarlet Hyena shone through the window, and partly lit up the room, investing the furniture with a sort of weird -like, supernatural attraction. We could not afford to buy a candle, and our land lady had positively refused to let us have any article, eatable or otherwise, until the aforesaid eighteen pounds, eleven shillings and fourpence-halfpeny was paid. The fact is Frank Christoper and I had come up to London expecting immediate em ployuient, he as a shorthand writer on the staff of some of the newspapers, and I well,, my last situation had been second violinist in the T.

THE STORY-TELLER. COQUETTE. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

TOYOR TELIT R. j'G·;iConcludedfrom ozlr last.) -?Bothhe and Mrs. Montague were ab Bent when they arrived. Aline rested in the drawing-room a few minutes, and then, leaving her husband to visit the stables, she hurried to her former apart ments, to hide in solitude the tide of sorrowing emotions which were agitating her heart, and, if possible, array her face in smiles long strangers to it, tomeet her beloved parents as much like her former self as could be. She opened the door hastily, and S entered her dressing-room. A sight met her gaze that transfixed her to the spot, harrowed up her very soul, and almost clhilled to death every weakening faculty. Oif a couch, supported by pillows, lay the - .pale, exhausted form of the dying Henry Dillon. Yes; poor, proud Aline, the dying Henry! S'He felt his life wasting, fast closing, and he implored and prevailed on his friend to allow him to breathe the last few days he yet had to live where so many of his happiest hours had been past-in Ali...

COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

S COMMERCIAL. We have very little alteration to record since our last. Indeed as we have before observed in such a small community as ours, trade remains very uniform, the markets varying but little from one month to another. All commercial transactions are on a very limited scale, and the demand for particular stocks has come to be so well understood that there is never such an ex cessive importation as to reduce prices to any extent, nor, such arin active and unexpected de mand as to create high rates. The commercia wheel revolves very uniformly, and if it has no other advantage it has this, that it holds out not inducement whatevt:r for speculation. Business generally during the month has suf fered a trifle perhaps from the amusements that have been going on, but the falling off has not been of any consequence, and no doubt will at once recover. We hear of no complaints just at present, but there is a feeling of uneasiness, and a general impression that hard times will be experie...

SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

S SOCIAL. Our community has been- more thanr. usually lively during the past month. The visit of H. M. S. Brisk and the Perth Races have afforded opportunities of indulgence to the pleasure seeking portioni of our population of which they have not failed to take advantage. On the morning of Monday, the 3rd instant, a vesselfwas seen steaming in from the north end of Rottnest. She was soon made out to be a ves sel of war, and to the surprise of the gazers she dropped anchor off the Island. Various were the conjectures hazarded as to her character, na tion, size and armament. She remained at the Island during the whole of Monday and Mlonday night without any communication being made to the Port either from the Island or the ship, causing a good deal of excitement and not a little alarm. On Tuesday morning she was ob served to get up steam, and make for the Road stead. Though the day was excessively hot a large number of the inhabitants assembled on the cliff witching her movements, an...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

To the Editor of 'The Berald. SIR, I have read the strangecomposition, the writer of which under the assumed name of "Barney O'Keefe," has immolated himself if a real per sonage and if a myth has caricatured himself and his countrymen with great point and humor. Unfortunately Mr. Editor, both these Types exist in every hole and corner of the Colony, and are both an injury and a nuisance. It has been well observed that the most dan gerous member of society is a half educated man, especially one who aspires to becomea public character, but unhappily, whether from temperament, or their Celtic origin the country menof Mr. O'Keefehavenotthe sense to remember that modesty is a most becoming attribute of real merit. But my business is with the deductions which follow from the dsscription given of himself by Mr, O'Keefe, who is in reality an average speci men of the class of Immigrants with which we are inundated periodically from the far famed Idrne of ancient, and the Emerald Island of mo...

To the Editor of The Herald. : SIR, Having observed a letter in one: of your columns headed the Murray. I beg to pass a few remarks on your Correspondents sentiments and opinions, respecting our little settlement and its requirements. Yo:ur Corirespondent very justly remarks the inconvenience which the settlers are put to by the removal of the stock-yard at Stake Hill. He .is. also right in stating that a. school is much required at Mandurah, and I also hold with him in saying that a stricter search ought to be made to recover the.body of James :Stan lan who is suppose.fWhave been murdered by his mate R. Russel, Ithinrik that as your Corres pondent states, if a few of our young enterpri zing Bushieh Were employed by .Government and sent in search of the body of thed rdissing man, they would soon have the satisfaction of knowing the truth of the whole aifair-and also. of seeing the culprit brought to justice, but in respCt of your Correspondents estimate of the wheat in this neighbou...

To the Editor of-The Herald. SIR, I send you copy of two Resolutions which I proposed to bring forward at the Meeting on -Friday last. They were seen by several of the gentlemen present and generally met approval, but I did not bring them forward because it was agreed that the matter before the Meeting should be confined as much as possible to the mere movement necessary for promoting a Represen tative Memorial. In noticing Mr. W. Burges's motion I did, however, read to the Meeting the first Resolution to show that I also held the opinion that the Government is not entitled to the confidence of the community, but I expressed no opinion whatever as to .tihe legality or other wise of the Governors' course in the removal of the old members of Council-my remarks had reference to the manner of the quasi-elections, Which, if not illegal, were at least highly incon sistent-either we are fit for legally constituted Representation, or; we are not fitted for the privi lege.. in any shape what...

SUMMARY. Herald Office, Saturday February 29. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

SUMMARY. Herald Ojice, Saturday 1F'ebruary 29. We cannot begin with the usual formal opening of " we resume our monthly Summary" the truth is that at this moment we are doubt ful how to act, the change from fixed dates to fluctuating ones has bewildered clearer heads than ours, and we have yet to learn who is bene fitted by the change in our postal arrangements. As far as this colony is concerned it has pro duced anything but a satisfactory feeling, in addition to the uncertainty of when we may expect two Mails, an additional expense is in curred, and no advantage gained, as our out going Mails are despatched before the arrival of the incoming, and at this present moment instead of one we have two postal despatches to, and arrivals from the Sound. We read that the arrangement is equally unsatisfactory to our neighbours, but as it does not involve them in muc hincreased expen diture, we, the Colonists of Western Austra-. lia have the most reason to complain. Happily this colony enjoy...

SCRAPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

SCRAPS. HINTS FOR GARDNERS.-A- summer-house is a pleasant object in a garden, but its roof should be raised on posts and not cater-pillars. The vegetable marrow is not as suited for the manu facture of pomade as animal marrow. Vines will grow admirably on a railway embankment because they are sure to be well trained. Peas are like rigs, for you must sticks 'em before you can hope to eat 'em. AN Onvious RESUtLT.-A Lady travelling in one of the open trucks on the Echuca railway the other day, was set on fire by a spark falling on her dress. The fire was promptly put out by the guard, but the lady, appears, was not at all put out, at which the Bendigo Advertiser some what marvels, forgetting that the lady's dress was probably worn with the express design of attracting sparks. R! THAT's IT !--By general consent: it has been determined, in future, to describe the Ja macia negro as "a man and a brother," instead of "a man and a brother.
