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

FREMANTLE TOWN TRUST. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, The public of Fremantle have;in my. opinion. sustained a great loss by .the death of tne late Mr. Caporn, who has for so many years .served the Town so faithfully and well in several capa cities. The question now arises as to the appointment of his successor,.more especially to the office of Clerk and Collector to the Town Trust, and as it would appear to be without doubt that Mr. Caporn was appointed in Public Meeting by the Inhabitants, it would seem thatthis is aprecedent which must of necessity be followed in the pres ent case. Public opinion however seems to be rather divided as to what coursewill really be adopted, some people stating that the appointment.vests solely in the hands of the Chairman, and has al ready been exercised by him ; others, and these the most numerous, urging that a meeting must .of necessity be held. Can you Mr. Editor set the mind of the rate payers at rest on this point, and inform us whether amee...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 29 February 1868

THE die is cast, and the Memorialists to the Legislative:Council in 1865 are called upon to come forward and renew their claim for a Representative Government not from the same council, but from one, the majority of Which are known to be favorable to the demand. That councilispartlycompose cl of the old official Nominees of the late, many of whom are known to be favorable to the increase of non-officialmembers as sought for~under the provisions of the Imperial Act of the 13th and 15th Vict. Others are indifferent, and some will no doubt. op pose as before any further concession, than that which was made in accordance with the amendment of Mr. John Hardy,. and to which on the recommendation of the, Governor, the Imperial Colonial Secretary obtained the sanction of the Crown. The opponents of Representative Go vernment admit through , their Organ, "that the meeting at Perth to promote the object of the Memorialists. of 1865 was both numerous and influential-that the. proceedings were ...

He held one of her hands in his, put his arm round her waist, and whispered something in her right ear.

THE STORY-TELLER. SORROW'S SHAMBLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

SOS EOWS SHAMBLES, '!When was Bethnal Green worthy ofita ~aae ? How loig a time is it since the verdure departed, to give place to the soot .gr.y that now reigns predominant.? Sor ,did- beggarly- wretched-ziiserable every adjective falls short of expressivqe ness as applied to the dwellings ofthat disiaal region. Surely the houses could never have been new; they nmust all have been built by swindling contractors or parcase schheiers, of second-hand building materials; frowsy bricks, nildewed mor tar ; beams with the dry rot, palsied posts, and planks; and painted with colours that blisterd as they were laid on, The very plaster seem leprous, and scales off in a way hideous to look upon; foul fungoid grwths, like fithy ulcers, start from damp corners, and in the abject filth, wretched ness, and desolation of the district there now seems to be something absolutely lefiant; and one almost expects to see .tep from every corner one of Victor 'Hugo's heroes of the " Cour des Mira .les."

WiI would gladly leave the vexed ques tion of Colonial: Government, as a continued state of Tutelage under the old form of an Executive Council with out any power, and of a Governor with out any check to be decided by the votes. of those 'who are entitled under certain conditions to claim the change. Accepting as we do the admission, 'that such a change is most desirable, and that at best the present form of Go vernment can only be tolerated so long, as the administrator of it is " an honest, conscientious, good man," we are aston ished at the perverseness of those who would have us,. under such an hypothesis, continue to bear patiently the rule of a succession of mediocrities, who with but one exception have commenced, and ended their official career in that branch of the 'service known as the colonial, by a five years irresponsible Government of this neglected and overlooked colony. Both our contemporaries are agreed "that a change in the constitution of the colony is essential to...

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. THE PRESENT TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. THE PRESENT TIMES. I've been knocki ' about a good bit lately down in Perth and Fremantle, and I've seen a good deal and heard more and 'pon my word I wouldn't a believed there was so many grumblers in the Colony if I hadn't a heard 'em with my own ears. There's a few of the Discon tents over the hills, but they aint nothin' to what there is in the City and Fre mantle. City-that sounds well, and gives a high degree of respectibility to everythin' connected with it, according to some. " I keeps the City Coffee Room," says a chap to me in Perth, " and that sir is a proof that they are respectable." " Un doubtedly," says I, I suppose the City bein' such a very partic,lar place, as wont allow a man to carry a bit of wood on his shoulder on the path, nor yet have skittles in the Public Houses, wouldn't let you call yourself that unless you was respectable-but the " City " don't'quite equal gilt in hidin' what's under'and so I don't think I'll patronise you'...

ublitc pinion. For the statement and opinions of our Corres pondents, we do not hold ourselves responszbe.l THE MURRAY. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, When I last addressed you, I had no idea of the wide dissatisfaction that existed relative to the removal of the Stock Yard at Stake Hill ; since, however, the subject has been publicly noticed, it has been the topic of conversation not only in this district but amongst all parties at Bunbury and the southward who send sheep and cattle to the butchers in Fremantle ; and I can not but help believing that the individuals who so selfishly caused its removal on to their own run, now see the false position they have placed themselves in with their fellow settlers. It is, I understand, proposed to raise a subscription for erecting another yard ; if so, it is to be hoped that those who caused the removal of the old one will not be backward in putting their names on the list for a decent sum. Reverting again to the supposed murder at this ...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR,- A day or two since I was wralking on the Fre mantle Bridge and was surprised to feel it shake' violently, the motion being caused by two little boys running across. In order to prevent accidents I think it would be as well for those whose duty it is to attend to Public Works to inspect the 'supports, as it is'only natural to suppose that if only a slight action will cause the Bridge to vibrate to a great degree, that the constant traffic of heavy conveyances will not tend to improve its safe ness. Asit is not desirable to'wait until the horse is out of the stable where life may be in jeo pardy, it is only I consider a public duty to call attention to any existing danger. The importance of this matter will I trust be a sufficient excuse for my troubling you to in sert these few lines. I am Sir, Yours Respectfully, CAUTION. Fremantle, March 5th, 1868.

MARKET FOR HORSES. To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, It may have escaped the notice of some of our enterprising men that most of the horses and mules sent to the Abyssinian Expedition have been carried off by disease. Might not a good market be found at Ansley Bay, or Aden, or even with the authorities at Bombay for some of the superfluous horses and strong ponies of this Colony P If so, no time ought to be lost, such at least is the opinion of A LOOKER ON.

A GEOLOGICAL LEGEND IN INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

A GEOLOGICAL LEGEND IN INDIA. The following somewhat interesting legend is, perhaps, more generally current amongst the Mohammedan than amongst the Hindu populace. It is, however, curious, inasmuch as it appears to prove that the changes which geology teaches us have taken place on. the earth's surface have not escaped the observa tion of people so comparatively ignorant and unrefined as the village sages of India. In the golden age when men spoke the truth, there *as one sage so much better than all other men, even as men then were, that he was an especial favourite of heaven. Tired of the petty cares and follies of mankind, he retired from the great city in which he had dwelt before, and lived alone, far from other men for ages, in the practice of contemplation and the study of God. When ages hadothus rolled away, he bethought him once to return to his native city, and see what had become of it. He did so. When he drew near the site of the great city, lo ! it was gone, and a beaut...

To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I have read with much attention your articles from timo to time on the all absorbing question of Representative Government. I am quite of your opinion that the time is come when to postpone the consideration of it will be an act of Political Suicide. The Government as at present constituted is in a torpid state, and no one connected with it officially seems disposed to do more than what is actually required of him, the consequence is, that onr neighbors fully alive to the necessity of more room are seeking new countries in all di rections, Ihave just been reading a most inter esting account of his explorations by Captain Cadell on the part of the South Australian Go vernment, which opens out an immense extent of New Country, (visited too in the dry season,) well watered, and with large rivers, many of them navigable for several miles into the inter ior, and adjoining our own boundaries on the extreme North Coast. I draw attention to this interesting...

Odds and Ends. PRESERVED MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 7 March 1868

PRESERVED MEAT. The question of how to preserve the surplus of Australian meat for exportation, has recently engaged a large share of attention. The low prices of beef and mutton and the high prices ruling in England, form the undoubted basis on which the new movement has been started. Years since boiling-down for tallow seemed to wise men the only escape from the increase of too numerous flocks and herds, vendible only at unpaying prices; but it is now seen that there is a more profitable mode of dealing with the carcase. A number of actual experiments were conducted and shown by Mr. S. S. Ritchie, a gentleman long connected with the .preserved:meat trade in London. These ex periments and their results were tested, ap proved, and verified by a large number of those interested in supporting a successful system of meat-preserving. ?Mr. J. B. Hughes a gentle man connected with a large company of Vic toria has received in addition to a sensible letterfrom:the Prince one from Mr. Bradbr...

To the Editor of The Herald. SIR, I am but a plain man, and like to see things called by their right names, and do think that gentlemen who profess to be better informed than us plain folk, should condescend to tell us what they think right for us to know in a plain way I yhink those ,who charge others with "ig norance and twisting" should themselves be 'well .acquainted with the subjects they write about, and not expend all their cleverness in trying to mystify everything by high sounding words, stolen from some of the flighty writers of the day. I want something original, or if bor rowed, something that will be of use to me something practical, I don't object to its being told in a humourous style, and I always have before me some acquaintance not very far off from where Mr. Chips gets his photograms.
