Country News. ALBANY, (March 30th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

C-írititírg Pitos. ALBANY, (March 30th.) The result of the cricket match between Albany and Kojonup, and of the Plantagenet race meeting has been made known in the capi- tal by telegram. It is many years since there has been so large a gathering in town iroin all parts of the district. The races were certainly worthy of the interest which they excited, and cot up in very much better style than has latterly »een the case, while the sobriety and good con- duct of the numerous spectators who in carri- ages, carts, bullock drays and on foot assembled to enjoy a days picnic on the course was most commendable. There is very little fresh news to communi- cate with regard to the doings of the Standard Gold Mining Company. The mining manager and his men are steadily at work, preparing for the erection of the machinery, and sinking a ehait. There has been some vexatious delay in procuring the timber required, but the direc- tors I believe hope to see the battery ready for work in little more ...

THE JUDGES ON THE LASH FOR CRIMES OF VIOLENCE. (Manchester Guardian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

THE JUDGES Olí THE LASH FOß CKIMES OF VIOLENCE. (Manchester Guardian.) In proposing the lash as a punisnmeui, for brutal assaults, Mr. Gross will find his task enormously simplified by the^ course he has taken in consulting the judges, courts of quarter sessions, borough magi- strates, and chief constables on the sub ject. He Las now a weigbt of authority on his side which we should suppose it will be hopeless to attempt to resist. An unanimous opinion in favour of flogging was not to be expected, but unanimity has been very nearly approached ; and it must be remembered that the Home Secretary's circular was distributed through Scotland as well as England. The judges of the Court of Queen's Bench are, without a single exception, favourable to an extension of this kind of punishment. The Lord Chief Justice, Mr. Justice Lush, and Mr. Justice Quain bear emphatic testimony to the deterrent influence of the cat, and their judgment in the matter will bo allowed to possess some value, even...

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

Correspondence. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES, SIR,-When people write to correct statements they should -be especially careful that their would be corrections are really corrections-True " all men who can see an inch before them may easily detect gross fallacies," but it seems from ' Figures and Facts' Letter in to-day's Inquirer that some men can detect such fallacies when they do not exist. Sir Thomas Campbell said, " out of 10,761 adult males 6803 were returned as free according to the census last taken," and he estimated that " there are now 14,000 adult males of whom about 10,000 would be free." Sir Thomas did not say " males over 21 years of age" but simply 'adult males.*' According to statistical usage I believe all males above 14 years of age are considered adults. Ac- cording to emigration calculations all above 12 years I think are deemed so, and according to my dictionary", " an adult is a person grown up past the age of infancy." Such being the case I fear that " Figu...

HOLLOWAYS PILLS-J Late 244 Strand. 533, Otford Street, W.C. SIE,-I take leave to inform you that Messrs.

They have also sent me a Box of the pills which are spurious imitations of mine. My medi- cines are neither made nor sold in any part of the "United States.

This is false, as I neither know the man nor have I had correspondence with him.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-Can you inform me if our Magistrates or J.P.'s have ever received any instructions from the Authorities to enforce .. The Vagrant Act." It is evidently ' not brought into force here, by the number of loungers about the Town, and i S is no use the Police locking them up. It is common here to see men knock- ing about the public houses for two and three months, without doing a days work, and if taken before our J.P.'s let off with a small fine. Yesterday, I certainly was amused in our Court, a person had his teamster locked up tor leaving his horses on Saturday evening, and not returning to them until Sunday afternoon, then quite drunk, and using most filthy language. For this our clever Magistrates sentenced the offender to one months imprisonment, 1 then thought of course the case was done with, in fact I never knew before that a J.P. had any power to mitigate any sentence once passed; but in this case the prosecutor had scarcely left the Court ...

BENEFIT SOIETIES [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

BENEFir SOIETIES I i The Standard (Feb. 9) says the aim of the Government in remodelling their Bill has been to combine a much-needed reform in the inter- est of the working classes with as little State interference as possible. These societies are purely the creation of working-class enterprise. They are the outcome of industrial thrift. The State and the Legislature and public charity have had nothing to do with them. Henee, as the Chancellor of the Exchequer pointed out, it is highly desirable that, in checking the abuses which have grown up with them, every care should be taken to preserve their distinctive character as independent working-classes organisations, and to carry the assent of that class in the reforms which are found to be necessary. The aim of the Government, there foie, is not to subject them to a rigorous State supervision, but to enable the members to look after their interests more effectually. Their Bill seeks to accomplish this by improving the system of regi...

GARIBALDI'S PATRIOTIC CONDUCT AT ROME. (La Republique Francaise.) [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

GARIBALDI'S PATRIOTIC CON DUCT AT ROME. (La République Française.) All the journals of Europe have been dwelling upon General Garibaldi's recent interview with King Victor Emmanuel at Rome. What apprehensions were entertained concerning Garibaldi's pro- jects, when he left Caprera and went to Rome to fulfil the mandate of a deputy which had been entrusted to him by a faubourg of Rome regarded as the hot- bed of the most arde tit passions ! It was said that legal order was about to perish, that revolution would soon be let loose, and that the Savoy dynasty was approach- ing the end of its power. In this langu- age it is easy to recognise the declama- tions of the Ultramontane party. What has happened ? General Garabaldi, who entered Rome for the first time since 1849, when he was exiled from Italy, was received by the people with transports of joy and enthusiasm. His first words re- commended calmness and moderation. Two days after his arrival he took his seat on the benches of the E...

W. Howard. The annual race meeting in connection with the Albany Jockey Club, was well attended, and everything passed off in a most satisfactory manner. Country visitors were more numerous this year than on any previous occasion, and more than usual interest was displayed, in consequ- ence of several fresh horses having been entered for the coming events. A desire on the part of the members to prove the races interesting to all, appeared to have the wished for result. However, it must be admitted that some of the events were anything hut well contested, hut I may say that for sleepy hollow, they were not so had.

A ROYAL MAIL STEAMER ON FIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

AJ&ÖYAL MAIL STEAMER 03* FIRE. The Royal Mail Steam Packet Company's steamship the Nile, Captain Revett, left South- ampton on the afternoon of the 17th of Decem- ber, having on board 88 passengers and a crew of 119 hands ali told. Among the passengers were Captain Wells, Commander Fane, and Staff-Commander Watts, of Her Majesty's ship the Bellerophon, with three junior officers and four seamen belonging to the same vessel. The voyage from Southampton to the West Indies by the filie steamers of this line is too well known to need any description. The service has for many years pasb been conducted with such remarkable punctuality and safety as to have been almost wholly devoid of unpleasant inci- dents. The memory of the awful catastrophe of the Amazon has been almost effaced by years of continuous and uninterrupted success. The Kile was, however, destined to have a more eventful voyage than usual. After experiencing unusually fine weather for such a time of the year, the Nil...

LOSS OF THE " GOTHENBERG." [Newspaper Article] — The Western Australian Times — 9 April 1875

LOSS OF THE " GOTHENBERG." As the loss of the Gothenberg has been a common topic of conversation since it has been known in the colony, we think a brief account of the circum- stances attending it may not be unac- ceptable to our readers ; and to it we append the relation of the skill, courage, and presence of mind by which the R.M.S. Nile, her passengers and crew were saved from fire, to show what may be done by the possession and exercise of these virtues, combined with exact dici- pline, under the most unfavorable circum- stances, and the necessity there is for great carefulness in the selection of those to whom the care of passenger ships is committed. The Gothenberg was built for the Rot- terdam trade iu 1855, of iron, with four bulkheads, and classed AI for 12   years, she was then called the Celt ; in 1862, she was registered in Melbourne for the Australian trade, her capacity then being 456 tons. She was a favour- ite boat, though not a fast one, and her captain...
