WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. THERE is undeniably something in the constitution of our colony that requires a good deal of doctoring. Stunted in its growth from early infancy, it is almost the smallest as well as the least inter- esting of the Imperial bantlings. Torpid as an obstinate malady, it continues in- sensible to the skilful treatment of the most scientific physicians and metaphy- sicians, both here and at home. No remedies succeed in quickening its development. Her Majesty's Secretaries of State for the Colonies, for some years past, have successively taken it in hand ; and in the hope of making it useful to the Mother Country as an outlet for crime, have shown the tenderest interest in its welfare. Talented and praise- worthy Governors have annually an- nounced to their admiring Council, that the progress of the colony, since the date of the last Legislative Assembly, has filled them with satisfaction for the past and hope for the future. Colonial Secre- taries have invariably, at t...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

TO CORRESPONDENTS. We shall always be much obliged to correspondents who will send us any authentic intelligence. As for long-winded essays upon any subject (of which we have already received several good speci- mens) articles in this style are the peculiar pro- vince of the Editorial Staff, who alone are privileged to be dull and prolix. Our friends, when they address us, are requested to be invariably witty, terse, and sprightly. X. Y. is informed that the subject to which he alludes is under consideration, where we hope he will allow it to remain for the present. MARTIN SCRIBLEBUS must mend his pen and his hand-writing before we can undertake to decipher his orthography. A POOR MAN complains that a Resident Magistrate has decided unjustly. One half of the litigants in every Court make the same complaint. We must look into the cause of this, but meanwhile recommend him to try again. " A FOOTMAN " kindly offers, for a dozen postage stamps, to furnish us with daily reports of his Ex...

Miscellaneous News. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

Miscollaneous NEWS. THE QUEEN.-Her Majesty was to go abroad for a short time early in August. Her Majesty would travel incog, under the same title of Duchess of Lancaster as upon the last occasion, and would maintain the strictest privacy. Her Majesty, after paying a visit of a day to the King of the Belgians, would proceed direct to the Castle of Bosenau, near Coburg, the birthplace of the Prince Consort, which the Duke of Coburg had placed at her Majesty's disposal. The Queen's stay abroad would be about four weeks. THE QUEEN'S RELIGIOUS VIEWS.-The Patriot says :-" Royalty, both in the elder and younger branches, decidedly patronises the Broad Church school." THE PRINCE OP WALES'S HUNTERS.-It is said that his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales has sold both the hunters he bought at the Quorn sale at the same price he gave for them ; Bentinck goes to Mr. Chaplain and the Eight Man to a foreign nobleman. THE visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales to Dunrobin Castle is postponed t...

Our Back Parlour. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

Our Back Parlour No. I. As this is a literary as well as a political Journal, intended for the instruction, edification, and amusement of all classes, we purpose, should it chime in with the humour of our readers, to admit them occasionally into more confidential inter- course than is usual in the economy of newspapers. We fancy that in OUR BACK PARLOUR we can discuss some of the topics of the day more pleasantly and familiarly than in a formal leading article. With this view we flatter ourselves we have done the handsome thing by our Deputy-Sub-Editor, MR. S. MYTH, in giving him the run of that apartment on Saturday evenings, with full permission to indulge his loquacious propensities in the entertainment of his personal ad- mirers. Last Saturday evening at 11h. 45m. p.m. our Deputy-Sub. held his first public reception for the season. It was at- tended by MR. WOBBLES and MISS CRUMP, who were ceremoniously intro- duced by one of the staff of Printer's Demons, and received by Mr Depu...

Our Chimney Book. Tales for Country Readers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich Zschokke.) CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

The Chimney Book Tales for Country Readers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich Zshokke.) CHAPTER I. MOTHER KATE, the watchman's wife, at nine o'clock on New Year's Eve, opened her little window, and put out her head into the night air. The snow was red- dened by the light from the window, as it fell in silent heavy flakes upon the street. She observed the crowds of happy people hurrying to and fro from the brilliantly-lighted shops with pre- sents, or pouring out of the various inns and coffee-houses, and going to the dances and other entertainments, with which the new year is married to the old in joy and pleasure. But when a few cold flakes had alighted on her nose she drew back her head, closed the window, and said to her husband, " Gotlieb, stay at home, and let Philip watch for thee to-night, for the snow comes as fast as it can from heaven, and thou knowest the cold does thy old bones no good. There seems dancing and feasting in every house, masquerad...

THE CONVICT QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

THE CONVICT QUESTION. THE great fact which gives this Colony any degree of importance in the eyes of the Home Government is TRANSPORTA- TION. Like a useless younger son who for many years was only a thorn in the side of his family, but all at once has   become a man of business, ready to do their dirty work, we have suddenly found favour in the eyes of our respected parent. So long as we can be made of the smallest use we shall be petted and pampered with those delicacies which are not good enough for our betters. We have, however, so long been in the pre- dicament of those who are forbidden by grave moralists to be choosers, that, like sensible dogs, we wag our tails and snap our jaws at whatever scraps are thrown to us. There is no doubt that the intro- duction of Convicts into any Colony is a great evil. So is the weekly absorption of a bushel of Holloway's Pills by a hypochondriac patient, who yet fancies that he cannot prolong his existence without the jalap and pa...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

York. THE weather for the last few weeks has been most genial and conducive to the growth of the crops. The corn fields present a most promising aspect, and, under Providence, we may expect to reap a bountiful harvest, which will com- pensate for the failure of last year. It must be rembered, however, that all grain crops in this district depend upon the latter rains, which, in good seasons, fall in October and November. The farmers are now busy shearing their flocks, and a good supply of wool may be expected, the scab not having been so generally troublesome as last year. Efforts have been made in the district to raise the tobacco plant, and in many instances with success. The success of the lambing, in comparison with the two former years, has been such as to raise the spirits of the settlers; on an average,   the losses not amounting to more than 5 per cent. The recent change with regard to the Resi- dent and Magistrates appear to be tolerably satisfactory, although ...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

West Australian Times Discite Justitiam, Moniti. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1863. THE first number of a new weekly jour- nal is now presented to the colonists of Western Australia. It comes forward with the purpose of advocating their interests with fidelity and zeal ; in doing which it will not become the partizan of any single class, but will endeavour to view every question that is mooted in the broadest light, with reference to the weal of the community at large. Our sympathies are with the Settlers,but we have had sufficient experience of life to   know that many an object which excites most eagerly the wishes of the hour is not the best calculated to ensure perma- nent good. We have no doubt, there- fore, that we shall often be found at variance with our best friends, and shall cause them some occasional disappoint- ment. For this we are prepared ; but we have so strong a conviction of our own honesty of purpose, that we believe even those most opposed...

Guildford. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 October 1863

Guildford CRICKET.-A Cricket Match came off at Guildford on Friday, the 25th September, between Eleven of the Perth and Eleven of the Guildford Cricket Clubs. We give the particu- lars below. The day was remarkably fine, and there was a large attendance of spectators, who, from their plaudits at a good hit or a successful stroke of fielding, appeared to enter thoroughly into the spirit of the game. The wickets were pitched at half past 10, on the ground which has lately been prepared in the square. The two first innings having been brought to a close, the players adjourned at 2 o'clock to a first-rate lunch, provided on the ground by Mr. Herbert, of the Stirling Arms Hotel, who maintained his well-earned reputation as a successful caterer. After lunch play was resumed, and was kept up with great spirit until about half past 4, when the last wicket fell. The play on both sides was very steady, and although the result shows unfavourably for the Guildford Eleven, yet, had it not been f...
