Our Back Parlour. No. VII. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Our Back Parlour. No. VII. IN consequence of the recent appoint- ment of MR. WOBBLES to the important and lucrative post of Port Admiral of the Port of Perth, and the neighbouring harbours of Windmill Point and Suther- land Bay, that honourable gentleman most honourably resolved to entertain his friends at a Fête Champêtre on the banks of Melville Water. Accordingly, one day last week, at an early hour, the distinguished party assembled in Our Back Parlour, which was the place of rendezvous, and were welcomed by Mr. Wobbles, with his accustomed urbanity, in white Berlin gloves and a new straw hat. The procession was headed by a detachment of Printer's Imps, with their hands and faces washed for the occasion, after whom followed Mr. Myth, with   Miss Crump, in an attitude of interesting   languor and a blue and white parasol, hanging upon his arm. Mr. Wobbles, bearing heavily upon the excited Sprouts, brought up the rear. No sooner had these august personage...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1863. GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

West Australian Times.   DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1863. GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENTS. WE should feel exceedingly obliged to any one who would inform us upon what principle Government appointments are made in this Colony ? Our own theory upon the subject is no doubt entirely erroneous, for, not being admitted behind the scenes, we can only make the very roughest " Guesses at Truth." To our unsophisticated apprehension, the prin- ciple seems to be that so much admired by good housewives, called the Saving, or close-shaving, system. The merito- rious object of the most penny-wise statesmen in the Empire seems to be to get the job, whatever it may be, done in the cheapest possible manner. It is not at all inconsistent with this principle to squander thousands upon useless or frivolous works, provided you can relieve the official conscience by saving a few shillings when opportunity offers. Great was the overflow of self-gratulation and ...

Toodyay. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Toodyay. His Excellency the Governor having ex- pressed his intention of visiting Toodyay at the Annual Show, a party of settlers, about 25 in number, rode out to meet him on Saturday, the 31st October, the day named for His Excel- lency's arrival. Punctual to the appointed time, His Excellency reached the finger-post near Newcastle at 1 o'clock, at which place the Set- tlers were waiting for him. The Resident Ma- gistrate, in the name of the Settlers, addressed a few words of greeting to His Excellency and Mrs. Hampton, expressing their pleasure in receiving a visit from them. The Governor briefly replied, saying how gratified he felt by this hearty welcome, and that the disappoint- ment he experienced last year was fully made up by the pleasure he now enjoyed. Three cheers were then given by the equestrians, and the party proceeded to Newcastle. On Sunday, His Excellency and Mrs. Hamp- ton attended Divine Service, morning and even- ing, at Newcastle Church. On Monday, the Governor...

Latest Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Latest Intelligence. THE English Mail has not yet arrived (Wednesday, 8 p.m.), but that from the Eastern Colonies reached Perth at 6 p.m. The news it brings is not of much in- terest. We give the following extracts from the local journals: SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The third meeting of the South Australian Rifle Association has taken place. There was some excellent firing at long ranges. A Bill has passed the Assembly for raising £35,000 on debentures in the colony. The loan is to be for one year, and at an interest of 5 per cent. The Assembly have also passed a Bill for paying annually a sum not exceeding £6,880 for the services of regular troops.

Notices of Recent Works. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Notices of Recent Works. Horse-racing; its History and early records. As we have no space for Criticism, we will merely observe that this is a work of much interest and research. We give an extract showing the uncertainty of a horse-race, and may in a future number add a few others. " In the year 1855, a race was run at Good- wood, in which there was something remark- able in the proceedings and result of it. The race we allude to was for the King's Guineas, for which two only started, viz., Lucifer and Rockingham, the latter horse having won, al- most in a canter, the Cup on the previous day. Three other horses were also weighed for; and although none of them actually started, this circumstance, as also the uncertainty that ex- isted whether Rockingham would start or not, even almost up to the last moment, caused considerable fluctuation in the betting - the odds at one moment being laid against five animals, and then shifting and only quoted against two. Rockingham and Lucifer, ho...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

The Open Column To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES.     SIR,-The letter which appeared in your Contemporary of Friday last, signed " A Volunteer," is certainly an amusing piece of nonsense. The Volunteer movement, it is true,   may be calculated to do a considerable amount of good, in engendering an entente cordiale among the various classes in our community, yet who but a man with the determination and valour of a Don Quixote could pen such twaddle as the following : "It is pretty evident that the Volunteer system has taken firm root amongst us, and that it will continue to grow and flourish, more especially as in a short time it may be prudent to encourage and increase a force which may, ultimately, be called upon to assist in keeping order in the Colony. I do not, Sir, look upon the Volunteer movement as a gigantic game at play; it is a great and noble earnest fact, working out a purpose and aiming at an end, the results of which will prove mo...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE FAMILY PICTURE. [Concluded.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Our Chimney Book Tales for Country Readers. THE FAMILY PICTURE. [Concluded.] HENRI DE SOMMERVIEUX, for such was the name of the young artist, had given tokens of great genius in his art some years before, and, to improve him in his studies, he had been sent to Italy. Shortly before his attention was attracted to the family of Guillaume, he had returned from Rome, and was rapidly advancing to a high rank in his profession. The picture he was now engaged upon, and in which his feelings were so deeply im- plicated, tended to raise his reputation, and insure his fame. When finished, it was placed in a public exhibition, and, by universal consent, crowned as the master- piece of the season. It attracted around it immense crowds, and large sums were offered for its purchase, though always refused by the painter, who declared his intention not to part with it. Though all Paris rang with the fame of this pic- ture, so retired were the merchant's family, that for some time the original scene...

Northam. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863

Northam. THE Eace-meeting in this beautiful district went off with a degree of spirit and animation unparalleled in the annals of Western Aus- tralia. The day, with the exception of an occasional shower, could not have been more favourable, and, as a natural consequence, the course was crowded with the beauty and fashion of Nor- tham and the surrounding country. The following is an account of the running : MAIDEN PLATE, 1 mile and a distance ; heats : E. Wilson's ch. g. Publican, (Woolhouse) 1 1 Phillips & Co.'s b. m. Graceful, (Chitty) 2 2 T. Lockyer's b. g. Waverley, (Owner) ... 0 0 This race was a surprise, Publican making .the running, and winning both heats in good style. NORTHAM STAKES. H. Cook's b. g. Selim, aged, (J.

LONDON WOOL REPORT. SEPTEMBER 24, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

LONDON WOOL REPORT. SEPTEMBER 24,1863, SiNOE the close of the sales the few contracts made here have been chiefly for sorts, with the exception of the Cape, which has been bought from first hands to a moderate extent, to supply an order from the north of Europe. The market, however, is very Arm ; the brisk business quoted as doing in all the northern markets has imparted much confidence to hold era, who are indisposed to sell except at an ad- vance of Id. to lid. There is no speculative feeling whatever, and the stock of wool in first and second hands will be ample to last until the new clip. The actual arrivals are 45,000 bales, which, with old stock, and expected arrivals will make a closing sale for the year of about 75,000 to 80,000 bales. It is expected that the next sales will commence either on the 29th October or 5th November. Judging from the advices from Leeds, Hud- dersfield, and Bradford, there will be a good inquiry for all sorts, particularly middle to average descript...

TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

TRANSPORTATION. The question of Transportation continues to be discussed in England with unabated interest. It is beginning to be found out that there are two sides to it, and that the most judicious mode of treating it, with a view to a satisfactory settlement, is not to overlook on one side the just rights and claims of the other. We admit that the problem is complicated by many diffi- culties; but we shall at least get rid of some of them on the threshold of the inquiry if we grant to Eastern and Western Australia an equal right to judge for itself what is best for itself. One colony has, assuredly, as good a claim to be heard on its own business as another; and when a question arises which directly affects one colony, and only indirectly affects another, the claim to be heard cannot be reasonably said to be stronger in the latter than in the former. We are not here assuming any judgment on the question, but merely pointing out the necessity and the equity of treating it with tem...

ARRIVALS BY THE "TORONTO." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

ARRIVALS BY THE "TORONTO." WE extract the following paragraph from the South Australian Register, of Oct. 26 : HEARTLESS DESERTION.-We understand that a man named Saddler, who had been employed as a messenger at the Parliament House, has absconded from the colony under very disgrace- ful circumstances. It appears that Saddler contracted an intimacy with a female servant of Mr. Hines, the caterer, who warned her that her acquaintance was a married man. This did not appear, however, to end the intercourse between the parties, and some days ago the woman was discharged. About the same time Saddler made a pretext to his wife that he had received an appointment in the country, and must leave town for a few days to make neces- sary arrangements. Before the poor woman's suspicions were aroused, Saddler and his paramour sailed in the Toronto for the more congenial society of Fremantle, leaving his wife and six children all but destitute in Adelaide. Not only did the runagate take all his av...

GREAT RIFLE MATCH. AUSTRALIA v. ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

GREAT RIFLE MATCH. AUSTRALIA V. ENGLAND. This great international rifle match took place on the loth Sept., at the Sudbury rifle range, Derbyshire, the property of Lord Vernon. This match was the result of a challenge sent by Captain Macfarlane, of Milang, South Aus- tralia, whose company possessed the greatest number of marksmen in the colony in the year 1862, and the challenge was that 10 men of his company would shoot 10 of the company claim- ing similar honours in England. One of the conditions of the challenge was that each side should shoot at butts where they had not been accustomed to practise. Distances-200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, and 900 yards, seven rounds per man at each range-rifle, the long Enfield. Captain Mundella's company, the 1st Bobin Hoods (Nottingham), sent in a certifi- cated statement, which having been submitted to Captain M'Murdie, Captain Mundella was informed that his 10 were expected to compete with the colonial 10. The weather on the whole was fi...

®{jt êym Coforam. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-In reference to the paragraph contained in your impression of 5th instant, respecting the condition of our Institute, I beg to say that it is not in a languishing state. Mustering, as we do, upwards of 100 members, and having regular Monthly Lectures-besides which, there is a Lecture delivered, on every Monday evening, by members only, and on these evenings we frequently meet 30 or 40 strong-I think that, taking into consideration the infancy of our Institute, and the very small population of this town, that we contrast very favourably with any other Institution of this de- scription in the Colony; and although the subscriptions are not paid up so regularly as I would wish to see, yet we are not " in a languishing state."

FORTUNE COPPEB MINING COMPANY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. (From the Home News and Mining Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

FORTUNE COPPEB MINING COMPANY OP WESTERN AUSTRALIA. (From the Home News and Mining Jaurnal.) The First Annual General Meeting of Share- holders was held at the company's offices, Gracechurch-street, on the 16th of Sept.; Mr. Thomas Gooch in the chair. The notice convening the meeting having been read, the following abstract of the di- rectors' report was submitted : On the 22nd of December last they entered into a binding contract with the proprietors of the property for the purchase of the mines on the terms referred to in the prospectus, and in the circular of the 17th of December, 1862 ; and that up to the present time £8000 has been paddon account, in addition to the shares agreed upon. The completion of the contract has been retarded by delays in the office of the solicitor employed in the colony, but will be effected in due course.

Arrival of the Overland Mail. The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

Arrival of the Overland Mail. The English Mail Reached Perth at 6 a.m. on Friday morning, November 13. There is no news of eventful interest. The Polish question has entered a new phase. Russia has declared that she will not enter upon the amelioration of Po- land till the insurrection shall have been suppressed. Négociation is at an end, but nothing ulterior has been resolved on by the Powers. The Poles continue to prosecute the struggle in the face of difliculties which, to afl appearance, must soon overwhelm them, unless aid comes soon. The winter is likely to prove most fatal to them. The policy of Russia is clearly to destroy the revolution by protracting it over the winter. But it is to be hoped, in the interest of humanity, that some means will be found for bringing this ghastly contest to an end. It is rumoured in political circles that a new ground of interference may be opened by the three Powers, and that, although they may not" declare war as a necessary consequence of t...
