Correspondence. THE PENSIONER FORCE AND THE INQUIRER. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

Correspondence THE PENSIONER FORCE AND THE INQUIRER. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,-Though much has been said and writ- ten of late relative to the condition and future prospects of the Enrolled Pensioners in this Colony, yet after all nothing really practical or beneficial has resulted therefrom. Men with more than the usual amount of disinterested- ness than is to be met with in the world, have from time to time pointed out, through the medium of the public journals, the pitiable condition of these men as a body, yet a semi- official rejoinder, or a specious explanation by some interested "red-tape official," or the pub- lication of some elaborate statistical tables have, unfortunately, in almost every instance, been sufficient to silence the writer, to stifle inquiry, and what is more to be regretted, to satisfy the public. On my part, however, I can say without the slightest egotism, that I have not, as the say- ing is, " rushed into print hurried...

NORTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

NORTHAM. The now annual festivities at this township took place on Monday and Tuesday, last week. On the first day took place the bazaar in aid of the funds for purchasing an harmonium for Katrine Church, and which succeeded even be- yond the hopes of its projectors ; the visitors were very numerous, and the amount taken was about £25. The match between the York and Northam Cricket Clubs came off on the Northam ground on October 31. The day was remarkably pleasant, and the players appeared in high spirits. Northam side went in fiist, and made a good score-winning in one innings, with two runs to spare. The following is the score : NORTHAM.-1st Innings. W. Foster, Sen., b Massingham. ... ... 32 C.

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

FBEMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) My last was dated from here on the morning of the 10th instant, so I will take up the thread of my correspondence from the afternoon of the same day, and I cannot I think, do better than show a bold front by bringing the Volunteers first into the field, or rather on the parade ground, for it was there they assembled iii the afternoon for a general parade. Our Company have been unusually active during the last few days, Friday saw them again under arms, on Sunday a church parade, and on Monday and Tuesday the commanding officer's orders were " meet me by moonlight." A concert was held the same evening, at the Assembly Booms, where the "Fremantle Harmonic Society" ex- cited the risible faculties of their audience by their comical performances. The troupe again appeared before the public upon the following evening, and it is but just to add, that upon both occasions the singing and nigger characters were an improvement upon their former efforts....

THE WINE LICENSE IN THE COUNTRY [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

THE WINE LICENSE IN THE COUNTRY I say, Jim, I'm for a spree. Jim-I'd haye no objection, but I'm drawn up. I swamped all I had coming, in York ; the week before last I went in with £6, and it was all up the spout next morning; I had. to borrow a shilling to get my bitters. Jack-More fool you ; you might have had a buster at - for as many shillings, of real good colonial wine. Jim-Ah, yes, I know I could have got wine at a shilling a bottle, but then I must either have sat down and sucked it out of the bottles by myself, or have carried it home-and then the Gaffer would have kicked up a row. Jack-Not a bit of it ; I see you are not up to the dodge : you get ten bob from the master, I've a pound, and come along with me, I'll show you how we manage it at the cheap swipes shop. Jim-Come along, Jack,'I've got the ready money to pay for my dog license-I can use that; I don't suppose the police will trouble me; I'm in the York district, and they are pretty good chaps; it's only a few as the...

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

9*tt{[ ê^ûiz tf m. f . ©im**. Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Sliakspeare. There is a general impression abroad in this colony that Transportation must cease, so fardas we are concerned, in the course of four or five years. Its cessation, whenever it takes place, will not be owing to the views expressed by those parties who asked the Home Government to give us something in lieu of that doubtful blessing, but partly to the unabated op- position of the other Colonies, and still more to the conviction which is growing upon the public mind, that convicts can only be absorbed by a large and flourish- ing free population ; and that unless this be the case the cost of protection must soon become a grievous burthen to a small and struggling community. We are all of us unanimous in wishing for a continuance of the benefits arising from the system, and we need not say that we shall be greatly concerned whenever the colony loses...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

FRANCE. The position of affairs in Algeria continues serious ; fears are entertained of the defection of the native troops, and further reinforcements are under orders for the colony. ITALY. It is alleged that a convention has been signed between the Emperor of the French and the King of Italy, providing for the withdrawal of French troops from the capital of the Pope. The principal points of convention are that the French force shall be gradually withdrawn from Rome, so that the occupation may entirely cease before the expiration of two years ; that King Victor Emmanuel shall undertake to pre- serve inviolate the possessions of the Church as at present defined, and guarantee not to coun- tenance or assist the machinations of what is termed the "party of action" in Italy, and that the capital of the kingdom shall be re- moved from Turin to Florence.-No sooner had the knowledge of this convention having taken place become known in Turin, than the popu- lace, irritated at the idea of ...

JAPAN AND CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

JAPAN AND CHINA. We have already alluded to the proba- bility of active measures being taken to open up the Inland Sea of Japan, which is one of the highways of commerce in Eastern waters. Some few years ago this sea was made use of by vessels of different countries, on account of the facility it afforded for communication be- tween Nagasaki and Yokohama. The western entrance to the sea of Japan is guarded by the Straits of Shimonosaki, which are so narrow that any vessel pass- ing through them is liable to be success- fully fired upon from either side. It is now more than a year since the experi- ment was actually tried ; and it will be remembered that, in retaliation, various vessels of war went to the place and tem- porarily silenced the batteries. Since' that time the dispute has remained in abeyance ; but the interval has been em- ployed in considering the best means of settling it. The Tycoon of Japan, who seems to be alternately powerful and powerless, could in this case affo...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. « ra AccoEDiNG to previous announcement» a public meeting of the City Band of Hope-was held in the Museum adjoining the Mechanics* Hall on Monday evening last, at which the Lord Bishop of Perth delivered an address on Temperance to a crowded audience. The meeting was opened by singing a Temperance Melody and prayer, after which he gave a very able address, in which he recommended that something should be done to extend the cause, and give it a permanent foundation. He spoke highly against the custom in vogue in this Co lony of allowing publicans to open their houses on the Sabbath ; Acts had been passed in other parts of the world suppressing their doing so, and why not here?-Other members of the Band also addressed the meeting, which passed off in as satisfactory a manner as could De de desired.-We are glad to learn that the books of the Society shew a continued increase in the number of its members. The movement has evidently done good, it is doing good, and ...

THE GEOLOGY OF THE NORTH-WEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

THE GEOLOGY OF THE NORTH-WEST. The following report from the Rev. W. B Clarke, the eminent geologist, upon some specimens collected at Cambden Harbor, Roe- buck Bay, and the Harding River, we have re- ceived from that gentleman, who has been kind enough to give himself a vast amount of trouble to furnish this colony, with such information upon the mineral products of the new country, as could be gleaned from the few specimens we have by the explorers been enabled to forward to him. Those from the Harding River were collected by Mr. S. Hall. SPECIMENS FROM HARDING RIVER. 1.-Calcareous breccia of igneous detritus and altered rock, cemented by lime holding nests of mica and abundance of yellow bi-sul phuret of iron (very like a rock on the Peel River, N.S.W., and in the alluvia of the Lach- lan at Forbes) this rock would seem to indicate the occurrence of slate and limestone broken   up and reconcreted by the agency of trap. 2.-Fine hardened variety of the same class, char...

QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

ly QUEENSLAND.. Private letters from Queensland report considerable excitement among stock owners and others, to have been created by the accounts received of our late dis- coveries on the north-west coast ; to such an extent was this the case that the Go- vernment, in order to, if possible, coun- teract upon any disposition in their peo- ple to try their fortunes in the far west, thought it advisable to alter their Land Eegulations. A new Act promises re- mission in the purchase of land of «£30, for every immigrant paying his own pas- sage to the Colony from England, and of half that amount to every assisted emi- grant ; but we are not aware whether the squatting regulations have been altered to meet the emergency. In the Brisbane Ctmrier of September 24, we find the fol- lowing account of the new country : " The new territory in course of occu- pation by the Western Australians is de- scribed- in such enthusiastic terms by those who have recently examined it, that nothing but seve...

THE ALBANY ANTI-TRANSPORTATIONISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 November 1864

THE ALBANY ANTI-TRANSPOB TATIONISTS. We learn from an Albany correspondent that a numerously-signed anti-transportation memo- rial from the inhabitants of the district has been forwarded by this mail to head-quarters, in which there is a very strong expression of feeling on this subject-it being the wish of the memorialists that there should be an im- mediate cessation of the present system. It is reported that the Governor is so anxious to re- lieve the memorialists from the evils they represent themselves as considering to arise from the presence of convicts among them, that he has given directions to withdraw all convicts from Albany, and that in future no passes to that town are to be granted by any Police or Resident Magistrate ; it is to be hoped this con- cession to their opinions will be received with grateful appreciation by the dwellers in Albany. Since the above was in type, we have been favored with a copy of the following letter ad- dressed by the Government to the Chai...

The Daylight was entered inwards on Monday, the 31st nit., ten clear days ago, and still the daily complaints from the mate are, that marks " so and so " are in the way, and no sufferance sent off for them-that he cannot get on with the discharge as rapidly as he wishes, until such and such packages are cleared ; and of course the crew, instead of getting the said packages over the side into a lighter, have to lose time by moving them out of the way-knocking them about from stem to stern (as sailors say) over and over again.

INDIA. From Calcutta we have papers to the   15th October; they are filled with the   melancholy accounts of the devastation   caused by a severe storm on the 5th Oct.,   and which left the "city of palaces"   almost a city of ruins, besides the de-   struction of most of the shipping in the river, and on the coast, as well as the ruin of a larger number of native villages and an appalling loss of life, estimated by some as high as 5,000, which perhaps will be largely increased by the famine and pestilence, which in India usually follow such visitations, owing to the de- struction of the crops and the effluvia created by the unburied and decaying bodies of men and cattle. We give from the Englishman some details of this most unfortunate occurrence :— Accounts are now pouring in from all quarters of the damage that has been caused on shore, and the utter ruin which has overtaken the greater part of the ship...
