A NEW YEAR'S OFFERING. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 5 January 1866

A NEW YEAR'S OFFERING. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-A Ilappy New Year to you ! This is 1866! It is long ages ago since the Pagan world heard the shuddering cry come up from the reedy shores " Great Pan is dead"-since Jove nodded himself to sleep, and Hercules settled down to the "enjoyment of a rest im- pervious to mortal outcries, after his labors in the Public Works' . Department of his day. Everywhere, under the influences oí a Chris- tianity which at least believes in steam and electricity, and backs its Bishops in partihus with Enfield rifles, men have learnt that it is useless to call upon the Gods, let them be never so badly bogged. Everywhere they see there is nothing for it but to lay into the hides of their team and set their own shoulders to the wheel to boot. Everywhere-that is to say except in Western Australia which is the verit- able "Micawber" among the British Colonies. We ai» always waiting for " something to turn np," and crying, out with...

The following interesting despatches from Mr. Sholl, give a general resume of all that had taken place since our last intelligence (by the Wild BayrellJ at this,] now deserted locality. As was foreseen by most persons when the Kestrel was first taken up for the service, that vessel proved to be utterly unfit for the removal of all the people at Camden Harbor, and their belongings and the consequence ha» been the abandonment of much valuable property, and a considerable number of horses, some public, bu1¿ mostly belonging to the members of the late Association,, and a great portion of what was taken away was greatly damaged from, the rough usage it received. However, much as the loss has been, it was preferable,, rather than that any unavoidable, delay should have taken place in getting the people away ...

Correspondence. THOUGHTS ABOUT THE NATIVES. III. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 January 1866

Cürrapitímta. THOUGHTS ABOUT THE NATIVES. III. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8¡ W. A. Times. SIE,-We were lately informed ex cathedra, that those who entertain my views as to the proper mode of proselytizing the Natives must be content to rank among the enemies of true religion. Moreover that we consider all religions alike; place Mahommedanism and Paganism, on a par with Christianity; and pronounce the natives to be quite as well off at present as if they had be- come ¡.sincere, orthodox, practical members of the Church of England. Was this a candid mode of stating the case P What I have really said is, that the Clergy and other good and well-meaning people ttalk (for during 30 years none of them has yet don© more than talk) of building a superstructure without first laying a reasonable foundation. I never said that the natives are not to be Christianiaed, but " do " not attempt what you cannot carry through "unless you proceed with something besides "Missionary zeal." The sug...

ANOTHER QUACK PROPHET. [The News of the Week.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 January 1866

ANOTHER QUACK PROPHET. [The Netos of the Week.] Anotber prophet has arisen, or rather another expounder of prophecy. Dr. Cumming's sensational announcements have scarcely faded from public recol- lection when a successor in tbe same line ha¡* made his appearance. This time the interpreter of revelation is not a Doctor of Divinity, but a Captain of Engineers. Captain W. A. Baker of the Royal Bom- bay Engineers has published a book entitled "The day and the Hour; or, Notes on Prophecy: a Sketch of the Future, extracted from the Bible." There is not a great deal in the book to dis- tinguish it from others of its class ; un- less, perhaps, the amusing circumstan- tiality by which it is characterised, and the ingenuous avowal by the author of his manifest unûtness of his self-imposed task. Captain Baker makes no pre- tension to have brought deer> study or more than a very average amount of learning to his work. On the contrary, he informs us that four months previous to his time of wr...

I replied I was sorry, but he had aggravated me. He said that he hoped it was all over. I after- wards sat down with my elbows on my knees and my face in my hands, when shortly after I felt myself struck in the hand, and on looking up I saw prisoner running out of the door ; my hand was cut and bled much.

TIEN TSIN BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 January 1866

TIEN TSIN BAY. In despite of a drought which had, with the exception of two or three partial showers, existed for l8 months, the ac- counts from this district, as also from the De Grey, are very satisfactory ; stock of all kinds, sheep, horses, and cattle have thrived wonderfully, and are rolling in fat ; the increase of that taken from hence has been very satisfactory the lambiug being full 100 per cent, and are doing so well that lambs dropped in June last were in November fully as large as their mothers ; but of the Victorian sheep we cannot say so much, as they were landed in such weak condition as to necessitate the killing of all the lambs, and the ewes are only just now getting into good con- dition. As regards that primary condition of success-the effect of the climate on the wool-we have the satisfaction of giving the testimony of Mr. Withnell, a most competent judge, that in his opinion the weight of the fleece is, if anything, greater than was yielded by his stock when in...
