Mr. Sholl's Dispatches. Government Resident's Office. Port Camden, September 16, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 January 1866

Mr. Sholls Dispatches. Government Resident's Office. Port Camden, September 16, 1865. Sir,- It is with much regret that I have to report, for the information of His Excellency the Governor, the loss of the Government pin- nace belonging to the station, together with the death of Michael Quinlan, blacksmith, at- tached to my party, who went down in her and was drowned. In my letters despatched by the Mystery and Wild Dayrell, I had the honor to inform you that it was my intention to institute a search after Mr. Cowle's boat as soon as I possibly could after the departure of those vessels. The Wild Dayrell sailed on the 16th ult., but a combination of circumstances, principally the difficulty of supplying a sufficiency of water during my absence, prevented my leaving camp until the 4th instant. On that day I started two parties-one under Mr. Assistant Surveyor Cowle in the As- sociation boat (which had been kindly placed at my disposal by its proprietors) ; the other under my command,...

LONDON WOOL REPORT.— NOVEMBER 24, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

LONDON WOOL REPORT.- t? NOVEMBEE 24,1865. I w The arrivals in time for the sales, which com .menced on the 16th of November, are-Sydney, 12,993 bales; Port Phillip, 3071 bales; New Zealand, 3333 bales ; Adelaide, 1175 bales ; Van Diemen's Land, 414 bales ; Cape, 30,853 bales. Total, 51,839 bales. The sales opened with a very large attendance of home buyers, and a fair number of exporters. The prices established proved an advance on good com bin» wools of l^d. to 2d., on fine and medium Sydney Id. to lad., on scoured Sydney lid., and on Capes, particularly the better sorts, fully ^d. to Id. ; all descriptions selling freely. The scarcity of good combing being more manifest every day from the few catalogued, has caused excessive competition for these descriptions, and the prices paid have been ex- ceedingly high, in many cases 3d, to 4d. advance having been paid on the cheapest portion of May and August sales.

THE Mails from the Eastern Colonies were received in Perth on Saturday at 8 a.m. Those from Europe and India did not arrive until Tuesday at 10§ a.m., the cause of the detention this time being reported to be that the mail steamer having met with some vessel in distress had to remain by her some three or four days. The principal news from England is that relating to the changes in the Cabinet consequent on the death of Lord Palmerston, the Fenian movement, and an insurrection among the negroes in Jamaica. We have to congratulate our wool growers and exporters, and also mine proprietors, upon the great proba- bility that our shipments by the three vessels leaving this week for London will realise very satisfactory prices, wool having risen l|d. ...

INDIA, CHINA, &c. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

INDIA, CHINA, &c. Our dates from India are-Bombay, Dec. 13 ; Calcutta, Dec. 9 ; Madras, Dec. 11. The threatened advance of our forces upon Bhootan has been stopped by a cu- rious peace which has been patched up with that country, by the terms of which we are to retaiu the disputed Dooars, and to receive back the two Armstrong guns lost in the previous expedition, in return for which Bhootan is to have from us a yearly payment of 20,000 rupees, to be increased to 50,000 if we are allowed to retain undisturbed possession of the Dooars ! Such a treaty has of course ex- cited much public feeling and a general sense of humiliation. Benojal was suffering severely from drought, some of the crops had totally failed, and fears were entertained of those left. The cattle disease had made its appear- ance in the Madras Presidency ; upwards of three thousand head had died of it in Burmah. A severe Cyclone had taken place off the Madras coast, in the losses conse- quent upon which we regr...

PERTH CHURCH OF ENGLAND COLLEGIATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

PERTH CHURCH OF ENGLAND COL- LEGIATE SCHOOL. THIS School, under the name of the "Bishop's School," was established in 1858 by the Lord Biskop of Perth, who was convinced of the great benefits a School of this nature would confer on the colony at large, and under this conviction it was for many years supported by him with- out any assistance, although at one time it was costing his Lordship between £200 and £300 a year. In the year 1862 a grant of £1100 was ob- tained from the Christian Knowledge Society towards the purchase of the School buildings and property, with a view to the School be- coming a Chartered Corporate Institution, the property being vested in a Council of fifteen Governors. To this noble benefaction was an- nexed the conditiou : That the remainder ofcthe purchase money ¿550 be raised in the colony. A Provisional Committee was formed of twelve gentlemen who recognized the very great ad- vantages which the colony would derive from such an Institution, and who, in ord...

ANOTHER QUACK PROPHET. The News of the Week. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

tot J ANOTHEE QUACK PEOPHET. vai ? ni! The News of the Week. f¡0 (Concluded from our last.) th( These events, however, are only pre- parations for those which are to follow. It will be surmised that the Antichrist of Captain Baker's imagination is the Emperor Naploeon. Indeed, that sove- reign appears to be rather popular in this character just at present. Kot to mention the various more or less distinguished European prophets who invest him with it, we noticed a few weeks ago the report of a lecture delivered in one of our own goldfield towns, in which the lecturer proved most conclusively that the French Emperor was the Antichrist of prophecy. These are the details given by Captain Baker of the Emperor's acquired supre- macy : " The 3rd June, 1872, then, will see Louis Napoleon almost supreme in the Eoman world. In the Eastern division, Greece, Turkey, Syria, Egypt, and the conquered States now belonging te Eastern Austria, will probably form the five tributary kingdoms represente...

INSURRECTION IN JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

INSURRECTION IN JAMAICA. A negro insurrection, which at one time threatened to be of a formidable character, has broken out in Jamaica ; but the energy with which it was met happily crushed it before the the full designs of the insurgents could be carried out. A despatch, dated October 20, addressed by the Lieut.-Governor of Jamaica to the Colonial Secretary has been published. It conveys the first official information of the most startling revolt which has occurred in an}' portion of the British dominions since the Indian mutiny, " The whole outrage," writes Governor Eyre, " could only be paralleled by the atrocities of the Indian mutiny. The women, as usual on such occasions, were even more brutal and barbarous than the men, the only redeeming trait being that, so far as we could learn, no ladies or children had as yet been injured." The punishment visited upon the eulprits has been signal and terrible. The insurrection seems to be a premature outbreak, resulting from the arrest o...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 January 1866

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Continued dissatisfaction prevails at the ir- regularity with which the mail service is con- ducted. Tenders are advertised for the mail service to King George's Sound for the two jears, to commence in April with the homeward mail. The date of closing for the tenders is the i2lh of February. The weather ha& been variable. Some few days has been exceedingly cold. The weather for the Christmas holidays has been very favourable, and the people have been enjoying themselves in a quirct way. The harvest will turn out much better than it was feared it would. During the last mouth the crops have matured very well. Considerable activity has been shown in the political world. Little has been done in the Council, but the Assembly have been hard at work. Several motions hostile to the Government have been brought forward, but have been either rejected or withdrawn. Mr. Goyder has returned from the North, and reports the line of demarcation of the rain- fall to be furth...

MELTING EFFUSION ON A HOT DAY IN AUSTRALIA. BY—L. L. M. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 26 January 1866

MELTING EFFUSION ON A HOT DAY IN AUSTRALIA. BY-L. L. M. * Alas for some secluded spot, Beneath an ambrosial screen. Completely shaded from the hot Rays of the sun's burning gleam. While softly murmuring at my feet, A lucid stream flows gently by ; On whose bosom my sight could greet, The clear blue image of the sky. On that limpid pool reflected, Is its flowery bank so clear, Its edge scarce can be detected, So perfect is the mirror there. Each crystal pebble in its bed. Their varied colors bright emit; Each golden fish, silver, and red, Flash, when sunny rays on them flit. But that fish cannot swim in air, We might doubt that water was there. And sweetly chirping amid the bows. Are loving birds exohanging vows. The whispering rustle through the leaves. The lulling ripple of the stream, The busy humming of the bees, Would wrap me soon in a sweet dream. An ambient perfume from the trees, A fragrent zephyr from each flower. Is lightly wafted on the breeze; O transport me to such a bow...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 26 January 1866

fetrrapiikiut To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,- Will you allow me a short space in your paper. A good deal has lately been said about the clearing of the river Canning, and although I do not question the utility of such a work, I doubt whether the present circumstances^of the Colony will justify so expensive an undertaking. I, for one, share the opinion of many practical men, that if such a scheme is to be carried out efficiently the cost will be something enormous, besides requiring an additional yearly expense. So far as I can see, the principal if not the only reason for advocating the clearing of the river, appears to be that some timber cut near the banks cannot be brought to market. This at first sight appears to be a serious impedi- ment to the Timber trade, a trade which promises to contribute largely to the prosperity of the Colony, and which it well behoves the Government to foster and assist in every pos- sible way where it really is necessary. It m...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIR,-At the last General Meeting of the Fre- mantle Volunteers it was resolved to have a trip np the river to Perth and back by moon- light, and I think the probable date spoken of was, so soon as the moon should be sufficiently full as to show light for the passage up and down. It strikes' me that this little social meeting is, contrary to the-I might say unanimous wish of the Company, liable to meet with the fate of many other good and sensible propositions which are mooted and resolved upon at these monthly meetings : i.e., to be entirely ignored and shelved. The time suitable for the trip is rapidly ap- proaching, and from what I can learn no steps whatever have been taken towards carrying out the expressed wish of the members. There is nothing in Military or semi-Military matters, like promptitude and sharp action. Dilatori ness and delay are productive of apathy and discontent-feelings I am sorry to say which have gradually be...

THE ANTIQUITY OF MAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 26 January 1866

THE ANTIQUITY OF MAST. The thirty-fifth annual meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science was held at Birmingham early in September last. The president of the year was Professor Phillips, F.E.S., &c., the distinguished professor of geology in the University of Oxford, from whose in- augural address on the occasion we ex- tract the following passage on the great scientific question of the day : THE EARLIER HACES OF MANKIND. Our own annals begin with the Kelts, if, indeed, we are entitled to call by that his- toric name the really separate nations, Belgium, Iberian, and Teutonic, whom the Eoman writers recognize as settlers in Britain ; settlers among a really earlier family, our rudest and oldest forefathers, who may havebeen, as they thought them- selves to be, the primitive people of the land. But beyond the Keltia who occu- pied the sources of the Danube and the slopes of the Tyrenees, and were known to Eome in later days, there was present to the mi...

Mr. Sholl's dispatches narrating what had taken place at Camden Harbor since our pre- vious advices from that uniortunate at- tempt at a settlement, were published in our issue of the 12th inst ; the only por- tion of general interest is the account of a disastrous boat expedition, made to en- deavor to recover two boats which had been stolen by the natives. In Port George the Fourth the party were de- coyed to landing by a native, but obser- ving the heads of several others peering above the rocks, they all returned to the boat but Mr. T.
