THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 26 January 1866

THE MELBOURNE EXHIBITION. Every exertion is being made to secure a fair representation of the products of this colony at the Melbourne Exhibition. At a meeting of the central committee on Monday last, E. H. Bland, Esq., Clunes, Victoria, and J. B. Were, Esq., 22 Col- lins-street, Melbourne were appointed Commissioners to represent this colony, and from what we know of the first named gentleman, and what we hear of Mr. Were, we are satisfied, that our interests cannot be in better hands. In commercial matters we have no movement to report; stocks generally are full, but not more so than will be readily moved^ off before any fresh ar- rivals are expected. We give the usual mining reports, which are favorable. The timber trade is still prosperous and fur- ther orders have been received. An im- portant improvement in the sandalwood trade has taken place, which cannot but be of great benefit to this colony, and will place in comfort large numbers in the country to whom its previous decli...

RECENT EXPLORATION. WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 26 January 1866

RECENT EXPLORATION. BY THE REV. J. E. TENISON WOODS, F.R.G.S., F.L.S.. &c. WESTERN AUSTRALIA. There remained in my last communication a series of questions with reference to Western Australia which want of space compelled me to hold over. They had reference principally to the granite, which all explorations have shown to be the one prevailing rock in the out- lying districts of that colony. The first query to be answered was, why such large parts were so unfertile-why so great an extent of country should reveal nothing, no matter where it is examined, either north, south, east, or west, but dreary scrubs and sterile plains, salt marshes and rocky hüls, and sand, sand, sand, either in the form of sandy loam, red sand, white sand, and grey sand, and sand of every hue ? First of all, though we must not blame the granite for everything, really it is not a profitable kind of rock to have. It contains so very large a proportion of silica in its constitution, that a quartzose soil ...

INTERNATIONAL SCRIBBLING. [Oriental Budget.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 February 1866

INTERNATIONAL SCRIBBLING. rOiiental Budaet.l The recent correspondence between Mr. Adams and Earl Russell, respecting the American claims for compensation on account of the depredations committed by Confederate cruisers, armed and" equipped in England, seems to have been conducted with much courtesy. There appears to have been no exhibition ofthat tone of overbearing conceit which we have been too frequently compelled to consider national to the United States. Mr. Adams again brings forward the old complaint respecting our excess of haste in recognising the South as belligerents, and aflamas that we be- haved in a very unkindly spirit in being so ready to encourage rebels ; in fact, that we ou^ht to have perceived from the outset that the North must eventually win. To this Lord Russell has answered, that when five millions of people establish a government and army, and rule over a vast extent of territory, they can hardly be classed under the denomination of rebels. The establishmen...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 February 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) Nothing has occurred in this lively place to disturb the even teneur of-not life-existenceTN The old year came to an end, and the new <*. comes in without any demonstration by ' the inhabitants of joy for the.one or sorrow for the other. It is true that one energetic individual suddenly awoke out of the general lethargy, and rushed about some parts of the town tinkling a dinner bell, and narrowly escaping a brick or stone, as we are accustomed to hear the music of stray bullock bells at all sorts of unreasonable hours in the night, and the only means of ridding the noise is a stone or a stick. On the Greenough there was an attempt made to cause a sensation, by a party of Christmas keepers driving round the Flats, frightening the nervous, vexing the weary, but amusing themselves with music and shouting - and a general accompaniment, to fill up the. \ ^ harmony, of tin fry-pans and anything that. - - would remind the people that t...

FAMILIARITY WITHOUT CRIME THROUGH FICTION. [Oriental Budget.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 February 1866

FAMILIARITY WITHOUT CRIME " THROUGH FICTION. l'Oriental Budaet.l "L'homme se pique" is a saying hackneyed enough, though it is often an open question whether it be not the world instead of himself which acts the part of file to his wits, even as the river rounds and polishes the stone which rolls along with its course. But, if a man sharpen himself, it must he admitted that it is others who blunt him, and rub the edge off his rawness, his crude obstinacy, and his self-consciousness. Sometimes they rub what might be better left ; a pebble in the rough weighs more than a pebble from the lapidarist, and honesty and candour are among the awkward angu- larities of youth, something too swiftly rubbed away by the emery-powders of expediency and experience. If we quickly let ourselves be polished and given an edge, we are not less quick to let ourselves ia ' other things be planed away by the nearest hands to an even, uniform surface, cut according to the prevalent mode. Original minds, we ...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 February 1866

INDIA. The subject of horse-breeding and cattle-breeding are beginning to excite at- tention in India : and as Australia may ultimately be concerned in both, I scarcely think that any apology is neces- sary for bringing them to your readeis* notice. With regard to horses, I may say that the sources from which we have hitherto derived our supplies-Arabia and Persia -are slowly but surely failing us ; and as we appear to have no good stock from which we can breed, the only course to be pursued is to obtain them from other countries. In July last an importation of horses took place from Natal, for the use of the Government ; and although it was only an experiment, it proved to be such an utter failure that I question whether it will ever be repeated. About ninety horses were shipped in very good health,, but owing to insufficient accommodation,, or to disease, or to both combined, only about twenty were landed at Bombay. These were required for horse artillery, cavalry, &c, but...

icrtlj <§a¿ett* # W. %. «irnes. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st afc bo thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shalcsjpeare. A PAINFUL occurrence on Wednesday has excited a great deal of discussion and ex- pression of feeling. A poor unfortunate creature, an habitual drunkai'd but other- wise a quiet and,itis believed, honest man, had died in the morning from a fit, after having been drunk on the previous day. Three jurymen of extra virtue were pleased to return a verdict that the deceased died from excessive drinking, and on this ground, Archdeacon Brown considered himself justified in not only refusing to perform the burial service, but also to allow the body to be interred within the cemetery, and it was buried outside alongside a chinaman and exe- cuted felons. Thedeceasedhad, webelieve, no family or relatives in the colony ; so far there are no wounded feelings to talk of, and the matter only becomes of interest as being the first instance in th...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 February 1866

Carrey animue. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sf W. A. Times. Slß,-Governor Kennedy's apology to the sheep-farmers for so unstatesmanlike an act as a duty on sheep-dressing tobacco was this "I will make you grow it." Some people thought it a wise speech, but what has been the result ? He did not make us grow it, and what is of more serious consequence, he forced us into all sorts of experiments with minerai poisons, thereby causing the death of thousands of sheep, and the loss of hundreds of bales of wool. The truth of this assertion will be plain to those wno will read the following items, not collected from the colony at large, but such as have come within my own knowledge : 1. Two hundred sheep destroyed by arsenic and corrosive. 2. A number more than equal to the cost of tobacco at a moderate price, destroyed by cor- rosive. 3. A considerable number destroyed by coi>7 rosive and blue-stone. 4. A number of good sheep destroyed by dressing with quick lime. 5. Whole flock in...

The latest ad- dition to the library consisted of a shipment of 289 volumes received per Fitzroy in April last ; jand if the great run made upon them by the '^members be taken as a criterion of their worth, the selection has proved most satisfactory. The number of volumes issued during the year was upwards of 9,100, exclusive of 3 0 to the Busselton Library, and 210 to the Northam Mechanics' Institute, making a total of 9,6lo, being an increase of 1,610 over last year's issue.
