FARMING DIFFICULTIES — PRESENT AND PROSPECTIVE. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

FARMING DIFFICULTIES - PRE- SENT AND PROSPECTIVE. (Australasian.) Though a " time of scarcity" is now upon us, we cannot shut our eyes to the fact that such events were always fore- shadowed. The terrible drought in New South Wales, for which a general fast was proclaimed in November, 1838, throughout the length and breadth of the land, is vividly remembered by those who went through that ordeal of famine and desolation. Provisions for man and beast were at ruinous rates.' But the contemplation of such a picture as is re- presented to us by old colonists is though fearfully real, decidedly unpleasant. That such droughts' extend all over the con- tinent cannot be said. But the coloides of New South Wales, Swan River, and the northern districts of Victoria and South Australia, as also the inlands parts of Queensland, are to be classed as re- gions where we may from time to time apprehend the occurence of the dreadful scourge of desolating droughts. We cannot recommend the farmer to se...

BONE-DUST AS MANURE. (Brisbane Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

BONE-DUST AS MANUEE. (Brisbane Courier.) Bones, in one form or another, have now for over half a century been looked upon as one of the most valuable fertil- isers known to agriculturists. In the cities and towns of Great Britain they form an important item of commerce. Were they to represent the same value here, many thousands sterling would be annually added to the wealth of the colony,-bones being eagerly bought up by dealers there at about 5s. per hundred- weight; while with us they can be had, often in abundance, for the gathering, their presence, except by very few, being looked upon rather as a nuisance to be got rid of than otherwise. When to this state of things is added the almost certainty with which the crops at present raised could be increased, and others grown which now scarcely exist, the subject attains an importance we hope soon to see appreciated by all engaged in agricultural and horticultural pursuits. While not altogether agreeing with Mr. Smith in his wholesal...

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, FEBRUARY 9, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

i*rtfe éasilt* tf ffii. g. Kim«. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. THE almost complete impunity from the occurrence of any very destructive fires hitherto enjoyed by the residents of our principal towns, has induced an entire neglect of those public organizations for rendering effectual assistance towards their being extinguished when they do happen, which are now to be found in the towns of most civilized communities. Fortunately for us the timber used in our buildings-the mahogany-is not readily ignitable unless when in contact with a considerable body of flame and heat, and such fires as have happened have usually taken place in thatched buildings, or in stables where a large quantity of hay or straw has been set light to by the carelessness of smokers, as was no doubt thecause of the losssustained by Mr. S. Cook last week. Much as we may regret what has happened, it will we hope be attended with some g...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

To Hie Editor of the Perth Gazette 8¡ W. A. Times. SIR,-Will your be good enough to allow rae a small space in your widely circulated journal, lor the purpose of making a few re- marks on the letter of Archdeacon Brown, which appeared in your Contemporary's issue of the 7th inst. I will not presume to offer an opinion as to whether the Archdeacon in refusing interment to the remains of the unfortunate man Pollitt had acted becomingly or otherwise ; what I desire to do is to contradict in the most positive manner the Archdeacon's statement that I had acted with undue precipitancy in the matter, and that it was owing to my unseemly hurry that he was prevented from obtaining the Bishop's counsel as to how he was to proceed in such a peculiar case. The facts are simply these-At 10 a.m. on the morning of the Inquest I was informed by the Coroner that I could inter the remains of Pollitt that afternoon ; I accordingly at 11 a.m. proceeded to the Archdeacon's house, and left a message to t...

PERTH HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

PEETH HOETICULTUKAL SOCIETY. THE first show of this resuscitated Society was held at the Boy's School-room on Wednesday last, when notwithstanding the very unfavorable nature of the season, to the surprise of most persons, the size and beauty of the fruit exhibited, parti- cularly grapes, was never exceeded, although perhaps the quantity and variety fell much short of what we have seen at the shows held a few years' since. Vegetables were scarcely represented, the principal being rhubarb, pumpkins, and some very fine yellow mangold worzel, which, it is whispered, were somehow or other mistaken by the judges for sweed turnips. The dried fruits were very fine, especially the splendid raisins, pears, and apples shown by Mr. Joseph Hardey, than which we have never seen anything finer imported. The Zante cur- rants, and one lot of figs were also very fair samples. Mr. Jeck's olive oil left nothing to be desired either in color or clearness. General report by a large number of visitors wh...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) Heat-don't mention it-as that gives you but a very faint idea of what we have had for a few days, backed up with land winds and bush fires close to the town. However, I am glad to say that we have now our regular south west winds and cool nights, which are appreciated after two or three days gentle roast. At the mines a man named Sims has lost some 14 tons of hay, supposed to be from a pipe or match. On the Flats a pensioner that has been burnt out twice before, lighted his pipe against a heap of wheat," and without looking threw the match on a straw stack close at hand which was entirely consumed. On the Irwin the whole country has been burnt for miles, doing Hamersly & Co. muchjinjury, burning one of the laborers' houses, the iamily only having time to save themselves, this and some miles of fencing besides thousands of acres of feed, was the work of a few hours. Mr. Hooley has been heard of by a native sent by him to the Bay ; h...

THE BURIAL OF JAMES POLLITT. THE following letter appeared in the Inquirer of Wednesday last, upon which it is unnecessary for us to make any comment:— Perth, February 6, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

THE BUEIAL OF JAMES POLLITT. THE following letter appeared in the Inquirer of Wednesday last, upon which it is unneces- sary for us to make any comment : Perth, February 6, 1866. SIB,-I shall be obliged if you will allow me space to state the facts connected with a very painful occurrence, to which public attention has already been directed. A man named James Pollitt was seen in a state of intoxication on the afternoon of Tues- day, the 30th ultimo. He spent the evening of that day, in company with others, at a pub- lic house in Murray Street. About 7 o'clock on Wednesday morning Sub-Inspector Camp- bell was desired by the landlord to come and see Pollitt. He found him lying insensible. There was an apparent effort to be sick ; the fumes of drink were very strong upon him ; and he presented the appearance oí a man suffering from " excessive drinking." Pollitt was placed upon a stretcher, to be taken to the hospital, and died on the way. An inquest was held on the day of his death. T...

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

VICTOBIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) Your " Own Correspondent" took a trip to Perth last month, and he is sorry to have to re- port that his feelings were much hurt by the bad state of the roads between here and Guildford, which are really much in want of re- pairs, as, by the bye, what road in any part of the colony where you have a correspondent is not?; The bridges over the brooks and gullies are nearly all broken in and dangerous to cross, that is to say there are holes in them of a most convenient size for receiving a horse or bullock's hoof, and it is a source of astonish ment to me that as yet I have heard of no accident happening to any of the cattle drawing heavily laden drays, for a horseman when crossing them would deem it an impossibility for a team of bullocks to get over without breaking some of their legs ; however as it is useless to say that the Government should do this, that, or the other, as they always do as they themselves deem fit, we must comfort ou...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-It is to be regretted that poor Pollitt, over whose remains an inquest was held at Perth, on Wednesday, January 31st, was so entirely friendless. It would appear that there was not one person in Perth who took effectual steps to prevent the body being so in- terred, as to harrow up the feeling of those who seem horror stricken, because the poor creature was not buried in a cemetery, and was not declared to be committed to the gvound in sure certain hope. A man who so conducted himself for many years as poor Pollitt did, ac- cording to the evidence given at the Inquest, could not be fairly considered to be a member of any religious congregation, and therefore a Church of England Minister, in this colony had as much right as any- other minister to de- cline doing the service requested from him. If Archdeacon Brown saw reason to refuse com- pliance, when desired to read the burial service over the remains of the poor man, did any o...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

C^rrespiib-eita, To the Editor of the Fen h Gazette # W. A. Times. SIR,-Having been more than thirty years in Western Australia it will be taken for granted that I am pretty ignorant, but I happened to read in one of your papers an extract from the report of the Chief Inspector of Scab in Sydney, which I thought worthy of notice. It was in effect this-" That the only true specific for Scab at present known, is a mixture of sulphur and tobacco in the proportion of one pound of each to five gallons of water." I have tried this remedy in the most careful manner, following the printed directions as nearly as possible, and the result is all that could be de- sired ; I was prepared to give two dippings if necessary, but now at the end of three months there is no appearance of any disease, although they have been on old runs and surrounded by other flocks. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, JOHN SEWEM., JUN. York, Jan. 12,1866.

QUEENSLAND. (Brisbane Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

QUEENSLAND. (Brisbane Couriet.) The fact has long been a recorded one tnat, as a distinct portion of the com- munity, those engaged in the cultivation of the soil are a body of continual grumblers, yet this disposition springs more from anxiety than aught else. In no country, so far as written chronicles extend, has there ever been a season altogether satisfactory to the minds of the farmers and gardeners thereof; nor is it supposed frail humanity, ever will ex- perience such a season-the thing is an impossibility. The mind of man is so constituted that such an agreement on the ever-changing topic of the weather can never be arrived at. This present season of 1865 is as good an illustration of the fact as could possibly be found, at all events in the history of Queensland. Farmers, with the exception of those engaged in grain growing, and even with them maize is an exception, assure us that the year about to close has been the most unhappy ever experienced here ; and in that stateme...

MANUFACTURE OF CHEESE. (Scientific American.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

MANUFAOTTTRTC OF nFTETïïSTC I.M V.U.VXUWU VX' » *.??" '??'? ÍScienUñc American.} We were lately informed by a very in- telligent fanner of northern New York, that the manufacture of cheese, when pro- perly conducted, was a very profitable business ; " but" he added, " there's more bad cheese than bad butter made, and there's more than enough of that." For some years past large quantities of the best American cheese have found a ready sale in Great Britain : in some sections of which cheese is used to a great extent as an article of daily food, by both rich and poor. We have been credibly in- formed that almost all the best American cheese is exported-the inferior qualities being kept for home use. A few remarks on the subject will-not be unprofitable at present, as this is the season when most of our farmers set about making cheese. The principal substances in milk are the fatty butter parts, milk-sugar and casein. The latter is really the cheesy part ; but cheese of the best qualit...

ROEBUCK BAY PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

BOEBUCK BAY PASTORAL AND AGRICULTURAL ASSOCIATION. The second ordinary general meeting of the Roebuck Bay Pastoral and Agricultural As- sociation, limited, was held at the Freemasons' Hotel, Perth, on Monday last, when the following Report of the Association was read and adopted : GENTLEMEN,-At the first ordinary meeting of the shareholders of this Association, held on the 6th February, 1865, the Report presented by your Directors was confined to a brief state- ment of the various operations that had been undertaken by them during the few months they had held office. It now becomes their duty to place fully before you the proceedings of the* past year, and the present state and prospects of the Association. 2--It is not likely to have escaped your re- collection that the day prior to the meeting adverted to, the sad report of the supposed loss of the first manager, Mr. Jas.

THE STATISTICS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 February 1866

THE STATISTICS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. (Sydney Morning Herald.) The Annual Statistical Register has íecently been laid on the table of the Assembly, and it gives us the story of our affairs in 1864, so far, at least, as figures can be trusted to tell that story. The population at the end of the year was estimated at 392,489. A later estimate up to the middle of the present year has raised this to 400,000. The rate of increase was 3'60 per cent.-not a rapid rate considering what takes place elsewhere. But of this increase 0*84 only is due to new arrivals, 2*75 being the result of natural increase. Of the new-comers, Ireland furnishes by far the largest proportion, the ratio being as follows:-2951 from Ireland; 732 from England and Wales ; 275 from Scotland ; and 19 from other countries. The re- ligion of the immigrants corresponds to this classification, 2354 being Roman Catholics, 1616 being Protestants, and 7 being classed as belonging to other religions. The year 1864 was a bad year, ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,-The weather being very hot and prickly-heat prevalent, we sometimes remem- ber grievances at these seasons when otherwise they would be forgotten. Going to the Post office the other day, "a building without a verandah," my temper was not at all improved by standing in the sun then about 130deg., more particularly as I was obliged to hear the   pros and cons of a quantity of general news be- ing discussed by some three or four policemen,   some lolling on the counter, others inside the office, reading the news. I have a very great respect for that particular cloth, and there may be very good men wearing it, but when we re- member that the assistance of the Clerk of the Court, who was in the habit of lending a hand to sort letters, &c, thus enabling all parties to get their news much sooner than they would have done without, was on the complaint of our citizens discontinued, and an order p...
