Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 February 1866

Carmpntoiu*. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ^W. A. Times. SIB,-You will not for a moment suppose that it is from any desire on my part to prolong the discussion about the case of the unhappy man Pollitt, that I address another letter to you in addition to those which have been already pub- lished. But it is highly desirable that, when we do leave the discussion of that case, we should carry away from that discussion some clear and definite notions as to the real nature of the questions which have arisen. The writer of the letter signed "T" invyour last impression deserves our respect and thanks for the spirit in which he has written. He can understand that persons who adopt a line of conduct which, although painful to others, is most of all painful to themselves, from consci- entious motives, deserve consideration and sym- pathy; and his aim is evidently to promote peace and good-will amongst us. There are, however, certain points touched upon by him which he entirely misapprehe...

THE EASTERN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 February 1866

THE EASTEKN COLONIES. The intelligence generally from the other colonies is more reassuring than for several mails past, inasmuch, as in many places they have been favored with a heavy fall of rain, lasting from 24 to 26 hours ; and also that the result of the harvest has been a much batter crop than was anticipated. In New South Wales it was believed the new Tariff would place the ministry in an easy position as regards the provision for the year, and would probably do something towards making up for the deficiencies of past years. In Victoria the position of affairs does not seem mended. So far as the elec- tions had gone the result had been an accession of strength to the ministry, who will no doubt persevere in their uncon- stitutional proceedings. The course of events in Victoria should be a caution to other communities to pause before adopting manhood suffrage and giving up government to a mob majority. Sir Charles Darling is said to have been severely censured by the Secretar...

THF LATE INSURRECTION IN JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 February 1866

THF LATE INSURRECTION IN JAMAICA. The prompt suppression of the outbreak in Jamaica, as announced in our last, was followed by the most severe measures against the negroes, of whom 2000 are said to have been either shot or hanged in the course of a few days. The ' Jamaica Colonial Standard' says : - The rebellion has been effectually suppressed, and the few remaining fugitives among the rebels have availed themselves of the amnesty proclamation issued by Governor Eyre. The great heads of the rebellion, and all the minor leaders, have fallen under the power of the law and been executed, or are in custody awaiting their doom. The number of rebels that have perished by the.executioner, or have been shot down, is very large ; their villages, houses, and settlements nave been razed, and such terrible example given them as will prove a permanent check to any future rebellion. The confessions of the rebels, documents and other proofs show that their intentions were to exterminate the white...

THE BURIAL OF POLLITT. Bishop's House, Perth, W. A., February 7, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 February 1866

THE BURIAL OF POLLITT. Bishop's House, Perth, W. A., February 7, 1866. SIB,-In accordance with the desire of His Excellency the Governor, expressed in His Excellency's minute of the 2nd inst., I lu respectfully to offer the following remarks upon the case of the man Pollard, or Pollitt, who died in Perth, on 31st ult., under circumstances of a most painful character. I will remark, first, upon Archdeacon Brown's refusal to read the service for the burial of the dead over the corpse of Pollard; and second, upon his forbidding the interment of the corpse in the Church of England Cemetery, His Excellency is, no doubt, aware that the question of the use of the burial service in such deplorable cases as that of Pollard, is a ques- tion which has caused a very great amount of discussion of late years, so much so that we may be certain (i.e., as certain as we can be of any future event) that there will before long be a change in the law affecting such cases. His excellency will, I have no ...

GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 February 1866

GKEAT BRITAIN. THE intelligence from England is not of any great interest. In politics all is con- jecture as to the policy which is to mark the government of Earl Bussell, but if we may judge by the few signs manifest, the prominent feature of the commence- ment of his ministry will be the intro- duction of a Beform Bill, although of what character it is likely to be, it seems impossible to judge. The Fenian move- ment seems to be dying out with the trials of the captured principals. The Americans appear to have no desire to go to war with us about the Alabama and Shenandoah. That which most troubles the people at home at present, was the continued spread of the cattle disease, and the terrible punishment inflicted on the rebel negroes in Jamaica by Governor Eyre and the colonial authorities. The cause of the negro had been taken up by the Badicals and the Baptists, and numerous indignation meetings held. An investigation into the whole matter is to be made by a commission during w...

GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

GREECE. Brigandage is increasing, it is said, over all Greece. It has been discovered by the Prefect of Argolis that the monastery of the Panaghia, in Kynouria, has for some time served as the headquarters of the great band of Lingos. An act of Brigandage, accompanied by horrid cruelty, has been committed in the neighbour- hood of Corinth. Robbery and murder prevail in the Peloponnesus to an alarming extent. In Northern Greece matters are much worse, but the citizens of Athens console themselves for the sufferings of the agricultural population by saying that all- the brigands cross the frontier from Turkey. A band of 25 entered the village of Zacharas, in the eparchy of Leba deia, and murdered seven of the inhabitants who resisted being plundered.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

AMERICA. The Message of President Johnson seems to have had a very salutary effect throughout the country. It is regarded as an able State paper, pacific in tone, and calculated to contribute ma- terially to the restoration of good feeling be- tween the two sections lately in conflict, and to allay much of the apprehensions of foreign com * plication previously felt, Its effect upon Con- gress is said to have been important, and the ' Conservative Republicans seem to havo been in mpny cases influenced thereby to adopt a more conciliatory course towards the South. A resolution has been introduced in Congress, -and referred to the Committee for Foreign Affairs, requesting the President to take such steps concerning the Mexican question as will . vindicate the policy and protect the honor and , interest of the Federal government. Congress has caliea for the Mexican correspondence. The Senate has passed the resolution concern« - iinji itiie admission of Southern representatives VfriPmat...

AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

AUSTRIA. The emperor of Austria arrived in Pesth on Dec. 12. and opened the Hungarian Diet on the 14th in person. In his speech, his majesty re cognisedthe necessity of the autonomy of Hun- gary so far as it was compatible with the unity of the Empire, and said that in order to re- establish the integrity of the Hungarian Crown he had caused steps to be taken so that Tran- sylvania and Croatia should be represented in the Diet at Pesth. The emperor then pointed out that the first object of their deliberations should be those questions which concern all the provinces, keeping in view as their principal aim the unity of the Empire and the position of Austria as a great Power, and next the modifi- cation of the laws of 1848. These questions settled and the programme of the coronation of the Emperor of Austria as King of Hungary would take place. His majesty's speech was frequently interrupted by cheers.

Correspondence. IN SEARCH OF A GRAVE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W.A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

Cûrrapuimu*. IN SEAECH OF A GKAVE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W.A. Times. SIE,-Your columns have lately displayed a good deal of discussion on the subject of the re* jection of James Pollitt's body from'the Pub- lic Cemetery. None of the. writers have how- ever told us that which we most care to know. All that we have learnt is that unless a man happens to die either a Protestant of the Church of England, a Eoman Catholic, a Wesleyan, or an Independent, he may lay his account to not being admitted after death into any burial place at present set apart in this colony for the reception of deceased settlers. This is a point entirely ignored by Bishop, Archdeacon, and the other polemical writers from A to T or Z. It is however a question which must interest both the public and the Government. It is not for us to decide upon the peculiar value of the various creeds adopted among the great body of Christians throughout the world. W e are not prepared to say that a conscientious...

TRANSLATIONS FROM DE GUYOT'S WORKS ON VINE CULTURE AND WINEMAKING. (Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

TRANSLATIONS FROM DE GUYOT'S WORKS ON VINE CULTUBE AND WINEMAKING. (Adelaide Observer.) I have already said that to make good wine all the operations which follow the gathering of the grapes should be carried on under cover of the house allotted for that purpose. At present I would describe these operations. However simple and primitive as may appear to be the making of wine, it embraces a series and suc- cession of facts which should be well^raderstood by the proprietor, or whoever else has the direc- tion. The chief, whoever he may be, should receive in person the grapes as they arrive, note the quarter from whence they come, ex- amine their condition, quantity, quality, and richness, all of which should be entered in the vintage-book. He should then see the grapes placed in a convenient place for future opera- tions. In noticing the quarter, he will specify the particular part of the vineyard upon which these grapes were grown, the soil, and the particular vine being already know...

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

NOETHEßN AUSTRALIA. {Australasian.) It appears to be somewhat doubtful whether the effort made by South Aus- tralia to settle the north-western terri- tory is not likely to end in total failure. The experiment of Port Essington is be- ing repeated, but even less hopefully ; and it is not improbable that the second failure may be worse than the first. Much depends on Mr. M'Kinlay's exer- tions. The latest information from Adam Bay is also curious, from the evidences of stagnation, if not retrogression, which it presents. Colonel Finnis, recalled, has departed from Timor on his return to Adelaide ; Escape Cliff resiains the capi- tal, but has still only been partially sur- veyed : while one of the first party re- mains in gaol in Adelaide on the charge of murdering a blackfellow, the natives have taken their vengeance by shooting an unarmed shepherd as he watched his little flock of sheep by night ; and the ex- ploration of the country has not resulted in the discovery of more than th...
