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

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8¡ W. A. Times. SIB,-Enough has been said of the pros and" cons of a Représentative Government, so that all people must have formed their opinion about the matter long before this. We are now wait- ing patiently for the result of the despatches £ sent to the Home Government on the subject. X Under the circumstances in which the colony is placed at present, I cannot adopt all the views that have been expressed in favor of a " Bepresentative Government, but I should like to point out one advantage that would certainly accrue from such a system, viz :, the right of members to call for statistical returns made np from Government accounts. Such statisticff are not always to be relied apon, it is true, bat they disclose at all times many interesting and * valuable facts, facts from which information may be drawn, that can hardly be obtained in any other way. I am led to these remarks be* ' cause I feel convinced that really useful and valuable informatio...

THE SCAB ACT. TO THE SHEEP-OWNERS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 February 1866

THE SCAB ACT. TO THE SHEEP-OWNERS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. BROTHEB SETTLERS.-I wish to call your at- tention to an advertisement which appears in the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times, in which it is proposed that all the sheep districts through- out the colony should send Delegates to meet at Perth on Friday, the 5th of April, in order to draw up the basis of a Scab Act which they would consider suitable to the general require- ments of the colony. Most of you, doubtless, have read the answer His Excellency gave to the Deputation on the Tobacco Duty and Scab question. His Excellency said he would give his full support to any Scab Act which all the Sheep-farmers agreed to, and he felt very cer- tain some such Act was much required, and at the same time intimated that it would be in- cumbent on the sheep-breeders to make pro- vision for all expenses which would be contin- gent on the Act. The question which you more immediately have to take into your consideration is-what will be the expense...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIB,-Notwithstanding the very many noble and estimable qualities possessed by our good Bishop, he is nevertheless not perfect ; and one -of his great imperfections seems to arise from his apparent utter inability to take an objective Tiew of matters brought before him in his offi- cial capacity as Bishop. What for instance, can be more to be lamented than his lordship's illogical and entirely SUBJECTIVE view (as the Germans would say) of the transaction treated of in his lordship's two letters in your issue of February 16th? Of course after your very temperate and able Leading Article of Feb. 2, you will not let the subject drop till we are landed on something better than quicksand, upon which we now stand-or rather flounder-as we can find no firm footing on it. If left where we are at present, I can only say "we are 'ALI. ABBOAD.' " For, no less a person than The Archdeacon has refused to bury a man who died from (nay, for argument...

" Two of a trade can never agree," so says an old adage, and we appear to have a notable instance of it in the differences which have long been known to prevail between the Comptroller-General of Con- victs here and the former Comptroller General of Convicts in Tasmania, now Governor of this Colony, probably made so on account of his efficiency in the for- mer appointment. However that may be there is no doubt Governor Hampton has not lost his taste for his old occu- pation, and hence Captain Newland and himself have come to loggerheads and, itis believed, that when His Excellency does fall out with any of his officers, he finds plenty of occasion to render things un- pleasant. In the present instance the differences are of long standing, and it is no secret that the Governor has made re- presentat...

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

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIB,-In your Journal of the 2nd instant, the leading article speaks strongly of a case re specting a man named Pollard, and in your two last numbers it is mentioned again to a great length, and I trust you will allow me a small space in your valuable journal, to mention a case as painful as that of Pollard, and also where there are a wife and family and large cir- cle of friends, whose feelings have been wounded by the circumstance. On the 14th of last month a probation pri-   soner was drowned while bathing in a pool at Northam and was not found till the following morning, and about the same hour Mr. John Giblett, an old settler died, after a long and painful illness, this was on Sunday morning, and it was arranged for both funerals to take place the following day ; but to the surprise of every one when Monday morning came, the Rev. C. Clay had left Northam at daylight for Perth, to be present at the Conference,...

CASTING OUT DEVILS. (Carnatic Telegraph.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

CASTING OUT DEVILS. (Carnatic Telegraph.) Casting out devils in India is extensively practised by the natives ; but there is as much difficulty in getting at the truth as it is to get the spiritualists, the Davenports, to declare themselves consummate cheats. We were present a &w weeks ago at an exercise of exorcism. The possessed was a young woman of about sixteen years, hale and hearty in appear- ance, and withal " very good looking " as in the expression applied to native women. She was much excited as she accompanied, or rather preceded her exorcist, and broke out occasionally into singing and dancing with an energy and manner which showed that she had no self control. The party which went with her stopped at a tree on the way, when the exorcist desired her to halt. His command instantly brought her prostrate before him, and she rolled on the ground in violent contortions. But it was objected by the father to fix the demon to the tree ; and according the exorcist address...

TRIAL VOYAGE BY THE TORRES STRAITS ROUTE. (Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

TRIAL VOYAGE BY THE TORRES STRAITS ROUTE. (Argus.) On Saturday, as the telegraph informs us, the first regular mail for Europe was despatched from Brisbane via Torres Stiaits. The steamship Souchays, speci- ally chartered for the service, sailed from Moreton Bay, calling at the more North- ern ports and touching at the new settle- ment at Gape York, from which she will make her way to Coepang or Batavia, there to place her mails on board the Dutch mail steamship, for con- veyance to Singapore where they will be transferred to the Peninsular and Oriental Company's mail vessel from China en rovie to Galle and Suez. The enterprise which the Queensland Govern- ment exhibits in this important matter promises to have important results for all - the other colonies of the group. The voyage of the Souchays is purely of an experimental character. She carries > neither cargo nor passengers. She is not timed to meet any particular vessel. She is a pioneer, sent out to traverse a new route an...

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

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ¿Ir W. A. Times. Dear Mb. Editob,-One of our chaps tells me we can't play our match on the public recreation ground, because the Cricket Club want it on the day our match is fixed for. But you haven't been told yet what our match Í3, and who with. The Bishop's School and National Schoolboys have fixed to play a match on Saturday, and it was settled to be played on the public ground. Now isn't it a greedy shame? one of the Cricket Club Committee, after naming himself as umpire for one of our elevens, quietly turns round and says " oh you " can't have your match on the public ground "on Saturday, because the club want it." This is too much of a good thing. The Club for a long time used (andabused) the Bishop's School ground when there was no other place to play on, but now that a suitable, place has been found by pubhc subscription, assisted by Govern- ment labour, the Club must needs try and keep it all to themselves ; though it is a subject of noto...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. Sib,-At this season when we are often driven to the last extremity for a breath of fresh air, it is considered by many that a walk down the South Beach is the most desirable resort-the cool sand being more agreeable to the feet than the hot dry boards of the Jetty. Many years since in the time of our former Resident, the late Richard McB. Broun, Esq., when Fre- mantle boasted of but one Police Constable, the South Beach was kept clear as a promenade for the wives and daughters of the townspeople on a Sunday afternoon, and now, many would prefer it, but for the scenes enacted there. Only last Sunday a number of men and boys were exposed bathing, in the full glare of day, near the watering jetty close to the town, to the dis- grace of the authorities and the disgust of all those who have any respect for public decency and morality, persons were in consequence ob- liged to leave the beach and go into the bush at great inconvenience in o...

THE ROMANCE OF OIL. (From the Brisbane Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

THE ROMANCE OF OIL. (From the Brisbane Courier.) The Land of Promise is Petrolia. It does not flow with milk, wine, and honey, but with oil. Nor is that exactly what the Patriarch rejoiced in " when he washed his steps with butter, and the rock poured him out rivers of oil." This is rock oil, but it is base brother to the " oil of promise," good not only for food, but also to make the joints supple, to comfort the skin, and give a cheerful countenance. It is a vegetable oil, indeed, for its ooze out of ante-Adamite forests, oleaginous ferns and pitchy pines, buried and crushed far below ; but it comes up with strange earthly alloy, and is most pungent and nauseous. It is kin to " slime" and bitumen, and suggestive of the Tower that was never to be finished, and the Lake that is never to be filled. But there has been no such El Dorado in our times. A wide district in a dreary and infertile corner of Pennsylvania has suddenly started into new life under this unctuous influence. Lonely...

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

Cormpittoita, To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. Sib,-I consider myself called upon by the writers, or perhaps the writer, of two letters'-in your last impression to say something more about the case of the late unhappy man Pollitt. I will not pledge myself to go on writing until the questions which have arisen out ofthat case shall have been settled : although, in one of the letters referred to, you are appealed to not to let the matter drop until such settlement has been arrived at. The said questions have been found too difficult for hasty solution even in the hands of the best and wisest of our Rulers at home ; and therefore it is not very likely that we, in Western Australia, shall be able to settle them by any summary process. However, we may be able to come to some amicable under- standing about them amongst ourselves : and such a result is certainly worth trying for. 1.-I am under no apprehension that my former letters have been generally misunderstood : but,...

THE VALUE OF SWAMPS IN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

THE VALUE OF SWAMPS IN AUSTRALIA. The report of the professional board, which was appointed to examine into the advisability of dispensing with various swamps, for which such numerous proposals of reclamation have been lately made, advises, we see, the excep- tion of a long list of marches from the reclaim- ing process ; and the general tenor of the re- port abundantly confirms the impression that any extensive drainage of our water-covered " waste lands" would be productive of very dangerous consequences. The belief that any general or extensive drainage of bogs and fens ought to prove a public benefit is one of the many old country ideas which is still inappli- cable here. In the United Kingdom, with its constantly dropping skies-in Holland, where so much of the soil has been wrested from the sea-there is as a rule, only too much water on the earth and in the air ; and in Western Eu- rope generally, the man who undertakes to re- move what has been termed those " blurs from the fai...

THE PAPAL ALLOCUTION/. (Sydney Morning Herald.) The following is the text of the Papal Allocution delivered in the Secret Con- sistory held at Home on the 25th Sep- tember, alluded to by Chief Justice Burt in his address at the laying of the Founda- tion Stone of the Masonic Hall, on the 13th ult. " Venerable Brethren, - Among the numerous machinations and artifices by which the enemies of the Christian name have dared to attack the Church of God, and sought to shake and besiege it by efforts, superfluous, in truth-must un- doubtedly be reckoned that perverse society of men vulgarly styled Masonic, which, at first confined to darkness and obscui'ity, now comes into light for the common ruin of religion and human society. " Immediately that our predecessor, the ßoman Pontiffs, faithful to their pastoral office, discoveied its snares and frauds, they considered there was not a moment to lose in holding in check by their authority, and in striking and lacerating by a condemnatory sente...
