JUVENILE LABOUR IN ENGLAND. (From the Liverpool Post.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

JUVENILE LABOUR IN ENGLAND. (From the Liverpool Post.) There is a skeleton in nations as in dwelling-houses, and the skeleton in England is that of a child. Infanticide refers to an aversion to trouble rather than to a dread of shame, for married women frequently stifle nature in the " babes who milk them," and escape the penalty. Our high civilisation presents opportunities for the employment of the labour of children, and the "greed of gain " operates alike in operative fathers and mothers, as well as manufacturers. The Legislature had some difficulty in ridding the factories and coal mines of little boys and girls, and the factories and coal mines are better worked by adults. There are, however, still further pursuits which offend against humanity, and the said details of early suffering and early death will be found in the report of "The Children's Employment Commis- sion." Sheffield is the charnelhouse of boys ultimately killed. Sheffield is cele- brated for its manufacture of ...

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, MARCH 2, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

|«rtj «»jííte * W. %. «im«. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country'f», Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. FEIDArTMARCHTiTlsë^ j It is generally anticipatad, by those pro- fessing to be weather-wise, that we shall be favored by providence with an early and very heavy wet season. We hope they may be correct in their surmises, and in the chance it behoves us to look to it that every possible preparation is made for taking advantage of it, to obtain as plentiful a harvest next year as this year we had a poor one. The experience of the past as well as of many previous seasons has taught our corn-growers the lesson, that it is the early sown corn alone that is certain to repay the cultivator ; late sown may do so, but it is a chance. No one doubts for a moment that every memDer of the community is affected the prosperity of the colony is concerned, by the relative area of land each year got under crop, and its average produce.

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 Sf W. A. Times. Sib,-Knowing you to be a man of " pro bono publico" principles, I venture to crave a small space in the Perth Gazette Sf W. A. Times for a few remarks relative to the necessity of creat- ing some change in our present system of sheep farming ; and as I have been for many years employed both as Manager and Overseer of sheep in the Victoria District, the opinion I hold on the subject is the result of practical ex- perience, namely : that the required alteration will never take place unless rendered compul- sory by legal enactments ; a conclusion which no man of thought can avoid coming to, who takes into consideration the freedom from scab known to exist in the Southern Colonies, where a Scab Act is in force, and the constantly scabby condition of sheep in all parts of West- ern Australia. The settlers in the Victoria District are really inclined to do the right thing, and I know several amongst them who were sanguine that the Petitio...

BUSSELTON. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 March 1866

BUSSELTON. (From a Correspondent.) This has been a holiday week down here, races, cricket matches, and balls .drew the settlers from all parts, and one could only wonder where all the people carne from. One old fellow, who has been 25 years in the colony, tells me he has come 60 miles to get a clean shirt ; another that he has come 40 miles to get the loan of a spade. The cricket match was between the Bunbury and Vasse elevens, the latter party coming off victors by 40 runs. The following is the result of the racing :~ MAIDEN PLATE, £20. F. Guerin's g.g. Malakoff . 1 J. B. Lock's b.g. Barkstone. 2 Cr. Layman's b.g. Swindler. 3 Morgan's ch. mare . 4 LADIE'S PURSE.   F. Guerin's Madam Rarey. 1 Malakoff. 2 G.

ON MANURE, STALL-FEEDING, FOLDING, &c. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

OS »&NTJBE, STALL-FEEDING, FOLDING, Ac. , (Australasian.) .. The all-importantmanure question has now been discussed for a length of time. The most economical modes of manuring <aret those to which Australian farmers pay most attention. It is a well authen- ticated fact, that manure made under cover is worth double in comparison with manure made in open yards. This im- portant particular should never be lost sight of in manure making ; the more it is exposed to the drying winds and sun the less viljable it becomes, owing to the ammonia and other essential components of the best manures been abstracted. The droppings of cattle at large in the fields are of very little value, being dried so much that at length nothing is left but the inert vegetable matter. A brief but important question is involved in this -How much is lost^in money-value in the manure of stock going'at large, from tlíé valuable salts' being returned to the manure and afterwards returned' to the la...

MADAGASCAR.—THE REV. W. ELLIS. (From the Patriot.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

MADAGASCAR.-THE RET. W. ELLIS. (From the Patriot.) The veteran missionary who fifty years ago left England for the South Seas, in the service of the London Missionary So- ciety, returned from Madagascar lately, and met a large number of town and country directors of the society, assembled for then* usual quarterly meeting at the Mission-house, in Blomfield-street. He must now number nearly seventy-five years of age. In 1816 he visited the islands of the Pacific, including the Sandwich group, and was occupied in missionary labours there till 1825. For the next fifteen years he served the society at home. The third period into which his missionary life divides itself has been principally occupied with the affairs of Madagascar. When, with brisk step and smiling face, he entered the room and took a seat by the side of Dr. Tidman, all rose to greet with applausive congratulations his spare but well-knit form, so familiar and so little changed as to excite the admiration alike of those w...

THE AMERICAN LADIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

THE AMERICAN LADIES. By Geobge Augustus Sala. Inside the States Hotel in New York you may smoke in two of the piazzas, but the third is a promenade exclusively for ladies, and such gentlemen as may be permitted to enjoy their society. lu this piazza there is an inner range of gallery, still above the basement row, on which open the windows of the private parlours. It is very charming to see the ladies sit- ting in the balconies, fluttering their fans and eating ice-creams. It is more charm- ing to hear their shrill prattle. It would be most charming, perhaps, to see them engaged in some kind of needle-work, even the most frivolous ornamental kind ; but the sprightly belles of Yankeedom very seldom take a needle between their delicate fingers, at least in public. I dare say they work like so many Penelopes at home, but neither crotchet, "application," nor embroidery is an avocation pursued out of doors. It is not the mode. I have peeped into a good many American house- holds, but I n...

TOODYAY. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

TOODYAY. (From a Correspondent.) A case of robbery occurred at Toodyay, on the 24th ult. attended with somewhat singular circumstances, if we are correctly informed. James Ford, an expirée, with another man, and a cart and team, went to the premises of a small farmer named Connor, and there stole nine bags of wheat and one of barley, with which they drove off. Connor howeTer got some inkling of what had taken place and went after them ; and Ford then presented a gun at him and told him to stand off; Connor took the matter very coolly and remonstrated with him, asking him " what use it was his doing that, as it would only make matters worse for him," and told him that he had much better take the wheat and barley back to where he had got it from. Ford actually did as "he was recom- mended, and of course the next thing was his apprehension and committal for the robbery. We are making a push here to establish a Mechanics' Institute, as we do not see why such a thing will not answer here...

THE GULF COUNTRY. (Northern Argus.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

THE GULF COUNTRY. (Northern Argus.) The "Gazette" of the lOfch October gives us official intelligence of the progress of settle- ment on the shores of the Gulf. We find by it that occupation licenses have been issued to hold runs amounting to two thousand and thirty-three square miles of unproclaimed country. The next " Gazette " will contain the names of our holders, and if the country is taken up at the present rate there will be none left on the Gulf for fresh adventurers. So rapidly has the country been taken up that many, too late to get runs on Queensland territory, have pushed out the border towards the Victoria River. The country now occupied stretches inland from the Gulf, comprising all the extensive watersheds of the Flinders, with its tributaries, the Saxby and Clocurry, the former on its right, the other on its left bank, the Leichhardt, the Albert, and the Nicholson, and extending to the Thompson and Barcoo Rivers. The largest lot .comprising 732 square miles has been ...

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

VICTOBIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) The Plains, whioh was never very well known as a sporting district* is. likely to. come out stronger in the racing line than it has ever pre- viously done, as I hear there are 4 or 6 horses in training for the Perth Eaces, where I trust they may win renown to themselves and profit to their owners, who would be encouraged by success this year to try their fortune at future meetings. A few days since we were bleBsed with about an hour's rain and we were in hopes that * we were going to have a heavy fall, but the «arth was only damped, and so were our hopes, by its ceasing in so short a time ; since then we have had hot, glowing days, and sweatnaeating nights. A settler here is about having some of his wells fitted with galvanized iron troughs* which, in my opinion, wül answer admirably for sheep, but will want strengthening in some manner to make them last any time for horses or cattle y no doubt that in time the galvanized iron troughs w...

DRAINING. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

DEAINESra. (From the Australasian.) In many early districts harvest will soon be over; every paddock will be cleared, and, perhaps, its yield thrashed by end of January, and at that time pre- parations for draining might be made, and the work commenced as soon after as possible in good earnest. W% wish the importance of the work was more appre- ciated by owners and occupiers of land ; its value has been long known in England -so much so, that even the Legislature deemed it of sufficient national importance to enact laws for the purpose of its en- couragement, and exempted " drain tiles" from duty. By many landlords in Britain the drain- ing is accomplished, and interest willingly paid by the tenants upon the capital in- vested. By others, the drain tiles are found only, the farmer layiag them down ; but there has been for years a universal desire on both sides to carry out thoroughly the process of draining, and such arrangements have always proved of mutual advantage. It is a well-...

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

(StßxxtsyavLbtnte.. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-In reply to the question which you put to me about the Cemetery, in the Gazette Sf W. A. Times of the 2nd instant, I have to say that it appears, so far as I can ascertain, that, in all cases of interments within the enclosure to which your question refers, the officiating person has been a Clergyman of the Church of England, or some one acting for him and using the Church of England Burial Service. It is not asserted that there have been no ex- ceptions to this rule : but, if there have been any such cases, they have been so rare and ex- ceptional, that, although I have made inquiry, I have not been able to obtain definite informa- tion about even one such case. But inasmuch as the enclosure referred to was for a long time during the early years of the colony, the only Cemetery used by the in- habitants of Perth and the vicinity, it must needs have happened that persons have been interred there by a Clergym...

THE TREES OF AUSTRALIA. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

THE TREES OF AUSTRALIA. (Australasian.) Lovers of trees do not appear to ex- pand into planters of trees, at least on this side of the globe; the cry appears more to be cut them down, clear them away; we want corn, we want grass. My good friends, there is what is called the balance of nature to be preserved. There is an all-wise law which governs terrestrial things, though some people cannot be brought to comprehend any such matter ; 'tis a stern fact nevertheless. However, our. task is not to try to convince anyone " against his will," but to have a.short talk^about "our" trees. The gums have been sadly abused on all sides. What nasty wood, only fit for the fire ; the carpenter turns'up his nose at it, it puts all his tools on edge ; 'tis like iron the " new chum" nearly breaks his heart in hammering at it, before he gets into the " way" of it. On the other hand, the wood of the Eucalypti is more durable than the oak when used for ship-building purposes, for which many of the speci...
