Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at he thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare. FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 March 1866

fttt& 6»¡lite # ». &. .(time*. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at he thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-^¡lakspeare. To the real Settlers of this colony-those whohave chosen it astheir permanent home -the home also of their children-a serious subject of consideration must be-what are to be the principal elements from which its future population is to spring ? Had there been any prospect of a con- tinuation for a long series of years of the importation of the felon class from the mother country, the question would have decided itself-we must have sat down contentedly with the prospects of seeing the sons and daughters of the middle classes grow up with nothing to associate withbut those sprung from the convictclass. Happily, as we think, a few years will now see us purged from that element, and we may hope that in future a purer class may be expected to seek our shores as a home. But are we to remain contented with the hope that such will be...

THE intelligence from the Eastern Colo- nies this month is not of very great in- terest, but of such as there is we give as full a summary as our vacant space will admit. The most interesting to us, com- mercially, is the great fall . which has taken place in the value of Flour in South Australia, occasioned by the ab- sence of all demand for it from the neigh- boring colonies. South Australian flour ha& usually been valuable in the Mel- bourne and Sydney markets for mixing purposes, but this year the arrivals from California and Chili have been very great and the quality unusually good, whereas the Adelaide flour, on the contrary, is stated to be of very poor quality, although many fine samples of wheat have been reaped. The collapse of the Adam Bay settle- ment must now be regarded as comp...

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

Cflragptthnw-e. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIE,-During one of my excursions into the country I was fortunate enough to fall in with an intelligent gentleman, who has formed a a project which must, if carried out, contribute largely to the advancement of the Colony. He was just on the point of forwarding a Memorial to His Excellency praying for government assistance. I explained to him the manner in which such projects are usually treated in the government offices, and that most probably he would receive no other answer to his valuable communication than the stereotype one-" H. E. could see no reason, &c, &c." I strongly advised him to give pub- licity to his valuable scheme through the medium of your excellent paper, before he made direct application to the Governor, and as there can be no doubt, that if it once becomes generally known what enormous advantages the Colony would derive from such a scheme, H. E. would, in a manner of speaking, al...

THE CEROTOCHTOA AUSTRALIS —A NEGLECTED NATIVE GRASS. (From the Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 March 1866

THE CEEOTOCHTOA AUSTRALIS * -A NEGLECTED NATIVE s GEASS. b -«.- ' ii (From the Adelaide Observer.) SIR-Hitherto it has been the practice to endeavour to naturalize European grasses in this country, and a great deal of money and trouble has been spent in vain on the effort. In our attempts to increase and improve the natural supply of feed, we have always resorted to European ideas, neglecting what the country itself has placed within our reach. I am safe to say that had one half the expenditure which gentlemen have gone to here in trying to reproduce English lawns in front of their houses, or Dutch meadows along our creeks, been laid out on improving native grasses, the drought would have been little felt com- pared with what it is. Instead of this the native grasses remain just as we found them-growing as they like and failing when they like. There has not even been an enquiry made into their qualities and habits. Now, farmers and scientific men living fifteen thousand miles away c...

THE CHILIAN BLOCKADE. (South Australian Register.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 March 1866

THE CHILIAN BLOCKADE. (South Australian Register.) The Chilian paper, La Patria, of the 28th September, Berengaria from Val- paraiso, gives farther details of the erra- tic movement of the Spanish fleet against Chili. They prove it to he merely a repe- tition of the ridiculous Peruvian demon- stration which the same power disgraced herself by a few months ago. These noisy young republics had the misfor- tune at one time to be colonies of Spain ; and the Bourbons, true to their family character of "never forgetting, never learning," still look uponthem as its de- pendencies. Though by no principle of in- ternational law can they claim greater au- thority over them than over the rock of Gibraltar, they take or rather make every opportunity they can to bully them. Under this system Spain has become famous for two things-bankruptcy on the ground of its home policy, and wanton aggression on weaker powers as the motto of its foreign ©ffice. "Not very long ago the English agriculturist was...

AGRICULTURE IN CHINA. (Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 March 1866

f, AGRICULTURE IN CHINA. )n (Adelaide Observer.) In the first place the Chinese do not cultivate ground for pastoral purposes or food-herbs for the sake of obtaining manure from the cattle ; they do not save or gather stable or yard manure ; and yet every field bears crops twice a year, and never lies fallow. Eckeberg says :-The wheat in China often bears a hundred and twenty fold and more." Davis reports :-" As a standard produce they calculate on fifteen-fold corn." Here I would remark that in this respect other circumstances prevail there than here. As the bulk of the Chinese are worshippers of Budha, they do not consume beef or mutton,' and therefore do not require to cultivate food for herds. However, this is not material, and I merely state this to prove that to cultivate food-herbs for the sake of gain- ing manure is a false principle which still obtains among the farmers. The Chinese only know two kinds of manure. The first is a manure from herbs ; the second nightsoil and c...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 March 1866

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. I The Victorian Government has invited the Governments of the other colonies to a Con- ference on the subject of the English mail con- tract, with a view to ending that now in opera- tion. The South Australian Government have given notice to the Home Government of their intention to terminate the P. and O. Com- pany's contract for the conveyance of the mails to and from Galle in two years. The drought in the Far North has partially broken up. Heavy rains are reported from several localities. Floods have prevailed in some places, which have caused serious losses amongst sheep. We have had nine days of very hot weather, during the month. Day after day the ther- mometer registered upwards of 103deg. in the shade. Pleasant showers have fallen in the neigh- bourhood of Adelaide, which have produced a sensible effect on the gardens and vineyards. The Parliament is still in session. The Government have carried their Bill through the Assembly to give concessions to the squa...

AMERICA. The diplomatic correspondence between France and the United States relative to the Mexican question has been presented to Con- gress.

THE political events of the month have been nil. We are still in a state of expectation, and pretty well tired of being so. Is the Home Ministry so entirely engrossed with its own Reform Bill that it has not time to attend to ours ? or, does the the Secretary of State find Mr. Samson's Protest so knotty a matter that he considers the best thing to be done is-to take no notice whatever of our momentous Petition and the queer decision arrived upon it, after the lucid exposition of the Attorney General as to the power given in the Constitu- tion Act to the Legislative Council to deal with it. Should the next mail from England be not more fruitful of intelligence respecting the mat- ter, we suspect that the great gathering of set- tlers in Perth next month will not pass over without some fresh action bein...

ARRIVAL OF THE OVERLAND MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 March 1866

AÍIHIVAL OF THE OYERLAND MAIL. THE most interesting, and at the same time the most melancholy, intelligence of the month's news, is that of the foundering of the steamer London, in the Bay of Biscay, on her voyage to Melbourne, with the loss of 220 lives out of 239 crew and passengers. It is impossible to read these various accounts of this calamity without feelings of commisseration and yet of admiration at the conduct of all on board the ill-fated vessel, from the moment at which it became evident that all hope must be abandoned. It brings to our recollection the memorable in- stances of the wrecks of the Birkenhead and the Marg Sands, when similar scenes of calm resignation were displayed, which although we may mourn the circumstances under which they occurred, the British people cannot but regard with pride and satisfaction, as bright trials in the national character. The general news is not very interesting. The English political intelligence does not ap- pear very promising fo...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 March 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) The usual remark from this will again be applicable to the district, that is-nothing of any importance to communicate this month. We have had slight falls of rain in many parts of the district, but not in sufficient quantities to be of any benefit to either agriculturist or grazier. The mines are on the whole looking satisfactory, if we may judge from the report» and a dead weight loading of ore is ready for the Morrison whenever that vessel may arrive. The sand in our town continues to be a public calamity, but under the management of our Resident, who is taking a most active part in the matter, we hope soon to see the last of it ; a cry has been made about a towntrust for Geraldton, but it has hitherto emanated from people who are not particularly interested, £koi course all rates would be levied on the vaIuÄ>f the improvements on the now so-called value- less blocks of land ; consequently the holders of "town lots" now complained of ...
