THE WRECK OF THE STEAMER "LONDON." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 March 1866

THE WRECK OP THE STEAMER "LONDON." The London came to an anchorage inside the breakwater at Plymouth at 1 p.m. on the 4th, and daring the afternoon took on board those of her first and second-class passengers who had arranged to join the ship at Plymouth. At midnight on Friday, the 5th, she proceeded on her voyage, the weather being at this time calm, with a light wind ahead. She had full steam on during the whole of Saturday, the 6th, and the voyage proceeded very satisfactorily until Sunday morning, the 7th, when the wind increased, and a head sea gradually rose. During this day the London passed several ships, and nothing occurred to create the smallest uneasiness in the minds of any of the officers of the vessel. During Sunday night the wind increased to a gale and the sea rose considerably. On the morning of Monday, the 8 th, the ship was well clear of the land, and Captain Martin having ordered the engines to be stopped, set his topsails and so endeavored to keep the ship movi...

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

Corrapufrw^ To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,- I have been very unwilling to inflict upon your numerous readers, a note of only local interest, but I have friends amongst them, to whom, a reply to a letter, in which I am complained of, inserted in your journal of Feb. 23, will not be unacceptable. In that letter I am charged with wilfully neglecting my duty. I am much mistaken if the facts of the case jus- tify such a serious accusation. Up to the time of my leaving home for Perth on Monday, Jan. 15, no intimation had been given to me, or the Sex- ton, by the undertaker, or any one concerned, that our late respected neighbor Mr. Giblett, was dead. I was indeed informed by my serv- ant on Sunday afternoon that he had been told by a person that it was said that Mr. G. died on Sunday morning, and I took pains to ascertain the truth of it, but found reason to believe that Mr. Giblett was still living. It is true that I had not travelled many miles to- wards ...

NOTES ON THE CHEMISTRY OF HUSBANDRY. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

NOTES ON THE CHEMISTRY OP HUSBANDRY. No. I. Let us commence at the very begin- ning, or rather let usgo to the very founda- tion of our subject, with full faith that all will come right as we progress. Let the intelligent reader take a rule, a bradawl, a pencil, and a ball of twine, and proceed- ing to a moderate-sized apartment, let him thrust the bradawl into the skirting board at the centre of one of the walls of the room ; let him now measure off eight feet of the twine, and with the bradawl as a centre and this as a radius, let him draw a half circle, terminating in the floor line. This half circle will represent half a globe of sixteen feet of diameter, and this may be taken for a hemisphere of the earth of 8,000 miles diameter, on a scale of two feet for a thousand miles. This diagram will now assist us to a clear conception of one or two ideas with which we will pre- sently be concerned. If we now from the same centre, strike a half circle exter- nal to the first, measuring ...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

J MISCELLANEOUS. The Chancellorship of the Duchy of Lancaster having been accepted by Mr. Göschen, M.P., the office of Vice-President of the Board of Trade has, of course, become vacant. No suc- cessor to the hon. gentleman in the latter post has been nominated. Her Majesty has been pleased to advance Sir Roderick Murchison to the dignity of a baronet, " in recognition of distinguished merit and attainments." The Queen has conferred a baronetcy on Pro- fessor Simpson, the eminent Edinburgh physi- cian. The wedding of Princess Helena with his Serene Highness Prince Christian of Augusten burg will, it is anticipated, take place in June next. It is thought that the sum of £60,000, inde- pendent of an annual income to the Princess Helena, will be asked tor her royal highness's marriage. It is said that Sir E. Landseer will succeed Sir C. Eastlake as president of the Royal Academy. The salary of the office is £300 a year. - On Meaghers Bar, opposite Nevada (accord- ing to a Californian p...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our Correspondent.) A great misfortune has happened to the Geraldine Mine. Some natives reported that the river was coming down, and shortly after- wards the roar of the advancing water was distinctly heard ; all haste was made to clear the mine, should it unfortunately prove that the river ran so high as to get in and down the works. It was lucky this precaution was taken, as there was hardly time to get the men and tools out before the water came down in great force with a frontage of four feet in height, and afterwards increased $o that it is now nearly five feet above the head of the shaft* Although this accident puts a stop to all ore-getting for the present, there is suffi- cient grassed to keep the men in employment for some weeks. We have had a very pleasant fall of rain on the coast line, but I fear it has not advanced far enough inland to do much good for the sheep runs. However what there was of it was very acceptable. For some months past the cutter "...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-I am inclined to offer a reward of JB5 to any one who will furnish a return of the estimate of cost of all the public works and other schemes, for which government assistance has been applied for during the last twelve months, as I believe that it would be highly in- structive to compare such a return with the actual surplus in the Treasury Chest. I cannot help thinking that it will be* much wiser to spend the public money in opening communications between the interior and the nearest harbors, and make the harbors them- selves as safe as possible for shipping, than to inrest any part of it, even a small one, in such a scheme as founding an Oysterbank at Rott- nest. If the craving for ¿this delicious shell- fish is becoming so strong in Perth and Fre- mantle, that it must be satisfied, I have no doubt that private capital will find it a good investment. To apply any of the public funds for such a purpose would I fear prove very u...

SEED GRAIN. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

SEED GRAIN (Australasian.) As the time for sowing our cereals is ap- proaching, a word or two on the subject may not be amiss, especially to those who, under the new Land Act, have lately taken the title of farmers. We assume that the past and present satisfactory prices obtained for wheat and flour will create a more active inquiry for good seed wheats than usual, and one of the first objects of an agriculturist ought always to be to obtain the best of everything, whether horses, cattle, sheep, implements, or seeds. A good beast consumes no more food than a bad one ; it is far better and more satisfactory to use a first class machine or implement; and certainly more profitable to grow superior yielding grain. Many may rightly say, "Wheat is wheat;" but what a difference does a careful practical farmer find at harvest time in the yield of grain shown in its most suitable soil. Let any of our new agriculturists previous to any important operation, especially such as sowing seeds, spe...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR, - I see by an advertisement that the Committee of the Swan River Mechanics' In- stitute have determined to close the Library from the 1st to the 14th of April, for the purpose of taking stock of the Books, &c. I think you will agree with me that, even if the proceeding was necessary at any time, a more unfortunate period could scarcely have been selected than when the Supreme Court holds its Criminal Sittings, and the Western Australian Races take place - surely at such a time all our lions, of which we unfortunately possess so few, should be open for the inspec- tion of our country Cousins. I was present on Monday evening last, when one of the members guaranteed to the Com- mittee that he would, with the assistance of another, take the stock, &c., in two days with- out closing the Library at all, which offer strange to say was not accepted ; pray use your influence to prevent such unusual proceedings.

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-Would you be so kind^as to'allow me a small space in your valuable collona? I should like to know very much if the * Water' Police duty is to cut firewood and draw water for the Supertendant, if so, I think it is not right for Police to do such work when their is not more than six or seven to do the duty. If they can do their duties and cut firewood all very well but I think it is not the thing, as also whether the prisoners ware sent from Eng- land under the idea that they ware to feed pigs and cows and cut firewood and grow garden stuff and do other work as washing bottles for other officils private use, when their is so many men unimployed about the towns and are glad to earn a shilling to buy bread to eat, and things as regards work is scarse. I should like to see it altered for the benefit of the working man. I remain, your obedient sairvent, LABOURER. Fremantle, 28th March, 1866.

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

Correspondence To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. DEAR SIR,—In your issue of 23rd Feb., 1866, I see, by an extract of Dr. Mueller's, I am made to say that 3 mounted men with 4 pack horses, 7 in number, entered (without dis- mounting) the hollow of a Karri Gum tree. This is a mistake originating either with Dr. Mueller or in your office ; 3 gentlemen and 1 Sack-horse did so, one of the parties being Mr. Davis, who is my authority in, the matter. I shall feel obliged if you will rectify the error, as it will appear a most glaring and wilful ex- aggeration of what has become a pretty well known fact. The measurements are correct Mr. Maitland Brown and myself measured one tree (by stepping) 201 feet to first limb, about 5 feet diameter at least, and 3 at that height, close to my house ; and near it is afine healthy tree of about 10 feet diameter at 6 feet from ground, carrying an even trunk for a great height ; its estimated size at about 180 feet is about 6 feet,...

THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA. (FROM THE BRISBANE GUARDIAN, JAN. 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 March 1866

THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA. (from the brisbane guardian, Jan. 17.) Memorandum by Mr. Lamb, the Chief Commis- sioner of Crown Lands in Queensland, re- specting the country at the head of the Gulf of Carpentaria. It will not be out of place, at the commence- ment of this paper, to refer briefly to the rapid extension of pastoral occupation during the last four years in the northern portions of the colony of Queensland, over an area equal to that of France. It seems like a marvel, as we look back for a few short years-and review the position of the territory now forming the colony of Queens- land, and compare it with its present state. A large portion was unknown. The small belts of country that surrounded the tracks of some of the intrepid Australian explorers on the maps ot the continent gave little indication of the future suitability of the north for stock, beyond surmise, which promised years for its realisation. In the year 1861, there were in that portion -of the colony lying north...
