Japan. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

Japan. AFFAIBS in Japan are in a lamentable state. It seems that in August last the British Min- ister, Lieut.-Col. Neal, made a formal demand upon the Prince of Satsuraa to come to satis- factory terms. The Japanese authorities ap- pear to have been determined to shew their hostile spirit, and had prepared their batteries before the town of Kagosima to give the British men-of-war a warm reception whenever they should appear. On August 14th, as appears from the Overland China Trade Report, oí 26th September, the British Admiral, Kuper, left the Euryalus and embarked on board the gun- boat Havoc, accompanied by the Argus, Boee horse, Coquette, and Pearl. These vessels were off Kagosima. The authorities sent letters on board, bat they were not considered satis- factory, and negotiations were broken off. On the 15th the snips approached the batteries, and a heavy fire was opened upon i them. The English suffered a good deal, but destroyed a a great deal of Satsuma's private property in...

Bank Ane[?]dotes. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

Bank Anecdotes. ti A recent number of the Revue des Deux Mondes contains an interesting article by M. Alphonse Esquiros, on the Bank of England,'its origin, and progress, and present condition ; together with descrip- tions of its modes of operation in the three great branches of its business-the issue of bank notes, the management of the national debt, and its public and private banking. The article is replete with useful and interesting information. We take the liberty of extracting from it some of its anecdotal portions : SINGULAR USES OP BANK NOTES.-To- wards the end of last century, an English traveller, who had lost his way in the rich plains of Herefordshire, directed his horse towards, an humble cottage. There he observed a window, one of the broken panes of which had been replaced by the manuscript copy of an old ballad to inter cept the action of the wind; but by "the side of the ballad was pasted against the glass a banknote for ,£20 sterling. The ancient couple to whom t...

MITFORD.) y a a ii t ii a t, g Vi y s t] d t] e h Y, o d E g w VI p Ci si It ti a ci h h a di ONE of my friends, called Waldrich, who had not left the high school more than two years, had repaired to a provincial capital as unpaid judge assessor, just as the trumpets of the holy war were sound- ing. The war was undertaken for the liberation of Germany from the yoke of the French invader. A pious zeal, as is well known, animated every breast. " Freedom and Fatherland" was the bat- tle-cry in country and in town. The youths in thousands repaired joyfully to the banners ; German honours were at stake; and some ventured to hope on Herminius' ground, perhaps to realize a more noble existence in a return of the civilized and elevated conditions of an- tiquity. My dear Waldrich shared in this pious zeal and glorious hope. In short, he gave up his situation, and ex- changed the pen for the swor...

LANCASHIRE DISTRESS FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 November 1863

LANCASHIRE DISTRESS EUND. THE following letter has been received by the Rev. G. J. Bostock from Colonel J. Wilson-Patten: MY DEAR SIR.-I duly received your letter of the 21st. February, and would have replied to it sooner but was anxious to be able to announce to you in what way your contribution to the relief of Warrington distress* would be disposed of. I have now a letter from Mr. Cross, who has taken a most prominent part in the matter during the past year, in which he informs me that inasmuch as the Committee has closed its relief for the present, he thinks it best to place all contributions to the Distress Fund at Messrs. Parr's & Co. There is, I am sorry to say, but little doubt that this fund will be called upon next winter, for the prospect of any large additional sup- ply of cotton is still bad. We have got through the past year much better than most of our Lancashire towns, and have not yet gone to the Central Fund for assistance. It has been truly gratifying to u...

tot ilttstnliim ®ÍIMS. DISCITE JTJSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 19,1863. THE Governor is engaged on a visit to the Bunbury and Vasse districts, which he will see to advantage at this season of the year. These districts are of great importance to the Colony; hitherto they have re- ceived but little of the fostering care of the Government, and we shall not be sorry to learn that His Excellency's interest has been excited in them, and that he will think them deserving of a fair proportion of our Convict labour. We imagine that but little has yet been been done to the roads in either district. The most important feature of the Vasse district is Mr. YELVEBTON'S tim- ber-cutting station. This is important not only as furnishing a valuable item of our export trade, but also as providing employment for a considerable body of our ticket-of-leave population. The hiring depot is, we believe, situated at Bunbury, nearly thirty miles from the timber-station, and is conseq...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

York. ma to A STRAYED CHILD.-About a fortnight ago, a little girl, daughter of a respectable farmer in this neighbourhood, accompanied her brother into the bush, and happened to lose sight of him whilst he was attending cattl% The boy looked for his sister in vain, and then returned home, so that it was late in the evening before the alarmed parents could take up the search. The tracks were followed the next day for five miles along a road leading to the Mackie River. There the child left the road, and wandered through the bush a distance of fifteen miles. The tracks were lost, and the child was not found for three days, when it was discovered lying under a tree by a man named Clarke, who was accidentally passing that way on his road to the farm of Mr. W. Robins. Great praise is due to Mrs. Clarke for her kind atten- tion to the exhausted infant until it was re- stored to its anxious parents. The appointment of new Magistrates an- nounced last week has given much satisfaction in thi...

Rebic[?]s of Recent Works. The Angler-Nakiralist; by H. C. Pennell. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

|Äfos at |tot Moth. The Angler-Nakiralist; by H. C. Pennell. MB. PENNELL has devoted considerable space to the Pike family. His observations on this fish have evidently been numerous j but he leaves the perplexing fact that Pike suddenly appear in ponds where this fish has never been seen before, still far from being explained. There is, however, no doubt that pike, like eel, travel in wet weather, or when the grass is saturated with dew, from one pond to another j and here are three anecdotes strikingly confirm- atory of their locomotive habits : FISH ON THEIB TBAVELS.-" Mr. Newenham, an English resident at Antwerp, in order to test the migratory theory, caused two con- tiguous ponds to be excavated, and stocked one with Pike, and the other with small Roach, Dace, &c. At the end of the second day, he caused both ponds to be emptied, when it was found that several of the Pike from pond No. 1 had made their way by some means to pond No. 2, and had destroyed a great part of th...

Doings at Bunbury. (From our own Reporter.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

Doings at Bunbury. (From our own Reporter.) THE AGRICULTURAL SHOW and its attendant festivities have come off most satisfactorily. The Governor and party arrived at Austra- lind on the evening of Tuesday, the 17th, and remaining at Upton House that evening pro- ceeded next morning to Bunbury. His Excel- lency was met by the Resident, accompanied by upwards of seventy of the most respectable inhabitants, well mounted, who formed, for this district, an imposing cavalcade. The whole party, after passing under the triumphal arch erected at the entrance to the town, saluted His Excellency with several rounds of cordial cheers, and left the party to the hospitalities of the Resident Magistrate and his lady at Bury Hill. At 12 o'clock His Excellency and Mrs. Hampton, the Private and Colonial Secretaries, and Mi', and Mrs. Eliot proceeded to the Show ground. The gathering of the inhabitants was re- spectable. The general show of the several kinds of stock was excellent : and several of the ...

The Open Column. THE STEAM SAW-MILLS, VASSE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

Ojï* ©jrw (íalmu. THE STEAM SAW-MILLS, VASSE. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-I was lately astonished to read in the Inquirer and Commercial News of November 11 that " Mr. Yelverton has " been obliged to close his station for the "present, because he cannot afford to "pay the present high rate of labour "until he receives further orders for " timber." Now H. Yelverton has not closed his station, and H. Yelverton has no intention of closing his station. As for waiting for further orders, H. Yel- verton has got as many orders as he can well attend to. Now, I giye my men good wages, but I don't say they are too high. And I don't think so. I have taken eleven or twelve additional hands last month, in consequence of the in- creased amount of orders. Such state- ments might be very injurious, and mer- chants and the public might be led into error, I should therefore feel obliged by your publishing this in your next Times, which is read (and with much pleasure) by all about here.

FURTHER ACCOUNTS FROM BUNBURY. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

FURTHER ACCOUNTS FROM BUNBURY. (From a Correspondent.) On the morning of the Show, the Governor was met about three miles from Bunbury by a large body of the settlers, headed by the Resi- dent Magistrate, who escorted His Excellency into the town - at the entrance to which a triumphal arch hod been erected, surmounted with the inscription "WELCOME TO HAMPTON." The Governor and Mrs. Hampton, and the Colonial and Private Secretaries next proceeded to the Show Ground ; and the horses having been brought into the enclosure, were all walked round in a ring, so that everybody had an opportunity of looking at and criticising them. The number of horses shown in each class, their superior quality, and their splendid condition were sources of surprise and admira- tion to everyone present. The quality of the other stock shown was also of a most superior description. One of the most attractive fea- tures at this show, especially for ladies, was the display of vegetables, for the growth of which...

REPORT OF THE WELLINGTON, NELSON, AND MURRAY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

REPORT OP THE WELLINGTON, NEL SON, AND MURRAY AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. IN laying before you the 1st Report of this Society, the Committee think that it would be well to state shortly the reason for its forma- tion, independent of, and distinct from, that known as the Southern Districts Agricultural Society, to which the majority of our members originally belonged. Last year a very general wish was expressed by those settlers residing at a distance, and also by those gentlemen living at Perth and Fremantle having business transactions with us, that for the future the Show should be held permanently at Bunbury, that being the most central position, and a more accessible and convenient place to which stock could be driven; great inconvenience having been experienced in this latter respect when the Meeting took place at the Vasse. A meet- ing of the Wellington Bettlers accordingly took place, to consider the advisability of holding the Annual Show at Bunbury, instead of alter- nately at th...

THE HOMBURG GAMING HOUSE, AND WHAT IS DONE THERE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

THE HOMBUEG GAMING HOUSE, g AND WHAT IS DONE THEEE. SI About ten miles north of Frankfort-on-the Maine lies Homburg on the Hill. This well built little town has the honour of being the capital of a land a few square miles in size, and combines with the advantages which its quality as a residency gives it the further merit of being possessed of curative springs. Persons with diseased livers and deranged stomachs who visit these waters find, in addition to the plea- sant landscape, a chateau with an extensive garden, promenades in the vicjnity of Kursaal, a pretty street called the Luisentrasse, and a band, which plays the march from Tannhauser or the overture to Der Freischütz, while the guests imbibe the waters. But it is not to these sources of amusement, or even to the waters, that Homburg owes its reputation. The thing that attracts thousands on thousands to a town which is as quiet aa death except during the watering-season is the board of green cloth in the Kursaal. The bank is...

Intellec- tual, witty, frank, a good narrator, learned with the learned, an artist with artists, he designed well, he played the piano and flute to perfection, and danced charmingly; girls and women alike ad- mitted that he was a handsome, versatile, but, at the same time, a very dangerous young man. What the danger exactly consisted in, none of these fair ones had been precisely able to define, or whether it was increased or diminished by his modest demeanour. At that time, however, no one in the little town thought of making him or her- self agreeable or otherwise, nor dreamed of making conquests, or being conquered. Every one rather guarded her heart with unwonted care. The cause of this re- serve, one unacquainted with ...

eux iiuli %MIMV. No. rx. [Present-Our DEPÜIT-SUB-EDITOR and ADMIRAL WOBBLES, who for a long time puff away in silence."] MR. DEPUTY-There is a sense of lone- liness, Wobbles, in this place, that hangs upon one oftener than I like. It seems to me that we are deserted even by Miss Crump and Sprouts. MR. WOBBLES-The young leddy has taken up her quarters at Rummer's Hotel. The constant noise and bustle of the main street were too much for her poor nerves, and she could not sleep well at nights in the crowded establishment there. In fact she called Mr. Hicks up twice between one and two o'clock a.m., thinking there was a man in the next room. He were precious glad when she went off, I can tell you. MR. DEPUTY-The, poor thing has an unaccountable horror of mankind. MR. WOBBLES-She calls it a natterai terror ; for men, she says, ai-e always brutes. MR. DEPUTY-And what has become of Sprouts ? MR.
