SAFETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 20 April 1866

SAFETY. One hundred lives are at once destroyed by a terrible explosion. Every eye turns to the scene. In the dark winding passage of the mine, an enemy has lurked, whose spring has been instant destruction. Accumulated hor- rors shock the senses. Instinctively we dread the hidden danger, more than an open foe, yet with strange perversity, we arm to meet the one, and refuse to guard against the other. The miner stands in the jaws of death, and despises security. The inevitable catastrophe comes, and horror is intensified by the reflection that the needless misery might have been averted by the use of one of the simplest little instruments in the world-the safety lamp. The explosion of fire-damp illustrates, with the clearness of chemical demonstration, the sudden combination of certain gases, and with precisely the same lucidity may be pointed out the lower but no less ruinous union of perni- cious and poisonous particles with the blood and bodily tissues, by which deleterious chang...

FVERYONE HIS OWN PHYSICIAN. HOLLOWAY'S PILLS. For a period of thirty years, in every country and clime (not even excepting China and Tartary,) these Pills have established for themselves a lasting renown, such as no medicine ever enjoyed before ; and nowhere, perhaps, have they been more appreciated than by settlers, Diggers, and Emigrants in the Australian Colonies. Weakness and Debility* How many persons suffer from debility without knowing the causes why they are feeble ! In most cases the stomach is, the aggessor. Holloway's Pills have long been famed for regulating a disordered stomach, ahd restorating its healthy digestive tone ; they are therefore con- fidently recommended as a never-failing remedy in all cases where the constitution, from any cause, has become impaired ox weakened. Diseases of the Head and Heart. These formidable diseases are, unfortu- nately, of frequent occurrence; for the most part they creep on gradually, but may be prevented by proper precautions.

THE NEWS BY THE MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 20 April 1866

TOE NEWS BY THE MAIL. PRIVATE letters give us several interest- ing items of intelligence, which have become public since our last issue. The expected vacancy in the office of Comp- troller General of Convicts is stated to have been offered to and accepted by Captain Grain, R.E., who only left this about three years since. There is no doubt this information is correct although the Governor has received no intimation of the fact, at which we are not surprised, as the appointment could not actually be made until Captain Newland's acceptance of leave of absence reached the autho- rities at home. We regret to hear Deputy Commissary General Bovell has received a private intimation that he may shortly expect to receive orders to go to China. Another convict ship, the Belgravia, had been chartered to convey 280 men, with a guard of 75 which probably includes the families of the Pensioners forming it. Mr. M'Cloud had chartered the ship Catherine to ship 2,500 sht ep at Guichen Bay, with whi...

NOTES ON THE CHEMISTRY OF HUSBANDRY. [From the Australasian.] No. IV. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 20 April 1866

NOTES ON THE CHEMISTRY OP HUSBANDRY. [From the Australasian.'] No. IV. Here we have proposed to devote a passing attention to some of the chief properties of the more important ele- ments ; before entering upon this, how- ever it will be necessary to distinguish between the accidental external condi- tions of matter and its internal founda tional characters. It is very common to speak of a solid, a fluid, or a gas, and to speak of these conditions as the three states of matter. We take fluid mercury, we freeze it or, on the other hand, we boil it, and thus we become acquainted with solid mer- cury, fluid mercury, and mercury gas ; and from experiences such as these it is not uncommon to infer that all bodies, under appropriate temperatures < can as- sume these three states. But in fact oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen, are, in the uncombined state, known only as gases; the application of intense cold and immense pressure enabled Faraday to reduce many bodies formerly known ...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 20 April 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our Correspondent.)   Easter Monday being generally observed throughout the civilized part of the Island of Australia as a day, for that noble and manly English game, called Cricket, the Elevens of Victoria and Bootnall met together, at the   latter named place, to play the last Match of the season. The day was all that could be desired, consequently both Elevens were in excellent spirits, anticipating a well-contested game. The Bootnall Eleven were the first to hand the   willow; and to the true and steady pitch of one of   the Victoria bowlers, the leather was amongst their wickets faster than they desired. The Victoria players then wielded the noble willow in defence of their stumps ; but they, like their friends before them, had to succumb to strange, and thorough good bowling, which the following score will show :   BOOTNALL. 1ST INNINGS Maley, b Smith O Doran, b Sainsbury 5 Pearson, not out 0 ...

Cara*pttb*îu*. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette # W. A. Times. SIR,-In setting aside annually a large pro- portion of the Public Revenue for the purpose of maintaining a numerous staff of Police, I pre- sume that both the Gvernment and the publiG expect some little show of service on the part of that body in return ; and though it is not my intention to remark upon the way such matters may be carried on in other places, simply be- cause I know nothing about it, yet, whether it is that we may take credit to ourselves for be- ing an uncommonly orderly and well-behaved community in this district, or whether it is the supineness on the part of the particular indivi- duals of the police force who have been culled out for our especial benefit, certainly they seem to do but little here in Newcastle but pass their time vacantly gazing at the door of either one or the other of the two public-houses in the town, which together wjlth the occasional cap- ture of a drunken man, as far as I hav...

o THE TIEN-TSIN HARBOUR e SETTLEMENT. /» rr mi ._ .__J_ it_ - _1_1_ A "... This is not the country for a large Company, because there is nowhere to be 1 found a very extensive district of good country all in one block. The good grazing country ia cut up here and there by ridges of spinifex hills and badly wateied, except in the small water- courses. In many places those who occupy, river frontages will command a great extent of back country. The weather is <warm at this season, and in fact all the year round, as one would expect to find it in a country situated , 4wo degrees to the equatorial side of the tropic of Capricorn. At this season the thermometer ia at noon from 90 ° to 103 °» seldom higher. The nights are cool, and we require a pair of blankets to sleep comfortably. By day we get a sea breeze, and I do not suffer more from the heat than I did in Victoria in hot summer.

ON BREAKING UP NEW LAND FOR CORN CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 April 1866

ON BREAKING UP NEW LAND fOR COEN CEOPS. In the breaking up of pasture ground for corn crops there is a most important item or two demanding consideration. It is usual to plough up new ground, and" without further preparation to sow the seed, for a crop. Now, in dry summers, when little rain falls to consolidate the ground, it lies too hollow-the roots fail to acquire . that firm hold upon the soil which they obtain in land which has been under cultivation for a few years. It follows that, when the critical period of the formation of the seed or kernel arrives, that process is a failure, more or less, To assist in the decay of the vegetable matter, and to impart firmness to new land destined for corn crops, it should be ploughed (broken up) the pre- vious spring. As no afterwork can be done when corn is once sown, there is no means of remedying the imperfect state of the soil beneath the surface. True, something may De done in the way of rolling in spring towards firming the sou. But...

With your permission, I beg to lay on the table speci- mens of the hitherto much-neglected grass-tree, or Xanthorea. Among them you will find a part of the outer husk or covering, in its natu- ral state, and small blocks of the gum prepared from the same.

SEED GRAIN. No. IV. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 April 1866

SEED GEAIN. No. IV. - ? [From the Australasian."] Victoria, with the exception of a few districts, is not a barley~growing colony ; not but that good barley can be grown in, many more places than have produced it, but still, compared with other grain, it occupies but little attention. A few acres for green-stuff, and other few for a little horse-foed, is nearly always the extent of barley culture on our farms. This is to be accounted for in more ways than one it has never, or very rarely, been a pay- ing crop ; the returns have usually beeu small, but not in consequence of the ground being unable to produce, but because barley, to be profitable, needs better treatment than one farmer out of twenty thinks of giving it. Barley of every description loves good tilth; the land upon which it is sown should be thoroughly well worked; no half mea- sures will do for barley ; the paddocks for this grain ought to be brought into a sort of ash-heap character^ It flourishes upon good land, well ...
