THE CULTIVATION OF TOBACCO. (COMMUNICATED.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 April 1866

THE CULTIVATION OF TOBACCO. (COMMUNICATED.) ** Sublime tobacco, which, from east to west, Cheers the tar's labour, and the Turkman's [rest." As I think it unlikely that any inform- ation relative to the cultivation of this plant may prove interesting to some of your readers, I forward you the following article, written by a gentleman, a native of Virginia, upon this subject, who has had considerable practical experience in the matter : THE CULTIVATION AND CUBING OFTOBACCO. He specially recommends the following sorts of tobacco as being well adapted for our climate, which has, in fact, been taught us already by experience :-Vir- ginia and Kentucky are placed first in the list, next to these Florida and Con-' necticut, whilst for the manufacture of cigars, the finer kinds, Havannah, Cuba, and Turkish, are well adapted. As regards the soil, the best in flat or low country is a loamy or rich sandy soil; but if on a slope of a hill the aspect should be due east, a red loam is best, and i...

At the meeting referred to, the Hon. Secre- tary read a resolution which was published in four report of the meeting. It was not carried, ut not in consequence of these being a dispo- sition among the landholders present to inter- fere in any way with the well-doing of the small farmers, but simply owing to there being a dif- ference of opinion as to the manner of applying for assistance for them. In opposing the reso- lution I stated as my opinion, that if any of the small farmers require seed wheat I thought they might obtain it by applying to the Govern- ment Resident, who would forward the appli- cation to the Governor, feeling ...

PRESERVING OF FRUITS. (From the Queenslander.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 April 1866

PRESERVING OF FRUITS. (From the Queenslander.) One of the greatest hindrance to the profitable cultivation of fruit in Queens- land at the present time, is the want of a market for its ready disposal ; for of course when ripe it must be at once sold, very likely in an overstocked market, or its destruction and total loss to the grower is an inevitable consequence. We have no reason to wonder that such should be the case, as the quantity of fruit grown in the colony is rapidly get- ting out of all proportion to the quantity consumed, although the case might be different were it possible to spread the supply-of peaches or of grapes, for in- stance-over double the period in which they are now brought to town. At the present time grapes, even of good quality, are a drug in the market, and are being hawked about at ed, per lb., or, as the day advances, at whatever can be got for thenu The supply grown near town has been quite sufficient to supply the legitimate demand, and as they are fi...

It still appears that, with two or three exceptions, the members present at the Meeting, if they did not oppose the proposition did not sup- port it. We have since learned that Mr. Dummond was the only speaker against the motion, and he tells us that it fell to the ground because there was a differ- ence of opinion as to how assistance was to be asked for ; it is, therefore, apparent that the members were fully alive to the necessitous situation of their unfortunate poorer neighbors, indeed it eould not be otherwise, as we are told there was at the time on...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-I trust you will make room in your paper for a few words in reply to Mr. Chidlow's letter accusing me of very unneighbourly con- duct. In the first place, Mr. Chidlow is aware that I have a great objection to his sending Lilly over my land under any pretence whatever. Secondly, the case brought into Court was only one out of many, and though perhaps the least offensive was the one most easily proved at the time. Thirdly, the account given by Mr. Chidlow is totally wrong. How far Mr. Chidlow has been misled lies be- tween him and his conscience ; I can only say that previous to going to the Post-office on Saturday, I called on Mr. Chidlow (knowing nothing about his letter in the Gazette), when he told me that Lilly was such a liar he could not believe a word he said. I will not encroach by touching upon other matters, but will confine myself to the case in hand. First, the horses were not brought from Mr. Burges' land ; had it b...

KING GEORGE'S SOUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

KING GEOBGE'S SOUND. ^ A Correspondent writing on the 21st ult., has favored us with the following account of the construction and lunching of a large float- ing dock, at Albany, for the P. & 0. Company's service : As I have occasionally seen references in your Albany Correspondent's letter to the floating dock, building for the P. & 0. Com f>any. I think you may possibly be glad to earn some particulars of what 1 believe to be the largest craft yet built in the Colony. At the recommendation of Mr. W. C. Clifton, the P. & 0. Company's Agent at King George's Sound, in the year 1862, four iron lighters (of 120 tons burthen) were sent out in sections, and built there, the last of which was launched in April, 1864; and as it was clear some provision must be made for cleaning and repairing these lighters as well as the hulk King Usher, Mr. Clifton pointed out to the Company that either a patent slip or a floating dock would be necessary. The peculiar nature of ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. T SIR,-Allow me a space in your journal to mention what I consider to be a fallacy. Those who advocate the passing of a Scab Act vir- tually put the case thus We have for years past been attempting what we consider a duty not only to ourselves but to our neighbours-to keep our sheep clear from disease, but we find ourselves continually thrown back by the acts .of careless, vicious, or incapable men; we now petition for Legislative action to compel these men to do their duty, but as a preliminary step, we ask for the benefit of these people who have placed us in difficulty, that a bonus should be given THEM, to the ex- tent of a repeal of the duty on leat tobacco. In my humble opinion the two things should be considered separately. The duty upon sheep tobacco is a moral evil, and therefore cannot be politically right, indirectly it is cruelty to dumb animals, and financially a positive loss to the revenue, and upon these grounds and t...

RECENT EXPLORATIONS. No. VI.—NORTH AUSTRALIA. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

RECENT EXPLORATIONS. By the Rev. J. E. Tennison Woods, F.G.S., F.L.S., &c.       No. VI.-North Australia. [From the Australasian.] The exploration of North Australia has taken just now a very decided turn for the better. It was the favourite ground for ex- plorers once, whether Portuguese, Dutch, or English ; but then it fell into disrepute, and no man, except Mr. Earl, was found to say a word in its favour after the Port Essington failure. Old officers who liad a keen recol- lection of the hurricanes, the earthquakes, and the men who had died of ague or ration rum, as well as of their own sufferings, under that complicated ailment of nothing to do, too much lo eat, hot weather, bad grog, mosquitoes, and no society, always spoke of Port Essington with horror. I remember well meeting with a gentleman who had spent some time there, and I was forced to conclude from his description that there could be only one place worse than it, though m...

THE PROPOSED SCAB ACT. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

THE PROPOSED SCAB ACT. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-Meetings have taken place, and a great deal has been said on this subject, but no satis- factory conclusion arrived at. To cut a long etory short, the present Act carried out with economy and prudence is the best. My opinion relative to a Scab Act in the York district is simply this-that the Magis- trates carry out the present Act which, if I do not misunderstand, says:-"If complainant brings a charge against any flock-owner tres- passing and it is proved, the defendant is liable to a fine of from J610 to ¿850." If I do not misunderstand the Act, all we re- quire, will be, for the Magistrates to be em- powered to fine from ¿£10 to ¿850. I wül now give my opinion relative to In- spector and his duties. He must be a man ap- pointed by the votes of the members of the Agricultural Societies of each district, an inde- pendent man not open to currying favor ; also, a practical man, not afraid ta handle sheep or...

QUEENSLAND. CURING MEAT BY DR. MORGAN'S PATENT PROCESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

QUEENSLAND, CUBING MEAT BY DE. MOBGAN8 PATENT 1 FBOCESS. i We alluded some time ago to the fact that Mr. Davis, from Adelaide, purchaser of Dr. Morgan's patent for preserving meat, bad taken premises at Town Marie, on the Bremer River, abo.ut six miles from Ipswich, and that the operation of curing had been commenced. Having since then visited Mr. Davis's estab- lishment, and witnessed the mode of working the patent, we are enabled to furnish our readers with some account of the process. As' is now prett}" generally known, the Morgan patent consists in emptying and washing out all, even *he minutest blood-vessels of an animal while the carcase is still warm, and afterwards filling the same with brine. This is done in a very simple and expeditious man- ner, and the meat thus cured is very different indeed in flavour, consistency, and general ap- pearance, from that which has undergone the old andmore tedious process of salting. We saw five beasts killed and cured iu about an hoar at ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 May 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. DEAS SIE,-I have read attentively the pub- lished proceedings of the meeting of Delegates held at Perth on the 13th instant, respecting the Scab Act j and as I am certainly much con- cerned in the matter, I beg you will give me space in your columns for a few observations. There can be no doubt as to the desirability of getting rid of the scab from among our flocks ; -that everyone desires,-and Mr. Burges was right, to a certain extent, when he said every sheep-farmer felt the necessity of a Scab Act. But the delicate and difficult task is, to frame such an Act that shall assist in preventing and keeping down scab, without being oppressive, and a greater loss and vexation to the flock owner than the scab itself. Very sensible were Mr. Brockman's remarks at the meeting. The colony is not in a position to bear such restrictions as those contemplated in the resolutions put forward at the meeting. My opinions are not formed from Mr. Bro...
