THE BARRIER REEF. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

THE BARRIER REEF. (Australasian.) .w I saidin my last eommunication that 'r^^'VïfeOT^-':'Beef is a very paradise for naturalists. At any rate, I do riot know of any physical feature in all Australia which interests one so much. To think of this huge wall acting as a breakwater for a thousand miles against the waves of the Pacific V It is so steep and abrupt that it can he compared to nothing but a wall,and a wall whose »foundations are so fiteep that seldom ca,n anv soundings be 'Sofetained on the outside. Seven and eight thousand feet of line have been run oat: iiito the dark-blue swell outside the breakers, but the feet of these ? ocean mountains could not be reached. \ And thus ihe migihty waters of the Pacific Ï'^á^¿^;»ud fra^^rc^ slowly forward ^¡iflmjÈD^^às^:cf ^-obstacle, until all eäfrlöi^itneyv are upborne ni breaking Ijnaoao*;lplfawful ¿grandeur against^ the h «id^¿leiidB, them sullenly back to the - tMiÍ3FukelWe8crilfe l^f^kers with admirable expression, i He . ^o^nftgfld...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 May 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ty W. A. Times. SIR,-Probably the indignation of our com- munity was never before raised to such a pitch as it has been by the monstrous act of Governor Hampton in appointing his son to the office of Acting Comptroller-General, and perhaps no " Leader" ever appeared in the columns of your paper which more truthfully expressed the pub- lic sentiment than that in your last issue com- menting upon this appointment ;-for high and low, rich and poor, almost without a single ex- ception, entirely and unanimously concur with your remarks, and how, in opposition to the strong feeling that prevails, your contemporary could put forward that rhodomontade which appeared in his issue of yesterday, it is difficult to understand. Had we possessed the Representative Govern- ment for which we have petitioned, the Governor would not have dared to use his power in this matter for the mere pecuniary benefit of his family, in defiance of what he must have known would b...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette S¡ W. A. Times. SIE,-Knowing that you are always ready to support the public interest, I beg leave through the medium of your valuable journal to make a few remarks, as it is the only way we have to make our wants and grievances known in a dis- trict like ours. On the 1st instant there was a meeting at Wilding's Hotel, to consider as to the best lines of road that could be laid out, leading to the back stations, for the benefit of the public. There were several useful lines pointed out, and agreed to without a dissenting voice ; but sud- denly there was a great change in the business of the day, there being a line pointed out, that led through a field belonging to Mr. F, Mor- rell, who had come with his backers to fight it out, whether right or wrong, that no road should go that way. When, after a long dis- cussion, it was put to the vote, the result was 4 to 4, after which it was seen who the surveyor was in favor of, though the desired line of ro...

LONDON WOOL REPORT.—MARCH 24, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

LONDON WOOL REPORT.-MAECH 24,1866. < _ E The sales, which commenced on the 1st inst., terminated this day. The quantities catalogued comprised-7395 bales, Sydney ; 44,428 bales, Port Phillip ; 202 bales, Van Diemen's Land ; 549 bales, New Zealand ; 11,492 bales, Adelaide ; 817 bales, Swan River; 20,398 bales, Cape; total, 85,281 bales. At the opening sale less excitement was manifested than might have been expected from the eagerness to purchase prior to the sales, but the large arrivals and partial supply of im- mediate requirements caused a quieter tone, and prices opened about Id. to 2d. on Novem- ber rates j the greatest advance being paid on Sydney fleece, middle, scoured, and faulty wools generally. Prices rather hardened for the first week, from the enormous attendance of buyers -the largest ever seen-all wanting a few bales; so soon, however, as moderate wants were supplied the room was thinner attended, and prices since have been rather in favour of buyers, more ...

THE REFORM BILL OF 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

THE REFORM BILL OF 1866. In moving for leave to bring in the Minis- terial Reform Bill, Mr. Gladstone stated that the Government were sensible of the weight of responsibility which attached to them, but that responsibility was not theirs alone, but was shared by the whole House of Commons, and by every section and political party in it. Both sides of the House had solemnly pledged them- selves to deal with the subject, and there was an accumulation of authority in its favor which made any debate on the general question super- fluous. The Government, after a full consi- deration of the subject, had resolved to con- fine themselves to a bill for the alteration of the electoral franchise, and not to attempt to deal with such collateral matters as secret voting, short Parliaments, or even the re-distribution of seats. In 1860 the proposal was to reduce the county franchise from £50 to £10 ; but in the present case the Government proposed to modify that plan and, to reduce the county fra...

THE LATE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

THE LATE JAMAICA OUTBREAK. The royal Commission of Inquiry commenced their labors on January 25. and were expected to terminate their sittings on March 7. They have examined a great many witnesses, and among them His Excellency Governor Eyre, whose testimony was looked forward to by the whole country with great anxiety. So far however, the oral and documentary evidence he has given before the commission has not ad- vanced him one step beyond the position in which he was placed by his despatches to the Secretary of State. The commission have de- clined to allow the barristers, Messrs. Gorrie and Payne, to cross-examine witnesses. These gentlemen appeared to be on behalf of Mrs. Gordon and others. The occurrences of the first three days, that is the outrages committed by the negroes, have been fully established, with the exception that many of the stories about the mutilation of the bodies of the murdered gentlemen have not been supported-such, for instanco as the Baron Ketteldhodt's ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Time». SIR,-In one of the columns of your contem- porary's issue, of Wednesday last, I perceived a letter signed " Clotho" advocating a second Jetty in our Port, to be situated near the Go- vernment Depot ; this I consider necessary, yet at the same time cannot refrain from remarking that we had far better see the present Jetty completed, ere we entertain the idea of another. Yours faithfully, ONEAR. I Geraldton, May 7,1866..

FREMANTLE. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

FREMANTLE. (From a Correspondent.) . Monday afternoon was quite a holiday in Fremantle, for the purpose of witnessing a very interesting Cricket Match, between an eleven from H .M.S. Falcon, and an eleven in Fre- mantle. The wickets were to be pitched at 10*30, but owing to some unavoidable cause, the eleven from the ship were not able to play until 1*30, which tbus left little time for the game. The Fremantle who in this match were honoured with two of their Perth brethren, were the first to handle the willow, sending to the wickets Cooper and Marmion, who had to encounter the bowling of Messrs. Reade and Pesscott, which did not at first prove very effective, both men scoring freely, but Marmion making a false stroke, was caught by Pesscott, with a score of 10. One wicket and 2i runs. (x. Knight did not score, being given out leg before wicket, the first ball. Two wickets and 24 runs. E. Ashton followed and was more successful, but presently Cooper fell a victim, to the improved bo...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) The Quarterly Meeting ot the Agiicultural and District Society of this place, was held at Baston's Hotel on Wednesday, the 2nd, and as matters of importance were to be laid before the meeting nearly every member was present. Mr. L. C. Burges being voted to the Chair explained to the members the object of the present meeting, and congratulated the Society on the good attendance which of itself was more than half a guarantee of success. He urged upon them to lay aside anything like private feeling or local interest, and endeavor in all their decisions to bear in mind that they were, to a certain extent, the mouth-pieces of their different districts, and were responsible to the people for what they did in this meeting. He reminded them of the great benefit that must arise if a Society like this was properly con- ducted, as it represented the people to a great extent, and every member was in duty bound to vote for any measure that to him appea...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

Coraspnimu*. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. À> Times. DEAR SDî,-Having carefully perused the letters of Mr. John Tayler and Mr. James Brown, both of this district, I cannot bût concur with the opinions and expressions of both those gentlemen, relative to the late "Scab Act" proposed on the 13th of April last. ~ Such stringent fines are not at all adapted for this colony where sheep are kept in such small numbers by each squatter, in comparison with those in the Southern and Eastern Colonies. Two or three fines such as proposed 13th April last should they fall upon one individual, which is quite possible, would be the means of his handing over the whole of his flock to the Inspector, and cutting his stick, that is, if the merchant would admit of such a proceeding. And T further think it very possible that some of those so ripe for this stringent Act, would be the first to drag fifty pounds out of their pockets without scruple or sigh of course. We want no new " Scab Act,...

Holloways Pills.-The Best Friends. When bad health overtakes mankind, what would not be given to be free from it ? Hollo- way presents to all invalids the means of re- covering their health and renewing failing strength for a mere trifle. His Pills invariably produce the most satisfactory result where the digestion, circulation, or nerves are at fault. The Pills pui'ify the blood, balance its circulation, strengthen the stomach, induce healthy action in the liver, and overcome all painful affections of the intestines, upon which they gently but effectually operate as aperients. Illnesses of the most alarming character, which have with- stood all other treatment, have gradually yielded to a course of Holloway's Pills, which will ever prove the invalid's safest friend. H. GRAY & Co., GENERAL DEALERS, of Geraldton and the Greenough Flats, Cham- pion Bay District, acknowledge with many thanks the very liberal patronage they have received from the inhabitants of the above Distric...

IPRIDAYTMAT l8, 1Í66L THE news received on Saturday last by the arrival of the mails from Europe and the Eastern Colonies, is very satisfactory so far as regards our colonial interests. From England there is still no news regarding the desired alteration in our Legislature, but what perhaps many will regard as far more important, is the high range of prices obtained for the wool shipped from Champion Bay by the Pales- tine. Much of that wool was in the grease, but nevertheless Is. 4|d. per lb. was obtained for a large number of bales, and for one even as high as Is. 6d. ; some marks actually sold for more than double what was obtained for them last season, and the whole shipment averaged about 40 per cent, more than it was invoiced at. This most favorable result of their first trial of the February Sales will be a pleas- ing surprise to ...

European Intelligence to the 26th March. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

European Intelligence to the 26th March. With the exception of the introduction of the Reform Bill and the threatening aspect of the dispute between Austria and Prussia respecting the spoils of the late Danish war, the intelligence both from England and the Continent by the mail is but of little interest. As to the Reform Bill it is said the Ministry have declared to stand or fall by it, and it ap- pears by the latest telegrams, which are to the 12th April, that a majority of 20 was expected on the second reading. The Fenian difficulty does not seem to have much decreased; constant arrests were still taking place and it is noticeable that many of them are in a more res- pectable position in life than those made at first. It is now stated, that a belief prevails in Ireland the escape of Stephens, was connived at by the government, that redoubtable individual having purchased safety by betraying his brother con- spirators. In the Austrian and Prussian quarrel, both England and Russia ...

The Eastern Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 May 1866

The Eastern Colonies. 3 WE give below all the most important paragraphs of the colonial news, taken from the telegraphic summary of the S. A. Advertiser. At Sydney an unpre- cedented number of arrivals of ships laden with bread stuff had taken place, no less than thirty entering from San Francisco and'ChUi during the month. The drought may be said to have entirely broken up, the southern portion of Queensland stillhowever suffered severely. In Victoria the plentiful rains had set at rest all the fears of the farmers and stock owners, but in commercial matters things were dull and depressed. The recall of Sir Charles Barling was known by the last mail, causing joy to the reflecting few, but great indignation among the mobocracy. South Australia we regret to find still suffering from want of rain, and it is stated the drought was even beginning to make itself felt in Adelaide. SOUTH AÜSTKALIA. The weather has been warm and fine during the month, with very little rain. Rain is much nee...
