To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ¡ç W. A. Times. SIE,-I have carefully read the published re- solutions of the Meeting at Perth to foi ni the basis of a Scab Ac:, and am surprised that a number of men among whom were some prac- tical sheep-farmers, should have allowed such a series of suggestions to emanate from them. Some of the resolutions are impracticable, some are mischievous, some incomplete, and many unintelligible, or at all events hable to be mis- understood. The 1st, 4th, and 15th only maybe excepted. The 2nd anyone can see is absuid, no three men could properly inspect the colony, divide it how we may. I question whether less than six, would be able to perform the duty. The 3rd and loth taken together with clause 4, would simplj' place every station under the operation of clause 7, and as clause 7 is not very intelligible those who framed it and understand what it means, only can tell the full conse- quences. The immediate consequence and plainest inference is, that aft...

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare. FRIDAY, JUNE 1, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times.   " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. FRIDAY, JUNE, 1866 THE following few lines were issued as a Supplement on Saturday last, for the convenience of those wishing to send by the outgoing Mail the latest news: THE FINISHING TOUCH. IF any proof was wanting as to the sor- did nature of Governor Hampton's ap- pointment of his son as Acting Comp- troller General, it has been given in an order issued yesterday, which runs some- what in this fashion : " In consequence of there being no Government Quarters in Perth for the Comptroller-General, His Excellency the Governor has been pleased to direct that the Acting Comptroller-General shall be allowed ' lodging allowance' at the rate of ¿8100 per annum." No doubt by the regulations of the ser- vice Mr. Hampton is entitled to such an allowance, but he resides with the Oo vernor and Mrs. Hampton in Govern- ment House, a...

THE BARRIER REEF. No. II. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

THE BAEEIEE EEEF. No. II. Br THE EEV. J. E. TENISON WOODS, F.Gr.S., F. L. S., &c. (From the Australasian.) We will now consider the Barrier Eeef a little closer, dismissing from our minds its im- mensity, and the mighty blue wall of water which is ever thundering upon it. We must narrow our views so as to understand its inhabitants, from the great clam shell down to the little tiny rhizopod, which we require the microscope to discover. I have said already that the reef is a very paradise to naturalists, for the extent, the abundance, and the variety of animal life which it contains. " A block of coral rock," says Mr. Jukes " that was brought up by a fishhook from the bottom at one of our anchorages, was interesting from the vast variety and abundance of animal life there was about it. It was a mere worn dead fragment, but its surface was covered with brown, crimson, and yellow Nullipor, many small Actiniae, and soft branching corallines, sheets of Flustrse and Escharse, deli...

CHAMPION BAY. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From à Correspondent.) I have again much pleasure in re- porting the fall of rain in this district, the last few days we have been supplied with such a downpour that has gladdened the heart of the farmer, grazier, and,the whole community at large ; and we sannot but be grateful to the Giver of all good. The presence of Messrs.'Bateman's whaling party at Port Gregory is now much needed ; several whales have been seen in the port, and allowed to go out again without being molested. A cricket match is to take place in our town on the anniversary of the colony, between the Victoria and Bootnall clubs ; strange as it may appear, the Bootnall are determined to win, and the Victoria Club has also the same conceit of themselves, and nothing but time can prove which of the two will be conquerers.

Mr. Clinch states that had the Stewards considered till doomsday they could have come to .no other decision than they did via. :-that "Bushman" was distanced because his rider Had dismounted before returning to scale. ^v "To expose the fallacy of such a statement _5*X need only observe that every advertisement ,in the local papers concerning the races of 1866 contained the following paragraph viz. :-"if a rider dismounts before returning to scale his horse is Zio&Ze to be disqualified." If there is any virtue in the word liable then, most certainly, ought not " Bushman" to have been adjudged distanced for the Town Plate of 1866, seeing that it was evident to all that the ...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette &$ W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

Cflràsptt&jettJtfc To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W.A. Times. SIR,—I have just seen the " Supplement to the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times" bearing date the 27th instant, which has certainly astonished me. The prostitution of patronage evinced by the appointment of Mr. George Essex Hampton to the office of Acting Comptroller-Genera, was nauseating enough in all conscience, but the unblushing effrontery of the "lodging allow- ance" carries with it something so utterly re- pugnant to all received notions of official honesty, let alone gentlemanly feeling, that I trust our nominee members will at the approaching meet-   ing of the Legislative Council ask for an expla- nation of the whole affair. No doubt the mover will be called to order, and told that it is not a Colonial matter, and therefore one with which the hon. members have no concern, but they may very well reply that they have concern with all that affects the character and reputation of the Gov...

AUSTRALIA AND EUROPE FORMERLY ONE CONTINENT. (From the Popular Science Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

AUSTRALIA AND EUROPE FOR- MERLY ONE CONTINENT. BY BERTHOLD SEEMANN, PH.D., F.L.S., V.P.A.S. (From the Popular Science Review.) To our forefathers it must have had a wonderful fascination when some astrolo- ger of note proclaimed the great events that were to happen in the world, or ut- tered solemn words of warning that sent a thrill of horror through the believing multitude. Our practical age, hy its un belief, has deprived itself of all the plea- sure resulting from that pastime. True, there have been some modern attempts in that direction, but they have invariably resulted in failure. We no sooner hear of some popular preacher having pre- dicted the end of the world to occur within three year's time, than we read in the newspapers that the prophet has rudely destroyed our nascent belief by taking a new lease of his house for a series of years. Modern science, which dispelled so many delusions, has laid it down as one of its dogmas, that it is absolutely useless to attempt lifting...

THE CATTLE PLAGUE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 June 1866

THE CATTLE PLAGUE. l8 - . » ¡t (From the Australasian.) We make no apology to our readers for com- ing back again upon the subject of the "the rinderpest," or the cattle plague, for the dimen- sions to which it has attained in England are perfectly awful, and new facts about it are com- ing out every day. So infectious it is that in one instance it has been ascertained that a herd was attacked because the Government inspector after going through the infected animals, had not taken the precaution of washing his hands. The provisions, of the present Government bill just passed show that the risk of contagion goes further still. Dogs running in the in- fected districts are summarily destroyed, al- though in Leicestershire, where there are more foxhounds and greyhounds than elsewhere, the disease has not yet appeared. In Cheshire, where the cattle plague now rages, it is pro- posed to put a stop to hunting for the remain- der of the season. When such is the danger from such very small c...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 June 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIE,-If there has been one feature more prominent than another in the Volunteer move- ment in England, it has been the absence of all class distinctions : and this has contributed no doubt to its wonderful success. When they had donned their uniform and turned out on duty, peasant and peer stood on an equality, and the lord might be left hand man to the laborer. It is not that social distinctions are less regarded there than elsewhere, for nowhere perhaps are they more carefully observed j and the people of England have the sense to see that such distinctions are for their happiness and advantage. Their good sense has equally shown them when these boundary lines may be abolished, and when a hearty conjunction on an equality is necessary to give effect to a great and noble movement. Promotion follows by merit, and social rank does not influence it. Why then is not the same impartiality shown here ? That it is not, is shown by the not...

Now L am a resident at Champion Bay, and I have never heard that such a building had been erected, neither can I learn from any per- son its whereabouts. There is a Beading Boom which I am led to believe has been established about three years. It may be that he refers to this, if so I can vouch that it is not a credit to its promoters, or supporters, it being in a retro- grading state, with no energy in its members. A MECHANIC.

CRICKET. (From our Perth correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 June 1866

CBICKET. (From our Perth correspondent.) The anniversary of the foundation of the colony was celebrated at Fremantle by a match between the Elevens oí Perth and Fremantle, and the Cricketers were again singularly fortu nate in the brilliancy of the weather. No finer day could be desired. The course of the game offers little food for remark. Fremantle won the toss and put Perth in to the bowling of Messrs. Newman and Cooper : the wickets fell rather fast for 45 runs. Fremantle followed with 66, qf which the last 15 were mainly owing to the very bad fielding on the Perth side ; catches were missed, and the ball was thrown to any place but the stumps. After the usual interval for lunch« Perth again took the batting and scoi ed 48, which though an average score for our matches was very small against a lead of 21. Fremantle gained the required 28 runs with the loss of only one wicket, thus winning by as much as they lost last time. The better players were victorious, no doubt ; partly pe...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette SçW.A. Times^ DEAS SIE,-I have just read in your issue of the 1st instant, that you understand an appli- cation was made to the Governor by Mr. J. H. Monger, Jun. and myself to supply the destitute with seed wheat. I beg to spy you are in error. I have not made any application direct to the Governor or Government for those farmers who are really needy, but did so to the Resident Magistrate, who told me he would write to the Government on the s abject. I have since been informed by him that no seed wheat would be supplied. I lately mentioned in a note to Mr. J. W. Hardey that a large number of acres would be lying idle unless the Government furnished seed. I am still of the same opinion, as many of the small farmers have asked me to lend them some, stating they have no means of purchasing it, and their lard must lie waste in consequence. As to the wheat being held back for the pur- pose of obtaining a higher price, it is all imagi- nary. I do not kn...
