NEW SOUTH WALES. EXTRAORDINARY ATTACK UPON A JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 June 1866

NEW SOUTH WALES. EXTRAORDINARY ATTACK UPON A JUDGE. In the Legislative Council, on April 6th, Mr. Martin's bill to give relief to juries in certain cases, and to prohibit new trials in cases of felony, being under discussion, an extraordinary attack was made upon Mr. Justice Hargrave, which the Herald reports as follows : " Mr. Macpherson rose to support the bill. He said that the hon. and learned gentleman who had just resumed his seat had not thought it necessary to state that from 1788 to the pre- sent moment no such law as this had been found necessary. The character of thejudges and the mode in which justice had been carried on in this country had been sufficient to render it un- necessary to bring forth such a law as was now proposed to be carried in this most extraordinary manner-as a measure of public safety-as if this House, instead of performing the functions of a branch of the Legislature, were to act the part of a Vigilance Committee ! Every one who valued the administra...

All pain, vomiting, and distress ceases in a few minutes after taking a dose of that won- derful SEDATIVE ANODYNE and ANTI SPASMODIC remedy CHLORODYNE, disco- vered by Dr. J. COLLIS BROWNE, M. R. C. S. L. (ex Army Med. Staff), the recipe of which was confided solely to J. T. DAVENPORT, 33, Great Russell-street, Bloomsbuiy-square, London, (Pharmaceutical Chemist). The medical testi- mony of civil, hospital, military, and naval practitioners pronounces it invaluable. It re- lieves pain of any kind, soothes the restlessness of fever, and imparts the most refreshing sleep without producing or leaving any of the unplea- sant effects of opium. Earl RUSSELL has graciously favonred J. T. Davenport with the following extract of a des- patch from Mr. Webb, H.B.M.'s Consul at Manilla, dated Sept, 17,1864:-"The remedy most efficacious in i...

English and Foreign News. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 June 1866

English, and. Foreign News. The fate of the Reform Bill, and of the Minis- try, hangs in a suspense which a few hours will terminate, but the termination will certainly come too late for announcement in these 'columns/ It was mentioned in my last letter, that Government staked its . existence on the bill, and in the interval between the dispatch of the last mail and the meeting of the House after Easter, the Ministry and its friends did " all they knew " in favor of the measure. Mr. Gladstone himself went to Liverpool, to deliver strong speeches for Reform, and meetings were got up all over the country to pass resolutions in behalf of Earl Russell's Cabinet. The mid- dle class did not attend these meetings, gene- rally speaking. On the 9th, the Commons met a«;ain, and on the 12th Mr. Gladstone moved the second reading, making on that occasion, contrary to custom, a long and energetic speech. The debate has since been raging, if that be too strong a word to use in reference to a rema...

NORTHAM. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 June 1866

NORTHAM. (From a Correspondent.) r The early rains have caused a great stir among the farmers this year,/ploughing in nearly over, and every one appears cheered by the piospect of a good year. Lambing has commenced and I believe the prqspects of the sheep-owner are good, notwithstanding the Scab Act and duty on leaf tobacco forms the general topic of con- versation, and that reminds me that a meeting of the members of the Farmers' Club and the public generally, is to be held at the Avon Hotel on the 16th inst., to take into considera- tion this same Scab Act. There is also some talk of memorialising the Government for more protection in the shape of Pensioners and Police, and I think a very good case may be made in its favor ; the town has of late years been the scene of several horrible tragedies, hut robbing and other petty crimes are the order of the day ; and why is it so ? because we have only one Police Constable, and a very zealous persevering fellow he is, but it is hardly t...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 June 1866

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times   SIR,- I beg to express through your widely circulated journal, my opinion upon the much vexed question - the Scab in Sheep; also, as to the duty on Sheep Tobacco. My opinion of the latter is, that a duty of threepence per lb. might be retained, and then an Act of Council passed to compel every flock-owner under a heavy fine to dip his sheep in good tobacco water for a succession of years, say not less than three; this would have the desired effect sought   - that of doing away with the Scab altogether, for under such treatment the Scab will and must disappear. In the next place the enor mous quantity of tobacco that would be required to dip the sheep throughout the colony, even at the reduced duty of threepence, will be suffi cient to keep up the Revenue. In the third place there must be an informer to report all acts of neglect by sheep-owners to a Magis trate, who shall summon the owner and fine h...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. In a special jury compensation case tried at the Guildhall, the land in the neighbourhood of St. Paul's Churchyard was estimated at £1,000,000 per acre. The King of Greece is about to be betrothed to the Grand Duchess Wera of Russia ; three or four years are to elapse before the marriage. The days of Prince Napoleon in France are numbered ; he has had a long, interview with the Emperor, and the result is he has deter- mined to expatriate himself. Small gain to any land that receives so querulous and fanatic a man. Addressing an assembly the other day, the Pope is reported to have prophesied that the present year would be one of triumph and of brilliant victory over the enemies of the temporal power. " I shall behold the triumph," added the Pope, " and in 1868 I shall render up my soul to God." The bursting of the second 600-pounder Armstrong has shaken a system and almost exploded a theory. It is said that a man just arrested at Ham- burg has confessed he was guilty o...

BEAUTY AND VIGOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

BEAUTY AND VIGOTJB. For the sex to wish to be beautiful is reason- able and natural. With what rapture do we gaze upon a lovely countenance, on every feature of which sits the calmness of content the radiance of a happy, guileless mind, spotless in its eyes. With what admiration do we look on a blooming complexion. That delicately wonderful texture inhaling, exhaling, un- tiringly, with inconceivable elasticity and strength, and covering us with a garment lighter than gossamer-those invisible points more sensitive than electric wires that join the outer to the inner world, bearing on its surface a blush more evanescent than the bloom on a flower-Yes, beauty is charming. But it may vanish in a moment, for it is but an aureole around the brow of health-the sign like the fragrance of the flower of perfect vitality. Beauly is strength, and strength and health depend on the order of the animal functions. For regulating these, Holloway's discoveries have proved the most potent ever known....

The North-West Settlements. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

The North-West Settlements. THE return of the Mystery from Boebuck and Tien Tsin Bays, gives us the most agreeable intelligence from these places, where everything was progressing very favorably, and the most cheering pros- pects existed foi* the future. Mr. Logue and Mr. M'Bae left Boebuck Bay, by the .Mystery but the latter gentleman landed at Tien Tsin where he proposes to remain three or four months. No official report has, we hear, yet been received from Mr. Logue, either by the Company or the Government. We give extracts from letters which have been received : Mr. S. Hall says "the stock of all kinds he found in fair condition for breeders, but not fat." An expedition to the Fitz- roy had succeeded in reaching that river, which " is by far the largest river on this coast, and I think will ultimately turn out of great importance ; the soil appears rich, the grass the most luxuriant ever soen by any of the party, and water good and abundant. The country is described as low, but ...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

Carraplana. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette % W. A. Times. SIB,-When things get to the worst they are sure to mend, is an adage as common as chil- dren to the poor, and debt to the improvident ; but when things become so bad that they can- not be any worse, and continue in that wretched condition without any sign of improvement, then they form anjexception to the general rule. Some twelve years ago we were like all other new settlements, without either churches or public houses. However, we did not remain very long before the latter accommodation, for the comfort of our bodies and detriment of our purses followed on the heels of our require- ments real or imaginary; as the district ad- vanced so did public houses and hotels, until we now stand in a position so far as houses of accommodation are concerned second to no other place in the colony. It was not so with Church privileges. Some years since as things improved and men became permanently settled with their families around th...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) Your readers will learn with pleasure that the Emma was without difficulty floated off from her perilous position and is now in the Bay uninjured, not making agal- lón of water in 24 hours. She has been sur- veyed and pronounced fit to continue her voy- age, which she probably will do on Monday > next She had a most miraculous escape, a C cable's length on either side and neither ship or crew could have escaped to tell the tale. On the sheep being brought over here, it was found ' that most of them were infected with scab, and I cannot but think those who shipped them de- serve some severe punishment ; it was a most cruel act to the stock-owners at Tien Tsin, cal- culated to inflict upon them an enormous amount of injury, whether they have now been dressed I do not know, but certainly if they Jr luve not been they should not be allowed to ^proceed. What were the authorities at Fre "*" {nantie or Perth doing to allow such stock to be shi...

PEACOCKS. [From the Sydney Morning Herald.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

PEACOCKS. -? [From the Sydney Morning Herald.~\ Feminine vanity from time immemorial has been a favorite topic of observation both with poets and philosophers, and women have* been so often rebuked for being vain that nothing can be added to what has been already said with severity upon the subject. It is felt that Heaven has made them so, and that the mis- fortune cannot now be repaid. And, indeed, if women are meant to be admired by others, it would not be very easy to draw a sharp line and to prevent them from admiring themselves. In order, however, to be thoroughly impartial, we ought not to forget that literature has been almost entirely in the hands of men, and that the draft portrait of the opposite sex has been chiefly painted by male artists. If literature had been, on the contrary, entrusted mainly to female hands, possibly men might have come to be credited with the very qualities which are now supposed to be peculiarly distinctive of womankind. Manly loveliness, and manl...

Toodyay Agricultural Society. EEPOBT of proceedings at a Public Meeting of the Toodyay Agricultural Society, held at Mon- ger's Hotel, Newcastle, on the 14th June, 1866, J. M. Dempster, Éso.., in the Chair. The Chairman in opening the proceedings said that the Meeting was called in accordance with a requisition, to take into consideration the Synopsis of a Scab Act which he understood was to be brought before the Legislative Coun- cil at its next Meeting. He was of opinion, in which he believed the greater part of the sheep farmers agreed, that the Synopsis put forth by the Government would, if passed into law, be ruinous to sheep-farmers in general. The several clauses having been read by the Chairman, and discussed, it was resolved 1st.-That in the opinion of this Meeting (which opinion is nearly universal in the dis- trict) a Scab Act named in accordance with the Synopsis recently published by authority ofthe Government in the local papers, would prove most vexatious and annoying...

York Agricultural Society. A Special Meeting of the York Agricultural Society, called by requisition, was held at the Castle Hotel, York, on Wednesday, the 6th inst. There was a good attendance, nineteen settlers and members being present. Charles Wittenoom, Esq., being called to the Chair, opened the meeting in his usual felici- tous manner, of which we can only give a very faint outline. He felt gratified that he had been called upon to preside at a Meeting called for what he, and he was sure all present con- sidered a most important question. There had been a good deal of discussion about the require- ments of the sheep-owners, as to the necessity of some further legislation for the prevention of the increase of scab, some persons considering that it could only be eradicated by stringent legislation, and inflicting heavy penalties; others, on the other hand, holding that with some slight alteration the present Ordinance would be found quite sufficient for the require- ments of th...

VINES AND WINE-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 June 1866

VINES AND WINE-MAKING. The following extract from the report read by the Chairman of the "Hunter Ki ver Vineyard Association," on the 10th ult., is worth con- sideration : It was the report of the Paris Exhibition Judgffa, in 1854, which first awakened us to the appreciation of what could be done in wine growing in Australia ; for our wines compared with those of Europe, were ranked with the best growth of the Austrian States, and received the same number for excellence as was given to the wines of Hungary. I am sure that the eminent consideration given to, and the honour- able place occupied bv, our wines at the Paris Exhibition of 1854 will dispose the members of this association to vie with each other in pre- paring tbeir best products for the New South Wales Commission now occupied in the collec- tion of specimens and samples for the approach- ing Exhibition in Paris, and I have little doubt but that we shall be there told that we have made great progress, and that a high standi...
