West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 November 1863

kzt gtwtr»üaw ©im**. DISCITE JÜSTITIAM, MONITI. jy Hear .and be JUST. . v., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26,1863. fo AccoBDiNG to the opinion delivered last week by a co-temporary, who is com- monly believed to be the Government oracle, His EXCELLENCY has already d3 cided that no material alteration shall be made in the amendments to the Land Regulations suggested by the late Com- mittee. A retrograde policy is not to be tolerated. When you put your foot in a puddle it is, however, better to re- trograde a step gracefully than plunge deeper into the mire and be glad to scramble out again any how. Moreover, we are not satisfied that His EXCELLENCY has yet made up his mind, whatever his chief adviser may have done, after having signified his intention of hearing what the flockowners have got to say on the subject before forwarding his Despatch to the Secretary of State.. In order to enlist the sympathies of the majority, the question is put as if the Twenty pound Capitalists, the 40-acre sectio...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

l*st %mtxütm ©ÍÜWS. DISCITE JUBTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. . THUESDAT, DECEMBER 3,1863. THE chief argument used on behalf of the Twenty-pound Capitalist for allowing him to select forty acres of the best por- tion of another man's Run (and thus render almost useless some ten thousand acres) is, that small agriculturists must be provided for, and that small agricul- turists are the main-stay of the Colony. It is highly desirable that this class should be allowed a field for their la- bours ; and in this thinly populated Country there must be an immense amount of acreage not yet taken up, well adapted for agricultural purposes. As for small agriculturists being the main- stay of a Country, farmers of 40-acre sections, or twice that quantity of land, have never done good either to themselves or others in any Country. The lower orders in new Colonies make money by doing their own work themselves, and saving the price of labour. They make money by dealing, jobbing, and under- takin...

Our Back Parlour. No. X. [Present—Our DEPUTY-SUB-EDITOR, MR. WOBBLES, and MISS CRUMP.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

te.iad tynxUvtx. No. X. [Present-Our DEPUTY-SITB-EDITOR, ME. WOBBLES, and Miss CBU;MP.] MR. DEPUTY-It was truly thoughtful of Miss Crump to relieve our anxiety, by satisfying us in person that her health has not materially suffered from her de- votion to our poor friend Sprouts. Miss CRUMP-Indeed, Mr. Myth, he particularly begged that I would repre- sent him here this evening ; and had I not promised, he would have insisted on getting up and coming himself. MR. DEPUTY-And so, after watching beside his bed for days and nights with unremitting tenderness, you subject yourself to the painful inconvenience of coming here to oblige the whim of a nervous invalid! Wobbles! there is a heroism in Woman that is too seldom appreciated? never, perhaps, as it de- serves to be. MR. WOBBLES-Hum ! Miss CRUMP-To oblige my nephew, in his present melancholy state, was no doubt the immediate cause of my visit this evening, but I should feel myself ungrateful did I not take every oppor- tunity of acknow...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

®&* êpn ?únvxn¿ To THE EDITOR, OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIE,-Your article as to Government Appointments augurs good ; with the aid of the press we need fear no evil. Al- though we cannot expect our officials to be equal to the class of men sent out to India, men liberally paid, of high talent, and great practical experience, we have a right to protest against the appointment of inefficient, inexperienced men to offices of trust and responsibility. Some recent Magisterial decisions are very unsatisfactory, and as there will be a great accumulation of legal business to be discharged by Magistrates after the 1st day of January next, when the Small Debt Ordinance comes into opera- tion, it is to be hoped that in the ap- pointments to be made by His Excellency, the qualifications not only of Magistrates but of their clerks will be taken into account. I remain, Tours very obediently, AN OBSERVER. November l8,1863.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

To THE EDITOB or THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-I have just read,, in your publica- tion of Thursday last, a small paragraph headed " York," with which I beg very materially to differ. This paragraph re- fers to the regret and annoyance felt at' the proceedings of the Bench on the Pub- licans' Annual Licensing day. Who it is that feels annoyed I cannot think, unless it is the landlord of the Castle Hotel, himself. The Castle Hotel is a good house, and well situated for general con- venience, but it is not necessarily to be closed at the end of the year ; for, al- though the License for 1864 has been re- fused to the present landlord by the Magistrates, for various good reasons, not a word has been said against the house. On the contrary, I heard the Resident Magistrate, in open court, tell Mr. Craig that there was nothing against the house, but there were very strong objections against himself as conductor of it; against whom there have been many con- victions during the past year, for breac...

To THB EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. ^ SIE,-I see the Land Question has engaged the attention of several writers in your contemporary, the Inquirer. I have no wish to express any opinion on this-to us-momentous subject, till we all meet on the 13th January; but I cannot allow these letters of "Tabitha LongclacMtt" and "Agrícola" to pass without some remarks. It is quite evi- dent that the wish and intention of both these writers is to excite bad feeling, and create ill-blood between the two classes who are most interested in the matter the so-called squatter and the small land- holder. I do not wish to impute wrong motives to any writer, but I caution my ' brother settlers to beware how they are . led astray by such men as these, who are evidently hoping to gain something by setting us all by the ears, and do not cate a fig for either of us. The Colony must have both the squatter and the small holder, and the little man of to-day looks forward with hope to become the large stock-owner ...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

Miscellaneous. GBNEBAL GABIBALDI AT CAPRERA:-The ge- neral now enjoys robust health, oversees the farming operations carried on by his followers, receives hundreds of letters by each mail from all parts of the world, and a great many visitors. Ladies from the United States, no less than from Italy, bring their children to him to re- ceive his blessing. When at the island they stop at the caserta built by the Garibaldians for their leader, who, however, refuses to occupy it on the ground that it is too luxurious for bun "while millions of his brethren are sunk in misery." The general for many months has denied to himself and his household the luxury of meat. Beans, kidney beans, and salads, along with rye bread and sheep's milk, form their staple diet. This simple fare is adopted for the purpose of enabling the proprietor of Caprera to save some money for the Polish Fund. Fish is plentiful. But Bosso, who un- dertakes to dress it, is not a famous cook. Garibaldi, who is the soul of h...

When Prederika, like the rest, removed the napkin from her plate, she found beneath a costly necklace of oriental pearls, a splendid diamond ring, and lastly, a letter directed to herself. The maiden, in glad surprise, examined the glittering jewels, with a pleasure natural to her age and sex. Herr Bantes looked at her with eyes sparkling with joy, and gloated, as it were, on the astonish- ment which she and all displayed. Pearls and riag made the circuit of the table, that every one might have an opportunity of admiring them. Meantime, Prederika had broken the seal and read the letter. Her features betrayed surprise even more than when she had discovered the present. Herr Bantes swam in extacy ; but the mother studied with anxious curiosity the constrained features of the child. After a long sil...

President Lincoln on Peace. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

President Lincoln on Peace. Mr. President Lincoln turns his thoughts to peace. He has written a letter to the New York Republican State Convention, declaratory of his views upon the subject, wherein he denies that any intimation from the Confederate army or authorities had reached him " in relation to a peace compromise ;" but further says, that if any such proposition should be made "it shall not be rejected." The enormous difficulties surrounding him are not relieved by the ap- parent progress of of the Federal armies. The mighty cannon of Dahlgren, the scattering of Greek fire, the demolition of Fort Sumter, and the dastardly barbarity of Gilmore in bombard- ing Charleston without adequate notice, turn- ing his guns, as General Beauregard states, "against the old men, the women, and the chil- dren, and the hospitals of a sleeping city," have not so far improved the prospects of the Federal cause as to make the President desirous of car- rying on the war, or induce him to resist a...

Vasse. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 December 1863

Vasse. THE Meeting of the Southern Districts Agri- cultural Society took place on Wednesday, the 25th ult., at Mr. Forrest's Hotel, Busselton ; Joseph Harris, Esq., the Resident Magistrate, in the chair. The Report was read by the Secretary, Mr. W. R. Bunbury, and was satisfactory as to the progress of the district in many products. It laid considerable stress on the defective state of the roads, the probation parties em- ployed upon them comprising only 14 men. It was also urged that a depot for labour should be formed at Busselton, there being none nearer than Bunbury. The season is de- scribed as being remarkably prolific in crops of hay, corn, and fruits. At the Dinner, Col. Molloy took the chair, and about 40 persons sat down to the enter- tainment, which passed off very pleasantly. We give below a list of the prizes awarded : HORSES. Best entire horse, adapted for breeding for the Indian Market - Mr. W. R. Bunbury's bay horse Fagan, £5. Best entire cart horse - Mr. R. Gale's M...

REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

REPORT. THE Directors of the Perth Benefit Building Investment and Loan Society, have pleasure in submitting their first Annual Report to the Shareholders. Since the establishment of the Society, two Ordinances of the Legislative Council have passed, which afford facilities for the formation and control of Benefit Societies. The Legis- lature, or the members thereof who took on interest in the subject, were apparently con- vinced, that such Societies were likely to be- come useful and important, and merited pro- tection fond encouragement. The enactments' ajluded to accordingly legalize such Societies, and empower the members thereof to pass rules, which are binding when approved by the Governor ; and these rules are rendered avail- able for general management and protection against frauds. Without these laws, the mem- bers of Benefit Societies generally, and building associations in particular, might be constantly in litigation and confusion, for the want of that salutary legal con...

At this busy season of the year a number of small farmers 'are summoned to the Court-house, Perth, to sit for a week or more, with feelings not the most pleasant; the farm, of course, loses its master and one of the best horses. Ask him what he is to receive for his expenses ? and, nearly mad enough to strike you, he will reply " nothing at all." Merchants may be able to afford it, and they sometimes are allowed to shirk it alto- gether ; but tradesmen and small farmers can- not. They loudly complain of the great tax upon their time and pockets. Now look at them in the Jury-box; follow them to the retiring room; they are shut up to consider some important case, but it matters not what the case may be, the Jury very commonly set to work abusing the Jury Act; the prisoner may be waiting in awful suspense. «These gen- tlemen ...
