SAND-BAR HARBORS. (From the Brisbane Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 July 1866

SAND-BAB HARBORS. (From the Brisbane Courier.) The following interesting letter on the above subject appeared in a recent number of the Argus:-"The agency through which sand- bars are formed has engaged my attention for many past years, and as it must be a subject of deep interest to everyone in this and other Aus- tralian colonies, I will, with .your permission, offer some remarks on the subject, together with collateral evidence, which will, I trust, go far to make it convincing. I have first to state, that on every coast, the beach of which is clothed'with sand or shingle,'such material will be found to move in one given direction along ?the coast. Let me give a marked instance of Jthu.r From the mouth of the Nerbudda River 1(260 miles to the north of Bombay) down to .''

NORTHAM. (From a Correspondent.) There is no news of importance to communi- cate from the district j the weather (that ex hau&tless topic) still continues all that could be desired ; we have had three days and nights of very heavy rain, and I am glad to be able to inform you that the Avon is now running strong, which does away with all fear respecting the supply of water for next summer. This is in- deed a season to be thankful for ; every where the corn is looking splendid, and in many places it has to be cut for green stuff j with God's blessing a splendid harvest may be looked for, which will somewhat recompense the farmer for past disappointments. i On Thursday evening last the Eev.

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 August 1866

(tlavxttysiuUvLM* To the Editor of the Perth Gazette % W. A. Times. SIB,-To pervert the truth, or speak the truth and leave atf impression other than strict truth, is nothing more or less than giving a lie direct. A correspondent of the Inquirer whoy-out ora quantity of aliases, has selected'the dis- tinguishing brand of "Little John," again makes his appearance as the Champion of an oppressed and ill-used people. Some time since the cry was about the iniquity perpe- trated by our merchant« on the small farmers, whichx was shown to be purely a fabrication of his own, and quite possibly, the system that would be carried oat, if some people wera merchants. Now the grievance is the badly ordered, and worse conducted Publie Houses, the selling of Dragged Wines and Spirits, and the prohibitive prices charged by Hotel Keepers in this particular district.. Being interested in the overthrow of the above charges, I will do my best to prove * that "Littlejohn" has not written the trath, the w...

The result Must be a conviction that the framers of the Constitution Act 15 Yict c 51, made a great error when in giving the colonies the right of Eepresentative Assemblies, they also gave them the power of going farther-of framing their own Constitution Acts, by which they have adopted Eesponsible Government, and are endeavoring to make demo- cratic Legislatures compatible with a monarchical form of Government.

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 August 1866

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) " Who would have thought that o'er a night so fair so dark a morn could break?' Yes, who after gazing upon the splendid calm moonlight of last Friday night, would have sup- posed that on the following morning the heavens would be overcast, and the sea lashed into fury by the stormy wind-but so it was, and con- siderable anxiety caused on account of the ship- ping in the Port. How's the glass? was the continual and anxious inquiry, and the inva- riable reply-falling, falling fast. So it was, and the effects it indicated soon burst upon us ; in the morning it was blowing a stiff breeze from the North-west, with every indication of one of our old N. W. gales, as it grew later in the day the breeze freshened and a heavy swell was running. The first to feel its effects was the Government cutter which, breaking from its mooring drifted down upon the lighter " Pilot" and sent her upon the beach. Fortu- nately, the crew of the former boat reached her...

FOUR MILLION SERMONS A YEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 August 1866

FOUR MILLION SERMONS A YEAR. Statistical statements have sometimes a won- derful power over our imaginations. They give distinct form lo truths which are slumbering indistinctly in our consciousness. We are startled when we are told that the Granges bear down hourly a mass of deposit equal to so many Egyptian Pyramids, or that a penny put out to compound interest in the time of Adam would now be worth many hundred globes of solid gold, each equal in size to the earth. But there are cases where the mere enunciation of bare figures is more surprising than the ornate and sophisticated statements. We should shudder at the bare assertion, if we believed it to be well founded, that twenty thousand bar- rels of measly pork were weekly consumed in London, or that ten men of otherwise sound un- derstanding believed in Dr. Cumming's inter- pretations of the prophecies. We have been startled in the same way by the calculation that four million sermons are delivered an- nually in England. It re...

CLASS LEGISLATION IN TRADE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 August 1866

GLASS LEGISLATION IN TRADE. Ve the Editor of the Perth Gazette % W. A. Times. Snt,-r-A few years ago it was a very common occurrence for settlers in Western Australia to make over their property to some particular friend, so as to defeat the claims of just pay- ment to their creditors. In order to remedy this state of things, our raiera passed an Insolvent Act, by which the former evil was supposed to be remedied, and an equal division of an Insolvent's estate en- forced for the general benefit of all his creditors. The Legislature then made it legal for any insolvent debtor to make over his property as security to any one creditor for his sole benefit, provided a payment was made for its registra- tion, hat it took care to keep such registrations aeeret, and give them no publicity. Since then it is found the Government scheme to enable an Insolvent debtor to make over his -^ property under Government Registration is im fperfect, and that under the existing Act the downer of live st...

NICOL BAY. BY the Emma we have most satis- factory intelligence from Port Walcott. The country was looking most magnifi- cent, abundance of rain had fallen, and the stock were in first-rate condition. The lambing had been very good, and the sheep-owners looked forward to an excellent crop of wool. We regret to .hear that v some parties who had fitted out a boat for the pearl shell fisher* had failed in discovering any defined bank, although they had succeeded in obtaining about a ton and a half of fine shells. Mr Harper has sent us specimens of the substancefound on the rocks, of which we had previously heard as resembling bitu- men. Mr Harper's specimens were pro- cured at Butchers' Inlet, and the Colo- nial Secretary has received some from Nicol Bay, procured by Mr. Sholl. We have not yet seen any of the specimens, but we are told they are not bitumen, but a resin or gum produced by spinifex, and the residue of the plant after being burned.
