NEW CALEDONIA. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

NEW CALEDONIA.* (From the Australasian.) The transportation question, thanks to the persistently firm attitude maintained by the colonists, and the wise retrocession of the Imperial Government, made just in time, is probably decided once and for ever as far as Great Britain is concerned. But a French ruffian is quite as bad as an English one to have among us, or rather he is much worse, for the latter commonly has some scruples of conscience as to his treatment of the defenceless and unresisting, while the former generally has none. We would rather see a Ben- gal tiger loose among our women than a genuine French " Forçat " from the Bagnes of Brest or Toulon, for the tiger could only take life,* and the galley slave would take life and something else. It is, therefore, with no very agreeable feelings that we read of the fixed deter- minations of the French Imperial Go- vernment to make New Caledonia, an island so near to Australia as to be almost apart of it, the abiding place of a s...

The following letter has been placed at our disposal for publication : DeGrey River, North-West Australia, 18th. July, 1866. DEAE SIB,-Knowing that you are desirous of receiving any information respecting this district, I take upon myself the liberty of ad- dressing you to inform you of my having at last reached the DeGrey with my sheep and stock, without loss or accident. You will have heard of the rains we had here. As soon as the plains could bear the sheep, I started. Found the grass had sprung up well on the Sherlock Plains. Nine miles East of the Sher- lock towards Hunt's Pass, came on very thick triodia ; had to burn for sheep to pass. Hunt's Pass had some very fine plains of grass amongst the hills. From Hunt's Pass to Mount Spinifex there is as fine a plain as any one could wish for. I must inform you that having passed over the country once before with my brother, we went to the DeGrey in as direct a route as possible, but on coming back we kept 10 miles or thereabouts far...

FROM SYDNEY TO LONDON, VIA PANAMA. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

FBOM SYDNEY TO LONDON, VIA PANAMA. (From the Australasian.) When the brave old Dutchman, in his good barque the Sea Lion, gave the name of his fa- vourite ship, in his native language, to the south-west extremity of the continent of Aus- tralia, he little dreamt of the changes which would come upon the land he had discovered in little more than a couple of centuries. Then Cape Leuwin stood grimly out, the Land's End of an unknown country, and looked upon a sea of which tiie mariner knew almost as little. What land lay to the north was partially known; but eastward the veil of obscurity had not been lifted. Whether the Cape of the Sea Lion guarded the shore of a long narrow island, or was the out-lying fortress of a great conti- nent, against its perpetual assailant the sea, was an utter mystery. Dampier and Tasman may have thrown their imaginations forward centuries into time, and have prophesied great futures for the lands which they discovered may have foreseen great navies traver...

fjertfc &K$dU * SL J. ®im*8. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st a* be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. 1^RIDÂÏ7AWUST^ÎÔ7Î8667 TWO PRODUCTS OF THE NORTH- WEST COAST. WE had given us on Saturday last, as a curiosity, a native- ornament from Nicol Bay, consisting of apparently a number of beads or seeds strung upon a line twisted from human hair ; the beads we were informed were made by the natives from some substance they gathered from a bush or tree growing on stony hills. On examination it was apparent the beads had not been strung but had been formed upon the string, and were of two colors red and a dirty green. On applying a lighted match to one of the red beads it melted and had the appearance of an in- ferior kind of sealing wax, from which we thought it likely the substance would prove to be seed-lac; not having the means of testing, we obtained Mr. E. Birch's as- sistance, when we crushed some of the beads of both colors, and the b...

To Capitalists, Stock-owners, and Agriculturists. THE undersigned has received instruc- tions from the Trustees of the Western Australian Company to offer for Sale, the whole or any part of their extensive Landed Possessions in the district of Wellington, comprising in the aggregate 125,000 ACRES; à large portion of which is unequalled in the Colony for Grazing as well as Agri- cultural purposes. The Lands open for Sale consist of the following blocks, viz. : 10,800 acres on the Upper Harvey, 14,300 " " " Brunswick [and Lunenburg. 13,600 .' " " Collie. These blocks would form magnificent stations to capitalists who have the means of fencing them in and stocking them. There is the finest pasture and abundance of water, the rivers named running throughout the year, with numerous other streams and permanent springs. The timber is of unrivalled size and quality, affording every facility for fencing, and an unlimited supply for export. 7700 acres extending from the Lesche- nault Estuary ...

MANURING VINEYARDS. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

MANURING VINEYARDS. [From the Australasian.'} Numbers of writers have already shown that the quality of manure which is to be applied to the vine should be suited to the climate. In many persons' opinions the manure required by the various plants must be the more powerful, and contain a greater amount of nitrogen, in the same proportion in which those plants are transferred towards the south, thus changing the climatical relations assigned them by nature. While compost, marl, or green manur- ing are sufficient for the grape-vine in the north (and there are many soils not requiring these substances), it can hardly thrive in the south without being supplied with a proper amount of cattle manure. Ammonia in that case seems to have a peculiar effect. Investigations of late years with beets have shown that, even if there is no nitrogen contained in the sugar, the quan- tity present in the beet depends on the amount of ammonia present in the manure, in the absence of which the amount of s...

"TIME IS, TIME WAS, TIME SHALL BE NO MORE." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

.ftfffîacÊ INTIME ^TAS, TIÍIÉ SHALL BE NO MORE.'» j ¿.The glorious oracle of the Brazen Head!-so ©Í6en quoted, ¿nd so little attended to. " Tak- ing things in time" is so proverbially men- tioned as to be almost a »trite remark. But vfBat is "in time?" A man meets a friend casually, who seems desperately ill, and naturally asks him "what on earth is the matter with you?-what are you suffering from P" " Oh, nothing particular," replies the invalid, " I have lost my appetite, and do not sleep well at night, and of course Hook poorly." And so they part j the friendly inquirer shaking his head, -and mutterng to himself not very cheerful prophecies as to his friend's condition. The fact of the case is simply this, videlicet ; that the invalid so addressed is in want of proper treatment; his liver is out of order and will not perform its proper functions ; conse- quently his stomach speedily becomes dis- ordered, and alternate cold shiverings and feverishness supply the place of the natur...

COLONIAL NOMENCLATURE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

COLONIAL NOMENCLATURE. (From the Australasian.) A lack of invention, a deficient faculty for geographical nomenclature, would seem to be a characteristic of the modern time, and is wit- nessed in all tew countries as well as those west of the Atlantie. Eapidly-rising colonies, with the germs of future greatness, are natu- rally desirous to take their place in the world under simple and suitable names, in lieu of the inexpressive, inappropriate, and sometimes ridi- culous ones, which were bestowed on them tem- porarily when they were mere wildernesses, by hasty sailors or early settlers. Thus New Zealand, South Australia, and New South Wales, have each and all been anxious to dis- card their present appellations, but it is no less curious than true that satisfactory substitutes have not been contrived as yet. It is fully a dozen years since the authorities of New Zea- land wished to discard that term given by the Dutch discoverers, and out of keeping for British settlements, but the ...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 August 1866

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) As my last was but a narrative of the havoc committed by the late gale, so this week I will commence by noting that man's energy is now being exerted to repair the damage done. A Survey was held upon the Emma last Thurs- day, but I have not heard the conclusion ar- rived at by the surveyors, nor do I feel compe- tent myself to offer an opinion as to the damage done. A tender has been accepted to relaunch her for the sum of .£105, and the contractor is busy making the necessary preparations. The Speculator, Pilot, and Mary Jane are more or less damaged, and are affording employment to a number of shipwrights; so true is the old adage -" It's an ill wind that blows no one any good." I learn that the Emma parted both chains when she brought up, and not only one as was generally supposed, so that the temporary check whilst drifting on shore must have been caused by the weight of the cable paid out. On Sunday the southerly winds afforded a favorab...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. June 25. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 August 1866

LONDON WOOL KEFORT.. -June 25. The sales which commenced on May 10 closed on June 23, the quantities catalogued comprising 24,671 bales Syd- ney j 72,i 81 ba!es, Port Phillip ; 6742 bales, Van Diemen's Land; 20,071 bales, Adelaide; 2,305 bales, Swan «iver; 17,161 bales, New Zealand; 15,378 bales, Cape; total, 157,602 bales.

THE WAR IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 August 1866

THE WAR IN GERMANY. Events have travelled during the last month at an accelerated pace, and momentous issues have been crowded into a narrow compass of time. The first important incident was the abandonment of the Congress. Just as the preparations for the meeting were completed, the ambassadors appointed, and everything ready for the first summons to be issued, Austria demurred. Prussia, rampant as she was, had accepted the programme without con- ditions. Italy had placed herse'f unreservedly in the hands of the neutral Powers. But on the 5th of June, the French government informed the other Cabinets that in consequence of the reservations made by Austria, the project of a Conference must be relinquished, and the settlement of existing difficulties be left to the three Powers at variance. What Austria ap- pears to have required was that the Conference should not touch any purely German questions, and that no changes or modifications of terri- tory should be embraced in the delibera...
