Imperishable Potato Factory. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 August 1856
Imperishable Potato Factory. [From aa American Paper.! We heard a short time since that there was established in this vicinity, at Hines burgh Vermont, a factory for putting into a very portable and imperishable form the edible substance of potatoes, without injury to its qualities as an article of food. From the importance of such an operation to the agricultural interests of this State, the re port excited a lively interest in our mindV and we set ourselves to ascertain the cha racter of the process, and see how for it was deserving of special attention. Many years ago M. Appert contrived a mode for preserving both vegetables and' meats when once properly ceoked for many years, without any sensible alteration. The method (called to this day Appert's method) was to fill a close tin case absolutely full of the cooked food, leaving but a small hole open — then to heat the case for a consider able time in boiling water, in order to drive off all the air contained in the contents; and....

ilfasse. Feom the subjoined report of proceedings at the Vasse, it seems that the settlers will not content themselves any longer with possessing the pret tiest church in the colony and yet be without a resident minister. There appears eveiy prospect of the subscription list being well filled, and it is believed that £130 will be raised for the purpose of building a parsonage, and it is intended to de vote the first year's annual subscription especially to this work : — A meeting was held in the church at Busselton on Thursday, the 24th of July, to take into con sideration the means for providing adequate re ligious instruction for the community, by pro curing the appointment of a resident clergyman for the district. Captain Molloy was called to the chair, but at his suggestion Mr Archdeacon Hale, the Bishop designate for the diocese addressed the meet ing. The venerable the Archdeacon called the atten tion of his hearers to the identity of Ms interests with that of the colony at la...

Mr Thackeray's Lecture in New York. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 6 August 1856
Mr Thackeray's Lecture in New York. (From the Nero Torlt Tribune.) Mr Thackeray's lecture last night, of which we endeavour to give an outline, pro~ duced, as far as we could gather, a more generally favourable impression than his last. The material being a degree less heavy, the lecture was a degree more interesting. Mr Thackeray seemed more in his element, and amused his audience with many racy bon mots and pleasant sallies. As a Court picture, Mr Thackeray's lecture on George II. will rank, we believe, among the most !^:r classic specimens of their kind, being pre cisely such a picture a3 a general but refined audience takes delight in. Without pos* sessing any high claim to intellectual emi nence, Mr Thackeray's lecture was attractive principally by its graceful wit and elegance of uiction. It was relieved from heaviness by occasional fine touches of satire, and from all dogmatical stiffness by its easy serenity. If the lecture does not rank beyond the merit of an exquisitely-dr...

T&qckw. Western wanaenngsi or a Pleasure Tour in the Canadas. By W. H. G. Kingston. 2 vols. Chap man and Hall. Mb Kingston like a sensible man, took to himself a wife in die summer of 1853, and by way of relieving the monotony of the honeymoon, resolved to make a wedding tour through Canada and the United States. We may therefore expect to find his pictures all couleur-de-rose, with a perfume here and there of orange blossoms. The result is a very amusing and cheerful book, not very deep, and yet not altogether unsuggestive. The author landed at New York, and thence made die best of his way to Montreal His road lay through Saratoga, where he received a lesson in politeness from ono oi' die black waiters at an hotel: — Entering the breakfast-hall directly from the verandah I had forgotten to remove my hat. ' Take off your hat, sir; people don't like it,' said one. ' Yes, people don't like it,' echoed another. I in stantly doffed my sombrero in obedience to the order, and begg...

Among the country settlers we observed Mr S. Surges, Mr Lennard, Mr C. Wittenoom, Mr Parker, Mr Monger, Mr James Drummond, Mr York, &c., &c.

STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Inquirer & Commercial News — 13 August 1856
STEAM COMMUNICATION ' We are kindly favoured, with the fol lowing extract of a letter from Bakeweli, now in Enfield, to his friends in this colo ny. It shows that our claims upon the Lords of the Treasury to a fair share ot their attention on the steam postal question, will not fail from the want of zealous ad vocates: — ' I sent you a copy of a memorial which we sent on to Government about the pos tal communication. I have just received a letter from Mr Merivale (one of the under secretaries); dated April 3rd, in -which he says the subject has been considered, and that ' the proposal for the delivery of the South Australian mails at Kangaroo Island will have their serious consideration, before any contract is adopted.' I have no doubt whatever, that if the mail via King George's Sound is adopted, the mails for Adelaide will be landed at Kangaroo Island, and for this the colonists will have to thank Mr Elder, Mr McLaren, Mr Phillips, and a few other friends of the colony in London. ...

Quid verum atqae deceits, euro et rogo, et omnis in lioc sum. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 1856] Th£ meeting on Wednesday could not possibly have terminated more satisfactorily. Every resolution was adopted with a degree of unanimity, not unusual cer tainly in this Colony, but still, considering the large number present (estimated as above 400) and the dif ferent classes and interests of which the meeting was composed, calculated to create surprise. In an assem bly comprising representatives of the intelligence, the wealth, and the industry of the colony, there was not to be found, with two exceptions, a single person to undertake the championship of the Government, and the meeting with one accord placed on. record their claims and complaints. As it was the fullest, so was it the most comprehensive meeting ever held in the Colony — settlers from York, Kbrthant, Toodyay, the Northward, the Swan, Guildford, Fremantle, and Perth attending-, and taking part in the proceedings, while the Southe...
