MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 September 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. ~lí ís said that the Duke of Hamilton has in- augurated his racing career by laying £180,000 to «6,000 against Hermit for the Derby. A Yankee Paradise.-The town of East King- ston, New Hampshire, boasts of having neither minister, lawyer, doctor nor town pauper. A Peabody Fund is being raised in London, out of which it is proposed to erect a statue to the princely benefactor of the poor of the metro- polis, and to establish some other perpetual memorial of his munificence. At the Court of Common Council a decision in favor of the purchase of Southwark Bridge was come to by the Corporation of London, for the purpose of making it toll free. The sum to be given for it is £200,000. At the sale of the late Gordon Cumming's collection the whole of the skins and the grand panorama were purchased for Mr. Barnum, of Hew York, whose agents, Messrs. Wells and Kimmo, also secured for him most of the more valuable miscellaneous lots. It is proposed to erect a statue to the mem- or...

The Plaintiff's case, as appeared by the open- ing of Mr. Landor, and the examination of Mr, Gray, was shortly:-That in November last Messrs. C. Yon Bibra and H, DuBoulay en- gaged the Defendant's vessel to convey 70 horses to Madras, at a freight oí £10 per head, they to find fodder and the vessel water.

HISTORICAL ILLUSTRATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 September 1866

HISTORICAL ILLUSTRATIONS. Pride of birth may become a very ignoble feeling ; bat there is no absolute reason why it should be so. The man who rightly values his privilege of pedigree accepts, in its fullest sense, the maxim "noblesse oblige;" and the most stubborn democrat will scarcely deny that a potent incentive to gallant deeds may be given by affectionate remembrance of the best men of our own blood. It is all very well to say, with the poet, that "the grand old gardener and his wife smile at our claims of long descent;" but, if you investigate the matter, you find that Adam himself was pre- cisely the best-born man on record. Admirable is the answer that was once given to the old rebellious rhyme, "When Adam delved and Eve span, who was then the gentleman?" The gentleman ? Why, obviously, Adam ; and Eve was the lady. There are certain broad facts which, cannot be argued away, and race is one of them. Shall we admit its power in horses, and disregard it in men ? With indivi- du...

PßSATrsEPTEMKER^riL866r A CORRESPONDENCE appears in our columns this morning which we cannot let pass without some comment. It is between Mr. W. P. Clifton and the Acting Comptroller General. We scarcely need inform our readers who Mr. Clif- ton is, as he has been known for many years as one of our most intelligent, capable, and respected settlers, a magis- trate, and a gentleman in every sense of the word. Who and what the Acting Comptroller General is, is equally, if not so favorably, well known. The Correspondence originated in a very proper protest by Mr. Clifton against an order issued some time since, that every ticket-of-leave holder should within a certain time present himself at the office of the Resident Magistrate of his district. Afc the time that order was issued it struck us that its effect must, in a very great number o...

SKETCHES FROM NEW ZEALAND [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 September 1866

SKETCHES FROM NEW ZEALAND (By the Correspondent of the S. M. Herald.) People at a distance know very little about the natives of New Zealand. Beyond a vague impression that they once were savage canni- bals, and suddenly grew Christian, and of course civilised, on the arrival of the mission- aries amongst them, people don't trouble them- selves to fancy very much about the Maoris. That they are brave is believed, because it has taken A great deal of trouble to subdue even a part of them ; that they are full of noble and manly qualities is credited^n evidence still more slight and even less grounded, on an ac- quaintance with the circumstances that alone give a true color to and explain the things heard. It may, therefore, be imagined that I felt some curiosity, as I found myself fairly em- barked in a small canoe, managed by the rela- tive with whom I was staying, and his Maori servant, and on my way to see a Maori village. Everything was new to me-even to the glor- ious clear blue ...

?ßxxt*$ßtibtntt. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette âç W. A. Times. SIE,-We are bothered out of our peace and quiet by all sorts of opinions about Scab and Tobacco. Now, as it is a subject on which you some years ago allowed .me a small space in your valuable journal, though I suffered some slight annoyance about it at the time, by being mistaken for somebody else, I shall again ven- ture to claim the attention of the enlightened public, by your kind assistance. With regard to the Sheep Disease Ordinance proposed, I quite agree with my respected friends in Northam, considering that the cost of Inspectors would be a greater expense than the case requires, and that His Excellency, with all due deference to the soundness of his judg- ment generally, is not sufficiently intimate with sheep diseases, to decide on the requirements necessary to make a Scab Inspector. As to taking the duty off sheep tobacco, there are two sides to that question. I am told that keeping on the duty is opposed...

THE ARMISTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 September 1866

THE ARMISTICE. For the moment the interest of the war has departed from the field of battle, and entered the field of diplomacy. On the morning of the 21st of July the Paris ' Moniteur' announced that "Austria had accepted the proposal of Prussia to abstain from any act of hostility during the five days in which the court of of Vienna will have to notify its acceptance on the subject of the preliminaries of peace." The preliminaries proposed by Prussia and approved by France are stated to be as follows : Austria to recognise the dissolution of the former German Bund and the organisation of a new Confederation from which she would be excluded. The north of Germany to form a union under the military and diplomatic direction of Prussia. The optional formation of a union of South Germany as an independent international body. National bonds between these two Unions. The annexation of the Elbe Duchies to Prussia, with the exception of the Danish portion of Schleswig. Part payment by Austr...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 September 1866

INDIA. The famine is growing more and more severe, the distress of the population on all sides of us more and more acute, whilst the action of the Government remains as unsatisfactory as beiore. If the Viceroy has placed 20 lacks at the disposal of the Bengal Government, the manner in which that sum is being utilised is as clumsy and mischievous as can well be imagined. The rice that is imported to Orissa cannot be landed speedily, in the absence of arrangements which should have been made before hand by the Government ; the " centres of relief" as they are called, do not reach a tithe of the sufferers, and therefore the wail of a dying people becomes heavier with every succeed- ing day ; and the number of the dead that are flung into the river are counted by hundreds. At this present time our streets are thronged hy crowds of men, women and children in fear- ful stages of emaciation and physical debility, whilst large numbers of them are afflicted with dysentry, diarrhoea and other...

THE European Overland Mail of 26th July and the Indian August Mails arrived in Perth at half-past two on Tuesday morning in a heavy cart, the mail-cart having its axle-tree broken at 120 miles from Perth, otherwise the arrival would have been on Sunday. The all-absorbing topic of the news is the war in Germany. The late telegrams by the previous mail made us aware that heavy fighting had taken place, and that Austria had made overtures for peace, ceding Venetia to France. We have now full details of the terrible events crowded into the few days during which the san- guinary struggle lasted, the final triumph of Prussia when within sight of Vienna, and the submission of Austria to all the terms proposed by her antagonist, which shuts her out for the future from the Ger- man confederation.

THE WAR IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 September 1866

THE WAR IN GERMANY. Momentous events have occurred in Germany since our last. Penetrating Bohemia in three columns, the Prussians have won a succession of victories, and continued their advance to the gates ef Vienna, where their triumphant course has been suspended by an armistice, which had just been agreed upon through the good offices of the Emperor of the French. The narrative of these events involves many details of interest. On the 24th June, the Prussians entered Bohemia, advancing without encountering any serious resistance till the 27th, when a battle took place. On that day the fifth army corps, commanded by General von Steinmetz, fell in with the Austrians at Nachod, on the Silesian frontier, 25 miles west of Glatz. This corps has entered Bohemia by way of Braun au and Rienerz, with order 3 to move on to the fortress of Josephstadt by the pass of Nachod. Both sides suflered considerable losses, and at the close of the day each maintained its previous position, a portion ...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. Since the close of the sales there has been a moderate inquiry for all descriptions of wool, and several sales made at a slight advance bn the closing rates of last sales. There is a large business doing in the North. Manufacturers are well employed, and the raw material is entering into consumption at a full average ; the mills running full time, all have large orders, many for the spring trade. An easier money market, with peace, would cause a great demand for wool, and we should have to quote an advance all round of Id. to l|d.. and in Port Phillip 3d to 2M.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,-In your issue of Friday, Sept. 7th, you state "on Saturday last in a brawl at Craig's   public house, a conditional pardon man stabbed a ticket-of-leave holder with a knife and has been committed for trial at the Sessions." Now as there is no public house in York conducted by a person named Craig, I presume you must allude to the Castle Hotel, York. In contra- dicting and exposing the fallacy of your state- ment I am happy to state such an atrocity has never been committed on my premises since I have kept the Castle Hotel, extending over 14 years. As your paragraph may tend to cast an im- putation on my well-known and equally well conducted establishment, I shall feel obliged by your inserting this contradictory statement on my part. I am, Your obedient servant, SAMUEL CRAIG. N. B.-A case of stabbing occurred at Albert's, York Hotel, on the day in question. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ...
