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

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Adelaide, August 29,1866. The weather during the month has been ex- ceedingly fine. There was an abundance of rain during the early part, and since then the days have been warm and bright. The-crops look well, and so far there is a prospect of a good harvest. The Parliament reassembled yesterday. The Government will introduce several measures of importance, including a Bill for the Amend- ment of the Constitution Act, an Electoral Bill, Bills for the construction of Tramways, and several others. Mr. Bonney has been appointed one of the Valuators of Runs. Mr. E. T. Wildman, Secretary to the Com- missioner of Crown Lands, has been charged with embezzling property of the Government to the amount of some £1,400.

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

MISCELLANEOUS. A serious conflagration has taken place at Drammen, on the southern coast of Norway. Three hundred houses were burnt down, render- ing 6000 persons homeless. The ' Telegraph of Kiew ' announces that the cholera has appeared in Southern Russia, and fallen with great virulence on the towns of Ouman and Krementchong. The prorogation of Parliament by Com- mission, it is understood, will take place on Saturday, the 4th of August. The Fenian movement has collapsed in America although the redoubtable Huberts still promises independence to Ireland. The new English Ministry is exclusively conservative. Great changes have been resolved upon in Military and Naval Departments. Orders have been issued for arming the soldiers with breech-loaders, and turning wood- en-walls into turret-ships and iron-clads. The Porte has decided on recognising Prince Charles as Hospodar. The O'Donuell Ministry has been obliged to resign, and has been succeeded by a new cabinet under Narvaiz. The Emp...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

MISCELLANEOUS. The riots in Hyde-park continued in some degree on the afternoon and night of July 24. A vast number of people, drawn together chiefly by curiosity, were about the park all day, and as the evening approached they were reinforced by others on the look-out for mischief and for the chance of indulging their natural antipathy to the police. Several small conflicts occurred at various points, and some heads were broken. The soldiers were called out, and stationed in the Bayswater-road, and in the new road in the park, to prevent the mob from getting hold of the stones and brickbats of which they made such liberal use the evening before. Some who found the" proceedings in the park too tame for them adjourned to the streets, and a good many windows were broken, apparently for no object whatever. The Athenaeum and United Service Clubs, as well as a number of private houses, were thus assailed. The body of a lad about 14 years of age, who had been crushed in the park between t...

COAL OILS AND PETROLEUM. (From the Scientific American.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

COAL OILS AND PETROLEUM. (From the Scientific American.) COAL oil is produced by the distillation of bituminous coal or shale at a low heat, has of late years been largely employed under the name of kersosene for illuminating purposes, but a similar article produced at less cost from petroleum has nearly supplanted it for the same pui'pose. PETROLEUM is the crude oil issuing from springs or artificial wells, and is obtained largely thus in the United States, Canada, and elsewhere, and especially in Rangoon, in Bur- mah. It may vary in specific gravity from ?800 to -900, but is usually about -820 ; the lowest gravities having usually the highest color, and those found in Canada being darker and more offensive in odor than those in the United States. Petroleum contains the lighter oil svolatile at the ordinary temperature of the air, and is, therefore, unsafe for use in lamps. These, with other products, are separated by distillation in the following order :-naphtha, benzine, kerosene...

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

fortfe êa^tte # HI. ¡|. Simis. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Sliakspeare. pSDAYTsEplcEMBËR^ïrïs^ WE understand that Dr. Dickey, the gentleman who arrived by the last over- land mail from England, to take medical charge of the pensioner force at Fre- mantle, reports that just previous to the steamer leaving Galle, a telegram was received to the effect that the Empeior Napoleon had demanded the cession to France of the Rhine Provinces. Some- thing of this kind had, we know, been generally expected ; if it has really been made, it is to* be feared we have been too premature in supposing that the triumph of Prussia against Austria would con- clude the war, but that instead of its being productive of peace it will prove to be in reality but the forerunner of another sanguinary struggle, as it is scarcely to be supposed that elated with success Prussia will consent to quietly resign those rich and populous provinces, th...

GUILDFORD. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

GUILDFORD. THERE was a very pleasant gathering at Guildford on Wednesday, on the occa- sion of the Annual Meeting of the Agri- cultural Society and the show of stock and garden produce, the attendance of visitors as well as members being con- siderably larger than last year. The quantity of horned, stock, sheep and pigs exhibited was not so great as it ought to have been considering the extent of the district, and the Judges had but little trouble in allotting their awards. Mr. Brockman's Bull as also his Cow, to which the prizes were awarded, left little to be desired as re- garded symmetry and breeding, but the latter would have shown to greater ad- vantage had she been in better condition. The sheep exhibited occupied only three pens, the prize winners being apparently cross-bred between Leicester and South- down, and were by no means fat, but they have been sometime from their run on the Blackwood. One pig, and one sow with litter were all the porcine race that put in an appeara...

THE METROPOLITAN RIFLE CORPS ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

THE METROPOLITAN RIFLE CORPS ANNIVERSARY. FOE the first time since its formation our Me- tropolitan Rifle Corps was favored with a fine day for the celebration of the Anniversary. At the request of Lieut.-Col Bruce His Excellency kindly directed the day to be observed as a public holiday at the Public Offices, and a gene- ral suspension of business took place in the city, which was availed of by the inhabitants in pic- nic excursions, &c. At half-past eight those members of the Corps who intended to enter into competition for the Prizes offered, assembled in Hay-street to the number of fifty-three, and thence marched to the range on Mount Eliza headed by their band, and the firing commenced at ten o'clock. Although the day was a fine one for pleasure seekers it soon became evident it was too fine to allow of good shooting, the glare of the sun and the heat being so intense as to throw out of their calculations all the best marksmen of the company, and the result of the compe...

THE INDIAN MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

THE INDIAN MOTHER. The sun had reached meridian height, And, pouring streams of golden light On India's waving plain, In snow-white robes saw numbers crowd The banks of Ganges' ample flood, With alms for idols vain. Most lovely women met the eye, Beneath that burning Indian sky, With offerings rich and rare ; One graceful form went gliding on, Around whose head bright jewels shone, Amid her raven hair. Close to her neck her infant clung, While from her eyes a fountain sprung A flood of bitter tears ; 'Tis sweet to die by Gunga, child ! I give thee to her waters wild, To free my soul from fears. She plucks the rushes green and rank, With sweet white lilies from the bank, And weaves a basket fair, Then in the midst she placed her child, And on its brow the flowrets wild Were wreathed among its hair. * Gunga ! forgive this falling tear ; In love receive my infant dear, My son, my first-born child;' One push-and in its fragile boat The little one begins to float, O'er Ganges' waters wil...

REFORM DEMONSTRATION IN HYDE-PARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

REFORM DEMONSTRATION IN HTDE-PARK. A grand demonstration in lavour of Parlia- mentary Reform has not terminated so peace- ably as its promoters anticipated. When it became known that the police had received instructions to prevent a meeting being held in Hyde-park, a written notice was forwarded by the " Demonstration Committee" to the various sub-committees, to the effect that the members were to march in procession to the park, and if prevented from entering it were then to form four deep and proceed by way of Grosvenor Ïlace, Victoria-street, and past the Houses of 'arliament to Trafalgar-square. The notice also alluded to the circumstance of the police acting under the orders of a Tory Government, and concluded by exhorting those to 'whom it was addressed to show by, their peaceable and orderly conduct that they were determined to have manhood suffrage and the ballot. In ac- cordance'with previous arrangements proces- sions were formed shortly after 6 o'clock on the afternoon of...

WHAT IS COAL? (FROM PAGE'S GEOLOGY FOR GENERAL READERS.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

WHAT IS COAL ? (FEOM PAGE'S GEOLOGY FOE GENERAL HEADERS.) What is coal Pisa question more satisfactorily answered by a little roundabout explanation than by a direct reply. To say that coal is altered and mineralised vegetable matter is true ; but the definition is too curt to be readily intelligible. Everybody knows something of peat and peat-mosses. Well, this peat is simply coal in its first stage of development. Were the peat-moss submerged and covered over by deposits of mud, and clay, and sand, it would in course of time undergo important chemical changes, by which part of its gaseous contents (oxygen, hydrogen, &c.) would be discharged, and the mass reduced to a compact coaly sub- stance known as lignite or brown coal. Such brown coals are abundant in many countries (Germany, Austria, New Zealand, &c.) and worked for economical purposes; and were they subjected to still further changes, they would in course of ages become converted into shining stony coal, lik...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. THUESDAY, September 20,1866. AU the members were present with the ex- ception of Mr. Samson. In reply to a question by Mr. Phillips His Excellency read a despatch he had sent to the Secretary of State, referring to the arrangements to be made respecting the future maintenance of convicts after the cessation of transportation. The Secretary of State's reply postponed con- sideration of the question until nearer the con- clusion of the term, which expires at the end of next year. His Excellency also replied to another question from Mr. Phillips as to th8 Sound road, that he had not received any report from the police on the subject, but that he had infor- mation from a competent person, and that a warder and addition to the road parties would shortly be sent. The Scab Question was fully discussed, and it was ultimately decided to appoint a Com- mittee-the Colonial Treasurer, the Attorney General, and Messrs. Hardey and Phillips, to draw up from the papers before t...

COLONIZATION AND ITS DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 September 1866

COLONIZATION AND ITS DUTIES. THE development of colonization is perhaps more suggestive ofserious thought than any ofthe great movements which belong to the last two or three centuries. ' If our subject be inferior to other questions in immediate or populárcon cern, it is only because the personality of in- terest is to some extent sacrificed in its very vastness. The wider the view we take, the more we look at society as a whole, and include in one survey the welfare of the future with that of the present, the more imposing become» itB aspect. Every previous effort of the kind becomes dwarfed in comparison ; we feel we have to deal with an agency so changed in the scale of its dimensions, as to be a new thing in the world. The ancient Greeks possessed, it is true, iii a very remarkable degree the genius and capa- city for colonizing, and, so far forth the Hel- lenic influence was increased both in its own . age and for after times. But the colonies of Greece were but isolated towns...
