I, Mr. P. Roe, and GK Wundall (native) were absent ten days, and got over a distance of about two hundred miles, in various directions, examining the country for water to move the party up, but without success. During our progress we passed over some very fine grassy plains and flats, with an abundance of kangaroo of various species; emus likewise plentiful. We shot some of either. We saw but one turkey, all being however evidences, I conceive, of a good country; nevertheless, I found i...

SIGNS OF THE WEATHER. (Edinburgh Review of July.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 September 1866

SIGNS OF THE WEATHER. (Edinburgh Review of July.,) "The Science of the Weather, taking that term in its largest sense, as comprehending the fruits of daily meteorological observation, is the most popular of ali topics and the most familiar of ali inquiries, yet it is the least systematic and the most backward of all the sciences founded on induction. In one view ali mankind are making loose observations and vague prophecies about the weather, for the business and the en- joyments of each day are continually affected by it. This is pre-eminently the knowledge which ' comes home to men's business and bosoms.' The child with his toys and projects, the youth with his sports and holidays, the man with his infinite variety ot pursuits and under- takings, each and all look at the skies, note the winds, and observe the clouds. What these presage is the first theme of the morning, the proverbial sequence to an Englishman's greet- ing, the earliest and latest topic amongst cultiva- tors of th...

THE AGE OF OUR CONTINENT. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 September 1866

THE AGE OF OUR CONTINENT. BY THE REV. J. E. TENISON WOODS, F.G.S. F.L.S., Ac. [From the Australasian.'] I think it has beenclearly shown that the arguments, or rather assertions, about the ex- treme antiquity of Australia are unsound, nay, quite utenable. What I have now to say will serve for a recapitulation and fair statement of the case. I want to reconstruct, and no longer to oppose objections ; but after what has been said, I must deal with facts and not theories, with certainties and not with probabilities. For instance, I land upon the southern shores of our continent, anywhere, except perhaps about Wilson's Promontory, or between Cape Otway and Warrnambool. When I have cleared the ridges of fine sand which line our shores, I find myself upon a level country of good soil, but more or less interrupted by salt marshes. I pass for the present such places as those which are interrupted by modern but extinct volcanoes. Well, these salt marshes all resemble each other in one partic...

?ftxvts$ttuhtutt. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIB,-Every locality has its gala day, and every one has his own idea of social enjoyment. VA Your readers are aware that the Annual Show of the Swan Agricultural and Horticultural Society was held at Guildford on the 19tn inst. ; ,, bat-perhaps they are not aware of the peculiar method some people have of enjoying them- selves. The show of wine, fruit, and vege- tables was held in the Mechanics' Hall kindly lent for the occasion free of charge, and the public were freely admitted without any pay ¿ ¿ment for entrance. So far everything was very \liberal and very satisfactory; but whilst the **JHkJbeae and more civilized part of the commu 'nity were holding their annual meeting in an- other place, and during the temporary absence x «of the officers of the society, the company in the Hall took the law into their own hands, and everyone did what was right in their own eyes. 1 The onslaught was furious, and the sacking ...

It is undoubtedly a fair statement of the case, but is ob- viously intended as a glorification of His Excellency's talents as the manager of the Convict Department, a fact we believe no person in the colony has ever disputed ; on the contrary, the general opinion has always been that if we had from the first had him in the position of Comptroller General, and a Governor with an ener- getic mind and advan...

Summary for the Mail. THE Political events of the month have been confined to three meetings of the Legislative Council, and the publication of a correspondence between Mr. W. P. Clifton and the Acting Comptroller General. In the Council on the 13th Instant, His Excellency had again to impart the information that the mail from England had brought him no despatches respect- ing the proposed alteration in the Legis- lature. The second reading of the Scab Bill having been proposed, there was read a Synopsis of a large number of papers on the subject which had been received by the Government from dif- ferent stock-owners and Agricultural Societies, expressing the most varied and contradictory opinions as to what regu lations for the eradication of the disease would be most suitable for the purpose. The papers themselves were so volumi- nous that His Excellency suggested the farther consideration of the Bul should be adjourned,, in order to allow the members time to make themselves acqua...

THE AGE OF OUR CONTINENT. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 5 October 1866

THE AGE OF OUR CONTINENT. BY REV. J. E. TENISON WOODS, F.G.S., &c. (Concluded from our last.) I begin with reference from facts, thus : Australia has a marvellous and unaccountable difference in the flora of her eastern and west- ern sides. This is a fact. From it I infer that there must at one time have been a separation between the two parts of the continent. This inference may not seem clear, but other facts confirm it. For instance, there is a greater difference between the flora of Victoria.and that of Western Australia than there is between Victoria and the rest of the world. And yet it is remarkable that the genera are the same. Gum trees, honeysuckles, tea trees, and acacias abound in both, but not a species is alike in both. Thus there are 133'acacia, 55 eucalypti, 27 melaleuca, and 15 Banksia? in South-east Australia, according to Hooker, and not one ot the same species is found in Western Australia ; yet the same district has 100 melaleuca, 99 acacia, 46 eucalypti...
