The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

®{r* ê$m Cotamir. TO THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TlMES. It is not often, dear Mr. Editor, that I am tempted to take up ray pen or make your columns the medium of contradicting anyone, particularly a Volunteer. But one of that honourable Corps, in the Perth Gazette, Beemsto have gone to great pains and trouble in gather- ing information upon a subject which he is quite incompetent to discuss, and has written a very watery and wrathy epistle upon the misappro- priation of the ¿£100 given at our Annual Races held on the banks of the Swan. He thinks, he spies a remote chance of getting the ¿100 into his own pocket. The Queen's Plate ought, he thinks, to be given to buy prizes for deserving marksmen among the Volunteers. A medal would look* well on his breast. He would be able to tell his children with noble pride, " It is a Medal, won by my skill and prowess." The Silver Cup, too, would look well on his sideboard, provided he be able to fill it for his friends at proper times. I think " A V...

PERTH BUILDING, INVESTMENT, AND LOAN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

PERTH BUILDING, INVESTMENT, AND LOAN SOCIETY. THE first Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders of this flourishing and useful Society was held in the Museum .of the Mechanics' Institute on Tuesday evening last, on which occasion His Ex- cellency the Governor, as its Patron, presided. We have not space this week to give any of the speeches ; suffice it to say, that they were all of a most pleasing and cheerful character, and gave the shareholders every assurance of the ul- timate complete success of the Asso- ciation. After His Excellency had spoken of the good which the Society and analo- gous institutions in Perth were calculated to do for the community generally, the Secretary was called upon to read the following

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Ia the Perth Gazette of 13th October, a letter appears signed "An Old Subscriber," who advocates the policy Governor Kennedy adopted, of selling a man 40 acres of land for its full value, and giving him in addition a continual run for 10 head of breeding stock, out of any man's hired squat in which he made his purchase, without making any compensation to the hirer of such squat. " Old Subscriber's" selfishness may be thus summed up ; he wishes to get good land at 10s. per acre, and take away the squatter's stock run for his own use without paying him, or any one else. Is this right P for the present regu- lations stand thus:-If a corn-grower buys 40 acres of land out of a squatter's 10,000 acre run, he gets those 400 acres for ¿£200 : that is to say he gets land as full value for his money, and if the 10,000 acre run contains feed only for 100 head of horned stock or horses (and there are plenty of stock runs that will not carry more), then the...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

York. A PIECE of ore was lately brought in from the Williams River by Mr. Michael Quinn, which was thought to be lead, but on being smelted it was found to contain a quantity of silver. Three-quarters of a square inch of the ore produced about a quarter of on ounce of silver. A short time ago a shepherd of Mr. Strange's (about 7 miles from York) left his flock without any protection in the bush, and made off with a quantity of his master's property, supposedly     to King George's Sound. On discovering   his absence, Mr. Strange rode into York for a warrant for his apprehension, but no Magis- trate could be met with. They were visiting road parties, many miles distant. It is too much to expect the resident to perform all the duties of a Magistrate in a place like York, and yet be bound to visit road parties 24 miles away-giving him a day's journey of nearly 50 miles to accomplish in one direction alone.

THE JAIL AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

THE JAIL AT PERTH. WE doubt whether the Governor, or any Member of his Council, has ever been in Perth Jail. Of course His Ex- cellency could only have been there as a visitor, and we feel almost equally positive that none of the Members of Council have ever been taken up, even on sus- picion. Yet we must say, without any feeling of unkindness or ill-will, and simply on public grounds, we should like to hear that the whole of the Council (Executive and Legislative), like the cele- brated Five Members^ of Parliament in the days of the Frst Charles, had been summarily ordered into custody, and consigned to the care of Mr. Benson for the term of 24 hours. Notwithstanding every attention on his part, it is certain they would all think twenty-four hours in Perth Jail sufficient punishment for any offence short of wilful murder. Situated within two strides of the almost tideless expanse called Perth-water, it is, in the first place, unhealthy, and therefore unfit for the abode of human be...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE SPECTRE GUEST. [Continued.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

te Cpmiwg "Book Tales for Country Readers. -* THE SPECTRE GUEST. the late M. R. MITTOBD.) [Continued."] WALDBICH, at the request of Frau Bantes, had repaired to Frederika's apartment. The maiden was seated at the window, her forehead resting on the new harp. " Fraulein, mamma wishes to know if it would be agreeable to you to make a little excursion this fine day, in the open air?" Frederika made no reply, but turned her face still more towards the window. " Your Grace is not displeased ?" in- quired Waldrich, who believed that she was trifling with him. " I have had no breakfast, nor inclination, to take a cup of chocolate, until I learn your Grace's pleasure. Have I not come home punc- tually, and to a minute, from parade? Have I not given my promise at the table?" _ No answer followed. He stood awhile silent, and then moved towards the door, as if going away ; then, turning round he said, somewhat impatiently, " Are you coming, dear Rika ? the weather is glorious." There followed ...

DEPUTY-I am rejoiced, my dear Miss Crump, to find that your talented nephew is sufficiently recovered to be able to attend our Receptions again.

Purity like yours shrinks back with natural alarm from this sad, con- fession. Miss CBUMP-Mr. Deputy, I beg, if it be anything I ought not to hear, you will not mention it. ME.

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

Uü %ntxühxí %im%. DISCITE JUSTITIAR, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10,1863. LAST week's Inquirer contained an article with which we entirely agree. It pointed out the many blessings which our Colo- nists really possess, but of which, from their continual murmuring and discon- tent, they would seem to be ignorant. If their pockets be not actually filled with hard cash, they can shew in their garners and stock-yards a great deal of that wealth which is elsewhere seldom ac- quired without money. They have flocks and herds, crops and fruits, and a climate which disarms Poverty of half her stings. Look at the poor in England, shivering in their fireless abodes ; many families huddled together in one wretched house several often in the same room. Seldom a single one of such dwellings with- out fever as well as starvation; misery and disease crushing the inmates to despair. Here, let us indeed be thank- ful, there is no such wretchedness scarcely even a solitary instance bro...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 December 1863

To THE EDITOE or THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-In a late issue of your paper, a York Correspondent states that much annoyance is felt, owing to the Proprietor of the Castle Hotel having lost his license ; but he forgets to say by whom the annoyance is felt j it is not by the Public generally, whose interest-as well as duty-it is to uphold the Magistrates in .enfor- cing the laws ; and all who remember the nu- merous warnings administered, cannot accuse the Bench of want of forbearance. Your Correspondent considers the Castle Ho- tel to be the best appointed house in the Colony ; but, even if such were the case, the fact of a house being well-appointed, is no proof of its being equally well-conducted. With regard to the Government having dictated to the Bench, it seems a very unlikely step for them to éake, and quite an unnecessary one, as the Publicans' ,> Act makes the Magistrate's duty sufficiently plain; Individually, I have no interest in this mat- ter ; but I consider that public ac...

Review. Natural History and Sport in Moray. By the late Charles St. John. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

gábfir. Natural History and Sport in Moray. By the late Charles St. John. Opportunities of studying the habits of animals were obtained by this author during a residence of many years in various parts of the North of Scotland, but chiefly in Morayshire, where he spent the last ten years of his life. CHANGE OP COLOUR IN FISH.-" Put a living block trout into a white basin of water, and it. becomes, within half an hour, of a light colour. Keep the fish living in a white jar for some days, and it becomes absolutely white; but put it into a dark-coloured OT black vessel, and although, on first being 'placed there, the white-coloured fish shows most conspicuously on the black ground, in a quarter of an hour it becomes as dark-coloured as the bottom of the jar, and consequently difficult to be seen. No doubt this facility of adapting its colojir to the bottom of the water in which it lives is of the greatest service to the fish in protecting it from its numerous enemies. All anglers must h...

Eastern Colonies. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. A great deal of sickness has prevailed in and around Adelaide, owing chiefly to the wet season. The Prince of Wales's birthday was kept as a public holiday, and observed with every demonstration of loyality. Mr. Hargraves is prosecuting his search for gold in the south, and will make his way north- ward. No report of his proceedings has yet been published.

WEST AUSTRALIAN TIMES. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, DECEMBER 17,1863. JAILS AND LUNATIC ASYLUMS. SINCE our article last week we are happy to learn that steps have been taken to lessen some of the evils therein alluded to. The GOVERNOR, we are informed, has always taken great interest in this subject, and makes a point of frequently visiting the prison, or Lock-up, as it is properly called-for in point of fact it is not a gaol. As regards the neatness, cleanliness, and order of the place, nothing could be better. It could not be better managed than it is by MR. BENSON. What we object to is simply the inadequacy of the building to the re- quirements of the Colony. We are told that the Colonial prisoners will be removed to the prison now used for Convicts (which in fact is the Colonial gaol), when- ever there is room for their accommoda- tion. So soon as ever the Government is in funds, we hope accommodation will be provided there. All we ask for, is that the ...
