LATEST INTELLIGENCE. HOME NEWS OFFICE, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 26, 1864. AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

LATESÍ INTELLIGENCE. HOME NEWS OFFICE, . WEDNESDAY, OCT. 26, 1864. AMERICA. Our advices iyom New York, received this morning^ are to Oct. 13. The fight- ing before Richmond had not been re- newed since Friday, September 30. General Lee's report of that day's en- gagement on the north of the James River states that he attacked the Fede- rals on the Charles City road, and drove them from two entrenched lines, captur- ing 10 guns. Finding the enemy further strongly entrenched he did not press them. General Gregg was killed. Southern journals claim that the engage- ment was a signal victory, the Federals beiñ¿ driven five miles from the city. Sheridan had returned to Strasburg. He reported that on the 9th October he repulsed Early's cavalry, who followed him to that point, capturing 330 pri- soners and 11 cannon. He declared that he had devastated the whole country be- tween the Blue Ridge and North Mountains, destroying 2000 barns and 70 mills, which were filled with hay, farming imple...

LONDON WOOL REPORT. October 25, 1864. «r^ J^Siñce the close of the last sales the in ^í^gñiiieshave been very limited; the con ^ tmüed. high rates for money and the se- rious failures in the North have led to great caution on the part of both manu ^tourers and merchants, and there has' : been a general contraction of confidence. ;_ ïhe arrivals for next sales are large, and will ^ith the held over and bought in parais make a large, we may say the Jargelt sale ever offered at the close of the' year, and we do . not look for last sales' rates except a great improvement should take place in a general tone of | business.

The ship is also to call at Champion Bay, Tien Tsin Harbor, and Roebuck Bay. Two or three gentlemen .are named as likely to receive the appointment of Resi- dent, but whoever is selecte...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

Círmpnkn«. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sr W. A. Times. Sir,-In requesting the insertion of the fol- lowing remarks it is not my wish to discuss the Convict question, already debated both at Public meetings and by the public press ; the last ac- counts from home bade us to assume that within a short and fixed period convictism ta Western Australia is to cease; hitherto the belief that it was a permanent institution made us somewhat indifferent as to the employment of the convicts placed at the disposal of the colony. The time has however arrived when it becomes a matter of necessity to consider how the muscles of these unfortunate men, to use a conventional phrase, may be utilised to the greatest advantage ; certainly not as hitherto in the erection of Public Buildings for size and style far beyond the requirements of a remote and thinly populated colony. When the staff" of officers connected with the care of convicts the Commissariat, Police, and Resident Magis- trates, must ...

THE WORLD'S BENEFACTOR! [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

THE WORLD'S BENEFACTOR! Who, that has had opportunities of reading, but has heard of the philanthropist, Howard, the greatest part.of whose life was spent in visiting the prisons of Europe, and administer- ing relief to countless numbers of suffering in- mates, and whose name will go down to remo- test time, crowned with the honours which mil- lions yet unborn will bestow upon it P In the same category we may place the name of Miss Nightingale, the devoted, self-sacrificing hero- ine of the Crimea. But while we give due honours to such names, we should do injustice to a noble and generous heart, were we, for one moment, to forget the name of HOLLOWAY. The possessor of an immense fortune, which would allow him to traverse the world in search of pleasure, he chooses, instead, to devote his leisure and his talents to the benefit of his fel- low-creatures, by dispensing among them the most remarkable remedies ever yet compounded, and which he himself discovered after years of unremittin...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

FRANCE. The great majority of the French jour- nals have interpreted the convention to mean the practical abandonment of Rome -first to the Romans, and ultimately to the Italians. This is, to use an expression of the 'Journal des Débats,' Rome, in due time, will fall like a ripe fruit into the kingdom of Italy. It is held, and the circular of M. Droun de Lhuys is cited as a proof thereof, that the Imperial Government is about to withdraw the fo- reign garrison because the Italian Go- vernment has given up its claim to Rome as a right, has undertaken not to attempt the annexation of Rome by force, and is able and determined to frustrate the de- signs of the revolutionary party. But, it is exultingly pointed out, the right of the Romans remains-meaning, of course the right of the Romans to imitate the great French nation and choose the sovereign they prefer. Advices from Rome furnish some de- tails relative to the manifestations pro- duced in that city by the news of the sig- nature o...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. There has been a considerable depre- ciation in the prices of wheat and flour during the present month. Constant ar- rivals of breadstuffs from Chili in the neighbouring colonies have had a very depressing influence, and have prevented the demand for our own produce which was expected. A very limited amount of trade has been transacted here. It will be seen from the table given below that we have already exported about 75,000 tons. This is more than the total amount that was calculated upon at the com- mencement of the season. There is very little now probably left on hand, but this is of the less importance, for new wheat will be in the market within a fortnight. In some of the very early districts reap- ing has already commenced. The ac- counts of the forthcoming harvest differ ; some spots being said to be good, whilst others are very inferior. On the whole, we believe the average yield will be from 15 to 25 per cent, less than it was last year. FLOTTE.-There has...

Arrival of the Mails. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

ar Arrival of the Mails. 3 & THE European October and Colonial November Mails arrived in Perth on Saturday morning at half-past 5. The European intelligence is very uninterest- ing. In England the intelligence of the action taken by the Victorian Government upon the Transportation question, has elicited a .general opinion of disapproval, while at the same time it is evident a universal feeling prevails that, al- though the Anti-Transportationists' proceedings have rendered it more difficult for the Home Government to give way, yet the system must come to an immediate end. In the meantime Governor Hampton remains, we believe, with- out any despatches on the subject. Home political matters seem to be at a stand- still, but it appears probable that Parliament will be dissolved shortly after its meeting, if not before. Her Majesty had not returned from Bal- moral. The Prince and Princess of Wales were on their way home from their visit to Den- mark and Sweeden, and the royal Bab...

THE PROPOSED CONFEDERATION OF THE BRITISH NORTH AMERICAN COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

THE PROPOSED CONFEDERATION OF THE BRITISH NORTH AMERICAN? COLONIES. This movement, which has been in progress for some time past, does not contemplate-though some of its pro- moters do-a formal separation from the British empire ; but there can be little doubt that it really imports a separation. The sense of magnitude and strength, the completer organisation, the infinitely wider scope given to political action, the multiplication and development of Bri- tish-American, apart from Imperial, in- terests, will all be adverse to the continu- ance of a relation the same as, or like, the present; and both countries will be brought face to face with the question whether a downright divorce is or is not the best means of avoiding future occa- sions of irritation, and of bringing home to the British-American people the truth that with them must really rest the# whole duty and responsibility of caring for and defending themselves.

AMERICA. VIRGINIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

AMERICA. VIRGINIA. The political prospect in America is confused and shifting in the extreme, but if one may assume that the Presidential contest will be governed, even at the eleventh hour, by the events of the war, it may be concluded with almost equal probability that these events must be looked for principally in Virginia. Recent information has revealed, with more clearness than formerly, the purpose of General Grant in his late proceedings. After a fortnight of profound inaction, he suddenly massed a heavy force on his extreme left and threw it across the Wel- don- Railroad, a few miles south of Petersburg. There he immediately in- trenched himself. No sooner had the Federals seized the position than, as de- scribed by an observer-on the spot, they " worked like beavers " to protect them- selves against attack, and they have since had a month's time to strengthen these defences. But the quietude about Peters- burg was soon broken, and some success attained by the Federals. On ...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 December 1864

FREMANTLE. Il (From our own Correspondent.) Your readers will doubtless remember tue circumstances connected with an attempt to commit murder and suicide by a man named Coghill, who since the attempt has been a pa- tient in the hospital at the Convict establish- ment; the prisoner who has now nearly re crvered from the effects of his wound, was, on Friday last, the 9th instant, brought up before the Resident Magistrate upon the charge of "wounding with intent," and was committed to take his trial at the ensuing sessions. The victim of his murderous attack is now conva- lescent and out of all danger. 1 understand that Messrs. J. & W. Bateman have received a contract from South Australia to supply a quantity of Telegraph posts, and that a vessel will call here for a cargo some time in March or April next. On Sunday our Volunteers assembled for the usual monthly church parade, and on Monday tnrned out for a moonlight march and were fa- vored with a night so clear that the drill...
