SOCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 10 October 1868
SOCIAL. We seldom have much of interest to report under this head. Very few sensational oc currences take place here, and Newspaper writers are driven'to their wit's end for startling intelligence. Sone little interest has just' been excitedf by the publication of p~atliamen tary papers, having reference to the management of the Convict Prison at Fremantle during the administration of Governor Hampton. The .subject is fully reviewed in another column and our readers will be able to judge for themselves how far Governor Hampton is responsible for the severities and cruelties practised. The subject was taken up in England by the Howard Association, and some letters and a petition purporting to be from the Convicts in the Fre mantle prison where published in the Evening Star.. A copy of this paper happening to come under the eye of Governor Hampton he, without waiting to be caled upon for an explanation, at once addressed, a communication to the Home Secretary. denying the truth of the...
COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 10 October 1868
COMMERCIAL. We have no change to report since our last. Business is dull, owing to the scarcity of ship ping. ad the slow approach of surmbnr. It may however be expected to improve immediately. If a total absence of insolvencies may be taken as an index of the prosperity of a community, we must be very prosperous, for insolvency is extremely rare and the few cases that do occuir are of the most trifling character. The Banks are easy and liberal, and apparently never did things look more snug, secure and satisfactory. With a. well considered Immigration system aind the judicious expenditure of borrowed capi tal on the construction of reproductive-public works, there is no earthly reason why this coloy should not in a very few years rival her neigh-. bors in wealth and importance.

LABOR AND IMMIGRATION?. The demand for labor of all description still continues, .

PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 10 October 1868
PUBLIC WORKS. The plan and explanation by W. Bickley Esq. of a proposed Breakwater at Premantle pub lished in our last Summary provoked a display of opposition, and it was recommended as cheaper and more practicable to remlove the bar at thd mouth of the river, and deepelt the channel of the river to such an extent as would admit of vessels of 500 tons burden going to Perth- about as practicable a project as a railway to the moon. The fact is, however it may be op posed, a Breakwater at Fremantle is the only possible way tB improving the Harbor, and in spite ofall: objections, it will sooner or later have to be done--it caninot be put off without greatly retarding the progress of the colony. * We understand it is the intention of the Go vernment to abandon the works at the North endof the river bar, and to clear the natural channel at the South end. Every practicable man condemned the attemptto make a navigable passage at the North end, but the Governor with his usual ebstinacy pers...

W shalil at once.proceed to redeem the jpledge given ini'our. -last issue, that we wrore in a conidition to prove the system of penal discipline as carried out since thle arrival of Governor Hampton, has been unnecessarily, and as far as results ?hew,:uselessly severeand cruel. In the eairly part of 1867 we were of fered for insertion the document purpor ;ting to be a M~nemorial from the convicts of W. Australia. Having perused its con tents, and considered all the allegations in it, we declined to give it publication. It was subsequently tendered as an ad vertisement, and we reluctantly placed it in our advertising columns. The Memo rial had previously appeared in a London Journal. it contained, mixed up with much that was true, matter that was totally irrele vant to the condition of the supposed Memorialists, many misstatements, and not a few misconceptions of the laws re gulating prison discipline, concluding with an ultimatum as unseemly as it' was impotent..

Enrolled Force Office, Fremantle, - 25 October, 1866. Sir,-I have the honour to report that at about eight o'clock this morning while the chain gang were being inspected in the prison yard, one of the gang struck a warder, who returned the blow; the sergeant of the escort would have &nbsp; &nbsp; shot the prisoner if he could have done so with out killing the warder. The prisoner seeing the danger of his position at once surrendered, as reported to me by Sergeant Atkinson. &nbsp; I have also to bring under your notice that a prisoner nammed Conner would, in all probabi lity, have assaulted the acting Comptroller General before he left the quarry. T'he prisoner had spoken. to the Comptroller, who ordered him away to his work; the prisoner &nbsp; appeared dissatisfied and excited, went to the place where he had been working, took up a pick-axe, and stepped up on the old road. Cor poral Clayton's full opinion is, that the prisoner intended to assault the...

AUSTRALIAN TEA. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 17 October 1868
Aus' A?RALAN TEA.-We have seen a sample of tea manufactured from leaves taken from plants in the Botatiical Gardens by MIessrs. Deen and Co., a Chinese firm in Edward-street. The head of t'the firm, who is well known in town, appears to understand the process:tea has to undergo before it is suited to the Eur opean taste; and the sample he has now on view-about 21 lbs. weight-bears a strong re semblance to orange pekoe. The manufacturer states that he was quite surprised to find that the tea turned out so well, and affirms that it is equal to the best ten that comes to this mar ket from China, Mr. Deen fulrther infolms us that the process of preparing the tea is quite simple, and he is williug to affbrd every in formation on the subject to persons who v;ill take the trouble to make the necessary ino quires.
