THE END OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 October 1866

THE END OF THE WAR. Ratifications of the preliminaries of peace be- tween Prussia and Austria were e xchanged at Nikolsburg, the Prussian headquarters, on Saturday, July 28. An armistice was also signed with Bavaria. When negotiations for a peace had thus far advanced, a demand was made upon Prussia by France, requiring in general terms a rectifica- tion of frontier, which was generally supposed to mean the restoration to France of the Rhine provinces. It excited apprehension in all quar- ters ; but the alarm was soon set at rest by the following telegram a few days afterwards : " The emperor has received in private audience the Prussian ambassador at Paris, who delivered to his majesty the reply of the Prussian cabinet to the French note expressing a wish for the rectification of the French frontier. The Prus- sian government declared any such rectification to be inadmissible. His majesty, in reply, stated to Count von Goltz that it was in order to satisfy public opinion in France ...

GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 October 1866

GOSSIP. GOSSIP says that His Excellency became painfully prostrated after reading his despatches on Tuesday, and spiritual assistance was ob- liged to be resorted to. Change of scene being considered advisable His Excellency proceeded to Fremantle and took a refreshing sight at "Moondyne Joe," chained to a post in a yard   in the Convict Establishment, after which he was able to return to Perth with his mind in its normal state of placidity. It is not said whether the " spiritual assistance" referred to was the prayers and blessings of the Clergy. GOSSIP says that no one was more surprised at the result of the indictment against them than were the convicts Scholes, and Duffy, who had never anticipated but that they would be hung for shooting at Mr. Pascoe. GOSSIP says it is evident His Excellency has not received the appointment of his son as Comptroller General, or it would have been made public at once ; but private letters report it as likely that the appointment wil...

FEΣIir0CT05EElL^186a IN consequence of the unexpected length of our Legislative Council Report, we have been obliged to omit a leading arti- cle we had prepared.

GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 October 1866

GOSSIP. GOSSIP says that it the Masonic Fraternity of ancient times took as much time, com- paratively, in erecting the European Cathedrals, as the brethren of this colony in building their " Hall," they were " very slow coaches." GOSSIP, at Fremantle, says that Mr. G. E. Hampton is going in Btrong as a moral reformer, having sternly reproved a Commissariat laborer for using an oath as he passed, and threatened to have him dismissed if he so offended again. GOSSIP says that the Horticultural Society's Exhibition on Wednesday last was an unex- pected success, and that the vegetables exhibited were such as, of their kind, could not be ex- celled in any part of Her Majesty's dominions. Also, that His Excellency's success in carrying off prizes, was a capital illustration of what can be done with an unlimited supply of convict labor and manure from the police stables ; the show of the vegetables produced with the aid of the latter being an ' ample repayment to the public for its loss to...

GUILDFORD. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 October 1866

GUILDFOBD. (From a Corespondent.) Since my last communication four men es- caped from the depot in Guildford, but were re- taken ere the sun had set and scarce a mile of travel gone over by them. Some imagine that men roam outside the walls during night, and if not missed, return before morning. This I hope is only imagined. It appears to have been a party of three or more men who took advantage of a dead dog that I alluded to, and from their having used the same words " how shall we get in," I learn that a second attempt was made that night lower down the river. Though they were off too soon to get their dessert, another attempt will find a " Victor" awaiting them. We have a handy class of men whobring wares to our doors, saving the trouble of shopping. Does it not occur to purchasers that some of this class are of doubtful character, and be- coming ex-pedlars, their knowledge of locality thus obtained might tempt them to turn it to further account ?

NORTHAM. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 October 1866

NORTHAM. (From our own Correspondent.) I have allowed a longer time than usual to elapse without giving you any of our sayings and doings, for which I must apologise, having no good excuse to offer. Since my last we have had a Ploughing Match, a Reading at the Me- chanics' Institute, and. a -- stop, let me think what else we have had-not a number of Pensioners located here I know-Oh I have it ! a first-rate Dinner at the conclusion of the Ploughing Match in connexion with that useful Society-the Farmers' Club. Those things have occurred so long since that I must only briefly notice them now. Ten ploughs were entered at the match; the work was a great improve- ment on last year; the amount paid for prizes was about ¿624, including the expenses of the rural sports. The dinner in the evening was well attended and was all that could be desired in every respect. The Reading given by E. R.
