GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 December 1866

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) On the 29th Ivov., a Meeting of the Swan Agricultural Society took place, but instead of confining themselves to the subject for which it was called, other matters of complaint were entered into, and the proceedings became so irregular, that at last a protest was made against them. The Secretary unable to b» present sent a pro tem. On the 4th instant, the Guildford School, which now numbers about 140, boys and girls, was inspected by Mr. Adkinsou and the Local Board. In a case of trespass the same day a singular accident happened to an old Scotchwoman : a flock of goats over the water in the habit of browsing on forbidden ground was marched off by the old couple to be impounded j the road being a circuitous one of three miles his majesty among the goats protested against the journey, and fell, the old woman to the ground, where she lay from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. j her husband, so eager to mark the enemies of civilization, alter repelling an attack...

tempwiMi«. . v To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. Deae. Sib,-I am quite "non-plushed," "over comed." I have been reading the letter of " A ^ Volunteer" published in your contemporary of ~, to-day. I have been thinking how very grati ^ fied all my Fremantle friends-all your Perth citizens-all in the Agricultural line-will be to read this further record of so great and glorious an event as the one " A Volunteer" has so minutely dilated upon. I am so filled with the ' idea that this memovable occasion is one worthy of being laid in all its entiety before my fellow colonists, that I should myself very much like to enlarge upon " A Volunteer's" graphic ac- count. But I cannot do it to-night. Such an, I attempt would require a greater state of equa- ls nimity than I am just now blessed with.

YORK. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 December 1866

YORK. (From our own Correspondent.) On Wednesday evening, the 28th ult, a most J interesting and well-written Lecture was de*>^ livered in our Mechanics' Institute by Waldyne W. Tarleton, Esq., on the subject of "(The Crimes of Mary and their consequences." The evening's amusement was considerably in- creased by occupying the space of time between the first and second part of the subject by some very ably executed music. The first part of the lecture consisted of an account of Mary's early education, natural character, her temptations, and how she fell betöre them; the lecturer taking care to describe the conduct of the Scotch reformers merely in connection with the Queen. The whole was brought to a close by an able description of the religious and political position of Scotland at that time. The second part opened with a short account of the history and character of Elizabeth, her behaviour to the Queen of the' Scots, together with those,unfortunate conspiracies that led to her ...

VICTORIA PLAINS. | - - - . » i ' (From a Correspondent.) I On Sunday, the 25th November, the very in- teresting and rare ceremony of the marriage of r a native man and woman, took place at the . Benedictine Mission, Victoria Plains. The ^ bride and bridegroom having been educated at the Mission, were bound together in holy matri- mony according to the rites and ceremonies of tua Catholic Church.

WARREN RIVER. 20th November, 1866. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 December 1866

WARREN RIVER. 20th November, 1866. (From a Correspondent.) Four men absconded on Saturday night, the 17th, from the Warren Bridge Party An ex- press was immediately forwarded to P. C. Moul- ton, Blackwood Station, (60 miles), on Sunday, and on Monday shortly after 12 a.m., that active officer was on the spot aud looking for traces. I have no doubt he will soon give an account of them, as the absconders «rill find travelling and obtaining food in this country no easy task. The party under Warder Townsend, although a very short time here, have made quite a show and are pushing on actively with the work, viz., the much wanted bridge across the Warren. The settlers are now drawing in the timber for the work, but experience great difficulties .from the absence ot whims, some of the logs for sawing being-very heavy, more especially as the work seems destined to fall on one or two of the ?nearest of the settlers. I am happy to say that the country on the Warren this year looks well, better...

WHAT THE QUEEN THINKS OF LOWBREASTED [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 7 December 1866

What the Queen thinks of Lowbreasted Déesses.-Attention has been repeatedly called of late to an increasing tendency among the female portion of the beau monde to limit themselves such scantiness of toilette in their evening attire as to offend good taste, if not decency itself. According to the well-informed London correspondent of Scunders's News Letter, the offence has received " a heavy blow and sore discouragement " in the very highest quarter, which it is hoped may turn the fashion -for it is only that, after all-in a more de-J corns direction.

1 Çertft êajctte * IL %. ttimw. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1866. We believe we are fully justified in as- serting that the course of events during the seventeen months which have passed since the presentation of the Petition for an amended form of Legislature, and the admission of the settlers to elective rights, has caused a large majority of those who then declined to join in the movement, to alter their ideas, and a fresh attempt to prove to our present legislators how general is the desire for a change, would meet with such an increased amount of support, as we might hope would ensure it better treatment than being thrown over by a side wind. We have had some additional proofs of its being any- thing but conducive to the jn'Ogress of the colony that, in all its undertakings for the promotion of its interests, it should be, in the first instance, subject to the domination of o...

Southern Districts Agricultural Society.

Although a large amount of pasture has been leased during the current year, they feel confi deut in stating that a considerable additional amount of country suitable for sheep aud cattle purposes will be taken up in the next. Your Committee feel safe in repoiting their conviction that the Southern runs, owing to the nature of the pastuiuge, with its supply of creepers and esculent plants, and abundant springs of water, are capable of feeding the same amount of stock or sheep, in the same number of acres, as any other district in the colony. Added to this, t...

BUNBURY. (From our'own Correspondent)' Tne.-.annual 'Meeting and.

The show of cattle was limited, but also with an improvement in quality. The contest in wines lay between three growers only, but will we hope become more important and general in future, when the necessary distinction between dry and sweet wines will no doubt be made and separate prizes awarded. The weather was most favorable, and the number of visitors and settlers collected very encouraging, though the attendance at the Society's meeting in the afternoon might have been fuller-as it was, there were present, not more than 35 out of more than 60.

SCAB IN SHEEP. No. III. From the Australasian. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 December 1866

SCAB IN SHEEP. No. m. MB. BEUCE'S ESSAY. From the Australasian. In the book upon which we are com- menting are two sketches of plans of yards in connection with the dip, which the author thinks most convenient for the sheep-owner to construct when he finds that dipping, and nothing else than dip- ping must be resorted to. Many holders have their washing-pens and catching yards made in such a way that very little besides the actual dip and heating appa- ratus need be added. Others, again, pride themselves upon having an ingeni- ous turn of mind, and prefer planning their own yards to adopting other people's ideas, so that we do not see the necessity of transferring the diagrams in the essay to these columns. The method usually adopted is to so plan the yards that a continous stream of sheep may slowly enter the race, be precipitated into the dip, and be allowed to make their exit up the battened slopingpassageintothedrain ing yards when they have been sufficiently long in the dip.

BEST SORTS OF GRAPE FOR WINEMAKING IN AUSTRALIA. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 December 1866

BEST SORTS OP GRAPE FOR WINE MAKING IN AUSTRALIA. [From the Australasian.'] Of the many varieties of the vine, only a few have been found, so far, to be worthy of culti- vation here for wine-making purposes. Doubt- less others will be added in time to the short list, but, hitherto, experience has proved that many sorts highly esteemed elsewhere are of little value in these colonies. It is not true that the good qualities of each variety depend more on soil and climate, and the circumstances generally under which it is grown, than on any persistent characteristics of the vine itself, for each sort maintains its peculiarities of habit in a greater or less degree wherever it is grown, although these may become materially modified, the changes being more apparent in ¡some sorts than in others. The bearing capabilities of a vine may vary greatly in different countries, but the flavour of the grape remains much the same wherever it can ripen thoroughly, al- though on this very point of ri...
