TO SUBSCRIBERS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

TO SUBSCRIBERS.   OUR next issue will be our CHRISTMAS NUM- BER, and will, we venture to flatter ourselves, be thought a desirable number by our readers to transmit to their friends at Home. As it will appear on the day the English Mail goes out, the only mode by which parties at a dis- tance can forward copies will be by writing to the Publisher, with the addresses, and enclosing 6d, or the amount in postage-stamps; sub- scribers, if they prefer it, can have that sum added to their accounts. At Fremantle, the paper may be purchased from the Agent, Mr. D. K. Congdon, and if posted by 4 p.m., will be in time for the mail. Country subscribers who have not yet paid their current quarter's subscription, are re- quested to pay 6s to the District Agent, or to the Publisher, as may be most convenient. Unless parties expressly discontinue the paper by writing to that effect to the Publisher, they will be considered to intend continuing as sub- scribers for the ensuing quarter ;...

The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

The English Mail Arrived at Perth on Monday, being two days later than the mail from the Colonies. There is no news of particular interest. Another great battle has been fought in America, and the Federals have been again beaten. The unfortunate Poles are being gra- dually exterminated in the most fiendish manner. We give a summary below : Her Majesty has been at Balmoral, where she was joined by the Prince and Princess of Prussia; Earl Russell has been making a tour in the north, and addressing large audiences on affairs in general ; Lord Palmerston, whose youth fulness improves with age, has been al- ternating from day to day between town and country, the most cheerful and active of all the Ministers; many idle and roving members of the Lower House have been delivering speeches to their constituents, or descanting upon bucolic affairs at agricultural dinners ; the Social Science Congress has held its gathering in Edin- burgh: and half-a-dozen vacancies in Parliament, occasioned by...

Things not generally known. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

Things not generally known. The contributions of the people, in the time of David, for the Sanctuary exceeded £6,800,000. The immense treasure David is said to have collected for the sanctuary amounted to 889 millions of pounds sterling (Crito says 798 mil- lions)-a sum greater than the British National Debt. The gold with which Solomon overlaid the " most holy place," only a room thirty feet square, amounted to more than thirty-eight millions sterling. * ALL THE GOLD IN THE WOBLD.-Estimate the yard of Gold at ¿2,000,000 which it is in round numbers ; and all the gold in the world might, if melted into ingots, be contained in a cellar twenty-four feet square and sixteen feet high. All the boasted wealth, already obtained (1857) from California and Australia would go into an iron safe nine feet square and nine feet high-so small is the cube of yellow metal that has set populations on the march, and roused the whole world to wonder. ?

êw ê$mm% fÄ Tales for Country Readers. -+ THE SPECTRE GUEST. (By the late M. E. MITFOBD.) [ContmuedJ] No ONE was better pleased with this than the loose Count himself; for by this means he made great advances in a short time with the fair ones. All the while he assured each, by all that was sacred, that he found her companions hateful, only that courtesy obliged him to visit them sometimes. But this avowal ceased to benefit him ; for every one of them in- sisted, as a proof of his love, that he should visit her alone. Apparently con- cerned, he made a counter agreement, namely, a formal betrothal and exchange of rings in the presence of the parents. All this was agreed to, and sealed with a kiss. But even while they kissed, each one said, "Dear Count, why so pale? Do lay off that sable attire, which makes you seem yet paler." Then he answered always : " I wear black because of a vow : when the marriage day comes I shall wear red and white-even, dearest, as thy cheeks." The Count was...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

3%* êprc C0Íiimn. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-I should feel obliged by 'your publishing the enclosed correspondence between the Government and myself. Far from wishing to be on ill terms with His Excellency or the Government, I have been most anxious to explain what ? ever was calculated to give oflence in the expressions which fell from me at the York Dinner, and which were not in- tended to give offence to anyone. I spoke of the Council merely as it is con . stituted. 1 meant to say that four nomi inated members can never be of much avail against a majority consisting of the Governor and the Executive. Therefore a Legislative Council so constituted is ,necessarily little better than a "farce." For instance, we may assume that the Governor and Executive have decided to uphold the Land Regulations, to which (we will assume) all the Independent Members are opposed. What would be the good of our going down and trying to carry our views ? But you, Sir, explained my meaning i...

THE CALAMITY AT GREENOUGH FLATS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 December 1863

THE CALAMITY AT GREENOUGH FLATS. THE destruction of wheat and other grain is now estimated at £2,000, but the losses in fences, farm-implements, pigs, &c., make up about £500 more. Imme- diately on the arrival of the intelligence at Perth, the Bishop, the Commandant, and others of the inhabitants, met at the Public Offices, and having heard from the Colonial Secretary the fullest informa- tion in his power to give as to the origin and extent of the calamity, formed them- selves into a Committee, to collect sub- scriptions for the relief of the sufferers. For the names of the gentlemen who will receive subscriptions, we refer to our advertising columns. The Toronto, at the Vasse, is loading with Timber for Kurrachee with the utmost expedition.

LONDON WOOL REPORT. OCTOBEB 24, 1863. \jy*±UIÍl!*Xb ¿SX, lOUO. During the last fortnight the accounts from the North have imparted considerable firmness to our market and prices have had a hardening tendency ; indeed, during the last few days the inquiries have been on an extensive scale, and although but little business has been transacted, it is owing to the firmness with which both importers and dealers hold their wool-an ave- rage advance of lid. being asked, and in many cases Id. and 1 Jd. has been refused. The presence of a few, and inquiries from many, of the Bradford and Huddersfield dealers is an evidence of their stocks being exhausted ; this, coupled with inquiries for export, has made a very firm market. Our next sales, and the last for the year, are announced for the 5th November. .

Miscellaneous. (From the Home News.) EARTHQUAKE IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

MiscelLanecms. (From the Home News.) EARTHQUAKE IN ENGLAND. In the midst of the many political and social convulsions that are threatening us from various quarters, England has experienced a physical shock, which has tested her moral courage more decisively than a Russian de- claration of war, or a collapse of the alliance with France. Somewhere between twenty minutes and half an hour after 3 o'clock on the morning of the 6th October, 1803-henceforth a memorable day in our chronology-the sounds and vibrations of an earthquake were felt by tens of thousands of persons in almost all ports of England, from the suburbs of the metropolis to the extremities of the kingdom. Such visitations are, happily, so rare in this country that it is not surprising that most persons who were suddenly awakened on this occasion by the violent shaking of their beds, and rattling of theil- windows, should at first have been at a loss to understand what had happened, and should have retained different impr...

®%¿ ©jw êolmn. To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Having noticed two publications since the Southern District Agricultural Society Show, at which the Editor of the Inquirer was present, I am surprised to see one branch (bo- tanical) entirely omitted. As I feel this can- not be from any cause but design, will you allow me to give, through the medium of your paper, the particulars. As several ladies were interested in the S,how, I think it unfair and impolitic to omit them. The Show of flowers were particular; and some, even in England, would have been no disgrace to the fair hands that cultivated them. First, then, and most beautiful, were those shown by Mrs. J. B. Locke, to which was justly awarded the first prize ; second, to Mrs. Henry Brown-a pretty bouquet: third, were those shown by Mrs. Guerrier-a very handsome basket of flowers ; fourth, Miss Turner's, culled from Mrs. Bunbury's garden, were not shown to advan- tage, being merely thrown together into a box. ^There were ot...

Nicol Bay. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

Nicol Bay. The cutter Mystery arrived from the DeGrey and Tien Tsin Harbour on Wednesdey the 16th inst, and brings the very welcome and satisfac- tory intelligence that everything is going on well at both places, the stock in good condition, and the natives quiet and friendly. By the kindness of Mr. Padbury the Perth Gazette was last week enabled to make the following extracts from Mr. C. Nairn's letter to him, dated in No- vember for the DeGrey :-" I can at a moment's notice find feed and water for 20,000 sheep within a radius of 20 miles from my present camp, at the driest season of the year, which I believe to be this month ; this is not boasting. The sheep have improved wonderfully, as their weight will shew you. March or April will do for landing stock at Port Headland; sheep should be shorn before they are put on board ship ; our sheep do first rate at present, and we have had no scab for a long time ; the bullocks and horses are also in first rate order.

Christmas Masquerading ONE HUNDRED YEARS AGO. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

C&ratwas p»8flttjer»bitt0 ONE HUNDRED YEABS AGO. DuBiNG the latter part of the reign of Louis XV. of France, masquerades were in high esti- mation, and public ones were often given, at immense cost, on court days and other occa- sions of rejoicing. To these latter persons of all ranks, who could afford to purchase the ticket, were admissible; and accordingly re contres frequently took place at them, and exhibitions, almost as curious in the way of disguise, as in the assumption of character, On one occasion, a niece of the Duke of Nemours, Madame La Valiere, a woman of high rank and fashion, being accidentally separated from her party upon a very crowded staircase, was opportunely assisted by a stranger of remarkable activity and address. He was masked and cloaked to the teeth, but he possessed a handsome figure.and a gentlemanly bealing; and, after extricating the lady by main strength from a situation of considerable difaculty, he somewhat surprised her by ad- dressing her...

A schoolboy at home for the holidays is the only individual who has any prac- tical knowledge on the subject. It is, no doubt, a merry time for the young; or at least it used to be so ages ago, when boys were boys, and not young Sages, like the present marvels of the species in Europe. Christmas-time is the Youth of the Christian Year, the season, therefore, of Hope ; that period of early prime when joys and pleasures are truly sweet to the uncorrupted taste, the fresh palate of the Young. The jaded heart of middle-life looks down with languid scorn upon the pure joys of early years ; when the dew-drops of Morning, glittering on every spray, are not clearer than the crystal spirit of Youth, rejoicing in the dawn of Life and Hope. A " Merrie Christmas," then, to our Boys and Girls ! To those, who, as yet, have no cares, no anxieties, fears, or ...

CHRISTMAS EVE, OR MR. WOBBLES AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

CHRISTMAS EVE, OB 1 ME. WOBBLES AT HOME. LET US call on the Port Admiral. Let us see bim on a Christmas Eve. In the early stage of our acquaintance with individuals, we naturally form our estimate of their character from what we see in occasional glimpses, or gather from the observation of others. Our first ideas are often flashes of Truth, from some Divine source of which we know little or nothing-like pictures reflected from Nature by a momentary gleam of sunlight caught by Art. But our first ideas are soon dimmed by others of a denser character, until more intimate acquaintance with the object satisfies us that our first impressions were nearer the truth than the second. It is probable that Mr. Wobbles may not yet be fully estimated as he deserves to be. But never mind ; there is a good time coming ; and old Wobbles is emphatically a good man, however rough his exterior, and even though he may not come up to the rules which different sects lay down as their own peculiar measure o...

Perhaps in a storm of sleet and snow. The country is bare and leafless, but the coal-fires blaze cheerfully in every home. A "merry Christmas!" is the greeting of every tongue ; and everybody feels disposed to be merry, although English folk never know how to become so. It is a holiday tp the hard-worked, -and a few hours' unwonted idleness are alone a sense of joy. Holly-boughs are to be seen in most windows, and a few sprays, with clustering berries, ornament the break- fast-table. The frosty air hardens on the window-panes; distant sounds ring through the clear atmosphere ; elderly people look cheerful under the hope that younger ones, at least, are gladsome and merry ; and children with red cheeks and noses, and sparkling eyes, run in and out, announcing to every one the happy fact that the pond will nearly bear, and t...

He sought him out; he even heard the last words of the Count. The Baron angrily seized his hand and led him aside. "You have openly af- fronted my daughter. Wretch! have we deserved it at your hands? Give me satisfaction this moment, or at the earliest dawn of morning." Both thereupon left the saloon. Fresh couples now arranged themselves, in order, by the dance, to restore the lost tranquillity. Meanwhile, the Baron and the Viscount retired to a solitary lighted apartment. The Count followed close upon their steps. He brought two swords, and offered one of them to the Viscount ; saying at the same time, to the Baron, " Allow me, Sir Baron, to avenge the honour of the divine Baroness and my own against this good for-nought." The Viscount exclaimed, wit...
