THE FORTUNE COPPER MINING COMPANY (LIMITED), FREMANTLE, W. A. FORTUNE COPPER MINE, Nov. 29, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 December 1864

THE FORTUNE COPPER MINING COMPATÎT (LIMITED), FEE MANTLE, W. A. FORTUNE COPPER MINE, Nov. 29,1864. ±yuv. ÍIV, . SIR,-I beg to forward you my Monthly Report of this Mine : William Frederick Engine Shaft.-This shaft is sunk five fathoms below the 40 fathom level, sinking by 6 men ; at fhis point we have intersected a lode of yellow copper ore 20 inches wide, solid, worth about .£40 per fathom, the ground is very favorable for sinking, and if continues, I expect to be at the 50 fathom by the end of January, 1865. The country granite is interlaced with veins of copper ore intercepting the lode at an angle of 25deg. The appearance of country and lode at this point looks well for a large deposit of copper ore. 40 S. E. Lode is driving by two men, lode l8 inches wide, spotted throughout with lead ; we have not reached the point where I expected the continuation of the large run of lead ore from the 30-fathom level. Stopes No. 1 in the back of the 40 fathom level S.W. of shaft is working by...

EXPLORATION IN AUSTRALIA. (Evening Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 December 1864

EXPLORATION IN AUSTRALIA. (Evening Mail.) As it is a national belief that the un- settled territory of Australia is still a pos- session of the British Empire, we cannot but take an interest in the successive ex- ploring expeditions by which the country is being raised from the condition of a terra incognita. The reproach the enormous blank in our maps has long been to our enterprise is being taken away, and something of the same spirit of discovery that has penetrated Africa from so many different points is at last attempting to lift the veil of mystery that has so long hung over the vast interior region of Australia. The Imperial G-o vernment has done less to promote these attempts than could have been wished. Nearly all the work has been done by the Australian colonies themselves. By some extraordinaiy course of reasoning, diffi- cult to account for in what is supposed to be the most practical of nations, we gave nearly all our support of exploring enter- prise to the discovery o...

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. (Evening Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 December 1864

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. (Evening Mail.) It is fortunate for Mr. Lincoln that is to be or not to be cannot remain a ques- tion long. The lucky gale of military success that lifted him off the shoal on which he was grounded some weeks since has varied several points, and for the moment cannot be called favourable. Mr. Stanton has ominously little to re- port from Petersburg, and the news ar- riving from other quarters is not so as- suring as the Cabinet at this junction could wish it. Some of the reports de- note that more than one Federal Com- mander sees there are difficulties around him. Sheerman is obliged to admit that the Confederates under General Hood are in his rear and have destroyed seven miles of the railroad to Chattanooga, on which the Federal forces depended for their supplies. But having "plenty of "provisions at Atlanta, he feels secure so " far as his main army is concerned." If he can feel secure under such circum- stances, he is an officer of great equa- nimity....

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 December 1864

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The arrivals and departures in the shipping have been unusually numerous since the date of my last ; in fact I do not recollect to have seen our harbor wear so mercantile and gay an appearance since it ceased to be the rendezvous of the American whalers ; we have now quite a fleet of vessels lying at anchor, the principal part of which are fine large crafts. In arrivals we have had, on the 15th the Favorite from the Bay, after a stormy passage of 7 days ; the Hastings from London, on the 17th with emi- grants and general cargo ; 18th, Daylight, from Champion Bay, 8 days out ; the Sea Ripple on the 19th, from the Vasse; and on the 20th, the schooner Stanley from Melbourne. The depar- tures are not so numerous, only including the Nile for Roebuck Bay on the 15th, and the Sea Ripple for Mauritius on the 21st. These numerous arrivals and departures have caused a little stir in our town; the wool is coming down fast, and the two ships for Lon- don...

[A Domestic Scene-SNABL and Ms better half at Tea.] " Well Jane," says Snarl, stirring his tea, "though you express some sympathy for our Governor, yet you know it's the lot of all great men, and particularly of Statesmen, to get well abused." "Butmy dear Snarl the Governor's nota Statesman; he's merely the Agent of our Beloved Queen, and he's a very difficult part to perform-if he does his best, then why com- plain ?" " Of course he's not a Statesman, that's true enough-if he were perhaps we'd have less to complain of-but I maintain that he does not even do what is in his power to promote the well-being of the colony and those who live in it." "Well my dear can't you leave off bothering yourself with these nasty disagreeable ques- tions-why can't you ?"

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 December 1864

-w To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIR,-Will you allow me, as a ratepayer of the City of Perth, to make a few remarks in your widely circulated Journal relative to the City Council, with a view of following out the old proverb-" Let every beast bear its own burthen "-one that has been applied very fre- quently in the history of the world, and just now its aptness with regard to the City Council is remarkably strong. Has the Perth City Council done its duty during the year faithfully and impartially ? is a question I would rather put than answer. I think it was Adam Smith who remarked that people who manage their own business, care about their own business ; but that people who manage the business of of others are not so solicitous as to the fruits which are to go to others ; I will therefore give the Perth City Council the credit of acting upon Adam Smith s doctrine ; but although a man may have no direct interest in a scheme or in a public business which he may b...

&axxt&$arùttVLM. THE NEW COUNTRY. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sf W. A. Times. SIR,-At the present time when our pros- pects are brightening and we seem to be on the eve of achieving wealth by means of our north- ern territory, an excuse is scarcely necessary .j for an endeavour to direct public attention to important matters in connection with the settle- ment of that territory. Western Australia has existed so long in the hope of something " turn- ing up " to fill its coilers, has so often been on the point of obtaining a position among the wealthy Australian group, and so often through want of energy, through official mismanage- ment, or from the physical impractibilities of the country, has been compelled to relinquish the hopes of success, that one cannot but feel that the present crisis is an important one, and that every effort should be used to turn the vast expanse of North-West Australia to our per- manent advantage. The Government of the Colony have ...

Since the departure of the November mails, almost the only topic which has engaged public attention, has been the bright prospect of future welfare to the Colony through the settlement of the North-West Coast, and great anxiety has prevailed lest these hopeful expectations should be marred by the bad management or possible inaction of the Government. Although many of our own stockowners, were making preparations for forming establishments in the new country, our principal hopes for its full occupation and the consequent benefit of large increase of colonial trade, were formed upon the expectation that it would be largely re- sorted to from the Eastern Colonies, of the prospect of which most favorable re- ports had been received. The arrival of the last mail from the eastward confirmed those hopes, giving...

It is possible that account was colored more or less by party feeling, but the unpreju- diced statements of one of the passengers entirely unconnected with either Mr. Fin- niss or his refractory subordinates, leave but little doubt that, while that gentle- man did not receive that support they should have given him, he had undoubt- edly manifested an entire unfitnesa for the duties his position required of him-in fact, that one of the ablest office men in South Australia, was totally unfit to encounter the difficulties to be met with and conquered, in founding a new settlement* upon an almost unknown country.- o< 'Z% A. c r> -^ " ? >**; 1 i» .Omewhat curious that we should of thefail...

The tumult and ex- citement that every day brings forth, bids fair to exhaust the strength and the patience of under Secretaries and Aides de-camp, and even mere spectators are ia some danger of becoming wearied by a surfeit of magnificent displays. So that we are all glad that to-morrow is a quiet day, for next week there is a great deal to be got through. The whole of this morning has been occupied by the levee and private durbar held by the Governor General. Shortly after ten o'clock, His Excellency entered the Durbar tent erected in the garden of Government House, the Viceroy retired into his private tent, while t...
