Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

Correspondence To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times SIR, - I beg to correct a very grave error in the letter of your correspondent "One of the   Committee of the Busselton Mechanics' Insti- tute." He speaks of "the funds being in a flourishing condition." I only wish they were so. Their condition is as follows : Liabilities at least £20 0 0 Balance in hand. £ 0 17 5 Overdue subscriptions. £39 15 0 or an average of one year's subscription from 38 members. I am the more anxious to correct this mistake as I fear that the members, deluded by the idea of funds in a "flourishing condition," may   fancy that they sufficiently support the Insti- tute by keeping their names, or permitting them to be, on the List, and using or losing the books of the Library, and accordingly delay payment of their subscriptions. I can only report an increase of one member, and three outdoor subscriptions since March, 1866. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, Henry W...

To the editor of the Perth Gazette % W. A. Times. SIE,-The enclosed extract from a home let- ter might be interesting to many in this colony : " I have a piece of good news for you : we "are again going to consider the subject of " forming a Sanitarium, for Invalids of the In " diau army, in Western Australia. The excel " lency of your climate is beyond any question." The information is reliable, as the letter was received from a member of the Indian Council, who went on to say, that a Special Committee was about to be called. The fact of recurring to the same colony after once having let the plan drop, and the co-temporary letter to Colonel Bruce, should give us great hope of the estab- lishments being formed. louis siuueicjj, Bunbury, W. A., Jan. 23,1867.

INCENDIARY FIRE AT NORTHAM. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

INCENDIARY FIRE AT NORTHAM. T'a t.liP "TCrîifcnr nf f,h« Vrrfh. fíneptíe. Ar W. A Times. y SIR,-On Monday night, the 21st instant, a stack of wheat belonging to a poor man named Conners, and the produce of his year's labour, was maliciously destroyed by an incendiary, who fired it in two or three different places to ensure its complete destruction. Information was given to the Police, who came and looked on the ashes of the wheat and returned to Newcastle. Now the occupiers of land in this vicinity feel very uneasy, knowing that any night the same diabolical act may be perpetrated on them- selves; surely every right-minded person would desire that a strict aird searching enquiry should take place, and that at least efforts should be made to seek out the wretch who, to gratify his fiendish spite, with deliberate malice de- prives a hard-working and unoffending man of the bread that would keep him and his family from want and privation: can it be that the man being poor and obscure th...

STEAM COMMUNICATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

STEAM COMMUNICATION. Probably no more efficient agent .could be pointed out for promoting the pro- gress of this colony, than the establishment of a line of steam communication with Adelaide, Melbourne, and India, or Singa- pore, and also one for the coasting trade. We, perhaps, are powerless to do more in the matter than to indicate to others, how far such lines would pay, and we think we shall not make out a very in- different prospect to commence with. The question has been put to us would not a line of steamers running between Melbourne and Singapore, touch- ing at Adelaide, and Fremantle, pay ? ' It was a new suggestion to us, and per haps will be to others, but nevertheless one we think well worthy the serious consideration of the owners of steamers at Melbourne, where we understand there are now several barely paying their ex- penses. That a considerable support to such a line could be obtained from this colony is undeniable and, perhaps, so far as freight is concerned, we co...

Hollowat's Ointment and Pills.-The best way.-To gain an end there are often many ways, but there is always a best way. This statement applies with wonderful force to Holloway's remedies, which overcome ill-health by driving noxious matter fiom the fíame, by repairing broken and injuied structures, and by establishing regularity of action. This is the ^ only safe and feasible method of combating «diseases and securing sound health. With pure blood, good digestion, strong nerves, and perfect functional older most maladies may be van- quished, and strength surely ie-estdblished. The balsamic and healing qualities of Holloway'» Ointment render it invaluable in the nursery for healing cuts, scratches, and sores, for allying inflammations, i educing swellings, and cleans- ing unhealthy skins.

A ROTHSCHILD'S HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

A KOTHSCHILD'S HOME. The Paris correspondent of the Morn- ing Star has apparently been a guest at Baron James de Rothschild's princely chateau at Ferneres, and he thus describes what he saw there:-"You enter by a flight of marble steps a vestibule, which opens on one of the most spacious halls in Europe, furnished, however, as a re- ception-room, and lighted from the roof, which is of muffled glass, from behind which at night a system of gas illuminates the vast space somewhat as has been so successfully carried out at the Châtelet. A gallery runs round the upper part of the hall, on which suites of party rooms open, while on the ground floor the recep- tion and family apartments open on the hall. Purple velvet portiers have an ad- mirable effect at each end of the splendid salle, which has been constructed on the most perfect acoustic principles, the result of which is, that the effect of music exe- cuted here is marvellous. Ordinary pa- per hangings are banished, and each room is ...

CLAP-TRAP MORALITY. [From the Saturday Review.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

CLAP.TRAP MORALITY. [From the Saturday Review.] Works of fiction and of poetry are the safety valve» through which a vast volume of morbid, passion and sentiment discharges itself, which can find no satisfactory outlet in real life. A man who has plenty of modes of indulging his ideas, or even his moody or visionary fancies, does not take refuge in composing novels. He has work to do in other ways ; and when this is done, he has no store of unsatisfied energy left unem- ployed to ferment within in his own bosom. Romaneo and poetry are a field occupied chiefly by those whose opportunities of action are not proportioned to the feverish activity of their inner selves ; and what they cannot perform in print, by the medium of fabulous heroes and im- possible or impossible heroines. And there ia another important fact that ought not to be for- gotten. The imagination of authors is far more impressible and susceptible than the temper and disposition of society, which is governed by fixed h...

THE CHANGES IN EUROPE. [From the Brisbane Courier.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

THE CHANGES IN ETJEOPE. [From the Brisbane Courier.'] After a war like the last it is natural that the changes in the international structure of Europe since 1815 should be worth taking note of.

LORD DERBY AT THE GUILD. HALL BANQUET. (Times Nov. 10.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

LOBB DEEBY AT THE GUILD HALL BANQUET. (Times Nov. 10.) Lord Derby last night made one of hid best after-dinner speeches to the New Lord Mayor and his guests at the (Guild- hall. It is only at long intervals that a Conservative chief has the privilege of responding to the toast of " Her Majesty's Ministers^' and Lord Derby, though three times Prime Minister, has only for the third time, and at intervals of years, spoken in the character of one to whom the guardianship of the country ia com- mitted. The late Lord Palmerston, in! office in his youth, in mature manhood, and in old age, bore his responsibilities lightly. To speak as a Minister at a pub- lic banquet was as natural to him as to talk at his own dinner-table ; the proper phrases came unbidden to his lips; he was open or reserved as the case required as if by instinct, and charmed an as- sembly by his frankness without uttering, a word that he did not wish to say. Lord Derby has many of the same qualities, but the exhibition ...

PETROLEUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 February 1867

PETROLEUM. The following letters from Mr. De Salis, are well worthy the attention of persons who have opportunities of examining localities likely to contain kerosene or petroleum. While Mr. De Salis was resident here some years ago, he made himself well acquainted with our coal measures, and his geological acquirements render his opinions and suggestions of more than ordinary value. To W. Keene, Esq., Inspectob of Coal Mines, Newcastle, N.S.W. Deas Sib,-I duly received your letter of 19th October last, giving some interesting in- formation regarding the bituminous deposits as yet discovered in the colony, and advising that you had forwarded to me per P. O. Company a small package of various petroleum shales, to be delivered to Sir Roderick Murchison. This package duly came to hand, and I at once took it to the Practical Museum of Geology in Jermyn-street, where it was placed by Sir Roderick in the hands of Dr. Peicy, the analy- sing chemist of the establishment, to be by him examin...

A TALE OF THE SEA. rïFrom the Sacramento Union.'] The following is a correspondent's account of the privations the crew of the ship " Hornet " endured after she was burnt, in north latitude 2 degrees 20 minutes, west longitude 112 degrees 8 minutes, about 1,000 miles due south from Cape St. Lucas, Lower California, and 2,500 miles east of Hawaii. After describing the loss of the vessel, he says :-" I have said that in the few minutes' time allowed him Cap- tain Mitchell was only able to seize upon the few articles of food and other necessaries that happened to lie about the cabin. Here is the list:-Four hams, seven pieces of salt pork (each piece weighed about four pounds), one box of raisins, 100 lbs. of bread (about one barrel), 12 2 lb. cans of oysters, clams and assorted meats; six buckets of raw potatoes 4which rotted so fast they got hut little benefit from them), a keg with 4 lbs. of butter in it, 12 gallons of water, in a 40 gallon tierce, or * scuttle bat,' four one-gallon ...

Most welcome is the intelligence con- tained in the letter of our correspondent " P," given in another column, that the subject of establishing a Sanitarium in this colony for the invalids of the British troops serving in India, is to be recon- sidered; the fact that this re-consider- ation originates with the Council of India itself, is proof that the necessity for forming such an establishment somewhere out of India is pressing, and that no other colony than this is thought of. We have so often had our hopes on this subject thrown down, that we can scarcely now bring ourselves to believe that it is pos- sible such an important piece of good for- tune can befall us. But in this instance the re-opening of the question arises from no prompting on the part of warm parti zans of this colony in England, but from the Gove...

We believe that the opinion is now general that, under the present Eegulations, while the latter object is attained it is so at the ex- pense of the former. Although the question how to reconcile the two has been lately much discussed in private, no definite proposition has yet been laid before the public.

MAJOR WÀEBUKTON'S EXPLO 1 I? A nPWYNT (Adelaide Observer.') Thiáirip; was a complete failure as re- gards the northwest country ; for owing to long-continued droughts that country was shut against all explorers. But the Major seems to have exerted himself use- fully in the direction of Lake Eyre. Our readers will find that on the latest maps the country to the east of that lake is marked with the words " Probable con- nection of Lake Eyre with the waters east- ward." This brief memorandum repre- sents all that was known on the subject. But now Major Warburton announces that there is no longer any doubt as to the lake communicating with the waters eastward. He says :-" I spared no labor that could help me to avoid mis- takes ; and after a careful consideration of au the points that came under my ob- servation, I think the Barcoo may now be mapped with approximate (I speak of my own work) accuracy from its source in Queensland to its mouth in Lake Eyre."

Corr espité eure. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times.

I do not consider it bad taste to find - fault with one's own work, if one discovers that an error has been committed. It is far more manly to own it than to con- trive to conceal such error. The clause respect- ing the timber licenses accidentally (?) left out, was not by any means what the Secretary states it to have been, nor do I at all agree with the opinion he expresses regarding the probable effect if such an alteration were made. That private feeling has any thing whatever to do with the controversy raised in respect to the proceedings of our Society> I most distinctly deny. It is on public grounds only that I have stated my opinion, and I am not far wrong if I assert that the Secretary himself fully agreed with the other members, that ...

To the "Editor of the Perth Gazette SçW. A. Times. SIR.-It has long been a matter of much surprise, not to myself alone but to many living in Newcastle, that the principal Government School of this district instead of being where most required-in the town-should be situated at least a mile and a half distant from it, and this is the more difficult to understand since there is in Newcastle a good and suitable Government building, which formerly was actually used for the purpose of the school. Were the want of such a building the cause, there would be some little show of reason for it ; but in the absence of that I am at a loss to conceive what other reason there can be of suf- ficient weight for the placing of the school where it is ; true, that the Government School during the time it was in Newcastle was not a success, the cause of which may be easily ex- plained; but under the present teacher the contrary is the case, and the Government School here now is as well conducted and att...
