FARMERS' FIRE INSURANCE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 February 1867

FARMERS' FIRE INSURANCE, (From the Australasian.) a] Daring the past three or four weeks accounts of disastrous fires have been received from all parts of the colonies, some having been the re- sult of accidental causes, and some the work of incendiaries. The waste and destruction of property cannot but be deplored ; and the more we think upon this subject, the more we feel called upon to urge those men of capital, po- sition, and knowledge of insurance business to bring into active life two or more insurance companies, through whose agency the agricultu- rist would, for a small amount, be able to secure the result of his year's labour, and free himself from a great.deal of anxiety. In England, up- wards of seventy million pounds worth of agri- cultural property is'insured among the many offices established for that purpose ; and it must be remembered that in England there are no bush-fires, no rascally swagsmen, who look upon firing your crops and fences as a just return for your r...

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 February 1867

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) I had hoped that the formation of our Town Trust was thoroughly approved of since it has gone on favorably from that date, though perhaps not exactly to everyone's liking; but the murmurs I hear occasionally proves that either the formation or working of the Trust must be faulty or the ideas of the dissentients a little out of order. The fir3t grievance was the election of tenants for committee men to the exclusion of their landlords, which certainly was bad taste, for a tenant or servant can never have that interest in a town that a pro- prietor or master has : but this is the weak side of the Ordinance. Now if the Trust being hastily formed created this evil it need not exist longer than a year, and one would think the annoyance it gave alone, would rouse up a mighty host of proprietors to alter it; but .no, and so the thing went on. It does seem absurd to complain when we have the power to alter it. No, not if all the tenants choose to tur...

FREEMASONRY. [From Chambers's Journal.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 February 1867

FREEMASONRY. [From' Chambers's Journal.] The popular notion with respect to the xnason'c brotherhood is somewhat vague and uncertain. It is principally asso- ciated with curious ceremonies, terrible oaths and ordeals, a very close acquaint- ance with a red-hot poker and an in- candescent gridiron, lamb-skin aprons like a toll-collector's bag, mysterious prefixes and affixes to the members' names, aud frightful punibhments to intruders, who are kept off by a dreadful officer called the Tyler. It is generally supposd that freemasous are a band of brothers, fond of social intercourse, sir- loins, and champagne ; and that they ai e a set of jolly good-fellows, is a fact which nobody can deny. ÎTow, a recent papal allocution having excited public attention to the masonic body, we take this opportunity of giving our readers a little information concern- ing that secret institution. The freemasons boast that their fra- ternity is one of the oldest institutions in existence, and has existed...

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. From Perth Gazette, February 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 February 1867

EVENTS OF THE MONTH. From Perth Gazette, February 1. MR. THOMAS LOCKYER, of Northam, had the misfortune last week to have his dwelling house, and all his farming premises destroyed by fire, as well as a large quantity of wheat. The fire originated from the carelessness of a man, employed as a plaisterer, who took a lighted piece of wood outside the house and commenced chopping it ; some of the sparks lighted upon the thatched roof which was quickly in a blaze ; so rapid was the progress of the fire that it was impossible to save the furniture or any contents of the building. THREE young persona met their deaths at the Vasse by drowning on the 23rd instant. Two young men, sons of Mr. Smith, and two young girls, daughters of Mr. Seymour, were proceeding from the .Castle Rock to Busselton, when the boat was caught in a whirlwind and swamped and the three youngest of the party drowned, the eldest saving himself by swimming to the beach a quarter of a mile distant. A curious circumstance...

WILLIAM THOMPSON—THE MAORI CHIEF. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 22 February 1867

WILLIAM THOMPSON-THE MAOEI CHIEF. ^Australasian. Y The death of William Thompson has removed the principal actor in those long, protracted and troublous scenes of New Zealand history, which scarcely yet ap- pear to have finally terminated. As a man, Thompson would have been re- markable in any age and in any clime,, through his concentrated vigour of pur- pose. He has been forced on the notice of Englishmen by the fact that he and^ his cause have occasioned the waste of torrents of British blood and millions or Imperial and colonial treasure. He des- serves consideration, however, rather as the chief who boldly attempted to bridge over the chasm between the old and the new; who endeavored, and endeavored with judgment, to bind together, civilise, and place on a footing of equality with the white man the noble bus moribund. Maori people. Wiremu Tamihana Tarapipipi (such is Thompson's Maori appellation) was well qualified by birth for the high position he took in the land. As a chief,...

CONTINENTAL MATTERS. [From the News of the World.] COUNT BISMARK'S LABOURS AND ANXIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

CONTINENTAL MATTERS. [From the News of the World."] -? COUNT BISMARK'S LABOUES AND ANXIETIES. A Berlin letter says :-Strange rumors continue to circulate respecting the health of Count Bismark. He is really still far from well, and his physicians urge him to give up all business for a time and go to Italy. This, however, he is quite determined not to do ; the creation of the North German Bund and the Convo- cation of the German Parliament are tasks he will allow no man to perform but himself. On the day he returned to Berlin his friends pressed him to listen to the advice of his doctors, but he answered that " he would do his work, even if it should cost him his -life." He is naturally very strong, and bears every kind of physical hardship easily. But during the past four years he has gone through an amount of mental tension which would tell on the most powerful organisation. While on the one hand he had to prepare everything for the war, which was his great aim, he had on the other...

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

?ßxxt$$o\uevttt. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-Through the medium of your Journal I learn that certain settlers are about sending in a Petition to the Governor, praying for the extension of time before the Scab Act is put in force. The Settlers in this district knew it would be of no use protesting against the Bill, as they have better pluck than to plaster the Governor with champagne and luncheons, which they did at Champion Bay ; why bribe the Governor for any measure ? I believe we have nearly all dipped in thia^V district. I don't mean in brandy, but in tobacco' and sulphur to meet the Act which is to be put in force on the 1st of July, I for one bought tobacco and sulphur amounting to ¿830, and dipped nearly 3,0U0 sheep, and if the time of the Act is extended look at my position. I and others of course will be sufferers, losing you may say the expense of medicine and the ex- penses of dipping, which in my case took 7 hands. I want no half measures; tho...

FLAX-GKOWING IN AUSTRALIA. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

FLAX-GKOWING IN AUSTEALIA. [From the Australasian.'] It seems, in the generality of cases, to be about as difficult in Australia to transplant new ideas about plants as to transplant new plants themselves. There are, of course, exceptions. It is to be feared that the present success of the harvest may send the farmers back into the old track of growing nothing but wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, and the like, in-forgetfulness of the fact that all these, partly from exhaustion of soil with the neglect of proper manuring and a regular rotation, partly from accidents blight, which no one can thoroughly guard against, and partly from the con- stant chance of being undersold by an overplus in the Californian or Chilian markets, are generally a risk. Not, of course, that they will ever cease to be the staple growth. Every country, whenever it can, should try to raise its own bread stuffs within itself. But it will not do with us to make the cereals the sheet anchor. A multiplicity of produ...

Holloway's Ointment and Pills. - Dangerous Diseases.-How many life-long maladies spring from neglecting trifling symptoms ! The pim pie, readily curable in the nursery, becomes, through carelessness, the irremediable torment of after life. With a knowledge of the curative powers of Holloway's Ointment and Pills those who fail to use them for extirpating the first seeds of hereditary ailments will have to bear the punishment resulting from their folly. Hollo way's remedies will remove eruptions of the skin, scorbutic diseases, and scrofula, and heal every description of ulcer, sore, wound or abra- sion.

THE BATTLE OF SADOWA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

01 >d THE BATTLE OF SADOWA. A correspondent of the Daily News gives the following interesting account of a recent visit to the battle-field of Sadowa, or Königgratz : Having just returned from a visit to König- gratz, and two other Bohemian battle-fields, I have thought it possible that the impressions produced by these places while still stamped with marks of the recent conflicts, but stilly ra- pidly setting down to their normal condition,, might not prove uninteresting to a portion of your readers. I left Vienna on the evening of the 25th September, arrived at the Königgrate station after a twelve hours' journey by rail, and spent the whole of the 26th and 28th in viewing the scene of the engagement which took place on the 3rd July. Before quitting the capital I had provided myselt with two cheap German maps; the larger of these showed with tolerable correctness the features of the ground, but did not always express truly their relative height, and the roads and houses had not...

SCIENTIFIC TOYS. [From the Lancet.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

SCIENTIFIC TOYS. [From the Lancet.~\ It is evident that the sports of children no longer satisfy the child. The modern five-year old young person is so far ahead of the child who completed his first lustrum any time in the last century, that he turns with contempt from the simple toys of a generation to whom science was unknown. This change may be traced to various causes, and possibly one of the most influential is attributable to that charm- ing little work on the science of sport which is now known to have been written by the late Dr. Paris when he was President of the Col- lege of Physicians. Science in earnest has. since he wrote, made a profitable business by supplying philosophy in sport. Any scien- tific recluse wishing to ascertain the progress of society in the direction to which his own studies tend, may possibly gain information from the lectures of the Bo3'al Institution, but is just as likely to obtain what he wants b3' making a tour of the toy-shops. If the word " sci...

THE WEATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

THE WEATHER. An unusually protracted and heavy fall of rain, for the time of year, commenced at day- break on Friday morning and lasted until near mid-day on Saturday. During that time rather more than one inch and a half fell; such a rainfall in February has not, we believe, before occurred within the knowledge of the settlers. The effects, will we fear be anything but beneficial to fhe wine and raisin crops, in- deed we hear of several instances in which the latter have been completely spoiled. So far a3 we have heard the rainfall was general over the older settled districts, and was very welcome in most parts, the country generally shewing the effects of want of moisture in a greater degree even than last year; the supply of this want will be a benefit but, on the other hand, much of the old dry feed on the runs will have been damaged, and the new grass springing up will scarcely stand the effects of the hot sun which we must expect to prevail during-March. The gum harvest now we...

PROSPECTS OF TEA CULTIVATION IN VICTORIA. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

PROSPECTS OF TEA CULTIVATION IN VICTORIA. (From the Australasian.) In, the consideration of this subject the ollowing considerations naturally suggest jhemselves : Will the plant grow in Victoria ? Will it arrive in Victoria at the same -' "perfection that it is seen to do in China, * Japan, Java, India, or Brazil ? Is the quality of the leaf liable to be depreciated by change of locality ? Have we many persons resident among us skilled in the management of planta- tions and the manufacture of tea ? Can its cultivation be profitably pur- sued in this colony with the employment of local labor at the present rates ? Can we successfully compete with the foreign imported article ? 'Would a Victorian tea plantation be a safe and profitable investment for money ? As a number of tea plants have already . tabeen successfully raised in the vicinity of Melbourne, the questiou of the desirabil- ity of pursuing its cultivation will certain- ly not be allowed to rest ; and I propose to answer th...

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

GUILDFORD. (From our own Correspondent.) Last week our vintage commenced, but the unexpected fall of rain from 2 o'clock on Friday morning to Saturday night sadly interfered with it as also with the fruit drying ; the latter being considerably damaged, and in some cases totally spoilt. But however unwelcome it was to this portion of the community, in other quar- ters it must have been very acceptable, and surely no weather could be lovelier than the two or three days we had after it. For the benefit of those who have small quantities of choice grapes, I will give all the information I possess to enable them to turn one sort at least to good account. There was one good sweet wine at our Show, which took the first prize, and was subsequently pi-o nounced by a Wine Merchant to be worth 30s. per dozen; this wine was made from the White Constantia ; thoroughly ripe the grapes were crushed by a mill in prefer- ence to that other method so universal but, nevertheless, disgusting, the must ...
