MORNING VISITS. [From London Society.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

MORNING VISITS. [From London Society.~\ Miss Berry calls morning visits the " abomi- nation of desolation. Did any one ever an- nonce an intention of devoting a day to them in any tone of satisfaction ? Was it not, on the contrary, moaned over, bewailed detested ? and is it within the range of possibility that such intercourse can lead to any agreeable result ? You order the carriage on some cheerless December day, and, after perhaps a seven miles' drive through a bleak or hilly country, you ar- rive cold, miserable, and somewhat peevish, at your friend's door. You listen eagerly for the servant's reply as to whether Mrs. A- is at home. " Yes, will you walk in ? " " Of course she is at home," 3'ou mutter indignantly ; " she would not be such a fool as to go out on a day like this," and you glance up at the leaden sky, from which a few heavy flakes of snow are slowly descending. Would, you think, that you could emulate that self-possessed young gentle- man, who, when tola that his un...

Fremantle Local Court. MONDAY, 25TH FEB. 1867. (Before Chas. Symmons, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 March 1867

Fremantle Loeal Court. MONDAY, 25TH FEB. 1867. (Before Chas. Symmons, Esq. Among the cases exciting considerable interest was one in which a sawyer named Atwell sued Mr. H. M. Lefroy for £14¡ 8s., the price of 36 loads of slabs at 8s. per load. The plaintiff, in evidence, swore he knew nothing about a wine contract. Mr. Loftie, on the part of the defend- ant, admitted the delivery to his cart of the slabs in question, but resisted the action on the grounds that the agreement between the parties was that the plaintiff should be paid for the slabs at the rate of 2 bottles of colonial wine per load, and which had (on the completion of the cart- ing of the slabs) been tendered and re- fused. It appeared by the evidence adduced ou the defendant's part, that he had re- ceived a verbal message (through one of his men) from a gang of sawyers, of whom the plaintiff was one, that the defendant might have as many slabs as he wished to take for " a little wine" ; the defendant then, by his serv...

WHO? WHAT? AND WHEREFORE? OR, A FEW FACTS FOE THE INVALID. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

WHO? WHAT? AND WHEREFORE? OB, A FEW FACTS FOE THE'INVALID. Have our readers ever heard of Professor HOLLOWAY ? Undoubtedly they have, just as they have heard of HUMBOLDT, ARAGO, OERSTED, SILLIMAN, AGASSIZ, and other notable men of' learning. But have they never asked them- selves who and what he is ? If they have no definite information on that matter we will proceed to enlighten them. The Professor is a native of that country which produced Harvey, Hunter, Abernethy, and other illuminati of medical science. So much for the WHO ; and now for the WHAT. He is to other physicans what CLAY, WEBSTER and CALHOUN were to statesmen, what WASHINGTON-revered name ! was to patriots and generals,-what SHAKES PERE was to dramatists, and IRVING and CHALMERS was^to preachers,-viz : the greatest ol lus age and profession. His reputation has penetrated the encrustations of prejudice, sur- mounted the barriers of malice, and he avowedly stands alone, the MEDICAL COLOSSUS of the world. So much for the...

AN IRISHMAN'S DEFENCE OF ENGLAND! [From the Sydney Morning Herald.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

AN IRISHMAN'S DEFENCE OF ENGLAND ! [From the Sydney Morning Herald."] The following is part of the brilliant speech of Mr. Justice Keogh, at the meeting of the College Historical Society, on Thursday. Such a truly admirable defence of England, delivered on the spur of the moment in reply to an attack, deseives to be remembered among the happiest efforts of our best orators. After some intro- ductory remarks, Judge Keogh said :-" I will not even in this assemblage, where many may differ fiom me iu opinion, stand silent and hear the great and glorious empire to which our destinies are inseparably attached-(great applause)-I will not hear that gi eat country,, which presents the greatest career to the young men of this island that any country ever yet presented since the beginning of the world, spoken of in a detracting spirit.

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

Caixesp nimia. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-I have read carefully your extracts from various writings upon the disease called " Scab," and have arrived at the sa~ne conclu- sion as the Chief Inspector in Sydney, viz : That it is not from any want of sufficient know- ledge upon the subject that we do not get rid of the disease, but because sheep-owners will not be persuaded to concentrate that labor and expense into a few weeks, which they now ex- tend over the whole year. Up to the present time scientific men have not gone beyond experienced shepherds in their discoveries. Shepherds will tell you that dirt and poverty encourage disease, so do the scientific men; shepherds do not believe that the insect causes the disease, scientific men are doubtful. Upon the quarantine Clause shepherds differ from scientific men ; they believe it to be un- reasonable to suppose that a flock with two or three spots of scab, or just after being dipped, will infect any other...

YORK. MB. EDITOB,-Your "own" York corres- pondent has of late been rather sparing in hi» valuable communications to you, and recently allowed an opportunity to pass by which might have afforded him the means of gracing your columns with one of his spirited descriptions of what is going on here. To remedy to some ex- tent such remishiiess, I venture to address you to day. We possess here in York a Mechanics' Insti- tute which, for roominess, if not for architectural beauty, can vie with any other in the colon}' ; unfortunately it is but rarely made use of tor the purposes for which it was erected, from what causes, I must leave to others to conjec- ture.

I shall be very happy to give my instru- ment over to any one of the " Musical persons," when one of those individuals volunteers to take it. It can scarcely be expected that working men, of which the band is almost entirely composed, can afford the time to fit the critical ear of the correspondent of your contemporary in yester- days, paper, but I may, inform you that the several members of the band have entire confi- dence in Mr. Bryan, who is indefatigable in his endeavors to instruct and I confidently assert that not one member of it desires to be master; people learning the rudiments of any science are apt to be inquisitive, and may sometimes appear to themselves to know more than they aetually do, but are easily convinced of their error when their instructor is not altogether arrogant With resp...

FREEMASONRY—WHAT IS IT? (From the Dundee People's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

FREEMASONRY-WHAT IS IT? (From the Dundee People's ' Journal.) This is a question that has often been asked, but who can answer it ? Freemasonry is wide- spread over the globe, and embraces millions of the initiated ; but mankind in general areas dark upon the mysterious craft as though there was no such thing existing. The craft flourishes in this country, and includes many hundred thous- and brethren, who keep the secrets as faithfully as-though they were hermetically sealed up in their hearts. Freemasonry is a great fact, a noble, universal institution, which embraces within its folds people of all slimes, creeds, and colours. " What is Freemasonry ?" was a ques- tion asked by good Queen Elizabeth, who wish- ed to be admitted to the craft ; and finding that n0 one of the softer sex could be made a Mason, conceived that a secret that could not be reveal- ed to,the Queen most be injurious to the throne, and sent an armed force to disperse the Grand XodgeAt York, where she was holdin...

DENMARK IN THE EARLY IRON AGE. [From the Times.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

DENMARK IN THE EARLY IRON AGE.* [From the Times.'] The kingdom of Denmark is singularly rich in relics of the past-an attraction which it owes, perhaps, to its physical peculiarities. Its peat mosses repel cul- ' tivation, while, at the same time, they invite the searcher after fuel to dig deeply. In a region of permanent pasture the ground is left untouched ; in an arable country the surface merely is disturbed, except, indeed, where subsoil drainage has become the rule. We will first glance at the general aspect presented by Danish antiquities, pointing out the various epochs to which they were severally attributed, and the peculiar features distinguishing each period« We will then select for illustra- tion some of the most important of Mr. Engelhardt's discoveries. In Denmark, as ia other countries, there was a time reaching up into a remote and mysterious past, concerning which no written annals are extant, but whose history has nevertheless been un- consciously chronicled by th...

RITUALISM. (From the " Times.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

KITUALISM. (From the " Times.") Notwithstanding the remonstrances of Archbishops and Bishops, the Ritualists still continue and even increase their ex- travagancies. These gentlemen maintain one convenient exception in their general enthusiasm for ecclesiastical practices. They exhibit a profound disregai'd for the ecclesiastical virtue of obedience, and re- fuse the slightest respect to the admo- nitions of their superiors in the Church. We do not believe there is any other pro- fession in which such a unanimous opinion as has been expressed by the highest authorities against these practices, would have been so contemptuously disregarded by those to whom it was addressed. The churches which were so notorious last spring are equally notorious still, and a visit to such a place as St. Alban's, Hol- born, on the occasion of what is called the "High Service," is still sufficient to startle even the most tolerant of ordinary Churchmen. Priests, as they delight to call themselves, in def...

THE CAPACITY OF THE EARTH FOR ITS POPULATION. [From the Daily Telegraph.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

THE CAPACITY OF THE EARTH FOR ITS POPULATION. [From the Daily Telegraph."] Will the earth ever be too small for our race, as many countries-China, England, and others -are for their inhabitants at this day ? It is a curious speculation, and one that has engaged in- genious minds, some of which have declared that the organic life of animals and plants add perpetually to the bulk of the planet. Others have anticipated wholesale modifications in humanity: so that, being masters of the region of air, and being otherwise developed, the family ~of man will be at no loss for elbow-room ; while the Darwinians affirm, with the strict and cold logic of their theory, that the doctrine of " Na- tural Selection " will for ever weed the weakest out, and proportion the number of living men to the spheroid which they occupy. The last view seems most plausible, since these philoso- phers can point to the fact that, if some such principle did not govern the animated woild, our earth wou d have been c...

MURDER OF FOUR DETECTIVES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 March 1867

MURDER OF FOUR DETECTIVES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. During December a party of four constables have been brutally murdered by the bushrangers of New South Wales. It appears that some months ago four constables, named Kennagh, Carroll, M'Donald and Phegan-Carroll being the leadei of the party-were despatched to ,îoôk after a well-known gang of bushrangers, ^ôwn as Clarke's gang. Through their exer- tions several parties who had harboured the bushrangers had been brought to trial, one of the gang had been shot and another captured. The constables were disguised as surveyors, and encamped within a mile of Clarke's house, os- tensibly for the purpose of surveying. Clarke, however, either learned or suspected the real object of the " surveyors," and resolved to take means-to compass their destruction. Their first attack oif the camp of the constables failed, and as no information had been received with regard to the second and fatal attack, an ac- count of the previous one writteu by Carroll h...

REVIEW. (From the Times.) Astronomy without Mathematics. By EDMUND BECKETT DENISON, L.L.D., Q.C., &c. London. Sir Isaac Newton divined long ago-and subsequent experiments have confirmed his "marvellous divination"-that the earth is about 5£ times as heavy as if it were all made of water. At first sight it seems impossible to find scales big enough for the weighing of a ball 8000 miles in diameter, but it has been done, in the following way among others. If we fasten a pieee of lead to a bit of string, it will, of course, hang downwards, because of the attraction of the earth, and constitutes the familiar object called the plumb-line. Another plumb-bob, 100 feet distance from the first, will also hang downwards, but its line will not be exactly parallel to the first, because they each point to the centre of the earth, just as all the pins point to the centre in a circular pin- cushion. The deflection in this case between the two lines will amount to one second, but if they ar...
