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

To the "Editor of the Perth Gazette ¿ç W. A. Time3. SIR,-My attention has been directed to the following paragraph from a correspondent of the Inquirer in Champion Bay, viz. :-" We have a Photographer up here endeavoring to do us in first-rate style on Carte de visites, at six for fifteen shillings, but the inducement, quality, and price included 'las taken the artist but little from his otium cum dignitate. If a really good artist would travel thus far and take the portraits at a moderate price, double the amount would be expended than when so high a price is charged." When Photographers or Artists visit a dis- trict it is a very unusual proceeding for corre- spondents to papers to write articles in dis- paragement of their abilities ;- on the contrary, in my humble experience, I have at all times found them anxious to give a fellow a lift, rather than do him an injury ; but as there appears to be a great want of knowledge by the general public in respect to the charges of Photogra...

PUT the saddle on the right horse. The Police force is notoriously inadequate to the duties it should perform, and whose fault is it ? Has the Home Government ever signified to Governor Hampton any desire that its contribution of two-thirds of the cost should not go beyond a cer- tain sum, if necessary ? we doubt it very much, and yet an insinuation of this kind is made by fche contributor of the leading article in Wednesday's Inquirer, as a basis upon which again to point out to the settlers how very wrong they are not to back up Governor Hampton's well known desire to have a share in striking some bargain with the Home Govern- ment, as to the future charge of the con- vict establishment. Says the writer " we have reason to believe that the " silence of the colony at this important "stage will indirectly be the means o...

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

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. DEAR SIR,-I have heard with much surprise that Major Crampton, in his capacity of Acting Commandant in this colony, has recently re- ported to the Government .of India that there are not more than two hundred mares in the colony fit to breed from for the Indian Cavalry, and as this is very greatly opposed to a state- ment contained in a report made by me to the same Government on a similar subject, I feel obliged to appeal to the several horse-owners in the colony to favor me with their views on the subject. I well know there are many mares which are not fit to breed from for the purpose in ques- tion let the sire be ever so unobjectionable, but there are, I am equally well aware, a con- siderable number of animals, now compara- tively thrown away, which would produce valuable stock were they put to suitable sires, and I should be glad if the replies to this ap- l peal embraced a distinction between what may be termed first class bre...

MIGRATION OF CULTIVATED PLANTS. [From the Sydney Morning Herald.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

MIGRATION OF CULTIVATED PLANTS. [Troin the Sydney Morning Herald.] From a paper on the Migration of Cultivated Plants in reference to Ethnology, written by Mr. John Crawford, and read at the last an- nual meeting of the British Association, the following interesting particulars are ab- stracted; J In so far as vegetable substance is concerned, the earliest food of man, on his first appear- ance on earth, must of necessity have consisted of wild fruits and roots, wild corns and wild pulses, and these would certainly be more abundant than we now find them. Some races of man are still found in the primitive condi- tion thus described. The natives of Australia, to this day, cultivate no plant, and have no other vegetable food than a few wild roots. The natives of the Andaman Islands have for their vegetable food only a coarse wild bean, and the still coarser fruit of the mangrove. In a similar condition are the inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego and the Esquimaux. Even of the nomadic tribe...

AUSTRIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

AUSTRIA. An imperial letter, recently published, granta .a complete amnesty for all offences against the press law, and relieves the newspapers from all legal consequences of the sentences which may have been passed upon them. FRANCE. There has been a reconstruction of the ministry, consequent upon constitutional ohanges. These changes are important. The Address in reply to the Speech from the throne is abolished, and a right to put ques- tions, subject to the assent of committees, is substituted. Instead of one minister only, as hitherto,; representing the government in the Chambers, the emperor may specially delegate any minister to peiform that duty. A change is also made in reference to the press laws. Accordiug to the information to hand, these changes appear to be of a beneficial character. It is said there is a rumour in clerical circles in Paris that the Empress Eugenie has ad- dressed a letter to the Pope, in which she informs his holiness that her journey to Rome, though p...

lertíf (Samite # IL g. Otnus. "" Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. IT must be evident to all who consider the subject, that the system of Convict Discipline in this colony is not so excel- lent as some years back we were used to believe it to be. What is it that has produced the state of disquietude among the convicts located in all parts, that has been evinced by the feverish anxiety shown to take to the bush at all risks ? That individual cases of restlessness and desire to escape from control would occur even under a mild and conciliatory sys- tem of discipline, there is no doubt, but how is it that within the last few months this disposition has increased so alarm- ingly ? We much fear we must look for the cause in the measures of the two individuals who have now concentrated in themselves the sole control of the Convict Department-His Excellency the Go- vernor and his son the Acting Comp- troller Genera...

ADVANCE IN PRACTICAL AGRICULTURE. (From the Albany Country Gentleman.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

ADVANCE IN PRACTICAL AGRI- CULTURE. (From the Albany Country Gontleman.) Who can look back over a period of forty or fifty years , or even half that time, and compare the present mode of agriculture with that then existing, can fail of seeing the great progress that has been made? Compare the profit gained from the same farm twenty to fifty years since, with that gained at the present day, and generally it will¡be found doubled, and frequent- ly trebled or more ; á necessary result, our farm- ers are growing more easy in their circumstan- ces, if not rich, and this increase of wealth by agricultural industry is steady and altogether unprecedented. This addition increases the value of our lands, so that in many instances it has been quadrupled or more. These facts should act as a double stimulant to those who are following in the old beaten track that their ancestors pursued, to break away and engage heartily in the work of progress and improve- ment. The farmer should adopt as his m...

&Qtn*jwtàmL To the Editor of the Perth Gazette cfW.A. Times, >] SIB,-Just two years have elapsed since the Local Government chartered a vessel to convey to Roebuck Bay an expedition, fitted out at Government expense, under the command of Mr. Maitland Brown, for the purpose of ascer- taining the fate of Messrs. Panter, Harding, and Goldwyer. In the May following the Ves- sel returned, and few will ever forget the pro- found sensation, occasioned by the intelligence that the vessel had brought back the bones all that remained-of the"murdered men. When an early day was named for the interment of their remains, much dissatisfaction was ex- pressed from a conviction that those who lived at a distance would readily incur the trouble and expense of a journey to Perth, and would feel it a hardship, if the time fixed for the funeral precluded their attendance. This im- pression proved correct. When the day of in- terment came Perth was filled with;a concourse of people, whose sorr...

INDIA. THE COMMERCIAL YEAR 1866. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

INDIA. THE COMMERCIAL TEAR 1866. Memorable as the year has been on many accounts, it has been yet more me- morable as a time of trial, beyond com- parison bitter and pinching to the com- mercial world. If it had not established its claim to be remembered as the year of the great famine, it would not speedily fade out of recollection on account of the vicissitudes which during its continuance, have overtaken commerce, in consequence of the collapse of finance and speculative agencies. Even as far back as the middle of 1865, there had been signs of the crash that was to overtake the speculators at home ; but the fall of Atwood, Spooner, and Co. was unheeded, and the whirl was urged on if possible more madly than ever. Thoughtful men, who watched the course of affaii-s as they proceeded in England and Bombay, prepared them- selves for the storm which they saw was inevitable, and aided by the judicious and firm attitude of the Bank, secured them- selves from its consequences. In Bombay ...

LADIES' BROTHERS. [From the London Review.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

LADIES' BEOTHEES. [From the London Review.'] A brother cannot joke with ease at the home dinner. Everyone feels that they need not laugh at him if they do not choose. It is only Tom, or Jack, or Harry, and nobody cares to encourage his humour, they see enough of it and of him. He is chucked up remorselessly. His little pun is allowed to die without a sign of recognition, his story is drowned in a more audible absorption of the soup than if company were present, his ques- tion is left unanswered or thrown off the line of conversation by another question from Emily or Jane, who don't in the least interest themselves in what a brother wants to know. We believe this, after all, is a wholesome system ; that it is bet- ter any way than the opposite extreme, where young gentlemen are accustomed, as Longfellow writes, to "speak blank verse in the bosom of the family. '.' Bro- thers who come from this sort of nest are mostly of the smallest intellectual account. We fiud them publishing nonse...

BRISBANE. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

BRISBANE. (By a Cosmopolitan.) (From the Australasian.} There is a city called, Brisbane, of which I presented myself with the freedom after a long residence of four days and a half. The duration of my stay I found quite long enough, though I was as much at home there as the oldest in- habitant. It may be necessary to state that Brisbane is the capital of a place called Queens- land, where people go to lose their money by amateur farming and other equally profitable speculations. Brisbane consists of a river, an hotel, a town hall, a street, Cobb's coach, and a considerable sprinkling of steamboats. There is also a Par« liament-house in embryo. The river is beauti- ful, and the journey down it from the sea to the wharf is as pleasant a bit of steam-boating as one could desire-that is to say, it would be if the heat was not so great, for Queensland, like South Carolina, " is a sultry clime," I may say a particularly sultry clime. The banks of the river is well wooded, and look so bea...

Arrival of the Mails. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

Arrival of the Mails. THE European January and Colonial February Mails were received in Perth yesterday at noon. There was only one passenger from the Colonies, a commer- cial gentleman, who arrived in the passen- ger van on Monday evening. " : The European intelligence is as gene- rally uninteresting as that by the last two mails. The continental situation re- mained unaltered, and the shadows oP~\ coming events were not to be seen. In ** Great Britain the only topics of the day were the Reform demonstrations, the» severe weather and consequent distress« among the poor classes, and a number of' sad accidents arising from ice and snow. Mr. H. Wakeford has been appointed , Comptroller-Q-eneral, and will probably arrive by the next mail. The most cheering news from the Colo- nies is that there is a tendency to a rise in the flour market, which during the month had gone down as low as ¿810 per ton ; the latest quotation is ¿811 for town brands.

ESCAPE OF "MOONDYNE JOE." (From a Fremantle Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 March 1867

ESCAPE OF "MOONDYNE JOE." (From a Fremantle Correspondent.) Probably no event in the colony ever more tickled the risible faculties of the public, than did the escape of the notorious convict " Moondyne Joe," on the after- noon of Thursday, last week. Much of the amusement felt arose from remem- brance of the theatrical exhibition made of Joe by the Acting Comptroller General, when he was last captured-chaining him to a post in one of the yards, and Mr. Hampton improving the occasion by addressing the assembled prisoners, and pointing out to them Joe's sad condition, as an example of what would befal them if they went and did likewise. Joe's ingenuity in making his escape from his apparently hopeless condition, has gained him many sympathisers, who express an opinion that he has earned his freedom, more especially as Mr. Hampton is said to have told him, when he saw him put into the cell which had been specially prepared for him, that if he managed to make his escape again, he would...

1 I To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $W A. Times. SIB,-As you are known to be a willing advo- cate for those who have no friends, I hope you will stand up for the rights of the black fellows who have no protector in this district. Of course you are aware that when certain persons feel inclined for a change of air, and the public become anxious for their safety, our ser- vices are called in to track them. Now, we are quite willing to do this, provided that we are properly paid, but to be kept hang- ing about the Police stables without pay, until we are actually wanted, and to see the Police sit comfortably on their horses while we do the work, and they receive the lion's share of the reward for the recovery of the lost lambs, is too much for the patience of even a " black fellow." If it has been found necessary to pay a regu- lar salary to secure the services of the man who performs the last sentence of the law, surely, we who find him the material to work upon, ought not to be for...
