THE MEAT CONTRACT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

THE MEAT CONTRACT. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-The excitement is now over with re- gard to the tendera for supplying the Imperial Government with fresh meat, and, I am very sorry to say, in a most unsatisfactory way. The contractors have most recklessly had their fight without making any previous arrangement about purchasing fat stock from the settlers, taking it as a matter of course that they must sell to them at the contract price, whatever it might be. The low price, 3Jd., will cast a great gloom over the breeders of stock, par- ticularly those who are obliged to sell. Mr. Birch has the Perth contract at 3Jd. For Fre- mantle and Guildford there were ties, which being referred to the Governor, he determined that the contractors should be chosen by draw- ing lots-a species of gambling, worthy of our convict Colony. I met the two contractors who had the toss up, and I do not know which looked most disconcerted. I was told by one of the parties that the Governor hod expre...

em indi farUur. No. xn. -« [Present-Our DEPUTY-SUB-EDITOR, Miss CHUMP, ME. WOBBLES, and the Poet SPROUTS.] MB. DEPUTY-Now, Sprouts, let us have a faithful narrative of your adven- tures. You started with your knapsack for York Fair? SPROUTS-I did, Sir. It was day- break when I left the City. The Land wind, like myself, had only just awoke from slumber, and came sweeping down the river in fitful gusts. It was stagger- ing in its first dawn of life, like the foot- steps of early childhood, and there was a dreamy music in the tones that went murmuring down the water, that sounded to my fancy like half-revealed mysteries of the Night past. ME. DEPUTY to Miss CRUMP-Hark to him, Madam. The poet wakes up within him-at early dawn. ME. WOBBLES-Go straight for'ard, young man. None of your gammon. MB. DEPUTY-Wobbles, you must not interrupt him. I will not allow you to throw a damper over his genius. MB. WOBBLES-His genius ain't worth a damper. I'd sooner throw it to my dog, old Tray. MB. DEPUT...

COLONIAL LUNATICS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

COLONIAL LUNATICS. AT this Christmas time, when the unfor tunate of all classes have a peculiar claim upon our sympathies, we wish to awaken some feeling of interest for those who are the least thought of in our little com- munity. Last week we alluded to the crowded state of the temporary asylum at Fremantle—to the overflow of lunatics in the Colony—a small number, indeed, altogether, but still entirely unprovided with the necessaries which, in other civilized countries, are now attached to the condition of the insane. None of the public, and very few officials, know any- thing of the course of treatment pursued towards the insane in this Colony. It is a question, however, that affects us all. At any moment we may be individually visited with similar affliction, and become pensioners upon the humanity of the Go- vernment, as displayed in the (so-called) asylum at Fremantle. In the first place we may inquire, is there any method or system pursued there ? Are proper officers and atte...

Here's Merry Christmas come again! [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 December 1863

Here's Merry Christmas come again! Here's merry Christmas come again, With all it ever used to bring — The mistletoe and carol strain, The holly in the window pane, And all the bloom from hill and plain That Winter's chilly hand can fling. It must be welcomed with a song, Though nothing new may fill the ditty ; Old-fashioned feelings may be wrong, But prejudice is very strong ; And dear old Christmas, woo'd so long, Shall find us faithful, if not witty. It comes with frolic, feast, and mirth ; It sings the chants it used to sing, And makes the yule-log on the earth An altar forge, where links of earth, That bound and broke in strongest girth, Are welded fast in Memory's ring. Here's merry Christmas ! and methinks, Although it seems on olden story, There's something pleasant in the winks Of blue-eyed fire that boils and blinks, Mocking the palm that snaps and shrinks Above the tempting plums of glory. Here's merry Christmas ! and it seems To call back childhood to the breast, With ki...

NEW YEAR'S SOLILOQUY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 December 1863

NEW YEAR'S SOLILOQUY. Yes, this is the time for mirth to be coursing In its wild-bounding gambols through city and town; Hilarity flows, all sorrow dispersing, And mockingly laughs at Azrael's frown. But speak as you will of the pleasures of time, A shadow might well cross the mirth-laden heart: A shadow I fain would embalm in my rhyme It teaches that time and mortality part. Oh Time that ever on swift-rolling pinions Is hastening on to eternity's goal, The eye that now scans thy fleeting dominions, Acts wisely to glance at the undying soul ; For myriads, ere thy brief flight shall be ended, Outstripping thy race to the ultimate pole, Shall sleep where the willow and cypress are blended But where, oh where, is the undying soul ? Thy visions, oh New Tear, are mingled with sorrow, For we think of thy Bisters that hail'd us before : We loved them, and slept ; when we woke on the morrow, They had passed from our sight, to come back nevermore !

THE MEETING ON JANUARY 13TH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 December 1863

THE MEETING ON JANUARY 13TH. WE have received many letters from Settlers in various districts, inquiring whether the Meeting is to be open to the public generally, or confined to delegates from the Agricultural Societies ? When the proposed Meeting was first suggested at Champion Bay, it was thought that flock-owners and the public at large would be glad to leave the trouble and expense of combating the new Land Regulations to the Agricultural Societies, but there is no doubt that all parties interested in the question would be gladly welcomed at Perth, and by their presence and counsel would give weight to the decisions of the Committee. We must again impress upon all those who have an interest in this important question that there is no likelihood of their doing ,any good to themselves or others, unless they are unanimously agreed upon what they want. And in order to insure unanimity where there is a large number of people to be consulted, the questions to be submitted for adoptio...

Uü australian ©im«., i DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. ' Hear and be JUST. J THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31,1863. THE time is again approaching when the fortunate shareholders of the Western Australian Bank will meet in their se- cluded Back Parlour, for the purpose of counting up and appropriating their half yearly gains. It is, we can readily imagine, one of the pleasantest pastimes of this jocund season. So at least it ap- peared to one of the early popular poets of England, who considered it to be a truly regal game-in those days probably confined to Members of the Royal Family, though now, in these popular times, ex- tended to Merchant Princes " The King was in the parlour Counting out his money" And certainly a monarch might be worse employed. It was a good example to set his people, of order, correct book-keeping, and proper business-habits. His Ma- jesty, in all probability, weighed the several bezants, crowns, marks, deniers, and sols on the tip of his royal fore- finger; tested the doub...

Am I then your mother no more ? Do I love you less than formerly ? or do you love me less since Waldrich has become your love ? Why do you blush as if you had done wrong ? In so far, you cease to open your heart to me, clear as before God, that is surely wrong." Frederika rose up, held out her arms, and, weeping, pressed her mother to her breast. " Yes, I love him. Yes, he has my promise. You know it all. I was wrong to conceal anything from my good mother ; but I would not have her share my misery, or include her too early in my sufferings. And that must be settled finally, when my father knows that I would rather die unmarried than give my hand to the one he has selected. This it was that made me silent."

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 December 1863

©&* ®igm Caluro«. To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-;Unconnected with the Colony, and in- dependent of any local or personal bias or in- fluence, after a residence of six years, united to a considerable experience of how our social and political system works at home, I feel that I am in a position to give an opinion on many subjects which naturally engross public at- tention. That the Government of every Crown Co- lony is practically oligarchical cannot be denied. That such a form of Government has ever been most arbitrary and antisocial must be equally oonoeded. At home, from the inadequate salary and other unfavourable conditions, the Executive cannot secure the services of experienced Co- lonial Governors. And the Governor, whoever he may be for the time being, finds himself hampered with a patronage for which no ade- quate provision is made, or can be made. This unfortunate state of things specially-appears in the Judicial or Magisterial branch of the Executive. I m...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 December 1863

Miscellaneous Extracts. THE CAPE AND AFRICAN COMMAND.-We understand that Bear-Admiral George St. V. King, C.B., will command the East India Sta-   tion, the limits of which will be from the Cape of Good Hope to Penang. The West Coast of Africa will be a separate command, and the commodore will probably have a red pennant. A commodore, probably Commodore Mon tressor, will be stationed at the Cape of Good Hope.-United Service Gazette. THE. CHANNEL FLEET.-The Channel fleet will shortly make a further and, perhaps, a more practical trial of the sea-going qualities of the different ships composing Bear-Admiral Dacre's command, by taking a trip to the Tagus. The fleet will probably be absent from England about six or eight weeks. The officers belonging to the various vessels express them- selves as being generally satisfied with their performances. It appears that the same can- not be said of the result of the cruise of the French iron-clad fleet, rolling, pitching, and strai...

ME. DEPUTY-Good. And then-? SPEOUTS-And then I went on to ob- serve that Poets are always the first dis- coverers of great truths. The very secrets of Nature are revealed, unasked, to poets. The man of Science only proves how cor- rect and accurate was the seemingly un- conscious foreknowledge of the man of genius.

NEW CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL.—We [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 December 1863

NEW CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL.-We have been favoured with a view of the eleva- tions and ground-plan of the building about to be erected in St. George's Terrace, between Mr. A. Shenton's premises and those occupied by D.C.G. Bovell. It is intended to accom- modate 300 persons, without the galleries, and is estimated to cost, with the land, about £1,500. About £900 of this sum is, we believe, already secured-the remainder has yet to be raised. With an energetic Minister and an united and earnest congregation, no doubt much will be accomplished in time, but we cannot suppose they will receive much aid from Members of the Church of England, so long as our own Church remains unfinished and in debt.

ECCLESIASTICAL INTELLIGENCE.— [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 January 1864

Ecclesiastical Intelligence. Archdeacon Brown has removed from York, to the great regret of the inhabitants, and has taken up his abode at the Deanery, Perth. Before leaving York he received from his parishioners various tokens of their affectionate regard. He is to be succeeded at York by the Eev. Edward Millett, who, we are happy to i leard, begins his Colonial career in a cheerful spirit, and with every expectation of liking the mode of life in a Country District. When a hearty and respectful welcome is offered on one side, and accepted on the other in a genial and affectionate spirit, there is every prospect of both parties being pleased with each other. The good-will of its inhabitants is the only acceptable offering which can be made to the pastor who is willing to submit to the priva- tions incidental to a colonial cure. In a similar spirit the Eev. Mr. Withers will be received at Bunbury. The Bishop of Perth announced last Sunday that the newly-erected portion, forming a tra...
