LORD A. S. CHURCHILL ON TRANSPORTATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 December 1864

LOKD A. S. CHURCHILL ON TRANSPORTATION. The following letter has been received î>y the Hon. Secretary of the York Agri- cultural Society, C. Wittennoom, Esq., from Lord A. S. Churchill : London, 16 Rutland Gate, S.W., October 5,1864. SIB,-I have to acknowledge the receipt of Tour letter of the 26th of May, on behalf of the York Agricultural Society of Western Austra- lia, in which you have done me the honour to .convey " the thanks of that Society to myself -and the other gentlemen who cooperated with me, for the interest manifested and the exertions made on behalf of the colony during the late discussion on the subject of transportation to Western Australia." I cannot but feel much flattered by this spon- taneous expression of the feelings and senti- ments of the Colonists of Western Australia, but, while tendering my full acknowledge- ments for the same, I wish to disclaim any un- due merit to myself, which may, with greater justice, attach to those who took a far more prominen...

WHO? WHAT? AND WHEREFORE? OR, A FEW FACTS FOR THE INVALID. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 December 1864

WHO? WHAT? AND WHEREFORE? OR, A FEW FACTS FOR THE INVALID. Have our readers ever heard of Professor Holloway ? Undoubtedly they have, just a» they have heard of HUMBOLDT, ARAGO, OER- STED, SILLIMAN, AGASSIZ, and othes noteable men of learning. But have they never asked themselves " who " and " what" he is ? If they have no definite information on that mat- ter, we will proceed to enlighten them. The Professor^ is a native of that country which pro- duced Harvey, Hunter, Abernethy, and other illuminati of medical science. So much for thfr WHO ; and now for the WHAT. He is to other physicians what CLAY, WEBSTER and CALHOUN were to statesmen, what WASHINGTON-re- vered name !-was to patriots and generals what SHAKESPEARE was to dramatists, and IR- VING and CHALMERS to preachers,-viz : the greatest of his age and profession. His repu- tation has penetrated the ecrustations of preju- dice surmounted the barriers of malice, and he avowedly stands alone, the MEDICAL CO- LOSSUS of the world....

FAIR PLAY FOR ALL MEN. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 December 1864

FAIR PLAY FOR ALL MEN. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,-A well-known character, Theodore Krakouer, having been acquitted of a serious charge at the last Criminal Sittings of the Su- preme Courb, Has naturally incurred the resent- ment of many who cannot forgive him for not being proved guilty. He appeals to me, as his late Counsel, for aid which I have no means of rendering. You are more powerful, as you can afford him a hearing before the tribunal of pub- lic opinion, which demands fair-play for even the worst characters. If his statements should hereafter be proved false, I will make all the atonement in my power for having believed them true. He says that ever since his release he has had " troubles" thrust upon him. He had no sooner arrived at the mines than his late prosecutor, Thomas Phillips, assaulted him with a great stick, six feet long, whilst he was seated on the ground. The first blow, on his head, stunned him ; the blood flew out, and he l...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 January 1865

Carnspnkna. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-I beg most respectfully to ask for your kind assistance, in seeking from Govern- ment some modification of the act for Licensing Dogs. As the preamble states, it was made for the " abating of nuisances," but as it has not an- swered the purpose for which it was intended, it ought to be revised and corrected. Last week 1 was summoned to York, a distance of fitty-five miles, for an unlicensed dog, while I know that scarcely any one does pay, except now and then tor one dog out of ten as a sort of bribe. The act has long been unpopular with all parties, and the general opinion has been that the correct thing is to evade it ; but I have not taken this course, I have given my reasons and refused to pay. So that, as the policeman said, although others had not paid I was the only one who had refused to pay. And what did the Chairman say to this ? why he lined me one pound and told the policeman to give other people a month'...

DEMOCRACY AND DESPOTISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 January 1865

DEMOCRACY AOT> DESPOTISM. IN our war with Russia, the sympathy of the free Anglo-Saxon nation across the Atlantic was not given to the mother country, but to the Government of Nicholas ; and while England laments and denounces the atrocities committed by Russia upon the Poles, America supplies the Government of Alexander with his only apologists. The explanation of this anomaly lies in the similarity which, in some most important respects, exists be- tween depotism and demoracy. We know how the reign of Butler in New Orleans resembled the worst astrocities of the worst Russian governors, and how he has found imitators in Schenck, the Milroy, and Burnside. It has been reserved to General Paine to outstrip him. This man entered upon the government of Kentucky in July last, and, according to the Corres- pondent of the Chicago Tribune, a friendly organ, he addressed a deputation of citizens, whom he suspected or knew to be opposed to the war, in the following, amongst other terms : "...

THE AUSTRALIAN KNOT. (Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 January 1865

THE AUSTRATJAN KNOT. (Spectator.) A great opportunity has fallen to Mr. Cardwell. The contingency anticipated for twenty years has at last occurred, and it rests with him to carry out the policy which all England has for that period congratulated itself on accepting. For at least twenty years, ever since Sir Wil- liam Molesworth first admitted the right of the colonies to self-government, English statesmen have been repeating that the colonieswere free. We should not repeat a second time the blunder of the Ameri- can war. If Australia or the Canadas chose to stay beneath the shadow of the Empire they might stay and welcome^1 but if they chose to go they should go without hindrance or animosity. The dogma that we should never fight depen- dencies ruled by Englishmen has been re-echoed with an emphasis which proves that the speakers had at heart some latent doubt of the strength of their own resolve, They had and for this very ob- vious reason. It was just barely possible that the Col...

SUPREME COURT - CRIMINAL SIDE. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 4, 1865. (Before His Honour the Chief Justice.) DAVID READER, charged with killing and wounding Denny, an aboriginal native, on the 10th November at the Blackwood. Mr. Landor defended the prisoner. James Lee Steere, J.P., lives at the Black- wood ; prisoner was in my employment at the Blackwood, and known by the name of Chummy. On the 10th Nov. while engaged in pressing wool a native named Sammy brought me a note, but being unable at that time to attend to him, I told him to go to the native's camp. In the afternoon prisoner left work for about a quarter of an hour, and after his return I overheard something about kicking a native ; at that time the natives were calling out a great deal. I asked Reader if the natives were call- ing him, he replied he did not know. In the evening the deceased Denny was carried to my house by another native, I went out and saw him and saw that he was insensible or nearly so, but did not seem in pain. I...

HUSBANDS. (From the Saturday Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 January 1865

HUSBANDS. (From the Saturday Review.) The view which a wife takes of the character of her husband is, for obvious reasons, not always identical with that taken by the outside world. We all know cases of women finding every pos- sible excellence in men whom everybody else agrees in pronouncing very silly and very selfish; and, on the other hand, men who commonly pass for everything that is generous and high-souled are often known at home to be full of petty egotisms and unloveable weaknesses. It is a little more curious that in the latter case women, as r rule, do not even wish other people to agree with them. They pour out their complaints into the ears of patient friends, but no sooner does the friend appear to share their convictions about the husband's shortcomings than, as Nancy Lammeter said, "they turn round and praise him as if they wanted to sell him." They do not so much want sympathy as an opportunity of relieving their feelings, and nobody can become the confidant of a la...
