Supreme Court. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 7. 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
Supreme Court. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 7. 1863. THE calendar comprised twelve cases, one of which was for rape, and another for murder, committed by a native. The other cases are comparatively trifling. Joseph White, of Greenough, labourer, was put on his trial at the opening of the Court, charged with committing a brutal assault upon Jane Rhodes, a girl of 13 years old. The evidence was not fit for publication. After a lengthened and careful investigation, the Jury returned a verdict of guilty. The Chief Justice then passed sentence of death in the usual form. The next case was that of Coban, a native, charged with the wilful murder of a white man, Thomas Hesketh, in the neighbourhood of King George's Sound, who had taken his wife as a companion. The case broke down in the evidence and by the direction of the Chief Justice, the Jury acquitted the prisoner. The Court was still sitting when our Re- porter left.
Wilberforce. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
Wilberforce. ON the departure of the Rev. H. B. Thornhill from his Cure, at Wilberforce, he was presented, by the principal in- habitants of the District, with the follow- ing Address : To the Rev. H. B. Thornhill, B.A., Chaplain of Northam, &c., &c REV. AND DEAR SIR,-We the undersigned, members of your late congregation of the Church of St. John the Baptist, at Wilberforce, where you have for over the period of three years, under many difficulties and personal inconvenience, so faithfully and zealously dis- charged the arduous duties of a Christian Minister, beg to convey to you the deep sorrow we feel that your Ministry among us has come to a close. A Ministry which we trust, under the blessing of our Heavenly Father, has been attended with beneficial results to many, if not all of your hearers. A Ministry on which we shall ever look back with unmingled feelings of pleasure and satisfaction, whether we look to the high tone of your character as a Clergyman, a gentl...
THE NEW LAND REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
THE NEW LAND REGULATIONS. THE new regulations have been published, and as we learn from a contemporary (who is no doubt the Government organ on this point) that they are to be " trans- mitted to the Secretary of State by next mail," but short time is allowed for " an expression of opinion on the part of the Agricultural Societies," as invited, and none for the consideration of any opinion that may be offered ; inasmuch as the Go- vernor and Colonial Secretary are on their travels to the Sound, whence they cannot return very long before the departure of the mail. Although we venture to differ from some of the conclusions arrived at by the Committee, we do not mean to say that our own views do more than simply represent our individual ideas on the subject. As yet we have not been favoured with the sentiments of the Agricultural Societies, but we imagine they will be more likely to correspond with ours than with the propositions laid down. In the first place, the Committee have propose...
The Open Column. TIMBER-CUTTING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
&nbsp; &nbsp; TIMBER-CUTTING. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-As you are drawing attention to the Timber of this country, and the efforts made by Mr. Yelverton to establish an export trade in this valuable article, will you remind wood-cutters that among the old mahogany-cutters in Honduras it is a rule that no trees shall be felled while the moon is bright. The best time (and the only time for timber to last) for cut- ting is within a few days before or after New Moon. If timber is cut while the moon is bright, or near the full, it will not keep for any thing like the time. QUERCUS.
Horses for India. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
Horses, for India. THE following letter has been received by &nbsp; Mr. S. E: Burges, from a well-known firm at Madras :- Madras, 15th August, 1863. DEAR SIR,-Our mutual friends in London, Messrs. Cavan, Lubbock & Co., have requested us to furnish you with some information re- specting the Import of Horse3 from Australia into this Presidency. We have much pleasure in doing so, and shall be glad at any time to be of service to you in any way we can. Horses for this market should be from 14 hands 3 inches to 15 hands 2 inches in height ; age from 4 to 6 years ; if in pairs, well-matched as to colour ; and any colour is liked excepting piebald. They should be broken for either saddle or draught, or both; and would, in this case, meet with a ready sale. Mares are not wanted. This year, there have been two shipments of horses from Western Australia, altogether 150 - which sold, for the most part, as soon as landed. The prices obtained for broken horses from 400 rupees up ...
TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
TO CORRESPONDENTS. WE thank a host of kind friends for their com- plimentary letters. There is plenty of envy and jealousy in the colony to insure us our fair share of enemies, whose malice we are prepared to endure with meekness and resignation. Abuse from ignorant scribes is a kind of cayenne that sharpens our resolution, and ex- hilarates our spirits.

Our Chimney Book Tales for Country Headers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich Zschokkc.) [Continued from our last] CHAPTER IV. HERE he was hastily addressed by a Mameluke-" I'm glad I have met you domino. Is the Rose-girl in the side- room ?" The Mameluke rushed into it, but returned in a moment evidently dis- appointed. " One word alone with you, domino," he said, and led Philip into a window recess in a retired part of the hall. " What do you want ?" asked Philip. " I beseech you," replied the Mameluke, in a subdued yet terrible voice, " where is the Rose-girl?" " What is the Rose-girl to me ?" " But to me she is everything !" answer- ed the Mameluke, whose suppressed voice and agitated demeanour showed that a fearful struggle was going on within. "To me she is every thing. She is my wife. You make me wretched, prince! I conjure you, drive me not to madness. Think of my wife no more !" "With all my heart," answered Philip, drily; "what have I to do with ...
Our Back Parlour. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
Our Back Parlour No. II LAST Saturday evening our Deputy-Sub- Editor gave his second Grand Reception this season. He woke up from a doze before the fire at 11h. 35m. p.m. His pipe had dropped into his beer-jug, just as he himself dropped into slumber ; and when he awoke again, he was astonished to find himself in Our Back Parlour instead of the pit of the Haymarket Theatre, where he had usually spent his Saturday evenings in happier times. " Ah, well !" sighed MR. MYTH, as he locked ruefully into his beer-jug, " per- haps it is better as it is. My morals are, of course, improving. A fine healthy place this for one's morals. No evening amusements ; no Cyder-cellars, no Coal- holes, no Supper-rooms, no lobsters, no oysters - no nothing. Where is my Welsh rabbit ? Where are my devilled kidneys in the intervals of song? All sacrificed for lucre and ambition. A magnificent salary, unlimited confidence, a numerous staff of menials - Halloo ! Without, there, scoundrels !" [A sleepy Printer...
West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
West Australian Times DISCITE, JURTITIAM, MONITI Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1863. THE tumult and excitement caused by the launch of our small frigate may be described as still unsubsided. The public mind is still agitated by the important question - what line of politics will be pursued? By some deep thinkers it is considered that we belong to the Secret Police, and are in the pay of Government, holding ourselves out as a tempting bait to the disaffected to come and confide to us their desperate intentions against the peace of the State. Others incline to think us of fearful radical, and even republican tendencies, and have anxiously suggested to the watchful and wary Executive, that a Cordon of Police be permanently established round our pre- mises. This idea has gained some strength, from the fact of the energetic Inspector of that effective force having been seen to ride several times past our Establishment, with an ambiguous ex- pression of countenance and bespattere...
PERTH COLLEGIATE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 October 1863
PERTH COLLEGIATE SCHOOL. WE are glad to find that an effort is being made to re-imburse the Bishop of Perth the sum he has so kindly and liberally expended, in the erection of the School buildings, at Perth. For ,£1,650 much more accommodation should have been provided, but there is the result. It is also sought to lay the foundation of a Public School. A Provisional Com- mittee of Management has been ap- pointed, and if they can only prevail upon themselves to allow the thing to work in a practical and rational manner, without tying their own hands and feet, and ham- pering themselves with unnecessary difficulties, there is every reason to believe that good will result from the movement. According to a little pamphlet headed " Statutes and Regulations," which we presume is to be their " vade mecum," they are not only going to teach "the Holy Scriptures in the original tongues " (Greek and Hebrew), together with the Classics and Mathematics, but also " any language, art, branch of s...

Miscellaneous. PROSECUTION OF BISHOP COLENSO.-We learn by the mail from the Cape of Good Hope, that the writ summoning the Bishop of Natal to appear before the Bishop of Capetown as metropolitan, on the 22nd Nov., to answer to a charge of having published heretical opinions, has been received by the bishop's proctors. It is not expected that Dr. Colenso will acknow- ledge the jurisdiction. DEPARTURE OF THE "GREAT EASTERN" FROM &nbsp; THE MERSEY.-The Great Eastern sailed from the Mersey on the 30th June for New York. The big ship took out about 6,000 tons of cargo, 130 cabin and 600 steerage passengers. The Great Eastern called at Queenstown, where it was expected she would embark about 500 more THE GREAT ROUPELL FORGERIES.-The Roupell case, perhaps the most singular romance ever brought out in a court of justice, was again re-opened at Chelmsford, some of the holders of &nbsp; the Essex property resisting its surrender to the heir-at-law. It will be remembered that t...

Eastern Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863
Eastern Colonies. WE extract the following items of intelli- gence from the Telegraphic Summaries of the South Australian Register and Weekly Mail: SOUTH AUSTRALIA. A purse of £600 has been presented by the sheep-farmers to Mr. H. T. Morris, Chief In- spector of Sheep, as an acknowledgment of his exertions, which have effected the total eradi- cation of scab throughout the colony. A small private party, in charge of Mr. Thomas McFarlane, has lately started for the purpose of exploring the country to the north and west of Streaky Bay as far as the western boundary of the colony. A Bill to be introduced by Government rela- tive to the Northern territory temporarily attached to South Australia will provide for two classes of land being laid out for sale in areas of about 250,000 acres each; the first to be offered in preliminary orders at 7s. 6d. per acre, and the second quantity to remain for subsequent disposal at 12s. 6d. Each prelimi- nary order will include a free grant of a town ...
Northam. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863
Northam. THE romantic valley which leads to Toodyay was last week a scene of extraordinary excite- ment, owing to the mysterious disappearance of two most interesting, accomplished, and charming young ladies, (visiting in the neigh- bourhood), who had wandered too far into the bush on a botanical excursion, and lost their way. According to the statement of our agitated correspondent, they were not found by their anguished friends until the following morning, having passed the night courageously cheering each other, and display- ing all that heroism which distinguishes the sex under trying circumstances. If the gar- bled account of our correspondent deserves any credit (which we think it does not) the ladies lost their way during an animated discussion of a question which at present agitates the social system to its core-namely, the supe- riority of box plaitings over puffings or ruches.
