Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1864. The News of the Month. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 October 1864

PERTH GAZETTE & W.A. TIMES "Be just and fear not ;   Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's." -Shakspeare. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1864 THE NEWS OF THE MONTH. But seldom has a mail arrived from Europe containing a smaller amount of interesting intelligence than that which reached Perth on Tuesday evening. In Europe the chief topic of the month has been the probable settlement of the fruits of the Danish war, which it ap- pears is likely to end in giving a fresh frontier and a new Head to one of the thirty-six states forming the Germanic Confederation, and the final separation of Holstien and Schleswig from Denmark. But so far from the war having fulfilled the desire of the minor states, by uniting them against the preponderacy of Prussia and Austria, all the carnage has been utterly useless, those powers, to all ap- pearance, having come to a better under- standing than before, and the pretensions of the smaller states are treated w...

Correspondence. DEPREDATIONS BY NATIVES. THE GALLON LICENSE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 October 1864

CORRESPONDENCE DEPREDATIONS BY NATIVES. THE GALLON LICENSE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR, -We think here it was an erroneous policy which led to sparing the slayers of the deceased Lewis. The tribe to which his three murderers belonged are wild cannibals ; twelve months before the same three men had killed and eaten one of Gray and Waldeck's horned beasts ; Watson got their names but did not apprehend them. The result of those three men not being hung is this : the tribe to which they belonged have got to hear that they are to stay at Rottnest a little time and then re- turn to their tribe, and that the black-fellows can gidgie and kill the whites, and they will not be hung for it. A man, I think his name is Botts, whose master, James Rudd, has a squatting station adjoining the Kokatea Station, where Lewis was murdered, was working in a field ; natives of the same tribe as Willaker and the other two natives belonged to, crept up to him, and placed te...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 October 1864

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. By the regular overland mail from Champion Bay which reached Perth on Friday last, the 7th instant, we learnt, with much regret, that the Zephyr which had gone up to Port Gregory with plant and stores for the Geraldine mine had got aground there. By the accounts re- ceived no calculation can be made as to the amount of injury this vessel is likely to sustain by this mishap, but hopes are entertained that it will not be of so serious a nature as was at first expected. We understand the Zephyr is insured to the full amount including cargo as far as Port Gregory. - o - On Sunday last the Sea Ripple sailed for South Australia with 61 passengers on board, making a total of 51 statute adults. The Europa will be following to the same port in the course of a few days with another load of emigrants from the Colony. - o - We understand that to-morrow there is to be a Cricket match between two married and sin- gle elevens of the metropolitan club. On the last occasion the...

THE YELVERTON CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 October 1864

  THE YELVERTON CASE.   The hope entertained by nearly every one     that the Yelverton case was finally closed ap- pears to be unfounded. Miss Longworth writes to the papers to say that all the intri- cacies of Scotch law are not yet unravelled, and at the close of six years' litigation she opens up a vista of six years moro. It seems that a Scotch marriage may be legally proved either by writ-that is, through such a re- gular proces as has just been concluded-or by reference to the oath of the parties concerned, and when one action is over the other may be- gin. Although, therefore, the final Court of Appeal has come to a decision upon a view of all the evidence that can be produced in the case, the conclusion is one by which nothing is concluded, A proceeding will be commenced in Scotland with a view to placing Major Yel- verton on his oath, and the result of this pro- cess, and not the judgment of the House ol Lords, will final...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 October 1864

AMERICA. The long inactivity of Grant before Peters- burg has been suddenly disturbed by his own act. The great new movement which was so mysteriously announced, but of which no de- tails were permitted to be published, is now disclosed. The pertinacious general has once again changed his base, and Petersburg, being as little available as a door for entering Rich- mond as the Wilderness, Spottsylvania Court- house, the North Anua, or Cold Harbour seve- rally proved to be, has been abandoned for the north side of the James, at a place called " Deep Bottom." The movement of two of his army corps, under General Foster, was made success- fully on the 27th, and it was at first supposed that Grant, with the remainder of the army, had followed. General Lee was aware of his intention prior to the 25th, as appears from an article in the 'Richmond Enquirer' of that date, which distinctly states that Grant " was evidently commencing a strategic policy, but would be overmatched by the able gene...

Diseases of Women.-Medical science in all ages has been directed to alleviate the many maladies incident to females, but Professor Hol- loway, by diligent study and attentive observa- tion, was induced to believe that nature had provided a remedy for those special diseases ; he has, after vast research, succeeded in com- pounding-his celebrated Ointment and Pills, which embody the principle naturally designed for the relief and cure of disorders peculiar to women of all ages and constitutions, whether residing in warm or cold climates. They have repeatedly corrected disordered functions which had defiled the usual drugs prescribed by medi- cal men, and still more satisfactory is it, that the malady is ...

PENAL SERVITUDE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

PENAL SERVITUDE. Sir George Grey has addressed a circular letter to the Judges, calling their attention to the Act, passed in the last session of Parliament, for amending the Penal Servitude Acts. After giving a summary of the provisions of the new Act, the general effect of which is to render the punishment of penal servitude more stringent than it was before, the Home Secretary proceeds to explain an important modification which, in accordance with the recommendation of the Royal Commissioners, is about to be introduced into the convict system in reference to the granting of remissions of punishment. He says:-     " Instead of these being granted as a reward of general good conduct as heretofore, they are now to be earned by industry alone ; general good conduct (such as implicit obedience to all prison rules) will be as indispensable as before, but will of itself count as nothing towards the obtaining a remission of a portion of the sen- tence ; that can...

JUGERNAUTH REDIVIVUS. (Friend of India.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

JUGEENÀTJTH EED1V1VUS. (Friend of India.) We saw yesterday, within a mile or two of the office where this journal is pub-' lished, a right which, was calculated to make a strong man sicken with shame and horror. It was the festival of the "Ruth Jattra," when the car of Juger- nauth is dragged forth by hundreds of people, and the roads are filled with   tens of thousands more who have come from all parts to be present at this cere- mony. The general incidents of the festival we may describe some other day - at present we wish to state a fact for the information of the authorities, and to ask a question for the information of the public. Many hours the   crowd had been surging up and down, or around the indecently painted figures, which were afterwards hauled with great straining and pulling on to the car, al- most as if the gods were too weak to help themselves. Ropes of great length were attached to the ponderous machine, and   the dense throng...

Correspondence. THE FORTUNE COPPER MINING COMPANY LIMITED. Fremantle, Western Australia, October, 19, 1864. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR, - For the information of the colonial shareholders, interested in the above undertak- ing, I beg to hand you, for insertion in your "Open Column" the following particulars, taken from Captain Penberthy's report for the month of September. William Frederick Engine Shaft. This shaft is sunk under the 40 fathom level, 2 fathoms, sinking with 6 men. The ground, at this point, is veiy sparry for sinking, conse- quently the lode is not yet intersected. In my opinion the lode does not underlie so much as in the upper levels. The lode stands about 2 feet N.W. of the bottom of the shaft. The 40 cross-cut, driving NE. of the above shaft with 2 men, to cut the south lode, at £5 per fathom. This lode I expect to intersect before my next monthly report, if the ground continues favorable. The stopes, in the back of the forty fat...

THE CAMDEN HARBOR ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

THE CAMDEN HARBOR ASSO- CIATION. THE following is a letter which has been addressed by the promoters of this Asso- ciation, to the Government of this colony, and referred to in our report of their Meeting, which we published last week : " 85 Flinders-street west Melbourne, Aug. 17. 1864. " To the Honourable the Colonial Secretary of Western Australia. " Sir,- Attracted by the liberal land regula- tions of your Government, an association has been formed here for the purpose of colonizing Camden Harbour and its vicinity, in North- western Australia ; a copy of the rules of which association we have the honour to enclose. " The association is so near completion, that it was contemplated to start the first expedition on the 1st October next ; but at a meeting of shareholders, held here last night, it was sug- gested that, for the better security of its in- terests, your Government should be applied to, to give the association a right of occupation for one year from the date of the arriv...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) In my last report I informed you that Capt. Finnerty had promised to give our Volunteer Company a good drilling on Friday last, and I assure you he did not disappoint their expecta- tions. The-company joined the enrolled force upon the parade ground, and when told off the combined forces numbered over 100 men ; after marching past at the slow, quick, and double, the gallant captain put them through a variety of light infantry manoeuvres, such as skirmish- ing, &c, &c, and as a finale extended the men along High-street and performed a little mimic warfare by taking our town, putting them through street firing, &c, altogether giving the company a couple of hour's first rate drilling, which the Volunteers seemed highly to appre- ciate, and it reminded them very forcibly of old times. The bands of both companies were upon the grounds, and the playing of the drum and fife band was excellent. In the evening the Volunteers he...

GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

GERMANY. A three months' armistice has been accepted, and "King Christian has promised to cede the Duchies of Schleswig, Holstein, and Lauenburg with the appertaining islands, and will retain a diminished territory with a million and a half of inhabitants, burdened by the expenses of war or exhausted by the ravages of the enemy. The following are the details of the basis   of the proposed peace: - Lauenburg, Schleswig, and Holstein to be ceded to the two great German Powers. The island of Arro to remain with Denmark ; Alsen, however, and the islands in the North Sea to go with Schleswig. On account of the Danish enclaves in Schleswig a rectification of the Jutland frontier will take place. The utter contempt with which Prussia has treated the authority of the Germanic Con- federation in turning General Hake and his troops out of Rendsburg and oceuping the town with a Prussian force, is remarked on by several of the Parish journals, which seem to think that such conduct ...

THE MINIMUM OF LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

THE MINIMUM OF LEGISLATION. The good people of Western Australia certainly cannot complain of over-legis- lation. They are in what some persons would call the happy condition of having no representative Parliament. A few gentlemen meet the Governor for a few days every year, have a little talk toge- ther, pass a dozen or so of measures which are intended to benefit the public, and then close the business with mutual congratulations, after which they return to their homes with the proud conscious- ness that they have done all that was ne- cessary for the maintenance of good government. We observe by Perth pa-   pers that the annual meeting of the Le- gislative Council has recently been held, and that its sittings extended over the extraordinary period of nearly four days. On the first day when the Council was called together the Governor opened the proceedings with the usual speech, after which members mutually felicitated each other and passed compliments, which however...

To the Editor of the "Perth Gasette & W. A. Times." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette & W.A. Times." SIR,- I cannot hat agree with your Northam correspondent "XYZ," that there is undue partiality shown by the Newcastle Bench to- wards Mr. Wilding, of Northam. I think the following fact speaks for itself :- At the request of the Northam settlers, Mr. J. T. Monger ap- plies for permission to keep a booth at the en- suing Northam Races ; in answer, the Resident Magistrate informs Mr. Monger he must first consult with Mr. Wilding. A petition signed by the most respectable of the Northam set- tlers is then forwarded to the Newcastle Bench, praying that Mr. Monger's application may be granted-somewhat ungraciously the petition is acceded to. Mark what follows :-the R. M. writes to Mr. Wilding informing him of the permission given, and, as if in apology for act- ing so contrary to his wishes, grants Mr. Wilding (without any application on his part) permission to keep a booth at the Newcastle Fair. In the one case, after applicatio...

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's." - Shakspeare. FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1864. NONE are so rigid as parvenus in petty matters of etiquette, and none so fearful of encroachments from the class out of which they have emerged. This in some measure accounts for the extraordinary degree of bitterness and rancour dis- played in neighbouring colonies against our own by men whose origin is the most painful subject of reminiscence to them- selves and the last they would wish to see investigated by others. Nothing could be more natural than their detestation of convicts and their horror of inferiors. The elevation to which they have themselves attained may indeed command but little respect in any quarter, although surrounded by the vulgar gorgeousness of sudden wealth, but it is sufficiently conspicuous to make them good marks for the contemptuous observations of men of less pretension, who cannot...
