Wanerenooka. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 January 1864

Wanerenooka. (From a Correspondent.) On Thursday, the 10th December, Mr. John Hosken opened the " Miners' Anns" Hotel, on a plot of ground situated between the Wane- renooka and the Gwalla Mines, and contiguous to the spot surveyed for the new townsite. Al- though the miners during the week congregated in large numbers, everything passed off satis- factorily, the most perfect order and decorum being observed. The want of public accommodation in this part of the district has long been felt, and it is to be hoped that the opening of this Inn will tend to put a stop to the long-existing practice of selling spirits at the Mines without a license.

®kv <flpw*ß "§aak Tales for Country Baaders. THE SPECTRE GUEST. the late M. R. Mitfoed.) [Continued.] "It oives me pleasure, Herr Bantes," said the stranger, in slow and gentle accents, " to make your acquaintance. I should have announced myself in the morning, but I found that I required rest after my journey, and I was afraid to inconvenience you and your family immediately after my arrival." " Too much honour, too much honour !" replied Herr Bantes, in visible perplexity. "But-" and here a strange shudder came over him. He hardly dared to trust his eyes. He handed the stranger a chair, and wished himself a hundred miles away. The stranger bowed slowly, very slowly, took his seat, and said ; " You do not know me ; but, doubtless, you guess who I am?" Herr Bantes felt as if the hairs were lifting the wig off his head. Courteously and anxiously he shook his head, and said, with constrained civility : " I have not the honour of your acquaintance." "I am Hahn, the son of yo...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 January 1864

Uti %ntixüiM ®im*0. Discite Justitiam, Moniti. Hear and be just. THURSDAY, JANUARY 7, 1864. That there should be good schools for the education of boys is a proposition which no one is likely to deny. The question is, how to obtain them ? In country districts the Clergy have no very great amount of weekly duty to perform, although they may have a good deal' of hard riding on Sundays. Their incomes are usually almost infinitesimal, and therefore it is reasonable to suppose that some might not object to eke them out by bestowing three or four hours daily in trying to improve the mental culture of a few of the boys in their immediate neighbourhood. The Clergy are the best educated men in the Colony, and there- fore, in that respect, the best qualified to instruct others. If it be the object of a Clergyman to do good and be of use to mankind, he can seldom be better em- ployed than in imparting his own know- ledge and attainments to the young. It is not essential that he should become a...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 January 1864

%\t ®pn UUm. To the Editob of the W. A. Times. Sir,-When a humble individual approaches a person in your exalted position, he does it with a sort of tremor. There is a something in that potent " we" which Editors assume, that makes most men afraid, and we only, at lost, muster up courage enough to come into the presence, by reflecting that an Editor is, after all, but an ordinary mortal, and that the use of the plural pronoun does not necessarily make his arguments any the better. It is after some such comforting reflection as this that I venture to a3k permission to comment a little upon your leading article in last week's paper, in which, by way of Christmas fare, you kindly favour us with your notions of philanthropy and banking. I am sorry, but the proffered cheer is not to my taste. You introduce your, subject by pleasantly remii)dín£r-u9 of tax old nursery acquaintance, 'whose ideas of the duties of government were limited to "counting out his money." Upon this I shall only ob...

Supreme Court. Criminal Sittings. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) Wednesday, January 6, 1864. James White, charged with feloniously stabbing John Lynn, at Bunbury, with intent to do him grievous bodily harm. Mr. Landor was Counsel for prisoner. John Lynn, the first witness, stated that on 30th November last he was in the service of Mr. Properjohn, of the Capel Farm, and heard prisoner beating his sheep-dog— the prisoner being Mr. Properjohn's shepherd. Witness went to the place where he heard the dog ; met prisoner, and told him he was going for the dog. Prisoner said he had better not take the dog, or he would take his life. Afterwards he was taking away the dog, when prisoner came to him, and without a word stabbed him in the shoulder with a knife. He called out " Tom, I am stabbed," and then the pri- soner went towards the house— I follow- ing him. My wound was washed, and I then went to the Hospital. Thomas Fletcher, another servant of Mr. Properjohn, proved the state of t...

The Colonial Mails [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

The Colonial Mails Arrived in Perth yesterday morning. We give below the most interesting ex- tracts from the local papers : VICTORIA. Melbourne and its suburbs have been visited by heavy rains and violent tempests. So great was the force of the wind that trees were up- rooted in all directions, and roofs and chimneys destroyed-the rain falling in torronts, and without intermission. Streets were flooded, and in some places the water was three feet deep upon the roads. St. Kilda and Sandridge were exposed to the whole fury of the tempest, and the beach was strewed with ruins. Seve- ral bridges near town have been washed away, and the parks and orchards have been deprived of many of their finest trees. Many of the houses and other buildings, which have for some days been under water, along the whole course of the Yarra on both «ides, are begining to totter, and some have already fallen. A large proportion will cer- tainly have to be rebuilt, though their owners may hereafter select a ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 January 1864

To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-Tour correspondent " Sacrifice" does neither honour to the Bank nor himself. If his letter, couched as it is in not over temperate language, met your observations fairly, it would lead to public good, and there- fore be entitled to due respect and con- sideration. If I correctly understand it, your corre- spondent meant to say in "plain English" . The Directors cannot accommodate their cus- tomers and the Public by Branch Establish- ments, or reduce their rate of interest, for the following reasons :-That, inasmuch as every shareholder in the Bank is liable to his last , shilling, to make good all loss in case of failure, they are entitled to large profit, and have nothing to do with public accommodation. That, instead of making profit out of "needy i farmers" and "hard-up tenants," they can only make profit by advances to storekeepers and others on mercantile security : not on the sound banking principle of loans on good Com- mercial Bills, ha...

@%* ê$tn drlnmit. To the Editor of the W. A. Times. Sir,-Several exaggerated assertions respect- ing the fire at this place having been reported in the Perth Gazette of the 11th instant, and one to the effect that a farm belonging to me was destroyed, permit me, through your columns, to deny that statement. Nothing was destroyed at my farm, except about one acre of wheat. That the whole standing crop, and all the farm buildings and stables would have been destroyed, I have not the slightest doubt, had it not been prevented by the un- solicited exertions of about 100 or 150 disin- terested individuals, chiefly farm-labourers, to whom I should show great ingratitude if I did not make this public acknowledgement, and at the same time tender them my sincere and gratefnl thanks for their untiring exertions (under a scorching sun and in a fearful hot land-wind) by which alone the properly hera referred to was saved. Tours truly, Henry Grat. Greenough Flats, December. 28,1863.

Supreme Court. Criminal Sittings. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) Wednesday, January 6, 1864. [Abridged from the Perth Gazette.! William Wallis and George Brown, expirées, charged with robbery with violence of JË3 from Patrick Cullen, at Guildford. Mr. Howell appeared on behalf of the prisoners and called the attention of the Court that three persons were originally committed upon the charge, and that Fidler, one of the three was not indicted, but was still in prison, and therefore he requested that he might be dis- charged. The Court directed that Fidler should be discharged. Patrick Cullen-On 24th October was with the prisoners drinking at Herbert's at Guildford, where I treated them. I had received £5 6s. I went to Fidler's house with them to dinner; They knew I had money upon me. Wallis also lived in the same house, he produced a pack of cards and Fidler and myself played against the prisoners at a game called twenty-fives; Wallis and myself betted, he won the first time, ...
