SAILORS' OFFENCES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 January 1864
SAILORS' OFFENCES. WE do not pretend to know whether MESSES. T. & H. CARTER «fe Co., to whose letter in another column we refer, are strictly correct in stating that the Resi- dent Magistrate of Fremantle has received "peremptory instructions" to measure .out the laws as they areprescribed through the office of the Colonial Secretary. We 'cannot believe it to be the fact that Magistrates are required to accommodate the law to the necessities, not of the case before them, but of their "peremptory instructions? By the 251st Section of the " Merchant Shipping Act, 1854," the Masters of ships are authorized to retain a sum not exceeding MB out of any sea I manWages,toreimbursetheinselves "any costs properly incurred in procuring the conviction and punishment" of such sea- man for offences committed during the voyage. This is intelligible, so far as the Master is concerned, but is the Ma- gistrate sufficiently justified and indem- nified by his " peremptory instructions" in refus...
SAN DOMINGO. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
SAN DOMINGO. Porto Flato was burnt by the Dominicans on October 4. The town was entirely destroyed, excepting the warehouses of Messrs. Ginebra Brothers. All the merchants left were ruined. The fort was held by 1400 Spanish troops, under Brigadier Rivera, who was anxiously awaiting orders from the Spanish government and expecting reinforcements from Havana and Port Rico. The Spanish were unable to fetch water for their troops from Rio San Marco in consequence of the losses experienced from attacks of the enemy. They, however, obtained water from Samana, but with difficulty. The sanitary state of the Spanish army was very unsatisfactory. Accounts by way of Havana (October 24) re- port that General Santana had gained Ids second victory over the rebels of San Domingo, having put them all to flight and captured 500 prisoners and two pieces of artillery-making foui' cannon the Spaniards had captured. By an arrival at New York we have advices from San Domingo. The revolution was in full p...
MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
MEXICO. Marshal Forey has addressed a letter to the emperor, describing the present state of affairs [which, as usual, he represents in glowing terms], and making some observations upon the stipulation of the Archduke Maximilian, that he will only definitively accept the crown upon the adhesion of the majority of the Mex- ican States, This adhesion, Marshal Forey Bays, may perhaps be considered as already ac- complished, the populations of all places from which the adherents of Juarez are absent having spontaneously recognised the French à intervention.
LONDON WOOL REPORT, NOVEMBER 24, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
LONDON WOOL REPORT, NOVEMBER 24, 1863. The last sale of the year commenced on the 5th of November, the arrivals to that date con- sisting of-Australian, 10,207 bales; Port Phillip, 4292 bales ; Van Diemen's Land 1362 bales j Adelaide, 608 bales; New Zealand, 14,953 bales ; Swan Eiver, 970 bales ; Cape, 28,265 bales ; total, 60,657 bales ; which, with about 8000 bales held over in first and second hands during the year, gave us a stock for the hammer of about 69,000 hides. The opening sale was attended by a very largo number of home und a fair proportion of foreign buyers, biddings were animated, and an avcrago advance was established of ¿d. to l£d. per lb. j the latter being paid chiefly ou stapled wools and middle Sydney wliich ruled moderate at the July-August series. This advance waa more than maintained for a few days, 2d. and even 2Jd. being paid for wools ranging from Is. 7d. to Is. lOd. last July.

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
AMERICA. The siege of Charleston has now lasted 120 days, and seems likely to go on for as long as that of Troy, as far as Dahlgren, Gillmore, and bombardments are concerned. The value of success now would be very small if Burnside were routed and Grant forced to retire for pro- visions. Our latest advices from New York are down to November 10. It appears that on the morning of the 7th of November, General Meade s army, after a J £ period of long inaction, suddenly left its position near Warrenton, and advanced to the Bappa bannock. The right wing, under General Sedgwick, and the left, commanded by General French, consisting of two army corps each, reached Bappahannock Station and Kelly's Ford nearly simultaneously during the after noon, and immediately attacked the Confede- rates guarding those points. The Confederates, who occupied the earthworks constructed by the Federals during theil" occupation of the north bank of the river, and who, so far as can be gathered from the account...
European Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
European Intelligence. WE give the following extracts from the Borne News : The Speech of the Emperor ,of the French upon opening the Chambers on the ominous 5th of November has given almost exclusive occupation to all circles of politicians. The utmost perplexity prevails as to whether the speech means peace or war. In France it is generally accepted as meaning peace. In England, where we are prudent and phlegmatic, the belief is that the path chalked out by His Majesty as the shortest route to the establish- ment of a European Happy Family will inevit- ably end in a universal conflagration. , ", The Emperor dismisses his domestic subjects first; and, after congratulating France upon her increasing prosperity, he proceeds to the knotty questions that threaten the repose of the world. Polandjis the most prominent; but there are others that also demand adjustment, including, probably, Hungary and Venetia, and perhaps, Servia and the Rhine, although we are not so romantic as to suppos...
THE SANITARIUM QUESTION AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
THE SANITAEDJM QUESTION AGAIN. THE following interesting letter from DE. EENNIE has been kindly forwarded to us for publication by ME. LIONEL SAMSON, the gentleman to whom it was addressed. The subject is of the utmost importance to this Colony, and though we unfor- tunately cannot participate in the hopes of the writer, we think every effort should be made by the friends of the Colony, both here and at home, to second the disinterested exertions of so staunch an ally. We cannot fancy the glaring aridity of Fremantle offering any attrac- tions to the bilious invalid, but there are, perhaps, more inviting spots to the Southward, where he may inhale the health-bearing breezes without risk of injuring his system by the absorption of any other luxury. As Dr. Eennie's evidence before the Committee of inquiry is highly interesting to those who have faith in the future of this Colony as a Sanitarium, we hope next week to lay some portions of it before our readers : Presidency General Hospi...
DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
DENMARK. The sudden death of the King of Denmark, at a moment so eventful in the history of the Danish monarchy, is a serious loss not only to his own people, but to Europe at large. This melancholy event was wholly unexpected,' and the bulletin, dated 14th November, which first announced his illness, was almost immediately followed by the news of his demise, which occurred on the 15th November, from erysi- pelas.
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN CHURCH OF ENGLAND MAGAZINE [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
THE WESTBEN AUSTRALIAN CHÜECH OF ENGLAND MAGAZINE For the present month contains some in- teresting matter. The well-written story of "Mark's Sacrifice" is happily con- cluded by his second sacrifice on the altar of matrimony. A brief sketch is given of the life of England's famous Church hero, John Wicliffe ; and there is also an anecdote of Archbishop Usher's interview with Cromwell. There is something so poetically beautiful associated with the " Cedars of Lebanon"-to say nothing of their almost sacred character-that we always love to hear about them ; and two interesting accounts of their present state have been contributed to this month's Magazine. "Clericus" gives a third letter upon the advantages of Episcopacy to the Church ; and in addition to articles of more less interest, two or three very good pieces of poetry are contributed. We must not forget to add that they who nightly devote erectos ad sidera vultvs who practise star-gazing as a study will be happy to learn that P...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE SULTAN'S BEAR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
eux (ßjpttttg fM. a Tales for Country Headers. v -?- c THE SULTAN'S BEAR. r THE Sultan being one day rather out of sorts, sent for" his Jewish physi- cian, a man very eminent for skill in his r profession, and not less distinguished by 1 his love of his own nation, and his des- perate enmity to the Christians. Pinding b that his patient had not really much the b matter with him, and thinking a little h gossip would not only be more agreeable, but more likely to do him good than any medicine which could bo prescribed, the doctor began to discourse on the very familiar topic of his highness's favourite bear, which was lying at his feet, and whose virtues and abilities he was never tired of extolling. " You would wonder," said the sultan, "not only at the natural sagacity of the creature, and the tact that he shows in a thousand different ways, but at the amount of knowledge he has collected, and the logical correctness with which he uses it. He is really a very knowing beast." The Jew...
THE SLAVE TRADE IN THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
THE SLAVE TRADE IN THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. The profitable nature of the infamous practico of kidnapping the natives of the South Sea Islands and carrying them as slaves to Peru has at length proved sufficiently tempting to induce a British subject, an Irishman, sailing from an Australian colony-Tasmania-to dare the dangers associated with the traffic. This, we learn from a seaman, John Turner, now in this port, who, along with eight others, left the vessel in which he shipped on the understanding that she was going on a whaling voyage, as soon as they learned that it was the purpose of the captain to take part in the Peruvian slave trade. Turner, who is employed on board the schooner Urania, now lying at the Australian Wharf, gives us (Age) the following narra- tive. " On the 24th of February last he joined tho brig Grecian, of Hobart Town, Captain T. J. McGrath, to go on a whaling voyage, and to be discharged at New Zealand, or the first Aus- tralian colony at which the vessel might...

THE SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
THE SCHLESWIG-HOLSTELN QUESTION, i Europe is threatened with a new war of the succession. The death of the late King of Denmark has opened up a fresh and far more ominous phase of the eternal Schleswig-Holstein question. Yesterday the quarrel was between Denmark and Germany about the national rights of the Schleswig and Holstein peoples ; to-day it has assumed the clearer, sharper, and menacing aspect of a struggle for the succession. It appears that Duke Earnest of Saxe-Coburg has announced his intention to move the Fe- deral Diet to set aside the claims of King Christian to Schleswig and Holstein, to declare him a pretender, to set up the legitimate can- didate, the present Piince of Augustenburg, and, if needful, to support the cause of the lat- ter by force of ai'ms. King Christian, therefore, may soon have either to make up his mind to surrender the best parts of his dominions, orto battle for them as well as he can. And this although he becomes King of Denmark* and ruler of th...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 January 1864
§\z ê$cn Catamn. To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES: SIB,-Although I have not the pleasure' of your personal acquaintance, I take leave to address to you a few remarks on the condition of Pensioners and their families in this Colony. In the execution of my dutieB I have frequent opportunities of coming in contact with this class. I have myself no prospect of being able to influence the public mind, but if you thought proper to devote your eloquent pen to the ad- vocacy of the cause I am pleading, I have no doubtbutsome good might crownyourexertions. A Pensioner who is struck off the Local Force, and drifted into the world with his wife and children, is a wretched being. The chance of finding employment, or work, is a poor one. In most cases, he has not much ability for any. A scanty pension is his only resource for the support of his family and himself. Strange .to say, poverty fails to- make him a sober man ; his few shillings are often squandered in drink. The wife, if she is not a ...

hü %mtxuliu tó¿8. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONTH. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 1864. AFTER a considerable delay (for which we apologize to the writer) we publish an interesting and feeling letter on the sub- ject of the Military Pensioners imported into this Colony under false hopes. For this, we believe, is the precise state of the case. The unfortunate men are per- mitted to believe that, by volunteering to emigrate to this Colony as convict guards, they are coming to aland flowing with milk and honey, where their pros- pects will- be greatly ameliorated, and where their shilling a day will prove as prolific as the solitary coin in the purse of Fortunatus. We say they-are "per- mitted to believe" all this, because, until they arrive here, they are never told the contrary. In a new country they natu- rally expect to find a 'wider field for em- ployment than at home, with less demand upon their muscular tissues. For veterans naturally associate some degree of rest with the idea...
