The Open Column. THE PENSIONERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 February 1864

©frí êpn Gulum* 8 THE PENSIONERS. i -. a To THE EDITOR OP THE W. A. THIES. SIR,-In to-day's Inquirer a writer who assumes, with little propriety, the name of " Volunteer," takes up the cud- gels against the Pensioners. The object of his letter is to prevent any inquiry into their case, ana to deny them the sympathy of the public and the aid of the Government. With this view, he lays his rod most unfeelingly upon your back, Mr. Editor, whom he politely terms a "fool,"-inferring that he is himself quite the reverse: which, it is evident, he fully believes. But as he wilfully mis-states every sentence of your article that he touches upon, is he not worse than a ?' fool ?" I fear so. What you said was, that these men, as a general rule, complain that they are worse off here than if they had been left at home ; and you ask if something could not be done forthembyreturning to the system of military villages, and by giving them land to cultivate and occupy? The land may be bad out here, bu...

They took a house at Eastbourne, for the season, but'the defences which tlte doctors of that place made for its unhealthiness\ convinced MR. and MRS. NAGGLETON that a locality requiring so much advocacy had better be left to Hie sanatory autlwriiies. So tiley came on to Brighton. They liave just come in to hinch. MR. NAGGLETON-I don't seem to want any lunch. MRS. NAGGLETON-It would be strange if you did, after eating all those apples and sweetmeats and rubbish. MR. N.-I had only one apple, and one pear drop, which the children made me take. MRS. N.-Made you take! And you call yourself the head of a family, and pretend to guide and direct the rest. If you could not help indulging your own school-boy tastes, you might have some consideration for the children, and not stuff them with trash and spoil their dinners. MR. N.-Why, you bought the apples you...

Wltit- %mtxüm\K ®im*$. ' DI80ITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. ' g Hear and le JUST. THUESDAT, FEBRUARY 4, 1864. ii WE are happily acquiring a "second nature" which enables us to live cheer- fully under circumstances calculated to affect the equanimity of tyros. It is doubtful whether even the salamander would be altogether contented with a residence among live embers-until he got used to the situation. It is our fate to find ourselves continually floating in an element which is not generally con- sidered desirable in a climate where the thermometer ranges between 90° and 119 °, and where cold water, when at- tainable, is infinitely preferred to hot In hot-water, however, it seems to be our destiny to dwell. So familiarized are we now with the temperature at boiling point, that to feel ourselves out of hot- water would be as novel a sensation as it would be to many of our friends to feel themselves out of debt. When we are not in hot-water with the Government for some line of policy at varianc...

HUNGARIAN FAMINE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 February 1864

HUNGARIAN FAMINE. Hungary in ordinary seasons is so abundantly blessed with lertility that she can afford to supply a large portion of superfluity; but owing to a combination of calamities, as sudden as they are overwhelming, has been this year afflicted with a famine ranging over 99 parts of her territory. For the last two years there has occurred a season of dryness which has not only materially affected the production of all cereal produce and the pasture for cattle, but has also induced to an alarming extent a kind of epizotic-a disease which, more or less, is prevalent in the provinces of the Danube. In the spring of 1862 the river overflowed its banks to the breadth of 100 miles, causing the destruction of property to the extent of millions, and preventing at the same time the ordinary cultivation of the lands so inundated. The scarcity of agricultural products which was so induced in 1862 has been this year augmented to its present frightful consequences by a dry season, whic...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE SULTAN'S BEAR. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 February 1864

OUR CHIMNEY BOOK. Tales for Country Readers. THE SULTAN'S BEAR. (Concluded.) AS he said this, the deacon saw the twinkle of the Jew's eye over the sul- tan's shoulder; it was only a moment, and nobody but Titus himself knew, that he had seen it at all, so intently did he seem to be occupied in comforting and en- couraging-perhaps we should say ex- citing, his pupil. The beal', however, being disappointed line after line and page after page, and only stimulated and irritated by the scent, and the slight taste which he could get by thrusting the tip of his tongue through his muzzle, began to growl most awfully, as he still went on mechanically, line after line, and turned the leaves with increased rapidity and vehemence. This continued for some time, until the pupil was evidently getting into a passion and the tutor was growing rather nervous, when the sultan showed a disposition to speak, which Titus thankfully interpreted as an in- timation that the experiment had been carried far e...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 February 1864

Miscellaneous Extracts. Every steamer that leaves Queenstown is crowded with emigrants, and hundreds of families are preparing to leave the country. A Sligo journal contains the following :-" Bemit tances from those who hare been some time in the States arrive by every mail, and thus a continuous drain takes place in our population. The number of persons leaving for Australia and other British settlements becomes less every day, which can only be accounted for by the immense absorption of labour in America, caused by the large number of men under arms who have been taken from the farm and the workshop, and whose places remain to be filled up by Irish emigrants. We can see no remedy for the emigration of the Irish people so long as the present high scale of wages exists in America. At present a few months' employ- ment suffices to furnish the emigrant with funds, which are at once devoted to paying the passage of relatives and friends remaining in Ireland. Thus the war in America mus...

%\t ê$txt Cxrtaim POLICE INSPECTION. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. THIES. SIR,-On the night of the 21st of December, at about half past ten, I left home intending to proceed to Fremantle and Champion Bay. When I had got as far as Mrs. Cousens' store, a policeman stopped me and asked me where I was going? I told him. He then asked me my name, and if I was free ? I told him my name, and also told him who my father was, and as he is well known, I believe the policeman knew him. I had a bag of clothes with me, and he asked me what I had there? I told bim. He then asked to let him see them. I said I would rather not, as I had answered all his questions, but if he wished it, I would go to the Station, or to Sergeant Snook, to whom I was well known. He said he should do nothing of the kind, but should look at them there. I asked him what right he had to search a free man ? He asked me why he should not search me as well as any one else ? At that, he took my bag and pulled my clothes out, on t...

While the most efficacious and speedy, they are, at the some time, the safest remedy that can be employed ; none need fear to take them, and yet all may hope for relief and cure from their use. The number of TESTIMONIALS from all classes of society, which have been published, prove that their curative qualities are the most remarkable of any medicine of the present day ; and the fact that they have been constantly increasing in sale for more than twenty years, shows that they stand the test of time and experience, and that, wherever they are known, their value is appreciated. They are especially suited to persons sufier ing from Ague, Asthma, Bilious Attacks, Chest Aff...

(to ti$fcmug IM» Tales for Country Readers. THE VELVET PELISSE. [Abridged from Mrs. Opie's Works.] MR. BERESFORD was a merchant engaged in a very extensive busi- ness, and possessed of considerable pro- perty, a great part of which was vested in a large estate in the country, on which ho chiefly resided. Beresford was what is commonly denominated pwse-prmul; and so eager to be honoured on account of his wealth, that he shunned rather than courted the society of men of rank, as he was fond of power and precedence, and did not like to associate with those who had an indisputable claim to that deference of which he himself was desi- rous. But he earnestly wished that his only child and heiress should marry a man of rank ; and being informed that a young baronet of large estates in his neighbourhood, and who was also heir to a barony, was just returned from his travels, and intended to settle at his paternal seat, he was resolved that Julia should have every possible opportunity of show...

Ust %vßtttiliw ®im*s. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, FEBETIARY 11, 1864. 1 ON HORSES; IT will be seen by an extract' from an Indian journal, given in another column, that great anxiety exists in the Bombay Presidency on the subject of horseflesh. Well-bred animals, with good blood and bone combined, are in great request. Cape and Australian horses appear to be but lightly esteemed, the general charac- ter of those imported into Bombay being weedy ; but were such a lot sent thither as were taken to Calcutta in the Dal- housie the other day, they would, without doubt, be gladly welcomed. In this Colony we have unfortunately a large number of horses for which there is no market. Not suited for exportation as living quadrupeds, they should first be boiled down and converted into glue, tallow, leather, salt-beef, and other sub- stances of exportable value. An exten- sive breeder at the Williams River would gladly take 50s. a-head for all his stock, and assuredly h...

Greenough. (From a Correspondent.) COTTON GROWING AT THE GREENOUGH FLATS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 February 1864

Greenough. (From a Correspondent.)       COTTON GROWING AT THE GREENOUGH FLATS. -Those plantations that escaped the ravages of the Grubs and caterpillars appear to thrive most luxuriantly. A plantation at Mr. Wal- deck's Farm, of about 6 acres, could not look finer, although it has not had any cultivation since the seed was sown. At Captain Urqu- hart's Farm, on the Upper Greenough Flat, there are now about 10 acres of Cotton, and although the plants are of a darker green colour than in Mr. Waldeck's field, yet they appear healthy and strong ; a visit to this plantation would well repay the attention of any settler, and although the Brazilian tree-cotton kidney- seed furnished by our Colonial Government ar- rived too late for planting this season, yet at Capt. Urquhart's plantation may be seen grow- ing the various kinds of Sea Island, Egyptian, New Orleans, and the real Peruvian-tree kind. The native man Woongamurra, who was lately rewarded by...
