GREENOUGH FLATS. (From another Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 February 1865

GREENOUGH FLATS. (From another Correspondent.) The price of barley at the barn door here is only 2s. 6d. per bushel, and about 3s. 3d. on board the coasters at the Port ; stocks in the farmers' hands are very heavy with but very few purchasers. Wheat here is 5s or 5s. 8d. on board, the demand being very great and every prospect of prices advancing. How is it that the price here is governed by that in South Australia, and that when wheat there is at 6s. 9d. we are compelled to sell here at 5s. 6d. at the Port warehouse door ? The harvest weather was so very damp and cool that the farmer's patience was sorely tried as, in oonse quence, the reaping machines could not reap or thresh properly, and much wheat still stands unreaped. Better crops than those gathered or gathering have never been seen since the Flats were first tilled.

CHAMPION BAT. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 February 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) Geraldton, Jan, 19. The last few days have been characterised by the greatest amount of heat any of our residents remember to have experienced, since the white man first settled down in the district; the thermometer has ranged from 110 to 114 degrees in the shade, and has gone up to 148deg. in the sun. I am sorry to say the throat disease is still preva- lent, one child has sunk under it since my last, and several others, as well as some adults are very bad. I cannot compliment the Govern- ment upon the great progress made in public works; the party at the Police station are almost helpless, being without a team; the Bowes river bridge is at a standstill, and the crossing dangerous for either man or beast,-if the Government wish to stop all transport on this line they will soon succeed, for nothing will be able ,to cross the Bowes in a week or two. The same may be said of the road to the Flats ; the Greenough Bridge will probably be comple...

SYDNEY IN OLD TIMES. (From the Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 February 1865

SYDNEY IN OLD TIMES. (From the Australasian.') hi Genteel society was, in 1833, at a low ebb in Sydney ; not that there were so very few persons who had been accustomed to a polished life, but because there were so few interchanges of the courtesies of gen- teel society, and even at the public places of amusement the principal seats were generally filled with that class of people who may be termed cross-bred-and very cross-bred indeed many of them were. In the Sydney theatre I have my self seen, on a gala night, the ladies (?) in the dress boxes freely drinking gingerbeer " with a stick in it "-that was ginger beer and brandy ; while the gentlemen who attended upon them indulged in language neither chaste or elegant. Nor were these people the dregs of the popu- lation of Sydney. In most cases they aspired to hold the same position in society that cream does on milk, after the latter has teen allowed to remain quiet for a time. Among the husbands of these ladies were many men holding...

THE NATIONALITIES OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. (London Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 February 1865

THE NATIONALITIES OF THE i UNITED KINGDOM. i (London Revieio.) Scotchmen have repeatedly been ac- cused of overweening national egotism, which magnifies all theil* virtues to heroic proportions, blinds them to their defects, and often renders them offensively arro- gant towards other nations. It is impos- sible to be commonly observant of Scotch literature or of the conversation of Scotch- men without discovering that the charge has a broad basis of fact. National ego- tism has certainly reached its most ex- treme form of development north of the Tweed; and, although Englishmen are not seldom unduly self-complacent, and Irishmen sometimes assume more praise than they are entitled to, and Americans are vehement in the assertion of their superiority to the rest of the world in political institutions and physical re- sources, and the vanity of Frenchmen is often excessive, there is nothing to com- pare to the systematic, everlasting, gratui- tous, and dogged asseveration of the true, t...

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, FEBRUARY 3, 1865 WE do not apprehend that at the Public Meeting called for the 21st instant, to take into consideration the subject of Legislation by Representation, there will be much discussion as to the advisability of our endeavouring to free the colony from the present system of government, but rather that the main object of debate will be, how it is to be effected. At the request of several gentlemen, we give the clause in the Imperial Act 13 and 14 Viet. cap. 59, which confers upon the in- habitants of this colony the power to re- quire of the existing Legislature to pass an Act which, we believe, will for the present give a sufficient representation to the people, while it at the same time pre- serves to the crown a certain amount of     influence to keep us from drifting upon   &am...

CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 February 1865

CHAMPION BAY. We have received intelligence to the 2nd instant. The "Tien Tsin" arrived there at 1 p.m. on Sunday, the 29th January, and after taking on board Mr. Phelps and his horses, sailed for Camden Harbor on 1st February, with a strong north wind against her ; she was very much crowded, there being scarcely room to move about her deck. This district is now without a surveyor, but as the Government apparently think we have no need of one, as we never buy any land or otherwise contribute to the revenue, of course we must do as we have done before-" grin and bear it," but it is an- other inducement to hasten the time when the producer of means shall have a voice in spend- ing them. The " Hastings" will not get away before Saturday, the 4th inst., she will take in here for Boebuck Bay 2300 sheep, 6 horses, 6 cows, and 1 bull ; the sheep are a very fine lot from the flocks of Mr. T. Burges, and worth at least 5s. per head more than those shipped at Fre- mantle ; the cattle are from...

The subject embraced a great many con- siderations,-it was for the. meeting to suggest whsi would be mest likely t...

ROEBUCK BAY ASSOCIATION. The first Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders of this Association was held on Monday last, the Hon. P. P. Barlee, Esq. in the Chair.

Arrival of the Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 10 February 1865

Arrival of the Mail. The European and Indian Mails ar- rived in Perth yesterday evening, shortly before 9 o'clock. There is no news of any importance to use the words of the Home News, " everything is perfectly stupid." Parliament was to meet either on the 7th or 9th February. The Fitzroy sailed for this on the 7th December. On the Continent the perfect quietude also seems to prevail. A report was preva- lent that the French evacuation of Eome would commence almost with the new year. The only intelligence from America of much interest js that of the Federal General Sherman's expedition into Georgia, which is represented by the Confederates tobe marked by desolation; some fighting had taken place in which the latter claim the victory, but the ac- counts are very conflicting. But little had occurred before Peters- burg, and less in the Shenandoah valley. The President's address to Congress was very short, its only noticeable feature being a recommendation to pass a mea- sure for aboli...
