AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

AMEEICA. The interest of the news from America since the date of our last issue has been divided between Hood's movements in Tennessee and Sherman's expedition into Gaorgia. The latter fact was for some time doubtful, but it has since been con- firmed. General Sherman issued at Kingston, Georgia, on November 9, orders for his march, announcing that the army (said to comprise 50,000 men, including 8,000 cavalry), would move in two wings, by four roads when practicable, the right wing, under Howard, composed of the 15th and 17th Corps, and the left, under Slocum, comprising the 14th and 20th Corps. There was to be no general train of supplies, and ammunition waggons and ambulances were to be distributed among the different regiments. Foraging pasties were to be vigorously employed in all directions. The troops were forbidden to enter private dwellings, but could gather supplies and drive in stock freely. Corps commanders were instructed to destroy mills, houses cotton gins, and other ...

VICTORIA. (From the Argus Summary.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

lo VICTORIA. t (From the Argus Summary.) The announcement that the home | o Government had at length acceded to the S wishes of the free colonists ot Eastern Australia, by consenting to the discon- tinuance of transportation to our shores, was received, we neod hardly say, with unqualified satisfaction in Victoria. The despatch of Mr. Cardwell has been characterized as a dignified and not un- graceful abandonment of a power which could no longer be decorously exercised ; and though exception may fairly be taken to some of the reasons assigned by the Colonial Secretary, as those which have induced the Imperial Government to per- form this act ox justice, we are coûtent to accept a decision which is creditable to tliern and gratifying to us without further discussion or recrimination. After striv- ing for twenty years to rid this continent of the taint of convictism, we can afford, in the hour of victory, to disregard the official sophistry which is intended to cover the irritation pr...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

SI To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sf W. A. Times. re SIR,-I am desirous of calling public attention to an act of unexampled honesty on the part of a Probation Prisoner at the Toodyay Depot, which I do not hesitate to say redounds to his honor in the highest degree, and of which, during a residence of upwards of 20 years in this colony, I have never met the parallel. On Saturday last an old and highly respected inhabitant of this town, just retiring from pub- lic life, received the sum of ¿8350 in notes of the West Australian Bank from the purchasers of his business, (which notes I have ascertained were forwarded to Newcastle on the eaine day per mail). The gentleman in question upon .ska». - -r v*....jL . «astefa&ft^j the receipt of the notes handed them to his wife with directions to lock them up in his cash' box, but (it appears) the lady instead of adopt« ing this precautionary measure put them into her pocket, arid shortly afterwards (having oc- casion to go to the P...

FREE LEGISLATION! To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

FREE LEGISLATION! 1 _ \ To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-It is natural that we should all be de- sirous of legislating for ourselves, but it is not likely that we should become possessed of any important good without having to pay for it. Before therefore we wildly beseech the Home Government for leave to elect our own rulers, let us beware lest we place ourselves in the position of the Frogs who asked for a King. The Home Government will no doubt be happy to accede to oui* request, provided we comply with the terms of the Act, 13 and 14 Viet. c. 59, and " make Provision for charging "upon the Revenues of the Colony all such "part of the expences of the civil establishment " thereof as may have been previously defrayed "by Parliamentary Grants." In short, we must provide " for permanently granting to Her " Majesty her heirs, &c, a yearly sum not less "in amount than the sum which may have " been lastly before the making of such law, " &c, grant...

THE COMET. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

THE COMET. The Comet, which, during the early part of the month was rendered invisible by the moon- light, is now again a conspicuous object in the southern heavens. In its movements it seems to be quite as erratic as comets in general. As seen by us, it has ascended from near the horizon into the higher heavens, almost in a perpendicular direction, and tau foremost. Its position as determined roughly from the known position of stars near its path, may be thus stated. Jan. 30ch right ascension (or Longi- tude) 21 hours 56 minutes, declination, (or Latitude) south, 47 Degrees. Feb. löba. right ascension 23 hours, 25 minutes ; declination south 57 Degrees. We notice that a telegram from Adelaide to Melbourne of January 24, reports :-"Mr Baggage, the explorer, considers that the comet is the same as that which appeared in 1843, being the most remarkable one seen during the past century. The one which was seen in 1843 was foretold by Sir John Herschel as returnable in twenty-one and. th...

THE HOME NEWS' CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

THE HOME NEWS* CHARADE. T< We extract from the " Temple" correspondent of the Home Newa of Dec. 26, 1864, a paragraph setting forth a charade attributed to the pen of Lord Macaulay ; and we submit to our readers the subjoined solutions. The writer in the Home News says, " It is full of pitfalls and traps, and only those who do not fasten upon the first meaning of such words as ' singular/ ' sea,' and ' sound,' will have a chance of finding out the answer. You must adopt the non-natural style of interpretation." The following is the Cha- rade : " Take away my last, and plural I appear, lake away my first, and singular I become : Take away my first and last, and, strange to say, That although nothing remains, something is left. What is my first ? A soundiug sea. What i-- my hat ? A flowing river Through whose depths I calmly glide along, Parent of sweetest sound, myself for ever mute." FIKST ANSWER.

BANTINGISM. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

BANTINGISM. Amongst the various discussions which have taken place with regard to the treatment for corpulence, which is at pre- sent so much in vogue, there is none, so far as we have observed, which deals thoroughly with the established facts. On the one side we have the statement, supported by very numerous observa- tions, that the scheme of diet recom- mended by Mr. Banting actually does effect a very remarkable reduction of corpulence in the great majority of instances; on the other hand, we hear serious remonstrances from influential quarters on the occasional ill effects of the application of this mode of treatment. A recent communication from Mr. Bant- ing calls attention to a fact which appears to us of great importance. That gentle- man has observed, on three several occa- sions, that the consumption of no more than five ounces of loaf sugar, spread over the diet of a week has sufficed to increase his bodily weight by more than a pound-an increase winch must certainly be a...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

AMERICA. Our advices from New York are to the morning of December 14. The Rich- mond papers of the preceding day re- port that Sherman was near Savannah probably not five miles distant. It was doubtful if he would make an attack or advance to the coast south-east of the city. He had not opened communication with the coast. Other despatches re- port Sherman in line of battle, confronted by a large Confederate force. There was a doubtful report that Sherman has had a successful engagement at Blooming- dale, 15 miles from Savannah. Federal accounts state that the land and naval forces under Dahlgren and Foster proceeded from Beaufort on December 6, up Broad River, where they landed their forces and destroyed Pocataligo Bridge, afterwards entrenching themselves at the latter point. It was also reported that Foster had cut the Charleston and Savannah Railway, near Pocataligo, and driven the Confederates from their entrenched position. The House of Representatives have passed a resolution...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The New Perseverance and the Gem cleared out on the 11th ; the former with timber for Batavia, and the latter with a similar cargo for South Australia ; the New Perseverance will call in at Champion Bay for nour also. The Nile for the Vasse to load with timber, cleared out yesterday afternoon. Watson and Povats carrying on business in High Street as Butchers, were on Saturday last arrested on a charge of cattie-steaiing, and on Tuesday, fully committed for uial by the Resident. Their case is one well exemplifying how inherent crime is in some men, and how hard it is " to reform." Watson was formerly convicted for the same offence tit Champion hay, and received a sentence of penal servitude, which expired but a month or so since. Povats, though never beibre mixed up in cattle-s bealing, is an old offender, and still a ticket-of-leave holder. With every inducement to honesty and uprightness, well supported and doing a good trade, it seems the i...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 17 February 1865

MISCELLANEOUS. A woman of the Paris demi-monde has adopted the lantern of Diogenes for her device, and had it painted on the panels of her carriage. The inscription, in very small letter, is " Hominem qusero." Lord Palmerston has been making one of those cherry effusions at Romsey which delight every one merely from then* bonhoimnie. He did not say any- thing to speak of-which was not neces- sary, and perhaps not possible. But he expressed once more those hearty sort of feelings about the English dystany, the English agriculture, and the English press, which, when they flow from Lord Palmerston, cheer people just as one Í3 cheered alter an absence to find the river running in its old place, or the old tree tos&ing its branches in the old way. On December 8, Clifton Suspension bridge, which stretches across the Avon, and connects Somersetshire with Glou- cestershire, was formally opened. Its construction was contemplated 100 years, and it was commenced upwards of 30 years ago...
