CLERICAL LABOUR AND PAY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 February 1864

CLERICAL LABOUR AND PAT. The good and witty Sydney Smith has told us how much physical exertion is required from a -strong muscular clergy- man, possessed of " Forty-parson power," even in an English parish of limited dimensions. But even his vigorous imagi- nation never pictured the extent of Clerical duties in a Colony, where parishes swell out into Counties, where roads are defined by notches on the trees, where jack-boots and buckskins are essential parts of the clerical costume, and where the Reverend equestrian has to ride twenty miles between service and service, performing three of them in the course of a single sabbath, and swallowing his meals in the saddle, as he gallops from duty to duty. However energetic and zealous may be these faithful servants, however cheerfully they devote their per- sons to martyrdom in 'the stirrups, and wear out their constitutions in unaccus- tomed toil, it ill becomes us to sit by in silence, without a murmur of admiration or remonstrance. Wh...

Our Chimney Book. Tales for Country Readers. WOMAN'S FAITH. AN OLD TALE WITH A NEW NAME. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 February 1864

ewe C&imneg fM, Tales for Country Headers. WOMAN'S FAITH.« 'AN OLD TALE WITH A NEW NAME. IT was a bright October evening in the J year 1690, when a group of officers * stood upon the topmost point of Cape 1 Diamond, the lofty citadel of Quebec, clustered round the flag-staff, from whose summit floated proudly the na- tional banner of Prance. The last rays of the setting sun kissed its silken folds as they streamed out upon the breeze, waving defiance to the invaders who threatened to pluck it from the rock on which, nearly a century before, it had been planted by the adventurous Champ lain. Over the beautiful landscape, viewed from the pinnacle of that rock, hung the blue dome^of heaven, pure and cloudless ; while the horizon, burning with gor- geous hues of purple and gold, shed a glory over the scene, such as is never wit- nessed in milder latitudes. The heads of the distant mountains that guard, like giánt-sentinals, the lovely Valley of St Charles, were already crowned w...

CRICKET MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 February 1864

CRICKET MATCH. Beverley having challenged York to play a friendly game at cricket, they met on Thursday last, the 18th instant, near Mr. John Fleay's, where, after some capital sport, the Beverley eleven were declared the victors. There was also a pic-nic party and a Feast for the Bever- ley school-children, so that the neighbourhood was quite enlivened by these amusements. The day was delightful, and all seemed tho- roughly to enjoy themselves. The tempers of a few were ruffled at finding the Magistrates had granted a license to a publican to sell spirits, &c" without consulting the proprietor of the land on which the match was played. This was an oversight. The following is the score of the game : York-1st Innings. F. Parker, 6 J. Brown, . . ... 0 E. Hardey, b Mcintyre. 1 C. Massingham, stumped do.12 S.

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1864. SANITARIUM FOR INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 February 1864

West Australian Times DlSCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be just. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1864. SANITARIUM FOR INDIA. We have never hitherto supposed that there was the smallest chance of this Co- lony being selected as a Sanitarium for invalided Indian officers and soldiers. But it appears that the last four years in India have confirmed the belief enter tertained there at least thirty years pre- viously : that a total change of climate is necessary to re-establish health, and that sea-breezes are absolutely essential. Liver complaints are not amended by the dry land-winds of the Hill country. These facts are again forcing themselves strongly upon the attention of the Home Government. The health of the Indian Army demands the serious consideration of the Council for India, and the question must at length be settled and disposed of: "Whither shall invalid soldiers be sent for the re-establishment of their health?" Unless they returned to England, which is out of the'"question, the m...

MR. LARNACH, [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 February 1864

MR. LARNACH. A gentleman connected with the Eastern Colonies, and favourably known in this, lately, on behalf of himself and several large capitalists in Victoria, made a pro- posal to our local Government, which it appears they have declined to accede to. He proposes to take up, in accordance with our existing Land Regulations, 100,000 acres of kind on the Southern Coast, east of Point Malcolm—an unoc- cupied unexplored territory—on condition of being allowed to take up one million of acres in the neighbourhood within 18 months, and a million more on the North- west coast at the back of the Glenelg, or of Roebuck Bay. He would guarantee that the associated gentlemen will pur chase at least 5,000 acres, within 18 months, at the Government price, and that, with all possible speed, they would send a flock of 2,000 sheep from Point Malcolm to the North-west- Coast near the Glenelg, where they were to select the other million of acres. He requires a lease for 8 years (having abandoned h...

Wtßt &xtßtxüüm ®im*0,: DISCITE ÍUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be-JUST. THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1864. HOW TO DISTIL YOUR OWN BRANDY. NOTWITHSTANDING that we are said to be always grumbling in this Colony, we are often found in that happy state of mind which allows a man to feel thankful for small mercies. The boons bestowed npon us by our Legislature are usually of this sort. A fanfarade of trumpets commonly precedes the donation, and when the gratitude of the Public has been sufficiently called upon, we are directed to fall-to and enjoy ourselves. At this season of the year a large number of the community are ga- thering in the fruit of their vineyards, and trying to make wine. Last year, and for many previous years, the vine grower had complained that his wine would not keep, because he could not afford to "fortify" it with imported brandy,, and he had been long and loudly beseeching the Government to allow him to distil in small quantities for that pur- pose. The Government, for m...

SIB,-A tendency to a revulsion of opinion upon the subject of the Convict Question has lately shown itself among us, and the refusal of several of the set- tlers in the York District to sign the Memorial to the Secretary of State," taken over there the other day, proves that unanimity on this question is no longer to be looked for. That this Colony has derived great benefit from the introducy tion of convicts, I do not for a moment dispute, but the concomitant evils have been very great, and now that their num- ber is to be largely curtailed, and fresh regulations adopted, doing away with that great incentive to good conduct-the conditional pardon-it becomes a question whether it is worth our while, for the sake of two ship-loads in the year of the worst description of prisoners, to forego all the benefits and advantages of a free Colony. The Mother Country has largely ...

A WEDDING AT GOA. (From the Correspondent of an Indian Paper.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 March 1864

A WEDDING AT.GOA. (From the Correspondent of an Indian Paper.) In the category $f things not generally known is to be included Goa. This was the conviction we arrived at after a visit there of some days. Being on duty in the neighbourhood we toole advantage of a short leave to ride across the border, and down to Pangim or New Goa, which is not difficult, the roads being everywhere good in the Portuguese* territoiy. Evidently wo were in luck. The next morning the streets broke out with a crop of plantain leaf arches ; flags waved from windows; martial music floated on the air ; native Dessaia, with armed gillies at their heels, made day hideous with horn and tomtom ; all Fangim was in the street with the air of having something on its mind in short, the Governor General was going to be married. After devoting himself to celibacy, for a tolerably long period, for the good of ¡his, country, he had now for his own good taken a wife, a lady of the age of thirteen. Never having seen a bri...

To TES EDITOB or THE W,. A. TIKES. SIB,-In my letter of last week! stated that I would refer to the system adopted by the Perth City Council in carrying out the provi- sions of the City Improvement Ordinance. I shall now exercise my right as a ratepayer to criticise upon the general management of the Council, as I contend that they are mere clerk» of the public ; for, if men will push themselves into such positions, they must submit to criticism. It will be remembered by most rate- payers that in the year 1858, ander the Town Trust Ordinance, the Committee had arranged, subject to the approval of the Governor, to level the various streets and lines of communi- cation! Plans were drawn and levels taken, and approved of by the then Town Trust, and sanctioned by H. £. Governor Kennedy (those plans may be seen at the office of Public Works), and the first catting was commenced in St. George's Terrace; but in December j 1868, the Perth Town Trust Ordinance was repealed and the City of Pe...

They entered the vestibule ; and D'Es peron had bounded half-way up the broad illuminated staircase, when he paused to look back for his more tardy companion, who was slowly ascending Btep by step, his fine face still bearing the overshadowing trace of his recent emotion.

SANITARIUM vice CONVICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 March 1864

SANITARIUM ««¡¿CONVICTS. -WE are glad to find from the letter in our " Open Column" that one of our most respected Colonists, MR. W. L. BROCK- MAN, is taking the lead in the new move- ment for a Sanitarium. In our article on this subject last week we suggested that, as the Home Government were likely to put a stop to transportation to this Colony, the best compensation they could make us, without injuring any party, would be to send us their invalid soldiers from India. We are glad to see that MR. BROCKMAN agrees with us in thinking that this step may fairly be urged upon the Government, and we are ready to agree with him that the Colo- nists should at once exert themselves in pressing the measure forward. The other Colonies, who consider their interests affected by the transportation system, ought now to join us in petitioning that we may be enabled to do without more convicts by having invalids from India sent in their stead. We have used our humble efforts to induce parties at ho...
