SETTLEMENT AT ADAM BAY. (From the Argus special correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

In selecting Colonel Finniss to head the expedition-a gentle- man of large administrative experience, and who had, as it were, tried his 'pren- tice hand in similar work when the colony of South Australia was founded -the Government and people generally ©f the neighbouring colony conceived that they had got hold of the best man for the new position. It is absolutely painful to me, after having been but the other day a sort of guest of Mr. Finni...

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 24, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

FRroA^y7FE^üÄKYl47l865l OIÎ Tuesday last, the settlers assembled in public meeting decided in the affirma- tive the important question as to whether the time had arrived when they should commence a political existence. The meeting although not a numerous one, was composed of individuals from all parts of the colony, the country element far outnumbering the town, and may therefore be fairly considered as truly re- presenting the community; those who expressed an opinion by voting were not one-third of the number present, but their appreciation of the gravity of the question to be decided, was manifest by the circmstance of fathers and sons and brothers taking opposite views of it, and giving effectual expression to their opin- ions. That some change in the present mode of government was requisite, ap- peared to be recognised by all present, but ...

Summary for the Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

Summary for the Mail. 1 APART from the Public Meeting reported in another column, we have no political movement to report this month; the Governor is enjoying his ease in the cool- ing breezes at Rottnest, and everything has been until this week as quiet and dull as matters appeared to be at home accord- ing to what we heard by the last mail. Here possibly our usual quietude was in- creased by the extreme heat of the weather during the first half of the month, which indisposed all to making any fur- ther exertion either of body or mind than they were absolutely compelled to; fortunately a somewhat cooler atmosphere now prevails, and enables holiday makers to enjoy the amusements offering during this the carnival week in the Metropolis, when the attractions of the Races, Theatre, Bazaar, and Sunday-school Feasts, not to speak of the unusual ex- citement of politics on Tuesday, have drawn many visitors from the country. With the exception of some not too well considered resolutions pa...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The Clarence Packet, sailed on Thursday morning, the 16th Inst: Mr. Padbury's stock were snipped before 8 a.m, and about 9.30, the the Packet got under way. Seldom has the jetty looked as lively as it did on this occasion. Besides the usual number of boatmen and loungers, there were many ladies present Jb° bid farewell and wish " God speed" "to 'the Search Party. Horses were at the same timo being shipped for the Briton, and altogether the jetty presented a scene-the frequent repeti- tion of which we Fremantleites would not at all object to. The Briton left on the evening of the 17th with horses and sandalwood tor Singapore. The Norman on the 20th with part of original Cargo and timber for the Mauritius. The roads are consequently what they have not been for some time, deserted. It must be a source of great congratulation to us to think that with the number of ships of all classes which has lately visited us " seeking," all have taken away go...

Mining Reports. Yanganooka Mine, January 25th 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

Mining Reports. Yanganooka Mine, January 25th 1865. The engine and pit work having been fixed, the operations have been con- ducted with more uniformity, and al- though ore ground is neither in quantity or quality equal to what has been raised, yet this only arises from a very proper decision in putting the men to sinking what for the present may be called the main shaft,*and which the engine and pumps only could effectually enable us to accomplish. The position of the mine indicates much water and the last fort- night has fully proved this, and proves also the wisdom of applying the means to overcome it. The other parts of the mine proceed with the usual regularity ; but owing to these necessary works now in 'hand any large quantity of the very valuable ore previously shipped must not be expected for a few months. I subjoin the Mining Captain's report. I am Sir, Yours respectfully, J. L. HÖBEOCKS, Manager. Engine Shaft.-This shaft is sinking by 6 men since the 10th Inst., lode 14 f...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 24 February 1865

&ßxxt%$attHm. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette S¡ W. A. Times. SIR-With reference to the remarks made by me at the public meeting on- Tuesday, briefly noticed in the Inquirer, I would observe that I meant to say thera are only about a thousand free adult ten-pound householders in the colony. Even this may be an error, but at any rate the number ia very small. I hate elections, and should not like them to occur every " two or three" years. Say once in five years. I am told that it was a monstrous slur on the colony to suppose that "three" out of ten representatives would be liable to Government influence, so as always to insure it a majority where one-third of the members are to be nominated by the Crown. Of course they will not be open to actual bribeiy and corruption, but it will be wonderful if out of ten men three cannot be talked over and made to perceive the »uperiority of the Government view on any ., .question, or will agree with its views without .any talking over....

WHOLESALE SUPPRESSION OF MONASTERIES. (London Review.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 March 1865

WHOLESALE SUPPRESSION OF MONASTERIES. (London Review.) The days of Henry the Eighth seem to be revived with their long tail of monastic sorrows, though the scene is not laid in England, where monks incline to flourish as vigorously as in the~ olden time. To add to the miseries which the Pope is suffering from the Italian Convention, there is now the war waged by the Russian Czar against themonastries and nunneries of Poland, and the bill just presented to the Italian Parliament for the suppression of all similar religious corporations in the kingdom of Italy. In the former case, in pursuance of an Imperial decree, a Rus- sian colonel repaired on the midnight of the 27th of November to each doomed religious house in Warsaw, assembled the monks, and ordered them to get ready to leave by rail next morning for a foreign country. The same was done throughout the kingdom generally, and by two o'clock next day the suppression was complete. These institutions are accused by the Russian Gove...

The latter loaded with timber for South Australia, takes in* passengers here, and will, ere this is in print, be uader weigh again. I am sorry to say that the tide of emigration seems in no way to have abated, but appears as strong as ever. This vessel's passenger accommodation is more than crammed, and her agents have been compelled to refuse applica- tions, a3 the Auction bills say "too numerous to mention." The Messrs. Bateman are also continually receiving requests to lay on the Sea Ripple (now shortly expected from the Mauritius,) for one of the Southern Colonies. At Champion Bay the fever is equally as fierce, and I learn on . indisputable authority that were a ship of four or five huudred tons to go down there, she would not meet with any difficulty in loading with passenger freight. ...

AGRICULTURAL REVIEW OF THE WEEK. The Australasian, February 4. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 March 1865

AGEICULTURAL EEVIEW OF THE WEEK. The Australasian, February 4. The actual change» since last week have been trifling, but the tendency in prices is downward. This must be looked for at the conclusion of a harvest which, though not absolutely an abundant, is yet a good one-especially as ,our farmeia have not, like those of South Australia; their pockets full of money for the sale of last year's crops. The up-country demand for flour is fast diminishing, and as sup- plies from the neighbouring colony are at the ¡same time increasing, somewhat lower rates have been accepted. Oats are now offered more freely, and prices are easier. The supply of hay has not been in excess of the demand this week, and prices are steady. If the weather would but allow of ploughing being generally commenced soon, the supply would continue moderate, and prices would remain as they are j but many more loads could have been sold each week without a further decline. The frequent gatherings of clouds without an...

FROM THE "TIMES." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 March 1865

FROM THE " TIMES." We have opened our columns lately to a somewhat voluminous "correspon- dence on a subject/which is really of importance, and which need not,r we should think, remain in the obscurity which seems at present to surround it. Two very distinct opinions are held on the actual as well as the relative excel- lence of our present breed of horses. There was a time when these islands were believed to produce the best horses in Europe, the superiority of the stock being caused and preserved by importa tiona jfrom^Jl other countries preferring any claim to notice. Injthose days there were no agricultural exhibitions, but their purposes were answered by the national sports of raping and hunting, which created a constant demand, for gosses of iiie highest quality. A good raee-horse was a horse improved .to the utmost, and that improvement was ulti- mately felt in the .breed of horses generally. Such, in fact, is the true object of all training for prizes. The teal advantage lie...
