MRS. LIRRIPER'S SERVANTS OF ALL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 March 1864
MRS. LIRRIPER'S SERVANTS OF ALL WORK. The following amusing account is from Mrs. Lirriper's Lodgings, the Christmas number of All the Tear Bound, by Charles Dickens :-" Where they pick the black up is a mystery I cannot solve, as in the case of the willingest girl that ever came into, a house half-starved, poor thing, a girl so willing that I called her Willing Sophy, down upon her knees scrubbing early and late and ever cheerful but always smiling with a black face. And J says to Sophy, 'Now, Sophy, my good girl, have a regular day for your stoves, and keep the width of the Airy between yourself and the blacking, and do not brush your hair with the bottoms of the saucepans, and do not meddle with the snuffs of the candles, and it stands to reason that it can no longer be,' yet there it was and always on her nose, which, turning up, and being broad at the end, seemed to boast of it and caused warning from a steady gentleman and excellent lodger,, with breakfast by the week, but a li...

Extracts from English Papers. &nbsp; CAPTURE OF AN ESCAPED DARTMOOR CONVICT.-In December, 1863, George Ball, who on the 1st -of April, I860, es- caped from Dartmoor Prison, was cap- tured at Woolwich. At the time of his escape he had served between two and three years of a transportation of fifteen years for a burglary committed at Lewes. The names of the two other convicts who escaped with him were John Robinson, undergoing thirty years' (two fifteens) transportation, and Joseph Hampshire, undergoing twenty years' transportation, both of whom were captured a short time after their escape. Ball, after escaping, made his way with his companions to Bridgewater, where they parted. Ball proceeded to Cardiff, and in a few days after sailed for America, where, until within the last few months, he served as captain of a company of Southern gueril- las, but was taken prisoner by the North «nd. sent back to England. Immediately on his return he made his way back to Woolwich, where he...
York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 3 March 1864
York; , Things are looking up at York ; .there are no less than three notices postee^ here by three of our largest Storekeepers,.*»., intimating their wish to purchase Wheat in any quantity up to 30,300 bushelf-Terms Cash on delivery. Now, this augurs well for agriculture, and it is to be hoped is only the commencement of more pros- perous times than our farmers have lately Been. The Police have been actively engaged- for the last few daWin tracking up a private Still, and they have been tolerably Buccesful, as far as appearance 'goes, having seized a large quantity of articles which have evidently been used for distilling purposes. Two men, t.l's., ore already in custody. There is also on investigation being held about a charge of sheep-stealing, brought by Mr. John W. Parker against one of his shep- herds, and Henry Beard, landlord of the York Hotel, both of whom ore now in custody, but it is to be hoped will be able to refute the- charge' successfully. The three runaway convicts ...

How much do you owe-nay! how much do we-how much does Society owe, to the devotion of your incomparable Aunt. II Miss CBUMP-I believe I have done my duty, Mr. Myth ; no more. The boy was left to me fatherless and motherless, and I have endeavoured to do my duty towards him. MB. MYTH-Admirable woman ! Wob- bles, your chivalrous admiration of the Sex is justified in all its enthusiasm. In- stances like this touch the rude heart of man, and make it all tenderness. MB. WOBBLES-Humph ! MB. MYTH-But, My dear Miss Crump, how about our gallant boy's prospects ? Is he yet appointed Viceroy of the Glenelg? Miss CBUMP-They promise me he shall not be forgotten. Every time I see the gentlemen at the offices they assure me his appointment is certain. MB. WOBBLES-That was before I were lubricated. His chance is worth nothing now. S...

.$tet: IMïstaUarc pm*s. DlSCrrE.JuSTITIAM, MONITI. - Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, MAECH IO, 1864. THE' CITY COUNCIL. THEEE may, perhaps, be some truth in the charges .brought by MB. COLE against the City Council : that they are not alto- gether impartial in the distribution of theiraTfavors; and that they are most careful to lay out the public ononey on improvements in which certain Members of the Corporation are immediately in- terested. These are charges usually brought against all Corporate bodies en- trusted with the distribution of public money. The most disinterested and pa- triotic are not exempt from such attacks. The' most^ upright and unselfish are usually, like Aristides and H. L. COLE, the jnosf freely censured by the Citizens, to whose welfare they devote themselves. For it is well known that the late Chair- man of the City Council was as often the subject of invidious attacks as the present one. In short, there is no public cha- racter in a free state but is the object ...
INDIGENT NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
INDIGENT NATIVES. IT will be seen, by reference to another column, that the natives have lately been troublesome at the Greenough. We be- lieve the true reason to be that, during the summer months, from December to March, the Country is much burnt up, and their food runs very short. These unfortunate creatures, who are pro nounced t;oo degraded for Christian j teaching, are stamped by the Legislature; with all the dignity of British subjects. They are entitled to free quarters in our jails, andaré duly hanged inthe presence of the Sheriff, with all the solemnities of the law. Suppose any one were to suggest that, as British subjects, they are entitled to equal rights with other paupers, and should be admitted into our " Home" for the unemployed, or other refuge for the destitute? There would be an outcry and a protest from all the respectable indigent. Those who love to hail the African Savage as a " man and a brother," feel not the same fraternal emotions at the sight of the wilgie...
The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
%\t ê$n êalnmn: TO THE EDITOB OT THE W. A. TlMES. SIB,-In a late number you urged the Government to press for an increase to the Salaries of the Clergy, in accordance with the recommendation* of the Penal Servitude Commissioners. I have heard it said that a Despatch was received some time ago, inquiring whether it was desir- able that the salaries of the Clergy in this Colony should be raised to JS300 a-year. That the Governor referred it to a Committee, and that the Committee (some of whom had lately taken care to feather their own nests comfortably) re- ported there was no occasion for any such insrease ? Is this a fact P Tours truly, PHILO-CLEEICÜS. [Not being in the secrets of Govern- ment-, .we have no means of answering, but we should say the thing is altogether absurd. Probably there was no such despatch, and certainly, no Committee would make such a Report.-E». W. A. Times."]

No challenge was sent to the York cricketers, as my letter to their Secretary (if not destroyed) would show, but simply a friendly invitation, to make up'the amusements of the day for the adults,, as well as juveniles. > ' By inserting the above, you will oblige r Your obedient servant. J. W. BROUN. Avondale, Beverley, March 1,1864. [We are ourselves to blame for having altered the original word from " invited " to "challenged." It appears to be a distinction without a difference, as when an Irishman trails his coat behind him and invites any one to tread upon it, ED. W. A. T."]

WHAT THEY DO IN CENTRAL AFRICA. [From Captain Speke's "Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the Nile."] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
WHAT THEY DO IN CENTRAL A F RI C A. [From Captain Speke's " Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the îiïîe."l ' CAPTAIN SPEKE has now made three expeditions into the heart of Africa, the last being avowedly for the purpose of establishing the truth of his previous assertion, that the Victoria N'yanza Lake, which he discovered on the 30th of July, 1858, was in fact the source of the Nile. The expedition was undertaken at the request of the Royal Geographical Society, and. the sum of ¿82,500 was 'provided by the Government to assist in carrying out this great undertaking, which not only included the discovery ,of the source of the Nile, but the collection of scientific information, that must necessarily be of great value to the whole of Europe. The author selected Zanzibar as the point to start from, thence making a march to Hage, in order to investigate most fully the Victoria Lake. He exercised the precaution of sending on some fifty men, carrying beads and brass wire, under th...

[Continued.'] ADMITTED within its gates, he was conducted to the council-chamber, where M. de Frontenac, surrounded by high dignitaries of the church, and officers both civil and military, sat in state. An imposing audience, thought the young man, when his eyes were unbandaged, and he stood, the bearer of a haughty message, .before that silent and dignified assembly. The stern proud countenance of the im- perious governor, one would have thought, was in itself enough to daunt the courage of any ordinary man 'under such circum- stances ; but the English herald, with a bearing as haughty as that of the aristo- cratic noble he confronted, advanced towards him, and with a stately obeisance, awaited his permission to unfold his errand. Slightly returning the stranger's greeting, the governor said,'in a brief and peremptory manner : ' Read on, sir, and you shall have our answer.' The Englishm...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
To THE EDITOR OF THE W A Times SIR-The very desirable alteration in the practice of causing persons to travel, in some cases, 50 or 100 miles to register the birth of a child, has given general satisfaction. It was a serious tax on the poor man's means, but I doubt if this has been suggested by an official ; and it is &nbsp; matter for regret that arrangements are made at Head Quarters in total ignorance of our necessities in this district. Witness the un-businesslike manner in which the weekly mail to Wanerenooka is con- ducted. It arrives on Saturday evening, and I-who live some distance-must attend there, and either answer my letters on the Sabbath or not at all-the return mail leaving early on Monday-and in- stead of receiving our overland letters as formerly, we have frequently to wait a week before they are dispatched from the Bay. Now all this might have been avoided by a little inquiry. Again, al- though there is nominally a Post-mistress there, yet it is well known ...
THE SANITARIUM QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
THE SANITARIUM QUESTION. SOME of our friends are urging us to get up an immediäte Memorial to the Home Government on this subject. Let us see what news the present Mail brings us. We only knowfromfriends in India that the Hill Country does not afford sufficient change to many of the invalids ; that sea breezes are essential ; but we do not know that the Authorities at Home are even thinking of looking out for a Sani- tarium. ' The footing on which we might place a memorial would be that, if they decide at Home to bring transportation virtually'1 to a close, we hope for some compensation; and that, should it be considered,desirable to find a Sanitarium for the* troops in India, this Colony offers itself as such, and will not only accept of invalids in lieu of convicts, but will pre- sent the Board of Ordinance (or any other Board) with the land that may be required for the purpose-offering also the variety of other advantages previously enumerated. When we learn what is decided about...
THE FORTUNE MINE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
THE FORTUNE MINE. ^ WE are happj to learn that the intelli- gence respecting this mine continues to be of a highly favorable character. The lode in the 40, north-east end, is reported as being eighteen inches wide-two-thirds of which are solid yellow copper ore. On the 29th ult. there were 106 tons of copper ore at the Bay ready for export. More was on the road. Eight' tons of lead were also ready for shipment. The copper ore lying at the mine ready for bagging is said to be of a high' per-centage. As many of our subscribers are shareholders in this mine, we subjoin the last Report of Capt. Pemberthy: '..'", ' [BEPOBT.] Fortune Copper Mine, Champion^ay Feb. 27,1864. .. SIB-:In forwarding you my monthly report of this mine, I beg to say that the lode in the.40, S.W. end, is about 2| feet wide, composed of spar, mundic, lead, and stones of yellow copper ore, but nothing to value. The lode at this point, from present appearances, is very likely to im- prove. The stopes in the back of t...
Beverley. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864
Beverley. This district has been the scene of an out- rage on the person of Mr.-Quartermaine. A t.L, named William Graham, was formerly in the service of Quartermaine, first in the house, and afterwards at his sheep-station 150 miles away. He was subsequently dismissed and went to Fremantle, but lately returned to Beverley and occupied a hut on a piece of land only a few hundred yards from Quartermaine's house. On Wednesday, the 2nd inst, the latter was supposed to have started on a journey to Perth, but unexpectedly returned to his own home the following night at 12 o'clock. Having put up his horse, he tapped at his bed-room window for admittance, but his wife made no response, although the summons was repeated three times. At length he saw the window- curtain moved aside, and at the same moment a pistol was discharged at him from within. The contents, small shot, were lodged in his side. He staggered against the wall, but did not fall. The window was burst open, and a man, whom he...
