Victoria District. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 10 March 1864

Victoria District. (From our own Correspondent,) A FEW days ago the Greenough River at Mr. E. Brockman's Farm and the East Branch of the Irwin River com menced to flow-a most unusual circum stance. Since the settlement of the District, the Greenough was never known to flow in summer, and it may be termed a dry river, as it does not always flow in the winter months. The works at the Greenough intended Bridge are commenced, and as the Warder is a Stonemason by trade, and has lately finished in a most creditable manner the Chapman Bridge, every reasonable hope exists that the Greenough Bridge, when completed, will equal if does not surpass it, in the stability of its structure. It is reported (but the report requires confirmation) that a shepherd, named Lewis, in the employ of J.S. Davis, Esq.,   J.P., has been murdered by the natives spearing him, at or near a spring called Kokatea, on one of Mr. Davis' sheep runs. About the latter end of January last a tribe of natives, ...

[ENCLOSURE REFERRED TO.] Downing-street, January, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

[INCLOSUBK BEFBBBBD TO.] Downing-straet, January, 1864. ? | -, Stn,-It has become my duty to convey to you the decision" at which Her Majesty's Go- vernment have arrived with respect to the Be port of the Boyal Commission appointed to en- quire into the operation of the Acts relating to Transportation and Penal Servitude. That Report has received from Her Majesty's Government the full and respectful considera- tion to which the distinguished position, the great ability, and the high character of the Commissioners entitled it. ,Of the general value of recommendations proceeding (almost unanimously) from such a body of public'men, and founded upon a long and laborious enquiry, it is not for me to speak. I have only to deal with those whioh refer to the question of Transportation, and they may be shortly stated as follows : The Commissioners do not advise the estab- lishment of any new Penal Colony. They re- commend that all male convicts who are not disqualified for userai labour in a...

AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

AMERICA. Since our issue of December the change in the situation of the belligerents has been BO slight as-not to require comment or excite conjecture. The news on that occasion came down to December 12, em- bracing the details of the crossing of the Rapidan by the army of Virginia, under General Meade, its advance toward Gen- eral Lee's position in Mine Run Valley, and its re-crossing the Rapidan without molestation on the night of December 2, when it re-occupied its former position, and settled down into winter quarters. In East Tennessee, it may be remem- bered, that Longstreet was obliged to abandon the Biege of Knoxville, and re- treat eastward ; that Bragg had not only been ^driven from his strong position on Lookout Mountain, but had been pursued a distance of nearly 50 miles. However, Bragg's and Longstreet's forces having combined under the command of the latter, they turned and attacked the pur- suing Federals at Bean Station, driving them back, and compelling them to re- ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. The weather continued fine at the Cape, and harvest prospects were good. Provisions were abundant and cheap, and money plentiful. The vineyards pro- mised well, and the orchards were loaded with fruit. The supply of wood was con- siderably greater than in former years in both the western and eastern districts. Freights were rising. Bishop Colenso's trial was concluded on Dec. 16. The presenting clergy ac- cused Bishop Colenso of heresy on nine counts. The suffragan bishops found him guilty on all the nine. The metro- politan agreed in that opinion, and sen- tenced Bishop Colenso to be deprived of ibis see and all his rights of office therein. The defendant not being present to hear the judgement pronounced against him, the metropolitan gave'him until the 4th of March next -to file" in 'London a full, unconditional, and absolute retraction in writing of all the heretical extracts referred to in the r counts ; or otherwise to, the 16th .of April next to file a like ...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

NEW ZEALAND. Matters remain in the same unsatis- factory state. Two attempts to burn down Auckland had been discovered ; the perpetrators were not known. No en- gagement had taken place, but General Cameron was in readiness to commence attacking the Maories. On the 27th of January, ithe British forces began to move from Tani Karamea, which had been their head-quarters for, some time, to* wards the enemy's entrenched positions at Rangiaohia, some twenty miles dis- tant. It was known that there were at least five formidable fortifications erected there, the centre and principal one being called Piko Piko. The troops had ad- vanced within a mile and a half of Piko Piko on the following day, and there en- camped. General Cameron's operations had been retarded by the gunboat Avon, conveying stores, being snagged in the Waikato River, and various other causes. Meantime, he was ^disposing the troops all round the native position, and occu- pying every position commanding the enemy's fortif...

LONDON WOOL REPORT.— [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

LONDON WOOL REPORT. JÁNUABY 25TH.-Our market has ' remained since the sales very quiet, and the demand has been of the most limited description; true, flocks here are in so"£sniall a compass that it would be difficult to find the sorts wanted. For the Continent there has been inquiries for Sydney fleece and scoured wools, including for Belgium some few contracts in low-priced Cape fleece; one large parcel of Cape greasy has changed from first hands^for America, amount- ing to 1000 to 1200 bales. Prices are firm, and a better market looked for next month : but the high rates for money produce great caution, and the possibility of the Denmark affair leading to war likewise has an injurious effect upon, the markets in the North, orders being given out with less freedom.

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE PROUD OLD SQUIRE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

0»r. töHimwa Ufa*. u - Tales for Country Headers. .THE PROUD OLD SQUIRE. ON a beautiful autumn evening, a branch coach from the Birmingham railway stopped at that most ancient inn (known as the 'Tabard,' in the village of JCrumbleton, not far from Warwickshire. This being an extremely unusual occur- rence, the coach was soon surrounded by a crowd of children, who were joined by an accession of gossips as soon as they could hobble up. Perhaps the feeling of curiosity had never been so intensely ex- cited' since the opening of the Stratford station, and the first starting of the cross- road coach which was now in the act of 'dropping' the stranger in the village. The passenger was stared, at without com- punction, and each package of luggage minutely examined as it was handed from the roof of the vehicle to the inn 'doorstep, to find out who could possibly want to stop at Crumbleton ; not above ten strangers having been Been in the place for as many months. The school- mistress, howev...

Arrival of the Overland Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

Arrival of the Overland Mail. THE Mails from England and the Eastern Colonies arrived in Perth last Thursday afternoon. We subjoin the most interesting items of intelligence : THE complications in Europe grow thicker, and thicker, and the aspects which not long since justified the belief that war might be averted, now deepen into a gloom which looks as if peace were no longer possible.. The speck, at first no bigger than a man's hand, is expanding into a cloud in Schleswig Holstein. The first incident in the narrative is the resignation of the Danish ministry, who unanimously refused to take any step towards the abrogation of the com- mon constitution by which Schleswig was to be incorporated in the kingdom of Denmark. In consequence of this measure, his Majesty was obliged to fall back upon the people, and to abandon all intention of yielding that point, notwith- standing that he was counselled to do so by France and England. Prussia and Austria immediately advised the Diet to dema...

ACCOUCHEMENT OF THE PRINCESS OF WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

ACCOUCHEMENT OF THE PRIN- CESS OF WALES. The public was completely taken by surprise on the morning of January 9 by the announcement that the Princess of Wales had given birth to a son. The advent of " the little stranger" appears, indeed, to have been altogether unex- pected, for on the previous day the prin- cess was sharing the amusement of her husband on the ice at Virginia Water for several hours, and only returned to Frog- more with her ladies a few hours before she became a mother. No baby-linen had been prepared, nor was there any doctor in attendance, and the young mother was intrusted entirely to a local practitioner, who was called in on the occasion. The joyful intelligence was received in town late on the night of January 8 by telegram, when information of the event was conveyed to all the min- isters then resident in the metropolis. The bulletin issued at Frogmore was as follows : Frogmore, January, 8. Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales was confined of a prince a...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

.Hist iustralian %\mn. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. r Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, MAECH 17, 1864. Tas English Mail reached Perth about 5.30 p.m. on the 10th of this month. The intelligence received confirms the belief previously entertained among us, that Transportation is to be continued for a time in small drafts of a couple of ships per annum. About 600 convicts, of the worst description are to be annually forwarded to this'Colony. As these men will be employed on public works, they will not interfere with the general em- ployment of free mechanics and artizans. The Princess of Wales was confined on January 8 of a fine prince, who, if weighed in the balances, would have been found of the average ponderosity of princes at the time of birth, but the ladies of the Court objected to the proposal to weigh him, on account of its being unlucky to do so. There is, happily, every prospect of the Country being well-stocked with members of the Royal Family, some of whom will probably be reduc...

THE CHRISTIAN BROTHERS' SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 17 March 1864

THE CHRISTIAN BROTHERS' SCHOOL. WE notice the recent arrival, from Sin- gapore, of two of the Members of the Order known as the " Christian Brothers," whose special object is the education of youth. Since the establishment of their Order, some time in the latter part of the 17th century by the Venerable D. B. SALLE, it has continued to flourish, and Christian Brothers are now to be found in every part of the world, exercising their high vocation. To the Roman Catholics of this Colony their advent will be hailed with peculiar pleasure, as they have now an oppportunity, never before offered to them, of having imparted to their children a sound and useful secular education, while at the same time their religious and moral culture will receive .special attention. The Chris- tian Brothers' School will not be exclu- sively confined to Roman Catholics, but will be open to children of other denomi- nations; and whilst their religious opinions are not interfered with, every attention will be...

At length, though seriously embarrassed, he ex- plained the mistake, and owned that the good fortune of having rescued the young lady was his. The parents overwhelmed him with gratitude, and at that moment one of those sincere friendships was begun between Sir James Spindler and young Kennedy which are not soon or easily ' ended. It' was now announced that Miss Spindler was ready to be re- moved into the carriage, which had been driven up to the house ; thanks to the knowing foresight of Penthouse, who had set all the village idlers to work to clear the drive. A short time after the invalid was on her way to her own home, all ap- pearance of bustle and excitement sub- sided at Grumble Hall, both within and without; the drawing-room windows were closed, and the recluse returned to his favourite studies.

THE GOLD QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

THE GOLD QUESTION. The slowness with which the plainest and most obvious principles of political economy become popularised and gene- rally understood, constitutes one of the most remarkable 'of social phenomena.: It was far back 'in the last century that Adam Smith promulgated the principles of free trade ; it was far into the present century that the doctrine of protection to native industry, 'that is,'restriction, à prohibitory, tariff-in one word monopoly -was the doctrine generally held. It is only quite of late years that even the more educated1 portion of society in the most civilised countries, have come to recognise the simple truism, that if pro- duction be suffered to take place where and how it can, cheapest, best, and in greatest plenty,, and. to be distributed freely, without any artificial impediments or restraints, human wants will be best satisfied, and human'well-being best pro- moted. ' The gold question is another illustration in point.. Recently some of the «rud...

Kowitch (who accompanied '?axe Le froy's party), together with another aboriginal, started from York on the morning of the, 15th March. They were accompanied for several miles by Mr. J. H. Monger, by whom, con- jointly with Mr. E. D. Hardey, this expedition has been formed. It is their intention to pene- trate to the furthest point of Mr. Lefroy's track, and to form there a depot, for the gen* eral exploring of the country. They have pro- visions for seventy days, and; they ' are all san guine.of success. It is to be hoped the expe- dition will make discoveries worthy of the en* terrorise displayed by this small band of settlers. The three convicts lately captured ürtto York District have been sentenced by the Re- sident Magistrate to 7 years' penal servitude. Oraham, by whom Mr. Quartermaine waa so severely wounded, has not been captured.
