ARE CONVICTS THE NE PLUS ULTRA? [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

ARE CONVICTS THE NE PLUS ULTRA ? THE Colony owes a debt of gratitude to ME. Boss D. MANGLES, for his able championship of our interests in the Times of 29th December last. Taking for his text the letter of MR. G. W. LEAKS, Crown Solicitor, (published in the Inquirer in October) he proves the hollowness of the selfish clamour raised by the Eastern Colonies against Trans- portation to this Province ; and he con- cludes with some remarks that peculiarly affect our condition at this moment, and. cannot be too often brought forward. The West Australians, he says, "con- sented to receive convicts, submitting "to the evils of such inmates for the " sake of a continuous supply of labour. "But now that the1 virus is inextricably "in their blood (and the stronger thec "view of the justice of the fears of the' "Eastern Colonists, the ,more pestilent "you must admits that virus to be) "England has no right to cut short, "withoutfull compensation, the supply of "labour, in, consideration of whic...

FAILURE OF THE AMERICAN IRONCLADS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

FAILUEB OF THE AMBBICAN IEONCLADS. In the combined operations, at the siege of Charleston, the Navy failed in the part assigned to it, and how complete the failure has been the American public has only just discovered. The truth has long been suspected from the inaction of the fleet of ironclads throughout 'the summer and autumn. It was, of course, fully known to the heads of the Navy Department, but the Government would not avow it, preferring to impute the defeat of the Monitors by the land bat- teries against which they were sent to Admiral Dupont. He was recalled for not having succeeded, and insinuations against his professional skill, or capacity, were repeated in the recent Report of the Secretary of the Congress. The Admiral and the officers under his command naturally resent the implied censure, and appeal to the official returns of the con- dition of the whole fleet after the engage- ment, to prove that any repetition of the attack must have resulted in its total destructi...

Greenough. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

Greenough.     The Quarter Sessions at Geraldton took place on the 2nd instant. One prisoner pleaded Guilty, and was sentenced to three months' imprisonment for an assault. Five prisoners in three other cases for the like offence were tried and found by the Jury Not Quilty. The report of the murder of Lewis by the   natives in the eastern part of this district   proves to be quite correct. Lewis was a shep- herd in the employ of J. .s. Davis, Esq, and   while he was with his flock, the natives sent   one of their dogs among the sheep to scatter   them, so that they might steal some. Lewis required them to recall their dog, and they would not, Lewis then fired at and killed the dog and he was immediately murdered with a spear. This murder has caused the apprehen- sion of the natives who killed Gray and Wal deck's cattle last year, and of those, also, who lately speared Mr. Gray's mare. These me...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1864. THE SANITARIUM QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

Ust .%u%ixümn Wime*. DlSOITE JüSTITIAH, MONITI. Hear and be TOOT. THUBSDAY, MAECH 24, 1864. THE SANITARIUM QUESTION. AT a Meeting of the British Association at Newcastle last autumn, the subject of the health of our "soldiers in India was brought under discussion. Almost all the speakers assigned different causes for the great mortality among the men, but they all agreed that the number of deaths is enormous, and that a ¿regiment a thousand strong loses one hundred men every twenty months, exclusive of those who die in the field! According to the last estimates, the number of English soldiers now serving in India is eighty-three thousand five hundred and twenty-one ; and the Sani- tary Commissioners, in their Report, rate the number of deaths at about six thou- sand yearly. Very many of these men die off quickly, but many linger in the hospitals, and would no doubt be saved by change of climate. A great portion of the mortality is probably owing to the intemperance and the-vicious h...

It appears that some jocose remarks, relative to the sharp shooting of the Pensioner Sentries stationed over the ?aid chain-gang on the evening in ques- tion-wh^n several shots had been fired, at almost point blank distance, without having potted a bird, or apparently ruffled a feather-having reached the ears of the gallant Corps, their mettle was roused, and they one and all mentally resolved to have better luck on the next opportu- nity. On the following morning, an alarm Was given that two prisoners had just escaped ov,er the wall of the Establish- ment.

THE W. A. CHURCH OF ENGLAND MAGAZINE [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 24 March 1864

THE W. A. CHURCH OF ENGLAND MAGAZINE   Of this month contains extracts from the Rev. G. P. Pownall's " Sermon preached at St. Augustine's,'Canterbury," entitled " The Message to Archippus." "Layman," in his second article on "Western Australia and Western Africa," points out some of the many blessings we enjoy here, and properly rebukes our grumbling and discontent, by reminding us that our lot might have been cast in a much worse place. "Aquarius," who is evidently a thirsty soul on temperance principles, suggests the establishment of Drinking Fountains in Perth. The fifth letter on " Episcopacy" brings the subject to a conclusion-the whole forming a concise, comprehensive and luminous essay, proving enough to satisfy, without fatiguing the inquirer. The important subject of " Clerical Meetings," is treated of by "One of the Clergy," and demands the earnest attention of the body to whom it is addressed. In a Country like this, where the Clergy have few opportunities of...

The Open Column. COLONIAL TOBACCO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

©&* >@$n ?almm. COLONIAL TOBACCO. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-The shepherds are prejudiced against home-grown Tobacco, and pro- nounce it to be useless. Their decision is to a certain extent correct ; a quantity of Tobacco, has been pushed into the market which is quite useless, and should bo treated as Mr. Hardey recommended us to treat the late " Land Regulations." It appears to me that the plant should be pruned as carefully as a vine, and allowed to bear only a certain number of leaves, and not left to grow as a sprouting cabbage. These sprouts, which are no more like Tobacco than a half-grown water-melon is like a good-fruit, are Se- parated into two portions ; one is sold as good smoking tobacco, the other as good " sheep-tobacco," < .1 would advise all who have been sup- plied with this fictitious article to return it, and the error will soon be corrected.

It ' appears that this child was Bet down near where the stubble had been burning and contrived to crawl to the blackened spot, for presently -the other children found that its. clothes were burning and gave the alarm> when the mother hastened to the spot, and found heir child sadly burnt about the loins and back. Everything J that could be thought of was done for the relief of the little sufferer, who seemed to be doing well on, Tuesday morning^ but' drooped, and died about. 7 o'clock..

The game was kept up with much spirit, on both sides, until sunset on the first day, when the stumps were drawn, and re-commenced the follow- ing morning at 8 o'clock.

RETURN RIFLE-MATCH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

RETURN RIFLE-MATCH. THE Range on Mount Eliza was the scene of great gaiety on Monday last, when the Return Match between the Metropolitan and Fremantle j Volunteers was fired. The weather was propitious, and a day more adapted for the occasion could not be wished for. Several of the Fremantle people accompanied their champions in the steamer which brought them from that place ; there were also visitors from Guildford ; who with most of the denizens of Perth, made a goodly muster on the ground. The day was observed as a general holiday in Perth, and most of the shops were closed. The firing was very fair on both sides, and the match well contested till its close-which terminated in favour of the Metropolitan Corps, who were victors by twelve points. In the course of the day, Colonel Bruce informed the Volunteers that in September next, being the second anniversary of the for- mation of the Volunteer Movement in Western Australia, it was intended to make arrangements whereby a series ...
