Our Back Parlour. No. XXI. [Present—MR. MYTH, MISS CRUMP, and MR. SPROUTS.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

®M §a*k. fwtar. No. XXI. [Present-'M.-R. MYTH, MISS CBUHP, and MB. SPEOUTS.] , Miss CBUMÇ-Mr. Myth, I entreat the aid of y our powerful influence over this rebellious boy, to prevent his committing an act of insanity and suicide. ME. MYTH-I beg, Sprouts, you will not commit suicide on these premises. A kind of stigma invariably follows such an event. Wherever such an incident occurs, there is a vulgar idea that the place is haunted ever after. Nothing, per- haps, but a genuine spectre could frighten our Imps, but the Directors and Editors might sustain a nervous shock, and a tumble down the Lion's Staircase on a dark night might produce terrible results. SPBOUTS (peevishly)-I am not going to commit suicide. My Aunt is so foolish, and makes so much fuss about nothing. Surely a man may ride a race without breaking his neck ? MB. MYTH (horror-stricken)-A what? -ride a what ? SPBOUTS (with indignation, tempered with dignity)-I think I spoke plainly, Sir. I said " ride a, race." MB. MYTH...

A MORMON ELDER. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

A MORMON ELDER. "I was in Waterloo, Illinois, when first I heard of the ' Latter-Day Saints' at Nauvoo, and I never had an hour's peace until I joined them, and now seo now well I'm fixed! I have no servants -my wives do all that, and everything goes on smoothly and easily, like wheels on a clock. I was married to Margaret, my first, twenty years before I became a saint. When I went' to Nauvoo she began to get weak, and I took Lizzie to wife, in order^to assist in the household. She was young, it is true, but then that was all the better, becauseshecould work. I had offspring by her. She and Mar- garet began to quarrel; so when we' came to Utah a few years ago, I met with Mina, a German lass, and took her to wife. She has proved a capital work girl and assisted matters wonderfully in an hotel and boarding house which I then started." I ventured to remark that he might have been contented with this number of wives, and stopped, at Nina. But he did not heed my interrup- tion. " Going ...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. THE TEST OF ABSENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

Tales for Country Readers. -? THE TEST OF ABSENCE. EVERY town and city has its prome- nade, where the inhabitants or visitors make it ' their custom of an after- noon' to lounge. This is either specially provided, as in continental cities, by public gardens and esplanades, or else the people choose one of the streets wherein to make their daily perambulations. Regent^ Street in London, Sackville Street in Dublin, and Princes Street in Edin- burgh, have been selected by the re- spective inhabitants for this purpose. It is in the last of these that the first scene of the little drama we are about to de- scribe is laid. One sunny afternoon in 183-, Princes Street was unusually crowded. Never, perhaps, was there a more brilliant dis- play of spring fashions than adorned the lair promenaders, who made the street gay with their presence. Here a mother was sedately chaperoning her fair daughters, glancing now and then to either side, well satisfied with the un- usually elegant appearance o...

Uzt Qmtxümti ©im>$. DISCITE JUSTITIAR MONITI. 'Hear and be JUST. , THURSDAY, MAECH 31, 1864. WITH the present number this 'Journal completes the first half-year of its exist- ence. None but those who are intimately acquainted with the circumstances of tins Colony can fully understand the dif- ficulties with which the Journalist has to contend. In England, when a new periodical is put forth, it is designed to meet the views of some particular class. If intended for literary or scientific readers, it is filled with matter likely to prove thev most interesting to such'; if a political paper, it is addressed to conser- vatives or liberals according to the tone of%its subscribers; if its purpose be to amuse the million, it is filled with tales and facetiae ; in short, the conductors of of an English periodical know well the taste and tone of mind they are expected to gratify, and all they have to do is to write up to that standard. Here, on the other hand, there is no one class suffi-...

THE SANITARIUM MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

THE SANITARIUM MEMORIAL. WE have taken up the Sanitarium Ques- tion, but we do not pretend to the honour of having originated it. It has been pressed upon us by gentlemen who have advocated it for many years past. We take it up because in our opinion, after the determination to which the Home Government has arrived on the subject of Transportation, the Colony is chal- lenged to give utterance to its sentiments upon that Bubject ; and although many of our friends, for whom we have a sincere respect, think that we ought to accede in silence and thankfulness to the views of the Home Government, on the principle that half a loaf is better that no bread, wedo not incline to accept that alternative. We acknowledge our poverty, and ask for aid, in the same spirit in which an honest and industrious man asks for work, with the understood rights and dues of labour. The Home Government, after dallying with us for many years, leading, or at least permitting, us to be- lieve that we should be ma...

TO HIS GRACE THE DUKE OF NEWCASTLE, HER MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES, &c., &c., &c. The Humble Memorial of Land-owners, Merchants, Farmers, and other Inhabitants of Western Australia SHEWETH— [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

To His GRACE THE DUKE OF NEWCAS- TLE, HER MAJESTY'S PRINCIPAL SE CRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES, &C, &C, &C. The Humble Memorial of Land-owners, Merchants, Farmers, and other Inha- bitants of Western Australia SHEWETH THAT this Colony was founded in 1828 by the Imperial Government, and many persons were led to embark their capital and fortunes in it, in the belief that it was capable of affording them sufficient compensation and recompense for leaving their native Country. That no extensive tracts of good land have yet been found in it capable of sus- taining large flocks and herds, as in the other Colonies. That the Land Regulations for this Colony, originally adopted by the Home Government, had not the effect of en- couraging emigration hither. That the Colonists have met with con- tinual disappointments and discourage- ments in their hopes of finding remu- nerative markets for the timber and other natural products of the Country-with the* exception of s...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN RACES. THESE Races are kept up chiefly iin con- sequence of the annual prize of one hun- dred guineas, called the Queen's cPlate, given by the Government, and intended to prove an encouragement to the breed- ing of good horses. Whether it has had this effect is not very apparent, but all norse-breeders agree that it would be a pity to allow the donation to be with- drawn, and therefore some effort is every year made to prove that there are able competitors for the prize, and that it is deservedly won. The interest felt on the subject this year was somewhat late in making itself apparent, but all at once it broke out, like the bush fires, in all parts of the Colony at the same time, and every dis- trict burnt with desire to be worthily represented in horse-flesh at the great Colonial hippodrome. From the far distant regions of the remote North realms that appear to our ill-informed and excited imagination to be peopled with Anthrophagi - where Mr. Von Bibra, li...

Pinjarrah. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 31 March 1864

Pinjarrah.   A SAD event happened here last week ; a poor man named John Pollard, had his house and, everything in it, out-buildings, farm-imple- ments, hay, wheat, &c., &c., destroyed by a bush fire. In short, all he possessed in the world, with the exception of a few head of cattle, is swept away, and he is, after years of toil, reduced to great destitution. His case is peculiarly a hard one,for he is said to have lost a fine herd of cattle some time since by poison.     There is a great want of more police in this district; people are actually afraid to leave their houses, in remote localities, lest they be cleaned out by prowling convicts, and their families subjected to indignities. The Rev. J. S. Price performed Divine Ser- vice in the Pinjarrah Church on Sunday, the 27th instant. The rev. gentleman waa inva- lided from here some time back, and we were truly glad to see him amongst us once more in . apparent good health. A...

NEWSPAPER PATRONAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

NEWSPAPER PATRONAGE. Small is the sum that is required to patronise a newspaper, and amply re- munerated is the patron. Icare not how humble and unpretending is the news- paper which he takes. It is next to im- possible to fill a sheet with printed matter fifty-two times a year without putting into it something that is worth the sub- scription price. Every parent whose son is away from home at school should be supplied with a newspaper. I well re- ?* member what a marked difference there was between those of my school- mates who had and those who had not access to newspapers. Other things being equal, the first were always supe- rior to the last in debate and composition at least. The reason is plain ; they had. command of more facts. A newspaper is a history of current events,' as well as a copious and interesting miscellany, and which youth will peruse with delight when they will read nothing else. Judge Longstreet. "WHY don't you wheel the barrow of coals, Ned ?" said a miner to ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

To THE EDITOR OP THE W. A. TIKIS; SIR,-Asnpne4eeply interested, I wish, by the aid"of your Open Column, toJ call upon my brother Colonists to remember that "Union is Strength," and to join heartily in the application for a Sani- tarium. Let us not allow the clever speeches of a few short-sighted or in- terested individuals to blind us to our real interest, and cause us to throw cold water upon our best chance of obtaining compensation for the cessation of trans- portation. It is not my intention to enter at length upon the subject, but merely to point out the absurdity of refusing to aid the Memorial, because some parts of it may not suit our individual taste. Our refusal to sign, though it may lessen the weight of the Memorial, will in no wise alter its bearing upon the con- vict question. We have already gone far enough to shew that we are not satisfied with transportation, limited as it is at present, and to give the Sister Colonies an incentive for farther exertion ; want of una...

THE SANITARIUM MEMORIAL. INTERVIEW WITH THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

THE SANITARIUM MEMORIAL. INTERVIEW WITH THE GOVEBN0B. SEVERAL Gentlemen waited upon His Excellency at Government House, on Friday last, by appointment, for the pur- pose of representing to the Governor the depressed state of the Colony, and asking His Excellency's advice as to the best mode of applying to the Home Govern- ment for the formation of a Sanitarium for invalided Indian soldiers. - The following are the names :-Messrs. W. L. Brockman, L. Samson, S. P. Phil- lips, R. King, C. A. Manning, and E. W. Landor. The Hon. the Commandant, Lieutenant-Colonel Bruce, was present at the interview, having been requested by His Excellency to attend, as being,, from long connection with India, well acquainted with the subject. Mr. Brock- man briefly introduced the object of the deputation, and the Governor proposed either to express his own views first, or hear what was intended to be urged by those present, and then make his com* ments. The former course having been requested, His Excell...

tim d&imttíg IM. Tales for Country Readers. THE TEST OE ABSENCE. [Concluded.'] NEXT to love, pity is the strongest pas- sion which warms the breast of woman ; and if any resentment lurked in Millicent Burton's heart against her hus- band, it was turned to pity for the wretch- edness into which she was unwittingly the cause of plunging a confiding and perhaps amiable girl. ' For her sake,' she said, ' I cannot forgive you. At least you might have written to break off the engagement before proposing to me.' But we were strictly prohibited from corresponding. Poor girl ! I must own I dread to inquire after her. I feel acutely the wrong I have done ; it is irre- parable.' ' I fear she will prove a dangerous rival to me !' replied Mrs. Burton, in a tone meant to be jocular, but in reality not much pleased with the deep remorse her husband professed. 'No, no, Milly; let the honesty with which I have confided to you every tittle of that unhappy affair banish so unworthy a thought ;...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

The Open Column To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-I have most carefully weighed the arguments pro and con for the pro- posed Memorial for the establishment of a Sanitarium in lieu of Convicts, and I really cannot see any solid ground of op- position; the only plea is that of incon- sistency, but change of circumstances fully justifies change of opinion on our parts, and our friends at home who have fought so manfully for us in the cause of Transportation will, I am confident, fight as manfully for us in the cause of the Sanitarium, if it is shewn to be for the benefit of the Colony. The most zealous advocate in favour of Transportation must admit that he has been most grievously disappointed in the amount of benefit he expected from it. That Trans- portation to this Colony, as far as the mother country is concerned, has been a great success there is no question ; by the kind reception and judicious treatment of the men by the Colonists, numbers have been reclaimed from their ba...

MOZART: FIRST AND LAST. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

MOZART : EIRST AND LAST. UPON a beautiful morning in the month of April, 1762, a little girl, about eight years of age, and a boy about two years her junior, descended the vine covered bank of Kosoheez, at the foot of which murmured and flowed the pure and rapid waters of the river Moldau, which loses itself in the ancient forest of Bohemia. Instead of dancing on their path with all that lively gaiety so common to young people of their age, these two ehildren held each other by the hand, and walked slowly along, with thought- ful brows and downcast eyes, and the gravity of years stamped upon their faces ; yet all the easy grace, candour, and sim- plicity of childhood were observable in their countenances and motions. Their dress announced the poverty of their condition. The little girl's robes were faded and worn, while those of the boy were patched with cloths of different colours at both knees and elbows, j Nevertheless, poor though they seemed, it was easy to perceive that a kind...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN RACES. IK a second edition last week we gave the result of the Second Day's sport. The race of the Queen's Plate was a very interesting contest, and the result justified the opinion genarally entertained of Mr. Yon Bibra's horse. For the sake of those who may not have seen an account of Thursdays doings, we now furnish a brief record.

WíMt %mttüim ©im«. Disons JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THÜBSDAT, APEIL 7, 1864. THE PertfoGdeette of last week, in a fair and dispassionate article; combats the views which have recently been put for- ward in this journal, connected with the Sanitarium question. It is pleasant to find an opponent who honestly attacks our arguments without betraying that ill spirit of personal rancour with r which, we are sometimes favoured. The Perth Ganefte no doubt represents the views of a good many when it opposes a Memorial which expresses a readiness on the part of the Colonists to see transportation to this Colony done away with altogether, provided^ a sufficient compensation be afforded us in lieu thereof; not believing that )a1 Sanitarium would prove a suffi- cient substitution. It urges ,that appli- cation should be made for a Sanitarium, without reference to any other argument whatever. This is the first idea that probably occurs to every one who begins to think upon the subject. ...

A CRICKET MATCH [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 7 April 1864

A CRICKET MATCH BETWEEN Perth and Fremantle came off at the latter place on Tuesday, the 5th instant. Notwithstanding the gloomy apprehensions of the previous day, the weather was all that could be wished, and the ground, which is a first-rate one, was in perfect order. Fremantle having won the toss, put their opponents in, to the bowling of Newman and Cooper, and disposed of them rather quickly for 52 runs. The Fremantle Eleven then handled the wil- low, King and Knight bowling on the Perth side. The Fremantle-ites were not got rid of till they had obtained 73 runs, thus heading the score by 21. Half-an-hour was then allowed for re- freshment, and then the play began again with fresh vigour. This time Perth made a long stand, and got 90 runs, leaving Fremantle 70 to get to win. The latter part of their innings was most exciting, as the score rose within a few of the necessary number of runs ; but all the wickets had fallen for 68, and the Perth won by 2. The ground during the day w...
