Our Back Parlour. No. III. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

Our Back Parlour No. III MR. SPROUTS (who was got up regardless of expense) attended the next Reception of our Deputy-Sub-Editor. On giving his card to one of the numerous atten- dants at the foot of the steps which con- duct to Mount Olympus, his name was thundered upwards to the group of Printer's Imps on the top of the first flight, who duly passed it on to those beyond, until the scared and stumbling visitor was heralded into the august Presence. " Mi-. Sprats !" " Mr. Squirt !" "Mr. Squelch!" "Mr. Squedge!" were the appellations accorded to him, seriatim, until he entered the Reception-room. MR. DEPUTY-Sprouts, my boy, how are you ? Where's your charming Aunt ? SPROUTS-She feared, Sir, she would scarcely be able to attend this evening ; her cold - MR. DEPUTY-Then will we smoke the Calumet of Peace.

THE HEROISM OF BUSH LIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

THE HEROISM OF BUSH LIFE. AN incident in the life of a poor man was related last week in the course of our Criminal Sessions that, in a former age, would have excited general admiration. Two shepherds were in charge of one of the flocks of Mr. John Hassell, at a remote station. There was no other station within 20 miles of them. One afternoon, some time ago, one of these men, while occupied in his hut, which was only composed of stakes and rushes, fancied he heard a groan at a little distance. Going out- side, he again heard the sound of low moaning, and soon discovered his companion, Charles Storey, lying insensible in a brake, and covered with innumerable spear-wounds. Carrying him on his back to the hut, he laid him on his kangaroo-skin rug, washed and probed his wound, succeeded in extracting the barb of a spear which was burid in his side, and ulti- mately restored him to consciousness. It turned out that Storey had been attacked by a band of natives, who wished to seize the sh...

Supreme Court. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

Supreme Court. CRIMINAL SITTINGS. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1863. Teelup, an aboriginal native, charged with the murder of Charles Storey, a shepherd of Mr. John Hassell's, by spearing him. EDWARD LADBURY. I live with Mr. Graham at Adecup, 90 miles from Albany. Recollects 23rd July, 1801. I was at Jucop, 120 miles from Albany - 20 miles from Jerrymungup. Charles Storey was shepherd. In the after- noon of 23rd July, I was standing by the fire. I heard a groaning noise, very low, and went down to the empty bed of the river in search, and heard the noise again. Followed up the groans, and found C. Storey lying under a tree. He could not speak ; was bleeding in all parts. I put him on my back, and carried him to the hut. I examined a wound, by putting my pen- knife into the wound in his side, and felt wood. I got it out, and found it was the barb of a spear. Wind gushed out of the wound. I tied   up his wound. I went out into the bush to loo...

Arrival of the Overland Mail. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

Arrival of the Overland Mail. NEWS from Europe up to August 26 has been received. No great national events have oc- curred in the interval since the departure of the previous mail. England, Poland, France, and Austria have delivered a second series of notes to Russia, on the subject of Poland; but as Russia has refused to entertain the question diplomatically, the Western Powers must either remain content with merely entering their protest against the barbarities practised upon the Poles, or they must take more energetic steps. The latter course is scarcely probable. Meanwhile the Poles are fighting manfully, and are usually victorious. The national Polish Government is said to be at Paris, and that Prince Czartoryski was at its head, but he has been arrested on his own estate in Prussia, and taken to Berlin. The Nord says that the replies of the three Powers to the notes of the Russian government were delivered to Prince Gortschokoff on Aug. 19, the Vice-Chancellor having gone to S...

The Chimney Book Tales for Country Headers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich ZschoJcke.) [Continued from our last.] CHAPTER VII. " When does your royal highness re- quire the carriage ?" whispered a stout little Dutch merchant, in a bob wig. " Not at all," answered Philip. "'Tis after half-past eleven, and the beautiful singer expects you. She will tire of waiting." " Let her sing something to cheer her." "How, prince? Have you changed your mind ? Would you leave captivating Rollina in the lurch, and throw away the golden opportunity you have been sighing for these two months ? The letter you sent to-day, enclosing the diamond watch, did wonders. The proud but fragile beauty surrenders. This morning you were in raptures, and now you are as cold as ice! What is the cause of the change ?" " That is my business, not yours," said Philip. " I had orders to join you at half-past eleven. Perhaps you have other engage- ments ?" " Perhaps." "A petit souper with th...

Cape of Good Hope. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

Cape of G-ood Hope. FROM the Cape Argus, of August 20, we learn that the Confederate war steamers Alabama and Georgia, had paid the Cape a visit, put into their bays, repaired, cleaned, painted, taken in a good supply of fuel, and that one of them, the Alabama, made a splendid capture of a Federal barque, the Sea Bride, within sight of Table Mountain. The Alabama, having brought the barque to, at about six miles from land, sent a boat with the prize crew off, took possession of her in the name of the Confederate States, and sent her to sea. The Alabama then made for port. The excitement caused by the capture is described as intense, and the writer re- marks:-"We found the heights overlooking Table Bay crowded with people ; the road to Green Point lined with cabs ; the windows of the villas at the bottom of the hill were thrown up, and ladies waved their handkerchiefs, and one and all joined in the general enthusiasm. Over the quarries, along the Malay burial ground, the gallows hill...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1863. THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 October 1863

West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1863. THE TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. THIS Question still agitates the public mind of the neighbouring colonies, and in London a meeting of colonists was held on July 21st, at Willis' Rooms, when the usual expressions of "alarm and   indignation" were vented. MAJOR SAND- FORD was the only West Australian present, and he had pluck enough to oppose the resolution of the meeting against transportation, and was left in a minority of one. MR. HENEY R. GREL- LET and MR. ROSS D. MANGLES have also come forward manfully in the co- lumns of the Times. MR. GRELLET very justly denied the truth of the statement which has so often been quoted on these occasions, that forty conditional-pardon men landed at Sydney from one vessel. No such circumstance ever occurred. Victoria has passed a law prohibiting   such men from landing on her shores ; and when ex-convicts leave this territory they...

Review. Western Australian Church of England Magazine. Perth: A. SHENTON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

gefriefor.Review Western Australian Church of England Magazine. Perth: A. SHENTON. THERE are still perhaps some inhabitants of the Colony who do not know that, for upwards of twelve months, a periodical with the above title has been published monthly, at Perth. As it has no strong sectarian bitterness of flavour about it, we are glad to say that it receives the support of liberal Wesleyans, as well as of members of the Church of England, and has attained a circulation which we hope will ensure its permanent success. One of the principal objects of such a periodical is, not only to convey informa- tion of whatever is likely to prove in- teresting and useful to a Christian com- munity, but also to draw together more intimately the members of that commu- nity, by affording them a common vehicle for the expression of their views and sen- timents upon subjects of the deepest interest to all thinking minds. What- ever is designed to promote harmony and good-fellowship among us, is deservi...

Albany. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

Albany.       THE entertainment given on the 7th instant, at the Freemasons' Hotel, by the inhabitants of this town and neighbourhood in honor of His Excellency's arrival, was attended by all the principal inhabitants. Sir Alexander T. Cockburn Campbell, Bart., was in the chair, and E. M. Spencer, Esq., vice-president. The room was tastefully decorated, and the table sumptuously provided. Everything went off in the most satisfactory manner. Greenough Flats. THE early-sown crops in this district are, we are glad to leam, looking exceedingly well. The barley is in full ear; but the late-sown wheat crops are suffering much from want of rain. This complaint is, unfortunately, general throughout the Colony. It is said that about 50 acres of land, at Greenough, will be planted with cotton this season.

Our Chimney Book Tales for Country Readers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich Zschokke.) [Continued from our last.} AT these words, the party confusedly withdrew from the window ; nor did the prince remain where he was, but quickly effected his escape through a cross-street. A crowd of servants rushed out of the palace, led by the secretaries of the fi- nance, and commenced a search for the offender. " We have him !" cried some, as the rest eagerly approached. It was, in fact, the real guardian of the night, who was carefully perambulating his beat, in innocent unconsciousness of any offence. In spite of all he could say, he was disarmed, and carried off to the watch-house, and charged with causing a disturbance by singing libellous songs. The officer of the police shook his head at the unaccountable event, and said, "We have already one watchman in custody, whose verses about some girl caused a very serious affray between the townspeople and the garrison....

THE LAND REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

THE LAND REGULATIONS. IT has been pointed out to us that the full sum of £400 is not to be paid at once for a mineral section, but only £1 per acre per annum for each 80 acre section. This is so ; and it is for parties who are likely to be affected by the pro- posed Regulations, to come forward without delay, and say whether the pre- payment of £80 be or be not a stumbling block to prevent their proceeding to explore the real wealth of a mineral dis- trict. We are still inclined to think that a small annual sum, in the shape of a rent-charge, for a couple of years, (say not less than £10 per 100 acres), with the right of pre-emption at £5 per acre, would be the most expedient measure. His EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR HAMPTON, accompanied by the Hon. the Colonial Secre- tary and Mr. George Hampton, returned from his trip to "King George's Sound on Friday last.

The Open Column. MODERN TRACTARIANS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

The Open Column MODERN TRACTARIANS. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Some people with a great amount of zeal, but very little judgment, are in the habit of putting religious tracts into the hands of young children, without at all considering whether they are really doing good or harm by this measure. I was greatly annoyed and dis- gusted at finding one of my children studying a tract (delivered to her at a Sunday-school) addressed to the young women of his flock by a 'Village Pastor." It was better fitted for the occupants of a Penitentiary, or a jail, than, for a young girl of 13, who had never dreamt of the vices and immorality which she was thus informed of. This system of warning the groom from the Confessional not to grease the the teeth of his master's horses before giving them their beans, is most pernicious. Pray let our well-meaning instructors consider whether the tracts they hawk about are really likely to improve the minds of young girls before they deliver them fo...

Fremantle. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

Fremantle. The Fremantle Rifle Volunteer Corps, mus- tering 40 in all, paraded on Tuesday. They fell in near St. John's Church, and were marched down to the parade-ground for the purpose of presenting a farewell address to their Captain, whose kind and valuable services they are about to lose, by his removal from the Commisariat Staff of this colony to that of New Zealand. Captain Price, accompanied by Capt. Finnerty, A.C.G. Ashton, and D.A.C.G. Telfer, arrived on the ground at 11h 30m., when the Band struck up the tune of Auld Lang Syne. After the usual preliminaries, Lieut. Mc. B. Broun read the address to Captain Price, which was very well worded, gratefully acknowledging Captain Price's kind, gentle, and yet firm behaviour towards all connected with the Corps, wishing him a safe and speedy journey to his new appointment, and all pros- perity. Captain Price then read his reply, acknowledging the cordial and entire coopera- tion of officers and men connected with the Corps, thanki...

Miscellaneous. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863

Miscellaneous.. The akl-but completion of the Indian Tele graph, constructed on Government account at Mr. Henley's works, North Woolwich, under the auspices of Colonel Patrick Stewart, Sir Charles Bright, and Mr. Latimer Clarke, has come on the public with a suddenness - the simile will not be inappropriate - of an electric shock. Sheathed now, not only in incorrosible wire, but in good hemp covered with a "patent composition," composed of asphalte, Swedish pitch, and powdered silica, the new cable is said to be capable of resisting decay and the ruinous embraces of coral and barnacles. The inner wires are coated with gutta-percha, and that is the only item which excites a doubt. Will gutta-percha produce the same amount of, absolute insulation as is producible by the employment of india-rubber.   M. Du Chaillu, the celebrated traveller, departed from St. Katharine's Docks in the ship Mentor, on August 6, for Africa. Amongst his stores is a complete photographic apparat...

Our Back Parlour No. IV. THE State Reception of last Saturday, evening was, from unexplained causes, attended solely by Mr. Wobbles, who found our Deputy-Sub-Editor engaged, as usual, with his friendly pipe, but not in his usual equable spirits. In truth, his brow was corrugated with the wrin- kles of Care, and although his favourite Pewter was ever ready at hand, it failed on this occasion to smooth away the troubles which affected his temper and his visage. MR. WOBBLES-Well, Sir, you look cheerful to-night. I thought I'd step up and join you in a whiff of Hardey's nic -what-d'ye-call-it! -odium, eh? MR. DEPUTY-Hang Hardey and his dock-leaves.
