GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. The Government Gazette of the present week is of unusual magnitude, and contains the advertisements of the Local Government for their supplies of all descriptions for the ensuing year, forage for Police service and for the horses attached to the Public Works department being the principal items. Several Registry Districts under the 19th Vict. No. 12, are proclaimed in the same Gazette, and the appointment of Mr. James Bartram notified as Registrar for the Beverley District. A Post-master is also ap- pointed at Kojonup in the person of Sergeant Robert Loton. ON Monday evening last, the Metropolitan Volunteers had another parade at half-past seven o'clock, and as soon as the moon was up, about half-past eight o'clock, were drilled by the Adjutant in the Bishop's school enclosure. As on the former occasion, several of our towns- people were drawn out to witness the parade and hear the band. THE Perth Amateur Performers are bent upon giving some little variety in t...

THE YORK EXPLORING EX-   PEDITION.   Messrs. John Seabrook and J. Cowan, two of the members of this Expedition, arrived in York on the 16th Instant, with nine horses. They bring the following letters from Mr. Hunt : - September 24, 1864. SIR,- I have the honour, and same time regret, to have to forward, for your information, my intended return to York in the course of a month from this date, having been unable to penetrate farther than longitude 121 deg. 55 min. E. The cause of my return will be the great scarcity of water. At present I have abundance of good feed for the horses, and the same in the form of game of several descrip- tions, the emu and the kangaroo being about in good numbers. This, I think, goes far to prove that I am on the edge of a fine country, but the great absence of water is an obstacle I cannot surmount to my further progress, unless I have a good rain, of which we have had but little since leaving the settlement. I and the party hav...

CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

CHAMPION BAY.   We have letters from Geraldton to the 10th Instant ; they contain intelligence of the murder of another white man by the natives on the back runs of the Irwin; the victim this time being James Rudd, the master of the poor fel- low whose slaughter was reported in Mr. Gray's letter published last week. It is evident that some means must be devised to give protection to the out-lying stations in the north, and the only method of doing so is, apparently, for the police to maintain a constant patrol from one to another ; at present although a strong force of police is kept in the Northern District, they seem to be anywhere but where they are most needed. " The stranding of the Zephyr was unfortu- nately followed by an accident attended with loss of life. According to our accounts, some men left the ship in a boat to take some sheep on shore, it is said, against the advice of Capt. Elliot, the boat was capsized in the surf and three of the crew unhappily drown...

GLEANINGS FROM LATE PAPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 October 1864

GLEANINGS FROM LATE PAPERS.   Late advices from New York state that Secretary Fessenden has appealed to the bank- ers for a loan of 50,000,000 dols, until Septem- ber 1st, to meet the immediate wants of Go- vernment. It is asserted that Mr. Fessenden intends curtailing the currency, and to bring it down to meet the provision in the 2nd section of the New Loan Act which declares that the total amount of United States notes issued or to be issued shall never exceed 400,000,000 dols. Lord Carlisle has come home from Dublin, sick he says, ennuyé to death as the public seems to believe. The vice-royalty was offered to the Marquis of Lansdowne, who prefers to remain on his estates, and to the Duke of Devonshire, who pleads the same excuse. The 'Times' hints that the post has been offered to Lord Wodehouse. Prince Alfred is also sug- gested, and his appointment is much discussed. There is much talk in the clubs of a coming shower of peerages, and people who know everything pro...

NOVEL MEAT-CURING. (Yeoman, Sept. 17.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

NOVEL MEAT-CURING. (Yeoman. Sept, 17.) Our situation has been drawn to a new meat- * * which promises to revolutionize **. It is an English invention by Dr. * and Ms. *. Though but a few months, and its properties only half developed, it has already created a great sensation in interested quarters. Dr. Hassall, F.L.S.,the distinguished author of Food and its Adulterations, and other kindred works, has subjected the curing fluid-for therein lies the patented invention-and the cured meat to a critical analysis, the result of which appears to be highly favourable to the general hope. The Admiralty, also, instituted experiments with a view to the application of the discovery to military and naval purposes, and throughout the trades concerned, considerable anxiety as to the result appears to have been excited. Meat-curing by this process must be de- scribed as an attempt not to produce what is known as junk, but to preserve joints and other portions of the slaughtered in their pri- mitiv...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) THE event of the week has been the Cricket Match between the Perth and Fremantle Clubs, which came off on Thursday, the 20th instant, and ended with a victory in favor of the former with ten wickets to fall ; a better day for play- ing could not have been chosen, and, conse- quently, the teams were in high spirits and took their positions with the determination of enjoying a first-rate day's sport. The Fre- mantle men won the toss and went in first; after a short innings all their wickets had gone down with a total of only twenty-two runs ; the Captain of the Perth Eleven then placed his men in charge of the willow, from which they retired with 108 runs, Mr. G. Knight scoring 41. Ours again went in and resigned the bats after adding 88 to their first innings, making a total of 110 runs leaving but 3 for their oppo- nents to go in against, which they did and won the day. On Friday our Volunteers assembled for a general parade, and in order to ...

CHAMPION BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

CHAMPION BAY. By the Kestrel Mr. Carr, the Agent for the Zephyr, has received intelligence from Port Gregory, of the recovery of the Zephyr from her sand bed in Port Gregory. We understand Mr. L. S. Leake will proceed to Champion Bay in the Ziska, and from thence, with others will proceed to Port Gregory to hold a survey upon the Zephyr. The following are extracts from Capt. Elliott's letter to Mr. Carr : — " Port Gregory, October 12. " We succeeded in getting the Zephyr off the strand this morning, and she is now safe in Port Gregory. We had to take every available thing out of the ship to lighten her before we were able to heave her off, she had gone so far up, twice her length, the ground being per- fectly level. The ship does not appear to have recived any injury whatever, except a sheet or two of metal from her keel ; she never touched with her bilge, and there does not appear to be a cracked seam or piece of pitch about her, nor has she made the least water during all the time...

CHANGE OF CLIMATE AS A REMEDIAL AGENT. To the Editor of the Lancet. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

CHANGE OF CLIMATE AS A REMEDIAL — AGENT. —         To the Editor of the Lancet. SIR,- It appears from news lately arrived that the Colonists of Western Australia have taken a very judicious step. A deputation from them have suggested to the Governor the establishment of a Sanitarium both for English and Indian invalids in the eminently healthy climate of Swan River. It must be a matter of great satisfaction to every one that the Colony itself should thus reciprocate an opinion which has long been arising in the minds of many observers at home. There is a growing conviction that whereas total change of climate is one of the most powerful remedial agents in existence, it is one which is as yet comparatively unrecognised. It must be admitted that we have hitherto failed to employ climatic influ- ences medically on any organized system, for it is a mere temporizing process, an ineffectual "putting off of the evil day, when the victim o...

THE RECORD OF A TRIUMPH! CONSOLATION FOR THE SUFFERING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

THE RECORD OF A TRIUMPH! CONSOLATION FOR THE SUFFERING. There is no little consolation in the thought that, however the impostor may flourish for the season, he cannot long continue to delude man- kind. How many men contrive to acquire a brief and flashy reputation, and then sink into disrepute and oblivion ! This is especially true of the pretenders to medioal skill, who, in an age when diseases abound, seek to inveigle themselves into the confidence of the public, and to impose upon it with their noxious nos- trums. We confess that years ago, when we first heard of the universal celebrity of Professor HOLLOWAY, we distrusted his lofty claims, and arrogated to ourselves a superiority of discern- ment which would not allow him to entrap our judgment. Most heartily do we beg his par- don for the unjust imputation. A careful study of his system convinced us that we were indeed mistaken, and that the world, to do him justice, should immediately, as it undoubtedly will hereafter, rank h...

THE LOST CHILDREN. (From the Melbourne Herald, Sept. 5th.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

THE LOST CHILDREN. (From the Melbourne Herald, Sept. 5th.) A case more generally pathetic than that of the three children who were re- cently lost in the bush in the Hamilton district has seldom been published. The following brief narrative of the occurence, with some additional particulars of the search which providentially resulted in the rescue of the little truants, are from the Ararat Advertiser, and will, we are confident amply repay perusal : - "A family named Duff reside on Mr. Dugald Smith's station, near Horsham. They have been occupying a hut near the home station. On Friday, the 12th of August, at about nine o'clock in the morning, three of the children were sent by their mother to cut some broom, a little dis- tance from the hut. They did not return when expected, and their parents soon came to the conclusion that they had been lost in the bush. When some hours had passed away without the children returning, the father began a search on horseback through the bush, and l...

THE "SHOE PINCHING" IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

THE "SHOE PINCHING" IN TAS- MANIA. The first sentence or two in yesterday's Melbourne telegram calls for some re- mark. "Captain SAUNDERS, of the Black Swan, has been fined five pounds for bringing an expiree from Tasmania. Cap- tain SAUNDERS offered to take him back free. There was great excitement." Why? Is this the first expiree that has found his way to Melbourne ? Or will it be the last? Of what is Melbourne society composed? Whence was the population of Melbourne drawn originally that those now raising all this hubbub should be so very squeamish? Those that preach up virtue and chastity are not always the most virtuous and chaste. This is proverbial, and would, perhaps, as much apply to the people of Melbourne, as to those of any other place. At any rate, our police and general criminal re- cords will compare favorably with theirs. And although it was at one time our misfortune to be subjected to a different regime to that which now obtains here, Melbourne should neither forge...

NATAL. (From the Yeoman.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

NATAL. (From the Yeoman.) About the time when Batman, Fawk- ner, and Co., were startling the kanga- roos from their peaceful nibblings on the banks of the Yarra, and Colonel Gawler, was founding what, upon the whole, has turned out to be the most respectable of the Australian colonies, a shipload of their fellow countrymen planted them- selves on the sultry wastes of Natal. The land presented a series of abrupt descents from a mountainous interior rent by tremendous torrents, but on the seashore eminently fertile. The natives were few and sparse in the immediate vicinity, but in the background very many and very troublesome. For an African monarch their sovereign was not extraordinarily unmanageable. He was addicted to murder when either in a good humour or a bad one, but although when savage or frisky given to letting off the scream by cutting a few hun- dred or thousand tawny throats, his wholesome dread of gunpowder pro- tected the white ones. Fights occasion- ally broke out betw...

REMARKABLE DISTRICTS OF AUSTRALIA. RIVERINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

REMARKABLE DISTRICTS OF AUSTRALIA. RlVERINA. The time has not yet come, and some years will probably precede its coming, before the colonists of the seaboard of south-east- ern Australia will be able to realize the results of the peculiar formation and climate of the Murray basin. At present it is simply a region of flocks and herds. The runs are unusually   large, the squatters in most cases apparently wealthy, though not a few of them in reality are mere conduit pipes for the Melbourne banks, and wool reigns over all. The "Riverines" state that they now own about 4,000,000 sheep, above 200,000 cattle, and some 30 or 40 thou- sand horses, and their population, it is believed, amounts to some 20,000 persons, chief of whom are adult males engaged in doing the work necessary in pastoral pursuits. Neither is it likely that future changes will diminish the ab- solute value of the Riverina cattle and sheep, but infinately increase them. It is computed on good authority that ...
