TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-I do not intend to enter into a contro- versial correspondence in reference to the pro- posed Memorial, yet think it due to you, as well as to myself, to correct a statement which appears in your impression of to-day. J have stated my objections to the original draft of Memorial, which I never adopted at all, much less cordially. I never forwarded a copy of the said Memorial to Mr. Boss Mangles m any shape ; the only written copy I ever saw was at a few minutes' interview with Mr. Brockman (in respect for whom, personally, I yield to no one) ; I then refused to sign or adopt it, stating my reasons. You must surely be under some misappre- hension, or would not have made this state- ment. I was, and am still, one of those who think the establishment of a Sanitorium might be the means of incalculable benefit to this Colony, if only by the opening up of regular communication with India. But, as I said before, the application must be made -in the pr...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

York. , A CBIOKET MATCH between York and Beverley came off on the ground of the former, on Friday, the 15th instant. The day was all that could be wished for, and the ground in very good order. - York won the toss, and put the Beverley eleven in, to the bowling of Mas singham and Morwick, who disposed of them. after having obtained 50 runs. The Yorkites then handled the bat, against the bowling of Broun and Bartlett. They were soon got rid "of, not having come up to Beverley by 5 runs. The cricketers then left the ground to partake of a luncheon at the Castle Hotel, at which all seemed heartily to enjoy themselves. The play was then resumed with fresh Bpirit, the Beverleyites went in and got! 62 runs, leaving York 68 to win, which they did/ leaving six wickets to fall. The ground was decorated with flags of all descriptions, and a numerous attendance of in- terested spectators were present. - We must not forget the kindness with which the UmpiréB' so efficiently 'performed their dut...

COTTON-GROWING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

COTTON-GROWING. To THE EDITOE OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-Observing your remarks expressive of a desire for information respecting the growth of Cotton, I proceed to give you the result of my observations. In the year 1861 myself and others planted several times, but an underground grub de- stroyed the plants as soon as they appeared above the ground. In 1862 some parties planted and succeeded in bringing the plants to maturity. The Cot- ton Bamples produced therefrom I caused to be forwarded to the Manchester Association, who valued them at, I think, 3s. 5d. to 3s. 9d., per pound. In 1863, between fifty and sixty acres of Cotton were planted at this place. In the virgin soil cleared for the purpose in several places it failed, by a destructive grub devouring it; in other places it was not protected from the trampling of cattle and horses, etc., and failed; in others, it was planted in rich land close to dense thickets, and the small bush animals and sheep devoured and destroyed it ; a...

Eastern Colonies. NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

Eastern Colonies. NEW SOOTH WALES. The cricket match is concluded. The Sydney Twenty-two were out in the first innings for 137 ; second innings, 50 ; total, 187. The All England Eleven in the first innings for 128 ; in the second innings they beat with four wickets to spare. At one time during the match, 20,000 spectators were on the ground. Inspector Shadforth has been suspended for not capturing Ben Hall, the bushranger, whom he encountered on a late occasion. Ben Hall stopped the Wagga Wagga moil on Monday, but took nothing. He stated that he was waiting for other parties. The communication with Brisbane is still in- terrupted. A despatch from the home authorities re- specting war vessels built for Chinese has been received, and cautions the Government against permitting the sale of any such in colonial ports to foreign Powers. It directs that members of colonial executives, after three years' service, or as premiers, after one, are entitled to the dis- tinction of " Honorable." ...

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

©fr* êytti Catan. To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-Will you permit one who has never before troubled you with contributions to your valuable and public-spirited journal, to address a few lines through you to the politicians and social economists of West Australia P It seems a doubtful question, at present, on which side the people will range themselves, whether for or against Transportation. A look bock at the fortunes, the position, and the ad- vantages of the Colony will be best before we decide what we shall do for ourselves. Our retrospect shall go as far as those sad days of depression preceding the introduction of Convicts. It seemed a strange dream, then, that the outcasts of other society should infuse healthful life and vigour into our own. But as the drowning catch at straws, so West Australia clutched that hope to her, and it has proved a dream. Her various associa- tions, her public operations, have been galvan- ised into spasmodic and temporary activity by the tra...

LATEST DTTELLIGENCE. FEBRUARY 28, 1864. THE WAB IN DENMARK. BATTLE AT DÜPPEL-DEFEAT OF THE PRUS- SIANS.-The Prussians on Monday morning at 7 o'clock, drove in the Danish outposts and occupied the villiage of Düppel. They were dislodged by a cannonade from the bastions. The action lasted four hours. Two Danish regiments were engaged. Two hundred men are dead and wounded, with many officers.

BRITISH & FOREIGN Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

BRITISH &> FOREIGN Gleanings. THE GREAT SHIP.-The Great Eastern was sold on Wednesday by auction at Liverpool. She was knocked down to j the Great Eastern Steam Company (Li- mited) for =625,000. The Company has, however, purchased bonds of the Great Ship Company to the extent of ¿?70,000, so that deducting interest the cost of the Leviathan to them-will be about ¿880,000. HOOP-DE-DOODEN "DONE!"-At a public ball given by the wife of the Pre- fect of the Seine, at which 3,000 persons were present, no crinoline was worn. The Government has published a mass of correspondence between Earl Eussel and Mr. Adams in the matter of the Alabama. The drift of the whole is a I demand put forward by the United States that Great Britain shall compensate all American owners who may be losers by | the Alabama, that vessel being built by British shipwrights, and manned by British sailors, and therefore a British ship. The absurdity of the demand may be demonstrated in three lines. ¿The ...

APPALLING CALAMITY IN CHILI. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

APPALLING CALAMITY IN CHILI. The following detailed account of the terrible occurrence in the Church of La Compania, is from a Santiago correspond- ent, who dates his letter Dec. 14,1863 : I am writing under the shadow of a fearful and heart-rending public calamity, unparalleled I think in the history of nations. Santiago mourns in loud lamentation the loss of 2,000 of its fairest daughters, who, but a short time ago radiant in beauty and life, now lie in masses of hideous and blackened corpses, victims to the imprudence (if one should use so mild a term) of a fanatical clergy. At sunset on the 8th inst., the colossal Jesuit temple of La Compania held within its walls upwards of 2,000 souls. Long unes of carriages were still driving up to the doors, and there depositing hundreds of fair girls, who had with some difficulty, and by great influence with the clergy, procured reserved tickets of admission to the grand evening mass, in honour of the anniversary of the feast of the " Im- m...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

lest insinuait ®iwts. B DISCITE JUSTOTAH, MONITI. ^ Hear and be JUST. _:_ i THURSDAY, APEIL 21, 1864. THIS Colony is in the condition of one who, in the extremity of pressing circum- stances, has been driven to make a bar- gain with the Arch Enemy. Compelled by poverty, it applied in a certain quarter for aid, and offered all it had to give-its Future - for the promise of immediate wealth. As usual in such bargains, the word of promise has been honestly kept to the ear, but the benefits received have been of the amount usually obtained under the circumstances. The wealth bestowed has failed to enrich. It vanishes before it can be grasped or enjoyed. We are bound to believe that the stipulated annual sum is deposited in our coffers, because we are told so by the GOVERNOR, but when we come to look for it, we find but few traces of it in the Colony. What becomes of our annual ¿698,000, for which we sold our free population, and delivered over the Colony to its tor- mentors ? A small po...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-Men of Swan River, and Swan River Men-a distinction with a mighty difference. The one, short-sighted and narrow-minded, signed a certain document some years ago, and are now reaping the fruits; the other, more far-seeing and liberal-minded, did not sign that precious document. One of its most strenuous supporters went home after things had reached their best, but not to return ! And now what is coming to pass? Western Australia be- coming a second Ireland. Middle-men and Agents springing up to represent Absentees drawing a~ comfortable living from their pro- perty here to be spent in England or elsewhere. Well, what of all this, you will say. Why, I Bay, don't do things by halves, brother settlers, either have Prisoners on a very large scale (even taking them from Sydney, Melbourne, and Adelaide, as the Geelong paper suggests) with adequate protection, or have none at all.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 April 1864

To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TlMES. SIB,-Having occasion a few days ago to visit Champion Bay, I observed that the road from the sea jetty at that place towards the Copper Mines has not progressed for many months past, and that the road towards the Greenough Flats remains in the same state that nature made it. It is true that about one mile of the road from the sea jetty to the Copper Mines has been macadamized, and it is also true that it has taken the Convict Department, with the road-party located by the side of it continually for the last 8 years, that same time to make that mile, and it is also true that the traffic cart-wheelB travel a foot deep on the sandy road both to the Copper Mines north of the jetty and the Greenough Flats south of it. Will it then be believed by any sane person in the world the macadimization of the rood to the Copper Mines is discontinued? That the branch road from it to the Greenough Flats is not commenced, and that, while these two roads are in the st...

Fremantle. A Fremantle correspondent sends us the following: — On Friday evening last, Mr. H. Shepherd Bosser, (who came out Scripture reader in the York, Convict ship), delivered at Mrs. Marmion's Hotel, for the benefit of the Working Man's As- sociation, Fremantle, the first of a series of Readings, being the late Albert Smith's cele- brated Work entitled "Ledbury's Adventures in Paris." The Lecturer having been formally and gracefully introduced to the Meeting by the President of the Association, the Rev. G. J. Bostock, delivered a sparkling epigramatical   Prologue written by himself for the occasion, which, with the lecture, was received in a marked and gratifying manner by one of the most crowded audiences that ever met in Fre- mantle. At the conclusion the Rev. J. S. Johnston, Vice President of the Association, proposed a vote of thanks to the Lecturer, which was heartily responded to, together with three cheers, proposed by C. A.
