Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "Be just and fear not; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."—Shakspeare[?] FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

)jcrtt «»jette * 9BL 1. dime*. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st a* be thy country's Thy God's, and truth's."-Sliakspeare. . 'FRIDAY, APRTlTl4ri863. The Correspondence published in our issues of the last and previous week, be- tween the Government and Lloyd's Agents, Messrs. Bickley & Co., as re- gards the former can only be regarded in one light-as most evasive and exhibiting a determination, whether right or wrong, to maintain the present unsatisfactory and, as regards the intei'ests of the colony, we cannot but consider, most in- jurious system. Messrs. Bickley in their letters have so fully and conclusively pointed out the blots in our Harbor sys- tem, that we need not do more than direct attention to the most salient points, in addition to those we animadverted upon a fortnight since. The letter of the 3rd January last calls the attention of the Government to the extraordinary rules for exemption from Dues ; particularly in the levy of full rates upo...

SUPPLYING DRINK TO THE ABORIGINES. (Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

I SUPPLYING- DEINK TO THE ABÖEIGINES. (Adelaide Observer.) We" have on several occasions called attention to the folly and danger of giving di'ink to blackfellows ; and the cases which have recently been brought before the public show thai the custom still con- tinues in some quarters, and that there are amongst us persons silly and wicked enough to violate the law in this respect, and thus to endanger the lives of their neighbours. Our columns have within the last few months borne testimony to gross outrages perpetrated by intoxicated and infuriated aborigines on unoffending persons, principally women ; and it seems very certain that inneighbourhoods where the natives congregate no man's life is safe, and no woman's honour is secure, if persons are foolish enough to continue the practice of giving intoxicating liquors to the blacks. It is well known that these poor creatures are infuriated and maddened by a small portion of drink. What would be comparatively innocuous to a white ma...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) Great interest is manifested in the forthcom- ing shooting match for the prize rifle, and the scores of those competing for the classification ave attentively studied. I am told that ' the Fremantle champions will land under Mt. Eliza as they did on a former occasion/ and will leave here by steamer about 8 a.m. I cannot say anything definite about the fares for the general public, but believe that Messrs. Ran- dall with their accustomed liberality will not deviate from the rule adopted on all'similar affairs, viz. 6d. each way. : The Perth Volunteers paid their return visit' to their Fremantle brethren in arms on Mon- day evening, arriving at the north jetty by the Lady Stirling about. 8*15 p.m.^ The steamer ¡Friends also accompanied her sister, and irrespective of the Volunteers between three and four hundred people from the Metropolis must have taken advantage of the, pleasant trip and visited Fremantle.

THE MONTH. SCIENCE AND ARTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

TEE MONTH. SCIENCE AND ARTS. A striking discovery and "singularly interesting experiment by Professor Tyndall, are a good beginning of a' scientific session. A short time ago, he demonstrated that an opaque solution oj iodine would intercept the luminous rays of a highly-heated body, but allow the obscure rays, or heat-rays, to pass. The same effect takes place with pure bisul- phide of carbon, so that with these two substances an experimentalist can detach, one set of rays from the other, although they are issuing at the same time from the heated substance. This power ; of separation enables him to experiment on one set or the other at pleasure, and it ia Professor Tyndall's experiments on the obscure rays which we are now to notice, He produced an electric light, and,, of course heat, by a powerful battery ; then placing his solution of iodine at a proper distance, the luminous beam was cut off; but the intolerable temperature felt 09 placing his hand at the focus, provde that the...

PHOTO-SCULPTURE. (Evening Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

PHOTO-SCULPTURE. \ (Evening Mail.) When Professor Wheatstone invented the stereoscope, and, as far as vision was concerned, gave roundness and solidity to photographic pictures imprinted on flat surfaces, the effect was so wonderfully lifelike that we could not help regretting that what we saw was only an illusion of the sense, and that we could not transfer the rounded forms impressed upon our retinae to some durable and tangible ma- terial. The rigret of yesterday has, how- ever become the fact of to-day, and pho- tography, among its many gifts to the Arts, has lately invaded the studio of the sculptor, and put into his hands the means of transferring its images directly to his modelling clay, and of impressing upon it the subtle truth and fleeting beauty which the pencil of light is alone capable of fixing upon the delicate silver tablet. Those of our readers who are in the habit of attending scientific meetings cannot but have remarked the very beau- tiful statuettes, busts, and...

NAPOLEON'S LONDON EXPERIENCES. (St. James's Magzaine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

NAPOLEON'S LONDON EX PÉEIENCES. (St. James's Magzaine.) ..It is neither scandal nor secret that Louis Napoleon, when living almost by his wits in London, before his last suc cessfull visit to France, was occasionally ."hard up." He had now and then to raise money where and how he could, and this brought him in contact with the confederacy of bill-stealers known as "Richardson's gang." This gang though there was really but one princi- pal, the rest being subordinates-carried on their nefarious operations through the /medium of advertisements. They had ^establishments in Jermyn-street, in Cork street, and; indeed, in every locality where ' business was to be done. The following advertisement attracted the future French Emperior's notice : -_ " Pecuniary Ac commodílTION.-A company of capitalists are how prepared to make advances to 'noblemen and gentlemen in want of tem- porary accommodation^ to any amount on -their own personal security. Only princi- pals will be treated with. Apply t...

GETTING UP WOOL FOR THE MARKET. (FROM THE MARK-LANE EXPRESS) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 14 April 1865

GETTING UP WOOL FOR THE MARKET. (from the mark-laite express") The question whether wool should be washed on the back of the sheep is we perceive, just now attracting attention among the New Zealand sheep-farmers,, and the due preparations of wool for mar- ket is certainly one of the first impor- tance to the colonists. Complaints dur- ing the last dozen years have been annually made, in the principal wool broker's reports, and that Australian clips are not sent to market in so clean a condition as those which came to hand for years previous ; and certainly New Zealand wools will not improve the char- acter in that particular, unless the mat- ter mends. So far from feeling disposed to have their fleeces washed clean, many new fledged flock owners intentionally half wash out the extraneous matter, and they say that this addition of earthy matter and old yolk, by increasing the weight, will pay them better than the cleanest wool they can send to London or Liverpool. This novel doctrin...

Äürmirotttoettx*. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIR,-"JTour contemporary the Govern- ment Organ, in its issue of this day, dis- cussing the correspondence between the Government and Lloyd's Agent, begs the question, which was not who was to blame for the stranding of the David and Jessie, as I understand it, but "the very unsatisfactory reply in the first letter, from the Colonial Secretary, to the re- monstrance against the usuage of the Port-charging for outward Pilotage and furnishing no outward Pilot. The Go- vernor, through the Colonial Secretary, says he is " not of opinion, that any other steps than those adverted to by the Har- bor Master can be adopted." Now what does that amount to, except that the means allotted to the Harbor Master for the performance of the duties of his de-1 partment, are not sufficient to enable him to provide for all the services for which ships visiting the Port are com- pelled to pay for in advance. Why can- not those duties be...

GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 April 1865

GREAT BRITAIN. THere is but little news from England. Par- liament was opened on the 1st of February, with a royal speech containing the usual amount of nothingness, and Lord Derby's com- ments upon it had not much more pith. The debates in either house have been generally uninteresting^ with one or two exceptions. Her Majesty is said to have had a most miraculous escape from being crushed to death by the falling of a huge elm tree in the Home park. Her Majesty was taking an airing on her favourite little Scotch pony, and proceeding through the tall avenue of elms at Windsor known as Queen Elizabeth's Ride, the pony being led by a gillie, and a groom following at a short distance, when, fortunately and provi- dentially, the servant observed one of the large trees falling immediately over her'majesty. The groom, called out loudly, and Her Majesty, made aware of the danger by this timely alarm, escaped being crushed beneath the tree by a few yards only. The Queen and the Prince of Wal...
