The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 April 1864

The Open Column TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-In your contemporary's paper of Friday, the 15th instant, in an article under the head of "General lntelligence," he informs the public that Graham, who attempted to shoot Mr.   Quartermaine, has been captured." I think if the Editor had been in my place (returning home at night after a long journey and tapping at his bed-room window for admittance), and had received a charge of shot in the left side, as I did, he would speak more to the purpose on the subject; as, it is very well known that one of the cleverest and most confidential medical men in the Colony was called upon to attend me, and who, at the proper time and place, will give evidence that the charge was intended to effect bodily harm; had I not swerved, my lot would have been death. As the trial will soon take place, I hope the blood that was once warm will not cool, because I have partially recovered, and the man so easily captured. Had your contemporar...

BRITISH & FOREIGN Gleanings. THE NEW PENAL SERVITUDE BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 April 1864

BRITISH &> FOBEIG-N Gleanings. THE NEW PENÄL SERVITUDE BILL. The most important modifications in the present system effected by Sir George Grey's bill regard the length of the terms of penal servitude to which convicts may be sentenced, and the circumstances under which those terms may subsequently be abridged. The Commis- sioners suggested that the minimum term of penal servitude to which a minina! could be sentenced should be seven years, instead of being as at present only four. The Govern- ment, whilst acknowledging the expediency of increasing the present minimum, have, how- ever, fixed it at five years, instead of seven. In regard to the remission of sentence», the Go- vernment have admitted the expediency of holding forth some inducement to a prisoner undergoing penal servitude to submit with do- cility to prison regulations and to reform his life. It is provided by the new bill that it shall be discretionary with the authorities to remit a portion of the sente...

THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH COMMERCIAL TREATY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 April 1864

THE FRENCH AND ENGLISH COMMERCIAL TREATY. The debate in the French Legislative Chamber on the Treaty of Commerce with England has disclosed a statement of facts interesting alike to both nations, and has: conclusively established the ad- vantages of the principle of free trade. France has 38,000,000 of inhabitants, of whom 20,000,000 are agriculturists; there are 8,000,000 of workmen and 8,000,000 of persons devoted to the liberal arts-physicians, advocates, &c. ; the remaining 2,000,000 are employed in large manufactories and various branches of industry, and, so far as we can learn, few of them ask for protective duties. The results of the Treaty of Commerce with England have been most gratifying. The exports to England from 1827 to 1836 averaged 65 millions ; from 1837 to 1846, 27 millions; from 1847 to 1856, 239 millions ; in 1856, 591 millions; in 1862, 619 millions; and in the first eleven months of 1863, 706 millions; being an augmentation of 300 millions since 1859. ...

It is hot, and dusty, and muddy here ; and this opening of all the drains, which is to bridle all the disorders by-and-by, poisons us dead meanwhile, O Board of Health ! Come into the country ! In Oxfordshire, about two miles from the Thames, and on the skirts of the beech forest that lies between Walling- ford and Henley, stands an irregular farm- house ; it looks like two houses forced to pass for one; for one part of it is all gables, and tile, and chimney corners, and antiquity ; the other is square, slated, and of the newest cut outside and in. The whole occupies one entire side of its own farm-yard, being separated from the straw only by a small rubicon of gravel and a green railing ; though at its back, out of the general view, is a pretty garden. In this farm-house and its neighbour- hood the events...

hü %ntxümn färntt. DlSOITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. ' Bear and be JUST. THUESDAT, APBLL 28, 1864. ALTHOUGH HO actual good should arise out of all this discussion about a Sani- tarium, the Public will at least have the satisfaction of knowing 'something about the expenditure of the ninety-eight thou- sand pounds. A duly authorized official has kindly communicated to the Perth Gazette the paper placed in the GOVEB NOR'S hands by the Head of the Com- missariat Department, shewing how that sum is made up. Heaven forbid that we should quarrel with anybody for spending money in the Colony; we have au along asserted that this is the only solatium connected with the convict system, but as we believe there is very soon to be an end of it, we wished people to look out for something, however inadequate, in the.shape of a substitute. The Perth Gazette, on the above authority assures us that the whole of. the ¿698,657 " is ex " pended in the Colony ; not one farthing "of it refers to anything or any a...

COURT LIFE IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 April 1864

COURT LIFE IN ENGLAND AND FRANCE. A foreigner arriving in London from the brilliant city of Paris on the eve of Lent, must have been sadly impressed with the perceptible difference between the manners of the people of the two countries. The comparative dulness of English life has always been a fertile subject of discussion, and in an unpreju- diced examination of the general question it might perhaps be found that the amount of solid comfort and real enjoy- ment in this country, is not less than that of our more vivacious and ostentatious neighbours. At this particular time the dulness of English fashionable life is more conspicuous than it has ever been ; and the contrast presented by the two capitals is very striking. Paris has been a continual scene of gaiety, the Emperor and Empress setting an example of lavish expenditure upon their entertainments, which has been loyally imitated, and afterwards participating in the festivities of their high-placed subjects. The con- sequence i...

eux Muk prta. No. xxn. [Present-MB. MYTH, ME. WOBBLES, SPROUTS, and Miss CRUMP.] MR. MYTH-It is true, Madam, there has been no report lately of our Sittings, and the Public have been somewhat tumultuous in consequence. Our doors have been besieged by large bodies of rioters demanding compensation for the loss of the Back Parlour Reports. MR. WOBBLES-Some fellows said to me that they had no objection to receive compensation, but at the same time they .thought it were a good loss. MR. MYTH (warmly)-Those " fellows" Mr. Wobbles, were men totally devoid of understanding. At any rate, their men- tal calibre, Sir, was only on a level with your own. Excuse the personal reflec- tion. MR. WOBBLES - Don't mention it. Tour writers are so well laid into by the Noodles and Doodles, who scream and squeak according as their strings are pulled, that no doubt it is a pleasure for you to retaliate upon any one, however innocent he may be ; and I consider the observation I made was perfectly inoffen- ...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 May 1864

York. THE convict Graham was brought before the Resident Magistrate on Monday. He was committed to take his trial at the next Sessions at Perth, on a charge of shooting at Mr. Quartermaine, with intent to kill. He was also charged with robbing Mr. Sewell's shepherd, near the Hotham, of a double-barrel gun-sentence, 12 months' imprisonment; and a second charge of robbery, at Mr. Quartermaine's station at Yongup, for which he was sentenced to 3 years' imprisonment. The circum- stances of the last robbery are rather mitigatory. He took an overcoat, a kan- garoo rug, and a pair of boots, also, a small quantity of powder and shot ; he asked a man who was present for pen, ink, and paper ; he then sat down, and made over to Mr. Elijah Quartermaine, jun., master of the station (who happened to be away at the time), his watch and horse, in value about Í328; he said he did not wish to rob them of anything, and gave his own coat, rug, and boots, together with his watch and horse, for the thing...

Greenough Flats. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 May 1864

Greenough Flats (From a Correspondent.) SINCE the Governor's refusal to ap- prove of the appointment, by the Educa- tional Board, of the female teacher at this place, her retirement has met with ap- probation from some, and with regret from others. The office of School-instructor is again filled in the person of a single young man, who is supposed to teach a mixed school, the ages of the girls varying from five to fourteen years. The moral cha- racter of this young man is satisfactory, but his intellectual attainments are not thought so much of. Why are single young men appointed to teach young girls at all? Why are schoolmasters, who give general satisfaction, removed from one school to another? Why are not the Country Members of the Local Board, and the parents of the children at the Greenough consulted, before such an important appointment is decided on? Young girls cannot be allowed by their parents to be taught by such male teachers. The general dissatisfaction created by the B...

To the Editor of the Times. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 May 1864

To the Editor of the Times. SIB,-An article headed "Australia and New Zealand, from our own corres- pondent," having appeared in your edi- tion of Monday, the 11th inst., in which your correspondent has made statements regarding the transportation question which I know to be most incorrect, and as it is a matter of vital importance to both England and Western Australia, I trust you will, with your usual regard for truth and fair play, allow me, through the medium of your paper, to contradict it and place the truth before your readers. Tour correspondent says, " Again, ac- cording to a statement of Ex-Governor Kennedy, out of 2,583 prisoners in Western Australia there were 1,121 ac- counted for in 1860." Being desirous that the British public should not be misled by this incorrect statement, I waited on Governor Ken- nedy, who was just leaving for his new government of Vancouver's Island, and he gave me authority to contradict it. I have since referred to the printed report of Govern...

áwr (ßfyxmtity iÄ Tales for Country Headers. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. BY CHABLES EEADE, AUTHOR OF "NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND.' (Continued.) MRS. MATFIELD was away, and during her absence Hickman had not come once to visit his own farm or Hathorn's. This looked ugly. ' Wife,' said the farmer one day, ' what makes our Robert so moody of late ?' ' Oh, you have noticed it, have you ? Then I am right ; the boy has something on his mind.' ' That is easy to be seen, and I think I know what it is.' ' Do you, John ; what ?' ' Why, he sees this Hickman is in a fair way to carry off Rose Mayfield.' ' It is not that.' ' Why, what else can it be ?' .It is a wonder to me,' said Mrs. Hathorn, 'that a man shouldn't know his own son better than you seem to know Robert. They are very good friends ; but what makes you think Robert would marry her ? have you for- gotten how strict he is about women? Why did he part with Lucy Blackwood, the only sweetheart he ever had ?' ' Hanged if I remember.' 'Because she g...

%\t ©p« Mumu. COTTON-GROWING. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIB,-In your issue of the 17th March, you expressed a desire to hear from me on the cultivation of the Cotton-plant. I shall be very happy to give you any in- formation thereupon; premising, how- ever, that I had had no experience in Cotton-growing before I came to this Colony, and whatever hints I may give, or opinions I may express, must be taken as the result of my own experience during the last three years on the Greenough Flats (and which time I have devoted solely to the study of the plant), added to what I have gleaned from writers on the subject, emanating from good au- thorities. First, then, Cotton does not depend so much on soil as on climate ; it will grow on any soil, provided it be thoroughly pervious to water. Being a tap-rooted plant, it requires the soil to be soft enough to allow it to penetrate easily to a depth of about two feet. Not that I mean to imply the necessity of ploughing to that depth : in ...
