Arrival of the Mails. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 April 1865

imvalof the Mails. THE Mails from the, Eastern Colonies were; received in Perth on Saturday afternoon'; -those from Europe"and India did not arrive until Tuesday evening, the delay having been caused by the steamer breaking-her main shaft five or six days " previous to her! reaching the Sound, into which harbor she was towed by the South Australian mail steamer Wonga , Wonga, into which'vessel the mails and passengers for the ' other colonies were transferred. The principal intelligence relating to this colony is that referring to Transpor- tation, in'reference to which Mr. Card- well, on the 10th Feb., in the House of Commons, said " the Government would introduce a Bill for the total discontinu- ance of transportation to the colonies, and the papers oi\ tbe".table shewed, the time within which the necessary arrange- ments could be made in this country for carrying it into effect should not exceed three years."

MR. HARGRAVES IN TASMANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 21 April 1865

MB. HABGEAVES IN TASMANIA. «GOLD with us islike hope inPandora's box. It still lays at the bottom. We keep pour- ing out nrst one thing then another, but fail in our attempts to secure that most sought to be desired. But that gold is here, we are quite certain. To few parts of the island can we turn without proofs of the fact that it is more or less aurifer- ous, and in some parts particularly so. We knew this before we sent for Mr. Hargraves to search for it, and we had no other object in sending for that gentleman than that he should point out to us where he thought it most likely that a paying gold-field would be found. East, west, north, or south was all alike to us, so that success crowned his efforts. But we have not yet heard anything from that gentleman that we did not already know. On the northern side of the island, Mr. Hargraves has now spent three months. Of the Fingal quartz reefs, he found ample proofs of all that had been previ- ously reported. Beefs quite equal to so...

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

VICTORIA. Reports from the sea leads to the im- pression that the Shenandoah is still hovering off the Australian coast. Mr. William Nicholson, who was Chief Secretary of Victoria in 1859 and 1860, died on the 10th instant. This gentle- man was attacked by paralysis in January 1864, and then retired into private life. It was at the instance of Mr. Nicholson that the ballot became the mode of voting at our Parliamentary elections. The age of the deceased gentleman was forty-nine. An organized endeavour to explore the deep sea fisheries of the coast is about to be made. Government are willing to give money and the use of a cutter in the aid of this object. Diphtheria has been prevailing exten- sively of late, both in Melbourne and the provinces. Two of the men prosecuted by the Crown for attempting to join the Con- federate vessel Shenandoah, were tried at the criminal sittings of the Supreme Court on the 17th and 18th inst. James Davidson, alias "Charley," was pro- nounced guilty of ...

?axxt$$i!ïtbtvttt. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-Tour printers made the devil's own mistakes with our letters, but we fear it may have been our fault not theirs. We ought to have made our scarwl rather more legible. However in the main they gave the substance correctly enough so we can't much complain. Well, Sir, to resume the theme of Port grievances, notwithstanding the extreme ab- surdity, as our friend the Harbor Master would have it, of our complaints regarding the Buoys and Beacons; it seems he has found out that it may be just as well to put a mark on the dangers outlying Kingston Spit, the which dangers he seems also all at once to have discovered do not exactly lie quite out of the course of vessels entering and leaving the port. We may now perhaps in time expect to hear of marks also on the dangers in the South channel, and thus we shall not have entirely failed in our object in begging yon to publish the correspondence ; only, as we like to go on ...

Arrival of the " Tien Tsin." DISASTROUS INTELLIGENCE FROM CAMDEN HARBOR MESSES. PANTEE, HARDING AND GOLDWYEE, KILLED BY THE NATIVES. THE Tien Tsin arrived on Wednesday evening from Camden Harbor and Tien Tsin Bay, having left the former place on the 20th March and the latter on the 8th Inst. On the voyage up a new Island was discovered directly in the track, in Lat. 15deg. 32-35 South, Long. 123deg. 45-45 East, and named Expedi- tion Island. We have been favored by the Govern- ment with the following very interesting Report from Mr. Sholl, the Resident at Camden Harbor. It gives but a gloomy picture of the state of affairs, borne out by the fact that 52 of the intending settlers have come down in the Tien Tsin, in addition to 20 who had previously left in the Stag. The crew of the wrecked ship Calliance have also been brought down. Government Resident's Office, Camden Harbour, March 17, 1865.

LONDON WOOL REPORT. FEBRUARY 25. 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 April 1865

XQNDOX WOOL REPORT. FEBBTJABY 25.1865. There has been a fair enquiry since our last report of most descriptions of colonial wool. Medium Sydney and low priced Cape have sold at an advance on November rates of about Id. to in some instances l|d. advance. The announcement of the sales to commence on the 2nd of March has for a moment checked business, all parties preferring to wait till the opening of the first series of the year. There will be a good show of Fort Phillip of the new clip, which, so far as the samples have been seen, show well) the only fault being shortness of staple, and a greater prevalence of burrs than last year. It is not expected there will be any advance in prices'. Bradford'trade is dull, and evenln the Leeds and Huddersfield markets there is less buoyancy than was exhibited a few weeks since. 'The arrivals to date are-9854 bales, Sydney?; 89,391 bales, Port Phillip ; 304 bales, Yan Diemens Land; 142 bales, "New Zealand; 6101 bales, Adelaide ; 53 bales. Swan Ri...

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 April 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) THE clothes of a man, who is supposed to have lost himself and died in the bush about 12 months ago, were found a few weeks past at no' great distance from the north road, and some few miles from Mr.. J. Purser's sheep-station, Mardale. A man in the employ of Mr. James Clinch, lost himself whilst seeking his bullocks, about a week ago ; natives were sent in search of him and succeeded in discovering his tracks, but up to the date of this nothing has been heard of him : the District Constable is also out looking for him. The natives at the north end of this district are becoming very troublesome ; robbiug huts, &c, which they do with impunity, owing to the Police being statioued at the south end ot the Plains, a distance of 30 or 40 miles, and set- tlers would sooner be at the loss of a few pounds of flour, &c, than go to the trouble and expense of sending that distance for the constable.

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 April 1865

ToLtheBditorpfthe Perth.GazetiegW.A. Times. SIR,-Mr. Sholl, in his report to the Gover- nor, dated 17th March last, attributes the deaths among the sheep shipped on board the "Tien Tsin," "to an insufficient supply of water, and to want of ventilation." I would remark on this that the sheep were supplied with one quart of water per diem, in- stead of one pint as stated by Mr. Sholl; and as regards the arrangement of the vessel's hold, or the placing of the stock, I had nothing to do with that ; if I had had the arrangement I should have placed-in fact as far as I was concerned intended to place-the sheep where Mr. Sholl remarks they ought to have been placed, that is, abreast the main hatch over the space allotted for horses, and certainly should not have im- peded the ventilation by placing a bulkhead across the hold abaft the fore hatch ; this I par- tially removed when in the tropics. I am, Sir, ^ Your obedient servant, J. T. JARMAN. Fremantle,'April 26, 1865.

The Island is about, fifty feet in height, giving a probable elevation of thirty feet at high water.

TTTHEELER & WILSON'S PATENT VV LOCK-STITCH SEWING MACHINES, For families and manufacturers, are vastly superior to all others. As evi- dence of the fact, they were awarded the Prize Gold Medal at the Great Exhibition 1862, and at the Paris Exhibition 1861. These machines make the tight lock stitch-the only one which cannot be ravelled-with ' the rotation hook-a great improvement on the shuttle, as it is far more durable, and not so liable to get out of order. Wheeler and Wilson's machines work equally well upon silk, cotton, woollen, and linen goods, braiding binding, cord- ing, tucking hemming, filling, gathering, seaming, o^ùilting,performingevery species of sewing with a speed of from 1,000 to 12,000 stitches per minute; makes a regular, strong, and beautiful stitch, exactly the same on both sides of the fabric sewed ; is simple in construction, easy of management, and elegant in ap- pearance.

Wilson, of Cam- den Harbor, and to say that from commence- ment to end it is a fabrication of falsehoods; statements unworthy of credit ; and then sign my name. But, as I am a stranger in a strange land, unknown, and where Mr. Wilson's veracity must, till proved, stand equal to my own, I must therefore take his letter and answer seriatim its more prominent features. I commence then by saying that two horses were drowned in their landing and one died on her way to grass. Hext he dates his letter 24th December, 1864, and says " and as to the sheep ; there died only one hundred and sixty-nine." Now at this date the Calliance, ship, had not arrived at Camden Harbor, and without her list of deaths, those of the barques Stag and Helvetia would not have made up the nu...
