West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 May 1864

West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI.   Hear and be JUST   THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1864.   IN a Colony like ours, where so small an amount of public spirit is usually ex- hibited, associated bodies, having the good of the community for their object, are entitled to a high degree of con- sideration. The several Agricultural So- cieties are among the most valuable and useful institutions of the Country, and their opinions are no doubt entitled to weight in the estimation of the Govern- ment. There is another associated body called the "Chamber of Commerce," composed chiefly, if not exclusively, of men connected with the trade of the Colony, who, having a material interest in its prosperity, have some right to ex- press their sentiments upon all measures calculated to affect the general welfare. It is impossible for the Government to appeal to the opinions of private indi- viduals, and therefore whenever it has any question under consideration...

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

Fremantle.   A personage, well known in this town as Dr. Bruce, was found dead in his chair on Monday evening. He will be missed among the poorer classes, to whom he was kind and attentive, and who are much in want of the presence of a medi- cal man. The body of a man in a state of decom- position was found on Monday in Mrs. T. Brown's paddock, near Fremantle. It was recognized as that of Sergeant Sutton, of the Pensioner Force, who left his home about ten days ago in the afternoon tell- ing his wife he meant to take a walk in the bush. He never returned. An in- quest has been held upon the body, but we have not heard the verdict of the Jury. A correspondent writes: — Our old friend Mr. Hancock made his first ap- pearance this season on Tuesday evening, at the Assembly Room, Freemasons' Hotel, before a large and delighted au- dience, the room being crowded. The pieces selected for the entertainment being "Slasher and Crasher," the "American Mail Bag," and "Boots at the ...

The War in New Zealand. EVACUATION OF MAUNGATAUTORI. [From the Argus Correspondent.] Auckland, April 6. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 May 1864

The War in New Zealand. EVACUATION OF MAUNGATAUTOEI. [From the Argus Correspondent.] Aiinlrlnnd Anrîl R Stirring events have occurred since my last letter was written. I told you in it all that was then known, viz., that Colonel Carey had attacked Orakau pa on the 31st ult., that he had been repulsed, and had commenced sapping it, with the intention of blowing it up. Since then the scene has been played out, but not with such a tragical end as might be supposed, the rebels, instead of being blown up, having escaped at the last moment. Our loss has been very severe, and poor Captain Ring, whose name has been so interwoven with the present war as to have an historical pre-eminence, was mortally wounded, and has since died. To give a brief history of the assault and evacuation of the pa. On the 30th ultimo the natives were observed constructing a fortifica- tion three or four miles beyond Kihi Kihi. It was, of course, previously known that some of the rebels had retreated after the eva...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 May 1864

York. AT a meeting of the Agricultural Society on Saturday last, they came to the conclusion that a large expedition should be got up, and the Committee have written to ask the Toodyay Society to join them in starting it on a scale of importance. We have had most delightful rains lately; the grass is growing very fast, the farmers are all busy with their ploughs, and the season promises to be good.

Greenough Flats. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 May 1864

Greenough Flats. (From our own Correspondent.)     HEAVY rains a few days ago came to cheer the drooping hearts of the sheep-farmers and corn-growers, and its abundant fall has set many ploughs to work. Much wheat has changed hands through the season at 4s. in the mill here, and 4s. 6d. at the port for cash transactions. It has lately risen 6d. per bushel. Sellers hold back, expecting a further rise, but little, if any, remains unbar gained for. Barley and oats continue the same in price, viz., 4s. at the port warehouse door.

' If you are busy, don't let me stop you, you know,' said Hickman, awkwardly and confused, and, like one with no great resources, compelled to utter something. Then Rachael, white as a sheet, took up her basket again, and moved away in silence ; the young farmer eyed her ap- prehensively, and, being clearly under the influence of some misgiving as to her in- tentions, said, 'If you blow me it will do me harm and youno good, you know, Rachael. Can't we be friends ?' ' Friends !-you and I ?' . Don't be in such a hurry-let us talk it over. I am a little better off than I used to be in those days.' ' What is that to me.'

©u* §uk axiaux. No. xxm. {Present-MR. MYTH, and Ov/r Poet SPROUTS.] MR. MYTH-I am told, Sprouts, that the City of Perth is so extremely anxious for a Sanitarium, that there is no doubt of its being established, within a reasonable space of time, between the two jetties, where the most healthful breezes are to be inhaled every summer afternoon. SPROUTS-My Aunt, Sir, is of opinion that if people are allowed to play at skit- tles, bowls, or quoits, disagreeable lan- guage might be used, which would en- tirely .destroy her pleasure. She is de- lighted to find that everybody is so eager for the Sanitarium, but she thinks it must be managed under certain restric- tions. MB. MYTH-When people meet for re- creation, which is the true mode of pre- serving health, they must do something. Would she object to the innocent pastime of " Kissing in the Ring ?" SPROUTS-Oh, of course she would. She had a dreadful fainting fit when she accidentally saw them playing at it some time ago in the Governmen...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI   Hear and be just.   THURSDAY, MAY 12, 1864.     WE are given to understand that the Legislative Council is to meet some time next month, but for what purpose has not yet transpired. Let us hope that it is not with the object of passing laws. Of these we have already enough. It has of late years become a favourite idea with our law-makers that those modern enact- ments which are called forth by the com- plicated relations of society in England are equally suitable to us, whose social state is more on a par with the times of the Plantagenets. Every part of the British Isles is in immediate communica- tion with every other part. Railroads and electric telegraphs bring the most distant portions of the realm into the most rapid intercourse with the me- tropolis. Here we are in a Country wholly devoid of railways or telegraphs ; without steam communication of any kind ; without mail-coac...

Pinjarrah. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 May 1864

Pinjarrah. AN accident occurred here last week of a rather unusual character. Whilst the mounted troop of Volunteers were at drill, a horse took fright at the flash and glitter of the sabres, and bolted off the parade-ground. The rider, Mr. - Thomas, who is Secretary to the troop, threw himself off the terrified animal, but in so doing his sabre got between his legs, and the right limb was unfortunately broken above the ankle. We are happy to add that he is going on favourably, under the care of Mr. T. F. Beding- feld.

The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 May 1864

The English Mail REACHED Perth on Tuesday, at noon, being the day on which it was due. The news is not important. We give extracts below from the Home News : - THE WAR IN SCHLESWIG. The fire of the Prussian troops on Düppel appears to have gone on regularly for some time. In military circles at Berlin some impa- tience begins to be felt at the delay in the operations. More than a month, it is observed, has elapsed since the allied troops have been before Düppel, and yet the cannonade against the fortifications has only just commenced. In the opinion of many Prussian officers one week at most was required to invest the for- tress; consequently three have been lost, and the delay has had no other result than to allow the Danes to complete their works, which were before sufficiently formidable. What tends still more to increase the bad humour of the Prussians is the fact that the Austrian army alone has hitherto distinguished itself, and that the Prussian troops have had nothing to boa...

ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864

ATLANTIC TELEGRAPH. -?-fc ? ?? ? ..i -...».v x11» ??! \A J.VJA.M. Alt The attempt to lay a telegraphic cable acrosB the Atlantic is to be renewed in the summer of next year. The Atlantic Telegraphic Company has, under the most discouraging circumstances, steadily kept the object in view, and yesterday an agreement was finally entered into between the company and Messrs. Glass and Elliott for the manufacture and submergence of the cable. The Great Eastern steamship has been pur- chased mainly with a view to its being em- ployed in the carrying and laying of the cable, and a very confident opinion, founded on large experience, is now entertained that the great work will be brought to a successful termi- nation. In the construction of the telegraphic cable, the great and difficult problem to solve was how to arrange the various parts so as to prevent any strain upon the " core," or portion along which the electricity has to pass. There are Borne portions of the Atlantic where the depth...

BRITISH & FOREIGN Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864

BRITISH & FOR-EIOST Gleanings. Of all the questions that come before the House of Commons, there is not one of them that they are more concerned in than the question of their dinner. A glance at the politics of the kitchen will not, therefore, be without interest. Last year a rebellion broke out in the kitchen department, and King Steers, the cook, was sent about his business. In casting about for a successor, the kitchen committee heard of one Short. He had been steward, or chief butler, or head cook to an ecclesiastical dignitary-an archbishop or a bishop; and, knowing that church dignitaries, from the Pope downwards, are famed for their taste in all matters gastronomical, the com- mittee thought that they had secured a great prize, and siezed hold of Mr. Short and installed him at once. In the vacation King Short set to work ; and with the aid of a facile board of works, remodelled his kitchen at a cost of some £2,000 and, of course, with such a potentate and such a remod...

THE POLISH INSURRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864

THE POLISH INSURRECTION. .VA«. Nothing can be more mournful or more utterly desolate than the present state of un- fortunate Poland. It is closed hermetically on every side ; all commerce is stopped, and people are not allowed to go a mile from their residence without a passport. Villages destroyed and burnt, fields turned into rude cemetries for Polish corpses, women assaulted,-by a brutal soldiery, even children of 10 years old outraged and killed ; such are the sights that now meet the eye of the traveller in Poland. As for Warsaw, it is a large prison, haunted by endless patrols, and without any sign of life or move- ment. The churches are mute, and the houses shut up all day and all night. Even lights appearing at the windows are dangerous, for they excite the attention of the police, and may lead to a domiciliary visit, or, in other words, to an unscrupulous and shameless search in every corner of the house, and often to the finding of some prohibited tool which an un- friendl...
