HORRORS OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN'S "EMANCIPATION." [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
HORRORS OP PRESIDENT LIN COLN'S "EMANCIPATION." The Hon. C. S. Morehead, èx-governor of Kentucky, is publishing, " A Plain Statement of Facts in relation to Slavery in the Southern States of America, in connection with the mili- tary Proclamation of President Lincoln." Go- vernor Morehead was, up to the time of the actual separation of North and South, a thorough Unionist. His statement, drawn from Northern" sources, speaks for itself:-" The breath of the President's proclamation has swept like a deadly sirocco over a large portion of the once beautiful valley of the Mississippi, leaving in its track one unvarying scene of devastation and ruin. The wretched blacks for whom it is pretended this desolation has been wrought where are they, and what has freedom done for them P General Grant answers from the banks of the Mississippi. From 'planta- tions stripped of everything they have come in to us utterly destitute, utterly ignorant. All the able-bodied among them are forced into the a...

A MARKET-PLACE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
A MARKET-PLACE. OUR attention has often been called to the inconvenience experienced by the inhabitants of Perth from the circum- stance of there being no public market in this metropolis. A market-place would be of no use, unless in a central position. There might be rows of stalls in Hay-street, at the back of the Cathedral, for which a very low weekly rent might be demanded ; and those who bring fowls and vegetables in baskets or carts should be allowed to do so without charge, so long as the ground is unoccupied by buildings. At present there is not a place whither you can send for a fowl or a cabbage. In Fremantle there are numerous vegetable stalls, but here those of the inhabitants who have not gardens of their own are dependent upon the calls of an occasional market-gardener. Let us hope that steps will be taken to establish a daily market for the smaller luxuries of life in this very lag-behind City.
LONDON WOOL REPORT. MARCH 24, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
LONDON WOOL REPORT. MARCH 24, 1864. The quiet tone which had prevailed in our market since the opening of the year had not led us to expect the satisfactory result of the sales which commenced on the 3rd, and closed yesterday. The quantities catalogued con- sisted of-Australian, 10,040 bales ; Port Phillip, 11,427 bales ; Van Dieman's Land, 525 bales ; Adelaide, 11,276 bales; New Zealand 1,766 bales; Cape, 18,958bales: total, 53,992 bales. The sales opened with a very large attendance of buyers, both home and foreign, and prices ruled about id. to Id. advance, which has been maintained throughout, the competiton being most animated throughout the entire series. The show of Adelaide has been very good, the condition and growth being very satisfac- tory ; for the Continent, the biddings for this description were very good, and about three fourths of the entire quantity went for export. Of the new Port Philip, many flocks show much improvement in breed and condition, and the prices pai...
Fremantle. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
Fremantle. &nbsp; GREAT affliction has been caused in a family much respected at Fremantle, by a calamity of no ordinary occurrence. A young gentleman, who had suffered some time ago from a sun- stroke, and whose mind was at times seriously affected, was found on Saturday last to have hanged himself in a loft on his father's premises. He was buried on Sunday morning, amid the sympathy of many of the inhabitants who at- tended his funeral. His bereaved mother gave birth to a girl as the funeral procession left the house.

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. AUTHOR OF "NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND." (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
®ut tö&itnws 'Büßt Tales for Country Headers. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. BY CHARLES EEADE, AUTHOR OF " NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND. (Continued.) WHEN he had so inspected him a little while, he turned to them all, and he said, in a deep and almost a stern voice, 'Hats off!' They all uncovered, and stood looking like stricken deer at the old soldier as he lay. The red jacket had nothing ridicu- lous now. When it was new and bright, it had been in great battles. They asked themselves now had they really sneered at this faded rag of England's glory, and at that withered hero ? ' Didn't think the old man was a going to leave us like that,' said one of these rough penitents, * or I'd never ha' wagged my tongue again un.' Mrs. Mayfield gave orders to have him carried up to her garret : and four stout rustics, two at his head and two at his feet, took him up the stairs, and laid him there on a decent bed. When Rachael saw the clean floor, the little carpet round the foot of the bed, the bright...
AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
AMERICA. At the beginning of March an opinion was in process of rapid formation among the Federals that disastrous failure, equally speedy and com- plete, had overtaken the spring campaign, both in Virginia and the west. The plan of these ill-starred enterprises seems to have been in substance as follows. ' The Federal General Sherman, and others holding commands in the army of the west, of which General Grant is the commander-in-chief, were to manoeuvre in such a way as to induce Confederate General Johnston to divide his forces by the necessity of covering the points threatened by the Northern troops. Admiral Farragut was to co- operate with his fleet, and make a demonstra- tion at Mobile to further distract the attention of the Confederates on the side of the coast. In concert with these movements, Federal General Thomas was to move upon Dalton and Atlanta with a body of 35,000 men. It was anticipated that General Johnston would divide his army to meet these several movements, an...

U%t fyuüxüxm %xmz%. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, Mourn, _Hear and be JUST._ THUESDAT, MAT 19, 186*7 THE Memorial to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, called forth by his late Despatches on the subject of Transporta- tion, has been numerously signed out of Perth and Fremantle, in the districts to which it has been submitted. Three out of four of the Members of the Legislative Council have signed it. Most of the Country settlers who reflect at all, are becoming aware of the perilous state in which they are placed by the withdrawal of Conditional Pardons; the effect of which must necessarily be to retain in the Colony, upon tickets-of-leave, a numerous body of the most hardened desperadoes in the world. Without increasing the free population there can be no sufficient employment for these men. They cannot be absorbed in our small community, but must remain a huge and festering sore upon the face of society. The object of the present Memorial is to draw attention to this fact, and to urge ...

Supreme Court. SPECIAL SITTINGS.-CRIMINAL SIDE. (Before His Honor the Chief Justice.) WEDNESDAY, MAY 18,1864. ON the application of the Attorney- ] General, on the part of the Crown, this day was specially appointed for the trial of William Graham, on a charge of shooting Mr. Elijah Quartermaine, a farmer in the York district, with intent to murder him. The prisoner was defended by Mr. E. W. Landor. The facts, as stated by the Attorney General, were briefly these : Mr. Quar- termaine left his abode on the other side of York on March 2nd, and went to Perth, but set out again on afternoon of 3rd, reaching home unexpectedly at 12 o'clock the same night. He went to his bed- room window, and stood two or three minutes listening ; heard a man cough in the adjoining room. He then tapped at his bed-room window, and gave a low whistle. On turning round, he saw a light in his sitting-room. Tried to see who was within, but could not for the blind. He again went to the bed-room window, tapped, ...
POST-OFFICE ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
POST-OFFICE ORDERS. THIS is another pressing want. It is almost impossible to collect small debts due from parties in remote districts, so long as they have the excuse that there are no means of forwarding the amount to the Capital. Many a small account is &nbsp; given up in despair from the difficulty of getting it transmitted. Why not en- deavour in small matters of public con- venience to place ourselves on a par with the rest of the world? We cannot un- derstand why the Postmaster-General should not be able to devise measures for the transmission of money from the interior to the metropolis by means of Post Office Orders ? We are told that he would require more clerks to enable him to do this. If this is the only reason for withholding a great convenience from the public, we do not understand its co- gency. Officials of much less importance in the eyes of the public than the Post- master-General obtain assistant clerks in their departments, and the public derive no benef...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Will you be so good as to inform me how it was that we received none of our English papers by the Perth mail on Wednesday ? We only knew of the arrival of the English Mail by the receiving a few-(private letters. I think when the Home Government and the Colony take so much trouble, and expend so much money in conveying our, papers with the greatest possible despatch, it seems most unaccountable to me that the Post- master-General did not detain the mail carrier for a few minutes longer, and not deprive us (for three long days) of the pleasure of the perusal of our papers and periodicals, which we have been expecting with so much anxiety. If euch a case as this occurred at home, or in any of the Eastern Colonies, the party who had shown so little considération for the in- terests and feelings of others, would most probably hear more about it than he is likely to do, when he only slights a few Country Settlers in Western Australia. But, Sir, I wo...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Your valuable paper impression dated April 21, 1864, contains a letter i signed " Geraldine," to whom I offer my humble thanks for truths, and correct statement of facts relative to roads, and their condition in this district of Cham- pion Bay. I trust that in his next he will note that the one mile of road, re- ferred to in his letter, is only one-third of a chain wide, except in front of pre- mises of a favoured few. A marked neglect is to be observed in front of the premises of the undersigned, besides obstruction raised by Government tram road to access to his business premises. The tram-road alluded to is not the iron one, having also thereon public trucks connecting certain business houses with the public jetty; and thereby to them securing a monopoly in shipping, to the great detriment of other shippers-an advantage never intended, I am sure, by those who conceded so great a boon. I could wish to know by whose in- spiration carts receivi...
The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 19 May 1864
®(]Í tityen Cílumit. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-In reading the West Australian Times of last month, I observed a remark in Mr. W. L. Brockman's letter to this effect : " Can we expect the same com- parative quiet and orderly state of things to prevail, now that the great stimulus to good conduct, the Conditional pardon, is removed ?" Well may such a remark as this be made, when, by painful expe- rience, it will be found that, instead of it answering a good end, opposite results will be the consequence. While the abolishing of this great privilege has been a sourceof great good to the Southern Colonies, it is, and will be, a great evil to the inhabitants of Western Australia. How can we expect such measures as these to be productive of any good, when no regard is paid to the feelings of those (however unworthy) whose punishment would be thought sufficient in being banished to this distant part of the world, from all that nature holds dear to them, without the additional p...

BRITISH & FOREIGN Gleanings. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 26 May 1864
BRITISH & FOREIGN Grleanings. A LOVE TRAGEDY.-George Hall, a jeweller's stamper, aged 22, was indicted for the murder of his wife at the "War- wick Assizes. He had previously borne the character of a steady, humane man, and had been married to the deceased on Christmas day. For some time pre- viously, and up to that day, she had " kept company" with a young man named Martin Joy, and on the evening of her wedding day she left her husband, and returned to her mother's house. The next day he took her back, but in a few days she left him again, and lived apart from him to the day of her death. Her mother testified that one night he came to the house, and was very low, and after sitting some time, and whispering to his wife, and leaning his head mournfully on her shoulder, he asked her to go out with him. She was going without her bonnet ; but he desired her to put on her bonnet ; and then she went out into the darkness with him. She was never seen alive again. He shot her on the...
