FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 5 May 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own 'Correspondent.) The Amateur and Camden went round to Ca- reening Bay, Garden Island, on the 28th, to caulk and repair. I hear, the former vessel has more ore on board than her registered tonnage, and will discharge, part of it here. The Sea Nymph returned from the Vasse on Sunday, and will take in passengers for South Australia. She has all her accommodation engaged. The Warrior, chartered . by- the Dennison Plains Company, of Melbourne, dropped anchor on Tuesday, en toute to Camden Harbor with passengers and stock. She started with 2100 sheep, 40 horses, and 17 cows, of which 60 sheep, and four horses were lost during the voyage up -an increase however having occurred to the horned stock. I believe it has been arranged that she will not go now to Camden Harbor, but to Roebuck Bay, where_ she will land her stock, which will be driven over to the Denni- son Plains. An American whaler, the Roman, followed the Warrior till just inside Rottnest. She lowered a b...

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 5, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 5 May 1865

fSertfe eutfttt * H. %. %\m%. Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakspeare. ^BIDATTHAT 5, Ï865Ï FOB many years the war cry of stock owners has been a want of country for their flocks, and a constant demand for the despatch of exploring parties to dis cover new lands for their occupation, and we have little doubt there are yet many of them who still believe themselves to be cramped for want of room. It was then with no little surprise when, a few dayssinceweheardfromtwoorthreegentle menwell acquaiuted with the colony from north to south, and with all the runs as yet taken up, that the real want of the colony was not space to run more flocks, but want of capital and stock to occupy that which might be found by any person who would take the trouble to look for it in various localities mentioned, all of which are within one hundred miles of the sea-coast. One of the gentlemen in question asserted that he could at the present...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 May 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) There was a Cricket Match on Saturday afternoon, in the recreation ground-the first half of the alphabet-of the Fremantle Cricket Club against the latter half,-I am unable to give the score, as the elevens were not com- plete, one player had in one or two instances to do double duty. The X T Z's were however the victors, which by the way they were in a similar match in November last. " On the same day the Kestrel returned from Tien Tsin Harbor, bringing very favorable ac- counts. She lost but two sheep on the way down, and found the stock at the different stations there thriving and looking well. * On Friday we had a little excitement in the way of a fire at the Convict Establishment. About 10 a.m. the alarm bell at the prison was rungj^md the Pensioners' bugle sounded. Of course nobody down the town knew the cause of the alarm, and everyone was in the greatest state of excitement as to what could be " the matter." People flocked in dozens up...

DR. HUNTER ON THE THROAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 May 1865

DR. HUNTER ON THE THROAT. Sore throat is a familiar term, used to designate all affections of the fauces with- out discrimination. The fauces, or throat, is that cavity above and behind the root of the tongue which is seen on directing the patient to open wide the mouth. It comprises the whole space, from the pos- terior nares down to the entrance into the windpipe. The parts liable to disease are, first, the mucous membrane and the follicles, or little glands, which in health secrete the lubricating mucus; second, the uvula, or pendulous part which hangs down from the curtain of the palate ; and third, the tonsils, which are liable to in- flammation, ulcération, and chronic en- largement. The most common form of throat af- fection is what is known as granular sore throat. It is called granular, because little points or granulations areseen scat- tered over the surface of the mucous membrane. These little elevations are caused by the enlargement and disease of the mucous follicles. ...

IN MEMORIAM MESSRS. PANTER, HARDING, AND GOLDWYER, THE THREE EXPLORERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 May 1865

IN MEMORIAM.   MESSRS. PÀNTER, HARDING; AND GOLDWYER, THE THREE EXPLORERS. Land of the Swan! bow down thy head,   With tears bemoan thy hapless dead, Cut off from life, from home, from kin   By heathen ruffians steeped in sin. These hardy three went forth alone, To scour a land to them unknown, A field for enterprise. They reached this and looked around, And tho' no hopes their trials crowned, Their hearts still buoyant rise. Onward they pressed, these dauntless three, Onward still, their hopes still free, Far in the bush they pitch their tent, Their minds full on their mission bent. In fancy's eye this group we see, Seated by some afar off tree, Each on his work intent : Far in the gloom, far, far away, The dusky ruffians track their prey, Like bloodhounds on the scent. And there these gallant three did stand. Struggling with this savage band, 'Gainst fearful odds, they bravely fight. And put the savage foe to flight. Weary and wounded lay the...

Correspondence. To the Editor[?] of the Perth[?] Gazette & W. A Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 May 1865

Correspondence   To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W.A. Times SIR,-The Editor of the Inquirer informs his readers that the inhabitants of Perth will be pleased to hear that arrangements have been made by the City Council to extend the planting   of the Cape Lilac Tree. Now, without ap- pearing too inquisitive, and without wishing to lift the veil from the Editorial " we," I should be glad to know who is at present the Editor of the Inquirer? There is but little doubt that the inhabitants will be pleased, for every citizen loves to see his city ornamented, and rows of elegant trees look exceedingly pretty, and shady, and so forth ; but I am bold enough to assert that the greater number of our in- habitants prefer at the present time use to ornament, and that they would much rather see the Council and its Chairman carry out their bounden duties in accordance with the Perth City Improvement Ordinance, and see that the plans and estimates now before ...

AGRICULTURAL USES AND PROPERTIES OF COMMON SALT. (From the Mark Lane Express, Dec. 25.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 12 May 1865

AGRICULTURAL USES AND PRO- it PERTIES OF COMMON SALT. ti (From the Mark Lane Express, Bec. 25.) BY CUTHBEET W. JOHNSON, F.K.S. ol The use of salt on the farm has recently been discussed at a meeting of the members of the Royal Agricultural Society. This, although a very impor- tant inquiry, is attended with consider- able difficulties. Salt, like almost all other fertilizers, is not a manure adapted for all soils, and is commonly best used mixed with other substances. On light soils its good effects are generally con- siderable, and it has, on such lands, been very successfully used mixed with guano, soot, lime, ditch-scrapings, pond-mud, and farm-yard manure. The conclusion to which Professor Voelcker arrived from the result of his experiments are, I take it, not far from the truth, viz : " That in light and sandy soils salt was often, if not generally, used with very great benefit ; while on heavy soils it was attended with either no advantage whatever, or decided disadvantage. Am...

There is something grandly impressive in the profound silence which reigns over Manchester during the earlier hourb of the Sabbath morning.

It will be   seen by the extracts we publish from the Journals kept by the three unfortunate men, and apparently made up to the evening of their last day in this world, that at an...

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 19 May 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) Nothing, of a nature worthy of communi- cating, has occurred here since my last, with the exception of fights, numerous robberies, and a murder committed by the ' gentlemen of color,' into the details of which I will not enter, as my communications generally speaking consist of nothing but accounts of the natives' misdeeds, and the public hear enough of such things. The constable had the murderer in custody but he escaped and has not since been seen, though, at the time of his escape he was suffering from a spear wound, the spear having passed right through his loins. Immediately after the first rains a great number of galliuule, commonly called moor hens, collected at the spots where the young grass was springing, but they have now nearly all disappeared, having very probably returned to whence they caine, though where that may be I believe nobody knows. Some of our -push-a-long farmers took ad- vantage of the first rains to plough a g...
