CATHOLIC YOUNG MEN'S SOCIETY, PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 2 June 1864
CATHOLIC YOUNG MEN'S SO- CIETY, PERTH. ON Sunday evening last, a meeting of the Roman Catholic community in Perth was convened in the Boys' School Room, &nbsp; for the purpose of considering the advisa- bility of establishing, in Perth, a Catholic Young Men's Society; the object of which is "the mutual improvement of its &nbsp; Members and the extension of the Spirit of Religion and Brotherly love." On this occasion, an unusually large number attended, and everything passed off in a manner that could not but afford the greatest satisfaction to the well wishers of the Association. The Very Rev. M. Griver having been called to the chair, and having briefly stated the object for which the meeting had been convened, the following Resolutions were then duly proposed, seconded, and carried unani- mously :— Proposed by the Rev. M. Gibney, se- conded by Mr. J. T. Reilly :— That it is advisable to establish, in Perth, a Society to be called the "Perth Catholic Young &...

EXTRAORDINARY MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
EXTRAORDLNART MACHLNERT. " It is the belief of Mr. Whitworth that the superiority of all machinery is de- pendent on two elements-the power of measuring with unerring precision, and, associated with it, the faculty of pro- ducing a true plane surface, that is, one so absolutely level that, when opposed to another of equal truth, their contact must be in all parts complete. The As- tronomer Royal, Mr. Airey, in his evidence before a committee of the House of Lords, in 1855, stated that the degree to which Mr. Whitworth had succeeded in ' making perfect the planing of surfaces was entirely unknown before his time.' A plate of metal prepared by him, [ when opposed to the face of another similarly treated, exhibits a contact so intimate as to enable the operator to lift the under one with it, as if by its actual adhesion to the other ; or if less closely applied, so that the thinnest possible layer of atmospheric air may still remain between, the upper plate will rest on the unexcluded ...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
To THE EDITOR OP THE W. A. TIMES. . SIR,-Allow me to make an appeal to the Churchmen of the City, through the medium of your columns. I would beg of them, now that the question has been mooted, "Shall we have a Church Organ ?" not to let the matter drop. I am informed that our spirited townsman, Mr. J. Farmaner, has offered to obtain an Organ from England, and to let the Cathedral have it upon easy terms ; and I am told that our Bishop, at the meeting of pewholders on Tuesday, generously signified his willingness to subscribe ¿8100 towards an Organ Fund. A very good instrument can be bought at home for ¿8300. Let it be sent for at once, and if people do not subscribe liberally now, (which I think they wiE do) all that will toe necessary to induce them to give freely will be, to let them hear the dif- ference between it and the present mise- rable substitute. CHURCHMAN.
THE GLENELG EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
THE GLENELG EXPEDITION. WE are glad to announce the safe return of the New "Perseverance, with Mr. F. K. PANTER and his party. Although they made no discovery of gold (which was only expected by the most sanguine), they will be found to have added much to our geographical knowledge of the country on the north-west coast ; and the conductors of the expedition are well entitled to the acknowledgements of the public for the able and persevering man- ner in which the explorations have been carried out. It appears that the party penetrated about 90 miles into the inte- rior in the neighbourhood of Camden Harbour (the Glenelg country), and dis- covered a fine grassy country along the whole route. Pausing at Roebuck Bay on their return, they penetrated 50 miles inland, and were delighted with the abundance of the herbage and the supe- rior quality of the soil. They declare that they have seen, in the whole, five or six millions of acres of good land -far superior to the pasture lands of mo...

@%* êyux «um To THE EDITOR OP THE W. A. TIMES. SIE,-You have made two or three hits against the Bridge at North Fremantle, but, as usual, everybody is so inert, that they have led to nothing-although public opinion is strong against it. The boatmen, to whom it will be a great nuisance : the importers, and others interested in the traine of the river, to which it will be a great obstruction : and the Country Settlers, from whom it is draining money and labour that may be so much more usefully applied : are all equally careless and indifferent, and take no steps to even make their opinions known, or to endeavour to stop this work -than which, a more useless and un- necessary one could not be devised were the Executive designedly to meet for the purpose.

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
York. A large meeting of the most influential inhabitants of this neighbourhood was held on Saturday last, at the Castle Hotel, to consider the course of action which should be taken by the settlers in consequence of the stoppage of the Sandalwood trade and the serious aspect of affairs generally. The question of forming a large Export and Import Company was, we understand, mooted ; as well as the propriety of establishing a Bank in the town. Our knowledge of what took place at the meeting is at present very imperfect, but we are always glad to find the Yorkshire men active and stirring, for they are the leaven that often has set the mass of the colony working ; and even if they find it impossible to carry out the measures which appear.to them necessary, they challenge the attention of others at a distance, and indirectly become the originators of good, though they may not ao complish the result originally contemplated.

eux Cßimntg itarlu Tales for Country Headers. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. BY CHARLES EEADE, AUTHOR OF " NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND. (Continued.) CORPORAL PATRICK was correct in his details ; the Parish Register gave a very vague outline of Rachael Wright's history. Mr. Hickman had gone through the ceremony of marrying her ; nay more, at the time he had firmly intended the ceremony should be binding, for his wife lay dying a hundred miles off, and Rachael had at this period great expectations from her aunt, Mrs. Clayton. This Mrs. Clayton was the possessor of Bix Farm. She was a queer-tempered woman, and a severe economist ; this did not prevent her allowing Patrick and Rachael a yearly sum, which helped to maintain them in homely comfort. And she used to throw out hints that, at her death, the pair would be better off than other relations of hers who dressed finer and held then' heads higher at present. Unfortunately for Rachael this aunt was alive at the period when Hickman's bigamy was disco...
PERTH CITY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
PERTH CITT COUNCIL. A Special General Meeting of the Ratepayers of the City of Perth was held in the Museum Hall on Monday after- noon, for the purpose of electing two councillors in the room of Messrs. Carr and E. Birch, who had resigned. Mr. J. S. Chipper having taken the chair, the half-yearly accounts, duly au- dited, showing a balance in favour of the Council of ¿30 Os. 1d., were laid on the table, and passed by the meeting. Messrs W. Knight and A. J. Hillman were elected auditors for the ensuing half-year. The Chairman then intimated that the business of the Half-yearly Meeting was concluded ; they would therefore proceed with the business of the Special Meeting, viz., to elect two councillors in the place of the two who had resigned. Mr. B. Smith said he did not conceive how the Chairman could state that the business of the Half-Tearly Meeting was terminated, by merely laying before the ratepayers a balance-sheet - no doubt perfectly correct in itself and properly audited,-an...
West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JUNE 9, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
$ï*0t australia» ®i«u¡?. DISCITE JUSTITIAR, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THUESDAY, JUNE 9, 1864. THE Colony has for some time past been urged to try and get for itself a Eepre sentative Legislative Council. It certainly would in many respects be desirable for the Colony to have a more potent voice in the management of its -own affairs and if that would be the necessary conse- quence of adopting the course now sug- gested, we should freely accede to the measure. But the public must not be led away by a name, by a sound which professes to be a real boon and blessing, and which may yet amount to nothing worth having. The counsel so liberally tendered to us is well known to originate with one of the leading members of the Government, whose pluck (being much inferior to his prudence) leads him to favour anonymous literature, and only join in warfare when, like an ancient Demi-god, he has the convenient shelter of a friendly cloud. Advice from this quarter, though coupled with the promise of...
CHORAL HARMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
CHORAL HARMONY. EVEBTBODT knows how ungracious and unprofitable a task it is to try to please the public ; but when people make this attempt gratuitously, and from a land intention to contribute their services in a cause which is dependent upon such voluntary aid, it is becoming, even in cases of failure, to express our thanks to those who have done their best to give us satisfaction. Now, we cannot but feel that those ladies who for a longtime, and in spite of many difficulties, have perse- vered in trying to form a choir in the Cathedral Church, are well entitled to our grateful acknowledgements. The organist may be a clever musician and a pupil of Hullah; and yet the parties have always got on very ill together. That some amendment should take place was most desirable. Organist and singers are declared to be each good in them- selves, but the divine sounds of the in strument, though " married to immortal verse," produce no more harmony than is frequently found in other united but...
THE WORKING MAN'S ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
THE WORKING MAN'S ASSOCIATION. IN another column we give a brief record of the opening of the Reading-room rented by the Association. Many of the members who will frequent this room are ticket-of-leave men, and probably this class will conceive from our article in last week's issue that we are hostilely disposed towards it, because we shew that the time is approaching when there must inevitably be a large supply of cheap labour in the Colony. Now, cheap labour implies that the means of living must also be cheap ; for we do not suppose that men can work and live unless they are able to acquire by their labour the necessaries of life. What we have for some time past been striving to point out is, that by the cessation of Conditional Pardons we must inevitably, in process of time, accumulate -a large supply of labourers who cannot leave the Colony, and that the necessary and inevitable consequence of this step must be clieap labour. This is what the Home Govern- ment intends, and inten...

REPORT. Schooner New Perseverance, Fremantle, June 6, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
REPORT. Schooner New Perseverance, Fremantle, June 6,1864. SIR,-I have the the honour to forward the following Report, relative to the re- sults of an Expédition to the North-west Coast of Western Australia, under my command. On March 2nd, 1864,1 left Fremantle in the schooner New Perseverance, 105 tons, William Ousten, master. On the 3rd of April the vessel anchored in Breck- nock Harbour, after a tedious passage of one month's duration, owing to light and contrary winds. The only incident worthy of notice on the passage up was the discovery of a reef, extending six miles S.S.E. from Caffarilli Island, in long. 123deg. llmin.,lat. 16deg. This reef was discovered by the vessel running on it during the night of the 28th of March last. In the course of a few minutes the vessel was " backed" off, and anchored in 25 fathoms of water, about half-a-niile south of the place on which she struck. The following morning the wind rose to the force of a hurricane, blowing from the S.S.E., and la...
MR. F. K. PANTER'S LOG-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 9 June 1864
MR. F. K. PANTER'S LOG-BOOK. We give, below, a copy of Mr. Panter's Report to the government. By the kindness of his Excellency the Go- vernor, who has endeavoured to give all the public journals the means of making immediate acquaintance with Mr. Pan- ter's news, without favour or preference, we are enabled to take a glance at the Log of the Expedition kept by that gentleman. They sailed on the 2nd of March, and on the 22nd dropped anchor off Bedoubt Island, where they found a pole stuck in the ground, and at its foot a bottle containing a letter to " Walter Padbury, Esq.," informing him that the Mystery had touched there on 23rd July, 1863. On March 28th, passed the Lace- pede Islands ; on the following day they struck on a hidden reef near Caffarelli Island, and had a narrow escape from destruction. On 3rd April, entered Cam- den Sound by the south passage, and in less than two hours dropped anchor in Brecknock Harbour, which leads into Camden Harbour. There are numerous small is...
