MR. HARGRAVES IN TASMANIA. (Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

MR. HARGRAVES IN TASMANIA. (Mercury.) The worst fears of the least sanguine have been realised in reference to Mr. Hargraves and his goldfields exploratory tour. We might as well have made " ducks and drakes" of the money that has been laid out upon him, on the Der- went or the Tamar for the amusement of bye-standers. He has done no more than any set of boys turned out from school with their geological hammers at the holidays, would have done by chip- ping the¡¡¡various rocks that came in their way. Not one new fact has he brought under our notice, nor, truth to tell, did any one that sees farther than his nose, after getting a first sight of that gentle- man, expect anythiug veiy different. Mr. Hargraves went first to Fingal, and kept " pottering" about the reefs there for a month or six weeks, without telling us half as much about them as we knew before. Tired of that sort of work, the Launceston Committee sent him to the Bla^k Boy, where he continued for an- other month of six we...

THE LAST HARVEST IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

THE LAST HARVEST IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We regret to find that the anticipa- tions of a serious deficiency in the yield have been fully realized, the late harvest having only given an average of 11 bushels per acre, or 3 bushels less than last year. With the exception of the season 1859 60, the yield per acre of the late harvest is lower than any other of the last seven years. Fortunately the increased area placed under crops turns out to be greater than was expected, amounting to 16 per cent. ; the breadth of land sown with wheat being 890,714 acres, as compared with 335,758 acres in 1863. 4. In each county there was an increased cultivation, the additional acreage under crop vary- ing from 18,035 acres in the County of Light to 3,112 acres, in County Grey -in the former case snowing an increase of 16 per cent., and in the latter of 44 per cent, on the area shown in the pre- vious season. Even the old settled dis- tricts, which showed last year a consider- able falling off, have this ...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) The Flying Foam arrived at this port on the 18th instant from Fremantle, en route to Port Gregory, with a party of whalers, and to the annoyance of all, and inconvenience of many, did not bring a mail, although at the time of her leaving Fremantle the English mail had then been in Perth four days and, we down here are told, was in Fremantle, detained for the Fitzroy, but by whose authority is not yet known. If we acknowledge the general principle that " no news is the best of news," we cannot grumble, but when every one has more or less at stake depending on the regular arrival of the mails, it is to be hoped that we may not be treated in this way again, without good reasons can be given for the delay. The Fitzroy arrived on Saturday, the 20th, and only just in time, as a regular north-wester set in soon after her anchor- ing. " It is an ill wind that blows no one any good," and we are exceedingly ob- liged to the winds that blew Mr. Phelp...

?QVX moni crut. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ftW.A Times SIB,-I beg you will favor me by giv- ing publication to the following in your next issue : Captain John Oliver, of the Clarence Packet, seems to have found in my journal of a late expedition to the North-West, a cap which he thought was made to fit some one. From his letter, which bears no date, but which appealed in the i» quirer and Commercial News of this day, I infer that he tried it on, andfoundit to fit him exactly, but its shape being inele- gant and its set not jaunty, he has tried to make up for its defects, by taking it off gracefully with a haughty bow to the world-publicly disowning through the medium of a newspaper, the ugly and un- profitable article he himself took pos- session of. What does Captain Oliver want? does he wish me to express myself to the; world, with regard to him, as plainly as I may have often done to himself, to enter into particulars and prove cases of past incompetency for "coasting dut...

NEW ZEALAND.—CRITICAL ASPECT OF AFFAIRS. [From the Correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald.] Auckland, April 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

NEW ZEALAND.-CRITICAL AS- PECT (W AFPATRS. [From the Correspondent of the Sydney Morning Herald."] Auckland. Anril 1. The news I have to send you by this mail is far more unfortunate than any I have had in my budget for many months. To give a really true view of our position. I must go a little beyond the surface ap- pearance of things here. My deliberate opinion, which I may say is that of those persons whose opinions are of most value in the matter, is that the present is the very darkest and most threatening time which this island has yet seen. One principal cause for this, no doubt, is that the Government, which insisted upon leaving this end of the colony at so criti- cal a time, has not been able, it would seem, to. appreciate the extent of the dan- ger. This danger arises in part from the very slow and inefficient progress of operations-at Wanganui, which has as- suredly had the effect of greatly enourag ing the rebellious natives in every part of the country, and being attri...

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, JUNE 2, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

Icrtl? êajettc * SB. i. Struts. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-SJidkspeare. The occurrence yesterday of the thirty fifth anniversary of the foundation of this colony, although not marked, at least in the metropolis, by any signs of rejoicing, finds the province in a very different and, we believe, far more promising condition, than on any previous anniversary we could ever congratulate ourselves upon. The past year has been fruitful of im- portant incidents, which will make it stand out in bold relief to all that have gone before, and if that we have now entered upon be but as fully marked with proofs of progress, there is every reason to believe the colony will speedily emerge from obscurity, and be reckoned among the valuable dependencies of the British Empire, and the home of a prosperous community. We have, in years gone by, often had hopes of " a good time coming," but unfortunately, those hopes were founded u...

York Agricultural Society. The Quarterly Meeting of the York Agricultural Society was held at the Cas- tle Hotel on Saturday, the 13th ultimo ; J. "W. Parker, Esq., in the chair ; who having opened the meeting, the Secre- tary stated that there were two matters which had stood over from the Annual Meeting, in which nothing had been done. One was a proposition from Mr. Brock- man, to petition the Government to place the management of mails in the rural districts in the hands of the settlers ; and the other had reference to the protection which was offered to the settlers in the rural districts, both of which subjects had been referred to special committees. Mr. S. S. Parker, said-In the prospect of a representative Government being es- tablished, it was considered better to allow the matter of the roads > to remain until it could be brought before that assembly ; and that some steps having been taken by the government with regard to pro- tection, the interference of the committee ...

DR. LEICHHARDT AND PARTY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 2 June 1865

DR. LEICHHARDT AND PARTY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE AUSTRALASIAN. SIR,-On various occasions for a number of years past I have expressed a conviction that Dr. Leichhardt might be alive. When in Sydney five years ago, I spoke to some of his friends and sup- porters on the subject of attempting to make an effort to find out what had be- come of him. Deep sympathy in refer- ence to his fate was expressed, and a few intimated their willingness to join in bearing the expense of a further search for him. Nothing, however, was done. Since the present movement was first started in Melbourne, at the instance of Dr. Mueller, I have intended to offer my opinion on the subject, but want of leisure, and a doubt as to how it might be received, prevented me. I have read all that Dr. Leichhardt has written and all that has been written by others in reference to his travels, as well as the reports made by those who since his last departure to cross the continent from east to wes , have been sent to learn ...

THE INFLUENCE OF THE ATMOSPHERE ON VEGETATION. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

THE INFLUENCE OF THE ATMO- SPHERE ON VEGETATION. (Australasian.) In connexion with the subject of ma- nures, it is very necessary to consider the part played by the atmosphere in the nu- trition and growth of plants. It has been Trfföwn for some time that the great bulk of all vegetable matters is derived from the carbonic acid in the air, and that rain washes down to the soil in the course of the year nearly as much ammonia as many plants require for the perfection of their growth ; but several points have yet to be cleared up, and are still the object of investigation. The action of the at- mosphere, both directly on growing plants through their leaves, as well as on the soil, and thus indirectly on the nutriment taken up by the roots, is, however, pretty well understood ; and as this is of a more stimulating character here than in the colder and moiler climate of Great Britaiu, these elfects are all the more de- serving of attention. Every one knows that leaves are the lungs of p...
