West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

lest %uBtxzüm ®iuus. DISCITE JTJSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. T THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 1864. -\ WE have been told that great excitement prevails among certain classes of the community, who apprehend that, from the exultant tone of the press in the other Colonies, consequent upon the perusal of the recent Memorial, there is a probability of transportation to this Colony being speedily done away with. The garbled statements of the Colonial press will not alter the fact that our Me- morial does not ask for an immediate cessation of the system, but asks for something in aid, whilst it signifies that we would gladly dispense with a system which must end in the direst evils to the Colony, provided we could get any more desirable substitute. We doubt whether the friends to transportation are wise in bringing the question to the immediate decision of the Colony at large. The result may shew a considerable and increasing difference of opinion among the settlers. We all wish to retain a larg...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

York. According to the report in the Independent Journal, a meeting was last week held at York by a great number of anonymous people. The chair was taken by Mr. Blank, who in a very able manner explained the objeot of the meeting, and detailed his own mercantile views, which appeared to be based upon original trading principles. A series of resolutions, proposed and seconded anonymously, were adopted by Mr. Blank, and another meeting was appointed to be held on the blank day of blank, for the purpose of completing the business so aus- piciously commenced. Many other matters of importance would probably have been discussed, had not, according to the report of our Contem- porary, a letter been incautiously " handed to the Chairman during the proceedings," which letter "denounced in the strongest lan- guage the York settlers" engaged in this movement, and caused as much conster- nation and dismay as if a bomb-shell had burst in the room. A conspiracy against the life of the Governor co...

L ^ JPersian Insect-destroying Powderiff» which a Priée Medal was awarded to the producer at the International Exhibition, 1862. Mr. Keating's attention has been drawn to a spurious imitation of the above article, sold in Australia, made up in the exact form of the original, both in regard to wrapper and printing. The imitation article is a worthless ingredient, of not tiie slightest value for the required pur- pose.

The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

The English Mau ABEIVED at Perth on the 10th instant, about 9 a.m.-keeping its time to the day and hour. A wonderful thing this, con- sidering the vast space of sea and land that has to be traversed before ourletteis can reach their destination. The chief events of the month comprise the successes of the Austrian and Prussian armies over the unfortunate Danes, whose principal fortress in Schles- wig, Düppel, was taken by storm on the 18th April, after a terrible bombardment which had reduced the works to ruins. The remains of the Danish army managed to escape into the island of Alsen. Throughout England the greatest ex- citement, indeed the wildest enthusiasm, has been created by the arrival of Gari- baldi, who landed at Southampton on 3rd April, and soon afterwards visited the Isle of Wight, where he was warmly welcomed by (among many others) the Poet Laureate Tennyson. All the states- men and nobility of England thronged around him in London. The Prince of Wales visited him in pri...

Greenough Flats. (From our own Correspondent.) June 1, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

Greenough Flats. (From our own, Correspondent.) June 1,1864. During last month I believe we were without a single shower. Early planted potatoes stood the intense heat and nip-   ping frosts of the month, but the young cereals suffered much, and garden plants raised by early sowing nearly all perished. To-day it rains in torrents. The extreme dry hot weather was favourable to cotton growers, enabling them to pick and sweat their cotton, and house it un- damaged or discoloured by moisture. Yesterday a Public Meeting of the Victoria Agricultural Society was held at   the Mechanics' Institute, Geraldton. Its chief object was to endeavour to revive its languishing or nearly defunct energies by increasing its members with additions from the Flats farmers. Mr. Gray inti- mated that if the present members wished to make their Society popular, so as to induce the Flats farmers to become mem- bers, it was necessary that the policy of the Society should be to conduct...

REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. ¡ WE have not had an opportunity of read- ing the " Act for the better Government of Her Majesty's Australian Colonies," and therefore are content to accept the information afforded us by our cotem porary. Although we do not believe in the benefits which he imagines would ac- crue from our gaining a partially-consti- tuted Representative Council, we are quite ready to accept of such an institu- tion, provided it is made clear that the Colony will not lose a substantial good for what may prove a mere shadow &n return. We believe that the Colony, until it is in a position to receive a /Re- presentative Government on the footing of the other Colonies, would gain little by having a more noisy Council than at present; but it might lose much. We are to be charged thereafter with all such portions of the cost of Government as have heretofore been paid by Parliamen- tary Grant. That is to say, all our bur- thens will have to be borne by ourselves, without ...

Our Chimney Hook. Tales for Country Readers. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. AUTHOR OF "NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND." (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

UM töpmtWJi ftoflfe. Tales for Country Baaders. CLOUDS AND SUNSHINE. BY CHARLES READE, A0THOB OF " NEVEB TOO IiATB TO MEND." (Concluded.) IT was about twelve o'clock the next day, that Mrs. Mayfield observed Robert return from the field, and linger longer than usual in the neighbourhood of tile house. She invited Rachael to come and look at her pet calf, and walked her most treacherously right up to Robert. ' Oh!' cried she, 'you must excuse me, here is Robert, he will do as well. Ro- bert, you take and show her my calf, the red and white one, that's a good soul, they want me in-doors. And in a mo- ment she was gone, and left Robert and Rachael looking alternately at each other and the ground. When Rose left these two together, she thought, innocently enough, that the business was half done, as far as they were concerned. She had not calculated the characters of the parties, and their pride. They were little nearer each other now than at twenty miles distant. ' Well, Rachael,' said ...

THE NEW LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

THE NEW LEGISLATION. IJ OF the Bills about to be presented to the Legislative Assembly, few are of sufficient importance to require serious comment. They are principally designed to amend the errors of previous legislation, audonre trust the result will be an improvement upon the original effort. The most im- portant blunder appears to have been made in estimating the Expenditure for the year 1863, the sum actually expended in excess of the amount applied for being no less than ¿67,325 12s. We have only very meagre information afforded as" to how this excessive expenditure has been incurred. We know that during this period the utmost economy was practised in cutting down salaries on new appoint- ments, three hundred a year having been saved over and over again. A large item of this excessive expenditure is put down to the account of the Colonial Secretary's Office-¿8640 14s. lOd. ; but to what it has been appropriated does not appear. The Judicial Establishment is charged with «£313...

The War in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 16 June 1864

The War in New ¡Zealand. The following interesting particulars of the repulse received by our troops in New Zealand in their attempt to storm the "Gate Fa" is extracted from the letter of the special corres- pondent of the Southern Cross: TUE "rOBLOBN HOPE." It was long apparent that a breach had been made in the enemy's works, the fire having been mainly directed to its north-eastern angle. But the serviceable extent of the breach, and whether it unlocked the intricate galleries of the pa, could not be known. The evening waa wearing on. A soaking rain had fallen almost incessantly from the early morning; and, aa the firing did not seem to produce much effect, it was at length resolved upon to storm the pa. About noon Colonel Gamble, deputy quarter- master-general, returned, having managed to cross the linea of the enemy and join the 68th. He had been able to get a good view of the enemy's position in reverse, and was thus able to supply much valuable information. When it was determ...

THE POLISH INSURRECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 23 June 1864

THE POLISH INSURRECTION. All Cracow haB been thrown into ex- citement by the arrest of two ladies, whose salons were among the most ele- gant and frequented of that city. One of them, the Countess Ostrowska, was a lady who had taken temporary refuge in Cracow from the excesses of the Russian soldiery, and the other, a Countess Wod zicka. The house of the Countess Ostrowska was entered at 6 a.m. by the police, and minutely searched from garret to cellar. At the expiration of 8 hours a paper was found, from which it appeared that the Countess Ostrowska belonged to a society formed among the ladies of Cracow for nursing the sick and wounded, &c. From this paper it also appeared that the Countess Wodzicka was president of the same society. Both ladies were arrested on the spot and carried off, at 10 p.m., to the lock-up in the Castle.

THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. HONORABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL— [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 23 June 1864

THE GOVERNOR'S SPEECH. HONORABLE GENTLEMEN OF THE LEOISLATIVE COUNCIL I have much pleasure, on again meeting you, to be able to state that the public affairs of the Colony are in a satisfactory con- dition-especially with reference to Revenue and the opening up of new country in the remote districts. 2. The generally unimportant business for our consideration during the present session is comprised in the fifteen draft Bills lately placed in youi* hands. 3. With the exception of the Bill to confirm the expenditure for the services of the year 1863 beyond the grant for that year, and the Appropriation Bill for the year 1865, the Bills are of little public interest, being mostly mere technical amendments of existing Ordi- nances. Four of them have been prepared in accordance with instructions contained in Des- patches from the Secretary of State, which will be laid on the table. 4. It appears from the Schedule attached to the first-named Bill that the total of the over- drafts not pro...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 23 June 1864

York. The parties connected with the proposed Export Company contemplate meeting at an early date to organize their plans and set the measure regularly afloat. If well regulated and conducted, the project may prove a successful one ; at any rate it is one of which the parties need not feel ashamed, and therefore we hope they will send below no more reports of Meetings at which the parties present think it well to suppress their names. This is by no means a manly course, and invests with ridicule a matter which is otherwise en- titled to respectful consideration.

OPENING OF THE Legislative Council. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 23 June 1864

OPENING OF THE Legislative Council. THE Legislative Council assembled yes- terday at 1 p.m., in the Chamber now appropriated to its meetings, being the dining and drawing-rooms of Old Go- vernment House thrown into one. The Governor was received at the entrance by a guard of honour of the Pensioner Force, commanded by MAJOR CRAMPTON. The Venerable ARCHDEACON BROWN, Senior Colonial Chaplain, having read prayers, MR. WILLIAM KNIGHT, Acting Colonial Treasurer, was sworn in a Member of the Legislative Council; after which His EXCELLENCY proceeded to read his Speech on the opening of the Assembly. To this document we are enabled, by the courtesy of the PRIVATE SECRETARY in promptly furnishing us with a copy, to refer our readers. The speech seemed to give general satisfaction. The account of public works done and to be done by the convicts reads well, but the works themselves, when seen by the naked eye, are apt to shrink in their di- mensions from the pre-conceived estimate.
