PERTH CITY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

PERTH CITY COUNCIL. Ws copy the foliowing from our contem- porary of Wednesday last : 'The half-yearly general meeting of the City Council took place at the Hall of the Mechanics' <InstttoferÍMt*Íf onday afternoon. There was a full number of the committee of each ward, and a tolerable attendance of rate-payers. The Chairman, in opening the meeting, briefly explained the general improvement made by the Council ia the City, the works which had been undertaken, and finished since thé last half-yearly balance, and those which were still in hand, but not completed. He hoped by the end of the year to be able to say tiie works already in progress, as well as much which waa contemplated, had been got through with ; and concluded by reporting that, on the whole, the affairs generally of the Council had progressed favorably ana to his satisfaction .ince the commencement of the present year. The balance-sheet was read, which showed the expenditure as also the receipts and amount rem...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (Front mir own Correspondent.) The only news to^ohronicle from this -place ia? of the most melancholy character. The 24th of May was anything but a day of rejoicing here, and had it not been for the Union Jack on the Government flagstaff, there would have been nothing to remind you tnat it was the 46th anniversary of the Queen's birthday. . * By the last mau you would hear of the death of one of Mr. Gale's children, from diptheria;' a few days after, Mr. Gale was attacked with the same disease, and after great suffering, 'ex- pired on the morning of the 24th, about 8 a.m., which sad event cast a gloom over the whole place. The funeral took place the following morning, and notwithstanding -the very short notice, the remains were followed by nearly. every one in the Bay, and several settlers out in the country who were anxious to show every » respect in their power. His death leaves a blank in our community which will not easily be filled up ; he was too well-known and a...

FREMANTLE. From our own Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

FREMANTLE. From our own Correspondent. Thursday, the 1st instant, was an unusually lively day in our town. At early morn the competitors for the prize-rifle arrived from Perth by .the steamer, and were received upon the jetty by the commanding officer of the Fre- mantle company ; they then marched up High street and halted opposite Marmion's Hotel, where they broke off and were allowed a short time to refresh the inner man, after doing which they again tell in and were joined by the chosen few of the Fremantle Corps, and at once pro- ceeded to the range. Li your last issue you gave the score, which I think showed very good average shooting, all ,the rifles used were submitted to the usual government test, and some were found to be considerably under the minimum pull 'of six pounds; in all, some 16 or 17 rifles were re-~ jected and fresh ones were procured from the Enrolled Force; this doubtless was the cause of some of the men not making their usual good scores. During the day all t...

THE LONDON FOG. (Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

THE LONDON FOG. (Mercury.) The reduction of the income-tax, Par- liamentary reform, the repeal of the malt tax, the purification of the Thames, the relief of destitution, are all measures more or less earnestly desire in diverse quarters. But if on Saturday evening any candidate had started for a metropolitan constitu tency with an effective Bill in his pocket for the abolition of the institution known as the London fog, he would have dis- tanced the most attractive political com- petitor for popular favor. Every one was grasping. Even those who have remained at home found a large clear fire but a poor mitigation of the unpleasant atmo- sphere that filled their comfortable rooms. In the theatres the audiences were pretty much in the position of the bewitched lovers in the Midsummer Night's Dream. Voices were heard well enough", but the capacity of vision was greatly limited. But it was in the matter of locomotion and out of doors that the full extent of social disorganization was ma...

Holloway'8 Ointment and Pills.-Ulcer- ous sores and scrofulous eruptions of the worst kind, for which all sorts of " estab- lished" remedies have been tried in vain, have been thoroughly cured, in an almost incredibly short time, by Holloway's Ointment. The common tropical appli- cations are mere palliatives ; but this un- rivalled Unguent penetrates the source of the evil, destroy the secret virus, and gets rid of the disease for ever. In or- dinary cases the Ointment should be briskly rubbed into the parts affected; but if they are too tender or irritable for this process, they should be gently smeared with it at least twice a day. The most inveterate external diseases will yield, sooner or later, to this Ointment. Important Announcement. EXTENSION OF BUSI- NESS PREMISES.

WESTERN INDIA. [From The Times' own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

WESTERN INDIA. [From The Times* own Correspondent.] I question if any city or community in the world has ever presented so extra- ordinary an aspect as Bombay during the commercial and social revolution through which it is now passing. The suddenly discovered gold did far less for Melbourne than thcct deluge of silver which' has for the past years flowed over Bombay with so mighty a current. The social anoma- lies and, I fear, also, the general demorali- zation were less marked in the English colony than in this Indian city, which a sudden, and probably temporary tide of prosperity has caused to aspire to be the Liverpool of the East. The rise of prices which during the past 15 years has taken place all over the world has been especially marked in India. No country with a* similar trade and revenue has so contracted a currency, but the effect on prices was not felt tül the influx of English soldiers and settlers which followed the mutiny. There was no corresponding increase in the n...

Hardey, one of the nominee members of the present Legisla- tive Council, from which we may fairly gather that, should the wished for altera- tion in the constitution of the Council take place, and the settlers have the privilege of electing Representatives, he, Mr. Hardey, does not anticipate being one of the members, affecting to believe that the new Council would not exist more than one Session-perhaps not ten days, as out of the contemplated l8 mem- bers 15 being non-official (Mr. Hardey not being there) will all feel themselves so lifted up that they will at once go in for Responsible Government-argu- ments antagonistic to which make up a great portion of his warning against any alteration at all being made.

THE UNITED STATES AND BRAZIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

THE UNITED STATES AND BEAZIL. The New York papers contain the following : - "It appears from official correspondence that on the 11th No- vember Secretary Seward wrote to Minis- ter Webb that this Government had not heard of the capture of the Flordia by the Wachusetts at Babia and of the con- sequent hostilities adopted by the Bazil ian forces in than port, and that in this stage of the matter the President thought it proper that Mr. Webb should inform the Minister of Foreign Affairs that we are not indisposed to examine the sub- ject upon its merits carefully, and to consider whatever questions may arise out of it in a friendly and becoming spirit, if that spirit be adopted by his Imperial Majesty's Government. On the 12th December M. Barbosa, Charge d' Affaires an interim, addressed Secretary Seward a letter in reference to the seizure of the Florida, calling it an an act of the most transcendent gravity, which involves a manifest violation of the territorial juris- diction of th...

TOBACCO SOILS. (From the Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 9 June 1865

TOBACCO SOILS. (From the Mercury.) It is pretty well-known that there are scarcely two plants of a separate class in creation that draw precisely the same kind of nourishment from the same soil ; hence the system, both in agriculture and horticulture, termed the rotation of crops. So well is this method employed that some crops will actually make prepara- tion for the next. Then again, some species of plants seem almost eccentric in their requirements-growing in barren places where other vegetation can scarcely exist. Others although they may main- tain a healthy foliage, refuse to flower or bear fruit. In grains, the wheat is a very conspicuous instance of this ; although requiring good land, it may easily be too rich, and what would produce a fine crop of oats would leave the wheat ear grain less-but we will leave this special crop for another paper. The facts alluded to make it very evi- dent that we cannot be too particular, in planting any new crop, first to enquire what kind o...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. HEAVY GALE AND DISASTROUS FLOOD AT THE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 June 1865

SOUTH ATJSTKALIA. HEAVY GALE AN© DISASTROUS FLOOD AT THE PORT. The gale on Thursday drove up a very high tide at the1 Port, and some little damage was done amongst the small craft, but nothing of a serious nature. The gale continued with unabated violence the whole of Friday, and during the afternoon there being appearance of a tremendous tide, fears were entertained for the bank along the south-west side of the town. The Mayor and some of the members of the Corporation paid a visit of inspection to the bank, and finding seyeral places very weak a number of hands were engaged to strengthen the embankment with sand bags. They worked hard for some time, but their efforts-were unavailing, and between 5 and 6 o'clock two or three breaches were made in the embankment, and the water poured itf upon the lower part of the Port with fearful rapidity, Many per- sons seeing the threatening danger stacked up their goods and chattels in order that some might be beyond the reach of the water, and...

TASMANIA. (Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 16 June 1865

TASMANIA. (Mercury.) With every disposition to take the most favorable view of the financial position of the colony, we are bound to say that we do not look upon it as encouraging. We shall probably be able to make both ends meet by the exercise of the most rigid economy, but we shall have nothing to justify us in any attempt to lighten the burdens of taxation when parliament meets, or to prompt us to a necessary ex- penditure on public works to which we might otherwise be led. This we infer from the quarterly revenue returns to the 31st of March. Neither on the territorial nor on the general revenue returns, have we anything to congratulate ourselves upon, especially on the former. That shows a decrease as compared with the corresponding quarter of the previous year of nearly ¿818,000, and although there was much that was exceptional in the larger amount of the corresponding quarter of the previous year,-payments to the extent of ¿612,000 on behalf of land taken up under the pre-em...
