AN IMPROMPTU, ON A CONTEMPLATED PIECE OF UNSCRUPULOUS IMPROMPTU LEGISLATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

AN IMPEOMPTU, On a contemplated piece of unscrupulous - impromptu legislation. What a pleasant, wondrous little Nation Is this downy land of Swan ! Sure such glorious feats of Legislation Were ne'er before performed by man I We pass our laws to suit our maws ; That is, to suit a lot of fellows; And when our Statesmen find They're not precisely to their mind, They're made to shut up, like umbrellas. Says Councillor Pat, " By this and by that, When we passed a law that was intended To flourish for aye, like the Gem of the Saye, We never thought it would need tobe mended. D'ye think as a Christian I would e'er put a stopper On the 'taties and bread of a blood relation ? No, Sir ! who dares to say that tells a whopper, And no Act that works thus can be good for the nation. I say therefore 'tis bad, and my friends, Sir, Tn the Council agree in this feeling. Och sure, by the Powers ! they will grant me amends, Sir, By doing what England would not, Sir repealing." Ye Barons so bold who ass...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. Sib,-I trust you will again favor me with a ¿mall space in your valuable paper. The other day I happened to have án opportunity, which rarely occurs here, of taking a peep into a copy of the Inquirer newspaper of the 7th Inst., intend following him through the whole of his preamble, but will only remark that the first part of it is a mere part, and the latter an un- necessary scandal upon our small community. I believe I am justified in saying that Northam has been the quietest little place in the colony for many years past ; in fact ever since the first settler pitched his tent there, it has been a st* s>i of uninterrupted harmony and goodwill amongst all hands. Now I think that argues pretty well for those settlers-'-some of ten, some twenty, and some of thirty years standing, and I believe it would nave remained so for the next generation, had not "Northam Corres- pondent" and some others like himself crept in ; but I can as t...

VICTORIA PLAINS. From our own Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. From our own Correspondent. A rather singular case came off at our Police Court on the 17th ult. ; a woman and man (I place the woman first as she seemed to rule the roost) were charged with hawking goods for sale. The singularity of the case con- sisted in its being quite a feminine affair, as the principal defendant (and in fact the male defendant according to all accounts was not much better than an old woman) and sum- moned witnesses were females. Of course the hawkeress, I suppose this is the feminine gender of hawker, was victorious, as what man hardly out of the honeymoon, e'en though he be a J.P., could withstand the eloquence of an elderly female's tongue. One of the witnesses in this case, after having gone to the trouble and expense of travelling over 30 miles, because that her husband re- quested to have her expenses paid previous to giving in her statement, was informed that her evidence could be dispensed with, and con- sequently that she would receive...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W.Â. Times. Sie,-I observe in your issue of 16th insfc., the copy of a letter dated Camden Harbor, - March 16th, signed by one William Wilson ; a in which he states that Captain Brown, of the ; wrecked ship Calliance, ran his vessel on the '. rocks in the place that he described as the sand. - shore. This charge (from personal observation of the wreck) cannot be otherwise than utterly false. The Calliance was driven on shore from off a mod flat, with her anchors on the ground, stern first on the point of rocks. No maní under the circumstances (as detailed, and ~ vouched for in the Official Log Book of that ship) could have prevented the accident. The old boat which went safely to Timor, and was got afloat at sea (Mr. Wilson's ver- . sion) after the schooner capsized, was on the last voyage of the Calliance, a new 24 feet cutter, fitted with Clifford's Patent lowering apparatus. From my own knowledge I can vouch that the Calliance was in every res...

PRESERVED MEAT. (From the Morning Post.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

PEESEEVED MEAT. (From the Morning Post.) If the axiom be just, thet he who causes two blades of grass to grow where but one had hitherto been produced, is a bene- factor to the human race, the thought and energy that bring into practical use sources of ailment available, but as yet overlooked or undiscovered, are equally entitled to the appellation. That force of intellect which meets the exigencies of an ever-increasing population by multi- plying the supply of food on the spot can hardly be regarded in a more meritorious light than the practical sagacity which rescues it from a locality where it lies ut tërly. useless, and places it at the disposal of man for the better preservation of his health- and vigor. But when sufficient skill and commercial prudence have united in not only thus adding to the stock of human nutriment, but also in purveying it in so economical a form that it is placed within the resources of an industrious class^hithertp restricted to a diet of less sustaini...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. The opening of the Legislative Council took place at the usual hour, in the Chamber used for the same purpose last year, in the old Government House, Perth. There was nothing to mark the event beyond the absence of Mr. S. P. Phillips, the return of the Honorable The Colonial Treasurer, in full Executive Uniform, a Pensioner Guard of Honor under command of Major Crampton, and a wet day. The following was the Speech delivered by His Excellency The Governor on the occasion : Honorable Gentlemen of the Legislative Council The Draft Bills which will be laid on the table to-day embrace the whole of the measures I have to submit for your consideration during this Session. 2. As the proposed Legislation, in general, merely provides for slight alterations of exist- ing Ordinances, the only remarks I have to make thereon at present will be confined to the two Money Bills. 3. It appears from the Bill to confirm the Expenditure for the year 1864 beyond the grant for tha...

Holloway's Oîniment and Puls, a certain remedy for diseases of the skin-Ring- worm, scurvy, scrofula, or king's evil, sore heads, and the most inveterate slrin diseases to which the human race is subject, cannot be treated with a more safe and speedy remedy than Holloway's Ointment and Pills, which act so peculiarly on the constitution, and so purify the blood that those diseases are eradicated from the system, and a lasting cure is obtained. They are equally efficacious in the cure of tumours, burns, scalds, glandular swell- ings, ulcerous wounds, rheumatism, con- tracted and stiff joints. These medi- cines operate mildly and surely. The cure effected by them is not temporary or apparent, only, but complete and per- manent. THE LIVERPOOL AND LONDON, AND GLOBE INSURANCE COMPANY. Subscribed Capital, «£1,887,020.

FEÍ5AxT:UÍE^23ri865l Summary for the Mail "Stobt, God bless you, Sir, there is none to tell," is a fair summary of what has occurred during the month. After the unwonted excitement of the previous two or three months, owing to the varied news from the north, since the departure of the last mail we have had nothing to occupy general attention, but the state of the weather, and the prospect it gave of future food for man and beast; and happily over the greater portion of the colony the season has been all that could be wished for. ' The dry weather of May, which had caused some apprehen- sion, having been followed by fine rains during the present month, falling gently and sinking into the soil. North ana South seem to have been equally favored, but in the eastern districts while York has had plenty, Toodyay ond Northam have not fared so we...

DEATH OF RICHARD COBDEN. (Adelaide Observer.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 23 June 1865

DEATH OF EICHAED COBDEN. (Adelaide Observer.) About six weeks ago England sustained a loss which has not been equalled since that memorable occurrence fourteen years ago, when she lost her Iron Duke. The one was her chosen leader in war, the other was her leader in peace. Both found her overwhelmed by dangers and difficulties ; both delivered her when she had well nigh given up all hope of deli- verance ; both lived to see their victories, like fruitful seed, give rise to a new era of national prosperity. In the present century, the first great climax of civiliza- tion was in 1815, on the field of Water- loo ; the second was in 1864, in the Eng- lish House of Commons. When the first happened, Eichard Cobden was a youth of fifeteen, serving his apprentice- ship in a London warehouse, where it is recorded of him that " by steadiness and industry he rose through successive grades till he had gained a thorough knowledge of the business, and stood high in the esteem of his employers."

To the Editr of the Perth Gazette & WA Times. Sir,-In your publication of the 16th inst, you insert in a short paragraph, that at the Magisterial Sessions of this district, a wheel- wright named Johnson was committed for the manslaughter of William Grout, a fellow work- man. It is true that such is the case, but as the terms, in which it is noticed would lead those not present at the examination to a very un- favorable conclusion against me, I pray you to insert a statement of what really occurred. William Grout was employed by me, and hav- ing a contract for building work at Mr. John Fleay's, we proceeded together with a two-horse dray loaded with timber. At the time the sad accident occurred we were both sitting on the dray, passing by Mr. Hicks' blacksmith's shop. The horses were about going into his yard when I whipped the shafter and they trotted on for about thirty yards; further on was a little hill, distant about three or four hun- dred yards, on arriving at the top ...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 June 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our oivn Correspondent} ,. On Friday morning we were surprised to find the Tartar entering our anchorage, a£ she was not expected so early ; she came to an anchor at '9 o'clock a.m., and is in a very leaky state; during the voyage out she experienced some very heavy weather, and to save the ship Captain Melvin was compelled to throw over- board about 130 tons of cargo. The remainder of the cargo is now being landed and stored in the large bonded warehouse adjoining the"Com mi&sariat Stores. At times the vessel had aa much as seven or eight feet water in her hold, and it was expected all the cargo would be more or less damaged, but lam glad to see that many of the packages already landed have not suffered any damage. On Saturday our northern coasters made a second, and this time successful attempt to sail for Champion Bay, and this also was made the wonderful discovery that the Convict An- drews, who you will remember I stated in my last to have escaped from ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette # W. A. Titties.. Sir,-A grievance is an Englishman's privi- lege, and one with which the Government supply us very liberally in this Colony, both real and imaginary. I have a real one "to bringe before the public in the capacity*in which I,'*T-1,K sign myself. It is» that in this metropolis* there is no public ground fit for cricket. The Eecreation Ground which is extensive, and fitted for the purpose, has long been in too bad a condition for cricket, and its approaches ren- der the walk to it very unpleasant. To remedy this the Cricket Club applied -to Government" for aid in August 1862 andr March, 1863, but were unable to obtain it. Again in October 1864 a similar application was made, and tfye Government piomised, if the money "for fencing material were raised, to erect the fence, to level, clear and grass the ground, and to make a foot- path to it. The money (£27) was collected, the members of the Cricket Club contributing .. -...

Latest Intelligence. HOME NEWS OFFICE, WEDNESDAY, April 26th 1865. The emperor's journey to Algeria being now a settled thing, the Paris journals are speculating on its object and^ dura- tion. ' ' ' ' A report just published of the physician in-chief to the French army shows that of 300,000 men (using round numbers) sent out by Prance to the Crimea during the war 10,000 were killed in action, and 80,000 died of disease and other casual- ties. Yesterday a stranger presented him- self at the Russian embassy in Paris, de- manded to speak with the Secretary of Legation. Immediately after his entr- ance a noise was heard, and the secre was found covered with blood, having re- ceived five stabs with a dagger.

ARRIVAL OF THE OVERLAND MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 June 1865

ARRIVAL OF 'l'H \t) OYERLAND MAIL. The European and Indian Mails arrived in Perth on Saturday afternoon shortly after one o'clock. ï'he delay was occa-4 sioned by the non-arrival of the Bombay at Point de Galle from King George's Sound up to 2nd June, when the Salsette was sent off with the mails. Of shipping intelligence, we have the sailing of the Palestine with cargo, on the 16th April, and the Beatrice with coals for the P. & O. Co. ; the destination of the latter is given as King George's Sound, but it is reported that her cargo is in- tended for the new depot at Fremantle.

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 30 June 1865

MISCELLANEOUS. A letter from Vienna says that, accord- ing to communications from M. de Less- ees, the canal that is to unite the Red Sea and the Mediterranean will be finished toward the end of June, 1868. The con- tractors, who have undertaken the works for 100 millions, are bound to pay 500, 000 francs for every months delay. On the other hand, they are to receive a like sum for every month that the canal shall be finished before the time stipulated. Earl Russel^on the 'part of Great Britain, has acceeded to the convention proposed at Geneva, to " mitigate the evils inseparable from war, to suppress useless severities, and to ameliorate the condition of soldiers wounded on the field of battle."
