West Australian Times. DISCUTE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863
West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1863. IT is a great misfortune to be a Penal Settlement, but the necessities of the colony (arrived at starvation-point) com- pelled us, in our destitution, to humble ourselves and eat dirt. There is about as much sense and decency in those Sister-colonies that have fallen but risen again affecting to point at us the finger of scorn, as there would be in denouncing the man of education and birth who is reduced by his misfortunes to perform menial offices. When we consented to enter the service of the Home Govern- ment, and accept our portion of Prisoners and Pay, it was not until after a good deal of boggling and hesitation. Before fettering our limbs with the livery of servitude, we stipulated that we were not to be subjected to the lowest and meanest duties, nor to be expected to hob-and- nob at the same board with the most degraded of the human species. The convicts despatched to these shores...
THE TALE OF THE FORTY THIEVES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 October 1863
THE TALE OF THE FORTY THIEVES. THE Eastern Story-tellers have been most agreeably entertaining their circle of eager listeners at home, as well as the , English public, by their new version of this well-known tale. According to them, ALI BABA and his thirty-nine com- rades embarked in a piratical vessel from some port in Western Australia, and after a prosperous voyage, effected a descent upon the unprotected shores of New South Wales, in the neighbourhood of Sydney. This appears to have been the sole result of the desperate exploit, as nothing more has been said or sung of the deeds of this hardy band, with the exception of an incident recorded of an individual arrested in the streets of Sydney with a crow-bar in his pocket. This event is probably by no means,;, of rare occurrence, if any credit is to be given to the criminal statistics of Sydney, as quoted by the Hon. ME. COWPER, the Colonial Secretary, and referred to in our last issue, but the Eastern fabulists have thought prop...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER, 29, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1863. To live in a Colony which has so long been unprogressive and torpid, which has hitherto offered so little hope of increase to Capital, and of good fortune to Enter- prise, has long seemed to most of its inhabitants a lamentable destiny. There are few philosophers in any part of the world, and perhaps it is well for what is called the progress of Civilization that it should be so. It is natural to Man to be discontented unless his property accu- mulates, and the Future promises a better state of things than the Past. And yet our Colony, though slowly progressive, has not been all evil. We remember the times, before the discovery of gold in other Australian Colonies, when the circumstances of Victoria were far worse, and apparently more hopeless, than ours have ever been; when land and house-property in Melbourne were utterly unsaleable, when cattle and horses were burthensome to their owner...
Beverley. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
Beverley. On Sunday, the 18th instant, the Clergyman of the district, a zealous servant of Christianity, who allows nothing to step between him and his duty, rode fifteen miles, through wind and rain that might have made a bronze statue wish itself indoors, in order that his parishioners might not suffer disappointment. With an excellent sermon in his pocket, and I'm afraid an awful cold in his head, he entered the building. But alas, nothing met his gaze but empty pews. His flock would seem to be but fine-weather Christians, and only four persons assembled together, and one of them a stranger. I felt truly grieved, and had to wipe something out of the corner of my eye to hide my feelings.-[From a correspondent-probably the Clerk.']

THERESE. (By the late JAMES SHERIDAN KNOWLES.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
THERESE. (By the late JAMES SHERIDAN KNOWLES.) THERESE, if not as noble as her mistress the Lady Julie, was a thousand times more reserved: she was a thousand times more interesting too. Her forehead was beautiful ; Lavater would have etched it for the outline express of dignity, intel- lectuality, and delicacy. Her graceful and stately figure corresponded with her exquisitely feminine countenance. Sit- ting, standing, or walking, one would never have inferred her occupation ; and every one, especially Count Theodore, wondered how she became the maid of the Lady Julie. The first time the count saw Thérèse, she was assisting the Lady Julie to adjust some ornaments for a head-dress, and he took her for some noble friend of her ladyship's, a mistake which Lady Julie took care to correct. The count was in future a constant attendant at the toilet of her ladyship, who soon remarked that he had conceived an attachment for Thérèse ; and as he had formerly been her ladyship's admirer, and w...

The Chimney Book Tales for Country Readers. PRINCE GEORGE AND THE WATCHMAN. (From the German of Heinrich Zschoklce.) [Concluded.] CHAPTER XIII. "LAY hold on him! That's the man!" cried many voices, and Philip, Rose, and George saw themselves surrounded by six lusty servants of the police. Rose screamed, Philip took her hand, and told her not to be alarmed. The prince clapped his hand on Philip's shoulder, " 'Tis a stupid business," he said, " and you should have escaped when I told you. But don't be frightened, there shall no harm befall you." " That's to be seen," said one of the captors. In the meantime he must come along with us." " Where to ?" inquired Philip ; " I am doing my duty. I am watchman of this beat." " That is the reason we take you. Come." The prince stepped forward. "Let the man go, good people," he said, and searched in all his pockets for his purse. As he could find it nowhere, he was going to whisper to Philip to give it him, but the police tore them apart, and o...
The Tariff of Kisses. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
The Tariff of Kisses. A FRENCH journal gives the report before a Justice de Paix of a claim made on an actor of one of the small theatres of the suburbs of Paris, for a certain amount of tender squeezing on the stage. We got to know exactly, by this amusing incident of real life, the cost of a theatrical kiss, according to the dramatic laws of the French stage. One M. Narcisse appears before a justice of the peace, and, addressing &nbsp; the Judge, says - " Monsieur le Juge, I'm a dramatic actor. I play the parts of lover, in a theatre of the Bani- leue. My parts oblige me to be extravagantly passionate, excited, and enthusiastic. I'm obliged occasionally to love women of all ages, of all conditions of life, actively and persever- ingly, often for a couple of hours together. Love-making may become laborious, Monsieur le Juge, and even repulsive and annoying, if one is obliged to make love. Well, sir, and will you believe it, all my fire, devotion, my artistic amorous skill, ...
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-Allow me to express, through your valuable journal, my regret at ob- serving the small attendance of Volun- teers at our usual Monday evening parade. When we were first formed, we mus- tered on the evening named, about 30 rank and file, and although we were not then a very formidable band, yet we were not by any means contemptible ; but what will you think, Sir, of the M. -R. V. when you learn that only 12 men turned out on Monday evening last, and were paraded with the usual military pomp ! Individually, I can only say that I paid the Amateur Dramatic Corps willingly to see Bombastes' Army as it is, or as it was, but I must candidly say that I have a decided objection to being one among those who form an army which, after all, is only second to that renowned General's in strength and effectiveness ! Let the Volunteer Corps be disbanded ere it becomes the butt of every sane man. Your obedient servant, MARS. THE GOOD BISHOP.-Two intimate friends...
A PLEASANT STATE OF THINGS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
A PLEASANT STATE OF THINGS. To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-If our agricultural produce be unremunerative ; pastoral land of easy access difficult to obtain; cattle and stock unsaleable ; labour in excess of de- mand ; the timber and wine-trades slug- gish; imports in excess of exports; mining property neither marketable nor dividend- paying; house-property yearly deterior- ating in value ; money in circulation in- sufficient for commercial, mining, and agricultural enterprizes; the truck and cook-debt system spreading throughout the Colony ; Bank accommodation pru- dently limited ; loans by way of mortgage difficult to negotiate ; with the hazard of failure of crops; disease among sheep; a bad lambing and wool season ; a money crisis ; and the ultimate scarcity of fire- wood, by reason of grubbing being per- mitted near towns; without naval or military protection ; - there is enough to alarm a bold financier and Chancellor of the Exchequer, who will do good service by some r...
York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
York. Whilst we are at press, the York Agricul- tural Society are engaged at their Annual Dinner, when, no doubt, matters of much in- terest to the colony will be discussed. The inhabitants of that loyal district would have been heartily glad to have welcomed Her Ma- jesty's Representative among them this year, but they did not think it likely that His Ex- cellency could find time to visit the neighbour- hood after his recent journey to the Sound, and with another in prospect to Bunbury and the Vasse. It is well known that the Governor means to be present at the dinner of the "Vic- &nbsp; toria Plains and Toodyay Agricultural Society," inasmuch as he was prevented by illness from attending it last year. Mr. J. Cowan has returned from a trip over Mr. H. M. Lefroy's recent track, to the extent of 60 miles east of Mr. C. Smith's out-station; and brings good news of grass in abundance and plenty of water. This is most satisfactory, as tending to confirm Mr. Lefroy's prognos- tic...
Our Back [?]arlour. No. V. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
Our Back Parlour No. V. [PRESENT-Our Deputy-Sub-Editor, Mr. WOBBLES, and The Poet SPROUTS.] SPROUTS-There is nothing so interest- ing as travel in an unknown country. It is like reading a new book full of exciting incidents. The gay variety of flowers; the plumage of sun-born birds ; the solemn stillness of the vast, illimitable forest ; the hope, the doubt, the danger that waits on every step we take-how many charms for the high-toned poetic spirit ! MR. WOBBLES-Poetic fiddlestick ! Do you think we want poets on expeditions ? No, Sir ; we want men in strong high- lows, who can do a good day's march with eyes in their heads, and pluck in their hearts, who will not return without discovering all that is to be found, and can form a correct estimate of all they dis- cover. Them's the chaps for my money. MR. DEPUTY (with his pipe between his teeth)-You want your scientific man, more than all, to have everything brought to light according to legitimate princi- ples. Your poet may discove...
Champion Bay. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
Champion Bay. (From a Correspondent.) A PUBLIC MEETING was held at the Court-house, Geraldton, on the 15th October, convened by the Resident, at the request of some of the influential settlers. The Resident Magistrate being: requested to take the chair, the following resolutions were passed : Proposed by Mr. L. C. Burges, seconded by Mr. W. M. Parker, and carried unani- mously : That the regulations of 1860 require more enlarged alterations and amendments than have been recommended by the Committee: As to classification.-The regulations of 1860, vide Chapter II., Clause 2, place nearly all the grazing land at present known in the Colony in Class A. This will be a death-blow to the breeders of stock, and in no way advance the interest of the agriculturists. This classification was not considered so detrimental to the interest of the settlers hitherto, as it was supposed that more good land would somewhere be found within reach, to meet their wants. But, owing to the unsatisfactory re...
AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 29 October 1863
AMERICA. RESOLUTION OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO " WHIP " GREAT BRITAIN.-The New York Herald semi-officially announces from Washing- ton that the 300,000 fresh troops called for under the present draught are not designed for service in the South, but are to be drilled and held in reserve against the contingency of a war with Great Britain. It asserts that the re- lations of the two countries have recently become threatening, and that the tone of the Parliamentary speeches and the press, as well as the verdict in the case of the Alexandra, is such as to endanger the continuance of peace. It concludes by stating that the Government at Washington has come to the resolution to suffer no longer the fitting out of armed cruisers for the use of the Confederates in the ports of Great Britain, and that the confirmation of the de- cision in the case of the Alexandra by the higher court in England, which is confidently expected, will be considered as a declaration of war on the part of Great B...
