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, OCTOBER 28, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

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, OCTOBER 28, 1864.   WE this week have the satisfaction of giving our readers what we believe will prove a somewhat unexpected pleasure — good sound proof of a state of Colonial progress, for which we believe few have been inclined to give the Colony credit. The Returns annually furnished by the Customs' Department for Almanac pur- poses, of the Imports and Exports for the year ending September 30, when com- pared with those of the three previous years, are probably the most satisfactory in every respect, which have ever fallen to our lot to make public, and exhibit a rate of increase of production which will soon create a marked difference in our community, and a buoyancy and hopeful feeling for the future very different to what has prevailed for the past two or three years. To no community would an increase of export...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. THE Cricketing Elevens of Perth and Fre- mantle met on the ground of the latter on Thursday, the 20th, when the Perth Eleven were victorious with 10 wickets to spare. The weather was lovely, and the turf in good order. Fremantle having won the toss, went to the wickets at about half-past 10, but were disposed of for the small score of 22 runs. Perth then took the batting, and defended their wickets for a long time, the score rising to 108 before they retired. A short interval for luncheon having been agreeably occupied, the Fremantle Eleven went in again, and obtained 88, five of them getting double figures as will be seen below. Perth having three runs to get, won the game without losing a wicket. Next year we hope to be able to play on the long talked of Recreation Ground in Perth, which is about to be put in order by the Government. An- nexed is the score : FREMANTLE. 1ST INNINGS. 2ND INNINGS. W. Marmion, b King...2 E. Ashton, run out.0 Scott, c Burt b Knigh...

JAPAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

JAPAN. Japan has been the subject of some anxiety during the last fortnight, and there are not wanting prospects of speedy hostilities in the Straits of Shimonosaki, which forms the Gibralta of the Inland Sea. Matters may thus briefly be stated. On or about the 25th of July last, two Japanese "Ambassadors" reached Yoko-   hama by the Mail Steamer. Both were dressed as Europeans, and had been for three months in England, whither they had been sent, they affirmed, by their master, the Prince of Nagato. Shortly after their arrival two of H. M's vessels of war (the Barossa and the Comorant) got, up steam , and proceeded to the Shimonosaki with the two men on board. There were also on board an Engineer officer and some French and Dutch officers. This was the first visit paid to these. Straits by any foreign vessel for about a year, and there was some reason to suspect that Nagato had, in the inter- val, strengthened his fortifications. There is every reason to suppose that t...

WILLIAM THOMPSON THE MAORI KING-MAKER. From "The Mercury." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

WILLIAM THOMPSON THE MAORI KING-MAKER. From "The Mercury.' In the course of the last twelve months the name of the Maori king-maker has been in almost every mouth ; but except by repute he is less generally known to the settlers than any chief of note in New Zealand. Although he is hardly yet be- yond the prime of life, he has for many years been the principal chief of one of the most intelligent native tribes: and among the men of his own generation he may be ranked as "primus inter pares." By his knowledge of Maori lore, and by his skill in making use of ancient songs and proverbs, to hint his meaning and to move his hearers, he has become an effective orator, and being the son of a celebrated warrior, and believed to inherit his father's courage and ability, he is ge- nerally regarded by the Maories as one of their foremost men. Like others of his countrymen, he has been desirous of making himself a name ; but his ambition has never been directed to ignoble objects. To improve th...

Correspondence. THE PENSIONER FORCE AND THE INQUIRER. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 October 1864

CORRESPONDENCE THE PENSIONER FORCE AND THE INQUIRER. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR,- I am truly surprised to find that even your semi-official contemporary, the Inquirer and Commercial News, could be induced to make, such a specious statement as it did in the issue of the 23rd ultimo, with reference to the present condition and prospects of the En- rolled Pensioners in Western Australia. There can be no doubt that the Inguirer has only done its wonted duty in becoming the "spe- cial pleader" of the "powers that be," yet it is apparent that it must have really stultified itself to become,- in this instance, the medium of circulating the oficial trash it did on the date which I have named. The Inquirer says " that out of 17 Pensioners who have quitted our shores 14 gave up the: Force, although they had a prospect of 7 years     constant employment" Now, Sir, this is simply nothing hut silly twaddle, or anything else you please,...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 November 1864

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. His Excellency the Governor returned to Perth from York on Friday last. He was somewhat indisposed after his journey, but is now reported to be nearly well again. -? A CORRESPONDENT at Champion Bay informs us that the "Zephyr" was expected at that Fort from Port Gregory about the middle of last week. We are further informed that the "Merchantman" was shipping her horses at Geraldton, and expected to get away before the end of last month. The horses sent by this opportunity are not considered as good tw those shipped on a previous occasion by the Messrs. Brown. -» ON Monday last, the first-class riflemen of the Metropolitan Volunteers went down to Fre- mantle, accompanied by the Adjutant of the Company, for the purpose of firing at the long distance ranges of the Fremantle Corps. The day, however, proved unfavorable, and nothing could be done at the butts, and the Metropoli- tans had to return without distinguishing them- selves. Some few of the Fremantle Volunt...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 November 1864

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) In writing out my last week's report I was compelled in order to be in time for your Southern issue, to omit any notice of an inter- esting ceremony that took place in our town on Wednesday evening, the 26th ult :-viz. The re-opening of the Wesleyan Chapel, which has for the last few years been an eyesore to Fre- mantle, and was fast going to decay and ruin. For some time past men have been employed clearing the sand hill away and restoring the edifice, the result is that it now wears a smiling and pleasant appearance ; from a ruin almost buried beneath sand hills, it has sud- denly become a neat chapel partly enclosed by a stone wall, and is now an ornament and, let us hope, a blessing to the town. The Rev. Mr. Bond officiated, and delivered an eloquent sermon appropriate to the occasion, to a nu- merous and attentive congregation, a great number of whom were friends from the City, who returned by the steamer which waited for them until near...

CoiTOjjoiiucnrc. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette ¿f W. A. Times, SIR,-In your recent leader upon the exodus now going on from Western Aus- tralia to the other Colonies, you remark.. " It is to be hoped that those who are leaving this colony may not do worse ;" now, sir, let me ask you, what has the result of their movements, whether for better, or worse, to do with the present, or future, state of Western Australia. Their ill success will not prevent othci* leaving Western Australia, nor, so far a» I can see, will their well doing be of any service to those who may remain, or who are unable to leave ! ! ! Their success, or the contrary, will affect in no way what- ever the intention of those who mean to follow them, go the people will, and it is but natural that those, who cannot find employment, or land to cultivate here^ will seek it elsewhere. Now we must first look to the cause, and then (if not too late) find and point out a remedy. At the time when, under the influence of l...
