The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 July 1864

The English Mail REACHED Perth at daybreak on Tuesday morning, the 12th instant. The matters of chief interest at home were the Derby Eace on May 24-which was won by Mr. W. F Anson's Blair Athol, out of Blink Bonny ; the Queen's early departure for Balmoral, apparently has- tened by the difference of opinion entertained by Her Majesty on the Danish question from the Prince of Wales; and the probable retire- ment of Lord Palmerston from the Premier- ship, and who shall succeed him. The follow- ing are the principal events which have hap- pened in Europe during the last month or six weeks : THE DERBY.-The following is an account of this very interesting race:-The 30 runners were weighed out, and their numbers hoisted upon the telegraph boord at exactly half-past 2 o'clock-half an hour before the.appointed time for starting-but owing to the long delay in cleoriug the course, it was not until a quarter past three o'clock that the horses neared the post. Then another tedious delay ensued...

Eastern Colonies. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 14 July 1864

Eastern Colonies. SOUTH ATJSRTALIA. Mr. Hargreaves, the discoverer of gold in New South Wales, has completed his explora- tory search for gold in South Australia. He has discovered no gold worth mentioning ; but has found abundance of copper in the North. In consequence of renewed denial of the validity of the laws by the Supreme Court, Committees of both Houses of Parliament have been appointed to draw up addresses to the Queen on the subject. Wheat 10s. 9d. to 103. lOd. at the Port; 10s. 6d. to 10s. 8d. in town. Flour, £25 to ,£27. Mr. Dutton has brought in a Bill, which has been read a second time, for increasing the stringency of the law against the inroad of Western Australian refugees and ticket-of-leave men into this colony. There is one highly " sensational" clause in it, according to which escaped convicts are to receive a hundred lashes before being sent back to Western Aus- tralia. The necessity for increased stringency in the matter of anti-convict legislation appears to...

WESTERN AUSTRALIAN BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

WESTEEN AUSTEALIAN BANK. The Half-Yearly General Meeting of the proprietors of this Establishment was held in Perth, on the 13th inst. Mr. George Shenton, being called to the chair, opened the business of the meeting, and read the following Eeport : The Directors have the pleasure of submit- ting to the proprietors the ordinary report on the business of the Bank for the Half-Tear ending 30th June last, and are happy to be able to repeat their assurance of the well-being of the Establishment. Throughout the entire period now under review the progress of the bank has been satis- factory. The payments and receipts have been more numerous than at any former period, and notwithstanding the partial depression arising, it is believed, from temporary causes to which the commercial and agricultural in- terests have been subjected, the demand for legitimate accommodation has been fully main- tained, while the profits of the Half Tear con- trast very advantageously with former periods.

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

The Open Column To THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TIMES. Sir-Perhaps you will allow me the privilege, as I do not often trespass on your valuable space, to make a few remarks respecting a paragraph that appeared in the Inquirer and Commercial News on June 22. The writer represents himself, as if he had inquired into the wishes and desires of all the inhabitants of Northam; or else he must con- sider himself the only I AM that has anything to do with the question he so anxiously inquires into. First, he wants to know, why the few convicts allowed us by the Government are cutting a road through the townsite. If his eyes and recollection do not fail him, I think the answer is very plain. The track that we have been obliged to use is, in the winter, altogether impassable, the river often rising until the water covers the track from six to ten feet. Likewise, when grants of land are purchased in the townsite, the fence often runs acress the track, and leaves us without a road at all. Also, I ha...

British and Foreign Gleanings. THE CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

British, and Foreign G-leanings. THE CONFEEENCE. The members of the Conference upon the affairs of Denmark assembled at the official residence of the First Lord of the Treasury on May 4th, but very little progress "was made towards the solution of the questions upon which they had met to deliberate. Not even the pre- liminary difficulty of an armistice was adjusted. The representatives . of the belligerent Powers accepted the pro- posals of the neutral Powers only that they might be transmitted to their respective governments, and the Confe- rence was then adjourned until May 9. The Conference reassembled at 1 o'clock on May 9. ^"AU the plenipotentiaries were present. The first business brought for- ward was the communication to be made by the representatives of Denmark, con- veying the reply from their government to the despatches of May 4, on the sub- ject of the armistice. The discussion lasted more than three hours. Ulti- mately it was resolved that hostilities should be suspend...

York. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

York. THE exploring party lately organized by the York Agricultural Society started from York on Saturday, the 9th instant. The party con- sisted of six persons :-Mr. Hunt, leader; Mr. J, Seabrook, Mr. J. Cowan, Police Constable Edwards, one other, and native Cowitch,.with 23 horses, and provisions for five months. The object of this expedition is to prosecute still further the routes of Mr. Lefroy last year, and Messrs. Hardey, Hunt, and Robinson this year, with the view of hitting upon some large water course trending E. and W., where it is hoped that a good country may be discovered. The party wUl therefore make for the most easterly point gained in the former excursions, and after succeeding in getting round the chain of salt lakes, will endeavour to moke a course from one to two points north of east; failing to make any useful discoveries in this direction, the party will endeavour to push northward as iiir as timo and circumstances will permit. Subjoined is a list of the subsc...

[ADVEBTISEMENT.] Holloway's Pills.-Momentous Inquiry.-Sur- rounded as we are by exciting causes of disease, it becomes our duty to seek some means of expelling impurities from the body, or rendering them harmless. Professor Holloway has dis- covered a medicine capable of effecting this all important point, and has generously placed it within the reach of the poorest. His Pills guard the constituents of the blood, which, when contaminated or destroyed, permit fevers, inflammations, and other maladies to run riot through and undermine the system, or consign their victims to untimely tombs. In malarious districts and unhealthy towns, theße Pills, after silently proving themselves the best pro- tectors against fevers, &c., have, within the last few years, been adopted by the profession and public.

LETTERS OF THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OF THE "MELBOURNE ARGUS" UPON WESTERN AUSTRALIA, PUBLISHED IN THE "ARGUS" IN JUNE LAST. PREFACE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

LETTERS OF THE SPECIAL CORRESFONDENT OF THE " MELBOURNE ARGUS " UPON WESTERN AUSTRALIA, PUBLISHED IN THE "ARGUS" IN JUNE LAST. PREFACE. Western Australia is to the Colonists of the east well nigh a terra incognita. In all other instances the settlers of the one colony have an intimate acquaintance with the circumstances of the others. Western Australia, an exception to this rule, stands afar off, unvisited by the agents of commerce, and neglected by book writing' tourists. Isolated, poor, and unat- tractive, many eyes would not have seen it nor many ears heard of it, but for the dubious position it has lately acquired-that of the solitary British convict colony. Its bad eminence now forces it directly upon the notice of its prosperous relatives ; its' neighbours, for the first time, begin to take an interest in its affairs. This position and this want of infor- mation, especially the lack of intelligence re- garding public feeling on the transportation question, led to my being depu...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JULY 21, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 21 July 1864

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JULY 21, 1864. A SERIES of letters has lately appeared in the Melbourne Argus upon the condition and prospects of this Colony, chiefly with reference to the convict question, that cannot but attract considerable attention in both hemispheres. The writer, who paid us an exceedingly brief and hurried visit, has yet managed to acquire a very great amount of accurate information. Although many will no doubt be disposed to differ from his conclusions, they have nevertheless been arrived at after a fair and dispassionate survey of the whole field of argument before him; and the   result of all is, that he considers the prospects of the Colony by no means im- proved by the continued influx of convicts. It will of course be asserted, and with much truth, that the writer was in some degree biassed by preconceived notions acquired in a Colony extremely hostile to us; but in a candid and honourable mind ...

Uü %mtxüim ©itiws. DlSCITE JUBTITIAir, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1864. ALTHOUGH the British Government has refused to subsidise the India-Singapore line of telegraph, or to contribute anything towards the Singapore-Australian line, these proposed works are again brought forward, and will some day be in full operation. According to a blue book which has lately appeared, the starting point of the Anglo-Australian and China Telegraph will be Bangoon, whence the cable is to be laid to Singapore, from which place one branch will be carried to Hong Kong, and another to Batavia. There is already a telegraph throughout Java, which will be connected with the Australian line. From the east end of Java it is to be laid down to Timor, thence to Port Essington, and so on to the Gulph of Carpentaria. The whole distance comprised in the intended route is 7,000 statute miles, and the cost is computed at ¿2,250,000. Owing to the moderate depth of the seas, it is calcu- lated that ...

Beverley. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 28 July 1864

Beverley. The inhabitants of this district having great reason to complain of the state of their only road, which is in some places impassable at this time of year, held a meeting on the 16th instant, to consider the course to be adopted, and also to protest against the removal of the only police-constable in the district. The meeting took place in the school-room, when James W. Broun, Esq., was called to the chair, and after an animated discussion, the following resolutions were proposed and earned : 1.-Proposed by Mr. John Fleay, and se- conded by Mr. Joseph Hicks : " That the con- templated removal of the party from the Beverley Road is at present inexpedient, the road being still in an unfinished state, and in many parts quite impassable after rain." 2.-Proposed by Mr. Bartram, and seconded by Mr. White : " That the inspection of roads be left to the Resident Magistrate, who may be supposed to know their requirements better than an occasional inspector, or who can and does only ...
