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

York. The Committee of the exploring expedition to the eastward are liable to pay upwards of ¿filOO for the equipment of the party, besides having provided horses, flour, and other neces- saries. Expeditions of this kind are of such vital importance to the Colony, that the greater part of the cost would fall very properly upon the Government-that is, upon the Colonists generally, and not upon a few patriotic indi- viduals. The Government boast of their liberality in having furnished the pack-saddles, as if they were of for more value than the horses which are risked by the settlers. The discovery of good land to the eastward is of far more im- portance to this colony than any quantity of grazing ground in the tropics, therefore wo should like to see some portion of the Govern- ment fund intended for Exploration purposes laid out in furthering the York expedition. There may be more of charm and romance about the N. W. territory, but its value to the inhabitants of this part of the co...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] Holloway's Ointment and Pills.-Gratifying results.-The merest blotch npon the skin, and the deepest ulcération of the flesh yield to the detergent and healing properties of this cele- brated Ointment. Bad legs, burns, eruptions of the skin, and scrofulous sores, can be cured with facility by the proper use of this Ointment, aided by Holloways purifying Pius. Under this treatment the foulest ulcers become clean, and in a few days florid granulations appear, which gradually grow and fill up the cavity with firm and healthy flesh. No relapse need be feared since the sore is not lightly skinned over, but built up from its bottom with the best materials producible from pure blood, steady circulation, and invigorated vessels.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. Sro,-"L" has spoken the truth ; and with your permission I will further comment upon the doings of the Fremantle Rifle Volunteers, in the earnest hope that, in the coming " cam- paign" (fine weather), these statements may not be lost upon those whom it more imme- diately concerns. I have been a member of the Corps from its commencement, and throughout, myself and other members who joined at the time were led to suppose that a certain amount of drill was necessary to qualify as aspirants to military knowledge, more especially in the matter of firing. Now, instances frequently occur of newly made members falling in with the old hands, without having had an hour's squad drill; and of others becoming members one day, and going out to the range and firing ball cartridge the day following. Pleasant, a rear rank man (or boy) thus, to his comrade in front-pleasant, too, to the efficient member-to have to his right, left, or rear, a raw recruit, kicking and ...

Supreme Court. (Before His Honor Chief Justice Burt, and a Special Jury.) WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

Supreme Court. (Before His Honor Chief Justice Burt, and a Special Jury.) WEDNESDAY. AUGUST 3. 1864 THE only case of public interest was that of Brown v. Burges, in which Messrs. Kenneth Brown and others sued Messrs. Lockier Clare Burges and others for the sum of ¿£200, alleged to be due to the plaintiffs for information supplied, and work and labour done in and about an expedition, made by them, to the Glenelg Biver last year. The plaintiffs contended that they had done for the defendants all that was ne- cessary to entitle them to the money, whilst the latter maintained that the .£200 were only to be paid in case the plaintiffs should succeed in selecting for the defendant 600,000 acres of good pas- toral land, which they were to do after securing 700,000 acres for themselves; that the plaintiffs did not explore or select for the defendants any land at all, and that they suddenly terminated the search, after a fortnight's attempt, without finding land suitable for themselves, and ...

[ADVEETISEÎIENT.] Holloway's Pills - Indigestion - How much thought has been bestowed, and what ponderous volumes written upon this plague of every household, which is certainly and safely dispersed by a course of this purifying, soothing, and tonic me- dicine, without fear of relapse ! It acts directly on the stomach, liver, and bowels -more indirectly, though not less effect- ively, on the brain, nerves, vessels and glands, and so commands order through- out the entire system, that harmony dwells between each organ and its func- tions. Dyspepsia can now no longer be the bugbear of the public, since Hollo way's excellent Pills are fully competent to subdue the most chronic and distressing cases of impaired digestion, and to res- tore the miserable sufferer to health, strength, and cheerfulness.

The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

%\t ê#eiï Cûlitwit, To THE EDITOB OP THE W. A. TIMES. Sir,-The ratepayers won't vote any more money while the present City Council holds office. That's flat ; what's to be done? Will the Council resign? I doubt it. I know the stubbornness of the John Bull character, and that he will fight to the last. Allowing that the portion of St. George's Terrace now under repair is, and has been for a considerable time, in a most disgraceful state, I do not see why some of the central streets of THE METEOPOLIS should be neglected because an influential member of the City Council did not happen to live near either of them. Take Murray (I think it is called) Street, running parallel to St. George's Terrace (grandiloquent !) and Hay Street (commercial!), for example, and what has been laid out upon that? A part of it was passable a few months ago, but, thanks to the aid of certain city " im- provements," neither the Home, Hospital, or other buildings in that neighbourhood are approachable except b...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

tötest ütfstntliiw ©imís. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. o Hear and be JUST. k ,f THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1864. THEEE is little doubt that, within a short period, enterprising settlers from some of the other Colonies, as [well as from our own, will proceed to take up land at various points of our north-west coast. These parties will naturally seek for stock where it may most readily be found, and therefore there is reason to hope that our cattle-owners will, at no distant period, find a market for their herds. It is in this way that the newly-visited districts are most likely to benefit our own Colo- nists. We offer the nearest market to settlers in those districts, and if, on further examination, the Country prove to be as well adapted for immediate occupation, as it is represented to be, there will be every encouragement to our farmers to increase the numbers of their stock of all kinds. In the other Colonies good land is as much in demand as in this, and there are men of capital, as well...

LETTERS OF THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OF THE "MELBOURNE ARGUS" UPON WESTERN AUSTRALIA, PUBLISHED IN THE "ARGUS" IN JUNE LAST. [Concluded.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

LETTERS OF THE SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT OP THE " MELBOURNE ARGUS " UPON WESTERN AUSTRALIA, PUBLISHED IN THE "ARGUS" IN JUNE LAST. [Concluded."] It is not unlikely that, owing to the difference in the interests of the hour be- tween the traders and the settlers, the transportation question will become one of town versus Country. In the towns the merchants and the Government store- keepers have a great and direct influence in checking the expression, if not the growth, of any feelings opposed to their views. In the country there is more scope for individualism. Indeed, the matter seems to have fairly entered on this phase. People in Perth and Fremantle refrained from signing the sanitarium petition, in the country districts it was received with unanimous favour. Whatever division of opinion exists, it is important to observe that it is with re- gard to the past and present importation of between 500 and 600 criminals per annum. The extension proposed by the Royal Commission is unequivoca...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

NEW ZEALAND. The following is an extract from a private letter, dated 5th May, received from a gentleman at Wanganui, addressed to a friend in Auckland. The writer has every chance of knowing the truth of what he writes about, and his intelligence may be implicitly relied on. He says : " The Maories in this district, or near Patea, have had, as they say, a special favour-a Divine revelation-since the death of poor Captain Lloyd. First they killed him and drank his blood, then cut off his head as a trophy, and buried it that it might be preserved. A few days afterwards, as they tell the story, the angel Gabriel appeared unto those who had partaken of the blood, and through the medium of Captain Lloyd's spirit, informed them that Jehovah had deigned to confer on them the favour and duty of teaching the world the new and only way of holding true communion with Him; that the head of Captain Lloyd must be disinterred, and it would im- mediately make known to them the proper mode of worsh...

An addition of a four-year-old useful mare should have been made, which mare was so tractable and up to her work, that for four weeks she was hacked about from one end of the district to the other, and afterwards returned on my hands dead lame. These facts will bear investiga- tion. The wild ones should have been made to do this hack-work, not the docile ones. So much for lending aid to explo- ration parties-great encouragement ! ! !

PERTH CITY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 4 August 1864

PERTH CITY COUNCIL. MEETING OP RATEPAYERS.—The   meeting of Ratepayers convened by the Chairman of the City Council for the purpose of voting an additional rate of 2½ per cent, took place at the Mechanics' Institute on Monday last, at 3 p.m. The ratepayers attended in considerable num- bers. Everybody's pocket was likely to be affected, and everybody came deter- mined to defend his pocket with vigour. The convening of the meeting was alto- gether irregular, as the Ordinance gives the City Council power only to levy such a sum during the year as has been agreed upon at the General Annual Meeting held in December. A large portion of the sum voted last December for the ge- neral improvements in the City had been applied to the improvement of Hay- street only, and the Council now desired to levy an additional rate for the pur- poses originally contemplated. It was admitted at the meeting that the pro- posed rate was irregular, but Mr. George Shenton suggested a mode of obvi...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 1864. LETTEBS Ol' THE SPECIAL COBEESPONDENT OF THE " MELBOURNE ARGUS " UPON WESTEBN AUSTRALIA, PUBLISHED IN THE "ABGUS" IN JUNE LAST. PREFACE. Western Australia is to the Colonists of the east well nigh a terra incógnita. 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, Btands afar off, unvisited by the agents of commerce, and neglected by book writing tourists. Isolated, poor, and unattrac- tive, many eyes would not have seen it nor many ears have 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 tho transportation ...
