DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

DESPERATE ENCOUNTER WITH PIRATES. H.M.S. Haughty, with a crew of forty men, has been employed chasing and capturing piratical junks on the coast of China. Towards the close of last year the Haughty captured eight or nine of these vessels, and having destroyed them, brought the crews into Amoy, where summary justice was done upon them. But the time was approaching when the Haughty was to " catch a Tartar." The Consul at Amoy had received intelligence that two large Canton lorthes had been seen some 60 miles up the coast, where they were employed stopping and plun- dering the junks coming down with the north-east }A monsoon. The Haughty started in pursuit and found them at anchor. One of them on sighting the gunboat, immediately slipped her cable and ran ashore. The other, being pressed, and finding escape impossible, faced about and ran aboard of the gunboat. After having five men severely wounded, and one man killed, the Haughty succeeded in sinking the junk and capturing some nine ...

LADIES' FASHIONS FOR MAY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

LADIES' FASHIONS FOR MAY. The thick-corded silks, taffetas, and, indeed, greater number of silks used for full dresses are made with a white ground and designs of wide, shaded stripes, or a very marked chine pattern of three shades mingled; others with bouquets of various colours, imitating embroidery. Silks for less dressy occasions are in checks or fancy stripes. In the first rank of elegant materials we would mention the chines taffetas Louis XV., with satin stripes; the violet poult de soi, crossed with white moires striped, others in shades of brown, green, French blue, and orange-glace ; and a material called junon is covered over with a pattern imitating pea- cock's feathers. Printed Pompadour, muslin mohair, with a white ground spotted over with field flowers; crystal leno, silk gauze, thick corded alpacas, and barege satin, are all in vogue. It is said that the basque-habit will be a make very much adopted both for dresses and mantles. One noted house makes them sepa- ratel...

Supreme Court. (Before His Honor Chief Justice Burt, and a Special Jury.) WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

Supreme Covert. (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 Eiver 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 ¿6200 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, an...

The English Mail [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

The English Mail ARRIVED at Perth yesterday afternoon, at 3.20. The principal news brought is that the Conference on the Danish question had terminated without any good result. The Germans would assent to no terms that could be proposed, and the war was about to recommence. It is not at all probable that England will be drawn into the war, but there is a great deal of excitement on the subject. The whole country would like to assist the Danes, but does not like the expense. The Americans continue fighting as hard as ever, with the same results ; both parties almost exhausted. The Northern army is recruited from Irish immigrants, and it is said that 40,000 Irish females, their relatives, were wandering about New Tork. Several deaths are reported of men of note. Among others, Mr. Smith O'Brien died of fiver complaint, at the Penrhyn Arms, Bangor; Colonel Torrens, Lord Adolphus Vane Tempest, Professor Fer- rier, Mr. Henry Ker Seymer, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Nassau W. Senior swell the ...

[ADVERTISEMENT.] EoUoway's Pills.-Hale Constitution.-When the human frame has become debilitated from the effects of exposure, excesses or neglect, the Pills will repair the mischief, if they be taken according to the lucid directions wrapped round each box. Holloway's Pius exert the most exemplary tonic qualities in all cases of nervous depresión, whereby the vital powers are weakened, and the circulation is rendered languid and unsteady. They improve the appetite, strengthen the digestion, regulate the liver, and act as gentle aperients. These Fills ore suited to all ages and all habits. A patient writes:-"Tour Pills, to be valued, require only to be known. During many years, I sought a remedy in vain, was daily becoming weaker, when your Pills soon restored me." HAS been running off and on with my herd, for nearly two years, one white heifer, about 3 years old, having a white spot on each year and on the tail.

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

VICTORIA. The transportation question has assumed a new phase. Tired of a struggle of twenty years' duration with the authorities of the Co- lonial Office on the subject, Mr. Edward Wilson has announced, in a letter addressed to The Argus, his determination to adopt a means of bringing the subject home to the people of Eng- land which they will not fail to understand. He has intimated his intention, single handed, or with the help of those who may choose to join him, to send home to England a few of the worst specimens of the expirée class who can be induced to return to the land which sent them forth. Mi. Wilson argues that a practical lesson of this kind would have , more effect on the mind of the people of England than any remonstrances that can now be ad- dressed to them; and would convince them, in the most irresistible manner, of the injustice they insist on inflicting on these colonies by the continuance of the system of transportation. This plain statement of the course he w...

He is seized with what they call the " prevailing mania," and is buying up scrip and shares in the wildest and most reckless manner. MR. MYTH-In the Wanerenooka, I suppose ? Never mind, my dear madam, it will all come right in the end. A little temporary depression exists, but mark my words: attention is attracted towards us in the more populous colonies ; speculators and capitalists will visit our mining districts, ere long, and all will come right at last.

Fremantle. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

Fremantle. A CORRESPONDENT writes: — On Thursday and Friday evenings last the Fremantle Har- monic Society gave their second Vocal and In- strumental Concerts (the previous ones having been held in the previous part of the month) at the Freemasons' Assembly Rooms, Fre- mantle, to a crowded audience, many having been compelled to return home for want of room. The pieces selected on this occasion were negro melodies, glees, and other songs, the whole of which were remarkably well sung, and gave much satisfaction. We should be glad to find in this, as in all other public enter- tainments, a spirit of advancement, and trust those who have on the present occasion come forward and acquitted themselves so creditably, will try what they can do towards attaining so desirable an object. The Fremantle Private Band attended, and assisted materially to the evening's entertainment. The want of some public building in Fre- mantle, like the Institute in Perth, is greatly felt, and we are glad to he...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST.[?] THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 11 August 1864

West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THUESDAY, AUGUST 11, 1864. THE first result of the explorations made upon the north-west coast has been a law-suit, the particulars of which are re- ported in this day's journal. Long after the return of the first expedition made to the Glenelg in 1863, the public remained in doubt as to the character of the Country visited, for the parties themselves preserved their secret so strictly that nothing worthy of much credibility was allowed to ooze out, until lately, when Du. MARTIN published his interesting journal. Soon afterwards the New Argo returned with MR. PANTER and his com- panions, and the glowing accounts of the scientific Naturalist were confirmed, and even enlarged upon. The defendants in the action referred to, who were in some degree sleeping part- ners in the first expedition, appear to have been unable to recognise the value of the land originally discovered. The practical plaintiffs, whilst painting the...

TASMANIAN SHEEP-WASHING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 18 August 1864

TASMANIAN SHEEP-WASHLNG MACHINE. This apparatus is the invention of our respected and intelligent colonist, Robert Crawford, Esq., the present manager of the Ellenthorpe Hall Estate. Its sim- plicity, non-liability to derangement, and labor-saving qualities are amongst the least of its recommendations, the chief being that the sheep do not require half the handling, and consequently are less distressed, less liable to injury, and double the number can be done more perfectly in the same time compared with the present system of " hot-water washing." It may be briefly described as a eis tern (supplied by a constant stream of water) standing on two upright, hollow, flat chambers, set 20 inches apart. Both these chambers are connected with and open to the cistern, and are provided on their inner sides with a number of ver- tical and horizontal very fine openings, through which the water (in consequence of the head-water in the cistern) flows in jets with great force. The sheep having bee...

EUROPEAN CIVILISATION FROM A JAPANESE POINT OF VIEW. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 18 August 1864

EUROPEAN CIVILISATION FROM A JAPANESE POINT OF VIEW. Everyone remembers the Japanese ambassa- dors who last year visited France and England. We (the Patrie) have not forgotten their in- quisitive curiosity. Truly these impassionato personages should not have forgotten a single incident of the entirely new spectacle which presented itself to their eyes. It was every- where remarked with what rapidity they listened to and took notes of the explanations of their interpreter. On their return homo they hastened to arrange these notes, wMch have just been printed at Jeddo. A French- man, who has lived there for soîne time, on seeing this book, immediately translated and sent us the introduction, which we give word for word, persuaded that it will bo interesting to our readers : "History of the Travels of the Japanese Commissioners in Europe.

Notwithstanding the advance in the Bank rate to 9 per cent, on the first day's sale, prices opened fully equal to the average rates of March, and on the reduction of the rate to 8 and 7 per cent, an improvement in our market became perceptible, and towards the close an advance of ¿d, to Id. was established. The attendance of buyers, both home and foreign, has been large throughout the whole of the series, and for export we estimate that 40,000 bales have been taken, nearly all for France.

ALTHOUGH no formal announcement had been made at the time of the departure of the English Mail as to the result of the Conference in London, it was well known that nothing had been accom- plished. The Austrian and Prussian confederates were determined to proceed with their nefarious undertaking, and the war against Denmark would be continued with all the unsparing cruelty and savage bitterness of spirit which marks the character of warfare among Christian and civilized nations no less than among the most degraded barbarians in all ages of the world. The crops, almost ready for the sickle, will be destroyed, all property worth removing will be carried away, villages and towns, having been first abandoned to pillage and sack, will be given to the flames. The inhabitants of Jutland were awaiting with terror the recommencement of hostilities after the 26th June, the last day of the armistice. The...

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 18 August 1864

THE NEW ZEALAND WAR. There is still no appearance of a speedy ter- mination to the New Zealand War. This month, (July) however, we have to record a success which goes far to compensate for the re- verse our arms sustained at the Gate Pa. After that engagement, the Maories were im- measurably elated. The leader of the East Coast tribes, Rawiri, sent a written challenge to the commander of the troops at Tauranga, a chivalrous production, of which the following is a literal translation :-"Now hear what wo have to say. We have been waiting for you to come and attack us for a whole month, but you have not come; and now we are coming to you. We give you warning, therefore, that you may expect to see mo within the month, and not to let any of your soldiers out, for our young men will certainly shoot them. We give you warning that you may not say it is murder, for it won't be murder." The Maories, so eager for the fray, did not have to wait long. On the 21st June, Colonel Greer, the officer...

British and Foreign Gleanings. THE CONFERENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 18 August 1864

British and Foreign G-leanings. THE CONFERENCE. Our readers may naturally desire to know what took place at the lost practical meeting of the Conference, when the arbitration pro- posal was rejected. But we have no authentic means of gratifying so justifiable a curiosity. In both Houses of Parliament Ministers have alluded to the subject, and promised to lay all the papers on the table to-night, June 27, when full information will be given. In the interval we leam from the * Star ' some particulars of what took place on the 22nd, which it alleges to bo correct, but which must be accepted for whatever the authority of the paper may be considered worth. According to this statement, the Austrian plenipotentiary opened by uncon- ditionally rejecting arbitration; and was fol- lowed by the Prussian plenipotentiary, who was willing to refer to arbitration, reserving, however, the full right to reject the decision of the arbitrator. The Banish plenipotentiary peremptorily declined the propo...
