MURDEROUS OUTRAGES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 18 August 1864

MURDEROUS OUTRAGES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. Our last month's summary contained some account of a series of atrocities per- petrated in the adjoining colony of New South Wales by bands of desperadoes, known by the comparatively mild term of "bushrangers." An outrage of a most diabolical character had just been com- mitted at the Round-hill Station, in the Goulburn district, by a ruffian named Morgan. It will be remembered that, armed with a couple of revolvers, Morgan mustered together all the men on the station-eleven-and, after compelling them to drink four bottles of spirits, which he had previously made the over- seer of the station produce, he fired shots among the party, and then rode off on horseback into the bush. One of the men received a severe wound, which broke one of his legs, and the overseer was slightly wounded. Shortly after- wards Morgan deliberately shot a man named M'Lean, who had followed him simply-incredible as it may appear-to ask permission to go for a doctor for ...

THE CULTURE OF FLAX. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 August 1864

THE CULTURE OF FLAX. Flax was one of the plants set down by Mr. Duffy as coming within the intention of the 47th clause of the Land Act, 1862, and no doubt rightly so, seeing that in Victoria flax has, until lately, never made its appearance anywhere out of a flower garden, and people seem so wedded to wheat and corn that they scarcely know that flax is a highly profitable crop, or, in fact, are acquainted with its uses. One of the firstfruits of the 47th clause in this neighbourhood is the fact that Mr. G. S. Kemp, of Coghill's Creek, has now a splendid crop of flax on his lease- hold land, and we trust his example will be extensively followed, whether under the "industrial" clause,' or under the leasing clauses, of Mr. Heales' measure, should that pass into law. Little as has been done here in flax cultivation, it has been proved that the climate is well adapted for the purpose, and that any fair soil on which wheat can be sown will produce good crops of flax ; the best crops bein...

FEOM time to time in the life of every Nation there arrives an epoch which afterwards seems to have been the turning-point of its Destiny. There are times when the eyes of all men incline to look in one direction, when there is a vague belief stirring in all hearts that united action in one great aim is all important, and that such a step is the only course left open for security and success. There are instincts in men and in nations that press upon our notice with a gentle pressure, whose hints we long afterwards acknowledge, and regret that they are given in vain. It may be that we are now arrived at some such turning-point in our colonial career. There is a general consciousness which cannot be stifled that one phase of the Colony's existence is coming to a close ; not because some of more or less foresight than others think that a termination is immediately desirable, but ...

VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 August 1864

-- i VANCOUVER'S ISLAND. ( -« WE compile the following brief account of this island, of which our late Governor, Captain A. E. Kennedy, is now the Go- vernor, from the Edinburgh Review. Vancouver's Island lies on the west coast of British Columbia, off the mouth of the Fraser River, on which is built New Westminster, the Capital' of Co- lumbia, the centre of gold-digging opera- tions. It is called the " England of the Pacific," and its climate much resembles that of Devonshire. Its first appearance from the sea is gloomy and forbidding. Dark and lofty rocks rise perpendicularly out of the water, and behind this natural sea-wall rise immediately a succession of round-topped hills, retiring inland, and clothed with the dark-green foliage of the monotonous fir-tree. The soil of these hills is very poor and scanty. Behind the hills a range of bare rocky mountains runs, like a back-bone, through the entire centre of the island. The island has, however, its portions of more level, well cl...

OUR MUTUAL FRIEND.—No. 2. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 August 1864

OUR MUTUAL FRIEND.-No. 2. BT CHARLES DICKENS. The peculiar humour of the author is fairly distributed over the first chapter of this number of his new tale. A street corner man with a wooden leg, one Silas Wegg, a sharp-witted fellow, vendor of dry nuts and damp gingerbread, quick also at catching hold of any other mode of earning a shilling, and not greatly trou- bled by conscience without respect, makes an amusing bargain with a man who has fallen into a fortune, but cannot read, to initiate him into the delights of literature of an evening, at half-a-crown a week. The man of fortune, Boffin by name, by way of beginning, has purchased a work at a book sale, and thus describes his bargain. " Bought him at a sale," said Mr. Boflin. " Eight wollumes. Red and gold. Purple ribbon in every wollume, to keep the place where you leave off. Do you know him?"-"The book's name, sir ?" inquired Silas.-" I thought you might have know'd him without it," said Mr. Boifin, slightly disappointed. "H...

Though they may not impair the general health at first, ultimately, such must be their effect, if per- mitted to continuo unrelieved. It should be generally known that, after fomentation with warm salt and water, Holloway's Ointment, well rubbed upon the affected part twice a-day, gives infinite ease, and secures ultimate re- covery. Holloway's Pills should also be taken, to assist in the cure-they prevent all weak and numb feelings, so apt to prevail after neu- ralgic and rheumatic attacks.

MARRIAGE OF THE COUNT DE PARIS AND THE PRINCESS ISABELLA D'ORLEANS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 25 August 1864

MARRIAGE OF THE COUNT DE PARIS AND THE PRINCESS ISABELLA D'ORLEANS. -The marriage of Louis Philippe Albert d'Orléans, Count de Paris, with his youthful cousin Princess Isabella, daughter of the Duke de Montpensier, and the Queen of Spain's sister, took place on Monday. Such a gathering, indeed, of princes and princesses, of ambassadors, of the English and French nobility, was never before seen at Clarement. In such high esteem are the illustrious occupants of Claremont held by the inhabitants of Esher, Kingston, &c, that a meeting was held, early after the marriage was an- nounced to take place, and it was deter- mined that two triumphal arches should be erected, one in front of Portsmouth road, the other at the entrance to Clare- mont-lane, decorated with the monograms of the royal bride and bridegroom, &c. The royal family of France have expressed repeatedly, in the warmest terms, their sense of the kind feeling shown to them. The Duke de Montpensier gave £40, and ...

tätest australis» ©im**. Discite Justitiam, Moniti. Hear and be just. . THÜESDAT, SEPTËMBEB 1, 1864. We can scarcely be wrong in assuming that the main and constant object of every good Government is to pi'omote by all laudable means the prosperity of the governed. It is a well-known phrenological fact that no head is so given over to a chronic state of acting as that which wears a crown. The next pate in degree, and of course the next to» be pitied, is that of the Prime Minister. What days of care! what nights of sleepless watching over the interests of others ! " O polished perturbation ! golden Care That keep'st the ports of slumber open wide To many a watchful night" In a minor degree, but still with no little amount of painful pressure, the Councillors of State, the thought-laden members of the Executive, are con- tinually on the rack, devising measures for the advancement of those whose weal or woe in some degree depends upon their decisions. Beyond all doubt, the present is a...

HARD THINGS AGAINST ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864

HARD THINGS AGAINST ENGLAND. The irritation against England con- tinues to'increase in Germany. At Ber- lin the exasperation is such that the Nord-Deutsche Zeitimg, a ministerial organ, does not hesitate to use the fol- lowing language :-" The cannon of Missunde has been the signal of combat against the system of perfidy by which England has maintained her domination ; it is toot for the duchies only, but to deliver Europe from that intolerable yoke, that the German battalions have fought." The Abobigines of Australia. - At a meeting of the London Ethnological Society, a paper "On the Ethnology of Australia" was read by Mr. A. Oldfield. The author con- sidered the New Hollanders to be mainly of Malay descent, whioh people he supposed colo- nized the northern ahorca of Australia, and thence their descendants have spread eastward over the continent, following to a great extent the lines marking the distribution of edible plants. The familiar customs of the various tribes evince a comm...

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) Our quiet town was again disturbed, on Monday afternoon, by the unruly, chain-gang employed at the Fremantle Bridge. These outbreaks are now of such frequent occurrence, that they fail to attract any great attention in our town; but on Monday last, when a report spread through the streets that the whole of the chain-gang had rebelled and attacked the sentries placed over them, the place was all excitement-faces were peering out at every window, and groups standing at every door, all anxious to know the truth. The pensioner guard was seen doubling to- wards the scene of action, accompanied by their gallant commander on horseback, the rear being brought up by two mounted constables. This sight was enough to set the expectations of all beholders on tip-toe. Then there was hurrying to and fro. Every- body seemed anxious to know the truth : some, more knowing than the rest, " were certain the guard had not fired, or the report would have been hear...

THE ART OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864

THE ART OF MILKING. In Jennings' late work on cattle, the following remarks are given on the sub- ject of milking : Milking is performed in two ways, stripping and handling. Stripping con- sists in seizing the teat firmly near the root between the face of the thumb and the side of the fore-finger, the length of the teat passing through the other fingers, and in milking the hand passes down the entire length of the teat, causing the milk to flow out of its point in a forcible stream. The action is re- newed by again quickly elevating the hand to the root of the teat. Both hands are employed at the operation, each having hold of a different teat, and being moved alternately. The two nearest teats are commonly first milked, and then the two farthest. Handling is done by grasping the teat at the root with the fore-finger like a hoop, assisted by the thumb, which lies horizontally over the fore-finger, the rest being also seized by the other fingers. Milk is drawn by pressing on the enti...

NOTICES OF NEW BOOKS. Heroines of the Household. With Illustrations. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864

NOTICES OP NEW BOOKS. Seroines of tJie Household. With Illus- trations. The characteristics of good women are always pleasant things to contemplate, and the author of this volume supplies many such pleasant things for the en- tertainment of his readers. Among them is a biographical notice of au ex- emplary daughter, which we shall quote, because it is as romantic as any page of a Bensational novel, and has all the charm of truth to recommend it to attention. THE GOOD DAUGHTER. " Sir Patrick Hume, of Polwarth, had good cause to be alarmed when, in October, 1783, his friend Robert Baillie of Jerviswoode was apprehended in London, and sent to Edinburgh a pri- soner, on the charge of being connected with the Rye-House Plot. It was not, however, tül about a year after that active measures were taken against him. A party of soldiers sent to apprehend him, having stayed on the way at a gentleman's house, betrayed then" pur- pose by some questions they asked. The lady of the house wrapped a...

The pith of it seems to be, that those who have no natural talents for music ought not to waste theil- time in studying that " noble art."
