CAMDEN HARBOR. The following despatches have been received from Mr. Sholl:— Government Resident's Office, Port Camden, 20th May, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 July 1865

CAMDEN HABBOB. "". The following despatches have been re- ceived from Mr. Sholl : Government Resident's Office, ' v Port Camden, " ' 20th May, 1865. , SIR,-I have the honor to inform you that the Jeanie Oswald, of Melbourne, arrived at this port on the 10th instant, with 5 cabin -passen- gers, 40 horses, 60 sheep, 2 cows, some dogs, goats, and poultry. Of the passengers, three proceed to Sourabaya with the vessel, and all the stock, except one mare. The vessel will sail, I am informed, to-mor- row morning, and by her I shall forward a small mail. His Excellency the Governor will be glad to hear that since the departure t>f the Tien Tsin on the 20th March, the general health of the Camp has been good ; I, however, regret to re- port one death, the native constable Jimba hav- ing died from disease of the lungs on the 17th instant. He was buried at Sheep Island on the following day. He had been ailing for some time, and his death was long expected. It appears that he was thrown from...

Extraordinary Boat Voyage. NEWS FROM ADAM BAY AND CAMDEN HARBOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 28 July 1865

Extraordinary Boat Voyage. NEWS FROM ADAM BAY AND CAMDEN HAKBOR. ON Friday morning last Perth was some what astonished with the intelligence that seven persons had arrived at Champion Bay in a small boat from the South Aus- tralian settlement at Adam Bay having called at Camden Harbor. The follow- ing is our Correspondent's letter, dated the 14th instant : On Saturday, the 8th instant, Geraldton was thrown into a state of wonder by the appearance in the bay of a small open boat with seven men, and a natural conclusion was at once jumped at, that they formed a portion of the crew of some vessel which had been wrecked on the coast. On the tiny craft however coming to the jetty, it proved to hail from the South Australian settlement at Adam Bay, on the north coast of this continent Island, manned by Mr. Jefferson Stow, J.P., Messrs, Hamilton and Macminn, Surveyors, and four men, who had in this small boat called the Forlorn Hope, of 24 feet long and measuring only 1½ tons, performed on...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The present month has set in with great éclat for our quiet community. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the 1st and 2nd inst., the Har- monic Society gave their promised entertain- ments, and were both nights rewarded with a full House. On Tuesday His Excellency the Governor, and Mrs. Hampton paid us a flying visit, to be present at the Congregational Bazaar, held upon thp/ day, in aid of the build- ing fund for the minister's residence, &c. I am not yet aware what amount was taken du- ring the day, but I hope the rev. gentleman's utmost expectations were realized. There is quite a dearth of news. In shipping it has been unusually quiet, only two arrivals coastways. The Harriet Hope from the Vasse, with timber for Adelaide, and the Favorite from Port Gregory and Champion Bay ; at the former port Messrs. Batemau's whaling party have been very successful, having captured four fish, and been fast to several others. Fifteen tuns of oil has arriv...

THE ADAM BAY SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

THE ADAM BAT SETTLEMENT. From Adelaide we learn that the pre- sent position of the Adam Bay settlement had formed the subject of a question in the House of Assembly on the 31st ult., which is thus reported in the Begister : "Mr. Peacock asked the Treasurer ' whether, seeing the disastrous condition of the settlement lately formed at Cam- den Harbor, any provision has been made for the return of the members of the Northern Expedition, and whether, in the event of abandonment of the settle- ment, and the purchase-money of the holders of land-orders will be returned.' His reason for asking the question was « that Camden Harbor settlement, which was nearly in the same latitude with Adam Bay, had been abandoned, and that they had not heard from the expe- dition in the latter place for a very con- siderable time. It was to be hoped that the Government would see that the lives of the Northern Territory party were not sacrificed ; for at the date of the last intelligence the expedition was ...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) At last the new vessel, which has been named the " Geraldton Lass," has been launched, and is now making ready to compete with our other coasting craft. As she lies on the water she is a very smart looking craft, a regular clipper in appearance and it is hoped will be a good one to go. In her building every care was taken that she should be put together very strong. Of course her lines do not please every one, some considering she over hangs too much in the stern, others that she is too sharp for- ward, but there never was a vessel or anything else that suited all people ; her builder is satis- fied she will prove a fast and good sea-boat, which we shall be better able to judge of when she returns from Fremantle. To-day we have a large meeting of Flock-' owners, who desire to see some law framed for their better protection against the spread of infection by scabby flocks. On the flats they have been holding what we may term " monster meeti...

THE WORKING OF THE LAND ACT IN VICTORIA. (The Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

THE WORKING OF THE LAND ACT IN VICTORIA. (The Australasian.) I The experience of the working of the Land Act as to the areas opened at Warrnambool, repeats the story already told of Caperdown. The difference is one of semblance merely. The competitors may not be quite so many, but the land is worse and the eagerness and excitement greater. Considering that settlement has marched farther in this direction, and that probably more is known of the capacity of the soil to support settlement, the gambling fever created by the law must ba held accountable for a great deal. A sensible tradesman of Williams- town, for instance, whose desire for land, even of low average quality, led him hither, rode over a large portion of the ground, and learned so much, that he re- turned to Melbourne without taking one chance in the lottery. His opinion was no uncommon one, and he never repeated it without obtaining assent ; but all heads were not so cool as his. On the contrary, never was the western dis...

GORILLAS AT THE MELBOURNE MUSEUM. [From The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

GORILLAS AT THE MEL- BOURNE MUSEUM. [From The Australasian.] The following letter has appeared in The Argus : " The under-brush swayed rapidly just ahead, and presently before us stood an immense male gorilla. He had gone through the jungle on his all-fours ; but when he saw our party he erected himself, and looked us boldly in the face. He stood about a dozen yards from us, and was a sight, I think, I shaÜ never forget. Nearly six feet high (he proved four inches shorter), with immense body, huge chest, and great muscular arms, with fiercely-glaring grey eyes, and a hellish expression of face, which seemed to me like some night-mare vision: thus stood before us this king of the African forest."-P. DuChaillu's « Equatorial Africa," p. 70. SIR,-I have now placed in the National Museum a male gorilla a foot higher than the magnificent one referred to in the above quotation from M. Du- Chaillu's book, which for some few years has been the glory of the Zoological department of the Briti...

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, APRIL 4, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

Jfrtft «ajítte * IL gL »traes. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shukspeare. IT is high time that some more effec- tual steps are taken for the purpose of rescuing this colony from the great loss yearly incurred, as well as disgrace for which it is remarkable among the Aus- tralian settlements, arising from the almost universal prevalence throughout its sheep runs, of that fell disease so well known by the name of SCAB. The loss caused to the sheep owner has been brought home to all in that position, and is made familiar to the public by the outcry made every now and then against the duty upon the tobacco necessary for dressing a scabby flock. We were scarcely prepared however to find that apart from the loss to individuals in short crops of wool, and a consequent lessening of the export, the^colony is really suffering in another and a very impor- tant manner from the bad name we have in the other colonies on account ...

WINE AS IT IS. (Chambers's Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

WINE AS IT IS. {Chambers*s Journal.) It would perhaps be rash to assert that the old motto, In vino veritas, deserves no faith whatever ; but certainly experience goes greatly against the belief that there is any truth in the wine of modern days. Por anything we know to the contrary, matters may have been just as bad in the days of the Luculluses-nay, even the gods themselves may have been cheated in their Nectar. But we do know that whilst the British public are every day becoming more of a wine-drinking people -and probably just because they are be- coming so-the adulteration of wine is every day practiced to a larger extent, and brought to a greater perfection. Genuine wine can no doubt be obtained, and, as it happens, too, wine of the most wholesome sort, and at comparative low prices. But it also happens that this class of wine has not yet come into gene- ral favor in England. That the higher priced wines most in demand must be taken largely on trust as to the genuine- ness, we...

RUSSELL ON CANADA. [From The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

RUSSELL ON CANADA [From Hie Australasian.'] We take shame to oui'selves for not having previously noticed the work of the remarkable historian of the Crimean war, upon a Gountry which recent events have brought forward into exceptional importance. Till a few months ago, British North America was, to use Prince Metternich's insolent description of Italy, to all but its natives merely a geographical expression. The emigration to it was from time to time considerable, but never a quarter of that to the United States ; and such as it was, proceeded principally from Scotland and Ireland. To most Englishmen Canada in particular was only a name. The Yankees, who best knew her value, were constantly running her down. The press of Boston and New York was con- trasting her tardy growth with the leviathan progress of the great Republic. The English press re-echoed the slanders, and even leading Parliamentary men pointed to British North America as an instance of the blighting effect of connexi...

THE FLINDERS. [From the Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 August 1865

THE FLINDERS. [From the Australasian.'] Mr. Tooth of Seward and Marsh's sta- tion, on the Fliuders, has given us a few fragmentary but authentic particulars re- specting the route from Port Denison to that country. Mr. Tooth describes the countiy in the neighborhood of the Flin- ders, as being of a very splendid descrip- tion for pastoral purposes, equalling any- thing of the same extent to be seen, in any of the colonies. From Port Denison to the Bogie publichouse, forty miles : from thence to Selheim's station, twenty eight miles ; from thence to the station of Earl Brothers, thirty miles ; thence to Mount M'Connell, twenty-fiive miles ; thence to the Suttor publichouse, eight miles ; thence to Rellett's to the Desert Waterholes, by Amelia Creek, seventy miles. For this distance along the coun- try, in dry seasons, is rather defiecient of water, but is well grassed. Sufficient of the former, however, for the actual neces- sities of stock will generally be found, especially at Selh...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 August 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) I have but little news for you this week. On Thursday, the 3rd Instant, at the North Fre- mantle Bridge works, one of the chain gang made a rush at one of the sentinels, but the pensioner was on his guard and favored his assailant with a shot through the arm, which quieted his belligerent propensities. The Lass of Geraldion arrived on her first trip on Monday last from the Bay, where she was built; she is a fine strong sea-boat, far superior to the Mary Ann, the List coaster built at that port, which has for some time been on the stocks for repairs. The same evening the Sea Spray put back after being out two days in an ineffectual attempt to reach the Bay. Warder Hollis left the Hospital on Tuesday last, quite convalescent. At our Volunteer meeting on the evening of the 8th Instant, great dissatisfaction was ex- pressed at the lax discipline prevailing in the Corps, and some stringent rules were devised for correcting the evil. The Clarence P...

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 August 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) News from this part of the country at present is very scarce and some of it not good. A few days ago an old settler of 30 years' standing, named Rowland, had removed from a settled homestead to a new place on the Irwin Flats, and had been there only three days when, from some unknown cause, the house caught fire and burned everything he had, including har- ness, implements, &c, leaving the family with nothing more than they had about them at the time. They had some little money in the house in notes and silver, the latter of course was re- covered, but the notes were burned. Another man, Taylor, on the Chapman, had his house burned, but saved a great part of his goods. In both instances the fire commenced in the thatch, but there is no suspicion as to how it originated. If pleasure in prospect would satisfy a people we should be the most contented of mortals : we have long been complaining about our jetty and landing accommodation ...

CULTIVATION AND TREATMENT OF FLAX. [From The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 August 1865

CULTIVATION AND TREATMENT OF FLAX. [From The Australasian.'] Max bas been Cultivated in most of the European countries for centuries back, both for the sake of the valuable fibre which it yields, and on account of the oil obtained for its seeds. And even now, when by the introduction and general use of cotton, flax has been partly superseded by the former, it has nevertheless scarcely lost in importance for manufacturing purposes, and its culture forms in several parts of Europe a not unimportant branch of husbandry ; and we see no reason why it should not do the same in Australia, where, judging by the few experiments hitherto made, it grows with equal, if not with greater, luxuriance than at home, and where the almost unlimited extent of agricultural land seems to invite the husbandman to reap additional harvests by the introduction of other plants suitable to our climate. Though many ot our readers will probably be well ac- quainted with the cultivation and treatment of flax, hav...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 August 1865

. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8¡ W. A. Times. MB. EDITOB,-I beg to acknowledge Mr. Broun's second edition revised and corrected ; it is a very mild attempt to strengthen a false position. One of the very oldest roads in this district is that which runs parallel with the base line toTangedinand Beverley, opened when Messrs. Broun and Fleay were very little boys; this has by degrees been extended until it stretches in one continuous line for more than one hundred and fifty miles. It is the line chosen by Messrs. Dempster in communicating with their far distant stations, and it is used by others in their occasional visits With fat stock and wool to Tork. The nineteen miles spoken of by Mr. Broun as private pro- perty, constitute a part of the aforesaid one hundred and fifty, and there is every likelihood that this line wül continue to be the most im- portant one leading to Tork from the Southern districts. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, . JOHN SEWELL, «TUN. Beverley, August 5...
