POST-OFFICE ORDERS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864
POST-OPPICE ORDERS. We have repeatedly called attention to the losses incurred by men of business, in Perth and Fremantle, from the non receipt of small outstanding accounts in country districts. Post-office orders up to ¿85, payable at Perth, would remedy a great deal of this evil, and an extra clerk would furnish the necessary accommodation. Since the establishment of the new Local Courts, it is almost impossible to recover sums of small amount, where the parties reside in different districts. The costs chiefly falling upon the plaintiff, he prefers giving up his claim, rather than waste time in taking out a summons in a Court 20 or 30 miles off. Could the debt be remitted through the Post Office, the debtor would be deprived of the pretext that he has no means of remitting a small sum. The Share-list of the Roebuck Bay Company closed yesterday at noon. The share- holders entertain very sanguine expectations, and the excitement is spreading throughout the Colony. New companies are...
THE CULTURE OF TOBACCO. PRACTICAL DIRECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 1 September 1864
THE CULTURE OF TOBACCO. PRACTICAL DIRECTIONS. The subjoined information on this subject forms the substance of a pamphlet by Mr. H. M. Otter, a native of Virginia and an experienced tobacco grower. The pamphlet is published by Messrs. Heard, Owen, & Dudgeon, tobacco manufacturers, of Melbourne, who express a strong belief in the reliability of the directions given by Mr. Otter : "In selecting the kinds of tobacco best adapted for the climate of this colony and most profitable to the grower, I choose first Virginia and Kentucky ; next to those I place Florida and Connecticut; and of the lighter kinds, suitable for cigars, &c, I prefer Yarra, Havanna, Cuba, and Turkish. "As regards the soil, the best in flat or low country is a loamy or rich sandy soil ; but if on the slope of a hill-the aspect should be due east-a red loam is best, and it produces the finest quality of any soil. Stiff and retentive soils are the very worst that can be chosen. Tobacco whilst growing ha...

ALL CURES MADE EASY. Holloway's Ointment. Bad Legs, Ulcerous Sores, Bad Breasts, and Old Wounds. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
ALL CURES HADE EASY. Holloway's Ointment. Bad Legs, Ulcerous Sores, Bad Breasts, and Old Wounds. No description of wound, sore, or ulcer can resist the healing properties of this excellent Ointment. The worst cases readily assume a healthy appearance whenever this medicament is applied; sound flesh springs up from the bottom of the wound, inflammation of the surround- ing skin is arrested, and a complete and permanent cure quickly follows the use of the Ointment. Piles, Fistulas, ft Internal Inflammation. These distressing and weakening dis- eases may with certainty be cured by the sufferers themselves, if they will use Holloway's Ointment, and closely attend to the printed instructions. It should be well rubbed upon the neighbouring parts, when all obnoxious matter will be re- moved. A poultice of bread and water may sometimes be applied at bed time with advantage; the most scrupulous cleanliness must be observed. If those who read this paragraph will bring it under the notice of s...

[advertisement.] I Holhway's Pills and Ointment.-Bilious and Stomach Complaints.-All diseases springing from foul blood, malarious districts, or over- heated atmospheres, can be cured by these noble remedies, Fever, ague, influenza, stomach complaints, and bilious disorders are easily met and readily conquered by these unrivalled medicaments. Both act harmoniously in pre- serving the pure and best materials of the body, and in expelling all that is rebundant, effete, or corrupt. Thus the cure is not slight and ephemeral, but complete and permanent, as thousands who have personally tested, their power have gratefiúly testified. Invalids in all quarters of the globe, whose listlessness of mind and shallowness of complexion warned them- selves and their friends of some undermining disease, have been thoroughly renovated by Holloway's remedies. THE thorough-bred horse KHO RASSAN will stand this next season at the stables of the undersigned, on the following terms, viz :-Thorough- bred m...
QUEENSLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
QUEENSLAND. The Cultivation of Cotton and Sugab in Queensland.-The Brisbane Courier states that the cotton plantations have not been damaged by the wet weather, as was at first expected they would be. The sugar crops have scarcely suffered at all, and many persons are expressing a desire to employ capital in the cultivation of the cane. Hitherto the experiment has been tried by a few only who have, as it wore, acted as pioneers for the more timid proportion of the community. At Cleveland the crops are look- ing promising, especially since the continuance of dry weather; and one gentleman (the Hon. Captain Hope) has manufactured sugar from about two acres of canes, which, when ready for cutting, wore blown down some six weeks ago. The remainder will be required for planting in land which he has been having ploughed for the purpose. This may be taken as a proof that his experience has been of a favorable nature ; and, although many months must necessarily, elapse before Captain Hope c...
PRESENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
PRESENTS. Woman, with whom all natural im- pulses linger so much longer than with men, who still yields to the weaknesses we have outgrown, who still likes to go fine, to dance, to embrace, to weep woman dearly loves the business of giving and receiving gifts. It is a natural con- sequence with her of regard, affection, gratitude, to give the object of it all some sensible token. Hence the much-satirised sermon-cases and slippers. If she has not much to give, she is not ashamed to give little. No doubt her habit of dealing with small sums makes her stand less on her dignity in this particular ; and, more- over, she has her hands-as in the case of the slippers-instruments of small avail in the gifts of men who must trans- act all such affairs in hard cash. The love of spending money is at once a more universal and more manageable passion with women than with men. A woman can be always spending money, and not, in the end, have spent a great deal-a problem as yet unsolved by man ; and ...
ON THE UTILITY OF PLANTING TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
ON THE UTILITY OF PLANTING TREES. A judicious writer says that in planting trees along roads or public walks the Belgians have a first-rate system. " These trees (elms or limes) are always planted of a considerable size ; by previous trans- planting or digging round them in the nursery, they have an abundant mass of roots. When planted out, the gardeners cut off the head, leaving either bare poles or only a few twigs; thus at once in- suring a vigorous growth of the trees, and dispensing with all need of stakes. After suffering the trees to grow un- touched for two or three years, all the branches are cut off below the strongest leading shoot, which is left to form the head of the future tree ; and this in a few years becomes as straight and hand- some as one not headed, and far more vigorous." The roads of France, like most continental countries, being kept up by Government, are generally linked with rows of trees. Sometimes the walnut, cherry, apple, pear, and other fruit trees ar...
LONDON WOOL REPORT. JULY 25, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
LONDON WOOL REPORT. July 25,1864 The third and most important sale of the year commenced on the 21st July, the arrivals to date comprising the enormous and unprece- dented quantity of-Australian, 29,812 bales ; Port Phillip, 50,489 bales ; Van Diemen's Land, 13,179 bales; Adelaide, 12,368 bales; Swan River, 387 bales ; Now Zealand, 25,152 bales ; Cape, 10,633 bales; total, 142,020 bales, The attendance of buyers both home and foreign was good, but not so strong in numbers as at the commencement of the May series ; biddings, however, were animated and prices may be quoted about the average of last sales. The continuance of present rates depends much upon the progress of harvest and monetary operations.
THE WAR IN DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
THE WAR IN DENMARK. The German Powers lost not a moment after the expiration of the armistice in renewing hostilities against the Danes. The armistice terminated on Saturday night, June 25, and at 6 o'clock on the morning of the 26th, the Prus- sian batteries opened fire across the Strait upon the Danish works at Alsen. For three suc- cessive days the fire was kept up. At 2 a.m. on June 29 the Prussians commenced the construction of pontoon bridges across the Strait to Alsen, whereupon the Prussian and Danish batteries opened fire. Within one hour the construction of pontoons was completed, and shortly afterwards 11 battalions of the Prussian army crossed the Alsen Sound, north of Sön derborg. The Danish troops were beaten back after stubbornly contesting each position. At 5 p.m. the Prussians had reached Vollerup and Ulkeböl. Some street fighting took place in Sönderborg. The passage of the Alsen Sound by the main body of the Prussians was effected in 120 boats, conveying 3,000 men...
The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
%\z êpn Catan. To the Editob op the W. A. Times. Sib,-On Monday last a notice was given to the parade by our gallant adjutant, in which it was stated that there would be some prizes for the Volunteers to compete for on our anniver- sary, and that there would be a dinner at the Freemasons' Hotel, to which every member would be admitted at the sum of 7s. 6d., which I think an exorbitant price ; not but that I can afford it, but it would appear as if that price was fixed so as to exclude all working classes, and make room for the higher classes. . I think if Captain Leake were here he would not allow any dinner, unless all members could be present. On one occasion he stated that he liked to see every member of the Corps present, if wo had but bread and cheese. I hear that our jtmior officers are of the same opinion. I am, Sir, Your most obedient servant. Justice. . September 6,1864-.

The War in New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
The Wear in New Zealand. A correspondent of the Otago Daily Times, under date August 3, writes : " From the camp up the Waikato no news has come to hand of the presence of rebels in their vicinity having been noticed, and it may bo reasonably expected that the Maories yob remaining in these districts are too busy at- tending to their cultivations to give our troops much occupation at present. Auckland, Aug. 8. There is no very startling news hore since I last wrote. We aro going to make peace, and to be forgiven by the natives for all we have done to thein. The Governor, General Came- ron, Mr. Fox, and Mr. Whitaker, are now at Tauranga; and we learn by H.M.S. Harrier, that arrived here yesterday, that two meetings have been held with the natives who have already submitted-some 300 in number, while about 1,000 more are waiting at some distance to learn what will be done. General Cameron has informed the natives that one-fourth of theil' land will be declared confiscated. While the re...
THE WAR IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
THE WAR IN AMERICA. General Grant, after trying his strength against General Lee on the Chickahoininy, abandoned that attempt as he had abandoned others, and by a sudden movement to the left, which was so far successful as to be unmo- lested, transported his whole force to the southern side of Richmond, where his colleague, General Butler, was already encamped. After the junction of the two armies the Federal commander marched upon Petersburg, a town of considerable importance, lying about 20 miles south of Richmond on the right bank of the James River. The assault failed. Grant succeeded at first in carrying by storm a por- tion of the outer fortifications, and capturing some prisoners and guns, and on the next day he attacked the inner line of defences, but in this attempt he was repulsed with tremendous slaughter. Twice during the same day was this desperate assault renewed, but all the attacks failed in succession, and at length even this obstinate commander desisted from the at...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
VICTORIA. The Governor has declined to receive the deputation from the Anti-Transportation League, on grounds that it would be inex- pedient for the head of the Constitutional Government of the colony to enter into personal communication with an irresponsible body or with individuals on questions having reference to public policy. Making ttp fob Lost Time.-The powers of the Btomach to endure long fasts and digest the food of several days in a few hours, are often developed to a wonderful degree. The camel drivers between Cairo and Suez fast during the thirty hours of the journey ; but an Arab, who dines often on a handful of dates, will some- times be heard to boost that he can eat a sheep at a meal. The Bedouin, when travelling in the desert, takes as daily food two draughts of water, and two morsels of baked flour and milk. But, when meat is before him, and he is not travelling, ho can eat and digest as much as would satisfy six Europeans. A native Aus- tralian, attendant upon Eyr...
The English Mail REACHED Perth unexpectedly yesterday, September 7, at noon. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864
The English Mail Beached Perth unexpectedly yesterday, Sep- tember 7, at noon. The nows of greatest interest is that there is no war, norlikely to be any, in which our country isjnvolved. The Danes and Germans were en- deavouring to arrange the terms of peace j some sharp fighting had, however, occurred after the conclusion of the late armistice, in which the Danes got the worst of it. The latest rumour was that the duchy of Lauenburg is to be surrendered to Prussia, Denmark being allowed to retain a portion of North Schleswig. An influential deputation of colonists waited upon the Postmaster-General, Lord Stanley of Alderley, on July 14, to remonstrate against the increased rate of postage to the colonies. Numerous petitions on the subject have been presented to the House of Commons, and so much has been gained that the increased rates are not to be persisted in until communications shall have been opened with the colonies. The great event of the month has been the four days' debat...
