Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) The Favorite and the Mystery arrived on the 1st instant, the former from Port Gregory and Champion Bay, and the latter from Champion Bay. By the former vessel Messrs. Bateman's whaling party have returned, bringing with them heavier spoil, and, consequently, lighter hearts, than they have done for several seasons past, having secured nearly twenty tuns of oü. This fortunate result, I am told, is in a great measure owing to the use of the "harpoon gun," lately imported from England by Messrs. Bateman, and used this season for the first time. From what I can learn, this gun will effectually strike a fish at a distance of 50 yards, and, consequently, is a vast improvement on the old. plan of throwing the harpoon from the hand. Several of the party have obtained pearls from shells found at the Port. The Mystery is taking in stores for Mr. Pad bury's party at Nicol Bay, and will be ready for sea about Saturday next. The Flying Foam left for Champi...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 8 September 1864

West Australian Times Discite Justitiam, Moniti. Hear and be just. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1864. There is, of course, nothing original in comparing the growth of a Colony with the life of a Man. Its early struggles, its almost helpless condition at first, dependent for support upon the resources of other lands, its difficulties and wants, andthemany mistakes committed through ignorance and inexperience, remind us of the progress of human life from infancy to manhood. And even then the analogy continues. The vicissitudesin thefortunes of a new country still remind us of that continual strife in which man is engaged with the world around him ; that constant struggle to make good his footing and position. If some men are successful, many more are not so. Some colonies soon establish themselves securely among the older countries of the world, destined to pass, like them, in the course of ages, from infant weakness to power and independence, and then decline, like human life, into feeblen...

METROPOLITAN RIFLE VOLUNTEERS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

METROPOLITAN RIFLE VOLUNTEERS. This Corps celebrated their Second Anniversary on Tuesday, by the members competing for prizes which had been liberally presented for the purpose1 by some of the honorary members of the Corps. The weather was, we regret to say, very unpropitious ; a Btrong wind blowing right across the range throughout the day prevented the competitors from making good scores ; and the rain, which fell in occasional heavy showers, deprived the scene of the usual sprinkling of the fair sex. We give the scores below. Several members retired before firing their 20 rounds ; and we have therefore omitted their scores. The members in class 3 fired 5 rounds per man at each distance of 150, 200, 250, and 300 yards ; those in Class 2, 5 rounds at each distance of 200, 300, 400, and 500 yards. 3BD CLASS. Corpl.

MR. CHASE'S EXPOSURE OF THE FEDERAL FINANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

ME. CHASE'S EXPOSURE OF THE FEDEEAL FINANCES. Mr. Chose, in his farewell letter, or report, to Congress, acquaints that body with the striking fact that the revenues of the Washing- ton Government for the year ending June 30, 1864, have been only 240,000,000 dollars, while the expenditure has been 880,000,000. Di pounds sterling this is equal to £48,000,000 of receipts and £176,000,000 of expenditure. But even this view is not complete, for he admits that two months' pay is due to the army, to meet which he has no funds. This general re- sult is one of the most fearful that we have yet seen. That the Government would have to "borrow at the rate of £100,000,000 per annum had often been said, but here is an actual result of debt incurred during the year just ended is more than £128,000,000. Every one can see at a glance that to go on for three years more at this rate is clearly impossible. The item, how- ever, whioh chiefly fixes our attention in this account, is that which states " t...

THE ANTHROPOGLOSSOS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

THE ANTHROPOGLOSSOS. One of the latest applications of me- chanical science is certainly that involved in the production of the Anthropoglossos. Eyes are made which lack only the quality of seeing, but which are undis tinguishable from the natural organ. Artificial legs, and hands, and arms, and teeth, which answer almost all the purposes of those provided by nature; but hitherto a " human tongue," and with well trained vocal organs, has been wanting.'-,. This last difliculty of mechan- ical science has now been overcome, as any person may see for himself who will visit St. James's Hall, where the Anthro- poglossos is exhibited. Here they will see a large waxen head, not unlike in its general appearance that of the late M. Jullien, with a silver funnel in its mouth. The head is not supported upon any body or pedestal, but hangs suspended by gilt chains from the ceiling. Beneath the bust, or what may be called the neck of the singing machine, there is a small glass case, containing s...

The Open Column. THE FORTUNE COPPER MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

%\t ê$tn Citait. THE FOETUNE COPPEE MINING COMPANY. TO THE EDITOB OF THE W. A. TlMES. XU TÄJS lUUÍTOH Of THE W. A. MIMES. SIB,-As manager of this Company, in the Colony, I consider it due to the many interested in its welfare, to avail myself of your open column to give them all the information in my power as to the favour- able progress of operations at the mine. By the last mail, I have received from Capt. Pemberthy a Eeport and Letter, dated the 30th ultimo, which contain most favourable news, of which I can give you only a brief outline. The stopes in the various levels are producing copper and lead ores of good character ; and grey copper ore, of good ?er centage, is being drawn up from 'earce's shaft. The 10 fathoms level, driving S.W. of the new engine shaft, shows a large deposit of black oxide. On the new sec- tion, No. 437, recently purchased (where a shaft has been sunk 10 fathoms, as a trial), the lode is from 4 to 5 feet wide, and has produced, throughout, good stones o...

THE THAMES EMBANKMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

THE THAMES EMBANKMENT. The proceedings of laying the founda- tion-stone of the splendid work now in course of execution between Westminster and Blackfriars Bridge, were impressive to a serious mind, sensible at once of the difficulties of the undertaking, of the per- fection of the means brought to bear against such difficulties, without unneces- sary sacrifice of life or money, or of the result to be achieved. The improvements in metropolitan street architecture have in later years been truly astounding ; but from this revival of architectural art ] almost in every part of the town, the i banks of the Thames seem to have been excluded, in expectation, no doubt, of the previous execution of the great public work of which we see the commencement. A remarkable feature of this important step towards the complete renovation of London is the favourable circumstances under which it is undertaken. It will form a splendid roadway, a hundred feet wide, bordered with a line of stately man- si...

FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

F E A N C E. ACCOUCHEMENT OP THE PRINCESS CLOTILDE.-The Princess Clotilde, wife of Prince Napoleon, gave birth to a son on Saturday night. The Princess and the infant Prince are both doing well. The Prince was privately baptised after the accouchement, and received the names of Napoleon Louis Joseph Jerome. The birth of another Bonaparte is an event which could scarcely happen with- out awakening interest among the poli- ticians of Europe. It is not in the pre- sent condition of France a fact merely of importance to Court chroniclers and gossips that a new member has been added to the younger branch of the Im- perial Bonaparte family. The fortunes of a younger branch have in modern France too often run in counter-currents to those of the elder not to create a general and popular idea of rivalry between the two. The Emperor Napoleon is undoubtedly one of the most successful, and has made himself one of the most popular rulers of his day. So far as we may pretend to judge of the futur...

Fremantle. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

Fremantle. '(From our own Correspondent.) THE monthly muster of our Volunteer Com- pany came off on Thursday last. The attend- ance, I was glad to observe, was above the average-an evidence of the judicious orders of the Colonel Commandant lately issued j but the marching past and the movements exhibited a want of practice-a want which a solitary monthly drill will not, I think, supply. The Flying Foam returned from Champion Bay on the 10th instant having left Fremantle on the 3rd instant only. The convict ship Merchantman dropped anchor last evening, being 72 days out from Portland -- one of the shortest passages from England on record. This is the second time this ship has brought out convicts, and on the former occa- sion she made the distance from England to Bermuda in an extraordinarily short time. Dr. Smith, R.N., is the Surgeon Superintendent, and Mr. Cooper the Religious Instructor ; both gentlemen have been here before. Her freight seem not to have been as quiet and well-be...

NOTICES OF NEW BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

NOTICES OF NEW BOOKS. Spirit-Rapping in Glasgow in 1864. A True Narrative. By One of tiiose Present. A shrewd Scot here publishes his record of the various seances held in Glasgow, " under the surveillance of some sixteen gentlemen who had engaged from London a Mr.-, warranted a medium of thirteen years' standing-an intimate of Mr. Home's, and a powerful contributor to the spirit press." The writer of the pamphlet gives the Medium due credit for his happy guesses, though he analyses them with the acuteness of mind too seldom retained at the table of the spirit rapper. It is enough for us to quote the amusing record of the seventh and last séance : AN EVENING WITH THE SPIRITS. " Purposely displayed considerable nervousness ; muttered something about its being a solemn thing to summon the Spirit of a Father-and so indeed it would be to any one believing that he was really doing so-and having at Medium's re- quest, seated ourselves opposite to him, wrote our first question. Now, we had...

West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 15 September 1864

West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1864. LAST week we touched upon the state and prospect of the Colony, so far as the con- dition of the free settlers is concerned. But there is another class of men in the Colony whose condition cannot be over- looked ; and however unpopular the sub- ject may be, even-handed justice requires that it should not be altogether ignored. It is a question that requires considerable delicacy in handling ; for although we are told by the friends of transportation that the majority of the settlers are in favour of the system, there are very few who have a good word to say for the convicts themselves. The inevitable tendency of the system is to promote hostility between the two classes. The labour of the par- tially-emancipated convict supplants the labour of the free immigrant, who is gradually pushed off the scene, as the indigenous partridge of England is com- pelled to retire before the red-legged G...

THE GRAND HOTEL, BRIGHTON. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

THE GRAND HOTEL, BRIGHTON. A large and handsome hotel, constructed by a joint-stock company, was yesterday opened for public business at Brighton. On the pre- vious Wednesday the directors Of the company and a number of the shareholders inspected the building and found that it was in every respect satisfactory and well adapted for the purpose for which it has been built. The hotel occupies the sight of the old battery on the esplanade, the land having been purchased from the Go vernment for the sum of ¿215,000, the purchasers being very agreeably surprised while excava- ting for the foundations to find that a concrete foundation had been already provided for them by the Government, which in former times had constituted the battery. The building is of great altitude, being nine stories in height, to six of which there are ornamental bronze and gold .balconies, which follow the curved outline of the exterior of the building. A stone stair- case of very noble proportions, with handsome...

DR. LIVINGSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

DR. LIVINGSTONE. The Rev. T. Binney, of London, received a letter from Dr. Livingstone, (who has himself arrived there). It is dated "Murchison's Cataracts, 3rd Dec, 1863." " I have just returned from a visit to Lake Nyassa, very weary with a tramp of 660 geographical miles. My object in going was to improve the time between July and the flood of this month, or the time when we received our recall and the period in which it is possible to take the Pioneer down to the sea, by examining whether a large river enters the lake, to account for the perennial flow of the Shire, and likewise ascertain more positively if 19,000 slaves ore really drawn annually from the lake district to Zanzibar. It is important to move about to word off fever. Active em- ployment is the best preventative. We could have done it quickly, but lost the boat we were carying past the cataracts. It broke away from some fellows who had no business in it, in a comparatively still reach of the river, and went away like...

THE CHINA AND AUSTRALIA TELEGRAPH. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 22 September 1864

THE CHINA AND AUSTRALIA TELEGRAPH. We learn from a question, of which notice has been given in Parliament, and from the public statements of the Anglo-Australian and China Telegraph Company, that it has commu- nicated its intention to Government of carrying out at once a line of telegraphy between Ran- goon and Singapore, with a view of the further extension of the line to China and Australia, so soon as the arrangements have been completed for carrying out the first section. On reference to the Admiralty charts, we find that the cable which is to connect India, starting at Rangoon, with Singapore, can be laid at a moderate depth; and that the circumstance that the telegraph follows the coast will pretty nearly leave to the choice of the engineers the depth in which the cable shall be laid, the two points tobe observed being, of course, that the cable shall be beyond the reach of anchors, and yet be accessible for repairs. No doubt can therefore exist as to the per- manent nature of...
