SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 August 1865

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The mail leaves Adelaide two days later than the appointed time, in consequence of the P. and O. steamer Salsette breaking down between Sydney and Melbourne. The aborigines in the North have been suf- fering great privations owing to the scarcity of kangaroo and wallabies, which constitute their ordinary food, and under the pressure of starvation they have committed serious depre- dations on the flocks and herds of the settlers. The Government are recommended by the Press to take measures to grant the natives immediate relief. It is expected that the Parliament will close in a few days. The business recently before it has been of great importance. The estimates have passed the House of Assembly. There has been considerable excitement owing to Judges Boothby and Gwynne having ruled in the Supreme Court that the Local Courts Act is invalid, on the ground that the Constitu-   tion Act gives no power to the Legislature to appoint Courts of Law. The Chief Ju...

THE BEST MANNER OF TREATING SCAB. [From Curr's Prize Essay.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 August 1865

THE BEST MANNER OF TREATING SCAB. ?From Cunt's Prize Essay.~\ Sheep are cured of scab by ridding them of the scab acari (and of its eggs), the result of whose presence on that animal are those symp- toms and consequences which are known as « scab." The conditions practically necessary to the cure of scab are now so well known, and have been so fully and frequently tested, that with- out affirming that science holds in store no better remedy for that disease, or that better remedies are at this moment known, it may at all events be considered to be established that a cure may safely be calculated on by any one .who will take-advantage of what is well known on the subject. So full and conclusive is the evidence on this head, that it may be inferred, when success has not attended the remedy to which I allude, that some departure from the at- tendant conditions of success has taken place ; in other words, that the failure is referable, not to the efficiency of the dressing, hut to its m...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 August 1865

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) I had just posted my last budget on Thurs- day morning, when up went the blue flag upon the hill, signalising a ship coming in ; we were not long conjecturing what vessel it could be, for a splendid fair breeze was driving her along at the speed of a "racehorse," and we could, soon after distinguish by her colors, and by the use of the whip at the main, that it was the "Racehorse," entered at London for Swan River. During the week she has discharged her living freight and is now laid on for India. According to pi'omise the Amateur Dramatic Company made their first appearance on Thurs | day last and following evening, and acquitted themselves in a most creditable manner. I at- tended- upon both evenings, and on Friday noticed many of the Perth Corps, whom I after- wards heard acknowledge that they were not only pleased with, hut highly surprised at the proficiency of their Fremantle brethren-an opinion I have since heard universally endorsed. ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. Á. Time*. SIB,-As the Press is the only medium by which matters of general importance can be brought before the public, I take the liberty (should you he pleased to give the insertion) of calling attention to the following facts :-About sixteen months back, Beard and Shufflebotham, both of this District, were convicted the one of" stealing and the other of receiving certain sheep the property" of Mr. John Parker (also of this District), and sentenced^ respectfully to 7 year» and 5 years Penal Servitude. Since then how» ever many circumstances have come to light which have proved clearly to the most re- spectable settlers of this quarter, that these men have been convicted wrongfully, inasmuch as it can be clearly proved that Mr. John Parker never lost any sheep, and further that Beard's books will show that the sheep said to be stolen were bought and paid forby him. One thing must be evident, that if the sheep were not Mr. Parker's (which can ...

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 18 August 1865

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. It is understood that at the meeting of the Council this day, the Petition Com mitti e will bring forward their Eeport, upon which of course a discussion will follow, and if the members are not too prolix in their observations, the fate of the endeavor made by the colonists to obtain Representative privileges will be decided. If, &s is generally anticipated, the Council acts upon its supposed power to reject the Petition, although it may fulfil ali the requirements of the Imperial Act, it will then be necessary for some energetic action being taken, to bring our desires for an alteration in the Legislature, more directly before the Home Government and the Imperial Parliament, and show how completely futile, in'the case of this colony, was the passing of the Act in question, if it still remains in the power of some half-dozen individuals, to refuse what it was in- tended to place within reach of the ex- pressed desire of a majority of its house- holders. ...

Mining Reports. GWALLA MINE. July 28, 1865. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 25 August 1865

Mining Reports, GWALLA MINE. July 28, 1865. The 30-fathom level N.B. of shaft on the course of the lode I have let on contract, to drive 8 fathoms at the rate of six pounds, fifteen shillings per fathom. There is not at the pre- sent time much ore in this drive, which has to be continued to drain the bottom of D Shaft, and also to prove if the ore continues from the bottom of the l8 fathom to the 30 fathom level,« as there is at the present time water in the D shaft. The stopes in the 25 fathom level is still working by two men, and from it we are raising some dredge-ore. D Shafl.-There is a great improvement in this shaft since my last report. I have sunk it three fathoms during this last month, which has caused the improvement mentioned, but we are obliged to suspend the sinking further for the present on account of the water being in the shaft. I have now let a contract to drive N.E. of shaft on the course of the lode, at the rate of four pounds per fathom, and also let two fatho...

FREMANTLE. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 25 August 1865

FREMANTLE. [From our own Correspondent."] The past week was opened by the annual ball of the Odd Fellows, which, took place at theFremason's Hotel on Friday evening thelSth Instant. There were not so many lovers of the light fantastic present as upon former occasions Earlier in the day the Order marched in pro- cession to Church, and went through* the usual formula of an anniversary day. The ''New Perseverance" left for Batavia on Friday having several horses on board for that market. By the " Les Trois Amis " from Champion Bay, I learn that Messrs. Bateman's whaling party have all their casks and try pots filled with oil, and can obtain no fresh ones at the Bay, consequently they have been compelled to let prizes eseape. The take now is about 30 tuns ; being more than has been taken in one season for several years past. We have lately heardagreatdeal about the Gal linule, but only within the last few da\rs have we seen any near Fremantle, when numbers havebeen fouud closetothe beac...

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 25 August 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our own Correspondent.) Three native prisouers, two of whom were charged with murder, managed to effect their escape from the Newcastle goal, being heavily ironed, I hear, at the time, and are now at large ; measures were immediately taken to reappre hend them but up to the date of this I had not heard of their being recaptured ; I fear they will give the j>olice a great deal of trouble be- fore tliey are again caught as they are all despe- rate villains ; when been taken into Newcastle from here they made a most determined attack upon the constable who had them in charge and who, had the prisoners not been slightly secured in some way at the time, would have come off second best. Two of the most notorious hut-robbers we have had on the Plains for a long time, were nicely trapped the other day, and, I dare say, are by this safe (?) in the Newcastle goal. I have omitted previously to state that one of our settlers tried his baud at wine-making last summer, a...

A BOY'S COURAGE. (From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 25 August 1865

A BOY'S COURAGE. (From a Correspondent.) I write to you as to a boy's bravery and faithfulness. David Hacket, a lad of 13, the son of a pen- sioner (deceased), was hut keeper to the Messrs. Clarkson at their eastern station. On 30th, July last, when alone at the hut four natives attacked him, his gun snapped but he knocked down one with the stock ; they then threw him down and severely beat him (he still bears the marks), and three of them would have killed him but the fourth prevented them. On the evening of the 31st while he and poor Edward   Clarkson were at supper, six spears were thrown at them, one wounding the latter mortally, and one wounding Hacket slightly in the arm. Hacket seized his gun and the natives ran away. The boy got his wounded master into the hut, and tended him truly and kindly for six days, reading to him and praying with him, and although alone and not knowing when the savages might return (they did return once and he drove them off with his gun...

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. [The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 25 August 1865

NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. [The Australasian.'} From an official report by Mr. Jardine, police magistrate at Somerset, Port Al- bany, to the Colonial" Secretary at Bris- bane, we make the following extracts : Someeset, Maech 1. The portions of the countiy to which my ob- servations will particularly apply is that which may correctly be termed the York Peninsula proper, and comprises the land lying on the northward of a line drawn from the estuary of the Kennedy River, at the head of Newcastle Bay, to the opposite or northwest coast. The general course of the Kennedy River runs in this line, and from the head of the tideway to the north-west coast the breadth of the land does not exceed six miles. The mouth of the river falling into the sea a short distance to the southward of the Barn Island, will be nearly met by the western extremity of this line. The land on the neck thus formed presents singular features. There is no defined or visible water- shed; a succession of low, irregular ridges...

Elsewhere the pending decision of the Legis- lative Council upon the most important politi- cal question which ever came before it, would have created no little excitement and discussion out of doors, but the people of Western Aus- tralia seem to be an exception to the general quality of the sister communities, as if their blood has so.longremained stagnant, that nothing ing else than a theatening of personal ease and prosperity will arouse them.
