DONGARA, IRWIN RIVER. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

DONGARA, IRWIN RIVER. (From our own Correspondent.) The largest assembly yet held of the settlers of this particular district took place on the 18th of this month, in the building recently erected by Hamersly & Co., in consequence of a public meeting being convened by the Eesident, to take into consideration the advisability of doing away with a road that had been asked for, and which could not by any chance be of any benefit to either the people on the Flats or the Irwin, or any advantage to the Government, and ask for that they really "did require-. which was a road to the river port. The Eesident being called to the chair, at once opened the meeting by explaining the object, reading a Petition for a road from the Irwin to the Greenough, as well as a letter from Mr. I. C. Burges, informing the Government that the construction of a road where requested would be a waste of means and men, as there was not or never could be any trafile on that line of road j it would not open ...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W.A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W.]A. Times. SIE,-It appears to me that the settlers at at Champion* Bay made one important omission in their resolutions, when recommending the passing of a Scab Act. One of the first resolu- tions, I think, should have called for an alter- ation in_the excessive duty levied on leaf Tobacco, -when used for dressing sheep, as this unjust, injurious, impolitic, and unstatesman like Act has'in a great measure been the cause of the'unusual spreading of that disease amongst our flocks. This extra duty was put on at a time when the Revenue was low, and the Government of the day were hardjsetinwhat direction to look to find some imported article - which could bear an increase of duty, and in an evil hour (some-one suggesting that the sheep farmers were prosperous, and had no power to resist Class Taxation) this measure was passed, and the Revenue has received an annual in- crease of a few hundred pounds, at the expense of a decrease in the value of our...

FREMANTLE. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

FREMANTLE. [From our own Correspondent."] GALIIINUIIE AGAIN.-Early on Monday last before the break of day, one of the Police found a bag in the street, which upon opening he fe und to contain some fine fat fowls ; not far distant from the bag the constable also met a man whom he arrested " on suspicion" and walked him oS to durance rile; upon in- quiry it was found that the fowls were the property of Dr. Attfield from whose place they had been stolen. The case came before the Magistrate on Monday, and for want of evi- dence the prisoner was discharged. It is generally supposed that some keen sportsman saw the said fowls in the Doctor's garden, and having nothing but Gallinule and their de- structive propensities in his head resolved to rid the worthy Doctor of the'pests, and having secured a bag waited qu'ebly until they had retired to roost, pounced down upon and bag- ged his prey, then marched off in triumph, ignorant of his mistake until a cock confined in the bag with a loud cro...

fertïj êKtftU # Firnes. " 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, SEPTEMBER 1, 1S65. WE had not space last week to allow of our noticing the curiosities in the debate in the Legislative Council upon THE PETITION. First upon our list comes the speech of the hon. mover "that the prayer be acceded to." On this occasion we can scarcely congratulate Mr. Samson on the stand he made for the recognition of the people's right to be represented in the Legislature, as although he stood alone in voting for it, the sentiments he expressed were but lukewarm in its favor, and indeed as he was told by the mover of the amendment, more consonant with the views afterwards adopted by the Council. " However as an old and faithful advocate of popular opinions, and even in j this instance, if we are to judge by his ' speech, against his own convictions brought forward and voted for à popular cause, the settlers will willingly fo...

THE DENISON PLAINS ASSOCIATION. (Australian Mail.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

THE DENISON PLAINS ASSOCIATION. (Australian Mail.) The following correspondence has been forwarded us for publication : Tien Tsin Harbor, 27th May, 1865 - To the directors of the Denison Plains Pastoral Company (Limited), Melbourne. -Gentlemen,-In continuance of my re- ports forwarded to you from Fremantle, which I hope arrived all safe, I send you an account of our voyage from there to here. "We had fine trade winds as far as or nearly to the North-West Cape, since which time we have had nothing but a series of adverse winds. We were two hundred miles north of Camden Harbor, hoping to get a wind to take us into Roebuck Bay, in which we were disap- pointed ; and, after coming as far as Nichol Bay, we found ourselves with only five days' water on board. Such being the state of affairs, it was decided to land the stock, stores, &c, at Tien Tsin Har- bor, thirty-five miles from Nicol Bay. To this port we therefore proceeded, and having landed 1565 sheep, 35 mares, 1 Arab entire...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. FEARFUL GALE AND LOSS OF LIFE IN TABLE BAY. SEVENTEEN SAILING VESSELS AND A STEAMER WRECKED. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. FEARFUL GALE AND LOSS OF LIFE IN TABLE BAY. SEVENTEEN SAILING VESSELS AND A STEAMER WRECKED. By the Barque Doon, Captain Monro, which has arrived from Mauritius, after a splendid passage of 25 days, we have Cape papers to the 24th of May. From the South African Ad- vertiser of the 24th we quote full details of a tremendous gale which occurred in Table Bay: Advertiser and Mail Office, Cape Town, Thursday afternoon. It is but with a sad heart that we sit down to describe the tragic catastrophes of yesterday, while the dead bodies of those whom only 24 short hours ago we reckoned among our fastest friends are still drifting among the tangled sea- weed, or tossed in cruel sport beneath the hungry crawling foam. Such a scene, or rather such a succession of wild and horrible scenes as were presented yesterday was never witnessed at the Cape before. We speak not now of the loss of property alone, though that too, was wholly unprecedented. But worse by far than that was t...

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W.A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 1 September 1865

Correspondence. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. SIR, — There are those among us who have borne with manly fortitude the various struggles we have had to encounter in our adopted country ; some who trusted but little to Imperial bounty, have quietly submitted to the stigma entailed on their children, by the introduction of a class from England, that the present State have not provided for in equalizing the sexes — how are the poor Aborigines demoralized by their intercourse with them. How imperceptibly the habits of those we associate with affect us — a return to former associations only con- vinces us of the difference that has taken place without our perceiving it. How will our children view our treatment of the Aborigines, if West- ern Australia ever attains the position in the Australias we fondly hope she will, should they compare the records of two events that occurred almost simultaneously ? One in Melbourne, reported in the Herald of 21st June, when ...

CHEMICAL ELUCIDATIONS.— FARM-YARD MANURE. (FROM THE ECONOMIST.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

CHEMICAL ELUCIDATIONS. EAEM-TARD MANURE. (PEOJÜ THE ECONOMIST.) It is quite consoling to thoso who know something of the difficulties of practical farming, after all the de- nunciations of farming practices and farm- ing ignorance which'have been launched from the high tables at agricultural meet- ings and in scientific treatises, to find that actual practice and true science are not wide asunder in English husbandry," as some would-be advisers have asserted. Husbandry is an art of great simplicity, * dealing as it does with the grand but simple working of nature. The ordinary practices of a careful and intelligent farmer are commonly such as meet with the approval of the scientific chemist who has had opportunities of testing his experience in the laboratory by the «very day operations of husbandry. Not that we would use< this as any argument against imparting to the farmer or the farmer's son all or any scientific know- ledge which may immediately appertain to his avoca...

GUILDFORD INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

GUILDFORD INSTITUTE. THE opening of the Mechanics' Hall at Guildford-an event of Tuesday last-is a fact of more significance and weight than may yet have been attributed to it. We cannot look upon an occasion like this as one only worthy of being honored by " Negro melodies and Native dances ;" nor regard an institution which may be- come of incalculable value to the neigh- borhood, as if it were only a temple dedi- cated to Momiis and Terpsichore. At any rate we prefer to look at it under an- other aspect. It is an event which in a new country marks the progress of so- ciety, and inaugurates an eera. In a spot over which, not long ago, wandered a few degraded members of the human Family, without a thought beyond those devoted to the necessities of the hour, is now erected a building in which will congregate many whose faculties have been awakened to the enjoyment of pleasures as far beyond the* conception of savages as those of Heaven are beyond the grasp of the most cultivated Rea...
