POSTAGE STAMPS. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

POSTAGE STAMPS. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times SIR,-The color of a postage stamp may not appear to be a matter of much importance, but the colors of the several Western Australian stamps are so continually altering, that I would fain suggest, through your columns, that the Postmaster-General should assign to each value of stamp, its own particular and distinctive color; and not alter it without some weighty reason. Business, especially in a public depart- ment, is always done best, when done according to fixed rules ; and to have a fixed rule for the colors of stamps, would be business-like and very expedient. And I would suggest that our stamps should have the same color, in con- nection with value, that the English stamps have. . I have now before me a collection of penny, twopenny, fourpenny and sixpenny, W. A. stamps, cut off letters during the last five months ; and twelve different colors are equally divided between the four descriptions of stamp. You...

SUPREME COURT—CRIMINAL SIDE. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1865. [Before His Honor the Chief Justice.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

SUPREME COURT-CRIMINAL SIDE. WEDNESDAY, August 6, 1865. [Before His Honor the Chief Justice.] Thomas Bushell, convict, capitally charged with wounding, with intent to do grievous bodily harm, George Hollis; a second count charged the intent to murder. The Prisoner admitted the wounding, but pleaded not guilty of intent to murder. The Attorney-General detailed the particu- lars of the evidence and laid particular stress upon the proofs of the intent of the prisoner, in the secretion of the knife with which the wound was subsequently inflicted. M'Bryde Broun, Registrar in the Convict Establishment, proved the prisoner to be a convict. Thomas Wellstead, a principal warder, in charge of the bake-house. On Sunday, 9th July, prisoner was employed in the bake-house from 7 in the morning to 20 minutes past 3 p.m. ; knows he was there at 2 p.m. ; the dough-knife produced was one in use there that day; I saw it there between 2 and 3 p.m I missed the knife about 20 minutes to 4 on that day.

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-I observe that, following up their old idea of looking for others to help them instead of trying to help themselves, the York sheep owners now make a difficulty to the passing a stringent Scab Act, in the existing duty upon leaf-tobacco, which they assert offers an insu- perable obstacle to their cleansing their flocks. As a sheep-owner I perfectly agree with them that Tobacco is an article they cannot do with- out, but I cannot agree that the duty is an ob- stacle to their obtaining it, while I know that there is not a flock-owner among them who can- not, if he tñesl grow as much tobacco as he pleases, and manufacture it sufficient for his purpose. This has been done successfully in too many instances, to be denied. It is well known that some of our largest sheep-owners have not purchased an ounce of leaf tobacco for two or three years past, and while we have such proofs of our ability to grow the article I, for one, protest a...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIR,-Much has been said and written about Government neglecting the survey and allot- ment of small blocks of land, but the division of this district into sections would only be a waste of labor, the much greater part being only fit for sheep runs and so must it always remain. The evü is when a piece of land has been selected (it may easily be described sufficient for the purpose) it cannot be had. With a view to immediate receipts, and not understanding that they hold the land in trust for all denominations, and not foreseeing there are others who may claim their rights, Govern- ment have in times past conceded and enacted privileges exclusive of progress, and created (unwittingly perhaps) monopolies which in time become a positive unendurable wrong. To the immigrant who having been 12 months in the colony, who has got some experience, means, and promise of assistance, and who may have selected a 40 acre block, for instance near th...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 September 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8ç W. A. Times. SIR,-Recurring to the Exports as the most valuable means of our support, and by which we are enabled to pay for the Imports, we will examine each in detail, and first of WOOL. The price of wool, its quality or even its quantity we need not enter upon j the price will depend like other articles on the demand, the quality on the care taken in breeding, and the quantity on the extent of pasturage. But the cost of pro- duction must be considered, inasmuch as it is stated by many that it has taken, and I sup- pose will take, the wool to pay the expenses, nence leaving the mutton only for profit. It is evident then the wool enables us to sell the meat at the price of the day, and be that price higher low it is the profit to the owner, if he can sell it, and his income is in proportion to the quantity of sheep he can "run,-large owners having an advantage in shepherding larger flocks. The question at issue now is-Can the sheep farmers sell...

Caroaptttoita. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times-. SIR,-Having observed in a late number of your conÊemporary an interesting article upon the Timber trade of this colony, I would wish to write a few words to you on the same subject. I have row been for three years trading regularly for timber between Port Adelaide and Mr. Yelverton's Station. I have loaded in this Bay at all times of the year, never having oc- casion to feel any anxiety for the safety of my vessel, and I shall weigh anchor to-day, with a full cargo on board, having ridden here in per-' feet safety through the roughest portion of the winter. I have visited Mr. Yelverton's Station at each return, and have been pleased and sur- prised at the great improvements he has made. Within the last two years he has built a tram road (without any aid) of more than four miles in length, carrying it forward in the face of many obstacles. He has advanced it by cut tiug through hills ; by embankments through hollows ;...

BEFORM OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. WE have been requested to publish the following : Fremantle, 6th September, 1865. MT DEAS SIB,-I have given the draft Me- morial which you placed in my hands very careful consideration, and I am obliged to say I cannot assent to it. I quite agree, and have expressed this opinion publicly, that we are scarcely in a sufficiently advanced state for unqualified self government; but I do not see that Mr. Hardey's amendment, if carried out, would place us in a better position than we are at present. True, we should obtain more non omcial members of Council, but then these members would all be nominees of the Governor and probably, owing to the short tenure of office proposed, would be even nominees of the Governor presiding, and consequently likely to be still less independent than if nominated by some previous Governor. If, therefore we are compelled to rest content with the nominee system, I think the tenure of office should be fully five years. _ But ...

Perth Horticultural Society. au Mi A Meeting was held on Wednesday last, at the Freemasons'Hotel, for thepuprose of reviv- ing the Perth Horticultural Society. The Lord Bishop of Perth having consented to occupy the chair, Mr. Barlee explained that th« object in calling the present meeting wai the re-establishment of the Horticultural Society and the pleasant Exhibitions of Fruits, Flowers, Wines, and Vegetables which used to afford so much interest to all classes, but which, unfortunately, had been allowed to drop. In reorganising the Society, however, he should be induced to go further than they had hitherto done ; there was a great want of a nursery garden where people might get choice paints and grafts of the best*sorts of fruit trees ; it would be a great thing to have a garden of this description, and he did not$,think there would be any very great difficulty in the estab- lishment of such a useful institution ; he was sure the Governor would feel an interest in the matter and...

EEFOEM OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times, f1 SIE,-Considering the imbecile and erroneous manner in which the Government of this colony has been administered during its existence, and that during that time the people have had no voice in making their laws, or in controlling the expenditure oftthe Eevenue, it is not to be won- dered at that the Petition lately presented to the Legislature, signed by 1153 householders, for the adoption of that reform which the British Parliament has provided for us, should be re- fused. Neither is it to be wondered at that the reasons assigned for such refusal should be a disgraceful libel on the settlers of the colony, because it is a repetition of the way in which our despotic rulers have almost always treated the voice of the people. Why did Mr. Hardey in the Assembly state, when the people's petition was under legisla- tive consideration, that country settlers knew little of the nature of the Petition whi...
