SALT AS AN AGENT IN AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 29 September 1865

SALT AS AN AGENT IN AGRICULTURE. MUCH discussion has of late taken place in England as to the value of salt used as a manure on farm lands ; and, though the utmost diversity of opinion for and against its use prevails even amongst the scientific agriculturalists, and weighty testimony upon the whole, leans in favor of salt when used on certain descriptions of land, especially light sandy soils, and in seasons when there is little moisture on the ground or the atmosphere, and much dry heat prevails. These two conditions of soil and atmosphere are, as a rule, more certainly and generally to be met with in this part of Australia than in the United Kingdom ; and, therefore if applied here either to plants of marine origin, like inangold-wurz rel, orto wheat,in quantities not exceeding 3 cwt. to the acre, salt is pretty certain to prove beneficial. In the London Farmers' Magazine for March last, there is a full report of a very interesting discussion on the subject at a recent meeting of...

AUSTRALIAN BLACKS. [From The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 29 September 1865

AUSTRALIAN BLACKS. [From The Australasian.] It is not only in America that there is a " Black" Question. That which hangs like a millstone about the neck of America, and has drowned her fields with blood, exists for us, too infinitessimally   in degree. In America, the negro is not only a nuisance, but an institution ; in Australia, the native occupier of the soil is simply a nuisance, which we get rid of as soon as possible. The ways of doing it are various. Sometimes the native is shot, sometimes he is stabbed, oscasion- ally he is poisoned, but generally he is allowed to die of neglect. The roads differ, and he is improved variously, sometimes by the dispensation of Provi- dence, oftener by the devilry of man ; but the end is the same. Disease, of course, does the chief work, and murder the rest. First comes consumption of the lungs. These wretched fellow-creatures of ours, who hang upon the fringe of advancing civilisation, vibrate between the luxury of cast-off clo...

THE ADAM BAY SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE AUSTRALASIAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 October 1865

THE ADAM BAY SETTLEMENT. TO THE EDITOE Odt THE AUSTRAT.ASIAN. Sir,-At the time when the South Aus- tralians determined upon forming a settle- ment at Adam Bay, I thought they were about to commit an extraordinary mis- take. I have never been able to under- stand upon what grounds the site of Ada.m Bay was chosen, seeing that it has long been so well known that. the best position for a new settlement on the north-west coast of Australia is on the Victoria River. There, at any rate, is a region which was thoroughly explored'by the present Surveyor-General of" Queens- land, Mr. A. C. Gregory, and described by him as superior to the country near the shores of Carpentaria for the purposes of settlement. Captain Stokes had pre- viously directed attention to the Victoria as the most promising locality met with on the north-west coast, and it was, no doubt, his favorable description of it which induced the Royal Geographical Society of London to fit out Gregory's Expedition. It is true that...

THE METROPOLITAN RIFLE MATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 October 1865

THE METROPOLITAN RIFLE MATCHES. THE Metropolitan Volunteers experienced their usual ill-fortune in the day selected for their shooting for the prizes so liberally contri- buted by their fellow townsmen. Yesterday was throughout cold and inclement ; during the fore part of the day a strong wind blew directly across the range, and upon its mode- rating a little in the afternoon, heavy showers of rain fell, which almost shut out the target from view, especially at the long ranges, under such circumstances it is only to be wondered at that such very respectable scores were made, especially considering that for several months past the men have had little or no practice owing to a want of amunition. The Third Class or short distances were first con- tested; for which 25 members entered. The winners were Private G. Roe . 47 " W, Cousins . 41 " G. Shenton Jun. . 37 " DeC.

FENIANISM IN AMERICA. [From The Adelaide Observer.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 October 1865

FENIANISM IN AMERICA. 6 [From The Adelaide Observer.'] Some time ago the question was raised in the House of Commons-Who are Fenians ? and in reply Sir Robert Peel divulged, in one of his most humorous speeches, all the official information he possessed regarding the great unknown. The Feniaus, both in Ireland and America, resented the irreverent familiarities of the Chief Secretary. To punish them they have, through the sympathetic colums of the New York Herald, made a very elaborate confession of their situation, and objects. The style and spirit of this document may be fairly inferred from its "headers," the most prominent of which are " Ireland for the Irish," " Loyal to the land of their adoption," " Loyal to the land of their lineage," " We tell these foreign Saxon swine this Irish land is ours," &c, &c, &c. So much for the sentiment ; and now for the facts. The founder of the Brotherhood is said to hare been a Colonel O'Mahony, who, having burnt his fi...

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 October 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIE,-The Settlers of Western Australia will allow one who has spent twenty-five years of labor and toil amongst them, and of silence as regards public affairs, for the first time' to appear in print to raise his voice against the conduct of the Government respecting the way in which the " People's Petition" for repre- sentation hy election in the Legislature was treated. It was no use for the Government to attempt to get rid of the movement by a shuf- fling side wind, for a representative Council we must and will have, and no half and half measure such as that by which they are trying to throw dust into our eyes. They cannot stop public opinion or stifle the voice of the people now the movement has once commenced. and I hope my fellow colonists will 'keep their " shoulder to the wheel, for what has been found to be good for the other colonies must be good for us. It has been quite amusing to watch the Governor's sajings and doings in...

êoxxttytmhtntt. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. DEAE SIE, -During my short visit to your colony I have been much surprised at the very slow progress made here when compared with the other colonies of Austialia. When questioned your colonists naturally say -" we have no gold fields ;" very true, but ad- mitting you have not, still you have a fine Grazing Country vacant, a source of wealth which under the Victorian Government would soon be turned to good account. If your colony could afiord to govern itself, " of whick your colonists should be able to judge" then Western Australia would have a chance to compete with the sister colonies : but until you can attain that position you are cer- tain to remain in the shade. Now I imagine that a great benefit must accrue to Western Australia from the Settle- ments on thfa north-west coast, from which in a few years, your Government will receive a considerable revenue, and might obtain a very large one, by a liberal measures....

PASTORAL LABOURERS. [From The Australasian.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 6 October 1865

PASTORAL LABOURERS. [From The Australasian."] t We are too much in the habit of ne- glecting the wants and improvement of our bush population. Out of sight they are out of mind, too ; and while every caprice of towns-people is a matter of study and debate, we can scarcely be said to be even acquainted with the evils which affect so seriously the well-being and social condition of those who may be called the squatting working class. Every one who has travelled much in the bush must have observed the miserably unsocial relations which exist, in too many cases, between the squatter and his men, the thoroughly demoralised condi- tion of the class known as "station " hands." Living in blank solitude, or herded together in huts, without wives or families, spending their existence in dreary idleness, or engaged in hardening pursuits, and far from the influences of civilisation, religious services, or instruc- tion, these men, in any case, are too much in 'danger of degenerating into semi-b...

PROBABLY at the present time there is nothing more important to the speedy settlement of the new northern, and of greater consequence to the older settled districts, than the discovery of a prac table line of overland communication be- tween them for the the transport of stock. Some time since the Government fully re- cognised the benefit such a line would be to the interests of the colony, and offered a bonus for the actual transport of stock by such a route, in the shape of free oc cupation of 100,000 acres of the new country for a term of years, but limiting the time during which the offer might be availed of. At that period, whether our stockowners were too little acquainted with the value of the promised land, to consider it worth their while to risk the loss of their stock in an attempt to reach it, or from want of e...

There has been no rain for 15 months. A Bushranger's plant, containing £700, has been found near Forbes. A bed of kerosene shale has been found near Woolondelli, equal to that at Partley. The Archdeacon has been appointed Roman Catholic Bishop of Adelaide, Dean Hayes Bishop of Armidale, the Rev. Mathtew Quinn Bishop of Bathurst, and Dean Hanley Bishop of Goulburn.

VICTORIA. ts The deadlock still continues, and at present there is no prospect of a better understanding between the two Houses. The Governor's attempts at mediation have failed. Great political excitement and irritation have been shown. The Assembly insists upon their right to send the Tariff and the Appropriation Bills up together, and the Council refuse to pass them in that form. Party feeling runs very high. The Government have resumed payment of salaries, being accommodated by the London Chartered Bank, the Manager of which has advanced four sums of £40,000 each. An agree ment has been made that the Bank should sue the Government for the sums advanced, which has been done, the Government admitting judgement. The Supreme Court has decided that the collection of import duties cannot be enforced on mere resolutions of the Assembly. The Chief Secretary and the Attorney General have rebuked the Press in the Assembly for the course it has taken in the present crisis. The Chief Secret...
