ROAD-MAKING. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
ROAD-MAKING. IN another column appears a letter from W. L. BROCKMAN, Esq., which we hope will be found interesting by those in whose power it lies to mend or mar our roads. Very little of the former has yet been done to any purpose. Every- thing is done upon the roads that you might expect if you send your coat to be repaired by a shoemaker, or your boots by a tailor. Convict-warders and po- licemen are excellent men and loyal sub- jects, but they are no more qualified by education and experience to be road makers than to be hatters. Take, for example, the Road from York to Guild- ford. Ruts like precipices yawn on each side of the anxious traveller's steed. Lately, several parties of convicts have been sent to fill up these ruts, which they do by scratching together the softest material they can find ; whilst the warder takes his morning promenade, wearily awaiting the hour of hard-earned refresh- ment. The parties usually select those portions of the road that require the least me...
Guildford. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
Guildford. We regret to hear that the Mechanics' Insti- tute in this thriving and interesting townsite is in a somewhat languishing state, solely from the irregularity with which the subscriptions and donations are paid up. Let us hope that this hint will inspire those members who are in arrear with a desire to relieve their own feel- ings and the Secretary's anxiety, without any further delay. He is said to be always in at- tendance on Friday evenings.

Curing a Wife. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
Curing a Wife. MB. DIMLIGHT, for the past ten years, has prayed every day that his wife would tumble down stairs and break her neck, or else die like a Christian, in her bed. The simple reason for this is, that Mrs. Dimlight was fond of complaining, taking medicines, and having protracted interviews with the doctor, all of which required money, and money Mr. Dim- light hated to part with. In fact he had much rather part with Mrs. Dimlight ; but that lady manifested no intention of leaving this pleasant world, and taking up her abode in an uncertain sphere. Neither did she say that she would live ; leaving her lord in an uncertain state, and her physician in a perplexed condition. The doctor said she wanted rousing, and Mr. Dimlight thought he could do something to start her, and get her out of bed. He hit upon a plan which he thought would operate in a very satisfactory manner. Mrs. Roundwink acted in the capacity of a nurse to Mrs. Dimlight. Mrs. Roundwink is a widow, voluptuous, p...
THE FAMILY PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
THE FAMILY PICTURE. IN the Rue St. Denis of Paris, there was, a few years ago, though not now to be seen, a habitation, which recalled to re- membrance the edifices of a by-gone age, such as those of which the whole city was composed in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Cumbrous and almost ruin- ous in appearance, it still interested the imagination from the associations to which it gave rise, for antiquity is ever venerable in the eyes of mortals. The building had, for a longer time than the traditions of the neighbourhood ran back, been the seat of buisness for a cloth-merchant, and in regular succession it had been handed down, until it was now in possession of Monsieur Guillaume, who pursued with success the traffic of his predecessors. M. Guillaume had become possessed of this ancient fabric, and the trade to which it had so long been devoted, by a prolonged and diligent service with the former owner, who had rewarded his zeal and industry with the hand of an only daughter...
West Australian Times. DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI. Hear and be JUST. THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
West Australian Times DISCITE JUSTITIAM, MONITI Hear and be JUST. &nbsp; THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1863. THE Annual Meeting of the " York Ag- ricultural Society" is always an event of peculiar interest throughout the colony. Established nearly a quarter of a century ago, it is the parent of all our Agricul- tural Societies, and whenever its reports convey an expression of opinion upon measures of public policy, the sentiments so expressed are well deserving of heed- ful consideration. For they are the views of sensible and practical men, who know what is really wanting to promote the welfare of the settlers, and who are not afraid to express their sentiments with honest straightforwardness. When we find practical farmers and settlers of all classes, like the members of the York Agricultural Society, and the colonists who attended the Public Meeting held at Geraldton on the 15th ultimo, unanimous in their condemnation of the Land Regu- lations of 1860, and of the insufficient ame...
New Zealand. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
New Zealand. By the Toronto, just arrived, news from New Zealand has been received up to 28th September, from which we learn that affairs were still in a very unsatis- factory state. The Maories continue to act with great audacity. They had made a raid into Camderon Town, and carried away forty tons of Commissariat Stores. The Police Magistrate, Mr. Armytage, and two other Europeans were killed. On their retreat they were followed by a party of the 65th Regiment, but the Maories not only made good their retreat, but killed Capt. Swift, who commanded the detachment, and two privates, and wounded Lieutenant Butler and two men, repulsing the others, who, how- ever, succeeded in carrying off their killed and wounded. The weather had put a stop to active military movements. &nbsp; SUNDERLAND TO BRIXHAM IN AN OPEN BOAT. -On Wednesday evening a strange boat, &nbsp; manned by one individual, Clement Pine, known by some in Brigham as a fisherman, was seen coming in across Tor...
The Open Column. TO THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
The Open Column To THE EDITOR OF THE W. A. TIMES. SIR,-As the continuance of trans- portation to this colony beyond a very few more years seems very problematical, I think, we should endeavour, by all the means in our power, to make the labour of the prisoners more profitable to us than it has hitherto been. It is really lamentable to travel along some of our roads and see how their labour has been, &nbsp; and is being wasted, for the want of &nbsp; proper supervision. To two engineers - one living at Fremantle and one at Perth - are entrusted the whole of the roads and bridges in the colony, extend- ing over many hundred miles. Now, however competent these gentlemen may be, it is utterly impossible that, together with their other duties nearer home, they can give the requisite supervision. They have no subordinates under them, unless it be the warders in charge of the parties, and on the King George's Sound Road the police. Now the warders are, generally speaking, u...
Our Chimney [?]ook. Tales for Country Readers. THERESE. [Concluded.] [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
Our Chimney Book Tales for Country Headers. THERESE. (By the late JAMES SHERIDAN KNOWLES.) [Concluded.] " SHE is innocent !" exclaimed the count to himself, and with that kind of deep-drawn sigh which, one might imagine, announces the transition from suspended vitality to resuscitation. Thérèse heard it ; involuntarily she looked at the count; she read in his countenance, which beamed meltingly upon her, the thoughts that were pass- ing in his soul - he believed that she was innocent! Her cheek coloured till the richest vermilion would not have been deep enough to paint its die;-there were two or three slight convulsive movements of her fair throat - and the maid burst into a shower of tears ! " You may go, sir !" said the countess, addressing the officer ; " I am sorry for the unhappy girl, and do not wish the law to take its course." " Stop !" ex- claimed Thérèse ; " I go along with you ! -I am your prisoner !" " I am forbidden to take you into cus- tody," said the officer : turni...
Our Back Parlour. No. VI. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
Our Back Parlour &nbsp; No. VI. OUR Deputy-Sub-Editor gave an extra grand Reception a few nights ago, at which Miss CRUMP, .MR. WOBBLES, and the now celebrated Poet, Sprouts, at- tended in their best apparel. Miss Crump, who was scarcely recovered from the severe fright she experienced at Mr. Wobbles' pic-nic (of which a full account will be given next week), looked more interesting than usual. Our Deputy-Sub-Editor received his distinguished visitors with unaffected cor- diality, and accommodated them with seats upon exhausted cases of long pri- mer and brevier-the Agent for the Colonies not having yet fulfilled the un- limited order for upholstery given him some time ago : waiting, probably, for a cheque upon a well-known firm in Ald- gate, which was duly promised him by the Treasurer to the W. A. Times esta- blishment. Miss CRUMP-I am rejoiced, Mr Myth, to see you alive, Sir, after our fearful adventures. I have been very poorly, indeed. The doctors here don't seem to und...
YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 5 November 1863
YORK AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. The General Annual Meeting of the Society was held at Mr. Craig's Hotel, York, on Wednesday, the 28th ultimo, JOHN SEWELL, JUN., Esq., in the chair. The usual preliminary business having been gone through, Messrs. Charles Wit- tenoom, Edmund J. Brockman, and Charles and William Smith were pro- posed and elected members of the Society. The 23rd Annual Report was read by the Chairman, It alluded to the marked improvement in colonial affairs during the last year ; to the healthy state of the crops, and the excellent lambing season. The failure of the three exploring expe- ditions in discovering any valuable addi- tion to the colony in the shape of a good grazing country was touched upon. Some interesting statistical information as to our exports and imports for the year ending 30th September last, kindly fur- nished by Mr. Robert King, of Freman- tle, was read by the Chairman, but does not appear in the Report. From this it appears that the colony, during tha...

York. &nbsp; THE Annual Cattle and Sheep Show and Fair were held on Wednesday, 28th ult: The show of Sheep was considered ex- ceedingly good.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The West Australian Times — 12 November 1863
TO CORRESPONDENTS. A YORKSHIRE SETTLER applies a deserved epithet to the coarse writer of the effusions signed "Tabitha Longclackit." It is not necessary to notice insults which the writer has not courage enough to make openly, and which are not redeemed by the smallest amount of wit or humour. A somewhat mysterious letter from a " Sub- scriber" in the Champion Bay District, would lead us to suppose that an important functionary there allows himself to be too much influenced by a subordinate officer. Were we to take up one-sided views of the conduct of men holding important offices, we might be led to do much injustice. We would beg our correspondent not to form too hasty conclusions.
