EXPLORATION IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 November 1864

EXPLORATION IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the Argus. SIR,-As the north coast of Australia is now attracting attention, some of your readers may feel interested in it. I send you an account of a residence on the north-western portion of it. I was there for five months-from June till Novem- ber last. Mr. Padbury, an enterprising settler here, has been the first to send down stock. I went with the second consign- ment, consisting of sheep and cattle, in- tending to have joined the previous party, and seen the country, with a view of set- tling there ; but on arrival could find no trace of them, so the stock were landed, and we did the best we could. For the greater part of the time I was at the Harding River a good many sheep and cattle died, on landing, from drink- ing salt-water; the supply of water on board ship being insufficient, and none to be had on shore within seven miles. The wild dogs, attracted by the car- cases, appeared in great numbers at first, obliging us to ...

Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. "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, NOVEMBER 4, 1864. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 4 November 1864

Perth Gazette & W.A. Times   " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."--Shakespeare. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1864. THE repeated murders committed by the natives at the out-stations in the.'Cham- pion Bay District shew the inadequacy of the protection afforded to the settlers in that quarter. And yet the Laws are so strictly administered in this colony upon the most approved English principles that if the settlers, to whom no sufficient protection is afforded, should take the law into their own hands and avenge attacks upon their property by punishing the aggressors summarily they would be held guilty of murder. The uselessness of the Pensioner Force as a means of protection is well-known. They are a gallant set of fellows and de- serve well of their countrymen, but as a constituted body they are of the smallest calculable value for defence against the enemies by whom we are menaced. A body of men admirable at...

%\z ê$m Mumu. MONSTEE MEETING OF GOVERN- MENT OFFICIALS. (From our Special Correspondent Rigdtjm Funnidos.) On Monday evening last, at a quarter before 4 p.m. precisely, a Monster Meeting of Govern- ment Officials, was held at the suggestion of Mb. Honeywobd, in the office of the Colonial Secretary, for the purpose of considering in detail the present condition and future pros- pects of Western Australia j and also to resolve upon a line of policy to be observed by all Officials during the coming crisis, and to form if possible a kind of " Forlorn Hope" for His Excellency during the continuance of the anti- cipated political earthquake. Mb. Honeywobd having taken the chair, was unable to proceed for a few minutes, owing to the noise and, enthusiasm of the younger Go- vernment Officers; but order having been at length restored, said that the object of the Meeting was one which he was sure would meet with their warmest approval.

THE SIGHT MANCÓME AT LAST! OB,. THE PBOGRFSS OF MEDICINE. It was with no ordinary pride and satisfaction that we lately had the honour of an introduc- tion to one of the most eminent men of the age, Professor Thomas Holloway, a gentleman who has done more for the advancement of medical science than any other that can be named, not including such renowned " satans'' as Abeecbombie, Besh, Clark, or Majendie. The Professor has recently travelled in the United States, having visited this country for the purpose of establishing a depot for the sale of his medicines in New York. It is true that our public have long been familiar with his great reputation, but partly owing to the heavy duty imposed upon imported medicines, and partly to the unwillingness of physicians and druggists to advance the interests of a professional brother, whose superior knowledge and skill threatened to cast their own pretensions into the shade, the shade (although great) in America of his wonderful remedies has...

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

GENERAL INTELLIGENCE. During the recent festivities at Newcastle it was discovered that some counterfeit West Australian Bank notes were in circulation, a few of them-some six or eight, we believe having been received by persons in payment. These notes are by no means well executed, but in the late busy time they were easily palmed off upon the unsuspecting, and the above num- ber were disposed of. We do not hear that the party or parties guilty of this fraud have as yet been detected. On the evening of Saturday last, the 5th No- vember, an accident of a very serious nature happened to one of two boys who were amusing thenselves with a gun. and making a noise in celebration of the day. While in the hands of one of the lads, the gun, in which the ramrod had been unfortunately left after loading with powder, was fired off, and the ramrod entered the side of his comrade passing through the stomach and liver, the wounded lad ran for some distance, with the ramrod which was seen protrudi...

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

FREMANTLE. (From our own Correspondent.) The Kestrel and Ziska sailed on Thursday af- ternoon, the 3rd Instant, the former vessel taking numerous passengers to Sydney. The departure of so many pensioners from our shore still seems to occupy the attention of the authorities, Colonel Bruce was again down here on the 3rd instant, addressing the men upon the subject. I have to report the arrival of the barque Chillingham, from Melbourne, which vessel put in here on Monday, bound for India in ballast. Messrs. Bickley & Co., who are Agents for the vessel, have I believe secured her a cargo of sandalwood for Singapore. The New Perseverance arrived on the previous day from Batavia, after a tedious passage of 58 days ; one of her crew died on the way down ; the horses taken from here by this vessel were all landed safe and in good condition, and I hear sold very-well ; she also took up a cargo of timber, principally for the Government, as an experiment, for the use of the dockyard an...

Arrival of the Mails. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

Arrival of the Mails. The mails arrived in Perth, yesterday at 10 a.m., our columns were already so crowded that we have but space to give the heads of the news, but there is little of any importance. Private letters state that by the following mail the final determination of the Home Govt, upon the Transportation question will be trans- mitted. It is believed that it will be to the effect that Transportation will cease at the end of five years, and that afterwards all the British criminals guilty of grave and repeated crime, will be sent to Russia. Mr. George Clifton has been appointed Go- vernor of Dartmoor Prison. The " Hastings " sailed for this colony on the 26th September, with 81 emigrants. The " Fitzroy" is the only vessel mentioned as load- ing. From Singapore the accounts respecting san- dalwood trade speak of it as being in the same depressed state as before. From South Australia we hear that a large extension of the telegraph lines is contemplated, as well as a re-constr...

TOODYAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

TOODYAY. We have received no account of the proceedings of the Toodyay Agricultural Society's Meeting last week, with the exception of the subjoined Keport, but we hear from visitors the stock exhibited was very inferior to that of former years, and that altogether the proceedings were marked with dulness. TENTH ANNUAL KEPOET OF THE TOODYAY, NOETHAM, AND VICTOBIA PLAINS, AGBI CULTUEAL SOCIETY. In concluding their last Annual Eeport your Committee stated that " better hopes now dawn " upon us than we have been able to entertain " for many years," and although the proceedings of the past year have scarcely borne out so fa- vourable a prospect, still there are many causes for thankfulness and still good reasons for the hope that better times are in store for us. The discovery of a large extent of pasture country is likely to prove of incalcuble benefit to the settlers, not only in relieving the present overstocked runs, but also in inducing persons from abroad to settle here ; hitherto...

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING FROM AUSTRALIAN COLONISATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

PHYSICAL CHANGES RESULTING ' FROM AUSTRALIAN COLO NISATION. By W. Lockhabt Morton. ^Tery remarkable changes nave taken place and are now in progress in the .physical character and condition of Aus- tralia,! as the inevitable results of the settlement of white men with their flocks and-herds on its territory. Before enu- merating the changes referred to it may be proper to give a few notes respecting the physical state of Australia prior to the time when colonisation began. There is every reason to believe that for many long ages antecedent to its dis- covery and settlement, the physical cha- racter of this vast territory had continued | unchanged. A general equilibrium had been established between transmuting I forces and resisting matter. The moun- j tains had been worn down nearly to their present level ; deep ravines had been cut ; wide valleys had been filled; and the beds of ancient streams had been silted up, leaving in some instances their course to be traced through wide tra...

PERTH GAZETTE & W.A. TIMES   " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Shakespeare. FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11,1864. One of the chief topics, if not the prin- cipal, discussed at the late Meetings of the York and Toodyay Agricultural So cieties, was " Protection ;" and all must admit the feeling has undoubtedly be- come universal among the country set-   tlers, and yery reasonably too, that pro- perty, if not life, is at present, in a very insecure condition, from the insufficiency of the means provided by the Govern- ment for its safety. From this sense of danger, and the manifest reluctance of the authorities to admit of its existence or its reasonableness, and take the steps necessary to remove it, we cannot be sur- prised that the dweller in the lonely farm- house begins to consider, whether it would not be more desirable at once to put an end to the system, from which this uneasiness originates...

VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 11 November 1864

VICTORIA. By the Chillingham we have Melbourne   papers to the 22nd ult. Trade was in a very languishing state, and some large failures had occurred : Mr. J. H. Dodgson, general merchant, with liabilities esti- mated at from £70,000 to £100,000, and   Cohen Brothers to a similar amount ; in Melbourne and Geelong, during the month of September, no less than 83 in- solvencies appeared in the Gazette. The steamer South Australian was an- nounced to sail, at an early date, for Adam Bay, (the new settlement on the north coast under the auspices of the South Australian Government) to call at Camden Harbour on her way ; and the Camden Harbour Association announce a ship, name not mentioned, to sail for that place on or about the 7th Nov. A fall in the price of flour had taken place, in consequence of large foreign arrivals, both at Melbourne and Sydney ; the price at Adelaide on the 3rd October was £25, and wheat 10s. 2d.; on the 22nd, flour was £22 to £23, and wh...

The Commissioner, Mr. Finnis, had been much embarrassed by insubordination among his party, as well as by the hostility of the natives. The country in the neighborhood is described as admirably adapted either for agricultural or pastoral occupations. The latest quotation for flour is £24 to £25 per ton.
