To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 October 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Omette t¡ W. A. Time». SIR,-No report having as yet been made public of the seal displayed by the Perth City Council on the 23rd day of August last, at the Freemasons' Hotel, when five allotments were ?old by Public Auction in the presence and un- der the advice of the Advocate General, for ar- rears ofrateB, as it was stated, and it being the duty of every citizen to come forward and see that not only his interest, but the interests of the city generally are properly looked after by those in office, I ask therefore the publication in your valuable journal of the following:-It - will be in. the recollection of many that at the f ' general meeting of ratepayers held on the 5th June, the Chairman having been-called upon to explain why the Perth City Council neglected certain duties required of them by the "Perth City Improvement Ordinance," gave notice that he intended to carry into effect the 14th clause, and he would publish a list of the defaulters ; this...

There being only eight persons present, will yon, as a member of the M.R.V., or any of your numerous readers, inform me, through the medium of your journal, why each prize was awarded, eight persons only firing.

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 October 1865

CHAMPION BAY. (From our own Correspondent.) As I told you in my last, the Return Match of the Boottmll and Victo, ia Cricket Clubs was was played on the Geraldton Cricket ground, and terminated in favor of the Victorians. The day passed off very pleasantly, and wound up with a most excellent Dinner provided by Mr. Ridley. Later in the evening a goodly number of visitors being weary oí doing nothing but looking on, distinguished themselves in various ways, and actually took advantage of the Government Quaiters prepared for any one not able to find his own. In the morning they paid a formal visit to the Acting Resident, paid for their accommodation, and skedaddled. The Meeting in the Court-house on Govern- ment Reform took place as announced, and passed several resolutions condemnatory of the proceedings" of the present Council, and have .decided-and what is more-will carry out their decision to petition the Home Govern- ment, and prevent our present rulers making might to be right.

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette & W. A. Times. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 October 1865

To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times. SIB,-The Editor of the Inquirer or his deputy has been very busy at work of late fishing up * bits of local,' and they are not altogether the thing, as some are untrue. The little bit of local that caught my eye yesterday, was about the winners of the prizes lately competed for, shooting for a picture of themselves, given by Mr. G-. Phillips, and which the" Inquirer states " was won by Mr. Somers Birch." The Inquirer should be careful what it puts forth; Mr. Somers Birch did make the highest score on that day, but the ten winners have not yet fired, therefore it -cannot be won. Surely the Officers would not allow it. Privates C. H. Watson and G-., Boe have yet to fire if they please ; in Watson's case, he could not possibly at- tend. Trusting that fair play will be ma- nifested in the matter, I eonclude. A VOICE AT THE BUTTS. Thursday, Oct. 26,1865.

ffiflrmpnfrjeitije. REFORM IN THE LEGISLATURE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette $ W. A. Times. SIR,-Like a drowning man grasping at a straw, the Editor of the Inquirer newspaper in his general Articles and especially in his lead- ing one, of the 4th inst., grasps at every shadow that would appear to hold out the chance of an argument to shew that the narrow-minded despotism and tyrannical misrule adopted by the Government of Western Australia for the last 35 years, is better than the liberty and freedom which the people oí the United King- dom of Great Britain and Ireland enjoy, and which the people of Western Australia .are determined to get. In that article, he attacks Mr. Kenneth Brown's letter which appeared in your columns with a venom like poison, and endeavours to show that the truisms contained in it are false- hoods ; for while Mr. Brown insists that a glance at the shipping reports oí the Colony will show the immense number of settlers with and witho...

NEWCASTLE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 October 1865

NEWCASTLE EACES. The first attempt at a race meeting in this district took place on Friday, Oct., 20th ; all things taken into consideration it was very successful. The difficult nature of the course prevented many from running horses who otherwise would have done so. Before the next meeting the course will be cleared and otherwise improved, a larger meeting may there- fore be looked forward to; although there were not many horses to run, there were a great many people to see the few that did. The course was crowded with the beauty and fashion of the district. Some were rich and rode in chaises, Others poor who walked like blazes. # There is no reason why the Toodyay race meetings should not be equal, if not superior to, any in the Colony ; we have plenty of good horses and «porting men, as anyone can testify who was present on Friday. A start was all that we required, that start we no«/ have had and shall go-a-head. MAIDEN PLATE. 1ST HBAT. L Chitty's Lady Grey . 2 Lockyer's Chinee ...

It re- lieves pain of any kind, soothes the restlessness of fever, and imparts the most refreshing sleep without producing or leaving any of the unplea- sant effects- of opium.

Mr. Stow on the Resources and Prospects of Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 27 October 1865

Mr. Stow on the Resources and Prospects of Western Australia. I will now give my impressions as to the re scources and prospects in Western Australia impressions formed after a very superficial and partial view of the country, but not without serious consideration. 1 travelled some miles over what I have heard described as the crack district of the colony-the Champion Bay neighborhood. I have seen something of the vicinity of Perth, and in oing to the Sound have passed over what Swan Uiver colonists consider their worst ground. I believe that the character of the country has been much misunderstood ; that good land is not so scarce as people have imagined, and that the long continued poverty of Western Australia arises mainly from artificial causes. I have al- ready described the land 1 have seen, and even where it has been commonly supposed to have been worthless, there is a quautity of use- ful soil. 1 am sure that some 1 saw on the Sound-road would, if within 70 or 80 miles of Ad...

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our Monthly Contributor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 3 November 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. (From our Monthly Contributor.) Owing to the great dearth of news that then existed I was unable to make up a report for last month ; I have exhausted all the usual subjects upon which your country contributor generally writes, such as bad roads, appearance of crops, mis- deeds of native, &c, &c.,- and owing to there being no public transactions either of business or pleasure ever taking place on the Plains, I find myself hard-pushed to spin My reports out to a reasonable length. We are now busy shearing, «fee. ; as far as can be judged from appearance there is every probability of there being a first rate clip ; as there was such a small quan- tity of rain fell during the winter all the flock-owners have been put to some little inconvenience and expense to find water wherewith to wash their sheep ; but they are far better off in this respect than was generally expected, as at one time it was feared that more than one-half of the sheep would have to ...

Cüvrapitímu*. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette Sç W. A. Times.' SIB,-I am sorry that my short epistle last week raised the anger of your contemporary's correspondent "A Member of the Volunteer Rifles." There is but one thing that shelters the writer in question-that of taking the part of a relative, and to curry favor with 'others only a few others-for no Journal can be styled " the People's Journal," or be popular, that is guilty of " toadyism." But however, the ques- tion at issue. Has the Photograph been fairly won ? The Inquirer's correspondent (for every body knows who he is,) says it has, and "A Voice at the Butts" says it has not. Now how is it to be decided ? Surely it will not be left to the " Organ's" correspondent, for it cannot be expected but that one relative will take the part of another, although not in all cases do they. He accuses me of making statements " simply for ' effect.' " I deny it, and here state that the photograph has not been fairly won. It was never ...
