JjÉrtfc «gazette « Ä. i. Simes. " Be just and fear not ; Let all the ends thou aim'st at be thy country's, Thy God's, and truth's."-Sliaksjaeare. FRIJD^YrDTÊC^MBÊRXl865! To a colony with any pretensions to pro- gress, however slight those pretensions may be, the efficiency of its Survey Department must always be a matter of the very greatest importance, as upon it must in no slight degree depend the rate at which it will be not occupied only but settled, which latter term we take to mean the tillage and improvement of the coun- try, the erection of houses and workshops, which but few men will have the hardi- hood to attempt unless they are certain of the tenure of the lands upon which they intends to expend their capital in improve- ments. This fact has been fully recog- nized and acted upon in all others Austra- lian Colonies" than this-in each great care has at all times been taken that the Survey of the country shall always be in advance of the requirements for occupa- tion, and ...

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 December 1865

AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION. (Australasian.) The waste of labor and capital involved in the present inefficient modes of con- ducting farming is enormous, even for a new country, and for the most part upon rich and inexhausted soils. But few of the old country farmers could believe how soon a new and fertile soil can be brought to the verge of barrenness and sterility. The tract of country in the neighborhood of Warrnambool was noted a few years ago as presenting one of the richest scenes of agricultural prosperity upon which the eye could rest ; how changed that scene is now need not here be told. The formation of establishments upon the same principles as those upon which agricultural education is taught in Europe, would be of incalculable benefit to the youth of these colonies whose future walk in life is destined to be the cultivation of the soil. Misapplied capi- tal and abilities would then become the exception instead of the rule ; and until farming can be learned upon some de- fi...

VICTORIA PLAINS. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 December 1865

VICTORIA PLAINS. [From our own Correspondent.] The drought and warm weather have ripened what little corn there is, before the usual time, consequently farmers have their hands pretty full of business now« harvesting, welL-sinking, wool-carting, &c. I stated in a previous com- munication that it was generally thought that the wheat crops would be very indifferent, and I am now sorry to have to report that such is the case, there not being half the quantity of grain here this year as in previous ones ; barley and hay crops are I believe better as I hear fewer complaints concerning them. Those farmers whose motto, to judge from their management, is " let tomorrow take care of itself" and who, when blessed by Providence with good seasons have taken " the cood the Gods provided" without making any attempt to make the " good" better, so that in case of a dry season they would not be very much incon- venienced, will be put to a great expense this year, I think in well sinking, &am...

THE GEOLOGICAL AGE OF AUSTRALIA. F.G.S., F.L.S., &c. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 December 1865

THE GEOLOGICAL AGE OP AUSTRALIA. By the Eev. J. E. Tenison Woods, F.G.S., F.L.S., &c. (Concluded from our last.) I wonder whether there were as many theo- ries among the Spaniards about America as we have had about Australia. The continent has beeh a fine broad target for paradox to aim at. Dampier thought it was " a dreerie land," which none but the most miserable people live in. Let us hope that his judgment, as not complimentary to ourselves, was somewhat too severe. Cook thought it was a paradise, which was equally wide of the mark. Flinders thought that the interior was a Mediterranean Sea, with a coral reef for its southern border. Until the time of Sturt, the whole of the in- terior was believed to be one vast inland sea. Then came the desert theory, which has had a large number of admirers, from Sturt to Burke and Wills. It was not incompatible with the view that Australia was íecently raised from the sea, and was generally held as a fact, with a theory to match. Las...

THE OVERLAND MALL SERVICE. (Australasian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 8 December 1865

THE OVERLAND MALL SERVICE. (Australasian.) The old saying that good comes out of evil is never likely to receive an ainphler illustration than in tbe case of our steam communication, as conducted by tbe Peninsular and Oriental Company. We are not afraid of wearying our readers by coming back upon the same topic week after week, because every man, woman, and child in Australia is, directly or in- directly, a sufferer by it. All suffer. Our merchants suffer in toto, as, even in the most favourably-suited colonies, busi- ness is for the time being a lottery, from the non-arrival of the advices. Our wealthier passengers suffer not pecuni- arily so much, though the payment is double what it shonld be, but from the penance of being penned up in dark dens with the windows closed in a sweltering heat, inasmuch as the company employing, vessels of one-half the requisite tonnage, load their coals on deck, and stow their Christians below. Sydney Smith, to use a, most hackneyed saying, said tha...

fiflrmpafceitije. To the Editor of the Perth Gazette 8¡ W. A. Times. SIB,-You will oblige me by giving publicity to the following : On Sunday, 6th of August last, a runaway convict named Jackson robbed my hut near Narrogin of property and pro- visions to the amount of £6 and upwards ; on the 20th of the same month information was given to Police Constable Wheateley of the robbery, and list of goods furnished him of what was stolen ; a few days after the convict was apprehended at Addleton's station with the property on him. I have applied to the Cor- poral of the York Station and furnished a list of the goods stolen, of which he can give me no further information than that he had written to the Bunbury Station where the convict absconded from; Now, Mr. Editor, there must be a great neglect of duty some- where, as the man has not been forwarded to the district where the robbery was committed, nor either has the property for the purpose of being identified. If convicts are allowed to ...

The Mails from the Colonies. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 December 1865

The Mails from the Colonies. These mails were received in Perth on Wednesday afternoon at 4 p.m. The following are the principal items of news : SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Continued dissatisfaction is felt at the irregularity with which the service is per- formed, the rule now being for the mail steamers to be several days beyond the appointed time. The weather during the month has been very dry and unusually hot. On the 21st instant the thermometer stood at 113*5 in the shade. Since then a change has occurred, and comparatively cool weather has been enjoyed. The harvest has commenced, and in a few days it will be general. It is hoped that the crops, though below the average, will be better than was anticipated a few weeks ago. A very large quantity of wheat has been cut down for hay, which still rules high. Another change has taken place in the political horizon. A majority of the Go- vernment determined to send Mr. Goy- der to the North to fix the boundary line between the drought and the r...

THE GEOLOGY OF CAMDEN HAKBOB. The following interesting communica- tions from the Kev. W. B. Clarke, the well-known New South Wales' geologist, have been received by the Colonial Secre- tary, and obligingly placed at our dis- posal : St. Leonard's, 20th Nov., 1865. Mt Deas Sib,-I enclose a short report on the contents of the Box,' which did not reach me intime for the last Mail. The specimens are interesting, but indicate nothing certain as to their age. r¿ I have, however, set down my opinion, though it may not be worth much. I should suppose, that such a country as pro- duces these rocks must be a formidable one for horses or footmen to cross. There must be other formations in the interior. The journals you were good enough to send me I thank you for. Your explorers appear to be very vigorous people. I notice to-day, that Professor Owen thinks the red hands to be the foot-prints of an animal of the toad kind ! He argues from certain indefíniteness in the im- pressions, and the ord...

CHAMPION BAY. [From our own Correspondent.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and West Australian Times — 15 December 1865

CHAMPION BAY. [From our own Correspondent.! There is little or nothing to remark from this district. Harvest has become general and, like many other things, will not be so bad as repre- sented although bad enough, and in some few instances seed will not be returned to the sower ; a small quantity has come into the Bay for shipment, but not much. There has been a great changing of hands in sheep, several flocks being purchased for the Northern Territory by Mr. Padbury and others. Fresh runs of ten and twenty thousand acres continue to be taken up close to our doors, and it is said by a large flock-owner that plenty of land is yet unoccupied that would carry as many sheep as we have now in the district ; if so we ' may expect some of our neighbors from the other side to find their way here, which will be very beneficial in many ways. Reports from the Gwalla Mine mention the discovery of another rich lode of ore, which they are now turning out in large quantities; if this should prove ...
