To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
To the Editor of the Perth Gazette, Sir, Finding it widely circulated, and, from my silence, very generally believed, that I had charge of the Native prisoners while I resided with them at Carnac, I feel it due to my own honor to state, publicly, that the report is utterly incorrect. While at Carnac, I held neither appointment nor salary from the local Government, I merely ob- &nbsp; tained permission from His Honor the Lieutenant Governor, to go there for the purpose of acquiring the native language and of communicating to the Natives some knowledge of christianity ; and this I did entirely at my own expense, I had therefore nothing to do with the custody of the prisoners ; and consequently could not be charged with allow- ing them to make their escape. LYON. March 4th, 1833,
To the Editor of the Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
To the Editor of the Gazette. Sir, The following is a copy of the original draft of a letter which may be interesting to the public. I need not point out the importance to the Settlement of a river in the situation and of the magnitude described. Let an attempt be made — and, let us see whether it exist or not. Some have laughed at the idea of the natives, being taught to work. The whole of the timber, if I am correctly informed, for the building of the Bush Inn, was carried to the site by them. They carried in one day, 8,000 feet. I refer the skeptics to Mr.Butler of fresh water bay, for further in- &nbsp; formation. But those who would have them to work, must treat them like men, not like brutes. The local Government ought to place thom on a farm by themselves ; and there get them instruct- ed in the arts of civilized life, and, in what is of infinitely more importance to these poor savages, the principles of Christianity. LYON. Spring Mount, March 4th, 1833.
FIRE AT POINT WALTER, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
FIRE AT POINT WALTER, We have received information that either on Sunday night last or early on Monday morning, the House at point walter the property of Mr. Waylen, winch was recently occupied by Mr. Smythers, was burnt to the ground it is supposed by the Natives. The natives were put across the river on Sunday morning by Mr. Butler, and re- mained in the neighbourhood during the day, which leaves a natural inference, that they were the incendiaries, indeed we have heard that Jones Mr. Butlers servant, was passing on the Monday morning and saw the house in flames, with the natives dancing around it. Willis and Foulks went there for the purpose of fishing, but were driven away, and an attempt was made to seize the boat, which they repulsed. On Monday morn- ing after the mischief was done, a party of the natives came down to Preston Point, and were ferried across by Mr. Weavell's men. The risk even from casual fires, of leaving premises situat- ed as these were, at a distance of thre...
To His Honor the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Woodbridge Nov. 26th, 1832 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 March 1833
To His Honor the Lieutenant Governor in Council. Woodbridge Nov. 26th, 1832 Sir, Yon will probably desire to know how far the plan lately adopted with regard to the Native prisoners, promises to lead to any amelioration of the condition of the native tribes, I am happy to be able to state for your informa- tion, that so far as the opportunity was afforded of carrying the plan into effect, it was attended with complete success. Up to the very evening on which they made their escape, the experiment was more and &nbsp; more satisfactory. The savageness of their dispo- sition was mollified; they ware becoming cleanly in their persons, cheerful in their manners, and orderly in their habits ; their health improved ; they were rapidly acquiring a knowledge of English ; their conduct at divine service was respectful ; and, of the practicability of teaching them to work and maintain themselves by their own industry, no doubt could remain on the mind of the most skep- tical. A few wee...

THE PRINTING-PRESS IN TURKEY, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
THE PRINTING-PRESS IN TURKEY, Mr. Mountstuart Elphinstone, in his very in- teresting account of the Kingdom of Caubul (a country near the higher waters of the Indus, be- tween India and Persia), and of the scattered Afghan tribes dependant thereon, gives the follow- ing anecdote of the Nailpeekhail, who, like the rest, profess the Mahometan religion, but are so barbarous that even reading is looked down on as an unmanly accomplishment among them. " Some men of Nailpeekhail found a Mollah, or doctor of tiie Mahometan faith, copying the Kiloran, or their Bible, and not well understand- ing the case, they struck his head off, saying, 4 You tell us these books come from God, and here are you making them yourself.'' The Turks are not quite so ignorant as this, but even they, not many years ago, when Sultan Selim introduced the art of printing, were led to believe that it was sinful to print the Khoran -that nothing but the pen and hand-writing could, with- out impiety, multiply the copie...

To the liditor of the Perth Gazette Herne Hill, March I2th, 1833 Sir, Having observed in your paper of last week a letter from an individual of the name of Lyon, dated, Woodbridge, Nov. 2Gtli, 1832. I beg to state that 1 was at that time the occupant of Woodbridge, and that Mr. Lyon was not : I am at a loss therefore, to know his reason for address- ing his letter from a place where he has never re- sided, as I am not aware of any other place in the Colony being named \\ oodbridge. I am Sir, Your obedient Servant, W. Locke JBrockman.
Freshwater Bay, 15 March, 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
Freshwater Bay, 15 March, 1833. Mr. Editor, Sir, In last weeks Perth Gazette I find my name so incorrectly made use of, and false statements attached thereto, both hy yourself, and your correspondent, that I beg you will not for the future repeat the offence nor use my name at all in your paper without my authority. You are at liberty to publish this. I am sir, your obedient servant, JOHN BUTLER. Mr. Butler shall have his wish, unless he, should per chance appear at the Quarter Sessions. Editor. We are happy to have it in our power to state that the subject of a new regulati- on to facilitate the conveyance of the mail between Perth and Fremantle, is now un- der consideration; it is fully anticipated that some steps will soon be taken to af- r ford the public this desirable and essential/ accomodation. JefFeries is the name ofthe soldier who found the lost notes, and restored them to Mrs. Birkett ; this circumstance we have a pleasure in recording : it is as honorable to the charact...
CIVIL COURT, PERTH, 12th March, 1833, BEFORE G. F. MOORE, ESQ, Civil Commissioner [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
CIVIL COURT, PERTH, 12th March, 1833, Before G. F. Moore, Esq., Civil Commissioner. At the opening of the Court Capt. Graham, on behalf of Mr. Hall, appeared to shew cause for a new trial in the case of Anderson v. Hall, in which, judgment on the previous court day, had gone by &nbsp; &nbsp; Default. A new trial granted. The parties being &nbsp; desirous of altering into the case for the present sitting, wished to be informed, whether it could, be opened without being registered, to which the Commissioner replied, "Provided both parties &nbsp; agree to bring the case forward, and comply with the usual course adopted, and enter it in the pro- per shape on the Books, as far as my convenience may be affected, I shall not throw any obstacle in the way.—It may be entered to-day and heard to- morrow." &nbsp; Leake v.

NATIVE CORROBORY AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
NATIVE CORROBORY AT PERTH. At the solicitation of Yagan, who &nbsp; had not been present at the celebration &nbsp; of this native festival on previous occa- sions, Capt. Ellis was induced to allow the Swan River and the King George's men to hold a corrobory in Mr. Purkis's yard, on Wednesday evening last, which attracted an overflowing audience. A- bout dusk the two tribes assembled, and commenced their preparations by chalk- &nbsp; ing each others breasts in tastful devices, &nbsp; resembling the spangled decorations of &nbsp; the riders at Astleys, which cerimony &nbsp; was accompanied by a hurdy-gurdy &nbsp; chaunt chorused by the party. They &nbsp; appeared highly flattered by the interest &nbsp; the audience took in their manoeuvers, and preparatory to the entertainment, &nbsp; stalked to and through rehearsing their chaunts, and exercising their singular attitudes, with all the self complacency of ...
THE UNION, V, THE ALBION, OR THE INTERRUPTED SACRIFICE, A FARCE, IN 2 ACTS [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
THE UNION, V, THE ALBION, OR THE INTERRUPTED SACRIFICE, A Farce, in 2 Acts This piece in which the worthy Hosts ("each in himself a host") of the Union and the Albion were to have taken principal characters, to the infinite disappointment of the laughter loving public, was suppressed a few day's ago by the authority of the civil commissioner, the parties not having a license to perform in the open air They were both bound over for a time, not to get up any similar perform- ances; but as they have retained their Arms, the public may still indulge the hope of being afforded this rational, and fashionable amusement of the day There was an under plot, in which Mr Armstrong and Mr Darby, were to have made their appear- ance, we believe for the first time in the characters of seconds; they are represented to have felt most indignant at the intervention of the Magistrate, and therefore determined to get up a farce of their own which the vigilance of the constables defeated. In the present ...
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
Destructive Fire at Perth. On Wednesday morning last about 7 o' clock, an alarming fire broke out at Mrs. Birkett's Bungalo, which in the course of 20 minutes extended its ravages over this and the adjoining cottages, and the whole of the premises within this short space of time, were leveled with the ground. Soon after the flames burst forth, the Bugle sounded the alarm, which drew many per- sons to the spot, who readily lent every assistance in their power, in addition to the aid afforded by those in the neighbour- hood, and by their praiseworthy exertions a portion of the property was saved; but we regret to learn the loss sustained, is still very considerable , comprising many articles which cannot be replaced in the colony; it is said that many important pa- pers and documents have fallen a prey to the devouring element. Mrs. Birkett had a narrow escape, the flames having reached the bed upon which she was lying, before she was aware of her perilous situation. Unhappily this la...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 March 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL It is difficult to account for the diversi- ty of opinion which we have heard express- &nbsp; ed upon the subject of the proposed plan &nbsp; for remedying the inconvenience at pre- sent experienced, by those who have oc- casion to navigate the river beyond Perth. &nbsp; The Gentlman who suggested the plan, it &nbsp; is not to be supposed, would hazard his &nbsp; professional reputation, without a positive &nbsp; conviction of the ultimate success of the measures he proposes; neither is it reason- able to imagine that the Honorable Gen- tlemen to whose consideration it must &nbsp; have been submitted, could be so easily &nbsp; hood-winked to acquiesce in "dribling" a- way the public money, as "an old hand" ignorantly designates it, unless they were also satisfied with the practicability of the plan. We think it would have been as weil for "an old hand" to have husbanded his '"pudling" rema...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 March 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL N As the first Quarter since the es- tablishment of this Journal will expire .with ¿he next number, we beg respect- fully to intimate to our subscribers, who have availed themselves of the option of paying at the end of the Quarter, that we shall take the liberty of transmitting our receipts in the course of the week. Mr. Bateman is authorized by us to re- ceive any payments, on account of this papç£r whose receipt shall be a sufficient discharge. Owing to the absence of a loan Bank or some available medium of accommoda- tion, our progrese as a community has of late been considerably retarded, and the consequences are now felt by every branch of our commercial as well as agricultural community. A stronger instance of this cannot be adduced than the one reported in our'last weeks proceedings in the Civil Court; it is a grievous hardship that a per- son possessed of property, far beyond the amount of any outstanding claims, and with good, efficient bills...
Mr. LEWIS s PUBLIC SALE AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 March 1833
Mr. LEWIS s PUBLIC SALE AT PERTH, We were glad to find this Sale attended with a fairer sprinkling of purchasers than we have been of late accustomed to, and the averags of the prices obtained, left little occasion for complaint on the part of the seller. The flour appeared to be the principal attraction, but notwithstanding it is re- tailing at 7d. and 8d. per lb-, it was knocked down, by the bag at 4|d. and 5d. Five tons were ad- vertized and we believe the whole disposed of, at the prices we have quoted. Mr. Lewis conducted this, his first sale, at Perth, in a manner which gave general satisfaction.-The Mare advertized for sale drew down many of the country gentlemen, but although great disposition was evinced to pur- chase, she was however, returned to the stable. She was put up at Ü118., with a cart and harness. Some official papers have just been printed respecting the measures taken to promote the moral and religious instruction of the abrogin inal inhabitants of New Holland ...
