CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the "Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 September 1834
CORRESPONDENCE. J To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette:1 " j j aÇr. Editor,-Young'as we are in years, few as we are in numbers, it is distressing to think we should be, on the,eve of splitting into factions. 11 is most sincerely to be Jamen ted that w'ß should i not allow tfte res parvas concordia erescere. But it ' has been shrewdly remarked> that mottos and subjects "are often * diametrically opposite. Your Correspondent "a Trader," 1 fear, has done little to strengthen any weak link that might' have ex~ isted in our chain of union with each other.« He, indeed, is the first to proclaim that any such weak- ness ., did exjtaç. ^Societies and j Clubs have been formed at Fremantle as well as at Perth, and per- sons admitted members after their formation. .Mer- chants and Agriculturists, Civil and Military Offi- cers," have, or have not joined in originating them, or have been admitted subsequently In so small a community some of these professions ai d occu- pations are often blende...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 4 October 1834
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1834. The Jolly Rambler left this on the 15th July for Timor,-she however proceeded to Java, and after touching at five ports to ascertain the state of the markets, returned here in ten weeks, with a cargo calculated amply to pay the adventurers for j their trouble. At Surrabaia, Captain Brignell in- forms us, they heard that the Sir Francis Mae Naughten had been condemned, having run a ground near that port. She was sold for 1,300 rupees, and was afterwards repaired at a trifling expense by the purchaser, and is again afloat. The loss of a vessel which, had. sailed from Java for this port,, about nine months back, commanded by Capt. Willett, is strongly suspected, some of the packages which had been put on board at Surra- baia having been found on the beach to the south- ward of the Island. We hav« no further tidings of the Mercury. *, I

(From the " Cape Advertiser.") Since our last, we have received files of English Papers up to the 18th April. The ex- tracts given below will explain the origin,'progress and termination of the unfortunate disturbances in France, together with the measures likely to be adopted for strengthening the hands of Government. In the British Parliament, several important measures have been adopted for the internal im- provement of the Kingdom. Of these, the chief are, a plan for the commutation and redemption of Tithes ; for the revision and better administration of the Poor Laws ; and for admitting all classes of men, without distinction of Christian Creeds, to an equal participation in the academical honors bestowed by the two English Universities. On all these important heads, the nation has reason to be satisfied by the spirit manifested by the Re- formed Parliament The subject of National Education was also brought in much detail before the House of Lords, by Lord Brougham. His Lordshi...

RETURN OF THE EXPEDITION TO THE NORTHWARD, IN SEARCH OF THE SUPPOSED WRECK. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 4 October 1834
RETURN OF THE EXPEDITION TO THE NORTHWARD, IN SEARCH OF THE SUPPOSED WRECK. The numerous reports, emanating from the Natives, to which we have already given publicity, that a vessel had been seen lying on the coast about 30 day's walk to the Northward having at- tracted the attention of the local Government, it was deemed advisable to charter the Monkey, a small schooner lying in our port at the time, to convey a party to explore the coast. The charge of this Expedition was entrusted to Mr. H. M. Ommaney, of the Survey Department, who, with the most praiseworthy alacrity, volunteered his services. The party consisted of the Gentleman we have named, three volunteers from amongst the privates of the 21st Regt, with Mr. Thomas Hunt, as second in command. The plan of operations laid down for Mr. Om- maney's guidance, had to be adhered to by the party as far as circumstances would admit, is conveyed in the following extract from his letter of instructions : " The situation of the strande...

SAXONY SHEEP. (From the "CAPE ADVERTISER.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834
SAXONY SHEEP. (From the " Cape Advertiser."') Two dollars to tw - and a half per pound (3s. to 3s. 8d.) for Australian Wool! Suppose Mr. Michiel Breda's Wool of last year had been equal to this, (in a few years it will be as good if not superior), he would have realised for one crop. 2,500¿. ! Is there any mode of investing capital in this Colony, in which the returns will bear a comparison with this ? The quantity of foreign wool imported into Great Britain last year amounted to 39,618,508/. ! -woith, at the lowest estimate, Four Millions Sterling ! In such a state of things, with such a market before us, we are not surprised at the high prices given for Merino Sheep from New South VVales, or from Saxony. It reminds us of Dr. Johnson's exclamation at the sale of Mr. Thrale's Brewery : -" Sir, it is not vats and barrels we have to dis- pose of: it is the potentiality of growing rich /" We are glad to learn that an investment of these valuable animals, forty-nine in number, just ar- ...
GREEN TURTLE, [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834
GREEN TURTLE, Of a brownish color, with 13- scales on the disc-. -This is the esculent or common green turtle ;. the latter name being derived from the color of the fat. This is supposed to be owing to the vegetable matters on which the animal leeds, and especially the zostera marina, or. Untie grass. This species is one of the largest, often exceeding b. feet in length, and weighing 5 or 600 lbs. The shell is somewhat heart-shaped pointed at the ex- tremity, and composed of fifteen dorsal divisions, with 25 marginal pieces. The color is of a dull, pale brown, more or less variegated with deeper undulations, but less strong and beautiful colors, titan the hawk's-bill turtle, which yields the tor- toise shell. This species of turtle has long been considered a delicious food by the inhabitants of many, of the: inlands and.continents within the toned zone. Im the time of Sir Hans Sloane, the inhabitants of Port Royal, in Jamaica, employed 40 sloops for the purpose, of catching them. Th...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834
VARIETIES. Method op Soldkring Shells.-Clean the two sides of the shells which you wish to join to- gether ; then having joined them, wrap them up in linen folded double and well moistened ; then heat two plates of iron pretty hot, that they may keep their heat for some time ; and putting the shells rolled up between them under a press, which you must icrsw very tight, leave them there till the whole is cold, and they will be soldered. If you do not succeed the first time, repeat the pro- cess -En. Brit.. New Process of Engraving, and New Pro- cess of Blasting. - The frequent and useful ap- plication of science to practical purposes is one of the distinguishing features of our age. Electricity has been employed in engraving from steel plates ; and we leam that the expe. iments are likely to lead to great improvements in that branch of art Î On the other hand, the galvanic battery is turned, with success to the instantaneous ignition of gun- powder in lasting stones and rocks.- In ca...

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-In reading your account of my trial, I am aurprised|to see the version -you have givtn that affair. In the first place, you gave all the evi- dence of the prosecutor in full ; but in the defence, you have abridged it materially ;-you have en- tirely left out the evidence of Miss Bateman, and Mr. Ledger, as they both gave evidence of seeing the gunpowder in my possegsion one month prior to the arrival of Habgoods in this Colony. You have also left out the productions of my invoices in Court, wherein the goods in question are men- tioned. You have also said that I was accused in taking 15 pieces of calico If you will take the trouble of inquiring of Mr. Stone, you will find you are mistaken. That I was not charged with a yard of calico. Conscious that you would not willingly be a party to injure any man, I hope you will give this your most serious consideration. Conscious of my innocence, I did not fear an in- vestigation, but even sought it...
ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834
ENGLAND. Education, April 16.-The Lord Chancellor moved for various returns relative to education throughout the country, and stated that it was his intention to renew a bill which he introduced into parliament 14 years ago, for establishing parish schools on a priuciple similar to that existing in Scotland. The noble lord then went into a detail i, of the state of education in England as it appeared! ' from the different returns which had already been made. He had for some time patt been engaged in making, inquiry into the progtess of education ; this he effected by seeking for returns from five or six hundred parishes taken at random, inferring that they should form a fair standard for judgment The results went to show that an increase had taken place (for he had received about five hundred answers) in the ratio of two to one tince former years, both in the number of schools & the number of scholars attending them. In the county of Bedford in the year 1818, the number of d...
To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." TRIAL BY JURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 October 1834
To the Editor of ".The Perth Gazette." TRIAL BY JURY. Sir,-Trial by Jury has justly been called the glory of English law-the palladium of British freedom ; but I am afraid that.its introduction into a y >->ung community is not productive of those advantages which are attended in its operation in an extensive and populous society. Our numbers are so few, and our society, I am sorry to stale, so divided into hostile parties, that it is impossible to procure a Jury, either in Civil or Criminal matters, totally impartial. Greatly is it to be regretted that the standard of morality in this Colony is low, foi an appeal to the Deity is not taken into much consideration by many ofthat body from whose ranks Common Jurymen are selected. In'the Criminal Court of this Colony, it sometimes happens that prisoners have been tried by a Jury of their own friends, who have at- tended for the \ery purpose of being empannelled as Jurymen. It is well known that every prisoner has a right to challe...
