CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 October 1834

CORRESPONDENCE. -00 To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sia,~-In No. 74 new series of your valuable Journal you have published a letter from your Correspondent T. W. H., pointing out some of the peculiar difficulties we, as settlers in a new Colo- ny, have to contend with. I cannot pretend to answer your Correspondent in the same scientific 'form as to profit and loss, (my trade not having been about cattle from my youth,) but I can state a few plain facts which I have experienced, and leave those whom the sub- ject my concern, wherever they may be, to draw their own conclusions. The Cow which I shall select for example is of the Fatherland breed, and cost, at the Cape, £7 ; but 1 shall suppose her to cost £20, which is about the average price for which cows of the sort have been imported into the Colony. There is now living, including this Cow with her offspring, Four Cows, two of them heavy in calf, £. worth, on an average, 2bl. each..' 100 Four Steers^ going on two years old, ...

PETTY SESSIONS—FREMANTLE. OCTOBER 27, 1834. Before G. Leake, Esquire, J. P. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 November 1834

PETTY SESSIONS-FREMANTLE. OCTOBER 27, 1834. Before G. Leake, Esquire, J. P. Joseph Brignell, master of the * Jolly Ramb'er' cutter, complained that two of his seamen, John Brown and Thomas Bragier, had refused to pro-; ceed on his intended voyage from this port t© Java, had struck work, and otherwise behaved in a riotous manner. The men, in defence, stated that by the articles of agreement between them and tlie master they were only bound to proceed from Sydney to King George's Sound, or " other port or ports," and thence back to Sydney, and they had performed their engagement by woríring in the vessel from thi& port to Java and back. Ihey professed their willingness to go to Sydney. The case was adjourning till Wednesday, the 29th instant, belore G. Leake and R. M. B. Brow«, Esquires ; when John Duffield, on the part of the complainant, deposed, that he had accompanied Mr. Brignell on board of his vessel on Saturday, and that the prisoners behaved in a riotous and mutinous ...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 November 1834

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-The want of a respectable boarding-house in Perth for gentlemen occasionally visiting head- quarters is so much felt by settlers residing at a distance, that I am surprised it has never occurred to any one to try án experiment, which I have no doubt would be attended with complete success. The company at an inn is often unsuitable for those that prefer quietness and regularity. Your obedient Servant,. A TRAVELLER.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 November 1834

VARIETIES« Count Pecchio.-The view which this accomplished foreigner takes of England is highly flattering to the national character. He writes in the spirit of a man who regards, not only without jealousy, bul with admiration, the proud pre-eminence she maintains over all the other States of Europe, at the same lime referring her greatness to her enterprise, and both to the genius of freedom. The following sketch is drawn with much force and fidelity :-* 1 shall never he weary of repeating that England is rather a country to make observations on than to seek amusement in-it is a^ great scientific treatise. Its theatres are the arsenals of Deptford and Portsmouth, or the jEa&t anj west India docks; its paintings are the manufactures of Glasgow, of Manchester, of Leeds, of Halifax ; its coliseums, arches and arenas, are its smoky shops and factories, with which whole provinces are covered ; its champs elysêes are the iron mines of V/aies, the tin mines of Cornwall, the coal m...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 November 1834

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir, — Having been desirous of visiting my grant situated some distance from York, distin- guished by the name of " Northam," accompanied by five volunteers and a native named Weenit, who has been a length of time on familiar terms about my house, I left Guildford in progress on the morning of Monday, the 13th inst. I there- fore send you the particulars of our journey, though feeling convinced it has nothing to recom- mend it but correctness, being totally unused to such descriptions. Should you deem it worthy in- sertion in your Publication, I shall feel obliged, but if the contrary, you will favor me with an im- mediate return. The road from Guildford to York being already known, I shall commence with our departure from thence. Oct. 15th. — Proceeded from York at sunrise, steering N. N. W. over a good pasture country to the top of the hills, some of which had a barren appearance on the tops, the trees not thick, and rather scarce and stunted...

ENCOUNTER WITH THE NATIVES IN THE PINJARRA DISTRICT, ON THE BANKS OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 1 November 1834

ENCOUNTER WITH THE NATIVES IN THE PINJARRA DISTRICT, ON THE BANKS OF THE MURRAY. The report of this successful and decisive en-     counter with the Natives of the Murray, who have for some time been the terror of the neighbourhood was received with general satisfaction, - an opinion having prevailed that the system of lenity and forbearance hitherto adopted by the'Government was not calculated to ensure safety to either the lives or property of the settlers. We have not space to revert to the many atrocities committed by the tribe, upon which at length retribution has fallen ; they are, however, within the recollection of our Readers, having but recently transpired, and will fully justify the severity of the punishment. - A Gentleman, an eye witness, has obligingly favored us with the following narrative of the encounter ; from the respectability of the party, the accuracy of this report may be implicitly relied upon. The party consisted of His Excellency ...

STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 8 November 1834

STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH INDIA. An arrival from Bombay of the 20th May has' brought a detailed account of proceedings there relative to this great object. The native as well as the European inhabitants of (that presidency, have, it appears, been long desirous of opening a steam communication with Europe, and have held several meetings on the subject, the result of which was the appointment of a.committee to ascertain the best mode of putting such a plan into opera- tion, by establishing in the first instance a steam conveyance between Bombay and Suez. At a general meeting of the supporters of the plan, the committee reported the success of their labor, and recommended an appeal to the British community of India particularly, to raise by sub- scription a sum sufficient for the cost of one vessel, and that until a constant communication with Suez had been fairly established, any expectation of forming a connecting link between Alexandria and Malta would be premature ; but, at the same...

KING GEORGE'S SOUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 8 November 1834

KING GEORGE'S SOUND. By the Ellen, Government Schooner, we have intelligence froih King George's Sound to the end of October, and, we lament to say, not altogether of a favorable nature, the Settlers there remaining in a state of torpor, awaiting the enlivening in- fluence of assistance from Government, to open road» into the interior of the country,-where they can'find soil and pasturage adapted for agricultural purposes. That the Settlers' may reasonably re- quire this assistance to a limited extent, we are ready to admit, and haye little doubt the subject has been under His Excellency the Governors consideiation ; but we would caution the Settler» at the Sound against embarking too generally in agi ¡cultural purbuits on a spot Where their capital can be applied to much greater advantage tothem sêlves and the community, in the Fisheries or Sealing If strangers can make it answer tneir purpose to come to their harbours, and within a shoit distance of their doors, for these commodit...

MAGISTRATES COURT-PERTH. Before TV. H. Mackie, Esq., J. P. COSHLAINT MADE BY A NATIVE Boy ¿AGAINST a Private of the 21 st Regt.-Narrall, a nativ« boy, about fifteen years of age, laid a complaint before the sitting Magistrates at Perth, on Wed- nesday last, to the effect, that he had been beaten and ill used by a soldier named Liston. His shoulder was sore-the skin had been broken, and there was some appearance of swelling. Edward Kimmons, a private in H. M/s 2lst Regt., deposed that he was sentry on Wednesday morning at the barrack gate. It was about 11 in the morning when the Native (the complainant) came to the gate and asked for Ryan, at the same time shewing a paper, which turned out to ' be for Ryan, to whom it was given, and the Native was understood to mean that he would wait for an answer. As the defendant was coming through the gate with his firelock for guard, the Native said to him " how do you do ?" To which the defendant replied " Get out of my way," at the same time m...

LAND REGULATIONS IN WESTERÎJ . AUSTRALIA. By a letter received from the Secretary's OflSc«, in reply to a query on the part of a settler/about , ta'iake possession of some land .over the.hills,|i|ie property of an.original occupant, but unimproved, we obtain information, that it is not the intention of the Local Government to carry into effect, at present, the Regulation of the Crown which gives ike ruht of levying 6d. per acre upon all unim- proved lands after the termination of a certain period, as His Excellency the Governor has not received any instructions to levy the fine refened to. But it is intimated that it is out of His Ex- cellency's power to give any pledge as to the Regulations under which land is held in the Settle- ment, being suspended in their operations beyond the period when the Home Government may de- cide on enforcing them.

SPECIMENS PRESENTED TO THE PRESI- DENT & MEMBERS OF THE AGRI CULTURAL SOCIETY. Trek-hark Hemp.-A specimen of what was termed " Swan River tree-bark hemp," was pre- sented by Mr. Drummond as a valuable substitute for hemp or flax. It was described by that Gen- tleman as follows :-*4 The trees pre&ented to the President and Members of the Agricultural Socie ty, are specimens (male and female) of a small indigenous tribe, the bark of which has many of the properties of hemp or flax ; it belongs to the 2r2d class, Dioecia of Linnaeus, and to the natural order Urticce.

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 8 November 1834

VARIETIES. Heat produced by Friction-We stated a few weeks since, that a machine had been invented in this state to warm factories and all large public edifices by friction. We had but little definitive knowledge then of its merits or struc- ture, but within a few days have seen it in operation in this town. We now speak from personal obser- vation. The machinery which generates the heat consists of a pair of horizontal circular plates of last iron, enclosed in a brick oven, about four feet in diameter, and weighing 1600 pounds. They operate upon each other precisely like a pair of mill-stone«, with this exception, the upper one is stationary, and the lower one revolves. The ordinary speed is eighty revolutions a minute, and the velocity in two hours is sufficient to raise the thermometer in the oven in which they are en- closed to 500 degrees. The size of the plates, their thickness and the velocity with which they revolve, are considerations which the size of the building to be he...
