THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1834. The Quarterly Meeting of the Mem- bers of the Agricultural Society took place yesterday at Guildford. The Meet- ing falling so late in the week, we must postpone our general report of the Pro- ceedings until our next ; premising, how- ever, that this was an occasion of con- siderable interest. His Excellency Sir James Stirling, accompanied by Captain Blackwood of the " Hyacinth," Mr. Taylor, of King George's Sound, and several other Gentlemen, after visiting, in the course of the day, the farms in the neighbourhood of Guildford, and in- specting the stock brought to the cattle show, at 4 o'clock, joined the Members of the Society, at the Cleikum Inn, where an excellent dinner was provided, and 48 persons sat down to partake oí it. The day is gone by for giving a description of our bill of fare on these occasions as a matter of wonder; but in justice to the exertions made by Mr. Dodd, we must state that the supply was abunda...

" Dunn. " Lacy. On the motion of Mr. Mudie, seconded by Mr. Taylor, Mr. George Cheyne was unanimously called to the Chair. Mr. Cheyne then stated, that the Meeting had keen called for the purpose of considering the pro- priety of petitioning the Home Government that this should be made a Convict Station. The Meeting were fully aware that this Colony was established upon the principles of Free Labor, and the general opinion of the Settlers formerly was that the presence of Convicts would be irk- some ; but experience proves that the difficulties Settlers have to encounter in the progress of estab- lishing themselves in the interior cannot be over...

PETITION. Unto the Right Honorable E. G. Stanley, His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies. The Petition of the Settlers of King George's Sound, in the Colony of Western Australia, Humbly sheweth, That your Petitioners, though fully aware that &nbsp; this Colony was established upon the principles of &nbsp; j Free Labor, an4 that the general opinion of the Settlers formerly was, that the presence of Con- victs would be objectionable, now find, that the difficulties they have to encounter in the progress &nbsp; of establishing themselves in the interior cannot be overcome by the exertions ol private individuals separated, as they must be, at remote distances from each other, and without any means of com- munication ; and, therefore, that the unpleasant feeling regarding the presence of Convicts must yield to the more impoitant object of advancing themselves and the Colony in general. That although your Petitioners deem it to be necessary tha...
MURRAY RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 8 November 1834
MURRAY RIVER. Capt. Daniell of H. M.'s 21st Fusiliers, ac- companied by Mr W. H. Drake, of the Commis- sariat Department, on the return of His Excellen- &nbsp; cy the Governor to head-quarters, proceeded with a re-enforcement to the Murray, to protect Mr. Peels settlement from any acts of retaliation on the part of the Natives. We learn from Mr. Drake, who returned on Wednesday night, that no attempt had been made to molest the Settlers at the Murray, but that a party of the 21st, on their way down to the Murray River, fortunately arrived at Clarence Town (the late residence of Mr. Peel but now abandoned) in time to check the progress of a fire which was raging with con- siderable violence, and threatened the destruction of the stores, containing property to the value of 2 or £300. It is generally supposed that the natives set fire to the dwelling house, which was entirely consumed. A constant patrol had been out in the neighbourhood of the settlement for the past week; they...

ANNUAL MEETING i OF TrHE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN AGRIGULTURAL ] SOCIETY. PATRON-HIS EXCELLENCY SIR JAMES STIRLING. Guildford, November 7, 1834 This Meeting was exceedingly well attended, between 30 and 40 persons being present. The Secretary to the Society, Mr. W. Tanner, having read the Minutes of the last Meeting, beg- ged, although it might be out of the regular order, to be permitted to propose, previously to the Meeting proceeding to ballot for the new Mem- bers, that any persons in the possession or occu- pation of 500 acres of land, in the Colony, should be eligible. Mr. John Lewis, concurred in the policy of introducing a regulation to the effect proposed by Mr. Tanner, as persons coming into the Colony, under the new land regulations, although tenants of large estates, and valuable members of the community, would be excluded from the Society. Mr Tanner's proposition was unanimously carried. The ballot was then commenced ; when Mr W. Knight, Mr. Habgood, and Mr. Hinds, were duly ...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 November 1834
VARIETIES. Origin and description of the CELEBRATED CORPS CALLED " SKINNER^ HORSE." -These corps were introduced during the wars of Lord Lake, in 1803 and 1804 A proclamation of Lord Wellesley's had brought over to the British many European and Anglo-Asiatic officers, from the service of the native-powers ; pensions and protection were offered, on the condition of their leaving those who gave them employment. Col. Skinner, the son of the British officer, had served with reputation and success, under Perron and De Boigne, two French officers, in command of Scindcah's forces. In those times, an officer of talent and enter- prise,'could not fail of rising to importance, the field being occupied by so few candidates ; and it waa not unfrequently the case, that an adventurer, from a concatenation of favorable circumstances, arrived at the possession of power and wealth, adequate to the command of resjiect for neighbour- ing' chiefs, the complete dépendance of his own followers, and to th...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 November 1834
CORRESPONDENCE, -oo To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette:1 Sir,-In your last week's Paper I observe a paragraph commencing with an account of an ac- cident which has happened to the Rev. Mr. Wit- tenoom, our worthy Colonial Chaplain, and with your wishes for his speedy recovery I most cordial- ly unite. Near the conclusion of this article is a statement on which I beg to make a few remarks. You say " Fremantle and Guildford remain, as they have done for years, without any spiritual instruction." Now it by this assertion you only intend your readers to understand that no spiritual instruction has been received at Guildford from any ordained &nbsp; clergyman, you state the matter fairly ; but if you imply that spiritual instruction cannot be given by other persons than the clergy of the Establish- ment, you certainly advance a doctrine in which many in this Colony cannot agree with you. For some years, several persons have gratuitously attended Guildford on Sundays, and endeav...

DEATH OF CAPTAIN ELLIS, PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT OF THE CORPS OF MOUNTED POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 15 November 1834
DEATH OF CAPTAIN ELLIS, PRINCIPAL SUPERINTENDENT OF THE CORPS OF MOUNTED POLICE. &nbsp; We lament that it is our painful duty to an- nounce the death of Captain Ellis, who was spear- &nbsp; ed by a Native at the commencement of the en- counter with the Natives (which took place on the 27th ultimo,) at Pinjarra, on the banks of the Murray. The unfortunate sufferer lingered until Tuesday morning last when he expired, at his residence, near Mount Eliza, to which place he had been removed about a week previously. The spear having struck the deceased in the right temple, he was affected with frequent fits of deliri- um; his friends were consequently interdicted by &nbsp; the medical attendants (the Colonial Surgeon and Dr. Langley) from showing those personal atten- tions which the occasion required and their own feelings would have dictated, it appears to be a question, whether the fall from the horse, rather than the spear wound, was the occasion of death. &...

GOVERNMENT NOTICE. Colonial Secretary's Office, Perth, November 14, 1834. IT is with sincere grief that His Excellency the Governor has di- rected to be announced to the Public the Decease of T. T. Ellis, Esquire, late Principal Superintendent of the Corps of Mounted Police in this Settlement, and formerly of His Majesty's 14th Regiment of Dragoons. The ability and zeal which that Gentleman brought to the discharge of his Official Duties, are sufficiently well known to every member of this community. His death, arising, as it did, from a wound, received under cir- cumstances reflecting upon him the highest credit for judgment, decision and gallantry, will be long deplored ; and his memory will be respected and revered by all those who hold in estimation the valuable qualities which have made the termination of his life a Public loss. By His Excellency s Command, PETER BROWN, Colonial Secretary. ABOUT TO LEAVE THE COLONY. INTENDING shortly to leave the Colony, I hereby give notice of...

CORRESPONDENCE. -00 To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." COCO'S ISLANDS. Sir,-If you think that the following remarks relating to the Coco's Islands (recently visited by this Sloop) will "prove interesting to your Readers,, you are at liberty to publish the same in the Perth Gazette : On the 3d October, 1834, H.M/s S.

The whole group has obtained the name of the Borneo, or Coral Is- lands, but are better known by the names Coco's or Heeli g Is'ands. The islands, about 22 in number, form nearly * circle, and enclose within them a spacious bay about fourteen miles from norih to south, andmine or ten from east to west. Where the islands are situated at some distance from each other, banks *f coral reefs fill up the space between them, over which the surf breaks with great violence. The «ntrance to the anchorage being on the lee side of the group, the s...
