EXPEDITION TO THE HOTHAM RIVER. &nbsp; (From the Journal of Mr. Harris.) &nbsp; &nbsp; In consequence of an application to the local Government by several gentlemen who have grants of land on the Hotham and William Rivers, and others who were desirous of exploring the Country with a view to effect locations therein, the Go- vernment appointed Mr. Hillman, the Colonial Draughtsman, to lead a party consisting of five settlers, a corporal and two soldiers of the 21st Regt., and two mounted policemen, in all eleven persons, with ten horses, in fine order and well equipped The Government party were furnished with rations for twenty days ; the Settlers pro- vided themselves with their own horses, and pro- visions for a longer period Mr. Hillman's instructions were to proceed to Kelmscott, and from thence along Mr. Dale's track across the hills as far as he went, and to continue the same course (the most direct to King George's Sound) to the Hotham River, which he w...

PUBLIC MEETING, Held at the temporary Court House, Perth, on Monday, the 16th Feb., 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 February 1835
PUBLIC MEETING, Held al the temporary Court House, Perth, on Monday, the i6th Feb., 1835. This, the first Public Meeting held in the Colony since the establishment of the office of Sheriff, was very respectably and numerously at tended,-and we observed that all the most influential Settlers in the Colony were present. About one o'clock, H. Donaldson, Esq, Sheriff, ascended the hustings, and took the chair, sur- rounded by the gentlemen who contemplated taking an active part in the proceedings. The Under Sheriff, Mr. G. F. Stone, having read the Requisition, The Chairman n se and addressed the Meeting. He considered it (he observed) necessary to say a few words,-and he would confine himself to but few remarks, in order that as little time as possible should be wasted. It must be borne in mind that he was addressing the Meeting officially. He was, to a certain degree, a stranger to the majority of thoi&lt;e around him, but he was personally known to many gentlemen at the Meeti...
EXPEDITION TO THE HOTHAM. [FROM THE JOURNAL OF MR. HARRIS.] (Continued from our last) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 February 1835
EXPEDITION TO THE HOTHAM. [FROM THE JOURNAL OF MR. HARRIS.] (Continued from our last.) &nbsp; Friday, 16th. — Started at four o'clock, to trace the river downwards ; it was here running N.W. We found large alluvial flats as we descended, and the land from the bank of the river as far as we could see was of the same favorable character, with rather more underwood ; the grass more abundant, if possible, probably owing to the shade of the underwood. We saw no change for five miles. The course of the river was N.W. at this point, but it was westward generally. Here Mr. Hillman, to our great regret, determined to leave the river, supposing it to run ton ard s Port Lechenault : we (the settlers) were all anxious to trace it lower. The river was much wider where we left it. The course taken was N.W., with a view of getting clear of the hills as soon as possible. We con- tinued our course twelve miles, according to Mr. Hillman crossing several valleys with dry water- courses, all de...
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazetted." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 February 1835
CORRESPONDENCE, To the Editor of " The Perth Gazetted Sir,-On reading the account of the Hotham River Expedition in your two last Papers, I find' a few inaccuracies which I am desirous of correct- ing, if you will favor me by giving them insertion. Mr. fiarris states, that on the 14th January/ "In the afternoon, Mr. Hillman and I, with one soldier, made an excursion ten miles South of »he river." This certainly must be a mistake in copying the Journal, as the distance walked South was about four miles' only. He also says, "that he does not profess to notice every trifling devia- tion from the course, no opportunity having offered of comparing notes with the leader of the party/* tri reply to which, 1 beg to say, thflfc whenever the course was altered, the direction was .always given upon api'Mention, and that he both saw and read my Journal some time before his ap- peared in the Gazette It is evident that Mr. H. shows any thing but his usual friendly feeling throughout the Journal ;...

SYDNEY SAND. GLASS. (From the Sydney Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 February 1835
SYDNEY SAND. GLASS. f(From the Sydney Gazette.) We have much pleasure in inserting the follow- ing communication from our respectable fellow colonist, Mr. James Simmons ; and are happy to find that Mr. King's discovery is duly appreciated at home, notwithstanding the objections of cavil- lers here, and the paltry notice which our govern- ment has taken, of so valuable a produce as the article in question is likely to become :- i To the Editor of the Sydney Gazette " t Sir,-Seeing in your paper of the 28th ultimo, an article from a correspondent, endeavouring to detract from the importance of the discovery of the peculiar properties of the. Sydney sand, for the mvnufacture of flint glass, allow me to assure ,you, in whatever light your correspondent may vjew it, that the manufacturing and scientific men in Lon- don look upon the matter very differently. To confirm the above, I hand you a copy of a letter received from Mr. Pellatt, the, eminent glass manufacturer in London, per New Yo...
JAVA. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 February 1835
JAVA. (From the Hobart Town Courier) The disturbances ,in the Dutch possessions pf thjs beautiful Island were, we are sorry to say, Va ther increased than otherwise. A p> oposal was made of making a ditch round Batavia, as a sort, of fortification, but the great expense it was feared ' woujd prevent it. The following account of this place from, a late East India Magazine will be in- teresting to the reader : /'The price of Javanese labor is from 2d. to 4d. per day ; that of a Chinese artisan about three times that sum. The in habitan Is are well fed and clothed, and well housed ; and in the neighbour- hood of European estates crime is very uuh-equent. " The mögt beautiful "roads intersect Java from one end of the island to the other; the main road is about 700 ipiles long, and may be posted the whole way at the rate of ten miles an hour ; the cross roads are about 500 miles in length, and new and most extensive roads are in further pro- gress.

FOREIGN JOURNALS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 February 1835
FOREIGN JOURNALS. Under this head we have to acknowledge, in- dependent of the Journals from the Sister Colonies, with which we are regularly supplied, the receipt of the Madras, New York, and Boston Journals ; the former to the end of April, the latter to the end of February, 1834. These Journals have reached us through indirect channels, and conse- quently communicate out-of-date intelligence of political interest ; but we are gratified to find, thaH" they evince a strong interest in our welfare, and a daily increasing anxiety to be made acquainted with the progress of the Colony. This, in return for their kind consideration, w« shall make it our duty, through the medium of tiiis Journal, to sup- ply them with; and at the same time that we ex- press our delight at being the object of notice in so remote a quaiter as North America, we would hold out this circumstance to our brother colonists as a cheering incentive to further active exertion.

Mackie, Esq., Judge Advocate ; Hon. J.S. Roe, Esq., Surveyor General; J. B. Wittenoom, Esq., Colonial Chaplain ; and D A.C.G. Lewis, Mr. Bland, and Mr. Drummond. The accounts from the Sound, on the whole, are not so cheering as we could have desired. But litle progress has been made towards the improve- ment of the town, or forming establishments in the &nbsp; interior of the country, for the purposes of agri- culture or grazing. By the vessels lately arrived we have received Hobart Town Journals to the 2d January, convey ing English intelligence to the first week in Sept. Parliament was prorogued on the 15th August.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-Although, from some remarks Mr. Harris made to me, (previously to his Journal of the Hotham Hiver Exp dition being published in the Gazette), I had reas n to suppose he had read my Journal, I now find from himself and other pariiez, that he saw the same without reading it ; as such, i request that you will be kind enough to insert this iii your next as a correction ofthat part of my letter to you of the.24th ultimo. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, A. HILLMAN. [Injustice to Mr. Harris, we feel it our duty to acknowledge, that the mistake in the distance travelled over South from the Hotham, alluded to in Mr Hillman s letter last week, was an error of our own. Mr. Harris noticed the circumstance lo us, and it was our intention to have corrected the error hast week, but it escaped our recollection at the time we were going to press. -Ed.]

ENGLISH NEWS. KINGS SPEECH. " My Lords and Gentlemen, The numerous and important questions which have, in the presentas in the two preceding years, been submitted to your consideration, have im- posed upon you the necessity of extraordinary ex- ertions; and it is *ith a deep sense of the care and labor which you have bestowed up n the public business that I at length close the protract- ed session, and release you from your attendance. I continue to receive from all Foreign Powers assurances of their friendly disposition The negotiations, on account of which the Con- ferences in London upon the affairs of the Low Countries were suspended, have not yet been brought to a close ; and I have still to lament the continued postponement of a final settlement be- tween Holland and Belgium. On the other hand, I have derived the most sincere and lively satisfaction from the termination of the civil war which had so long distracted the Kingdom of Portugal ; and I icjoice to think that the trea...
