SPECIAL SITTINGS. Tuesday, 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 March 1835

SPECIAL SITTINGS. Tuesday, 17. Four seamen, who had shipped themselves on board the Jolly Rambler at Sydney, brought separate actious against the Master, \V. Brigncll, for wages; in which they were each suecc&sful. Verdict in favor of Brown, 28i. -ditto-of Brazier, 26/. 15s. -ditto-of Roberts, 14/. 2s. 4d. -ditto-of Williams, 1/. 10s. 6d. Mr Clark appeared for the plaintiffs, and Mr. Weavell for the defendant. By the articles of agreement, which the men had signed without reading, and merely from receiving a verbal statement of the contents, it is expressed, that no wages are to be paid until the vessel arrives at Sydney; consequently, as the Captain might keep the men out of their wages for an indefinite period, the contract was held by the Commissioner to be illegal, and Judgment entered for the plaintiffs.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 March 1835

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-The Article you have copied from the Van Diemen's Land Journal is evidently written by a person totally ignorant of the system of Banking ; particularly the system pursued in Scotland. The principal establishments in that Country are chartered Companies ; and although the proprietors of bank stoek are not liable tor more than double the amount of their shaies, the system hitherto has succeeded, not only in secur- ing a handsome profit to the share-hoider, but it has also succeeded in raiding the Country to a pitch of prosperity, which it could never ha\ e at- tained in the absence of chartered Banking Com- panies. The Bank of England is established on a similar principle as regards the protection of the share-holder, still the mode of transacting business is widely different, and, in my opinion, not so free from risk as the principle laid down in the Scotch chartered Banks. The Bank of England employs the greater part of it...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 March 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. The tenders for Flour were opened at the Commissariat Office yesterday. Mr. Sherwin, of Sydney, obtained the preference, at 5d. per lb , in consideration of his flour being considerably finer than that of two Settlers who tendered at 4Jd. This circumstance has been the occasion of some little annoyance to the Agriculturists, and a gene- ral desire is expressed, that His Excellency would in future give instructions for the receival of Colonial flour only ; more especially when it can be tendered below the market price of imported Flour. It would certainly be desirable, for the interests of the Settler, that such an arrangement should be effected ; but it must be borne in iwind, * . . iii,. that we are not in a position to shut.our doors against importations; consequently policy, if not a sense of justice to the importer, demands, that *he public tenders should be received without any restrictions. 1 he Flour tendered yesterday at a £d less than the acc...

BUSHRANGERS IN ARGYLE. (From a Correspondent to the Sydney Monitor.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 March 1835

BUSHRANGERS IN ARGYLE. (From a Correspondent to the Sydney Monitor.) The Bushrangers have been playing great pranks at Monoroo ; they have shot five or six tame blacks, from a fear of being tracked, and also a Mr Shepherd, the overseer of Mr. Cat terell. It appears they robbed Mr. Catterell in the middle of the night ; made Mr. She-pherd serve out a large quantity of rum to all the men ; made him drink two tumblers full himself, and left just before day-break. Whilst he was serving the rum out, they asked him if he had not lately had one of his men flogged, and horsewhipped another ? He replied, he had ; but that they richly deserved it. They then said, we will tie you up presently, and see how you like fifty. After they had been absent about an hour, two of them returned with only their pistols-they came back to look for a cap of a duelling pistol of Mr. Catterell's which they had taken. Shepherd, supposing that they were returning for the purpose of putting their threat into execu...

EXTRACTS. MR. GUTZLAFF'S VOYAGES ALONG THE COAST OF CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 March 1835

EX TRACTS MR. GUTZl.AFFS VOYAGFS ALONG THE COAST OF CHINA. When the office of a missionary happens to fall into the hands oí a man of active entet prising character learned, or apt to acquire learning, and not absolutely dead or indifferent to secular affairs, it is surprising how great are the services he can render to society. His ostensible functions, by investing him willi a kind of sacred character, give him easy and secure access to countries wheie others would be regarded with suspicion, because their motives are not understood, lu this waj the Jesuits, the Moravians, and a lew. a very few, of the missionaries sent out by our societies, if they have not always succeeded in their primary object, like the alchymists of old, have obtained " some good unsought experiments by the way," in the knowledge they were enabled to impart of foreign countries. Of this highly useful class of persons is Mr. Charles Gutzlaff, a native of Prussia, employed as a missiona y in the East, we belie...

THE VIEWS OF ENGLAND IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THESE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 March 1835

THE VIEWS OF ENGLAND JttTHEíESTABLlSHMENT OF THESE COLONIES; Whatever were the objects, that prompted England in the first establishment of Van Die men's Land, the leading ones now unquestionably are the punishment and reform of offenders-the extension of British commerce, and generally the enlargement of human happiness, by filling in obedience to the divine will, the yet comparatively uninhabited parts of the earth with a civilized, a virtuous, and a Christian people. While, there fore, the government throws no obstacle in the way of the Van Diemen's Land stock owner, it ought,, undoubtedly, at the same time, for the still stronger reasons we have mentioned, to fos- ter and promote the settlement of the small farmer-of the man who seeks a living in the fertility of the soil-in the industrious application of the plough and the spade. There is this differ- ence between an error of the people and an im- politic measure of the government, that the former being at all times subject to ...
