EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (From the Journal of G. F. Moore, Esquire.) [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 May 1835

EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD.     (From the Journal of G. F. Moore, Esquire.)   [continued.]   On the next morning, after crossing the stream with some difficulty, we diverged to the north- westward, in hopes of falling in with the natives; and in this course we saw a wide extent of low, level plains, having excellent pasture in some places, at present, but evidently subject to flood, or covered with water, during the rainy season. A few miles in this direction brought us to a fresh water lake, called " Bambonup," perhaps one and a half miles long, and three-quarters of a mile in breadth, having a broad belt of bulrushes round its margin.. On this there were many swans and ducks, but quite out of our reach, on account of these bulrushes. The soil where we touched upon this lake, was sandy, but producing tufts of rich grass, and other vegetation in abundance ; and as we proceeded to the north, we came upon plains having plentiful herb...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 2, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 2 May 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 2, 1835. The Quarterly Meeting of the mem- bers of the Agricultural Society took place yesterday ; but as there was no business of importance before the Meet- ing, it was thinly attended. The prin- cipal topic proposed for discussion, was, that a letter be addressed, by the Secre- tary of the Society, to His his Excellency the Governor, suggesting a reduction in the scale of the ferry tolls at Guildford. Allusion was made to the practice, which has for some time prevailed with certain individuals, of instructing the natives in the use of firearms ; and it was the opinion of some of the members, that the government should be solicited to interfere, for the purpose of putting a stop to it. This course, after some dis- cussion, was abandoned, in the hope that the practice would not be continued, so soon as it should be made known that a general opinion obtained against it. Captain Beete, and Mr. L. Samson, were nominated to be elected membe...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

ENGLAND. Law Changes.-The Court of Common Pleas will be immediately opened to the bar, as it has already been to the attornies. This arrangement, will be even more advantageous to the public than, to the legal profession The present system has. been long and justly the subject of complaint, and it has caused the business to yo into other courts where the same restrictions did not prevail. Mo- nopolies are bad in all trades, but a monopoly which forces a plaintiff or a defendant to employ, a dull man with a black patch on his wig, when he might for the same sum have a brilliant advocate without a patch, is a barbarism which no country, but England could have endured up to the present day.- Times.

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-In the first part of my letter, in your paper of the 26th ultimo, there are a few typogra- phical errors, some of which it may be well to correct. First, in justice to one of our faithful guides, his name should be printed " Béguin," and not " Begrum." Lower down, the words ** we think we had been traversing " should be " hither- to we had been &c." The name of the district of the running streams is not " Wayh," but "Waylo," -a name of frequent reference, which seems to indicate its position " to the north," as at King George's Sound the 4* Will tribe " occupy ground in the same relative direction from the settlement.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. SHEEP. Several investments of fine Woolled Shoop htivo lately arrived in Table Bay, one belonging to Messrs. Venning, Robertson, & Co., from Ger- many, a second from New South Wales by the Swallow, Capt. Nelson, and the third and largest to the Hon. J. B. Ebden, also from New South Wales The whole of these animals have been carefully selected, by the best judges, from the finest flocks in the respective countries from which they carrie, and had they arrived at any other period than the present, would no doubt have met with a ready and encouraging sale. But the state of excitement and uncertainty into which the unhappy disturbances on the Eastern Frontier have thrown the whole Colo- ny, will probably suspend the demand for a bhort time. We say ybr a short time, for though much pro- perty must have- been destroyed in Albany and Somerset, we feel assured that the losses sustained by the Inhabitants will be amply made up to them, both directly and indirectly, ...

INCURSION OF THE CAFFERS. December 21st, 1834 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

INCURSION OF THE CAFFERS. December 21 sí, 1834 It is impossible accurately to describe the state of alarm into which Graham's Town and neighbourhood has been thrown during the past week, by the audacious and menacing conduct of the Caffers. In order, however, that our readers may understand something of the affair, we must recur back to the fracas adverted to in our last week's paper. It appears that this arose out of an indulgence which had been granted to the Caffers, to re-occupy temporarily the ceded country. Some horses had been stolen, and hav- ing been traced by Lieut. Sutton to a kraal situated there, he seized a number of cattle by way of restitution, with which he was returning towards his post The Caffers, however, collected in con- siderable force, and showed every disposition to disjute his progress. Finding himself greatly pressed, this officer collected his little force, and defended himself with great judgment and gallantry, in the course of which, it is said, severa...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

VAN DIEMENS LAND. We have over and over again shewn that one certain effect of the total inability of the Colony to supply itself with food, while its attention is wholly turned to the growth of wool, will be, that the course of exchange will be such as to cause every ounce of metallic money, no matter of what coinage, to ' disappear. The experience of every day proves the accuracy of this anticipation, and it will soon become a question of no inconsidei able importance, whether the total absence of agricul- ture, consequent upon the large profits made by the few, by the culture of wool, will not as respects the many, infinitely over-balance the good which arises from that profitable production. We are now altogether dependant upon the foreigner for food. This present week, the Friend- ship imported a quantity of bullocks from New" South Wales, weighing from 6 to 800 lbs each, purchased there for about three pounds, purchased here by Mr. Baynton, at a liberal profit to the carrier, ...

Head Quarters, Graham's Town, Feb. 16, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

Head Quarters, Grahams Town, Feb. 16,1835. With reference to the Notice of the 13th inst., the Governor and Commander-in-Chief has the satisfaction to announce, that the continued opera- tions of Colonel Smith have since been crowned with complete success. On the night ,of the 14th and in the course of the 15th instant, the Caffer tribes of Eno, Botnia, Dushanie, and some of that of Macomo, weie ex- pelled from the remaining fastnesses into which they bad retired on the evening of the 12th, and driven altogether over the Keiskama. , Their aggregate loss in killed and wounded has been very great. Ours has amounted in the whole of these operations to twelve killed, and eleven wounded. The cattle which have fallen into our' hands since the 12th, amounts to about 4,000 head, with large quantities of sheep and goats, and some horses. Colonel Smith, who has conducted this necessary and important enterprise with consummate ability, vigour, and resolution, praises all the officers and troop...

MEETING OF THE FRONTIER AGRICULTURISTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

MEETING OF THE FRONTIER AGRICULTURISTS. On Tuesday, a very respectable and numerous meeting was held at Graham's Town, of persons connected with the Agriculture of this Frontier, to consider what steps it would be advisable to take under their present calamitous circumstances. Mr. Simon Biddulph, of Bathurst, having been called to the Chair, made some observations in- troductory to the business of the meeting, after which the following resolutions were unanimously passed : 1. Resolved,-That ever, since the arrival of the Settlers in 1819, the Caffers have been en- gaged in predatory incursions of greater or less extent in the Frontier Districts,-harassing the Farmers, and despoiling them at different times of portions of their property, and that they have now murdered many of the inhabitants-burned their houses very generally-swept off the cattle and other stock and have in fact reduced nearly the whole of the Frontier population to a state of utter destitution. 2. Resolved,-That th...

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. (From the "Times," Nov. 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

LATEST EUROPEAN NEWS. (From the "Times,*' Nov. 22.) His Majesty in Council was this day pleased to deliver the Great Seal to the Right Hon. John Lord Lyndhurst, whereupon the oath of Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain was, by his Majesty's command, administered to him, and his Lordship took his place at the Board accord inglv. It will be seen that Lord Brougham yesterday took leave of the Court of Chancery, and in a speech which was distinguished both by good taste and brevity. His Lordship is now no longer a Cabinet Minister nor a Judge. His field of action is narrowed within the boundaries of private life. The opportuni ies for official indis- cretion, and for the abuse of an elevated position, are no longer open to him as they have been for some years past, and with them departs every dis- position on our part to make him or his eccentrici- ties the subject of angry observation Should, however, that overweening activity of mind, which has so frequently show n itself in reckles...

EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (From the Journal of G. F. Moore, Esquire.) [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (From the Journal of G. F. Moore, Esquire.) [continued.]   I wish to say a few words on the subject of stray cattle. We had hoped to discover some in our course, but were disappointed ; although the natives had seen one cow a few days before in the neighbourhood of the running streams above al- luded to. It was on the southern or left bank of the river here called " Moondap and Morobah," that when on an expedition with Mr. Dale, in 1831, we saw the traces of cattle going up the course of the stream eastward, among the hills ; and on the same expedition, about twenty-five miles further to the east, and much about the same parallel, we saw a pass where apparently a large number of   cattle had crossed a fine valley with running water, and proceeded eastward ; their instinct probably impelling them to seek for some district which should satisfy them as a permanent resting place, where they might remain undisturbed by their former ow...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 9 May 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 9, 1835. By the Dublin Packet we have intelligence from England up to the 22d Nov., and from the Cape of Good Hope to the 28th February. We have   given some few extracts from the Cape Advertiser, (having by this opportunity received our file complete,) and purpose continuing them, in elu- cidation cf the position of affairs with the Caffers. Intelligence reached Perth yesterday evening, that two men, employed by Mr. Harris to drive a flock of sheep to the York district, on their return,   were speared at the half-way house by a party of Natives It appears they reached the half-way house on Tuesday last, and the attack was made upon them in the afternoon. They were unable to move until the following day, from the effects of the wounds they received — and then made an ef- fort to return to York. After walking a few miles, they sunk exhausted on the road ; in which state, on Thursday morning, Mr. Harris picked the...
