THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

. , THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 16, 1835. -000 Our intelligence received per Dublin Packet from the Mother Country, is very limited ; indeed a less interesting arrival has not visited our shores since the establishment of the Colony. Not a single passenger !-We by no means regret this occurrence, as, unless our numbers are augmented by an accession of persons of capital, who can in- crease our flocks, and keep pace with the active enterprise of our Agricultural Settlers, the less we are burthened with ship loads of needy adventur- ers and the better. But still it is important to us; to look at the cause of the check of Emigration to this Colony, and we are disposed to think we find it in the works which have been published at the instigation of the projectors of the Southern Aus- tralian Settlement, all of which are replete with ignorant and false statements respecting us. And not alone in these works are we traduced, but a general misconception of our position, an...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the "S. A. Commercial Advertiser.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the " S. A. Commercial Advertiser"} We give below some extracts from the Adver- tiser of last year, containing a rough sketch of a 4 System of Intercourse with the Gaffers,' which appeared to us at the time likely to establish and secure the peace of the Fiontier in that quarter. What we chiefly relied upon was the observance of strict Justice towards the Chiefs and Tribes, individually, and the establishment of a system of constant communication with each of the Chiefs, through a proper Agent or Consul. That the present system does not protect the Frontier Colonists, is proved by the history of the last forty years. At very short intervals during the whole of that time we find the Colonists on the Borders suffering tremendous losses from inroads of the enemy, similar to that which now occupies a 1 our thoughts. The longest period of com pa rative tranquillity is that which has just elapsed, no irruption in such numbers having occurred since Feb. 1819-an int...

LOSS OF SHEEP AND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

LOSS OF SHEEP AND CATTLE. The loss sustained by Mr. Harris while driving Iii» flock to the York District, ib now ascertained to be to the following serious extent,-namely, 93 Sheep, 13 Goats, and 2 bullocks. The cause of the disorder is explained in the following com- munication, which Mr. Harris has obligingly favored us with ; and we have reason to congratu- late ourselves, as a garbled report of such a circumstance promulgated abroad is calculated to be highly prejudicial to the Colony, that a Gen- tleman of Mr. ti arris.'s experience and medical knowledge, was preaent when the calamitous symptoms presented themselves. His medicinal remedy, it will be seen, he was deprived of by an untoward accident. A flock belonging to the Hon. G. F. Moore, Esq., was driven over at the same time,-indeed passed that of Mr. Harris, without any loss, farther than might have been reasonably expected at starting,-namely,, six weak and sickly Ewes ; and several other flocks that of Mr. Brockman, Mr. ...

THE WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

THE WOOL TRADE. Some interest is manifested among those con- nected with the trade in wool relative to the sales of Colonial and other wools new in progress. 1 he sales commenced on Wednesday, at Garraway'» Coffee house, were continued on Thursday, and carried on the remainder of the week. There were a great many buyers from Leeds, Bradford, York, &c, among those present at the sale ; and although the scarcity of money is still felt in the country, a desire to purchase wjs evinced. The amount of wools announced for the first sale was nearly 4,800 bales, of which about half are Colo- nial produce, from Van Diernen's Land and Aus- tralia, the remainder were Portuguese, Spanish, German, Swan River, and other wools The first sale of the series comprised 700 bales, of which 527 were Colonial, 103 Tuscany, 50 East India, and 30 bales of Turkey and German wools. The Colonial wools attracted principal at- tention ; but, through the quality being inferior, not much activity was displ...

TWO MEN SPEARED BY NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

TWO MEN SPEARED BY NATIVES. We hinted at this occurrence, at the half-way house, last week, and have since obtained the following particulars, collected from a statement given to Mr Norcott, the Superintendent of Native Tribes, by the two men who were speared, James Twine, and George Morphy : It appears the men were servants to Mr. Harris, who had engaged them in assisting to drive his flock of sheep to York. One of the bullocks hav- ing knocked up a short distance from the half- way house, these men (Twine and Morphy) were instructed to go back, and to use every effort to recover it ; which they did without avail, and then proceeded to the half-way house, to await the return of Mr. Harris from York. About twelve o'clock on Tuesday, the 5th inst., a native came to the gate and called to them, when Twine went out and entered into conversation with him, and was soon followed by Morphy. A native, who had been standing at a distance, then came up, and they both became very importunate f...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 16 May 1835

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir, — The appointment of Mr. Armstrong as Interpreter between the Natives and the Settlers may, by strict attention to the rules laid down, be attended with considerable benefit ; but allow me to suggest another important improvement to the office — that of his acting as " Fashioner to the Tribe," and not permitting the Ladies or Gentle- men under his control to visit the towns without the additional garb of a kelt. It is even at Sydney thought but discreet, and acted upon with success ; and the plan could readilybhe acted upon here.   For the sake of common decency and morality, I trust we may no longer witness the disgusting ex- posures daily made in our streets. If the Ladies have not thrown off all sense of shame, let them now step forward and issue a supply of garments for their own sex, our Interpreter making known the wants of the other portion to the proper quarter.

SPECULATIONS ON THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 23 May 1835

SPECULATIONS ON THE PRESENT SYS- TEM OF COLONIZATION.   We had purposed nothing this subject at length, in order to satisfy the author of England and America, that his reasoning and information respecting this Colony, are falacious; for the present, however, we must content ourselves with offering, for the amusement of our Readers, the following extract from that work, premising that the whole shall form a subject, at an early period, of general remarks. "The last colony founded by Englishmen, has   severely felt the want of slavery. On the west coast of New Holland, there is abundance of good land, and of land, too, cleared and drained by nature. Those who have left England to settle there, carried out, amongst them, more than enough capital to employ such of them as were of the laboring class. The capital taken out, in seeds, implements, cattle, sheep, and horses, cannot have been less in money value than 200,000l.; and the   laborers must ha...

The plaintiff's case was as follows, corroborated by the evidence of Mr, W Samson and Mr. Clark. It appeared that in 1832, plaintiff imported a large quantity of merchandize, and placed the same in the hands of Mr. W. Samson for sale, who accordingly sold, by auction, a large portion, to the amount of 980/., and upwards. Mr. Marrs placed the unsold remainder of his goods in the hands of the defendant, as agent, for the sale of them. On the 31st Dec. in that year (1832), plaintiff gave his present agent, Mr. Clark, a power of attorney to collect all his outstanding debts ; among the rest, the proceeds of the sales by auction in Mr. Samson's hands. Mr. Clark accordingly waited on Mr. Samson the same day, for those proceeds, which he found Mr Samson in the act of paying to the defendant, who refused to hand trvem over to Mr. Clark, on the ground ...

About two o'clock I was tak- ing my dinner, and Mr. Guein came to me, and told me that Mrs Smith was dead I returned with Mrs. Guerin to the house where Mary Smith lay ; I saw her lying on a bed, apparently dying : she breathed very hard.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir, — I beg to inform you, I have just returned from an Excursion from the head of the Swan to   Mr. Brockman's grant, over the Hills, made under the following circumstances : — Some time since, the Natives have been in the habit of shewing me that the black man's road to the white man's fire, over the Hills, lay in an easterly direction from our house ; it was a little way off, and no hills but those we could see, — and wished to shew it to me ; but it was not until the late fatality among the stock going over the Hills, that I determined to go with them, and ascertain whether their account was a true one. Consequent- ly I engaged two of them as guides. We pro-   ceeded on our route, the first range oí hills being the only one worth mentioning, and, indeed, the only rough ground, and that not such as to im- pede the progress of a waggon or cart, with only ordinary management; after getting over a shar...
