FROLICS & FESTIVITIES. FIRST OF JUNE—SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 May 1835

FROLICS & FESTIVITIES. FIRST OF JUNE--SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLONY. The ground has been prepared for the sports to come off on this occasion, and we are happy to find, that all classes are disposed either to join, or assist the amusements with a hearty will, to contribute to the general rejoicing   Old English sports will form the principal objects of entertainment. A wrestling match between the Cornish and Devonshire men, foot races, pony races, gingling, climbing a greased pole, hunting a pig with a greased tail, &c.,   &c., will afford sports for the distribution of prizes, which, by the funds collected, we are glad to find, will be made suitable to the exertions and merits of the   parties who may exhibit. Several tents will be erected, and the whole, it is expected, will present a scene equal, in   minature, to the most approved exhibitions of our native country.   O...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 May 1835

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette."   Sir,--As the organ through which all grievances and abuses can be made public, and the   willing feeling you have at all times shown to give such a report in your Journal, I feel no hesitation in troubling you with the following statement. In a recent case in the Civil Court in which I have been nominally plaintiff, but allowed by that Court a witness, I made a charge   of one guinea for my attendance, as also the same charge for the attendance of a respectable witness, whose evidence was considered requisite to support such action. Now I have no doubt you are aware, that in all actions, the correct expenses of   the parties attending the Court have been allowed by the Commissioner; but in the case alluded to,   to my surprise, my Agent informed me, that when he exhibited the bill of costs to the Registrar for taxation, he struck off these very just charges, the more worthy allow...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 May 1835

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom. Assault on an Aboriginal Native, committed by John Mackail, a carpenter, at Perth, on the   night of the 26th inst. Francis Armstrong, interpreter to the natives, being duly sworn, gave the following statement of Narral, a native, who was present:--       I (Narral), Goggalee (the person attacked), and Dower and Dutermerry, and two or three children, were sleeping, in a bush hut, near Ambrose's house, on the slope of Mount Eliza, between   Ambrose's and Mackail's. Mackail came up to us, and awoke Goggalee, and asked him why he (Goggalee) stole his flour? Goggalee said he had not stolen the flour, and did not know any thing about it. Mackail immediately presented a   gun at Goggalee's body, who seized the muzzle, and lowered it from his breast. He was lying on the ground when Mackail presented the gun, and Goggalee, as he lowered t...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 May 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 30, 1835. The late rains have assisted our agricultural friends on the Swan, and the ploughs are diligently employed. Happily we are well supplied with good seed   wheat: Many of the farmers have grain still to dispose of, which the absence of substantial mills has left on   their hands. This is an evil which, by the next season, we may reasonably expect, will be corrected.     The swamp-hens have again made their appearance on the Swan, and at this, the seed-time, are unwelcome visitors to the agriculturist, notwithstanding the fresh meal they contribute to.   The migratory visits of these birds is still a problem to be solved by the initiated, whose opinions and inquiries we are anxious to obtain. During the past season they did not visit us; their absence   some intelligent correspondent   will, we hope, account for. Their ravages are generally ...

LAND COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 30 May 1835

LAND COMPANY. From the papers placed in our hands, on this subject, we have selected the following, and we can truly recommend the information conveyed in this statement to the favorable consideration of     all parties interested in the speculation. That it would rapidly advance the prosperity of the Colony, and, if conducted   with judgment and good faith, would be   found profitable to those concerned in it, we are fully persuaded.   The proposal on the part of those who     are applying for information, is to purchase one million acres:--                 There are three plans, on either of which, it appears to me, such an Association might act with advantage. 1st,--The purchase, from the Crown, of a large extent of waste Land, in a favorable position as to the sea, rivers, soil, &amp...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN . JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JüfJJÍ 6, J 835. -noo Weights and Measures-The deficiency in the weights and measures of the Colony has for some time been felt as a grievous evil. The standard ;: weights have for some time been in readiness, and are deposited at the Commissariat office, we believe, in. the charge of E. Cameron. The public, un- conscious of the tenor of the act for the regulation of weights and measures, have neglected to pursue a remedy, which will at once check the pernicious practice. Let application be made to the keeper of standard weights and measures who is bound to produce the same to any person demanding an inspection thereof, at any reasonable hour or time, for the purpose of comparing the same with any other weights and measures ; and such keeper is entitled to demand a fee of sixpence for each and every weight and measure so compared. If the heads of families will take the trouble to compare their weights, and be particular in weighing the art...

What will the People in England say? [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

What will the People in England say ? This is an important question as to recent mea« sures here, inasmuch as we must abide by what answer the English nation give to the recent des- patch of her representative in China. This is a subject respecting which, it is pretty clear, no small quantity of nonsense will be talked, and to try and lessen that as much as possible, it is my object to point out what were the real sub- jects of difference betwixt Lord Napier and the local government. His Lordship's demand was to present a letter, being from him to Viceroy Loo, and to have it opened, expressing himself desirous to give His Excellency Loo every proper title, but distinctly stating that it was not a petition or sub- mission, but a letter on terms of equality. The officials at the city gate first proclaimed to Chinese and Europeans that the address on this letter did not contain his Excellency's right and respectful name ; this fudge lasted a day or two, when on the 11th of August we ha...

COLERIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

COLERIDGE. The following account of the late poet, one of that bright galaxy of literary characters, from which ** star after star decays" gradually around us, is evidently by a kindred spirit :-" We know no writer of modern times whom it would not he easier to characterize in one page than Coleridge in two. The volumes before us contain so many integral efforts of imagination, that a distinct notice of each is indispensable, if we would form a just confusion upon the powers of the man. Wordsworth, Scott, Moore, Byron, Southey, are incomparably more uniform in the direction of their poetic mind. But if you look over these volumes for indications of their author's poetic powers, you find him appearing in at least half a dozen shapes, so different from each other, that it is in vain to attempt to mass them together. It cannot, in- deed, be said that he has ever composed what is popularly termed a great poem ; but he is great in several lines, and the union of such powers is an essenti...

MAGNETIC POLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

MAGNETIC POLE. At a meeting of the Royal Society on Thursday, a memoir was read from Captain Ross of the dis- covery of the North Magnetic Pole. He began by stating the importance attached to the solution of this difficult problem, assigning as the chief impe- diment to its investigation hitherto, the unequal distribution of magnetic influence, and the difficulty of approaching the magnetic loci. Great advances, however, had been made ; Professor Faraday all but demonstrated the identity of magnetism and electricity ; the observations of Sabine, Franklin, Parry, Foster, &c, had shown in what direction the point of magnetic concentricity was to be sought. Before leaving England Captain Ross had obtained from the Admiralty a dipping needle, constructed by Jones, whose accuracy had been tested in previous expeditions. From some defect in the vertical circle, the observations made prior to 1831, are not perfect, but that defect was remedied when discovered. The table of observa-...

NEWS FROM CHINA. Canton, Oct. 13, 1834. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

NEWS FROM CHINA. Canton, Oct. 13, 1834. Died at Macao at hálf-past ten o'clock on the night of Saturday, the llth of October, the Right Honorable William John Lord. Napier, of Mer- chison, a Baronet of Nova Scotia, Captain R. N., and his BjitannicJMajesty's Chief Superintendent in China, His Lordship expired of a lingering illness brought on by the arduous performance of his duties at Canton, aggravated by the treatment received from the Chinese Government when on his passage, in a sick state, to Macao. His Lordship was born on the 13th of October, 1786, and would this day have completed his forty-eight year. We cannot trust ourselves at this moment with the expression of our feelings on the truly mourn- ful and distressing event announced in the annexed reprint of the Canton Register Extraordinary of yesterday-than which nothing could have given a greater shock to the sensibilities of the foreign community of Canton. Immediately oii receiving the sad news several British subjects p...
