CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. SHEEP. The following letter was addressed to Messrs Dickson, Burnies, & Co., of the Cape of Good Hope, to whom a quantity of Sheep were con- signed : Sydney, N. 8. Wales, Nov 4, 1834. Messrs. Dickson, Burnies, & Co., Cape of Good Hope. Gentlemen,-I have had the pleasure to sell to my i espectable friends, Messrs. Aspinall, Browne, & Co., of this place, 50 first-class Saxon Ewes, now about 13 months old. 50 ditto Rams, of same age. These Sheep were this morning shipped on I board the Swallow, Capt. Neilson, with their wool on and hi. good condition, and I sincerely trust they will'arrive at their destination in the sarre perfect state.

FROLICS & FESTIVITIES. FIRST OF JUNE—SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

FROLICS & FESTIVITIES, FIRST OF JUNE-SIXTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COLONY. The sports we alluded to last week, to take place on this occasion, came off, we are happy to say, to the amusement and satisfaction of all parties. The feats of skill were commenced by the intro- duction of a party of natives, who suc- cessively, but we cannot add very successfully, exhibited their prowess in the use of their formidable weapons. Two loaves were stuck up on a spear, at a distance of forty yards, (the distance was afterwards reduced to thirty yards,) but in both instances they failed in strik- ing either of the loaves ; several loaves were, however, distributed amongst them. The Governor and Lady Stirling during this exhibition, came upon the ground, and shortly after its termination, a small pig was turned into a ring, formed by the party assembled, when the natives endeavoured to catch it by the tail. They hunted it for some time, but failed in taking it fairly; they ...

DEATH OF GOGGALEE, A NATIVE, SHOT BY JOHN MACKAIL, A CARPENTER, AT PERTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 June 1835

DEATH OF GOGGALEE, A NATIVE, SHOT BY JOHN MACKAIL, A CARPENTER, AT PERTH. The Native Goggalee, a lad about 17 years of age, who was attacked at night by John Mackail, whilst sleeping in a bush hut with several of his young companions, died at the Institution-house on   Sunday morning last. The particulars of the at- tack we gave last week, in our report of the ex- amination which took place before the Magistrates,   and we most seriously lament that it has had so   fatal a termination, as we cannot divest ourselves   of the opinion, that some innocent party will suffer   for the rash and imprudent act of Mackail.   The offender is confined in the Fremantle Jail ; hut such is the desire of the Natives to be assured that he is in safe custody, that repeated visits have been made to Fremantle by different parties, who   have returned to their tribes with the satisfactory intelligence of his secur...

EXTRACT FROM THE COMMITTEE ON LAW OF LIBEL. Minutes of Evidence taken before the Select Committee. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 June 1835

EXTRACT FROM THE COMMITTEE ON LAW OF LIBEL. Mundes of Evidence taken he/ore ¿he Select Committee. The Right Hon. Lord High Chancellor mad« the following statement : Your Lordship is aware of a distinction some- times drawn between incitements to general re- sistance to Government and incitements to resist the laws in detail. To a particular breach of the peace ? I am aware of the distinction ; I should say there is no danger whatever from libels which consist only in strong and violent, and, if you will, harsh, vituperate, and unfair observations against the Government 1 think no people in the world was ever excited to disturb the Government, or to join in revolution or insurrection, merely by writ- ings in newspapers or pamphlets which stated that there were grievances, that there were abuses, and used inflammatory language, inciting the people to throw off the yoke which perpetuated those abuses If the people do not feel aggrieved, if there is no truth in the representations» made...

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. DEPARTURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 June 1835

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. DEPARTURE. On the 11th instant, the brig Dart, Captain Griffin, for Sydney.-Passengers : Mr. Sheldon, and Mr. Walford. On the same day, the Jolly Rambler, for Sydney. On the 12th, the Patriot, Captain Eastmure, for King George's Sound and Sydney.-Passengers for K. G.'s Sound, Mr. and Mrs. Morley. Lying in Cockburn Sound.-The Monkey. During the heavy north-west gale, which sub- sided on Wednesday last, it is reported to us, that the Patriot drifted nearly half a mile Irom her moorings, and the Jolly Rambler, it was fully ex- pected, would have b een driven on shore ; both vessels, however, escaped without any accident. It i» said these vessels were indifferently found-a cir- cumstance which appears to be borne out by the fact, that the Dart retained her position through- out the gale.

WEIGHT & MEASURE. Whether Weight or Measure is the truest in itself, being used by an honest person, and in the best way. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 June 1835

WEIGHT & MEASURE. Wliether Weight or Measure is the truest in itself, being used by an honest person, and in the best way. It has been said, that if a bushel be put on the ground, and a sieve be put over it, and the corn be poured through the sieve till the bushel be fidl, the operation might be performed with so much exactness and so much facility, that a child might measure. This, however, has never been done to any extent, and it would add much to trouble ; in- deed it would appear from the evidence of Mr. Palmer, Mr. Dudm, and Mr. Page, that as regards the measuring in the port of London, the opera- tion is performed with a remarkable degree of exactness. in the evidence of Mr. Dudin will be found a statement of the weights of so' many sacks of oats, each containing four bushels. This statement shows that the greatest variation in the weight of those sacks was two pounds, being half a pound per bushel. This document may probably serve as a test of the accuracy of weight ...

COLONIAL NOTES. The following Circular has been lately addressed jto most of the principal settlers in the Colony by Mr, Lamb, a merchant, of Fremantle : Sit",-I beg leave to acquaint you, that, in con- sequence of the great want of money in this Colony at the present time, and the total im- possibility of obtaining cash for bills on England, however geBiuine ; I have been solicited by some parties, and have resolved (having placed in trust ample security to the holders of the same) to issue my Notes to ihe amount of d£500.

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 June 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 13, 1835. Another attempt has been made by the natives to spear persons passing along the York road. It appears that Mr A. Trimmer, on his way to York, met with an accident (his cart broke down), and he was compelled to go on for assistance. On his return, accom- panied by Mr. Bland, when about seven miles from their home, they observed a native in the bush in the act of raising his spear, and shortly afterwards, a known signal being given, a party of about twelve rushed forward from the place of their concealment ; but both Mr. Trimmer and Mr. Bland being ap- prised of their danger by the signal given, put spurs to their horses, and gallopped a distance of about three miles, by which means they avoided their hostile assailants. They attribute their safety, as we are informed, entirely to the circumstance of their being well mount- ed. Being unarmed, they were obliged to seek safety in flight. The natives, evidently emboldened by the re...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 June 1835

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of ««? The Perth Gazette:' Si a,-At this period, when so much interest is evinced towards the removal of Sheep over the Hills, where we (the ¡Settlers of the Swan) hope to establish those prospects that have induced the embarkation of so much capital, I fee! assured that you will (witli your usual good feeling towards the welfare of the Colony) have pleasure in inserting the following account in your valuable columns : On the the 25th May the party left Guildford, with a flock of 110 sheep, and 58 lambs, and arrived at Addington May 30th, with 109 sheep, and 52 lambs, having lost only 1 sheep and 6 lambs. The lambs generally were very weak previous to leaving Guildford. Bleeding and the use of turpentine (Mr. Harris's remedy) is good ; but the quantity necessary to be taken was much greater than named by that gentleman ; at the same time, it would be well to remark, that it en tirely depends upon the strength of the Sheep. This is the third adventure of...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1835. Just as we were going to press, we received the announcement of the arrival, of. tim Caledonia from. Hobart Town and King George's Sound. Wc have not received our file . of the Hobart Town Journals. The Sir John Reid, with sixty tons of stores for Government, may be expected daily, the Ellen (government schooner) having been condemned. Again we are threatened with a scarcity of flour, in this, our winter season, notwithstanding there is a good supply of wheat in the colony. The present price is 5Jd. per lb., and an ad- vance is daily expected, Wheat is sell- ing, at Perth, at 16s. per bushel. The disparity between the price of wheat and flour, shows that the latter article is advanced by the difficulty the public ex- perience in getting their wheat ground. Seeing, as we have done this week, a mill submitted to the hammer under an execution, which was erected with special privileges, from the government, for the ultimate benefi...

A few minutes afterwards I called out from my door, and said, " Thompson, are you over?1' He answered "Yes, I'm in the middle;" and 1 heard the noise of the oar. About one minute afterwards he called out, " the boat is sinking." I immediately called out, " hold fast the boat till I can get assi...

CONTINENTAL WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 June 1835

CONTINENTAL WHEAT. The highest quotation of white wheat of the first quality at Hamburgh is 85 rixdollars current . the last, which answers to 27s. 5d. the English quarter of eight bushels imperial measure ; and the highest quotation of red wheat of the first quality ia 80 rixdollars current the last, which answers to 253. lOd. the quarter, and therefore the mean price at Hamburgh of white and red wheat toge- ther is 26s. 8d. the quarter. The highest quota- tion of white wheat in Mark-lane is 56s,. the quarter, and the highest quotation of red wheat is 48s. the quarter, and therefore the mean price in Mark-lane of white and red wheat together is 52s the quarter. It appears, therefore, that wheat is 95 per cent, dearer in London than at Hamburgh, and that with the sum of 21 12s. a man may buy 15 bushels of wheat at Hamburgh, whereas with the same sum he can only buy 8 bushels in Lon- don. The highest quotation of Zealand white wheat of the first quality at Amsterdam is 180 florins th...

CIVIL COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esquire, Commissioner. TUESDAY, JUNE 9TH, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 June 1835

CIVIL COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esquire, Commissioner. Tuesday, June 9th, 1835. Walford v. Dod.-It appeared that at the last court day the present plaintiff was defendant, in an action in which James Knight was plaintiff, and claimed, as part of his defence, a set-off for certain money (261. 10s.) alleged to have been received by the said James Knight from the present de- fendant, Dod, on account of the present plaintiff's principals. Dod was on that occasion brought forward as a witness to prove the payment of the said money to the said James Knight ; but it ap- peared, from his evidence, that no portion of that money had in reality been paid to Knight, Dod at the same time admitting that he had bought goods from Knight to that amount. Mr. Knight then admitted (as he had previously done in an account stated between himself and plaintiff) that the goods so sold to Dod were goods belonging to plaintiff's principals, (for whom Knight also then acted as "agent,) and gave, in open Cou...
