MILLERS COMPELLED TO GRIND FOR THE PUBLIC. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 June 1835
MILLERS COMPELLED TO GRIND FOR THE PUBLIC. In several of the Arrerican States it appears a law exists compelling millers to grind all grain brought .to them for that purpose. In one of these, a miller to whom some grain was brought to be ground for the purpose of distillation, though it involved a breach of human law, refused to do so. for he considered it would be contrary to the principle he had adopted as a member of a Temperance Society. The owner of the grain, however, persisted, and the miller was in conse- quence prosecuted and fined for the refusal. Upon this he applied to the legislature, and at the very next assembly an act was passed as follows, viz. : -"It is hereby enacted, that an act entitled-'an act relating to mills and millers, shall not be so construed as to make any owner or occupier of any mill liable to the penalty therein named, who shall neglect or refuse to grind any grain brought to such mill to be ground for the avowed or apparent purpose of manufacturing ...
ORIGINAL POETRY. "AN AWAKENING." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 June 1835
ORIGINAL POETRY. "AN AWAKENING." Spiäit of better days, Am I forsaken 1 Muse of my former lays, When wilt thou waken ? Bouse up thy torpid eense, Dally no longer ; Think that this indolenee Daily grows stronger. Where hast thou fled to, thou, My guardian angel ? Why dost thou leave me now, Pray, to this strange ill ? Oft in the darker hour Thy tuneful numbers Seemed to possess a power Over these slumbers. Spirit of better days, Do thou recal me ? Let not these evil ways Longer enthral me. Wake, my soul ! wake and see Foes are around thee ; Shake off this lethargy (Spell that bath bound thee.) Oh, it is sad to see Hours worse than wasted Dash down the cup from tbee, Sweet though it tasted. Wake, my soul ! Oh, my soul, What has come o'er thee ? Quickly the moments roll Fleeting before thee. Think how time hurries on ; How life is waning ; How many years are gone ; How few remaining. Is it a noonday rest Thou art enjoying, Life's dearest, freshest, best Moments destroying ? What right ...
MANNERS IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 June 1835
MANNERS IN AMERICA. Among the new works descriptive of the United States of America, is one just published at New-York, entitled Travels in America, by G. Fihbleton, Esq., ex barber to his Majesty the King of England. We make the following ex- tract, which will amuse the reader, not too delicate in his taste for literary description : ?'The city of New-York, which is a place of borne litt e comrreree, is situated at the mouth of the Hudson's Bay River-sometimes called the North River. The population consists of Dutch, Yankees, Niggers and Indians, The latter, who emigrated to this place, partly from the East and partly from the West Indies, gencially go armed with tomahawks, and get their Uving by plunder- ing the blacks and whites. The police have made some forcible attempts to put them down ; and a severe battle was fought, while 1 was there, be tween the Indians, wider the command of the ¡famous chief Black Hawk; and the whites and niggers, under the command of Old Hayes, as the ...
NEWSPAPER REPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 June 1835
NEWSPAPER REPORTING. That part of newspapers which may be strictly termed the fourth estate of ihe realm, and which directs, and eventually governs king, lords, and commons, ia nothing more than the branch com- posed of reports. Reporting forms the mirror which reflects the thoughts and actions of men in \ all their infinite varieties of good and evil, of great- ness and degeneracy. It illustrates practically the working of every Institution, and the effects of every doctrine, study, and speculative opinion. It is a perpetual stimulant to improvement in every j function of the intellect, and engenders from ex- periment and illustration a public opinion and a i fixed resolve, by which king, lords, and commons guide their deliberations and fix their conduct. The utility of reporting is as incalculable as its effects are universal ; and perhaps that which is deemed the most humble oí its class, is the most useful. The police report is the poor man's law book, and but too often his only...
TRIAL BY JURY. (From "Hood's Comic Annual.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 June 1835
TRIAL BY JURY. (From "Hood's Comic Annual./ One day or night, no matter where or when,* Sly Reynard, like a foot-pad, laid his pad Right on the body of a speckled hen, Determined upon taking all she had ;" And, like a very bibber at his bottle, Began to draw the claret from her throttle ;" Of course it put her in a pretty pucker, And with a scream as high As she could cry, She call'd for help-she had enough of sucker, Dame Partlet's scream Waked luckily the house-dog from his dream, And, with a savage growl In answer to the fowl, He bounded forth against the prowling sinner, And, uninvited, came to the Fox's dinner. Sly Reynard, heedful of the coming doom, Thought, self-deceived, He should not be perceived, Hiding his brush within a neighbouring broom ; But quite unconscious of a Poacher's snare, And caught in copper noose, And looking like a goose, Found that his fate had ' hung up a hare ;' His tricks and turns were render'd of no use to* him, And w orst of all he saw old surly Tr...

EXTRACTS. CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 June 1835
EX TRACTS C H INA. The central part of China is very fertile, being a continuous plain of a black, loamy soil, well ir- rigated by numerous ditches and canals. The population is immense ; and if we ought to judge from the numerous children which we saw, it is on the increase. Shang-hae is the greatest emporium ot the empire. We found there more than a thousand junks moored opposite the city, and others were arriving whenever the weather per- mitted. We may call it the gate of central Asia, and especially of the central provinces of China Until you come to the high lands which form the harbour of this city, the whole coast from ^he Yellow River is very flat, and is scarcely visible even with the ship close in to the land. The sea is receding everywhere from the laivi, so that the flats formed along the shore, which are dry at low water, constitute a barrier to the whole coast, and are gradually becoming arable soil. We tried to reach the shore a few miles north of the Ch^-poo, but ev...

The Sir David Ogilby, we perceive, by the shipping list copied into the Hobart Town Courier of the 24th of April, derived from the Hersey, which left the Cape on the 19th of Feb., is laid on, in London, for this port. She may be expected to arrive in the course of two months. The George the Fourth, Capt. Moxey, struck on a sunken rock at the mouth of the Dervent, and in a few minutes was a total wreck, with a loss of 134 souls out of 294. No blame appears to at- tach to the Capt. of the vessel : she was sailing at the rate of two knots an hour, at night, when the accident happened. gi The Sir John Rae Re...
