DEATH OF SIR WALTER SCOTT [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 April 1833
DEATH OF SIR WALTER SCOTT; Sir Walter Scott died at Abbotsford, &nbsp; jon Friday, September 21, aged sixty | one years. Thirty one years were devot . ed to the most triumphant but wearing literary labour, and at last his physical strength was exhausted by mental exer- tion. The last days of life were darkness ; and visited as he had been-death was hailed as the only source of relief. In this place, our duty is merely to note the fact of his translation from that sphere where- in his talents were honoured to that wherein his virtues will be rewarded. Atlas. Ile was bom on the 15th August, 17/1, and consequently died in his sixty second year ; he was the eldest son of Walter Scott, Esq., writer to the Signet in Edinburgh ; his mother was the daughter of David Rutherford, Esq., an able and popular practitioner of the same (the legal) profession. She was the au- thoress of some poems, and acquainted with Burns, Blacklock, and Allan Ram- say. It is not unreasonable to suppose th...

(Continued.) Under these circumstances, there can be no &nbsp; impropriety in appealing to the British Govern- &nbsp; ment. If the Houses of Parliament will not take &nbsp; any higher view of the subject, perhaps, they will be influenced by financial considerations. Every tribe of the natives that are instructed, will learn to work for their bread ; and will immediately re- quire clothing. The success of the missionary, &nbsp; &nbsp; therefore, will procure employment for the manu- &nbsp; facturers of the Mother Country ; and the farther he makes his way into the interior, the more hej &nbsp; will add to the wealth of the empire. If the abor- &nbsp; iginal inhabitants of Australia were consumers of the manufactures of the Mother Country—and &nbsp; consumers of her manufactures they certainly will become, when they receive a knowledge of christi- &nbsp; anity—she would be independent of the American and o...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 April 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The recent arrivals at this port, have brought us a supply for a short period, of every necessary article of consumption, and have reached us at a time, when the scarcity of the greatest part of the invest- ments, will, we anticipate, render the speculations productive of mutual advan- tage. As the winter is now rapidly drawing in upon us ; we regard these imports as a most seasonable supply, and we are relieved from any apprehensions of undergoing the same distressing priva- tions, which were generally experienced but patiently endured during the past year. The potatoes in particular have &nbsp; arrived most opportunely ; and we do hope, the fine condition they are landed in, (which makes them highly valuable to us for seed) will induce the Merchants to dispose of' them at such prices as will ensure a general sale ; —it would be pro- voking to see so valuable an acquisition to the Colony rotting on the beach to gratify the cupidity of individu...
REPORTED AFFRAY WITH THE NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 6 April 1833
REPORTED AFFRAY WITH THE NATIVES. On Tuesday last it was generally re- ported that an affray had taken place the &nbsp; day previously between the soldiers and &nbsp; the natives, near the flats, and it was &nbsp; confidently stated at Fremantle, that &nbsp; several of them were shot ; on enquiry, &nbsp; however, we find the statement to be in- correct, and the following are the simple facts : On Saturday last, Yagan taking ad- vantage of Mr. Watson's absence from home, he entered the house, and offered such violence as occasioned Mrs. Watsons hurrying in great agitation to the house of a neighbour for protection ; finding his intention defeated, he endeavoured to re- move her suspicions by calling her back and exclaiming " White Woman, very good !- good bye !"- but when he found his efforts unavailing, he made off in a different direction. The report of this occurrence reaching the ears of Capt. Ellis, the Superintend- ent of the native tribe...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 April 1833
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL The establishment of a Court of Civil Judicature in this Colony, was hailed with general satisfaction, but has tended to the diffusion of a spirit of litiga ti on amongst us, which it is painful to see ' growing with our growth.* The list, last court day, comprised 22 unimportant cases, and occupied the time, of our highly esteemed Commissioner of the Court, for two days. In so small a com- munity, it is a lasting reflection upon us ; and we do hope to see ' every man his own lawyer,' before long every man his own friend, if he is not disposed to regard the strict injunction laid down for his conduct towards his neighbour. The consideration of this subject leads us to reflect upon the want of unanimity and friendly feeling which ought to actuate us in our transactions with those, who ar- rive here, and who embark their capital in the same adventure with ourselves ; why not practice the disposition shewn in other colonies, to aid and assist the new come...
GRAND ENCOUNTER AT PRESTON POINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 13 April 1833
Grand Encounter at Preston Point. Mr. Weavell has kindly furnished us with the following particulars, of this reported landing (a refinement upon our general rumours) of 200 natives, and &nbsp; spearing Mrs. Weavell and himself, the &nbsp; former in six places, (nothing like being accurate,) and killing the latter on the spot. But to the facts, ' About 80 na- tives were crossed this morning (Friday) at my ferry ; they went to the point to fish, and prepare their repast ; their fire spread to a considerable extent, which in addition to a rumour conveyed to Fre- mantle that Mrs. W. and myself had been speared, brought nearly every male inha- bitant of Fremantle to my house, some with guns without locks, some with guns without ammunition, others with ammu- nition without guns, some with pistols, others with bludgeons; a fine scene ! ! never was such a corps paraided in Western Australia ; however, as so great an interest, was expressed, and such a disposition shown to r...

CIVIL COURT, PERTH, Before G. F. Moore, Esq.,. Civil Commissioner Anderson v. Hall.
