HOUSE OF LORDS. KING'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 July 1835

HOUSE OF LORDS. KINGS SPEECH. At twelve o'clock ladies began to arrive, and before two they had completely filled the side galleries, as also more than half the body of the House. Ten Judges were present, and a larger assemblage of the diplomatic corps than we ever before witnessed on similar occasions, the number being nearly thirty. At two o'clock the guns were heard announcing his Majesty's departure from the Palace, and shortly afterwards the trumpets (never heard in the old House) announced the King's arrival. The Commons having been summoned, his Majesty delivered the following speech in a firm tone of voice : ** My Ijords and Gentlemen, " I avail myself of the earliest opportunity of meeting you in Parliament, after having recurred to the sense of my people. " You will, 1 am confident, fully participate in the regret which 1 feel at the destruction by acci- dental fire of that part of the ancient Palace of Westminster which has been long appropriated to the use of the two Hou...

A NATIVE PRISONER. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 July 1835

A NATIVE PRISONER. The following examination took place at Perth on the 3d July last, before G. F. Moore, Esq., J.P. The native, it will be remembered, was seized at York, by Mr. Norcott, Superintendent of Police, was brought down to Perth, and confined in the Jail, under a charge of having speared George Morphy :— James Twine, being duly sworn, deposed :— About 12 o'clock on the 3d May in this present year, I and George Morphy, the deceased, were at the half-way house, between this and York. One native came to the outer gate and called out to us. Morphy was outside, and went up to the native ;— he asked for bread, or very good. We told him we had not any. This native then asked if there were any others in the house, as well as I could understand him ; we told him there were not any more. I asked the native if he was a Guildford native, and he said he was. I asked him where he was going; he said, York—Mr. Bland's,—he made use of the words York and Mr. Bland's. He then made signs, wh...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 July 1835

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Si r,-I regret to observe, by a paragraph in your last number of the Gazette, the defects alleged to exist in the arrangement of the Justice Room at Fremantle are erroneously imputed to the Sheriff. I hasten to assure you that that Gentle- man is not, in the least degree, chargeable with any actual or supposed defect either in the original plan for fitting up the Justice Room (which must fall upon myself and three brother Magistrates) or in the execution of that plan. I am, Sir, Your most obedient Servant, W. H. MACKIE, Chairman Court of Quarter Sessioîis. Perth, July 6. [The truth of our statement, it will be observed, is not denied ; our conclusion, therefore, that the blame was to be imputed to the Sheriff, whose duty we believed it tobe to attend to tliosS matters, was just and reasonable. -Ed]

HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday, Feb. 24. THE ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 11 July 1835

HOUSE OF COMMONS. Tuesday, Feb. 24. THE ADDRESS. The Speaker read a copy of the King's Speech, as delivered in the House of Lords. Lord Sandon moved, and Mr. Bramston seconded, the Address. Lord Morpeth, in a powerful and caustic speech, charged the present Ministry with the most glaring inconsistency in pretending to be Reformers, and at the same time dissolving a Parliament because it held a majority of Reformers ! What misdemeanors had that Parliament com- mitted ? It cherished a spirit of loyal attachment to the crown-it had exhibited a most inviolate adherence to the maintenance of the public cre- dit-it had enforced economy-it had abolished ßlavery--true, it had manifested a desire to facilitate tiie admission of Dissenters into the Universities (cheers), and it had shown symptoms of an in-1 clination to accommodate the secular dimensions of the Irish Church to the spiritual exigencies of its flocks (cheers.) J$ut, Sir, that Parliament was dismissed in the middle of the recess...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 July 1835

EXTRACTS. French Woollen Manufactures. -An inquiry has been instituted in Paris on the subject ol' the woollen manufactures of France, and several proprietors of lactones have been ex-1 amined. The report is given in the form of question and answer. It is stated that there is no longer occasion for a prohibition of foreign woollens, but that a pro- tecting duty would be requisite, especially as re- gards the manufacture of Saxony. The quantity exported amounts to two-thirds of the produce of the manufactories to the United States, South America, England, Holland, Italy, Belgium, and a trifle to Russia. The quantity made annually is estimated at the \alue of twenty millions of francs of undressed goods. Prices during the last ten years have declined very considerably. An eil of merinos, which now sells at 9f., was well worth at the beginning of the manufacture 36f. to 4Of. A great deal of the wool is bought in Ger- many. M. Lupin being ashed how much wool he bought annually, answered...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JULY 18, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 18 July 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, JULY l8, 1835. By the Skerne from the Cape of Good Hope we have our file of the Cape Advertiser to the 30th May, from which Journal we have made the   following extracts. No further European News has transpired, than that already derived from the above Journal, and which was received by the Sir David Ogilby. Sir Benjamin D'Urban announces that seven thousand square miles of Territory haye been added to the Colony. From this Territory the Caffer Chiefs " with their Tribes" are expelled for ever. And the Caffers are officially pronounced to be "irreclaimable savages".   Thus in the course of sixteen years the Caffers have benn deprived by the British Government of eleven thousand square miles of Territory, and the   whole nation is now compressed into a corner of their ancient possessions-where there is not the   means of subsistence for one-half of their number. It is doubtful, we humbly sug...

MODERN MISTAKES IN THE PRINCIPLES OF EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 25 July 1835

MODERN MISTAKES IN THE PRIN- CIPLES OF EMIGRATION. We have already adverted to the policy pursued by the late administration, indeed we may say since the days of the late Earl Bathurst, with re- gard to colonization. Things were going on very well both in America and Australia, until ajll at once some remarkably wise man started up, who, like all other wonderfully clever fellows, discovered all at once that we were all wrong. Your colo- nies are all ruined, said he, by permitting your settlers to scatter themselves too widely. This is the rock (far out to sea of course) on which they all split. Look at Corinth ! Look at Carthage ! (As if these limited commercial colonies had any similarity with the colonization of the present day). 4 An impatience of regular and combined labor. -a restless ambition of independence, this sago monitor goes on to affirm, scatters the numbers of your settlers, and isolates their efforts over a vast extent of country. The fljurishing colonies of antiquit...
