Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Examiner and Times — 25 April 1868
Western Australia. The following items of news are from the monthly summary of the " Perth Inquirer" of April 1: The news of the month is confined to the North-West Coast, irorn which we have the unpleasant intelligence of loss of life and property. Hitherto the native population in the new set tlements have lived on terms of peace and good-will with the settlerB; nothing beyond tha Most trivial of fences have been heard of, and even these of rare occurrence. Numbers of the natives were so well disposed as to be among the 6rst to bring en offender to punishment; and altogether it may be said that a feeling of confi dence and security from serious pil lages or raids of the aborigines pw sessed the whole white population. The intelligence now received gives, unfortunately, another aspect to the character of the natives. Authority has been opposed, and a nati.'e taken prisoner rescued by a large number, and their captors speared. The im perative course of the liesident to ap prehend th...

Hit* costume is an old dark coat, vest, and trousers, and a blue cap with an immense leather peak, which he wears at the back of his head. His pccnliarfratuie*, heavy black moustache and eyebrows, as well a* cloee-eropjicd hair, give him an es pecially corHinental appearance, and his as soclateti boifig always Gorman, ho was sup posed to be from Germany.

Examiner and Times. SATURDAY, APRIL 25, 1868. [Newspaper Article] — Warwick Examiner and Times — 25 April 1868
fainiucr mtir £iin^ SATURDAY. APRIL 25, 18C8. The importance of the New Land Ac' is every day becoming more apparent, and although during the time it was dragging its slow course through the House of Assembly people became tired and weary of reading the debates in piecemeal as they appeared every ipornlng, the interest has lately revived. We believe a large amount of uncertainty still exists as to its true meaning and as to the time when selec tions and purchases can be really made. An Act of Parliament is not thejnost interesting piece ot reading, more especially ivlien, like the present, it has been so^ changed and altered, that from^the 6tate in which it first'was brought forward, and that in which it was finally passed and became law, it could hardly he recognised as the same bill. Many parties'tnay havea'pretty correct idea of its general character, and may know much about its leading principles. But there is much besides all these that the intending" purchaser ! or lea?eho]der...
