THE LATE MINISTRY—THE PRESS. (From "The Times.") [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 22 August 1835

THE LATE MINISTRY-THE PRESS. (From " The Times.") The system for the management of the press devised and worked by a section of the late ministry was^ accompanied by very distinct indications of the newspaper board of control. While certain members of government were busily tampering with the press, the decline of its influence was triumphantly boasted in the publications imme- diately under the dictation of the chief meddler. While he interfered with the independence of the press, and endeavoured to make it a mere tool of government, he gave out that its respect and its authority were waning. He had his reasons for the assertion ; he knew what he was abuut, and did but anticipate the eflVct he was laboring to produce. Conscious of the spirit, the object, and tendency of the system of ministerial intenerence, he, with the hastiness of a sanguine mind, assumed and affirmed that the end in view was already ac . complished, that the press was degraded and disgraced. In the Edinburgh Rt...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 22 August 1835

.-, VARIETIES. ti -._ The great moral satirist Hogarth, was once drawing in a room where many of his friends were assembled,.and among them my mother. She was then a very young woman. As she Mood by Hogarth, she expressed a wish.to draw caricature.. ** Alas, young lady," said Hogarth, " it is not a faculty to be envied Take my advice, and never draw caricature ; by the long practice of it, I have lost tlie enjoyment of beauty. I never see a face but distorted ; I never have the satisfaction to be- hold the human face divine," We may suppose that such language from Hogarth would come with great effect: his manner was very earnest, and the confession is well deserving of remem- brance.-Bishop Sanford.

COLONIAL LAW. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 August 1835

COLONIAL LAW. A gentleman at the bar, Mr. Charles Clark, has Recently published a work entitled *k A Summary pf Colonial Law," &c. It will, we think, be found p. valuable acquisition to the libraries of the pro- fession, to those of members of Parliament, and, pf all other persons engaged or interested in the {state. It appears that the work was originated by Mr. Serjeant Stephen, who placed in the hands of Mr. Clark the matter he had collected for the early portion of the volume, as it is now presented to the public. The learned Serjeant, however, has had nothing more to do with the publication, and Mr, Clark is careful and modest enough to make it understood that he alone, not Mr. Serjeant Ste- phen, is *' answerable fop all its detects, as he has .exercised uncontrolled authority over the mate- rials thus furnished to him." In fairness it should Jbe recollected that the merits of the work, too, as ipvell as the defects, must he wholly attributable to Mr. Clark, who, in ou...

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., J P., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom, J. P. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 August 1835

MAGISTRATE'S COURT. Before W. H. Mackie, Esq., J P., and the Rev. J. B. Wittenoom, J. P. Patrick King, corporal in H. M. 21st Regt., laid an information against William Ward, of Perth, for purchasing a pair of ammunition boots, issued to Thomas Fitzpatrick as regimental neces sa ies. Thomos Fitzpatrick deposed to the sale of the .boots for two bottles of .grog, the remainder of the price, which was ten shillings, to be paid in money. Fitzpatrick admitted that he was a little the worse for liquor at the time he sold the boots. He had been at. Ward's house about a week before, and then sold him a pair of braces for 2s. 6'd. William Ward, of Perth, brickmaker, stated, in his defence, that Fitzpatrick, about three weeks or a month back, offered him a pocket handkerchief for sale ; no one was present ; he asked 2s. for it, but took Is. 6d. He afterwards sold the braces as stated, but there was no mark on them. On Sa- turday last, at dinner-time, he (Fitzpatrick) took a pair of new boots ...

FRUITS OF CONVICT LABOR. (From "Dr. Lang's History of N. S. Wales.') [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 August 1835

FRUITS OF CONVICT LABOR. j (From " Dr. Lang's History ofÑ. S. Wales:) "The grand seeiet in the management vi convict servants is to treat them with kindness, and at the s^me time with firmness ; to speak to them in a conciliating manner, and at the same time to keep them constantly employed ; and it is nothing less than absolute blindness to his ow n interest, and a want of common sense, amounting to a downright infatuation, that can lead any master to treat them otherwise. It must be ac- knowledged, however, that such infutation has prevailed in New South Wales to a lamentable extent ; a-id has greau) retarded the advancement of the colony On the one hand, and occasioned much misery on the other. " A free emigrant settler, who has perhaps been riding about the country for a fortnight,-neglect- ing his own affairs and troubling his neighbour, returns to his farm, and finds that his convict ser- vants have been very idle during his absence, lie talks to them on the ¡subject, and his ...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1835 [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 August 1835

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1835 -ooo We noticed a few weeks back, that Mr. Henty was upon the point of making an excursion to the southward. Of this trip he has obligingly favored us with the following outline : With a small party, accompanied by three Murray River natives, he left the Murray on Wednesday, the 12th August, directing, their course for the hills at the back of Port Leschenault. On the first night they bivouacked on the banks of the southern estuary, about 14 miles from the settlement at the Murray, on a good flat, with abundant feed for their horses. On Thursday, could not proceed, owing to the incessant rains, until about half past two in the afternoon ; they travelled   about eight miles, and bivouacked for the, night at the mouth of the Harvey River, having passed over a sandy country. On Friday, started at 7 o'clock endeavour- ing to make the hills ; had to travel a very circuitous route, and over swampy ground. The natives c...

RETURN OF THE "SKERNE." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 29 August 1835

RETURN OF THE " SKERNE.' The brig Skerne, Captain Clark, which vessel left this on Tuesday last, the 18th hist, after en- countering a heavy' gale off the coast for one Week, put back to Garden Island on Tuesday last, eut, we are happy to find, without having sustain- ed any injury. The passengers « were seriously inconvenienced, the accommodations being very indifferent, and the supplies of suitable necessaries woefully indifferent. This will form the subject of legal investigation on the arrival of the vessel at the Mauritius. We are indebted to one of the passengers foi the following short narrative. The Mr. Toby alluded to was the Captain of our Colo- nial Schooner Ellen, previously to her being con- demned and sold on her last trip to Hobart Town ; than whom no person is better acquainted with our harbours and coast ;-it was a moet providential circumstance that he chanced to be on board, otherwise the vessel must inevitably have been lost, and probably many lives would have be...

ÓORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette* Sir,-lour remark last week relative to the probability of the disappointment the settlers will most likely meet with at the ensuing harvest, is perfectly" just, as far as the public in general are concerned ; ' but you are committing a gross in- justice towards some few individuals, who may, perhaps, have expended their all in endeavouring to accomplish that so desirable a public benefit, a substantial Corn Mill,'by recommending a sub-' scription to be raised for the purpose of getting up a new Mill, to be driven by the power of Steam, when there i« abundance of water to be had for the getting. Why, not raise a subscription for com- pleting one or more of the "imperfect" or "in- adequate" Mills that'have already been at'work for the public, for several years. I have no doubt the1 Local Government would give every reasonable facility for so laudable an undertaking. , If a subscription could be raised for such a pur- pose, there is...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1835. -000 By H. M. Sloop of war Zebra, we have intelli- gence from Madras up to the 5th July, and have received late papers, from which we have extracted an account of this Colony, published by Dr. Milligan, of H. M/s 63rd Regiment, founded on information derived from four years' residence amongst us, in the early stage of the Colony. Many improvements have since then been effected, and much advancement has been made ; but as a picture of the climate, by the pen of a medical Gentleman, the work will prove of much interest and advantage, and we can honestly pronounce it fault- less. We cannot learn that there is any immediate prospect of arrivals from that quarter, notwithstand- ing the general opinion is favprable towards us. ßße ßwpkntent.

ARRIVAL OF THE » ZEBRA" (Continued) The Zebra experienced a succession of heavy gales cff this coast, and was placed in a most perilous situation, in endeavouring to make what is termed the Garden Island passage into Cockburn Sound. The buoys placed liiere lo mark off the passage have been carried away during the recent gales. The mabier of the Zebra, therefore, after attempting to work through it, was obliged to cast anchor, in a critical position ; from which the vessel was relieved by the opportune assistance of Mr Toby, who chanced to he on board the Skerne, in the Sound, and heard the signals for a pilot. JVe hope there is not/iing actionable in this statement. In these times it is truly dangerous to be safe !
