THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1835. Active preparations are making for the equip- ment of the Expedition to the Southward, under the direction of the Hon. the Surveyor General, J. S. Roe, Esq. His Excellency the Governor, it is generally believed, will not accompany this Ex- pedition, as was originally intended,-but will proceed to King George's Sound in H. M/s Sloop of war Zebra. Should the party reach the Sound before the departure of the Zebra from that port, it is expected that Captain McCrea will be solicit- ed to convey them to Doubtful Island Bay, from whence, after making a detour through that neighbourhood, they will proceed on their route home, over a portion of our Western territory hitherto unexplored. If this arrangement can be accomplished,-in effecting which, we feel per «uaded, we ßhall have every assistance from Capt. McCrea consistent with the orders by which he is "governed,-we shall obtain a knowledge of a vast extent of country consider...

(ADVER TISEMENT.) To the Editor of " The Perth. Gazette:* Mr. Editor,-Observing in your last number a statement of a transaction published by Mr. King, I conceive it due to Mr. Lewis, as his friend in this affair, to place this matter in its proper light, Mr. King having studiously omitted to give publicity to the note he received, and the answer he sent, from which this matter originated. It will therefore be necessary for me to commence the affair at its source, and leave the public to judge of its merits. On the 7th July, Mr. King called on Mr. Lewis and asked him to lend him a small sum, to be returned in a few days ; and which was, after all this business, only repaid on the 7th instant. On the 15th of August, in the morning, Mr. Lewis .wrote a note, couched, as far as his recollection serves him, in the following words : " Dear Sir,-As I am now making up my accounts, I shall be obliged by your paying me the £5. borrowed on the 1th July y and which you promised to pay in a few ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." THE LATE TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 September 1835
CORRESPONDENCE. -000 To the Editor oj " The Perth Gazette." THE LATE TRIAL. My dear Sir,-lu common with all your friends, I have to deplore the unfortunate issue of the trial Clark v. yourseJi, and in a fit of niusjng over your last publication, was led into the follow- ing speculation upon what is not libellous, or under what circumstances an action will lie. \ ou may safely state, that a cow died at a farm on the Swan, avoiding any particulars,-for you will assuredly have an action brought against you, by either the parties present, or the servants of the gentleman on whose farm the animal met or came to her death. But you must not say that a sheep was killed, to save its life, on board a ship,-sup- pose the Skerne, for instance,-and was eaten by the passengers. You may safely state, that captains of vessels invariably treat their passengers with the greatest regard for their comfort, and that not a single in- dividual suffered any inconvenience on his or her passage to this Colon...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1835 -ooo We alluded last week to the active preparations which were on foot for the dispatch of the expedition to the South- ward ; these have heen followed up during the week, uid, we believe, it is finally arranged, that the party to pro- ceed in advance, to mark out the road, and to construct temporary bridges, will start on Saturday next. This party will consist principally of the settlers about to establish themselves in the Hotham district ; and in consideration of their performing this public benefit, they are to be allowed a certain amount towards defraying the sum required for the com- pletion of their location duties. The Hon. the Surveyor-rGeneral, J. S. Roe, Esq., will follow in the course of a few days, and will place each party on his respective grant, marking the boundaries of each, to obviate any misunderstanding as to this fruitful source of unpleasant- ness and disagreement between neigh- bours.
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 September 1835
VARIETIES. Governess.-An excellent story ap- peared not long since in a book on education, relative to a governess. A lady wrote to her son, requesting him to look out for euch a lady as she described, and such as is ordinarily expected in a governess ; that is to say, all accomplished, with the disposition of an angeL The gentleman wrote back, saying that he had long been looking for such a person, and that when he found her, he should not recommend her for a governess to his mother, but take her to himself for a wife. The following advertisement is actually cut out of the Times of one of the days of last month : ''Wanted in a gentleman's family, a young lady, as Nursery Governess, to instruct two young ladies in French, music, and singing, with the usual branches of education, and to take the entire charge of their wardrobe.

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor oj " The Perth Gazette." Sir,- As y ur valuable Journal is always opea to the complaints of the injured and oppressed, I shall feel obliged by your giving publicity to the following : A few weeks after the arrival of the Skerne in. this Colony, I engaged with Captain Clark in the capacity of steward to his vessel from hence to the Cape of Good Hope, where it w*s my intention-to remain, until 1 had a favorable opportunity of proceeding to England. .after the return of the Skerne, through stress of w-v'( -i.

METHODS OF FARMING IN NORTH AMERICA. (From Hintori a History and Topography of the United States.) "The cultivation of the mulberry*tree, ami the raising of silk-worms, have occupied a considerable and increasing portion of attention in the United States, and may be considered as a branch of agriculture the least pre occupied, and most open to energetic pursuit that the country affords. Be- fore the revolution, attempts were made to produce silk in Georgia with some success ; but circum- stances were unfavorable, and ultimately they were abandoned. cewing silk, indeed, has been made for upwards of seventy years, and still continues to be made in the state of Connecticut, and in some other parts of the Union ; but this silk is oí so in- ferior a quality, that it not only cannot be exported abroad, but cannot even find a cash price in the domestic markets. It is disposed of in barter among the farmers, and is acknowledged not io be fit to compete *vith the same article imported from E...
