EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 December 1835
EXTRACTS. Aerial Steam Boat.-This is really the age of wonders, what- will the balloon gentlemen say ivhcn they see an aerial, steam-boat ploughing the atmosphere perfectly under the control of her com- mander? By the Cincinati papers we learn that a gentleman of that place, of the name of Mason, has invented au aerial steam-boat, in which he was to ascend on the 4th of July. Mr. M. is said to b3 very sanguine, having already tried a very satisfactory experiment. The boat is thus des- cribed :-" It is about ten feet long, the ribs being covered with silk, in order to render it light. The engine, of two-horse power, is placed in the middle, and turns four vertical shafts projecting uver_ the bow and stern, into each are fixed four aerial silken wings, which are made to revolve with sufficient velocity to cause the vessel to rise. Over the whole is fixed a moveable silken cover, designed to assist in counteracting the grayitating force, -at the same time tending*to assist its propulsi...

SYDNEY AND HOBART TOWN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 December 1835
SYDNEY AND HOBART TOWN NEfFS. Frauds of the Sydney Mkat and Butter. Cureks.-Our northern neighbours appear to laugh at our expense, in enjoying the perusal of the official returns of their exports to this ill-fated Colony, and the ba'ance against us. .But the matter is Very little to their credit, when we con- sider the frauds which they have so extensively perpetrated on us in the article of salt provisions, which forms two thirds of the amount of exports hither,-this is, including butter and cheese. In numerous instances, we have heard complaints of the grossest frauds in packing Sydney beef, pork, and butter. We have ourselves bought some of the former, which, on opening the casks, appeared of the finest quality and in good preservation, but, on moving the top layer at either end, we found the worst pieces of very inferior beasts, and in the most offensive state; indeed, the contents are now. and -have been for six months, laying in our' back yard, as a specimen of the honesty of...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 December 1835
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1835 The intelligence by the Tim from Sydney is any thing but favorable. In that quarter they had ex- perienced a drought for eight months, and the country, in consequence, is represented to us to be in a deplorable state. From some of the most valuable studs, a loss of twenty-seven horses had' been experienced in one day. On the sheep-farms betw"3n 2 and 300 sheep was the average daily ?¿. Hay was up to ¿¿22. per ton. The con- tractors for fresh meat for the supply of Govern- ment were suffering severely. A Gentleman (Mr. Carey) who left this a (ew months back with the intention of purchasing fine-woolled sheep for this market, had selected 3UU sheep, for which he paid £i. per head, but owing to the scarcity of fodder, it is supposed they will stand him in £2. 10s. landed here, provided he is successful in getting them down to the port, he having purchased theu^ on a farm ia the country. We have not received any paper» by this o...

CORRESPONDENCE. -000 To the Editor of '" The Perth Gazette:' Sir,- Having mentioned the circumstance of the late awful hail storm, al York, to the natives that, frequent the institution, they told me that one of the same kind happened here sometime before the white people carne to live in their country ; and &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; of which I send you the following particulars: They state, that about eight or nine years ago, a storm of hailstones fell in this neighbourhood, ex- tending about two miles across, coming on about midday, and continuing until about four o'clock ia the afternoon (as near as they can point out the sun to have been). A north-west wind blew at the time ; there was very heavy thunder with it, and the rain fell in torrents. It killed swans, ducks, pigeons, and all kinds of birds; and sal- mon, snappers, mullet, and fish of all sorts were found on the shores after the storm had subsided. The natives made themselves houses on its coming on, t...
THE "TIM," AN AMERICAN BRIG. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 5 December 1835
THE "TIM", AN AMERICAN BRIG. Considerable alarm and anxiety has prevailed for the last day or two, arising out of the report that this vessel, on the night of the 2d instant, had been wrecked, in an attempt to make the Garden Island Passage into Cockburn Sound. Various rumours have gained circulation respecting thi» circumstance, but the following particulars, which we have collected from Mr. Dring, the only per- son who has landed from the vessel, and who, in fact, pointed out the channel, must be most deserv- ing of credit :— Mr. Dring states, that, having been for 48 hours upon a lee-shore, the wind blowing strong from the west and by north, it was thought advisable to run into the anchorage by night. Although moon- light, the moon at intervals was clouded. They made Garden Island after dark, passed, as they conceived, Casuarian Shoal, and succeeded in get- ting through the Passage ; but in the endeavour to make Gage's Roads (the vessel only drawing eight-feet water) they struck ...

THE EUPHRATES EXPEDITION. (From the Malt[?] Government Gazette, March 18.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 December 1835
THE EUPHRATES EXPEDITION. (From the M alta Government Gazette, March l8.) The experiment of a steam communication between our Indian possessions and the mother country, was first tried, at a great expense, in the vear Í825, by the Enterpriz'e, which made the voyage by the Cape of Good Hope to Calcutta in 113 days ; but, as the average of a sailing vessel is not more than 120 or 130 days, no advantage ade- quate to the sacrifices was to be gained by the old route. Ever since that period it has been a favorite speculation to establish a communication across the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean, by which a great saving of distance and of time may begained^ in the transmission of mails and the passage of travellers to and from India. This object was considered so desirable in the last Parliament, that a sum of 20,000¿. was voted to promote it Two lines present themselves, namely :-thai by Egypt and the Red Sea, and that by Syria, the Euphrates* and the Persian Gulf. The former of the&...

CORRESPONDENCE. -000 To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." SitR- I have read, in one oí your late numbers^' Mr. Hillman'« account of the expedition to th» William and Hotham districts, and feel satisfied he has said every thing which the land in ihat quartet merits. May I ask why it is, that those district« have not, years back, been noticed, and whether it is the business of the settler, or that of the Govern- ment, to proceed and report upon these mattera? There is certainly nothing calculated to mislead in Mr. Hillinan's report, and it i* to be regretted that j those gentlemen who upon a lormer ucea ¿¡on visit ] ed that quarter, weie not more act mate ni report- ing as io the extent of g"od land, which now appears so Lmiud I wou.d further ask how it is , that Mr. Ililhnan, in his Journal, names the Avon-a river not in existei.ee. accoiding.to Mr, Blands account I), is to be lamented that the i expedition to the Sound, over .Bannister's track ^ ; had noi been proceeded upon four ...

Lionel Samson - On a chèque or order for 16L. 13s. 4d. drawn by defend- ant on a Mr. Steel, in plaintiff's favor, and &nbsp; &nbsp; dishonored. Defence-That the order was drawn by defend- ant in his capacity of agent for Mr. P. H.

SYDNEY. EXPLORING THE INTERIOR. TO BY MAJOR MITCHELL. (From the " Colonist") TO THE HONORABLE THE COLONIAL SECRFf ARY. Camp West of Harvey's Range, Sept. 4, 1835. Sir,-I have the honor to submit for the in- formation of His Excellency the Governor, the following report of the progress of the party, and result of the expedition which His Excellency was pleased to place under my command, for the pur- pose of exploring the course of the River Darling. Having joined the party at Buree on the 5th of April, I reconnoitred the country on the following dav, and on the 7th we proceeded, by a route not hitherto explored, to that part of the Darling specified in my i 'structions. My plan was to pro- ceed along the high ground between the Rivers Lachlan and Macquarie, and which extended fur- ther into the interior than had been explored. Thus I hoped to avoid the necessity of crossing any rivers, or incurring any risk of delay from floods, such as those which formerly at the same season of the ...

NEW SOUTH WALES. ~-000-7 REMARKABLE HAIL-STORM AT NEWCASTLE , (From a Correspondent to .' The Colonist") Om Saturday the 19th September, the town of Newcastle, on the Hunter,, was visited by a thunder-storm, the recollection of which, from its accompanying phenomena will not soon be oblite- rate! from the memory of its inhabitants. On the day preceding there had been a hot wind from the N.W.,' the thermometer in the shade under my Verandah.having stood at 84° at 1 p.m , and the evening having set in with lightning to the S.S.E and S.W., the thermometer at 8 p.m. having showed 70°, while showers fell at intervals during the night, to the great refreshment of the cattle after so long a period of dry weather. At 8 a.m. on Saturday the 19th, the thermometer stood at 62°, the morning being dark and showery, and at 2 p m. it had risen to 66°. On a sudden, while sitting in my house-the roof of which is by no means one of the s'rougest-after a flash of lightning accom- panied by thunder, I ...
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 12 December 1835
THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. His Excellency Sir James Stirling &nbsp; arrived at Perth, from King George's Sound, this afternoon, after an absence of eight weeks. We have not been able to collect the particulars of His Excellen- cy's expedition over-land to King George's Sound in time for our present &nbsp; number, but we are happy to find that the report of the country traversed over is highly favorable. After the arrival oí the party at Albany, K.G.'s S., an ex- cursion was made to Doubful Island &nbsp; Bay, but the appearance of the country hus not realised the sanguine expecta- tions which were entertained of it. There is good land in that neighbourhood, but not to the extent represented. The Hon. J. S. Roe, Esq., Surveyor-General, was to leave King George's Sound, with a party, about this time, and would pro- ceed home over-land, directing his course inland, as far as practicable, and coming &nbsp; in by way of York A detailed account of these...
