-UÜO To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-A small volume has reached this Colony «ntitied "The New British Province of South Australia, or a Description of the Country, illus- trated by charts and views, with an account of the principles, objects, plan, and prospects of the Colony ;"' in which the author or compiler, by de- sign or ignorance, makes a number of most gross and unfounded statements as to the condition of this Colony, and of the Settlers. A Mr. Robert Gouger, well known for his abuse of this settlement, is stated in the book to be the compiler-I mean the person w ho applied to individuals here to get him appointed Agent to this Colony, upon the failure oi a former attempt to establish a settlement on the South coast of Australia ; with which attempt he was connected. Had the misstatements I wish to notice, Mr Editor, been connned to this Mr. Gouger, no ne ht-re would have thought them worth noller ; but as they are now sanctioned, and even publicly repeated by me...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1835 We have been kindly favored with the following " Notes from his Excellency Sir James Stirling's Journal of his ex- pedition to King George's Sound." The country between the William's and the high Koi-kyeunreuf Range, behind King George's Sound, is represented to us to resemble, in its general character, the district of York. The transitions from good to bad land on the line of road taken by the party, are frequent and sudden. One-quarter of the whole sur- face appeared to be of the very richest description of grass land, another fourth as entirely and hopelessly useless, and the remaining half as indifferent land, &nbsp; composed of brown sandy loam, of a meagre quality, bearing at present white gum-trees, and a little thin grass, but not incapable of cultivation. The inten- tion of the party was, as we have before intimated, to proceed from the William's to Doubtful Island Bay ; and on this line it had proceeded to...

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-Permit me, through your next paper, to say a few words in answer to the letter of a Con- stant Reader, which appeared in your columns last week. The writer appears to be full of regrets &nbsp; and lamentations, which I will try to relieve Mr. Hillman is fortunate that he feels satisfied with &nbsp; him . I must remind the Constant Reader that those districts he alludes to were noticed by Capt. Bannister "years back" and that land was taken up by settlers, in consequence of his report. I must also tell him that it is the business either of the settler or the Government; as circumstances may require to notice and report on these matters, and that the Government have always with the greatest readiness and at considerable expence, furthered the objects of the settlers, in exploring &nbsp; new districts ; and that the Gentlemen "who on &nbsp; a former occasion" gave a report unite with him &nbsp; in regre...
NEW SOUTH WALES. EXPEDITION INTO THE INTERIOR. (From the "Colonist.") [CONTINUED.] TO THE HONORABLE THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. Camp West of Harvey's Range, Sept. 4, 1835. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 19 December 1835
NEW SOUTH WALES. &nbsp; EXPEDITION INTO THE INTERIOR. (From the " Colonist") [continued.] &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE HONORABLE THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. Camp West of Harvey's Range, Sept. 4,1835. SCARCELY an hour had elapsed after I had com- municated to the men my determination to return, when firing was heard from the forage party on the river. At that time a tribe of strangers just ar- rived, lay before our, camp. By amusing them and intercepting a messenger, we succeeded in prevent- ing them from joining the river tribe ; while more men and a supply of ammunition were sent to re- inforce our party on the river. These arrived just in time to prevent the sacrifice of seven of our men. A chief, to whom I had given presents and shown particular attention, had been the first to break the peace. ' The conduct of several of these tribes was very extraordinary. To conciliate them was quite hopeless, but not from any apprehen- sions on our part. On the cont...

«>4/¿£ .>*» ¿ ¿t, ¿7 im#^ofmt-#uL&$. The State of the Country.-The country is still suffering under a most afflictive drought, and unless we tire blessed with a copious supply of rain very soon, the consequences will be calamitous in the extreme. Working, and other cattle have been dying in great numbers from want of sustenance, and several of the up-country settlers have been obliged to kill their caives and lambs, from the in- ability of the cows and ewes to buckle them We j are still, however, in hopes u( abundance of rain ! about the vernal equinox, and we are most happy ' to be able to refer to the experience of a former 1 year, of a somewhat similar character to the pre- sent, in which similar expectations were cherished and happily realised. On this subject of universal interest, we gladly avail ourselves of the oppor- tunity of laying before our readers the following extract of an Address, delivered by Sir John Jami- son, to the Agricultural and Horticultural S...
COLONIZATION. Lecture on Emigration delivered in Sydney by the Rev. Dr. Lang, in the year 1833. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 December 1835
COLONIZATION. Lecture on Emigration delivered in Sydney By the Rev. Dr. Lang, in the year 1833. There is one great evil, arising from the past and present circumstances of the colony as a penal settlement, which, I conceive, it behoves every well-wisher of the colony to keep in view, when recommending any scheme of emigration to its territory. The evil I allude to is this, (hat when a few reputable families ot emigrant» are dispersed among the prison population of the territory, in- stead of elevating the corrupt mass of society around them to their own higher level in the scale of morals, the probability is, that they will them- selves gradually sink to the lower level of the surrounding population. This unfortunate tend- ency-the result of evil communications corrupting good manners-suggests the propriety of con- centrating the free emigrant agricultural popula- tion, that may arrive in the colony, as much as possible, and of forming small communities in dif- ferent parts of the t...

ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 26 December 1835
ORIGINAL POETRY. -ann On Mount Eliza's gently swelling height Musing of late I sat, and strained my sight, To catch within its orb the full expanse Of all the beauties, which the scewe enhance. On such a spot as this how sweet to feel The charms of nature o'er our senses steal ; When Peace reflected from its sunny spots, " Sooths the sad mind, and drowns all memory's blots; And as its genial influence leads us on, We feel as calm as all we look upon. Long ere by stern Necessity's command, The Emigrant had sought this distant land This lovely spot was marked by many a grace, And all those lines which nature loves to trace ; But then this Beauty was of sombre hue, And nought save nature wildness met the view ; No Fabric raised, whose bright looks catch the eyes, Alni make us think of Home and all we prize. What though the "Swan" in graceful turnings glide, No cheerful bbat had ever stem'd its tide, Or merry barks, with white sails, deck'd its face, Or skim'd its surface with their mag...

TH E WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL.

The report of the fertility of the country on the line of road marked out between this Settlement and the Sound is most gratifying, and dispels all doubt, if any existed, of the facility oí communication between the two ports. We look with considerable interest for the details of this expedition from the pen of the Hon. the Surveyor-General; but in the mean time we feel ourselves justitied, from the information we have collected, in pronouncing this survey as one of the must important we have wit- nessed since our arrival in the colony, opening as it does a most extensive tract of fine pasturage, abounding in every re- quisite for intermediate establishments, either fo...
