To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 February 1836

i To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-Allow me to draw your attention to a proposition made some time back, and now again agitated, with reference to the erection of a Church in the town of Perth. The plan proposed I under- stand to be, to issue a certain number of shares at the rate of 201. or 252. each. These, I fear, will be taken up by too few of my church-going neigh- bours, to leave the slightest hope of the object being accomplished. I intend to propose to the Committee (in which I take a great interest) for corresponding with the London Committee, to .move the Home Government, or those disposed to befriend the cause of religion, to a consideration of our wants, and when they are told, that, after six years' residence here, we have but a rush building, only affording room for 160 souls, out of a population of 600, if their hearts are not warmed to assist «is, there is less charitable and religious feeling in the breasts of our countrymen, than I have ever cherished th...

As it has been asserted, and a vulgar prejudice entertained, that we were under the trammels of Government, we consider it incumbent upon us to offer some few observations., to correct such an impression, and to elucidate the position in which, as a public Journalist, we have been and are at present placed. We approach the subject with a determination to be as concise and perspicuous as possible. In the first place-we btate it fearlessly-we have never been influenced directly or indirectly in...

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,-I noticed the observations you made in your Paper of the 13th inst, respecting a protect- ing duty upon foreign wheat and flour imported into this Colony. In answer to it, I beg leave to state my rea- sons why a small progressive duty, for a few years, on wheat and flour, when the price is be- low what would remunerate the farmer and miller, for hil» capita!, labour, and expenses attending growing of whea^and, manufacturing flour. The settler farmers of this infant Colony have many more difficulties to contend with, than colo- nies of 30 to 50 years' standing. They have their seasons to learn, the quality'of the soils to find out, the extra expense in clearing and getting their lands in cultivation, and locating themselves ; the high price of labor a«d provisions (fresh meat Is. 3d. per lb.) Compare them with the prices in the Sister Colonies (and mark the difference) a (jonfined capital for want of banking companies, with the liitle assis...

SALES BY AUCTION. Amongst the Acts recently passed in the neighbouring Colony of Van Diemen's Land, we observe one to regulate Sales by Auction. The following is the substance of the Act, and may not be undeserving the attention of the Members of our Legislative Council. The public ought to be protected in this particular; ai> the case now stands, they are open to all sorts of abuse : No. 6 i* ' an act for regulating sales by auc- tion.' Section 1. If any person shall, after the first of . October, sell by auction without license, he shall forleit for every such offence 200/., to be recover- ed by action of debt or of information in the Supreme Court of Van Diemen's Land-one-half to the King, the other to the person suing. 2. Sets forth the mode of obtaining license. 3. License to be 50/., and dated on the day on which it is issued, and to he for oi-c year. 4.

The State and Position of Western Australia; by F. C. Irwin, late Commandant of the Troops, and acting Governor of the Colony. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 20 February 1836

The State and Position of Western Australia ; by F. C. Irwin, late Commandant of the Troops, and acting Governor of the Colony. This little work has not obtained that notice at our hands, which its general utility demanded, owing to the pressure of other matter of a local nature, which we would have willingly postponed, as connected with our Courts of Law ; but the in- satiable desire for scandal,' from which, it would appear, this Colony is not exempt, and the anxiety we have at all times evinced to chroniclet-passing events, have subverted our intention. Í his will be fully established by a reference to our columns for the past month. The purpose the author of this work had in view, in submitting it to the public, is honorably avowed in the following introductory paragraph : " The author writes for the enterprisirg, but rational and sober-mindnd, emigrant. If the ac- count he has to give of the resources of Western Australia present unexpected attractions, he has no explanation.to...

\ i ' THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. , SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21\ 1836 -000 "Neither conscience nor taste will svffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground ofundeviating panegyric" Our publie buildings at Perth are gradually advancing, to the improvement of our picturesque little capital of the territory. These aré essential for the employment of our artizans, of whom we have many practised and clever hands, as well as for the convenience and facility of transacting the public affairs of the colony. It has long been a source of general complaint that the rush building eclipt a church, should be applied to the two purposes-for divine worship and wrangling disputation. We ard happy to find that before long we shall have a court house, of moderate dimensions, it is true, but indicative we hope of the diminution of court intrigues. The site fixed upon for this new building is near the old Institution house,,,on a line with the...

To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette."' , Sir,-Öbservjng in your paper of the 20th hist, an epistle of " An Old Corn-Miller," relative to'| the imposition of a duty on imported wheat and| flour, when the price is too low to remunerate the farmer and miller, I solicit your favor for .the i^ sertion of a few succinct observations on this sub Ject' , . . - , -j,,.

Jo the .Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Ma.

SALE OF LAND. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 February 1836

SALE OF LAND. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) , ). We protest against the continued and indeed almost uninterrupted agricultural advancement and prosperity of the colony, notwithstanding the late extensive sales of~Crown Lands, being used in any respect as an argument for that most impoli- tic measure. It is not because the wheel continues to roll on, that we are to affirm that the vehicle has not been oppressively loaded. As well might the veteran drunkard say that ardent spirits had given him long life. He has lived, but it is in spite of that poison, without which how much bet- ter and longer might he not have lived? So though we continue still to go on, how much more should we not have advanced had these ruinous Crown land sales, and their tail, as Mr O'Connell calls it, of pauper emigration not been infused amongst us ? But though the agricultural or main interest be in a prosperous condition, we candidly admit, as indeed must always be the case in populous and mixed communites...

To the Editor of "Tile Perth (fßzetter Sir,-Some observations on the subject of im- posing restrictive duties on corn and flour having appeared last week, under the head of Corres- pondence, signed " An Old Com Miller," I be£ to submit the following, on the opposite side o*" the question, supposing ot course that you shou'.' not be supplied with better : Taxation should not commence on so essential an article of food as corn and flour, but on luxuries, in which case it acts as a kind of substitute for the ancient Sumptuary Laws in restraining useless expenditure. In our particular, case it is asserted that the farming interest requires tKe assistance of protecting duties, in order to its being able to arrive at maturity, according to the very poetical imagination of your Correspondent^ and in thft «ame > style I should say that it was very much like a medicine to cure a simple disorder, which should leave an incurable one in its place. When taxation commences, who shall say where...

He sets out by stating that the settler farmers of this Colony have many more difficulties to contend with, than those in colonies from 30 to 50 years' standing. Granted.-But have not the settler merchants, artizaus, laborers, &c, &c, some claims upon society and its rulers, for are not they struggling with most of the hardships enumerated by the Old Corn-Miller,-namely, locating themselves, the high price of provisions and labor, confined capital, no bankers, and little assistance from tjie Mother Country?.,,,And are the farmers and the Old Corn-Miller to have their lands cl...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 27 February 1836

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The present state of the crops in New South Wales, has elicited some very instructive essays in the Sydney papers, on the best means of softening the severity of similar periodical visitations, as that otherwise fine colony seems to be subject to. We extract the following passage from an able article attributed to Dr. Lang in the Sydney Colonist of the 3d September :- " We have repeatedly endeavoured to impress   upon the government and the public, the impor- tance and the absolute necessity of taking prompt and energetic measures for the formation of agri- cultural settlements. (The writer here alludes to persons who had come out under the emigration system and had received loans from government.) The rage for cattle and sheep farming will ere   long, convert the best parts of the territory into mere sheep walks and cattle runs, if the govern- ment do not adopt some plan to prevent so unde- sirable a consummation. And if some such facili...
