A NEW RIVER DISCOVERED, BY THE HON. G. F. MOORE, ESQ., ON A RECENT EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 May 1836

A NEW RIVER DISCOVERED, BY THE HON. G. F. MOORE, ESQ., ON A RECENT EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (Continued.) We were unwilling to rest so soon, but a guide, who had accompanied us, said there was no water further on ; in which (as we afterwards found) he was not speaking the truth ; but this appeared a favorite place with the natives, as there was plenty of " Yandyait" — that broad flag or sedge, the roast- ed root of which they eat with avidity. To pre- vent the necessity of mentioning the particular description of the character of this valley, which I marked in my Journal, I may say at once that it greatly resembles the place called Ebenezer Flats, on the York road — the soil on the hills a stiff red loam, softening in quality, and darkening in color, as it descends. The trees are (in order as you descend from the high grounds) Wando (white gum with a rusty tinge), Kardan (red-gum), Mangart (raspberry-jam), Toart (the York gum), casuarina, wattle, and swamp oak. The stone consists ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 21 May 1836

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette" Sir, — I enclose you a few notes and observations on the projected new line of road to Northam. To the settlers lowest down on the Avon, the dis- tance will not be more than one-half what it is by way of York. Besides having to pass through a country much better supplied with water and grass, the road from Guildford may be considerably shortened, by turning to the hills somewhere behind Mr. Brockman's farm, and making for the top of Yellaly, about a mile back The natives say the best cart road is to be found in this direction ; the road may also be shortened by mak- ing the Avon three or four miles higher up than we made it On going up the river I observed an opening among the hills to the west, which is like-   ly to be the termination of the beautiful valley of Gingilly, where it lay to the right of our line. As the rich country we passed through on our re- turn seems to be a continuation of the same country to the...

THE WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL. SATURDAY, MAY 21, 1836 "Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground of undeviating panegyric." Our Correspondent Mr. Drummond has kindly favored us with a description       of the country passed over, in company with Capt. Whitfield and Mr. Anderson, which appears in our present number This is one of the private expeditions we have alluded to so highly redounding to the credit and enterprise of our settlers, who, as we have before stated, at private cost, risk and inconvenience, are daily opening to our knowledge the hidden resources of the territory In a para- graph in which we noticed the commend- able alacrity of our brother colonists, we   unconsciously omitted Mr. Drummond's and Mr. Anderson's names, as connected with the expedition. The information conveyed by Mr. Drummond, in his second letter, r...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

EXTRACTS. Free Trade to China.-Its evil consequences have already begun to show themselves The most respectable of the Hong merchants have retired from business, and the rest are either unable or unwilling to advance a shil- ling to enable the poor cultivators of tea to prepare a usual supply, though 40,000 tons of shipping were expected at Can* ton : but we shall, notwithstanding, have some te tí, and it is as well that our read- ers should know what sort of tea it will be. Our information is from an eye- witness of unquestionable authority, recently arrived in England from China. On the opposite side of the river to, and at a short distance from, Canton, is a manufactory /or converting the very worst kind of coarse black tea into green ; it is well known in Canton by the name of Wo-ping, and was always rejected by the East India Company. The plan is to stir it about on iron plates moderately heated, mixing it up with a composition of tumeric, indigo, and white lead, by which proce...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." , Sir,-I remember about twelve months I hack you made some remarks in your .paper about colonial banking ; I am sorry that my own case should so strongly confirm them-and I shall be glad if, as a warning to those who may be circumstanced as I was, you will publish this letter. About a year aga I took a loan of thirty-five pieces of paper called pound notes; I gave security, and have punctually paid the interest, vim-, 25 per cent. I was till lately led to suppose that the principal would not be called in. Judge my surprise, when I saw my pro- perty advertised for sale, in virtue of the mortgage deck. On this-, I made every effort to raise the money, and was en- abled to offer my hard-hearted creditor 20/. in cash, and the bill of a respectable person for the remainder at 3 months. This was refused ; and thus for the paltry balance remaining, 1 was exposed to the loss of my house and grant on Mount Eliza, and my land at the Lakes, and had it not...

PROCEEDINGS OF LEARNED SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

proceedings of learned societies. At the Philosophical Institution, held at the Pig and Tinder Box, in Liquorpond-street, a letter was read by Swaney Suck-Egg, Esq, on the possi- bility of extending the realms of space, and adding to the duration of eternity. In the same essay, he also satisfactorily proved, that two and too do not make four; that Blaok is very often white ; and that a Chancery suit has shown to many a man, that what has a beginning does not necessarily al- ways'have an end.-As a new mode of raising the wind was also communicated to this society by Jeremy Diddler, Esq. ; a very useful invention for bröken-down gamblers, ruined spendthrifts, insol-. vent tradesmen, and 'Change Alley wadd ers.

POETRY. ON THE LAUNCH OF THE "LADY STIRLING." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

POETRY. ON THE LAUNCH OF THE "LADY STIRLING." Seven years ago these waters still Reflected but the lonely hill, Or giant trees, that darkly threw Deep shadow on their mirror'd blue. No sound was in the forest heard, Save the flitting wing of the bright plumed bird, Or the silver fish, in its gladsome leap, Rousing dull echo from her sleep ; No track was on the mountain's breast, And the River lay, as it loved to rest ; *And the savage yell zb it rose on high ; And the answering tone of the wild warcrj*-* Were the only soi.nds that told of man, On thy wood-crowned margin, Silver Swan I From Mount Eliza's roeky brow, How changed the scene I look on now ; Where waved the bulrush high and rank, The cottage garden decks the bank ; Where frowned the forest tere and brown,' In placid beauty lies the town ; Where once the gladdening sun-beam Fell Unwelcomed in the forest dell His glorious rays, refracted beam, In many a window's golden gleam ; Where erst the moveless waters lay Reposing in ...

A. NEW RIVER DISCOVERED, BY THE HON. G. F. MOORE, ESQ., ON A RECENT EXCURSION TO THE NORTHWARD. (Concluded.) It was here that Weenat was hailed from a dis- tance by a native woman with a question which appeared at the time very singular, and which we had occasion to remember afterwards. As we had not seen a native in all this district, and were anxious to get information as to whereabouts we were, we wished her to approach and answer our questions. But "Guinny Ganmaliaty mocone ahi ?" (literally, " Are you the likeness of Ganmaliaty, or his son ?*') was her oft repeated question ; and when Weenat answered in the negative, she kept up this sort of distant parley, for a time, till she secured the retreat of a child, which we saw steal- ing away, and then she disappeared herself, and no longer answered to our call, though we shouted lustily, in hope of inducing somebody to come to us. It was the more provoking, as a short time after we came upon a piece of ground all trodden over with ...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir, — Trusting to your willingness to insert, in your paper, any suggestion that may be of public service, I presume to call your attention to what I cannot help considering a strange waste of the Colonial Revenue. I have diligently inquired among all my ac- quaintance, what advantages we, the settlers, derive from the Native Institution ; and they all tell me they do not know of any good whatever resulting from it. The experience of every one who has had occasion to go over the hills will bear me out in asserting, that the natives there (who are out of the reach of any influence from the In- stitution) are more manageable, and less presum- ing, than they are here. If the Institution, there- fore, does us no harm, it certainly does us no good. If it is intended for the purpose of acquiring the knowledge of the language, character and habits of the natives, I cannot find that we are any the wiser for it. I have never heard of an...

OBSERVATIONS ON THE PROJECTED NEW LINE OF ROAD TO NORTHAM, BY MR. JAMES DRUMMOND. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 28 May 1836

OBSERVATIONS ON THE PROJECTED NEW LINE OF ROAD TO NORTHAM, BY MR. JAMES DRUMMOND. (Continued from our last) Friday night. — We slept by a pool of water in the Avon, which we supposed to be the lower end of Mr. Anderson's grant. Saturday we determined to spend on our different estates. We crossed the hill supposed to be in front of my grant, and found the barren land extended further back than I at first supposed ; but we found good land and water behind it, in the bed of a small brook. I learned from Babbing that this place was called Duidgee, and that it is a favorite haunt for the natives, no doubt, on account of some of its natural produc- tions. The cat's tail, or reed mace, — the plant described by Mr. Moore as a sort of flag or sedge, — grows in abundance in the bed of the stream. This plant is one of great importance to the natives, as furnishing a great portion of the food of their women and cnildren, for several months in the year ; it is described with a mark of doubt, in ...

THE           WESTERN AUSTRALIAN JOURNAL.   SATURDAY, MAY 28, 1836. "Neither conscience nor taste will suffer me to fight one class or interest against another, for separate benefit, or to take the narrow ground   of undeviating panegyric" The objects contemplated originally in the formation of the institution for the natives, under the care of Mr. F. Arm- strong, the interpreter, were, to afford protection to the natives from violence, whether from each other or from white people, medical aid in time of sickness, and a regular supply of food ensured by cautious guidance, and a provident su- perintendence. As far as we can see, these objects have been attained; the settlers therefore, and the aborigines, do derive advantages from this native insti- tution, and we must say we should be very reluctant to recommend its aban- donment. The knowledge of the native language acquired by Mr. Armstrong ...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 4 June 1836

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette." Sir,—The present state of friendly intercourse between the settlers and the aborigines of the colony affords a favora- ble opportunity to collect and record whatever memorials they have preserved of their history and customs, some of   which, it is to be hoped, will soon be forgotten. While others are daily chang-   ing some of them, not for the better, a collection and translation of their poetry would throw much light upon these subjects. It is well known that many of the natives can repeat poems upon various subjects, for hours together. I send you a sample of their poetry, but I do not pretend to be able to translate it. The words are written down so as to express as near as possible the sounds the natives give them in pronouncing them. A literal translation of them from any of your correspondents would much oblige A Constant Reader. P.S.—Perhaps it may relate to the feasts the black men were formerly in the habit ...

To the Editor of "The Perth Gazette." [Newspaper Article] — The Perth Gazette and Western Australian Journal — 4 June 1836

To the Editor of " The Perth Gazette," Sir,-I noticed, with considerable surprise, in the Perth Gazette of the 28th May, a letter from J. H. Monger, regarding a sale of his property under a mortgage deed. Its style and ortho- graphy are so superior to Mi. Monger's talents as a letter-writer, that I presume he has had the assistance of a " kind friend " of his creditor ; but as the public may be misled by such'statements, it be- comes my duty to contradict them. Last year a judgment was recovered in the Civil Court against Mr. Monger. The plaintiff offered to take one hundred freres of land from the defendant at 7s. per acre, in extinction oí the judgment debt ; but this offer was indignantly refused. Mr. Monger tried every means in his power to procure money to satisfy this judgment, but without effect; till atlast, through the kindness of his <f hard-heart- ed creditor," as he most ungratefully calls him, and at Mr. Monger's pressing entreaties, the plaintiff in that act...

To the Editor of the " Perth Gazette." Sir,-Observing in your paper of last Saturday the letter of X. Y. Z., relative to the Native Insti- tution, which he considers useless, a strange waste of Colonial Revenue, and the continuance of it a piece of extravagance on the part of the Govern- ment;-In the first place, how far the institution has proved, as he professes, useless, let me only call to his recollection the situation in which we stood with the natives when the Governor found it prudent to establish that Institution, and to ap- point Mr. F. Armstrong Interpreter, whose knowledge of the language, and general acquaint- ance with the natives, enabled him to converse with them on matters which they must nesces sarily have been, and might long have remained, wholly ignorant of. Is is not evident to every person, that until some one or other acquired a knowledge of the native language, no understanding whatever with the natives could have been effected, and that we must have continu...
